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," .

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 ...

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 ...

Australian archbishop guilty of concealing child abuse steps down 23.5.2018 General News
An Australian archbishop who became one of the world's highest-ranked church officials found guilty of covering up child sex abuse announced Wednesday he will stand down from his official duties. Adelaide Archbishop Philip Wilson, 67, was accused of concealing abuse in the 1970s by notorious paedophile priest Jim Fletcher in New South Wales state by failing to report the allegations. He denied the charges but was found guilty by a Newcastle court this week of concealing a serious indictable offence of another person. Wilson, who faces up to two years in jail, said Wednesday he was stepping aside from his church duties while he weighs up the magistrate's verdict. "I am still considering those reasons together with my legal advisors," he said in a statement. "While I do so, it is appropriate that, in the light of some of his Honour's findings, I stand aside from my duties as Archbishop." Wilson's legal team had made four attempts to have the case thrown out, arguing his diagnosis of ...
