A hearing will now take place in February to debate whether the Act needs to be amended or scrapped altogether.A BT spokesman said: “It is important for everyone involved – copyright owners, ISPs, broadband subscribers including consumers and businesses, and institutions like libraries and universities – to have certainty on the law before proceeding.”TalkTalk director Andrew Heaney added: “We are very pleased that the Court has recognised that our concerns about the copyright infringement provisions in the Digital Economy Act should be considered in a full hearing. The Act was rushed through Parliament with only six per cent of MPs attending the brief debate and has very serious flaws.“The provisions to try to reduce illegal filesharing are unfair, won’t work and will potentially result in millions of innocent customers who have broken no law suffering and having their privacy invaded.“We look forward to the hearing to properly assess whether the Act is legal and justifiable and so ensure that all parties have certainty on the law before proceeding.” BT wins hearing in fight against DEA KCS-content center_img whatsapp Share whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

first_imgOver 150 people attended a rally in solidarity with Amanda Morales Guerra in New York City on Aug. 28.  Although she has lived in the U.S. for 13 years, Morales is fighting deportation to Guatemala by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.Instead of reporting to ICE on Aug. 17, Morales sought sanctuary with her three U.S.-born children in the Holyrood Episcopal Church in Washington Heights in Manhattan. This courageous 33-year-old woman is the first undocumented worker to publicly take sanctuary in New York City since bigot-in-chief Donald Trump became president and intensified anti-immigrant policies.With legal assistance, and the aid of community groups, immigrant rights advocates and elected officials backing her struggle to remain in the U.S., Morales was able to gain a 90-day stay in which to fight for her case to be opened by ICE and for her request for asylum to be granted.At the rally, the Rev. Luis Barrios introduced local politicians, faith-based leaders and other speakers who stated they were in solidarity with Morales’ struggle to stay in the U.S. and keep her family together and safe. If she is deported, as speakers emphasized, there would be no one to care for her children. Rev. Barrios asserted that his church will continue to shelter her for as long as necessary.Activists joined the rally from the church and the community, as well as from organizations, including the New Sanctuary Coalition and Haitian Women for Haitian Refugees.  The People’s Power Assembly and NYC Shut It Down! members marched over from a nearby People’s Monday for Kim Doreen Chase, an African-American, 52-year-old woman who mysteriously died in police custody in Baltimore on Aug. 20.The chant of “¡Sí, se puede!” (“Yes, we can do it!”) reverberated throughout the rally, as the crowd vowed to keep on fighting for Morales and the rights of all undocumented workers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img News News June 2, 2021 Find out more China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is concerned about three Tibetan monks – Sungrab Gyatso, Yeshi Sangpo and Draksang – of whom there has been no news since their arrest in early December in Gonghe (Chabcha in Tibetan), a county in the northwestern province of Qinghai, for providing information about a demonstration. At the same time, Wang Dengchao, a policeman and a pro-democracy activist, has been sentenced to 14 years in prison in Shenzhen, in the southeastern province of Guangdong.“Jail sentences and holding detainees incommunicado are radical measures but they are used routinely against human rights activists who try to disseminate information that the regime wants to suppress,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We are outraged by these practices, which show that the People’s Republic of China not only censors messages about freedom and justice but also continues to target those who transmit them. We call for the immediate release of the three monks and the policeman and the withdrawal of all the charges against them.”According to the Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, the three monks were arrested for sharing information about a student demonstration on 26 November in Gonghe County. Many Tibetan monks have been arrested and jailed in recent months for circulating information about protests and cases of self-immolation.Sungrab Gyatso was arrested by members of the Public Security Bureau on 1 December. Since then, no information has been provided about the conditions in which he is being held on even his location.The other two monks, Yeshi Sangpo, 37, and Draksang, 26, have been missing since 3 December, when they went to the headquarters of the local government in response to a summons to report for interrogation.Members of the People’s Armed Police (PAP) had gone to Khyamru monastery the night before to arrest them, but the monks inside refused to open the gates. The PAP responded by barricading the gates from the outside and denied access to other monks who arrived at the hour of prayer the next morning, suggesting that they address their complaints to the local government.Around 150 monks quickly set off but were stopped by members of the local Tibetan population, who feared an outbreak of violence. Government officials later arrived with special forces and, according to witnesses, said they had a list of 10 Tibetans for arrest, but for the time being just wanted to talk to Yeshi Sangpo