Côte dIvoire UN mission highlights next steps to longawaited elections

4 March 2010The United Nations mission in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) is closely monitoring efforts to establish a government – including an independent electoral commission – and to resume plans for long-awaited elections in the West African country, where a political crisis following the dissolution of the government last month sparked deadly street protests. At a press conference today in Zouan Hounien, 750 kilometres outside Abidjan, UNOCI Spokesperson Hamadoun Toure outlined the remaining tasks in the electoral process that has been repeatedly derailed since 2005 when presidential polls were originally scheduled. The first task was the resumption of the appeals process on registration on the provisional electoral list throughout the country, Mr. Toure said about the remaining challenges. “The achievement of this operation will lead to the second crucial stage which is the production of the definitive electoral list,” which will be followed by the production and distribution of identity and voters’ cards, Mr. Toure added.The presidential polls will go a long way to ending years of instability and stalemate following a civil war that divided the country into a rebel-held north and Government-controlled south in 2002.Mr. Toure appealed for commitment to ensure that “sensitive phases of the electoral process take place in a calm atmosphere and in accordance with the agreed rules.” UNOCI will continue to provide various forms of support to ensure that the tasks are carried out and open, fair, free and transparent elections are successfully organized, he added.Since the latest political crisis erupted, UN officials, particularly the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Côte d’Ivoire and head of UNOCI, Y. J. Choi, have been meeting with key actors to keep the electoral process moving. read more

Proposal to pipe oil sands crude to Quebec refineries would barely benefit

MONTREAL — A new report says proposals to pipe oil sands crude to Quebec refineries would only deliver negligible economic benefits to the province.An economist who co-authored the study says job creation and spinoffs from several active pipeline-and-processing proposals would be insignificant to Quebec’s overall economy.At the same time, Brigid Rowan says a pipeline accident could cost lives and put taxpayers on the hook for billions of dollars — particularly if a spill takes place in an urban area like Toronto or Montreal.The report was conducted by California-based consulting firm The Goodman Group Ltd. at the request of the Greenpeace and Equiterre environmental organizations.The study examined possible economic advantages of the Energy East pipeline project by TransCanada Corp., a plan by Suncor Energy Inc. to enable its Montreal refinery to process thick oil sands bitumen and the Line 9 reversal by Enbridge.Rowan argues that even if all of these projects moved forward, they would generate few long-term jobs in Quebec.She also says while refiners would likely benefit from the lower-priced crude, the savings probably wouldn’t be passed on to consumers at the pump.Earlier this year, the National Energy Board approved Enbridge’s controversial plan to reverse the flow and increase the capacity of Line 9, a project that would transport crude eastward to refineries in Ontario and Montreal.The board said its decision would allow Enbridge to “react to market forces and provide benefits to Canadians, while at the same time implementing the project in a safe and environmentally sensitive manner.”The federal government welcomed the decision, saying the project would protect high-quality refining jobs in Quebec, open new markets for oil producers in Western Canada and replace more-expensive foreign crude.Opponents of the Line 9 project often highlight Enbridge’s 2010 spill in Michigan, where 20,000 barrels of crude leaked into the Kalamazoo River. read more

US terminates antidumping probe on Sri Lankan rubber products

The US announced investigations on 21 February after a US manufacturer of rubber bands filled an anti-dumping and countervailing duty petition at the US Department of Commerce (USDOC) and US International Trade Commission (USITC) alleging that producers and exporters of rubber bands in Sri Lanka, Thailand and China are selling their products in the US market at less than normal value (dumping) and also, they have benefited from subsidies provided by respective Governments. The petitioner further alleged that these imports cause material injury or threaten material injury to the domestic rubber industry of the United States and requested the USDOC for an investigation aiming at imposition of anti-dumping / countervailing duty on imports as per the Anti-dumping and countervailing Duty Laws of the United States. On 21 February 2018, the US announced the initiation of new anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations to determine whether rubber bands from China, Sri Lanka, and Thailand were being dumped in the United States or if producers in China, Sri Lanka, and Thailand are receiving unfair subsidies. ITCUS’ Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson and Meredith M. Broadbent made a finding of negligibility with respect to Sri Lanka, but voted affirmative for investigations with respect to China and Thailand. Based on the petition, the USDOC and USITC initiated parallel anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of Rubber Bands from Sri Lanka, Thailand and China on 21st February 2018.The Department of Commerce of Sri Lanka in collaboration with the Attorney General’s Department and the affected exporters in Sri Lanka made number of submissions to the US Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission in the preliminary investigation stage rebutting the petitioner’s claims.The main argument of the Sri Lankan was that Sri Lanka’s value and volume of export of rubber bands (the petitioned merchandise) to the US falls below the minimum threshold to initiate an anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigation as specified in the WTO Agreements. Accordingly, the ITC in the preliminary based investigation, has now determined that imports from Sri Lanka of the product was negligible in value terms. (Colombo Gazette) The United States has terminated the anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of rubber products from Sri Lanka, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce said.The Ministry of Industry and Commerce said that the decision to terminate anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of rubber products from Sri Lanka was taken at a vote held at the International Trade Commission (ITC) in the US. read more

