While the Gardaí in Westport didn't seek to have the bench warrant issued and informed the court that protestor Eoin Lawless was appearing in the High Court at that time, Judge Devins insisted upon issuing a bench warrant. read full story / add a comment

On 8 June 2009 Mr Justice (Sir) Declan Morgan delivered the judgment in the marathon Omagh civil case. The judgment delivery ended the year long hearing leaving more questions unanswered than answered with its content less than convincing. The burden of proof in civil cases is based on the laws of probability and in this case Mr. Justice Morgan stretched the probability rule well outside the boundaries. The judgment in its entirety contained multiple ambiguities and inevitably the defendants will appeal. One can only assume that Mr Morgan is a highly intelligent man by the very fact that he has recently been elevated to the office of Lord Chief Justice, however this particular judgment may come back to haunt him. read full story / add a comment

The constitutional council of the republic of France has today published its 580th ruling this year. It overturns a Sarkozy law which would have allowed for the state to block internet access by all the kind of people who download movies, books, music and all that sort of general crap & fun regardless of whether they intented to enjoy it at home or sit by the side of a street like a third worlder and flog it to a passerby.

This good news shall have repercussions on the European political level, the history of Human Rights, the shaping of the entertainment industry lobby strategy to tax RW CD' and storage devices & thus will make many more pages of news than malaria or Darfur. read full story / add a comment

Branislav Peranovic is the "archpriest" (orthodox equivalent to dean's rank) who has run the "Novi Pazar" drug rehabilitation centre since 2003. Video footage shown on Thursday night on Serbian TV,& being widely picked up throughout European media, clearly shows inmates being beaten, a regular occurence which Peranovic justifies completely telling press that a "heavy hand" is needed and that anyone who has a "junkie in their home" would understand this. He further insists that parents of his "patients" approve the regime which is now to be investigated by the Serbian state who understandably consider the whole thing to be torture.

One former inmate describes how patients put their trousers bottoms in their socks before their beatings knowing that they will lose bowel control & in common parlance "shit themselves" but at least it won't go over the carpet or tiles. read full story / add a comment

Anyone lucky enough to catch episode 5 of the 13th series of "South Park" will already have digested the idea that Somalian pirates could be directed by a little fat kid with an attitude problem. But now the Spanish radio station "SER", acknowledged through its long list of leaks for its links to the intelligence services, has broadcast fresh claims, it says is based on a leaked briefing from European military intelligence that the pirates are being guided from London. & not just a bedsit in Dalston - but rather insiders in the maritime transport industry and insurance sectors. read full story / add a comment

"EVERY SATURDAY a group of young people, their faces hidden by masks or scarves, gathers outside the office of the Church of Scientology in Abbey Street in Dublin with leaflets and placards making serious allegations about the sect.

If the new law prohibiting publishing or uttering blasphemous matter becomes law, as proposed yesterday by Minister for Justice Dermot Ahern, they could face fines of up to €100,000 and have their homes raided by members of the Garda Síochána in order to seize the offending material." read full story / add a comment

Czech authorities ordered a former Ku Klux Klan leader, David Duke, to leave their country at midnight yesterday. The 59-year-old American had been invited to the Czech Republic by a local far-right group to give lectures in the University of Charles social sciences department, promote a book, and foment the agenda. But on Friday he was arrested and questioned by police on suspicion of denying the Holocaust, an offence under Czech law, however he was not charged since he had not actually denied the Holocaust publically on Czech soil at that point. Today responding to internet social group messages, neonazi's who had been due to converge on Prague to hear him speak appeared to change their mind and offer low key solidarity with David Duke. read full story / add a comment

Writer/Filmmaker based in Dublin seeks to interview individuals who have been indirectly or directly affected by aggravated assault or street crime. According to Garda figures there were 3800 incidents of this nature last year in Dublin alone. The aim of this project is to more fully understand the residual effects of post traumatic stress arising from unwarranted assault. In doing so it is hoped to investigate the healing process and resilience of the victim through shared experience. Interviews will be carried out with absolute discretion to the sensitivity of the subject and at the convenience of those willing to take part. read full story / add a comment
