Alleged UK hacker wins US extradition fight

Alleged UK hacker wins US extradition fight:

LONDON (AP) — An alleged computer hacker from Britain won a court appeal Monday to block his extradition to the United States, where he faces charges in three states. The High Court in London ruled against allowing Lauri Love to be extradited, although judges said it would still be possible to prosecute him in England.

Love, 32, has Asperger’s syndrome and a depressive illness. His lawyers said it would be “unjust and oppressive” to send him to the U.S. to face trial. U.S. officials requested Love’s extradition on cyber-hacking charges alleging he compromised government networks between October 2012 and October 2013 and stole data.The decision in his favor Monday was greeted with cheers in the courtroom. Love said outside the London courthouse he hopes his case spurs discussion about how people with mental health issues are handled by the justice system.

Stephen Lendman: Netanyahu Off the Hook on Multiple Charges?

Netanyahu Off the Hook on Multiple Charges?:

by Stephen Lendman

Previous articles discussed them. He’s been investigated for over two years for alleged bribery, fraud, and breach of trust.

Reportedly he accepted about $1.1 million from accused French fraudster Arnaud Mimran in 2009.

He faces possible charges in so-called Cases 1,000 and 2,000 – the first on suspicion of inappropriately or illegally receiving lavish gifts from wealthy supporters, amounting to possible bribes.

The second case involves him getting caught red-handed on tape, negotiating a quid pro quo with Yedioth Ahronoth publisher Arnon Mozes for more favorable broadsheet coverage in return for legislation prohibiting distribution of the free daily Israel Hayom, YA’s main competitor, owned by Netanyahu supporter Sheldon Adelson.

Former State Prosecutor’s Office financial investigations department head Avia Alef said if the above report is true, “there is no question that this is bribery.”

Epic Corruption: Unsealed Court Documents Show How Prosecutors Tried To Rig The Bundy Trial

Epic Corruption: Unsealed Court Documents Show How Prosecutors Tried To Rig The Bundy Trial:

Authored by Tim Pearce via The Daily Caller,

Unsealed court documents detail how the team of prosecutors tasked with convicting Cliven Bundy and his sons of crimes relating to a 2014 armed standoff failed to turn over potential exculpatory evidence to the court, The Oregonian reports.

The Bundys’ case ended in a mistrial Dec. 20 after Judge Gloria Navarro ruled that prosecutors violated the civil rights of the defendants by withholding evidence supporting the Bundys’ case. Navarro is considering dismissing the case “with prejudice” and blocking prosecutors from retrying the case. Her decision will come Jan. 8, according to The New York Times.

Israeli court sentences 68-year-old Bedouin citizen to 10 months in prison – for trespassing on his own land

Israeli court sentences 68-year-old Bedouin citizen to 10 months in prison – for trespassing on his own land:

The Bedouin village of Al Araqib in the southern Negev has been demolished for well over 100 times. Its ethnic cleansing follows a similar pattern and logic to that of other Bedouin villages such as Umm Al Hiran, which saw violent ethnic cleansing operations this year, also involving extrajudicial execution of an Israeli Bedouin citizen.

Now the state reaches new heights of Kafkaesque madness: Sheikh Saih Abu Madiam, 68, is sentenced to 10 months in prison, 5 additional months of conditional imprisonment, as well as a fine of 36,000 Shekels (over $10,000), as Haaretz reported (Hebrew).  

The offense: Abu Madiam has supposedly trespassed state land – which he claims is his own.

“Court Jihad”: How the French Justice System Assists Islamists

*****

“Court Jihad”: How the French Justice System Assists Islamists:

  • In France, all the circumlocutions for the word “terrorist” appear to have the same goal: to deny that Islamist terrorism is a coordinated movement and that Islamist warriors are mainly French citizens engaged in a war against their own country.
  • If you deny that terrorism is a war, you also logically have to deny that terrorists are supported, sheltered, transported and financed by a grey zone of supposedly peaceful French citizens.
  • In France today, the result of the denial of war is the “anti-racism” movement. Anyone who dares to question Islam or Islamism in its relation to violence and terrorism risks being hauled into court and tried as a “racist.”

