Computers, mobile phones, TVs and games consoles are also among the top items stolen.Nearly half of burglaries (46 per cent) occur between 5pm and 11pm.The figures are being published to coincide with the launch of An Garda Síochána’s annual winter public awareness campaign, Lock Up and Light Up, which is part of Operation Thor.Crime prevention officers with An Garda Siochana say that as the days get shorter they would urge homeowners to make sure their home looks occupied. Use timer switches to turn on lights, lock all doors and windows, store keys away from windows and letterboxes, and use your alarm.Launched in November 2015, Operation Thor is a national multi-strand anti-crime initiative which actively targets organised crime gangs and repeat offenders. It involves a wide-range of enforcement, crime prevention and public awareness measures.In Limerick, Operation Thor has resulted in thousands of arrests since its launch but Gardai want homeowners to remain vigilant.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has given liberty to the Petitioner to approach the appropriate forum on case there is a violation of legal provisions concerning arrest in any individual case. Filed by Mr Abhijit Mishra, the present petition seeks a direction to be issued to the Central Government for establishing a standard procedure for making arrests. The Petitioner also sought for a direction to be issued to the Commissioner of Police to provide standard procedures for arrest along with matrix on police accountability to all the police stations in the State. It was submitted by the Petitioner that he had filed an RTI application seeking information regarding the awareness of the police officers about the arrest procedures. It appeared from the response given to the RTI application, the Petitioner submitted, that the police officers at level as high as the level of Deputy Commissioner were not aware of whether any circular has been issued for setting out standard procedures for arrest or not. Therefore, the Petitioner also demanded the Commissioner of Police to publish a list of advocates empanelled with the Delhi State Legal Services Authority available at every police station. It is the case of the Petitioner that Articles 21, 22 and 39A of the Constitution, as well as the Sections 50, 50(8), 60(8), 207 and 208 of the Criminal Procedure Code have not been complied with in letter and spirit by the concerned authorities. The petition states that: ‘The guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court in various judgments such as DK Basu, Arnesh Kumar, etc, for circulating standards of arrest procedures in every police station has not been compiled with. Even the National Human Rights Commission has taken suo moto cognizance in many matters where the procedures of arrest were violated.’ It was further argued by the Petitioner that in many cases FIRs are not even uploaded on the website of the Delhi Police. Appearing for Delhi Police, Mr Rahul Mehra submitted that there’s already a Standing Order in place by the Delhi Government which addresses the guidelines laid down in all the cases cited by the Petitioner.

16-year-old girl presumed dead after wave knocks her into Lake Michigan

first_imgespiegle/iStock(GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.) — Two friends were making their first visit to Lake Michigan when they were swept into the water. One of the teens, a 16-year-old girl, hasn’t been seen for over 24 hours. The friends were on the Holland State Park pier, near Grand Rapids, at about 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday when a large wave knocked them into the water, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. One friend was able to climb out of the water and seek help, sheriff’s officials said, but 16-year-old Eliza Trainer was swept away and is presumed to have drowned. “This is a recovery at this point,” Ottawa County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jay Douglas told reporters on Thursday.The survivor was taken to a hospital and has since been released, Douglas said. The friends — from another part of the state — were there to see Lake Michigan for the first time, Douglas said.Crews are searching for Trainer Friday by using sonar on boats and by monitoring the shoreline, Ottawa County Sheriff’s Capt. Jake Sparks told ABC News. Drones were used in the search on Thursday, he said. The high waves are “making it really difficult to get divers in the water,” Sparks said. Douglas warned Thursday, “Lake Michigan isn’t a joke.” “These conditions are not conducive to being out on the pier,” Douglas said. “The waves are breaking over the pier. Add that to being out there at night, it’s a very dangerous situation.” “This is a great example of the dangers of winter weather — cold water is dangerous,” Bryan Swintek, a Coast Guard search and rescue mission coordinator, told ABC News. He said Lake Michigan was about 39 degrees that night. “Somebody’s ability to survive in that water is about one hour without a life jacket on,” Swintek said. Swintek urges those heading to Lake Michigan to be prepared with the right equipment and clothing, and to have a communication plan.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Bad week for online agent

