(BERLIN, Germany.) JUST IN: Madame Tussauds places wax Trump in a garbage filled dumpster… but not everyone is impressed as ‘ many cheered ‘ and fights broke out across the capital on Friday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.31: The Berlin branch of the world’s most famous wax museum has placed its figurine of US President Donald Trump in a garbage-filled dumpster, sparking verbal fisticuffs online: Madame Tussauds in Berlin, an outpost of the legendary London wax museum, placed its lifelike replica statue of Trump in a dumpster on Friday, apparently in anticipation of the Republican incumbent being defeated by Democratic rival Joe Biden in the November 3 election:

Orkide Yalcindag, the museum’s marketing director, described the unorthodox curation as “symbolic” and “a preparatory measure.”

The museum appears to have taken pains to publicize the move, with a Reuters photographer snapping photographs of staff members placing the smiling Trump figurine in a garbage-bag-filled dumpster. A red “Make America Great Again” baseball cap was also tossed in the trash can. 

The museum doesn’t typically ‘throw away’ wax models of US presidents, even after they leave office. Their statue of former president Barack Obama, for example, has been left untouched. 

The politically-tinged stunt received wide applause on social media. Numerous commenters hailed the move as “perfect” and “where Trump belongs.”

Others suggested that the “whole Trump family” was heading for the dumpster after the presidential election. 

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Not everyone swooned over the gimmick, though. 

One Twitter user mocked the museum’s “brave commentary” and said it should try the same stunt with a wax statue of Islam’s Prophet Mohammed.

Similarly unimpressed commenters theorized that Germans were just angry at Trump for demanding that it pay its fair share for military defense from NATO, and condemned the dumpster exhibit as tasteless.

#AceNewsReport – Oct.31: Between 30 and 50 Turkish teenagers are said to have rampaged through the Catholic Church of St. Anton von Padua in Vienna-Favoriten.

Writing on Twitter about the rowdy flash mob, the Austrian chancellor said that all Christians in the country must be able to “exercise their faith freely and safely.”

We will resolutely continue the fight against political Islam and will not show any false tolerance here.

No one was injured during the incident and police are currently reviewing surveillance footage. The youths reportedly met earlier in the day at a square, where they shouted “Islamic slogans” and set off firecrackers.

(WARSAW, Poland.) JUST IN: Demonstrators against new restrictions on abortion flooded the streets of the capital on Friday night as part of a week of protests #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.31: Tens of thousands of people marched through Warsaw on Friday night, as part of a week-long series of demonstrations sparked by a court decision that banned nearly all abortions in Poland: Drone footage published by Ruptly, RT’s video agency, shows a sea of protesters pouring into the city’s roadways. People lit flares, waved lights and held homemade signs as they moved through the capital. The protest was so large that even footage taken from the air doesn’t appear to show the entire demonstration, with columns of people seemingly continuing into the distance:

RT.Com/ https://cdnv.rt.com/files/2020.10/5f9d02b42030274d21414188.mp4

The massive demonstration was largely peaceful, but there was a noticeable police presence due to concerns that clashes could break out with right-wing counter-protesters:

Poland’s constitutional tribunal ruled earlier this month that abortions in instances where the fetus has a serious birth defect were unconstitutional: The decision makes abortion unlawful in almost all circumstances, as Poland already has some of the most restrictive laws on the procedure in Europe: Poland’s government has accused the demonstrators of endangering public health by spreading coronavirus: Abortion activists argue that they are fighting for human rights:

(NEW YORK) DOJ Court Report: Six individuals involved in two cargo heists and selling the proceeds have been indicted and variously charged with grand larceny, conspiracy, criminal possession of stolen property and other crimes for allegedly carrying out complex heists from John F. Kennedy International Airport earlier this year #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Using insider information, the defendants allegedly hauled tractor trailers loaded with more than $6 million worth of designer merchandise, including Chanel handbags and jewelry, Gucci purses, sunglasses, sneakers and clothing, along with Prada bags, ready-to-wear and accessories:

FBI JFK Taskforce teamed up with law enforcerment partners takedown organisation who carried out heists of ‘ designer merchandise ‘ with a value of more than $6-million ….

Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz said: “The safety and security of this county’s airports are a top priority. Teaming up with our law enforcement partners, we relentlessly pursued the suspects, who allegedly used forged documents and their insider knowledge as former airport workers to steal air cargo: Of course our airports must be safe and secure for travelers, but they also must be trusted by international companies transporting cargo to our region – especially during a pandemic when our City needs PPE, test kits, medical supplies and equipment: I would like to thank both the PAPD and the FBI’s JFK Task Force for their diligence in taking down this crew.”Port Authority Chief Security Officer Bilich said, “This multi-agency effort was a success for the security of the region and the rule of law. Detectives from the Port Authority Police Department along with FBI Agents, and the Queens DA’s Office displayed unrelenting dedication and commitment to solving this case and making sure that the perpetrators will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law……………..”The District Attorney’s Office identified the main defendants as David Lacarriere, 33, and Gary McArthur, 43, both truckers who formerly worked at JFK Airport: Lacarriere and McArthur and four other defendants are variously charged in a 22-count indictment with grand larceny, conspiracy, criminal possession of stolen property and other crimes:

On the night of January 31, 2020, according to the charges, Lacarriere, using his knowledge of how shipments are picked up at the airport, went to the receiving office for an air cargo importer. He allegedly showed a forged document listing the correct airway bill and flight details for a shipment of Prada products. He and McArthur, who enlisted the assistance of two others, allegedly used a tractor trailer to load four pallets of Prada merchandise into the truck and drove away.

According to the charges, this first heist netted the defendants approximately $804,000 in Prada bags, clothes and accessories: A few days later on February 4, 2020, police located the trailer used in the robbery: The inside was empty, except for the interior being doused in bleach:

Continuing, according to the indictment, on May 17, 2020, the same routine was repeated in a second JFK heist: One of the defendants posed as a truck driver and presented another forged document authorizing the release of merchandise from the same air cargo import company: Defendants Lacarriere, McArthur and Davon Davis and others allegedly hauled away 5 air freight pallets containing thousands of pieces of Chanel and Gucci merchandise valued in excess of $4.4 million:

Again, as detailed in the charges, the defendants allegedly abandoned the trailers used in the heist: One trailer was found on May 29, 2020 on 56th Road in Maspeth. Inside, police found shipping pallets, wrapping material, shipping tags and display cases: The interior of this trailer was also drenched in bleach.DA Katz said, in June 2020, police traced McArthur, Lacarriere, Davis and an unapprehended coconspirator to a non-operational beauty salon allegedly used as a stash house for the stolen goods. Surveillance video shows the defendants including Davis, who is a former employee of Delta Airlines, going in and out of Candi World Beauty Bar at Guy R. Brewer Boulevard and 147th Avenue in Jamaica:

(TEHRAN, Iran.) JUST IN: Officials accused the US on Friday of acting like the “Pirates of the Carib bean” after Washington said it had sold off Iranian crude oil shipments that it seized on their way to Venezuela #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Iran brands U.S. ‘pirates’ over seized Venezuela-bound oil: Washington said on Thursday it had sold 1.1 million barrels of previously seized Iranian oil that was bound for Venezuela, in the Trump administration’s latest move to increase pressure on Tehran less than a week before the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election: “The Pirates of the Caribbean openly boasting abt(about) their booty… No one civilized brags abt stealing,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Twitter:

Reuters Wire News, [Oct 30, 2020 at 17:34] https://t.me/reuters_news_agency/44124

Iranian officials have said the seized crude oil shipments belonged to shippers and not Iran: But according to an unsealed U.S. forfeiture complaint, the fuel originated with firms tied to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, and shippers took steps to mask ownership:
The unsealing of the forfeiture complaints by the Justice Department came as the Treasury Department and State Department jointly imposed sanctions on a combined 11 different entities and individuals for their involvement in the purchase and sale of Iranian petrochemicals:

U.S. officials also said they had seized Iranian missiles shipped to Yemen: In July, Iran denied that U.S. forces had seized a boat carrying Iranian weapons to Houthi rebels in Yemen, saying the charge was aimed at extending a U.N. arms embargo on Tehran:
Iran-aligned Houthi rebels have been fighting the Yemeni government, backed by a Saudi-led coalition, since 2015. Tehran denies charges by Saudi Arabia and the United States that it gives financial and military support to the Houthis.

(NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.) Court Report: A pot dealer who gained fame by staging a daring escape from the Orange County jail while awaiting trial was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole for kidnapping and torturing a marijuana dispensary owner who was sexually mutilated in the Mojave Desert #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: County Superior Court Judge Gregg Prickett, however, rejected a motion for a new trial for Hossein Nayeri, 41, who was convicted in August of last year and has cycled through several defense attorneys since firing the attorney who represented him at trial: Nayeri was sentenced to two consecutive terms of life in prison without the possibility of parole, along with another seven years to life: He was convicted of two counts of kidnapping for ransom and one count of torture: A burglary charge against Nayeri was dismissed earlier in the case:

Pot dealer who escaped from the ‘ Orange County Jail ‘ was sentenced on Friday to life in prison without parole for ‘ kidnapping and torturing ‘ a shop owner


ABC7 Published: https://t.me/c/1099420761/2000239
Nayeri, who vociferously proclaimed his innocence from the witness stand during the trial, insisting he was being “railroaded” and set up as a fall guy by police and prosecutors, showed no reaction when the verdicts were read: Prosecutor Matt Murphy, who retired and had his last day at work as the trial wound down, said Nayeri was as “maniacal a criminal defendant as I’ve ever had.”……….Nayeri and two other men broke into a Newport Beach home where the dispensary owner was renting a room about 2:30 a.m. Oct. 2, 2012, Senior Deputy District Attorney Heather Brown said during the trial: The trio of masked assailants kidnapped the dispensary owner and Mary Barnes, the homeowner from whom Nayeri was renting the room, Brown said: The man had a shotgun pointed in his face, and when he tried to brush it aside, “the beating began,” Brown said: The man’s name is not being released because he is the victim of a sex crime.

According to prosecutors, the culprits were motivated by greed, mistakenly believing that the dispensary owner had buried roughly $1 million in the desert: “There’s no doubt the motive in this case was money — a million dollars,” Brown said in her opening statement. “In fact, a million dollars the victim didn’t have.”…………

During the abduction in Newport Beach, the man was “kicked and choked to the point he defecated in his pants,” Brown said: The assailants put the man and Barnes into a van and made a 90-minute drive to the desert, during which they whipped him with a rubber hose, scorched him with a blowtorch and poured bleach on him as they repeatedly demanded he reveal where he had buried $1 million, Brown said: The man said he didn’t have that much money but he would be willing to take them to his medical marijuana dispensary and give them about $34,000, “but that wasn’t enough,” the prosecutor said:

In the desert, they stopped and took the victims out of the van and poured bleach all over the man, leading him to believe it was gasoline and that his assailants were going to “light him on fire,” Brown said: Then one of the men took out a kitchen knife and slashed off the man’s penis, which was never found, the prosecutor said: They left the knife, telling Barnes if she could find it, she could free herself before dying, Brown said: After they drove off, Barnes nudged her blindfold off with her knees and managed to find the knife, which she used to undo the zip ties binding her feet, but she couldn’t cut off the ones on her hands, Brown said:

Unable to get her roommate free of his bonds, she ran barefoot about a mile through the desert to a highway, where a Kern County sheriff’s deputy saw her and helped get the man to Antelope Valley Medical Centre: A break in the investigation came courtesy of a neighbor who saw a suspicious pickup truck near the victims’ home about the time of the abduction and took down a license plate number, which led police to co defendant Kyle Handley, 40, who was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility for parole for his part in the crimes:

