La méthode DCBA propose de transformer les communautés et les…

first_img Youth Minister Lorton, VA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Curate Diocese of Nebraska Myra B. Garnes, canon du Diocèse de Long Island pour les jeunes et les ministères de jeunes adultes, à gauche et la Rév. Diane Higgins-Shaffer, diacre du Diocèse d’Oregon, travaillent sur un exercice d’esprit d’équipe au cours d’un atelier Called to Transformation de formation des formateurs en Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts qui s’est tenu du 13 au 16 juin. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Federal Way, État de Washington] Un nouvel outil utilisé par un nombre croissant de congrégations de l’Église épiscopale invite les Épiscopaliens à modifier leur approche du travail missionnaire : Ne vous précipitez pas à évaluer les besoins pour concevoir des programmes qui répondent à ces besoins, au lieu de cela, écoutez, développez des relations, trouvez les atouts de l’autre et discernez de quelle façon ces atouts peuvent servir à renforcer ensemble la communauté.« L’approche DCBA est une approche qui nous demande de regarder et d’approcher le monde différemment » explique le Rév. Canon E. Mark Stevenson lors d’un récent atelier de Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts intitulé Called to Transformation qui s’est tenu dans la région de Seattle.« Notre travail n’est pas de passer de la pénurie à l’abondance, ça c’est le travail de Dieu. Dieu nous a donné ce dont nous avons besoin en toute circonstance, en tout lieu » ajoute Mark Stevenson, directeur des Ministères épiscopaux de migration. « Dieu nous a donné suffisamment et si nous offrons ce don à Dieu, Dieu le transforme en abondance ».Il ne s’agit pas là d’une attitude naïve ou d’un optimisme absolu par rapport aux problèmes auxquels sont confrontés les populations et les communautés, poursuit-il : la méthode DCBA n’est « pas simplement de nourrir ceux qui ont faim ou de loger ceux qui sont sans abri, elle est de développer la capacité de la communauté à offrir un environnement d’opportunités pour tous ».Notre travail consiste à cultiver un espace où tout un chacun sache qu’il est aimé et respecté parce qu’il est un enfant de Dieu et qu’il a « la capacité non pas d’être servi mais de donner ses atouts au service » de sa communauté, ajoute-t-il. L’approche DCBA est de se détourner d’une solution rapide en faveur d’une transformation à long terme.Mark Stevenson nous dit que le travail DCBA ressemble plus à un pèlerinage qu’à du tourisme, c’est-à-dire que ceux qui « font du travail d’entraide » auprès d’une communauté doivent arriver comme des pèlerins prêts à être vulnérables et prêts à apprendre des membres de la communauté dans laquelle ils sont arrivés.Il est facile d’être poussé à croire que seules certaines personnes qui ont accès à des ressources spécifiques, comme de l’argent, peuvent faire quelque chose pour régler les problèmes du monde, dit aux participants à l’atelier de Seattle Sean McConnell, Directeur senior de la participation auprès d’Episcopal Relief & Development qui organise les ateliers conjointement avec l’Église épiscopale.Sean McConnell explique que les membres du personnel d’Episcopal Relief & Development voient les communautés avec lesquelles ils travaillent de par le monde comme des communautés remplies de gens qui ont l’espoir que leur communauté peut s’améliorer malgré certains déficits évidents. « La clef est l’espoir » nous confie-t-il.Sur quoi il ajoute : « L’une des étapes initiales du processus DCBA est de faire l’inventaire des atouts de la communauté et des personnes qui la composent, sur tous les plans allant des gens aux terrains, des bâtiments aux confessions, de l’argent aux relations et de l’influence politique aux passions, plutôt que de déterminer les besoins et les déficits ».Le Rév. Bill Osborne, Diocèse of Spokane, en bas à gauche, Suzy Ward, Diocèse de San Joaquin, en haut à gauche, Allan Miles, Diocèse d’Oregon, en haut à droite et Candice Corrigan, Diocèse d’Olympia, en bas à droite, dressent un inventaire du Dumas Bay Centre de Federal Way (État de Washington), le lieu de réunion de l’atelier Called to Transformation de formation des formateurs en Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts qui s’est tenu en juin. L’inventaire des atouts est une technique DCBA qui permet de découvrir les ressources d’une communauté. