To grant them anticipatory bail, the High Court observed that (a) “the FIR prima facie appears to be engineered to implicate the applicants”; (b) “there is no corelation in between the various allegations leveled in the FIR”; and (c) the allegations “are general in nature” with no specific role being assigned to the accused.Referring to the case records, the bench, also comprising Justices Indu Malhotra and Indira Banerjee observed that the investigation by the UP Police in the present case ‘leaves much to be desired’. The bench also disagreed with the High Court’s reasons to grant the anticipatory bail to the accused. It said:”The FIR contains a recital of allegations bearing on the role of the accused in demanding dowry, of the prior incidents of assault and the payment of moneys by cheque to the in-laws of the deceased. The FIR has referred to the telephone calls which were received both from the father-in-law of the deceased on the morning of 3 August 2020 and from the deceased on two occasions on the same day- a few hours before her body was found. The grant of anticipatory bail in such a serious offence would operate to obstruct the investigation. The FIR by a father who has suffered the death of his daughter in these circumstances cannot be regarded as “engineered” to falsely implicate the spouse of the deceased and his family. “The court noted that, in this case, charge-sheet has been submitted to the competent court on 5 November 2020. The bench said that submission of the charge-sheet does not oust the jurisdiction of a superior court, when the investigation is tainted and there is a real likelihood of justice being deflected. Referring to Vinay Tyagi vs Irshad (2013) 5 SCC 762, the bench observed:”The court held that wherever a charge-sheet has been submitted to the court, even this Court would not ordinarily reopen the investigation especially by entrusting it to a specialized agency. However, in a proper case, when the Court feels that the investigation by the police has not been in the proper perspective and that in order to do complete justice, where the facts of the case demand that the investigation be handed over to a specialized agency, a superior court is not bereft of the authority to do so.”The bench also referred to judgments in Pooja Pal vs Union of India (2016) 3 SCC 135 and Dharam Pal vs State of Haryana (2016) 4 SCC 160, which upheld the power of the Apex Court to transfer an investigation to the CBI, irrespective of the stage of the trial. The court observed that the conduct of the investigating authorities in this case from the stage of arriving at the scene of occurrence to the filing of the charge-sheet do not inspire confidence in the robustness of the process. To transfer ‘ further investigation’ to CBI, the Court invoked its powers under Article 142 of the Constitution and said:It would indeed be a travesty if this Court were to ignore the glaring deficiencies in the investigation conducted so far, irrespective of the stage of the proceedings or the nature of the question before this Court. The status of the accused as propertied and wealthy persons of influence in Agra and the conduct of the investigation thus far diminishes this Court’s faith in directing a further investigation by the same authorities. The cause of justice would not be served if the Court were to confine the scope of its examination to the wisdom of granting anticipatory bail and ignore the possibility of a trial being concluded on the basis of a deficient investigation at best or a biased one at worst.Case: Dr Naresh Kumar Mangla vs. Anita Agarwal [ Criminal Appeal Nos.872-873 of 2020 ]Coram: Justices DY Chandrachud, Indu Malhotra and Indira BanerjeeCounsel: Sr. Adv Shekhar Naphade for appellant., Sr. Adv R Basant and Sr. Adv Sidharth Luthra for respondent, Sr. Adv Vimlesh Kumar Shukla for stateClick here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Alex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — A federal court in Washington, D.C., has denied a bid by a Russian firm to join an appeal brought by an American who is seeking to challenge the legitimacy of Robert Mueller’s appointment to special counsel.U.S. Court of Appeals Judges David Tatel and Thomas Griffith ruled Thursday that the firm, Concord Management and Consulting, LLC., did not have standing to “intervene” in the appellate case brought by Andrew Miller, a former associate of longtime Donald Trump friend and Republican political operative Roger Stone.Prosecutors allege Concord financed a St. Petersburg “troll factory” called the Internet Research Agency, which U.S. officials say set up hundreds of fake or automated social media accounts as part of a widespread online influence campaign ahead of the 2016 election. The firm has pleaded not guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit fraud.Miller served as an aide to Stone until 2013, according to Stone, who once described Miller as his “wingman” because he helped manage Stone’s schedule, travel and media appearances, and also provided “some I.T. work.” Miller identifies himself as a libertarian and has said he did not support Trump’s candidacy, but he did accompany Stone to the 2016 Republican National Convention.Miller turned over requested