Human rights commission calls on Colombia’s president to stop online attacks against journalists

“The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) issued a statement advocating for freedom of the press and freedom of expression in Colombia, after President Gustavo Petro initiated a conflict with some journalists and the Foundation for Press Freedom (Flip).
