Cybercrime law’s threat to freedom of information

first_img PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa October 9, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cybercrime law’s threat to freedom of information Photo : Tudla Productions Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped Follow the news on Philippines The Philippines supreme court voted unanimously today to impose a 120-day temporary restraining order on the “Cybercrime Prevention Act 2012” pending hearings beginning 15 January to determine whether any of its provisions violate civil liberties.The court issued its ruling in response to 15 petitions against the law, known as Republic Act No. 10175, which President Benigno Aquino signed on 12 September.Reporters Without Borders takes the view that the amendments being proposed will not suffice and that the law should be repealed outright. Combatting cybercrime is legitimate but this law, which added online defamation to its list of “cybercrimes” at the last moment, poses too much of a threat to freedom of information.It is regrettable that the authorities did not consult sufficiently with civil society during the drafting process, which lacked transparency.Demonstrators gathered outside the supreme court building today in protest against the law, which has also prompted calls for an Internet boycott. Local activists and media groups have been expressing concern and campaigning against it since April.Reporters Without Borders is worried by the lack of a precise definition of online defamation, which exposes all Internet users to the possibility of prosecution. Many questions are being raised about the law:- Could an ordinary “like” on Facebook or an online comment about allegedly defamatory content lead to prosecution? Or could retweeting this kind of content lead to prosecution?- Would bloggers be held liable for the defamatory comment that visitors post on their blogs?- Could Internet Service Providers or other technical intermediaries be held liable for offending content posted by an unidentified person, as recently happened in Brazil? Would they be forced to adopt intrusive surveillance measures in order to identify Internet users liable for prosecution?In the Philippines, libel is a crime punishable by up to four years in prison and a fine of 200 to 6,000 pesos under article 355 of the 1930 Revised Penal Code. That’s bad enough, but under Chapter III Section 8 of Republic Act No. 10175, online defamation is punishable by up to 12 years in prison and a fine of 1 million pesos.Concern about possible abuse of the new law is justified given the frequency with politicians and other public figures have sued journalists and news media in recent years to get them to censor themselves.According to Sen. Edgardo Angara, one of its most enthusiastic advocates, the Cybercrime Prevention Act is meant to “encourage the use of cyberspace” and protect against its “abuse and misuse”But Global Voices quotes Internet users as describing the inclusion of online defamation in the law as a “clumsy cut-and-paste job” that is completely inappropriate to the Internet and could pave the way to abuses.The law’s articles on online defamation are an almost word-for-word copy of the definition of libel in article 353 of the Reformed Penal Code, simply adding that they apply to defamation committed by electronic means.Asia’s first murder of a journalists in 2012 took place in the Philippines, which continues to be one of the world’s most dangerous countries for the media and which was ranked 140th out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The percentage of investors in both California and Washington who said they preferred to flip was 75 percent, compared to 24 percent for renting. The percentage of flippers in Nevada and Idaho was 79 percent and 71 percent, respectively.“It seems clear that the unusually low inventory of homes for sale has led to higher home prices, which makes it challenging for investors to rent homes out at a rate that’s profitable, and still affordable for tenants,” EVP Rick Sharga said. “So in states like California, Washington, Nevada, and Arizona a large number of investors have decided that the best opportunity today is to meet the demand of prospective homeowners by buying, fixing, and re-selling investment properties.”Overall, 53.5 percent of investors surveyed said they preferred flipping, while 44.8 percent said they intended to rent the houses they purchased. A larger portion of real estate investors (55 percent) and investors working on behalf of another investor (66.3 percent) said they intended to flip, while a majority of investors making a one-time purchase (66.9 percent) said they intended to’s survey was collected from investors who bid on properties both online and at live events nationwide during Q1.

Fifty-nine percent of investors who purchased between two and 49 properties during the quarter said they intended to flip, as did 53.6 percent of investors who purchased 50 or more properties.”Historically, individual investors have owned over 95 percent of the single family homes available for rent,” Sharga said. “It looks like these investors are coming back to the market, and filling a growing market need for rental units.”Click here for a video commentary from Rick Sharga on the latest survey.

Suspect in deadly San Diego synagogue shooting linked to mosque arson fire: Source

