  • Father of Honduran girl whose devastated face shocked America says she is with her mother in Texas

    Golocal247.com news

    The father of the little girl on the US-Mexico border, whose distraught face came to symbolise the plight of families separated by the Trump administration, has said that his daughter and wife are together, and doing well.   Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that his two-year-old daughter Yanela was with his wife Sandra in a shelter. Mr Varela Hernandez, a ship’s captain from Puerto Cortes, Honduras, said he had not spoken to his them, but was informed on Wednesday that they were in custody in Texas. “My heart broke because it's my little girl,” he told Spanish language network Univision.  “The first time I said that's my little girl when I saw the report. “Of course I cried, it's really hard. I can imagine that my wife was very fearful crossing the border because she took the decision.” Mr Varela Hernandez said he had urged his 32-year-old wife not to make the journey. On the journey to the US, the girl was photographed crying while her mother was searched, and she has been featured on the cover of this week's Time magazine. TIME’s new cover: A reckoning after Trump's border separation policy: What kind of country are we? https://t.co/U4Uf8bffoRpic.twitter.com/sBCMdHuPGc— TIME (@TIME) June 21, 2018 But, he told DailyMail.com, she had repeatedly said she wanted to go to the US for a “better future” and seek work, and left their Honduran hometown without telling him or any of their family members. “I didn't support it. I asked her, why? Why would she want to put our little girl through that?” he told the website.  “But it was her decision at the end of the day.” Mr Varela Hernandez said his wife set out with their child on June 3, at 6am, and he had not heard from her since. “I never got the chance to say goodbye to my daughter and now all I can do is wait,” he said, adding that he hopes they are either granted political asylum or are sent back home.

Credit: Getty “I don't have any resentment for my wife, but I do think it was irresponsible of her to take the baby with her in her arms because we don't know what could happen.” The couple has three other children, son Wesly, 14, and daughters Cindy, 11, and Brianna, six.   “The kids see what's happening,” he told the site. “They're a little worried but I don't try to bring it up that much. They know their mother and sister are safe now.”   Mr Varela Hernandez said he heard from friends that his wife paid $6,000 (£4,500) to a people smuggler to help her and Yarela across the border.  Protests against the Trump administration's policy of separating children from their parents, which Mr Trump ended on Wednesday Credit: Reuters “I wouldn't risk my life for it,” he said.  “It's hard to find a good job here and that's why many people choose to leave. But I thank God that I have a good job here. And I would never risk my life making that journey.” He said Mr Trump’s policy of separating children from their parents was cruel. “I've never seen it in a positive light the way others do. It violates human rights and children's rights. Separating children from their parents is just wrong. They are suffering and are traumatised,” he said. “The laws need to be modified and we need to have a conversation. It's just not right.   “Immigration and drug smuggling across the United States border is never going to stop. They can build a wall and it's never going to stop.”

It cited recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions that mandatory life sentences without parole for juveniles were unconstitutional, and that this rule applied retroactively. "We make this ruling not with any satisfaction, but to sustain the law," Circuit Judge Paul Niemeyer wrote for a three-judge panel of the Richmond, Virginia-based appeals court.

Children held at facilities such as the Shiloh Treatment Center in Texas are almost certain to be administered the drugs, irrespective of their condition, and without their parents' consent, according to the lawsuit filed by the Los Angeles-based Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law.

  • Mystery extinct ape discovered in ancient Chinese imperial tomb 

    Golocal247.com news

    An entirely new species of ape has been discovered buried in an ancient tomb in central China. The remains of the now-extinct gibbon, which researchers have named Junzi imperialis, were found in a burial chamber in Shaanxi Province that dates back around 2,300 years. Researchers believe it may be the first ape species to have perished as a direct result of human activities such as hunting. “All of the world’s apes - chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and gibbons - are threatened with extinction today due to human activities, but no ape species were thought to have become extinct as a result of historic hunting or habitat loss,” note scientists at the Zoological Society of London, who led the research. “However, the discovery of the recently extinct Junzi changes this, and highlights the vulnerability of gibbons in particular.” The skull of the extinct Junzi gibbon Credit: ZSL The Junzi are believed to have completely died out less than 300 years ago and could be one of a number of now-extinct gibbon species that once inhabited central China. Lead author Dr Samuel Turvey said the discovery suggests we are currently “underestimating the impact of humans on primate diversity”. “These findings reveal the importance of using historical archives such as the archaeological record to inform our understanding of conservation and stress the need for greater international collaboration to protect surviving populations of gibbons in the wild,” he added. A cranial reconstruction of the Junzi gibbon  Credit: ZSL The partial cranium and lower jawbone of the ape were found in the burial chamber believed to belong to Lady Xia, the grandmother of China’s first emperor, Qin Shihuang, who ordered the building of the Great Wall of China and the Terracotta Army sculptures. First excavated in 2004, the tomb contained 12 burial pits that contained animal remains, including leopards, lynx and black bears. Archaeologist Hu Songmei, of the Shaanxi institute, told Science that imperial Chinese burial chambers were commonly arranged in this manner so that the departed could “continue to enjoy the life they knew” in the afterlife. The Junzi gibbon was discovered in an ancient Chinese imperial tomb Credit:  ZSL Gibbons were also regarded as high-status pets and considered to be wise and noble animals during the period of Emperor Qin’s rule up until 210 BC. Today, gibbons are the most endangered of all the ape species due to a loss of their forest habitat, the illegal wildlife trade, the use of their body parts in Chinese medicines and poaching, according to the WWF. The world's most endangered species The Hainan gibbon, found on Hainan Island in southern China, is considered to be the world's rarest mammal, with only 26 still in existence. The full research has been published in the peer-reviewed journal Science.

