BackgroundEdit

In 2002, Perú.21 was founded by the economist Augusto Álvarez Rodrich, and it has quickly become one of the leading newspapers of Peru, known for its provocative caricatures and cartoon publications.[1][2]

ControversyEdit

In 2012, the official website of Perú.21 was briefly blocked by the Government of Peru after it had published an article criticizing the government's budget management.[3]

A few months later, a former journalist who had earlier worked for Perú.21 was arrested and imprisoned for hacking into the email accounts of government officials.[4]
