Unlocking assets could free £1bn to support coronavirus fight

first_imgCAF believes its proposals could significantly supplement the £750m Government aid package for charities announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak.Rhodri Davies, Head of Policy at the Charities Aid Foundation, said:“In these times of crisis we need to employ radical ideas to bolster the charities which are an integral part of life in the UK. These proposals include elements which, in normal times, would not be considered but these extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures to help protect the invaluable work of charities.“The Chancellor recently brought forward welcome and important support for charities but was clear that he couldn’t intervene to help them all. We hope these bold ideas will be taken up by Ministers, regulators and our colleagues in the charity world to unleash support that we need now to keep charities alive for the future.“The contribution of charities has never been more evident and every course of action we can take to ensure they will be there to continue helping society’s most vulnerable needs to be considered at pace.”  Advertisement Melanie May | 17 April 2020 | News Tagged with: Charities Aid Foundation COVID-19 Finance About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

DNA testing exonerates dead man in Florida woman’s murder 36 years later

first_imgJack Harold Jones (L) and Ronald Henry Stewart (R) in undated photos. (Arkansas Department of Corrections/Florida Department of Corrections) (FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — Prosecutors in Florida are asking for a dead man’s murder conviction to be vacated after DNA testing showed he was wrongly convicted.The Broward State Attorney’s Office filed a motion to exonerate Ronald Stewart for the murder of Regina Harrison, it said in a statement released on Thursday. Harrison was killed on May 2, 1983, just two days after her 20th birthday. Stewart, who had previously been sentenced to three concurrent 50-year prison terms for other crimes, including rape and burglary, pled no contest to the murder and was subsequently sentenced to 50 years in prison, according to court records. Stewart died while incarcerated on Sept. 11, 2008.Ten years later, the reinvestigation into Harrison’s murder began when a written confession was handed over to law enforcement by the sister of Jack Harold Jones, a convicted murderer and rapist who was executed a year earlier by the state of Arkansas for the 1995 killing of Mary Phillips, 34.Jones’ sister said he had instructed her not to open the letter, which was written in 2006 or 2007, until one year after his execution.In the letter, a copy of which has been obtained by ABC News, Jones appears to confess to the murder of a young woman who meets the description of Harrison in detail.“I met her riding bikes,” the letter said. “We went to the beach, rode around down there, and came back up Sheridan and into the park. That’s where it happened.”The letter prompted the Broward Sheriff’s Office to run the DNA collected from Harrison’s body in the national DNA database. The test revealed the DNA collected from Harrison’s body originated not from Stewart but from Jones, according to the motion.DNA testing, which was not available in 1983 when Harrison was murdered, has exonerated more than 350 innocent people in the United States, according to the Innocence Project, an organization that uses DNA testing to help exonerate wrongly convicted people.“Ronald Stewart would not have been charged with murder if DNA testing had been available at the time and he would not have been prosecuted for the murder if DNA testing had been available at the time,” the Broward State Attorney’s Office statement reads.For Harrison’s family, though, the news of his wrongful conviction came too late and it has forced them to relive the pain of their lost loved one.“In a practical sense, this doesn’t affect anybody that’s alive today. We got two bad guys and they’re both dead,” brother Richard Harrison, 58, told ABC News. “Though Stewart didn’t murder my sister, that didn’t make him any less evil, and that doesn’t make Jones any less dead.”But Richard Harrison, who is an attorney in Florida, also said that he supports the state’s attorney’s effort to correct the record because it helps build trust with the community. He said that he has explained the news to his parents, both of whom are approaching 90 and have health issues. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Georgia sheriff’s department under fire after official says spa shootings suspect had ‘really bad day’

first_imgMegan Varner/Getty ImagesBy EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga.) — The sheriff’s department in Cherokee County, Georgia, is facing backlash after a captain described the alleged gunman in the killings of eight people at Atlanta-area spas as having “a really bad day.”The suspect, 21-year-old Robert Long, was taken into custody hours after the Tuesday shootings which took place at three different locations: one in Cherokee County and two in Atlanta.When asked at Wednesday’s news conference if Long understood the gravity of his alleged crimes, Cherokee County Sheriff’s Capt. Jay Baker said, “I spoke with investigators, they interviewed him this morning. And they got that impression, yes — he understood the gravity of it.”“And he was pretty much fed up and had been, kind of, at the end of his rope. And yesterday was a really bad day for him, and this is what he did,” Baker said.The reaction online to Baker’s comment was swift.“This is rage inducing. Not even 24hrs since he killed 8 people & a Cop apologizes for him,” tweeted Qasim Rashid, a human rights lawyer and former candidate for Congress.Eliza Orlins, a candidate for Manhattan district attorney, tweeted, “As a public defender, I’ve had cops call a young client of mine names I refuse to repeat for sleeping on a train platform. Two. Systems. Of. Justice.”Some police officials told ABC News that they believe Baker was trying to convey to reporters what Long told investigators, and that the use of the phrase “bad day” was Long’s words.Baker is also under fire for a post on a now-deleted Facebook account that appeared to belong to him.A post from March 30, 2020, said, “Place your order while they last,” with a smiley emoji next to an image of T-shirts for sale that read, “Covid-19 Imported from Chy-na.”The Facebook account holder who shared the T-shirt image claimed that his employer was the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office. His account included a photo of Baker in uniform outside the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office.The account was deleted Wednesday night.Baker and the sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.The eight victims, the majority of whom were women of Asian descent, were gunned down at three spas in the Atlanta area amid a rise in anti-Asian American and Pacific Islander hate crimes across the nation.Long’s motive remains unclear.Long allegedly admitted to the killings, telling “investigators that he blames the massage parlors for providing an outlet for his addiction to sex,” the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Baker said at the news conference, “It’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate … those were comments that he made.”The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said that “Long told investigators the crimes were not racially motivated.” Cherokee County Sheriff Frank Reynolds said at Wednesday’s news conference, “It may be targets of opportunity. We believe he frequented these places.”However, Atlanta police said Wednesday evening, “Investigators are taking a hard look at what motivated the shooter. Our investigation is far from over and we have not ruled anything out.”President Joe Biden on Thursday ordered flags to half-staff in honor of the victims until March 22.New Jersey Rep. Andy Kim tweeted Wednesday, “I’ve been asked if the violence against [Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders] is new, and if it is getting better with the increased recent visibility. The answer to both is no. Discrimination/violence existed before COVID and it will continue after. And sadly, I don’t think we have seen the worst of it.”“I can’t tell you how much it means to me and others that anti-AAPI violence has gotten attention,” he continued. “Now we need follow through. Give AAPI communities more resources/coordination.”At a Thursday hearing in Congress on violence against Asian Americans, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said, “The fear in the Asian American community and the threat of violence against its members should be a topic of national conversation.”“It’s up to us to speak out against it and to act against it,” he said.Long is charged with eight counts of murder. Long waived his first court appearance, according to his attorney, J. Daran Burns, who was appointed to represent Long by the Cherokee County Office of Indigent Defense on Wednesday.“Everybody is doing their jobs, both law enforcement and the District Attorney’s Office. Now, our firm will conduct a thorough investigation on our client’s behalf,” Burns said in a statement.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

