Exiled, imprisoned and spied on: The cost of reporting in Central America

"Daniel Ortega's regime in Nicaragua closes and confiscates media outlets, imprisons journalists and forces them into exile. But attacks on press freedom are spreading throughout the region: Nayib Bukele in El Salvador and other Central American presidents are following Ortega's handbook. In this special episode we talk [in Spanish] with Octavio Enriquez, a Nicaraguan journalist with more than 20 years of experience who had to continue investigating the Ortega's abuses of power from exile. Then, Gabriela Cáceres of El Faro talks about the cost of publishing investigations that the Bukele government does not want to come to light. Finally, Carlos Monterroza, former host of a current affairs program on open television, tells us how El Salvador is running out of spaces for analysis and opinion at a crucial time for the country's political future."
