Egyptian Photojournalist Faces Death Penalty
Mahmoud Abu Zeid, alias Shawkan, is an Egyptian photojournalist who was apprehended on August 14th, 2013, while covering the anti-government demonstration in Cairo. He was assigned by Demotix–a British photo agency–to report on the clashes between the army, and the supporters of deposed President Mohamed Morsi, which took place in Cairo’s Rabaa al-Adawiya Square. Zeid, along with more than 700 people, has been charged with murder, attempted murder, and membership with the Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian prosecutors have appealed for ‘maximum penalty’, that is death by hanging for all the accused. He was held without any trial or charges till March 2016. The UN Working Group considers his imprisonment as arbitrary, and they have also demanded for his immediate release.
SC Suggests To Revamp Crime Scene Photography
The Supreme Court of India has asked the government to consider the use of digital cameras with GPS and time stamp systems for crime scene photography on the recommendation of policemen. The court has requested the government to consider if states could create portals to upload images to note the time and reference number. Judges Adarsh Goel and U U Lalit, heard the submission of senior advocate and amicus curiae Arun Mohan, who suggested that the Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPR&D) can issue a manual. Mohan recommended that the digital cameras were on sale in the market for Rs 8000 each but the final specifications could be laid down by the BPR&D. Furthermore, he suggested,“The BPR&D may also prepare crime scene photography manual in English and regional languages,” and money can be used from unutilised funds. The judges added that the government should think about using this technology in every district headquarters, and eventually move to rural areas.
