UN expert report details Khashoggi murder

first_imgJamal Khashoggi File PhotoA UN expert has published a bombshell report about the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying there is “credible evidence” linking the Saudi crown prince to the killing and cover-up.Here are highlights from the 100-page inquiry published Wednesday by the UN special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions, Agnes Callamard, about Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018.Riyadh responsibleThe report concluded that the murder of Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, “constituted an extrajudicial killing for which the State of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is responsible.”She found Saudi Arabia had taken only “timid steps” towards addressing its responsibility through prosecution and reparations.The report also found that Saudi Arabia’s closed-door trial of 11 unidentified suspects did not meet global standards and should be stopped.Crown Prince implicated The report found “credible evidence, warranting further investigation of high-level Saudi officials’ individual liability, including the Crown Prince’s.”It stressed there was no conclusion made “as to guilt”, but emphasised Prince Mohammed’s liability demanded further scrutiny by “a proper authority.”It also said evidence pointed to “the 15-person mission to execute Khashoggi requiring significant government coordination, resources and finances.””Every expert consulted finds it inconceivable that an operation of this scale could be implemented without the Crown Prince being aware, at a minimum, that some sort of mission of a criminal nature, directed at Khashoggi, was being launched,” it said.Callamard highlighted evidence of the crime scene being “thoroughly, even forensically, cleaned”, insisting the “destruction of evidence could not have taken place without the Crown Prince’s awareness.”Recommendations Because Khashoggi’s killing was an international crime it should be investigated and tried internationally, the report said.Callamard also urged UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to launch a probe that could build files on alleged perpetrators and identify options for justice, including a possible ad hoc tribunal.Guterres “should be able to establish an international follow-up criminal investigation without any trigger by a State,” Callamard said.The FBI in the United States, where Khashoggi was a resident, should also open an investigation, the report said.Callamard called for sanctions on Prince Mohammed’s “personal assets abroad,” until there is proof that “he carries no responsibilities for this execution”.Recordings of the killing Callamard said her findings were based partially on recordings from inside the consulate before, during and after the killing.Khashoggi arrived at the consulate in Istanbul seeking documents for his upcoming wedding at 1:15 pm on 2 October 2018.Minutes before, a Saudi official identified as Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, can be heard asking whether it would “be possible to put the trunk in a bag?”A second official, Salah Mohammed Tubaigy, replied “No. Too heavy.”Mutreb said it would “be easy. Joints will be separated…”If we take plastic bags and cut it into pieces, it will be finished.”Later, Mutreb asked whether “the sacrificial animal” has arrived, according to the report. Khashoggi was not mentioned by name in the recording.Callamard said she could not establish the exact time of Khashoggi’s death, but that Turkish intelligence assessed he may have died within 10 minutes of entering the consulate.According to the recordings, a Saudi official told the journalist “we will have to take you back. There is an order from Interpol.”Khashoggi argued that there was no case against him and warned his driver and fiancee were waiting outside.Then a Saudi official can be heard telling him: “Let’s make it short.”Callamard said the recordings then featured sounds of a struggle, during which officials can be heard saying “Did he sleep?”, “He raises his head”, “Keep pushing”.”Assessments of the recordings by intelligence officers in Turkey and other countries suggest that Mr Khashoggi could have been injected with a sedative and then suffocated using a plastic bag,” the report said.Sounds of movement and “heavy panting”, as well as the sound of plastic sheets could be heard later in the recording, the report said, adding that Turkish intelligence had concluded these came after Khashoggi’s death “while the Saudi officials were dismembering his body”.Turkish intelligence also identified the sound of a “saw”, it said.last_img read more

