How Dissent Dies

  How Dissent Dies The government’s actions, and its responses to criticism, raise more troubling questions than Narendra Modi’s electoral viability does. Cases such as Fatima’s fit a pattern. In recent years, BJP governments at the federal and state levels, as well as investigative agencies under their power, have arrested a range of people so wide—priests, professors, poets, lawyers, journalists, and stand-up comedians among them—as to turn the act of dissent itself into a jailable offense.

A teenager charged for his alleged part in the gang rape of a 14-year-old girl has been denied bail in a Sydney court. Michael Angok, 18, applied for bail at Parramatta Local Court on Thursday. His lawyers argued he had strong family support, would adhere to a 8.30pm to 6am curfew, would avoid his co-accused and not visit Doonside, the western Sydney suburb where the alleged gang rape occurred. They also said his mother, who was present in court with two of his sisters, was prepared to offer a 00 bond.

A convicted Somali gang rapist is to be released on bail after his deportation was blocked by airline passengers, who staged a revolt to block him from being sent back to his country. “I am also satisfied that the applicant poses a risk of absconding. He failed to comply with bail conditions in the past and was caught attempting to leave the jurisdiction,” the judge admitted . But she said that she was bound by guidance for immigration judges which limits the government’s ability to detain someone for more than six months before they are deported.

In the NSW Supreme Court on Tuesday, Justice Stephen Rothman granted Robinson bail, setting strict conditions amounting to house arrest.

Robinson, who appeared via audio visual link from jail, became noticeably upset when his barrister Joseph Correy outlined his "inhumane" custodial conditions involving being by himself in his cell 23 hours a day.

One of his referees described Robinson as being "a high value target for other inmates" given he previously was in a position of authority over them.

He was depressed, had lost 10 kilos and was at risk of self-harm.

The judge said on any assessment of the independent material, the complainant was "extremely drunk" at the time.

"There are provisions in the legislation that deal with consent in circumstances where an alleged victim is said to have been intoxicated," he said.

Texas family slams judge after suspect in teen’s shooting death freed on bond

  Texas family slams judge after suspect in teen’s shooting death freed on bond Just days after B.J. Taylor, a 17-year-old aspiring Olympic athlete, was shot to death in Houston, the man accused of killing him was freed on bond, according to a report.

A man allegedly involved in a shocking gang rape of a woman in Sydney's north-west last month has been extradited to NSW. Three men are accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting the 37-year-old woman over several hours on Anzac Day . Police say the woman had met the men at a Rouse Hill pub the night before, and was then taken to a Riverstone home where the alleged group sex attack occurred. The woman sought medical treatment at Blacktown Hospital on April 26, before contacting police. NSW detectives, with help from Queensland Police, arrested Joe Noamua Tauiliili at Amberley

The men behind the Anzac Day terror plot had planned to run over a police officer and then kill him with a knife before going on a shooting rampage on the streets of Melbourne. Five teenagers were arrested on Saturday after police foiled their Anzac Day terror plot. Police uncovered swords and knifes after searching the men's homes. Mr Besim did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody for a filing hearing on April 24. The teen was interviewed by police all morning before travelling to the Magistrates Court where he was charged.

The Uber driver who took the group to the home described her as being "as drunk as he had in his experience ever seen" and she had sexually propositioned the men.

Mr Correy said Robinson told police the woman had communicated a "desire for sexual acts" immediately before while they were at the pub, in the Uber and throughout the incident.

In covertly recorded phone calls, his client said the woman "was inviting him to do certain things to her".

But the judge deemed the crown case to be "strong", referring to the material on her intoxication which would bring the issue of consent into play.

Robinson had significant ties to the community, many people had provided character references to the court and he could rely on good character at trial.

The judge also noted his custodial conditions were "significantly more onerous" than those of other inmates, due to his having been a prison officer.

The likely trial would not take place until the first half of 2022.

"What had concerned me the the most is the effect that any conditional liberty will have on the alleged victim," Justice Rothman said.

But this could be dealt with by the proposed bail conditions which amounted to house arrest.

They include residing at a Valley Heights address, reporting to police daily, not leaving the house except for limited set reasons including seeing a psychiatrist, and a ban on alcohol and drugs.

One or more persons have to agree to forfeit $100,000  if he doesn't abide by the conditions,.

His co-accused Joe Noamua Tauiliili, then 31, is in custody on remand, while Josateki Setuata, then 26, is on bail.

The case returns to Penrith Local Court on July 2.
