Donald Trump blocks Chinese acquisition of US semiconductor firm

Washington: President Donald Trump on Wednesday blocked attempts by a Chinese state-owned firm to acquire an American semiconductor manufacturer on national security concerns, drawing a rebuke from Beijing.

The acquisition of Lattice Semiconductor Corporation, a publicly-traded Oregon company, by Chinese-owned Canyon Bridge Fund could endanger the US government`s use of sensitive products the company produces, the Treasury Department said in a statement.

Trump`s predecessor, Barack Obama, had also intervened to prevent a similar deal involving semiconductors on security concerns last year.

Chinese government-backed Grand Chip Investment scrapped plans to buy German semiconductor equipment maker Aixtron in December after Washington rejected the inclusion of Aixtron`s US unit over fears it could put sensitive technology with potential military applications in Chinese hands.

"It is important to note that the US government has been particularly concerned with foreign investment, particularly Chinese investment, into the US semiconductor industry for years," said Lawrence Ward, a partner at the international law firm Dorsey & Whitney in global business focusing on US national security law.

"It is likely premature to think that the Trump administration is taking a hawkish approach to Chinese investment across all industry sectors but, of course, only time will tell," Ward said.

Not scared of anyone, says brave Delhi woman who fought abductors in Vasant Kunj

“She fought back bravely. But I am scared for her now,” said the father of the 20-year-old woman who fought off her abductors in Vasant Kunj on Saturday evening. He fears what would have happened if there were no people around and if the accused had managed to abduct her.

He said his daughter did not know the accused.

The woman, however, was unfazed by the incident. “I cannot stop stepping out of the house just because of some people. I want to earn money for my family and myself. I am not scared of anyone. If anything happens again, I will fight back,” she said. She had been working in the beauty parlour for the past two years and aims to open her own one day.

The woman’s father said they were under pressure to withdraw the case. “They are calling it a mistake. Maybe they were looking for someone else and not my daughter but how can that justify this behaviour? If it was not my daughter, it may have been someone else. That does not change their intention. I told their family that no father would tolerate what they did to my daughter,” he said.

The woman agreed. “We will not withdraw the case. Why should we. Someone needs to raise their voice. If I keep quiet today, they will have the audacity to this to someone else tomorrow,” she said.

Aadhar case hearing: Privacy embedded in all processes of human life, petitioners tell 9-judge Constitution Bench

New Delhi: A nine-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court on Wednesday commenced hearing to examine whether right to privacy is a fundamental right - a question pivotal to the challenge to the validity of the Aadhaar scheme.

The nine-judge constitution bench hearing the matter is being headed by Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar. Other members of the bench include Justices J Chelameswar, SA Bobde, RK Agrawal, Rohinton Fali Nariman, Abhay Manohar Sapre, DY Chandrachud, Sanjay Kishan Kaul and S Abdul Nazeer.

Responding to it, Centre had then emphatically assured the Supreme Court that biometrics of Aadhar cardholders were safe and had not fallen into other hands.

Through its order, the Supreme Court upheld the validity of an Income Tax Act provision making Aadhar mandatory for the allotment of permanent account number (PAN) cards and the filing of tax returns, but imposed a partial stay on its implementation until a constitution bench addresses the right to privacy issue.

A bench comprising justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan also upheld the legislative competence of Parliament in enacting Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act.

An eight-judge bench in 1954 and six-judge bench in 1962 had both ruled that there is no right to privacy.
