Charges dropped against freelance journalist Elena Bondar

first_imgNews “In recent months, it has started a general offensive mainly targeting the new media and including significant expansion of online filtering, greater surveillance and a number of arrests. The authorities were caught short by the uprisings in the Arab world and are now making up for lost time, even though no protests or demonstrations are threatening them right now.“The ‘Arab Spring’ or national security cannot in any circumstances be used as a pretext for censorship,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. Online censorship seems to be a new regional priority. An informal summit meeting of the Collective Security Treaty Organisation (CSTO) (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Russia and Tajikistan) on 12 August in Astana (Kazakhstan) agreed to make the body an “effective barrier against all risk of revolutionary contagion in the region,” according to the Russian daily paper Kommersant. September 8, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Charges dropped against freelance journalist Elena Bondar News RSF_en UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia February 11, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders is concerned by the growing regional trend towards online censorship and calls on regional governments to fall in line with the 1 June 2011 declaration on freedom of expression by special rapporteurs of the United Nations, the OSCE, the Organisation of American States and the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights, that Internet access should be universal. The Uzbek government approved on 5 August the setting up of a “committee of experts on information and mass communication” to monitor the country’s media. The “experts” are all government employees and the committee’s purely repressive job is to hunt down publications putting out “destructive and negative news likely to influence the social conscience of citizens,” to undermine “national cultural traditions,” to call for “violent overthrow of the established political order” and to incite people to “hatred.” The committee focuses on the new media and “satellite systems,” seriously threatening foreign TV stations, which are widely received in Uzbekistan with dishes. “Will Uzbekistan follow the frightening path taken by neighbouring Turkmenistan?” Reporters Without Borders asked, noting that the Turkmen regime last week ordered a drastic reduction in the number of satellite dishes on the pretext that they “spoiled the look of buildings.”The new Uzbek “committee of experts” is the latest addition to the government’s already well-developed surveillance apparatus. It will specifically analyse and interpret data collected by the Centre for Monitoring Mass Communications and eventually suggest new laws. The committee also clearly shows the regime’s intention to block any online challenge to it, as displayed by official statements in recent months condemning “destructive forces” and a supposed “campaign of provocation” against the government online.This policy was dramatically shown by the unprecedented blocking on 9 August, on the eve of the “Internet Festival of the national domaine UZ” to mark the 20th anniversary of the country’s independence , of more than 50 major websites, including the New York Times, Reuters, Bloomberg and news portals, as well as search-engine Google, the Reporters Without Borders site and the Soviet sports news site Most were accessible again after three days. Uzbek opposition and independent news sites have been blocked for a long time. Websites based in neighbouring Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan have also been censored by the Uzbek authorities.“The government’s decision to launch its own social networking site, (‘dialogue’) on 1 September is another worrying sign of a crackdown on Internet users,” Reporters Without Borders said. Officials at a press conference held by Uzbektelekom on 19 August said the new network was aimed at the “moral” education of Uzbeks, to counter the popularity of foreign social network sites. Facebook has 82,220 members in Uzbekistan the government would like to monitor by luring them to join Moloqot.Some mobile phone companies, such as Beeline and Sharktelekom, are suspected of going along with this censorship. The use of proxies or virtual private networks (VPN) are growing among users who want to be secure as arbitrary arrests increase.Contributors to the popular forum were arrested recently after commenting online about the Arab uprisings. Human rights activist Saida Kurbanova was picked up on 15 August after posting online last March an article criticising the compulsory use of government credit cards. She is reportedly being sued for defamation. Independent journalist Elena Bondar was arrested on 22 August as she returned from a training course in Kyrgyzstan organised by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). She was freed after CDs, flash-drives and videos she was carrying were seized from her, on the pretext that they were “undeclared” goods.”