first_imgFacebook(SAN DIEGO) — The suspected gunman who allegedly opened fire with an assault rifle on members of a Southern California synagogue during a Passover service — killing one person and wounding three others, including the rabbi and a child — has been linked to a recent arson blaze at a nearby mosque, according to a law enforcement source.John Earnest, 19, was taken into custody after being confronted during Saturday’s attack on the Chabad of Poway synagogue near San Diego by an armed off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent working security at the temple, officials said.A law enforcement source with direct knowledge of the investigation told ABC News that Earnest has been identified as the suspect in a March 24 arson fire that damaged the Dar-ul-Arqam mosque in Escondido, a San Diego County town about 15 miles north of the synagogue in Poway.Earnest “is our guy,” the law enforcement source said of the arson at the mosque.In the mosque fire, Earnest, of San Diego, allegedly left behind a note referencing the March 15 attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. A 28-year-old Australian man, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, described by authorities as a white supremacist, allegedly killed 50 Muslim worshippers and broadcast part of the massacre on Facebook Live.In the Chabad of Poway synagogue attack, Earnest allegedly wore a helmet camera and was attempting to live stream the shooting, but his video equipment apparently failed to function, the source told ABC News.Prior to Saturday’s shooting, Earnest allegedly posted a 4,000-word letter on the dark web, professing to be a white supremacist and expressing hate for Jewish and Muslim people.Earnest was allegedly inspired by the mass shootings in Christchurch and at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, where on Oct. 27 suspect Robert Bowers, who had written anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant messages on a website popular with white supremacists, allegedly killed 11 people and wounded seven others.The attack in Poway occurred exactly six months after the Tree of Life massacre.“It was only six months ago to the day that we became members of that tragic club of community-based shootings to which no one wants to belong. We know first-hand the fear, anguish and healing process such an atrocity causes, and our hearts are with the afflicted San Diego families and their congregation,” reads a statement from the leaders of the Tree of Life Synagogue.“These senseless acts of violence and prejudice must end. Enough is enough!” reads the statement.The Chabad of Poway synagogue shooting unfolded about 11:30 a.m. when Earnest allegedly fired at least 10 rounds inside the house of worship with a .223 AR assault rifle he purchased in recent weeks, the law enforcement source told ABC News.A U.S. Border Patrol agent, whose name has not been released, was working security at the synagogue when the gunfire erupted. He confronted the gunman and is being hailed as a hero for stopping the attack.The armed agent fired at the gunman, missing him but hitting his car as he drove off, authorities said.Earnest was taken into custody moments later when a K-9 officer saw him nearby, officials said. The suspect jumped out of his car and put his hands up, San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit said during the conference on Saturday.Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein was in in the middle of his sermon on the last day of the Jewish observance of Passover when gunfire broke out, witnesses said.Lori Gilbert Kaye, 60, a member of the Poway synagogue, was shot in the attack and later died at Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, according to authorities and synagogue officials. Three other people hurt in the attack, including a young girl, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Palomar Medical Center, officials said.All of the surviving victims have been released from the hospital, officials said on Sunday.Despite being shot in the hand, Rabbi Goldstein continued with his Passover sermon, witnesses told the police.Minoo Anvari said her husband, who was attending the service, called her from the synagogue immediately after the shooting.“The rabbi lost two fingers. But in spite of bleeding, he was trying to finish his speech,” Anvari said her husband told her. “He was telling all the people who know him, ‘Be strong. … God helps us, God helps [our] country.’”President Trump praised the border agent for his heroism.“Sincerest THANK YOU to our great Border Patrol Agent who stopped the shooter at the Synagogue in Poway, California. He may have been off duty but his talents for Law Enforcement weren’t!” President Donald Trump tweeted Saturday.During a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Saturday night, Trump said, “We forcefully condemn the evil of anti-Semitism and hate. It must be defeated. We will all get to the bottom of it.”In the letter he allegedly wrote, Earnest made a point of saying he is not a supporter of the president.John Sanders, acting commissioner of the Customs and Border Protection, said the Border Patrol agent is based in the region.“We have learned that one of our own off-duty Border Patrol agents was present and took actions that may have prevented additional loss of life,” Sanders said in a statement. “CBP will fully support our law enforcement partners who are investigating.”In an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Sunday, Poway Mayor Steve Vaus said his community is responding to the shooting with love.“You know, our community is doing as well as can be expected, and I just want to say first, our Jewish brothers and sisters from Chabad of Poway have to feel the love all of us are sending their way,” Vaus said. “We’re a close community and we’re going to be for them every step of the way.”He said security is being boosted at houses of worship in the area.“Every preacher on every pulpit in Poway will talk about this,” Vaus said. “It will be on people’s hearts and minds, and our law enforcement teams, who have been incredible from the beginning of this, are going to make sure our community is safe.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_img Brad James FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailNORMAN, Okla.-Wednesday, BYU men’s golf moved up two more spots in the standings to secure a spot in the NCAA Men’s Golf National Championships later this month, by placing second at the Norman, Okla. regional.The Cougars played impeccable golf Wednesday, playing a collective 278 -13 to finish second behind third-ranked Oklahoma, who won the regional. The Sooners shot 850 -14 to get the win. BYU’s overall score for the regional was 851 -13.BYU’s stars on the third day of competition were Patrick Fishburn who shot a 69 to finish 206 -10 and Peter Kuest who was 210 -6 overall for the tournament.
