J&K govt. continues with blanket ban on civilian traffic

first_imgA day after Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, claimed that the ban on civilian traffic on the national highway in the Valley was “not a blanket ban but mere regulation of traffic,” the State Traffic department issued a fresh circular announcing a blanket ban on civilian traffic on Thursday. A spokesman of the traffic department in Kashmir issued these directions on Thursday that no movement of any type of vehicle shall be allowed on the 73-km stretch of the national highway between Nashree and Qazigund during restricted hours from 10 a.m. till 3 p.m. Only vehicles carrying pilgrims for the Amarnath yatra were allowed during the restricted period.However, Mr. Khan on Wednesday claimed there was no blanket ban on the highway “but regulation of traffic.” The statement came days after Governor Satya Pal Malik said the restriction hours were reduced to two hours from six.Locals and drivers on the highway in south Kashmir complained of regular halt of civilian traffic during the restricted time.National Conference president and MP from Srinagar Farooq Abdullah said “people were being intimidated on the national highway.” “Every now and then we see the Governor administration come up with reckless diktats of all sorts. The divisional administration is also giving misleading statements in this context. The people, especially the traders, students, and patients are at the receiving end of this,” Dr. Abdullah said.Many commuters on Thursday posted videos online where ambulances were also stopped during the restricted hours. “There are frequent incidents of civilians being thrashed by security forces in a scuffle over the restrictions,” said Nazeer Ahmad, a resident of Anantnag.last_img read more

Lucia and Talk ‘N Text before taking this job at Meralco. “The next goal for us is to win the championship (this time).”Brownlee made that triple in the face of Allan Durham last year, and though the Meralco import has repeatedly said that it’s all behind him now, Durham said that memories of that painful loss still haunt him to this day.“I’ve been trying to move on, but the media keep bringing that stuff up,” Durham had told reporters recently. “But none of that matters, last year doesn’t matter.

They make individual and collective errors. Sometimes you have to laugh. They injuries are not an excuse, most of the players who stepped in are internationals.“The quality they had been showing vanished (at Brighton) and it became obvious what their weakest link was – the defence.“I don’t know what’s going on with some of these players. During the long unbeaten run you thought Arsenal are back on track.”But now I look back at the number of those games in which they were lucky and, suddenly, reality returned.“They need to raise their game mentally on Saturday. I’ve seen glimpses of improvement compared to previous years but you can’t perform for just half an hour against Liverpool. You need to be fully switched on for 90 minutes, especially away from home.“If Arsenal go to Anfield thinking they can just keep plodding away the way they have been, it’s over – they’ll leave the stadium with three or four goals against them.” last_img read more

A Bill to Absolve Certain National Heroes and Their Supporters from Criminal Liability