When members of a small French far-right nationalist group, Génération Identitaire, occupied a mosque under construction in Poitiers in 2012 and said they were celebrating the anniversary of the battle of Poitiers (732 AD), in which Charles Martel defeated the army of the Ummayad Caliphate, thereby routing the Arab invasion of France, the prosecutor of the Republic of France launched an immediate investigation for “incitement to racial hatred.” Five of the activists were arrested, indicted, and this month, sentenced to one-year suspended prison sentences. The court sentenced four of them to deprivation of their civic rights (such as the right to vote in elections) for the next five years. In addition, the Génération Identitaire organization had to pay a fine of 10,000 euros, and the four activists had to pay a fine of 24,000 euros to the organization “Muslims of France” (“Musulmans de France“), which is the owner of the mosque and the legal representative in France of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood movement. If the fine is not paid, the activists will go to jail.

The lawyer for Génération Identitaire, Frederic Pichon, said he was “flabbergasted by the severity of the sentence” and that the decision was “political”. “I cannot help comparing it with the incredible impunity that… Femen received when it burst into the cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris,” he said.

Judge says SORRY as he gives £110,000 payout to African refugee jailed twice for sex attacks after he was locked up for too long when his home country refused to take him back:

Judge says SORRY as he gives £110,000 payout to African refugee jailed twice for sex attacks after he was locked up for too long when his home country refused to take him back:

  • Aliou Bah, 28, from Guinea, has twice been convicted and jailed for sex assaults
  • Refugee was then kept in prison for 21 months after serving his sentences
  • Home Office battled to deport him to Guinea – but country refused to take him
  • No-one has been successfully deported to the West African state since 2006
  • Judge rules he’s owed compensation because he unlikely to be deported
  • Do you know Aliou Bah? Email tips@dailymail.com

A migrant jailed twice for sex attacks has won £110,000 compensation for being locked up too long – after his own country refused to take him back.

The judge who awarded the money admitted he ‘wholeheartedly’ agreed that many would think it was the victims of 28-year-old Aliou Bah who deserved large payouts instead.

Bah, from Guinea, had been imprisoned twice for serious assaults – including an attack on a 16-year-old girl – and placed on the sex offenders’ register.

State Duma approves life sentences for terrorist recruiters

State Duma approves life sentences for terrorist recruiters:

Russia’s Lower House has passed a bill introducing life sentences for terrorist recruiters and lengthy prison terms for criminals convicted of sponsoring terrorist groups or of propagating terrorism.

The new law will change the maximum sentence for coercing someone into terrorist activities, or for providing training for would-be terrorists, from ten years in prison to a full life term. The bill also proposes life sentences for organizing terrorist groups and communities, for sponsorship terrorism, for hostage-taking, as well as for hijacking ships or aircraft.

The bill was drafted earlier this year by deputy chairman of majority caucus United Russia, MP Adalbi Shkhagoshev, and was passed on its third and final reading.

Mastermind Of $4 Billion Bitcoin-Laundering Operation Will Be Extradited To US

Mastermind Of $4 Billion Bitcoin-Laundering Operation Will Be Extradited To US:

Greece’s Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by Russian national Aleksandr Vinnik, the purported mastermind of what US authorities have described as a $4 billion bitcoin money laundering operation, to avoid extradition to the US, where he has been indicted – along with his former company, mysterious digital currency exchange BTC-e – on nearly two dozen felony counts, including fraud and money laundering.

Russia, where Vinnik is accused of stealing 600,000 rubles ($10,500) from an unidentified entity “using… deception and the internet,” also requested extradition. The competing request had earlier been approved by another court ruling, but the final decision on the matter will be made by the Greek Minister of Justice.

Russia criticized the court’s first decision as unjust and illegal, saying that its request “takes precedence [over another country’s] as Vinnik is a citizen of the Russian Federation.”

