Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday ordered the transfer of an additional district magistrate from Indore for allegedly mishandling a disabled man and ordered officials to deal sensitively with physically disabled people, said an official.

The incident occurred on Tuesday during a public hearing at the Indore Collector’s office where the man had gone to dispatch his request to transfer an ancestral property to his name.

He managed to reach the first floor of the tax collector’s office and asked the guards to let him into the room where the public hearing was taking place, but they refused and asked him to show the registration form, which caused an argument.

The disabled man also shouted at them for not being given a wheelchair, after which staff arranged one for him and took him to the room where Additional District Magistrate (ADM) Pavan Jain was conducting the public hearing weekly, sources said.

The man told his problem to Jain, but when the latter allegedly failed to give him the desired attention, the man banged a folder of documents on the table and threw his cell phone, part of which hit the ADM who got angry.

The manager then allegedly yelled at the man and later a member of the security staff also slapped him, sources said, adding that he was then taken out of the collector’s office and asked to leave.

Chouhan, in a review meeting with district officials, took serious note of the incident and ordered Jain’s transfer to Bhopal, a public relations department official said. The CM also ordered officials to deal sensitively with people with disabilities, the official said.

An investigation into allegations that Communist China operates unofficial overseas police stations in Canada is underway, officials said.

During his testimony before the Canada-China parliamentary committee on September 4, Weldon Epp, director general of the North Asia and Oceania Bureau of Global Affairs Canada, said that if the allegations turn out to be true, the activity “would not fall within any legitimate police-to-police relationship”. liaison role” between the two countries, and that Ottawa would take “serious steps” with Beijing.

“The activity that is alleged would be entirely illegal, totally inappropriate and would be subject to very serious representations and diplomatic follow-up,” Epp said.

Reports of China’s expansion of “overseas police stations” came to public attention after a Spain-based human rights NGO Save Defenders released its investigative report last month, titled “110 Overseas: Chinese transnational police have gone wild.

At the time of publication, the report identified 54 overseas Chinese police stations in 30 countries, including three in Toronto. The police stations are all under the jurisdiction of two local police departments in China: the Fuzhou Public Security Bureau in Fuzhou City, Fujian Province, and Qingtian County Police in Zhejiang Province, according to The report.

Peter Dahlin, founder and director of Safeguard Defenders and co-author of the report, previously told The Epoch Times that in addition to the three stations in Toronto, two in Markham and one in Scarborough, whose locations were published in a ‘Chinese state…there are likely other unofficial Chinese police stations that either exist or are being established in Canada, although they have yet to be discovered.

Dahlin said that during the investigation, his team came across a press release issued by Beijing on July 5, 2018, indicating that 10 other provinces are expected to launch similar operations on a pilot basis.

Epp, who served as Canada’s consulate general in Shanghai from 2015 to 2019, said there is no bilateral treaty with China that would allow Chinese police to reside in Canada and open their police stations on the Canadian soil.

“Violation of our sovereignty”

During questioning, Conservative MP and foreign affairs spokesman Michael Chong asked Epp if Global Affairs had made representations to the Chinese regime “that it is unacceptable” that the CCP has allegedly established police stations, which he said would be used to “intimidate”. Canadians and even force them to return to China.

Epp said his department was working with partner agencies to determine “if there is a basis for the allegations.”

“I can tell you that we are working closely with partners to understand whether these media reports are fact-based,” Epp said, adding that the department routinely raises concerns with senior levels in Ottawa and Beijing. regarding “the growing evidence of increasing foreign interference”. “from China.

Epp was referring to a series of reports issued by the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians to federal agencies. He said evidence from these reports suggests that the biggest source of foreign interference in Canada by foreign state actors “comes from the PRC.” [People’s Republic of China] source.”

Chong also asked if Global Affairs was investigating whether diplomats accredited to the Chinese Embassy and other missions in Canada were involved in the alleged police stations and whether the government had sent officials to verify the three published locations. in Chinese state media.

“They’re not just illegal, they’re a violation of our sovereignty, a violation of international law, and a violation of every diplomatic standard that exists,” Chong said.

“Without trying to frustrate the line of questioning, I just want to emphasize that the investigative role that is essential here, before we take any significant and anticipated diplomatic action in response, is quite crucial,” Epp replied.

Tory MP Raquel Dancho asked who Global Affairs was working with during the investigation, to which Epp replied that it was not appropriate for him to discuss operational details on camera.

“Visas must be revoked”

Glen Linder, director general of social and temporary migration at Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), also testified at the committee meeting, where Chong asked him if IRCC had carried out a status check for people working in the alleged police. stations.

“Is there an investigation going on right now to determine their immigration status? Because if these people came here from the People’s Republic of China under false pretenses, these visas should be revoked,” Chong said.

“As my colleague from Global Affairs mentioned, [we are] take the issues very seriously and there are discussions with the partners,” Linder replied.

Liberal MP Jean Yip, who represents the riding of Scarborough-Agincourt in Ontario, stressed the importance of reassuring Canadians, especially those residing in Scarborough and Markham where the alleged unofficial police stations are located. She asked Epp how an investigation would be conducted if a voter was harassed, intimidated or coerced by the alleged centers.

“What can they do? Just go to the local police?” she said.