first_imgMr. Speaker, Members of this Honourable House, Ladies and Gentlemen, Good afternoon.M. Speaker, Today must go down in the annals of this Honourable House as a day of historic proportions, the value and substance of which must never be diminished. Today, we the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of our forebears unite around an honourable act – the tabling of a Bill whose objective is to redeem and restore the dignity and integrity of those who suffered much, even to the point of giving their lives, so that we would be free – free to be who we want to be, free to aspire to the best we can be, free to make them proud by the various actions we put in place to assure them that we their children will one day rid our land of persistent poverty and self-destruction, and carve out for our beloved country a destiny moulded in sustainable prosperity.Mr. Speaker, Words from Jamaican poet Vera Bell come to mind as we contemplate this important activity on behalf of our ancestors:Ancestor on the auction blockAcross the years your eyes seek mineCompelling me to lookI see you sweating, toiling, sufferingWithin your loins I see the seedOf multitudesFrom your labourGrow roads, aqueducts, civilization.Yours was the task to clear the ground(Ours) be the task to build.Mr. Speaker, Today we are compelled to look back through the course of our history, a glorious history of resistance and resilience, of indomitable spirit and heroic stance. And we do so in order to put this activity into its correct perspective.Mr. Speaker, the past we reflect on today was the worst of times. It was a time of hardship and oppression for people of African descent who were taken forcibly from their families and homes in Africa and brought to serve in chattel slavery on plantations across Jamaica, the Caribbean and the Americas. In this most demeaning process, the colonizers sought to take from these Africans all the vestiges of their humanity – their names, their identity, their dignity. Their lot was to enrich the enslavers and planters, to bring fortunes to the crown even as they lost contact with everything they knew and loved in their native Africa. Guyanese Caribbean historian and political activist, Walter Rodney, in reflecting on this period of world history, described it as How Europe Underdeveloped Africa.Mr. Speaker, our ancestors arrived in Jamaica over three centuries of the Trans-Atlantic Trade in Africans. But we must pause to remember also the many who did not arrive, like those who chose the waters of the Atlantic over chattel slavery. And there were those, as in the Zong incident off the coast of Jamaica, in the vicinity of Black River, who were tossed overboard into the Caribbean Sea to lighten the ship and claim insurance money.Mr. Speaker, Those who arrived, landed at various ports (Kingston Harbour/Falmouth/Lucea/etc.) and were placed on auction blocks, later to be branded like animals, given new names, and led to the various plantations across the country. There they toiled and laboured in every kind of weather to fill the coffers of Europe, even as Africa and the so-called New World became impoverished.Mr. Speaker, our ancestors were of an ancestral pedigree that was not daunted by challenges, no matter how great they may be or how seemingly unsurmountable the obstacles. They came to Jamaica shackled and belaboured, but within their fertile minds dwelt the militant cultures they had fashioned back home in the various tribal forces of the Continent. Mr. Speaker, they soon became freedom fighters, “buffalo soldiers, stolen from Africa, fighting on arrival, fighting for survival”. In this prolific and prolonged campaign, they wreaked mayhem and holy war against the oppressors. They made life difficult for those who would try to rule them, making them realize that though they would enslave the body, they could not enslave their mind. Their fertile mind was in a state of constant preparation for the time when they or their children would be free.And so, Mr. Speaker, Tacky struck for freedom for the enslaved Africans. He led one of the most serious and solid campaigns against the oppressors, in the parish of St. Mary, between May and July 1760. The fierceness and determination of its campaign as well as the level of militancy and skill demonstrated by the leader, caused the Tacky War or St. Mary Rebellion to be considered as the “most significant slave rebellion in the Caribbean between the 1733 slave insurrection in St. John and the 1791 Haitian Revolution”.And then, there was Right Excellent Sam Sharpe, National Hero. His campaign was one of the most remarkable in organization, meticulous planning and effective implementation. Determined to end the tyranny of slavery, this Baptist deacon held meetings at nights in various sections of St. James, from Catadupa to Kensington, as part of his campaign. His was the determination to “rather die on yonder gallows than to live one more day of slavery”. And, as the record shows, he did die at the hands of the executioner on May 23, 1832 after succeeding in staging the first organized labour resistance in Jamaica.Mr. Speaker, the most significant achievement of the Christmas Rebellion was that it caused the British crown to abolish slavery. But, emancipation, wrought in 1834, did not end the rule of tyranny of the European mercenaries. It also did not reduce the militancy of the African people. And so as the oppression reached high levels, by 1865 it was the turn of Right Excellent George William Gordon, a legislator, and Right Excellent Paul Bogle, a Baptist deacon, to lead a multitude of followers in another determined effort to put an end to the tyranny.And then, finally, there was in modern Jamaica, a recognition that slavery had infiltrated the minds of the enslaved who had by then showed signs of what could be seen as an inferiority complex. Armed with insight from the books he read, Right Excellent Marcus Garvey became the voice of black consciousness as he promoted a philosophy of black business and political acumen. Garvey’s philosophy was supported by an activism that saw him engaging in business and politics, which soon brought him into conflict with the modern version of the imperial power. Garvey’s militancy was in the force of his words, his unwavering stance in the face of opposition and his belief in the power of the black man to become master