<<Turkish journalist arrested for insulting President Erdogan
Tens of thousands have been charged and sentenced over the crime of insulting Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the seven years since he became president.

A Turkish court ordered prominent journalist Sedef Kabas jailed pending trial on a charge of insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan under a law that has seen tens of thousands prosecuted. Police detained Kabas early on Saturday morning and took her to Istanbul’s main police station before transferring her to the city’s main court, which ruled in favour of her formal arrest. The alleged insult was in the form of a palace-related proverb that Kabas expressed both on an opposition television channel and on her Twitter account, drawing condemnation from government officials. <When the ox climbs to the palace, he does not become a king, but the palace becomes a barn,> she tweeted. Fahrettin Altun, head of Turkey’s communications department, denounced the statement. <The honour of the presidency’s office is the honour of our country… I condemn the vulgar insults made against our president and his office,> Altun tweeted. Abdulhamit Gul, Turkey’s justice minister, also said on Twitter that Kabas will <get what she deserves> for her <unlawful> words. ‘Unacceptable’ arrest Kabas, 53, has hosted a series of high-profile TV shows over a career spanning three decades. She was sent to Istanbul’s Bakirkoy prison, her lawyer Ugur Poyraz said, adding he will appeal the <unlawful> decision on Monday. <We hope Turkey can return to rule of law soon,> Poyraz added. Merdan Yanardag, chief editor of the Tele 1 channel, on which Kabas made the comments, sharply criticised her arrest. <Her detention overnight at 2am because of a proverb is unacceptable,> he wrote on social media. <This stance is an attempt to intimidate journalists, the media and society.> The law on insulting the president carries a jail sentence of between one and four years.>>

<<Chile president-elect Boric unveils women-majority cabinet
Fourteen of Chile’s 24 new cabinet ministers are women, while several are former student protest leaders.

Gabriel Boric, Chile’s left-wing president-elect, has announced his first cabinet, giving a majority of the posts to women and several to former student protest leaders. Fourteen of the 24 new ministers announced on Friday are women, including Defence Minister Maya Fernandez — a granddaughter of socialist President Salvador Allende, who was overthrown by a military coup in 1973. The interior ministry that oversees domestic security will go to Dr Izkia Siches, who was recently head of the national medical association. <We have formed this team with people who are prepared, with knowledge, with experience, and committed to the agenda of changes that the country needs,> Boric said. The cabinet announcement comes after Boric, who will turn 36 before taking office on March 11, won the presidential election last month. He ran on a platform to modernise Chile’s public health sector, which serves 80 percent of the population, replacing the now-privately run pension system while raising benefits and increasing the minimum wage. Social disparities in the South American nation had sparked widespread protests in 2019, lighting the fuse for the political rise of the progressive left and the redrafting of the country’s dictatorship-era constitution. <This Cabinet’s mission is to lay the foundations for the great reforms that we have proposed in our programme,> Boric said after unveiling his ministers, adding that it would look to drive economic growth while cutting out <structural inequalities>. <We are talking about sustainable growth accompanied by a fair redistribution of wealth,> he said. Communist Party legislator Camila Vallejo, who like Boric rose to prominence as a student leader, will be the government spokesperson.>>

<<DR Congo convicts sentenced to 15 years over jail rapes
Fifty-six women were repeatedly raped during a three-day mutiny at Kasapa jail in Lubumbashi in September 2020.

Ten convicts have been handed 15-year jail terms for the rape of dozens of female inmates at a prison in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, lawyers said. Fifty-six women were repeatedly raped during a three-day mutiny at Kasapa jail in Lubumbashi in September 2020.
Three of the women were infected with HIV (which causes AIDS) and 16 became pregnant after the assault, according to lawyers for the victims.
<The court has found the 10 prisoners guilty of raping over 30 women inmates. They stormed into the women’s section of the prison during riots in the prison in September 2020 and raped them,> Lieutenant Peter Ntangalo, a security officer in Haut-Katanga, told Anadolu Agency by phone. Prosecutors had sought 20-year terms against the accused, who were also sentenced on Wednesday to pay the equivalent of $5,000 to each of the women.
<We are satisfied with the verdict, [which came] after a long struggle to gain justice for my clients,> Melanie Mumba, a lawyer for the victims, told AFP news agency by phone. Defence lawyer Noella Bashizi said she would consult her clients about whether to appeal.
<It’s the Congolese state which should be prosecuted – it’s responsible for the bad jail conditions,> she said. <The women were raped over three days and no one intervened. And yet there’s a police base close to the jail.> >>

<<Chinese activist told he could not visit dying wife is re-arrested.

A Chinese human rights activist and writer who was detained following repeated pleas to be allowed to visit his terminally ill wife has been formally arrested days after she died for allegedly <inciting subversion of state power>. Yang Maodong, who goes by the pen-name Guo Feixiong, was formally arrested on Wednesday last week by the Guangzhou Public Security Bureau, two days after the death of his wife, Zhang Qing. An arrest document stated he was arrested <on suspicion of inciting subversion of state power>, and was being held at the Guangzhou No 1 detention centre. Yang’s arrest was first reported by the online Rights Protection Network group. Yang is a prominent human rights activist and legal consultant known for working with Taishi villagers protesting against corruption in 2005, after which he was jailed. He has been harassed, reportedly beaten, and in and out of detention for years, including a total of 11 years in prison, where Human Rights Watch said he was subjected to torture, including electric shocks. In 2009, Zhang and their children fled to the US, where she advocated for Yang’s release. After Zhang was diagnosed with a terminal illness in January 2021, Yang made repeated requests to Chinese authorities to let him go to his wife and children, but was refused on unspecified national security grounds. <You public servants are also husbands, [blessed with] marital love, must also have empathy of ordinary people,> he wrote to China’s premier, Li Keqiang, and the minister of public security, Zhao Kezhi, at the time. Dozens of academics, foreign politicians and human rights groups expressed concern about the case. Yang was detained again in December. From the US, Zhang pleaded with Chinese authorities to let Yang join his family.

<I’m in a critical condition. Things are particularly hard in these cold winter days – we, my family, need him,> she told the South China Morning Post. <Never could I imagine the Chinese authorities were capable of such inhumane cruelty – to keep him locked up when my life is coming to an end, it’s very shocking to me.>
The couple had not seen each other in 15 years.>>

<<UK peers vote in favour of making misogyny a hate crime
Move comes as the House of Lords delivers string of defeats to Boris Johnson’s government over its controversial police and crime bill.

The United Kingdom’s House of Lords voted in favour of making misogyny a hate crime in England and Wales during an overnight session that saw British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government suffer several legislative defeats. Peers in the UK Parliament’s unelected upper chamber voted for changing the law so that judges can impose stronger penalties when prejudice against women is proved to be the motivation for abuse. The amendment would also require police to record whether crimes were driven by the hatred of someone’s gender or sex. The development puts the peers at odds with Johnson, who along with senior ministers has previously spoken out against designating misogyny as a hate crime. Johnson said in October that <widening the scope> of what police are asked to do would only <increase the problem>. During the House of Lords session, peers repeatedly voted against several proposed measures and in favour of other amendments. The vote was part of a debate on the government’s Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill that began on Monday and lasted until the early hours of Tuesday.>>
