The petition has been filed by the People’s Charioteer Organization urging the Supreme Court to frame guidelines to prevent custodial torture/ deaths/ rapes, in exercise of its inherent power under Article 142 of the Constitution, in the interest of justice. Custodial Deaths : What Is The Procedure For Inquiry? The Petitioner-organization, through Advocates Shashwat Anand and Devesh Saxena, has submitted that custodial violence is an acute demonstration of a broken criminal justice system and failure to effectively uphold legal protection against police abuse. The petition has been filed in the wake of custodial deaths of Jeyaraj-Bennix Custodial Deaths case. This incident, the Petitioner submitted, “underlines afresh the urgent need for institutional correctives within the policing system in this country and the acute need for India to enact a strong law to prohibit and prosecute cases of torture and custodial deaths, in fulfilment of its legal obligations, both national and international, to guarantee protection to right to life.” It is submitted that such incidents are a sheer violation of fundamentals rights guaranteed under Article 14 and 21 of the Constitution and there is an imminent need for “institutional correctives”. It is pointed out that despite the fact that cases of custodial torture/deaths/rapes have increased manifolds, none of the recommendation as given by the previous committees or the recommendations given by the various Reports of the Law Commission have been considered or taken seriously by the Central Government. Jeyaraj-Bennix Custodial Deaths: Bring In Law Against Torture, Ratify UN Convention Against Torture; CHRI Urges Centre Therefore, the Petitioner has urged the Court to fill the gaping legal lacunae and ensure an effective and purposeful framework to prevent custodial violence. It has also sought a direction upon the Central Government to form an “Independent Committee” consisting of members from all the relevant departments/ ministries to review the entire legal framework and find pitfalls in the existing legal framework in order to curb the menace of custodial torture/deaths/rapes. The said Committee, the Petitioner has sought, should be monitored by the Supreme Court itself, to ensure that the legislative framework is re-hauled in consonance with the guidelines laid down by the Courts.

A new direct-debit rent collection system that significantly reduces the amount of time agents spend chasing late or non-payment of rent, and that takes tenants “minutes to set up” has been launched.Created by Lincoln-based firm PAID & CO, which is part of the Barbon Insurance Group that owns Homelet, the system uses a “socially positive incentive” carrot-and-stick approach to reward regular payers.The PAID & CO system is a cloud application and replaces traditional standing orders, which can be cancelled by tenants in order to avoid paying rent, with a web-based tool that uses BACS payments.Unofficial overdraft“Financially astute tenants often cancel standing orders ahead of when rent was due, effectively using their rent payments as an ‘unofficial overdraft’ to help meet other living costs,” the company says.Its system rewards regular rent payers with better credit scores across the UK’s three main reference agencies, SMS and email reminders of when rent is due, real-time direct debit cancellation alerts for agents and a payment ‘retry’ service.The company quotes recent Homelet research that shows half of all landlords have had a ‘problem tenant’, that two-thirds of difficulties with tenants involve rent arrears and that 68% of landlords have experienced problems with late payments.It is claimed that the tech developed by PAID & CO enables letting agents to identify serial non-payers more quickly, rather wasting time chasing tenants who have forgotten to pay their rent.Paid & Co also provides client letting agents with a real-time dashboard of payments, allowing quick and easy reconciliation.“The use of technology, along with easy to implement direct debits, has greatly benefited other sectors – our goal is to apply similar technology to create a major step forward for the letting market,” says Tim Rooney, CEO of PAID & CO (pictured, left)“We designed our system to remove the hassle from rent collection and, through greater transparency, foster a positive, collaborative approach between letting agents and tenants. Letting agents will have much less administration, and tenants will get recognition of good rental payment which will support an improved credit rating.”PAID & CO HomeLet Tim rooney June 29, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Following its inaugural success last year, Cornish Pasty Week is to return this year from Sunday 24 February to Saturday 2 March.The week, which is devised and run by the Cornish Pasty Association, will this year include Cornish pasty mascots Mr & Mrs Pasty taking a tour of Cornwall, calling in on classic landmarks to try some classic Cornish pastimes.As it did last year, the week will end with the World Pasty Championships, taking place on Saturday 2 March at the Eden Project.“We dipped our toe in the water with Cornish Pasty Week last year and were blown away by the response, with people picking up on it as far away as the Falklands,” said Jason Jobling, chair of the Cornish Pasty Association.“We’d love it to become a week of fun that people look forward to every year, with our prized Cornish pasty at its heart.” Cornish Pasty Week will also feature a challenge to find the world’s fastest crimper, drawing competitors from any bakery producing genuine, certified, Cornish pasties. Heats will take place during the week, with the grand finale scheduled on the main stage at the World Pasty Championships on 2 March.In another new move, the association’s members will be joining forces to treat some of the county’s hardest-working people with surprise Cornish pasty giveaways throughout the week. This year’s recipients will include emergency and rescue services, and the Cornish Pasty Association is asking people to nominate deserving crews.
