Four have been arrested and a dozen turned back. Reporters Without Borders calls on the army to issue special passes to journalists.

At least four journalists have been arrested and a dozen more barred entering from the area.The press freedom organisation said the government’s duty to ensure basic security for journalists must not be used as an excuse to prevent them independently reporting on this major operation in the fight against terrorism by arresting them, keeping them out of the area and seizing their equipment. It called on armed forces spokesman Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan to guarantee better media access to the region by giving journalists special passes.The government has barred nearly all Pakistani and foreign journalists from the South Waziristan tribal area, where the combat zone has been tightly sealed off by the military, which did however put on a helicopter tour for foreign journalists on 20 March, though not to the area of the fighting itself.Mujeebur Rehman, correspondent for the Urdu-language daily Khabrian and stringer for several foreign TV stations, was arrested on 16 March while filming military operations near Wana and held for several hours. His digital camera was confiscated and has not been returned to him.Shaukat Khattak, a reporter with the privately-owned Pakistani TV station Geo TV, was arrested on 18 March in Dabkot while filming army activity. Despite having the right documents, he was detained for four hours, during which he said soldiers threatened and insulted him “as if I was a terrorist.”A reporter and a photographer for the Associated Press news agency were turned back by troops at a roadblock about an hour’s drive from Wana on 19 March. Half a dozen other journalists, including two Pakistani photographers, were not allowed into South Waziristan, which is more than 10 hours by road south of Peshawar, in northwestern Pakistan.Haroon Rashid, correspondent of the British BBC World Service radio in Peshawar, and Saiful Islam, of the Urdu-language daily Surkhab and correspondent for the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera, were arrested at Peshawar military hospital on 21 March. They were trying to interview soldiers wounded in the South Waziristan fighting. After waiting three hours, Pakistani intelligence officials interrogated them about why they were there. All their film was destroyed and their minidisc recorders confiscated.More than a dozen journalists in Wana currently work as stringers for Pakistani and foreign media but their employers say they are not allowed to work freely. They cannot enter the combat zone and have to be very careful what they report, said one Islamabad-based foreign journalist, who said they were under pressure and sometimes reacted according to their tribal origin.Reporters Without Borders has deplored working conditions for journalists in the tribal areas for several years. In its 2002 Annual Report, it said their “safety and freedom are limited” and that “local authorities and traditional leaders threaten correspondents who denounce their abuses, often committed in the name of Frontier crimes regulation.”Journalists in Peshawar have had no response to their request to officials of the tribal areas for the media to be issued with special passes.

Injury woes striking a familiar tune with Los Angeles Lakers

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “With all the guys we have hurt, you know Kobe. He’ll try to take it upon himself as much as possible,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “We want to try to keep it as little as possible and not have all the scoring load be on his back.”It appeared that would be a tough task before Sunday’s game. Lakers forward Ryan Kelly experienced soreness in his right hamstring on the final drill of Sunday’s morning shootaround, the same day he hoped to return from a strained left hamstring that kept him out of the Lakers’ four previous exhibitions. After having offseason surgery on his right knee, Lakers forward Xavier Henry will travel to New York City for a second opinion and then to Dusseldorf, Germany to undergo Regenokine treatment. Nick Young will stay sidelined for at least another month while healing his surgically repaired right thumb. No one ever knows how Steve Nash’s chronically hurt back will shape up. And perhaps Jordan Clarkson (strained left calf muscle) and Jeremy Lin (sprained left ankle) will return soon. So what can the Lakers do?“It’s got to be by committee,” Scott said. “I can’t necessarily look at one guy and say, ‘We need you to go out there and do this for us.’” A fluctuating roster and a coaching change have not removed an odor that has left the Lakers with an unpleasant residue.The Lakers are already dealing with a revolving door of injuries that spark reminders of last season’s nightmare that ended with the team’s worst record in L.A. franchise history. During that stretch, players missed a combined 319 games because of health. It seems hard to make this up, but the Lakers’ injury bug has already bitten six players and left them with uncertain return dates. Yet, somehow it did not matter in the Lakers’ 98-91 preseason victory on Sunday against the Utah Jazz at Staples Center, improving the team’s preseason record to 2-3 and snapping the team’s three consecutive losses in exhibition play. The Lakers, of course, depended on Kobe Bryant, his 26 points on 7-of-22 shooting and 9-of-11 clip from the foul line in 31 minutes marking his latest progression after playing in only six games last season because of overlapping injuries to his left Achilles tendon and left knee. This happened a day after Bryant threw down a one-handed dunk in practice. But the Lakers also fueled a third-quarter rally, outscoring Utah’s second unit 31-18, with a heavy dose of contributions from veteran forward Carlos Boozer (19 points), training camp invitee Wayne Ellington (nine points), rookie forward Julius Randle (eight points) and versatile swingman Wesley Johnson (eight points). For only the second time in five exhibitions, the Lakers also held an opponent under 100 points.center_img Scott plans to play Bryant in the Lakers’ three remaining preseason games this week to build rhythm heading into the 2014-15 season opener Oct. 28. Scott believes Clarkson will return either Tuesday against Phoenix at Staples Center or Wednesday against Portland in Ontario. Scott added Lin’s possible return on Tuesday hinges on if he can participate in a full-contact scrimmage Monday that includes cutting and changing direction without having additional strain on his left ankle.The Lakers have also delayed making the first round of cuts to their training camp roster, the lone exception to Jeremy Tyler so he could sign a contract to play in China. “You got to be a little concerned, especially with the guys we have out,” Scott said. “We expected them to be players we could depend on. It’s a little concerning.”But not concerning enough for the Lakers to prove they can absorb some of those absences. last_img read more

