A Casablanca appeal court judge had just imposed sentences of up to 20 years in prison on a total of 42 people for participating in the so-called “Hirak” protests in northern Morocco’s Rif region in 2016 and 2017.Describing the judge as an “executioner” in his 5 April tweet, Radi said: “These shameless officials should be neither forgotten nor forgiven.”On the morning of 26 December, Radi was summoned by the judicial police, who transferred the case to the prosecutor’s office. A prosecutor detained him immediately for contempt of court, which is punishable by up to a month in prison under article 263 of the criminal code. At a hearing a few hours later the same day, a court rejected a request by Radi’s lawyers’ for his provisional release and adjourned the case until 2 January.Radi often works for both Moroccan and international media outlets. He has written investigative reports on corruption cases and has of late covered many protests throughout Morocco.“We call for Omar Radi’s immediate release, because the criminal code should not be used to prosecute journalists in connection with their work,” RSF said. “We regret that Morocco continues to impose prison sentences on journalists for press offences. These criminal code provisions continue to be a permanent threat to Moroccan journalists although the 2016 press law abolished prisons sentences for journalists.”Morocco is ranked 135th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

There were 8,915 new cases in the last 24 hours, according to a government tally, while a record 12,331 people recovered, a sign that Russia may be past its peak.Restrictions have been eased in many areas though hard-hit Moscow remains on a strict lockdown until at least the end of May.On Monday, President Vladimir Putin made a rare lockdown appearance in the Kremlin after working remotely from his residence outside Moscow for weeks.Russia’s reported mortality rate is much lower than in other countries with similar rates of infection, leading critics to accuse authorities of under-reporting deaths to minimize the scale of the crisis. Health officials say one reason is that Russia counts only those deaths directly caused by the virus, unlike some countries that count all deaths of people infected. Russia on Tuesday recorded its highest daily coronavirus death toll of 174 but said more than 12,000 people had also recovered over the past 24 hours.Health officials said Russia’s total death toll from the pandemic had reached 3,807 and its number of cases had hit 362,342, the third-highest in the world after the United States and Brazil.The number of new cases has been steadily dropping and authorities have begun easing lockdown measures in some parts of the country.

(REUTERS) – Hampshire fast bowler Kyle Abbott picked up 17 wickets in a County Championship Division One match to help his side beat title-chasing Somerset by 136 runs yesterday.South African Abbott took 9-40 and 8-46 to finish with 17-86 – the best figures in first-class cricket since England’s Jim Laker picked up all 10 wickets in an innings and match figures of 19-90 against Australia in Manchester in 1956.Abbott’s were the fourth-best bowling figures in County Championship history and dented Somerset’s hopes of winning the title with one match left in the season.“It hasn’t quite sunk in. It is pretty incredible. Yesterday I didn’t think I’d take nine and I didn’t think I’d take eight today,” said the 32-year-old Abbott whose last Test appearance for South Africa was in 2017. “I reckon that is the best I can bowl.”Somerset dropped to second while Essex moved atop the standings after beating Surrey by an innings and 40 runs.Somerset are 12 points behind Essex and the teams play each other in the last match of the championship, where at least 16 points are up for grabs, starting on Monday at Taunton.Best match figures in Championship17-48 C.

Trump has now slammed that decision, however, vowing he won’t be watching the game again until the move is reversed. “I won’t be watching much anymore! And it looks like the NFL is heading in that direction also, but not with me watching!” Trump said on Twitter. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2020And it looks like the NFL is heading in that direction also, but not with me watching! https://t.co/aGfBaK7RNA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2020MORE: USMNT’s Weston McKennie says Donald Trump ‘can be called racist’Trump’s comments on social media came as he threw his support behind the stance of Florida Republican congressman Matt Gaetz, who himself tweeted: “I’d rather the US not have a soccer team than have a soccer team that won’t stand for the National Anthem. You shouldn’t get to play under our flag as our national team if you won’t stand when it is raised.”In a statement of their own earlier this week, U.S. Soccer confirmed their new stance on standing for the national anthem, stressing their previous approach to the matter was the wrong one. “The U.S. Soccer Board of Directors voted yesterday afternoon to repeal Policy 604-1, which required our players to stand during the national anthem,” the federation said in a statement. “The policy was put in place after Megan Rapinoe kneeled in solidarity with the peaceful protest inspired by Colin Kaepernick, who was protesting police brutality, and the systematic oppression of Black people and people of color in America. It has become clear that this policy was wrong and detracted from the important message of Black Lives Matter. We have not done enough to listen — especially to our players — to understand and acknowledge the very real and meaningful experiences of Black and other minority communities in our country. We apologize to our players — especially our Black players — staff, fans, and all who support eradicating racism.”The U.S. Soccer Board of Directors voted yesterday to repeal Policy 604-1, which required our players to stand during the national anthem.Black Lives Matter.We can do more and we will. pic.twitter.com/CuSsFW9IYN— U.S. Soccer MNT (@USMNT) June 11, 2020Ahead of the MLS’ return next month, the competition’s bosses have also confirmed there will be no national anthem played at games.”We won’t be playing the anthem, and you hit it on the head,” MLS commissioner Don Garber said. “There’s not going to be any fans in the stands, so we didn’t see that it would be appropriate. And I feel today no different than I felt then, which is if a player is looking to express their right to kneel during the national anthem, they should have the right to do so. I would hope that they would stand, but if they opt not to, that’s their prerogative and we will support that.” Donald Trump has taken a shot at U.S. Soccer, claiming he won’t be watching the game anymore following a decision not to force players to stand for the national anthem. America has been rocked by protests after the death of George Floyd with footballers around the world adding their voices to the Black Lives Matter movement. U.S. Soccer themselves have taken a surprisingly strong stance and announced earlier this week that players would no longer be forced to stand for the national anthem.

Currently, personal watercraft have no permanent docking area at the harbor, but can be launched there for a $15 a trip. This is the second season the harbor, which sits on Sandy Hook Bay, has allowed personal watercraft to use the facility.Initially, room will be available for nine watercraft, but the state permit allows for up to 14 spaces.“Basically, if it takes off, we’ll add the additional five,” Hubeny said.In May, the state Department of Environmental Protection issued a Coastal Areas Facilities Review Act (CAFRA) permit for the 14-space personal watercraft dock. The CAFRA permit, which governs coastal areas, is good for five years, Hubeny said.Atlantic Highlands is renting personal watercraft space at themunicipal harbor.The project is costing the borough $38,400 for the EZ Port Max 2i docks and piles, he said.According to Hubeny, the municipal harbor commission began discussing the personal watercraft docking about two years ago. Harbor Manager John Amici “has always been creative about bringing more revenues to the Harbor,” Hubeny said.The floating docks will be removed for the cold weather.The harbor has 481 boat slips, with about 455 or about 95 percent occupied, and 172 moorings, with about 135 or about 80 percent occupied, Hubeny said.The Municipal Harbor office is at 2 Simon Lake Drive, 732-291-1670, [email protected] Story and photos by Joseph SapiaATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – The borough has begun seeking renters for its new service – regular docking space for personal watercraft at the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor.The floating dock space is expected to be in place by the end of the month, occupying an area just west of Pier 1 – or an unused area between Sissy’s at the Harbor restaurant and the fishing boats, said Borough Administrator Adam Hubeny. The cost for space rental is $1,000 for the season, running March 1 to Oct. 31. Because the docks are being placed mid-season, the rental fee for the rest of the year is being pro-rated, working out to about $250 to $275, according to Hubeny.
