Munna was shot dead in the city of Deoghar on 16 December, after being threatened.“The Jharkhand police and judicial authorities must not yield to political pressure in their investigation into the Munna murder,” the press freedom organisation said. “The involvement of politicians and members of the police must be determined, especially as innocent people seem to have been arrested in order to protect those responsible.”Munna was the only Indian journalist to be killed because of his work in 2007. There is an urgent need for the authorities in New Delhi, especially the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), to look into the case, Reporters Without Borders added.Munna, who worked for the weekly Samkalin Tapman, was gunned down outside Baidyanath Dham station in Deoghar on 16 December. The next day, shops and schools in Deoghar stayed shut in protest against his murder, while local journalists wore black badges. The protests spread to the regional assembly, where Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda rejected the opposition’s request for a CBI investigation.In an interview for the magazine Tehelka, Munna’s widow, Parvati Devi, accused the state’s minister of urban development and tourism, Harinarayan Rai, and a parliamentarian of the Rashtriya Jantal Dal party, Banka Giridhari Yadav, of masterminding his murder. Last September, Munna wrote a story accusing Rai, then an independent parliamentarian, and his family of acquiring state property. “The police want to divert the focus of the investigation away from the minister,” she said.Munna was often threatened and was the victim of an attack in which he lost an eye and his house was set on fire in 2003, after writing about Yadav’s alleged links with Maoist rebels.“It is the police who killed my husband, as they did not take him to a hospital, and they also allowed the attackers to flee”, his widow told Tehelka. Deoghar police chief Manoj Kaushik initially promised not to rule out the possibility of Rai’s involvement. But soon afterwards, he announced that Rai was not under suspicion and said the murder appeared to be linked to past grudges involving Maoist rebels or known criminals. Two suspects were arrested. One was from the village that Munna came from. The other was a person linked to Yadav.

Caltex Australia refers to its ASX announcement dated 19 February 2020 advising that it had received a non-binding, indicative and conditional proposal from EG Group Limited (EG) to acquire all of the shares in Caltex via a scheme of arrangement (EG Proposal).The Caltex Board has carefully considered the EG Proposal, including taking into account the associated risks, costs and complexities.

Accordingly, Caltex has offered to engage further with EG in relation to a potential transaction.There is no certainty that the discussions between Caltex and EG will result in EG improving its proposal or in EG making a binding proposal.

Arraignment postponed in student murder trial

first_imgThe arraignment for three of the four defendants charged with the murder of USC graduate student Xinran Ji was postponed Tuesday.Judge James R. Brandlin said the arraignment will now take place May 14.Jonathan Del Carmen, Andrew Garcia, Alejandra Guerrero and Alberto Ochoa are charged with attacking Ji, a 24-year-old engineering graduate student who was walking home from a study group in July.Ji was beaten with a baseball bat during an attempted robbery. He returned to his apartment where he died a few hours later as a result of his injuries.Though all four defendants will be tried as adults, only Del Carmen and Garcia are eligible for the death penalty.  Guerrero and Ochoa were minors when the crime was committed.Garcia was not present in court on Tuesday. In February, he underwent evaluation and a mental competency hearing. The court determined he was fit to stand trial. Garcia’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 29, after which prosecutors said he will likely join the three other defendants for arraignment.Christopher Chaney, Ochoa’s attorney, said multiple continuances are common in cases where the death penalty is involved. The District Attorney’s office must prepare a memo outlining a suggested punishment and that memo is then sent to a committee for a final decision.Rose Tsai, the attorney for Ji’s family, said her clients are following the case closely and hoping for the most severe punishment possible.“The last thing they want is their son to have lost his life in vain,” Tsai said. “They’re hoping justice will be done in this case and it will serve as a deterrent so situations like this won’t happen to any other students.”Tsai said Ji’s parents have also spoken with Deputy District Attorney John McKinney about the trial but have yet to decide if they will come from China to Los Angeles for the proceedings.The trial must begin within 60 days of the arraignment.Since Ji’s murder, the university and the Dept. of Public Safety instituted several new security measures including year-round employment of off-campus security personnel, increased nighttime patrols and enhanced analytics for video camera monitoring. In November, DPS launched the mobile safety app LiveSafe.Despite the fact that the murder victim was a USC student and the crime occurred only a few blocks from campus, Chaney, who is also a USC alumnus, maintains that the defendants did not target USC or its students specifically.“It’s not ‘the USC case,’” he said. “It’s just a case that happened near USC.”last_img read more
