Call for ‘hard line action’ on coal health compensation

first_imgThe government has come under renewed pressure to probe the alleged undersettlement of coal health compensation claims, after an MP wrote to business secretary Lord Mandelson calling on him to take ‘hard line action’ against any law firms that might have undersettled. Dai Davies, Independent MP for Blaenau Gwent and a member of the All-Party Parliamentary Coalfields Community Group, wrote to Lord Mandelson last month. He said in his letter: ‘I would urge the government to take all necessary action to reclaim the exorbitant money paid to the relevant solicitors and review the compensation cases which… were under-valued at the time of settlement.’ Davies told the Gazette this week: ‘Most people who have put a claim in have questioned the significant profits made out of the suffering of miners and miners’ families. Those individuals feel that some cases have been rushed through.’ He said that he is expecting a reply from Mandelson shortly. The issue of alleged under­settlement of former coal miners’ coal health compensation claims was explored in a Gazette special report earlier this year (see [2009] Gazette, 30 July, 6). At the beginning of October, Labour MP for Bassetlaw John Mann said that he is gathering hundreds of former coal miners to sue their legal adviser for allegedly undersettling claims.last_img read more

U.N. holds emergency meeting to discuss the situation in Burundi

first_imgThe United Nations called the meeting after gunmen launched a coordinated assault on Friday where 12 attackers were killed and 21 captured in this latest round of fighting. However, witnesses say that at least 21 bodies have been found in the streets of a Bujumbura suburb. There is a fear that the violence could escalate.Since April tit-for-tat killing occur daily in Burundi, some experts say political violence remains a greater threat than ethnic violence.Burundi is a country which is of particular concern to the United Nations at the moment. There is a real fear that tensions could erupt, and the violence, which is already present, could escalate.This week, the UN special adviser on the prevention of genocide, Adama Dieng said he was worried the violence would lead to all-out civil war. Adding, after that “everything is possible.”The fact that a UN emergency meeting was called at such late notice, and on a Friday afternoon, shows the level of concern the Council members feel about the situation in Burundi. The meeting was called after gunmen launched a coordinated assault early Friday morning on three army bases in the capital Bujumbura.The UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a statement condemning those attacks, and said that such violence could lead to a further destabilization of the situation in the country. He urged all sides to refrain from any further violence or retaliation and expressed a hope for dialogue that can address, what he called “the deep political challenges” facing the country.Last month, the Council adopted a resolution making it clear it would consider additional measures against any Burundians who continue the violence and prevent the search for a peaceful political solution. And the UN is also looking into whether to send a peacekeeping team to the country. However, the government is currently opposed to the idea.Therefore, a UN support team may be sent – an alternative option but one that may be bolstered to a full peacekeeping mission, should the violence continue.last_img read more

first_imgPolice are not paid enough by the Government and so they divert their anger to innocent Kenyans #StopPoliceBrutality— Job Oyengo (@Joboyengo) May 17, 2016https://twitter.com/NijengeKE/status/732454576838823936Police should use the same energy to fight Alshabab #StopPoliceBrutality pic.twitter.com/m8Hx33jK4f— Ike Kenneth (@IkeOjuok) May 17, 2016 It doesn’t matter which side you are on but that kind of police brutality is appalling to say the least! #StopPoliceBrutality— Renaissance (@dmuriuki_) May 17, 2016 Kenyans on social media have joined forces to condemn terrifying police brutality witnessed in the country’s capital, Nairobi, as the police dispersed opposition protesters who were urging electoral commission reforms ahead of next year’s poll.The East African nation’s opposition leaders, including former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, led mass protests to demand the resignation of the country’s electoral body’s commissioners, when police moved in to disperse the protests.Pictures later emerged of the police brutally beating some protesters up, angering the Kenyans on Twitter, commonly known as #KOT.Under the hashtag #StopPoliceBrutality, twitter users in the country have condemned the excessive force used by the police, scenes that even prompted international media to condemn the way in which the police broke the protests.Here are some of the tweets;Under no circumstance whatever can we justify what we saw yesterday. Absolutely unacceptable. #StopPoliceBrutality— Ahmedkadar (@Ahmedkadar1) May 17, 2016last_img read more
