Polygamous Leaders Arrested Over Utah Food Stamp Fraud – 844-292-1318 Utah legal aid

on Tuesday several top leaders from Warren Jeffs’ polygamous sect were arrested on federal accusations of food stamp fraud and money laundering. The arrests mark one of the biggest crackdowns on the group in years. The charges are the government’s latest move targeting the sect based on the Utah-Arizona border. They coincide with legal battles in two states over child labor and discrimination against nonbelievers. Prosecutors say church leaders diverted funds from Utah’s nutrition assistance program for inappropriate use. Leaders allegedly forced members to put food into a communal storehouse so it could be divvied up.

Hillary Clinton has launched a scathing attack on Nigel Farage, linking him to a “rising tide of hardline, right-wing nationalism” and accusing him of being a Vladimir Putin-style extremist. Ms Clinton’s attack on the former leader of the UK Independence Party (Ukip), comes after he shared a platform with Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for President of the US, in Jacksonville, Mississippi on Thursday. Mr Farage, who was introduced as the man who orchestrated Brexit by Mr Trump, had said he would not vote for the Democratic presidential hopeful even if he was paid to do so. But responding to his comments at rally in Nevada, Ms Clinton accused the former Ukip chief of having “stoked anti-immigrant sentiments” during the European Union referendum campaign. Mr Farage was widely condemned at the time for appearing in front of a “Breaking Point” poster showing a vast queue of refugees stretching into the distance. “Just yesterday one of Britain’s most prominent right-wing leaders, a man named Nigel Farage, who stoked anti-immigrant sentiments to win the referendum to have Britain leave the European Union, campaigned with Donald Trump in Mississippi,” added Ms Clinton. “Farage has called for a bar on the children of legal immigrants from public schools and health services, has said women are and I quote ‘worth less’ than men and supports scrapping laws that prevent employers from discriminating based on race.

The report tells about development of the field of palliative care. How this direction of the medicine has been evolving in Georgia over 12 years. What are international best practices and who is taking care to support this field. The spot unfolds the drama of palliative patient Maka Makharashvili and his jailed husband, who was granted free legal aid and had an opportunity to meet each other at the final stage of Maka’s life.

Opening remark of the reporter: “A free legal service is only one small component of palliative care. The new field appeared in the Georgian health care system 12 years ago. The initiative belongs to the Open Society Georgia Foundation. Palliative care implies care for people suffering with terminal illnesses, for whom pain relief is the only alternative the medicine can offer”.
