“So it is still the responsibility of the Sudanese state to act on those matters.” An African Union (AU) panel on Darfur, headed by former South African president Thabo Mbeki, has submitted its report to the pan-African body. Mbeki argued, however, that for justice to be effective, it had to be accompanied by peace and reconciliation. 9 September 2009 Mbeki said the panel’s research turned up no desire among Darfuris for independence from Sudan. However, he noted that while Darfuris didn’t want to secede from Sudan, their feelings of marginalisation and underdevelopment should be recognised. “The resolution of the conflict in Darfur has to be brought about by the Sudanese people themselves and cannot be imposed from outside,” Mbeki said at the handover in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Source: BuaNews “That root cause is the marginalisation and underdevelopment of Darfur as a result of policies and practices implemented throughout Sudan during both the colonial and post-colonial periods,” Mbeki said. Delivering the panel’s findings to AU Commissioner Jean Ping on Thursday, Mbeki said that the Darfur conflict could only be resolved by the Sudanese people. He pointed out that while the panel’s mandate had been confined to Darfur, they had had “no choice but to consider the wider Sudan setting as it relates to the resolution of the conflict in Darfur”. Justice, peace and reconcilliation Mbeki said all parties in the region agree that Sudan’s judicial system must take the lead role in Darfur war crime prosecutions. “Whatever the ICC might have done does not absolve Sudan from acting on crimes that might have been committed,” he said. The panel was created in February as the International Criminal Court (ICC) was about to prosecute Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who was charged with two counts of war crimes: pillaging, and intentionally directing attacks against civilians. “Our interlocutors also recognised the reality that the objectives of peace, justice and reconciliation in Darfur are interconnected, mutually independent, equally desirable and cannot be achieved separately from one another,” he said. ‘No desire to secede’
Virtualization is now viewed as viable for companies of all sizes. VMware leads the market by a longshot but there are a number of vendors to choose from.PCWorld compared the leading virtualization vendors in a five-part series that ran earlier this month.Overall, VMware leads the group of vendors, which included Citrix Xen Server; Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V R2; Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 2.2 and VMware VSphere.But PCWorld says the gap is closing fast. All are viable in a production environment. The largest of companies still see virtualization as the best option but small and mid-sized companies have options to choose from as seen in this feature chart that PCWorld posted: Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#cloud#Virtualization alex williams Microsoft is VMware’s closest competitor. PCWorld:Among the three challengers, Microsoft Hyper-V comes closest to VMware vSphere in overall management functionality. However, whereas VMware, Red Hat, and Citrix combine virtualization host and VM management in a single management server, Microsoft spreads the functions across multiple System Center tools. Hyper-V’s advanced capabilities come at the cost of additional overhead, configuration, and complexity for administrators.That last sentence sums up the challenges to those considering virtualization. It’s no longer the cost that should keep customers from adopting virtualization. Instead, it’s the expertise required that should become one of the biggest considerations.

Sanjeev Baliyan, BJP MP and an accused in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots cases, said on Sunday that he had written to the Yogi Adityanath government requesting withdrawal of the cases registered against BJP leaders. His claim comes a day after the government said it had written to the District Magistrate and Senior Superintendent of Police, Muzaffarnagar, asking for their opinion on withdrawing the cases in “public interest.” “The Samajwadi Party booked many innocent people during the riots. That is why I wrote to the State Law Minister Brijesh Pathak. I told him that all these cases were fake. I requested a fresh probe because there was hardly any solid evidence in many cases and people were booked as part of a political vendetta,” Mr. Baliyan said on Sunday. “I requested the Law Minister that if the fresh investigation reveals trumped up charges, then all the cases should be withdrawn,” he said. Mr. Baliyan himself is an accused in two cases of inflammatory speeches and was charged with provoking the violence that killed more than 60 people in Muzaffarnagar and Shamli in August 2013.Among the leaders booked in the riots cases are Bijnor MP Bhartendu Singh; Cane Development Minister in the Yogi Adityanath Cabinet Suresh Rana; Budhana MLA Umesh Malik; and party leader Sadhvi Prachi. Jats’ demandMeanwhile, the Jat community and its various khaps too have demanded that the riot cases against its members be withdrawn. “The riots were orchestrated to mobilise and communally polarise voters. The announcement that the Yogi government would withdraw riot cases against its party leaders shows the double standards of the present government. Our demand is that if the government plans to rescue its party leaders, then hundreds of Jat youths who are in jail too must get that relief,” said Naresh Tikait, chief of the politically influential farmers’ body Bharatiya Kisan Union.

