Two journalists arrested after being lured with interview invitation

first_imgPuntland’s journalists are often subjected to intimidation, threats and arbitrary arrest. With 119 journalists, Radio Daljir is one of the region’s biggest and most popular media outlets and is often attacked over its reporting. Radio Daljir journalists have been arrested three times since the start of the year. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled that the authorities in Garowe, the capital of northeastern Somalia’s semi-autonomous Puntland region, arrested two journalists after first luring them with the promise of an interview about a controversial murder case. Somalia is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in the 2020 Index. RSF_en News February 24, 2021 Find out more Former Radio Daljir director Ahmed Sheikh Mohamed, also known as “Tallman,” was jailed for several weeksa year ago after reporting that a detainee had died after being tortured during police interrogation. The interview did not materialize. As soon as the two journalists arrived at the courthouse, they were arrested and taken to Garowe’s main prison. They were finally freed yesterday but continue to be subject to judicial proceedings even if they have not yet been told the charges, the station’s director said when reached by RSF as he left the prison. RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region News “It is shocking that the judicial authorities arrest journalists after first luring them into a trap with the promise of an interview,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “These arrests are grossly unjust and trample on the most basic principles of law and public morality, which the authorities are supposed to embody. The authorities must drop the proceedings against these reporters, who were just doing their job, and must end all persecution of media and journalists in Puntland.” RSF tried to reach Puntland’s president and interior minister by messages and emails but neither had responded at the time of writing this press release.

Representatives of the DTI’s flagship Partnership Fund have defended theallocation of funds by its independent assessment committee.A letter to Personnel Today (4 April) drew attention to the fact thatcommittee chairman Willie Coupar was also a director of the Involvement andParticipation Association (IPA), which has been awarded a grant. But both the DTI and a committee member have defended the selection criteriafor awarding funds. A spokeswoman for the DTI said that if there was a conflictof interest involving a member of the assessment panel, that member would takeno part in the decision concerned. Usdaw and the TUC have also had bids accepted for grants from thePartnership Fund. Both organisations have representatives on the panel. Writing to Personnel Today, committee member Clive Morton said anunjustified conclusion had been drawn about the IPA award.”Its criteria and method of working is in the public domain and if anymember has a personal connection, they automatically withdraw, as did WillyCoupar,” he said.The fund is intended to encourage good employment relations and partnershipsat work. Available funds total £5m and the committee can recommend awards of upto £50,00 a project.www.dti.gov.uk/partnershipfund Previous Article Next Article DTI defends Partnership Fund awardsOn 18 Apr 2000 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more

Offshoring call centres to India has led to the Prudential becoming one ofthe first companies to gain international Investors In People (IIP)accreditation. While critics claim that offshoring is detrimental to British business andunions are campaigning to ‘stop the job stampede’, Prudential’s call centre inMumbai has set a benchmark for the company, and was the driver behindimprovements that led to international IIP accreditation. The company began offshoring in April 2003, and now has 800 employees inIndia. After feedback from IIP inspectors and internal company surveys, thebusiness found the Indian operation was out-performing those in the UK, andpushed its UK-based call centres to mirror Indian performance levels. Russell Martin, HR director at the Prudential, attributes the success of theIndian operation to having a robust ‘capabilities framework’ that could easilybe exported to create an office in India with the “look, touch and feel ofa UK site”. The operation has 10 HR managers in India, and they report directly tomanagement in the UK. Induction, training and development are identical to thatin the UK, and changes will only be made to the British model if there is anoverwhelming need to alter it. Martin said: “We ignored geographical boundaries and used the company’sstrong philosophical capability framework to create an Indian office wherestaff feel they are genuinely an integral part of load-sharing to improveservices.” By Michael MillarPrudential’s capability framework– Having innovative ideas that create the future– Choosing to do the right thing– Doing the right things excellently– Motivating and organising yourself to deliver– Inspiring others to deliver– Sharing what you are doing– Knowing the important thingsSource: Prudential last_img read more

