Based on open and flexible architecture concepts, MaxHaus Campo Belo (located in the southern region of the city of São Paulo) was designed by businessman José Paim de Andrade, and along with the offices of the RoccoVidal Perkins+Will architecture firm, it is currently the most significant representation of the idea.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe building has 68 units with open floor plans distributed throughout 17 floors of a single residential tower. Each unit is 70 m2 and has no walls except a central core that encloses the bathroom and the wiring/plumbing shaft. In addition to this flexibility, each of these units can be connected to the unit next to it, both horizontally and vertically. This can increase the area to 140 m2, 210 m2, 280 m2, or even more in a compostable system.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciRemoving the divisions between the apartments and cutting into concrete slabs to provide access to the stairs allow for this flexibility. Double paned plate glass maxim-ar windows are strategically placed so they will not interfere with these customizations. This is also the case for the exposed concrete on the floor and ceiling which provide a modern feel and make other wall dressings unnecessary. Another feature to facilitate changing the units is the choice between a raised, monolithic or PVC floor embedded in the structure.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe items present in every unit are finishing touches and accessories that emphasize the technology and design of the building, and include: a rainfall showerhead, a bathroom with pighes marble, maxim-air windows with a brushed stainless steel frame and automatic switches controlled by an exclusive MaxHaus Apple application. However, the real attraction is the stamped aluminum door, because in addition to an award-winning design, it has a letter holder, unique peephole, a customized doorbell, the apartment number incorporated in the design of each piece, and can be operated with a remote control. These accessories and finishing touches show a combination of high residential standards and the cutting edge technology of the corporate world, which is present in the common areas.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe building follows the MaxHaus construction style, and shows an evolution of the concept. The unique design and size of the facade is completely different from other MaxHaus buildings. Moving away from traditional facades, RoccoVidal P+W projected a building that would play with size, color and lines to break the monotony of the rows of windows, revealing the compostable elements. Through framing and marking done by reflective, corrugated metallic panels and highly resistant polystyrene plates, a facade with different compositions is created.Even the concrete in the lead is part of the effect.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe building is on a 1,800 m2 piece of land located between two steep sloping roads, which allowed for two partially underground floors that can be accessed from Rua Jesuíno Maciel. In order to keep these underground floors from becoming large walls with hollow blocks for the urban environment (which is a common solution in these cases), RoccoVidal Perkins+Will decided to enhance the space between the building and the street with some landscaping and make a small but important public area for leisure. For the parking lots, vertical concrete blocks run up the two floors, along with the platband and openings for light and ventilation. The pedestrian entrance looks like a recessed niche under a large metal cube with the property logo.Save this picture!© Daniel DucciThe common areas include a pool, sauna, fitness café and entrance hall, with a central core that is completely covered in wood and concrete floors and walls. Art is displayed in the milk glass elevators and touch screen panels at MaxHaus Campo Belo. In the elevator shaft, a transparent glass wall displays graphite drawings by plastic artist Loro Verz, which accompany residents and visitors on their vertical journey.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessWhy New York Shouldn’t be a City for the One PercentArticlesCuratorial Team Announced For The 2016 Oslo TriennaleArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:São Paulo – State of São Paulo, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

Besides the apartment, multi-housing in Korea is one of the most common housing.Generally, on the low part of the multi-housing there is a parking lot, small shopping area or an office. The top floor among the upper three housing floor is mainly used by the owner of the whole housing.Save this picture!© Park sehwonMulti-family housing, which is arranged in the location of Icheon, Gyeonggi-Do, is right next to a supermarket which is the end of the traditional market street holding ‘5days market’. The client hoped their multi-family housing to include two-floor of living facilities, upper part of lease for residence and a residence for the owner on the top floor.Save this picture!© Park sehwonBefore the client required a design, he had already received a design format made by other design office. But the result did not differ from other mediocre multi-family housing, so he ordered a new design. Although it is not situated on the main street, it is a place where is easily exposed to a traditional market and a big supermarket. He desired the street landscape to be full of energy more than anything.Save this picture!© Park sehwonIn the narrow street, the site had both diagonal plane control by street width and sunshine restriction. So in the middle of the process, almost every building type was terraced building type or diagonally shaped. But it lacked something, so we decided to start from the zero point.Save this picture!First Floor PlanWe analyzed the existing multi-family housing again, noticed that those housing had balcony expanded, using the space for living room, rooms, or had a window on the balcony so that the three dimensional form disappears from the outside. Also based on the research, we realized that most of the users preferred to have external balcony rather than internal one.Save this picture!