Preventive censorship, harassment and armed attack signal bad start to year for Brazilian press

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more Reports Help by sharing this information Organisation May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by an increase in legal proceedings and harassment of the press by certain officials since the start of the year, and by an armed attack on a journalist with a local TV station who investigates sensitive subjects. April 15, 2021 Find out more BrazilAmericas Follow the news on Brazil News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News BrazilAmericas Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil February 7, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Preventive censorship, harassment and armed attack signal bad start to year for Brazilian press Receive email alerts to go further News RSF_en 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about an increase in legal proceedings against media and journalists since the start of the year. These have included preventive censorship, fines and even a threat of imprisonment for lack of a degree. The organisation also condemned an armed attack on a TV presenter in the western city of Porto Velho on 4 January.“This legal hounding of the media at both the federal and state level, and the threats by gunmen against a TV journalist who investigates sensitive subjects are symptoms of the continuing fragility of press freedom in Brazil,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Last year, a journalist was murdered while the press was the target of many attacks and legal procedures in the run-up to the elections in October.”The press freedom organisation added: “We fear that history will repeat itself as the 2008 municipal elections approach, and we call on the federal authorities to do what is necessary to guarantee freedom of information as required by the constitution and the Chapultepec Declaration which President Lula signed on 3 May of last year.”Five individuals armed with revolvers burst into the home of TV presenter Domingues Júnior of local station Rede TV Rondônia in the Rondônia state capital of Porto Velho on 4 January, beating Júnior, threatening his family, stealing items of value and taking a car and a motorcycle as they left. Júnior, who had to be hospitalised, said the attack was in reprisal for his criticism of vote-buying and federal police corruption in his programme, “Fala Rondônia.” He had been receiving death threats by e-mail since December.As well as this physical attack on a journalist, press freedom has been threatened by several absurd legal decisions since the start of the year. Francisco Peçanha Martins, the president of the Superior Court of Justice (STJ), one of the two highest federal courts, confirmed on 25 January that the weekly Época, which is owned by the Editora Globo group, would have to pay 410,000 reals (150,000 euros) in damages to Estevam and Sônia Hernandes, a husband-and-wife team that heads an evangelical church called Renascer em Cristo (Born Again in Christ).The couple, who have been charged with fraud and tax evasion, were arrested on arrival in the United States on 9 January in possession of 56,000 dollars in cash which they had not declared to US customs. Época had been covering Renascer em Cristo’s questionable financial practices since 2002. The courts have ruled twice in the couple’s favour, at both the lower and appeal level. Editora Globo agreed on 26 January to pay a legal deposit of 72,000 euros but the courts are continuing to press for payment of the full amount of damages. The group has filed another appeal but, under Brazilian law, implementation of the sentence is not suspended pending the outcome.The Regional Electoral Court (TRE) in the southwestern state of Mato Grosso do Sul issued a preventive censorship order on 26 January against the regional daily O Correio do Estado, banning it from referring to the state governor’s son, André Puccinelli Jr, who has been charged in connection with a case of alleged electoral fraud. Each mention of his name in violation of the order is punishable by a fine of 50,000 reals (18,500 euros) under the censorship order, which also applies to other news media.Two days after the TRE issued its order, O Correio do Estado defied it by publishing an interview with Puccinelli in which he rejected the accusations against him. The newspaper has appealed against the order but the appeal court’s ruling, which was due on 5 February, has still not been issued.Silvério Netto of radio Total FM in the eastern state of Minas Gerais was briefly detained in December on the orders of Richard Fernando Silva, a judge he had interviewed, for failing to produce evidence that he is qualified to be a journalist, despite the fact that the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Brazil’s highest court, ruled on 21 November that journalists do not have to have a degree in order to work.Netto appeared before a court presided by Silva, his accuser, and was released pending appeal. The appeal hearing, set for 26 February, is also to be presided by Silva.Finally, in an unprecedented move on 25 January, President Lula’s former press secretary Luiz Gushiken, who is a suspect in a case of alleged embezzlement, sent a list of journalists “liable to attack my honour” to the directorate of federal police. The list includes Leonardo Attuch of the news weekly IstoÉ, Lauro Jardim and Diogo Mainardi of the weekly Veja and journalists working for the weekly Carta Capital. last_img read more

It has also opposed the releasing of this letter in “public domain” as it may impact judicial independence. The Bar Council of India, SCAORA and Delhi High Court Bar Association have also issued statements, condemning the CM’s move.’Lacking In Propriety’: SCAORA Condemns Jagan Mohan Reddy’s Letter Regarding Justice Ramana The Andhra Pradesh High Court has ordered a CBI inquiry into cases registered for defamatory remarks against Judiciary, by YSRCP leaders. On October 11, Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, wrote a complaint to the Chief Justice of India, S A Bobde, alleging that some High Court judges are attempting to protect the interests of the major opposition party, Telugu Desom Party, in politically sensitive matters. A striking feature of the complaint – details of which were revealed to the media in a presser by Ajaya Kellam, the advisor of the CM, on Saturday evening – was that it had accused senior Supreme Court judge, Justice N V Ramana, who is next in line to be the Chief Justice of India, of influencing the administration of justice in the High Court. Inter alia, a plea has also been moved before the Supreme Court stating that the contents of Reddy’s letter have put the confidence of people in Judiciary at stake. Another PIL seeks Reddy’s removal from the of the Chief Minister for “misusing his position and power as a Chief Minister by making a false, vague, political and scandalized remarks and allegations openly in the public and media against the senior most sitting judge of this Hon’ble Court and render Justice.” Click Here To Download Statement Read Statement Next Storylast_img read more

