UK advocate general to sue over Brexit termination

first_imgThe UK’s sole remaining representative at the European Court of Justice is taking legal action over a decision to terminate her appointment early because of Brexit. Belgian newspaper La Libre reported on Wednesday that Eleanor Sharpston QC, an advocate general who sits with the court and delivers advance opinions to help the judges decide difficult cases, has lodged two claims. Legal commentator Joshua Rozenberg, who revealed the possibility of action in the Gazette earlier this year, said that the newspaper’s report had been independently verified.  Sharpston: ‘Last service I can render’By law, the post of advocate general is not attached to any particular member state and Sharpston, unlike the UK judges in the Luxembourg court, kept her job when the UK left the EU. However the EU’s 27 member states issued a declaration on 29 January that Sharpston’s mandate would terminate two days later. The court’s president, Koen Lenaerts, wrote a letter to the Council of the EU declaring a vacancy from 1 February.Sharpston has now lodged two claims at the EU’s General Court, whose responsibilities include staffing matters. She argues that the assertions made by the EU 27 and in the president’s letter are unlawful because they bypass safeguards contained in the court’s statute, which is primary EU law. That says the mandate of a serving member can be terminated only by the court itself for specific, mainly disciplinary, reasons. Sharpston told Rozenberg in February: ‘It may be that the very last service I can render to my court is to see whether there is something I can do to push back against the member states intruding into the court’s autonomy and independence.’last_img read more

Self-service scanning

first_imgUK: As its mobile ticketing project gains in popularity, Chiltern Railways has installed two scanning devices on ticket gates at London’s Marylebone station to allow passengers to validate tickets carried as barcodes on their phones.Chiltern says its three-month trial of mobile ticketing (RG 1.07 p31) has proved a great success, and the operator is looking at ways to develop the technology further in conjunction with suppliers YourRail, Mobiqa and The gate scanners were supplied by Cubic Transportation Systems, which already supplies gate readers for Transport for London’s Oyster smart cards. Passengers can use the barcode readers to access the platforms, rather than having a member of the station staff scan barcodes for them to open the gates, as was the case during the initial trial. Mobile ticketing can only be used in conjunction with Chiltern’s E-Day online advance-purchase ticket.last_img

DR Congo rolls out new Johnson & Johnson Ebola vaccine

first_imgPhoto courtesy: REUTERS Health authorities in eastern Congo have introduced a new Ebola vaccine produced by Johnson & Johnson, aid group MSF said on Thursday, to help combat the world’s second-worst outbreak of the virus on record.New tools including vaccines have helped contain the outbreak, second only to the 2013-16 West African outbreak that killed more than 11,300, despite public mistrust and conflict affecting the response in parts of the region.The new vaccine, which has passed clinical trials but has never been tested in a real-world setting, will be administered to 50,000 people in Goma, a city of two million on the Rwandan border, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said in a statement.The vaccine, which requires two injections eight weeks apart, will be rolled out alongside another manufactured by Merck, which only requires a single shot. The Merck vaccine has been administered to over 250,000 people since the start of the outbreak in August 2018.“The introduction of a second vaccine is not meant to replace [Merck’s] vaccine, but to complement it and hopefully provide us with an additional tool in the fight against future Ebola outbreaks,” said John Johnson, who is leading the project for MSF.Congo’s epidemic has infected over 3,000 people and killed nearly 2,200 people, however the number of reported new infections has fallen steeply since June.The Merck shot is being deployed in a strategy known as “ring vaccination”, which aims to control Ebola by identifying and offering the vaccine to contacts of those likely to be infected.The plan with the addition of the J&J vaccine is to extend protection by providing it to “targeted at-risk populations” in areas where the disease is not yet being actively transmitted, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).Four cases of the disease were recorded in Goma this year, but no new cases have been reported in the lakeside city since August.Some Congolese health officials have criticised the J&J vaccine on the grounds that it has not been properly tested, although it has passed phase I and II clinical trials, and been endorsed by the WHO.Related The first shipment of the new Ebola vaccine arrives in DR Congo DR Congo to start using Johnson & Johnson Ebola vaccine next monthcenter_img DR Congo to deploy second Ebola vaccinelast_img read more

Cleveland Indians and Mike Napoli have mutual interest in extension

first_imgOnce the Indians season is over and the offseason begins, fans will begin to have some concern. Mike Napoli and the Cleveland Indians have yet to agree on an extension for the future, thankfully both sides are willing to talk about an extension once the offseason begins.Buster Olney reports that Mike Napoli and the Cleveland Indians are interested in seeing if they can work on an extension.Olney had this to say about Mike Napoli and a possible extension:“Napoli loves playing with the Indians and would love to stay, and the Indians love his production and leadership, not necessarily in that order. They also love his subtle competitiveness, which was evident early in the season. Napoli has a great respect for his manager, Terry Francona, and has a positive relationship with him.”Napoli,34, signed a 1 year, $7 million deal with the Indians this past offseason. Napoli had a team high of 101 RBIs during the regular season , and was tied with Carlos Santana with 34 homers this season for the team high.If Napoli and the Indians do not come to an agreement for an extension , Napoli would become a free agent.If Napoli becomes a free agent he would be out there with fellow sluggers Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista, Mark Trumbo, Matt Holliday, Pedro Alvarez, and many more. With this list of sluggers on the market , Napoli would not have as much leverage as he would if the list were much more slim.It would be beneficial to both the Indians and Napoli if both sides came to an agreement on an extension.