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceSi l’on fait uniquement l’inventaire des besoins d’une communauté, nous met en garde Sean McConnell, cela débouche sur des financements par catégories qui forcent les gens à être en concurrence pour obtenir de l’argent d’une manière qui nuit au développement de relations et favorise au lieu de cela des cycles de dépendance et de désespoir. Un inventaire des atouts ouvre la voie à une vision créatrice de la façon d’utiliser l’abondance pour atteindre des objectifs et imaginer de nouvelles formes de ministères.Un exemple d’approche DCBA en action dont les participants à l’atelier ont retenu les enseignements est celui du « 32nd Avenue Jubilee Center » dans le Nord-Ouest de Denver (État du Colorado). Le centre s’est développé à partir de la mission et du ministère de l’église Our Merciful Savior Episcopal Church qui en 2013 s’est trouvée avec moins de fidèles et aux prises avec des difficultés financières. Lelanda Lee, vice-présidente du Conseil du centre et ancien membre du Conseil exécutif de l’Église épiscopale qui avait aidé d’autres parties de l’église à utiliser la méthode DCBA, suggéra d’avoir recours à cette méthode pour faire participer les habitants du quartier à envisager l’avenir du centre.Le processus initial a pris un an et, comme Lelanda Lee l’a dit par vidéo aux participants à l’atelier de Seattle, a montré aux participants que la méthode DCBA est un processus continu de participation, de conversation, de réflexion et de réengagement communautaire.L’acte même de poser des questions sur les espoirs qu’ont les gens pour leur communauté et les atouts qu’ils peuvent apporter pour réaliser ces rêves a commencé à changer les gens tout comme la communauté, nous ont dit les participants. Le centre a appris qu’il était une partie neutre et un leader reconnu dans la communauté qui pouvait continuer à être l’organisateur des conversations visant à promouvoir les relations entre les nombreuses voix du quartier.De plus amples détails sur le projet pilote DCBA du 32nd Avenue Jubilee Center et ses idées se trouvent ici.Vingt-sept personnes laïques et du clergé de toute l’Église épiscopale ont rejoint six membres du personnel au Dumas Bay Centre de Federal Way (État de Washington), du 13 au16 juin pour un atelier Called to Transformation de formation des formateurs en Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceApplication des méthodes DCBALes Rév. Hunter Ruffin et Janet Tidwell sont d’ardents défenseurs des méthodes de Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts.Pour Janet Tidwell, l’un des sept membres du Diocèse d’Atlanta qui ont participé au récent atelier Called to Transformation à Denver, la méthode DCBA commence par inverser ce que les gens pensent de l’efficacité et de l’orientation de leurs travaux missionnaires. La question implicite que cela pose sur le ministère dans lequel ils sont engagés est, nous dit-elle, la suivante : « Cela fonctionne pour vous mais est-ce que cela fonctionne pour les gens avec qui vous essayer de travailler ? »Janet Tidwell, l’une des archidiacres du diocèse, a appris que les gens dans le besoin apparent espèrent établir une relation avec d’autres personnes qui vont rester en contact avec eux plutôt que simplement être les bénéficiaires de travaux de charité de la part de gens qui vont ensuite partir. La méthode DCBA offre également aux gens l’opportunité de donner en retour à leur communauté plutôt que d’uniquement dépendre de l’aide de l’extérieur.Comme l’ont dit Janet Tidwell que Hunter Ruffin, cette approche représente un défi pour bon nombre de comités de services d’entraide.« Il vous faut vraiment vendre cette idée aux paroisses, » nous confie Jane Tidwell, parce qu’elles ont travaillé selon la théorie que les membres se rendent dans une communauté, disent aux résidents ce dont ils ont besoin et le leur donnent, ajoutant « Il est important que les gens comprennent qu’il ne s’agit pas d’une nouvelle aide ponctuelle ».La Rév. Sue Thompson, Diocèse d’Olympia et Spencer Cantrell, étudiant au General Theological Seminary du Diocèse de l’Est du Tennessee, travaillent sur un exercice d’esprit d’équipe au cours d’un atelier Called to Transformation de formation des formateurs en Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts qui s’est tenu du 13 au 16 juin. