Dear Mr President

I, as a member of Writers in Prison Committe of Norwegian PEN, am protesting the ongoing harassment of Lydia Cacho and Sanjuana Martínez Montemayor stemming from their writings on sexual exploitation; reminding the authorities of their obligation to protect them and other writers peacefully exercising their right to freedom of expression and to investigate any attacks against them.

Confident that You, Your Excellency, will take action accordingly, I remain.

Yours sincerely

Unni Malmø, member of Writers in Prison Committee, Norwegian Pen
