Sri Lanka lifts ban on weddings but bans kissing of wedded couple
Sri Lankan authorities on Tuesday lifted a ban on weddings which was imposed in March to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, but imposed a ban on kissing the newly-wed couple, local media reported.
Quoting a statement from the Health Ministry, media reports said that weddings could now be held in star-class hotels and halls but invitees must be restricted to a maximum of 100.
Health Service Deputy Director-General (Environmental Health and Food Safety) Lakshman Gamlath said it is illegal to invite and host events accommodating more than 100 persons even at venues that can accommodate larger crowds.
“People should keep in mind not to exceed the 40 percent seating limit at any reception hall. They cannot for any reason invite more than 100 guests either,” Lakshman said.
He added it was also compulsory for all those attending the wedding to maintain a one-meter distance between them.
Further, according to the Health Ministry guidelines, invitees are not permitted to kiss, hug, or shake hands with the wedded couple. Grooms were also forbidden to kiss the bride in public.
Sri Lanka relaxed a curfew in capital Colombo and the outskirts of Gampaha on Tuesday, after two months following the easing of the COVID-19 spread which has to date infected over 1,100 people and caused 10 deaths.
Authorities said that despite the curfew being relaxed strict health guidelines needed to be followed which include maintaining social distancing and wearing facial masks, and anyone defying these rules will be arrested.
The government said the spread of the virus was now contained within one cluster and those in quarantine centers and a public spread had not been reported for the past 21 days.
Iran issues death sentence for couple over economic corruption
Iran’s judiciary on Tuesday announced that an Iranian couple has been sentenced to death for economic corruption and money laundering, state TV reported.
Iranian judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said that Vahid Behzadi and his wife Najva Lashiedai were sentenced to death after the Special Court for Economic Crimes found them guilty of laundering around 200 million U.S. dollars.
Esmaili said the couple had also hoarded 100 kilograms of gold and over 24,700 gold coins.
The verdicts are not final and can be appealed within the next 20 days, said the judiciary spokesman.
The court has also handed down three to 15 years in prison to 32 other convicts over money laundering, he said, adding that the convicts had been involved in disrupting the foreign currencies, gold and car markets.
Among the convicts are two current parliament lawmakers, and each of them received sentences of 61 months in prison over involvement in activities that disrupted Iran’s car market, he noted.
The judiciary spokesman said 11 new verdicts related to economic corruption would be announced in the upcoming days.
Court sentences couple to 3 months imprisonment for assault
An Egor Magistrates’ Court in Benin, Edo, on Monday sentenced a couple, Monday Johnson, 44, and his wife, Patience, 36, to three months imprisonment each for assaulting two women.
The Magistrate, Mrs Florence Aghedo sentenced the defendants after she found them guilty of one count charge of assault out of the two charges filed against them.
Aghedo however, gave the convicts an option to pay a fine of N5,000 each.
She also ordered the defendants to pay N10,000 to the complainant, Mrs Hope Ughabugo and her mother, Mrs Tina Omogbai as compensation.
However, the magistrate dismissed the charge of conspiracy filed against the defendants, adding that there was no trace of conspiracy as they were husband and wife.
Earlier, the police prosecutor, Sgt. Daniel Ifidon told the court that the defendants committed the crime on Aug. 20, 2019 at Benin Technical Road, Benin, in Egor Magisterial District.
Ifidon said that on the fateful day, Patience unlawfully assaulted the complainant, Ughabugo by using her fist on her stomach.
“Ughabugo and her mother, Mrs Omogbai had entered a commercial tricycle at Benin Technical Junction, while Patience forcefully tried to drag Ughabugo out of the tricycle alleging that she got to the spot first.
“When Patience husband, Johnson, noticed the action of his wife and another woman, he parked his car, without asking question and joined his wife and assaulted Ughabugo’s mother by slapping her on the face.
“Johnson later took his wife away in his car. It was from the licensing office that he was traced to his place of work at Psychiatric Hospital in Benin, where he was arrested,” the prosecutor said.
Ifidon said the offence contravened the provision of sections 516 and 351 of the Criminal Code Cap. 48 Vol. 11, Laws of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria, 1976, now applicable in Edo.

