The famous South African Athlete Oscar Pistorius who was charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp is no allowed to travel abroad. The judge has lifted the athlete’s travel ban allowing him to fly to other countries outside South Africa. The judge said on a statement that they are allowing Oscar Pistorius’ lawyer to have his passport instead of the court taking it. This has also given the athlete his right to travel.
The Judge, Bert Bam did not find any reason of forbidding him to travel outside South Africa when the athlete will be asked to compete. The court has issued the athlete to give his itinerary details one week before he travels. He was also asked to give all his travel documents to his lawyer within the span of 24 hours when he will get back to South Africa. Aside from allowing Mr. Pistorius to travel, he can also drink alcohol and is allowed to go home to the place where his girlfriend died or the exact location where the crime occurred.
The Judge said that before the athlete was not allowed to go back to the scene of the crime and is asked to report to the police station twice in a week. This was indicated in a court order that was signed by the athlete. A new order that was released by the magistrate was considered to be good news for the legal team of the athlete. When the travel ban was lifted it also allows the famous Olympic athlete to join competitions outside the country even when he was still on trial.
There has been an increasing rate of medical negligence in hospitals. This is considered a troubling case that Medical Centers are facing. When this occurs, the only way a patient can have justice is through making a compensation claim for medical negligence. According to the Chief Executive if the Law Society of England and Wales, Desmond Huston, it is the only way the patient can get justice when he or she would be a victim of medical negligence.
In April last year the risk has already increased to £18 Million. The concerned officials say that this was caused by the “No win, No Fee” for the cases. On the contrary, there are others who said that it is because of the life expectancy which is already increasing and the modern machines that are capable of curing the sickness of patients. Every citizen in the United Kingdom is entitled to make his or her own claim if they have been affected. This right should be known to all the citizens. There might be others who are unaware about the claim or how to make a claim.
The medical board is the one responsible to check on the claim on medical negligence. It is also a huge responsibility for the board to make the patient feel better or be in better shape. They would make it possible to provide the necessary equipment and new technology that is said to be expensive. Government would not put the blame on the no win, no fee cases. Mr. Huston also stressed out that every citizen deserves to be compensated if ever they experience medical negligence.

One of the UK’s most famous landmarks, the Tower of London, is at the centre of a curious security breach. It would appear that someone has broken into the building – home to the world famous Crown Jewels – and stolen a set of keys. An investigation is underway, and disciplinary procedures have begun. Historic Royal Palaces, which administers the Tower, said that the keys did not give direct access to the building, but the theft did represent a notable security breach.
Man Caught Trespassing
A man is reported to have been caught trespassing on the premises on the 6th of November, and was subsequently escorted from the site. The Tower of London was begun in 1080 on the orders of William the Conqueror, and is better known for people wanting to get out than to break in. It has been used as, variously, a prison, a home, a zoo and – most famously – a place of execution during its colourful life, and is visited by many tourists who are give tours and informed of its fascination history.
The Crown Jewels are undoubtedly one of the star attractions at the Tower, and have a history that is very much of their own. Ironically, one of the most famous traditions at the Tower is the Ceremony of the Keys, a 700 year-old ceremony in which a Yeoman of the Guard (one of the famous Beefeaters) locks the Tower every night. The Tower has been subject to security breaches during its illustrious history, not least a legendary attempt – in 1671 – to steal the Crown Jewels that was foiled by a warder.
A statement regarding the latest incident reads:
“Our well-established security systems and procedures are robust. However on this occasion, these procedures were not carried out to the expected standard.”
The true expanse of the PPI financial scandal committed by banks, financial institutions and other lending companies in the United Kingdom is as immense as the Financial Services Authority tells it to be. Almost every citizen in the country is potentially mis sold at least one to three payment protection insurance policies costing an average of £2750 each. Claims management companies such as www.PPICo.org state that most customers might potentially have two to four PPI with their financing.
The consumer group Which? first made a collective complaint with thousands of customers about the selling methods of financial advisers, who they mentioned to have used generalizations to skip explaining about the insurance policy’s exclusions. The formal complaint was investigated by the Financial Services Authority, who then discovered that virtually all UK borrowers may be mis sold PPI.
Financial advisers often lead customers to believe that the insurance policy is a requirement for the loan application. They also hint to customers that PPI can increase their chances of getting their application approved. Customers are also led to understand that the PPI is a free product because of their high credit scores.
Based on further investigation, PPI was the main source of income for banks and financial institutions during the insurance boom of 2005 to 2007. It was sold in a way that customers will not notice the amounts they repay for the insurance while guaranteeing at least £1 billion in profit for banks.
Today, the total amount of payment protection compensation is now at £12.96 but financial analysts state that it can reach at least £16 billion by the time the PPI crisis has slowed down. The Financial Ombudsman recently reached its 500,000th PPI claim which signifies that the country is halfway to getting back all the repayments they deserve