© Park sehwonThus, to get away from the standardized appearance of the existing multi-family housing, we decided to arrange the open balcony on the outside of all housing, and use the diagonal plane control, sunshine restriction asa major element of the external facade design. Actually by connecting the inside and outside, the balcony is a small courtyard that can be used for laundry drying, storage, Jang-dok-dae(platform for crocks of sauces and condiments) and air conditioner outdoor unit.Save this picture!Fourth Floor PlanFrom the first stage, we suggested to use only one material for outside. Since there are so many materials, colors and signs that lead to distraction, we needed to tone down made the black granite stone to be greyish by testing various materials. Due to the glitter in Ma-cheon-suk is mostly used to show off the surrounding motel etc, however if the finish is dabbed the stone could convey different feelings using subtle color and sunlight, and also the special texture of the material.Save this picture!© Park sehwonBecause of its different appearance from neighborhood, too conspicuous material may be harmful to be recognized. This completion of construction gives the formative impression instead of oppressive atmosphere through the balcony that is rhythmically set and makes the street vitality and energy.Save this picture!Section 2Fortunately during the construction process, construction office and the officer could feel difficult but enjoyed the construction. So they could finish it, pleasantly until the end. The client is very satisfied about the fact that rent was rapidly completed in better conditions than other multi-family housing which was built in the same period.Save this picture!© Park sehwonThe interesting thing is that the most advantageous person is not the construction office or the client but first-floor cafe owner.  It is widely considered that many people visit to explore the building itself.Project gallerySee allShow lessNature House / Junsekino Architect and DesignSelected ProjectsTsunyuji / Satoru Hirota ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Jungni-dong, Icheon-si, Gyeonggi-do, South KoreaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Not far, opposite, on a wall: I’m desperate because I’m invisible. Written in chalk on the wall of the Pierre & Marie Curie University at Saint-Antoine Hospital, this aphorism, a cry from a lost soul, has a certain resonance with the character of the future buildings of plot B1 of the Caserne de Reuilly. Visibility or legibility?The semantic nuance is important. With Diderot so nearby, we should try to use the right words to understand one of this project’s challenges.Save this picture!© Simone BossiThis small building, linked to the future extension of plot C, will help to form the entrance to a new urban space, that of the Caserne de Reuilly, that is to be given back to the city. This entranceway takes the form of a small square opening onto the rue de Chaligny and leading to the Place d’Armes of the Caserne. The legibility of the square from the rue de Chaligny must therefore depend on the design of the residential buildings on plots B1 and C.The city is composed of a substrate of housing and activity that makes up its ordinary fabric; to these, we add events, such as public facilities. These are especially important because they are open to everyone and represent the common good. They orient us and serve us, and as such, we grant them a degree of acknowledgment that distinguishes them from other buildings.Save this picture!© Simone BossiA residential building, on the other hand, is not intended to stand out from the ordinary fabric of the city. However, in some places, one can expect a treatment that reflects a specific urban situation. This, it seems to us, is the case of plot B1, for the following reasons:- the building is one of the elements that form the entrance square on rue de Chaligny,- the building negotiates the transition between a street with an eclectic architectural fabric and the austerity and power of the barracks buildings,- the building’s given geometry with its four façades is uncommon in the traditional Parisian streetscape.Save this picture!Site view 3DThe building must simultaneously be strong enough to stand alongside the massive architecture of the barracks; lend itself to opening up the heart of the renewed block, and still take its place as a simple residential building. It has to find the right position. One obvious path to follow is thinking about materiality, especially the stone of the barrack buildings. Paying attention to construction as a design element is at the heart of our approach to this project. Making an urban situation legible, making the life of a city block visible, recognising an environment, and placing a new building within a strong historical and architectural framework —obviously, there are a lot of aspirations here!Save this picture!© Gilles BretinSave this picture!Plan – 8th floorSave this picture!© Gilles BretinWhile at first sight, it stands out due to its colour, it also fits into a street full of eclectic buildings where there is nonetheless a noticeable expression of structural elements on façades. Although at first sight, the building’s colour does not seem very Parisian, it actually alludes to several red brick buildings in the street. Through these references, the new building takes its place in its context, through a delicate balance between standing out and fitting in.Save this picture!© Simone BossiInside, the 22 residential units were designed on the basis of a cross-plan, offering their inhabitants a dual circulation system in a nod to certain features of Haussmannian apartments. This design principle also allows us to take advantage of the building’s square footprint, offering multiple orientations to both the street and the barracks. To the West, on Rue de Chaligny, wide loggias extend the interior space of the apartments outward, as do the terraces from where you can watch the sunset over the Parisian skyline.We leave it to others to verify whether the intentions we brought to this project are there in this little building, all in red.Save this picture!© Gilles BretinProject gallerySee allShow lessCraig Dykers: “Many People Don’t Want Messiness.

