A grandfather donned a mask and gloves before he fired ten shots at his son-in-law in a carefully planned daylight ambush at his home, a court has heard. 

William Terence ‘Bill’ Murrell, 73, was allegedly trying to kill Mirko Uskovic, 50, who was struck in the neck with the first round of a volley of gunfire. 

Murrell had allegedly conducted a ‘dry run’ of his plans a day before the November 12 attack outside Mr Uskovic’s home at Wahroonga on Sydney’s upper north shore. 

Mr Uskovic, a part-time window cleaner who is separated from Murrell’s daughter Danielle, was due to move out of the former marital home on the day of the shooting.

Press review: Lavrov’s meeting with Lukashenko and Pashinyan’s martial law gamble – Press Review

 

Nezavisimaya Gazeta: Kremlin pushing Lukashenko towards constitutional reform

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov visited Minsk and met with President Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus. Officially, the main topics of the talks between Lavrov and Lukashenko were trade and economic cooperation, as well as cooperation within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). However, according to Nezavisimaya Gazeta, the Russian leadership reminded Lukashenko that the Sochi agreements must be fulfilled. At the same time, the public is only guessing their content. Experts believe that Moscow is persuading Lukashenko to transfer power, and plans to discuss deep integration with a new head of state.

Indeed, the first words from Lavrov during the meeting were about the agreements in Sochi. These agreements were not officially announced, however, based on insiders and public statements by officials, experts assumed that Lukashenko had promised Putin “deeper integration” and a peaceful transition of power. “Lukashenko is not

Armenian parliament votes against lifting martial law imposed over hostilities in Karabakh

The Armenian parliament on Thursday, November 26 rejected the initiative to lift the martial law in the country, which was imposed on September 27 after fighting with Azerbaijan broke out in the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region. The lifting of the martial law was opposed by the ruling faction of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. It received only 36 votes in favour, while 56 voted against it. Earlier on November 26, protesters had gathered outside the Armenian parliament demanding the revocation of the martial law.

The lifting of the martial law would have given the opposition forces a chance to initiate the resignation process against Pashinyan, who is facing a lot of criticism after Armenia ceded territories to Azerbaijan in the Russia-brokered peace agreement that stopped the month-long fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh. Pashinyan oversaw the return of thousands of families from

Parliament Majority Blocks Opposition Bid To Lift Martial Law

Martial law allowed the Armenian government to call a nationwide mobilization of army reservists and restrict some civil liberties, including the freedom of assembly and speech.

The two opposition parties represented in the Armenian parliament say these restrictions are no longer necessary after a Russian-brokered ceasefire that stopped the bloody war on November 10.

“These restrictions apply to the foundations of democracy … They are also having negative economic consequences,” said Gevorg Gorgisian of the Bright Armenia Party (LHK).

The Armenian government and the parliament’s pro-government majority spoke out against a relevant opposition bill presented by Gorgisian. They said that martial law is still needed for the ongoing redeployment of Armenian army units along Armenia’s border with four districts west of Karabakh handed over to Azerbaijan as a result of the war and the truce agreement.

“We are talking about the country’s security and protection of its borders. The introduction

Armenian parliament votes against lifting martial law – World

YEREVAN, November 26./TASS/. At an emergency session on Thursday, the Armenian parliament refused to lift martial law in the country, imposed on September 27 over hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. The session was broadcast by local TV channels.

“Thirty-six parliamentarians voted for the lifting of the marital law, while 56 voted against. The motion is not passed,” Vice Speaker Alen Simonyan announced.

The factions of the opposition Prosperous Armenia and Bright Armenia parties initiated discussion in the parliament, since they believe martial law in the country is used by the government to prevent rallies urging the resignation of Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan.

The Armenian Defense Ministry maintains that after the joint statement from the Russian, Armenian and Azerbaijani leaders on cessation of hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenia and Azerbaijan have got new borders and martial law must be extended to protect them.

On November 9, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev

Yerevan [Armenia], November 26 (ANI/Sputnik): A protest is underway near the parliament building in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan with demonstrators demanding that the martial law introduced in the wake of Nagorno-Karabakh hostilities be revoked, a Sputnik correspondent reported on Thursday.

The protest has been peaceful so far.
Armenian opposition lawmakers are determined to call an extraordinary parliament session to discuss the termination of the martial law imposed on September 27 when the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh began. Protesters now demand that pro-government lawmakers show up at the session to ensure a quorum necessary to initiate return to normal civilian rule.
As long as a martial law remains in effect, lawmakers cannot initiate the process of removing from power Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, whom they blame for signing a ceasefire statement on what they call unfavorable terms.
The ceasefire statement was signed by the leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia on

Thai PM insists martial law will not be used against protesters

Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha says he has no intention of resorting to martial law to put an end to the current political unrest, adding that existing laws provide enough scope for dealing with those who take matters into their own hand. The Bangkok Post reports that he was responding to reporters following a US-ASEAN Business Council meeting at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

“In a democratic world, I cannot get everyone to agree with me. All I can do is to find a way to move forward together to avoid problems in the future.”

The then General Prayut, head of the Thai army, made similar assurances in the latter stages of the Yingluck Shinawatra government before he led the NCPO in a bloodless military coup in May 2014.

Meanwhile, the Ratsadon (People’s Party) group says it’s planning to hold protests over the course of 5 days, without camping overnight. The
