Journalist living in fear for his life after report on illegal logging

first_imgNews Receive email alerts Follow the news on Indonesia IndonesiaAsia – Pacific On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia IndonesiaAsia – Pacific Melanesia: Facebook algorithms censor article about press freedom in West Papua RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is very worried about a newspaper reporter in the western province of Aceh who has had to go into hiding after being threatened and beaten by an army officer over a report about illegal logging. The reporter, who just uses the name Ahmadi, works for the local daily Harian Aceh.“It is unacceptable just days after World Environment Day on 5 June that a journalist is being treated like this for writing about deforestation,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Indonesian authorities, especially the defence minister, must react by punishing the army officer responsible for these threats.”In its recent report “Deforestation and pollution, high-risk subjects,” Reporters Without Borders noted that local and foreign journalists are frequently threatened or bribed in connection with their coverage of illegal logging in Indonesia, which leads the world in deforestation. Read the report.During a visit to Alapan district on 19 May to do a story on flooding, Ahmadi and another reporter, Aziz of News Investigasi Medan, noticed illegal logging taking place on land place belonging to the local police station. When they contacted a local army officer, Lt. Faisal Amin, for a comment, he told them not to write anything about it.Harian Aceh ran a story by Ahmadi on 21 May linking Lt. Amin to the illegal logging. The same day, Ahmadi was “invited” to meet with Lt. Amin on a military base. When he arrived, his mobile phone and laptop were taken from him and, when he tried to recover the phone, Amin let off several shots with his firearm and shouted: “You liar. You have humiliated me three times. I told you not to publish it but you insisted.”Lt. Amin then beat Ahmadi about the head, face and chest and threatened to kill his family if he did not retract the article’s claims. Ahmadi nonetheless refused and, after four hours of mistreatment, he was released. He filed a complaint at the Simeulue district police station before going to a hospital for treatment to his injuries.Yuli Maroko, a regional army spokesman, subsequently acknowledged that Ahmadi had been given a beating by a “military officer” but no action was taken against Lt. Amin. Soldiers were sent to protect Ahmadi’s family at their home.Ahmadi has been living in hiding, far from his family, since the incident. He told Reporters Without Borders: “I want justice to be done. I want my assailant to be tried before a civilian court. I also request protection for my family and myself during and after the trial. Despite the appointment of a new commander in the district of Simeulue and his attempts to reassure me about our safety, I am still worried.” Help by sharing this information to go furthercenter_img News November 19, 2020 Find out more Organisation News June 9, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist living in fear for his life after report on illegal logging News Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years August 21, 2020 Find out more August 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Ten years in prison for online anti-government articles

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemned a ten-year prison sentence handed down to Ren Zhiyuan, 27, for posting virulent anti-government articles online, including a tract entitled, “The path to democracy”.The press freedom organisation called for Ren’s immediate release, attacking the authorities’ hounding of opposition figures who express their views online.Ren Zhiyuan was arrested on 10 May 2005 and then tried on 30 September 2005 by the intermediate court in Jining, eastern China, for “subversion of state power”. However the verdict was only made public on 17 March 2006. The cyberdissident’s lawyer said he would appeal the decision.According to the US-based Human Rights in China, Ren, a secondary school teacher in the eastern province of Shandong, was charged with posting several articles deemed subversive, including “The Path to Democracy” in which he asserted the right to resort to violence to overthrow tyranny.“These comments come under the heading of freedom of expression and we consider that you cannot condemn someone simply on the basis of their statements,” said Reporters Without Borders. The Communist Party Manifesto, written in 1848 by Marx and Engels, and on which the Chinese Communist Party’s ideology is still based today itself ends with these words: ‘The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions.’ Ren Zhiyuan was also sentenced for attempting to create a political opposition movement known as ”Mainland Democracy Frontline”, recruiting members on the Internet.He was also arrested at the end of April 2005 during a journey he was making through various Chinese provinces to meet dissidents whom he had contacted through the Internet, according to a statement from his father, Ren Rusheng.

