human trafficking

Police and prosecutors overreached by misusing a “sneak-and-peek” warrant meant to capture terrorists to arrest New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, legal experts told The Palm Beach Post in a weekend report.

Kraft was one of 25 men charged with soliciting prostitution after being caught on cameras inside the Orchids of Asia Day Spa in Jupiter, Florida paying two spa employees for sex, according to police reports.

The warrant was “completely uncalled for,” said John Wesley Hall, former president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, calling it “an abuse of prosecutorial power and an abuse of police power.”

Earlier this month, two judges threw out video evidence, ruling not enough was done to protect the privacy of “legitimate” customers of the spa, since the video recorded their activities even when they did nothing wrong.

In sneak-and-peek cases, police will often stage a hoax to prevent the target from realizing he is the subject of a search, as in the Orchids of Asia case, when authorities used the ruse of a suspicious package outside the spa to evacuate employees to install the hidden cameras.

Police said they did so, because there was strong circumstantial evidence the spas were part of an international human trafficking ring.

But University of Miami adjunct professor Celeste Higgins said “we have traditional ways to get warrants so police can investigate . . . There’s all sorts of techniques that are tried and true and well within the Constitution.”

Jupiter police have argued the hidden cameras were the only way to confirm prostitution was taking place, and a circuit judge granted the warrant days before the cameras recorded Kraft and the other customers.

The use of such warrants has risen dramatically, with judges issuing more than 14,000 in 2016 after granting only 75 requests in 2006.

President Donald Trump pledged to make an expedited appeal of a ruling by a federal judge in California that blocks him from building sections of his long-sought border wall with money secured under his declaration of a national emergency.

Trump, who is visiting Japan, tweeted Saturday: “Another activist Obama appointed judge has just ruled against us on a section of the Southern Wall that is already under construction. This is a ruling against Border Security and in favor of crime, drugs and human trafficking. We are asking for an expedited appeal!”

U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam Jr. on Friday immediately halted the administration’s efforts to redirect military-designated funds to build sections of wall on the Mexican border. His order applies to two planned projects to add 51 miles of fence in two areas.

Gilliam issued the ruling after hearing arguments last week in two cases. California and 19 other states brought one lawsuit; the Sierra Club and a coalition of communities along the border brought the other.

At stake is billions of dollars that would allow Trump to make progress on a signature campaign promise heading into his campaign for a second term.

YouTube has deleted commentator Lauren Southern’s much-anticipated documentary Borderless less than 24 hours after it was uploaded to the platform.

Before it was removed, Southern reported several difficulties in trying to make Borderless available.

“On release day the film wouldn’t play in the back end—so we uploaded another version. This version uploaded and processed, we could watch it and we set it to premiere. Suddenly the movie began to process again and stopped in time for the premiere,” Southern said.

“So when the time set for the premiere rolled around we waited and—nothing. Thirty minutes of ‘premiere starting shortly’ we hit publish. The film went live but wouldn’t show up on the channel, nor would it show up in people’s subscription area.”

“There were no notifications and when shared or added to lists the video would simply say ‘video deleted’. Video also has been stuck continually on 1 view and only available by searching ‘Borderless’ specifically or using the direct link,” she added.

YouTube hasn’t yet explained how exactly Borderless violates its terms of service.

The documentary follows Southern and her team into their investigation of Europe’s migrant crisis, covering human traffickers and illicit NGO activity used to exploit Europe’s open borders.

“[Borderless is] a completely fair, reasonable and balanced movie highlighting human trafficking and people smuggling on the ground in 9 countries. It could be argued this is the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the issue. No ‘hate speech’, no opinions, just raw footage from on the ground. And it was taken down,” Southern said.

This latest censorship move by YouTube shows that even measured and thorough investigative journalism isn’t safe from Big Tech’s fascist social engineers.

By Bushra Shakhshir

BAGHDAD (Reuters) – On a studio set in Baghdad, a director watches the star of his TV series hold a knife against the neck of a fellow actor, in a dramatic revival of fortunes for Iraq’s entertainment industry.

Filmed in Iraq where the entertainment industry has been battered by conflict, “The Hotel” unfolds in a run-down hostel owned by a novelist who records the lives of his guests as they struggle against violence or become caught up in romance.

Made on a small budget, the series of daily shows has been airing during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, when families and friends across the Middle East often gather around televisions after breaking the day’s fast with an evening meal.

The series tackles sensitive issues of prostitution, drug use and human trafficking, topics that drew censure from some lawmakers and members of the public in the religiously conservative country.

As a result, some racier scenes have been cut.

But Ali Jaafar al-Saadi, one of the show’s producers, makes no apology for the subject matter. “Art in my opinion never solves issues, but it sheds light on certain problems in society,” he told Reuters.

