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).

Subglacial geology and geomorphology of the Pensacola‐Pole Basin, East Antarctica

first_imgThe East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS) is underlain by a series of low‐lying subglacial sedimentary basins. The extent, geology and basal topography of these sedimentary basins are important boundary conditions governing the dynamics of the overlying ice sheet. This is particularly pertinent for basins close to the grounding line wherein the EAIS is grounded below sea level, and therefore potentially vulnerable to rapid retreat. Here, we analyze newly acquired airborne geophysical data over the Pensacola‐Pole Basin (PPB), a previously unexplored sector of the EAIS. Using a combination of gravity, magnetic and ice‐penetrating radar data, we present the first detailed subglacial sedimentary basin model for the PPB. Radar data reveal that the PPB is defined by a topographic depression situated ~500 m below sea level. Gravity and magnetic depth‐to‐source modeling indicate that the southern part of the basin is underlain by a sedimentary succession 2–3 km thick. This is interpreted as an equivalent of the Beacon Supergroup and associated Ferrar dolerites that are exposed along the margin of East Antarctica. However, we find that similar rocks appear to be largely absent from the northern part of the basin, close to the present‐day grounding line. In addition, the eastern margin of the basin is characterized by a major geological boundary and a system of overdeepened subglacial troughs. We suggest that these characteristics of the basin may reflect the behavior of past ice sheets and/or exert an influence on the present‐day dynamics of the overlying EAIS.last_img read more

Altera Infrastructure announces Petrojarl Knarr contract extension

first_img Altera Infrastructure extends Petrojarl Knarr contract. (Credit: David Mark from Pixabay.) Altera Infrastructure L.P. (the “Partnership”) today announced that its subsidiary Teekay Knarr AS has entered into a contract amendment with AS Norske Shell, as operator for and on behalf of the Knarr field licence partners (the “Operator”), that extends the contract for the lease and operation of the Petrojarl Knarr FPSO (the “Vessel”) until at least March 2022.The vessel has been operating on the Knarr field since 2015 under a firm duration until March 2021, which included a further fee payable by the Operator if the contract was not extended through to 2025 and with additional extension options thereafter. The contract amendment includes a reduction in day rate from March 2021 to March 2022 and the removal of the fee payable by the Operator if the contract was not extended, in return for the introduction of an additional production volume and oil price related tariff. The amendment also terminates the Operator’s purchase option for the vessel and provides for a mutual right to terminate the contract on 6 months’ notice without payment of penalty, such termination not to be effective before March 2022.“We are pleased to announce this important FPSO contract extension for the Petrojarl Knarr, and we are committed to work together with the licence partners to continue to operate safely and maximize production on the field. The contract amendment provides important visibility for the next period of operations and it also enables us to position the vessel for the next re-deployment”, says Chris Brett, President Altera Infrastructure FPSO. Altera Infrastructure, previously Teekay Offshore, owns and has been operating the FPSO since it achieved first oil on 16th March 2015.
