Rezayee, who was shot dead in the head in the Kabul neighbourhood of Char Qala, is the first journalist to be killed in Afghanistan since the end of the war in 2001.”This horrible murder proves that press freedom still cannot be taken for granted in Afghanistan,” the organization said, reiterating its call to President Hamid Karzai for concrete measures in support of free expression.Reporters Without Borders also called for a thorough and independent investigation into Rezayee’s murder so that those responsible can be arrested and brought to trial.Until March, 24-year-old Rezayee presented a music programme on Tolo TV that was much criticized conservatives as anti-Islamic. On 13 March, the Council of Ulemas urged the government to put a stop to programmes deemed “immoral and anti-Islamic.”Rezayee was personally criticized by conservatives for her liberal behaviour on screen. Bowing to the pressure from the ulemas, Tolo TV fired her on the grounds that her personality did not meet the station’s requirements.Tolo TV has been the target of constant criticism from religious leaders, who have waged several campaigns for it to be banned. President Karzai’s cabinet threatened to withdraw the station’s licence in November 2004 for broadcasting “Islamically incorrect” programmes.

Did no garda in Galway check what people were reported missing around that time, and was no garda in Limerick aware of a body being found in Galway? I’m not satisfied,” added the deceased’s heartbroken Denis Walsh snr.The family have sought permission to exhume Mr Walsh’s remains and lay him to rest finally in his native Limerick.Many other families of missing persons have now been left pondering whether their missing loved one’s remains have been buried or are they still be held in storage.In a statement today, Deputy Duncan Smith said: “In Ireland, there are 823 missing persons files open. However, there is no record of how many remains have been interred in cemeteries, or remain in morgues, as the current rules regulating coroners does not compel them to report unidentified remains to a central system.““There is no one individual or authority with responsibility for collating all the unidentified remains that have been found in this country. We literally do not know how many unidentified remains have been interred in cemeteries or remain in morgues as rules regulating coroners does not compel them to report unidentified remains to a central repository.”“This is set against a total of 823 current missing persons files currently open, the oldest dating back to 1951.“Deputy Smith said coroners “are not compelled“ to report how many unidentified bodies are in the country, “which has led to the perverse situation where families of missing persons must go to individual coroners’ and graveyards to seek information relating to their loved one”.“One family described this process as like going to 40 lost and found desks. At a time of horrendous heartbreak, it’s simply unacceptable that families of missing persons would be treated this way by the State,” he said.“I am calling on the Minister for Justice to right this wrong for families. If coroners cannot find out the ‘how’, they certainly don’t have to find out the who.”“The Corners must be compelled to keep records of unidentified bodies, identifying the cause of their death and opening a system that would reunite the remains of these people with their family and loved ones.““The media has gone above the call of duty for many of these families, searching for answers to these harrowing stories of loss. Instead of having families turn to journalists and the media to solve the mystery of missing persons, the State must play an active role in trying to solve these cases and bring truth to families after the headlines have moved on.” Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Twitter Facebook LimerickNewsAudit of coroners and cemeteries sought to establish number of unidentified remains, in order to help bring closure for families of missing personsBy David Raleigh – March 6, 2021 107 Print Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more
