I dont trust anybody St Annes survivor feels betrayed as federal government

first_imgLucy ScholeyAPTN NewsA former St. Anne’s Indian Residential School student says she has lost faith in Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett after learning the federal government is seeking thousands of dollars in legal fees from a lawyer representing the survivors.Angela Shisheesh, who attended the Fort Albany, Ont. school infamous for using a homemade electric chair as punishment and entertainment, said she thinks the federal government is warning other lawyers to back down from defending Indigenous people in court.“I don’t trust anybody anymore,” Shisheesh says.In a rare legal move, the federal government is seeking $25,000 in legal costs from lawyer Fay Brunning, who has been representing St. Anne’s students for years.Shisheesh said this contradicts what Bennett told her and other St. Anne’s students during a meeting in April, when the government was seeking an apology from the Pope over the Catholic Church’s role in the abuses inflicted on Indigenous children at residential schools.Shisheesh said she left the meeting under the impression that Bennett would not pursue Brunning in court.“She lied to me, literally. She lied to me. It hurts. It’s just another abuse, that’s how I feel right now,” said Shisheesh, through tears.St. Anne’s residential school was the subject of more than 60 lawsuits for the physical, sexual and psychological horrors inflicted on Indigenous students.Much of the abuse was documented in thousands of pages generated from an Ontario provincial police investigation. While the federal government has released some of the materials, much of it has been kept secret.Brunning has been fighting for access to the documents, which survivors say is relevant to their compensation claims.Ontario Superior Court Justice Paul Perell ruled the government was within its right to withhold those documents and the Appeal Court agreed.Brunning has been critical of the decision, alleging the court was biased in favour of Canada – comments that did not sit well with Perell.In January, he issued a scathing ruling stating Brunning “slandered the court” and acted unprofessionally, which lead to the federal court’s decision to pursue legal fees from Brunning.James Fitz-Morris, Bennett’s director of communications, calls it an “exceptional” situation.“Canada has not – and will not – seek costs against individual claimants,” he says in an email. However, “in exceptional circumstances – costs can be sought against lawyers who do not appear to be acting responsibly.”Any costs paid by Brunning will be donated to a fund that supports former students, he says.NDP MP Charlie Angus, who represents the riding where St. Anne’s was located, calls the move a “simple intimidation tactic” intended to stifle lawyers fighting claims.“Carolyn Bennett met with survivors and said that she would stop this vendetta and yet she walked out of that meeting and business carried on,” he told APTN News. “To me, that is the most shocking thing that a government minister could look survivors in the eye and lie to them. I don’t know how else to call it.”“We left that meeting with an understanding that these legal battles were going to end and there was going to be some form of justice.”Cathy McLeod, the Conservative Indigenous issues critic, says the Liberal government has been inconsistent in its messaging about reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.“It just shows the absurdity of the current government,” she said. “They sort of say that they want to move towards better relations and they want to be transparent and whether it is the young girl … fighting her dental care in court or going after lawyers who are trying to do the right thing for residential school survivors, they’re just not congruent.”Bennett’s office has denied allegations the minister lied to St. Anne’s survivors.In a statement emailed through Fitz-Morris, Bennett says she’s reviewing the proposals from the former students of the school.“We can accomplish so much more working together outside of the confrontational courts – and we agreed to do that,” she said.The matter of costs between Brunning and the federal government has yet to be settled in court.Defence lawyer Lawrence Greenspon has filed a motion asking Perell to recuse himself from the matter, arguing the judge is biased against Brunning.It’s not the first time Brunning has been accused of defamation.Ontario law firm Wallbridge, Wallbridge filed a lawsuit against Brunning, alleging she defamed its lawyers when she claimed they sat on police files critical to a residential school survivor’s compensation claim.But for Shisheesh, Brunning is a champion for Indigenous rights.“Fay Brunning, she’s the best lawyer I have ever met. She has so much compassion towards Indigenous people, wanting to help them, and she did that out of the goodness of her heart.”lscholey@aptn.calast_img read more

