(AUSTRALIA) JUST IN: Federal Court Report: The first directions hearing in a class action against chemical giant Monsanto, over claims commonly used herbicide Roundup causes cancer, have been held on Tuesday according to ABCNews #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Dec.19: Monsanto has repeatedly argued the science says glyphosate is safe, as do regulators across the world: In the US, Monsanto was ordered to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars in damages to four cancer patients, with thousands more plaintiffs awaiting trial: The lawyers representing the class action allege Monsanto misled consumers by suggesting the active ingredient in Roundup, glyphosate, was safe and did not pose a health risk to humans who followed the company’s product safety directions.

LHD Lawyers managing director Matthew Berenger said they would also allege Monsanto breached consumer product safety guarantee provisions in the Australian Consumer Law.

“At the moment, we’ve got 70 to 80 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma sufferers, who range from farmers to people who worked at council, to just your mum and dad, who have been using the product around the house, to hobby farmers” he said.

“The lead plaintiff formerly did weed spraying as an occupation.”

Key points:

  • It’s alleged Monsanto misled consumers by suggesting Roundup’s active ingredient didn’t pose a health risk to humans who followed safety directions
  • Lawyers say those registered for the class action developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, allegedly as a result of exposure to Roundup
  • German pharmaceutical company Bayer bought Monsanto last year and refutes any claims Roundup causes cancer

A second class action had also been lodged in Victoria’s Supreme Court by Carbone Lawyers, with representatives attending the Federal Court hearing today:

Mr Berenger said the two parties had been encouraged to talk to each other, but no court orders were made regarding which class action would take precedence: In a statement, LHD lawyers said those who had registered for the class action had developed non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, allegedly as a result of their exposure to Roundup in agricultural and domestic settings.

“Most group members have suffered physically, emotionally and financially as a result of their diagnosis, having been required to undergo extensive treatment programs and being left unable to work or with limited capacity,” Mr Berenger said.

The lead applicant is South Australian man John Fenton who worked as a farm hand in rural Victoria, during which time he claimed he was exposed to Roundup on a regular basis.

(SILICONE VALLEY, Calif.) Transparency by ‘ Tech Companies ‘ are ‘ NOT ORDER OF THE DAY ‘ when Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google ‘ DECLINE TO SHARE ‘ the #Truth o nline about attack ‘ including ‘ Halle Germany Shooting ‘ and now some states in Ger many are electing to pay for their own private armies to protect ‘ Jewish communities from ‘ Hate & Terrorist Attacks ‘ #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Oct.23: Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft and Google decline to release figures despite pledge in wake of Christchurch attack: US tech companies have declined to release data on the online spread of footage of last week’s shooting in Halle, Germany, despite pledging greater transparency as part of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s “Christchurch Call”………………….Companies including Facebook and Twitter committed in May to take “transparent, specific measures” to prevent the amplification of violent content, after the killing of 51 people in Christchurch, New Zealand was livestreamed on Facebook. Germany shooting: data on online spread of livestreamed attack kept secret // Twitter | The Guardian : 

Some German states are now moving to ensure that situation isn’t repeated: In the eastern state of Thuringia, authorities have agreed to post armed officers outside synagogues during services, Der Speigel reported. In Hesse, security will be provided at every synagogue and Jewish institution during Jewish holidays, a police spokesman said. And in Bavaria, synagogues were added as stops to routine police patrols following the attack.

At the federal level, Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said that police will “have to take a closer look at the gamers’ scene,” a reference to the shooter’s frequent use of online gaming platforms: That comment sparked protests by German gamers, who fear an invasion of their privacy based on what they call a false generalisation: German Jewry’s Values Initiative, a nonprofit that has positioned itself as a mainstream think tank for German Jewish communities, has proposed a seven-point plan for improving security for German Jews, including better real-time monitoring of video streaming platforms like the ones that the Halle gunman used to broadcast his assault for about 30 minutes.

After the synagogue attack, the group called for police protection of “all synagogues, Jewish and Israeli institutions in Germany,” charging that police had “misjudged” the threat facing smaller communities like Halle: It also recommended improving police response time, noting that it took 16 minutes for officers to confront the shooter………………..“It is time that Germany decides how it deals with hatred of Jews and other inhuman hatred forms,” Elio Adler, the group’s chairman, wrote. “The previous methods are clearly not enough.”

German officials seem to agree: They were quick to condemn the Oct. 9 attack and reassure the Jewish community of their support. Chancellor Angela Merkel attended a vigil in Berlin that day and told Jews in Halle that her government was committed “to do everything possible so that you can live safely.”…………….Merkel said the attack “shows us that this is not so simple and that we must do even more,” though she did not specify what further action she envisaged.

