Bihar bans Manufacture and Sale of Gutka and Paan Masala

Posted: 30 May 2012 09:09 AM PDT

Nitish Kumar led Bihar government has  imposed a ban on the manufacture, sale and storage of Gutka and Paan Masala in the state for one year, with immediate effect.

Officials in the chief minister’s office said the health department had issued a notification to this effect.

As per an order issued by the commissioner of food safety-cum-secretary, health, the manufacture, sale, distribution and storage of all the gutka and paan masala containing tobacco and nicotine would be banned in the state for the next one year under the Food Safety and Standards (Regulation) Act 2011 “in the public interest”.

The health department has asked all the district magistrates, superintendents of police and civil surgeons to enforce the ban in the areas under their jurisdiction.

The order said that the commissioner of food safety was empowered under Section 30 of the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006 to issue the ban order in this regard. The government decision to enforce the ban was welcomed by the people in general.

Bihar has become the third state after Kerala and Madhya Pradesh to ban paan and gutka products.

Earlier  such a ban was in place from 2000 to 2005, but illegal smuggling of Gutkhas from neighboring state forced Government to withdraw the ban.

Uttar Pradesh government is also planning to ban gutka and paan masala. The state's legal department has been asked to work on the proposal.

Viswanathan Anand wins World Chess Championship for 5th Time

Posted: 30 May 2012 08:45 AM PDT

Viswanathan AnandIndian Grandmaster Vishwanathan Anand has won the World Chess Championship Title for the Fifth Time consecutively at Moscow. He defeated  Israeli challenger Boris Gelfand by 2.5-1.5 in the four-match tie breaker at Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery.
The tournament went into the tie-breakers after Anand and Gelfand drew the 12th game, Monday. They were tied 6-6 after the final round.

Anand went ahead in the tie-breaker after winning the second game in 77 moves following a draw in the first. The first game ended in a draw in 33 moves. The remaining two games ended in draws.

Anand will receive $1.5 million, while challenger Gelfand bags $1 million.

Anand, 42, has held the undisputed World Chess Champion title since October 2008, when he defeated Russia’s Vladimir Kramnik in Bonn, Germany. He defended his title in 2009 by beating Bulgarian opponent Veselin Topalov 6.5-5.5 in Sofia.

Gelfand, 43, gained the right to be contender for the world title after a win last May against Russia’s Alexander Grischuk at a contenders’ tournament in Kazan, Russia.

Russian billionaire and Gelfand’s school friend Andrey Filatov paid $7 million from his own pocket to hold the event in one of the halls of the renowned State Tretyakov Gallery.
Game one was a tense start. It was a long and tough match. The match was very intense, I am relieved. I was better for most part in the second game. It was a back and forth game,” Anand told reporters after winning his third straight title at the renowned State Tretyakov Gallery.
Anand admitted that Gelfand was a tough competitor.
I am too tense to be happy, right now now I am relieved. Gelfand was playing well, the match was very even,” he said.

The 42-year-old Indian said losing the seventh game had put him on the back-foot and he felt fortunate to defend the crown.

It was a huge blow for me to lose the seventh game. It was very critical moment for me. I was extremely fortunate that I was able to come back the next day. Given that we drew our first 12 games, deciding the match by tie-break is quite a reasonable situation,” he said.

Kerala High Court Grants bail to Italian Marines

Posted: 30 May 2012 06:35 AM PDT

The Kerala High Court today granted bail to two Italian marines in the Feb 15 fishermen shooting case.

The marines, Latorre Massimillano and Salvatore Girone, were granted bail on the conditions that each of them would deposit Rs.1 crore as personal bond and provide two Indian sureties.

The court asked  the two marines to surrender their passports and asked them not to leave the area falling under the jurisdiction of Kochi police commissioner. They were told to report to the police commissioner everyday between 10-11 a.m.

Two Indian fishermen — Ajesh Binki, 25, and Gelastine, 45 — were allegedly mistaken as pirates and shot dead off Alappuzha in Kerala by the marines, who were serving as the security crew aboard Italian cargo vessel Enrica Lexie.

The two accused have been in judicial custody since Feb 20.

Last week, the two were shifted from jail to a Borstal School near Kochi after their pleas were allowed by the trial court in Kollam, some 120 km from here.

Italian Marines Latorre Massimillano and Salvatore Girone were first sentenced by a court in Kollam to 14 days' custody Feb 20 after they shot dead two Indian fishermen, Ajesh Binki, 25, and Gelastine, 45, allegedly mistaking them as pirates. The two Marines were serving as the security crew on cargo vessel Enrica Lexie Feb 15, when the shooting took place off Alappuzha in Kerala.

