“Tagged, humiliated and now gagged?
3 Feb 2011, 0949 hrs IST, TIMES NEWS NETWORK & AGENCIES
As if the immense pain, inconvenience and humiliation weren’t enough for the ‘duped’ Indian students in San Fransisco, the Tri-Valley nightmare seems unending. Sources have now told TIMES NOW that there has been a gag order issued against the students.”
Definition of gag order by Wikipedia – “A gag order (also known as a gagging order or suppression order) is an order, sometimes a legal order by a court or government, other times a private order by an employer or other institution, restricting information or comment from being made public.
Gag orders are often used against participants involved in a lawsuit or criminal trial. They are also a tool to prevent media from publishing unwanted information on a particular topic. A Criminal Court, for instance, will issue a gag order on the media if the judge believes that potential jurors in a future trial will be influenced by the media reporting or speculation on the early stages of a case. Another example might be to ensure police are not impeded in their investigations by media publicity about a case.
In a similar manner, a ‘gag law’ is intended to limit freedom of the press, by instituting censorship or restricting access to information.”
