A former Libyan Islamist commander who says he suffered years of torture by Muammar Gaddafi’s henchmen after British and US spies handed him over to Libya appealed on Monday against a ruling blocking legal action against the British government, Reuters report. Abdel Hakim Belhadj, a rebel leader who helped topple Gaddafi in 2011 and is now leader of the Libyan al-Watan Party, says he and his pregnant wife Fatima were abducted by US CIA agents in Thailand in 2004 and then illegally transferred to Tripoli with the help of British spies. Two years ago, he began legal action against former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, Britain’s MI5 and MI6 spy agencies, a former intelligence chief, and relevant government departments. But in December, a High Court judge ruled that because of the “act of state doctrine”, English courts could not hear the case as allegations about Belhadj’s abduction and rendition involved other countries, most notably the United States.

Mumbai Mirror Bureau Opinions of three neurological experts from US form crux of suit filed by Qutbuddin, challenging Mufaddal's ascension as Bohra head. The opinions of three neurological experts from United States form the crux of the 700-page declaratory suit filed in High Court by Khuzaima Qutbuddin, half brother of the late Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, challenging his nephew Mufaddal Saifuddin's ascension as leader of the Dawoodi Bohras. Qutbuddin, who was second in command as Mazoon for 50 years alongside the Syedna, said he was made 53rd Dai-al-Mutlaq in private in 1965. Mufaddal, on the other hand, claims he was appointed successor by his father from his hospital bed in London, and later re-conferred the succession in Mumbai. While the late Syedna suffered a debilitating stroke in London in 2011, Qutbuddin and his supporters sought the views of neurological experts in US, who studied medical records of the Syedna to provide their opinion. The Syedna suffered the stroke on June 1, 2011, and accordi ...
Extradition: Kashamu loses bid to stop trial by United States Legal moves by the chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Buruji Kashamu, to stop the United States from extraditing him for prosecution over criminal offences allegedly committed by him offshore, has hit the rock. This is because a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja yesterday threw out a suit seeking to block his extradition. Buruji had specifically approached the high court to register in the Nigerian court some judgements entered in his favour by courts in the United Kingdom. The decisions cleared him of alleged criminal offences over which the United States government is reportedly seeking his extradition. Had the high court registered the judgements in Nigeria, the verdicts would have become valid in Nigeria and sufficiently blocked the US from extraditing him. Justice Gabriel Kolawole of Federal High Court, Abuja in a ruling, yesterday dismissed Kashamu’s ex-parte application, with which he had sought leave to register the two ...

a good hard look at this man! During his tenure and with his full support, last year, the Supreme Court gutted the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965; in effect, eliminating the protections that millions of people of color, the elderly, younger voters, and the poor have depended on in States with the worst history of voting rights abuses. Since then, Tea Party-controlled legislatures have led an assault on fair and free voting by introducing new voter suppression laws, such as limiting poll hours and shortening voter registration periods. Clarence Thomas, born on June 23rd, 1948, is an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Succeeding Thurgood Marshall, Thomas is the second African American to serve on the High Court. Thomas grew up in Savannah, Georgia, and was educated at the College of the Holy Cross and at Yale Law School.

In a period of just under three months, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) president Peter Mutharika has been to three hospitals in South Africa and the US seeking medical attention, Malawi News can reveal. The DPP presidential candidate has for three times sought permission from the High Court where he is answering treason and perjury charges to allow him to travel abroad for medical reasons. But in his letters of request for permission to travel abroad, Mutharika says the medical “check-ups” are routine.“…On Tuesday 5th November 2013, I applied to this Honourable Court for variation of my bail conditions referred in Paragraph 6 above to enable me access my passport and travel to South Africa for medical checkup which was duly granted,” reads part of the affidavit. It further adds: “I normally attend annual routine medical checkups in the United States. However, in the view of the fact that I am undergoing criminal accusations, I arranged therefore (the medical checkup) to be done in the Repu ...