IT managers set poor example on work-life issues

first_img Previous Article Next Article IT managers set poor example on work-life issuesOn 23 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today IT workers are demanding better work-life balance, but more than half ofthose working in the sector do not believe senior managers are leading byexample. That was one of the main findings in a report that looked at flexibleworking across the IT industry, which was prepared for the Department of Tradeand Industry and the Intellect Women in IT Forum by consultants Flexecutive,and surveyed 1,000 IT professionals. The findings revealed that while 93 per cent of women and 81 per cent of menwant more flexibility in their working practices, 55 per cent don’t think theirsenior managers make good work-life balance role models. Nearly three-quarters (74 per cent) fear that moving to a part-time orflexible career will harm their promotional prospects. This could explain the 3per cent decline in the number of women working in IT (Labour Force Survey2002-2003). Commenting on the findings, trade and industry secretary Patricia Hewittsaid: “The number of women working in IT fell by 3 per cent last year andthe sector needs to urgently consider the reasons behind this fall. “Every time a well-trained woman leaves, a company wastes time andmoney on recruitment and training. Yet, offering a woman with children greaterchoice over working hours could stop her leaving, save the company money andmean she can carry on enjoying a good career. “I believe flexible working offers a ‘win-win’ [situation]. I stronglyurge senior IT employers to give greater commitment to the work-life balanceagenda, from the top down, to reverse the downward trend in women working inIT,” she added. www.flexecutive.comOther findings– 50 per cent of respondents indicated that they don’t getinvolved with their family as much as they would like– A third do not believe their organisation is committed tohelping them achieve a reasonable work-life balance– 84 per cent believe that full-time flexible working should beavailable to all– More than half (51 per cent) of full-time workers surveyedalready work flexible hours– Those that do work part-time or flexibly believe that keyroles and projects are only given to full-time employees.Source: Flexecutive Related posts:No related photos.

Arboretum’s Weld Hill Research Building awarded LEED certification

first_imgThe Arnold Arboretum is pleased to announce that the Weld Hill Research Building has been awarded LEED Gold in assessments established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute.Opened in January 2011, the Arboretum’s research and administration facility at Weld Hill was designed and constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications, incorporating many technologies designed to minimize the building’s impact on the environment and its surrounding neighborhood. Leveraging energy-efficient mechanical systems and innovative water management technologies, the facility reflects the Arboretum’s strong interest in conservation and sustainability. LEED certification also acknowledges the Arboretum’s choice of “green” construction methods, such as clearing only the land required for construction and employing on-site soil management and erosion control techniques.LEED is the nation’s preeminent program for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. By using less energy and water, LEED certified buildings save money, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and contribute to a healthier environment. Weld Hill incorporates water-saving technologies not only in the interior of the building, such as dual flush toilets and low-flow showers for bicycle commuters, but also through the design of its surroundings. The landscape around the building consists mainly of a “cosmopolitan meadow mix,” a selection of hardy perennials developed by Arboretum Senior Scientist Peter Del Tredici. Requiring only yearly mowing and no irrigation, this sustainable alternative to grass reduces typical water requirements by half. Read Full Storylast_img read more

He’s Ba-ack! Original Star Jeff Blumenkrantz Returns to Murder For Two

first_imgAfter appearing in the New York Philharmonic’s Sweeney Todd concert, original Murder For Two cast member Jeff Blumenkrantz has returned to the scene of the crime—New World Stages, that is—to play all of the suspects in the hit off-Broadway musical comedy on March 17. He succeeds composer Joe Kinosian, who took over the role during Blumenkrantz’s hiatus. Directed by Scott Schwartz, Murder For Two features music by Kinosian, lyrics by Kellen Blair and a book by both Kinosian and Blair. Blumenkrantz reunites with original cast member Brett Ryback in the zany musical comedy. Murder For Two is a murder mystery with a twist: one actor (Ryback) investigates the crime, the other plays all the suspects (Kinosian) and they both play the piano. Blumenkrantz has appeared on Broadway in Into the Woods, The Threepenny Opera, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, A Class Act and Damn Yankees. His film and TV credits include The Good Wife, Will and Grace, 30 Rock and Ugly Betty.