of his own destiny. This, invariably, placed him in a posture of collision with the colonial rulers which led to his imprisonment.It must also be noted, Mr. Speaker, that in saluting the leaders cited in this presentation, our Bill recognizes those who supported these movements. These were the rank and file African people who believed in the leadership, saw the need to battle against the forces of oppression, and, cognizant of the type of punishment that would result, were willing and determined to become participants in the cause, even unto death. We salute these rank and file persons in this Bill today, whom we treat in the same manner as the leaders they supported, in another most blatant demonstration of complicity. In other words, we the generation that has taken up this task of absolving our forebears are, by this action, complicit with them in their various campaigns and endeavours, and treat with the supporters, sympathizers and participants by association in like manner as we do their leaders. Mr. Speaker, let the record show!Mr. Speaker, in those worst of times of colonial oppression and slavery, those who would dare to stand up against man’s inhumanity to man, to strike out against all forms of tyranny, to promote a militant campaign to restore the dignity of an entire people, were seen by the organs of said tyranny as conspirators, enemies and even criminals. These oppressors, with authority given to them by egregious laws, created labels of terror and oppression as they determined that the freedom fighters be deemed as enemies to the very freedom for which they fought.And so, Mr. Speaker, we the children of these freedom fighters who gave up life and liberty so we can be free, cannot sit in silence and acquiesce to a system that rendered those who freed us with their lives as criminals. It would be unjust for the children of the oppressed, emboldened by a vision of future liberty for their children, to sit silently and allow the names of these martyrs for freedom to have their names and images tarnished by a brutal uncaring system of governance. It is the duty of those of us who are the inheritors of the new life that resulted from their self-sacrifice, to take the bold step and correct the wrongs of the past, restore the dignity and integrity of the cause for which they so willingly died.The following extract from the book Daddy Sharpe by Fred Kennedy, and cited as words written by Methodist Minister Rev. Henry Bleby, captures it well:“I witnessed the execution… I was anxious to see how he would demean himself, when actually confronted with the stern and solemn realities of death and eternity… I could not help feeling deep sorrow and indignation, as I turned from his death-scene, and brushed away the tears which the contemplation of his (tragic) fate called forth, that such a man as Samuel Sharpe, who possessed a mind which under proper influence and direction was capable of noble things, should be thus immolated at the polluting shrine of slavery… Sam Sharpe was the most intelligent and remarkable slave I have ever known”.Mr. Speaker, it is this that we are doing by tabling this Bill – provide a situation for an entire nation to appreciate the kind of mind that our ancestors had and the remarkable ability and tenacity they displayed. This Bill gives new life to these our heroes and unsung heroes. This Bill seeks to redress the wrongs and set the captives free.Mr Speaker, permit me at this point to express appreciation to a number of persons and entities who have played supportive roles in the processes we have followed. They are Minister Mike Henry, who has been one of those at the forefront in advocating for Reparations; Senator Tom Tavares Finson, Professor Verene Sheperd for her research and advocacy; Dr Julius Garvey; the Council on Reparations, the Legislative Committee; the Attorney General’s Office and of course the Cabinet.Mr. Speaker, if I may be allowed in closing one final personal testimony, allow me to say how privileged I feel as one who was born and who grew up in the bowels of West Kingston to have been chosen by the ancestors to table this very significant Bill of redress. As I speak I hear the voices and feel the spirits of such greats as Mortimer Planno, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and all those who brought light to the eyes of so many, so that West Kingston became the oasis of Jamaica’s greatest gift to the world – Reggae Music, with anthems to the oppressed like One Love, Many Rivers to Cross, Equal Rights and Justice, Revolution, One Man Against the World, War, Stepping outa Babylon, and so many others.Today, Mr. Speaker, this humble daughter of West Kingston invites us all in this Honourable House to unite in celebrating this Bill “to absolve certain National Heroes, namely, The Right Excellent Samuel Sharpe, The Right Excellent George William Gordon, The Right Excellent Paul Bogle, The Right Excellent Marcus Mosiah Garvey, their supporters, sympathizers and participants by association, and other freedom fighters, from criminal liability arising from participation in the 1760 Tacky’s or St. Mary Rebellion, the 1831 to 1832 Christmas Rebellion, the 1865 Morant Bay Rebellion and the 1929 campaign of the People’s Political Party, respectively, and to provide for connected matters”.Yes,Their resistance and militancy led to many skirmishes with the colonial rulers. As the custodians of authority based on Europeans determining their right to divide Africa and the world around them and set up empires for themselves, they legislated against the activities of the enslaved. And so, Mr. Speaker, the determination to free oneself from the bondage of slavery became an offence, punishable by some of the most horrific forms of punishment ever contrived, including execution.Mr. Speaker, to us, these are heroes on whose shoulders we now stand tall. To the colonial oppressors they were dissidents, fighting against the status quo, terrorizing the planters and their families, being criminalsMr. Speaker, for the colonial oppressors, those through whose daily rumblings and skirmishes with plantation owners, overseers and militia, wereIn doing so, we acclaim our ancestral pedigree as fostered by many who, rather than give in to the brutality of their colonial masters, preferred rather than live in slavery to “die on yonder gallows”… and did!last_img read more