Interpreting the Environmental Protocol — a recipe for international confusion?

first_imgTurning international agreement into national law has never been rapid or simple. Each country has its own parliamentary procedures, its own legal system and its own cultural interpretation of what the words in the international agreement actually mean. Last but not least, the importance attached to implementing Treaty law is clearly different between countries, as the amazingly patchy implementation of existing Treaty Recommendations shows.last_img

COVID-19 forces TechnipFMC to defer business separation plan

first_img TechnipFMC will split its business into two separate publicly traded companies (Credit: TechnipFMC plc) TechnipFMC said that its plans to split its operations into two separate entities have been deferred owing to the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic and other factors.The oilfield services provider was to spin off its engineering and construction business into a separate company to be named as Technip Energies. The other business, which will be engaged in providing integrated technology and services to the oil and gas industry, will operate as TechnipFMC.The oilfield services contractor said that there has been a material change in the market conditions owing to the global outbreak of novel coronavirus. Besides, the company said that there has been a sharp decline in commodity prices alongside increased volatility in global equity markets, which have led to its decision to delay the spin off.The company said that the effects of the events have created a market environment that is not conducive currently to its planned separation into two separate publicly traded companies.TechnipFMC sticks to the business separation planTechnipFMC stated: “The Company reiterates that the strategic rationale for the separation remains unchanged. The Company is committed to the transaction and continues its preparations to ensure that the two companies are ready for separation when the markets sufficiently recover.”However, the company did not specify the new expected timeline for completion of the proposed transaction.In January 2020, the company said that it was on track to wrap up the proposed business split in the second quarter of this year. The decision to split its business was announced in August 2019 in a move to capitalise on the global energy transition while enhancing value creation.The business separation is aimed at yielding two diversified pure-play companies with the decision expected to help in improving their focus on their respective strategies while gaining improved flexibility and scope for growth.Technip Energies will comprise Genesis, a front end engineering and design services provider in addition to Loading Systems, and Cybernetix. TechnipFMC expects the separated company to be well poised to tap into LNG opportunities due to its disciplined project delivery model, track record, and diversified capabilities. As announced in August 2019, TechnipFMC was to spin off its engineering and construction business into a separate company to be named as Technip Energieslast_img read more

Cape Verde: HMS Argyll Rescues Injured Fisherman

first_img View post tag: Defence Cape Verde: HMS Argyll Rescues Injured Fisherman View post tag: News by topic Sailors on board a Royal Navy warship operating off the coast of Africa have saved the life of a Japanese fisherman who had suffered a serious head injury.HMS Argyll was on operations approximately 20 miles off the Cape Verde coast when she received the news that a fisherman onboard the Trawler Wakashio Maru No.82 had been seriously hurt in an accident 24 hours earlier. His crewmates had been looking after him after he fell into the ship’s bilge but his condition had worsened.The Plymouth- based warship immediately sprang into action – deploying her seaboat and onboard medical officers to the vessel to assess the extent of the man’s injuries.HMS Argyll’s doctor Surgeon Lieutenant James Perry, who had only joined Argyll six weeks earlier, was quickly able to stabilise the head injury but realised he needed urgent hospital treatment.As a result the Lynx helicopter was dispatched to the scene where the injured fisherman was carefully winched on board and flown to the closest hospital in Praia, Cape Verde.Flight Commander Lieutenant Ben Jewson, Pilot Lieutenant John Phillips and winchman Leading Aircraft Engineering Technician Dan Carroll had to overcome the myriad of obstructions on the deck of the trawler to try and reach the injured man.Once the fisherman was safely embarked, the Lynx flew to Praia where an ambulance was on stand-by to make the short sprint to the nearby hospital.LAET Carroll said:“Winch transfers test the skill of all people involved and one slip up could have catastrophic consequences – however any thoughts of that pale into insignificance when you have the opportunity to potentially save someone’s life.“I’m just so glad to have played a part in this rescue.” Leading Medical Assistant Andy O’Toole said:“My training and previous experiences, including time served in Afghanistan, have helped prepare me for situations like this but nevertheless it gets your adrenalin pumping.“I am sure the treatment he received from us and the further treatment from the Cape Verde hospital will help him in his recovery.” Following the rescue HMS Argyll returned to her operations working alongside the Cape Verde Coats Guard and judicial forces before continuing her work with West African nations and several high profile visits.Commanding officer, Commander Tim Neild said:“As soon as the call came in, our natural reflex to assist a fellow mariner kicked in.“We were quickly able to assimilate all the information and put a comprehensive recovery plan in place.“I am immensely proud of the way my ship’s company reacted to this short-notice tasking which is a testament to the agility and flexibility of the modern Royal Navy, capable of dealing with rescues like this at one end of the spectrum all the way through to whites of the eyes war fighting at the other.“I sincerely hope that the Japanese fisherman makes a full recovery.’ On completion of her tasking in the Atlantic, the ship will undertake a number of important regional engagement visits before returning to her Devonport home in September 2013.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 19, 2013; Image: Royal Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Cape Verde: HMS Argyll Rescues Injured Fisherman View post tag: Navy View post tag: rescues View post tag: HMS March 19, 2013 View post tag: fisherman View post tag: Naval Share this article View post tag: Argyll View post tag: Injured View post tag: Defenselast_img read more
