Ces symptômes peuvent être aggravés chez les personnes sensibles ou immunodéprimées, les jeunes enfants, les femmes enceintes, et les personnes âgées.

En l’absence de symptômes dans les 7 jours après la consommation des produits concernés, il est inutile de s’inquiéter et de consulter un médecin.

Si le produit doit subir une cuisson avant consommation : la cuisson à cœur des produits à +65°C permet de détruire ces bactéries et de prévenir les conséquences d’une telle contamination.




Rishi Sunak to become Britain’s next prime minister Loop Cayman Islands

Black Immigrant Daily News

Former Treasury chief Rishi Sunak won the race to be leader of the Conservative Party on Monday and will become Britain’s next prime minister — the third this year.

The former Treasury chief will be Britain’s first leader of colour and faces the task of stabilising the party and country at a time of economic and political turbulence.

His only rival, Penny Mordaunt, conceded and withdrew.

As leader of the governing party, he will take over as prime minister from Liz Truss, who quit last week after 45 tumultuous days in office.

Sunak had been the strong favourite as the governing Conservative Party sought stability at a time of immense economic challenges and after months of chaos that consumed the past two leaders.

Sunak’s position strengthened after former leader Boris Johnson dropped out of the Conservative Party leadership contest. The party is choosing Britain’s third prime minister this year following Liz Truss’ resignation after a turbulent 45-day term.

Sunak lost out to Truss in the last Conservative election, but his party and the country now appear eager for a safe pair of hands to tackle soaring energy and food prices and a looming recession. The politician steered the economy through the coronavirus pandemic, winning praise for his financial support for laid-off workers and shuttered businesses.

He has promised “integrity, professionalism and accountability” if he forms a government — a nod to the growing to desire for a leader who can tackle the country’s problems.

Earlier in the day, the 42-year-old was the only candidate with confirmed support from more than 100 lawmakers, the number needed to run in the election, with his backers claiming he has been endorsed by more than half the 357 Conservative lawmakers in Parliament. Mordaunt had hoped to reach the threshold by the time nominations closed — but she backed out.

That means Sunak is now the Conservative Party leader and will be asked by King Charles III to form a government. He will become the prime minister in a handover of power from Truss later Monday or on Tuesday.

Sunak, who was Treasury chief from 2020 until this summer, quit in July in protest at Johnson’s leadership.

Johnson dramatically quit the race on Sunday night, ending a short-lived, high-profile attempt to return to the prime minister’s job he was ousted from little more than three months ago amid ethics scandals.

Johnson spent the weekend trying to gain support from fellow Conservative lawmakers after flying back from a Caribbean vacation. Late Sunday he said he had amassed the backing of 102 colleagues. But he was far behind Sunak in support, and said he had concluded that “you can’t govern effectively unless you have a united party in Parliament.”

The prospect of a return by Johnson had thrown the already divided Conservative Party into further turmoil. He led the party to a thumping election victory in 2019, but his premiership was clouded by scandals over money and ethics that eventually became too much for the party to bear.

In his Sunday statement, Johnson insisted he was “well placed to deliver a Conservative victory” in the next national election, due by 2024. And he said that he likely would have won a ballot of Conservative Party members against either of his rivals.

“But in the course of the last days I have sadly come to the conclusion that this would simply not be the right thing to do,” he said.

He hinted he might be back, however, saying: “I believe I have much to offer but I am afraid that this is simply not the right time.”

Truss quit Thursday after a turbulent 45 days in office, conceding that she could not deliver on her botched tax-cutting economic package, which she was forced to abandon after it sparked fury within her party and weeks of turmoil in financial markets.

The Conservative Party turmoil is fueling demands for a national election. Under Britain’s parliamentary system, there does not need to be one until the end of 2024, though the government has the power to call one sooner.

Currently, that looks unlikely. Opinion polls say an election would spell disaster for the Conservatives, with the left-of-centre Labour Party winning a large majority.

Two foreign nationals who are charged in relation to the illegal importation of 21 firearms and 2,216 rounds of ammunition into the island in March of this year, were each recently offered $10 million bail.

The accused, 36-year-old Jermaine Baker, a chef of Sunrise, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and 42-year-old Dervan Brown, a construction worker of Bronx, New York, both in the United States, appeared in the Gun Court.

They were charged with the illegal importation of firearms and ammunition.