Morocco okays austerity budget as jobless clash with police

first_imgRabat — Moroccan lawmakers approved on Wednesday an austerity budget for 2014 in a vote overshadowed by clashes between police and unemployed graduates outside parliament.The draft budget, approved by a vote of 164-95, includes a 3.1 percent cut in public spending aimed at reducing the deficit to 4.9 percent of GDP.Jobless graduates, who frequently march in the streets of Rabat demanding work, protested outside the parliament, and several dozen of them clashed with the police, an AFP journalist reported. Some 15 of them who tried to climb over the fence were arrested, the official MAP news agency reported, adding that six members of the security forces were injured.Morocco needs to reassure international lenders by plugging its budget deficit.Since coming to power in 2011, the Islamist-led government has battled to fix the country’s ailing finances and reduce its ballooning deficit, which topped seven percent two years ago.The central bank governor said in September that the government should achieve its deficit target of 5.5 percent by the end of 2013.The new budget, which is based on a growth forecast of 4.2 percent, an exchange rate of 8.5 dirhams to the dollar and an average oil price of 105 dollars per barrel, aims to bring the deficit to below 5.0 percent of GDP.High youth unemployment, an unaffordable subsidies system and the crisis in the euro zone, Morocco’s top trade partner, have compounded the economic challenges facing the cash-strapped government of Abdelilah Benkirane.In a bid to rein in fuel subsidies, the government began implementing a controversial fuel price indexation system in September.last_img read more

UNESCO condemns attack on Christian radio station in Kenya

In its latest defence of freedom of expression and the media, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today condemned last week’s attack on a Christian radio station in Nairobi, Kenya, that left one person dead and two others injured.“No religion and no community win when violence is used to settle differences,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said in a statement warning that this “murderous attack” that could so easily trigger inter-communal violence.“This aggression is unacceptable for several reasons: first, it is an intolerable attack on press freedom, a right that is at the heart of UNESCO’s mandate; it is also carries the seeds of new misunderstanding and violence, yet dialogue between civilizations and religions is the only option for humanity,” he added.On the night of 12 May, assailants raided Radio Hope, which belongs to the Nairobi Pentecostal Church, killing one security guard and wounding a second and a radio presenter. A passer-by was injured when the assailants fled after setting fire to the premises with Molotov cocktails. The attack followed a programme in Swahili urging Muslims to convert to Christianity.Mr. Matsuura has issued frequent condemnations of the murder of journalists around the world in recent years. read more

