High-achieving UII student to be stripped of honors after 30 women report him for alleged sexual abuse

first_imgTopics : IM was known as a popular student on the campus because of academic achievements and for speaking on religious matters at various discussions.”There were various patterns to the way he sexually harassed and abused his victims. We have identified four common patterns,” Meila said.The first pattern, Meila said, was by communicating via Instagram. IM, Meila said, would begin by initiating a conversation with his victims under the guise of trying to motivate them to succeed in their studies. IM would later take the conversation in a sexual direction.The second pattern was by video call, in which IM would allegedly expose his genitalia to the victim as soon as she answered the call.He also reportedly lured in women by selling IELTS and TOEFL practice books and asking them to pay with cash on delivery, before inviting the women to his dorm where he would engage in inappropriate and unwanted physical contact, such as hugging them from behind.He also allegedly used force to assault his victims, such as by grabbing their thighs or forcing them to kiss him.Meila said the majority of his victims were his juniors on his campus, who idolized him because of his achievements.”We recognized there was a power imbalance in these relationships. IM used his influence and his gentle persona to manipulate his victims into trusting him,” she said.She said none of the women had reported their cases to the police.”The survivors only want IM to acknowledge his wrongdoings, and demand institutions, communities and organizations stop putting him in the spotlight, including UII. They also want the university to create regulations on sexual abuse prevention on campus,” Melia continued, adding that LBH Yogyakarta was already conducting an investigation into the case should the women want to take legal action.Of the 30 reports received by LBH Yogyakarta, some of the women had submitted their reports to @UIIBergerak, the university’s antisexual abuse campaign on Instagram, as well as to Instagram user @fasyateixera. Some students also reported IM directly to the university’s Law and Ethics Bureau.IM responded to the allegations via Instagram, stating he been wrongly accused and that he forgave those who had accused. He hand wrote a three-page “clarification letter” and published photographs of each page on his account and also shared a picture of his work desk where the letter was placed near a string of tasbih (prayer beads).”To all my good friends who had have participated in this slander against me, I have already forgiven you before you have realized your mistakes. What happened to me today is the fate that Allah has given me,” he wrote in the letter.He said he wanted to meet with those “who felt disadvantaged” by him to settle the matter properly.Through the #NamaBaikKampus (Campus Reputation) campaign last year, in collaboration with Tirto.id and VICE Indonesia, The Jakarta Post received 174 testimonies from survivors of sexual abuse from 79 state, private and religious-based universities in 29 cities across the country. Roughly half of the survivors said they did not report the sexual abuse to anyone (dpk/evi) As many as 30 female students from the Indonesian Islamic University (UII) in Yogyakarta have come forward and reported IM, an alumni of the school, to the Yogyakarta Legal Aid Institute (LBH Yogyakarta) for alleged sexual abuse.IM, who graduated from UII’s school of architecture, is currently studying for a master’s degree at the University of Melbourne in Australia.In response to the reports, UII plans to strip IM of the honors he received for his high academic achievements, UII spokeswoman Ratna Permata Sari said.center_img Read also: Sexual abuse on campus: 174 survivors across Indonesia speak upThe university is also providing psychological counseling for the women, said Syarif Nurhidayat of UII’s Law and Ethics Bureau.The legal counselors of the women said the alleged abuse had gone on for years. “The survivors reported that they experienced the sexual abuse between 2016 and 2020,” LBH Yogyakarta deputy director Meila Nurul Fajriah told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.According to reports received by LBH Yogyakarta, IM allegedly committed acts of sexual abuse while studying at the university, and allegedly continued to harass women via social media after graduating and continuing his studies in Australia.last_img read more

