And we have been forcefully condemning the attacks on foreign and local journalists, both professional and netizen, by the Assad regime’s troops and militias since the start of the uprising in March 2011.We have also been providing moral and material support to those who have been trying to do their duty as news providers to break down the regime’s media blockade. We have repeatedly alerted the international community to the massive scale of human rights violations in Syria, especially the level of censorship imposed by the authorities.However, our organization has also unfortunately been registering a growing number of violations of freedom of information by the anti-government forces in recent weeks. The employees of Syria’s pro-government media are becoming the targets of abduction and murder with increasing frequency.The Islamist group Al-Nosra announced on 3 August that it had executed Mohammad Al Saeed, a TV presenter who was kidnapped from his home in mid-July. Syrian government TV cameraman Talal Janbakeli was kidnapped in Damascus on 5 August by the Free Syrian Army’s Haroun Al-Rasheed militia.A crew working for Al-Ikhbariya, a privately-owned pro-government TV station, was captured by another FSA unit on 10 August. According to the information currently available, one of its members is now dead, while his colleagues have been forced to make on-camera “confessions.” Ali Abbas, a journalist with the government news agency Sana, was killed at his home in the Damascus suburb of Jdaidet Artouz on 11 August. The premises of several government or pro-government media have also been the targets of bombings since late June.Several foreign journalists have told us they were the targets of death threats from opposition groups. Some were kidnapped by small jihadist groups. Such practices sadly resemble those used by the Assad regime against opposition journalists.We are aware of the Syrian opposition’s diversity. However, we call on you, as the overall leaders of its main components, to publicly condemn these abuses and to carry out the necessary investigations.Your current status as a belligerent, and your desire to facilitate a transition in Syria, require you to respect international law and to impose it on the various opposition forces, civilian and military. International conventions and regulations, including UN Security Council Resolution 1738, require all parties to a war to protect journalists.We strongly condemn the publication or broadcasting of propaganda messages inciting hatred or violence against the civilian population. Nonetheless, neither professional nor netizen journalists should ever be targeted. Their physical integrity and dignity should be respected in order to protect freedom of information itself.The FSA and other components of the opposition must immediately and unconditionally release the journalists and media workers they are holding, including the Al-Ikhbariya crew members captured on 10 August. They must also immediately stop filming statements extracted under duress, a degrading practice to which many detained journalists have been subjected.Such behaviour is not only a violation of human rights and your international responsibilities but is also counter-productive, as it can only damage the Syrian opposition’s image in the eyes of the public and its international supporters.I thank you in advance for the attention you give to this letter.Sincerely, Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists Receive email alerts February 3, 2021 Find out more News to go further Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria SyriaMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en News Organisation Christophe Deloire Reporters Without Borders director-general Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law Help by sharing this information

PCC improved its overall record to 3-2.Holguin (1-0) faced only one batter over the minimum as he carried a no hitter into the fifth. With one out, WLAC third baseman Andrew Baneulos singled to break up the no-no. Holguin then induced the next hitter Michael Strosnider to hit into an inning-ending, 4-6-3 double play. It was the third twin killing of the four turned by PCC’s middle infielders Robert Mier, second baseman, and Thomas Castro, the shortstop.After designated hitter John Sevilla hit a RBI groundout to give PCC a 1-0 lead in the first inning, leftfielder Joe Quire delivered a 2-run single to right that helped increase the Lancers’ lead to 4-0. Quire finished 2-for-4 while third baseman David Dominguez was 2-for-3 with a walk.In the eighth, reserve Joe Willard put down a drag bunt single that brought in an insurance run and gave PCC a 5-0 advantage. West LA (2-4) rallied with three runs in the bottom of the frame, two on bases-loaded walks surrendered by PCC relievers Nick Esparza and Jason Marquez.Marquez, a sophomore, got out of a jam with runners on second and third by striking out Mateus Vakuda. In the ninth, Marquez completed the save as Mier and Castro fittingly turned another 4-6-3 double play for the game’s final outs.Coach Pat McGee’s Lancers host Los Angeles Valley College on Friday, Feb. 13 in a 2 p.m. opening pitch at Brookside Park’s Jackie Robinson Memorial Field.

