Reporter needs immediate full police protection in Italy’s Puglia region

But Cucinotta’s decision needs to be endorsed by officials in Rome so that Mastrogiovanni will be able to receive full police protection whenever she visits the southern part of Puglia, Salento, the region where she was born and where she lived until she and her family were forced to leave a year ago. “This journalist will continue to be exposed to serious death threats if no action is taken,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s European Union desk. “We already called on the local authorities to do everything possible to protect her when she was getting a lot of threats last summer. We welcome the prefect’s  decision to grant her this protection but its implementation depends on the provincial committee for public order and security in the cities of Bari and Lecce.” The editor of Il Tacco d’Italia, the news site she founded in 2003, and a specialist in covering Sacra Corona Unita, a regionalcrime family known as Italy’s “fourth mafia,” Mastrogiovanni has until now received a partial form of police protection.

RSF publishes report on media and journalism in Algeria

first_imgReports Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Related documents rapport_algerie_en_web.pdfPDF – 5.37 MB Follow the news on Algeria May 12, 2021 Find out more Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections READ THE REPORTRSF will also give a news conference at its headquarters in Paris today to present its recommendations on Algeria, which include the immediate release of freelance journalist Hassan Bouras. A petition to call for his liberation has been launched. The report describes the progressive asphyxiation of the Algerian media since President Abdelaziz Bouteflika’s reelection for a fourth term in 2014. The death in detention on 11 December of Mohamed Tamalt, a journalist with British and Algerian dual nationality, has just made the outlook even more sombre, as it is the first time a detainee has died as a result of posting opinions on Facebook. The fight for media freedom is needed more than ever in country where corruption, politicians’ assets and the president’s health are all off limits, professional and non-professional journalists are jailed on criminal charges, broadcasting is under tight control, independent newspapers are being throttled economically and media are being financed with hidden funds. This grim situation is likely to get even worse in the run-up to legislative elections that are scheduled for April 2017. “Algeria’s journalists have fought for freedom of information with a great deal of courage and resilience since the 1990s but now, behind a facade of pluralism, authoritarian practices are undermining journalistic independence,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “How far will the Algerian authorities go to stifle the media and those who defend it? Is it not outrageous that a journalist has died in detention in 2016 after three months in a coma while the prison system remains completely indifferent? Mehdi Benaissa and Ryad Hartouf were held arbitrarily for more than 20 days in June. Hassan Bouras, a freelance journalists and whistleblower, is still being held.” At today’s news conference, RSF will present its recommendation to the Algerian authorities and the international community on what should be done to improve freedom of information in Algeria. The most urgent measure is the release of Hassan Bouras and the withdrawal of all the charges against him. Bouras was sentenced to a year in prison on a charge of “insulting state authority” for publishing interviews with residents of El Bayadh (a city 500 km southwest of Algiers), who accused local police and judicial officials of taking bribes and jailing innocent people on the basis of completely false testimony. A petition calling for his liberation has been launched today. RSF also urges the Algerian authorities to: – Conduct an independent investigation into the circumstances of Mohamed Tamalt’s death, so that those responsible are punished without delay. – Stop using the criminal code, arbitrary detention and abusive administrative procedures to suppress and criminalize freedom of information and independent journalism. – Amend the criminal code, abolishing prison terms for media offences, including insult, contempt and defamation. – End all forms of restriction on the right to information leading to censorship of the media, including censorship of the following subjects: the president’s health, the foreign assets and bank accounts of Algeria’s leaders, corruption and social unrest. – Ensure that the procedures for granting broadcast licences and frequencies reflect the principles of fairness, pluralism and transparency, in order to strengthen the public’s right to independent news and information. When licences are refused, the grounds should be given and made public. – Ensure that media ownership is more transparent, in order to avoid concentration of news media ownership and conflicts of interest. – Support media and civil society groups that defend media freedom in Algeria, in order to encourage the existence and development of free and independent media, including community media. In the course of preparing this report, which is available hereunder, RSF conducted some 20 interviews in Algiers, Oran and Tunis from May to October 2016 with the support of the French Development Agency (AFD).

