Egypt Central Bank Chief’s Bodyguard Killed & Car Stolen.

CAIRO — Three masked gunmen on Wednesday stole the  car of Central Bank Governor Hisham Ramez in Cairo after killing his  bodyguard, the official MENA news agency reported.

Ramez’s bodyguard  and the driver were on their way to take him from home to work when  attackers chased them and opened fire on the governor’s car.

The  bodyguard was killed in a shootout with the assailants who forced the  driver to stop before seizing the car and fleeing the scene, MENA said.

Egypt  has been hit by a wave of crime and insecurity, including armed  robbery, since the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak two years ago.

On  Tuesday, dozens of masked men carrying wooden sticks and knives smashed  the glass front of a luxury hotel in Cairo before fleeing, according to  security official said. — AFP

Gujarat poll shooting: BJP MLA’s bodyguard goes berserk, replies with bullets to stones

indiamap

The bodyguard of a BJP candidate and sitting MLA opened fire after some stones were pelted at the leader by some people in Tarsang village, resulting in the injury to four of them.

Jetha Bharwad, the MLA from Sahera in Panchmahal district and seeking a re-election, was later detained, DGP Chittranjan Singh said.

According to Panchmahal SP Sachin Badshah, “When Bharwad reached Tarsang village, suddenly some stone were pelted on him. His commando retaliated and opened 8-10 rounds of fire in which four people were injured, though they all are out of danger now,” he said.

Tarsang village is around 165 km from here.

Police detained Bharwad while he was still undergoing treatment for head injuries at a private hospital in Godhra town of Panchmahal.

“At present, Jetha Bharwad is under detention and further probe is underway to ascertain who exactly fired, Bharwad or his commando,” said Singh.

Meanwhile Congress candidate Takhatsingh Solanki, who is pitted against Bharwad from Sahera, claimed that Bharwad came to the village for bogus voting and that he staged the stone pelting.

“It was pre-planned by Jetha Bharwad so that he can terrorise the voters of my village and resort to bogus voting. Otherwise he has no business to enter in my village at the time of voting,” Solanki claimed.

Bodyguard Killed in Attack on Yemini Minister

ImageGunmen strafed the car of Yemeni information minister Ali Ahmed al-Amrani with bullets on Thursday, killing his bodyguard, but the official was not in the vehicle at the time, officials said.

“Armed men fired shots at the information minister’s car, killing his bodyguard,” a security official told AFP. “The minister, who was not in the car at the time of the attack, was apparently the attackers’ target.”

 

The assailants sprayed the car with bullets as it stopped outside a pharmacy.

A ministerial source confirmed the attack and the death of the bodyguard, whose name was not given.

Amrani also escaped an assassination attempt on January 31 as he was leaving government headquarters in Sanaa.

The minister, a member of the opposition named to the post in December as part of a deal that led to the resignation of President Ali Abdullah Saleh in February, was also unhurt on that occasion.

Amrani was a member of Saleh’s General People’s Congress who joined the opposition along with several other party members in March 2011 in protest over a deadly crackdown on anti-regime protests by the President’s loyalists.

The January attack was the first on a government official since a unity government was formed on December 7 under the Gulf-brokered power transfer deal that gave an equal number of seats to the GPC and opposition.

At the time of the first assassination bid Saleh was in the United States for medical treatment after being seriously wounded in a bombing at the presidential palace in Sanaa in June 2011.

Former Jeffs bodyguard wins lawsuit by default

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — A former bodyguard and spokesman for imprisoned polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs has won a multimillion-dollar judgment stemming from his lawsuit against church leaders.

William “Willie” Jessop, in his 5th District Court suit filed in February, claims leaders of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ruined his business and harassed his family after he had a falling-out with Jeffs. He seeks more than $57 million in damages and $25 million in punitive damages.