Hungarian couple recreate scene from ‘Game of Thrones’, Ghost during lockdown
Bored by the weeks-long coronavirus lockdown? Not Hungarian film buffs Fanni and Norbert who have recreated dozens of scenes in their flat from “Ghost”, the “Game of Thrones”, “Scarface” and other films using whatever household utensils they could find.
The couple’s photos quickly went viral on social media, and now they just can’t stop, coming up every day with new ideas.
“Inspiration struck when we were in the kitchen cooking,” said Norbert Hosszu, 30, as he prepared to put on a wig to act out a scene in which Tyrion Lannister pours himself a glass of red wine at his wedding in the “Game of Thrones”.
His partner, Fanni Kovacs, 26, said she had been making dough for potato scones when she remembered a scene from the film “Ghost” with Demi Moore kneading clay and Patrick Swayze embracing her from behind.
The couple, who used to work as improvisation actors before the coronavirus crisis hit, quickly recreated the scene in their kitchen using the scone dough. Viewers now write to them asking for more, and also ask for scenes from specific movies.
“Fanni and I have always liked to dress up, and when we were at university we went to a lot of costume parties. And of course we both love movies and work with theatre,” Norbert said.
Which scenes they select depends on what they can find at home: flour instead of cocaine, tinned tomatoes instead of blood, a vacuum cleaner instead of a gun.
“I just hope that these photos will bring a smile to people’s faces,” Fanni said.

Couple, sales rep bag 13 years, 6 months jail term for stealing 76 phones worth N50m
An Igbosere High Court, Lagos on Thursday sentenced a husband and wife, Ignatus and Peace Onuorah, to 13 and half years in correctional centre for being in possession of 76 stolen phones worth N50 million.
The couple was also convicted alongside a sales representative, Ada Okoro, who sold the stolen phones to them.
Delivering judgment, Justice Lawal Akapo, ordered that the couple’s company, Becco Systems Ltd, be wound up and forfeited to the Lagos State Government.
Justice Akapo convicted on the four count charge of conspiracy, stealing, and obtaining money under false pretences, brought against the trio by the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions.
The judge after reading through the trial proceedings and evaluating parties’ arguments on the charge, held that the prosecution successfully proved the counts of conspiracy to defraud, stealing, receiving stolen property against Peace Onuorah and the Sales representative, Okoro.
The judge also held that the case of being in possession of stolen items was well established and proven against the couple, Ignatius and Peace.
Justice Akapo however acquitted and discharged the convicts of the charge of obtaining under false pretences, on the ground that the prosecution failed to establish the charge.
Justice Akapo consequently, sentenced Peace and the sales representative (Okoro) to five years each on counts one and two.
Peace was also sentenced to three years imprisonment on count three, receiving of stolen items.
She was also sentenced to six months imprisonment with her husband, for being in possession of stolen items.
Justice Akapo also pronounced that the couple’s company, Becco Systems Ltd which housed the stolen phones be wound up and forfeited to Lagos State Government.
He ordered that the sentence would run concurrently and would take effect from Thursday march 12.
The trio were arraigned before the court sometime in 2012 on an amended charge marked ID/27/2011 which the offences contravened sections 390 (a), 412, 422, 427 and 430 (1) of the Criminal Code Cap. C.17, Vol. 2, Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2003.
The trio, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge and were admitted to bail on various terms.
During their trial, the prosecuting counsel, A.M. Aderibigbe had informed the court through his witnesses, that the convicted sales representative, Okoro, stole over 76 phones worth N50 million from her boss’ shop, Mr Chika Onuwanu and fraudulently sold to the couple.
To establishe the case against the convicts, the prosecutor had called six witnesses and tendered 76 stolen phones, which were recovered from the couple’s shop located at Computer Village, MegaCity, Ikeja.
The prosecutor also tendered the convicts’ statements and that of Barrister Onuwanu, the complainant in the charge.
One of he prosecution witnesses, DSP Austine Oshobade, narrated to the court how the convict’s heinous act was unravelled and how the 76 stolen phones were recovered from the couple’s shop.
However, the convicted couple, in their defence, told the court that they bought the phones from the sales representative who did not give them receipt or invoice.

Clergy urges couples to avoid domestic violence by resisting temptation from nagging partners
Rev. Fr. Gabriel Ekpe, the Assistant Parish Priest of St Mary’s Catholic Church, Karu, Abuja, has urged couples to avoid domestic violence by resisting the temptation of beating or fighting with nagging partners.
Ekpe made the call during the Sunday Mass as he was teaching from the Bible in Matthew chapter four verses 1 to 11.
“The devil saw that Jesus had fasted for forty days and must be very hungry, he knew that was the best time to tempt him with food, so he asked him to change stone to bread, but Jesus overcame the temptation.
“In the same way the devil tempts a lot of marriages today, when the devil overtakes a partner and he begins to nag or make things difficult for the other partner, if the other partner did not make conscious efforts to resist the temptation early enough, it may ruin the marriage.
“Some men have never beaten their wives, even though they are very troublesome, that is because they have vowed never to do so.
“Let’s put an end to domestic violence by resisting the temptation,” he admonished.
He also noted that all men were tempted but that some had made a vow not to ruin their souls by yielding to the temptations.
He said that many however fell into such temptations because they chose to live by the excuses of the difficulties that led them into it.
“Like Jesus, let us resist temptation, may we not fall into temptation like Adam and Eve,” he prayed.
