Help Ngurang Reena and her family in seeking justice for her father, who was murdered.

 I am Ms.Ngurang Reena from Arunachal Pradesh, India. I am a 27 year old research scholar from Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi and a former Assistant Professor, Delhi University. I am writing to you as a disheartened citizen and as a grieving daughter who has just lost her father. I write on behalf of the nine daughters and sons that have been left behind tormented over our father’s death. They say, 'When decisions become arbitrary, all accountability is lost' and today, I have lost confidence in all the institutions on which I can rely for justice. Hence, I have quit my job, to fight for him. I don't know what else can I do! Please read my letter and support in my family's fight. I lost my father Ngurang Pinch last November, he was murdered. My family and I have all the reasons to believe that he was politically murdered as he was the front-runner for the upcoming 2019 election under the banner of BJP. He was immensely popular in his constituency. My father had no clue how many people and who were to join for the expedition and it was only on his arrival at the spot he learned they were twenty one of them (including him). The group consisted of ex-ministers, government employees, one police personnel, two state recognised criminals, four of his clan brothers’ (including the rafting guide). My family and I believe that the pre-planned-expansive rafting expedition, arrangement of food, rafting boats and continuous pressure on my father to join for the expedition by his friends was a well thought staged plot for his murder. He was an invitee and had no prior plans to join until the very last day when his plan to go elsewhere with the Home Minister of the state was called off. Above all, the statements provided to us by the twenty members on what had transpired on the fateful night gives out tremendous loopholes leaving us with no choice but to believe that my father’s death was a murder. While I cry and beg the country for his justice, his friends continue to live a normal life and still claim that they don't know anything about my father's death! After long eight months of persistence- sending incessant emails and messages to the media houses, publishing stories and reaching out to the PM's office, the President and The MOS State Kiren Rijuju, I had the urge to give up, I was exasperated. I felt like the country didn’t care about the helpless and voiceless.  Many news channel and journalists' shut the door on me saying I am a JNU student, it is a political/criminal case, "We don't want to get involved." And  if nothing, it is a trivial "North East story!", I cried in pain. But in the month of July 2018, when the Arunachal government headed our appeals and recommended my father’s case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), I breathe a sigh of relief.  Unfortunately, it's been two moths, and there has been no development. My family and I are  still awaiting confirmation from the CBI, on whether they will take up the case.  My father late Ngurang Pinch died too young, he was just fifty three. He had given forty years of his life in politics, he was popularly known as a public leader than a politician. At the time of his death, he was the Chairman of the Agriculture Marketing Board (APAMB) and a BJP party in-charge and coordinator for Kurung Kumey district, Arunachal. My father was born in an extremely poor family in a village called Nyapin. When he was just 16, he was child-married to my mother, who was only 13. With only two underwear, one vest and bare feet he finished his schooling in the Nyapin Government Higher Secondary School. Where he was a popular student leader. He further migrated to a town for better prospects. His political journey began at a grass-root level, from having nothing to achieving accolades. He began his journey as an Anchal Samity Member (ASM) from 1987-1992, Then he went on to become the Zila Parishad Member in the year 1992-1997 thereafter, in the year 1992-1996 he was the President DCC (I) Papum Pare District. Later, he became the Congress President District Papum Pare, AP from 1996-2000. During the 2004 general elections, my father proved his efficacy and his leadership to the state by winning the seat from the 14th Doimukh constituency as an MLA and subsequently, he was also made the Sports Chairman (2004). He became the NCP’s General Secretary and State President (2009-2010) with a close friendship with the late Member of Parliament