first_img Philippe Bertinchamps, a Belgian journalist based in Belgrade who reports for Le Courrier des Balkans, Mediapart, Libération, RFI, RTBF, Le Soir, La Tribune de Genève and other international French-language media, is currently threatened with expulsion by Serbia’s interior ministry (MUP) on the pretext that he poses an “obstacle to public order and national security.”No grounds have ever been offered to support this claim. Bertinchamps was previously summoned twice by Serbia’s Security Intelligence Agency (BIA) for “in-depth informative interviews” – the first time in April 2017, shortly after Serbia’s latest presidential election, which he covered.Given the extremely worrying situation of media freedom in Serbia, where independent journalists are nowadays the targets of physical and verbal violence and even hate campaigns by pro-government media, we believe that this case must, as a matter of urgency, be drawn to the attention of the Serbian, European and international public.Bertinchamps has been covering Serbia and most the western Balkans for the past ten years, and he has always displayed the utmost impartiality in his reporting. He has never had any run-ins with the police and, until 2017, he had always obtained his residence permits without any problem.Based in Belgrade since 2007, he is married to a Serbian woman who is a press photographer, and he is the father of a five-year-old girl. His application for a temporary residence permit on preservation of family unity grounds was nonetheless rejected by the MUP in April 2017 and again on 8 January 2018 without any explanation.A Serbian administration court ruled in his favour in November 2017, agreeing that the authorities should provide grounds for their rejection of his application. The MUP’s two refusals violate not only Serbian procedural regulations but also article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, on respect for private and family life.As the Serbian authorities pay little heed to court rulings and the interior ministry’s behaviour is unworthy of a country seeking admission to the European Union, and because he also wants to defend his career as a journalist, Bertinchamps has decided not only to file a new complaint with the administrative court but also to refer his situation to the highest European and international authorities.A press conference will be held on 20 February at Belgrade’s Medija Centar at 2PMLe Courrier des BalkansMediapartLibérationReporters sans Frontières La Tribune de GenèveRTBF- InformationsRadio France InternationaleLe SoirPhilippe Bertinchamps (Filip Bertinšan), dopisnik velikog broja inostranih medija u Srbiji, među kojima su Le Courrier des Balkans, Mediapart, Liberation, RFI, RTBF, Le Soir i La Tribune de Geneve, trenutno trpi pretnje proterivanjem iz Srbije, od strane Ministarstva unutrašnjih poslova (MUP), pod izgovorom da predstavlja «pretnju javnom redu i nacionalnoj sigurnosti». Ova odluka nije ničim motivisana niti opravdana. Philippe Bertinchamps je pre njenog donošenja već bio pozivan od strane Srpske službe za bezbednost (BIA) na «detaljne informativne razgovore», u aprilu 2017, dan posle predsedničkih izbora u Srbiji, o kojima je kao novinar izveštavao.Imajući u vidu trenutni više nego zabrinjavajući položaj slobode medija u Srbiji, gde nezavisni novinari trpe fizičke i verbalne napade, pa čak i pozive na linčovanja od strane provladinih medija, smatramo da je neophodno obratiti se kako Srpskom, tako i Evropskom i međunarodnom javnom mnjenju.Philippe Bertinchamps svojim novinarskim radom pokriva Srbiju i većinu zemalja Zapadnog Balkana već punih deset godina u kojima je uvek pokazivao najveći stepen nepristrasnosti. Nikad nije imao problema sa policijom, i do 2017. godine je uvek dobijao dozvolu za boravak u skladu sa propisima.Kao belgijski državljanin, Philippe Bertinchamps živi u Beogradu od 2007. godine, oženjen je državljankom Srbije koja je takođe novinarka i fotoreporterka, a takođe je i otac petogodišnje devojčice. Odbijen je, bez ikakvog objašnjenja, nakon zahteva za privremeni boravak radi spajanja porodice od strane MUP-a, 8. januara 2018. godine, drugi put od aprila 2017. godine. U novembru 2017. godine je međutim Upravni sud Srbije doneo presudu da vlasti moraju da opravdaju razloge za odbijanje njegovog zahteva. Odluke MUP-a u ovom slučaju krše pravila postupka, ali i član 8. Evropske konvencije o ljudskim pravima o poštovanju privatnog i porodičnog života. Sudbina Philippe Bertinchamps-a i njegove porodice sada u potpunosti zavisi od volje srpskih vlasti.Imajući u vidu često ignorisanje pravosudnih odluka od strane srpskih vlasti, kako bi se sprečile policijske zloupotrebe koje ne priliče jednoj državi kandidatkinji za evropske integracije, ali i kako bi odbranio svoj posao kao novinar, Philippe Bertinchamps je odlučio da se ponovo žali upravnom sudu, i da se obrati najvišim evropskim i međunarodnim vlastima povodom svoje situacije.Konferencija za štampu će biti održana 20. februara u Medija centru u Beogradu.Le Courrier des BalkansMediapartLibérationReporters sans FrontièresLa Tribune de GenèveRTBF- InformationsRadio France InternationaleLe Soir SerbiaBelgiumEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassment SerbiaBelgiumEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists Judicial harassment News RSF_en to go further Philippe Bertinchamps/ © Dalibor Danilovic News Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia June 4, 2021 Find out morecenter_img The Serbian interior ministry has rejected a request by Philippe Bertinchamps, a Belgrade-base Belgian correspondent for various French-language media, for a temporary residence permit so that he can continue living with his Serbian family.

