Zuma’s challenge to the United Nations

first_img25 September 2013South African President Jacob Zuma threw down a stark challenge to world leaders in New York on Tuesday, saying that global development and security were “two sides of the same coin” as he called for action to reform the United Nations Security Council.Addressing the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly, Zuma said that, nearly 70 years after its establishment, the UN Security Council “still remains undemocratic, unrepresentative and unfair to developing nations and small states, and disenfranchises the majority of the member states of the United Nations, who form the majority in this General Assembly”.There had been too much talk about reforming the council – a key UN organ charged with the maintenance of international peace and security – with no action, Zuma said.Africa, along with the rest of the developing world, could not “remain beholden indefinitely to the will of an unrepresentative minority on most important issues of international peace and security.“We would like to challenge the Assembly today: let us set ourselves the target to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the United Nations in 2015 with a reformed, more inclusive, democratic and representative UN Security Council.”At the same time, Zuma criticised developed countries for their tendency, following the global economic meltdown prompted by the financial crisis of 2008-09, to “renegotiate the rules of the game”.He singled out the tendency of developed countries to introduce new issues as prerequisites for partnerships with developing countries – particularly the issue of clean technology and the green economy – which served in fact as “huge non-tariff barriers”.Developing the green economy was of course important, Zuma said, but had to be encouraged and promoted in a way that did not unfairly restrain economic development in Africa and the developing world. The international playing field had to be equalised, which meant that any post-2015 development agenda “must be based on the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities”.Zuma also called on developed countries not to abdicate their historical responsibility, and commitments made, to invest in the development of Africa and the developing South, saying that this was “of primary importance as a source of much-needed sustainable development and stability in the world”.The developed North “should stand ready to meet their commitment to contribute 0.7% of their gross national income towards official development assistance,” Zuma said.“The tendency to attempt to delegate some of these historical responsibilities to new emerging economies in the South is unacceptable and unworkable, as such emerging nations have their own historical challenges and backlogs to deal with.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

