Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Joshua Wong, 21, was sentenced to another jail term of three months on Wednesday for his role during the 2014 "Umbrella Movement" street occupation protests, according to the South China Morning Post. Wong chose not to fight the contempt of court charge that was levied against him after he refused to follow a court injunction order and leave a protest site. Long has already started serving a six-month jail term last August for a separate unlawful assembly charge but was granted bail by Hong Kong's highest court, who heard the appeal against the sentence on Tuesday and would decide upon the case at a later date. High Court Judge Justice Andrew Chan Hing-wai...

|'Bookkeeper of Auschwitz' appeals for clemency in last effort to avoid prison|
Added: 16.01.2018 23:06 | 0 views | 0 comments
A former Auschwitz death camp guard has launched a bid for clemency in a final bid to avoid serving his sentence as an accessory to murder, German authorities said on Monday. Attorneys for Oskar Groening, 96, filed the appeal with prosecutors in Lueneburg, where he was convicted in 2015 as an accessory to the murder of 300,000 Jews. He was sentenced to four years in prison, but hasn't yet spent any time behind bars because of the appeals process. His role documenting prisoners' belongings saw him nicknamed the "bookkeeper of Auschwitz". Lueneburg prosecutors' spokeswoman Wiebke Bethke said her office would likely make a decision on the clemency request this week, in consultation with the panel of judges who convicted Groening. She said she wasn't permitted to give details of Groening's argument for why he shouldn't serve his sentence. A doctor has previously declared Groening fit to go to prison so long as there is appropriate medical care. Groening exhausted his last chance at legal appeals in December when the country's highest court rejected his attorneys' argument that imprisoning him would violate his constitutional right to life and physical safety. The Federal Constitutional Court noted, however, that German law allows for prison sentences to be interrupted if a prisoner's health deteriorates significantly. Hannover prosecutors, who have been handling Groening's case, told The Associated Press that Groening hasn't yet been summoned to report to prison following the final court ruling, but that consideration of the clemency appeal shouldn't delay that process. Groening testified at his trial that he oversaw the collection of prisoners' belongings and ensured that valuables and cash were separated to be sent to Berlin. He said he witnessed individual atrocities, but didn't acknowledge participating in any crimes. The court that convicted him ruled, however, that he was part of the "machinery of death," helping the camp function and collecting money stolen from the victims to help the Nazi cause, and thus could be convicted as an accessory to the murders committed there.
