Government tries to throttle independent media still holding out

first_img News The information ministry has ordered all state agencies to place advertisements only with news media that respect the monarchy. At the same time, the Press Council’s annual ranking of publications by sales is biased in favour of those that support King Gyanendra (photo). Reporters Without Borders also condemns repeated threats and attacks by royalists against journalists working for the Kantipur press group Reporters Without Borders today condemned a series of measures adopted by King Gyanendra’s government in the past few days that discriminate against the independent press, especially directives determining how state advertising will be allocated to the media.“Nepal’s independent media have in turn been the victims of threats, discrimination and repression but they have continued to resist all of the government’s arbitrary actions,” the press freedom organisation said. “King Gyanendra is trying to realise his dream of doing away with Nepal’s vibrant independent press, which has been rejecting his dictates ever since his 1 February crackdown,” Reporters Without Borders added, appealing to the international community to step up support for the independent media “in order to save one of the kingdom’s last surviving democratic gains.”On 27 September, the information and communication ministry issued a set of directives on the assignment of state advertising entitled “One Door Advertisement Policy,” in which the government asked all state entities to place advertising only with media that “respect the nation, the nationality and the monarchy.”An annual report issued by the Press Council on 22 September contained a ranking of 322 publications by sales in which several that are critical of the government, including the magazines Chhalphal and Ghatana Ra Bichar, were demoted from category A to category B although they have a sizable circulation.Reacting to the new ranking, newspaper and magazine editors staged a protest in the office of Mathabar Singh Basnet, the Press Council’s chairman on 24 September, preventing everyone from entering. They said the ranking was unfair and biased, pointing out that publications that support the king such as the weeklies Rahashya and Janabhavana had been promoted to category A. The weekly which the press council’s chairman used to edit, Punarjagaran, is also now in category A. As a result, royalist publications will now have privileged access to state funds.The Kantipur press group is meanwhile the target of a campaign of intimidation by pro-King forces for its critics to the current government. A royalist official in the eastern city of Biratnagar threatened to attack Kantipur’s offices during a meeting on 18 September. An extremist Hindu group made similar threats a few days earlier. An army officer promised to break the legs of a Kantipur correspondent on 15 September after he wrote an article about violence against civilians. Leading Kantipur columnist Krishna Jwala Devkota received many phone calls and e-mails in August ordering him to stop criticising the security forces.Several senior officials have also made threatening and ridiculous comments about journalists who have “sold out to the foreigners.” Mathabar Singh Basnet, the Press Council chairman, accused the Nepalese media on 22 September of “dancing to the rhythm of the foreigners,” while the information minister said the press should work for the country and the king and not for foreign embassies.“If the international community supports Nepalese journalists and press organisations, it is to express its solidarity with a profession that is the victim of a repressive government,” responded Reporters Without Borders, which has provided financial support to imprisoned or threatened journalists.