Star Files View Comments Laura Osnes After a long, hard week of work (and by “work,” we mean watching YouTube videos), there’s nothing better than pouring a martini, opening a giant bag of these and catching up on this week’s Broadway news! Some really weird stuff happened this week: Aaron Tveit sang “The Thong Song,” Sutton Foster scolded us about our cell phone use and Norm Lewis proved that he might be better suited to play Christine than the Phantom. Check out the Lessons of the Week below!Aaron Tveit Wants to See That ThongYou heard us. Aaron Tveit’s go-to shower song is the 2000 Sisqo classic “The Thong Song.” He even performed a snippet for us (complete with some scrubbing under the arms) on Show People. You’re welcome, Tumblr. You’re welcome.Sutton Foster Knows You’re TextingBefore you return that one super-important text from your Grandma during Sutton Foster’s big 11 o’clock number, just remember this: SHE CAN SEE YOU! The Tony winner tweeted this very statement, leading us to believe someone actually had the nerve to do this. For shame!Norm Lewis Sings Higher Than SierraWhat did we learn from this week’s episode of Daae Days? Well, for one, Sierra Boggess looks great in the Phantom’s Red Death costume. But we also learned that her co-star Norm Lewis has a really gorgeous, womanly falsetto. Anyone up for Freaky Friday: Phantom of the Opera Edition?The Royal Family Is Moving to IowaSantino Fontana and Laura Osnes are the closest we mere subjects have to Broadway royalty (well, except Queen Lesli)—so we’re overjoyed to see them teaming up in a concert version of The Music Man. Oh, and BTW? We so called this. Never underestimate the power of Broadway.com dreamcasting.Adam Jacobs Always Carries Hair StuffIn the cast of Aladdin, you’d think Courtney Reed, who plays Princess Jasmine, would be the star most concerned about her coif. Nope, it’s Adam Jacobs, who carries a bottle of hair product with him wherever he goes! You never know when you might need a little touch-up, right, Tracy Turnblad—oops, we mean Adam?Burgers Are Part of the Cinderella DietBefore nabbing the title role in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, Cinderella star Paige Faure had childhood dreams of becoming a ballet dancer. Then, a greater love made her reconsider: “I realized I really like eating burgers and stuff.” It’s nice to know princesses enjoy Shake Shack just as much as the rest of us.Steve Martin Can’t MultitaskMr. Martin, we’re psyched that you’re hard at work on your new musical Bright Star with Edie Brickell. But do you really have to take a “Twitter hiatus” to keep yourself from getting distracted? Lin-Manuel Miranda managed to write two musicals (one full-length, one mini) this year while tweeting every 3.5 seconds—it’s not that hard.Rum Tum Tugger Is a Raptastic CatCats is prowling back to the West End, and all of our favorite felines are back, including Grizabella, Rumpleteaser and of course, Rum Tum Tugger. Oh, except Andrew Lloyd Webber says the curious cat is going to be a rapper this time. If he doesn’t wear a silver mouse medallion and lap milk from a pimp cup, we’re going to be very disappointed.LaChanze Is the Keeper of the SnacksIf you find yourself backstage at If/Then, make sure to stop by Tony winner LaChanze’s dressing room. One, because she’s awesome. Two, because she has all the good snacks. (Oh, and if you want to grab some extra Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreos, we’d be happy to take them off your hands.)Idina Menzel Knows How to Play BallAmerica is the land of the free and the home of If/Then star Idina Menzel, so naturally, she’s singing the National Anthem at the MLB All-Stars game. Here’s what we’re picturing: Menzel stands in the outfield, and when she sings “rockets red glare,” a hydraulic lift shoots her into the sky in a puff of green smoke. If this happened at every baseball game, we’d actually watch baseball.

Photo Courtesy of Compass Points MediaA man who had been on the FBI’s most wanted list for several years was detained at Trail Days in Damascus, Virginia last Saturday. James T. Hammes, 53, who was known to thru-hikers by his trail name Bismarck, has been wanted by the FBI since 2006 for allegedly embezzling more than $8 million. For the last six years Hammes has been avoiding federal authorities by spending his days hiking on America’s most famous footpath. Authorities were tipped off about Hammes’ whereabouts when a Mississippi resident who had previously hiked on the AT with Hammes recognized him on an episode of American Greed. Read more.Originally from Germany, Niki Rellon has always led an active lifestyle, teaching ski lessons in Colorado and thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in 2006. But when she lost her leg in a tragic repelling accident in Utah, Rellon’s way of life came to screeching halt. “I broke my pelvis, my spine, shredded my entire left foot. It was so damaged we had to amputate,” she told WCYB of Virginia. As a way to cope with the perils of life with one leg and stave off what some would consider inevitable depression, Rellon, a former professional boxer, is attempting a thru-hike of the AT. If she completes the hike, she will will be the first female amputee to ever do so. Learn more.
