Congress grills Olympic authorities on sexual abuse issue 24.5.2018 General News
United States Congress leaders on Wednesday questioned the leaders of USA Gymnastics and US Olympic Committee for their organisations' role in failing to stop sexual abuse.According to CNN, US Representative Debbie Dingell of Michigan, the state where former gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused hundreds of women, reproached US Olympic Committee acting CEO Susanne Lyons over how long it took to launch a Safe Sport policy to address safety concerns of the athletes."Why should I take confidence from what you're saying today when you look at this timeline? You keep telling me 'We're working on it, we're setting up a study.' Is it going to take another five years? What are we doing to protect these young people right now so this never happens again?," CNN quoted Dingell as questioning the Olympic Committee."I appreciate your anger and concern and I share it, and I understand how frustrating it must seem and how incompetent it must seem that we didn't do something sooner," ...

Mourning Philip Roth fans bitter over long-standing Nobel snub 23.5.2018 General News
The death of America's prolific novelist Philip Roth aged 85 has led to his admirers scorning the Nobel Literature Prize that eluded his work, which often portrayed male sexuality and relations with women. "RIP Philip Roth who for 'American Pastoral' alone deserved the Nobel he was shamefully denied," Roger Cohen, a New York Times columnist, tweeted today. Known for mining the Jewish-American experience in his work throughout the latter half of the 20th century, Roth was often tipped for Nobel Literature Prize, but the Swedish Academy which selects the laureate, ignored him. Being snubbed for the Nobel every year had "become a joke" for the author, said his friend French writer Josyane Savigneau today. The author, who died Tuesday, was proposed several times for the Nobel award, but it's impossible to clarify why he didn't win as the academy's considerations are kept secret for 50 years. "It's a shame the Nobel judges couldn't get their act together to honour him before his passing," .

Alleged IS supporter accused of urging Prince George attack 23.5.2018 General News
An alleged supporter of the Islamic State group went on trial in London on Wednesday, accused of encouraging attacks on 4-year-old Prince George. Prosecutors say 32-year-old Husnain Rashid provided an "e-toolkit for terrorism" on an online channel he ran under the name the Lone Mujahid. Prosecutor Annabel Darlow told a jury that Rashid encouraged attacks on a range of targets, including "injecting poison into supermarket ice creams and targeting Prince George at his first school." Prosecutors say one post included a photo of the prince, his school's address, a silhouette of a jihadi fighter and the message "even the royal family will not be left alone." Rashid, a mosque teacher from Nelson in northwest England, is accused of encouraging "lone wolf" attacks and providing advice on using bombs, chemicals and knives. "He made numerous posts glorifying terrorist atrocities committed successfully against others and encouraging and inciting his readers to plan and commit more successful ...

HC rebukes JNU for not providing safe environ for women students 23.5.2018 General News
The Delhi High Court today rebuked the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) for not taking constructive steps to provide safe working environment for women who have levelled sexual harassment charges against a professor. "I thought you were taking constructive measures to provide a safe environment to them. You (JNU) said on the last date that you were setting up a fact-finding committee which will hear them. "I see a complete turn around as you are saying you do not know who the eight students are and do not call them (to be heard before the committee)," Justice Rajiv Shakdher said and asked the varsity "Do you have the power to sanitise the environment?" The observation by the court came after it perused a report of the fact-finding committee (FFC) set up by JNU to probe the alleged misconduct by the professor. The court also said the report contained no findings and the panel has not even called the eight complainants or Prof Atul Kumar Johri. It observed it had expected the ...

Woman whose acid attack on ex led to euthanasia jailed 23.5.2018 General News
A woman who poured sulphuric acid over her former partner's face, leading him to end his life by euthanasia, was jailed in Britain today for at least 12 years. Berlinah Wallace, 48, who grew up in South Africa, threw the corrosive liquid at 29-year-old Dutch engineer Mark van Dongen in Bristol, western England, in 2015 after he left her for another woman. "It was an act of pure evil," judge Nicola Davies said in sentencing her to a life term, with a minimum of 12 years to be served. "Your intention was to burn, disfigure and disable Mark van Dongen so that he would not be attractive to any other woman." The judge noted immediately before Wallace threw the acid she had said: "If I can't have you, no-one can". Van Dongen was left in a coma for four months and blinded in one eye after suffering extensive burns to his face and body. He was subsequently paralysed from the neck down and had to have his lower left leg amputated. He died by euthanasia at a hospital in Belgium in January ...

Ensure legal aid to every rape victim: HC to DSLSA 23.5.2018 General News
The Delhi High Court has acquitted two men of charges of gang-raping a 13-year-old girl, saying the prosecution has failed to to prove their culpability though the possibility of the assault cannot be completely ruled out. While passing the order, it directed the legal aid authority to ensure that every rape victim in the national capital gets a lawyer and counselling services from beginning till the end of the case. The court also reiterated that its 2009 guidelines should be followed in true spirit, including that the rape victim should be provided prompt medical assistance. A bench of Justices S Muralidhar and I S Mehta, while acquitting two men of charges of gang-raping the minor girl, said the possibility of the minor being subjected to sexual assault or rape cannot be entirely ruled out, but the prosecution has not been able to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the two men were responsible for it. The prosecution had alleged that three accused, including a juvenile, had ...