Handley, a marijuana grower who had sold product to the dispensary owner, had been a guest of the victim when he went on gambling trips to Las Vegas, but they had fallen out of touch, Brown said: Handley went to high school in Fresno with Nayeri and other defendants in the case, the prosecutor said. A zip tie found at Handley’s Fountain Valley home was linked to co-defendant Ryan Anthony Kevorkian, 40, who is awaiting trial, Brown said. Co-defendant Naomi Rhodus (formerly Naomi Kevorkian) is also pending trial on several felony counts, accused of participating in the plan: A glove found in Handley’s pickup truck had DNA on it matching Nayeri, Brown said:

Nayeri’s name rang a bell with investigators as he had led Newport Beach police on a high-speed chase on Sept. 26, 2012, before getting away: The Chevrolet Tahoe used in the chase was still in the impound yard as police were investigating the abductions, Brown said: Nayeri’s then-wife, Cortney Shegarian, attempted to retrieve the vehicle, leading police to eventually persuade the then-law school student to cooperate with authorities: Shegarian, who had been estranged from Nayeri’s family, attended an uncle’s funeral in Spain and re-established ties with his relatives in an effort to help authorities in a ruse to get Nayeri out of Iran, a country from which he could be extradited, Brown said: The Iranian native, who grew up in Fresno, eventually agreed to get on a plane and was arrested in Prague in the Czech Republic, she said: Nayeri’s former attorney, Sal Ciulla, suggested in his opening statement that Kevorkian and Handley were the ones who masterminded an abduction and that his client was not involved: Nayeri testified in his own defense during the trial, insisting he had no role in the abduction and torture. He admitted spending months monitoring the victim’s movements through surveillance and GPS equipment, but said Handley was paying him to do so: He accused investigators of planting evidence to incriminate him, and he said he fled to Iran simply out of fear: After being arrested, Nayeri made headlines for staging a daring escape from the Orange County Jail with two other inmates in January 2016 and remaining on the lam for eight days: Nayeri testified that he felt he had no choice, and anyone else would have done the same “if you got railroaded as bad as I have.””

(FLORIDA) Court Report: Fla. woman indicted for ‘ first-degree-murder’ accused of killing her 9-year-old autistic son as prosecutors call for death penalty she remains in jail awaiting trial according to Miami Herald #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: A grand jury has indicted a Florida woman for first-degree murder in the drowning death of her autistic 9-year-old son, and prosecutors said they will pursue the death penalty: Patricia Ripley is accused of the May 21 death of Alejandro Ripley, and a host of other crimes: She remains in jail while awaiting trial, the Miami Herald reported

KTLA reports thta her son suffered from severe autism and could not speak: His mother initially called 911 and said two Black men took her son after running her off a road south of Miami and took the boy, police said. An Amber Alert was issued for the boy: The child’s body was found the next day in a canal a few miles from the area she said the abduction took place.

Investigators were initially suspicious of Ripley’s changing accounts of what happened: They learned that earlier in the evening, Ripley was caught on surveillance cameras pushing the boy into a canal. A bystander rescued the boy from the water.

Police said the mother pushed the child into the water about an hour later and he drowned.

When police confronted Ripley, she admitted making up the kidnapping story. She also admitted leading the child to the canal where he died and said “he’s going to be in a better place,” a police report said.

Ripley was not at Thursday’s hearing. And because she now faces capital punishment, she must be told that her lawyers must be certified to handle death-penalty cases, the Herald reported.

“We would need to have Miss Ripley here,” prosecutor Gail Levine told the court.

Another hearing was set for next week.

Her defense lawyer, Suzy Ribero-Ayala, said she has not been able to have face-to-face meetings with her client because jail visits are still suspended because of the threat of the coronavirus. She has talked to her via virtual meetings.

