UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 29, 2012
A further number of relief workers who were arrested while helping victims of the recent earthquake in Iran's East Azerbaijan province have been released on bail. Among these are: Behrouz Alavi, Esmaeil Salmanpour, Esmaeil Salmanpour, Hamidreza Mosayebian and Houman Taheri. We are seeking confirmation of the total number of volunteer relief workers still imprisoned, in addition to Hossein Ronaghi Maleki and Navid Khanjani.
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 12, 2012:
Hossein Ronaghi, blogger and human rights activist who was among the detained earthquake aid volunteers, is suffering from dangerous internal bleeding of his kidneys. Hossein is being held in a facility in Eastern Azerbaijan and despite his dangerous condition, his release and medical care have been denied.
Hossein Ronaghi who suffers from a severe kidney ailment and has undergone several surgeries, required hospitalization in the past days to receive emergency care for his deteriorating heath. Judicial authorities and security agents in charge have refused to acknowledge Hossein’s medical needs despite the fact that his life his in danger as a result of severe internal bleeding in his kidneys.
On August 22, 2012 Hossein Ronaghi was detained along with his father and brother, Ahmad and Hasan Ronagi Maleki, along with 33 other volunteers and social activists who had gone to the aid of earthquake victims in the province of Azerbaijan. The volunteers were violently detained at their campsite at Sarande by security agents. Some of the volunteers [including Hossein's father Ahmad and brother Hasan] have since been released on bail but judicial authorities have not disclosed any information regarding a possibility of release for Hossein Ronaghi and a number of other detainees.
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 5, 2012:
Navid Khanjani, who was among those arrested in Azerbaijan 2 weeks ago while helping earthquake victims, has been transferred to Rajai Shahr prison, near Tehran. He spent the previous day in Evin prison’s Ward 2-A, which is under the jurisdiction of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). Navid Khanjani was arrested in March 2010 and spent about 2 months in prison before being released on bail. Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court handed down a 12-year prison sentence, which was later upheld by the appellate court.Government-affiliated media have published several negative articles about the activities of Baha’i citizens recently, using Navid Khanjani as an example.
Some of the volunteers arrested while helping earthquake victims have been released on bail but most are still being held: there is no news of their condition. Some of them are being held at Evin prison.
UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 2, 2012:
HOSSEIN RONAGHI MALEKI HAS CONTACTED HIS FAMILY BY PHONE, INFORMING THEM THAT HE IS IN POOR PHYSICAL CONDITION AS A RESULT OF EXTREME BLEEDING OF THE KIDNEYS.
On August 22, 2012, security forces of the Islamic Republic regime in Iran arrested 35 nongovernmental volutneer earthquake relief workers in the East Azerbaijan province. They violently raided relief camps containing supplies for victims of the recent earthquakes in the region. According to close sources, the activists demanded to see the security forces’ warrant and attempted to stand in the way of them confiscating the supplies.
The following are the known names of activists arrested for helping Iran’s earthquake victims: Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, Navid Khanjani, Vahed Kholoosi, Shayan Vahdati, Shima Ghousheh, Misagh Afshar, Vahid Rouhani, Maziar Esmaeilpour, Morteza Esmaeilpour, Hamid Reza Mossayebian, Ali Mohammadi, Mohsen Saemi, Masoud Vafabakhsh, Houman Taheri, Danial Hosseini, Nafiseh Shahidfar, Bahram Shojaie, Mohammad Arjmandi Rad, Esmael Salmanpour, Baghban Bashi, Narges Kheirollahi, Mehdi Salehi, Behrouz Alavi, Milad Panahipour, Sepehrdad Saheban, Esmael Rafati, Amir Ronaghi, Hassan Ronaghi, Jafar Gholami, Kiana Karimpour, Farnaz Ahmadzadeh, Artemiz Varzandeh, Mehrnaz Ahmadzadeh, Amin Ronaghi, Reyhaneh Hesami, Ali Taghdiri, and Sadegh Rezaie Giglu.
