Two Papuans shot dead by Indonesian military personnel

first_img“The son, Selu, walked ahead of the group and was stopped and interrogated by TNI personnel at a post near Keneyam river. He was also beaten during the interrogation,” the witness told The Jakarta Post on Monday.He said at the time of the interrogation, Selu was carrying an axe. “He used the axe to cut firewood or to make emergency bridges to cross rivers during the journey.”Upon hearing Selu’s arrest, Elias went to the military post to pick up his son.”Not long after I and other displaced people resumed our journey to Keneyam, we heard gunshots,” the witness said. “We knew that Elias and Selu had been shot to death after arriving at the district.” Two men, Elias Karungu and Selu Karungu, from conflict-prone Nduga regency, Papua, were fatally shot by Indonesian Military (TNI) personnel on Saturday. Locals claimed the two were displaced civilians, while the Indonesian Military claimed the two were members of an armed group.The father and son were killed when returning to Keneyam district, the capital of the regency, after hiding in forests for more than a year to avoid conflicts between the TNI and an armed group linked to the Free Papua Movement (OPM), a witness who requested anonymity for security reasons claimed.The witness said that Elias and Selu made the trip with dozens of other displaced locals from Paro and Yengelo districts who were also seeking refuge in the forests. Read also: OPM says TNI, police shot medical workers in PapuaThe Indonesian Military have maintained a strong presence in Nduga regency since December 2018, following the killing of more than 30 workers of state-owned company Istaka Karya in the regency by an armed group linked to the Free Papua Movement (OPM) lead by Egianus Kogoya.The construction workers were assigned to build a 275-kilometer section of road to connect Wamena and Mamugu as part of President Jokowi’s flagship trans-Papua road project.The killings led to a protracted security crisis in Nduga, forcing civilians to seek refuge in the neighboring regency of Wamena.Residents from Paro, Yengalo and Yal districts who had difficult access to neighboring regencies opted to hide in forests in the wake of the conflicts. However, after illness and starvation plagued their hideout they decided to return to Keneyam.As many as 139 refugees had died from starvation and illness caused by poor living conditions in the shelters, as reported by the Nduga Solidarity Civil Society Coalition in July last year. The government vehemently rejected the figure and claimed that only 53 displaced people had died.The death of Elias and Selu sparked outrage among locals who staged a rally on Sunday near Keneyam airport.”We did not go to the church on Sunday. We took to the street demanding the military hand over Elias and Selu’s bodies,” a local, who also requested anonymity for security reasons, said.After the military handed over the bodies, Elias and Selu were buried in a cemetery where Hendrik Lokbere was laid to rest. Hendrik was a close aide of Nduga deputy regent Wentius Nimiangge who was shot dead by an unidentified perpetrator on a road in Kenyam district in December 2019.Col. GN Sunastawa of the Joint Defense Area Command III (Kogabwilhan III) covering Papua and Maluku claimed that both Elias and Selu were actually members of the Egianus Kogoya armed group.”Military personnel have marked them as targets. They were members of an armed group led by Egianus Kogoya. We have the evidence, guns and ammunition,” Sunastawa told the Post on Monday.

Ahead of Future Winter Storms, Governor Wolf, PennDOT Stress Safety, Preparedness

