“The goal of Legacy10 is to encourage a change in the way we in the UK regard legacy giving, and make it the norm for people to leave at least 10% of their wealth to good causes.”It is in the process of registering as a charity with the purpose of encouraging legacy giving in the UK. It will not, however, collect or distribute funds.Figures compiled by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) show that the amount of legacy income reported by the 11,000 biggest charities in their most recent annual returns is £2.1 billion. This is a real terms increase of 3% on September 2010 but represents just 13.49% of all voluntary income received by these charities. There are over 11,000 charities in England and Wales with an annual income of over £500,000 which report their legacy income in their annual returns to the Charity Commission. 143 total views, 4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 Legacy10 from Roland Rudd on Vimeo. Business leaders Sir Richard Branson and Charles Dunstone and investment banker Jacob Rothschild have committed to give 10% of their estates to charity via their wills as part of the Legacy10 campaign which is launched today.The campaign was set up to encourage people to make the most of the inheritance tax breaks announced by the government in the last Budget. From April 2012, anyone who leaves at least 10% of their wealth to charity will have their inheritance tax bill reduced from 40% to 36%.As such it is targeting the 3% of individuals who die each year and are Inheritance Tax payersHowever, a Populus poll of over 2,000 people across the UK, commissioned by Legacy10, has found that over 80% were unaware of the impending changes to IHT, but that over 70% would now either make a legacy or consider doing so. One of the aims of Legacy10 will be to encourage that 70% to make a pledge: although 74% of Britons support a charity in their lifetime, only 7% of the UK population leave a gift to charity in their will.Rob Cope, director of Remember A Charity, said:“Anyone who leaves 10% of their estate to charity can reduce their inheritance tax bill by 10% from 6 April 2012.“But legacy giving isn’t just for business billiionaires. If we all left just a small amount to our favourite charities in our Will, we could make a big difference.”Peter Lewis, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, welcomed the campaign, saying: “This campaign incentivises those who are likely to have to pay IHT when they pass away to leave a legacy. Legacy10 raises the profile of legacy giving and ensures that many people will become aware of the option of leaving a charitable gift in their will. Making a generous, final gift to a favourite good cause can help you to leave the world a better place.”The Legacy10 campaign has been established by Roland Rudd, the founder of the financial communications company Finsbury.

A home in Sana’a destroyed by Saudi airstrike, killing an entire family, July 2017.Editor’s note: Since 2015 the Pentagon has provided refueling for Saudi planes that kill Yemeni civilians and fighters. It has also provided satellite information on what to target and “elite U.S. forces” to work with the Saudis. (Wall Street Journal, June 12) The immense humanitarian disaster this caused has brought criticism of the U.S. role. This Nov. 11, the Saudi-led coalition of Gulf monarchies — upon hearing that the U.S. would stop the refueling — has said the coalition will do it themselves.This is just the latest sign of problems between Washington and Riyad. Others include a scandal over the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post journalist and Saudi citizen killed Oct. 2 in the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul, which has been condemned by the Turkish government. The U.S. and Saudi Arabia still collaborate on economic and military maneuvers aimed against Iran.The article below, which first appeared in the Nov. 7 edition of the progressive German publication Junge Welt, gives more detail on the suffering Riyad continues to impose on the Yemeni people. Translation is by WW Managing Editor John Catalinotto.Nov. 7 — This week, as before, the war in Yemen is not on the agenda of the U.N. Security Council. At the internet portal Relief Web, an information service of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the war-torn country only makes it to sixth place on the “hit list” of international crises and disasters.According to UNICEF Regional Director Geert Cappelaere, Yemen is a “hell for children.” At a press conference of the U.N. Children’s Fund in Amman last Sunday, Cappelaere recalled the 7-year-old girl Amal Hussein, to whom the New York Times had previously dedicated a cover story. Amal died of malnutrition on Nov. 1.In the last days before her death, the child had been fed in an infirmary, but could no longer keep down any food. To make room for other patients, Amal was discharged from the clinic and her parents were advised to take her to an aid organization 15 kilometers away. But the parents brought the child home to a straw hut in a refugee camp. They had no money for the trip.Every year 30,000 children die because they do not get enough to eat; due to malnutrition they are also susceptible to diseases, said Cappelaere. There is not just one Amal in Yemen, “there are many thousands.”In Yemen, 1.8 million children suffer acute malnutrition and 400,000 face death daily. Forty percent of them live in the province of Hodeida and in neighbouring regions, where the war is raging at its worst. According to the UNICEF coordinator, only one hospital is still in operation there. The Al-Thawra hospital is less than two kilometers (1.24 miles) from the front.The city of Hodeida, in the west of the country on the Red Sea, is the only port for bringing relief supplies to Yemen. According to Cappelaere, up to 80 percent of the Yemeni population of around 25 million depend on this port. An attack on Hodeida, as planned for a long time by the Saudi-led war alliance, would stop all aid deliveries to the country’s war zones.Not only are the children suffering. Eight million people are dependent on emergency aid, according to the U.N. emergency aid program OCHA. This figure could quickly rise to 14 million