Unesco Director-General Condemns Murder of Paraguayan Journalists

PARIS Unesco Director-General Irina Bokova condemned on Friday the murder of Paraguayan journalist Pablo Medina Velazquez and his assistant Antonia Maribel Almada Chamorro, who were shot dead on October 16 near Curuguaty, in southeastern Paraguay.

In a statement, Bokova called for the prosecution of those responsible for the murders, in order to prevent future acts of this kind, which cost the lives of journalists and violate the right to access information.

Medina Velazquez, who worked for the ABC Color newspaper, was investigating marihuana trafficking and had received many death threats, Unesco said.

Police had given him protection, but was not accompanying him at the time of the murder.
