Crown’s top lawyer fronts abuse commission


© Provided by Newsroom

This week marks a rare opportunity to hear from the country’s top lawyer about abuse in state care. David Williams reports

Una Jagose has a lot of explaining to do.

The Solicitor-General, who heads the Crown Law Office, will take the witness box today at the Abuse in Care Royal Commission. She will give evidence and be cross-examined over several days, the bookend to the Crown-witness-dominated second phase of the commission’s ‘state redress’ hearing.

In the first phase, survivors of abuse in care gave powerful evidence about civil claims taken against the state. For decades they fought to be believed, to have their attackers held to account, and receive fair compensation. At the Royal Commission hearings, they saved some special anger at the state’s legal tactics.

Take the example of a man – known by the pseudonym Earl

Is California’s most progressive district attorney a Republican?

San Joaquin County District Attorney Tori Salazar discusses her support of a proposed measure that would seal past arrest records and convictions of lower-level felonies and misdemeanors, during a news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Monday, Feb. 24, 2020. If approved by the legislature and signed by the governor the bill, by Assemblyman Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, left, would automatically clear eligible records dating back to 1973. Supporters say the bill to seal past arrest histories would help lower the barriers to finding work or housing.

This is the second in a series of articles about the Los Angeles County district attorney’s race.

Five minutes into my meeting with the district attorney of San Joaquin County, I found myself asking a question to which I already knew the answer. But I couldn’t help myself.

“But wait,” I said. “You’re a Republican, right?”

I had gone to Stockton, in the Central Valley about an hour and a half’s drive east of San Francisco) to speak with Dist. Atty. Tori Verber Salazar in an effort to figure out what a “progressive prosecutor” is. That overused term has become a feature of the current Los Angeles County contest between incumbent

Prince Philip ‘disappointed’ with Prince Charles’s marital failure: report

Prince Philip ‘disappointed’ with Prince Charles’s marital failure: report

Prince Philip has always been praised for his loyalty towards his wife Queen Elizabeth, and in light of his feelings towards the monarch, the prince has always held his family to high standards.

However, once when Prince Charles failed to effectively contain private findings regarding his marriage to Princess Diana, the prince consort sprang into action with deep ‘disappointment’ in his heart. 

The Queen’s former press secretary Dickie Arbiter spoke about the young prince’s disappointing action on Chanel 5’s Philip: The King Without Crown. Reportedly, “Philip being a dad and being a father-in-law, he would have been pretty disappointed because he and the Queen believe in the sanctity of marriage.”

“There was disappointment that this great expectation of 1981, this mammoth wedding which everybody viewed as a fairytale wedding, should suddenly crumble.”

Glynis Barber, the narrator of the documentary explained, “As

Barrister disbarred for divorce case deception | News

A barrister who deliberately attempted to deceive the court during divorce proceedings has been disbarred by a disciplinary tribunal.

Ehi Ukiwa, who was called to the bar in 2010, was found to have engaged in conduct that was dishonest or otherwise discreditable to a barrister; prejudicial to the administration of justice; and likely to diminish public confidence in the legal profession or the administration of justice, or otherwise bring the legal profession into disrepute.

The tribunals’ decision comes after a county court judge found that Ukiwa had deliberately, and in an attempt to deceive the court, wrongly stated the address of an individual during divorce proceedings in 2013. He did this knowing that they had no connection with that address, and that someone else at that address would complete and return the acknowledgement of service with the intention of obtaining a divorce fraudulently.

The tribunal also found that Ukiwa failed