If you’re not aware already, please take note that Israel exports oppression well beyond its borders; well beyond the Middle East. In fact Israel has effectively served as a mercenary state for the United States; supplying, arming and funding a whole range of dictatorships and police-states throughout Latin America which had or have US support. Throughout the 1980’s, Israel was one of the prime suppliers of weaponry and munitions to Guatemala’s Efrian Rios Montt, who was recently indicted for genocide, until Guatemala’s High Court annulled the case. In Colombia too — where some 220,000 people have been killed in the civil war there, with 80% of the killings attributable to paramilitaries closely connected with the Colombian state military — Israel has been one of the main suppliers of conventional weaponry to the Colombia government; meaning equipment ranging from rocket launchers to assault rifles and shotguns. Another very recent case demonstrates that this pattern is alive and kicking today ...
Earl Warren (March 19, 1891 – July 9, 1974) American jurist and politician who served as the 14th Chief Justice of the United States (1953–1969) and the 30th Governor of California. He is known both for his efforts on behalf of Japanese internment during World War II as well as the decisions of the Warren Court, which ended school segregation and transformed many areas of American law, especially regarding the rights of the accused, ending public-school-sponsored prayer, and requiring "one-man-one vote" rules of apportionment. He made the Court a power center on a more even base with Congress and the presidency especially through four landmark decisions: Brown v. Board of Education (1954), Gideon v. Wainwright (1963), Reynolds v. Sims (1964), and Miranda v. Arizona (1966). Warren is one of only two people to be elected Governor of California three times, the other being Jerry Brown.

A sad, sad day for the United States as DOMA is struck down. The court also ruled that the Prop 8 defenders did not have standing to defend the law so the lower court ruling of homosexual Judge Vaughn walker stands, thus *** marriage will resume in California very soon. So what is the message of this lack of standing? If a governor or attorney general will not defend a law that has been legally passed and no private party has standing to defend it, doesn't that mean that we essentially have the rule of dictators in the USA? Regardless of these sad rulings, the Lord God remains in control of the High Court of Heaven, the one where one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Thus, a word to those who love the Scriptures, "be calm and carry on". This is my Father's world and though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the Ruler yet.
IRS, NSA, Obamacare, auto black boxes vindicate author of back-to-Constitution basics. “Do they even understand the founding of this nation?…Look at the Constitution!” So begins another Mark Levin radio show in which the third most popular talk show host in the land ( behind Rush and Hannity) does his distinctly unique brand of radio, a brand that is focused on educating Americans about the nation’s founding document: The Constitution of the United States. A brand that includes a lengthening series of bestselling books discussing a subject that many once considered arcane at best if not embarrassingly irrelevant. Mark Levin has become the Constitution’s Churchill. Churchill, recall, the man who for years in the 1930s stood almost alone in his warnings of the dangers in appeasing Nazi aggression. Dismissed contemptuously by what biographer William Manchester called the British “social and political establishment” of the day, Churchill was the man nobody in England took seriously for years — ...

Everybody, except her Sychofants is her enemy. And she is prepared to insult them in any manner. But, there is a proverb “…To the man who only has a hammer, everything he encounters begins to look like a nail.”—Abraham Maslow .

Do you know the job description of the President of the United States of America? If you were interviewing the person for the job would you know what he is expected to do, once elected by the people. It is your business, who would you want to run it? Requirements: The President and Vice-President are the only people elected by all of the people in the entire United States of America. A candidate for President must be at least 35 years old, a natural-born U.S. citizen and have lived in the U.S. for at least 14 years. Terms: When elected, the President serves a 4 year term, with a maximum of 2 terms. Prior to 1951 the President could serve as many terms as elected, but after Franklin D.

If the House of Representatives feels the President has committed acts of "Treason, Bribery, or other High Crimes and Misdemean ...

