US decision on news group's an insult to Panama
The decision of OFAC, the US Office of Foreign Assets Control to fail to renew the operating license of Panama’s GESE editorial group. publishers of El Siglo and La Estrella de Panamá is “an insult to the country,” says the group’s president Eduardo Quirós.
The measure, said Quirós, will have a direct detrimental effect on the 243 editorial staff, but also violates the freedom of expression of an entire country.
The OFAC license, which allows US citizens and companies to trade with GESE, expired last night.
