Thursday 14 October 2010 9:19 pm Opec resolves to keep its production targets unchanged Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL Share OPEC yesterday kept intact a supply policy that has served it well for nearly two years and set aside concern a weak dollar could drive the oil price too high for a fragile world economy.Ecuador, which holds the rotating presidency of the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, confirmed the no-change decision and said the group’s next conference would be in Quito on 11 December.Earlier an Opec delegate said the ministers had been “100 per cent” in agreement there was no need to change policy. Oil prices did not react to the widely-expected Opec news, but held above $83 a barrel, drawing support from a weak dollar, which has stoked buying across commodities.Although slightly above the $70-$80 price range, which top exporter Saudi Arabia has said is ideal for producers and consumers, the kingdom’s oil minister said he was still happy with the market.“The biggest challenge we have is to keep the oil market as it is today,” Saudi Arabian Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi said. He declined to be drawn on a price level that might endanger economic recovery, but said producers were concerned about a possible slide back into recession. “I hope we don’t have a double dip. Everybody is working very hard to avoid it.”The oil market has gained momentum as heightened expectation of more quantitative easing to stimulate the US economy has weakened the US dollar. So far oil’s gains have been relatively modest as the dollar impact on oil has been countered by weak market fundamentals.

Swedish gambling operator Svenska Spel has entered into a new partnership with national retail store chain Elon.Under the agreement, Elon stores across Sweden will now be able to sell Svenska Spel’s physical products such as its Triss scratch-cards.The new agreement marks the first time that Svenska Spel will work with a retail store that sells consumers goods. The operator only previously allowed its products to be sold at classic gaming and tobacco stores, grocery shops and ‘on-the-go’ stores such as petrol stations.“We are entering a whole new industry with the cooperation with Elon, so this is very big for us,” Svenska Spel’s head of retail and consumer service Carolina Swaffer said. “Elon dares to pave the way for others and it will be a very exciting collaboration that will be interesting to see how it develops.“It can take time to get this started, customers have to get used to being able to buy their Triss from Elon, but there are great opportunities to get really good sales started. We dream of becoming a natural partner for the entire Elon chain.”Kalle Cers, who owns six Elon stores in Stockholm and Mälardalen, added: “The customer expects the tickets to be there. You almost look for them at large chains.“If I’m off for a birthday celebration or dinner, then I’ve solved that problem, too. It is the perfect gift for adults who have it all.”The new partnership comes after Svenska Spel last month announced a decline in revenue and profits in 2019, in what chief executive Patrik Hofbauer called “the most tumultuous year in the history of the group and the [Swedish] gaming industry.” Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Svenska Spel secures new retail deal with Elon 5th March 2020 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: Europe Nordics Sweden Lottery Topics: Lottery Strategy Email Address Swedish gambling operator Svenska Spel has entered into a new partnership with national retail store chain Elon.

En un foro del Workers World Party el 2 de noviembre en la ciudad de Nueva York, Nieves Ayress Moreno del movimiento La Peña del Bronx y ex prisionera política de la dictadura cívico-militar de Augusto Pinochet leyó la siguiente declaración sobre el actual levantamiento en Chile. El modelo económico neoliberal se está derrumbando bajo la nariz de la élite chilena. Piñera es la continuación de la Dictadura Pinochetista. Chile se encuentra en estado de emergencia, donde Piñera declaró que está en guerra con los manifestantes. Los militares han salido en masa, y se puede escuchar a los tanques rodando por las calles de Santiago una vez más desde los días de la dictadura militar.El viernes 18 de octubre, los jóvenes, en particular los estudiantes de secundaria decidieron que basta con privatizar todo en Chile. Piñera aumentó la tarifa del metro en un dólar en las horas pico. Los estudiantes de secundaria