Bahrain Consul General at Mumbai booked for assault, molestation of society manager


Consul General of Bahrain Mohammed Abdulaziz Al Khaja @ BombayJNN 25 Dec 2013 Bombay : An FIR was registered against Consul General of Bahrain Mohammed Abdulaziz Al Khaja at the Malabar Hill police station in south Mumbai on December 13, for allegedly assaulting and verbally abusing the manager of his housing society, the police said.

Police sources revealed that Additional Commissioner of Police (South Region) Krishna Prakash has sought Mumbai Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh’s view before proceeding further against Al Khaja.

The case has been registered at the Malabar Hill police station under sections 354 (molestation), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

According to the police, the 49-year-old victim has been working at the society for the past 10 years, while Al Khaja has been living there since the last five years.

The incident, which occurred on December 9, has left the victim shaken. In her complaint she alleged that Al Khaja had lost his temper on December 9 after one of the elevators of the building was shut down for repairs.

“The building is 40 years old and we were installing a new elevator. I kept telling him that technicians were on the job, but he wouldn’t listen. He started to bang on the closed doors of the elevator and then ransacked my office and threw books around. He was so angry that he raised his hand and touched me.

Immediately, I called the security guards and also informed the police. The guards tried to calm him down and said that he couldn’t touch a woman like that. But he used very foul language after that,” the complainant said. While she registered a complaint the same day, the FIR was only registered four days later.

“The police said that they wanted to check if he had diplomatic immunity before charging him. But this is not how a diplomat behaves. Just because he enjoys diplomatic immunity, that doesn’t mean he can do anything he wants,” she said.

She added that Al Khaja had again attempted to create a ruckus on December 20. “The security intervened again. I continue to go to work but have requested the police to provide me security. Two constables and two security guards have now been posted outside my office,” she said. According to the police, Al Khaja had also similarly roughed up members of the society in the past and also staff at the Bahrain Consulate in Cuffe Parade.

CIA chief makes “secret” visit to Cairo, Mubarak’s sons acquitted


Ex Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's Sons Jamal and Ala AcquittedJNN 22 Dec 2013 Cairo : CIA Director John Brennan has made a short, secret visit to Cairo, Egypt’s Al-Joumhouria has claimed. “Brennan met a number of security officials and reiterated US support to Egypt in its confrontation with terrorist organisations,” said the newspaper, according to the Middle East Monitor. 

Al-Joumhouria based its news on information provided by an “informed source”. The CIA official flew out of Cairo on a military aircraft, it was reported, accompanied by a “large” security contingent.

The newspaper described the visit as a “step towards regaining strong U.S.-Egypt relations.”

It was the first visit to Cairo by the CIA’s top man since the coup on July 3.

Mubarak’s sons acquitted of corruption charges

Meanwhile, Cairo’s criminal court acquitted the sons of ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Gamal and Alaa, as well as former Prime Minister Ahmed Shafiq, on charges of corruption, media reported on Thursday.

Shafiq was accused of facilitating the sale of state-owned land to Jamal and Alaa in 1995 using a publicly funded association that he led at the time. According to the complaint filed against them, the two brothers purchased the land for a much cheaper price than the market rate.

In the same session, the court also acquitted four retired generals who had served as board members of the association.

Both Alaa and Gamal will likely remain in detention, as they are facing a separate trial on other corruption charges. It is not clear whether or not Shafiq, who ran for the presidency in 2012, plans to return to politics. After he lost the election to President Mohamed Morsi, he fled to Abu Dhabi.

The rulings mean Shafiq’s name will be removed within days from a list of people whose arrest has been ordered, assuming no other cases are filed against him, judicial sources said.

Shafiq’s return would reflect the shifting balance of power in Egypt since the army removed Morsi and set the Arab world’s largest nation on a new political course designed to lead to presidential and parliamentary elections next year
