    Making a special appeal to the media

    Making a special appeal to the media, Yasin Bhatkal’s father and uncle said that the media should desist from conducting a trial of its own, and instead, “allow a free and fair trial”.

    Does above sentence mean, otherwise what does it mean exactly?

    While Yasin Bhatkal's father was making a special appeal to the media, Yasin Bhatkal’s father and uncle said that the media should desist from conducting a trial of its own, and instead, “allow a free and fair trial”.

    It doesn't matter who actually spoke the words (they would not both have spoken them at the same time); it would have been made clear earlier that they were both of the same mind.

    Here present participle of "make" has been used. But I don't know why it is necessary to use present participle of "making" here. Please let me know.
    Thanks
