The United States President, Donald Trump’s first pardon was on the 85-year-old Joe Arpaio. It was one of the most controversial presidential pardons in the U.S history. Arpaio is said to be one of the strictest and harshest sheriffs based in Maricopa County, Arizona.
The sheriff is widely renowned for his wrongful arrest of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, the Village Voice owners. Over ten years ago, he ordered the arrest of the duo and detained them on the grounds of revealing vital details of a grand-jury investigation.
Lacey and Larkin held top positions in the Village Voice Media Newspaper. Larkin served in the firm as a Chief Executive Officer and Lacey worked as the chief executive editor. Phoenix New Times is a mainstream stream publication of Village Voice Media.
A day before the arrest of the Village Media chiefs, the publication wrote a news article concerning a grand jury. The firm, however, did not know that the matter was under investigation by the federal court.
Previously, the firm had also been involved in extensive coverage of Joe Arpaio’s discriminative and heinous law enforcement structure. The Sherrif had been elected to his position and later reelected six times.
Several publications covered his department’s aggressive and abusive treatment of women and inmates. The procedure was unusually harsh when the victims were immigrants. In December 2011, Murray Snow, a U.S district judge injunction Arpaio and Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.
The order was aimed at their radicalized treatment of the immigrants. The judge brought forward many people whose rights had been violated by the sheriff. Despite the court’s massive ruling, Arpaio and his department intensified their crackdown on immigrants for eighteen months. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase
In the year 2013, he was accused of racial discrimination, he admitted to the charges.
The sheriff heavily protested on judge Murray Snow’s ruling. Nevertheless, judge Susan Bolton convicted him of criminal contempt.
In her ruling, the federal judge stated that Joe had willingly disobeyed judge Murray’s order. The judge further said that Joe had failed to reciprocate the judgement down to his employees.
Larkin and Lacey’s Phoenix Times was the sole source of Arpaio’s heinous acts. In fact, many other newspapers borrowed from them when it came to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his department. The scandal came to the limelight when more papers covered it, and this led to public outrage especially from the sympathizers.
Lacey and Larkin were detained for 24 days and later released. The duo filed a petition in court, later on, uncovering more of the sheriff’s corruption cases. They revealed that Joe did not only arrest and detain the Latinos, but he also discriminated against their sympathizers.
As part of the settlement deal, Phoenix firm was given $3.7 million. Lacey believes that Arpaio’s presidential pardon by U.S president, Donald Trump was politically instigated. Joe had been a strong supporter of Trump early in his campaigns.
Lacey also saw the release as a move to strengthen Trump’s support base primarily for the people who viewed Joe as a hero.

For years, EU has been the leading provider of foreign investment in India. But, still, they are present in just a few industries whereas many other sectors are still unexplored. Anil Chaturvedi has been working towards strengthening the cross-border investment by European companies in India. Ever since the new government has introduced new FDI laws, it has become easier for European countries not just to enjoy many other benefits. Anil Chaturvedi explains the different reasons why a company in Europe should no longer be afraid to expand their services to India as it has one of the most lucrative markets in the world.
According to Anil Chaturvedi, one of the top industries that could benefit European companies and Indians as well as the solar energy and the wind power companies based out of Europe. The demand for electricity will double in the next five years, and it will need as much support as it can get from foreign investment to meet the growing requirement. Since India has been exploring these options, they are the perfect investment opportunity for companies and will allow millions of people in India access to clean energy and also introduce new jobs for the youth in the country. Anil Chaturvedi works closely with public and private sector companies who are willing to invest in India so that he can answer any questions that they might have and also help them build a strategy for the same.
Anil Chaturvedi has done his Bachelor of Arts from Meerut University with Honors in Economics and has completed his MBA from the Delhi University. He joined State Bank of India, New York branch as a probationary officer. Later on, he joined ANZ Grindlays Bank, where he served for 18 years as the Country Head for US Operations. Currently, Anil Chaturvedi is working with Hinduja Bank, Switzerland, where he is trying to bring more and more European businesses to the Indian subcontinent. It is majorly due to the change in the trade and business laws under the new Indian government. The flexibility in the trade and economic laws that have been implemented in India would help the foreign businesses setting up their base in India much more comfortable.
