Voluntary organisations lack confidence in Criminal Records Bureau AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis According to a report from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), the difficulties and cost of accessing criminal records checks experienced by voluntary organisations has left them with little confidence in the troubled Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).NCVO’s survey of voluntary organisations, found that five out of ten respondents rated the new criminal records checks system as ‘very poor’. The most common complaints were costsof volunteer checks of up to £15 and delays and mistakes by the CRB, the new agency responsible for issuing criminal record checks. Advertisement The current charges are the result of the CRB’s failure to cover registered umbrella bodies’ administration costs. Organisations have to go through one of these registered bodies or register themselves in order to access thechecks. Published this week, NCVO’s CRB consultation report recommends that the Government provide proper funding for a network of these registered umbrella bodies. The report suggests that more Local Authorities could act as umbrellas themselves for charities and community groups operating intheir area.“Voluntary organisations have an extreme lack of confidence in the CRB,” said Campbell Robb, Director of Public Policy at NCVO. “Despite the Government’s promises, in reality volunteers’ checks are not free and many organisations cannot even locate an affordable registered umbrella body in their area. These difficulties may be deterring potential volunteers from engaging in voluntary work altogether. The Government cannot afford to ignore this new evidence of the CRB’s problems.”The survey was conducted online and there were 110respondents: 33 were national organisations, 58 local. NCVO’s online consultation on the Criminal Records Bureau ran from 9 July 2002 to 31 December 2002.

News Receive email alerts HondurasAmericas News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Radio Globo and Canal 36 television, two stations that have been the main media opponents of the 28 June coup d’état, were allowed to resume broadcasting on 19 October, three and a half weeks after the de facto government used a decree suspending civil liberties to close them down and confiscate their equipment.Sources at Radio Globo, which had managed to keep operating as a clandestine web radio, nonetheless said the station has had to censor itself since it resumed broadcasting. At the same time, Radio Cadena Voces (RCV), a station owned by a coup supporter, has dropped three programmes hosted by women’s groups that allowed government opponents to speak on the air.“Neither the official lifting of the 28 September state of siege nor the resumption of broadcasting by Radio Globo and Canal 36 means that the rule of law has been restored in Honduras,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Decree 124-2009, a measure published in the official gazette on 7 October, allows the authorities to suspend any programme or media ‘fomenting social anarchy’ and, without saying so openly, is targeted at those that oppose the coup.”The press freedom organisation added: “This provision constitutes a real threat to pluralism, an incentive to self-censorship and an additional mechanism for polarising the media and public opinion. The situation is all the more disturbing now that the dialogue attempt between deposed President Manuel Zelaya’s emissaries and the de facto government has collapsed.”The day that Radio Globo and Canal 36 resumed broadcasting, a Honduran freelance journalist told Reporters Without Borders that IVOSA, the company that operates RCV, had decided on 16 October to drop three RCV programmes that were presented by feminist organisations. They were “Tiempo de hablar,” presented by the Women’s Rights Centre (CDM), “La Burallanga,” presented by the Women’s Study Centre-Honduras (CEM-H) and “Entre Chonas,” presented by the “Visitación Padilla” Women’s Committee.Reporters Without Borders has obtained copies of INVOSA documents that endorse the withdrawal of the first two of these programmes on the basis of Decree 124-2009 provisions combating “attacks on constitutional order.” INVOSA is owned by former President Ricardo Maduro Joest, whose conservative National Party backed Zelaya’s ouster in June.

