Napolioni Nalaga’s two tries help Clermont to the Top 14 Final

first_imgMonday Jun 23, 2008 Napolioni Nalaga’s two tries help Clermont to the Top 14 Final Clermont have secured themselves another shot at the French Top 14 title after crushing Perpignan 21-7 in the first of the Semi-Finals this past weekend. The victory was in part due to the Fijian flyer Napolioni Nalaga, who scored two good tries on the day.The atmosphere at a boiling Stade Velodrome in Marseille was festive to say the least, as 55 000 colourful fans packed the stadium knowing that a place in the prestigious final was 80 minutes away for one of the two star teams.After 22 minutes though, when Nalaga scored his first, you could see the writing was on the wall as Clermont showed their dominance over their forward based opposition. Their multicultural backline – featuring an Australian, Italian, South African, Fijian and Frenchmen – shone as they went about the task of doing the business on Perpignan, the fourth place team who they were a whole 17 points ahead of on the log.Nalagas first try looked easy, as he simply brushed aside a feeble tackle from Nicolas Laharrague that, for a man of the Fijians strength and balance, had no chance of ever fazing him. The powerful hand-off allowed him to scoot down the line and dot down for his 17th try of the season.With the halftime score at 16-0, the game looked all but over, and when seven minutes after the break Nalaga was released again just inside his own half, the ominous reality for Perpignan was that another try was on the cards. A simple one on one with their replacement winger Christophe Manas was not enough to stop the big man Nalaga, as he brushed him aside and dived over, taking his tally for the season to 18 tries, easily the front runner in the Top 14.This boy is a star in the making, if not one already, and as weve said before, is one to watch and someone Clermont will do well to hang onto for the future.This victory means that they will now meet Toulouse in the final of the Top 14, after they themselves beat Stade Francais, a game that well try bring you the best bits from sometime this week.

Coup and ‘countercoup’ disrupt Turkish state

first_imgPeoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) held July 23 rally in Istanbul, saying ‘No to coups, democracy now.’Aug. 1 — Two weeks after the collapse of an attempted coup, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the ruling Development and Justice Party (AKP) have yet to stabilize the Turkish government and state.The AKP regime has concentrated its repression on those it considers members of the Hizmet organization, led by Fethullah Gülen, who Erdoğan blames for organizing the coup. Gülen has been living in exile in the United States since 1999. Before 2013 he and his group were allied with Erdoğan and the AKP.Neither the Erdoğan nor the Gülen forces represent the working class nor any real anti-imperialist position. They both stand for the continued oppression of the Kurdish community, who make up 18 percent of the 80 million people living in Turkey.On July 24, the CHP — a former ruling party representing the followers of Kemal Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey in the 1920s, and now second in parliamentary seats — held a demonstration in Istanbul’s Taksim Square of hundreds of thousands supporting the AKP against the coup makers. AKP speakers also participated. The labor union confederations DISK and KESK supported this action.Erdoğan met with and got support from the leaders of the CHP and also the MHP, the ultra-right party that is fourth strongest in Parliament. He has not sought a meeting with the social-democratic, pro-Kurdish HDP coalition, even though this party spoke against the coup.On July 23, the HDP held a demonstration in Sultangazi Park in Istanbul against the July 15 coup, but also against the “countercoup,” the repressive moves by the AKP ­government.On July 31, Erdoğan said he would have the legal authorities drop charges of “insulting the president” against 2,000 people, many of them journalists. Erdoğan’s government, in office for a decade, has increasingly repressed media coverage in the past few years.Erdoğan consolidates ­authority, weakens stateWhile it is impossible to rule out future attacks on the opposition parties, especially against the social-democratic HDP, or repression of the media, as of now the AKP has struck hardest against members of the military, police, government officials and educators.Since the coup failed, the Turkish regime has detained, removed or suspended “more than 60,000 people in the military, judiciary, civil service and schools” over suspected links with Gülen’s organization, according to a July 31 Reuter article. About 150 generals and admirals — 40 percent of the top officers — have been forced to accept dishonorable discharges, along with nearly 1,400 midlevel officers and nearly 9,000 ordinary soldiers.While the AKP and Erdoğan have been able to consolidate political authority and bolster executive power with a 90-day state of emergency declared in the wake of the coup, it is at the cost of disrupting the command structure of the army and the police.Turkey, a regional power across West and Central Asia, also has the second-largest army in NATO. The fate of Turkey’s army concerns the Western imperialists. The Pentagon, which has trained Turkish officers since the 1950s, depends on Turkey as a military ally against Russia and Iran that provides important bases, like the airbase at Incirlik, which enable the U.S. to intervene in the region.By all indications, the July 15 coup attempt, though a serious bid to seize power — hundreds died, thousands were wounded — was launched prematurely in anticipation of Erdoğan and the AKP carrying out a purge. This begs the question: Who within the military might have supported the coup had it been launched decisively and appeared to be winning?Voices close to Erdoğan blame U.S.The Turkish daily newspaper Yeni Şafak, which is reputedly close to the AKP, reported last week that retired U.S. General John F. Campbell, who commanded U.S. troops in Afghanistan, had over the past year funneled $2 million to Turkish generals to support a coup by the Gülen forces. Campbell and the U.S. government deny this.Former CIA officials urged the U.S. government to approve Gülen’s first application for residence, indicating a possible working relationship. It is standard for U.S. agencies to establish contacts throughout society in any important country, and in Turkey the U.S. trained much of the military.Turkish government spokespeople have demanded that the U.S. extradite Gülen back to Turkey. Their implicit message is that by deporting Gülen the U.S. can show good faith with the Turkish government. Otherwise, they say, we have a problem.Erdoğan’s criticism of the U.S., along with the criticism he faces from other NATO members in Europe, gives him the appearance of independence from imperialism. This may help him win support from the population, which is much more anti-imperialist than his regime.Erdoğan and the AKP have recently taken steps to win more room to maneuver Turkish foreign policy in defense of perceived Turkish national interests. This includes apologizing for shooting down a Russian plane on the Turkish-Syrian border. The Turkish ruling class is bound to world imperialism by economic, diplomatic and military ties, however, and Erdoğan’s rule won’t change this.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist’s trial again delayed, RSF calls for charges to be dropped

