Grenada joins International Criminal Court

first_img Share 34 Views   no discussions NewsRegional Grenada joins International Criminal Court by: – May 21, 2011 Sharing is caring! (L-R) Grenada’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Dessima Williams, and Gabrielle Goettsche-Wanli of the Office of Legal Affairs of the UNNEW YORK, USA — Grenada has acceded to the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court (ICC) — the founding treaty of the first permanent international court capable of trying perpetrators of genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes.Ambassador Dessima Williams, Permanent Representative to the United Nations on Thursday deposited Grenada’s Instrument of Accession to the Rome Statute of the ICC at a ceremony at the Office of Legal Affairs of the United Nations in New York.Grenada’s accession brings to 26, the number of States Parties of the ICC in Latin America and the Caribbean and the last among the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). Only The Bahamas, Haiti and Jamaica in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) have not joined the ICC.Williams said, “The government of Grenada is very pleased to join with many other CARICOM countries as well as 114 other members of the United Nations in acceding to this statute.”“We look forward to being a very vigorous participant in the implementation of the Court to the extent that we could therefore bring about greater international law and order in the service of humanity for justice, for rights and for the efficient and legal administration of international affairs,” said Williams.Ambassador Christian Wenaweser, Permanent Representative of the Principality of Liechtenstein and President of the Bureau of the Assembly of States Parties to the ICC welcomed Grenada’s accession to the Court and appealed to the remaining CARICOM states to join the ICC family.“On behalf of 114 states that have so far made up this assembly it’s a great honour to welcome you (Grenada) as the 115th member to this assembly and that’s a very important further step on our part towards a universalisation of this Court,” he said. “We are looking forward toward welcoming the three remaining states of CARICOM also as part of the ICC family.”The Parliamentarians for Global Action (PGA) said that Grenada’s accession confirms and reinforces the Caribbean’s important role in making the ICC a lasting and effective reality.The Coalition for the International Criminal Court — a civil society network of 2,500 organizations in over 150 countries advocating for a fair, effective and independent ICC and improved access to justice for victims of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity — commended Grenada for its decision to join 114 other nations around the world and spread support for the ICC in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).“Grenada’s accession affirms its commitment to preventing and putting an end to impunity for serious crimes,” said Coalition Convenor William Pace. “This decision is an important step toward universality of the Rome Statute in the Caribbean Community, and we hope this will inspire other states in the region to join this extraordinary justice system promptly.”In 1989, during the United Nations’ 44th General Assembly, Trinidad and Tobago submitted an agenda item on the establishment of an international criminal court for the Assembly’s consideration. This motion – which gained the support of a number of states, including all CARICOM member states – ultimately resulted in a consensus resolution that called for the creation of an international criminal court.“The acceptance by Grenada of the Rome Statute restates in the most eloquent terms possible the continued commitment of the Caribbean Community to the ICC,” noted Justice Winston Anderson, Judge of the Caribbean Court of Justice, former General Counsel of the Caribbean Community, and Professor of International Law at the University of West Indies.“The Grenadian acceptance also symbolizes the region’s commitment to the maintenance of international criminal justice and the rule of law rather than the rule of the jungle. This is a proud moment in Caribbean jurisprudence,” Anderson added.Earlier this week, government representatives from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Haiti, Jamaica and Grenada, notable jurists and personalities from the region such as A.N.R. Robinson, former prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago, as well as ICC president Judge Sang-Hyun Song, the president of the Assembly of States Parties (ASP) Christian Wenaweser, and the Coalition’s Americas coordinator Francesca Varda, gathered in Port of Spain for a CARICOM seminar on the ICC organized by the government of Trinidad and Tobago.“In addition to welcoming this important accession to the Rome Statute by Grenada, discussions during the conference centered on the need for all states parties to fully support the ICC and to adopt legislation on Rome Statute crimes at the national level and allow effective cooperation with the Court,” said the Coalition’s Americas Coordinator Francesca Varda.By joining the ICC treaty, Grenada will be able to nominate and elect highly qualified candidates for crucial ICC elections scheduled for December 2011, during which state parties will elect six new judges and a new prosecutor, among other key officials.Caribbean News Nowcenter_img Share Tweet Sharelast_img read more