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceEt une personne qui assiste à un atelier DCBA ne reviendra pas chez elle avec un plan séquentiel bien développé pour assurer des services d’entraide à la paroisse et à la communauté, prévient-elle. Ce qu’elle rapportera, ce seront quelques idées sur la façon de commencer à connaître la communauté et à instaurer le genre de confiance qui permet à la communauté de faire valoir ses atouts.Hunter Ruffin, qui va bientôt célébrer sa première année de prêtrise et est associé pour la mission et le service d’entraide à St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church à Houston (État du Texas), est d’accord que de s’orienter vers les méthodes DCBA signifie que l’on se détourne de nombreuses attitudes et hypothèses relatives au service d’entraide. Ceci est tout particulièrement vrai, nous dit-i, dans une paroisse comme celle de St. Michael & All Angels qui a les ressources pour « simplement décider de faire quelque chose et le faire pratiquement d’un jour à l’autre ».Après avoir assisté à l’atelier Called to Transformation de St. Louis, Hunter Ruffin a commencé à travailler avec l’équipe de direction mission et service d’entraide de la paroisse, équipe qui est chargée de discerner où Dieu demande à St. Michael d’être dans l’ensemble de la communauté.« Ce que nous devons faire c’est extraire les gens de leurs propres tranchées, » nous confie-t-il car, comme dans presque chaque paroisse, « les gens sont vraiment attachés à leurs services d’entraide ». Notre travail n’est pas de critiquer leurs efforts mais de les aider à prendre suffisamment de recul pour qu’ils se posent des questions sur leur efficacité, ajoute Hunter Ruffin.En travaillant tout d’abord avec ce groupe puis avec le conseil paroissial et ensuite avec la paroisse tout entière, Hunter Ruffin aide à engager le processus d’inventaire des ressources et des atouts. Il espère que plus tard la Pentecôte sera le centre d’attention de cette idée naissante que l’« argent n’est pas la seule monnaie que nous pouvons échanger » et au lieu de cela la monnaie qui a de la valeur, ce sont les ressources de toutes sortes offertes dans le service aux autres.Quel conseil donner à d’autres pratiquants potentiels de la méthode DCBA ? Ne venez pas chercher la toute dernière nouveauté de ministère ; au lieu de cela, venez chercher les moyens de « véritablement habiliter votre paroisse à reconnaître ses atouts au sein de la communauté dans son ensemble » et soyez prêt à aller lentement et à essuyer des rejets.Soyez également prêt, ajoute Hunter Ruffin, pour la « voix contre-culturelle qui dit « ralentis, prie, écoute, répète ».Le Rév. Joshua Kingsley, Diocèse d’Oregon, à droite, et Greg Rhodes, Diocèse d’Olympia, partagent un déjeuner dans le jardin urbain de St. Mark’s Cathedral à Seattle au cours d’un atelier Called to Transformation de formation des formateurs en Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts qui s’est tenu en juin. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceForme des ateliersL’atelier Called to Transformation est un partenariat entre l’Église épiscopale et l’Episcopal Relief & Development. Les ateliers sont conçus pour former les leaders de ces méthodes et outils visant à améliorer les ministères et missions locaux pour qu’ils travaillent non seulement dans leur propre communauté mais qu’ils soient des formateurs pour d’autres communautés qui bénéficieraient de cette approche.Les participants se réunissent généralement le premier soir pour une Eucharistie d’ouverture et autres travaux d’introduction. Le premier jour complet de l’atelier est, pour reprendre les termes de Mark Stevenson, un énorme déversement d’informations sur l’approche DCBA accompagné d’exercices individuels et de groupe pour commencer à travailler avec les concepts de la méthodologie et tout particulièrement l’idée d’un inventaire des atouts de la communauté. Les participants passent la majeure partie du deuxième jour complet en déplacement dans la communauté locale pour rendre visite aux organisations, tant séculaires que confessionnelles, qui ont eu recours à la méthode DCBA pour façonner leurs travaux. L’atelier conclut par une séance d’une demi-journée passée à commencer à concevoir un plan de mise en application d’un projet propre de Développement communautaire basé sur les atouts.Deux autres ateliers DCBA Called to Transformation sont programmés pour 2016. L’inscription est ouverte pour l’atelier du 8 au 11 août qui se tiendra à la Nashotah House à Milwaukee (État du Wisconsin). Un autre atelier est prévu pour l’automne.Pour en savoir davantageLe site Web Called to Transformation dispose d’un certain nombre de ressources ici.La trousse à outils et le processus de formation des formateurs qui se trouvent sur le site Web ont été développés par l’Église épiscopale et Episcopal Relief & Development avec l’aide du Beecken Center de l’École de Théologie de l’University of the South.Episcopal Relief & Development offre ici une explication sur la façon dont elle utilise les méthodes DCBA, avec quelques récits illustrant son utilisation.– La Rév.