first_imgOnline estate agent eMoov is under pressure for making unsubstantiated and misleading claims to home sellers over fees and asking prices, while their lodged complaint with the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) against OnTheMarket (OTM) will not be followed up by the regulator. The CMA took over many of the functions of the Competition Commission and the Office of Fair Trading last year.Having investigated claims made by eMoov in an advert that its sales performance last year resulted in 99 per cent of the asking price being achieved for its clients compared to the national average of 96 per cent, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) concluded that that the statements were unsubstantiated.ASA said that sales data only covered the period of January to September 2014, while no comparable information relating to asking prices achieved by traditional estate agents in London was provided.The online estate agent also claimed that its customers had saved more than £11 million in fees by using its services because its business model depended on it selling a higher proportion of its inventory. But once again, this was panned by the ASA because it was based on the average fee its customers paid instead of actual fees, which was said to have been double that of the average fee on occasions.eMoov has been ordered to remove the advert in its current form by the CMA which is currently in the process of writing to all estate agent nationwide to warn them they are breaking the law if they agree restrictive adverts with newspapers.The watchdog is informing agents that they are at risk of breaking the law if they cut anti-competitive advertising deals with newspapers barring the display of all fees and discounts in the industry.Ann Pope of the CMA told the press, “The CMA is keen to work with businesses across the property and newspaper publishing industries to explain the implications of this case and ensure they understand what they need to do to comply with competition law and can recognise where they may be at risk of breaking it.”Companies that break competition law can receive a significant fine and company directors can be disqualified for up to 15 years.Meanwhile, eMoov’s official complaint with the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) accusing OTM of running an illegal cartel will not be pursued, it has been formally confirmed.eMoov Chief Executive Russell Quirk (left) filed the complaint against OTM last October on the grounds that the new portal was operating an illegal cartel being run by a handful of estate agency directors to form a protective entity, engaging in anti-competitive practices by preventing members from freely advertising on all other major portals and from excluding online estate agents from listing their properties on the website.online estate agent online agent OnTheMarket OTM CMA Competition and Markets Authority Emoov fees and asking prices June 11, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

US Military to Keep Hundreds of Soldiers in Haiti

first_imgBy Dialogo April 21, 2010 Army Lt. Gen. Ken Keen, who stepped down Sunday as the commander of Joint Task Force Haiti, told Pentagon reporters on April 19th that the U.S. military will keep about 500 soldiers in Haiti throughout the summer months as part of U.S. efforts to help the nation recover from the quake. “I expect us to — on or about 1 June — to be able to stand down the Joint Task Force,” Keen said. “We will be able to do that, because of the capability that’s being built up and has [been] built up by civilian organizations, … [and] as they build up that capacity and get into more of the recovery and reconstruction phase, the need for our military diminishes.” Currently some 2,200 troops and four aircraft are operating in the area, Keen said. Starting this month, the Louisiana National Guard will begin a five-month exercise – “New Horizons” – focused on helping to rebuild Haiti. This exercise will have over $2 million worth of projects focused on engagement activities such as training medical personnel, building schools and clinics, and helping Haiti establish an emergency operations center and planning process to prepare for possible future natural disasters, Keen said. Haiti has been the focus of an expansive international relief effort in the wake of what is considered one of the greatest humanitarian emergencies in the history of the Americas. A devastating Jan. 12 earthquake in Haiti killed an estimated 235,000 people and displaced more than a million inhabitants. At the height of the U.S. military effort there, some 22,000 forces were in or around Haiti, including 7,000 land-based troops, with the remainder operating aboard 58 aircraft and 15 nearby vessels. Keen, who also serves as the deputy commander of U.S. Southern Command, said the current mission in Haiti continues to be saving lives and mitigating suffering. “While over 230,000 people died, many, many were saved; thousands were saved, because of the tremendous response medically, not just on our military and other militaries,” Keen said, “but the international community and nongovernmental organizations.” Keen, who was succeeded as the top U.S. commander in Haiti on April 19th by Army Maj. Gen. Simeon G. Trombitas, reflected on the situation he witnessed in Haiti upon his departure. “As I left Haiti, I saw lots of hope as I walked around the streets, particularly when you look in the faces of the children, the smiles on their faces, the gratitude that they have, certainly from our military’s presence there, but the presence of the international community there,” he said. “But the proof of the ability to realize their hopes is going to be in how you’re able to apply all of these donor nations’ contributions,” he added, “and how they’ve been able to build a strategic plan, and then how the government is able to lead forward, because this is about Haitians leading Haitians.”last_img read more
