The other events will carry on as planned, including the screening on Monday of a documentary on the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong.“Whilst we value freedom of expression, the safety of our partners remains a major concern”, the organizers and partners jointly said. This forced cancellation comes a month after the expulsion of journalist Victor Mallet, Asia news editor for the Financial Times and vice-president of the Foreign Correspondents Club (FCCHK), following his participation as moderator at a luncheon event featuring a Hong Kong independence activist.In a recent report, the Hong Kong Journalists Association (HKJA) denounced the continuous fall in press freedom in the former British colony.

The two journalists were arrested by the security forces of the Union of Islamic Courts (UIC) at Mogadishu airport yesterday morning and were held all day at the Waberi district police station without being charged or being told the official reason for their detention.”The NUSOJ is an independent, legitimate and courageous organisation,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It represents and defends Somali journalists, who risk their lives to do their duty at a time of great uncertainty and violence. All it does is defend the right to be informed, so we do not understand why its leaders are suspected and mistreated.”The press freedom organisation added: “We call on Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys, the head of the UIC’s Shoura Council, to ensure that the NUSOJ is able to work freely throughout the country without being the target of attempts to destabilise or destroy it.”Osman was about to board a flight to Dubai at 9:45 a.m. when Isak, who had accompanied him to the airport, was detained by a security official and Osman was prevented from boarding. A security officer then told them they were “under arrest.” After being taken to the airport police post, they were transferred blindfolded to the Waberi district police station.The security forces seized Osman’s laptop, documents he had with him, their passports and their mobile phones. A security officer came and interrogated them in their holding cell, forcing them to reveal the password so that he could look at Osman’s e-mail messages.They were freed at around 8:30 p.m. after the UIC’s deputy director of security, Sheikh Mukhtar Robow (also known as “Abu Mansur”), intervened. He personally drove them to their Mogadishu offices, assuring them they would “suffer no injustice” and were “innocent until found guilty by a court.” They have not been charged but the confiscated personal effects have not been returned to them.“We are not opponents of the Islamic courts,” Osman told Reporters Without Borders by phone today. “We think they were manipulated and given false information about us. We were blindfolded and held without any explanation. I was prevented from leaving on a business trip and our personnel effects were seized. Our rights were violated, given that we were not charged and no court convicted us.”The NUSOJ was awarded the 2005 Reporters Without Borders – Fondation de France prize in the “Press Freedom Defender” category.

Give Food Ration Kits, Stop Pay Cuts For Labourers During Lockdown : AICCTU Seek Directions From Karnataka High Court To State

first_imgNews UpdatesGive Food Ration Kits, Stop Pay Cuts For Labourers During Lockdown : AICCTU Seek Directions From Karnataka High Court To State Mustafa Plumber27 April 2021 7:14 PMShare This – xThe All India Central Council of Trade Unions (AICCTU) on Tuesday filed a memo before the Karnataka High Court bringing to the notice of the court the serious impact on food, livelihood and economic security of large sections of the society, particularly the unorganised workers, farmers and landless labourers, during the 14-day lockdown across the state, from Tuesday 9 pm. Advocate Clifton Rozario filed the memo which states that post the lockdown of 2020, the number of people who are poor, increased by 75 million as per research by the Pew Institute. It is feared that the situation will be further exacerbated by this lockdown, and severely compromise the right to livelihood, education, food and shelter. Furthermore they will be unable to pay off any outstanding debts and in fact would be pushed into seeking more loans. The memo also states that “It is necessary to remember that for almost a whole year, children of government schools and colleges had no classes – online or offline. It is also submitted that the State Government and its departments must bestow special focus on vulnerable groups of society, including small and marginal farmers, agricultural labour, plantation workers, casual labour, domestic workers, street vendors, migrant workers, gig workers, garment workers, powrakarmikas, construction workers, and a vast body of people who are in the informal sector, as also homeless persons, senior citizens, slum dwellers, persons with disabilities, widows, orphans, those who have lost resources and homes during the recent climate-related floods and droughts, those residing in informal settlements, etc”. The memo reads “There is an added onus on the governments to ensure that these vulnerable populations receive special focus in the provision of emergency food, monetary relief and medical support. Article 21 protects the Fundamental Right to Life and Livelihood and of emergency food, monetary relief and medical support”. Further, it is said that under section 30 the National Food Security Act, the Central Government and the State Governments are mandated to give special focus to the needs of the vulnerable groups for ensuring their food security. Accordingly, it is sought the following prayers: A. Direct the State Government to announce ration kits for all persons suffering from food insecurity B. Direct the State Government to pass orders on the lines of the MHA order dated 29.03.2020 directing employers to make payment of wages to their employees for the period that their establishment was closed. C. Direct the State Government to pass orders on the lines of the MHA order dated 29.03.2020 directing that rent would not be collected for a period of one month and anyone forcibly vacating tenants would be liable for action (on the lines of Annexure-T). D. Direct the State Government to pass an order on the lines of the Advisory dated 20.03.2021, mandating employers/owners of establishments not to terminate employees, particularly casual or contractual, or reduce their wages. E. Direct the State Government to establish separate helplines by the labour department to assist workers who are not receiving their wages for the lockdown period. F Direct the State Government to establish a separate helpline to assist tenants who are facing problems from their house owners on account of rent. G. Direct the state government to announce compensation packages for all farmers and all sections of workers. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Aravind Kuamar said it would consider the issues raised in the memo at a later stage. However, it directed Advocate General to convene a meeting of the advocates appearing in this group of petitions and will understand from them their grievances not only regarding the aspects of (Availability of beds, Remdesivir and Oxygen) but all other aspects, including issues of Food security, vaccination etc.TagsKarnataka High Court All India Central Council of Trade Unions (AICCTU) 14-Day Lockdown Across The State Karnataka Next Storylast_img read more

