UN envoy urges probe into alleged rapes during expulsions from Angola to

“It is important not only to get an accurate picture of what has happened, but also to clarify who has perpetrated the suspected human rights violations, and that the perpetrators are brought to justice,” Margot Wallström, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sexual Violence in Conflict, said in a statement issued yesterday. The UN humanitarian arm said earlier this week that, according to unconfirmed but reliable reports, more than 150 Congolese arrived in the Tembo area of Bandundu province in western DRC, alleging to have been expelled by Angolan authorities. Local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) reported that they were told that two men had been killed and that 30 women were raped multiple times in the course of the expulsion, added the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).Ms. Wallström urged the Governments of both Angola and DRC to “do their utmost to protect their populations, particularly women and children.” Wallstrom 29 October 2010Following reports of alleged rapes of women deported from Angola to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a senior United Nations official has called on both countries to investigate the incidents and bring the perpetrators to justice. read more

Javon Belcher Is Not The Victim Hes A Murderer

The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views, policies or position of Atlanta Black Star or its employees Is anyone on the Kansas City Chiefs mad at Jovan Belcher, murderer? He killed a 22-year-old woman, leaving a three-month old motherless. He did this in a house with his mother in a nearby room. And yet his jersey still hangs in the team’s locker room as some sort of twisted memorial.Not cool.If he died as former Chief running back Joe Delaney did in 1983, drowning while trying to rescue three children in a lake, or as former K.C. linebacker Derrick Thomas did tragically from a massive blood clot resulting from a car accident in 2000 . . . then such a display would be appropriate.Delaney’s and Thomas’ names and numbers reside on the Arrowhead Stadium Ring of Honor – an appropriate place for fallen players who did not die from their own hand.Belcher killed himself – after killing his girlfriend. And for that, he should be shunned like poison ivy.It is a tragedy that Belcher, 25, took his own life after gunning down his girlfriend, but with the murder should come disassociation and anger, not sympathy.This is not a cold-hearted approach, but one born of empathy for Kasandra Perkins and her parent-less child; for her family that grieves the unnecessary death a loved one, including her cousin – the wife of Belcher teammate Jamaal Charles – who introduced her to the athlete that would take her life.And then there is his mother, Cheryl Shepherd, who was left to seek help for her dying “daughter-in-law.” You could hear her pain and fear in the 911 call recording. She’s making his funeral plans and left to raise his child, who will be a constant memory of the tragedy that will tug at her heart the rest of her life.After shooting his girlfriend, Belcher headed to the team’s practice facility to shoot himself in front of the general manager, head coach and his position coach. They are undergoing mandatory counseling for witnessing someone put a bullet through his own head. Think they will forget that moment anytime soon?More significantly, little Zoey will grow up and one day will be old enough to ask about her parents. How do you craft an answer that does not scar her for life?This is the carnage Belcher left behind. For that, he hardly should earn anyone’s sympathy – or a place in the Chiefs’ locker room.“I don’t know if it’s a shrine, or whatever you want to put it. It’s a tribute,” offensive tackle Eric Winston said. “He was a player on this team. We’re all struggling to reconcile the conflicting emotions we have.”No doubt, for the players, it is a difficult balance, but how did he earn a tribute? He killed a young woman.His teammates got dressed in suits and attended a memorial service for Belcher on Wednesday. They are hurt and confused, shocked. How could someone they thought they knew flip as he apparently did. Maybe it was brain injury that turned him, although any other known case of NFL players with such malfunctions have only hurt themselves. Maybe it was one false moment that he wished he had back the instant it occurred, although the multiple gun shots could suggest something different.Lots of maybes. . .Whatever the case, Belcher’s locker should be cleaned out and discarded like so much trash. He does not deserve the attention it brings or the sympathy it elicits.No one will know what drove a seemingly fine young man to such an awful tailspin. But he is not the victim here; he created the victims, and there are many.And for that, Belcher should be cast aside, at least figuratively. His mother has already said she will always love her son; that’s a mom for you. His friends certainly will have similar feelings.To onlookers, it is a bit frustrating and disheartening to see so much attention paid to a murderer. The attention and focus should go to the real victims in this horrible case – and to someone worthy, someone who can use the prayers and use the support.His daughter. read more