Most of the them were subsequently released. However, several remain in custody. Those remaining in custody were transferred from the quarantine ward at Tabriz prison to the intelligence ministry where according to a source close to one of the detainees they were subjected to interrogation for a period of five days.
Prominent among them are blogger and furloughed prisoner of conscience Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, and Navid Khanjani, a human rights activist and student of Baha’i faith who was out of jail pending an appeal against his 12-year prison sentence.
There are rising concerns over Hossein Ronaghi Maleki's deteriorating physical condition given that the judicial and intelligence authorities have denied Ronaghi Maleki access to any medication and medical treatment (see below for details of the extremely perilous state of his health due to acute kidney failure).
Hossein's father Ahmad Ronaghi Maleki was also arrested, and subsequently suffered a minor heart attack and was taken to the hospital. He has since been released.
Navid Khanjani, a human rights activist and student of Baha’i faith who was out of jail pending an appeal against his 12-year prison sentence.
Hossein and Navid are locked up in Ward 1 of Tabriz Prison, where they declared a dry hunger strike on Saturday, August 25. They were officially charged with "handing out contaminated goods".
The following is background information on these two brave sons of Iran:
HOSSEIN RONAGHI MALEKI
Hossein Ronaghi Maleki is a 25year old blogger who used the name Babak Khorramdin for his blogs. He was also involved in writing computer programs and used his expertise in bypassing filters to combat the censorship environment in Iran’s cyberspace. He was born in the city of Tabriz in Iran and speaks th…e Azari language.
Hossein Ronaghi-Maleki was arrested on December 13, 2009. Hossein endured relentless intimidation and abuse in an attempt to coerce him into making a confession during the televised trials.
On October 4, 2010, after 10 months of temporary detention in Ward 2A of Evin prison, holding this human rights activist under an unknown condition, finally his verdict was issued. Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court issued a sentence of 15years in prison. Hossein was given the ruling by the head officer of Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court, who used threats to force Hossein into signing the verdict. When he refused to sign the verdict, the head of the office and his officers savagely attacked and beat Hossein. So on October 7, 2010, Hossein went on his third hunger strike in protest of the brutal assault against him.
On November 20, 2010, Hossein’s file went to the appeal court despite the protests of his lawyers. On December 1, 2010, the 15year sentence for Hossein Maleki was upheld by branch 54 of the appeal court. The charges announced against him in court were “membership in Iran Proxy Network” and “insulting the leadership and insulting the president.”
At the time the devastating earthquakes struck, Hossein was on medical furlough from Evin Prison after a prolonged hungerstrike to demand medical treatment for his failing kidneys. Despite the precarious situation of both his health and his tenuous "freedom", Hossein Ronaghi was one of the true sons and daughters of Iran who did not hesitate to rush to the scene of the earthquakes to begin immediate relief efforts.
Hossein Ronaghi Maleki had just undergone a 7th kidney operation and a number of other detainees are said to have launched a dry hunger strike, an act that exasperated Ronaghi Maleki's physical condition and led to further bleeding of his kidneys.
On December 20, 2010, Navid Khanjani, a human rights activist and student of Baha’i faith banned from higher education was sentenced to 12 years in prison and fined by Judge Pirabbasi of branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court.
Navid Khanjani was charged with “Acting against national security”, “Propaganda against the regime”, “Disturbing public order”, “Libel”, “Founding the Baha’i Education Rights Committee”, and “Membership in [two human rights organizations], the Committee of Human Rights Reporters (CHRR) and Human Rights Activists (HRA)”.
While awaiting appeal of his sentence, Navid has been out of prison on bail.
His sentence of 12 years and fine was upheld by the appeals court on August 22, 2012....And then he was arrested while volunteering to assist earthquake victims.
The mass arrest of Iranian volunteer (non-regime) relief workers must be viewed against the backdrop of the regime's dismal record in response to the earthquakes.
As Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, in a joint statement with Karim Lahidji (vice-president of the International Federation for Human Rights ) observed:
"Two weeks since the earthquake in the Azerbaijan province of Iran, the authorities of the Islamic Republic are still pursuing a policy of silence and secrecy. They have not published the real figures of the casualties, the demolished villages and residential units or the financial damages. Furthermore, they have failed to provide adequate basic aid to the people. To make matters worse, by despatching the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) to the area, they have established a reign of fear and intimidation by arresting scores of civic activists and volunteer relief workers and trying to disrupt the work of the people who are endeavouring to help our quake-struck compatriots."
The International Federation for Human Rights provides further details:
"Ever since the earthquake, the authorities have tried to impose restrictions on popular and non-governmental aid to the victims and have failed to supply adequate aid to them. Furthermore, by deploying the IRGC and confiscating the privately collected supplies, they have tried to disrupt the flow of aid to the earthquake victims. The government has blocked bank accounts set up by non-governmental groups to aid the victims. Some groups of social workers specialised in helping children as well as psychologists who had travelled to the area to help the people have been forced to leave in the face of threats by the security and intelligence departments of the provincial capital Tabriz and the city of Ahar. The IRGC forces have been searching the trucks and other vehicles on the roads and partially confiscating private supplies donated by the people.
The earthquake victims are in pressing need for food, medicine, health, medical and psychiatric assistance. Shortage of medical staff and nurses has increased the likelihood of the spread of infectious diseases including cholera. People in the earthquake-struck regions have complained of improper distribution of food by the IRGC, which has reportedly been storing the aid received. Even representatives of the state Red Crescent Organisation have been facing impediments to their work caused by the IRGC. There have been reports of favouritism displayed by government agents in distributing aid to some families....Civic activists and other compatriots have rushed to aid the earthquake victims. However, the authorities are trying to monopolise all contact with the victims and do not shy away from deploying security and military forces to achieve their goal."
The level of politics in this country has become an absolute joke.
From MP's who make accusations in coward's castle, to decisions made without consultation, we all vote for a reason but when this is taken away from us we need to stand up and make them listen.
ObamaCare caused health insurance to skyrocket from around $13,000 to now over $15,500 for family insurance with never-ending annual increases. Our take home pay is reduced by this amount and all of this money goes directly to Big Money Political Donor Insurance Companies.
Plus we pay out-of-pocket co-pays up to average deductible amounts of $1,000-$2,000. Sign the petition now to replace this broken system with our new "Citizen-Centered Platform of Solutions" that gives every citizen the "American Freedom Benefit Package."
If you help us and we win, just one of your many new benefits will be the American Healthcare Freedom Plan where we simply take up to $6,000 per individual and $12,000 per family away from the insurance companies and place it directly in your 100% Government Exempt Trust Fund that is never taxed and is fully inheritable. Then you can have a secure fund to cover all routine and preventative care expenses, and if you ever you reach your annual deductible your plan automatically converts to 100% insurance coverage.
All unused funds roll over to future years so you can build a huge TAX FREE Health Assurance Account (HAA) Trust Fund. One of the many magnificent benefits of this plan is that all accumulated funds above your annual deductible can be used for your personal needs.
Now instead of being forced to invest in risky and corrupt markets where average investors lose 30%-70% of our wealth every 8-13 years or save with banks that lend our own money to us a 4%-20% or more while giving us less than 1% on our savings we will now be able to invest in ourselves and our families. Now, we will be able to skip the banking middlemen and finance our own purchases from orthodontics and elective medical procedures to automobiles and home improvements to education costs to virtually all of our major life needs.
With your new benefit package you will be able to finance your own purchases from your pent up retirement and healthcare funds and repay yourself with interest. In the end you will own the things you need in life and when you repay your loans to yourself you will have tremendous wealth.
Our politicians voted to implement ObamaCare against the will of the people and before they even read the bill. Now we know that ObamaCare was 2,900 pages of political payoffs to Big Money donors that exacerbates all of the problems of our current system to make them worse. The AHFP solves all of the root problems in our current system to slash healthcare costs in every area. You will love our Total Citizen-Centered Platform that solves all of the major issues our country faces because we drastically decrease the costs of living while dramatically increasing the standard of living for every American Citizen. We also save taxpayers $2 Trillion annually with our total platform of solutions that ends deficit spending, pays off our national debt and brings solvency back to our local, state and federal budgets.
