Women have fled to Malaysia for trying to have lesbian sex


Two women who were found guilty of having sex were staged in the northeastern conservative of Malaysia in Terengganu, in the first punishment of its kind.

The two women, aged 22 to 32, were boxed six times each in the Terengganu sharia tribune shortly after 10 am, after the sentence was read.

The flogging was carried out in the classroom and was tested by up to 100 people, including the public.

While women in Malaysia have been staged for sexual offenses in the past, such as adultery, rights activists say this is the first time two women have been murdered for trying to have sex.

"The punishment was shocking and it was a show", Thilaga Sulathireh, an activist of the Malaysian rights group Justice for Sisters, who was in court on Monday, told the Guardian: "To all intents and purposes it was a public demonstration ".

"This case shows a regression for human rights," he said, "Not just for LGBT people but for all people, because corporal punishment affects all people."

The Justice for Sisters activist said the group was worried that the case would constitute a dangerous precedent for the increased surveillance of morality and sexual identities in Malaysia.

In April, Sharia forces in Terengganu identified the two women attempting to perform sexual acts on a car.

The two women were fined by the sharia court on 12 August, after they pleaded guilty to committing musahaqah or sexual relations between women.

The judges ordered to be hoarded six times and fined 3300 Malaysian Ringgits (£ 619).

According to Malay law, each state has the power to enact laws based on sharia guidelines.

The rights groups had previously urged the Malaysian government to defer the case, which they claimed was torture under international human rights law.

The verdict, said Graeme Reid, director of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender programs of Human Rights Watch, was "the last blow to the Malaysian LGBT community, which had hoped for better protection under the new government".

"This accusation and punishment," he said in a statement on August 21, "will only feed the recent wave of homophobia and transphobia in Malaysia."


Burma: Reuters journalists sentenced to seven years in prison


Yangon – Two Reuters journalists accused of "undermining the state secret" for investigating a Rohingya Muslim massacre by the army in Burma were sentenced to seven years in prison on Monday after a trial that contaminated a additionally the image of the Nobel Peace Prize Aung San Suu Kyi.

"Having both violated the state secret, they are sentenced to seven years in prison eachJudge Ye Lwin said in front of a court full of journalists and diplomats.

"We continue to ask for their release", Knut Ostby, a representative of the United Nations in Burma, reacted shortly after the verdict.

Wa Lone, 32, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 28, in preventive detention since December 2017, were serving a sentence of 14 years in prison at the end of this highly controversial trial in a country where the independence of the judiciary is subject to bail.

"The government can imprison us … but do not close people's eyes and earsKyaw Soe Oo told the crowd of journalists in the courtroom before being pushed into a prison in the direction of the prison and his wife burst into tears over the verdict.

This condemnation is a blow to freedom of the press, mistreated in Burma despite the hopes aroused by the arrival of Aung San Suu Kyi in 2016.

In addition to the UN, international reactions have not been slow to come.

"These two admirable journalists spent almost nine months in jail with invented charges to silence and intimidate the press.", Reuters replied in a statement.

"These two brave journalists have gathered evidence that the army had committed mass crimes against Rohingya civilians"That"the Burmese authorities have tried to cover up", he criticized the NGO Fortify Rights.

The two Burmese journalists of the press agency are accused of having obtained documents relating to the operations of the Burmese security forces in the state of Rakhine, a region of northwestern Burma, theater of the Rohingya drama.

They were investigating a massacre of members of the Muslim minority in the village of Inn Dinn. A few days after their arrest, the army admitted that soldiers and villagers killed the Rohingya cold-blooded prisoners on September 2, 2017, and seven soldiers were sentenced to ten years in prison for the massacre .

– Great voltage background –

This verdict comes in a context of great tension between Burma and the international community: last Monday the UN investigators published a report that evokes a "genocide"Rohingya and directly accusing the army, but also the silence of Aung San Suu Kyi, head of the civil government since 2016.

And Tuesday, the question of the pursuit of the Burmese army in international justice was discussed in the UN Security Council.

On Saturday in Yangon, about 100 protesters called for the release of the two journalists in the name of freedom of the press.

In 2017, over 700,000 Rohingya fled to Bangladesh in the face of the violence of the Burmese armed forces and Buddhist militias, a repression approved by the UN.ethnic cleansing"and even now"genocide".

The verdict was closely followed by the international community, which had called for the release of the two reporters from Brussels to Washington.

Despite the pressure, justice has always kept the accusation. If the documents held by journalists "they found themselves in the hands of the terrorists, they could have fomented the attacks more easily", Prosecutor Kyaw Min Aung secured his requisitions on August 20th.

