first_img Reporters Without Borders hails investigative journalist Xie Chaoping’s release on bail in Weinan (in Shaanxi province) on 17 September for lack of evidence. After being held for 29 days for writing a book about the Sanmenxia Dam entitled “The Great Migration,” he has been able to return to Beijing. March 12, 2021 Find out more News Help by sharing this information Much has been written about this dam, a major source of environmental damage and human suffering, but it seems the authorities do not welcome any investigative reporting on the subject by Chinese journalists. At least 35 journalists are currently detained in China. to go further News News Xie’s lawyer, Zhou Ze, said that Xie’s release was above all the result of public pressure. On 14 September, for example, around 60 academics posted a petition online urging the Communist Party Central Committee to order his release. Zhou said the police and prosecutors lack material evidence for a prosecution. He added that he hoped that, once back in Beijing, Xie would be granted a full release. China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Xie was questioned every day while held. On some days, the interrogations lasted for as much as seven hours. He also had to perform forced labour duties for five hours a day.—————————————————–Journalist arrested for writing book about the Sanmenxia dam7 September 2010China’s colossal Sanmenxia dam has a new victim – Xie Chaoping, a journalist who was illegally arrested without a warrant in the northeastern city of Weinan on 19 August after writing a book about the fate of those displaced by the dam. He is now reportedly being held by the Public Security Department in Beijing. Organisation ChinaAsia – Pacific Xie’s detention is completely illegal as neither his lawyer nor his family have been given a copy of the arrest warrant or any explanation for his arrest. According to Chinese penal procedure, they should have been notified within 48 hours. “Xie’s release is excellent news but now he must he now be quickly cleared of the charges of illegal commercial activity that the Weinan authorities brought against him,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call for the release of the printer who was also accused of illegal commercial activity for printing his book. It is still not known what has happened to him.” ChinaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Reporters Without Borders found it very encouraging to see how many Chinese journalists, academics, cartoonists and bloggers rallied to Xie’s defence, forcing the authorities to back down and release him on bail. News Reporters Without Borders calls on the Beijing authorities to release Xie Chaoping at once. It is deplorable that a journalist who tried to cover subject of general interest is being treated as if he were a criminal. Xie is accused of illegal commercial activity but his lawyer, Zhou Ze, reported in his blog on 30 August that the real reason for his arrest was his decision to self-publish 10,000 copies of his book, “The Great Migration,” about the fate of people who were displaced by the dam. Xie spent three years interviewing migrants and gathering information for the book.

The journalist however denied on leaving court that he had “apologised to anyone”.The trial of Rotimi Durojaiye, aeronautical correspondent on the privately-owned Daily Independent and Aruleba’s co-accused, had his case referred for hearing at the appeal court on 3 November.————————–29.06.2006 – Two journalists released on bail awaiting trial for “sedition”The federal high court in Abuja on 29 June 2006 ordered the release on bail of Rotimi Durojaiye, aeronautics correspondent of the privately-owned Daily Independent, and of Mike Gbenga Aruleba, presenter of a political programme on privately-owned Africa Independent Television (AIT).The trial of the two journalists on a charge of “sedition” under a law which several Nigerian jurists have called a “dead-letter” since 1983, has been fixed for 25 July.”We repeat our demand for the dropping of this case, which is not only illegal but groundless,” said Reporters Without Borders.———–27.06.2006 – Authorities arrest two leading journalists under obsolete lawReporters Without Borders today condemned the arbitrary arrests of Daily Independent reporter Rotimi Durojaiye and AIT television presenter Mike Gbenga Aruleba on 25 and 26 June on sedition charges under a law that was made obsolete by a 1983 appeal court ruling.“It is outrageous enough that the president’s office systematically uses the Nigerian intelligence services as a political police, but digging up an archaic law for use against journalists who just raised issues of public concern is the sneakiest kind of political dirty trick,” the press freedom organisation said.An article by Durojaiye headlined “Controversy Over Age, Cost of Presidential Jet” in the Daily Independent on 12 June raised questions about the manner in which a new plane had been acquired for President Olusegun Obasanjo.The story set off a storm in the Nigerian press and Aruleba referred to it the next day in his “Focus Nigeria” programme on AIT. State Security Services agents arrested him on 14 June because of his use in the programme of the pejorative word “tokunbo,” suggesting the supposedly new plane was in fact a second-hand one. He was released the following day on condition that he reported his movements to the authorities.The SSS arrested Durojaiye on 25 June and interrogated his editor, while Aruleba was re-arrested the next day after leaving Abuja for Lagos for work reasons. The two journalists were finally taken before a judge in Abuja yesterday and formally charged. A new hearing is scheduled for tomorrow.Nigerian legal experts say Durojaiye and Aruleba have been charged with sedition under a law that was rendered obsolete by an Enugu appeal court ruling in 1983. The privately-owned daily The Punch quoted lawyer Gani Fawehinmi as protesting angrily: “Sedition cannot be used against any Nigerian. It is a dead law.” West African Bar Association president Femi Falana asked in the same article: “What will the government gain from intimidating the press in a manner that is unconstitutional?”Nigeria’s privately-owned press thinks it incurred President Obasanjo’s wrath by supporting the opposition to a proposed constitutional amendment that would have let him run for a third term. The senate finally rejected the amendment in May, after weeks of stormy debate in the press and the national assembly. Reuters quoted AIT chairman Raymond Dokpesi as saying Aruleba was being targeted by the authorities because of the popularity of his programme, which played an important role in turning public opinion against the idea of a third term.

