(RIYADH, S.A.) G20 Briefing Report: The world needs to strengthen cooperation to reduce land degradation, habitat loss and coral reef conservation, said Saudi Deputy Minister for Environment Dr. Osama Faqeeha on Tuesday according to Arab Media News #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.17: Speaking at a G20 meeting briefing on the highlights of the Environment Working Group, Faqeeha underlined the importance of preserving the environment for a sustainable future: He said that the Saudi presidency is pursuing collective efforts and taking concrete actions to safeguard the planet: The deputy minister said conserving the earth’s environment meant protecting marine and terrestrial environments and working towards reducing marine pollution such as plastic littering: ” Around 12 million hectares of land are lost annually due to land degradation, including deforestation,” he added: Moreover, land degradation affects about 60 percent of people directly or indirectly and contributes to massive habitat and ecosystem service losses, he said, adding that deforestation and other land use are also responsible for 24 percent of greenhouse gas emissions: G20 Saudi Arabia is leading the international community in working toward minimizing land degradation and deforestation to conserve biodiversity and meet climate goals:

Faqeeha also spoke about preserving the oceans, saying that the human activity and climate change endanger the survival of coral reefs, on which about 50 percent of the world’s marine life depends.

Without concrete action, it is estimated that “a significant share of coral reefs are at risk,” he said. Coral reefs are under constant threat from pollution and habitat destruction, therefore conserving them “urgently important to ensure protection of our ecosystem.”

Due to the urgency of this issue, Saudi Arabia intends to build on the Japanese G20 Presidency’s efforts and advance steps on the preservation of the ecosystem.

Furthermore, climate change is one of the most pressing global challenges. The urgency to act increases as the world population continues to grow and emissions rise.

The Saudi G20 presidency is committed to advancing efforts for managing emissions in all sectors and improving synergies between adaptation and mitigation actions, including nature-based solutions such as reforestation and protecting and restoring marine resources.

“There has been significant appreciation of Saudi Arabia on environment preservation,” said the deputy minister.

Addressing the subject of “Securing a Future for the World’s Coral Reefs” later, Carlos M. Duarte, a professor of marine science at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), talked about the Kingdom’s coral reefs in the Red Sea.

“Red Sea coral reefs are the best preserved in the world and remarkably beautiful,” he said, adding that Red Sea is very salty, which protects coral reefs, which often called the tropical forests of the oceans.

Duarte said that the northern Red Sea provides a globally unique refuge for coral reefs.

Regarding securing the future of coral reefs, he added that by the turn of the century, about half of the coral reefs were lost. “We should not accept the loss of the coral reefs and grieve, but there is a need to act and strengthen cooperation to preserve them, not only through green recovery plan but blue recovery initiatives as well.”

He suggested some measures to preserve coral reefs, including resilience-based management, expansion of mangroves, growing and expanding habitats and restoring marine habitats.

(COVENTRY, U.K.) Crown Court Report: Two dangerous men convicted today Mon.09: November for killing and dismembering a Dudley woman in 2019 and also found guilty of 4-rapes, attempted rape and threaten to kill #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.09: Nathan Maynard-Ellis, 30, and his boyfriend, 25-year-old David Leesley, were found guilty at Coventry Crown Court for killing and dismembering Julia Rawson: Maynard-Ellis was also found guilty of four rapes, an attempted rape and a threat to kill:

By chance on 11 May 2019, Julia Rawson met Nathan Maynard-Ellis when she took the wrong bus home and ended up at the Bottle and Cork Public House, New Mill Street in Dudley. They chatted and she went back to his flat in Mission Drive, Tipton, by taxi. At the apartment, Maynard-Ellis and Leesley killed Miss Rawson, dismembered her body and disposed of her remains in black bags in land adjacent to a nearby canal: Later, Julia Rawson was reported missing, police discovered her body parts five weeks later. Police traced her last steps to the defendants’ flat. Forensic evidence placed Julia Rawson at the flat, and both men were arrested for her murder.

