On Monday, two Good Shepherd Collective members headed to #Ofer #military court & #prison to stand in #solidarity with Sami Huraini of Youth Of Sumud / شباب صمود and his family on the day of his trial.
Although we were unable to join Sami in the #courtroom, we sat with his family and dozens of other #Palestinians awaiting their family members, imprisoned and/or awaiting #prosecution in the #military #court system.
In Sami’s case, his trial was postponed, granting momentary relief despite a continuation of the bail conditions which prevent him from participating in #protests—essentially, keeping him from exercising his most basic right to #free speech and #resistance to #oppression.

Last month, the @HouseDemocrats impeached Donald John #Trump. When they did so, they adopted a resolution proclaiming that their impeachment was done in the name of the #HouseofRepresentatives and in the name of, and for, the United States of America.
That formula, explaining that the House impeached someone and did so in the name of the House and in the name of the United States, is common. Yet the assertion is troubling.

Half or more of the country disapproves of the House’s impeachment, and of the Senate’s trial.
But politicians will still claim they are doing it for us.

They aren’t.

And it is particularly urgent that we repudiate the idea that the House’s 2021 #impeachment of #DonaldTrump was in our name.

#Iran #Teheran #Court #Internet

Iran's telecommunications minister and the youngest member of the cabinet of President Hassan Rouhani, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, was summoned on Wednesday by the country's attorney general and released on bail.
In a statement, Jamal Hadian, a spokesman for the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology, said the minister appeared before a prosecutor at the Culture and Media Court in Tehran and was released after being questioned.
Jahromi faces an indictment, according to sources, over the failure of the ministry to comply with an order issued by the Supreme Council of Cyberspace of Iran to filter Instagram, block virtual private networks (VPNs) and facilitate locally established messengers.

#Germany #Tunesia #Münster #NRW #Court

The alleged Islamist Sami A. failed with his asylum procedure before the North Rhine-Westphalian Higher Administrative Court in Münster.
The court did not allow the Tunisian to appeal against a judgment of the administrative court in Gelsenkirchen. The administrative court lifted his ban on deportation for A. in January 2019 because there was no longer any risk of torture for him in his home country.
The decision of the Higher Administrative Court is final. A., who was classified by the German authorities as an Islamist threat and who allegedly was the bodyguard of the former Al Qaeda boss Osama bin Laden, was illegally deported to Tunisia in the summer of 2018.

#AmericaIsOnTheBallot "Every democracy or many democracies in their histories have taken a flier on a populist fast-talking con man. I come from Minnesota, we have a governor we took a flier on like that, it happens in history. You can do it once but when you do it twice, then 1/

We need to talk about just how corrupt we've allowed #democracy in #America to become, to the point it isn't democracy in many respects. And we need to stop #partisan squabbling and get to fixing it before we end up a one-party state, like #China. Thread👇
In 2019, writing the decision for Common Cause v. Rucho, Chief Justice Roberts closed off the federal courts as an avenue for addressing partisan #gerrymandering, instead telling citizens to propose state constitutional amendments.
In many states, with statehouses #gerrymandered beyond reach of the people, or otherwise beholden to special interests, these citizen-amendments are the only avenue left for addressing #democracy reform and other policy concerns.

1] Going through a presser by #Mwonzora yesterday, can't help but laugh at how he has become a #pathological liar.

Infact, its clear that besides getting security, legal & material support from #ZanuPF, they are equally giving him free lessons on #propaganda.

It's a shame Image
2] #Mwonzora unashamedly claims there was a "peaceful & smooth handover & take over" .

He wants you to believe that the then occupants, i.e. #MDC-A officials "peaceful" handed over the HQ to MDC-T.

& then probably regained their consciousness & returned to reclaim it at night? Image
3] #Mwonzora falsely claims that they had nothing to do with the presence of security forces at MRT House.

Bizzarely, #Komichi claims the exact opposite, arguing that they invited them against marauding MDC-A who had petrol bombs.

He clearly says they actually invited them. Image

1] By each passing day, i wonder what goes through #Mwonzora's mind as he continues to lose his #political battles with #Chamisa.

How does he think of himself as SG of a party who's supposed #MPs (majority), continue to defy his #authority?

