Open Orphan (LSE:ORPH) has enjoyed recognition and a share price spike in recent weeks. Year-to-date, the Open Orphan share price has risen over 200%. This is an incredible achievement for a relatively unknown company.As global efforts to find a cure or solution to the coronavirus pandemic ramp up, the world is focused on the pharmaceuticals sector. One stock caught in the limelight is Open Orphan, which describes itself as ‘”a rapidly growing niche CRO pharmaceutical services company”.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Covid-19 antibody testingOpen Orphan runs two commercial specialist CRO services businesses: hVIVO and Venn Life Sciences. The former operates a quarantine clinic in London, complete with on-site virology lab. The company has over 20 years of experience running clinical trials on vaccines, and works with leading pharma companies and government agencies including Merck, GSK, Gilead and DARPA.Yesterday the company confirmed hVIVO is signing an exclusive partnership agreement with US-listed Swiss pharma company Quotient. Together they will bring Covid-19 antibody testing to the UK. This should help the government understand the scale of the virus spread and help ease lockdown restrictions.Antibody tests are used to detect if a person has previously contracted coronavirus and recovered. The presence of antibodies should mean the subject has a level of immunity. This would then allow them to go back into the community with more confidence.Like its industry peers 4D pharma and Novacyt, Open Orphan has seen a spike in its share price since interest in its Covid-19 antibody test gained momentum. It has a MosaiQ Covid-19 Antibody Microarray machine on-site and hopes to have this up and running in two weeks. This machine can carry out 3,000 antibody tests per day. It will not deal directly with the public but intends to sell its services to its partners. These third parties will then sell home testing kits. The price point for home-testing is unknown but is expected to be between £70 and £150. Can the share price rise continue?Aside from its Covid development efforts, there are other notable projects on the go that should boost the Open Orphan share price. It is heading for phase 3 clinical trials for a universal flu vaccine and recently signed two new contracts. Both contracts are to provide a respiratory syncytial virus human challenge study and each contract is worth over £3m. Once the pandemic is over and normality returns, I expect governments will continue to ramp up their investment in healthcare. As a world leader in virology and vaccine studies (including flu, asthma and COPD), Open Orphan could be well placed for further growth.Open Orphan has an £80m market cap, negative earnings per share and no dividend. Listed on London’s AIM stock exchange, it is a micro-cap stock. These financials are not appealing to long-term value investors, which makes it a risky stock investment, particularly for beginners with little money.The Open Orphan share price has already experienced a large hike and I imagine it will continue to fluctuate as testing increases. Although it undoubtedly carries risk, I do think it has a unique advantage and the potential for further advancement.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Kirsteen Mackaycenter_img The Open Orphan share price has climbed over 200% year-to-date!

Tenía 60 años. Junto a él también murió Harold Cepero. Otros dos acompañantes resultaron heridos. Sus familiares dijeron que el accidente “fue provocado” por otro vehículo. Le sobreviven su esposa Ofelia Acevedo y tres hijos. En el 2002 la Unión Europea le concedió el Premio Sajarov por sus esfuerzos para lograr la democracia. Isaúl González,  director de Radio Esperanza en Miami, dijo “Siento haber perdido a un hermano de la Patria, a un hermano en la fe y la esperanza de una nueva Cuba… Dios tenga a Oswaldo en su gloria”. Hasta ahora el régimen de La Habana no ha dado la noticia pese a que han pasado más de 24 horas.El viernes pasado el mundo entero amaneció con la terrible noticia de un atentado en Aurora, Colorado, en el que un individuo sin motivo alguno, terminó con un rato de alegría al hacer fuego en una sala cinematográfica donde se estrenaba la última película de la serie Batman llamada El Caballero Oscuro. La reacción fue inmediata, el presidente Obama suspendió su campaña electoral, regresó a Washington y declaró cinco días de duelo nacional. Muchos otros han expresado enojo y rechazo ante estos hechos que empañan la industria del entretenimiento, la convivencia pacífica nacional y que dejó la trágica suma de 12 personas muertas y al menos a 58 heridos. Varios analistas han dicho que la cultura de glorificar el uso de las armas y su fácil acceso a ellas son dos de los motivos principales que generan tragedias como éstas. También se ha dicho que las escenas de violencia en el cine juegan un papel secundario. Michael Bloomberg , alcalde de Nueva York, instó a los aspirantes a la presidencia a que se definan en cuanto al uso de armas. “No es suficiente dar condolencias”, dijo.Jerald Borgie, pastor de la familia de James Holmes, sospechoso de la masacre de Colorado, ha dicho que Holmes le daba la impresión de ser “un muchacho tímido e inteligente”. La madre del sospechoso asiste regularmente a la Iglesia Luterana Penasquitos en San Diego, California. El pastor dijo que hacía 6 años que no lo veía.La Iglesia Anglicana en Sudáfrica hizo historia el 18 de julio cuando eligió a Ellinah Ntombi Wamukoya, una mujer de 61 años de edad, como obispa de Swazilandia, convirtiéndose así en la primera mujer en órdenes episcopales en África. Wamukoya es capellana de la Universidad de Swazilandia y un colegio secundario. El país ha sido protectorado de Inglaterra y en la actualidad está gobernado por una monarquía absoluta.

