AfghanistanAsia – Pacific RSF_en AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Related documents mujadadi18may2010.mp3MPEG – 521.28 KB Follow the news on Afghanistan News RSF asks International Criminal Court to investigate murders of journalists in Afghanistan Receive email alerts News Help by sharing this information Mujadadi was arrested on 18 September at a voting station in Kapisa province that was being visited by the provincial governor. In recent months, he had reported being threatened by both the governor and NDS officials because of his independent coverage of events in the province including the case of the France 3 TV crew that was abducted there last December. Organisation to go further Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” Radio station director Hojatullah Mujadadi is currently the only journalist detained in Afghanistan. Although President Hamid Karzai ordered his release, the National Directorate of Security (NDS), an Afghan intelligence agency, is still holding him in appalling conditions, without allowing him the right to be defended by a lawyer. His arrests violates Afghan law, under which all cases involving journalists should be handled by the Media Commission.Reporters Without Borders has an audio recording that clearly show that the NDS wanted to silence Mujadadi. Irritated by his independent reporting in the northeastern province of Kapisa, where he has been Radio Kapisa FM’s director for the past several months, the security forces found a way to arrest and charge him last month. The recording also sheds light on the disturbing methods used by the NDS to recruit journalists as informers.In the audio recording made by Reporters Without Borders last May, Mujadadi said he had been summoned several times for questioning by NDS officials, who asked him to fill out a cooperation agreement form. According to Mujadadi, this would have meant agreeing to be a government spy. He was also asked to provide information about his contacts and to make detailed reports.“Yes, this form was called the ‘Cooperation Form’ and if I had filled it out, I would have become an NDS member in addition to being a journalist,” Mujadadi says in this recording. “I was supposed to spy for them.”Mujadadi’s revelations conclusively demonstrate that the NDS tries to turn independent journalists into informers. We urge the relevant authorities, including the interior minister Bismillah Khan Mohammadi, to put a stop to such practices.It is disturbing that the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) accepts the use of such methods by the NDS, its partner in the fight against terrorism in Afghanistan. The ISAF public information services never issued a correction to a statement in which they wrongly reported that Mujadadi was released in last September.Listen to the audio recording: News News Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says May 3, 2021 Find out more October 18, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Intelligence agency tried to force journalist Mujadadi to be informer before arresting him June 2, 2021 Find out more March 11, 2021 Find out more

There was one critical charge, the chargesheet was filed…all accused have been arrested….one was abroad, who was brought back after the LOC was issued, and was also arrested”, he submitted”It is the grievance of the CBI everyday that they are overburdened, and that matters which can be dealt with by the local police must not be referred to them…and here, on the very first day, the Single Bench said that there was ‘serious lackness and incompleteness’ in the investigation and involved the CBI…this is not a case of the rarest of rare…you find this in every case that something is left out…if any lackness is found, the trial court will order inquiry…14 people were made accused, and all are arrested….the chargesheet is filed…there is no malafide or allegation of bias against anybody….in fact, in the same matter, an earlier bench of the same high court had declined CBI enquiry”, he pressed.”Tell us in your own words why the CBI inquiry was directed?”, inquired Justice L. Nageswara Rao.”It was said that some accused were only made witnesses and not accused…but that status can be changed subsequently…then there was a discrepancy between the intial statement of the IO and the finding in the charge sheet finally filed as to whether the death was by a sharp object or a blunt weapon…the chargesheet contained the correct position…that has been showed as slackness….the third was that the CCTV footage was not viewed…there was only one CCTV and that found mention in the report…”, argued Mr. Singh.He urged that there would be no impediment in requiring such “slackness”, if any, to be corrected by SIT itself.”How do you say a rare case is made out, Mr. Giri”, asked Justice Rao from Senior Counsel V. Giri, for the petitioners.”The weapons were not shown to the forensic surgeon, who had conducted the autopsy, when he was questioned. When finally they were shown, the plastic covers were not removed, even though it was permitted by the High Court The forensic surgeon said none of the injuries on the bodies were caused by these weapons…”, advanced Mr. Giri.Justice Rao asked, “What are the reasons for which CBI inquiry can be directed? What are the circumstances where the court can come to a conclusion that injustice would be done (if probe is not transferred)?”