The regional prosecutor’s office conducted a criminal investigation into the rape that was closed on 16 April after an out-of-court settlement between the victim and perpetrator.Pavlodar had been abuzz with rumours about the rape since late February but the authorities refused to provide any information to the local media, which tried to establish the facts on their own.Golyshkin, who has done well-researched stories on corruption and criminal cases in the past, managed to contact the young victim and film her account of the assault. But he decided not publish the video, partly because he did not want cause her problems and partly because he wanted to get additional evidence.The authorities nonetheless knew he was investigating the case and, in mid-April, he was summoned for questioning by the KNB and learned that the governor had accused him of blackmail on the basis of the video, which reportedly implicated his son.Subjected to repeated interrogations sessions without being charged, Golyshkin surrendered all copies of the video to the authorities. According to his lawyer, he was finally arrested when he refused to make a false statement clearing the governor’s son of any blame.“Golyshkin has been in prison for the past month but no one has been charged for the rape he was investigating,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“The many inconsistencies and contradictions surrounding this case give the impression that trumped-up charges have been brought against Golyshkin and that he is just a scapegoat. We urge the authorities to free him at once and to transfer the case to a different jurisdiction.”Golyshkin’s lawyer, Dmitry Kuryachenko, was himself detained for four hours in early June for trying to give Golyshkin a letter from his mother.The rape victim and a girl-friend are currently being held by the KNB in what the authorities call “judicial protection.” But this is disputed by her family, who are being denied any contact with her. Internet access to most articles about the case is blocked within hours of their being posted online.Renowned for his professionalism, Golyshkin writes stories that are often critical of the local authorities for Versya, a local newspaper. He was physically attacked in April 2006 after reporting the abduction of a member of the financial police who had been investigating organized crime.Kazakhstan is ranked 160th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. All of the leading independent national newspapers were closed in 2012 and all attempts to create new ones have been quickly suppressed. A handful of independent regional newspapers struggle to survive.Sign the petition in support of Golyshkin launched by Kazakh NGO “Legal Media Centre” (in Russian) center_img June 13, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Investigative reporter held arbitrarily in northeastern city News Kazakh reporter accuses police of attacking her News Organisation January 15, 2021 Find out more News February 5, 2021 Find out more October 30, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

The 4th edition of the 5G Tariff Tracker covers pricing for 40 countries and over 91 operators across the globe. Detailed information such as price in local currency and Euros, inclusive allowances, speeds, Value-added, and how 5G pricing compares with 4G pricing is provided in an easy-to-use format. Additionally, there is an analysis provided in PowerPoint – 28 slides – comparing the new services launched and provide analysis across all offerings. The Research finds that different approaches have been taken: Charging a premium for 5G, with some waiving the charge for some months.Launching a completely new set of price plans.Other charge the same as for 4G, make 5G only available to the upper-priced plans.Make 5G available to the prepaid market, though very few operators.Download speeds are as high as up to 2 Gbps, with the most common average advertised download speed now being 1,000 Mbps.The majority of 5G plans are still based on data consumed rather than on download speed.The highest 5G price levels are to be found in the Middle East though also have the highest mobile data allowances.MVNOs and sub-brand start to offer 5G to their client base. 5G services are still at an emergent stage, with network coverage, the availability and the purchase cost of handsets acting as barriers to mass-market deployment. The deployment of 5G already has been surprisingly widespread when compared with the early stage of 4G LTE. In 2021, 5G is soon poised to enter the mainstream as more MNOs offer lower-cost entry-level packages and the availability of lower-cost 5G smartphones starts to improve later in 2020. These two trends have the potential to make 5G the transformative technology of the year.

