The safety of journalists must be guaranteed in the new Libyan state or else the media will be unable to work without resorting to self-censorship or private protection.Legislative and judicial measures must be adopted urgently to stop the rule of law being undermined by impunity and to ensure that freedom of expression and information – a necessary condition for establishing a democratic society – are protected and respected in Libya.

The letter petition, moved on behalf of 809 students from across the country, urges the Court to take suo moto cognizance of the issue and put the decision to conduct compartment examination in abeyance, until the pandemic subsides. Compartment exams are conducted for students of Class X and XII who are unable to clear one or two subjects in board exams. The Students’ Association expresses concerns over conducting of offline examinations amid the pandemic, as it shall expose students/ parents/ teachers and staff to a lot of risk in view of exponential growth of the virus in the country. The decision is also asserted to be contrary to the Unlock III guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs, which provides that the schools, colleges and educational institutions will remain closed until August 31, 2020. Reference is also made to a statement issued by the Union Minister of Higher Education, stating that no decision has been taken yet on the reopening of the schools in the country and any decision thereon shall be taken without considering safety of the students. “In view of unprecedented health emergency and rising numbers of the COVID-19 cases in the country, the conduct of compartment examination will expose the examinees to a great risk and will undeniably sacrifice basic principle of integrity by neglecting equal basis and treatment to all examinees,” the letter states. Inter alia, the letter petition points out practical difficulties in concluding the compartment examination as many colleges have already announced the admission closure dates, whereas schedule for compartment examinations has not been released. Further, online classes for many students who have been promoted from Class X to Class XI, have already started, which is adversely affecting the students who are stranded with no certainty regarding completion of their examination. Significantly, 150198 students from class X and 87651 students from class XII were placed within the compartment category. This decision came to be challenged before the Top Court in the case of Anika Samvedi & Ors. v. Union of India & Anr. The Top Court had therein, vide order dated July 31, 2020, directed the Petitioners to make a representation in this behalf before the CBSE. The letter petition points out that despite making a representation before the authorities, they have upheld the decision to conduct compartment examination, “without taking into account the present health crisis”. The letter clarifies that the students do not contend the importance of the compartment exams but they seek an appropriate direction in this regard, only because of the pandemic situation. They have urged the Top Court to take steps for alternative evaluation scheme, to do complete justice. They have also, in the interregnum, sought for grant of provisional passing certificates, so that students of Class XII are not deprived of admissions into colleges.

‘It’s almost like coming home’: 2 former Secret Service agents from 9/11 return to work at World Trade Center

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — When Secret Service agents Damian Schwartz and Don Vinci walked toward their offices at the World Trade Center on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, they were unaware they would spend the rest of the day responding to the worst terror attack in U.S. history.“I just remember it being a beautiful day, the sky was as blue as I had ever seen it,” said Schwartz, 60.Longtime friends and colleagues, Schwartz and Vinci were both assigned to the Secret Service field office at the World Trade Center in 1999.On that September morning, Schwartz said he was supervising four new interns. He had gone up to the office to grab a few things before meeting them for their first day on the job when he heard the sound of the first plane crash. Schwartz said he quickly guided a group of administrative staff to the ground floor.Meanwhile, Vinci had spent the morning in the building’s gym and was preparing to attend a meeting about the upcoming United Nation General Assembly, a high-security event that brings together more than 150 heads of state every fall.After hearing the initial blast and feeling the building shake, however, Vinci grabbed an emergency medical kit and ran down to the plaza to help the injured.“I saw things that people should never see,” said Vinci, who still finds it difficult to watch any news coverage of the attacks. “This is probably the most I’ve spoken about it to anyone.”Vinci spoke to ABC News on the condition that his picture not be published in this story.Both men spent the rest of the day guiding people out of the area, helping New York City Police Department officers get people onto ferries, and assisting with recovery efforts.By the end of the day, the building where their offices were based — 7 World Trade Center — had also collapsed.But both Schwartz and Vinci returned to work the following morning. What they found was both a job, and a place forever changed.Seventeen years later, both men still wake up and head to the World Trade Center every morning. Now retired from their careers as Secret Service agents, they are still tasked with keeping the complex safe as its private security directors.Vinci started first, in 2016, and is now in charge of two of the six towers in the 16-acre complex on the west side of lower Manhattan.Schwartz joined him the following year as the head of security at 7 World Trade Center, the building that replaced the one he worked in as a Secret Service agent.Every day, Vinci and Schwartz walk past the site of the 9/11 Memorial, with its cascading waterfalls that spill into two reflecting pools, contained by panels inscribed with the names of every person who was killed in the terror attacks that day.Although both men said that they still avoid watching news reports that trigger memories of the attacks, they said they never hesitated to accept jobs at the new World Trade Center.“It’s nice to be part of this, coming back to what it should have been,” said Vinci. “I’m certainly nobody special. I tried to help — coming back is a continuation of trying to help people know that it didn’t stop because of [the attacks].”“The brave people, their names are over there,” he added, gesturing to the names of first responders etched into the memorial.One of those names is Craig Miller, the only Secret Service agent to die in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.Although based in Washington D.C. at the time, Miller, who was 29, had taken a last-minute assignment in New York City. It is believed that the military veteran rushed towards the towers to provide aid to victims before they collapsed. His remains were not identified until 2014.“It was very hard because [he] is one of us and could have been any one of us, even though I didn’t know him personally,” said Schwartz. “We got to meet the family over the years through the events and fundraisers and stuff, so it definitely made it personal for all of us on the job.”Both Schwartz and Vinci said that while returning to the site evokes some painful memories for them, they’re honored to lead the charge in keeping the new, transformed World Trade Center safe.“I saw a lot of very horrific things take place on that morning, and then to come back this many years later … it’s very serene and it’s very calming,” said Schwartz.“It’s almost like coming home.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
