What is Article 7 of the EU Treaty?

Article 7 is a mechanism of the Lisbon Treaty that ensures "all EU countries respect the common values of the EU." It was envisaged as a way to mitigate and prevent member states from backsliding on European values and the rule law, with a nod to the bloc's youngest democracies. Although the measure came into force in the 1999 Treaty of Amsterdam, it hadn't been triggered until recently. In December 2017, the European Commission launched Article 7 against Poland over its controversial judicial reforms, followed by the European Parliament who voted to launch the sanctions proceedings against Hungary this September....

Bangladeshis produce false documents to be citizens of India

India said on Friday thousands of illegal immigrants from neighbouring Muslim majority Bangladesh had produced false documents to become citizens in the far-eastern Indian state of Assam. The Supreme Court had ordered the citizenship tally for Assam following years of campaigns against immigrants from Bangladesh who ethnic Assamese say are eating into their resources and taking their land. A final register is due on July 31 but on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government told the court that authorities needed to review the draft list of citizens because they believed many on it had given false information. “There is a...

Philippine Police push sedition charges – Duterte foes cry foul

MANILA, July 20, (Agencies): Opponents of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte expressed shock and outrage on Friday at police moves to charge dozens of them with sedition, calling it persecution aimed at stamping out scrutiny of his increasingly powerful rule. Thirty-six opposition figures are accused of cyber libel and sedition for orchestrating a series of online videos ahead of May’s mid-term elections. The videos feature a hooded man alleging that Duterte and his family members were involved in the illegal drugs trade, which they deny. The man, who had said he was a witness, later surrendered and appeared with police on...

Iran seizes British tanker

Iran denies Trump claim US downed drone GENEVA/LONDON, July 20, (Agencies): Iran said on Saturday it had seized a British-flagged oil tanker because it was involved in an accident, an explanation Britain rejected, calling the move a “hostile act”. The action by Iranian Revolutionary Guards in the global oil trade’s most important waterway came two weeks after Britain seized an Iranian tanker accused of violating sanctions on Syria. It is certain to be viewed in the West as a military escalation after three months of confrontation which has already taken Iran and the United States to the brink of war....

Poet dropped for laureate job says criticism of poem 'silly'

The man whose nomination to become New Hampshire's next poet laureate was withdrawn amid growing criticism of a sexually suggestive poem about former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says he doubts people have even read it. Daniel Thomas Moran said Saturday via email that the 2005 poem is the "imagined musings of an adolescent crush." He says the idea that the poem is "sexually laced or misogynistic is nothing less than silly." The 62-year-old Moran is a retired dentist and former poet laureate of Suffolk County, New York. New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu said he chose Moran as laureate based...

King Salman approves hosting US forces in Saudi Arabia

RIYADH, July 20, (RTRS): Saudi Arabia’s King Salman approved hosting US forces in the country to boost regional security and stability, the state news agency (SPA) reported on Friday. The US Defense Department confirmed the move in a statement, saying it would deploy troops and resources to Saudi Arabia to “provide an additional deterrent” in the face of “emergent, credible threats.” The gesture comes amid rising tensions between Washington and Tehran in the Gulf that have impacted global oil markets. On Friday, Iran said it had seized a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz, but denied Washington’s assertion...