and Draksang.As with Sungrab Gyatso, it is still not known where or in what conditions they are being held.Wang Dengchao (王登朝), the 38-year-old policeman held in Shenzhen, was given the 14-year jail sentence on charges of embezzlement and obstructing officials. Arrested in March, he had closed links with several dissident bloggers and often visited online forums, where he posted pro-democracy messages and criticized China’s judicial and political systems. to go further ChinaAsia – Pacific News January 4, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Enforced disappearance of three Tibetan monks following arrest March 12, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on China China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison April 27, 2021 Find out more Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Help by sharing this information RSF_en Receive email alerts Photo : Diptendu Dutta (AFP) Organisation last_img read more

Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and S. Ravindra Bhat while dismissing his application seeking extension of interim bail on medical grounds.Modi was granted bail by the Court for a period of two months on 15.06.2020 on the ground that his mother was seriously ill. Thereafter he filed an application for extension of interim bail for a further period of six months on the ground that his mother passed away and he had to perform certain rituals. He also submitted that his wife was suffering from serious ailments. This application was disposed by extending he interim bail for a further period of one month. It was made clear that no application for extension of interim bail shall be entertained.Thereafter, the accused filed another application for extension of bail  on the ground that he is suffering from epididymitis which is an inflammation of the tube at the back of the testicle. Taking serious note of repetitive filing, the bench observed:”Repetitive filing of applications amounts to abuse of process of law. This application is filed in spite of the order passed by this Court categorically stating that no further application for extension of interim bail shall be entertained. It is no more res integra that petitions/applications filed repeatedly are liable to be dismissed with exemplary costs. Therefore, we dismiss this application with costs of Rs.25,000/-.”The bench, however, observed that appropriate medical care will be provided to Modi.Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Not just Muslims, but every backward community. The fact that 50% comprised of people from marginalized communities should have been a matter of joy for our country. But you are running a show to run them down”, Justice Joseph said.Justice Joseph continued :”What kind of attitude are you inculcating with this? When 4 episodes have already been broadcast? Will you continue with this rant? There are other communities also who want to “capture the power”. The bottom line is you’re maligning community.”.The channel’s lawyer, Senior Advocate Shyam Divan, asserted that the show was not in violation of the program code and that it was only an investigative report about the terror-links of foreign fundings sourced by Zakat Foundation of India.The bench, presided by Justice D Y Chandrachud and also including Justice Indu Malhotra, however, maintained that the controversial show ‘Bindas Bol’, hosted by the Editor-in-Chief of the channel, Mr .Suresh Chavhanke, was propagating communal stereotypes.Justice Chandrachud illustrated that the show contained a pictorial representation of a Muslim with a beard, skull cap and green face, with flames in the background. Every time reference is made to a Muslim person, he is shown in a green t-shirt.He emphasized that the Court does not have an objection with investigative journalism or with reference to an NGO and its mysterious funds. However, it had exceptions to such a stereotype depiction of the community and the implication that an entire community has infiltrated the bureaucracy. “Whenever you refer to the Civil Services, you refer to the ISI and that is a serious concern as you show it as a conspiracy by Muslims. Of course do your investigative journalism, but can we allow such implications being made? How will you deal with that?See, we have no problem with you investigating into the funding of an organisation. But, to say that every member of a community represents a terrorist organisation just because some funding member is not above the Board, is wrong. Because this is where it goes from free speech to hatred as it implies that every member of that community has an agenda. You alienate the good members, who are like everyone else, of the community with this sort of a propaganda, he said.”I saw one of the episodes and it was hurtful to watch. Many pictorials are offensive and need to be taken off. You cannot dub an entire community”, Justice Malhotra too weighed in.While refusing to vacate the stay on the telecast of the remaining episodes of the show, the bench told the channel’s lawyer to inform the court how the channel proposes to address the concerns expressed by it.The Court will continue the hearing on Monday.A bench comprising Justices D Y Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and K M Joseph was hearing the plea which alleged that the show ‘Bindas Bol’ hosted by Suresh Chavhanke, the Editor-in-Chief of Sudarshan News, was communalizing the entry of Muslims into the civil services. On September 15, the top court had stayed the telecast of the show after making a prima facie observation that ‘the object intent and the purpose of the show was to vilify the Muslim community’.
