The court has also issued notices to the Ministry of Sports and the AKFI to submit their response to the petition before the next date of hearing.The petitioner, represented by noted sports lawyer Rahul Mehra, has challenged AKFI’s election notification of August 7, an August 16 order that published the electoral roll and the August 17 order that had dismissed his objections without assigning any reasons.The petitioner in his plea has alleged that the AKFI election process violated the National Sports Code of India (2011) as the electoral roll included the unqualified members.“The sports Code requires sports bodies to be democratically governed by ensuring that its governing body is representative and not a mere perpetuation of a particular person or set of persons,” the plea said.“However, the Federation, by holding elections with an electoral college comprising of various persons who are holding office in member state federations contrary to the mandate of the Sports Code beyond the maximum prescribed tenure and age, is permitting and perpetuating the violation of the Sports Code,” it added.Also Read: Delhi High Court stays Kabaddi federation electionsThe petitioner has also alleged that the Delhi High Court-appointed administrator SP Garg too has ignored the non-compliance of the sports code by the State associations and their representatives figure in the electoral list.Garg was given the AKFI charge last year after the court had quashed the appointment of the then AKFI president Mridula Bhaduria for running the federation in an undemocratic and illegal manner.Mridula’s husband Janardan Singh Gehlot, who had assured the control of his family on the apex governing body for kabaddi for over three decades, was also removed from the office of the AKFI life president.Gehlot’s son Tejasvi Gehlot, incumbent acting general secretary of the AKFI, is one of two nominees for the president’s post.

Noted crime reporter Victor Baez kidnapped and murdered in Veracruz state

first_imgNews Receive email alerts Follow the news on Mexico Organisation RSF_en May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Help by sharing this information May 5, 2021 Find out more The body of the noted Mexican journalist Víctor Báez Chino was found on 14 June in the centre of Xalapa, the capital of Veracruz state, the day after he was kidnapped outside his office. Baez, who was well known locally and nationally, covered the crime beat for El Portal de Veracruz, a local edition of the weekly Milenio, and ran the crime reporters’ network Reporteros Policíacos. Veracruz state, listed by Reporters Without Borders among the most dangerous places in the world for those working in the media, had already seen three journalists killed in the preceding two months.Nine have been killed — and another has gone missing — since the inauguration of the governor Javier Duarte in 2010. A dozen others have fled into exile. In the country as a whole, 85 journalists have been murdered and 15 have disappeared in a decade. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies MexicoAmericas to go further June 16, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Noted crime reporter Victor Baez kidnapped and murdered in Veracruz state NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say “Apart from the demands we express to local and federal authorities to resolve this case, we ask members of the G20 meeting in Mexico on 18 and 19 June to take up the matter of the host country’s non-compliance with basic rights and freedoms over the past six years,” Reporters without Borders said“The federal government’s disastrous campaign against the drugs trade is one of the mains reasons for this. The subject should not be overlooked at the G20 talks in Los Cabos, or in the run-up to the federal elections on 1 July.”The account of Baez’s kidnapping given by the Veracruz state government was corroborated to Reporters Without Borders by the management of Milenio El Portal de Veracruz. The Public Security Secretariat was told of his abduction during the night of 13 June. As he left his office, he was seized by three armed men and forced into a grey van. Inquiries, carried out as part of the “Safe Veracruz” campaign, came to an abrupt end early on 14 June when the journalist’s body was found near the editorial offices of two newspapers, Oye Veracruz and Gráfico de Xalapa. The state public prosecutor disclosed that a message signed by the feared criminal syndicate Los Zetas had been found near the body, which said: “This is what happens to those who betray us and try to be clever.” Colleagues of the dead journalist said no prior threats had been received. The case, like earlier ones, is being investigated by the federal justice department and the Special Prosecutor’s Office for Crimes against Freedom of Expression (FEADLE). It is also a test for new legislation making attacks on journalists a federal crime.In addition, the Veracruz state government has announced that special measures to protect journalists will take effect on 20 June, one year to the day after the murder of the editor and columnist Miguel Ángel López Velasco and his wife and son.

