Email Address Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter BGC rolls out festive safer gambling campaign The Betting and Gaming Council (BGC), the trade association for the UK gambling industry, has launched a new multimedia campaign to promote safer gambling over the festive period.The Limits are Good campaign will focus on men aged between 18-34, with the aim of encouraging them to set deposit limits and not overindulge on betting at Christmas.The campaign will feature a series of short digital films and associated content, each featuring a humorous but thought-provoking social situation where limits are good. Films are now live YouTube and also will be rolled out across various operator channels and in retail locations over the coming weeks.Throughout the campaign, the BGC will promote a number of new limit-setting tools either launched or redesigned by operators in recent months. Data for the take-up of these tools will be used to help track the success of the campaign.The BGC will also monitor the number of visits and visitors to deposit limit pages both online and in operator mobile apps.“We set limits on what we do every day and betting and gaming should be no different,” BGC chairman Brigid Simmonds said. “Over the festive period with so many important sporting events, if people wish to have a bet it’s important not to lose track of how long you spend or the amount you have staked. “Tools are available online and in betting shops and casinos to help you set your time and spend limits and we encourage everyone to use these. “Gillian Wilmot, chair of the Senet Group, added: “This campaign draws on real-life gambling behaviours to promote tools which help gamblers stay within self-determined limits. “Our behavioural research identified that most gamblers maintain a range of informal strategies to maintain control of their gambling. By formalising limit-setting tools, operators can do more to empower their customers to gamble safely.”The new campaign comes after the BGC last week called for further education for young people and their parents to help combat underage and illegal gambling.The BGC was responding to a University of Bristol report, which, commissioned by GambleAware, claimed UK young people will have developed regular patterns of play and gambling habits by the age of 20, with more than half of 17 year-olds gambling in some form.

This formation, along with the tall façade, makes each shop visible from the street, attracting customers. Open plan walkways allow for natural ventilation, eliminating the need for air conditioning.

Two Petit-Goâve radio journalists arbitrarily detained

first_img Journalist shot dead amid anti-government protests in Haiti June 29, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two Petit-Goâve radio journalists arbitrarily detained Follow the news on Haïti Another journalist murdered in Haiti HaïtiAmericas November 14, 2019 Find out more HaïtiAmericas Organisation Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts October 11, 2019 Find out morecenter_img News to go further Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice News News June 11, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Ernst Joseph and Wolf “Duralph” François, hosts of the programme “They said it” on Radio Prévention in the southwestern town of Petit-Goâve, who have been detained ever since their arrest during an appearance at the public prosecutor’s office on 22 June.According to Petit-Goâve public prosecutor Alix Civil, they are charged with defamation, disturbing public order and destruction of public property. Officials have confiscated the transmitter and other equipment from the radio station, which is owned by Joseph.Guyteau Mathieu, the secretary-general of the Les Palmes Regional Media Association, told Reporters Without Borders that Joseph and François went to the prosecutor’s office after getting a summons in response to a complaint by several civil society representatives and local officials, including mayor Justal Ronald, about information and opinions voiced during their programmes.A group of supporters accompanied the journalists to the prosecutor’s office, while the mayor arrived with his own group of supporters.Clashes ensued, stones were thrown at the prosecutor’s office and people were injured. The prosecutor ordered the arrest of Joseph and François while they were in his office. Joseph Guyler C. Delva, the secretary-general of SOS Journalistes, said the prosecutor apparently blamed them for the actions of some of their supporters.A justice of the peace placed a seal over the entrance to Radio Prévention the same day after removing its equipment in a police car. Joseph and François have been transferred to the main police station in the Port-au-Prince suburb of Carrefour.Contrary to the general trend in the Americas, Haitian legislation still provides for jail sentences in cases of defamation. This violates international media freedom standards and the jurisprudence set by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.Aside from the defamation proceedings, the other arbitrary charges against these two journalists constitute an abuse of authority and a form of censorship. As well as their immediate and unconditional release, Reporters Without Borders calls for an impartial investigation and the return of the confiscated equipment.Three other journalists, Eddy Jackson Alexis, Josias Pierre and Jacques Innocent, are currently facing defamation charges which were brought against them by Télévision Nationale d’Haïti director-general Pradel Henriquez after they were fired in April.

