Arrest of KAMI activists criticized as attempt to suppress freedom of expression

first_imgKAMI’s Medan affiliates were transferred to Jakarta to be investigated by the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim), he added.In a statement made available to The Jakarta Post on Wednesday, KAMI condemned the arrest of its affiliates and said they perceived it as “repressive action” that was “politically motivated”.KAMI also criticized the police’s statement as prejudiced.“KAMI considers the announcement made by National Police spokesman Awi Setiyono on the arrests as having elements of framing [public] opinion, tendentious overgeneralizing and of prematurely revealing conclusions in an ongoing investigation,” KAMI said in the statement, which was signed by its co-founders Din Syamsudin, Gatot Nurmantyo and Rochmat Wahab.They also claimed there were strong indicators that the mobile phones of the KAMI executives had been hacked in recent days.Other activists have been quick to condemn the arrests, saying that they reflect the authorities’ efforts to stifle criticism of the government relating to the controversial passage of the omnibus bill on job creation into law.“These arrests were made to spread fear in those who criticize the passage of the Job Creation Law,” said Usman Hamid, executive director of Amnesty International Indonesia, in a statement.“Additionally, these arrests have shown that freedom of expression in the country is under threat and that it can be seen as an effort to intimidate the opposition and those who criticize the ruling regime.”Usman also expressed concern that the arrests had been made under the allegation of violating the ITE Law. He also called on the state to stop discriminating against its critics and that it fully respects the human rights of all people.The KAMI arrests are just the latest in a wave of similar incidents to occur in Indonesia over the past year.In April, independent researcher Ravio Parta was briefly detained by the police following an allegation of public incitement through his WhatsApp account, which was believed to be hacked. Ravio had turned heads for his vocal criticism of the government, including in its poor handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.Read also: Government critic faces incitement charges after WhatsApp hackedMass media critical of the government have also found themselves in the crosshairs of unknown assailants.Tempo.co, part of the Tempo Media Group that also publishes the Koran Tempo daily and the Tempo weekly magazine, as well as popular news portal tirto.id, have both been inundated by cyberattacks after publishing reports critical of the government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.According to Amnesty International Indonesia’s records, there have been at least 49 cases of alleged intimidation and hacking of government critics since February.Others still have noted the underhanded tactics that the government and the legislature have employed to dampen criticism of the Job Creation Law, which was widely criticized for being rushed without giving fair and adequate space for the public to supervise or take part in crucial discussions.Institute for Policy Research and Advocacy (ELSAM) deputy director Wahyudi Djafar also said he believed the KAMI arrests were carried out in an attempt to silence government critics.“These arrests, in the context of freedom of expression, were carried out as if [authorities] wanted to create a chilling effect to [dissuade] the public from expressing their political [standpoint] for fear of incarceration,” he said.“One of the biggest forms of threat to the ‘control’ function of [supervising] state transparency and accountability is this shackling of freedom of expression. These kinds of practices should best be avoided by the government.”Topics : Read also: Police arrest eight KAMI activists for alleged hate speech linked to jobs law protests“[They] are alleged to have spread hate speech discriminating against certain groups and incited protests against the Job Creation Law that ended [in rioting],” said National Police spokesperson Brig Gen. Awi Setiyono on Tuesday.As evidence, the police have confiscated records of their conversations over social media.Awi said the eight detainees faced charges of violating the second paragraph of Article 45 of the Electronic Information and Transactions (ITE) Law and/or Article 160 of the Criminal Code (KUHP). The ITE Law provision carries a maximum punishment of six years’ imprisonment and a Rp 1 billion (US$67,950) fine, while the KUHP provision carries up to six years’ imprisonment. The recent arrest of eight people affiliated with the Save Indonesia Coalition (KAMI) over allegations of spreading hate speech and violating a sweeping online censorship law has raised concerns about the erosion of freedom of expression in the country, rights activists have said.The figures were nabbed in a string of police operations in the capital Jakarta and in Medan, North Sumatra between Oct. 10 and 13.The police detained KAMI executives Syahganda Nainggolan, Jumhur Hidayat, Anton Permana and Kingkin Anida in Jakarta, while in Medan, law enforcers arrested the group’s local chapter chairman Khairil Amri, along with members Juliana, Devi and Wahyu Rasari Putri.last_img read more

Can Lampard take Chelsea to the top?

