Opposition TV station sabotaged as political rivalry centres on media

first_imgUnder constant attack from the authoritiesRaajje TV, which supports the ousted president’s Maldivian Democratic Party(MDP), has of late been the target of many hostile statements by the police andgovernment officials.Home minister Mohamed Jameel described Raajje TV and the MDP as “enemiesof the state” at a news conference on 24 July. He also accused the station ofmaking “baseless allegations” of police violence against demonstrators duringthe protests since President Nasheed’s ouster in February. Police superintendent Abdulla Riyaz added that what Raajje TV did was “not responsible journalism.”Riyaz went on to claim that the sole aim of the previous day’s Raajje TV report about an alleged theft of fuel from a motorcycle by police officers was to defame the police. Linking Raajje TV’s coverage to the murder of a police officer on 22 July, the police announced that they would not protect the station’s reporters during the police officer’s funeral in reprisal for its “defamatory” claims.Raajje TV meanwhile maintains that it has been the target of both police harassment and discrimination as regards access to official sources of information since February.Pressure on independent regulatory bodiesThe government attacks on Raajje TV have been accompanied by governmentthreats against regulatory bodies, which are accused of being too lax towards theopposition and the MDP. The main targets have been the Elections Commission and the Maldives Broadcasting Commission (MBC).Attorney General Azima Shukoor told Television Maldives two weeks ago that the MDP’s alleged calls for violence were “a fact.” She said: “The failure of independent oversight institutions to take action has put the democratic process in the Maldives in jeopardy. Institutions that must take responsibility are not doing their job. (We have) to take action against them.”Shukoor added that the government would refer the issue to the parliament(Majlis). “The executive will conduct necessary legal work to take such action. Wewill submit this case to the Majlis.”Fuad Thawfeeq of the Elections Commission responded that the commission couldnot restrict the constitutionally guaranteed freedom of assembly and speech and would not “yield to threats and intimidation.” The MBC, for its part, asked Raajje TV to apologize for its report about the alleged theft of fuel by police officers. to go further News Help by sharing this information August 9, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Opposition TV station sabotaged as political rivalry centres on media Organisation MaldivesAsia – Pacific Indiscriminate violence during protestsThe way political rivalry is expressed is not just verbal. Last month’s demonstrations in Malé for early elections were accompanied by police attacks onboth journalists and protesters.A reporter who covered the protests told Reporters Without Borders that the policethreatened representatives of the pro-MDP media while demonstrators targetedmedia that support the current government. Demonstrators also used press cards to access areas that had been cordoned off by the police.At the same time, groups were paid to create disturbances during the protests inorder to give the police grounds for intervening. Whether they were covering thedemonstrations or participating in them, journalists were caught in a trap and often found themselves receiving baton blows or pepper spray.Asward Ibrahim Waheed of Raajje TV and Ali Naseer of Cable News Maldives (CNM) were arrested while filming police overpowering a demonstrator on 9 July and were held for several hours. Mohamed Ameeth, reporter for DhiTV, a TV station that has usually opposed the MDP, was accosted by demonstrators.Minivan Daily reporter Ahmed Haisam and Raajje TV cameraman Ahmed Shanoon were attacked by police on 11 July, while Murshid Abdul Hakeem of the Sun Online news website was rushed unconscious to hospital after being struck on the head by missile thrown by a demonstrator.In view of the chaotic nature of the protests and the confusion between thoseresponsible for violence and the victims, the Maldives Journalists Association (MJA)has urged media personnel not to participate.According to the MJA, journalists become “political activists” by participating indemonstrations and, in so doing, violate media ethics. The MJA has also cautionedagainst party use of the media as “political tools” and has asked the government to guarantee an environment that favours independent journalism.The situation is extremely tense six months after Nasheed’s ouster. In mid-July, the former president was accused of arresting a judge illegally while he was in office.Former home minister Hassan Mahir was arrested on 24 July on a charge of inciting violence against the police during a speech at an MDP rally in Usfasgandu.On 2 August, Nasheed was interrogated after the police released a recording of a29 May conversation between him and MDP parliamentarian