The order passed by Justice AS Supehia states, “The applicant in the present application has made a specific averment that he has number of followers all over the world and in India. Considering the said averment, it would not be apposite to release the applicant on bail in light of the prevailing situation of Covid 2019, since there is a strong possibility that on release of the applicant, his thousands of followers will congregate to meet him, which will aggravate the distressing situation.” Asaram, presently 84, is lodged in Jodhpur’s Central Jail in connection to a sexual assault case. He is presently being tried by a court in Gandhinagar, and has already been sentenced to life imprisonment by a Jodhpur court earlier, in connection to another rape case. He had moved the High Court stating that given his age and various other ailments, he would be more vulnerable to the COVID-19 pendamic prevailing in the State. His counsel also relied on the Supreme Court’s ruling in Re: Contagion of COVID-19 Virus in Prisons to state that his would be a fit case for grant of temporary bail, for de-congestion of prisons. Pertinently, he had moved the High Court on the same grounds in March this year. However the Court had refused to grant him relief, considering the seriousness of offences alleged against him. Highlighting the same, APP Shruti Pathak for the State, submitted that no new ground had been averred in the instant application for temporary bail. She further submitted that the jail authorities in Rajasthan were taking ample precautions so that there is no spread of Covid 2019 amongst the inmates. “No new ground has been raised by the applicant seeking indulgence of this Court in releasing him on temporary bail,” the Court observed and rejected the application. On an earlier occasion, the Supreme Court had rejected his regular bail application on medical grounds, noting that the matter wasn’t as serious, requiring special medical procedures.

first_imgCheltenham and Punchestown Festival winner Killultagh Vic gets the chance to demonstate his capabilities over fences when contesting the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Beginners Chase at Fairyhouse. Not surprisingly, given he began life in the point-to-point fields, the six-year-old is viewed as one of this season’s most exciting prospects for staying novice chases. Willie Mullins’ charge certainly couldn’t be faulted on the score of consistency in his hurdling days, with his three wins including the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys’ Hurdle at Cheltenham and the three-mile Grade One at Punchestown. Ruby Walsh takes the reins on Killultagh Vic for just the third time competitively in the 11.30am curtain-raiser and while two miles might be on the sharp side, his class should see him through. This event is also notable as Ferdy Murphy’s son Barry begins in the training ranks with the Mikey Fogarty-partnered Robin Des People. Half-an-hour later Mullins could strike again with Roi Des Francs in the Promote Your Business At Fairyhouse In 2016 Beginners Chase. Gigginstown House Stud’s retained rider Bryan Cooper prefers Roi Des Francs over Sub Lieutenant in the three-mile contest. Troytown runner-up, Georges Conn, and the long-absent graded hurdler, Our Vinnie, are others to catch the eye. Ruby Walsh will pull on the Hurricane Fly silks of George Creighton when French-import Allblak Des Places starts off in the Book Online At fairyhouse.ie 3-y-o Maiden Hurdle. The Full Of Gold gelding is likely to make his presence felt after a couple of placed efforts in France.

Feds urged auditors to refocus Aboriginal jobs program review documents show

first_imgOTTAWA – Federal officials asked the auditor general earlier this year to adjust the scope of his review of a key Indigenous skills training program, fearful the audit would miss its mark.Michael Ferguson’s teams are focused on how effective two Indigenous employment programs are at helping people find work — a measure that Employment and Social Development Canada argued takes too narrow a view.In a July 14 letter sent to the lead auditor, a department official argued a change in focus was needed because zeroing in on whether participants got jobs “may not fully consider the objectives of the Indigenous labour market programs.”The letter urged Ferguson’s team to change its audit plan to “reflect the objective of continuous growth and learning,” reads the letter obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.The documents say the department expected to get its first look at the preliminary report this week.A spokesman for Ferguson said the letter is part of regular discussions about an audit’s design to make sure the findings and recommendations are useful for the government.“Ultimately, in accordance with our regular audit process, we obtain acknowledgment of the suitability of the criteria used in each audit from the audited entity’s management,” Vincent Frigon said in an email.Neither Frigon nor the department would say what happened after the concerns were raised, citing confidentiality until the audit is public.Ferguson’s auditors are looking at how the department managed, delivered, and monitored programs, but also how it has reported results since April 2010, almost a year after the Aboriginal skills and employment training strategy and the Skills and Partnership Fund were launched.The department says that over the last seven years, both programs have helped over 350,000 Indigenous people, with almost 133,000 landing a job and more than 60,000 going back to school.The strategy is set to expire in the coming months and the Liberals have promised to have a new program in place by April, a few weeks before Ferguson’s review is expected to come out in May.Indigenous and non-Indigenous groups, such as schools, have also argued that a new jobs strategy should provide more money for groups delivering training programs and focus on the fast-growing cohort of Indigenous youth.A key request from Indigenous groups is to shift the focus to building employment skills, including for those already in the workforce, rather than measuring success by whether someone in the program lands a job.The government expects that over the next decade, about 400,000 young Aboriginals will join the workforce, adding to the almost 900,000 already of working age.last_img read more
