US changing its policy with or without Cuba

first_imgRelated posts:Obama, Castro hail ‘new day’ for US-Cuba relations Bolivia’s Evo Morales: Obama should lift the embargo and return Guantánamo Naval base to Cuba Obama administration to further ease travel and business restrictions with Cuba US opens greater channels for trade, air links with Cuba U.S. President Barack Obama’svisit to Cuba reflects a new way of formulating and implementing U.S. policy toward Cuba. This new policy is different not only from the sanctions that had been the long-standing U.S. policy toward Cuba but also from the policies suggested by the leading U.S. presidential candidates. Obama’s new policy toward Cuba starts from a different premise that the United States will make decisions that reflect its values and its interests, independent of what the Cuban government may or may not do.They key to the future of the bilateral relationship, therefore, is whether the government of Cuba will or will not decide to take advantage of Obama’s initiatives. For example, the United States has authorized the direct delivery of mail and the normal functioning of regularly scheduled civil aviation flights between Cuban and U.S. airports. Cuba has decided to agree, and therefore these changes are being implemented. In these instances, the U.S. decision was not preconditioned on Cuba changing its policy, but obviously the change is useful for both sides only if the two governments concur on its utility.Similarly, the United States has authorized important changes that would facilitate universal access to the Internet by ordinary Cubans. The U.S. government now permits trips to Cuba for any rubric of “mental tourism” (education, the arts, religion, journalism, etc.), that is, pretty much everything other than going to the beach. Beach tourism may only be authorized by an Act of Congress. Above all, the United States has now lifted economic sanctions on the new Cuban private sector, permitting trade relations between private entities in both countries. None of these policies had been preconditioned on Cuba changing its policies.These other U.S. decisions will be useful for Cubans only if the Cuban government were to decide to make use of these opportunities. Will it permit any Cuban to access the Internet to read about any topic on any webpage? Will Cuba’s official statistical agency recognize that the United States is already the second most important source of international visitors to Cuba, or will it continue to hide this fact, counting the Cuban-Americans separately as Cubans and including all other U.S. visitors in a category called “Others?” Why is it statistically unmentionable that tourism relations have improved between the United States and Cuba? Will the Cuban government stop “blockading” itself or, more precisely, stop preventing Cuban microenterprises and peasant cooperatives to export to or import from the United States – a business relationship that the United States has already authorized?Obama has thus lifted the embargo on the flow of ideas and citizens, and increasingly on goods and services, between the two countries. Hitherto, U.S. policy had cooperated with Cuban State Security, albeit inadvertently, in blocking access to such sources of information. A politically more open Cuba needs such access.Obama also modeled, subtly but clearly, a way to be the president of a country. He handled himself nimbly and skillfully at a press conference that his Cuban host bungled. Obama had edged Raúl Castro to a press conference state, to which he is most unaccustomed.Obama also reminded Cubans, by his looks and words, that the United States has an African-American as president, while Cuba, with a much larger fraction of its population being Afro-Cuban, does not. He noted in his speech, broadcast nationwide on Cuban radio and television, that two Cuban-Americans have been leading U.S. presidential candidates. And he showed that it is fine for a president to display a sense of humor, through his interview with Cuba’s leading television comedian, contrasting with a humorless Cuban leadership.Ultimately, the success of the trip will be visible only in the future, most likely after Raúl Castro steps down as president in 2018. But, during his Roman Catholic Holy Week visit to Havana, the president of the United States seemed to have become Saint Obama, even in the words of Cubans reported by Granma, the communist party newspaper.Obama has shown a new way to design his policy toward Cuba. Will Cuba design a new policy toward the United States?Jorge I.

Malaysia buries Rohingya humantrafficking victims

first_img KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysian authorities Monday gave a Muslim burial to 21 human trafficking victims, believed to be Rohingya Muslim refugees, found in shallow graves in jungles bordering Thailand.The 21 were among 106 bodies found last month in 28 jungle camps in northern Perlis state, a remote area bordering Thailand that trafficking syndicates used as a transit point to hold migrants and refugees. Most were believed to be from Myanmar’s persecuted Rohingya minority and impoverished migrants from Bangladesh. The victims were buried in a village ceremony in neighboring Kedah state, with Islamic officials performing burial rites.Kedah Chief Minister Mukhriz Mahathir said investigations showed the victims died of starvation and illness.The bodies of 19 men were placed in simple wooden coffins each and buried together in a huge grave, while the bodies of two women were laid to rest in an adjacent grave, he said.The bodies of the other victims will be buried once autopsies are completed, he said.The discoveries in northern Malaysia followed similar revelations earlier May in Thailand, where police unearthed 36 bodies from shallow graves in seven abandoned camps on the Thai side of the border.The discoveries have exposed hidden networks of jungle camps run by human smugglers, who have for years held countless desperate people captive while extorting ransoms from their families. Most of the victims were part of a wave of people who fled their homelands to reach countries like Malaysia, where they hoped to find work or live freely.Human rights groups and activists say the area along the Thai-Malaysia border has been used for years to smuggle migrants and refugees, including Rohingya Muslims.

