Two employees of the United Nations mission in Israel have been suspended without pay after a viral video featured a sex act in their official vehicle, as it drove down a major street in Tel Aviv.

Recall that in the 18-second video, a woman in a red dress was seen straddling a man in the back seat of clearly marked white UN vehicle. Another man appears to be asleep in the passenger seat.

UN suspends 2 officials in viral car-sex video


In a statement released on Thursday July 2, the UN said the men in the video have been identified as staff members of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), UN military observers based in Israel.

Stéphane Dujarric, the spokesman for the UN's secretary general said the two staff members have been suspended without pay until the investigation into the incident has concluded.

Dujarric told BBC;

"Their suspension was appropriate given the seriousness of the allegations of failing to observe the standards of conduct expected of international civil servants.
"UNTSO has re-engaged in a robust awareness-raising campaign to remind its personnel of their obligations to the UN Code of Conduct."

The UN maintains strict regulations barring sexual misconduct by staffers and has come under fire for violations in recent years. A report by the UN confirmed 175 allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse by staffers in 2019. Sixteen claims were substantiated, fifteen were found to be unsubstantiated, and the rest are still investigated.

The 41-year-old launched the sickening attack on PC Annie Napier as she detained him after he assaulted his neighbours.
Update: Nigerian man who spat blood into policewoman


The incident occurred at a block of flats in Coventry on April 18.

During the incident, Oritsejafor, who suffered a bloody nose, was seen getting handcuffed in bodycam footage before he spat at PC Annie Napier. 

He was on bail at the time for a previous assault on a police officer, a court heard.

Oritsejafor admitted common assault and two charges of common assault on emergency workers at Warwick Crown Court in May.

On Thursday, July 2, he was jailed for eight months and ordered to pay a £149 victim surcharge.

Prosecutor Mark Phillips said: 'A male officer who believed he was being aggressive took him to the floor, and was assisted by a female colleague, PC Napier, to restrain him.

'As they're getting him up, he spits into the officer's face

'That is spit and blood, because he had had a bleeding nose earlier, and it catches her straight in the eye.'

Playing a CCTV recording of the incident, Mr Phillips added: 'She is clearly upset, and she's very shaken indeed.'

PC Napier, who tested negative for Covid-19, said: 'As frontline officers, we know that we put ourselves in potential danger, but we now face the added risk of Covid-19 infection which then also puts our families at risk.

Update: Nigerian man who spat blood into policewoman

'It's a shock when someone spits in your face and very unpleasant, so I'm pleased the force and the courts take these assaults so seriously.'

Superintendent Jenny Skryme, of West Midlands Police, said: 'It is vulgar and unacceptable to spit at anybody, but even more so a key worker who is putting themselves at risk to keep people safe and catch criminals.

'Our officers are bravely and repeatedly on the frontline despite the understandable safety concerns across the country.

'This type of assault on our staff is deplorable and shouldn't, and won't be, tolerated.'

Nigeria has a ?Madagascar herb? plantation - Minister of Health, Ehanire Osagie

Speaking during a Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 briefing, Ehanire said an analysis of Madagascar’s ‘COVID Organics’ shows that the mixture contains largely anti-malarial constituents.

The Minister added that relevant agencies will further evaluate the herb to determine its effectiveness in treating COVID-19.

Ehanire said;

“Preliminary results of the analysis of the so-called Madagascar herbs by the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD) shows that it is the same as the plant Artemisia anua, which is grown in the NIPRD farm.
“Further research on its efficacy will be conducted when the grants for research are approved.
“The so-called Madagascar herb is one component of the malaria treatment medicine.
“Some years ago, the government imported this plant and has a plantation of it in trying to develop its production of the artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT).
“The plantation is still there, but the process has not gone that much further.
“We are looking into seeing what has held it up, but the plant is here; it was intended for producing anti-malarial, and the type we have here has a very high yield of artemisinin, which is the active ingredient.
“The species we have here have been tested and they have a very high concentration of artemisinin.
“To see whether it works against the coronavirus disease is what further research will have to bring.”

