Tillerson expresses concern about atrocities in Rakhine

first_imgUS secretary of state Rex Tillerson speaks to staff members at the US Mission to the UN on 26 October 2017, in Geneva, Switzerland. AFPUS secretary of state Rex Tillerson urged Myanmar’s army chief Thursday to help end the violence in Rakhine state that has forced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims to flee.In a phone call with Min Aung Hlaing, Tillerson expressed “concern about the continuing humanitarian crisis and reported atrocities in Rakhine”, according to a statement by State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert.“The Secretary urged Burma’s security forces to support the government in ending the violence in Rakhine state and allowing the safe return home of those displaced during this crisis, especially the large numbers of ethnic Rohingya,” she added, using Myanmar’s former name.More than 600,000 members of the minority Muslim group have fled across the border into Bangladesh in an intensifying crisis that began in late August.Militant attacks on Myanmar security forces in Rakhine sparked a major army crackdown on the group, who are labelled illegal Bengali immigrants by most Burmese.Tillerson, who paid a visit to Myanmar’s giant neighbor India earlier this week, urged the military in his phone call to facilitate humanitarian aid for those who have been displaced.He also told the army to “cooperate with the United Nations to ensure a thorough, independent investigation into all allegations of human rights abuses and violations and to ensure accountability,” said the statement.Washington announced on Monday it was pushing for targeted sanctions against officers from the Myanmar army involved in violence while withdrawing invitations to senior members of the security forces to visit the US, and ending travel waivers.The move came after Tillerson had said the US holds Myanmar’s military leadership “accountable” for the refugee crisis, drawing a distinction with Aung San Suu Kyi’s civilian government.Tillerson warned last week the world won’t stand and “be witness to the atrocities that have been reported,” adding that the military must be disciplined and “restrained.”Min Aung Hlaing has consistently defended his forces against accusations of having committed atrocities.“One-sided statements and accusations against Myanmar and security members over the terror attacks of extremist Bengalis in the west of Rakhine State are totally untrue,” he said in a post on his Facebook page Tuesday.Supporters say Rohingyas have been systematically deprived of basic rights over decades in majority Buddhist Myanmar.In the latest crackdown, Myanmar’s security forces have fired indiscriminately on unarmed civilians, including children, and committed widespread sexual violence, according to UN investigators.last_img read more