HR: Why The IQ/EQ balance is important

first_imgHR: Why The IQ/EQ balance is importantShared from missc on 23 Feb 2015 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Read full article When hiring a new staff member, what are the key criteria you look for outside of the competence or experience in fulfilling the job description?We live in an age of collaboration and knowledge sharing and so the ability to positively influence situations and navigate your way around day to day scenarios with tact and diplomacy are fundamental to success. Intelligence, experience and skill are essential for success but we must stop thinking of intelligence as knowledge gained in academia. It is now widely accepted that the most successful among us have a blend of IQ and EQ, the proportions of which are widely disputed. We define and measure EQ in 5 areas. They are Self-awareness/self-control, Empathy, Social skills, Personal Influence & Motivation. So how do you screen for EQ? Here are a few questions that may help:Tell me about a time when your actions positively impacted someone else?Have you ever been in a situation where you realised that you have had to change or modify your behaviour? How did you notice this?Tell me about a time you have had to prepare yourself for a situation you knew would be negative. What did you do? How did it work out?Have you ever received criticism? What was it? Were you surprised?Tell me about a time that you were angry with someone at work. What did you do?Situational questioning will require you to observe not just the answer but how the interviewee is answering and how comfortable they are with the questions, but you will be ensuring best possible chance of securing a well-rounded professional who will flourish and succeed in a broader range of environments and circumstances.center_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Press release: Multi-million improvements to get underway in Hull next month

first_img Following years of lobbying, it is thrilling to see the commencement of these schemes which are vital to Hull. The building of the pedestrian bridge is a core part of the A63 improvement scheme, and the impact the bridge will have on Hull’s economy cannot be underestimated. The bridge will reunite the Marina with the city centre by connecting the heart of the city to its thriving waterfront, and is a critical element of our long-term regeneration plans. It’s great news that we’ll be starting work on these two key schemes. The bridge has been designed to allow further development around the waterfront and is an important part of Hull’s plans for the future. We’re carrying out these schemes together under one contractor to minimise disruption and to make the best use of the funds available. While both the bridge and Roger Millward Way roundabout improvements are being built, we’ll have narrower lanes and a reduced speed limit in place. We want the public to come along to the event and look at what we are doing. There will be the chance to see how the traffic will be managed and how access for pedestrians will be maintained during construction. Two key projects which will better connect Hull and help shape the city’s future will begin next month and members of the public are invited to find out more.A public event next Thursday (13 September, 10am to 7.30pm, Hull Marina Holiday Inn) will give people the chance to look at the exciting plans for Princes Quay Bridge and the improvement work at Roger Millward Way roundabout, both of which will start in October.The new bridge, linking the marina with the southern end of Princes Dock, will improve access and make it easier for pedestrians, cyclists and disabled users to cross the A63.At Roger Millward Way, an extra lane will be added through the middle of the roundabout and additional traffic signals will help to reduce congestion and smooth the flow of traffic.Highways England senior project manager James Leeming said: The bridge is expected to be finished by early 2020 and work on Roger Millward Way is expected to take around 9 months to complete. The schemes will be delivered by Interserve who has been appointed as the contractor.Both schemes will be completed in advance of the major A63 Castle Street project which will improve access to the port and city centre. The development consent order application for the project will be submitted later this month ahead of work starting in 2020.The upgrade is part of the government’s £15 billion roads investment strategy, which is transforming the road network and improving connections between cities.More details about the scheme are available on the scheme webpage and updates will be provided via Twitter using #a63hullpqbridgeGeneral enquiriesMembers of the public should contact the Highways England customer contact centre on 0300 123 5000.Media enquiriesJournalists should contact the Highways England press office on 0844 693 1448 and use the menu to speak to the most appropriate press officer. The bridge is being part-funded with a £4 million contribution awarded to Hull City Council by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership.The £6m improvements to the roundabout are being funded as part of a nationwide £220m Congestion Relief Fund which was announced by the Government last year to help tackle congestion at key locations.To prepare for work starting on the bridge, Hull’s historic Spurn Lightship will be moved by local marine specialists this week. It will then be moved to its permanent home on the Marina once the bridge has been built.Councillor Daren Hale, portfolio holder for economic investment and regeneration, said:last_img read more
