Strong free cash flow generation is also expected as a result of the deal.The combined business would have a diversified geographical footprint and, by offering sports betting, poker, casino, fantasy sports and free-to-play games, a wide product range.Flutter also noted the merger would accelerate delivery of its four pillar growth strategy, whereby it will maximise profitable growth in its core markets, boost growth in international markets, attain new podium positions in key territories such as Spain, Italy and Germany, and allow it to pursue US expansion opportunities.Flutter chief executive Peter Jackson, who would assume the same role at the combined business, said: “The combination represents a great opportunity to deliver a step change in our presence in international markets and ensure we are ideally positioned to take advantage of the exciting opportunity in the US through a media relationship with Fox Sports as well as our development of US sports betting through Flutter’s FanDuel and TSG’s Fox Bet brands.“We believe the combination of Flutter and TSG will deliver substantial value for shareholders. We will have an exceptional portfolio of leading recreational brands and best-in-class products on industry-leading technology platforms.”Jackson would sit on a 14-person board at the combined business, with other key members of staff to take on certain management roles. Flutter chief financial officer Jonathan Hill would assume the role at combined group, while TSG chief executive Rafi Ashkenazi would serve as chief operating officer.Meanwhile, Flutter chair Gary McGann would become chair of the combined group, with Divyesh Gadhia, currently executive chairman of TSG, serving as deputy chair. Richard Flint, formerly Sky Betting & Gaming CEO, would become a non-executive director of the business.“This exciting combination will allow us to enhance and accelerate our existing strategy,” Ashkenazi said. “In recent years, we have transformed TSG from a single product operator in poker, to a diverse global leader with multiple product offerings across poker, gaming and sports betting.“The combination with Flutter will further enhance our company’s core strengths, and position us strongly for the future in this rapidly evolving industry. I’m delighted to be joining the board of the combined group and to serve as its COO.”The merger remains subject to various conditions, including approval of Flutter and TSG Shareholder. This is not expected to happen until the second quarter of 2020, the deal requiring the support of at least 66% of TSG shareholders in order to go ahead.Other closing conditions include approval from the FCA, London Stock Exchange and Euronext Dublin, as well as the satisfaction of various merger controls, foreign investment and gaming related approvals in the UK, Ireland, Australia, the US and Canada.Should the deal gain all of the necessary approvals, Flutter and TSG said they hope to complete the deal during the second or third quarter of next year.In addition to this, there is also consideration for economic alignment of Flutter’s and TSG’s strategic third party relationships across their US businesses. Flutter has entered into arrangements, conditional on completion of the deal, with Fox Sports, Fastball Holdings and Boyd Interactive Gaming.Fox Sports, TSG’s US media partner for Fox Bet, will have the right to purchase an 18.5% equity interest in FanDuel Group at its market value in 2021.“Our Fox Bet partnership is off to a great start, and teaming up with Flutter and FanDuel will allow us to build on that strength and jointly capture the significant market potential ahead of us,” Fox Corporation executive chairman and CEO Lachlan Murdoch commented. “We’re excited to be able to expand our partnership into FanDuel, which together with FOX Bet, will be a leader in sports wagering in the US.”Meanwhile, Boyd, Flutter’s co-shareholder in FanDuel, and Fastball will receive a payment of 12.5% of the increase in Fox Bet’s market value between completion of the merger and the exercise of Flutter’s option to acquire Fastball’s remaining equity interest in FanDuel in July 2023.In return, Fox Sports, Fastball and Boyd have waived exclusivity provisions that form part of the existing contractual arrangements in relation to the relevant US subsidiaries of TSG and Flutter.McGann said: “This is an exciting and transformational combination that will bring together two strong, complementary businesses to create a global leader in the fast-growing online sports betting and gaming industry.“The combined group will be a strong voice in the promotion of responsible gaming worldwide and will lead industry standards on the protection of customers, whilst building sustainable relationships with them.”center_img Finance Tags: Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Flutter Entertainment, the parent company of Paddy Power Betfair, has agreed a deal to acquire all of the shares in The Stars Group and merge with the operator to form a combined business with annual revenue of £3.8bn (€4.3bn/$4.7bn).

