On this day 500 years ago, Martin Luther kickstarted the Reformation by posting his 95 theses on the door of All Saints’ Church – the Schlosskirche – in Wittenberg, Germany. Central to his argument was the theological principle that man can be reconciled to God – justification – through faith alone, rather than through good works, penance or the buying of indulgences.Read the entire article here.

Protest demands justice for Jaron Thomas

first_imgA demonstration was held in Columbus, Ohio, on Feb. 18 to demand answers from the Columbus Police Department about the death of Jaron Thomas, a 36-year-old Black man, the previous month. The event began with a musical performance by three young girls commemorating the Black lives lost in recent years to police violence.Friends, family and outraged members of the community then marched from Battelle Riverfront Park to the steps of the Columbus Police Department. The building itself, which is typically open 24 hours a day, was inexplicably closed and its doors locked at 2 p.m. — coinciding with the start time of the demonstration. Friends and family, including Thomas’ children, recounted memories and demanded answers for what happened on that night that led to his death.Thomas called 911 for help on Jan. 14 while suffering from a mental health episode. He had been instructed by mental health professionals to do so whenever he felt such an episode coming on, and he had done so several times in the past without incident.On the night of Jan. 14, no mental health experts or medical personnel were dispatched to Thomas’ residence. This time, twelve CPD officers were sent. What happened next is unclear, but Thomas suffered multiple serious injuries and brain damage that put him into a coma. On Jan. 23, the 36-year-old father of three died in the hospital.While the police and city government in Columbus have remained silent, the people of Columbus showed up to the Feb. 18 demonstration to speak out and demand accountability. Signs proclaiming “Black Lives Matter” and “What Happened to Jaron?” were carried, while slogans and chants for justice were shouted through the streets. The makeup of the demonstration was predominantly young and racially diverse. Activists from multiple organizations, including Workers World Party, were in attendance.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Young independent journalist faces up to 20 years in prison

first_imgNews April 19, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Young independent journalist faces up to 20 years in prison News More than six years in prison for Uzbek blogger who covered corruption to go further UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts News New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council News May 11, 2021 Find out more Organisation read in russian UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia February 11, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today condemned the arrest of Sabirjon Yakubov (picture), a 22-year-old journalist with the independent weekly Hurriyat (“Freedom”), on 11 April in Tashkent on charges of “infringing the constitutional order” and belonging to an “extremist” religious organization.”We deplore the arbitrary nature of this arrest of a young independent journalist who was just doing his job and who is being accused without any evidence of belonging to an extremist group,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It will be an outrage if he gets a long prison sentence just for reporting something that displeases the Uzbek authorities.”According to the law, he faces a possible sentence of between three and 15 years in prison but, as he was arrested in the company of other persons, the sentence could rise to as much as 20 years in prison, said Ruslan Sharipov, a former dissident journalist now living in exile in the United States.Charged under article 159 of the criminal code, Yakubov is currently being held in an interior ministry detention centre in Tashkent but should be transferred to Tashkent prison on 21 April at the latest.His colleagues say the real reason for his arrest was an article he wrote on 16 March about the implication of senior Ukrainian officials in the 2000 murder of journalist Georgy Gongadze and how this was a contributing factor in Ukraine’s “orange revolution” at the end of last year. The article also accused the United States of reining in its human rights monitoring in Uzbekistan after being able to install an air base in the south of the country in 2001 on President Islam Karimov’s invitation.Staff at Hurriyat voiced surprise at his arrest, describing the young graduate of Tashkent university’s journalism school as being especially moderate in his approach to Muslim philosophy, in which he has specialized.”It is astonishing that a journalist who has written dozens of articles about the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism should be accused of belonging to an extremist religious group,” one of his colleagues, Alimar Donanayev, told Reporters Without Borders. “If he does get a long prison sentence, all the journalists will rise up in protest against this arbitrary arrest and will demonstrate,” he added.Born in Margilan (in the Ferghana region), Yakubov has written for Hurriyat since 2001. When he was a student, his teachers recommended him to President Karimov for a scholarship.Article 159 of the criminal code is often used by the authorities as a way to silence dissent. Yakubov’s arrest recalls that of Hurriyat contributor Gayrat Mehliboyev, who was arrested in 2003 and was sentenced to seven years in prison for “violation of the constitutional order” and “participation in an extremist religious organization.”The www.centrasia.org website quoted a police source on 15 April as saying there is a list of journalists who are under government surveillance. The interior ministry issued an immediate denial.

