Rugby World Cup referees set to crack down on diving and faking

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Also, French winger Yoann Huget was warned by European Professional Club Rugby after feigning injury while playing for Toulouse against Bath last season.“It is very, very important that we keep our values,” Jeffrey, the former Scotland international, added. “Referees have been asked to sanction very heavily on that.” The Rugby World Cup match officials committee has told referees to crack down on diving and players faking injuries as the sport tries to move away from what it describes as the “football culture”.Referees will dish out yellow cards to players going down too easily, while citing commissioners can retrospectively issue warnings, with sport.co.za reporting that a ban may befall the player after three cautions.>>> Rugby World Cup fixturesCommittee chief John Jeffrey told a press conference that players pressuring referees into making decisions will also be punished.“There is a culture creeping in. I call it the football culture of simulation, people appealing to referees, players – and it has happened a couple of times – diving,” said Jeffrey. Players caught diving, feigning injury or pressuring the referee into making decisions will be cautioned at the Rugby World Cupcenter_img “That is going to be sanctioned very heavily in this tournament.”While diving is still not a huge issue in rugby, incidents have seemingly crept into the game – notably Argentinian fly-half Nicolas Sanchez, who was accused of diving after the incident that saw Australia’s Michael Hooper banned for one game for striking the player.

Bahraini and Syrian authorities try to impose news blackout, kidnapping in Yemen

first_img News October 14, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts RSF_en June 15, 2020 Find out more to go further BahrainMiddle East – North Africa BAHRAINReporters Without Borders condemns the Bahraini government’s attempts to impose a news blackout on the ongoing demonstrations and the police crackdown. Closure of opposition media, forced resignation of senior media personnel, harassment of local journalists and foreign TV crews, intimidation of Bahrainis who talk to foreign journalists, arrests of bloggers, government propaganda and military court orders – the authorities are resorting to all possible means to limit coverage of the protests and to smear their organizers and participants.Yesterday, the information ministry announced the closure of Al-Wasat, an opposition newspaper founded in 2002. Access to its online version was also blocked. The day before, the national television programme “Media Watch” had accused Al-Wasat of trying to harm Bahrain’s stability and security and of disseminating false information that undermined the country’s international image and reputation.The Information Affairs Authority, the government agency that regulates the media, subsequently gave Al-Wasat permission to resume publishing from today but three of its most senior journalists – editor Mansour Al-Jamari, managing editor Walid Nouihid and local news editor Aqil Mirza – were forced to resign. The board of directors announced the appointment of Abidily Al-Abidily to replace Jamari as editor.Jamari told the Associated Press that the government was trying to silence independent media in Bahrain.The International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) meanwhile reported that the military prosecutor general issued a decree on 28 March – Decision No.5 of 2011 – under which the publication of any information about ongoing investigations by military prosecutors was banned on national security grounds (http://www.fidh.org/Bahrain-risk-of-blackout-on-human-rights). The decree reinforces the arsenal of measures that authorities can use to silence any reporting about human rights violations.CNN journalists Scott Bronstein and Taryn Fixel were briefly detained on 29 March while interviewing Nabeel Rajab, the head of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, at his home.Reporters Without Borders also condemns the harassment of Bahraini bloggers. Photos of bloggers and human rights activists labelled as “traitors to the homeland” have been circulating on the Internet for several days. They include Mahmood Al-Yousif and Manaf Al-Muhandis, who were arrested on 30 March and were released the following day.Mohamed Al-Maskati, who blogs under the name of Emoodz, is still being held in an unknown location since his arrest also 30 March. After blogging actively in the past few weeks and posting videos of recent events on his blog (http://emoodz.com/) and on Twitter (http://twitter.com/emoodz), he was threatened by a presumed member of the royal family, Mohd Al-Khalifa (https://twitter.com/#!/MohdSAlkhalifa). Since his arrest, he has been able to contact his family only once, on 31 March.Khalifa meanwhile continues on Twitter (https://twitter.com/#!/MohdSAlkhalifa/status/54630188465655808) to threaten anyone calling for Makati’s release: “#FreeEmoodz anyone that’s living in Bahrain and is supporting the terrorist emoodz, will have his IP address taken and will get arrested!”There is still no news of Ali Abdulemam and Sayid Yousif Al-Muhafdah, two bloggers who disappeared on 16 March, and Abduljalil Al-Singace, a blogger who was arrested the same day. The blogosphere has reported the silence of several of its members without knowing whether they have been arrested or have gone into hiding to escape the police crackdown. Reporters Without Borders urges the government to end its hate campaign against bloggers and to immediately release all those it is holding.SYRIAJournalists working for foreign media targetedThe Associated Press reported that two of its correspondents in Syria were ordered to leave the country on 1 April. They were given one hour to comply. The Jordanian media meanwhile reported that the Syrian authorities arrested two journalists working for Arab Broadcasting Services, Akram Abu Safi and Sobhie Naeem Al-Assal, on 24 March. In all, a total of six journalists have now been deported.Reporters Without Borders condemns the way the authorities are treating the journalists who are covering the street protests taking place in Syria and urges them to release all of the Syrian journalists that are currently detained.