MET [Image: L – Talib, Demontagnac and Young]

All three were convicted on Friday, 5 July following a trial at the same court: The court heard how the three targeted their victim, a 17-year-old man, as he stood outside a youth centre in Woodgrange Road, E7 shortly before 17:30hrs on 12 October 2018………..Talib, Demontagnac and Young, who were all armed with knives, cycled up to the victim as he chatted with friends outside the youth centre………………Brandishing their weapons, they chased the victim into the youth centre before cornering him in a corridor and attacking him……………….During the frenzied attack, Demontagnac dropped his knife but retrieved it before inflicting more injuries on the victim. The three then ran from the scene leaving their victim with stab injuries to his head, back, chest, groin and thighs………….The victim was rushed to hospital where he underwent emergency surgery which ultimately saved his life…………………….Talib, Demontagnac and Young were quickly identified from CCTV within the centre and subsequently arrested and charged.

Detective Constable Ben Harland of the North East Command Unit led the investigation and said: “The ferocity of this attack was truly shocking and it is only by a combination of luck, and the skill of the medical teams at hospital, that this incident did not have fatal consequences………………..“Talib, Demontagnac and Young went out that day armed with knives and with the intention of causing serious harm to someone they perceived as a rival……………….“They showed no hesitation in pursuing their victim into a youth centre where children and other members of the public were present to carry out their assault…………………….“This attack has had a devastating impact on the victim and his family but I hope these sentences bring them some comfort and ensured that justice has been served.”

(DISTRICT OF NEWCASTLE, NSW.) Court Report: Firefighter who hatched a plan to start The Hunter Bushfires in 2017 so he could fight them” will serve more time in jail than the man who lit them — his y ounger brother #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: A firefighter and his brother have been jailed over four deliberately-lit bushfires that swept through parts of the New South Wales Hunter region in 2017: Retained Fire and Rescue worker Joshua Lambkin, 31, was handed a five-year sentence in the District Court of Newcastle, while his 26-year-old brother Craig Lambkin, who lit the fires, was sentenced to three-and-a-half-years……………………In the District Court of Newcastle, Judge Tim Gartelmann noted that text messages between the brothers showed they had purposefully picked days when the mercury soared above 40 degrees……………….”The degree of recklessness was very high,” Judge Gartelmann said…………………”Joshua Lambkin had a high degree of culpability in being a retained firefighter for encouraging Craig Lambkin to light fires, and would have appreciated the grave risk for many in community in doing that.”………………………..The fires, three of which were lit on January 18, with the fourth lit on January 24, forced the evacuation of homes, the local hospital, and a packed aquatic centre.

Key points:

  • A firefighter who encouraged his younger brother to light bushfires in NSW has been jailed for five years
  • His brother received a lesser sentence after admitting his guilt early and cooperating with police
  • The fires threatened homes, a hospital, and an aquatic centre in the Hunter Valley, leading to mass evacuations

During the sentencing, the judge rejected evidence from the prosecution that Joshua Lambkin, employed on an on-call basis, wanted extra work so that he could get paid more: Although Judge Gartelmann acknowledged that there was evidence that Joshua Lambkin was assigned to the fires and did receive payment, he was more swayed by the reasoning that Lambkin had hatched the plan simply because he “wanted to fight [the fires]”.

A NSW firefighter who hatched a plan to start bushfires “so he could fight them” will serve more time in jail than the man who lit them — his younger brother.

(COLUMBUS, Ohio.) DOJ Court Report: A couple has been charged with crimes related to stealing exosome-related trade secrets concerning the research, identification and treatment of a range of pediatric medical conditions #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: “Nationwide Children’s Hospital devoted years of work and its own money to researching exosomes in order to promote honorable medical advances,” U.S. Attorney Glassman said…………..“The hospital’s Research Institute took reasonable measures to keep its trade secrets secret………………..I commend the cooperation of Nationwide Children’s throughout this investigation.”

“The theft of trade secrets is a growing threat that severely impacts our economy and our national security,” stated FBI Cincinnati Special Agent in Charge Todd Wickerham: “The FBI is committed to investigating these cases and working with all of our partners to protect intellectual property.”

According to the indictment, Yu Zhou, 49, and Li Chen, 46, currently of San Diego, California, conspired to, attempted to and did steal scientific trade secrets related to exosomes and exosome isolation from Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s Research Institute for their own personal financial gain: The defendants were arrested in July and the case was unsealed today at the defendants’ arraignments in federal court in Columbus at 2pm before U.S. District Judge Sarah D. Morrison: Zhou and Chen are spouses who worked in separate medical research labs at the Research Institute for 10 years each (Zhou from 2007 until 2017 and Chen from 2008 until 2018) Exosomes play a key role in the research, identification and treatment of a range of medical conditions, including necrotizing enterocolitis (a condition found in premature babies), liver fibrosis and liver cancer: The husband and wife allegedly founded a company in China in 2015 without the hospital’s knowledge.……………………..While Zhou and Chen continued to be employed by Nationwide Children’s, they marketed products and services related to exosome isolation through their Chinese company………………The indictment also alleges that in 2017, Zhou and Chen helped co-found an American biotechnology company. As of 2019, the company’s website advertises multiple products and services related to exosome isolation, including a kit that was developed from a trade secret created at a Nationwide Children’s research lab………………….Zhou and Chen allegedly used the hospital’s Research Institute resources and equipment to conduct the exosome research necessary for their unauthorised, outside work.

