UN blocks deployment of Sri Lankan military officer to Lebanon

Several human rights organisations had written to the United Nations, calling for the deployment of Rathnappuli Wasantha Kumara Hewage as the head of the Sri Lankan peacekeeping force to be halted. “We were asked last week about a Sri Lankan officer who was scheduled to deploy to the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, UNIFIL. I can confirm that the officer’s deployment is on hold pending a review of the matter. A decision regarding deployment of this officer will be made once the review is complete. We are in communication with the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka regarding the officer’s background and Sri Lanka is cooperating fully with our inquiries. The United Nations takes reports of potential human rights violations very seriously. As a matter of policy, we are committed to ensuring that all personnel serving with the UN meet the highest standards of efficiency, competence and integrity, including respect for and commitment to human rights.” The United Nations (UN) has blocked the deployment of a Sri Lankan military officer to Lebanon for peacekeeping operations.UN Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq said that following questions raised, the deployment of Rathnappuli Wasantha Kumara Hewage has been suspended, Innercity Press reported. The Sri Lankan Army stated that Lt. Col. Hewage was due to head the 12th Force Protection Company (FPC) for the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).Human rights groups accused Hewage of being involved in a massive Sri Lankan military offensive that ended in May 2009, and resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of Tamil civilians.

UN envoy to visit Ethiopia and Eritrea as tensions mount

Reports from the UN peacekeeping mission in the area (UNMEE) indicate military movements in both countries advancing towards the Temporary Security Zone (TSZ), while Eritrea has maintained its flight ban against the UN, hampering the world body’s peace operations and prompting a senior UN official there to question whether the mission can remain viable without the cooperation of one of the parties.Mr. Annan, who briefed the 15-member Council in a closed session, said afterwards that all are appealing for calm and are in contact with the leaders concerned.In remarks to the press, he added that he had spoken to Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi today and would personally go to the region if necessary.”We are seeking other measures to try and get our message through, to try and improve the situation on the ground so that we can carry out our mandate,” he said, adding, “Obviously if we had been able right from the beginning to implement the decision of the Border Commission we wouldn’t be here now, but we are caught in a stalemate.”Holding the Council’s monthly rotating presidency for November, Ambassador Andrey Denisov of Russia told journalists that the 15-member body was “deeply concerned” about reports received from UNMEE that Ethiopia and Eritrea are moving military personnel on both sides of the TSZ.Council members were also deeply concerned by “the unacceptable restrictions imposed on UNMEE, which must be lifted, and the continued impasse in the implementation of the decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission.” The Council authorized the Chairman of its Working Group on Peacekeeping Operations, Ambassador Kenzo Oshima of Japan, to visit UNMEE from next Sunday to next Wednesday. He told journalists that his assignment was limited to reviewing the mission’s concerns, speaking to the troop commanders and reporting back to the Council.After Eritrea prohibited UN helicopters from flying through its air space early last month, UNMEE also reported increased restrictions last month on the movements of its ground patrols in certain areas, especially after dusk.In the Eritrean capital, Asmara, the UNMEE chief, Ambassador Legwaila Joseph Legwaila, and Force Commander Maj.-Gen. Rajender Singh described for journalists the military changes on both sides of the TSZ between the two Horn of Africa countries.General Singh said that in Ethiopia the concentration of troops has increased and they have moved about 20 to 30 kilometres closer to the Zone. Tanks which had been located deep inside Ethiopia have advanced about 10 kilometres closer to the TSZ, while other tanks have been seen in areas where they were not previously located.On the Eritrean side, he said, the restrictions on freedom of movement expand daily, as well as incursions into the TSZ by armed personnel who identify themselves as militia but are unwilling to show the required identity cards.Mr. Legwaila stressed that if the peacekeepers are not allowed to do their job, the UN will have to make some hard decisions, such as determining whether consent for the Mission to operate in its assigned area is being withdrawn by one of the parties. “The Council must decide: is it useful to keep pouring $200 million into maintaining a mission which is not allowed to do its work?” he said. Meanwhile, UNMEE said, its peacekeepers continued to provide medical assistance to the local population, along with supplies of bulk water to civilian communities in the TSZ and the Adjacent Areas. Some 253,900 litres of water were supplied to the civilian communities in the past week.But on Tuesday, for the third time since the ban on UNMEE helicopter flights came into effect on 5 October, a request for clearance from the Eritrean Authorities for aerial medical evacuation of a peacekeeper had met with no response, the mission said. read more

