The site lets multiple charities benefit from an aggregated clothing collection and single online shop.Click Collection offers a national collection service from donors’ homes, currently excluding Northern Ireland and Islands. Each item is tracked to its supporter and the charity they wish to support, so sales are credited appropriately. Donors get to see exactly how much their items raised, and charities receive summary reports. Costs and profits are therefore shared according to their sales.Click Collection charges a 5% management fee on sales generated. Its founders say that they expect to generate a similar profit for participating charities to that achieved by average High Street charity shops. It makes no charge to charities for joining the service.Clothes are sorted into retail and wholesale streams in order to maximise charities’ income. Items are then added to the service’s online shop. Purchasers are given the option to make a donation with Gift Aid as part of the payment process.Given that the range available will always be different, shoppers can use the site’s My Shopper service to request to be notified when an item in the right size or of the right kind is added to the site.Click Collection believes it is extending the opportunities of fundraising from donated clothes to a wider range of charities and to a larger audience of shoppers, who will no longer be restricted by the items available in charity shops where they live. It also hopes to overcome the widespread problem of theft of charity bags from the pavement.

Radio station manager freed, two other journalists still held

first_img Abdirahman Mohammed Hiudeyfi, the manager of privately-owned Radio Somaliweyn, was released on 27 January, after being held for 14 days. But Radio Somaliweyn reporter Bashir Mohammed Abdulkadir, who was arrested with Hiudeyfi on 13 January by the National Security Agency, is still being held.A local journalist said the authorities were angry with Abdulkadir because he went to the Eritrean capital of Asmara to cover the creation of an opposition political movement formed by members of the Islamic courts and former parliamentarians.Also still being held is Mohammed Shidane Daban, a journalist with privately-owned Radio Banadir, who was arrested at Mogadishu’s Aden Adde international airport on 4 January.———————————-14.01.08 – Two Radio Somaliweyn journalists arrested in MogadishuReporters Without Borders calls for the release of Abdirahman Mohamed Hudeyfi, the manager of privately-owned Somaliweyn Radio, and Bashir Mohammed Abdulkadir, one of his journalists, who were arrested by government security forces yesterday in Mogadishu.“The civilian government’s indifference about the safety and freedom of Somali journalists is astounding,” the press freedom organisation said. “The authorities not only refuse to protect them from targeted murders but also continue to let the security forces carry out arbitrary arrests without any explanation. The international community should ask the government to explain its abdication of responsibility in the face of repeated press freedom violations.”A unit from the transitional federal government’s National Security Agency stormed into the studios of Radio Somaliweyn yesterday and arrested Abdulkadir. After several hours went by without hearing from his employee, Hudeyfi phoned the unit’s commander. As a result, he was then summoned to NSA headquarters where he was also arrested.Their arrests bring the number of journalists currently held in Somalia to three. Mohammed Shidane Daban was arrested at Mogadishu’s Aden Adde international airport on 4 January as he was about to leave the country. Idle Moallim, a freelance reporter who often works for Somaliweyn’s website, was released on 12 January after being arrested in Bossasso, in the semi-autonomous northern region of Puntland, on 5 January. No official explanation was ever given for his arrest.

Accused Cannot Be Kept In Custody Only On A ‘Hunch’ That He Will Impede Trial Or To Send A Message To Society : Delhi HC