In November 2017, Zhou and Chen allegedly received more than $876,000 and stock related to an asset purchase agreement involving the American biotechnology company: It is also alleged Zhou entered into a stock purchase agreement with that same company under which he would receive $450,000: Zhou resigned from the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s, effective Nov. 10, 2017. On Jan. 31, 2018, Chen resigned from her position at the research institute: Before his official last day of employment with the research institute, Zhou allegedly participated in a press release announcing the American company’s plans to market and distribute “proprietary exosome isolation systems” from its headquarters in Central Ohio.

Conspiring to, attempting to and committing theft of trade secrets is punishable by up to 10 years in prison: Conspiring to, attempting to and committing wire fraud carries a potential maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Assistant Attorney General Demers and U.S. Attorney Glassman commended the investigation of this case by the FBI, as well as Assistant United States Attorneys S. Courter Shimeall, Peter Glenn-Applegate and J. Michael Marous and National Security Division trial attorney Matthew J. McKenzie, who are prosecuting the case.

(KABUL, Afghanistan.) JUST IN: #Taliban claim responsibility for truck bomb killed at least 20 people and wounded 95 when it exploded near a hospital on Thursday, a provincial official said, with casualties expected to rise as rescuers sift the rubble #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: The #Taliban, said the target was a nearby building of the government’s intelligence department in Qalat, the capital of Zabul province: “The bomb was huge and it was carried by a mini-truck,” said a senior defence ministry official in the capital, Kabul, speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to media.

The militants wanted to target a training base for Afghanistan’s powerful National Directorate of Security, but parked the vehicle laden with explosives outside a hospital gate nearby, said another defense ministry source: Twenty bodies and 95 wounded people had been evacuated from the blast site, said Haji Atta Jan Haqbayan, a member of the provincial council in Qalat “ ………………..” The number of casualties may rise as rescue teams and people are still searching for bodies under the rubble “ he added: Several women, children, health workers and patients in the hospital were critically injured in the blast.

There has been no let-up in Taliban attacks across Afghanistan as it prepares for a presidential election this month: The Taliban has warned that its fighters will step up their campaign against the Afghan government and foreign forces to dissuade people from voting in the Sept. 28 election.

More than 9 million Afghans are expected to vote in the presidential election, during which the government has committed more than 70,000 security forces across Afghanistan to protection duties:

(TOKYO, Japan.) Court Report – #Fukishima Former #Tepco Bosses walk free of any negligence charges after 8-y ears of one disaster after another after judge rules NOW they can build more ‘ Nuclear Power Station s ‘ and endanger more lives #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: Former #Fukushima bosses have been cleared of negligence over one of the world’s worst nuclear crisis after a judge ruled they couldn’t have predicted the 2011 monster tsunami that caused the reactors to meltdown: The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear station, located about 220 kilometres north-east of Tokyo, was rocked by a magnitude-9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami in March 2011, sparking three reactor meltdowns and prompting Japan to shut down its entire fleet of nuclear reactors………………However, on Thursday, a Tokyo court cleared three former Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) executives of negligence for the disaster………….This was the only criminal case to arise out of the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl in 1986……………………Former Tepco chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata and one-time executives Sakae Muto and Ichiro Takekuro were all found not guilty by the Tokyo District Court……………………..Dressed in dark suits and ties the defendants sat in silence as Presiding Judge Kenichi Nagafuchi read the judgement.

Key points:

  • This was the only criminal case for the world’s worst nuclear crisis since 1986
  • The trial had started in 2017
  • Legal experts had warned a guilty verdict was unlikely

A woman sitting in the public gallery, where about 100 people were seated, shouted “unbelievable”, on hearing the verdict. Displaced residents and protesters waited outside the court: The trial, which started in June 2017, was conducted by state-appointed lawyers after prosecutors decided not to bring charges: Legal experts had said it was unlikely the three former executives of Japan’s biggest power provider would be found guilty, given prosecutors had decided not to take the case to trial.

More than 160,000 residents fled nearby towns in the aftermath as radiation from the reactors contaminated water, food and air: All up and down Japan’s north-east coast, thousands had vanished…………..To this day, 2,572 remain listed as missing.…………..It’s unlikely any of them will ever be found……………The Fukushima Health Management Survey found rates of psychological distress were far greater in Fukushima compared with other areas affected by the earthquake and tsunami that caused the Daiichi power plant meltdown

It also found an increased prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases like obesity and hypertension after the disaster.

The ghosts of Fukushima

The ghosts of FukushimaABC reporter Mark Willacy, who witnessed the devastation of Japan’s 2011 tsunami, reflects on the ongoing grief felt by residents who lost loved ones.

In 2018, Japan acknowledged for the first time that a worker at the Fukushima nuclear power plant had died from radiation exposure: Lawyers acting as prosecutors said the three executives had access to data and studies anticipating the risk to the area from a tsunami exceeding 10 metres in height that could trigger a power loss and cause a nuclear disaster.

Judge Nagafuchi ruled that to hold the executives responsible for criminal negligence the prosecuting lawyers had to prove it was possible to predict tsunamis: Mr Nagafuchi said that while the executives may have been aware of the risk of a major tsunami before the disaster, it was not established that they could have completed preventative measures in time: A commission appointed by Japan’s parliament concluded in 2012 that Fukushima “was a profoundly manmade disaster that could and should have been foreseen and prevented, [while] its effects could have been mitigated by a more effective human response.”

In 2016, the Government estimated the total cost of plant dismantling, decontamination of affected areas and compensation would be 21.5 trillion yen ($293 billion), or about a fifth of Japan’s annual budget: Prosecutors cited insufficient evidence when declining to bring charges, but a civilian judiciary panel twice voted to indict the executives, overruling the determination not to go to trial.

Citizen judiciary panels, selected by lottery, are a rarely used feature of Japan’s legal system introduced after World War II to curb bureaucratic overreach…….
