Six years after Guantanamo was turned into a prison camp, Reporters Without Borders calls again for its closure and for Al-Jazeera cameraman’s release

first_img United StatesAmericas News June 3, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en Receive email alerts On the eve of the sixth anniversary of the arrival of the first detainees at the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay in eastern Cuba, Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its call for the camp’s closure and the release of Sami Al-Haj, a Sudanese cameraman with the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera who has been held there without charge since June 2002.Several hundred persons captured by the US army during “Operation Enduring Freedom” in Afghanistan were transferred to Guantanamo Bay on 11 January 2002, thereby turning the naval base into a prison camp where at one point 770 people were held without any of the legal guarantees envisaged by the US constitution or by the Geneva Conventions on prisoners of war.Al-Haj is one of the roughly 300 people still being held at the camp, which Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard visited last week without being allowed to see him. Ménard’s visit will be the subject of an article in the next issue of the French magazine Médias.“We appeal for Al-Haj’s release or his transfer to his home country,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Negotiations on his transfer are currently under way. We went to Guantanamo in the hope of meeting him but we not allowed to do this. However, we were able to visit the detention centres inside the camp and to talk to guards, hospital staff, military officers in charge of the Annual Administrative Reviews and Rear Admiral Mark H. Buzby, the head of the Guantanamo Joint Task Force.“Guantanamo is a legal and humanitarian scandal that has now dragged on for six years. What has been achieved? In the absence of charges, 500 of its detainees have been removed and in most cases sent back to their country of origin. It is hard to understand why around 300 are still being held there, especially as the authorities plan to try only 60-80 of them. The US supreme court rightly ruled on 30 June 2006 that the special military tribunals set up to try these “enemy combatants” were unconstitutional, and the US senate judiciary committee said on 7 June 2007 that they should be restored their right to habeas corpus.“This is not enough,” Reporters Without Borders added. “The winner of the 7 November presidential election, who will take office in January 2009, must put an end to a situation that is humanely intolerable and legally untenable. We call on all the candidates competing for their party’s nomination in the primaries to undertake to close Guantanamo.”Arrested by the Pakistani army on the Afghan border in December 2001, Al-Haj was handed over to the US military a month later and was transferred to Guantanamo on 13 June 2002. The US military claimed that he secretly interviewed Osama Bin Laden, trafficked in arms for Al-Qaeda and ran an Islamist website but no evidence was ever produced to support these allegations and he was never formally charged.Regularly tortured and interrogated about 200 times by his guards, Al-Haj began a hunger strike on 7 January 2007 to protest against his detention and to demand respect for his rights. In reprisal, he was force-fed several times. His lawyer, Clive Stafford-Smith, who visited him in July, said he had lost 18 kilos and had serious intestinal problems. He also has paranoia attacks and has more and more difficulty in communicating normally.Two of the nine Sudanese prisoners in Guantanamo were released last month. In a recent memo to the Sudanese government, the US authorities said they would return Al-Haj to Sudan only if he were banned from leaving the country and were banned from working as journalist.The CIA announced on 15 December that it destroyed videos of detainees being interrogated in Guantanamo and in its secret prisons, despite a court order to preserve them. A criminal investigation into their destruction began on 2 January, but federal judge Henry H. Kennedy said a week later that he would not insist on questioning José Rodríguez, the former CIA officer who reportedly ordered their destruction. In response to congressional protests, Kennedy said he would await the results of a justice department internal probe. The New York Times reported last month that four White House legal advisers endorsed their destruction.Reporters Without Borders established a system of sponsorship 18 years ago in which international media are encouraged to adopt imprisoned journalists. More than 200 news organisations, journalists’ associations, press clubs and other entities throughout the world are currently supporting journalists by regularly calling on the authorities to release them and by publicising their cases. Al Haj has been adopted by four Spanish media (La Sexta, IPS-Comunica, La Voz del Occidente, and the Colexio de Xornalistas de Galicia) and six Canadian media (Corriere Canadese, Atlas media, Magazine de Saint-Lambert, Mouton Noir, CIBL and Radio Canada Sudbury).