Doctors at the Federal Medical Centre (FMC) in Lokoja, Kogi state on Wednesday July 1, embarked on an indefinite strike.

Kogi FMC doctors embark on strike over ?threat to lives?

The strike announcement was made after some unknown armed men stormed the hospital on Wednesday morning, vandalising properties and carting away valuables.

In a communique signed by Nnanna Agwu, chairman, Association of Resident Doctors (NARD); Samuel Obajemu, chairman, Joint Health Workers Union (JOHESU); Abdulmalik Idris, chairman, National Association of Nurses and Midwives (NANNM) and John Omoche, chairman, Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN), the health workers alleged that their lives were being threatened because of the state’s “poor” management of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The health workers who said they are “totally withdrawing services across board”, listed some conditions that must be met before returning back to work and they include; adequate security of lives and properties, validation of COVID-19 status of some staff of the hospital that have been in isolation, provision of COVID-19 testing facilities (PCR machines) and maximum of 20 patients being attended to daily.

   Australia to invest $186 billion to boost defence capabilities amid China
The Australian government has announced it will spend $186 billion on its military in the next decade, and it will buy long-range missiles to strengthen its defense capabilities amid rising tensions in the Indo-Pacific region as China tries to assert military influence in the region.

Australia to invest $186 billion to boost defence capabilities amid China

Speaking at the Australian Defence Force Academy in Canberra, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Australia was facing its toughest international situation since the lead-up to World War II and needed to be ready.
"We need to ... prepare for a post-Covid world that is poorer, that is more dangerous and that is more disorderly," Morrison said.

Morrison named several regions in the indo-pacific where Beijing has become embroiled in territorial disputes such as  Himalayan border with India, and in the South China Sea and the East China Sea.

Morrison said the "risk of miscalculation and even conflict" was growing and called the Indo-Pacific region the "focus of the dominant global contest of our age."

Rory Medcalf, head of the National Security College (NSC) at the Australian National University, said :
"This is all about China's assertive use of its power and the way in which China has essentially abused the window of Covid-19 to intensify its assertiveness," he said.

The 2020 Defence Strategic Update, released Wednesday, outlined a roughly 40% increase in spending over the next 10 years, compared to what was budgeted the last ten years.

The new budget will increase Australia's defense ability through better-equipped naval and air forces, and by building up its munitions and fuel storage capabilities as $800 million has been budgeted to buy new anti-ship missiles from the US government.

A BBC feature shows family members of the late Alexander Khareem pleading for information about his killers.

If you know who killed my brother come forward, I beg you - BBNaija

Alexander, 20, the younger brother of BBNaija's Khafi Khareem, was shot dead on June 8, 2020,  just after midnight. He suffered gunshot wounds to his chest and abdomen on Askew Road in Shepherd's Bush.

It later emerged that his death on a London street was a case of mistaken identity.

Detectives said a white Range Rover Evoque linked to the murder was later found burnt out nearby in Ealing.

In a statement Kareem's family said they were "truly heartbroken" by his death.

"Alex was a loving and caring boy who was loved by so many," his family said.

"He was so enthusiastic about what he did, he loved IT and computers. His life was tragically cut short by such a senseless act of violence which no one should ever have to endure.

"He will never have the ability to grow up and live the life we all can, he had plans to go to university in September."

If you know who killed my brother come forward, I beg you - BBNaija

Khafi Kareem took to Twitter to beg for information about her brother's killers. She shared the video of the BBC feature on her brother and accompanied it with a plea.

"On the 1st of January 2020 I had no idea I would be going into the 1st day of the second half of the year without my little brother," Khafi wrote, adding, "Almost a month on and the person who has broken my family still has not been found. The hardest thing was not being there for my brother when he cried out for help. I'm praying we can help him now. If you know who did this please come forward. I beg you. #HelpAlex."

In the BBC feature, members of Khafi's family members spoke about the late Alexander and pleaded with his killers to turn themselves in.

