Kuzma/iStockBy EMILY SHAPIRO and ALEXANDER MALLIN, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The two men arrested and charged last week for allegedly assaulting Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick and other officers with bear spray during the Jan. 6 riot now have been indicted by a grand jury on 10 counts.Charges against Julian Khater of Pennsylvania and George Tanios of West Virginia include conspiracy to injure officers, assault on federal officers and civil disorder.The indictment alleges Khater and Tanios “planned and discussed the timing of when to use the chemical spray,” which “did cause significant bodily injury.”An affidavit said three officers, including Sicknick, “were incapacitated and unable to perform their duties for at least 20 minutes or longer while they recovered from the spray.” One officer said the spray was “as strong as, if not stronger than, any version of the pepper spray they had been exposed to during their training as law enforcement officers.”Last week, Khater and Tanios both were ordered to remain in government custody pending further judicial proceedings. No date has been set for their next court appearance in Washington, D.C., where they’ll be arraigned on the new grand jury indictment.Sicknick was hospitalized after the Capitol riot and died on Jan. 7. Authorities still are working to determine whether the assault was a direct cause of Sicknick’s death.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
Previous Article Next Article A diversity training programme launched by Camden and Islington NHS Trust isto be introduced at other London trusts in an effort to help people from ethnicminorities gain promotion to directors’ posts. Keith Marshall, director of HR at Camden and Islington, said the Black andEthnic Leadership scheme is to be extended to 11 other London-based trusts. Marshall told Personnel Today the scheme was launched because although 35per cent of the trust’s staff are from ethnic minorities, there needs to bemore ethnic representation in the top third of the organisation. The programme is designed to develop the skills of middle-ranking staff,such as junior managers and nurses at sister level, into a position where theycan apply for a director’s post, he said. “What the course is about is not extra [hospital-based] skills butconfidence and self awareness,” said Marshall. The course runs for six to eight months, and takes an average half a day aweek for those involved. Marshall said the scheme had initially been pitched at too high a level, buthas now been adapted to make it more relevant to those taking part. Marshall added that the success of the scheme depends on the support of linemanagers. Comments are closed.
