Oscar Pistorius: Verdict on four shots.

Oscar Pistorius has sat on the dock of the High Court in Pretoria in the past six months at 41 days. 41 times he has worn the almost same clothes: a charcoal gray suit with a bright shirt, to a dark tie. And all these days, the media have observed the Paralympics-star on two legs amputated: each of his statements, every glance, every sob, gagging or sigh. On Thursday, the trial against Pistorius go six months to the end. The 27-year-old is accused of having murdered his girlfriend. One last time dozens of journalists to the seats in the wood-paneled courtroom be deals himself, although the sentencing, as already the whole process before, will broadcast live from three cameras in all over the world. And Once again to fill newspapers and magazines – and dominate discussions at cocktail parties at the Cape exhaustive reports about the supposed process of the century of South Africa. Pistorius has admitted from the outset to have killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his villa in Pretoria on the night of Valentine’s day a year ago. He shot four times by a closed bathroom door. Whether this happened intentionally or by mistake, is can be determined despite scrutiny of weapon, ammunition, door and margin probably never more with last safety. Of even greater importance is the assessment of his person, his character – and especially the State of mind, in which he found himself, as he put off four times during the night.   Prosecutor Gerrie nel believes that Pistorius and his girlfriend fiercely disputed in fact night and the athlete therefore shot the photo model in rage behind the toilet door. There she had entrenched themselves, apparently already in street clothes, with a mobile phone. The defendant, however, also remained in cross-examination by the Prosecutor in his statement, according to which there had been a fatal mistake: he suspected an intruder behind the locked bathroom door and – shot out of fear for their own and the lives of his girlfriend – only on leg stumps standing repeatedly through the door. Exactly here begins a large grey area. The problem of Pistorius that he has clearly exceeded the statutory limit for a self defense tat night because he shot four times through a closed door in a small room, believes criminal booth. Finally he knew that it was a man. Therefore, the judge decides on manslaughter, is the penalty at the discretion of the Court; There is no minimum penalty. However are 10 to 15 years imprisonment in such cases not uncommon. Pistorius could be doomed, that never really succeeded in court to invalidate the impression of someone dominant, fond in his arms. Several times the charge could represent him with success as a reckless young man often choleric, quickly reaching for the gun, without to take responsibility for it later. So two friends and an ex-girlfriend under oath testified, Pistorius took wrathful once through the open sunroof of a moving car in the air, because shortly before a policeman during a vehicle check did not touch the arms of the athlete. It fits into the picture, that Pistorius vigorously contradicted his friends in court and collectively accused they have distorted the incident. .

Chaos Pd in Emilia, Bonaccini in Prosecutor in Bologna. B.s: “the primaries don’t jump”.

"I was happy before, and I am even more happy now. Because I think we could give explanations for any charge». Said Stephen Bonaccini leaving the Prosecutor’s Office in Bologna, where he was heard in the afternoon, adding they are "determined to continue because I know how I have always behaved in recent years». A 4,000 euro doubted Bonaccini of refunds. It would, according to the suspect, "of kilometric reimbursement, some lunches and dinners that were all about the administrative activities in relation with the territory."   To express their concern for the fate of regional primaries, instead, is the third candidate to internal consultation Center scheduled for September 28, the Mayor of Forli Roberto Balzani: «If the primaries in Emilia Romagna were cancelled it would be something very serious. " "I play a game for the Government of the region and are ready to challenge anyone, even an eventual" briscolone "’ said referring to rumors that they would like an impending nomination of a strong name for the ride to the role of Governor. In these hours has spoken specifically about a possible candidacy of Ministers Delrio and Poletti, but also less likely to return to the scene of such candidate Romano Prodi and Pier Luigi Bersani.   But the outsider B.s doesn’t seem to have any intention to give up on the primaries. The Mayor of Forlì, which yesterday resulted in via Rivani his candidacy with about thirty signatures of the Pd’s Regional Assembly, has not wanted to enter into the judicial affair, but agrees with the choice of Richetti to take a step back: "if I were in his place I would do the same but I find a legitimate choice otherbecause these are decisions that concern personal sensitivity».   .

Vibo Valentia provincial, accorduni between renziani and the Ncd.

