February 16, 2021 – Updated on March 5, 2021 Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago News Filipina reporter held for past year on trumped-up firearms charge But the release of this journalist, who is the editor of the Manila Today news website and co-founder of the Altermidya network of independent alternative media, has been blocked by the prosecution on the spurious grounds that the court’s decision “is not yet final.” People gathered in support of journalist Lady Ann Salem who has been detained for 2 months, on 9 January le 9 janvier (photo: Free Lady Ann Salem Network).

Division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice MS Karnik were hearing via video conferencing a PIL filed by Vikram Shinde who expressed concerns regarding lack of medical and essential supplies for the community pointing out that members of the community suffered financially after the nationwide lockdown was imposed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Advocate Aditi Saxena appeared on behalf of the petitioner and submitted that majority of the members of the community are sex workers and beggars, therefore the lockdown led to a complete end to their livelihood as social distancing became the new norm. Moreover, due to the stigma attached to the community, members were refused basic healthcare and protective kits. Their sources of income had dried up but on top of that, they did not have access to free ration provided during the lockdown as they did not have a ration or Aadhar card, the PIL contended. Court observed- “We are of the considered opinion that instead of keeping this PIL petition pending, the same should be disposed of at this stage with appropriate directions.” Thus, the bench granted liberty to the petitioner to file a comprehensive representation, incorporating all the concerns of the said community, within a week from date addressed before the Principal Secretary to the Social Justice and Special Assistance Department, Government of Maharashtra. Moreover, the Principal Secretary was directed to consider and dispose of the concerns expressed therein in accordance with law and by passing an appropriate order within a fortnight and asked him to communicate the ultimate decision to the petitioner immediately.

Ravikumar and Murali Purushothaman issued an order to this effect, disposing of suo motu proceedings taking cognizance of the under-utilisation of the virtual queue system.A report filed in Court by the Sabarimala Special Commissioner stated that although the entire 5,000 slots in the virtual queue were booked, the actual turnout of devotees remained far below this number. Pointing to the daily turn-out of devotees when the temple opened for the five-day monthly pujas in February, the report stated that some who had booked virtual queue slots were deliberately not turning up at the temple.Noting that genuine devotees were being deprived of an opportunity to attend the darshan on account of the overbooking, the Court directed the State to examine the issue and see whether there were unlawful gains or losses being made by the same.At the hearing on Friday, the Court opined that the cap on devotees could be raised to 10,000. However, the virtual queue system presently in use would continue to be utilised, the Court made clear, rejecting the Special Commissioner’s submission seeking a dismantling of the system.With the Court’s order, 10,000 devotees will daily be allowed entry into the temple, after duly booking a slot via the Kerala Police’s portal www.sabarimala.org. It was underscored that entry would be permitted only upon the production of a Covid negative RT-PCR report within 48 hours.In December, the High Court had raised the number of permissible daily pilgrims at Sabarimala temple as 5000 from 1000.Prior to this, a High Level Committee under the Chairmanship of the Kerala Chief Minister had decided on October 5 to permit pilgrimage at Sabarimala during the present mandalakalam season allowing 1000 daily pilgrims on weekdays and 2000 daily pilgrims on weekends and 5000 daily pilgrims on special pooja days. The pilgrims were required to register through the virtual queue system and to provide Covid negative certificate from an authorized lab. In its December 2020 order, the High Court had mandated obtaining an RT-PCR Test, holding that the antigen test could not be considered as a conclusive test positivity for Covid-19.Standing Counsel G.

