Don’t put the Guatemalan press in quarantine! RSF_en News August 21, 2020 Find out more May 8, 2020 Find out more to go further Organisation Víctor Hugo Juárez, a journalist and businessman who owned two online media, Wanima News and Guatemala Empresarial, was found murdered on 27 September at the home of a friend, Byron Dávila Díaz, who was also killed. The news agency Cerigua said both men appeared to have been tortured and strangled. The motive is not yet known. Juárez had worked for two dailies, Siglo XXI and Nuestro Diario, in the past.Although the assumption seems to be that Juárez’s murder was not linked to his work as a journalist, Reporters Without Borders urges the police to investigate this possibility. Guatemala continues to be a dangerous country for journalists even if there have been fewer cases of violence involving media personnel this year.The police should definitely work on the assumption that the theft of computer equipment and files from journalist Marvin David Del Cid’s home on 28 September was linked to his work for the daily elPeriódico. Del Cid has been working on several sensitive stories including alleged irregularities in a government arms acquisition, suspected corruption in a government solidarity fund and a drug-trafficking case.Journalists can pay dearly for covering this kind of story. During a previous break-in at Del Cid’s home on 24 June, the words “You are going to die” were left on his bathroom mirror. Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to provide him with adequate protection.

Limerick City and County Council have informed Willie O’Dea TD that they have agreed to carry out a feasibility study on the need for a pedestrian crossing on the Old Cratloe Road at the entrance to Shannonvale.Willie O’Dea TD said, “Many residents of Shannonvale and surrounding areas had requested that a pedestrian crossing be placed outside their estate.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Myself and Pat O’Neill have since met with senior engineers within the Council and have now been assured that a feasibility study will be done in the area and if a pedestrian crossing is warranted, the Council will apply for funding from the Department to do the job.The news has been welcomed by Local Fianna Fáil activist Pat O’Neill as well as the Fianna Fáil TD who have been working on the issue on behalf of local residents.Pat O’Neill who had helped secure the pedestrian crossing on the Clonmacken road said, “It was imperative that we acted as soon as residents brought this issue to our attention. The safety of local residents is paramount as there are a lot of elderly residents and young families living within the estate and for them to enjoy the convenience of the local amenities, their safety in crossing what is a very busy road needs to be taken into account.Pat concluded, “We have speed ramps in the area, but these are not serving their purpose and I have also asked the council to look at the height and shape of these, as some have caused damage to the undercarriage of cars due to being so severe.” Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow TAGSLimerick City and CountyNewspolticisShannonvaleTransport NewsPoliticsTransportFeasibility Study approved for for road safety measures at ShannonvaleBy Staff Reporter – June 18, 2019 224 Facebook Previous articleLeggy Limerick & Stars of the Future- Talking points after Tipperary defeatNext articleTies between Shannon Free Zone and the Chinese Government stronger than ever Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedin WhatsApp Twittercenter_img Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Print Limerick on Covid watch list RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Email Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?last_img read more