The complaint names imprisoned sect leader Jeffs, his brother Lyle Jeffs, his brother-in-law John Wayman and two dozen other people or organizations who allegedly worked to arrange a burglary at Jessop’s Hildale-area excavation business and ranch. The suit also claims church leaders have harassed his family and kept them under 24-hour surveillance, and expelled his children from FLDS schools.

Monday’s ruling by Judge G. Rand Beacham found two of the defendants, Lyle Jeffs and Wayman, liable for some damages because they failed to respond to a court summons and therefore lost the case by default, The Spectrum of St. George reported.

Attorney Mark James, who represents Jessop and his R&W Excavation Inc. and Boulder Mountain Group Ranch companies, said the judgment allows him to pursue the collection from the two of nearly $30 million specifically addressed by the court.

He said he may try to force Lyle Jeffs and Wayman to testify about their assets. The judgment against the two awards $26 million to R&W Excavation, more than $1 million to Boulder Mountain Group Ranch and more than $2.4 to Jessop as an individual.

“There is a gap between having a judgment and having the money in hand. We have to collect,” James told The Spectrum.

Beacham’s judgment notes that a ruling on punitive damages will not be made until a hearing on the evidence can be held. No date for a new hearing has been set.

James said Warren Jeffs and other defendants named in the suit — an FLDS business entity named NewEra Manufacturing Inc. and numerous John Does who allegedly took part in acts against Jessop’s family under FLDS leaders’ direction — have not yet been served with a court summons.

“We’re trying to do this in an orderly fashion,” he said, adding he expects Warren Jeffs to be served in the near future.

Warren Jeffs is serving a life sentence in a Texas prison after being found guilty last year of child sexual assault.

The suit states Jessop had supported Warren Jeffs until he became convinced of claims that Jeffs was having affairs with other men’s wives, and had renounced his role as the faith’s prophet.

Jessop was expelled from the church and ordered to leave his home and family in 2011.

 According to the suit, that was because he had refused to file a false letter defending Jeffs against allegations he trafficked and married 12- and 13-year-old girls from an FLDS settlement in Canada.

Jessop says when he refused to say his expulsion from the church was the will of God, FLDS leaders raided his R&W Excavating and removed computers and other electronic devices.

“Records of job costing, site plans, scope of work descriptions, invoicing, receivables and payables were lost,” the suit states. “Virtually all information relating to R&W’s long-term and day-to-day operations was stolen, directly and foreseeably resulting in the shut-down and demise of R&W.”

Jessop said the business was also crippled by a mass employee exodus after FLDS leaders told workers they would be excommunicated from the church if they kept their jobs.

The church is based on the Utah-Arizona line.

Billionaire Security: Behind the scenes with Warren Buffett’s Bodyguard.

Warren Buffett’s bodyguard punched me in the head, and it hurt.

Warren Buffett and his bodyguard, Dan Clark
Warren Buffett and his bodyguard, Dan Clark

The bodyguard, Dan Clark, didn’t mean for it to hurt, he was just demonstrating a fighting move called the brachial stun. That’s a strike to the side of the neck using a chopping motion with the hands — but when Clark hit me with it in a slow speed demonstration, the sudden burst of force whipped my whole head to the right, crashing my teeth together so hard that I thought I would lose a filling.

That’s what Dan Clark is like — even his demonstrations are intense.

He’s the kind of guy who throws around phrases like the “muay Thai clench with a double knee strike,” and who, when he emails you to invite you to his training session, reminds you politely to bring a cup.

All of it — the gym, the training, and especially the punch — combine to send a clear message: Don’t mess with Buffett, or any of Clark’s other clients. And that’s kind of the point.

The gym we’re standing in is attached to the offices of his company, Clark International, in Omaha, Neb. Clark, with his square build and close cropped red hair, looks every inch the former Omaha police officer he once was.

But then he met Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor known as the Oracle of Omaha, and in 1995 became Buffett’s go-to guy for personal security. When you see Buffett walking the floor at his annual investor conference, Clark is usually positioned just to Buffett’s side — keeping the crowd from surging too close to the elderly billionaire, and making sure the camera crews don’t trample anybody.


