InSight Crime Receives Prestigious Ortega and Gasset Award in Barcelona

InSight Crime reporters traveled to Barcelona, Spain, to collect the prestigious Ortega and Gasset prize for our investigation, The Moskitia: The Honduran Jungle Drowning in Cocaine.

Written by Juan Martínez d’Aubuisson and Bryan Avelar, the Moskitia investigation chronicles how drug trafficking destroys the rainforest and threatens indigenous communities on Honduras’ remote northern coast. At the ceremony, Martínez d’Aubuisson and Avelar were presented with the award for “best story or journalistic investigation.”

In his acceptance speech, Martínez d’Aubuisson spoke of his commitment to investigating how transnational crime impacts the lives of powerless populations.

“This is precisely the kind of journalism I have bet my life on,” he said. “And it is the only one I want to continue doing.”

He also thanked Moskitia’s indigenous communities for educating him and guiding him through the remote jungle.