Dagestan journalist’s investigative work holds key to his murder

first_imgNews Receive email alerts Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is dismayed to learn of the murder in Dagestan of Akhmednabi Akhmednabiev (Ахмеднаби Ахмеднабиев), deputy editor of the weekly Novoe Delo. The 55-year-old journalist was shot several times in cold blood today by an unidentified killer near his home the Caucasus village of Semender. Investigators said they believed the most likely motive appeared to be the victim’s work as a journalist. “The Russian Caucasus has lost a first-class journalist who tackled difficult subjects such as human right violations and electoral fraud,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We with to convey our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. “It is imperative that the Dagestan justice authorities get to the bottom of this crime. In many attacks and murders, the local and federal authorities have unfortunately not always shown the necessary determination to put an end to violence against journalists. The justice authorities must do all in their power to end this spiral of violence against those involved in news and information.” May 5, 2021 Find out more Photo: journal Novoe Delo to go further News News Help by sharing this information center_img Follow the news on Russia May 21, 2021 Find out more Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing Akhmednabiev was driving away from his house in the Makhachkala about 7:30 a.m. today when he came under fire. He died instantly. An inquiry has been opened into his murder, as well as damage and destruction of property and arms trafficking under the Russian criminal code.The victim worked for two independent news organizations in the region – Dagestan-based Novoe Delo and the Moscow-based website Kavkaz-uzel (Caucasian Knot).“All the staff and contributors at Novoe Delo are deeply shocked,” the deputy editor, Ragimat Adamova, told Reporters Without Borders.“We have no doubt that Akmednabi’s murder was linked to his work. He was the paper’s political editor and wrote widely about the rights of Muslims and extra-judicial shootings. His latest story, published on 5 July, was critical of the region’s governor. He said the governor might lead them to those behind an assassination attempt against him on 11 January this year.” The journalist said he had received threats in May last year. This January he was the target of an attack from which he escaped unhurt. At the time, there was no inquiry into the attempted murder. The investigation focused only on damage and destruction of property and arms trafficking. The prosecutor’s decision not to investigate the attempted murder was subsequently ruled illegal, but the charges were never revised.Akhmednabiev’s lawyer Abdurashid Sheikhov said this serious failing explains the lack of priority given to the case. A month ago the lawyer lodged a formal complaint with the Dagestan prosecutor’s office about the matter. The prosecutor’s response is expected tomorrow, 10 July.“I am convinced that Akhmednabiev’s murder is the result of negligence on the part of our security forces,” Sheikhov said in an interview with Kavkaz-uzel. The website’s editor, Gregory Shvedov, said: “We have paid the price of an incompetent justice system.”Akhmednabiev was on a hit list of people to be killed that circulated in Makhachkala in 2009. Several journalists and human rights campaigners were described on the list as “rebel accomplices”. The noted independent journalist Khadzhimurad Kamalov was murdered in December 2011. His name was also on the hit list. An investigation into his death never reached a conclusion.

We want people to know that our staff remains committed and is working hard to meet ‘the communities and our patron’s needs.”The Archdiocese of Los Angeles said that public health protocols limiting in-person appointments have created delays for people planning services for loved ones, prompting the changes.Families will not witness the burials, but the following services will be offered:• arrangements via phone and email for immediate funeral/burial needs;• outdoor prayer service;• graveside committal immediately following the prayer service; and• memorial mass at a later date.The cemeteries will remain open for people to visit loved ones, but the administration building is closed to the public.People seeking further information about the Catholic Cemeteries and Mortuaries’ changes during COVID-19 can go to https://catholiccm.org/. 100 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it More Cool Stuff Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Vessel in Donegal double drowning ‘quickly found itself in difficulties’

first_imgHomepage BannerNews Vessel in Donegal double drowning ‘quickly found itself in difficulties’ By News Highland – February 15, 2019 Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA Pinterest Google+ Google+ Pinterest Facebook News, Sport and Obituaries on Monday May 24th Important message for people attending LUH’s INR clinic WhatsAppcenter_img Previous articleAppeal for information over Strabane assaultNext articleResidents concerned over speeding issues on busy Letterkenny Road News Highland WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Twitter Twitter A report into a fatal incident in which two men drowned off the Donegal coast in 2017 has found that the vessel’s crew had difficulty with the boat’s outboard engine and that the vessel may have capsized, throwing both occupants overboard.Raimundas Jezdauskas (33) and Rimantas Barauskas (56), both originally from Lithuania, drowned off Malin Beg Head in July 2017 after heading out to sea on an angling trip.At midday on 8 July, both men departed from Teelin Pier near Rhannakilla. They had planned to be away for the weekend and had made no arrangements to check in with anyone ashore during the trip.During the investigation into the incident it was established that the same vessel and crew had run out of fuel on the 28 May 2017, 12 days before the angling trip, and that the Coast Guard had provided a tow from near Malin Beg Head to Teelin Pier.The report goes on to say that during the angling trip “the wind direction was westerly and the vessel on a lee shore.”“Without an anchor and with an unreliable engine in such a situation a vessel would quickly find itself in difficulties,” the report notes. “It is likely, given the above, that the vessel drifted into an area of surf and breaking waves. It may have been swamped or capsized throwing the occupants overboard.”No distress call was heard but this may be due to a failure in realising the severity of the situation early on, the report notes.On the morning of 9 July, a man who lived close to Malin Beg Head found Mr Barauskas’ body at an inaccessible part of the shoreline. Mr Jezdauskas’ body was later found by the RNLI. Mr Jezdauskas was wearing a personal flotation device when his body was found, the report notes. Mr Barauskas was not.Damage to the boat and the spread of debris suggest that the vessel came “hard ashore in large breaking waves”.The autopsy report on both casualties states that ‘cause of death was drowning to water’. A coroner’s report found that both men had elevated blood alcohol levels and that Mr Barauskas was seven times over the drink-driving limit for alcohol.In conclusion, the MCIB report recommends that the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport issue a Marine Notice reminding individuals of their obligations to comply with the Code of Practice for Safe Operation of Recreational Craft.