Dice la nota que “en diversas ocasiones” anteriores fue advertida de la posibilidad de esta medida y no hicieron caso. Según observadores los principales motivos de fricción son una herencia que data de 1940 y la negativa de la universidad de someterse a la autoridad del conservador arzobispo Juan Luis Cipriani como Gran Canciller. Con 14 departamentos académicos y 10 facultades, la universidad sirve a miles de estudiantes. Ante la presente situación una alumna escribió: “El hábito no hace al monje. Llamen a la PUCP como quieran, porque el prestigio que ostenta lo tiene bien ganado y no se lo debe a su nombre”.El domingo 22 de julio se celebró en la Iglesia Episcopal del Espíritu Santo en Miami el 25 aniversario de la consagración de Onell A.

Jon Bruno, pasó casi siete horas, los días 29 y 30 de marzo, testificando ante el tribunal que está considerando una sanción disciplinaria en su contra. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service] El tribunal [o panel de audiencia] que contempla imponerle una sanción disciplinaria al obispo de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles J. Jon Bruno ha redactado un fallo en el que pide su suspensión del ministerio ordenado durante un período de tres años por haber incurrido en una conducta impropia.El panel de cinco miembros llegó a la conclusión en un veredicto de 4 a favor y 1 uno en contra de que “el alcance y gravedad de la conducta impropia del obispo Bruno… han perturbado injusta e innecesariamente el ministerio de una misión de la Iglesia”.El dictamen propuesto de 91 páginas rechaza específicamente que Bruno sea depuesto o  expulsado del ministerio ordenado. Dice que durante los tres años de suspensión Bruno no podría ejercer ninguna autoridad sobre “la propiedad personal o los asuntos temporales de la Iglesia”. Una suspensión de tres años situaría a Bruno más allá de la fecha de su jubilación obligatoria en noviembre de 2018, cuando cumpla 72 años.La propuesta de dictamen, que aún no es final, también insta a la diócesis a dejar que los miembros de Santiago el Mayor [St. James the Great] regresen a su inmueble en Newport Beach, California.Bruno cerró la congregación hace casi dos años después de que los miembros objetaran su infructuoso intento en 2015 de vender la propiedad de Santiago el Mayor a un promotor de condominios por $15 millones en efectivo. La congregación ha estado reuniéndose para el culto en un salón del ayuntamiento de Newport Beach. Su estatus canónico con la diócesis se encuentra en un limbo.El intento de venta tuvo lugar menos de 18 meses después de que Bruno reabriera Santiago el Mayor a fines de 2013, luego de recuperar la propiedad mediante una demanda legal provocada por una ruptura de la congregación. Otras tres congregaciones de la diócesis también se dividieron en disputas acerca de la plena inclusión de personas LGBTQ en la vida de la Iglesia Episcopal.El empeño subsecuente de vender a Santiago el Mayor a una inmobiliaria llevó a los miembros de la congregación a presentar acusaciones de conducta impropia contra Bruno, alegando que violaba los Cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal. Una audiencia sobre estas acusaciones tuvo lugar en marzo.Bruno siguió intentando vender la propiedad incluso después de esa audiencia. Esas gestiones, que el obispo trató de ocultar, le ganaron una amonestación del tribunal en junio. El tribunal le dijo a Bruno que tenía que dejar de intentar vender la propiedad durante el proceso disciplinario. Si lo intentaba, o lo llevaba a cabo, antes de que el tribunal decidiera el caso original en contra suya, esa conducta sería “desestabilizadora, dilatoria y por otra parte contraria a la integridad de este procedimiento”, le dijo el tribunal en ese momento. La nota decía que lo mismo se aplicaría si dejaba de brindarle al tribunal la información requerida respecto a sus acusaciones. Tal conducta viola la porción del derecho canónico que rige la conducta de clérigos que enfrentan acciones disciplinarias (Canon IV.13.9(a) página 151 aquí).Pocos días después, el obispo primado Michael Curry restringió parcialmente el ministerio de Bruno, específicamente su capacidad de vender propiedades de la Iglesia.La apelación de Bruno a las sanciones del tribunal no prosperó.Reconociendo su incapacidad de evaluar si [la iglesia] de Santiago [el Mayor] podría haber sobrevivido de haber podido quedarse en su edificio, el