A reverence to the pursuit of justice

CHENNAI: One of the classic, most misguided, anti-lawyer jokes is a quote from William Shakespeares Henry VI, The first thing we do is, lets kill all the lawyers. But the context in which Dick the Butcher utters this phrase is key to understanding its true meaning. The character meant that in order for anything unconstitutional to succeed, you have to kill the lawyers, explains PS Raman, advocate general of Tamil Nadu while delivering the presiding address at the SGS Awards For Ethics In The Legal Profession at Narada Gana Sabha. The event organised by the juniors of late S Govind Swaminadhan, former advocate general of Tamil Nadu, was held on Sunday to honour Akil Kureshi, former Chief Justice of the High Courts of Tripura and Rajasthan, in the presence of chief guest, Rohinton Nariman, former judge, Supreme Court of India. Commemorating his guru, Sriram Panchu, senior advocate, said, S Govind Swaminadhan was appointed as the advocate general of Tamil Nadu in 1969 and continued to hold the office till 1976. The International Bar Association conferred upon him the Legend of the Law award. He passed away in 2003. He was a considerate lawyer, even finer human being. When he was around, there was no code of conduct. We just had to ask ourselves, what would he do? Delivering the welcome address, he continued, Mr Swaminadhan will totally approve of the recipient of this years award. It is an absolute honour to celebrate Akil Kureshi. He has become the byword for judicial integrity and independence for embodying the finest judicial values and upholding the constitution and the laws without fear. Accepting the award, Akil shared, I accept the award with all humility. It is a special moment for me and my family. It is special because it is in memory of a person with a great legal mind, sense of humour, and outstanding human qualities. The award is also special because it is for ethics. Honouring the recipient, Rohinton Nariman also delved deep into how the present judiciary system came into place. Akil urged that we need to make some introspection at judicial and personal levels. Highlighting the collegium system, he said, The most ardent supporter of the collegium system will not say its perfect. The most bitter critique doesnt present any viable alternative. My humble view is that three wise men and women, sometimes five, are not enough, to grapple all the aspects of the system that needs to be corrected. The suggestion would be to make a platform there to invite lawyers, social workers, people from civil society all of them selected by chief justices of High Courts. A team of 20 people can discuss all possibilities, positives and negatives, to have a holistic idea. Three people cannot simply foresee solutions for complex issues on a national level. Asserting that introspection is also needed on a personal level, he said, Judges need to have courage. The only ground on which a person can be corrupt is personal ambition. A judge without that has nothing to fear. At the most elementary level, judicial independence is not about executive interference. Nothing should matter to a judge other than his legal understanding.

Daily crimes amid lack of basic civic amenities worry Badarpur residents

NEW DELHI: Badarpur, a constituent of the South Delhi Lok Sabha seat, came to about in 2008 with the implementation of the recommendations of the 2002 Delimitation Commission. Divided into four municipal wards, Jaitpur, Mithapur, Badarpur and Molarband, the constituency includes Badarpur village, Molarband village, Gautum Puri, Bilaspur Camp, Mohan Baba Nagar, Hari Nagar, Saurabh Vihar, Jaitpur Extension, Tajpur village, DDA Flats Colony and Lakhpat Colony among others. The constituency has a sizable number of Gujjar electorates. In 2020, the BJP retained the seat with Ramvir Singh Bidhuri trumping over the AAP candidate Ram Singh Netaji on a narrow margin of 3,719 votes. Cut to 2023, amid the glitz and glamour of the G20 Summit, the Delhi Development Authority bulldozed around 150 shanties at a slum in Badarpur village. Hundreds of families, rendered homeless after the crackdown on illegally occupied land, were forced to take shelter under flyovers. Most of them are employed as daily-wager or domestic helps. Situated on the city border, Badarpur lacks basic civic amenities including water and sewerage, with open drains running amock, spilling onto roads. There is dearth of potable water supply and people have to depend upon the erratic arrivals of water tankers. A lot of complaints related to crime, snatching and theft are reported on a daily basis. A local resident, Alisha John, told us, Badarpur comes last in terms of safety on roads. There is hardly any policing around this area and the roads are lying in shambles. My husband was returning from his office at around 7 pm when he fell from the bike because of poor roads and at the same time a group of bikers taking advantage of his predicament, snatched away his engagement ring, his expensive watch and wallet. They even hit him with the helmet when he tried to defend himself. We lodged a complaint but nothing happened. We have to be cautious at all the time. In Badarpur, the political fight has never been between the parties but between the two candidates, Ram Singh Netaji and Rambir Singh Bidhuri, who have switched parties often, voters across the constituency believe.

