 Today's Highlighted Video Story: Senior leaders have called for calm after days of violent anti-government protests in Haiti. Protesters are demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry, after an end to government fuel subsidies caused petrol and diesel prices to skyrocket. Justice Minister Berto Dorcé vowed to identify and punish those behind attacks on property. UN Secretary General António Guterres said he is "deeply concerned" about the unrest.

Focus of the Day Article: In recent years, digital assets including cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have commanded considerable media attention.  Speaking extra-judicially in the foreward to the UKJT Statement on Crypto-assets and Smart Contracts in November 2019, the Master of the Rolls, Sir Geoffrey Vos, has stated that: “In legal terms, cryptoassets and smart contracts undoubtedly represent the future”.  To what extent should the law of the future grant property rights in respect of crypto assets? Will the inalienable right to peaceful enjoyment of possessions apply to tokens existing only on the blockchain? Or to NFTs residing only in the ‘metaverse’?  Full story - UK Human Rights Blog

 Today's Highlighted Video Story: The Commons Speaker is understood to have refused a request to allow a Chinese delegation to attend the Queen's lying in state. The move is in retaliation for China's sanctions against British parliamentarians who have accused China of mistreating Uighur Muslims.  The row means China may stay away from Monday's state funeral, which will be packed with the world's leaders. Their attendance is a measure of how the late Queen's influence extended far beyond the Commonwealth and her dwindling number of realms. 

Focus of the Day Article: After days of lying-in-state, the body of the late Queen Elizabeth II will begin its final journey on Monday morning as part of a grand state funeral - first to Westminster Abbey, for a religious service in front of a congregation of thousands, and then on to Windsor Castle for a more intimate committal service and, finally, a private burial.
