first_img to go further September 17, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two years without an independent press Follow the news on Eritrea January 13, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak case Organisation EritreaAfrica Reports Eritreans have only been allowed to hear and read the official press for the past two years, ever since the government shut down all privately-owned publications. At least 14 journalists are still imprisoned and Reporters Without Borders calls again for their immediate release. News Receive email alerts News RSF urges Swedish judicial authorities to reverse Dawit Isaak decision News Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home? Reporters Without Borders today made a new appeal to the Eritrean government to free 14 of the country’s leading journalists imprisoned for the past two years and allow the independent media, which were all shut down in September 2001, to reopen at once.The press freedom organisation said the unique situation meant Eritreans had only had official news for two years, plus any foreign radio stations they could tune in to. The closures and arrests have made Eritrea the sole country in Africa and one of the very few in the world where only the government media is allowed.Eritrea is also the biggest prison for journalists in Africa. The authorities have given no information about where the 14 are imprisoned or what their conditions of detention are. Government ministers and members of the ruling party have several times called them “traitors” but none has been charged with any crime.The government ordered the closure of all privately-owned publications on 18 September 2001 and over the next few days at least 10 of their journalists were arrested and taken to the main police station in Asmara, the capital. They were Yusuf Mohamed Ali, editor of Tsigenay; Mattewos Habteab, editor of Meqaleh; Dawit Habtemichael, his deputy; Medhanie Haile (deputy editor) and Temesgen Gebreyesus (board member) of Keste Debena; Emanuel Asrat, editor of Zemen; Dawit Isaac and Fessehaye Yohannes, of the newspaper Setit; Said Abdulkader, of the magazine Admas, and a freelance photographer, Seyoum Tsehaye.The 10 began a hunger-strike on 31 March 2002 and in a letter smuggled out of jail said they were protesting against their illegal imprisonment and demanding their “right to justice” and a trial by a “fair and independent court.” They were transferred to an unknown place of detention on 3 April. In January and February 2002, three journalists from the government media were arrested: Hamid Mohamed Said and Saidia Ahmed, of the government TV station Eri-TV and Saleh al-Jezaeeri, of the government radio station Voice of the Broad Masses. No reason was given.Another journalist, Akhlilu Solomon, the local stringer for Voice of America, was arrested at his home on 8 July 2003. Officials said he had been taken to a military camp to do his compulsory national service. But VOA noted he had already done part of it and been exempted from the rest on medical grounds.

Takeaways from Syracuse’s first win of season over Colgate

first_img Published on November 13, 2019 at 9:07 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] | @Schafer_44 Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse (1-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) defeated Colgate (1-2) 70-54 in the Carrier Dome on Wednesday night. Buddy Boeheim led the Orange in scoring with 17 points while Bourama Sidibe added 12 points and 14 rebounds.  Below are three takeaways from the Orange’s first win of the season. Offense! After stumbling through its worst offensive performance since Word War II, Syracuse’s offense had life against the Raiders. The production came from everywhere, including near the hoop and beyond and the arc. Syracuse often set picks on the ball dribbler’s defender and off-ball screens opened up other opportunities. With a few set plays to help the offense move, Syraucse looked more like the offense it talked about after the Virginia game than it played like during it. Three Orange players scored double-digits while Hughes dished eight assists. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn its simplest form, the Orange just shot better than it did against the Cavaliers. SU shot 50.9% from the field including 7-of-17 from beyond the arc. It helped that looks were often more open. Quick passing moved the Raiders’ defenders out of position. Unlike against Virginia, which limited Syraucse’s ability to drive through packing its defense in near the paint, Syracuse guards attacked the basket. In some instances they sank contested layups but also used the drives as a way to create open space for shooters.Another big night for Sidibe against ColgateSidibe registered his lone double-double of last season against Colgate. On Wednesday, he registered his first of the 2019-20 season. Syracuse’s center owned the boards along with Marek Dolezaj (six rebounds). With the Raiders tallest player who saw consistent minutes matching Sidibe’s height of 6-foot-10 inches, the Mali native had a clear wingspan advantage. Sidibe’s boards often came off tipped balls to himself where he’d reach above another player and tap the ball to space so he could fully grasp it. On offense, Colgate left Sidibe open. As Orange players drove to the hoop, the player covering Sidibe often slid to the ball carrier quick, leaving time for a dump off to Sidibe standing beside the hoop. He sank several layups from that spot and also finished put back opportunities following missed Syracuse shots. Carey out, Girard in? Through two games Syracuse has had the same starting point guard, Jalen Carey, but that hasn’t meant much after tip. Boeheim yanked Carey early in the first half and he’d finish with five minutes of playing time. Joe Girard III subbed in for Carey. On Giarard’s first possession he and Hughes fumbled a transaction as Hughes threw the ball to a spot he hoped Girard would be cutting but instead the ball went out of bounds. The freshman settled in, though, including a string of plays in the second half. On the first, he sank a catch-and-shoot 3-pointer. On the next possession he caught the ball on the fast break and dished an alley-oop to Sidibe. Girard flexed and screamed as the crowd cheered the Orange prior to a Colgate timeout. Girard and Hughes, who also handles the ball up top at times, seemed to create more off their dribble than Carey had early in the game. After one play when Hughes drove, drew multiple defenders and sent the ball out for a Buddy 3-pointer, Boeheim marched straight to Carey and pointed to the court. Fellow freshman Brycen Goodine spelled Girard late in both halves and finished with 16 minutes played.  Commentslast_img read more

Fewer Jamaicans Denied Entry to T&T

first_img “According to the Passport Immigration and Citizenship Agency (PICA), 63 Jamaican nationals were denied entry (to Trinidad) in the first quarter of 2018, and while we can’t predict what will happen by the end of the year, certainly, if this trend continues, then the reduction continues,” she said. Story Highlights Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator the Hon. Kamina Johnson Smith, informed that 289 Jamaicans were refused entry by the twin-island republic in 2017, a reduction from the 416 persons in 2016. The number of Jamaicans being denied entry into Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) continues to decline.
