Dr Olav Fykse Tveit has expressed deep concern about the conflict in Gaza and Israel. In a recent statement he urged both sides to “cease hostilities” to ensure that “civilians will be protected”.News reports on Friday afternoon said some 20 people have been killed in Gaza and three in Israel because of the violence. Several hundred people, including women and children, have been injured, with most of the injuries in Gaza.Saying that the WCC is closely following the developments in Gaza and Israel, Tveit stated that “violence should stop immediately so that the lives of civilians, who are always the main victims, be spared.”He went on to say that “the loss of peoples’ precious lives in the eyes of God, on both sides, cannot be accepted as a price to be paid in the unresolved political problems and in political agendas.”“We call upon the UN Security Council and the Arab League to take immediate resolutions and measures to put an end to the escalation of violence, in the interest of both parties,” he added.In his statement, he also reiterated the WCC’s call for an end of the six-year blockade imposed on Gaza by Israel.“The WCC declares that the rocket attacks from Gaza into civilian communities in Israel, which are reprehensible and never justifiable, might also have very negative effects at a time when Palestinians are seeking international support of, and recognition by, the international community for a future viable and contiguous state,” concluded Tveit.

French news channel’s journalists on strike for editorial independence

first_img November 9, 2016 French news channel’s journalists on strike for editorial independence Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU June 2, 2021 Find out more Staff of French news channel iTele vote to renew their strike for another day on November 7, 2016 in front of the channel’s headquarters in Boulogne-Billancourt/AFP “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News Organisation FranceEurope – Central Asia Media independence Conflicts of interestEconomic pressure Help by sharing this information France’s political leaders and the agency that is supposed to guarantee the freedom of its broadcast media seem unable to respond to the deepening conflict between Vincent Bolloré, the billionaire owner of the French 24-hour TV news channel iTélé, and iTélé’s journalists, who are fighting for editorial independence. The channel’s journalists have been on strike for the past three weeks in what is now the second-longest stoppage in the broadcast sector since May 1968. It was triggered by the appointment of a presenter, Jean-Marc Morandini, who is the subject of a judicial investigation on suspicion of “aggravated corruption of a minor.” But the underlying cause is the large number of lay-offs in recent months and a series of conflicts between journalists and management. After overhauling almost the entire management of the Canal+ media group, of which iTélé is a component, Bolloré has been waging a battle with its editorial staff since the summer of 2015. Bolloré’s media and entertainment conglomerate Vivendi has been the Canal+ group’s sole owner since late 2013. After planning for a while to scrap Canal+’s very popular satirical puppet show “Les Guignols de l’Info,” Bolloré turned his attention to news and current affairs, censoring a “Special Investigation” report on French bank Crédit Mutuel in September 2015 and dropping the “Special Investigation” series altogether a few months later. Canal+’s daily news programmes and an irreverent highlights programme called “Le Zapping” were also soon dropped. The latest battleground has been the conflict between iTélé’s journalists and Serge Nedjar, a close associate of Bolloré who was appointed not only as iTélé’s CEO but also its news director. As well as Morandini’s departure, the strikers are demanding the appointment of a separate news director, the adoption of a code of ethics and, more broadly, the adoption of a “clear and precise” strategic and editorial project. The French government and political class are saying very little about the strike on the grounds that iTélé is privately owned, although the conflict could set a precedent leading to other attacks on media independence in France. Unions and staff are accusing iTélé of violating several obligations under its agreement with the Higher Council for Broadcasting (CSA) – which regulates the French broadcast media – above all by allowing its owners to meddle in editorial content and to mix news with entertainment. So far, the CSA has simply issued a warning that it would “pay close attention” to ensure there is “no confusion between news and entertainment” or, in other words, that iTélé continues to be a news channel serving “the viewer interest.” But the warning has had no effect and no follow-up. What are Bolloré’s intentions and what is his strategy with iTélé? Does he want to turn it into an “infotainment” channel that promotes the Vivendi group’s other activities? Or does he just want to get rid of it? In solidarity with iTélé’s journalists, RSF is inviting the general public to sign a petition for the creation of safeguards for the news channel’s editorial independence. Addressing a full meeting of iTélé’s journalistic staff on 4 November, RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said: “The battle you are waging is essential, it is the battle of the entire media profession. All over the world, oligarchs are buying up news media. And when it’s not a personal whim, their aim is to put these media in the service of their business interests.” France is ranked 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Seven years of impunity since leading radio journalist’s murder on 3 April 2000

