General Assembly voices concern over Iranian human rights record

In a resolution adopted in the General Assembly, Member States voiced deep concern at Iran’s “serious ongoing and recurring human rights violations,” including a dramatic increase in the use of the death penalty, particularly for crimes “lacking a precise and explicit definition,” and the “ongoing, systemic, and serious restrictions” of freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of opinion and expression.The resolution received 89 votes in favour and 30 votes against. Sixty-four countries abstained. The death penalty drew particular concern, with the General Assembly noting “the absence of internationally recognized safeguards,” the continued practice of public executions, the carrying out of secret group executions and the imposition of capital punishment against minors.Member States also voiced deep concern at the practice of suspension strangulation as a method of execution, and the fact that prisoners continue to face sentences of execution by stoning, even though there has been a national directive against it.In the resolution, Member States also called on the Government to immediately and unconditionally release any prisoners who have been arbitrarily arrested and detained “for simply exercising their right to peaceful assembly and participating in peaceful protests.” They also strongly encouraged Iran to discontinue the “systemic targeting” of human rights defenders and review the country’s “pervasive gender inequality.” The text also noted Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s recent report highlighting the deteriorating rights situation in the country as well as the concern expressed by Ahmed Shaheed, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran, over the alleged targeting of minority groups by the Government. Arabs, Azeris, Baluchis and Kurds and their defenders have all faced rights violations that at times amount to persecution, according to the resolution, with religious minorities such as Christians, Jews, Sufis, Sunni Muslims, Zoroastrians and Bahá’ís.The resolution expressed particular concern at Tehran’s failure to launch an investigation into the suspected electoral violations after the 2009 presidential vote and strongly urged the Government “to ensure free, fair, transparent and inclusive parliamentary elections in 2012 that reflect the will of the people.” Member States further called on Iran to consider ratifying or acceding to the international human rights treaties to which it is not already party while effectively implementing those human rights treaties which it has already ratified. 19 December 2011United Nations Member States today expressed deep concern at reports of human rights violations in Iran, including torture, the use of cruel punishments such as flogging and amputations and “pervasive gender inequality and violence against women,” and called on Tehran to strengthen its national human rights institutions. read more

Ban presses for credible and peaceful presidential poll in Senegal

Senegalese voters are scheduled to go to the polls on Sunday to elect a president to serve for the next seven years, with 14 candidates reportedly in the running.Widespread public protests have been held around the country, with demonstrators reportedly angry that incumbent President Abdoulaye Wade has decided to seek a third consecutive term in office.Several people have been killed and earlier this month the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay voiced concern about the possible excessive use of force by Senegalese authorities in response to the protests.In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Mr. Ban said he hoped the election process would be “peaceful, credible and transparent… in line with Senegal’s long-standing democratic tradition and the aspirations of its people.”The Secretary-General said he deplored the recent deadly incidents and underlined the need for the right to peaceful and orderly assembly to be respected.“He calls on political actors to refrain from using or inciting violence during the electoral period and appeals once again for all electoral disputes to be resolved through legal and peaceful means,” the statement added. 23 February 2012Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today stressed his hope that this weekend’s presidential election in Senegal is peacefully and credibly staged after a campaign marred by several deadly incidents. read more

Legendary duo shines on screen in Stan Ollie

The ultimate odd couple, Laurel and Hardy charmed audiences around the world — until fame and fortune faded.On Thursday, March 14, the Brock University Film Society (BUFS) presents Stan & Ollie, the funny and touching true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy duo in the twilight of their careers.This bittersweet homage to the legends features Steve Coogan (The Trip) as Stan Laurel and John C. Reilly (The Sisters Brothers) as Oliver Hardy, with a script by Jeff Pope (Coogan’s co-writer on Philomena).In the waning years of an illustrious career, and facing an uncertain future, Laurel and Hardy embark on a gruelling tour of post-war Britain. The act is a hit with their adoring fans, but the partnership is threatened by the spectre of their past and Hardy’s failing health. Aware they may be approaching their swan song, the two try to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.“As a winsome glance back, and as a piece of artistic preservation, Stan & Ollie would be enjoyable enough. But it becomes truly transcendent in the hands of John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan,” says the Washington Post.“Every character is wonderfully realized, every performance is spectacular,” says IGN. “You’ll laugh all the way through, you’ll cry by the end, and you’ll see the brilliance of Laurel and Hardy come back to life via the very same cinematic magic that made them legends in the first place.”The stars’ combative wives are masterfully played by Shirley Henderson (Harry Potter) and Nina Arianda (Florence Foster Jenkins), providing what one promoter in the film calls “two double acts for the price of one.”Tickets for all BUFS shows are available at the Film House in the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre (PAC) on the evening of screenings. General admission is $9.50 or $7 for members, plus tax. Memberships are available through the Film House website.Visit the BUFS web page for a full list of this season’s selections. A calendar of films coming to the PAC over the next few months is posted on the Film House website. Look for the red B that indicates a BUFS-hosted screening.For more than 40 years, the Department of Communication, Popular Culture and Film has hosted the film society (previously known as a series) to bring some of the best in independent, international and Canadian cinema to St. Catharines. read more

