Peru gov’t hails b’caster

World Brief

Peru’s new government has honored Baruch Ivcher, owner of TV net Frecuencia Latina Channel 2, for his fight to expose corruption in the previous administration.

Frecuencia Latina was the first network openly to accuse former President Alberto Fujimori and his national security adviser, Vladimiro Montesinos. Fujimori was ousted in November after 10 years in power.

Ivcher was the only individual singled out in a Sept. 16 ceremony, attended by President Alejandro Toledo, honoring media critical of Fujimori.

In 1997, an angry Fujimori stripped the Israeli-born media exec of his Peruvian citizenship and confiscated his station and investments. These were restored to Ivcher after Fujimori’s impeachment.
