OTTAWA — Canada’s Department of Justice, through its International Assistance Group, helps Canadian and foreign police and prosecutors by extraditing people to face prosecution or sentencing in the country in which they are charged or convicted.The Extradition Act provides Ottawa with the legal basis to extradite people located in Canada who are sought by an extradition partner. Those partners include:— Countries, such as the United States, with which Canada has an extradition agreement (a bilateral treaty or a multilateral convention);— Countries with which Canada has entered into a case-specific agreement; or— Countries or international courts whose names appear in the schedule to the Extradition Act.In all cases, the conduct for which extradition is sought must be considered criminal in both the requesting country and in Canada.There are three key stages to the Canadian extradition process:— The justice minister must first determine whether to authorize the start of extradition proceedings in the Canadian courts by issuing what’s known as an “Authority to Proceed.”— Once an Authority to Proceed has been issued, the Canadian courts must determine whether there is sufficient evidence to justify the person’s committal for extradition. When someone is committed for extradition, the justice minister must personally decide whether to order the person’s surrender to the foreign state.— Someone sought for extradition may appeal their committal and seek judicial review of the minister’s surrender order — a process that can play out for months or even years in the courts.(Source: Canadian Department of Justice)The Canadian Press

HALIFAX — A court case is underway today over the release of key evidence explaining what led to the wrongful murder conviction and imprisonment of a Nova Scotia man who spent almost 17 years in jail.The Canadian Press, CBC and the Halifax Examiner are asking Justice James Chipman of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court for access to federal documents with details of how 63-year-old Glen Assoun was improperly convicted of second-degree murder on Sept. 17, 1999.It’s a case where Canada’s minister of justice has already declared there was “reliable and relevant evidence” that wasn’t disclosed during criminal proceedings.On March 1, after a two-decade struggle by Assoun to overturn his conviction, a judge found Assoun innocent in the 1995 knifing death of 28-year-old Brenda Way.A lawyer with Innocence Canada, a group that works to free the wrongfully convicted, has said police didn’t disclose key evidence before Assoun’s unsuccessful appeal in 2006.The struggle to release the information goes back to 2014, when the Justice Department determined in a preliminary report there may have been a of miscarriage of justice and Assoun was released on bail.At the time, Chipman refused a media request to see the report, and sealed the hundreds of pages of information.The Canadian Press

Wood artist Yanick Richard says he has received no answers from Canada Post after his client’s art was destroyed in the box. (CBC/Sam Martin) Yanick Richard ships hundreds of boxes containing his birch art every year, and knows there’s a chance the delicate pieces could be damaged along the way.To minimize that risk, the Edmonton artist painstakingly ships his custom wooden wall art — made of twigs and branches carefully nailed into a pine frame — in bubble wrap, layers of cardboard, tape and dozens of orange “fragile” stickers.Throughout years of shipping through Canada Post, he has had the odd piece that arrived at its destination with scratches or minor damage. Advertisement Facebook Twitter Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement But an art piece sent to a client in Kelowna on Oct. 20 arrived three weeks late on Nov. 21, looking like it had been run over and hastily repackaged. The wood frame inside was broken and birch branches were strewn throughout the box. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment
4 November 2008The United Nations has welcomed the decision by the Iraqi legislature to allocate a specific number of seats for representatives of the country’s minority communities ahead provincial elections, slated to be held sometime before the end of January 2009. “The adoption of the amendment to the electoral law should be seen as a contribution towards furthering the respect for human rights and democracy in Iraq, through the commitment of the Iraqi institutions to recognize and guarantee minority representation in their elected governing bodies,” the UN Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) said in a news release.The Mission did note that the amendment adopted by the Council of Representatives (CoR) does not reflect a larger number of seats for Iraqi minorities consistent with UNAMI’s original proposal.However, UNAMI respects the Council’s decision, which was adopted by a majority of 106 votes and is binding for the current elections. The Mission also notes that the timing of the vote will allow for the inclusion of minority candidates in the Independent High Electoral Commission’s ballot lottery.“UNAMI hopes that the Presidency Council will therefore expeditiously ratify the decision approved by the CoR. This will allow IHEC to abide by operational timelines for the holding of the provincial elections within the mandated deadline of 31 January 2009.”Last month the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Iraq and head of UNAMI, Staffan de Mistura, called on the Council of Representatives to reinstate the provision on minority rights into the newly-approved provincial election law, stressing that protecting those rights is fundamental to a democratic Iraq.
