Some of New York’s sporting arenas could be able to offer betting to patrons, after legislation to legalise land-based and mobile betting was amended by authors, Senator Joseph Addabbo and Assemblymember Gary Pretlow. Email Address Regions: US New York Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Race Track and Racino Some of New York’s sporting arenas could be able to offer betting to patrons, after legislation to legalise land-based and mobile betting was amended by authors, Senator Joseph Addabbo and Assemblymember Gary Pretlow. Addabbo’s bill, S17, and Pretlow’s companion bill in the New York Assembly A6113 were amended yesterday (June 6) to significantly expand the outlets at which betting would be legal, should it pass into law.Both off-track betting (OTB) locations and New York Racing Association (NYRA) facilities would be allowed to offer mobile wagering via kiosks, per the amendment. These would be allowed to launch betting alongside New York State’s four upstate casinos. Facilities hosting video lottery terminals and racinos, however, would only be allowed to launch sports betting 12 months after the vertical goes live at the casinos, OTBs and NYRA outlets. The bill’s definition of affiliates to licensed sports betting operators has been amended to include sports arenas. This means casinos could partner stadia to offer sports betting. However, this would only be permitted if the county in which the stadium is located does not have an existing affiliate, such as an OTB, franchised gambling outlet, racetrack or VLT facility. Under these terms Madison Square Gardens on Manhattan, which has already trademarked is brand for gambling purposes, would be eligible.

Organisation Help by sharing this information April 28, 2009 – Updated on January 25, 2016 The trauma of journalists forced into exile Hundreds of journalists who had to flee into exile because they had been attacked or threatened are being given an opportunity by Reporters Without Borders to begin publishing their work again.Dozens of journalists silently flee their country every year, without being offered a platform to protest. Most are from Africa and the Middle East, especially Eritrea, Somalia, Iraq and Iran. Most of them have been the victims of reprisals by their government, or the targets of armed militias, organised crime, or political or religious movements. Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the extent of this problem, which highlights the decline in press freedom around the world. It is extremely dangerous for journalists to use their right to free expression in some countries. Violence is the enemy of press freedom. When journalists are forced into exile, their countries lose valuable independent observers of their political and social situation.Among the most painful blows for journalists forced to flee into exile is finding themselves reduced to silence and forgotten by those they used to address. For this reason, Reporters Without Borders is offering them a forum, a page on its website, where they can express their views, post articles and report on what has been happening to them.Providing these men and women, whose lives and freedom were in jeopardy, with a platform for the stories of their experiences, for their videos and for their reports from exile is the only way to restore their right to speak and the only way to prevent their exile from becoming a victory for the oppressors who wanted to silence them.Journalists under threat hold on until the last moment before fleeing. They leave in response to a need, to a survival instinct. When Roza Malsagova, the editor of the Ingushetiya.ru website, left on a 10-day trip to the Czech Republic, she did not suspect that she would not be returning home to Ingushetia, a republic in the Russian Caucasus adjoining Chechnya where the civilian population is exposed to an appalling level of violence. After the website’s owner, Magomed Yevloyev, was murdered while held by the security forces, Malsagova felt she had no choice but to ask France for asylum. Does exile at least offer protection? There are no guarantees. As well as losing their right to work as journalists, these refugees must face new dangers. The flight into exile can prove extremely unpleasant. In some countries such as Iran or Eritrea, fleeing abroad is regarded as treason. Crossing the border on foot, concealing oneself in someone’s vehicle, seeking refuge in a village, hiding from border guards – this is all part of the experience of going into exile.Protection is just one of the facets of exile. Others include the unbearable periods of waiting, the suffering that results from being uprooted, and sometimes even hunger. Many exiles find themselves in an extremely difficult situation, trapped in an extended exile without any prospect of being able to return home or integrate into the country that has offered them asylum.An Eritrean refugee journalist in the Sudanese capital described his feeling of despair to us. “I’ve been hiding for months in Khartoum, where I have rented a room, because there was less risk here of being kidnapped by the Eritrean security forces present in Sudan,” he said. “But I have no money and eating three meals a day has become a luxury. I have avoided imprisonment and the government’s wrath but this is the first time I have found myself in financial difficulty. I now feel trapped, far from home and facing unprecedented problems.”The luckiest, those who have overcome the thorny problems of visas and residence permits, experience the difficulties that all refugees face – starting from zero, reuniting with their family, finding accommodation, getting training, finding some kind of job and communicating with their new compatriots in the host country’s language. Each component of daily life is a challenge, a new test. A Syrian journalist who has found refuge in Europe said: “I am nothing here. I must restart from scratch, rebuild everything, even my own identity.” RSF_en News

