1 COMMENT Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear By William Patrick – From Watchdog.orgMotorists from 65 Florida cities and counties want their money back after paying red light camera tickets that a state appeals court deemed illegal two years ago.Last week, a federal appeals court said not so fast.The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, overseeing Florida, Georgia and Alabama, denied a ticket refund worth more than $200 million. But it also denied the local governments’ request to dismiss the class-action lawsuit, thereby allowing it to proceed.A final decision won’t happen anytime soon.The case is under review at a lower federal court in Miami, where the aggrieved drivers sued for a refund more than a year ago. Lawyers for the cities and counties went to the 11th Circuit in Atlanta in an attempt to undermine their claim.Further complicating matters, a state appeals court ruling in July found the city of Aventura’s red light camera program was perfectly fine. Aventura is a defendant in the class action suit.The maze of legal proceedings will likely land in the Florida Supreme Court, said Sheila Dunn, communications director for the National Motorists Association. A ruling from the high court would apply throughout the state.“Our hope is that the state supreme court will find red light cameras illegal,” Dunn told Watchdog.org.“If they’re illegal, then the ill-gotten gains should certainly go back to motorists,” she said.In 2014, the 4th District Court of Appeal invalidated the red light camera program in Hollywood, Fla., for unlawfully delegating police power to a red light camera vendor called American Traffic Solutions.The Arizona-based company, also a defendant in the class-action lawsuit, was selectively determining which photos to send to Hollywood’s traffic enforcement office where the tickets were effectively rubber-stamped.“The tickets are void and should be dismissed,” the court concluded.Use this link to read the rest of this article.

Purdue Extensionwill host 20 statewide community forums in January and February to aid the Purdue University College of Agriculture in its strategic planning. Free and open to the public, the forums are intended to gather feedback to consider as the College of Agriculture creates its five-year strategic plan later this year. “These forums will allow people throughout Indiana to share their visions for Purdue Extension and the College of Agriculture and tell us what we’re doing well, where we can improve and the initiatives in which we can help lead the way,” said Jason Henderson, director of Purdue Extension and associate dean of the College of Agriculture. “We’ve called them ‘community forums’ for a reason. We want to hear from a diverse representation of those who call Indiana home, especially those who may be less familiar with what Extension can offer.

TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Judicial harassmentImprisonedFreedom of expression Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News October 24, 2017 48 journalists on trial this week in Turkey Organisation No fewer than 48 journalists will be in court this week in three different trials in Turkey. Most of them are in prison. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the baseless charges on which they are being tried and calls for the immediate release of those detained. April 2, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law April 28, 2021 Find out more Nowadays barely a week goes by in Turkey without journalists being arrested or tried. Another six are going on trial today in connection with their coverage of information obtained in 2016 by a group of far-left hackers from the emails of President Erdoğan’s son-in-law, energy minister Berat Albayrak. The information they published, in which there was a clear public interest, involved petroleum trade with Iraqi Kurdistan, the crackdown on the “Occupy Gezi” movement and the government’s progressive subjugation of the Turkish media. Scapegoats Three of these six journalists – investigative reporter Tunca Öğreten, DİHA news agency reporter Ömer Çelik and Mahir Kanaat of the left-wing daily BirGün – have already spent ten months in provisional detention. The other three – Derya Okatan, Metin Yoksu and Eray Sargın – were arrested at the same time as the others but were freed after 24 hours in police custody. They are accused of distorting the content of Albayrak’s emails, divulging state secrets and benefiting various terrorist organizations by “creating a negative perception of the authorities.” Despite an obvious ideological contradiction, Öğreten is also accused of being simultaneously linked to the DHKP-C, a far-left armed group, and to the movement led by Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen, which is alleged by the government to have been behind the abortive coup in July 2016. Similarly incongruous accusations have also been made against some of his colleagues. “The fate of these journalists is yet another example of the absurd and contradictory accusations that many journalists are facing in Turkey,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Provisional detention is being used in a punitive and arbitrary manner. We again call for the immediate release of all media personnel who have been jailed in connection with their work.” Spate of trials The trial of 29 journalists accused of Gülen Movement membership also resumes today. Twenty-three of them have been held provisionally for more than a year. The court ordered the release of most of them at the end of the first hearing but their release was blocked at the last moment. Thirteen of these journalists, including Murat Aksoy and Atilla Taş, are also being prosecuted on charges of “trying to overthrow the government and constitutional order.” Thirteen other journalists, including Faruk Eren, Ertuğrul Mavioğlu and Celal Başlangıç, are due to appear in court on 26 October for participating in a campaign of solidarity with Özgür Gündem, a Kurdish newspaper that had been the victim of judicial persecution. In this campaign, a total of 56 journalists, human rights defenders and intellectuals took turns at being the newspaper’s “editor for a day” from May to August 2016. Human rights defender Murat Çelikkan was released on 21 October after several months serving a jail sentence for his role in the campaign. RSF’s Turkey representative, Erol Önderoğlu, is another of the participants in this campaign who is being prosecuted. His trial is due to resume in Istanbul on 26 December. The trial of 11 human rights defenders, including both the president and the director of Amnesty International in Turkey, is due to start in Istanbul tomorrow. Like independent journalists, they are being subjected to vitriolic attacks in Turkey’s pro-government media for, inter alia, following the Cumhuriyet newspaper trial. They are facing up to 15 years in prison on charges of belonging to various terrorist organizations. Turkey is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. The already worrying media situation has become critical under the state of emergency proclaimed after the July 2016 coup attempt. Around 150 media outlets have been closed and more than 100 journalists are currently in prison.

The petition claims that since the Special Courts have not been functioning due to the suspension of normal court functioning during the lockdown period and risks associated with COVID-19 pandemic, the continued custody of the accused is illegal and without authority of law. The present criminal writ is moved by Aqil Hussain on behalf of his sister who was arrested by the local police in Jafrabad on April 09. The Petitioner submits that initially no details as to the charges and the F.I.R. against his sister were provided, and only contact between the family and the detainee was through phone calls facilitated by the officials in whose custody she was. When the information about the FIR was provided, the accused moved the Magistrate for bail. However, the Magistrate rejected the said application by informing her that the FIR contains charges under the UAPA. Subsequently, she moved the Sessions Court challenging the Magistrate’s order. While the Sessions Court granted her bail on the first FIR, she could not be released from prison as the second FIR against her contained charges under the UAPA. Due to the invocation of charges under the UAPA against his sister, the Petitioner submits, it is only a Special Court constituted and empowered under the National Investigation Agency Act which can extend her custody. Therefore, the Petitioner wants the court to issue a writ of habeas corpus against the Delhi Government and the Commissioner of Delhi Police, to produce the Petitioner’s sister before this court as explain as to why she should not be released on bail, or why her continued detention is not illegal.Click here to download the Petition Next Story
