New York, June 7, 2019 — Russian authorities should immediately drop all charges against investigative journalist Ivan Golunov, release him, and investigate allegations that he was beaten in police custody, the Committee to Protect Journalists said today.

“Russian authorities should immediately drop their charges against Ivan Golunov, release him, and investigate allegations of mistreatment of the journalist in police custody,” said CPJ Europe and Central Asia Program Coordinator Gulnoza Said.Pleaser Women's Domina-3000 Boot B000XUQX6W 10 B(M) US|Black PatentSaucony Women's Liteform Feel Running Shoe B071JNMJP1 8 B(M) US|Grey.After Golunov demanded to speak to a lawyer, the men identified themselves as police officers, according to the statement.

The officers detained Golunov at a Ministry of Interior building, where they charged him with possessing and attempting to sell illegal drugs after allegedly finding amphetamines in his backpack, according to a statement by the Moscow division of the ministry, which oversees the city’s police force.

Following his arrest, officers punched and slapped Golunov in the head and chest, pushed him to the ground, and dragged him on the floor, according to the Meduza statement. For the first 14 hours of his detention, NIKE Women's Flex RN 2018 Running Shoe B078JW8TYG 7 M US|Newsprint/Black/Dark Stucco/Light SilverGolunov was not allowed to contact a lawyer or his family, according to the Meduza statement and mediaCLARKS Women's Chorus Jingle Ankle Bootie B01N6FWA6C 11 B(M) US|Black Leather.

Ivan Kolpakov, editor-in-chief at Meduza, told CPJ the drug charges were “absurd,” and said, “I have no doubts that the charges are fabricated and are related to Golunov’s journalism.”

Golunov is detained at the Ministry of Interior Main Division for the Western Administrative Area, Kolpakov told CPJ.

My daughter and I spent this beautiful June morning  visiting the “Early Rubens” Exhibit at the Legion of Honor located on a cliff with a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and the Marin Headlands.

I took the photo below of the Marin Headlands while soaking in the view from the Legion of Honor.  Topo Athletic Terraventure Running Shoe - Women's B01LZZT78A 7 B(M) US|Light Blue/Sapphire.  I was enthralled while studying Ruben’s realistic and gritty  Head of Medusa shown above.

“Early Rubens” is impressive and well curated.  Each piece of art is exquisitely described along with historical overviews for many of the paintings. This exhibit is educational and artistically impressive.

Until now, some light trash-talking by Drake provided the only off-the-court drama in this year’s NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors. That all changed Wednesday night with an incident between Toronto guard Kyle Lowry and an aggressive fan—who turned out to be a minority owner of the Warriors.

With about 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter and the visiting Raptors up by 10, Toronto’s Kyle Lowry sailed into a row of courtside seats in pursuit of a loose ball. As he extracted himself from the ensuing mess, a man sitting two seats over gave Lowry a firm shove on the shoulder. That man was Mark Stevens, a Bay Area venture capitalist and minority owner of the Warriors since 2013.

Lowry appeared to shout something and alerted referees of the contact after steadying himself on the court. Stevens was promptly ejected from his courtside seat.

“He had no reason to touch me. No reason to reach over two seats and to say some vulgar language to me,” said Lowry in a news conference after the Raptors secured a 123-109 victory and one-game series edge over the Warriors. “Fans like that shouldn’t be allowed to be in there.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday took up an unlikely cause — the plight of convicted fraudster Paul Manafort.

The progressive lawmaker expressed alarm at reports that President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman would likely be held in isolation after his expected transfer to Rikers Island — the New York City jail complex is in her congressional district — to face additional state fraud charges.

“A prison sentence is not a license for gov torture and human rights violations. That’s what solitary confinement is,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Manafort should be released, along with all people being held in solitary.”

The freshman lawmaker J Slides Women's Flynn Sneaker B0778MJM5T 8.5 B(M) US|Sky Blueon her comments when told that Manafort may technically be placed in protective custody. She tweeted that protective custody is a separate method, but “does not necessarily exclude solitary. If he is in fact not being held in solitary, great. Release everyone else from it, too.”