Stop minimum wage exclusion of people with disabilities

first_imgNew York City rally on Oct. 24.A New York City rally on Oct. 24 commemorated the 75th anniversary of the minimum wage law’s passage and called for increasing it to at least $15 an hour. A city public sector union speaker stressed that U.S. law does not recognize minimum wage rights for people with disabilities. They don’t receive equal pay for equal work.Section 14c of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, which established the federal minimum wage, allows certain entities holding “special wage certificates” to pay their workers with disabilities less than that mandated by the law. These segregated workplaces or “sheltered workshops” employ workers with various physical or developmental disabilities.Federal law requires that certain goods and services procured by the government be purchased from these “sheltered workshops” in order to employ workers with disabilities, but they do not have the same protections that other U.S. workers have.The National Federation of the Blind says that more than 300,000 workers with disabilities are not paid the federal minimum wage. The organization says that many employers are profiting off the labor of workers with disabilities and often receive lucrative federal contracts, so there is no reason to pay anyone less than the minimum wage, regardless of their abilities.NBC News and Watchdog.org say Goodwill has recently paid some workers as little as 22 cents an hour. Today’s federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is 33 times what some Goodwill workers receive. By exploiting people with disabilities, company profits have funded CEO salaries totaling $30 million at 150 Goodwill franchises.On Oct. 31, the Autistic Self Advocacy Network and NFB representatives delivered a petition with 170,000 signers to Goodwill Industries’ Maryland headquarters and picketed outside. The petition demanded that the company stop paying its workers with disabilities less than the minimum wage.“Goodwill should step out of the 1930s and adopt a business model that provides real training and opportunities for workers with disabilities to earn the federal minimum wage or higher,” said Anil Lewis, NFB policy and advocacy director. (Truthout.org, Nov. 1)Lewis described employment for people with disabilities in November 2011, at the NFB blog, as “an entrenched system founded on the belief that people with disabilities are defective, a belief supported by a billion-dollar industry exploiting subminimum wage labor and perpetuating negative stereotypes about [U.S.] Americans with disabilities.“Many of these sheltered workshops could be more accurately described as prisons, albeit without bars, than as actual workplaces,” Lewis explains. “Fewer than 5 percent of the prisoners escape. … 95 percent of the people currently toiling in subminimum-wage work will spend their entire working lives in these facilities. They will never receive the needed services, training, or support to become real workers, doing real jobs, and earning real wages.”Lewis calls for eliminating “this legalized wage discrimination … to shift the paradigm from one maintaining that people with disabilities cannot perform jobs competitively to one that recognizes that, with the proper training, opportunity, and supports, even people with the most significant disabilities can be competitively employed.”Groups, including the NFB, are rallying support for The Fair Wages for Workers with Disabilities Act of 2013 (H.R. 831), which was introduced in Congress this year. If passed, it would repeal Section 14(c) of the FLSA and phase out the discriminatory practice of paying workers with disabilities less than the federal minimum wage. Unfortunately, despite NFB’s efforts, Congress has not approved similar proposed laws in previous years.In May 2013, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission won a $240 million judgment against one “sheltered workshop,” the turkey processing company Hill Country Farms, not because the company’s workers with intellectual disabilities were paid only $2 a day, but because they were severely physically and emotionally abused by their bosses and suffered from diabetes, hypertension and other illnesses.Karl Marx is known for having raised the slogan: “From each according to their abilities, to each according to their needs.”People with disabilities need the solidarity of people without disabilities to help us send the discriminatory provisions of the minimum wage laws into the dustbin of history.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Lifelong communist Frances Dostal remembered