All Blacks disappointed after low-scoring win over Italy

first_imgSunday Jun 28, 2009 All Blacks disappointed after low-scoring win over Italy New Zealand put in an unconvincing display as they beat Italy 27-6 at Lancaster Park in Christchurch on Saturday. It was the lowest NZ score against the Italians in their last ten matches, and the first time theyve failed to score more than fifty points.Joe Rokocoko, Isaac Ross, and George Whitelock crossed for tries with Luke McAllister adding three conversions and two penalties. Australian born Italian fullback Luke Mclean scored the points for his side with a penalty in each half.The All Blacks will have been hoping for a better performance ahead of the upcoming Tri Nations, but struggled to find their rhythm and tried too hard at times.“We put a lot of pressure on ourselves by trying to run it from everywhere and that probably reflected in the score at halftime,” said captain Mils Muliaina“There were a lot of opportunities there but we just didn’t execute and it’s very disappointing.”Italian coach Nick Mallet was happy with the way his side performed, and satisfied with the outcome of the three Test tour.“Everything has to be taken into perspective. Italy is a small rugby nation…and to come on a tour like this, Australia, Australia, New Zealand, and to concede just an average of 30 points in each game is a fantastic effort,” he said.“I’m incredibly proud of them. The coaching staff were very happy with the way we hung in there.“It was a dry night, dry ball and a very good attacking New Zealand side. We got beaten by 70 points in the World Cup so we had a lot of pride to get back.“Conceding 13 points in the first half and 14 in the second, I’m very happy with that.” Time: 05:14ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Situated in Ranchi, a city in East India, Ishatvam 9 is a residential building on a small plot of 1800 sqm. Most of the plot frontage along the main road is occupied by an existing petrol pump leaving just a driveway for access with a square shaped space beyond which is buildable upon. Save this picture!© Dinesh MehtaMost of this city has existed with low rise development over the last few decades. However, the last few years have witnessed rapid urbanization and in response to this the governing rules which earlier allowed buildings of only 15m height and a buildable area equivalent to the plot size have been changed to allow 50m height as well as a buildable area 3 times the plot size.Save this picture!Even Floor PlanSave this picture!Odd Floor PlanThese changed rules necessitated building a 15 storeyed building. Most of the city’s inhabitants have been used to living in individual houses with private gardens and open spaces. As a result of this, the few high rise residential buildings that have been constructed in this city still remain partially unoccupied due to the lack of private open spaces in them.Save this picture!© Dinesh MehtaAs a response to this need, the apartments have been designed to occupy a complete floor opening out on all sides with each room extending into twenty feet high, double height decks. Each of the internal spaces thus extends and into private sheltered open spaces.Save this picture!© Dinesh MehtaTemperatures in Ranchi vary from 31ºC average in the summer months and 12ºC in the winter months. The extended decks for each room shelter the internal spaces from the excessive heat in the summer while becoming landscaped outdoor extensions to the rooms.Save this picture!© Dinesh MehtaThe apartments are designed with minimal internal circulation spaces with a large living dining area located centrally from which all the rooms are accessed. This layout is done in response to the social habits of the people in the city where 3 generations are generally living together in the same house. The living room becomes the focal place within the house allowing for increased interaction between the various family members. Most of the existing development around the plot being low rise, each apartment has views of the openness of the surroundings in each direction. Save this picture!