if the war is not stopped soon. But a ceasefire would not be enough — Yemen would need a comprehensive aid program for reconstruction.People weakened by hunger also lack health care, sanitation and clean water. Since 2016, the number of cholera cases in Yemen has increased dramatically.According to OCHA, 3 million internally displaced people live mostly in poorly equipped camps. According to the U.N. refugee agency UNHCR, some 900,000 people have returned to their original homes despite being damaged or destroyed and uninhabitable.Yemen is regarded as the poorhouse of the Arab world. Hunger has been part of everyday life for decades, especially for the rural areas, which are home to around 80 percent of the population.Since 1990, the country has been at the lower end of the Human Development Index. The HDI assesses three central achievements of human existence: a long, healthy life; access to education; and a good standard of living. In the United Nations Report on Poverty, at the botto of the list are Yemen and African states. More than 20 percent of those under 25 years of age can neither read nor write, and more than 60 percent of the population live below the poverty line.Around 10,000 people have been killed since the beginning of the war in 2015 and around 40,000 injured. Attacks by the Saudi war alliance have repeatedly bombed civilian assemblies such as weddings, funerals, school trips and markets. Dozens of people — all civilians — were often killed on the spot.For more background on Yemen, see tinyurl.com/y7ea4hzl.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
News Organisation May 12, 2017 – Updated on May 15, 2017 Judges must speed investigations into crimes against French journalists abroad from left to right on the picture : Guy-André Kieffer, William Roguelon, Rémi Ochlik, Camille Lepage, Claude Verlon, Ghislaine Dupont, Edith Bouvier, Lucas Dolega FranceSyriaTunisiaCôte d’IvoireMaliCentral African RepublicUkraineEurope – Central AsiaMiddle East – North Africa Africa News June 7, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia Help by sharing this information News to go further Three years have gone by since photo-journalist Camille Lepage died in an ambush in the Central African Republic. But the justice system still has failed to reveal how and why she died. Hers is not the only case. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) demands that the French justice system do its utmost to pursue investigations of the killings and disappearances of French journalists. Impunity, a heavy burden for the journalists’ families, must no longer shield the criminals. FranceSyriaTunisiaCôte d’IvoireMaliCentral African RepublicUkraineEurope – Central AsiaMiddle East – North Africa Africa Receive email alerts News RSF_en Are resources – or political will – lacking to pursue investigations of the killing, wounding and disappearances of journalists? On May 12, three years will have passed since Camille Lepage was killed in the Central African Republic. Three years during which her family has been trying to learn the truth about what happened on a dirt road 150 km from Bouar in the country’s western region. Since then, and despite a strong pledge by President François Hollande to “shine the brightest light” on the case, the investigation has stalled. A formal legal request for information was sent to prosecution authorities in the Central African Republic in late 2014, but it rests unanswered.A second group of French investigators was sent in late January 2017 to the Central African Republic, but was restricted to Bangui. The official reason is concern for security. However, United Nations troops are deployed in Bouar, on a mission that includes facilitating humanitarian access and investigations of human rights-related issues.“The most difficult thing is not knowing exactly what happened that day,” said Maryvonne Lepage, Camille’s mother. “I would like to know which group bears the responsibility for my daughter’s death, that the guilty parties are at least identified. The investigators’ mission is two years late, based on the announced schedule, and nothing has been set up to allow them to reach the scene. We are waiting impatiently for another hearing, in order to speak to the judge about the case.” Political interference The Lepage case is unfortunately not the only pending for years in French courts. Investigation into the murder in northern Mali of RFI journalists Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon has come up against political considerations. The most serious involves military secrecy, which limits access to necessary documents by civil parties, including RSF, and the judge. Unexpected recent developments have revived the case and pointed toward new leads. These were revealed last January by a documentary “Otage d’Etat,” (Government Hostage) on the French TV channel France2. But this investigation received no help from French, Malian or Nigerian authorities. On the contrary, the journalists revealed that some witnesses, even in France, have been threatened, and have changed their minds about testifying. In addition, the number of potential instigators and perpetrators of the double murder that are still alive, has been greatly reduced by the French Army anti-terrorist operations in Mali. “We are happy that there has been progress in the investigation, thanks to new elements put forward by the documentary,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, head of the RSF Africa desk. “However, we regret that these breakthroughs were not a result of official investigations. We are waiting for more cooperation from French authorities in response to requests by the investigating judge. We hope that a hearing before the judge scheduled in June will allow us to learn more about progress in the investigation.” In another case from Africa, the 2004 disappearance of French-Canadian journalist Guy-André Kieffer remains unsolved after more than 13 years. Kieffer was reporting on the Ivory Coast cacao industry, which is vital to the government – and to part of the country’s elite. An industry fraught with influence-peddling. A French judge sent a formal legal information request to Ivory Coast in early 2015, but has still not