A court has frozen the bank account of the station manager who is planning
to return "The Voice" of Bagua (La Voz) to the air on Jan. 4, the CNR
radio network reports.

Federal regulators cancelled the station's license last June for being out
of administrative compliance, and officials accused The Voice of inciting
deadly riots in Bagua, Amazonas in northern Peru. But station
representatives argued in November before the Inter American Court of
Human Rights that The Voice's closing was politically motivated, and not
because of administrative reasons.

The Communications ministry recently blocked the savings account of
station manager Carlos Flores Borja, who had received a loan from the
National Journalists Association of Peru to buy two hours of daily space
on another radio station. Flores says the blockage of the account will not
keep the station from strating its two-hour daily news program next week
on Radio Ariana Mix 95.5 FM, CNR says.