Moroccos VoIP Ban Quietly Reversed Without Official Announcement

By Beryl KessioRabat – Today, some reports have surfaced that the National Telecommunications Regulatory Agency (ARNT) has quietly reversed its ban on VoIP services such as Skype, WhatsApp and more. The ARNT, however, has not released an official statement concerning the lifted restrictions; the loophole was discovered by trial and error.The ban was instituted in January on the grounds that free IP-based calling services weren’t licensed to operate as telecom entities in Morocco. The government’s undisclosed turnaround comes after a report that the Moroccan economy lost $320 million as a result of the decision to curtail use of VoIP services, according to the American Center for Technological Innovation at the Brookings Institution. Disgruntled Moroccans expressed their disapproval of the decision, launching campaigns calling on citizens to boycott the three main Moroccan telecommunications agencies: Maroc Telecom, Meditel and INWI. One Moroccan national even went to court to battle the ARNT’s authority to ban these services. Residents who have turned to VPNs (virtual private networks) to dodge the government’s restriction should not ditch them just yet. Despite the campaigns by Moroccan citizens and international criticism, some presume that the ban was temporarily lifted as a result of the fast-approaching COP 22 conference taking place in Marrakech in November, and will swiftly be reinstated after the conference ends. COP 22 proceedings will draw government officials, representatives of UN bodies and agencies, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations and media personnel to the kingdom. The actual functionality of VoIP services has yet to yield consistent results. read more

UN refugee chief travels to Sudan to spotlight problems at opposite ends

António Guterres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), is scheduled to arrive in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, on Monday, the agency’s spokesperson Ron Redmond told reporters today in Geneva. Mr. Guterres is expected to hold talks with senior Sudanese Government officials, including Foreign Minister Lam Akol, as well as UN staff.The trip, the second to Sudan by Mr. Guterres, will take place as the UN system has asked UNHCR to expand its operations in Darfur, where clashes between Government forces, allied Janjaweed militias and rebel groups have killed more than 200,000 people since 2003 and displaced another 2 million from their homes.On Tuesday Mr. Guterres is slated to head to El Geneina, the capital of West Darfur state, to meet IDPs, local authorities, African Union (AU) officials and staff from UN partner agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).West Darfur, one of three states comprising the vast Darfur region, is home to an estimated 700,000 IDPs, and UNHCR currently has access to about 500,000. Some 25,000 refugees from neighbouring Chad are also living in areas adjacent to the border.Mr. Redmond said Mr. Guterres is set to then travel to eastern Sudan’s Kassala state on Thursday to visit Kilo 26 and Wad Sherife, two camps for Eritrean and Ethiopian refugees.Eastern Sudan is home to about 136,000 refugees and there have been camps in that part of the country since 1968, but the situation there is largely forgotten because of the better known refugee situations of Darfur and southern Sudan.Mr. Redmond said UNHCR is shifting its activities in eastern Sudan from providing assistance to devising durable solutions, focusing on local integration as voluntary repatriation is not currently an option. Resettlement is also being considered for special cases. 20 April 2007The United Nations refugee chief heads to Sudan next week to discuss the western war-torn region of Darfur, home to a swelling population of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and Chadian refugees, and to also spotlight the forgotten situation in the country’s east, where Eritreans and Ethiopians have been living in camps for almost 40 years. read more

UN health agency launches new drive to develop childsize drugs

Citing the need for medicines better tailored to children’s needs, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) today unveiled plans for further research and development into child medicine. The agency presented its new initiative at the London launch of the “make medicines child size” campaign. Spearheaded by WHO, the campaign aims to raise awareness and spur action to address the need to ensure that all children under the age of 15 have better access to medicines appropriate for them. Greater efforts are needed in this area given that many medicines available today are not developed for children or available in suitable dosages or formats. When they are available, they are not reaching the children who need them most, notes WHO. “The gap between the availability and the need for child-appropriate medicines touches wealthy as well as poor countries,” said Dr. Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General. “As we strive for equitable access to scientific progress in health, children must be one of our top priorities.” According to WHO, more than half of children in industrialized societies are prescribed medicines whose dosages are intended for adults and not authorized for use in children. In developing countries, the problem is made worse by lower access to medicines. The agency adds that about six million children – out of the 10 million that do not reach their fifth birthday every year – die of treatable conditions and could be saved if the medicines they need were readily available, safe, effective and affordable. Pneumonia kills two million children under five each year and HIV kills 330,000 children under 15. “These illnesses can be treated, but many children don’t stand a chance because the medicines are either not appropriate for their age, don’t reach them or are priced too high – up to three times the price of adult drugs,” said Howard Zucker, WHO Assistant Director-General. The medicines that need to be adapted to children’s needs include many antibiotics, as well as asthma and pain medication. The campaign also calls for more research and development of combination pills for HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria, as well as appropriate child therapy for a number of neglected tropical diseases. To promote increased attention to research into children’s drugs, WHO is building an Internet portal to clinical trials carried out in children and will publish that information early next year. The agency is also releasing today the first international List of Essential Medicines for Children, containing over 200 medicines that are deemed safe for children. In addition, it will work with governments to address regulations for children’s medicines. 6 December 2007Citing the need for medicines better tailored to children’s needs, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) today unveiled plans for further research and development into child medicine. read more

