  1. Reuters journalist Wa Lone, who is based in Myanmar, is seen in this undated picture taken in Myanmar. REUTERS TOKYO/YANGON: The arrest of two Reuters journalists in Yangon this week was a signal that press freedom is shrinking in Myanmar and the international community must do all it can to get them released, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said on Thursday. Guterres said his main concern over Myanmar was the ?dramatic violations of human rights? during a military crackdown in Rakhine State that forced more than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims to flee the country for southern Bangladesh, and the arrest of the journalists was probably related. ?It is clearly a concern in relation to the erosion of press freedom in the country,? he told a news conference in Tokyo, referring to the detention of Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who had been working on stories about the strife in Rakhine State. ?And probably the reason why these journalists were arrested is because they were reporting on what they have seen in relation to this massive human tragedy,? he added. Myanmar?s Ministry of Information said in a statement on Wednesday that the Reuters journalists and two policemen faced charges under the British colonial-era Official Secrets Act. The 1923 law carries a maximum prison sentence of 14 years. The reporters ?illegally acquired information with the intention to share it with foreign media?, the ministry said in its statement, which was accompanied by a photo of the two reporters in handcuffs. Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh say their exodus from the mainly Buddhist nation was triggered by a military offensive in response to Rohingya militant attacks on security forces at the end of August. The United Nations has branded the military?s campaign in Rakhine State ?a textbook example of ethnic cleansing? of the minority Rohingya. Guterres said the international community should do everything possible to secure the journalists? release and freedom of the press in Myanmar. He called for aid to be delivered, violence contained and reconciliation promoted in Rakhine State, and for the Rohingyas? right of return to be fully respected and implemented. Location Unknown Britain has expressed ?grave concerns? to the government of Myanmar over the arrest of the two journalists, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told reporters in London on Thursday. ?We are committed to freedom of speech and people?s ability to report the facts and bring into the public domain what is happening in Rakhine state,? he said. Canada?s Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland tweeted that she was ?deeply concerned? by the reports about the arrests. ?Freedom of the press is essential for democracy and must be preserved,? she said. And the president of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani also called on Myanmar to protect media freedoms and release the two. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo went missing on Tuesday evening after they had been invited to meet police officials over dinner on the outskirts of Yangon. The authorities have not confirmed where the journalists are being held and, as of Thursday evening, Reuters had not been formally contacted by officials about their detention. At Htaunt Kyant police station, where the journalists were charged, family members of Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were told that the pair were being detained at another location by an investigative team. ?They are not here,? said Police Second Lieutenant Tin Htway Oo, according to Pann Ei, wife of reporter Wa Lone. ?The police investigation team took them soon after they were arrested.? He said he did not know where the journalists were, Pann Ei added, but he did tell her they would be brought back to the station in ?two to three days at most.? Reuters could not immediately reach Tin Htway Oo for comment. Police Lieutenant Colonel Myint Htwe of the Yangon Police Division told Reuters the reporters? location would not be disclosed until the investigation was complete. ?It will be known later. Please wait a while,? he said.
  2. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Jahangir Tareen on Friday questioned the reason for his disqualification shortly after the Supreme Court ruled against him in its verdict. The PTI secretary general took to Twitter to express his views following the verdict disqualifying him. ?Accusations Rejected by SC 1) Misuse of authority,loan writeoff 2) Insider Trading 3) Misdeclared Agri income 4) London Property Full money trail accepted not hidden, declared in children's assets since 2011. And SC disqualifies me on mere interpretation of the trust deed???,? he tweeted. The apex court earlier today disqualified Jahangir Tareen but ruled in favour of PTI Chairperson Imran Khan in its judgment on the disqualification case against the two party leaders. The three-member bench had reserved the verdict in the disqualification petition against the two PTI leaders on November 14. Jahangir Tareen disqualified from Parliament With regards to Tareen, the judgment stated that the PTI secretary general had pleaded guilty to insider trading. Tareen cannot be termed honest and stands disqualified for life as per Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, according to the Supreme Court judgment. Imran Khan cleared, Jahangir Tareen disqualified by Supreme Court The three-member bench, headed by the chief justice, announced the verdict after 3:20pm Article 62(1)(f) reads: "A person shall not be qualified to be elected or chosen as a member of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) unless-...he is sagacious, righteous and non-profligate, honest and ameen, there being no declaration to the contrary by a court of law." Moreover, the court ruled that Tareen used suspicious terms in his statements to the court. Tareen did not declare his offshore company, the court stated.
