Journalist murdered while receiving government protection

first_img RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Organisation ColombiaAmericas ColombiaAmericas News Follow the news on Colombia October 21, 2020 Find out more Reportscenter_img April 27, 2021 Find out more March 18, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist murdered while receiving government protection May 13, 2021 Find out more The murder of journalist Luis Eduardo Alfonso while he was supposedly receiving government protection on 18 March in the eastern city of Arauca is the subject of an energetic joint condemnation by the Bogotá-based Press Freedom Foundation (FLIP), the Peruvian-based Press and Society Institute (IPYS) and Reporters Without Borders. The three organisations urged President Álvaro Uribe Vélez and interior and justice minister Fernando Londoño Hoyos, who heads the Journalists’ Protection Programme, to ensure that journalists who are meant to benefit from this programme are effectively protected.”Luis Eduardo Alfonso’s murder represents a failure for this programme, and we therefore call for a prompt and thorough review of the way it is run,” the three organisations said. “The Colombian authorities have a duty to ensure that journalists are safe so that society’s right to be informed is respected.”The three organisations also called on director of public prosecutions Luis Camilo Osorio to speed up investigations into attacks against the press and urged attorney general Edgardo Maya to ensure that every effort is made to identify and punish any negligence on the part of the officials who were in charge of protecting Alfonso.A joint fact-finding mission by Reporters Without Borders, FLIP, IPYS, the Antonio Nariño Project and the rapid reaction unit of the Inter-American Press Association (IAPA) at the end of 2002 had highlighted the vulnerability of journalists in Arauca department and the inadequate response of the government agencies tasked with protecting their work, as required by article 72 of the constitution. In a report entitled “Arauca: news in danger,” this joint mission had warned that journalists in Arauca lacked the basic security measures for covering the armed conflict. Since its publication, guerrilla groups in Arauca department have kidnapped seven journalists, two of them working for foreign media.Alfonso’s work as a journalist, and his deathAged 33, Alfonso was gunned down at the entrance to radio Meridiano 70 in the city of Arauca at 4:40 a.m. on 18 March. According to testimonies obtained by FLIP and IPYS, two men on a motorcycle fired three shots at Alfonso as he was waiting for a security guard to open the radio station’s door. His body was found at some distance from a diary he had been carrying on his person, suggesting that he had begun to run away from his assailants. Some sources claimed to have heard an argument before the shots.Alfonso was the joint editor of the news programme “Actualidad Informativa” which was broadcast from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. and from noon to 2 p.m. He was also a correspondent for the daily El Tiempo and acted as a press consultant for congressman Adalberto Jaimes.According to Miguel Ángel Rojas, the news programme’s other editor, Alfonso specialised in covering public order and municipal government irregularities. Station manager Mabel Varela had warned him several times to be careful because of the temerity of his allegations, especially as his name appeared on several lists of persons threatened by armed groups operating in the area.Alfonso had replaced Efraín Varela, who was gunned down on 28 June 2002 in a killing blamed on a paramilitary group. Varela and Alfonso were first threatened on 9 September 2001 in an e-mail message in which the paramilitary United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia (AUC) warned them that the AUC’s arrival in the region meant that they had become “military targets.” On 2 July 2002, four days after Varela’s murder, Alfonso and three other journalist fled the region fearing that an attack against them was imminent.On 4 July, he wrote to the interior ministry’s human rights department reporting the danger to which he was exposed. The same day, he also filed a complaint with the public prosecutor’s office in Bogotá detailing the reasons he feared for his life, especially the murder of Varela, with whom he had worked since October 2000.The Administrative Department for Security (DAS) carried out an assessment on 26 August to evaluate the degree of risk he was running in Bogotá, and concluded that the level of risk was low.On 25 September, Alfonso’s case was examined by the journalists’ Risks Assessment and Regulation Committee (CRER), a body made up of various press freedom NGOs that is headed by the interior ministry. In view of the seriousness of the facts reported by Alfonso, the committee asked the police for a new assessment of the security in the Arauca region. According to the minutes of the meeting, the committee requested that “the authorities be notified of his presence in Arauca in order to give him the necessary protection.”Alfonso’s case came before the CRER again on 26 October. This time, the committee decided to “ask the National Police to verify that he was still benefiting from security measures – police patrols.” This request was repeated on 11 December when a second assessment put the level of risk at medium-low: “It was recommended that the police should again be asked to give him periodic escorting.”When the FLIP and IPYS spoke with the chief of police in Arauca, Col. Luis Alcides Morales, immediately after Alfonso’s death, he said he was aware of Alfonso’s risk situation “just like that of about 300 other persons who are threatened in Aracua” and that the police could not “give each one of them an escort.”Three days before his death, Alfonso told the IPYS that the protection he had received had been limited to occasional visits by police patrols which were now suspended. Meanwhile, the complaint Alfonso filed with the public prosecutor’s office in Bogotá, which was given case number 635977, was still at the preliminary stage of investigation along with 35 other threats against journalists, an IPYS study established. Some of these cases have been in the preliminary stage of investigation since 1999.The report “Arauca: news in danger” is available at the following websites: www.rsf.org www.flip.org.cowww.ipyspe.org.pewww.fnpi.org RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News to go further News RSF_en last_img read more