received a response. The judge, for his part, has not travelled to the scene since he was nominated. He announced that he would be visiting the Ivory Coast minister of justice in April, but there has been no follow-through as of now. The possibilities of solving the case of Kieffer’s disappearance are dwindling. One heavy blow was the September 2016 death of the main witness, Michel Legré, brother-in-law of the first lady during the relevant time, Simone Gbagbo. Kieffer had an appointment with him on the day he disappeared. In this case as well, President Hollande in 2014 and 2015 and Prime Minister Manuel Valls in 2016 assured RSF that the French government was determined to see that justice was done in the case. Despites these promises, which were echoed by the Ivory Coast president, it still seems impossible, 13 years later, to bring the killers and their backers to justice. Kieffer was a seasoned journalist with deep experience in reporting on sensitive topics. “Let the Guy-André Kieffer case go; we will never know what happened,” a French diplomat told RSF in 2014, on a not-for-attribution basis. “RSF has the impression that this case is not a priority for the French and Ivory Coast justice systems,” Sophie Busson, head of Advocacy for RSF. “This is very disappointing. We call on French authorities to turn words into deeds and facilitate progress in this case, which they regularly assure us they are pursuing. We hope that the French judge will travel to Ivory Coast as soon as possible in order to hold hearings with witnesses whom he has identified.” Ending arbitrary treatment Time is of the essence. The longer an investigation takes, the greater the temptation to shut it down – this is especially so in complicated cases, linked to civil conflicts, with guilty parties located abroad, in countries that often don’t cooperate with French investigations, due to lack of resources or political will. However, beyond the possible identification and conviction of those directly responsible, bringing justice in these types of cases also demands establishing historical truth, and identifying moral responsibilities of groups and leaders implicated in attacks on journalists, thereby ending arbitrary actions and impunity. William Roguelon was gravely wounded in a mortar attack in the Sloviansk region of eastern Ukraine. Two of his colleagues, Andrea Rochelli of Italy and Andrei Mironov of Russia, were killed. The Bordeaux court was assigned the case in September 2014, but did not show great involvement.The court, according to Roguelon, seemed to take the view that he had been in the wrong place at the wrong time, that he knew the risks, and that he had in the end survived. The Italian judicial system’s investigation into this case has made a lot of progress but the French probe seems to have ground to a halt even if the investigating judge has said he does not want to close the case. The French and Italian judicial authorities need to work closely together, pooling the findings of the investigations so far conducted in order to move ahead more quickly and effectively, each country mobilizing its own resources. Lucas Dolega, a French-German photographer, died in March 2011 of wounds sustained from a direct hit by a tear-gas grenade fired by Tunisian police. He was covering a demonstration in Tunis during the Arab Spring. Clearly identified as a professional journalist, he was with a group of colleagues.A formal legal request for information sent by a French judge did receive a response in Tunisia. Witnesses were interviewed, but the investigators came up against contradictory testimony from two police commanders. The Tunisian judge did not visit police offices to examine the files of police who were present during the demonstration. Meanwhile, the French judge seemed satisfied with the Tunisian report – which was, to say the least, incomplete – and dismissed the case, without traveling to Tunis himself. The means exist The obstacles encountered are even less acceptable given that some cases do receive the attention they deserve, as a result of the political climate that prevailed when they began. One telling example is the judicial investigation opened in France in 2013 by the war crimes and crimes against humanity unit for “second-degree murder” of freelance journalist Rémi Ochlik and “attempted murder” of freelance journalist Edith Bouvier. At the time, the French government was strongly opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The journalists were victims of an airstrike that targeted the press centre in Homs. Though the on-going conflict has made the investigation difficult, the special attention given the matter has ensured that the investigating judge has the resources necessary to follow all leads and to keep up the pressure on all those involved. RSF, a civil party in the case, hopes that the investigation will remain active and that all testimony from identified witnesses can be taken as soon as possible. RSF encourages the next minister of justice, who will be appointed in the next few days, to support cooperation with justice institutions of the countries involved in these cases. Where possible, French embassies may efficiently furnish material assistance to local investigations in progress. France, has an important role to play at the international level in the fight against impunity. These investigations also underline the fundamental role that journalists play as messengers of democratic values. Those who have been killed, wounded or have disappeared were precisely carrying out their mission of reporting the truth. To not uncover the circumstances behind what happened to them amounts to denying their commitment to serve the public. Accordingly, RSF has launched a campaign at the United Nations for appointment of a Special Representative of the Secretary-General for the safety of journalists. The aim is to put in place a specific mechanism for applying international law. This will allow the carrying out of numerous UN resolutions on the protection of journalists, and the fight against impunity. All too often, these have gone unfulfilled. Over the past five years alone, RSF has registered 388 journalists killed worldwide in connection with their work.