  3. LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif said on Friday that it is a great day in his political career as he has been 'cleared of all the charges'. The chief minister Punjab?s statement cam after the Supreme Court announced its verdict in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case, dismissing the National Accountability Bureau?s request to re-open the case. ?All trumped up charges were defeated through truth,? said Chief Minister Punjab, adding that the Supreme Court gave a historic verdict. ?Have seen several ups and downs lately, grateful to those who supported me? said Shehbaz Sharif. Earlier on Friday, a three-member apex court bench dismissed the NAB's appeal to reopen the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case. Hearing the case since November 28, the court announced its judgment today in a majority decision. The one-line order, read out by Justice Alam, states that NAB's appeal to reopen the case is dismissed and a detailed verdict will be issued later. The Rs1.2 billion Hudaibiya Paper Mills case, involving money laundering charges against the Sharif family, was initiated by NAB in 2000 but quashed by the Lahore High Court (LHC) in 2014. The NAB had appealed the LHC decision in the Supreme Court. It was in relation to this case that the Sharif family's trusted aide, Ishaq Dar, recorded a confessional statement on April 25, 2000 in front of a magistrate in Lahore accepting his role in laundering money. That reference was struck down by a referee judge of the LHC on March 11, 2014 in response to a writ petition filed in 2011 stating that Dar's confession was coerced.
  4. Congress leader Sonia Gandhi. Photo taken from NDTV NEW DELHI: The leader of India?s main opposition party Congress, Sonia Gandhi, has retired as the party chief a day before her son Rahul Gandhi replaces her, Indian media reported Friday. ?My role is now to retire,? she told NDTV. The leader has stepped down from her position as the party president after her son was elected unopposed and will take charge as the new chief Saturday. While talking to NDTV on Friday, Sonia said that it has been her son Rahul, 47, who has been helping her make decisions on vital issues pertaining to the party. Sonia, 71, entered politics in 1994, a few years after her husband former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated. She was the president of Congress since 1998 and was elected to the Indian parliament in 1999. Although she is stepping down from her position in the party, Sonia is not retiring from politics and will continue as the member of the parliament, Indian media quoted Congress sources as saying. Rahul Gandhi named Congress president Rahul was names the new leader of Congress on December 11. On the occasion, Senior Congress leader Mullappally Ramachandran had said the 47-year-old had stood unopposed for election as the president of the party that his family had led for generations. "I hereby declare Shri Rahul Gandhi elected as the president of the Indian National Congress," he told reporters outside the Congress headquarters in New Delhi on Monday. The announcement capped years of speculation that the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty would take over from his mother who led the party for nearly two decades. Rahul, whose father, grandmother and great-grandfather all served as prime minister, has been her deputy since 2013 and led the campaign for the last general election. He will officially take over on Saturday at a ceremony in New Delhi. Congress party workers let off firecrackers and cheered as they celebrated the announcement. "I have waited for this day for so many years. My joy knows no bounds," said Prem Chowdhury, a long-time party member and former municipal councillor. Rahul was strongly criticised for a lacklustre campaign for the 2014 general election, in which Congress recorded its worst-ever showing and lost power to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Since the national election defeat, the party has lost polls in many states to the BJP, exposing him to further criticism. But few inside the party have been willing publicly to criticise the family that has been at its helm for generations.
