In a bid to limit the grounds and liability in defamation cases, and to broaden access to information, local journalists and press freedom advocates created an independent organization called Instituto de Prensa y Libertad de Expresión (IPLEX) on June 8. The group was established to provide training for journalists, encourage independent and diverse media, and defend local journalists in their work. Eduardo Ulibarri, former editor of the leading daily La Nación, was named the group's president.