Four members of Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba(LeT) have sneaked into Mumbai recently to carry out “violent” attacks with the aim of causing “destruction”, police said on Thursday night.Police also released the photograph of one of them and issued an advisory to the citizens of this metropolis to remain alert.”The four were identified as Abdul Kareem Moosa, Noor Abu Ilahi, Walid Jinnah and Mahfooz Alam. The four recently sneaked into the city to carry out extremely dangerous activity,” Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy told a news conference. Roy also released a sketch of Jinnah.The strikes were being planned in connection with possibly the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s festivities, he added.Roy said he had no information on the nationalities of the four persons.On Tuesday, the Centre had sounded a terror alert for Mumbai and Ahmedabad following specific Intelligence inputs that the LeT teams may have entered the two western cities to carry out strikes.The four persons are in the age group of 20 to 30 years, Roy said.”The four persons are planning violent attacks that is going to cause destruction,” the JPC (Crime) warned.The information of the plans by the terrorists are “fairly specific”, he said, adding “We believe the threat is serious.”Roy also said Mumbai Police has formed Special cells in a bid to “neutralise” the four terrorists. He did not want to speculate whether more than four LeT men have entered the metropolis which witnessed the country’s worst ever terror strike in November 2008 killing 166 people.advertisementThe police have set up dedicated phone number — 022-22633333 — to enable the people pass on information about the militants and in the event of an emergency.”Citizens can call up at the dedicated number or at 100, if they spot the one whose photo was released,” Roy said.In September, police released photographs of two suspected foreign terror suspects–a clean-shaven Kalimuddin Khan alias Rameshwar Pandit (28) and bearded Hafij Khijir Ulla Sarif (25) sporting a skull cap–on the eve of Eid and Ganeshotsav festivities. But the duo could not be traced.A Crime Branch source said that Kalimuddin was a Pakistani and Sarif was from Bangladesh and both were suspected to be members of terror outfit HuJI.Police were taking utmost precautions and massive deployment of police have been made at all sensitive locations, worship places and crowded places to ensure safety of the citizens, Roy said.Several police teams have been formed to track the four who are believed in aged between 20 to 30 years, police sources said.”On the eve of Ganesh festival, we had released the photographs of two terror suspects and alerted the citizens.The ten-days of the festival went off peacefully. Now also we feel that the citizens will remain and help us in all possible way and we hope everything goes fine,” Roy said.Asked if it was the same input given by Central agencies two days back, Roy said, “We are not in a position to reveal our sources.”Asked if security agencies lost track of the four due to which they had to issue advisory and release the photo, Roy replied, “We have not lost their track. But we want to keep the citizens alert as well.” He refused to divulge as to how the LeT men entered the city.Security forces launched “house-to-house” searches in some specific areas in Mumbai, sources said.A three dimensional security apparatus– land, air and water — has been put in place, particularly around the Taj Mahal Hotel, one of the sites of the 26/11 carnage.Roads near the iconic Taj remained closed from today for 15 days and the area is under complete surveillance.Similar security arrangement was in place near Taj during the visit of US President Barack Obama, who stayed in the plush hotel, in early November.Parking on the roads around Taj has been banned for the same period and the cars of guests of Taj and residents around the hotel would be allowed but only after thorough checking.The residents would be soon provided with security stickers for their cars to avoid inconvenience.Colaba area, particularly the places, including the Gateway of India, where large crowds are expected during the festivities, would be under complete surveillance through high resolution CCTVs.The sea-front up to five nautical miles was being guarded round the clock by police armed with advanced boats and sophisticated equipment, police said.Police are also co-ordinating with Navy and Coast Guard officials who are conducting air surveillance.
