An Italian prosecutor on Saturday demanded life sentences for two young Americans being tried on murder charges after a policeman was killed following a botched drugs sale in Rome. Finnegan Lee Elder, who was 19 at the time, has admitted to stabbing Mario Cerciello Rega in the early hours of July 26, 2019, while his friend Gabriel Christian Natale-Hjorth, then 18, was tussling with another police officer. Under Italian law, anyone who participates even indirectly in a murder can face murder charges.
Questions were raised on the circumstances around his death and his links with the investigating officers.

Dwight Levick and his family have been fighting for answers in their daughter Martina's death for nearly four years. On Friday, they were told by Alberta Justice their fight is officially over, and that charges in Martina Levick's workplace death are being stayed. "Disappointed, angry, just kind of devastated," said Levick, speaking on the phone from his farm in Porcupine Plain, Sask. "We thought this would be our chance to have some accountability for what happened to our daughter, a chance to have our final say in it. But, you know, it's basically just been swept away." Martina was 21 when she died. At the time of her death, she worked as the public works foreman for the Village of Dewberry, Alta., 200 kilometres east of Edmonton. Her duties included everything from water and sewage plant operations to fixing potholes. On June 13, 2017, RCMP responded to the workyard in Dewberry about a report of a sudden death. Levick was found underneath a riding lawnmower she had been trying to fix. Martina Levick, 21, died on June 13, 2017, in a workplace accident.((Submitted by Rebecca Levick) )Two years after the accident, Alberta OHS charged the Village of Dewberry with seven counts of violating the Occupational Health and Safety Act in relation to Levick's death. But that didn't get the family any answers. Instead it was one court delay after another. "Every time we drove out to Lloydminster for a court date, you showed up there, a five-hour drive and we were told it was being delayed for six weeks," Levick said. Eventually, the family was told the Village of Dewberry had initiated a stay of charges application. They were told Dewberry was in financial trouble and that the village was being absorbed by the County of Vermilion River. "We hoped that somebody would step up and take accountability,' Levick said. "Once the Village of Dewberry was dissolved and taken over by the County, they feel it's in the best interest of the people that it doesn't proceed, and that is strictly on Alberta Justice." Calls and emails were made to Alberta Justice for a response to why the charges were stayed. 'Extremely frustrating' In an email response, an official said, "The Alberta Crown Prosecution Service (ACPS) has directed a stay of proceedings and do not anticipate the matter to proceed." On Friday, several family members met virtually with officials from Alberta Justice, and Occupational Health and Safety where they were given the same explanation. Levick's older sister, Rebecca, was on the call too from her home in Vancouver. She says it's been a long journey for her family. "It was extremely frustrating," said Rebecca Levick, who is 18 months older than her sister. "Unfortunately it wasn't in the cards for us to get that justice and awareness ... that's the biggest part that we're missing out on with these charges being stayed." Rebecca added that her family wanted to make sure people were aware of safety risks that city workers like her sister face, because this is often overlooked in small towns. For Dwight Levick, the legal battle is officially over, but he says the disappointment will take some time. "The thing that disappoints me the most today, I promised my daughter somebody would be held accountable for what happened, and I feel like I've let her down.
The Town of Inuvik, N.W.T., recently adopted the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, also referred to as UNDRIP. Inuvik Mayor Natasha Kulikowski says adopting the document has been on a few minds at council. "The adoption of UNDRIP also came with us officially making a proclamation to do with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's calls to action," she said, adding that Fort Smith passed a similar resolution a few years back. "We saw what they had done and started looking at that time on how we could do the same thing," she said. "We had that opportunity come up, administration put a lot of work into looking at how the … declaration could be applied to what we're doing, and also how it's already incorporated into our day-to-day lives." In 2019, B.C. tabled legislation with the goal of becoming the first province in Canada to "implement" UNDRIP. A few days later, the same language was included in the list of priorities for a newly elected territorial government in the N.W.T. The bill also gives government departments the authority to share decision-making with Indigenous governments. That removes a significant roadblock to "free, prior and informed consent" as spelled out in UNDRIP. Kulikowski says she plans to reach out to other local leadership within the Gwich'in and Inuvialuit communities and that she aims to create a leadership table. "Things like that are the tangible ways that we'll be able to make change by adopting this," Kulikowski said. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addresses the United Nations General Assembly, at U.N. headquarters, Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017.(Richard Drew/Associated Press) While she doesn't expect the adoption of the declarations to be felt immediately, she says it will add "scope" to the town's decision making. "I think absolutely does make it something that people will see a difference in … that difference won't be immediate, it's something that's going to take time and will be added to the way that we do things," Kulikowski said. She says the adoption on UNDRIP helps to recognize the importance of reconciliation within the community and within the North. "Our populations are majority Indigenous or very close to that. And that means that people of Inuvik have been affected by colonization. I mean, it was created by colonization," she said. "It's absolutely important that we take our own steps to make sure that we acknowledged the importance of the [Truth and Reconcillation Commission] and of UNDRIP."
NEW YORK, March 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The law firm of Kirby McInerney LLP reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of those who acquired Ebix, Inc. (“Ebix” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: EBIX) securities from November 9, 2020 through February 19, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Investors have until April 26, 2021 to apply to the Court to be appointed as lead plaintiff in the lawsuit. On February 19, 2021, after the market closed, Ebix revealed that its independent auditor, RSM US LLP (“RSM”), resigned “as a result of being unable, despite repeated inquiries, to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence that would allow it to evaluate the business purpose of significant unusual transactions that occurred in the fourth quarter of 2020” related to the Company’s gift card business in India. RSM had also stated that there was a material weakness related to Ebix’s failure to design controls “over the gift or prepaid card revenue transaction cycle sufficient to prevent or detect a material misstatement.” In addition, Ebix and RSM disagreed over the accounting treatment of $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel in December 2020. On this news, the Company’s share price fell as much as $20.24, or approximately 40%, to close at $30.50 on February 22, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume. The lawsuit alleges that throughout the Class Period Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects. Specifically, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that there was insufficient audit evidence to determine the business purpose of certain significant unusual transactions in Ebix’s gift card business in India during the fourth quarter of 2020; (2) that there was a material weakness in the Company’s internal controls over the gift or prepaid revenue transaction cycle; and (3) that the Company’s independent auditor was reasonably likely to resign over disagreements with Ebix regarding $30 million that had been transferred into a commingled trust account of Ebix’s outside legal counsel; and (4) that, as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. If you purchased or otherwise acquired Ebix securities, have information, or would like to learn more about these claims, please contact Thomas W.
