Expressing that the hearing had been a pleasure, Justice VG Arun informed the counsel that he would try to pronounce judgment by April 16, if possible, inspite of the Court being on vacation.In the meanwhile, the interim order issued on the first petition and the state’s undertaking in the second writ petition will continue, the Court said.  The petitions filed by P Radhakrishnan, Deputy Director of ED (Kochi Zone) challenge FIRs lodged against officials of the ED for allegedly coercing gold smuggling accused Swapna Suresh and Sandeep Nair to make false statements against the Chief Minister and other State Ministers. The last leg of the hearing on Friday, saw Senior Advocate Harin Raval for the Kerala Police conclude his submissions on the question of whether the two FIRs filed were related to each other. Following Senior Advocate Raval’s concluding submissions, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, Additional Solicitors General SV Raju and KM Nataraj presented their arguments in rebuttal and additional submissions in respect of the second FIR. Continuing his arguments from yesterday, Senior Advocate Raval averred that the FIRs in the two cases were distinct and that there are two separate FIRs, “they are not the same incident, there is no sameness and that the two FIRs are not connected” The Senior Advocate further contended that the writ petitions were filed mala fide after the Additional Sessions Judge allowed the Crime Branch’s application for a recording of Sandeep Nair’s statement under Section 164 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. In their rebuttal submissions, both the Solicitor General (SG) and ASG Raju raised the contention that neither Swapna Suresh or Sandeep Nair had alleged that they were coerced when they were presented before the jurisdictional court. Averring that the two were not coerced, SG Mehta said “There is a judicial finding (that they were not coerced)”. In this respect, he posed the question of whether the Kerala Police could investigate the correctness of Swapna’s statement made before the judicial officer or statements allegedly recorded by “two invisible lady officers”. SG Mehta proceeded to address Senior Advocate Raval’s submission that the two FIRs were not identical or from the same set of facts. Reading from the Kerala Police’s documents, he noted that Swapna’s FIR was lodged by police, and that the FIR states ‘from media reports it is learned that Sandeep Nair has written to Additional Sessions Judge Ernakulam alleging a similar offence, the entire matter has to be investigated’. Laying emphasis on the words ‘entire matter’, the SG stated that the words connoted that the whole issue was a single matter, “Therefore question of whether it is same or identical does not arise!”, he said. On this note, ASG Raju took over arguments from SG Mehta and rebutted the judgments that had been relied upon by Senior Advocate Harin Raval. Raising doubts about the credibility of the two FIRs, the ASG stated, “Neither Swapna or Sandeep made such a complaint (of coercion) before a Magistrate, this strikes at credibility of complaint”.On the question of whether two FIRs were permissible, ASG Raju referred judgments TT Antony v. State of Kerala and Ram Narain. In this respect, he argued that two FIRs were permissible only in a counter-case, and not where the FIRs were the same. “Sandeep was already there, so no discovery, no different version, it’s the same thing, same wine in different bottle..I can understand if Sandeep was not in the first picture .. If test of sameness is applied, second FIR has to go. The first FIR has Swapna and Sandeep, you cannot pick out Sandeep from the first FIR and say the two FIRs are different,” ASG Raju argued Referring to Amitbhai Anilchandra Shah vs CBI (Sohrabuddeen Case), he emphasized the principle iterated in that case – “Once you have treated it as one conspiracy, you cannot have it as two conspiracies”. He additionally argued that the FIR had to disclose cognizable offences. “You cannot say FIR can be a blank piece of paper…A FIR must disclose prima facie that a cognizable offence is committed”, he said, in addition to his other submissions. ASG KM Nataraj restricted his arguments to whether the Court could take cognizance of non-cognizable offence Sections 192 punishable under Section 193 of the Indian Penal Code. After referring judgments, he asserted that the Section 195(1)(b)(i) of the Code of Criminal Procedure would operate as a bar against taking cognizance of the non-cognizable offence punishable under Section 193 of the Indian Penal Code. The complaint under Section 195A of the Indian Penal Code could only be presented by a witness under Section 195A of the Code of Criminal Porcedure, he stated. Shortly before the Court closed arguments, Senior Advocate Raval made short rebuttals on the arguments made by the three-senior counsel for the ED. He stated that he never stated that the FIRs in question did not disclose cognizable offences. To ASG Nataraj’s submission that Section 192 and Section 193 of the Indian Penal Code were not cognizable, he pointed out that Section 154 of the Code of Criminal Procedure allowed a police to treat as cognizable offences when one or more cognizable offences were disclosed. He additionally argued that the question of credibility of witnesses (in reference to the women constables who averred Swapna was coerced) cannot be examined under Article 226 of the constitution. With reference to Section 195(1)(b)(i) of the Code of Criminal procedure, the Senior Advocate contended that the bar operates only at the stage of cognizance not at the stage on investigation.After these submissions were presented, the hearing was closed.Next Storylast_img read more

