Your heart has to be in it,” Nanyamka said. “There is strength in being able to go out there and work for a higher purpose other than yourself.”Students Lea Sandoval and Ilse Espino echoed that notion by saying their volunteer experience has helped them find what they want to do and achieve in life.Linda Engle from the Victory Therapy Center said that volunteer work could have a positive effect on students as well as the people in the community they are serving.“They realize how blessed they are by being able to work with those less fortunate than themselves,” Engle said.

Cameroonian journalist Samuel Wazizi died in detention

first_img Help by sharing this information Wazizi was accused of speaking critically on the air about the authorities and their handling of the crisis in Cameroon’s English-speaking regions, where clashes between soldiers and separatists calling for independence or more autonomy have left more than 3,200 dead and displaced 700,000 others in the past three years. Case against Amadou Vamoulké baseless, French lawyers tell Cameroon court Organisation News RSF_en A presenter on Buea-based Chillen Media Television (CMTV), Wazizi was held at Muea police station in Buea for the first five days after his arrest on 2 August 2019. Neither his family nor his lawyers were allowed any contact with him or were given any information about him after soldiers removed him from the police station and took him to the headquarters of the 21st Motorized Infantry Battalion in Buea on 7 August. RSF has been battling for months to prevent another journalist, Amadou Vamoulké, the former head of Cameroon’s state radio and TV broadcaster CRTV, from suffering the same fate. Vamoulké is 70 and at least one coronavirus case has been detected in Kondengui prison, where he has been held provisionally for nearly four years. After asking for months for him to be medevacked, RSF has just referred his case to the UN special rapporteur on the right to health. June 4, 2020 Cameroonian journalist Samuel Wazizi died in detention May 31, 2021 Find out more “This TV presenter’s death while held incommunicado in a completely illegal manner by the military is the worst crime against a journalist in the past ten years in Cameroon,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk.  “There was no justification for holding him in an army barracks and no excuse for his death. The murky circumstances surrounding this case must be clarified. Did he die as a result of beatings received while detained, as his lawyers suspect? Was he ill and denied appropriate care, as suggested by a military source contacted by RSF? We call on the Cameroonian authorities to end the intolerable silence around this case, to return the journalist’s body to his family, and to conduct a thorough, independent investigation to establish the chain of responsibility and circumstances leading to this tragedy.” CameroonAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Armed conflictsImprisonedJudicial harassmentViolence The failure to produce Wazizi at a hearing before the Fako high court in South-West Region on 28 May in response to a habeas corpus petition by his lawyers reinforced their previously expressed fears that he was probably dead.

His death was confirmed by the head of the Cameroonian National Journalists’ Union (SNJC). And, when reached by RSF, a senior military officer who is very close to the case said that Wazizi had been “ill” and, without giving any further details. Another source at the Yaounde military hospital said that the journalist’s body arrived at the morgue on Monday “under heavy securitu escort.” Receive email alerts News Cameroonian journalist Paul Chouta sentenced and fined in defamation case News News Citing “sources close to the military high command,” privately-owned Equinoxe TV reported during its 8 p.m. news programme on 2 June that Wazizi, a local TV presenter based in Buea, the capital of the English-speaking South-West Region, died during his transfer to Cameroon’s capital, Yaoundé, on an unknown date after his arrest in August 2019. Follow the news on Cameroon Cameroon is ranked 134th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index, three places lower than in 2019. The last time a journalist died in detention in Cameroon was on 22 April 2010, when Cameroun Express editor Ngota Ngota Germain, also known as Bibi Ngota, died in Yaoundé’s Kondengui prison. The authorities said his death was “the result of HIV-related opportunistic infections” but his family believed his died because he was denied appropriate care for his asthma and hypertension. Neither communication minister and government spokesman René Emmanuel Sadi nor the head of communications at the defence ministry responded to RSF’s calls and messages.

Talapatra noted,”That it is a matter of public knowledge that the number of Coronavirus cases in the state is steadily increasing and has reached a high figure.”The Court acknowledged the fact that the number of deaths related to Coronavirus is also on the rise. Recent newspaper reports particularly published in vernacular language have reported the plight of the patients and relatives of those who have been tested positive of the virus. Certain shortcomings in the public health care system are projected.Further, the Court observed,”While recognizing the need to allow the Government to do its duty during these difficult times, this Court is of the opinion that the time has come when the Court needs to make inquiries from the Government with respect to the issues revolving around the handling of coronavirus spread in the State and more particularly of providing health care to those who are tested positive.” (emphasis supplied)Important observations made by the High CourtThe Court took into account the following points:* Taking the example of a COVID Centre, the court noted that the number of patients admitted at the said centre was higher than the total number of beds available.* In the entire State, it appears that there are only 19 ventilators available, all at AGMC and GBP hospital, Agartala. This would imply that all patients with acute breathing problem and who are required to be put on a ventilator would have to be shifted to Agartala.* If such a situation develops suddenly, shifting the patient from a remote area would be a challenge.* The Court also came across a newspaper report published in Daily Desher Katha describing the plight of a corona patient who took discharge from AGMC and GBP hospital in order to admit himself at ILS hospital, Agartala which is a private hospital, but was refused admission.Consequently, the Court noted that these and various other issues require further examination. Under the circumstances, the Court sent the notice to the respondents, returnable for 18th September 2020.The respondents have to file a reply before the returnable date, particularly providing the following details:1- The number of active corona cases in the State, if possible with district wise break-up.2- The number of corona treatment centres with the break-up of which are fully equipped with necessary infrastructure, medicines and medical and paramedical staff.3- Whether there is any private hospital in the State which has been given permission to admit coronavirus patients. If yes, the maximum capacity of such hospital(s) to admit such patients and the treatment charges which these hospitals have been authorized by the Government to collect from the patients.4- Steps taken by the administration to ensure that the relatives of the patients are updated about the health condition and the treatment being given to the patient as well as to ensure the communication between the patient and his/her relatives.5- Details of the fund allocation at different Government hospitals treating corona patients. The break-up of the funds available for corona treatment and treatment for other ailments if bifurcated shall be provided.6- Details of availability of essential equipment such as oxygen supply devices, PPE Kits for doctors and paramedical staff etc.7- Details of availability of doctors and paramedical staff at each corona treatment centre and the assessed requirement of such medical and paramedical staff as also, the basis on which such assessment has been made by the State.Lastly, the Court remarked,”We are sure the Government would address the concerns of the general public as are projected by the print media and take such measures as are necessary to improve the condition in Government treatment centres.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more
