Kyle Eastmond had little choice but to plead guilty to this dangerous shot on Ian Madigan

first_imgWednesday Dec 5, 2018 Kyle Eastmond had little choice but to plead guilty to this dangerous shot on Ian Madigan Leicester Tigers centre Kyle Eastmond faced an independent disciplinary hearing last night after he was red carded for a dangerous tackle against Bristol Bears during Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership match at Ashton Gate.ADVERTISEMENTEastmond was charged with committing a dangerous tackle contrary to Law 9.13 when he tackled Bristol’s Ian Madigan with an unfortunate shoulder to the head.While Madigan appeared to be lowering his body position as he made the pass, Eastmond’s shoulder made contact with his head and face.Eastmond plead guilty to the charge and was suspended for four weeks by the independent disciplinary panel. He is free to play again on 1 January 2019.Independent panel chair John Brennan said the following of their decision: “The player accepted the charge and accepted through his representative that the entry point was mid-range due to there being direct contact to the head of the opponent.“The panel acknowledged his plea, his remorse for the incident and his apology but could not give the player full mitigation of 50% due to his having been sanctioned for dangerous tackling last season. As such, the entry point was reduced by two weeks rather than three.”Last season Eastmond was suspended for six weeks last season after two dangerous tackles in one match.ADVERTISEMENTWorcester Warriors fullback Chris Pennell has also been suspended, for two weeks.The Eastmond tackle is at 32 seconds in, but there is a nice Manu Tuilagi try just before that Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Call for release of magazine chief editor and blogger held for distributing aid to cyclone victims

first_img Zaw Thet Htwe (photo) was arrested by members of the military police on 13 June. The police searched his home in Rangoon. Like the comedian and blogger known as Zarganar, Zaw Thet Htwe had been helping to channel relief to the victims of the Cyclone Nargis. At least eight journalists and one blogger are currently in prison in Burma.

While editor of the sports magazine First Eleven Journal in 2003, he was arrested, tortured and sentenced to death, and then pardoned by the supreme court.“Zaw Thet Htwe is a respected journalist who was moved by the woes of his compatriots after the cyclone,” the two organisations said. “Banned by the military government’s censorship from writing openly about the tragedy in his magazine, he decided to act. We urge UN secretary-general Ban Ki-Moon to intercede with the Burmese authorities so that civilians distributing aid should no longer be treated as criminals, and so that the Burmese and international media should be allowed to operate freely in the cyclone-hit areas.”At least eight journalists and one blogger are currently in prison in Burma.Zaw Thet Htwe was arrested by members of the military police while with his seriously-ill mother in the central city of Minbu on 13 June. The police searched his home in Rangoon yesterday. His wife, fellow journalist Ma Khine Cho, told Democratic Voice of Burma, an exile radio station, that the police confiscated his mobile, phone, computer and various documents.Like the comedian and blogger known as Zarganar, Zaw Thet Htwe had been helping to channel relief to the victims of the Cyclone Nargis. Zarganar was arrested on 4 June after talking to the foreign news media about the slowness of the relief efforts being organised by the military government.A Rangoon-based journalist reported that the authorities have stepped up control of cameras in the delta region. Equipment has been seized from the home of private individuals for fear that it could be used to film or photograph victims.A military court sentenced Zaw Thet Htwe and eight other people for “high treason” on 28 November 2003. The real reason for Zaw Thet Htwe’s arrest was the success of his football magazine and its independent line. The supreme court commuted his sentence to three years in prison on 12 May 2004 and he was finally released from Insein prison in January 2005.Blogger Nay Phone Latt has meanwhile been transferred from cell No. 7 to cell No. 3 in Insein prison’s Building 1. During a recent interrogation session, the police threatened to bring other charges against him, in addition to the charge of possessing banned DVDs. Organisation last_img read more