Holey Artisan trial begins two and a half years since incident

first_imgHoley Artisan. File PhotoToday marks three years since the militant attack on Holey Artisan Bakery on road 79, Gulshan in the capital city. On 1 July 2016, members of an IS-backed militant group stormed into the restaurant and killed 22 persons there, hacking and shooting them to death. The entire country was gripped in panic. The situation is under control now. Two and a half years after the incident, the charge sheet of the case was submitted and the trial has begun.So far 60 persons have given their testimony as witnesses during 27 working days of the special anti-terrorism tribunal. The witnesses appearing in court include police members who tackled the situation from the outset, the employees who had hid in the bathroom of Holey Artisan throughout the night, Sharmeen Parveen who had been held hostage and also those who had unwittingly rented their premises to the mutants who had posed as university students.It has been learnt that there had been an exchange of fire between the militants inside Holey Artisan Bakery and the police members outside at the beginning of the incident. Two members of the police, Banani police station’s officer in charge (OC) Salahuddin and senior assistant commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police Detective Branch (DB) Rabiul Karim, were killed.However, on 18 June this year, constable of the Armed Police Battalion, Md Badsha, told the court that in the early morning when the commandos began their operation, he militants opened fire at the law enforcers for the last time. It was not known at the time if any of the militants were injured before the operation began on 2 July morning. On 21 May this year, Bhatara police station sub inspector Faruk Hossain told the court that Nibras Islam was injured in police fire in the night. On 27 May, restaurant employee Didar Hossain told the court that they were almost suffocating to death in the bathroom. The militants pulled them out in the morning and made them stand up in front of the dead bodies strewn all over.Munna Dewan informed the court that Holey Artisan chef Saiful Chowkidar and his assistant Shawon were his colleagues, employees of the restaurant, not militants. After the end of the killing and the hostage situation, at a press briefing in the army headquarters it was said that one suspect had been arrested alive. It was suspected that this was actually Shawon who had been injured with a splinter and was undergoing treatment at hospital. Saiful Chowkidar’s dead body had been lying in front of the militants. Munna Dewan had injured his leg when jumping from the roof, but he still went to see Shawon at hospital.Discrepancies in the listFaruk Ahmad is the legal counsel in this case for Rakibul Islam Regan, Aslam Hossain alias Rashed alias Rash and Shariful Islam Khaled. He repeatedly wants to drive the point home that the deaths inside Holey Artisan were caused by police fire from outside. In court, he also pointed to at last three other discrepancies.The case was filed with Gulshan police station by the police station’s sub inspector Ripon Kumar Das. He was the first witness in the case too. Investigating officer Humayun Kabir pointed to mistakes in the evidence list presented in the charge sheet. The list included 5 9mm pistols, but there were actually 2 pistols of 7.62 calibre. There other was of 9 mm caliber and one of the pistol had no hammer. And of the 28 bullets, two had marks on the back. And the AK-22 bore rifle was listed as AK-22 machine gun. It was said that there were live bullets of the AK-22. The defendants’ lawyer said there can be no scope to change the list now.It was also said that the investigating officer took written testimony from the witnesses, but so far none of the witnesses have given their testimony in writing other than one or two. Other discrepancies were also pointed out.Head of the police’s Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime unit Munirul Islam told Prothom Alo, the Holey Artisan investigations were complex. One clue led to another. In this case, the main accused ere all killed. The charge sheet was drawn up based on the confessions of those who had been arrested and documents which they provided. He says that personally he was not happy with the charge sheet. It would have been better if the accused were alive.Police submitted the charge sheet in court on 23 July last year. There were 21 persons evidently involved in the incident, 5 who had been killed on the spot. Eight more were killed in operations carried out by the law enforcement later. And 75 clues were found at the spot of the incident. There are 211 witnesses in this case and 149 of them are eye witnesses. Speaking to Prothom Alo last night, law minister Anisul Huq said the trial of the Holey Artisan case has begun as soon as possible, in keeping with all legal regulations. The government has taken this case very seriously. Prime minister Sheikh Hasina has declared zero tolerance towards corruption and militancy. In that sense, this case is extremely important to the government.last_img read more

South Korean clinic aims to prevent web addiction

first_imgThough it may be hard to imagine for those old enough to remember a time without the Internet and sophisticated video games, there’s a new generation of kids and teenagers who have never known a life without these luxuries. We’re sure you know how easy it is to get sucked into the computer while you’re bouncing around from link to link via Twitter, Facebook, and from blog to blog. It’s no surprise that people are literally becoming addicted to the Internet, but one new camp in South Korea is aiming to help these “web addicts.”Online gaming is a huge deal in South Korea. Blizzard’s Starcraft and Starcraft II real time strategy games are such a hit there that South Korea even has TV channels that just show people playing the game live with commentary. For many of South Korean’s younger generations, the game is their entire lives, and it’s no surprise that parents, who grew up without any computers or video games, are concerned about their children.The new camp is aimed at prevention, rather than curing the addiction. The kids that attend the camp aren’t clinical addicts yet, but the doctors say they’re all starting to show signs of a soon-to-be uncontrollable habit. The camp provides counseling sessions and “old-fashioned family activities” like making tie-dye scarves, reading books, playing non-video games, and taking walks in nature. These are all things their parents did growing up without computers. Since Korea’s obsession with the Internet is so recent, many parents just don’t know how to help their children.Doctors say that there are two types of Internet addicts: the shy ones who like the anonymity of online games, and the ones who like the power and violence of the games. One patient shown in the video below literally plays games all night long without sleeping or even taking bathroom breaks. Doctors measured the patient’s brain waves as part of a new government-funded plan to treat clinically addicted patients, and found he had similar output to other kinds of addicts or those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).One child attending the camp said he gets angry when he’s on the Internet and his parents call for him to leave the computer. He said he doesn’t know why he gets angry “but it’s bad,” which is why he’s trying to fix it. Still, the kid said “it’s too hard.”via BBClast_img read more