Taking note of the punishment of imprisonment of up to three years prescribed therein, the court observed:”It cannot be given the widest meaning so as to fall foul of the requirement of reasonableness which is a constitutional mandate. Clause (b) of Section 153A, therefore, has to be read accordingly to satisfy the constitutional mandate. We would interpret the words ‘public tranquillity’ in clause (b) would mean ordre publique a French term that means absence of insurrection, riot, turbulence or crimes of violence and would also include all acts which will endanger the security of the State, but not acts which disturb only serenity, and are covered by the third and widest circle of law and order(Paragraph 64). The court also added that ‘Public order’ also includes acts of local significance embracing a variety of conduct destroying or menacing public order. The bench observed:”Public Order in clause (2) to Article 19 nor the statutory provisions make any distinction between the majority and minority groups with reference to the population of the particular area though as we have noted above this may be of some relevance. When we accept the principle of local significance, as a sequitur we must also accept that majority and minority groups could have, in a given case, reference to a local area.”Intention necessaryThe bench noted the Calcutta High Court view ( in P.K. Chakravarty v. The King ) that the intention as to whether or not the person accused was promoting enmity is to be collected from the internal evidence of the words themselves, but this is not to say that other evidence cannot be looked into. It said:”Likewise, while examining the question of likelihood to promote ill feelings the facts and circumstances of that time must be taken into account. Something must be known of the kind of people to whom the words are addressed. Words will be generally decisive, especially in those cases where the intention is expressly declared if the words used naturally, clearly or indubitably have such tendency. Then, such intention can be presumed as it is the natural result of the words used. However, the words used and their true meaning are never more than evidence of intention, and it is the real intention of the person charged that is the test. Similarly, the Lahore High Court in Devi Sharan Sharma had observed that intention can be deduced from internal evidence of the words as well as the general policy of the paper in which the concerned article was published, consideration of the person for whom it was written and the state of feeling between the two communities involved. In case the words used in the article are likely to produce hatred, they must be presumed to be intended to have that effect unless the contrary is shown.The court noted that the Bombay High Court in Gopal Vinayak Godse v. Union of India has observed that the intention to promote enmity or hatred is not a necessary ingredient of the offence and that it is enough to show that the language of the writing is of the nature calculated to promote feelings of enmity or hatred, for a person must be presumed to intend the natural consequences of his act. In this context, the court said: “The view expressed by the Bombay High Court in Gopal Vinayak Godse lays considerable emphasis on the words itself, but the view expressed in P.K. Chakravarthy and Devki Sharma take a much broader and a wider picture which, in our opinion, would be the right way to examine whether an offence under Section 153A, clauses (a) and (b) had been committed. The ordinary reasonable meaning of the matter complained of may be either the literal meaning of the published matter or what is implied in that matter or what is inferred from it. A particular imputation is capable of being conveyed means and implies it is reasonably so capable and should not be strained, forced or subjected to utterly unreasonable interpretation”(Paragraph 62)”We would also hold that deliberate and malicious intent is necessary and can be gathered from the words itself satisfying the test of top of Clapham omnibus, the who factor person making the comment, the targeted and non targeted group, the context and occasion factor- the time and circumstances in which the words or speech was made, the state of feeling between the two communities, etc. and the proximate nexus with the protected harm to cumulatively satiate the test of ‘hate speech’. Good faith’ and ‘no legitimate purpose’ test would apply, as they are important in considering the intent factor”(Paragrapg 62)In Para 49 of the judgment, the bench explains the test of top of clapham omnibus as follows:”The test is, as they say in English Law, – ‘the man on the top of a Clapham omnibus’. Therefore, to ensure maximisation of free speech and not create ‘free speaker’s burden’, the assessment should be from the perspective of the top of the reasonable member of the public, excluding and disregarding sensitive, emotional and atypical. It is almost akin or marginally lower than the prudent man’s test. The test of reasonableness involves recognition of boundaries within which reasonable responses will fall, and not identification of a finite number of acceptable reasonable responses. Further, this does not mean exclusion of particular circumstances as frequently different persons acting reasonably will respond in different ways in the context and circumstances. This means taking into account peculiarities of the situation and occasion and whether the group is likely to get offended. At the same time, a tolerant society is entitled to expect tolerance as they are bound to extend to others.The court also briefly explained Section 295 and 505 of the Code as follows:Section 295A of the Penal Code encapsulates of all three elements, namely, it refers to the content-based element when it refers to words either spoken or written, or by signs or visible representation or otherwise. However, it does not on the basis of content alone makes a person guilty of the offence. The first portion refers to deliberate and malicious intent on the part of the maker to outrage religious feeling of any class of citizens of India. The last portion of Section 295A refers to the harm-based element, that is, insult or attempt to insult religions or religious belief of that class. Similarly, subsection (2) to Section 505 refers to a person making publishing or circulating any statement or report containing rumour or alarming news. Thereafter, it refers to the intent of the person which should be to create or promote and then refers to the harm-based element, that is, likely to create or promote on the ground of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, cast, etc., feeling of enmity, hatred or ill-will between different religions, racial language, religious groups or castes or communities, etc.The court noted that clauses (a) and (b) to sub-section (1) to Section 153A of the Penal Code use the words ‘promotes’ and ‘likely’ respectively. Similarly, Section 295-A uses the word ‘attempts’ and sub-section (2) to Section 505 uses the words ‘create or promote’. “Word ‘likely’ as explained above, in our opinion, convey the meaning, that the chance of the event occurring should be real and not fanciful or remote.”, the bench observed. It further said:”In the context of ‘hate speech’, including the offences related to promoting disharmony or feelings of enmity, hatred or ill-will, and insulting the religion or the religious beliefs, it would certainly require the actual utterance of words or something more than thought which would constitute the content. Without actual utterance etc. it would be mere thought, and thoughts without overt act is not punishable. In the case of ‘publication’, again a mere thought would not be actionable, albeit whether or not there is an attempt to ‘publish’ would depend on facts. The impugned act should be more than mere preparation and reasonably proximate to the consummation of the offence, which has been interrupted. The question of intent would be relevant. On the question of the harm’s element, same test and principle, as applicable in the case of ‘likely’ would apply, except for the fact that for intervening reasons or grounds public disorder or violence may not have taken place”(Paragraph 68)CASE: AMISH DEVGAN vs. UNION OF INDIA [WRIT PETITION (CRIMINAL) NO. 160 OF 2020] CORAM: Justices AM Khanwilkar and Sanjiv KhannaAlso from the judgment : Hate Speech Repudiates Right To Equality In A Polity Committed To Pluralism : Supreme CourtPersons Of Influence Have To Be More Responsible In Speech : Supreme Court In Amish Devgan’s CaseClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentNext Storylast_img read more
