The FundRaising Standards Board is in the clear over an advertisement that appeared in the national press earlier this year.The Advertising Standards Association (ASA) had received complaints that the advert misleadingly implied that charities that were not members of the FRSB were generally untrustworthy. One complainant challenged whether the ad misleadingly implied that charities that were members of the FRSB were generally trustworthy in respects other than fundraising.The ASA adjudication said: We considered that the ad made clear that the FSB scheme related to fundraising only and merely encouraged people to look out for the FSB tick before donating.

Experts have told Reporters Without Borders that tens of thousands of IP addresses suspected by the authorities of using Freegate and VPNs, especially those that are free, have been blocked in the past few days.“The Electronic Great Wall has never been as consolidated as it is now, on the eve of the 1 October anniversary, proving that the Chinese government is not so sure of its record,” Reporters Without Borders said. The new restrictions are making it even more difficult to access social-networking websites such Facebook and Twitter, or YouTube’s video-sharing sites, which have been blocked since July.China’s leaders have made combating separatism one of the watchwords of the 60th anniversary, and new regulations have just been issued for combating online separatism in the far-western province of Xinjiang.A Reporters Without Borders study of Uyghur-language and Xinjiang-based websites has established that the clampdown imposed during last July’s rioting in the province has not been loosened. Most of the sites that existed before the unrest are either still inaccessible or their content has not been updated. Of the 65 sites included in the study, 54 are still blocked for Internet users in China or abroad.Even Tianshannet.com, a Xinjiang-based website that was held up by the authorities as an example of a site that respected the regulations, is no longer accessible. Xinjiang residents have been cut off from the Internet for almost three months and Uyghurs are being deprived of all news and information that is independent of the official media.Three China-based Mongol websites – Mongol Ger Association (http://www.mongolger.net/), Mongol People Chat Room (MGLhun), which is hosted on the Sina.com site (http://www.sina.com.cn/), and Mongolian People (http://www.mongolhun.com/) – have been rendered inaccessible in the past few weeks.The Mongol Ger Association site had become very active in promoting the Mongol language and had referred to sensitive subjects such as arbitrary arrests and the right to land access for Mongols. The site’s owner, identified as Sodmongol, was arrested by the Chinese authorities on 13 June. Mongol People Chat Room, which covered politics, culture and the environment and organised events centred on the rights of Mongols in China, was closed without prior warning.The Mongolian People site offered a range of services to Mongols in China, putting people in touch with each other and organising charity events. The authorities accused all three sites of conspiring with hostile and separatist foreign forces – the same grounds that have been cited for censoring dozens of Tibetan websites and forums (release http://www.rsf.org/Authorities-tighten-grip-on.html).Chinese hackers have meanwhile posted crude messages and xenophobic slogans on Taiwanese and Australian film festival websites in protest against the screening of “The 10 Conditions of Love,” a documentary about Uyghur exiled activist Rebiya Kadeer, who is blamed by the Chinese authorities for stirring up the violence in Xinjiang. The hackers, who did not hide their affiliation to the Communist Party of China, called on the festival organisers to apologise to the Chinese people for including the film in their programmes.China-based foreign journalists have also been the target of hacker attacks. Emails containing viruses have been sent to French, American, Singaporean and Italian correspondents. The Chinese assistants of foreign reporters have received booby-trapped emails that try to establish a parallel control over the recipient’s computer. At the same time, Chinese websites based abroad such as Boxun have received very aggressive distributed denial-of-service attacks DDOS (in which targeted servers are swamped by simultaneous communication requests).Police have used violence against foreign journalists trying to cover the preparations for the 1 October parade. Three journalists employed by the Japanese news agency Kyodo, for example, were attacked in their hotel room by plain-clothes men after a parade rehearsal on 18 September. They were hit about the head and their computers were smashed. This occurred after the authorities warned more than a dozen of foreign news media not to film or photograph the preparations. The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China has asked the foreign ministry to explain the ban, which is not based on any rule or law.