P.A. Sangma. In the last two decades, though not in power he was loved and respected by his public. Therefore he worked hard to come back for 2019 assembly elections. Friends, my father gave all his life for public work, in his political tenure, he was a giver, an honest leader and a hardworking father and above all a great visionary. He imparted good knowledge and lessons to his children and today we are all ready to give back to our society. He did not deserve such tragic death, no one does. My family and I have all the right to know the reasons of his death. On the day he was buried, we cried in pain but mostly in anger, not knowing the reason of his death. We are disappointed in friendship and in humanity as none of the twenty members have came forward providing condolences and mostly for concealing the truth behind my father’s death. Today, I have lost all faith in humanity, let alone god. Through this petition, I am only pressing for an independent and a fair investigation on my father’s death.  Why we need you support? Tranquility is what delineates Arunachal Pradesh and one is often drawn to this part of India by its abundance green and serenity but beyond this delicate picture is a bigoted view-the one that conceals swelling failures of governance and a decayed social system. The unending political upheavals-compelling a state CM to commit suicide, the impending or already established ethnic and communal violence, exacerbated by emerging insurgency, murders, assassinations and extortions this land, is no longer the home I used to live. My family and I, along with many aggrieved families of the state have somewhere forgotten to enjoy and bask in this ‘land of the rising sun-Arunachal.’ The people of Arunachal are aghast and dismayed at the systemic violence and the distorted system with everyday reports of extortion, theft, murder and growing incidents of violence, the failure is, coherently, one of political prudence and planning. In the past three years, the state has seen 161 Murders, 26 in Itanagar itself.  While very few of them get reported, let alone solved because it is happening in a distant land-somewhere in the North-East part of India. New Delhi does not care! My father’s murder case is not an exclusive one, certainly not; I am not claiming any ‘VIP treatment’ to the case but rather I am disgusted and furious at the plight of my state and speak for all those at the receiving end of this corrupt system. Political assassinations and murders have happened here before almost making us ‘used-to’ the idea and convincing us of the politician-militant nexus here. Murder of former MP Wangcha Rajkumar and many more such as DSP (APPSCE) Bomto Kamdak (shot by a criminal at loose and still absconding). One eminent journalist of an esteemed daily was shot here at broad day light, she survived but the criminal is free, unafraid of law. An RTI activist was also falsely accused and framed for possessing illegal arms by some powerful person in the state. The concern is, the government is failing in its duty towards protecting us and we are failing miserably as society hindsight.  My family and I are for  pushing for a CBI investigation because we don’t have faith on the local administration. We know how local influences can stop us from getting justice. My state is a young evolving state where tribe/clan still takes control of our everyday lives-making administration difficult. And when the fight is against the powerful, the system also fails. However, I as an optimist citizen of India would request all of you to help us in this fight for justice. Many are as frightened as I am and the media here is also curtailed as in the rest of the democracies. One can only write as much as one is ‘allowed’ to. Today, I have nowhere else to turn to but you. They say, ‘When the horrors and pain of the people are louder than babies crying and when the cry of your neighbours make you more uncomfortable than murder itself, something is awfully wrong’.   Pease help my family and my state, before it’s too late and please help us because my father was a good man, a hardworking father and a benevolent citizen of this country, who dedicated his entire life for the public of Arunachal. My fight will also provide strength to those who are fighting against injustices. My family and I repose our faith on vigilant and thinking minds like you; on the constitution of this country, on the CBI and the judiciary, hoping that we will get justice soon.  With utmost faith, Sincerely, Ngurang Reena and her family.