Le plan quinquennal vise à revitaliser l’école et à traiter de la sécurité alimentaire et économique Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Smithfield, NC Un jour de février, un employé arrosait les semis dans la serre du Centre d’agriculture St-Barnabas à Terrier-Rouge en Haïti. Situé dans le Nord du pays dans la plaine côtière, l’école de près de 200 hectares est à 2 km de l’Océan atlantique. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service –Terrier-Rouge, Haïti] Récemment, un matin de février, un jeune Haïtien perché sur son tracteur John Deere labourait les champs pour les préparer aux premiers semis de l’année au Centre d’agriculture St-Barnabas, collège épiscopal situé sur près de 200 hectares de plaines côtières fertiles au Nord d’Haïti.Pendant que le tracteur retournait le sol d’argile foncée, le préparant pour les semis, deux jeunes hommes travaillaient à la réparation d’une fissure dans le réservoir à eau en ciment, deux autres arrachaient les mauvaises herbes d’un champ de carottes et deux autres encore se servaient d’arrosoirs en plastique bleu et vert pour arroser à la main les betteraves, les carottes et les légumes feuilles verts qui poussaient sur les terrains test et les semis qui prenaient vie dans la serre. Un autre jeune homme conduisait le bétail vers l’arrière de la propriété alors que d’autres continuaient à défricher plus de terrains pour le tracteur et des plantations futures.Pendant ce temps, des élèves vêtus d’un polo identique avec écrit au dos en grosses lettres capitales « CASB », correspondant au « Centre d’agriculture St-Barnabas », étudiaient dans la salle de classe.Les premiers signes d’une vie abondante suite à une période de difficultés financières et de sécheresse étaient visibles partout ; c’est une subvention de 100 000 dollars reçue en 2014 du Diocèse épiscopal de Long Island qui a aidé St-Barnabas à démarrer sa revitalisation.Étienne Saint-Ange, coordonnateur des opérations sur le terrain, parle avec des ouvriers qui désherbent les carottes dans le terrain test, où des plantes sont testées afin d’évaluer leur viabilité. Toutes les cultures de l’école sont biologiques. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service« St-Barnabas a été créé au nom de Dieu et c’est au même nom de Dieu que St-Barnabas va revivre » déclare Étienne Saint-Ange, coordonnateur des opérations sur le terrain, en créole par l’intermédiaire d’un interprète.Pendant une décennie, le Centre d’agriculture St-Barnabas a fonctionné sans soutien financier, poursuivant néanmoins sa mission de formation de techniciens agricoles. La moitié de la population travaille dans l’agriculture mais une majorité de Haïtiens n’ont pas assez à manger et 30 % de tous les enfants souffrent de malnutrition. C’est Étienne Saint-Ange et d’autres membres dévoués du personnel qui ont continué à faire fonctionner l’école, vivant des produits cultivés dans ses champs.« Ce sont les dirigeants du collège qui l’ont maintenu en activité de 2005 à 2014 » confie Dan Tootle, missionnaire bénévole de l’Église épiscopale qui sert de chef de programme de St-Barnabas. En décembre 2015, le corps enseignant a reçu sept mois de rappel de salaires, soit une petite somme sur les 140 000 dollars qui leur sont dus. « Cela ne va pas constituer un véritable obstacle car les gens qui ont réussi à maintenir ce lieu en vie reprennent maintenant espoir » ajoute Dan Tootle.Dan Tootle, missionnaire bénévole de l’Église épiscopale, travaille sans relâche sur le projet de revitalisation de St-Barnabas qui est destiné à faire du collège agricole un centre régional d’agriculture et de développement économique. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceDan Tootle, missionnaire de 74 ans, qui est en Haïti depuis 1999, année où la paroisse St. Martin’s-in-the-Field de Severna Park, dans le Maryland, l’a parrainé. Il est devenu missionnaire bénévole nommé par l’Église épiscopale en 2013 et depuis lors concentre ses efforts sur St-Barnabas, où il travaille au projet quinquennal de revitalisation de 11,7 millions de dollars qui va moderniser le collège et le transformer en un centre régional d’agriculture et de développement économique. Il emploiera également plus de 180 personnes.