We are astonished that a simple procedural matter is holding this up.”The organisation wrote to the justice minister on 3 November pointing out that “the lack of a decision in the Lindor case contradicts your expressed wish to see things move forward quickly.” It called for “every effort to be made to ensure the supreme court rules as soon as possible.””We regret that this letter was not answered despite satisfaction that our mission was able to meet the president, prime minister and other top officials during its visit,” it said in today’s letter. “We hope the government will soon respond by taking action in these cases.”Reporters Without Borders produced a report on the fact-finding mission called “Press freedom returns: a gain to be nurtured.” It stressed that solving the Brignol and Dominique murders would “show that a return to the rule of law is under way for the whole society as well as for journalists, who have no defence against armed groups.” 18 months delay by the supreme courtBrignol Lindor, a presenter with Radio Echo 2000, in Petit-Goâve, was killed on 3 December 2001 by a group of men armed with stones and machetes and belonging to a pro-Lavalas group called Domi Nan Bwa. Despite confessions by some of them to the head of the Haitian Journalists’ Association, Guyler C. Delva, soon after the murder, none of them were arrested. When the legal investigation ended in September 2002, 10 of the group were charged but the town’s deputy mayor was not, even though he had publicly called for the journalist to be killed. The Lindor family lawyer, Jean-Joseph Exumé, says none of the group are now in prison. The case has been before the supreme court since spring 2003, when the family took it there in an effort to be formally named a civil party in the case, a status refused them by the lower appeals court. A simple formality Jean Dominique, the country’s best-known journalist and political commentator, was shot dead on 3 April 2000 in the courtyard of the radio station he ran, Radio Haiti Inter. The station’s security guard, Jean-Claude Louissaint, was also killed. Ever since then, virtually all state institutions have thrown up obstacles to solving the murder, which Aristide associates are thought to have committed. The legal investigation ended on 21 March 2003 with the charging of six people, already under arrest, for carrying out the murder. Nobody was named as the person who ordered them to do it however. Both Dominique’s widow, Michèle Montas, and the six accused appealed against the investigation report. The Port-au-Prince appeals court ordered a new enquiry on 4 August that year and the release of three of the suspects. The other three appealed against the decision to the supreme court, automatically suspending the start of a new enquiry.The court rejected their appeals on 1 July this year. Since then, it has been up to the government legal representative attached to the court to send the case file to his opposite number with the main lower court so its chief, Jean-Joseph Lebrun, can appoint another investigating judge who will reopen the case. But five months after the supreme court ruling, this simple administrative formality has not been carried out.

Equally, Mike Brown has been outstanding for Harlequins. By moving Ben to the wing we retain his strike power and aerial skills and can utilise not only Mike’s attacking and defensive assets we can also call on his left-footed kicking game.“Selection is competitive in lots of positions, particularly at scrum half. We are really pleased with Ben’s form and he knows our systems well. Lee, if he gets his chance from the bench I am sure will make an impact and Danny will get his opportunity to press his case, as will the others, in the first midweek game on Wednesday. It’s also great to see another young player get Test match experience in Jonathan Joseph and he is delighted to get this opportunity in the match 22 – we are confident he is ready for the step up to this level.

Perched on a steep rocky slope in an area distinguished by its pine forest and captivating views of Beirut and the sea, this house is almost invisible at surface level. Layered, it consists of three flowing expanses of inhabitable concrete. These superposed cantilevered floors support the various elements of the brief, which are tied together by an internal ramp running through the villa. Open floors are presented as horizontal incisions that lend a certain structure to the rugged surroundings. Spacious inside, the cantilevered villa projects itself into empty space. Provocative, it surprises inhabitants with its interpretation of the landscape. With no outer skin, no envelope, it seems no more than an interior, all the more stunning for the way it creates apparently seamless interaction with the exterior.Save this picture!© Ieva SaudargaiteSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Iwan BaanSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Iwan BaanProject gallerySee allShow lessStorberget Viewpoint and Rest Stop Area / PushakSelected ProjectsBanyan Tree Anji / ZSD + CL3 Architects + Design Department of Banyan Tree GroupSelected Projects Share Houses “COPY” “COPY” Save this picture!© Ieva Saudargaite+ 16Curated by María Francisca González Share Villa-T / YTAA – Youssef Tohme Architects and AssociatesSave this projectSaveVilla-T / YTAA – Youssef Tohme Architects and Associates Architects: YTAA – Youssef Tohme Architects and Associates Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Lebanon Projects 2013 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905402/villa-t-ytaa-youssef-tohme-architects-and-associates Clipboard Area:  3000 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Photographs:  Ieva Saudargaite, Iwan Baan Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/905402/villa-t-ytaa-youssef-tohme-architects-and-associates Clipboard Manufacturers: Vitrocsa Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Villa-T / YTAA – Youssef Tohme Architects and Associates ArchDaily Year:  Lebanon CopyAbout this officeYTAA – Youssef Tohme Architects and AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLebanonPublished on November 14, 2018Cite: “Villa-T / YTAA – Youssef Tohme Architects and Associates” 14 Nov 2018.
