He stressed on the fact that United Arab Emirates has issued a general advisory to all countries to take back their citizens. Emirates Airlines has expressed its readiness to operate special flights to India, he pointed out.On the previous day of hearing, the Centre had submitted that it was no possible to discriminate between states on the matter of return of Indians from abroad.Responding to that, the counsel highlighted the readiness expressed by the Kerala Government to accommodate about 2 lakh foreign returnees and also the dwindling numbers of COVID-19 cases in Kerala.”Kerala’s situation is not comparable to other states. Also, public health is a state subject. If the State is satisfied, Centre should not be objecting”, he said, urging the Centre to dilute the blanket restriction on re-entry. He further said that the petition was seeking relief for specific categories of persons such as those who had gone in search of jobs for few days, people needing emergency  treatment, pregnant women and those in labour camps without jobs. Directions for their return in a phased manner were sought for.Petition seeks relief for specific categories of persons.1. Those who had gone in search of jobs for few days, and who have got stuck there.2. People needing emergency treatment, and also pregnant women.3. Those in labour camps who have lost jobs.— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 21, 2020In response, Suvin Menon, Central Government Counsel, reiterated the stand that repatriation of Indians from abroad is not possible at the present time.”The effect of lockdown will be diluted if Indians from abroad are allowed to return now”, the CGC said.Advocate Thulsi K Raj, appearing in a connected matter, submitted that India is the only country which is not allowing its own citizens to return. Right to family re-unification is an important fundamental right, the counsel added.In response, Justice Devan Ramachandran remarked that India has evacuated several citizens before and cited the example of students from Wuhan. “When country is under lockdown, situation is different”, the judge added.The bench then sought to know about the level of preparedness of state government in dealing with the foreign returnees, upon which the Additional Advocate General undertook to file a statement.The bench also sought specific information from the Centre regarding the extent of relief and aid granted through Indian missions abroad.”All of us are together here for a solution. But the solution has to be practicable”, Justice Devan added.The case will be next heard on April 24.Next Storylast_img read more

Their main contention is that “the coordination and determination of standards in institutions for higher education” is within the exclusive domain of the Union, medical education under Entry 25, List III, though made subject to Entry 66 of List I, being an Entry in the Concurrent List, the State is not denuded of its power to legislate on the manner and method for admissions to Post Graduate Medical Courses.Before the three judge bench, centre cited Dinesh Singh Chauhan case, a three-judge bench judgement which had held that the state cannot provide reservation to in-service candidates to PG Courses. However, the bench of Justices Kurian Joseph, Mohan M. Shantanagoudar and Navin Sinha agreed with the contention of the petitioners that, in the said case, the Court had not considered the legislative Entries and there was no reference to three Constitution Bench decisions of the apex Court, namely, R. Chitralekha and Another v. State of Mysore and Others, reported in (1964) 6 SCR 368, Kumari Chitra Ghosh and Another v. Union of India and Others, reported in (1969) 2 SCC 228 and Modern Dental College and Research Centre and Others v. State of Madhya Pradesh and Others, reported in (2016) 7 SCC 353. The case was then referred before a Constitution Bench. The Bench had refused to grant interim relief of separate source of entry or a reservation for in-service candidates in post-graduate medical degree courses.    Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

