Veteran Haitian journalist convicted
Tuesday, 23 December 2008
The Association of Caribbean Media Workers, ACM, has written to Haiti's president Rene Preval expressing concern over the conviction of veteran journalist Joseph Guyler Delva, his personal safety and wider press freedom.
Mr. Delva, an executive member of the ACM, was convicted on a charge of criminal defamation on December 10, over statements he wrote about a high ranking Haitian official in an article written in October.
The ACM, which has also consulted with its international press freedom partners on the issue, has also officially brought the matter to the attention of the CARICOM Secretary-General.
The regional media body said the charge emerged out of journalistic investigations into the assassination of prominent journalist, Jean Dominique.
