(RSF/IFEX) - On 25 May 2004, Judge Alfredo Vladimir Catacora Acevedo lifted restrictions on British journalist Sally Bowen that prohibited her from leaving the country, put her under legal supervision and forced her to seek the judge's permission each time she wanted to travel outside the capital, Lima. The judge relaxed a decision against her that included these restrictions, replacing it with a "simple summons".
