CALLS have been made to end the "witch hunt" of veterans after two OAPs were finally cleared of killing an IRA gunman 49 years ago. Soldiers A and C were accused of shooting Joe McCann , 24, after he resisted arrest in Belfast , Northern Ireland in 1972. The "farcical" five-year prosecution collapsed on Tuesday after the judge said the only evidence against the vets had been obtained unfairly. General Lord Dannatt, a former head of the armed forces, welcomed the acquittal and said the trial had been an “outrage”. “I am delighted that the case has collapsed,” he told The Sun. “It is morally disgraceful soldiers that soldiers who voluntarily give interviews to any inquiry team on the basis that they are providing information to establish facts find it turned into the case for a prosecution. It is outrageous. “It calls into question why any veteran would now voluntarily give evidence to an enquiry team. Why would you have confidence that it is not going to be … [Read more...] about Calls to ‘end the witch hunt’ of veterans as trial of OAPs for killing IRA gunman 50 years ago collapses in ‘farce’

TAOUYAN: Before heading into Taiwan’s mountains with his homemade rifle, indigenous hunter Tama Talum often chants prayers and makes offerings of rice wine and betel nut to the spirits. Talum, 62, was one of the hundreds from his Bunun tribe taking part last week in Mala Hodaigian, an annual festival that honors hunters and wild game. But a shadow hung over this year’s festivities because of a landmark court ruling set for Friday. At stake is both Talum’s freedom — and whether the current hunting limitations placed on Taiwan’s indigenous communities are discriminatory and unconstitutional. “For Indigenous People, hunting is about survival and it’s our culture,” he told Agence France-Presse from his bucolic home in Taiwan’s southern Taitung county, where the retired tow truck driver now grows vegetables and looks after his 99-year-old mother. Talum’s legal turmoil started eight years ago when he went to hunt food for his mother, who he said was used to eating wild game. … [Read more...] about Protect our hunting tradition, Taiwanese tell courts
