The police later tried to interrogate him in the hospital on the night of October 17. He is due to appear in court on 20 October.Reporters Without Borders and the BAJ called on interior minister Uladzimir Naumau and the Belarus state prosecutor to carry out an additional investigation into the case and to determine whether the Minsk district police acted lawfully by placing an injured journalist in a special detention jail instead of giving him help. “Pavel Sheremet was the victim of provocation,” they said.Sheremet, who works for the Russian TV station Pervy Kanal, has been charged with disturbing the peace under article 156 of the civil code. But his two assailants were not charged. Interior ministry spokesman Genadz Glebchyk said they asked Sheremet for a cigarette and it was Sheremet who then insulted and attacked them. Glebchyk also said it was the two men who alerted the police.Glebchyk said he did not know the cause of the injuries for which Sheremet is being treated in the neurosurgical unit of a Minsk hospital. Many witnesses said Sheremet was in good health before his arrest.Svetlana Kalinkina, a journalist with the newspaper Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta (BDG) who saw the incident, said the police did not take statements from any of the journalists who, like her, were witnesses.This is not the first time Sheremet has been detained in Belarus. While chief of the Minsk bureau of the Russian public television station ORT, he was arrested with ORT cameraman Dmitri Zavadski on 26 July 1997 as they were preparing a report on security gaps along Belarus’ border with Lithuania. The two of them spent several months in prison.Zavadski disappeared on 7 July 2000 at Minsk airport. The investigation into his disappearance was closed earlier this year although his fate was never established and allegations of senior official involvement were not properly investigated.

PUB: 02/22/2021 09:00 AM/DISC: 02/22/2021 09:01 AM http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210222005461/en WhatsApp Facebook SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 22, 2021– New research from Canalys shows that a record 1.3 million electric vehicles (EVs) were sold in China in 2020. But year-on-year growth was modest at only 8%. In comparison, worldwide sales of EVs rocketed by 39% in 2020, as reported here. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210222005461/en/ Canalys: China’s electric vehicle sales to grow by more than 50% in 2021 after modest 2020 (Photo: Business Wire) In a new digital report, Electric vehicle outlook: 2021 and beyond, Canalys publishes detailed EV sales data, forecasts and analysis on the global market with a spotlight on key markets, including China. The Chinese government has been supportive of the transition to EVs, but several changes to EV-related policies and consumer subsidies in recent years disrupted the market and car makers struggled to build sales momentum. “The Chinese EV market in 2020 was all about two vehicles: the made-in-China Tesla Model 3, the market leader in the first half of 2020, and the Hongguang Mini EV from the SGMW joint venture (SAIC, General Motors and Wuling), the market leader in the second half of 2020, which only launched mid-year,” said Chris Jones, Chief Analyst for automotive at Canalys, “If it had not been for the huge success of these two very different EVs, the Chinese EV market would have declined in 2020. Between them, the two models represented one in five of all EVs sold in China.” The 1.3 million EVs sold in China in 2020 represented 41% of global EV sales, just behind Europe with 42% of global EV sales. China is still far ahead of the US for EV share – in the US, EV sales represented just 2.4% of sales in 2020. “Prospects are very good for China’s EV market in 2021,” said Jones. “There is already an excellent network of standardized public EV chargers in China, good government support and now a return to strong consumer demand.” Tesla has already started deliveries of the made-in-China Model Y. Production of the Hongguang Mini EV has been increased to keep up with demand, particularly from young Chinese urbanites. Other small, more affordable city cars, such as the Baojun E-Series from SGMW and the Ora R1 from Great Wall Motors (GWM), are also proving very popular. The Ora R1, touted as the world’s cheapest EV, will also soon go on sale in India, where the EV share was less than 0.5% of all cars sold in 2020. Canalys forecasts 1.9 million EVs will be sold in China in 2021, growth of 51% and a 9% share of all cars sold in China. “With a share of just 6.3% of all passenger cars sold in China in 2020, EVs have many years of growth ahead,” said Sandy Fitzpatrick, VP at Canalys. “But with Tesla expanding its portfolio in China, it will be hard for competitors offering premium EVs to gain market share. With that in mind, some Chinese car makers are already looking for growth opportunities in other parts of the world, especially Europe,” said Fitzpatrick. China is still the world’s largest car market. 30% of global car sales were in China in 2020, up from 27% in 2019. The overall Chinese car market will return to sales growth in 2021.

The UK esports company announced its $2.7m (2.1m) purchase of the entire issued share capital of CEVO, a USA-based global provider of services and technology to the esports industry.The acquisition of CEVO includes technologies such as its tournament management system, its anti-cheat software – used by a number of major operators in the industry (including Gfinity) – and a range of esports broadcast products.CEVO has been involved with Gfinity in the past, such as for last year’s CEVO Gfinity Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Pro League and Gfinity Elite Series.

Quite notably, ESL, which is a member of ESIC, has changed its sanctions accordingly. ESL will also be lifting the indefinite ban on ex-IBUYPOWER players, and tournament rules for all events will differ from August 1st. You can read the full details of ESL’s statement on the matter here.  On the matter of IBUYPOWER (IBP), ESIC recommended that the banned players are unbanned and allowed to re-enter professional CS:GO from August 1st. ESL has confirmed that it concurs with this and the bans will be lifted. ESIC argued that “whilst the players are clearly culpable and should have known better, the rules surrounding this sort of activity were not clear at the time, no education had been provided to the players and the procedures used to sanction them were not transparent and did not comply with principles of natural justice”.Read the full article here.Overwatch League announces details of player remunerationCredit: BlizzardBlizzard’s Overwatch League has taken another leap with details of player remuneration policy as well as benefits that each player will be legally entitled to under league regulation. he release from Blizzard outlines a few key benefits that are included in the Overwatch League Player Agreement.
