A totalitarian Justice: cruel, debased and despicable rape of humanity

  The judiciary in Nigeria  is a colossal failure with a collateral damage to it’s citizens due to recklessness.  
 Nigerian legal system is a disgrace to Mankind and a tragic national plunder.  As  justice of “cash and carry”, it has informed a paradox in the criminal justice system where the innocent is criminalized the criminal walks free  as long as they are able to pay the price.
Within the borders of Nigeria resides one of the most terrifyingly dangerous display of a depraved justice system. From the Roman Empire to the present day it is arguably the most corrupt and the most shameful legal system known to mankind. Obnoxiously arrogant, its proclivities is creating a vicious atmosphere in nation linking up to the morbid corridors of pestilence  and decay. Nigerian legal system has become a metaphor for cynicism and despicable lawful plunder
 According to Judaic  teaching  “justice  is the Ultimate declaration of Gods will , our means of serving  him and approaching him.” Justice is no more or less than  fairness . It breeds  harmony . It gives comfort and  hope  to the afflicted and gives us a chance to feel that life is worth living, that no matter how desperate things might seem , it tells us to believe  that in end all will work out. It is therefore not only a means  towards a harmonious society but altogether an instrument of prosperity   Some nations are blessed with a judiciary system that delivers an efficient, effective, accountable and faire justice. Nigeria’s judiciary is remarkable for scandalous deficit of decency. On the scale, integrity remains  very limited in supply and most of all,  marked by  a pervasive systemic  corruption.
 Martin Meredith aptly described the sordid state of Nigeria’s  legal system “the justice system is chaotic prisoners were often locked up without trial for years on end… half of the inmate have never been legally  sentenced. Court proceedings are often determined by bribes rather than by justice. Many criminal were safe from persecution  because they came from prominent families or enjoyed the patronage of powerful politicians”.  “Justice goes to the highest bidder” says Emmanuel Azinge, barrister and solicitor advocate, yaba  magistrate court Lagos
“ Many  criminal and even dreadful  murderers  in Nigeria escape justice  and go free of charges with connivance  of some corruptible judges “ says  Mr  Nuhu  Ribadu , the chairman who headed the Anti graft  agency and charged prominent bankers as well as state governors and police commissioners
In case you needed a refresher, one of the biggest established cases of stealing money ,states money laundering   and diversion of public funds was the case of James Ibori , the disgraced governor of  oil rich delta state .  Nuhu  Ribadu was the ambushed and attacked anti-corruption  agent who was set against the governor . James Ibori  left Nigeria immediately afterwards . in spite of all the evidence Ibori  was acquitted of 170 count charges by a federal high court judge in Nigeria , but  now serving a 13 year jail term in UK after the crown court found him guilty of stealing and laundering states fund under a 13 count charge
According to Ribadu, Ibori was never the worst plunderer of public fund . Governor kalu of Abia was notorious for scandalous misappropriation of public funds . Mr Kalu diverted public fund during his tenure as governor,  35 billion naira  according to the states treasurer , to build a massive business empire  . He used his mother, daughter , wife and Brother  to plunder the states wealth. Kalu was never prosecuted . Notorious thieves terrifying and mindless criminals have  walked  free out of the courts in Nigeria.  ( because judgment is pay as you go and the criminal justice system is cash and carry) The irony is that innocent citizens who are unable to pay for legal representation or bribe the prosecutors and police are sent behind bars for unlimited period of time  This administration more than any records of past governance has produced too many sordid scandal  of judicial plunder  . A government commission investigating overcrowded prison found that some inmate have sat in their ram shackled cell for ten years or  more  without ever being  judged or sentenced  for any reason . many more were convicted without proven evidences.
 In 2007 four delta  state teenagers  were convicted for armed robbery later assessment  of the evidences against the defendants uncovered  massive deficiencies that wrongfully  convicted innocent young boys for a crime that was never committed.  “ I can still hear the wailing voice of one  the four  innocent  young boys commented their  lawyer, he  was barely 17  asking in his subs “ why me, what have I done in this world to merit such wrongful accusation.. but why …  I don’t even know how to handle a gun ”   “ its complete nightmare” says one of the other defendants
Barely the same moment a prominent political figure Chris  Uba had not only publicly confessed to rigging election but also to masterminding the kidnapping of the  elected governor of Anambra state , Dr Christian Ngige. Rather than punish the felon  Uba was rewarded  with a new political administrative  post and never served one night of jail term . Another prominent politician was convicted of brutal rape of a young college girl he appealed against the case paid money and was set free now the lives of the parents  of are under threat
In another case which was clearly a political murder of a promising local politician, Livinus Ajufo  who had just secured a local political victory. On his way for scheduled victory party he was riddled with bullets in the back seat of his  car  and his assailants were never arrested nevertheless the driver  Nwafor  Emeka 25 who survived the attack unhurt  was arrested and locked up. And since that faithful of July 2007 his life is recklessly wasted away in jail  with out prosecution or trail of any kind
The experiences of Chigioke, Emeka  and all the rest is a monstrous perversity of justice and this is happening on an epidemic proportion to too many young and innocent  citizens. Nigeria’s addiction to corruption has created a massive propensity to criminality amongst the prosecutingbody(judges and police)                                                                                                                                                                      Every one of them  is on the  lookout for money making opportunity. The criminal justice system is creating a massive number of criminal and over crowding the prisons paradoxically there is a massive failure to favor justice.
 If we are to live   together in any  society  a certain measure of protection  of rights and freedom  of persons and properties is necessary; and should be  equally guaranteed to every member of the community without regard to his status, personality or standard. The acknowledgment  of this principle is what sets us apart as a civilized community.  Society cannot not exist without the full measure of justice ; and  the ranking of a people on the scale of being is determined by the role played  by  it’s justice system in the ordering of things. It is well know that any where money buys impunity chaos and disorder  will reign.

