Well-Known Ecuadorian Journalist Slain

QUITO – Ecuadorian broadcast journalist Fausto Valdiviezo was fatally shot in his car, authorities said Friday.

“We are dismayed by the murder of Fausto Valdiviezo. An embrace of solidarity for his family and the commitment that the murder will not go unpunished,” the country’s president, Rafael Correa, said on Twitter.

The 53-year-old journalist was killed Thursday night after leaving his mother’s home in the coastal city of Guayaquil, witnesses said.

Valdiviezo had been attacked Wednesday while driving, but did not report the incident to authorities, the police chief in surrounding Guayas province, Marcelo Tobar, said.

If the television reporter and anchor had reported the first attack, “we would have had some recommendations for him,” the police commander said.

The victim’s brother said he didn’t have any enemies.

“The police are on track, the country has known my brother for very many years from his journalism career,” Alfredo Valdiviezo told Ecuadorian radio. “He didn’t have problems of any kind with anyone. In reality, no enemies. So as he didn’t have enemies, I think it is very easy to detect who it might have been.” EFE
