Alberto Rivera Fernández, Radio Frecuencia Oriental
21 April 2004

Alberto Rivera Fernández, a journalist in Pucallpa in the eastern Ucayali region who presented a programme called "Transparencia" on Radio Frecuencia Oriental, was murdered in broad daylight on 21 April 2004 by two gunmen who entered his family’s store pretending to be customers and shot him twice in the chest.

He was known for criticizing both local and regional officials. Two days prior to his death, the programme "La ventana indiscreta" on a local TV station had carried a critical report about the mayor of Coronel Portillo for which Rivera was the source.
