To ensure he could not be bailed, they put him on a murder charge.Reporters Without Borders said it was dismayed that yet again police had arrested a Bangladeshi journalist on a false accusation. It urged Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Moudud Ahmed to intervene with the relevant authorities to obtain the journalist’s release and the lifting of trumped-up charges against him.The international press freedom organisation also called in its letter to the minister for the punishment of police officer Khohinoor Miah implicated in the arrest and other human rights violations, including the torture of the journalist Saleem Samad in 2002.A riot broke out against security forces at a polling station in the town of Nandail on 9 May 2004, where local elections were being held. Police, on the order of Khohinoor Miah, fired into the crowd, killing two demonstrators and injuring at least 17 others. Pal took pictures of the police action.Police turned up at his home that night to seize the negatives. Despite threats of reprisals, Pal refused. Police searched his home and one officer said he had been ordered to arrest him if he failed to comply.Pal, who is deputy chairman of the town press club, is to appear before the Nandail court on 12 May. He cannot be released on bail because he is accused of murder under Article 302 of the criminal code. District administrator for Mymensingh district said that the chief of police had acted against his advice.On the day of Pal’s arrest, the minister, Moudud Ahmed, told a meeting of donor countries that there was complete press freedom in Bangladesh and that journalists had been killed or attacked for reasons that had nothing to do with their work.Representatives of the donor countries had asked the Dhaka government to act to improve the situation, pointing out that there could be no press freedom as long as journalists worked under threat.

first_imgBrandon Triche and Michael Carter-Williams turned in nearly identical numbers in leading Syracuse against St. John’s on Sunday.They set the tone on both ends of the court in the dominant 19-point victory, harassing the Red Storm guards at the top of the zone, knocking down open jumpers and feeding their teammates with precise passes.The senior finished with 16 points, seven assists and a steal, while the sophomore registered 17 points, eight assists and six steals.“I thought Brandon and Michael played well,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I thought this was their best game in a long time that they were good on defense, good on offense.”On defense, they were active and opportunistic, keeping their hands in the passing lanes and pressuring guards in their area.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSix-plus minutes into the game, the back-court duo combined to force a St. John’s turnover that led to an easy bucket on the break.Red Storm forward JaKarr Sampson held the ball in the left corner with nowhere to go. He looked to swing the ball back around the perimeter, but Triche denied the pass to guard D’Angelo Harrison on the wing. Sampson thought he had an opening to reach teammate Sir’Dominic Pointer at the top of the key. But that’s when Carter-Williams pounced in front and took off with the steal.The 6-foot-6 point guard dribbled down court with his left hand before switching to his right for an easy finger roll as Harrison flew by for a failed steal attempt.Syracuse took a 16-8 lead that soon expanded to 21-10 after a 3-pointer and assist by Triche. Another 3 by Triche off of a feed from Carter-Williams closed the half with the Orange up by 13.“We were just flowing and finding our open teammates and they were knocking down shots,” Carter-Williams said.While both scored and distributed the ball effectively, Triche was more impressed with the tandem’s low turnover total. The guards combined for just five turnovers, giving them a 3-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.After a pair of turnovers by the guards in a 13-second span in the opening minutes, both settled in.Carter-Williams drilled a 3 off of a pass from Triche on the ensuing possession, inciting a fist pump from Boeheim as he urged Carter-Williams to get locked in heading down the court.He and Triche did that as the team’s catalysts, powering an offense with four players in double figures while helping put Baye Moussa Keita in position for eight points on 4-for-4 shooting.With the guards playing this way, Syracuse will continue to click as conference play continues.“They both played well,” Jerami Grant said. “Brandon played a great game. Mike played a great game – to get a contribution from them like that, we’re definitely going to be hard to beat going forward.” Comments Published on February 10, 2013 at 9:22 pm Contact Ryne: [email protected] Related Stories HE’S BACK: Southerland scores 13 in 1st game back as Syracuse defeats St. John’s 77-58Fair leads SU past St. John’s with 17 points in all-around performance Grant to continue starting despite Southerland’s returnSoutherland glad to be back on court after arduous suspensionGallery: Syracuse defeats St. John’s 77-58 in Southerland’s returncenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
