Ukrainian filmmaker Oleh Sentsov, who is serving a 20-year prison term in Russia, has said he believes he will be transferred to Russia's northernmost prison camp near the village of Kharp in the Yamalo-Nenetsk Autonomous Region.
Sentsov made the claim in a letter to Russian journalist Zoya Svetova that was received on September 29 and made public on September 30. 
The letter was dated on September 17 and mailed on September 21 from a remand prison in Tyumen. 
Sentsov's whereabouts have been a mystery since early this month. Members of a public oversight commission in the Far Eastern city of Irkutsk reported on September 9 that Sentsov had been transferred from that city to the Urals city of Chelyabinsk. However, defense lawyers have had no idea of his location since then.
"Physically, no one touches me," Sentsov wrote. But you know well that this system can in perverse ways punish and torment a person without the use of brute force."
A Russian court convicted Sentsov and co-defendant Oleksandr Kolchenko in 2015 of planning to commit terrorist acts in the Ukrainian region of Crimea, which Russia illegally annexed in 2014. The two men deny the accusations. Sentsov was sentenced to 20 years, while Kolchenko received a 10-year term.
In the run-up to the annexation, Sentsov was a local leader of the Euromaidan movement that forced Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych out of power. During the Crimea crisis of February and March 2014, he helped to deliver food and other supplies to Ukrainian troops who were trapped on their bases in Crimea by Russian forces. He publicly stated that he did not recognize Russia's presence in Crimea.
Western governments and leading rights organizations have called for Sentsov and Kolchenko to be released. The Russian human rights center Memorial considers both men political prisoners.
Russia has refused two requests from Kyiv to hand over Sentsov and Kolchenko. In December 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that "conditions [for their release] must be ripe."

The Kyrgyz state security service has arrested opposition lawmaker Kanatbek Isayev on accusations of planning rioting before and after the country's upcoming presidential election.
The GKNB security service announced on September 30 that Isayev had been arrested for conspiring with criminal groups to organize mass disturbances and "a violent seizure of power" around the October 15 election.
"Certain members" of organized crime groups were also detained, according to the GKNB statement, although no other details were provided.
The service said Isayev was planning a coup in the event that opposition candidate and former Prime Minister Omurbek Babanov loses the election.
The security service alleged that Isayev had selected, paid, and prepared "young people, including members of criminal groups" to use them for illegal actions during and after the presidential election of the Kyrgyz Republic using as a pretext the falsification of the results of the voting," according to the statement.
The statement also charged that Isayev had paid "a large sum of money" to organized-crime groups to carry out the alleged plot.
The Prosecutor-General's Office announced the opening of the criminal case against Isayev earlier in the day.
In May and in July, separate criminal cases were opened against Isayev on allegations of corruption during his time as mayor of Tokmak.
In June, Isayev's Kyrgyzstan party nominated him as its candidate for the presidential election.
However, election officials rejected more than 10,000 of the 37,000 signatures of support that he submitted, putting him below the required 35,000. 
There are 12 candidates vying for the presidency, with Babanov and former Prime Minister Sooronbai Jeenbekov, of the pro-presidential Social-Democratic Party of Kyrgyzstan, seen as the main contenders.
Under the country's constitution, a president can only serve one six-year term, so incumbent President Almazbek Atambayev is ineligible.
Earlier on September 30, up to 1,000 people demonstrated in Bishkek calling for "fair and clean elections."