"If you did this and you are watching this at home, Please turn yourself up to Police. No mother should go through this. This is everlasting sorrow," Khafi's mother said in tears.

The former member of the Hip hop group, Def O Clan, reveals how he became infected with COVID-19 and how he pulled through the entire episode.

Azadus
Azadus
Nigerian singer, Olalekan Fadeyi, popularly known as Azadus, who is well known for hit songs, such as ‘Madam’, ‘Sodiyen’ and ‘U is the one’ recently recovered from COVID-19.
In this exclusive interview with PREMIUM TIMES, the former member of the Hip hop group, Def O Clan, reveals how he became infected with COVID-19 and how he pulled through the entire episode
PT: How did you find out that you had COVID-19?
Azadus: I didn’t realise what I had was COVID-19 until my doctor asked me to just go and do the test. I had been going from one hospital to the other, I had been talking to different doctors.
I thought I was dealing with malaria or malaria and typhoid but after a while, my doctor said since, unfortunately, we’ve not been able to get you up and running, why don’t you go and check if what we are dealing with is COVID-19 or not.
That was how I went to the isolation centre and I got tested. Unfortunately, when I got home, the symptoms became much more intense so I had to go back to the isolation centre to complain that I may not make it through the 72 hours I was meant to wait till my test result comes out.
Glory be to God, they admitted me and the result came to me while I was in the isolation centre receiving treatment.
PT: And your experience at the isolation centre?
Azadus: Sincerely, the Lagos State government has really tried. Every COVID-19 patient is treated like a king. I am sure that the medications that are given to patients are quite expensive and the government would feed you in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night. That doesn’t come cheap. At the end of the day, you are not billed one naira.
 
PT: Do you feel you might break down again?
Azadus: No, no, no, I have never felt like I might still break down. In fact, I feel stronger by the day and I don’t just sit around. I try my best to also engage myself with exercise, mental, and physical exercise. I try my best possible to stay off cold drinks.
I don’t actually feel patients who have been discharged may still come back sick. Instead, I am of the opinion that COVID-19 is a virus just like chickenpox that infects an individual once in a lifetime.
PT: Did why wife and kids also contract the virus?
Azadus: To God be the glory, they are all safe. I try my best possible in making sure that I isolate myself from them. I thank God they are doing pretty well. I actually feel very strong. I don start to dey play ball sef (pidgin).
I feel strong and I am very grateful to the Lagos government for their care and show of concern. God bless Governor Sanwo-Olu, God bless Lagos and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
PT: Is it true you have left the music industry?
Azadus: I have not been off the music scene, I’ve been recording and been playing gigs. Although I have other investments that took a lot of my time but now, I am fully back into the entertainment industry.
 
PT: What projects are you currently working on?
Azadus: One of those things that I am doing at the moment is that they are building a mobile app for me and the mobile app is basically for talented individuals who do not have the opportunity to showcase their talent to the world. The app is going to help them exhibit their talents in an environment where you have loads of entertainment lovers.
 
PT: Which of your songs has fetched you the most proceeds?
Azadus: I can’t say a song generated more money than the other because there was no time I actually put that into consideration. While recording in the studio, I am still making money from the previous recording. When the new one comes out, I am making money from the new one and the old one. Take for instance, I want to perform, I am going to be performing my popular tunes so they are all making money for me at the same time.
PT: Your fans can’t get over your monster hit ‘Madam’. What really inspired the track?
Azadus: I was living in Festac at the time, I was dating a lady and at some point, I went to see her because I used to check up on her every day, sometimes in the evening.
On that fateful day, it was the mum that I first saw. The mum now indicated that she wasn’t interested in me getting married to her daughter.
That got me very worried and unhappy. On my way home crying like a little baby, the inspiration for that song came and that was it.
PT: COVID-19 has really hit your industry hard. How can Nigerian musicians stay afloat this period?
Azadus: The truth is that I don’t know. I really don’t know, but I feel it’s an opportunity for us to really work on album sales and not depend on concerts and all of that. Album sales would have been doing well for us at this period but unfortunately, pirates won’t just let us be. I think the online sale is beginning to make some sense but we are still not halfway yet.
PT: Any last words for your fans?
 