Myanmar UN officials pledge humanitarian development assistance for countrys future

“Myanmar is in the midst of a number of complex political, administrative, and economic reforms and peacebuilding processes. There are many challenges, and the country has experienced both progress and setbacks in recent years,” the Administrator of the UN Development Programme (UNDP), Helen Clark, stated in a news release.“UNDP is committed to its work on strengthening governance and to working through its rights-based approaches to support the attainment of higher levels of human development for all in Myanmar.”During a two-day visit to Myanmar this week to emphasize the importance of ensuring the delivery of humanitarian assistance and support for sustainable development, Ms. Clark and the Executive Director of the World Food Programme (WFP), Ertharin Cousin, met with Government officials in the capital of Nay Pyi Taw. The two UN officials also travelled to the city of Sittwe in Rakhine state where communities remain polarized amid ongoing sectarian tensions. The area is the scene of continuing inter-communal conflict and internal population displacements where “humanitarian and development needs are most acute,” according to the news release.In Rakhine, UNDP is providing development assistance and working with communities in 63 villages to improve livelihoods and strengthen social cohesion while also investing in developing the capacity of local governments to improve public administration and people-oriented service delivery. Meanwhile, as the world’s largest humanitarian organization, WFP has been providing life-saving food assistance to over 128,000 internally displaced persons in the state since 2012. “The path to development runs through the achievement of zero hunger,” Ms. Cousin said. “WFP is committed to working with the Government and our partner organizations starting with UNDP to support Myanmar’s transformational goal of reaching middle-income country status by 2030.” Meanwhile, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) today voiced concern about the arrest of more than 100 students and other protestors following their demonstrations in Latpadan, in the southern Bago Region on Tuesday. Although many have since been released, the majority still remain detained in Tharawaddy prison with an estimated 60 of them charged under various laws. In Geneva, OHCHR spokesperson Ravina Shamdasani told reporters that the UN was concerned about reports that the police had used “excessive and disproportionate force” against the protestors.“We urge the Government to unconditionally release all those detained for the exercise of their rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression and to amend the laws that place unnecessary and disproportionate restrictions on people’s rights,” Ms. Shamdasani said. read more

Brock University preparing for winter season

Sitting in a room in the Central Utilities Building, more than a dozen Brock University employees prepared for what they know is coming: snow.For a University the size of a small city, getting its staff and students safely on and off campus during poor winter weather is of utmost importance.In the weeks leading up to winter each year, staff members from Facilities Management, Campus Security, Human Resources, Parking, Communications and various other departments get together to go over the plans and strategies to deal with the snow.Brock’s Ground Services Manager John Dick said the University takes snow removal seriously and provides the resources necessary to get the job done.“It’s our No. 1 priority in the winter to try and make sure the campus is accessible so that students can get to class and staff are able to park and get through the campus safely,” he said. “We’d like people just to come and get to class or work and it not be a problem.”The most visible aspect of dealing with winter weather is the snow removal process. Facilities Management has replaced a wheel loader and snowplow since last winter, which will make clearing the snow on the main Brock campus more efficient.The department has four extra staff members during the winter to deal with the extra duties of clearing snow as quickly as possible before the workday begins.The plow drivers follow a snow removal priority map that focuses on clearing all of the roadways first, the most-used parking lots second and then lesser-used areas third. At the same time others work on clearing sidewalks and building entrances.“Each of the two crews includes one person who will work on the roads, two people in the parking lots and two people on the walkways who are all using machines. Then we have two more people who are doing the hand work clearing the entrances and at times the crews’ shifts overlap,” Dick said.Some new buildings around campus have in-ground systems in front of the main entrances that melt the snow and ice before it has a chance to stick.For roads, walkways and other areas, salt and icemelt products are important tools that are used. To help keep costs down, Brock is part of a purchasing group with other Niagara public entities such as the Region that buys the products in large quantities.While Facilities Management crews handle snow removal on main campus, the department works with contractors to take care of the buildings east of Glenridge Avenue, as well as the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, Rodman Hall and the Hamilton Campus.If anyone has any questions or concerns about the University’s snow removal plans, visit the Facilities Management website, contact x3717 or email facmgmt@brocku.ca read more

