Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Organisation News Reporters Without Borders is dismayed by today’s fatal shooting of Anja Niedringhaus, a German photographer with the Associated Press, while she was covering the delivery of ballots to polling stations in Tanai, a district in the eastern province of Khost near the border with Pakistan.Kathy Gannon, a Canadian journalist who is the AP’s special regional correspondent for Pakistan and Afghanistan, was wounded in the shooting. The local authorities arrested the man who shot them, who was a uniformed police officer.“We offer our heartfelt condolences to Anja Niedringhaus’s family and friends,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “The shooting has highlighted the permanent and ubiquitous danger for reporters in some regions of Afghanistan. “It is all the more shocking for apparently being the work of a policeman who should have been protecting Afghan and foreign journalists. We call on the authorities to do everything possible to guarantee the safety of journalists, whose role is crucial at the height of the electoral process.”Ismaïl added: “By imposing a climate of terror, armed groups such as the Taliban, the Haqqani network and Al-Qaeda are trying to get as many observers as possible to flee and to force the closure of large numbers of polling stations – all this in order to undermine the presidential election’s legitimacy.”Aged 48 and an experienced press photographer, Niedringhaus was part of a group of journalists who were accompanying members of the Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan (IEC) as they delivered ballot material to polling stations.Mobarez Khodran, the Khost governor’s spokesman, said the journalists had just arrived at a police station and were still in their car when, at around 10:45 a.m., a police officer, “Naghibullah”, opened fire on them, killing Niedringhaus and injuring Gannon.According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Gannon is in a stable condition in a nearby hospital. The police officer who had shot the journalists was surrounded by other police officers and arrested. The district of Tanai borders the Pakistani district of North Waziristan, a Haqqani network and Al-Qaeda stronghold.Niedringhaus began her career as a photographer by working for a local German newspaper. After covering the fall of the Berlin Wall for the European Pressphoto Agency, she specialized in war reporting and in 2002 joined the Associated Press, covering conflicts in Israel, Palestine, Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan.Reporters Without Borders reiterates the utmost importance of protecting the journalists who are in Afghanistan to cover tomorrow’s presidential election. Nils Horner, a journalist with Swedish and British dual nationality, was gunned down in a well-protected district in central Kabul on 11 March, shortly after the Taliban announced their intention to disrupt the election.On 2 April, Reporters Without Borders issued a call for the reinforcement of measures to protect journalists and prevent risks.Reporters Without Borders recently issued a report about media freedom in Afghanistan. Entitled “Presidential election in Afghanistan: local media on the front line”, it condemned the prevailing impunity for violence against the media and made recommendations to the authorities for combatting it. Afghanistan is ranked 128th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Suresh Kumar Kait allowing the State Government’s appeal had set aside the bail order dated 20th June 2020, passed by Sh.Vinod Yadav, learned ASJ, Karkardooma Courts, Delhi in pursuance to FIR No.134/2020 dated 05.03.2020 registered at Police Station Dayal Pur, Delhi for the offences punishable u/s 147/148/149/307/395/436/ 455/201/114/505/153-A/120-B of IPC. The respondent/accused is an educationist, responsible for running and managing various schools like the Rajdhani Public School and Victoria Public School. He is accused of leading riots in the Northeastern parts of Delhi in February this year. The Ld. Counsel for the respondent/accused, Sr. Adv. Ramesh Gupta, had argued that, Faisal had no criminal antecedents and the same had been admitted by the Investigating Officer and duly recorded in the Bail order dated 20th June 2020. It was also brought out before the court that he had never made any attempt of absconding and was not at flight risk and had also cooperated with the investigating agencies. It was also highlighted that the Ld. Sessions Court while granting the Bail had looked into the CDR Records of the Mobile Phone of the Respondent which showed that on the date of the alleged incident on 24 the February 2020, he had called the Police 6 times for help and made complaint about the damage caused to his School. Even the Chargesheet had recorded that Faisal was not present at the scene of the riots. It was argued that, the respondent was arrested in March and the Chargesheet was filed in June and that the trial was likely to take time for which the Respondent ought to be released on bail. A distinction was also sought to be established between rejection of bail and cancellation of bail already granted placing reliance on the Supreme Court judgement in Dolat Ram & Ors. vs. State of Haryana (1995 SCC (1) 349) among others. A bail once granted cannot be cancelled without “cogent” and “overwhelming” reasons and the present petition had failed to bring out any such reasons. Prosecution’s own evidence (photograph) relied upon by them also showed Faisal in the vicinity of the school around 2 PM when they claim that the riots commenced after 3PM. The Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi, appearing for the State argued that, Faisal was the kingpin and mastermind of the alleged incident and had deliberately allowed rioters to use his school to wreak havoc in surrounding areas, particularly the neighbouring DRP School. He asserted that, bail of the Respondent/ accused in this case will adversely affect the investigation of other related cases too. The brazenness and impunity with which the accused had committed these offences disentitled him from seeking bail and his character indicates the likelihood of him evading the process of law and threatening the witnesses. The State also maintained that, Faisal had made available ropes, bottles, etc., and the catapult to be used by rioters. The lower court had erred in construing the evidentiary statements of the Prosecution witnesses Roop Singh, Manoj and Geeta. On the basis of the arguments the High Court finding merits in the submission of the State had held that the lower court had allowed Faisal bail at a premature stage ignoring relevant material. It was observed that, “…keeping in view the fact that respondent/accused is wealthy and he has reputation and roots in the society, therefore, since investigation in the present FIR is pending and the prosecution is likely to file supplementary chargesheet, therefore, the respondent/ accused may influence the witnesses and hamper the investigation and trial.” The High Court from the material produced on record concluded that, The CCTV footage produced showed Faisal behind Rajdhani School. The Additional Sessions Judge had found to the contrary. There were flowcharts to show that his links to Pinjra Tod, PFI, and Muslim Clerics, but investigations were ongoing. The lower court had wrongly relied on the statements of the prosecution witnesses to arrive at the finding of non-involvement of the accused in the riots. The court also took note of the lower court’s order being kept on hold by a Supreme Court order, and recorded that Faisal continued in prison even after the bail initially allowed him. It may also be noted that the High Court while cancelling the order of bail also cautioned that “The Trial Court shall not get influenced during trial by the observations made by this Court while passing this order.” Sr. Adv. Ramesh Gupta represented the Accused/Respondent. Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi appeared for the State.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Story