Pennsylvania officer won’t face charges for shooting suspect inside police station

first_imgNew Hope Police Department(NEW HOPE, Pennsylvania) — A Pennsylvania police officer will not face charges for accidentally shooting a suspect in the stomach inside a police station last month, the district attorney announced Friday.Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub declined to press charges against a New Hope, Pennsylvania, police officer who apparently meant to pull out his Taser, but instead drew his gun and shot a suspect inside an interview room. The suspect, Brian Riling, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but survived.“This was an honest mistake, with an unfortunate consequence,” Weintraub told Philadelphia ABC station WPVI.Weintraub added, “The conduct was neither justified nor criminal, but excused because the officer honestly believed that he was using his Taser when he shot Mr. Riling in the stomach.”Surveillance video from inside the police department shows Riling drop something “consistent with a drug baggie,” according to police, on the ground while adjusting his belt and jeans. He steps on the baggie and then gets into a scuffle with two officers when they try to remove his foot from on top of the object.Riling is described as a “fit” 6-foot-4, 240-pound construction worker in the district attorney’s release.One of the officers shouts “Taser!” and reaches to his right hip, but instead draws his service weapon and fires one shot into Riling’s midsection. Riling collapses on the ground, holding his stomach, as the two officers immediately leave the cramped interrogation room.Riling initially isn’t clear what happened, shouting at the officer, “Was that a gun? You shot me with a gun?”Weintraub wrote that the officer — who is not being named as charges were not filed — would have been justified in using his stun gun.According to section 304 of the Pennsylvania Crimes Code, “a person has a defense to a criminal charge if he makes a mistake as a matter of fact for which there is a reasonable explanation or excuse.”Riling had been taken into custody for charges of retaliation against a victim and simple assault, according to police.The officer retired on April 10 and was lauded by the district attorney.“What I can say, to be fair, is the numbers of letters of support over his lengthy career far outweighed the very minor infractions he may have had in his historical past,” Weintraub told WPVI.The district attorney notes the officer was wearing his stun gun in the wrong spot, and not in accordance with department policy.The New Hope Police Department released a statement, saying, “The Department thanks District Attorney Weintraub and the members of his office for their thorough investigation and report. The Police Department has no further information to release, and no further comment on this matter.”Riling is due in court for a preliminary hearing on his charges Monday, according to the Bucks County Courier Times.

Wisconsin breaks own record for new COVID cases

first_imgNarvikk/iStockBy ERIN SCHUMAKER, ABC News(MADISON, Wisc.) — Wisconsin broke its own single-day record for novel coronavirus cases on Friday, reporting 2,533 new infections and surpassing the single-day record of 2,034 cases it logged a day prior, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.In addition to rising case counts, the state’s seven-day average for positive COVID-19 tests reached 15.3% on Friday.A high positivity rate can be a sign that a state is only testing its sickest patients and failing to cast a net wide enough to accurately capture community transmission, according to Johns Hopkins University.The World Health Organization recommends that governments get their positivity testing threshold below 5%.New infections over the last month are being driven by people between the ages of 18 and 24, according to health department data.During a press call on Thursday, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said he was “very concerned” about the rising cases among young people.“I think it’s pretty clear that it’s the college campuses that are driving this, more than anything,” Barrett said. “There really has to be a redoubling of efforts to make sure that college students are taking this seriously, because it clearly is having an impact right now.”Experts consider deaths from COVID-19 to be a lagging indictor of the outbreak’s severity, meaning that since deaths trail rising infections, positivity rates and hospitalizations, deaths typically reflect long-term trends, not in-the-moment severity.As of Friday, 1,238 people in Wisconsin had died of the virus, according to the health department.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailKarwai Tang/Getty Images(LONDON) — For the second year in a row, royal sisters-in-law Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, stepped out together for the Ladies’ Singles Final at Wimbledon.And for the second year in a row, the pair watched Meghan’s close friend Serena Williams compete in the final, vying for her 24th Grand Slam title.Duchesses Kate and Meghan watched from the royal box Saturday as Williams took on seventh-seed Simona Halep.“She couldn’t be a better friend to me,” Williams said of Meghan in a press conference Wednesday following her semifinal win. “Low moments, high moments, she’s always there and that’s all I want to be to her.”Saturday also marked the second Wimbledon appearance this year for both Kate and Meghan.The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance at Wimbledon last week to watch Williams win her second round match. That visit drew some controversy over allegations of extra tight security around the duchess, who sat with friends in the members’ section.Kate, patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, also visited Wimbledon last week, watching a British player compete and visiting the practice courts and warm-up area.Saturday’s appearance at Wimbledon is the second joint outing this week for Kate and Meghan.The pair stepped out, with their kids in tow, on Wednesday to watch their husbands, Prince William and Prince Harry, play a charity polo match.Meghan was a newlywed last year when she sat courtside with Kate for the Ladies’ Singles Final, in which Williams lost to Angelique Kerber. Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, were guests at Harry and Meghan’s May 2018 wedding in Windsor.Kate is a longtime tennis fan and a tennis player. She told guests at Wimbledon last week that eight-time Wimbledon winner Roger Federer, also a semifinalist in this year’s tournament, is the favorite player of her 5-year-old son Prince George.She also said the superstar has even played tennis with George, which Federer said took place at Kate’s parents’ home in Bucklebury.Kate and Prince William plan to attend the Men’s Singles Final Sunday at Wimbledon, according to Kensington Palace.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
