But better known to us as Singer The Vulture.

China launches global 'fox hunt' for corrupt officials - Telegraph

China launches global 'fox hunt' for corrupt officials - Telegraph | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

Beijing vows to drive corrupt officials from their overseas refuges in a bid to save the Chinese Communist Party from extinction..

 

China's Communist Party has launched an international "fox hunt" for corrupt officials, vowing to track fugitives to the four corners of the earth and bring them to justice.

Chinese officials have been lining their pockets and skipping the country since the 1980s, the Xinhua news agency reported this week, but the problem has now reached staggering proportions.

More than 750 errant civil servants were repatriated last year after fleeing China with more than £960m, according to figures released this week.

Reports have emerged this year of government officials and fraudsters escaping to countries including Uganda, Thailand, Malaysia and the United States with huge sums of public money.

"We will hunt them down and bring them to justice wherever they try to escape and hide," Liu Dong, the deputy director of Beijing's Economic Crime Investigation Department, vowed earlier this week at the launch of a campaign dubbed "Operation Fox Hunt 2014".

U.S. attorney warns N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo not to interfere with anti-corruption probes

U.S. attorney warns N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo not to interfere with anti-corruption probes | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it
T

The U.S. Attorney for Manhattan has threatened to investigate New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration for possible obstruction of justice and witness tampering, after the governor canceled his own anti-corruption commission, The New York Times said.

The prosecutor, Preet Bharara, issued his warning in a “sharply worded letter,” the newspaper reported. His salvo arrived after several members of the “Moreland Commission” overtly defended the Democratic governor’s handling of the panel, which was supposed to clean up politics in Albany but was shut down in March.

“At least some of those statements were prompted by calls from the governor or his emissaries, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation who were unwilling to be named for fear of reprisal,” The Times said.

Mr. Cuomo is under a microscope after The Times reported the governor’s office shut down the panel’s work when it focused on groups with ties to the governor himself.

Relevance of Hannah Arendt’s “A Report On The Banality Of Evil” To Gaza » By Hammad Said CounterPunch

Relevance of Hannah Arendt’s “A Report On The Banality Of Evil” To Gaza » By Hammad Said CounterPunch | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

“We want the nations of the world to know…….and they should be ashamed”   Ben Gurion explaining rationale for Eichmann’s trial [i]

“The triumph of the S.S demands that the tortured victim allow himself to be led to the noose without protesting, that he renounce and abandon himself to the point of ceasing to affirm his identity. They know that the system which succeeds in destroying its victim before he mounts the scaffold…..is incomparably the better for keeping the whole people in slavery”[ii]  

"Hannah Arendt (henceforth HA), philosopher, writer, academic of Jewish heritage, who studied under such luminaries as Karl Jaspers and Martin Heidegger in pre-war Germany, went to Jerusalem in 1961 to cover the trial of Eichmann, one of the actors in the Final Solution, for the New Yorker magazine. Her account of the trial regularly published in the magazine at the time, later became a basis for the book, “Eichmann In Jerusalem: A report on the banality of evil”.

It is obvious from reading the book that HA’s account of the trial in the book transcended the culpability of the single individual, and in fact implicated the whole of western society in the crimes committed."

New Report Mobilizing Against Injustice | Global Solution Networks

New Report Mobilizing Against Injustice | Global Solution Networks | Ethics? Rules? Cheating? | Scoop.it

"Global institutions in the twentieth century have addressed global problems and initiated multilateral projects and activities. But their traditional approaches and politics often impede viable solutions for some of the world’s most urgent and intractable challenges. Gender violence is one. The role of women in cultures and families varies—and “abuse” and the issue of equality is a distinct and subjective matter—but global consensus exists against, and this report focuses on, gratuitous violence, rape, exploitation, negligence and enslavement of females. Such maltreatment has been criminalized in developed nations in the past century, but it is still common in many cultures around the world."