Those behind the production see it as part of a slow recovery of Iraq’s film and entertainment industry, which crumbled after the 2003 U.S-led invasion and in the years of conflict since then.

Hassan Husni, a former actor who directed the show, said working on the series fulfilled a dream. “People were eagerly awaiting the return of Iraqi drama. This opens the door,” he said.

Husni left Iraq in 1996 when international sanctions against Saddam Hussein’s government crushed the economy and made it difficult to earn money acting.

“I kept waiting for stability to return to the country,” he said. Meanwhile, he gained experience abroad in Lebanon, Syria and Saudi Arabia, before coming home five months ago.

Saadi said the revival of television production and other cultural activities showed a semblance of calm was returning to Iraq. “Art can only exist in a place with security, a place that is relatively stable,” he said.

The team has still faced hurdles, often having to work with old equipment or teaching crew members new skills.

Many Iraqi actors, cinematographers and directors who also fled have remained abroad. But Saadi said he was “very optimistic” that the entertainment industry would thrive again.

Many Iraqis were happy to see a local production on their TV screens, after years of watching shows imported from Egypt or other Arab states. But some were shocked by scenes that included one depicting a massage or those showing characters gathering in a nightclub, drinking alcohol or taking drugs.

Members of parliament’s culture committee said the show “contradicts the values and norms of Iraqi society”, which led to some nightclub scenes being edited out of future episodes.

“I was surprised and disappointed by this decision,” said screenwriter Hamid al-Maliki in a phone interview. “We’re trying to combat these phenomena, not promote them.”

His comments about the show’s themes were echoed by veteran actor and star of the show, Mahmoud Abu al-Abbas.

“We are trying to address them, not for the sake of distorting the image of Iraqi society, rather to remind audiences that we must look inwards and educate ourselves,” he said.

The battle between sanctuary jurisdictions and the Trump Administration has soared to new heights with a flap over a small regional airport in Washington state.

The King County Airport in Seattle had been used by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to deport 34,000 illegal immigrants over the last decade. But after a politically motivated study done by the University of Washington’s Center for Human Rights, which concluded in its report, “the time has come for this work to be done,” County Executive Dow Constantine issued an order pressuring companies that fuel planes, to stop servicing ICE flights or lose their contracts with the county.

The Federation for American Immigration Reform calls it all-out war against border enforcement. “This is taking it to a new level,” said FAIR’s spokesman Ira Mehlman. “Sanctuary policies say that the local jurisdiction won’t cooperate with ICE. Here (Constantine) is taking it a step further and blacklisting companies that do business with ICE. This crosses the line probably into obstruction of Justice.”

ICE operates the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, where illegal immigrants are detained while their cases wind their way through the immigration court system. When deporting through the King County Airport, handcuffed detainees were taken on a short, 40-minute bus ride before boarding a charter flight. Now, ICE is driving detainees three hours to the Yakima Airport.

Bryan Wilcox, ICE’s acting field operations director in Seattle, said, “state and local efforts thwarting ICE operations serve only to create additional security concerns and add significant delays and costs to U.S. taxpayers.”

ICE spokesperson Tanya Roman issued a press release detailing some of the illegal immigrants deported with charter flights from the King County Airport. The list includes a Mexican citizen wanted for human trafficking, a Honduran man accused of rape and murder and a Guatemalan man charged with torture and murder.

William Barr speaks out And We Love What He’s Saying, Do You?

William Barr speaks out in Fox News exclusive; Trump immigration overhaul plan pushback

In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Attorney General William Barr explained that he is trying to get to the bottom of whether or not “government officials abused their power and put their thumb on the scale” during the early stages of the Russia probe. “I’ve been trying to get answers to the questions and I’ve found that a See More lot of the answers have been inadequate and some of the explanations I’ve gotten don’t hang together. In a sense I have more questions today than when I first started,” Barr told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer in an interview set to air Friday on “America’s Newsroom.”

Hemmer conducted the interview with Barr in El Salvador, where he will address the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, MS-13, drug trafficking and human trafficking with officials.

Op-ed: Bill de Blasio 2020 – A ‘farce’ of a candidacy
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announcedThursday that he will seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, becoming the 23rd Democrat to officially announce a bid for the White House and the second this week following Montana Gov. Steve Bullock’s announcement on Tuesday. De Blasio took direct aim at President Trump, calling him a “bully,” adding that “I know how to take him on.”

Still, even de Blasio’s hometown was not impressed. A recent Quinnipiac University poll found 76 percent of New York City voters said they believed de Blasio shouldn’t run and gave the mayor “an anemic 42-44 percent job approval rating.” In an editorial, the New York Post called de Blasio’s candidacy a “complete farce” and gave reasons why “why Democrats across America shouldn’t waste time or money on this guy.” Trump called de Blasio “the worst mayor in the US.” And the blast-a-thon on de Blasio will likely go on and on.