Michael Sams Father Not Happy With Sons Gay Revelation

Michael Sam Sr., the father of Missouri football star Michael Sam who revealed this week that he is gay, was so upset when his son told him of his sexuality that he said he could not finish his meal.“I couldn’t eat no more, so I went to Applebee’s to have drinks,” Sam Sr. told The New York Times. “I don’t want my grandkids raised in that kind of environment.”He said he received a text message from his son that read, “Dad, I’m gay” last Tuesday. And while many have publicly applauded Sam’s son for his courage, the player’s father was less than thrilled. He told the Times that he’s “old school” and that the idea of a homosexual player in the NFL bothers him, even when that person is his own son.“As a Black man, we have so many hurdles to cross. This is just one he has to cross,” Sam Sr. told The Times.He told the newspaper that late Hall of Famer Deacon Jones, the leader of the Rams’ Fearsome Foursome who is credited with terming the word “sack,” is “turning over in his grave.”He told the newspaper, however, that he loves his son and hopes he makes it into the NFL.Sam led the SEC with 11.5 sacks, and 19 tackles for a loss. Many NFL draft projections see him as a likely mid-round pick, with some saying Sam could go as high as the third round, with a possible position switch to outside linebacker. He is rated as the 12th-best outside pass-rusher in the draft by ESPN Scouts Inc.His upbringing in Hitchcock, Texas, was filled with adversity. As such, he told ESPN that his decision to come out seemed easy compared to the tragedies he has had to endure.“I endured so much in my past: seeing my older brother killed from a gunshot wound, not knowing that my oldest sister died when she was a baby and I never got the chance to meet her,” he said. “My second-oldest brother went missing in 1998, and me and my little sister were the last ones to see him … my other two brothers have been in and out of jail since eighth grade, currently both in jail.“Telling the world I’m gay is nothing compared to that.”On Sunday, the defensive end told ESPN that his parents, who are no longer together, took the news well, which contradicts the comments from his father to The Times.“I told my mom and dad last week, and they just pretty much said, ‘We knew and we love you and support you,’” he said. “I’m their baby boy. I’m the first to go to college. I’m the first to graduate college. Something like this is just another milestone.”The Times reported that when Sam returns to his hometown he usually stays with friends instead of his family.“I’m closer to my friends than I am to my family,” Sam told the newspaper. read more

Ibrahim Halawas trial delayed for 22nd time

first_img IBRAHIM HALAWA’S TRIAL has been delayed for the 22nd time in Egypt.Amnesty International has criticised the latest delay, noting that Halawa (21) has spent 1,348 days in prison and there is “grave concern” for his physical and mental wellbeing.An application for his release on medical grounds was lodged at the last hearing in the case. Amnesty said it is unclear if the court has considered the request for his release on humanitarian grounds.Colm O’Gorman, executive director of Amnesty International Ireland, said: “For the 22nd time in 44 months, Ibrahim Halawa’s trial has been postponed.“Amnesty has conducted a thorough, independent review of the prosecution evidence and concluded that he was arrested solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of assembly and expression.“Amnesty researchers in Cairo on the night of his arrest confirm that he was sheltering in the Al Fath mosque and could not have committed the violent acts he’s been charged with.”Halawa, who is an Irish citizen, was 17 years old when he was first detained during Muslim Brotherhood protests in Cairo in August 2013.He faces a mass trial alongside 493 other defendants, which Amnesty said cannot meet the standards required for a fair trial as defined under international human rights law.‘Utmost concern’Officials from the Department of Foreign Affairs were present at today’s hearing, where seven more witnesses were called and cross-examined. The court will sit again on 9 May.Minister Charlie Flanagan said: “My expectation now is that the trial will move towards a conclusion. It is important that there should be no further delays in the process.The government, my own Department of Foreign Affairs and our embassy in Cairo will continue to monitor all developments in relation to Ibrahim Halawa’s case and his health and welfare, which remain matters of the utmost concern.“We will continue to provide every possible consular assistance to Ibrahim Halawa and his family.

Total and regular pay fall by 05 in real terms

first_imgBoth total pay, which includes bonus payments, and regular pay, which excludes bonuses, fell by 0.5% in real terms for employees in Great Britain between April-June 2016 and April-June 2017, according to research by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).Its UK labour market: August 2017 report, also found that in nominal terms, which have not been adjusted for consumer price inflation, total pay increased by 2.1% between April-June 2016 and April-June 2017. This is higher than the growth rate of 1.9% recorded between March-May 2016 and March-May 2017.Regular pay, excluding bonuses, in nominal terms increased by 2.1% between April-June 2016 and April-June 2017, compared to 2% between March-May 2016 and March-May 2017.Average total pay, including bonus payments, for employees in Great Britain was £506 a week in nominal terms before tax and other deductions from pay in June 2017. This compares to £493 a week in June 2016. Average regular pay was £474 a week, compared to £465 a week in June 2016.In real terms, which have been adjusted for consumer price inflation, average total pay for employees in Great Britain was £490 a week in June 2017, before tax and other deductions from pay. Average regular pay in real terms, excluding bonuses and before tax and other deductions from pay, was £459 a week in June 2017.Average total pay for employees in Great Britain, in nominal terms, increased by 34.6% between January 2005 and June 2017, rising from £376 a week to £506 a week. Over the same time period, the Consumer Prices Index, including owner occupiers’ housing costs (CPIH), increased by 32.2%.Ben Brettell, senior economist at Hargreaves Lansdown, said: “Some positive news on the UK’s cost of living squeeze from the ONS today, with average earnings growth beating expectations by growing 2.1% year-on-year in the three months to June. When inflation is taken into account, however, real wages still fell by 0.5% in the three-month period.“A fundamental shift in the labour market has led this relationship to break down, meaning wages remain depressed despite low unemployment. The cause seems to be a lack of underlying inflationary pressure, combined with technological developments and global competition which has weakened the bargaining power of the worker. Throw continuing lacklustre productivity growth into the mix too, and the Bank of England’s prediction of 3% wage growth by next year could look optimistic.”Crowley Woodford, employment partner at Ashurst, added: “Given this record employment rate it is surprising, at first glance, that wage growth has not kept pace with inflation. However, employers are still lacking in confidence about the longer-term future and [employees] still feel insecure in their jobs. This dampens the pressure on employers to offer higher pay and employee representative bodies to demand it.”last_img read more

