February 1, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Charges dismissed against former dictator Ríos Montt in journalist’s death Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years News GuatemalaAmericas Guatemala. Don’t put the Guatemalan press in quarantine! to go further Receive email alerts News Organisation Reporters Without Borders today deplored a Guatemalan court’s decision on 30 January to dismiss all charges against former dictator Gen. José Efraín Ríos Montt in connection with the violent rioting by his supporters in July 2003 in which Hector Ramírez, a reporter with the TV station Canal 7, lost his life.Supporters of Ríos Montt, who headed a military government in 1982-83, rampaged through the streets of the capital on 24 July 2003 in support for his bid to take part in presidential elections, attacking journalists who went to cover their demonstration.Aged 61, Ramírez suffered a fatal heart attack while being chased by members of the Guatemalan Republican Front (FRG), the party Ríos Montt founded. Several journalists were beaten, stabbed, or sprayed with petrol. Some news media had to be evacuated. National police chief Raúl Manchame was fired four days later.Manchame pleaded innocent in court on 30 January, while 15 presumed FRG members pleaded guilty to taking part in the street violence. They face sentences of up to a year in prison or fines of 1,455 euros.____________________________________________________________29.07.03 – Police chief fired as a result of 24 July violenceInterior minister Adolfo Reyes yesterday announced the dismissal of national police chief Raul Manchame July because of violent demonstrations on 24 July in which several journalists were attacked and one died of a heart attack.The interior minister said there will an enquiry into the police chief’s role in the disturbances. The police chief said on 26 July that the police had beaten a retreat because the demonstrators were threatening to attack major hotels and embassies.State prosecutor Carlos de León meanwhile said the interior minister should also be dismissed if he is found to share responsibility. The supreme court has appointed judge Alfredo Morales to supervise the enquiry into the incidents and the possible involvement of ruling party members in congress.Gonzalo Marroquín, the managing editor of the daily Prensa Libre, yesterday announced that his newspaper is providing its journalists with flack jackets. “We have bought ten flack jackets that will be used in emergencies,” he said.____________________________________________________________25.07.03 – One journalist dead, five others attacked and newspaper offices evacuated because of violent demonstrations by Ríos Montt supportersReporters Without Borders today voiced deep shock at the death of Hector Ramírez of Radio Sonora and the violence against other journalists yesterday by supporters of Gen. Efraín Ríos Montt, who blame the press for a court decision that is threatening his bid to be presidential candidate for the ruling Guatemala Republican Front (FRG) in the next elections.”The violent attacks by demonstrators against the press are extremely serious and must not remain unpunished,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to President Alfonso Portillo. “It is your duty to ensure that those responsible are identified and punished, and we caution you against any laxity because the assailants came from within the ranks of your own party,” he continued.The letter stressed that Reporters Without Borders was very concerned by yesterday’s violence because it followed threats and attacks against some 10 journalists in recent weeks. “Halting this spiral of violent is a matter of great urgency,” Ménard concluded.Ramírez, 61, died of a heart attack as he was being chased by FRG supporters through the streets of Guatemala City. He worked for the news programme “Notisiete” on the Canal 7 television station as well as for Radio Sonora. Several other journalists came under attack when they tried to approach buildings that had been sealed off by Ríos Montt supporters. Some of the demonstrators wore masks and carried guns or knives. They insulted the journalists, chased them and threatened to beat them.Those attacked included Juan Carlos Torres, a photographer with the daily elPeriódico, and Hector Estrada, a cameraman with the TV station Guatevisión, who managed to escape after demonstrators doused them with petrol in order to burn them alive. Torres, whose camera equipment was destroyed, was hospitalised.The daily Prensa Libre reported that Donald González, a journalist with a local radio station, saw his motorcycle being smashed up and that a photographer with the newspaper Siglo XXI was badly beaten by demonstrators who tried to rob his equipment.The organisation Periodistas Frente a la Corrupción (Journalists against Corruption) for its part reported that Edgar Valle, another journalist with “Notisiete,” and his cameraman were attacked by Ríos Montt supporters outside the supreme court.Agence France-Presse reported that later in the day that the offices of three daily newspapers, Prensa Libre, elPeriódico and Nuestro Diario, had to be partially evacuated after calls were received warning they could be the target of attacks. Only the journalists stayed behind. A member of the elPeriódico said that 300 demonstrators gathered outside the newspaper. Ríos Montt’s supporters want him to be able to stand in the 9 November presidential elections and appear to hold the press responsible for a decision by the supreme court on 20 July that has temporarily suspended his candidacy. Bussed into the centre of the city at the start of the day, they blocked access for several hours to various public institutions and a private office block with several hundred persons inside. Ríos Montt, who is currently the congressional president, has denied that the FRG was behind the protest.The supreme court’s decision was taken in response to an appeal by two opposition parties against the constitutional court’s decision to approve Ríos Montt’s candidacy. The opposition maintains that since Ríos Montt took power briefly in a 1982 military coup, his candidacy violates a provision of the 1985 constitution barring anyone who overthrew a constitutional government from being president. The armed forces committed extensive human rights violations during the 18 months that Ríos Montt’s de facto government lasted.

