Myanmar charges Suu Kyi, giving legal basis to detain her

first_imgYANGON, Myanmar (AP) — Allies of Myanmar’s deposed leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, say she has been charged with a crime. The move gives the new military government grounds to continue her detention as it announced plans to investigate the recent election her party won by a landslide. At a government compound where other lawmakers had been confined since Monday, lines of cars, with the lawmakers inside, were seen leaving on Wednesday afternoon. Amid calls for nonviolent resistance to the coup, residents in Yangon honked horns and made loud noises after nightfall, and medical workers have declared they won’t work for the new military government.last_img read more

Lewis Hall prepares for signature event

first_imgOver 800 people have RSVP’d on Facebook, for the Lewis House of Pancakes (LHOP), Lewis Hall’s signature fundraising event.From 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. all four floors of Lewis Hall — plus the basement — will offer a variety of breakfasts foods, including bacon, cinnamon rolls, pancakes, eggs and juice.“We don’t really have to do a lot of encouraging, everyone just wants to be a part of LHOP,” Lewis Hall president, junior Lizett Pink said. “You can’t really hide from LHOP because it happens right there on every single floor.”For five dollars, students receive entry and a plate for unlimited access to the food. Proceeds from ticket sales are donated to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana, a charity that Lewis Hall hopes to expand their relationship with over the course of the year. “Now we’re trying to go and volunteer there and learn more about them,” Pink said.Signature events co-commissioners sophomores Annie Hynes and Sarah Hynds are coordinating the event.“[Hynes and Hynds] have done so much of the planning,” Pink said. “It’s been awesome.” Hynes said residents of Lewis get involved in the event in a variety of ways. “We send out one spreadsheet and it has shifts for everything throughout the week,” Hynes said. “There’s a lot of involvement throughout the whole process that people can do.” She said some residents promote the event by wearing the chicken suit — the hall’s mascot — and chalking the sidewalks. Others sell tickets, set up for the event or cook the food.Pink hopes to see an attendance of 1,500 or more this year — 300 more than last year’s event — and to bring in a larger profit for the Food Bank of Northern Indiana. “This year we got enough funding from [the Student Activities Office] to cover the entire cost of LHOP,” she said.Hynds said the event not only raises money for a local charity, but also fosters a sense of community within the dorm. “It brings a lot of spirit within our own dorm and really gets people together,” Hynds said. Pink said the event also builds a sense of community outside of the dorm.“My favorite part — other than the food — is that we kind of open up Lewis so that all of campus can come,” she said. “I think it’s a really good community builder. Just bringing everyone together and bonding over food is great.”Students can purchase tickets at the door or at North and South Dining Halls from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday.“It really brings Lewis together as well as I feel like people from across campus,” Pink said. “Why shouldn’t you come to LHOP? It’s going to be so fun.”Tags: dorm life, lewis hall, lewis signature event, LHOP, Student Activities Officelast_img read more

first_img continue reading » Edward Rostohar, 62, the former president/CEO of the $21 million CBS Employees Federal Credit Union, is scheduled to be sentenced in September after he pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud Monday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles.In a plea deal he signed with federal prosecutors on May 10, Rostohar admitted to stealing more than $40 million from the Studio City, Calif. credit union over two decades, one of the industry’s largest embezzlements in recent years.The former executive also agreed to forfeit millions of dollars in assets and properties in California, Nevada and Mexico that he purchased with the stolen credit union funds.Before 2000 and continuing through March 2019, he falsified records to make it appear that the credit union was profitable when in fact it was losing millions. Rostohar told investigators he managed to conceal his fraud because he had an insider’s knowledge as a trained accountant and as a former NCUA examiner.

Palace denies 2014 Papua killings constitute gross  human rights violation

first_imgPresidential Chief of Staff Moeldoko has expressed his disagreement with the National Commission on Human Rights’ (Komnas HAM) recent declaration that the shootings in Paniai, Papua in December 2014 were a “gross human rights violation”.“We need to look at [the case] correctly. It must be seen properly because it was not a structured, systematic event. There were no direct orders from those in charge,” Moeldoko told journalists at the Presidential Staff Office in Central Jakarta on Monday.The incident, also referred to as the Bloody Paniai case, occurred when security forces opened fire at a crowd of demonstrators in the Karel Gobay Field in Madi district, Paniai regency, after the demonstrators threw stones at a military office. The protests were sparked by allegations that Army personnel had beaten local youths. Four high school students were killed instantly and one died later in hospital. They were Otianus Gobai, 18, Simon Degei, 18, Yulian Yeimo, 17, Abia Gobay, 17, and Alfius Youw, 17. Twenty-one other civilians were injured in the incident.Moeldoko, who was the Indonesian Military (TNI) commander at the time of the shooting, said that he did not think that the actions of the military personnel involved had been premeditated.Read also: ’We demand proof, not promises’: Papuans urge Jokowi to bring justice to Paniai tragedy“In my opinion, what the security forces did was a sudden reaction because they were attacked, which caught them by surprise. There was no policy to do such a thing. We need to look at it carefully and not come to inaccurate conclusions,” he said. Five years after the high-school students were shot, Komnas HAM issued its findings that the authorities had carried out “gross human rights violations” by killing and persecuting civilians.“This incident constitutes a crime against humanity,” the commission’s chief investigator Muhammad Choirul Anam said in a statement on Monday, as reported by AFP.The commission interviewed two dozen witnesses, analyzed documents and visited Paniai to determine whether the military was responsible for the deaths.Komnas HAM said it had forwarded its dossier on the incident to the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) for possible prosecution.