Azadus: I just got discharged from the COVID-19 isolation centre and I am free from the virus. Half bread is better than puff-puff. That Garri in your house is far better than the good meals you won’t be able to eat at the hospital. My advice is if you must go out, see everyone as that COVID-19 itself and wash your hands for 40 seconds (NCDC recommends 20) at the least.
This mask is not just a gear. I am wearing it to re-sensitise them, to remind them that they need to always wear their mask. Wearing a mask should become a part of you.
You don’t want to cough from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. like I did. You don’t want to use 19 tablets in the morning, 19 tablets at night like I did. You don’t want to be given any meal, the best meals and you cannot lift your hand to put the food in your mouth. You don’t want to see messages from your loved ones and you cannot even type.

The victim’s parents had been distraught over her kidnap which occurred some four days ago.

Suspected cultists who kidnapped Patience Emmanuel; a 20-year-old undergraduate in Bauchi State have told her family that they didn’t need money but the victim’s virginity, The PUNCH reports.

The victim’s parents had been distraught over her kidnap which occurred four days ago.

The family said Emmanuel, a 100 level Pharmacology student at the Bauchi State University, Gadau, left the house on Wednesday afternoon and her whereabouts unknown since then.

Speaking with journalists on Saturday, the victim’s father, Mr Emmanuel Kushi, a retired civil servant, said his daughter was abducted on her way home after visiting his younger brother.

He said, “On Wednesday, June 24, around 2pm, she left my younger brother’s house in Rafin Zurfi and told him she was coming to my house at Kafin Tafawa (a distance of about four kilometers) to pick something and he gave her permission to come.

“By evening my younger brother’s wife kept calling her mobile to know if she had arrived but there was no response. They thought she was already in my house working.

“Later on, they tried again but the number was switched off. The next day (Thursday) around 1pm, my younger brother’s wife called me and asked why I delayed Patience and didn’t let her come back. She asked if there was any problem.

“I told her that I didn’t see Patience because she had not come to my house. She expressed shock about what I told her and said she would call her friend to confirm.”


He further explained that his brother’s wife told him that when she called Patience’s friend, he told her that he also tried calling her on Wednesday but her phone rang out.

The father added, “So he sent a text message to her mobile. Then, a reply came in. The response read, ‘Do you think you will ever see her again? Fool.’”

Kushi said he came back from the farm and also saw a text message in his phone sent by the abductors through his daughter’s number.

The text message, which was forwarded to our correspondent read, “Father, your daughter is with us (BLACK AXE CONFRETANITY (sic)). We don’t need your money what we need is her virginity. Don’t bother looking for her.”

He said that he got another text from the abductors on Saturday morning informing him that she was dead.

“This morning, at exactly 10.25am, they sent me another text message and said ‘she is dead’. We’ve been trying to call her but her number has been switched off. One thing I know is that my daughter is not dead. I believe she will return alive.”


He said the family had reported the matter to the Yelwa Divisional Police Headquarters.

Kushi explained that the family had resorted to prayers to seek God’s intervention while awaiting the outcome of police investigation. He described his daughter as a well-behaved and obedient daughter “who always jokes with me.”

The mother of the abducted lady, Mary, said she had been living in anxiety since Thursday when she heard of the news.

She said, “I have not been finding it easy since I got the news that she was missing. I got the news on Thursday afternoon. I have left everything to God. They should release my daughter’s corpse to us so that I can see her.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Ahmed Wakil, confirmed the incident, adding that the police were investigating the matter.

The police boss said one 28-year-old Oyerinde Oyeniyi of Mokuro Area, Ile-Ife, was arrested for having unlawful carnal knowledge of his landlord’s 11-year-old daughter.