  5. PTI Chairman Imran Khan talks to the media in Karachi. Photo: Geo News KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan thanked God on Friday following his victory at the Supreme Court which cleared him in the disqualification case against him and party leader Jahangir Tareen. Addressing the media, Imran said the case against him was filed by a [suspected] drug smuggler and dragged on for a year. "Thank God all the money trail and evidence was presented to the Supreme Court," he said, adding that, ?I gave 60 documents to the Supreme Court?. He claimed that ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif has to answer for taking out Rs300 billion from the country and only submitted one document ? the Qatari letter ? in the apex court during the Panama Papers case. "I?m hurt that I was compared to Nawaz. I was a cricketer who brought back halal money to the country [while Nawaz is a] money launderer," he claimed. Talking about disqualified party leader, Imran said he is very sad about Tareen as he is the highest tax paying businessman in the country and the trust [on the basis of which he was disqualified] was in his children's name. He criticised the National Accountability Bureau over its role in the Hudaibiya case, which was quashed by the Supreme Court earlier today. Answering a question, he said the party pays when it uses the aircraft of party members.
  6. ISLAMABAD: Federal minister and Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) leader Daniyal Aziz on Friday said that Jahangir Tareen was sacrificed to save Imran Khan and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf. Aziz's remarks came after the Supreme Court disqualified PTI Secretary General Jahangir Tareen but ruled in favour of PTI Chairperson Imran Khan in its judgment on the disqualification case against the two party leaders. Aziz alleged that political engineering is in play as the apex court has said it, Khursheed Shah and Farooq Sattar have said it too. "If the decision was fair, then Imran Khan and PTI would not be around anymore," said Aziz. The PML-N leader, further criticising the opposition party, stated that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has been ordered to probe PTI's foreign funding for the last five years, while in Nawaz's case, the probe went back decades. He further asked why millions of dollars received by Imran Khan earlier were hidden. Imran Khan cleared, Jahangir Tareen disqualified by Supreme Court The three-member bench, headed by the chief justice, announced the verdict after 3:20pm Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Maryam Aurangzeb added to Aziz's statement and said the decision was not surprising. "Nawaz Sharif, during his GT road rally, had also said that one law can not have two sides," said the minister. She added that on one hand Nawaz was disqualified on the basis of an Iqama and receivable income which he did not withdraw, while on the other hand, existence of an offshore company and foreign funding was said to have no bearing on the case. Aurangzeb also alleged that Imran and PTI receive funds from Jews and Hindus and that money is uded to conduct sit-ins and slow the progress in the country. The three-member bench had reserved the verdict in the disqualification petition against the two PTI leaders on November 14. Reading the judgment, the chief justice ruled that Imran is not disqualified as a parliamentarian as the petitioner was not directly affected in the foreign funding case. The court also ruled that the ECP will impartially investigate the foreign funding claims against the PTI chief by scrutinising accounts up till five years ago. The judgment states that Imran wasn't bound to declare his offshore company, declared his London flat in an amnesty scheme and that his former wife Jemima gave Imran the funds for buying the Bani Gala estate. Jahangir Tareen disqualified from Parliament The judgment stated that the PTI secretary general had pleaded guilty to insider trading. Tareen cannot be termed honest and stands disqualified for life as per Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, according to the Supreme Court judgment. Article 62(1)(f) reads: "A person shall not be qualified to be elected or chosen as a member of Majlis-e-Shoora (Parliament) unless-...he is sagacious, righteous and non-profligate, honest and ameen, there being no declaration to the contrary by a court of law." Moreover, the court ruled that Tareen used suspicious terms in his statements to the court. It was also stated in the judgment that the court is not announcing its decision on Tareen's agriculture land matter. Tareen did not declare his offshore company, the court stated. The case The case was heard by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar, who headed the three-member bench, which included Justices Umar Ata Bandial and Faisal Arab. On Oct 18, the chief justice had remarked that the verdict of both the cases will be given together. The petition, filed by PML-N's Abbasi, sought Tareen and Imran's disqualification over non-disclosure of their assets and ownership of offshore companies. Abbasi had filed the petition in November last year. It accused the PTI leaders of not declaring their assets to the Election Commission of Pakistan and violations of the lncome Tax Ordinance, 1979, and Peoples Act, 1974. It also claimed that the PTI is a 'foreign-funded' party.
