What journalists in France should do if questioned or investigated

first_img “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says France’s National Union of Journalists (SNJ) and Judicial Press Association (APJ) yesterday published a manual advising journalists in France on how to respond if they are summoned for questioning or are placed under investigation.Its release comes amid considerable concern within the French media about the fact that at least nine journalists – freelancers, journalists employed by leading media outlets and media bosses – have been summoned for questioning in recent weeks by France’s domestic intelligence agency, the DGSI.The manual – which answers such questions as “How should I react if I am summoned as a witness?”, “How should I react if I am placed in police custody” and “Could my office be searched?” – can be downloaded  from the SNJ and APJ websites. There are two versions, short and long.Most of the answers are based on the safeguards for journalists that are recognized by France’s 1881 press freedom law and article 10 (on freedom of expression) in the European Convention on Human Rights.  News Follow the news on France Help by sharing this information FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsProtecting sources Citizen-journalistsJudicial harassment Receive email alerts RSF_en News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story News News Organisation June 4, 2021 Find out more AFP June 26, 2019 What journalists in France should do if questioned or investigated May 10, 2021 Find out more to go further FranceEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsProtecting sources Citizen-journalistsJudicial harassment June 2, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

It will be a big step for me.”Sanders said that she has met her host family and described Kit and Gail Brendle as “cool.”“Most of the families host two girls but I was fortunate. There are three of us,” Sanders said. “One of my roommates is Mallory Jones from Crenshaw County. I already knew Mallory and we are friends. Our other roommate is Tayler Mazingo from Chilton County.

‘A period of heightened threat’: How law enforcement is responding to attacks on houses of worship

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(NEW YORK) — In a little over a month, there have been at least five attacks on houses of worship of three different faiths across the U.S., capped off with the deadly shooting at a California synagogue this weekend.On March 24, a little over a week after the deadly shooting at two mosques in New Zealand, there was a fire at a mosque in Escondido, California.Two days later, the first of three historically black churches was burned in Louisiana. Two more fires tied to the same suspect happened the following week.On April 17, two days after a fire burned the historic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the cause of which is still being determined, a man was arrested after entering St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City with two gasoline canisters, two bottles of lighter fluid and butane lighters.Deadly bombings at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter prompted a visible increase in police presence in front of churches in major American cities like New York.Finally, on April 27, there was a deadly shooting at a synagogue in a suburb of San Diego.“The reality is we are in a period of heightened threat,” said John Cohen, a former acting undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security and current ABC News contributor.“We are experiencing an increase in targeted attacks against people and places associated with religious worship and beliefs. That said, the FBI and state and local law enforcement are very aware of the threat and are working aggressively to address it,” Cohen said.The latest attack, where one woman was fatally shot and others were injured inside a Poway synagogue near San Diego, has led to increased security efforts across the country.In Chicago and Los Angeles, police spokespeople have confirmed that officers are doing more patrols and increasing their visibility around synagogues and other religious institutions in the wake of Saturday’s shooting.The same is true in the New York City area, which has more Jewish residents than in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv combined, according to multiple population reports. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday that he was directing state police to “increase their security presence at synagogues and houses of worship.”“We must come together during this troubling time to root out hate in all its forms and show the nation we will never be divided by these despicable acts of violence,” Cuomo said in a statement.Cohen said there are three ways that law enforcement can help secure houses of worship: outreach to local religious leaders, increased physical security and visible deterrents and covert surveillance like undercover officers.“This is a concern that has been elevated for some time. They have been tracking the increase in targeted acts of violence and hate crimes directed at both faith-based facilities as well as individuals because of their faith,” Cohen said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Alewijnse Marine sets up new facility in Den Helder

first_img View post tag: Alewijnse Marine Dutch system integrator Alewijnse Marine said it has opened a new service and maintenance facility in the port of Den Helder to support its activities at the Dutch Royal Naval dockyard and Damen Shipyards Den Helder.The company said this new facility will allow it to deliver its expertise in all types of electrical systems more quickly and efficiently to naval and commercial vessels.Alewijnse Marine has been working in Den Helder for several years, on contracts with both Damen Shipyards Den Helder and the Dutch Royal Navy.“What began with providing service on hybrid tugboats, expanded rapidly into delivering larger service and maintenance contracts, particularly for naval vessels,” the company explained.In the past, Alewijnse Marine has worked on the joint support ship (JSS) Zr. Ms. Karel Doorman and the amphibious transport ships Zr. Ms. Johan de Witt and Zr. Ms. Rotterdam.As part of the Zr. Ms. Karel Doorman’s maintenance work on the main engines which will last until summer 2017, Alewijnse was contracted by Defensie Materieel Organisatie (DMO) to install a wireless internet system on board.Besides work on naval vessels, Alewijnse also undertook a series of large electrical servicing and maintenance projects on research vessels, offshore support vessels and other ships.Alewijnse Service Manager Brigit Reichardt sees growth opportunities for the new service facility in Den Helder: “The opening of a new service hub in Den Helder is not only in response to the growing number of assignments from Damen Shipyards Den Helder and the Royal Dutch Navy, it is also in line with the ambition of the Port of Den Helder to develop its capabilities as important hub for maritime maintenance and services in the coming years.” View post tag: Den Helder View post tag: Damen Share this article Equipment & technology December 21, 2016 Alewijnse Marine sets up new facility in Den Helder Back to overview,Home naval-today Alewijnse Marine sets up new facility in Den Helder last_img read more
