Spanish Police Arrest Suspect for Alleged Sexual Assaults of Moroccan Farmers

Rabat – Authorities in Spain have captured a 47-year-old Spanish national for alleged sexual assault of Moroccan seasonal farmers in Huelva, in southwestern Spain.The suspect was arrested on Friday, May 25, according to Spanish news outlet El Espanol. The source reported that the alleged suspect was in charge of supervising seasonal farmers working in strawberry fields during working days. El Espanol added that the suspect was questioned by the police and was released on bail. The arrest operation followed an exclusive press report by El Espanol, featuring several alleged Moroccan victims of sexual assault.“They know that we are poor, that we have children, that many of us are divorced or widowed, they blackmail us by depriving us of work if we do not surrender to their sexual desires,” said one of the alleged victims.The German investigative journalism NGO Correctiv published an investigation on May 2 in collaboration with RTL Nachtjournal and Buzzfeed News on Moroccan women farmers in Spain and in Morocco’s Souss Massa region in the south.In the report, women claimed that they were harassed, insulted, and raped in the field.Recently, the Ministry of Employment reported that it has opened an investigation; a Moroccan-Spanish delegation also carried out a visit on May 10-11 in the province of Huelva to inquire about the conditions of women farmers on Spanish farms.Following the visit, the ministry issued a statement, refuting claims that Moroccan seasonal agricultural farmers working in Spain are being harassed.The Ministry also explained that the working conditions of Moroccan women workers is in conformity to the employment contract concluded between the two parties. The workers allegedly received work permits from Spanish authorities to pick strawberries between April and June. read more

With UN help Côte dIvoire takes further step towards rule of law

16 August 2011United Nations peacekeepers have helped Côte d’Ivoire repair and renovate the prison in Abidjan, the country’s biggest city, after it was emptied in recent post-electoral violence, part of a broader effort to re-establish the rule of law. “This is a very important advance at the level of the state of law and the restoration of institutions,” Françoise Simard, legal officer in the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), said at today’s re-opening ceremony. “We must congratulate Côte d’Ivoire for its determination to re-open the prison.” UNOCI took an active part in the renovations, helping to get the administration buildings up and running and providing computers and registers as the country recovers from the violence spawned by former president Laurent Gbagbo’s abortive effort to stay in power despite his UN-certified election defeat last November to opposition leader Alassane Ouattara. Mr. Gbagbo was finally arrested in April and Mr. Ouattara was installed in office, securing the election’s aim of reuniting the country, which was divided into a Government-held south and a rebel-controlled north following a civil war in 2002. Sixteen prisoners were reinstalled in the prison today. UNOCI, which with some 10,000 uniformed personnel on the ground, has been supporting stabilization and reunification efforts in Côte d’Ivoire over the past seven years. Cote read more

Hundreds of refugees return to assess home villages in DR of Congo

“Most of the returnees are women who leave their families in Burundi, crossing back into the DRC to assess the situation in their villages and to check on their property. They say they plan to report back to their families in Burundi before planning their return,” the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said.Some 300 people, including students who are scheduled to take final exams, have returned home since 1 July. Another 500 have said they are ready to return, but UNHCR has cautioned them that health facilities and schools in the area are badly damaged “and the military tends to harass and steal from the local population.”Businesspeople have been travelling regularly to and from Kamanyola, nonetheless, especially on market days, according to the agency.Meanwhile, the central Government in Kinshasa has reportedly asked the authorities in Uvira and Kamanyola to give away the jobs of government employees who do not return home soon, UNHCR said.Small numbers of Congolese have continued to flee tensions in the South Kivu region and have crossed into Burundi, saying they were afraid of being caught up in conflict between national troops and rebels. read more

