November 15, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Witness retracts, testifies in court that defendant did not shoot journalist RSF_en News Organisation Follow the news on Mexico Salvador Cabrera, one of the five witnesses of the 6 April fatal shooting of Televisa correspondent Amado Ramírez in Acapulco, in the southern state of Guerrero, told an Acapulco court yesterday that the accused killer, Genaro Vázquez Durán, was not the person who shot him. According to the Acapulco-based daily El Sur, when a court official led six men, including the defendant, into the courtroom, Cabrera said none of them was the killer and that the person he saw running away from the murder scene was a bit taller and thinner, and had a shaven head.Cabrera was questioned twice, on 7 and 18 April, by prosecutor Gustavo Vázquez Muñoz. On the second occasion, he refused to sign a statement, saying the prosecutor had encouraged him to identify Vázquez Duran as the killer. He later told Televisa the prosecutor could have manipulated his testimony.The prosecutor yesterday asked the judge to pay no heed to this retraction, claiming that the witness was “trying to render a service to the defendant” by giving “baseless” evidence.——–10.04.07 – Murdered journalist’s radio programme taken off the airThe news programme “Al tanto” that had been presented by journalist Amado Ramírez on Radiorama Acapulco before he was murdered on 6 April was taken off the air yesterday after the station received threats. Ramírez, who was also correspondent for the Acapulco TV station Televisa, was killed during a wave of reprisals by drug-traffickers. The day after his murder, the Radiorama Acapulco security guard got an anonymous phone call warning that “we haven’t finished yet” and saying that Misael Habana, the co-presenter of “Al tanto,” would be the next target. Habana said Ramírez had received telephoned death threats a month ago._______________________________________________________________07.04.07 – TV correspondent gunned down in Acapulco amid wave of killingsReporters Without Borders today called for the federal authorities to be fully involved in the investigation into yesterday’s murder of Amado Ramírez, the correspondent of the privately-owned TV station Televisa, in Acapulco, in the southern state of Guerrero, in a wave of killings that has left 14 dead in the past 24 hours.“Ramírez’s death must be taken seriously by the authorities,” the press freedom organisation said. “Given the scale of the violence that has affected three states, there must be a major effort to establish the circumstances of this journalist’s execution-style killing and to identify those responsible. And the case must be handled at the federal level.”Ramírez was shot three times by a gunman who had followed him as he left his work place in downtown Acapulco, Televisa said. The authorities blamed drug traffickers for three other murders yesterday in Guerrero state. A total of ten other people were murdered in the northwestern state of Sinaloa and the northeastern state of Tamaulipas.The federal prosecutor’s office meanwhile reported that a total of 384 people suspected of involvement in drug trafficking have been murdered in Mexico since 15 March.

A recent column in the newspaper called one of MBC’s programmes “contrary to society’s customs.”“This quarrel between news media reflects strong pressure from the government, which does not tolerate news media broaching subjects that are considered too daring for Saudi society,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Al Watan’s meddling opens the way for widespread press freedom violations in Saudi Arabia. The media need to be protected and encouraged to tackle a wide range of subjects that open up to the world.”MBC presenter Lajine Amrane spoke about problems linked to adolescent sexuality in one of her recent “Good morning, Arabs!” programmes. Al Watan deputy editor Abdallah El-Kabie called the broadcast “contrary to society’s customs” in an editorial on 15 April. “It encourages adolescents to be insolent and violate social customs,” he told Reporters Without Borders.Amrane described his comments as a “violation of freedom of expression” and called for an apology from Al Watan and its staff.Broadcast from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day except Thursday and Friday, “Good morning, Arabs!” is targeted above all at women and tackles a wide range of subjects including health, fashion and beauty.