first_img January 10, 2017 Ahead of Future Winter Storms, Governor Wolf, PennDOT Stress Safety, Preparedness SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Press Release,  PSA,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – As the winter season continues, Governor Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) are urging motorists to prepare their vehicles and take time to familiarize themselves with winter safety laws as part of Winter Driving Awareness Week, running through January 14.“You can take just a few simple steps to be prepared and help keep you and others safe,” Governor Wolf said. “I urge all Pennsylvanians to prepare for winter driving and upcoming inclement weather.”“It is important that drivers plan, and prepare their vehicles ahead of time, as weather patterns can change rapidly,” PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said. “Taking the proper steps before you hit the road will help keep you and other drivers safe this season.”Drivers should frequently check all fluid levels, lights and wiper blades. Tires should be also be examined often for the correct level of air pressure and adequate tire-tread depth to perform on ice and snow.Richards urged drivers to get their vehicles serviced by a mechanic as soon as possible if they haven’t already. A properly trained, trustworthy mechanic can check the cooling system, battery, hoses, drive belts, tires and wiper blades to ensure they are in good condition and functioning properly.Finally, the traveling public should also prepare or restock a vehicle emergency kit. The kit should contain items such as non-perishable food, water, first-aid supplies, warm clothes, a blanket, cell phone charger and a small snow shovel. Motorists should tailor their kits to any specific needs that they or their families have such as baby supplies, extra medication and pet supplies.Motorists should also be aware that all vehicles should be fully clear of ice and snow before winter travel. If snow or ice is dislodged or falls from a moving vehicle and strikes another vehicle or pedestrian causing death or serious bodily injury, the operator of that vehicle could receive a $200 to $1,000 fine.When winter weather does occur, PennDOT asks drivers to be extra cautious around operating snow-removal equipment. When encountering a plow truck, drivers should:Stay at least six car lengths behind an operating plow truck and remember that the main plow is wider than the truck.Be alert since plow trucks generally travel much more slowly than other traffic.When a plow truck is traveling toward you, move as far away from the center of the road as is safely possible, and remember that snow can obscure the actual snow plow width.Never try to pass or get between several trucks plowing side by side in a “plow train.” The weight of the snow thrown from the plow can quickly cause smaller vehicles to lose control, creating a hazard for nearby vehicles.Never travel next to a plow truck since there are blind spots where the operator can’t see and they can occasionally be moved sideways when hitting drifts or heavy snowpack.Keep your lights on to help the operator better see your vehicle. Also remember that under Pennsylvania state law, vehicle lights must be on every time a vehicle’s wipers are on due to inclement weather.To help make decisions as to whether to travel during winter weather, motorists are encouraged to “Know Before You Go” by checking conditions on more than 40,000 roadway miles, including color-coded winter conditions on 2,900 miles, by visiting www.511PA.com. 511PA, which is free and available 24 hours a day, provides traffic delay warnings, weather forecasts, traffic speed information and access to more than 770 traffic cameras.511PA is also available through a smartphone application for iPhone and Android devices, by calling 5-1-1, or by following regional Twitter alerts accessible on the 511PA website.For more information on safe winter travel, an emergency kit checklist and information on PennDOT’s winter operations including a video released this winter, visit www.penndot.gov/winter. Additional winter driving and other highway safety information is available at www.penndot.gov/safetyFollow the conversation by using #PAWinter on Twitter at www.twitter.com/PennDOTNews and like the department on Facebook at www.facebook.com/PennsylvaniaDepartmentofTransportation.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolflast_img read more

Statoil: Worker injured on Mariner A released from hospital

first_imgAn offshore worker who was injured this week while working aboard the Statoil-operated Mariner platform in the UK North Sea on Monday, has been released from hospital.A Statoil spokesperson confirmed to Offshore Energy Today on Tuesday that the incident had happened aboard the Mariner A platform, without providing details on the nature of the injury. The worker is not a Statoil employee, but a contractor.“The individual was taken shortly afterwards by Coastguard helicopter to Shetland for medical treatment and has since been released. The family of the person involved has been informed.“Our first priority is to ensure the safety of our people. An investigation is underway to analyze the cause of the incident and determine any remedial actions,” the spokesperson said.Statoil is the operator of the Mariner field, discovered in 1981 some 150 km east of the Shetland Islands. It is one of the largest projects currently under development in the UKCS.When Statoil and partners decided to develop the Mariner heavy oil field east of the Shetland Islands in December 2012, it was the largest capital commitment to the UK continental Shelf (UKCS) in more than a decade.The development includes a production, drilling, and quarters platform based on a steel jacket, named Mariner A, with a floating storage unit, called Mariner B. Drilling will be carried out from the Mariner A platform, with a jack-up rig assisting for the first four years.Statoil has recently informed that, on Wednesday, August 2 the final piece of the 38 000 tonne Mariner A topside had been installed, adding that the hook up and commissioning of the Mariner platform would last for more than a year. The Mariner field is expected to come on stream in late 2018.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

