The organisation is also concerned about a parliamentary committee’s bill that could require all online publications to register.While acknowledging that some of Klimau’s comments were extreme, Reporters Without Borders stresses its opposition to any use of imprisonment as a punishment for the expression of opinions or for press offences.”This is the first time that an opponent of the Belarusian government has been arrested for an article posted online,” the press freedom organisation said. “The charge of ‘inciting the regime’s overthrow’ is being used to silence a dissident. Klimau’s arrest highlights the almost total control exercised by the government over information in Belarus.” The organisation added: “We also fear that making websites register with the authorities will increase the pressure on independent online public publications, including blogs, and will encourage self-censorship.”Klimau has been charged under criminal code article 361 for the essay he posted on the website of the Union for a Civic Party on 25 January. Article 361 punishes any “appeal for subversion or change of the constitutional system of the Republic of Belarus, or for accomplishment of crimes against the state, public appeals for violent seizure of power or change of the constitutional system of the Republic of Belarus, or betrayal to state, or accomplishment of terrorist act or sabotage, or distribution of materials, which contain such appeals realized with mass media usage.”Klimau faces up to five years imprison. He has had several spells in prison in the past including a year and a half in 2005-2006 for organising a demonstration against the government.The Belarusian press freedom group BAJ held a news conference on 12 April to issue a warning about the parliamentary committee’s proposed law on Information, Information Technology and the Protection of Information, which proposes creating a system for registering all media, including online publications. It has not yet been made clear whether registration will be obligatory or just recommended. But such a law is very disturbing in a country such as Belarus, which is on the Reporters Without Borders list of “13 Internet Enemies.” Help by sharing this information A Minsk court upheld a two-year prison sentence for writer and political activist Andrei Klimau on 2 October, rejecting the appeal presented by his lawyer, Valyantsina Lyatun. Klimau was secretly convicted in August for an article posted online calling for the government’s overthrow. He has been held in a Minsk prison since March.His mother said he seemed depressed and had lost weight when she visited him in prison on 17 September.Klimau is the first government opponent in Belarus to be prosecuted and imprisoned because of an article posted on the Internet. He was previously imprisoned from 2000 to 2006 on charges of embezzlement and forgery. News Organisation RSF_en 11.06.2007 – Government holds opposition political activist and writer beyond legal limit Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about the continuing detention of opposition political activist and writer Andrei Klimau, who should have been released to await trial when the two-month limit on pre-trial detention expired on 3 June. He is being held in Minsk prison.“We call for his release and we are waiting for the authorities to explain his situation,” the press freedom organisation said. “The government’s refusal to make any comment at all about this case just confirms the arbitrary nature of his detention and the desire to silence those who criticise the regime.”Klimau was transferred to the prison’s hospital on 25 May with headaches and chest pains, but no information has been released about condition.He was arrested on 3 April on a charge of “inciting the government’s overthrow” and has been in pre-trial detention since then. 20.04.07 – Opposition activist arrested for article posted online Receive email alerts ———————————– Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown —————————————- May 27, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

BCEF donates $20,000 to BCSC for Flexible Spaces

first_imgBatesville, IN— A third year of fundraising for flexible learning spaces (FLS) in the local public schools has culminated in a $20,000 donation from the Batesville Community Education Foundation (BCEF) to the Batesville Community School Corporation (BCSC). In recognition of that financial commitment from BCEF, the John A. Hillenbrand Foundation, and the CREATE Foundation, as part of a larger project benefiting all the local schools, will also be donating a combination of $28,000 to this project, bringing the total donated to BCSC from the three foundations to $48,000, according to BCEF executive director Anne Wilson.This marks the third major donation from BCEF to BCSC for flexible learning spaces and brings the total donated by the education foundation itself to $70,000. Prior years’ funding from BCEF has been used for a complete transformation of one Batesville High School (BHS) English room in 2017 and, in 2018, three first-grade rooms were affected at Batesville Primary School (BPS) and a variety of pieces were placed in all third-grade classrooms at Batesville Intermediate School (BIS). Money from the 2019 donation is earmarked for pieces in all Batesville Middle School (BMS) sixth-grade classrooms ($15,000) and a donation toward components in the BIS Media Center ($5,000). In addition, the $28,000 from the John A. Hillenbrand Foundation and the CREATE Foundation will be divided among each of the four BCSC buildings, each receiving $7,000 for FLS renovations.“The willingness of BCEF to increase its funding to $20,000 so those dollars could be leveraged to help more students reflects the depth of commitment of this organization to education,” said Paul Ketcham, BCSC superintendent. “BCEF’s pledge indicated to the other two foundations that our school corporation had the backing to support another large-scale donation from them. We are blessed to live in a community where three organizations are willing to make significant financial contributions to help students.”“BCEF would like to thank the John A. Hillenbrand Foundation and the CREATE Foundation for working with our organization to expand the impact on students,” Wilson said. “These flexible space transformations are expensive, and with the three foundations collaborating like this, we are moving more quickly toward flexibility in every single classroom. That’s a phenomenal achievement.”last_img read more
