Narco News Reporters Harassed

Mexican Journalists Denounce Possible Early Effects of Country’s Proposed “Gestapo Law”

By Hermann Bellinghausen, Eugene Bermejillo, Gloria Muñoz Ramírez, Ramón Vera Herrera and Yuriria Pantoja Millán
La Jornada

February 20, 2008

Juan Trujillo Limones (a La Jornada and Ojarasca contributor) and Raúl Romero Gallardo, reporters for the Narco News electronic bulletin, have been subjected to spying and unlawful entry into their Mexico City apartment. On both occasions the “visitors” have made sure Trujillo and Romero knew they were there. On the night of January 25-26 they inspected their computers and left them on, and on February 1 they left the television on. Neighbors have confirmed the presence of strange people outside the building. We believe these acts are linked to the reporters’ activity. They’ve covered various independent indigenous movement activities, and now they join the ranks of journalists who’ve been harassed recently. Early effects of the “Gestapo Law“? We demand security and respect for our colleagues’ work.
