“ChuzaDAS : Media targeted by intelligence services”

first_img ColombiaAmericas May 27, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “ChuzaDAS : Media targeted by intelligence services” RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Far from limiting itself to phone-tapping (chuzadas), the scandal extended to tailing individuals, acts of sabotage and intimidation often hatched by those who were supposed to be protecting journalists under threat, combined with “black propaganda” vilifying opposition figures as “enemies of the state”.The case has thrown into question the future of the country’s top intelligence service, the Administrative Department of Security (DAS), identified as being behind these practices. It also reaches into the presidency, whose incumbent did not hesitate to make public accusations against journalists, even though it made their position even more precarious. The scandal continues to echo today in a tense election campaign played out against the legacy of the Uribe years. Journalists, media editors, press freedom defenders, and election observers have all pieced together the truth of what happened as witnesses or victims. The organisations involved also managed to get access to the current director general of the DAS, Felipe Muñoz.Another report will be published tomorrow, 28 May, by the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), whose president for Latin America and Caribbean accompanied Reporters Without Borders on its visit to Colombia. It is based on information obtained during a visit to the community media on the Atlantic coast and the Andean region of Cauca. The accounts of representatives of these media, legally recognised but getting scant respect from the authorities, underline the difficulties journalists face working in the regions and the press freedom contrasts in Colombia. Indigenous journalists in Cauca, caught in the crossfire between paramilitaries, the army and FARC guerrillas, reminded us that the conflict that has destabilised the country for half a century is not yet over.

King rolls back 15 years of press freedom gains in four days

first_img to go further Help by sharing this information Nepalese journalists threatened, attacked and censored over Covid-19 coverage News Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the drastic manner in which King Gyanendra and his army have wiped out the press freedom gains of the past 15 years, along with other democratic gains, since the coup d’etat on 1 February.The state news media and ten privately-owned media have been put under direct military control. Dozens of news media have been closed in the provinces. The authorities have banned any negative reporting about the regime for six months. Dozens of journalists are pursued by the security forces, including the president of the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ). And foreign news media correspondents are being prevented from working freely.”By criminalizing the right to inform and by bringing a vibrant and courageous independent press to its knees, the king is responsible for the most important setback to freedom in 15 years,” Reporters Without Borders said, voicing support for the FNJ’s call for demonstrations to defend Nepalese democracy.The press freedom organization said it urged the international community to freeze aid to the Nepalese government immediately. The aid should be conditioned on respect for basic freedoms including freedom of expression, it said.Reporters Without Borders has identified King Gyanendra as a predator of press freedom for the past three years. He has defended the abuses which eight UN experts described as extremely serious in 2004, above all because of the increase in torture and detention in undisclosed locations. Some 400 journalists were arrested or imprisoned by the security forces in 2004.Nepal has been cut off from the world since 1 February. The few reports getting out indicate a very severe clampdown on both state and privately-owned media. Military are in charge of censoring state TV programmes. Army officers have moved into the offices of the main privately-owned newspapers, including the daily Kantipur. The premises of the weekly Janaastha, known for criticising the monarchy, were overrun on 1 February by around 20 soldiers who sequestered the journalists there for the first 24 hours. An officer has stayed to censor reports.Kantipur’s famous editorialist, Khagendra Sangraula, who is known for his criticism of the palace, has been detained in an army barracks in Kathmandu.The work of the few foreign press correspondents has been blocked. The news agency Reuters said hotel owners have refused to let foreign TV crews install their satellite dishes on hotel roofs. The military police briefly detained about 10 Nepalese and foreign journalists today, confiscating equipment. They included the correspondents of the Associated Press, who were covering the arrests of some 50 Congress Party activists.The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) said FNJ president Tara Nath Dahal had been in hiding since the security forces tried to arrest him at his home. The FNJ had condemned what it called a “coup d’etat against democracy” and called on journalists to fight with courage and determination to guarantee the right of the Nepalese people to news and information.The IFJ said the military has imposed censorship throughout the country. All the media were closed down in the central town of Pokhara, where the army fired on a crowd of students. “You can no longer publish news, that is the responsibility of the newspapers in Kathmandu,” an officer reportedly told a Pokhara journalist.All of Nepal’s community radio stations have been closed, while the oldest community station, Radio Sagarmatha, is now controlled by the army. News programmes have been banned. The military ordered two FM radio stations and four local newspapers to close in the western district of Rupandehi.