simplemente tuvieron suficiente y saltaron la tarifa del metro en masa. En los días que siguieron Piñera respondió con violencia contra estudiantes secundarios, pensando que la sociedad chilena iba ignorar los abusos.Los jóvenes recordaron a la sociedad chilena que no es sobre el aumento de 300 pesos, pero 30 años de política económica de privatizar todo en el país. Lo que el pueblo le avisa al mundo es el despertar a la pesadilla del mercado; privatiza de la educación, privatiza el agua, privatiza la salud, privatiza el seguro social, privatiza el transporte, baja los salarios del trabajador para subsidiar las utilidades del rico. El pueblo chileno dice “nos quitaron tanto que nos quitaron el miedo”. El descontento en el país se ha manifestado en masa por falso milagro económico chileno que, mostrando su fea realidad de gran desigualdad causada por la privatización y el debilitamiento de los sindicatos, las contaminaciones ecológicas debido a la desregulación. Un milagro económico para los ricos, pero cáncer para la gran mayoría de la sociedad y la madre tierra.Demandamos que Piñera ordene a los milicos a sus cuarteles, en una democracia debería existir el derecho de protestar sin ser disparado.Para más información contacte [email protected]re thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

December 22, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government returns equipment confiscated from two radio stations Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Under Chinese pressure, Nepal sanctions three journalists over Dalai Lama story The information and communication ministry yesterday allowed radio Kantipur FM to recover equipped seized on 21 October – including an encoder, a digital recorder and a satellite modem – which it needs to relay its broadcasts to 16 districts in eastern Nepal.Previously, on 14 December, the authorities returned equipment that had been confiscated from Sagarmatha FM, including a relay transmitter for re-transmitting BBC World Service programmes.__________________________________________________________30.11.05Courts urged to take firm stand in defence of press freedomReporters Without Borders today hailed a provisional ruling by Nepal’s supreme court on November 29 staying the government-ordered closure of Radio Sagarmatha (Everest), which allowed the station to resume broadcasting after being forced off the air for two days by the seizure of its equipment and arrest of five of its journalists in a police raid.The court’s judges should now demonstrate their support for press freedom by handing down definitive rulings in favour of Nepal’s radio stations, especially Sagarmatha, South Asia’s oldest community radio station, and Kantipur FM, the press freedom organisation said.“The supreme court stirred up trouble with its recent decision supporting a government ordinance cracking down hard on the press, and it is now time for the Nepalese judicial system to put itself at the forefront of the struggle to ensure respect for the constitution and civil liberties,” Reporters Without Borders added.Police and information ministry representatives seized equipment from Radio Sagarmatha on the evening of 27 November in order to prevent an exclusive interview by the Nepalese-language service of the BBC World Service with Maoist rebel leader Prachanda from being retransmitted by Radio Sagarmatha on the FM waveband.Five of the station’s technicians and reporters, Durga Karki, Rajendra Rijal, Deepak Pandey, Deepak Babu Aryal and Punya Bandari, were arrested and held for 15 hours. The only woman employee present, Durga Karki, was also arrested but was released almost immediately.Radio Sagarmatha presenter Gham Raj Luintel said the police told them not to broadcast programmes that could help to “promote terrorist activities.” Prachanda said in the interview that the Maoists would be ready to accept the principle of a monarchy if King Gyanendra held free elections for a constituent assembly.Seven other radio stations were simultaneously threatened with reprisals if they broadcast the interview, while the state-owned Radio Nepal suspending its retransmissions of the BBC World Service’s English-language programming for 12 hours. Radio Nepal and the BBC signed a retransmission contract in November 2004.The BBC did broadcast the interview, but since then access to its Nepalese-language service’s website has been blocked by the Nepalese authorities and most of the half-dozen Nepalese stations that normally retransmit BBC programmes have ceased to do so.