Trump unveils immigration overhaul plan
President Trump on Thursday unveiled a long-awaited immigration overhaul that would dramatically alter how the U.S. accepts people into the country, upending the system in order to favor admissions based on merit rather than family ties. The proposal would judge immigrants with a points-based system that would favor high-skilled workers — accounting for age, English proficiency, education and whether the applicant has a well-paying job offer. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., warned Trump’s plan would have a “devastating effecton millions of people” and renewed her call to abolish ICE (the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency). Fox News host Laura Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle” on Thursday that the plan “makes sense” for America.

California’s high-speed rail project stopped in its tracks
The Trump administration is withdrawing nearly $1 billion in federal money for California’s high-speed rail project. The Federal Railroad Administration announced Thursday it will not give California the $928,620,000 it was originally promised, saying the state “repeatedly failed to comply with the terms” of its grant, “failed to make reasonable progress on the Project,” and “abandoned its original vision” for a train connecting Los Angeles to San Francisco. The administration will also be seeking to recover an additional $2.5 billion in funds from the state that were allocated to the project through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, a move that the California Rail Authority pleaded against in March.

It’s ‘GoT’ finale weekend
The series finale of “Game of Thrones” will air on HBO this Sunday and “GoT” fans – enamored and disgruntled alike – will likely give the cable channel blockbuster, perhaps record-setting, ratings. Besides the fates of Jon Snow, Daenerys, Arya and the Iron Throne, there are other questions that will need to be answered: Will more Starbucks cups or other “GoT” editing blunders be noticed by eagle-eyed fans? Will any more NFL quarterbacks make cameo appearances? Will even more viewers join the 350,000-plus disgruntled  faithful who have signed a petition demanding that HBO remake the final season “with competent writers”? Stay tuned.

TEL AVIV (Reuters) – NSO Group’s owner said it will do whatever necessary to ensure the Israeli firm’s spyware does not undermine human rights, after Amnesty International sought to revoke the export license for NSO, which has been linked to a WhatsApp breach.

While it did not comment on specific attacks, NSO said in a statement following a breach of WhatsApp’s messaging app on Tuesday that it would investigate any “credible allegations of misuse” of its technology which “is solely operated by intelligence and law enforcement agencies”.

WhatsApp, a unit of Facebook, told human rights groups it believed the spyware used was developed by NSO, best known for its mobile hacking tools, Eva Galperin, director of cybersecurity at San Francisco-based Electronic Frontier Foundation said on Tuesday following the breach.

A second person familiar with the matter also identified spyware from NSO, whose biggest investor is Novalpina Capital.

In a May 15 letter to Amnesty Novalpina said it controls NSO’s board and owns about two-thirds of its holding company.

The letter, signed by founding partner Stephen Peel, said Novalpina was “determined to do whatever is necessary to ensure that NSO technology is used for the purpose for which it is intended – the prevention of harm to fundamental human rights arising from terrorism and serious crime – and not abused in a manner that undermines other equally fundamental human rights”.

NSO’s founders and management acquired the company from U.S. private equity firm Francisco Partners in February, with Novalpina’s support.

WhatsApp, one of the world’s most popular messaging tools which is used by 1.5 billion people monthly, said it had notified the U.S. Department of Justice to help with an investigation, and it encouraged all WhatsApp users to update to the latest version of the app, where the breach had been fixed.

Novalpina has been exchanging letters with Amnesty over the past few months, outlining its commitment to ensure NSO operates in accordance with UN principles on business and human rights.

The latest communication was in response to a letter from Amnesty in April and does not mention the WhatsApp breach.

Lawful and responsible deployment of NSO technology by intelligence and law enforcement agencies is essential to meet the challenges of what would otherwise be untraceable crime, terrorism, human trafficking and drug cartels, said the letter.

It referred to an affidavit submitted to the Israeli government by Amnesty this week seeking the revocation of NSO’s export license. It said this would allow alternative suppliers that have not expressed interest in complying with UN principles to fill the gap.

Novalpina said it was seeking to involve Amnesty in its efforts to address concerns raised in the affidavit.

“Our intention is to establish a new benchmark for transparency and respect for human rights in full compliance with the UN Guiding Principles,” the letter said. “This will be underpinned by ongoing and meaningful consultation with affected stakeholders, and by a new model of public transparency.”

It said this goal will need to address complex matters of national security law and of intelligence and law enforcement agency practice.

“The intended outcome is a significant enhancement of respect for human rights to be built into NSO’s policies and procedures and into the products sold under license to intelligence and law enforcement agencies,” it said.
