RSF_en News News December 2, 2016 Four broadcast media closed arbitrarily in Benin November 7, 2020 Find out more May 4, 2021 Find out more The first victim was Radio Soleil, which the High Authority for Broadcasting and Communication (HAAC) closed on 29 November on the grounds that it was transmitting from a place 20 km away from its original location. The station’s management insists that it notified the HAAC of the change of address by letter. Radio Soleil is owned by Sébastien Adjavon, a wealthy businessmen who was an unsuccessful candidate in the March presidential election. Since then he has been the target of an investigation for alleged drug trafficking. On 30 Novembre, the HAAC shut down three TV stations – Sikka TV, Eden TV and E-télé – on similar grounds. Adjavon is also the owner of Sikka TV, while Eden TV is owned by his former campaign manager, now a parliamentarian. E-télé supports former President Boni Yayi. The HAAC did not warn any of these media outlets in advance that they were to be shut down and gave them no opportunity to address the problems cited as grounds for their closure. “The closure of these four media outlets is out of all proportion to the bureaucratic irregularities of which they are accused,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Africa desk at RSF. “It is hard not to regard these closures as politically-motivated. We urge the authorities not to embark on the road of media censorship and harassment, especially as Benin has until now been cited as an example of respect for media freedom.” Benin is ranked 78th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Advertisement by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up IRISH Cement is to seek planning permission to replace fossil fuels at its Castlemungret works with alternative fuels from materials such as rubber from used tyres as part of a €10 million development plan.The company plans to replace fossil fuel, used on site for cement clinker production, with alternative fuels to improve the sustainability of the Limerick operations, where 80 people are employed.Limerick is currently the only cement plant in Ireland not licensed to use alternative fuels.Used in cement plants across Europe for over 35 years, alternative fuels have also been deployed at Irish Cement’s plant at Platin in County Meath for the last five years.Alternative fuels are derived from residual waste materials that have a useful energy value which can be recovered safely and recycled in the cement manufacturing process.Locally sourced alternative fuels account for almost 50 per cent of the fuels used to fire Irish Cement’s kilns at Platin. According to Irish Cement, the very high temperatures inside the kilns (1450°C) mean that these fuels are completely combusted and then recycled into the final cement product, with no ash or emissions released into the atmosphere.“Limerick is Ireland’s oldest cement plant and its 77 years of operations has been sustained by continuous investment in new technologies and processes throughout the decades,” Limerick plant manager Pat Robinson explained.“After a recent period of reduced demand, production is once again on the increase for domestic and export markets – but this fuel replacement programme will be key to sustaining this growth,” he added.Mr Robinson believes that the opportunity to reduce dependence on imported fossil fuels will prove critical to Irish Cement’s ability to operate competitively and sustain jobs in the future.“The replacement of fossil fuels is not only good for the environment but also good for our business. In advance of our planning application to Limerick County Council, we have started an engagement process with our neighbours and local stakeholders to discuss the project and its importance for the future of Limerick works,” he told the Limerick Post.This will include, amongst other elements, the distribution of a project booklet and an opportunity for local people to discuss the project with Irish Cement personnel.In the coming weeks Irish Cement will submit a planning application to Limerick County Council and also seek a review of its Environmental Licence from the EPA to permit the use of alternative fuels and raw materials in its processes.

aijohn784/iStock(POCAHONTAS, Ark.) — A former Arkansas state senator was reportedly found dead inside her home this week, and authorities are investigating her death as a homicide.The body of a woman was discovered Tuesday night at Linda Collins-Smith’s residence in the city of Pocahontas, some 145 miles northeast of the state capital, Little Rock. The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office said its deputies responded to the scene and then asked Arkansas State Police to assist in what is being treated as a homicide investigation.“The condition of the body prevented any immediate positive identification,” Randolph County Sheriff Kevin Bell said at a press conference Wednesday. “The body has been sent for an autopsy to determine the positive identification and cause of death.Authorities wouldn’t say if Collins-Smith is the victim, and a judge has issued a gag order sealing the documents and statements obtained by police.However, Collins-Smith’s former press secretary, Ken Yang, told Little Rock ABC affiliate KATV-TV that she was found shot to death inside her home and her body was wrapped in some sort of blanket. Neighbors apparently reported hearing gunshots a day or two before her body was discovered, Yang told KATV.Politicians on both sides of the aisle expressed shock and sadness at the news of the death of their Republican colleague.“I’m both stunned and saddened by the death of former State Senator Linda Collins-Smith,” Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said in a statement via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. “She was a good person who served in the public arena with passion and conviction. The First Lady and I extend our deepest sympathies to her family and friends during this difficult time.”“Today, we learned of the untimely death of former Senator Linda Collins Smith. She was a passionate voice for her people and a close member of our Republican family,” the Republican Party of Arkansas said in a statement via Twitter on Tuesday evening. “We are praying for her loved ones during this difficult time.”“To so many of us, Senator Linda Collins-Smith was more than just a colleague,” the Democratic Party of Arkansas said in a statement via Twitter on Tuesday night. “She was a friend and warm person. We are stunned and saddened to hear of her death. Please join us in prayer as we remember her family and her loved ones.”Collins-Smith, who was a member of the Democratic Party until 2011, lost to James Sturch in the Republican Party primary for the 19th District in May 2018 by fewer than 600 votes.

Previous Article Next Article Asda’s horror at illegal workforceOn 27 Jun 2000 in Personnel Today Retail giant Asda said it is horrified by the allegations in last week’s edition of the BBC’s Panorama programme that one of its suppliers used illegal immigrants as cheap labour.The programme was screened in the same week as 58 immigrant workers from China were found dead in transit to the UK in a cargo container.An Asda spokesman said, “We take this issue very seriously and were horrified to find a supplier had been using illegal workers. We immediately carried out an ethical audit of our supplier Fenmarc, which highlighted some concerns.“Those are being addressed and we are working with our suppliers to put them right. “The suppliers are implementing best practice – by insisting on seeing original documents, not copies and by working with the immigration service to understand how to spot fake documents.”The Recruitment and Employment Confederation voiced fears last week that unlawful labour has penetrated to the core of the UK economy, particularly in the industrial sectors.
