Thai police chief Evidence in tourist murder trial not lost

first_img Comments   Share   BANGKOK (AP) — Authorities have possession of crucial DNA evidence in the murder trial of two Burmese migrants accused of killing two young British tourists on a Thai resort island, the national police chief insisted Friday, disputing reports that it might have been lost.The trial has drawn global attention both for the gruesome murders on the quiet, scenic island of Koh Tao last year and for an investigation that raised questions about police and judicial competency. 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Sponsored Stories The latest questions arose three days into the trail on Thursday when media covering the trial on the nearby island of Koh Samui quoted a police witness as saying some of the evidence may have been lost or destroyed. The court was expected to rule Friday on a defense request to re-examine the DNA evidence.“It is not lost,” national police chief Gen. Somyot Poompanmoung told reporters in Bangkok. “I repeat: Nothing is lost.”Somyot called it a misunderstanding that stemmed from foreign media covering the case who might have poor Thai language skills.Somyot said the local police investigator, Lt Col Somsak Nurod, was vague in his testimony and therefore was misinterpreted. Somsak was no longer in possession of the DNA evidence since he collected it and then sent it to the Forensics Medicine Institute in Bangkok, Somyot said.“Nothing is missing. It’s a misunderstanding,” the police chief said.The bodies of backpackers David Miller, 24, and Hannah Witheridge, 23, were found Sept. 15 on the rocky shores of Koh Tao. Autopsies showed that both had suffered severe head wounds and that Witheridge had been raped.Under intense pressure to catch the murderers, police carried out DNA tests on more than 200 people on Koh Tao before arresting the two Myanmar migrants in early October.

From the start, investigators faced a variety of criticisms, including for failing to secure the crime scene and for releasing names and pictures of suspects who turned out to be innocent.Prosecutors say the DNA evidence, collected from cigarette butts, a condom and the bodies of the victims, links the two men to the killings, and defense lawyers have been requesting that evidence for re-examination since April.Andy Hall, a British migrant rights activist working with the defense, said that handing over the DNA evidence was crucial to delivering justice.“Without the samples it undermines the opportunity of the defense to get a fair trial,” Hall said. “More importantly, if it is not provided, or if the forensics material is used up, it would undermine the credibility of the whole investigation.”___Associated Press writer Jocelyn Gecker contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Monitor Servicers Have Paid 46B in Relief Since National Mortgage Settlement

first_img Agents & Brokers Ally Attorneys & Title Companies Bank of America Citigroup Court Ruling HUD Investors JPMorgan Chase Lenders & Servicers Principal Reduction Service Providers Wells Fargo 2013-02-21 Krista Franks Brock A year after the nation’s largest mortgage servicers reached a monumental “”settlement””: with 49 state’s attorneys general and several federal agencies, the five servicers have reportedly provided assistance in the amount of $45.83 billion to 550,000 homeowners, according to the “”Office of Mortgage Settlement Oversight””: [IMAGE]The independent settlement monitor released his third progress “”report””: since the agreement Thursday. With the release of the report, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan specifically touted the efforts made through principal reductions. “”We have already surpassed our initial expectations, and the settlement is a testament to the fact that large scale principal reduction can be used as an important tool in our efforts to prevent foreclosures without incurring negative results,”” Donovan said. The greatest portion of the total $45.83 billion distributed since the settlement went to “”relief to support home ownership.”” About $24.7 billion went to these efforts. Short sales made up another significant portion of servicers’ efforts, totaling $19.5 billion. [COLUMN_BREAK]First-lien modifications totaled $6.04 billion, and active trials in progress currently stand at $3.49 billion. Refinance relieve totaled $2.209 billion, and forgiveness of pre-March forbearance reached $1.37 billion. In the fourth quarter of 2012, servicers doled out $23.9 billion in consumer relief to 276,413 homeowners. A little more than 33,000 homeowners received first-lien modifications amounting to about $3.86 billion in principal forgiveness. Another nearly 120,000 homeowners received second-lien modifications or extinguishments, totaling $8.76 billion. Relief through short sales in the fourth quarter totaled $6.41 billion and went out to 55,580 homeowners. In addition to observing the consumer relief efforts of the five servicers (Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup, and Ally Financial) in the settlement, the monitor accepts consumer and professional complaints through his website. He has received 5,700 complaints from consumers across all states. For the first six months, the monitor received about 550 complaints per month. Since November, complaints have averaged about 830 per month. “”This may be the result of greater awareness of my office, the result of persistent servicing issues, or both,”” the monitor stated in his report. Common consumer complaints include issues with loan modifications, changes in single points of contact (SPOCs) or lack of follow-up by a SPOC, requests for the same documentation to be submitted multiple times, and “”questionable or undocumented fees.”” Complaints from professionals also often pertain to loan modifications and customer service issues, according to the monitor.

