Right of reply: Rejection of the reform proposal.


Dear customers and friends:

 

On November 10th of this year, the ministers of the Supreme Justice Court of the Nation rejected a proposal for a reform of the article 3 of the law that regulates the right of reply, which was intended to eliminate the requirements that the information to replicate is “inaccurate or false”.

 

The issue will be given to another minister to rewrite the draft judgment and be resolved.

 

It is important to be aware that the reform would allow the right of reply to proceed against right and true information, so that each opinion or publication would follow a reply or rectification of whoever was injured. This would have a major impact on journalistic and political issues, as each column, article or opinion would have to be given the opportunity to replicate its content, thereby limiting freedom of expression of its authors.