. Mr. Giri, in response, referred to the earlier top court constitution bench authorities on the point.”Mr. Singh, you can respond if you want, but we won’t pass any interim order as of now”, observed Justice Rao. “Has the CBI continued with the investigation?”, asked the Judge.”The DB (of the Kerala HC) did not stay the inquiry…”, submitted Mr. Giri. “Let the CBI file an affidavit, then we will see. If substantial progress has been made, we won’t interfere…”, said Justice Rao finally.The bench was hearing the state’s SLP against the August 26 decision of a division bench of the Kerala High Court upholding the Single Bench order directing CBI Investigation in the Periya twin murder case.The bench comprising of Chief Justice S. Manikumar and Justice CT Ravikumar, partly allowed the state’s appeal by setting aside the Single Bench order to the extent it quashed the charge sheet filed by the Special Investigation Team, which had investigated the crime initially. The bench, therefore directed the CBI to conduct ‘further investigation’ based on the re-registration of the case and file supplementary report in terms of the provisions under Section 173(8), Cr.P.C.Kripesh and Sarath Lal, Congress Party workers, were hacked to death, on 17th February 2019 at about 7.45 p.m. using swords and iron pipes. Writ petitions were filed alleging that the deceased Kripesh and Sarath Lal @ Joshy were Youth Congress workers and the accused persons who got allegiance to the political party-CPI(M) committed their murder due to political vendetta. The single bench of Justice B Sudheendra Kumar ordered the CBI probe allowing the petition filed by the parents of the slain youth. Observing the investigation completed by the Crime Branch of the state police was a “sham”, the Court had also set aside the final report filed in May 20 arraying 10 CPM workers as the accused. While interfering with the single bench order to the extent it had set aside the final report, the bench observed:”On our careful perusal of the case diary and upon considering the rival contentions we are of the considered view that it cannot be said that no offence whatsoever was made out prima facie, in the charge sheet and hence, at the stage when the police report under Section 173, Cr.P.C. was forwarded to the Court after completion of the investigation exercise of extra ordinary jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution to set aside the said charge sheet was not warranted at all.”The bench added that its finding that the final report was not to be set aside cannot be taken as an affirmation that the investigation was flawless and it was fair to the core. To uphold the CBI investigation part of the order, the bench said that the fact that the investigation conducted does not instill full confidence and the slackness and incompleteness in investigation or lack of serious investigation had occurred in respect of some vital aspects, at least some of which may result in miscarriage of justice. It observed:Taking note of the serious slackness and incompleteness that occurred in the matter of investigation which if investigated seriously, some times would have turned this case now rests on circumstantial evidence, to a case of a direct evidence tends us to think that to instill confidence and also to do justice to the parties it is only W.A.No.2216 of 2019 105 proper in the said circumstances to transfer the investigation to CBI. That has already been ordered by the writ Court. Hence, it is upheld.The bench also set aside the finding of the single bench which held that circumstances indicate that the contention of the petitioners that the twin murder in this case was planned and executed not by the first accused but by the CPM Party, is probablePicture Courtesy: Kerala Kaumudi Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Fluor is set to proceed with the construction planning of a new diesel hydrotreater and steam methane reforming hydrogen plant, as part of the Esso Fawley Strategy (FAST) Project in the UK for ExxonMobil.The move comes as Esso Petroleum, a UK affiliate of ExxonMobil, has received planning approval from the UK New Forest District Council for the new plant that is planned to be built at the Fawley refinery and petrochemical site near Southampton, England.Fluor, which has provided front-end engineering design, will now be responsible for providing engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction on a reimbursable basis for the FAST project.Fluor to build new diesel hydrotreater and steam methane reforming hydrogen plantUnder the contract, the firm will design and construct the new hydrotreater supported by hydrogen plant as well as provide modifications to existing facilities at the Fawley site.Fluor is undertaking engineering and procurement for the project from its Farnborough office in the UK. Construction on the project is scheduled to commence later this year.Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business group president Mark Fields said: “Fluor’s global project team has in-depth experience delivering projects for ExxonMobil, particularly at operational sites, and is using this expertise to optimize design and deliver this critical project in a safe, timely and capital efficient manner.“Fluor will use its jointly owned fabrication yard for module construction to provide quality and schedule benefits and minimize disruption to existing operations.”Earlier this year, ExxonMobil made a final investment decision to expand the Fawley refinery to increase the production of ultra-low sulfur diesel.The Fawley refinery is located on Southampton Water, UK, and the $1bn expansion plan aims to increase the production by approximately 45% or 38,000 barrels per day, along with logistics improvements.The refinery expansion is expected to help reduce the need to import diesel into the UK, as the country imported approximately half of its supply in 2017.Additionally, the Fawley refinery site has strategic access to distribution logistics across southern England and export access to other markets in Europe and the Atlantic basin.
