Gay British man avoids extradition to Dubai | Law | The Guardian
Court finds the United Arab Emirates failed to give sufficient assurances that Michael Halliday’s human rights would be respected. A gay man has avoided extradition to Dubai – where homosexuality is outlawed – after a London court ruled there was a risk he would be tortured and was unlikely to receive a fair trial on theft charges. In a strongly worded ruling, a judge at Westminster magistrates court said the United Arab Emirates had not given the court sufficient assurances that Michael Halliday’s human rights would be respected. In district judge Jeremy Coleman’s ruling, which sets a significant precedent, he said: “The trial, treatment and conditions of those accused or convicted of criminal offences in the UAE is still the subject of complaint and is often alleged to fall well below the required standards … Taking into account Mr Halliday’s own circumstances, I cannot be satisfied that he would not be at significant risk.

The Guardian view on the criminal courts charge: unjust, ineffective and mean-spirited | Editorial | Comment is free | The Guardian
The consequences have been entirely predictable – and quite possibly intentional. Breadline defendants are choosing to plead guilty and pay the £150 rather than run the risk of an even higher charge by pleading not guilty. Not surprisingly, and rightly, lawyers and reformers are incensed. The Law Society and the Bar Council, plus lobby groups like the Howard League for Penal Reform, say that defendants are pleading guilty even when they are innocent. Dozens of magistrates across England have resigned rather than participate in the system, including one who was initially suspended for offering to pay a destitute defendant’s charge himself. Last month in New Zealand, the current lord chief justice, Lord Thomas, said that the new charges were “imperilling” Magna Carta rights of access to justice.

Antarctic ice sheets face catastrophic collapse without deep emissions cuts | Environment | The Guardian
[ emotionally, people are not there to change ] [S]teep cuts to emissions during the next decade are the only way to avoid a catastrophic collapse of Antarctic ice sheets and associated sea-level rise that will continue for thousands of years. [...] This would trigger a collapse that would go on for thousands of years, raising sea levels by 0.6 metres to 3 metres by the year 2300 depending on how high manmade greenhouse gas emissions remain. Our descendants living in the year 5000 will continue to suffer the consequences of today’s fossil fuel burning, as sea levels continue to rise up to nine metres above current levels. [...] The global sea level has risen roughly 20cm over the last century and is already causing problems for communities in low-lying areas. Only a little of this has so far been caused by melting ice; most comes from the expansion of oceans as they warm. [...] Antarctica’s two ice sheets, east and west, cover an area the size of the contiguous US and Mexico combined

Working-class Americans feel screwed. I heard it across the entire country | US news | The Guardian
Donald Trump has exposed the opportunity gulf between those who make policy and those who live it – turning immigrants into scapegoats in the process [...] The disappointment, although often wrapped in anger over immigration, is at its core about diminished opportunity. It is consistent with the economic reality that has persisted over the last three decades: except for the very rich, Americans haven’t seen their wealth increase. The people I talked to are not entirely wrong; their particular job prospects and their particular wealth have been harmed. [...] The angry are mostly people who work with their hands, who feel stuck in a vise tightening from two sides: there is a greater number of people looking for the same jobs and there are fewer jobs available, since many of these jobs having moved overseas.

BBC One - Panorama, Tough Justice in Britain - Texas Style
As the UK's imprisonment rate remains the highest in western Europe, Panorama joins Michael Gove - the man in charge of British prisons - on a fact-finding mission in Texas. 'Hang 'em high' Texas is not the first place you might look for lessons in criminal justice - they execute more people and lock up more offenders than anywhere else in America. But now this conservative state is the unlikely centre of a rehabilitation-led revolution in prison reform that's sweeping through the US. Crime is down, prisoner numbers have fallen and, on top of this, they have cut costs. Are there valuable lessons to be learned here, and are UK politicians really ready to dole out some Texan justice?

