Reporters Without Borders expresses anger and concern after murder of journalist

Station staff immediately overpowered the gunman. Guadamuz was a prominent figure in the Nicaraguan media. Gruesome death threats against Nicaraguan exile journalist Organisation Nearly half of UN member countries have obstructed coronavirus coverage Reporters Without Borders expressed its anger and concern after the murder of prominent and outspoken television journalist Carlos Guadamuz.Guadamuz, producer and presenter of the broadcast “Dardos al Centro”, put out by CDNN (also known as Channel 23), was shot dead in front of the channel’s studios as he arrived for work on 10 February.The killer shot him several times at point blank range with a 38 revolver. Station staff immediately overpowered the gunman and he was identified as William Hurtado García. Eyewitnesses said he had been lying in wait for his victim for almost an hour.”Reporters Without Borders welcomes the fact that the killer was arrested and your commitment to track down all those who were implicated in this cowardly act,” the international press freedom organisation said, in a letter to President Enrique Bolaños Insisting on being kept informed of the progress of the investigation, Reporters Without Borders added, “since several people believe the killing was linked to the journalist’s public stances, we call on you to do everything possible to uncover the motives for the murder.””If it turns out to be the case that Guadamuz was killed for his opinions or his work, that would be very bad news for democracy in Nicaragua, where no journalist has been killed for several years,” it added.Guadamuz, a leading journalist, was head of public radio La Voz de Nicaragua at the time of the Sandinista revolution (1979-1990) then of Radio Ya, the radio of the Sandanista National Liberation Front (FSLN), until 2000 when he was expelled after deciding to stand for a seat on Managua’s municipal council. He then became closer to the right-wing Constitutional Liberal Party (PLC) and got a job working for the public Canal 6 until it closed in 2002. For the past several months he rented a slot on CDNN for his daily broadcast, which was known to be very hard-hitting and fiercely critical of the FSLN. The victim’s oldest son accused the party’s leader Daniel Ortega, of being the “chief suspect” in the death of his father. “He is my father’s biggest enemy,” he told the local press. In a statement the FSLN condemned the murder which it also described as a set up. “This murder was carried out to make it look like the FSLN was behind it. There is no doubt about that,” said Tomás Borge, deputy general secretary of the party. Follow the news on Nicaragualast_img read more

However, the Court added that for non-scheduled operations after that, Air India should follow the Bombay High Court’s direction to keep middle seats vacant.A bench headed by CJI Bobde passed the order in the petitions filed by Ministry of Civil Aviation and Air India against the May 22 order of the Bombay HC which directed Air India to keep middle seats empty even in respect of its non-scheduled international operations.After hearing Solicitor General Tushar Mehta for both the Centre and the national carrier, the bench ordered :”We are of the considered view that the petitioner – Air India should be allowed to operate the non-scheduled flights with the middle seats booking upto 6th June, 2020. However, after that the Air India will operate non-scheduled flights in accordance with the interim order to be passed by the Bombay High Court”.The Court remanded the matter to the High Court with a with a request to pass an effective interim order after hearing all concerned on the date fixed i.e. 2nd June, 2020.The SC convened the special sitting on Monday despite it being a holiday on account of Eid, after both the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Air India had rushed to the apex court on Sunday night against the Bombay HC direction.The  bench, also comprising Justices A S Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy,  said that it was passing the order taking note of the extra ordinary situation that Air India has already issued tickets for Indians stranded abroad.It observed :”We would normally not be inclined to interfere in an interim order passed by the HC. Learned Solicitor General has pointed out immense difficulty that has arisen as passengers who are stranded on foreign soil at airports were issues a valid ticket for travel.According to Solicitor General Mehta, this has resulted in lot of anxiety and difficulties. Plans of families traveling together have been disrupted, among other things. Those from family who had centre seats have to be offloaded and be left behind.”The Bombay HC held that the circular issued by the Director General of Civil Aviation on March 23 to keep middle seats empty in flights to enforce physical distancing as a precautionary measure against COVID-19 was applicable to international flights.DGCA Direction To Keep Middles Seats Empty Applicable To Air India’s International Flights : Bombay HC The Centre and the Air India contended that the March 23 circular was applicable only to scheduled commercial flights, and not to special international operations undertaken to repatriate Indians stranded abroad. It was also contended that the March 23 circular was superceded by a subsequent circular issued on May 22, which has no direction to keep middle seats empty. The Bombay HC however held that the May 22 circular was only applicable to domestic flights.”Prima facie, we are in agreement with the submission made by the learned Counsel for the Petitioner that those passengers who are being lifted mainly from U.S.A and U.K. may be Covid-19 infected passengers. In our prima facie view, Air India has violated Circular dated 23rd March, 2020 by not keeping one seat between two seats empty while allocation of the seat at the time of check-in”, a HC bench comprising Justices R D Dhanuka and Abhay Ahuja held.The HC passed the direction in a petition filed by one Deven Y. Kanani, an Air India pilot, who alleged that the national carrier violated the COVID-19 guidelines by allowing the booking of middle seats.Rejecting the contention of the Air India’s counsel, Dr. Abhinav Chandrachud, that the circular was inapplicable to non-scheduled international operations, the HC observed :”Prima facie, we are unable to accept the submission of the learned Counsel for the Air India that social distancing measures which are provided by the said Circular so as to prevent spread of Covid-19 would apply only to Scheduled Flight and not to non-scheduled commercial flights or only to domestic operation and not to International. If these arguments are accepted, the whole purpose of preventing spread of Covid-19 by prescribed measures would be defeated. Prima facie, it appears that the object behind the Circular dated 23rd March 2020 issued by the Government of India is for the safety of the passengers and for protection of their health in this emergency situation created by the Covid-19 Pandemic. In these circumstances, the Circular can not be interpreted to apply differently to the passengers who are travelling from abroad and the domestic passengers. Paramount consideration is the health and safety of these passengers and to achieve the object that they are not infected by Corona virus when they undertake any such travel”.Therefore, the HC directed Air India to comply with the March 23 circular while lifting their passengers from abroad to India also in respect of non-scheduled commercial flights.Though the Air India’s counsel later pointed out to the Court that the March 23 circular was superceded by a circular issued on May 22, the bench noted that it was applicable only to domestic flights.”We therefore, make it clear that the earlier directions issued by this Court in para 11, would remain with a rider that the Circular dated 23.3.2020, shall be read with Circular dated 22.5.2020 to the extent that the Circular dated 23.3.2020 stands superceded in so far as domestic flights are concerned”, the HC clarified later. Click here to download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