« Nous avons étudié de près le collège pour déterminer les mesures à prendre pour revitaliser cette institution  » poursuit Dan Tootle, tout en faisant défiler le plan directeur global de 35 pages, version réduite de l’étude complète de 76 pages. « Il ne s’agissait pas simplement de le remettre en état pour faire ce qu’il faisait dans le passé mais de le faire progresser vers ce qui est nécessaire au 21ème siècle, au-delà des simples fins agricoles traditionnelles en Haïti ».À terme, le collège devra être autonome et capable d’apporter de l’aide à d’autres institutions diocésaines.Aujourd’hui dans sa cinquième itération, après avoir recueilli les réactions des personnes intéressés au niveau régional et effectué la dotation de tout le personnel, la première phase de 2,5 ans comporte la construction de nouvelles installations d’enseignement et la préparation de terrains avec drainage et accès adéquats ainsi que d’autres travaux de base. La seconde phase d’1,5 an comporte l’infrastructure nécessaire pour l’élevage et la transformation des animaux ainsi que la création d’un centre régional de soutien agricole. La troisième et dernière phase comporte la construction d’un dortoir pour 250 élèves internes ainsi que du reste des bâtiments administratifs et de soutien. D’autres projets consistent à établir un partenariat avec FreshMinistries concernant l’aquaponie, à créer des vergers et à cultiver des plantes comme le sisal spécialement pour la vente aux transformateurs.Georges Gabriel Étienne, qui enseigne la botanique et les cultures maraîchères, conduit ses élèves pour une leçon en extérieur sur le terrain test. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceLa formation que reçoivent les élèves à St-Barnabas est équivalente à celle que reçoivent les élèves dans un « community college » aux États-Unis, nous dit Dan Tootle, ajoutant qu’il les prépare pour entrer directement dans l’agro-industrie et les exploitations agricoles. À mesure de l’évolution du programme d’études, ajoute-t-il, les élèves seront encouragés à se diriger vers l’entreprenariat et des ressources leur seront données pour les aider à y parvenir.Établi en 1984 en tant que partenariat entre le Diocèse épiscopal d’Haïti et l’Église presbytérienne des États-Unis, St-Barnabas a acquis une réputation d’excellence en matière d’éducation au niveau national avec une remise de diplôme à quelque 30 promotions au fil des années.« Des jeunes provenant de tout le pays viennent ici pour y recevoir la formation de techniciens agricoles » déclare Yves Mary Étienne, l’économiste et diplômé de St-Barnabas qui a rejoint le corps enseignant dans les toutes premières années et y est resté.L’économiste Yves Mary Étienne, arrache du pak-choï du terrain test et le donne à une femme de la communauté pour qu’elle le vendre sur le marché local. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service« St-Barnabas a été créé pour assurer une meilleure formation aux agriculteurs qui n’avaient pas les moyens d’aller à l’école »  poursuit Étienne en créole par l’intermédiaire d’un interprète, ajoutant que les élèves repartent habituellement chez eux et partagent ce qu’ils ont appris au profit de la communauté. « St-Barnabas n’est pas seulement pour le Nord et le Nord-Est, il éduque des élèves du pays tout entier ».Les diplômés de St-Barnabas ont également acquis la réputation d’être bien préparés.En Haïti, il est important que les demandeurs d’emploi aient des références, nous confie Merlotte Pierre, qui est secrétaire et professeur de grammaire française depuis 1997 à St-Barnabas. Un certificat de St-Barnabas est souvent autosuffisant, ajoute-t-elle, également en créole par le biais d’un interprète.Merlotte Pierre enseigne la grammaire française aux élèves qui étudient au Centre d’agriculture St-Barnabas et travaille à la fois comme secrétaire et enseignant de français au collège. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServicePour des élèves comme Jonas Bien-Aimé, 22 ans, qui veut devenir expert agricole et Jouveline Pericles, 21 ans, dont la matière préférée est la conservation des sols et qui un jour aimerait travailler pour une organisation non gouvernementale, St-Barnabas apporte la formation, l’éducation et les compétences nécessaires pour accéder à ces emplois. Les élèves de St-Barnabas apprennent les pratiques agricoles durables ; toutes les cultures sont cultivées biologiquement, fertilisées avec du compost plutôt qu’avec des engrais chimiques et la conservation de l’eau et des sols est une priorité absolue.St-Barnabas est l’une des deux écoles professionnelles de la région Nord d’Haïti qui appartiennent au Diocèse épiscopal d’Haïti – l’autre est l’Esprit-Saint