Coronavirus infects press freedom in Africa August 25, 2016 Zambia: RSF decries sudden closure of three broadcast media March 29, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Zambia IBA employees and police raided Muvi TV’s studios on the evening of 22 August, evicted its personnel, seized its transmitter and sealed off access to the building. Komboni Radio and Radio Itezhi Tezhi then suffered the same fate. The closures come amid a tense climate for journalists since President Edgar Lungu’s reelection on 11 August – a victory that has been disputed by the opposition in street protests. At a news conference, IBA chairman Justin Mutale said that “before, during and after the 11 August 2016 elections” the tree media outlets had been “conducting themselves in an unprofessional manner” and had thereby posed a “risk to national peace and stability.” He did not elaborate. The legal basis for the closures is an article in the IBA Amendment Act that empowers the IBA to withdraw a broadcasting licence if it is “necessary in the interest of public safety, security, peace, welfare or good order.” “The Zambian government clearly wanted to silence these independent media and used the cover of a supposedly independent authority,” RSF said. “Regardless of the criticisms that can be levelled against the three media outlets, shutting them down without warning is completely disproportionate. We call for their licences to be restored at once.” Hellen Mwale, the head of the Media Institute of Southern African’s local branch, MISA-Zambia, described Muvi TV’s coverage of the presidential election as “fair and balanced” in comparison with other media. Muvi TV’s lawyer, Milner Kakubo, announced that the TV station will appeal against the closure. A hearing with the IBA has already been set for 14 September. Zambia is ranked 114th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

A Single Bench of Justice Ajay Bhanot has elucidated the type of materials that may be considered by such authority, the standard of proof, and other aggravating/ mitigating factors for the purpose. The Bench has also made it clear that such inquiry is different from a trial/civil proceeding before a Court of law and hence, competent authority is not always bound by the findings of the court, nor is it invariably constrained by the opinion of the investigation officer. The order comes in a writ petition filed by one Sanny Kumar, aggrieved by an order passed by the Superintendent of Police, Jalaun, cancelling his selection as Constable in the UP Police, in the backdrop of several criminal cases pending against him. Arguments The Petitioner submitted that he had truthfully declared details of all the criminal cases pending against him in the affidavit of verification. He argued that he has not been chargesheeted in two cases, one of which he said is an offshoot of a matrimonial dispute of his brother. He further submitted that he was acquitted in one criminal case and in the absence of conviction by a court, appointment cannot be refused. The Standing Counsel for the State of UP on the other hand submitted that the Petitioner was named in multiple criminal cases. He was not acquitted honourably by the trial court in the first case. He was named in the FIR lodged in the other cases including one for an act of moral turpitude. It was submitted that the fact that the Investigation Officer did not chargesheet the Petitioner does not exonerate him, particularly, when trials are on foot. Findings At the outset, the Bench observed that the Police is a “disciplined force” which is charged with the duty to uphold the law and order in the State. Thus, personnel in uniform belonging to disciplined forces, are expected to bear impeccable character and possess unimpeachable integrity. In this backdrop, it observed that it is essential to examine the suitability of candidates for appointment. An important factor for determination of such suitability is the role of “Criminal Antecedents”. Nature of the proceeding/Scope of Enquiry into suitability for appointment “Determination of suitability of a candidate for appointment is an administrative decision which is part of the recruitment process. The process of evaluating suitability for appointment is not an adjudication of guilt or innocence as in a criminal case. Nor is it a quasi judicial process or a civil law proceeding.” Material for consideration by the authority The Bench observed that the material available before an authority to determine the suitability of a candidate may be either reliable and conclusive, or credible but probative. However, both kinds of material are liable to be considered. The Bench categorically held that material of probative value but credible worth is not to be discarded, and there is no impediment in its consideration. “One such source is the record of criminal proceedings against the candidate. The full inventory of material before the authority includes the F.I.R., the evidence collected during the criminal investigation, chargesheet submitted in court, evidence emerging during the trial, the judgment rendered by a court of law. On the foot of such material, the competent authority can make its decision on the fitness of the candidate for appointment,” it observed in the facts of the case. Method of Evaluation of Material/ applicability of Standards of evidence The High Court has held that a competent authority is not always bound by the findings of the court, nor is it invariably constrained by the opinion of the investigation officer. The reason for the same is as follows: Criminal prosecution