Oil prices taxing for Vermonters

first_imgOil prices taxing for Vermontersby Kevin KelleyVermonters have been whacked with the equivalent of a new $850 million tax as a result of the doubling of oil prices in the past year, said Tom Kavet, the State Legislature’s economist. That hit – heavier than the total $622 million impact from personal income tax payments – is bound to stagger the Vermont economy as consumers cut back on discretionary spending in order to pay for heating fuel and gasoline, Kavet reckoned.About 70 percent of the added charge for the 17 million barrels of oil consumed annually in Vermont is going overseas – to the Middle East, Africa and Latin America. “Almost none of it stays in-state,” he said.It’s largely because of that drain that Kavet expects a “severe” recession to occur in Vermont.Peter Shumlin, the 52-year-old leader of the Democratic majority in the State Senate, fears that the coming downturn will prove to be “the most difficult of my lifetime.” And Matt Cota, director of the Vermont Fuel Dealers Association, likened the approaching turbulence to a category-five hurricane. “We’ve had a 6-month warning to brace for it,” he said.The clouds do appear darkly ominous.An average Vermont household with an income of about $50,000 spent roughly $2,000 on heating fuel last winter, estimated Dick Heaps, vice president of Westford-based Northern Economic Consulting. According to Heaps, that four percent share of gross income could more than double this winter. “That’s going to have a large negative impact on the economy,” he said.Vermonters have already achieved considerable reductions in heating oil consumption by adopting conservation measures, Cota said. A typical home burned about 1,500 gallons of fuel per year a couple of decades ago, compared to around 850 gallons now, he said. Cota believes that further enhancements of furnace efficiency and a tighter buttoning up of homes, combined with still-lower settings of thermostats, could bring consumption down to as little as 600 gallons per household in the coming year. Even at that level, however, a Vermont household would still have to spend about $3,000 on heating fuel, based on the current price of about $5 a gallon.Cota expressed hope that emergency assistance initiatives by both the federal and state governments will prevent tragedies from occurring in Vermont during the sub-freezing months. In the meantime, some fuel dealers are playing the role of social workers, he said. Cota imagines a scenario in which a heating-oil delivery man telling a customer, “You live in this great big farmhouse by yourself. Maybe you should consider moving in with your daughter for the winter.”Businesses don’t have those sorts of options, said Duane Marsh, director of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce. “They can’t switch to wood-burning stoves,” he said, “but I’m sure they’ll be dialing down and buying lots of sweaters.”Because business owners are “pretty resilient in the short term,” Marsh expects that “tough decisions” will be deferred to the next fiscal year in many cases. “But the longer something like this goes on,” he said of the upward spiral in energy costs, “the more difficult it becomes to maintain the status quo.”The state government will also be seeking additional economies as energy-related expenditures rise and as tax revenues fall, said Susan Bartlett, chair of the State Senate Appropriations Committee. Travel plans for state officials are being scaled back or eliminated altogether. But the state can do little to economize on heating costs, most of which accumulate at schools, Bartlett added.Bartlett said firm estimates of the energy crisis’ impact on the state’s budget are not yet available. What’s already clear, Kavet noted, is that revenues from taxes on gasoline and on automobile sales and use are down by a total of about $15 million from last year. Rooms and meals tax receipts are dropping as well, mainly because tourists are either not coming to Vermont in the same numbers or are choosing to spend less when they do visit the state.Despite these strains, Vermont’s budget remains in comparatively sound shape, Bartlett said. The state’s economy has also not been ravaged nearly as much as Florida’s or Arizona’s, for example, where home sales have tanked due to speculative overbuilding. The housing market is still generally stable in Vermont, with far fewer foreclosures occurring here on a percentage basis than in many other states.According to Heaps, a continued positive performance by its housing sector may enable Vermont to survive a national downturn with few scars. He still adheres to the belief that the U.S. economy will not experience a deep or long-lasting recession.Cota takes an optimistic view as well. Because the run-up in oil prices amounts to a bubble, he said, the price of a barrel should drop back to $70 or $80, which would bring back the days of $2 per gallon heating oil.”The question is when this will happen,” Cota said.Kavet observed that not all business sectors will be badly bruised in Vermont. Due to the weakness of the U.S. dollar, he said, the “winners in the current situation will be those who export, and Vermont does have a fair number of companies that do a good export business.”According to Kavet, the governor and State Legislature have only limited abilities to stimulate Vermont’s economy or to mitigate the effects of a national recession. “We don’t have anything like the fiscal and monetary levers that are available to the national legislature,” he said.In the long term, however, Vermont’s political leaders could position the state to prosper more than it has in the past, Shumlin said. He described a switchover to renewable energy as an inevitable move for the country as a whole. Vermont could take advantage of that development by working harder to attract “creative new jobs in the energy sectors.”In the immediate future, Bartlett said, the legislature and governor can cooperate to “take a lot of little steps that, together, will help ordinary Vermonters make it through this winter and help Vermont businesses in the process.”last_img read more