Need a Nexus 7 case Amazon has a bunch for under a

first_imgGoogle’s new Nexus 7 released last week to much fanfare — it was sold out across seemingly every major retail chain in the New York area, as well as online outlets such as Staples. With all those new Nexus 7s in the world, there are likely a host of people looking for a new case. After spending around $200 or $300 on the new tablet, you might be looking to save some money on new purchases. Luckily, Amazon has you covered with some extremely cheap cases.Accessorise Frameless dual-view case: For just one penny, your new Nexus 7 can be enveloped in 100% genuine leather, and propped in either landscape or portrait view depending on your preference (and how you’re lying in bed, of course). These cases may be a penny, but the shipping is $4.99, which still makes a dual-orientation, leather case only $5. There are also colors apart from the standard black, such as red and pink.rooCASE folio case with stand and stylus: The case itself is $0.98, and shipping is $4.99. The rooCASE offers both portrait and landscape thanks to the accompanying stand, and it comes with a stylus that doubles as a pen. The front cover is also magnetic, and provides automatic sleep and wake functions. You can grab yours in a variety of colors, such as magenta, navy, purple, black, and red.CaseCrown bold trifold case: This case is $0.10, but is hit with the usual $4.99 shipping. It has a built-in magnetic strip to provide automatic sleep and wake functions, and folds into a little triangle so the tablet can be propped up in landscape orientation. The case comes in the usual suspects of colors, such as purple, black, and blue.Fintie folio hardback leather case: With leather exterior and microfiber interior, this case has the appropriate magnets to provide automatic sleep and wake functions. The case has a hard leather back and a padded leather front, as well as padding on every corner. It can fold into a landscape view, and the case has slots in which the tablet can sturdily rest. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns, from a flat magenta, to zebra patterns, to a world map. This case costs $0.89, with $4.99 shipping.MoKo slim folding case: Featuring a “PU leather” exterior and a microfiber interior, this case folds into a stand with a few landscape viewing angles, and sports a padded front and back cover. It comes in a bunch of colors and patterns, including one that appears to have a teddy bear and candy cane, so you basically can’t go wrong. It costs $0.99, and ships for an ultra rare $4.98, undercutting every other shipping method by a penny.These aren’t the only super cheap Nexus 7 cases available on Amazon, but these are the ones that caught our eye. They suffer from an interesting racket, though, where an exorbitantly high price (such as $40) is listed for the case, but has been “marked down” to under a buck. Even though shipping is around $5 for a majority of these super cheap cases, that’s a satisfying price tag for a leather case with a stand and magnetic smart cover.

Gerrard insists he wont change system despite absentees

first_imgRangers manager Steven Gerrard has revealed he won’t change his formation or the team’s system despite the absence of the club’s two main strikers for Sunday’s semi-final clash.The Gers face Aberdeen in the semi-final of the Scottish League Cup without the services of Alfredo Morelos, due to suspension and Kyle Lafferty, who is Cup-tied.“Who says we’re going to change the system?” Gerrard said, according to Daily Mail.“We play together every day in training. It’s not always Alfredo who is the No 9 or Kyle for that matter.”“Players play in different positions every day in training so we’re not just going to toss a team out that have never played together before. Nothing will be alien to them. The players will be comfortable with whatever we do.”“I’m not going to try something crazy or outside the box that we have never done on a daily basis.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“Against Aberdeen, in the last game we effectively were without a striker when Alfredo was sent off and I think we caused them problems with our movement and speed.”“That’s what gives me confidence we can still get the job done. It will be tough because we have the utmost respect for Aberdeen. But, the first half at Celtic and Livingston apart, more often than not we have faced the challenge and given it a real good go.”“Even though we have two good players missing it’s still 11 versus 11. Aberdeen doesn’t know what we are going to do – and even we don’t know that yet.”“I will pick a team and we will have a plan.”“We are not feeling sorry for ourselves because we haven’t got our two strikers.”last_img read more