Mariya Ahmed Didithat allegedly proved his and his party’s involvement in inciting violence against the police. The MDP responded by accusing the authorities of fabricating evidence in a bid to prevent Nasheed from running in the next election.Maldives is ranked 73rd out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters WithoutBorders press freedom index, which was released before last February’s events. Themedia situation has deteriorated dramatically since then.Photo: AFP PHOTO/STR RSF calls for open trial of Maldivian blogger’s accused murderers July 15, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en center_img Maldivian president’s comms chief accused of sexually harassing journalist MaldivesAsia – Pacific RSF seeks press freedom pledges from Maldives presidential candidates Receive email alerts News September 12, 2018 Find out more Follow the news on Maldives News Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the break-in two days ago at theopposition television station Raajje TV by intruders who forced it off the air bycutting essential cables. It has yet to resume broadcasting.”This targeted and well-prepared operation was the foreseeable culminationof the new government’s escalating verbal attacks on Raajje TV,” ReportersWithout Borders said. “How the authorities respond will be seen as a test of theircommitment to media pluralism.”Unfortunately, it seems we were right to express concern about the implications for media freedom when Mohamed Nasheed was ousted as president on 7 February by Mohamed Waheed Hassan, his successor. The growing media polarization between ‘pro-Nasheed’ and ‘pro-Hassan’ camps has reached a toxic level and the right to receive and impart news and information is the first victim.”Many journalists have been arrested, attacked or threatened in recent monthsduring demonstrations organized by Nasheed’s supporters to press their call forearly elections. While appealing to all sides to calm down and reflect on the role they should play in a democratic debate, Reporters Without Borders condemns these repeated attacks on journalists by the authorities.”The government and police have played a leading role in the deterioration of thesituation,” Reporters Without Borders said. Instead of trying to create a healthyenvironment that would assist the development of a free and pluralistic press, they have exacerbated the rivalry and used the media for political ends.” We call on the authorities to moderate their criticism of Raajje TV, to ensurethat the sabotage of the station is fully and impartially investigated, and to makesure that journalists are not subjected to further attacks. At the same time, weurge Raajje TV’s journalists to make a clear distinction between their politicalinvolvement and their professional work.”Raajje TV silencedThe break-in at Raajje TV was carried out between 7 and 8 a.m. on 7 August. Raajje TV deputy CEO Abdulla Yamin said the intruders must have known the station well. The building’s electronic security system was neutralized in advance.The cables needed to replace those that were severed are expensive and have to be imported. Yamin nonetheless insisted that every effort would be made to resume broadcasting within the next 24 hours. April 23, 2018 Find out morelast_img read more

Government pleader Poornima Kantharia had told the bench that the said policemen they used fiber lathis in a bid to discipline the deceased.whether the deceased succumbed to the injuries inflicted by reason of such assault by fiber lathis is a matter which needs further investigation.As per the Court’s directions, a status report dated August 17, 2020 was filed by Suhas Raikar, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Santacruz Division, Mumba. After reading the report, the bench expressed annoyance at the lack of seriousness in the said investigation-“We have read the report and express our displeasure at the manner in which the investigation in question is being handled by Mumbai Police. The Addl. Commissioner of Police who was in-charge of investigation between April 10 and July 23, 2020, proceeded on sick leave on July 29, 2020, resulting in entrustment of the investigation to Mr. Raikar. Mr. Raikar has taken over the investigation on August 14, 2020. Obviously, in such a short time, he has not been able to make much headway and has prayed for time to complete the investigation.”Moreover, Court observed-“Allegations of police excess committed on the deceased victim having surfaced, concern was expressed in no uncertain terms in our earlier order that there should be free, fair and meaningful investigation of the crime. We thus expected Mumbai Police to be diligent in completing the investigation with utmost expedition and thereby provide a sense of credibility. Prima facie, the police has been dragging its feet and the situation that has since emerged leaves a lot to be desired. We have no option but to direct the Commissioner of Police, Mumbai Police to constitute a Special