first_imgThere’s no getting away from the fact that the manager’s revolving door has been getting good use at Stamford Bridge for the last fifteen years. Ever since Jose Mourinho started his first stint at the club in 2004 no less than 14 different people have been appointed. In terms of nationalities it has also been a veritable United Nations with representatives of Portugal, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Brazil, Israel and England.But now, one of Chelsea’s own is in the hot seat – and football followers everywhere are waiting to see how it’s going to work out for Frank Lampard.He certainly joins the club with a huge amount of goodwill behind him. After all, he’s the highest scorer for Chelsea of all time with 211 goals to his name and 429 appearances, second only to John Terry. He’s also known to be a man who has the ear of Roman Abramovich, for the moment at least. But, as so many of his predecessors have discovered, this is a situation that can quickly change.A step upHowever, amidst all this positivity there still remains a nagging doubt that Lampard may not quite have the experience to improve on last season’s 3rd place Premier League finish and Europa League victory as well as making the team a dead cert for fans of sports betting.After all, he’s only had a single season’s experience in charge of a club at Derby County. Having taken over from Gary Rowett he guided the team to the play-offs losing to Aston Villa and achieved a 6th place finish. His win rate was 42.11%, a little lower than Rowett’s 43.1%. Similarly, where the 2017-18 season saw the Rams picking up 75 points, under Lampard’s stewardship the total was 74.While these may not seem like amazing credentials for Premier League success there are a number of reasons why many are predicting that Lampard could be just the shot in the arm that the club needs.Youth v ExperienceIronically, the transfer ban imposed on the club for signing overseas under 18 players means that Lampard is poised to create a far more youthful side. This is something that managers like Mourinho, Sarri and Conte proved reluctant to do, despite the club having a very strong youth academy. Among the names being mentioned are the 19 year old right back Reece James who had a very successful season on loan to Wigan, 21 year old striker Tammy Abraham and even goalkeeper Karlo Ziger, 18, who is poised to take the place of the recently released Rob Green. As to whether this will be another case of Alan Hansen having to eat his words, we’ll just have to wait and see.So far we’ve only had a number of pre-season friendlies to see how the Lampard influence has started to play out and it has to be said that the signs are certainly encouraging. For example there have been victories over St Patrick’s Athletic at one end of the scale and Barcelona at the other. With Tammy Abraham already showing his scoring ability against the Spanish club here’s hoping that this could be a premonition of what could happen if the two teams come up against each other in the Champions League.The Hazard hazardOne of the biggest issues that Lampard could well have to confront will be the huge Eden Hazard-sized hole that’s been left following his departure to Real Madrid. All the youngsters in the world would have a hard task replacing the Belgian so Lampard will also be looking to the more experienced members of the squad like Willian, Pedro and Olivier Giroud to up their games, not to mention their scoring records.He’ll also have to deal with bigger egos than he’ll have managed at Derby. For example, there are reports that Callum Hudson-Odoi is demanding Hazard’s vacated No 10 shirt while some feel that, by rights, it should be Willan’s.So it’s undoubtedly going to be a tricky baptism of fire for Lampard. But with the natural goodwill that’s afforded to him by club and fans alike, plus the dogged determination that served him so well as a player, the signs are all looking good.

The Real Reason Your Buyer is Deep Into the Buying Process

first_imgWant to know why your dream client is deep into their buying process when they decide to explore working with a new partner?Surprise! It’s not the Internet!If you think your dream client is spending their day on the Internet researching your product, service, or solution, you are incorrect. Your dream client is buried alive trying to produce the business results they are charged with producing.If you believe that your dream client is through the phase of the buying cycle where they begin to recognize their needs because they spent their day with their face all aglow from their laptop screen, you are mistaken.If you assume that they are deep into identifying the options available to them before they ever speak to a salesperson because the Internet replace the need for a salesperson, you are suffering from a delusion brought on by your spending too much time on the Internet and buying the hype.The primary reason your dream client is deep into the buying process when they decide to cast aside the status quo is because this isn’t the first time they have bought what you sell.First Time at the Rodeo . . . NotThe reason your dream client is so deep into the buying process when you happen upon them is because they have already purchased what it is that you sell. They have probably made the decision to buy more than once or twice.They know what they need because they have been using what you sell for a long time, and they believe they know what needs to change in order to get better results. They also know what a lot of their options look like. Not because they have spent their time on the Internet, but because your competitors have relentlessly called on them over the years, trying to nurture relationships. They have seen what’s available.If your dream client is 60+ percent through their buying cycle before they first communicate with a salesperson, it’s because they have some experience buying what you sell. This ain’t their first time at the rodeo.How You SellThis whole “Internet” thing seems to have some legs. There is no reason to pretend that it’s a fad or that it’s going away. You and your company should have a killer presence on the web, one that helps you acquire clients.But there isn’t any reason to pretend that there isn’t value to be created for your dream clients early in the process unless that value is housed on the Internet. This is criminal negligence.If you are going to win your dream clients, you need to get in front of their buying process.Getting in front of your client’s buying cycle means you prospect and nurture relationships. It means you need to help shape their needs, and you need to share ideas before your dream client is ever dissatisfied (creating value before claiming any). When you are out in front of an opportunity, you have the relationships, you are known, and you have a record of being a value creator.When your dream client decides to move, they are going to look at your website for sure. But you are already going to be invited in for the plain and simple fact that you haven’t gone away at any time during the three years they exclusively used your competitor.The real reason your dream client is deep into their buying process before they ever speak to a salesperson is because it’s not their first time buying. Sell like this is true and don’t fall behind the buying cycle. Instead, lead it.QuestionsIs the reason your clients are deep into their buying process because they have the Internet as a research tool? Or is it because they have bought enough times to be a sophisticated buyer?How does the fact that your buyer has some ideas about what they need when they decided to change effect the decisions you make about how to sell?If you really want your dream client to try something new, innovative, and disruptive, at what stage of the buying cycle do you want to approach them with your ideas?