first_img Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice RSF_en Help by sharing this information November 14, 2019 Find out more October 11, 2019 Find out more News On the seventh anniversary of radio Haïti Inter owner and manager Jean Dominique’s murder on 3 April 2000 in Port-au-Prince, Reporters Without Borders notes with regret that the investigation that was relaunched two years ago has still not yielded any results and impunity continues to prevail in this case.“It will clearly take time to put an end to violent crime and the rule of the gangs, one of which executed news photographer Jean-Rémy Badiau on 19 January, and to rebuild the Haitian judicial system,” the press freedom organisation said. “But there really appeared to be a new start to the Dominique investigation in 2006 with the election of President René Préval, a friend of victim, and the appointment of Claudy Gassant – the original investigating magistrate in the case – as Port-au-Prince chief prosecutor,” Reporters Without Borders added. “So why have none of the alleged killers, whose identity and whereabout are known, been arrested? The longer this goes on, the harder it will be to render justice.”The investigation into Dominique’s murder concluded on 21 March 2003, three years after he and Haïti Inter caretaker Jean-Claude Louissaint were gunned down in the radio station’s courtyard . It resulted in six men being charged and arrested: Dymsley “Ti Lou” Milien, Jeudi “Guimy” Jean-Daniel, Philippe Markington, Ralph Léger, Freud Junior Demarattes and Ralph Joseph. The charges against the last three were dropped on 4 August, after they appealed against the indictment.Former Port-au-Prince deputy mayor Harold Sévère and Ostide “Douze” Pétion were arrested on 14 March 2004 as the suspected instigators of the murder. Annette Auguste, who was already being held in connection with other criminal activity, was also accused of involvement on 10 March 2005. But none of these three has ever been interrogated. There has never been any attempt to verify presumed hit-man Ti Lou’s statement that he was paid 10,000 dollars to murder Dominique. And the death of two witnesses in suspicious circumstances has never been explained.Ti Lou, Guimy and Markington managed to escape during a prison mutiny in February 2005. Markington fled to Argentina, from where he contacted Reporters Without Borders to insist on his innocence. During a visit to Port-au-Prince in September 2005, a Reporters Without Borders delegation was told by several sources close to the Dominique case that Ti Lou and Guimy were circulating with complete impunity in the Port-au-Prince neighbourhood of Martissant, where they were running a gang.After a previous Reporters Without Borders visit to Port-au-Prince, the supreme court ordered the case reopened on 29 June 2004. But it took nearly a year for a new investigating judge to be appointed, on 3 April 2005, exactly five years after the murder. The new judge has not had access to the files and has not been given the necessary resources, so absolutely no progress has been made with the reopened investigation.

26 shot in 32 seconds: New details, videos released in Dayton mass shooting

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(DAYTON, Ohio) — New surveillance videos of the suspected gunman’s movements ahead of the Dayton, Ohio, mass shooting were released by authorities on Tuesday.Police on Tuesday also updated the victim total, correcting the number of those shot and injured to 17, revealing that 26 people were shot in the roughly 30-second attack. Nine were killed in the massacre.The shooting unfolded in a popular part of town that had a number of bars and restaurants. The gunfire started on Aug. 4 at 1:05 a.m. and lasted about 32 seconds, authorities said, until the suspect, 24-year-old Connor Betts, was killed by an officer in front of the Ned Peppers bar.It is not clear at this time if Betts’s sister, who was shot and killed, and Betts’s companion, who was injured, were intentional victims, Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said Tuesday.No one besides Betts has been found to be involved in the shooting, authorities said.Betts, who was familiar with the popular downtown Dayton area, went with his sister and companion to Blind Bobs that night, authorities said. He then headed to Ned Peppers at 12:13 a.m. and left that bar at 12:42 a.m., authorities said.Betts “then goes back to the parking lot where the vehicle is at and spends the next eight minutes gathering content out of the trunk,” authorities said at a news conference.Newly released video shows Betts leaving his car with a change of clothes and a heavy bag on his back.At 1:04 a.m., Betts emerged behind an alley and “that’s when the shooting begins,” authorities said.The new video also shows officers running towards the gunfire.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