After being released on bail, the two are likely to move into a hotel.

The Fate of Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange

Posted: 30 May 2012 03:49 AM PDT

Julian AssangeBritish Supreme Court today ruled the extradition of  WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange  to Sweden over alleged sex crimes.

The 40-year-old Australian is accused of raping one woman and “sexually molesting and coercing” another in Stockholm in August 2010, but he claims that the allegations against him are politically motivated.

Julian Assange was first arrested in the UK in December 2010 under a European Arrest Warrant issued by Sweden. He was granted bail.

The judgment, which dismissed Assange’s appeal against extradition, was reached by a majority of five to two, the court’s president, Lord Phillips, told the hearing, as the court ruled the extradition request had been “lawfully made”, BBC reported.

According to FairTrials, a plethora of incidents can happen to Mr Assange once he reaches Sweden.  Below we present the various possibilities of his trails in Sweden as reported by FairTrials.


Could Julian Assange still avoid extradition?
He could try and take his case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, but the chances of his extradition being stopped on human rights grounds are slim.

So, what happens next?
The extradition should be carried out within 10 days of the Supreme Court ruling. The exact date will be agreed between the extradition unit at Scotland Yard and their Swedish counterparts. On the agreed day, Mr Assange will be taken to a named airport where he will be handed over to Swedish authorities who will accompany him on a flight to Sweden.

What will happen to Mr Assange when he gets to Sweden?
Mr Assange will be arrested on his arrival in Sweden and taken to a Swedish police station. Within 96 hours of being detained he will be brought to court, for a decision as to whether he should be remanded in custody until trial (see further below). This hearing is normally in private, unlike in many other countries, including the UK, where such hearings are normally in open court.
As soon as the investigation is over, a decision will be taken about whether to formally charge him. Swedish law requires a person to be physically present before charges can be laid, so this can only happen once Mr Assange is on Swedish territory. Alternatively, prosecutors may decide not to charge Mr Assange and to release him.
He was on bail here – is the system the same in Sweden?
Mr Assange has been on bail in the UK and has had to stay at an agreed address (a house in Suffolk owned by a friend), report daily to local police and wear an electronic tag, but has had free access to the internet, telephone and visitors. In the UK, there is a presumption in favour of bail unless the prosecution can show that there is a need for the person to be held on remand.
The system in Sweden is very different. Effectively, the presumption is in favour of detention and restrictions usually apply to the person's activities and contact with the outside world

Do people ever get bail in Sweden?
Hardly ever, especially if they are not Swedish nationals or residents. Sweden does have alternatives to custody, including travel bans and an obligation to report to a police station, but these are only used for vulnerable people (including minors) or in cases where the alleged offence is not punishable by a prison sentence. This might explain why, in 2010/2011, 24% of the total prison population in Sweden was awaiting trial, compared to 10% in England and Wales.

Does this mean Julian Assange won't get bail?
His chances of doing so are slim. The alleged offences are rape (as defined under Swedish law), unlawful coercion and two cases of sexual molestation. All of these offences carry a maximum sentence of more than one year in prison under Swedish law. Coupled with the fact that he is not a Swedish national or resident, Julian Assange is unlikely to get bail in Sweden. This is despite the fact that he has observed all his bail conditions in the UK for over a year.
What sort of conditions could he be held in pre-trial?
Mr Assange could be held in isolation and barred from communicating with anyone other than his lawyers. He may be subjected to a range of restrictions such as:


  • isolation: meaning that he is held in his cell for up to 23 hours a day;
  • no visits from anyone other than his lawyer or a priest;
  • restrictions on phone calls and written correspondence;
  • limited contact with other detainees; and
  • lack of access to newspapers, radio and television.

There has been international criticism of these conditions. The Council of Europe has reported ongoing concerns about remand conditions in Sweden and that many people feel that they are prevented from contacting family members to 'break' them. The US State Department has also noted that people are often subject to extended isolation and severe restriction on their activities whilst awaiting trial.
How likely is he to have these restrictions imposed on him?

The above restrictions are only meant to be used if the Swedish court believes the suspect will contact associates who might tamper with evidence or impede the investigation. Given that the evidence in Mr Assange's case has been secured, there should be no such risk.

In practice, however, these restrictions are routinely imposed without any clear or transparent reasons given for them. In the Stockholm prison of Kronoberg, for example, they apply to around 70% of remand prisoners.

