At the request of defense attorneys, the 14th Control Court resolved to adjourn for April 24th a preliminary audience as part of a trial filed against journalist Napoléon Bravo for alleged denigration, attorney Alberto Arteaga Sánchez told Unión Radio.

The attorney forwarded a document stating the exception to the charges made by the Attorney General Office, including transcription of the TV show based on which Bravo is being prosecuted.

Arteaga maintained that the experts of the Scientific, Penal and Criminology Investigation Agency (Cicpc) have not endorsed the transcription, and this is a key step in the proceeding.

In the lawyer's view, denigration -the charge made against Bravo- runs counter to freedom of expression, as established in the Inter American Convention of Human Rights.

For his part, the journalist commented that a word was changed from his remarks made at the courthouse. Therefore, he deems it appropriate to review the transcription "in depth to find if it was exactly what was said."

In his opinion, a decision on his case has been made beforehand, and he fears that he will not be absolved. "This is a political trial, such as the trial against journalists Ibéyise (Pacheco), Marianella Salazar, and Gustavo Azócar. They will find me guilty."
