TalCual: Venezuelan Newspaper Director Teodoro Petkoff Awarded in Argentina
The director of Venezuela-based newspaper TalCual sent a message to the award ceremony, which was not able to attend because of a prohibition on leaving the country since February 2014 as a result of a lawsuit by Diosdado Cabello, a top official of Venezuela’s socialist regime

The city of Buenos Aires hosted the award ceremony of the Perfil Awards by the Argentina-based Perfil newspaper last Tuesday night.

Teodoro Petkoff, director and editor-in-chief of TalCual, was awarded with the Perfil International Freedom of Expression Award.

This award recognizes "the effort of those who are able to raise their voice on behalf of those who have no voice and to celebrate the difference of views, the creative, open and pluralist debate (...) these were the reasons why Perfil decided to award Petkoff, one of the strongest critics against the authoritarian methods developed in Venezuela by Hugo Chávez and Nicolás Maduro, with the Perfil International Freedom of Expression Award," said the host of the ceremony when announcing the award.

Petkoff sent a message to the award ceremony, which was not able to attend because of a prohibition on leaving the country since February 2014 as a result of a lawsuit by Diosdado Cabello, a top official of Venezuela’s socialist regime. "I would like to thank Perfil of Argentina for this freedom of expression award, not for me but for TalCual (...) TalCual was born at a difficult moment for the history of Venezuela; we have tried to be a bastion of freedom of expression and the defense of the rights of the Venezuelan people (...) For 18 years, TalCual has fought to preserve the values of truth and justice (...) I’m sure that this honorary award will help turn your eyes towards Venezuela in this difficult moment in its history," said Petkoff.

Perfil is a bi-weekly newspaper published in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was founded by Jorge Fontevecchia on May 9, 1998, and its slogan is "pure journalism."
