“The UNESCO representative in the country expressed to me the interest of this entity in working hand in hand with this commission to improve the Republic freedom of expression laws”, as well as the rapporteur for the freedom of the press of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, Rodríguez said.

The commission unanimously approved the proposal presented by UNESCO. In addition, the regional entity offered the advisory commission three types of legal and specialized aid. Lawyers and journalists created different subcommittees to create a bill that regulates freedom of expression in the written, printed and digital media.
