Editor freed after getting presidential pardon

first_img Reporters Without Borders hails Faustin Bambou’s release on 23 February following an announcement on the national radio station that he had been pardoned by President François Bozizé. The editor of the privately-owned weekly Les Collines de l’Oubangui, Bambou spent six weeks in prison.He was sentenced to six months in prison on 28 January on charges of libel, insult and “incitement to revolt” over a 21 December article claiming that two government ministers received seven billion CFA francs (10 million euros) in commissions from the French nuclear energy company Areva. “Bambou’s release is a relief but we remind the authorities that he should never have been imprisoned,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He was the victim of bad faith and legal manoeuvring to circumvent the fact that, under the country’s laws, journalists are not supposed to be jailed for press offences.”The 23 February presidential decree granted Bambou “a complete remission of sentence.” He told Reporters Without Borders he was freed at about 2 p.m. the same day. His lawyers have withdrawn his appeal.———–28.01.08 – Newspaper editor sentenced to six months in prisonReporters Without Borders condemns the six-month prison sentence passed today on Faustin Bambou, the editor of the privately-owned weekly Les Collines de l’Oubangui, on charges of libel, insult and “incitement to revolt” because of an article accusing two ministers of taking kickbacks.“Bambou is the victim of judicial manoeuvring designed to put him in prison regardless,” the press freedom organisation said. “Circumventing the law to achieve this aim is very worrying for the rule of law and dangerous for the country. This distressing abuse of power by a government that undertook to respect the democratic rules will require an active response on our part.”Arrested on 11 January, Bambou was sentenced to six months in prison and symbolic damages of one CFA franc for claiming that two government ministers took several billion CFA francs in illegal commissions from the French company Areva. The court ordered Bambou’s newspaper to published its verdict. Bambou’s lawyers are to appeal.When the trial opened on 21 January, the state prosecutor requested a two-year sentence and a fine of 3 million CFA francs (4,500 euros). An attempt by Reporters Without Borders to mediate with the state prosecutor was unsuccessful. A promise to modify the charges was not kept.Bambou is the second journalist to be imprisoned since the law providing for imprisonment for press offences was repealed by the transitional parliament on 25 November 2004. The first was Michel Alkhaly-Ngady, the head of a print media union and editor of the Temps Nouveaux newspaper, who was imprisoned for two months in early 2007.

Celebrate John Belushi’s Birthday By Listening To Him Sit In With The Grateful Dead

first_imgActor and beloved comedian John Belushi would have celebrated his 68th birthday today. Best known for his tenure as an original cast member of Saturday Night Live and his roles in iconic films like Animal House and The Blues Brothers, Belushi was one of the most magnetic personalities of his generation, even attracting the likes of the Grateful Dead, particularly drummer Bill Kreutzmann.Kreutzmann recounts in his 2015 book Deal: My Three Decades of Drumming, Dreams, and Drugs with the Grateful Dead the great friendship and some of the wild times he shared with Belushi when the Dead used to get out to New York City. One such instance occurred the Dead’s opening night at the Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ on March 30, 1980 when Belushi got it into his head that he wanted to sing backup with the band on “U.S. Blues” during the encore. However, met with some resistance from the band, Kreutzmann had to nix Belushi’s wishes. Belushi had other plans.Kreutzmann writes:I had a really good show that night, and the entire band played well. We encored with “U.S. Blues” as planned and, right before the chorus, Belushi took everyone by surprise by cartwheeling onto the stage. It was a comedic ambush. He had on a sport coat with small American flags stuffed into both of his breast pockets and he landed his last cartwheel just in time to grab a microphone and join in on the chorus. The audience and everyone in the band – except for Phil – ate it up. It couldn’t have been rehearsed better. Belushi had impeccable comedic timing, musicality, balls, the works. And apparently, he didn’t take no for an answer.Take a listen to the Dead’s entire March 30, 1980 performance with Belushi helping out on vocals during the “U.S. Blues” encore:last_img read more

Klein, LL.M. ’67 has made a generous gift of $15 million to the Berkman Center. In recognition, the Center will now be known as the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society.“This gift helps ensure that Harvard Law School will remain at the forefront of problem solving as we confront and take advantage of the global and digital future,” said Martha Minow, Morgan and Helen Chu Dean of the Law School. “In 1997, a remarkably farsighted gift from the late Jack N. Berkman ’29 and Lillian R. Berkman created the Berkman Center for Internet & Society. The scope of the Center’s work and the global reach of the Internet have grown dramatically over the last two decades. Now, as the Center approaches a third decade of innovation, we are deeply grateful for Mike Klein’s gift, which will build on the Berkman family’s generosity to sustain the Center’s leadership position and allow for continued exploration in the years to come.”Klein’s gift is the largest individual gift to the Law School’s Campaign for the Third Century to date. The Campaign is part of the University-wide, $6.5 billion Harvard Campaign that runs until 2018. Read Full Storylast_img read more