ESG roundup: Norges, Climate Bonds Initiative, London Stock Exchange

first_img“Child labour is a particular issue for the apparel sector, with children working at all stages of the global apparel supply chain.”The letter argues that child labour must be assessed in the “broader context” of social and human rights.NBIM has long been active on the issue of child labour, in 2009 highlighting the “overall low” level of compliance with children’s rights, and more recently touching on the matter in a more wide-ranging document on its approach to human rights.In other news, a report has called on companies to explore “innovative” means of funding projects with a positive environmental outcome.The report – ‘Levering Ecosystems’ – backed by Credit Suisse and the Climate Bonds Initiative, examines how companies can generate returns while rehabilitating or conserving the environment.“Government policies and programmes that catalyse business interest are also being developed and implemented,” the report says.“Governments and development agencies have an incentive to promote investment in ecosystem conservation projects as a means to lower remediation costs.“In the public sphere, these investments can be funded either directly or through initiatives that leverage private funding. Such investments may be cheaper than future economic damage from inaction.”The report notes that conservation can be supported through the financing of projects that improve farming standards, or improving resource management through the use of tax credit-enhanced debt.“Innovative thinking can lead to the creation of projects with positive environmental outcomes and enhanced productivity,” the report continues.“To the extent environmental footprints move closer to being recognised as assets and liabilities by companies, debt can be used to fund specific investments in ecosystems that lead to net-positive financial outcomes.”Lastly, the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) has become the first stock exchange to join the Climate Bonds Partnership Programme.Nikhil Rathi, the group’s chief executive, said it was a “committed supporter” of green financing and the transition to a low-carbon economy, as it was a “major industrial trend”.“Developing London as a leading international hub for green finance is vitally important to the city and a key driver behind the launch of our dedicated green bond segments last year,” Rathi said. Sean Kidney, chief executive of the Climate Bonds Initiative, said LSEG was “uniquely positioned” to provide market-based knowledge to the partnership.“We anticipate working cooperatively on joint projects that build and strengthen the position of green bonds in providing global climate finance solutions,” he said. Norway’s sovereign wealth fund has backed an industry venture to improve working conditions across the clothing manufacturing sector, part of Norges Bank Investment Management’s (NBIM) focus on child labour.NBIM, which manages the NOK7.5trn (€783bn) Government Pension Fund Global, said it hoped its support of the Social and Labor Convergence Project would further the development of new industry standards across clothing and footwear manufacturers and “lead to better market practices and a more sustainable industry”.In a letter to the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, responsible for the project, Petter Johnsen, NBIM’s CIO for equities, and William Ambrose, global head of ownership strategies, said they expected the undertaking to achieve “real, sustainable change” by developing new metrics to assess social and labour performance.“Norges Bank Investment Management regards participation in the project as a way to further enhance our long-term strategy and work on children’s rights issues,” the letter says.last_img read more

Why Indiana’s “Quiet” Election Still Matters

first_imgINDIANAPOLIS – Today is Election Day in Indiana, but after low voter turnout in the May primary and the lack of marquee races or significant issues on this year’s ballot, some election observers are not expecting Hoosiers to be flocking to the polls today.Amy Miller, president of the League of Women Voters of Indiana, says voting still matters a great deal despite whatever races may be on the ballot. While 2014 may be remembered as a “quiet election” for Indiana, she says citizens need to get out and exercise their right to vote because “it’s the bedrock of democracy.”“Voting is twice a year, it’s on a regular basis,” says Miller. “I just wish for one or two days a year voting would take a priority, in terms of doing something our forefathers and mothers fought for decades for us to have.”Statewide, voters do have some important races to decide, including secretary of state, state auditor, and state treasurer. All nine of Indiana’s congressional seats are on the ballot, with 15 races for state representative.Miller encourages voters to take some time to review candidates, their qualifications and positions. She adds that one exciting aspect of this election is the number of women on local ballots, and four of the six major party candidates for statewide office are also women.“For younger women, we hope they realize, ‘Wow that’s something I can think about now. Me, as a woman, running for an office – even statewide – is a possibility,’ because that’s an example we’re having now,” says Miller.Polls are open until 6 p.m. today. To cast a ballot Indiana voters will need a valid I.D. card, which Miller says can include an Indiana driver’s license, a photo I.D. card, a military or veteran’s I.D., or a U.S. passport.“To conform it has to have an expiration date,” she says. “We’re glad to see some Indiana college I.D.s are conforming to that usage.”The Indiana DMV has extended hours until 6 p.m. for those who still need to get an I.D. card to vote.Mary Kuhlmanlast_img read more