During the police investigation, an ex-partner of Maynard-Ellis came forward to reveal that she had been raped and sexually assaulted by him many years ago; and he threatened to kill her: The account she gave provided striking similarities in details discovered by the police surrounding the murder, dismemberment and disposal of Julia Rawson, which included a link in time between the date of the break-up of their relationship and her death:

James L Francis of the CPS said: “The details that led to Julia Rawson’s death remain unknown, but the facts support the Crown’s case that Nathan Maynard-Ellis and David Leesley are extremely dangerous individuals and were responsible for her death. They lied many times throughout the investigation to avoid detection for the allegation of murder, but we were able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that both Maynard-Ellis and Leesley murdered Julia Rawson, their conviction will protect others from future harm. I want to pay tribute to the surviving victim in this case for the strength and determination that she has shown to ensure justice was served for her and Julia Rawson. Thanks to her bravery, others will now be protected from these dangerous men.”

CASE NOTES:

While only the defendants know precisely what transpired in that flat on 12 May 2019, forensic evidence supported the prosecution case that Julia Rawson had been murdered in that flat and both men had tried to hide the crime: At the onset of the investigation, police discovered that the defendants’ had removed furniture and replaced sections of the living room carpet. However, washed traces of Julia Rawson’s blood were found on the floor under the new underlay and carpet. When the sofa in the living room was examined, they found staining along one edge of a cushion with blood that had come from Julia Rawson: The defendants also disposed of their clothing in a garden incinerator at the home of Maynard-Ellis’ mother. Blood from Julia Rawson was found on a pair of burnt grey fleece shorts:

The CPS was able to prove the case as a result of the presence of multiple strands of evidence that included details provided by a complaint made by an ex-partner of Maynard-Ellis, CCTV footage showing the movements of the victim and Maynard-Ellis, scientific evidence proving the presence of the victim’s blood on floorboards inside the defendants’ flat, expert evidence detailing the examination of the dismembered remains of the victim and admissions made by Maynard-Ellis and lies told by Leesley:

(WARWICK, U.K) Court Report: A man who ‘ impriosned & raped a woman ‘ over a person of 32-hours has been convicted of 10-counts of ‘ rape & false imprisonment ‘ on Friday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Nov.09: On 6 November 2020 at Warwick Crown Court, a jury found that Chukwudi Bright Olowo, 30,  who had previously been found by a judge to be mentally ‘unfit to plead’, had committed the acts, in a prosecution relating to 10 counts of rape and one count of false imprisonment: The victim attended Olowo’s home but soon realised she did not wish to remain in the property: She attempted to leave but was falsely imprisoned by Olowo who subjected her to an ordeal lasting thirty-two hours during which he raped her numerous times:

The victim had been reported missing by her family as her absence was out of character: While officers were trying to locate the victim, they spoke to a takeaway delivery driver who told officers he had delivered food to Olowo’s address several days earlier and had the door slammed in his face by the occupant after delivering the food and before being paid: Officers accompanied the driver to the door of the address in question and when the door was opened, the victim took her chance to flee and told officers what happened. Olowo was found hiding in a cupboard by police: Olowo denied rape and false imprisonment but was found to have committed the acts. He will be sentenced on 20 November 2020:

Tamina Greaves of the CPS said: “I would like to express my gratitude to the victim for her incredible bravery and courage in helping us bring the defendant to justice. She was the victim of what can only be described as a harrowing experience, which has unsurprisingly had a devastating impact on her life. The defendant is undoubtedly an extremely dangerous individual who poses a serious risk to women, and this finding is the first step in ensuring justice for the victim.”

(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.”

