Seizure and destruction of Ahmet Sik’s unpublished book: “a very dangerous precedent”

first_img News April 28, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Follow the news on Turkey March 25, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Seizure and destruction of Ahmet Sik’s unpublished book: “a very dangerous precedent” to go further TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts News Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Help by sharing this information Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law April 2, 2021 Find out more April 2, 2021 Find out more News Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor News Organisation Reporters Without Borders is deeply shocked by the seizure and destruction of all known copies of the last unpublished draft copy of a book by Ahmet Sik. This work, which explores the relationship between the police and the influential Islamic “Gülen Movement,” is said to contain revelations about the “Ergenekon” antiterrorist trial, which has tainted Turkish political life for years.Not content with preventing its publication and throwing the author into jail, the Turkish judicial authorities searched the three locations where it was thought the draft copy might be found and ordered anyone who might still be in possession of it to hand it over to the authorities or face criminal charges.By making it illegal simply to possess a computer file the legal authorities have gone to unparalleled lengths to harass investigative journalists close to the “Ergenekon” affair and have set an extremely dangerous precedent. By propagating the idea that an email received by a journalist could send him behind bars the authorities have put a deplorable and unacceptable level of pressure on media professionals. Istanbul police yesterday searched the offices of the publishing house Ithaki, the left wing newspaper Radikal and Sik’s lawyer Fikret Ilkiz. In each case, police officers searched computers and copied the file containing the draft copy of the book before deleting all traces of it. According to sources close to the case, Sik’s manuscript “The Army of the Imam,” had been sent to Ithaki for consultation and the printer had not yet taken the decision to publish it. In the offices of Radikal, the computer belonging to journalist Ertugrul Mavioglu, who is close to Sik and who, moreover, has been summoned for questioning next week for interviewing a leader of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), was searched.Police investigators also informed the journalist’s friends, colleagues and lawyers that they should hand over any copy of the manuscript or face charges of aiding and abetting the alleged terrorist conspiracy known as “Ergenekon”. The warrant, issued by an Istanbul court at the request of prosecutor Zekerya Öz, says the book contains “criminal elements” and is “propaganda for a terrorist organization”. Reached by telephone, the lawyer and general secretary of the Turkish Press Council, Oktay Huduti, told Reporters Without Borders that “the warrant was based not on an examination of the draft copy itself, but on a 49-page police report about it.”It is very doubtful that such measures are legally sound, and they certainly violate all of Ankara’s international engagements in terms of freedom of expression. At a joint press conference last night, three Turkish press organizations denounced an “interference in the right to write freely” in violation of article 29 of the Turkish constitution. Reporters Without Borders once again condemns the use of the “fight against terrorism” to justify a major draconian measure, and the perverse effects of Anti-Terrorist Law No. 3713, a legacy of darker times.Hunduti said: “Turkish law allows for the search and seizure of documents, but in no case their destruction. What is more, the person who is searched should in normal circumstances receive a copy of the document seized, which was not the case here. It is difficult to understand the legal basis for these operations, since we are not in this case even talking about a book, but an unpublished draft copy.” These operations directly contradict the reassuring statements of the Turkish government, which has insisted on the independence of the Turkish judiciary and denied that the case has any political implications. The determination shown by the prosecutor’s office in eliminating all trace of Sik’s draft copy has nonetheless reinforced suspicions about the political nature of its author’s arrest. “The Army of the Imam” investigates the alleged infiltration of the police force, the traditional defender of a secular Turkey, by the movement founded by Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen.The Turkish press has noted that any airing of this thesis would weaken the (moderate Islamist) ruling AKP party ahead of legislative elections in June. All writers that have broached the subject in books have had run-ins with Turkish justice. They include the journalist Nedim Sener, who was also arrested on 3 March, and former policeman Hanefi Avci, who was jailed for belonging to an extreme left-wing grouping. In a book published in August 2010, Avci suggested that the “Ergenekon” affair (named after an alleged clandestine secularist network that is supposed to have plotted the current government’s overthrow) may have been invented by senior police officers affiliated to the Gülen Movement.On 3 March, Sik, Sener and four Oda TV journalists were arrested on charges of “belonging to a terrorist organization,” joining three other Oda TV staff members who have been in prison since mid-February. The journalists have still not been informed about the contents of their case file and the “evidence” that supposedly justifies their arrest has still not yet been presented. As this “evidence” is unforthcoming, Reporters Without Borders continues to demand their immediate and unconditional release. (Photos: Bianet, Hürriyet, AFP, Reuters) last_img read more