VIBO VALENTIA-the more angry they call the accorduni, the more moderate chug speaking a nasty mess ups. The fact is that the province of Vibo Valentia are fueling a clash between renziani and the rest of the Democratic Party. A rift that makes the couple with that of similar proportions that is going through the Ncd vibonese. At the center of controversy the agreements that led to the composition of the lists. In Vibo the area refers to the President of the Council would close a real pact with a party piece of Angelino Alfano. An axis to make joint list as opposed to the official nominations of Ncd and Pd on the other. An uproar. In the viewfinder is over the odd coalition that has produced the list Together for the province of Vibo-Now, where the word Now would make explicit reference to one of the slogans of Renzi. A coalition that would hold together pieces to Italy Force, Ncd, brothers of Italy and a part of PD. candidate for President is Andrea Niglia, Mayor of Briatico, given to newly signed character FI and unloved by the Center due to some questionable relationships. In the list there are also city councilors and first citizens of individual municipalities as Raffaele Calla (FI, Serra San Bruno), Michele Carnovale (Ncd, Vibo), Giovanni Macrì (Fi, former provincial leader of the Pdl, di Tropea) and Ovidio Romano (brothers of Italy, Simbario). Alongside their Pasquale Fera (Pd, San Nicola da Crissa) which currently serves on the Board of the regional quota Pd Renzi, Giuseppe Navarra (Pd, Rombiolo) and Carmine Mangiardi (Pd, Sorianello area). A team in direct competition with two other lists. The first is that of the Democratic Party that comes complete with a symbol and is led by Sergio Rizzo, Mayor of Maiorato, which consists of six fellow certified and four independents. The second is that of Ncd-Udc led by Pino Raffaele, Member of the Municipal Council of Serra San Bruno. Behind the agreement between pieces of Ncd and renziani there is the hand of former President of Francesco De Nisi (Pd) and Gianluca Callipo (candidate for regional primaries of the Democratic Party for renziani) that were woven together to plot the regional councillor of the new center of Nazareth Salerno. An operation that, needless to say, he blew up on the Chair the provincial Secretary of the Pd and fed a series of cross-accusations. Dalvi denies everything and from the columns of the local newspaper defends itself by saying that the operation was conducted individually by councilors, adding that at the bottom it is civic lists. Then explains: the problem is that the Democratic Party wanted to use this thing as a political battle. And pulls out from the crowds Callipo: Gianluca in this affair has nothing to do. A thesis that convinces the provincial Secretary Michele Mirabello who did not hesitate to define the agreement with Ncd of renziani an indecent, reiterated by the parliamentary concept of Pd vibonese Brunello Censor. Thus by the words we have moved to requests for resignation of Mirabello by 11 mayors, two deputies, two group leaders and four Councillors. In this sense for the local Pd’s minority the symbol wasn’t used and therefore are not renziani to be off the list of the Democratic Party, but it’s the Pd vibonese and his provincial Secretary that are outside the Pd. Allegations rejected the sender from Mirabello. Analogue of the clash in the Ncd where the provincial Commissioner of the party, Abbas Grillo, asked for the expulsion of the protagonists of the agreement. For the Manager in the decision taken by some to run alongside the provincial Pd’s renziani, identified by those same people as the main political opponents, I don’t think it can be reconciled with membership to a centre-right party. For his part, Nazareno Salerno replied that Cricket considerations must be taken into account for what they are and that is a reaction unmotivated, lacking in logic and especially evident from those without any title to invoke, through measures sanctioning ultimatum or even expulsion. It’s basically open warfare ahead of the September 28 vote when, in one polling station set up at the headquarters of the province Vibo, will be called to vote 445 45 mayors and councilors. .

European Commission: an affront to Merkel.

It had lasted for two months, Wednesday afternoon, it was At last time: Jean-Claude Juncker, the new Chief of the European Commission, its Commissioners presented, with which he wants to lead the Commission in the next five years. The emphasis is on his. The future management of the Brussels Authority bears his signature clearly? And the Luxemburgish rider left no doubt that much more energetic and political will act as the previous Commission under his predecessor Manuel Barroso. On a further point the Chancellor could not prevail: economic and monetary Commissioner is, despite their initial resistance Рthe former French Finance Minister, Pierre Moscovici. Angela Merkel had To want prevent that, because it makes responsible the Socialists for the high levels of debt in his home country and therefore does not trust him, compared to their national Government in Paris and other debt countries like Italy to enforce of the stability pact. Juncker however ignored these concerns and followed the wishes of the French President, Fran̤ois hollande. .

Inna Shevchenko: “in France, the justice is not at the service of religious institutions.

