This Wednesday, police authorities raided the headquarters of the Venepress web portal, which they then closed illegally, as reported by the President of the National Union of Press Workers, Marco Ruiz.
In addition, Ruiz reported that police officers entered the headquarters where the website works and changed the lock, without allowing workers to enter.
Similarly, the SNTP representative said that this measure affects approximately 30 journalists.
He also called on citizens to reject these actions that violate freedom of expression.