Virus and Georgia Wheat

first_imgGeorgia wheat farmers figure to get some of the best prices ever for this year’s crop.That makes their losses to a viral disease even harder to take.”We can find barley yellow dwarf virus in just about every wheat field across thestate at some level,” said Randy Hudson, an entomologist with the University ofGeorgia Extension Service. “Fortunately, not all the fields have the same level ofdamage.”Hudson and Dewey Lee, an Extension feed grains agronomist, figure losses will approach$8 million, depending on the weather in the final days before harvest, which starts inlate May.Georgia’s wheat harvest is divided fairly evenly between the part milled for flour andthe grain exported as livestock feed.Farmers’ reduced yields won’t affect the price of your flour or bread because Georgiagrows such a tiny part of the world market. But they’ll take a bite out of an otherwisehealthy boost to the state’s rural economy.Hudson said earliest-planted wheat in east-central Georgia shows the most dramaticsymptoms of the disease. But it’s in other areas, too.”We’veseen losses of more than 50 percent in specific fields in east Georgia,” he said.Other fields may show disease symptoms but not lose much of their wheat.Boyd Padgett, an Extension plant pathologist, said he’s seen the disease in nearlyevery wheat variety grown in Georgia. “Some may be less susceptible, but that’s not immunity,” hesaid.Farmers planted wheat on about 400,000 acres in more than two-thirds of Georgia’s counties this year.Extension economist George Shumaker said low world grain supplies have driven up pricesfor wheat and other small grains.Farmers have seen prices in the $6-per-bushel range for the July 1996 crop. That’s nearly double last year’s$3.50 wheat.This virus relies on aphids to travel from plant to plant and from one field toanother. Partly because they’re so small, aphids are hard to control.Hudson is working with David Buntin, a research entomologist, to control aphids inGeorgia and the Southeast. But barring aphid control, he said, farmers can’t do anything to preventinfection or help infected plants.”A virus causes barley yellow dwarf,” he said. Plant viruses act like mostviruses in humans. You can’t prevent them or cure them.”Farmers need to know this is out there,” Padgett said. “But going outand spraying fungicides for barley yellow dwarf is a waste of time and money.” The disease slows the flow of nutrients from leaves to the forming grain head. As aresult, less grain is harvested. Hudson said the plant makes lower-quality grain, too.Even with the disease problem, this year has been very good for wheat farmers.”The crop condition is good,” Shumaker said. “And farmers who have takenadvantage of the high prices are looking at a very profitable year.”So what can farmers do?Very little besides preparing for next year. “Once they’re aware of theproblem,” Hudson said, “they need to manage their next crop with barley yellowdwarf in mind.”Experts hope ongoing research can provide controls for barley yellow dwarf. Field testsshow that in-furrow insecticide treatments may help control the aphids that carry thevirus.”That could help us,” Hudson said. “But until then, we’ll just grin and bear it. Atleast the wheat Georgia farmers do make is valuable.”last_img read more