à Cap-Haïtien qui forme des élèves à des emplois de plombiers, électriciens et mécaniciens. À travers le diocèse, qui a le plus grand nombre de fidèles de l’Église épiscopale, l’accent est mis sur l’éducation. Le Diocèse d’Haïti gère plus de 250 écoles primaires et secondaires dans tout le pays qui n’est pas encore entièrement remis du tremblement de terre de force 7 qui a dévasté le pays, tuant des centaines de milliers et déplaçant plus de 1,5 million d’habitants en 2010.Eliza Brinkley, missionnaire du Young Adult Service Corps du diocèse de Caroline du Nord, enseigne l’anglais aux élèves du Centre d’agriculture St-Barnabas. Outre l’agriculture et les techniques agricoles, les élèves étudient l’anglais, le français, l’économie et d’autres matières d’enseignement général.Après le séisme, des gouvernements et des organismes humanitaires internationaux ont promis des milliards de dollars d’aide pour la reconstruction de ce pays des Caraïbes, longtemps considéré comme le plus pauvre de l’hémisphère occidental. Plus de cinq ans après, bon nombre des ONG sont parties et Haïti demeure l’un des pays les plus pauvres au monde. L’Église épiscopale, quant à elle, a maintenu le cap et s’est engagée à reconstruire les institutions diocésaines détruites près de l’épicentre du tremblement de terre proche de la capitale Port-Au-Prince, au Sud. Le Bureau de développement de l’Église épiscopale dirige l’effort de reconstruction.« Parallèlement à la reconstruction de la Cathédrale de la Sainte-Trinité et de l’École Saint-Vincent pour les handicapés, St-Barnabas est une priorité pour le Bureau de développement car son existence viendra renforcer et soutenir la mission et le ministère du diocèse » déclare Tara Elgin Holley, directeur du développement de l’Église épiscopale.« En outre, la revitalisation du collège et des 200 hectares sur lesquels il est bâti traite directement de la Cinquième marque de la mission qui est  de « s’efforcer de préserver l’intégrité de la création et de maintenir et renouveler la vie de la terre ».Bien que la moitié des 10 millions d’habitants du pays exercent une activité agricole, Haïti importe la moitié de sa nourriture, pour une grande partie de son voisin, la République Dominicaine.« Cultiver des centaines d’hectares de cultures qui peuvent être récoltées et vendues localement est une perspective enthousiasmante, pas simplement pour les élèves de St-Barnabas mais pour la région, » ajoute Tara Holley. « Apprendre aux jeunes provenant de tout le pays à être des techniciens agricoles et des propriétaires de petites entreprises aidera à créer un avenir meilleur pour beaucoup de gens. Et le revenu de la vente des récoltes permettra au collège de soutenir son propre budget opérationnel et de rendre durable son existence continue ».L’élan donné pour la revitalisation de St-Barnabas « était présent mais dormant depuis un certain temps » nous dit Dan Tootle.Le Centre d’agriculture St-Barnabas est situé sur une grande ligne de faille. L’école a construit des salles de classe et des bâtiments administratifs provisoires car le bâtiment d’origine risque de s’effondrer si un événement sismique venait à se produire. Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceEn 2014, deux choses clés se sont produites, explique-t-il : Le Comité permanent du Diocèse a pris le contrôle direct de la revitalisation de St-Barnabas, y appliquant de bons principes de gouvernance. Et le Diocèse de Long Island a fait à St-Barnabas un don de 100 000 dollars sans restriction, ce qui a permis au collège de faire les mises à niveau immédiates, comme de construire des bâtiments provisoires, d’acheter des semences et du compost, d’effectuer la maintenance des puits et de relier St-Barnabas au réseau électrique du village Caracol.Le don du Diocèse de Long Island faisait partie d’une dîme, confie l’Évêque Larry Provenzano.Le diocèse avait vendu un bien de l’église au centre ville de Brooklyn et, avant d’en investir le produit, a effectué plus de 2 millions de subventions à des ministères nationaux et internationaux.