Philippines’ Duterte will not cooperate with ICC probe into killings
  + stars: | 2021-06-15 | by ( ) sentiment -0.96   time to read: +1 min
Kazuhiro Nogi /Pool via Reuters/File PhotoPhilippine President Rodrigo Duterte will not cooperate with an investigation of the Southeast Asian nation’s drug war killings planned by the International Criminal Court (ICC), his spokesperson said on Tuesday. Rights groups and critics of the drug killings have welcomed the step by the ICC, saying a full-scale investigation will bring justice closer for the thousands of people killed in Duterte's bloody war on drugs. "We do not need foreigners to investigate killings in the drug war because the legal system is working in the Philippines," Roque said, adding he believed launching a formal probe was "legally erroneous and politically motivated." An ICC prosecutor sought authorisation on Monday to open a full investigation into the killings, saying crimes against humanity could have been committed. Rights group say police were summarily executing suspects, but authorities say they were killed after violently resisting arrest.

REUTERS/Toru Hanai/File PhotoJapan's trade ministry colluded with Toshiba Corp's (6502.T) management to unduly influence a key shareholder vote last year, an independent probe found, undermining Tokyo's efforts to improve corporate governance and win over foreign investors. Toshiba's management "worked closely" with the ministry to exert "undue influence on some shareholders," the report found. The probe, conducted by three lawyers, found that Toshiba, with the ministry, tried to force Effissimo to withdraw shareholder proposals for board nominees aimed at improving governance. The ministry has previously said that it never asked the adviser to contact Toshiba shareholders. CVC's offer to take the Japanese conglomerate private and retain incumbent management was perceived by some in the company as designed to shield Kurumatani from activist shareholders, Toshiba sources have said.

The probe's findings mark an explosive turn in a long battle between the Japanese company's management and foreign shareholders, which include activist investors and Harvard University's endowment fund. The investigators also allege that Suga encouraged the pressure on Toshiba investors in a breakfast meeting with a senior company executive last July. A spokesperson for the Harvard fund declined to comment, while 3D did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The Harvard fund ultimately abstained from voting. Toshiba said at the time it was not involved in any efforts to pressure Harvard.

Chinese and Japanese flags flutter in front of the Tiananmen Gate ahead of Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit, in Beijing, China October 25, 2018. REUTERS/Thomas PeterThe Chinese foreign ministry defended the value of cultural exchanges with Japan on Wednesday after Chinese intellectuals came under heavy attack from nationalists online for attending events sponsored by the Japanese government over many years. Some prominent Chinese scholars and writers came under fire last week after nationalistic netizens noticed their names among a list of 144 Chinese intellectuals who had been sponsored by the Japan Foundation to visit Japan from 2008 to 2016. "We must focus on setting the tone right, be open and confident but also modest and humble, and strive to create a credible, lovable and respectable image of China," Xi said, according to Xinhua news agency. Some Chinese diplomats and commentators have taken up hardline positions on social media in recent years, appealing to nationalist passions among their online followers.

Activists are back in Japan and they’re zeroing in on hoarded reserves as the country’s annual general meeting season kicks off. Small wonder: two-fifths of non-financial stocks in the top-tier Topix index have net cash worth more than a fifth of their equity – a new record, says Smith. Another property owner has an uncomfortably cosy relationship with its top tenant, the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The numbers are a reminder to investors of how far governance reforms began under former prime minister Shinzo Abe still have to go.

Israel's Iron Dome repelled thousands of rockets and even drones during recent fighting. The Israel Defense Forces told Israeli media the friendly-fire incident is under investigation. Israel's Iron Dome accidentally shot down an Israeli military drone during recent fighting with Hamas in the Gaza Strip, the Israel Defense Forces told local media. It is a part of a larger tiered defense system that includes other critical assets like the Arrow and Patriot batteries. Iron Dome had not yet engaged a drone in combat though.

As residents picked through rubble and continued to take stock of the damage in the Gaza Strip, humanitarian aid arrived in the long impoverished region on Saturday, less than 48 hours after a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas was declared. The United Nations said it had released $22.5 million, which would go towards rebuilding damaged water and electricity infrastructure and disposing of explosive ordnance. Over 77,000 Palestinians were displaced and unable to leave Gaza, during the 11-days of fighting that ended late Thursday, the U.N. said in a statement. Many have now begun to return home, although at least 1,000 people had their homes completely destroyed or severely damaged, it added. Adi Vaizel looks at the damage caused to his house in Ashkelon, Israel, on Thursday, after it was hit by a rocket launched from the Gaza Strip.

What Honest Abe Learned From Geometry

In 1865, the Reverend J.P. Gulliver asked Abraham Lincoln how he came to acquire his famous rhetorical skill. There’s something special about geometry, as any high-school student or former high-school student can tell you. Geometry is the cilantro of math: Few people have neutral feelings about it. There are those who hate it, who say geometry was the moment when math stopped making sense to them. Herndon once found Lincoln in a haggard state, having spent two full days trying to solve the old conundrum of squaring the circle.

Ralph Lauren’s workwear-inspired subbrand Double RL is currently selling a pair of jeans covered with Jackson Pollock-esque paint splotches. In the 1990s, Helmut Lang sold coveted jeans with a restrained sprinkling of white paint. In 2018, Japanese designer Junya Watanabe released an entire collection built around paint-drenched chore coats and Levi’s jeans. Several years ago, New York brand Bode kicked off a trend for doodled-on garments with its $1,000-plus corduroys featuring hand-drawn images. Mr. Cohen believes that shoppers gravitate toward Alchemist’s in-house line of paint-splattered clothing because it reflects a human touch.

Israel and Hamas May Reach Cease-Fire Soon, Officials Say Both sides said they were close to an agreement to end more than a week of fighting. Israeli officials say cease-fire may be reached within two days. But delays in reaching a possible cease-fire have taken place because the Egyptians, who are helping coordinate the negotiations, have had trouble contacting senior Hamas officials. Israeli media has reported that Israeli officials do not expect the bombing to stop until Friday at the earliest. Israeli officials have said that as long as rockets continue to be fired at Israel from Gaza, Israel will continue to bomb the territory.

Israel has called up 9,000 reservists and massed troops along its border with Gaza.