first_imgFrances Dostal in June 2010.WW photo: Bryan G. PfeiferFrances Dostal, a founding member of Workers World Party who died Dec. 26, was remembered Feb. 1 in Cleveland by more than 100 comrades, friends and movement activists.The comments, anecdotes and solidarity messages wove together a number of common threads. Frances and her life partner Ted Dostal — who died in 2003 — were stalwart activists who rarely missed a demonstration. They were committed anti-racist fighters and solid supporters of the women’s and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer movements.Frances, a registered nurse, never failed to support nurses fighting for better conditions or union recognition. She was remembered as a revolutionary communist who taught and mentored young people turning to Marxism. Speakers referred to her keen intelligence, her welcoming disposition and her warm smile — and her admonitions to comrades to take care of their health.Many Cleveland activists paid tribute to Frances. Barbara Keenan, who met Frances and Ted in the early 1960s when they were still in Youngstown, Ohio, recalled a struggle at Youngstown State University to end the harassment of a student with progressive views. Yoshiko Ikuta, who gave greetings on behalf of Women Speak Out for Peace and Justice, knew Frances first as a union activist at Kaiser Community Health Foundation. Jerry Gordon explained that even though they often disagreed with him, Frances and Ted “were never sectarian.” Mark Bailey, who knew her through weekly peace vigils — the longest ongoing anti-war protest in the country — called her “a goodwill ambassador for Marxism.”Louise Lusczak described being on a pro-choice demonstration and, after realizing her own mother was among those protesting on the other side, finding comfort in Frances’ wise counsel. Victoria Carter remembered immediately gravitating to the Dostals, whom she met in the anti-war movement when she first moved to Cleveland. Alan Roth, now in New York, met Frances in 1970 after returning from a trip to Cuba and seeking a revolutionary socialist organization. Gene Shepherd spoke on behalf of the Ohio Nurses Association and named some important Ohio union struggles that Frances was involved in, such as the “mass resignation” in Youngstown when it was illegal for nurses to strike and the 1980-1982 Ashtabula nurses strike.Brother Abdul Qahhar, Cleveland chair of the New Black Panther Party and one of the Louisville Seven — Panthers who beat trumped up charges in the 1970s — said Frances’ spirit was “the pro-humanity spirit of the ancestors” and that “to be a revolutionary is to be chosen to make sure the planet is run right.” Brother Qahhar led the successful fight to free New York activist Abdul Haqq, framed for a Cleveland murder, which Frances and Ted were very active in.Richard Harris of Youngstown, a close friend of Workers World Party, met Frances at a meeting in 1961 to support Mae Mallory. “I started talking to Ted and Frances and we’ve been talking forever. She was a strong woman,” he said. At the time, Mae Mallory was fighting extradition from Cleveland to Monroe, N.C., over false kidnapping charges against her and Robert Williams. The real reason they were targeted was that they supported the right of the Black community to physically defend itself from the Ku Klux Klan.An ‘unshakeable revolutionary’Stewart and Valerie Robinson read a poem written for Ted and Frances in 1993 by the late poet laureate of Cleveland, Daniel Thompson. “Fran, we need a thousand like her,” was one of the lines.Workers World members from Buffalo, Detroit and New York, as well as Cleveland, paid tribute to Comrade Frances. Jerry Goldberg of Detroit said that, while revolutionaries might become estranged from their biological families, “we have to be each other’s own family, and Frances understood that better than anyone else.” Caleb Maupin of New York, who joined WW in Cleveland, recalled his first encounter with Frances, at a play about Karl Marx. During a question-and-answer session after the play, she immediately raised her hand and asked, “Why didn’t the play say anything about Marx’s involvement in the fight to abolish slavery?”Jeremy Radabaugh of Huntington, W.V., was impressed with Frances’ knowledge of theory and history during an all-night conversation on a bus trip to Washington, D.C., for a protest. Tom Scahill of Buffalo reminded us that Feb. 1 was the anniversary of the death of the founding chairperson of WW, Sam Marcy, in 1998, and remembered