Maoists arrest AP announces Rs 8 lakh reward for Maha ATS

first_imgMumbai: The Andhra Pradesh government has announced a reward of Rs 8 lakh for the Maharashtra Anti- Terrorism Squad (ATS) team which arrested seven Maoists last year, an official said on Wednesday. The state ATS in January last year raided some eastern suburbs here and arrested seven Maoists of the Golden Corridor Committee, which was formed to spread their ideology in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Later, during further investigation, the ATS arrested one more rebel, an official said. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ Maoist leader Krishna Lingayya Ghoshka alias Venugopalan, who was wanted by Andhra Pradesh police in connection with a case in 2012, was among those arrested. The Maharashtra government recently received a communication from Andhra Pradesh that there was a reward of Rs 8 lakh on Venugopalan, an official said. Appreciating the probe carried by the Maharashtra ATS, the AP government subsequently announced the reward of Rs 8 lakh for the investigation team, he said. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K The reward amount along with an appreciation letter was, accordingly, sent by the intelligence department at Hyderabad to Maharashtra Director General of Police, he said.

Mens basketball The only change after Ohio States win over Wisconsin confidence

Ohio State junior forward Jae’Sean Tate converts a layup as he was fouled in the first half against Wisconsin on Feb. 23 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won 83-73. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Assistant Sports DirectorThe will or drive of a team is rooted in self belief. Without a belief or a vision, a team cannot achieve its goals.For a while, the Ohio State men’s basketball team didn’t have a vision, it didn’t have a moment that could spring a successful run as the season grows nye. Well, now OSU has both.The Buckeyes handily defeated the 16th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers at home Thursday night, 83-73, in their most complete game this season. Four players were in double figures, the bench scored 32 points and as a team, OSU outrebounded the Badgers by 13 and shot 63 percent (10-for-16) from 3-point range.All of that happened against the fourth best defense in the country.The players — sophomore guard C.J. Jackson in particular, who had a career-high 18 points Thursday — had been saying throughout a mentally taxing conference season that they believed there run of consecutive wins was just around the corner. Wisconsin might be the start of that, but that doesn’t necessarily mean OSU’s predicament has changed. The Buckeyes will likely still need to win the Big Ten tournament to make the NCAA Tournament, but at the very least, OSU finally has proof it can win games against top competition.“I feel like everybody was on the same page (on Thursday). We played hard. It seemed like we couldn’t miss,” junior forward Jae’Sean Tate said. “If we play like this the rest of the time and in the Big Ten tournament, I feel like we can win.”That type of language hadn’t been heard since the beginning of the season when winning the conference was seen as an attainable goal. Yes, the Buckeyes said things like, “There’s still a long way to go,” and “Anything can happen” after losses, but maybe what OSU needed was the reality of winning a game that many didn’t believe it had a prayer in.So it begs the question, why can’t OSU always play like this?“I wish we could (always play like this) and for now on I hope we can,” Tate said. “We just got to build from it.”The game was equally important for OSU coach Thad Matta, who has been dealt an unprecedented amount of criticism this year. The 13-year OSU coach was already the most winningest coach in school history and became the most tenured coach in school history on Thursday night.He has not been one to ever focus, or truly care, about what outsiders say, but there’s no denying that critics will think twice about scolding the 13-year OSU coach after the Wisconsin win.“I’m sure there’s a lot of people that wouldn’t be pissed off if I didn’t come back (tomorrow),” Matta said. “But I say that from a standpoint of I guess that’s a tremendous feat, but I kind of like the most wins more than the most games to be honest with you.”While nothing on the winning side has come naturally to the Buckeyes this season, they had the answers on Thursday night. Each answer paved the path to success. There remains a long way to go for them, but the Buckeyes saw what their best looks like and that could be a motivator with two games remaining before the conference tournament.“We haven’t seen it a whole lot,” Matta said. “Everybody sort of did there part. When you’re making shots, it probably helps your cause … I hope these guys got a good taste of what it feels like to win a game.” read more
