Dudley, who takes over the top job from Tony Hayward today, said that BP’s board will meet in the coming months to discuss restoring its dividend payout. The group suspended investor payouts after having to set aside $20bn (£12.7bn) to pay for the clean up of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.“The board will get together and talk before the end of the year about restoring a dividend in some form in the first quarter. Its obviously for the board to decide, [but] from what I see happening in the performances of the businesses, I believe we will get there,” said Dudley yesterday. Last year, BP paid out about £7bn in dividends, making it the single biggest dividend payer in the FTSE 100 list of leading companies.His comments will help to restore shareholder confidence in BP after the Gulf spill and repeated gaffes by Haywood tarnished the group’s reputation. Dudley also said that BP was still committed to doing business in the US and said that the company would have to demonstrate that it had “learned its lessons” after the Gulf disaster. The new oil boss also pledged to make BP “a good compelling investment for shareholders”. center_img whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ BP expects to pay dividend by next year Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Shares in drone maker EHang (NASDAQ: EY) plunged yesterday. After ending last week at $124, EHang’s share price fell to just $46 (the US market was closed on Monday). That represents a decline of 63% in just one day.So, why has EHang stock experienced such a dramatic sell-off? Let’s take a look at what’s going on with this popular drone stock.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…EHang stock: short attackThe reason EHang stock plummeted yesterday was that short seller Wolfpack Research published a scathing report on the company. In the report, entitled ‘EHang: A Stock Promotion Destined To Crash and Burn’, Wolfpack said EH is an “elaborate stock promotion, built on largely fabricated revenues based on sham sales contracts.” Ouch!‘Sham’ contactsWolfpack’s first accusation is that EHang’s relationship with its primary customer, Shanghai Kunxiang Intelligent Technology (Kunxiang), “is a sham“.The short seller says it’s gathered “extensive evidence” including behind-the-scenes photographs, recorded phone calls, and videos of on-site visits to EHang’s various facilities, as well as Kunxiang’s offices. It’s come to the conclusion Kunxiang signed sham sales contracts to boost its investment in EH.It goes on to say that Kunxiang has an “exaggerated physical presence” and that its real operations appear to be a “fraction” of what’s claimed. It also claims that out of the three addresses listed on Kunxiang’s website, one is a hotel with no Kunxiang presence, one is a 13th floor address of an 11-story building, and one had only one Kunxiang employee in the office on a weekday afternoon.Weak financialsWolfpack’s second accusation against EHang is that the drone maker “has only collected a fraction of its reported sales since its December 2019 IPO.”The short seller says EHang has reported around $18m in total revenues since its IPO. However, since then, its receivables have increased by about $14m. This means the company has collected less than $4m in cash since going public.Regulatory approvals Finally, Wolfpack claims EHang has misled investors about its ‘flight certifications’ and ‘long-term’ approvals for its ‘passenger-grade’ EH216 drone.The short seller also claims that, according to aviation regulators or experts in aviation regulation in the US, Canada and Europe, EHang has only received permits for recreational test flights of its drones in specified areas, below a specified altitude and at a specified time. In no way are these permits endorsements of EH’s ‘passenger-grade’ claims, nor are they ‘regulatory breakthroughs’ of any kind, it adds.EHang’s responseIt’s worth pointing out that EHang responded to Wolfpack’s accusations in a brief statement yesterday. The drone manufacturer said it believes Wolfpack’s report contains numerous errors, unsubstantiated statements, and misinterpretation of information. It also said it will consider any necessary and appropriate course of action to protect the interest of the company and all of its shareholders.My view on EH stockMy view is that it’s still too early to know who’s right. Wolfpack certainly looks to have done its research on EH. However, short sellers aren’t always on target.Usually, these kinds of short-selling attacks take a while to play out. So, I’ll be looking out for more developments in relation to this short attack in the days and weeks ahead. Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shareslast_img read more

