US court filing cites charges against Julian Assange

5 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
A pair of references to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a major target of the investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US election, in an unrelated court filing reveals the US government efforts to charge him, the media reported on Friday. In a filing unsealed last week, prosecutors for the Eastern District of Virginia included two references to charges against Assange while arguing to keep an unrelated case sealed for a different person charged with coercion and enticement of a minor, according to CNN. Assange, who has been holed up in Ecuador's Embassy in London since seeking asylum in 2012, is wanted by US law enforcement agencies after his controversial publication of classified diplomatic cables and other secret US government documents. WikiLeaks is also under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller for publishing tens of thousands of emails stolen from the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign.

UK lawmakers block suspension of member accused of sexual harassment

16 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Britain's upper House of Lords on Thursday voted to block the suspension of a parliamentarian who allegedly tried to force a woman to sleep with him in exchange for a promotion. Lawmakers rejected the recommendations of the House of Lords committee, voting by 101 to 78 to send the case back for review following a lengthy debate, where members raised concerns over the disciplinary procedure. The committee had called for Anthony Lester -- an 82-year-old human rights lawyer and member of the centrist Liberal Democrats party -- to receive the longest ban for a British lawmaker since at least World War II. The vote came as sexual harassment allegations swirled over both houses of parliament. An October report into the House of Commons found that a culture of bullying and inappropriate sexual behaviour "thrives" among members of the lower chamber. The House of Lords committee determined that Lester violated the code of conduct by "sexually harassing the complainant and offering her corrupt..

Sri Lankan lawmakers come to blows, leave one bleeding

16 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Sri Lankan lawmakers on Thursday exchanged blows and threw objects at each other, leaving at least one of them bleeding, as MPs loyal to President Maithripala Sirisena surrounded the Speaker in his chair after Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa, who lost a floor test, demanded fresh elections to resolve the raging political turmoil. Trouble erupted when Speaker Karu Jayasuriya agreed to a request from ousted premier Ranil Wickremesinghe's United National Party (UNP) that a vote be taken on a statement made by Rajapaksa demanding fresh polls. Jayasuriya had allowed Rajapaksa to make a statement as a member of parliament after stating that he does not recognise the claim of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) leader who lost a no-confidence motion on Wednesday. "I am the Speaker and I decide," Jayasuriya told the angry lawmakers as UNP MPs formed a ring around the Speaker's chair to shield Jayasuriya. Objects were thrown at the Speaker's chair and at least one MP was seen leaving the cham..
                 

Khashoggi killing: Saudis seek death penalty for 5

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Saudi prosecutors said on Thursday that they have pleaded for the death penalty for five people who they say were involved in murdering Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the country's consulate building in Istanbul in early October. At a press conference here, Saudi Attorney General Saud al-Mojeb exonerated Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the assassination of Khashoggi, saying that a total of 11 people -- the five accused by the kingdom of directly ordering and executing the crime and six others -- were charged in the crime, according to a report in CNN. Turkey, meanwhile, said it was "unsatisfied" about the Saudi prosecutor's explanation. The Saudi prosecution shared details of the journalist's murder, saying Khashoggi was killed on October 2 following "a fight and a quarrel" at the kingdom's consulate in Turkey. He had gone there to get documents for his forthcoming marriage. Prosecutors said Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a critic of the Crown Prince Mohammad, ..

Jamal Khashoggi murder: Saudis demand death for 5 killers

16 hours ago  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
Five Saudi officials face the death penalty for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi who was dismembered inside the kingdom's Istanbul consulate, but Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not involved, the prosecutor said Thursday. The announcement follows growing international outcry over the killing of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of the Saudi rulers who was last seen entering the consulate on October 2 to obtain paperwork for his marriage. Khashoggi died after being drugged and then dismembered, a spokesman for the public prosecutor's office said in the first Saudi confirmation of how he was killed. The journalist's body parts were then handed over to an agent outside the consulate grounds, the spokesman said. He denied Prince Mohammed had any knowledge of the murder. The deputy chief of Saudi Arabia's intelligence, General Ahmed al-Assiri, gave the order to repatriate Khashoggi and "the head of the negotiating team" that flew to the Istanbul consulate had ..

US cannot afford truculent child president: John Kerry

yesterday  
News / Mid-Day/ International  
US former Secretary of State Joh Kerry tore into President Donald Trump on Thursday for skipping a visit to a military cemetery in France, calling him a "truculent child". Kerry was visiting the UK to promote his book. "People are tired of the embarrassment of what took place in Paris in the last few days," Kerry said on BBC Radio 4's Today programme. "We cannot have a truculent child president. We need something serious." Trump has been hit with criticism for backing out of a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial in Belleau, France, last weekend while he was there to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I. "Every country is feeling the pressure of this nationalistic populist and in some cases very frightening rightwing advance," the former top official said. The White House said Trump was unable to visit the military cemetery due to inclement weather. On Tuesday, Trump tweeted he was urged to back out of the visit by Secret Service beca..