Somalia: Another journalist gunned down in Mogadishu

first_img February 24, 2021 Find out more RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists SomaliaAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence RSF_en Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is outraged by radio journalist Abdiaziz Mohamed Ali’s execution-style murder yesterday evening in Mogadishu and calls for a rapid investigation to identify those responsible and bring them to justice. Aged 35, Abdiaziz Mohamed Ali produced and presented a morning news programme on Radio Shabelle, a Mogadishu-based independent radio station. Men on a motorcycle gunned him down in the capital’s Yaqshid district as he was on his way to visit his parents. It was Radio Shabelle that broke the news of his murder. “He was a professional journalist who was dedicated to his work,” Radio Shabelle owner Abdimalik Yusuf Mohamud told Reuters. He added that he did not know why Ali was targeted. The police said the murder was carried out by two gunmen who got away. No one has claimed his death. “We urge the authorities to quickly launch an investigation and give it the necessary resources so that those responsible can be identified and brought to trial,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “Murders of journalists are rarely investigated and this just perpetuates impunity for this type of crime. It is vital that, despite limited resources, the Somali government should adopt credible measures to investigate these murders in order to send a clear message that it will not tolerate this type of violence.” Part of the Shabelle Media Network, Radio Shabelle is a leading Somali broadcaster that is exposed to violence. Many of its employees have been killed in similar attacks in recent years. According to RSF’s tally, ten of the group’s journalists, including three of its directors, have been murdered since 2006. They include Bashir Nur Gedi, who was slain by a group of young gunmen on 19 October 2007, Mukhtar Mohamed Hirabe, who was shot four times in the chest in a Mogadishu market on 7 June 2009, and Hassan Osman Abdi, who was murdered outside his home on 28 January 2012. Ali is the second journalist to be murdered in Somalia this year. As RSF reported at the time, Radio Mogadishu producer and presenter Sagal Salad Osman was gunned down in the capital in June. A report on freedom of expression in Somalia published by the United Nations last month stressed the need to bring those responsible for human rights violations to account. Somalia is ranked 167th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Clamping suspended at city’s Potato Market

first_imgNewsLocal NewsClamping suspended at city’s Potato MarketBy admin – September 30, 2010 449 Email Last month, the Limerick Post highlighted complaints from several motorists after they had been clamped while attending to their duties at the Courthouse and City Hall, where because of court sittings and meetings with city hall authorities, they were unable to return to their vehicles to insert additional money into ticket machines.Further good news for motorists is that council is to examine the possibility of introducing new by-laws against the clamping of vehicles. Cllr Kieran O’Hanlon repeated a call he made some months ago that clamping in Clare Street be prohibited.He revealed that on St Patrick’s Day a young mother with two children had “been victimised” by having her car clamped on Clare Street.“She parked in front of a business premises, which uses four or five feet of space for its own staff – half of the space is on the pathway and there’s a sign up that clamping is in operation. She was just a few minutes over the time and didn’t have €120 on her to pay the clampers., She had to wait, with her young children for almost two hours until a friend was able to get to her with the money. This is extortion – a motorist gets a fine of €40 for a parking offence – why is it €120 for a clamping offence?“We as a city council do not operate clamping  – it is antisocial and I was glad to see that this week the Market Trustees agreed that clamping in the Potato Market will be discontinued for a month. “I’m curious to find out the legal position on this and  hopefully, the city manager will agree that the by-laws in relation to the issue need changing as clamping is of no good to the commercial value of the city”.Equally opposed to clamping, Cllr John Gilligan described it is “the worst form of antisocial behaviour.“People are frequently left distraught on finding their car clamped – I know of a senior citizen who was picking up his grandchild from school and had no other way of getting home – it’s a draconian activity and should be stopped immediately. I don’t recall any discussion taking place on the clamping being allowed”.Cllr Kevin Kiely said that the Market Trustees had not been set up to compete with the city’s car parks.“I’ve made a complaint to the Planning Department and have asked them to investigate as I believe it is totally illegal”.