LOS ANGELES — Boyz N the Hood director John Sing

first_img LOS ANGELES — “Boyz N the Hood” director John Singleton is in a coma at a Los Angeles hospital eight days after suffering a major stroke, court papers filed Thursday showed.The 51-year-old director’s condition was revealed in a court filing from his mother, Shelia Ward, who is requesting she be immediately appointed his temporary conservator to make medical and financial decisions for him while he is incapacitated.Singleton’s family had previously announced that he’d had a stroke on April 17, but there had been no details revealed about the seriousness of his condition.Friends, colleagues and fans including Viola Davis, Mark Wahlberg and Guillermo Del Toro have offered prayers and wished Singleton well since the announcement.Singleton became the first black director to receive an Academy Award nomination when he was cited for his debut feature, “Boyz N the Hood.” The 1991 film about the lives of young men in South Central Los Angeles starred Cuba Gooding, Jr., Ice Cube, Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne.His other films include 1993’s “Poetic Justice,” which starred Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur, 1997’s “Rosewood,” and 2003’s “2 Fast 2 Furious.”Singleton’s recent projects include the FX TV series “Snowfall,” a crime drama set in 1980s Los Angeles.The documents put the value of Singleton’s estate at $1.4 million.The papers say that at the time of the stroke, Singleton was engaged in several business deals and had been set to sign a lucrative settlement agreement on or around April 30. The documents say that if a conservator cannot sign the papers on his behalf, it will mean a big financial loss.The documents also include a doctor’s statement that Singleton is incapable of giving consent for medical treatment.Singleton had no existing medical directives in place before the stroke, the documents stated.It’s not clear whether the temporary conservatorship has been granted.Messages left with Singleton’s publicist and his mother’s attorney were not immediately returned.The family had initially acknowledged on Saturday that Singleton had suffered a stroke, saying he was “under great medical care” in an intensive care unit.___Follow Andrew Dalton on Twitter: .Andrew Dalton, The Associated Press by Andrew Dalton, The Associated Press Posted Apr 26, 2019 6:27 am PDT John Singleton of ‘Boys N the Hood’ in coma after stroke AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Feb. 3, 2018 file photo, John Singleton arrives at the 70th annual Directors Guild of America Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Murdered teacher had 2530 stab wounds his wife 10 Update 4

