Opinio Juris » Blog Archive » The OTP Makes a Serious Legal Error Concerning Libya and Saif | Global politics | Scoop.it

The OTP has weighed in on Libya’s ongoing challenge to the admissibility of the case against Saif Gaddafi. In its view, although there are serious questions concerning whether Libya is investigating the same conduct as the OTP, Libya is currently willing and able to conduct a genuine prosecution. Unfortunately, its conclusion regarding ability rests on a very serious legal error. Here are the relevant paragraphs (emphasis mine):

Russia accepted over 1mn Ukrainian refugees forced out of homes by Donbass war

Russia accepted over 1mn Ukrainian refugees forced out of homes by Donbass war | Global politics | Scoop.it
Over 1 million people have moved to Russia from southeast Ukraine since the beginning of the armed conflict and about 600,000 of them decided never to return home, the head of the Federal Migration Service says.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

So while the European states cry out for the "flood" of "migrants", or refugees, the Russians humanely welcome over one million from Ukraine, i.e., a conflict provoked by the Western greed to expansion and domination. Likewise the Europeans should assume that the wars they have launched in places such as Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and so on, have provoked such a huge humanitarian catastrophe, and get ready to welcome the refugees, like in Russia.

Scientists to flood Middle East with 1,000s of 3D cameras to ‘save’ ancient sites from ISIS

Scientists to flood Middle East with 1,000s of 3D cameras to ‘save’ ancient sites from ISIS | Global politics | Scoop.it
Scientists are going to use thousands of specially-modified 3D cameras to preserve for humanity images of historic sites and artifacts in the Middle East, which are at risk of being destroyed by Islamic State jihadists.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

What a sad consolation! Virtual images to preserve historic sites which speak to us of our past, and which are destroyed by a bunch of mindless brutes, along with innocent people because of their faith or their ethnicity, and the world does nothing. ISIS is the present top of inhumanity and horror.

Virginia journalists’ death details revealed

Virginia journalists’ death details revealed | Global politics | Scoop.it
The two Virginia journalists shot earlier this week both received gunshot wounds to the head, according to state officials. The causes of death for Alison Parker and Adam Ward have been classed as homicides.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

So journalists are also killed in the US! By a disgruntled madman... Why such insane violence? You are angry wih your employer, and you shoot people! And it happens all too often in the US, and after wide reporting, as a copycat elsewhere.

Fort Russ: "Suppose for a minute that our army IS operating in Donbass" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

This calls for some military cultural background. The Russian army uses digital radio with the local encryption. Intercept it, maybe; decipher it, no. The code changes on an arbitrary and unpredictable schedule: every 50 minutes, hour, hour and twenty-two... . Ukrainian military, and "separatists," use the old analog format, which you can hear. But with the Russian army right now all you hear is a crackle and a characteristic murmur.

Принуждение к Минску-2 или двурушничество? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Буквально за несколько часов до вылета в Берлин, на параде в честь дня независимости, П.Порошенко совершенно откровенно признал, что накануне в зону боевых действий была отправлена крупнейшая за всю историю Украины партия танков, гаубиц, бронемашин и артиллерии. До конца года «миротворец» Порошенко пообещал в текущем году дать армии 300 БТР, 400 БМП, 30 тыс. ракет и боеприпасов, а также увеличивать расходы на оборону и продолжать волны мобилизации, названной в народе "могилизацией"..

Fort Russ: Zakharchenko Interview Exclusive: "The war can only end in our unconditional victory" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

We will liberate Mariupol and Slavyansk from the punitive forces for sure. The ranks of the army of the DPR contain many fighters from these cities. As for the rest of so-called Ukraine, I can say one thing. It’s not needed to sit and wait idly by. If you want to get rid of the illegal government, destroy the fascists, and make it so that Ukraine ceases to be a puppet in the hands of the American puppeteers, then you should take a more active position.

Fort Russ: Polish Bikers Warmly Received in Russia, a stark contrast to Night Wolves fiasco [video]

Fort Russ: Polish Bikers Warmly Received in Russia, a stark contrast to Night Wolves fiasco [video] | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The tale of two different “welcomes” in the case of Rajd Katynski and the Night Wolves portrays the sad consequences of the virulent Russophobia and hysteria that is being whipped up in various Eastern European countries, especially in Poland. At the same time, the warm greeting provided by the Russians in Smolensk and the gathering of Poles to welcome the Night Wolves back in May offers a glimpse of hope that the two peoples haven’t been driven to hate each other as fellow human beings and Slavs by the propaganda which is meant to instruct them to do so.

Ukraine has agreed a restructuring deal to reduce its debt burden by about $3.6 billion. Moscow has refused to agree to Kiev’s terms.

