Earlier in the day, he had been brought before the 12th chamber of the capital’s revolutionary court in connection with a 2005 case against him after he used the media to criticise the behaviour of the prison authorities.On his return to Evin jail, the journalist realised that his books, articles and papers had been seized in his absence.

Baghi had been summoned to appear before courts five times in the past five months.His wife, Fatemeh Kamali Ahmad Sarahi, told Reporters Without Borders that she was very worried about his health. “His doctors have told me that these recurrent illnesses should be taken very seriously,” she said.

He has several previous convictions including theft, assault and burglary.Mr Justice Garrett Sheehan said he had taken into account the nature of the offence and the “courageous and hopeful note on which the woman concluded her victim impact report.”He noted that the man is now in a new relationship and is expecting a child with his partner who seems to be having an extremely positive influence on him.Mr Justice Sheehan said he had taken into account the man’s plea of guilty, his remorse and apology.He said his personal involvement with his daughter’s upbringing, prior to the offence, was commendable and added that being registered a sex offender is a vey real punishment which will impact on his life once he is out of prison.He suspended the final two years of the sentence but added that the man “still has a way to go to really understand the impact this offence has had on his first family”.A local detective garda told prosecuting counsel, Mr Paul Coffey SC, that the man and the victim lived together and had a child before they separated in 2009.They took turns to mind the child and on the day of the attack the woman was leaving it with her partner at his home. They both washed and played with the child before putting her to bed in her cot.The man then attacked his ex-partner and held her on the bed. He tried to rape her several times before succeeding. The baby was in the room at the time.During the rape, the victim was shouting to stop and he threatened to tie her to the bed. Afterwards he refused to return the child to her and threatened her with revenge if she went to gardai. She promised not to and he let her go.When the victim got home her mother noticed she was pale and asked what was wrong. The woman said she had been raped and gardai were called. He was arrested and denied having any sexual contact with the woman. DNA evidence was later found linking him to the rape.Defence counsel, Mr John Whelan SC, said his client “misread the situation” and had the impression the sex was consensual. He said he stopped once he realised the woman wasn‘t consenting.Mr Whelan called it a “once-off, spur of the moment incident” and said the man pleaded guilty to spare his partner the ordeal of trial.He said the man is of ‘limited intelligence’ and fell into drugs after dropping out of school © Highland Radio 2011 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

In June last year, the SC had stayed the demolition.In the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital moved a fresh application, seeking permission to use the 4th to 7th floors for treatment on the ground that the State of Tamil Nadu needs additional in-patient bed.A bench comprising Chief Justice S A Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and Hrishikesh Roy observed that the hospital cannot be permitted to use the floors. However, since the State Government has made the request, it can be permitted to use the floors,said the bench.”Even though the need for using available space for the purpose of locating in-patient beds is legitimate and necessary, we see no reason why the  said floors should be allowed to be used by the petitioner-Hospital. However, since the demand for additional space has been made by the State of Tamil Nadu, we consider it appropriate to permit the State of Tamil Nadu to use the said floors, i.e., 4th to 7th floors of the building for the purpose of dealing with the pandemic”, the bench observed.The bench clarified that such use will not create any rights in favour of the hospital.Click here to download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

2-year-old boy among 3 dead in Pennsylvania car explosion: Coroner

first_imgRich Rolen(ALLENTOWN, Pa.) — A 2-year-old boy is among the three dead after a mysterious car explosion this weekend in Allentown, Pennsylvania, authorities said, and one of the adults is suspected to have triggered it.Jonathan Schmoyer, 2, his father Jacob Schmoyer, 27, and Jacob Schmoyer’s friend David Hallman, 66, all of Allentown, were the three victims of the Saturday night blast, Lehigh County Coroner Scott Grim said at a news conference Monday.All three died from traumatic injuries caused by the explosion, Grim said.Lehigh County District Attorney Jim Martin said Sunday that the suspect was likely among those killed.Authorities are confident the adults were friends and are looking into why they met that night, Special Agent in Charge Don Robinson of The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said on Monday.“We can safely say this is an isolated incident. We have preliminary information on the circumstances,” Robinson said, though he would not elaborate further.“We’re not prepared to say the cause of the explosion yet,” he continued. “We know we are dealing with a material that exploded … that could be anything from an accident to” an explosive device.No arrests have been made, authorities said.“We are making a lot of progress in both the scene and interview portions of the investigation,” Robinson added. “We expect to be done probably by tomorrow.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Five-month delay for new Tupe regulations

first_imgEmployers face at least a five-month wait for the new Tupe regulations tocome into force. The legislation, which protects employee terms and conditions when they aretransferred from one organisation to another, was due to be implemented on 17July but will not now become law until December at the earliest. John McMullen, national head of employment law for law firm Pinsent CurtisBiddle, told Personnel Today the draft regulations, which will be subject to athree-month consultation period, are now unlikely to be produced untilSeptember. McMullen, who advises the CBI on Tupe, said the current UK regulations needto be changed because they are based on the Acquired Rights Directive of 1977,which was overwritten by a new EU directive on Tupe in 1998. “The EU directive was implemented in June 1998 but has no legal forcein individual counties until those countries produce their own regulations. “The directive itself is not very radical. The main question is whereTupe applies. It could be decided by EU case law that we already have or memberstates can go further than the directive requires, providing they are lookingafter employee rights.” McMullen said one of the issues holding up the new regulations was pensions.He explained, “At the moment pension rights are excluded from Tupe. Thedirective itself does not require member states to alter that but it does allowmember states to allow pension transfers if they want. “This is going to appear in the consultation document. As an issue ithas huge ramifications for small contractors. Robbie Gilbert, chief executive of the Employers’ Forum on Statute andPractice, said he hoped the new delay to the Tupe regulations meant more timewas being spent resolving difficult issues such as pensions. “I hope the extra time is being used to tackle these troublesome pointsbut I am afraid I have no confidence that this will be the case,” he said. By Ben Willmott Comments are closed.

Impact of climate change on Antarctic krill

first_imgAntarctic krill Euphausia superba (hereafter ‘krill’) occur in regions undergoing rapid environmental change, particularly loss of winter sea ice. During recent years, harvesting of krill has increased, possibly enhancing stress on krill and Antarctic ecosystems. Here we review the overall impact of climate change on krill and Antarctic ecosystems, discuss implications for an ecosystem-basedfisheries management approach and identify criticalknowledge gaps. Sea ice decline, ocean warming and other environmental stressors act in concert to modify the abundance, distribution and life cycle of krill. Although some of these changes can have positive effects on krill, their cumulative impact is most likely negative. Recruitment, driven largely by the winter survival of larval krill, is probably the population parameter most susceptible to climate change. Predicting changes to krill populations is urgent, because they will seriously impact Antarctic ecosystems. Such predictions, however, are complicated by an intense inter-annual variability in recruitment success and krill abundance. To improve the responsiveness of the ecosystem-based management approach adopted by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR),critical knowledge gaps need to be filled. In addition to a better understanding of the factors influencing recruitment, management will require a better understanding of the resilience and the genetic plasticity of krill life stages, and a quantitative understanding of under-ice and benthic habitat use. Currentprecautionary management measures of CCAMLR should be maintained until a better understanding of these processes has been achieved.last_img read more