LendingTree Releases Report on Closing Timelines

first_imgLendingTree Releases Report on Closing Timelines in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing, Technology Share “”LendingTree, LLC””:www.lendingtree.com/, is reaching out to originators and borrowers with an information release that focuses on consumer preparedness during the mortgage loan process. Citing borrowers’ frustration with the pace of loan originations, LendingTree put out a report cataloging the top five documents that those seeking and selling mortgages can use to help facilitate faster processing.[IMAGE]Results from a recent survey conducted by the online resource showed that 64 percent of lenders say that the timeline for closing a mortgage loan has increased, due to an influx of borrowers seeking to refinance their current mortgages at record-low rates. Additionally, the study revealed that refinancing processes average around 45 days to reach completion, while newly originated loans require slightly less time. According to LendingTree, originators who encourage prospective or refinancing borrowers to prepare a handful of critical documents prior to the initiation of a mortgage loan are likely to be able to expedite the closing timeline. LendingTree’s list of important paperwork includes copies of W-2 forms and/or federal tax returns covering two previous years, up-to-date pay stubs, updated statements for any outstanding loans and/or debt, bank and asset statements covering three previous months, and a current credit report. Weighing in on the company’s release, LendingTree’s founder and CEO, Doug Lebda, said, “”Obtaining a home loan can be an overwhelming process. Doing the groundwork before entering the loan process will allow for a smoother transaction with less frustration. Although lenders are flooded with volume, borrowers who come to the table prepared will increase lender efficiency and will allow for a shorter closing timeframe.””In a company statement, LendingTree went on to note that additional or more elaborate documentation may be warranted for certain loan types. Specifically, LendingTree pointed out that those seeking a purchase mortgage would also need to present copies of their agreement and real estate contract, and the company added that those pursuing refinancing should prepare copies of their current homeowner’s insurance policy, as well as their most recent mortgage statement.LendingTree is considered the country’s leading provider of web-based lender and personal finance resources. Through its online platform, LendingTree is committed to giving consumers a connection to multiple informational tools and lenders that can assist them in making sound financial decisions.center_img December 15, 2011 396 Views Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Company News Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2011-12-15 Abby Gregorylast_img read more

It’s cheap too; in these cash strapped times, you’ll be able to buy beer at just 45 pence a litre, 200 cigarettes for £4.50 and a three course dinner for two with wine and cognac for under £20.Kiev and the Kievo CavesCapital Kiev (Kyiv) offers travellers a taste of Soviet history, without the red tape (unlike Russia – you don’t need a visa to enter Ukraine). The stunning Kievo-Pecherskaya Caves Monastery, which has UNESCO World heritage status, homes a network of candle-lit catacombs where Ukrainian saints lie in glass coffins.Carpathian Mountains and the Crimean CoastOutdoor enthusiasts can take to the Carpathian Mountains in the west of the country, where hiking biking and camping are popular in summer, and the ski resorts of Bukovel, Slavakso, Drahobrat and Tysovets attract skiers and snowboarders come winter. Sun and sand seekers will enjoy the numerous beach spots and the sub-tropical climate found on the southern Crimean coast that sits on the Black Sea.Nuclear LegacyAnd rather than shy away from the world’s worst ever nuclear disaster, why not take a guided tour of Chernobyl? The ghostly exclusion zone where abandoned villages, rusting theme parks and empty tower blocks are slowly being reclaimed by nature is a completely unique and educational experience.Stay?The majority of hotels in Ukraine are old Soviet style, though many have now been refurbished to a high standard. If you really want to sample Ukrainian hospitality, opt for a room in a private home where you’ll be able to meet real locals, and see what a Ukrainian house is really like from the inside. It’s also a good way to save money. Look out for signs advertising ‘kvartiry’ (flats) or ‘komnati’ (rooms) which are commonplace at bus and train stations.Danger and DifficultyThere’s little danger or difficulty in visiting Ukraine, but like anywhere else, keep valuables out of sight, especially in crowded areas and at tourists spots.Getting There and AroundFly London to Kiev direct with BA or Ukraine International. Once there, the train and bus services are well used; the major cities have clean and efficient metro systems, and if you’re in a group, a long distance taxi is a realistic and affordable option.Find cheap flights to Kiev, UkraineRead more from the Hidden Countries seriesReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more