Ukraine’s Poroshenko says ‘no Minsk-3’ as Moscow hopes for ceasefire

Ukraine’s Poroshenko says ‘no Minsk-3’ as Moscow hopes for ceasefire | Global politics | Scoop.it
The possibility of a new peace deal agreement that could improve the situation in Eastern Ukraine is off the table, says Ukraine’s president Petro Poroshenko, as a contact group meeting in Minsk ended with a proposal to ensure a stable ceasefire.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Poroshenko is not interested in implementing Minsk, and is doing his best to sabotage it. His only wish is continue a lost-in-advance war in order to keep receiving money from his international donors and prevent the Ukrainian people from revolting against the misery his ultranationalist government has brought them.

Fort Russ: What's the Difference between the US vs. Russian Economic Crises?

Fort Russ: What's the Difference between the US vs. Russian Economic Crises? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
Europe and the United States are full of transport infrastructure – there is almost nowhere to develop a network of roads. They are reaching the level of a nearly total specialization in industry, a colossally developed wholesale and retail trade, and the retail market is over-saturated. This is the overproduction which, by the way, even caused a prolonged economic crisis in Japan in the 1990’s, when they reached the peak of industrial production by means of a gigantically over-credited economy overlapped by structural problems, the rise of new Asian industrial giants, and socio-demographic factors.

Fort Russ: Will EU push Kiev back to Minsk II, or is it EU Duplicity? | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The hypocrisy is obvious, since diplomatic vehicles from EU countries covered the putschists from the "Berkut" charge, and the fiery speeches of European politicians from the rostrum of the Maidan went around the world. And if someone is to be considered a party of the conflict which led to the civil war in Ukraine, it is the Europeans themselves.

Одесский депутат, мы тебя видим | ПолитНавигатор | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Информационное пространство Одессы, действительно, под контролем националистов. Высшие киевские хунтята не устают с гордостью называть Одессу бандеровским городом. И даже социологам удалось накамлать хитрые проценты, по которым нацистов в Одессе около двух третей. Однако, такая картина рушится, когда в оккупированном городе десятки тысяч людей несут цветы к Дому Профсоюзов. Когда на Аллею Славы выходит чуть не весь город. И даже в дни выборов, назначенных националистическими властями. Когда на само голосование является менее 30% одесситов, и даже тогда нацисты проигрывают.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Мариуполь и Славянск мы обязательно освободим от карателей. В рядах армии ДНР сражается много бойцов из этих городов.  Что касается остальной части так называемой Украины, могу сказать одно. Сидеть и ждать, сложа руки, не нужно. Если вы хотите избавиться от незаконной власти, уничтожить фашистов, сделать так, чтобы Украина перестала быть безвольной марионеткой в руках американских кукловодов, вы должны проявлять более активную позицию. Никто не сделает вашу жизнь лучше вместо вас. Украинским политикам и олигархам вы нужны только в качестве пушечного мяса для достижения своих целей. Победу не приносят на блюдечке с голубой каемочкой, победа добывается потом и кровью. А дальше думайте сами – сидеть и ждать или взять ситуацию в свои руки.

Refugees come to EU because they have no other choice – UN

Refugees come to EU because they have no other choice – UN | Global politics | Scoop.it
Measures like fences won’t improve the EU refugee crisis, says UNHCR spokesperson Melissa Fleming. It is people’s right to seek asylum if they flee from war and be allowed to stay until peace comes to their home country.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

The root cause, Mrs Fleming, is not violence in abstract, or violence because different groups fight one another, the root cause is Euro-American intervention in all those countries (plus Libya, which you failed to mention), either by aggressing them straight away and dismantling their states and societies, or by promoting vicious civil wars and creating mercenary armies. Why all these pundits forget such an obvious fact? The migrants' crisis doesn't come out of the blue, it has been hopelessly manufactured by the West, it is a blowback of Western domination policies.
They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind.

TTIP smokescreen: Documents on EC talks with Big Tobacco heavily redacted

TTIP smokescreen: Documents on EC talks with Big Tobacco heavily redacted | Global politics | Scoop.it
Redacted documents detailing covert meetings between the European Commission (EC) and powerful tobacco lobbyists have compounded fears a secretive EU-US trade deal would allow tobacco giants to sue governments that attempt to legislate in the public interest.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

This glaring lack of transparency has sparked widespread fear among TTIP’s critics that the trade deal would empower tobacco giants to sue governments that seek to regulate the tobacco industry more stringently.

Powerful tobacco firms have previously used comparable trade deals to sue the governments of other states who sought to crack down on tobacco advertising in the public interest.