Viveka case: Fighting for justice, not for property, says Sharmila

Kurnool :President of the state Congress party, YS Sharmila, criticised recent developments in the YS Viveka muder case and claimed that the fight for justice by us is not linked to any property dispute. Sharmila cited the uncertainty faced by Vivekas daughter Sunita and her children about their future amidst ongoing legal tussle. Regarding the issue of her debts as disclosed in the present election affidavit, Sharmila criticised the unequal property rights for girl children and cited the practice of depriving them of their rightful inheritance. She raised concern about the unfulfilled promises of the YSRC on the non-issuing of job notifications and flayed the state government for hiking charges for essential services like RTC and electricity. The PCC chief referred to the stark contrast between promises of transforming Kurnool into a smart city and the reality of inadequate access to clean water, as well as the dragging of projects such as the Gundrevula irrigation project. She said there was a lack of adequate infrastructure here to establish the judicial capital. She questioned the purpose behind organising events like Siddham and criticised the YSRC for its failure to deliver on its electoral promises.

''We should look at technology with caution and not give up on it,'' he added. Justice Prathiba M Singh of Delhi High Court, who delivered the keynote address, said laws need to change to cover the regulation of AI-related technologies, according to the release.

Brahmin Associaton Demand Justice for Priest Attacked in Kakinada

Kakinada: A video of an attack on a Brahmin priest while he was performing a wedding at Mulapeta village in U.Kothapalli mandal of Kakinada District has gone viral in social media. The incident has angered the Brahmin community, who have decided to launch an agitation against the incident. Though the incident occurred 10 days ago, it came to light on Sunday. When the priest was performing a wedding, some mischievous youth covered the priest's face with an empty carry bag. When the priest expressed his anger and went ahead with the ceremony, a few more youth threw turmeric and kumkum powder on him. After the incident, the priest kept mum. But today, some of the bridegrooms relatives posted the video on social media and it has gone viral. The Brahmin Association leaders across the state have condemned the incident and demanded that the government take action against the micreants.

Unprecedented wave of narco-violence stuns Argentina city, testing president's tough-on-crime agenda

