Threatened radio station news editor forced to flee the country

first_imgNews RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Reporters Without Borders expressed concern today at the plight of Darío Arizmendi Posada, news editor at Radio Caracol, who was forced to flee the country on 8 March after death threats from an unknown group. The worldwide press freedom organisation noted that seven journalists were last year driven out of their home region or obliged to go abroad after threats from paramilitray groups or armed rebels. “This latest case shows how much pressure Colombian journalists are under when they do their job and what they have to do to survive,” it said. “We salute the courage of Arizmendi Posada who has decided to fight back and continue presenting his radio programme on Radio Caracol from outside the country.” The journalist has aired his programme “Seis AM hoy por hoy” for 15 years. His departure from Colombia with his wife was only revealed by the radio station on 16 March and his place of exile is being kept secret.President Alvaro Uribe has announced a $500,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of those who made the threats.

Another of its presenters, Herbin Hoyos Medina, was forced to leave the country on 6 July last year (press release of 10 July) after an ultimatum from a mysterious “Action Front for Justice and Democracy” linked to far-right paramilitary groups.

Finding Kamra’s tweet to be highly objectionable, the AG granted his consent under Section 15(1)(b) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 to initiate criminal contempt. He said, “I find that today people believe that they can boldly and brazenly condemn the Supreme Court of India and its judges by exercising what they believe is their freedom of speech. But under the Constitution, the freedom of speech is subject to the law of contempt and I believe that it is time that people understand that attacking the Supreme Court of India unjustifiedly and brazenly will attract punishment under the Contempt of Courts Act, 1972.” Delete [Breaking] Attorney General gives consent to initiate criminal contempt against Kunal Kamra @kunalkamra88 for his tweets on Supreme Court in the wake of bail granted to #ArnabGoswami.The AG gave consent on the letter petition filed by law student @SkandBajpai— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) November 12, 2020 The AG’s letter referred to Kamra’s comments such as ‘honour has left the building(Supreme Court) long back’ and ‘Supreme Court of the country is the most Supreme joke of the country’.The AG also noted that apart from these comments, Kamra posted a picture of the Supreme Court dressed in saffron colour with the flag of the ruling party, the BJP.Taking strong exception to this tweet, the AG commented:”This is a gross insinuation against the entirety of the Supreme Court of India that the Supreme Court of India is not an independent and impartial institution and so too its judges, but on the other hand is a court of the ruling party, the BJP, existing only for the BJP’s benefit”.Kamra had made a series of tweets regarding the Supreme Court and initiation of contempt against him has been sought for 4 of his tweets posted in the wake of the Supreme Court granting interim bail to Arnab Goswami. Complaining against the same, law student Skand Bajpai had sent a letter to the AG stating that the tweets and publications scandalize the Supreme Court and prejudices the minds of millions of people. “During the course of the proceedings and also subsequent to the verdict, Mr. Kunal Kamra a stand-up comedian by profession through his Twitter handle having 1.7 million followers @kunalkamra88 published a series of tweets to scandalizes SC”, the letter reads. “If this kind of unruly and salacious statements are allowed to go unchecked, influencers having millions of social media followers would start making reckless allegations and diabolical statements against the judges,” the letter said.The AG had earlier declined consent to initiate criminal contempt against actor-activist Swara Bhasker for her comments criticizing the Supreme Court observing that the comments did not amount to an attack on the Supreme Court.Recently, the AG refused to give consent for contempt against the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, for his public allegations against Justice Ramana. Though the AG commented that the public allegations were prima facie ‘contumacious’, he declined consent observing that it was not proper for him to intervene when the CJI is seized of Jagan’s letter.Next Storylast_img read more

Fighting Clan Casts Off for Security Mission East of Suez

first_img View post tag: Mission HMS Sutherland today sailed from Devonport to begin six months keeping pirates and other criminals in check in the Indian Ocean. The Type 23 frigate – known as the Fighting Clan – sailed from her Devonshire home this afternoon bound for warmer, and more troubled waters.The Fighting Clan takes over from her sister Westminster on a wide-ranging security mission east of Suez for the next six months.Last year it was escorting the Cougar task group to the Mediterranean and Middle East – and smiting the forces of Colonel Gaddafi courtesy of a stint of gunnery bombarding the Libyan government’s war machine.In 2012 her duties are keeping the waters of the Indian Ocean free of pirates, terrorists, and smugglers (of people, drugs and arms) as part of a wide-ranging maritime security mission, taking over from her sister Westminster.In the period between the end of her 2011 deployment and this year’s tour of duty, Sutherland has received the latest version of the Seawolf missile system – effectively doubling the range of her defences should she come under air attack – and her ship’s company have undergone comprehensive training ready for their new mission.“Sutherland’s one of the most advanced and capable warships in the Royal Navy – and I’m privileged to lead the ship on counter-piracy and maritime security operations,” said the Fighting Clan’s Commanding Officer Cdr Al Wilson.Just a day before departing, there was a chance to show loved ones what the new-look Fighting Clan can do, when the frigate took them to sea for a ‘families day’ off Plymouth.There they witnessed low-flying air attacks and boarding operations as well as have a look around the rather cramped conditions the 200 sailors and Royal Marines will be living in for the next six months. And it gave Cdr Wilson the opportunity to thank families in advance for all the support they will give while the frigate is away.“It makes a sad day a little easier to bear,” explained Kersty Norris, the wife of WO1 Mike Norris, the most senior rating on board. She joined the families day with children Alfie and Ross.“It is nice to meet everyone on the ship – and to see where my husband’s home will be for the next six months. It was a special day for Alfie and Rose – they didn’t want their daddy to go away. It was also nice for them to meet other children who are going to be in the same situation as them.”They – and the rest of Sutherland’s families – will see the Type 23 frigate in home waters again just before Christmas.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, July 6, 2012; Image: Royal Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Fighting Clan Casts Off for Security Mission East of Suez View post tag: Security View post tag: Navy View post tag: Suez July 6, 2012 View post tag: fighting View post tag: Castscenter_img Share this article View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Clan View post tag: off View post tag: East Fighting Clan Casts Off for Security Mission East of Suez View post tag: NVALlast_img read more

Work Zone Awareness Week ending but caution still needed in work zones Pinterest Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Twitter Google+ (Photo supplied/ABC 57) Indiana and states across the U.S. observed this past week as Work Zone Awareness Week.National Work Zone Awareness Week marks the ceremonial start to highway construction season and aims to bring awareness to motorist and worker safety in highway work zones.The theme for the 2020 National Work Zone Awareness Week was “Safe Work Zones for All: Protect workers. Protect road users.”INDOT says 83 crashes have already happened this season in construction zones.“Work Zone Awareness Week is as much for everyday drivers as it is for those working on the roads,” Governor Eric Holcomb said. “We want everyone to stay safe when they are out on our roadways and that is the responsibility of all Hoosiers.”The dangers are real. In 2019, nearly 30 people were killed in INDOT work zone crashes, which was the highest loss of life in the last fifteen years.Over 1,100 INDOT construction projects are planned across the state of Indiana this year, with many projects already underway or beginning soon. So far, in 2020, 37 people have been injured in INDOT work zone crashes.“Safety is always in the forefront of our minds at INDOT. We have extensive safety plans in place to prevent work zone crashes, but we need everyone to help make that a reality,” INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness said.INDOT utilizes work zone signage, traffic alerts and social media to keep Hoosiers up to date on construction projects. Drivers can visit www.nextlevelroads.com to use an interactive online map to see projects that are happening around the state. Current work zones and real-time traffic conditions are also available on the INDOT Cars Program map.
