Dominican Republic unions condemn attacks on reporters

At least 10 reporters and camera operators were attacked in recent days in the north and east of the country, alarming the two leading media worker unions, EFE reports.

Officers of the Dominican Journalists Guild and the National Press Workers Union (SNTP) said the most recent attacks on reporters and video operators demonstrate severe safety problems for journalists, El Nuevo Diario says.

The unions urged authorities to ensure the safety of media workers. “We will not allow our members to continue being victims of criminals,” SNTP director Fior D`Aliza Taveras said, quoted by Hoy.


The Knight Center for Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin was created in August 2002 as a professional training and outreach program for journalists in Latin America and the Caribbean. Read more about problems with freedom of press in the Dominican Republic here