26 July 2011Parties to the crisis in Libya remain deeply divided on how to reach a political solution to the conflict that has raged since February when an uprising flared up in a bid to oust the ruling regime, the United Nations envoy for the North African country, Abdul Ilah Al-Khatib, said today. “The Special Envoy said it is clear from the discussions in Tripoli today and in Benghazi yesterday with representatives of the Libyan Transitional National Council, that both sides remain far apart on reaching agreement on a political solution,” according to a note to reporters issued by the office of the spokesperson of the Secretary-General.The two sides, however, reaffirmed to Mr. Khatib – the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy – their desire to continue to engage with the UN in the search for a solution.In his meeting with Libya’s Prime Minister Baghdadi Al-Mahmoud in Tripoli today, Mr. Khatib once again urged the authorities there to engage in a political process that leads to a political solution that meets the legitimate demands and aspirations of the Libyan people.Mr. Mahmoud reiterated previously stated positions regarding the NATO air strikes, and against the stepping down of Libyan leader Muammar al-Qadhafi, according to the note.Libya has been engulfed by fighting since a pro-democracy movement opposed to the regime of Mr. Qadhafi emerged in February following similar protests in Tunisia, Egypt and other countries across North Africa and the Middle East.

Then-freshman Nichelle Prince (7) avoids a defender during a game against Pittsburgh Aug. 28, 2013. OSU won 2-0.Credit: Lantern file photoWith time running out, the Ohio State women’s soccer team made a big play at the end of regulation to tie with No. 24 Michigan.There wasn’t a lot of action in the first half as neither team was able to get much going. Both sides were unable to convert on opportunities as the match entered halftime scoreless.The Wolverines held an 8-4 lead in shots and 3-1 lead in shots on goal for the first half.Sophomore forward Nichelle Prince gave the Buckeyes a chance to take the lead in the 63rd minute but freshman goalkeeper Megan Hinz made a diving save to keep the score tied.Sophomore forward Nicky Waldeck gave the Wolverines the lead in the 70th minute with a header off a corner kick from freshman forward Taylor Timko.OSU responded with a header from senior midfielder Ellyn Gruber off a cross from senior forward Kayla Varner in the 75th minute to tie the game.With two minutes remaining, Varner had a chance to give the Buckeyes the lead with a header but the shot was saved by Hinz to keep the game tied.In the final minute, freshman forward Danielle Hogarth gave the Wolverines the lead with a header off a cross from sophomore midfielder Anna Soccorsi.Just a few seconds later, sophomore defender Nicole Miyashiro tied the game again off an assist from freshman forward Sammy Edwards. The late goal was the last of regulation, sending the game into overtime with the score tied, 2-2.Michigan ended regulation with a 22-18 lead in shots while both teams managed seven shots on goal.Redshirt-freshman midfielder Ani Sarkisian gave Michigan a shot in the 93rd minute but redshirt-freshman goalkeeper Megan Geldernick was there to make the save.Both teams were unable to score and so the game was sent into a second overtime.Both teams struggled for chances in the second overtime, but sophomore midfielder Jessica Heifetz had a chance to give the Wolverines the win in the 107th minute but Geldernick was able to make another save for OSU.The rest of overtime played out and the game ended in a 2-2 draw.OSU moved to 5-8-3 overall and 2-5-3 in the Big Ten. The Buckeyes also handed Michigan (11-4-1, 7-2-1) its first draw of the season.Up next, the Buckeyes are scheduled to face Iowa on Friday at 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium and Nebraska on Sunday at 1 p.m.
