Namibian public service sector observes safety, hygiene measures against COVID-19

Windhoek, June 24 (Xinhua) The Namibian public service has taken safety and hygiene measures to protect people from the swelling coronavirus pandemic.
Gerard Vries, director of education, arts and culture in Khomas region, said that the ministry was taking steps to ensure that schools were disinfected.
"We have also established the social distancing protocols, which teachers and learners have become comfortable with and a norm in our public institutions," Vries said.
Remote learning has grown popular amid the coronavirus outbreak.
"Schools and teachers continue to facilitate online learning for learners in lower grades," said Edda Bohn, deputy executive director for formal education in the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture.
Utoni Nujoma, minister of labor, industrial relations and employment creation, said it is crucial that institutions put safety and hygiene measures in place.
Selma Shilongo, a public servant, said the institution where she works provided face masks and sanitizer dispensers, while Matias Gabes, who works as an information technology technician, said he was offered with gloves and freehand sanitizers.
Apart from designated mobile sanitation dispensers and units, institutions also tightened safety protocols for visitors.

B’desh: 'Deaths in crossfire' in name of anti-drug campaign galore

09 Aug 2020 | 4:32 PM

Dhaka, Aug 9 (UNI) Many people allegedly died in crossfire in the name of anti-drug campaign, though the government of Bangladesh has always claimed that its law enforcers do not work outside the law.
Rapid Action Battalion (RAB), an elite force, is one of the law enforcing agencies in the country.
A 35-year-old man named Suleiman (pseudonym) lived in a slum in Dhaka with his eight-year-old daughter. According to his family, he struggled to collect his daily meal.
Suleiman's family told Amnesty International, a UK-based human rights group, that he had called a family member before he was killed in a so-called gunfight, that police had demanded a bribe of BDT 20,000 in exchange for his release.