(LIVERPOOL) Crown Court Report: A man who was acting as an armourer to criminals and storing the weapons and materials to make explosives at the home of a vulnerable man he claimed to be caring for has been jailed for eight years on Monday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.20: The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said that Michael Green, 31, of Micawber Street in the Toxteth area of Liverpool, had a detailed knowledge of the world of firearms and munitions: He had acquired firearms, ammunition, and items that could be used to construct explosives: Police raids at his home and the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area uncovered rifles, ammunition and materials to make explosives: The raids also revealed equipment that could be used to adapt or engineer weapons, together with books, manuals and diagrams of the same nature: The CPS said that Green was an armourer who had weapons, ammunitions and the  wherewithal to make explosives so that he could provide them to whoever wanted them to commit serious crimes: He pleaded guilty three charges of possession of a firearm and ammunition without a certificate and seven charges of being in possession of an explosive substance: Today (19 October 2020) at Liverpool Crown Court, Michael Green was sentenced to eight years in jail.

On 6 July 2018: Police executed a raid on the home of a vulnerable man in the Liverpool area. They found a whole host of weapons in a wardrobe in a locked room at the flat: Green’s fingerprints were on many of the weapons. Police went on to raid Green’s home in Micawber Close and found equipment and materials to make explosives: The man, who was then 52, told police that the room had been locked and used by Michael Green, who was acting as his carer: Green also used the details of the man to make purchases from Amazon and Paypal of items connected to weapons. One of the giveaways that it was Green buying the items was that he also used the same details to buy personalised items for members of his family.

On 15 July 2018: Green attended at St Anne Street Police Station and was arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm without a certificate and remained silent. He went on to deny the items were his and blamed the vulnerable male but the overwhelming forensic evidence led to him eventually accepting his guilt:

Senior Crown prosecutor Rachael Barber, of CPS Mersey Cheshire, said: “Michael Green had accumulated a wide range of potentially lethal weapons, ammunition and explosives in order to supply the criminal underworld: “He exploited the vulnerability of the man he was supposed to be caring for by storing these dangerous items in his home: ” Guns, ammunition and explosives bring death, destruction and chaos to our communities. They are the tools of the criminals who also bring drugs and other forms of criminality to our streets: ” Green eventually pleaded guilty, but not immediately. He has now been sentenced for his part in the dangerous and deadly world of organised crime.”

`Classified Documents leaked last summer by #NSA whistle-blower #Edward-Snowden reveal information about `Call Information'

AceSecurityNews says that classified documents leaked last summer by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed that the intelligence agency currently compels at least three major telephone providers – Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T – to turn over call information on millions of Americans.

Among that information, known as metadata, is the duration of the call, the time the call was made, who the phone call was to, and where it originated.

Snowden disclosed a trove of secret information about US intelligence activity to the press, but the collection of phone metadata has been perhaps the most controversial, in part because of its sheer breadth.

Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) was among those hoping to find more when, at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, he asked Alexander how the metadata is collected and stored.

“Chairman, I think there are three options that you put on the table,” Alexander replied.

“You mentioned the government holding it, the ISPs holding it. I think there is yet another option where we look at what data you actually need and only get that data.

“Can we come up with a capability that just gets those that are predicated on a terrorist communication? I think you have those three options that I have put on the table,” he continued. “Those are three of the ones that I think need to be clearly discussed and the merits from both sides, they have pros and cons on the agility that you would have with the program.”

Alexander was referring to possible reforms to the NSA set forth by US intelligence and law enforcement leaders earlier this week.

US President Obama, who has said he is open to reforming the surveillance programs after public scrutiny, tasked the attorney general and other administration officials to propose theories on how the phone metadata collection program could remain in use.

The most radical proposal, according to anonymous sources who spoke to the Wall Street Journal, would be to entirely abandon the collection of telephony metadata.

Officials are also considering turning that vast datalogue over to a government agency other than the NSA – either the FBI or Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, perhaps.

Alexander’s testimony seemed to indicate that the scenario the administration is taking most seriously is leaving the trove metadata with the phone company, with the NSA only forcing the company to handover information about numbers thought to be involved in a web of terrorism.