Sign our petition now so we can get to work for you, and then tell everyone you know to do the same. Go here for the complete details: http://goo.gl/4o9oZ

Genocide, starvation, corruption and injustice in the Sierra Tarahumara, Chihuahua, Mexico. And in the cities people die in the hospitals because of insufficient care by public servants while there is money to be spent: 32 million on unnecessary remodelling, hundreds of bridges, etc.
The United States Congress has proven itself to be self-serving by voting itself:
1) A Lifetime Pension;
2) A Lifetime Free Healthcare Plan.
Families of Sudden / Tragic deaths are being failed by inadequate investigations! Lack of forensics, DNA, Toxicology, Photographic evidence, wounds, bruises samples etc. Police records missing, witnesses misled & manipulation by the Police Forces which are key evidence, fact!
The rights of the bereaved not being given yet this is required by Law. Along with Coroners intimidation & the I.P.C.C lack of independent monitoring, ( over 100 honest lawyers walked out because of their corruption, lies & non impartiality ).
The police failure creates a domino effect in these Sudden death investigations which then snowballs to the pathologist, coroner and returns to the I.P.C.C. as a complaint. The perverse power to protect their own is unbelievable / unforgivable.
Bereaved families should not be subject to this abuse / lack of duty of care by HM departments! The only crime that they have committed is to lose their loved one!
Where as our congress persons and/or government representatives have voted themselves raises, insurance benefits and retirement benefits that are not consistent with the average American citizen.
Where as our congress persons and/or government representatives are not representing the average American citizen but have apparently sold themselves to the highest bidder.
Congress does not work for the citizenry of the U.S, rather they are working for special interests groups.
Lobbyist direct the method of legislature going to the floor of Congress. Its time they are brought to realaity and forced to work for the People.

رسالة مفتوحة إلى المشاركين في الدورة الرابعة لمؤتمر الدول الأطراف في اتفاقية الأمم المتحدة لمكافحة الفساد
It is the civic duty of every citizen to hold their government accountable when it betrays the public trust and when it demonstrably fails to exercise its prescribed powers. When those elected behave as though they are above the law and abandon their Oath of Office to uphold and defend the Constitution, it remains for the people to demand justice for the wrongs committed against them.
The Indian Trail Town Council, and staff, have continued to engage in unethical, unlawful, immoral, and illegal actions. The following list of offenses provides sufficient probable cause to investigate the culture of corruption that pervades local government, which endangers the people's unalienable rights to “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
The intent of this petition is to begin the process of restoring an open and transparent government to the Town of Indian Trail, North Carolina.

This petition is based on a number of my letters that were sent to MP Right Honourable David Cameron PM, which concerned an ever-rising number of unlawful deprivation issues to UK society. These irrefutable shown issues were presented to the current Prime Minister in requesting he uphold his public duty and the acts of UK law on behalf of UK society.
The Prime Minister has been made aware many times not only in these requests but also by an ever-rising many concerned other people of the UK by their lawful requests. Who have the same or similar concerns in the ever-rising deprivation towards UK society that is unlawfully/un-legislatively maliciously causing their unnecessary suffering? Where an unlawful willing malicious blindness to upholding any stated public duty or the upholding of the acts of UK law gives lawful rise to the petitions question
Rex Bellotti Junior, at the age of 15, was the victim of a disgusting injustice, committed by Albany officers of the Western Australian Police. It is amazing that he survived being run over by a WA Police 4WD, although he is now crippled for life. Rex Jr. nearly bled to death at the scene, due to a severed femoral artery, tissue was visibly ripped from his leg, and during the thirteen hour trip to provide him with the life saving surgery he so desperately needed, he had to be resuscitated twelve times and he will probably lose his leg.