Generations work well side by side• Your Analysis on ageism was greeted with interest by this reader (“Ageism: the same old story”, 25 July). The company I work for is small (18-strong), but last year could boast that its employees covered every decade from teens to 70s – this year our teenager turned 20, but we are looking for another trainee at present.We value the expertise to be gained by the older employees and consultants in our organisation. In such a small and busy organisation we all have to work together as a team. We have two people in their 70s who have a great deal of experience and professionalism to pass on to our younger members of staff. We also have two employees in their 60s and three in their 50s. Out of these, two are relatively new employees. We have found that clients and suppliers alike have a great deal of respect for our “elder statesmen” and value experience every bit as much as an honours degree.I would imagine it is quite unusual to have such a wide age span in such a small company. However, this has nothing whatsoever to do with any government code of practice, which I have not even seen. If an applicant for the job fits in and has the qualifications and experience required, then there is surely no need for age to enter the equation.Personally, although not evident at this company, I am aware of some bias towards applicants who may have a young family and there still seems to be a myth existing in some quarters that anyone over 40 cannot fit into a “young” office environment. Those who are guilty of this type of discrimination should test the water a little. From my experience I think they might be pleasantly surprised at the results.Annette Smith PA to the MDPeerless EuropeHalsteadEssexTime-saving can miss experience • I work for a very good company and ageism is not an issue here. Alas, this is not always the case, and my husband has suffered unemployment many times because of it.Today, it is very difficult to select a suitable candidate from hundreds of applicants. It can be very time-consuming, and one of the easiest ways for some companies is to preclude all applicants above a certain age, even if this was not stated in the job criteria.Younger people with excellent qualifications, even degree level students, applying for every job make it easier to select these and discount an older applicant who might have fewer paper qualifications but 30 years experience of doing the job.Since reaching the age of 50 (now 53) and having been out of work for over a year, yet again, my husband has had to seek employment abroad, in Saudi Arabia. He says there is a different working culture abroad. Most senior managers are in their 50s or older and the degree-level students of 30 and younger are employed in a lower capacity to train for senior positions over a period of some years.While in England, he applied for 20 to 30 jobs per week for over a year on the three occasions he was without a job and rarely received even an acknowledgement.Hopefully, the situation will change and companies will appreciate the advantages of age and experience and someone who wants to settle into a job, rather than have the younger graduate highfliers who will move on after a couple of years – to gain experience.Phyllis KellyPerstorp Surface Materials (UK)Back-up for when persuasion fails • I believe there should be legislation to help prevent ageism. We know from other equality legislation that it will not solve all the problems, but it helps to have the back-up of employment law when all the persuasive arguments fail.Janvier HydeHuman resources manager Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough CouncilOlder staff can be more reliable• Both myself and my personnel officer Sue Norton think that ageism should be legislated against. In common with many educational establishments, we honestly recruit people of all ages for all types of post, and usually find that the older staff tend to be more reliable.Len MorphewHead of administrationRoyal Agricultural CollegeCirencesterAcas can’t block ‘timewasters’• A correspondent to your letters page (25 July) asserted that one of Acas’s functions is to prevent frivolous cases reaching tribunal. This is not so.Acas is very successful and saves taxpayers a great deal of money by helping to reduce considerably the number of cases that proceed to tribunal hearings. Last financial year nearly 60,000 actual and potential complaints to employment tribunals were settled beforehand and another 40,000 were withdrawn. Acas, however, does not have – nor would we wish it to have – a formal role in preventing so-called “frivolous” cases from proceeding to tribunal. Such a role would require Acas conciliators to act on behalf of the Employment