Disturbing threats and harassment in wake of European games

They have yet to receive an explanation.Most of the journalists who were prevented from leaving the country in 2014 were subsequently arrested or placed under investigation.The border incident came just four days after Milli reported from Berlin that he had received threats from an Azerbaijani government minister.“We fear that this growing harassment is a forerunner of a new crackdown targeting Meydan TV’s staff,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“Enraged by the failure of their European Games media plan to conceal their massive human rights violations, the authorities apparently want to scapegoat Meydan TV. International attention must not let up now that Azerbaijan is out of the spotlight. On the contrary, the international community must make it clear to President Ilham Aliyev’s regime that it continues to follow developments closely.”Leading source of news about AzerbaijanFounded in 2013, when an unprecedented crackdown on civil society was getting under way in Azerbaijan, Meydan TV quickly established itself as a leading independent source of information about this authoritarian country.It offers investigative reporting, news coverage and news analysis that contrast starkly with what the tightly controlled media based in Azerbaijan provide. In particular, it provides a great deal coverage of corruption and human rights violations.In October 2013, Meydan TV revealed that the results of the presidential election had been determined in advance by software developed by the Central Electoral Commission.During last month’s European Games, Meydan TV repeatedly reported stories that were embarrassing for the government, including the serious injuries sustained by three Austrian athletes when hit by a bus, and state TV’s use of a fake British tourist to sing Azerbaijan’s praises in an interview.Grave threats against two journalistsMilli, who fled to Germany in 2012 after 18 months of arbitrary imprisonment, has given many interviews to the international media about the corruption surrounding the Baku European games and the way the authorities have tried to use them improve their international image and divert attention from the disastrous human rights situation inside Azerbaijan.He reported on 26 June that an intermediary had passed him a message from the sports minister promising that “the state will punish you for this smear campaign against the state that you have organized.”Reporters Without Borders takes this threat very seriously because such a message is not usually issued in Azerbaijan unless it has been approved at the highest level, and calls on the German authorities to do everything necessary to ensure that Milli is protected.Yafez Akramoglu, who used to work for the Prague-based Azerbaijani service of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, said on 29 June he also had received repeated threatening calls from the provincial headquarters of the Ministry of National Security (MNS) in the autonomous province of Nakhchivan.He said his caller told him he was “under surveillance” and that he and his relatives who were still in Azerbaijan would soon be “punished” if he did not stop investigating the business activities of those close to the head of the provincial government.The authorities closed down the Baku bureau of RFE/RL’s Azerbaijani service last December.Azerbaijan is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Fr Boland says he looks forward to returning to his ministry

first_imgNews WhatsApp A Catholic priest who had been on trial for indecent assaults on a 14-year-old girl was found not guilty of all charges at Derry Crown Court today.Fr. Eugene Boland (66), of Parochial House, Killyclogher Road, Omagh, had denied five charges of indecently assaulting the 14-year-old girl between June 28, 1990 and June 30, 1992.The offences were alleged to have occurred while the teenager volunteered at a Parochial House in the Galliagh area of the city.However, after a trial lasting more than a week the jury returned a majority verdict of not guilty on all charges.The jury’s deliberations had lasted almost four and a half hours.Fr. Boland showed no emotion when the verdict was delivered but outside the court he hugged friends and family.Afterwards the priest issued a statement through his solicitor Mr. Kevin McGuigan.In that statement the priest said: “An allegation first made two years ago has had a devastating impact upon my life. “The events of the past two years culminating in the trial which ended today with my acquittal on all charges have been traumatic.”My reputation and character have been impugned by the allegation and the widespread coverage has received in the press and media.”Fr. Boland said he wished to thank the jury for ‘bringing this nightmare to an end’ and he added: “I am grateful that the suspicion and gossip which this allegation hasd provoked will now cease.”The priest went on then to thank his family and friends and his fellow priests including ministers from other denominations who had attended throughout the trial.He then went on to thank the parishioners of Cappagh where he is now based and his former parishioners for their ‘constant support;.’Fr. Boland concluded by thanking his legal team and then added: “As a result of this allegation I have had to step back from my ministry as a priest.”I have been a priest for 42 years and look forward to returning to my ministry as soon as ;possible with my reputation and good name restored.”Fr. Boland left without speaking to the press.