  7. PTI spokesman Fawad Chaudhry speaking to media earlier today ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) spokesman Fawad Chaudhry said party leader Jahangir Tareen was disqualified on technical grounds in one of the three charges against him. Addressing reporters outside the Supreme Court after the disqualification of the party?s secretary general, Chaudhry said the PTI will file a review petition against the disqualification. "The point under which Tareen has been disqualified is a technical one. We will go for a review petition. The [Supreme Court] decision is 99% in favour of PTI and 1% against it. Overall the judgment has vindicated our stance," the PTI spokesman said. He went on to say that Tareen had declared his property details in his sons? accounts but had not declared them in the election papers. ?There is no competition between Imran Khan and the Panama mafia,? he remarked. Speaking to the media in Lahore, PTI leader Shafqat Mahmood said it was a historic day in the Supreme Court today. In a message, PTI ally Sheikh Rasheed said Imran owes his victory in the apex court to former wife Jemima. He suggested that the PTI chief should marry Jemima [once more]. "No one can stop Imran from becoming the prime minister now," he claimed further. Tareen gone, Imran stays The Supreme Court on Friday disqualified PTI Secretary General Jahangir Tareen but ruled in favour of PTI Chairperson Imran Khan in its judgment on the disqualification case against the two party leaders.

  10. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu/File photo JERUSALEM: Fraud squad detectives questioned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his Jerusalem residence on Friday, the seventh time in a nearly year-long corruption probe, reports said. Public radio and two privately-owned TV channels said that investigators arrived at the house shortly before 9:00 am (0700 GMT). Police policy is not to comment until the day´s questioning has been completed. The radio said an investigation into suspicions Netanyahu received luxury gifts from wealthy supporters, including Israeli businessman and Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan and Australian tycoon James Packer, was nearing completion. "This is likely to be his last interrogation" on the gifts case, it said. "After that the police intend to wrap up the case within a short time." The Maariv newspaper reported that detectives believed they had sufficient evidence to pass the file to the state prosecutor. "The police are still deliberating whether to attribute to Netanyahu the offence of bribe-taking or receiving benefits," Maariv said. The prime minister was first questioned on January 2. Investigations are expected to continue in a second case in which police suspect that Netanyahu sought a secret pact for favourable coverage with the publisher of the top-selling Yediot Aharonot newspaper. The alleged scheme, not believed to have been finalised, would have seen Netanyahu receive favourable coverage in return for helping curb Yediot´s competitor, the pro-Netanyahu freesheet Israel Hayom. Netanyahu has consistently denied any wrongdoing, and says he has been the target of a smear campaign by political opponents.

  12. PTI Spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry addressing the media outside the Supreme Court. Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry said on Friday that the way the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) presented its appeal before the Supreme Court, "this was bound to happen". He was referring to the apex court's dismissal of NAB's plea to reopen the Rs1.2 billion Hudaibiya Paper Mills reference against the Sharif family. The reference was struck down by the Lahore High Court. Imran submitted all documents before the Supreme Court. Addressing the media outside the Supreme Court, Chaudhry said they have serious reservations over the conduct of NAB's prosecution department in the case. Criticising the "non-serious attitude of NAB," Chaudhry said the "Supreme Court judges were not guided the right way. Basic documents of the case were not attached to the appeal". Supreme Court dismisses NAB's appeal to reopen Hudaibiya Paper Mills case Three-member SC bench was hearing NAB's appeal against LHC decision to quash investigation of case He said the case involves loot of public funds, adding that it is a great disservice to the people if there is no probe into the matter. The PTI leader said if a PTI government is formed, they will take the matter to its logical conclusion. He added that the party will review the detailed order of the case once the detailed judgment is released.