USA: Navy Chief of Chaplains Visits Navy 311 Call Center

first_img USA: Navy Chief of Chaplains Visits Navy 311 Call Center Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: Navy Chief of Chaplains Visits Navy 311 Call Center View post tag: chief October 17, 2012 View post tag: center View post tag: 311 View post tag: call Share this articlecenter_img Navy Chief of Chaplains Rear Adm. Mark Tidd recently visited the Navy 311 Call Center located at Norfolk Ship Support Activity (NSSA) in Building LF-18 on Naval Station Norfolk.Navy 311 has been the front door for receiving and routing incoming calls and emails from Sailors, Marines, Soldiers, Coast Guardsmen, and families seeking assistance from a chaplain.Navy 311 supports several other programs in conjunction with ChaplainCare. Those programs are: Naval Expeditionary Combat Command, SPAWAR Theater Medical Information System, and Fleet Technical Assist request.The Call Center has been supporting the Navy since 1999. It began as the Navy Integrated Call Center, and then changed to the Global Distance Support Center in late 2004, to reflect the mission of Distance Support. In July 2012, it changed to Navy 311, in order to reflect a broader range of services to the Navy.The call center is much like a municipal 311 number the public can use to contact the city for assistance. New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Virginia Beach all have 311 services. “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know. You get it fixed faster if it goes to the right person the first time,” said Gregor McLeod, 311 call center program manager.The Navy Chaplain Corps maintains a website for service members and their families to utilize. The ChaplainCare program has one Chaplain who can either answer the request or knows the Chaplain who can provide support. Through this support, Navy 311 and ChaplainCare have been able to quickly get Chaplain Support to Sailors and Marines in need.“We’re delighted to partner with 311 Customer Care; a great system that has helped leverage and expand our reach,” said Tidd.McLeod and Tidd toured the call center, allowing him to see personnel at work. Tidd had the opportunity to speak to employees regarding their most memorable experiences with the ChaplainCare Line.“The ChaplainCare calls are the most memorable. You’re the one who takes care of people in need and it is very rewarding to hear their sighs of relief when you get them in contact with the right person,” said Patricia Marshall, 311 customer service representative.“Jerry Nance, 311 customer service representative, also found the ChaplainCare calls to be the most memorable and the most challenging. “Some people call crying and upset, and often it is overwhelming. One must be very well rounded to do this job,” said Nance.McLeod and Dr. Susan Reisinger, Navy 311 operations manager, shared with Tidd some ChaplainCare success stories. “A friend of a young Marine stationed in Japan received an e-mail which was unsettling. She sent the e-mail to ChaplainCare. She only knew the Marine’s name and location – Japan. Multiple Navy chaplains worked to identify this Marine and located him within 24 hours. Once located, it was determined the young Marine was suicidal and he was given immediate help,” said McLeod.“In the early days of the Iraq war, the father of a deployed Marine heard a news bulletin that his son’s unit had taken casualties. On a Sunday afternoon, the father called the Navy 311 to find out if next of kin had been notified yet. Within 45 minutes, ChaplainCare located the unit chaplain and the son was able to send an e-mail to his father that he was unharmed,” said Reisinger.When asked what he hoped Tidd would take from his visit, McLeod said, “An appreciation of the value of the ChaplainCare program, not just us answering the phones and e-mails but overall value to the Navy, and other services, of such a program in today’s environment.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff,October 17, 2012; Image: US Navy View post tag: visits View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Chaplains Training & Educationlast_img read more

USS Farragut Pays Visit to Montenegro

It really gave me a sense of serenity.”Farragut also sent several of their Sailors to observe a boarding exercise with Montenegrin sailors.“I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and training displayed by the Montenegrin navy,” said Farragut’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Glen B. Quast. “I look forward to conducting more joint operations in the future.”Farragut Sailors planted trees in two community engagement projects while in Bar, one event was held in a sporting complex and the other at a local elementary school. Both projects were joint efforts between the U.S. and Montenegrin navies.Over the three-day port visit, Sailors provided shipboard tours for the U.S. Ambassador to Montenegro, the Honorable Sue K. Brown and ambassadors from Hungary, Romania and Slovenia, as well as Montenegrin military and civilians. The tours provided visitors the opportunity to explore the ship with Sailors while learning about the U.S. Navy.Farragut, homeported out of Mayport, Fla., is on a scheduled deployment supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, March 19, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: Farragut View post tag: News by topic Share this articlelast_img read more
