No mesmo dia, um oficial de justiça, acompanhado pelo advogado do Governador, apresentou-se ao jornal para assegurar-se de que a transcrição não aparecia na edição do dia seguinte.”A censura prévia é prática que só se encontra em regimes ditatoriais. É indigna de uma democracia como o Brasil”, declarou Robert Ménard, secretário geral de Repórteres sem Fronteiras. Além disso, qualificou de “vergonhoso” e “chocante” o fato de que um dirigente, que pretende ter o mandato renovado, possa recorrer a práticas tão antidemocráticas.”Essa decisão é contrária à Convenção americana sobre direitos humanos ratificada pelo Brasil. Não cabe, de modo algum, ao Poder Judiciário decidir o que os brasileiros podem ou não ler”, enfatizou a organização. Repórteres sem Fronteiras explicou que “banir a censura não significa retirar a responsabilidade da mídia. Esta continua podendo ser processada civilmente e obrigada a pagar indenização em caso de difamação comprovada”.No dia 23 de outubro, o desembargador Jirair Meguerian, do Tribunal Regional Eleitoral de Brasília, determinou “busca e apreensão, com arrombamento ou entrada compulsória, na sede, se houver necessidade” de todos os exemplares da edição do Correio Brazilense do dia seguinte se contivesse transcrições de gravações de conversas telefônicas entre o Governador Joaquim Roriz (PMDB) e os irmãos Passos, dois empresarios. Essas gravações tratariam da implicação do Governador num caso de grilagem de terras. Naquela noite, Ricardo Yoshida, oficial de justiça, acompanhado por Adolfo Marques da Costa, advogado de Joaquim Roriz, se apresentaram ao prédio do jornal para se assegurarem de que a edição do dia 24 de outubro não continha a transcrição incriminada.O juiz tomou tal decisão a pedido do Governador e da coaligação Frente Brasília Solidária, que apóia a candidatura de Roriz. Para recorrer à Justiça, os dois alegaram “fortes indícios” de que o diário iria publicar as transcrições das gravações. Tal proibição pesa sobre o jornal desde 1o de outubro.

Gambling during wakes okay but…

first_imgILOILO City – Gambling during wakes isallowed but there should not be too many gambling tables, according to PoliceGeneral Archie Francisco Gamboa, director of the Philippine National Police(PNP). The most popular games in wakes –which runs for days if not weeks until the burial – are mahjong and card gamesof various kinds. Gambling as a pastime in wakes is aFilipino tradition. It keeps people around and awake at the vigil. Photo courtesy of Flickr Gamboa said there are no official PNPguidelines yet on gambling during wakes but he stressed there should be a fewtables only, such as one for mahjong and one for tong-its. There was no gambling at Espanto’swake. The police may make arrests ifgambling during wakes has become unbridled, he said. “Angproblema kasi nag-e-extend ng maraming tables,” said Gamboa,lamenting that such is already going beyond the spirit of why authorities aretolerant of gambling during wakes. In fact, he said, in the NationalCapital Region, the regional police office under Police Major General DeboldSinas banned all types of gambling in wakes although this earned the ire ofresidents. He issued the statement during a visitto the wake of Police Captain Efren Espanto Jr. – who was killed in anencounter with rebels in Janiuay, Iloilo on Feb. 12 – at the Police RegionalOffice 6 in Camp Delgado here on Saturday. Some sort of “tax” – the so-called“tong” – from these games is given to the family of the dead person to helpdefray burial expenses./PNlast_img read more
