• BP tells court it waives spill liability cap

    first_imgTuesday 19 October 2010 7:39 pm BP tells court it waives spill liability cap Share whatsapp OIL giant BP yesterday told a court it was committed to waiving the legal cap on its liability from the Gulf oil spill, which could have limited the cost to the oil giant to $75m (£47.7bn) plus clean-up costs.“BP has chosen to waive the statutory limitation on liability under OPA,” BP said in a court filing. OPA is the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.BP has already paid out hundreds of millions of dollars to fishermen, retailers, charter boat captains and property owners who suffered from the spill, the largest in US history.The company has publicly committed to pay clean-up costs and all “legitimate claims”, rather than applying the cap.Under pressure from the Obama administration, the company has also established a $20bn compensation fund, though a slew of lawsuits have been brought against the company and its business partners.At a court hearing on the lawsuits on Friday, BP created confusion about its stance on the liability cap. It did not commit to waiving the cap at the hearing, as many plaintiffs’ attorneys had expected, and said in a statement on Friday that the cap “is not relevant”.“BP lawyers wouldn’t say on the record they would waive the cap,” said Steve Herman, a Louisiana attorney who is leading the hundreds of lawsuits against BP and its partners. “It certainly took everyone by surprise.”In the court filing, BP said it would waive the liability cap. BP also urged other defendants in the case, including rig owner Transocean Holdings, Anadarko Petroleum Corp and MOEX Offshore 2007, to waive the liability cap, according to the filing.BP also said it reserved the right to seek reimbursement from the other defendants and denied engaging in grossly negligent conduct. whatsapp KCS-content center_img Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