Six Nations player analysis: Billy Vunipola, England

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Something rather extraordinary happened at the end of England‘s post-match press conference at Twickenham on Saturday following a bittersweet 55-35 battering of France that showcased some stunning attacking rugby but ultimately meant the hosts took yet another Six Nations runners-up spot.When all the pressing enquiries had been fielded, Andy Farrell stood up. “Can I just say one more thing?” he asked, before answering his own rhetorical question. “I thought Billy Vunipola was outstanding today.”To single out an individual spoke volumes. This was a genuinely epic instalment of Le Crunch. England had scored seven tries against a side that had shipped two over the preceding 320 minutes.Only twice, against Australia in 2010 thanks to a Drew Mitchell hat-trick and against New Zealand in 2007 with Joe Rokocoko and Sitiveni Sivivatu razing Paris to the ground, have Les Bleus conceded more points.Of course, a number of moving parts were needed to produce such a return, so for Farrell to place Vunipola on a pedestal was a reflection of something seriously special from the Saracen.Remarkably, Billy Vunipola had never completed 80 minutes in a Test before England overturned Wales in Cardiff. He played every second of the tournament thereafter, and was superb.Stuart Lancaster defines a world-class performer as one of the top three on the planet in any given position. Courtney Lawes, Dan Cole and Joe Marler can lay claim to the moniker. Chris Robshaw is very close and Jonathan Joseph might be soon.Now fulfilling his monstrous potential, Vunipola is nearing the marker as well. His display on Saturday reinforced as much.Spoiler supremeA feature of Vunipola’s evening was his immense appetite for work. He hunted involvements all game. The law of averages is fairly simple on this – the more times a prodigious talent can figure, the more likely their team is to do well.Many of Vunipola’s contributions were telling, starting here at the opening scrum. He spies that the ball is out and rushes through on Sebastien Tillous-Borde, forcing the Toulon scrum-half to throw a horrible pass into midfield.Not content with that, Vunipola follows the ball to tackle the receiver, Yoann Huget:A closer look at the first intervention shows how the No 8 bides his time before striking:This puts France far behind the gain-line, giving them slow ball against a well-set defence. Jules Plisson chucked a poor pass that Joseph scooped up and Ben Youngs‘ first try resulted.In the second half, Vunipola and James Haskell combined for an outright steal from a France set-piece. Watch how Vunipola latches onto Haskell latter to haul him forward:Domineering defencePhysical statements are valuable at every level of rugby, not least in the early exchanges of a crucial international. For that reason, this maul turnover lifted England hugely:Having lined up France skipper Thierry Dusautoir, the first step is line-speed. Vunipola sprints up, occupying Dusautoir’s peripheral vision:He then wraps up his man, holding him above ground, first alongside Haskell……and then with Cole after Haskell is cleared out by Nicolas Mas:England were on the front foot here, and ended the passage with possession. That said, Vunipola was also excellent when France had the ascendancy and made a mighty 21 tackles overall.Here, he scrambles into shot to take down Huget after the wing cuts back and bumps off Jack Nowell:Notice how Vunipola gets to his feet and competes for the ball. Only a joint clear-out from Yoann Maestri and Bernard Le Roux prevents a steal.Indeed, Vunipola’s decision-making at the breakdown has been a good throughout the Championship. Although Nigel Owens adjudged England to have infringed here for using their hands in a ruck, watch Vunipola make a nuisance of himself.He holds Huget up before demonstrating discipline to roll away:Making playsEngland Under 18 coach John Fletcher used a certain phrase when Vunipola junior was coming through the ranks. In phase-play patterns, the key distributor had to be either “B or B” –  a back or Billy. England’s No 8 has been excellent throughout the Six Nations and was superb again on Saturday as England agonisingly fell short of a sensational title heist. We analyse Billy Vunipola’s performance against France. It is easy to see why. Even now, Vunipola’s handling skills and awareness are significant assets. In this instance, following a fine ruck turnover from Lawes, one long pass puts the ball into space and sets England away:Looking up to see a staggered, disjointed defensive line, Vunipola’s vision is magnificent:His ensuing support play is just as impressive. He tracks the attack but does not rush all the way to the ruck, instead picking a line off Ben Youngs and carrying hard:We will come onto Vunipola’s running game later. Before that, a glance at a set move England used late on. Interestingly, Vunipola is deployed as a playmaker:Starting in the scrum half position, he drops to receive the ball from fellow Saracen Richard Wigglesworth, who has looped around from the front of the lineout:Shaping either to take it himself or send up Billy Twelvetrees on a hard line, Vunipola then pulls back to George Ford:A reverse angle is best to track the opening as it unfolds thanks largely to Vunipola’s pass:Trucking up and scoring triesWeighing over 120 kilograms and possessing fearful leg drive, Vunipola is a wrecking ball in the collision. However his carrying game is more than brainless marauding. This effort from backfield was exemplary:Plenty of attributes shine through here. Initially, Vunipola’s positioning and anticipation ensure he is in the right place for catcher Ben Youngs to find him:Having received the pass and set off, Vunipola steps off his left foot:This is important. Footwork prior to contact is a means of unbalancing the defenders and therefore weakening their posture prior to tackling.It works magnificently, Vunipola tying up three Frenchmen and presenting the ball perfectly for Ben Youngs to whip away after Dylan Hartley and Lawes have resourced the ruck:Vunipola barged over for England’s penultimate try shortly after the hour mark, the score once displaying massive desire as the 22 year-old carries twice in three phases:Dragging himself off the deck for another shunt at the fringe defence following Ben Youngs’ dart, Vunipola got some help from big brother Mako. This must have felt great:Safe handsThe ability to step up when the intensity escalates is what sets apart truly exceptional players. So when Vunipola offered himself to take this short lineout when Tom Youngs was struggling to hit his men……and when he secured this restart as England pressed for what would have been the Championship-clinching six points…center_img On the charge: Billy Vunipola carries at the France defence …a sense of do-as-I-do leadership shone through.A wonderful Six Nations finale has made the Rugby World Cup even more of a delicious prospect. Vunipola, who was surplus to Lancaster’s requirements for the latter part of last autumn,  is sure to be a major protagonist for England.last_img read more

