(LOS ANGELES, Calif.) Court Report: An MS-13 gang member has been sentenced to life in prison for the rape and murder of a 13-year-old girl in 2001: In March, a jury convicted 41-year-old Jorge Palacios of first-degree murder and kidnapping to commit rape in the case of Jacqueline Piazza of Whittier, Calif. #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – June.24: On Friday, Palacios was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus an additional 25 years, KTLA reports: The conviction comes almost exactly 18 years to the day after the naked body of 13-year-old Piazza was discovered in a remote area of Elysian Park, located just behind Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles. She had been raped and shot twice in the head.

Jurors also found Palacios guilty of “special circumstance” allegations, finding that the crime was committed “in the commission of rape, lewd acts on a child and kidnapping,” according to a news release from the Los Angeles District Attorney: Piazza’s murder was unsolved for nearly two decades until the city’s robbery and homicide division joined forces with the gang and narcotics division and uncovered new evidence in 2012 that pointed to Palacios and three other men.

Another jury is considering the same charges against Rogelio Contreras, 42, Melvin Sandoval, 40, and Santos Grimaldi, 36. Grimaldi is also facing an additional charge related to allegations that he used a gun during the crime: The men are set to appear in the Los Angeles County Superior Court on August 23: Authorities believed that the four men abducted the teen the night before her body was found, drove her to a secluded area of the park before sexually assaulting and murdering her.

A previous trial of Contreras, Sandoval and Grimaldi last year resulted in a hung jury……..

(KIEV, Ukraine.) #MH17 Latest: Three Russians and a Ukrainian have been charged with bringing a missile into the area in eastern Ukraine and with murdering 298 passengers and crew: President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on Wednesday he welcomed murder charges brought against four suspects over the 2014 downing of the passenger jet over eastern Ukraine, and said he hoped they would stand trial #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – June.20: “Ukraine welcomes the conclusions of the Joint Investigation Team on #MH17: The President of Ukraine hopes that … those who are guilty of this brazen murder of innocent children, woman and men, will be put in the dock,” Zelenskiy said in a statement: Authorities have named four men they allege were involved in the downing of flight MH17. Here is a snapshot of the details that have emerged during an investigation into their activities: https://ab.co/2FmdIsp

For the first time since Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down in July 2014, prosecutors have announced charges against suspects in the case: Three Russians and a Ukrainian have been charged with bringing a missile into the area in eastern Ukraine and with murdering 298 passengers and crew………..The passenger flight was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was shot down over conflict-hit Ukraine…………….Russia said the accusations against its military were “absolutely threadbare”……….International arrest warrants have been issued for the four suspects and a court case will begin in the Netherlands on 9 March 2020.

The Dutch-led joint investigation team (JIT) named the men as Igor Girkin, Sergei Dubinsky and Oleg Pulatov from Russia, as well as Ukrainian Leonid Kharchenko: The JIT, which is seeking to try the suspects under Dutch law, had previously said it had a “long list” of persons of interest and appealed again for witnesses as the investigation continued.

The most prominent of the four is Igor Girkin (also known as Strelkov), who prosecutors say is a former colonel in Russia’s FSB intelligence service: He was given the minister of defence title in the rebel-held eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk………..He is believed to be the highest military officer in the area who was in direct contact with the Russian Federation. In a statement Mr Girkin said: “I can only say that militia did not shoot down the Boeing.”

The others charged are:

  • Sergei Dubinsky (known as Khmury), who prosecutors say was employed by Russia’s GRU military intelligence agency, was a deputy of Mr Girkin and in regular contact with Russia
  • Oleg Pulatov, known as Giurza, who the JIT says was a former soldier of GRU special forces and deputy head of the intelligence service in Donetsk
  • Ukrainian national Leonid Kharchenko, who has no military background but led a combat unit as a commander in eastern Ukraine, according to prosecutors

“These suspects are seen to have played an important role in the death of 298 innocent civilians”, said Dutch chief prosecutor Fred Westerbeke: “Although they did not push the button themselves, we suspect them of close co-operation to get the [missile launcher] where it was, with the aim to shoot down an aeroplane.”………….Investigators, he added, had “evidence showing that Russia provided the missile launcher”.

The investigative website Bellingcat has named 12 people it accuses of being involved in transporting the missile used to down MH17, including the four charged by the JIT.

The passenger jet left Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport at 10:15 GMT on 17 July 2014 and was due to arrive at Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia the following day: A few hours after take-off, the plane lost contact with air traffic control about 50km (30 miles) from the Russia-Ukraine border……..At the time, an armed conflict was raging on the ground in eastern Ukraine between Russian-backed separatists and Ukrainian government forces, and several government military aircraft had been downed in the previous weeks, while government air strikes were being carried out on rebel-held areas.