The satirical bi-monthly Sub-Version was recently seized and fouremployees from the paper were detained at Libreville airport. The NationalCommunications Council (Conseil national de la communication, CNC) also recently suspended a second paper, the bi-monthly La Sagaie.”We condemn these measures, which hinder the development of privately-ownedmedia in Gabon. Suspending a media outlet is a very serious penalty. We can onlyconclude that the authorities use this means of punishment to deprive citizensof access to independent or critical news sources,” said Reporters Without Borders Secretary-General Robert Ménard. In a letter to CNC Chairperson Pierre Marie Ndong, the organisation urged the council to reconsider its decisions and allow the media outlets to resume their activities.Border police at Libreville International Airport seized all copies ofSub-Version’s third issue on 17 September 2003. The paper is printed inCameroon. Four staff members who had come to pick up the copies of their paperwere also detained and questioned. They were released later in the afternoon.The authorities accuse the bi-monthly of inciting an “insurrection” amongcitizens and attempting to “destabilise republican institutions.”In addition, the bi-monthly La Sagaie learned of its suspension in a letter on23 September. The paper was banned indefinitely and accused of making a “call to tribalism” and “threatening state security.”Reporters Without Borders recalls that the privately-owned newspaper Misamu remains closed more than five months after the CNC decided to supended the publication indefinitely on 13 May.

first_imgSpc. Hosannah Vickery(WASHINGTON) — By the end of Monday there will be 5,200 active duty service members serving along the border in what is officially a support mission to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), but on the eve of the mid-term election President Trump continues to play the deployment as a campaign issue.“I noticed all that beautiful barbed wire going up today,” Trump said at a Montana campaign rally on Sunday. “Barbed wire used properly can be a beautiful sight.”The president was referring to active duty soldiers placing concertina wire near a Texas border crossing over the weekend. The move was in line with the support mission to Customs and Border Protection being provided by U.S. Northern Command.But on Monday Trump made it sound as if the active-duty troops assigned to Operation Faithful Patriot would play a more visible role.“Barbed wire looks like it’s going to be very effective, too, with soldiers standing in front of it,” Trump told a campaign rally in Cleveland.But Operation Faithful Patriot is intended to be a mission where the active duty troops are only to provide support for CBP since they are forbidden by federal law to carry out law enforcement duties.Gen. Joseph Dunford restated the mission’s intent in remarks at Duke University on Monday evening.“There is no plan for U.S. military forces to be involved in the actual mission of denying people entry to the United States,” said Dunford. “There is no plan for the soldiers to come in contact with immigrants or to reinforce the Department of Homeland Security as they are conducting their mission. We are providing enabling capability.”To that end, engineering and construction units will build vehicle barriers and fencing along the points of entry along the border, as well as build temporary housing for CBP personnel being sent to the border, Helicopter units are also being deployed to transport CBP personnel to hard to reach border areas, officials said.A Pentagon spokesman said Monday that the laying of concertina wire was in line with the mission to help CBP “plug gaps” at ports of entry along the border.“They tell us what points are vulnerable,” said Col. Rob Manning.President Trump last week also backtracked on comments that raised questions about when military forces might be authorized to shoot their weapons.“They want to throw rocks at our military, our military is going to fight back … we will consider that a firearm” he had said on Thursday.Trump changed his stance the following day.