A terrorist bomb-making video watched by Salman Abedi before he blew himself up at a Manchester pop concert is still being shared on YouTube, the US Senate has heard.A senate committee questioned how the video was getting round the web giant’s safeguards designed to stop extremists posting propaganda and terrorist content.The video has been uploaded to the site as recently as this month, the committee disclosed as they quizzed executives from the world’s top social media companies.Executives from Twitter, Google’s YouTube and Facebook said their automatic tools for spotting and quickly removing the content were becoming increasingly effective. But senators said the efforts were still “not enough”.Sen John Thune, chairman of the commerce committee, said: “According to the Counter Extremism Project, one single bomb making video used to instruct the Manchester suicide bomber has been uploaded to YouTube and removed 11 times but continues to resurface as recently as this month.“How is it possible for that to happen?” Juniper Downs, YouTube’s director of public policy, said the video had been entered into a database of harmful films that were being automatically searched for and taken down.She said: “We are catching reuploads of the video quickly and removing it as soon as those uploads are detected.”The rapid online radicalisation of a string of ‘lone wolf’ terrorists in America and Europe has put intense pressure on tech firms to do more to police their platforms.Intelligence officials in Britain have warned that attackers are becoming radicalised and inspired to carry out attacks by jihadist propaganda in a matter of just weeks or even days.The committee heard social media companies were relying too heavily on programmes to catch extremists and their content. Clint Watts, of the Foreign Policy Research Institute said: “Social media companies continue to get beat in part because they rely too heavily on technologists and technical detection to catch bad actors.””Artificial intelligence and machine learning will greatly assist in cleaning up nefarious activity, but will for the near future fail to detect that which hasn’t been seen before.”The committee heard that though the ability to use anonymous accounts may have allowed pro-democracy activists to battle repressive regimes, it also benefited extremists. Sen Ben Nelson said: “These platforms have created a new and stunningly effective way for nefarious actors to attack and to harm.”Carlos Monje, director of public policy for Twitter, said that even with all the web firms’ efforts to tackle terrorist and hate content “it is a cat-and-mouse game and we are constantly evolving to face the challenge”.

← Previous Story Bundesliga (Round 16): Flensburg dominant in Balingen, tops the table Next Story → Rhein Neckar Lowen wins in Ukraine! australia handballplay handballsydney handball After two participations at the IHF Super Globe and no win, Sydney Uni Handball Club are looking to finally get their first success in 2014. They hope to achieve this not least by strengthening their squad with overseas students.Australia is a developing country when it comes to handball, with the national team consistently coming last in the World Cup, and Sydney Uni –club champion of the Oceania handball region in 2011 and 2013 – being ranked last at the IFH Super Globe in Qatar (the official club world cup) two years in a row. And it is no surprise, once one realizes that due to the vast distances between cities and a lack of funding there is not even a national handball league in Australia. Handball is simply overshadowed by other sports such as rugby, Australian Rules Football and Soccer.But frankly, Sydney Uni would not let this deter them –teams from down under are known for their fighting spirit and never-give-up attitude, regardless of the result. Two years ago, Sydney Uni came reasonably close to beating Asian club champions Mudhar – when the Saudis had a certain WaelJallouz (now THW Kiel) on the left back, and Tunisian sharpshooter Amine Bannour on the right. In the end, Mudhar’s professionals got away with a narrow win over Sydney’s amateurs – but the students won the respect of the handball community for a spirited effort.In 2014 – Sydney Uni is determined to put the last pieces of the puzzle together to finally get a positive result – not just respect. They have an exciting program ahead of them with Australian club playoffs in March, the Oceania Club Championships in New Caledonia in June – and if successful in those tournaments the Super Globe awaits in August.With the core of the squad and coach Philipp Enders now together for more than 2 years – they know they probably just need a bit more depth to their squad for theirintense 6 month preparation. With Australia’s pool of talent exhausted – they are now looking to Europe to get an additional 3 or 4 students to come on the journey with them. They particularly need some fire power from the back line.“No other club in the world can offer a young, ambitious non-professional player the perspective of playing at the Super Globe in August 2014” says Sydney’s German coach Philipp Enders. “We may not pay salaries, nor get big crowds at our local games, but we take our preparation very seriously, and we can offer someone who’s willing to move down here for 6 months the very realistic chance of playing against Barcelona or Hamburg in August”.Sydney Uni is hoping that they can attract students who are keen to study in Sydney, while also focusing on handball. The reward is the prospect of being on the centre stage of world handball at the Super Globe. “Yes, we’re looking for those crazy guys who are chasing their dream, move to Sydney to study just for their chance to play against Karabatic” says Enders. “ We can’t offer money or even a free place at university – but we can offer to be part of an amazing group who want to show the world that you can beat the odds. Oh, and maybe combining your handball ambition with living in the most beautiful city, with amazing beaches, counts for something too?”If you are a student who currently plays top level handball in Europe – and would like to join Sydney Uni, please contact them via email@example.com

Macau GGR tumbles 8.6% in August Melco International Development grants Evan Winkler HK$269 million share options RelatedPosts Load More Melco Resorts & Entertainment has announced the continuation of its award-winning resident show “The House of Dancing Water” under a new operational structure.With the show’s original 10-year contract up for renewal, the revised structure will see Franco Dragone, founder of Belgian creative company Dragone, remain as artistic director where he will continue to oversee the artistic and creative direction of the production. However, Melco said the show will now be managed under a new independent and separate artistic show management entity. JW Marriott at Galaxy Macau named venue and Galaxy Entertainment Group named Venue Sponsor for 2019 Asian Gaming Power 50 Black Tie Gala Dinner “This is an exciting moment for Melco and we look forward to our renewed cooperation with Franco Dragone under this arrangement as we continue to deliver this stunning performance to audiences from around the world,” said Melco Chairman and CEO Lawrence Ho.“This show has become one of the greatest attractions for tourists in Macau and I feel privileged that Melco has had the opportunity to work with Dragone’s talented team for the last decade.“Our announcement today further demonstrates our commitment to entertainment offerings and our intention to deliver an amazing artistic and cultural experience to our guests. We hope to do this in Macau but also globally in our integrated resorts around the world.”“The House of Dancing Water” has been seen by almost 6 million people since it debuted in 2010.
