Regional Paper

This article reviews the last twenty years of legislative production and the last five of legislative initiatives related to the exercise of freedom of expression, including the following topics: crimes of expression (injury, slander and defamation), dissemination of false information or fake news, contempt, prohibitions on the dissemination of certain types of public or private information, violence in expression (especially on the internet), the crime of terrorism and the crime of apology, and the responsibility of intermediaries or Internet platforms for the content disseminated by its users.
The author critically analyzes the main laws and bills presented during said period and, although he discards the possibility of drawing a clear and reflected trend from Peruvian legislators, questions the ease with which the norms that criminalize or aggravate the laws have proliferated. penalties applicable to different forms of expression. Especially those that grant less favorable treatment to expression on the internet.
