England vs France Semi Final preview

first_imgFriday Oct 12, 2007 England vs France Semi Final preview With both sides having reached the Semi Finals with narrow wins against Southern Hemisphere giants, England and France are both one step away from the World Cup final.For England, their supporters will be over the moon as based on previous performances they never would have expected it. England have come to the party though, and lets not forget that they are the current World Champions after all.France on the other hand have the expectations of a nation on their shoulders, which could have a great positive effect on the side, or the pressure to perform will be too much for them.Don’t count on seeing an expansive game if thats what you were hoping for. Both sides have excellent forward packs and will no doubt battle it out up front, with their respective quality kickers have pot shots at goal and exchanging penalties.Personally I think France have the edge, but if this world cup has shown us one thing, it’s that you should always expect the unexpected. Enjoy this compilation clip of previous England vs France encounters as we count down to the crunch game tomorrow evening in Paris.

CFDG finds Pre-Budget Report “disappointing”

first_imgCFDG finds Pre-Budget Report “disappointing” Howard Lake | 10 December 2003 | News The Charity Finance Directors’ Group (CFDG) has expressed disappointment at the Pre-Budget Report.Responding to the Chancellor’s annual analysis of the economy, CFDG said that the Chancellor had missed the opportunity to address major problems which impede the charitable sector, and in particular, irrecoverable VAT. The Chancellor’s announcement included good news for sports clubs, but little else for charities, added CFDG.

Mumia challenges court-cop collusion

first_imgOn April 24, protesters gathered outside of a state court in Philadelphia to demand Mumia Abu-Jamal’s freedom.In a breakthrough in the struggle to free Mumia Abu-Jamal, an appeal to overturn his 35-year-old wrongful conviction in the death of a Philadelphia police officer was brought before Judge Leon Tucker on April 24.  Tucker is a Common Pleas judge in the city.One week later came a second breakthrough. Tucker ordered the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office to produce, within 30 days, all documents relevant to former District Attorney Ronald Castille’s role as a top prosecutor during Mumia’s initial appeal process.Abu-Jamal’s attorneys, Judith Ritter and Christina Swarns of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, contend that Mumia was denied the right to due process, as protected by the U.S.Constitution, because Castille refused as a Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice to step down from hearing state appeals cases he was involved in at a lower level.The challenge to Castille is based on a 2016 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Williams v. Pennsylvania. SCOTUS found that the constitutional right to due process is violated when a judge presides over a case in which they had prior significant or personal involvement as a prosecutor. In addition to Abu-Jamal’s appeal based on this ruling, 17 other cases involving Castille were heard by Tucker; all were ruled in favor of the petitioners.Racist cops, courts and DAs, hand-in-handTucker’s decision in favor of Abu-Jamal is important as it undermines legal roadblocks that deny or limit the right of people to appeal their convictions. One such limit was Teague v. Lane, a 1989 U.S. Supreme Court ruling made during a climate of neoconservatism.In Teague, SCOTUS ruled that new constitutional rules of criminal procedure would not apply in cases where petitioners had exhausted their appeals process before the new rule was announced.One exception allowed in Teague v. Lane was if “the new rule was a watershed rule of criminal procedure.” This appears to be the case with the SCOTUS 2016 ruling in Williams v. Pennsylvania.In an April 24 hearing, Pennsylvania District Attorney Ronald Eisenberg argued against Mumia, but acknowledged due process denial might be relevant. His objection was that if the court ruled for Abu-Jamal, this might open a floodgate of appeals, overburdening his office and the courts.Unsaid was that Mumia’s appeal would also create a firestorm for prosecutors who have gone on to become judges.The tainted and widespread link among the courts, local district attorneys and the cops is observable in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, under increasing scrutiny for its history of racism, corruption and collusion with the Fraternal Order of Police. Castille’s election to the state’s Supreme Court was heavily backed and financed by the FOP.During the 1997 Philadelphia District Attorney election, news surfaced that Jack McMahon, a prosecutor running for that office, had trained fellow prosecutors to ignore a U.S. Supreme Court ban on using race to make jury selections. In a 60-minute videotape, McMahon instructed prosecutors: “Blacks from low-income areas are less likely to convict … [Y]ou don’t want these people on your jury.” McMahon was in the District Attorney’s Office in the 1980s when Abu-Jamal’s case was being prosecuted.The overturning of Mumia Abu-Jamal’s death penalty conviction in 2011 was due in large part to continued international support and mass demonstrations, organized over many years. Recently, supporters, working with Abu-Jamal’s attorneys, won a ruling that the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections must provide Mumia with anti-viral drugs needed to cure hepatitis C that was dangerously compromising his health.That victory for Mumia may be responsible for a recent decision by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf that prisoners who are state Medicaid recipients with at least stage F1 liver cirrhosis be given anti-viral drugs.Building on these victories, Abu-Jamal supporters are calling for people to call the District Attorney’s Office to demand compliance with Tucker’s orders in favor of Mumia.A press conference and protests are called for May 30, starting at the District Attorney’s Office in Philadelphia at 2 p.m. EDT.

‘Hate Messages’: Telangana High Court Asks Home Ministry To Consider Representation For Registration Of FIR Against Twitter, Users

first_imgNews Updates’Hate Messages’: Telangana High Court Asks Home Ministry To Consider Representation For Registration Of FIR Against Twitter, Users Akshita Saxena27 April 2021 10:21 PMShare This – xThe Telangana High Court has asked the Central Government to consider a representation seeking FIR against Twitter and its users, who are spreading hatred messages through the social media app. While disposing of the PIL against circulation of “islamophobic” posts on the platform, a Division Bench comprising of Chief Justice Hima Kohli and Justice B. Vijaysen Reddy asked the Home Ministry to consider the averments made in the petition and take appropriate steps. The petition filed by Advocate Khaja Aijazuddin last year sought restraint on communal hashtags trending on Twitter as it may hurt the sentiments of the Muslim community. On Thursday, the Division Bench noted that the above prayer does not survive any longer as it has worked itself out. So far as prayer for registration of FIR against the perpetrators is concerned, the Court ordered, “In so far as the third relief is concerned, which is for issuing directions to the respondent No.1/Government of India, to register criminal complaint against the respondent No.5/Twitter and its users, who are spreading hatred messages, it is directed that the respondent No.2 [Ministry of Home Affairs] shall consider the averments made in the present petition and take appropriate steps, if considered expedient, as contemplated in law.” Significantly, the Petitioner had also sought a direction to the Central Government to restrain all online social media networks operating in India from carrying any Islamophobic Posts or messages hurting or insulting the feelings of the particularly community. This aspect, the Division Bench noted, may not be dealt with by the High Court. It ordered, “Having regard to the manner in which the second prayer is couched, this court being a State High Court cannot grant such a relief. It is for the petitioner to approach the Supreme Court for appropriate orders.” It is significant to note that the instant petition was first filed before the Supreme Court in April last year. However, the Top Court had refused to intervene in the matter and allowed the Petitioner to withdraw the plea with the liberty to approach the Telangana High Court, pursuant to which the present petition was filed.
