Journalists from Nicaragua, Mexico and Panama are now among the 54 professionals from Latin America in the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).
The ICIJ, the collaborative network behind investigations like the Panama Papers and Paradise Papers, welcomed 18 new members on April 29. There are now 249 journalists in more than 90 countries in the group.
In Latin America, 19 countries are represented.
Octavio Enríquez, a journalist and editor of La Prensa in Nicaragua, was among those chosen for the new cohort. The winner of many prizes, including the Ortega y Gasset Journalism award, he “has published numerous investigations about corruption and abuse by longtime Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and his inner circle,” according to ICIJ.