Map shows the route taken by flight MH17

The plane crashed in the Donetsk area, in territory controlled by separatists. Parts of the wreckage were found distributed over an area of about 50 sq km (19 square miles). In October 2015, the Dutch Safety Board concluded the plane had been hit by a Buk missile, causing it to break apart in mid-air…………The JIT – which includes officials from the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine – concluded in May 2018 that the missile system belonged to the 53rd Anti-Aircraft Missile brigade, based in the western Russian city of Kursk. It produced evidence that it said proved how the missile system had reached eastern Ukraine………..An animated video from the Dutch Safety Board shows the damage to the plane and how it was caused……………Russia responded by denying any of its anti-aircraft missile systems had ever crossed the Ukrainian border: Australia and the Netherlands have both officially held Russia responsible for the crash.

Russia’s foreign ministry said in a statement that it rejected the findings of the JIT which were “aimed at discrediting the Russian Federation in the eyes of the international community”: Unnamed Dutch officials have told news agencies that Russia refused to co-operate with the investigation but the foreign ministry denied this, saying Russia had always been interested in establishing the truth: Russia accused the JIT of using dubious “sources of information”, including evidence “fabricated” by Ukraine, while ignoring evidence offered by Russia. Under Article 61 of Russia’s constitution, no Russian citizen can be extradited to another state………A former rebel official in Donetsk, Andrei Purgin, said it was “absurd” to accuse the separatists of involvement in downing the plane, Russia’s Interfax news agency reports. Asked by AFP news agency, Ukrainian security services said they had “no information” on Leonid Kharchenko’s whereabouts or whether he was even still alive.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky welcomed the Dutch-led inquiry’s conclusions, Reuters news agency reports: He said he hoped “those who are guilty of this brazen murder of innocent children, woman and men will be put in the dock”………UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said Russia “must co-operate fully with the prosecution and provide any assistance it requests” in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 2166, which was passed in response to the downing of MH17………….”The international community stands together against the impunity of those responsible for the despicable murder of 298 innocent people,” he added…………….Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg said the bringing of charges marked an “important milestone in the efforts to uncover the full truth and ensure that justice is done”.

A total of 283 passengers, including 80 children, and 15 crew members were killed on the flight:

Victims on board MH17Various: Those killed were from across the world: The dead included 193 Dutch nationals, 43 Malaysians, 27 Australians, 12 Indonesians, 10 Britons, four Belgians, four Germans, three Philippine nationals, one New Zealander and one Canadian.

Silene Fredriksz, mother of one of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 victims, speaks with reporters, 19 June 2019Reuters: “ It’s a start” – Silene Fredriksz, mother of one of the victims: Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s announcement, Silene Fredriksz, who lost her son Bryce, said that in the five years since the downing of MH17, some relatives had died not knowing the truth: “We all get older… I hope that I will know the truth before I close my eyes,” she said: Barry Sweeney, father of 28-year-old British victim Liam, said he was still looking for the truth: “It’s not going to bring anyone back, but if I found out why it happened, it would bring a bit of closure,” he said.

(LONDON) JUST IN: Court Report: Government broke the law by allowing arms exports to Saudi Arabia court ruled on Thursday and that applies granting of next arms export licenses but it did not go far enough to conclud e Saudi-led coalition were in breach of humanitarian law in the past, during the Yemen conflict.” #A ceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – June.20: The British government broke the law by allowing arms exports to Saudi Arabia that might have been used in the conflict in Yemen, a British court ruled on Thursday: While the court’s decision does not mean Britain must immediately halt arms exports, it does mean that there is a stay on the granting of next arms export licenses to Saudi Arabia – Britain’s richest Arab ally.

“The Court of Appeal has concluded that the process of decision-making by the government was wrong in law in one significant respect,” judge Terence Etherton said as he handed down the ruling: He added that the government made “no concluded assessments of whether the Saudi-led coalition had committed violations of international humanitarian law in the past, during the Yemen conflict.”

London will have to reconsider the way it handles such export licenses to Saudi Arabia: “The decision of the court today does not mean that licenses to export arms to Saudi Arabia must immediately be suspended,” he said: “It does mean that the UK government must reconsider the matter, must make the necessary assessments about past episodes of concern, allowing for the fact that, in some cases, it will not be possible to reach a conclusion.”

The case was brought by the Campaign Against the Arms Trade against the British government: “The Saudi Arabian regime is one of the most brutal and repressive in the world, yet, for decades, it has been the largest buyer of UK-made arms,” said Andrew Smith from the Campaign Against Arms Trade. “The arms sales must stop immediately.”

Rosa Curling, solicitor of law firm Leigh Day which acted for the campaigners said: The government will now have to reconsider whether to suspend existing export licenses and reconsider its decision to continue to grant licenses.
