Brit Jailed For Breaking Singapore Quarantine Rules To Sneak Into Fiancée's Hotel Room
A British man has been jailed for two weeks in Singapore after he broke quarantine by sneaking out of his hotel room to meet his fiancée.Nigel Skea was also fined S$1,000 (£540) for leaving his room three times on September 21 last year, judge Jasvender Kaur said on Friday.Skea was twice caught “loitering along the corridor” and on one occasion the 52-year-old left his room to meet his Singaporean partner Agatha Maghesh Eyamalai, who was not in quarantine but had booked a room in the same hotel. Skea was also not wearing a mask, which is required in Singapore.Eyamalai, 39, who married Skea in November, was sentenced to one week imprisonment for abetting him.The couple had both pleaded guilty and their lawyer SS Dhillon said they would not appeal the sentencing. He told the court: “This is a classic tale of two lovers wanting to be together and trying to be as close as possible to each other, but breaching the law.” The city-state has largely brought its coronavirus outbreak under control, with less than a handful of new local cases a day, due to strict quarantining of arrivals, contact-tracing and social distancing.Singapore requires most arrivals to undergo 14 days of quarantine at government-designated hotels. Quarantine violations can be penalised with a fine of up to S$10,000 (£5,400) or up to six months in jail, or both.The island nation has jailed and fined others for breaking Covid-19 rules, while some foreigners have also had their work permits revoked.Related...Hotels 'Kept In The Dark' Over Covid Quarantine Plans, Says Best Western BossOnly 1% Of UK Arrivals Are Being Made To Quarantine In Hotels, Says Border Force Chief

If the UK government won't stop industrial fishing from destroying our oceans, activists will | Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
By dropping boulders on the bottom of the seabed, Greenpeace is preventing trawlers from ploughing up vital habitatOur oceans are in crisis. I saw it for myself while I was making my television series Hugh’s Fish Fight for Channel 4 over a decade ago. I saw the most destructive fishing practices first-hand, as I dived over the sea floor within minutes of fishing boats dragging their metal-toothed gear along the bottom and scraping everything in their path. And I witnessed the desert they created. Related: Global freshwater fish populations at risk of extinction, study finds Continue reading...

Experience: I was in a Scientology jazz band
L Ron Hubbard spent hours with us each day. I was scared the first time I met him, because I thought he could read mindsIn 1968, I was 23 and looking for answers. I was living in Texas, working in textiles, smoking a lot of marijuana, and exploring things such as Zen Buddhism. I was stoned when my neighbour spoke to me about Scientology and it sounded interesting; space cadets and all that. I started taking some courses. I was looking at it from more of a philosophical view but as you get into it, you become hooked. I was married, but my wife was smarter than me and didn’t care for Scientology. We moved to San Francisco, and I regret this, but I soon left her, thinking I was going to save the world. I joined the Sea Org in Los Angeles – an organisation within the church comprised of its most dedicated members. Following investigations by government agencies in the US, L Ron Hubbard bought a fleet of ships and moved operations offshore. The Sea Org was asked to crew them, so I went with my new wife, a Scientologist. Continue reading...

Michail Antonio's West Ham evolution from utility man to star striker
Forward has found his place and contributed to success story at a club seemingly inept at signing players in that positionFor West Ham fans there are certain sentences that, regardless of context or circumstance, are basically guaranteed to bring you out in a cold sweat. “Roberto starts in goal.” “The owner’s just tweeted again.” But if you really want to conjure up that heady brew of exhilaration, anxiety and dread-soaked foreboding, then you will struggle to improve upon these seven words: “West Ham have signed a new striker”.The revolving door of forwards signed in the 11 years that Davids Gold and Sullivan have been in charge of the club has been well-documented: from Championship makeweights (Nicky Maynard, Jordan Hugill) to established stars (Marco Borriello, Simone Zaza) to players you would swear were made up (Brian Montenegro, Wellington Paulista). Last month the club’s £45m record signing Sébastien Haller was sold to Ajax for £20m: a reminder that even in this most sparklingly successful of seasons, this has always been a club that remains true to its roots.

