presstv-‘uk decision to send syrians back, disgraceful’

The UK government has been using the European Union’s faulty laws to send Syrian refugees back to Eastern European countries where they were abused.Ian Rintoul, a member of the Refugee Action Coalition believes this is an “opportunistic” decision by Britain, adding that it is a “fundamental violation” of the asylum seekers’ human rights.“It is really a very disgraceful decision ... that the European countries ... force people back to places that we now know are very routinely mistreating people [and this] is really a disgraceful decision on Britain’s part. So I am hoping that legal action in Britain can actually prevent this from happening,” the activist told Press TV in an interview on Monday.He also noted the UK government is trying to use the Dublin regulations, which require the refuge

rick derringer pleads guilty to bringing a loaded gun on an airplane

Rock guitarist Rick Derringer has pleaded guilty and agreed to pay a $1,000 fine after stepping off a Delta Air Lines flight from Mexico with a loaded handgun in Atlanta's airport.Derringer told a federal air marshal he kept his gun with him on commercial airline flights 30 to 50 times a year, and never before had a problem carrying it through airport checkpoints, prosecutors said.TSA spokesman Mark Howell said earlier that the agency investigates such statements when it can, but there's no way to substantiate claims dating back years.In 2015, some U.S. Congress members said fake weapons, explosives and other contraband went unnoticed in 67 out of 70 tries -- about 96 percent of the time -- at TSA airport checkpoints.Derringer's plea this week involves a single charge: Carrying a Kel-Tec p

They found that the average annual rate of claims was 24 per 1,000 workers, said Laura Syron, a doctoral student in OSU's College of Public Health and Human Sciences and lead author of the study.

According to TMZ, the three men were not arrested, but were instead issued a summons to appear in court. However, since Meek is already on probation for a weapons and drug conviction, this latest charge could complicate things and result in a serious violation.The rapper has not yet publicly commented on the incident.

Odfjell’s terminal in Botlek. Photo: Odfjell SEWhile there have been some safety improvements at Dutch companies which deal with dangerous chemicals there are still many problems which need to be solved, the Dutch safety board OVV says in a new report.The report looked at changes made following the shut-down of the bulk chemical storage company Odfjell in Rotterdam port in 2012, after officials said it faced an ‘unmanaged safety situation’.The report concludes that ‘worthwhile improvements in safety management at high-risk companies’ have been made. However, the board is not yet convinced the sector operates appropriate and sustainable safety levels.‘Preventing long-term unsafe situations at high-risk companies requires a robust set of structural measures to limit the risks as much as reas

bravehearts founder calls on canberra catholic archbishop to resign

Bravehearts founder Hetty Johnson has called for Catholic Archbishop Christopher Prowse to resign, after revelations he moved a priest he'd stood down over inappropriately touching a child, next to two Canberra primary schools."If this is the man we're looking to in this region to protect children, then we're looking in the wrong direction," Ms Johnson said.
Catholic Archbishop Christopher Prowse says it was a mistake not to tell the principal of Malkara School about the past of the priest he moved in next door. "No one should have any faith within that establishment with their children's safety and wellbeing any longer. If that man was to live in that house for a nanosecond it would be too long, let alone two years. I think the archbishop needs to resign. He clearly doesn't get it and