ColumnsCleaning Cash- Understood Otherwise R Ashwin23 Jun 2020 12:27 AMShare This – xIntroductionLaundering, in basic terms, is understood as the process of making a dirty, clean look. This is not as we have understood in recent times as cleansing of the money tainted with viruses using a dis-infectant but, cleaning of the bad money (money earned through illegal means) making it appear as a clean(laundered) money, earned legally. In other words, it is nothing but making money generated out of criminal activity (ill gotten) as money made from a legitimate source. Placement, Integration and layering were the foundational steps and process of typical money laundering. Inflation of cash receipts, where illegal funds are flown in and then projecting as if more genuine transactions had taken place has been a traditional method of money laundering History It all started with “Cleaning Cash in China”- An interesting “CCCs”, were the history traces to 2000 years ago when Chinese merchants cycled money through various intricate businesses transactions to hide the income from the government. One of the greatest launders of the modern era, we all would have heard of the Pablo Escobar, Medellín Cartel, who became the finest laundromats of converting the “dirty cash” made by selling of drugs to a clean cash, which not only awakened the agency for conversion but also acted as an eye-opener by showing the entire world that selling of narcotics and money made through funding of illegal terrorism were the genesis for this cleansing system. Like the dirty money on one side and clean money on the other, this method has not only fueled the black economy in our country which has indirectly fallen on the heads of the common public by inflation in indirect taxes over the period of years in different names but also has resulted in the Country’s strained economy. Legal Statutes Important provision under PML,Act: 1. Section-2(u): “proceeds of crime”: Means any property derived or obtained, directly or indirectly, by any person as a result of criminal activity relating to a scheduled offence or the value of any such property; 2. Section-3: Offence of money-Laundering: Whosoever directly or indirectly attempts to indulge or knowingly assists or knowingly is a party or is actually involved in any process or activity connected proceeds of crime including its concealment, possession, acquisition or use and projecting or claiming it as untainted property shall be guilty of offence of money-laundering Dissection of Section-3 of PML,Act Can a SuperStructure be Laid without a Foundation? We all know that for raising a superstructure we always need a strong foundation, so is the peoceedings U/s 3 of the Act to be punished U/s 4 of the Act.The above dissection, is of Sec-3 of the Act which goes to the root of the scheme of the Act, shows that for an offence of money laundering, the chain factor is the “proceeds of the Crime”. As stated in Sec.2(u) of the Act, it should have been derived out of a criminal activity which forms part of the schedule. For which first whether a crime has been committed has to be determined, to know if the money is actually derived out of a crime or not (which can be proved only based on the outcome of predicate offence) (now even the Joint trial being removed), Can a prosecution be separately initiated which is contradictory to the foundation of the Act. Without knowing if the money itself forms part of the crime, slamming a prosecution is similar to raising a super structure without a foundation which has to ultimately fall to the ground. Ultimately if the accused is acquitted in such scheduled offence, based out of which the accused is alleged to have generated illegitimate money wouldn’t anymore be a crime money since acquitted. Per Contra, amendment gives powers to the department to file a closure report if no material is found for which they will have to again determine if the criminal activity is committed. If it is not a crime money then Sec.3 wouldn’t get attracted. Case Law The Decision of Kerala High Court in Inspector of Police Vs. Assistant Director has held as follows: “12. …. Since the Sine qua non for prosecution of an offence under the Money Laundering Act is the existence of proceeds of a predicate offence, it can be said that, conviction of an offence under Money Laundering Act depends upon the establishment of predicate offence and the generation of that proceeds of crime.” The Decision of Delhi High Court, in an attachment proceedings in the case of “Mahanivesh Oils and Foods Pvt. Ltd. vs. Directorate of Enforcement (25.01.2016) – DELHC) has held as: “48. Although, the impugned order records that the concerned officer has reason to believe that the property in question is likely to be concealed, transferred or dealt with in a manner, which may result in frustrating the proceedings relating to confiscation of the said proceeds of crime, there is no reference to any fact or material in the impugned order which could lead to this inference. A mere mechanical recording that the property is likely to be concealed, transferred or dealt with would not meet the requirements of Section 5(1) of the Act. Consequently, the impugned order is likely to be set aside.” Yet another decision of Delhi High Court in Raman Sharma and Ors (30.10.2019 – DELHC) held as follows: “10. It is clear that unless and until there is a case registered under a scheduled offence, Enforcement Directorate shall not have cause of action to institute proceedings under Prevention of Money Laundering Act which means that registration of ECIR by Enforcement Directorate can be only after registration of case for a scheduled offence. ECIR is the information recorded by the Enforcement Directorate regarding the registration of predicate offences and is basis for initiating their investigation. 11. It is also not in dispute that no FIR has been registered regarding schedule offence till date. Therefore, it is clear that Enforcement Directorate cannot conduct investigation in the present case in the absence of registration of FIR regarding schedule offences.” There it is evident from the above judgments that absence of predicate or if there acquittal from the predicate offence, prosecution cannot be initiated. This not only tells that but also establishes the fact that the Act itself is interlinked and dependent on the outcome of the scheduled offences. This has been the scheme of the Act and the way in which it had been framed. Critical Analysis From the bare reading of the PML,Act its object and significance are understood as controlling the money laundering from taking place and also to take charge over the “proceeds of crime”. Thus establishing the nexus between initiation of proceedings under the Act and predicate offence as un disolavable. Though Sec 3 and 4 of the act projects it as a “stand alone” super structure its roots are derived out of “proceeds of crime”- the foundation, which falls under schedule thus making it indirectly dependent upon.Therefore it cannot be considered to be a stand alone process. In absence of any criminal activity, or without considering if there had been any criminal activity ,alleging that the money is ill gotten is nothing but making a person face an ordeal of prosecution by pick and choose method which needs interference.