first_imgBy Elias Hazou and George PsyllidesA school teacher and his wife, aged 60 and 59, were found in a pool of blood after having been stabbed multiple times with a knife in their bedroom in Strovolos, Nicosia, early on Thursday morning.The man was stabbed 25 to 30 times and his wife some 10 times, according to post-mortem findings.Their 14-year-old adopted son managed to flee, running to a neighbouring house, and said the perpetrators had forced entry into the house. He was reportedly told that no harm would come to him.Police later said there was no sign of forced entry into the building and it didn’t appear to be a robbery.The 60-year-old man, Giorgos Hadjigeorgiou, was a maths teacher at the English School in Nicosia, while his wife, Dina Sergiou, worked for the Central Bank of Cyprus.Officers were searching for two perpetrators, who reportedly spoke with a Cypriot dialect and wore black clothes and hoods.The incident happened at around 1.30am.State pathologist Eleni Antoniou visited the scene first thing on Thursday morning, while autopsies on the couple were carried out at noon at the Nicosia general hospital.Speaking to the Cyprus Mail after carrying out the post-mortem, Antoniou said the two victims died of haemorrhagic shock caused by multiple blows with a sharp object.Giorgos Hadjigeorgiou was stabbed between 25 and 30 times, the majority of the wounds sustained in his throat and chest area, while a few of the blows were on the abdomen and legs.His wife Dina was stabbed about 10 times in the throat and chest.In all likelihood a single knife was used for both stabbings, the pathologist said.“It appears that the two victims were being stabbed alternately. The ferocity indicates a crime of passion, rage. Due to the blood loss, death must have ensued within four to five minutes,” Antoniou added.Police continued to search for the murder weapon.Police spokesman Andreas Angelides said authorities were not ruling out anything.“The investigation is ongoing, we are looking at all possibilities at the moment.”He confirmed that police were examining CCTV footage obtained from surrounding premises.The victims’ residence itself did not have any cameras installed.The couple’s 14-year-old son would be deposed by police either late on Thursday or on Friday morning, Angelides said. The son was not under arrest.The couple’s two-storey detached house is located on Zalongou Street, a quiet neighbourhood according to residents.One neighbour said the couple, who moved there around eight years ago, were quiet; of the teacher, he said he was also religious.In a post on its Facebook page, the English School expressed sorrow about the couple’s death and announced it had set up a crisis team to provide support to staff and pupils.“Our thoughts and prayers are with George’s family at this difficult time,” the post said.The school administration said it “feels that it is in the best interests of our students and staff to keep the school operating. This will allow the school community to come together to offer mutual support to each other at this very distressing time.”It informed parents that it had set up a crisis team, including a professional counsellor, to provide support to pupils and staff.  Photos Christos TheodoridesYou May Like10LikesTop 10 Smartest Interior Design Secrets10LikesUndoShlop Reviews & DealsThese Are The Top 10 Airlines With The Best Airplane Food & MealsShlop Reviews & DealsUndoKeySmartNo more leg-pokes againKeySmartUndo Two of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoGreece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoFilms and food at RialtoUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Teaching unions expected to accept Diko proposal

first_imgTeacher unions on Monday evening requested a meeting with the three-member ministerial committee on education to explain their decisions on three recent proposals seeking to end the crisis in public education.The three main teacher unions, primary education’s Poed and secondary education’s Oelmek and Oltek have had three proposals before them over the past few days by Sek, Diko and a secondary education parents’ group. All three proposals aim at helping to ease tension between the two sides that resulted last week in a 48-hour teacher strike with unions threatening to continue measures.Following a joint meeting, they said they requested an immediate meeting with the ministerial committee to announce their decisions.Earlier in the day, some union representatives said they would accept a proposal by opposition party Diko for an interim deal with the government to put an end to the crisis in public education, but the government swiftly rejected the plan.The government said that Diko’s proposal seems to pre-empt any future talks and ensured that what had been agreed on September 6 “will, in any case, be overturned and therefore does not assist in the implementation of that agreement”.In a written statement, the three-member ministerial committee on education said that the government considers that the agreement reached with the trade unions on September 6 is a satisfactory basis for talks.Sek’s prospoal, the ministers said, “gives a decent way for everyone and can be accepted, always with a view to launching the main dialogue on education issues”.They also called on the teacher unions to give an opportunity for the dialogue to start.They added that the government would “decisively carry on with the reform that aims at reinforcing state schools and the work of teachers and students but also the quality upgrade of public educationn”.After a meeting on Monday morning between the unions and Diko, the head of Poed, Phylios Phylactou said that he expected that all unions would accept the party’s proposal but after that the ball would be in the government’s court.“What remains to be seen is what the other side, the government, thinks about Diko’s proposal. We do think it is a way out of the impasse, a normalisation of the situation, just so that we can carry on and see the crucial and important issues of education,” he said.The unions had a meeting with Akel leader Andros Kyprianou in the afternoon, and, after that, each union was to inform their boards.The chairman of Oelmek, Yiannos Socratous also welcomed Diko’s proposal which, he said, “can give a way out of the stalemate created by the government”.The head of Oltek Panayiotis Lysandrou said that the proposal could help alleviate the crisis so that a dialogue can be launched “on the actual problems faced in education”.Diko’s proposal concerns amendments to the credit system the government had proposed on September 6. The government hoped for an interim deal to be in force until the end of the year to give time for talks.The government had proposed a credit system, whereby form teachers, who will still see their ‘free’ periods according to years of service cut from two to one, as announced back in July, would be compensated for this loss via a ‘credit system’ or through other incentives granted over the long term.The teachers counter proposed that, based on the credit system, a teacher who teaches more hours than the curriculum specifies, for example, should receive credit for those hours in the next school year. The government rejected that proposal arguing that it was predetermining the result of the dialogue.Diko suggested that the government proposal submitted on September 6 be accepted by all but teachers be given the necessary credit for possible changes in their teaching time. This credit could be given to teachers within the next two to three years, to facilitate fiscal balance.These arrangements, the party said, should only be applied in the current school year, and after that new arrangements could be introduced, to be agreed upon in the appropriate committees, with the active participation and consensus of all those directly affected.Sek’s proposal related chiefly to procedural matters to do with mediation.Poed and Oltek were said to be on board, but Oelmek were holding out.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

