Supreme Court Chairman Ricardo Lorenzetti defended the constitutionality of the Audiovisual Communications Law and held that “there is no evidence that if affects freedom of expression.”
He also ratified that “the State has the right to set limits to licences and this does not affect the freedom of the press. In this particular case and as of today, there is no evidence that it has affected the freedom of expression.”
Lorenzetti again denied that the Supreme Court has made a deal with the Government on the Media Law.
“Everybody should know that the Court has not made a deal with anyone. We are many Judges, with different points of view and any deal would be well known. How could we make a deal on such a complex issue as this one?” he queried. “We have worked a lot on this matter.”
“We should convey serenity to the people, this is the same Supreme Court that in the last ten years has expressed its position on the property and freedom of expression rights, as well as on other terms that we intend to keep on defending,” Lorenzetti stated.