“We encourage individuals not only to inform Global Affairs, so that we can undertake appropriate communications with [the] Chinese government, but that they should report them to the police,” Epp said.

NDP MP Heather McPherson said the suggestion for citizens to contact Global Affairs was ‘unnecessary’ given that after years of working in the international development sector, she has yet to find a way to contact Global Affairs itself. She asked if the federal department interacted with local police departments and if the police were trained to deal with such requests.

“Information and intelligence sharing is done through the RCMP with local police forces, but Global Affairs Canada works closely with the RCMP, with CSIS and other intelligence parties,” said Epp said. He added that his department shares information on foreign interference with these partners.

“In terms of their specific operational training … that goes beyond my expertise in how police services will honor that information and translate it into practice. [training],” he said.

“There is a lot of discussion about how to reduce the distance between Canadians who are going through this and who know how to deal with it,” he added. “It’s very important, but I just want to stress that the operational manager must always be the police. It’s not enough, but it’s the first [step].”

Asked by Dancho if Global Affairs will make a public announcement if the allegations prove true, Epp said he would defer to the RCMP to make the decision. When pressed to provide a timetable for the completion of the investigation, he said he was unable to do so.

“Nothing to deter them”

Aileen Calverley, co-founder and administrator of human rights group Hong Kong Watch, said it was “very shocking” to learn of the alleged unofficial police centers established by the Chinese regime.

“They do it openly because there is no legislation, there is nothing to deter them, nothing to punish them,” Calverley told the committee, adding that the stations are meant to intimidate those who speak out. the system of government.

“They can intimidate people like us. I have lived in Canada for many decades – now I am scared,” she said.

Calverley proposed that Canada put in place new legislation and ensure that those affected are registered as foreign agents.

In response to Calverley’s testimony, Senator Leo Housakos took to Twitter later that night, praising her for “exposing the Chinese communist regime.”

“It is high time that members of both Houses support my legislation on the register of foreign agents, Bill #S237. It’s time to really tackle foreign interference and intimidation on Canadian soil,” he said.

Corruption: Yobe government official confiscates 11 government properties

Judge Fadima Murtala Aminu of the Federal High Court sitting in Damaturu, Yobe State, ordered the provisional confiscation of eleven land properties, in the metropolis of Damaturu, belonging to Alhaji Idris Yahaya, Auditor General of all areas of local government, LGA, of Yobe State.

She gave the order on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, following an ex parte request filed by the Maiduguri Area Command of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, requesting interim confiscation of assets.

EFCC lawyer Mukhtar Ali Ahmed told the court that Yahaya owned land holdings suspected to be proceeds of crime, due to alleged criminal misappropriation of public funds, abuse of power and money laundering reported to the Commission.

A petitioner alleged that the suspect enriched himself by putting ghost workers on the payroll of Yobe State LGAs and acquired land holdings with the proceeds of crime.

“The investigation conducted by the EFCC showed that the suspect embezzled huge sums of money from Yobe LGA coffers and illegally acquired the following properties:

Farsawa Plaza opposite First Bank of Nigeria Limited, along Gashua Road, Damaturu, a mega plaza opposite the Central Bank of Nigeria Complex, located along Gujba Road, Damaturu. The others are: 20 self-contained units, four self-contained single room units and two self-contained room and apartment units, located opposite the Central Bank of Nigeria complex along Gujba Road, Damaturu.

Also identified by the Commission are: four bedroom units and a self-contained apartment, a fenced plot, three bedroom apartments and a BB shopping complex, all located opposite the Central Bank of Nigeria complex along the road of Gujba, in Damaturu. The rest are properties located at plot number C300 at 440 Housing Estate, Gujba road and BB Lounge, next to Nishadi Kilishi, along Maiduguri road, Damaturu, Yobe State.

Ahmed prayed for the court to order interim forfeiture of assets from the federal government and also argued that the suspect was living beyond his means as a public servant.

Therefore, Judge Aminu granted the request and ordered the provisional confiscation of the eleven landholdings. She also ordered the publication of the order in any national newspaper, for the respondent or anyone with legal rights to the properties to appear in court, “to show cause within 14 days, why a final order confiscation should not be issued”.

Clark County, Nevada, Administrator Robert Telles was charged on Tuesday with the murder of journalist Jeff German, who published several articles about the officer.

Tel allegedly stabbed the 69-year-old journalist, who was found dead outside his home in Las Vegas, Nevada, last September.

The Democratic politician, with a 40-year career in journalism, had reported the investigation in the Las Vegas Review-Journal to Tales, shortly before the Democratic politician lost the primary last June.

The journalist published that there had been complaints of intimidation within Telles’ office and that the politician had had an emotional affair with a subordinate.

Tel, elected in 2018 and whose mandate expires on December 31, ridiculed German’s articles on the social network.

Police arrested Tails hours after issuing a search warrant at his home and confiscating the officer’s vehicles.

The court ruled that the officer would be held in custody without bail. If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of life in prison.

After the hearing, District Attorney Steve Wolfson told KTNV television that his team had sought an order to remove Telles from his position as public trustee.

He pointed out that the Telles still technically hold the office of Clark County administrator. “He is unable to do his job” and that is why the prosecution wants to dismiss him.