of an individual before the court of law is to bring an offender of criminal laws to justice, and to punish the guilty. The object of the competent authority in a recruitment process is only to determine the suitability of a candidate to hold a public post. The order states, “The purposes of a criminal investigation, criminal trial, civil proceeding, departmental enquiry, are distinct from the rationale behind the exercise of verification of criminal antecedents of a candidate for appointment in a recruitment process. The nature of rights engaged in the respective proceedings are also different. The lattermost proceeding is an executive function, while former proceedings are judicial and quasi judicial in nature respectively.” The Bench has also held that strict rules of evidence, i.e. proof of guilt of the accused beyond reasonable doubt, apply to criminal prosecution. The competent authority on the contrary is not constrained by any such standard of evidence. It added that the rights of a government employee facing departmental proceedings are also significantly different from a candidate who is participating in a selection process. Thus, the evidentiary standard of preponderance of probability is not applicable to the proceedings which consider the suitability of a candidate before making the appointment. “Acquittal by the criminal court happens when evidence is not sufficient to sustain a conviction. Failure to prove an offence before a court of law in a 12 criminal trial may not reduce the probative value of said evidence before the competent authority in a recruitment process. Such evidence when placed before the competent authority may constitute credible material of probative value to render a candidate unsuitable for appointment. The scope of discretion of the competent authority will also depend on the nature of findings of the court on the same evidence,” the order stated. This also implies that an acquittal in a criminal trial simplicitor will not lead to an automatic discharge in departmental proceedings [RP Kapur v. Union of India]. Procedure for enquiry The Bench cautiously added that the conclusion of the competent authority is an estimation at best. Thus, it is the duty of an employer to evaluate the suitability of a candidate for appointment, paired with the right of the candidate for a fair consideration of his credentials. Towards this end, the employer may allow a candidate to present material in his defence. “The candidate can tender his defence to refute the aforesaid material and point out mitigating circumstances in his favour in the proceeding. When need arises fair and an impartial opportunity of hearing may be given to such candidate,” the Bench observed. Line of Enquiry- Aggravating Factors While the standards of proof that are applicable in judicial proceedings are not applicable in the suitability test, the Bench observed that the competent authority should see that the material in the record strongly supports the inference of criminal traits, or a tendency of involvement in criminal offences, or to directly engage in criminal acts or vice and violence in the conduct, while rejecting a candidature. It observed, “Regard has to be paid by the competent authority to the gravity and heinous nature of offences or offences involving moral turpitude. Such cases may dissuade the competent from approving the candidate for appointment. Multiplicity of criminal prosecutions is also a factor while considering the suitability of a candidate. Repetitive criminal acts may reinforce the inference of criminal traits or vice and violence in a candidate.” Line of Enquiry – Mitigating Factors As stated above, the line of enquiry shall extend to the consideration of mitigating factors in each case. The Bench observed, “Indiscretions of youth, and fallibility of human nature have to be accorded full weight. Fallibility of human nature is distinct from criminal traits in character. Depraved conduct is not youthful indiscretion. Trivial offences may often occur by human error and not perpetrated by a criminal mindset. Trivial offences may not invite invalidation of candidate. The competent authority has to determine where the threshold lies and draw the line in light of facts of each case.” The Bench also cautioned the competent authority to not neglect the “realities of social life” where filing of malicious cases and judicial delay is very much alive. It observed, “The practice of falsely framing young members of a family in trivial offences especially in villages is not uncommon. Prosecution in these offences is easily initiated and cases remain pending indefinitely…The employer has to be alert to these realities and factor them in the decision in the facts of a case.” On the merits of the instant case, the Bench observed that the impugned order need not be interfered with for the following reasons: There is no procedural impropriety committed by the authority while passing the impugned order.The procedure adopted by the competent authority while passing the impugned order is compliant with principles of natural justice.The petitioner was not acquitted honourably by the trial court in the first case.the case was not an isolated one. The petitioner was an accused in the FIR in a grave offence involving moral turpitude and the trial is underway.Allegations of sexual offences against children are most serious and cannot be lightly dismissed by any employer. These facts are liable to be factored in the decision and were legitimately considered in the impugned order. Case Title: Sanny Kumar v. State of UP & Ors.

