Hands off Grigory Petrenko! The whole world is watching!

We join with people around the world to demand guarantees for his safety and immediate release from prison.On Nov. 18, attorney Ana Ursachi reported that the Moldovan government, dominated by oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc, may be preparing to physically eliminate opposition political leader Petrenko. The regime has spread false information in the media about a connection between Petrenko and two young men arrested on Nov. 13 in Chisinau as alleged “Donbass mercenaries.”Last week, we learned that Petrenko was deliberately exposed to the danger of tuberculosis infection by being taken for daily walks in a courtyard reserved exclusively for TB patients. On Oct. 18, Petrenko was subjected to physical abuse during an illegal and unauthorized nighttime raid on his prison cell by anonymous employees of the Department of Penitentiary Institutions.Petrenko and six of his colleagues were singled out for arrest during a peaceful demonstration on Sept. 6, 2015, and have been held under “preventive arrest” ever since. Their detention has been extended three times so far.On Sept. 30, members of all factions of the Parliamentary Association of the Council of Europe (PACE), of which Petrenko is a former leader and honorary member, signed a statement demanding the immediate release of the political prisoners.The torturous and degrading conditions of imprisonment have been brought to the attention of the United Nations, the European Union, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the U.S. Embassy and other bodies, but no action has been forthcoming.Moldova’s pro-Western, oligarch-dominated regime is the responsibility of the European and U.S. governments, which supported its rise and grip on power for their own geostrategic and profit-driven interests. If anything befalls Grigory Petrenko and his fellow political prisoners, the responsibility will rest on the heads of officials in Washington and Brussels, as well as Chisinau.It is time to act now to secure the release of Grigory Petrenko and his fellow political prisoners, before it is too late! Gregory Butterfield, coordinator, Solidarity with Ukraine Anti-fascists Committee (USA)International Action Center (USA)last_img read more

Investigation into shooting attack on Myanmar journalist goes nowhere

first_img News It occurred while Swe Win was vacationing with a colleague and their two families in the south of the western state of Rakhine. On 30 December, the owner of the guesthouse where they were spending that night received several phone calls from military intelligence officers, police officers and local civilian officials in the nearby town of Thandwe. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for an independent inquiry into a clearly targeted shooting attack on Swe Win, the Myanmar Now news website’s well-known editor, in which both civilian and military officials seem to have been involved. It took place 11 months ago, on 31 December 2019, but has only just been revealed by the website. The callers wanted to know about Swe Win’s movements and, in particular, asked the owner to let them know as soon as Swe Win left the next morning. Swe Win told RSF: “Our stories have angered and shamed many individuals in power, which is the only reason why I believe I was shot. This incident was a serious targeted threat with the aim of silencing me and stopping my work. However, as long as I remain alive, I will continue to speak out and to do very professional journalism in a powerful way.” Organisation US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture The local police investigation into the shooting has made no progress in the 11 months since it took place. Forty minutes after Swe Win and his companions left the guesthouse the next morning, the shot that wounded him was fired from behind tall grass as they were turning a corner on a country lane. Shortly thereafter, the local police reported that he had been hit by a piece of flying debris from a dynamite explosion at a nearby rock quarry.

December 2, 2020 Investigation into shooting attack on Myanmar journalist goes nowhere Pathetic denials RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Threat Follow the news on Myanmar “In view of the pathetic denials by the Thandwe police, we call on Myanmar’s central authorities to order an independent investigation to shed all possible light on this shocking murder attempt,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The implication of civilian and military officials in this ambush speaks volumes about the methods used by the authorities to intimidate journalists. These methods must stop. The credibility of the rule of law in Myanmar is at stake.” This version was contradicted by the head of the local civilian administration who – in response to Swe Win’s questions three days later – denied that there was any quarry or roadworks in the area. He also denied that the police had been aware of Swe Win’s presence in the region prior to the shooting although his subordinates and the police had questioned the guesthouse owner about his presence. Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar RSF_en News In response to a defamation complaint by a follower of the fundamentalist Buddhist monk Ashin Wirathu, Swe Win was arrested at Yangon airport on 30 July 2017. He was then freed on bail but, during the next two years, he had to attend a total of 71 court hearings in Mandalay, each one requiring an 18-hour road trip from his home in Yangon.

Henry Street HQ to expand

The cells are to remain at the existing station.There are around 350 garda personnel in the district, which includes Henry Street, Mayorstone and Mary Street stations.Plans are also in place to relocate Limerick District Court to a more secure location in the city, and while a Henry Street site had been widely mooted, the likelihood now is that it will be built on a vacant space in Mulgrave Street, and close to the prison.