Ban delighted at adoption of new cluster bomb convention

“I am delighted that the strong calls to address the humanitarian impact of cluster munitions have been answered with the adoption today of this new Convention,” Mr. Ban said in a statement issued by his spokesperson.“I welcome this successful outcome of the Dublin Diplomatic Conference, and congratulate everyone who contributed to the process,” he added.Delegations from 111 States have agreed on the text of the new international convention, which bans the use of cluster munitions. At the opening of the Diplomatic Conference on Cluster Munitions 11 days ago in Dublin, Mr. Ban said in a statement that the devices are “inherently inaccurate and often malfunction,” and they pose “a very real danger to civilians, both at the time of use and long after conflicts have ended.”The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) also reported that cluster munitions have been used for more than six decades, and have contaminated countries such as Laos, Viet Nam and Cambodia for over 30 years, while more recently they have been used in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq and southern Lebanon. Some 40 per cent of victims are children who are injured or killed long after direct hostilities have drawn to a close, the agency added. The Secretary-General said today that, “A broad-based coalition of States, international organizations and civil society has brought about a new international standard that will enhance the protection of civilians, strengthen human rights and improve prospects for development.”“The entire United Nations system stands ready to support and assist States in implementing their treaty obligations,” he added. “I therefore encourage States to sign and ratify this important agreement without delay, and I look forward to its rapid entry into force.” 30 May 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the adoption of the Convention on Cluster Munitions in Dublin, and encouraged Member States to ratify the new agreement. read more

Philip Rivers Has The Supporting Cast He Deserves Again

BUF52%HOU60%HOU 20, BUF 13+9.4– Game quality is the harmonic mean of the Elo ratings for the two teams in a given matchup.*Average change is weighted by the likelihood of a win or loss. (Ties are excluded.)Source: ESPN.com It probably isn’t a coincidence that Rivers is currently enjoying his best statistical performance in years, with Gordon and Allen also contributing more than any Charger rusher and receiver since the days of LaDainian Tomlinson and Vincent Jackson. It’s a little circular, in that sense: Is Rivers making them better, or are they helping Rivers rediscover his form? (Gordon’s ability to run against stacked defenses, for instance, has opened up space for Rivers to throw downfield.) Either way, the ingredients have been in place for a late-career QB rejuvenation. Right now, Rivers is on pace to tie for the ninth-most-efficient post-merger performance for a passer age 35 or older, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com’s advanced passing index. As far as old-man QB seasons go, this is one of the best in history.Of course, with the Chargers, it’s about more than just improved talent. It’s also about execution, something this team has often been found sorely lacking over the years. As Mike Tanier wrote in his L.A. chapter for Football Outsiders’ 2018 Almanac, you could make a pretty convincing case that the 2017 Chargers missed the playoffs because of two very fundamental football activities: tackling and kicking. Last year, Los Angeles let opponents break tackles at an incredible rate and missed numerous field goals and extra points, helping to turn a team with 10-and-a-half-win point differential into a sad-sack nine-game-winner.This year’s place-kicking game hasn’t been great (Caleb Sturgis made just 71 percent of his total field goals and extra points before he was sidelined by an injury), but it’s no longer dead-last in football, which I suppose is an accomplishment. Plus, the Chargers rank among the best in the league in terms of kickoffs, a big reason for their fourth-ranked net starting field position. And as for the tackling woes, they appear to be a thing of the past. According to Football Outsiders’ charting data, only 3.9 percent of plays by Charger opponents have seen a broken tackle, good for 10th best in the league this year. Relatedly, the Chargers are also allowing the league’s sixth-lowest rate of yards after first contact per rush this season, another major sign of defensive progress as compared with last season.