Peanut Butter Festival weathers the rain for another successful year

first_img “One year, we did have a hail storm and threats of a tornado but we’ve ‘weathered’ it all,” Bray said. “In addition to the inclement weather, it was also Troy University’s homecoming. Some of the vendors didn’t want to take a chance on the weather and we understood. But we had a large variety of arts and crafts and food vendors. We had demonstrations including a mule-drawn cane mill, corn grinding, butter-churning and broom-making, pottery and woodworking.”Bray said the entertainment was outstanding with the Benton Brothers and Company, The Harris Brothers, The Shiloh Mountain Boys and Unity.“We had a good crowd throughout the day and good parade participation with a lot of nuts and a successful 5K Run early in the morning,” she said. “All in all, it was a good day and we are already making plans for next year’s Peanut Butter Festival as we focus on Alabama’s Bicentennial celebration.” You Might Like Published 3:00 am Tuesday, October 31, 2017 Print Article Sponsored Content 123456PrevNextStartStop Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Peanut Butter Festival weathers the rain for another successful year Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Email the author Book Nook to reopen Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

California pastor found in contempt for ignoring COVID-19 mandates

first_imgKuzma/iStockBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(SAN JOSE) — A California court has found a San Jose church and its pastor in contempt for violating COVID-19 mandates as positive cases in the state are skyrocketeing.Calvary Chapel San Jose had been hosting gatherings of up to 600 people without requiring face coverings or social distancing in “blatant disregard” of state and county restrictions, according to a court order filed Monday in Santa Clara County.On Nov. 2, the court granted a temporary restraining order filed by the county health department to limit indoor gatherings to 100 people or 25% capacity, whichever was lower, and outdoor gatherings to 200 people, and required the church to submit a social distancing plan to be reviewed by the health department, according to court documents.Santa Clara County Judge Peter Kirwan has since found the church and head pastor Mike McClure in contempt of court for “willfully disobeying” the temporary restraining order by continuing to hold unrestricted indoor gatherings, including worship services every Sunday, with no attempt to enforce social distancing or the wearing of masks, according to the court order. The health department provided “numerous” photographs and videos as evidence.Additionally, the church did not submit a social distancing protocol plan to the county health department, which had attempted to get the church to cease and desist for “many months without the necessity for court intervention,” according to court documents.In the defense’s opposition papers, the church acknowledged a “legitimate interest in mitigating the spread” of the virus but also pointed out “legitimate health risks posed when citizens are barred from attending church services” in addition to potential “mental health issues.”Kirwan granted a preliminary injunction against the church last week, and a contempt hearing was held on Tuesday.Hefty fines have been issued against both the church and McClure.The church has been ordered to pay $1,500 per violation and and $1,000 per each violating event between when the first restraining order was issued on Nov. 2 and when the order was modified on Nov. 24.The church already had been fined several hundred thousand dollars by the health department before the restraining order was issued, court documents show. The fines totaled about $350,000 before the first restraining order was issued, according to The Mercury News.McClure faces up to $50,000 in fines after Kirwan ruled that he should pay $1,500 for each violation since Nov. 2, ABC San Francisco station KGO reported.After the contempt hearing on Tuesday, McClure told reporters outside the courthouse that it was not his responsibility to enforce the rules.“I’m not a policeman,” he said. “I’m a pastor.”McClure continued to say that he respects the judge and understands what the laws are, “but there’s a bigger law.”Defense attorney Robert Tyler, who is also the president of non-profit law firm Advocates for Faith & Freedom, plans on filing an appeal on the judge’s finding of contempt, arguing in court Tuesday that his clients’ First Amendment worship protections were being violated, according to the The Mercury News.“I can’t believe that we’re at a point in time in society where here we have governmental officials talking about how we need to be baptizing people,” Tyler said after the hearing, The Mercury News reported.In a statement emailed to ABC News, Tyler said, “SCOTUS has made it very clear that the government cannot deem a church inessential and ban in-person religious services while favoring “essential” businesses and operations like bicycle shops and airports. This is precisely what is happening in Santa Clara County and we believe the judge should not have made a finding of contempt. However, we have multiple challenges to this decision ongoing and believe we will prevail.”Last week, California Gov. Gavin Newsom announced new shutdown orders in southern and central California to avoid overwhelming hospitals.Hospitalizations and deaths have neared 20,000 daily in California, and more than 1.3 million cases have been confirmed, according to the state’s health department.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Tenant Fees Bill clears final parliamentary hurdle

