Reporters Without Borders calls ban on media "state censorship"

International organization Reporters Without Borders Tuesday condemned a court ruling banning Venezuelan media from disclosing any details of the judicial investigation into the November 2004 murder of public prosecutor Danilo Anderson or mentioning a key witness in the case.

"The Danilo Anderson case is fraught with political and media repercussions as two opposition journalists are accused of being among the instigators of the judge's murder and certain independent news media have questioned the credibility of Giovanny Vásquez, the prosecution witness against these two journalists," Reporters Without Borders said.

"We fear this 'obstruction of justice' procedure is a judicial device for the government to yet again settle some scores with the privately-owned media and at the same time subject them to state censorship," the press freedom organization added.