Musings After Midnight--Why Are We Even Having This "Debate" in the United States of America? Good evening, my friend. Have a seat. Have some tea. I am sipping on some Earl Gray, my favorite brew. You can have coffee if you wish. Make yourself comfortable. I have Half n Half cream on the table, along with sugar lumps and an assortment of sweeteners if you need them. Just think how much fun this will be this winter when we can have these chats by the fireplace. I'll have to break out the hot chocolate and marshmallows for those occasions. I must admit to you this evening -- or should I say morning -- that I am greatly distressed by what I see happening around me in the country and in the world.

Nigeria’s richest pastor and Winners’ Chapel founder, David Oyedepo, flaunts a vast business empire worth billions of naira. And there is no end to his material acquisitions. To thousands of his devotees, David Olaniyi Oyedepo, billionaire businessman and presiding bishop at the Living Faith Church, better known as Winners’ Chapel, is a preacher of immense spiritual endowment. Fondly addressed as Papa by his congregation, Oyedepo is held in awe – the kind reserved for deities. The cleric’s deistic clout, however, transcends his Winners’ Chapel enclave. To many outside his fold, the prosperity preacher, who owns homes in London and the United States, and has been owner of four private jets so far, is gleaned from his insatiable material bequest. In 2010, Forbes, the respected American business magazine which keeps a tab on the world’s rich, listed Oyedepo as Nigeria’s wealthiest pastor, with an estimated networth of $150mn (about N23bn). Oyedepo is only followed on the rich list by another ...

Louis Dembitz Brandeis (pronounced /ˈbrændaɪs/; November 13, 1856 – October 5, 1941) was an Associate Justice on the Supreme Court of the United States from 1916 to 1939. LOUIS BRANDEIS: Born in Louisville, Kentucky, to Jewish immigrant parents who raised him in a secular home. He enrolled at Harvard Law School, graduating at the age of twenty with the highest grade average in the college’s history. Brandeis settled in Boston where he became a recognized lawyer through his work on progressive social causes. Starting in 1890, he helped develop the "right to privacy" concept by writing a Harvard Law Review article of that title, and was thereby credited by legal scholar Roscoe Pound as having accomplished "nothing less than adding a chapter to our law". He later published a book titled Other People's Money And How the Bankers Use It, suggesting ways of curbing the power of large banks and money trusts, which partly explains why he later fought against powerful corporations, monopolies, public corrupt ...
The death of Major Avtar Singh, accused in the murder of Kashmiri Human Rights activist Jaleel Andrabi, has not brought a closure for the victim's family who have vowed to continue their struggle for justice. "Jaleel's murder case is not over yet...There are other accused personnel in the case and ending the case here would mean injustice," Andrabi's wife Riffat said. She said her family will continue the fight for justice and dig deeper into the case for unravelling the truth. Andrabi was allegedly murdered by Singh and some other Army personnel in March 1996. A chargesheet was filed against the accused persons following intervention of the High Court in 1998.

I wonder if Polosi read the constitution before she wanted to amend it? Published 04/22/2012 | By Hank According to CNSnews.com, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats in Congress announced on Thursday that they have moved to ratify an amendment to the United States Constitution that would give Congress power to control the political speech of corporations, including those corporations that produce films, newspapers, books, and radio broadcasts. The amendment would seek to reverse the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission in which the High Court ruled that the First Amendment protects the right of free speech for corporations as well as individuals. It was this decision that President Obama openly criticized during his State of the Union address in January of 2010. Minority Leader Pelosi said that the move to amend the Constitution was part of a three-pronged strategy that includes passage of the DISCLOSE Act, which would further regulate disclosure r ...
A Puisne Justice or Puisne Judge ( /ˈpjuːni/; French: puisné or puîné, "junior") is the title for a regular member of a Court. This is distinguished from the head of the Court who is known as the Chief Justice or Chief Judge. The term is used almost exclusively in common law jurisdictions such as England, Australia, Kenya, Canada, Sri Lanka, India, and formerly in Hong Kong. Generally, the term is only used in relation to judges of a superior court, e.g., the Supreme Court or the High Court of a jurisdiction. The equivalent term in the United States is Associate Justice. The equivalent term in Scotland (which, although part of the UK, has a separate legal system) is Lord Ordinary.
