Tampa lawyers process Iraqi prisoners of war

first_img June 1, 2003 Regular News Tampa lawyers process Iraqi prisoners of war Tampa lawyers process Iraqi prisoners of war center_img The first tribunals of the Iraq war took place between April 15 and April 20, and for Tampa area attorneys/soldiers, Captains Daryl M. Manning, and Peter J. Molinelli, serving on the tribunal panel with their British counterparts has been a rewarding experience.“We had a lot in common with the British even though our legal systems are slightly different,” said Capt. Molinelli, 32nd Transportation Group trial counsel. “They were very practical and pragmatic.”The tribunal panel took this practical approach in determining how much of a threat was posed by those captured during the war.The Article 5 Tribunals, which took place at Theater Holding Area Freddy, also referred to as Camp Bucca, a compound just outside of Um Qasr, determined which of the four classes an individual falls into under the Geneva Convention. The four classes of detainees are innocent civilian, civilian internee, enemy prisoners of war (EPW), and retained person.Innocent civilians are individuals who happen to be citizens of an opposing nation but have neither committed belligerent acts nor posed any threat to coalition forces. Civilian internees are noncombatants who have been detained because they present some threat to coalition forces and therefore require further investigation. EPWs are individuals in uniform, who actively engaged in fighting coalition forces. The fourth category, retained persons, are medical or religious military personnel kept to provide services to their fellow detainees.“The tribunal process is designed to ensure the detainees’ rights are safeguarded to the greatest extent possible,” said Molinelli, who in civilian life practices with the Tampa firm of Rissman, Weisberg, Barrett, Hurt, Donahue, and McLain.Initially, the detainees were captured or surrendered to coalition forces and were transported to Camp Bucca, where they were processed, and their medical and humanitarian needs were met. There, they were given identification armbands and divided up in living quarters based on the status they originally claimed.To begin a tribunal, a general officer must identify the individuals who will sit on the tribunal panels. Tribunal panels are made up of three members, one of which has to be a JAG officer. The president of the tribunal board is required to be a major or an officer of higher rank.“It worked to our benefit to utilize three individuals because most of the time they had different backgrounds and experiences to bring to the table,” said Capt. Manning, 32nd Transportation Group command judge advocate and, in civilian life, a supervisor of the trial division at the Florida Attorney General’s Office.According to Manning a fourth individual, a recorder, is also involved.“His job is similar to that of a prosecutor in a civilian trial, although this process is not adversarial,” Manning said.The recorder presents evidence for both sides to the tribunal panel. A reporter is also present to make a summary of the record and evidence introduced during the tribunal.The Geneva Convention gives a detainee in a tribunal the right to either remain silent or to make a statement on his behalf. He also has the right to have someone available to represent him, call witnesses, and produce, documents and evidence.After hearing all the evidence, the panel goes into deliberation to determine which category the individual falls into by majority vote. Once a decision is reached, the individual is advised of his status and either returned to the compound or processed for release, pending review from higher authorities.“For me, the best part of the tribunal process was releasing innocent civilians back to their friends and families,” Molinelli. said “On several occasions grown men would start to cry when they realized they were going home.”Molinelli described the story of a man who had been escaping a bombed building with his wife when a Baath Party member murdered his wife in front of him.“We interviewed a 14-year-old boy who was detained in Nasiriyah,” Manning said. “He had no education and had a job as a welder. It was clear to the panel that he had committed no belligerent acts against coalition forces. He explained to the panel that his father was ill and he was the sole provider for his family. The panel unanimously voted to release him immediately. He burst into tears and was overjoyed that he was going to go home.” Information contained in this story was obtained from the U.S. Army’s public information office.last_img read more

Everton smash club transfer record as they sign Lukaku for £28m

first_imgEverton have signed Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku for a club-record fee of £28million. The Belgium international, who spent last season on loan at Goodison Park and was their leading scorer with 16 goals in 33 appearances to help them finish fifth, has agreed a five-year contract. Reports of the move began emerging in the 21-year-old’s homeland earlier on Wednesday and the striker tweeted a picture of himself on a plane with the message “Time to write a new chapter…..”. Press Associationcenter_img Lukaku was manager Roberto Martinez’s primary summer transfer target and while the fee may have blown their previous record – £15million for Lukaku’s compatriot Marouane Fellaini when he moved from Standard Liege in 2008 – the Toffees boss believes the striker’s age and potential mean it was worth paying. The press conference to unveil Lukaku was delayed by more than 80 minutes as Everton were still waiting for a final piece of the player’s paperwork to be returned to the club. last_img read more