Three journalists freed but problems persist in eastern DRC

first_img February 16, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts RSF_en February 18, 2021 Find out more Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders Organisation The Radio Liberté presenter Kashigwe Binjamin, known as Pilipili Kasai, who was arrested at his home on 13 May, was released on bail four days ago. Although he has issued an apology, he does not know whether legal proceedings brought by the military prosecutor have been dropped.Equipment confiscated from Radio Liberté, located in Butembo, in North Kivu province, was returned on the orders of the military prosecutor responsible for the case, Charles Kibenga, but whether the station resumes broadcasting is dependent on the mayor of Butembo, Théodore Sikuli Uvasaka, lifting a three-month closure order.The mayor told Reporters without Borders: “We are currently holding talks with observers and journalists and we shall assess whether or not to lift the temporary broadcasting ban on the station.” However, he remained vague on when this would take place.Reporters Without Borders said: “We welcome these two conciliatory gestures towards the media but Kashigwe Binjamin is still on probation. At the same time, we have reservations about the future of Radio Liberté, which remains under a three-month suspension.“Instead of resorting to bans and arrests, the political and military leadership in Butembo must deepen its political dialogue with journalists to seek a solution to this dangerous situation for press freedom in a region that has a fundamental need for news and information.” On 13 May, the mayor ordered the station’s closure for three months on the grounds that it was broadcasting news that could demoralize the armed forces. Around the same time, Binjamin was arrested at his home because of two interviews he carried out a week earlier in which two rebel military commanders announced the resumption of hostilities.Charges dropped against Kisangani News journalistsReporters Without Borders notes that Sébastien Mulamba and Mbuyi Mukadi, respectively news editor and publisher of Kisangani News, were released from custody on 23 May. The two journalists were accused of libel and spent two weeks in Kisangani prison. The member of parliament Alphonse Awenze, who is referred to in the disputed article, dropped his suit. “Naturally we are pleased that the two journalists have been released, but we must point out that they should not have spent a single day in prison,” the press freedom organization said.“Deprivation of liberty is a disproportionate and dangerous response to press offences and encourages intimidation of the media. We urge the authorities to decriminalize defamation and the two sides to employ self-regulation wherever possible.”—–2012.05.15 – Two dangerous weeks for media in eastern provincesReporters Without Borders is disturbed by a spate of freedom of information violations in the eastern provinces of North Kivu, South Kivu and Orientale in the past two weeks, including the forced closure of a radio station, arrests of 11 journalists (three of whom are still detained) and threats against two journalists.Officials hostile to media in North KivuRadio Liberté, a station located in Butembo, in North Kivu province, was shut down on 13 May on the mayor’s orders by members of the National Intelligence Agency (ANR), who arrested the nine journalists at the station when they arrived. Presenter Kashigwe Binjamin Pili Pili was arrested earlier the same day at his home.“We are shocked by Radio Liberté’s arbitrary closure although residents badly need the information it provides at a time of considerable violence,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By what right does a local government official usurp the power of the courts to close a radio station? Since when do members of the ANR break the law by acting on behalf of private and partisan interests?”Reporters Without Borders added: “This is an appalling abuse of power. We urge the authorities to release of the presenter, who is still held, and to allow the radio station to resume operating at once.”The raid on Radio Liberté, owned by wealthy opposition politician Jean-Pierre Bemba, began at around 7 a.m. when ANR members accompanied by police and soldiers stormed into the station, grabbed all the journalists present and took them to the ANR’s local headquarters in the Butembo district of Furu. The station’s transmitter, generator and mobile phones were confiscated.After learning about the raid from reports by other local media, Furu residents gathered outside ANR headquarters in the early afternoon to protest against the detention of the journalists, who were all finally released except the presenter, Binjamin, who is being held by the criminal investigation police.The raid was prompted by Binjamin’s telephone interviews during his morning “Animation Volcan” programme on 7 May with a rebel general identified as La Fontaine and a renegade army colonel identified as Kahasha who lead rebel forces fighting the regular army in the Lubero and Rutshuru regions south of Butembo.Butembo’s mayor reacted by issuing an order on 12 May closing the station for three months on the grounds that it was conducting “a campaign to denigrate the DRC government and demoralize loyalist groups, which constitutes an attack on state security.”Local sources told Reporters Without Borders the closure order may have come from North Kivu governor Julien Paluku, who is known for his hostility to the media and who, on 2 May, threatened Radio Okapi journalist Gisèle Kaj Kaung, accusing her of bias and fraternizing with the rebels for broadcasting interviews with residents and ANR members on 30 April indicating that mutinous soldiers controlled certain areas and people were fleeing towards the Rwandan border.“In a region that is prey to widespread violence and an armed rebellion, we urge the governor to act with restraint,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The responsibilities of his public office include a duty to protect media personnel who are just doing their job, not to expose individual journalists to even more danger by slandering them.”Journalist in Danger (JED), a Reporters Without Borders partner organization, said Governor Paluku’s comments about Kaung, coming in the current violent climate, were tantamount to “calling for her murder.” This is the second time Paluku has directly threatened her. In 2008, he accused her of being former rebel leader Laurent Nkunda’s concubine.Two journalists held on libel charge in Orientale provinceKisangani News editor Sébastien Mulamba and Mbuyi Mukadi, the newspaper’s publisher, were arrested by intelligence officials and police on 9 May in Kisangani, the capital of Orientale province, for allegedly libelling local parliamentary representative Alphonse Awenze in a 15 April article accusing him of having an affair with another man’s wife. After 48 hours at police headquarters, they were transferred to Kisangani’s main prison. If prosecutors decide to bring criminal libel charges against them, they could be facing a three-year jail sentence. Paradoxically, they had agreed prior to their arrest to publish Awenze’s response in the newspaper by 15 May, and had been on their way to meet him when they were arrested.“Without taking a position on the substance of the case, we deeply regret that these two journalists have been jailed in connection with their work,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We condemn their detention, for which the required legal and judicial procedures were not followed, and we call for their immediate release, so that they can prepare their defence at what we hope will be a fair trial.”Reporters Without Borders continues to campaign for the decriminalization of media offences in the DRC.Radio journalist ambushed by gunmen in South KivuDavid Mambo Munyaga, the manager of rural radio station Ondese FM in Kiliba, in South Kivu province, and fellow journalist Malega Muyuku were returning from a reporting trip on 30 April when they were ambushed by three masked gunmen but managed to escape on their motorcycle.Munyaga, who had already reported receiving telephone threats in connection with his reporting, filed a complaint about both the threats and the ambush in the hope that the authorities will identify those responsible. Fearing for his life, he is now in hiding.Reporters Without Borders condemns the dangerous climate prevailing in this region and urges the local authorities to do everything possible to put a quick end to the threats and attacks on journalists.Photo: Long life to press freedom in DCR (AFP) Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica News Newscenter_img May 30, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three journalists freed but problems persist in eastern DRC Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo to go further Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica February 24, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Newslast_img read more