Doesn’t everyone chase boiled eggs down a hill to pay tribute to the resurrection? | Grace Dent
‘It wasn’t until I lived in an inter-faith household that I realised just how weird my side could sound’The wheels fell off my plans for this year’s Lent abstinence within three days. Or, more accurately, when The Parkers Arms’ “at home” quince pudding with custard was left at my front door. My choice was between giving up sugar for 40 days in a bid to re-learn the concept of sacrifice and self-discipline, or letting this structurally perfect, moist, delicate, syrupy masterpiece go to waste. “What would Jesus want?” I wondered while snaffling the entire tray like a Hungry Hippo.Soon after, I ate a piece of handmade, extra-thick millionaire’s shortbread at Tebay on the M6, which is less a service station than a delightful artisan farmshop and organic beeswax moisturiser boutique with added petrol pumps. I love Tebay because it is so wilfully bizarre. You cannot buy anything as gauche as a Krispy Kreme donut, but you can get a ukulele and an Easy Ukulele Party Classics songbook. Continue reading...

Shamima Begum Loses Bid To Return To UK In Attempt To Fight For Citizenship
Shamima Begum has lost an appeal at the Supreme Court to return to the UK to challenge the removal of her British citizenship.Announcing the decision, Lord Reed said: “The Supreme Court unanimously allows all of the Home Secretary’s appeals and dismisses Ms Begum’s cross-appeal.Begum, then 15, was one of three east London schoolgirls who travelled to Syria to join so-called Islamic State (IS) in February 2015 and lived under IS rule for more than three years.She was found, nine months pregnant, in a Syrian refugee camp in February last year, prompting then home secretary Sajid Javid to revoke her British citizenship later that month. Begum is one of 150 individuals who have had their citizenship revoked on the grounds of national security, so if it is restored it could have huge repercussions for the government. Last year, Begum took legal action against the Home Office at the High Court and the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC), a specialist tribunal which hears challenges to decisions to remove someone’s British citizenship on national security grounds.In February 2019, SIAC ruled the decision to revoke Begum’s British citizenship did not render her stateless and was therefore lawful, as she was “a citizen of Bangladesh by descent” at the time of the decision.A decision to revoke someone’s British citizenship is lawful only if an individual is entitled to citizenship of another country.At the hearing in November, her lawyers said Begum was currently in the al-Roj camp in northern Syria, where conditions are “dire”.Lord Pannick QC told the court that the Syrian Democratic Forces, which control the al-Roj camp, “do not permit visits from lawyers nor do they permit detainees to speak to lawyers”.He said the case against Begum was “no more than that she travelled to Syria and ‘aligned with IS’”, and that “it is not alleged that she fought, trained or participated in any terrorist activities, nor that she had any role within IS”.Lord Pannick added that if Begum could not return to the UK to pursue an effective appeal “the deprivation appeal must be allowed”, as there is “no other fair or just step that can be taken”.Sir James Eadie QC, representing the Home Office, told the court: “If you force the Secretary of State to facilitate a return to the UK, or if you allow the substantive appeal, the effect is to create potentially very serious national security concerns.”He said of Begum: “She married an IS fighter, lived in Raqqa, the capital of the self-declared caliphate, and remained with them for about four years until 2019, when she left from, in effect, the last pocket of IS territory in Baghuz.”Sir James argued that individuals who went to Syria to join IS pose a “real and serious” risk to national security “whatever sympathy might be generated by the age of the person when they travelled”.Begum, and Kadiza Sultana and Amira Abase, then 16 and 15 respectively, boarded a flight from Gatwick Airport to Istanbul, Turkey, on February 17 2015, before making their way to Raqqa in Syria.The three schoolgirls from Bethnal Green Academy left London shortly after Sharmeena Begum, who is no relation, travelled to Syria in December 2014.Begum claims she married Dutch convert Yago Riedijk 10 days after arriving in IS territory, with all three of her school friends also reportedly marrying foreign IS fighters.She told The Times in February 2019 that she left Raqqa in January 2017 with her husband, but her children, a one-year-old girl and a three-month-old boy, had both since died.Her third child died in the al-Roj camp in March 2019, shortly after he was born.Related...Shamima Begum Being Stripped Of Citizenship Causes Unease Among British People With Foreign Heritage Of ‘Two-Tier System’'Shamima Begum Was Groomed In The UK': Lawyer Blasts Home Secretary For Stripping Teen's CitizenshipIt Was Right To Grant Shamima Begum Legal Aid To Fight The Revocation Of Her British CitizenshipSajid Javid Accused Of Denying IS Teen's Baby 'The Chance Of Life' In UK