BBC HR team defends record on minorities

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. BBC HR team defends record on minoritiesOn 16 Jan 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. The BBC’s team responsible for diversity has hit back after the director-general last week accused the corporation of being “hideously white”. In a radio interview in Scotland, Greg Dyke attacked the corporation for its inability to retain and promote staff from ethnic minorities. He claimed that in a recent meeting of 80 senior BBC managers only one was from an ethnic minority. But Linda Mitchell, the BBC’s head of diversity, is confident that the BBC will hit its targets for ethnic minority employees. Last April, the corporation set targets to increase staff from ethnic minorities to 10 per cent of the BBC’s UK workforce and to 4 per cent of senior managers by 2003.She said, “The equal opportunities policy incorporated into our retention, promotion and appraisal procedures ensures that our workforce is diverse enough.”Currently, less than 2 per cent of the BBC’s senior managers and less than 8 per cent of BBC staff are from ethnic minorities.Mitchell admitted, “There are people within the organisation whose talent and potential isn’t recognised.” She believes the solution lies in raising managers’ awareness of how to manage a diverse workforce. But Gerry Morrissey, assistant general secretary of the union Bectu, argued that simply raising managers’ awareness is not enough. He said, “The BBC needs to lay down quotas for ethnic minorities.”By Karen Higginbottom Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

Breaking: Housing minister reveals plans for new ‘city’ centre

first_imgHousing minister Esther McVey has revealed government backing for a major house building project in Kent that will add 15,000 new homes to the nation’s property market in single stroke.After nearly five years of planning and political ping-pong, Ebbsfleet Garden City is to come to life with a new central urban area called Ebbsfleet Central.Land for the new 310-acre conurbation has now been secured and, at a launch event yesterday at Ebbsfleet train station, it was revealed that the government has spent substantial sums buying up the estate needed to build the residential and commercial area.“Projects such as Ebbsfleet Central have a key role in making sure we deliver the homes this country needs while protecting the countryside,” says McVey.“The development will make the most of brownfield land and make a big contribution to delivering quality new homes for families within the garden city, at least 30% of which will be affordable.“However, it is not enough just to build new houses, we need to ensure we build proud communities with a sense of place.“That’s why developments such as this are so important, providing facilities and homes for families in a thriving new urban centre at the heart of the community.”Government backingUntil now the project had been stalled in the face of government spending cuts but, as PM Boris Johnson seeks to stimulate the economy ahead of Brexit, it has now been given his government’s backing.“We will now be talking to developers and investors to maximise the enormous potential Ebbsfleet Central will bring for all,” says Michael Cassidy, chairman of Ebbsfleet Garden City.Read more about garden cities. Ebbsfleet Central Ebbsfleet Garden City Esther McVey October 17, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