Police protection is absent currently from many German synagogues and Jewish institutions, said Ophir Revach, director of the European Jewish Congress’ Security and Crisis Center: “In Germany’s larger cities, Jewish communities get police protection and hire security firms additionally. But small communities like Halle have neither, leaving them exposed,” he said.

In Frankfurt, the Jewish community of 6,600 members pays about $1.2 million a year for private security to supplement the protection provided by police, Leo Latasch, the head of security for the community, told Der Spiegel last week: In Berlin, the Jewish community and the government split the cost of private security firms, according to Sergey Lagodinsky, a European Parliament lawmaker and a former Jewish community leader in the city.

(LONDON) MET Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu Statement: Sir Kim Darroch Criminal Investigation launched into alleged leaking of official communications in criminal breaches of the ‘ Official Secrets Act ‘ He also advise all owners, editors, publishers of social and mainstream media not to publish leake d government documents that may already be in their possession, or which may be offered to them, and to turn them over to the police or give them back to their rightful owner, Her Majesty’s Government #AceNew sDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – July.14: Statement from Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu: “Following a cross-government investigation led by the Cabinet Office a Gateway Process has occurred today with the Metropolitan Police into the alleged leaking of official communications involving Sir Kim Darroch: “As a result the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command, who take national responsibility for investigating allegations of criminal breaches of the Official Secrets Act, has launched a criminal investigation: “Given the widely reported consequences of that leak I am satisfied that there has been damage caused to UK international relations, and there would be clear public interest in bringing the person or people responsible to justice: “The investigation will be reviewed at every stage to ensure a proportionate investigation is undertaken: “I would say to the person or people who did this, the impact of what you have done is obvious. However, you are now also responsible for diverting busy detectives from undertaking their core mission. You can stop this now. Turn yourself in at the earliest opportunity, explain yourself and face the consequences: “Also, to anyone who knows or suspects those responsible, or who has any information, please come forward.

Statement from Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu: “The Metropolitan Police respects the rights of the media and has no intention of seeking to prevent editors from publishing stories in the public interest in a liberal democracy: The media hold an important role in scrutinising the actions of the state: “We are however a body charged with enforcing the law, and we have received legal advice that has caused us to start a criminal enquiry into the leak of these specific documents as a potential breach of the Official Secrets Act (OSA). The focus of the investigation is clearly on identifying who was responsible for the leak: “However, we have also been told the publication of these specific documents, now knowing they may be a breach of the OSA, could also constitute a criminal offence and one that carries no public interest defence: “We know these documents and potentially others remain in circulation: “We have a duty to prevent as well as detect crime and the previous statement was intended to alert to the risk of breaching the OSA.”

“The publication of leaked communications, knowing the damage they have caused or are likely to cause may also be a criminal matter: “I would advise all owners, editors and publishers of social and mainstream media not to publish leaked government documents that may already be in their possession, or which may be offered to them, and to turn them over to the police or give them back to their rightful owner, Her Majesty’s Government.” “Exercise your public and civic duty and call the police on 0800 789321 without delay. That call will be treated in strictest confidence:

(OXFORD, Wis.) LATEST: George Papadopoulos began serving his two-week prison sentence on Monday after a judge rejected his last-minute bid to remain free saying its was to send a message to the public not to lie to the FBI but really its trying pin something on the President and Prevent Clinton being indicted #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Nov.27: Papadopoulos arrived at a minimum-security camp in Oxford, Wisconsin, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.Papadopoulos, the first campaign aide sentenced in Mueller’s investigation, triggered the Russia investigation two years ago: He was sentenced in September for lying to the FBI about his interactions with Russian intermediaries during the 2016 presidential campaign #AceNewsDesk reports

He had sought a postponement of his prison term until an appeals court ruled in a separate case challenging the constitutionality of special counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment: But U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss said Papadopoulos had waited too long to contest his sentence.

The White House has said Papadopoulos, 31, was a low-level volunteer on the campaign. But he’s been a central figure in the Russia investigation dating before Mueller’s May 2017 appointment: According to an indictment handed up this summer, Russian intelligence had stolen emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign and other Democratic groups by April 2016, the same month Papadopoulos was informed by a professor that Russian officials had told him they had “dirt” on Clinton in the form of “thousands of emails.”Papadopoulos later used his connections with the Maltese professor, Joseph Mifsud, and other Russian nationals in an attempt to broker a meeting between then-candidate Donald and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Papadopoulos admitted last year to lying to the FBI about those contacts with Russians and Russian intermediaries.In recent months, Papadopoulos has spent many nights posting on Twitter, venting anger about the FBI and insisting he was framed by the government: He also has offered to testify before the Senate intelligence committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, if he’s granted immunity or other conditions.“The truth will all be out.

