MyanmarAsia – Pacific RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Help by sharing this information RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is today releasing a report entitled “The Burmese Spring” about the rapid progress that freedom of information has made in Burma, but also about the limits of this progress and the dangers it faces.The international community is witnessing an unprecedented democratic transition in this Southeast Asian country after half a century of military dictatorship. But, as things stand, the possibility of the reforms being perverted cannot be ruled out.For 25 years, Reporters Without Borders was on a blacklist that prevented it from visiting Burma. Imprisoned journalists such as Win Tin, one of the symbols of the fight for freedom of information, and Democratic Voice of Burma’s video-journalists could only be supported from a distance during this period.Reporters Without Borders was finally taken off the blacklist on 28 August 2012, allowing it to visit Burma and observe the initial results of government reforms easing restrictions on the media.“There has been historic progress for the media and the ground covered by the government has been striking, as evidenced in the recently announced revision of the repressive laws affecting the print media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The release of imprisoned journalists and the end of prior censorship represent the start of a new era for Burma’s journalists.“The information ministry’s announcement on 28 December that the publication of privately-owned dailies will be permitted from next April is evidence of a commitment to pursue the reforms. But we are now waiting for these promises, especially the creation of independent dailies, to be realized.”Although censorship has been lifted, the censorship bureau, called the Press Scrutiny and Registration Division (PSRD), has still not been disbanded and still wields a great deal of repressive power because it can still suspend any weekly that publishes “forbidden” content.In the absence of a law providing the media with effective protection, there is a real danger of journalists censoring themselves after decades of government censorship. Officials have not shed their repressive tendencies, as witnessed by the many legal proceedings against privately-owned weeklies in 2012.The report draws attention to the dangers of media sector transformation without an appropriate legal framework, to the specific problems of exile media that have returned to Burma, and to the lack of adequate media coverage of the humanitarian crisis in the western province of Arakan.Reporters Without Borders calls on the Burmese government to curb lawsuits against the media and to support the rapid repeal of repressive laws and adoption of a media law that respects freedom of information.It encourages the Burmese media to increase their interaction with the various journalists’ associations and unions in order to revitalize the media sector and defend its interests.And finally, Reporters Without Borders urges the international community to condition its assistance on respect for fundamental freedoms, especially freedom of information.Cover © James MacKay / Enigma Images May 26, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture News to go further News May 12, 2021 Find out more Organisation May 31, 2021 Find out more January 17, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 How long will the Burmese media spring last ?

Work-related stress affects almost half of UK workforceOn 1 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today In Almost half of UK workers suffer from stress, and 13 per cent have takentime off work as a result, according to a study by vocational qualificationssupplier City & Guilds. The survey of more than 1,000 employees found that 43 per cent suffered fromwork-related stress. Of these, 67 per cent blamed their workload, while 12 percent felt it was because of being given extra responsibilities withoutappropriate training. Of those affected by stress, 55 per cent suffered sleepless nights as aresult. A quarter of respondents said they would take a pay cut if it meantless pressure. One fifth (21 per cent) battled with depression, and a tenthsuffered a loss of libido. The survey – conducted in February but published in May – found that youngeremployees were most likely to blame a lack of training. Eighty-three per centof people aged under 30 said that additional training would make them betterable to cope with their job, compared with 55 per cent across all age groups. “Staff are required to possess a diverse range of skills,” saidChris Humphries, director general of City & Guilds. “This places hugepressure on them. It’s vital that companies invest in training to ensure theiremployees are fully prepared for the additional responsibilities theyface.” Meanwhile, a study by the Engineering Employers’ Federation (EEF) has saidthat one in three manufacturers believe long-term sickness absence is rising,and now accounts for 80 per cent of the total time lost from work. Yet managersfeel ill-equipped to deal with getting staff back to work. The EEF has published a new guide, called Fit for Work, to help firmsmaximise attendance. www.eef.org.ukBy Nic Paton Related posts:No related photos.
Oriel’s barman has been removed by the college, provoking an outcry from the student body, writes Andrea Televantos.Chris Howells, whose contract was ended last week, said that he had a “professional conflict” with the college steward, and his dismissal had been described as an attempt to “stop fun” by students.Mr Howells was employed on the terms of what he described as a “probationary contract”, and said that the official reason for his removal was that the college “chose not to extend it”.Students have claimed that the college terminated Howell’s employment because he was seen to be too lenient towards students. “They were looking for an excuse to get rid of him,” said one student who wished to remain anonymous, “they were being unreasonable. They’re basically trying to stop fun.”According to student Nick Jones, Howells also attracted blame for the mess left behind after a college bop. “ENTZ didn’t organise it [the bop] well enough”, Jones said, “it was nothing to do with him.”Oriel students allege that the source of friction was the college steward, Jean Medd, who is responsible for the bar staff. She is said to have argued with Howell over him not taking sufficient measures to control student behaviour in the college bar. Mr Howells commented that there was a “certain professional conflict” between him and Medd and in addition a “mutual dislike”.Medd’s policies regarding the student bar have aroused student anger before when she banned staff and students from drinking together in 2004, breaking, in the words of one porter, “a long tradition of porters drinking with students.” According to the porter, she gave “no reason” for doing so, despite pressure from the JCR and staff.
