The Tea House is nestled within a leafy backyard of a suburban home. Constructed of bronze and glass, the new structure references the form of a Japanese lantern and functions as a tea house, meditation space, and stage for the family’s musical recitals.

BangladeshAsia – Pacific March 19, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities turn up the heat on journalists News News to go further Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention Organisation Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders deplores the persecution of Ekushey Television (ETV) by the Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission and regrets the government body’s threats to shut down the commercial satellite station for allegedly broadcasting illegally.The organization condemns also the threats by local leaders of the ruling Awami League in the southern city of Pirojpur against 19 Pirojpur-based journalists on 13 March, and the suspension of broadcasting by three privately-owned TV stations the previous day to prevent live coverage of an opposition BNP rally in the capital.“If ETV is ordered off the air, it would be the second television station to be closed down under this government since 2009,” the press freedom organization said.“The BTRC cannot threaten ETV with closure while a verdict by the Supreme Court on similar allegations is still pending. The station must be granted the right to present the required documentation and be given reasonable time in which to do so. In the event that the dispute drags on, the station must be allowed to appeal through the courts and be spared financial strangulation.”“The authorities must loosen their grip on the media at once and cease to constantly harass and threaten journalists, especially when they support the opposition,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities know who were responsible for these threats. They must be held accountable for their statements.” ETV persecutedOn 11 March, ETV was given formal notice to explain the terms under which it was broadcasting, an action the BTRC termed illegal. The regulatory body said the station had no licence and had not been allocated the frequency it was using.The BTRC gave the station seven days to respond. Under the law, ETV could be fined 3 billion taka (about 27 million euros) and its executives could face prison sentences of up to 10 years.On 22 April 2007, the BTRC demanded a payment of more than 300 million taka (about 2.7 million euros) from the privately owned station for broadcasting illegally, on pain of losing its allocation of airtime. ETV asked for a ruling by the High Court which granted a stay of execution, putting the case on hold.The station’s CEO, Abdus Salam, indicated that he had documentation proving that it had paid all fees and costs up to 2012 and told a news conference on 15 March he was surprised to receive such an order, since the station had been broadcasting since 2007.Launched in April 2004, ETV was forced to stop broadcasting in August 2002 by the Supreme Court, which ruled that its licence was invalid. It resumed transmissions in December 2006.Threats from Awami LeagueFearing for their lives, 19 Pirojpur-based reporters went to the city’s main police station on 14 March to make statements and request police protection from local Awami League leaders and supporters who had threatened to kill them at the previous day’s rally because of recent critical coverage of two local Awami League parliamentarians, A.K.M.A. Awal (also known as Saidur Rahman) and Anwar Hossain.The Awami League leaders and members had warned the journalists that if they dared to criticize the two parliamentarians again, they would be expelled from the city or they would be “chopped into pieces and buried.”The threats were prompted by coverage of claims by Awami League representatives in small towns in the Pirojpur area accusing the two parliamentarians of corruption, high-handedness and favouritism. The reports were carried by several Dhaka-based national dailies and privately-owned TV channels.The 19 journalists who filed complaints are Mahmud Hossain of United News of Bangladesh (UNB), Muniruzzaman Nasim Ali of Dainik Ittefaq, S.M. Pervez of Dainik Jugantor, A.K. Azad of Dainik Sangbad, Fashiul Islam Bacchu of Dainik Samakal and Channel-i TV, Khaled Abu of Dainik Amadher Shomoy, Rezaul Islam Shamim of Dainik Amar Desh, Shirina Afroz of Dainik Kaler Kantho and Ekushey TV, Mizanur Rahman of Dainik Shakaler Khabar, Shafiqul Islam Milan of ATN Bangla TV, Rashid Al Munan Shujan of NTV and Dainik Destiny, Nahid Ahmed Reaz of RTV, Abdur Razzak Chowdhury of Diganta TV, Nure Alam Siddiqui of Independent TV, H.M. Jewel of Mohona TV, Ziaul Haque of Shomoy TV, Humayun Kabir of Islamic TV, Sohel Billal Kajal of Dainik Janata and Mashiur Rahman Rahat of the weekly Baleshwar.Censored broadcastsIn a separate development, the government ordered the Cable Operators’ Association of Bangladesh (COAB) to block transmission of three privately-owned TV stations – Ekushey Television (ETV), Bangla Vision and Islamic TV – on 12 March to prevent them from providing live coverage of a major rally by the opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) in Dhaka.The suspension lasted three and a half hours and was lifted at 6:30 p.m., an hour after BNP leader Khaleda Zia had finished addressing the rally. The Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission had urged the TV stations on 10 March not to broadcast the rally live.

News Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union October 14, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist is freed, flies to The Hague and pleads not guilty Journalist Josip Jovic was released on 13 October after a week in prison in Split and flew voluntarily to The Hague today where he pleaded not guilty of contempt of court before the International Criminal Court for ex-Yugoslavia. He was given permission to return to Croatia pending trial. ————————————————————-Journalist arrested at home on the order of the international criminal court for ex-Yugoslavia7 October 2005Reporters Without Borders called for the release on bail of journalist Josip Jovic, arrested at his Split home on the order of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) on a charge of contempt of court.The 6 October 2005 arrest of Jovic, editor of the daily Slobodna Dalmacija was televised and shown the same evening on Croatian TV since he was in process of giving an interview at his home. Jovic’s arrest followed the issue of a warrant by the ICTY signed by a judge at a court in Split. He was placed in custody in a local prison while awaiting extradition to The Hague, which could take several weeks since he plans to appeal to the Croatian constitutional court and the Supreme Court.“We condemn this sudden arrest of Jovic by the Croatian justice system based on a ICTY arrest warrant, which appears disproportionate to the crime he is accused of and sets a dangerous precedent,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Considering the mandate of the tribunal in The Hague, which is supposed to try the most serious of international crimes, it is surprising that one of its decisions led to the arrest of a journalist who, even if he did not respect the law, has not committed a crime of violence.”“The same goes for the four other Croatian journalists also accused of contempt of court. Considering that this journalist represents no danger for Croatia and the ICTY, he should be released on bail.”Jovic failed to appear before the judges in The Hague on 26 September, unlike his colleague Marijan Krizic, editor of the weekly Hrvatsko Slovo, who answered his summons and was allowed to leave the court again freely.The two journalists are accused of contempt of court, along with Ivica Marijacic, editor of Hrvatski List, Stjepan Seselj, editor of Hrvatsko Slovo, and Domagoj Margetic, editor of Novo Hrvatsko Slovo, for revealing the identity of a protected witnesses, the current Croatian President, Stipe Mesic, at the trial of Tihomir Blaskic in 1997. They face up to seven years in prison and a fine of 100,000 euros. The trial of Ivica Marijacic, Stjepan Seselj, and Domagoj Margetic, who revealed the identity of Mesic in their newspapers in November 2004, is to open at the end of October.This confidential information had already been posted on the Documentation and Information Centre Veritas (www.veritas.org.yu) in 1999, and carried by the Bosnian daily Bih Dani, on 1st June 2001.“I will act in solidarity with my colleague and I prefer to go to prison rather than plead guilty before the ICTY”, Domagoj Margetic told Reporters Without Borders.The ICTY chief prosecutor, Carla Del Ponte, said on 4 October that she was in favour of membership talks between Croatia and the EU, since Zagreb was fully cooperating with the ICTY. She had given an unfavourable opinion in March, complaining that the Croatian authorities were dragging their feet in arresting fugitive general, Ante Govina, charged by judges in The Hague in 2001.