Late Cretaceous winter sea ice in Antarctica?

first_imgThe Late Cretaceous is considered to have been a time of greenhouse climates, although evidence from Maastrichtian sediments for rapid and significant sea-level changes suggests that ice sheets were growing and decaying on Antarctica at that time. There is no direct geological evidence for glaciation, but we present palynomorph records from Seymour Island, Antarctica, that may suggest Maastrichtian sea ice. The dinoflagellate cyst Impletosphaeridium clavus is dominant. We propose that its profusion may signify the accumulation of resting cysts from dinoflagellate blooms related to winter sea ice decay. Prior to the Cretaceous-Paleogene transition, I. clavus decreased dramatically in abundance; we link this with climate warming. Terrestrial conditions inferred from pollen and spore data are consistent with our climate interpretations based on I. clavus together with δ18O values from macrofossils. These data and our interpretation support the presence of ephemeral ice sheets on Antarctica during the latest Cretaceous, highlighting the extreme sensitivity of this region to global climate change.last_img read more

Researchers at Oxford University launch international study to assess the effects of COVID-19 in pregnancy

first_imgThe study began field preparations on 20 April 2020 andrecruitment started immediately. Already, 62 medical institutions in 29countries have agreed to participate. Professor Villar stated: “This large study benefits from theUniversity having hosted, over the last 12 years, a network of researchersacross the world who have participated in the INTERGROWTH-21stProject. As a result, we have in place trained research staff and standardiseddata collection forms. All the work is done via an online data collectionsystem that provides information almost in real-time.” In the INTERCOVID study researchers will be recruiting womenwho are and are not exposed to Covid-19 at any stage of pregnancy, followingmothers and new-borns until hospital discharge post-delivery. Professor Aris Papageorghiou (NDWRH), who is jointly leadingthe research, said that the “truly remarkable” response from internationalcolleagues “means the study should have significant power to provide invaluableanswers, in a short time period, regarding the risks to pregnant women who areexposed to SARS-CoV-2.” Professor Stephen Kennedy (NDWRH), who is jointly leadingthe research, said that a failure to obtain this information “runs the risk ofpregnant women being denied priority access to a new vaccine or therapy, as hasoccurred so many times in the past.” It looks to collect invaluable baseline data as recommendedby the Pregnancy Research Ethics for Vaccines, Epidemics and New Technologies(PREVENT) Report, in order to inform risk-benefit analyses for future vaccinetrials in pregnant women by providing “potential risk relationships betweenvaccination and adverse events.” It is believed that pregnant women with Covid-19 are at asimilar risk to the general population, but there is currently limited dataavailable to provide accurate evidence for this claim. The information isneeded quickly in order to optimise the care available for women and their new-borns,reduce maternal anxiety, inform decision making about resource allocation, andguide the process toward social adaptation. center_img INTERCOVID is a large, multi-national, prospective cohortstudy, coordinated by the INTERGROWTH-21st Team at the University ofOxford. Professor Jose Villar of the University’s Nuffield Department ofWomen’s & Reproductive Health (NDWRH), is leading the research. The study defines “exposed” cases as pregnant women with anyof the following: “laboratory-confirmed Covid-19; radiological pulmonaryfindings suggestive of Covid-19; maternal symptoms compatible with Covid-19;absence of symptoms, whilst in close interaction with a person(s) withconfirmed Covid-19.” Each “exposed” case is compared with two “non-exposed”pregnant women, considered as a representative of the pregnancy population ateach study site. On the 24th of April, researchers at the University of Oxford launched a global study to evaluate the effects of Covid-19 in pregnancy. The INTERCOVID study will be used to advise families, health care providers and policymakers with high-quality evidence regarding the effects of Covid-19 in maternal, fetal and neonatal outcomes.

Planned petrochemical project in Ohio may be on the ropes with departure of South Korean partner

first_imgPlanned petrochemical project in Ohio may be on the ropes with departure of South Korean partner FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Associated Press:The prospects for construction of a multibillion-dollar petrochemical plant in Ohio appear to have dimmed after a U.S. subsidiary of a South Korean company announced it was withdrawing as a partner in the project.A joint statement issued early Tuesday by Daelim Chemical USA and the U.S. subsidiary of Thailand’s PTT Global Chemical cited the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and oil price volatility for yet another delay in deciding whether the plant along the Ohio River would be built.PTT Global Chemical America President and CEO Toasaporn Boonyapipat in a separate statement said the project remains a “top priority” as the company searches for a new equity partner and works toward “a final investment decision.”The plant would convert — crack — molecules of ethane, a byproduct of natural gas drilling, into raw materials used to manufacture plastic and other products.PTTGCA announced its partnership with Daelim in March 2018. A PTTGCA spokesman said Tuesday that the company has thus far spent around $200 million on engineering and planning.JobsOhio, the state’s private nonprofit economic development arm, has contributed just over $70 million, including a $20 million grant in February to be paid directly to Bechtel Corp. to complete site engineering and site preparation at the site in Belmont County.[Mark Gillispie]More: South Korean firm quits petrochemical plant effort in Ohiolast_img read more
