Jonas Ngalamulume, the National Congolese Press Union’s lawyer, who is representing Ngoie, said the purpose of today’s hearing was just to consider the request for Ngoie’s release and that no date to has so far been set to hear the substance of the case.“This is yet another case illustrating the dangers associated with journalism in the DRC,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “Although simply accused of defamation, this journalist has been detained for the past week and is being treated like a criminal. We call for his immediate release. It’s time the DRC adopted new legislation that provides press freedom with much more protection, so that journalists stop ending up in prison over work-related matters.”As RSF reported at the time, Radio France Internationale correspondent Pascal Mulegwa was summoned to appear in court last week in a suit brought by a senator for quoting an NGO’s claim that, when transport minister, he had channelled a public transport company’s funds into his senatorial election campaign.Journalists and media outlets continue to be subjected to many abuses in the DRC. Journalist in Danger (JED), RSF’s local partner organization, painted an alarming picture in its latest annual report on 2 November, revealing that it had registered no fewer than 116 press freedom violations in 2020, including 40 arrests.The DRC is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

A division bench of Jusitces Ravindra Ghuge and BU Debadwar said that even though respect for the law cannot be guaranteed by the threat of legal action, it has become necessary to send a “loud and clear” message to society that hostile witnesses shall not be pardoned. The bench directed the trial court to take action under section 340 of the Criminal Procedure Code against the witnesses, and a copy of the judgement to be forwarded to the Principal District and Sessions Judges in Maharashtra for circulation, to apprise the subordinate judiciary about the action they were empowered to take in appropriate cases. The bench held that it was a matter of “great concern” if witnesses turned hostile for “extraneous considerations,” as they would then begin to believe they are beyond the reach of law. “This would not only be a serious ailment/ disease to the justice dispensation system, but could as well be cancerous to the rule of law and the justice delivery system,” the bench observed. “We are finding practically in every case before us that day by day, the list of hostile witnesses is getting enlarged and the witnesses are getting emboldened in turning hostile for the reasons which can be speculated and perceived,” the court added. The Case The court was hearing the appeal of 75-year-old Saraswati Ganpat Landge, who was sentenced to life imprisonment on September 11, 2014 by the Ambajogai Sessions Court, in Beed, for the brutal murder of her husband over few acres of land the man intended to donate. The prosecution alleged that Landge smashed her husband’s face with an 8-kilogram stone, mutilated his genitals and then electrocuted the man to ensure he dies. Landge had allegedly confessed to killing her husband to a police officer soon after the incident. During the trial five of the seven witnesses examined were declared hostile, despite which Landge was convicted. These witnesses included the couple’s son (complainant) who lived with them, a neighbour and a formal witness(panch), among others. The HC court acquitted Langde and observed that it highly doubted that a senior citizen could carry such a heavy stone or have caused the injuries to the man’s genitals. Moreover, even though the investigating officer said the murder weapon was recovered at her behest, the hostile witnesses had created a huge cloud if the couple was alone in the room on the fateful night of the murder. The court held that the trial court erred in using the FIR as a substantial piece of evidence. “We, therefore, find that the conclusion of the Trial Court that the quarrels between the appellant and the deceased were proved on the basis of the FIR, is unacceptable. The FIR cannot be used as substantive piece of evidence.” Commenting on the poor execution by the prosecution in the case, the court observed. “Keeping in view that the prosecution has conducted the trial in a casual and half-hearted manner, five out of seven witnesses have turned hostile and as material witnesses have not been examined, that we are constrained to grant the benefit of doubt to the appellant/ accused and order her acquittal.” The court relied on the following judgements to make observations against witnesses.

‘Most humiliating experience of my life:’ Black North Carolina man who was handcuff and removed from his home after false burglar alarm