first_imgParis, France | AFP |  FIFA on Wednesday ordered a World Cup qualifier between South Africa and Senegal to be replayed after the referee was banned for match fixing.The November 2016 tie, which will be restaged in November, was won by South Africa 2-1 after Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey awarded them a controversial penalty.Lamptey was initially suspended for three months by African football’s ruling body CAF for awarding a penalty for a non-existant handball”, with FIFA handing down the life ban in March.News of the rematch comes as a boost for Senegal, who are placed third, one point behind Cape Verde and Burkina Faso in African zone qualifying Group D, with two games to go.Only the group winners secure a ticket to the 2018 finals in Russia. FIFA explained the decision to replay the game had come after sport’s highest court CAS had confirmed “the lifetime ban of match referee, Joseph Lamptey, for match manipulation, the ruling imposed by the FIFA Disciplinary and Appeal Committees”.The statement added: “The match will be replayed within the November 2017 international window, with the exact date to be confirmed in due course.

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesMauricio Pochettino refused to blame his Tottenham players for conceding two second-half goals to crash out of the Champions League against Juventus.Spurs looked to be heading into the quarter-finals after Heung-Min Son’s first-half strike put them 3-2 up on aggregate, but Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala delivered a hammer blow within three devastating minutes.“I am disappointed because we missed a lot of chances, and the team deserved more,” Pochettino said. “The way we conceded we feel disappointed but not only me, the players in the changing room as well.“It was a little bit unfair. To concede these goals is tough because until this moment we were much better. I feel very proud. We dominated. Overall in the two games we were much better.Embed from Getty Images“When you compete at the same level against a team that played two finals in this competition, only you can feel proud and understand that, in football, sometimes you cannot win for different circumstances.“It was no lack off experience, no lack of concentration. How many chances did we concede in first and second leg? We conceded three (tonight) and they scored twice. We created a lot and scored one.“We can talk about different situations. (But) all we are going to talk now is all rubbish because in the end you win or lose. Sometimes you need some luck. We were unlucky because if Harry (Kane) scores at the end, or the chances in the first half go in…that is football.“Only I can say again I am happy with my players. We tried everything to win.

