EU moves to strengthen external borders amid mandatory quotas of asylum seekers

Peace and Freedom


A proposal to give the EU’s executive the power to send forces unbidden into member states to defend the common European frontier will face resistance from some countries when it is published this week.

The European Commission wants to be able to deploy personnel from a new European Border and Coastguard Agency without, as currently required, the consent of the state concerned, EU officials told Reuters in early December, reflecting frustration with Greek reluctance to seek help with migrants.

European Union officials call it a largely theoretical “nuclear option” and stress that any infringement of national sovereignty would be balanced by the power of a majority of member states to block Commission intervention – similar to checks agreed during the euro debt crisis.

Hong Kong’s top judges say judicial reviews essential for good governance, fundamental to rule of law

Peace and Freedom

By Gary Cheung
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong’s first chief justice after the 1997 handover, Andrew Li Kwok-nang, has defended the rising number of judicial reviews taking up officials’ time as a positive outcome of good governance, pointing out that justice and convenience were “sometimes not on speaking terms”.

Li, who presided over the judiciary from 1997 to 2010, maintained that the judiciary was in good shape and dismissed as unjustified recent criticism by a retired Court of Final Appeal judge that it had failed to meet contemporary needs.

In a robust defence of the judicial reviews that may inconvenience the authorities, he emphasised that the courts had an effective mechanism to stop any attempt to abuse the process.

Describing judicial reviews by an independent judiciary as “fundamental to the rule of law”, Li urged that they not be viewed as a “nuisance” to government.

Barristers money for their firms for hurting our children and alienating the parents

The lawyers are all in the racketeering ring criminal organization called the law societies …, two Alienated Fathers speak openly about the corrupt Family Law System in Sault Ste Marie Algoma, saying “I live in fear for the safety of my children every day. I fear of receiving the phone call all alienated parents fear getting, something has happened to your child.” What else is The Algoma Children’s Aid Society hiding that they do not want found out? Why is such abuse and insults towards loving parents continue to be allowed and permitted in Family Law??

Charlie Mercieca & Vincent Schiele talking about the Sault Ste Marie Lawyers offices concerning the interests of their children on Dec 11 2015 7:00pm Phone audio recording,

It is natural and expected for al loving and capable parent to long for his/her child. A natural bond between child and parent maliciously destroyed with the aid and expertise of Kristi Whitefield, Melanie Dunn, Heather Mandes office… or any other Barrister & Solicitor lawyers office writing and wording affidavits and conference briefs contradicting the bond and love of the alienated and targeted parent. Lawyers claiming and misguiding justice on request of their paying clients to stipulate and deny indispensable access to the children.

They* will hurt their own children, lie to authorities, and manipulate services to push the other parent away, often leaving life long emotional scars on their children. And in most cases, they will abuse their children in the name of “protecting” them from the other parent. They will tell anyone that will listen that they are the good parent and have in some way been victimized by their ex-spouse.
~ Hi Vincent. Can I get an educated opinion from you? It seems that since you’ve exposed your ex, the Algoma CAS, Sault Ste Marie Family Courts etc etc, that you have at least overnight weekend access with your daughter (unsupervised) in your home. As you know, I’ve also exposed those ppl at my end with some clear, undeniable evidence but yet, these agencies won’t back off and fix things. What’s you’re educated opinion as to why? Thanks. ~
