Juárez-based daily targeted again, call for probe into army abuses

first_img RSF_en Reporters Without Borders calls on the federal justice and defence ministries to investigate a 4 June incident in the northern city of Ciudad Juárez in which soldiers beat several journalists including photographer José Luis González of El Diario, a regional newspaper that suffered a great deal in 2008. In a separate development, one of El Diario’s bureaux has just had to close because of threats believed to have come from a drug cartel.“The need to combat drug trafficking does not justify army mistreatment of media personnel,” Reporters Without Borders said. “An El Diario journalist had to go into exile because of the methods used by certain soldiers deployed in Chihuahua state to combat the drug cartels. In appointing an investigation into the attack on González and his colleagues, the federal justice and defence ministries must demonstrate that journalists, who are already threatened by the cartels, have nothing to fear from the security forces.”González, two TV cameramen and a photographer with the PM daily newspaper were assaulted by solders as they were filming and photographing the scene of a road accident in which four soldiers and a police patrol officer were injured. González was struck in the back, thrown to the ground, and beaten repeatedly with a rifle butt while one of the soldiers held him down with his boot.The incident came just a week after work was suspended at the El Diario bureau in Parral as a result of death threats against the staff. Journalists told Reporters Without Borders that the threats were prompted by an article about the detention of seven presumed members of the Sinaloa cartel. It named Román Valenzuela, one of the lieutenants of cartel chief Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, who is currently on the run.At the height of last year’s violence between the cartels, which left 1,600 dead in Chihuahua state alone, El Diario journalist Armando Rodríguez Carreón was murdered on 13 November, after seeking refuge in the United States. His murder remains unpunished. Other journalists went into exile at around this time.

State has also been directed to ensure that no nurses, paramedical staff or ASHA workers are deprived of their salaries. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice B V Nagarathna said “It must be clarified whether the State has any policy to provide armed police constables for protection of all the health workers. The State will also have to place on record what steps it proposes to take to prevent such incidents. The reason is that the safety of the doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, ASHA workers, etc. is of paramount importance in the battle against Covid-19. The State must come out with the policy which applies across the State for protecting this class of citizens who are on the forefront in the battle against Covid-19.” The direction was given during the hearing of the petition filed by Dr Rajeev Ramesh Gothe which highlights the need for safety of health workers. The court was informed about the incident which occurred in the night on April 19, at Padarayanapura in Bengaluru. It is reported that the persons who were sought to be quarantined attacked the health workers, including the doctors as well as the Police. To which the bench directed the state government to place on record the action taken against the wrong doers. Also, place on record a policy decision taken regarding providing adequate protection to the doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, ASHA workers, etc.” As regards to grievances made about non-availability of mask and PPE kits, to grass root level health workers by the counsel appearing for Karnataka State Legal Services Authority (KSLSA). The bench said “The State Government has to respond on the question whether the PPE Kits can be made available at a cost to private hospitals and to private clinics. Whether PPE kits have reached the doctors and the nursing staff across the state and whether equipment like masks and hand-gloves are made available across the state to health care facilities, such as Primary Health Centers (PHCs) and other facilities at grass-roots level.” The response has to be filed on the next date of hearing April 28. Advocate S Basvaraj who has filed an intervention application pointed out that on Government E-Marketplace (GEM) Portal provided by the Central Government, private doctors and private health workers cannot register themselves for procurement of PPE kits and other equipment. To which the Additional Solicitor General, appearing for Union Government said that the Central Government has recently distributed 2,83,910 PPE Kits and about 20 lakhs N-95 Masks to various States. However, he sought time to seek instruction on whether private health workers and doctors can register on the portal. The bench agreed to the request and directed the Union and State government to respond whether the ‘GEM Portal’ can be thrown open to private health care workers to buy PPE Kits and other equipment.Click Here To Download Order     [Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