US Gov’t Continues to Argue in Favor of Indefinitely Detaining an American Citizen

US Gov’t Continues to Argue in Favor of Indefinitely Detaining an American Citizen:

On Monday a federal judge challenged the U.S. government to justify the continued imprisonment of an American citizen who has been denied access to a lawyer for over three months.

(AP) — U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan has expressed skepticism and frustration over the U.S. government’s arguments for detaining an American citizen for three months. On Monday, at the latest hearing in the case of American Civil Liberties Union v. Mattis, the Justice Department argued that the court had no authority to rule on wartime detentions by U.S. military in an overseas conflict zone. Judge Chutkan seemed to lean in favor of the ACLU’s argument that the man should have access to a lawyer, which he has been denied thus far.

Meanwhile in Britain… African Refugee Handed £110,000 For Being Jailed Too Long For Sex Attacks

African refugee handed £110,000 for being jailed too long for sex attacks:

A judge has said sorry after he awarded a sex attacker £110,000 because he was kept in prison for too long.

Aliou Bah, 28, a refugee from Guinea, was twice jailed for sex assaults, including one on a 16-year-old girl.

However, he was kept in prison for an extra 21 months after serving his sentences while the Home Office tried to get him deported back to West Africa.

Judge Nicholas Madge blamed a series of Home Office blunders that led to his extended detention.

He said that it is the victims of sexual abuse who should be paid large sums of compensation, not their attackers.

France: Court acquits Cape Verdean man who Impregnated 11 y/o Girl because “there was No Coercion”

France: Court acquits Cape Verdean man who Impregnated 11 y/o Girl because “there was No Coercion”:

French newspaper Le Parisien published a story on 11 November, which it updated on the 14th, about the verdict in a rape case. The accused was acquitted of raping a minor by the jury of the Criminal Trial Court (Court of Assizes) of Seine-et-Marne, East of Paris. At the hearing, the Advocate General had requested eight years’ imprisonment plus psychological evaluation. The verdict has now been appealed by the Prosecutor General of the Court of Appeal of Paris. In response, Dominique Laurens, the prosecutor of Meaux, said:

Up to 15 years, a child must be protected. You cannot obtain sex [in a normal way.] Its consent is not informed.

The case was started when, in January 2010, Justine (a pseudonym), at the time a mere 11 years old, was found out to be pregnant by her family. Until that point, the child had never mentioned the ‘bad meeting’ that had taken place one evening in August 2009, with the then 22-year-old suspect, who is originally from Cape Verde.

Originally from Congo, Justine, then living in Nevers in the North-East of France, spent her holidays with her uncle in Seine-et-Marne. When she was playing at the foot of the building with her cousin, a man approached her.

Justine always claimed that she told this stranger her age. Nevertheless, he asked her to accompany him to the park and she accepted. There, he began to undress her and asked her to lie down on the ground. He held her hands and penetrated her. She asked him to stop, but he continued. A few minutes later, she returned to her uncle, not saying anything. Justine gave birth in May 2010, to a little boy, who was placed with a foster family.

Mainstream Media Now Promoting “Gun Confiscation Orders” As Solution To Mass Shootings

Mainstream Media Now Promoting “Gun Confiscation Orders” As Solution To Mass Shootings:

In what many saw coming a mile away in the aftermath of both the Las Vegas Massacre and the Texas Church mass shooting, liberals in the government, with the help of their mainstream media allies, are now pushing what amounts to plans for gun confiscation, outside of normal law, for Americans across the country.

The new push for gun control from the left comes courtesy of ABC News which recently published a piece promoting the use of an Extreme Risk Protection Order (ERPO) that many believe is nothing more than a thinly veiled confiscation plan that would allow a judge to “issue an ex parte order” for the direct confiscation of an American citizens firearms.

Unbelievably, the order can actually be issued without the firearm owner even being present, which would in turn end with police at the citizens door demanding he hand over his weapons or face violence from the state.

ABC’s Andy Fies, on the other hand, apparently wants Americans to see the orders differently, painting a more friendly picture of the ERPO’s while quoting two different left-wing gun control groups as seemingly unbiased experts on gun violence.
