  • Killing dogs for meat illegal, rules S. Korean court

    Golocal247.com news

    A South Korean court has ruled the killing of dogs for meat is illegal, in a landmark decision that animal rights activists said Thursday could pave the way to outlawing eating canines. Despite no specific ban, authorities have invoked hygiene regulations or animal protection laws that ban cruel slaughter methods to crack down on dog farms and restaurants ahead of international events such as the Pyeongchang Olympics. Animal rights group Care last year filed complaints against a dog farm operator in Bucheon, accusing him of "killing animals without proper reasons" and violating building and hygiene regulations, and prosecutors later charged him.

  • Malaysia reopens probe into Mongolian model's murder as pressure builds on former premier Najib Razak

    Golocal247.com news

    The Malaysian police are set to reopen an investigation into the murder of a Mongolian model in 2006, in a politically charged case that could add to the woes of Najib Razak, the beleaguered former prime minister.  Altantuya Shaariibuu, 28, was killed and blown up with military grade explosives in a forest near the capital, Kuala Lumpur, after being kidnapped late at night outside the home of her alleged lover Abdul Razak Baginda - a defence analyst who advised Mr Najib between 2000 and 2008.  Two former police officers, Sirul Azhar Umar and Azilah Hadri, were sentenced to death for the crime but reports have alleged that they served as bodyguards for Mr Najib, who was deputy prime minister at the time of her gruesome death.  Sirul fled to Australia to seek asylum and is currently being held at a detention centre in Sydney.  Malaysia's Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad meets Dr Shaariibuu Setev, father of Altantuya Shaariibuu on Wednesday Credit: Malaysian PM The police confirmed to The Star newspaper that they were reopening their investigations after Shaaribuu’s father flew to Malaysia from Mongolia to file a fresh statement.  Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s prime minister, who ousted Mr Najib in a shock election result in May, pledged his support for Setev Shaaribuu’s case “if there is new evidence”, after meeting with him on Wednesday evening, reported Channel News Asia.  Mr Shaaribuu has alleged that the former government tried to block the truth from emerging, and that the true plot behind his daughter’s murder was covered up.  Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor are facing a corruption probe Credit: Mohd Rasfan/AFP In his statement to the police, he named a former aide to Mr Najib as a “crucial witness.” Mr Najib himself has always denied knowing the victim.  However, the timing of the case could spell more trouble for the ousted leader, who is currently banned from leaving the country amid another investigation into an alleged multi-billion dollar corruption scandal involving the 1Malaysia Development Berhad state fund, that he earlier founded.  In claims made to Reuters on Tuesday Dr Mahathir said that the authorities have “an almost perfect case” against Mr Najib on charges of embezzlement, misappropriation and bribery linked to 1MDB.  Mr Najib responded in his first interview since his stunning election defeat, telling the news agency that he knew nothing about money from the state fund appearing in his personal bank account.  He claimed his advisors and the management and board of 1MDB had wrongly kept the embezzlement of funds a secret from him.  Public anger over the scandal, which US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has described as “kleptocracy at its worst”, was a significant factor in his election defeat. Malaysian police seize a huge haul of handbags belonging to Najib Razak's wife Credit: Ariffin Jamar/AFP Mr Najib insisted in the interview that he did not know if hundreds of millions of dollars that moved through his personal account was from 1MDB, and if money from the fund was eventually laundered to acquire assets globally, including yachts, paintings and jewellery.  He did shed some light, however, on the origin of dozens of luxury bags that were recently seized by the police from properties linked to his family.  The handbags were gifts and wedding presents to his wife and daughter, and had nothing to do with 1MDB, he said.  “These were gifts, particularly with my daughter’s they were tagged, they were actually labelled: when, by whom,” he said.  He added that his son-in-law, Daniyar Nazarbayev, the nephew of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the Kazakh president, also gifted many bags to Rosmah Mansor, Mr Najib’s wife.  “People might find it hard to understand, but my son-in-law for example, he gets Birkin from his source, five or six at one go,” he said. “His family has got some means, so it has nothing to do with 1MDB if it comes from Kazakhstan.”

For now, the Swedish company is focusing on a cost-savings plan running until 2020 to shore up profitability, hoping that growth will then return as the pace of 5G network upgrades picks up early in the following decade. Having struggled with flagging revenue since 4G sales peaked in the middle of the decade, Ericsson is pinning its hopes for revived growth on the emergence of new mobile businesses in 10 broad sectors such as manufacturing, energy and public safety.

  • New York mayor 'shocked' that migrant children as young as nine months secretly sent to his city

    Golocal247.com news

    New York's mayor said he was shocked that at least 239 minors arrived incognito after being separated from parents on the Mexican border. While Donald Trump signed the end of a policy of separation of families at the border that provoked outrage in the United States and abroad, Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio went into a a reception center for migrant children in Harlem, where a television crew had filmed the previous night some girls arriving secretly, apparently separated from their parents at the border. The segregated minors included a nine-month-old baby and traumatized children, many with lice, bedbugs or contagious diseases. Mr De Blasio emerged from the reception centre saying he was "shocked to learn" how many children separated from their parents had been sent to New York, explaining that this single center in Harlem had received 239 children without the knowledge of city authorities. "How is it possible that none of us knew that there (were) 239 kids right here in our city?" he said. "How is the federal government holding back that information from the people of this city and holding back the help that these kids could need?" Bill de Blasio held a press conference outside the Cayuga Center in East Harlem, a facility currently accepting children separated from their families at the Mexican border Credit: Drew Angerer/Getty  "The mental health issues alone, they made clear to us, are very real; very painful," De Blasio stressed. The Cayuga Center, which has classrooms in a six-story building across the street from an elevated train line, has a federal contract to place unaccompanied immigrant children in short-term foster care. Officials at the center did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment. Mr De Blasio said the staff there told him it has taken in about 350 children since President Donald Trump's administration implemented its "zero tolerance" policy this spring calling for the criminal prosecution of all adults caught crossing the border illegally. He is off to join other US mayors Thursday in Texas to visit a childcare center and denounce the migration policy of the Trump administration.