Minister and BJP in the wake of Dadri beef lynching Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday alleged that they have a "strategy" to polarise the country by pitting Hindus and Muslims against each other as he remarked that Narendra Modi has a "history" Rahul Gandhi alleged BJP leaders were involved in the Dadri lynching incident PTI "The BJP and the Prime Minister have a strategy of polarising this country They have a strategy of making Hindus and Muslims fight against each other "You can see that in every election polarisation taking place riots taking place There were BJP people involved in the Dadri incident" the Congress vice president alleged while talking to reporters here Dismissing the Prime Minister’s pitch yesterday for communal harmony he said that while it was very nice of Modi to make such comments "the Prime Minister has a history and the PM has a party that is behaving in a completely different way which he doesn’t seem to want to stop" Modi had on Thursday pitched for communal harmony saying Hindus and Muslims should not fight each other but together fight poverty Gandhi who is on a two-day visit of party-ruled state during which he will meet farmers affected by drought and other agricultural problems also accused the Centre of neglecting farmers’ interests "The central government does not think that agriculture or the farmer is important Whether it is the issue of Minimum Support Price (MSP) or crops being destroyed by bad weather the government does not seem to have a strategy It does not give priority to farmers" he said Ruing that farmers are committing suicide in large numbers he insisted the central government needs to do something about it "The Prime Minister has to take a look at it and help the farmers of the country" he said Contrasting the functioning of the previous UPA government with that of the present dispensation Gandhi said the Congress-led government had given a loan waiver of Rs 70000 crore to the farmers He will also undertake a ‘padyatra’ on Saturday and hold interactions with farmers students and women workers in Haveri district Gandhi is holding interactions with sugarcane cultivators and farmers from Mandya and nearby areas "I visited the families of those who committed suicide The reality is that there is an agricultural crisis in the country It is very important that the farmer who gives his life for the country and works for the country is supported "We had discussions with the chief minister and other ministers and have some ideas as to what we are going to do which will be announced by the chief minister tomorrow" he said Further targeting the Centre he said that "the sad part is that the support which the central government should give to the state is missing" "The state has made demands which the central government is not taking seriously The central government does not think that agriculture or farmer is important This is very unfortunate" he said Claiming that when UPA was in the government it did not view farmers "as Karnataka Bihar or Jharkhand farmers" he alleged "The BJP government views different states differently If the state is controlled by them they have a different idea if not they have a different idea It is very sad The people who are suffering are all Indian people The issue is how sensitive you are to farmers "They are struggling When the Congress government was in power we supported them We helped them with Rs 70000 crore loan waiver we maintained an MSP we ensured whatever trouble they were going through they felt they were supported by the government That is what is lacking in this government" Gandhi said He also took a swipe at Modi’s foreign visits "Our PM goes everywhere he goes to US may be he should spend sometime with the farmers of this country and Karnataka" he said Meanwhile in reference to the upcoming Bihar Assembly polls which Congress is contesting as part of an alliance with RJD and JD(U) Gandhi dismissed suggestions that RJD chief Lalu Prasad did not want to share the dais with him at campaign rallies "There is no such thing" he said PTI Attorney General ofIndia Mukul Rohatgi informed the Supreme Court on Wednesday that Indian citizens cannot claim an "absolute right" over their biometric data and refuse to apply for Aadhaar cards To support this contention Rohatgireferred to various laws such as breathalyser tests finger printing during property registration medical termination of pregnancy and also laws that prohibit the commission of suicide as pointing to the fact that there exists no absolute right over one’s body under the Constitution This comes at a time while the apex court is hearing arguments challenging the validity of Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act 1961 that makes it mandatory to link Permanent Account Number (PAN) with Aadhaar In an earlier hearing on the validity of the UID programme in 2015 the attorney general had informed the court that the question of privacy being a fundamental right under the Constitution needs to be revised as there seemed to be conflicting judgments on this issue Biometric data being collated for Aadhaar Reuters file image The attorney general is not just the top law officer of the Government of India but also functions as an Attorney to the Union of India Therefore the views expressed by himare not merely propositions of law but also reflect the official view taken by the central government on the point Which is where it gets very problematic: The Government of India feels that Indian citizens do not have an absolute right to their own biometric data The government’s proposition if taken at face value would imply that the Centrecould lawfully do as it pleased with the biometric data of an individual and would no longer have to hold it in trust for a particular purpose; assuming it was allowed to hold the data at all To put it bluntly if there is an individual’s right to one’s biometric data then the government will have to establish compelling reasons to take that data and would have to hold it in trust If there is no right to the data then the government can do what it likes with it Which is why it is quite strange that the proposition advanced by the government is that there is only a limited right over one’s body rather than a proposition that there is a right and the right can be restricted under particular circumstances The position of the government of course has consequences the first of them being that it carries with it a presumption of criminality that is cast upon every person presently in possession of a PAN card The government’s justification for linking the PAN card with the Aadhaar card is to remove duplicate PAN cards that are in circulation By linking the PAN with an iris and a fingerprint scan the government says it will be