If anything, the only message that goes-out to the society by keeping an accused in prison before finding him guilty, is that our system works only on impressions and conjectures and can keep an accused in custody even on presumption of guilt,” the single-Judge bench of Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani observed. The remarks were made while allowing the bail plea of Fortis Healthcare promoter, Shivinder Mohan Singh, in a money laundering case. The bench has directed the authorities to release Singh on bail on his furnishing a personal bond of ₹1 crore and two sureties of ₹25 lacs each. The above observations place a significant check on the exercise of discretion in matters of granting bail to an undertrial prisoner. The bench has clarified that the authorities probing the criminal case must oppose the grant of bail on the basis of cogent material that makes a case “beyond reasonable doubt” and they should not seek custody of the accused only with an intention to “punish” him even before conclusion of trial. It said, “An investigating agency must come to court with the confidence that they have arrested an accused based on credible material, and have filed a complaint or a chargesheet with the certainty that they will be able to bring home guilt, by satisfying a court beyond reasonable doubt. But when an investigating agency suggests that an accused be detained in custody as an undertrial for a prolonged period, even after the complaint or chargesheet has been filed, it appears that the investigating agency is not convinced of its case and so it fears that the accused may ‘get-off’ by discharge or acquittal; and that therefore the only way to ‘punish the accused’ is to let him remain in custody as an undertrial.” In the present case, Shivinder along with his brother Malvinder Singh, and Sunil Godhwani, are accused of committing financial fraud running into 3000 crores, which is dated to the period of their ownership of Religare Finvest. Senior Advocate Hariharan, who appeared for Singh had argued that the bail should be granted to the Petitioner that the evidence in the present case has already been recorded and there is nothing on the record that warrants further incarceration. Enforcement Directorate, on the other hand, had opposed the bail plea on the ground that there’s a possibility of the accused tampering with the evidence, he poses a flight risk, and that he can influence the witnesses. The bench noted that even though Shivinder was arrested by the ED after a “substantial” period of time had elapsed since registration of ECIR against him, there was no allegation against him of having either tampered with evidence or influenced any witnesses or destroyed any records. In fact, it observed that since the impugned transactions were recorded and reflected in several records, the same could not be undone, reversed, modified or altered in any manner. In these circumstances the bench said, “While it may indeed take long and painstaking effort to unravel the entire alleged crime, when there is no real and probable risk of the applicant interfering in further investigation, as displayed by the past conduct of the applicant, that cannot be reason for denying bail.” It added, “Though the offences as alleged, if proved, are serious economic offences, that in itself cannot be the basis for denying bail since the nature of offence has a limited role to play while examining a bail application.” The bench has held that an accused, popularly believed to be guilty, cannot be kept in custody merely to quench the society’s “thirst for revenge.” “Such action would certainly not leave our criminal justice system awash in glory. …People’s trust in the criminal justice system must rest on surer footing than on pre-trial punishment by keeping accused persons in prison,” the bench remarked. It stressed on the Supreme Court’s verdict in Sanjay Chandra v. CBI, (2012) 1 SCC 40, where it was held that the object of bail is to secure the appearance of the accused person at his trial by reasonable amount of bail. ‘The object of bail is neither punitive nor preventative.’ The bench proceeded to study the statistics available on the Delhi Prisons website as per which, proportion of undertrials to convicts in Delhi prisons is about 82% to 18% as of December 2019. “These numbers are telling. Prison is a place for punishment; and no punishment can be legitimate without a trial. There must be compelling basis, grounds and reasons to detain an undertrial in judicial custody, which this court does not discern in the present case,” the bench remarked. It was also alive of the fact that keeping an undertrial in jail, “seriously jeopardizes” the preparation of his legal defence. “If kept in custody, the applicant will not be able to effectively brief and consult with his lawyers, collate evidence in his defence and thereby defend himself effectively. Thereby the applicant will be denied his right to fair trial guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution,” the order states. Case Details: Case Title: Dr. Shivinder Mohan Singh v. Directorate of Enforcement Case No.: BA No. 1353/2020 Quorum: Justice Anup Jairam Bhambhani Appearance: Senior Advocate N.

Word on the Streets

first_img‘Butch’ sells the Big Issue in Summertown and on Broad Street. He has been homeless for six years and is on a drug rehabilitation programme.“My real name’s Butcher. I’ve got two dogs, Bandit and Mandosa. don’t care if people say I have them to get a sympathy vote. They help me, but that’s not what they’re there for. I love dogs and I’ve had them all my life. They’re all I’ve got.I think the people here are a bit snobbish. Some are alright once you get to know them, but most don’t make the effort. I don’t lie. I tell them I was a drug addict. I moved up here to be with a girl but that split up and I got into drugs. That was my worst mistake.I don’t think it’s unfair to say that most homeless people are drug addicts. I think they are. I know they are: I live with them. They just don’t admit it. They’re in big denial. That’s where all the money goes. I can get all my food for free so the only reason I am standing here is drugs. There’s no point in denying it. I am what I am. You’re never going to get better until you face up to what you are.What we need is more rehab centres. Proper ones, somewhere you can go and live just to come off, none of this bullshit therapy stuff. There are some, but they take too long to get into. By the time you’re in you’ve given up and I’ve given up giving up. I’ve come round full circle. I’m from Suffolk but I can’t go back until I’m off the gear. It’d be too embarrassing in front of my friends. I’m on a methadone programme at the moment but I’m trying to get off it. I’m cutting down every fortnight. I used to have my own business, making and selling chess sets so want to go back to where I come from and start all over again.”ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2003last_img read more
