Indian minister sues woman alleging sexual harassment for defamation

Indian minister sues woman alleging sexual harassment for defamationIndian government minister MJ Akbar filed a defamation suit against one of at least 10 women accusing him of sexual harassment on Monday, calling her allegations false and malicious. The lawsuit, a copy of which was reviewed by Reuters, names journalist Priya Ramani as the sole accused and says that she "intentionally put forward malicious, fabricated and salacious" allegations to harm his reputation. Ramani was not immediately reachable for comment. The lawsuit comes amid widespread calls on social media for Akbar's resignation from his post as the minister of state for external affairs. Akbar, 67, a veteran editor who founded several publications, has been accused of a range of inappropriate behaviour by female journalists who previously worked as his subordinates.

More than 200 protesters from the youth wing of the opposition Congress party waved placards and chanted slogans outside Akbar's Delhi home on Monday. Some jumped barricades and clashed with police and dozens were detained, a Reuters witness said. Akbar is one of the highest-profile figures so far to face accusations in India's burgeoning #MeToo movement. Several powerful men from the worlds of media, entertainment and the arts have been snared in sexual harassment and assault allegations, which have led to a string of ousters. In a one-page statement on Sunday, Akbar described allegations against him as "wild and baseless" and questioned if they were politically motivated. "Why has this storm risen a few months before a general election? Is there an agenda? You be the judge," he said in the statement. Shutapa Paul, one of the women who has accused Akbar of sexual misconduct, told Reuters on Sunday that she was dismayed by Akbar's response. "Akbar's brazen shaming of all of us is evidence of his sense of entitlement and power. I feel let down by the powers that be," Paul said. "Truth and justice will prevail."

Someone bought BrettKavanaugh.com, which links to sexual assault survivor resources

Someone bought <a href=BrettKavanaugh.com, which links to sexual assault survivor resources” align=”left” title=”Someone bought BrettKavanaugh.com, which links to sexual assault survivor resources” border=”0″ >Brett Kavanaugh didn't buy a domain with his name in it. So now, if you go to BrettKavanaugh.com, .org or .net, you won't find an official site for the contentious Supreme Court Justice, sworn in on Monday after an FBI investigation into multiple accusations of sexual assault.  Instead, you'll find a website that links to resources for sexual assault survivors.  SEE ALSO: Trump declares Kavanaugh 'proven innocent', internet calls him out The page is emblazoned with a simple, but strong message that was echoed throughout Kavanaugh's confirmation saga: "We believe survivors." The domains were purchased by an organization called Fix The Court, which pushes for accountability and transparency in the Supreme Court.  t.co/hDgi8V1Vdk links to various resources for sexual assault survivors: “We believe survivors”. pic.twitter.com/LS3PTI9S7R — Gabe #DreamActNow Ortíz (@TUSK81) October 9, 2018 Executive director Gabe Roth said in a statement that he bought the URLs three years ago, thinking that it "might be useful in any forthcoming Supreme Court confirmation battles."  On Tuesday, he redirected those three domains to a landing page with resources for victims of sexual assault, including the National Sexual Violence Resource Center and End Rape on Campus (EROC), which provides support for campus assault survivors. It's fitting, as one of Kavanaugh's accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, said he sexually assaulted her when they were in high school in the 1980s, and another, Deborah Ramirez, accused him of sexual misconduct when he was a Yale student. "I believe Dr. Ford. I believe Prof. Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness," Roth wrote. "Watching last night’s White House event and listening to the President again cast doubt on veracity of Dr. Ford’s claims, while not hearing a word of contrition from the newest justice, was difficult for many Americans who have experienced sexual misconduct firsthand." It's not the only Kavanaugh-related URL that's been snapped up. Comedian Dave Weasel bought honbrettkavanaugh.com, and it now links to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, also linked by Fix The Court's site. I scooped the domain t.co/HdZOdjiGO8 and redirected it to RAINN – a leading anti-sexual violence organization. — Dave Weasel (@DaveWeasel) October 7, 2018 WATCH: These noise-cancelling headphones are the real deal – Power Up