Applications for US unemployment aid mostly unchanged at 326000 total recipients fall

by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Jan 23, 2014 6:37 am MDT Applications for US unemployment aid mostly unchanged at 326,000; total recipients fall In this Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, photo, job seekers sign in before meeting prospective employers during a career fair at a hotel in Dallas. The Labor Department releases weekly jobless claims, on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014. (AP Photo/LM Otero) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits ticked up 1,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 326,000, a level consistent with steady job gains.The Labor Department says the four-week average, a less volatile measure, fell for the third straight week to 331,500. Both figures are close to pre-recession levels and suggest that companies are laying off few workers.One sour note in the report: Nearly 1.4 million people who have been unemployed longer than six months lost benefits in the week that ended Jan. 4, the latest period for which figures are available. That’s because an emergency program that provided extended benefits expired Dec. 28.The number of recipients fell to 3.7 million from 4.7 million in the previous week. About 300,000 people began receiving unemployment benefits in the week ended Jan. 4.The total number of beneficiaries was already falling steadily even before the cutoff: More than 5.6 million people were receiving aid a year ago.President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats pushed to extend the emergency program for another three months. But they couldn’t reach agreement with Republicans, who wanted to cut spending to offset the $6 billion estimated cost. The extended benefits had been available since 2008.The program provided up to 47 extra weeks of aid, paid for by the federal government. It offered payments averaging $256 a week to people who had exhausted their state benefits, which typically last for six months.Economists predict that the expired benefits will cause the unemployment rate to fall by as much as a quarter of percentage point in early 2014. The decrease will likely happen because many of the former recipients will give up on their job searches, which are required in order to receive benefits.As a result, they will no longer be counted as unemployed. The government counts people as unemployed only if they are looking for work.The unemployment rate fell last month to 6.7 per cent from 7 per cent. Much that decrease came from 347,000 unemployed workers leaving the workforce. A mere 74,000 jobs were created in December, after average monthly gains of 214,000 new jobs in the previous four months.There are signs that economic growth is accelerating. Consumer confidence and retail spending have picked up in the October-December quarter. Orders to U.S. manufacturers rose in November, a sign that businesses are investing more on factory-made items such as machinery, computers and electrical goods. Factory output rose for a fifth straight month in December.The economy is still far from healthy. Income rose at a slower pace than spending last month, which means Americans are spending more but saving less. And sales of existing homes have dropped for three straight months, held back by higher prices and mortgage rates.Still, many economists have become more optimistic about the October-December quarter. Several are predicting a solid annual growth rate of 3 per cent or more. That’s up from estimates a month ago of as low as 1.5 per cent. read more

