Demand justice for Central Park 5

first_imgNews conference and rally, Feb. 4.WW photo: Greg ButterfieldNew York – Supporters packed the steps of City Hall on Feb. 4 to demand that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio make good on his promise to finally settle the case of the Central Park 5 and bring an end to the 25-year ordeal of these men and their families.The Central Park 5 youths – four African Americans and one Latino, all under age 18 – were framed by the New York Police Department and District Attorney Robert Morgenthau for the rape and brutalization of a white woman during the infamous Central Park Jogger case in 1989.The NYPD forced confessions from the youths amidst a racist campaign egged on by then Mayor Ed Koch, Gov. Mario Cuomo, real estate developer Donald Trump and the corporate media.The men were finally exonerated in 2002, when a convicted rapist confessed to the Central Park attack. However, billionaire Mayor Mike Bloomberg never made a serious effort to settle the lawsuit brought by the five men for civil damages.Three of the five — Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson and Raymond Santana -– spoke at the news conference. They talked about the longtime abuse and suffering faced by their families.“We continue to stand up,” said Santana, “because we know there are Central Park 6s, 7s, and 8s happening every day. Young people need to know what happened.”“We were not supposed to survive,” stated Richardson. “We were supposed to die or rot in prison forever. But we are here, and we are still standing.”‘City must do the right thing’The news conference also heard from Salaam’s mother, who is fighting late-stage cancer and said she was holding on to see the case finally resolved.Attorney Michael Tarif Warren explained that while no monetary settlement could ever compensate for the loss of the men’s youth, “the city must make a substantial showing. The city must do the right thing.”City Council member Inez Barron, former Council member Charles Barron, state Sen. Bill Richardson, former City Comptroller John C. Liu and others called on de Blasio to immediately settle the suit.The news conference was organized by the December 12th Movement, a revolutionary Black organization that has championed the cause of the Central Park 5 for the last quarter century. D12 leader Amadi Ajamu, who chaired the event, singled out the late activist Elombe Brath for his untiring dedication to their case.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Single Bench of Justice Navin Chawla has directed the Delhi Government to clearly state on affidavit if it is their stand that no elective procedure will be and is being carried out on any patient due to the present outbreak of COVID19 virus. The order has come in a writ petition filed by a person who wants to undergo an elective surgery but is continuously denied the same by various hospitals. The Petitioner has undergone the procedure of Pyoperitoneum with appendicular perforation on 30.11.2019 at one of the hospitals. She was then called again on 27.03.2020 for further procedure/surgery to be conducted by the said hospital. However, due to the outbreak of COVID19, the Petitioner could not be operated upon as the said hospital, wherein she had undergone treatment, was declared as a COVID hospital. The petitioner was then referred to another hospital for the surgery. However, even that hospital could not carry out the procedure on the Petitioner as the Petitioner was suspected to be suffering from COVID19 virus but was asymptomatic. Ms Shobhana Takiar, who appeared for the Delhi Government, submitted that the procedure to be carried out on the Petitioner is elective in nature and in view of the present situation with outbreak of COVID19 virus, it may in fact, be detrimental to the interest of the Petitioner to carry out the procedure. The Petitioner, however, submitted that she’s willing to undergo the risk involved in the procedure and also fears that any delay in the same may in fact cause further complications. While directing the Delhi Government to clarify the aforesaid stand on an affidavit, the court further directed the government, in case this is not their stand, to identify the hospital where the Petitioner can undergo the procedure that is required. The Petitioner in this case was represented by Mr Yogesh Kumar.Click here to download the Order Next Storylast_img read more