  • 2016 opens with new surge in mass resistance to Haiti election fraud

    first_imgOpen Letter to the U.N. — Fifteen prominent Haitian intellectuals, outraged by the “clear involvement of U.N. agencies in the fraud that marred the elections,” wrote an open letter to the U.N. Mission stating, “The whole world is discovering, under pressure from the street … the truth of the biggest electoral fraud operation … for the last 30 years in Haiti.” The 2015 election “cannot be decided by the street,” Kenneth Merten said recently, pointing out that the U.S. had committed $31 million to fund the election, plus $2.8 million to the National Police for election “security.” [Some 10,000 police and 2,500 U.N. troops were deployed on election duty.] It’s clear the U.S. Embassy does not want “the street” to decide anything. U.N. implicated — Deputy Antoine Rodon Bien-Aime and two other PHTK candidates made a startling revelation about UNOPS, a United Nations agency assigned to transport ballot boxes to the Tabulation Center. They charged that while in U.N. custody, the ballot boxes were switched en route with boxes of pre-filled-out ballots. Separately, a National Palace official was involved in a vehicle accident in which pre-filled-out ballots, marked for the presidential candidate of Martelly’s PHTK party, Jovenel Moise, spilled on the road. For sale: 1 seat in Parliament — Speaking on Radio Metropole (12/17), Gerald Jean, candidate for deputy (congressman) for Ferrier, admitted he had paid $15,000 in U.S. currency to CEP member Yolette Mengual to ensure his victory in a disputed election. He told the radio audience he was angry that despite having made his payment, he did not win the seat he’d paid for.Coup plotters and Occupiers — The self-described Core Group consists of the U.S., France and Canada, whose troops invaded Haiti in the 2004 coup; Brazil, which heads the U.N. military occupation of Haiti; the European Union, the Organization of American States and Spain. The Core Group accepted CEP’s fraudulent election results as “legitimate.”International Days in Solidarity with the Haitian PeopleInspired by the Haitians’ strong response to the election debacle, the Haiti Action Committee (HAC) issued a call for solidarity actions on Dec. 16 — the 25th anniversary of Haiti’s first free election in 1990. That was when Jean-Bertrand Aristide swept into the presidency with two-thirds of the vote on a platform of social and economic justice for the poor majority. After barely seven months in office, Aristide was overthrown in a U.S.-backed military coup in 1991.In 2015, after being excluded for 11 years since a second U.S.-sponsored coup in 2004, Aristide’s Lavalas party was finally able to run candidates again, headed by presidential standard-bearer Dr. Maryse Narcisse. People in poor neighborhoods all over Haiti welcomed the grassroots campaign of Dr. Narcisse with obvious joy. And  they marched on Dec. 16 against the brazen attempt to steal the election — in the cities and also in smaller places like Camp-Perrin and Port-Salut in the south.Meanwhile, Haiti’s overseas supporters were organizing. The call for Dec. 16 solidarity actions was widely promoted by the Haiti human rights community — activists, bloggers and organizations — on Facebook, Twitter and their websites. HAC’s Facebook post alone reached over 4,000 people. Thanks to this significant response, U.S. officials received a flood of emails, phone calls and tweets on Dec. 16 and beyond. The message: 1) Stop supporting fraudulent elections in Haiti, and 2) Stop support for police terror in Haiti. Friends of Haiti organized 25th anniversary actions or teach-ins in Los Angeles; Boston; Miami; Oakland, Calif.; Windsor, Ontario (Canada); Buenos Aires; Palo Alto, Calif.; New York (United Nations); London; and Washington, D.C.Use of systematic terrorFraud effectively prevented Haiti’s voters from electing candidates of their choice. Instead, the ruling party’s handpicked Jovenel Moise, a banana exporter and political neophyte, miraculously emerged as the top first-round vote-getter for president. But state violence also played a role in suppressing the vote.National police and paramilitaries fired automatic weapons into working-class areas like Arcahaie and Cite Soleil in the leadup to the Aug. 9 and Oct. 25 elections. Scores of people were killed, including two pregnant women and a 7-year-old boy. Some were “disappeared,” never to be heard from again. Later, hooded paramilitary gangs attacked marchers in Port-au-Prince with machetes, pipes, hammers and guns, killing young election protesters as police looked away. Now, people are noticing a rise in killings of local neighborhood organizers. During the Christmas holidays, the newly created special police unit, BOID, continued their killing spree in Lavalas strongholds of Port-au-Prince. But these death squad type actions — reminiscent of those carried out by the Duvalier dictatorship, or under the murderous Latortue regime after the 2004 coup — have not deterred the resistance.The 1804 Haitian RevolutionMany have commented that the Haitian people, in their vast majority, are very aware of their history — proud inheritors of the Revolution of 1791-1804, when Haiti defeated the army of Napoleon, ended plantation slavery and declared independence from France. The story of the Haitian Revolution has been passed on, in the oral tradition, from generation to generation. How does this connect with their battle in the streets today, to stop the ongoing “electoral coup d’etat” — to have their votes counted, their choices honored and their country’s sovereignty respected? “It’s on every lip,” said one Lavalas activist we spoke with. “People are saying that in rejecting this stolen election, we are lighting the fires of struggle, continuing the fight for equality and sovereignty that our ancestors fought for 200 years ago.”The author, a delegate to the San Francisco Labor Council, was a member of the Human Rights and Labor Fact Finding Delegation to Haiti in October, which reported on systematic voter suppression, violence, fraud and intimidation in the election process.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thiscenter_img Jan. 8 — The seemingly irresistible momentum of Haiti’s mass movement — combined with convincing evidence of widespread election fraud — have forced a surprise delay in the slow-motion theft of the 2015 national elections.Demonstrators march against the government of Haitian President Michel Martelly.Faced with December’s incredible outpouring of nonstop demonstrations throughout Haiti — and daily revelations of vote rigging and voter suppression in the Aug. 9 and Oct. 25 elections — the authorities were constrained to postpone the runoff that had been set for Dec. 27. But there’s no end to the maneuvering by Haiti’s ruling elite, outgoing President Martelly and their foreign backers, determined as they are to thwart the popular will in this election.U.S. ambassador OKs faked election resultsAmbassador Peter Mulrean said he sees “no evidence of massive electoral fraud.”  But his “see no evil” pose is contradicted by Martelly’s own new election commission. This body disclosed on Jan. 4 that they studied 1,771 vote tally sheets and found 92 percent had “serious irregularities” amounting to “massive fraud.” Then, on Jan. 6, thousands marched to denounce Mulrean and Martelly: “Don’t steal our votes!” Ominously, while the people marched, a plane carrying top State Department operatives Thomas Shannon and Kenneth Merten touched down in Haiti.The 2015 elections were plagued by endless incidents of ballot stuffing, vote buying, armed coercion and naked vote rigging, all the way from polling place to final tabulation. Fanmi Lavalas, long the most popular political party in Haiti, described the Oct. 25 election as “a preplanned fraudulent enterprise that stripped the elections of all credibility” in its petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. “These rigged elections of 2015 constitute … an attack on the national sovereignty … and a violation of the political rights of the Haitian people.” (tinyurl.com/jjmdqx2)Here are some key facts about the 2015 stolen election:78 out of 78 tally sheets tainted — Dr. Maryse Narcisse, Lavalas candidate for president, called a meeting at the Vote Tabulation Center as part of her party’s legal challenge. In attendance were election officials, observers, representatives of the ruling PHTK party and another contesting smaller party, Meksepa. They examined 78 randomly selected vote tally sheets (proces verbaux).  All present agreed that every one of the 78 tally sheets was fraudulent, without exception. The U.S.-backed election commission (CEP) then abruptly ended the legally mandated verification process — invalidating those 78 particular tally sheets, but failing to check the over 13,000 tally sheets still to be verified. With that, the CEP inexplicably accepted the fraudulent election “results” as legitimate. Experts at election rigging — Kenneth Merten was appointed U.S. special Haiti coordinator in August to deal with the election crisis. He was also on the scene as U.S. ambassador for the 2010-2011 elections. Under orders from then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. favorite Martelly was catapulted from 3rd place into the runoff and ultimately the presidency. CEP chair Pierre Opont admitted last July that the U.S. “rigged the 2010 election.” last_img read more

