Sri Lanka continues to sting the International Community on Human Rights: TGTE

Former head of a notorious Unit involved in torture was part of the Sri Lankan delegation to the UN Committee Against Torture (UNCAT)

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, November 18, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Former head of a notorious Unit involved in torture was part of the Sri Lankan delegation to the UN Committee Against Torture (UNCAT) said Mr. Manicka Vasagar, the Minister for International Affairs of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE).

The attendance of the former head of the notorious Sri Lanka’s Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) Sisira Mendis, as a representative of the Sri Lankan delegation, to the UN Committee Against Torture (UNCAT) meeting in Geneva, shows that Sri Lanka continues to disrespect and smacks on the integrity on the United Nation’s body, he continued.

Mr. Mendis who was in Charge of the Terrorism Investigation Department, was fully responsible for the numerous torture cases on victims under his watch, as documented by the International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) in their memo to UNCAT. Many are still left traumatized with injuries and some are still unaccounted for or missing.

It is a body blow to the victims and families who are still waiting for justice and accountability, to see perpetrators, allowed to travel freely, when under investigation for human rights, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Sri Lanka continues to negate on its own co-sponsored resolution, the implementation for an independent international investigation, with foreign judges, prosecutors and lawyers, for justice, and for promoting reconciliation between the two peoples, accountability and human rights, and continues to contravene both the UN Human Rights Council resolutions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

TGTE calls upon the International Community to refer Sri Lanka to the UN Security Council / ICC for an action plan similar to the HRC referral of North Korea to the general assembly, if Sri Lanka fails to implement the UN resolution in full by March 2017. Consistency is essential in the integrity of the UN mechanism.

For further information contact: moia@tgte.org

ABOUT TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNMENT OF TAMIL EELAM (TGTE):

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected Government of a million strong Tamils (from the island of Sri Lanka) living in several countries around the world. TGTE was formed after the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009.

TGTE twice held internationally supervised elections among Tamils around the world to elect 132 Members of Parliament. It has a bicameral legislature and a Cabinet. It held one of its Parliamentary sittings in the British Parliament.

TGTE is leading a campaign to realize Tamils’ political aspirations through peaceful, democratic and diplomatic means. The Constitution of the TGTE mandates that it should realize its political objective only through peaceful means.

The Prime Minister of TGTE is Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, a New York based lawyer.

Contact: pmo@tgte.org
Web: www.tgte-us.org

BACKGROUND:

Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka faced repeated mass killings in 1958, 1965, 1977, 1981 and 1983 and the mass killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of the killings.

According to UN internal review report on Sri Lanka, over 70,000 Tamils were killed in five months in early 2009 and Tamil women were raped by the Sri Lankan Security forces. There are over 90,000 Tamil war widows and thousands of Tamils disappeared due the conflict.

According to this UN report, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community.

A Buddhist Monk shot and killed a Sri Lankan Prime Minister 1959 for having talks with Tamil political leaders.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in a Parliamentary election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country called Tamil Eelam. This Parliamentary election was conducted by the Sri Lankan Government.

Special Promotion on Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive from Gourmet Living

2016 Tuscan Olives being Harvested

Gourmet Living's acclaimed extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany is now on Sale for a short time only. Experience the incomparable taste of Italian olive oil.

Experience the distinctive taste of Tuscan extra virgin olive oil at a special discounted price

— Sheila May

GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gourmet Living is proud to announce its "pre-Black Friday sale" of its extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany. This classic Italian blend consists of the 3 main olive varieties from Tuscany: Frantoio (50%), Moraiolo (30%) and Leccino (approximately 20%).

Harvested last year from the rolling hills of Tuscany just south of Florence, this IGP certified extra virgin olive oil was introduced to the American market in the spring and is currently sold on Amazon.

Says co-owner Sheila May, "this is a great way to sample an authentic extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany at a greatly discounted price. Americans can new taste the difference of a quality olive oil. Sadly, many brands sold commercially mislabel their products and often use inferior blends of oils of uncertain age and origin."

A Tuscan EVOO is generally used to flavor salads, pasta and fresh and roasted vegetables. A well-balanced and tasty olive oil complements the flavors of other food ingredients.

This flavorful extra virgin olive oil (“EVOO”) was harvested in late 2015 and will easily last through December, 2017 if unopened. Once olive oil is opened and exposed to the elements, it should be consumed within 6 months.

All of the 3 varieties of olives used in this olive oil are harvested in the morning and crushed in the afternoon to extract the highest quality of oil and the maximum level of freshness and antioxidant compounds. Olives are typically harvested in Tuscany between the 15th of October and the 20th of November. Green or half-colored olives tend to have the best combination of aroma and color.