A media guide to the Oscar Pistorius trial

first_imgRecent media reports on the Oscar Pistorius murder trial. Clockwise from top left: The New York Times, News24, The Guardian, The Mail & Guardian, City Press, and Sky News.Shamin ChibbaParalympian athlete Oscar Pistorius’ murder trial, set to start on Monday 3 March, is a landmark case for the media. A groundbreaking court ruling makes it the first time in South African history a criminal trial will be broadcast live on TV, instantly streamed via audio apps, and live-tweeted to the world.Jump to:South African justice system ‘moving with the times’Oscar Pistorius Twitter feed and websiteConditions imposed on the mediaMain players in the trialTelevision coverageAudio coverage: radio and streaming appsLinks to streaming audio appsFollowing the trial on TwitterOn Tuesday 25 February Gauteng judge president Dunstan Mlambo ruled in favour of an application by Multichoice and Eyewitness News to broadcast the trial. It will be shown on two news channels on satellite TV service DStv, as well as on eNews Channel Africa (eNCA) and a special channel under the banner of MNet’s investigative programme Carte Blanche. But the judge ruled that only certain parts of the trial – the opening and closing arguments, expert witness testimony, judgment and sentencing – may be broadcast on TV. Radio broadcaster Eyewitness News, eNCA and Multichoice will, however, be allowed full audio coverage of the trial.Under Mlambo’s ruling, Multichoice must provide a free feed to other television channels. According the Associated Press, the broadcasts may also be made available to international stations through a sharing agreement.Pistorius is facing charges of premeditated murder and the illegal possession of ammunition after shooting Reeva Steenkamp, his girlfriend, to death through the closed bathroom door in his house on 14 February 2013. He claimed to have mistaken her for an intruder. In December last year two additional charges were added to the trial, for separate incidents of illegally discharging a firearm through the sunroof of a car, and under a table at a restaurant.South African justice system ‘moving with the times’George Mazarakis, executive editor for the Carte Blanche channel, said in an interview with AFP that judge Mlambo’s ruling set a precedent and was a victory for open justice. “We are thrilled that the South African judiciary has matured to this ground-breaking decision. It is a seminal moment and will make South African television and legal history as visual access of this nature has never before been granted in a South African court.”Eyewitness News editor-in-chief Katy Katopodis said in her web column that the ruling was a sign the justice system was moving with the times. She said the live broadcast of the trial will simply be an extension of the live tweeting reporters do when covering court cases. The broadcast, she said, would be no different from the principle of open justice, under which any person was allowed to walk into a courtroom and listen to a case.Normal witnesses can refuse consent to have their testimony broadcast, Katopodis said. “We can, however, have the testimony of witnesses who are expert witnesses, whose job essentially it is to give testimony in court cases like this.”In the hearing, Pistorius’ lawyers argued that television cameras in the courtroom would prevent him from having a fair trial. They said the broadcast of witness evidence may allow tailoring, fabrication and adaption of evidence.But Mlambo said the trial is in the public interest and having cameras in the courtroom would ensure a greater number of people, especially those unable to attend the proceedings, would be able to follow it wherever they may be. “Particularly those who are poor and who have found it difficult to access the justice system, they should have a first-hand account of the proceedings involving a local and international icon.”Oscar Pistorius Twitter feed and websiteMeanwhile, Pistorius’ public relations team has launched a Twitter account – @OscarHardTruth – which it claims will reveal the truth about the shooting.Pistorius’ family has also made the decision to turn his official website, once used to chronicle his exploits on the track and his charitable activities, into a news website featuring the latest developments in his trial, and a space for messages of support.The website states that it will provide the opportunity for the media to make enquiries or requests, but the family may not always respond or comment because of legal reasons.Conditions imposed on the mediaJudge Mlambo’s ruling has been hailed as a victory for media freedom, but he did impose a number of conditions to ensure broadcasters would not interfere with proceedings. These include:The presiding judge, Thokozile Masipa, will specifically direct when recording should start and when it should stop.No recordings of personal legal discussions and private conversations are allowed.No recordings when the court is not in session.Three small, unmanned spy cameras must be fitted to the courtroom at least 72 hours before the trial starts. The cameras must be installed in such a way that they do not interfere with proceedings. No camera operators will be allowed in the courtroom to control equipment, to prevent disruptions.Close-ups are not permitted.Mlambo allowed the opening argument for state and defence, expert evidence, and the testimony of police and all consenting state witnesses to be broadcasted.Print media will be allowed to take still photographs of the trial. Two cameras are allowed, but flash photography is not permitted.No cabling is allowed on the floor of the courtroom.Where concerns are raised about video coverage, final authority rests with the presiding judge.Prosecution witnesses may elect to have their testimony withheld from video cameras.Main players in the trialCome Monday, all cameras will be focused on Pistorius. But little is known