Britain's water crisis | Nick Davies | Environment | The Guardian
The immediate cause of the early drying out at the source of the Ouse was simply that there was not enough water in the underground aquifer on which it feeds. But that turns out to be part of something bigger. In March 2013, the local branch of the Environment Agency reported that, depending on conditions, there are now years when they can extract water from the Ouse on no more than 94 days. For the rest of the year, abstractors can use water that has been stored during the wet months in the big reservoir at Ardingly, and they can pump up water through boreholes sunk into the underground aquifers. This in turn reduces the amount of water that bubbles up into the river and its tributaries. The Environment Agency has stopped issuing new abstraction licences for the river. Meanwhile, during the summer months, nearly half of what we like to describe as a river is, in fact, recycled waste water and sewage. [...] [south-east and south] “serious water stress”

Jörg Kachelmann: Kommentar zum Urteil von Gisela Friedrichsen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Der Springer-Konzern soll eine Rekordentschädigung an Jörg Kachelmann zahlen - gut so. Kachelmanns Verletzungen werden davon zwar nicht heilen. Boulevardmedien aber werden nun vorsichtiger sein, bevor sie Verleumdungskampagnen starten. [...] die Verletzungen, die auch die Justiz Kachelmann zugefügt hat, heilen nicht. Man denke nur an den unsäglichen Prozess vor dem Landgericht Mannheim, das, obwohl massive Zweifel an der Aussage des angeblichen Opfers bestanden, im Sexualleben des Angeklagten herumwühlte, als handle es sich bei ihm um den gefährlichsten Triebtäter Deutschlands überhaupt. [...] Menschen, denen ihr "gutes Recht" versagt blieb, entwickeln sich oft zu Querulanten und gehen ihrer Umwelt auf die Nerven, was ihr Unglück noch steigert. Andere werden darüber krank, weil sie ihr Leben lang mit diesem Schicksal hadern.

"Steueroase Deutschland" von Markus Meinzer: Die Oase lebt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Im Kampf gegen Steueroasen inszeniert sich Deutschland gerne als Vorreiter. Ein neues Buch hält dagegen: Reiche Steuerhinterzieher haben auch hierzulande leichtes Spiel - sie müssen nur ins richtige Bundesland ziehen. [...] Sicher ist: Von der international eingeforderten Transparenz in Steuerfragen ist Deutschland an vielen Stellen selbst weit entfernt. Haftstrafen gegen reiche Prominente wie Hoeneß blieben bislang die Ausnahme, häufiger kommt es zu umstrittenen Bewährungsstrafen wie im Fall von Ex-Postchef Klaus Zumwinkel. Beim Durchschnittsbürger droht damit nach Ansicht von Meinzer ein fataler Eindruck: "Wer wiederholt beim Schwarzfahren für 60 Euro erwischt wurde, wandert in den Knast. Wer aber Hunderttausende Euro hinterzogen hat, scheint schlimmstenfalls - falls Zuschauer da sein sollten - mit einer Bewährungsstrafe davonzukommen."

Saudi Arabia will need deep pockets if it is to win its oil war with US | Larry Elliott | World news | The Guardian
Riyadh’s plan to raise $27bn from bond sales is a sign that its economic battle with United States is taking its toll [...] Saudi Arabia is an expensive country to run for the House of Saud. Fearful of Iran, it has imported the latest military kit to show that it is the Middle East’s regional superpower. Higher defence spending has also been needed to fund action in Yemen and to counter the threat from Islamic State. In addition, Saudi Arabia has an unemployment problem that it fears may become a social unrest problem. Two-thirds of the population is under 30 and the unemployment rate for the 16-29 age group is 29%. [...] [IMF] estimates that Saudi Arabia is on course to run a budget deficit of 20% of national income this year. [...] oil accounts for almost 90% of Saudi Arabia’s revenues, [...] Saudis are now embroiled in a long – and expensive – war of attrition. And one they may not win. // &! /bbc.in/1gmHu0V

GSK investigator warns over China - BBC News
A British corporate investigator who was jailed in Shanghai in relation to a massive corruption case against British pharmaceuticals giant GlaxoSmithKline has told the BBC he was shocked that he and his wife received a custodial sentence, while senior GSK staff convicted of more serious charges did not. At the time the company did however pay fines of around $500m. In an exclusive interview, Peter Humphrey also told the BBC's China Editor Carrie Gracie that the British government must educate companies to the risks they face in China.

