Journalist Rodrigo Fierro narrowly avoids prison

first_img News EcuadorAmericas Two months before Assange’s extradition hearing, RSF calls for his release on humanitarian grounds and for US Espionage Act charges to be dropped Organisation RSF_en On 29 October, Ecuador’s supreme court upheld a sentence of 30 days in prison for journalist Rodrigo Fierro for defaming former President Leonel Febres Cordero. As Fierro is more than 70 years old and has no previous convictions, the prison sentence will not however be executed. The fine was also reportedly reduced to a symbolic sum.————————————————————16.01.2004 – Court upholds a one-month prison sentence against journalist Rodrigo FierroReporters Without Borders is very concerned by the dismissal of the latest appeal of Rodrigo Fierro, of the daily El Comercio, sentenced on appeal in December 2003 to 30 days in prison.The Quito Superior Court confirmed the prison sentence against Fierro on 9 January. Former president León Febres-Cordero, a deputy in the right-wing Social-Christian Party (PSC), laid a complaint against Fierro over a 29 May 2003 article in which Fierro accused Febres-Cordero of putting the government “at the service of the plutocratic oligarchy that runs the country.”The upholding of this sentence shows a serious worsening of the state of press freedom in Ecuador, where no journalist had been sent to prison for a long time,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of Reporters Without Borders. “The Rodrigo Fierro case therefore sets a dangerous precedent,” he added, in a letter to the president of the Supreme Court, which is the final appeal court with authority to rule on the case.Ménard called on this court to respect the Declaration of Principles on Freedom of Expression in the Americas adopted by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and to quash the sentence. Article 11 says, “Laws that penalise offensive expressions directed at public officials restrict freedom of expression and the right to information”.The international press freedom organisation also pointed out that the UN Special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of freedom of opinion and expression had adopted a text in January 2000 that said imprisonment for peaceful expression of an opinion constituted a serious violation of human rights.The Quito Superior Court on 9 January 2004 confirmed the one-month sentence pronounced on appeal on 12 December 2003 against Rodrigo Fierro, columnist on the daily El Comercio. Ferrio was originally sentenced to six months in prison for defamation on 19 September 2003. The day after the 12 December ruling, he put in a fresh appeal based on Article 82 of the criminal code. under which those sentenced to jail terms of less than six months do not have to serve them, if like Ferrio, they have no previous convictions. In its reasons for the 12 January decision, the Superior Court explained that the journalist should have advanced this argument before being sentenced. The journalist’s lawyers put in a further appeal on 12 January.

Several sources said he was kidnapped yesterday by ISIS members near Idlib and then killed execution-style. The exact circumstances of his death are not yet known. An experienced cameraman, Joumaili often worked for Al-Jazeera International and Reuters. Aged 35, he was from the Iraqi city of Fallujah and had three children.He is the twenty-seventh professional journalist and eighth foreign journalist to be killed in Syria since the start of the conflict in March 2011. At least 91 Syrian citizen-journalists have also been killed in connection with the provision of news and information.As Reporters Without Borders said in the report “Journalism in Syria, impossible job,” published on 6 November, Syria is the world’s most dangerous country for journalists and ISIS now poses the biggest threat to both Syrian and foreign news providers there.

The memo seeking urgent hearing states that the stand of the state government is in violation of the fundamental rights of the workers protected under Articles 19 (1)(d) and Article 14 of the Constitution of India. The decision of the state government to cancel the trains was taken on Tuesday, late evening. While during the day the Karnataka High Court had said “The State Government must place on record in what manner they will facilitate the traveling of migrant workers outside the State and also a policy decision taken by the State Government as regards the cost of traveling. The State Government must also ensure that this process must be conducted smoothly by ensuring that the migrant workers who wish to move outside get proper assistance in terms of the procedure for Registration.” The memo relying on news reports states that stranded migrant workers across the state have expressed their desire to return home. Further, on May 5 members of the Union visited the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre and spoke to several of the workers. The workers expressed that they wished to return to their home states and had walked over 50 kms to arrive here. They said that they had no homes to return to in Bengaluru since they had not been able to pay their rent and they had not received any wages since March 24. They also said that through this period they were not provided food or ration properly and lived in extremely vulnerable conditions. The plea states “In view of the above and the grave consequences that this has on the migrant workers desirous to return to their home states, it is humbly prayed that this hon’ble court may be pleased to order this application be taken up for tomorrow (May 7), in the interest of justice and equity.”Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]      Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Acting ICE director slams New York City’s sanctuary city policy following murder of 92-year-old woman

first_imgScott Heins/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The acting director of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement slammed New York City’s leaders and their sanctuary city policies at a news conference Friday following the arrest of an undocumented immigrant in the death of a 92-year-old Queens woman.Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence said it was “unbelievable” he had to come to New York to “plead” for cooperation from the city’s authorities when it came to cases involving fugitive undocumented individuals. He blamed Mayor Bill de Blasio and the city’s sanctuary city policy for the murder of Maria Fuentes, who was allegedly assaulted physically and sexually by Reeaz Khan, a 21-year-old undocumented Guyanese national.Albence reiterated that federal authorities lodged a detainer against Khan after he stabbed his father with a broken coffee cup in November, but because the city didn’t turn him over to their custody, he was able to roam the streets and attack Fuentes on Jan. 6. She died from her wounds four days later.“I hold the policies of this city put in place by the mayor culpable for this crime,” Albence said.Khan was arrested on Jan. 11 and has been detained at Rikers Island on murder and attempted rape charges. ICE officials have issued another detainer against him. His attorney did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.The NYPD said it never received the detainer for Khan back in November.Under its rules, the NYPD honors federal detainers if “ICE presents a warrant issued by a federal judge establishing that there is probable cause to take the person into custody, and the person has been convicted of a ‘violent or serious crime’ within five years of the arrest or is a possible match on the terrorist watch list,” according to a spokesperson to the department.“The NYPD follows local law as it pertains to detainer requests,” the spokesperson said in a statement.Albence said the NYPD only complied with 10 out of the 7,526 detainers that ICE’s New York field office filed last year. He warned that more violent crimes would continue if the city didn’t comply with his agency.“These are preventable crimes people,” he said.In a statement, de Blasio spokeswoman Freddi Goldstein dismissed Albence’s complaints against the city’s handling of Fuentes’ death.“Fear hate and attempts to divide are signatures of the Trump administration, not New York City. We are the safest big city in America because of our policies, not in spite of them. We must band together as New Yorkers and reject these lies,” she said. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The best laid plans…

