Opposition press resumes publishing

first_img Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts November 27, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en ————-10.05.2011 – Press in turmoil after Gbagbo fallReporters Without Borders is disturbed by developments in Côte d’Ivoire, where a month after Laurent Gbagbo’s fall, a question mark hangs over press freedom. Newspapers loyal to the deposed leader are failing to appear or are even under occupation by backers of President Alassane Ouattara.”The absence of an opposition press constitutes a major blow to press freedom in Côte d’Ivoire,” the press freedom organization said.“Under these conditions we fear that the reign of a single, orthodox way of thinking is coming into being. The government of Alassane Ouattara raises expectations in the field of respect of liberties. It must satisfy them.”Although some journalists who were under threat have in the end been able to resume work, opposition papers that backed Gbagbo are still not appearing and the offices of the daily Notre Voie, which supports Gbagbo’s Ivorian Popular Front (FPI) party, are even under armed occupation.“We express our disappointment and call on the new authorities to take rapid action to restore a climate of confidence among journalists and above all to allow opposition newspapers to prepare to go on sale again,” Reporters Without Borders said.There is no official obstacle to the appearance of opposition newspapers but the sacking of the editorial offices of the dailies Notre Voie and Le Temps and an arson attack on their printing works have resulted in major damage. Furthermore the editorial offices of Notre Voie have been occupied for some time by troops of the pro-Ouattara Republican Forces of Côte d’Ivoire (FRCI), which are preventing access by journalists.

His words appeared to amount to a warning.”Freedom yes, but it has its limits,” he said.“Freedom has a certain boundary. You can no longer talk of freedom when it transcends certain values. People thought there was unlimited impunity. They have to realise that this is no longer possible. You cannot destabilise the social fabric just because you are a journalist.”Bakayoko added: “We are not going to accept that the press drags down Côte d’Ivoire. The press bears a major responsibility in this crisis. Newspapers and journalists wanted to be in the vanguard of politicians, they wanted to go further than the politicians.”Reporters Without Borders further condemns the manner in which the Ivorian press persistently publishes articles singling out certain well-known figures for public hatred.On 10 May the daily Nord-Sud published a picture of the editor of Notre Voie, César Etou, to illustrate an article headlined: “César Etou fans the flames of hatred.” It accused him of having contacted human rights organizations to complain about the lack of respect of the rights of the ex-president’s wife, Simone Gbagbo, and her entourage since their arrest.While awaiting the resumption of broadcasting by state-owned Radio-Télévision Ivoirienne (RTI), Reporters Without Borders urges Télévision Côte d’Ivoire (TCI) to act as a public service medium and to stop broadcasting the campaign slogans and songs that Ouattara used when he was a candidate. TCI was created by the Ouattara camp as part of a resistance movement but, now that he is president and it has replaced RTI, it should address all Ivorians.Insofar as broadcasting is still entirely under government control in Côte d’Ivoire, the new authorities should clarify TCI’s exact current status. When it was created in early 2011, it was a pirate station.Reporters Without Borders finally notes that the National Council for Broadcasting Communication (CNCA) has been turned into the High Authority for Broadcasting Communication. Former communication minister Ibrahim Sy Savané’s appointment to head the new body is a promising sign of inclusiveness. Reporters Without Borders hopes his appointment will give an impetus to reforms that will open up broadcasting. “This is an entirely new situation,” Reporters Without Borders said.“In the past the offices of the Patriote, a daily that supports Ouattara, were attacked and badly damaged, but never occupied as is the case today with Notre Voie. We do not understand the behaviour of the FRCI, who are in flagrant violation of the right of the staff of this newspaper to go to their place of work. ” Notre Voie, a daily that supports former President Laurent Gbagbo’s Ivorian Popular Front (FPI), was on sale today in Abidjan for the first time since Gbagbo’s ouster on 11 April. The newspaper’s premises had been ransacked and occupied by soldiers loyal to the new President, Alassane Ouattara, which prevented its journalists from working.Officers from the Press Support and Development Fund (FSDP) last week visited the headquarters of pro-Gbagbo newspapers that were attacked and ransacked during the prolonged post-election crisis. Other pro-Gbagbo newspapers such as Le Temps, Le Nouveau Courrier d’Abidjan, Le Quotidien d’Abidjan and Prestige Mag are expected to resume publishing in the next few days.After President Ouattara took control, Reporters Without Borders voiced concern that the pro-Gbagbo press would be suppressed at the expensive of media diversity. Although Notre Voie was guilty of excesses in the past, Reporters Without Borders regards its reappearance as an encouraging sign of respect for pluralism.

first_imgE-commerce platform Shopee has found a significant increase in male users buying ingredients as food sales on its platform surged during the social distancing period.Shopee Indonesia director Handhika Jahja said men’s purchases of fresh, frozen and instant food products had increased six-fold compared to last year, suggesting that men had been making more home-cooked meals during the quarantine.Read also: Frozen meals become hot seller for quarantined Indonesians “Consumers found comfort in online shopping while they need to stay home because of the pandemic, and we see this shift as long-term evolution,” he said in a statement on Thursday.He noted that shoppers were relying on e-commerce for daily needs, especially food and beverage, while sellers used online platforms to reach consumers amid the outbreak.Shopee recorded a sharply increasing trend of re-ordering food items last month, with diced meat, frozen kebab, instant coffee, rice, soy sauce and sugar becoming the most popular products. Food product variation had doubled over the last year.The company also found that online food purchases from outside the Jakarta area had tripled in the last few months.