ND confident of coalition deal

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram New Democracy expects to be able to form a coalition government with Pasok, allowing the two parties that dominated politics for decades to share power despite a major anti-establishment election vote.ND leader Antonis Samaras has promised to negotiate less punishing terms for the country’s bailout, after only narrowly beating Syriza, which ran a campaign scrap the austerity deal entirely.A senior ND official expected agreement soon on a new cabinet with the Pasok and possibly the moderate Democratic Left.Speaking late on Monday, he said a deal would be reached on Tuesday that would involve more than a symbolic involvement by Pasok in the government.“They will participate actively,” said the official, who declined to be identified.“Political leaders should be aware of the fact that this government is Greece’s last chance to remain in the eurozone,” the centre-left daily Ta Nea said in an editorial.“The Greek people are ready to reward the parties that manage to ease austerity and punish those that raise voices of dissent,” it said.The comment underscored the widespread expectation that a new government will be able to negotiate an easing in the tough conditions of the bailout despite resistance from Germany.The greatly weakened Pasok, which finished third in Sunday’s vote, has yet to commit to supporting Samaras, but its leader, Evangelos Venizelos, said talks must be wrapped up by Tuesday – signalling a deal would be agreed by then.The Democratic Left, which opposed the bailout, has also suggested it will offer conditional support to a government led by Samaras.Venizelos met with the head of the Democratic Left, Fotis Kouvelis, shortly after 10am to gauge support for a three-way alliance with their traditional ND rivals.“I am optimistic that this time they will agree to form a government,” a Greek banker who declined to be named told Reuters. “They have realised that there is no margin of error or further delays. A third election would be a disaster.”With ND taking a 50-seat bonus under the electoral law for coming first, a New ND-Pasok alliance would have 162 seats, a majority in the 300-seat parliament. Adding the Democratic Left would give it 179 seats. Source: Reuterslast_img read more

Joe Biden floats idea of a tax on violent video games and

first_imgIn a meeting about gun control with national religious leaders like Rev. Billy Graham, Joe Biden uttered the words that would flood the gaming subreddits and seep through to the rest of social media. According to an attendee of the meeting, Biden “floated the idea that media and entertainment that portray violence should be subject to a special tax, with the proceeds going to help victims and their families.” He also said that there was “no restriction on the ability to do that, there’s no legal reason why they couldn’t.”This is the ACLU’s fault (of course), since their bulldog attitude toward these sorts of initiatives make it totally safe for politicians to bluff about taking them up. Does Joe Biden have a plan in place, a congressional vote chart drawn out on a whiteboard in his office? Of course not; this is utterly meaningless wind, since everybody in that room is well aware that no such tax will ever be introduced. It’s been tried before, and the opposition to it is so strong that you can now even float the idea of a content-based artist tax and it’s such a non-starter idea that it usually has no fallout at all. It’s an issue that’s only useful in plastic-faced meetings like this one.The Obama administration has already made it clear, however, that violent media are a source of worry in a more general sense. They’ve funded research into the effects of exposure to violent games in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, at least hypothesizing the same link made explicit by Biden’s gamer-reparation plan. This might be more reasonable if that precise issue hadn’t been studied many times already. Hillary Clinton was banging the same drum for many years until she got enough power to concern herself with more important things, even going so far as to maintain a brief association with Jack Thompson.These are issues picked up and given a cursory run through the docket. A few speaking appearances, fundraising dinners, a likely bogus study or two, and problems can go away. They ignore the legal, constitutional, and popular opposition that has demolished many similar ideas in the past because there is no actual thought of bringing them to fruition, these days. It’s just wind, but that doesn’t necessarily make it any less repulsive to hear said aloud.last_img read more

AKEL Hasikos exchange barbs over CyTA land deal

first_imgFormer ruling party AKEL accused Interior Minister Socratis Hasikos of being quick to assign blame, as rumours suggested over the weekend that fresh arrests were imminent in the case of a suspicious land deal involving the state telecommunications company (CyTA) pension fund.AKEL accused Hasikos of being irresponsible and of acting as the judge and jury.The party also rubbished the minister’s suggestion that they should clean up their act.“In general, we believe that it is not ethical for party members or government officials to interfere in other parties’ internal affairs,” AKEL said.And Hasikos was the last person with a right to speak, AKEL said.The party challenged the minister to say how his party, ruling DISY, had cleaned up its act over its direct involvement in the 1999 stock market scandal.It also asked Hasikos to explain where the kickbacks of the purchase – in the late 90s — of an anti-aircraft missile system went and reached further back in the past to accuse DISY of never engaging in self-criticism over the 1974 coup to overthrow president Makarios.Police have so far arrested seven people in connection with the €20-million deal concerning land in Dromolaxia, Larnaca.They include CyTA chairman Stathis Kittis, two employees, and two police officers.Word over the weekend was that four more people would be arrested, all linked to AKEL.On Wednesday, a court heard that Kittis and an AKEL MP allegedly received one million euros each while AKEL’s Larnaca branch got €234,000.The latter was confirmed by the party, which denied however, that it was a kickback.In his response, Hasikos said he had not condemned anyone, but it was a fact that AKEL had admitted receiving the cash.The courts will judge whether this was legitimate, the minister said, “certainly though, it is politically wrong. We wonder, when will this money be returned to their only legal owner, the CyTA pension fund?”Of the missile system kickback charge, “for the umpteenth time, I was not a minister at the time,” Hasikos said.“Concerning where I was 40 years ago, or the stock market bubble, when again, I wasn’t a minister, no one cares. The matter is, what we do today,” Hasikos said.The land deal in question involved the purchase by CyTA’s pension fund of office space near Larnaca airport at a price reportedly several times the going market value.Allegations have surfaced that millions were paid in kickbacks to make the deal possible.More on this story here You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTruthfinderEnter Any Name, Wait These Seconds, See Instant ResultsTruthfinderUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
