News Burst 28 May 2022 – Featured News
- Earlier this week, news broke that former Louvre director Jean-Luc Martinez was being questioned by French authorities as part of an ongoing investigation into an alleged antiquities trafficking ring. Now, Martinez, who oversaw the Paris museum between 2013 and 2021, was officially charged on Wednesday night in relation to the investigation on the grounds of “complicity of gang fraud and laundering,” according to a report by the Art Newspaper, which cited “an official legal source.” He had been detained on Monday and interviewed by the French Central Bureau for Combatting Trafficking of Cultural Property over the course of three days. Martinez’s “complicity” charges stem from allegations that he had not thoroughly heeded concerns raised by Marc Gabolde, an Egyptologist at the University of Montpellier. Gabolde’s concerns centered around the 1933 exportation of an Egyptian stele that was ultimately acquired by the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Martinez has previously denied wrongdoing but declined to comment after he was charged. The Louvre has declined to comment on the ongoing investigation.
- Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger turned 99 on Friday and Ukrainian government-linked activists marked the occasion by adding his name to their Mirotvorets (‘Peacemaker’) website. Labeled “an accomplice in the crimes of the Russian authorities,” Kissinger was blacklisted after he called for a negotiated peace between Kiev and Moscow and a return to the pre-February status quo. Created in 2014, the Mirotvorets website is a publicly searchable database of what it calls “pro-Russian terrorists, separatists, mercenaries, war criminals, and murderers.” These range from members of the Russian military to Western politicians like Hungary’s Viktor Orban, who has opposed sanctioning Russian oil and gas. It is commonly believed that Mirotvorets is controlled by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU). Kissinger is accused by Mirotvorets of “spreading narratives of Russian-fascist propaganda and blackmail… in exchange for the truncation of Ukrainian territory.” These charges make him “an accomplice in the crimes of the Russian authorities against Ukraine and its citizens,” his entry continues.
- The Brigada Provincial de Información, a department of the Spanish police, discovered and dismantled the trafficking of false vaccination certificates against Covid in Madrid. According to the results of Operación Jennifer, which also saw the intervention of the judiciary, 2,200 people belonging to the Spanish elite have decided not to get vaccinated, bypassing the restrictions through the purchase of fake vaccination certificates against Covid-19. Among the suspects are prominent singers, musicians, football stars, businessmen, politicians and high-level medical personnel.

- A Tokyo court began hearings on Thursday in a landmark lawsuit filed by six cancer patients against the operator of the ill-fated Fukushima nuclear power plant. The plaintiffs were children at the time of the 2011 disaster – when the plant was crippled in a devastating earthquake and subsequent tsunami – and they developed thyroid cancer later in life. The group is seeking a total of 616 million yen ($4.9 million) in damages from the Fukushima operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO). The plaintiffs believe the plant’s operator is responsible for their illnesses and the impact they’ve had on their lives. “Because of the treatments, I could not attend university, or continue my studies for my future job. I had to give up everything,” one of the plaintiffs, identified only as a woman in her 20s, told the court.
- Tesla CEO Elon Musk asked social media users on Thursday night whether they trust politicians over billionaires in a viral Twitter poll, drawing more than one million votes in a matter of hours. Most respondents voiced doubt in their elected representatives. However, many commenters expressed disdain for both political figures and billionaires, some arguing the two groups often work toward the same goals. “Trick question: the politicians are bought by and work for the rich. They’re synonymous,” wrote progressive activist Nina Turner, who served as a national co-chair for the 2020 Bernie Sanders campaign.
- Ukraine is the world’s largest exporter of sunflower-seed oil, which many manufacturers use in baby formula products as a source of important fats, the report said, citing data from the US Department of Agriculture. The blockade of Ukrainian ports has curbed exports of this oil, the report added. Businesses are trying to find alternative ways to get sunflower oil or to find new recipes with similar oils instead, industry experts noted. In April, a metric ton of sunflower oil cost over $2,200, while the February price was about $1,500, the report noted, citing the World Bank. “It does just add an additional cost, complexity and in some cases delays,” explained Lyman Stone, director of research for Demographic Intelligence, which consults for formula manufacturers.
- During a press briefing, Wu Qian was asked to comment on the US military leadership’s recent statements. On Wednesday, US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin discussed the necessity of countering “aggression and bullying from China” while the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, General Mark Milley, claimed several days ago that Beijing and Moscow “fully intend to change the current rules-based order.” In Wu Qian’s opinion, the United States is “the least qualified country to blame others.” “The US comments, as always, reflect a strong Cold War mentality, a hegemonic mindset and reveals its anxiety over the peaceful rise of China. Whichever expressions the US are using, whether it is ‘bullying’ or ‘undermining international rules and order,’ I think, every term applies to the US itself,” the Chinese military spokesman said.
