Along with an audio recording taken by Jacobs, a Fox News team witnessed the incident first-hand. Gianforte apparently grew agitated by Jacobs’ questioning of his stance on the Republican healthcare plan and allegedly “body-slammed” him to the ground, breaking his glasses. Gianforte has since been charged with misdemeanor assault but went on to win the election.2) After signing a bill on Friday, May 26 that reduces the cost to obtain a handgun license, Texas Governor Greg Abbott held up a bullet-riddled target sheet and joked, “I’m gonna carry this around in case I see any reporters.” The governor was visiting a shooting range to celebrate the new bill’s passage. 3) President Trump did not hold a single news conference or briefing during his first official trip abroad to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Brussels and Italy. On Monday, May 22, President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a joint statement to discuss the advancement of peace, the threat of Iran, and the friendship between Israel and the US. There was no opportunity for press to ask any questions. On Thursday, the US press pool was barred from President Trump’s arrival at the European Headquarters in Brussels. Live footage of the event was later posted online, and eventually official White House photographers were given access. The lack of press briefings coincided with breaking news that Jared Kushner, President Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law, became a person of interest in the investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election. President Trump has been considering decreasing the frequency of on-camera White House press briefings. “It is appalling that the hostile anti-press rhetoric being used at various levels of the US government has now escalated to physical violence against a journalist who simply asked a question, says Margaux Ewen, RSF North America’s Advocacy and Communications Director. Furthermore, the fact that the Governor of Texas made a joke about shooting reporters just days after a journalist was physically assaulted by a Montana politician is truly alarming, as we continue to see a causal link between hostile remarks and incidents of intimidation and physical force. This new level of violence is completely unacceptable in a country founded on democratic values like a free and independent press.”The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.IMAGE CREDIT: MANDEL NGAN / AFP Follow the news on United States News June 7, 2021 Find out more April 28, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Below are the most concerning attacks on press freedom that occurred during the week of May 22 – 28: to go further United StatesAmericas May 30, 2017 – Updated on May 31, 2017 RSF’s #WeeklyAddress on US press freedom : Week of May 22 – 28last_img read more

Journalist held without trial in eastern city for 15 months

first_imgNews May 12, 2021 Find out more Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections News April 29, 2021 Find out more Abdelhai worked for a regional radio station in Tébessa and was the local correspondent of the Arabic-language daily Jaridati when arrested on 18 August 2013 for allegedly helping Jaridati editor Hicham Aboud to flee the country to escape prosecution.According to Abdelhai’s lawyer, the police held him for five days (three days more than the legal limit) and mistreated in several different police units before transferring him to Tébessa prison, where he has remained ever since without any trial hearing being scheduled.A diabetic, Abdelhai began the hunger strike on 5 November after his lawyer’s fourth request for his provisional release was rejected. Since 15 May, his case has been awaiting a decision by the supreme court as to whether he should be tried before a magistrate or a criminal court.According to article 123 of the Algeria’s code of criminal procedure, pre-trial detention is supposed to be an exceptional measure and it is far from clear that grounds for exceptionality exist in Abdelhai’s case.“By holding this journalist for 15 months without trial, the Algerian authorities have violated his fundamental rights, above all, his right to freedom and a fair trial,” Reporters Without Borders programme director Lucie Morillon said. “We urge them to put him on trial now, so that he can defend himself, or otherwise free him at once.”Aboud, Abdelhai’s former editor, said the police questioned several people on the grounds that they had been in contact with him before he left the country. Aboud was charged last year with “endangering national security, territorial integrity and the proper functioning of national institutions” because he discussed President Bouteflika’s health with the international media. He was subsequently also charged with leaving the country illegally.The authorities seized the latest issues of Jaridati and the other newspaper Aboud edited, the French-language Monjournal, in May 2013 and closed them four months later. Aboud told Reporters Without Borders he left Algeria legally on 10 August 2013 using his passport, which had the stamps of both the Algerian and Tunisian border police.Aboud confirmed that he did meet with Abdelhai before crossing the border (which is 20 km east of Tébessa) but insisted that this did not constitute grounds for arresting Abdelhai. They arrested Abdelhai for political reasons, above all because they wanted to incriminate him (Aboud), he claimed.More than 430 people have so far signed a petition launched by journalists and activists on the Avaaz website last month urging the justice minister to free Abdelhai.Algeria is ranked 121st out of 180 countries in 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Struck by a car in her Los Angeles neighborhood while walking to school, Vanessa suffered multiple injuries so severe, she was immediately airlifted to a local trauma center for evaluation and treatment.While Vanessa’s medical team quickly identified her broken femur and foot injuries, and swiftly moved her into surgery to put her leg in traction, it soon became clear to her parents that Vanessa needed more care than the busy trauma unit could provide.“The staff treated her well, but with every gunshot and stab wound victim – unfortunately common injuries in Los Angeles – we just kept getting bumped from the schedule and were soon nothing more than a number,” said Veronica Desrosiers, Vanessa’s mother and vice president, enterprise risk management, for CO-OP Financial Services. continue reading »last_img read more