Reporter shot dead while covering protest in Abuja

first_img News NigeriaAfrica Protecting journalists ImpunityViolence Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria News RSF_en Nigerian police officers patrol in the streets of Abuja during clashes with members of the shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) on July 22, 2019. Kola SULAIMON / AFP The media fatality was Precious Owolabi, a trainee journalist under National Youth Service Corps with Channels TV, one of Nigeria’s most popular TV broadcasters. He was hit by a bullet while covering the protest and died later in hospital. Channels TV described him as a “young and promising” reporter.The protest was organized by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, a Shia group that has been staging almost daily demonstrations in the capital to press demands for the release of its detained leader. The police opened fire with live rounds after clashing with the demonstrators.President Muhammadu Buhari sent messages of condolences today to Owolabi’s family and to the management and staff of Channels TV, saluting the broadcaster’s commitment to “their professional callings”.“Firing on a journalist while he is reporting is a very serious act and the president’s comforting words will not suffice to render justice to this young reporter gunned down in the course of his work,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We call for a rapid investigation to identify the person who fired the shot. Impunity must not prevail. Until yesterday, no journalist had been killed in Nigeria since 2012.”Nigeria is ranked 120th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

The Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Govind Mathur and Justice Saumitra Dayal Singh has now directed the Senior Superintendent of Police, Varanasi to remain personally present in the Court on the next date of hearing, i.e. September 3, 2020. Last week, the High Court had taken cognizance of a letter petition addressed to the Chief Justice by Advocate Saurabh Tiwari, an alumnus of the Banaras Hindu University, in relation to the missing student Shiv Kumar Trivedi, who allegedly disappeared from the Police custody. As per the facts averred in the letter, Trivedi was picked up by certain police personnels from the M.P. Theatre ground, BHU on February 12 and was taken to the Police Station Lanka, District Varanasi. Ever since, there has been no sign of the student. His father made several complaints to senior police officials of Varansai, registered IGRS complaints, etc. but in vain. Accordingly, the Court had asked the Government Advocate to file a complete statement of facts in a form of short counter affidavit. In compliance of this direction, the Circle Officer, Varanasi had filed an affidavit disclosing the steps taken by the police. However, dissatisfied with the averments contained therein, the Court remarked, “affidavit though refers to certain steps said to have been taken by the police, it does not inspire adequate confidence. Nothing has been stated in the affidavit as to what happened on 12th February, 2020 that demanded presence of the missing boy at the police station.” The Court was also informed that though Trivedi was brought to the Police Station on February 12, he ran away on the next day and no details in relation to him were available yet. It was further submitted that a mentally retarded person, apprehended to be Shiv Kumar Trivedi was recently brought by the police and therefore, DNA and biometric tests are proposed to determine his true identity. At this juncture, the Division Bench rapped the Police authorities for their failure to give a complete statement of facts that led to disappearance of the student. It said, “We fail to understand why the police authorities instead of placing on record all the details relating to the facts that happened on after 12th February, 2020 and more specifically after the boy ran away from the police station, which facts must have been recorded in the general diary, have filed a vague affidavit.” It directed the Senior Superintendent of Police, Varanasi to file his personal affidavit about all the facts relating to missing of Shiv Kumar Trivedi and subsequent steps taken by the police. The Court also sought his personal attendance on next date of listing. Case Details: Case Title: Saurabh Tiwari v.