He was followed to a house nearby and police arrested him.Police opposed bail on the grounds that they believed Kelly was inciting others to throw petrol bombs at the time.Defence solicitor Paddy MacDermott said that his client would claim that he was trying to discourage others from rioting. District Judge Barney McElholm said he did not believe that. He released Kelly on his own bail of £1000 with one surety of £1000, ordered him to be tagged, observe a curfew from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. and refrain from alcohol.He was also ordered not to set foot on the west bank of the Foyle, except for court appearances.At the same court, John Duffy was charged with riotous behaviour, throwing petrol bombs and possessing petrol bombs on the same day.The court was told that shortly after 6 p.m Duffy was abusive to police, and later, he was seen throwing a petrol bomb which hit a landrover.He then entered a house in Fahan Street where police arrested him.At interview, he told police he had been drinking since 2 p.m., and had been given a petrol bomb which he threw. Defence solicitor Mr. Kevin Casey said his client was just a ‘drunk man in the wrong place at the wrong time on the wrong day.’Duffy was released on his own bail of £1000 with a surety of £1000, ordered to observe a curfew from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. and abstain from alcohol.Both men will appear again on September 12th.

Several recent empirical studies have challenged the prevailing dogma that broadcast-spawning species exhibit little or no population genetic structure by documenting genetic discontinuities associated with large-scale oceanographic features. However, relatively few studies have explored patterns of genetic differentiation over fine spatial scales. Consequently, we used a hierarchical sampling design to investigate the basis of a weak but significant genetic difference previously reported between Antarctic limpets (Nacella concinna) sampled from Adelaide and Galindez Islands near the base of the Antarctic Peninsula. Three sites within Ryder Bay, Adelaide Island (Rothera Point, Leonie and Anchorage Islands) were each sub-sampled three times, yielding a total of 405 samples that were genotyped at 155 informative Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphisms (AFLPs). Contrary to our initial expectations, limpets from Anchorage Island were found to be subtly, but significantly distinct from those sampled from the other sites. This suggests that local processes may play an important role in generating fine-scale population structure even in species with excellent dispersal capabilities, and highlights the importance of sampling at multiple spatial scales in population genetic surveys.

The re-poll of last term’s overturned Union election will go ahead in 2nd week of this term, as the Appellate Board publishes its final report, upholding Krishna Omkar’s conviction and disqualification in full. Omkar was found guilty of electoral malpractice under the Union’s complex Rule 33. The malpractice centred around the holding of a ‘slate party’ the night before last term’s Union elections, at which Omkar and a number of past and current Union figures were present, as well as Cal Flyn, Editor of the Oxford Student.The tribunal was brought by Charlotte Fischer, another presidential candidate, who lost to Krishna by a large majority. The tribunal criticised Omkar for what they perceived as a “disturbing arrogance” towards the Union’s rules. He was also criticised for ‘intimidating’ Ms Flyn, whose testimony received significant prominence in the tribunal’s report. Omkar appealed the decision, which disqualified him from the election and the subsequent re-poll. In a lengthy written submission to the Appellate Board, he attacked “factual inaccuracies”, “material omissions”, and reliance on “hearsay”. The tribunal board also relied on a “balanced of probabilities” for finding the verdict, rather than the “beyond all reasonable doubt” burden required by the Union rules, he argued. However, the Appellate Board found no reason to uphold any of Omkar’s allegations of failings in the tribunal process. The Board also considered Omkar’s claim that the sentence was disproportionate. On the disqualification, the Board ruled that once guilt was found, disqualification was not a power but “a duty” of the tribunal panel. The Appellate Board finally considered issues of eligibility to run in the re-poll. There have been ongoing suggestions that Charlotte Fischer may be the only person eligible, due to the criteria laid down by the original ruling.The original tribunal panel were questioned over their decision to order a re-poll, as the Appellate Board viewed it as “unusual that the Original Tribunal had not simply ordered the election of the original complainant.” They accepted the tribunal panel’s defence that their decision had been made on principle, “for the good of the Society”, and that they had not explicitly examined who would be eligible.During the appeal proceedings, Omkar’s representative protested that allowing Fischer to assume the presidency uncontested would amount to a “coronation”. As the Union Returning Officer refuses to examine eligibility of potential candidates until nominations are received, it is still unknown whether Charlotte Fischer is the only eligible candidate. The report does suggest some differences of opinion over Omkar’s punishment, but the Appellate Board’s jurisdiction only allows it to consider the rationality of the sentencing, so found no grounds to overturn the original ruling. In the report’s closing remarks, the Board says it was “particularly saddened to note the increasing appearance of professional advocates,” regardless of whether they were or were not acting in a pro bono capacity. At the original tribunal hearing, Charlotte Fischer was represented by a professional lawyer, whereas Krishna Omkar was represented by a post-graduate ex-Union Returning Officer. However, at the appeal Omkar was represented by a professional lawyer, whereas Fischer represented herself. The Board cited a statement in the Union rules that notes they exist to ensure “members do not gain advantage by virtue of being richer than other candidates,” and advised restricting or banning the use of professional advocates. With the appeal process completed, the re-poll will be held Friday of 2nd week, with nominations opening Friday of 0th week.
