Journalist gets death threat for investigating war crimes

first_imgNews to go further CroatiaEurope – Central Asia December 2, 2020 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders expressed alarm today at a death threat to journalist Drago Hedl, of the satirical weekly Feral Tribune, and declared its “solidarity and support” for him and other Croatian journalists investigating war crimes.It called for an enquiry into the threats and for serious steps to protect the journalist from the “strong pressures” on him. Drago Hedl had criticised the role of Croatian generals in atrocities against Serbian civilians between 1991 and 1992. The journalist filed a complaint about the threats with police, who put his apartment and car under protection and offered him a bodyguard. News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive CroatiaEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Receive email alerts Drago Hedl received an anonymous letter at his home on 5 December made up of newspaper clippings and warning he would be killed like Milan Levar, a Serbian officer in the Croatian army killed in a bomb explosion in 2000 after giving evidence to the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) about the army’s war crimes. Drago Hedl reported the evidence of Croatian former soldier Krunoslav Fehir accusing ex-General Branimir Glavas, now a town councillor in Osijek, where Drago Hedl lives. A head of town’s municipal council, Anto Djapic, said journalists were not “sacred cows” and that it was “their problem if they tell lies.”Reporters Without Borders said that with recently-arrested Croatian General Ante Gotovina appearing today before the ICTY, it feared “more reprisals against the country’s journalists as they continue to reveal the alleged part played by former generals in war crimes against Serbs in Croatia,” Fines totalling 200,000 kunas (28,000 euros) imposed by a Zagreb court in 2001 threatened to close down Feral Tribune after the paper criticised a lawyer close to then-President Franjo Tudjman for saying Jews had provoked the Holocaust.

Former Councilman Recovering from Battle with COVID-19

Required fields are marked *center_img Business News In an interview with Pasadena Now, former District 4 City Councilman Steve Haderlein said on Tuesday that he and his daughter were infected with the Coronavirus.Haderlein served on the City Council from 1999 to 2011 and currently sits on the Rose Bowl Operating Company.According to Haderlein, his daughter also tested positive, and began to feel better several days before him. His wife never exhibited symptoms of the virus.Haderlein remains in quarantine.Haderlein said his symptoms lasted almost exactly 14 days. During that time he experienced serious fatigue that resulted in him sleeping 14 to 16 hours a day, headaches and a fever.“I wouldn’t call it a serious fever, but nonetheless a fever,” Haderlein said. “I never really got the chest pains and the coughing. I guess not everybody gets every symptom. I would say 10 of the 14 days I was sleeping most of the day. I was really sort of out of it.”According to the Centers for Disease Control up to 70 percent of the people infected with the virus experience fatigue.Haderlein said the virus did not feel like the regular flu.“It was much more — at least the set of symptoms that I had was much more fatiguing,” Haderlein said. “I was able to do some work from home and some work, but I was limited to a few hours. And then after that it was, it was almost all sleeping or napping or on my way to taking a nap. I mean, it was very fatiguing.”Doctors at Huntington Hospital tested Haderlein on March 23 after he woke up at 2 a.m. with a fever and the symptoms began to line up. The test came back positive a few days later.He was told to monitor his symptoms and his fever.“Fortunately I wasn’t having trouble breathing and I didn’t have a real high fever. I guess you’d call it a mild set of symptoms compared to what some of the people are unfortunately struggling with.”Haderlein has not been retested, but says he is at 100 percent. Due to the lack of tests, the city is not using a testing protocol to determine if a patient is recovered.According to Dr. Ying Ying Goh patients are cleared when they meet the CDC criteria of seven days after symptom onset or 72 hours after fever resolution and symptom improvement, whichever is longer.Goh called the criteria subjective.After he discovered he was infected with the virus, the former councilman allowed his employer at La Salle High School to use his name when officials there informed the school community that an employee had tested positive.The school provided a timeline of Haderlein’s last days on campus before distance learning began. It was determined Haderlein probably was infected after his last day on campus.The city’s health department determined the risk of spread of COVID-19 in the La Salle community due was low.Haderlein told Pasadena Now that a week before he began experiencing symptoms he traveled back east to help his daughter move home from college.Still he says he is not sure when he caught the virus.“I could’ve just picked it up around here,” Haderlein said. “It’s hard to know. That’s why it’s so important for everybody to quarantine and wash their hands and all that stuff.”Haderlein said the symptoms were worse than a previous bout he had with pneumonia.Haderlein said although he never experienced serious symptoms, he was worried about his symptoms advancing.“When you’re really not feeling well and maybe you start coughing or the temperature goes to 100.5 — not in the danger zone, but you’re kind of getting there, you start thinking oh, I really hope this doesn’t get worse.”The 56-year-old Haderlein who also coaches at La Salle remains in good shape which may have helped him fight off the virus.“I would say that the hospital workers and people giving the test. those people are superheroes. I mean, to be out there working, knowing what they’re dealing with and still get up in the morning and then go to work. Those people are superheroes.”Managing Editor André Coleman contributed to this story STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News Make a comment faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes HerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?

