<<Judge orders new trial for US woman sentenced to six years for trying to register to vote. A Memphis judge has ordered a new trial for Pamela Moses, a woman who was sentenced to six years in prison for trying to register to vote. The case attracted national attention in recent weeks, following a Guardian report, because of the severity of the sentence. Moses said she had no idea she was ineligible. Moses has been in prison since December, when her bond was revoked. On Thursday, the Guardian revealed new evidence in the case that had not been produced at the trial. Moses was being released from custody on Friday, according to Claiborne Ferguson, her attorney. <We are so excited that the motion for new trial was granted for Pamela Moses today and that she is able to return home to her family while she awaits trial. We hope that she receives justice and is found not guilty for the admitted mistakes of the state of Tennessee,> said Dawn Harrington, the executive director of Free Hearts, a criminal justice organization in Tennessee that supported Moses. Moses was convicted last year for submitting a document in 2019 indicating she was eligible to vote. Prosecutors said she knew that this was false, because just months before a judge issued an order telling Moses she was still on probation for a 2015 felony. In Tennessee, people on felony probation cannot vote. When she turned in the form, Moses believed that the probation for her 2015 felony had expired, and a probation officer even signed a certificate indicating that this was the case and that she was eligible. Prosecutors said that Moses deceived the officer into signing the certificate. But evidence obtained by the Guardian this week showed that corrections officials investigated the error immediately afterwards and determined that the probation officer – identified as Manager Billington – was negligent and made an error while Moses waited in the lobby of his office. <Manager Billington advised that he thought he did due diligence in making his decision,> Joe Williams, an administrator in the department of corrections, wrote in an email to Lisa Helton, a top department official. <Manager Billington failed to adequately investigate the status of this case. He failed to review all of the official documents available through the Shelby county justice portal.> >>

<<Biden nominates Ketanji Brown Jackson to become first Black woman on supreme court.
Joe Biden on Friday nominated judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the supreme court, seeking to elevate a Black woman to the nation’s highest court for the first time in its 232-year history. Jackson, 51, was nominated to succeed justice Stephen Breyer, 83, for whom she clerked. Breyer, the most senior jurist in the court’s three-member liberal wing, will retire at the end of the court’s current session this summer. <Judge Jackson is an exceptionally qualified nominee as well as an historic nominee, and the Senate should move forward with a fair and timely hearing and confirmation,> the White House said in a statement. Born in Washington and raised in Miami, Jackson clerked for three federal jurists, including Justice Stephen Breyer himself. Jacksonsits on the powerful US court of appeals for the DC circuit, after winning bipartisan approval during her Senate confirmation last year, when Biden elevated her from the federal district court in the District of Columbia. Born in the nation’s capital and raised in Miami, Jackson clerked for Breyer during the supreme court’s 1999-2000 term. She is a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School. Among her many legal jobs, Jackson worked as a public defender, an experience that sets her apart from many judges sitting on the federal bench. In its statement, the White House added that Biden has sought a nominee <who is wise, pragmatic, and has a deep understanding of the constitution as an enduring charter of liberty>. It added: <The president sought an individual who is committed to equal justice under the law and who understands the profound impact that the supreme court’s decisions have on the lives of the American people.> >>

<<Tycoon’s son sentenced to death in Pakistan in high-profile rape and murder case. Zahir Jaffer tortured and beheaded Noor Mukadam, in July last year, in case that sparked outrage over violence against women. A court in Islamabad has sentenced to death the tycoon’s son who raped and murdered Noor Mukadam, a case that sparked outrage in Pakistan.
Mukadam, 27, the daughter of a former Pakistani diplomat, was held captive, tortured and beheaded in July last year by Zahir Jaffer, a member of a well-known industrialist family. Jaffer, 30, a Pakistani-American citizen, is thought to have attacked Mukadam after she refused his marriage proposal. Two household employees of Jaffer, a guard and a gardener, were both sentenced to 10 years for abetting the murder. The court heard they had blocked the young woman’s attempts to leave the luxury mansion. Jaffer’s parents, who had faced charges in connection with covering up the killing, were acquitted by the court. After a lengthy trial that began in October, Judge Ata Rabbani on Thursday sentenced Jaffer to be hanged.
Shaukat Ali Mukadam, Noor’s father, said the verdict was a <victory for justice> and thanked the media for keeping the matter alive.
<Today, an exemplary punishment has been given to the main accused. Today, my daughter’s soul will be content to some extent. We are happy as far as the principal accused is concerned,> he told reporters outside the courtroom. Prosecution lawyer Shah Khawar said: <Justice has been served, and today’s verdict will empower Pakistani women at large. We will challenge the acquittal of his parents at the higher court.>
The murder, and the efforts to protect the wealthy killer, had caused outrage in Pakistan where, despite high rates of brutal violence against women, there are low conviction rates, with most perpetrators going uncharged.>>