  13. So guys, the word of the year has finally been announced and umm… it kind of makes us feel a little bad about our vocabulary and might do the same to you. We'll tell you why. When Oxford English Dictionary declares its 'Word of The Year', one would expect to have heard it at least once. And if not heard it from someone's mouth, maybe read it. Right? But when a word, that most of us have probably never even heard of in the entire year is given that title, we are bound to feel inadequate. Without further ado, we're gonna go ahead and tell you. Are you ready? The Word of the Year is *drumrolls* 'YOUTHQUAKE'. via GIPHY No, we haven't made a mistake. It isn't earthquake, it is indeed, Youthquake. YOUTHQUAKE is the Oxford Dictionaries #WordOfTheYear 2017. Find out more: https://t.co/BanfCMh2Gi pic.twitter.com/iIQ4ykwUwa — Oxford Dictionaries (@OxfordWords) December 14, 2017 If you have heard of it before, congratulations! We are proud. But if you haven't, join the club. Youthquake is defined by Oxford Dictionary as "a significant cultural, political, or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people." via GIPHY To make you feel a little worse, we should tell that the word actually dates all the way back to the 1960s after the editor of Vogue, Diana Vreeland made it up to describe how British youth were changing fashion and music around the world. And its relevance increased in 2017 during the UK general elections and the rise of young political engagement in the Labour Party. The word was chosen after careful consideration from among the few shortlisted ones. And guess what? Most of us have probably never heard of any of those either, except for one- Unicorn. The others were: 1. Antifa- a political protest movement comprising autonomous groups affiliated by their militant opposition to fascism and other forms of extreme right-wing ideology 2. Broflake- a man who is readily upset or offended by progressive attitudes that conflict with his more conventional or conservative views 3. Gorpcore- a style of dress incorporating utilitarian clothing of a type worn for outdoor activities 4. Kompromat- compromising information collected for use in blackmailing, discrediting, or manipulating someone, typically for political purposes 5. Milkshake Duck- a person or thing that initially inspires delight on social media but is soon revealed to have a distasteful or repugnant past 6. Newsjacking- the practice of taking advantage of current events or news stories in such a way as to promote or advertise one's product or brand 7. White fragility- discomfort and defensiveness on the part of a white person when confronted by information about racial inequality and injustice It's okay. Take a minute to absorb this information. via GIPHY On hearing this news, Twitterverse was obviously not very pleased. We know how that feels. Me pretending I know what a #youthquake is. pic.twitter.com/pmWt7X7r1S — Amanda (@Pandamoanimum) December 15, 2017 Us right now! The Dictionary people: the word of 2017 is #youthquake! Everyone else: pic.twitter.com/N7T5cyxGGH — Alex Davies (@alexanderdavies) December 15, 2017 True story! I run a charity for young people. This is not a word that I have ever heard used. Anywhere. By Anyone.#Youthquake https://t.co/mJpHnnpK4X — Ruth Ibegbuna (@MsIbegbuna) December 15, 2017 On a side note, it does. #youthquake sounds like a really unappetising pancake..... — Lucy (@0312bright) December 15, 2017 Still cannot absorb this. Oxford Dictionary: announces #youthquake as word of the year Everyone: pic.twitter.com/K8eKyXyLAX — Liz Tyler (@LizTyler) December 15, 2017 Some people absolutely cannot accept this. No one in the history of the world has ever used the word #youthquake Not even the person who made the word up. It's not even a word. — Terri Lowe ð (@HelloTerriLowe) December 15, 2017 Indeed a better idea. Throwing a dictionary at a youthquake is a better idea... https://t.co/4DKsoXSPZF — Zach Ward (@UnrealZachWard) December 15, 2017 LMAO 'Youthquake' sounds the name of a dance group that gets knocked out of Britain's Got Talent in the first round. — cluedont (@cluedont) December 15, 2017 Oh well… I believe in Santa more than I believe in #youthquake as it's the first time I heard that word today and it's my job to know these things so... — Caroline O'Grady (@yo_grady) December 15, 2017 Here's the truth As a youth worker who frequently dabs and says 'sup everyone' I can confirm no youth ever use the word #youthquake ever. — Craig Bryant Ù‎ (@Bryanttie) December 15, 2017 Well, we are just disappointed that 'Milkshake Duck' lost to 'Youthquake'. At least, it sounds funny.