Family house K is situated on a large residential plot on a moderate eastern-facing slope at the edge of a forest near the base of Sljeme hill. By placing the object next to the street in the north-western corner of the plot, preference was given to a beautiful forest view; the uneven terrain was used as a means of developing the object’s volume.

The atrium was made in order to compensate for a lack of sunlight in the living-room area and enabled two-way lighting of certain rooms. Save this picture!The house is maximally open and rises two floors towards a vast green meadow and forest; towards the street the house is enclosed by a simple ground-floor façade with a hidden garage door. Almost in opposition to the progression of a snail’s home, we enter the K House through a modest and unnoticeable entrance situated at the edge of the southern façade. This is where the spiral movement around the atrium and through the half-levels begins; it ends in a big living room that opens towards the outdoor terrace and the forest. Save this picture!Diverse and colorful elements which find a place in the home in order to satisfy the needs and wants of the inhabitants are developed in a 600 sqm area and in several half-levels, thus making the best possible use of the terrain’s difference in altitude and visually making the house appear smaller. Save this picture!All façades and terraces are paneled with untreated teak boards. The use of wood paneling continues in the interior in response to the spiral progression, as well as to achieve an intimate and comfortable atmosphere. Therefore floors and, intermittently, walls are paneled with teak wood while ceilings and walls are primarily white. Black appears as an additional color accent on the walls, offering a means of directing one’s gaze and movement. Save this picture!An interesting alternative to the straightforward coloring of the home interior was brought to bear in the wellness and swimming pool area. In this dim ambience with a predominantly black lattice ceiling and a wavy golden wall, true atmosphere is created by changeable RGB lighting ranging from purple to blue and giving the area an almost set design-like dimension. Save this picture!A curious addition and final accent to the house were made by the roof terrace. One reaches it via an external spiral staircase that hangs in the atrium between the first level and the roof, thus accentuating the fact that a family house, besides being a home for a family, has also to serve as a place for indulging in companionship, comfort, luxury and gratification.Project gallerySee allShow lessPlanetarium de Montreal / Saucier + PerrotteArticlesErdos Museum / MADArticles Share House K / 3LHDSave this projectSaveHouse K / 3LHDlast_img read more

Cancer fundraising campaign marks first anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death

