Venezuela: Judge Lifts Ban on Weekly ‘6to Poder’

Categories: Latin America, Venezuela, Freedom of Speech, Media & Journalism

“A judge in Caracas, Venezuela, lifted an injunction against the weekly 6to Poder prohibiting its publication [1] and distribution […] The publication had been closed since Aug. 20 after publishing a photo montage portraying high-ranking female government officials as cabaret dancers [2] on the magazine's cover”, Natalia Mazotte reports for Journalism in the Americas [3]. Furthermore, Reporters Without Borders [4] is calling “for the revision or withdrawal of the charges against Leocenis García, the editor of the weekly Sexto Poder, and Dinorah Girón, its publisher”.
