The Bench however refrained from taking any action against the channels and proceeded to issue guidelines for reporting of ongoing investigations in the future.Disposing of a batch of PILs seeking regulation of media trial, the bench laid down several guidelines on reporting on crime. Some of the key observations are :Trial by media interferes with the criminal investigation by police.Media trial runs counter to the program code framed under the Cable TV Act.Press Council of India guidelines on crime reporting made applicable to electronic media as well.Media should observe restraint in discussions about on going investigation so as not to prejudice the rights of the accused and witnessPublishing a confession alleged to have been made by an accused as if it is an admissible evidence without letting the public know about its inadmissibility should be avoided While reporting suicide, to suggest that the person was of weak character, should be avoidedReconstructing of crime scenes, interviews with potential witnesses, leaking sensitive and confidential information should be avoidedInvestigative agencies are entitled to keep secrecy about the on going investigation and they are under no obligation to divulge information. What kind of reporting amounts to “media trial”?

Bombay High Court Gives GuidelinesDuring the hearing of the matter over last six months, the High Court had expressed concerns over the practice of “media trial”. It asked the media not to cross boundaries, and indicated that it will lay down guidelines. “If you become the investigator, prosecutor and the judge, what is the use of us? Why are we here”, the bench had asked the Advocates representing Republic TV. ‘Asking Public About Who To Be Arrested Is Investigative Journalism?’ Bombay HC Asks Republic TV In SSR Media Trial Case “Is this part of investigative journalism? Asking public about their opinion on who should be arrested? When a case is under investigation and the issue is whether it’s a homicide or a suicide and a channel is saying it is murder, is that investigative journalism?”, the bench had asked Advocate Malvika Trivedi, Republic TV’s lawyer. The bench told the channel’s lawyer “investigative powers are given to the police under the CrPC”. Media Highly Polarized Now; Journalists Were Responsible & Neutral In Past, Bombay High Court Says While Hearing SSR Media Trial CaseThe Bombay High Court was pronouncing its verdict on a clutch of PILs seeking guidelines for “ethical reporting and responsible journalism,” by all form of media, especially at the investigation stage. The first PIL was filed by eight retired IPS officers, in September, last year. They were irked by the manner in which the Mumbai Police force’s reputation was being tarnished in a highly politicised investigation and a ‘trial by media’ into film star Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide. This is probably the first time top officers (all Director General level and the time of retirement) – M N Singh, P S Pasricha, K Subramanyam, D N Jadhav, D Shivanandan, Sanjeev Dayal, S C Mathur and K P Raghuvanshi- have approached the court. The other PILs are filed by filmmaker Nilesh Navalkha and others, Advocate Asim Suhas Sarode (party-in-person), an NGO named ‘In Pursuit of Justice’ and beleaguered film producer Prerna Arora. During the hearings, the bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni had made strong oral remarks criticizing the pattern of reporting a few media houses followed in the Sushant Singh Rajput case. “We would like [the] media not to cross boundaries,” the bench had observed. If you become the investigator, prosecutor and the judge, what is the use of us? Why are we here””If you are so interested in unearthing the truth, you should have looked at the CrPC! Ignorance of law is no excuse”The bench also asked the lawyer of Republic TV if asking the public who should be arrested in a case is part of investigative journalism. This was in reference to the hashtag campaign ‘#ArrestRhea’ run by the channel in Twitter following the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.”Is this part of investigative journalism? Asking public about their opinion on who should be arrested?”, the bench asked.”Journalists were responsible back then & neutral, now media is highly polarised(sic)”, the Court remarked. The Court also said that the concept of self-regulation of media has failed. The officers were represented by Senior Advocate Aspi Chinoy, Additional Solicitor General of India Anil Singh, Senior Advocate Arvind Datar (for News Broadcasting Standards Association) and Senior Advocate Siddharth Bhatnagar(for News Broadcasters Federation). Chinoy had relied on the Delhi High Court judgment in ‘Naveen Jindal v Zee Media’s’ case, where the channel was restrained from publishing certain allegations pending investigation. He argued that courts have the inherent power to restrain publications which affects the right to fair trial of the accused. ASG Anil Singh argued if media reporting at the stage of investigation can amount to contempt of court, as an interference with the administration of justice. He as well as Senior Advocate Arvind Datar relied on the Supreme Court judgment of AK Gopalan vs Noordeen (1969), stating that it was relied upon by the SC in the Sahara India Real Estate Corp. Ltd. & Ors. Vs SEBI… judgement. Here a constitutional bench of the SC had refused to frame guidelines for media reportage. Senior Advocate Datar argued that AK Gopalan’s case was relevant even after the Contempt of Courts Act 1971 as it dealt with the inherent powers of contempt of courts under Articles 129/215 of the Constitution. The division bench had then reserved its judgement in the case on November 6, 2020. Click here to read/download the judgment Next Storylast_img read more

Nexans Opens High Voltage Test Lab in Calais

first_imgNexans has opened a new high voltage test laboratory at its Calais Center of Excellence in France, making it fully operational with the capacity to test cable systems up to 1.5 million volts.The new laboratory is dedicated to high voltage direct current (HVDC) cables, a market Nexans believes is of primary importance for high-capacity links and connection of renewable energy sources, such as the DolWin 6 offshore wind farm, for which the company will provide and install two 90km-long HVDC cables.The decision to enhance its testing capacity by building a new direct current (DC) laboratory is a result of the HV market requiring an increasing number of tests at higher and higher voltage levels, Nexans said.The laboratory allows simultaneous testing of three independent qualification loops, each composed of multiple cable sections and joints and connected to the electrical network through two terminations.According to Nexans, the lab is designed to represent the various configurations existing in power grids. The generators, rated for voltages up to 1.2 million volts, operate in a controlled environment, which guarantees the optimum equipment availability required for performing ageing tests typically lasting more than one year, the company said.“As the global energy needs continue to grow, the world will require extremely reliable cable systems for power transmission at ever higher voltage levels for both AC and DC applications,” said Dirk Steinbrink, Nexans’ Senior Executive Vice President, High Voltage and Underwater Cable Business Group.The Calais Center of Excellence for HV testing is now composed of 12 HV test laboratories equipped with generators operating up to 1.5 million volts, and addresses both alternating current (AC) and DC applications.“With its new laboratory, the Calais Center of Excellence will be positioned as one of the leading hubs for helping our clients address the challenges of the future,” Steinbrink said.last_img read more