Further, it is alleged that Siddique Kappan is the Office Secretary of Popular Front of India (PFI), and that it was revealed during investigation that he along with other PFI activists and their student wing leaders were going to Hathras under “the garb of journalism” with a very “determined design to create a caste divide and disturb law and order situation”. UP Government states that Kappan was “using a journalist cover by showing identity card of a Kerala based newspaper named as ‘Tejas’ which was closed in 2018″.”His flat mate who is also a member of PFI and its various wings denied access. Finally, armed with search warrants, when the premises was searched by the police, further incriminating material has been recovered…”- UP Tells Supreme CourtThe UP Government further stated that it has been “falsely alleged” that neither the family members nor the lawyers have been allowed access to Kappan & A completely false narrative is being made that he is not being permitted to talk to relatives or lawyers.”At the outset, it is stated that no family member of the accused has approached the jail authorities till date for meeting the accused It is further stated that no lawyer has ever approached the jail authorities with a Vakalatnama to be signed by the accused Siddique Kappan till date,” the affidavit states.It is stated that the car of the accused was siezed on October 5 and it was found that the passengers were carrying incriminating pamphlets. “…..got much agitated and abusive and behaved in suspicious manner speaking words like “die or kill, we will not give up. Thus, in order to prevent the commission of offence the police official of P.S Manth arrested the occupants of the car/ Accused including Sidhique Kappan at the Toll Plaza Manth, under Section 151/107/116 of Cr.P.C.”It is stated that during the investigation conducted so far, the evidence of the accused having links with banned organizations has emerged. Mobile phones, Laptop, Pamphlets having headlines of “Justice for Hathras Victim” etc. were duly seized and information of such arrest was duly conveyed to the relatives, stated the affidavit.Kappan, a freelance journalist reporting for Malayalam portals, was arrested by the UP police on October 5 along with three others in an FIR registered for alleged criminal conspiracy to create societal unrest in the wake of Hathras incident. The stringent provisions of anti-terror legislation Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and sedition were invoked against Kappan and others. A local court in Mathura remanded them to custody.Following his arrest, the Kerala Union of Working Journalists(KUWJ) filed a habeas corpus petition in the Supreme Court challenging Kappan’s custody. The KUWJ argued that the arrest was illegal and unconstitutional.Today, when the issue came up for hearing, the bench led by Chief Justice SA Bobde recorded the statement of the Solicitor General, who appeared for the State of Uttar Pradesh, that there was no objection to Kerala journalist Siddiqque Kappan meeting a lawyer while in jail to sign a vakalatnama.”There was no objection and there is no objection,” said the Law officer.SG Tushar Mehta denied the allegations of the petitioner that Kappan was denied access to a lawyer.During the brief hearing on Friday, CJI SA Bobde also remarked that he was unhappy with the inaccurate reporting that the Court had refused relief in the case.On October 12, a bench lead by the Chief Justice of India expressed disinclination to entertain the petition and suggested to Sibal(who was appearing for KUWJ) that the petitioner should approach the High Court.Last week, the KUWJ filed an interim application in the habeas petition seeking permission for regular VC meetings of Kappan with his family members and lawyers after the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Mathura, refused such permission.Next Story
