Fear that appeal court will allow imprisonment to silence Karakalpakstan’s last independent voice

first_imgNews October 15, 2020 Find out more Uzbek blogger facing possible 10-year jail term November 18, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Fear that appeal court will allow imprisonment to silence Karakalpakstan’s last independent voice New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council There is sadly little chance that journalist and human rights activist Solidzhon Abdurakhmanov will be cleared when the supreme court of the western autonomous republic of Karakalpakstan tomorrow hears his appeal against his 10 October conviction on a trumped-up drug trafficking charge, for which he received a 10-year prison sentence.Aged 58 and a contributor to many independent media and NGOs, Abdurakhmanov has been detained since 7 June. “In view of the incoherence of the prosecution case and the failure to establish Abdurakhmanov’s guilt, the judicial authorities should just dismiss the case and thereby show they refuse to compromise their integrity by serving as a tool for retaliating against journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Karakalpakstan’s last independent voice must not be silenced by imprisonment.”The press freedom organisation added: “If the court confirms the conviction, we think the European Union will have to ask itself whether the partial lifting of sanctions against Uzbekistan’s leaders, adopted on 13 October, is justified.”The poorly-contrived nature of the case against Abdurakhmanov is evidenced by the fact that the initial charge of “consuming drugs with no intention of reselling them,” was changed after two medical tests showed that he was not a drug user. He was then charged under article 25-273 paragraph 5 of the criminal code with “trafficking in drugs with the intention of reselling them.”The police claim that 114 grams of marijuana and 5 grams of opium were found hidden in the boot of Abdurakhmanov’s car after he was stopped by traffic police in Nukus, the republic’s capital, on 7 June for a “routine” check of documents. The traffic police called for reinforcements, who came with sniffer dogs, and it was then that the drugs were supposedly found although the dogs showed no sign of detecting anything.The police filmed the entire process of Abdurakhmanov’s arrest and the search of his car with a digital video camera. During the trial, Abdurakhmanov’s lawyer repeatedly requested a screening of the video but the prosecution kept refusing to show it or allow it to be admitted as evidence. At the end of the trial, the prosecution did finally produce two video cassettes but they did not show the dogs carrying out their inspection or the discovery of the drugs. According to Abdurakhmanov’s lawyer, around 40 minutes are missing from the videos. All this reinforces the hypothesis that the police check was planned rather than routine, and the question remains: why did the prosecution refuse to screen the entire video?

On Wednesday, health officials said 393 Pasadena residents have now tested positive for the virus.The number comes as county officials continue to push for more testing centers in minority communities.The new number came as the nation marked 60,000 deaths well ahead of August. Earlier this month, models said the national death toll would reach 64,000 fatalities in August.Meanwhile, media officials were pushing an FDA emergency approval of Remdesivir, a drug that has shown some improvement in some patients.More than 1 million Americans have tested positive for the virus since the first U.S. case was confirmed on Jan. 21.The University of Washington model used by the White House currently projects 72,860 domestic deaths by Aug. 4, with a range of 57,453 to 121,468, after adjusting its projections earlier this week.Meanwhile, the push for testing in minority areas continues in LA County.A testing center was opened in Compton earlier this week.Of the 977 people who died in LA County for whom ethnic data was available, 38 percent were Latinx, 28 percent were white, 18 percent were Asian, 13 percent were black and 1 percent were Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.“Rates of COVID-19 confirmed cases and deaths are extremely high among Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders,” said Dr. Barbara Ferrer, county health director. “And they’re also higher among African-Americans and Latinx than among whites and Asians … Rates of cases and death are also higher among people with less income, while the rate of testing increases as income increases. these trends are troubling and of great concern and they suggest that more affluent residents may have better access to COVID-19 testing and to health treatment services, even as the rates of infection appear to be higher among lower-income communities and many communities of color,” she said. “These findings highlight the urgent need for more intensive efforts to expand access to culturally competent testing treatment and prevention strategies in the African-American, Latinx and Native American and Pacific Islander communities, as well as in our lower resourced neighborhoods.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Which Mortgage Loans Do Service Members Prefer?

Share Save Tagged with: Servicemembers va loans The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released it’s latest quarterly consumer credit trends report on Friday, which focused on mortgages made to first-time homebuying service members. The data for the report came from the Bureau’s Consumer Credit Panel (CCP) providing a unique look at the mortgage choices and outcomes between 2006 and 2016. Overall, the report showed that service members chose more VA mortgages than conventional mortgages, and the increase was equal among those with prime or nonprime credit scores.When buying a house, service members have the option of taking out a home loan guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), or a conventional loan which is regulated by a different government agency, such as the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) or U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The two differ in many ways such as VA home loans allow a purchase with no down payment and without mortgage insurance and may provide unique loan-servicing protections.  The report indicated that first-time homebuying service members using VA mortgages dramatically increased from 30 percent before 2007 to 63 percent in 2009. Among non-service member first-time homebuyers there was an equal increase in the use of FHA and USDA mortgages. However, non-service members’ reliance on FHA/USDA mortgages declined after 2009, while service members’ reliance on VA loans continued to increase up to 78 percent by 2016. Part of the reason for the shift towards VA loans was due to a widespread shift away from conventional to government-guaranteed mortgages between 2006 and 2009 for both servicemembers and non-service members. Conventional mortgages were about 60 percent of loans with first-time homebuying service members in 2006 and 2007, but declined to 13 percent by 2016, while with non-service members it fell from almost 90 percent before 2008 to 41 percent in 2009, and the combined share of FHA and USDA mortgages increased accordingly.Read the full report here Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Stephanie Bacot is an experienced multimedia writer having created content for print, web, television, and more.
