Journalist given two-month suspended sentence for defamation

first_img February 18, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist given two-month suspended sentence for defamation Reporters Without Borders expressed its indignation after Ljubica Letinic, a journalist on Croatian state television and radio (RTC) and correspondent for the worldwide press freedom organisation, was given a two-month suspended prison sentence.The sentence, confirmed on 10 February 2005 by the supreme court in the southern city of Split ran “contrary to international standards” the organisation said.”This sentence highlights unacceptable legislation that allows a journalist to be given a prison term for a press offence, at a time when Croatia is due to open membership talks with the EU on 17 March this year.”If Zagreb wants to join the European Union in 2007, Croatian journalists should no longer be at risk of being imprisoned simply for doing their job,” it said.The case goes back to 18 March 20002 when Letinic produced a six-minute report, broadcast on the talk show “Latinica” on RTC, in which she alleged corruption against a number of well known figures in Split. These included the city mayor and businessman Jozo Parcina, who reportedly obtained luxury apartments belonging to the local council.

The organisation said the judgement ran contrary to international standards and it questioned the suitability for EU membership in 2007 of a country that imposes prison sentences for press offences. The Split municipal court gave Letinic a two-month suspended prison sentence for defamation of Parcina on 12 July 2004 and she subsequently lodged an appeal.”I thought the sentence would be upheld on appeal because the municipal court in Split is really problematical. The corruption that I raised in my report also involved the Split municipal court” she told Reporters Without Borders after the appeal verdict.A journalist with the weekly Feral Tribune, Vladimir Matijanic, was given a suspended three-month prison sentence by the Split municipal court, on 11 November 2004, for defaming footballer Igor Stimac, suspected of involvement in criminal activities.Croatian law currently allows prison sentences of up to one year for defamation. Article 309 allows a sentence of three years in prison for all insults or criticism that hinder the work of a judge or prosecutor. center_img Help by sharing this information December 2, 2020 Find out more News CroatiaEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts CroatiaEurope – Central Asia Organisation News to go further RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive last_img read more

The international press freedom organisation has made it clear it is depending on the French president to use his visit to China to promote freedom of expression. Huang Jinqiu, a regular contributor to the website Boxun, was arrested on 13 September 2003 in Lianyungang, Jiangsu province in the east of the country. His family had no news of him for several months and only learned in January 2004 that he was being held in Changzhou jail.

It was while continuing his journalism studies in Malaysia that he became well known for his uncompromising political articles carried by Boxun, under the pseudonym of Qing Shuijun.The Chinese authorities began to keep a closer eye on the cyberdissident’s activities since, in January 2003, he announced he intended to found a political party, the China Patriotic Democratic Party (CPDP).

About BELLUS Health ( BELLUS Health is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing novel therapeutics for the treatment of chronic cough and other hypersensitization-related disorders. The Company’s product candidate, BLU-5937, is being developed for the treatment of chronic cough and chronic pruritus. Chronic cough, the lead indication for BLU-5937, is a cough lasting more than eight weeks and is associated with significant adverse physical, social and psychosocial effects on health and quality of life. It is estimated that approximately 26 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic cough with approximately 3 million having refractory chronic cough lasting for more than a year and approximately 6 million having refractory chronic cough lasting more than 8 weeks and under one year. There is no specific therapy approved for refractory chronic cough and current treatment options are limited. Chronic pruritus, the second indication for BLU-5937, is commonly known as chronic itch and is an irritating sensation that leads to scratching and persists for longer than six weeks, which can be debilitating and can significantly impact quality of life. It is a hallmark of many inflammatory skin diseases, including atopic dermatitis (“AD”). It is estimated that AD afflicts approximately 5% of adults in the United States. Despite currently available treatments targeting AD, there continues to be a lack of options targeting the burden of pruritus in AD patients.

Evolving Foreclosure Litigation Strategy

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Florida courts have recently clarified that, where a complaint is dismissed without prejudice and the dismissal does not operate as an adjudication on the merits, plaintiff may not have to send a new breach letter prior to instituting a subsequent action to foreclose the mortgage.Foreclosure can be a complex legal area because of the nuance involved in the practice. Strategic decisions need to be made to minimize cost and exposure. A great counselor steps in the shoes of the opposing attorney, analyzing the case from both sides and always staying a chess move ahead. Such strategies can be simple as proactively seeking additional relief in orders, how you conduct motion practice, or dropping certain parties that will delay the cases if deficiency is not an option.The case law surrounding how a plaintiff can limit its exposure to attorney’s fees liability is growing. Decisions about whether to voluntarily dismiss a claim or ask that it be dismissed without prejudice can be important. In HSBC Bank USA v. Leone, 2019 Fla. App. LEXIS 6753, 2019 WL 1967650, No. 2D17-2851 (Fla. 2d DCA May 3, 2019), plaintiff appealed an involuntary dismissal of its foreclosure case. Plaintiff had filed a second foreclosure case after the first was dismissed without prejudice. The trial court dismissed the claim on the basis that no new notice of default was sent. The trial court found that a “new default notice was required to be mailed prior to filing the second foreclosure action.” The court’s order was appealed and the appellate court reversed.The Second District Court of Appeal provided that the issue was one of contract interpretation, specifically, one must look to the plain meaning of the mortgage. Analyzing paragraph twenty-two (22) of the standard form mortgage, the court looked to the phrase “on or before the date specified in the notice.” The court discounted the position that cases questioning the application of the statute of limitations would require that a second notice be sent.Where a foreclosure case had been dismissed without prejudice and a subsequent complaint to enforce the note and foreclose the mortgage has been filed, there is no need to send a new breach letter prior to filing if the default was never cured. However, in the event that the dismissal was with prejudice, a new notice may be required.

He was willing to take a cargo flight as well since movement around the country is restricted. He sought directions to concerned authorities to allow him to take a cargo flight or make any other arrangement for his travel to Assam.Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh appeared for the Union of India and submitted that it is not only the case of the petitioner but there are several other persons who have passed away, some after being afflicted by Covid- 19 and some for other reasons, but in no case would passengers be permitted on flights in view of the specific directions of the Union of India and the Order issued by the Director General of Civil Aviation. Only flights specified in the Order of DGCA dated March 23, 2020 are permitted. Furthermore, ASG contended that the petitioner’s request cannot be accommodated within the permissible flights detailed in the said order and no exception can be made in his case. However, if the petitioner is desirous of travelling by road, the Union of India will permit passage by road if the petitioner so desires. He further submits that the necessary instructions will be given to the Pune Collectorate and necessary steps thereafter be taken to facilitate the petitioner’s travel by road.Court accepted ASG Singh’s statement and thereafter directed the petitioner to apply for permission to appropriate authorities specified by the Union of India once he decides to travel by road and also inform the authorities about the route he intends to take to reach Lanka, Assam so that the authorities would be aware of the various entry and exit points in different states through which the petitioner would pass.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
