first_img News January 12, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist gunned down on resort island by two men on motorcycle Organisation Follow the news on Thailand RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is shocked to learn that Wisut “Ae Inside” Tangwittayaporn, a freelance journalist and member of the “Red Shirts” political movement, was gunned down by two men on a motorcycle today in the southwestern resort island of Phuket.“Wisut Tangwittayaporn’s family has our entire solidarity,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must carry out a thorough investigation into this murder, without ruling out the possibility that it was linked to his work as a journalist.”Wisut was driving in his car with his wife on the outskirts of Phuket city when two men on a motorcycle cut in front of him and one of them opened fire, hitting Wisut four times in the head, neck and shoulder. Doctors said that one of the bullets severed his carotid artery and that he died from loss of blood.The Phuket News, a local online newspaper, quoted the police as saying the grouping of the shots suggested that the murder was carried out by professional killers and that his coverage of land disputes or other stories may have been the motive. The newspaper also reported the Wisut was the leader of a group opposed to the private use of a Phuket beach and had many enemies.Murders of journalists are very rare in Thailand, where online censorship and prosecutions for violating article 112 of the criminal code (on lèse-majesté) are the most common media freedom violations. Since last October, Reporters Without Borders was been waging a campaign to inform tourists visiting Thailand about the press freedom situation there.

The organisation is launching a petition today for the dismissal of the case and the immediate release of the 11 defendants already held provisionally for months.

They are facing up to 43 years in prison. Ironically, the day the trial starts is celebrated as National Press Day in Turkey.An international RSF delegation, including RSF’s Turkey representative, Erol Önderoğlu, will attend the first hearing. They will also take part in a demonstration outside the law courts in the Istanbul district of Çağlayan at 9 am, before the start of the trial, together with many other observers.RSF will step up its campaigning throughout the week, releasing videos of well-known international media figures supporting Cumhuriyet. Members of the European Parliament will also participate, continuing a campaign launched in the spring. The French street artist C215, who has been joining in RSF activities in support of Turkey’s imprisoned journalists, will go into action again in Paris on 24 July.“It’s journalism in Turkey, not just Cumhuriyet, that is being put on trial,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Journalists are yet again being treated as terrorists just for doing their job. We have had enough of these mass trials, crazy charges and arbitrary detentions that are tragedies for the victims. We call for the broadest possible campaign to tell the Turkish authorities they cannot continue to crush press freedom and the rule of law.”Journalism treated as a crime The prosecution claims that Cumhuriyet criticized the authorities in its articles in order to better “defend” three “terrorist” organizations – the Gülen Movement (which is said to have masterminded the July 2016 coup attempt), the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and DHKP/C, a small far-left group.In fact the newspaper has been tireless in its criticism of all three organizations, whose ideologies are very disparate. The indictment is based above all on criticism of the government that the defendants expressed in in articles, tweets and statements.Awarded the RSF Press Freedom Prize in 2015, Cumhuriyet is one of Turkey’s oldest newspapers and is now one the few remaining independent outlets in a media landscape that has been devastated by the government’s crackdown.Cumhuriyet has criticized President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s growing authoritarianism and has been responsible for many revelations that embarrassed the government. Its revelations about Turkish arms deliveries to Jihadi groups in Syria led to the arrests of then editor Can Dündar and Ankara bureau chief Erdem Gül in 2015.11 journalists held arbitrarilyTen members of the newspaper’s staff, including editor Murat Sabuncu, columnist Kadri Gürsel, cartoonist Musa Kart and administrator Bülent Utku, were arrested on 31 October 2016. The United Nations has called for their immediate release, describing their detention as arbitrary. Investigative reporter Ahmet Şık joined them in prison in late December.All requests for the release of these journalists have so far been systematically rejected. In the absence of any response from Turkey’s constitutional court, their lawyers have turned to the European Court of Human Rights.RSF organized a demonstration outside the Strasbourg-based court on 29 May to press it to rule as quickly as possible on their cases and the cases of other imprisoned Turkish journalists.The six defendants who are not detained include the columnist Aydın Engin, the newspaper’s fiscal affairs director, Günseli Özaltay, and former editor Can Dündar, who fled the country and now lives in Germany.Turkey is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. The situation of its media was already worrying but has become critical under the state of emergency proclaimed after the July 2016 coup attempt. Around 150 media outlets have been closed, mass trials are being held and more than 100 journalists are currently in prison – a world record.Read the report that RSF published on 13 July, one year after the coup attempt.

Photo: Cian ReinhardtSOCIAL Democrats councillor Elisa O’Donovan has called on the local authority to explore the provision of free sanitary products in all Limerick Council buildings, including community centres, swimming pools and libraries.At Monday’s meeting of the local authority, the City West representative said that women have an average of 507 periods in their menstrual lifetime at a cost of around €10,000 per person.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr O’Donovan also explained that 50 per cent of menstruating people aged 12 to 19 say they have experienced issues in paying for sanitary products.“The monthly burden of purchasing sanitary products falls on half of the Limerick population and is an issue of both equality and dignity. It is easy to understand why period poverty is a very real problem issue for low-income households and young people in our city and county,” she commented.“I am calling on Limerick Council to provide a range of free, adequate, safe and suitable sanitary products to be distributed through all public buildings. To start off with this would be in Council-owned buildings, swimming pools, libraries and community centres so as to tackle period poverty and de-stigmatise and normalise menstruation. I urge that we undergo a pilot project for this to start on International Women’s Day next year.”Sinn Féin councillor Sharon Benson, who supported the motion, called for an amendment to be made to include emergency accommodation and homeless shelters.Labour Party councillor Conor Sheehan pointed out that Limerick TD Jan O’Sullivan has done a lot of work on this issue at national level.Fianna Fáil councillor Eddie Ryan wanted to know how the proposal would be funded.“We’ve already had our budget,” he pointed out.Cllr Kevin Sheahan (FF) was also keen to comment on the matter.“I have no problem with this. It shows a maturing process to be thinking this way. I welcome that,” he said.A Council spokesman explained that the issue of the provision of free sanitary products in public buildings was debated in the Oireachtas earlier this year when the Government committed to bringing forward a series of measures to address the matter.“The Council will proceed with implementing the outcome of this process upon its completion at national level,” he said.