It goes on to submit that the Applicant, being the former President and a Senior Member of the Supreme Court Bar Association, had undertaken numerous activities for the welfare of the Members of SCBA. He had also taken up the issue of decongesting the courts by regulating movement of Advocates, Clients and Media Persons. Referring to the present scenario regarding the possibility of the spread of COVID-19 due to overcrowding/mass gathering in the Court, the Application contends that “the persons who are most vulnerable to COVID-19 in the Supreme Court are the Advocates, Clients and Media Persons. The Hon’ble Judges in the Courts are having sufficient distance from everyone and hence the norm for social distancing is easily met”. In the light of the same, the Applicant submits that urgent steps need to be taken in order to deal with the present scenario as well as have a “beneficial impact” on the functioning of the Court in the long run. “As the Government cannot decide how judiciary has to function post lockdown hence this Hon’ble Court has to play a proactive role in deciding protocols during social distancing that can serve dual purpose for future of lessening overcrowding”. On that note, the Applicant has provided multiple suggestions for the consideration of the Court: “A. That the Supreme Court Rules should be amended urgently to provide for compulsory Video Conference hearing for certain type of matters and voluntary Video Conferencing hearing for other type of matters. The compulsory Video Conferencing hearing should be provided for hearing of Bail Matters, Transfer Petitions, Matrimonial Matters, Service Matters involving a single employee, Matters of Petitioners-in-person (other than PIL) and all other similar matters as well as Chamber matters and the matters before the Registrars. B. Voluntary Video Conferencing hearing of all other matters and the modalities for the same would be to provide in the listing performa a column for the Advocate on Record as to whether he should want his matter to be heard through Video Conferencing. The said matter may go for hearing through Video Conferencing mode at the ex parte stage, however, if there is a caveator or after notice, such Video Conferencing should only be permitted with the consent of the caveator in case of the first hearing and the consent of the respondents in the case of hearing after notice.” It has further been submitted that till the time the Supreme Court Rules are amended, the aforementioned suggestions can be implemented vide an administrative order. Additionally, in order to reduce person-to-person contact and rush, the following modalities have been suggested in the Application in order to implemented immediately: “a. The round annexe building in front of Court No. 12 should be vacated by the Registry completely and a major portion of it should be converted into cubicles with Computer terminals affixed having wired LAN connectivity to the chamber of Hon’ble Judges who would be sitting for video conferencing. This will enable the practicing lawyers of the Supreme Court to use the Video Conferencing hearing even while attending to other matters listed in other courts which are not permitted through the Video Conferencing mode. This will also permit the briefing/assisting lawyers and the client to be present at the time when the Video Conferencing hearing will be going on. The person to person contact in such hearing will be minimal and in the long run it will help in de-congesting the other Courts as a large number of lawyers would be using this facility for the matters nominated through the Video Conferencing mode. b. Some cubicles can be provided to the media persons who can witness hearing of matters rather than going to a particular court room to hear the proceedings. This will not only help in decongesting the courts but also ensure apt reporting of the court proceedings by the media persons. The Court proceedings should also be available to the accredited media persons only to watch and not to record the proceedings. c. The rest of the area in the said annexe building should be converted into a library for lawyers who can wait in the said area while their matters have to be called through the Video Conferencing mode. As of now only Library-2 is being used for such waiting purposes by lawyers having matters in various courts, being the most proximate area to the various court rooms. The Library to be created in the annexe building will act as a buffer to the Library-2 for the waiting lawyers as the annexe building also happens to be the next proximate area to most of the court rooms after Library-2. The providing of the said library is also necessary because the corridors being not air-conditioned, the lawyers use the court rooms for waiting for their matters when infact they can easily sit in one of the proximate libraries being the air conditioned area proximate to the Courts. d. During the tenure of the Applicant as President, SCBA, the then Hon’ble Chief Justice of India had assured the then Executive Committee that the SCBA will be given a proper place for the office of the President, Secretary and a committee room in the said annexe building. The same can also be provided alongside the new Library to be created in the said annexe building.” The Application requests for the measures to be implemented on the partial lifting of the lockdown, i.e. 15th May, and highlights the need for immediate upgradation of infrastructure and WiFi facility in the Supreme Court corridor so that the Advocates can appear through Video Conferencing. It is also suggested that the Court should follow the system of rising for at least 15 minutes after finishing half the matters listed on that date on a Miscellaneous Day so that lawyers appearing in the second half need not crowd the Court till the matters of the first half are being considered. “The Applicant strongly believes that all these measures listed above will also help in decongesting Courts which problem the Supreme Court has been facing in the last so many years causing severe inconvenience to the Senior Members in the Bar as well as the lady advocates practicing in the Court.” The Application concludes on the note that in order to ensure that justice delivery system is not hindered in the future due to any reasons whatsoever, there exists a need for the Court to take urgent steps in this regard. Singh had previously penned a letter to the Chief justice of India S.A. Bobde enumerating various suggestion to deal with the short-term and long-term problems which are being faced by the Supreme Court, with an emphasis on video conferencing provisions in the Supreme Court Rules and modalities to reduce person-to-person contact in the Court premises.