While ripe olive tend to produce a higher yield of oil, its aroma and quality tends to suffer when compared to “younger” olives that have not matured on the tree. In general, 100 kilos of olives, produces 12 kilos of olive oil.

The olives are crushed at a temperature below 27ºC (81ºF), a process which lasts about 40 minutes. The oils used for Gourmet Living's blend are cold-extracted in a very modern olive oil mill. For frequently asked questions about olive oil visit the Gourmet Living website.

Tuscan olives are usually small and production per tree is quite low when compared to the south of Italy and Spain. Typically, olive oil production is about one liter per tree per year. This is why the flavor is very concentrated and intense and the oil is so pleasant.

The production of Gourmet Living’s blend is from the southern area of Florence, near where Chianti Classico is produced. This area is covered olive trees on gentle hill slopes and harvested in a way that incorporates the best of old and new production techniques.

During this special promotion, you may purchase Gourmet Living's Tuscan extra virgin olive oil for 50% off of its normal retail price of $32.50. Simply enter Promotion Code 8ZJ23NIN at checkout. There is FREE Shipping for members of Amazon prime.

This special summer promotion ends on November 20th.

Corstrata Wins Pitch Contest at Georgia Tech Advanced Technology Development Center’s Demo Day



Katherine Piette – Corstrata CEO & Founder delivers the winning pitch at ATDC Savannah Demo Day

Corstrata, a leading telemedicine solution for complex wound care management, placed first at the Georgia Tech ATDC Demo Day pitch competition

Corstrata makes wound care nurses’ expertise available via remote consultations using our digital imaging and communications technologies to deliver timely consultation to patients anywhere, anytime.

— Joseph Ebberwein – Corstrata CFO & Founder

SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — At the annual Georgia Tech Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) Demo Day in Savannah, Georgia on November 16, the Corstrata team welcomed the opportunity to share its story of founding a telemedicine company that delivers its innovative approach to wound care for complex patient cases. Katherine Piette, CEO and Founder, readily convinced the judges that this HealthTech company should win the contest. A financial prize was awarded by the Savannah Economic Development Authority (SEDA).

Using leading edge mobile technologies and a team of board-certified nurses, Corstrata enables care coordination through its “geographic hub” approach as the patient moves across multiple provider settings such as Home Health Agencies, Hospices, and Skilled Nursing Facilities. Remote access to Corstrata services for patients insured by various payers – Medicare/Medicaid Managed Care, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and Third Party Administrators (TPAs) – attracts these organizations that are moving to value-based care delivery and reimbursement models with excellent clinical outcomes at the lowest cost.

Corstrata’s founders, industry veterans Katherine Piette and Joseph Ebberwein, welcomed the opportunity provided by ATDC Savannah to share their journey from launching Corstrata eighteen months ago to its present stage of converting pilot accounts to paid subscribers while continuing to expand pilots across the United States. Recognizing that the growth in the wound patient population is driven by the aging population and on-going increases in chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and renal failure, Ms. Piette highlighted the severe shortage of available Certified Wound Specialists. Joseph Ebberwein, CFO and Founder explained, “Corstrata makes wound care nurses’ expertise available through remote consultations using our digital imaging and communications technology to deliver expert consultation to patients anywhere, anytime.” Both founders completed the rigorous ATDC Startup Boot Camp held in Savannah earlier in 2016. With an audience of investors and the business community from around the region, Demo Day consisted of the pitch event, a Startup Alley showcase, and a networking reception.

About Corstrata
Corstrata was founded in 2015 to deliver innovative wound care management services and address the shortage of expertise in this $33B U.S. market. Home health agencies, third party administrators of self-funded employer insurance programs (TPAs), clinically integrated networks of doctors and related practitioners (CINs), and direct care physicians (DCPs) can benefit from Corstrata’s unique combination of professional expertise, digital technologies and telemedicine to treat wound patients and support practitioners anywhere, any time. The company delivers a Comprehensive Wound Care Management Program, Wound Patient Consultations, and specific services such as program, policy and procedure assessment, formulary design, treatment guidelines assessment, wound documentation review, and practitioner education. Wound program development is available for Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Management, Diabetic Foot Ulcer Prevention and Management, Ostomy Care and Management, and Palliative Wound Management.

STERLING HEIGHTS, MICHIGAN, USA, November 18, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inspiration can lead to magnificent outcomes.

Against the Clock – One Attorney Presses for Presidential Pardon before Inauguration Day



Texas attorney Victoria Broussard.

Texas attorney Victoria Broussard knows that time is running out for her client.

Though Dr. York refutes the superseding indictment charges, he was imprisoned after being found guilty on various RICO and structuring money charges in 2004,

— Victoria Broussard

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ — Texas attorney Victoria Broussard knows that time is running out for her client. The relentless ticks of the clock grow louder with every stroke closer to the day where President Obama leaves the Oval Office. Broussard is under the gun because it is vital to her that her client receive a pardon from the outgoing President before that day in late January.