Columbus Crew lose first match under coach Gregg Berhalter fall to Toronto

Columbus Crew forward Jairo Arrieta (middle) shoots the ball during a game against the Philadelphia Union March 22 at Crew Stadium. The Crew won, 2-1.Courtesy of MCTThe best start to a season in franchise history has come to a halt for the Columbus Crew.After a strong start to its 2014 campaign, the Crew (3-1-0) suffered its first defeat of the year Saturday, falling 2-0 to Toronto FC (3-1-0) at Crew Stadium.U.S. Men’s National Team star and Toronto FC midfielder Michael Bradley scored in the 11th minute, his first Major League Soccer goal in nine years after playing in the Netherlands, Germany, England and Italy.Crew coach Gregg Berhalter said after the match that a poor performance during the first 20 minutes led to his team’s downfall.“We had a horrendous start to the game. It was sloppy in every sense of the word,” Berhalter said. “To me, it’s something where we got complacent and that’s the worst thing a team like us can do because we need to keep fighting. We need to keep pushing and we’re not there yet.”Crew midfielder Hector Jimenez had a similar impression of the team’s level of play early.“Those first 20 minutes were crucial, giving up that early goal, and it was hard for us to come back from that,” Jimenez said.Defender Josh Williams said the team tried to play wide, but couldn’t get the right delivery of the ball into the box.“It was just poor service. I think that played right into them,” Williams said. “They’ve got some big guys in the middle, you know, I think they kind of let us play out wide and cross the balls in and those guys were waiting for us.”Berhalter said the team’s failure to capitalize on its few chances was its downfall.“A couple chances, a couple cross bars, a couple things that hit the post and it didn’t work out,” Berhalter said. “But I attribute this loss to two things: Bad start to the game and a very well organized Toronto FC.”Toronto midfielder Issey Nakajima-Farran added a second goal in the 85th minute, triggering some Crew fans’ exit to the aisles as a tight 1-0 deficit suddenly doubled and extinguished any hopes for a comeback.Columbus had been riding a three-game winning streak before Saturday’s loss. The team’s home opener win over Philadelphia — bookended by road wins over D.C. United and Seattle — made for a perfect March.Williams said the drama and emotion of winning in Seattle March 29 on a 94th minute goal by Columbus’ Justin Meram could have played a role in the complacency against Toronto and that the players take responsibility for the loss.“You know, Gregg is going to take the blame. He already came in here and tried to take it but the players know, that’s just a good coach, him being him,” Williams said. “Practice felt a little lackadaisical this week, for whatever reason, I don’t know. Maybe it was just the high of Seattle. But it definitely wasn’t Gregg’s fault, and as players, we take responsibility for that … this week we’ve got to come out and train harder, prepare harder.”The Crew has a long week to shake off the loss, as the team is slated to travel to San Jose, Calif., to take on the winless San Jose Earthquakes Sunday at 3 p.m. The Black and Gold are set to return to Crew Stadium April 19 against D.C. United, and kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. read more

