  British cyclist shot dead by hunter in French Alps   Sun, 14 Oct 2018 08:31:12 -0400

British cyclist shot dead by hunter in French AlpsA British mountain biker has been shot dead in the French Alps after he was mistaken for an animal by a local hunter. Marc Sutton, 34, originally from south Wales, died on Saturday evening after being struck by a single bullet while cycling in thick woods near the ski resort of Les Gets. The 22-year-old gunman, who has a firearms licence, was with a group of around 20 other hunters when the tragedy occurred. He had to be admitted to hospital after suffering from deep shock following the incident. Mr Sutton, a chef, had lived in the Alps for a number of years and owned and ran a restaurant with his girlfriend near the village of Morzine. Marc Sutton was a keen and experienced mountain biker  Credit: Facebook Amie Henderson, 38, a friend and neighbour of the of the couple told the Telegraph: “This is a very tight-knit expat community and we are all deeply shocked. There is anger too because every year there are hunting accidents.” Ms Henderson, who runs a local magazine for holidaymakers called Morzine Source, added: “Marc had a lot of friends in the area. We’ll all miss him.” Another local wrote on Facebook:  "This is absolutely devastating. Everyone in our community will be affected by last night’s accident. So very sad for Marc and everyone with him." Les Gets - locator map A source involved with the police investigation said: "He died instantly after being hit with a single bullet. The accident happened on Saturday evening in thick woods. The shooter went into deep shock when he realised what he had done." The source added: "He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton with his partner Jo Watts Credit: Facebook But local prosecutor for the Thonon-Les-Bains region said: "Couldn't be confused with game, as he had a coloured helmet and a coloured mountain bike", suggesting the weapon might have gone off accidentally. It is understood local police are treating the matter as aggravated manslaughter for which the gunman could be prosecuted and jailed. “He was riding a mountain bike on a popular and well used track, but it was difficult to get to and would not have been busy as darkness approached. The hunter may have mistaken him for an animal.” Marc Sutton was shot dead on Saturday evening The Foreign Office said it was in contact with the local authorities and was ready to provide assistance to the man's family. It is the latest in a series of hunting accidents in which people have been killed or severely wounded. Last year a 59-year-old hiker was shot dead by a hunter in the Drôme and a 13-year-old boy died when he was accidentally shot by his grandfather. In 2017 a woman who had been sitting in her garden was killed after a stray hunter's bullet passeds through her garden hedge. In 2016, there were 18 fatal hunting accidents reported in France.

  Maine faces consumer backlash after Senator Susan Collins backs Kavanaugh   Sun, 14 Oct 2018 09:50:02 -0400

Maine faces consumer backlash after Senator Susan Collins backs KavanaughBusinesses in Maine are facing a backlash after  Susan Collins, the state’s Republican senator, decided to back the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Two of Maine's biggest industries,  lobster fishing and tourism, are facing a consumer boycott following Ms Collins' key vote in the most hotly contested appointment to the Supreme Court since that of Clarence Thomas in 1991. The state's lobster industry is already reeling because of the punitive tariffs imposed by China as a result of the trade war launched by the Trump Administration. The Senate confirmed Mr Kavanaugh by 50 votes to 48 with Lisa Murkowski, another Republican, voting against his appointment but Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, backing President Trump’s nominee. Ms Collins had been one of the waverers as Mr Kavanaugh faced a wave of sexual misconduct allegations, which he angrily denied. His confirmation infuriated women's rights campaigners and the controversy has shown little sign of abating in the aftermath of the vote. A crowdfunding campaign has already raised $3 million for any Democrat who runs against Ms Collins in 2020. Brett Kavanaugh's appointment was confirmed by the Senate Credit: Andrew Hamik/AP The boycott campaign took off when John Fugelsang, a comedian and actor, took to Twitter to voice his disgust to his 413,000 followers. “Dear Susan Collins – I really struggled with this but my tourist $ just voted against ever visiting Maine while you remain in office,”  he tweeted. Mr Fugelsang has since said he was only joking, but already people have been voting with their wallets. They include John Tesar, the owner of six restaurants in Texas, who spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on Maine seafood every year. He said he will look elsewhere in order to encourage Maine’s fishermen to vote her out of office. Mark Murrll's lobster business is facing a boycott because of Susan Collin's business Credit: Mark Murrell/Portland Press Herald “My intention was not to harm the Maine fishing industry, but to encourage people to take a stand for what they believe in, especially come election day, to remove people who supported Kavanaugh, and subscribe to his treatment of women,’ he said. “Moving forward, I will educate myself on the source of the seafood we use in my restaurants and understand who is providing it and who they support politically, to make better decisions. Mark Murrell, who runs GetMaineLobster.com, is among the businesses which bore the brunt of those incensed by Ms Collins’ vote. “We had customers who have contacted us saying they are boycotting us because of her speech and vote,” said Mr Murrell. “Basically they want businesses like ours to hustle and vote her out. But she is not up for re-election until 2020. “But we have also had people from the other side who, after they read the story, contacted me and said they were going to order more.” Mr Murrell said he had written to Senator Collins following her decision. “I was not happy with the course she took.” The Telegraph approached Senator Collins’ office, which declined to comment.