Adie, who expressed displeasure over the rising rape cases in the state, said, “One Isiaka Adeyounbo of Ayelabowo Street, Ile-Ife dragged a 16-year-old girl of the same address into his house and had unlawful carnal knowledge of her.

“Upon information received from the complainant, suspect was arrested while victim was taken to hospital for medical examination and treatment.

“One Eronse Balat of Eleyele, Ile-Ife, was also arrested for having carnal knowledge of his 23-year-old niece. Also, 30-year-old Adeoye Makinde of Isona Street, Ilesa, lured a 13-year-old girl of the same address into his house and attempted to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her.”


Fayemiwo admitted having sex with his daughter, but said he committed the act under the influence of alcohol and pleaded for mercy.

He said, “I am a farmer and the girl is my daughter. I told her to cook for me but she refused. She used to sneak to my room and demand sex. The day we had sex, I took beer and mixed it with hot drink. I did it under the influence of alcohol. Her mother had left me. I have a wife, but the girl will always come to me at night to ask for sex.”

Six-time Formula One world champion, Lewis Hamilton has slammed Bernie Ecclestone after the ex-F1 Group chief executive said that "in many cases, black people are more racist than white people".

The British business magnate, 89, made the controversial comments during an interview with CNN, while reacting to recent Black Lives Matter protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd in the US.

He


He said: 'In lots of cases black people are more racist than what white people are.
'[It's just] things over the years that I've noticed, and there's no need for it. I'm against injustice for anyone, whatever colour they are. It's important to do something about that for a start.' (Read more here)

Lewis Hamilton, 35, who has been vocal throughout the Black Lives Matter movement has now hit out at Bernie Ecclestone in a series of Instagram posts following the controversial comments he made while reacting to Black Lives Matter protests.

He

The British superstar wrote: 'Damn, I just don't even know where to start with this one. So sad and disappointing to read these comments.'

He continued: 'Bernie is out of the sport and a different generation but this is exactly what is wrong - ignorant and uneducated comments which show us how far we as a society need to go before real equality can happen.

'It makes complete sense to me now that nothing was said or done to make our sport more diverse or to address the racial abuse I received throughout my career.

'If someone who has run the sport for decades has such a lack of understanding of the deep routed issues we as black people deal with every day, how can we expect all the people who work under him to understand. It starts at the top.

'Now the time has come for change. I will not stop pushing to create an inclusive future for our sport with equal opportunity for all.

'To create a world that provides equal opportunity for minorities. I will continue to use my voice to represent those who don't have one, and to speak for those who are underrepresented to provide an opportunity to have a chance in our sport.

He

Hamilton, who is a victim of racial abuse recently detailed all of the incidents he had faced in his career, including one that happened in Spain in 2008 where fans taunted him in blackface during a tournament.

Shocking pictures from the race 12 years ago showed fans in blackface, wearing t-shirts with 'Hamilton's family' written on them.

No part of the country can claim to be safe from terrorists, armed robbers and human traffickers - Obasanjo says; Calls for restructuring

Former president of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has lamented on the the security state of the nation, saying insecurity now affects every part of Nigeria irrespective of geographical location, tribe, language and religion.

                                                                No part of the country can claim to be safe from terrorists, armed robbers and human traffickers - Obasanjo says; Calls for restructuring

Obasanjo speaking at this year’s edition of the Sobo Sowemimo Annual Lecture organised by Abeokuta Club titled, “COVID-19 and the Nigeria security issues: The way forward.”, noted that insecurity was now the order of the day in the Buhari-led administration.
He said; “Let me lay more emphasis on the issue of security, which in itself is serious enough to make restructuring imperative. The South-West governors cried out and devised Amotekun as a solution or part-solution.  We have yet to see how successfully that will be operated. Other zones are clamouring for a solution because in no state and in no geopolitical zone is life and property safe and secure.
“Criminality is the order of the day.  And it cuts across the entire nation.  Insecurity is one issue of commonality among Nigerians, no matter their tribe, language, religion, geographical location, gender, age or social position.’’
“I leave out economy which is in the doldrums and fighting corruption where you see more heat than light and which is festering like a bad sore. That, to me, is what reform of federating units and restructuring is all about and not about break-up or disintegration. Insecurity brought about by widespread criminality of Boko Haram, insurgents, herdsmen/farmers conflict, terrorists, bandits, armed robbers, militants, kidnappers, abductors and human traffickers is a new phenomenon that is ravaging the entire country.’’

