#AceNewsReport – Oct.24: STATEMENT NOTES: Liverpool local policing Superintendent Diane Pownall said: “We are aware that there has been a number of reports nationally about people having their drinks spiked or people reporting being injected: While we understand that people may be alarmed by these reports I want to reassure people that we have not received a huge number of reports in relation to incidents of this nature on Merseyside: We have reviewed reports recorded between 1st September and 22nd October this year. During that period we received 17 reports of people who believed they had had their drinks spiked: It is important that people are reassured that these reports have been extensively investigated with officers examining CCTV, speaking to victims and potential witnesses and looking into medical evidence. Following those enquiries two remain under investigation: This matter remains under constant review and is also monitored through weekly licensing meetings. We are also liaising with the Student Safety Group, licensed premises and other partners: Liverpool is awarded Purple Flag status every year and is one of the safest cities in the UK. We know that people travel far from far and wide to enjoy what is on offer here and we want that to continue: In April we launched our proactive policing response, Operation Empower, where dedicated officers are tasked with identifying potential perpetrators who are displaying signs of predatory behaviour and to disrupt those who present a potential risk. Officers are also asked to be aware of anyone who may be vulnerable to ensure any immediate safeguarding concerns are met: Every week we also have an additional number of uniformed officers on the streets of the city and I would encourage anyone with any concerns to approach our patrols and speak to them.”

#AceWorldNews says according to latest RT News President Vladimir Putin has reassured a group of international journalists that athletes and spectators would have no problems at the Sochi Olympics in a discussion dominated by questions on Russia’s “gay propaganda” law and security.
While visiting Sochi ahead of the Winter Games, the Russian president shared his vision of the coming Olympics with journalists from America’s ABC News, Britain’s BBC, China’s CCTV, and the IOC’s own Around the Rings agency, as well as with Russia’s Channel One and Rossiya-1 TV channels.
“None of the guests of the Sochi Olympics will have any problems,” Putin said.
Despite Putin saying that the Olympics were meant to “depoliticize the most pressing international issues,” the majority of questions he had to answer dealt with politics, with much of the interview time being devoted to dispelling fears that LGBT visitors to Sochi would face any discrimination.
Putin reiterated that LGBT community representatives were absolutely welcome in Russia.