Deep sleep may act as fountain of youth in old age

first_imgLoss of sleep in the elderly may increase the risk of developing a wide range of mental and physical disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, say scientists who claim that deep slumber can act as a fountain of youth in old age.As we grow old, our nights are frequently plagued by bouts of wakefulness, bathroom trips and other nuisances as we lose our ability to generate the deep, restorative slumber we enjoyed in youth, researchers said.They reviewed studies which show that the ageing brain has trouble generating the kind of slow brain waves that promote deep curative sleep, as well as the neuro chemicals that help us switch stably from sleep to wakefulness. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThough older people are less likely than younger adults to notice and/or report mental fogginess and other symptoms of sleep deprivation, poor sleep leaves them cognitively worse off, researchers said.The shift from deep, consolidated sleep in youth to fitful, dissatisfying sleep can start as early as the 30s, paving the way for sleep-related cognitive and physical ailments in middle age.”The parts of the brain deteriorating earliest are the same regions that give us deep sleep,” said Bryce Mander from the University of California (UC) Berkeley in the US. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveAgeing typically brings on a decline in deep non-rapid eye movement (NREM) or “slow wave sleep,” and the characteristic brain waves associated with it, including both slow waves and faster bursts of brain waves known as “sleep spindles,” researchers said.Youthful, healthy slow waves and spindles help transfer memories and information from the hippocampus, which provides the brain’s short-term storage, to the prefrontal cortex, which consolidates the information, acting as the brain’s long-term storage. “Sadly, both these types of sleep brain waves diminish markedly as we grow old and we are now discovering that this sleep decline is related to memory decline in later life,” said Joseph Winer of UC Berkeley.”Nearly every disease killing us in later life has a causal link to lack of sleep,” said Matthew Walker, professor at UC Berkeley.And, while the pharmaceutical industry is raking in billions by catering to insomniacs, Walker warns that the pills designed to help us doze off are a poor substitute for the natural sleep cycles that the brain needs in order to function well.”We have done a good job of extending life span, but a poor job of extending our health span. We now see sleep, and improving sleep, as a new pathway for helping remedy that,” he said.Unlike more cosmetic markers of ageing, such as wrinkles and grey hair, sleep deterioration has been linked to conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and stroke, researchers said. The study was published in the journal Neuron.last_img read more

VIDEO ExNFLer does hilarious impersonations of different pregame locker room personality types

Different players have different ways to get their mind right in the locker room.During his eight year NFL career, ex-NFL defensive lineman Anthony “Spice” Adams saw all them all. He recently posted a video of his dead-on impersonations of all the different locker room personality types, ranging from “The guy who listens to headphones with his eyes closed” to “The guy who posts inspirational quotes.”You’ve got to love “The guy who is always dressed the best.”All my teammates pregame in a different way!

WATCH Fans video shows him sneaking into Octagon during McGregorKhabib postfight chaos

first_img Advertisement I (later) asked my wife, “Salina, what happened with that guy, was he with McGregor?’ She goes, ‘Daniel, after he went and checked to make sure Conor was OK he just got back in his seat.’ I swear to God. He just climbed the rail and got back in his seat. I was like, ‘What in the world just happened!? What in the world just happened!?’ It was crazy. How did this dude end up in the Octagon, and then he checked to make sure Conor was OK and then he went back and sat down.”You have to give it to this guy. This took some cajones. Sometimes if you act like you’re supposed to be there, no one asks any questions.That was me 👍🏻☘️ Someone once said, when I go to war, we all go to war. @dc_mma you missed the bit about me on your back for the first 30 sec. You’re a wide strong guy. Thanks for listening to me at that intense moment. pic.twitter.com/XVwlet3Nb0— David Martin (@Sir_DavidMartin) October 16, 2018 The aftermath of the UFC 229 fight between Khabib and Conor McGregor was complete chaos. While Khabib jumped into the stands to attack a trash talking McGregor teammate, McGregor was blindsided by a Khabib team member who scaled the Octagon. The result was confusion and an overwhelmed security detail that almost completely lost control of the situation.One fan apparently took advantage of the confusion and used the opportunity to make his way inside the Octagon to get a close up look at the madness and check on McGregor. A Twitter user named David Martin posted a tweet with a video showing him literally inside the cage walking around like he was supposed to be there in a jacket and jeans. Nobody seemed to question him. He’s also showed himself outside which confirms it’s the same guy.Longtime UFC Heavyweight and commentator Daniel Cormier recalled running into the guy in the ring and spoke about during a recent podcast interview, which prompted the tweet from the perpetrator:“This is the craziest story. There’s a guy behind me, he’s wearing this nice jacket. (Something) McGregor. So he’s standing behind me and he goes, ‘Who do you got in the fight?’ This guy’s completely not into the game, right? So I go, ‘Yeah, I’m gonna go Khabib.’ So after the fight, when we all jumped the rail, I’m like in the Octagon pushing, and the guy’s like checking on Conor. He was like a fan, he was just like a fan that jumped the rail when everyone else jumped the rail and got all the way to the Octagon – he was like checking on Conor.last_img read more

