Women are powerful drivers of progress when free to claim their rights
“Women's empowerment unlocks a rush of economic growth, and this is true whether we are in Switzerland or my homeland, South Africa”, said the UN Human Rights Chief, Navi Pillay, in her opening statement at a special side event focusing on gender equality and women´s empowerment.
Pillay deplored that women continue to suffer disproportionally from violence, poverty, lack of education, health problems, and unequal access to financial credit and economic resources. “This is not only unjust, it is a terrible waste of human talent”, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights added. 
“When we are free to claim our rights — we are extremely powerful drivers of progress; and this is just as true of a woman in a fishing village as it is of the Director of a multinational agency”, Pillay declared, while underlining that too often, the struggle for women's rights was framed as essentially protecting vic…

Image
Supreme Court on Tuesday said that the CBI probe report prima facie suggests irregularities in coal block allocation.

The court has directed CBI not to share its report with government and give it in writing to the court.
This comes four days after the probe agency submitted its latest probe status report to the top court in a selaed envelop.
The court also asked Centre to file additional affidavit to clarify policy criterion for selecting and dropping companies.
The news agency reports that CBI informed SC in its report that No verification of credentials of companies was done for coal block allocation during 2006-09.
CBI has registered a fresh case in the coal scam against a Jharkhand based company Jharkhand Ispat Private Limited.
The company is part of the RC Rungta Group.
It was allotted North Dhadu coal block on January 13, 2006 for its sponge iron plant.
CBI sources said they had detected several irregularities in the allotment after which a case was filed against it and u…

Salve withdraws as counsel for Italian marines

Image
"Insulted" and "shocked" by Italy's stand on the marines issue, senior Supreme Court advocate Harish Salve has quit as counsel for the Italian government in the fishermen killing case.

Salve said that now it is "a question of Indian prestige" and the government will be "justified" in the tough steps it takes in the matter after the Italian government refused the return of two marines, charged with killing of two Indian fishermen last year. "I am an Indian first and then a senior counsel and after that comes my duty to my client and I feel insulted...I feel that first of all we are officers of court and secondly in a matter like this, the client has to take you into confidence and if the client does not have confidence in you, I think we owe it to the system not to continue," he said. The two accused marines, Massimiliano Lattore and Salvatore Girone, were allowed by the apex court on February 22 to travel to Italy for fo…