BMA accused of toothless omnishambles over strike tactics

first_imgSenior doctors also gave their support to the decision, which followed repeated warnings from senior officials and medics about the risks such action could cause.But hundreds of junior doctors have turned on the union, with many threatening to resign their membership and others calling on union chiefs to step down.On doctors’ social media forums, some medics accused the BMA of a “betrayal” of junior doctors for suddenly abandoning the strikes just 10 days before the walkouts were due to begin.Others criticised the union for ever contemplating such extreme measures without balloting members to see if they were prepared to take part in such actions. protesting doctor  Yesterday her deputy, Dr Pete Campbell, said the committee was unable to continue with a plan of action “which all of the feedback said was wrong”.“The feedback from junior doctors and our colleagues showed their concerns about patient safety and proportionality of the plan,” he wrote in a forum for junior doctors, which acknowledged widespread “anger and fear”.Fellow committee member Dr Bala Karunakaran said the decision followed “robust agonising.”He said: “We had a lot of evidence presented to us. We had surveys of members. We had feedback from LNC [local negotiating committee] reps who had previously organised and led the local pickets. We had public opinion polls as well as feedback from public and patients,” he wrote.Several doctors accused the union of not being transparent about its decisions. Dr Rishi Dhir, an orthopaedic registrar who wanted the strikes to go ahead, said union members had not been given information to justify the chance of stance.The doctor, part of a small pressure group called the Junior Doctors Alliance, said: “We’re calling on the BMA to be more transparent in its decisions and accountable to around 100,000 members, who each pay £400 a year in subscription fees.” The British Medical Association is facing a backlash from furious junior doctors over its decision to scrap a series of crippling strikes.Angry medics who backed five day walkouts have turned on the union, calling it “toothless” and accusing it of presiding over an “omnishambles” in its handling of the long-running industrial dispute.The union’s junior doctors committee (JDC) on Sunday began crisis talks to attempt to plan new forms of protests against a new contract.It followed the suspension of strikes on Saturday night, after an all-day meeting of the committee.Medics at the meeting said they had scrutinised public opinion polling, and surveys of junior doctors, before coming to the conclusion that the strikes should be stopped.The committee, led by Dr Ellen McCourt, has said it will instead plan “alternative forms of resistance”, but refused to say what such protests could involve. And several attacked the union for repeated changes of strategy, one calling the BMA “a laughing stock” while others said it was attempting to humiliate its members by endlessly changing tack.  “What annoys me is not the decision but the clear lack of a plan,” wrote one. “Seems like a bunch of kids trying to play politics with grown ups.”Plans for four five-day strikes from September to Christmas were drawn up by Dr McCourt in August, even though she had previously described the contract as “safe” and “fair”.The first strike, which was due to take place earlier this month, had already been axed after a major backlash about the safety risks of the action.

Zika virus FDA recommends ban on blood collections from affected areas

first_imgThe US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recommended that blood no longer be collected from regions where the Zika virus is circulating, and that blood needed for transfusions be obtained from areas of the United States without active transmission. The agency said blood banks can continue collecting and preparing platelets and plasma if an FDA-approved pathogen-reduction technology is used. Current pathogen-reduction technology is not approved to treat whole red blood.The FDA also formally endorsed recommendations made by the American Association of Blood Banks that donors at risk for Zika virus be deferred from donating blood for weeks. Those people include those who have had symptoms suggestive of Zika virus during the previous four weeks, those who have had sexual contact with a person who has travelled to, or resided in, an area with active Zika virus transmission during the prior three months, and those who have travelled to areas with active transmission of Zika during the past four weeks.While there have been no reports of Zika entering the US blood supply, the risk of blood transmission is considered likely based on scientific evidence of how Zika and similar viruses spread, the agency said. The FDA issued these guidelines to ensure that blood banks defer blood donations, since about four out of five of those infected do not show symptoms.last_img read more

Narayana Murthy again publicly criticises Infosys board says he is disappointed

first_imgInfosys co-founder N R Narayana MurthyREUTERS/Bobby YipInfosys co-founder Narayana Murthy is back in news, and for the same old reason. The 71-year-old co-founder has hit back at the company board again, saying that he was “disappointed”.Murthy highlighted that the board has still not addressed questions that he raised in August about poor governance and excessive severance payments.This comes when the company is proactively looking to hire a chief executive officer (CEO) to replace Vishal Sikka after his unceremonious ouster in mid-August.Sikka stepped aside citing criticism from the co-founders over strategy and compensation.”I cannot carry out my job as CEO and continue to create value, while also constantly defending against unrelenting, baseless/malicious and increasingly personal attacks,” Sikka had written after resigning.The fresh clash between Murthy and the company board could hamper the board’s efforts to recruit a new leader as the CEO of India’s second-largest software exporter.”I stand by every question on poor governance raised in my speech to Infosys investors dated 29 August 2017. The fact remains that none of these questions have been answered by the Infosys board with the transparency it deserves. I am disappointed,” Murthy wrote in the statement.Earlier, the Bengaluru-based company’s founders had questioned Sikka’s compensation, which totalled Rs 48.7 crore. They have also criticised severance payments to other executives.After Sikka’s exist, the company’s board has witnessed a rejig, and another co-founder, Nandan Nilekani, made a comeback after eight years as the non-executive chairman to chair the board.”We are concerned this continued meddling even after the management/board refresh will do collateral damage to Infosys’ image in the on-going CEO search. The situation is back to square one with [Murthy] repeatedly questioning/undermining decisions of the board,” Mint quoted Sudheer Guntupalli, an analyst with Ambit Capital, as saying.Murthy had earlier questioned Sikka over a 2015 acquisition of Israeli automation-tech company Panaya. A whistleblower had subsequently written to the company saying that the deal was overpricedAfter Nilekani took charge on August 25, he had said in the first meeting that the non-executive chairman would get a full briefing on these investigations and the appropriate course of action would then be decided.But, while announcing the quarterly result on Tuesday, Nilekani rejected any review of the investigations into various allegations of wrongdoing at the top management level.”I believe all stakeholders acted out of a strong passion for Infosys, wanting what they believed to be the best for the company and to see it succeed. In light of my review of these matters, I am fully persuaded, as is the entire board, that the conclusions of the independent investigations are correct. This board and I are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and will deal promptly and decisively with any governance issues should they ever come up in the future,” Nilekani said in a statement.