  • Malaysia reopens probe into Mongolian model's murder as pressure builds on former premier Najib Razak

    Golocal247.com news

    The Malaysian police are set to reopen an investigation into the murder of a Mongolian model in 2006, in a politically charged case that could add to the woes of Najib Razak, the beleaguered former prime minister.  Altantuya Shaariibuu, 28, was killed and blown up with military grade explosives in a forest near the capital, Kuala Lumpur, after being kidnapped late at night outside the home of her alleged lover Abdul Razak Baginda - a defence analyst who advised Mr Najib between 2000 and 2008.  Two former police officers, Sirul Azhar Umar and Azilah Hadri, were sentenced to death for the crime but reports have alleged that they served as bodyguards for Mr Najib, who was deputy prime minister at the time of her gruesome death.  Sirul fled to Australia to seek asylum and is currently being held at a detention centre in Sydney.  Malaysia's Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad meets Dr Shaariibuu Setev, father of Altantuya Shaariibuu on Wednesday Credit: Malaysian PM The police confirmed to The Star newspaper that they were reopening their investigations after Shaaribuu’s father flew to Malaysia from Mongolia to file a fresh statement.  Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s prime minister, who ousted Mr Najib in a shock election result in May, pledged his support for Setev Shaaribuu’s case “if there is new evidence”, after meeting with him on Wednesday evening, reported Channel News Asia.  Mr Shaaribuu has alleged that the former government tried to block the truth from emerging, and that the true plot behind his daughter’s murder was covered up.  Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and his wife Rosmah Mansor are facing a corruption probe Credit: Mohd Rasfan/AFP In his statement to the police, he named a former aide to Mr Najib as a “crucial witness.” Mr Najib himself has always denied knowing the victim.  However, the timing of the case could spell more trouble for the ousted leader, who is currently banned from leaving the country amid another investigation into an alleged multi-billion dollar corruption scandal involving the 1Malaysia Development Berhad state fund, that he earlier founded.  In claims made to Reuters on Tuesday Dr Mahathir said that the authorities have “an almost perfect case” against Mr Najib on charges of embezzlement, misappropriation and bribery linked to 1MDB.  Mr Najib responded in his first interview since his stunning election defeat, telling the news agency that he knew nothing about money from the state fund appearing in his personal bank account.  He claimed his advisors and the management and board of 1MDB had wrongly kept the embezzlement of funds a secret from him.  Public anger over the scandal, which US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has described as “kleptocracy at its worst”, was a significant factor in his election defeat. Malaysian police seize a huge haul of handbags belonging to Najib Razak's wife Credit: Ariffin Jamar/AFP Mr Najib insisted in the interview that he did not know if hundreds of millions of dollars that moved through his personal account was from 1MDB, and if money from the fund was eventually laundered to acquire assets globally, including yachts, paintings and jewellery.  He did shed some light, however, on the origin of dozens of luxury bags that were recently seized by the police from properties linked to his family.  The handbags were gifts and wedding presents to his wife and daughter, and had nothing to do with 1MDB, he said.  “These were gifts, particularly with my daughter’s they were tagged, they were actually labelled: when, by whom,” he said.  He added that his son-in-law, Daniyar Nazarbayev, the nephew of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the Kazakh president, also gifted many bags to Rosmah Mansor, Mr Najib’s wife.  “People might find it hard to understand, but my son-in-law for example, he gets Birkin from his source, five or six at one go,” he said. “His family has got some means, so it has nothing to do with 1MDB if it comes from Kazakhstan.”
