Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution July 29, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Help for blogger who lost job and home for criticising chemical company News February 6, 2021 Find out more to go further Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff Help for blogger who lost job and home for criticising chemical companyReporters Without Borders is helping Tamer Mabrouk, a blogger based in the Egyptian city of Port Said who was fined more than 6,000 euros in May for allegedly defaming an Egyptian company, Trust Chemical Industries, by posting entries in his blog (http://elhakika.blogspot.com) about its dumping of untreated waste water. “I wanted to create a blog, above all to denounce corruption in Egypt,” Mabrouk said. “It was an attack on President Mubarak in Port Said that made me start the blog, because there was big difference between the official story and what actually happened (…) I then denounced the abuses by Trust Chemical Industries and the problems quickly started. The police arrested the owner of the company that sold me the website. The site is nowadays under surveillance by the police, who can block it and ban it whenever they like”“Then I was threatened with eviction from the apartment I was renting. My wife and I were forced to move because we were put under a lot of pressure. As I had been fired by Trust Chemical Industries, I could no longer pay my rent.”The funds provided by Reporters Without Borders have helped Mabrouk and his family to cope for a few months with the problems caused by his blog posts and his refusal to be intimidated. As well as losing his job with Trust Chemical Industries, he was ordered to pay a fine that is 100 times the average monthly wage. And now he is finding it hard to get a new job because of his reputation for being outspoken.“None of this changes my desire to continue blogging, despite the threats I get,” Mabrouk said. “It is not a personal matter, it is a fight for freedom of expression. It is also a way for me to defend my country against completely unscrupulous companies.” News Organisation EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Egypt February 1, 2021 Find out more News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison News Video in Arabic and French : January 22, 2021 Find out more

The bench comprising of the Chief Justice S. Manikumar and Justice Shaji P. Chaly directed the Corporation as well as PWD to maintain and repair, and make arrangements for the roads and the footpaths under their respective control so as to enable the differently abled persons to access them appropriately.The order is passed in a PIL filed by Dr. PA Mary Anitha, the Chairperson of an NGO namely Centre for Empowerment and Enrichment (CEFEE). She submitted before the court that the poor maintenance of the footpaths and the roads is causing difficulties to the differently abled people to use the roads and the footpaths basically due to the unscientific nature of constructions carried out and the poor and timely maintenance.Referring to the provisions of Kerala Municipality Act, 1994, the bench observed that the Corporation is endowed with the duty to provide necessary amenities and convenience to the general public, which includes the duty and responsibility to maintain the roads and footpaths so as to cater to the needs of the differently abled persons. The court said:”They are also entitled to enjoy the other fundamental rights guaranteed to the citizens under the Constitution to the extent possible for them. That apart, the State has a duty as per the directive principles of state policy under Part 1V of the Constitution to secure a social order for W.P.(C) No. 24850/2018 : 13 : the promotion of welfare of the people, which includes the special and essential requirements of the differently abled citizens and therefore, it is the inevitable function of the State and the local bodies to look after the affairs of the differently abled citizens also. Which thus means, any failure on the part of the State Government or the authority concerned to discharge such duties can only be viewed as a serious and unpardonable lapse justifying a writ court to step in to issue necessary directions. Now, after the introduction of Part 1XA to the Constitution of India dealing with Municipalities on and with effect from 01-06- 1993, the Municipalities are liable to discharge such functions entrusted with them thereunder.”While issuing directions to the PWD and Corporation, the Court observed that steps shall be taken immediately and without fail and all the works to the extent possible shall be completed at the earliest and at any rate, within three months.CASE: DR.