While dealing with the case of a bus driver, who was held liable by the Motor Accidents Claims Tribunal for accident with a two-wheeler vehicle carrying four persons, a Single Bench of Justice K. Murali Shankar observed, “It is high time for all stakeholders to review our mind-set that in cases of road accidents involving big and small vehicles, fixing the driver of the big vehicle as tort-feasor, as in majority of cases FIRs came to be registered against the driver of the big vehicle and investigations are being carried out in such a way to make that driver is responsible for the accident. It is also high time for all who are dealing with motor accident claims to review our mentality in considering the plight of the injured victim or the legal heirs of the deceased victim sympathetically and awarding of compensation in the accidents occurred by violating the Laws and Rules.” Arguments The Appellant-bus driver in the case at hand had submitted that the two-wheeler carrying four persons was trying to overtake a lorry ahead of them, without noticing his Bus coming in the opposite direction. He argued that the four boys, one of whom died in the accident, themselves invited the accident due to their own negligence. He further submitted that after seeing the two-wheeler with four persons coming in the opposite direction in a rash and negligent manner, he stopped the Bus at a distance of 15 feet. However, the two-wheeler rider was unable to control the vehicle and that the accident occurred for the reason that four persons had travelled in the two-wheeler The Respondent-claimants on the other hand relied on the case of Mohammed Siddique & Anr. v. National Insurance Company Limited & Ors., 2020(1) TN MAC 161 (SC), whereby the Supreme Court had held that the fact that a person was a pillion rider on a motorcycle along with driver and one more person on pillion, may be a violation of the law, but such violation by itself, without anything more, cannot lead to a finding of Contributory Negligence, unless it is established that his very act of riding along with two others, contributed either to the accident or to the impact of the accident upon the victim. Thus, it was claimed that merely because four boys were riding a motor-cycle will not by itself prove that they were responsible for/ contributed to the accident. Findings In his order, the Single Judge expressed his reservations as to the submissions made by the Respondent-claimants. He was of the opinion that two-wheeler vehicles are designed and are meant for travelling of two persons only. He observed that one aspect of carrying more than 2 persons on a two-wheeler is clear violation of Section 128 of the Motor Vehicles Act. Another aspect however, the Judge noted, is that carrying more than 2 persons on a two-wheeler inadvertently affects the driving style/ balance of the rider. The Bench elucidated, “Suppose if a two wheeler rider takes two grown-up persons or weighty and bulky persons or three grown-up persons in the pillion which is only meant for one person, what would be the effect or impact? Firstly, rider has to necessarily move forward towards petrol tank so as to give some place to those pillion riders which forces him to sit and ride in an unusual position and posture. Secondly if 2 or 3 persons are seated in the pillion, then they have to necessarily sit in a cramped or jam-packed position along with rider and the rider will definitely feel or suffer pressure behind, which in turn, will definitely affect or disturb his rhythm of driving and consequently balancing of the vehicle. Thirdly, if any one of 2 or 3 pillion riders makes any movement usual or unusual, that would make the rider to loose his control over the vehicle. In the above scenario, the movement of rider’s legs and hands would get restricted and consequently he can’t have full control over the vehicle.” The Bench added, “Two wheeler is only meant to take a rider and a pillion rider and not more than two at any cost. If the rider takes 2 or 3 persons in his vehicle, then he has to give more acceleration to increase the pulling capacity so as to take more weight. The efforts required from the rider to maintain the acceleration level would affect or divert his attention and concentration.” In this backdrop, the Court has made it clear that if a rider takes 2 persons as pillion riders, that itself would not amount to negligence. For example, if a rider takes his wife and a child or if he takes 2 small boys or lean persons, that by itself would not amount to negligence. However, if the rider takes 2 or 3 grown-up persons or obese persons, that by itself would amount to negligent driving since the rider can lose his control of the vehicle at any point of time. “In the case on hand, since four grown-up students had travelled in the two wheeler, I have no hesitation to hold that the rider and all the pillion riders are guilty of negligent riding / travelling,” the Single Bench held. The Bench added that the accident occurred because the rider could not calculate the time required to overtake the lorry, since the natural acceleration of the vehicle must have changed by the weight of four grown-up riders. It said, “Since the two wheeler was proceeding on the right side of the lorry and was overtaking the lorry, as alleged by the claimants, two wheeler rider should have seen the Bus coming from the opposite direction. Even after seeing the Bus, he decided to proceed further and in that decision, we can easily infer that he miscalculated the speed of the vehicles, the space and the time taken to cross that space between the two wheeler and the Bus, as he was carrying more weight than the prescribed. Considering the above, this court is of the clear view that not only the two wheeler rider but all the pillion riders are also liable for contributory negligence.” Before parting, the Court expressed that every road user owes a duty of care and caution and is duty bound to drive their vehicles in such a way not to endanger themselves and more importantly not to endanger the pedestrians, cyclists, two wheelers and other vehicle users.