Directing that no coercive be taken against Tea Garden owners/Companies, the Bench of Justice Michael Zothankhuma remarked, “This Court is of the view that liberty should be given to the petitioners to pay to the workmen any interim enhancement of their wages as they deem proper, till the issue is finally decided by this Court.” Earlier, on 08th March, the Court had restrained the State government from taking any “coercive action” against the tea estates for not following State Government’s last month Notification. The matter before the Court Vide the impugned Notification dated 23rd February 2021, the Government of Assam had enhanced the minimum wage given to Tea plantation workers by an interim amount of Rs. 50 per day w.e.f. 22.02.2021. This Notification was directed to operate till the finalization of revised minimum wages, in terms of the State Amendment to Section 5(1)(a) of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948. Through the notification, the minimum wage of tea plantation workers was increased from Rs 167 per day to Rs 217 per day by adding an “interim amount” of Rs 50. In this backdrop, the Indian Tea Association and 17 tea companies moved the Gauhati High Court challenging Government’s order. As reported by The Hindu, the Association and the tea companies had, in their petition, stated that the notification was “illegal in as much as, no Committee/Sub-Committees have been formed as required under Section 5(1/a) and Section 9 of the Minimum Wages Act, 1948.” As reported in the media and as per the experts, the move of the State Government to increase the daily wage ahead of the assembly polls was aimed at wooing the tea-tribe community. Significantly, the next date fixed by the Court to hear the matter is April 23 and by that time the polls in the state would be over. Case title – Indian Tea Association and 17 Ors. v.

first_imgNews UpdatesCovid 19- Plea In Delhi HC Seeks SIT Probe For Affixing Liability On State, Central Govts And Organizations For Failing To Curb Medical Oxygen Shortage Nupur Thapliyal27 April 2021 9:51 PMShare This – xA public interest litigation has been filed before the Delhi High Court seeking a Court monitored SIT investigation for affixing liability and accountability on Central and State Government and also on individual persons and organizations for their negligent role in failing to curb shortage of medical oxygen supply in the hospitals and other places in the national capital.The petition, filed by a final year law student Yash Giri and moved through Advocate Aditya Giri, states that the callous attitude of such organizations and people during the second covid wave has led to death of thousands of people across India.”Till today nobody has taken the responsibility and liability for the shortage in supply of medical oxygen and unpreparedness for the same during the pandemic. The infected people are thus subjected to inhumane conditions by being exposed to a situation where they are left with no oxygen supply and left with no option but to strive for the lives and others being forced to buy sky rocketed oxygen being sold in the black market.” The plea reads.Highlighting that the second wave infected an average of 2,60,000 people in the ending week of April, the plea states that the people of Delhi have been “frantically calling city hospitals in vain to arrange beds for their near and dear ones.””Their ordeal as described by them and reported across media houses states the utter un-preparedness and lack of planning by the Government. It was not just limited to the lack of medical infrastructure, they also spent a harrowing time trying to arrange a hearse to take the bodies to-the crematorium, thus facing acute mental and physical harassment and anguish.” The plea states.The petition seeks the following prayers:- Issue directions to Respondent No.l to submit its detailed status report before the Hon’ble Court clearly laying down the action taken against the accused persons involved and to bring on record the entire case file including the documents received from accused persons if any.- Exercise its powers under the Constitution of India and constitute a Special Investigation Team (SIT) under the able guidance of senior level officials of all concerned and handover the investigation in the captioned complaint to the SIT. – Issue directions to the SIT constituted to lodge the report and investigate the matter. – Continue monitoring the proceedings of SIT till charge sheet is filed and direct the concerned court to take charge thereafter as per the Criminal Procedure Code. – Direct the prosecution to be handled by a central agency like Central Bureau of Investigation or any other independent agency.- Direct the trial court and police to preserve all the available evidence so that it can be used in prosecution of the guilty.- Pass any such order or further order(s) in favour of the Petitioner, which this Hon’ble Court may deem fit and proper in the facts and circumstances of the case as well as in the interest of justice.TagsDelhi HC Special Investigation Team (SIT) SIT Investigation COVID 19 second covid wave Accountability Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgReading the lyrics to Alkaline trio’s latest album Good Mourning, not dissimilar to trawling through the cringe-worthy efforts of some fifeteen year-old trying to put blood’ ‘death’ ‘stab’ and ‘tears’ into all possible combinations. It’s stage we all go through, but a trait of modern punk bands is that long after these teen angst sensibilities have been relevant to their own lives, they find themselves pushing thirty and coming up with lyrics like I’ve got a needle scratching me, injects the poison of alcohol I.V.”. Either the band are functionally illiterate or any image that could evoke a feeling of goth-like inarticulacy is worth a shot. Pop-punk is tired. It needs more than unimaginative pseudo-poetry.ARCHIVE: 3rd Week TT 2003last_img read more