minister has been "misquoted" and "misinterpreted" Shahbaz Sharif Nawaz’s younger brother and the president of his party PML-N issued a statement insisting that the news report had “incorrectly

Nawaz rather than committing the serious crime of attacking the army for its role in terror attacks Pakistan People’s Party leader and former diplomat Sherry Rehman slammed Nawaz and said: "Pakistan has nothing to hide and always cooperated in the 26/11 attack trials We would not allow Pakistan’s honour to be hampered" Another PPP leader Aitzaz Ahsan thought it fit to criticise the formerprime minister and called his statement "way more dangerous than the Dawn leaks" Ahsan is a "certified liberal" and an "advocate of peace" between the two nations Former interior minister and PPP leader Rehman Malik demanded that Nawaz Sharif should redact the statements He blamed the terror attack on India’s intelligence agency the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and called Nawaz’s comments "extremely irresponsible" Incidentally Malik had admitted in 2009 in a televised address that “some part of the conspiracy (26/11 attacks) has taken place in Pakistan” A worried Pakistan army stepped

barrage of criticism Nawaz responded with another pushback this one more interesting than the previous one He claimed to have said "nothing wrong" completely contradicting the stance taken by his own party brother Shahbaz and Prime Minister Abbasi "What did I say in the interview that was wrong" a defiant Nawaz told reporters on Monday "Former president Pervez Musharraf former interior minister

hasn’t provided sufficient evidence to conclude the 26/11 trial Nawaz said: "There is no shortage of evidence — there is plenty of evidence" according to another report in Dawn Quite clearly Nawaz is taking on the military civil administration and even the judiciary whom he blames for being complicit with the deep state in ousting him from power This is the former prime minister’s last throw of the dice by which he hopes to cause sufficient damage to the forces that seeks to install a more pliant prime minister in Islamabad His strategy behind raking up the 26/11 attacks is to brew up a controversy in the media that the Pakistan army aims to keep under a tight leash in the run-up to elections The former prime minister feels increasingly powerless because the media is under huge pressure from the army to abandon its coverage of Nawaz This is being done to control the narrative As The Guardian says in a report "the ‘narrative’ the army ostensibly wants to block involves a vitriolic and very public campaign by ousted Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif accusing the military and the judiciary of jointly working against him" The army would rather have an Imran at the helm than Nawaz who has a history of taking on the deep state to assert control over Pakistan’s domestic and foreign policy Nawaz won’t go down without a fight because he still boasts of political

