INDIA: ‘ Journalist reportedly burned alive for reporting politicians corruption ‘

#AceNewsReport – INDIA:June.10: An Indian politician reportedly has been arrested and charged with murder after a journalist covering his alleged corruption was burned alive.

Jagendra Singh was set on fire by police and men sent to his house by Uttar Pradesh dairy development minister Ram Murti Verma on June 1, Singh’s family claimed Tuesday, according to the Times of India.

“They had a heated argument with my father, caught hold of him, poured petrol over his body and set him on fire,” Raghvendra Singh told the newspaper. Singh died from his injuries on Monday and authorities have now filed charges against Verma and four other men.

But police have denied any wrongdoing and claim that Singh tried to commit suicide.

“There was a case against Jagendra Singh. We tried to arrest him but he committed suicide,” a Shahjehanpur police spokesperson told IBN Live, without specifying the allegations.

USA Gov.Report: ‘ Female Veteran’s Commit Suicide at 6-times Rate of other Women ‘

#AceNewsReport – USA:June.08: Female veterans commit suicide at nearly six times the rate of other women, new government research shows.

It approaches the rate of male veterans. That’s alarming because, in general, men are far more likely to kill themselves. Also alarming: Nobody is sure why.

It might have more to do with who joins the military than with what they experience while serving.

CHINA: ‘ DRAMATIC RISE OF SUICIDES & ANTI-CORRUPTION CAMPAIGN ‘

#AceNewsServices – Nov.26 – CHINA – On November 13, the deputy commissar of the People’s Liberation Army Navy, the deputy commissar of the PLA Navy, Vice Admiral Ma Faxiang, is believed to have committed suicide less than three months after another senior naval officer fell to his death, people close to the armed forces branch said.

Ma leapt from a building at a naval complex in Beijing on Thursday, a source told the Sunday Morning Post yesterday.

According to People to incomplete statistics, in January 2014 to September, at least 32 officials ruled out suicide or homicide possible events by the media publicly reported to the provincial and ministerial level officials, department level, down to the county level, section level, covering almost every level.

Use more suicide jumping, hanging and other means.

Most can not clear the cause of suicide, mostly depression, stress and other statements summarize.

Depression or high pressure might be factors behind the deaths of many Chinese officials, but they cannot fully explain the increase in suicides by Chinese officials in recent years—as early as 2005, a survey of 200 middle-aged government officials found that nearly 50 percent of them were “mentally unhealthy.” Indeed, of the thirteen officials who killed themselves in 2014 and for whom official explanations of the cause of death were available, only five were said to have suffered from depression or high pressure, and at least six of them were associated with corruption-related investigations.

An examination of the suicide cases clearly pinpoints the impact of the anti-corruption campaign launched by the new leadership (which took over in November 2012).

During the period 2011-12, a total of forty officials reportedly killed themselves.

But since 2013, at least eighty-eight officials have done the same.

‘ PALESTINIAN BUS DRIVER FOUND HANGED SPARKS RIOTS OVER CIRCUMSTANCES OF DEATH ‘

#AceNewsServices – JERUSALEM – Nov.18 – A Palestinian bus driver has been found hanged inside his vehicle at a depot in Jerusalem, with the Israeli police saying the man committed suicide, while the driver’s family claim he was lynched by Israelis RT reported.

The bus driver, who has been identified as Youssef al-Ramouni from al-Tur in East Jerusalem, worked for Egged, an Israeli company.

Other drivers were, according to the Ma’an news agency, alarmed to see al-Ramouni’s bus parked in the terminal late on Sunday evening, when it was supposed to be out on its route. They entered the vehicle and discovered al-Ramouni’s body hanging from a steel bar.

Israeli police say a preliminary investigation showed no sign of an assault.

“The bus driver committed suicide, there is no other indication other than it was a suicide case,” said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, according to Reuters.

Al-Ramouni’s relatives are not convinced, arguing that Youssef, the father of two young children, could not possibly have killed himself.

“I saw the body last night and I saw bruises and marks that he was beaten up,” al-Ramouni’s brother Louy told Reuters. “There were marks of fingers on the body and also on his back there was a bruise, as if he was hit by a hard object.”

The family supports their allegations with pictures of the dead body, which are currently circulating online.

The body is now in Abu Kabir Forensic Insitutute in Tel Aviv, where it was transferred for an autopsy. Al-Ramouni’s family wants a Palestinian pathologist to be present, but it’s not yet clear if this will be allowed.

Al-Ramouni’s colleagues have, according to the Haaretz, said that Palestinian bus drivers have long been targets of attacks by Israelis.

Rumors of the driver’s death in a possible assault spread across the Palestinian media, sparking riots in several neighborhoods of Jerusalem – At-tur, Ras al-Amud and Abu Dis, the Times of Israel reported. Palestinian youths hurled stones and firebombs at police, who responded with stun grenades and tear gas.

The Israeli media have meanwhile reported that a Jewish man, aged 32, was stabbed with a screwdriver also on Sunday evening.

The man managed to make it to a police station and was eventually taken to hospital.

Clarence allegedly smothered them at the family’s London home in April, before attempting suicide.

Her husband Gary was in the couple’s native South Africa at the time.

The children all had type 2 spinal muscular atrophy, a condition which affects muscle strength.

Defence lawyer Jim Sturman said that for Clarence, “caring for three children with this condition was exhausting, distressing, debilitating and turned out to be overwhelming.”

Prosecutor Zoe Johnson told a hearing at London’s Central Criminal Court that Clarence “killed her three children because she wanted to end their suffering.”

Johnson said prosecutors accepted Clarence was depressed, which amounted to an “abnormality of mind.”

Clarence is due to be sentenced Nov. 14 and is likely to be sent to a psychiatric hospital.