If Rivers and his improved supporting cast can continue to thrive up to and including the month of December, we’ll know the Chargers have stamped their ticket back to the postseason and given their star QB at least one more chance to shine on the game’s brightest stage.FiveThirtyEight vs. the readersAttention football fans!

And if you think you can outsmart Elo, step right up to our prediction game, which lets you pick against our model (and your fellow readers) for bragging rights and a place on our giant leaderboard.Here are the games where Elo made its best — and worst — predictions against the field of prognosticators last week: Conventional NFL wisdom says teams should do whatever it takes to snag a Franchise Quarterback™ — that from there, the winning just takes care of itself. But for most of Philip Rivers’s career, his Los Angeles (née San Diego) Chargers have been the exception to that rule. Taken fourth overall in the 2004 draft, Rivers has been the elite passer that teams dream about building around. And yet, his team has just four total playoff wins to show for it, including only one this decade.This year, though, Los Angeles looks poised to reverse that trend and actually capitalize on having a future Hall of Fame QB in its midst, while there’s still time left in Rivers’s career to do it. The Chargers walloped the Browns 38-14 in Cleveland last Sunday, bringing their record to 4-2 on the season — and giving them a 61 percent probability of making their first playoff appearance since 2013. Although L.A.’s postseason bid is far from assured, right now the Chargers have set themselves up with their most promising start to a season in a long time.This Charger renaissance has been building for a few years, since the team finally began surrounding Rivers again with better playmakers on both sides of the ball. On defense, that goes back to 2012, when former general manager A.J. Smith drafted pass-rusher Melvin Ingram 18th overall. After a slow start to his career, Ingram has blossomed into a Pro Bowler and an annual double-digit sack candidate. Under Smith’s successor, Tom Telesco, the Chargers have also grabbed several defensive contributors through the draft, including sack-machine DE Joey Bosa,1Who has missed the season so far with an injury but made the Pro Bowl last year. solid LB Denzel Perryman, up-and-coming CB Desmond King II and rookie S Derwin James (who, in his first season, already ranks as the NFL’s fifth-best safety according to ProFootballFocus’s player grades). Toss in outside pickups such as DT Brandon Mebane and CB Casey Hayward — another Pro Bowler from last season — plus the guidance of proven coordinator Gus Bradley, and the Chargers’ defensive talent base has undeniably made strides over the past handful of seasons.On offense, Telesco also made key acquisitions that helped pave the way for this year’s hot start when he took WR Keenan Allen in the third round of the 2013 draft and RB Melvin Gordon 15th overall in 2015. Picking first-round running backs is always tricky business, but Gordon has been a good one so far in his career, with a couple of 1,400-yards-from-scrimmage seasons under his belt (in 2016 and 2017) and an excellent start to 2018 as well. Meanwhile, Allen has taken the lead from top San Diego-era targets Malcom Floyd and Antonio Gates and forged his own chemistry with Rivers — only four receivers leaguewide have more yards through the air since 2017 than Allen does. (It also helps that Allen has stayed healthy these past two seasons after missing 23 combined games in 2015-16.) Allen and Gordon aren’t the only teammates making Rivers’s life easier: The offensive line has been much better with free-agent C Mike Pouncey anchoring the middle, while change-of-pace RB Austin Ekeler has proven himself exceptionally tough to bring down — he leads all RBs in yards after first contact per rush. More broadly, in its second year under head coach Anthony Lynn, Los Angeles now has the offensive pieces to beat teams in multiple ways.Add it all up and it’s clear that Rivers, who turns 37 in December, has a much better group of talent around him to work with than in years past. Here’s a look at the changes in Rivers’s own production over time — as measured by his Yards Above Backup Quarterback (YABQ) — along with how his top skill-position teammates and defense have also evolved: CAR55CAR58WSH 23, CAR 17-5.3– LAR95.83.3SF3.12.86.11512 NE54NE50NE 43, KC 40-6.2– PHI71PHI66PHI 34, NYG 13-5.4– TB20.75.6CLE1.11.06.61394 MIN74MIN79MIN 27, ARI 17+0.9– DEN3.82.6ARI1.40.83.41418 200726.4L.

