first_img A Tunis appeal court upheld a 27 May court decision requiring the Tunisian Internet Agency (ATI) to create a filtering and censorship system to block access to pornographic websites. ATI said it would refer the case to the country’s highest appeal court because it did not have the “financial and technical resources” to do this. Moneem Turki, who represents the group of lawyers behind the legal initiative to have the filtering introduced, said ATI would have to begin implementing the order at once because it would not be suspended pending the outcome of the second appeal.

A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice GS Kulkarni reserved its order on Singh’s plea, on Wednesday, along with three other petitions following arguments on the admission of the matter, the State’s preliminary objection on maintainability of the petition and prayers for interim reliefs. During the marathon hearing, which lasted over six hours, the bench expressed its dilemma over passing an order for an investigation in the absence of an FIR. “An FIR is the first step into setting the criminal law in motion,” CJ Datta observed. Justice Datta frowned at the practice of approaching the Courts seeking directions for independent probe, without even approaching the police to register an FIR. The bench observed that just writing letters to the CM (as Param Bir had done), wasn’t enough. “You (Param Bir Singh) are a police officer. If you find an offence has been committed you are duty-bound to file an FIR. Why did you not do it? You are failing in your duty if you don’t file an FIR when you know an offence has been committed. Simply writing letters to the CM won’t do.” The Advocate General raised a preliminary objection of maintainability of Singh’s PIL stating that the latter is “vitally interested” in both the prayers in the PIL. In his PIL, Singh has sought an “immediate, unbiased, uninfluenced impartial and fair investigation on the various corrupt malpractices of Anil Deshmukh before evidences are destroyed.” And further sought a direction to the state government that police officials are not transferred for any pecuniary benefits to any politicians or in contravention of the guidelines issued in Prakash Singh & others vs Union of India. Senior Advocate Vikram Nankani, appearing for Param Bir Singh insisted that the allegations have been levelled by a person who occupied the “highest police post” and it is something that needs to be looked into by an independent investigating agency. Nankani said he was only seeking an independent inquiry by the CBI if an investigation was not possible. The other pleas were filed by Vinod Dubey, advocates Jaishri Patil and Ghanshyam Upadhyay and CA Mohan Bhide. However, only Patil had approached the Malabar Hill Police for registration of an FIR. On an enquiry made by the court, it was revealed that the Malabar Hill Police had not even recorded Patil’s complaint in their station diary. The court also heard Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh for CBI, who did not object to taking over the probe. Param Bir Singh was represented by Senior Advocates Vikram Nankani, Birendra Saraf and Sharan Jagtiani along with advocate Subodh Desai, Sunny Punamia and Akshay Bafna.

Bright Akwetey puzzled by appalling Hearts of Oak

first_imgIt’s the 104th anniversary of the oldest club on the land. Usually, it should be greeted with much merriment, conviviality and joy.The glory days of 2000 where Hearts conquered Ghana and Africa with the dreaded 64 battalion still remains the pinnacle of the Phobians’ success.In the midst of this commemoration is a cloud of inability to make an impact both on and off the pitch.This has led to the former director of Hearts of Oak, Bright Akwetey ripping into the current administrators of the club for how low the club has sunk in the current years.”Hearts of Oak has fallen on bad times, deplorably so, lamentably so, it is antagonizing to see where Accra Hearts of oak is now,” he told Joy Sports exclusively.”The club that used to move us from our homes to go and sit at the Accra Sports stadium at 11.00am for a game at 4pm is not the Hearts now.” “Those there know what Hearts of Oak is, what constitutes Hearts of Oak, what makes the club gel, and they are calling it Hearts of Oak. There are too many wrong things being done.”When asked if the club was now regarded as a failure, Akwetey was adamant the club was heading towards that direction especially with, what he says are, corrupt figures in and around the club”We are on the verge of being described as such, but there is still hope. That’s why we wanted to build the stadium with the monies from the transfers.”“This happens when we have a situation where we cannot protect the monies, and the monies pass through people’s accounts in Europe before they come to the club.”“I don’t accept it, everything must be transparent. People don’t like it that way, so even wehn they went to buy land at Pobiman, what happened to it? “If the so called owners are calling it their club, who will come to their aid? I think there are issues to take up and settle before the club will go back to its former self.”Success on the pitch has also eluded the Phobians with league victory last being tasted six years ago.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

