Prior censorship makes a comeback

first_imgNews Follow the news on Sudan April 10, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information April 6, 2020 Find out more June 7, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prior censorship makes a comeback News Sudan : Press freedom still in transition a year after Omar al-Bashir’s removal Coronavirus infects press freedom in Africa Receive email alerts The editor of the Sudanese daily Ajras al-Huriya yesterday decided to suspend publication of the newspaper for one week in protest against the imposition of official censorship.The previous evening Sudanese security forces raided the premises of Ajras al-Huriya and those of several other papers, including Arabic-language opposition daily, al-Midan, and seized a number of copies.“We condemn the seizure of these publications by the Sudanese authorities”, Reporters Without Borders said. “The seizures on 5 June confirm a return to prior censorship of the Sudanese written press, following the first signs of renewal of the practice in mid-May.”“It amounts to an extremely serious setback for press freedom in this country. We offer our full support to these newspapers which are going through a difficult period. We hope that they will be able to express themselves freely when they resume publication.” Ajras al-Huriya had on 6 June been prevented from appearing for the third consecutive day. Other newspapers have received telephone calls telling them they did not have the right to cover some sensitive issues, such as the International Criminal Court or the doctors’ strike, under threat of being censored. ——————————————————————————————–2010.20.05 – Return to prior censorship of print media fearedReporters Without Borders is concerned that prior censorship could be restored in Sudan after security forces raided several newspapers yesterday in Khartoum, demanded to see the articles in preparation and prevented two newspapers from publishing several reports and editorials.The raids came just three days after the authorities closed down the opposition daily Rai al-Shaab and arrested four of its journalists. See the previous release .“After 20 months of prior censorship by the intelligence services, President Omar Al Bashir decreed an end to this practice in September 2009,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Last night’s developments seem to call this into question. We fear the government could be in the process of restoring censorship, which would be a historic reversal for press freedom and would signify a return to the darkest days of state surveillance of the print media.”After swooping on several newspapers last night, the security forces ordered the withdrawal and confiscation of several pages from Ajras al-Hurriya, a newspaper that supports Southern Sudan’s former rebels, and the independent newspaper Al-Sahafa. Fayez al-Silaik, the editor of Ajras al-Hurriya, said more than half of the pages of today’s issue were censored, making publication impossible.Reporters Without Borders also condemns threats by the local authorities against two independent radio stations in Southern Sudan, Miraya FM and Bakhita. Information and broadcasting minister Paul Mayom Akech accused Miraya FM of “exceeding its mandate” by broadcasting reports that were divisive and incited ethnic violence. He gave the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS), which operates the station, a week to “put the editorial body in order,” failing which the station would be closed. Radio Bakhita also risks losing its licence if it does not modify its programme content. The government of Southern Sudan is accusing it of devoting too much time to covering political developments instead of broadcasting religious programmes.Picture : Sudanese newspapers (AFP / Ashraz Shazly) center_img RSF_en to go further News Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent SudanAfrica News Organisation SudanAfrica March 29, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Tyus Battle’s 6-point showing just a blip in 65-56 win at Pittsburgh

first_img Published on February 2, 2019 at 9:46 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Facebook Twitter Google+ Rarely, if ever, has an unsettling notion sprouted in Battle’s mind. He knows his capabilities — that he can drive by anybody and only help defense can stop him — and how quickly he can get hot, changing the tenor of the SU offense with blow-bys and step-back jumpers. He doesn’t need to quell any worries because he said he doesn’t have them. Not during games.Syracuse won its ninth game out of its last 11 and sits at 7-2 in conference play, the program’s best start to ACC play in five years. Battle still leads the team in scoring, with 17.5 points per game. He wasn’t near that total on Saturday, and players said his fluctuation in scoring — 10, 10, 31 and six points, respectively, over his past four games — is just a fluke.“So much of what he does nobody really sees,” said senior point guard Frank Howard, who had 15 points and four steals. “Not just drive-and-kicks. You could say he didn’t have a good game, but a lot of our plays came from here or Oshae (Brissett). That’s what I was telling him: ‘Don’t worry about your points. We have other guys. Every night’s not going to be great.’”“He opens a lot up for us,” Howard added. “He defended well tonight, too.”Alexandra Moreo | Senior Staff PhotographerWhat Battle also brought is a presence. Battle, sometimes running the point, had five assists. He turned the ball over just once. He draws two defenders when he drives and shifts the defense to his side.His looks were there. He still created his own shots. He handled ball pressure well and, because he’s sometimes in the point guard slot, doesn’t always fall into the positions most suitable for big scoring numbers. He could score less and run more offense against Pitt because the scoring was coming from elsewhere.“I didn’t think we would survive a game when Tyus has four points late in the game,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “He’s been so consistent for us all year long. He just couldn’t get the ball in the basket. He had great looks, great drives, with guys pushing on him hard.”Battle didn’t score much, but he set up teammates who did enough. Now comes Florida State and the beginnings of the stiffer part of ACC play. The games Battle knows he’ll have to keep off-nights limited for SU to keep winning.After the final buzzer sounded Saturday, Syracuse players walked toward the locker room near the team bench. Assistant coach Gerry McNamara found Battle, told him to relax, that these games happen. He said he’s a great player who just had an off night. Just a blip. As Battle walked off the floor, with McNamara’s right arm wrapped around him, he wore a wide smile. PITTSBURGH — Twenty-eight minutes into the night, Tyus Battle hadn’t scored. His floaters weren’t going. He got stripped when driving through the lane. He hit every part of the rim on his misses.When he missed a layup early in the second half, with Syracuse’s lead shrinking and the arena getting louder, his father, Gary, crossed his arms. He looked straight toward the court in a Syracuse hat and orange sweatshirt. He shook his head. Then, in a moment, Battle ended his drought with a right-handed floater in the middle of the paint. From Petersen Events Center section 124, row 2, Gary held up two fingers, his son’s point total at that point.Battle struggled to get going, finishing with six points and three boards in Syracuse’s (16-6, 7-2 Atlantic Coast) 65-56 win at Pittsburgh (12-10, 2-7). He shot 2-for-13 overall and 0-for-3 from deep. Yet he said what he’s always said after rare nights like these: It was just a blip, a rough night, and he’ll bounce back in three days against Florida State.“Shots just didn’t fall,” Battle said. “I always come into play. I’ll just come ready to play Tuesday … I’m just trying to impact the game in any way possible. That’s really it.”More Coverage:AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse avoids scare despite 11 points from Battle and HughesSyracuse escapes, Tyus Battle struggles and more takeaways from Syracuse’s 65-56 win at Pittsburgh Commentslast_img read more
