Police urged to probe deeper after 17-year-old arrested for editor’s murder

first_img News January 22, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Police urged to probe deeper after 17-year-old arrested for editor’s murder Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit to go further Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Following the arrest of a 17-year-old youth who has reportedly confessed to the 19 January murder of newspaper editor and columnist Hrant Dink, Reporters Without Borders today joined the executives and staff of Dink’s newspaper, the bilingual Turkish-Armenian weekly Agos, in urging the police to probe further with a view to identifying those who may have been behind the murder or in any other way responsible. News April 2, 2021 Find out more Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Following the arrest of a 17-year-old youth who has reportedly confessed to the 19 January murder of newspaper editor and columnist Hrant Dink, Reporters Without Borders today joined the executives and staff of Dink’s newspaper, the bilingual Turkish-Armenian weekly Agos, in urging the police to probe further with a view to identifying those who may have been behind the murder or in any other way responsible.“It would be inconceivable for the police to content themselves with just arresting the man who pulled the trigger,” the press freedom organisation said. “The Turkish authorities must make it clear they are determined to find and punish any instigators, and to identify all those who may have had a role in this tragedy. This is an essential condition for preventing any recurrence and for healing the wounds left by this awful murder.”Ogun Samast, 17, was arrested on the evening of 20 January in the city of Samsun, on the Black Sea, as he was returning from Istanbul to Tabzron, his home town. He is said to have admitted to firing several shots at Dink at around 2 p.m. on 19 January outside the offices of the privately-owned Agos in Istanbul. He reportedly said he did not regret shooting Dink and did it because Dink “insulted the Turkish people.”The Istanbul state prosecutor yesterday said the police were trying to determine whether Samast acted alone. Samast was arrested after his father recognised him when video footage recorded by a neighbouring shop’s surveillance camera was broadcast on television. The police have also detained seven other people.Dink had been the target of several prosecutions for referring to the 1915 massacres of Armenians and had received a six-month suspended sentence in 2005. At the time of his death, he had been facing a possible three-year prison sentence because of an interview he gave to Reuters in which he referred to the 1915 massacres as “genocide.”Around 10,000 people gathered outside the offices of Agos in Sisli, a district on the European side of Istanbul, on the evening of 19 January in homage to Dink.****Read what bloggers say about Hrant Dink’s murder : Receive email alerts News Help by sharing this information Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out more April 2, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News RSF_en Follow the news on Turkeylast_img read more

Only the operation of these six guidelines, which are mentioned in Annexure 1 of the May 17 order, are saved. The March 29 order is not included in Annexure I. This, in effect, means that the March 29 direction to pay full wages to workers without deduction has ceased to have effect from May 18.A batch of petitions have been filed in the SC questioning the constitutional and legal validity of the March 29 order.On Friday, the SC passed an interim order in two cases that the authorities should not take any coercive action for non-compliance of the March 29 order for a period of one week.SC Says No Coercive Action Against Employers In Two Pleas Challenging MHA Order On Full Payment Of Wages; No Interim Order In Connected Cases The MHA direction was challenged as unreasonable and arbitrary and as violative of the fundamental right to trade and business of the employers. Since operations are completely shut down during the lockdown, it is impossible for the employers to continue to bear the burden of full salary of employees, the petitioners submitted. The petitioners also raised the argument that the impugned direction was beyond the scope of powers conferred under the Disaster Management Act. “Interpreting Section 10(2)(l) of the Disaster Management Act 2005 as conferring power on the Central Government to direct Private Establishment to make full payment of wages to the employees during the lockdown period is arbitrary and violative of Articles 14, 19(1)(g) and 300A of the Constitution of India”, said one of the pleas. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

But these will be good temporary jobs and mileage will be 55 cents a mile so that’s a plus, too.” Applicants must also be willing to commit to four days of training, which may be held during daytime hours, evenings and weekend hours.“Certain forms of identification will be required when reporting to a testing session,” Gibson said. “Those who have a United States passport need only to bring that. Other accepted forms of identification include a driver’s license, military card or draft record, voter’s registration card, ID card issued by federal, state or local government agencies or entities, Social Security card, certified birth certificate or U.S. Citizen Identification Card.