first_imgKazeem Oyeneyin(RALEIGH, N.C.) —  An African-American homeowner says he endured the “most humiliating experience of my life” when white police officers answered a false burglar alarm at his North Carolina home and ended up placing him in handcuffs at gunpoint and walking him to a police car in just his underwear as his neighbors watched.“I was counting the seconds because I thought he was going to kill me,” Kazeem Oyeneyin, 31, told ABC News on Saturday of the confrontation with police at his home in Raleigh. “He was shaking the gun. All he has to do is slip and hit that trigger and I’m dead.”Raleigh police official said the incident is under investigation.“The Department is looking into this incident and reviewing our officers’ actions,” Raleigh police said in a statement to ABC station WTVD in Durham, North Carolina. “We have attempted to contact the homeowner several times over the past few days to discuss this incident with him.”Oyeneyin said the episode occurred on Aug. 17, when a friend who was staying at his home left and triggered his home security system.He said he was asleep and didn’t hear the alarm as soon as it went off, but his cellphone, which is linked to his security system, sounded and woke him up.“I go downstairs. I disengage the alarm. I go back upstairs, I laid down. Twenty minutes later, I just hear these loud noises,” Oyeneyin told ABC News. “So, I come down my steps, I grab my gun because I don’t know who’s in the house.”Oyeneyin said the incident happened at 12:21 p.m. and that he was sleeping because he works nights as a party and hip-hop concert promoter under the nickname “Tim Boss.”Security video in his home, which he shared with ABC News, shows an officer holding a gun in his hand and pushing open the unlocked front door and yelling, “Police. If you’re inside, make yourself known. Come on out with your hands up.”Oyeneyin is heard in the video responding that he had a gun, prompting the officer to order him to drop the weapon and step outside the front door. But the homeowner paused in his foyer and began videoing with his cellphone while asking the officer, “What for?”“Just turn around and put your hands behind your back and get down on your knees,” the officer tells Oyeneyin, according to the security video.When Oyeneyin again asked why and tried to explain he was in his own home, the officer still pointing a gun at him repeated that Oyeneyin get on his knees and to “turn around and face away from me,” according to the video.Oyeneyin eventually complied with the orders and the officer handcuffed him, the video shows. The homeowner asked to see the officer’s supervisor as a police car siren is heard in the background.When a sergeant and two other officers entered the home, Oyeneyin stood up and attempted to explain that he owned the home.The sergeant ordered Oyeneyin to sit back down. When Oyeneyin tried to tell him he had done nothing wrong, the sergeant told two officers to take him to a police car and said, “We’re going to clear the house,” according to the video.Oyeneyin said the officer walked him handcuffed and in just his boxer shorts to a police car about five houses away.“While the cop was trying to put me in the car, I’m screaming, like ‘Yo!’ because I want my neighbors to come out and tell them that I live there,” Oyeneyin said. “So, the neighbors are just looking through the windows and I’m just humiliated. Nobody wants to say nothing. Everybody’s just looking.”He said as he was sitting in the back of a police car while police searching his house.While he waited, a second sergeant who he knew arrived at the scene and recognized him. That sergeant had Oyeneyin’s handcuffs removed and walked him back to his house.The sergeant is heard on the security video telling his colleagues, “Tell everybody they need to come on out. This is the homeowner.”Oyeneyin told ABC News that he’s still rattled by the incident.“This was one of the most humiliating experiences of my life,” he said, adding that he doesn’t have a criminal record and has a permit to carry a concealed weapon. “I mean, I felt like my character was defamed. I went outside the other day, the neighbors wouldn’t even wave at me. They don’t know what’s going on. They think I’m a whole criminal over here.”Oyeneyin said he’s just thankful that his 6-month-old son wasn’t at the house at the time of the incident.“My son was with his mother at the time, thank God,” he said.Oyeneyin said officers identifying themselves as being from internal affairs showed up at his house to asked him about the incident after WTVD did a story about it on Friday. He said he declined to accept their invitation to go to the police station and make a formal complaint.“They’ve got me scared. I ain’t going to lie to you,” Oyeneyin said. “I don’t know who to trust them.”He said he hasn’t decided yet whether to seek legal advice on what action to take, but added, “I just think people need to be aware of this. This ain’t right.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

EU reaches stalemate over Agency Workers Directive

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. The European Union has reached an impasse over the future of thecontroversial Agency Workers Directive, after a crucial meeting last weekfailed to reach an agreement. The various European nations are currently at loggerheads over thedirective, with Britain, Germany, Ireland and Denmark all looking forconcessions. The current draft of the directive would see employers forced to offertemporary workers the same employment conditions as permanent staff from dayone of employment. They would also be entitled to the same salary after asix-week qualification period. It is this qualification period that is causing the split. The Department ofTrade and Industry (DTI) is pushing for a return to the original position of aone-year qualification period, or anything above six weeks. Employers and the Government fear the directive would damage the UK labourmarket’s flexibility by making it less attractive to hire temps due to increasedred tape. The draft will probably now remain with the Council of Ministers, forfurther discussion, into the period when the Italian presidency of the EUstarts on 1 July. If a consensus still can’t be reached, it could become bogged down for aslong as a year before moving to the European Parliament for ratification,although this is thought unlikely. David Yeandle, deputy director of employment policy at the EngineeringEmployers Federation (EEF), said employers would be pleased with the UK Government’srobust line, despite intense pressure from Europe to get a resolution. “The fact they didn’t reach agreement shows there is a big gap betweenwhat the different countries want. In theory, it could be with the Council ofMinisters for as long as it takes,” he said. However, TUC general secretary Brendan Barber accused the Government ofscuppering decent pay and basic rights for agency workers.
