Republic of Congo: State TV urged to reinstate news anchor sidelined after coronavirus interview

first_img to go further Ailing magazine editor held illegally in Brazzaville for more than a month News Help by sharing this information Joint call for Brazzaville journalist’s release Follow the news on Congo-Brazzaville Like the Republic of Congo’s media regulator, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on state TV broadcaster Télé Congo to reinstate Rocil Otouna, who was discreetly sidelined as news anchor after putting some difficult questions about the coronavirus crisis to the justice minister in an interview two weeks ago. RSF_en News The Republic of Congo (also known as Congo-Brazzaville) is ranked 118th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Otouna has not been seen on the air since 30 April, when he asked the minister about the lack of information about coronavirus victims, including those currently ill and those who have recovered, and about contradictions between the government’s figures and those given by the president on both the caseload and the lockdown’s economic and social consequences. Receive email alerts Journalist Rocil Otouna, dismissed from the public TV station Télé-Congo. Facebook photo. center_img The communication ministry issued a statement denying reports in several media outlets, including privately-owned Vox TV, that Otouna was suspended as a result of the interview. But several sources confirmed to RSF that he was indeed suspended although the decision was given to him verbally, presumably in order to leave no written trace. On 3 May, World Press Freedom Day, a Télé Congo presenter asked Philippe Mvouo, the president of the Higher Council for Freedom of Communication (CSLC), the Republic of Congo’s media regulator, about Otouna’s reported suspension. Mvouo replied that the council would look into the case. After conducting an investigation and holding hearings, the CSLC confirmed that Otouna had indeed been suspended as a news anchor. The council recommended his immediate rehabilitation and accused the state TV oversight body of “interventionism,” “arbitrary measures” and “aggravated censorship.”“The information gathered by RSF supports the media regulator’s conclusions,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “This journalist was undeniably the subject of a sanction as a result of an interview with the justice minister about the Congolese government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis.” Froger added: “The battle against the coronavirus will not be won by sidelining a journalist who voiced legitimate concerns. There are no bad questions. This journalist was not guilty of any misconduct and his suspension is completely unjustified. He must be rehabilitated and must resume his position without delay.”In its conclusions, the CSLC also called for an end to threats and intimidation against other journalists and said there was “no evidence that Vox TV participated in a campaign to smear or defame the communication ministry or undermine the government’s effort to combat Covid-19.” The communication ministry’s statement about the Otouna affair had criticized the campaign waged by Vox TV, one of the country’s most popular TV channels, in support of Otouna and had described its coverage of the case as “fantasy.” News News Congo-BrazzavilleAfrica Protecting journalistsMedia independence Covid19Freedom of expression Congo celebrates World Press Freedom Day by sentencing a journalist to six months in prison May 4, 2021 Find out more Organisation Congo-BrazzavilleAfrica Protecting journalistsMedia independence Covid19Freedom of expression March 31, 2021 Find out more May 14, 2020 – Updated on June 8, 2020 Republic of Congo: State TV urged to reinstate news anchor sidelined after coronavirus interview March 5, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Arrest of man suspected of ordering killing of journalist Mauro Marcano