documents to prosecutors but was also subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in the Russia probe in late June. After an unsuccessful attempt by his attorney last month to quash the subpoena to testify, Miller was held in contempt of court for refusing to comply with it. ABC News reported earlier this month that Miller’s legal fight, now heading to the U.S. Court of Appeals, is being steered by a veteran Washington legal group that has a history of taking on Democrats and is bankrolled, in part, by longstanding Republican donors.Attorneys for both Miller and Concord have argued that Mueller’s appointment as special counsel was unconstitutional — and both have lost those arguments in lower courts. Miller appealed his loss and, late last week, attorneys for Reed Smith, the American law firm representing Concord, moved to legally join in that appeal.“Basic fairness therefore dictates that Concord should be permitted to participate in this appeal,” Concord’s motion said. Concord has also filed its own appeal, but said the “unique circumstances of this case,” including the overlapping arguments against Mueller’s appointment, should permit the firm to join in with Miller’s.Miller’s attorney did not oppose the move, but the special counsel team did.In its response filed on Monday, prosecutors said that Concord should not be allowed to join Miller’s appellate case because the firm “has not suffered a concrete and particularized injury as a result of the district court’s contempt finding against Andrew Miller.”Thursday the court sided with Mueller’s team, but ordered Concord be eligible to file an amicus brief – its own argument presumably in support of Miller’s side — should it choose to do so.Concord, which prosecutors say is controlled by a close associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin, is one of three Russian entities, along with 13 Russian individuals, charged in connection with the alleged online influence operation, according to court documents. Concord is the only defendant to engage with the court through its U.S.-based attorneys. The attorneys did not respond to requests for comment for this report.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Ambulance staff in London are to be given lessons in self-defence and how todefuse dangerous situations in order to improve the safety of paramedics. London Ambulance Service has also introduced a register of high-riskaddresses so that crews are aware where there have been violent incidents inthe past, and it is to start trials of two different types of stab-proof vests.Wendy Foers, HR director for LAS, said the measures are being brought in tocontinue the recent reduction in the number of violent incidents against staff.The self-defence course content is still being put together and it will belaunched in two to three months’ time in areas where ambulance crews are mostat risk. Foers said, “It is very much about recognising dangerous situations andbeing able to deal with them, particularly with talk-down techniques. They willalso be given training in things like push-away techniques.” The register of high-risk addresses was launched in April, and the centralambulance control system now alerts crews if they going to an address wherethere has been previous violent incidents. “We want to give our crews as much information as possible and alertthem of any potential dangers,” said Foers.

HR: Does business hours mean all hours?Shared from missc on 9 Dec 2014 in Personnel Today Read full article Previous Article Next Article Has “normal business hours” become a thing of the past? These days, I rarely meet anyone who almost immediately following waking up in the morning, wont grab their phone from the bedside to check their email, or who considers their nights to be personal or family time, which not so long ago seemed the norm. What is it about modern day issues and work problems that are more important than those that we were facing years ago that can’t wait until the next day? Or is it a simple case that our ability to prioritize is being depleted due to such ease of systems access which allows many organisations’ staff to turn any computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device into a make-shift work station?I’m as guilty as the next person of the late night emails and struggling to switch off but I’m one of the lucky ones who enjoys what I do enough that it doesn’t feel like a chore. What about those who aren’t as lucky and feel like they don’t have the pressure release of being able to go home and un-wind?Human nature dictates that if we get too used to something, it becomes habitual and we begin to expect it. This being the case, if this isn’t carefully managed, how long will it be before being “switched on” at all times is an expected part of a job as opposed to it being a sign of an engaged and happy employee who will strive to go above and beyond any contractual obligations? Don’t get me wrong, the huge emphasis which these days is placed on interoperability and mobility of internal systems of course is a great thing and phenomenal feat in technology advancement but with it comes the potential for more risk, more pressure and more un-happy staff if it is not managed well.
