As observed in earlier order, the scheme has to be a fair and transparent scheme, considering the fact that the amount of Rs 5 crore transferred by the government constitutes public money. Additional Advocate General (AAG) is also directed to address the court on the nature of the scheme.” The direction followed after Advocate Anil Kumar appearing for the Advocates Association of Bengaluru raised objections to the scheme. He said “The KSBC circular states that only male advocates are entitled for the amounts. Further, those who are enrolled before 1/01/2010 and should have not crossed the age of 40 years are eligible. They are targeting the age group of 35-40 years. No junior advocate is entitled for the relief. On the previous date of hearing the court had said the scheme must be presented to the court, they have not followed the orders. Thus the scheme is faulty.” Advocate Nataraj G appearing for the KSBC said “On earlier occasion, framed scheme who enrolled subsequent to 1/01/2010. We already paid an amount of Rs 5,000. After this grant, we are streamling those advocates who were enrolled prior to 1/01/2010. Since advocates registered after 1/01/2010, have already got financial assistance therefore this scheme is being framed. Since we are calling upon the advocates register before January 1, 2010, a large number of advocates will make applications.” He submitted that he would place the scheme on record of the court for further consideration. Advocate Chetan Munnoli appearing for the Advocates Association of High Court at Dharwad bench informed the court that “Till now Rs 40,000 has been collected by the association. Many seniors have paid salaries to their clerks during the pandemic, in that view they have not contributed to this cause. However, we will still try to collect some more amount and help the clerks.” The bench in its order said “As observed earlier more amount will have to be collected by the association. Counsel for advocates clerks association at dharwad has stated that he will submit a list of advocate clerks who are not attached to any particular lawyers and have received remuneration from advocates so that those clerks who were paid remuneration will be submitted. After receiving the list of clerks who badly need assistance the association should distribute the amount in a fair and transparent manner.” The state government also informed the court that it has disposed of the representations made by the Belgavi bar association and the Advocates Association at Dharwad. They have been directed to approach the state bar council for seeking financial assistance to its members. It has also not sanctioned a separate amount for Advocates’s clerks and has directed the bar council to set apart some amount for needy advocates clerks, out of Rs 5 crore granted for the benefit of Advocates. The bench said “State to place on record the decision taken to not grant separate amounts to advocate’s clerks and decisions taken on representations made by Bar associations, so that the court can examine whether the state has given any reasons.” The court has now posted the matter seeking financial assistance for needy advocate’s clerks for further hearing on September 7.

Parole hearing for Calgary man who strangled wife buried body in basement

first_imgBOWDEN, Alta. — A man who strangled his wife and concealed her body in a wall of their home after enduring what he described as years of domestic abuse is scheduled for his first parole hearing today.Allan Shyback was convicted of manslaughter and indignity to a body in the 2012 death of Lisa Mitchell.He was originally sentenced to seven years in prison, but the Alberta Court of Appeal increased it to 10 years.Shyback testified at his trial that he killed Mitchell in defence as she attacked him with a knife.He said he panicked, put her body inside a plastic bin and cemented it into a basement wall of the Calgary home they shared with their children.Last fall, the Appeal Court, in adding more time to his sentence, noted the severity of Shyback’s crimes“For two years, the respondent led the deceased’s family to believe that she was alive and there was some hope of her returning. He maintained this deception until the Mr. Big operation revealed the truth,” Justice Jack Watson wrote on behalf of the three-member panel.“It was particularly cruel for the respondent to suggest to the children that their mother had abandoned them but might return one day, even though he knew she was entombed in the basement of the house in which they were all living.”An undercover police operation began in 2013 and ended with Shyback’s confession and arrest in Winnipeg.The parole hearing at Bowden Institution, south of Red Deer, Alta., will assess any risk he may present to the community if he is released. In most cases, board members give their decision and reasons the day of the hearing.— Follow @BillGraveland on Twitter Bill Graveland, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