We reiterate our appeal to the UN Security Council to end the impunity by referring to the situation in Syria to the International Criminal Court.” Tortured and mistreated in detention, Raslan was reportedly transferred to a hospital and died of his injuries there. Rumours of his death in detention already circulated in the latter part of 2013 but could not be confirmed at the time.Raslan was at the offices of the government newspaper Al-Fida’a in Hama when military intelligence officers arrested him on 2 October 2012 over a cartoon critical of President Assad.Ever since the start of the uprising in 2011, he had been publishing pro-opposition cartoons anonymously on Arabic-language news websites (including those of Al-Jarida and Al-Jazeera) as well as on his own blog and on social networks.The author of more than 300 published cartoons, he became well known for his commitment to the Syrian people and for criticizing the regime’s repressive practices and human rights violations. In 2013, Cartoonists Rights Network International awarded him its Courage in Editorial Cartooning prize.Ranked 177th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Syria is one of the world’s most dangerous countries for media personnel, with at least 47 journalists and 135 online information providers killed since the start of the conflict in March 2011.At least 30 journalists and online information providers continue to be held by the Syrian government while at least 29 other journalists (including nine foreigners) are either missing or being held hostage by Islamic State or other armed extremist groups. Receive email alerts News March 8, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is stunned to learn that well-known Syrian cartoonist Akram Raslan died in detention in 2013, less than a year after his arrest in October 2012, and that his death was almost certainly the result of having been tortured by the Syrian security services.
Print Facebook THE judge in the trial of a Limerick solicitor accused of deceiving a client of €7,500 has directed the jury to enter a not guilty verdict after a legal issue arose where a “grave prejudiced has been suffered” by the defendant because of the absence of crucial evidence in the case. Denis McMahon, (58) a former partner with McMahon O’Brien Downes, stood accused of dishonestly obtaining monies from a client, Margaret Duggan, after her personal injuries claim with a former employer was settled for €65,000 and not €57,500 as she said she was told.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Judge Pauline Codd said that she was satisfied with the application made by the defence after the court heard legal arguments that a fundamental piece of evidence was not presented in the prosecution case.Margaret Duggan, repeatedly told the court, that she only ever dealt with Denis McMahon during the process of negotiations in her case and that she never spoke to the late Seamus McKenna, SC, who had been nominated to act on her behalf.It was conceded by the prosecution that Mr McKenna, a notably fearless negotiator, “would have been extremely careful to avoid any miscommunication” and to always be sure to take instruction from the client he represented.” This, Judge Pauline Codd, said would have made it both “unlikely and improbable” that Mr McKenna was not involved in the negotiations.Judge Codd said that it was a “crucial element to the case” that Mr McKenna, having been identified by Mr McMahon as the person he instructed to act for Ms Duggan in the negotiations, when he was first interviewed and questioned by An Garda Siochana in April 2008.No explanation was given as to why the late Mr McKenna was not interviewed after this identification made by the solicitor.Making his application to the court, Brendan Grehan, SC, said that the absence of the evidence of Mr McKenna, who passed away over two years after Mr McMahon was interviewed, was fundamental to the defenceJudge Codd, quoting a Supreme Court ruling, noted that it was the obligation of the prosecution to procure evidence from all witnesses in a case. In this instance, she said that, “to prevent any possible injustice”, the court was constitutionally obliged to “prohibit the trial from proceeding any further”.Stating that the contentious point of evidence that Ms Duggan says she had no dealings with Mr McKenna and that she only ever dealt with Mr McMahon, despite the State witnesses verifying that the barrister was involved, was a point that could not be resolved given the “unavailability of a Statement from Mr McKenna”Judge Codd, before directing the jury to return a not guilty verdict, added that “The credibility of Ms Duggan is at issue and a grave prejudiced has been suffered by the accused”.In addressing the jury, Judge Codd said that “after considerable legal argument, I’m directing that you enter a ‘not guilty verdict by direction of the trial judge’ on the issue paper.Above: Solicitor Denis McMahon, who was found not guilty of dishonestly obtaining money from a client and Margaret Duggan pictured with her husband Donal Previous articleFootballers take on Offaly in NFLNext articleMunster look to win in Cork admin Email Linkedin WhatsApp Twitter NewsLocal NewsJudge directs Limerick solicitor be acquitted of deception chargeBy admin – February 7, 2013 2055 Advertisement

If your job in estate agency seems a little underpaid, with a lack of paid leave contributing to that work/play balance, you could be working for the wrong people.In what Arun Estates describes as, “The ongoing, industry-wide battle to recruit and retain the best staff” the group has significantly upped the ante by introducing sweeping new improvements to pay and conditions for in-branch staff across all four of its regional brands – Douglas Allen in Essex, Ward & Partners in Kent, Cubitt & West in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, and Pittis on the Isle of Wight.Among the changes announced by Group Managing Director David Lench is an across-the-board increase in basic salaries of up to 20 per cent and a new 33-day minimum annual leave entitlement. Arun also pays sales staff annual leave commission, which makes up for sales opportunities lost while they are enjoying themselves on holiday.Alongside higher basic pay and more annual leave, Arun staff will also enjoy shorter hours and reduced Saturday working, while all branches will be closed on Bank Holidays. Service levels to customers will be maintained via telephone access to the Group’s central sales team, open 8am to 8pm seven days a week.Announcing the new package, David Lench said, “Despite the enormous changes that technology has brought to the industry, estate agency remains above all a people business, and in such a competitive environment, recruitment and retention of top quality staff is vitally important and uniquely challenging.“For us, that not only means ensuring that Arun staff have all the training and support they need to achieve the best possible results for themselves and for the company, but in the process also enabling them to enjoy a better work/life balance. Through our recruitment partners we continually review what is happening in the marketplace in terms of salary and benefits, and we are confident that these latest changes keep us significantly ahead of the game as a preferred employer.” Arun Estates arun estates pay rises arun estates salaries david lench david lench arun estates August 21, 2017Sheila ManchesterWhat’s your opinion?