L’ Inexplicable explosion de la culture du tatouage .Quel paradoxe!


 On le décrivait autrefois  comme la marque historique de la honte, de la criminalité et de la rébellion, le tatouage est aujourd’hui porté par les puissants,  les célébrités et les élites du temps moderne     
Sous un feu d’artifice de couleurs, des objets japonais, des félins , des animaux sous marins  ou encore les fameux dragons  s’animent sur la peau des hommes et des femmes du public  passionné de l’art du tatouage. Les incontournables comme la rose , le cœur transpercé par une flèche ou la croix celtique, les  sujets de tatouage semblent  inépuisables et sont  représentés sur des formes et des styles débordant de créativité.
Mais ce qui provoque la stupéfaction aujourd’hui  c’est la tendance démographique et le changement de statut social des amateurs de tatouages. Samantha  Cameron , la femme du premier ministre  Britannique porte un tatouage d’ un bébé dauphin sur la cheville gauche. Les célébrités  du monde entier : actrices, mannequins, footballeurs sont souvent des prescripteurs du modèle  d’inspiration pour les amateurs . Avec David Beckham  en passant par Angelina Jolie , lady Gaga ou Madonna le tatouage semble avoir acquit ses lettres  de Noblesse. En couverture du magazine ils exhibent fièrement leurs tatouages.  Ils sont patrons de CAC 40 comme Arnaud Lagardère ou journaliste vedette  sur France 2 comme Julien Bugier qui porte un style tribal Maori sur l’épaule  , le tatouage semble être  parfaitement adopté par les gens de la haute société mais aussi par la masse. En France les événements comme le mondial du tatou mobilise   des milliers de passionnées du tatouage . il existe une trentaine de festival  de ce genre a travers le pays, depuis Tours en passant par Paris , Besançon, Belfort, Strasbourg, Montpellier, Nice Toulouse… jusqu’ a Chaudes Aigues  qui aura lieu cette année de 6 au 8 juillet 2013 . Les festival  internationaux du tatouage comme le 18th Milano Tattoo  ou le London  tattoo convention attirent 2013  ont attiré des centaines de milliers de visiteurs
. Mais comment se fait-il que la stigmatisation du tatouage à pu disparaître ?
Voila un grand paradoxe. Les pratiques  du tatouage,  à bien des égards , fut l’apanage, en occident  des prisonniers, des esclaves,  des marins et pour les femmes presque uniquement des prostituées. Jusqu’ au milieux des années 80  la culture de tatouage était exclusivement la pratique des exclus de la société, des Rockers, des Punks et des Skin- Head . il était considéré comme un phénomène de la rébellion contre « establishment »   D’ailleurs,  des crânes  sanglants ou fendus avec des os croisés, des dragons flamboyants et d’autres conceptions complexes sont portées fièrement en public par ces catégories de la société . Le point de vue psychologique explique ce phénomène par un désire d’exprimer son identité individuelle, de manifester  sa personnalité. Le point  de vue  artistique considère qu’il y a une évolution de perspective esthétique d’une certaine génération qui a  su intégrer   le tatouage dans un mouvance artistique et esthétique qui n’existait pas jusqu’ici.
Mais comment  justifier ces explications psychologiques de manifestation d’identité  lorsque cela concerne les élites politiques,  les gothas de la finance et  du CAC 40 et les célébrités  qui ont intérêt à ce que le système soit  préservé. La justification esthétique d’une renaissance  ou reconnaissance artistique de l’art du tatouage  tardive ne tient pas la route non plus. Il y a également d’autres explications qui consistent  à privilégier  le facteur commercial qui peut jouer un rôle promotionnel .
Nous assistons à un phénomène beaucoup plus important et beaucoup plus fondamental,  inexplicable et inexpliqué, qui a trait à l’anthropologie de la condition humaine. Le phénomène de l’art du tatouage qui  explose nous dit une chose, que l’homme est situé dans un  monde qui le dépasse , que le monde  ne lui est pas inaccessible mais qu’il lui est guère connaissable , il est manipulable par lui avec des paradoxes et de confusion, des inconsistances,  il a des cotés bénéfiques et des cotés sombre ou maléfiques   . la vie humaine est faite d’un certain nombre d’activités culturelles ou non à travers lesquelles on  engagent beaucoup de sa personne, sa richesse et son pouvoir supposé pour avoir d’autre richesse et des pouvoirs espérés pour vivre un existence collective, sociale et spirituelle sous une forme ou sous une autre.

