Scottish Parliament to hold vote on Unexplained Wealth Order into Donald Τrump’s finances

The shocking part about this story isn’t that the Scottish gov’t hasn’t yet voted on this, but rather that this is at least the third fucking time Sturgeon has to be pushed to do this by members of her gov’t.

What the F is she waiting for

If Trump fraudulently acquired the properties, or used them to launder money, then seize them and sell them.

US Officials Admitted They Violated A Court Order When They Expelled 32 Immigrant Children To Guatemala : worldnews

Because that’s not the law for asylum seekers. It wouldn’t even make sense. To be fair, the title is misleading as these aren’t immigrants, they’re refugees.

If you are eligible for asylum you may be permitted to remain in the United States. To apply for asylum, file a Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, within one year of your arrival to the United States. There is no fee to apply for asylum.

Biden team says won’t lift Europe, Brazil travel restrictions despite Trump order : worldnews

This travel ban is incredibly frustrating.

Yes, there is a pandemic happening and travel should be restricted. However, blanket travel bans with no exemptions have implications as well. Personally, my fiancé lives in the UK, and has been barred from the US since March. Other than travelling to the UK (still risky international travel), there’s no way around this separation. I’m not the only one; there have been various groups of separated families/partners arguing for travel exemptions.

Figured I’d throw my own two cents in. There’s a ton of talk about mental health, but it’s hard to take care of yourself when you can’t live your life with any degree of joy with the people you love.

Indonesian Company Admits To Deceiving U.S. Banks In Order To Trade With North Korea, Agrees To Pay A Fine Of More Than $1.5 Million : worldnews

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 76%. (I’m a bot)

“BMJ duped U.S. banks into processing payments in violation of our sanctions on North Korea. Strict enforcement of the sanctions regime pressures North Korea to move away from engaging in dangerous and belligerent activities, including weapons of mass destruction proliferation. The Department is committed to taking such enforcement actions in the hope that one day North Korea will reintegrate itself into the community of nations.”

Pursuant to the agreed statement of facts adopted in the deferred prosecution agreement, BMJ admitted in part that it sold products to two North Korean companies as well as a Chinese trading company while knowing that those products were destined for North Korea.

At the time, U.S. sanctions on North Korea prevented, among other things, correspondent banks in the United States from processing wire transfers on behalf of customers located in North Korea.

long-delayed arrival of Turkey’s order of vaccines from Chinese and Beijing’s abrupt move to ratify 2017 extradition deal with Ankara. : worldnews

If the report is true

What report? I went through the article just to make sure, and there are no mentions of any “reports” of such a deal being made for vaccines in exchange for Uighur Muslims. The only thing referring to this in the article is the accusation of this happening over loosely linked mentions of recent vaccine sales and extradition agreements being signed between the two countries.

The opposition party in Turkey made the accusation, but there have been no connected “reports”.
