UN humanitarian chief urges continued support for conflictaffected Pakistanis

5 December 2010The United Nations top humanitarian official today visited people affected by conflict in northwestern Pakistan and appealed for continued humanitarian assistance for them, many of whom expressed their desire to return to their areas of origin. “Many of the people I met today want to return home and restart their lives,” said Valerie Amos, the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, when she visited the northern area of Kyber Pakhthunkwa (KPK) province on the final day of her four-day visit to Pakistan.“We need to make sure that we assist them through that process and support them until conditions are right for their return,” said Ms. Amos. “The situation in the north is extremely complex – some of the people affected were refugees, who became internally displaced and now have to cope with the impact of the floods,” she added.Ms. Amos visited Jalozai Camp, where nearly 97,000 men, women and children are living in tents and receiving clean drinking water, food, education, and other basic services. The majority of the camp’s residents were displaced by the conflict in the northern agencies of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA). Some of them arrived there more than two years ago.Floods that hit Pakistan following the onset on the monsoon rainfall in late July have created one of the largest humanitarian crises the UN and its humanitarian partners have ever responded to. Aid agencies have mobilised resources to reach millions of people throughout the affected areas.However, more resources are needed to help people resume farming activities and rebuild their homes and livelihoods.“The world”s attention is waning at a time when some of the biggest challenges are still to come,” said Ms. Amos, who is also the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs. “Millions of people need continued assistance in terms of health care, education and agricultural support,” she added.The UN and partners have a revised Flood Emergency Response Plan requesting nearly $1.94 billion, and so far, 49 per cent of the funding requirements, or $958 million, has been received.“The world must not close its eyes to the needs of the Pakistani people. We must continue to help the most vulnerable families. They want a future for their children”, said Ms. Amos. read more

Jack Shepherd writes note to victims family as Britain officially makes extradition

Shepherd failed to attend his trial at the Old Bailey in July and was convicted of manslaughter by gross negligence in his absence and sentenced to six years in prison. Jack Shepherd, the speedboat killer, has written a note to his victim’s family saying he wants to meet them and “explain everything that happened that tragic evening”.The fugitive reportedly scribbled a handwritten message to the grieving relatives of Charlotte Brown, who died on a date with him, while he was in a Georgian jail.It came as Britain made an official request to extradite Shepherd from the country he fled to ahead of his trial, with local prosecutors expressing confidence the move would succeed.The note, obtained by The Sun, said: “I want more than anything to talk to Charlotte’s family.“I wish that I had ignored the police and lawyers and spoken to you three years ago. To look you in the eye and explain everything that happened that tragic evening.“From TV I have learned that you suspect it was something else than an accident. I cannot imagine how it feels to have that suspicion.“I hope that from our meeting you will be able to understand better how your daughter lost her life.” Charlotte Brown died in the speedboat crash Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The fugitive spent months on the run after disappearing ahead of his trial for the manslaughter by gross negligence of Ms Brown.The 31-year-old is currently being held at a prison in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia.Irakli Chilingarashvili, the head of the International Department of the Prosecutors Office of Georgia, told the BBC he was “very confident” extradition will go ahead.It was reported that the extradition request had been received in the last few days and it will now be up to a judge to decide the fugitive’s fate.Mr Chilingarashvili said: “We will do our best to finalise this case successfully and to give the possibility to our UK colleagues to bring this person before justice in the United Kingdom.”Shepherd handed himself in to police after 10 months in hiding, when it became apparent that the net was closing in around him.He has previously vowed to fight extradition, claiming that his life would be in danger if he was forced to serve the six year jail sentence handed down in his absence in a UK jail.Ms Brown, from Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, died in December 2015 when Shepherd’s boat flipped into the wintry waters of the River Thames in London after they shared a Champagne-fuelled first date. But his reported attempts to arrange a meeting was spurned by the father of 24-year-old Ms Brown.Graham Brown told the newspaper: “We don’t intend to dignify Shepherd’s comments with a response until the extradition process has been completed.” Charlotte Brown died in the speedboat crashCredit:PA read more