That in itself is horrific enough, but what makes the Bellotti case all the more alarming is that despite the fact that four WA Police vehicles were on the scene within 90 seconds and there were at least twenty people who witnessed the crash or saw the aftermath, not one witness was interviewed until over a month later (once the media became involved). Out of all those officers present, not one can say what direction they arrived from, there are contradictions between WAPOL records of what time the 'incident' occurred, Rex Jr's location on the road, and not one of those four 2009 model police vehicles were fitted with CCTV or GPS despite that being standard WAPOL issue. The full horrid complexities of this case are appalling.
There has never been a genuine investigation, no compensation has been awarded to Rex Jr., and no criminal charges have been brought against those WA police officers driving the vehicle which hit Rex Jr. or those who have lied in legally binding documents.
The Australian Federal Police have been involved in a number of high profile prosecutions that have led to the conviction and incarceration of a number of innocent victims, including Capt. Fred Martens, Miss Jill Courtney, Dr Muhamed Haneef and the questionable rendition to Australia of the former Attorney-General of the Solomon Islands, Mr. Julian Moti QC in circumstances that can only be described as politically motivated.
Further, the AFP have exhibited questionable conduct in their dealings with the Bali Nine and Ms. Schapelle Corby. The recent trial and conviction of former AFP officer Mr Mark Standen for conspiring to import into Australia $130,000,000 of the precursor for making ice (i.e. pseudoephedrine) raises concerns of entrenched corruption within the AFP.
The murder of Australian Mr Drew Grant at the Freeport Mine in West Papua and subsequent allegations of tampering with the evidence contained within the victim’s body while in the custody of Australian authorities again points to possible corruption within Australia’s international security services, including the AFP.
The ongoing human rights abuses in West Papua being carried out by Detachment 88, which is trained and funded by the AFP, highlights the need for greater accountability within the AFP in its dealings with police and foreign security services.
The large number of refugees who died in the sinking of the SEIV X and the SIEV 221 and ongoing allegations that the AFP, through its agents, may have been involved in criminal conduct resulting in the deaths of these refugees needs to be investigated at the highest level.
Compounding these sad events are allegations from Portugal that Australian military intelligence personnel were involved in fomenting unrest in Timor-Leste, in order to further Australia’s political and commercial interests in the region. This lends weight to a suggestion that the AFP has become politicised and is being used as an instrument of terror, to pervert the rule of law, in order to further Australia’s neo-colonial interests in the region.
A number of high profile Australian citizens have been charged in controversial circumstances under Australia’s sex tourism laws and have either had their convictions quashed on appeal or are awaiting the outcome of the appeal process. The question needs to be asked as to whether these charges were brought out of a legitimate belief that a crime had been committed, or whether the AFP were acting solely to further Australia’s political and/or commercial interests in the region.
The murder of Mr Colin Winchester and the death of Ms Audrey Fagan, both senior AFP officers attached to ACT Policing (a command of the AFP) at the time of their deaths, must raise questions about why the smallest policing command in Australia has witnessed the deaths of two of its most senior officers. It is interesting to note that prior to his murder, Mr Colin Winchester was involved in investigating drug importation as part of his role with the AFP.
It’s for these reasons that I believe that it is necessary to hold a Royal Commission into the AFP.
We believe an impartial judiciary is essential to the administration of justice. However, the current judicial system sets its own rules and laws for attorneys and judges under a self-regulated system that provides no consequence for actions which are in contravention to the rules and laws by which others are expected to abide. Subsequently, a small percentage of judicial officers and attorneys commit acts of misconduct, for which they suffer no penalty or redress.
We believe in promoting public awareness, through the news media, public forums, and within the halls of Congress. Therefore, we will use the website “Breached Justice” to publish stories of abuse experienced in the judicial system, to educate the public, and to promote judicial transparency. We believe the people can effect change and request the people’s support for the cause by signing our petition for change.
We believe it is important to abolish the confidentiality of complaints made against judicial officers and to have involvement of ordinary persons in attorney disciplinary matters. Our goal is to create procedures which will hold judges and attorneys accountable for their behavior by holding them responsible for their actions, and subject to consequences for abusive behavior and violations of the rules and laws which govern others’ behavior.