With the overexploitation of many conventional fish stcocks, and growing interest in harvesting new kinds of food from the sea, there is increasing need for managers of fisheries to take account of interactions among species. In particular, as Antarctic krill-fishing industries grow, there is a need to agree upon sound principles for managing the Southern Ocean ecosystem. Using simple models, we discuss the way multispecies food webs respond to the harvesting of species at differrent trophic levels. These biological and economic insights are applied to a discussion of fisheries in the Southern Otean and the North Sea and to enunciate some for harvesting in multispecies systems.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailmoodboard/Thinkstick(NEW YORK) — Young athletes have been stepping forward to apologize to the public over past social media posts that many have found offensive or even vicious, saying they regret the comments they posted when they were much younger.Major League Baseball All-Star Josh Hader, 24, who admitted tweeting various racist, misogynist and homophobic tweets in 2011 and 2012, expressed remorse over the comments that had surfaced earlier this month. Hader was 17 and 18 years old at the time he wrote many of the offensive tweets.“As a child I was immature and obviously I said some stuff that was inexcusable,” Hader told reporters in the locker room after the major league all-star game. “That doesn’t reflect on who I am as a person today.”“There’s no excuse for what was said and, ya know, I’m deeply sorry for what I’ve said,” he said.Major League Baseball responded, as well, describing the tweets as “highly offensive and hurtful language.”“During last night’s game we became aware of Mr. Hader’s unacceptable social media comments in years past and have since been in communication with the Brewers regarding our shared concerns,” MLB said in a statement at the time. “After the game, Mr. Hader took the necessary step of expressing remorse for his highly offensive and hurtful language, which fails to represent the values of our game and our expectations for all those who are a part of it. The Office of the Commissioner will require sensitivity training for Mr. Hader and participation in MLB’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.”Lauren Walsh, who runs a publicity company that helps athletes clean up their images, said she has assisted 40 NFL athletes with image control in the past several years.She told ABC News she goes through every post the athletes have ever put up since they started their social media accounts.“They really have to stop and think before they put anything out there because there are more people watching other things that they do,” Walsh said. “Again, you don’t just go to show up and play the game, people want to know more about you, connect with you and one of the biggest things is through social media.”A lot of athletes have posted offensive comments when they were kids or teenagers, according Walsh, but nasty comments can lead to the loss of their careers.Sean Newcomb and Trea Turner are the latest high-profile athlete whose offensive tweets from years past have backfired. Apparently homophobic and racially insensitive tweets that Turner posted from 2011 and 2012 reappeared recently on the internet. The 25-year-old, a shortstop for the Washington Nationals, apologized in a statement released by the team.“I believe people who know me understand those regrettable actions do not reflect my values or who I am,” Turner said, according to the Associated Press. “But I understand the hurtful nature of such language and am sorry to have brought any negative light to the Nationals organization, myself or the game I love.”The Atlanta Braves released a statement saying that it is aware of the past tweets from Newcomb and that the organization was working with the player.“We are aware of the tweets that surfaced after today’s game and have spoken to Sean who is incredibly remorseful,” the statement read.“Regardless of how long ago he posted them, he is aware of the insensitivity and is taking full responsibility,” the statement continued. “We find the tweet hurtful and incredibly disappointing and even though he was 18 or 19 years old when posted, it doesn’t make them any less tolerable. We will work together with Sean towards mending the wounds created in our community.”But Walsh said it can take years to restore a player’s name after posting offensive comments because their “entire brand” is out there.“It’s important that it’s up to you to make sure that you are … putting the right stuff out there,” Walsh said. “The biggest thing is definitely acknowledging that it was that and acknowledging that it happened.”The next step is to start doing more positive things.“Start to put things out there in a positive light or you start to go out in the community or give back to the next generation, but they have to do in a way that authentic to themselves,” she added.Some colleges, like Creighton University, teach their student athletes about good decision-making on social media.Creighton also brings in guest speakers to help the athletes learn about public relations matters such as interviews, social media and public speaking, according to university spokesman Rob Anderson.Like Walsh, Anderson agreed that athletes can be held up as examples and fans are following their activities.“Whether they want to accept it or not, athletes are role models to many within the community and sport they play,” Anderson told ABC News via email. “Having offensive words/actions attributed to them or their social media accounts generates unwanted publicity that casts the athlete into a negative light, and certainly can disrupt the harmony of a locker room or fan base (or worse).”What athletes post on social media can have the same impact as what they say and last even longer.“Posts on social media should be considered to have the same weight as the spoken word in a newspaper or television interview,” Anderson said, “but carry an even bigger risk to go viral in the days and years to come.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