Technology in the recruiting and hiring process

Technology has changed the recruiting and hiring process tremendously.  For the most part, the days of leaving voicemail after voicemail and trying to coordinate interviews around a lunch schedule have been left behind.  Advancements in technology have changed the way companies find and communicate with potential candidates.We are being introduced to a generation of candidates that can’t even imagine the traditional interviewing process.  Come in and meet with you face to face?  Why?  Fill out a paper application?  Really?A digital recruiting plan can be an easier and better way to build incredible staffs at a much faster rate.  It is a much more beneficial way to be able to recruit quality candidates in areas where we may not be able to realistically conduct face-to-face interviews.How does it benefit the company and how can it make the hiring process easier and better?  Imagine the benefit of having a candidate conducting a single digital video interview with multiple managers simultaneously instead of having to coordinate schedules for all those managers and candidates.  In one afternoon, you could knock out several candidate interviews and move everyone on to the next step in the hiring process. continue reading » 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr read more

GambleAware defends RET funding structures following Lords criticism

first_imgShare Share GambleAware: Engage those with lived experience of gambling harms August 28, 2020 Submit Marc Etches to step down as CEO of GambleAware in 2021 August 14, 2020 Related Articles YGAM focuses on BAME community engagement with CVR link-up August 21, 2020 GambleAware has defended its position on the funding of problem gambling research education and treatment (RET) programmes, following last week’s publication of the House of Lords’ Select Committee ‘Time for Action’ report on UK gambling. Citing 66 recommendations, the Lords report stated that GambleAware must correct its current ‘anomalous system’ of funding RET directives so that further charities are free to raise money from other sources without ‘imperilling their current funding’ structures.In its statement, the House Lords underlined previous concerns by UK public health stakeholders, which stated that RET directives could be obstructed by a lack of independence on funding.Responding to the Select Committee’s concerns, GambleAware CEO Marc Etches emphasised that all ‘treatment providers’ sanctioned by the charity were ‘entirely free to raise funds for whatever purpose they deem appropriate’.  GambleAware stated that it holds no influence on how RET partners handle their accounts and how they access funding beyond its central contributions.In his statement, Etches detailed that GambleAware Trustees held only one caveat with regards to RET partner funding, stipulated against ‘duplicate funding’ – ‘treatment providers should not seek to get paid twice over for the same activity’.Etches addressed concerns over potential structural problems with regards to new RET activities securing access to funding from different sources. Clarifying his position, Etches underlined that GambleAware Trustees supported an accessible system that welcomed all worthwhile directives ‘regardless of whether funded by itself or by a third party’. GambleAware actively supports innovation and collaboration between organisations, in which all funding contributions have been submitted to the House of Commons DCMS Select Committee.

Allardyce set for axe as Everton manager

first_imgAllardyce’s rudimentary style of play has proved deeply unpopular despite lifting the Toffees from 13th in the Premier League when he was appointed in November to finish eighth.Despite signing an 18-month deal, Allardyce seemed resigned to his fate after Sunday’s 3-1 defeat at former club West Ham, during which Everton supporters called for his sacking.“I can’t quite say confident after all the rumours I’m reading in the paper,” said Allardyce. “Generally there’s no smoke without fire. We’ll wait and see when we meet up.”Allardyce was hired after a dismal start to the season under Ronald Koeman saw Everton fearing a relegation battle.Former Watford and Hull City manager Marco Silva is the favourite to take over and could complete the move to Goodison Park six months after the club failed to prise him away from Vicarage Road.Everton were unwilling to pay a reported compensation fee of £15 million ($20 million) wanted by Watford for the Portuguese when Koeman was sacked.However, Silva himself was then dismissed by Watford in January with the Hornets citing disruption caused by Everton’s “unwarranted approach” for a major dip in form.A change in manager could also affect Wayne Rooney’s future at the club.England’s all-time top scorer had reportedly agreed terms on a £12.5 million move to DC United in Major League Soccer last week.Rooney had seen his involvement limited under Allardyce, but could be convinced to stay at his boyhood club by a new regime.Last month, Allardyce dismissed a survey sent to fans asking them to grade his performance out of 10 as a mistake on the part of the club’s marketing director, who he said does not “understand” how football works.As part of the questionnaire, supporters were asked whether they agree with the statement of “I have a high level of trust in the current manager and coaching staff at Everton e.g. in making the right decisions to get the best out of the team.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sam Allardyce is set to be sacked as Everton manager © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, May 15 – Sam Allardyce’s reign as Everton manager is set to end after less than six months in charge at Goodison Park, according to widespread reports in England on Tuesday.Sky Sports reported the 63-year-old will be informed at a meeting with majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri as early as Wednesday that his services are no longer required as Moshiri reacts to fans’ growing discontent with the former England manager.last_img read more

Waiting for a price rally limits the potential for a rally

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Citi Bank indicated that the Chinese economic slowdown will likely continue to burden world markets, which could eventually leading to a global recession. They lowered their world growth forecast from 2.4% to 1.6%. This might mean that crude oil prices will not likely rally, which would keep ethanol and corn prices in check.At a recent conference, the USDA’s chief economist echoed the bank’s statements and pointed out the world’s oversupply of grain. He went on to estimate corn acres will increase by 2 million acres (near market expectations), with prices continuing to trade around $3.45. One positive note, 2016 soybean acre projections weren’t increased and cash prices are expected to be around $8.50.Farmers constantly ask what I think prices will do. Until we see what the weather is like, I expect corn prices to stay about the same level they are today. There is too much old crop sitting in bins and farmers are delivering on “price-later” contracts, which means many end users aren’t hungry for grain. Most of these farmers are waiting for a rally to price grain, and set their price, which is limiting the potential for a rally.Beans are nearing a technical point that indicates a potential move up or down. Unfortunately, nobody agrees on which way it will move. There is nothing fundamentally bullish about bean prices, but that doesn’t mean it has to break lower either.Funds have a big short position on in corn and beans. If they would start to buy, maybe we see a rally, but it could be limited as so much grain still needs to be priced. Have you written out your marketing plan for 2016? You won’t have time once planting starts, so now that taxes are over, take a little time to write something down. Months from now you’ll be glad you did.Jon grew up raising corn and soybeans on a farm near Beatrice, NE. Upon graduation from The University of Nebraska in Lincoln, he became a grain merchandiser and has been trading corn, soybeans and other grains for the last 18 years, building relationships with end-users in the process. After successfully marketing his father’s grain and getting his MBA, 10 years ago he started helping farmer clients market their grain based upon his principals of farmer education, reducing risk, understanding storage potential and using basis strategy to maximize individual farm operation profits. A big believer in farmer education of futures trading, Jon writes a weekly commentary to farmers interested in learning more and growing their farm operations.Trading of futures, options, swaps and other derivatives is risky and is not suitable for all persons.