tribunal dice en su propuesta de dictamen que “existe amplia evidencia de su viabilidad y promete convencer al tribunal de que a Santiago el Mayor lo privaron de una oportunidad razonable de salir adelante como una comunidad de fe sostenible”. La congregación, dice el dictamen, “es una víctima de la conducta impropia del obispo Bruno”.Calificándolo de “un asunto de justicia” el panel recomienda que la diócesis suspenda inmediatamente sus gestiones de vender la propiedad de Santiago [el Mayor], que le devuelva a la congregación y a su vicaria el edificio de la iglesia y que le reasigne a Santiago el Mayor el apropiado estatus de misión.La propuesta de dictamen dice que aunque el Canon IV.15.6 permitiría al tribunal intervenir para ayudar a Santiago el Mayor, el mismo desiste de hacerlo. “Las acciones disciplinarias del Título IV no están concebidas para abordar las complejidades de los problemas específicos de las propiedades diocesanas que se les presentan”, dice el dictamen. “El tribunal cree que los obispos sí tienen y deben tener autoridad sobre la propiedad de la misión y que la revisión y aprobación del comité permanente es una parte esencial del tejido y las normas de la Iglesia”.La propuesta  dice también que los miembros del tribunal creen que la Diócesis de Los Ángeles tiene labor que hacer para alcanzar los objetivos de justicia, restauración, restitución y reconciliación sobre los cuales se basa el proceso disciplinario del Título IV. “El tribunal está convencido de que la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, particularmente su Comité Permanente, con el liderazgo solidario de su recién ordenado coadjutor, debe decidir conscientemente participar en un proceso de autoexamen y confesión de la verdad en torno a estos desafortunados y trágicos sucesos”.Sin esa tarea, dice el tribunal, esos objetivos no se alcanzarán “desde afuera por la fuerza de un canon”.La propuesta de dictamen recuenta meticulosamente el testimonio y las pruebas que el tribunal revisó. Esencialmente respalda las alegaciones de los demandantes de Santiago [el Mayor] de que Bruno violó los cánones de la Iglesia porque:No obtuvo el consentimiento del comité permanente diocesano antes de suscribir un acuerdo para vender la propiedad.Desfiguró su intención respecto a la propiedad ante los miembros, el clero y la comunidad local en general.Expuso falsamente que Santiago el Mayor no era una congregación sostenible.Expuso falsamente que la Rda. Cindy Evans Voorhees, vicaria de Santiago [el Mayor], había renunciado.Engañó a algunos de los miembros de Santiago [el Mayor] [al decirles] que él les alquilaría la propiedad durante cierto número de meses y que la diócesis ayudaría económicamente a la iglesia, yParticipó en una conducta impropia de un miembro del clero “al desorientar y engañar” al clero y al pueblo de Santiago [el Mayor], así como a la comunidad local, respecto a sus planes para la propiedad y por tomar posesión de la propiedad y privar a la congregación de acceso a ella.Herman Hollerith IV, obispo de la Diócesis de Virginia Sur, es el presidente del tribunal que lleva el caso contra Bruno. El panel, nombrado por la Junta Disciplinaria para los Obispos de entre sus miembros, incluye al obispo de Rhode Nicholas Knisely, al obispo de Dakota del Norte Michael Smith, al Rdo. Erik Larsen de Rhode Island y a Deborah Stokes Ohio Sur.Smith disintió de la propuesta de dictamen. Dijo que ninguna de las partes debió haber llevado sus disputas a los tribunales seculares, incluido  [el litigio] con los miembros de las cuatro congregaciones divididas. Y citó a I Corintios 6:1,7-8 en que se amonesta a los cristianos en contra de presentar demandas legales. Smith también dijo que las disputas de propiedades no debían ventilarse en el proceso disciplinario de la Iglesia Episcopal.Y él sugirió que Santiago [el Mayor] estaba demasiado centrado en una propiedad en particular. “En este momento de la vida de la Iglesia, muchas congregaciones están aprendiendo a convertirse en comunidades de fe afuera ‘de las cuatro paredes del edificio de la iglesia’”, escribió él.El tribunal no dio a conocer públicamente su propuesta de dictamen. Al parecer le dio copia de la misma a los demandantes y al Obispo Primado con vistas a obtener comentarios. El Título IV.14.7 (página 153 aquí) llama a esas partes “a ser oídas sobre los términos propuestos del dictamen”.  