Heres how to see spaceships at Coachella 2019

first_img Share your voice 0 Post a comment Tagscenter_img Coachella If you’re on the ground at Coachella this weekend and get tired of posting selfies between acts, you can fill the time tracking flying space objects instead.An AR-equipped stage at the music festival’s Sahara Tent will shoot space-themed content around for those who open the Coachella Camera in the Coachella iOS or Android app and point their phones at video screens during changeovers. The giant images will include interactive planetary objects, space stations and astronauts that appear to be floating above the crowd. Voila. Your reality, already augmented from hanging out in the California desert with tens of thousands of strangers, gets even more so. space2 Coachella Childish Gambino headlined the festival’s opening night Friday with a 90-minute performance, urging attendees to put their phones down and take the moment in.

PM for use of jute bags instead of plastics

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh HasinaPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday laid emphasis on increasing the use of jute-made products giving up plastic-made ones as it has become a great threat to the environment globally.“Plastic has become a huge problem for the world; it causes pollution. We saw it blocks canals and the drainage system. Wherever there is plastic, you’ll find problem there,” she said.The prime minister was speaking at the function of World Environment Day, tree fair and campaign for tree plantation at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC).She said when Awami League came to power in 1996, it took steps to ban the use of plastic products and find out its alternative.Stressing the importance of increasing the use of jute-made products, Sheikh Hasina said the government has taken numerous programmes to bring back the golden days of jute and its products.She mentioned that scientists have already invented a jute-made biodegradable polybag called ‘Sonali Bag’.Bangladesh Jute Mills Corporations (BJMC), a wing of jute and textiles ministry, is producing Sonali Bag as a substitute for the polythene bag.“We can use it as the substitute of polybags,” she said adding that jute-made small bags can be used increasingly.Fashionable bags are now produced from jute, Hasina said pointing at the handbag she was carrying. “This was also made of jute.”The premier went on saying, “New jute-made goods have ushered in huge potentials for Bangladesh as the pollution issue has come up globally.”Hasina said Bangladesh is a jute-producing country and its diversified use can be beneficial for the country both environmentally and economically. “We can export, we can save money; jute is an environment-friendly item.”She also urged all to go for reusing plastic products or refuse it totally as protection of the environment is very important.Briefly describing various programmes of her government for protecting the environment, the prime minister said the government has taken plans for housing, industry and economic zones so that the environment could be kept intact. “We’ve taken the steps so that we could protect the environment properly.”She said the monitoring and enforcement of the Department of Environment has been strengthened.To make the department stronger, she said the government has already created 468 new posts in addition to the existing 267 posts.Environment, forest and climate change minister Anisul Islam Mahmud, deputy minister Abdullah Al Islam Jakob, chairman of the parliamentary standing committee on environment, forest and climate change ministry Hasan Mahmud and secretary Abdullah Al Mohsin Chowdhury, among others, spoke on the occasion.The theme of this year’s World Environment Day is “Beat the Plastic Pollution” with the slogan- If you can’t reuse it, refuse it.This year’s theme for the National Tree Plantation Campaign and Tree Fair is “Live in Green, Protect the Green and Decorate the City-life-Environment”.The prime minister also inaugurated the 3 million saplings plantation programme to pay tributes to the 3 million people who embraced martyrdom during the country’s liberation war on the occasion of ‘National Tree Plantation Campaign and Tree Fair’ by planting a chhatim sapling on the BCCI compound.Earlier, the premier handed over Bangabandhu Award for Wildlife Conservation, National Environment Award and Prime Minister’s National Award for tree plantation at the event.She also inaugurated the National Environment Fair and National Tree Fair 2018 at Sher-e-Bangla Nagar in the capital and visited different stalls at the fair.last_img read more