  • Oscar López en Filadelfia ‘El colonialismo es un crimen contra la humanidad’

    first_imgPor Christa RiversFiladelfiaOscar López Rivera“El colonialismo es un crimen contra la humanidad”. Estas palabras, del luchador por la independencia puertorriqueña Oscar López Rivera, suenan cada vez más verdaderas después de Irma y María. Estos huracanes atravesaron por el Caribe dejando atrás destrucción en estas islas que están siendo arrasadas por el colonialismo y el imperialismo.López Rivera habló el 18 de septiembre a una multitud de más de 200 personas en Taller Puertorriqueño en el norte de Filadelfia. Fue el invitado de honor de la Red Nacional Boricua de Derechos Humanos. Cuando el ex prisionero político entró en la sala, la muchedumbre irrumpió en aclamaciones de pie y comenzó a cantar, “Se siente, se siente, Oscar está presente!”Otro participante a la reunión público entregó un mensaje de prisioneros de la prisión estatal de Gratersford en Pensilvania que deseaban mostrar su aprecio a López Rivera. Le dijeron que su existencia como luchador por la independencia de Puerto Rico fomenta sus propias luchas por liberarse del sistema ­penitenciario.López Rivera pidió que todas/os los presos políticos sean libres. También habló de las/os jóvenes en el movimiento, diciendo que ellas/os son el futuro y que el trabajo que hacemos ahora será llevado a cabo por ellos. Dijo a las/os jóvenes en la multitud: “Atrévanse a luchar, atrévanse a ganar”.Por último, López Rivera habló sobre los efectos del colonialismo en Puerto Rico, que como una de las muchas colonias que aún existen en el siglo XXI, la isla está siendo estrangulada económicamente por Estados Unidos. La crisis de la deuda en la isla es el resultado directo de la explotación de este gobierno colonialista y la colaboración del gobierno en Puerto Rico.El pago de la deuda está siendo transferido al pueblo puertorriqueño, que ya ha visto 179 escuelas cerradas, las pensiones retiradas y los beneficios de salud cortados.Ahora, como la isla está luchando con cortes de energía y otros problemas causados por los huracanes, los EUA no ofrece ningún apoyo. Está claro que los Estados Unidos tienen una relación colonial con Puerto Rico, donde las empresas estadounidenses han robado recursos del pueblo puertorriqueño mientras los Estados Unidos han gobernado la isla y el pueblo trabajador de Puerto Rico ha sufrido.Es por eso que López Rivera llamó a la descolonización, soberanía e independencia de Puerto Rico como la única forma de poner fin a la abusiva relación colonial.Después de los desastres de huracán, a través de la isla ya través de la diáspora, las/os puertorriqueños están trabajando juntos para buscar a miembros de la familia en las partes inalcanzables de la isla. En la isla están trabajando juntas/os para despejar carreteras, mover escombros y árboles.El gobierno colonial de Puerto Rico está haciendo tan poco, así que la gente lo está haciendo por sí misma. Una vida sin este gobierno imperialista y colonialista que hace fracasar una isla y empuja la deuda sobre el pueblo, es posible.En su apoyo a López Rivera, la audiencia estaba apoyando la auto­determinación y la liberación de las/os ­puertorriqueños.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