about the other role-players in the trial, namely the presiding judge, Thokozile Masipa, prosecuting lawyer, Gerrie Nel, and Pistorius’s lawyer, Barry Roux.The judge: Thokozile MasipaSince becoming a high court judge in 1998, Thokozile Masipa has distinguished herself in three major trials. According to the Mail & Guardian, she threw out a R85-million unfair dismissal lawsuit against Eskom brought by former Eskom chief executive Jacob Moroga. She also presided over the City vs Occupiers case, in which she maintained that the City of Johannesburg had failed to fulfil its obligations to find alternative accommodation for squatters threatened with eviction from old warehouses in Berea. And in 2011, she had handed serial rapist and robber Shepherd Moyo a 252-year sentence after a two-year crime spree.A former crime reporter, Masipa was the second black woman to be appointed to the bench after Constitutional Court judge Yvonne Mokgoro.The prosecutor: Gerrie NelAdvocate Gerrie Nel is a state prosecutor for the National Prosecuting Authority. He previously headed the Gauteng division of the Directorate of Special Operations, also known as the Scorpions. In 2010, he successfully prosecuted Jackie Selebi, the former South African Police Services commissioner, who was found guilty of corruption and handed a 15-year prison sentence.The defence lawyer: Barry RouxSenior advocate Barry Roux has won out in a number of high-profile cases, including tax charges against mining magnate Roger Kebble, the father of politically connected murder victim Brett Kebble. At Pistorius’ bail hearing, Roux’s masterful cross-examination skills helped secure the athlete’s release on a R1-million bond. According to the Mail & Guardian, his sharp questioning may have changed the course of the case.The detective: Vineshkumar MoonooCase investigator lieutenant-general Vineshkumar Moonoo was appointed as the head of the Pistorius murder investigation after detective Hilton Botha resigned from the police in March 2013. Police commissioner Riah Phiyega has described him as the “top detective in the South African Police Service”. He has led a number of high-profile investigations, including the 250 robberies where suspects wore police uniforms and used blue-light vehicles, and the bombing of Czech businessperson Radovan Krejcir’s gold dealership in Bedfordview, Johannesburg.WitnessesThere are 107 witnesses listed for the trial from friends and neighbours to security guards at the Silverwoods Country Estate, where the shooting took place.Pistorius’ ex-girlfriend Samantha Taylor will testify for the prosecution. She has claimed to have witnessed the runner angrily fire a gun through the sunroof of his car after being stopped at a police roadblock. After they broke up, her mother, Trish Taylor, reportedly posted on Facebook that she was glad Samantha was “out of the clutches of that man”. The alleged comments were later removed. Trish will also take the stand at the trial.Christo Menelaou, Pistorius’s neighbour at Silverwoods, will also testify. In a Drum magazine article, he claimed to have woken up startled by what sounded like three thunderclaps at eight minutes past three in the morning. An hour later, when he went to the bathroom, he peered outside and saw blue and red lights flashing outside Pistorius’s house.Television coverageThe Carte Blanche channel will feature interviews with expert guests from around the world, including US criminal defence attorney Robert Shapiro, famous for his successful defence of murder accused OJ Simpson in 1995. Also on the panel will be senior legal experts, psychologists, social commentators, social media analysts, American forensic experts, and police consultants to hit crime-TV shows such as Dexter.Multichoice said the current editorial team for Carte Blanche will cover the trial for its special channel. They include journalists Derek Watts, John Webb, Bongani Bingwa and Devi Sankaree Govender. Also on the team will be social media lawyer Emma Sadleir, radio talk show host Leigh Bennie, legal journalist and radio talk show host David O’Sullivan, and former BBC presenter Subniv Babuta.According to eNCA group news editor Ben Said, the station will cover large parts of the trial in much the same way as Carte Blanche. Karyn Maughan and Annika Larsen will be the correspondents on site. The channel will consult a number of experts to analyse the trial but Said did not provide any names. “We have lined up both local and overseas justice criminal experts, forensic experts and legal experts.”Audio coverage: radio and streaming appsWhile TV coverage will be slightly limited, the full trial will be available on radio and streaming audio. Eyewitness News, part of the Primedia group that owns the stations Talk Radio 702, 567 CapeTalk, 94.7 Highveld Stereo and 94.5 Kfm, will provide the public with a continuous audio feed of the trial, accompanied by analysis.The feed will be available, for free, via streaming apps – both iOS and Android – provided by the four Primedia radio stations.An extra pop-up station positioned as “Gavel-to-gavel coverage of the Oscar Pistorius trial” will stream audio from the courtroom live each day from 09h00 to 16h00. This will be available on all four stations’ websites, free of charge. David O’Sullivan and Gushwell Brooks, who both have legal backgrounds, will present the show. Primedia said it would make copies of the daily audio streams available to international listeners across different time zones.Links to streaming audio apps94.5 Kfm: Apple • Android94.7 Highveld Stereo: Apple • Android567 CapeTalk: Apple • AndroidTalk Radio 702: Apple • AndroidFor further information and updates, visit Eyewitness News, Talk Radio 702, 567 CapeTalk, 94.7 Highveld Stereo and 94.5 Kfm.Following the trial on TwitterBarry BatemanEyewitness News Pretoria correspondent Barry Bateman will cover the trial for Primedia’s radio stations, and live-tweet it as it unfolds.

