A division bench of Justices SS Shinde and Manish Pitale asked Areeb Majeed several pointed questions about why he left for Syria and his regrets, before reserving NIA’s appeal against bail granted to him by the special court in March, 2020. Majeed, studying to be a civil engineer left for Iraq as a 21-year-old along with three other young men on May 24, 2014 and was the only one to return to India six months later, on November 28, 2014. He was arrested on arrival by the state’s Anti – Terrorism Squad and subsequently handed over to the NIA. The NIA alleged that the four of them travelled to Baghdad to join the Islamic State (IS) and ‘commit terrorist acts in the name of jihad in Iraq and Syria’ during the war. The charge of being part of IS was later dropped against him. On Thursday, Majeed who has consistently claimed he was in fact brought back with the help of NIA and the Indian Consulate in Istanbul, argued that the prosecution has only been alleging he committed terror acts without proof. “Where and how, and what weapons were used? Was there damage to any property? They want the court to imagine that only because the accused travelled to Iraq, he must have committed some terrorist activities.” “Why did you go then?” Justice Pitale asked pointedly. “I was 21 years old, I was moved by the suffering. I went there and was helping people there,” came the response. “As a 21 – year – old, in the middle of your studies you went to help people there? Isn’t there enough of suffering around you. Imagine the suffering you have imposed on your family and your parents. You cannot imagine.” Justice Pitale observed. “I have also suffered in the past six- years (incarcerated). I have also been kept away from the people I returned for,” Majeed said meekly. After the court learned that Majeed, who was citing Supreme Court judgement from three days ago, came from an educated family (his father and two sisters are doctors) they asked him what would he do if he was released. “I will practice law,” he said. So far 49 witnesses have been examined in the trial and Majeed has been representing himself there, as well. “If you would have utilised your abilities at 21, it would have been a joy for your family and your country,” Justice Pitale observed. “That’s what I regret, it’s not that I don’t regret Mi Lord…I will not shy away from the wrong that I have done, but the allegations they have made against me are not true.” Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh argued that Majeed had returned with “ulterior motives.” He cited a video clip of wanted accused to demonstrate the “purpose” for their visit to Syria, which the bench viewed in their chambers. Singh argued that the trial could be expedited and the agency would take no liberties. “In such a case I cannot produce an eye witness from Iraq.” Debunking the documents produced against him Majeed said he has not joined the organisation. An NOC from the Islamic State cited by the NIA, was initially a cam-scanned copy. Majeed argued that the trial in the case wouldn’t be completed anytime soon, as, merely 49 witnesses have been examined so far with another 107 pending. “There are approximately 80 cases under UAPA, TADA and POTA (now repealed) pending in the same court, it cannot be believed that the other cases would be kept in abeyance for hearing only my case,” he said adding that the NIA has in fact opposed his application for an expeditious trial. He reiterated that it hasn’t been alleged he has committed even a “single offence against India. This is the first time NIA is alleging that I have come back to India for ulterior motives,” Majeed argued. He also cited an RTI response he had received from the Indian Consulate in Istanbul, which shows that an Emergency Certificate and a one-way air ticket was provided by the consulate meant for stranded Indian Nationals, under the Government of India Guidelines. Majeed narrated that NIA officers had met his father and helped the latter in bringing his son back. They, however, arrested him the moment he returned. “They don’t want to admit the role they have played in my return.” When Singh produced an alleged picture of Majeed holding a gun, Majeed said, “That country is a complete warzone, you will find weapons in the hands of ten – year – olds. Even if I took a photo with a weapon doesn’t mean I used it.” “What do you think about this trial? 4 years, 5 years.” Justice Pitale asked. “We will not seek adjournments or delay the proceeding.” Singh responded. The court then reserved the case for orders on February 23, after a hearing that lasted for over three hours. Majeed is charged under sections 125 of the IPC (waging a war against any asiatic power in alliance with the government of India) and sections 16 (punishment for terrorist act) and 18 (punishment for conspiracy) of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and faces life imprisonment if found guilty.