PS4 owners are having difficulty connecting to the PlayStation Network

first_imgA few days ago Jack Tretton, president of Sony, commented that the company wasn’t at all concerned about how popular the PS4 was going to be on launch today. In fact, they are even expecting 3 million sales before 2013 was over. But they were keeping a close eye on the PlayStation Network due to the demand a console launch would place on it.Sure enough, the need to connect your PS4 to PSN in order to get that 308MB day one patch is taking its toll, and gamers are reporting connection issues. Sony has confirmed that an “extremely high volume” of traffic is causing problems and that gamers should be patient.If you are one of those gamers, then you are probably seeing the error codes E-80E80034 or NW-31453-6, which relate to a lost network connection. But don’t despair, although the connection error will stop you playing or downloading games online for now, it won’t stop you getting the day one patch. That’s because Sony allows you to download it to a USB stick instead and install the update manually without PSN being involved.The connection loss is going to be a short term problem, and Sony is most likely adding extra capacity to its network as we speak. Even if that isn’t happening, the rush to update the PS4 will drop off as the day and weekend progress. The next burst of very high traffic will come in two weeks when the console launches across Europe.last_img read more

Report UK Airports Invest Millions in AntiDrone Tech

first_img UPS Wants to Bring Drone Deliveries to U.S. HospitalsWatch: Drone Captures Great White Sharks Interacting Off Cape Cod (1/2) It is totally unacceptable to fly drones close to airports and anyone flouting the rules can face severe penalties including imprisonment. Anyone operating a drone must do so responsibly and observe all relevant rules and regulations…#Gatwick #Gatwick_Airport— UK Civil Aviation Authority (@UK_CAA) December 20, 2018Gatwick airports did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.More on Geek.com:Baby Receives World’s First Drone-Delivered VaccineWatch: Drone Helps Rescue Deer From Frozen LakeThis Horror Movie is About a Possessed Killer DroneEditor’s note: This article was updated at 11:15 a.m. ET with comment from Heathrow Airport. Heathrow and Gatwick airports are stocking up on anti-drone equipment, according to The Guardian.The UK’s busiest airfields have invested millions of pounds in military-grade drone-fighting gear after a UAV disruption grounded some 1,000 flights in and out of Gatwick last month.With a little help from the British Armed Forces (and possibly the Israeli-developed Drone Dome counter-unmanned aircraft system [C-UAS]), Gatwick officials were able to eliminate the threat and reopen its runways in time for Christmas.There is no word yet on exactly what equipment has been installed in England since then; a spokeswoman told The Guardian that airport owners instituted a similar before the end of the year.Other UK airports, the newspaper said, are expected to announce “significant investment” in anti-drone practices, though not all at the same scale as the London hubs.The dramatic-sounding Drone Dome can track devices as far as six miles away. Some models (though not the one reportedly used by the UK military) also destroy offending drones with a laser beam.“The safety of our passengers and colleagues remains our top priority. Working closely with relevant authorities including the [Metropolitan] Police, we are constantly looking at the best technologies that help remove the threat of drones,” a spokeswoman for Heathrow told Geek.com.On the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 19, Gatwick shut down operations following reports of drones flying over the airfield. The runway briefly reopened at 3 a.m. the next morning, but closed 45 minutes later after another sighting.Reports continued trickling in through the day on Thursday, forcing Gatwick to remain closed and reroute inbound flights to alternative airports as far away as Amsterdam and Paris.In the UK, it is illegal to fly a drone within 1 km (0.62 miles) of an airport or airfield boundary, and could cost the operator five years in prison.center_img Stay on targetlast_img read more

