John Afoa suspended for four weeks for dangerous tackle

first_imgThursday Apr 12, 2012 John Afoa suspended for four weeks for dangerous tackle Ulster’s John Afoa has been suspended for four weeks following a dangerous tip tackle he made on Munster’s Felix Jones in the second half of their Heineken Cup quarter final at Thomond Park on Sunday. Here is a look at it, and an explanation of the ruling. All Black prop Afoa attended the disciplinary hearing in Dublin earlier today, accompanied by both legal representatives, and those from his Belfast based club, Ulster Rugby.According to the ERC, he was cited by commisioner Peter Larter after there were concerns about a fairly dangerous looking tackle – according to the laws – he made on Munster fullback Felix Jones.Afoa pleaded not guilty, but after independant Judicial Officer Jean-Noel Couraud had all the evidence presented to him, he felt that the tackle was in fact worthy of a Red Card. The tackle was deemed to fall under Law 10.4(j), Lifting a player from the ground and either dropping or driving that player’s head and/or upper body into the ground whilst the player’s feet are off the ground.Couraud concluded that it was at the mid-range entry point of six weeks, and added an extra week as a deterrent, in line with the IRB’s directive to stamp these types of tackles out of the game.Law 10.4(j) is as follows: Low End: 3 weeks; Mid Range: 6 weeks; Top End: 10+ to 52 weeks.Mitigating factors such as Afoa’s clean record, good character, age, and experience were taken into account, so judicial officer Couraud allowed a reduction of three weeks, therefore imposing the final suspension of four weeks. They have the right to appeal.Here’s a quick look at the tackle.

In a singular landscape, in the middle of a plain surrounded by forest massifs, four former farm buildings take place around a yard near a pond. The site lends itself so majestically to the pondering over the landscape and over the wildlife. Our intervention aims to highlight the local patrimony and respect it by the architectural creation.Save this picture!© Sophie CarlesThe main building, the only living building before de reconversion, is entirely cured to adapt itself to the modern constructive exigencies but also to find a volumetry that allows the development of the existent attic. The extension, in a wood frame, joins the continuity of the volumetry of the former building. The extension is covered with a cladding in a slatted reclaimed poplar. This material creates the same architectural language common in each building. The poplar is used for his resistance to the weather but also to his natural tendency to take golden and silver reflects getting older. It’s a living material that is taking a real part in the environment.Save this picture!© Sophie CarlesInside, the former part hosts he more private parts of the house while the extension welcomes the reception rooms. The “cathedral” living room is fully opened to the landscape and the pond, allowing us to enjoy the spectacular landscape offer by the nature in every season.

Venezuela Bolivariano: Después de derrotar al golpe, la revolución sigue luchando

