SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

“One UI student ‘country-less’ but free, for now,” a story about University of Iowa student and Kuwaiti native Coco Moreno, was published in The Daily Iowan in print and online on May 5. The article shortly thereafter circulated internationally.  Following international circulation of the article, the DI has received requests to remove the electronic version from our website. While we acknowledge that this story has engendered some threat to Coco and her family, it is not in our policy to remove articles from our website because they have already been circulated beyond our control. Coco worked with the DI and the reporter throughout the process, agreeing to the use of names and details as they appeared in the article. Coco acknowledged with the reporter that there might be consequences following the publication of this story. Though the organization does not tolerate prior review, the DI made an exception because of the sensitive nature of this story, allowing Coco to read the story in its entirety before publication. She told the DI at the time of publication that she was happy with the result of the article and found no problems with it.
