(Source: Reuters) Related News South Africa were left with no answers to Pakistan in their ICC Champions Trophy 2017 encounter as the rains hastened confirmation of their defeat David Miller scored an unbeaten 75 and was the reason why South Africa managed to breach the 200-run mark Chasing a target of 220 to win Pakistan scored 119/3 in 27 overs before rain caused the players to leave the field However Pakistan were 19 runs ahead of the par score as per the Duckworth-Lewis method Babar Azam played a steady knock of 31 to guide his side to a strong position He was ably supported by Fakhar Zaman who scored 31 of 23 and hit five fours For South Africa Morne Morkel bowled a fiery spell of seven overs where he grabbed three wickets and continuously troubled the Pakistan batsman But it wasn’t enough as Pakistan somehow survived the scare and kept the scoreboard ticking Incidentally apart from the first match between Bangladesh and England this is the sixth match where the play was interrupted due to rain Earlier South Africa won the toss and elected to bat But their plan did not yield the desired result as they got off to a poor start as Imad Wasim and Hassan Ali put the shackled on the South African top order The batting was a big letdown for the Proteas and left a lot to be desired They kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were futile in their attempts to maintain a consistent partnership The only bright spot in the batting for South Africa was David Miller who scored a decent 75 of 104 deliveries and took full advantage of the poor bowling to him and took the bowlers to all parts of the ground In his innings of 75 he pulled drove and cut with panache He also picked the gaps in the field to perfection Meanwhile for Pakistan the star performer with the ball was Hasan Ali who returned with figures of 3/24 Courtesy of his bowling he was awarded the man of the match South Africa’s loss has opened up the group and gives the match between India and

blood of war for the terrorists who attack our continent or who fight in Iraq and Syria” EU Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici said “For our own security we must at all costs cut off their sources of funds starting with the traffic in antiquities stolen in these countries” Historic sites such as the Roman town of Palmyra in Syria and countless other even older cities in Iraq have been looted and damaged by extremist groups such as Islamic State who sell the cultural treasures to fund their wars Murky middlemen sell them on to collectors in the west who may or may not care too much about the origin of priceless artefacts of national or even global cultural importance The European Commission the EU’s executive arm said it aimed “to stop this traffic in its tracks by banning the import into the EU of cultural goods exported illegally from their home countries” “Diverging and ineffective existing national legislations in this area means that EU action is necessary to ensure consistent treatment of imports of cultural goods all along the EU’s external borders” a statement said Among the measures the Commission said it wanted EU member states to agree a common definition for “cultural goods” which would cover “a broad range of objects including archaeological finds ancient scrolls the remains of historical monuments artwork collections and antiques” A new licensing system will require importers to obtain clearance from EU authorities before bringing these objects into the bloc not afterwards For other less sensitive items importers will have to submit proof that the goods have been exported legally from the third country Customs will have the power to seize and retain goods if it cannot be shown that they have been legally exported the statement said Lastly member states will also have to ensure that “effective proportionate and dissuasive penalties are in place” The Commission said the the legal global art and antiques market was estimated to be worth 56 billion euros ($62 billion) in 2016 with Europe accounting for 19 billion euros It said the illicit trade could be worth up to 60 billion euros catching up with drugs arms or counterfeit goods

“the lady is the victim of crime and not a perpetrator” a local court has dismissed the bail plea of a doctor accused of molesting his patient who hails from the USA Notwithstanding her nationality the court observed that that “merely because the complainant took two to three days to ponder over before lodging a complaint her complaint could not brushed aside” The woman was reportedly molested periodically during her treatment by the resident doctor at a prominent private hospital in the city on March 24 The woman was reportedly awaiting a physical examination as a formality before being discharged after undergoing treatment for five days Following her complaint three days after the incident the accused was arrested and has been in judicial custody since then on charges under Section 354 of the IPC On Tuesday while seeking bail for the accused the defence counsel told the court of Additional Sessions Judge Girish Kathpalia that the woman was examined in the general ward and that if there was any misconduct the patient would have raised the alarm However acknowledging the fact that the woman was scared since despite the fact that there was misconduct by the doctor where she felt extremely uncomfortable and confused the judge dismissed the counsel’s argument stating “…frustration and disgust of the complainant is writ large in the complaint itself that she wanted to yell at the accused but did not want to face him alone” “… As regards the silence of the complainant I fail to agree with the counsel for the accused that an Indian woman would remain silent due to embarrassment after molestation but a foreigner lady would not Rather a foreigner lady might be much more wary of getting into any police complaint and proceedings in India under the fear of prolonged litigation and proceedings Therefore merely because the complainant took 2-3 days to ponder over before lodging a complaint her complaint cannot be brushed aside Even otherwise the lady is the victim of crime not a perpetrator thereof” the order stated “It needs to be emphasised that cases of sexual violence against a lady are not merely a violence against her bodySuch cases are an exhibit of sexual discrimination and an effort to express masculine instincts over a lady and have to be dealt with sternly by law Such acts of aggression are not at all an expression of love or passion or even lust but are an effort to demonstrate the misplaced notion of male predominance which is a serious abrogation of not just decency but even basic human rights of the victim” the judge observed “Merely because the accused is a doctor by profession in the absence of any reasonable explanation of his alleged conduct he does not deserve a lenient response under law… considering the overall circumstances described I do not find it a fit case to grant bail The application is dismissed” the judge said For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Related NewsChandigarh |