Such close proximity to an icon of American business inspired an entrepreneurial instinct in Clark, so he founded his own security company. Today, Clark International provides security services for high profile people including former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and actor George Clooney, along with a list of others he declines to name.

 

We flew to Nebraska to spend some time with him this spring, during a two-day executive training session Clark had organized for dozens of full- and part-time security guards. Only a handful are full-time employees. The rest are contractors on call for big jobs that require more bodies on the ground.

The men — and one woman — clearly respect the man who’s training them, occasionally clobbering them, and who may just sign their next pay check. Two or three are veterans of the mixed martial arts fighting circuit. But even they call Clark “sir.”

Bodyguard Killed in Ambush

MANILA, Philippines – A board member in San Pablo, Laguna was wounded while his driver was killed in an ambush Wednesday evening, police said on Thursday.

Superintendent Romeo de Castro, chief of police, said board member Reynaldo dela Torre Paras, 55, was wounded, and his bodyguard-driver, Geovanni Legaspi Dumaraos was declared dead on arrival at the hospital after they were attacked along A. Bonifacio Street in Barangay VII-C in San Pablo City, Laguna at around 8:20 p.m.

But de Castro said one of two gunmen identified as Eugene Rocaldo Bacoto, 25, was also wounded after Paras managed to return fire at the suspects.

De Castro said that Paras, 55, came from Sta Cruz town and had stopped by a bakery on his way home in San Pablo City when they were attacked.

“(Paras) was standing in front of a bakery when he was attacked. I knew he used to buy bread from that bakeshop to take home to his wife,” De Castro said.

The two gunmen, he said, appeared to have been waiting for Paras as they had positioned themselves about five meters from the official when they opened

“We just couldn’t say yet if it was Paras or the bodyguard who shot Bacoto,” said De Castro, as the police were still waiting for results of ballistic tests.

Bacoto was arrested when police arrived at the scene, but the other gunman escaped.

Shortly after the attack,  the escaped gunman stole  a motorcycle nearby and used it to get away, abandoning the vehicle near the noundary between San Pablo City and the town of Alaminos, Laguna police director Senior Supt. Gilbert Cruz said.

The man could have also been wounded as police found blood on the motorcycle, Cruz added.

Cruz said Paras had dropped by the provincial police headquarters in Sta Cruz Wednesday afternoon to report he had been getting threats.

“He said he had been receiving threats on his life,” Cruz said, declining to give more details as an   investigation was ongoing.

Bacoto, who remained in the hospital under heavy police guard, refused to name the mastermind of the  attack, according to De Castro.

Paras, who represents the third district of Laguna on the Provincial Board, heads the committee on peace and order. He was police officer before he entered politics.

Supreme Court Judge & Bodyguard Shot in Nepal

KATHMANDU — Gunmen on a motorbike shot and killed a Nepalese Supreme Court judge on Thursday in the capital Kathmandu, sparking fears of lawlessness amid a political vacuum in the Himalayan country.

Judge Rana Bahadur Bam, who was under investigation for corruption, was being driven from a temple early in the day when the gunmen pounced, shooting him six times and injuring two others in the car, doctors and police said.

“He and a security guard were returning from Bagalamukhi temple. A motorbike blocked their way and there was gunfire at 11:08 am,” said Kathmandu police spokesman Rabi Raj Shrestha.

“He succumbed to multiple bullet wounds in his armpit. We will interrogate the (judge’s) driver to find out more,” said Shrestha.

The shooting punctured an uneasy peace in the capital, days after Nepal’s Constituent Assembly, which had been considering the case for Bam’s impeachment, disbanded having failed to agree on a new constitution.

The killing came as thousands of police patrolled the streets while feuding political factions vie for power in the troubled Himalayan nation, which has no legislature and only a caretaker government ahead of elections in November.

