Statement by @hrw on today's violence by #Tatmadaw & police in #Burma: "The #Myanmar security forces’ clear escalation in use of lethal force -- in multiple towns & cities across the country in response to mostly peaceful anti-coup protesters -- is outrageous & unacceptable..."
"...and must be immediately halted. Live ammunition should not be used to control or disperse protests and lethal force can only be used to protect life or prevent serious injury.."/2 @pomyanmar @MOFAMyanmar @myanmar_moi @UNinMyanmar

"...Any deaths and serious injuries should be promptly and impartially investigated. Those found responsible for any unlawful acts should be held accountable..."/3

SHAMEFUL order by #JusticeChandrachud & co, to RESTRAIN @SudarshanNewsTV's program on #UPSC_Jihad ... Judges didn't watch a single clip of the program & fallen 4 secular-cries of Muslim-Petitioners based on slides/screenshots 4m program.

P.S. Chandrachud in-line to become CJI😎
The way #JusticeChandrachud & co, ran the proceedings in the case yesterday, it was CLEAR they came to the court to restrain the channel. They were just chanting communalism and didn't listen to channel's request to see the video of the program first.
#Sad
#SupremeCourt order to censor @SudarshanNewsTV 4 #UPSC_Jihad story, is ATTACK on #MediaFreedom. Restraining it with color of communalism is dangerous mindset.

@rsprasad @narendramodi MUST SPEAK to #CJIBobde & take ACTION against #JusticeChandrachud & Co!

1/6 We met with journalists and bloggers at the Foundation and discussed the President’s Decrees.

2/6 These Decrees cover the issues of cancellation of custodial sentence for libel and insult for journalists.
3/6 Also, they cover the issues of the improvement of mechanism for bringing officials to responsibility for obstructing the media and imposing pressure on journalists.
4/6 Colleagues unanimously supported the relevance of improving legislation on these issues and moved their motion.

1/2 Асосий мақсадимиз – аввал ҳам таъкидлаганимиздек, журналист ёки блогер матбуотда айтган сўзи учун қамалмаслиги керак. Ҳамма ривожланган давлатлар каби, иши очиқ судда, адолатли кўрилсин. cutt.ly/IfUQgbv

2/2 Фондимиз ОАВ вакилларининг қонуний ҳақ-ҳуқуқларига ҳар қандай шаклда тазйиқ ўтказган мансабдор шахсларга нисбатан жавобгарликни ошириш бўйича Президент Қарорининг тезроқ ҳаётга жорий қилиниши тарафдори ва бунга ҳар тарафлама ёрдам беришга тайёрмиз.
1/2 Our main goal, as we mentioned earlier, is not to have a journalist or blogger go to jail for what he or she said in the press. As in all developed countries, a case must be heard in an open and fair court.

Ministry of Home Affairs in India & right-wing social media trolls identified as "Modi's Yoddhas" have been termed as 2 of the 20 worst digital predators in 2020 by @RSF_inter, an NGO that specialises in the defense of #mediafreedom. @PIBHomeAffairs (1/4)

We @AIIndia have similar findings on the situation in Jammu & Kashmir and online violence faced by women in India. The 213 days long internet shutdown in J&K clearly contributed to India's presence on this list along with the incessant trolling faced by women in India. (2/4)
.@AIIndia's study found that 1 in every 7 tweets that mentioned #womenpoliticians in India was 'problematic' or 'abusive'. The situation is terrible with a shrinking space for dissent & unlawful surveillance against #HumanRightsDefenders through spyware & WhatsApp targeting.(3/4)

Julian Assange’s detention “sets a dangerous precedent for journalists”, according to politicians from the Council of Europe’s parliamentary arm, who voted on Tuesday to oppose the WikiLeaks founder’s extradition to the US

theguardian.com/media/2020/jan…
Labour peer and UK Rapporteur on #mediafreedom Lord Foulkes, ...had drafted an initial report – Threats to Media Freedom and Journalists’ Security in Europe – that will now contain amendments referring to Assange tabled by a number of European parliamentarians.
One of the amendments backs the recommendation of the UN special rapporteur on torture who called last year for Assange’s release and for extradition to the United States to be blocked.

Let's see how #Fidesz does in a debate. Even for us, this is uncharted territory, since in Hungary, they refuse debating!🤷‍♀️ Image

Wide debate on #eprivacy right now. I see a lot of misunderstandings, let me clarify a few things (& further info: bit.ly/2i99Kd5)
Should I not be asked before my emails are accessed and used? Don't you think the same? Is this asking too much? #eprivacy
New #eprivacy rules = more flexibility for all businesses to process communication data w/ user consent. Under current rules #telecoms can't
