Lawyers for Ghislaine Maxwell have filed a motion for a re-trial, just weeks after she was found guilty of recruiting underage girls to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein. The court had heard her described as "dangerous" and Epstein's "partner in crime" before she was found guilty of five out of six counts she faced. It is not clear whether this forms the basis for Maxwell's lawyers seeking a new trial, but they have previously claimed the revelation warrants this.

The vote by peers this week in favour of making misogyny a hate crime has thrust the issue back into the political spotlight as the debate that began in the aftermath of Sarah Everard’s murder over how to better tackle violence against women continues. In support of a change in the law, which would lead to perpetrators of misogynistic offences receiving extra time on their sentences, Baroness Newlove, the former Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales, said it would send a “powerful message” that the “law is on the side of women” and recognise the reality that “deep-rooted hostility towards women that motivates many” crimes committed against them. All that is, of course, true, but Justice Secretary Dominic Raab responded the following day by reiterating the government’s view that the reform would be a mistake that could even prove “counter-productive”, adding that ministers would seek to overturn the Lords vote when the relevant legislation returns to the Commons.

At least one child was killed in northern Syria this week when a storm blanketed tented camps in snow and brought freezing temperatures, compounding the misery of thousands of people displaced by the Mediterranean country's decade-long war. The child died and its mother was in intensive care after snow caused their tent to collapse in the Qastal Miqdad area, as a result of the storm that struck on Jan. 18, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said. "I was scared the tent would fall down on the kids," Abu Anas said in Zaitoun camp in northern Syria, after his family fled from eastern Gouta, an area on the outskirts of Damascus that was devastated by the conflict.
Bury South MP Christian Wakeford's defection from the Conservative Party to Labour has left voters questioning whether there will now be a by-election in his constituency. The MP was elected in 2019 to the Greater Manchester constituency with a slim majority of 402 in a seat that had been Labour since 1997. Mr Wakeford said the "partygate" scandal confirmed his decision after "many months" of sleepless nights over the government's decisions, from free schools meals and Universal Credit to the Owen Paterson affair and lockdown parties.