Security Council members strongly condemn nuclear test by DPR Korea

The Security Council held consultations on the issue this morning, after which the President of the 15-member body for October, Japanese Ambassador Kenzo Oshima, told reporters that members strongly condemned the reported test and urged the DPRK to refrain from further testing and return to the so-called Six-Party Talks that have been seeking to resolve the issue of its nuclear programme. Mr. Oshima said an expert-level meeting was scheduled later today to discuss a draft resolution. On Friday the Council warned the DPRK of unspecified action if it went ahead with the test, which it said would represent a clear threat to international peace and security. In a statement issued by his spokesman, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said he was “deeply concerned” and also called for urgent resumption of the Talks between China, DPRK, Japan, Republic of Korea, Russia and the United States that have been going on sporadically in Beijing for several years. “This action violates international norms of disarmament and non-proliferation, as well as the current international moratorium on nuclear testing,” the statement said. “It aggravates regional tensions in and around the Korean Peninsula, and jeopardizes security both in the region and beyond.” Mr. Annan calls on all parties “to respond to this grave challenge in a constructive manner,” it added. “The Secretary-General views this test as yet another reason for the international community to renew its collective effort to bring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) into force and to make progress towards multilateral nuclear disarmament.” The head of the UN atomic watchdog agency also voiced serious concern. “The breaking of a de facto global moratorium on nuclear explosive testing that has been in place for nearly a decade and the addition of a new State with nuclear weapon capacity is a clear setback to international commitments to move towards nuclear disarmament,” International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Mohamed ElBaradei said. “This reported nuclear test threatens the nuclear non-proliferation regime and creates serious security challenges not only for the East Asian region but also for the international community,” he added. Dr. ElBaradei reiterated the urgent need, “more than any time before,” for establishing a legally binding universal ban on nuclear testing through the early entry into force of the CTBT. A resumption of dialogue between all concerned parties is “indispensable and urgent,” he said. read more

Nigeria charges Shell Eni with corruption in oil bloc sale

by Michelle Faul, The Associated Press Posted Mar 4, 2017 9:06 am MDT Last Updated Mar 4, 2017 at 10:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Nigeria charges Shell, Eni with corruption in oil bloc sale JOHANNESBURG – Nigeria has filed criminal charges of corruption against oil multinationals Royal Dutch Shell and Eni over the $1.1 billion sale of one of Africa’s richest oil blocks.Both companies have denied any wrongdoing.Charges filed at the High Court in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, allege the companies paid $801 million to former Oil Minister Dan Etete, former Justice Minister Mohammed Bello Adoke and businessman Aliyu Abubakar for the license to OPL 245. Nigeria’s government got only $210 million from the deal.“These charges show Nigeria’s intention to fight corruption by holding the powerful to account,” Simon Taylor of corruption watchdog Global Witness said in a statement Saturday. “The days when oil companies could use their influence to keep backroom deals with corrupt officials under wraps are over.”He said the alleged bribes amount to 80 per cent of Nigeria’s 2015 health budget.Nigerian High Court papers stamped Thursday and seen by The Associated Press name the accused as the Nigeria subsidiary of British-Dutch Shell and its ex-director Ralph Wetzels, Italy’s Eni, Eni’s Nigeria subsidiary Agip and directors Roberto Casula, Stefano Pujatti and Sebastiano Burrafato.Also charged is Malabu Oil, the company Etete set up secretly and awarded OPL 245 while he was oil minister.Etete, Adoke and Abubakar, all believed to be living in Europe, could not be reached for comment.The charges were laid by Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, which in January won a court order ceding control of the oil bloc to the government.The commission also has filed new money-laundering charges against Adoke, alleging he corruptly received an additional $2.2 million in 2013 as payment for brokering the deal.The oil companies have declared their innocence, saying the money was paid to Nigeria’s government. Shell and Eni paid $1.1 billion into a Nigerian escrow account at the London branch of JPMorgan Chase in 2011. Adoke, who was then the justice minister and attorney general, authorized its distribution.The court document alleged the oil companies and their executives “corruptly gave” the money and “thus committed an offence” under Nigeria’s Corrupt Practices Act.Global Witness said in a statement that “Shell and Eni have always denied that they knew the money would go to Malabu, but documents seen by Global Witness show that the companies constructed the deal knowing that the money would flow ultimately to Etete’s company.”Global Witness said the case highlights the need for regulations forcing extractive companies to make public the payments made to governments. President Donald Trump has been expected to overturn such a regulation in the United States.The scandal around OPL 245 has drawn investigators from the United States, Italy, France, Switzerland and the Netherlands.Italian prosecutors last month asked for Eni, Shell, Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi and 10 others to stand trial for alleged corruption. Eni said it had investigated the allegations and found “no evidence of corrupt conduct.”Shell has said that it “takes this matter seriously and is co-operating with the authorities.” read more