Unprecedented wave of narco-violence stuns Argentina city, testing president's tough-on-crime agenda The order to kill came from inside a federal prison near Argentina's capital. Unwitting authorities patched a call from drug traffickers tied to one of the country's most notorious gangs to collaborators on the outside. Hiring a 15-year-old hit man, they sealed the fate of a young father they didn't even know. At a service station on March 9 in Rosario, the picturesque hometown of soccer star Lionel Messi, 25-year-old employee Bruno Bussanich was whistling to himself and checking the day's earnings just before he was shot three times from less than a foot away, surveillance footage shows. The assailant fled without taking a peso. It was the fourth gang-related fatal shooting in Rosario in almost as many days. Authorities called it an unprecedented rampage in Argentina, which had never witnessed the extremes of drug cartel violence afflicting some other Latin American countries. A handwritten letter was found near Bussanich's body, addressed to officials who want to curb the power drug kingpins wield from behind bars. We don't want to negotiate anything. We want our rights,'' it says. ''We will kill more innocent people. Shaken residents interviewed by The Associated Press across Rosario described a sense of dread taking hold. Every time I go to work, I say goodbye to my father as if it were the last time, said 21-year-old Celeste Nunez, who also works at a gas station. The string of killings offer an early test to the security agenda of populist President Javier Milei, who has tethered his political success to saving Argentina's tanking economy and eradicating narco-trafficking violence. Since taking office on December 10, the right-wing leader has promised to prosecute gang members as terrorists and change the law to allow the army into crime-ridden streets for the first time since Argentina's brutal military dictatorship ended in 1983. His law-and-order message has empowered the hardline governor of Santa Fe province, which includes Rosario, to clamp down on incarcerated criminal gangs that authorities say orchestrated 80 per cent of shootings last year. Under the orders of Governor Maximiliano Pullaro, police have ramped up prison raids, seized thousands of smuggled cellphones and restricted visits. We are facing a group of narco-terrorists desperate to maintain power and impunity, Milei said after Bussanich was killed, announcing the deployment of federal forces in Rosario. We will lock them up, isolate them, take back the streets. Milei won 56 per cent of the vote in Rosario, where residents praise his focus on a problem largely neglected by his predecessors. But some worry the government's combative approach traps them in the line of fire. Gangs started their deadly retaliations just hours after Pullaro's security minister shared photos showing Argentine prisoners crammed together on the floor, heads pressed against each other's bare backs a scene reminiscent of El Salvador President Nayib Bukele's harsh anti-gang crackdown. It's a war between the state and the drug traffickers, said Ezequiel, a 30-year-old employee at the gas station where Bussanich was killed. Ezequiel, who gave only his first name for fear of reprisals, said his mother has since begged him to quit. We're the ones paying the price. Even Milei's supporters have mixed feelings about the crackdown, including Germn Bussanich, the father of the slain gas station worker. They're putting on a show and we're facing the consequences,'' Bussanich told reporters. A leafy city 300 kilometres (180 miles) northwest of Buenos Aires, Rosario is where revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara was born, Messi first kicked a soccer ball and the Argentine flag was first raised in 1812. But it most recently won notoriety because its homicide numbers are five times the national average. Tucked into a bend in the Parana River, Rosario's port morphed into Argentina's drug trafficking hub as regional crackdowns pushed the narcotics trade south and criminals started squirreling away cocaine in shipping containers spirited down the river to markets abroad. Although Rosario never suffered the car bombs and police assassinations gripping Mexico, Colombia and most recently Ecuador, the splintering of street gangs has fuelled bloodshed. It's not close to the violence in Mexico because we still have the deterrence capacity of the government in Argentina, said Marcelo Bergman, a social scientist at the National University of Tres de Febrero in Argentina. But we need to keep an eye on Rosario because the major threats come not so much from big cartels but when these groups proliferate and diversify. Drug traffickers keep a tight grip over Rosario's poor neighbourhoods full of young men vulnerable to recruitment. One of them was Vctor Emanuel, a 17-year-old killed two years ago by rival gangsters in an area where street murals pay tribute to slain criminal leaders. No one was arrested. My neighbours know who's responsible, his mother, Gernima Bentez, told the AP, her eyes shiny with tears. I looked for help everywhere, I knocked on the doors of the judiciary, the government. No one answered. A fearful existence is all Bentez has ever known. But now, for the first time in Argentina, warring drug traffickers are banding together and terrorising parts of the city previously considered safe. Imprisoned gang leaders in Latin America have long run criminal enterprises remotely with the help of corrupt guards. But according to an indictment unveiled last week, incarcerated gang bosses in Argentina have been passing instructions on how to kill random civilians via family visits and video calls. Court documents say the bosses paid underage hit men up to $450 to target four of the recent victims in Argentina's third-largest city. The killing of Bussanich, two taxi drivers and a bus driver in less than a week in March, federal prosecutors say, shattered the peace of an entire society''. Street emptied. Schools closed. Bus drivers picketed. People were too terrified to leave their homes. This violence is on another level, 20-year-old Rodrigo Dominguez said from an intersection where a dangling banner demanded justice for another bus driver slain there weeks earlier. You can't go outside. Panic was still palpable in Rosario last week, as police swarmed the streets and normally bustling bars closed early for lack of customers. A diner managed by Messi's family, a draw for fans, reported quiet nights and less profit. Women in one neighbourhood said they carry 22-caliber pistols. Analia Manso, 37, said she was too scared to send her children to school. Pope Francis last month said he was praying for his countrymen in Rosario. Assaults and public threats continue. This month, a sign appeared on a highway overpass warning Argentine Security Minister Patricia Bullrich that gangs would extend their offensive to Buenos Aires if the government doesn't back down. Authorities have sought to reassure the public by sending hundreds of federal agents into Rosario. The AP spent a night with police last week as officers patrolled neighbourhoods logging suspicious activity and setting up checkpoints. Georgina Wilke, a 45-year-old Rosario officer in the explosives squad, said she welcomes federal intervention, including the military, to get crime under control. We've been hit very hard, Wilke said. Omar Pereira, the provincial secretary of public security, promised the efforts represent a shift from failed tactics of the past. There were always pacts, implicit or explicit, between the state and criminals, Pereira said, describing how authorities long looked the other way. What's the idea of this government? There is no pact.'' But experts are sceptical a tough-on-crime approach will stop drug traffickers from buying control over Argentina's police and prisons. Unless the government fixes its problems with corruption, the crackdown on prisons is unlikely to have any long-term effect, said Christopher Newton, an investigator at Colombia-based research organisation InSight Crime. For years, Rosario's 1.3 million residents have watched warily as presidents and their promises come and go while the violence endures. It's like a cancer that grows and grows, said Bentez from her home, its windows protected by wrought-iron bars. We, on the outside, live in prison, she said. Those inside have everything.

