German Court Upholds Right To Be Forgotten Of A Murder Convict

A German court asserts people’s “right to be forgotten”in online searches while deciding a case related to a 1982 murder case. The man convicted for the murders was given life imprisonment but later released in 2002. But his name is still linked to that case.

What was the 1982 murder case?

The incident happened in Germany where a crew member of yacht Apollonia shot two people and injured third on board the yacht. Convicted for murder, he was sent to life imprisonment but released in 2002. But his name still appears in the search results of that 1982 incident and he has been fighting to distance his name and his family from that charge.

Where did his name appear?

A German news magazine Der Spiegel published three reports about the incident in 1999. These reports carry full name of the person convicted for the murders. But he came to know about the search results carrying his name in 2009. Surprised, he requested the court to remove his name from the Internet because it was prohibiting his personality development. But a federal court turned down his request in 2012.

Imran Khan Believes That Trees Produce Oxygen At Night

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said something that is very serious but ended up making a joke of himself. Whether it was a tongue-slip or lack of knowledge, he made people laugh throughout the night.

Why did Imran Khan say?

“Trees produce oxygen at night,” said Pakistan PM Imran Khan while highlighting the drawbacks of removing earth’s green cover. He said that trees clean air but soon after he made a blunder that went viral. Going with the flow, he said trees produced oxygen at night.

How was Imran Khan caught red-handed?

Pakistan journalist Naila Inayat shared a 15-seconds video of Imran Khan with the caption “Trees produce oxygen at night: Einstein Khan shows the minister addressing an audience.”

Twitterati were first to react and some of them even demanded Nobel Prize for Imran Khan. People made mockery of the knowledge of Imran Khan. One Twitterati uploaded a page from school book of 7th standard showing that trees don’t produce oxygen at night.

Devendra Fadnavis Goes BS Yeduyurappa

Devendra Fadnavis Goes BS Yeduyurappa Way In Maharashtra Politics

The drama that unfolded in Maharashtra reminds of 2018 Karnataka incident when BS Yediyurappa became chief minister for 56 hours. The fractured mandate of 2018 Karnataka election prevented BJP to form a majority government and its misadventure resulted in public humiliation.

Karnataka government formation in 2018

BJP secured only 105 seats from the 224 legislative assembly seats in Karnataka in 2018 elections. The other seats went to Congress 80 and JD(S) 37. With no party in the position to stake claim to power, BJP moved ahead. The majority mark in Karnataka is 113.

Governor VajubhaiVala invited Yediyurapp to form the government despite the other parties – Congress and JD(S) – claiming to have the majority to form the government. The aggrieved parties went to Supreme Court for help and the SC woke up at midnight to end the high-octane political drama of Karnataka. It ordered Yediyurappa to prove its majority in 24 hours and the former opted to resign instead of facing humiliation. But Yediyurappa again became the chief minister because the Congress JD(S) coalition could last only for 14 months.
