More Crown courts to allow pre-recorded video evidence

first_imgAll Crown courts will be equipped by the end of the year to let vulnerable victims and witnesses give pre-recorded evidence, the government said today.Vulnerable witnesses and victims are defined as all child witnesses under 18 and any witness whose quality of evidence is likely to be diminished due to a mental disorder or physical disability, or their intelligence and social functioning is significantly impaired.Pre-recorded evidence is already available at 18 Crown courts across the country. From today, it will be available at all Crown courts in London and Kent, Basildon, Chelmsford and Stafford. The Ministry of Justice says the new service will be available in every Crown court by the end of the year.Judges will decide pre-recorded evidence on a case-by-case basis. The recording is carried out as close to the time of the offence as possible. Defence and prosecution lawyers, the judge and the defendant will be present in court during the pre-recording.Justice minister Alex Chalk said: ‘Vulnerable victims show great courage by coming forward, and it’s vital they can do so in the least traumatic way possible. This technology ensures they are protected and are able to give their best possible evidence, without reducing a defendant’s right to a fair trial.’The ministry said in today’s announcement that a Primark security guard from Kingston-upon-Thames was jailed last year after the four girls he sexually assaulted gave their evidence in a pre-recorded session prior to the trial.Dame Vera Baird, Victims’ Commissioner, welcomed the latest development. She said: ‘I have long been concerned that children who complained of victimisation should not spend a long part of their childhood beset with the worry of ultimately giving an account of what happened. If they can give their evidence at an early stage, they will then be free to get on with their lives. There is also a further point that therapy is often delayed whilst a complainant is a witness.’The ministry also mentioned that technology has been piloted for victims of sexual or modern slavery offences, in Liverpool, Leeds and Kingston-upon-Thames, which could be extended to other courts pending the pilot evaluation.last_img read more

LMWD board member resigns

first_img Share By ESTEVAN MEDRANOPort Isabel-South Padre Presspress@portisabelsouthpadre.comJanuary 22, 2015Nancy Martinez, member of the Laguna Madre Water District Board, has submitted her Letter of Resignation less than two months after being sworn in following a narrow victory over John Thobe for the position in the November election. The board officially accepted the document of notification January 8 at a formal meeting. Martinez cites personal reasons for the decision to part ways with the board, feeling she would not have the time needed to commit to the office after accepting a job position in Lubbock.This resignation would also allow her to be closer to her son who is attending school, according to Carlos Galvan, LMWD general manager. Galvan assured the public that the board can and will still perform with efficiency, making significant decisions, and serving the area despite the open office seat.“The board will continue to function as it should until we appoint a representative to the position,” Galvan said. He went on to say that no one has officially been chosen yet, but encourages anyone in the community who feels they can serve the area for the better to consider being a part of the board. “The board is open-minded if anyone is interested in the position.”As required by state law, the board has 90 days to appoint someone to occupy the position.Want the whole story?

Will Guyana have a replay screen in time, if at all?

first_imgWith the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women’s World T20 exactly a month away, there is no word on the progress as it relates to the acquisition of the replay screen for the Guyana matches set to be hosted at the Providence National Stadium. Calls to Minister of Social Cohesion with Responsibility for Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr. George Norton, as well as to the Public Relations Unit of the ministry remained unanswered while the same was the case with the Director of Sport, Christopher Jones.Seeking some clarification from the Guyana Cricket Board on the issue, Secretary of the Board, Anand Sanasie opted not to comment. It was reported in January of this year by the Department of Public Information that a private investor was collaborating with the government to acquire the said screen while Jones had stated that it is a requirement to have such screen in order to host these matches.Minister George Norton“The replay screen is directly going to be financed by the private sector. There is somebody from the private sector who has undertaken to do so,” the minister had stated. “The replay screen, we are working on that. The Director of Sport, Christopher Jones indicated to me that with a representative from the Ministry of Finance we are working to see if we can acquire it for the upcoming cricket,” General Manager of the National Stadium, Anthony Xavier pointed out adding…. “The screen we are hoping to get also gives scores giving a combination of a replay screen and a scoreboard and is the latest in the replay screen editions out of India.”Now, nine months later, according to a usually reliable source, Minister Norton approached Cabinet only recently to purchase the screen with the sum being approved in excess of $10 million dollars.But this information suggest that it would ‘be playing it close to the chest’ since the time to purchase, ship and install will take roughly around a month unless air shipped. One wonders whether the private individual who was initially going to assist has opted out of the agreement.Should Guyana not purchase a replay screen of its own, this will be one of the latest example of the government’s neglect of sports.last_img read more

Celine Dion unveils brand new collaboration with…Deadpool?

first_img20th Century Fox/Denise Truscello(LOS ANGELES) —  After teasing new music on her socials, Celine Dion has released a new ballad called “Ashes.”  As so many of her ballads are, it’s from a movie soundtrack.  Except this movie is — Deadpool 2.Celine gave an exclusive peek of the video to Good Morning America before releasing the entire clip online.  It begins with a familiar sight: Celine on stage, under a dramatic spotlight, belting out the song.Then, from behind the curtain, a graceful dancer in high heels strides out. It’s Deadpool, in his trademark red-and-black super-suit, save the stilettos.As the song swells, clips from the superhero movie sequel are shown, intercut with Deadpool performing all kinds of balletic moves, which makes us doubt that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds was the one inside the costume for those shots.Eventually, Celine ends the song, so moved that she’s lying on the floor. “That was amazing!” says Deadpool, who’s now sitting in the audience. “We need to do it again!”“OK,” says Celine.  “Why?”“It was too good,” DP notes. “This isn’t Titanic. This is Deadpool 2. You’re at an 11. We need you at a five, five-and-a-half, tops. Just phone it in.”“This thing,” Dion says, gesturing to her voice, “only goes to 11! So beat it, Spider-Man!”Deadpool then mumbles under his breath, “I knew I should have gotten *NSNYC.”Deadpool 2 opens May 18.  “Ashes” is available now.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