We seek to promote The Bell Transparency Act of 2011, a new Act which creates a civil cause of action for a “Finding” of misconduct of a Judge, provides for a jury trial, and allows a procedural stay of a case wherein a Judge is presiding and a complainant is a party .
We seek to publicly address and redefine self regulation within the judicial system.
Follows the discovery of widespread unethical and illegal activities by News Corporation in the United Kingdom, the Australian people have concerns over these practices happening in Australia, especially given News Corporation control around 70 per cent of major Australian newspapers and significant other media interests in this country.
Only a wide ranging Inquiry into all aspects of the conduct of the media in this country will satisfy public concerns.
I firmly believe fifa is killing the sport, keep corruption out. Bribery, lies and backroom deals are all things that relate to fifa. Even David Cameron has said fifa's dealings are “murky”.
With fifa officials being probed and qatar hosting a world cup I think it's time to turn our back on fifa.
For over two years grassroots patriots from various parties, groups and walks of life have worked tirelessly to hold our government accountable for living by our Constitution, in a fiscally conservative manner and respect free market principles established by our founders.
The 2010 election was a reflection of those efforts. However, the actions and words coming out of the House and Senate Leadership and President’s Administration court disaster, not recovery. They should be ashamed. Monday, May 9th, three national tea party supporters will be in DC sending a warning to federal lawmakers that this abysmal handling of our finances, trampling on our God given and constitutional rights and abuse of our Constitution must stop.
The Debt Ceiling has been "raised" 74 times in the last 25 years. It has encouraged massive debt, not achieving fiscal responsibility. The legal borrowing cap of $14.3 Trillion Dollars is outrageous. Including unfunded liabilities our debt is about 10 times that. The "cuts" embraced during the "lame duck session" were a joke. It is your constitutional duty to "protect and defend" the American people from anyone trying to do harm to this country. You all took an oath to uphold the Constitution.
Now the harmful tactics are being perpetrated by the FED and the government itself because federal employees who work for us are not doing their job. The undersigned people believe if drastic fiscal budget remedies are not immediately enacted by Congress and signed by the President, financial Armageddon is on its way.
On the 3rd of April 2011, 35 young people from five states in North India got together at the Pinebrook Center near Shillong to discuss the main justice issues facing North East India. Out of this small meeting came the ‘Pinebrook Manifesto’ which you have before you.
We feel strongly that the political norms in our states must change.
We cry for more accountability, more honesty, more peace and more tangible solutions to the ongoing problems that destabilize and cripple the progress of our region. We have chosen six issues that need real and lasting change. This list is not exhaustive but we believe these are some of the main areas that need to be addressed. We realize that these issues are complex and that often we, the people of the North East, perpetuate the problems. But this manifesto is directed at us as much as it is our politicians. We want to see ourselves change as well as our leaders. All of us have signed this document; we ask that you also, as a person from the North East region, sign this document and join our movement for more integrity and justice in our States.
On May 15th we will send this manifesto, along with the signatures to the Chief Minister of Assam, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, Tripura, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. This is just a small act but we believe even small movements of justice can situate us on a road to more peace. As Amos, the 8th century herdsman said “…let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream”. Send this link to your friends and your friends of friends from the North East. Join us in bring lasting change to our region.
Social Activist Anna Hazare is fasting unto death and is sitting at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi 24x7 - he wants the government to be serious about implementing the 'Jan Lokpal Bill' which will be a vehicle to bring accountability and fight corruption at all levels of society, politics, business, judiciary, bureacracy, etc... Many versions of this bill has been talked about and delyed for the last 42 years. It is now the second day of fasting and he said he is ready to die for this.
India against corruption needs the support of a mass scale global people's movement that the Indian government can't ignore. Would you please sign this petition and tell the prime minister Manmohan Singh that you support Anna Hazare and the fight against corruption in India.
HARD COPY OF THIS EXACT TEXT CAN BE FOUND AT www.kaURna.webs.com I encourage all Australian residents to download the PDF hardcopy, collect a few signatures (no address needed) and return as per the PDF. There is NO citizenship requirements to sign the hardcopy or electronic petition, however Australia's Parliament won't accept the electronic format, only hardcopy.