first_img4 de marzo – Según las proclamaciones de Juan Guaidó, autoproclamado presidente interino de Venezuela, el día 23 de febrero sería su triunfo. La Fuerza Armada Nacional Bolivariana (FANB) rompería en dos y ayudaría a entrar camiones del USAID en el país, y luego le entregaría el palacio de Miraflores.Las proclamaciones de Guaidó, tanto la de su presidencia como sus planes para el país, recibieron mucha atención en los medios de comunicación internacionales. Pero por mucho que las mentiras se repitan en CNN, Fox, o el New York Times la realidad en algún momento se impone, como lo hizo el 23 de febrero.La unión cívico-militar se movilizó en las fronteras con Colombia y Brasil, y no dejó entrar a ninguno de los camiones de los Estados Unidos. A pesar de los ataques “guarimberos” durante varios días, los golpistas no pudieron producir el falso positivo que buscaban, y el presidente autoproclamado se quedó en Colombia, transformándose en presidente autoexiliado por un tiempo.Ahora los golpistas encabezados por Guaidó y dirigidos desde Washington han abandonado sus pretensiones constitucionales. Según el artículo de la Constitución que de primeras invocaron falsamente, a los 30 días de ser nombrado presidente interino, Guaidó tendría que haber convocado elecciones (así como lo hizo Nicolás Maduro cuando asumió ese mismo cargo después de la muerte de Hugo Chávez).Ante una movilización masiva en Caracas pronunció el presidente legítimo, Nicolás Maduro, que el golpe de estado había fracasado. Maduro sigue en Miraflores, Venezuela sigue en paz (tensa, pero paz), y el mismo Grupo de Lima se negó a apoyar una solución militar abierta.El día 4 de marzo, Guaidó regresó a Venezuela después de reunirse con varios jefes de estado latinoamericanos, el Grupo de Lima, y con el vicepresidente de EUA Mike Pence. La amenaza de una intervención militar disfrazada de una guerra civil sigue presente, y la lucha sigue.El poder popular frente al imperialismoHay que preguntarse si Juan Guaidó y sus aliados realmente pensaban que tenían el apoyo popular y de las fuerzas armadas. Como todo su plan de entrar “ayuda humanitaria” y derrocar al gobierno bolivariano necesitaba mínimamente el apoyo de una parte de las fuerzas armadas, es posible que hasta ellos se sorprendieron.Pero es más probable que lo que de verdad querían era montar el teatro para justificar una acción militar de los estados unidos. En sus 20 años el en poder, la Revolución Bolivariana siempre ha contado con el movimiento masivo como su principal defensa contra el imperialismo y sus lacayos en la oligarquía venezolana.En 2002 fue el pueblo movilizado en Caracas que liberó a Chávez y derrocó al gobierno golpista que lo había encarcelado. Fue también el poder popular que pudo aguantar y derrotar el paro petrolero de la oligarquía.Hoy como en 2002 ha sido el pueblo que ha derrotado el golpe de estado. La FANB se mantuvo unido y en defensa de la patria por su cercanía y unidad con las milicias comunales que se movilizaron en defensa de la patria. Durante el mes que pasó desde la autoproclamación de Guaidó y el fallido intento de ingresar camiones de Colombia, millones de chavistas tomaron las calles en todas las ciudades del país en rechazo al imperialismo.Los Comités Locales de Abastecimiento y Producción (CLAP) siguen activos a lo largo del país, distribuyendo comida a millones de venezolanos, e incluso buscan expandir sus operaciones. Lo que representan los CLAP no es sólo comida a precios accesibles, representa el pueblo chavista movilizado, y organizado, en las primeras líneas de la guerra económica.El pueblo venezolano lleva 20 años luchando para construir una nueva sociedad, independiente y de carácter popular. El imperialismo quiere el petróleo, el oro, y los minerales del pueblo venezolano, en eso no cabe duda, pero más importante que cualquier recursos naturales el imperialismo busca destruir la unidad y organización de un pueblo que durante dos décadas ha desafiado sus dictámenes.El golpe fracasó, pero la amenaza sigue presenteLa movilización del pueblo, en las fronteras y en las ciudades, derrotó al golpismo descarado de las más violentas secciones de la oposición venezolana. Pero una sóla victoria, por grande que sea, no puede acabar de una vez con un imperialismo de carácter global, adicto al petróleo y el militarismo.Mientras existe el imperialismo, existe la amenaza contra la República Bolivariana de Venezuela, ya que sus armas no se limitan a los tanques y las bombas. Durante todo el intento de golpe de estado las principales armas del imperialismo han sido económicas y mediáticas (sin olvidar la constante amenaza militar), y en estos planos el imperialismo sigue desarrollando su ataque.Hay que mencionar también que a pesar de que EEUU no ha conseguido apoyo para una intervención militar, el imperialismo tiene mucha práctica con las guerras clandestinas. Ya hay actividad paramilitar en los estados fronterizos de Colombia, y hay rumores de que Guaidó busca construir un “ejército liberador.” El regreso de Guaidó a Venezuela entonces serviría para disfrazar a la intervención de guerra civil.El gobierno de Cuba ya denunció movimientos de tropas en el Caribe, y el gobierno de Rusia denunció intentos de entregar equipo militar a las fuerzas de la oposición mediante Ucrania. (tinyurl.com/yy5hbzfe) La ofensiva mediática se ha enfocado en la crisis económica del país, manipulando cínicamente al sufrimiento del pueblo para construir un imágen de un dictador cruel que deja morir a su pueblo. Lo que nunca se menciona son las sanciones, unilaterales e ilegales en el marco de la ley internacional, que desde 2015 le han costado miles de millones de dólares a Venezuela.En los medios se habla de bloquear “ayuda humanitaria” estadounidense, pero no se menciona que tanto la Cruz Roja como la ONU descartó dicha ayuda como un instrumento político. Tampoco se menciona que Venezuela ya recibe ayuda de sus aliados e incluso está coordinando ayuda técnica con países europeos.En realidad ya existe una guerra contra Venezuela, sólo que es económica en vez de militar. Las sanciones unilaterales y el bloqueo financiero de los Estados Unidos es la causa de la crisis económica, y por lo tanto EEUU es responsable de todos los muertos y hambrientos que intenta usar para justificar sus acciones.La resistencia del pueblo venezolano pudo frenar los planes imperialistas por ahora. Sumándose a esa resistencia, miles de personas en todo el mundo se movilizaron el día 23 de febrero en solidaridad con Venezuela. Pero la lucha no ha terminado, y hay que construir un movimiento de solidaridad global. Hay que seguir movilizando y organizando para romper el bloqueo contra Venezuela y para terminar la guerra económica mientras se resisten las amenazas de guerra militar.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

UN’s special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression joins the OSCE in calling for withdrawal of “gag law”

first_img July 13, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 UN’s special rapporteur on freedom of opinion and expression joins the OSCE in calling for withdrawal of “gag law” “The special rapporteur takes its responsibilities very seriously and defends the right of everyone to seek and share news and information as guaranteed by the International Convenant on Civil and Political Rights, signed by Italy. We salute this official request which should be heard by the Italian authorities”, Reporters Without Borders said. “We hope that the UN will also apply the same logic to other laws that are just as worrying in other countries. The amount of draconian legislation has unfortunately hugely increased within the European Union as elsewhere in the world,” it added. News Help by sharing this information News “We repeat our appeal to all deputies in Italy’s National Assembly to reject such a controversial law and one that that has been condemned by so many international bodies. It would be inconceivable for a founding member country of the EU to pass a law being so clearly challenged at an international level.

A Bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde heard the submissions of Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, who appeared on behalf of the Petitioners, and proceeded to issue notice in the same. The application was originally filed as a contempt petition but the bench proceeded to consider it as interlocutory application. The plea on behalf of Jamiat Ulema-I-Hind, filed by AOR Fuzail Ahmad Ayyubi, seeks intervention of the Court against the directions/communications sent by Sarma to all the Deputy Commissioners and District Registrars of Citizen Registration in Assam, directing deletion of ineligible person along with their descendants, who had already been included in the final draft of NRC which was prepared under constant monitoring of the Supreme Court. “The present petitioner humbly submits that the present unilateral way the Ld. State Coordinator/Alleged Contemnor No. 1 has issued directions/communication dated 13.10.2020 amounts to willful disobedience/non-compliance of Orders dated 07.08.2018, 23.07.2019 as well as Judgement dated 13.08.2019 passed by this Hon’ble Court in the captioned petition”, the plea says. Underlining on the urgency stressed by the Supreme Court in completing and finalizing the preparation of the NRC in the interest of safeguarding the constitutional rights of the people of Assam, the plea submits that the “unilateral action of the State Coordinator directing reverification and revisiting of completed stages in the process set out under the Schedule to the 2003 Rules will lead to unending delays in the finalization of the NRC”. Therefore, passing the impugned directive/communication without the consultation of the Court and in face of repeated orders passed by the Court, amounts to contempt. Further, it is submitted that it also fails to take into the views of the stakeholders. The plea also refers to how, apart from the vague terminology of deletion of “descendants” from an already finalized NRC, Sarma has blatantly drawn authority from Clauses 4(3) and 4(6) of Schedule to Rule 4A of the Citizenship (Registration of Citizens of Issue of National Identity Cards) Rules, 2003, to conduct the re-verification of the included names despite the process having already been closed by the Supreme Court. “…the most crucial aspect of the present issue is that the newly appointed State Coordinator, against whose appointment the present petitioner has already preferred an application before this Hon’ble Court and the same is pending, has acted high-handedly and in complete contravention to the orders of this Hon’ble Court”. In light of the above, the plea prays for directions to the State Coordinator of Assam to not take any steps of deletion of any included names from the final NRC, without the express consent of the Supreme Court.Click here to read the application Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav granted relief to Amit Goswami on furnishing a bond of Rs. 20,000 with one surety of like amount in the case of vandalizing, looting and putting on fire a shop in Bhajanpura main market area by allegedly being a part of a “riotous mob” on 25th February 2020. FIR was registered on the complaint of Mohd. Aslam under sec. 147, 148, 149, 457, 435, 436, 454 and 380 of the IPC in Bhajanpura Police Station. The two co accused namely Mukesh and Sunil Sharma were granted bail by the Court vide orders dated 18.09.2020 and 30.09.2020 respectively. According to the prosecution, it was submitted by Special Public Prosecutor Naresh Kumar Gaur that the applicant was a member of the riotous mob which indulged in looting, arsoning, assaulting the complainant and indulged in “anti-national activities”. Moreover, it was submitted that while the applicant was actively involved in the riots, he also “chanted slogans against the other community”. According to the SPP, the 2 Beat Constables present in the area had identified the applicant to be a member of the riotous mob at the time and date of the incident. While the Court observed that the SPP fairly admitted that the applicant was “neither specifically named by complainant in FIR” nor there was any CCTV footage/video clip of the incident available in the matter, the judge went ahead to question the conduct of the two beat constables as to why they waited till 17th April 2020 i.e. date of recording of their statements under sec. 161 of CrPC when they had categorically seen and identified the applicant. “Being police officials, what stopped them from reporting the matter then and there in the PS or to bring the same in the knowledge of higher police officers. Even no PCR call was made by the said witnesses on the date of incident. This casts a serious doubt on the credibility of said police witnesses.” The Court observed at the outset. The Court therefore granted bail to the applicant subject to the condition that he shall not tamper with the evidence or influence any witness in any manner, he shall maintain peace and harmony in the locality and that he shall appear before the Court on each and every date of hearing to attend the proceedings.