- The collapse of the USSR left in its wake nations that were poor and in desperate need of even the most basic necessities, which left them open for the US to take advantage, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. “Our Western partners then, so to speak, vigorously scrambled. They offered their services in every aspect and infiltrated every area of the newly-independent states. They sent advisers. And now we are experiencing what came as a result of those times,” Lavrov outlined. In particular, the diplomat was referring to US-funded labs that many post-Soviet states host in their territory. Operating under the umbrella of the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency, they conduct biological research. Washington says the network is benign and serves to detect and identify emerging pathogens that may pose a threat to humanity. But some nations believe them to be clandestine bioweapons research facilities.
- NASA is joining in the US government’s investigation of the so-called unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) following the first public congressional hearing on the matter last week, Daily Mail said on Friday. NASA will contribute to the US government’s effort to understand the unusual occurrences by providing expertise in space-based observations, the report said, citing a NASA spokesperson. However, NASA will not establish a dedicated UAP office, the report added. The space agency’s involvement will likely include reviewing footage and data from previous missions to help investigate UAP and gathering evidence from astronauts who may have had encounters with them in space, the report said. US craft have had at least 11 “near misses” with UAP, Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray said during a congressional hearing. The US government has neither attempted to communicate with the objects nor fire upon them, Bray added.
- India’s federal government and several social activists have raised objections to the Supreme Court panel’s recommendations, which say that sex work – if voluntary – is not illegal, only running a brothel is. Therefore, sex workers should not be arrested, penalised, harassed, or victimised. “Whenever there is a raid on any brothel since voluntary sex work is not illegal and only running the brothel is unlawful, the sex workers concerned should not be arrested or penalised or harassed or victimised”, the panel said in one of its guidelines. “I’m against legalising prostitution in India as it will increase human trafficking and exploitation of women. And giving it a name of a profession is wrong as it is not something one gets into voluntarily”, Ranjana Kumari, director of the Centre for Social Research, and chairwoman of Women Power Connect, said.
- Scientists from the University of Rome have sequenced the genome of a man who died as a result of the devastating volcanic eruption in Pompeii in the year 79 AD. These remains were found inside the building now known as Casa del Fabbro, or House of the Craftsman, in the 1930s. The first victim was a man, aged between 35 and 40 years at time of his death.
- The football-field-sized superyacht arrived in Fiji in April from Mexico. In April, the US set up a task force named KleptoCapture in March to seize yachts and other luxury assets of Russian oligarchs to pressure the Kremlin to stop its special military operation underway in Ukraine. Fiji’s Court of Appeal ruled in favour of the US on Friday by dismissing a petition filed by Millemarin Investments Ltd, the registered owner of the superyacht Amadea, intending to stop the $325-million vessel from being seized by the inter-agency law enforcement task force KleptoCapture. The decision paves the way for US law enforcement officials on the ground in Fiji to take the luxury yacht to any American port.
- [Bio Lab Of Animals ] Rodent pets such as hamsters, gerbils and guinea pigs could be culled to contain the outbreak of monkeypox under “last resort” guidelines released by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). It is “theoretically possible” that people could pass on monkeypox to their domestic pets, the ECDC said. Subsequently, the animals could act as a reservoir and vector for transmission of the disease back to humans. “Currently, little is known about the suitability of European peri-domestic (mammalian) animal species to serve as a host for the monkeypox virus. However, rodents, and particularly species of the family of sciuridae (squirrels) are likely to be suitable hosts, more so than humans, and transmission from humans to [pet] animals is theoretically possible. Such a spill-over event could potentially lead to the virus establishing in European wildlife and the disease becoming an endemic zoonosis,” stated the ECDC report.
- The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Swarm satellite mission has detected a completely new type of magnetic wave.
The results of the mission were published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The newly discovered magnetic wave circulates at a depth of more than 3,000 kilometres below Earth’s surface, where the planet’s core meets its mantle. It travels westward 1,500 km a year, meaning that it circumnavigates the globe every seven years. “Geophysicists have long theorised over the existence of such waves, but they were thought to take place over much longer time scales than our research has shown…Measurements of the magnetic field from instruments based on the surface of Earth suggested that there was some kind of wave action, but we needed the global coverage offered by measurements from space to reveal what is actually going on”, said Nicolas Gillet, a geophysicist at the University of Grenoble Alpes in France and the lead author of the new paper.