“She is becoming well-known in the independent media and her arrest is clearly a bid to intimidate her or drive her into exile,” a contributor to Uznews told Reporters Without Borders. Help by sharing this information to go further Uzbek blogger facing possible 10-year jail termcenter_img Follow the news on Uzbekistan News UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders notes that the Uzbek authorities have dropped all charges againstElena Bondar, a freelance journalist who was briefly detained at Tashkent airport on 22 Auguston her return from an OSCE journalism seminar in neighbouring Kyrgyzstan (see below).Bondar was summoned to the customs department at the airport on 5 September and was toldthat there would be no criminal proceedings because experts had found no problematic contenton the USB flash drives and other electronic material confiscated from her at the airport.Bondar was also told that, instead of civil proceedings, she was just being giving a “warning” forfailing to declare this material, which was returned to her. The head of the customs investigationbureau, Yakub Mirzarakhimov, added that she should “not count on our being so lenient nexttime.”Reporters Without Borders is relieved by this outcome but wonders about the reason for theU-turn. “It seems the authorities decided that a warning would suffice in this case but theproceedings originally initiated against Bondar will already have sent a strong intimidatory signalto all the young journalists who would like to do independent reporting or attend OSCE seminars.”————————————————————————————–29.08.2011 Freelance journalist Elena Bondar under investigationElena Bondar, a freelance journalist who was briefly detained at Tashkent airport on 22 August,has been notified that she is to be prosecuted for not declaring the professional material that wasseized from her at the time, and that the material is to be examined by a censorship committee.“The seizure of Bondar’s data already constituted a grave violation of the confidentiality ofjournalists’ sources,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The accusations now being made againsther are the typical reaction of an oppressive regime that wants absolute control over news andinformation.”When interrogated again for three hours on 27 August, Bondar was told that she is to beprosecuted under an article of the customs law and an article of the civil code for failing to declarethe four USB flash drives, three CDs and two video cassettes that were taken from her when shelanded at Tashkent airport on 22 August. She is facing a possible fine on these charges.At the same time, this material is to be examined by the “Committee of Experts on Informationand Mass Communication,” the latest new-generation media monitoring body (see below), to seeif it contains any “attack on the constitutional order” or any “banned religious, extremist, separatistor fundamentalist” propaganda.These are criminal offences that carry long prison sentences and, knowing the government’spropensity to regard any independent reporting in the worst possible light, Reporters WithoutBorders is very worried by this development.When Bondar was arrested on 22 August, she had just returned from a journalism training coursein Kyrgyzstan that was arranged by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. Shehas had to undertake not to leave the country until the current judicial proceedings are completed.————————————————————————————–25.08.2011 Regime steps up online control and media crackdownReporters Without Borders today deplored “extremely worrying” moves by the Uzbek government to control the free flow of news in the country, notably by setting up a new official body to curb the media.“The regime already directly controls all print and traditional broadcast media and has filtered from the locally-received Internet most independent sources of news about central Asia,” it said.