At an intuitive level we understand that America is extraordinarily open to talentfrom wherever it comes But it is not a meritocracy in the classic sense Its powerful institutions of access to education and other forms of power never have and still do not rely exclusively on what we would classically define as criteria of merit Its institutions have vast discretion to use a range of considerationsincluding a candidates wealthin determining admissions What is striking about the American system is how much discretion is built into it at all levels In factthe more radical question the American experiment poses is this: why do we assume that for a society to be able to nurture a vast array of relevant talent it has to be a meritocracy all the way down There is one sense in which it has to be meritocraticnamely that people are not excluded from participating because of who they are based on characteristics like raceethnicity or gender But beyond that it is an open question what principles nurture talent It is no accident that societies that are closer to being meritocracieslike Singapore and possibly Chinaare based on exams Pure meritocracies require objective measures of selection Although this is not a necessary consequencemeritocracies usually are suspicious of what we might call judgment and discretion In Indiawe signal meritocracy by largely removing all those criteria of judging talent that might be open to judgment and discretion Pure meritocratic societies will likely be exam-based But meritocracies have other paradoxical effects Kapil Sibals efforts to reduce the stress levels on our students are salutary But here is the bad news It is very likely that stress levels related to seeking your place in a meritocratic society will increasenot decrease The sheer pressure of numbers suggests this outcome We often forget that so far our education system has had limited reach Once millions more students start competing to find their place in the objective distribution curve of talent the pressures will only intensify If you think pressures in India are greatjust read accounts of what Chinas national exam system that determines places to universities entails In theoryyou could arguethat stress will not rise with numbers if you have a vast array of institutionswhere supply keeps up with demand But this will not be sufficient For the stress associated with exams depends upon the consequences attached to not coming out on top This in turn will depend upon the structure of economic opportunities on offer The more egalitarian an occupation structurethe less severe are the perceived penalties for not coming out on top Europe has in part escaped the neuroses meritocratic competition can induce because there is greater background equality In shortstress is not primarily about education It is about the economy And the real debate we need is on the kind of occupational structure we see emerging And: what is the relationship between education and that occupational structure But the relationship between meritocracy and equality also turns out to be more complicated As many in the IIT debate sensedthe character of admissions criteria determines who will do well Some think a single exam favours the privilegedbecause they can invest in coaching; others think a Board plus exam criteria will favour the privileged doubly over But all agree that a meritocracy must act as a counterweight to privileges of wealth But here the comparative evidence turns out to be more complicated For the instruments we use to pick out talentexams and so forthseem to vastly give advantage to those with access to a wide range of goods and privileges How to design principles of meritocracywhich genuinely aid social mobilityis not as easy a question to answer as we suppose Meritocracy also has two peculiar psychic consequences One of its unintended consequences is that it inculcates the idea that those who are left behind are somehow less worthy; and it creates a new form of inequality in turn There is also an argument to be made that over the last twenty years or so it is precisely meritocracy that has ideologically underpinned an ideology of great inequality As some social observers have notedpeople who rise through the system based on an idea of merit also have a greater sense of entitlement to all the fruits of their effort What is interesting about income inequality in places ranging from the US to China is not the fact that it exists It is that people at the top in particular and society more generally also came to the view that those at the top deserved what they have They deserved it in part because they rose on the dint of their own talent There is an odd sense in which privilege has to justify itselfbut merit does not But the consequences can be more paradoxical than we think Perhaps Aristotle was right in thinking that societies need mixed constitutions to function well They require an array of competing and diverse principlesrather than a single architectonic principle like merit There is a frustrating simple-mindedness to our debates over education The excessive focus we have put on IITs and IIMs is a manifestation of this While we tinker we themseveral actions underway in our systemincluding the way new universities are being builtcontinue to weaken our prospects as a society But debates over education are so narrow and short-sighted because we are not placing them in the right frame These debates are fundamentally about the character of modernity we are about to create The writer is presidentCentre for Policy ResearchDelhi express@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: July 27 2013 1:47 am Related News Arunima Sharma (26)an amputee from Uttar Pradesh15-year-old Raghav Joneja and eight other mountaineers who scaled Everest will be felicitated by former President A P J Abdul Kalam at Shanmukhananda Hall in Matunga Monday Arunima achieved the feat in 52 dayswhile Raghav became the youngest Indian to tame the heightsThe other awardees are students of Lawrence SchoolHimachal Pradeshwho climbed the summit in MayThe felicitation is on the occasion of silver jubilee of SIES College of Commerce & Economics The college will also present scholarships to 25 poor and needy students For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News Service | New Delhi | Published: July 4 2012 5:27 am Related News The Supreme Court will consider a Gujarat government appeal challenging a state high court order directing it to aid the repair and rebuilding of religious shrines damaged in the 2002 communal riots The Narendra Modi government found exception with the high court accusing it of inaction and negligence. he has collected a bond on one hundred rupees stamp paper that people now associating with him in the crusade against corruption will not join any political party. has been lonely since his partner Bombai died a few years later.
