News RSF_en To assist reporters in exileIn November 2009, Reporters Without Borders began a major assistance programme for Iranian journalists and netizens who have fled their country since President Ahmadinejad’s disputed reelection and the ensuing unprecedented crackdown on the press. Reporters Without Borders has supported more than 30 visa applications and granted 55 requests for financial assistance. RSf defended the case of more than 80 journalists in exile. With the support of then European Commission Vice-President Jacques Barrot, Reporters Without Borders launched a campaign in 2009 to get various European governments to issue humanitarian visas to journalists seeking refuge. So far, only France has agreed to take Iranian journalists and human rights activists under emergency procedures.The report we are now releasing details the activities that Reporters Without Borders has undertaken for Iranian journalists since November 2009. Reza Valizadeh, 35, had to flee Iran in a hurry to avoid being tortured in Evin prison or, worse still, ending up dead. With just the clothes on his back, he left his family and friends the day the police came looking for him.Reza’s problem was that he was a journalist, and a good one. Officially, he was a presenter on national television’s fourth channel. But he clandestinely kept two blogs as well.He posted a blog entry about President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s acquisition of pedigree German shepherds worth several tens of thousands of euros, a luxury that does not sit well with the image of modesty that Ahmadinejad tries to project.He also dared to report on the activities of the Crime Verification Committee, which was created by opposition parties to investigate crimes involving members of the regime’s security forces, police and militias. The committee probed a bit too thoroughly into sensitive cases. It was dissolved, its members were arrested and the reprisals spread as far as the associated network of journalists.A team of police officers came knocking on his door last September. Reza did not think twice. He headed straight for Turkey and a UN refugee agency camp. But he was too close to the Iranian border there, still within the reach of the Revolutionary Guards. His request for a French visa was supported by Reporters Without Borders, which paid for his accommodation for the first six weeks after his arrival in France in January. Since then, he has found a place to stay through friends and is continuing to make a living from his activities as an online journalist.

Pasadena Health Dept. Needs More Time, Money to Transition HIV/AIDS Clinic to New Provider

first_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Pasadena’s Department of Public Health is asking for more time – and money – to effect the transition of its HIV/AIDS clinic services to a private health services provider.Instead of shutting down the clinic on September 30th and handing operations over to JWCH Institute Inc. as planned, the department will continue to operate the facility until the end of November.“Given the complexities involved and requisite Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approval of the delegation of existing contracts held by the City to JWCH, it may not be possible to complete the transition by September 30, 2015,” Steve Mermell, Assistant City Manager and Acting Public Health Director, wrote in an Agenda Report Monday.“To ensure a smooth transition for the hundreds of clients currently being served by the City’s Andrew Escajeda Clinic, staff is requesting additional budgetary authority to enable the Clinic to operate up to November 30, 2015,” Mermell said.JWCH Institute Inc. is a Los Angeles-based non-profit health services provider contracted by the Public Health Department to operate the Andrew Escajeda Comprehensive Care Services clinic at 1845 N Fair Oaks Avenue which provides HIV/AIDS care.The City Council voted Monday night to approve the extension, which would cost an additional $357,372, to include a net increase of 2.08 Full-Time Equivalents. The Public Health Department said this will be offset by expected revenues of $282,028, for a net cost of $75,344.Earlier this year, the City Council decided to cut HIV/AIDS services and prenatal clinics from the department’s budget in an attempt to get rid of a $2 million deficit. The decision left some 100 HIV patients frequenting the clinic uncertain about their future care.The Public Health Department said the transition of prenatal services – to Pasadena-based CHAPCare – is on track and expected to be completed by the end of December.Transitioning the HIV/AIDS programs, however, is a more complex endeavor, and the department is working with JWCH to address the requirements of the transition.For the HIV/AIDS patients in the Pasadena area, this means services will continue to be provided at 1845 N Fair Oaks, at least until November 30th.For information about services at the HIV/AIDS clinic, visit www.cityofpasadena.net/publichealth/AECCS or call (626) 744-6140.
