Victoria Street Richmond’s latest addition, the Audrey Apartments by Carr Design Group are complete and ready to welcome the first residents.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe striking facade of the multi-residential development draws heavily from its surrounding industrial neighbourhood. The design solution offers an interplay of light and shadows that provides a level of privacy and security from the heavy traffic of Victoria Street.Save this picture!First Floor PlanOperable louvres are incorporated into the facade to enable the user to define the level of opacity for the screen. This visual language is reinforced in the interiors, with the texture of the facade ‘basket’ woven through the entry to create a unified concept for architecture and interiors.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathCarr came onto the project with the site’s planning approval in place and preliminary construction already commenced. Carr worked deftly around the existing cost plan, value managing adjustments to ensure constructability was maintained, while ensuring design efficiencies were achieved within living spaces.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathAfter an initial concept presentation, the original scope to redesign the facade was expanded to encompass a considerable redesign of the project. Lead by the pure architecture concept of the facade, the project developed into an elegantly proportioned form, ultimately at ease with its context. The approach established an ongoing relationship with the client.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanAudrey sits comfortably in its site, bookended by two heritage redbrick buildings. The considered material palette of grey and black are interplayed to break up the mass of the building, seamlessly creating coherence in the streetscape. The powder coated aluminium facade appears grey from the street, shifting to black as the louvers are adjusted from resident’s balconies which will create a dynamic pattern when the building is occupied as users interact with the screens in different ways.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe louvers give controlled views in graphic and rational ways, articulating a clear linkage to Carr’s previous residential architecture in Frame House and the Marquis apartments. To the south, the views extend over low scale Richmond across to the MCG. From level two the lobbies provide clear views to the city to the West, the glazed stair bringing daylight into the core.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThe concept of the basket weave is incorporated throughout the project, white matte and gloss tiles in the bathroom are a subtle play on the external facade. The kitchen joinery is generous, providing internal amenity to enhance a compact floor plan.Save this picture!Fourth Floor PlanThe lobby is terrazzo floor with concrete walls leading to an open stair. Retail space at street level is flagged to be a future medical facility. The outcome of the form reflects the industrial nature of the site, gridded by Victoria Street’s tram line.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrathThere was an intention from the onset to expand the structure onto the roof with the addition of two prefab rooftop pods.

RSF welcomes UN’s commitment to tackle the issues of journalists’ safety and impunity

first_img Help by sharing this information Related documents IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY 2013-2014 – UN PLAN OF ACTION ON THE SAFETY OF JOURNALISTS AND THE ISSUE OF IMPUNITY PDF – 602.33 KB RSF_en Reporters Without Borders welcomes UN’s commitment to tackle the issue of the safety of journalists and the issue on impunity and the recent adoption of its Plan of Action 2013-2014. The organization looks forward to participating in its implementation strategy, published on February 27th, aiming at reinforcing the following principles:“The UN’s action in the area of the safety of journalists and the issue of impunity is based on the premise that its component institutions share a common interest in creating conditions conducive to journalistic safety. The rationale is that this safety is an important prerequisite for achieving freedom of expression, democracy, social development and peace – which are all central to UN bodies fulfilling their mandates”.Reporters Without Borders believes that this process should notably lead to the implementation of the following measures: 1. Extend Statesʼ obligations to non-professional “news providers”2. Extend Statesʼ obligations beyond war situations3. Establish effective monitoring of respect for States’ obligations.1.Extend Statesʼ obligations to non-professional “news providers”When governments try to impose a news blackout by censoring professional journalists, citizen journalists and netizens often step up to report and inform the public. By doing so, these citizens share the risks inherent to journalism and expose themselves to the same violence Reporters Without Borders therefore asks for :- the adoption by the United Nations of a resolution enshrining the obligation of States to protect all news providers, both professional and non-professional, on the lines of UN Security Council Resolution 1738- a declaration from UNESCO enshrining the need for States to work for the protection and safety of citizen journalists and netizens and to combat impunity for those responsible for abuses against them.2.Extend Statesʼ obligations beyond war situations7 journalists and 6 citizen-journalists have been killed while reporting the news since the beginning of 2013. 143 were lost their lives in 2012. The majority of human rights violations against journalists take place outside of armed conflict situations. It is thus crucial to extend the range of member states obligations.Reporters Without Borders therefore asks for:- the adoption by the United Nations of a resolution under which the obligation of States to protect all news providers – enshrined so far as wartime is concerned by UN Security Council Resolution 1738 – is extended to situations of unrest, internal tension, public danger and peacetime.3.Establish effective monitoring of respect for States’ obligationsUN Security Council Resolution 1738, UNESCO’s Medellin Declaration and the Geneva Conventions do protect journalists and combat impunity for those responsible for physical attacks against them. The problem is not a legal void but the lack of contro of the respect of their obligations by member states.Reporters Without Borders:- Calls on States to investigate all acts of violence or fatal incidents in which journalists, media workers and related personnel are the victims, both those that take place on their territory and those that take place abroad when their armed forces or security forces may be involved.- Requests clarification of the legal status of journalists who are “embedded” with military units in wartime in order to clearly establish whether, in the event of capture by the opposing party, they can benefit from the status envisaged in article 4.A.4 of the Third Geneva Convention of 12 August 1949 on the treatment of prisoners of war, or if they just benefit from civilian status, it being understood that they may under no circumstances be treated as combatants.- Points out that, even when used for propaganda purposes, news media cannot be regarded as military targets, as defined in article 52 § 2 of Protocol Additional 1 to the 1949 Geneva Conventions, and must therefore not be the targets of attacks or reprisals, unless they are being used for military purposes or to perpetrate or incite acts of genocide, crime against humanity, or grave violations of international humanitarian law.Photo: AFP Organisation News February 28, 2013 – Updated on January 25, 2016 RSF welcomes UN’s commitment to tackle the issues of journalists’ safety and impunitylast_img read more

