Transcript of a speech given by Dina Meza titled ‘Los Crimines Contra Periodistas Impulsan el Silencio en Honduras: ¿A quién le conviene tener periodistas callados?’, [Tegucigalpa], 5 Diciembre 2018, ff. 2. The conference at which Meza gave this speech was organised by the Honduran Centre in collaboration with PEN International and took place on 5 December 2018 at the Hotel Real Intercontinental in Tegucigalpa. This conference aimed to call attention to the extent to which crimes committed against journalists in Honduras have caused a chilling effect upon free expression throughout the country, and particularly focused on commemorating Juan Carlos Argeñal, a Honduran journalist who was murdered on 7 December 2013 for disseminating news about local government corruption. The Honduran Centre, alongside PEN International and other PEN Centres, supported Argeñal’s case and campaigned for justice on his behalf.
