The reason for the denial of recognition to American Roman Oliver Grecian was in stark contrast to the expulsion of Mexican Daniel Lizarro a week ago.
A few days after the Naib Buchale government expelled award-winning Mexican journalist Daniel Lisaraga, who appointed El Forro as one of its editors, the relocation this Monday denied another journalist the work permit of this medium-sized digital.
“On Friday, July 9, the El Salvador’s Directorate of Immigration, Roman Oliver Gracier, denied a job permit to a member of El Foro, and it has been in operation since June 22.
According to media reports, the aliens’ argument is that Gracie is not in the country, meanwhile ‘he has no intention of staying in the country’.
Interestingly, this argument contradicts and completely contradicts the argument used to expel Lizarra from El Salvador. In the same week, the government expelled one journalist from El Salvador for being inside and another for being outside.
“In one week, two foreign journalists received similar denials based on questionable arguments,” El Foro said on their social networks. This digital newspaper has been the target of numerous government attacks for its many coverages, which, like other independent media outlets, contradict the successful description of the Buke government.
“Both Gracier and Lizarra will continue to work for El Foro, and the media is looking for more relevant alternatives for its journalists so that they can carry out their informed work despite government restrictions”, the position of digital media on its social networks.
For his part, Daniel Lisaraga, who was fired a week ago, questioned the government’s logic in expelling two journalists with completely different justifications.
In addition, he referred the matter to “Roman Olivier’s second consecutive and treacherous blow against El Foro, arguing that he did not want to stay in the country because he was abroad. They denied it to me, but because I was in El Salvador. Then?”
Previously, El Foro had been the target of attacks by the ruling party, including excessive censorship of the finance ministry beyond the tax issue. At a press conference, President Buckley said they were being investigated for money laundering, which was never reported to the media.