« Nous avons une grande population haïtienne dans le diocèse et nous avions entendu parlé des travaux effectués en Haïti » poursuit l’Évêque Provenzano, en ajoutant que l’appui donné à St-Barnabas était une décision facile qui s’accordait bien avec l’engagement du diocèse envers une  « théologie écologique ».En sus de l’appui apporté par le diocèse de Long Island, St-Barnabas a reçu l’appui d’autres organismes, notamment du Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes, du Diocèse de New York et du Diocèse de Californie. Avec l’appui de l’Évêque de Californie Marc Andrus, le missionnaire bénévole pour Haïti Davidson Bidwell-Waite et son mari Edwin Bidwell-Waite ont dirigé l’initiative de levée de fonds pour des bourses d’étude et en avril, ils enverront un groupe d’élèves à St-Barnabas pour aider à planter.Outre l’appui de Long Island, St-Barnabas a reçu le soutien d’autres organismes, notamment du Diocèse de Californie, qui en sus de son appui financier et de sa levée de fonds pour des bourses d’étude, enverra un groupe d’étudiants à St-Barnabas en avril pour aider à planter.Tout en continuant sur la voie de la revitalisation, le corps enseignant et les élèves de St-Barnabas cherchent à créer des partenariats avec des personnes individuelles, des paroisses et des diocèses qui seraient intéressés par la gestion de l’environnement et le développement durable ainsi que par le jardinage, l’agriculture, l’élevage animal et l’apiculture, ajoute Tara Holley. « Les partenariats sont ce qui aidera St-Barnabas à se développer et à prospérer… en tant qu’établissement d’enseignement et de centre régional de ressources pour les technologies agricoles ».Pour de plus amples informations sur la manière dont vous, votre paroisse ou votre diocèse pouvez y participer, veuillez cliquer ici.– Lynette Wilson est rédacteur et journaliste de l’Episcopal News Service.   Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Submit a Press Release Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Director of Music Morristown, NJ New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Shreveport, LA TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Haiti Rector Washington, DC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Albany, NY Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Press Release Service Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Martinsville, VA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Associate Rector Columbus, GA Featured Events The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

first_imgWednesday Jun 15, 2016 Jaguares turn into Argentina to beat Italy in once off Test Argentina beat Italy for the sixth time in succession as they held on for a 30-24 win in a once off Test in Santa Fe on Saturday. It was new Italian coach Conor O’Shea’s first match in charge, but he opted to rest regular captain Sergio Parisse.The former Harlequins coach replaced Jacques Brunel on a four-year deal and had to contend with a strong Argentina team, fresh from Super Rugby and featuring exclusively Jaguares players.When Brumbies scrumhalf Tomas Cubelli replaced Martin Landajo, it was the first time there was a player on the field for Argentina that doesn’t play for the Jaguares.Nicolas Sanchez kicked 20 points from six penalties and a conversion as both sides scored two tries apiece, with Manuel Montero and Matias Moroni scoring for the hosts, while Leonardo Sarto and Simone Favaro scored for Italy. The latter came in the 68th minute to provide a tense finish.“Today I saw a team that played with heart for 80 minutes,” said O’Shea. “The team’s desire to recover, the spirit they showed should make us proud. Our journey together has begun, we will become a winning team.”Argentina face France next in the first match of a two-Test series in Tucuman, while Italy travel to San Jose to take on the USA.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Irish property developer Garrett Kelleher has made a donation of $1m (‚€729,000) to the US-Ireland Alliance that will go towards an endowment to fund the Mitchell Scholarship Programme. The donation will be matched by the Irish Government.The programme funds post-graduate scholars in the US to undertake study in Ireland and currently funds around 12 students a year. It was started in 2000 and is named after US Senator George Mitchell.The US-Ireland Alliance, which seeks to foster relations between Ireland and the United States and the Irish Government will match whatever the Alliance raises, up to ‚€20 million over the next five years, to endow its George J. Mitchell Scholarship program. Advertisementcenter_img Alliance president Trina Vargo said that the Alliance seeks to raise ‚€40 million to ensure that the Mitchell Scholarship program is permanently funded, like the Rhodes Scholarship program, which sends future leaders to Oxford for study.