Family pushes for silent panic alarms in NY to honor Parkland victim

first_imgPornpak Khunatorn/iStock(ALBANY, N.Y.) — Family members are pushing for a new law requiring silent panic alarms in all New York state public schools in honor of one of the victims of the Parkland, Fla., mass shooting.The law, called Alyssa’s Law, in memory of Alyssa Alhadeff, is already in effect in New Jersey.Alhadeff, a 14-year-old freshman soccer player, was among the 17 people gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, 2018. Friday will mark two years since the massacre.“What we saw in Parkland was a fire alarm going off, and that caused chaos,” New York State Senator David Carlucci said at a news conference Wednesday. “We need to keep it orderly and silent and make sure the first responders can respond as quick as possible.” Today we called for support for #Alyssa’s Law, requiring silent panic alarms in schools. As a father of two young children, a school shooting is every parent’s worst nightmare. Let’s give students and teachers every tool possible to keep schools safe. @JamesSkoufis @EllenCJaffee pic.twitter.com/i0NAEPiYDS— Senator David Carlucci (@SenatorCarlucci) February 12, 2020“We need to provide our schools with the security funding that they need,” Carlucci said, “and we believe this is the first step forward in making sure our students, our teachers are protected and safe in the place where they learn.”Alyssa was sitting in English class when she was shot 10 times, Alyssa’s cousin, Jadyn Turner, a student in New York state, said at Wednesday’s news conference.The two cousins were just a few months apart in age and extremely close, she said.“Alyssa is more than just a name or another statistic of a school shooting. She’s a real person with a story and a life that was cut far too short,” Turner said.“Alyssa’s Law would put silent panic alarms in all public schools across the state so that first responders could get to schools faster in order to help in any non evacuation emergency,” she said. “By New York state taking the initiative to pass Alyssa’s Law one life could be saved. And that one life will change hundreds of people’s lives. Cousins can make memories, parents can laugh with their daughters instead of crying because of their deaths and siblings can fight instead of sitting in painful silence.”A relative also read a statement Wednesday on behalf of Alyssa’s mother, Lori Alhadeff.“As we approach the 2-year commemoration, my hurt burns with a pain and longing for Alyssa,” her statement said. “Alyssa was everything. A bright scholar, talented soccer player, a wonderful friend to those who knew her and the center of our family unit.”“I remember sending a text to Alyssa during the indent. I told her to run and hide, that help was on the way,” she said. “Unfortunately that help did not arrive. Had common sense school safety measures been in place that day, there’s a chance that Alyssa and some of the other 17 who were murdered would have survived.”Carlucci tweeted, “We need to push for Alyssa’s Law at the federal level, but if NY can lead the way with NJ, let’s get it done.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Sales jump 21% at Real Good Food Company

first_imgThe Real Good Food Company, parent of sugar supplier Napier Brown plus Renshaw and Haydens, has this morning revealed a 21% increase in total group sales to £109.8m.Unveiling its interim results for the six months to 30 June it said sales had increased from £90.7m the year before and that it had seen a “significant increase” in underlying profit to £2.7m, up from £0.6m.The group said it was pleased with its progress – particularly as it had been impacted by increased commodity costs in its first half – and it added that it had capitalised on a growth in home baking both here at home and in the US.Pieter Totté, chairman of The Real Good Food Company, said: “I am very pleased by the progress we have made during the first half, particularly as we have had to contend with increased commodity costs and challenges in the sourcing of sugar supplies. Despite this, we have achieved growth in all of our businesses, a substantial uplift in ebitda, while continuing to invest for further growth.“Our management teams have worked hard to ensure that increased commodity costs are passed on to customers and, while this will continue to be reflected in working capital, looking forward we are expecting net debt to reduce by the end of the year as we generate cash in our key trading period. Initial reaction to the Renshaw product launches has been extremely positive, and we are now preparing to launch our new range of speciality sugars under the Whitworths brand.“After a three-year period in which our trading performance has been overshadowed by the impact of EU sugar reforms, we are now more in control of our own destiny. We have the people and the products to make considerable further progress and I therefore look to the group’s future with growing confidence.”At Napier Brown, the company said it had worked hard  to secure new sources of sugar, but that the tight market supply situation within Europe had prompted an increase in its customer base. The company added: “Our supply base for 2012 has broadened, and our ability to manage these multiple sources will stand us in good stead. Meanwhile, much work has been done on developing our Whitworths brand in retail sugar, and this will start to bear fruit in 2012.”Renshaw continued to enjoy sales growth by capitalising on the revival of home baking markets both in the UK and abroad, added the group. The business is now about to enter a new phase of its growth plan with the launches of a series of Renshaw-branded products across the retail, sugarcraft and wholesale trade sectors and the company reported that it will be investing in support campaigns to drive sales of these new ranges.A new distribution centre has opened for Haydens and is now fully operational.>> Sweet success for Real Good Foodlast_img read more

Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell Has Passed Away

first_imgUPDATE: According to the Associated Press, medical examination has determined the cause of death as suicide by hanging.It is with heavy hearts that we share the news that Chris Cornell has passed away. The 52-year-old musician had just finished up a show at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan with his band Soundgarden before he unexpectedly passed. According to the Associated Press, Detroit police are investigating as a possible suicide. “His wife, Vicky, and family were shocked to learn of his sudden and unexpected passing, and they will be working closely with the medical examiner to determine the cause,” his publicist said in a statement, also asking for fans to respect their privacy.The the lead vocalist, songwriter and guitarist started his famed career with Soundgarden in 1984, defining his artistic range between metal, grunge, alternative rock, and psychedelic rock through 1997. In 1995, Soundgarden won two Grammy awards for “Best Metal Performance” for “Spoonman” and “Best Hard Rock Performance” for “Black Hole Sun.”Soundgarden reunited in 2010 through the present moment, but it was during the interim that Cornell established himself as a solo artist.While still in Soundgarden, Cornell recorded an album in 1991 under the moniker Temple of the Dog with Mike McCready, Eddie Vedder, and drummer Dave Krusen, along with Mother Love Bone’s Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard, ultimately forming Pearl Jam. The collaborative project came together as a tribute to the band members’ mutual friend and Cornell’s former roommate, Andrew Wood, who had died of a heroin overdose the year prior. Their debut album sold more than a million copies, thanks to the singles “Say Hello 2 Heaven” and “Hunger Strike.”In 2001, Rage Against the Machine disbanded when Zack de la Rocha left the group. Cornell was the first call, as advised by Rick Rubin. While in the midst of recording his second solo album, he accepted the offer and joined Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk to form Audioslave, writing hits like “Be Yourself” and “Out of Exile.”While his musical contributions seemingly never stopped between then and now, Chris Cornell’s most recent work was released in March of 2017 with the single “The Promise.” Watch the lyric video below:last_img read more

I think that we deserve better, okay, and that’s all I’m going to say about that. Politics aside, beliefs aside, I think that we deserve better. And now it’s up to us, that’s the whole way this thing was built, so, just pay attention. It’s our job. It’s by the people, by the people … it’s our fucking job.

New research shows larger health insurers increase rates higher on ACA-mandated state exchanges

first_img Read Full Story Does size matter when it comes to health insurance rates?In the latest research published August 11 in the first issue of Technology Science from Harvard University’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science, two Harvard student researchers, Eugene Wang and Grace Gee, find that the largest insurers in each state have raised premiums far more under Obamacare than smaller insurers, even though their costs have not risen more sharply than others.The largest insurers differ by state and include Blue Cross Blue Shield, Anthem, and Humana. On average, the big guys raised rates from 2014 to 2015 by nearly 24 percent, while the lesser known, smaller insurers raised rates less than 14 percent. That means the largest companies in each state under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) raised premiums an average of 75 percent higher compared to the smaller insurance companies.The study results raise questions as to whether the many mergers among insurers result in efficiencies and savings passed onto the consumers, or instead facilitate anti-competitive practices that require the public to pay more.last_img read more