Investigation Team comprising of two police officers of impeccable integrity and unquestionable competence. Such officers shall be appointed by the Commissioner of Police within 24 hours of receipt of a copy of this order, whereafter all papers, documents, and materials collected during investigation shall be handed over to the officers comprising the said investigation team.”Petitioner’s advocate Gopal Sankaranarayan argued that there are at least 13 videos in their possession of policemen assaulting citizens for allegedly violating lockdown orders. Court noted that there are two sides to this argument as many citizens have violated lockdown orders which is also not correct. Finally, the bench said-“We hope and trust that the Special Investigation Team shall fairly, freely, efficiently and meaningfully conduct and complete the investigation and be in position to place the police report under Section 173(2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure by the time we assemble next on September 21, 2020. In the meanwhile, the petitioner shall be free to offer suggestions to curb alleged police brutality complained of by him.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Navy to honor Doris Miller with first aircraft carrier named after African American

first_imgU.S. Navy(NEW YORK) — The U.S. Navy is set to announce Monday that a future aircraft carrier will be the first named in honor of an African American. The ship will be named in honor of Doris Miller, who was serving as a ship’s cook during the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly said in a statement Sunday. The announcement is timed to coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. Day.This will be the second ship named in honor of Miller for his actions during the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. When the attack from the Japanese began, Miller was collecting laundry on the West Virginia battleship. Miller headed to his battle station, but found it destroyed by torpedo damage. Miller helped move injured sailors to safety before he was ordered to help the captain of the ship, who was mortally wounded. After that, Miller manned an anti-aircraft machine gun, a weapon he had not been trained to operate, until it was out of ammunition.When the ship was ordered to be abandoned because of fires and flaming oil from another destroyed ship, Miller again helped move injured sailors. Miller’s actions earned a commendation from the secretary of the Navy at the time, which was presented to him by Adm. Chester Nimitz, then-commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. “This marks the first time in this conflict that such high tribute has been made in the Pacific Fleet to a member of his race and I’m sure the future will see others similarly honored for brave acts,” Nimitz said at the time.The USS Miller, a frigate, was also named in honor of Miller. Miller also received a Purple Heart Medal, the American Defense Service Medal, Fleet Clasp, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal and the World War II Victory Medal. Miller died in action in 1943 after a torpedo hit the ship he was aboard in the Gilbert Islands. “Doris Miller stood for everything that is good about our nation, and his story deserves to be remembered and repeated wherever our people continue the watch today,” Modly said in a statement.In a press release, the Navy said that the future USS Doris Miller will be the “premier forward asset for crisis response and humanitarian relief, and early decisive striking power in a major combat operations.” Modly is expected to officially announce the naming of the future Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier at a ceremony in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Walker, who was speaking at the British Occupational Hygiene Society’sannual conference in March, said the response so far of the industry advisorycommittees that report to the Health and Safety Commission was an encouragingindication that progress was being made. For instance, the committee for the paper and board industry had committedto reducing accidents by 50 per cent. In the printing industry, targets had been set for reducing days lostthrough manual handling accidents by 15 per cent, and machinery accidents by 5per cent, by the end of 2003. The committee for the health services had said it aimed to reduce accidentsin England by 30 per cent by 2004, while the quarrying industry committee wasaiming to halve injuries by 2005. The construction industry was looking at cutting death and serious injuriesby 40 per cent over the next four years and by two- thirds by 2010, and toreduce days lost through accidents and illness by half by the end of thedecade, he added. The HSE has been working to better define the management of stress at workby, for example, piloting local benchmarking groups to share good practice andknowledge about stress between small and medium-sized firms and among tradeunion safety representatives.