Geek Pick TCL 55S425 Is An Affordable 4K TV

first_imgStay on target How affordable? The TCL 55S425 is a big, 55-inch 4K TV that only costs $380. That’s a pretty good deal considering 4K is still pretty cutting-edge. Video game consoles are only just barely outputting 4K now.So what’s the catch? Well as a budget TV the TCL 55S425 is going to have some compromises on quality. Most notably the image suffers. The panel lights are dim and the color range, while accurate, is narrow, hindering vibrant contrast. Audiophiles might also bemoan the lack of Dolby Digital sound support.But these are issues you aren’t as likely to notice if you don’t review tech for a living. At the end of the day the TCL 55S425 is a totally serviceable 4K TV you don’t have to go into debt to buy. Plus, it’s a smart TV, too. The embedded Roku TV player gives you quick access to all sorts of streaming services to enjoy movies, TV shows, and a bunch of other apps.For more on the TCL 55S425 check out the extensive review on our sister site PCMag.com.

It uses direct digital detector technology to produce high quality images for rapid verification of tissue specimens such as breast biopsy samples. Trident is a state-of-the-art, mobile system designed to reduce procedure steps, streamline workflow and give physicians increased confidence in the accuracy of their procedures.Gary M. Levine, M.D., director of breast imaging at Hoag Breast Care, Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian, Newport Beach, Calif., was one of the radiologists who evaluated the system. “Hologic’s Trident system addresses many market needs by providing exceptionally high image quality, rapid verification of tissue samples and extreme ease of use,” Levine said. “Trident is a valuable tool in helping to improve the delivery of breast care for women.”Frequently, breast specimen imaging is performed directly on the facility’s mammography system. This takes away from the time the system could be used for normal screening and diagnostic exams. In addition, if the clinician leaves the procedure to confirm the specimen image, the patient often needs to stay under anesthesia and/or in compression during this time.Hologic’s system is designed for use in the operating room where breast tissue is surgically excised, and in biopsy suites where minimally invasive, stereotactic or ultrasound breast biopsies are performed.The new system is self-contained and eliminates the need for samples to be taken to the radiology department for X-ray imaging. Performing the verification in the same room as or within close proximity from the procedure improves workflow, thus reducing procedure time for the patient. The selenium-based detector, with its 12 x 14 cm active imaging area, provides high quality imaging for the majority of breast specimens. The system’s user-friendly interface facilitates seamless workflow without the need for extensive training or experience. For even greater efficiency, the system offers one-button Automatic Exposure Control and one button export to picture archiving and communication system (PACS) or to the Hologic SecurView diagnostic workstation.For more information: www.hologic.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more News | Radiation Dose Management | July 18, 2019 Low Doses of Radiation Promote Cancer-capable Cells Low doses of radiation equivalent to three computed tomography (CT) scans, which are considered safe, give cancer-… read more Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more Video Player is loading.Sudhen Desai explains how deep learning might assist pediatric imagingPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 8:21Loaded: 1.95%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -8:21 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Four law firms disciplined for failing to comply with Panama Papers instructions

first_imgFour law firms included in the so-called Panama Papers have been referred to the bar association’s disciplinary council for failing to comply with instructions, chairman Doros Ioannides told MPs on Wednesday.Speaking before the House ethics committee, Ioannides said out of the 72 firms acting as intermediaries which were named in the documents, four had been referred to the disciplinary council after failing to comply with the association’s instructions.The council will convene in March.The head of the anti-laundering unit Mokas said they had secured a court order to freeze bank accounts belonging to a foreign national worth €15 million. The individual in question appeared in a number of companies relating to the documents.Mokas head Eva Papapakyriakou added, however, that no suspicious transactions have been found so far.The Panama Papers is shorthand for the widely publicised report of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, originally published on April 3, 2016.A massive leak of 11.5 million documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca provided the investigative journalists with a trove of information about 200,000 entities incorporated in offshore havens, companies whose real owners were difficult or impossible to trace.Mossack Fonseca (Cyprus) Ltd, a representative office of the Panamanian firm, was registered in Cyprus in 2003. The company asked to be deleted from the registry of companies registered in Cyprus in March 2016“Compared with October, a lot of work has been done but I am afraid that at the end of the day the results are not the ones we expected to have at the beginning,” committee chairman Zaharias Zahariou said. “It emerged today that the only gain we will have comes from the actions of the tax department in relation with people’s tax files.”Deputy tax commissioner Sotiris Markides told the committee that his department had identified 2,400 individuals and companies. It is asking 700 for information on revenues and property they had abroad from 2005 onwards and to submit tax returns.The majority, he said, appear as directors and shareholders of companies included in the documents.