According to Obasanjo,  no ethnic group and even the Fulanis in Nigeria are collectively satisfied with the present security situation in spite of the President Muhammadu Buhari being a Fulani man.
“I am, of course, discounting invidious and irredeemable Fulani fundamentalists and hegemonists. Federal security architecture, as organised and operated by the present government, cannot give any individual or group hope, let alone assurance of security within Nigeria,’’
Obasanjo added, “Not that I am afraid of revolution, no, not at all, but I love and cherish peace and, of course, not peace of the graveyard.  If I am concerned about security issues in Mali because of possibility of flow-over to other parts of West Africa, I should be more concerned about security in any part of Nigeria. I have not lived for the demise of Nigeria nor for its destruction or incapacitation in any form.  Rather, I have lived to make and see a great and united country.’’

“Now, no part of the country can claim to be safe from the menace and insecurity caused by terrorists, armed robbers, human traffickers, kidnappers of all sorts, cattle rustlers, insurgents, bandits and herders/farmers conflicts.
“We are all challenged to put our thinking caps on, join hands and seek solutions together, otherwise, we will be destroyed piecemeal.’’

We’ll go after looters hiding in Ghana- EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu says

Ibrahim Magu, the acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, says the commission will soon be going after Nigerian looters currently hiding in Ghana.



We?ll go after looters hiding in Ghana- EFCC boss, Ibrahim Magu says

Speaking when a delegation of the Chartered Institute of Public Resources Management and Politics (CIPRMP) paid him a visit in Abuja on Friday June 26, Magu said the commission is putting resources together to go after the looters and recover the stolen wealth stashed in that country.

“Corruption is a borderless crime. We are putting our resources together to allow us go to Ghana without restrictions and recovery our stolen property back home. I am appealing to Nigerians to trust the Commission with relevant information about corrupt practices in the country.
There are a lot of looters hiding in Ghana. We are already talking, we will bring them back. We will go bring the assets back to the country.” he said

Reacting to allegations that the Commission is not transparent in its activities, the EFCC boss said

“We follow the international best practice when it comes to areas of investigations, tracing of looted assets, recovering looted assets. We all have our records. We are aware that we have ruffled many feathers. We have touched the untouchables and we have dared lions in their dens. We are doing all these, not because we love dangers and death, we are doing them because we value the comfort and development which anti-corruption brings.
We value good lives for our fellow men and women and we value better future for all our children. The costs of fighting corruption may be grave, but the costs of not fighting it is more deadly. This is why we continue to call on every Nigerian to enlist in the anti-graft war. A good war is a war that is waged by the majority for the good of the majority.”

Donald Trump has confirmed many people are in police custody and says he is seeking help in identifying 15 other suspects for the vandalization of Federal Property in Lafayette Park.

 Donald Trump confirms many are in custody as he?seeks help in identifying 15 other suspects for vandalization of Federal Property


On Friday, the US president posted an image on Twitter showing the suspects U.S. Park Police believe vandalized an Andrew Jackson statue in Washington's Lafayette Square area on Monday.

He wrote alongside the image: 'MANY people in custody, with many others being sought for Vandalization of Federal Property in Lafayette Park. 10-year prison sentences!'

   

The Black Lives Matter protesters tried to bring down a statue of Andrew Jackson outside the White House amid protests sparked by the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died in Minneapolis police custody on May 25.

The Park Police and FBI are searching for the 15 suspects.