John Ogu; Striving for  Super Eagles Regular Shirt

first_imgI am very happy,” he said. On what it is like playing in that league, he said, “football is not so much about the league you play. It is a team sport. It is a function of the quality of the players available to any team. The difference between this and the other top five leagues I can say is about the experience of the players in those top leagues. “Another factor affecting top players coming to Israel is fear of safety. Many players are worried about the situation in the country. The league is probably on the same level financially as Turkey but a lot of players probably feel safer going to Turkey.” On how he feels that at Hapoel he is one of the first names on the team sheet but for the Super Eagles, despite his experience, he is not a guaranteed starter, he explained, “I am one of those who will always respect the decisions of the coach. It is a dream to be called up to represent Nigeria and so it is an honour to be in the squad. So when I come to the Super Eagles camp I do not feel I am coming to replace anyone. I just feel I am coming to help my country win matches and qualify for tournaments.” Ogu’s main target is to see Nigeria book a place to the 2018 World Cup in Russia. “My main target now though is that Nigeria qualifies for the World Cup. Cameroon will have received a big boost with their AFCON win but we have to be determined and keep our heads and we will make it and make Nigerians happy,” he said.Speaking with THISDAY, former Nigerian international, Tajudeen Disu, said the list was fair in every ramification and thinks the coaching crew had done a good job of it especially on the invitation of some home-based players and some upcoming players like John Ogu. “I think Rohr is starting to trust Ogu after his performance against Senegal in London. Though, it was far away from a vintage performance but the coach saw in him a bright future and a room for improvement. It is now left for the player to grab the opportunity at his disposal. “If he does well against South Africa he can eventually commandeer the Eagles midfield shirt. He has the potentials no doubt, but he needs to compose himself more and prove to the coach that he’s the best option for that position. “Without trying to undermine his Israeli club-Hapoel Be’er Sheva, a regular shirt for the national team could also earn him bigger clubs in Europe and of cause, better pay. Those are some of the advantages that come along with enjoying regular shirt for the national team,” Disu stated. It therefore remains to be seen how Ogu would grab the opportunity thrown at him now.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram John Ogu’s first stint with the Super Eagles was in a World Cup qualifier against Kenya in 2013. He was also part of Nigeria’s team to the Confederation Cup in Brazil same year, though he appeared not convincing. Another opportunity came his way in March, when he replaced injured Ogenyi Onazi in an international friendly against Senegal in London. Thereafter the German Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr decided to give the Israeli-based player another chance, inviting him ahead of thezÌ„ AFCON qualifier match against South Africa later this year.Kunle Adewale writes on Ogu’s chances at grabbing a regular shirt in the team In John Ogu’s two notable games for the national team, he came in as substitute. In his first game against Kenya in 2013, he came in for injured Victor Moses, while in his last game – a friendly against Senegal in London – he replaced injured Ogenyi Onazi. He has however been handed another opportunity to make the Super Eagles team ahead of the African Cup of Nations qualifying match with South Africa. Ogu has been invited alongside 24 others for the training camp in Corsica and Paris under the watch of Gernot Rohr and has expressed his excitement. Recalling his last experience with the Super Eagles against Senegal in London after being ignored for long, Ogu said: “I had a great time in the Super Eagles camp in London to be honest, 10 days out with the coaching crew and staff was a great experience. I met all the players and I was super happy at the talents I was in camp with. We have the talents now; we have a president who has big plans for our football, we have the coaches who care about our local league as well.” Ogu’s first stint with the Super Eagles was in 2013 under Coach Stephen Keshi while he was still playing for Portuguese club-Academica FC. He had said then, “I feel great and I am happy for the invitation that was extended to me by Stephen Keshi, it’s a great privilege.I expect to give my best to the nation; they should believe in me since I have been invited to camp and I promise to do my best. I was called upon because of my performance and hard work and I’m excited about it.” His excitement quickly faded as his best was not good enough for the team to the Confederation Cup in Brazil, and had been ignored since then until the arrival of the new Eagles German tactician. He, however, attributed his absence from the national team to the decision he took while in Portugal. “It started with a friendly in South Africa when the coach asked me to feign injury but I refused. We were African champions and I wanted to be part of the squad, playing for my country is too important for me,” Ogu told Supersport. “When I returned to Portugal everything changed and he stopped playing me. I didn’t get much attention. I continued working on my game but he never played me. It was only after the team list came out for the World Cup that he (the coach tried to be nice to me) but it was too late. “Now, I am in Israel and playing regularly, enjoying my football, winning league titles and back in the national team.last_img read more

