News South SudanAfrica Condemning abuses Impunity Vuni’s relatives told the independent Sudan Tribunenewspaper that his body was discovered on a farm outside Kerepi, thevillage where his family lives, located in the north of the countrynear the Ugandan border.Gunmen kidnapped Vuni and his brother Andruga from the family’shome on the night of 4 June. A witness told the South Sudan Liberty News website at the time that the abductors wore the samemilitary dress as members of the “Tiger Battalion,” PresidentSalva Kiir’s bodyguards. It seems that Vuni was killed shortly after his abduction, whichwas never claimed. His brother has yet to be found.Vuni, who often wrote for the Sudan Tribune, had been undersurveillance by the South Sudanese security forces for years. He wasarrested in Juba on 29 July 2009 after reporting that members of theSudan People’s Liberation Army and the South Sudanese governmentwere implicated in a financial scandal.He was beaten while held incommunicado in a Juba police stationfrom 28 March to 2 May 2011, during a crackdown on South Sudan’sjournalists.“We condemn Isaac Vuni’s foul murder and call on theauthorities to conduct an investigation to identify those responsibleand bring them to justice,” said Cléa Kahn Sriber, the head ofRSF’s Africa desk.“The authorities distinguished themselves by their silence atthe time of his abduction. Their silence cannot continue. They mustput an end to the widespread impunity prevailing in South Sudan,which makes this kind of abuse possible.”Journalists and media outlets have constantly been the targets ofviolence since the start of the civil war in 2013. The South Sudaneseauthorities, and the intelligence services in particular, often holdjournalists incommunicado in an attempt to silence the media.As RSF has already reported, Radio Miraya’s George Livio has been held incommunicado in Juba for more than two years, while newspaper editorAlfred Taban was held incommunicado for 13 days in July Alfred Taban was held incommunicado for 13 days in July after publishing anarticle calling on the authorities to implement the peace accord.South Sudan is ranked 140th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index, 15 places lower than its position in the2015 Index.

County Sheriff’s officials said.Monday’s reward was initiated via a motion by Supervisor Kathryn Barger, whose district includes Altadena.“This was an unprovoked and heinous act perpetrated against a law enforcement member who has dedicated their profession to serving our community,” Barger said. “We continue to ask so much of law enforcement and we must stand by them in their time of need.”The deputy was on patrol in a marked car when she came upon a “crime in progress,” according to Deputy Grace Medrano of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.“As she approached the group in her vehicle, two males, believed to be Hispanic, targeted the deputy,” Medrano said in a written statement. “The first suspect produced a firearm and fired several gunshots in the deputy’s direction. The deputy was not injured. Both suspects fled on foot and are still outstanding.”“It is still unclear what type of crime was being committed at the time of the shooting,” Medrano added.The shooting is being investigated as an attempted murder of a deputy, officials said.“The stray bullets hit a structure and could have seriously injured or killed an innocent bystander,” according to a statement from Barger’s office.Anyone with information was urged to contact Detective C. Gutierrez of the Sheriff’s Operation Safe Streets Bureau at (626) 798-1131. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A.

Purplebricks shares continue freefall despite robust radio defence of sales by new UK CEO

first_imgThe Purplebricks share price has continued to tumble today dropping this morning by 10% to £3.74p a share, down from its all-time high of £5.13p.This follows a price crash late last week during which its share price dropped by nearly 15%, prompted in part – it is claimed by Purplebricks – by a market report from investment analyst Jefferies that claimed it is selling fewer properties than the 78% sales rate it currently promotes.The company’s new CEO Lee Wainwright (pictured, below) went public over the weekend and appeared on a BBC5Live radio programme, during which he called into question the basis of Jefferies report, saying: “Purplebricks wouldn’t be growing at the rate it is if we were only selling half the properties we list”.“The reason we’re capturing the imagination of consumers is that the old way [isn’t] working,” he added.“I’ve been in the estate agency for 26 years, I’ve worked on the high street, I know that the performance of Purplebricks is incredible compared to the high street estate agencies.“Customers want a better way, they want more transparency on fees and the convenience of 24-hour technology and they want a cost-effective way of doing estate agency with one fair fixed fee.”But the Jefferies report isn’t the only problem Purplebricks faces at the moment.allAgents calls for TrustPilot reviewReview website allAgents, which has been involved in a long-running dispute with Purplebricks over the veracity of its reviews, today called for an independent audit of Purplebricks’ 96% Trustpilot approval rating.“By their own admission, Purplebricks fails to sell 22% of properties, which means one in five customers didn’t get what they paid for,” says allAgents’ Martin McKenzie (pictured, right).“Their 96% approval rating on Trustpilot is highly questionable when you have this number of customers who may well be aggrieved.“Purplebricks refuse to disclose the number of properties they sell and use their Trustpilot score to claim to customers and the City [that] they’re somehow more popular than Disney.“This just doesn’t add up. It’s high time Purplebricks’ Trustpilot reviews were inspected by an independent source, in the same way their financial accounts are.”Listen to the BBC5Live interview (approx 10 mins into the programme).  Jefferies Purplebricks Martin McKenzie Lee Wainright AllAgents February 5, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