Liverpool swoop for Spanish full-back Manquillo

first_img “I think it’s one of the biggest in Europe. Any footballer would want to come and play here.” It is understood that the loan is for two years, and Manquillo hopes he can be a Liverpool player for the long-term. He said: “When they tell you Liverpool want to sign you, I think like any player, you are going to be absolutely amazed and you don’t think of anything else than going straight there. “The immediate objective is to do the best I possibly can here. “I’ve come here to try and secure a place for myself in the side and, if possible, stay here for many more years in the future.” Manquillo is the seventh new signing the Reds have made this summer, following on from Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Emre Can, Lazar Markovic, Dejan Lovren and Divock Origi. He was initially a part of the youth set-up at Real Madrid before moving on to Atletico seven years ago. Manquillo made his first-team debut in 2011 in the Copa del Rey, his Primera Division bow the following year and he was involved in Atletico’s title-winning campaign last term, although his progress was disrupted by a neck injury. Liverpool have announced the signing of Spanish full-back Javier Manquillo on a loan deal from Atletico Madrid. Press Association Manquillo is one of two full-backs Brendan Rodgers was hoping to sign as the club are still negotiating with Sevilla for Alberto Moreno but are close to finalising his price. Talks over Moreno have effectively been ongoing since May, the fee for the 21-year-old proving prohibitive, but Liverpool are increasingly confident that will be resolved. Rodgers’s determination to recruit two full-backs raises long-term doubts about some senior defenders in the Liverpool squad, such as Glen Johnson and José Enrique. Johnson, one of the club’s biggest earners, has entered the final year of his contract and there has been an impasse for some time over fresh terms. Liverpool have made it clear from the outset they could not value Johnson’s salary on the same level as his previous deals but would welcome fresh talks. There have also been some issues over the image rights of the England full-back, who was linked with several big money moves abroad at the end of last season. Johnson is most likely to remain at Anfield for this campaign, but there will be some understandable concerns his future will be a distraction as the season progresses as he considers his options for a lucrative Bosman move in the summer of 2015. There are sure to be clubs in Italy, Spain or even the USA who will pay Johnson more than Liverpool. The 20-year-old right-back has been with current Primera Division champions Atletico since 2007 and has represented his country at various youth levels. He told liverpoolfc.com: “I’m very happy to have signed for a club like Liverpool. last_img read more

Warnock: Bruce shone last season

first_img “I’ve got nothing to lose and I want my players to enjoy it and not be frightened of expressing themselves in the right areas,” Warnock said. “Everyone has got strengths – I’m very lucky because you couldn’t ask for more effort and commitment. “As a Palace fan that’s the minimum you require – you want your players to sweat blood and that’s what they’re doing. “The fans get behind the players because they know they’re trying their hardest. “It was a difficult start to the season but since then we’ve worked very hard and we’re getting the rewards.” Warnock allowed 20-year-old Jonny Williams to join Ipswich on a 93-day loan deal this week. Williams, who spent three months with the Tractor Boys at the end of last season, has not started a league game for Palace in the current campaign. “There were four or five clubs after him – I just know Mick (McCarthy) will play him in the hole where I want him to play and he enjoyed it at Ipswich last season as well,” Warnock said. “He knows I’m watching him and he’s playing in the position I think he’s better in. “He’s in my plans and he’s going to be a very important player for Palace long term.” Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock believes Hull’s Steve Bruce deserved to win last season’s manager of the year ahead of his Eagles predecessor Tony Pulis. After winning promotion from the Championship, Bruce steered Hull to a 16th-placed finish in the top flight and led the club to its first ever FA Cup final. He was beaten to the top manager’s prize, however, by Pulis, who rescued Palace from the bottom three and guided the Eagles to 11th. Palace travel to Hull on Saturday and Warnock believes his opposite number should have been given more recognition for his success last term. “I know Tony got manager of the year but I thought Steve Bruce was head and shoulders the best manager around,” Warnock said. “To make a club like Hull very comfortable in the Premier League and to get to the FA Cup final – I thought that was fantastic. “He’s done an incredible job and he’s got fabulous support from his chairman too. “I know the chairman gets criticism but there aren’t many teams in the bottom half who have had as much money put in as Hull. “He’s been fantastic and they’ve bought some very good players.” Warnock arrived at Selhurst Park at the end of August and Palace are unbeaten in the league since he took over. An impressive 3-2 victory at Everton was followed by a 2-0 win at home to Leicester last weekend, which sees the Eagles sitting ninth in the table. Press Associationlast_img read more