first_img Help by sharing this information New wave of censorship targeting critical media outlets News to go further News Reporters Without Borders hailed the recent arrest of Ceferino García, presumed head of a drug cartel, who is suspected of ordering the killing of journalist Mauro Marcano, on 1st September 2004. The organisation called for the investigation to be given a fresh boost, two years after the journalist’s death. January 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders welcomed the arrest in Trinidad-and-Tobago of Ceferino García, suspected head of a drug cartel, alleged to have ordered the murder of Mauro Marcano, presenter on local Radio Maturín 1.080 AM and columnist on the daily El Oriental. The organisation however condemned delays in the investigation and the failure to bring anyone to trial two years after the 1st September 2004 murder in Maturín, Monagas state in north-east Venezuela.“The arrest of Ceferino García is clearly good news if his implication in Mauro Marcano’s murder is established and his evidence moves the investigation forward,” the press freedom organisation said. “However in two years, five other people strongly suspected of involvement in the killing have never been arrested. Neither has the investigation probed the links between drug-trafficking and certain police and military authorities in Monagas state revealed by Marcano. No conviction has ever been obtained. The arrest of Ceferino García is the chance for the justice system to reopen the investigation and put an end to two years of impunity”, it said.”The Venezuelan authorities should promptly seek the extradition of the alleged drug-trafficker from their Trinidadian counterparts”, it added.Marcano was shot dead in the car park at his home after being ambushed by two men. He had exposed collusion in an editorial for El Oriental, between General Alexis Maneiro Gómez, (then head of Regional Comando 7), and other officers, with Ceferino García, suspected head of the Cartel del Sol (Sun cartel), a Colombian gang active on the country’s east coast.Marcano believed he was in danger, family members said, and two weeks before his death he had shared his fears with Venezuelan vice-president, José Vicente Rangel, himself a former journalist. He even named the officers who he believed were working with the cartel: Gen. Alexis Maneiro Gómez, Col. Juan Fabricio Tirry, head of the mission to the defence ministry and José Manuel del Moral, former chief of police in Monagas state. None of these men have ever been summoned by investigators.Ceferino Garcia was arrested in Port of Spain (capital of Trinidad-and-Tobago) in the last week of August 2006. His name was on a list of people being sought by Venezuelan police for the past year. Also on the list were his son, Carlos Andrés García Martínez, as well as Edgardo José Salazar and Henry Mendoza, the two suspected hired killers and an intermediary, Douglas Rocca Cermeño. His brother, Hector Rocca Cermeño, who agreed to collaborate with the justice system, has said that Ceferino García personally planned the killing and set aside 36,000 euros for the job.A spokesman for the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) told Reporters Without Borders in May 2005 that blocks had been put on the Marcano case. At the same time the judicial commission of the TSJ announced the suspension of some 15 judges suspecting of conniving with drug-traffickers.

US women’s soccer star Carli Lloyd says she’s considering kicking for NFL team

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — Carli Lloyd has nothing left to prove on the soccer pitch, so why not take your talents to the gridiron.The U.S. women’s national team star tells ABC News’ Good Morning America in an interview airing Wednesday that she’s considering trying out for a role as a kicker in the NFL.Lloyd became a viral sensation last week after video emerged of her kicking a 55-yard field goal at a Philadelphia Eagles practice.  “At first I was just casually doing it, until it blew up, and the more I think about it [and] speak with my husband and people at home, I am actually considering it,” she told GMA. “We’ll see what happens. Like anything, I would want to practice, get the right technique down, the right steps down, so for me I don’t want to go in there blindly. I want to make sure I practice it and just go to a field and attempt it.”Lloyd said she’s had two teams approach her about playing in their fourth preseason game, but she wouldn’t reveal them. The entire NFL wraps up the preseason on Thursday, though, which conflicts with a game for Lloyd’s club team, Sky Blue FC.“Some of my Sky Blue FC teammates say go for it. I haven’t really spoken to any of my national teammates yet,” Lloyd said. “I will see them very shorty. My husband, he’s in my corner; friends and family are in all my corner. They all believe I can actually do it and I believe in myself as well.”Lloyd was routinely kicking 40-yard field goals during the Eagles practice as well.Kicking an oblong football may not seem the same as a round soccer ball, but Lloyd says it’s not all that different.“The technique for kicking a field goal is actually pretty similar to kicking a long ball in soccer,” she said. “I spent 15 years or so breaking down my technique on the soccer field. It would not be different breaking this down with the right technique.”There have been a few female kickers in college football history, but none with much success. Katie Hnida, who played for New Mexico, may be the most famous. She was the first woman to score in a FBS game, but was just 2-for-3 on extra points and never attempted a field goal.No woman has ever kicked in the NFL.Lloyd, 37, has won two World Cups and two Olympic gold medals in her illustrious career.“I’m not sure if I’ll ever have a chance to win a Lombardi Trophy, but never say never,” Lloyd said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