“Whether Syrian or foreign, the journalists covering the demonstrations must not be regarded as participants,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They are there just to report what is going on. Nonetheless, they are the victims of a crackdown by the government, which is trying to block access to information by imposing a media blackout. The arrests and disappearances are part of an unacceptable policy of intimidating the media.”Reuters reported that Khaled al-Hariri, a Syrian photographer working for the agency, was released yesterday after being held for six days in Damascus. Three other Reuters journalists – two Lebanese and a Jordanian, were also released in the past few days, after being arrested. Reuters had lost contact with Hariri on 29 March. Aged 50 and based in Damascus, Hariri was the last Reuters employee still being held by the Syrian authorities. Suleiman Al-Khalidi, the Reuters correspondent in Amman, was released on 1 April. Reuters TV producer Ayat Basma and cameraman Ezzat Baltaji were expelled on 28 March after being held for two days. Khaled Ya’qoub Oweis, a Jordanian journalist who had been the agency’s Damascus correspondent since 2006, had his accreditation withdrawn on 25 March.A number of Syrian journalists and bloggers have also been arrested. According to the London-based Syrian Human Rights Monitoring Centre, Doha Hassan, a journalist who works for several websites, and Zaher Omareen were arrested on 27 March. Reporters Without Borders has been told that they are being held at the headquarters of the General Directorate for State Security in Damascus.Despite the announced lifting of the state of emergency and the release of 260 detainees, the Kurdish blogger Kamal Hussein Sheikou, the blogger Ahmed Hadifa and the journalist and writer Mohamed Dibo are all still detained. They have been held since the start of the protests.Mohamed Radwan, an Egyptian blogger with US citizenship who had been working in Syria for the past nine months as an engineer, was released on 1 April after being arrested on 25 March and held incommunicado. The Syrian authorities accused him of spying for Israel and, using a procedure beloved of the Iranian government, showed him on national television making a “confession.” His family dismissed the charges as nonsense (see: http://www.aolnews.com/2011/03/28/family-of-us-prisoner-mohamed-radwan-i…).As a result of Syrian government pressure, the signal of Orient TV, a privately-owned TV station broadcasting from the United Arab Emirates, has repeatedly been suspended on Nilesat and Arabsat, two of the satellite services that normally carry it. An Orient TV representative told Reporters Without Borders that the station has changed its broadcast frequency several times since the start of the unrest in Syria in mid-March. “Since 25 March, we have only been broadcasting on the Internet three times a day,” he added. The station’s employees have also been harassed.YEMENAbdelghani Al-Shamiri, the former news director of the state-owned radio and TV service, was kidnapped by national security officials while on his way home on 31 March in Sanaa and was taken to an unidentified location. He was released the next day after pressure from the Union of Journalists. Shamiri recently resigned from his positions within the ruling party and declared his support for the protesters who have been calling for President Ali Abdallah Saleh’s resignation. Thereafter, he had been getting many messages threatening him or members of his family with reprisals if he continued to support the opposition movement.Samia Al-Aghbary, a woman journalist, has also received many threatening phone calls.LIBYAReporters Without Borders reiterates its concern about three Al-Jazeera journalists – Mauritian reporter Ahmed Vall Ould el-Dine, Norwegian photographer Ammar Al-Hamdane and British photographer Kamel Al-Tallou’ – who were arrested in early March and are still being held by pro-Gaddafi forces in the west of the country. A fourth Al-Jazeera journalist who was arrested at the same time, Tunisian reporter Lotfi Messaoudi, was released on 31 March and has returned to Tunisia. Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate release of the other three.OMANAmnesty International reports that an Omani journalist, Ahmed Al-Shizawi (http://www.amnesty.name/fr/library/asset/MDE20/001/2011/fr/6ab09b07-0875…), was arrested on 29 March in Sohar while participating in a sit-in with human rights and opposition activists.

The Division Bench of Justice Hima Kohil and Justice Subramonium Prasad has issued notice to the Ministry of Human Resource Development and the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment. Moved by law students Prateek Sharma and Diksha Singh, the petition has also asked the Central Government to ensure that examinations are only conducted after ensuring that all students have received identical and complete educational instructions. Due to COVID19, many colleges and Universities have started imparting online teaching. However, the Petitioner argues, the government has taken no steps to consider the need of the visually impaired and specially abled individuals (auditory impairment). The petition states that: ‘Due to this non-consideration, students at all levels who are visually impaired and/or specially abled (auditory impairment) find themselves in worsening educational condition and effectively have been left to fend for themselves during this period of hardship.’ Citing the current system of imparting education as discriminatory towards the persons with special needs, it is the duty of the state to ensure that such students receive the same standard of education. However, the Petitioner claims, both the government and the Universities have neglected this issue and have adopted a very non serious and nonchalant approach. Therefore, the Petitioner has asked for court’s direction to ensure that an effective mechanism for conducting evaluation of specially-abled students is set up with immediate effect and without prejudice to their educational endeavors. In addition to this, the Petitioner also wants the government to call for suggestions from respective stakeholders, experts and organizations which are working in the field of providing education at all levels to the specially-abled and visually/auditory impaired students.