ZimbabweAfrica Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentFreedom of expression March 3, 2017 Two journalists arrested over story about Mugabe’s health Receive email alertscenter_img November 27, 2020 Find out more News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Follow the news on Zimbabwe News Zimbabwean court must free imprisoned journalist who is unwell President Mugabe © Iomienews The arrests of editor Wisdom Mudzungairi, reporter Richard Chidza and legal officer Sifikile Thabete came one day after the newspaper ran a story about the reasons for President Mugabe’s trip to Singapore for a medical examination. The report quoted sources as saying it was not just because of his advanced age – he is 93 – but also because he has prostate cancer. Charges have also been brought against Alpha Media Holdings, the company that owns NewsDay, The Standard, The Independent and other newspapers. The journalists’ lawyer said they were being held at police headquarters and would appear in court tomorrow. They are facing a possible one-year jail sentence under Section 33 (2b) of the Criminal Law Codification and Reform Act, which concerns undermining or insulting the office of the president. The supreme court ruled in October 2013 that this article was unconstitutional because it violated freedom of expression. Since then it has not been used to convict anyone but it is still used as grounds for arrest. Human rights groups say the law is used solely as a way to harass journalists and gag freedom of expression. Zimbabwe is ranked 124th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index while Mugabe, its president since 1987, has been on RSF’s list of press freedom predators since 1987.

A Bill That Would Expedite Teaching Licenses For Out-Of-State Military Spouses

first_imgState Rep. Wendy McNamara Dear Friend,The House of Representatives recently approved a bill I am authoring that would expedite teaching licenses for out-of-state military spouses whose husbands or wives are assigned to a station in Indiana.Members of the military are often required to move multiple times during their years of service, and by expediting the licensing process, military families coming here will be able to continue earning a living.The current law allows the State Board of Education to expedite the issuance, renewal or reinstatement of teaching licenses for military spouses, but does not require it, delaying the process for military spouses to acquire teaching jobs once they move to Indiana.My proposal would help military families who relocate to Indiana and includes several provisions to assist in that transition.House Bill 1396 now goes to the Senate for consideration Please contact me with questions or input by calling 317­-232­-9816or emailing [email protected], FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