first_img Greece’s new guidelines for policing protests threaten press freedom Organisation The Greek police must show journalists can trust it with their protection after one was murdered and another is threatened April 29, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders, which last visited Greece in September 2011 to investigate the collapse in the media environment and the future of journalism, is alarmed by the steady decline in respect for media freedom and firmly condemns the neo-Nazi abuses against journalists and news media now taking place on an almost daily basis.“The rise of the neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn has unfortunately been accompanied by a very significant increase in abuses against media personnel,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are no longer able to count the number of journalists and bloggers who have been threatened or physically attacked by extreme right-wing bullies.“Attacks on private or professional property, home-made bomb attacks on offices or homes, intimidation by phone or email, and threats to family members are now part of everyday life for many news providers, who usually ask not to be named to avoid drawing attention and thereby remain at least minimally ‘employable.’“Any article or mention that is the least bit critical of Golden Dawn’s activities elicits reprisals from its supporters that are often public and even openly acknowledged. By branding news media and their employees as ‘enemies of the nation,’ Gold Dawn is becoming a very strong contender for inclusion in our list of ‘Predators of Freedom of Information.’“We again urge the authorities to quickly address this problem. Their silence and lack of action in the face of the mounting violence against journalists are tantamount to capitulating to the enemies of democracy. Will we really have to wait for a journalist to be killed before investigations are launched and, more importantly, completed?“The continuing impunity for these acts of violence will only encourage these extremists to maintain this climate of hate. It is vital that the negotiations currently under way about a law designed to combat such violence should include guarantees for the media.“The European Parliament is itself finding it hard to help the Greek media. An exhibition of photos by the Professional Association of Greek Press Photographers, showing the dangers to which they are exposed, had been scheduled for 4 June and we deeply regret that the European Parliament’s administration cancelled it at the last minute.”Reporters Without Borders added: “As a recipient of the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize for Freedom Thought in 2005, we hope that the European Parliament will keep its promise to host this exhibition in June in an appropriate place and with the necessary visibility.”The report that Reporters Without Borders issued in 2011 asked, “Could the crisis help media freedom in Greece?” Some journalists used the crisis as an opportunity to create newspapers based on an alternative and more participative method of funding. Reporters Without Borders met the staff of The Newspaper of the Reporters on the day that it produced its 100th issue. This daily is one of the few independent news outlets in Greece and has specialized in investigative journalism and in covering the activities of Golden Dawn. See the video about The Newspaper of the Reporters by RWB The neo-Nazi party’s barbaric behaviour is not just affecting the “traditional” media. The financial crisis and the collapse of the media’s traditional economic model have forced many journalists to seek refuge online.“Even if it means not being paid, you can at least be useful and try to do what is no longer possible to do in the print media,” a former senior journalist with a leading daily told Reporters Without Borders. News websites were still peripheral in 2011, but they are growing in number and are gradually become the main source of news and information for much of the public.Crossfire June 4, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Golden Dawn close to being added to “predators” list Follow the news on Greece February 2, 2021 Find out more Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EUcenter_img GreeceEurope – Central Asia Although the neo-Nazis now pose the main threat for the media, older dangers are still present. Radical anarchist groups attacks reporters during demonstrations, as do the security forces, often with exceptional brutality.The statements and undertakings made to Reporters Without Borders during its 2011 visit have not been translated into any concrete action. The riot police have not changed their behaviour during protests and still regard photographers, cameramen and soundmen as unwelcome witnesses of their use of excessive force.Greece’s journalists are also exposed to judicial persecution, especially when they take too much interest in certain business interests. We hope that the judicial authorities show some common sense during the trial of Kostas Vaxevanis, the editor of the weekly Hot Doc, which is due to start on 10 June.It is vital that Vaxevanis, who was arrested for publishing the so-called “Lagarde” list, is acquitted of all the charges against him.Photo: Sakis Mitrolidis / AFP to go further June 2, 2021 Find out more News News GreeceEurope – Central Asia News News Help by sharing this information last_img read more