Records Show Lie Detector Missed Broward Sheriff Tony’s Concealed Past, Including 1993 Killing

first_imgThe Sun Sentinel says that when Tony interviewed for the Coral Springs job, he replied no to these questions, in preparation for his lie-detector test:-Had law enforcement ever been called because of something he was involved in.-Had he ever caused the death of another person.-Had he ever been in a fight that involved a weapon.-Had law enforcement ever questioned him as a suspect in an investigation.-Had he ever been arrested or charged, even if the charges were dropped, sealed or expunged or he was found not guilty.-Had he ever used a hallucinogenic drug.He stated that the most serious thing he had ever done in his life was “fighting.”Tony allegedly made similar omissions during the 31 questions that were asked in his voice stress test, answering “no” to questions about whether he had used hallucinogens, falsified any information on his application, or had been arrested or detained.He explained on the questionnaire that he had sprayed graffiti as a teenager on supermarkets, rooftops and abandoned homes. He also admitted to stealing $200 from his parents and siblings, as well as taking $10 worth of paper and pens, driving on a suspended license, and street fighting.Tony added that creditors were after him, and described himself as “irresponsible” for not paying traffic tickets. He also said he had written bad checks three to four times.“The examination indicated the candidate was truthful in his responses,” according to the Coral Springs police records. “No deception indicated,” the investigator concluded. Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony lied numerous times in order to get his first job as a police officer, then passed a lie-detector test despite saying that his answers were true, according to newly released records.Coral Springs police made Tony complete a questionnaire and undergo a voice stress test when he applied for a job there in 2005. He answered “no” to several questions that would have revealed that he killed a man in 1993, according to police records released Thursday.Tony was arrested as a 14-year-old in Philadelphia on charges of shooting another teenager, an incident which he has described as self-defense. The case was transferred to juvenile court, where he was ultimately found not guilty.However, those records are no longer available, leaving questions as to whether they were purged, sealed or expunged.During the Coral Springs interview fifteen years ago, Tony stated that he had never been taken into custody or questioned in regard to any matter.Police records obtained by the South Florida Sun Sentinel show Tony, who is running for sheriff for the first time, concealing the 1993 shooting, even when he is asked specifically about sealed or expunged cases.Last Thursday, Tony’s campaign responded in a statement: “This week the country has once again been rocked by stories of police brutality — an issue that Sheriff Tony has confronted head-on in Broward County and was ignored by his predecessor Scott Israel.”It continued: “So it is no surprise that once again opponents are trying to dredge up incidents from his teenage years and from his past. Voters in this election will make a choice between the job Sheriff Tony is doing in the job as sheriff today, as compared to the failed leadership of his predecessor — not on things that happened 15 or 27 years ago.”His campaign consultant, Eric Johnson, said at the beginning of May that Tony did not disclose the killing on police paperwork since the question asked whether a “criminal” record had been sealed. Johnson repeated that Tony had been found not guilty in the shooting. Some police agencies use the voice stress test because it is seen as being less invasive than a polygraph test, which requires that the person be strapped to a device in order to measure their truthfulness, according to Maria Haberfeld, a professor at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed Tony as sheriff in January of last year, after suspending former Sheriff Scott Israel for what the governor called negligence in the 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, as well as the 2017 shooting at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Israel is running against Tony to reclaim the job.Police records show that Tony was rejected for a job with Tallahassee police in 2004, after admitting he used LSD one time.The Florida Department of Law Enforcement recently began an investigation into whether he was untruthful about the Philadelphia shooting in job paperwork.In addition, the sheriff’s union took a no-confidence vote against Tony in April, adding that he failed to provide deputies with protective gear against the coronavirus.Tony said in a radio interview last week that he has become the focus of a “smear campaign” and “political slandering.”“I hate to say this, but for every time there is a minority candidate for any position of power, the first thing they want to do is portray you as having a gun in your hand, or needle in your arm, or some financial problems,” he explained.State Plans to Review Complaint that Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony Lied about 1993 Criminal Chargelast_img read more