RPL. "Zenith" – "Spartacus" – 0: 0. To judge Moskaliev

Judge Moskalyov

Dmitry Egorov

Judge based on the concepts. As Moskalov did to deal with Zenit and Spartak

Egorov believes there is nothing to show the referee.


Judging by the comments, you are agitated by the topic of collision Dziuba is gigot. Once again I will fix the main points of the episode, whose study is very difficult for some.

Dziuba broke the Zhigo. Is he banned for 6 games?

No it is not.

1. Zhigo himself delayed the transfer, forcing Dzyuba to join the battle. There are many of these episodes in every game.
2. Artyom wines in serious Zhigo injuries is minimal. The profound causes of contactless rupture of cruciate ligament physicians have not yet been determined. After all, the gate can also manifest itself when you stand still.
3. No further contribution to the trauma Akinfeev 7 years ago he contributed Welliton, which was disqualified for 6 games. That incident showed that if big clubs really want, thanks to a competent PR campaign, they can remove any competitor from the game.

And the respect for "Spartacus" and the current Russian football was that nobody wanted to make Dziubu guilty. Strange or embarrassing decisions have been left in the past.

The brigade Moskalyova – one of the youngest in Russia. Today, the main referee of the match, "Spartak" – "Zenith" is only 32 years old. And if he had previously served mostly with a faded poster, he had two games this season – until yesterday's game he worked on the game "Locomotive" with "Spartacus".
And if the game in Cherkizovo was not enough, the questions about his work would not be enough, so on Sunday the experts launched a critical hurricane. The referee is changed in two for the cola and highlights several serious errors. However, each of the statements seems to be extracted from the context and goes against both the general structure of the lot, and with the recommendations expressed by the head of the judiciary Alexander Egorov.

Take, for example, the start of the game.

On the one hand, in the first half hour the players of both teams committed several fouls in the center of the field, some of which could be punished with yellow. On the other hand, the judge chose a rather high threshold of eligibility and followed him during the match, assessing equally the incidents involving Zenit and Spartak.

This is not a penalty? The two most controversial moments of the "Zenith" – "Spartacus" match

Judge Moskalov has repeatedly been the center of attention in St. Petersburg. Two of his decisions have caused particularly heated controversy.

The next episode – a penalty, not named after the collision Ivanovic with the Pedro Roshey. On the one hand, the Serbian has stepped forward at the feet of the Brazilian. On the other – zenitovets did not react to the ball, did not move in the direction of Spartacus and trampled on the leg when Roscha took a long walk. Something similar that we saw at the contact Ari is Promes in Krasnodar, so that Moskalyov's decision seems methodical.
The next was a penalty in the gates of "Spartacus".

On one side Fernando I really have an open tip in my head Driussi. On the other hand, the Brazilian version itself has the right to life: "What a penalty !? At the beginning I touched the ball and only after seeing the opponent." Given an unassigned penalty in the door of "Zenith", Moskalev interpreted the episode not in reality, but in terms of, thereby saving the game from the scandal and talking about partiality.

I have not received a second yellow and short stories

After setting a high threshold for the fight, Moskalyov gave the players the chance to play and saved both teams from playing in unequal compositions. So, he did not remove the hard dirt Erokhine Rasskazov, but it remained also cold to the provocations Paredes, who at one point kicked his fists Glushakova. Moskalyov could also give 2-3 red cards, tearing them out of the general context, but integrally any formal decision could break the game.

As a result, every player who went to the press did not talk about mistakes, but that the meeting was difficult for the referees, and the judges, if they were wrong, did it in a uniform way, without suspicion. And in these words is the main result of a young and talented brigade, survived in the brutal dismantling of "Zenith" and "Spartacus". If now Moskalova with the assistants will not be "killed", in the future Russia will be able to get a really strong and confident team, for which there are no authorities in the football world.

A "corneal pen" to repair eye damage


$ 1.1 million in grants is the amount received from the Save Sight Institute in Sydney, Australia, from the Australian Department of Health and Research. An amount paid on August 8 by the NSW Medical Devices Fund to encourage the development and marketing of a corneal pen.

This is the first time such a device is used in the medical industry.

Called iFix, this pen from a 3D print was developed by Professor Gerard Sutton and his team.

How does it work? With a special ink that colors and treats eye injuries. This "bionic" ink allows the corneal cells to regenerate and create a biological barrier against infections. Professor Sutton's research showed that iFix can relieve patient pain and reduce recovery times.

"The iFix pen is part of a global bioengineering project of the cornea and, with the support of The Big Idea (award won by the team last year, ed) and of the Medical Device Fund, we hope to be able to can develop a 3D bioengineering cornea in 5-10 years, "said the professor.

Animal tests are already under way and the researchers want to start testing the men next year.