The Americans are to return to the court on January 30, 2023.

Also appearing in court was a man who is reported to have been one of the masterminds of the illegal importation of the weapons.

Godfrey Martin, otherwise called ‘Rev’, a 51-year-old businessman of Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth, was previously granted bail in the sum of $5 million.

He was charged with conspiracy to illegally import firearm and conspiracy to illegally import ammunition following his arrest on August 7 this year in Ocho Rios, St Ann.

Martin’s American girlfriend, Sherilyn McLean, who was charged with similar offences on September 13, is also on $5 million bail.

Like the two American men, Martin and McLean are to return to court on January 30.

The Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigations Branch (C-TOC) of the JCF was called in on Friday, March 4, when 18 pistols, three rifles, 51 magazines and 2,216 assorted rounds of ammunition were seized at a Kingston warehouse.

The illegal weapons were discovered while Customs officers were examining barrels and noticed abnormalities.

Following intense investigations, Baker and Brown were initially arrested and charged.

Further leads led to the arrest and charge of both Martin and McLean.

Castries South MP Dr. Ernest Hilaire has expressed sorrow over the fatal shooting of teenager Miguela Joseph in Faux A Chaud, Castries, on Saturday.

Hilaire told reporters on the sidelines of a Cabinet meeting on Monday that he had spoken to the family, expressing his condolences and sympathy.

He said he knows the family very well.

“It is a sad day,” the Acting Prime Minister declared while disclosing that the deceased teenager was to have danced at an event he had on Sunday in Bananes.

Hilaire emphasised that he did not know all the details regarding the fatal Faux A Chaud shooting and would not speculate about what happened.

” I have heard a version of what happened but I do not think it would be appropriate for me to comment on it,” he told reporters.

However, the Castries South MP said he thinks the incident highlights the situation in Saint Lucia regarding firearms.

He recalled that recently parliament amended the law on unlicensed firearms and associated items.

“We are taking a tough stand on it,” Hilaire asserted.

In this regard, he noted that the police have been doing a lot to clamp down.

“You would have seen repeatedly in the news the successes of the police in apprehending persons with illegal firearms. So we are going to continue to spread the message that the law will be enforced as firmly as possible and to say to Saint Lucians really we have to find different ways of dealing with our issues and not resorting to instruments of violence,” he said.

‘It needs to stop!’ Bring those responsible for leak to justice Loop Barbados

Black Immigrant Daily News

The content originally appeared on: Barbados News

A magistrate and attorney are in agreement that the leaking of confidential documents from within organisations of repute has to stop.

This comes after the latest incident, the release of a complainant’s witness report via social media last week. The image in rotation carried the complainant’s personal information as well. Neither was the name nor address of the complainant redacted in the document.

Attorney-at-law Roger Forde KC told Loop News:

“I took issue with the fact that the station diary was copied and published on the Internet. It gave full details…What is wrong with this is that females no longer have the comfort of reporting incidents to the police in that they become public documents.”

He said he fears that some women will suffer in silence to avoid possible unwanted attention, recourse, or embarrassment.

Magistrate Deidre McKenna told the court “It needs to stop!”

After Attorney Forde said that he is not pointing fingers at any one police officer as the culprit behind the release because it could have been a maid, a cleaner, a gardener who got hold of the document, he insisted however, that he is holding police responsible and accountable for not having kept the information securely enough to prevent this occurrence. He argued this kind of behaviour erodes the women’s confidence in the whole police service.

And he said, “Those who are responsible should be brought to justice!”

Magistrate McKenna told Loop News she does not know where the leak occurred and would not make presumptions, but she said that there are serious consequences of such actions.

She said, “It could prejudice the case. It opens up the two parties to that scrutiny.” Acknowledging that rape is “a sensitive matter”, she said this could be “very embarrassing”. She said it leaves a complainant to relive the moment. And she said in this case in particular, whether the accused is a public person or not, the public now has the complainant’s account and “people will make their own calls”.

Asked if this leak could be grounds for a dismissal, Attorney Forde said, “Constitutional Action is going to come.”

Meanwhile, Magistrate McKenna explained that if and when the time comes for the trial to commence, the judge would just need to give the members selected for the jury the usual directions to disregard news articles and any other materials.

Both gave comment at Oistins Magistrate’s Court today, October 24, 2022.