Toronto Wolfpack owner David Argyle fined for actions in racism scandal

Toronto Wolfpack majority owner David Argyle has taken another hit in the racism scandal that cost him his job as chairman and CEO of the transatlantic rugby league team.The Rugby Football League, the governing body of rugby league in the United Kingdom, fined Argyle 7,500 pounds (C$12,765) for “unacceptable language” and other rule breaches in a racist encounter after Toronto’s 52-10 Betfred Championship win over the visiting Swinton Lions on April 28.“The RFL takes a zero-tolerance approach to the use of any unacceptable language based on someone’s race,” it said in a statement.Swinton prop Jose Kenga said, after approaching a teammate speaking to Argyle on the field after the game, Argyle looked at him and said “Do they allow black people in Swinton?” and then laughed.Kenga said he told Argyle “you can’t say that in this day and age and he just laughed, brushed it off and handed over a drink token to me.”Kenga complained to the sport’s authorities and then went public June 6 with his racism allegation. Argyle issued an apology that day and stepped down as CEO and chairman a day later.“I leave with a heavy heart as I have disgraced rugby and my family which I love,” he wrote in an open letter to Wolfpack fans.The Toronto-based Australian mining and resources entrepreneur remains the club’s majority owner.The RFL said its investigation found Argyle had breached four of its operational rules involving improper conduct, behaviour standards, unacceptable language and code of conduct.“The sanction reflects this and the relevant mitigating factors relating to this matter. These include that Mr. Argyle admitted the charge, has apologized publicly to the Swinton player Jose Kenga, has made strong statements denouncing the language and has stepped down from his roles as chairman and CEO,” the RFL said in a statement Thursday.“The RFL is fully committed to ensuring that rugby league is an inclusive sport accessible and enjoyed by all. As such it will ring-fence a proportion of the imposed fine for the ‘Enjoy the Game Campaign,’ specifically regarding the inclusion of BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) individuals in rugby league. The RFL will work with Swinton Lions and/or Jose Kenga on how the funds can best be utilized for this.”The Wolfpack, who currently lead the second-tier Betfred Championship with a 15-1-0 record, host the Dewsbury Rams on Saturday. Dewsbury stands 10th at 4-10-1. BROWSE toronto wolfpack read more

London Bridge terror attack Man 30 arrested as police raid flat in

first_imgAccording to the mother of 22-year-old Zaghba, he became radicalised online, echoing concerns raised by Prime Minister Theresa May that the internet can be fertile ground for breeding extremism.”We have always been checking his friendships and verifying that he was not trusting the wrong people, but he had the internet and from there he got everything,” Valeria Khadija Collina told L’Espresso in Bologna.Zaghba was stopped at Bologna’s airport trying to fly to Turkey in March last year over concerns he was intending to travel on to Syria, according to reports. Zaghba, Pakistan-born British citizen Khuram Shazad Butt, 27, and Rachid Redouane, 30, who claimed to be Moroccan-Libyan, launched a murderous rampage around London Bridge and Borough Market on Saturday night.

