 Drinking in public places would soon become a punishable offence in Goa with a fine upto Rs 5000, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar said today while warning people against such indulgence. "Soon, drinking in public places would be a punishable offence. We will impose a fine upto Rs 5,000 on the violators. The state government will issue a necessary order in this regard after the Budget session of the assembly," Parrikar said while addressing a "Swachh Bharat Mission" programme organised by State Panchayat department.

Nikki Haley lambasts UN report on companies linked to Israeli settlements 1.2.2018
United Nations:  US Ambassador Nikki Haley on Wednesday slammed a UN report on 206 companies with ties to Israeli settlements as "a waste of time and resources" that showed an "anti-Israeli obsession." The office of the UN high commissioner for human rights released the report that did not name the companies but could pave the way to a "blacklist" of businesses that Israeli officials fear would be targeted for an international boycott. "This whole issue is outside the bounds of the High Commissioner for Human Rights office's mandate and is a waste of time and resources," Haley said in a statement. The report was in response to a resolution adopted in 2016 by the UN Human Rights Council that called for the creation of database of all companies doing business with the Israeli settlements, which the United Nations considers illegal under international law. "While we note that they wisely refrained from listing individual companies, the fact that the ...
