There's a whole industry, across the world, that charges fees for doing things you can easily do for free and which give you the impression, whilst not actually saying so, that you need their services to obtain your rights. One is the domain name registration scam, that appears in several variants.

Here's today's.

A firm of solicitors which came to prominence because of its owner's predilection for fast cars, big tax demands, grand expansion plans and a secretive grant from taxpayer's funds (see story) is back in the news, this time for "falsely and systematically" overcharging claims for costs in personal injury (PI) cases.

There is now no doubt that a man killed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport's budget terminal KLIA2 was murdered and there is, equally, no doubt that he was KIM Jong-Nam, the half brother of North Korean "Supreme Leader" KIM Jong-Un. As we reported in a daily news round-up on 20170216, if NoKo authorities were behind the attack, choosing Malaysia as its venue was a poor decision. Then again, it would have been equally poor if the attack had taken part in Macau, a region of China, where the victim lived. As evidence mounts, both Malaysia and China have begun actions against North Korea, which now has almost no significant support from any significant country....

Long before his inauguration, US President-Elect Trump telegraphed a view of ethics and corruption that many consider contrarian. Is the Trump way of doing business to allow tacit approval of under-the-table deals or is it simplifying the legislative regime, putting corruption on the same footing as any other financial crime? There is justification for his abolition of the Rule requiring minerals companies to report large payments to foreign governments: it was under the wrong Act and it didn't go far enough. Perhaps inadvertently, Trump has just set the stage for the first true test of his character. Also, there is another shock that biased reporting has not made clear...

Hanjin Shipping Co. was the subject of an order placing the company into liquidation by court in Seoul this morning. Its collapse is a lesson to those that think running a deficit year after year is acceptable. Sooner or later, it found, people stop pumping good money after bad.

In the USA, a gun lobby is not the place where hunters put their guns in racks when they pop back into the house for lunch. It's the grammatically challenged collective name for those who promote the interests of manufacturers of, traders in and users of firearms. Together, they provide enough support to sway elections and ensure that guns are central to the lives of many Americans. But now, a group of lobbyists made up of prosecutors say, the gun lobbyists have gone too far.

New York state is one of a number of US states that now require taxpayers in the state to provide a driving licence or other state (not necessarily NY)-issued identification when taxpayers file returns electronically. Federal tax systems do not have a similar requirement.

In 2016, Emirates flew more than 194,000 flights and of those more than 60 were diverted because of a medical emergency. The cost of each ranges from USD50,000 to USD600,000, says the airline. So it needs to find ways to reduce diversions where there is no additional risk to the passenger.

The USA's Internal Revenue Service has, for some time, been warning corporations of a spam-scam targeting companies. But now, it says, it has evidence that it is spreading into "school districts, tribal organizations and non-profits." and other sectors. But that's not all: the criminals have found a way of hitting the same targets twice.

A Parliamentary Bill in the UK goes through several stages: first the knockabout (if MPs are awake) in the House of Commons. Then it goes to a Committee Stage and then to the House of Lords. Although those bodies cannot, in effect, cancel the Bill, they can send it back to the Commons for various purposes. With cross-party support, the Bill passed with 498 votes to 114. That was closer than many would have liked.

The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal has published its November 2016 order that MOHAMMED ZAHIR UDDIN, sole director of Your Right Solicitors Limited, be struck off. His failings are legion and, even, disturbing.
