April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF protests against the terms of the new press law (which retains prisonsentences for some offences) and calls for its amendment to make it lesssevere. Organisation Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) protested today against a new press law in Morocco that it said was “a serious threat to press freedom.” It was “unacceptable” that under it a journalist could be jailed for five years for a simple media offence,” said RSF secretary-general Robert Ménard, calling for its amendment to guarantee press freedom. RSF notes that the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and Opinion, Abid Hussain, in a report on 18 December 2000, urged all governments to ensure media offences were not punished by imprisonment except for those involving racist or discriminatory remarks or appeals for violence. He added that imprisonment for peacefully expressing an opinion was a serious violation of human rights.The new law retains jail terms for insulting the king and royal princes and princesses and those convicted can be imprisoned for between three and five years, compared with 5-20 years under the old law.Article 29 retains the government’s right to ban Moroccan or foreign newspapers if they “undermine Islam, the monarchy, national territorial integrity or public order.” The law also says the government must give reasons for seizing or banning local or foreign newspapers. Last year nine newspapers, seven of them foreign, were censored for having reported on topics such as Western Sahara, corruption and the king himself.Parliamentary deputies approved the new law on 12 March and it will be considered by the upper chamber, the House of Councillors, in the next few weeks. RSF also expressed concern about the unofficial sacking of journalist Younès Moujahid from the daily El Ittihad el Ichtiraki. Aides of prime minister Abderrahmane Youssoufi, who is managing editor of the paper, told the journalist, who is also secretary-general of the national press trade union SNMP, that he did not appreciate his criticism of the country’s counter espionage service, the DST, and of the new press law. Moujahid has not been paid since last month or been asked to write any articles.

In fact, plan exits fell to their lowest level in seven weeks as servicers found themselves in between March and April expiration volumes,” reported Black Knight. Starts hit their highest level in three weeks, but that was primarily due to re-starts, as a portion of the nearly half million homeowners who’d left forbearance in recent weeks likely reached out to their servicers to reinstate their plans. New-plan starts remain near post-pandemic lows, according to the researchers.Some 380,000 active plans have end-of-April expirations, so there remains the possibility for further improvement for the month.”Either way,” Black Knight’s authors wrote, “we’ll have a better picture of what the coming months might look like once those 380,000 are processed.”Compared to last month at this time, the number of active plans is down by 296,000 or 11.4%, which the experts at Black Knight call a “pretty considerable improvement.”As of this past Tuesday 2.3 million homeowners remain in COVID-19-related forbearance plans.That’s 4.4% of all mortgage holders in the country.

Chief Justice Ajay Kumar Mittal and Justice Vijay Kumar Shukla heard the petition filed by Democratic Lawyers’ Forum via video conferencing on Tuesday and Advocate General PK Kaurav informed the bench that State government is considering the issue of extending financial assistance to lawyers in need and sought a week’s time to apprise the Court regarding the same. Advocate Ravindra Gupta appeared on behalf of the petitioner forum and argued that the said lockdown may be extended beyond May 3 and as per the Advocates’ Act 1961, it’s the responsibility of Bar Council of India and as well as the State Bar Councils to ensure the welfare of advocates and smooth running of judicial system in the country and also to assist the Advocates in need. The petition states- “The lockdown has adversely affected the livelihood of nearly 1.5 lakh people whose livelihood depends upon the judicial system in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The enormous effect is apparently visible on the profession of advocates and Munshi, clerk, peons, typist, computer operator working with advocates including employees of Bar Associations (including court premises) & AG office . The judicial system has stopped working and indirectly affecting the poor and common man in the State also. Steps are also required to be taken under Disaster Management Act 2005 by State or Central Authorities.” The petitioner forum points out in the petition that “there seems to be sufficient funds with the State Bar Council of Madhya Pradesh under Advocate Welfare Fund” and that it collects “a huge amount during registration of advocates”. Funds can also be arranged by the State under Disaster Management Act 2005 which can be utilized under emergency measures for smooth running of the judicial system in the State of Madhya Pradesh, the petition contends. Thus, the forum seeks directions to provide the immediate help in cash or in kind, to affected persons in need whose livelihood directly depends on the judicial system i.e., advocates, their staff –clerks, munshi, typist, peons, employees of Bar Associations, typist/computer operator in court premises, employees of Advocate General Office etc.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