Impunity reigns in murders of journalists in Iran

first_img News The victims include Ebrahim Zalzadeh, who disappeared in March 1996 and whose body was found a month later with 15 stab wounds, Zahra Kazemi, a photographer who died in detention in 2003, Ayfer Serçe, a Kurdish reporter for the Firat news agency killed in 2006, Omidreza Mirsayafi, a young blogger who died in detention in 2009, Alireza Eftekhari, a former Abrar Economie journalist who died in detention in 2009, Haleh Sahabi, a journalist and women’s rights activist killed in 2011, Hoda Saber, an Iran-e-Farda journalist who died in detention in 2011, and Sattar Beheshti, a blogger who died in detention in 2012.Iran is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. IranMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesEvents ImpunityPredatorsViolence Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists News IranMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abusesEvents ImpunityPredatorsViolence On the 20th anniversary of a wave of murders of Iranian journalists and intellectuals, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for justice to be finally rendered by prosecuting the perpetrators and instigators of these crimes, many of whom hold senior public office today in Iran. RSF marked this tragic anniversary by organizing a commemorative event yesterday evenng in Paris attended by leading Iranian human rights defenders including 2003 Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi, the lawyer of the families of the victims, and Abdul Karime Lahiji, the head of the Iranian League for Human Rights and honorary president of the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH).Those attending also included the writer Parastou Forouhar, who is the daugher of Parvaneh and Darioush Forouhar, two well-known intellectuals and members of the liberal opposition, who were found stabbed to death in their Tehran home in 1998. In the presence of these human rights defenders, RSF called on the Iraqi authorites to end the decades-old tradition of impunity for crimes of violence against journalists.“We will not abandon this now 20-year-old fight for justice,” RSF advocacy adviser Sophie Busson said, opening the event. “This is not just about preventing people from forgetting. Bringing those responsible for these murders to trial and tracking down the instigators also means giving journalists the ability to pursue their courageous reporting mission today.”Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran-Afghanistan desk, appealed to the international community, including Javaid Rehman, the new UN special rapporteur on the human rights situation in Iran, to support the families of the victims who filed complaints with international bodies 16 years ago.As well as Darioush and Parvaneh Forouhar, the many intellectuals and government opponents murdered in November and December 1998 included Majid Sharif, a columnist for the monthly Iran-e-Farda, and the writers and journalists Mohamad Mokhtari and Mohamad Jafar Pouyandeh. Pirouz Davani, the editor of the newspaper Pirouz, disappeared a few months before the others were murdered. His body was never found.The murders (and Davani’s disappearance) triggered an outcry in much of the reformist press that forced the authorities into creating a commission of enquiry.In January 1999, the intelligence ministry formally acknowledged the involvement of some of its operatives and announced the arrest of dozens of suspects. Fifteen intelligence ministry agents were convicted in January 2001 for the murder of the Forouhars. Three were sentenced to death. The other 12 received prison sentences. The authorities never showed any interest in solving the Davani case. In none of these cases were those who gave the orders ever prosecuted.Although the involvement of high-level figures has been demonstrated, there has never been any political will to bring them to justice. The suspects include Mostafa Pourmohamadi (the former justice minister), Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei (the judicial system’s current spokesman) and Ghorbanali Dorri-Najafabadi (the intelligence minister at the time of the murders), but none has ever been questioned or arrested. Only around 15 intelligence ministry operatives were convicted and given sentences ranging from three to 12 years in prison. All are now free.Impunity is one of the most important reasons for violence against journalists in Iran, and many other murders of journalists remain unsolved and unpunished, in addition to the 1998 murders of journalists and intellectuals.

first_img View post tag: Vietnam Industry news Vietnam tied a contract with Rosoboronexport for delivery of an additional 2-ship batch of Project Gepard 3.9 frigates, reports Interfax referring to Sergei Rudenko, deputy director for foreign economic affairs of JSC Zelenodolsk Shipyard. According to him, in contrast to the first two Vietnamese frigates armed with missile systems, the second pair will be “antisubmarine-oriented”.Vietnam purchased first two Project Gepard 3.9 frigates in 2006; the last one was delivered in March 2011. In Vietnamese Navy, the ships obtained names of Dinh Tien Hoang and Ly Thai To. Displacement of such frigate is 2,100 tons. She is armed with antiship missile system, one 76.2-mm and two 30-mm gun mounts. Gepard-class frigate is equipped with heliport for Ka-28 or Ka-31 helicopters.Through recent years, Vietnam has tied a number of contracts with Russia for delivery of surface ships and submarines for the national naval force. In particular, in 2005 Vietnam bought twelve Project 12418 boats and began licensed production in the fall of 2010. Vietnam purchased six Project 636 Varshavyanka diesel electric submarines from Russia in 2009 for $1.8 bln.

The state’s Democratic party chairman John Zody is calling on State Senator Jim Tomes and State Representatives Ron Bacon and Wendy McNamara to explain why Hoosier taxpayers should cover the bill for the legislative session.Zody says because GOP leaders failed to complete their work before the deadline, it’s going to cost Hoosier taxpayers. He says it will cost taxpayers $30,000, each day the lawmakers are back at the statehouse for the special session.John Zody says, “Because of the mismanagement and the incompetence of the Republican leadership in the Indiana General Assembly, Hoosiers are about to get invoiced for $30,000 or more because they’re going to have to suspend rules, and eliminated public comment and a lot of processes for this session to get done in one day. We think that’s wrong.”Lawmakers will discuss several major bills in this special session including funding school safety and tax compliance issues.last_img read more
