The gunman accused of killing 10 people and wounding 13 at a Texas high school last week was in a state of mental confusion, his attorneys said today, as schools beefed up security for students returning to classrooms.

Low conviction rates in cases of crime against women matter of concern: Ahir 21.5.2018 General News
Union Minister Hansraj Gangaram Ahir today expressed grave concern over low conviction rates in cases of crime against women and said speedy disposal of such cases alone can check the crimes and act as a deterrent. Addressing the inaugural session of a national conference on 'Gender Justice in Criminal Law', Ahir said the government was sensitive to the issue of women safety and has introduced in law harsher punishments including capital punishment to deal with such offences. "While laws can be made more harsh, swift disposal by criminal justice system can only check the crimes and also act as a deterrent to prevent its recurrence. The low conviction rates, however, continue to be a matter of grave concern," he said.

Malaysia sets up task force to probe 1MDB scandal 21.5.2018 General News
Malaysia today set up a task force to probe allegations that billions of dollars were looted from sovereign wealth fund 1MDB in an audacious fraud overseen by ousted ex-leader Najib Razak. New Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad led a reformist alliance to a shock victory at the May 9 polls over Najib's coalition, which had governed Malaysia uninterrupted for over six decades. A major reason for their success was public disgust at allegations of endemic corruption among the country's ruling elite, and in particular an explosive scandal surrounding state fund 1MDB. The fund, 1Malaysia Development Berhad, was set up in 2009 ostensibly to promote the development of the Malaysian economy. But it is alleged that Najib, his family and cronies looted the investment vehicle in a massive fraud stretching from the Cayman Islands to New York, with stolen funds used to buy everything from real estate to artworks. Mahathir -- who first served as premier from 1981-2003 and came out of retirement to ...

Tackle graft, governance to stem 'Golden Triangle' meth trade: UNODC 21.5.2018 General News
"Golden Triangle" countries must address corruption and collaborate more closely to tackle record meth production and the gangs who traffick the drug across Southeast Asia and beyond, the UN said today. From Bangkok to Brisbane, authorities are raking in huge hauls of methamphetamine stimulant pills -- better known as "yaba" -- and the purer, more potent crystallised version known as "ice". They hail from the "Golden Triangle", a lawless wedge of land that intersects China, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar and is the world's second-largest drug-producing region. Its drug labs -- mainly in Myanmar's conflict-ridden Shan State -- are working overtime, aiding organised crime gangs in their quest for new markets as far away as Australia and Japan. Worth an estimated USD 40 billion a year, huge volumes of meth pass through the Golden Triangle, waved through by corrupt law enforcement and border controls. "Ensuring governance and the rule of law will be crucial to any long-term reduction in drug .