Van Oord’s Deep Dig-It Trencher Ready for Its First Job

first_imgTenneT, with the help of Van Oord, is building the Hollandse Kust (South) offshore grid to the north of the Maasvlakte, to connect new wind farms.The cables have to be buried more than 5 meters in the seabed for the first ten kilometers of the offshore cable route, as to be able to cross the busy Rotterdam Maasmond shipping lane.For this specific job, Van Oord designed and built the Deep Dig-It trencher, a gigantic and remotely controlled trencher.Van Oord, being part of the Van Oord-Hellenic Cables consortium, is conducting final tests with this enormous machine in the Alexiahaven (harbor), in preparation for the actual installation of the sea cables in July.The Deep Dig-It is a so-called “Tracked Remotely Operated Vehicle” (TROV), which drives unmanned over the seabed, creating a deep trench for the cables, while simultaneously inserting the cables and then closing the trench again.Special about this new trencher is that it is the largest and most powerful machine in its class. The trencher weighs 125.000 kilos, is more than 17 meters long, well over 8 meters high, and 11 meters wide.Next to the large power installed of 2,500 HP, the depth of burial that can be achieved by the trencher is unmatched: well over 5 meters.The Deep Dig-It will be controlled from Van Oord’s offshore installation vessel MPI Adventure, which is equipped with a crane that launches and recovers the Deep Dig-It into the sea.last_img read more

District ordered to pay transgender student $75K

first_imgNZ Herald 3 December 2014A Maine court has awarded a transgender girl $75,000 in a settlement of her discrimination lawsuit against a school district where administrators made her use a staff, not student, bathroom.Nicole Maines won her lawsuit against the Orono school district in January before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1vLJxyR ) reports that a lower court awarded her the settlement last week.Penobscot County Superior Court issued an order Nov. 25 that prohibited the district from “refusing access by transgender students to school restrooms that are consistent with their gender identity.”The order says the district must pay the $75,000 to Boston-based Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders and Berman Simmons, a Portland law firm that represented Maines. The money will cover legal expenses and related costs, with a portion going to her family.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=11367963last_img read more

Pence visits rack up hometown overtime costs

first_imgMaureen Groppe, USA Today, WASHINGTON — There’s pride in being the hometown of the vice president.But there’s also a cost.The Columbus, Ind., police and fire departments are running out of budgeted overtime pay to cover visits by Vice President Pence.The city council has given initial approval to an ordinance Tuesday increasing the overtime budgets for the departments by a combined $70,000. That’s about an 18 percent increase in the $390,388 initially approved for overtime pay this year.The ordinance says the extra funding is needed because of “unanticipated overtime events related to vice-presidential visits to our city.”But Columbus Mayor James Lienhoop said only about half the extra cost is related to Pence visits. And, he added, the expense is “well within our ability to manage.”“It’s a good problem to have,” Lienhoop said. “We’re proud of Mike and pleased to be able to participate in some small way to his service to our country.”The cost of Pence’s travel became an issue in October after he went to an Indianapolis Colts game, only to leave after the national anthem when some players on the opposing team knelt during the anthem to raise awareness of racial inequalities in the nation.The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department spent more than $14,000 providing security for Pence’s brief visit to the game.Pence flew in and out of Indianapolis on that trip. When he went to the Indianapolis 500 in May, however, Air Force 2 landed in Columbus. Pence also used the Columbus airport when traveling to Brown County State Park last month for a celebration of his son’s marriage.Pence made at least one trip to Columbus by car from Indianapolis this year. And the city wants to be prepared if he makes a visit during the holiday season. Pence’s mother and other relatives live in Columbus.Paying for the overtime requires shifting money from other personnel costs, funding that likely would otherwise go unspent, according to Lienhoop.The city doesn’t fill every request made by the Secret Service, the mayor said. But, “we want to be a team player.”For Pence arrivals by Air Force 2, that means having firefighting equipment waiting at the airport. Police officers can help with the vice president’s motorcade, or provide additional manpower to the Secret Service’s protection for wherever Pence is visiting in Columbus.Lienhoop said he’s not aware of any opposition to increasing the overtime budgets, which has to be considered at two council meetings before it can be approved.“I suppose somebody could show up. Mike is well liked here, but he’s not universally highly approved of. There are people here who I’m sure did not vote for him. And they might have an issue with this,” Lienhoop said.last_img read more