<<US supreme court
Biden interviews three Black women as potential supreme court picks – reports. Joe Biden has interviewed at least three potential supreme court nominees and is expected to reveal his decision by the end of this month, according to multiple sources close to the president. Ketanji Brown Jackson, Leondra Kruger and J Michelle Childs – all Black women – were among the contenders who spoke with the president, those familiar with the matter told CNN and the Washington Post. Jackson, who has widely been considered the frontrunner, currently sits on the US court of appeals for the DC circuit after replacing the attorney general, Merrick Garland, in June 2021. Kruger is an associate justice of the California supreme court and has served as the acting principal deputy solicitor general under the Barack Obama administration. Childs currently sits on the US district court for the district of South Carolina and was previously nominated by Biden for a seat on the DC circuit court of appeals.
The impending retirement of supreme court associate justice Stephen Breyer has given Biden has the opportunity to fulfill one of his campaign promises: to appoint a Black woman to the supreme court. On Sunday evening Cedric L Richmond, director of the White House office of public engagement, told members of the organization Win With Black Women that <we’re close>.>>

<<‘They torched our clubhouse’… but Sicilian rugby team won’t let mafia win.

Gloria Mertoli’s shift is over when the first light of dawn shines on the goalposts of a rugby pitch in the Librino district of Catania, a stronghold of the Cosa Nostra, the feared Sicilian mafia. Since mobsters torched the clubhouse and team bus, she and other players on the women’s rugby team, Briganti Librino RUFC, have taken turns to stay after evening practice and guard the area overnight.
Since the club started working to take children – easy targets for mafia recruitment – off the streets of Librino, the clans have tried to put it out of business. Librino is a complex neighbourhood,> Piero Mancuso, one of the founders of the Briganti, told the Observer. <new it wouldn’t be easy to work here. These criminal attacks risked destroying everything we had achieved in recent years. But if I look at what we have done so far, I can say that these attacks have made us stronger.> The story of the small Briganti team from Catania has made news around the world and received expressions of solidarity from England’s national rugby coach, Eddie Jones, as well as from former England captain Bill Beaumont. Even World Rugby has expressed its support for the team. Last year, the amateur rugby team from Bolton, with a 150-year heritage, forged a partnership with the Sicilian team. <For the people of Librino, rugby offers an alternative to a potential life of crime on the streets,> said the Bolton chairman, Mark Brocklehurst, in a note last year. <If we can help Briganti by offering a glimmer of hope, then amazing things can happen. What better motivator for Bolton to get involved?>
The Briganti, which runs several junior and senior teams, as well as women’s teams across multiple age groups, was established in Librino in 2006, with the goal of doing more than simply playing rugby.>>

<<‘Elephant in the room’: Jordanian women and equal rights
Recognition of ‘Jordanian women’ in the kingdom’s constitution ignited a brawl in parliament and debate over their status under the law.

Amman, Jordan – A political feud in parliament erupted into a fistfight during a discussion to add <Jordanian women> to a constitutional clause on equal rights. The new amendment, which passed with 94 votes of 120 parliamentarians present last month, changed the title of the constitution’s second chapter to <Rights and duties of Jordanian men and Jordanian women>, adding the feminine pronoun for Jordanians, <al-urduniat>. Some activists argue the amendment is useless; only an escape route to avoid the real legal changes the constitution needs to properly support women. <It’s running away from the elephant in the room,> said Salma Nims, the Jordanian National Commission for Women (JNCW) secretary-general, referring to continuously neglected demands to add <sex> to Article 6 of the constitution, which now only bans discrimination based on <race, language, and religion>. Nims added the recent amendment is not legally binding, given the title of a constitutional chapter <has no legal effect>. Minister of Political and Parliamentary Affairs Musa Maaytah said in Jordan’s state media that adding <Jordanian Women in came in <honour and respect to women>.
Nims questioned Maaytah’s reasoning, responding, <What? I am not asking you to honour me by using a term. It is not about honouring women, this is a constitution, you use it for legal purposes.>
Others fear the amendment will have long-term legal repercussions, specifically impacting Jordan’s family affairs laws – based on Islamic legal teachings and the nationality law – fearing the expansion of eligibility for Jordanian citizenship. <The addition of ‘Jordanian women’ is dangerous in the long run for society, and for the family,< said former lawmaker and member of the Islamic Action Front (IAF) Hayat al-Musami. >>