Delhi’s Pragati Maidan a truncated pyramid structure that the world associated with India’s engineering prowess has been demolished The structure was razed four days after the Delhi High Court dismissed a writ petition filed by architect Raj Rewal to preserve the building “For the past seven to eight days we have been clearing the internal wiring and cables within the Hall of Nations By Sunday it was demolished” said L C Goyal chairman-managing director India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) which owns the building On Monday morning the Hall of Nations (No 6) and the Hall of Industries (No 234 5) stood mangled its reinforced concrete cement (RCC) innards exposing the once-strong nodes that made the building stand tall Now all that is left is crushed glass shards and pink concrete rubble A joint press note by architect Raj Rewal structural engineer Mahendra Raj former convenor of INTACH Delhi Chapter AGK Menon and president Indian Institute of Architects Divya Kush said: “We consider the demolition of the Hall of Nations at Pragati Maidan an act of outrage The case was being considered in the Delhi High Court and the hearings were scheduled on April 26 2017 and May 1 2017 An independent body of the Indian Institute of Architects and different Associations’ of Engineers had requested the authorities to preserve these buildings for posterity for their unique achievements In fact as an answer to our letter to the Prime Minister the Ministry of Commerce indicated to us to find an amicable resolution with the Trade Fair Authority But obviously somebody in the ITPO had other motives” Goyal said “The layout plan of the Integrated Exhibition Convention Centre which involves the inevitable demolition of these structures has been approved by statutory bodies such as the Heritage Conservation Committee the Delhi Urban Arts Commission South Delhi Municipal Corporation and National Monuments Authority” Today the 108-foot high structure has been wiped

and Mathura Road closer “It is part of the larger plan under the 130-acre Pragati Maidan redevelopment project In fact it goes beyond Pragati Maidan itself Everything has been done in a fair and transparent manner — not just to decongest traffic but to also bring India in sync with global standards We changed the land use to also include hotels which will come up in 37 acres of the complex” he added Though discussions and plans on the redevelopment project began in 2007 it gathered steam in the last eight months when INTACH filed a plea in the High Court seeking protection for 62 buildings — including Hall of Nations and Nehru Pavilion in Pragati Maidan identifying them as modern heritage “It was an important iconic historic building The public doesn’t know of our modern architecture… The current trend to rewrite history is worrying The idea that we have to wipe out the past so that we can built the new can be seen in other areas too” Menon said “Engineer Mahendra Raj worked very hard to find ways to construct the Hall of Nations with our labourers They produced a fantastic structure which not only received international acclaim but also laid the foundation for RCC construction in India It was indigenous yet global in its appeal” Ahmedabad-based architect Rabindra Vasavada said As a salute to India’s 25 years of Independence the Hall of Nations opened its doors