Litigation frenzy

first_imgIgnoringthe local employment culture can be costly in Latin America. In a region whereup to one in five can be suing their employer, firms must tread carefully,warns Liz Hall InLatin America, you can ask an interviewee pretty much anything and the law doesnot bat an eyelid. But woe betide any employer who dismisses an employeewithout cause – the law will come crashing down like the proverbial ton ofbricks. Successfulrecruitment means getting to grips with the countries’ legal and culturalsimilarities and differences. Miami-based Dan Ehle, American Express’ vicepresident for HR in Latin America and the Caribbean, says, “I wouldcaution employers to invest heavily in understanding the uniqueness of LatinAmerican culture, both the obvious and subtle differences. Yet Westerncompanies often don’t pay enough attention to this, particularly from acompliance perspective.” Threeyears ago an American Express study on employee litigation in Brazil, foundthat out of 65 million workers, 13 million were suing their employer or formeremployer. “It is normal for employees in Brazil to sue their organisationsas there is no social service infrastructure. If their contract has recentlybeen terminated or they are unhappy with existing practices, they sue,”says Ehle.Companiesattempting to circumvent the law in Latin America can easily become unstuck.S‹o Paolo-based Robert Wong, president for the South American division ofsearch firm Korn/Ferry International, advises businesses to get a good labourspecialist and go by the book. “Companies turning a blind eye are likelyto end up paying a hefty price,” he says.Gettingit right at the hiring stage is particularly important. Apart from facingfinancial penalties for making someone redundant without cause, employers areonly allowed an employee trial period of 30 days. “If you want to dismissan employee after that, it’s very expensive. That’s why the candidate searchand screening process is so important,” says HR consultant Cristina Mejiasof CM Sociologia, based in Buenos Aires.Foremployers used to doing much of their recruitment over the phone or Internet,the Latin American emphasis on face-to-face contact requires some adjustment.”Doing things over the phone is an absolute no-no – you should interact inperson,” says Mejias.Althoughunemployment is widespread in Latin America, competition for key staff hasincreased. Offering a good benefits package has become a vital recruitmenttool. When BCP Telecommunications – a joint venture between Bell South inAtlanta and local banking organisation Safra – set up in S‹o Paolo in 1997, itcould take its pick of the best staff. Using local employment agencies, itrecruited around 2,000 sales and call centre staff in eight months. Its 1,000IT, engineering and admin staff were recruited directly or through search firmssuch as Korn/Ferry and Heidric &Struggle. But these days it faces heftycompetition as older industries migrate into telecommunications. “The biggame now is recruiting and retaining. We have to provide a good benefitspackage and hiring or retention bonuses for the better jobs,” says PhilDwyer, executive director of HR for the telecoms company. Statutorybenefits tend to be measly in Latin America and the employer is expected tomake up for this. But there are strong cultural differences for the benefitspreferred. “In Mexico, people appreciate the benefit of a driver; inBrazil, it’s first-class flights; in Chile, a club and private school for thekids; in Argentina, a luxury car,” says Mejias.Electronicrecruitment has been slow to kick off, but the age of the Net is dawning. Sitessuch as and – a Spanish-owned portal – are coming intotheir own. BCP Telecommunications introduced an e-recruitment policy inFebruary, and American Express plans to extend some of its US e-recruitmentprocesses to Latin America, with on-line recruitment up and running within theyear. Whenconsidering how wide to cast the recruitment net, it is worth remembering theregion’s emphasis on family. “Latin Americans are more rooted andfamily-centred than European and North Americans. They need to check with themother-in-law and the kids before deciding on a job location,” says Wong.Some employers have anti-nepotism policies, but Mejias says that while inBolivia, Paraguay and Ecuador nepotism is still an issue, it is no longer so incountries such as Argentina, Brazil and Chile.Furtherinformation… Litigation frenzyOn 1 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