Sinister threat to Macedonian journalist and his family

first_img Journalists repeatedly attacked in Macedonian political crisis Follow the news on North Macedonia News News North MacedoniaEurope – Central Asia April 22, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sinister threat to Macedonian journalist and his family March 8, 2017 Find out more Receive email alerts to go further Organisation Help by sharing this information center_img Large-scale illegal wiretapping of journalists in Macedonia Reporters Without Borders is appalled by yesterday evening’s death threat to Nova TV journalist Borjan Jovanovski and calls on the authorities to arrest those responsible.The threat took the form of a wreath with the message “Final Greetings” that was delivered to Jovanovski’s home in his absence and was received by his wife. The as yet unidentified messenger told her it had been sent by “Todor Aleksandrov,” a controversial early 20th century nationalist known for arranging the murders of fellow nationalists. “We condemn this threat to Borjan Jovanovski and his family and we urge the authorities to do everything possible to arrest those responsible and quickly bring them to justice,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said.“The situation is Macedonia is already critical and this threat to Jovanovski, one of the country’s leading independent journalists, will exacerbate the deterioration in the climate for the media. Macedonia’s justice system has a duty to deal with this threat with the utmost firmness.”Freedom of information has been declining steadily in Macedonia for the past five years, with independent media getting thinner and thinner on the ground as a result of government-ordered closures and exorbitant damages awards.Macedonia is ranked 117th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, the lowest position of any country in the European Union and Balkans region.

Resolution recognizes role of journalists covering protests

first_img RSF_en News Related documents re_s_cdh_peaceful_protest_mars_2014_english.pdfPDF – 49.76 KB Organisation April 1, 2014 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Resolution recognizes role of journalists covering protests Reporters Without Borders hails the resolution on “the promotion and protection of human rights in the context of peaceful protests” that UN Human Rights Council adopted on 28 March. It recognizes and endorses the essential role journalists play in covering demonstrations and condemns the harassment and attacks they often suffer while so doing.“Journalists covering demonstrations were exposed to a dramatic increase in violence and intimidation in 2013,” said Lucie Morillon, head of research and advocacy at Reporters Without Borders. “We welcome the fact that the Council heeded our concerns. This resolution will be an important tool in our advocacy with the states concerned.“Procedures for monitoring states’ compliance must now be put in place to ensure that this resolution is implemented effectively. The UN’s existing mechanisms must also fully take on board the issue of media coverage of peaceful protests. It must now be incorporated into the relevant ‘special procedures,’ including all the reports, press releases and country visits of the special rapporteurs on freedom of expression and freedom of peaceful assembly and of association.”Morillon added: “The international community must go further in the protection of journalists. After taking a position on the issue of civilians and journalists in armed conflicts in 2006, the UN Security Council must now address the situation of journalists in unarmed conflicts, including protests, on the lines of the resolution on the safety of journalists that the General Assembly adopted in November 2013.” The Human Rights Council’s resolution starts by recognizing that “peaceful protests can make a positive contribution to the development, strengthening and effectiveness of democratic systems.” It goes on to urge states to “pay particular attention to the safety of journalists and media workers covering peaceful protests,” and, significantly, to take account of “their specific role, exposure and vulnerability.”This last phrase represents a major step forward inasmuch as it constitutes recognition by the Council of the special dangers that journalists face in demonstrations, as well as their special role.The resolution goes further than previously in its acknowledgement of the essential role of journalists.It recognizes “the important role played by national human rights institutions, civil society, including non-governmental organizations, journalists and other media workers, Internet users and human rights defenders, and other relevant stakeholders in documenting human rights violations or abuses committed in the context of peaceful protests.”Submitted by Costa Rica, Switzerland and Turkey, the resolution was the subject of laborious discussion during several Council sessions, with objections being raised about the obligation of states and protesters, the categories of persons to be protected, and the behaviour of police and protesters. But in the end there was a surprising consensus on the issue of journalists, their role and attacks against them.Account taken of RWB’s concernsThe resolution echoes the concerns that Reporters Without Borders had expressed in recent months, and especially in a written submission to the Council in February (see attached) about a deterioration in the situation of journalists at peaceful protests.In this submission, Reporters Without Borders stressed the crucial role that journalists play as information providers, witnesses and monitors at peaceful demonstrations, serving the public interest by providing coverage of these public, collective and political events.The submission said: “The media act as witnesses of the behaviour of the police during demonstrations. Journalists cover what happens, often while it is taking place, including any arrests, cases of violence or other abuses against demonstrators.”By covering demonstrations, the submission continued, the media are able to “inform the public that they have taken place, report the grievances or demands that were expressed, report the way that the authorities responded, and allow a debate to emerge about these protests, the demands, and so on.”Reporters Without Borders wrote in the submission that “any discussion about the promotion and protection of human rights in the context of peaceful protests, mentioned in the Human Rights Council’s Resolution 19/35, must take account of the status of journalists during these protests.” RWB finally urged states to “recognize media coverage as a contributing factor in the promotion and protection of human rights in the context of peaceful protests.”Growing problems for journalists covering protestsWith a total of 153 journalists injured and 39 arrests reported, media personnel were often the victims of the use of police violence against anti-government protests in Turkey from May to September 2013.At least 58 journalists were injured in Ukraine from the start of the Euromaidan protest movement on 23 November 2013 until the protests degenerated into clashes on 19 January. The police seemed to target them deliberately although most of them were wearing vests marked “press.”The toll from arbitrary behaviour by security forces at protests in Egypt has been particularly high, both during the Morsi period and since the army took power. A total of 65 journalists were attacked and 103 were arrested during protests in 2014, while another 11 have been attacked and 32 have been arrested since the start of 2014.Around 100 journalists have been the victims of violence in the wave of protests that began in Brazil in June 2013.As well as violence, journalists are often the victims of arbitrary arrest and prosecution or intimidatory measures, both in authoritarian countries and democracies. In Greece, for example, riot police have yet to adapt the methods they use against protests and continue to treat photographers, cameramen and soundmen as unwanted witnesses of their excesses. The neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn and radical anarchist groups also attack journalists at protests.Reporters Without Borders has also registered many cases of journalists being obstructed in order to prevent coverage, including international coverage, of protests. The obstruction has included denial of access to protests, denial of entry on arrival in a country, and confiscation of equipment.In China, Agence France-Presse reporters were briefly arrested and then turned back from the northwestern region of Xinjiang after clashes there on 26 June 2013 that were the deadliest since the 2009 riots. Those trying to cover protests in Bahrain are often the victims of arbitrary arrest, torture and mistreatment. The authorities tried to impose a news blackout on the protests that took place on 14 August 2013 by jailing netizens and turning back journalists and human rights defenders from other countries.