that it is a “sclerotic hopeless and downbeat” country where “nothing works and worse nobody cares about it” provoked a floodtide of ripostes and aggrieved accusations of “French bashing” from across the channel Though he later apologised his comments had touched a raw nerve The French are battling a severe case of collective despondency about the future This famous French malaise has percolated through all layers of society dissipating any lingering illusions of grandeur The political landscape never looked bleaker Distant seem the days of leaders with vision and grand ambition like Charles de Gaulle and even Francois Mitterrand Instead France has to make do with uncharismatic President Francois Hollande (the most unpopular president in modern French history with a popularity rating that touched 13 per cent) who unsurprisingly has a reputation for perpetually having one eye on the opinion polls Hollande’s efforts to project himself as a statesman of international stature and as the US’s principal ally in the fight against terrorism in the Middle East are somewhat undermined by his inability to control his own fractious Socialist Party and rebellious members of government His image took a further beating because of former companion Valérie Trierweiler’s tell-all memoir which shows him in poor light The main opposition party the UMP in severe in-fighting mode appeared to be on the verge of a split when like a knight in shining armour Nicolas Sarkozy rode into the political breach The announcement of his return to politics brought temporary respite and the party appeared to be rallying around him But old ambitions die hard and bitter rivalries have resurfaced In the meantime Marine Le Pen’s radical far-right National Front has been making inexorable inroads into both left and right vote banks wresting two senate seats for the very first time in the latest elections In an unprecedented development opinion polls show that each party enjoys the support of approximately 30 per cent of the voters and suggest a repeat of the 2002 presidential election: a second-round runoff between the UMP and National Front candidates That the far-right is forging ahead is unsurprising given the economic doldrums France finds itself in Labelled by some as the new “sick man of Europe” France’s economy is certainly ailing The country’s rate of growth is close to zero (03 per cent) unemployment is over 10 per cent public debt is around 951 per cent of the GDP and the deficit is 43 per cent Disposable income has shrunk and the spectre of joblessness haunts the young while for the old the prospect of diminished pensions seems all too real Strikes seem the order of the day as one after the other various groups — air-traffic controllers notaries Air France pilots pharmacists — make desperate attempts to safeguard their benefits Hollande’s new measures to spur growth are met for the most part with the dismissive Gallic shrug and indifference indicative of his lack of credibility in the eyes of the population This economic quagmire has engendered social tensions In some dreary high-rise suburbs unemployment is as high as 40 per cent for the under-25s who feel marginalised and discriminated against because of their immigrant origins All it takes is a minor incident for the feeling of despair that prevails in these neighbourhoods to be ignited into violence In recent months the spark was provided by the Gaza conflict exploited by radical groups to fan violence and anti-Semitism France home to Europe’s largest populations of both Jews and Muslims has of-late witnessed the rise of both anti-Semitism and Islamophobia Now to add to its woes after France’s bombing of Islamic State strongholds in northern Iraq there is a heightened threat of terror attacks from French jihadists In its travel advisory for France the UK government has warned its citizens of the “high threat” from terrorism and the possibility of indiscriminate attacks The UK issued this new alert after IS leaders urged their followers to kill the “dirty and spiteful” French last month In this atmosphere of doom and gloom a book of nonfiction Le Suicide Franais (The French Suicide) by Eric Zemmour a rightwing political commentator is topping the bestseller list and selling at the rate of 5000 copies a day His essay examines the reasons for the decline of the country and is “a journey through the unhappy soul of France” That a voluminous pessimistic text of 500 pages which analyses the errors that France has made since the time of General de Gaulle is flying off

roped in for the Rajkot Marathon on Sunday morning Even as municipal schools have been asked to ensure that the students participate in the marathon parents according to principals were averse to send their children for the run at 5 am At a press conference on Friday Rajkot municipal commissioner Banchhanidhi Pani said 63594 people have registered for the maiden full marathon in the city He claimed that this figure was the second highest in Asia after the Hong Kong marathon The previous edition was a half-marathon and around 37000 people had participated in it Pani who is joint chairman of organising committee of the Rajkot Marathon 2017 said that 299 people have registered for the full marathon 2292 for the half-marathon and 4571 for the 10-km long Dream Run The bulk of registrations — 54739 — were done for the Rangeela Rajkot Run a non-competitive 5-km run Besides 569 senior citizens 1124 differently-abled have also sent their entries Municipal officials said that the organising committee approached the municipal school board around 15 days ago and sought data of around 30000 students studying in its 83 schools “Initially we submitted data of around 17000 students studying in Classes III to VIII Then we were asked to reduce the number Therefore we submitted data of 12500 students of the upper primary section” said Narendrasinh Thakur chairman of municipal school board said However the electronic data processing (EDP) department of the Rajkot Municipal Corporation informed the school board only Friday evening that 2123 of the 12500 students of the municipal schools had been registered as participants “The EDP officials told us that only 1735 students from primary schools and 397 students of six high schools run by the board have been registered as participants The rest have been rejected” said Narendran Ardesana in-charge administrative officer of the school board The municipal commissioner on the other hand said that it was the school board which had mooted the proposal to send students to the marathon “It was not compulsory Only those students who have orientation in sports or have inclination towards running have been registered Now their number stands at 2170 Initially they had suggested names of 12500 students Had we registered them all the number of total registrations could have gone past 72000 But we deleted names one by one and have accepted only 2170” said Pani All the students have been registered for the Rangeela Rajkot Run Thakur said that they were encouraging students to go out and participate in the marathon “so that they can learn something” Ardesana said that students were not required to pay the Rs 100 registration fee as the organising committee had assured to take care of it Pani said that RMC will pay the registration fee of 2170 students But principals of schools said parents have objected to sending their children for the run “We have forwarded details of 407 out of 640 students studying in our school They include students from Class III to Class VIII Many parents have protested saying it’s a Sunday and that they can’t send their children to school at 5 am But we have instructions to take students at least from Classes VI to VIII to Race Course for the marathon” said the principal of a municipal school Rajkot Marathon 2017 is being jointly organised by the RMC and Rajkot city police Commissioner of police

am Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav Related News The shenanigans of the UP government over the appointment of the Lokayukta (‘How Akhilesh Yadav tried to handpick Lokayukta until Supreme Court cracked down’ The Indian Express January 12) is merely the proverbial tip of the iceberg It is common experience that a large proportion of appointments are actually made by manipulating the process This is true for almost all appointments including constitutional and statutory ones Why does this happen One explanation as The Indian Express editorial (‘Nuts and bolts’ January 13) rightly points out is that “the devil is always in the details Insufficient clarity about the institutions systems and protocols that are expected to drive the change is bound to derail it” The “details” and the “insufficient clarity” in this case presumably refers to the process of appointment But assuming that the process of appointment can be specified in full and to the last detail is that likely to guarantee that only the most appropriate person will be appointed to each position Unlikely The reason for this seemingly pessimistic conclusion is found in the writing of Granville Austin In the introduction to his scholarly work Working of a Democratic Constitution Austin writes “constitutions however ‘living’ are inert They do not work they are worked” What Austin stopped short of saying is that all documents including constitutions and clearly laid down appointment procedures are worked by people and they will work only as well or as bad as the people who work them So while systems and protocols are definitely important what is equally important if not more is that there are appropriate people to “work” the protocols How do we ensure that The Indian Express editorial makes another very important observation: “A reasonable democratic process is built on the premise of multiple candidates for almost all posts” The critical expression in the statement for our purpose is “reasonable democratic process” The criticality of this expression lies in the fact that a lot if not most of our political leaders seem to be blissfully ignorant of what constitutes a “democratic process” Hardly any has risen through one They therefore only pay lip service to democracy They have neither any understanding of nor any belief in democracy The root cause of this state of affairs is the way our political parties function It does not require any insight to see that none of our political parties has any democratic element in its internal functioning This is not something hidden The Law Commission of India in its 170th report as far back as 1999 stated that “A political party which does not respect democratic principles in its internal working cannot be expected to respect those principles in the governance of the country It cannot be dictatorship internally and democratic in its functioning outside” The tragedy is that parties continue to be dictatorships internally and even outside to a significant extent as long as they can get away with it The Law Commission went on to say “With a view to introduce and ensure internal democracy in the functioning of political parties to make their working transparent and open and to ensure that the political parties become effective instruments of achieving the constitutional goals set out in the Preamble and… the Constitution… it is necessary to regulate by law [emphasis added] their formation and functioning” The question at present is: How will such a law be made All political parties have been stubbornly resisting any attempt at systematising their internal functioning Ever since the Law Commission’s 170th report all efforts at even proposing a law along the lines recommended have been successfully blocked by all parties working together Persuasion has had no effect whatsoever The only option though not very encouraging seems to be consistent public pressure But until that succeeds attempts at such devious appointments will continue to be made and many of them will succeed too The writer is former professor dean and director in-charge of IIM Ahmedabad Views are personal For all the latest Opinion News