Before going to trial, this morning, we weren’t really some of what was going to happen. For us, it was obvious that we had nothing to reproach ourselves. But at the same time, there was so much fuss autour, more than a year and a half after the action, that was still in doubt. We wondered just what was the purpose of it all. After the result, it simply has the feeling that this is normal. The judge acknowledged that what was alleged against was absolutely ridiculous. The decision has the merit of showing that in France the justice is not at the service of religious institutions, even if they do everything to put pressure, and it can make decisions independently. I dream that one day this kind of decisions can be made in Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and other countries. Obviously, the Court decision is representative of what thinks the judge, which is independent, and not to think the French company. It is true that one has the impression that it becomes more and more conservative and that it is in the middle of something, ready to switch. When I arrived in France, I’m kinda wondering if the Femen had a reason to be here. And very quickly I realized that Yes, of course. It spoke to me of a country free, advanced, the myth around the question of human rights, etc. Six months later, we saw all Catholics in the street against gay marriage, and it marked the beginning of this transformation, this regression. It’s true, but we are accustomed. Last year, in summer, it was already like that. It is a little strange. One has the impression that people who prefer talking rather that Act are happy, and they rejoice each time to say "that’s it, the Femen, c’est fini". Us, striving to make a difference, one is volunteer activists, and instead of incentives, some people, media, a part of society, apolitical people, hope that we will fall. It’s necessarily always more easy to criticize but to act yourself. For two months, no one spoke more too to the media. It was a break to reorganize. We found that having eleven branches of Femen in eleven different countries, who organize each action, it was not always easy to manage. Now it is good, we are restructured. It will soon come back with new ideas. It reflects back in action with new perspectives.   We will try to also organize public events, to open up, to be a little more popular and accessible. .

Ukraine: Kiev promises more autonomy to the East.

Most of the Russian troops have left the Ukraine announced on Wednesday the president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. The withdrawal comes five days after a globally respected truce. He also promised greater autonomy separatist East, which requires independence. In light of this evolution toward a net de-escalation and after several days of delay, the European Union had to decide Wednesday on the implementation of new economic sanctions against Russia for infringement of the sovereignty of the Ukraine. But the Ukraine made no concessions on its territorial integrity, said the Ukrainian president was referring to the signing Friday of a document in twelve points that grants including a special status regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, two rebel strongholds, for the establishment of a provisional autonomous Government and the holding of local elections. A bill guaranteeing greater autonomy to the East will be presented to the Parliament, he said, excluding any discussion on a federalization or any separation (of the eastern regions). Accused by the European Union and the United States to blow hot and cold in this conflict – the most serious since the end of the cold war – the Russia has stated that the Ukraine was responsible for the crash of flight MH17 of Malaysia Airlines in July in the East of the Ukraine. The disaster took place in the airspace of the Ukraine who bears the full responsibility for what has happened, argued the Russian Defence Minister Wednesday, in the wake of the publication of a preliminary report on the crash that left 298 dead. .

+++ Ukraine NewsTicker +++: Poroshenko reports on withdrawal of most Russian soldiers.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has expressed it, to enter quickly into force adopted new EU economic sanctions against Russia. While there is progress, when the ceasefire in the Eastern Ukraine, Merkel said on Wednesday in the Bundestag. But the cease-fire and the release of prisoners are just two of the twelve points of the peace plan negotiated between the Ukraine and Russia. Because there is uncertainty about the performance of many other points, is the Federal Government for a publication and that the imposition of the sanctions. After the publication of the interim report for the crash of the Malaysian aircraft over the Eastern Ukraine Moscow gave once again responsible for the misfortune of leadership in Kiev. The Ukraine responsible for everything, what happens in their airspace, Russia’s Defense Minister Sergej Schoigu said in Moscow on Wednesday after a meeting with his Malaysian colleagues Hishammuddin Hussein. According to the Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, 70 percent of Russian soldiers have now exited the Ukraine and returned to Russian territory. This number called Poroshenko on Wednesday at a cabinet meeting, according to a statement on its website. He invoked the Ukrainian intelligence. That encouraged us further in the hope that there are good prospects of success for the peace initiatives. Moscow rejects the accusation of Ukraine and the West to support the rebels in the East of Ukraine with soldiers and tanks. Martin Schulz, President of the EU Parliament urged the Europeans to unity with Russia sanctions. The decisions are likely to be behind not by the economic interests of individual countries again challenged or softened, Schulz says in the Germany radio. We are taken seriously as the European Union with a common foreign and security policy – in principle, not only in this case – only then, if that what you decide is also at the end, what it does to. The decision to put the sanctions, to wait for the more Russia’s behavior after the ceasefire, for the time being on ice is but reasonable. .