“They do that with us, they’re going to be arrested, there’s going to be problems. I didn’t say shoot. I didn’t say shoot. But they do that with us, they’re going to be arrested for a long time. We will arrest them,” he told reporters who had asked for clarification.The Pentagon acknowledges that military service members have the right of self-defense, but does not make public the standards for the use of force other than to say they are proportional.Col. Manning declined to discuss a hypothetical situation with reporters on Monday. However, he clarified that only military policemen would be armed along the border as they provide force protection to other military units.The Pentagon estimates that by the end of Monday there will be 5,200 active duty forces in Arizona, California and Texas with that number rising to more than 7,000 in coming days.The majority of the forces are currently in Texas where 2,600 service members have arrived over the last week, there are 1,100 service members in Arizona and California respectively.Those numbers will rise to more than 7,000 over coming days.Construction units have begun building temporary tent housing for military units at some of the large bases serving as staging areas.Last week, President Trump described “massive cities of tents” being built by the military that he said would house migrants seeking asylum. But military officials emphasized that the temporary tents were only to house additional CBP personnel being sent to the border.However, ABC News has learned that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had made an initial request to the Pentagon “to hold” migrants seized along the border in tent structures, according to a U.S. official.The initial DHS request was not accepted early on by the Pentagon and was not forwarded up the chain of command for approval.The official noted that the request was different than a previously approved DHS request from earlier this year to house migrant families further along in the immigration process, on military bases.Reuters was first to report that the Pentagon had balked at the initial request from the Department of Homeland Security.Asked about the Reuters report Manning declined to comment on internal deliberations between the Department of Defense “and our interagency partners”. Captain Bill Speaks, another Pentagon spokesman added, “we have not received a request from DHS to build facilities to house migrant families.”Trump said last week he plans to build tents to house migrants, who would be held in those facilities while the U.S. government weighs their asylum request.Manning also clarified that Military Police (MP’s) will be the only active duty forces to be armed during the operation. MP units have been assigned to the border mission to provide force protection to the units that will be providing logistical support to CBP.There is still no official cost estimate made public for the 45-day mission, but Manning said the Defense Department will “absorb” the costs of the operation.“The costs are being determined by our Comptroller and when we are in a position to provide them, we will do that,” said Manning.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

first_imgWoodland Park Police(WOODLAND PARK, Colo.) — A security video of a young Colorado mother shopping at a grocery store with her baby on Thanksgiving Day was released by police in hopes it will prompt new leads in her mysterious disappearance.The video released Tuesday night by Woodland Park, Colo., police shows Berreth, 29, entering a Safeway store near her home with her baby in a car seat. Berreth is seen getting a shopping cart before she goes out of the view of the camera.Police officials said the video was taken at 12:27 p.m. on Nov. 22 and is the last confirmed sighting of Berreth.While the footage does not show Berreth leaving, police said her fiancé, Patrick Frazee, the father of her child, told investigators he met Berreth later that day to pick up their daughter. Berreth and Frazee do not live together, her relatives said.Berreth, a flight instructor, hasn’t been seen since.Frazee has yet to publicly comment on Berreth’s disappearance. He declined to speak with an ABC News reporter on Tuesday when contacted at his home and also outside the office of an attorney. On both occasions, he had his daughter with him.Woodland Park Police Chief Miles De Young told reporters earlier this week that Frazee has been cooperating with investigators in the missing person case and that he is not a suspect.Berreth was reported missing on Dec. 2 by her mother, Cheryl Berreth.“This is completely out of character,” Cheryl Berreth said at a news conference on Monday. “Kelsey loves her dog, she loves her family and friends and she loves her job.”She said her daughter is “not the kind that runs off.”Further deepening the mystery is a ping from Berreth’s cellphone that was detected by police on Nov. 25 near Golding, Idaho, some 700 miles from Woodland Park. But police have found no other evidence of Berreth in Idaho, officials said.De Young said that on the same day Berreth’s cellphone pinged in Idaho, her employer, Doss Aviation, in Pueblo, Colo., received a text message presumably from Berreth stating that she would not be able to work the following week.Berreth’s worried mother said that “someone knows where she’s at” and directed a message to Berreth, asking her to return.“Kelsey, we just want you home,” Cheryl Berreth said. “Call us if you can and we won’t quit looking.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
