The manufacturer requested that the Department of Revenue and the City of Philadelphia should be instructed to cease seizing or threatening to seize POM equipment and arresting or prosecuting persons in connection with operation of POM games.In a counterclaim, the Department of Revenue requested that POM be ordered to remove its machines from all Pennsylvania establishments and cease further sale and distribution of its machines within Pennsylvania unless and until POM obtains the proper licenses from the Gaming Control Board.POM argued that their machines were a “game of skill” and therefore not a slot machine under Pennsylvania law, and that they were not under the remit of the Gaming Act.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Organisation News Reporters Without Borders is dismayed by today’s fatal shooting of Anja Niedringhaus, a German photographer with the Associated Press, while she was covering the delivery of ballots to polling stations in Tanai, a district in the eastern province of Khost near the border with Pakistan.Kathy Gannon, a Canadian journalist who is the AP’s special regional correspondent for Pakistan and Afghanistan, was wounded in the shooting. The local authorities arrested the man who shot them, who was a uniformed police officer.“We offer our heartfelt condolences to Anja Niedringhaus’s family and friends,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “The shooting has highlighted the permanent and ubiquitous danger for reporters in some regions of Afghanistan. “It is all the more shocking for apparently being the work of a policeman who should have been protecting Afghan and foreign journalists. We call on the authorities to do everything possible to guarantee the safety of journalists, whose role is crucial at the height of the electoral process.”Ismaïl added: “By imposing a climate of terror, armed groups such as the Taliban, the Haqqani network and Al-Qaeda are trying to get as many observers as possible to flee and to force the closure of large numbers of polling stations – all this in order to undermine the presidential election’s legitimacy.”Aged 48 and an experienced press photographer, Niedringhaus was part of a group of journalists who were accompanying members of the Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan (IEC) as they delivered ballot material to polling stations.Mobarez Khodran, the Khost governor’s spokesman, said the journalists had just arrived at a police station and were still in their car when, at around 10:45 a.m., a police officer, “Naghibullah”, opened fire on them, killing Niedringhaus and injuring Gannon.According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, Gannon is in a stable condition in a nearby hospital. The police officer who had shot the journalists was surrounded by other police officers and arrested. The district of Tanai borders the Pakistani district of North Waziristan, a Haqqani network and Al-Qaeda stronghold.Niedringhaus began her career as a photographer by working for a local German newspaper. After covering the fall of the Berlin Wall for the European Pressphoto Agency, she specialized in war reporting and in 2002 joined the Associated Press, covering conflicts in Israel, Palestine, Pakistan, Iraq and Afghanistan.Reporters Without Borders reiterates the utmost importance of protecting the journalists who are in Afghanistan to cover tomorrow’s presidential election. Nils Horner, a journalist with Swedish and British dual nationality, was gunned down in a well-protected district in central Kabul on 11 March, shortly after the Taliban announced their intention to disrupt the election.On 2 April, Reporters Without Borders issued a call for the reinforcement of measures to protect journalists and prevent risks.Reporters Without Borders recently issued a report about media freedom in Afghanistan. Entitled “Presidential election in Afghanistan: local media on the front line”, it condemned the prevailing impunity for violence against the media and made recommendations to the authorities for combatting it. Afghanistan is ranked 128th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Suresh Kumar Kait allowing the State Government’s appeal had set aside the bail order dated 20th June 2020, passed by Sh.Vinod Yadav, learned ASJ, Karkardooma Courts, Delhi in pursuance to FIR No.134/2020 dated 05.03.2020 registered at Police Station Dayal Pur, Delhi for the offences punishable u/s 147/148/149/307/395/436/ 455/201/114/505/153-A/120-B of IPC. The respondent/accused is an educationist, responsible for running and managing various schools like the Rajdhani Public School and Victoria Public School. He is accused of leading riots in the Northeastern parts of Delhi in February this year. The Ld. Counsel for the respondent/accused, Sr. Adv. Ramesh Gupta, had argued that, Faisal had no criminal antecedents and the same had been admitted by the Investigating Officer and duly recorded in the Bail order dated 20th June 2020. It was also brought out before the court that he had never made any attempt of absconding and was not at flight risk and had also cooperated with the investigating agencies. It was also highlighted that the Ld. Sessions Court while granting the Bail had looked into the CDR Records of the Mobile Phone of the Respondent which showed that on the date of the alleged incident on 24 the February 2020, he had called the Police 6 times for help and made complaint about the damage caused to his School. Even the Chargesheet had recorded that Faisal was not present at the scene of the riots. It was argued that, the respondent was arrested in March and the Chargesheet was filed in June and that the trial was likely to take time for which the Respondent ought to be released on bail. A distinction was also sought to be established between rejection of bail and cancellation of bail already granted placing reliance on the Supreme Court judgement in Dolat Ram & Ors. vs. State of Haryana (1995 SCC (1) 349) among others. A bail once granted cannot be cancelled without “cogent” and “overwhelming” reasons and the present petition had failed to bring out any such reasons. Prosecution’s own evidence (photograph) relied upon by them also showed Faisal in the vicinity of the school around 2 PM when they claim that the riots commenced after 3PM. The Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi, appearing for the State argued that, Faisal was the kingpin and mastermind of the alleged incident and had deliberately allowed rioters to use his school to wreak havoc in surrounding areas, particularly the neighbouring DRP School. He asserted that, bail of the Respondent/ accused in this case will adversely affect the investigation of other related cases too. The brazenness and impunity with which the accused had committed these offences disentitled him from seeking bail and his character indicates the likelihood of him evading the process of law and threatening the witnesses. The State also maintained that, Faisal had made available ropes, bottles, etc., and the catapult to be used by rioters. The lower court had erred in construing the evidentiary statements of the Prosecution witnesses Roop Singh, Manoj and Geeta. On the basis of the arguments the High Court finding merits in the submission of the State had held that the lower court had allowed Faisal bail at a premature stage ignoring relevant material. It was observed that, “…keeping in view the fact that respondent/accused is wealthy and he has reputation and roots in the society, therefore, since investigation in the present FIR is pending and the prosecution is likely to file supplementary chargesheet, therefore, the respondent/ accused may influence the witnesses and hamper the investigation and trial.” The High Court from the material produced on record concluded that, The CCTV footage produced showed Faisal behind Rajdhani School. The Additional Sessions Judge had found to the contrary. There were flowcharts to show that his links to Pinjra Tod, PFI, and Muslim Clerics, but investigations were ongoing. The lower court had wrongly relied on the statements of the prosecution witnesses to arrive at the finding of non-involvement of the accused in the riots. The court also took note of the lower court’s order being kept on hold by a Supreme Court order, and recorded that Faisal continued in prison even after the bail initially allowed him. It may also be noted that the High Court while cancelling the order of bail also cautioned that “The Trial Court shall not get influenced during trial by the observations made by this Court while passing this order.” Sr. Adv. Ramesh Gupta represented the Accused/Respondent. Additional Solicitor General Aman Lekhi appeared for the State.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Story