Halstead Street, according to Pasadena Fire Department officials and Los Angeles County booking records.She was taken into custody by a Pasadena Fire Department arson investigator Thursday afternoon following an investigation by the Verdugo Fire Investigation Task Force, made up of members of the Pasadena, Arcadia and San Marino fire departments, Pasadena Fire Department spokeswoman Lisa Derderian.The abandoned building is known to be occupied by transients often and has recently been the site of another, much smaller fire, officials said. Arredondo had not been linked to the previous blaze.Arredondo was initially booked on suspicion of attempted murder as well, due to the fact there were people inside the building at the time of the fire, Derderian said.But prosecutors filed only the arson-related charges, Santiago said.A motive for the alleged arson was not available.The flames caused an estimated $100,000 worth of damage to the building, which has since been deemed unsafe and leveled, along with buildings on the property that had been damaged in Wednesday’s fire, as well as previous fires, Derderian said.Firefighters arrived on scene quickly, as the burned building was just behind Pasadena Fire Station 3, Derderian said. It took firefighters just under 45 minutes to extinguish the flames, working from a defensive stance.The fire caused significant damage to storage containers and equipment on a neighboring Pasadena Water and Power facility.Arredondo’s bail amount was not available Monday afternoon. She was scheduled to return to the Pasadena branch of Los Angeles County Superior Court for a hearing on July 13, officials said.

Justice Chandrachud remarked, “If this court does not interfere today, we are travelling on the path of destruction. Forget this man (Goswami). You may not like his ideology. Left to myself, I will not watch his channel. Keep aside everything. If this is what our state governments are going to do to people who are to be nailed, then the Supreme Court has to intervene. There has to be a message to HCs- Please exercise your jurisdiction to uphold personal liberty. We are seeing case after case. HCs are failing to exercise jurisdiction. People are in jail for tweets!”. Arnab Goswami Case : ‘If This Court Does Not Interfere Today, We Are Travelling On Path Of Destruction’, Says Justice Chandrachud The Court had directed the Raigad police to ensure the compliance of the order of release forthwith, on execution of a personal bond for an amount of Rs 50,000/- by the accused-Petitioner.Goswami was remanded to Judicial custody by the CJM, Alibag, last Wednesday. He was kept at a local school which has been designated as a COVID-19 centre for the Alibaug prison. On Sunday, he was shifted to Taloja prison in Mumbai after the police alleged that Goswami used mobile phone in custody without permission. He is accused of abetting the suicide of a 52-year old interior designer named Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud Naik. The Raigad police had closed the case in April 2019 saying that they did not find evidence against the accused named in the suicide note, including Goswami. However, in May this year, Anvay’s daughter approached the Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh seeking the case be reopened. Goswami had filed a writ of habeas corpus before the Bombay High Court, stating that the criminal proceedings against him were politically motivated and his arrest was illegal. A division bench comprising Justices SS Shinde and MS Karnik however dismissed the interim applications observing that no prima facie case was made out to exercise the extraordinary jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. The Supreme Court has now observed that the High Court was in error in relegating the Petitioner to alternate remedy. The observation was made ahead of hearing of Goswami’s regular bail application by the Alibag Session Court. The Sessions Court had heard the revision petition filed by Raigad police seeking police custody of Arnab Goswami on Tuesday. It had reserved order and had listed it for pronouncement of verdict tomorrow, i.e. Thursday. The Sessions Court had posted the regular bail application filed by Arnab Goswami for tomorrow. The bail application was filed on Monday ahead of the Bombay HC rejecting his interim bail application. Read related reports: “Judging Is My Life.

Anger at Catz over room ballot manipulation

first_imgSecond-year student Tom Goulding told Cherwell, “The ballot was indeed a shame for those involved, whose living arrangements aren’t quite as they liked. What was a bigger embarrassment was those who were never involved in the slightest, assumed faux outrage on behalf of people they don’t know.” Those responsible for the incident are unknown. Ainsley’s email cautioned students, “I do not advocate a ‘witch hunt’ for those involved.” Typical St Catz ballot procedure entails students entering into a ballot in groups of up to four; students then select a room according to their place in the ballot. Allegedly, a group of students falsely informed staff organising the room picking that another group wished to move rooms, enabling the former group to take their place. One St Catz student commented, “The ballot was unfair, but the reaction of mock hysteria was a joke. It made the whole college look childish. It should have been dealt with by the people involved and the college office.” An undergraduate told Cherwell, “He tried to lead a witch hunt to track down the perpetrators and ultimately had to delete his post when things turned nasty.” St Catherine’s  students have reportedly tried to gain another group’s rooms illicitly through the first-year room ballot. Ainsley expressed disappointment in the actions of those involved, continuing, “Personally, this ballot process took a great deal of time for me to organise and to try and keep fair and open, and it is a shame that my efforts were undermined by people trying to twist a fair system.”center_img A St Catz student told Cherwell, “My understanding of what happened is that someone pretended they were someone else when noting down their names for new rooms, thus moving someone somewhere where they hadn’t chosen to be. An email sent to St Catz students by JCR Vice President Ashleigh Ainsley said, “It has been reported to me that there wasn’t a correct following of the previous conventions and rules of the ballot process.” “It’s all very confusing and nobody is really sure who was responsible; all that is known is that one girl got separated from all her friends and is now living alone next year because of the actions of some other people.”The issue was exacerbated by a post on the St Catz JCR Facebook page, later deleted, that said, “If you want my honest opinion, what happened today is absolutely disgusting.” Goulding added, “Invoking the hilarious ‘college spirit’ and labelling those involved as ‘anti-Catz’ is deeply enjoyable to watch, as people try to create a façade of one big happy college family, forcing people into a community they’ve artificially created. Any notion of ‘the concept of Catz’ is sweet but misguided.” Catz’ JCR President was unavailable for comment.last_img read more