Not even a prison sentence can stop that momentum,” Papadopoulos tweeted Sunday “Looking forward to testifying publicly shortly after. The wool isn’t going to be pulled over America’s eyes forever.”Papadopoulos’ sentence, issued by Moss on Sept. 7, was far less than the maximum six-month sentence sought by the government but more than the probation that Papadopoulos and his lawyers had asked for.

Moss at the time noted that many similar cases resulted in probation but said he imposed a sentence of incarceration partly to send a message to the public that people can’t lie to the FBI.

(WAKEFIELD, U.K.) Convicted Paedophile David Thomson aka Karen White Trans inmate who abused women in jail sent to prison has been moved to HMP Wakefield MEN ONLY PRISON following a series of rape and sexual assault convictions #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Nov.19: A transgender prisoner who molested inmates at a women’s jail is now locked up with Britain’s most dangerous men: Karen White, who was born David Thompson but claims to identify as a woman, has been moved to HMP Wakefield – nicknamed Monster Mansion #AceNewsDesk reports

The switch comes after White – still legally a man – was jailed for life last month for sexually assaulting two female prisoners at nearby New Hall and after admitting raping two other women while outside prison: The New Hall attacks happened while White, 52 – a convicted paedophile – was on remand for threatening a 66-year-old neighbour with a steak knife.

A source said: “It must be a bit of an eye-opener to go from New Hall to Wakefield, to put it mildly.”………………Female lags at New Hall, which also houses juveniles and young offenders, keep their own chickens and have ensuite toilets and showers in their cells……………..But eight miles away at Wakefield Category A prison, inmates are subject to one of the toughest regimes in the country……………The jail has been home to the likes of Soham monster Ian Huntley, Charles Bronson, child killer Stuart Hazell and mass murderer Robert Maudsley who killed three behind bars.

White was kept on remand at New Hall even though she had not undergone transgender surgery: Wakefield insiders say she has become “depressed” as she adjusts to life there and has now started gender reassignment………………….She is allowed to dress as she pleases, at the governor’s discretion – but sources say she is ­struggling to raise funds to buy wigs and make-up.

When White was jailed the judge at Leeds Crown Court branded her a “significant risk to women”…………….Requests for transfer from prisoners on self-identified gender grounds are normally assessed by a special board.

Last night the Ministry of Justice would not comment on White’s ­Wakefield switch

(BEIJING, China.) JUST IN: WWF Devastated by State Council Plan to END 25yr BAN on trade in ‘ Tiger Bones and Rhino Horn ‘ reversing the prohibited trade and authorising for scientific, medical and cultural use #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsDesk – Oct.31: Animal conservationists are alarmed over China’s decision to partially reverse a ban on the trade of tiger bones and rhino horn: Rhinos and tigers are both endangered in the wild and China prohibited their trade in 1993: But on Monday it said parts from captive animals would be authorised for scientific, medical and cultural use: Experts worry this will increase demand for the animals and jeopardise efforts to protect them: Rhino and tiger parts are highly valued in traditional Chinese medicine. They are prescribed to treat a large variety of ailments including fever, gout, insomnia and meningitis, though any benefits have not been proven #AceNewsDesk reports

Rhino horn is highly prized in traditional Chinese medicine

In a statement announcing the replacement of the 25-year old ban, the State Council said powdered forms of rhino horn and bones from dead tigers could be used in “qualified hospitals by qualified doctors”.

The animal products can only be obtained from farms, it said: Parts from those animals classified as “antiques” could be used in cultural exchanges if approved by the cultural authorities, the statement adds.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) said in a statement that the move would have “devastating consequences” and be an “enormous setback” to efforts to protect the animals in the wild:“Even if restricted to antiques and use in hospitals, this trade would increase confusion by consumers and law enforcers as to which products are and are not legal, and would likely expand the markets for other tiger and rhino products,” WWF said.

Rachel Nuwer, author of the book Poached: Inside The Dark World of Wildlife Trafficking, said on Twitter this could mean “game over” for the remaining tigers and rhinos in the world…………………….She argued that trade in legal endangered species products provides cover for parts from animals that have been illegally killed.
