Sri Lankan national broadcaster SLBC has started relaying BBC World radio on FM band. The relaying starts the BBC English, Sinhala and Tamil programmes after a 14 month break. The BBC suspended its rebroadcast in February last year.
The BBC programmes were suspended in February last year "following deliberate interference in its broadcasts," BBC said in a statement.
During the suspension, the BBC's services in all three languages remained available in Sri Lanka via short wave; on bbc.com/news, bbcsinhala.com and bbctamil.com via the Internet; and news bulletins in English via the Sri Lankan commercial broadcaster MBC.
Director of BBC Global News Peter Horrocks said that the BBC wishes to rebuild its partnership with SLBC.
"We have been reassured by SLBC that our contractual agreement will be respected, which guarantees that our programmes in English, Sinhala, and Tamil are broadcast uninterrupted," he said. Mr. Horrocks added that the BBC audiences value the editorial intergrity of its programming.
"Our audiences understand that in order to cover news events in the most comprehensive and balanced way, the BBC adheres to specific editorial values that include impartiality, editorial independence and seeking a relevant range of views on any topic," he said. [Daily Mirror 15/04 via Jaisakthivel]
Diez emisoras locales, entre ellas Radio Shabelle, Radio Cuerno de África, Simba Radio, Tusmo Radio y Dana Radio, abrieron sus emisiones de hoy sin música, según dijeron a Efe en sus oficinas.
Sólo dos emisoras oficiales y con protección armada, la gubernamental Radio Mogadiscio y la Bar Kulan Radio, de la Misión de la Unión Africana en Somalia (AMISOM), siguen emitiendo música en Mogadiscio.
El presentador de Radio Shabelle, al abrir la programación, dijo.
"Bienvenidos a Radio Shabelle, hoy es nuestro primer día de los días sin música. Pedimos perdón a nuestra querida audiencia, pero deben entender que es una orden de Hezb al Islam".
Hezb al Islam es una milicia radical islámica somalí, encabezada por Hassan Dahir Aweys, que lucha para derrocar al Gobierno Federal de Transición, apoyado por la comunidad internacional, y para imponer un estricto régimen musulmán de corte wahabí.
Aweys está en la lista de terroristas del Departamento de Estado de Estados Unidos y su grupo está aliado contra el Gobierno con Al Shabab, otra milicia radical vinculada a Al Qaeda, con la que, por otro lado, se disputa el control de algunas zonas en el sur y centro de Somalia.
Muchos habitantes de Mogadiscio manifestaron su queja ante la suspensión de la emisión de música, como en el caso de Yusuf Omar, un universitario que dijo a Efe: "Es una violación de los derechos del pueblo a estar informado" y aseguró que espera "el momento en que Al Shabab sea derrotada y expulsada de Mogadiscio, como sus hermanos mayores (los talibanes) lo fueron de Kabul".
El Gobierno Transitorio, que encabeza el presidente Sharif Sheikh Ahmed y que no tiene prácticamente control territorial en el país, condenó por su parte las presiones y amenazas a los medios.
El ministro de Información, Dahir Mohamud Gelle, dijo que "el país está en su peor momento. Los medios independientes no pueden trabajar en Mogadiscio, pero esperamos poder acabar con esta presión y restaurar la paz en nuestra ciudad".
Las organizaciones de periodistas locales han pedido a Hezb al Islam y Al Shabab, que realizan periódicas amenazas y prohibiciones a los medios de comunicación, que dejen de acorralarlos.
Dahir Alasow, presidente de la Asociación de Periodistas Somalíes, dijo hoy a Efe que "estamos muy preocupados por el incremento de la presión sobre los medios. Esto es lo peor que nos ha tocado vivir, pero esperamos que la justicia llegue y castigue a estos demonios".
En los últimos años, Somalia ha sido uno de los países del mundo con más periodistas asesinados, la mayoría pertenecientes a estaciones de radio, y en muchos casos han sido atribuidos a pistoleros de Al Shabab y Hezb al Islam.
Hoy mismo, Moalim Hashi Mohamed Farah, autoproclamado gobernador de Hezb al Islam en Mogadiscio, que el pasado 3 de abril dio diez días a las radios locales para dejar de emitir música, dijo a Efe que cualquier emisora que lo haga "se enfrentará a serios castigos".
Por su parte, Al Shabab prohibió la semana pasada escuchar y emitir a la BBC británica y a la Voz de América estadounidense en las zonas del centro y el sur del país bajo su control.
"Desde hoy, todas las estaciones locales de la BBC y la Voz de América están cerradas y sus equipos quedan confiscados para evitar su diabólica información y propaganda", señalaba el viernes pasado un comunicado del grupo. EFE [Romero]

PARLIAMENTARY Committee on Broadcasting and Information Services chairperson Mwansa Kapeya has expressed concern at the collapse of ZNBC's radio one signal to rural areas like Mpika.
In an interview from Mpika, Kapeya, who is PF member of parliament for Mpika and a former broadcaster who worked for ZNBC for 38 years, blamed the government for the corporation's lack of radio spare parts.
"Radio has proved to be the most significant media in disseminating informative and educative programmes to majority of Zambians. For the first time in the history of radio signal delivery in this country, large parts of the Zambian community especially the rural area has been completely cut off from knowing what is happening in and outside Zambia by ZNBC radio.
In short, ZNBC radio has completely collapsed," Kapeya said. "When broadcasting was cared for by previous governments, spare parts for radio transmitters were procured expressly to ensure minimum service outage. The short wave services have been off air since February 1, 2010 and as I speak to you the situation is still the same."
He said the government had neglected rural people who depended on ZNBC radio one.
"What I have noticed is that the problem with our current government is that of indecision. It's very difficult for our government to make a decision on how to buy the required spare parts from the suppliers in the United States of America," he said.
Kapeya asked the government to quickly address the radio signal problems. "As a veteran broadcaster myself, who served ZNBC for 38 years, I have always advised those concerned especially the government never to use methods that will tend to push away credible spare parts suppliers for radio and encouraging dubious dealers in substandard products," Kapeya said.
"Public efficiency is being adversely affected in the name of checks and balances. For this kind of inertia by our government is a clear indicator that this MMD government has completely neglected rural areas from where they command a lot of support during general elections."
He commended The Post for its role in information dissemination to urban and rural Zambia.
"We in Mpika are so grateful to The Post newspaper for being the only media providing valuable information to the people of Mpika on a daily basis including other rural districts, which are completely cut off by ZNBC radio. The Post is the only media that we depend on here in Mpika," said Kapeya. Source: http://www.postzambia.com/post-read_article.php?articleId=8106 [Gaviria]
