  • US-based freelance journalist freed on bail after one week, charged with sedition

    first_img Reporters Without Borders called today on the Gambian authorities to drop “sedition” charges against freelance journalist Fatou Jaw Manneh, who was finally freed on bail yesterday. She had been held by the National Intelligence Agency ever since on her arrival at Banjul international airport on 28 March from the United States, where she has been resident for the past 10 years.“This case reveals how the intolerant Gambian government uses repressive laws to disguise its desire for revenge,” Reporters Without Borders said. “After gagging journalists inside the country by means of arbitrary arrest and violence, the government is targeting those who are normally outside its grasp. It is now sending a threatening signal to all those who disagree with government policy and say so publicly.”Manneh appeared yesterday before a court in Kanifing, 12 km outside the capital, where she was charged with “intention to commit sedition,” “publication of seditious words,” and “publication of false news intended to create public fear and alarm,” for which she could get a three-year prison sentence. The court freed her on bail of 25,000 dalasis (800 euros) and set trial for 11 April.A former reporter with the privately-owned Daily Observer, Manneh currently contributes to the AllGambian.net website. Among the articles she is being prosecuted for is an October 2005 one in which she accused President Yahya Jammeh of “tearing our beloved country to shreds” and called him “a bundle of terror.”___________________________________30.03.2007 Intelligence agents arrest journalist and opposition activist as she gets off planeReporters Without Borders called today for the release of freelance journalist and pro-democracy activist Fatou Jaw Manneh, who was arrested by the National Intelligence Agency on 28 March on her arrival at Banjul international airport.

  • Antarctic Peninsula continental magnesian andesites: indicators of ridge-trench interaction during Gondwana break-up

    first_imgSubduction of young, hot oceanic lithosphere and a major episode of lithospheric extension have been considered as key tectonomagmatic factors in the genesis of ‘Setouchi-type’ continental magnesian andesites. We present data on a new discovery of such andesites from the northern part of the Antarctic Peninsula and propose that subduction of newly created oceanic lithosphere occurred along the proto-Pacific margin of Antarctica during the Middle Jurassic. Continental magnesian andesite magmatism was contemporaneous with the early stages of Gondwana break-up and we suggest that subduction of young, hot oceanic lithosphere and ridge-trench interaction may have contributed to the disintegration of Gondwana by thermally weakening the lithosphere and developing a broad, linear extensional zone along the proto-Pacific margin.last_img read more