  Korean Air's Chairman Faces Trial After Embezzlement Probe   Mon, 15 Oct 2018 02:53:50 -0400

Korean Air's Chairman Faces Trial After Embezzlement ProbeIndicting Cho, prosecutors said he pocketed 19.6 billion won ($17 million) in fees meant for the carrier from maintenance and duty-free operations in the five years through 2018, a spokesman at the Seoul Southern District Prosecutors’ Office said Monday. The company will present facts at the trial, a Korean Air spokeswoman said. The move by the authorities against Cho, 69, is part of efforts by South Korean President Moon Jae-in to crack the whip on cozy ties between the country’s industrial giants and the government, which the leader has called “deep-rooted evil.” Cho’s trial follows last year’s conviction of Samsung Group’s de facto chief Jay Y. Lee in a bribery case, and sends a strong message to businesses and executives that breaking laws will no longer be tolerated.



  Democrat accuses Republican opponent of creating 'miasma of fear' to scare people out of voting for her   Sun, 14 Oct 2018 16:41:00 -0400

Democrat accuses Republican opponent of creating 'miasma of fear' to scare people out of voting for herThe Democrat running to be the governor of Georgia has accused her Republican counterpart of creating a “miasma of fear” to scare people out of voting for her. Stacey Abrams, who would be the first African American woman elected to a governorship if she defeats Brian Kemp next month, accused her opponent of creating a voter identification law – which has put tens of thousands of voter registration applications on hold – to try and scare people. “This is simply a redux of a failed system that is designed to both scare people out of voting and make it harder for those who are willing to push through, make it harder for them to vote,” Ms Abrams said on CNN.

  Saudi Arabia threatens retaliation as criticism mounts over treatment of missing journalist    Sun, 14 Oct 2018 12:18:55 -0400

Saudi Arabia threatens retaliation as criticism mounts over treatment of missing journalist Saudi Arabia yesterday hinted at economic retaliation over mounting international criticism of the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi as its stock exchange suffered its worst losses in years.  Shares plunged as much as 7 per cent as US President Donald Trump promised "severe punishment", and the foreign ministers of the UK, France and Germany issued a joint statement calling for a "credible investigation" into Mr Khashoggi's fate.  Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and his German and French counterparts said “light must be shed” on Mr Khashoggi’s disappearance, and cautioned that the Saudi government was expected “to provide a complete and detailed response”. The state-run Saudi Press Agency earlier hit back at the growing chorus of international voices threatening punishment if suspicions that Mr Khashoggi has been murdered are proved true.  “The Kingdom affirms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it, whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions, using political pressures, or repeating false accusations,” the statement read. The the oil-rich kingdom added that it "also affirms that if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action, and that the Kingdom's economy has an influential and vital role in the global economy."  Sources inside Saudi Arabia said that any punitive measures directed its way would generate larger counter-measures.   A food delivery man leaves after delivering food at Saudi Arabia's consul's residence, in Istanbul Credit: Lefteris Pitarakis Independent journalist Jamal Khashoggi has not been seen or heard from since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.  The writer, an advocate for reform and a thorn in the side of the country’s autocratic Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, left Saudi Arabia a year ago over fears for his safety. The consular visit should have been a quick appointment to pick up personal documents, but Turkish security sources allege a murder squad lay in wait, and killed and dismembered Mr Khashoggi before flying back to Riyadh. Saudi Arabia insists Mr Khashoggi left the consulate, but has failed to provide security camera footage to back up its claims. Saudi authorities have agreed to a joint investigation with Turkey, but there is little expectation that they will be forthcoming. Turkey claims to hold evidence that Mr Khashoggi was killed and multiple reports suggest the government has audio of the killing, possibly recorded on Mr Khashoggi's Apple Watch.  After more than a week of growing concern over Mr Khashoggi, the public tone shifted late last week, with high-profile investors pulling out of Prince Mohammad’s upcoming big-ticket investment conference, nicknamed ‘Davos in the Desert’. The heads of the World Bank and Uber are among a growing group of major figures in international finance who will boycott the event. Sir Richard Branson, the head of Virgin, shut down talks with the Saudi sovereign wealth fund. On Saturday, Mr Trump, who had previously taken a more neutral line on the matter, used a television interview to say his administration “would be very upset and angry” if it emerged that the Saudi government had ordered Mr Khashoggi’s murder. "As of this moment, they deny it, and they deny it vehemently. Could it be them? Yes," he said. On Sunday, the first day of the working week in Saudi Arabia, the storm of controversy began to break when the Tadawul stock exchange in Riyadh dropped by 7 per cent. By day’s end, it was down 3.5 percent. While Britain and the US are reportedly considering joining the boycott on the conference, the real ties that bind so many Western nations to Saudi Arabia are economic and military. Saudi Arabia is the world’s number-one buyer of American weapons and the recipient of hundreds of millions of pounds worth of British arms, most of which are understood to be used in the war in Yemen. France and Germany also sell arms to Riyadh.