Tribunal Service to determine the merits of cases and would be incompatible with the independent, impartial conciliation they offer to help both applicants and respondents make informed decisions on how best to proceed.Derek EvansChief conciliatorAdvisory, Conciliation and Arbitration ServiceRemember what the law is about• Somewhere along the line, your correspondents on tribunal timewasting seem to have forgotten why we have employment law at all. Fifty years ago, a contract of employment was like any other contract, and its breach or enforcement was a matter for the County Court. But successive governments recognised that the power of the parties to it was so unequal – the employer with all its strength and resources versus the individual employee on their own – that employment law was needed to protect the employee’s interests.From the sound of what most of your correspondents are saying, the need for that protection remains as strong as ever. Sacking people may be all in a day’s work for them, but is a serious matter for the people they are sacking. An employer’s decision to dismiss should be capable of standing up to the strongest scrutiny, and the employer should be willing to defend it if called upon to do so.Nigel TurnerHuman resources directorRoyal Free Hampstead NHS TrustResearch shows firms do value IIP• I would like to respond to the short news piece referring to research by the IRS which claimed that most employers felt that achieving the Investors in People standard has had no impact on their bottom line (News, 25 July).This research analysed the responses of just 62 organisations that have the standard, when we know that there at least 40,478 organisations currently involved with it. This means that the IRS survey polled less than 0.1 per cent of organisations working with Investors in People. Independent research conducted in October last year, with a far larger sample of 2,000 organisations, found that 70 per cent had increased their competitiveness and productivity, whilst 80 per cent increased customer satisfaction. I would urge your readers not to be misled by the results of the small-scale IRS survey and to find out for themselves, by looking at more robust independent research findings which can be seen at our web site at www.iipuk.co.uk Ruth SpellmanChief executiveInvestors in People UK Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

The value of awards that The Property Ombudsman (TPO) told agents to pay disgruntled customers tripped over £1 million for the first time last year, its annual report reveals, along with details of one case that cost a letting agent over £20,000.Property Ombudsman Katrine Sporle (pictured, right) is to launch the report at an event later today at the House of Lords that will show total awards reaching £1.2 million in 2016 while the number of difficult cases increased by 7.5% to 3,553.Common complaintsLettings attracted the largest number of resolved cases at 1,997 with those complaining being fairly evening split between landlords and tenants.The average letting award was £531 but the highest was £21,972 (see case details below). The most common complaint was about property management.In sales, two thirds of complaints came from sellers and the remainder from buyers and the average award was £397, while the most common complaint was about communication and record keeping.“TPO works with the industry and consumers to get things right, put things right and set things right,” says Katrine.“This year, TPO’s Codes of Practice, approved by Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI), have been revised to clarify many of the issues consumers found confusing or misleading, including full disclosure on fees and charges, pre-contract deposits and referencing.“It is evident that the vast majority of consumers are happy with their agent. To help paint an overall picture, the 1,310 sales complaints resolved by TPO in 2016 equates to 0.1% of all sales transactions completed during the year.”£21,972 mistakeTPO’s report includes details of a case that led to an £21,972 award, highlighting how referencing admin mistakes can be very expensive.An unnamed agent was instructed to find a tenant by a landlord. It then requested a reference from a third-party provider, which ‘passed’ the tenant but said it had not ID checked them.The agent then told the landlord that the tenant has “passed referencing” even though no ID check had been completed. The real identity of the tenant then emerged, including how they owed their previous landlord £12,500.The tenant paid no rent on the second property in question and it cost the landlord over £20,000 to evict them, a bill which TPO then instructed the agent to reimburse the landlord for.