Gabriel Magalhaes to wear No6 jersey at Arsenal

first_imgArsenal new boy, Gabriel Magalhaes will follow in the footsteps of the legendary Tony Adams by wearing the No 6 shirt. The ex-Lille man’s £27million arrival at the Emirates was confirmed on Tuesday. It is two away from his favourite jersey number though – with fellow new arrival William Saliba already getting the No 4. Some other huge names in the club’s history to have worn the No 6 shirt include Laurent Koscielny, Martin Keown, and David Rocastle. The Gunners were already advertising on their website last night how to buy the ‘Gabriel 6’ shirt. But Magalhaes – who idolises Neymar and comes from the same academy as Eden Hazard and Nicolas Pepe – revealed it was talking with Edu, who used to wear Arsenal’s 17, that convinced him to join. read also:Gabriel has many qualities which will make Arsenal stronger, says Arteta The Brazilian defender, 22, told arsenal.com: “[Edu and I] had several chats about Arsenal and the new project, we had many good conversations. “As the days went by I was getting very excited about it, then I had a call from the coach and that was very reassuring. Loading… “Having the coach himself calling you to say he wants you in his squad motivates you a lot. That is the very reason I am here today. “We did not talk about [details], he just told me he is aware of my quality, my capacity and how far I can go. He also said he will be very demanding with me. “I know he is a great coach and I will make progress with his help.” Magalhaes also revealed being flooded with messages on social media played a critical role in his decision too. He added: “So many fans were sending me messages asking me to join Arsenal, and that played a big part in me signing for this club. “I know the history and traditions of this club and it is a pleasure being here. I am very happy and hope I can contribute to many titles with the Arsenal shirt. “It was a very surreal experience, there were offers coming from a few different clubs. “I spoke a lot with my family and my agents, I also spoke with some of Lille’s directors, but as I said, this club’s history and traditions and the team project for the next few years were very motivational for my decision to come here. “So here I am, wearing the Arsenal shirt, I will give my best for it and come on you Gunners!” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Promoted ContentBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World6 Most Overpowered Live Action Disney CharactersUnderappreciated Movies You Missed In 20196 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A Drone7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti20 “The Big Bang Theory” Moments Only A Few Fans Knew About10 Phones That Can Easily Fit In The Smallest PocketWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?The Best Cars Of All Timelast_img read more

Demichelis set to extend City stay

first_img Press Association Pellegrini said: “We will see, in the next days maybe he can renew his contract. “I think Martin is a very important player for our squad, he is an experienced player, he is a leader of our group. He wants to stay. Probably, he will sign another contract.” Demichelis, a former Bayern Munich centre-back, played for Pellegrini at River Plate and Malaga before following him to City after a strange, brief stint at Atletico Madrid, where he did not play a single game. Pellegrini’s suggestions of a new deal come a year after Demichelis’ City career hit its nadir with his sending off against Barcelona. Demichelis’ early City performances were unimpressive and his dismissal in the Champions League last-16 tie first leg at the Etihad Stadium – a fixture which is repeated next week – attracted considerable criticism. But he bounced back with some commanding performances in City’s successful Barclays Premier League title run-in and he is now likely to be rewarded with an extension. City’s other major contract issue at present concerns midfielder James Milner. The club have been in discussions with the England international, who also becomes a free agent in the summer, for some time but no new deal has yet been agreed. Demichelis, who joined City in the opening weeks of last season, has overcome a difficult start at the Etihad Stadium to establish himself as a key member of the champions’ rearguard. The 34-year-old Argentinian is out of contract at the end of the campaign but Pellegrini, who has worked with the player at two previous clubs, is keen for him to stay. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini expects defender Martin Demichelis to sign a new contract with the club. Milner has impressed in a variety of positions this season and Pellegrini wants him to stay. The 29-year-old is reportedly happy with the terms on offer but the sticking point is thought to relate to playing opportunities. The versatile Milner is also City’s chief injury doubt for Tuesday’s visit of Barcelona with a knee problem. City are hopeful the injury is not serious but he has been ruled out of Saturday’s home encounter with Newcastle and will be assessed in the coming days. Asked if he might be fit to face Barca, Pellegrini said: “We will try. We’ll see how he improves in the next days. “He is talking with the doctor about all the situations. I don’t think it will be very serious. He has a kick in his ligament in his knee.” last_img read more
