Wentworth New law safeguards due process rights of all Michigan residents

first_img Categories: Wentworth News Conviction will soon be required before civil asset forfeiture is initiatedState Rep. Jason Wentworth, second from right, joins Gov. Gretchen Whitmer as she signs his civil asset forfeiture reform plan into law. Shown from left are Policy Advisor Aaron Van Langevelde, House Speaker Lee Chatfield, Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, Gov. Whitmer, Rep. Wentworth and Chief Legislative Advisor Joe Perry.A civil asset forfeiture reform plan spearheaded by state Rep. Jason Wentworth was signed into law today, strengthening the due process rights of all Michigan residents.Prior to these reforms, Wentworth said law enforcement agencies throughout Michigan could take and keep property from individuals without ever charging them with a crime. The new law will require a criminal conviction before private property is seized from people through the civil asset forfeiture process.“The rights of every single Michigan resident are stronger with this reform,” said Wentworth, R-Clare. “Innocent people will no longer be treated like criminals when it comes to civil asset forfeiture, and our law enforcement officers will still have the tools they need to continue doing a great job protecting the public.”The new law continues to allow officers to seize property based on probable cause, but requires a criminal conviction before law enforcement agencies can sell or use the property. This will ensure an individual’s personal property can easily be returned if they are found not guilty.In 2017, Michigan law enforcement agencies reported confiscating $13.1 million in cash and property through civil asset forfeiture. In more than 200 cases, people who were later found not guilty were forced to forfeit their property, never to have it returned. Charges were never even filed in a staggering 736 cases.Wentworth sponsored the bipartisan solution alongside Rep. David LaGrand, D-Grand Rapids, and Sen. Peter Lucido, R-Shelby Township.### 09May Wentworth: New law safeguards due process rights of all Michigan residentslast_img read more

Kabel Deutschland Vodafone majorityowned Kabel De

first_imgKabel DeutschlandVodafone majority-owned Kabel Deutschland has been asked to call an extraordinary shareholders’ meeting to look into whether its management gave accurate and timely information to investors at the time of its takeover. Hedge fund group Elliott Management, which holds a stake of about 13.5% in the company, has requested the meeting and has called for the appointment of an independent auditor to look into the matter.Elliott last year initiated legal action against Vodafone, arguing that Kabel Deutschland minority shareholders should receive a higher payout. Its case was boosted by an audit report published in December that found the cable company to be worth €104 a share, considerably more than the €84.53 per share that Vodafone offered to minority shareholders. Elliott told its own investors that Kabel Deutschland could be worth up to €250 a share and that Vodafone could be liable for up to €8 billion in compensation.Vodafone said at the time that the auditor’s report findings were “unrealistic”. Vodafone’s offer was accepted by the majority of Kabel Deutschland’s shareholders.Kabel Deutschland issued a statement that it would review the latest request.“Kabel Deutschland Holding AG, Unterfoehring, today received a request by Cornwall 2 GmbH & Co. KG by telefax to invite to an extraordinary general meeting which shall, inter alia, be provided with the special auditor’s report as well as vote on the appointment of special auditors on matters related to the takeover by Vodafone Vierte Verwaltungs AG and to detect alleged breaches of duty by members of the Company’s boards in connection with the executed special audit,” it said. “The company will review the request and invite to a general meeting in case the legal requirements are met.”last_img read more