Young voters in Tamil Nadu list jobs, education & social justice as priority

CHENNAI: In electoral politics, young voters hold a distinct sway as they are considered to be the nations future. Aware of the demographics influence, political parties often attempt to project themselves as youth-centric in order to appeal to them. This Lok Sabha election, apart from conversing with young voters on polling day, TNIE recorded the responses of 120 youngsters aged between 18-25 (through controlled circulation of a questionnaire) to better understand the demographics priorities while exercising their franchise. While all the respondents were under 25 years old, 51.3% of them were first-time voters. The survey was taken ahead of the polls and over 80% of them expressed their intention to vote. A number of them said they will vote for the candidate contesting in their constituency, who includes issues such as job creation, social and economic justice on their priority list. Notably, a majority of young voters highlighted that they do not let religious sentiments influence their voting decisions, and instead go for a more issue-focused approach to politics. According to the survey results, 40% of the respondents said they prioritise candidates in their constituency, 32.8% said they will consider the candidates party affiliations and 26.9% of them said they would simply vote for the prime ministerial candidate. I feel that it is better to have governments that are at least in alliance with each other at the centre and state levels. However, it seems such a setting would be difficult given the current situation. So, I consider the merit of the candidates in our constituency and their past performances as well, said S Preethi, a first-time voter, at a polling booth in Sholinganallur on Friday. While young voters are said to be susceptible to numerous influences, including their social circles, TNIEs survey shows that mainstream media has the most impact on their decision-making process. About 48% respondents expressed that mainstream media, including television and newspapers, has played a major role in shaping their voting decisions. 31.9% pointed to social media platforms and 11.8% figured their parents and other family members to be major influences. Nearly three-fourths of the respondents stated job creation, combating corruption and national security to be significant factors that shape their voting decisions. A majority of 54.4% of respondents asserted that religious matters hold little importance when casting their votes, with 20.2% considering them to be somewhat important and 25.4% stating them to be a very significant factor. Survey respondents also took a progressive stance regarding social justice and the protection of rights of religious and other minorities, such as the LGBTQIA+ community; 64% of them asserted that such issues are of great importance. Moreover, a whopping 81.6% of all respondents stated that addressing economic inequality is also a crucial factor determining their vote. When TNIE spoke to voters on election day, a large number of them mentioned the importance of improving the quality of education. I followed a few campaigns recently that promised freebies, better quality of education, womens safety and social justice, among others. My pick from the lot will be education, as it is our primary weapon in tackling social inequalities. It is essential to upgrade our teaching methods and also the government school infrastructure, said Akansha Senthil (22) from Medavakkam, a BTech student who travelled from Bengaluru to south Chennai to cast their vote. Sneak peek The survey involved 120 participants aged between 18-25. 51.3% of them were first-time voters. It was carried out ahead of the election and over 80% of them expressed their intention to vote 64% of all respondents found matters of social justice and protection of rights of religious and other minorities to be of importance 81.6% of all respondents said that addressing economic inequality is also a crucial factor determining their vote

The infected blood scandal: victims of this cruel experiment deserve justice | Observer editorial

Fair redress is long overdue for the trauma inflicted on 30,000 people and their loved ones Children being subjected to lethal medical experiments sounds like the plot of a dystopian horror film. Yet that is exactly what happened in the UK in the 1970s and 80s. New documents seen last week by the BBC reveal the extent to which children with haemophilia and other blood clotting disorders were enrolled in clinical trials, often without their parents consent. Most of them were infected with HIV or hepatitis C as a result of being treated with blood products that doctors knew could kill them. At one boarding school for boys with haemophilia used by the doctors conducting these trials, Treloar College in Hampshire, 75 out of the 122 pupils who attended between 1974 and 1987 have died as a result of their HIV or hepatitis C infections. These children are just some of the victims of the infected blood scandal, the worst medical scandal in the history of the NHS. It is thought that around 30,000people were infected with HIV and/or hepatitisC, a virus that can cause liver cancer, through the course of their NHS treatment in the 1970s and80s. Some had blood disorders and were treated with clotting agents manufactured from pooled plasma from tens of thousands of donors, often bought from the US where the use of high-risk donors was known about and routine.

