Who is Scott Pruitt? EPA chief whose whole career has been dogged by ethics concernsEarly in Scott Pruitt’s political career, as a state senator from Tulsa, Oklahoma, he attended a gathering at the Oklahoma City home of an influential telecommunications lobbyist who was nearing retirement and about to move away. The lobbyist said that after the 2003 gathering, Mr Pruitt – who had a modest legal practice and a state salary of $38,400 – reached out to her. “For those ego-minded politicians, it would be pretty cool to have this house close to the Capitol,” said the lobbyist, Marsha Lindsey.

Canadian lynched by villagers in Peruvian Amazon after death of elderly healer

Canadian lynched by villagers in Peruvian Amazon after death of elderly healer

Canadian lynched by villagers in Peruvian Amazon after death of elderly healer A Canadian man was lynched in the Peruvian Amazon after residents of a remote village accused him of killing an 81-year-old medicine woman a day earlier, a spokesman for the attorney general's office said on Sunday. Olivia Arevalo, a traditional healer of the Shipibo-Conibo tribe, was shot twice and died on Thursday near her home in the Amazonian region of Ucayali, said Ricardo Palma Jimenez, the head of a group of prosecutors in Ucayali. Some villagers had blamed Ms Arevalo's murder on Sebastian Paul Woodroffe, a 41-year-old Canadian citizen who lived in the region and who was believed to have been one of her clients, said Jimenez. Police found Mr Woodroffe's body buried about just over half a mile from Ms Arevalo's home on Saturday, after a cellphone video recording of the Friday lynching was shared on social media, said Jimenez. The video shows a man groaning in a puddle near a thatched-roof structure as another man puts a rope around his neck and drags him with others looking on. Sebastian Woodroffe was found buried. Villagers in remote parts of Peru often punish suspects according to local customs and without the involvement of authorities Jimenez said prosecutors were exploring several hypotheses related to Ms Arevalo's murder and that it was too early to name suspects in the case. No arrests had been made yet related to Woodroffe's death, he added. "We will not rest until both murders, of the indigenous woman as well as the Canadian man, are solved," said Jimenez in a phone interview. Jimenez said the man in the video was Mr Woodroffe and that an autopsy of his body showed he died by strangulation after receiving several blows across his body. Ms Arevalo's murder had prompted outrage in Peru following other unsolved murders of indigenous activists who had repeatedly faced death threats related to efforts to keep illegal loggers and oil palm growers off native lands. Policing is scant over much of the Peruvian Andes and Amazon and villagers in far-flung provinces often punish suspected criminals according to local customs and without the involvement of state police and prosecutors. "Canada extends its deepest condolences following the reported assassination of‎ Olivia Arévalo Lomas, an Indigenous elder and human rights defender," Global Affairs Canada, which manages Canadian foreign relations, said in a statement. "We are also aware that a Canadian ‎was killed in a related incident. Consular services are being provided to the family of the Canadian," it added.

G7 foreign ministers' summit to hold tough line on Russia: sourcesBy David Ljunggren and Lesley Wroughton TORONTO (Reuters) - Foreign ministers from the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations are expected to maintain a tough line on Russia over its involvement in conflicts in Syria and Ukraine, while leaving the door open to cooperation, two sources briefed on the matter said on Sunday. The ministers, meeting in Toronto for two days, spent part of the first day discussing tensions with Russia, which are straining an already bruised relationship with the West. The sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said a final statement from the ministers was set to maintain an uncompromising line with Moscow, which the G7 has condemned for annexing Crimea and backing militants in eastern Ukraine.

Martin Lewis to sue Facebook over fake ads which scam people out of thousands

Martin Lewis to sue Facebook over fake ads which scam people out of thousands  

Martin Lewis to sue Facebook over fake ads which scam people out of thousands  MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis is to sue Facebook over scam adverts using his image.  The commentator and financial journalist is claiming defamation over allegations that the site is publishing scam adverts using his image causing vulnerable people to hand over thousands of pounds to criminals. He said the company had hosted more than 50 of the scam ads and that it had failed to act because it was motivated by "greed". Mr Lewis said the legal action, due to be launched on Monday, was the result of months of frustration with scammers who were piggybacking on his reputation and preying on Facebook users with outlandish get-rich-quick scams.  Supporters have handed over thousands of pounds in good faith, only to find the advert has nothing to do with Mr Lewis or his company.  "Vulnerable people are the ones being scammed and the ones being hurt," he told the Daily Telegraph. "It has to take some responsibility." Financial commentator Martin Lewis Credit:  John Rogers/ITV "It is not worth Facebook's while improving its systems. The company who is the leader in facial recognition, when it's been put on notice by someone that there is a scam and that that person never does adverts, it is not beyond its wit and wisdom to notify me of these adverts, and ask if they are legitimate.  "But its processes don't work like that - it wants to make it flexible and easy for anyone to be able to advertise - and it has done, including criminal scammers. "Facebook has become this big agglomerated organisation where no-one seems to take care and responsibility." Any damages won through the lawsuit will be donated to charity, by Mr Lewis said the legal action was not designed to win the case itself, but to force the company to change its policy on advertising, for example by having inbuilt settings notifying well-known people every time their image was used in an advert, requiring their approval. It's distressing, and genuinely makes me feel physically sick when I hear someone has lost money because of this, and because they trusted me, and now they blame me.Martin Lewis He said he has repeatedly reported the adverts, only for new, almost identical ones to appear days later.  "I don't do ads, so an ad with me in it, does not have my permission. These are companies warned about by the FCA, warned about by Action Fraud - this is about as clear cut as it gets," he said.  "Why do I have to go through the time, cost and stress of doing the work? I have people spending half their week doing this. I'm not being paid by Facebook. It's making the money - if I'm going to have to do that can it pay me a fee to police it?  "It sees each advert as discrete, and the next day there's another one. They're not identical but it's the same thing. They say 'it's a new advert, you've got to report it'. "It's distressing, and genuinely makes me feel physically sick when I hear someone has lost money because of this, and because they trusted me, and now they blame me. It is very upsetting, personally - not as upsetting as it is for the people who have lost money." 'I scam the scammers': confessions of an eBay vigilante He said "fake ads" needed to be taken seriously alongside "fake news" as a threat to civil society. "Our democracy is failing to protect vulnerable from scammers by appeasing one of the world's biggest and richest companies. That is a bit of a threat as well. There isn't enough focus on fake ads." Solicitor Mark Lewis of Seddons, leading the lawsuit, said: "Facebook is not above the law - it cannot hide outside the UK and think that it is untouchable. "Exemplary damages are being sought. This means we will ask the court to ensure they are substantial enough that Facebook can't simply see paying out damages as just the 'cost of business' and carry on regardless. "It needs to be shown that the price of causing misery is very high." What happens to victims of fraud A Facebook spokesperson said: “We do not allow adverts which are misleading or false on Facebook and have explained to Martin Lewis that he should report any adverts that infringe his rights and they will be removed. "We are in direct contact with his team, offering to help and promptly investigating their requests, and only last week confirmed that several adverts and accounts that violated our Advertising Policies had been taken down.”