Petition to Honourable Prime Shri Narendra Modi, Shri H D Kumaraswamy, Dr. G parameshwara, Sushma Swaraj

#FindAjitabh: CBI should be appointed for the case of Ajitabh kidnapped on 18th Dec 17

Kumar Ajitabh has been missing since he left his apartment on 18th December 2017 at 6.30pm. Ajitabh had posted an advertisement on Olx dated 29th November 2017, to sell his Maruti Ciaz Car and he was in a contact with several buyers among whom one suspect contacted him via WhatsApp and asked him to come at a specific location near Varthur which was the last location shared by the suspect. He had secured admission in IIM, Kolkata for the Executive MBA program. The total fees is approx. ₹26 lacs, however he needed to pay ₹5 lacs in advance by 20th December. The Missing FIR was filed on 20th and again on 29th a new FIR for kidnapping was filed with the Whitefield Police station. The Police is still clueless, asking us to wait as it needs more time to investigate. His father has filed a petition at the High Court for CBI to takeover the case which has a hearing on the 8th January 2017. This petition seek CBI enquiry in the case related to Kumar Ajitabh's kiddnapping. We believe this is part of a larger crime scene and a cartel is involved. We need a CBI inquiry to restore faith while participating in Online business and also to make sure North Indian Community feel secure and does not become soft target while working in Bangalore. Please sign this petition, so that CBI takes this case, to give justice to Ajitabh and bring him back home safely.

Petition to Crown Prosecution Service, Alison Saunders

Take domestic violence seriously in courts

Last night Manchester Crown Court’s Judge Richard Mansell ruled that he would not jail Mustafa Bashir, a man who made his wife drink bleach and, at one point, struck her over her back with a cricket bat saying: "If I hit you with this bat with my full power then you would be dead." Judge Mansell concluded she was not vulnerable enough because she was "an intelligent woman with a network of friends" and a university degree.The Judge handed out a suspended sentence of 18 months - a punishment which is not enforced unless a further crime is committed during a specified period. What message does this send out to perpetrators of domestic abuse?Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecution at the Crown Prosecution Service needs to take domestic violence seriously. Like Bashir’s partner, I went through hell with my ex, enduring domestic abuse for 18 years. At one point I was shot with a sawn-off shotgun and then beaten. My 16 year old son took his life as a result of this. I also had a network of good friends - does that mean I was not vulnerable enough too? What ignorance by the system.For years I have been saying that judges who deal with these cases don’t fully understand the issue of domestic violence, including the power dynamics of the perpetrator and victim and how it can make you a prisoner in your home - regardless of your network of friends and how intelligent you are.I am actively campaigning in the domestic abuse arena to see that all services listen to the voice of those who have and still are victims/survivors. Sadly we are experts by experience. All Judges should have mandatory domestic abuse training because their lack of knowledge is putting lives at risk, those lives of the vulnerable people.I am calling on the Alison Saunders to agree to meet me, and show that the CPS understands that work needs to be done so that Judge Mansell’s actions are never repeated.

Petition to President E.D. Mnangagwa, The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt

Justice From TEMBA PETER MLISWA who illegally seized my company.