Right To Life Is The Mother Of All Rights: Malawi Supreme Court Holds Death Penalty Unconstitutional

first_imgForeign/InternationalRight To Life Is The Mother Of All Rights: Malawi Supreme Court Holds Death Penalty Unconstitutional LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK1 May 2021 9:19 AMShare This – xThe Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal has declared that the death penalty is unconstitutional.”The essence of the right to life is life itself-the sanctity of life. The right to life is the mother of all rights. Without the right to life other rights do not exist. The death penalty not only negates, it abolishes the right.”, the Court (8:1) observed in its judgment.The court observed thus while allowing an appeal filed by one Khoviwa, who was sentenced to death. Referring to the provisions of the Constitution of Malawi, the majority judgment authored by Justice D F Mwaungulu notes that the same does not provide for the death penalty; on the contrary it prohibits derogation from the right to life.”Derogation from the right to life is prohibited directly and clearly by the Constitution. The essence of section 25, 26, and other sections that prescribe the death penalty in criminal offences is that they are derogations from the right to life – life itself, life in all its sanctity. Under section 45 (1) of the Constitution, the supreme law of all laws of Malawi, the death penalty, since it is a derogation from the right to life, is impermissible. Curiously, when the legislature in 2011 amended section 25 of the Penal Code, it removed corporal punishment, because of its prohibition in section 19 (2) (b) of the Constitution, and retained the death penalty despite that there could not, under section 45 (1) and (2) (b) of the Constitution be derogation from the right to life. This could only be based on the assumption that the Constitution in section 16 was, in the proviso, ‘sanctioning’ the death penalty. That inference is untenable for many reasons, some of which are clarified earlier.”, the judgment reads.The Court further held that Sections 25 (a) and section 26 of the penal law in prescribing death as one of the sentences and sections 38 (1) (for treason), 63 (1) (for piracy), 133 (for rape), 210 (for murder), 217A (2) (a) (for genocide) and 309 (1) and (2) (for housebreaking and burglary, respectively) of the Penal Code must be read as meaning the maximum prison sentence – life imprisonment. “If life imprisonment becomes the maximum sentence, where it is not mandatory, by fiction, it cannot be imposed, reserved as it were for the worst instance of a crime. Courts are, therefore, likely, to pass a prison term of years. Those who have served long periods of their life or long sentences are likely to get shorter terms or immediate release.”, the court said.Malawi is a country in southeastern Africa that was formerly known as Nyasaland.Case: Charles Khoviwa vs The Republic MSCA Click here to Read/Download JudgmentTagsMalawi Supreme Court Death Penalty Next Storylast_img read more