Los comentarios al tribunal están previstos para el 26 de julio.A Bruno no se le permite que haga ningún comentario al tribunal sobre la propuesta. La diócesis publicó un comunicado el 21 de julio en el que dice que nadie de la diócesis haría ninguna declaración pública sobre la propuesta “manteniendo su compromiso de respetar la integridad del proceso del Título IV, una prioridad que el obispo Bruno ha mantenido a lo largo del proceso de dos años de duración.”Neva Rae Fox, encargada de relaciones públicas de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo que la Iglesia no haría ningún comentario en tanto el proceso del Título IV continúe.Roger Bloom, asesor de comunicaciones que trabaja para Santiago [el Mayor] publicó la propuesta de dictamen en las últimas horas del 21 de julio; según se dio a conocer, luego de consultar a un abogado que le dijo que los cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal no impiden su publicación.Cuarenta días después de que se emita el dictamen final, la Rvdma. Catherine Waynick, presidente de la Junta Disciplinaria para los Obispos, tiene 20 días para sentenciar a Bruno. Él puede apelar esa sentencia y, si lo hace, la sentencia no se impone mientras la apelación esté en proceso. Sin embargo, entretanto se ratifica el dictamen, la restricción parcial de Curry sobre Bruno se mantiene en vigor.Bruno cumple 72 años, la edad de jubilación obligatoria en la Iglesia Episcopal, a fines de 2018. Su sucesor, el obispo coadjutor John Taylor, fue ordenado y consagrado el 8 de julio en Los Ángeles.– La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora sénior y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Building area and land area of the project: Ground floor: 73 m2, first floor: 76 m2, total floors: 148.7 m2, and land: 500 m2. The land is located in Maklavan city in Fuman County, Gilan province, which has a pristine landscape. We could make the most of these landscapes by creating large openings and proper layout of the spaces. These openings also contribute to provide ventilation and draught, which is essential for the design in this area. Due to the dimensional limitations of the land (50 x 10), an attempt was made to establish maximum connection with the outside area while maintaining maximum privacy to the adjoining property on the east side.Save this picture!© Majid Safari SekhavatSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Majid Safari SekhavatThe project is designed to create a space for leisure. Extrovert architecture, which is one of the architectural features of Gilan province, has been implemented in all spaces of the building. The void, in addition to providing proper ventilation in the spaces while maintaining the privacy of the private and public areas, has been a great help in highlighting this extrovert architecture in the design. Regarding the dimensional limitations of the land (50 x 10) and the fact that the main view is on the south and west sides, and due to the need to maintain the view, we had to keep a distance of two meters from the west side of the land.Save this picture!© Majid Safari SekhavatMoreover, the designable width was reduced to 8 meters, which created a challenge in designing. The most notable feature of this building is the achievement of a regionalist design, free from irrational returns to the past and its unreasonable repetition in today’s world.Save this picture!© Majid Safari SekhavatIn addition to creating a pleasant structure in accordance with today’s needs, we have tried to have a glimpse into the architectural identity and the indigenous architecture of the region. For example: 1. Materials and architectural elements are reminiscent of the space of Gilan’s houses. For example, the concrete beams of the last roof are placed diagonally, and the wooden beams are visibly placed on those diagonal beams and the roof is uniformly wooden.Save this picture!© Majid Safari SekhavatSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Majid Safari Sekhavat2. The entrance is designed in such a way that in order to access the entrance door of the building, one has to cross a bridge, which is located on a pool of 4 x 8. The pool and bridge, in addition to creating a desirable atmosphere, subconsciously brings the region ecology to the mind. 3. The main balcony of the building on the first floor has wooden beams with glass on top, making the balcony usable even on rainy days.