Twisters Boys Soccer Results

first_img#14 ranked Southwestern Shelby came to the graveyard to face #2 ranked OA.  Twsters won 4-1.‘We always talk about winning the first 5 minutes and last 5 minutes of a half if you do this you will have a real good shot at winning the game.  We came out ready and did just that getting two early goals.  We set the tone early even though we were outshot for the game we made our chances count.  I was pleased with our defense as only one ball found the back of the net. Our shape on defense is getting better every time out. Offensively we would like more shots as we thought we left a few out there that we didn’t take. We need some rain as the field is really hard. We got banged up a little. Floop went out early with a hip pointer. Rocks and Gariott also missed some time but were able to come back into the game. With this said we got some great play out of the boys that were subbed in.’  Twisters Coach Ken Getz.Stuart Lamping scored in period 1 at 35:58 on a shot off a keeper miss.  Stuart scored again in period 1 at 33:05 on a shot off a keeper save / rebound.  Lucas McFee scored in period 1 at 13:45 on a PK from a foul on Henry Kraus in the 18.  Southwestern scored in period 2 at 34:50 from a pass in the 18 and shot.  Drew Kersey scored in period 2 at 13:45 on a 24 yard shot on the keeper who was at the top of the 18.  Southwestern had 23 shots with 11 on goal, 11 fouls, 10 corners, 1 hand, 1 yellow card and their keeper had 7 saves.  This was a bit of a physical game but well played by OA.  The defense stepped up in the second half to swat away 14 of their 15 shots.OA had 12 shots with 10 on goal, 5 off sides, 16 fouls, 1 yellow card for Drew Kersey, 1 corner, 2 hand balls and Chris Hautman had 10 saves with one very nice push over the top on a rocket shot from outside the 18.OA traveled to Knightstown on a hot and humid night for a varsity match winning 4-1. We were without five starters and three subs as our seniors were on their Senior retreat.  So this was a preview of what next year’s team might look like and they didn’t disappoint us. We actually scored all 5 goals on the game.  Some miscommunication between Goalie and the defense.  The defense is instructed to clear everything unless told different. We have been stressing that communication is a key to your game. This is still something we have to get better at.‘Offensively we had a couple first time varsity goals as Max Kirschner  and Gariott Scott both scored on head balls both assisted by Lucas McFee off of a corner.  What was nice to see was all four of our goals came from an assist. Lucas had a big night with three assists and one goal so he accounted for every score we had. Ben Kraus and Matthew Hoog [Rocks] controlled the midfield as they seemed to be everywhere on the night. We took 21 players and all 21 got in the game with at least 15 minutes of playing time.’  Twisters Coach Ken Getz.Max Kirschner scored in period 1 at 30:21 assisted by Lucas McFee on a header off a corner. Gariott Scott scored in period 1 at 4:55 assisted by Lucas McFee on a shot off a corner. Lucas McFee scored in period 2 at 33:12 assisted by Mathew Hoog on a pass to the 18 and shot.  Ben Kraus scored in period 2 at 12:08 assisted by Lucas McFee on a head off a corner. Knightstown scored in period 2 at 27:55 on an OA own goal headed by Adam Huber over Chris Hautman.A lot of nice passing and teamwork, especially in the second half.  Henry Kraus was on the receiving end of a couple ‘fouls’ during the game which included a pounding near the end of the game from the keeper who may have been 3 times his size.High School Soccer was back at the graveyard after a year off refurbishing the field and Lawrenceburg was the opponent.  Lawrenceburg came in with a pre-season ranking of #3 in the state in 2A with OA #4 in the state in 1A. Both teams lived up to their billing as it was a classic back and forth game. I know the score was 0-0 but the game was action packed with scoring opportunities from both schools. Neither defense gave in despite the high pressure that was put on by both offenses on the night.‘We had to rebuild our defense from a year ago with only one returning starter from last year. So I was very pleased overall with their play anytime you can get a shutout you have to be happy. Along with a lot of new faces in the back we are running a different formation also. So still learning as a team what everybody’s responsibilities are.  We are young in two critical parts of our defense Central back and keeper.  Adam Huber Sophomore central back and Freshman Chris Hautman at keeper first varsity start for both. The future is bright with these two.  Ben Abrams came in and gave us great minutes at defensive back.  Yes Ben is a senior but again a youngster in the back line. Ben has only played on the offensive side of the field in the past. Three weeks ago we discovered Ben can play defense.  Offensively we had some chances Nate Folop had a couple good looks that he normally finishes. A couple great saves from their keeper  kept us off the board. Lucas McFee made great run late in the first half that we all wish we had back and could do over.’  Twisters Coach Ken Getz.I have been asked what our strengths will be this year I have said our depth. Last night we didn’t miss a beat when we subbed.  Coach Getz.last_img read more

After Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy suffers violent collision, MLB catchers and All-Stars react

first_imgCLEVELAND — When Jake Marisnick violently collided with Jonathan Lucroy, it was felt by catchers all over the majors.As the players gathered for the All-Star Game on Monday, there was much discussion about what had happened to the Angels catcher during Sunday’s final game before the break.“There’s definitely a brotherhood behind the plate,” Philadelphia Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto said. “It’s hard to see that. We’ve all been in situations like that where you’ve gotten hit or just missed getting hit. It’s scary.”Lucroy remained in Houston on Sunday night to be evaluated. He was diagnosed with a concussion and a fractured nose. After the swelling has subsided after the All-Star break, he will see a specialist further assess his condition.

A former catcher, Ausmus said Major League Baseball should consider suspending Marisnick for the hit on Lucroy.Joe Torre, Major League Baseball’s chief baseball officer, told the Houston Chronicle on Monday that his office is “still having conversations” about discipline.At least one catcher came out strongly in favor of disciplining Marisnick. Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina wrote in a profanity-laced Instagram post that baseball “need(s) to take action.” Molina’s opinion, however, was not shared by the players asked about it during the All-Star media day on Monday.“If your question is whether it’s a dirty play or not, I don’t think so,” Grandal said.

I’ve been there, where you’re going full speed, it happens so fast there’s no way you can avoid it.”Alex Bregman, who is obviously biased as Marisnick’s teammate, said the Astros are hoping that Lucroy will be OK.“We love competing against Lucroy,” Bregman said. “He’s a great player. We hope he recovers ASAP. In no way, shape or form did Jake try to make a dirty play. Would he ever try to make a dirty play? That’s a no. At the end of the day, there should be zero suspension.” Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Realmuto, who knows Marisnick from their days together in the Miami Marlins farm system, said he didn’t believe there was any malicious intent.Related Articles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield last_img read more
