Senator Oscar Parrilli's statements to include in the judicial reform bill the power of judges to denounce the "media powers" as a "pressure group" contravenes the protection afforded by the Constitution and the International Instruments on Human Rights to freedom of thought, expression and information.

Especially, the provisions of the American Convention on Human Rights insofar as it inhibits all forms of prior direct or indirect censorship.

This treaty only enables subsequent responsibilities that, according to the jurisprudence of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, must dispense with criminal coercion and it does not proceed when issues of public interest or relevance are under debate.

Digital communications framed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution go beyond the concept of "media powers" with decisive influence on massive and captive audiences; Today we can all be producers of diverse content, and precisely in this plurality, freedom of expression of the 21st century is promoted.

The author of this column is a lawyer, a professor of constitutional law and is a member of the committee formed by the Government to suggest changes in Justice.
