FBI administrative processing

Administrative Processing FBI Name checks A DV2015 selectee from the immigration.com forum named Martin has done a bit of research on the FBI name checks. These checks are not specific to DV lottery selectees, but the information gives an insight into some of the reasons why some cases are more likely to go on AP than others. In some countries there is a high chance of AP, in other countries it will happen rarely. I have also speculated that KCC might be calling for some of these checks as part of the DS260 processing – and that might be something introduced this year with the new DS260 system. Perhaps I am giving USCIS/DoS too much credit – but if true it would at least explain why the DS260s are talking so long to process compared with the previous paper based process. That would be advantageous to DV lottery selectees because as annoying as it is waiting for the DS260 to be completed, AP is far more detrimental since many AP checks failed to finish in previous years. Starting those checks earlier in the process would give AP cases a better chance to complete in time. My thanks to Martin for this informative piece! The Office of the Secretary of State for Visa Services maintains, that the FBI background check is a necessary process for sifting out terrorists, spies, and people that illegally transfer sensitive technologies. It also claims it only affects 2% of applicants, so if you’re unlucky to be chosen, be prepared to wait 12-360 days for a response, which might be a revocation of your previously approved visa. Most times, though, you would be approved. The background check level you get depends on the application data or, specifically, nationality, you will be assigned one or more categories or class. These are code named: Mantis: (potential illegal transfer of sensitive technology) Bear (for foreign government officials, representatives to international organisations, and their families) Donkey (name hits, certain nationalities) Merlin (for refugees and asylum seekers) Eagle(certain nationals of Cuba, China, Russia, Iran, Vietnam) Condor (certain nationalities e.g. Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen.) Hawk (for immigrant visas). Horse (diplomatic visa holders of certain nationalities) Pegasus (officials of Commonwealth of Independent States) Afterwards, your information is forwarded to the pertinent agencies for a very thorough check– mostly FBI. Others could be CIA, DEA, U.S. Department of Commerce, Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, Interpol, and the Department of State’s Bureau of International Security and Non-proliferation. This is where the delay really occurs. If everything goes well, you can have your approved visa in as little as three weeks, but if there is a problem of any sort, a delay could be anything from 30 days to 360 days. The most painful part is that you don’t know exactly how long it’s going to take, and there are no step by step updates, so you are stuck in a timeless time of waiting. Here are some reasons for delay: 1. Errors in the visa submission : The US Embassy from the country you are applying might mistakenly submit your information in a wrong format (different from what the agencies want), so the agency returns the data to the embassy. This obviously prolongs the security check and approval process. This situation happens every now and then, but it seems that the various agencies are working to standardise the submission format, which would help reduce such mistakes. 2. False Hits(Especially for Visas Mantis and Visas Condor): If your name matches that of someone on the FBI’s (or any other agency’s) list, you will be subjected to more scrutiny till you are either cleared or marked as a concern to security. Imagine if you are from a country wi Copyright Britty Simon Posted by Shakir Essa

The 5 Principles of Journalism, ✔ check facts

The 5 Principles of Ethical Journalism
The core principles of ethical journalism set out below provide an excellent base for everyone who aspires to launch themselves into the public information sphere to show responsibility in how they use information.

There are hundreds of codes of conduct, charters and statements made by media and professional groups outlining the principles, values and obligations of the craft of journalism.

Most focus on five common themes:

Five Core Principles of Journalism
1. Truth and Accuracy
Journalists cannot always guarantee ‘truth’, but getting the facts right is the cardinal principle of journalism. We should always strive for accuracy, give all the relevant facts we have and ensure that they have been checked. When we cannot corroborate information we should say so.

2. Independence
Journalists must be independent voices; we should not act, formally or informally, on behalf of special interests whether political, corporate or cultural. We should declare to our editors – or the audience – any of our political affiliations, financial arrangements or other personal information that might constitute a conflict of interest.

3. Fairness and Impartiality
Most stories have at least two sides. While there is no obligation to present every side in every piece, stories should be balanced and add context. Objectivity is not always possible, and may not always be desirable (in the face for example of brutality or inhumanity), but impartial reporting builds trust and confidence.

4. Humanity
Journalists should do no harm. What we publish or broadcast may be hurtful, but we should be aware of the impact of our words and images on the lives of others.

5. Accountability
A sure sign of professionalism and responsible journalism is the ability to hold ourselves accountable. When we commit errors we must correct them and our expressions of regret must be sincere not cynical. We listen to the concerns of our audience. We may not change what readers write or say but we will always provide remedies when we are unfair.

Does journalism need new guidelines?
EJN supporters do not believe that we need to add new rules to regulate journalists and their work in addition to the responsibilities outlined above, but we do support the creation of a legal and social framework, that encourages journalists to respect and follow the established values of their craft.

In doing so, journalists and traditional media, will put themselves in a position to be provide leadership about what constitutes ethical freedom of expression. What is good for journalism is also good for others who use the Internet or online media for public communications.

Accountable Journalism
This collaborative project aims to be the world’s largest collection of ethical codes of conduct and press organisations.

The AccountableJournalism.org website has been developed as a resource to on global media ethics and regulation systems, and provides advice on ethical reporting and dealing with hate speech.