other founding members no longer with us: Vince Copeland, Libby Ross, Dotty Ballan, Ed Merrill and Artie Rosen. “Frances was an unshakeable revolutionary optimist,” he stated. Susan Schnur of Cleveland WW read solidarity messages from many WW branches and a number of comrades and friends. Schnur said, “Frances explained to me that the so-called ‘battle of the sexes’ is really about dividing the working class.”Sharon Eolis, a retired New York nurse, spoke of meeting Ted and Frances in 1959 and the many conversations they had on health care and organizing over the years. She also recalled the defense work for Mallory and Williams. The Dostals traveled back and forth repeatedly from Youngstown to Cleveland and put their house up as collateral to make bail for Mallory.Martha Grevatt, a long-time member of Cleveland WW now residing in Detroit, explained Ted’s arrest in 1968. Ted and Frances were supportive observers at a demonstration in defense of Black Nationalist leader Ahmed Evans. Out of respect for Mallory’s desire that this be a Black community demonstration, they did not picket. “In Workers World our white comrades do not tell an oppressed nation how to conduct the struggle. Ted and Frances understood that.” The police nevertheless arrested Ted, and he served almost six months for contempt of court — a punishment for Frances as well.Teresa Gutierrez, speaking for the Workers World Secretariat, said, “I’m honored to be representing our New York leadership. Frances was a true comrade, with a big C. I am so glad that she and Ted could visit Cuba to get a glimpse of the kind of society they dedicated their entire lives to building. We dedicate ourselves to bringing socialism to the U.S.”Led by Sharon Danann of Cleveland WW, the crowd sang “Solidarity Forever” and then closed with “The International.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Purdue says Surviving Storms and Cold Requires Preparation

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Purdue says Surviving Storms and Cold Requires Preparation SHARE Indiana residents should take extra precautions to help ensure their safety and survival as they brace for more snow and continued bitter cold, a Purdue Extension disaster education specialist advises.Indiana is expected to get more snow over the weekend, adding to what fell earlier in the week. Temperatures are forecast to drop into the double digits below zero Monday (Jan. 6) and Tuesday (Jan. 7), especially in the overnight hours, with wind chills making the temperature feel as low as minus 35 degrees.“This type of weather can kill in many different ways,” said Steve Cain, Extension Disaster Education Network homeland security project director.He said most injuries and deaths related to severe weather occur among men ages 40 and older.“This can be due to several reasons, but an important one is heart attacks from straining to remove snow,” he said. “Ask yourself if you want to risk a heart attack. Can someone else who is better prepared help remove snow?”Cain also said most injuries result from vehicle accidents. “Make sure your vehicle is winter-ready, take your time and, most of all, don’t go out into the storm if you don’t have to.”If a house loses power, it will be important to seek alternative heating to prevent hypothermia and frostbite, Cain said.“Every year I hear about someone running a generator in their garage thinking that fumes will not go back into the house,” he said. “Unfortunately, that isn’t true for almost all attached garages.”Cain also offered these other tips:* If it rains and freezes, look for ice dams built up on roofs that could be dangerous, and avoid areas where ice has built up on trees.* Remember neighbors, some of whom might not have enough heat or the ability to survive the storm. Reach out to them. “I’ve also read the devastating stories of people who needed help but couldn’t survive the walk to their neighbor’s or family’s house during the worst of a storm. This often happens to the elderly.”* A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather radio, which is widely available and can be inexpensive, is an excellent way to stay in touch with emergency officials.* Have a winter survival kit that works for you. Include medicines in a travel kit in case you are stranded and a deck of cards or other game to pass the time as you wait.* If you are caught in a vehicle, authorities suggest running the motor about 10 minutes each hour for heat. Make sure you pack a blanket before traveling. Also make sure there is proper ventilation and that the exhaust pipe is not blocked.