EBRDfinanced solar plant inaugurated in Nisou

first_imgA solar plant financed by the EBRD was inaugurated on Thursday, on the sidelines of its annual meeting, which concluded in Nicosia.The park in Nisou, in the outskirts of Nicosia, includes five solar plants and when all are on stream, they will account for 12 per cent of the country’s solar energy production.On Thursday, one of the clusters was inaugurated, during an official ceremony. It is a 1.5 MW solar power plant which sent its first electricity into the national grid in the presence of the minister of energy, Giorgos Lakkotrypis and EBRD Managing Director for Energy and National Resources, Nandita Parshad.Parshad said the ceremony demonstrated the bank’s leadership in enabling and financing renewable projects, adding that the five solar plants, including the one which came on-streamon Thursday, were important not only because of more clean energy and fewer emissions in Cyprus, but they also demonstrated the energy revolution going on worldwide, to which the EBRD was deeply committed to support.Lakkotrypis said Cyprus, aiming to strengthen its security of energy supply and enhance its energy self-sufficiency, has been working hard to accelerate the deployment of renewables on the island and to create a competitive electricity market.The five solar plants , he said, were a tangible example of best private and public sector cooperation, and would contribute to efforts to increase the country’s solar generation capacity, achieve renewable energy targets.The unveiled solar power generator was built jointly by CYPV Energy Ltd, which has in total built three EBRD-financed solar generators, including a 1.5 MW plant in Dhali and a 4.4 MW plant in Frenaros, Cyprus’ largest to date.Dimitri Morozov from CYPV Holdings Ltd said that thee solar energy projects were a result of excellent cooperation between all parties.Two other solar plants, financed by the EBRD under the same project, were built jointly by Cyprus-based Athinodorou & Poullas Investments & Properties Ltd, a part of Athinodorou Group and T.P. Timotheou Holdings Ltd.In total, the EBRD loans of €10.85 million financed the five solar plants for a total installed capacity of 11.9 MW in the Famagusta and Nicosia districts. The plants will produce more than 21.420 megawatt-hours per year in total of clean energy, saving over 15,470 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year.They will increase existing photovoltaic capacity in Cyprus by 12 per cent, bringing the total of renewables in the country’s energy mix to about 9 per cent and contributing to its Paris climate talks (COP21) commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent by 2030 compared with the 1990 level.