first_imgThe Tenant Fees Bill has passed it final hurdle in the House of Commons and will now receive Royal Assent before becoming law on June 1st.Its final debate in the Commons took place yesterday after 293 MPs including Hunters’ chairman Kevin Hollinrake (left) voted  in favour of the bill and 220 voted against.“I am in principle and in practice very supportive of the Bill—I have been right from the start—despite my business interests and despite the extreme consternation within the industry at my support,” said Hollinrake during the debate.“It is absolutely right that there be a firewall around a tenant’s ability to shop around when they have found a house or flat they want to rent.“We are right to believe in free and competitive markets. This was not a free and competitive market, and it is right that we act in this area.“It is right that landlords pay for their own tenancy agreements, inventories and referencing. I support all those things.”Several minor technical amendments were included and passed, including one which banned agents from compelling tenants to enter into a contract with them for services – for example for inventories.But an amendment tabled by Labour’s shadow housing minister Melanie Onn (right) to reduce the deposit cap to three weeks’ rent was not included.David Cox, Chief Executive, ARLA Propertymark (left), says: “The tenant fees ban is now an inevitability, and agents need to start preparing for a post-tenant fees world.“ARLA Propertymark members should sign up to regional meetings, and our annual Conference on 2nd April at London ExCel, where there will be various talks from experts on the ban and what it means for your business.”Read more about the ARLA conference.   January 24, 2019Nigel Lewis2 commentsJason Davies, Davies Lettings Ltd Davies Lettings Ltd 25th January 2019 at 12:44 pmI’m a small Lettings Agency and have been working from home for the past six years, to build up my portfolio. I now manage just over 100 properties and I’m in the process of opening up an office on the High Street. I only charge tenants reasonable fees, but this ban is going to hit me hard. It would have been better if the fees were capped, just like with the amount of the bond that can be taken.If 220 MPs voted against the ban, then surely this says something!Like the person above has said – the criteria for a tenant being accepted is going to tighten and in my opinion, this will cause hurdles for those who are perceived as a high risk and not the ‘perfect tenant’.Log in to ReplyJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 24th January 2019 at 11:00 amWe’ve prepared already: No tenancies with pets any more, minimum tenant financial criteria has just gone up, no shares at all, and we have sold off 20% of PRS stock already with more to follow.Another genius bit of law.Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