Surely, one has to #pause & #reflect.
2] MDC supporters have seen 3 splits now.

They know that they have little to do with #constitutionalism.

When Biti left, NC, commenting on the #congress that followed mockingly said "we haven't invited Tendai & his oranges"

Fast forward to 2019, he's his closest lieutenant.
3] When Ncube left, citing certain issues, those who have left now mocked him.

The same happened when Biti & EM & even MaKhupe left.

The #constitutionalists remained.

The MDC supporters are not stupid.
They are rational.
They see through the patronizing Latin from the Lawyers.

This time last week, I was in the middle of a 3-day High Court Trial that was being conducted on Skype for Business.

Having experienced one of the first fully virtual Trials, I thought I would share some tips for those who are yet to hold one.

Here are my 30 tips...

Tip 1

Test your set up prior to the Hearing by holding conferences using the same software that will be used during the Hearing – Skype for Business may be used for the Hearing.
Tip 2

Schedule team/client conferences that will happen before, during and after the Hearing ahead of time. Agree on who will be responsible for setting up the calls, on what platform and during which times.

In a bizarre twist, newly-dissolved #Thailand #opposition party #FutureForward @FWPthailand has accused #PM #Prayut of working with ex-#Malaysia #PM #Najib to suppress the truth/information on allegations of #corruption regarding #1MDB. Mr Najib is currently facing trial for that
Now-dissolved #Thailand #opposition #FutureForward @FWPthailand also accused #Thai #PM #Prayut & his government of allowing #fugitive #Malaysian financier #JhoLow, linked to #1MDB scandal to travel in & out of Thailand freely while he was wanted by #interpol between 2016 & 2018 ImageImageImageImage
This comes 1 day before #Thailand #parliament is set to start #censure debate targeting 6 ministers including #PM #Prayut. But @FWPthailand executives including @Pannika_FWP who spoke at event accusing #Thai PM of suppressing info to apparently help #Malaysia's #Najib cannot join ImageImageImageImage

@FWPthailand #อนาคตใหม่ #FutureForward #opposition leader @Thanathorn_FWP #ธนาธร says he'll continue working for all despite not being able to be #MP in #Thai #Parliament after #ศาลรัฐธรรมนูญ court ruling. Says he'll be in downtown #Bangkok campaigning to call to end conscription
#Thailand #opposition #FutureForward #อนาคตใหม่ leader #Thanathorn #ธนาธร maintains his innocence in the media shareholding case saying he disagrees with #ศาลรัฐธรรมนูญ court ruling as he feels it wasn't based on real evidence/facts of case. Will let people decide if fair/unfair ImageImage
Just hours after the #Thailand #ConstitutionalCourt #ศาลรัฐธรรมนูญ ruling to strip #Opposition #อนาคตใหม่ #FutureForward @FWPthailand leader #Thanathorn #ธนาธร of his #MP status, he wasted no time to reach out to citizens to help push 1 of party's main call to end conscription ImageImageImageImage

No surprises here where #Thailand court has disqualified key #opposition leader @FWPthailand @Thanathorn_FWP as #MP as they found him guilty of holding shares in a media company after registering his candidacy for the #Thai election early this year
Back in May this year when #Thailand #parliament convened for the 1st time after March elections, after 5 years of #military rule, @FWPthailand leader @Thanathorn_FWP was already barred from sitting in as #MP by #constitutional #court then over this same media shareholding case

Please can as many people as possible show your support to #AngelaRay and #JusticeForChildX. Last week the numbers were massive so hopefully it will be the same again this week #JusticeForAll #TuslaExposed
There are 2 Entrances into The Four Courts, you can use either & then make your way to the Main Hall where everyone normally meets before going into the Court.

@Comey refers to the surveillance of Trump campaign as "court ORDERED."

Yeah. Some judges just up and ORDERED the FBI to conduct a spying operation.

@Comey's is the greasy slimey misdirection of the guilty. The FISA Court AUTHORIZED or APPROVED the surveillance; if an application or request from the #ObamaDOJ or the #ObamaFBI had not instigated it, there would have been no FISA surveillance.
@Comey can't wash the stain of his grotesquely anti-American conduct off his hands, and he surely cannot succeed in attempting to deflect responsibility to the #FISA #Court.