© Dinesh MehtaIshatvam 9 is designed in response to the social needs of the residents of the city of its location providing each apartment with 20% open area as extensions to the internal spaces, maximizing on natural light and air with cross ventilation to every room in the house, creating an urban high rise tower that will allow its users the openness of the low rise structures that they have been used to living in. Project gallerySee allShow lessMultifunctional Gallery Space in Tehran / Kazem KeyhaniSelected ProjectsCall for Entries: Hong Kong Young Architects & Designers CompetitionBuilt Projects & MasterplansProject locationAddress:Ranchi, Jharkhand, IndiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Even in houses, where functionalism is celebrated, it seems that each space has its own purpose: to sleep, to eat, to watch TV, to read a book. Is it possible to simply assign functions and assume them? Although it is a building that we use every day, its appearance five, ten or thirty years from now will change more than we can imagine.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiIt is precisely because it is a house that we want to create an architecture that will be open to the many changes in our lives. When we visited the site, we were struck by the beauty of the flatland with its pleasant breezes and Mount Izumi Katsuragi in the background.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiSave this picture!Plan – First floorSave this picture!© Norihito YamauchiThe horizontal roof extends to cover the whole house, inside and out. The maximum height of the floor, calculated from the slenderness ratio according to the specifications, ensures an air volume of 1.5 layers. The roof structure is made of LVL material, which is used for the roof structure.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiThe roof structure is a rectangular volume made of LVL transverse members and structural plywood, with a 2.2m cantilevered steel structure using lipped groove steel. The facade is divided into upper and lower sections to create a blind fence, which allows the view of Mt. The windows, flooring, furniture and walls are designed to make it easy for visitors to come and go as they please.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Norihito YamauchiThe space is designed to be a place where people can sit, talk, study, store, lie down and enjoy the outside, crossing the large spatial scale that covers the whole space and the physical and furniture scale that accompanies human activity. A space that allows for a variety of activities and a choice of places, creates a comfortable distance and time for each other, and leads to a richness of life even in the face of unpredictable changes.Save this picture!© Norihito YamauchiProject gallerySee allShow lessMerging Craftsmanship and Modern Materials: New Tile Collection by FAP CeramicheArticlesTongzhou SINLOON Canal Creative District / officePROJECTSelected Projects Share CopyHouses•Osaka, Japan Houses 1+ House / SAI Architectural Design Office Japan “COPY” Save this picture!© Norihito Yamauchi+ 19Curated by Hana Abdel Share Photographscenter_img ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/958991/1-plus-house-sai-architectural-design-office Clipboard “COPY” Designers: SAI Architectural Design Office Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Area:  112 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Norihito Yamauchi Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2019 CopyAbout this officeSAI Architectural Design OfficeOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOsakaOn FacebookJapanPublished on March 24, 2021Cite: “1+ House / SAI Architectural Design Office” 24 Mar 2021.

Whilst overall giving is down, according to the authoritative CAF study, I believe online giving has so much potential to help close the donations gap and help charities continue with essential front line services.”Virgin Money Giving was achieving a Gift Aid conversion rate of 85%. Barnett said that this compared well to the 39% average for all giving reported by the CAF UK Giving Report. Top sportsVirgin Money reports that running, and marathon running in particular, is still the most popular reason for setting up a fundraising page. This year however has seen a 33% increase in the number of donations to fundraisers undertaking cycling activities, perhaps inspired by British success in the Olympics and Tour de France.

