Letter from Latin American Centres to Rafael Correa

Draft of an electronically typed open letter sent by seven PEN Centre presidents to Rafael Correa, 22 February 2012, ff. 2. In this letter the presidents of seven Latin American and Carribean PEN Centres implore Correa, President of Ecuador (2007-17), to tackle Ecuador’s climate of self-censorship and repressed free expression. The letter cites the recent release of journalists from El Universo and the authors of the book El Gran Hermano as indicators of positive change, and calls for Correa to take note of Ecuador’s violations against Article 13 of the American Convention on Human Rights.