The bench comprised by Justices Shashi Kant Gupta and Saurabh Shyam Shamshery observed that even though there is no law for appointment of guardians for a person in a comatose state, the court was obliged in its capacity as a ‘parens patriae’ to do justice to the Petitioner. “We cannot lose sight of the fact that we have been called upon to discharge ‘parens patriae’ jurisdiction. The Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India can pass orders and given directions as are necessary for subserving the ends of justice when no remedy is provided in any statute in respect to persons lying in comatose condition,” the court said. The court also called upon the Central Government to pass an appropriate legislation on this subject. Background The Petitioner had approached the High Court seeking to be appointed as the guardian of her husband to protect his interest, administer bank accounts, investments, proprietorship business, etc. and in the event of necessity, to sell the immovable property standing in the name of her husband and to use the proceeds towards medical treatment of her husband and family welfare expenses. It was submitted that the Petitioner’s husband had been in comatose state for past one and a half years and the Doctors’ had advised that he would remain so until his eventual demise. The Petitioner had thus sought to be appointed as her husband’s guardian to be able to cover the expenses of his treatment and nursing care, and that of her two daughters’ marriage. However, it was also admitted that unlike legislations for appointment of guardian for minors and persons with other disabilities or mental illnesses, there is now law to appoint a guardian for a person in coma state. In fact, such persons do not even fall within the purview of ‘person with multiple disabilities’ under the National Trust for the Welfare of Persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, and Multiple Disabilities Act, 1999. It was submitted that even the RBI guidelines, advising the Banks to accept Guardianship Certificates issued under National Trust Act, 1999 are not applicable in respect of a person lying in a comatose state. Findings The High Court observed that it could, in exercise of its powers under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, invoke the doctrine of Parens patriae and appoint the Petitioner as a Guardian of her husband. “In our opinion, in the present case this Court cannot shirk its responsibility when a distress call is given by a sinking family of a person lying in a comatose state for the past year and a half. The dominant factor, after all, is not enforcement of rights guaranteeing protection of life of warring parties under Article 226 of the Constitution but the protection of the rights of a human being lying in a comatose state under Article 21 of the Constitution of India,” the court observed. It relied on the decision of the Kerala High Court in the case of Shobha Gopalakrishnan & Ors. v. State of Kerala & Ors., (2019) SCC Online Ker 739, whereby a division bench appointed the legal heir of the victim as a guardian, recognizing the same to be a “SOS Call” of the victim’s “sinking family”. Reliance was also placed on the judgment of the Delhi High Court in the case of Vandana Tyagi v. Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi & Ors., (2020) SCC Online Del 32, which followed the suit. The division bench thus allowed the writ petition while clarifying that the Petitioner shall not sell, alienate encumber any of the immovable properties of her husband, except with the express permission of the Registrar General of this Court. Guidelines for appointment of guardian qua a person lying in a comatose The High Court observed that the guidelines framed by the Kerala High Court in the case of Shobha Gopalakrishnan (supra) with regard to appointment of guardian qua a person lying in a comatose state are “formidable”. The bench was of the opinion that the same can be used as “framework” for formulating guidelines that need to be implemented in the State of Uttar Pradesh till such time, the legislative enactments are framed and specific provisions are made. The High Court thus fixed the following norms/ guidelines as a temporary measure to be followed in the state, till an appropriate enactment is legislated for appointment of guardians vis-a-vis individuals lying in comatose state: “(i) A person(s) who seek(s) to be appointed as guardians vis-à-vis an individual, who is lying in comatose state, shall in their petition to the High Court (in short ‘Court’) disclose the details of all tangible and intangible assets of such an individual. The details as to their location and approximate market value shall also be disclosed. In case of bank accounts, stocks, shares, and debentures and other investments are