BC Hockey to discuss raising the age for legal bodychecking

first_imgWilf Liefke, president of BC Hockey said this is an apropo time to raise the issue, explaining, “Many local associations are holding their AGMs in the weeks leading up to the provincial AGM, so this is a good opportunity to discuss the issue and make informed decisions.”But not everyone’s taking a neutral position on the issue.”Increasingly medical research confirms that the adolescent brain is especially vulnerable to traumatic brain injury,” said Bill Barrable, CEO of the Rick Hansen Institute. “A growing body of research is also telling us that body checking in youth rep leagues is a major risk factor for spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury. It’s very important that minor hockey associations promote awareness among all parents, coaches and players with these facts.”Quick Facts:* The BC Hockey Annual General Meeting will be held June 7-9 in Sun Peaks near Kamloops.* Hockey Canada rules do not allow bodychecking below the age of 11. Each provincial or territorial association sets its own rules for bodychecking for players 11 and above.* Many health organizations, including the BC Provincial Health Office, Canadian Paediatric Society, Rick Hansen Institute, BC Injury Research and Prevention Unit, Sport Med BC, BC Health and Safety Council, and the Canadian Maternal and Child Health Network recommend that bodychecking should not be allowed in peewee (ages 11-12) level hockey. Bill Bennett’s Castlegar visit today coincided with a press release issued from his ministry regarding bodychecking in youth hockey. Bennett, B.C. Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, didn’t speak to the release, as he was here to acclaim BC Liberal candidate for the West Kootenay Riding Jim Postnikoff, but the issue is sure to garner some attention from sports fans in the region.“In light of research highlighting the frequency and severity of injuries as a result of bodychecking … Bennett today encouraged education and awareness about youth bodychecking for parents, coaches, and all involved in youth hockey,” the press release read.“In June, members will consider a resolution at the BC Hockey Annual General Meeting to raise the age of the introduction of bodychecking in youth rep hockey. BC Hockey is encouraging members to let their associations know if they support raising the age.”Bill Bennett didn’t take a stance on whether he supports the change.”I played defense in hockey. Both of my sons played, I coached and I managed hockey teams, but I don’t pretend to be any sort of an expert,” he said.“I just want parents and coaches to be aware of the medical information available today on the impact of bodychecking at a young age, so that they can make an informed decision.”last_img read more

Pitrodas comments on IAF air strike unfortunate blessing for Pakistans narrative Jaitley

first_imgNew Delhi: Union Minister Arun Jaitley Friday slammed Indian Overseas Congress chief Sam Pitroda for his comments on IAF’s air strike on a terror camp in Balakot following the Pulwama attack, terming his statement as “unfortunate” and a “blessing for Pakistan’s narrative”. “There is no country that has criticised the surgical strikes or the air strikes conducted by India except for one nation, Pakistan. The fact that senior Congress leaders are speaking the same language is unfortunate and also hurts the sentiments of the country. To say that the Pulwama attack was self-engineered is a blessing for Pakistan’s narrative,” he said. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Pitroda had reportedly said that post the Mumbai terror attacks, India could have responded with air strikes, but “according to me that’s not how you deal with world.” He had also said he wanted to “know more” about the Balakot air attack and number of terrorists killed in it. Saying that Pitroda’s statement was “erroneous”, Jaitley asserted that it was based on the assumption that Pakistan state actors and non-state actors were different. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday “Their (Pakistan’s) reaction to terror attacks has pointed out that non-state attackers are just an extended limb to the state actors of Pakistan,” Jaitley told reporters on the sidelines of a function where former cricketer Gautam Gambhir joined the BJP. He said, “The security doctrine of India has changed now. We attack at the point of origin of terror now. This is now an ideological battle between those who want to defend India using all possible measures or those who want to fight for India with their hands tied behind their back.” Days after the Pulwama terror attack that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF jawans, the Indian Air Force fighter jets bombed terror group JeM training camp near Balakot inside Pakistan on February 26.last_img read more

CM Kejriwal questions PM Modis patriotism

first_imgNEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s patriotism pointing out that the Centre has obstructed the works of Delhi government. “What kind of patriotic PM is he? He obstructed the works of Delhi government and ruined lives of Delhiites. He cannot be a patriot,” said CM Arvind Kejriwal. The Chief Minister said this from the Janak Puri rally for AAP’s West Delhi candidate Balbir Singh Jakhar. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder”In the last four years, I have worked relentlessly for the development of Delhi. PM Narendra Modi says his chest is of 56 inches. Through the work done by the AAP government, I have made sure all Delhiites have 59 inch – chests,” he further added. The Chief Minister on Sunday said that Andhra Pradesh CM and West Bengal CM also supported the issue of full statehood to Delhi, “We will approach all the political parties to support the demand of full statehood,” he said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsFrom healthcare, housing, electricity, education, the safety of women to stopping sealing, CM Kejriwal made a host of promises if Delhi becomes a full state, which will be possible, he claimed, if Delhi chooses AAP candidates from all seven Lok Sabha seats. Meanwhile, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia held a rally on Monday at South Delhi LS constituency in support of AAP candidate Raghav Chadha. “If someone who has studied from Modern and then LSE becomes an MP then they will think about the careers of your brothers, sisters and children. However, if someone who is an intimidating bully becomes your MP then the only question you will be asked is have you given the money, have you paid up? If Raghav Chadha becomes the MP then your kids will be asked how their studies are going and will be told when a job opportunity opens up for them. If Ramesh Biduri becomes the MP he will ask if the weekly payment for your shop has been paid up or not,” said the Deputy CM. He also said that This election is being fought by the BJP to make Modiji Prime Minister again, the Congress party has a similar intention, however, AAP’s dream and your dream is simply to give Delhi the status of full Statehood. Explaining the need for full statehood for Delhi he said: there are only 30,000 seats in Delhi and every year there are 1.5 lakh children who graduate from school. In this case how will over a lakh students get to study? Even those with 80 percent and 85 percent do not get admission. It doesn’t worry Modiji if the kids of Sangam Vihar who get 60 percent will get admission or not. However, I as your education minister worry and care. Once Delhi gets full statehood I will open enough colleges so that not even one kid is left out from higher education.last_img read more