NHS supplier faces court

first_imgCourt give trust go-ahead to name NHS Supplies Authority as co-defendant inlatex gloves court caseThe NHS Supplies Authority is likely to be sued in a chain of damages claimsinitiated by a nurse who says she can no longer work because of latex gloveallergy. In one of about 50 claims currently in motion, the courts have for the firsttime given leave for an NHS trust to name the authority as a co-defendant.Essex Rivers Healthcare Trust has until the end of the month to take up theopportunity. “This is very significant,” said Graham Johnson, professionaldevelopment manager for MTL Medical Services and an expert witness in a numberof latex glove cases. “It will be the first time the authority has beenbrought into the courtroom. “Currently a hospital can ask the NHSSA to send gloves that are knownto be inherently dangerous. The NHSSA argues that since there is a market forthese gloves it must offer them. But the same could be said for Semtex. Theauthority owes a duty of care to the trusts it supplies.” Karen Heyhoe, the registered general nurse bringing the case against EssexRivers, said, ‘The Supplies Authority has a huge case to answer. The healthauthority does rely on it for the best deal and cost-effectiveness. If it isgoing to supply these gloves it should be doing research as well into theirsafety.” The NHSSA catalogue continues to offer powdered latex examination andsurgical gloves despite warnings from the Medical Devices Agency about thepotential risks of allergens released by both the powder and the latex proteinsused in some gloves’ manufacture. About 80 per cent of trusts no longer use thegloves. Last month, in an out-of-court settlement, an unidentified trust paid£30,000 in compensation and offered re-employment to a healthcare worker itdismissed in 1997 because of glove-related ill-health. Daniel Bennett, solicitor with Leigh, Day & Co which is acting for 10latex allergy sufferers, said most of the trusts in question are eitheradmitting or declining to challenge liability. “We are able to demonstrate between 15 and 20 breaches of statutoryduty,” Bennett said. “It is clear from the documentary evidence thathealth trusts were not and are still not assessing the risks under the PersonalProtective Equipment at Work regulations, nor are they doing risk assessmentsrequired under the COSHH regulations. These failures are making it very easy towin these cases.” Next Article Comments are closed.

Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Remembers Pearl Harbor

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Remembers Pearl Harbor Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Remembers Pearl Harbor Naval Air Station Whidbey Island (NASWI), Electronic Attack Squadron 129 (VAQ-129), the Pearl Harbor Survivors’ Association, and North Cascades Chapter 5 honored those killed at Pearl Harbor 72 years ago during a commemoration ceremony, Dec. 6.VAQ-129 hosted the Pearl Harbor Day Commemoration Ceremony at the PBY Memorial Foundation and Navy Heritage Center on the NASWI Seaplane Base, in remembrance of the attack on Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941.Capt. Michael Nortier, NASWI commanding officer, said NASWI was honored to have the survivors at the ceremony.“We have just a few of the brave souls here today that defended our nation,” Nortier said. “In Pearl Harbor they were like today’s Sailors; we have the finest men and women deployed defending our nation.”At the time of the attack Calavan was on the former battleship USS Utah (BB-31). It was the first ship attacked by the Japanese and the wreckage is still visible in the harbor.“What made me angry is the Japanese knew we were there and their torpedoes sank us within 15 minutes,” Calavan said. “We weren’t prepared; over 2,000 young men died that day and it’s because we weren’t alert and ready. We can’t let that happen again.”National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, which is observed annually on Dec. 7, is to remember and honor all those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor.“I was laying in a ditch,” Calavan said. “One of the nicest things about being 17 was I didn’t realize the great danger I was in from being in a ditch. I just knew I was scared.”Calavan said that the day after the attack they had to pull the bodies out of the water. Most of the bodies had no identification and they had to cut their jaws out of their mouth to identify the bodies.“I grew up a little that day,” Calavan said. “The next day I really grew up.”Gayle Vyskocil, a member of the Pearl Harbor Survivors’ Association, laid a wreath outside the base of the USS Arizona memorial. The wreath honored the 2,403 Navy, Marine Corps, Army and civilian men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country. Sailors and attendees also laid carnations over the wreath showing their respect.[mappress]Press Release, December 09, 2013; Image: Wikimedia Training & Educationcenter_img Share this article December 9, 2013last_img read more