Hetmyer misses ton as Jaguars brush aside ICC Americas

first_imgCAVE HILL, Barbados (CMC) – Guyana Jaguars wrapped up a disappointing preliminary round campaign in the Regional Super50 by brushing aside ICC Americas by eight wickets, in their final Group B outing here yesterday.Already eliminated from advancing to the final four, Jaguars used the opportunity to notch their fourth win of the tournament by easily chasing down 171 at 3Ws Oval.Opener Shimron Hetmyer, returning to the lineup after missing the last two games, missed out on a maiden hundred with 94 while fellow left-hander Assad Fudadin hit 54 – his second half-century of the competition.The pair put on 142 for the first wicket to negate any chance of an upset, as ICC Americas slumped to their sixth defeat in seven outings.Hetmyer, the successful former West Indies Under-19s captain, hammered ten fours and four sixes in an aggressive 76-ball knock while Fudadin faced 66 deliveries and counted four fours and two sixes.Jaguars galloped to their 50 off just 48 balls and reached 100 in the 19th over, with Hetmyer undertaking the bulk of the scoring.In fact, he raised his half-century off 49 deliveries and then required another 27 deliveries to motor into the 90s before falling short of his landmark.He perished in the 26th over with the score on 158, 19 deliveries after Fudadin had departed.Earlier, ICC Americas were bowled out of 170 off 48.1 overs, after choosing to bat first.They were undermined by left-arm seamer Raymon Reifer (3-15) and leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo (3-28) both of whom finished with three wickets apiece.Nikhil Dutta top-scored with 38, Saad bin Zafar weighed in with 36 while Nitish Kumar got 31.Openers Akeem Dodson (2) and Kamau Leverock (5) both fell cheaply to leave ICC Americas struggling on 12 for two in the fifth over before Kumar and Alex Amsterdam, who made 25, put on 55 for the third wicket.Once they were separated, another slump ensued where ICC Americas lost four wickets for nine runs in the space of 24 balls and this time, Dutta and bin Zafar combined in a 67-run partnership, to rescue the innings.Dutta struck two fours off 77 balls while bin Zafar cracked a four and a six off 63 balls but the partnership though productive was a slow one and ICC Americas were only 136 for six in the 40th over.When left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul removed Dutta to a catch at the wicket in the 43rd over, the innings declined again, as the last four wickets fell for 27 runs.ICC AMERICAS inningsK.

Tourists spending more in South Africa

first_img15 June 2010A new report by Visa shows a 34% increase in inbound tourism spending in South Africa during the first quarter of the year, and anticipates additional growth from the 2010 Fifa World Cup.These were among the findings of “Tourism Outlook: South Africa”, an annual report that analyses Visa cardholder spending over the past two years. The report is based on VisaVue travel data, a tool that analyses cardholder spending patterns worldwide.“VisaVue travel data indicates that South Africa weathered the economic headwinds which impacted international tourism during 2009 better than most countries around the world,” Visa said in a statement this week.Continued optimismWhile many countries saw double-digit drops in inbound tourism spending, Visa cardholder spending by international visitors to South Africa decreased only 2.7% from US$1.84-billion in 2008 to $1.79-billion in 2009.Despite a challenging climate in 2009, 2010 has already shown reasons for the country’s continued optimism – during the first quarter of 2010, Visa cardholder spending increased to nearly $566-million, up from $423-million during the first quarter of 2009.The top contributors to South Africa’s inbound tourism spending in 2009 include: The United Kingdom (26%), United States (15%), Mozambique (5%), Germany (4%) and France (4%).Emerging market touristsWhile travellers from Western Europe and the US continue to be the strongest contributors to South African tourism, significant increases in spending by cardholders from emerging markets is indicative of South Africa’s growing stature as a tourism destination.Visa data revealed double- and triple-digit growth in spending by cardholders originating from Malawi (168%), Mozambique (118%), Angola (115%), China (28%) and Botswana (18%).“This significant growth can also be attributed to developments in payments infrastructure and increased adoption and use of digital currency by consumers in developing markets,” said Visa.World Cup boostAs host of the World Cup, South Africa is uniquely positioned to enhance its visibility globally, Visa says, adding that the tournament will provide South Africa with a significant opportunity to showcase its unique assets and culture to the world and attract visitors and tourism revenues for years to come.The month-long World Cup is expected to add R93-billion to the South African economy, translating to a 0.54% boost to gross domestic product, a significant contribution given that the total South Africa GDP growth in 2010 is estimated at 2% to 2.5%.“The influx of international tourism surrounding the [World Cup] has helped to support continued infrastructure developments and economic growth within South Africa,” said Visa Sub-Saharan Africa GM Charles Niehaus.“As a long-time partner to Fifa and the tourism industry, Visa is committed to delivering a secure, reliable and convenient payments system to South Africa consumers and merchants, and providing current spending information that can help businesses and the government to enhance inbound tourism arrivals and revenues.”Retail purchases ruleConsistent with tourism spending trends over the past three years, retail purchases continued to account for the largest share of tourism spend on Visa cards in South Africa in 2009, followed by travel-related purchases such as lodging, airlines and travel agencies.During the first quarter of 2010, the largest merchant segments for South Africa inbound tourism spending, based on transaction volume, were general retail-related purchases such as clothing and food-related transactions.Several merchant segments showed significant growth over first quarter 2009 levels: Visa cardholder spending in the restaurant segment increased 48%, lodging purchases increased 41%, general retail purchases increased 32%, auto rentals increased 29%, and airlines saw a 19% increase.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?