L’insupportable réalité des Main-d’œuvre à prix cassé : effet de la directive Bolkestein.


Le  déferlement de main d’œuvre bon marché  à travers  le pays  dans  la plupart  des  chantiers  français  a fini de délester  le  BTP de son statut d’activité non- dé localisable. Et c’est certainement  son éloignement  de la réalité quotidienne   dans les chantiers aujourd’hui  qui a incité Cécile  Duflot, Ministre de  logement à  considérer le BTP comme non dé localisable.  Les artisans et les ouvriers font le même constat alarmant d’une situation préoccupante. A savoir  que   l’emploi  que l’on croyait résiliant face à la mondialisation et à la délocalisation subit actuellement une très  forte concurrence déloyale grâce à la présence de main d’œuvre étrangère en très forte proportion sur nos chantiers . .
Zbigziew  et son collègue Stanislave partagent  un petit studieux avec deux autres  Polonais  au centre-ville de dijon . Les quatre  ouvriers qui  arrivent de la ville de Lubrine, en Pologne près de la frontière de l’Ukraine  travaillent  pour la SNEP, une entreprise de construction en  BTP, filiale de Léon Grosse , basé à Dijon.  Zbigweiz ,  45 ans  occupe avec ses collègues un poste de maçon coffreur dans le chantier de carrefour à la  toison d’or à Dijon. Ils  sont parmi  des nombreux ouvriers Polonais ou Portugais qui constituent principalement la main d’œuvre exigée par la SNEP 
Apparemment, comme  La SNEP, et malgré une forte  crise de chômage en France,  beaucoup d’entreprises de la  Bourgogne  ou de la Franche Comté ont recours à cette  exigence  de main d’œuvre Bon marche.  « Si tu n’es  pas Portugais  ou Polonais ce n’est pas la peine que tu te postule comme maçon à la SFCE »  commente  Nicolas  Giménés, le directeur d’agence intérim , Adéquat De Dijon.  « le plus  effrayant pour nos artisans et les ouvriers Français c’est qu’ il n y a que  les boites  comme la SFCE qui  raflent  tous les  appels d’offre en bourgogne  et Franche comté »résume  Loutffi  un artisan  sous-traitant  au chantier de toison d’or… « La SFCE  possède à elle seule  la moitié des chantiers de  Dijon  et autant à Besançon, et  elle ne travaille qu’avec des portugais »  poursuit Luffti . Nous avon tenté d’obtenir une explication auprès d’un conducteur  de travaux  chez SFCE qui refuse de nous éclairer sur ce pratique particulière   
«  Le danger c’est que ça va tuer tous nos  artisans et légalisé la concurrence déloyale. Ca va être le chaos tu vas voir » conclu Luffti     
Depuis  2007, le nombre des entreprises étrangères prestataires  de service semblent  exploser,  suite au décret de  légalisation qui permet  aux entreprises d’autres pays de l’union de fonctionner en France. Les sous- traitants se multiplient  aussi. Ils sont  dans tous les grand chantiers des grands groupes tel que Bouygues construction, Vinci et  Eiffage  construction,  et souvent c’est  parmi ces sous- traitants  que s’opère les main- d’œuvre à prix cassé.
Une étude publiée récemment dans la revue de Bâtiment, le Moniteur, montrait qu’il y a plus de 20% de main- d’œuvre  provenant de l’étranger  mais le journal de la CGt  considère qu’il y en  a entre 30 et 40% . Ainsi conclut un responsable  de la fédération nationale de construction « Certes  l’activité en tant que telle n’est pas dé localisable mais on fait venir sur nos chantiers les travailleurs qui n’ont  pas les même droit ni les même exigences de salaire que les travailleurs nationaux,  on parle ici de la concurrence déloyale. « Certains viennent juste pour le chantier, ils travaillent à bas coût pendant une durée précis et repartent chez eux, ils ne payent ni d’impôt  ni de  loyer en France »