The lawyer had issued a public notice that Vithalbhai Babarbhai Patel was declared as the owner of the said land.Bar Council of India dismissed the complaint finding that there was no misconduct on the part of the lawyer.Assailing the order in appeal before the Apex Court,the complainant contended  that an advocate has not only a duty to his client but to the Court and society as well. Reliance was placed on two earlier judgments of the Supreme Court in  2001 (2) SCC 221 D.P. Chadha versus Triyugi Narain Mishra  and 2016 (6) SCC 1 titled State of Punjab and Anr. Versus Brijeshwar Singh Chahal. In DP Chadha, it was observed that a lawyer in discharging his professional assignment has a duty to his client, a duty to his opponent, a duty to the court, a duty to the society at large and a duty to himself. Perusing the Public notice issued by the Advocate, the bench comprising Justices  L. Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and S. Ravindra Bhat said: “Though the respondent-advocate did not mention the name of his client in the public notice, the Disciplinary Committee of the Bar Council of India was right in holding that the respondent did not commit any moral turpitude amounting to any professional misconduct. “Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Mere Gold Smuggling Not A ‘Terrorist Act’ Unless Done With Intent To Threaten Economic Security Of India: NIA Court [Read Order]

However, the agency has not been able to produce materials to prima facie show these aspects with respect to the ten accused persons.”After investigating for a period of more than 90 days, the Agency is not able trace out any material to substantiate the said suspicion(of terror funding)”, the Court said.The case diary only revealed that these 10 accused persons got involved in gold smuggling only for-profit motive. So they have to treated differently from other frontline accused who are alleged to be part of the larger criminal conspiracy.”NIA has every justification to proceed against few persons who have main role in the conspiracy of smuggling gold for various persons through diplomatic channel and to further probe into the chance of involvement of any terrorist organisations behind them. But in the case of the other petitioners who are so far shown only as persons who individually or together with some of the accused persons smuggled gold for their personal benefit, the court cannot detain them any further, unless there are some materials which prima facie show that they have any live link with the apprehended terror forces. Hence, in the absence of such materials, this court cannot, at this stage, find that there exists reasonable grounds for believing that the accusation made against these petitioners is prima facie true”.  The NIA also submitted that the custody of the accused was necessary for the purposes of effecting recovery under Section 27 of the Indian Evidence Act in relation to the mirror images of the digital devices seized from them by the Customs.In this regard, the Court referred to the Constitution Bench decision in Gurbaksh Singh Sibbia vs State Of Punjab (AIR 1980 SC 1632), which held that a person, who has been released on bail, appears before the investigating agency, he is under “deemed custody” for the purposes of Section 27.Accordingly, the Court granted bail to Said Alavi(A8), Abdu P.T(A9), Muhammed Ali Ebrahim (A11), Muhammeed Shafeeq(A14), Mohamed Anwar T.M(A16), Hamjad Ali (A19), Jifsal C.V(A21), Aboobaker Pazedath (A22), Muhammed Abdul Shameem(A23) and Abdul Hameed P M (A24).Granting bail to the ten accused with stringent conditions, the court directed them to execute a bond for ₹10 lakh each with two solvent sureties each for the like-sum. They were also ordered to surrender their passports, not to leave the state without the court’s permission and not make any attempt to contact any of the prosecution witnesses. Directing the accused to appear before the Investigating Officer as and when required by him, the court said they shall also present themselves before the station house officer (SHO) of their respective local police station between 10 am and 11 am on every Sunday until further orders.However, the Court dismissed the bail applications of three accused – Mohammad Shafi(A7), Muhammad Ali(A12) and Sharafuddeen (A13). The Court noted that the case diary revealed that Shafi had a deeper role in the international conspiracy.NIA alleged that Ali had links with extremist groups and that his mobile phone had an image of two persons who were sympathisers of SIMI, a proscribed group. Another image in his phone was that of a Malayalam news item that a person of Indian origin was killed in Syria, who was an ISIS terrorist. NIA pointed out that Sharafuddeen is a person who has close nexus with Ramees(A5) and he went along with him to Tanzania, from where also A5 has smuggled gold to UAE. The agency also told the Court that Ramees(A5) might have some connections with the proscribed terrorist Dawood Ibrahim, as a person named Firoz Oasis, a South Indian, is known to be in his company.Taking into account those aspects, A12 and A13 were held not entitled to be released on bail, at the present stage of the investigation.The prime accused, Swapna Suresh and P R Sarith, had withdrawn their bail applications.The case relates to the seizure of 30 kg of 24 carat gold worth ₹14.82 crore at Thiruvananthapuram airport on July 5 by the Customs (Preventive) Commissionerate, Kochi, which was sought to be brought through the diplomatic consignment sent to UAE consulate at the State capital.Click here to download the orderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more