concerned, material particulars will be provided. (ii) The Court will have the person lying in comatose examined by a duly constituted medical board which would include, inter alia, a neurologist. (iii) The court will also direct the concerned SDM/Tehsildar in whose jurisdiction the person lying in comatose is said to be located to carry out an enquiry to establish the veracity of the assertion and to gather material particulars concerning the person(s) who approach the court for being appointed as guardians. The enquiry will, inter alia, gather information as regards the relationship that the person(s) who wish to be appointed as guardians has/have with the person lying in comatose state. Information with regard to the financial condition of persons wanting to be appointed as guardians shall also be collected apart from other aspects which may have a material bearing in their discharging the duties of a guardian. Any conflict of interest concerning the affairs of the person lying in comatose state will be brought to fore in the report generated during the course of the enquiry. (iv) Ordinarily only that person will be appointed as guardian who is a spouse or a progeny of the person lying in comatose. The person seeking appointment as a guardian in his petition to the court will, however, disclose the particulars of all legal heirs of the person lying in comatose. In the event, the person lying in comatose has neither a spouse nor any children or even any legal heirs or if he/she has such persons in his life but stands abandoned by them subject to the permission of the court his next friend who wishes to be appointed as a guardian can approach the court with such a request. In the alternative, the Court could direct the Department of Social Welfare, GNCTD to appoint a public official such as a Social Welfare Officer or a person holding equivalent rank to act as the guardian of the person lying in comatose state. (v) Only that person shall be appointed as a guardian who is otherwise in law competent to act as a guardian. (vi) The order directing appointment of a guardian shall specify the assets qua which the guardianship order is passed. The court will be empowered to modify the order and bring within its sweep other assets, if required, in the interest of the person lying in comatose state. In case liquid funds are not available and there is a requirement to sell the assets of the person lying in comatose state, upon the guardian approaching the court, necessary directions could be passed in that behalf. (vii) The person appointed as a guardian will file every six (6) months (or within such period as the court may indicate in its order) a report with the Registrar General of this court. The report shall advert to the transactions undertaken by the guardian in respect of the assets of the person lying in comatose state. Besides this, the report shall also indicate the funds, if any, received by the guardian and their utilization for the purposes of maintaining the person lying in comatose state. (viii) The Registrar General of this court will cause a separate register to be maintained which will set out inter alia the details of the proceedings, the particulars of the person appointed as a guardian and orders, if any, passed after the appointment of the guardian. Measures will also be taken by the Registrar General to preserve the reports filed by the guardian from time to time. (ix) It will be open to the court to appoint a guardian either temporarily or for a limited period, as may be deemed fit. (x) In the event, the guardian appointed by the court misuses his/her power or misappropriates, siphons or misutilizes the assets of the person lying in comatose state or fails to utilize the assets in the best interest of the person lying in comatose state, the court would have the power to remove the guardian and appoint another person in his/her place. The substituted person could also be a public officer such as a Social Welfare Officer or an officer holding an equivalent rank. (xi) The guardian appointed by the court will ensure that the transactions entered into by him or her comport with the relevant provisions of the law. (xii) In case a relative or a next friend of the person lying in comatose state finds that the guardian is not acting in the best interest of the person lying in comatose state, such person will also have the locus to approach the court for issuance of appropriate directions and/or for removal of the guardian. (xii) In case, the guardian wishes to move the person lying in comatose state to another state or even to another country for the purposes of securing better medical treatment for the person lying in comatose state, he/she would approach the court for necessary permission before undertaking such an exercise.” Before parting, the division bench recommended the Central Government to consider enacting an appropriate legislation pertaining to appointment of guardians qua persons lying in a comatose state, as no remedy is provided in any statute to persons in comatose/ vegetative state, unlike legislations for appointment of guardians for minors and persons with other disabilities, including like mental retardation etc. “Registry is required to forward a copy of this judgment to the Secretary, Law, Ministry of Law and Justice, Government of India, for information and appropriate steps,” the court ordered.
