Sometimes that means they occasionally self-publish “Quick Tips” in our Knowledge Base – such as one of this week’s top articles regarding a printing issue with Microsoft Edge.In order to achieve a speedy publication, Quick Tips may represent only partial solutions or work-arounds that are still in development or pending further proof of successfully resolving an issue. As such Quick Tips have not been reviewed, validated or approved by Dell and should be used with appropriate caution.Direct2Dell is designed to bring you news and stories about Dell people, products, services, partners and customers.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Haiti’s justice system has long been dysfunctional. But in recent years, delayed judicial appointments, a spike in violence and protests by judges and court clerks demanding higher salaries and better working conditions have overwhelmed a system in which some 80% of inmates are being held with no trial amid a rise in what activists say are illegal and arbitrary preventive detentions. The United Nations said in a statement this week that the conditions are so unacceptable that they constitute a violation of the prohibition of cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.
A Pennsylvania county prosecutor is accused of sexually assaulting women who were his clients in criminal and child custody cases when he worked as a defense attorney. Bradford County District Attorney Chad Michael Salsman was charged Wednesday with three counts of sexual assault, five counts of indecent assault, witness intimidation, obstruction, and promoting prostitution. A grand jury investigation heard women describe being coerced and assaulted. Salsman is a 44-year-old Republican who was elected in November 2019 to serve as top prosecutor in the rural county along the New York line. Salsman’s lawyer says he denies all the allegations and expects to defend the charges at trial.
KHIRBET HUMSU, West Bank (AP) — A battle of wills is underway in the occupied West Bank, where Israel has demolished the herding community of Khirbet Humsu three times in as many months, displacing dozens of Palestinians. Each time they have returned and tried to rebuild, saying they have nowhere else to go. The tug-of-war is underway in impoverished communities across what’s known as Area C, which makes up 60% of the West Bank and where Israel has full military control. Israel says the communities were built without permission, while rights groups say the demolitions amount to the forcible transfer of civilians, a war crime under international law.
