Organisation Central African RepublicAfrica News Six years on, same unanswered questions about French journalist’s death in CAR Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information “Closing this case is out the question until we are satisfied that everything that could be done has been done,” said Vincent Fillola, the Lepage family’s legal adviser, who has just returned from a visit to Bangui. Aged 26, Lepage was murdered while travelling with one of the “anti-balaka” militias that fought the Séléka rebels during the 2012-2014 civil war in the CAR. Her killers have still not been identified and much remains to be done to advance the investigation.According to the information obtained by RSF, Fillola encountered an unexpected problem in Bangui: the Lepage murder case file has disappeared. Continuing political instability in the CAR, which has resulted in many judges being moved from one position to another, could be to blame. The judicial authorities insist they are doing everything possible to find the file, but its disappearance forced the judges to postpone the trial that was initially scheduled for January 2018.Several hypotheses have been developed about the circumstances of the ambush and possible suspects have been named, but no investigation has been carried out at the scene of the murder and no crime reenactment has been conducted, although this is obligatory in murder cases. Carrying out an investigation at the place where the murder took place would have been very difficult four years ago because of the security situation prevailing at the time, but it would be possible now, Fillola said in an interview for Reporters Without Borders (RSF). “Police investigators and investigating judges say that current conditions would allow a visit to the location, with the support of MINUSCA [the UN peacekeeping mission in the CAR] and the French judicial services,” he said. “Everyone is calling for a field investigation.”“We count on the judicial authorities to do every possible to locate the Camille Lepage murder file,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “And since the security situation now allows it, it is incomprehensible that the investigators have not yet been able to carry out their investigation in the field, including a reenactment of the crime using forensic methods, which is essential. It is high time to complete this investigation, which has dragged on for too long. The responsibility and credibility of the CAR authorities is at stake. Everything must be done to ensure that this murder is not left unpunished.”Despite the problems in Bangui, Camille Lepage’s mother, Maryvonne Lepage, is determined to press on to the end. “Even if we cannot put a name to the person whose finger was on the trigger, it is essential that we at least identify the group that carried out the attack.” As well as establishing the truth about her daughter’s death, she is also aware of the need to press on for the sake of all the other reporters and photojournalists killed or missing in the field. “If we pursue this to the end, it can help all the other families to press on with their own investigations, or it can help to put other forgotten cases back on the agenda.”The Lepage murder is far from being the only one of a French journalist that is still unresolved after years. The investigation into the murders of Radio France Internationale journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon in northeastern Mali in 2013 has yet to be concluded. And the disappearance of Guy-André Kieffer, a journalist with French and Canadian dual nationality who disappeared in Côte d’Ivoire in 2004 while investigating shady practices in the cocoa trade, is unsolved after 14 years. According to the latest RSF tally, 1,035 journalists have been killed in connection with their work in the past 15 years, 65 of them in 2017.

Traveling Exhibition of Replicas of Argentinean Dinosaurs to Tour Europe

first_imgBy Dialogo February 18, 2009 For the next two years, the “Gigantic Argentinean Dinosaurs” exhibition, which opened ‎today in Buenos Aires, will tour various countries in Europe with original fossils and ‎exact replicas of the dinosaurs that inhabited Argentina, some of which have never been ‎shown abroad.‎ This exhibition, the result of a collaboration of seven museums of Natural Sciences ‎coordinated by The National Scientific and Technical Research Council of Argentina ‎‎(CONICET), is the most significant one that this country has presented.‎ Among the dinosaurs reproduced in the exhibition, made possible by remains found in ‎various parks in Argentina, is “Argentinosaurus Huinculensis,” which at 38 meters long ‎is the largest known dinosaur in the world, and “Giganotosaurus Carolinii,” the largest ‎known carnivorous dinosaur.‎ Edgardo Romero, director of the Argentinean Museum of Natural Sciences in Buenos ‎Aires, said in his presentation that, for the first time, a replica of “Panphagia,” the oldest ‎ancestor of the sauropods, which were the largest dinosaurs that inhabited the Earth, will ‎be exhibited.‎ In his statements to Efe, Romero emphasized that the importance of this exhibition is that ‎it contains material “of international significance;” every item was selected for its ‎scientific interest.‎ ‎“The exhibition proves to the world that Argentina is a very important country for ‎paleontological studies, because it shows that there is sediment containing fossils of very ‎different ages which can document much of the history of dinosaurs,” and therefore ‎Argentina possesses “a paleontological community trained for research,” said Romero.‎ The head of the Paleontological Division of the Museum, Alejandro Kramarz, stated that ‎this exhibition is “unprecedented,” and reflects the wealth that Argentina possesses in this ‎field, with “fabulous” pieces which, in his view, have surprised the entire international ‎scientific community.‎ The exhibitions will be sent to the city of Rosenheim, Germany, where they will be ‎shown from April 29 until October 25, after which they will continue their journey ‎through Europe until late 2010, when they will return to Argentina.‎last_img read more
