One of his articles, published in February on the Kitabat website, was particularly scathing about the province’s electricity problems.According to the JFO’s Nasariyah representative, Akram Al-Tamimi, several local politicians had taken a dim view of his articles and had not hesitated to “request this arrest in order to silence his criticism.” Ghassan Saleh, a lawyer who has spoken to Shahtur since his arrest, told the JFO he was arrested on an order issued by the government, not one issued by any court.

Change in water disinfection

Residents may notice a bleach or chlorine like smell in the water, but it is nothing to be concerned about. During this interim period of approximately 30 days, the City will use only chlorine to disinfect the water supply instead of the combination of chlorine and ammonia to form Chloramines. The change in disinfection will be implemented as a proactive maintenance activity in our distribution system to assist in maintaining adequate chlorine residuals. The City has made this same change to its disinfectant in past years with minimal impact on its customers. The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has been notified of the change in the treatment of the water and concurs that it is the best method of ensuring that adequate chlorine residuals are maintained throughout the distribution system.

The decision was taken in conjunction with the Advocates community of Kerala and all Bar Associations. The lawyers’ community has highlighted several difficulties being faced by them and it aggrieved that other than giving oral assurances to ameliorate the same, the High Court did not take any steps in furtherance. The Council wrote: “The Chief Justice and the Judges of the Administrative Committee have orally assured the delegation of the Bar Council of Kerala that it would be called to discuss the many grievances pointed out by the Council. … so far, no action is taken. Moreover, the Bar Council has not been called for even a single meeting as assured. On the contrary, even the oral requests from the side of the Bar Council for a meeting with the Chief Justice to address the immediate and urgent issues affecting the Advocates’ community in Kerala have been repeatedly turned down, which is an embarrassment to the Advocates’ community.” One of the major issues highlighted by the Bar Council in its letter is the arbitrary functioning of the Kerala State Legal Services Authority (KELSA). It is alleged that KELSA takes unilateral decisions, “prejudicially affecting” the whole Advocates’ community in the State. “Presently, it is a matter of grave concern that the E-Lok Adalat and the Standard Operating Protocol (SOP) of the E-Lok Adalat, which have major consequences for the whole Advocates’ community in Kerala, have been arbitrarily introduced by KELSA,” they pointed out. Other issues highlighted in the letter include: Countless difficulties and hardships faced by lawyers in respect of professional fees for litigations in the Motor Accidents Claims Tribunals (MACT), which was seriously affecting the livelihood of the lawyer community in general and certain lawyers in particular. This has happened due to changes made in the rules by the High Court without consultation, the Council said.Misbehaving conduct or errant behavior of certain Judicial Officers (a minuscule minority among Judicial Officers) demeaning and degrading lawyers including Senior and reputed lawyers at various Court Centres in Kerala.Representatives of the Bar are ignored or sidelined in all major developments including e-filing and Court e-systems on the Judicial and Professional side, by the highest Judiciary of the State as if the Bar is an inconsequential partner in administration of Justice and judicial process.

The non-registration of the petitioner (political party) by the respondent (ECI) on or before October 8 has resulted in irreparable loss to the party,” the plea said.However, it was next submitted that in the second stage, 73 candidates of the petitioner party filed nominations out of which 63 nominations have been accepted.Further, it was claimed that a large number of candidates were given a symbol of CHESS BOARD. Hence, it was prayed that CHESS BOARD is a free symbol and the same may be allotted to the petitioner party in view of the communication issued by the respondent (ECI).In response to this, the counsel appearing for the respondent raised a preliminary objection stating that the present relief sought is barred under Article 329(b) of the Constitution of India.The Counsel also relied upon the judgment of a Coordinate Bench of the court in the case Sanjoy Sachdev vs. Chief Election Commission, ILR (2003) 2 Delhi 529 and the Judgment of the Supreme Court in the case of Mohinder Singh Gill and Anr. Vs. Chief Election Commissioner New Delhi & Ors, AIR 1978 SC 851.It was argued by the ECI that the term ‘election’ includes all steps and the entire proceedings commencing from the date of notification of election till the date of declaration of the result.Lastly, the counsel for the petitioner stated that there was no interim injunction application with the petition and that there was no intention to interdict the election process.The Court ordered that Counter-affidavit be filed within four weeks from the date of the order. The matter has been listed for further hearing on 21.12.2020.[With PTI inputs]Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Magma supply in back-arc spreading segment E2, East Scotia Ridge

first_imgSegment E2 is situated in the back-arc East Scotia Ridge. The segment is unusual in that it has an axial topographic high underlain by a seismically imaged melt lens. The axis of the segment, which is 70 km long, was sampled at ∼2 km spacing. There is strong correlation between compositions and bathymetry, and there is no evidence that lateral flow of magmas along dykes within the segment was more than 25 km. Magmas are more evolved towards the summit, indicating that magma fractionation took place within the imaged melt lens. Na8·0 is roughly constant at ∼2·6, implying uniform degree of partial melting, except for some samples at the summit that have Na8·0 = 2·2. Compositions closest to N-MORB occur at the segment tips, and LREE/HREE ratios increase toward the summit. None of the magmas were derived from depleted sub-arc mantle. Nevertheless, most compositions in the segment were modified by slab-derived components. The low-Na8·0 samples have high Ba/Nb compared with the rest of the segment. Dredged lavas from the lateral flanks of the summit have the most extreme compositions, including ones derived from plume mantle, and are end-members for magma mixing processes that controlled compositionslast_img read more
