Refusal to reopen Zongo murder investigation called “astonishing and biased”

The prosecutor’s lightning decision was evidently not the result of serious reflection, but rather a hasty, clumsy and politically-influenced response.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “The prosecutor’s interpretation of the code of criminal procedure is astonishing and biased, to say the least. The information in the report we gave the prosecutor showed that the president’s brother, François Compaoré, and businessman Oumarou Kanazoé lied to the independent commission. It also showed that the Zongo murder was closely linked with murder of François Compaoré’s chauffeur, David Ouédraogo. And it revealed how and why Kanazoé and the then prosecutor, Dramane Yaméogo, tried to silence Zongo prior to his murder.”The organisation added: “Nothing so far shows that any serious attempt was made to shed light on these facts. We therefore insist that they are liable to ‘strengthen the accusations that have already proved too weak’ or to ‘contribute new developments useful in establishing the truth’ – the conditions for reopening an investigation.”The version of the Independent Commission of Enquiry’s report which Reporters Without Borders gave the public prosecutor on 20 October was the original one, the one the commission drafted before it was before it was toned down on the insistence of two of its members who represented the government.The final version completely eliminated certain passages about the contradictions in François Compaoré’s statement to the commission, and Kanazoé’s attempts to silence Zongo prior to his murder. The original report’s conclusions were also much more assertive and specific, identifying “six main suspects,” all members of the presidential guard.According to article 189 of the code of criminal procedure, after investigating judge Wenceslas Ilboudo’s decision on 19 July of this year to dismiss all charges against the leading suspect, former presidential guard chief Marcel Kafando, the case can only be reopened if there are “new accusations” liable to “strengthen the accusations that have already proved too weak” or to “contribute new developments useful in establishing the truth.” June 11, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Also watch out for the Yakovlev’s with their big Russian radial engines making a distinctive sound like no other,” Gerry Humphries told the Limerick Post.Making their debut at this year’s show are Lauren Richardson, the UK’s top female aerobatic pilot; ‘The Wildcats’, a dynamic duo from Norfolk and ex-RAF pilot Richard Goodwin whose performance in a highly modified ‘Muscle’ Pitt’s special is expected to be one of the highlights of the show.“We have a fantastic show planned and we would encourage everyone to come along early and enjoy all the activities on site. It is one of only two big air shows taking place in Ireland this year and the only one in the west of the country. The other show is in Bray, so not as easily accessible for people on this side of the country,” said Flying Boat Museum Director Margaret O’Shaughnessy.More details at www.foynesairshow.ie.by Alan [email protected] WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Linkedin WhatsApp Printcenter_img Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Email Advertisement Previous articleGAA – Another search beginsNext articleSocials – Permanent TSB Opening at Castletroy Limerick Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook NewsSomething special will be in the air over FoynesBy Alan Jacques – July 15, 2016 855 last_img read more

My strong feeling is the only time Supreme Court failed in upholding anti-majoritarianism was when they utilized the power of Article 142 in the Masjid matter and decided in favour of the Hindu-majority. This is where I feel they failed”, said Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court of India, Dinesh Dwivedi, at a webinar conducted by LiveLaw on the topic “The Courts and Constitutional Values”. Commenting on the Ayodhya verdict, he said that there could be two reasons which could have played at the back of the mind of the judges. “One, either the judges were themselves going with the flow of majoritarianism. Or, perhaps they might have felt that unless they give it to the Hindu majority, the dispute will never be solved. That was totally incorrect thinking. SC has to abide by the Constitution and law. I certainly feel SC failed the Constitution by succumbing to majoritarianism”, he added. Apart from Dinesh Dwivedi, the webinar also hosted Former Judge at the Supreme Court of India, Justice Kurian Joseph, and Senior Advocate at the Supreme Court of India, Meenakshi Arora. It was moderated by Advocate Avani Bansal.  “Constitutional morality and values are not twinkling stars which are present in the up above the sky. They are prescribed expressly. The Constitution is an organism; we must believe that each and every part must be made functional. The Constitution pronounces the supremacy of the Constitution”, he said.Dwivedi emphasized that the constitutional values are enumerated in the Preamble to the Constitution itself. “The source of Constitutional values is ingrained in our Constitution. All concepts are enumerated in the Preamble, such as liberty, fraternity, dignity etc. One cannot exist without the other. All rights have equal values.”Social morality is not higher than constitutional morality, he said. Elaborating on the concept of “We The People”, he said that a democratic republic should serve the welfare of the people in accordance with the principles ingrained in the Preamble.Also Read : Constitutional Values Not The Same As Majoritarian Views: Justice Kurian Joseph Dwivedi further underlined the importance of Constitutional values in serving for the welfare of the people and informed the audience about the conjunction of different values stipulated in the Preamble, such as justice, liberty, dignity and fraternity. “The Preamble is the source of all Constitutional values. ‘We, the People’ includes everyone, irrespective of any segregating factor. Then it says that we are a democratic republic. The government has to function for the welfare of the people. The Preamble further elaborates how the general welfare will be achieved; that is how good governance is achieved.” Moreover, Dwivedi highlighted on the idea of equal rights for everyone. “For this purpose, we must understand that all rights are equal; there is no hierarchy of rights. We cannot say that Article 19 is superior to Article 14, or 14 is superior to 25. All the rights have equal values and all together they will help the powers that be to achieve public welfare.” He commented that imbibing constitutional values could hinder a judge from acting as per human prejudices.”Let’s take the case of a devout Hindu judge; he might have some leaning. However, if he is true to his Oath and allegiance to the Constitution, before giving primacy to his devotedness, he will have to see the Constitutional values. A judge is also a human being, born and built in the same society as we are. They cannot exist like an island and certain aberrations are always there. But, Constitutional morality would hinder his movement or digression”[Also Read] Electoral Bonds Scheme Hits At The Very Core Of Constitution, Which Is Our Democracy : Sr Adv Meenakshi Arora During the session, Dwivedi also commented on the developments relating to the sexual harassment allegations against the former CJI, Ranjan Gogoi. He stressed that the lady has been reinstated with full wages, which indicated that there was no wrongdoing on her part.”If it was an attempt to destabilize the judiciary, why was a suo moto contempt not taken? The enquiry report is also not out. I don’t understand how the Constitution was upheld in this issue”, he said.Before the conclusion, he commented on the dangers posed by an absolute government, and stressed on the need to find a right balance between absolute governance and chaos.”In my experience, whenever there is an absolute government, it always runs haywire, and demolishes all institutions around it. We saw it during 74,75,77(referring to Indira Gandhi rule during emergency). We had our ADM Jabalpur days. Now, after a long time we have an absolute government with a vast majority..and we can see press freedom is in danger…institutions are in in danger…take the case of our institution. Are we not finding that the collegium system is not being allowed to function. Why? Because an absolute government is there. For any constitution or governance system to become more mature, it takes time before we realize what the right balance is . We are still wavering between absolute governance and chaos. Lets hope, during our life time time itself, from whatever little is left in it, we can see the right balance”.Watch full video : Next Storylast_img read more