Forget tents and go glamping in these camping pods

first_imgThere’s no better way to get back to basics and really unwind than camping. But sometimes you do crave a fresh cup of coffee in the morning or a heater when it gets a bit chilly. These camping pods sort all that and more.We went to the Brighton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site to try one for the weekend – and to make the most of Britain’s gay seaside capital.Glamping in a podIf you can imagine a tent designed by a hobbit, this is it.About the size of a beach hut, the pods have a small outdoor terrace with a little shelter from any rain. Double-glazed French doors lead into the living and sleeping space.Inside, they are really spacious, far bigger than a tent. And, unlike a tent, there’s no chance of drips on your head or leaks under your bed.There’s a wardrobe space to hang clothes, a waste bin and and a kettle. We bought mugs with us. There’s a light (no torches required) and even a heater and insulation, so the pod is always cosy.Two seats at the back of the pod which fold out into a comfortable double bed. We took sleeping bags, but we could just as easily have bought a sheet and quilt. You’ll also need to bring towels. The pod doesn’t have running water. But the on-site bathroom facilities are excellent – modern, spotlessly clean and with powerful hot showers.All in all, this is not camping, it’s glamping. And refreshing to take a camping trip without have too much to pack.Relax and unwindWe decided to really pamper ourselves and bought cheese from London’s food-heaven, Borough Market, a bottle of red and a proper baguette with us. GAYSTARNEWS- If you want the fun and relaxation of camping – but lack the gear or faith in Britain’s weather – check out these cute camping pods. We sat on our little terrace – comfy camping chairs and table provided in the pod – and watched the sun go down. What better way to end a day?The Brighton site is very friendly. Everybody smiles and says hello. And nobody blinked about us being a gay couple.Explore Brighton and the beautiful South DownsThe Brighton Caravan and Motorhome Club Site is on the edge of the South Downs National Park. But it’s only two miles from the center of one of Britain’s most vibrant LGBTI-friendly cities. So that’s a short taxi ride – or energetic walk.The closest supermarket is at Brighton Marina, which also boasts a range of (chain) restaurants, bars and a cinema. It’s a nice place to stroll around and stare at the yachts. You can also walk along the seafront into town. Or if you are a train spotter at heart, take the historic Volks Railway to Brighton’s famous Pier.Once you’re in town, Brighton has plenty to do. Discover quirky and boutique shops in the Lanes, step back into Regency England in the camp Royal Pavilion, or enjoy the LGBTI area of Kemptown. And when you’re exhausted, just sunbathe on the beach.If you’ve got a car, the campsite is a great base to explore the South Downs. Check out the romantic fortress of Arundel Castle or the historic town of Lewes.Where to find camping podsThere are two pods at the campsite in Brighton. And they’ve proved a hit, so more are planned in future.You can also book camping pods at other Caravan and Motorhome Club Sites – Abbey Wood in London and Coniston Park Coppice in Cumbria.The prices are £45 per pod, per night, from 3 January to 15 March and £50 a night the rest of the year. They can provide an extra camp bed if needed.You can book pods, and all other caravan and tent pitches all around the country here.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…center_img eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) What it’s really like to run a clothing-optional gay resort in Palm SpringsThis film sums up the hidden meaning of Grindr messages everywhereThis Florida conservative city will host its very first Pride march this fallRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/camping-pods/last_img read more