Its non-interest bearing deposits increased 13 percent, or $120.4 million, to $1,032.9 million, compared to $912.5 million as of September 30, 2015.The bank, founded in 1945, is an independent Southern California regional community bank, with assets of $3.5 billion, and headquartered in Pasadena with 17 business centers.“Community Bank continues to expand its core franchise, grow its deposit base, reduce concentrations and invest for the future,” said David R. Misch, Community Bank CEO. “We are very comfortable with the strategic possibilities the Bank has and our ability to successfully execute against them.”Among the other highlights of the company’s third quarter performance:• Core deposits represented 85% of total deposits, as of September 30, 2016, with the non-interest bearing component representing 45% of core deposits as compared to 39% in the prior year. (Community Bank defines core deposits as those deposits generated by its branch network including specialty areas and excludes deposits placed through the Treasury area.)• Total loans as of September 30, 2016 increased 8%, or $181.0 million, to $2.5 billion compared to $2.3 billion as of September 30, 2015.• The Bank’s reserve for loan losses as of September 30, 2016 was $35.8 million or 1.43% of total loans compared to $36.0 million or 1.55% of total loans as of September 30, 2015.

In addition to locking in favorable long-term rates, this strategy enabled the Bank to increase the granularity of its deposit portfolio.Community Bank also hired key relationship managers in its Specialty Deposits Group as well hiring a team in the San Gabriel Valley to expand the C.H. Cook brand. It was able to maintain a four-star rating or better (excellent/superior) with Bauer Financial for more than 77 consecutive quarters, while additionally maintaining a rated status with Findley Reports, Inc. over that same period.The Bank’s book value per common share has increased to $109 as of September 30, 2016 from $99 as of September 30, 2015.