Clippers’ Lou Williams goes from on the bubble to in the ‘bubble’ in Orlando

first_imgWith so much movement happening on the social justice front, last month Lou Williams said he wasn’t sure whether playing basketball this summer would distract from those issues. And, he said, he didn’t know whether he should join the Clippers in Orlando as they seek to finish off what they hope is the organization’s first championship season.“This is a whirlwind of a time we don’t know what’s the right decision now, we’re trying to figure out on the fly like everybody else,” Williams said in June in an illuminating virtual chat hosted by CoStar. “We have a job to do, we have livelihoods, we have families to feed and we’re also majority Black men at the same time.“And so we’re trying to find that balance where, you know, if we do suit up … how much of this platform can we really use? Can we get a Black Lives Matter patch on our jerseys. Can our jerseys say Black Lives Matter? Can the courts say Black Lives Matter?“Honestly, it’s hard to call. I’m 50/50 right now to be honest with you.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Now that he’s in Orlando, Williams – a veteran leader and an 18.7 point-per-game scorer for the Clippers this season – and others will have to navigage how best to compete while also advocating for equality.“It’s going to be a challenge; I think we’re up for it,” said Williams, who said he’ll also spend some free time in his room working on a musical project that he’d intended to release July 4 if there hadn’t been more important issues at hand.“Obviously, we’re here in Orlando. This is Day 2 for us outside of quarantine, so at this point we have to focus on basketball,” he said. “We have to focus on getting ourselves in shape, understanding the environment that we are in, getting used to the environment and trying to compete at a high level … Once I realize that everything is OK, I can do this, and then I start focus on other issues that I want to involve in.”Clippers coach Doc Rivers said players and personnel will have to compartmentalize their priorities.“We made the choice that we can do our jobs and do our jobs well, and then, also, have the ability to talk,” Rivers said. “Let’s say if we hadn’t decided to play, I wouldn’t be here talking about it right now. So we have the opportunity to speak our truths, and we are not going to stop doing it.”Indeed not.Over Zoom on Saturday, Rivers expressed clearly that they’ll dribble, but they won’t shush, speaking his mind about a dispute between Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) and Adrian Wojnarowski.ESPN’s top basketball insider issued an apology for responding with an obscenity to a news release from Hawley’s office that criticized the NBA for allowing social justice messages on jerseys. Hawley tweeted a screenshot of Wojnarowski’s emailed reply and added the message: “Don’t criticize #China or express support for law enforcement to @espn. It makes them real mad.”Related Articles After a discussion and a vote with his teammates – “we decided that our decision, it was going to be everybody or nobody,” he said – Lou Will was no longer on the bubble. Now he’s in it.The three-time Sixth Man of the Year is getting adjusted to life on the closed campus at the Walt Disney World Resort. He’s practicing again with most of his teammates. Star wing Kawhi Leonard arrived a couple days after most of the Clippers and on Saturday was undergoing the quarantine and testing protocol before joining his teammates.And, Williams said, he’s happy the NBA heard him and his colleagues.The league agreed to give players the option of wearing a messages on their jerseys and to display Black Lives Matter in prominent locations on the courts.“That’s progression,” the guard said before Saturday’s practice. “I’m happy to know that I work for a company that stands alongside of the minorities in this country and wants to make a bold statement like that. Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 “Obviously they have a lot of sponsors and everything … and some people may not feel that way. But I thought it was important for the NBA to listen to the players and listen to our voices and put the things in motion that we felt strongly about and stand next to us with those issues.” Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Rivers was irked, saying Hawley’s tweet sought to turn the conversation away from Black Lives Matter.“It’s funny, whenever we talk about justice, people try to change the message,” Rivers said. “Colin Kaepernick kneels; it had nothing to do with troops. It had to do with social injustice, and everyone tried to change the narrative. How about staying on what we are talking about and dealing with that, instead of trying to trick us or … trick your constituents?“I guarantee you,” the coach continued, “we’ve done more for the military than probably that senator. And I guarantee you this: We also are going to do things for #BlackLivesMatter. How about him? Maybe he should join into that.”last_img read more

first_imgWatford defender Craig Cathcart reflects on their 2-1 away win at Crystal Palace after he scored on both ends of the pitch on Saturday.Cathcart was unfortunate to be on the end of Abdoulaye Doucouré’s attempted clearance which ricocheted off him and went into the net.The Northern Irishman equaled the most own goals scored in the Premier League this season, on par with Wesley Hoedt of Southampton.He went from zero to hero in the 67th minute when he nodded in the equalizer from a corner kick sent in by Jose Holebas.Tom Cleverley then came off the bench and scored in the 74th minute to give the visitors a 2-1 victory at Selhurst Park.Joel Ward, Crystal PalaceHow Joe Ward thanks his faith for his football Manuel R. Medina – September 13, 2019 Crystal Palace defender, Joel Ward, has thanked his Christian faith for helping him play football professionally and he explains why.“It was my first brace! So I’m happy with that…” Cathcart jokingly told the club’s website.“Obviously, it’s nice after scoring an O.G. to get the equalizing goal. Then we had the momentum going forward.“The second goal from Tom was a great finish, and we pretty much controlled the game after that.”last_img read more