ABC News(EL PASO, TX) — Authorities suspect a virulent anti-immigration screed posted online before the El Paso shooting was written by the alleged gunman, a top police official indicated Sunday.Asked whether the attack was a hate crime, El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen told reporters during a news conference Sunday that authorities were still working to conclusively attribute what he called the “manifesto” to the attack, but said “it’s beginning to look more solidly like that is the case.”The four-page document was reportedly posted to online message boards less than an hour before the suspect, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, purportedly gunned down at least 20 people and injuring 26 others at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart on Saturday.The document decried what the author believed was an ongoing “invasion” of Texas by Hispanic people and what the author foresaw as the impending destruction of America. It suggested that the planned attack would give immigrants additional incentive to return to their countries of origin.Though the author indicated he did not consider himself a white supremacist, the document lambasted “race mixers” and said the U.S. should be split into territories based on race. While the document was critical of Republicans, it accused Democrats of using immigrants to engineer a nation-wide political coup.In the wake of the shooting, prominent critics of President Donald Trump accused the president of using language, like the word “invasion,” that has emboldened racists and white supremacists. The document posted online predicted the attack would be connected to Trump’s rhetoric, and the author said that his ideology predated Trump and hadn’t changed for years.On ABC’s “This Week” Sunday, Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney referenced the document to make a similar point, saying, “This was a sick person… no politician is to blame for that.”Other defenders of the president said Trump should not be blamed for mass shootings, which have long been a problem in the U.S. “Finger-pointing, name-calling & screaming with your keyboards is easy, yet it solves not a single problem, saves not a single life,” senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted on Sunday.John Cohen, a former senior Department of Homeland Security official and current ABC News contributor, said he’s concerned the president’s rhetoric could still be a factor in extremist attacks in the U.S.Cohen said that while Trump’s hardline on immigration and incendiary rhetoric can mobilize and inspire his political base, “where this gets dangerous” is when it “may also serve to empower and inspire mentally unwell, violence-prone individuals who view the president’s words as giving them permission to commit acts of violence.”The document linked to the suspect appears to describe one of the weapons used in the shooting and goes into detail about the lethality of various assault rifle-style weapons and ammunition. It says that the attacker had been planning the assault for less than a month, which Cohen said underlines the challenge faced by law enforcement when it comes to discovering and stopping such plots.“It’s what the FBI and the Secret Service call ‘from flash to bang,’” Cohen said of the time between someone suddenly deciding to act and acting. “You can have somebody who’s anger is simmering for years, and then all of the sudden they hear something or something happens in their lives and they decide to act.In the document, the would-be attacker says that he would not be taken alive by police and feared having to live through a trial and receiving the death penalty.Crusius was captured by police after the shooting and a local prosecutor announced that he would file capital murder charges.John Bash, the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Texas, said Sunday that federal authorities are investigating the incident as an act of “domestic terrorism,” meaning the suspect was allegedly intent on “coercing and intimidating a civilian population.”Bash said federal authorities are also considering bringing hate crimes and federal firearms charges against Crusius that carry the penalty of death.The mass shooting came less than 15 hours before another gunman killed nine people and wounded more than two dozen others in a popular business district in Dayton, Ohio.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