National Trust to boost digital staff from 3.5 posts to 25

first_img Howard Lake | 13 May 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Individual giving The National Trust is to launch a five-year ‘e-engagement programme’ to reach its 3.5 million members by increasing its dedicated digital staff numbers from 3.5 posts to 25. The Trust’s trustees have agreed to spend nearly £5 million on the new department for the first two years with the aim of completely revamping the organisation’s digital offering. The charity is expected to invest £2 million a year from then on.The focus on new media follows a comprehensive year-long review of the National Trust’s digital communications by voluntary sector consultancy THINK Consulting Solutions.Luke Whitcomb, member and visitor marketing director at the National Trust, said: “Until now our digital capability had been relatively weak. We had a small web team – with an establishment of 3.5 posts – that operated on the fringes of our marketing communications and struggled to meet the demands of the organisation.“Yet at the same time, our research showed that both our members, and non-member visitors to Trust properties, were well above national averages in their ownership and use of digital technology.”The new service-oriented digital media department will report directly to Sue Wilkinson, director of marketing and supporter development.Whitcomb added: “This means that digital media will be represented at the highest level in the marketing department and allow other departments such as membership, marketing, fundraising and enterprises to really maximise their online and digital potential.”The first two-year phase of the new programme will see the setting up of a new user-friendly content management system and the creation of a members’ extranet with self-service functionality, day-out planning services and piloting of user-generated content.THINK’s digital media expert Jason Potts said: “Too many charities just will not invest in digital communications, nor will they bring digital communications right into the centre of their operations. The National Trust has done both of these things and it is going to serve them well over the next five years”.The project is now being taken forward by THINK’s new signing, digital and new media expert Nick Burne, who joined the consultancy in March this year after a three-year stint as head of interactive marketing at Christian Aid.www.thinkcs.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Italian journalist threatened after reporting on the abuse of sanitary crisis by mafia in Sicily

first_img DR News ItalyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independence ImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence April 16, 2020 Italian journalist threatened after reporting on the abuse of sanitary crisis by mafia in Sicily Ever since La Repubblica journalist Salvo Palazzolo reported on 8 April on mafia’s attempts to recover parts of the national territory by acts of solidarity in favour of the poorest, he has been targeted by a wave of hate messages on social networks coming from Cusimano’s supporters. They called him a “disgusting journalist” and a ”bastard”, claiming “journalists are worse than the coronavirus.” News RSF_en Cities in Southern Italy that have already been infiltrated by the mafia are now badly affected by the economic and social crisis resulting from the lockdown imposed by the government to contain the coronavirus epidemic. It is also the case of a low-income quarter of Palermo. In order to compensate for the shortcomings of the government’s measures during the lockdown and to allow the criminal organisation to increase its influence, the brother of Giuseppe Cusimano, a mafia boss imprisoned on drug trafficking charges, started distributing free food to the poorest local population. ItalyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independence ImpunityFreedom of expressionViolence Italy’s main journalists’ association immediately voiced support for Palazzolo who specializes in covering organized crime and was regularly threatened in the past. At the same time, the local authorities opened an investigation into the distribution of food in the heart of Palermo. Calling on the Italian authorities to reinforce the protection provided to Palazzolo, RSF believes it is more important than ever for journalists to be able to shed light on mafia’s attempts to exploit the current economic and social crisis to extend its influence.

RSF concerned about search of Armenian news website

first_img to go further September 18, 2018 RSF concerned about search of Armenian news website The authorities insisted that the searches had “nothing to do with the journalistic activities” of Yerevan.Today and were carried out as part of an investigation into the origin of a secretly-recorded phone conversation between two top security officials, which the Armenian media published last week. News RSF_en RSF_EECA News A big wave of peaceful protests in April led to Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan’s removal and replacement by the protests’ main leader, Nikol Pashinyan. The new government has promised to combat corruption and improve the rule of law. Armenia is ranked 80th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. “The search of Yerevan.Today’s premises and the seizure of its equipment constitute grave violations of the principle of the protection of journalists’ sources, which is guaranteed by Armenian legislation and the European Court of Human Rights,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “We regret that the police did not seek a less intrusive and more proportionate way to achieve their legitimate goal.” In the recording, National Security Service chief Artur Vanetsyan and Special Investigative Service chief Sasun Khachatryan were heard discussing the prosecution of former President Robert Kocharyan and a former defence minister in connection with the bloody crackdown on protests in 2008. The recording suggested that they had sought and obtained the current Prime Minister’s approval before arresting the former officials. Vanetsyan and Khachatryan recognized the recording’s authenticity but said their comments have been misinterpreted. Receive email alerts Follow the news on Armenia The recording was widely reported in the Armenian media on 11 September after being posted on YouTube. The authorities claim that Yerevan.Today briefly posted it online two days earlier and then deleted it. Yerevan.Today insists that this claim stems from an erroneous technical evaluation. Computer security experts say the website can be right. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns yesterday’s search by police of the headquarters of the Yerevan-based Armenian news website Yerevan.Today. It violated the confidentiality of journalists’ sources, RSF said. The police removed some of Yerevan.Today’s computer equipment during the search, which lasted seven hours and temporarily stopped the site from operating. They also searched the home of its editor, Sevak Hakobyan.