Country star Clay Walker on stage

first_img Twitter Twitter What: Clay Walker in concert.When: 8 p.m. April 12.Where: Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.Tickets: Are $34 to $59 and available at Clay Walker is scheduled to perform April 12 at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center. Clay WalkerEveryday HealthIt’s been 25 years since country crooner Clay Walker first topped the charts with “What’s it to You” and “Live Until I Die.”The star has sold millions of records with four platinum and logged a lot of miles while touring the world.He brings that tour to West Texas with an 8 p.m. April 12 concert at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.Walker first topped the Billboard country singles chart in 1993 with “What’s It to You” and followed with his second consecutive No. 1 hit, “Live Until I Die.” Since then he’s placed 31 titles on Billboard’s singles chart including such additional chart-toppers as “Dreaming with my Eyes Open,” “If I Could Make Living,” “This Woman and This Man,” and “Rumor Has It.” (The latter two songs each spent two weeks at the summit.)He’s also enjoyed his share of success at the cash registers and has consistently been one of the busiest artists on the road. He’s scored four platinum-selling albums, signifying sales of a million units, and two gold albums, discs that sold more than 500,0000 units.After more than a decade in the national spotlight, Clay Walker, via his website, said he believes the best is yet to come. “I trust my gut more than ever now,” he says. “I definitely don’t feel like a rookie, but at the same time, I think the best years of my recording career are ahead of me. I believe if the good Lord wants it, who’s going to stop it?”Walker is also an advocate for multiple sclerosis patients – and is one himself.He told recently that he continues to manage his disease 20 years after he was first diagnosed.He said managing his symptoms of multiple sclerosis is a family affair.Walker, an award-winning singer with hits like “Rumor Has It” and “Fall,” was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1996. But with encouragement – and even a little nagging – from his wife and caregiver, Jessica, he manages to stay on top of the debilitating neurological condition.“Having a person beside you is very valuable psychologically,” Walker, 47, told “I don’t feel that I would be doing as well, had I not had the love, care, support and patience from someone like Jess.”Caregivers play an important role in helping patients manage multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that damages the fatty myelin sheaths surrounding the axons – or fibers – of brain and spinal cord cells.If You Go Facebook By admin – March 30, 2018 Home Local News Country star Clay Walker on stage Pinterest Pinterest WhatsApp OC employee of the year always learning Previous articleTEXAS VIEW: The nose knows: Allergy season arrives in full bloomNext articleDon’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: Permian High School ECISD undergoing ‘equity audit’ Facebook Local News Country star Clay Walker on stage WhatsApp Fruit Salad to Die ForCreamy Fruit SaladTexas Fried ChickenPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay last_img read more

The backlog emerged last July when it came to light that important reports had not been completed by clinicians.The Western Health Trust has refused to give details of the four people because of what it described as “patient confidentiality”, but is apologising for the backlog, which has now been cleared.A spokesperson says the delay in carrying out the written assessments was caused by staff and equipment shortages. It is not yet clear whether the delay in diagnosis contributed to the patient’s death.

A Community Development Block Grant provided funding for the infrastructure at the North Industrial Park including road and sewer projects. The total cost of the projects was $424,881 with the city’s match at $174,881.The city benefitted from ALDOT grant funding to construct a loop road at Southern Classic Foods. The road project was $472,295.The city completed a street resurfacing project that included several areas of the city. The $650,000-project was funded with special revenue funds. The city also began its $2.25 million clean water project that will be a complete overhaul of the sewer system including the pumping stations and the wastewater treatment facility.Sidewalks were paved on S.A. Graham Boulevard from Main Street to the Chevron Station on Highway 231 and along Galloway Road. Funding for the sidewalk project was provided by a Transportation Alternative Project grant that was approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation in July 2014. The bid was awarded to H&L Construction Company in Troy in the amount of $288,626.88. The city used the $500,000 from the TransLoad America bankruptcy settlement to further reduce the $1.2 million loan incurred by the purchase of 222 acres for the development of an industrial park. The balance of the loan is $355,000. The city’s four-year legal battle to prevent Brundidge Acquisitions and the Coffee County Commission from operating a Subtitle D landfill within the city limits of Brundidge came to an end when the Alabama Supreme Court refused to hear the city’s appeal in the ongoing legal battle over the public landfill.Coffee County Administrator Rod Morgan said two offers were made to the City of Brundidge but were rejected. One offer would have guaranteed a monthly royalty to the city of $10,000.Morgan said hopefully the decision by the Alabama Supreme Court would provide a basis for the city and county to establish a structure for the landfill’s operation that “will benefit us all.”The city’s Community Development Block Grant application for a splash pad park was denied. If funded, the project would have cost more than a half million dollars with the city’s cost at $375,565 including $117,000 in in-kind services. The grant would have provided $250,000 for a total cost of more than $600,000.The city council established a new rental policy for Brundidge Station, which houses its senior nutrition program.