“The Nepal government will find the criminal. I urge all Nepalis not to be filled with terror,” caretaker Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai said after visiting the hospital where Bam was taken.

“A high-level meeting of security committee has been called,” Bhattarai told reporters outside the hospital. “We will provide extra security to all the high-level officials including judges.”

Bam, a Supreme Court justice for four years, was suspended from hearing cases after being accused of taking bribes in return for giving lenient sentences to criminals.

He was under investigation by the Judiciary Council and was due to retire in a year.

Nilama Pandey, a doctor at the Norvick Hospital where Bam was taken, said the 64-year-old had been shot six times and had been pronounced dead soon after being admitted.

“He had injuries on his chest. He died after bleeding profusely. Unfortunately, we could not save him,” Pandey told local television.

His bodyguard and a friend who was also in the car, Ram Giri, the father of popular Nepali comedian Deepak Raj Giri, were also shot but their lives are not in danger, Pandey added.

Bystanders told local television channels the gunshots rung out above the noise of traffic in the morning rush hour.

“We were working when we heard a huge noise. There were three of us and we rushed to the scene. Blood had splattered on the road. We didn’t see how the two gunmen arrived but they left on a motorbike,” one said.

A pamphlet from a previously unknown group calling itself the Nepal Vad Party was found at the scene, in the Lalitpur district, Shrestha added.

Security analyst Saroj Raj Adhikari told AFP the shooting came at a time of “confusion and uncertainty” in Nepal because of the country’s political crisis.

“The murder of the judge shows that no one is safe in the country,” he said. “If the current state continues, I think these groups are likely to commit more serious crimes,” he added.

Adhikari said criminal groups which emerged after the end of Nepal’s 1996-2006 civil war were finding it easier than ever to get hold of arms because of inadequate gun controls.

Shootings are still relatively rare in Kathmandu, however, although several public figures have recently been the target of gunmen with various motives and grievances.

In September last year, a Muslim community leader was shot dead in the centre of the capital, while five months earlier a Pakistani embassy official was shot in the hand and stomach but survived.

School board member hires bodyguard after getting harassment over school district’s budget cuts.

For Olentangy school board member Adam White, “the more defense, the better” when it comes to the board’s biweekly meetings.

A personal bodyguard and a sheriff’s deputy sat in on a May 10 school board meeting — measures White said are necessary to ensure his safety.

The bodyguard, a large man wearing a black blazer and sunglasses, sat in the front row; the armed Delaware County deputy sat in the back row as board members discussed district finances and school lunch prices.

White hired both last month after he claims he was threatened by district Superintendent Wade Lucas during a closed meeting of the school board. Later, he alleges, he was followed partway home by a man in a van.

Now, he said, he is concerned for his safety and fears physical harm.

“My life has been threatened,” he said. “I’m harassed at board meetings. It’s a hostile environment and this is protection for myself and my family.”

As of May 10, White said he had paid the sheriff’s deputy $245 to attend board meetings April 26 and May 10, a total of seven hours. Documents released by the sheriff’s office confirm the hours.

According to the sheriff’s office, it costs $35 per hour to contract a special-duty deputy.

White declined to say how much he is paying the personal bodyguard, adding he wouldn’t offer details about who the man is. The man attended the last two school board meetings and also shadowed White at a policy committee meeting May 4.

The May 10 meeting ended peacefully, though there was some verbal sparring among board members after White said he couldn’t attend evening committee meetings because of work conflicts. White works for Atrium Centers, a nursing-home company.

School board members are assigned to attend a monthly volunteer committee meeting and report back to the board as a liaison.

White said the bodyguard and sheriff will shadow him “as long as necessary.”

He said the precautions are a “deterrent” to future harassment after his claims that Lucas said, “Somebody’s going to get you,” in the midst of a heated exchange during a closed session of the school board following the April 11 regular meeting.