  14. Talal Chaudhry/File photo ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Interior and PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry hailed the Supreme Court?s decision on Friday to dismiss the National Accountability Bureau (NAB)'s appeal to reopen the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case. Speaking to Geo News, Talal said the Supreme Court?s decision is a win for the courts and the judiciary as it protects the courts? dignity. ?I have always said this, the courts should stay away from cases motivated by political gains. Today?s decision by Pakistan?s top court translates into a victory for the courts, as it protects and restores the courts? dignity,? he said. Asked if the decision was a positive development for his party, the PML-N leader said he feels it is a neutral decision because there was nothing to the case from the start. ?[Such] cases are politically motivated. [Hudaibiya] case could not even stand its ground during the black era of Musharraf.? Supreme Court dismisses NAB's appeal to reopen Hudaibiya Paper Mills case Three-member SC bench was hearing NAB's appeal against LHC decision to quash investigation of case He reiterated that courts should not take up cases motivated by political gains, since it went against their dignity. ?As a political worker, I?d say this: the courts and institutions should stay away from political matters so that their dignity is maintained,? he remarked. Analysts? reaction Senior journalist Saleem Safi termed the Supreme Court?s dismissal of NAB appeal as a win for the ruling PML-N party and said if the Hudaibiya case had reopened, the Sharif family?s difficulties would have increased. ?It was clear that if this case had reopened, more difficulties would have been created for the Sharif family and the opposition would have received a boost. Now that the country?s top court has dismissed NAB?s appeal to reopen the case, the only pressure remaining on CM Punjab Shehbaz Sharif is the Model Town report,? he remarked on Geo News. The veteran journalist added that he believes matters of political significance and repercussions should not be brought before the judiciary. Senior journalist Mazhar Abbas said the Hudaibiya case had held a lot of importance for the opposition. ?It is now PML-N?s turn to play on this victory,? he said, noting that if PTI chief Imran Khan emerges victorious in the disqualification case verdict today, ?his position would be strong in the 2018 election since his narrative against corruption would get vindicated.?
  15. Till now, having a beard was just a part of vanity. Although some people take it a little too seriously (like their life depends on it), never in a man's life would he have thought that having a beard could give him thousands of rupees. via GIPHY If by now we haven't caught your interest, we are sure you are lying. Are you telling us that getting a thousand bucks an hour for having your beard stroked isn't a dream job? Agreed the stroking part can be a little, umm…weird but still. Let us tell you the details. A male grooming brand called 'Mo Bro' is about to open the world's first beard stroking station. Honestly, it does sound a little absurd but we assure you they are basically just doing public service. The brand is recruiting bearded men to be the subjects of the station and will pay $40 per hour that roughly equals to Rs 2600. via GIPHY All of this would take place around Christmas because, apparently, Christmas shopping takes a toll on people and they would not miss out on the opportunity to do anything that can help relieve that stress. Reportedly 'warm touches' between humans release Oxytocin, the hormone that reduces the levels of the stress hormone. Savan Dattani, co-founder of Mo Bro's, said, “Christmas is a stressful time of year for most people. You're in a mad rush trying to buy presents, food and drink, whilst juggling work, a family and other commitments. We had a think of how we could make this situation more enjoyable, and it suddenly came to us - a beard stroking station! We have a few guys with fantastic beards already signed up, but we could do with a few more because we anticipate demand to be high. Santa beards preferred, but not essential! But before you get way too excited, calm down your horses because here comes the not-so-fun part. The pop-up will be opened at Highcross Shopping Centre in Leicester, England. via GIPHY But if by any chance you are in England, you can definitely take part. The beard stroking station will be open to people who register online beforehand. Prices for stroking a beard will cost £5 per 5 minutes, and all profits made will be donated to charity. The brand does have a small condition though. Interested candidates should have a beard that's at least 2-inches long. You can apply here.