Levon Nikoghosyan: EveryMatrix – PartnerMatrix makes its comeback

first_img StumbleUpon Share PartnerMatrix drives user engagement with two new deals August 13, 2020 Submit Erik Nyman joins EveryMatrix as US lead August 6, 2020 MoneyMatrix boosts wire transfer options by integrating Klarna’s Sofort August 24, 2020 Share Related Articles Levon NikoghosyanPartnerMatrix is a major product revamp and release for EveryMatrix in 2017. A two-year project led by Levon Nikoghosyan CEO of PartnerMatrix, SBC gets the full low down on what EveryMatrix seeks to deliver to the crowded affiliate and player acquisition marketplace.   _________________SBC: Hi Levon, thanks for the interview. Can you detail to SBC readers why PartnerMatrix is such an important release for EveryMatrix in 2017? Levon Nikoghosyan:  SBC PartnerMatrix has been one of the first projects of EveryMatrix and it is not only an important release in 2017 but it has always been an important part of our full package solutions for operators, ranging from sportsbook to casino and payments solutions.Although the new PartnerMatrix version it’s just two years old, is already a competitive product with a responsive and easy to use interface allowing operators manage affiliates’ data, payment plans, marketing tools, reports and user settings, all from a single location. Simple to implement and supplied with continuous updates, the system is fully adaptable for different markets and regions and has gained trust among both startups and big operators.Under constant improvement, our system is an ever-evolving solution. The 2017 releases include, among new languages support and many other small improvements, the launching of real-data reporting and the integration with our payment service provider, MoneyMatrix. This integration allows us to provide so many ways for affiliates to withdraw their commissions and this is another step towards providing one of the most powerful affiliate systems in the iGaming marketSBC: From a product perspective what marks PartnerMatrix as a unique software for the saturated affiliate marketplace? LN: The most important thing, which was at the core of our key features from the start, (back in 2015), was to build a real-time system, for both affiliates and agents, and track everything under one system instead of using two separate systems that track the same data.PartnerMatrix allows affiliates to operate as agents (transfer money to specific players, place a bet in the system, place a bet on behalf of a player) and at the same time the agents can operate as affiliates (use banners to bring traffic, provide promo-codes to customers, keep sub-affiliates). This unique system has been designed to offer our clients the ability to widen their users’ base by using agent networks to target offline customers.I am very happy about the feedback we received from the industry for which I would like to thank our solid and hard-working team.SBC: From your perspective, where do you feel industry affiliates are being underserved, and how has this factor shaped the development of PartnerMatrix as a platform? LN: I think one of the most significant issues nowadays, is the lack of transparency. It is important for affiliates to be able to see how every single number is being generated instead of just being fed with partial data like many systems do.  More than this, the lack of transparency could lead, over time, to trust problems.Our solution provides very detailed and comprehensive reports by displaying a breakdown of every number, costs, bonuses, etc. We can also provide, like in case of some operators, detailed bets history for a better insight.Transparency is not the only issue we see within the industry. Lack of support is among things that are on the table and often brought in discussions. To tackle this concern, PartnerMatrix has been established with its own dedicated Account Management team, which allows us to be close to operators, understand their needs, receive their requirements and deliver the solution in the shortest time.SBC: From a marketing and operations perspective, what new obstacles are facing affiliate as an industry acquisition vertical?LN: There is a huge organic competition between affiliates and our focus is always helping our clients and their affiliates and make sure we give them a powerful advantage over the competition.To this end, the Back-office in PartnerMatrix is highly focused on affiliate manager and administrator comfort. It gives the opportunity to reach each angle of the website and successfully manage all the operations.Relatively new, ad blocking and domain blocking is definitely an obstacle in terms of traffic loss. At PartnerMatrix, we do offer a solution to this problem (which our current affiliates use) by allowing them to choose affiliate domains which do not contain “block words”. Furthermore, operators can immediately change affiliate tracking links if the current domain gets blocked.SBC: Finally, following its initial launch, how do you see PartnerMatrix growing as an EveryMatrix service?LN: I am happy to see it growing every day, by every new release deployment, with every added feature and, the most rewarding, with every new client.We strongly believe that finding the right balance between high performance and product quality requires teamwork and a common vision. To that end, EveryMatrix has assembled PartnerMatrix project as a separate business unit in the company to fully concentrate on providing one of the leading performance marketing and partnership solutions in the world. The bar is set high for us, and this is a good thing.I’m fully confident that competitive pricing, on top of its features, will help PartnerMatrix shine as people’s platform. Whether you are a start-up or a decent sized operator, the platform will meet all operators and affiliates’ needs.____________________________ Levon Nikoghosyan CEO of PartnerMatrix @ EveryMatrixlast_img read more

