News Tajikistan imposes total control over independent broadcast media August 25, 2020 Find out more November 6, 2020 Find out more TajikistanEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders voiced concern at a “serious worsening” in press freedom in Tajikistan as independent and opposition newspapers were prevented from printing, coming after a physical attack on one journalist and repeated threats against another.The widest range of tactics was being used to silence the few independent voices as elections approach, said the international press freedom organisation.Tax police closed and sealed private printers Jiyonkhon on 18 August preventing the publication of three newspapers. On 16 August the state printers Sanadvora refused to print opposition newspaper Odamu Olam. This came in the wake of a physical attack against Rajabi Mirzo, editor of Ruzi Nav, and repeated threats against independent journalist Mavluda Sultonzoda. Reporters Without Borders appealed to President Emomali Rakhmonov to “make sure that Rajabi Mirzo’s assailants did not enjoy impunity and that official procedures were not used as false pretexts for gagging the press”.The private Jiyonkhon printworks was closed before it began printing independent weekly Nerui Sukhan. According to the tax authorities, Jiyonkhon was using a larger amount of paper than it was registered for. It will remain closed pending investigation.Jiyonkhon is the only printer in the country that agrees to print the three opposition weeklies Nerui Sukhan, Ruzi Nav and Najot (newspaper of the opposition Islamic Revival party). The tax authorities’ decision thus deprives the country of three independent papers until further notice.State printers Sanadvora refused to print opposition weekly Odamu Olam, breaking its contract with the paper. The newspaper has not appeared since then. No other printer will take it over.This all happened as working conditions for journalists worsened.Mavluda Sultonzoda, journalist on the opposition weeklies Ruzi Nav and Nerui Sukhan, received phoned threats after writing an article headlined “Who is Rakhmonov?” in which she criticised President Rakhmonov and his government. She revealed that she has been receiving threats since December 2003. For the first time, however threats were also being made against her family.A few days earlier, on 29 July, Rajabi Mirzo, editor of Ruzi Nav, was attacked in Dushanbe. Eye-witnesses said that an assailant lay in wait for the journalist to return home for several hours at a bus stop on Avenue Profsoyuz, then beat the journalist on the head with a blunt instrument before fleeing. Mirzo said he believed the attack was linked to his articles exposing government corruption. The Dushanbe prosecutor’s office has opened an investigation.

Research on men abused as children welcomed

first_imgChristchurch Press 25 June 2012A “well-overdue” study on men sexually abused during childhood has been launched by Otago University. It is the first national research project to look into male sexual-abuse victims, and some survivors hope it will raise awareness on an “ignored area of pain”. Dunedin School of Medicine clinical psychologist Tess Patterson started the investigation into sexual-abuse risk, resiliency and treatment factors this year. The project will cover the impact and consequences of male childhood sexual abuse, support systems, and sexual offending by victims. One Christchurch sexual-abuse survivor who has been involved in the research said it was “bloody hard” to openly talk about his experience, but he was “actually quite stoked” someone was taking an interest.….Christchurch-based Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse Trust manager Ken Clearwater has been pushing for research for years and was pleased it was under way. He said most of New Zealand’s sexual-abuse research was targeted towards women, and it was “well overdue” for someone to focus on male victims.http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/7168033/Research-on-men-abused-as-children-welcomedlast_img read more