Wenger: No one close to United

first_img Press Association Wenger allowed Van Persie to be sold to Manchester United last summer, in a lucrative £24million deal which City boss Roberto Mancini believes swung the balance of power back to Old Trafford. However, the French coach believes the way United have pulled clear this season is not simply down to the contribution of one player. “You can say that Robin had an impact, but the other teams are not as close this year like Man City, who were always top last year. This year it was one-way traffic,” said Wenger. “The difference is that City has dropped off.” He added: “United lost only on goal difference last year and if QPR did not know that they were safe, they (United) would have won it last year. “The game (against Manchester City) finished later. They (QPR) knew they were safe in added time. “Don’t you think that they knew? It is a kind of relief and could have contributed to the fact that they lost in the final two or three minutes.” A personal phone call from United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to Wenger helped push through the deal for Van Persie. The Arsenal manager, however, is adamant the club was put in an almost no-win situation because the Holland international did not want to sign a new deal. “The real issue was that Robin had only one year to go and he didn’t want to extend,” said Wenger. “You would face the same problem this year. Even if he had an exceptional season, he would be free, he will go somewhere else – and then people still say, ‘why did you let him go’?” Arsenal trail United by 21 points heading into the final four matches of what has been another frustrating Premier League campaign chasing Champions League qualification rather than mounting a long-overdue sustained title challenge. center_img Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes Manchester City’s drop in consistency had a bigger impact on the Barclays Premier League title race than just the goals of Robin van Persie.last_img read more

Gunners down Reds in style

first_img Hector Bellerin rolled in a superb curling effort, with Mesut Ozil’s free-kick and a blistering 20-yard strike from Alexis Sanchez effectively settling the contest before a fine late effort from Olivier Giroud sealed Arsenal’s seventh straight league victory. Liverpool netted a consolation penalty through captain Jordan Henderson – awarded for a foul on Sterling – but then saw Emre Can sent off for two yellow cards as a second successive defeat dealt a potentially fatal blow to their hopes of a top-four finish, Arsenal had made a blistering start. Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet saved from Santi Cazorla and then was alert to divert a low shot from Aaron Ramsey, with Mamadou Sakho stabbing clear as Cazorla looked set for a tap-in. Protest groups from both sets of supporters had missed the opening 10 minutes, lobbying outside the ground at ticket prices in the wake of the new broadcast deal, while some of those inside also held banners against the rising cost of watching live Premier League football. Liverpool, without suspended skipper Steven Gerrard and centre-half Martin Skrtel, had weathered the early storm and looked a threat on the counter. Sterling should have opened the scoring in the 21st minute. Lazar Markovic was played into the right side of the Arsenal penalty area by Phillippe Coutinho, and he elected to square for Sterling. However, t he England forward had not anticipated the pass and could not apply the finishing touch as the ball ran away from him. Sterling was soon back on his feet, flashing a low, angled drive just wide from 20 yards. Press Association Arsenal kept up the pressure at the top of the Barclays Premier League as Liverpool were blown away 4-1 at the Emirates Stadium, where Reds contract rebel Raheem Sterling failed to make an impact. However, Arsenal took the lead via the unlikely source of Bellerin, who curled home a superb effort on 37 minutes. Ozil fed Ramsey on the right, and the Welshman in turn laid the ball off to the full-back. Spaniard Bellerin, 20, waltzed around Alberto Moreno before despatching a sublime low shot into the bottom left corner. Before Liverpool could regroup, they were 2-0 down. Ozil was tripped by Sakho just outside the penalty arc. The German playmaker – who came in for criticism following his trip to a Berlin nightclub after missing Arsenal’s win at Newcastle before the international break through illness – took the free-kick himself, curling the dead ball around the wall and past Mignolet. It got worse for the visitors just before the break when Sanchez rifled in a third. Ramsey played the ball up into the path of Sanchez. The Chile forward – a target for Liverpool before his £32million summer move to Arsenal – stepped inside Toure before blasting the ball up over Mignolet into the roof of the net. Liverpool made a change for the second half, with Daniel Sturridge replacing Markovic, the forward having pulled out of England duty during the international break through injury. Arsenal also soon were forced into a substitution as Laurent Koscielny hobbled off and Brazilian Gabriel Paulista came on. In the 55th minutes, Giroud’s bullet header was brilliantly tipped over by Mignolet, before Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina had to be alert to deflect a snapshot from Can behind at the other end. Ramsey appeared to have hurt his ankle, and was replaced by Mathieu Flamini on 62 minutes. With the hard work done, Arsenal took their foot off the gas, which saw Liverpool’s pressure result in a penalty when Bellerin tripped Sterling on 76 minutes. Henderson squeezed the spot-kick past Ospina into the bottom left corner, but momentum was lost when Can picked up his second yellow card with five minutes remaining following a foul on substitute Danny Welbeck. Cazorla’s curling 18-yard effort shaved the outside of the post, before Giroud cut inside to blast home a left-foot shot into the top corner to continue his fine scoring form. All the pre-match headlines had been over Sterling’s declaration he was “not a money-grabbing 20-year-old” despite rejecting Liverpool’s offer of a new deal, said to be worth some £100,000-a-week. However, the England forward blew his big chance to show why he is worth a pay rise, unable to convert a golden chance in the first half before Arsenal stuck three goals in the space of just eight minutes to settle matters. last_img read more
