RSF’s denounces Singapore’s disregard of press freedom ahead of its Universal Periodic Review

first_imgNews A request by the New Naratif website to be registered as Singaporean company was rejected outright by the authorities in 2018. December 6, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has sent its evaluation of the current situation in Singapore to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva ahead of Singapore’s next Universal Periodic Review (UPR) by the council’s other members in May. RSF’s evaluation deplores the Singaporean government’s complete disregard for the basic principles of press freedom. SingaporeAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesReports and statisticsMedia independence United Nations The government also arbitrarily decides whether a foreign media outlet may or may not be distributed within the city-state. Under several laws, including the sedition law and criminal code articles, publishing information that, for example, “promotes feelings of ill-will and hostility” within the population is punishable by imprisonment. The wording of these laws gives judges considerable leeway and, as a result, fosters a great deal of self-censorship within the news media. SingaporeAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesReports and statisticsMedia independence United Nations News Five years later, the situation is even worse, notably as a result of the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA), which took effect in October 2019. Also known as the “anti-fake news” law, it grants every member of the government the right to “correct,” delete or block access to any online content in order to “prevent a diminution of public confidence in (…) the government.” The blogger Leong Sze Hian, for example, continues to face the possibility of a two-year prison sentence in a criminal defamation case brought by the prime minister just because he shared an article from the Malaysian website TheCoverage.my on Facebook in November 2018. Coronavirus: State measures must not allow surveillance of journalists and their sources Bastard added: “Singapore boasts of being an economic development model but, as regards the freedom to inform, it is a model of what not to be. Democracies should not tolerate this state of affairs.” Receive email alerts RSF_en A handful of news sites and blogs try to provide Singaporeans with reliable and independently reported information but those who run them are often the victims of judicial harassment by the government. April 10, 2020 Find out more Never out of power since the city-state’s independence in 1965, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s People’s Action Party has passed legislation that allows the government to oversee the appointment of those who run the leading media outlets, including their editors and the members of their boards of governors.

News Help by sharing this information The government rarely has to carry out the threat of judicial harassment against journalists working for any of the country’s mainstream media, whether print, broadcasting or online media, because they either belong to the MediaCorp group, which is owned by a state investment company, or they are owned by Singapore Press Holdings, whose bosses are appointed by the ministry of communications and information. Organisation After falling seven places in the space of a year, Singapore is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index and is now coloured black on the RSF press freedom map because the situation is classified as “very bad.” Related documents RSF’s evaluation ahead of Singapore’s 2021 Universal Periodic ReviewPDF – 185.24 KB Singaporean website prosecuted over election coverage The city-state’s authorities accepted 117 recommendations at the end of the council’s last UPR of the situation in Singapore in 2016. Absolutely none of them concerned press freedom although several member states had urged Singapore to amend laws criminalizing defamation, end media censorship by the state apparatus and allow the emergence of independent media not held back by self-censorship. Bad model “We urge the representatives of Human Rights Council member countries to challenge Singapore’s representatives about their complete disregard for the basic principles of press freedom,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “It is unacceptable for a member state to refuse to discuss this absolutely central issue with its peers, no matter how briefly.” to go further October 2, 2020 Find out more October 15, 2020 – Updated on October 19, 2020 RSF’s denounces Singapore’s disregard of press freedom ahead of its Universal Periodic Review Judicial harassmentlast_img read more

Europa:Solskjaer lauds Ighalo, teammates’ five-star display against LASK

first_img During post-match interviews with MUTV and BT Sport, the United boss reflected on an excellent performance against LASK as the Reds ran out 5-0 winners in a game which was played behind closed doors due to coronavirus. This is what he had to say… “You can say it was a professional but it was also a very good job. It wasn’t just being professional and efficient though, there were some quality football and quality finishes, some great build-up play and great through passes, runs and movements, I think we got more or less everything we asked from the boys. The whole 90 minutes from the whole team was excellent.” “You can look at all of them and say they’re high quality. The first one for Odion [Ighalo], who had some great touches and it was very nice to see Dan [James] back on form and confident. With Juan [Mata]’s goal, what a pass [from Fred] and Juan is composed. Then you have Mason [Greenwood], that’s just what he does, absolute quality. The keeper didn’t give him a lot to aim for so he had to go through both of the posts and I’m very happy for Andy [Pereira] to finish it off. Every goal was high quality and we should have had more.” “It’s great of course. We’re human beings and footballers with confidence will play and perform better than footballers without confidence, and we’ve got so many players with confidence because they’re doing well. They deserve to be confident and it’s harder and harder to pick an XI. We made a few changes today and some of the players really grabbed their opportunity and put pressure on the ones who have been playing most of the minutes.” “It’s the business end of the season and what was pleasing today was it was different circumstances. It was a weird atmosphere and the boys were so focused and created their own atmosphere in the game and I think the camaraderie and the team spirit was there to see. It’s not to recommend [football behind closed doors] but I have to praise the boys because they did fantastic.” ANOTHER CLEAN SHEET: “In the second half, they had a couple of dangerous moments but we had some great blocks. In the first half as well, they had one chance but it was a great block by Eric [Bailly] so, of course, it’s not just the attackers that did well, I think the back four, with Sergio [Romero] back there guiding them, all did well.” POGBA’S FUTURE?: “Paul’s our player. He has two years left on his contract. A year plus the option of another. You can expect Paul to be here [next season], yeah.” Read Also:Photo: Man Utd stars watch replay Ighalo’s goal on pitch-side monitor AN 11-MATCH UNBEATEN RUN: “It’s fantastic but we need to keep going. It’s a big game on Sunday, Tottenham away. It’s part of the reason we made a couple of changes. Changes are part of being a Man United player, you don’t play every game but you’re happy at the end if you win trophies. It’s not just about playing, it’s about winning and helping the team. If you play for 60, 70, 80 or 10 minutes you should be proud and have confidence.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, was delighted with the professionalism and quality produced by his players under strange circumstances in Austria during the first leg of our Europa League last-16 tie.