20pc workers can form trade union draft law says

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina chairs cabinet meeting at Bangladesh secretariat on 3 September 2018. Photo: PIDThe cabinet on Monday approved in principle the draft of Bangladesh Labour Act (Amendment) Bill, 2018 with more facilities for workers, reports UNB.The draft law also reduces the workers’ threshold to 20 per cent from the existing 30 per cent for forming trade unions.The approval was given at the weekly meeting of the Cabinet held at the secretariat with prime minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair.Under the proposed law, the percentage of workers’ participation required for forming trade unions at factories will be reduced to 20 per cent from the existing 30 per cent, said cabinet secretary Md Shafiul Alam.The draft bill has been prepared and updated following the observation of the International Labour Organisation (ILO).”The amended law will be a labour-friendly one,” said the cabinet secretary.”Under the proposed law, no child will be allowed to work in factories. If anybody employs child workers then he or she will have to pay a fine of Tk 5,000,” he added.In the draft bill, the punishment of workers for violating laws has been reduced by 50 per cent while new facilities included for them.Under the draft law, the inspection for factories and establishment department has been upgraded to the level of directorate.The post of the chief inspector of the department is now inspector general, while deputy director general is additional inspector general, and the post of labour director has been upgraded to the rank of director general, Shafiul Alam said.Under the proposed law, he said, mentally and physically-challenged labourers cannot be employed in any risky works.According to section 47 of the draft, if any female worker gives birth to a baby before informing the authorities, she will get an 8-week leave within 3 days after informing the authorities. If the factory authorities do not allow her to go on leave, they will be fined Tk 25,000.Besides, if any worker does his or her duty during festival, he or she will get a two-day leave and wage for two days after the festival.Both owners and workers will be sentenced to one year jail with a fine of Tk 10,000 for misconduct, which was two years in the previous law.Section-195 of the draft law will be applicable for factory owners and section-196 for labourers and workers.In the draft law, the punishment for enforcing strike illegally has been reduced to six months from one year.In case of natural death, the family of the worker concerned will get Tk 200,000 as compensation, which was Tk100,000 in the previous law, and in the case of injury, they will get Tk 250,000, which is now Tk 125,000.last_img read more

Skull analysis of Qingmenodus offers insight into creatures between prelobed fish and

first_imgQingmendous, a 409 million-year-old predatory fish provides unique insights into early the evolution of modern lobe-finned fishes. Credit: Life restoration drawn by Brian Choo (Flinders University, Australia) (Phys.org)—A team of researchers working at the Chinese Academy of Sciences has uncovered new characteristics of Qingmenodus, an Onychodont that lived during the time between fish without lobed fins and tetrapods. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the team describes their study of the fish and discuss its possible place in the evolutionary history of the creatures that eventually made their way onto land. Onychodonts lived approximately 400 million years ago, which means their fossil remains are few and far between, and study of those that have been found has not always been very productive. Still, scientists have found evidence of very ancient primitive fish that did not have lobed fins and evidence of less primitive fish with fully formed lobed fins (necessary for the development of fins that could be used to initially walk about on land), but have not had much luck in finding fish samples that represent the time between these other two groups. This has led to lively debates among early life scholars regarding the evolutionary tree regarding all of the various fishes that eventually led to the ones that actually crawled out of the sea to become our true ancestors. Recently, however, a good sample was found, the remains of a 409 million year Qingmenodus—in China—and more importantly, it had a well-ossified skull. To get a good look at it, inside and out, the team used high-resolution tomography to capture images of the internal structures of the braincase, which allowed them to reconstruct the cranial endocast.The team reports that the brain structure of Qingmenodus was similar in some respects to lungfish (a modern fish that has lungs and lives in mud) and other osteolepiforms (prehistoric lobe-finned fish), it had other clear differences as well—the brain case was elongated and it had well-developed processus connectens, which the researchers suggest was closer in nature to coelacanths (prehistoric large bony fish with fleshy pectoral fins).The team suggests further study of the Qingmenodus sample, and others that have been found may help piece together the relationship between Onychodonts, other prehistoric fish and more specifically, those that eventually climbed out of the sea and slowly evolved into land dwelling creatures. © 2016 Phys.org Explore further Journal information: Science Advancescenter_img Oldest actinopterygian from China provides new evidence for origin of ray-finned fishes Citation: Skull analysis of Qingmenodus offers insight into creatures between pre-lobed fish and tetrapods (Update) (2016, June 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-06-skull-analysis-qingmendous-insight-creatures.html More information: J. Lu et al. A Devonian predatory fish provides insights into the early evolution of modern sarcopterygians, Science Advances (2016). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1600154AbstractCrown or modern sarcopterygians (coelacanths, lungfishes, and tetrapods) differ substantially from stem sarcopterygians, such as Guiyu and Psarolepis, and a lack of transitional fossil taxa limits our understanding of the origin of the crown group. The Onychodontiformes, an enigmatic Devonian predatory fish group, seems to have characteristics of both stem and crown sarcopterygians but is difficult to place because of insufficient anatomical information. We describe the new skull material of Qingmenodus, a Pragian (~409-million-year-old) onychodont from China, using high-resolution computed tomography to image internal structures of the braincase. In addition to its remarkable similarities with stem sarcopterygians in the ethmosphenoid portion, Qingmenodus exhibits coelacanth-like neurocranial features in the otic region. A phylogenetic analysis based on a revised data set unambiguously assigns onychodonts to crown sarcopterygians as stem coelacanths. Qingmenodus thus bridges the morphological gap between stem sarcopterygians and coelacanths and helps to illuminate the early evolution and diversification of crown sarcopterygians.

