    Golocal247.com news

    A frustrated Donald Trump reportedly threw briefing papers across the White House floor following his chaotic televised meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Ms Pelosi and Mr Schumer were widely considered to have bested Mr Trump after the 72-year-old was goaded into admitting he would be “proud” to partially shut down the government if congress refuses to approve $5bn in border wall funding. Following the dispute, Mr Trump “stormed out” of the Oval Office, and, holding a folder of briefing papers, “scattered them out of frustration – threw them across the room”, according to the LA Times’ White House reporter Eli Stokols.

  • Former Canadian diplomat detained in China amid tensions over arrest of Huawei executive

    Golocal247.com news

    A former Canadian diplomat has been arrested in  China, amid tensions over the recent detention of a Chinese telecom executive in Vancouver. "We have been in direct contact with the Chinese diplomats and representatives," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said. "We are engaged with the file (case), which we take very seriously." Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale on Tuesday confirmed the detention of Michael Kovrig. "We're deeply concerned," he said. "A Canadian is obviously in difficulty in China. We are sparing no effort to do everything we possibly can to look after his safety." The International Crisis Group said on Tuesday it was aware of reports that Mr Kovrig, its North East Asia senior adviser, had been detained. The Brussels-based non-governmental organisation said in a statement that it's doing everything possible to obtain additional information about Mr Kovrig's whereabouts and that it will work to ensure his prompt release. The Globe and Mail in Toronto and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported the arrest, citing unnamed sources. Reports of Mr Kovrig's detention come after  China  warned Canada of consequences for its December 1 arrest of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou at Vancouver's airport. It's unclear if there's any link between the cases. Ms Meng was detained  over US allegations she misled banks about  Huawei' s control of a firm operating in Iran. Yesterday (Tues), the Washington Post reported that the US government is to take action against China  over hacking and economic espionage,using sanctions and indictments. The report could not immediately be confirmed. The International Crisis Group said Mr Kovrig has been one of its full-time experts since February 2017. The organisation's website says Kovrig previously worked as a Canadian diplomat in Beijing and Hong Kong and at the United Nations. Canada's Global Affairs department didn't immediately respond with comment. Former Canadian Liberal leader Bob Rae said it's clear why he's been detained. "It's called repression and retaliation," Mr Rae tweeted.

  • Pope removes two cardinals linked to sex abuse allegations from his inner circle

    Golocal247.com news

    Two leading cardinals allegedly linked to sexual abuse have been dismissed from Pope Francis' inner circle. Australian Cardinal George Pell and Chilean Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz have been removed from the so-called C9 Council of Cardinals, an advisory body set up by Francis, the Vatican said on Wednesday. Cardinal Pell, appointed head of the Vatican’s economic secretariat by the pope in 2014, has taken a leave of absence to fight allegations of historic sexual misconduct in Australia. He is still officially in charge of Vatican finances, a position considered one of the most powerful in the Catholic hierarchy. Francisco Errazuriz Ossa has been accused of covering up allegations against abusive priests in Chile. Congolese Laurent Monsengwo, 79, who retired as archbishop of Kinshasa in November, is also leaving the advisory council. Vatican spokesman Greg Burke announced the changes on Wednesday, saying Francis had written to the three prelates individually in October, "thanking them for the work they have done for the past five years." In a statement Mr Burke said the Pope had reflected on “the work, structure and composition” of the council after meeting council members in September. Chile's Cardinal Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa has also been removed Credit: AP Photo/Andrew Medichini, File At its latest meeting this week the advisory body discussed a variety of issues from Vatican spending constraints to the special conference on the protection of minors to be held at the Vatican at the end of February next year. The Catholic Church has been hit by a series of child abuse scandals in recent years in countries including the US, Ireland, Chile and Ireland, with widespread allegations of cover-ups against clergy, including the pope himself. Mr Errazuriz, long considered a close papal ally, was archbishop of Santiago from 1998-2010.  He has come under fire in recent months amid claims that he hid the crimes of Chile’s allegedly abusive priests including Fernando Karadima, who has been accused of a string of child sex offenses going back to 1984. Profile | Pope Francis Mr Pell, former archbishop of Sydney, has consistently denied allegations of sexual abuse made against him. Specific details of the accusations have been suppressed by a court order and Australian law strictly limits reporting on proceedings.   Mr Burke declined to comment on court proceedings against 77-year-old Mr Pell saying: "The Holy See has the utmost respect for Australian judicial authorities. We are aware that there is a suppression order in place by the court and we respect that order.” The Pope created the council of cardinals after his election in 2013, tasking the group with helping him reform the Vatican bureaucracy known as the Roman Curia. Mr Burke said the three cardinals would not be replaced immediately, leaving the council temporarily with six members.