your constituency To begin with I have a helpline It is exclusively to hear issues from senior citizen students and women We are taking the complaints in five languages so that we reach out to maximum persons What is your vision I want to restore the trust of people in politics and politicians I believe the first step is to ensure maximum availability to public in the constituency In the past five years I have met people without appointments and at any given time Accessibility is the key I have never said no to any request for help Unlike BJP candidate who does not even entertain requests for admission I give sanction letters to anybody I have even given the authority to my assistant to give letters on my behalf I have made 1274 toilets and 280 borewells in buildings According to me a

replacing the central excise duty and service tax with the promise of bringing under the tax net all transactions including real estate and helping check tax evasion File Photo/Agencies Top News The passage of the Constitution (122 amendment) Bill which provides for the introduction of a Goods and Services Tax or GST marks just the first step in the long road towards a seamless national common market and a tax structure without distortions and one that boosts efficiency as well as growth The bill will be an enabling provision to allow the Central and state governments to build a new tax regime which will subsume the central sales tax (CST) State Value Added Tax (VAT) entry tax besides replacing the central excise duty and service tax with the promise of bringing under the tax net all transactions including real estate and helping check tax evasion It is therefore welcome that the government has been able to negotiate with the principal Opposition party to resolve issues that were threatening to derail this reform That said some near term challenges need to be addressed The foremost is the working out of an appropriate standard rate which will be applicable to both the Central and state governments and which is non-inflationary and acceptable to all The Congress wants the rate to be capped at 18 per cent though states want the NDA government to peg it at over 20 per cent citing revenue concerns The second challenge relates to the compensation mechanism for states in the first phase of the unveiling of this tax The Modi government has promised to compensate states for potential revenue losses for five years but if this is not tapered off as was the case during implementation of VAT it could lead to perverse incentives for states or pose the risk of a moral hazard This compensation will then have to come from perhaps a levying of either corporate or income tax — which would be unfortunate — when a road map to lower such taxes has already been unveiled Then there is the information technology backbone or infrastructure which will support the GST Putting in place a structure which will allow for capturing value addition while providing for setting off tax credits for millions of transactions is bound to test policymakers the revenue department and states Purists argue that going ahead with a flawed design for a transformative reform measure could be detrimental But waiting for the perfect law would mean sacrificing gains built over a long tortuous course If the European Union — an amalgamation of disparate nations — could build a common market with a single currency there is no reason why India should not succeed That’s why at the next stage it is important to have a simple design a relatively low single standard rate and few exemptions For

require proper legal review Howeverto focus solely on their legal nicetiesas several politicians and critics of the court have doneignoring the popular impatience with the nexus between crime and politicswould be a case of missing the wood for the trees In Jan Chowkidara two-judge bench of the SC held that since any person confined in prison or in lawful custody of the police is not entitled to vote under Section 62 of The Representation of the People Act (RPA)1951the incarcerated person shall also not be entitled to contest elections to Parliament or state legislatures In lawthis decision is clearly erroneous To contest electionsone only needs to be an elector a person who is entitled to registration on the electoral roll Registration on the electoral roll is a distinct issue from being entitled to actually vote on election daywhich is the only entitlement taken away for prisoners While the SCs eagerness to bar those in prison from contesting elections is understandablesuch a bar cannot be achieved through an indefensible legal interpretation Furthersuch an interpretation provides a perverse incentive for temporarily incarcerating and consequently disqualifying honest candidates On the contraryin Lily Thomasthe same bench of the SC correctly held that Section 8(4) of the RPAwhich allows MPs and MLAs who are convicted while serving as members to continue in office till an appeal against such conviction is disposed ofis unconstitutional Two justifications were offered firstParliament does not have the competence to provide different grounds

justificationit ought to have referred the matter to a larger bench This is because in K Prabhakaran vs P Jayarajan (2005)a Constitution bench of the SC upheld the distinction between