The intent to to stop enforced segregation of harms which could take a victim their entire adult life or well over 30 years to progress through the civil courts or otherwise logistically impossible for one person to deal with.
Stalking and assault and torture and surgery without legal authority are all unlawful in Australia, they all carry the potential of lengthy penal sentencing under criminal law, however Australian legislation has one huge loophole that forces a victim of these crimes to prosecute each single incident separately under civil or common law (state) or human rights treaties (federal or High court). That is if you are stalked by say 20 persons and police refuse to investigate each one and each of the 20 individuals assault you in separate incidents you have to prosecute each separately as unconnected events despite evidence that strongly suggests they are connected as one crime. Unlike the treatment of defamation, there is no allowance to deem multiple assaults as one stalking event that generates many incidents.
Point TWO (2):
The intent is to remove the expectation that only an "expert" is be legally entitled to define the existence of a foreign item a radiology film. Presently you must have a signed letter from a medical practitioner to say you have a hatchet poking out of your head if you want it removed, that is to say in the event that you do have a hatchet poking out of your head which you also want removed.
Jane is being stalked by many persons, most are strangers to her or persons she knows but is unaware they are the stalkers. The stalkers have caused Jane to be considerably surgically raped the evidence is in radiology diagnostic film funded by Medicare Australia between 2005 and 2010 inclusive. The film has been falsely interpreted on paper omitting to describe foreign items inside Jane that are very clearly seen in the film. The stalkers have falsely defamed Jane. The question of did the surgical rape of defamation come first is insignificant in the presence of the fact that both are considerably criminal, more so if there was premeditation and where both exist concurrently and begun around the same period of time then clearly there was premeditation.
The "choice" to investigate or not investigate a crime is removed as an option for a law enforcement official. That Federal police refuse to investigate these crimes against the Commonwealth of Australia then there is clear evidence that police are amongst the stalkers. Police should seen in legislation in a different light from the rest of us insomuch as they should have less room for error as they have more trust. Police should never be allowed to refuse to investigate any crime. It should not be up to police to choose what crime they want to investigate because that leaves individual police department "law enforcement" "public officials" open to be contracted by any third party as tools of stalkers. Under the present system of Australia police governance career criminals must presently be employed as senior police and aspiring cadets and everywhere in-between. Law enforcement officers are not necessarily police officers.
No land-line telephone number should be allowed to be blocked - as a society of humans who are defined as the superior race on earth because we are able to speak then we MUST all have full confidence in the ability to identify a person we encounter through verbal communication. If someone wants to preserve their telephone privacy they can call on a public phone. In these days of technology awareness rampant identity theft and sophisticated electronic crimes and the expectation that all government public officials must be accountable under statute, public official anonymity is totally unacceptable.

When you go to a governmental Institution for updating license of your vehicle, driving, company, first you are not welcomed properly. The behavior is inhumane. Then you are given a pile of papers under a policy called 'estelam' for clearance to do it by yourself. These clearance process usually takes long time.
Government should reform its systems; otherwise it will not work properly; and lead to serious frustration and predisposes corruption because if you pay bribes you are exempted from all these procedures. That is really frustrating.

Through the years letters have been written to the Wardens at the Beamount Prison, Regional office of the BOP, Washington D.C. offices concerning the corruption of the guards and how they break the rules and change policies and procedures to meet their needs.
The officers work together for organized crime then accuse the inmate and their families of bringing in contraband to the facilities. When complaints are made the officers are re-assigned to another location in the prison and the problem is never fixed instead a band aid is placed over the sore.
Through the years fake investigations have been done to hush up the family members.
Since becoming FIFA President in June 1998, Sepp Blatter has committed innumerable crimes against the sport of football, blatantly disrespecting the game, its players, its supporters, and its officials.
Blatter has been involved in several scandals:

3. Refusal to implement modern goal-line technology to take pressure off referees and ensure fair play