  • BJP set for defeat in two key state elections, in blow to Modi ahead of national vote

    Golocal247.com news

    India’s ruling Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday lost three key state elections to the opposition Congress party, in a blow to the momentum of prime minister Narendra Modi ahead of a national poll in the spring.  The opposition Congress Party is now set to succeed BJP governments in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and the crucial state of Madhya Pradesh, in the biggest defeat for Mr Modi since taking office in 2014. The three rural heartland states powered Mr Modi to a landslide victory in that years general election, in which the BJP singlehandedly secured a parliamentary majority for the first time in 30 years, bringing an era of coalition governments to a close. "We accept the people's mandate with humility," Mr Modi wrote on Twitter. "Victory and defeat are an integral part of life. Today's results will further our resolve to serve people and work even harder for the development of India."  Analysts said the BJP’s dissatisfying performance would galvanise the secularist Congress and other regional parties in the run-up to general elections that must be held by next May. “The electoral outcome in these three states could seriously dent the BJP’s political fortunes in the upcoming general elections,” said political analyst Seema Mustafa of the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi. Profile | Narendra Modi The results indicate that voters have not been wholly convinced that Mr Modi has fulfilled ambitious promises on taking office of economic security, employment and improved social services. Millions of farmers were the worst hit section of voters in all states where polling took place for several weeks till 7 December.   “Agrarian distress was the BJP’s bane in these polls,” said Milind Dero of the Congress Party. Around 12,000 farmers have committed suicide each year since 2013 - or around 33 per day- because of debt, declining crop procurement prices, rising fertiliser and fuel costs and corruption. Farmers in all three states that went to the polls were also adversely affected by the demonetisation of high value currency notes that Modi abruptly imposed in November 2016, leading to widespread hardship. It forced farmers, almost entirely dependent on a cash-based rural system to take on further debt, which in turn, prompted scores to take their lives largely by consuming pesticide. The Congress Party wins were also a major boost for the political credibility and standing of Rahul Gandhi, the fourth generation 48-year old scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, who took charge of his party from mother Sonia exactly a year ago. Many analysts and Congress Party insiders had previously dismissed Mr Gandhi as a “light weight” politician, mocking his many public gaffes, but today’s state election outcome is leading to a reassessment. “Rahul Gandhi should get full credit,” said Congress Party leader Shashi Tharoor, who campaigned against the party’s leader, adding that Mr Gandhi’s hard-fought campaigning had won him over.  State-level elections are not perfect indicators of the national mood, analysts noted, but the BJP setbacks are a reversal of the trend that has seen it increase the number of states it controls since 2014. In Rajasthan, initial results showed the Congress Party with 99 seats to the BJP's 73 - 89 fewer than in the last election. And in neighbouring Madhya Pradesh, politically the most vital of all states that went to the polls, Congress had taken 113 seats to the BJP's 111, out of 230.  In Chhattisgarh the Congress Party was ahead in 68 constituencies in a 90-member assembly with the BJP on just 16. Responding to the tallies, a BJP member of India’s upper house, Sanjay Kakade, said:  “I am of the opinion the BJP should stick to the development agenda and not to caste, changing names of cities, or temples. We need to revert to the track of development.” The Election Commission will formally declare the final results today (Weds).