Otting recently testified during a hearing held by the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs.The Comptroller’s testimony discussed the agency’s efforts to support the safe, sound, and fair operation of the federal banking system and promote its ability to meet the needs of its customers during the national public health emergency created by COVID-19.The Comptroller’s testimony also provided details about the range of activities currently underway, including our efforts to strengthen the Community Reinvestment Act regulations, make Bank Secrecy Act compliance more effective and efficient, and encourage banks to provide more responsible small-dollar lending.In his statement, Otting discussed the actions the OCC has taken in response to COVID-19 to provide banks greater flexibility to meet the needs of the households and businesses that depend on them.”The extent of COVID-19’s impact on individuals and families, banks, and our economy depends on the depth and duration of this downturn and how quickly demand returns to the economy,” said Otting. “Our monitoring efforts will continue so that we have current data to use as we respond to industry challenges as the situation evolves.”lake Paulson, the new Chief National Bank examiner with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and senior deputy comptroller for midsize and community bank supervision, recently spoke with Law360 on the OCC’s plan beyond the coronavirus, detailing the steps the agency and banks can take to prepare for the next financial downturn.According to Paulson, one of the most significant priorities of the OCC has been strengthening the Community Reinvestment Act regulation.“We’ve done a tremendous amount of work to first put out an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking to request, which was a series of questions on the CRA and then a proposed rule. Now we’ve gotten all those comments back, and we’re working on drafting the final rule.

Teen charged with hate crime for posting ‘Slave for sale’ ad on Craigslist with photo of African-American classmate
iStock(NAPERVILLE, Ill.) — An Illinois teen has been arrested for a hate crime for allegedly placing a racist ad on Craigslist that included a photo of an African American classmate.The teen, who is a student at Naperville High School, appeared in court on Wednesday morning on two counts of felony hate crime and one count of disorderly conduct, police said in a news release.Authorities allege that the student took a photograph of a classmate while at school on Nov. 14 and then posted an ad on Craigslist with the photograph and caption “Slave for sale (Naperville),” police said.The ad also included an offensive racial slur, officials said.Police began investigating on Nov. 18 when they became aware of the incident and later identified the juvenile suspect as the person who allegedly posted the ad.Naperville Chief of Police Robert Marshall described the ad as a “despicable and extremely offensive post.”“Every single person deserves the right to feel safe and welcome in our community, and this department will continue to strive to make that a reality by thoroughly investigating any allegations of hate crimes and bringing those found responsible to justice,” Marshall said. “I would like to express my appreciation to our school resource officer and supervisor who conducted a timely, thorough, detailed investigation.”The DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin called the case “beyond disturbing.”“Hate crimes have no place in our society and will not be tolerated in DuPage County. Anyone, regardless of age, accused of such disgraceful actions will be charged accordingly. I would like to thank the Naperville Police Department for their work on this case. I would also like to thank Assistant State’s Attorney Lee Roupas for his efforts on this case,” Berlin said.The teen, whose name and age were not released, is due back in court on Dec. 18.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The government has specifically omitted estate agents from a list of high street premises to be included within its widened range of business rates relief measures announced late yesterday in response to the Coronavirus threat.Hundreds of thousands of high street premises will be given extra help to pay their rates with an expanded retail discount of up to 100%.This will be made possible through central government funding of the extra reliefs which are to be agreed locally by councils for their high street businesses, rather than via changes to business rates legislation.But estate agents hoping the government might understand the pressures their businesses are under will be disappointed.Almost every type of high street premises is included within the scheme from bakers to supermarket and even second hand car lots, caravan showrooms, tanning shops and, somewhat perversely, holiday homes.ExcludedBut the details of the guidance reveal that the government is specifically excluding estate agents from the rates relief programme, including lettings agents.The property industry is lumped in with banks, building societies, medical services such as vets and dentists, solicitors, accountants, post offices and casinos.The omission comes despite a plea on Tuesday during Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s economic update to parliament.During the lively debate, Conservative MP for Witney, Robert Courts, said: “Will the Chancellor please… look at A2 properties, which do not currently receive business rates relief, and see whether some of those businesses—such as estate agents on the high streets – can be helped?”.Read more about the business rates programme.Read the business rates relief document in full.coronavirus Rishi Sunak business rates March 19, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