Pakistan journalist expresses concern over rise in street crimes in Karachi

Pakistan journalist expresses concern over rise in street crimes in Karachi Pakistani journalist Syed Zeeshan expressed concern on Saturday over the rising street crimes including killings, and noted that the situation in the city is getting worse day by day, urging that the police should restrategize to curb the situation. The incidents of mobile snatching and street crime are on a continuous rise but the killings of people during the dacoity incidents have also surged in the past few months. In the last three months, 40 to 50 people have lost their lives in such incidents in Karachi. This is alarming and it's important to control this situation. There is a need to change the strategy of the police to curb these incidents, the journalist said. Previously, there used to be incidents of mobile snatching but now dacoits are killing people. In one such case, a member of Karachi police was also killed. There is a serious need of community policing and improvement of police equipment. But, the residents of Karachi are not able to comprehend to whom they should reach out for help. More than 20 people have died in the cases of mobile snatching alone. Probably these incidents are a pre-planned act of crime, he added. On April 2, The Express Tribune reported that the port city of Pakistan, Karachi now faces a severe problem of increasing street crime. Recent incidents have resulted in the creation of a sense of lawlessness amongst the people. The incidents of street crimes in Karachi often get recorded on CCTV and go viral. The report also stated that this increase in street crime has now resulted in the loss of lives, claiming that 23 individuals have lost their lives in robbery-related incidents during January and February this year alone. Quoting the data of the Citizen Police Liaison Committee, an organisation that collects crime data in Karachi the same report stated that during January and February: a total of 106 fatalities occurred in the city, 11 cases of kidnapping for ransom were reported, a staggering 10,488 motorcycles and 441 cars were stolen, and approximately 4,000 incidents of mobile phone snatching were reported. Responding to the crisis at hand the Sindh administration has promised to recruit at least 12,000 new police personnel will be recruited for the port city's 108 police stations, which will double the strength of the city's police force, The Express Tribune stated quoting its sources. Furthermore, it must be noted that Karachi already has a police force of 48,000 personnel but only 12,000 officers are available for duty in the metropolis's police stations. The Express Tribune claimed to have reached out to Additional Inspector General Karachi, Khadim Hussain Rind to enquire about the details of the plan of recruitment of such heavy force but Rind remained unresponsive. However, police sources, under the condition of anonymity, informed The Express Tribune that the remaining personnel of the Karachi police have been deployed for protocol duties. The report further stated that Mere recruitment drives won't suffice; we need comprehensive improvements in the police system, emphasised Qazi Khizar, Vice Chairperson of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, Sindh. Khizar further asserted the importance of modernising police weaponry, enhancing training programmes, and fostering a culture of accountability within police stations. Echoing similar sentiments, Tauseef Ahmad, a former professor and senior columnist, stressed the importance of addressing underlying factors contributing to street crime. The report also claimed that, the administration has previously allocated funds to increase and modernize the security status of the port city, but implementation remains a work in progress, with a projected timeline of two years for completion, for the first phase alone.

We went from naive, hippyish protesters to hardcore anarchists: the criminal justice bill protests, 30 years on

Its three decades since the governments attempt to ban raves radicalised an oddball coalition of dance fans, squatters and new age travellers. What became of the protesters who tried to kill the bill? When Harry Harrison first saw the white paper for the criminal justice and public order bill at the end of 1993, he couldnt believe what he was reading. Harrison was the 27-year-old co-founder of Nottinghams DiY sound system, so-called house music anarchists, who were known for throwing joyful free parties in fields and forests, quarries and squats. Now those gatherings could be criminalised and, for the first time, the music he played was being legally codified as sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats. It was almost like a surrealist prank, he says now. I said: Is this real? It was a crazy mixture of the sinister and the absurd. The 179-page bill was a hotchpotch of measures, from updating obscenity law and lowering the age of consent for gay men to restricting the right to silence when arrested and enabling the collection of DNA samples. Andrew Puddephatt, then director of the civil rights group Liberty, calls it a Christmas tree bill. You bung a lot of different issues into one big bill as a way of securing parliamentary time. At the time, Puddephatt described it as the most wide-ranging attack on human rights in the UK in recent years. Continue reading...