first_imgCancer fundraising campaign marks first anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death Howard Lake | 8 October 2012 | News The iCancer team are appealing to people to raise the money using Twitter and Facebook. There are using crowdfunding site Indiegogo.The campaign is led by author Alexander Masters who wrote the bestseller ‘Stuart: A Life Backwards’ and Dominic Nutt, who has the same cancer as Steve Jobs.Masters said: “I am deeply frustrated. There is a potential treatment – a virus that destroys this cancer in lab experiments. But it is sitting in a fridge in a research lab in Sweden waiting to be tested in humans. It only needs £2million to run the trial. That’s less than Apple earned in the first three minutes after launching the iPhone5.”Fellow iCancer campaigner Liz Scarff said: ““There is no wristband, no rock concert and no money. Everybody has been touched by cancer. This campaign is about people around the world coming together to try to beat it, in a different way. We want people to donate direct to the research project in Sweden, through twitter.”The campaign has already raised $34,390 with 40 days to go.www.iCancer.org.ukPhoto: noppyfoto on Flickr.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis A team of “guerrilla fundraisers” has launched a global campaign to raise £2 million to fund research into a potential treatment for the cancer that killed Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. The iCancer campaign was launched on the first anniversary of his death, 5 October.The potential therapy, a virus, is being stored in Sweden, but can not be tested because, say the iCancer team, “big business won’t stump up the £2million needed to fund the first stage of trials, because there is no money to be made”.The virus’ creator, Prof Magnus Essand of Uppsala University, says the £2 million will bring the virus to the point where a big pharmaceuticals company can take it over, test it, patent it, bring it to full-scale development and make a profit.

New Zealand

first_img New ZealandAsia – Pacific November 14, 2019 Find out more Melanesia: Facebook algorithms censor article about press freedom in West Papua Help by sharing this information to go further The government has given itself legal authority to inspect computers and monitor private e-mail as part of a fight against crime and terrorism. The government announced in March 2001 a plan to fight cybercrime that it said would also protect people’s privacy better. But the country’s Privacy Commissioner, Bruce Slane, immediately denounced it as allowing police to hack into private computers and look at people’s e-mails armed with a simple search warrant. This was insufficient for something as serious as secret investigations and spying on citizens, he said. Associate minister of justice Paul Swain said police and intelligence agents needed such powers to fight crime and terrorism conducted through the Internet.In July that year, the Green Party strongly denounced the bill and criticised the government’s law and order committee for ignoring people’s concerns about police spying on their private e-mail, especially as the police had not made a case for needing to do so. In the wake of the 11 September attacks, the government announced measures to step up monitoring of private computers and Internet traffic. One, announced in December 2001, required all computer and Internet users to cooperate with police investigations and ISPs to work closely with police, the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) and the Security Intelligence Service (SIS). In March 2002, the government allotted 1.5 million euros for phone-tapping and e-mail monitoring. Another law obliged phone companies and ISPs to install equipment to intercept their customers’ calls.In November 2002, the government moved to boost the powers of the police, the GCSB and the SIS to monitor e-mail. The Telecommunications (Interception Capability) Bill proposed that Internet operators be required to install equipment to monitor and intercept encrypted messages. The bill, drawn up after a report by the Law Reform Commission, provided for fines of up to 25,000 euros for failing to do so. Once again, civil liberties organisations, the Green Party (notably MP Keith Locke) and some Internet operators attacked the serious implications of the measure for privacy of electronic communications. The bill had still not been passed in April 2003. All these government efforts aimed to force Internet operators, especially ISPs, to monitor e-mail messages if need be. Such measures give the police and intelligence services powers that broadly escape scrutiny by the courts or parliament.

New Zealand journalist Nicky Hager, an expert on Echelon, told the Japanese daily Mainichi Shimbun that the US National Security Council, the spy agency that runs Echelon, was used until the late 1980s to conduct US industrial espionage against Japan, watching the role the world’s second biggest economy was playing in the South Pacific. He said the GCSB spied on Japan until 1989 from its base in Wellington and helped analyse data about it from other Echelon network posts. In the early 1990s, the GCSB expanded and set up another base at Waihopai, near Blenheim. An advanced information-gathering system monitored the electronic traffic of Japanese embassies and consulates, including confidential information about trade negotiations, fishing, coal price talks, support for developing countries and immigration matters.