They met on a matrimonial site where the applicant introduced himself as a Major in the Army currently posted in Manipur. Justice Bharati Dangre noted that the fact that the complaint has been filed more than two years after the alleged incident of rape itself creates many questions. Moreover, Justice Dangre opined that at this stage, the custodial interrogation of the applicant is not necessary and with an assurance that he will cooperate with the investigation which in progress, the following ad-interim relief would serve the purpose. The applicant has been booked for offences punishable under Sections 376, 377, 420 of the Indian Penal Code. According to the complainant, after befriending her on a matrimonial site, the applicant got in touch with the complainant through Whatsapp/Video Call and telephone. Thereafter, the complainant alleged that in the month of April 2018, the applicant visited Mumbai specifically to meet the complainant and he stayed in a hotel. During his stay, the complainant visited him and the duo decided to get married in December. The allegation is that she was taken into confidence by the applicant and it is during this visit the applicant forcibly established physical relationship with the complainant and assured that since they are going to get married, there is nothing wrong in maintaining the physical relationship. She also referred to some unnatural sex being committed resulting in registration of an offence under Section 377 of the IPC. 3 Furthermore, since the complainant missed her period somewhere in June 2018, she visited a Doctor and consumed one tablet by which she was able to get rid of the pregnancy. There was unwillingness and reluctance on the part of the applicant to tie the nuptial knot, the complaint states. Even the families of the applicant and the complainant got involved and it is then alleged that the hesitancy on the part of the applicant and his family to perform the marriage, prompted the complainant to approach the police station and lodge a complaint on July 20, 2020. The delay in filing the FIR was sought to be explained by submitting that the complainant was under the impression that the applicant is going to marry her and therefore, she kept mum. APP Prajakta Shinde argued that the allegations made by the complainant who had intervened in the proceedings before the Sessions Court, the applicant had indulged in cheating with other woman folk and he had used multiple identities and put to use distinct mobile numbers. According to the learned APP, she has been instructed by the Investigating Officer, on the basis of the complaint by the complainant that he was using 14 mobile numbers and the better particulars are yet to be investigated into. As far as the mobile phone used by the applicant through which he was in touch with the complainant has been seized by the Investigating Officer. APP Shinde did not dispute the fact that the applicant had cooperated with the Investigating Officer when he was directed by the Sessions Court to report. The applicant is presently posted in Kamptee Cantonment, Nagpur and he has been serving in the Indian Army since June 2012, APP Shinde said. Finally, Justice Dangre said- “The fact that he is working in the Army, a disciplined force, is a sufficient guarantee of he being a law abider and there is no hesitation in my mind that he will co-operate with the Investigating Agency. As far as the allegations contained in the complaint are concerned, the complaint read with the conversation on the Whatsapp chat which has been placed on record do reveal that at a point of time, the applicant and complainant were desirous of getting married and both of them invested in the relationship, however, for the reasons very personal to them, they drifted apart. The complainant and the applicant both being major are entitled to take decisions in their life. The fact that the complaint has been filed more than a period of two years after the alleged incident of rape itself creates many questions. In any case, the veracity of the complaint will have to be thoroughly investigated and whether there was an ingredient of cheating will also have to be discerned during the course of investigation.” Applicant’s counsel Swastik Singh submitted that his client is expected to resume work this weekend and therefore, he (applicant) would obtain necessary permission from his superior and then co-operate with the investigation by coming back to Mumbai. Justice Dangre – “Since in my considered view, at this stage, the custodial interrogation of the applicant is not necessary and with an assurance that he will co-operate with the investigation which is in progress, the following ad-interim relief would serve the purpose.” Thus, anticipatory bail was granted on a personal bond of Rs.25,000 and directed to be present in Mumbai between August 24 to August 28.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Story