Mr President of The New Zimbabwe  Your Excellency  "The VOICE of the people is the voice of God" Allow me to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your VICTORY.  On behalf of my wife and two boys I humbly appeal to you Mr President, the Zimbabwe Government and ZANU-PF for justice through compensation from Hon T.P MLISWA.  Hon Mliswa used the previous President Mr Robert. G. Mugabe's name in vain for personal Gain/Greed to illegally seize my companies' Noshio Motors and Benbar! He claimed Mr Mugabe "Sanctioned" this illegal seizure in line with the "indiginization" law. On 18 December 2009. He wrongfully and illegally seize my companies Noshio Motors (Pvt) Ltd incorporating Benbar/Tromps using a fake "Banda Trust" Mafia style dirty politics and his uncle Didymus Mutasa. He stated he is "Untouchable and above the law" as he has "powerful connections". He is obstructing the judiciary from doing their work in a professional manner.  Mr President you "Condemn" corrupt and illegal activities and recently gave a white farmer back the land. The country is wooing back FDI yet my companies were illegally seized by Hon Mliswa. My ONLY "Crime" white British FDI working with the amazing people of Zimbabwe. I was forced to flee Zimbabwe, with nothing but a suitcase due to death threats on my life. In the process I illegally LOST my entire investment, over One Million Pounds!  I love the amazing people of Zimbabwe, their kindness, warm smile, passion and love for God, willingness to work hard in rebuilding their Nation. What happened to me Mr President, was wrong, immoral, illegal, fraudulent, un-constitutional, against the law, a gross violation of my Human and property rights. Hon T.P MLISWA was called in, for his political muscle and "powerful connections" to prevent a forensic audit at my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar. Hon Mliswa claims a "Banda Trust" was drafted by his lawyer at the time G.N.MLOTCHWA! However as of February 2010 no such "Banda Trust" ever existed! My lawyer Victor Zvogbo did a search at the Deeds Office to verify this. HonT.P.Mliswa, SEVERELY VIOLATED MY HUMAN AND PROPERTY RIGHTS. He threatened to rape my Belgian wife, kidnap my two Belgian boys and KILL me!! My "crime"��FDI. Anti Corruption came to see me to tell me Mliswa was trying to change the Share Certificate.  Didymus Mutasa lied to the previous President. He was Presidential affairs Minister at the time. He made sure his Nephew, son and others were "Aquitted" bribing magistrates Never Katiyo and Morgan Nemadire as well as abusing his office. Johannes Tomanna (who was Mliswa's lawyer in 2000 during the Land Invasions) Prematurely closed my case without allowing FOUR other state witnesses to testify. You are a lawyer Mr President. The FACTS AND EVIDENCE are there. Please may I humbly ask you to summonds Florence Ziyambe Chris Mutangadura, Mr Dube, Mishrod Guvamende the LAW Society of Zimbabwe and Patrick Chinamasa who was Justice Minister at the time. I wrote to them all. A PRECIDENT MUST be made to show the World that Zimbabwe is definitely open for business and this will NEVER happen again to any other FDI creating employment for the amazing people of Zimbabwe.  I humbly ask and pray for your intevention in order for my family and I to rightfully receive the compensation due to us from Hon T.P MLISWA who was Provincial Chairman of Mashonaland West in the ruling Zanu-PF party at the time he illegally seized my companies Noshio Motors and Benbar.  Benbar was Zimbabwe's Number One Choice in manufacturing and Noshìo Motors was the leading supplier of motor vehicles and accessories to the entire Nation. Hon Mliswa destroyed it over night. Some workers had been there from the time of it's inception in the 90's. New potential investors want to believe the same thing will not happen to them. Hon T.P MLISWA must be held accountable for his own ACTIONS and DECISIONS in this heinous crime. HOW can he be PPC "Chairman" when he himself bribed Magistrates NEVER KATIYO and MORGAN NEMADIRE to get "ACQUITTED"? He threatened, harassed, intimidated, looted, extorted, maliciously damaged my personal property and furniture, criminally DEFAMED me, obstructed justice, coercion, manipulation of the judiciary, abuse of office, interfering with state witnesses, stole vast amounts of cash both in the safe and from customers, he made false police reports, forged documents, changed the CR14 WITHOUT my knowledge and/or approval, obtained a new share certificate, he is in violation of the Companies Act, using a FAKE "BANDA TRUST" and Banking Act, illegally opening a bank account and much more This is about an investment which I made in good faith in Zimbabwe, Mr President. I had been working from the time I was 16 years old. I built up these companies created employment only to lose the entire lot to Hon T.P MLISWA's personal greed! No "Sacred Cows" Mr President.  It is my HOPE and PRAYER my family and I receive justice through compensation from HON T.P MLISWA and perhaps help in the re-building process. #EXPOSEMLISWA #NOTOCORRUPTION #NOTOINJUSTICE #NOSACREDCOWS #YESTOHUMANRIGHTS #YESTOFDI #YESTOCONSTITUTION #YESTOACCOUNTABILITY #YESTOPEACE #YESTORESTORATION #YESTOREBUILDING #YESTORULEOFLAW #BRIGHTFUTUREAHEAD #LEGACYFORCHILDREN #TembasVictim #MLISWATOPAY #RestoreDontIgnore #JUSTICEFORWESTWOOD  #TembasVictim #RestoreDontIgnore  TOGETHER we accomplish more.  We thank you Mr President   Yours Faithfully Paul and Brenda-Lee Westwood