Murray beats Djokovic to secure year-end top ranking

first_imgBy Martyn Herman LONDON,(Reuters)-After a season in which he had already reached dizzy heights, Andy Murray saved the best to last by outclassing Novak Djokovic 6-3 6-4 to claim his first ATP World Tour Finals title and secure the year-end top ranking yesterday.Against a player who has so often been his nemesis, Murray produced a relentless display to overpower the Serb he dislodged from the number one spot earlier this month.Murray added the title to the Wimbledon crown and Rio Olympics gold he won during a stunning summer and, despite Djokovic’s Australian Open and French Open titles, there can be little argument the Scot is currently the world’s best player.There was a slight wobble when Djokovic fought back from 4-1 down in the second set as the exertions of Murray’s near four hour semi-final epic against Milos Raonic began to tell.But Murray was relentless and claim,ed victory on his third match point when an error-prone Djokovic fired a forehand wide.“It’s very special playing against Novak in a match like this, we’ve played grand slam finals and at the Olympics before, but I am very happy to win and to be world number one is very special. It is something I never expected,” Murray said.Three-times grand slam champion Murray is the 17th man to end the year at number one since ATP rankings began in 1973 and only the fourth since 2004 — after which Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Djokovic have shared the position between themselves.last_img read more

Elite League leaders’ quest for $1.5M begin today at Tucville ground ……GDF vs Conquerors and Kings vs Buxton

first_imgBy Ras WadadaGUYANA’s top flight football action resumes on the pitch this evening after over two months of inactivity as the top four teams begin the battle for a top prize worth $1.5MGY at Tucville Community ground.The League leaders’ competition is a precursor to the start of the 2nd half of the GFF/Stag Elite League where the number one team clash with the number two for a place in the final while the loser will have a second ‘bite at the cherry’ in the semi-final when they meet the winner of the meeting between the number three and four teams.Today’s action at Tucville kicks off at 16:30hrs with an East Coast derby featuring 3rd placed Devcon Victoria Kings against 4th placed Buxton United. This match-up has always brought out the best in these two teams and today’s encounter will be no different.The Devcon Kings’ unit go into the game with a psychological edge having won the first round encounter by a 2-1 margin, but Buxton’s coach ‘Dan’ McPherson has vowed to avenge the narrow loss today.His opposite, Denzil ‘Hunky Brains’ Thompson who has been in charge for 5 weeks now, while not totally pleased with the preparation of the team, is cautiously optimistic of coming out victorious this afternoon.“The entire club and team is in transition, we are rebuilding and to get to where we want to be will take time. Presently the team morale is high and once we make fewer mistakes will come out on top”, the former national goalkeeper told Chronicle sport.It will be the first official game for the Kings side since securing sponsorship from Devcon Construction and today they will appear in their new outfits and several new players inclusive of brothers Tichard and Pierre Joseph. The back four will be marshalled by the experienced Sherlock Dowden while the veteran Aubrey Gibson will lead the attack.The Buxton side will have a new captain in defender Rondell Assanah who takes over from midfielder Denvor Dennis while young Delon Wright spearheads the attack.The feature game, set for 19:00hrs, is expected to be equally fierce and competitive as the unstoppable Army confront home-side Fruta Conquerors without head Coach Sampson Gilbert, on national U-17 duties overseas. Also out of today’s action are Jeremy Garette, Nicholas McArthur and Reshawn Ritch who are in Martinique with the National U-17s as well.The Army side who brushed aside all the other five teams in the first round of the GFF/Stag Elite League will have a new look defense as three of the starters are away on courses and will not be back until next month. Gone, temporarily, are central defender Aubrey Greene as well as wing-backs Darrel George and Cedric Osborne and midfielder Kennard Simon.According to the GDF’s Technical Director, Bilaal Nantambu, ‘the back four will now read; Kevin Sullivan and Travis Henry in the middle, with Cargill Younge on the right and Shaun Arthur on the left’.The Army’s defense will be tested by a new look Conquerors’ attack that includes Pernel Schultz and the ever-green Anthony ‘Awo’ Abrams, both acquired in the transfer window. The Fruta side will be coached by Dean Headley who will be at the helm for the first time and who will also showcase in today’s line-up two more new acquisitions in midfielder, Kareem Knights and defender Solomon Austin. The home-side will also have a new captain in former national goalkeeper Derek Carter.The Conquerors side must take into this encounter their second half performance against the soldiers when they held them score-less to be the only side to do so in the first round. On that occasion it was the burly Jeffrey Perreira who spearheaded the 3-1 win with a double.The Elite League’s top goal-scorer, Sherwyn Caesar, who was benched for disciplinary reasons in that game, today has the opportunity to prove he is a match winner, yet again. His main support will come from Eusi Phillips and brothers, Elwin and Delroy Fraser.last_img read more