Akhtar has accused Kangana of damaging his “immaculate reputation by falsely attributing statements to him,” in her interview with Republic TV anchor Arnab Goswami, on July 19, 2020, soon after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. He filed a complaint for offences punishable under sections 499 and 500 (defamation) of the Indian Penal Code in the Metropolitan Magistrate Court, in Andheri, in November. Before the sessions court, Kangana had challenged the Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate Court’s order issuing process against her under section 204 of the CrPC, on February 1. The February order was passed after Akhtar was examined on oath and an inquiry was made by the local police. Kangana had said the procedure under section 200 of the CrPC, which requires the complainant as well as witnesses to be examined on oath, before the issuance of process, was not followed. Akhtar opposed Kangana’s plea through Advocate Jay Bharadwaj. He argued that the magistrate’s order did not warrant interference as witnesses were to be examined only if they were present. He further argued that by issuing summons, Kangana was given a fair chance to respond to the complaint. Akhtar’s counsels had earlier pointed out Kangana’s response to a Live Law post, to show she received summons but still chose not to appear in court. The Metropolitan Magistrate Court had then issued a bailable warrant against her. The warrant was cancelled after Kangana approached the Court and undertook to furnished a cash bail of Rs. 20,000 and surety worth Rs. 15,000. In his complaint, Akhtar says he is a self-made man, who reached Mumbai on October 4, 1964, with Rs 27, two pairs of clothes and a few books. He was 19 then. “The complainant is one of the most senior artists in the film industry with his successful career spanning over more than 55 years, which in itself is a rare achievement. Apart from this, he was also nominated as a member of Rajya Sabha during the period March 2010 to March 2016,” the plea stated about Akhtar’s reputation. Akhtar claims that in an interview that lasts 57-minutes, Kangana is seen giving her opinion on the circumstances surrounding Rajput’s death without any direct personal knowledge. His plea further stated that the defamatory statements were made against him during this interview.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Lynette Gibson McElhaney(LOS ANGELES) — A 21-year-old student at the University of Southern California was shot dead near the Los Angeles campus this weekend, the university said, leaving his mother, an Oakland councilwoman, heartbroken.Victor McElhaney was a senior at USC’s Thornton School of Music “where he was pursuing his lifelong love of music with some of the greats,” his mother, Oakland Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney, wrote in a statement Sunday.Councilwoman McElhaney called her son’s death a “senseless act of violence.”The Los Angeles Police Department said a 21-year-old man was shot during a robbery shortly after midnight Sunday. The gunman and two or three other suspects fled the scene, which was east of campus, by Adams Boulevard and Maple Avenue, police said.The victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Police did not release the victim’s name or confirm that he died.“Victor was a son of Oakland,” his mother said. “He was a musician who drew his inspiration from the beat, soul, and sound of the Town and he belonged in every nook and cranny of Oakland.”“I miss my baby,” she said. “Please keep me, my family, and all of my son’s friends in your thoughts and prayers.”Victor McElhaney was a jazz studies student who “believed in the power of music to touch lives, to heal, and to bring hope,” Robert Cutietta, Dean of the USC Thornton School of Music, said in a statement Sunday. “We honor Victor’s life and send our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends in this time of grief and tragedy.”USC Thornton faculty member Peter Erskine, who taught the 21-year-old privately for a year, said in a statement, “I just saw Victor a week or two ago walking across campus. His smile, even on that sunny day, lit up the whole place.”“I had the pleasure of getting to speak with his mother Lynette at a student orientation meeting,” Erskine said. “I asked, ‘What does Victor want?’ She replied, ‘He wants to change the world.’ And that’s what he was doing with his music, trying to change the world. He made it a better place.”“Victor was already playing at a professional level when he came to USC,” Erskine said. “Speaking on behalf of the entire USC community, we are devastated by this loss, and we extend heartfelt and heartbroken condolences to all of his family, friends and colleagues.”University officials added, “We appreciate the diligent and ongoing efforts of the Los Angeles Police Department to quickly identify and arrest those responsible for this senseless crime and extend our greatest sympathies to Victor’s family and friends.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