In crude intimidatory tactic, state ads withheld from Pakistani daily

first_img“It is unacceptable that a newspaper that just reports undisputed facts in the public interest should be punished with such a drastic form of economic strangulation,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “We unreservedly condemn this crude intimidatory tactic designed to dictate the editorial line journalists should take. This method, which bears the military establishment’s hallmark, harks back to the worst moments of military dictatorship in Pakistan.” Iqbal Khattak of Freedom Network, RSF’s partner NGO in Pakistan, added: “This civilian government won the 2018 election with the slogan ‘Tabdeeli’ (Change) but the decision to withdraw all state advertising from the newspaper Dawn is a blatant continuation of governmental news control methods. We urge Prime Minister Imran Khan to intercede personally to end this unjustified measure and to defend press freedom in Pakistan.” Still speaking on condition of anonymity, a member of the Dawn group’s management told RSF that, for the past two and a half years, Dawn had received absolutely no advertising from commercial entities linked to the military, such as the Fauzi and Askari groups, whose activities include banking, energy, food processing and construction. PakistanAsia – Pacific Media independence Freedom of expressionPredatorsEconomic pressure Organisation May 23, 2019 In crude intimidatory tactic, state ads withheld from Pakistani daily RSF_en Follow the news on Pakistan Help by sharing this information April 21, 2021 Find out more Dawn’s story was based on quotes from the official transcript of the press conference but certain government officials clearly did not like the angle taken by the newspaper’s reporters, or the fact that what the prime minister said while abroad was being reproduced for domestic readers. The authorities have offered no explanation for their treatment of Dawn but the newspaper thinks it knows the reason. Speaking on condition of anonymity, a member of its management told RSF: “Our understanding is that this ad ban started a day after we published Prime Minister Imran Khan’s comments at a press conference in Tehran, when he said militants based in Pakistan had been involved in attacks inside Iran.” News Receive email alerts “There have been instances in which one of these companies has reserved advertising space in one of Dawn’s supplements and then withdrawn the order at the last minute without giving any reason,” the source said. Journalists are exposed to reprisals if they venture across the red lines imposed by the military, which include any criticism – even implicit ­– of the armed forces or government, any reference to movements that defend the rights of minorities, and even any mention of jailed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the military’s bugbear. News Red lines This was retaliation for an earlier offence in October 2016, when Dawn dared to publish a story containing explosive details of the way the military and intelligence agencies defy the civilian government. The story’s author, Cyril Almeida, and editor Zaffar Abbas were threatened with serious reprisals and Dawn has been in the deep state’s sights ever since. Launched in 1941 as part of the fight against British colonialism, Dawn is now one of the last bastions of press freedom in Pakistan. It was because of an interview with Sharif that Dawn deputy editor Cyril Almeida was charged with treason last September. Distribution of the newspaper was arbitrarily blocked when the interview was published on 12 May 2018. This is also an effective way to jeopardize a newspaper’s survivability, as advertisers are reluctant to buy space in a publication whose circulation is being restricted. Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists In one of the most insidious forms of coercion, Dawn was suddenly deprived of any income from federal government advertising on 24 April. Its sister media outlet, DawnNews TV, was subjected to the same treatment two days later. News control to go further As Pakistan is a country where almost no advertising revenue is available from a fledgling private sector independent of the government, this advertising ban poses a grave threat to the media group’s economic viability. Last bastion PakistanAsia – Pacific Media independence Freedom of expressionPredatorsEconomic pressure The month-old withdrawal of advertising from the Dawn group is typical of the harassment, intimidation and censorship methods used by Pakistan’s “deep state,” a euphemism for its armed forces and intelligence services, which cannot stand journalistic freedom. After falling three places, Pakistan is ranked 142nd out of 180 countries in the 2019 World Press Freedom Index which RSF published last month, drawing attention to the “cycle of fear” that has taken hold in many countries. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled by the withdrawal of state advertising from Pakistan’s prestigious daily Dawn for the past month, and calls for an end to this method of pressure and intimidation, which is jeopardizing the editorial independence of the country’s oldest newspaper. Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder Launched in 1941 by Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the father of the Pakistani nation, Dawn is the country’s oldest and most prestigious newspaper.