Denmark deploys armed troops on streets, German border to help police


Danish armed forces have been deployed to the streets of the capital to guard potential terrorist targets, as well as the German border, to aid police with their duties. It is the first use of troops in Copenhagen since WWII. 
On Friday a total of 160 soldiers, bearing automatic weapons and special insignia, were sent to assist police at the German border and to watch locations in the capital vulnerable to terror attacks, the local media reported. These include several Jewish institutions, such as the Great Synagogue in central Copenhagen and the Israeli embassy, as Jews observe the Yom Kippur holiday.
Fredag morgen blev @forsvaretdk sat ind for at hjælpe politiet med bevogtningsopgaver i @KobenhavnPoliti og grænsekontrol i @SjylPoliti
“This is the first time they are used in this type of situation, so it’s unique,” AFP cited Copenhagen police spokesman Rasmus Bernt Skovsgaard as saying.
The border with the German state of Schleswig-Holstein has likewise seen an increase in the military presence. A special unit has been set up to guard and transport detainees and asylum seekers, while police and Danish Home Guard are still responsible for arrests and ID checks, introduced in early 2016. For now, the soldiers’ mission at the border will last for three months, according to a statement from the Armed Forces.
The move, however, has already sparked criticism, particularly from the mayor of the German town of Flensburg near the border, who called the decision “a disaster” and “a big mistake,” DR Forsiden quoted.
The decision to relieve significant police resources was announced earlier in the month following alarming reports of extreme overtime hours worked by too few officers, and a more-than-year-long discussion in the government. 
What remains unclear is how long the soldiers will be taking over the police duties for at the Jewish sites, with the synagogue having been under continuous police surveillance since February 2015 when it became one of the targets in three separate shooting cases.
On February 15 2015, a Danish-born citizen of Palestinian origin, who pledged allegiance to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), opened fire outside the synagogue, killing one. Earlier, the gunman attacked a cultural center, hosting a gathering on blasphemy and freedom of expression, leaving one dead. The threat level in Denmark remains as “serious,”ranked four on a scale of five.

Spanish nationalists protesting the upcoming Catalan referendum have given Nazi salutes during a rally in Spain's capital. 
Some 100 nationalists took to the streets of Madrid Saturday, protesting the Catalan referendum scheduled for October 1, as well demanding the release of a group of their fellow far-right activists from a previous protest.
Some of the protesters have been openly demonstrating the notorious Nazi salute, while demanding that Spain remain a united state.
"They [Catalan independence supporters] want to destroy a millenary nation, and the important thing is the answer of the Spanish people,” one of the protesters told Raptly.

Unredacted Clinton emails to be reviewed in court, despite State Dept. resistance


A federal judge has ordered a review of unredacted Hillary Clinton emails relating to her use of a private server while US Secretary of State. The State Department has also been ordered to argue why it shouldn’t have to investigate the emails.
In a case brought by conservative watchdog, Judicial Watch, U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ordered the personal review of redacted material from emails “discussing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of iPads and iPhones during her tenure at the State Department," Judicial Watch said.
Thirteen sealed documents must be presented to the court in their entirety for a video-recorded [private] review by November 6, Judge Kollar-Kotelly said, according to court documents.
The order stems from a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch following the government’s refusal to respond to a March 2015 Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request. The group has filed multiple FOIA requests and lawsuits in its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.
Mystery dump: State Department releases over 6,000 of Hillary  documents https://on.rt.com/8okl 
According to a press release, Judicial Watch has requested“All records of requests by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton or her staff to the State Department Office Security Technology seeking approval for the use of an iPad or iPhone for official government business.”
It also demands, “All communications within or between the Office of the Secretary of State, the Executive Secretariat, and the Office of the Secretary and the Office of Security Technology concerning, regarding, or related to the use of unauthorized electronic devices for official government business.”
Judicial Watch argues the redactions should not be covered by deliberative process privilege (the principle that internal government processes are immune from FOIA requests) because there is a “government misconduct” exception.
“Given the difficulty of adjudicating the applicability of the government misconduct exception in the abstract—assuming such an exception exists at all—and the practical reality that this litigation has reduced to relatively small portions of thirteen documents, the Court shall order in camera review of the contested materials,” Judge Kollar-Kotelly wrote.  
The court order also details how Judicial Watch wants the State Department to “be required to conduct a supplemental search of certain additional emails allegedly recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on October 28, 2016.”
The State Department has said it’s not required to search theses materials, as they “are not yet in State’s possession, nor is there any indication when they will be.”
According to Judge Kollar-Kotelly, “while it may be true” that the materials weren’t in the Department’s control at the time the FOIA request was made, “the Court cannot rely on Defendant’s bald assertion to that effect in a legal brief.”
The State Department has been ordered to present “an affidavit addressing the agency’s control of these materials” by November 6.
“It is frankly outrageous that Secretary Tillerson and Attorney General Sessions allow their agencies to cover up for and defend Hillary Clinton’s scandalous and potentially criminal conduct,” Judicial Watch said in a statement. “JW will keep the battles up in court and will continue to educate Americans about the lack of action by these Trump agencies.”
Kollar-Kotelly is a former presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA).