The irresponsible Power or man’s inhumanity to man.


“she was beaten on her face until her teeth were smashed, I have never seen such an example of bestial cruelty”
If you have once been chanced to drop down the king Khalid international airport into the city of Riyadh the capital of Saudi Arabia, you will agree with me that much like Dubai this city is about strikingly one of the most modern city in the world. The tall skyscrapers, beautiful landmarks, world class hotels, fantastic shopping malls appear to be over the top – so  Dashy and Flashy
And it makes no doubt in no ones mind that Saudi Arabia is just one of the most enterprising nations of world and a new global force in the modern world. It’s breathtaking communicational technological and transportation infrastructures are convincing evidences of an Economic and political super power in the middle east. Unfortunately this is where the good fortune ends, in fact the clock seem to have stopped on the spheres of savage custom and inhuman traditions that make you want to ask why so much authority bestowed upon the  irresponsible.
Having said that, Saudi Arabia is home to the most pervasive prehistoric tradition of Man’s inhumanity to man. Over the years we are constantly barraged with untold stories of gruesome experiences of some maid servants and domestic workers in Saudi Arabia who were systemically abused and subjected to such level of atrocities that breach humanity.   “When an ordinary man holds power over another without a moral responsibility to that other the result is a degradation of the spirit and a loss of humanity” said Fredrick Douglass an American great philosopher.
Cases of abusive relationship between Saudi Arabian Employer and maid servants are a widespread phenomenon in the kingdom. It is  a culture of sadism.  but some are so indignant and outrageous they could put you off your guard. There was this case of doctors removing massive loads of nails and needles from a tortured Sri Lankan maid: A 49 year old L P Ariyawathie from Sri Lanka had a total of 24 red hot nails and needles hammered into her body in Saudi Arabia  where she  worked as domestic  maid servant. The family which she served rammed nails and needles into her body as punishment for complaining of her tedious jobs “every time I would not work because I was tired , they would threatened to kill me and hammered   nails into my body” said Ariyawathie  to the news Agency Associated press . Ms Ariyawathie was deeply traumatized Doctor Satharasinghe  told the news agency Associated Press.  In another case an emirate woman poured boiling water over her Ethiopian maid and tied her up until she died.
Countless stories, from hapless women who ventured into this kingdom of darkness to work for no more than $100, have such graphic portrayal of extreme cruelty and sadism that will make you wonder where the limit of humanity and bestiality lies.
Why is the Arab world so overrun with barbaric  brutalities and bestial cruelty even as des profess some kind religious proclivities
This was clearly the case in relation with the death of  kikim  Komalasari, a 36 year old  woman from Indonesia whose body was found in a dumpster in the southern city of Abha in Saudi Arabia. The graphic portrayal of abuse and agony she endured will make your heart jump.  When Kikims  Body was found, they allegedly burnt her body with red hot iron ; cut her face and lips with scissors her neck was severed with extensive cuts  and all over her body  she had serious  burns, she was beaten on her face until her teeth was smashed. What has made possible this ignoble reality that one man or woman could have the right to abuse, smash thrash or kill another and never having to render account for his act ? I have no response to this.
Scores of hapless domestic workers tortured, many have died, maimed or killed  by their employers , lots  more are working under very deplorable and appalling conditions. A Lebanon human right group has reported 9 suicides of domestic workers in one month. And yet thousands of such case remain in the Dark according to one Jakarta correspondent. “Everyone knows about these cases of abuse in Saudi Arabia,”… They happen all the time, but because Indonesia cannot punish Saudi Arabia, the correspondent said, it’s the reason Saudis authority continues to ignore the plight of domestic workers in their country. But what makes the entire issue so heartbreaking is the impunity that ensures protection for the Saudis rather than the victims of employers’ abuse.  In fact employers have right to beat, torture and even kill with impunity and victim has no protection from the law. And this is the way of the new world so much power to tyrants without having to offer apologies . “ In all of us even in good men there is lawless wild beast nature which peer out when our reasons are asleep” and unless there is a ruling power to enforce that personal self-restrain  there is no limit to the folly or crime a man in the society will be ready to commit.