In the present case, on receipt of the post-mortem report by Mumbai Police on 25.06.2020, the proceedings u/s 174 / 175Cr.P.C. came to a close” states Bihar.Following this, if the Mumbai Police were to undertake any investigation, it was required to register an FIR first and then proceed with investigation, the Submissions by Bihar Government stipulate. Averring that the the Mumbai Police has only been carrying out a “so-called” investigation which is not legal or valid as envisaged under CrPC, Bihar Government has stated that sans an FIR, there is no provision under which the Mumbai Police is examining the 56 persons & that, “any such exercise claimed by Mumbai Police without registration of FIR is ex-facie – entirely without jurisdiction”.On the aspect of jurisdiction of the Bihar Police, more specifically Rajeev Nagar P.S., Patna, where the Late Actor’s kin filed an FIR against Chakraborty, the Bihar Government states that precedents put forth that “the Station House Officer is obliged to register the FIR and carry out the investigation expeditiously” & that there exists no “embargo” on a police officer basis territorial jurisdiction to carry out investigation.Thus, the Bihar Government states that carrying out investigation is well within its jurisdiction and inaction by the Mumbai Police of non-registration of FIR is inexplicable and “contrary to law” and is on account of “political pressure””At the stage of investigation, it cannot be said that the SHO does not have territorial jurisdiction to investigate the case. Any contention that the IO did not have jurisdiction to do so on the face of it deserves to be rejected. Section 156(2) contains an embargo that no proceeding of a police officer shall be challenged on the ground that he has no territorial power to investigate…. The action of the Bihar Police in registering the FIR on 25.07.2020 and undertaking the investigation is not only within its jurisdiction but the discharge of such an obligation by it, is also entirely valid and legal. Simultaneously, on the other hand, non-registration of an FIR by Mumbai Police is not only entirely inexplicable but is also contrary to law” – Bihar Govt.The written submissions also highlight that the 4 member SIT which had reached Mumbai on July 27 with advance intimation were not extended cooperation by the Maharashtra Government and were not given any documents including copies of inquest. Further to this, Vinay Tiwari, IPS who had “who had reached Mumbai on 02.08.2020, with advance intimation to Mumbai Police – was virtually kept detained in the name of “quarantine” [ when admittedly, the 4-member SIT of Bihar Police officers had not been quarantined when they had reached Mumbai on 27.07.2020 ] and was not allowed to discharge his duties for the conduct of investigation. The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Bihar had requested Mumbai authorities for removal of quarantine of Mr. Vinay Tiwari, IPS, however, the same had been unfortunately disregarded by them”.The prayer by Chakraborty to transfer the case has been rebutted by Bihar Govt. to state that section 406 of the CrPC provides for transfer of the case and not for transfer of the investigation.”In the light of the facts of the present case, the transfer petition filed by the Petitioner is not maintainable. In Ram Chander Singh Sagar (Dr). Vs. The State of Tamil Nadu &Anr – (1978) 2 SCC 35, this Hon’ble Court has held that there is no power in this Hon’ble Court to transfer case during investigation stage”The Supreme Court on Tuesday reserved its orders in the plea filed by Bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty.The Court had also asked all parties to submit a written note by Thursday, August 13.A Single Judge Bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy heard all parties involved, who had complied with the Court’s August 5 Order, directing them to file their responses within 3 days to Chakraborty’s plea to transfer the case.

  • Club makes teddy bear donation

    first_img Club makes teddy bear donation By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Messenger photo/Jaine TreadwellThe local chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa teachers’ sorority donated several bags of stuffed animals to the Troy Fire Department to be given to children involved in emergency situations including house fires and vehicle accidents. Brandy Cox, TFD fire marshal, said, even when children are not victims of the accidents, they become upset and fearful because of the surrounding situations. Handing a crying child a Teddy bear can have a calming effect, he said. Kaye Jinright, ADK member, said Teddy bears provide comfort and give a child something tangible to hold on toe during times of crisis. Cox said Teddy bears also help forge a bond between an officer and a child. “A Teddy bear also gets a child’s attention away from the stress of the incident,” he said.
