Santo Domingo.- The organization Reporters Without Borders (RSF) on Tuesday called on Dominican authorities to provide "immediate protection" for newspaper ‘El Nacional’ journalist Pedro Fernández, who’s been "the target of two assassination attempts.”

"Pedro Fernández should immediately enjoy the protection of a personal guard. We urge the Dominican authorities to launch an investigation as soon as possible to find the perpetrators and masterminds," the head of RSF for the Americas, Camille Soulier said in a statement.

On June 30 Fernández was fired upon in the city of San Francisco de Macorís (northeast), just a week after another violent action against him.

The RSF added that the latest attack took place when the reporter was driving a car in the neighborhood Los Chiripos, known for the presence of drug pushers.

I know Pedro and he is a very decent person and .like all journalists must be given protection . The simple way out for Dominicans when they are being caught out is to either resort to abusive language or to try to intimidate

Global press freedom has fallen to its lowest level in over a decade, according to the latest edition of Freedom House's press freedom survey. The decline was driven in part by major regression in several Middle Eastern states, including Egypt, Libya, and Jordan; marked setbacks in Turkey, Ukraine, and a number of countries in East Africa; and deterioration in the relatively open media environment of the United States.