Practical stance

first_imgIn December 2007, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) concluded that mandatory restrictions on trans fats should not be imposed.Legislation to limit the level of trans fats in food has been introduced in New York and in Denmark, and the key question for the FSA in the UK was whether regulatory action was required. At its meeting on 13 December, the FSA’s board decided to recommend to UK health ministers that voluntary measures to reduce trans fats in food are resulting in such low consumer intakes, that mandatory restrictions are not necessary.The FSA’s practical approach to this issue is very welcome to the food industry. Instead of suggesting yet another piece of legis- lation, the FSA has made a practical recommendation, based on detailed scientific advice and liaison with the industry. It has established, first of all, that the level of trans fat consumption is lower in the UK than had been the case in North America and Denmark and, secondly, that all parts of the food industry are already in the midst of substantial and successful action to reduce the trans fat content of foods. If only there were more occasions when the answer on an issue such as this was “regulation is not necessary”!Apart from the extra burden that regulations always create for industry, there would have been a further complication in this particular case had the FSA recommended the introduction of new legislation. Such a move would have had an impact on free trade between the member states of the European Union, since manufacturers in other countries might have needed to reformulate in order to meet UK standards. The European Commission challenged the Danish regulation on exactly that basis but, after investigation, it was held to be justified and was allowed to stand.However, a similar regulation in the UK would have required separate assessment, because the health justification for inter- fering with free trade would only be established if the actual level of dietary consumption in the UK was a cause for medical concern and other methods of dealing with this, such as voluntary action, were failing. What is more, the effect of a second European country introducing regulations on this issue would have been to significantly increase the risk of country after country following suit, with each imposing different limits and methods of control. This would fragment the market and cause major problems for manufacturers.There are obvious parallels with the doubts that arose earlier this year on the safety of certain artifical food colours in food for children, following the publication of research by Southampton University. There was a widespread call in the UK for legislation, but the government was reluctant to legislate on the issue, because there was the risk of a challenge under European single market law. Instead, the matter was referred for consideration at EU level. nOwen Warnock is senior partner and food law expert at inter- national law firm Evershedslast_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Wraps Up First Avenue Run With Rare Double Encore

first_imgLoad remaining images Umphrey’s McGee saved the best for last, as the third and final night of the Minneapolis run yesterday, April 30th, showed UM at their superlative form. The second set is what dreams are made of, and the unplanned double encore was the best way possible to end the run.“Gents” into “1348” got the night started off. As metal as the song is, “1348” actually had a more psychedelic jam that was a harbinger of what the rest of the show would be, especially the second set. The first set continued with excellent musicianship, delivering fun renditions of “The Bottom Half,” “Hurt Bird Bath” and more.“JaJunk” opened the second set, which included a small jam where Ryan Stasik laid down a funky bass line that eventually lead to the ending, with Joel Cummins pounding the keys and the guitarists shredding. Brendan Bayliss even covered Jake Cinninger’s eyes, as the latter rocked his solo at the end of the song.The “Nemo” segment was phenomenal as it contained a “Sweetness,” as well as a rocking version of Led Zeppelin’s “Dancing Days.” Bayliss thanked the crowd, before launching into “Dump City.” At one point, this version got so psychedelic that it more resembled a Grateful Dead “Space” than a rock show. The band zoned out with a bunch of weird noises and sounds, with percussionist Andy Farag going wild on his kit during this free-for-all. They eventually brought it back to the ending of the song for what was a wild ride of a “Dump City.”Next up was a slower moment with “in The Kitchen,” filled with quality improv throughout. They finished the set with a monster version of Talking Heads’ “Making Flippy Floppy,” with Cummins leading some great synth licks and featuring Cinninger and Stasik with their own keyboard contributions.They encored with an unusually placed “2nd Self” which segued into “The Floor,” both of which were rocking. That was supposed to be the end of the night, as a bow and a wave were given from the members of Umphrey’s. The crowd applauded. The band members left the stage. The crowd applauded. The house lights started turning on. The crowd continued applauding, louder. At some point, the screaming and yelling turned into a full-fledged Umphrey’s chant that seemed to last forever. Finally, they turned all the lights off and the place went pitch black. It was deafening. Umphrey’s could no longer deny us, and returned to the stage for a rare double encore. The Minneapolis Umphreaks willed the band back on to the stage. Kudos.Umphrey’s delivered a “Triple Wide” that contained a “Cigarette Cables” middle section. It was truly worthy of the double encore. Thank you for a real good time, Umphrey’s McGee.Check out the All Things Umphrey’s setlist and a full gallery from Ojeda Photography below:Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at First Avenue, Minneapolis, MN – 4/30/16Set One: Gents > 1348, Andy’s Last Beer, The Bottom Half, Liquid > Thin Air, We’re Going to War > Hurt Bird BathSet Two: JaJunk, Nemo > Sweetness > Dancing Days > Nemo, Dump City, In the Kitchen, Making Flippy FloppyEncore: 2nd Self > The FloorEncore 2: The Triple Wide > Cigarette Cables > The Triple Widelast_img read more
