It would cause great harm if the Ugandan courts were to use the sedition charge to hand down an excessively severe sentence. We also think it is not the Broadcasting Council’s role to say that a producer should be dismissed.”Among the programmes broadcast when KFM went back on the air yesterday was the ‘Andrew Mwenda Live’ discussion programme. It was the 10 August edition of this programme that led to the suspension of the station’s licence.The payment of 4.95 million shillings (about 2,200 euros) in damages and the dismissal of the producer of ‘Andrew Mwenda Live’ were the council’s conditions for allowing the station back on the air.Mwenda, who was arrested on 12 August and freed on bail on 15 August, faces a five-year prison sentence when he is tried on the sedition charge on 29 August. During his 10 August programme, Mwenda accused the Ugandan government of putting Garang in a poor-quality helicopter and described President Museveni as a coward and a failure. That same day, President Museveni had threatened to close down news media that continue to refer to terrorism and sabotage as the possible causes of Garang’s death. Organisation last_img read more

Pinki Pramanik gets bail after 25 days in custody

first_imgAsian Games gold medallist Pinki Pramanik was granted bail after 25 days by a West Bengal court on Tuesday on the ground that as neither male nor female organ was found during the medical tests, the athlete cannot rape.Pramanik was arrested on June 14 after she was accused of being a male by her 30-year-old live-in partner, who also alleged she was raped. “The district and sessions judge (North 24-Parganas) while granting bail to Pinki, based on her medical reports, has held that neither male nor female organ was found in her body. That means she is physically incapable of committing rape,” Pinki’s counsel Tuhin Roy said.Pinki was granted bail on a personal bond of Rs 5,000. “The women who had alleged that Pramanik had raped her, was in a live-in relationship with the athlete for nearly three years. It means the relationship was consensual by nature,” Roy said. Roy said that Pinki’s chromosome test report (karyotyping) determining her gender identity was not submitted before the court by the SSKM Hospital on Tuesday.last_img read more

The Latest Brazil causes roadblocks at UN climate talks

first_imgKATOWICE, Poland — The Latest on the U.N. climate talks in Poland (all times local):4:30 p.m.Attempts by developed nations at the U.N. climate talks in Poland to create watertight rules for international carbon emissions trading have prompted new, last-minute demands from Brazil.Officials say the closing meeting at the U.N. climate talks has been delayed until 6 p.m. (1700 GMT) Saturday, prompting a collective groan from delegates.Negotiators from almost 200 countries appeared close to clinching a deal Saturday on the rules that will govern the 2015 Paris climate accord, after two weeks of intense negotiations in Poland.The most recent draft agreement published by the Polish official chairing the meeting set out most of the terms under which countries must report their greenhouse gas emissions and efforts to cut them.Language on increasing efforts to curb climate change was postponed until a U.N. summit in New York in September.___9 a.m.A deal on the rules that govern the Paris climate accord appeared within grasp Saturday, as officials from almost 200 countries worked to bridge remaining differences after two weeks of U.N. talks in Poland.The 2015 Paris Agreement was a landmark moment in international diplomacy, bringing together governments with vastly different views to tackle the common threat of global warming. But while the accord set a headline target of keeping average global temperatures from rising by more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 Fahrenheit) — or 1.5 C (2.7 F) if possible — much of the fine print was left unfinished.The meeting in Poland’s southern city of Katowice was meant to finalize how countries report their emissions of greenhouses gases — a key factor in man-made climate change — and the efforts they’re taking to reduce them. Poor countries also wanted assurances on financial support to help them cut emissions, adapt to inevitable changes such as sea level rise and pay for damage that’s already happened.n?The Associated Presslast_img read more

European Parliament worried about civil freedoms in Algeria

first_imgBordeaux- The Parliament is worried a new law concerning the right of association, thinking it restricts civil liberties in the country. During a press conference on Monday, Antonio Panzeri, head of a European Parliament delegation from the European Parliament called on Algeria to take further measures to improve civil liberties. “The authorities must do more to freedom of association, business associations and gender equality,” he declared, referring to a new law which, according to the opposition, limits the activities of associations. After the parliamentary elections of May 2012, a mission of 150 EU observers had criticized the election process, which was marked by “weaknesses” and “shortcomings”. Among other things, the observers had troubles accessing the National Electoral file that contains “sensitive” data, according to the Algerian authorities.“It is in the interest of Algeria that elections are free. The electoral register is a critical parameter. We want to settle this issue before the presidential election of April 2014”, he insisted. Algeria often faces accusations of fraud since the introduction of multiparty politics in 1989. During their stay, the MEPs said they discussed with representatives of civil society about trade union rights, the new law on associations and the issue of missing persons. Mr Panzeri referred in particular to the fate of thousands of persons who went missing during the civil war of the 1990s.According to official numbers, 200,000 individuals are still missing. “It is necessary that the Algerian authorities strongly commit to finding these people,” he said. The EP delegation also called for the revision of the law on associations, adopted in late 2011 by the Algerian Parliament.This law, passed in the context of political reforms by President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to prevent any contagion of the Arab Spring, banned Algerian associations from forming partnerships with foreign NGOs. It strengthens the state hegemony over civil society, according to opposition and human rights activists.This warning comes only days after Algeria accused Morocco of ignoring Human Rights in the Western Sahara, an allegation the Kingdom has condemned, saying Algiers is only trying to hide domestic tensions.© Morocco World News.