As Tim Cook criticizes Indiana, Apple imposes labor discrimination in its own backyard | PandoDaily
Using background checks on construction workers to discriminate against those charged with or convicted of felonies is reportedly very rare in the construction industry, one of the industries that provide opportunities for ex-convicts to get back on their feet in life. Discrimination against ex-offenders is a major ongoing problem that exacerbates poverty, inequality and racism; in an incarceration-mad state like California, Apple’s policy imposed on construction companies it hires means worsening inequality and cycles of poverty for a problem that disproportionately affects people of color. In 2012, the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced a new crackdown on illegal employment discrimination against people with criminal records, which are only permitted depending on the nature of the job.

Here’s how reporters are reacting to Snowden’s revelations | PandoDaily
The global surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden have caused journalists to change how they operate, question what the government knows about them, and consider abandoning investigative reporting, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center. A significant number of the journalists surveyed said they had changed their behavior, whether it’s how they store sensitive files (49 percent), how they communicate with other journalists (29 percent), whether they’ve reached out to a source (13 percent), or pursued a specific story (2 percent). Many are also convinced the government is gathering information about them. Some 64 percent of journalists believed intelligence agencies had “probably collected data” about them. (The other 36 percent, as “InfoSec Taylor Swift” joked, must not read the news.)

Video ""Nein sagen" reicht nicht - Vergewaltigungsopfer fordern neues Strafrecht" | Kontraste | ARD Mediathek
Wann wurde eine Frau vergewaltigt? Nur weil sie "Nein" sagt oder der Mann ihr die Kleider vom Leib reißt, gilt sie nach deutschem Strafrecht noch lange nicht als Opfer einer Vergewaltigung. Absurd, aber das Gesetz verlangt körperliche Gewalt und Gegenwehr. Angst zählt nicht - bis heute. Jetzt fordern Experten eine Reform des Vergewaltigungsparagraphen im Strafrecht. Kritiker warnen indes vor einem Anstieg der Falsch-Beschuldigungen.

Barrett Brown: Fünf Jahre Haft für Anonymous-Unterstützer - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[Bullying move and Example Case. A warning shot.] Mit dem Urteil gegen Brown, der zuvor für Titel wie "Vanity Fair" oder "The Guardian" geschrieben hatte, setzen die US-Behörden ein deutliches Signal an die Medien, so die Einschätzung von "Heise Online". Der Schuldspruch solle die Gefährlichkeit von Kontakten zu Anonymous verdeutlichen. In der Urteilsbegründung werde darauf verwiesen, dass sich der erste Verfassungszusatz zum Thema Meinungsfreiheit nicht auf die kriminelle Veröffentlichung von Links erstreckt. Brown selbst kommentierte das Urteil mit Galgenhumor. "Die US-Regierung hat heute entschieden, dass ich bei der Untersuchung des Cyber-Industriekomplexes so gute Arbeit geleistet habe, dass sie mich nun den Industriekomplex Gefängnis untersuchen lässt." &! https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2015/01/british-spy-agency-considers-journalists-threat-vacuums-their-emails << governance, oversight, accountability and investigative journalism at danger. &! bit.ly/1Bm0Qqf &! bit.ly/1CjfFzj

Book Excerpt: Understanding the New Jim Crow | BillMoyers.com
The following is an excerpt from Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness. - "Today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African-Americans. Once you’re labeled a felon, the old forms of discrimination— employment discrimination, housing discrimination, denial of the right to vote, denial of educational opportunity, denial of food stamps and other public benefits and exclusion from jury service — are suddenly legal. ...We have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it." - Michelle Alexander

BBC News - MI5, MI6 and GCHQ 'spied on lawyers'
[P]olicies allowing staff to access confidential communications between lawyers and their clients, official documents have revealed. [...] An MI5 document said legally privileged material may be used "just like any other item of intelligence". [...] Families involved with the Belhaj case brought a claim to the IPT over concerns that their private discussions with legal charity Reprieve and law firm Leigh Day were being intercepted. The families have brought litigation about the kidnappings and allege that any interception of privileged communications has infringed their right to a fair trial. [...] "We hope the tribunal will tell the government in no uncertain terms that this conduct is completely unacceptable." [...] "It's now clear the intelligence agencies have been eavesdropping on lawyer-client conversations for years. "This raises troubling implications for the whole British justice system. [...] correspondence between a person and their lawyer is confidential".