Sexual minorities march in Nepal to demand rights

first_imgKATMANDU, Nepal (AP) – About 1,000 gays, lesbians, transgender people and their supporters, many dressed in colorful clothes and holding banners, marched through Nepal’s capital on Thursday to celebrate and demand rights for their community, in what has become an annual festival.It was the fourth year the rally was held, with organizers saying the march through the streets of Katmandu was an opportunity for sexual minorities to come out in the open and educate the public. “This is the day when we gay people are able to come out in the open without any fear or shame to celebrate with our community,” said Bhumika Shrestha, one of the organizers of the rally.Nepal is considered a conservative nation. Most of its people are Hindu, and many still follow traditional beliefs. Most marriages are still arranged by parents, and extended families all live together. It was only after the fall of the monarchy and the election of a Constituent Assembly in 2008 that sexual minorities began to demand rights.“We are here to appeal to the general public so they stop all types of discrimination against us,” said Nisha Sharma, a rally participant. “We are your children, brothers and sisters, so please don’t despise us. Love us and treat us like your own.”Katmandu-based Blue Diamond Society has been campaigning for Nepal’s sexual minorities and demanding that the new constitution, which was being written by the assembly before it expired last year, include rights for them.The group has also been demanding that the government continue to issue citizenship certificates with the category “third gender” for people who do not wish to be identified as male or female.

Indonesian mayor orders curfew for women in Acehs capital

first_imgBANDA ACEH, Indonesia (AP) — The capital of Indonesia’s devout Aceh province has imposed a partial curfew for women that it says will reduce sexual violence but which critics say is discriminatory.Banda Aceh Mayor Illiza Sa’aduddin Djamal ordered venues including restaurants, sport centers, Internet cafes and tourist attractions to not serve women after 11 p.m. unless accompanied by their husbands or other male family members.

Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall The directive, dated June 4, also prohibits women from working in such establishments after 11 p.m.Aceh hews to fundamentalism more so than other areas in the Muslim-majority nation, and Indonesia’s secular central government granted it the right to implement a version of Shariah law in 2006 as part of a peace deal to end a separatist war. A religious police and court system have been established and the new restrictions on women are a further strengthening of Sharia in the province.Last year, Aceh lawmakers passed a law that punishes gay sex by public caning and subjects non-Muslims to strict interpretation of Sharia. People convicted of gambling, adultery and drinking alcohol already face caning, as do women wearing tight jeans and people who skip Friday prayers.Ninik Rahayu from the Indonesian Institute for Empowerment of Women and Children said Tuesday that the directive is discriminatory and contrary to Indonesia’s constitution. She said the policy shows the inability of the local government to provide adequate protection for residents.The directive also prohibits children from being at public places unaccompanied after 10 p.m.Djamal said employing women until late at night constitutes exploitation and makes them vulnerable to sexual harassment.
