She still must be accompanied by a “guardian” at all times, since her house arrest is extended between home and work, but she is no longer obliged to wear the G4S electronic ankle monitor . Tatour is still prohibited from all access to the internet. Even these slightly more forgiving conditions represent a grave injustice considering the absence of any compelling case. During an astonishingly vacuous series of prosecutorial hearings that ended last September the lead prosecutor, Alina Hardak, failed to produce even one shred of evidence that the poet’s words incited anyone to do anything at all, much less acts of terrorism and violence. At this point, the charges should have been dropped, but were not. Since then, Tatour had the chance to testify in her own defense in three separate hearings on Nov. 17 and 23, 2016, and Jan. 26, 2017. Tatour’s sworn testimony at those three hearings largely focused on illuminating the significance of the four “incriminatingitems listed in the indictment, namely her Youtube video poemResist my people, Resist Them,” the Facebook status calling for intifada on behalf of al-Aqsa mosque, and a picture of Israa Abed a young Arab woman who was shot by soldiers in the bus station in Afula, accompanied by a profile picture reading: “I am the next martyr.

But the reduction in living standards for the working poor is beginning to already show that some people of working age are reduced to destitution. Thank you for giving way. On that point, one of the most heartbreaking aspects of this is that 73% of working parents already go without a meal during the school holidays the feed their children. Is that not an indictment on exactly where we're going wrong right now is a country and society? It is and it could not be better timed because those of you who followed very closely the Archbishop of Canterbury's Christmas message, it gave one example of feeding Birkenhead where a family were laying their child into one of the waste bins of the supermarket to scavenge for food and then rescuing the child out to see what food they had.

At the same time, the president's political advisers fear any sudden change in his rhetoric could open him to charges that he's abandoning his promise to speak plainly and openly to the American people. Both sides say a gradual shift in the president's rhetoric over time is possible. In recent years the phraseradical Islamic terrorism” become a rallying cry for conservatives. President Barack Obama, following the example of President George W. Bush before him, pointedly avoided saying it—citing expert opinion that the wording risks alienating moderate Muslims who hear it as an indictment of their religion. Obama preferred the phraseviolent extremism,” which makes no reference to a specific religion. McMaster expressed great disdain for that approach, according to a senior National Security Council official. “He understands that pretending that it's not something within Islam that's causing this—you can't pretend that, but you can enlist the people within Islam who agree with you,” said the official.

So it did not help when her head of policy said this on PIPS. Benefits are being given to people who take pills at home, but we want to get the money to people who are really disabled. Today he apologised for any offence. As it stands the changes will become law without a vote but the Lib Dems and Labour will try to force one. It's a real indictment on this government that they are prepared yet again to be targeting chronically ill and disabled people in the way that they are.

That scandal has amongst others seen the head of the biggest company in the country, Samsung, arrested. This corruption scandal gets bigger and bigger. It does. And this week we will see a culmination, I think, when we see the indictment of some very senior figures, the formal indictment. Probably including the acting head of Samsung. J Wiley is currently under arrest but he will probably face a formal charge to businesses are to close in this country.

How bad is it, Michael? It's not great. That's a strongly worded statement there, an indictment of what is going on at the moment. It's a period of time, they need to get number of decisions right, they need someone in charge to steady the ship, it's not great on the field, they have won one in seven. It is very poor. And off the field they've got a number of positions they need to fill.

He says, "central savings may have been secured, but significant damage has been done." That, again, is from the senior official looking after public accounts in this country. It is a damning indictment about what has happened with regard to cuts in social care. The impact on users and the knock-on consequences to the NHS and the damage done there with the horrible term "bed-blocking" which I don't like, elderly people who need to come out of their bed in hospital into care in the community, not having that care because it simply isn't available.

This is due to a Shin Bet security service decision, according to the accepted procedure in such cases, whereby the accused present themselves at an Israel Defense Forces coordination command center, from where they are taken to court by the police. Recently, though, the police decided to cancel such escorts and are demanding that the accused turn to private security companies to provide a security escort, at their own expense. The courts have begun canceling indictments in cases where the accused does not reach the courtroom due to the lack of a security escort ... Ramle Magistrate’s Court Judge Dr. Ami Kobo was more critical of the police when dealing with a Palestinian who failed to appear for a court appearance ... The judge decided to immediately cancel the indictment. “I am of the opinion that demanding of an accused person who enters Israel illegally, seemingly in order to find work, to pay a security company – which will accompany him while in Israel to attend a court hearing – is an unreasonable demand under these circumstances,” Kobo wrote in his decision.