China: journalist Zhen Jianghua detained without trial for one year

first_imgNews China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Beijing to release journalist Zhen Jianghua, who has been detained without trial for a year and prevented from seeing a lawyer of his choice, at a charge of potentially costing 15 years of imprisonment. ChinaAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures RSF_en Follow the news on China Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Help by sharing this information News This Saturday, September 1st, will mark the first year in detention for journalist Zhen Jianghua, who has been accused of “inciting subversion of state power,” a charge for which he risks 15 years in prison. Beijing reproached him for managing the Human Rights Campaign in China, a website that lists violations of human rights in China, and Across the Great Firewall, an online media that teaches its readers how to circumvent censorship and avoid surveillance.Zhen’s trial, which was initially scheduled to take place in early August, was postponed without a date. Four independent lawyers who successively offered to defend him were rejected by authorities on the pretext that their assistance “would slow down the investigation.” The police is also putting pressure on the detainees’ family members to dissuade them from assisting him.”By preventing the journalist from consulting a lawyer of his choice, the regime of President Xi Jinping violates the rights of defense that are expressly enshrined in the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China”, said Cédric Alviani, the head of Reporters Without Borders (RSF)’s East Asia bureau, who also urged the international community “to enhance its pressure on the Chinese authorities so they release Zhen and the other detained journalists.”Zhen Jianghua was arrested in Zhuhai on September 1st, 2017. In a month, he was placed under “residential surveillance in a designated location (RSDL),” which are in fact Chinese black prisons where detainees are placed in isolation, deprived of their rights and sometimes tortured. By the Chinese Code of Criminal Procedure, the maximum duration of such detention is six months.China ranks 176th out of 180 countries in the 2018 RSF World Press Freedom Index, with more than 50 journalists detained in conditions that pose a threat to their lives. to go further Organisation ChinaAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalistsInternet June 2, 2021 Find out more August 30, 2018 China: journalist Zhen Jianghua detained without trial for one year News April 27, 2021 Find out more March 12, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alertslast_img read more

Journalist arrested in Quetta

However, it has been learned that the chief of police file charges, on 14 June, against Mr. Shahghasi, managing editor of the Urdu-language daily Bakhabar, that Rashid Butt works for. Journalists in Quetta are still refusing to cover police activities, and have begun a series of public demonstrations. ________________________________________________________05.06.2002Rashid Butt was released the 3 June, in the evening. Local journalists are intervening with the authorities to obtain the lift of his charges. ________________________________________________________03.06.2002Reporters Without Borders has protested to the Balochistan Provincial Governor, Amir Ul Mulk Mengal, about the arrest of journalist Rashid Butt. “By arresting a journalist for reporting on their failure to act, the security forces have not chosen the best means of demonstrating their competence”, says Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders. The organisation which defends press freedom has called for the journalist to be released without delay and for the First Information Report filed against him to be withdrawn. According to information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Rashid Butt, a reporter for the local daily papers Bakhabar and Lashkar, was arrested at his office in Quetta (the capital of the province of Balochistan in the south-west of the country) on 1 June 2002. According to a colleague, he was taken into custody under articles 500, 501 and 502 of the criminal code and article 16 of the Maintenance of Public Order Act (MPO). A First Information Report has been filed against him. Quetta’s Chief of Police, Abid Ali, stated in the local press that the journalist had been arrested for “writing an article against law-enforcing agencies”, which he criticised for their incompetence in dealing with the problems experienced by the province in maintaining public order. “He has tried to create panic by publishing a baseless article”, the Chief of Police added. The arrest has been strongly condemned by journalists in Quetta, in particular the Balochistan Union of Journalists. Reporters Without Borders wishes to draw attention to the fact that the British journalist of Indian origin, Amardeep Bassey, and his two guides who were arrested on 10 May 2002, are still being detained in a cell in Khyber House, the seat of the representative of the Federal Government responsible for the Khyber tribal area, in Peshawar.
