UN human rights committee finds Spain unjust in imprisoning Catalan leaders

01 Sep 2022  |  tr.euronews.com
The United Nations Human Rights Committee reported that Spain violated the political rights of former Catalan leaders in connection with the 2017 independence attempt. The committee stated that the Spanish authorities should not have dismissed the officials before convicting them. Oriol Junqueras and three other former regional ministers were imprisoned for their roles in the 2017 independence referendum, which was deemed invalid by the Spanish Constitutional Court. The UN committee found the charges of rebellion and the decision to suspend them from public office without a conviction lacked reasonable and objective justification. The group of 18 experts began preparing the report following a complaint by Catalan regional leaders in 2018. Nine out of twelve individuals sentenced for the failed independence bid were imprisoned and later pardoned in 2021, but they are still banned from active duty. The decision by the UN committee was welcomed by two pro-independence Catalan parties, and former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont called the findings a 'slap in the face' to Spain, highlighting a threat to democracy in Europe.

A micrometeoroid strike on the Webb telescope caused 'significant uncorrectable' damage

22 Jul 2022  |  tr.euronews.com
NASA reported that a micrometeoroid strike caused significant uncorrectable damage to one of the panels of the James Webb Space Telescope. Despite this, the telescope, which is located 1.5 million km away from Earth in L2 orbit, continues to exceed performance expectations.

While most of the damage from micrometeoroids can be corrected with mathematical adjustments, the impact between May 22 and 24 resulted in significant uncorrectable changes to the C3 segment. The frequency of such high kinetic energy micrometeoroid strikes is still uncertain.