Acceptance Of Gift Can Be Inferred By Implied Conduct Of Donee: Supreme Court

Abdul Nazeer and Surya Kant observed.In this case, the appellant challenged the proceedings initiated under Rajasthan Imposition of Ceiling on Agricultural Holdings Act, 1973, before the High Court. The single bench, allowing his writ petition, held that the case was beyond the purview of Section 6 of the Act because the land was transferred by way of gift before 26.09.1970. It was further held that the aforesaid transfer of land, by the appellant in favour of his son by virtue of a registered gift deed, being bona fide, was valid in the eyes of law. Setting aside this judgment by allowing the appeal, the Division Bench observed that a perusal of the gift deed does not show acceptance of gift by the donee, rather it seems that donee was even unaware of the gift. In appeal filed before the Apex Court, the issue raised was whether the registered gift deed executed by the appellant is valid in the eyes of law?Referring to Section 122 of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882, the bench made the following observations:”Section 122 of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 provides that for a gift to be valid, it must be gratuitous in nature and must be made voluntarily. The said giving away implies a complete dispossession of the ownership in the 9 property by the donor. Acceptance of a gift by the donee can be done anytime during the lifetime of the donor. .Section 123 provides that for a gift of immovable property to be valid, the transfer must be effectuated by means of a registered instrument bearing the signature of the donor and attested by at least two witnesses.”The court noted that Section 122 of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 neither defines acceptance, nor does it prescribe any particular mode for accepting the gift.  Taking note of the observations made in Asokan v. Lakshmikutty, (2007) 13 SCC 210, the court said:”The word acceptance is defined as “is the receipt of a thing offered by another with an intention to retain it, as acceptance of a gift.” (See Ramanatha P. Aiyar: The Law Lexicon, 2nd Edn., page 19). 26. The aforesaid fact can be ascertained from the surrounding circumstances such as taking into possession the property by the donee or by being in the possession of the gift deed itself. The only requirement stipulated here is that, the acceptance of the gift must be effectuated within the lifetime of the donor itself. 11 27. Hence, being an act of receiving willingly, acceptance can be inferred by the implied conduct of the donee. “Taking note of the materials placed on record including some statements made by appellant before Court of Additional District Magistrate, the bench observed:”The abovementioned circumstances clearly indicate that there was an acceptance of the gift by the donee during the lifetime of the donor. Not only the gift deed in itself contained recitals about transfer of possession, but also the mutation records and the statements of the both the donor and donee indicate that, there has been an acceptance of the gift by conduct. The respondents failed to bring on record any evidence to rebut the fact that the donee was in enjoyment of the property. 14 In light of the same, the learned Single Judge Bench took a plausible view that, it was a transfer between a father and a son and there was a valid acceptance of the gift when the donee­son started living separately. Lastly, it ought to be noted that apart from the point of acceptance by the donee as held above since the deed is registered, bears the signature of the donor and has been attested by two witnesses, the requirements under Section 123 of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 have been satisfied.”Answering other issues also in favour of the appellant, the bench allowed the appeal and restored the judgment of single bench of the High Court.CASE: DAULAT SINGH (D) THR.

On November 3 last year, a division bench comprising Justices Nitin Jamdar and Milind Jadhav directed the Ministry of Defence to take a decision on the representation made by the company for NOC to acquire the ship. On November 27, the Ministry rejected the request for NOC.The 65-year old aircraft carrier INS Viraat was inducted into the Indian Navy in 1987, after being acquired from UK, and decommissioned in 2017.Click here to read/download the orderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Tennessee’s largest county could return to Phase 1 due to spike in COVID-19 cases

first_imgfiladendron/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Tennessee’s largest county could go back to the first phase of its reopening plan due to a recent spike in novel coronavirus infections.Tami Sawyer, the commissioner of Shelby County, which includes the city of Memphis, said she plans on Monday to request to return to phase one after health officials reported the largest single-day increase of COVID-19 cases over the weekend.“The numbers we are seeing show we have moved too fast,” Sawyer said in a statement to Memphis ABC affiliate WATN-TV. “Back to business can’t be at the expense of people’s health.”Sawyer said she will be asking Shelby County Health Department director Alisa Haushalter and Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris about the feasibility of returning to phase one. The county is currently in phase two.“If feasible, I will request that we make that call,” she told WATN in her statement. “If we aren’t returning to Phase 1, what additional policy and protections will the county put in place immediately and how can the commission support the crisis we seem to be in the midst of as daily numbers are doubled and almost tripled. We have to act urgently and put PEOPLE, not businesses first.”On Saturday morning, the Shelby County Health Department recorded 385 new COVID-19 cases over the previous 24-hour period — the highest day-to-day jump since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.Shelby County has reported the most coronavirus cases and deaths of any area in the Volunteer State. Overall, Tennessee has confirmed more than 35,000 COVID-19 cases with at least 526 deaths in the state. At least 7,916 of those cases have been reported in Shelby County so far, including 163 deaths, according to the latest data from the Tennessee Department of Health.Tennessee began easing coronavirus-related lockdowns and restrictions back in April, and several areas have seen a climbing rate of infections since then. Last week, Haushalter announced that Shelby County was delaying a move to the third and final phase of its “Back to Business” reopening plan due to an “upward trend” in new infections and a “concerning” rise in hospitalizations.“We all have our part to play to reduce the impact of COVID- 19 on our community,” Haushalter said during a June 15 press briefing. “We had all hoped to move into Phase 3. Clearly, that is not prudent at the current time.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
