So far, 2021 has been the year of Russian intelligence, with four spectacular operations exposed in the last four months. In Berlin, Jens F., an electrician with a Stasi past, was caught selling Bundestag construction plans to secret service agents at the Russian Embassy. In Bulgaria, a Russian spy ring was uncovered around the ex-military intelligence officer Ivan Iliev. In Italy, a frigate captain named Walter Biot was found to be selling military information. And in the Czech Republic, the Interior Ministry identified officers of the Russian military intelligence agency GRU as the perpetrators of two explosions at an ammunition depot in Vrbetice in 2014 . These were the same men who allegedly poisoned Bulgarian arms dealer Emilian Gebrev in 2015, as well as former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter with the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok in 2018.

Government-funded nurseries are facing a crisis which is threatening their survival, according to a survey by leading unions and charities. A third of maintained nurseries, which are financed and controlled by local authorities, are cutting staff and services because of the impact of coronavirus , and uncertainty over the funding they will receive in the next school year, the survey found. They are losing an average of £70,000 of income, but have to spend an extra £8,000 for additional COVID-related costs, the poll by Early Education, NAHT, NEU and UNISON says.

A jury in Italy has sentenced two Americans to life in prison for the killing of a police officer. The jury of two judges and six civilians deliberated for more than 12 hours before convicting Finnegan Lee Elder, 21, and Gabriel Natale Hjorth, 20. There was a gasp in the Rome courtroom as the presiding judge read the verdict: guilty on charges of homicide, attempted extortion, assault, resisting a public official and carrying an attack-style knife without just cause. Elder stabbed Vice Brigadier Mario Cerciello Rega 11 times on 26 July, 2019, with a knife he had brought with him from California. Natale-Hjorth helped him hide the weapon in their hotel room and, under Italian law, an accomplice in a murder can also be charged with murder even if they did not actually kill the victim. The death of 35-year-old Carabinieri paramilitary police officer Mr Cerciello Rega shocked Italy and he was mourned as a national hero. His widow Rosa Maria Esilio had held a photo of him … [Read more...] about Two American friends jailed for life after killing of Italian police officer while teenagers
NHS bosses are earning up to £300,000 a year including bonuses – more than NINE TIMES the average pay of nurses. A Sunday Mirror NHS wages investigation today reveals how the top 10 hospital chief executives are raking in huge sums while the lowest paid frontline staff have had their wages cut in real terms. It comes as new official figures show the health service also now has an astonishing 2,788 “very senior managers”– which include chiefs – across all trusts earning at least £110,000 each and costing the taxpayer £395million a year. The findings have enraged union leaders representing burnt-out nurses and ambulance workers offered a pay rise of just 1% after risking their lives throughout the pandemic. The sickening statistics emerge after a year in which the Tories wasted £22billion in taxpayers’ money on poor PPE and a failed Test and Trace system, a figure projected to top £37billion in 2022. GMB union national officer Rachel Harrison stormed: “This is a slap in the … [Read more...] about NHS bosses raking in £300,000-a-year plus bonuses in ‘slap in the face’ to nurses