Putin To Expel 755 US Diplomatic Staff From Russia In Response To

first_imgRussian President Vladimir Putin has announced that Russia is expelling 755 U.S. diplomatic personnel in retaliation against new U.S. sanctions proposed against Moscow, according to wire reports.On Friday, Russia’s Foreign Ministry had signaled that the U.S. would need to downsize its diplomatic staff to 455, to exactly match the number of Russian diplomatic staff in the U.S. Now, Putin has announced the exact number of staff he’s ordered the U.S. embassy in Moscow to cut.Russia is also seizing two U.S. diplomatic properties, much like the U.S. shut down two Russian diplomatic compounds under the Obama Administration.In an interview on Russian TV, Putin said he is opposed to any additional retaliatory actions against the U.S., at least “as of today,” Reuters reports.The new sanctions against Russia were overwhelmingly approved by Congress earlier this week, with a veto-proof majority. President Trump was initially opposed to the sanctions, but the White House says he is preparing to sign them into law.As NPR’s Miles Parks reported on Tuesday, the sanctions are punishing Russia for meddling in the 2016 presidential election:“The legislation slaps Moscow with new financial restrictions on doing business with American entities while also restricting Trump’s ability to waive those penalties. Often, a president has a freer hand in dealing with foreign governments, but the bill deliberately takes away that discretion.“To waive sanctions on Russia, Trump would have to send Congress a report explaining and justifying his decision, and lawmakers would then get 30 days to decide whether to allow it.“The vote puts Trump in an awkward position. He raised eyebrows from his first days on the campaign trail by expressing a desire to improve the U.S.- Russia relationship. He and his staff have specifically expressed an openness to easing sanctions.” ‘I believe an easing of tensions, and improved relations with Russia from a position of strength only, is possible, absolutely possible,’ Trump said last year at a campaign speech in Washington.”Speaking in Estonia on Sunday, Vice President Pence criticized Russia’s “destabilizing activities.” But, he said, “if Russia will change its behavior, our relationship will change for the good.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

roomsXML on Si – If we can help we will

first_imgroomsXML on Si – “If we can help, we will”As reported in many media outlets, the demise of Si Holidays is having a negative impact on Individual agents, travelers and the perception of the travel industry as a whole.  A lot of hopes and dreams, including those of the people who created Si, are evaporating.roomsXML MD Mark Luckey says “We’ve been contacted by a lot of agents asking if we can help them out. If you booked with Si and have lost your reservation and are going to be financially hurt, be in touch, send through some proof and we will give 10% off our net rates for that item.“Its not a lot, but we will help if we can, even though we will be running those bookings at a loss. If we can help at all, let us know, whether you are an existing customer or not.”When asked why roomsXML would step in , Luckey stated “roomsXML’s customer is the travel agent.  In most cases, travellers will be looking to agents to help and then blame them if help can’t be found. We want agents, the people in the industry to survive and thrive, so if we can help, we will.”On the broader topic of travel companies going bust, Luckey has mixed feelings.  “It’s been a tough few years for a lot of business – look how many franchise groups are collapsing. Every week another historical retailer shuts up shop or has it shut for them.  From clothing retailers to donut’s to fresh food delivery.“Disruption is sweeping change through many industries. I am not going to buy into the TCF/ATAS debate. As far as ATAS goes, we were one of the first wholesalers to sign up and support.“To protect agents, every wholesaler in Australia with over $10m turnover should have to be externally and independently audited.  If a company has directors that have run other businesses into the ground leaving debts, agents should ask why.“Agents need consider all risks, from rates that change with currency fluctuations, the cost of poor service and support through to understanding incentives and points schemes.  There are a lot of smoke and mirrors , but due diligence should help agents find answers. Ask the questions and if the answers don’t stack up, look beyond saving a few bucks on their next booking and think longer term. “We have been externally audited by Standard and Poors and achieved a High credit worthiness rating.  We also have ISO accreditation.  For agents, this says we are an efficient business, we are transparent we are accountable, we can be trusted to deliver when you pay.For agents who would like support with Si bookings , contact roomsXML with details au.support@roomsxml.com roomsXML – More Suppliers, Hot Deals www.roomsxml.com learn more about roomsXML.com here Source = ETB Travel Newslast_img read more