This comes three days after President Trump authorised the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalises statues and warned that any culprit who commits the act faces up to 10 years in prison, amid Black Lives Matter protests in the US.

'In lots of cases Black people are more racist than White people' - Billionaire Formula one boss Bernie Ecclestone says

'In lots of cases Black people are more racist than White people' - Billionaire Formula one boss Bernie Ecclestone says

Billionaire Formula one car racing boss, Bernie Ecclestone has played down racism within the sport and made the astonishing claim that "in many cases black people are more racist than white people".

Bernie Ecclestone is credited with transforming Formula One into a global, billion-dollar business with races in all corners of the world, but like many organizations, the sport he helped create has come under scrutiny following George Floyd's death.


                                              


In an interview with CNN, the 89-year-old expressed his opinion that the fight for equality in F1 has never been taken seriously because there is too much of an emphasis on "winning races and findings sponsors".

Ecclestone's controversial comments come as British superstar Lewis Hamilton, who has been vocal throughout the Black Lives Matter movement and is the sport's only black driver, continues to spearhead his fight for change.



Hamilton, who previously said he felt "so much anger, sadness and disbelief" after the death of George Floyd, set up the Hamilton Commission to increase diversity in motorsport, joined anti-racism protests and called out F1's "biggest stars" for "staying silent in the midst of injustice."

                     

Ecclestone has now applauded Hamilton for his stance, but insists the sport does not have a problem with racism.
"Lewis is a little bit special," Ecclestone, now on an advisory role with F1 as Chairman Emeritus, told CNN Sport's Amanda Davies.
"First, he's very, very, very talented as a driver and he seems to be now extremely talented when's he standing up and can make speeches.
"This last campaign he's doing for Black people is wonderful. He's doing a great job and it's people like that -- easily recognisable -- that people listen to."

However, Ecclestone, 89, doesn't think incentives like The Hamilton Commission will have a tangible impact on the sport.
"I don't think it's going to do anything bad or good for Formula One," he said.
"It'll just make people think which is more important. I think that's the same for everybody.
''People ought to think a little bit and think: 'Well, what the hell. Somebody's not the same as
White people and Black people should think the same about White people.'
"In lots of cases, Black people are more racist than what White people are."

He continued by saying that changing attitudes towards race won't come "easily," blasting the dismantling of statues of slave trade figures -- a move Hamilton backed when the statue of Edward Colston was torn down in Bristol.
"I think they need to start being taught at school," said Ecclestone.
"So they grow up not having to think about these things. I think it's completely stupid taking all these statues down. They should've left them there. Take the kids from school to look and say why they're there and what the people did and how wrong it was what they did."

Dubai Police have released a video explaining how Instagram big boy, Hushpuppi was
 arrested for fraud in a special operation tagged, “Fox Hunt 2”.
Hushpuppi
Dubia Based Socialite Hushpuppi   
Taking to social media, the police officers wrote;
In an Operation dubbed “Fox Hunt 2”, Dubai Police have arrested Hushpuppi, Olalekan Jacob Ponle aka “Woodberry”, along with ten members of an African gang, specialised in money laundry, and online fraud.

HE Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said the operation is another achievement added to the proud record of Dubai police in ensuring the emirate’s security, safety, as well as preserving people’s money and property. Similar to operation ‘Fox Hunt 1’ that took down an African gang of nine online scammers last February, ‘Fox Hunt 2’ is another painful hit to cybercriminals who try to mess with the world’s security and safety,” he said.



According to a report by The National, the police seized the sum of Dh150 million ($40.9m) in cash and more than a dozen luxury cars in the arrest of the Instagram celebrity.
It was revealed that the socialite and twelve others were arrested on the grounds of fraud and money laundering.

Police confiscated 21 computers and 47 smartphones.

Hushpuppi’s principal scam was to create websites that looked identical to well-known companies and banks.
He and his accomplices hacked corporate emails and clone websites to redirect payments to their own accounts.
The Instagram celebrity and his gang defrauded over 1.9m victims and had 119,580 “fraud files”.