It has a unique design in that it hovers in mid air while seducing the incoming anti-ship missile.The joint Australian/United States development program began from an original concept developed in Australia by the Defence Science and Technology Organisation in the early 1970s and the belief that variable-thrust, solid-propellant rocket-motor technology could be used with guidance commands to enable the decoy to hover in controlled flight.Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said it represented a significant achievement by a program which had also generated defence exports.“Nulka is a state-of-the art autonomous hovering rocket decoy that uses sophisticated electronic signals to ‘seduce’ anti-ship missiles away from their targets,” Pyne said.Full production under the current contract began in 1999. Final assembly of the decoys was completed at Defence’s Mulwala munitions factory in regional New South Wales. The word ‘Nulka’ is of Aboriginal origin and means ‘be quick’.

When it comes to shopping, I prefer to support the independent trader where possible.When I was a kid, you really had a choice of bakers. You were greeted with your name or asked what mum or nan had sent you there for – there was a real sense of community.But with the increase of supermarkets and chain stores, the marketing gurus trick us, the consumer, into thinking we have a choice!A glance in any supermarket will quickly reveal that one brand of tea bags is made by the same company as another leading brand or baked beans, soap powder, and so on.So I like to go into my local bakery and buy convenient goods – for example on my lunch break. I tend to go for prawn or smoked salmon in brown bread or a white roll with cheese pickle, tomato or onion.My first choice of hot savoury has got to be a Cornish pasty, but sometimes I go for sausage rolls; it is just based on how they look or what mood I’m in.I tend to buy fresh crusty rolls when we have soup or stew and supermarket, wrapped, sliced bread for toast or sandwiches.When it comes to cakes, the Danish pastry is probably my favourite of all, but I’ve not had good one in years. It seems as if they are mostly made in a factory type environment and lack freshness. I also like muffins – especially blueberry muffins – custard tarts and Bakewell tarts, and it would be great if bakers sold apple pie with custard or ice cream.Wayne Wheeler, Crawley, West Sussex
Show Closed This production ended its run on Oct. 9, 2016 View Comments New York City Ballet dancer Robert Fairchild, Leanne Cope and more will star in the Broadway-bound production of An American in Paris, which will receive its world premiere at Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. As previously reported, the tuner, inspired by the classic Oscar-winning film of the same name, will be directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, feature music by George and Ira Gershwin and a book by Craig Lucas. The production will begin Paris performances in December before coming to Broadway in the spring of 2015.In addition to Fairchild and Cope, who will play Jerry Mulligan and Lise Dassin, respectively, the cast will include Veanne Cox as Madame Baurel, Jill Paice as Milo Davenport, Brandon Uranowitz as Adam Hochberg and Max Von Essen as Henri Baurel. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.Fairchild is currently a member of the New York City Ballet, and has appeared as a soloist since 2007 and a Principal Dancer since 2009. Cope has created several roles for the Royal Ballet School company, where she was promoted to First Artist in 2009. Cox’s Broadway credits include A Free Man of Color, La Cage aux Folles and Caroline, or Change. She was last seen off-Broadway in The Old Friends. Paice is currently starring in Matilda on Broadway as Miss Honey. Her additional Broadway credits include The 39 Steps, Curtains and The Woman in White. Uranowitz, who recently starred in Torch Song Trilogy off-Broadway, made his Broadway debut in Baby, It’s You!. Von Essen recently appeared in the revival of Evita, and has also starred on Broadway in Les Miserables, Dance of the Vampires and Jesus Christ Superstar.Eager to begin his life anew after the brutality of combat, World War II Army veteran Jerry Mulligan (Fairchild, played in the movie by Gene Kelly) chooses newly liberated Paris as the place to make a name for himself as a painter. With the assistance of fellow ex-pat Milo Davenport (Paice), a wealthy American with a past she wishes to forget, Jerry’s life becomes complicated when he meets Lise (Cope), a young Parisian shop girl with her own secret. Soon it becomes clear that Jerry’s friends—Adam, a Jewish American composer (Uranowitz), and Henri, a Parisian aristocrat (Von Essen)—also vie for Lise’s love. This romantic tangle can only be untied through the miracle of dance set to some of the greatest music and lyrics ever written. Star Files Related Shows Max von Essen Jill Paice An American in Paris
