Human rights organizations call on Syrian government to implement the UN Resolution

Violations Documentation Centre in Syria (VDC) News News Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law February 3, 2021 Find out more Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria The Syrian government should immediately release human rights defenders, Mazen Darwish, Hussein Ghareer and Hani Al-Zitani, members of the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM), and drop all the charges against them. Another hearing of their trial held on 18 November 2013 at the Anti-Terrorism Court in Damascus on alleged terrorism charges brought against them by the Syrian Government’s Air Force Intelligence. Reports confirmed that once again the trial was postponed to 27 January 2014, at the request of the prosecution which has failed to prove the charges against them.Mazen Darwish is a journalist and head of the Damascus based SCM, which was instrumental in disseminating information regarding the situation in Syria to sources outside the country. He was arrested on 16 February 2012 along with 15 others including Hussein Ghareer, and Hani Al-Zitani when Air Force Intelligence conducted a raid on the offices of the SCM in Damascus.We the undersigned organizations express serious concern for the security and physical and psychological integrity of human rights defenders, Mazen Darwish, Hussein Ghareer, and Hani Al-Zitani and we strongly believe that they are targeted solely due to their peaceful and legitimate human rights activities in Syria. We are also very concerned about their current situation which has had more of a political grounding rather than any legal basis, in particular given that their office was raided without a warrant and in light of the failure of the judiciary to provide any evidence against them.Our organizations also recall that on 15 May 2013, the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 67/262 on “The situation in the Syrian Arab Republic” which strongly condemned:2 ….. all violations of international humanitarian law and the continued widespread and systematic gross violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms by the Syrian authorities and the Government-affiliated shabbiha militias, such as (…) massacres, arbitrary executions, extrajudicial killings, the killing and persecution of protestors, human rights defenders and journalists, arbitrary detention, enforced disappearances, violations of the rights of the child, (…) unlawful interference with access to medical treatment, failure to respect and protect medical personnel, torture, systematic sexual violence, including rape in detention, and ill-treatment, including against children as well as any human rights abuses or violations of international humanitarian law by anti-Government armed groups; The resolution also called on the Syrian authorities to:5. ….. immediately release all persons arbitrarily detained, including the members of the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression, publish a list of all detention facilities, ensure that conditions of detention comply with applicable international law, and immediately allow access of independent monitors to all detention facilities;We believe also that their continuous detention forms part of a wider campaign of threats and harassment against human rights defenders in Syria in order to prevent them from carrying out their legitimate and peaceful human rights work.We, the undersigned groups, therefore:1. Call on the Syrian authorities to immediately implement the UN General Assembly resolution 67/262 and release immediately and unconditionally Mazen Darwish, Hussein Ghareer, and Hani Al-Zitani as well as all human rights defenders in Syria since their detention is arbitrary as it only aims at sanctioning their human rights activities;2. Call on the Syrian authorities to drop all the charges against Mazen Darwish, Hussein Ghareer, and Hani Al-Zitani as well as Mansour Al-Omar and Abdel-Rahman Hamada and human rights defenders in Syria;3. Call on the Syrian government to respect its international obligations including those outlined in the UN Declaration on the Right and Responsibility of Individuals, Groups and Organs of Society to Promote and Protect Universally Recognized Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, and guaranteed under Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), to which Syria is a state party;4. Call for the UN and the international community, in particular States supportive of the Syrian regime, to press for the immediate and unconditional release of all those currently detained in violation of their right to freedom of expression, guaranteed under Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), to which Syria is a state party.

Security measures deployed for Olympic torch relay in Paris condemned as “shameful”

first_img Follow the news on China News March 12, 2021 Find out more News News Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard gave a news conference at the organisation’s Paris headquarters yesterday to condemn the “shameful” security measures that have been prepared for the Olympic torch relay’s passage through Paris tomorrow.“Thirty-two riot police and gendarme trucks, 65 motorcycle policemen, a helicopter and boats on the Seine – not even a visiting head of state gets that,” Ménard said. “All that is missing is an appeal to Parisians to stay at home along the lines established in Beijing, where only officials welcomed the Olympic torch on a Tiananmen Square emptied of passers-by. And you will have noticed that it was the Chinese minister of state security, the official responsible for repression in China, who was at the airport for the torch’s arrival.”Reporters Without Borders has decided not to try to stage any protest near the Olympic torch. “We do not want any gesture to be misinterpreted,” Ménard said. “We do not want people to be able to say that we are the ones who use violence. We are not trouble-makers or agitators.” Ménard nonetheless promised “symbolic and spectacular” protests while the Olympic torch relay is in Paris.Meanwhile, a new opinion poll released yesterday confirms that most French people support the idea of a boycott of the Beijing Olympic Games opening ceremony by French President Nicolas Sarkozy. A total of 62 per cent of the people questioned support this campaign call issued by Reporters Without Borders, up from 53 per cent on 19-20 March.Reporters Without Borders calls on Parisians to go to the foot of the Eiffel Tower at midday dressed in black or wearing the T-shirt with the Olympic rings replaced by handcuffs in order to show support for human rights in China and Tibet.

Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Identifying Delinquency Hotspots Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Mortgage foreclosures have been shrinking, according to CoreLogic. The 30 days or more delinquency rate for June 2019 was 4%, while 4% of mortgages were delinquent by at least 30 days or more including those in foreclosure.”A strong economy and eight-plus years of home price growth have made mortgage foreclosure an infrequent event,” said CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft. “This backdrop will help the mortgage market limit delinquencies in most of the country whenever a downturn should start.”Despite delinquency rates sitting at their lowest levels since 1999, several states and metropolitan areas posted small annual increases in June. The highest gains were in Vermont (+0.7%), New Hampshire (+0.3%), Nebraska (+0.2%) and Minnesota (0.2%), while the other four states–Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin and Connecticut–experienced a nominal gain of just 0.1%.”While the nation continues to post near-record-low mortgage delinquency rates, we are seeing signs of emerging stress in some states,” said CoreLogic President and CEO Frank Martell. “We saw rates jump in states such as Vermont, New Hampshire, Nebraska and Minnesota that weren’t tied to a natural disaster.”CoreLogic identified these states as “delinquency hotspots.” City-level hotspots with delinquency increases included Janesville-Beloit, Wisconsin, with a 2.5 percentage point increase, as well as Pine Bluff, Arkansas; Panama City, Florida; Altoona, Pennsylvania; and Kokomo, Indiana.Each state saw serious delinquency rates decrease in June 2019 except for Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota and Virginia, which stayed the same. Serious delinquencies increased in 20 metropolitan areas, while 48 metropolitan areas saw their serious delinquency rate stay the same.Despite the decreases in foreclosures overall, the transition rate increase year-over-year in June. The share of mortgages that transitioned from current to 30-days past due was 1.1% in June 2019, up from 0.9% in June 2018. By comparison, in January 2007, just before the start of the financial crisis, the current-to-30-day transition rate was 1.2% and peaked in November 2008 at 2%.Find the full report from CoreLogic here.
