State postal company refuses to deliver many independent newspapers next year

first_img BelarusEurope – Central Asia News Help by sharing this information November 28, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 State postal company refuses to deliver many independent newspapers next year June 2, 2021 Find out more RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown BelarusEurope – Central Asia May 27, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the removal of many independent newspapers from the list of publications to be distributed next year by the Belarusian state postal service, Belpochta, which has a monopoly of subscription press delivery and believes it can pick and choose what it delivers.The delivery ban will hit four national newspapers – Narodnaya Volya, Nasha Niva, Tovarich, Svobodnie Novosti Plus – and many regional ones, including Brestski Kurier, Vitebski Kurier, Borisovskie Novosti, Gazeta Slonimskaya, Intex-press, Lyahavitski Chas, Volnaye Hlybokaue, Hantsavitski Chas and Miastsovi Chas.“This is yet another bid by the Belarusian government to silence the independent press by depriving it of its means of existence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “As shown by the case of the newspaper Solidarnost, which stopped publishing at the end of 2005, severance of the postal delivery contract is often the prelude to closure.”The press freedom organisation added: “The national postal service ought to deliver all newspapers, regardless of their political position. As Belpochta is directly controlled by the government, its selective refusal is a clear attempt to deprive the Belarusian public of access to independent news and information.”The editors of five independent newspapers complained about this situation in an open letter to President Alexandre Lukashenko on 17 October. The information ministry responded that it did not have the right to meddle in the activities of independent business entities and force them to sign contracts.Belpochta began breaking off its delivery contracts with independent newspapers in January 2005. At the same time, private delivery companies had their licences withdrawn, which has made it virtually impossible for independent newspapers to be delivered to subscribers. Some have tried mailing their issues in envelopes, but this results in delays of two to three days. Others organise their own distribution in the capital, but cannot reach the rest of the country. Unable to be delivered, most privately-owned newspapers have had to cut back their print run. Some have stopped publishing in hard copy altogether and just operate a website.The distribution system dates back to the Soviet era. Two state companies have monopolies. Belsouzpechat delivers newspapers to news stands, while Belpochta delivers them to subscribers. The state’s control of these companies means the pro-government press gets preferential treatment while distribution of critical media can be blocked altogether.

Dhinakaran for the alleged offence under Section 499 of IPC, the Madras High Court recently observed that political party leaders should restrain themselves from making serious allegations or criticism against the constitutional functionaries. “Since leaders of political parties have huge followers and the same will have a serious impact on the followers also and the followers also blindly follow the path of their leaders”, added the Court. The Bench of Justice N. Sathish Kumar was hearing the quashing petition filed by Dhinakaran, who in 2018, allegedly gave a defamatory statement against the Hon’ble Chief Minister and Ministers of Government of Tamil Nadu. Significantly, the Court opined, “The leaders of political parties should show their statesmanship and quality and healthy politics rather than accusing others by using vituperated language in political platform.” Facts in brief On 27th February 2018, Dhinakaran alleged defamatory statement was telecast in leading Television Channels, like Jaya TV and Polimer TV and the same had come in leading dailies on the subsequent day i.e., on 28th February 2018. Hence, the respondent/complainant had given a complaint under Section 199(2) of Cr.P.C. against the petitioner for the alleged offence under Section 499 of IPC, which is punishable under Section 500 IPC. The said complaint was pending on the file of the Special Court No.II of Trial for Criminal Cases related to elected Members of Parliament and Members of Legislative Assembly of Tamil Nadu, Chennai, when Dhinakaran filed the Criminal Original Petition to quash the same. It was contended by Dhinakaran’s Counsel that the alleged statement (referring to CM Palanisamy and his Deputy O Panneerselvam), in no way amounted to defamation as against the Chief Minister and Ministers, Government of Tamil Nadu. It was further submitted that the alleged statement made by the petitioner was pertaining to the erection of a statue of the former Chief Minister Selvi J. Jayalalitha, which was organised by the ADMK Political Party. Thus, it was argued that the participation of Chief Minister or Ministers in respect of the said event could not be termed as the discharge of their public duties. Court’s observations On a perusal of the entire complaint, the Court found that the imputation alleged to have made by Dhinakaran was only an allegation made against the Ministers in general and was in no way connected with the discharge of their official functions. Significantly, the Court observed, “To take cognizance of the complaint under Section 199(2) of Cr.P.C., the so-called defamation should be directly attributed to a person in the discharge of his/her public functions and only in such circumstances, Sub Section 2 of Section 199 of the Code of Criminal Procedure will stand attracted.” Further, the Court opined that if the said imputation apparently made against the pubic functionaries, in the discharge of his/her public function, has no reasonable nexus with the discharge of public duties, the remedy available under Section 199 (6) of Cr.P.C. before the Magistrate by making a private complaint, and remedy under Section 199 (2) and 199 (4) would not be available. “Otherwise, if any criticism or defamation in nature of personal capacity and such defamation have no nexus with discharge of his/her official function of the State, the complaint cannot be made by a Public Prosecutor merely on the basis of Government Order”, added the Court. The Court further noted that when the allegations in the FIR and the materials collected by the prosecution does not disclose the commission of any offence and make out a case against the accused and the prosecution itself is instituted with an ulterior motive for wreaking vengeance, the Court can exercise power under Section 482 Cr.P.C. With these observations, the criminal proceedings were quashed. However, before parting with the Case, the Court said, “Irrespective of the political affiliation, when a person raised to the level of the leader of a political party should show utmost respect to the others in public life. Of course, every citizen of a democratic country has freedom of speech, but at the same time such criticism should not exceed affecting the sentiments of others also.” The Court also remarked that using scurrilous allegations, using harsh words, which is in the nature of serious criticism against a particular individual also to be avoided.