first_imgThe Buffalo Volunteer Rifles celebrates its 135th anniversary in 2011.(Image: Shamin Chibba) South Africa is a country not only built on gold and diamonds, but on the blood of many who strove to claim the land as theirs. Sadly, many relics from these battles are lost. However, there are a few people who have made it their purpose to preserve the precious artifacts that survived, and make them accessible to the public.One such place is the Buffalo Volunteer Rifles (BVR) Military Museum in East London. The museum is the city’s hidden gem; unknown to many yet containing a treasure trove of history.According to curator Major Anthony Step, the museum serves as a depository of war history that is preserved for future generations.“We house military memorabilia pertaining to those who served in all branches in all wars,” he said.For Step, the museum, located at BVR headquarters on Fleet Street, is a true representative of internal conflict in the country. It contains items from as far back as the Cape Frontier Wars, which started in the 18th century, to the liberation struggle of the latter 1900s.The museum is divided into four themes – the armed struggle, military artifacts, BVR regimental memorabilia and a depository of the commander units which were closed down in 2006.The museum houses old artillery, medals, guns, uniforms and photographs. However, Step did acknowledge that not everything could be salvaged.“This is the sad thing about conflict. Some things get lost and stolen – that is why it is important to have a museum,” he said.The East London Museum is currently assisting the BVR centre with items related to the armed struggle during apartheid. Though the headquarters are running out of space to house all these goods, Step said there is another base they would utilise in the future.Cherished relicsOne of Step’s prized items is a document containing the minutes of BVR meetings in 1876, its first year of existence. He also treasures the kilted uniform of the BVR’s Scottish Highland Company.Any visitor, though, would be startled at a well preserved letter sent to a Nazi officer, congratulating him on his efforts. It was signed by Adolf Hitler.Step has had to search for artifacts throughout the Eastern Cape to fill the museum.One such item is the cannon that greets visitors at the entrance to the headquarters. It was used by the British during the Napoleonic War before being brought to South Africa for the British campaign in 1834. The cannon was later found standing outside the Civic Centre in the small town of Keiskammahoek in the Eastern Cape province.The museum also has the two cannons that were previously displayed outside the East London City Hall. The BVR took them before they could be discarded by city officials. However, they are disintegrating slowly.“They need immediate restoration or they will be lost to rust and corrosion. The regiment does not have the funds to do so,” said Step.A consummate storytellerIt is not only the items themselves that inspire awe, but also the astounding knowledge that Step displays when he shows visitors around the room. He is a consummate storyteller, providing tidbits of information on almost every item in the complex.Step believes the value of an item is measured by the tales it can tell. “Every piece in a museum must tell a story,” he said.Looking at a battlefield illustration, drawn during the Anglo-Boer War, he chuckled while pointing out that at the very same spot a soldier, who was sitting passively, was shot in the head. Before he collapsed, the soldier cried, “Who threw that stone at me?”About the Buffalo Volunteer Rifles•    An infantry regiment of the South African army, the Buffalo Volunteer Rifles is in its 135th year of existence. It was established as the Buffalo Mounted Rifles in 1876 by Edward Yord Brabant.•    The regiment changed its name four times. In 1879 it was known as the Cape Mounted Yeomanry before changing to the Kaffrarian Rifles in the 1890s. It became known as the Buffalo Volunteer Rifles in 1999.•    One of the more controversial figures was Rowland Bettington, who commanded the regiment in the 1890s and gained notoriety when he partook in the Jameson Raid.•    In 1927 the BVR officially affiliated itself with the King’s Royal Rifle Corps.•    The BVR boasts a Victorian Cross hero in Gerrard Ross “Toys” Norton. He received the accolade after his efforts in the Second World War. He is only one of three South Africans to have received the medal, which is displayed at the BVR Museum alongside a photo of the war veteran.•    Among the BVR’s latest members are former soldiers of the liberation struggle who fought against the apartheid regime.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Newcastle striker Rondon: I chose number 9 for Shearer pressureby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveSalomon Rondon has revealed he chose the number nine jersey at Newcastle on purpose. The Venezuelan has been in excellent form for the Magpies, who he joined from West Bromwich Albion on loan in the summer. Rondon has always wore the number 23 jersey during his career, but he revealed that he enjoys the pressure of wearing the jersey previously worn by club legend and the Premier League’s all-time top goalscorer Alan Shearer.”It was a peculiar story,” Rondon said.”The ’23’ was free, my number of always, and the ‘9’. One of the people who closed the transfer told me: ‘The ‘9’ is a very important number at Newcastle because it was led by Shearer, who is the club’s top scorer and the history of the Premier League. If you dare to wear it, it will be fine. ‘ And so it has been.”It is a pressure that pleases me. I work well on pressure because it is where one more demands and is forced to give the maximum.”We exchanged some tweets, but personally I still do not know (Shearer). I would love it (to meet him), not only for what it has been at Newcastle, but for what it has represented for football.” last_img read more

What he says, the people follow him in the locker room.”He added: “He is a player who can play many positions and has a good personality – that’s why he is so important for us.
