Law against 'judicial harassment,' new proposal in Colombian Senate

"More than 30 congress members filed a bill against judicial harassment of journalists and social leaders, whom people try to silence through guardianships, complaints and million-dollar. Voices from the judicial sector point out that the bill may be ambiguous and redundant.

The bill introduces into the legal system 'Anti-SLAPP provisions,' an international concept that would explain how people with power who are pointed out in journalistic pieces would take advantage of the judicial apparatus to intimidate those who publish about them."