News News BelarusEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” Reporters Without Borders has condemned a crackdown against the country’s top selling newspaper, the independent Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta (BDG).The Belarus post office, Belpochta, which delivers the newspapers to subscribers countrywide as well as the state distributor Belsayuzdruk, have both cancelled their 2004 contracts with the newspaper. Elsewhere, death threats were made overnight on 10/11 January against Irina Makovetskaya, the newspaper’s correspondent in Gomel, southern Belarus.Given that the authorities did everything possible to obstruct the BDG in 2003, the refusal of two state companies to work with the newspaper cannot be coincidental, said Reporters Without Borders. The international press freedom organisation said it was also worried about anonymous calls to journalist Irina Makovetskaya threatening to “bury” her and accusing her of “not liking” the Belarussian people and President Lukashenko. Reporters Without Borders warned that it would hold the authorities responsible if anything should happen to the journalist.Belpochta said in a letter on 28 December that it would not renew the contract with BDG on the grounds that its appearance in 2003 had been sporadic. In fact the authorities suspended BDG for three months in May 2003 over an article deemed offensive to President Lukashenko. It had huge difficulty in resuming publication. Since September 2003, it has been printed in Smolensk, in Russia. The state distributor, Belsayuzdruk, which has a virtual monopoly, has refused since 9 January to distribute BDG in Minsk, Brest and Vitsebsk. The newspaper is likely to bring an official complaint against both Belpochta and Belsayuzdruk. A mystery caller telephoned Irina Makovetskaya several times overnight on 10/11 January, introducing himself as a “representative of the Belarussian people”. He told the journalist that, despite her efforts, President Lukashenko would be reelected for a third term, adding that BDG only had a few days left. He accused her over articles about the Prime Minister Sergei Sidorsky and a winery turning over huge sum of money that had alleged links with the KGB. She said the caller was well informed about her contacts with an investigator connected with a defamation allegation made against her in 2002 by the Minsk prosecutor, Vyacheslav Terekhovich, leading her to conclude that he could be working for the authorities.

The process of the voting and granting of the lease to Cadence EnviroPower was carried out in ten minutes without proper information being gathered and studied on the company in question or the gasification process,” Mr Keogh claimed.He also claims that important information was revealed at a public meeting in Shanagolden last July regarding background checks on the US leaseholders and aspects of the gasification process. The information came as news to the local representatives.“This is a totally insulting failure of local democracy. The councillors signed off on the people’s everyday lives in favour of an inexperienced US company with a track record of failed bids in the USA, India and Argentina; who had no proof that they had indeed ever operated a plant such as the one proposed for Gortadroma.“We do not need Incineration in Ireland. The Council has ignored the real problems that are associated with this type of activity. Our health, our children’s health, the farming community and the effects that their animals may develop over time, land values, property values etc. It is just absolutely appalling to think that we should have to put all of these at risk on the whim of people who did absolutely no research on the company, effects or consequences of allowing a lease such as this to go ahead. They were not elected to do any of that.”Last March, 37 out of 40 Limerick councillors voted in favour of the gasification plant at the former Gortadroma landfill wirh three Anti Austerity Alliance (AAA) councillors opting out of the vote.Cllr Cian Prendiville (AAA) called for a full presentation on the plans to be delivered to the full council before a decision was made, however the majority of council members voted against his proposal. He was accused at the time of “trying to crack a nut with a hammer”.

Commercial fisheries data, collected as part of an observer programme and covering the period 1997–2014, were utilized in order to define key reproductive traits and spawning dynamics of the Patagonian toothfish Dissostichus eleginoides at South Georgia. Multi-year spawning site fidelity of D. eleginoides was revealed through the identification of previously unknown spawning hotspots. Timing of female spawning was shown to have shifted later, leading to a shorter spawning duration. A decrease in length and mass of female and male spawning fish and a reduced number of large spawning fish was found, evidence of a change in size structure of spawning D. eleginoides. During the study period fewer later maturity stage females (including spawning stage) were observed in conjunction with increased proportions of early stage female D. eleginoides. The findings are discussed in the context of reproductive success, with consideration of the possible effects such spawning characteristics and behaviours may have on egg and larval survival. This work presents the first long-term assessment of D. eleginoides spawning dynamics at South Georgia and provides valuable knowledge for both the ecology of the species and for future fisheries management of this commercially important species.