ION Geophysical Corporation (NYSE: IO) today announced a new 3D multi-client program in Argentina’s Neuquén Basin.  ION is nearly tripling the size of its Vaca Muerta program to 25,000 sq km over one of the most prospective unconventional plays in the world, which is estimated to hold 16 billion barrels of recoverable hydrocarbons.  The first phase of the program is complete with twenty-five seamlessly merged 3D data sets comprising a single 9,000 sq km depth volume.  The second phase of the program is in progress and will increase the project size to 25,000 sq km by merging an additional 60+ surveys and incorporating 150+ wells.  Future interpretation studies derived from this information will provide the framework for a basin-wide understanding of all major intervals in addition to the Vaca Muerta Formation.“Oil and gas companies are investing billions of dollars to explore and develop this world-class unconventional resource,” said Joe Gagliardi, Senior Vice President of ION’s Ventures group.  “Many operators are active in the area and our project underwriters agree that a large-scale program will improve understanding of the basin architecture as a whole, and how the Vaca Muerta fits into the larger exploration picture.  ION has repeatedly demonstrated its unique ability to rapidly and cost-effectively provide a cohesive view of basin-wide systems using existing 3D seismic and well data.” Source: Company Press Release The first phase of the program is complete with twenty-five seamlessly merged 3D data sets comprising a single 9,000 sq km depth volumelast_img read more

Rooney apologised to team-mates

first_img Press Association “It was probably the right decision. I saw the West Ham player making a counter-attack and I tried to break-up the play, but I just misjudged it. “I think everyone knew (I was in the wrong), so I am just grateful that the lads were able to hold on.” Rooney had a reputation as something of a hot head in his early years, but this was the first time he had been sent off for United in five-and-a-half years. The 28-year-old, whose dismissal came the day before the 10th anniversary of his United debut, is aware questions about his temperament will be raised again following the sixth red card of his career. “I expect people to say that, but at the end of the day, I was trying to break up the play,” he said. “It was a dangerous situation in that they were trying to break on us and I have just misjudged it, simple as that, but I have no complaints.” When asked whether he felt the need to apologise to Downing, Rooney said: “No. I haven’t absolutely volleyed the lad. “I have tried to trip him up and, to be fair to him, he got further away from me and that is why my leg is straighter than it should have been. “As he pushed the ball away, my leg has straightened out and that is obviously why the referee has deemed it as a red card.” Rooney started off the match in fine fashion, clipping the ball past Adrian from a Rafael cross to put United ahead. Robin van Persie then doubled United’s lead before Sakho headed in a goal for West Ham to put the home fans on edge. Rooney will play for England in next month’s Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia, but he will not turn out for United until the first weekend of November, when United play bitter rivals Manchester City. Rooney is not looking forward to watching United from the stands. “That’s the most disappointing thing,” said the striker, who has scored three times for the club this term. “Obviously we got away with it today by getting the win, but I am really gutted that I am going to be missing the next three games. “It is hard to take. “It helps that the England games are coming up, but the training here is really good. “It is tough and it is getting my fitness up there, so I just have to make sure I train well and be ready for when I come back.” Shaw, who left Old Trafford with a black eye following the alleged elbow by Sakho, thinks Rooney should have stayed on the pitch. ”We have actually had a lot of bad luck, especially with Wazza’s red card as I would say there was a handball before that but the referee didn’t stop play,” said the 19-year-old, who was making his United debut. West Ham captain Kevin Nolan was unhappy with linesman Andrew Garratt for flagging him offside when he turned in Carl Jenkinson’s cross in the 89th minute. ”I know he has definitely gambled on it because he can’t have seen it, because if he had seen it he wouldn’t have given it offside,” Nolan said. Louis van Gaal’s second win as Manchester United manager against West Ham was overshadowed by Rooney’s dismissal, which came in the second-half of an ill-disciplined match at Old Trafford. In an incident which was not seen by the officials at the time, Luke Shaw was allegedly headbutted off the ball by Diafra Sakho, who may now face retrospective punishment, and referee Lee Mason struggled to keep a lid on tensions at times in the second half. The biggest decision the referee made came in the 59th minute when he sent off Rooney for cutting down West Ham midfielder Downing as he sprinted down field. West Ham manager Sam Allardyce branded the foul “crazy and irresponsible” while Rooney had no complaints about his dismissal. Rooney was glad United held on for a 2-1 win and after the final whistle the captain apologised to his players in the dressing room. “Yeah, of course I did (apologise),” the United striker said. Rooney now looks set to miss United’s games against Everton, Chelsea and West Brom through suspension. When asked whether he would appeal against his ban, the England skipper said: “No. I understand it (the punishment). “I knew at the time that I misjudged it. “It is a red card and I don’t it will benefit anyone to appeal against the decision. Wayne Rooney apologised to his Manchester United team-mates for his reckless lunge on Stewart Downing and has no plans to appeal the red card which he admits he fully deserved. last_img read more
