The ARP is proposing expulsion for members convicted of sexual violence, with 200 film-makers set to vote at a special meeting

A French organisation of more than 200 film-makers said on Monday it will propose new rules regarding members charged or convicted of a criminal offence, particularly of a sexual nature, which could lead to the suspension and expulsion of French-Polish director Roman Polanski.

The board of the ARP directors’ guild voted to present “new procedures to suspend any member facing legal charges, and expel any member convicted, especially for crimes of a sexual nature,” said Pierre Jolivet, the organisation’s president.

Wrong minister approved order, court hears during appeal to overturn convictions for escaping Maze prison in 70s

The former SinnFéin leader Gerry Adams was interned illegally at the height of Northern Ireland’s Troubles because the wrong minister approved his detention order, the supreme court in London has been told.

In an attempt to overturn two criminal convictions for escaping from the Maze prison in 1973 and 1974, lawyers for the 71-year-old are challenging the way he was originally held under emergency legislation.

That is typical of racist generalisation across a whole category of people
It is not generalisation. I share my personal experience. I'll make it clear:
All Westerners with whom i discussed this topic - use this trick
You are the same.
It is also hypocritical, because it does not recognise that the Russian Empire is guilty of all the same crimes as the Western European empires.
I admit it. I said it straight. You're desperate to apply your stereotypes and trick to me
Russian Empire was the Empire of German feudals, like British or Dutch Empires:

Government may offer pardon if suspect can lead investigators to mastermind behind killing

A man suspected of being the middleman in the murder of Malta’s most prominent anti-corruption journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia, has been arrested, a police source has told Reuters.

The man is believed to have linked the person suspected of commissioning the murder of Caruana Galizia, to the men accused of carrying out the killing, as well as those who helped procure the explosive device used in the operation.

Under a deal to curb migration, Italy is helping to train and equip an enemy in a long-running dispute

In Antico Borgo Marinaro, an elegant restaurant in Mazara del Vallo, on the west coast of Sicily, a dish of uncooked red prawns with melon, chili pepper and pomegranate costs €12. Fisherman fear these same red prawns could cost them their lives.

Since the mid-90s when Libya began protecting its fishing waters from foreign vessels with the use of force, a little-known conflict has been rumbling in the 180 miles of sea that separates Libya from Italy, which are also the fishing grounds for one of the world’s most prized crustaceans.

Mise en oeuvre d’une directive européenne sur la réduction des émissions de CO2.


— Ah, cool... Enfin ils s'intéressent à l'écologie... :)
— Pas tout à fait...

Ça peut se concrétiser par une augmentation du carburant à partir de janvier 2020.


— Oui mais bon, c'est la Belgique, et puis ils disent que la hausse ne sera que de quelques centimes...
— Si c'est une directive européenne, c'est... pour toute l'Europe. Et puis 2 cts pour toi multipliés par... (on est combien, au fait, en Europe ?...). D'ailleurs reste à savoir si l'argent récolté servira réellement à réduire les émissions polluantes.

Brother of American detainee says Russia drawing out case ‘to see what they can get’

Relatives of foreign citizens in Russian prisons have accused Moscow of engaging in hostage diplomacy and say they are concerned about their family members being used as bargaining chips to exchange for Russians detained abroad.

The brother of Paul Whelan, an American arrested on spying charges 11 months ago who returns to court on Tuesday, said he believed Russia was drawing out his case to “see what they can get from the United States for him”.

Raids in four countries, including the UK, as part of operation to recover relics stolen in Calabria

Italian art police have searched houses and buildings in four countries, including Britain, and arrested 23 people on charges of trafficking archeological artefacts.

The Command for the Protection of Cultural Heritage, a branch of the Italian carabinieri responsible for combatting art and antiquities crimes, believe the suspects are members of an criminal gang operating in Calabria that trafficked ancient items, such as antique jars, jewellery and vases from the 4th and 2nd century BC and worth millions of euros.

Staff at the French wine and spirits company Pernod Ricard claim they were under constant pressure to drink at work to the point of damaging their health.

One former salesman told how he felt obliged to knock back up to 12 glasses of the popular aniseed-flavoured eponymous apéritif a day and drove his car while drunk. Another spoke of three-day binges.