Cité Soleil in mourning for murdered community radio station manager

first_img RSF_en Journalist shot dead amid anti-government protests in Haiti HaïtiAmericas News News Reporters Without Borders is deeply saddened by the news that radio journalist Jean Liphète Nelson was gunned down yesterday in Cité Soleil, the poorest neighbourhood of the capital, Port-au-Prince.The manager of Radio Boukman, a community and educational radio station based in Cité Soleil, Nelson was widely respected for his humanitarian commitment to serving the inhabitants of this politically sensitive district. Aged 38, he was the father of five children.“We had several meetings with Nelson and the staff of Radio Boukman, the station he helped to found in June 2006,” Reporters Without Borders said. “He was totally committed to his community and had told us of his desire to change the perception of Cité Soleil, which is too often seen as just the bastion of criminal gangs.“Through Radio Boukman and the various social programmes he oversaw, he wanted to improve the situation and status of a segment of the population that tends to be ostracized. Radio Boukman also played a crucial role as a relay of information during the January 2010 earthquake. We hope the station’s young staff will be able to consolidate and advance this heritage. We also hope that justice will be quickly rendered to Nelson and his family and that he will receive the tribute he deserves from the Haitian government.”Nelson and four other people were driving in a Radio Boukman vehicle in Bois Neuf, a part of Cité Soleil, when they came under fire from four heavily armed individuals. One of the passengers, Alexandre Marcus, was killed on spot. Nelson’s young brother, Jean Robert Nelson, was hit in the leg. Nelson, who was also hit, was taken to a Médecins Sans Frontières hospital where he died of his injuries soon afterwards.

Tanveer himself has covered violence against these minorities, who are often targeted by religious groups without any reaction from the authorities.RSF calls on the authorities to implement concrete and effective policies to put a stop to the frequent reprisals against journalists who cover sensitive issues.

The government shows little interest in taking action to address this situation and in fact its latest measures seem to display hostility towards media freedom.

The Europe medical device adhesive market is expected to reach US$ 2,937.41 million by 2027 from US$ 1,723.16 million in 2019. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% during 2020-2027. Increasing usage of medical device adhesive and technological advancements in medical device adhesive are driving the market in the region. Additionally, rapid surge in number of minimally invasive procedures and increasing adoption of eco-friendly and biocompatible solutions are likely to fuel the growth of the medical device adhesive market during the forecast period. However, factors such as complications associated with the medical device adhesive are likely to restrain the growth of the market. Medical device adhesive are the adhesives that are manufactured as per the medical grades. They are mainly used for assembling medical devices. They also help to optimize assembly speeds to enable better processing, greater output as well as lowering the associated costs. During recent years, along with the technological developments in medical device industry, the demand for medical device adhesive has also increased significantly. The minimal invasive procedures are the preferred methods that are being adopted over the traditional open surgery methods, such as endoscopy surgeries, endoscopic diagnostic procedures, and robotic-assisted surgeries. The endoscopic surgical process is widely followed for heart, lungs, stomach, and kidney related operations. The post-procedure wounds are sealed with surgical sutures, surgical staplers, sealants, or relevant adhesive tapes. However, due to technological advancements in wound closure methods, medical device adhesives are among the preferred products. For instance, an inguinal hernia is among the most common disorder observed among men and women, with surgical procedure being the only possible treatment. The primary type of operational procedures is open surgery and laparoscopy. According to OECD, there have been about 106,682 laparoscopic repairs recorded for inguinal hernia in Germany in 2017. The wound/cut sealing operations for these procedures usually involve medical sealants; thereby, offering a significant opportunity for market players during the forecast period. The European economy is severely affected due to the exponential growth of COVID-19 cases in the region. Various companies have undergone severe losses in the last quarter of 2019 and have negatively impacted the year 2020. Thus, the European companies are partnering with others to come up with solutions to deal with the pandemic. For instance, Permabond’s production facilities in Milan, are allowed to remain fully operational under the life-sustaining business due to its adhesives for medical devices and ventilators at this time, but also due to the many other essential industries that rely on the continuation of supply of its adhesives for their production and operations. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the regional medical device adhesive market is moderate. The acrylic segment held the largest share of the market in 2019, and is anticipated to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. Growth of this segment is attributed to the as evident use of acrylic solutions in wide range of applications such as dental, assembly of medical devices and equipment. Furthermore, medical grade acrylic is also ideal for use in interior and well as exterior medical applications that include skin tissue adhesives. Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest 1.