Climate change and the Antarctic marine ecosystem: an essay on management implications

first_imgIn this paper we review evidence for, and anticipated consequences of, climate change in Antarctic marine communities, examining the potential impacts on invertebrates and vertebrates alike and exploring plausible outcomes for species, with examples principally from the Antarctic literature. We suggest that industries with the greatest potential to aggravate climate change impacts on marine communities are marine capture fisheries. In the Southern Ocean, harvesting is governed under the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). CCAMLR espouses an ecological management framework and so has the capacity to mitigate harvesting impacts such that they do not worsen impacts from climate change. We discuss some of the implications of climate change and advocate that CCAMLR address certain key issues if it is to fulfil its international obligations. It will be essential for CCAMLR to determine relative risks (uncertainties), impacts and timescales, of various processes consequent on climate change. Such risk assessments should be feasible with current knowledge and should provide a focus for future work. We believe it will be important to prioritize issues that reduce impacts and uncertainties by the greatest degree, and propose that future plans should involve shared responsibility (e.g. with SCAR etc.) for each of the risks described.last_img read more

TIP-INS Jae Crowder had 18 points and Joe Ingles scored 16 as each spent time trying to frustrate Beal. Kyle Korver added 10 points off the bench, and Ricky Rubio had eight points and 10 assists. Asked if Dwight Howard was being shut down for this season, Brooks said: “Not officially.” MESSAGE RECEIVED Beal missed his first three shots and managed just five points in the first half. Beal had posted back-to-back 40-point games for the Wizards, who are clinging to the slimmest of playoff hopes. “The season is winding down. It’s going to be tough, but you never know,” Brooks said. “They did a good job when (Beal) was open, they sent another guy,” Wizards coach Scott Brooks said. “When he was driving the lane they had the big buy down there.

We had a couple breakdowns that weren’t acceptable, not just to me but to them, too. I thought Donovan and Rudy really needed to pick it up.” “They face guarded me the whole game,” Beal said. “You know I’m not going to score 40 points every night, everybody knows that. I’m not Superman.” Gobert, the reigning Western Conference Player of the Week, was perfect from the field (6 of 6) for Utah, which remained seventh in the West, one-half game behind San Antonio and Oklahoma City. Washington fell 4½ games behind eighth-place Miami in the Eastern Conference with 11 games remaining.