able to assign to each individual one unique identity that onecannot escape from To quote the Attorney General: "Even if you want to be forgotten the State is not willing to forget you" Which means that if there is a law abiding taxpayer who doesn’t have an Aadhaarcard in order to establish his innocence — ie prove to the government that he doesn’t have more than one PAN card — that person would have to go and surrender his biometric information to the State; and the government has just informed the Supreme Court that it can even ask the citizento do so as a matter of right This is different from the other cases in which one is required to give that information like a breathalyser where one is stopped upon suspicion of driving drunk or when one voluntarily goes to register property and fingerprints are recorded to ensure the authenticity of signature In this case all taxpayers have overnight become suspects of holding multiple PAN cards and are asked to come forward and prove their innocence by linking it with an Aadhaar card thereby surrendering their biometric information This is problematic for a government both politically and constitutionally Politically because it shows that the government doesn’t trust its own citizens and constitutionally because the implications of not having a right over one’s body can bemassive Let us say there is a glass of water at a public restaurant and you’ve just finished having lunch You pick up that glass with your handsand have a drink Once you’re done with it someone takes that glass of water and lifts your fingerprints from it and uploads them online for no malicious purpose; they just claim it’s part of a public art project where they are collating different fingerprints of people who eat at a particular restaurant If one did not have a right to privacy or a right over one’sbody then the uploader could get away with it If one thinks about it biometric information is left everywhere in the form of dead skin cells hair follicles nail clippings fingerprints etc Even most smartphones today requirebiometric information If the government says that individuals don’t have an absolute right to decide what they do with this information a foreign government can tomorrow request a phone company (that operates in both countries) to hand over the biometric data of an Indian citizen and there is not much that the company can do to prevent that from happening All of these problems are reasons why the UID project still needs a lot of thinking and a lot more privacy safeguards before it can effectively be implemented That’s also why the Supreme Court has made the process optional in the interim By attempting to make it mandatory and bypass the court’s ruling the government is aiming to get around confronting the real issues that are at stake here Issues of data security privacy fundamental freedom bodily autonomy and the fact that biometric information of the citizens of the world’s largest democracy is inservers of questionable security right now The Unique Identification Authority of India was established via the Aadhaar Act in 2016 but was initially constituted in 2009 as part of the Planning Commission Between 2009-2016 is when most people including this author signed up for Aadhaar voluntarily But that’s before the government officially told the Supreme Court that ourright to privacy needed to be revisited and that we didn’t have an absolute right over ourbodies A few days ago this author got an SMS (left) from the UADI saying that his Aadhaar was randomly selected for a biometric update He still hasn’t gone in for that update as so far it is not an offence for him to fail to update his Aadhaar biometrics However should the government’s proposition be upheld it could very well be possible that failing to update one’s Aadhaarcould become an offence The central government needs to seriously rethink its stance on this issue and come back to the court with a more reasonable argument It’s not just about winning a case it must realise that it is the government at the end of the day and it cannot afford to take positions that leave a billion citizens at risk By: Reuters | Auckland | Published: September 1 2017 5:40 pm Chris Wood scored a hat-trick as New Zealand drubbed the Solomon Islands 6-1 on Friday (Source: Twitter) Top News Captain Chris Wood scored a hat-trick as New Zealand drubbed the Solomon Islands 6-1 on Friday in the first leg of the final stage of Oceania qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia Wood scored twice in the first half while Kosta Babarouses gave the home side a 3-0 lead at the break before Solomons’ captain Henry Fa’arodo converted a second half penalty to give the visitors a potentially valuable away goal Ryan Thomas however re-established the three-goal cushion before Michael McGlinchey slotted a free kick past Phillip Mango Wood grabbed his hat-trick in added time to give New Zealand a comfortable advantage heading into the second leg in Honiara on September 5 The winner of the two-legged tie will meet the fifth-placed South American side currently two-times World Cup champions Argentina in an inter-continental playoff in November “I’m just pleased with the result and the way we applied ourselves” said Wood “We came out and produced a professional performance and it showed in the scoreline which was nice “It’s all about getting the result We need to do a professional job work from the back and take our chances when they come We could have had a few more but we are very pleased with what we have done” Wood who scored his first goal for English Premier League side Burnley last Sunday before jumping on a plane to New Zealand could have finished with four goals but for two brilliant saves from Phillip Mango The Solomons who had said they would defend deep to try to stop New Zealand from scoring heavily before they head to the tropical heat and humidity in Honiara rarely pushed past the midfield Their defensive tactic however failed as the All Whites stretched the play wide at every opportunity and then exploited the gaps with runs from midfield while the visitors made numerous errors in defence Wood’s first two goals came from defensive errors allowing him one-on-one opportunities with Mango in the 18th and 36th minutes while Babrarouses powered home New Zealand’s third in the 39th when Nelson Sale slipped over The visitors capitalised on one of their rare forays into New Zealand territory when Benjamin Totori earned a 52nd minute penalty that Fa’arodo calmly converted past Stefan Marinovic Thomas however exploited some more lax defending less than four minutes later before McGlinchey and Wood’s hat-trick goal virtually assured New Zealand of advancing to the inter-continental playoff For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New