first_imgThe best laid plans…On 21 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today No matter how much effort you put into ensuring that jobs are well-plannedand designed, the significant spanners that are poor line managers can wreckeverything. So how do you go about minimising their impact? Scott Beagrieoffers practical tips for HR to ensure job responsibilities are clearlycommunicated down the lineStress in the workplace cannot be cured overnight. Its cause is oftendeep-rooted and the triggers are often hard to predict and identify. HR’s mainhope of dealing with it, and the destructive effect it has on the workplace, isto put in place a robust stress management infrastructure that incorporatesmeasures aimed at treating both the symptoms and root causes of the problem. For such a strategy to be successful, HR needs to ensure that key personnel,such as line managers, take their share of responsibility for tackling it.However, there is an inherent problem: poor line management is one of thebiggest causes of employee stress, whether through neglect of an individual, orthrough general poor communications with their teams. In Personnel Today’s 2003 report, UK Line Managers: Are they good enough?,67 per cent of HR professionals interviewed said that technical skills areconsidered more important than managerial skills within their organisations,and 40 per cent said that people management skills are not a major factor whenrecruiting line managers. Although it might feel as if you are on your own when it comes to puttingtogether a strategy, much of it is a reassuring return to HR basics, as can beseen from the practical steps outlined below. Set your stress indicators Introduce mechanisms for identifying stress, such as a stress audit, whichwill also highlight why it’s occurring in the first place. Exit interviews andmonitoring sickness absence are also invaluable, as they provide a reason forbroaching the subject with an individual, as well as creating a confidentialforum for discussing their problems. Results from employee surveys or regularchats with line managers (formal or casual) can also back up other data, andhelp pinpoint frontline problems. Design your strategy This can be broken down into several components: Job descriptions and job design Evaluate all job designs and job descriptions and ensure they areup-to-date, accurate and realistic – a major cause of stress is placingunreasonable or unrealistic demands on an employee. If rationalisation has occurred and resources have been cut, it may be thatan employee is now doing the job of one-and-a-half people, and no-one hasnoticed. Make sure staff are clear on their chain of command, and where their ownjurisdiction begins and ends. Job evaluation Establishing the relative worth and ‘size’ of jobs so that they can begraded within an organisation for the purposes of pay and reward is seen as areliable and unbiased way of setting pay scales. Being able to demonstrate thatthe process is transparent should eliminate disillusionment among staff –another agent of stress. Personal development plans Make full use of these as potential stressbusters. Next to the exit interview(when it’s too late for the employee anyway), it’s one of the few opportunitiesfor a no-holds barred discussion with an employee. Excessive work demands and continual deadlines are a major stress factor, sosetting attainable personal objectives should form the backbone of theexercise, and serve to make the employee feel encouraged about the year ahead. Improve communications If line managers are poor communicators, it is down to HR to improve theirskills through training. Encourage a consultative and communicative culturethroughout the organisation – staff who are kept in the dark, or go unheard,will inevitably feel undervalued, resulting in poor self-esteem. Introduceregular staff meetings and one-to-ones to give them feedback, and exploit the companyintranet to keep the workforce up-to-date. Appraise your company culture Are all your employees valued and given the support and training they needto do their jobs? The absence of a blame culture, combined with sharedownership of decisions and risks, will prevent them from feeling vulnerablewhen they slip up or when something goes wrong. Consider flexible working options Flexible working, or permitting certain individuals to work from home onagreed days, could be the difference between losing a stressed-out employeealtogether, or gaining an enhanced performance for two days of the week. Professional workplace support Introduce a mental health workplace policy which encompasses concerns suchas support, counselling, returning to work and substance abuse. Make staffaware of the policy, and that independent professional help is available tothem. Failure to do this could result in legal proceedings from thestress-affected employees – especially if related to workplace bullying orharassment. The existence of guidelines, backed up by a network of professionalservices, will help to prevent situations from getting out of hand. The role of management Line managers and senior managers both have a significant role to play, andHR needs to ensure any stress management strategy has their backing and thatthey appreciate where they fit in. Every policy and procedure put in place –from job descriptions to provision of professional counselling – must be seenthrough by the line manager. If their people management skills are deficient,remedial action must be taken. Performance development and coaching werehighlighted as problem areas for line managers in the UK Line Managers survey,and it is HR’s duty to confront their shortcomings. On the strength of this, there is also a compelling argument for sending allline managers on a stress management course. Impress upon senior management theimportance of communicating organisational change and the reasons for it. Anykind of reorganisation or restructuring breeds all kinds of insecurities, andworkers will operate on the basis of rumour if they don’t have the facts. Lead by example If you appear stressed and continually harassed, you are no good to thecompany. Make sure that your own work-life balance is in check and that yougive the impression of being on top of your job at all times. As a great dealof your time may be spent sorting out other people’s stress problems, it is agood idea to create your own social support system based on friends, family andmentors.