first_imgNews June 30, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders challenges the president-elect on gagging laws PanamaAmericas News Robert MénardSecretary-general Your country’s legislation is viewed internationally as reactionary. Some 80 journalists are currently facing legal action for “insulting” public officials or “defamation” and are at risk of being imprisoned for what they have written.We trust you will give this matter your careful consideration.Yours sincerely, December 9, 2016 Find out more Help by sharing this information The organisation confronted president-elect Martín Torrijos Espino on draft constitutional reform proposed by his PRD party saying, “Although Article 33 of the Constitution is an unbelievable collection of press freedom violations, your party is not proposing to abolish a single anti-freedom measure.” December 7, 2016 Find out more PanamaAmericas *Elected on 2 May, Martín Torrijos Espino takes over as president on 1st September 2004, succeeding Mireya Moscoso (1999-2004). Organisation to go further News Dear Mr President-elect,*Reporters Without Borders is astonished at the draft constitutional reform proposed by your party that will leave untouched all the anti-freedom measures in Article 33.According to our sources, the parliamentary commission on justice and constitutional affairs of the legislative assembly began on 24 June 2004 examining a constitutional reform package proposed by the Revolutionary Democratic Party (PRD) of which you are secretary-general. This reform includes rewriting Article 33 in relation to insult to public officials and also deals with obedience towards members of the security forces and seamen to their superiors.As formulated, the draft article maintains the offence of insult and the power of wronged officials to order the imprisonment of the offender without trial. The only change is that the period of imprisonment would not exceed 24 hours while the Constitution currently allows it to be unlimited. Penalties are laid down in Articles 202 and 386 of the legal procedural code and Article 827 of the administrative code and allow imprisonment from three days to two months according to the standing of the elected figure or public official involved.So although Article 33 of the Constitution is an unbelievable collection of press freedom violations, your party is not proposing to abolish a single anti-freedom measure. The offence of insult is maintained, in contradiction of Article 11 of the Declaration of Principles on freedom of expression of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission that says: “Laws that penalise offensive expressions directed at public officials restrict freedom of expression and the right to information.” This article also says that it is normal in a democracy that they should be subject to “greater scrutiny by society”.The draft also plans to keep imprisonment as punishment of an expression of opinion. This despite the fact that in January 2000, the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression clearly stated that “imprisonment as punishment for the peaceful expression of an opinion constitutes a serious violation of human rights.”Thus in contradiction with all legal principles, this draft reform continues to give a legal façade to unfair imprisonment without trial. Putting respect owed by citizens and journalist to public officials on the same footing as obedience of soldiers and sailors to their superiors reveals, at the very least, an authoritarian view of democracy.Article 33 is anachronistic and unworthy of Panama. We call on you as secretary-general of the PRD to revise this draft in removing all reference from paragraph 1 of the current Article 33 that establishes the offence of insult to officials.We urge you as president-elect to undertake in the first 100 days of your presidency to abolish prison sentences for press offences as set out in the criminal code.Such decisions will demonstrate your commitment as president to respect press freedom and your willingness to change Panama’s image.

It also says traffic to its site reached a record 23.5 million visits during May, 8% more than four months ago.The portal also sent 100 million property alerts during May, rivalling Rightmove, and now has 650,000 residential property listings.But the company has not revealed how many agents have been signed up to its platform nor how many have been converted from freebie deals into paying customers, a key plank in its bid to make money.“Our May performance is further evidence that our growth strategy is working,” says OTM CEO Ian Springett (left).“We have delivered another set of record-breaking traffic and leads results for our estate and letting agent customers, many of whom are choosing to list their properties on a ‘New & exclusive’ basis.This is driving traffic to our portal while injecting competition into a market which was previously a ‘duopoly’.“The high volume of instant alert emails now being sent each month shows how our engagement with active property-seekers and the value we deliver to agents are both continuing to grow strongly.”But the results didn’t stir investors in the City. The OTM share price increased by 1p following the latest announcement. The company is due to reveal it’s full-year results on Wednesday.  Ian Springett Rightmove OnTheMarket OTM Zoopla June 10, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
