How was investigative reporter pushed to kill himself?

first_img Melanesia: Facebook algorithms censor article about press freedom in West Papua Receive email alerts IndonesiaAsia – Pacific News IndonesiaAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Indonesia to go further August 6, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 How was investigative reporter pushed to kill himself? News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders is saddened to learn of the death of investigative journalist Ardiansyah Matra’is, whose body was found in a river in the eastern province of Papua two days after he was reported missing. The cause of death has not yet been official determined, but his mental state suggests it was suicide.Employed by Merauke TV, a local station in the south of the province, Matra’is had been seriously depressed for months after being threatened by soldiers because of his coverage of illegal logging. His body was found by a search and rescue team in the River Gudang Arand near Merauke at 6:30 a.m. on 30 JulyReporters Without Borders calls for a serious and impartial investigation into the link between his death and the harassment to which he had been subjected. Coming after the flight of a journalist who investigated an illegal logging ring in Simeuleu, in the western province of Aceh, the death of Matra’is seems to confirm the dangers of covering deforestation in Indonesia.The press freedom organisation also urges the Papua provincial authorities to guarantee the ability of the local media to work freely. In the run-up to local elections, journalists have been exposed to frequent threats in the province.Before joining Merauke TV, Matra’is had worked for ANTV, a national television station, Jubi, a magazine based in Jayapura (the provincial capital), and Rajawali, a regional daily. Last year, he wrote a series of reports for Jubi about illegal logging by local military officers, and managed to take photos of their operations.Local sources told Reporters Without Borders that a member of the national intelligence agency, posing as a journalist, subsequently contacted Matra’is and suggested they should work together on a story on the same subject. Matra’is was then kidnapped and threatened by army officers, who urged him to return to Merauke, the town where he born. “Or else we will kill all the members of your family,” they reportedly told him.Matra’is had received treatment several times in a psychiatric hospital and stopped working several weeks before his death.Local journalists in the region, to which the foreign media are denied access, have meanwhile reported receiving threats by SMS, apparently in connection with the forthcoming local elections. Jojo, the editor of the daily Rajawali, told the Kompas.com news website that some journalists had been getting threatening text messages for week.“To cowardly journalists, never play with fire if you do not want to be burned,” one message said, adding: “If you still want to make a living on this land, do not do weird things.” According to Jojo, messages warned that journalists in Papua would be killed and “no action will be taken by the police or the military.” A letter apparently written in blood was also placed outside the Merauke home of Lala, a reporter for the daily Bintang Papua.The electoral commission disqualified a candidate after local journalists investigated the destruction of another candidate’s banners, Jojo noted. Papua police spokesman Wachyono confirmed that journalists had filed complaints about the threats and that an investigation was under way.center_img News RSF_en Organisation On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years August 21, 2020 Find out more November 19, 2020 Find out more News August 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Greensky Bluegrass & Marco Benevento To Host WaterWheel’s 20th Anniversary Celebration

first_imgGreensky Bluegrass recently announced an exciting new show at the Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk on August 3rd. With Marco Benevento as a special guest, this show is sure to be a doozy. On a Thursday between Phish shows, smack-dab in the middle of the jam juggernauts’ Baker’s Dozen run at Madison Square Gardens, fans will come together to celebrate twenty years of Phish’s WaterWheel Foundation. The WaterWheel Foundation was created in 1997 to oversee Phish’s charitable activities. The foundation chooses from a diverse smattering of non-profits to benefit charities focused on social services for women and children, food banks, urban gardening, clean water access, and land conservation, to name a few. Thanks to the generosity of the fans, since its creation, the WaterWheel’s Touring Division has donated over $1,000,000 to more than 425 groups.Greensky Bluegrass and Marco Benevento are both tenured acts in the scene that have been tapped to celebrate this charitable foundation’s 20th anniversary and the great work they have done over the years. For more than a decade and a half, the members of Greensky Bluegrass have created their own version of bluegrass music, mixing the acoustic stomp of a string band with the rule-breaking spirit of rock & roll. The group redefined their sound once again with their sixth album, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted. Rock out to that here. Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive body of work for almost as much time as these bluegrass all-stars. Anybody who’s seen Marco Benevento perform will attest that he’s a satellite to the muse, with his eyes closed, smile wide across his face and fingers free-flowing across the keys. Listen to his 2016 The Story of Fred Short here.Tickets to Greensky Bluegrass with special guest Marco Benevento are now on sale. $1 from every ticket will go to The WaterWheel Foundation. Tickets available here.Enter to win a pair of VIP tickets below:L4LM Baker’s Dozen Late Nights: [Cover Photo by Jeremy Scott]last_img read more