The bench however granted liberty to the State Government to frame appropriate new Excise Policy for the year 2021-22 in accordance with the provisions of the Act and Rules and other landmark judgments of the Apex Court. FACTUAL BACKGROUND AND CHALLENGE Various writ petitions were filed in the High Court challenging a common judgment passed by a single judge of the High Court. The case arises out of the trade in liquor business with the grievance of non transparency in the process of renewal of liquor vend licenses in the State. As a general rule, these allotments can only be made on the recommendation of State Finance Minister but the present licenses granted in the State liquor vends are mostly facilitated without any formal advertisement to benefit the favourites. Under the Rule 30(8) of Jammu and Kashmir Liquor License and Sales Rules, 1984 the competent authority grants a temporary license for a period of 4 months after a process of draw of lots is successfully conducted. The temporary license becomes permanent after the allottee fulfils the formalities, failure to which leads to expiry of the said license. Various complaints were made to the State Government indicating manipulation in the draw of lots process which was referred to the State Vigilance Organization. The Organization referred the matter to CBI for an investigation of the devise which was used in the process. The government, on a report by CBI, ordered cancellation of 57 temporary licenses granted to the allottees. Show cause notices were issued to these allottees, also the appellants in the case. When the matter reached the High Court, a single bench held that the entire process of issuance of show cause notices was meaningless. The grievance of the appellants is that the issue of validity of such notices were not dealt by the single judge. Another issue raised by appellants is on the non application of mind by the Government in framing the State Excise Policies which provides that the grant or renewal of licenses for a period of 5 years whereas the Rules suggests the time period to be 1 year only. ISSUES OF THE CASE Whether Right to Trade in Liquor a Fundamental Right?Challenge to the relevant provisions of Jammu and Kashmir Excise Act, svt. 1958 (1901 AD) and Jammu and Kashmir Liquor License and Sales Rules, 1984.Challenge to Excise Policies for the year 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-2020.Whether Renewal of Licenses for trade in liquor a fundamental right? I. No Fundamental Right to Trade in Liquor The bench while referring to a bunch of judgments of the Apex Court reiterated that there is no fundamental right of a person to do trade or business in intoxicants or liquor. The bench relied on the judgments of Har Shanker & Ors. v. Deputy Excise Commissioner & Ors. AIR 1975 SCC 1121; State of M.P. & Ors. v. Nandlal Jaiswal & Ors. 1987 AIR 251 and M/s Khoday Distilleries Ltd. & Ors. v. State of Karnataka & Ors. 1951 (1) SCC 574 held that No one can claim as against the State the right to carry on trade or business in liquor and the State cannot be compelled to part with its exclusive right or privilege of manufacturing and selling liquor. II. Challenge to the relevant provisions of Excise Act and Rules The Bench adjudicated upon 5 relevant provisions of the Act: Sec. 14A (Regulation of Sale of Liquor in State), Sec. 16 (Duty on Liquor), Sec. 16A (Approval to the Label), Sec. 17 (Duty how imposed) and Sec. 20 (Conditions of Licenses). The Court held that under the scheme of Sec. 14A of the Act, grant of license can be obtained either by auction or operation of departmental vends. The Rules provide a set of procedure and formalities to be completed before a license becomes permanent. The Court specifically relied on Rule 30(8) which was inserted in the year 2004 providing for the temporary period of 4 months. The court while noting the year of enactment of the said Act and Rules, expressed its astonishment on the fact that since the Rules were enacted in 1984, more than 8 decades after the enactment of Act in svt. 1958 (1901 AD), the process of allotment of funds operated without any rules and with no clauses of repeal and savings. III. Challenge to Excise Policies The Court struck down clause 3.2.7 of the Excise Policy 2017-18 providing for the grant of new licenses for a period of 5 years as being contrary to Clause 3.2.1 which states that the grant of licenses shall be operated strictly within the terms of Act and Rules. Similarly, the Bench struck down Clause 3.2.4 and and clause 3.2.7 for the policies of 2018-19 and 2019-20 respectively. “There was no change in the License fee for any of the categories though liquor trade is said to be one, which though is prohibited but is a major source of revenue for the government but no application of mind was there by any authority in that direction.” The bench held. IV. Renewal of Licenses for trade in liquor is not a Fundamental Right The bench while noting that there is no fundamental right of a person to do trade or business in liquor noted that the licenses were being renewed in Jammu and Kashmir for decades and that a practice which is contrary to law, is sought to be enforced in court. The court was of the view that Rule 14 is only an enabling provision which does not confer any right on the licensees to enforce it in the court of law. “Temporary licenses granted to them could at the most be valid up to 31.03.2006 and thereafter they could only seek renewal thereof, which in terms of the Rules and the law laid down by the Supreme Court is not a matter of right. It is only that parity is sought to be claimed with the licensees who are operating for the last 50-60 years with renewal of their licenses, which again cannot be said to be strictly in accordance with law and will not confer any right on the appellants.” The bench noted. The Court also held that the State Government must frame new Excise Policy for the year 2021-22 in accordance with the provisions of Act and Rules and the liquor vends already operating in the State shall be allowed to continue till 31st March 2021. It also gave liberty to the government to strike down any other provision of these policies which deals with grant and automatic renewal of licenses for a period of 5 years.
