The authorities accused the station, owned by the mayor of Antananarivo, of broadcasting statements liable to “disturb public order and security.” Ratsiraka has lived in exile in Paris since 2002.“Viva’s closure signals a hardening in President Marc Ravalomanana’s policy towards news media regarded as sympathetic towards the opposition,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Diversity of views must be tolerated in Madagascar and we call on the authorities to reverse this decision and allow the station to resume operating.”Located in the district of Ambodivona, Viva TV was closed by police officers who arrived in two trucks at about 11:30 p.m. on 13 December with a document signed by the minister of telecommunications, post and communication, Bruno Andriantavision, ordering its immediate closure. The police also confiscated the DVD containing the former president’s message. There was no mention of how long the ban would last.President Ratsiraka’s message, recorded in Paris on 2 December and dealing with the political, social and economic situation in Madagascar, had been broadcast by Viva TV just a few hours before the raid.Extracts from the message had already been widely broadcast by other stations and printed by the privately-owned daily Midi Madagasikara on its front page two days before without any of these media being bothered by the police.Viva TV owner and director Andry Rajoelina described the closure as a “purely political decision” and said claimed “the government had been intending to close Viva TV for a long time.” He also accused the head of the media regulatory body of harassing the station for the previous two weeks, looking for any pretext to close it.Rajoelina’s relations with the government have been tense ever since he was elected mayor of Antananarivo a year ago, defeating the ruling party candidate.

  • Splitting couples turn to mediation

    first_imgWATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Email Advertisement Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live [email protected] going through martial or domestic breakups are increasingly turning to the Family Mediation Service in Limerick rather than going to the expense of court action to divide property and agree on child access.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up 400 clients a year are now using the free service in Limerick, according to Regional Manager, Carmel Savage.“The majority of people who use our services are couples divorcing or separating although we do have a smaller but increasing number of extended family disputes,” said Ms Savage.The Regional Manager was speaking ahead of Mediation Awareness Week which runs from October 10 to 15, with a special open day in Limerick on Tuesday, October 18 from 11am to 2pm.“This has always been a free service and everyone can access it, regardless of income,” Ms Savage told the Limerick Post.“People can expect to wait to see a mediator for between two and three months which is pretty good, as we have recently put more resources into the service.“If couples decide to go to court, they could be waiting that long or longer and there is cost involved. There are also long waiting lists for representation through the law centres,” she added.According to the governing organisation “Mediation is a successful and cost-effective alternative to going to Court.   It saves time, money and important relationships.  Mediators do not make decisions or judgements, instead they quickly and expertly help people in conflict to reach their own agreement together. “Mediation Awareness week will highlight the benefits of this highly effective process and the opportunity it offers to resolve conflict right across our society”.Parenting children, the family home, property, savings and pensions are among the most common areas which need resolution at a mediation session, the service finds.The Service, which is now part of the Legal Aid Board, celebrates its 30th year this year.This free public service helps couples who are separating or divorcing to negotiate their own terms of agreement, taking into account the needs and interests of all involved. On average, mediation takes between four and six sessions with each session taking around an hour.The service is also available to resolve disputes between businesses, community organisations and individuals.The first session gives the opportunity to explore mediation as an option for you and, after this, there is an agreement whether to go ahead with mediation in full.The Legal Aid Board also provides a number of Court based mediation services around the country. You can access mediation and information on the location of offices through: www.legalaidboard.ie.