(TUNISIA) JUST IN: Counter Terrorism Investigation has been launched into existence of so-called ‘Mahdi Organisation’ that allegedly claimed responsibility for Nice attack that press agency TAP said was prompted by social media #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: The counter-terrorism division of Tunisia’s public prosecutor’s office has ordered a probe into whether the alleged terrorist cell, “Al Mahdi in southern Tunisia,” is real, and if so whether it played any role in Thursday’s attack in Nice: The Tunisian press agency TAP said that the investigation was prompted by a social media post in which an individual who claimed to be part of the group took responsibility for the knife rampage that killed three people:

The suspect in the incident is a Tunisian migrant who recently arrived in France from Italy. The 21-year-old, identified as Brahim Aouissaoui, was shot and seriously wounded by police after allegedly carrying out the attack at the city’s Notre Dame church. Police claim that they found several blades, two phones and a copy of the Koran at the crime scene: The French government has described the attack as an act of Islamic terrorism: His family in Tunisia, however, insists that Aouissaoui showed no signs of extremism. In an interview with Reuters, his sister said that he had come to the church on Thursday morning soon after arriving in Nice and was planning on sleeping nearby. In a video call with his family, Aouissaoui reportedly said that he planned to sleep in a building opposite the church: The entire family is now under investigation, and their phones have been confiscated by Tunisian security officials, Aouissaoui said

On Friday, French police detained a 47-year-old man who was reportedly in contact with the suspect a day before the attack: The French government has vowed to crack down on Islamic extremism and has said the country should brace for further attacks on its soil:

(TEESSIDE, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Two men who were involved in an altercation with a Yarm man in the hours before his death have been sentenced today #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.30: Edwin Taha, 20, of Lavender Way, Norton and Ali Abdulmajieed, 19, of Corvus Drive, Stockton were each sentenced for a charge of affray in relation to an attack on Luke Jobson, whose body was discovered in the river Tees in January of last year. All of the men had been out in Yarm High Street in the early hours of Saturday 26 January when an argument broke out between Luke and another man, who was an associate of Taha and Abdulmajieed:

After a failed pursuit of Luke on foot the pair then returned to a vehicle, which was driven by Abdulmajieed, leading to a further altercation at Yarm School during which Taha sprayed a substance in Luke’s eyes from a bottle he was carrying. The men then drove away leaving Luke Jobson in the grounds of Yarm School, where he was captured on CCTV entering a boathouse some time later. Tragically, Luke’s body was recovered from the River Tees near to the school around 48 hours after these events: Taha was also sentenced for five further charges in relation to the possession and supply of cocaine, MDMA and ketamine.

Chris Atkinson of CPS North East said: “While Taha and Abdulmajieed have been sentenced today for these charges our thoughts remain with the family of Luke Jobson, for whom this will no doubt be a particularly difficult time: ” While we have proved beyond reasonable doubt that both men were involved in an affray with Luke prior to his death, there is absolutely no evidence to suggest any causal link between their actions and the tragic events which occurred after their attack took place.”

The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 6.9, with an epicenter 13 kilometers (8 miles) north northeast of the Greek island of Samos: The United States Geological Survey put the magnitude at 7.0. It is common for preliminary magnitudes to differ in the early hours and days after a quake. Multiple aftershocks struck the region:

Izmir mayor Tunc Soyer told CNN Turk that about 20 buildings collapsed. The city is the third biggest in Turkey with about 4,5 million residents. Turkey’s interior minister tweeted six buildings in Izmir were destroyed: He said there were small cracks in some buildings in six other provinces:

The environment and urban planning minister, Murat Kurum, said people were trapped under the wreckage and rescue efforts were underway: Videos posted on Twitter showed flooding in the immediate aftermath of the quake in Izmir’s Seferhisar district. Turkish officials and broadcasters called on people to stay off the streets after reports of traffic congestion.

Turkish media showed wreckage of a multiple-story building in central Izmir, with people climbing it to start rescue efforts: Turkish media showed at least one woman being helped from the rubble of a collapsed building. Smoke was filmed in several spots in central Izmir:

Turkish media said the earthquake was felt across the regions of Aegean and Marmara, including Istanbul. Istanbul’s governor said there were no reports of damage in the city, Turkey’s largest: The quake was felt across the eastern Greek islands and as far as the Greek capital, Athens, and in Bulgaria.