A woman places flowers on a memorial for victims in London Bridge A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “Detectives investigating the London Bridge terror attack have carried out a search warrant at an address in east London in the early hours of Wednesday June 7.”Officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, supported by officers from the Territorial Support Group, entered the address in Ilford at around 1.30am.”A 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorist acts (contrary to section 5 Terrorism Act 2006) and has been taken into custody at a south London police station under the Terrorism Act 2000. The youngest of Saturday’s attackers is said to have told Italian authorities “I’m going to be a terrorist”, while officers reportedly found Islamic State-related material on his mobile phone when they intercepted him.Counter-terror agencies are already facing intense scrutiny after it was revealed Butt had been known to security services.In other developments:There were fears for missing French national Xavier Thomas, 45, who police said could have been thrown into the River Thames after being struck by the van.The Metropolitan Police said all of the 15 victims currently in critical care had been identified, as public appeals continued for several people who have not been located since the attack.Detectives arrested a 27-year-old man under the Terrorism Act at an address in Barking, east London, shortly after 8am on Tuesday, while search warrants were also executed at addresses in Barking and Ilford.A man in his 30s was arrested by Irish police in Wexford county, south of Dublin, and questioned over documentation connected to Redouane.The arrest took the total number held as part of the investigation to 15, with 12 released without charge.Claims emerged that Butt was reported to counter-terrorism authorities almost a year before the deadly attack after a “violent scuffle” with a member of an anti-extremism organisation.Borough High Street and the roads and area east of the high street reopened to the public, although Borough Market and a small surrounding area remain closed.

Samsung Galaxy SIII spec leaks includes 1080p display

first_imgSo far during the Mobile World Congress this week, HTC seems to be setting the pace for Android smartphone announcements. Four new handsets have been detailed, all carrying the new HTC One name. One phone we didn’t expect to hear about during MWC, mainly because Samsung said they wouldn’t be talking about it, is the Galaxy SIII. However, someone seems to have leaked the basic spec to BGR, and it looks very impressive (if true).At the heart of the SIII will be a 1.5GHz quad-core Exynos system on a chip, meaning it’s most likely the Exynos 4412, a 32nm ARMv7 chip that can run anywhere from 1.5GHz to 1.8GHz. The SII used a dual-core Exynos 4210 and Mali-400 GPU. For the SIII no specific GPU has been confirmed.A 1.5GHz quad-core chip offers up a lot of performance, but the SIII is going to need it as Samsung has apparently squeezed a 16:9, 1080p display into the unit. It’s no small screen either, measuring a pocket-bulging 4.8-inches.We also know it will ship in a ceramic casing, runs Android 4.0, supports 4G LTE, and includes two cameras: 2MP on the front and 8MP on the back. This is just a rumor for the moment, but if it turns out to be true then the Galaxy SIII certainly sets the standard for Android 4.0 phones this year. The only aspect of this leak that seems a bit strange is the 1080p display. Even HTC only managed to fit a 1280 x 720 display in their newly announced 4.7-inch HTC One X and XL.More at BGR, image by Admost Photo Lablast_img read more

Anki smartphonecontrolled robotic cars go on sale October 23

first_imgApple likes to have select developers show off their apps at the WWDC event each year, and a few months ago Tim Cook invited the folks from Anki to demo something a little different. Anki is making a line of small robotic cars that are controlled with an iOS app. The demo had a few hiccups, but the technology backing the Anki cars is impressive. After a few months of fine tuning, the Anki Drive kit will go on sale October 23 for $199.For that lofty price you get two cars (or characters as Anki calls them), a charger, and the oval-shaped Anki track, which rolls up when not in use. In addition to the included cars, two more designs will be available for $69 each. If the cars look familiar, that’s because they were designed by the same man who created the Batmobile from the 1996 movie. Each car is a self-contained robot that scans the track 500 times per second and is aware of the location of all the other cars. The user doesn’t directly control the car, but rather issues commands that the car’s AI then tries to carry out.All the interaction happens with the aid of an Anki app running on an iOS device, which connects to the car over Bluetooth 4.0 LE. Players can activate special abilities and use virtual weapons on each other to gain the upper hand. The cars will react to all these variables in real time. Virtual upgrades for the cars can also be purchased in the app that change how the AI behaves and what abilities it has during a race.Anki is working closely with Apple to launch the product, which will be sold in Apple Stores and online through Anki. The robo-cars will only be available in the US and Canada for now.last_img read more