Unarmed man killed by police who fired 20 rounds at him

first_imgABCNews.com(NEW YORK) — Stephon Clark was in his grandmother’s backyard, trying to get into the house Sunday night when two Sacramento police officers unleashed a barrage of 20 bullets, killing him, Clark’s family told ABC News.Police were responding to reports of a black male breaking into a car and hiding in a backyard in the 7500 block of 29th Street, officials said.When officers arrived, they saw Clark and he advanced toward them, holding an object in his hand, according to police. Initially, police reported that Clark, 22, was armed with a gun, then with a “toolbar,” but all that was found on him was a cellphone.On Wednesday, police released video from the officers’ body cameras as well as night-vision, thermal-imaging video from a Sacramento Sheriff’s Department helicopter. The chopper video shows Clark running from a neighbor’s yard and leaping a fence into his grandmother’s property. The deputies in the helicopter can be heard saying the suspect had broken a window on the house next door and was checking out another car in the driveway.In that video, Sacramento police can be seen approaching Clark in the driveway before the view is obscured by the building’s roof. The video picks up with officers running into the backyard and jumping back behind the corner of the building for cover.The police body-cam videos show the police running down the driveway after Clark and taking cover at the rear edge of the building. They can be heard yelling several times for Clark to stop and show them his hands before the 20-shot barrage.“Show me your hands! Gun, gun, gun!” one of the officers can be heard shouting just before shots rang out.The chopper video shows Clark moving toward the officers before the shooting, but it was unclear whether his arms were extended.Clark, whose nickname was “Zo” based on his middle name Alonzo, was a father of a 1-year-old and a 3-year-old, according to his brother, Stevante Clark.“He was a people person. He always reminded me of an old teenager. He could talk about religion, politics. He was very intellectual,” Stevante Clark told ABC News. “He would stay at home with the kids. I was very proud of him.”Stevante Clark said his grandparents heard the shots in the backyard, but believed them to be firecrackers. It wasn’t until officers were around their house that they looked out the window and saw Stephon Clark lying on the ground, Stevante Clark said. “She yelled at them and called them murderers,” Stevante Clark said. “The cops didn’t provide us with any information about the alleged break-ins.”Authorities are still investigating exactly what happened, a spokesperson for the police department told ABC News.According to a press release earlier this week, police canvassed the area and found three vehicles with damages that they believed were caused by the suspect. There was also a nearby residence that had a sliding glass door shattered.According to Stevante Clark, he and Stephon Clark would regularly enter their grandparents’ house through the backyard because the front doorbell didn’t work.“It easily could have been me,” Stevante Clark said.Both officers involved in the shooting are on paid administrative leave.According to the spokesperson, Stephon Clark had prior felonies but would not go into detail about them.This shooting comes less than two years after the killing of Joseph Mann, another unarmed Sacramento man who was shot by police in the summer of 2016.His death led to a number of police reforms, including the requirement that all patrol officers wear body cameras and receive training in de-escalation.Berry Accius, a community activist in Sacramento, was at the forefront of pushing for changes in the department after Mann was killed. He’s ready to do the same again after Stephon Clark’s death.“There is no way for them to justify this. How do you shoot a person 20 times outside their grandparents’ house?” Accius told ABC News.Accius thinks this shooting will be a test for the police department.“Here is the moment of truth. This is now going to tell us if accountability, transparency and justice will be served,” Accius said. “If they are saying that this is a new culture of police then show us.”The family is in the process of getting an attorney and Stevante has started a GoFundMe to raise funds to bury Stephon Clark next to their older brother, who died in 2006.“I’m focused on his kids now,” Stevante Clark said. “I don’t want them to want for anything.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Tenant activists picket and block phone lines of leading lettings agency

first_imgDisgruntled tenants staged a protest outside an Edinburgh lettings agency office and blocked their phone lines to demand compensation for alleged breaches of the country’s Letting Agent Code of Practice.Tenants’ union Living Rent organised the protest at Braemore Sales and Lettings in the city to support two of their members who claim they suffered emotional trauma when their home was entered without permission as well as multiple GDPR breaches of sharing of private correspondence, email, phone numbers and home address.The two friends want Braemore to pay £5,000 in compensation and say although they have had an apology, they are still waiting to get a satisfactory response to their complaints.Rosalyn Watson says she came home from work to find a stranger – the letting agent – in her room, as she hadn’t been informed of a viewing, which left her feeling unsafe.Friend Ola Olsinova claims the agent shared her private information by sending eviction notices to the wrong tenants when their landlord decided to sell the property, as well as sending private correspondence to third parties, something the agency has denied.Under the code, a tenant needs 24 hours’ notice of a viewing and needs to be present.Lettings agencyLiving Rent spokesman Rufus Bouverie says the protest was peaceful and socially distanced.He adds: “Braemore’s main director was reportedly furious about the protest and the phone blocking that we did – when members called their phone lines – and has said that he will respond to our members within two weeks, which makes it a good action. We are also starting tribunal proceedings and have told him that.”He adds that the pair’s landlord has agreed not to evict them until next March.Braemore Sales and Lettings declined to comment.Rufus Bouverie Living Rent Braemore Sales & Lettings September 17, 2020Nigel LewisOne commentjeremy clarke, Belvoir Christchurch Belvoir Christchurch 17th September 2020 at 9:12 amGood grief, the compensation culture promoted by a bunch of p***s that obviously have far too much time on their hands and very little between their ears!Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?
