The decision has been condemned.

Temas:

Venezuelan journalist Ahiana Figueroa has been fired for participating in the investigation which was led by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists into the law firm Mossack Fonseca of Panama.

The publication linked government officials from the administration of former President Hugo Chavez and some of his close friends to shell companies in Panama.

"It [generated] some discomfort where I work and they sought a way to get me out, because they are upset," Figueroa said.

The group that employed the journalist was sold two years ago and it is unknown who their owner currently are, though, Figueroa said, "I have an idea, because their line has changed to become markedly pro-government."

The Union of Press Workers and the Association of Journalists denounced the arbitrary nature of the firing of Figueroa and called on international organizations to pose his eyes on these abuses to freedom of expression.
