"Most of the journalism in Latin America is now related to three fundamental issues: corruption, narco-traffic and the revision of history in terms of the military repression of the last two or three decades. All of the secret work of the armies, the repression, is now appearing for the first time in the public view. It is something new in Latin America. Clandestine cemeteries are going to be discovered in Guatemala, Chile, Peru, and the journalists’ attention is going to be fixed on those facts. These journalists are the most important tools for this cleaning of the history of Latin America."Sergio Ramírez (jury member 2005 & 2006)