ABC News(EL PASO, TX) — Authorities suspect a virulent anti-immigration screed posted online before the El Paso shooting was written by the alleged gunman, a top police official indicated Sunday.Asked whether the attack was a hate crime, El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen told reporters during a news conference Sunday that authorities were still working to conclusively attribute what he called the “manifesto” to the attack, but said “it’s beginning to look more solidly like that is the case.”The four-page document was reportedly posted to online message boards less than an hour before the suspect, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, purportedly gunned down at least 20 people and injuring 26 others at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart on Saturday.The document decried what the author believed was an ongoing “invasion” of Texas by Hispanic people and what the author foresaw as the impending destruction of America. It suggested that the planned attack would give immigrants additional incentive to return to their countries of origin.Though the author indicated he did not consider himself a white supremacist, the document lambasted “race mixers” and said the U.S. should be split into territories based on race. While the document was critical of Republicans, it accused Democrats of using immigrants to engineer a nation-wide political coup.In the wake of the shooting, prominent critics of President Donald Trump accused the president of using language, like the word “invasion,” that has emboldened racists and white supremacists. The document posted online predicted the attack would be connected to Trump’s rhetoric, and the author said that his ideology predated Trump and hadn’t changed for years.On ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney referenced the document to make a similar point, saying, “This was a sick person… no politician is to blame for that.”Other defenders of the president said Trump should not be blamed for mass shootings, which have long been a problem in the U.S. “Finger-pointing, name-calling & screaming with your keyboards is easy, yet it solves not a single problem, saves not a single life,” senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted on Sunday.John Cohen, a former senior Department of Homeland Security official and current ABC News contributor, said he’s concerned the president’s rhetoric could still be a factor in extremist attacks in the U.S.Cohen said that while Trump’s hardline on immigration and incendiary rhetoric can mobilize and inspire his political base, “where this gets dangerous” is when it “may also serve to empower and inspire mentally unwell, violence-prone individuals who view the president’s words as giving them permission to commit acts of violence.”The document linked to the suspect appears to describe one of the weapons used in the shooting and goes into detail about the lethality of various assault rifle-style weapons and ammunition. It says that the attacker had been planning the assault for less than a month, which Cohen said underlines the challenge faced by law enforcement when it comes to discovering and stopping such plots.“It’s what the FBI and the Secret Service call ‘from flash to bang,’” Cohen said of the time between someone suddenly deciding to act and acting. “You can have somebody who’s anger is simmering for years, and then all of the sudden they hear something or something happens in their lives and they decide to act.In the document, the would-be attacker says that he would not be taken alive by police and feared having to live through a trial and receiving the death penalty.Crusius was captured by police after the shooting and a local prosecutor announced that he would file capital murder charges.John Bash, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas, said Sunday that federal authorities are investigating the incident as an act of “domestic terrorism,” meaning the suspect was allegedly intent on “coercing and intimidating a civilian population.”Bash said federal authorities are also considering bringing hate crimes and federal firearms charges against Crusius that carry the penalty of death.The mass shooting came less than 15 hours before another gunman killed nine people and wounded more than two dozen others in a popular business district in Dayton, Ohio.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

On the subject of translating the works, Warman added, “Translation is a particularly intense way of reading, because to translate something you really have to get inside the text. It’s incredibly stimulating, because you’re both reading and writing at the same time.“102 of us – tutors and their second-year students (who don’t have any exams) from lots of different colleges – translated the anthology this past summer term.’’â€¨The anthology was published on 7th January 2016 to mark the first anniversary of the shootings. It was launched at the annual conference of the British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, which supported the project, and it has received positive coverage in the press and online.â€¨The e-books are free to download, including links to the original French texts and in some cases, the original eighteenth-century edition.Dr Warman appealed to the “open-minded thinkers” of the future to read the texts.Flora Hudson, a second year French and Russian student, commented, “I think it’s a very effective and moving way for Oxford to mark the anniversary. Instead of focusing on the pain and grief following the attacks, it promotes tolerance in society, which is so important for multiculturalism in French culture.”â€¨Jake Smales, who studies French and Spanish at Pembroke College, told Cherwell, “I think it’s brilliant that everyone can access texts that are so important to the idea of free speech in France and across the world. Translation is in itself one step of bridging the barriers between nations and cultures, uniting all under the common values we share, both past and present.“It reminds us all of the importance of the power of speech, ideas and freedom over violence, which it seems we need to remember now more than ever. I hope people are aware of the e-books and have a read a few; especially as they’re free! They should start everyone talking and thinking about very relevant issues.” A group of Oxford academics has translated essays about free speech and then published them as free e-books in order to mark the first anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris.Lecturers and students have translated the works of Voltaire and other figures renowned for defending free speech to mark the murders of 12 Charlie Hebdo journalists last year.Dr Caroline Warman, associate professor in French at Jesus College, has led a group of more than 102 students and staff at Oxford who sought Oxford academics to produce their own version in English of the collection of essays called Tolérance: le combat des Lumières, produced by French academics after the attack by Islamic extremists.The professors and students translated the works of 18th Century writers and philosophers including Diderot, Montesquieu and Rousseau,â€¨as well as Voltaire, who all discuss topics including slavery, religious intolerance and the rights of individuals. The collection also includes Italian writer Cesare Beccaria.Dr Warman wrote on the ‘Adventures on the Bookshelf’ blog how “posters of Voltaire” and some of his polemical slogans about the importance of religious tolerance appeared “in the vigils and marches that followed the Charlie Hebdo assassinations”.She said, “Dozens of university lecturers in France who teach Voltaire and other 18th century writers, and who were all as distressed by the events and by the increasingly polarised politics that followed as anyone else, decided to put together an anthology of texts from the Enlightenment. This anthology would make available to everyone what writers of the time said about liberty, equality, and fraternity, about the importance of religious tolerance, about the rights of women, about the abomination of slavery, about the exploitation created by a system of global capitalism, and so on.“We in the UK wanted to support and applaud this initiative, and we wanted to extend its readership. So we decided to translate it. And we thought, who better to translate this texts than our students? They are the citizens, female and male, of today and tomorrow, they are deeply engaged in our world, and they are brilliant at languages.”