‘If the US threaten us, we will make them pay with our nukes,’ says N. Korean official


As Moscow received a high-level negotiator to discuss North Korea's nuclear program, Pyongyang's ambassador to Russia insisted that the Asian country is not backing down from its vow to deploy force if necessary.
“If the US behaves in ways that deny our state’s right to exist, our republic, as our supreme leader Kim Jong-un has said, will make them pay in full by the just power of our nuclear arsenal,”ambassador Kim Yong-jae said on Saturday, during a Moscow conference dedicated to peace on the Korean peninsula, and the future reunification of its two states.
Kim reiterated his country’s position, dismissing US president Donald Trump’s earlier speech at the UN General Assembly as “the words of a madman.”
Despite the new South Korean government engaging in public diplomatic overtures with Pyongyang, the envoy said that any avenue of rapprochement with Seoul was “closed due to its confrontational and divisive policies.”
Despite belligerent rhetoric on all sides, Choe Son-hui, director general of the North American department at the North Korean foreign ministry, and one of its most prominent nuclear negotiators, held five-hour closed-door talks with top Russian diplomat Oleg Burmistrov in Moscow on Friday.
Moscow and Pyongyang are ready to “find ways to solve regional problems through peaceful, political and diplomatic means,” said a statement from Russia’s foreign ministry after the meeting wrapped up.

The world’s first internet war is raging in Spain ahead of Sunday’s Catalan independence referendum, according to Julian Assange. ...

Assange accuses Spain of conducting ‘world’s first internet war’ to shut down Catalan referendum


The world’s first internet war is raging in Spain ahead of Sunday’s Catalan independence referendum, according to Julian Assange. 
In a series of tweets on Saturday, Assange outlined how hundreds of websites have been censored by Spanish authorities, who have also suspended the use of 29 Catalan government apps relating to the referendum and occupied telecoms buildings.
The world's first internet war has begun, in Catalonia, as the people and government use it to organize an independence referendum on Sunday and Spanish intelligence attacks, freezing telecommunications links, occupying telecoms buildings, censors 100s of sites, protocols etc.
The official referendum website was just one of hundreds to be blocked. On September 20, Spain’s Guardia Civil raidedthe offices of the .cat domain registry in downtown Barcelona, seizing computers and arresting the registry’s IT manager.

Now at: https://www.ref1oct.cat

The Guardia Civil blocks our website for the 2nd time. No notification, no court order, the GC disposes at its discretion. 
8:21 PM - Sep 27, 2017 
The registry was established to provide an online space for Catalan language and culture and has over 100,000 active domain names. The raid came just days after the Spanish government ordered the registry take down all .cat domains used for the referendum.
On Friday, following a court ruling, Google blocked a Catalan government app that allowed users to check their polling stations. The following day police entered the headquarters of the Catalan government's Telecommunications and IT Center, known as CTTI.
Undeterred, Catalan authorities have issued instructions advising citizens to use proxies to circumvent restrictions put in place by internet service providers such as Movistar and Vodafone. Pirate bay co-founder, Peter Sunde, offered his assistance to the Catalan people and government via Twitter.

Many prominent internet activists and academics, including Edward Snowden and Noam Chomsky, have rallied to the Catalan cause in recent days.
Rajoy is free to oppose Catalan independence, but through persuasion alone, not violence. The use of force to halt a vote is oppression.
One can be against Catalan independence and still in favor of human rights. But one cannot be in favor of Rajoy's crackdown and say the same
Assange has been a vocal supporter of the Catalan independence referendum, tweeting that the fate of Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and his government “hangs in the balance over Catalonia.”
“What is happening in Catalonia in the most significant Western conflict between people and state since the fall of the Berlin wall,” Assange tweeted Saturday.
The fate of president Rajoy, PP (Spain's ruling party), Spain's security services and judiciary hangs in the balance over Catalonia. A shock wave is coming and no trick is too dirty, no lie is too bold and no escalation is too much for a deep state to save itself. Watch.
Despite the Spanish government’s crackdown, Catalan separatists are determined to hold the referendum. Activists have occupied dozens of schools, intended to be used as polling stations, to stop police from shutting them down.  
On September 6, Catalonia’s Parliament passed a bill paving the way for an independence referendum to be held on October 1. The Spanish government, however, insists the proposed referendum is illegal.