Last weekend, hundreds of skiers descended on Talkeetna for the Oosik Classic Ski Race and Tour. Some come to compete, and others wear costumes. Everyone comes to have a good time.Download AudioThe Oosik is one of the largest classic ski races in the country. This year, just under 700 skiers came from all over Alaska to Talkeetna to participate. Just two weeks ago, however, there were serious concerns on the part of the race organizers. Temperatures were high, and the snow on the ski trails was quickly taking on the consistency of concrete. With time ticking away before the event, Denali Nordic Ski Club member Chris Mannix had some friends over to make a sacrifice to the patron god of skiers.Men’s 50k winner Jonas Loeffler.“We’ve done it once before, and it worked then, so we did it again. We burned skis and it snowed. Ullr smiled on us.”With fresh snow, the Oosik was looking to proceed smoothly, that is until temperatures reached the high forties once again just a day before the race. Willi Prittie is part of the trail grooming crew, and says it took extra work in the pre-dawn hours before the race to make sure everything was ready for the noon start.“We got up around 3:00 am this morning and gathered at about 4:00 am, and we set track between 4:30 and 9:30.”The somewhat backcountry nature of the trail is part of its draw. U.S. Olympic skier Holly Brooks came to ski in the Oosik, and explains why the race is a favorite around the state.“…Right now, everyone’s smiling, there’s music, there’s Christmas lights, there’s good food, people are friendly. It’s always a good time to come to Talkeetna. The course is a blast. I’m hoping there’s some narrow tree skiing, which is always fun. People dress up. It’s a good party after. I’ve had a good time swing dancing late into the night here at the [Don Sheldon] hangar, before.”Holly Brooks is fresh off tour of skiing that included the Olympics in Sochi last month. Before the race, she said she wasn’t sure whether she would take a more relaxed pace or let her competitive spirit take over.Women’s 50k winner Holly Brooks.“I’m going to just go out there and see what I feel like. I’ve been home for a day and a half. I’ve been gone on the road for four-and-a-half months. [I’m] pretty tired from all the racing and jet-setting I’ve been doing.”Holly Brooks must have still had some fuel in the tank, however, as she went on to win the women’s 50 kilometer race.In addition to the super-competitive skiers, many participants in the Oosik don’t bother with the race itself, but rather treat it as an opportunity to have fun on skis. For many, like Kelly Donnelly, that means donning a homemade costume and hitting the trail.“I am the universe, today. You’ll notice my space pants and my sun cape–hand made. I thought I’d go with the blue theme and be the entire universe.”Local skiers get involved as well. Galen Johnston, who grew up skiing the trails around Talkeetna, now coaches skiing at Dimond High School. He says this year’s trail offered some variety.“…Much more technical from a skiing perspective. [It’s] still mostly double pole. That’s kind of the status quo for this race. [There] was a lot more hills than the last couple years. It was fun to mix things up. There’s more gliding. It’s not just constant double pole.”Organizers say this year’s race was a big success. Chris Mannix says the real measure of how well the race goes can be seen on the faces of skiers as they reach the finish line.“It went fantastically. The weather–what do you say? Last night at 8 o’clock it was raining, and then it turned around. We had a beautiful day and the course held up. It was awesome. We had a couple of glitches out there, but I saw people skiing across the finish line with big smiles on there faces, saying it was fun.”After the race, the party hosted by the Denali Nordic Ski Club lasted well into the night. On Sunday, hundreds of cars filtered up the Talkeetna Spur, but many will be back for next year’s Oosik Classic.Complete race results are posted on the Denali Nordic Ski Club website.