The client in question is Malachi Z. York, who is currently serving a 135-year sentence in an ultra-maximum security prison. York was convicted of RICO charges – charges typically reserved for mobsters and organized crime leaders which, according to Broussard, York definitely isn’t.

“Though Dr. York refutes the superseding indictment charges, he was imprisoned after being found guilty on various RICO and structuring money charges in 2004,” she explains. “For the past 10 years, he has been housed at Florence ADX, a supermax prison reserved for the most hardened, violent criminals, while he himself is in his 70s, non-violent, frail, and in failing health.”

Broussard is undeterred even though she frequently finds herself on the receiving end of Internet trolling and name-calling, primarily due to York’s history as a charismatic spiritual leader and accused sex offender. She knows that her fervent representation of him has caused much controversy due in part to the fact that she herself is a victim of childhood sexual abuse.

“Several of the RICO charges accused him of transporting minors across state lines with the intent to engage in sexual activity, to which he has steadfastly and vehemently maintained he is innocent of,” she said. “I know as a survivor of child sexual abuse, people expect me to shy away from representing a man accused of these crimes. However, I have serious doubts about the guilty verdict, which was actually a hung verdict before the judge informed the dissenting juror, who believed Mr. York was being framed, that she could easily be replaced.”

Prior to his conviction, Broussard describes York as a pillar of society, consistently giving thousands of dollars to charity, feeding the homeless, and transforming downtrodden communities. Today, he is 71 years old and suffers from a life-threatening illness, Hereditary Angioedema, for which the Federal Bureau of Prisons neglects to provide him with any of the FDA prescribed medications to lessen and prevent the attacks, leaving him frequently found by unsympathetic guards unconscious on his concrete cell floor. She took on his case and seeks the presidential pardon because of her lifelong passion of combating injustices. A lifelong advocate, her favorite quote is by Edmund Burke: The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.

“Dr. York’s insane 1,620-month sentence is extremely harsh, as each count received the maximum time according the sentencing guidelines,” she said. “Other factors that weigh in favor of a reduced sentence, such as his health status, remorse for any pain this situation caused, age, rehabilitative qualities, past criminal history, the community’s desire to embrace his return, and Dr. York’s ability to benefit society if released from incarceration should all be considered.”

As the fight for York’s freedom intensifies, so do threats to her well-being and livelihood, Broussard remains steadfast in her legal belief that York’s sentence should be reduced – whether innocent or not of the crimes he was accused of – in light of the recent trends towards rational, corrective, and reformative sentencing advocated by the Obama Administration. Her continued passion for justice impelled her to seek a Presidential commutation for York, and is in the midst of her formal presentation to the White House Pardon Attorney’s office. She also created an electronic petition on Change.org and hopes people will read the facts of the case and be inspired to replenish confidence in the criminal justice system by signing in support of York’s freedom, which she hopes will be considered by President Obama before he leaves office on January 20, 2017. “Just search for my name, Broussard, and read the petition and sign it,” she encouraged.

Determined to overcome the abuse she endured as a child, Broussard gave birth to her brand, Live Well With Your Truth, The Qualified Quantus Mind, a suite of conversion coaching products that organically move people from any shadowy mental place produced by negative or devastating life experiences into their divine, organic self. She is a keynote speaker and member of the RAINN (Rape Abuse Incest National Network) Speaker’s Bureau, and has spoken at events sponsored by M.A.C.E. (Ministers Against Child Exploitation), the Hays-Caldwell County Women’s Center in San Marcos, the University of Texas, and other Texas organizations. She recently accepted her first Humanitarian Award from a Godsend Foundation and has participated in numerous talk radio and internet interviews, as well as speeches and presentations.

Additionally, Broussard’s passion for healing hurts caused by childhood sexual abuse prompted her to create a nonprofit organization called B'yond the Unveiling, which is dedicated to the pursuit of eradicating childhood sexual abuse through a comprehensive “out-of-the-box” approach that treats survivors, but also gives attention to the elephant in the room, those who commit sex crimes against innocent, unsuspecting children.

“I get how unnerving my representation of Dr. York may be for many and I will gladly explain why I took such a controversial case and my defense of Dr. York to any inquiring mind. In brief, I am an attorney who took an oath of office that I would discharge my duties to my clients to the best of my ability, which means serving them with integrity and all the intestinal fortitude I possess. Also, I would love to hear about more examples of justice denied, so that together we can work on giving those who have been on the receiving end of a court system gone amok a chance at redemption and rehabilitation.”
Broussard encourages people to contact her at victoria@broussardlegal.com.