Municipal Town Hall, Police Station Project Hits Snag In Fair Haven

first_imgThe overlay zones mandate that all future development projects in that business corridor be mixed-use constructions, with commercial properties at street level and housing units on the second and third stories, including a 20 percent affordable set-aside. “The borough is still looking at purchasing a property on River Road. It was made clear in the ordinance we laid out; there were numerous blocks that were identified. The governing body is considering all options,” Casagrande said. The ordinance stated the borough “has not been able to effectively communicate” with the property owner (M&M) and, if the parcel is unable to be acquired by agreement with the owner, “the borough wishes to acquire the property through its power of eminent domain.” Neither the M&M housing proposal nor the borough’s consolidation plan would conform to Fair Haven’s affordable housing plan guidelines. The passage states that future constructions within the eastern commercial district not exceed 20 units per acre, and a conforming project on that site would yield 13 units, three of which would need to be held for low or moderate income tenants or buyers. Though the consolidation plan was unveiled at the beginning of the new year, the borough’s new affordable housing plan, prepared by Heyer, Gruel & Associates, included a passage that described a piece of correspondence issued by M&M to the borough in February. Casagrande said that during the process to identify these lots, the governing body wanted to ensure the site was not located in a residential area. These four blocks, located along or near the River Road corridor, were determined to be appropriate for a project of this scope. Following its closure, the borough entered discussions with Sunoco to purchase the parcel, but Piscataway development firm M&M Realty Partners eventually acquired the property for $1.3 million. The borough is immediately on the hook for one affordable unit, but has an unmet need of 370 units. To cut into that total, the borough has established overlay zones at the United Methodist Church on McCarter Avenue, as well as in its eastern commercial district, which includes theformer Sunoco property. But it turns out the property owner had another plan. He recently sold his property to a developer who envisions townhouse rentals on the site. center_img Borough officials say they can stay flexible. The Sunoco site is not the only site available, said borough administrator Teresa Casagrande. The former Sunoco station, located at 626 River Road, is a 28,000-square-foot corner lot. It closed in 2011. On Feb. 25, the borough passed an ordinance to increase the previously approved budget for the project by $1.62 million, a total the governing body can spend on properties identified in property tax rolls as blocks 25, 29, 30 and 31. According to the plan, this correspondence outlined the development firm’s proposal to construct a three-story rental construction. The proposal called for 24 family rental units, four of which wouldbe set aside as affordable. “I don’t think we anticipated everything coming to a head at once,” Mayor Benjamin Lucarelli said. “There’s a lot happening right now (with this property), and much of it is out of our control. We’ve been working on consolidating these facilities for four years now and it’s not a simple thing to get accomplished, especially when the property we’d like to develop is a property the borough does not own.” FAIR HAVEN – Borough officials were eyeing a former gas station at the intersection of Cedar Avenue and River Road as a suitable location for a new municipal complex housing town hall and the police station. As far as invoking its power of eminent domain to acquire the property, Lucarelli said it would be a last resort, though he noted the governing body adopted an ordinance in October authorizing the borough to do so. M&M would not comment on the matter when contacted April 2.last_img read more

Leafs get top marks halfway through KIJHL regular season

After the weekend, we take Sunday and Monday off, and Tuesday we’re right back at it.TND: This team has proven it’s never out of games. As evident last weekend needing to rally past Grand ForksF.M: Going back to the beginning of the season, we’ve proven this team is never out of it. We all understand it’s a 60-minute game and you have to play 60 minutes in order to win and that’s our focus going into every game and if we do fall behind we stick to the game plan.TND: Nice to be back home for two games this weekend?F.M: These are two really good teams coming to town in Kelowna (18-6-0-2) and North Okanagan (12-11-0-1).