AFBF praises new Clean Water Rule

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The newly proposed Clean Water Rule would empower America’s farmers and ranchers to protect the nation’s water resources and provide much-needed regulatory clarity to guide those stewardship efforts, according to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall.Duvall recently spoke in Tennessee during an agricultural stakeholder meeting on the newly proposed Waters of the United States Rule. The event, hosted by the Tennessee Farm Bureau and kicked-off by Tennessee Farm Bureau President Jeff Aiken, included presentations by Acting Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, who provided farmers and ranchers additional details about the proposed rule.Duvall said farmers and ranchers are committed to protecting America’s waterways and drinking water, and the new Clean Water Rule will provide them the regulatory certainty they need to farm confidently with those natural resources in mind.“For more than five years we have advocated for a new water rule that protects clean water and provides clear rules for people and communities to follow,” Duvall said. “This proposal promises to do just that, by giving farmers and ranchers the clarity they need to farm their land while also ensuring the nation has clean water. Farmers should not have to hire an army of consultants and lawyers just to work their land.”During his comments, Aiken, a member of the AFBF Board, said it was an honor to host Wheeler and Perdue for the informational meeting about the new Clean Water Rule.“To echo Acting Administrator Wheeler, since we provide food for the table, we deserve a seat at the table,” Aiken said. “Farmers, homebuilders and businessmen from across Tennessee and surrounding states were excited at the announcement, which will provide clarity to farmers and allow them to continue to be good stewards of the land and environment.”More information about the newly proposed Clean Water Rule is posted at https://www.fb.org/cleanwaterrule.last_img read more

#InquirerSeven: Things to know about Jeff Horn

first_img2. He is an Olympian Pacquiao is usually given the de facto home court advantage, be it in Las Vegas or Dallas. This time, however, the Pacman will walk inside Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium facing a hometown hero.Horn was born in Brisbane on Feb. 4, 1988 and has resided in his birthplace ever since.Come Battle of Brisbane, it’s safe to say that there will be more than 50,000 people in support of their boxing son.ADVERTISEMENT Both fighters are family men, and both also have lovable dogs.Quite some time ago, Pacquiao’s pooch Pacman reached headlines when it dogged the Filipino icon during his runs. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Horn was called “gay” constantly during his growing up years.The verbal abuse held so much magnitude that the young Horn almost thought of suicide.“I got called ‘gay’ a lot. Words like that shouldn’t hurt me, but I was a kid. It cuts deep, especially when it’s every day. You don’t know how to stop it,” Horn told Sydney Morning Herald.“Day by day, it takes a bit of you. I know the lows you can feel. I’ve had those feelings, like suicidal thoughts. I can remember some days that I felt that because of the bullying.”6. Like Pacquiao, Horn also has a canine companion What ‘missteps’? Beneath his enigmatic identity is a man who battled demons en route to becoming a professor of the beautiful sport.Despite owning WBO and IBF’s secondary titles, Horn is still considered an unknown in comparison to the icons Pacquaio has faced.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSo to shine a little bit more of the spotlight on Horn, here are seven tidbits about the Aussie.1.

Horn’s vice is poker Growing up, Horn wasn’t the fighter Australians now adore.He was the one wearing the glasses and playing board games and with such silence, Horn became a target of bullying.According to a story from The Australian, Horn was the victim of a lopsided beating when 30 bullies ganged up on him after school.Horn stood up against a bully, and what he got was a physical beatdown that changed his life.This harrowing experience led Horn to take up boxing and he’s then used that bullying episode every time he steps inside the squared circle.5.