India (Marxist)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF) government’s move to review the previous government’s phased prohibition policy in Kerala has not created big ripples across political circles in the state Barring Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president VM Sudheeran who incidentally imposed the policy on the United Democratic Front (UDF) government by refusing to allow the renewal of the licence of 418 ‘substandard’ bars on the eve of the 2014 Lok Sabha polls no other senior leaders of the Congress or its allies has come out strongly against the LDF move Sudheeran’s suggestion to conduct a referendum before reversing the policy has not been taken seriously by either LDF or the UDF since they consider the assembly poll in which the LDF captured power by winning 91 of the 140 seats in the Assembly itself as a big referendum Former Home Minister and current Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala had even termed the policy as a failure as it did not make the desired impact and called for changes in the policy Ramesh’s statement has emboldened the LDF which had taken an ambiguous stand on the policy during the election to revisit the policy Excise Minister AC Moideen prepared the ground for changes in the policy that sought to make Kerala liquor-free by 2023 by making a strong case for reopening the closed bars in at least major tourist destinations citing fall in foreign tourist arrivals especially in the MICE (Meetings Incentives Conferencing and Exhibitions) sector Excise Minister TP Ramakrishnan backed him saying that the long queues in front of the retail outlets run by state-run by Kerala State Beverages Corporation and Kerala State Co-operatives Consumers’ Federation (Consumerfed) was a disgrace to the 100 percent literate state He also cited a huge rise in drug consumption in the state to buttress his argument for reopening the closed bars However neither of them called for a total reversal of policy under which all 713 liquor bars below the five-star category and 20 percent retail outlets were shut down till 1 October 2015 even when the LDF maintained that abstinence was their policy Representational image AFP The statements by the two ministers are viewed as a move to reopen all bars attached to four-star hotels and stop further closure of retail outlets The closure of the next bench of 10 percent retail outlets is due on 1 October 2016 A hectic move by three star hotel owners to upgrade their hotels is seen as a reflection of the positive signals they have got from the LDF government on its liquor policy The excise minister said that the government will formulate the policy due on 1 April 2017 in consultation with all concerned Former Congress MLA TN Prathapan a strong proponent of total prohibition views the move the result of a deal the LDF had reached with the bar owners before the assembly elections He told the Firstpost that the bar owners who had tried to dislodge the UDF government by raising bribery charges against several ministers of the Oommen Chandy cabinet had flowed money to ensure the defeat of the UDF in the assembly polls “The LDF had run an extravagant campaign for the election with the help of funds given by the bar owners They had taken the money by giving an assurance that they will reopen the bars if they come to power The LDF has been speaking about the reviewing the UDF policy as part of this assurance ever since they assumed office” said Prathapan who is a close confidante of Sudheeran He said that the LDF leaders were not speaking about the total reversal of the policy as they may have realised the actual impact of the policy on the people and the society after they assumed office He said that the figures furnished by the excise minister in the Assembly regarding substantial reduction in hard liquor consumption were contrary to the statements given by the LDF leaders outside “The LDF government had also acknowledged steep fall in liquor-related crimes including domestic violence and road accidents following the introduction of the phased prohibition This is the reason why they are not ready to reverse the policy totally If they do they know the people who are benefited by this will not tolerate it” Prathapan said The Congress leader said that his party will mobilise the people against the government if they dilute the policy He said that the tourism minister’s argument that prohibition had affected tourism was baseless “Tourists are not coming to Kerala to drink liquor They visit the state to enjoy its natural beauty and cultural heritage This will become clear if the government orders a social audit of the transactions of the star hotels in the last 10 years” Prathapan said Father TJ Antony general secretary of the Madhya Virudha Samithi of Kerala Catholic Bishops Council (KCBC) also backed Prathapan saying that the numerous awards the Kerala tourism received at the national and international level this year was an indication that the tourism was not hit by the liquor policy Political commentator Jacob George believes that the LDF government will ultimately implement its own policy which is abstinence and not prohibition He told the Firstpost that the LDF government had no obligation to bear the burden of a policy born out of political intrigues “The policy was imposed by Sudheeran as part of his own political agenda The UDF government had announced the policy without due deliberations within the ruling front and consultations outside A policy not based on consensus will not stand the test of the time” said Jacob He said that LDF was not only concerned about the impact of the policy on tourism but also the serious dip in the revenue and loss of livelihood to thousands employed by the liquor industry Liquor which brought about Rs 12 000 crore to the state a year is a major source of the government’s revenue Kerala which grapples with a public debt of Rs 135 lakh crore cannot absorb such a huge loss in revenue "The LDF has been opposing the prohibition saying that it had failed wherever it was implemented Will they implement a policy that they strongly believe will not succeed I don’t think they will" says Jacob Now, October 17: 1st warm-up match.