However, the High Court reversed the acquittal on an appeal filed by the father of the deceased woman.In the Supreme Court, a bench comprising Justices RF Nariman, K M Joseph and Aniruddha Bose set aside the High Court judgment and restored the acquittal awarded by the trial court.Ingredients of the offence under Section 304B IPCThe judgment authored by Justice K M Joseph explained the ingredients of the offence under Section 304B IPC as follows :”The ingredients of the offence are well-settled. A marriage performed within seven years before the death of the wife. The death must be unnatural. Soon before the death, the deceased wife must have been at the receiving end of cruelty or harassment, on account of demand for dowry. It is described as dowry death. The relatives concerned, including husband, become liable. Section 113B of the Evidence Act comes to the rescue of the prosecutor by providing for a presumption that a person has caused dowry death if, it is shown that soon before her death, she was subjected by such person for cruelty or harassment for or in connection with demand for dowry”(Paragraph 36).Unnatural death not provedThe prosecution case was that the deceased had died of poisoning. The Supreme Court held that this allegation was not proved on account of the following circumstances :The autopsy report did not conclude that death was due to poisoning.No traces of poison were found in the body of the deceased or in the crime scene.The accused were not found in possession of poisonIn this connection, the Court referred to the circumstances necessary to prove death by poisoning, as laid down in Sharad Birdhichand Sarda v. State of Maharashtra and Anant Chintamun Lagu v State of Bombay:(1) there is a clear motive for an accused to administer poison to the deceased,(2)that the deceased died of poison said to have been administered,(3)that the accused had the poison in his possession,(4) that he had an opportunity to administer the poison to the deceasedIn this case, the Court noted that there is no evidence at all that the deceased died of poisoning. Secondly, there is no evidence to show that the appellants had poison in their possession.The police did not recover any poison from the appellants or their house. The FSL report categorically rules out the presence of any poison.The Court acknowledged that there are decisions to the effect that mere failure to recover poison from the accused is not a ground for acquittal (as laid down in Bhupinder Singh v. State of Punjab).But with respect to the facts of the present case, the Court noted :”As far as the facts of the present case is concerned,we have noticed that there is absolutely no evidence relating to poison in relation to the deceased. Were it a case of forcible poisoning,by using a corrosive poison, there would been some marks.There are none.If it were forcible poisoning by using any kind of poison, there would be struggle and resistance from the victim.Even the material (wiper)recovered,according to prosecution,and which allegedly was used to clean vomit of the deceased,did not disclose any poison”The Court also noted that there was an alternate cause of death suggested by the doctors as Tuberculosis. There was evidence of the victim undergoing treatment for Tuberculosis. That angle was not explored by the investigating officer, the Court noticed.Oral evidence regarding demand for dowryThe Supreme Court noticed that the trial court had found the oral testimonies of the father, brother and a relative of the victim regarding the demand for dowry to be contradictory. There were variations in the statements as to when the alleged demand for Rs 10 lakhs was made by the husband.Admittedly, there was no demand for dowry at the time of marriage. The trial court also had held that since the allegation was that the husband sought Rs 10 lakhs for building a house on condition that he will pay it back, it cannot be regarded as dowry.”It is to be noted that PW1 has admitted that there was no demand for dowry before or at the time of marriage. The marriage took place on 10.12.2009. The death was on 23.01.2011. ThoughPW1, PW3, PW4 and PW6 have spoken about harassment on account of dowry, the learned Sessions Judge did not find material reliable. It is to be noted that the version about the demand for Rs.10 lakhs is found wholly unacceptable. The Trial Court has the advantage of watching the demeanor of the witnesses”.In these circumstances, the presumption under Section 113B of the Evidence Act will not apply in the case.”Section 113B of Evidence Act may not apply in this case for the reason that in order that Section 113B applies, there must be evidence that soon before the death of the person, which proves that the person,who is alleged to have caused death,treated the deceased with cruelty or harassed her or in connection with a demand of dowry”(Para 63).The top court concluded that the High Court erred in reversing the acquittal of the trial court. The High Court exceeded the settled position that an acquittal should not be interfered with by the appellate court merely for the reason that an alternate view was possible.Regarding the limitations on interference in appeal, the Court observed :”It is well to remember that while the search of the truth and adjudicatory function of the judiciary are not strange bedfellows, these self-imposed limitations on the pursuit are based on the nature of jurisdiction. Every deviation from such limits could indeed result in grave injustice requiring correction to prevent miscarriage of justice. Excess of jurisdiction can have very serious repercussions, particularly when, what is involved is, personal liberty, which is inevitably at stake in a criminal trial”Case DetailsTitle : Sandeep Kumar and others v State of Uttarakhand and others (SLP(Crl) No.1512-1513 of 2017)Coram : Justices R F Nariman, K M Joseph and Aniruddha BoseAppearances : Siddharth Dave, Senior Advocate for appellants; Krishnam Mishra, Advocate for the State; Sanjay Kumar Dubey, Advocate for the informant.Click here to read/download the judgmentNext Storylast_img read more
