first_img Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today that the judge in charge of the trial of three policemen accused of the 2000 murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze decided yesterday to exclude the press and public from the hearings and not to call politicians linked to the case as witnesses. January 24, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Judge decides to hold Gongadze trial behind closed doors March 26, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today that the judge in charge of the trial of three policemen accused of the 2000 murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze decided yesterday to exclude the press and public from the hearings and not to call politicians linked to the case as witnesses.Judge Irina Grigoryeva barred journalists from the Kiev court under article 40 of the criminal code, ruling that facts revealed by the defendants could be classified. The court will be closed when the three defendants and other witnesses testify and are cross-examined, and when the court gives its verdict.“The judge recognises the highly political nature of this trial and yet refuses to grant it the required transparency,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This decision is outrageous and confirms the worst fears one could have about the outcome of the Gongadze affair.”The press freedom organisation continued: “This trial is a test for Ukraine’s young democracy and its new president, Viktor Yushchenko. He was a source of hope in the country’s advance towards more freedom. But the former government officials involved held such high positions that the identity of those who gave the orders for this horrible murder cannot be revealed.”Elected president in January 2005, Yushchenko said in March that he would make it a priority to clarify the circumstances of the murder of Gongadze, the editor of the online newspaper Ukrainska Pravda. He gave this pledge after three police officers were arrested for carrying out the murder. The trial of Valery Kostenko, Mykola Protasov and Olexander Popovitch began on 9 January but the initial hearing was adjourned after a little more than an hour when the judge ruled that the courtroom, into which only a handful of journalists could fit, was too small. The next hearing was not held until yesterday.Judge Grigoryeva yesterday also refused a request from the Gongadze family’s lawyer, Andrey Fedur, for former President Leonid Kuchma, current parliamentary speaker Volodymir Litvyn and other senior officials to be called as witnesses. Evidence has been discovered indicating that Kuchma and Litvyn could have been among those who gave the orders for Gongadze’s murder.“We urge the Ukrainian judicial authorities to allow the senior political officials implicated in this case to appear as witnesses,” Reporters Without Borders added. “We support the family’s request and its insistence that all aspects of this case be clarified.” September 7, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Ukraine News to go further News UkraineEurope – Central Asia Organisation UkraineEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media February 26, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authoritylast_img read more

first_imgKiaran McLaughlinJoe DeSantisPress ConferenceTHE MODERATOR: Congratulations to the winners of the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, Tamarkuz. We are joined by trainer Kiaran McLaughlin and Shadwell Racing manager, Joe DeSantis. Congratulations to you both, thanks for being here. Kiaran, I’d love to hear from you in your own words how this race unfolded and how you saw it.KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: Well, now all the media knows why Frosted is running in the Classic. We thought we had one good enough to win the Mile already. He didn’t break real sharp, but Mike did a great job with him settling back, and Mike’s just a great rider. He had a lot of confidence in the horse. And I was a little nervous when he didn’t break sharp, but it worked out great when the fractions were so fast by Runhappy, it was just a great trip.THE MODERATOR: Joe, it’s been a frustrating year, but it sounds like you knew you were sitting on a big one here. Can you talk about his campaign this year?JOE DESANTIS: Yeah, we brought him back, and obviously the Met Mile was the Met Mile, and Frosted was tremendous that day. We mapped out to go to Saratoga. And he ran terrific up there against could be a champion today (inaudible) and three-fifths off the track record behind Anchor Down last time, we just felt as though those efforts — he would sit on the big race, and the two-turns are what he was really excited about. He proved to us today that’s what he was looking for.THE MODERATOR: Kiaran, talk about the campaign, if you can add to that?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: Yeah, last year was a real honor to get him in America. We thank Sheikh Hamdan for that because he won the Godolphin Mile in Dubai. And now we added to it, which was great. It just took us a little while, but we stopped him through the winter and brought him back. He’s just a really neat horse. Very well balanced, great mover, and should make a nice stallion. We’re just privileged that he was in our barn.Q. This is not a homebred, so can you explain where you picked him up and how?JOE DESANTIS: He was bought at a yearling sale. It would be our farm manager, Greg Clarke, and Rick Nichols, our president, who is not here today. I just want to say he’s under the weather, and I just want to say that this is very important to Rick. I’m sure this is going to make him feel better, but that’s why he was not here today.But he was bought as a yearling and taken to Europe where he had a decent career, but when they put him on the dirt in Dubai is when we really figured out what he was about, and that’s why Sheikh Hamdan sent him back to us.Q. Kiaran, “Big Money” Mike, I know he’s ridden him before. How did you secure him for the Breeders’ Cup here today?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: We were lucky enough to get him at Saratoga. He liked the horse, finished second, and then he was at Belmont for Effinex, the next start, I believe that’s who he rode. We were able to have him that day also, and then I just contacted his agent and he was happy to hold the call, so it was worked out great. He’s a great rider.Q. Because of his familiarity, were there any pre-race instructions or were you like, hey, Mike, do your thing?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: When they drew the race, I was with him, and he was really happy with 8 of 9. He thought we’d be a little closer following, but it worked out great. No, not a lot of instruction with Mike Smith. We’re just happy to have him. I think he’s the all-time winner of the most Breeders’ Cups, isn’t he? He’s way up there. So he knows how to get the job done.Q. It’s great to see another Kentucky-bred horse, the Gunther Farms done well. But when did you first know that this horse would be of this caliber that you would take him this far?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: When it crossed the wire. We liked him, but he’s been second, third, fourth. He’s been a little bit unlucky. But he had the potential, and he had the past performances in winning the Godolphin Mile, so we’re just happy it all worked out today for him to win this very important race.Q. And if you had to guess, what do you think the next step for the horse would be?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: I have no idea. Like he said, Sheikh Hamdan, Rick Nichols will decide if he’ll run again or go to stud.I’d like to say one more thing. We’ve won three Breeders’ Cups in my career, and they’ve all been with these colors on, and it’s a very special owner and a great man to win for, and the whole team of Shadwell and everybody, it’s fabulous to be part of that team.FastScripts Transcript by ASAP Sportslast_img read more

first_imgCardiff City’s bid to sign Tommy Smith from QPR appears to have stalled.The 32-year-old forward is not in Rangers manager Mark Hughes’ first-team plans and Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay is hoping to persuade him to move to Wales.Mackay, who recently signed Heidar Helguson from the R’s and is close to capturing Matt Connolly, knows Smith well from their time together at Watford.Smith has been told he can leave Loftus Road, but by Tuesday morning he seemed no closer to deciding his future.“There’s been an enquiry from Cardiff and certainly there’s an opportunity for Tommy to go there if he wants to,” Hughes told West London Sport.“That’s been on offer for a little bit of time though and hasn’t really progressed, so I don’t know where things stand with that at this moment.”See also:Smith could be next to make Cardiff moveCampbell will not be rushed into moveFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgAs sometimes happens in a breakup, the A’s took to social media last week to diss their longtime partner, radio station KGMZ (95.7 The Game).To the best of our knowledge, neither the team nor the station ever announced the split, but it became clear Friday with a post on Twitter from the A’s. It was a five-second video clip of radio equipment being wheeled out of a room. Although the location is unknown — it appears to be a broadcast booth at the Coliseum — both the team and the station are …last_img