It appears that the combination of these factors on the same day significantly increases the risk,” said lead author Marco Ranucci, M.D.AKI after cardiac surgery is a severe complication that is associated with a high risk of mortality. AKI comprises three stages of increasing severity from stage 1 to stage 3.The researchers observed a significantly higher rate of AKI stage 1 in patients operated on the same day as angiography versus patients operated on 3 days later (18.5 percent vs. 13.5 percent, respectively). Additionally, the incidence of AKI stage 2 or 3 was significantly higher (7.8 percent) in patients who were operated on the same day as angiography than in patients operated on 1 day or 3 days after angiography (4.4 percent and 3.9 percent, respectively).Overall, surgery on the same day as angiography was significantly associated with AKI stage 2 or 3 and any AKI, and an institutional policy limiting the practice of surgery on the same day as angiography resulted in a significant decrease in AKI stage 1 (30 percent) and a significant decrease of any AKI (42 percent).“We recommend that angiography on the same day as surgery should be avoided or at least limited to low-risk cases. In patients at high risk for AKI, such as elderly patients or patients with pre-existing renal dysfunction, surgery should be planned at least 24 hours after angiography,” Ranucci concludes. “Since no randomized controlled trials are possible in this area, recently released guidelines offer the best possible level of evidence.”Hospital policy can reduce risk of kidney injuryIn an invited commentary in the same issue, Jeremiah R. Brown, Ph.D., MS, an assistant professor at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and clinical practice at the Geisel School of Medicine in Hanover, N.H., wrote that the results from Ranucci and colleagues presents a convincing case for setting hospital policy to limit the use of same-day cardiac catheterization for non-emergent cardiac surgery.Brown said that Ranucci and his colleagues demonstrated great success in improving important patient outcomes and quality of care with a simple institutional policy change to eliminate the practice of same-day cardiac catheterization for non-emergent cardiac surgery.In the meantime, Brown recommended that patients work with their physicians to reduce risk of kidney injury by planning to complete a cardiac catheterization ahead of time: “Talk with your surgeon about having a diagnostic angiography at least two days ahead of planned cardiac surgery. There are rare circumstances for invasive diagnostic tests to be performed on the same day for non-emergent cardiac surgery. Hospital policies can be implemented to reduce the practice of same-day catheterization for cardiac surgery and minimize kidney injury,” said Brown FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Contrast Media | July 18, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How To Manage Risk in the MR Suite Macrocyclic contrast agents have the best safety profile of all the magnetic resonance (MR) contrast media that are n read more News | February 07, 2013 Same-Day Angiography, Cardiac Surgery Confirmed as Risk for Kidney Injury News | CT Angiography (CTA) | July 11, 2019 Mednax National Cardiac Centers of Excellence Program Highlighted at SCCT 2019 Mednax Inc. and Mednax Radiology Solutions announced that Chief Medical Officer Ricardo C.

Syria in the fight against the Assad government by the US and its allies… The ISIS rose as a military force in the Syrian civil war and has now crossed back into Iraq” an editorial in the latest issue has said Accusing the US of being “caught in a web of contradictions of its own making” it writes: “The US military interventions to outset the secular Arab governments first in Iraq and later in Libya have been accomplished by financing and supporting the Islamist forces and sectarian militias” Emphasising that the US must “stop this military intervention in Iraq” the editorial concludes that the “ISIS can be isolated and checked only by the forces of secular nationalism” New government The CPI’s New Age has accused the government of representing the “combination of corporate right reactionary ideology and the worst forms of communalism” “The Narendra Modi government has within two months bared its true intentions It has shamelessly pushed through the economic policies that were also implemented by the previous regime… Similarly the government is surrendering to pressures from multinationals whose cause is being promoted by Washington whose top bureaucrats and politicians have become most frequent visitors to New Delhi” an editorial alleges “As the external policies of the country are an extension of the domestic particularly economic policies there is reflection of this in the so-called ‘neutrality’ of the Modi sarkar over the brutal and inhuman attack by Israel on Gaza While the world has denounced the brutality and stark violation of human rights by aggressive

protection law the Supreme Court seems to be pulling in a contrary direction It has asked Prashant Bhushan appearing on behalf of the Centre for Public Interest Litigation to share under sealed cover the source of the photocopy of the damaging visitors book at the residence of CBI chief Ranjit Sinha The action reopens a debate over source protection which began over 100 years ago with the sedition trial of Sri Aurobindo when Bipin Chandra Pal was jailed for refusing to confirm that Aurobindo had written an anonymous tract that he published Of course whistleblower protection can never be absolute but balanced against the public and the national interest But how would establishing the source advance the case against Sinha who has denied the authenticity of the document For he has done this rather erratically with the percentage of veracity seesawing like a market index Besides if documentary authenticity is the moot issue there are technical means to appraise it The handwriting of security officers at Sinha’s residence can be analysed and matched with the visitors book Besides it is trivial to check the cellphone records of visitors in the book to see if they were in the vicinity at the times noted Questions about sources would not have been asked if India had a whistleblower law In the absence of a legal guarantee of safety and privacy the court should not ask for sources to be revealed especially when the cases at stake involve powerful people in politics and business It should rather follow convention and exhaust all other options before taking the extreme step Besides Sinha has not denied meeting persons involved in the 2G and coal allocation cases apparently in order to verify reports filed by his own agency In that case the central question is not the authenticity of the visitors book but the propriety of the CBI chief Should government officials meet in their private capacity persons whose fortunes they can influence in their official capacity