Ilija Trojanow: Über den überwachten Menschen und das widerständige Wort - Literatur - derStandard.at › Kultur
Die Existenz der Massenüberwachung wird nicht mehr bestritten, wie noch vor wenigen Jahren, als nicht wenige Kritiker des Buches Angriff auf die Freiheit. Sicherheitswahn, Überwachungsstaat und der Abbau bürgerlicher Rechte von meiner Koautorin Juli Zeh und mir Übertreibung und Hysterie vorwarfen. Wir wissen, dass die NSA zwischen drei und vier Milliarden Menschen überwacht, nämlich alle digitalen Bürger und Bürgerinnen des Planeten. [...] Wir wissen, dass wir dieser Überwachung (fast) nicht entgehen können, auch nicht durch Verschlüsselung unserer Kommunikation, denn bei allen marktüblichen Programmen ist eine kleine Hintertür offen gelassen, durch die Geheimdienste hineinschlüpfen können, [...] Die demokratische Verfasstheit ist weder in Stein gemeißelt noch genetisch einprogrammiert. [...] behördlicher Vertuschung: "nationale Sicherheit" [...] demokratischen Gesellschaft angreift.

America Must End Its Paranoid War on Hackers | WIRED
"Our privileged attorney-client communications were routinely and illegally opened by the prison; when weev was interrogated by the FBI (while being denied an attorney) about one of his communications to me and complained about his privileged attorney-client mail being opened, one of the FBI agents told him that they “didn’t give a fuck about the attorney client privilege.” Unfortunately, this attitude is typical of many FBI agents; generally they believe they are above the law they are entrusted to enforce. [...] I’ve heard similar tales of nasty, brutish, and petty treatment when dealing with the U.S. penal system from other hackers I know who were thrown in jail for non-violent offenses. [...] Hackers are the new communists for the DOJ.

BBC News - 'Deeply elitist UK locks out diversity at top'
http://bit.ly/1lubeuO - The interests of those who dominate British society are disparate; indeed, they often conflict with one another. The establishment includes politicians who make laws; media barons who set the terms of debate; businesses and financiers who run the economy; police forces that enforce a law that is rigged in favour of the powerful. The establishment is where these interests and worlds intersect, either consciously or unconsciously. It is unified by a common mentality, which holds that those at the top deserve their power and their ever-growing fortunes, and which might be summed up by the advertising slogan "Because I'm worth it". This is the mentality that has driven politicians to pilfer expenses, businesses to avoid tax, and City bankers to demand ever greater bonuses while plunging the world into economic disaster. All of these things are facilitated – even encouraged – by laws that are geared to cracking down on the smallest of misdemeanours committed ...

You’re 16. You’re a Pedophile. You Don’t Want to Hurt Anyone. What Do You Do Now? — Matter — Medium
Elizabeth Letourneau, founding director of the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse at Johns Hopkins University, told me. “A lot of these guys don’t want to be sexually abusing children.” We first met at her office one dreary afternoon last February. Out the window, whose sill was flanked by framed photos of her two sons, you could see rain gently blanketing downtown Baltimore. The center’s core mission is “to try to change the way the nation views child sexual abuse, as something that is preventable.” From a desk piled high with books and manila folders full of journal articles, she continued: “We say we’re really concerned about sex offending and we really don’t want children to be sexually offended and we don’t want adults to be raped, but we don’t do anything to prevent it. We put most of our energy into criminal justice, which means that the offense has already happened and often many offenses have already happened.” - via http://bit.ly/1kxvM4S
