British & Irish Lions thrash the Golden Lions in Johannesburg

first_imgWednesday Jun 3, 2009 British & Irish Lions thrash the Golden Lions in Johannesburg The British and Irish Lions ran riot at Ellis Park earlier tonight as they romped to a 74-10 victory over the Golden Lions in Johannesburg.Scoring 10 tries and looking a far improved unit from the side that struggled to beat the Royal XV last weekend, the British & Irish Lions found plenty of gaps in the home sides lacklustre defence.Looking uninspired and generally disappointing, the Golden Lions simply didnt turn up, looking disorganised and leaderless. Perhaps thats not surprising following coach Loffie Eloff being sacked just last week.It was a case of how good were the visitors, or how bad were the home side? Probably a combination of both, as the men in red hit their straps with the center pairing of Brian ODriscoll and Jamie Roberts looking like a serious contender for Test honours.Roberts, Tommy Bowe, and Ugo Monye all claimed two tries a piece, while captain ODriscoll, Tom Croft, James Hook, and Stephen Ferris all crossed the tryline.Stephen Jones kicked 18 points, with substitute Hook coming on and kicking three late conversions, resulting in a record win over the Johannesburg based side.

Ruling on COOL Expected this Summer

The hearing on the U.S. appeal is complete. An Alberta pork producer believes the Government of Canada team effectively argued that the law is a protectionist measure. Andrew Dickson – Manitoba Pork Council General Manager – says it was also effectively argued that COOL labeling requirements have seriously harmed and continue to harm Canadian exports of cattle and hogs to the U.S. The Appellate Body must now consider the record evidence and arguments – with its conclusion expected toward the end of June.Source: NAFB News Service By Andy Eubank – May 6, 2012 last_img read more

The press victim of tensions between the two countries

first_img Organisation Receive email alerts MyanmarAsia – Pacific May 31, 2021 Find out more July 17, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 The press victim of tensions between the two countries On 29 July, the Burmese military government issued a list of at least thirteen Thai journalists who are barred from entering the country. This order, sent to Burmese embassies around the world, states that the journalists are to be arrested if they attempt to enter the country using false identities. They are: Suvit Wat, Supaluk Kanchana Khundee, Ubon Rittular Anfong, Kavi Chongkittavorn, Thepchai Yong, Tairai Sunthon Prahart, Anchalee Phatrak, Fonkhon Adonyanon, Dr. Chanvit Kasit, Lomoliam Ynic, Lomta Larynhit, Nainmaha Saitthai, and Sailop Phubua.________________________________________________________ Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières – RSF) and the Burma Media Association (BMA, the organisation of Burmese journalists in exile) strongly condemned the recent obstacles to press freedom by the Burmese and Thai governments, particularly in the frontier zone between the two countries. “Once again Burmese and Thai journalists are victims of the tensions between their respective governments”, declared Robert Ménard, General Secretary of RSF. The two organisations have asked the Thai and Burmese Interior Ministers, Purachai Piumsombun and Colonel Tin Hlaing, to ensure that the restrictions on journalists’ work be removed at soon as possible.The first obstacle came from Thailand, which, on 28 June 2002, declared personas non grata in its territory two Burmese journalists: Maung Maung, chief editor of the official daily The New Light of Myanmar and Ma Tin Win, author of a series of articles on the Thai monarchy deemed to be ‘insulting’.On 12 July, it was Burma’s turn to blacklist the names of fifteen Thai journalists accused of propaganda against the Burmese military junta. These reporters were not quoted by name but Kyaw Win, deputy chief of military intelligence, said they belong to the newspapers The Nation, Bangkok Post, Thai Rath, Thai News, Daily News, Siam Rath, Matichon, Khao Sod and to a radio station.On 16 July, the Thai National Security Council banned foreign journalists from entering the refugee camps along the Burma-Thai border. The authorities invoked critical articles on how the camps are run. They also criticise the press for fostering tensions between the two countries by reporting on the refugees’ criticisms of the Burmese junta. The Bangkok government has however denied that this measure is aimed at calming its relations with Burma. Lastly, in Thailand once more, Khin Maung Soe, a reporter at Radio Free Asia, was interrogated at the end of June by the police in the frontier zone while he was investigating a rape committed by Thai policemen on a Burmese refugee.

One of the newspaper’s employers present at the seizure was threatened. The same soldiers detained and interrogated the local distributor for three days before releasing him on 24 April. As a result of these threats, the person in charge of distributing Al Wassat in the west of the country has told the newspaper’s management he cannot continue.“Censoring media outlets and intimidating their employees is unacceptable,” said Yasmine Kacha, the head of RSF’s North Africa desk. “The restoration of peace in Libya requires respect for media freedom. Journalists have a key role to play today in Libya. It is vital and urgent that they should be allowed to work freely.”Although a new, UN-backed Government of National Accord was installed in Tripoli on 30 March, the media continue to be subject to a great deal of harassment. In a press release on 31 March, RSF urged Prime Minister Fayez El Saraj to undertake publicly to protect media freedom.Libya is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