The tragic realities of latter-day travelers


The tragic realities  of  latter day travelers.

One of  the  most  dramatic if not destructive impact  of the Day of infamy popularly called the 9/11 is the  disruption  and transgression of  all that we once held dear and took for granted  in our past experiences  as  travelers,  moving  across borders  through the air or by the sea.
The traveler  is subjected  to such traumatic experiences  and beleaguered by series of woes that the simple thought of having to journey across border gets me so terrified and distressed. It is not just that you have to be at the airport 3 or 4 hours before your  departure , then  the longs lines of queues . it is not only the airport security control and the routine humiliations  it is also that no matter how well  you pack your bags and  whatever  you may  carry, if you made the mistake of taking a low cost operator  such as  Easy jet, or Ryan air  you are in a serious trouble.  That small second handbag which you thought could be carried on to the craft will double your travel fare as you will be forced to  check  it in. Which subsequently doubles your cost and travels  expenses. Days are gone when we travel with 2 three luggage without being inflicted with so much pain and agony. Days are gone when “people travel for travel’s sake”   and felt that sense of freedom  that belongs to  travelers.
The other day I was flying to Helsinki with  Fly-be  air-line from john Lennon Airport in Manchester.  The city railway to the airport was in disrepair. Passenger were forced to go by  coach  or taxi to the airport .  By train it was barely thirty minutes from the railway station . Most or all of the passengers  and I had taken the  next  bus to the airport, as I still had barely 2hours to my flight , I thought  everything  was fine but  when I arrived  at the fly-be check in counter  I had barely  forty minutes and five passengers  ahead of me. When it got to my turn, the Fly-be   staff   said  she couldn’t check me in that I had arrived too late. In a very exasperating  and  rude  manner,  she  exclaimed.  “Am sorry”  she said “I can’t be of any help … you should be here 2 hours before your departure time”.  I tried very calmly to  explain  why  I had been delayed   and  arrived relatively late to the time. “ I still have at least thirty minutes to  go so why are you being so intransigent” , I said to her. She unruly  maintained  I should have been at the airport 2 hours  before the departure. My efforts to  meet  some more compliant  managers was in vain. In fact that effort brought me face to face  with the trending reality of the indiscipline and pig-headedness of the airport staffs in UK  today. The bottom-line is that I had to pay another full ticket , took a hotel by the airport and finally left the next day.
But the miseries we suffer as travelers is no more or less the price hike coupled with declining services , it is no more or less the insolence and the impoliteness of the air travel staffs, it is more or less that every traveler is regarded as a potential terrorist.
So when you have been subjected to the indiscipline of the ground staff and finally  you are confronted with  the routine of the airport security control  it aggravates  your  exasperation for traveling
An overwhelming   sense  of  disgust took over me as the next day I got into the airport security control room. The lines  are  endless . My back- pack is heavy . The screeners  are  screening  every item in details and the lines are not decreasing.  At this point I thought to myself that  John Lennon Airport was a monumental  bullshit. And when it got to my turn to proceed to one of the screening lines  what I received as order  was  “You, gate number 10” Just like that. I considered him for a while for treating me like a criminal and proceeded to gate number 14 which was  likely empty. But from this moment       something  deep in my soul has been busted. And   at this  moment  am being told to take off my belts  and take off my shoes . my pants are very large. Without  my belts they can’t hold so they are slipping of my waist. And I need my both hands to unpack my bags and remove my laptop and all the rest such as keys. God! I thought to myself “it is a  hell  traveling these days”
And   in spite of all of these exasperating  experiences  and humiliation you  find that the airport Security measure in UK  are using  cameras which can screen individuals through their clothes and indicate every  intimate details of the traveler . And this really is the height