USA: NSGL Commemorates Battle of Midway

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USA: NSGL Commemorates Battle of Midway USA: NSGL Commemorates Battle of Midway Three veterans of the Battle of Midway were honored at Midway Airport during a ceremony sponsored by Naval Station Great Lakes (NSGL), the Chicago Department of Aviation, and the Chicago Marine Heritage Society, June 7.Midway veterans retired Navy aviator Capt. Grant C. “Jack” Young, Navy veteran Jack Coombe and Marine Corps veteran Thomas Tobin shared the stage with fellow Pacific theater veterans, retired Navy Capt. Chuck Downey and Marine Corps veteran Emmanuel “Manny” Bud.Speaking at the ceremony were Capt. Randy Lynch, NSGL commanding officer, who was the keynote speaker; Commissioner Rosemarie Andolino, Chicago Department of Aviation, who thanked veterans for their service; Capt. Carlos Ortiz, Navy Region Midwest chaplain, who delivered the invocation and benediction; and Cmdr. Robert Sullivan, NSGL executive officer, who served as master of ceremonies for the event. Also in attendance was Chicago Alderman Michael Zalewski of the 23rd Ward, who serves as chair of the city’s aviation committee.“We salute these warriors of the Battle of Midway,” said Lynch. “Words cannot express our nation’s gratitude for your extraordinary service.”“On behalf of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the city of Chicago, and the Chicago Department of Aviation, I want to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation for your service to our country,” said Andolino. “Thanks to you, and all of our country’s veterans and active military, all of us here enjoy the freedom we do today. Thank you so much.”Coombe and Young, both in their 90s, shared their combat experiences with the crowd of over 100 gathered in the airport terminal. Midway Airport’s Memorial for the Battle of Midway served as a backdrop for the ceremony.“I am proud of the United States Navy and proud to be a part of it,” said Coombe, a Navy veteran of Pearl Harbor, the Solomon Islands campaign, the Marshall Islands campaign, the Philippines Islands campaign, and the Saipan and Okinawa campaigns. The Japanese navy “had their wings clipped,” said Coombe of the victory at Midway.“Midway taught the Navy some valuable lessons,” said Young, a retired U.S. Navy aviator, who participated in the Marianas campaign and the First Battle of the Philippine Sea, and is a recipient of the Navy Cross. “I am grateful that God spared me to be here to talk to you folks today.”Lynch gave an overview of the battle in his remarks. The Battle of Midway took place June 4-7, 1942. During the battle, U.S. Navy carrier strike forces defeated an Imperial Japanese navy carrier task force. Facing four veteran Japanese aircraft carriers, the U.S. Navy won the battle with only three aircraft carriers – USS Enterprise (CV 6), USS Hornet (CV 8) and USS Yorktown (CV 5) – augmented by land-based fighters, bombers and torpedo planes from Midway.During the battle, Japan lost four carriers, a heavy cruiser and 256 planes. The U.S. lost Yorktown, a destroyer and 145 planes. Japan’s losses, both at Midway and at the Battle of Coral Sea, shifted the balance of naval power in the Pacific, and derailed Japanese plans to both threaten Hawaii and isolate Australia.In commemoration of the victory, retired Navy Rear Adm. Mack Gaston, and Lynch placed a wreath at the Memorial for the Battle of Midway. Midway Airport’s Memorial for the Battle of Midway features an actual Dauntless dive bomber in addition to interactive displays.“This airport was named Chicago Midway Airport in 1949 to commemorate the heroes of the Battle of Midway and World War II veterans,” noted Andolino.Navy Band Great Lakes Sailors Musician 1st Class (SW) Matthew Anderson, Musicians 3rd Class Elizabeth Clapper, Judd Burton and Jeff Keller, and Musician Seaman Kristen Brawner, provided musical accompaniment for the ceremony.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, June 11, 2012; Image: Navy View post tag: Battle View post tag: usa Training & Education Share this article View post tag: Commemoratescenter_img View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic June 11, 2012 View post tag: Midway View post tag: NSGLlast_img read more

USS Mesa Verde Reaches Qualification Level Milestone

first_img August 12, 2014 USS Mesa Verde (LPD 19) celebrated its 131st Sailor to qualify as an Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist (ESWS) since deploying in February, bringing the overall qualification level of the ship to 83 percent. Authorities View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Level USS Mesa Verde Reaches Qualification Level Milestone View post tag: milestone View post tag: americas View post tag: Navalcenter_img The high percent of qualification is not only a milestone for the ship, but for the Sailors as well, as many feel becoming ESWS qualified is one way to improve and their naval career in a significant way. In accordance with NAVADMIN 268/10, the Navy mandates that all Sailors receive their primary warfare pin no later than 30 months after reporting aboard a warfare qualifying command.“It is more than doing your required qualifications, it is about the ship’s survivability,” said Electronics Technician 1st Class Sean Spitzer, one of the command ESWS coordinators. “It is big for a Sailor’s career. This program is one that a Sailor both needs to and should want to do.”The ESWS program aims to provide Sailors with basic knowledge about the ship to which they are assigned, from damage control to engineering and combat systems to ship operations. The program also includes naval history and heritage to help Sailors gain a better perspective about the Navy.Prior to deployment, the ship’s Command Master Chief (CMC) David Twiford and command coordinators Chief Hospital Corpsman Justin Rains, Electronics Technician 1st Class Sean Spitzer and Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 1st Class Eugene Williams took on the task of redeveloping the program. They looked for opportunities to improve the ability of Sailors to both learn and retain information in a way that would conform to a busy deployment schedule.“We took everything and made it a more clear and concise outline for Sailors to follow,” said Rains.Before beginning the ESWS program, Sailors have to complete pre-requisite training in general shipboard living, including quarterdeck watches, fire fighting, pipe patching, maintenance and sentry guard lookout. When Sailors have learned these basic core elements, they move on to training sessions focusing on the fundamentals of each department and collecting signatures on their Personnel Qualification Standard (PQS). These signatures mark their progress through the departments and prove the required training has been completed.“It is hard and it is supposed to be hard,” said Spitzer. “Sailors are supposed to learn a lot, and retain a lot, of information to help the overall war fighting capability of the ship.”Mesa Verde is a part of the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group and, with the embarked 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, is deployed in support of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.[mappress]Press Release, August 12, 2014; Image: Wikimedia View post tag: Navy View post tag: reaches View post tag: Qualification View post tag: USS Mesa Verde Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Mesa Verde Reaches Qualification Level Milestone Share this articlelast_img read more
