Congolese authorities free Burundian radio technician

first_img Time is pressing, 20 years after Burkinabe journalist’s murder Reporters Without Borders rallies former hostages in Paris, following the kidnapping of journalist Olivier Dubois. October 3, 2016 – Updated on October 4, 2016 Congolese authorities free Burundian radio technician Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and its partner organisation, Journaliste en Danger (JED) are pleased to report that Egide Mwemero, a Burundian radio technician who was held for nearly a year in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is now with his family in the Rwandan capital of Kigali after the Congolese authorities quietly released him from Kinshasa’s Makala prison on 27 September.

Charged initially with spying and then with “inciting the military to commit illegal acts,” he was held for seven months in a military intelligence detention centre in Kinshasa before being transferred to Ndoloto military prison and finally to Kinshasa’s Makala prison. As there was no evidence against him to justify his being tried under the military penal code or by a military court, a civilian judge finally examined the case in July 2016 and concluded that there were no grounds for bringing him to trial. He nonetheless remained in detention for almost three more months because civilian prosecutors sent the case back the military judicial system, in complete violation of procedure. Fortunately, the military judges refused to take the case again, leaving the civilian judicial authorities with no option but to free him. Kahn-Sriber added: “We acknowledge the military tribunals’ belated honesty in refusing to take back the case after civilian judges found no evidence against Mwemero, and we urge the Congolese judicial system to refuse to be the tool of political considerations.” Mwemero has told RSF he is relieved to be reunited with his family and is now due to undergo a series of medical checks, having been mistreated while in detention. “I have a lot of courage and a lot of strength, contrary to what they thought when they arrested me,” he said. “I am not discouraged and I will not give up.” Many observers regarded the DRC’s persecution of an ordinary radio technician as a sign of the importance of the political factors at play in the case. His discreet release was designed to end what had become a nuisance for the Congolese authorities because of pressure from national and international civil society groups. The DRC is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index. Burundi is ranked 156th, having fallen 11 places in the space of a year. to go further June 7, 2021 Find out more Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria Organisation last_img read more

Hass: Syracuse fans should start to worry after 3rd loss in 4 games

first_imgCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Two weeks ago, Syracuse was undefeated.The Orange was letting teams hang around, but disposing of them in the final minutes.Everything was golden in Syracuse.But now, after surrendering 48 points to No. 12 Virginia (25-5, 16-1 Atlantic Coast) in the second half and losing 75-56 on Saturday night, No. 4 Syracuse (26-3, 13-3) has dropped three of its last four games.Syracuse is still fully capable of winning the ACC tournament. It’s still capable of getting a No. 1 seed in the Big Dance. And it’s still capable of cutting down the nets in April.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the Orange needs to play better if any of those three things are to happen. Much better.Without a healthy Jerami Grant, a consistently clicking offense or an effective 3-point defense, Syracuse is more vulnerable than it has been all season.“It’s definitely frustrating,” SU guard Michael Gbinije said. “From a player’s eyes, you kind of look at one game at a time. You just want to win every game.”Now NCAA Tournament games in Buffalo and Madison Square Garden are no longer inevitable.The shirts that prematurely read “All Cuse Conference” are erroneous. It was an “All Cavalier Conference” Saturday night, as one sign read amid a swarm of raucous Cavalier fans that stormed the court.“I thought for a couple of weeks that they’ve been by far the best team,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said of the Cavaliers after the game.In John Paul Jones Arena, Virginia was the better team, by far, as all of the Orange’s glaring weaknesses exposed in the past few weeks reached a new level.Virginia manhandled SU in the second half, hitting seven 3s en route to a 35-16 run to close the game. The score was once tied at 42, but that’s when Syracuse fell apart.Three after 3 soared through the net as the Orange was unable to match UVA’s firepower from downtown.“In two of our three losses, that’s been the difference in the game,” Boeheim said. “We just did not do a good job guarding the 3-point line. Period.”And while Justin Anderson — who led the Cavaliers with three triples — and Co. were canning 3s, Syracuse was rendered inept offensively.It was forced to play the entire second half without Grant for the second straight game. Syracuse survived without him against Maryland, but couldn’t do so against the Cavaliers.It’s unclear how long Grant will be sidelined, but if he misses time going forward, SU’s front line becomes that much thinner. Staying out of foul trouble becomes that much more critical for the oft-out-of-position Rakeem Christmas and Baye Moussa Keita.That means that Tyler Roberson may see some minutes, as he did against UVA.“When (Grant’s) out, guys are going to have to step up and fill that role,” guard Trevor Cooney said. “We’ll be fine.”We’ll be fine.It’s a phrase Syracuse players said when they were winning close games. They said it after the Boston College and Duke losses. And it was the theme of a generally somber locker room after the loss to Virginia.Though the players were somewhat dejected, they gave the same even-keeled answers they have all year.“Just a season of runs. Teams get hot, teams cool down,” Gbinije said. “This is definitely something that we can bounce back from.”It certainly is. It’s only one game. But at some point, Syracuse fans have to worry.This isn’t the team it was a few weeks ago. An aura of invincibility no longer follows the Orange everywhere it goes. As Boeheim mentioned, UVA was the first game all season SU wasn’t within striking distance in the final five minutes.“That’s going to happen some games,” Keita said. “You can’t play great offense every game. I think this was one of those games. We were in a slump a little bit.”But that slump has been painfully dragged out over a month-long stretch. We’ve witnessed a team go from untouchable to battered. From undefeated to knocked-off three times in just 10 days.And from the groom of the ACC to the clear-cut groomsman.There’s still time for Syracuse to go out on top in its first year in the ACC, but the Orange better turn things around quickly.The conference tournament’s less than two weeks away. If SU wants to earn a No. 1 seed, it’ll have to start playing like one.Trevor Hass is an asst. sports editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.