Pioneer Crop Update 5/12/15

first_imgWhile planting has been late this year, planting conditions have improved in Indiana and early crop development has been good. More than half (55%) of Indiana corn has been planted, up from the 21% a week ago.  Nationally 55% has been planted with Illinois leading the corn belt with 73%. Brian Early, with Pioneer, says, while some parts of the state are still wet, for the most part fields are dry enough to work, “Many fields still have some wet pockets, but most areas are dry enough and the crops have been planted into very good seedbeds.” SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – May 11, 2015 Pioneer Crop Update 5/12/15 Facebook Twitter While some growers have considered switching corn maturity dates, Early does not think this is needed at this time, “I think we still have enough time,  and I am not recommending any change in plans until the end of May or first week in June.” He added most growers still have a good planting window left. The abundant soil moisture and warmer soil temps have helped the crops get out of the ground quickly. In Indiana,12% of the corn has emerged. Early told HAT most of the corn that has been planted is emerging nicely, “It looks like about every kernel we put in the ground came up. Most also had ideal conditions after they were planted with only a few days of cold weather. The corn is coming up and developing very well.” He said, for the most part, seeding diseases have not been a problem this year primarily because the temperatures have been warm enough to prevent many problems, “The normal diseases we see this time of year have not been a problem.” Twenty percent of Indiana soybeans are now planted, and nationally 18% are in the ground. Early says conditions are good for getting the soybeans off to a good start. He said more and more growers are trying to plant their soybeans earlier than they used to, to improve yields, “A lot of guys have noticed their earlier planted soybeans do better than soybeans planted in June, so we are seeing a lot more early planting of soybeans.”  He noted that early soybean stands this year are looking good and, like corn, the crop seems to be off to a good start.

P. C. stands automatically extended in view of the March 23 order of the Supreme Court, as it has the effect of binding law by virtue of Article 141/142. On March 23, the Apex Court had directed that the period of limitation in all proceedings, irrespective of the limitation prescribed under the general law or Special Laws, whether condonable or not, shall stand extended. “Hon’ble the Supreme Court has extended the period of limitation for filing petition, appeal, revision etc. – and no such advantage of extension of period has been given to any investigating agency or statutory body”, observed the High Court. The prosecution had sought to counter the petitioner’s right to be released on default bail on account of their failure to file the final report, giving an excuse that the charge-sheet could not be filed in the wake of lock down. “Consequent to lock down, the work of investigating authority and police was not stalled. Nor it is the case of the State/Prosecution that the Board or competent Court having jurisdiction were not functioning to accept/admit charge-sheet, when sought to be filed”, said the Single Judge. “Having regard to the background in which the Hon’ble Supreme Court has passed the subject order dated 23.3.2020 and in light of what has been recorded therein, it is clear that the same was passed with a view to give relief to the litigants and lawyers”, noted the Court. “In absence of any clear stipulation in the above referred order of Hon’ble Supreme Court, in my considered opinion, the investigating or prosecuting agency cannot claim self-serving extension, under the pretence or cloak of such order. If that be permitted, statutory period of completing assessments etc. in all statutes such as Income Tax Act, GST Act etc. will stand automatically extended, which, in absence of express statutory amendments is impermissible”, further held the Single Judge. The bench noted that the government has come out with the taxation and other laws (Relaxation of Certain Provision) Ordinance, 2020. By virtue of the provisions contained in this Ordinance, the limitation or outer limit for compliance or actions/orders under various enactments has been extended. “Concededly, no amendment has been introduced in the Code, particularly in Section 167(2)”, reads the judgment. Accordingly, the Single Bench opined that in absence of any amendment in the statute and without there being any remote reference of investigation or provisions of the Code in the order of Supreme Court, taking shield of the Supreme Court’s order to take away the vested right of an accused, is nothing short of violating his right of liberty guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. In arriving at this conclusion, the Court relied on the views taken by the Maraud High Court in an order of May 8, the Kerala High Court and the Uttarakhand High Court. “As the felony for which the petitioner is to be tried, prescribes less than 10 years’ sentence, the investigating officer was required to file final report or charge-sheet within 60 days, i.e., latest by 30th March, 2020. The same has not been filed even till today”, expressed the Court, upholding the petitioner’s right to be released on bail, by offering requisite bail bonds.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Storylast_img read more