Could he appeal against these restrictions?
It is possible to appeal to the court against restrictions imposed. However, this right of appeal was only introduced in April 2011 and it is rarely used.
How long could Mr Assange be held for before trial?
There is no maximum period of pre-trial detention in Sweden, though in practice average periods are short compared to many EU countries. Guidelines suggest that an individual cannot be held for longer than the length of sentence they are likely to receive. Until it is known exactly what charges, if any, Mr Assange will face, it is difficult to know what this period would be in his case.

After charge, detention periods are in practice fairly short due to a legal requirement that a trial must be held within two weeks of charge (though this can be extended if the prosecution require more time). However, there is no time limit in which the charges themselves must be brought.
Is there a regular review of detention by the court?
Before the suspect is charged, the court must hold a hearing to review the decision to detain every 14 days. However, the process has been criticised by defence lawyers as a rubber-stamping exercise because the court does not require the prosecution to give evidence of why detention is necessary and decisions to continue holding the person in custody are not taken in open court.
How easy would it be for Mr Assange to prepare his defence from behind bars?
Mr Assange should have unrestricted access to his lawyer: something that is not guaranteed in many other EU countries. However, he will not be able to see any evidence in the case against him until the investigation has formally closed. Swedish law usually requires a trial to be held within two weeks of the closing of an investigation, so this gives him very little time to go through the evidence and prepare his defence, unless the court agrees to an extension of time for the trial date.

IIT Professors feel cheated with new pattern of IIT JEE

Posted: 30 May 2012 03:23 AM PDT

Even as the government has decided to go ahead with a new pattern for the joint entrance exam for the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT-JEE), the teachers and alumni of the IITs are not happy, some even planning to approach the courts.

According to sources, as many as five out of seven senates of the IITs had expressed opposition to the idea but the government chose to proceed regardless.

President of IIT Delhi Alumni Association (IITDAA) Somnath Bharti said the step diluted the vision of the country’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru about the IITs, and added that the association may go to court to get a stay on the government decision “if required”.

“This is dilution of the IIT envisioned by Pt. Nehru,” said Bharti.

“We will have a meeting soon and, if required, we will approach the court,” Bharti, who is also a Supreme Court advocate and a former member of IIT Delhi senate, told IANS.

He added that they felt cheated as the HRD minister had assured them that the government would not proceed with any change if there is dissent. According to sources, except for the senates of IIT Roorkee and Chennai, all others were adverse to the proposal.

The new pattern of engineering entrance to be implemented from 2013 will have single engineering entrance for the IITs, National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) and other Central Educational Institutions, merging the JEE and AIEEE (all-India engineering entrance examination).

The exam will have two papers, one ‘main’ and the other ‘advance’ entrance. The final marks will be calculated on the basis of the scores of these two exams, along with a fixed “weightage”, or percentage, from the marks scored in the school board exam.

However, as scores vary in different school boards, the Class 12 board marks will first be “normalised”, which is a process of equalising marks from different state and central boards.

Bharti, however, was of the view that the formula to normalise marks from different boards was faulty and it would only bring loss to students.

“Normalising scores is absolutely not possible. There have been reports from various agencies, including from the computer science department of IIT Delhi which says the formula is faulty and would rather do injustice,” he said.

A senior professor from IIT Delhi, who did not wish to be named, echoed Bharti’s views saying that the procedure has several loop holes.

“This pattern cannot stop coaching institutions, because the problem is lack of proper training in school. Students will keep going to coaching centres till the government does something about quality of education in schools,” he said.

The professor also expressed apprehensions about the step being more political than beneficial to students.

“I wonder if the step is for the benefit of students, or politically motivated to show the government is working,” he added.

The government has announced that the new pattern would come into force in 2013, and the next Lok Sabha elections are scheduled in 2014.

Anand Kumar, the founder of Super 30 — a one-of-its-kind IIT entrance coaching institution for underprivileged students, said the new common admission examination would further complicate the problem and make it more difficult for students, especially those studying in rural areas with poor school infrastructure.

“This new process will be cumbersome, and will add to the confusion and pressure on the students,” Kumar told IANS.

Kumar also said that the new pattern of ‘main’ and ‘advance’ entrance exams on the same day will add to the psychological burden on the students and also give the exam an “elitist” look as it may end up “excluding rural students”.

Vice president at IIT-JEE coaching centre TIME institute Ajay Antony, however, said the new pattern will not make much difference and it is like old wine in a new bottle. 

“All the difference is that they will now include board exam marks. Other than that, it is the same entrance exam if you see it closely,” said Antony.
