Senior program coordinator at CPJ for Americas region, Carlos Lauria said “This threat is the latest in a long line of efforts to intimidate Lydia Cacho, one of Mexico’s most prominent reporters,” and “The delivery of the threat over her own emergency communication system should be particularly alarming to Mexican authorities, who must ensure her safety.”
