The Fray Bartolomé de Las Casas Center for Human Rights (CDFHBC) has denounced that on 2 May there was distributed a press-release employing its logo and official letterhead with the title “Bulletin No. 11 – violent homicide of Osama Bin Laden” found on the blog http://fraybadelascasas.blogspot.com (currently inoperational), among other electronic sites.
As the NGO has claimed, “This center of human rights has not released any press-release regarding the murder of Osama Bin Laden and does not administrate the blog in question. This is one of the mediatic strategies used to disinform public opinion and discredit the human-rights work this center has engaged in for the past 22 years.”