first_img Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Morocco’s judicial authorities to drop serious terrorism charges dating back to 2013 that are still pending against news website editor Ali Anouzla, who appeared in court today only to see the hearing postponed yet again. Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara Anouzla is facing up to 30 years in prison on charges of “material support for terrorism,” “justifying terrorism” and “incitement to commit acts of terrorism” in a September 2013 post on Lakome, the website of which he was then the editor.He spent five weeks in provisional detention before being released on bail on 25 October 2013, since when the case has neither been tried nor dropped. When he appeared in court in Rabat today, the hearing was again postponed, this time until february 22, 2018.”The Moroccan judicial system’s conspiracy against Ali Anouzla must stop,” said Yasmine Kacha, the head of RSF’s Tunis bureau. “We call for the withdrawal of the baseless charges against this journalist, who was one of RSF’s ‘information heroes’ in 2014. Use of the terrorism law to prosecute journalists violates Morocco’s constitution and its international obligations to protect the right to inform.”The grounds given by the authorities for the charges against Anouzla was the 2013 post’s inclusion of a link to an article on the website of the Spanish daily El País that, in turn, had a link to a video supposedly posted by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). But, according to the information obtained by RSF, the real reason for the decision to arrest Anouzla was other revelations in Lakome that had irritated the authorities.Morocco is ranked 133th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Condoleezza Rice urged to address human rights issues during her trip to China