Greek seismologist Efthymios Lekkas told Greek state television ERT that it was still too early to say whether this was the main earthquake, although he said it was likely it was: ” It is an event that is evolving,” Lekkas said, adding that some damage had been reported in parts of Samos.

A tsunami warning was issued, with residents of the Samos area told to stay away from the coastline: Water rose above the dock in the main harbor of Samos and flooded the street.

Residents have also been told to stay away from buildings, as aftershocks continued to rattle the area. Local officials told state media there were reports of damage to buildings and part of the island’s road network:

(BIRMINGHAM, U.K.) Full Crown Court Report: A woman who setup a charity purporting to ‘ Help Asylum Seekers ‘ was secretly smuggling ‘ Illegal Immigrants into the U.K. ‘ & turning a bl ind eye as they worked in cannabis farms to pay for her ‘charitable’ services has been sente nced today to nearly 5yrs & partner to 4yrs in prison #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.29: Pranvera Smith established Freedom to Stay in 2014 and ran the Birmingham-based group with her partner Flamur Daka: The charity – which fraudulently claimed a £10,000 Big Lottery Fund grant – promoted itself as a not-for-profit group helping vulnerable Albanian asylum seekers navigate the benefits and care system:

Bogus asylum charity bosses jailed for trafficking racket that brought illegal immigrants into the country and employed them on minimum wages & and took money off them to launder money through a restaurant:

However, an investigation by police in the West Midlands revealed the crooked pair were lining their pockets with taxpayers’ money and charging clients a small fortune for their help they claimed was free:

Flamur Daka

Smith openly described herself as ‘La Nonna’ – or an Albanian mafia ‘Grandmother’ – to intimidate immigrants and bully them into paying around £1,000 each: Many of the new arrivals ended up working below minimum wage in car washes to meet Smith’s demands, while some were rescued from illegal cannabis farms.

And the investigation by officers from the West Midlands Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU) even found the 47-year-old and Daka, aged 44, trafficked people from Albania in trucks via Ghent: On 2 July this year ROCU officers – working alongside the East Flanders Human Trafficking Unit in Belgium – rescued a 21-year-old man from the back of a lorry in the Belgian port: Freedom to Stay’s offices in Hagley Road were raided along with their home addresses plus a property in Bearwood High Street – which Smith spent around £30,000 on to convert into a Mediterranean restaurant – through which they laundered their crime proceeds:

Detectives trawled through the charity’s financial dealings and found in the first six months of 2020 alone it had represented more than 130 victims and collectively charged them at least £130,000:

Smith and Daka were both charged with conspiracy to breach UK immigration law: Smith was also charged with fraud by false representation in relation to the Big Lottery Fund claim and supplying cannabis after officers recovered a kilo of the drug as part of the investigation: Daka was additionally charged with supplying cocaine: They admitted the offences and at Birmingham Crown Court today (29 October) Smith was sentenced to five years and four months imprisonment and Daka to four years:

ROCU Detective Chief Inspector Will Henley, said: “These were cynical, calculating crimes. Smith and Daka positioned themselves as big hearted charitable people who wanted to help very vulnerable people: “In reality they were traffickers and abusers. They knew migrants would be paying up to £10,000 to traffickers to gain illegal entry in to the UK – and Smith would then charge each asylum seeker upwards of £1,000 for their ‘charity’ services: “The rescued man would have been expected to hide in a lorry trailer for the entire duration of the trip from Belgium: Once their trafficking racket was established we believe they intended to smuggle up to 30 people a month into the UK: “Smith liked to describe herself as ‘La Nonna’ to ensure people knew she wasn’t a person to be messed with. If they couldn’t pay up she would withhold important personal and immigration documents: “And while their victims were suffering she and Daka were making lots of money which they spent on developing a restaurant and on houses in Albania and Turkey: “We have restrained these properties pending a Proceeds of Crime Investigation. It’s important we show that crime doesn’t pay: “I’d like to thank the East Flanders Human Trafficking Unit who helped us collect vital evidence; I have no doubt that together we have prevented a large number people being trafficked into the UK.”
