DÖRDÜNCÜ KUVVET MEDYA


 

Aydın Doğan Olayı’nın Düşündürdükleri!

Dördüncü kuvvet medya özlemi; devletin sahibi olan halkın devleti denetlemesi gereksiniminden kaynaklanır. Yasama, yürütme, yargı erklerini; kişileri ve eylemleriyle görecek işitecek, halka gösterecek işittirecektir. Bunun sonucunda; yasama, yürütme, yargı kişileri kendilerine çekidüzen verecek, uygulamalarında halk yararını gözeteceklerdir.

Halka istediğini gösterecek istediğini göstermeyeceksin, istediğini işittirecek istediğini
işittirmeyeceksin, halkı işine geldiği gibi yönlendireceksin, bundan büyük güç mü olur?

Halk gözünü kapar kulağını tıkarsa; devletin, tüccarın, yabancının medyasını davul zurna çalsalar da görmez işitmez, umursamaz ve bildiğinden şaşmaz.

Aydın Doğan medyası, tüccar medyasıydı. Bir başka tüccar medyasına satıldı. Eğer Aydın Doğan dediği gibi yayıncı olarak gazeteciliğin evrensel kurallarına bağlı olsaydı, bağımsız haberciliğe büyük önem verseydi; bir vakıf kurar, medyasını halk medyasına devrederdi.

EU : Court of Auditors’ Special report on Turkey


 

EU pre-accession assistance to Turkey: Only limited results so far

As a key foreign policy partner and candidate for EU membership, Turkey is the top beneficiary of EU aid outside the EU. We audited the effectiveness of 3.8 billion euro in pre-accession assistance in the areas of the rule of law, governance and human resources. We found that the assistance is generally well-designed and projects deliver outputs. However, mainly due to a lack of political will and because the Commission has made little use of conditions, EU assistance has insufficiently addressed some fundamental needs and the sustainability of results is often at risk. We therefore consider the effectiveness of the funding to be only limited and make a number of recommendations for improvements, including better targeting of funds and increased conditionality.

Protect Children Against Sexual Abuse


 

New strategies used in Europe!

The first report, adopted in December 2015, scrutinised the Parties’ legal framework, judicial procedures and data collection mechanisms to protect children against sexual abuse in the circle of trust.

This secnd report, adopted in January 2018, examines Parties’ [Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Spain, “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”, Turkey, Ukraine.] strategies (structures, measures and processes in place to prevent and protect children from sexual abuse in the circle of trust). This report more specifically looks into Parties’ strategies with regard to the

[i] involvement of relevant stakeholders

 

[ii] in awareness-raising,

 

[iii] education and training. It also assesses the processes in place to

 

[iv] screen and

 

[v] deny access to children to persons convicted of sexual offences against them. Finally, stock is taken of the

 

[vi] measures and programmes to assist sexual offenders. most Parties have yet to take action to offer effective intervention programmes or measures to assist both persons (including children) who fear they might commit sexual offences against children and persons already convicted for sexual offences against children.

 

In this context Parties are urged to also put in place a tool or a procedure to assess the dangerousness and possible risk of repetition of offences against children. Similarly they should have in place a tool or procedure to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention programmes and measures.

 

With regard to all the above areas, the Committee identifies promising practices that may be of inspiration for those who are not yet doing so.

EP calls on Turkey to lift state of emergency


 

MEPs condemn Turkey’s repression of criticism over its assault on Afrin

EP says; The state of emergency declared after the coup attempt of 16 July 2016 is currently being used to further stifle legitimate and peaceful opposition. Since then, more than 160 media outlets have closed and Turkey’s civil society faces a massive crackdown.

EP urges the Turkish authorities:

 

lift the state of emergency in the country;

 

to immediately and unconditionally release all those who have been detained only for carrying out their legitimate work, exercising freedom of expression and association and are being held without compelling evidence of criminal activity;

 

calls on the Turkish authorities to allow trade unions to exercise legitimate union activity;

only a fair political settlement of the Kurdish question can bring sustainable stability and prosperity, both to the area and to Turkey as a whole, and therefore calls on both sides to return to the negotiating table;

seriously concerned about the humanitarian consequences of the military intervention in this Kurdish-majority region of Syria and warns against the continuation of disproportionate actions;

to release pastor Andrew Brunson and to allow him to return home;