Thanks To A Generous Community, Santa’s On His Way

first_imgLunch Break Executive Director Gwendolyn Love with a pair of Santas from Dogs on the Farm, a boarding facility for pets in Middletown. Dogs on the Farm and Bayshore Middle School students collected donations of pet food and supplies to help families in need continue to care for their pets during tough economic times.arm in Middletown. Dogs on the Farm and Bayshore Middle School held a donation drive for pet food and supplies, which they delivered to Lunch Break on Wednesday.By Eileen MoonRED BANK – With Christmas just days away, Gwendolyn Love is happy to report that thanks to the generosity of the community, Santa Claus will definitely be coming to the homes of hundreds of needy families in the Red Bank area.“People have truly been generous,” said Love, who is executive director of the Lunch Break Soup Kitchen and food pantry, which provides a constellation of services to disadvantaged families in the two river area and beyond.“It’s just been amazing. We’re doing fine with the gifts right now. We’ve really been blessed by the community. We’re very thankful. Two years ago, it wasn’t like that.”That year, requests for help kept rising even as donations dropped, Love said. “They just kept coming. You’re signing up people and you don’t know if you’re going to have the gifts or not.”What Lunch Break does need, however, are monetary donations, Love said. “We are down with the money.” Because December is when the majority of donations come in, she is hoping for some last minute cash, noting that while people are more inclined to give during the holidays, the need for help is year-round – especially in the present economy.“I did read somewhere that 33 percent of all giving is going to take place Dec. 29, 30 and 31st. I’m hoping that’s true.”This year, Lunch Break has provided Christmas gifts and toys for 370 area families, an increase from last year, when they were able to help approximately 325 families.Love has seen more people making a personal donation than in past years. “They’re being more pro-active, just doing things on their own.”Social media has been a big help in spreading the word about what is needed, too.On average, Lunch Break is providing food pantry items and hot meals to some 400 to 500 families.And though December is solid, Love said she has some concerns once when January arrives. “That’s when everything drops off. Don’t forget us in January.”On Christmas Day, Lunch Break will be open, offering a Christmas breakfast from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. that is open to anyone. “Well have a nice, brief program, and we hope to give away toys.”All are welcome, notes Love.“This is a place a lot of people will come to just because they don’t want to be alone.”last_img read more

Middletown Holds Groundbreaking for Nut Swamp School Fields

first_imgMIDDLETOWN – The Middletown Board of Edu­cation and Township Com­mittee gathered last week at Nut Swamp Elementary School to break ground on the first of two new artificial turf fields.“This is a great day for Middletown Township, the school district and the local sports community,” Mayor Gerard P. Scharfenberger said. “This new field will be invaluable to our school children and many active athletic leagues.”The field, which is located at Nut Swamp Elementary School adjacent to Normandy Park, will be open to students and local athletic leagues for football, soccer, field hockey, lacrosse and other sports. Construction is slated to begin in early July and scheduled to be completed before school starts, the mayor said.The project is the first step in a recent shared-services agreement struck between Middletown Township and the public school district for joint maintenance and periodic upgrades of township and school athletic fields over the next decade.By collaborating on field upgrades and maintenance, township and the school district expect to save on personnel costs, purchase more materials in bulk and more efficiently maintain fields on a regular basis, Scharfenberger said.Under the agreement, the school district contributed $250,000 to the $1.16 million project at Nut Swamp School. The municipal share will be paid for with increases to recreation fees that were approved last year. The township will handle issuing permits to use the field, Township Administrator Anthony Mercantante said.The artificial turf will not need to be watered or cut, requiring less regular maintenance and less expense than traditional grass, Mercantante said.A second artificial turf field will be built on the north end of town, possibly at Thorne Middle School and Harmony Elementary School, which are adjacent to each other. That field is expected to be constructed in 2014, Mercantante said.last_img read more