first_img News China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures News Receive email alerts Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News June 29, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Condoleezza Rice urged to address human rights issues during her trip to China June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific A coalition of NGOs, including International Campaign for Tibet, Reporters Without Borders, Human Rights Watch, Freedom House, Human Rights in China and Human Rights First urged today Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to raise the issue of human rights violations during her visit to China, as part of a trip to Asia in advance of the G-8 Summit on July 7-9.“With the eyes of the world on China’s behavior as it prepares for the Olympic Games, the United States and its partners have considerable leverage to wield,” the organizations said.In the letter, the organizations recognized President Bush’s reference to China and human rights and support for a dialogue with the Dalai Lama’s representatives during the 2008 U.S.-EU Summit Declaration.“A unified and sustained approach offers the best opportunity at this critical moment to leverage improvements in China’s poor human rights record” they said.More specifically, the letter recommended President Bush to insist in encouraging China to live up to its commitments with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and to guarantee that there will not be any restrictions on the media prior and during the Olympics Games.The organizations also noted that on June 2, the Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee issued a list of restrictions to foreigners, including reporters, and briefly listed other issues with censorship.“In the most recent example, human rights activist Huang Qi, founder of the human rights website 64Tianwang, was arrested in Chengdu, the capital of the earthquake-hit province of Sichuan, on June 10. He is accused of ‘illegal possession of state secrets.’”The letter also mentioned that Tibet, including Sichuan province, has been limited to a few regulated visits by the media, therefore, preventing U.S. officials and the rest of the world from seeing clearly the government’s crackdown. On June 26, the Chinese government authorized journalists to enter the Tibet Autonomous Region, yet they are required to obtain a special permit. “China committed to theInternational Olympic Committee to ‘give the media complete freedom to report when they come to China.’ Simply re-opening the area to foreign tour groups (effective June 25) and allowing journalists to once again apply for permits is not enough to guarantee media access and freedom to report.”The organizations also stated that the results of the “Human Rights Dialogue” between China and the U.S. were disappointing since it did not guaranteed any concrete improvement. “In fact, the decision, announced days after the meeting, to disbar two lawyers who had sought to represent detained Tibetans signaled that the Chinese government’s behavior may be headed in the opposite direction. Moreover, Chinese authorities acted to suppress dissidents during Assistant Secretary Kramer’s visit or prevent appointments with him.”Finally, the organizations expressed disappointment and frustration towards an administration that apparently seeks a dialogue to improve human rights, but it does not seek for more feasible advances in this matter.“We believe that the lack of visible progress from both the U.S. and EU human rights dialogues, positive progress requires the administration to redouble pressure at the highest possible levels.”The organizations also urged Rice to press on tangible results for human rights improvements in China not only prior and during the Olympic Games, but also afterwards.

Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh on Friday issued notice in a petition filed by an advocate seeking action against major social media platforms for revealing the identity of Hathras Rape victim and similar victims in public domain thereby violating her right to privacy. The social media platforms include Twitter, Youtube, Buzzfeed, News 18, Facebook etc. The petitioner seeks appropriate directions on State of NCT of Delhi as being the law enforcement agency which has the duty to take action to stop and ensure that take down the content posted by these respondents wherein they had published details of the victim on public platform. BACKGROUND OF THE PETITION The petitioner, an advocate by profession, has approached the High Court under Sec. 226 of the Constitution seeking appropriate directions against 15 major social media platforms including Twitter, Youtube, Facebook etc for revealing the identity of the Hathras gang-rape victim that took place on 14th September 2020. According to the petitioner, these respondents have published information relating to the victim disclosing her identify in a public domain which is accessible for people at large. This action, according to the petitioner, is actionable under Sec. 228A of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 which provides for imprisonment for anyone who publishes the name or any other matter which reveals the identity in such cases. The petition also makes State of NCT of Delhi as a respondent as no action was taken to restrict or stop these social media platforms as the State is the law enforcement agency empowered to take notice of such offences. The petition puts reliance of the judgment of Nipun Saxena v. Union of India W.P. CIVILNo. 565/2020 wherein it was held that any person who makes known the name and identity of a person who is an alleged victim of an offence falling under Sections 376, 376A, 376AB, 376B, 376C, 376D, 376DA, 376DB or 376E of the Indian Penal Code commits a criminal offence and shall be punishable for a term which may extend to two years. The judgment also provides that in cases where the victim is dead or of unsound mind the name of the victim or her identity should not be disclosed even under the authorization of the next of the kin, unless circumstances justifying the disclosure of her identity exist, which shall be decided by the competent authority, which at present is the Sessions Judge. The 15 respondents as listed by the petition are as follows: TwitterIDivaThe TelegraphJanbharattimes MediaNews 18Dainik JagranUnited News of IndiaBansal NewsDalit CameraBuzzfeedYoutubeFacebook India Online Services Pvt. Ltd.The Millennium PostWikifeedThe Citizen “On careful perusal of circumstances prevailing it has been found out that the Media Houses and other forms of News publications and information sharing portals, websites have been found contravening such laws that violate the privacy of the victim especially in cases relating to Sections pertaining to trial of Rape and similar cases. It is also observed that such actions of the Respondents have resulted in such violative actions to be practiced by the masses and general public at large, it can be seen that the Media Houses and similar portals play an impressionable role on the citizens receiving such violative information.” The petition states. PRAYER OF THE PETITIONER The petitioner seeks the following relief from the High Court: That the State of NCT of Delhi be directed to register FIR against the violation of Right to Privacy of victim as the respondents have committed an offence under Sec. 228A of IPC.That State of NCT of Delhi must take appropriate action so that the respondents may take down or withdraw any material, news article, social media post or any such information published by them with reference to the details of the identity of the victim in the particular case or similar cases.That the respondents social media platforms or organizations or individuals dealing with broadcasting are directed to broadcast correct legal provisions including sec. 228A by methods of short videos, clips, flashers, posts, stories or similar means so that the disclosure of identity of victim is not done.That certain celebrities who have also shared the post shared by Respondent Twitter be directed to share their videos stating the legal provisions to spread awareness among the citizens and provide correct position of law of such actions amounting to offence and their consequences be shared and be broadcasted through well sought mediums.That State of NCT of Delhi be directed to organize Legal Awareness Camps, Legal Literacy Camps, Lectures, Interactive Workshops, Newspaper Advertisements, hoardings to make people aware about the said legal provision.

Texas judge releases group of juvenile defendants after losing election: Reports

first_imgglenndevlin.com(HOUSTON) — A Texas judge known for sending kids to juvenile detention released a group of juvenile defendants who appeared before him Wednesday, in an unusual move that came less than a day after losing his bid for re-election, according to local media reports. At least four of the minors faced serious charges.Before Harris County Juvenile Court Judge Glenn Devlin released seven defendants — accounting for nearly all of the kids who appeared in front of him the morning after Election Day — he asked if they planned to kill anyone before he released them, the Houston Chronicle reported.Democrats swept the benches the night before in 59 local Texas courts, according to the Chronicle. Devlin, a Republican, was among those ousted.Harris County public defender Steven Halpert, who was in court when the string of releases occurred, told the newspaper that Devlin was “releasing everybody.”“Apparently he was saying that’s what the voters wanted,” Halpert said.Devlin did not respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Four of the children released were facing aggravated robbery charges, the Chronicle reported.In a response to questions about the judge’s rulings, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement to ABC News that Devlin’s actions could “endanger the public.”“We oppose the wholesale release of violent offenders at any age,” Ogg said.Juveniles in Texas who are waiting in local detention centers before their cases are resolved are entitled to detention hearings every 10 working days to decide whether they can remain behind bars or be safely released under supervision, according to the Chronicle.Devlin was elected to Houston’s 313th district court in 2010, according to the court’s website.He is one of two judges who contributed heavily to doubling the number of Harris County children sent to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department in recent years, due to his track record of favoring incarceration, the Chronicle reported. The number of kids sent to state juvenile centers dropped in counties elsewhere in Texas.Devlin has released juveniles facing serious charges in the past as long as they have behaved in detention and will have adequate adult supervision upon their release, Halpert said.“But nobody has seen this before,” he added.Only one of the juveniles Halpert saw in court was detained, he said. The rest of the cases were reset for Jan. 4, after Devlin’s replacement, Democrat Natalia Oaks, takes the bench.Harris County Chief Public Defender Alex Bunin told the newspaper that he could not wrap his “arms around what [Devlin’s] actually doing,” adding, “It’s a huge change and the only thing that has happened is that he was not elected so I don’t know what to attribute it to,” Bunin said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