NAMs Call for Prioritization of Social Services Youth Empowerment

first_imgBy: Kebba AF TourayNational Assembly Members have expressed their resolve on the need to prioritize the country’s social services and youth empowerment in the budget estimates, as they are key pillars in the development of the country. The honourable members made these and other assertions during yesterday’s debate on the 2018 budget estimate.Hon. Ousman Sillah, member for Banjul North, called on the Finance Minister to prioritize health, agriculture and youth empowerment during budget estimation. He said Government should ensure the implementation of the Abuja Declaration, which advocates for 15% of the local Fund to be allocated to the health sector; that this is important considering the current conditions of the country’s health sector which is faced with serious challenges, key among them, inadequate medical staff, supplies and equipment among others. He cited that without these, the attainment of quality and accessible health care services will be mission impossible.He called on Government to work towards the implementation of its commitment to the Maputu Declaration, where they are committed to allocate 10 percent of the national economy to agriculture to boost the sector, because it is the mainstay of the country’s economy. On youth empowerment, Hon. Sillah urged Government to invest more in the youth and create opportunities for them, to help curb irregular migration, unemployment and the crime rate. He called for the adjustment in the budget allocation to the Fisheries department, which he said has the potential of creating job for the youth, supplement the nutritional intake of the populace and boost the economy.On celebrations, he pointed out that at this crucial moment of the country, there is no need for celebrations but to make savings.Hon. Saikou Marong, Member for Latrikunda Sabiji, said the health sector is faced with daunting challenges that need urgent intervention; that this should be reflected in the estimates by allocating a befitting budget to the sector; that in 2013, the maternal and mortality rate was 33 per 10,000; neonatal mortality 21 per 1000; 34 per 1000 in infant mortality and in health delivery system the number of nurses is 3.2 nurses per 10,000. He called on the Finance Minister to prioritize the health sector during the budget allocation to make these and other scary scenarios facing the health sector a thing of the past.On the Ministry of Youth and Sport, he urged that the sector be fully catered for because it is charged with improving the welfare of young people who are the future leaders and cream of the society. “This is a new Gambia and the ideas of a new Gambia must be reflected in the budget. The youth need to be catered for”, he said. He called on the Ministry of Trade to also prioritize youth in their action plans and provide job opportunities for them. On celebrations, Hon. Marong argued that the National Independence of the country is worth celebrating, but slams other celebrations saying ‘‘we don’t need them,” considering the terrible economy that the country has at the moment.Hon. Bakary Camara, member for Central Badibou, lauded the Finance Minister for the additional D73 million estimate, to be allocated to the health sector; that this will go a long way in addressing the problems facing the health sectorHe spoke of the need to address the problem of lack of skills and education in youth, without which the provision of youth employment will be a waste; that skills and education of youth are prerequisites in the effective implementation of the job.The member for Sami Alfusainey Ceesay, said this government inherited bad governance but they are doing what they can to see that all sectors are considered; that the Gambian people are just eager to see rapid changes and said that Rome was not built in a day; thus the need for them to take things easy.He commended Government for increasing the transport allowances for civil servants describing this as a great stride but raised concern over teachers in the provinces. According to him, teachers in the provinces are not entitled to transport allowance and therefore questioned the package Government has in place for them.On Agriculture, Hon. Ceesay said people always concentrate on crop production and neglect animal husbandry which is also part of agriculture; that if crop production fails, they can sell their animals to gain income. He stressed the need for them to consider animal husbandry under agriculture.On Youth and Sports, he said more needs to be allocated to this sector in order to build more skill centers which will help the youth to be engaged in something meaningful.The member for Jimara, Alagie H. Sowe, frowned on the budget allocated for the Foreign Affairs Ministry, noting that it is too much and should be cut and transferred to the Ministry of Youth and Sport and Communications respectively.Sainey Touray, National Assembly Member for Jarra East, said the office of the First Lady which is included in the draft estimates is not constitutional and should not be included in the budget; that as law makers they should be doing the right thing.The member for Wuli West Sedia Jatta, told the finance Minister that they are going to deal with the document seriously and called on him to help them to get rid of the unnecessary estimates and put them where it is necessary; that many people are lying sick in this country and cannot be cured in the country because there is no money to take them somewhere else; that if a member of parliament has a serious accident, they rush him to India or if a minister falls sick, they rush him to the US. He described this as unfair, unsafe and incorrect. “But the time has come when this country must have a hospital where if you cannot be cured, you cannot be cured anywhere else. This is the country where you must do it and can do it,” he assured.The Wuli West NAM said Gambia has been re-born and they belong to a new Gambia; that they are tired and everything must change. He described Agriculture, health and education as important towards the development of the country describing them as the economic drivers; that when they revised last year’s budget, it was indicated that it has a deficit of 4 billion as there was no budget support and because they were able to have budget support, it was bit down to D950million; that this year also when the budget estimates were being formulated, considerate amount was made of budget support and grant; that no nation including the Gambia, can ever develop with loans and grants; that The Gambia can develop itself with the resources available at its disposal without seeking for help outside. Hon. Jatta said The Gambia is moving towards the direction of becoming a model for the world; that The Gambia must primarily be dependent on itself for survival and anything else should be secondary. While thanking the Minister for the changes they did to the budget, he said they want to add their input so that together they can create a Gambian nation which will also be giving out to others as they cannot just be receiving without giving out, noting that this is how relationships work.The Members for Kiang West, tumana, Upper Nuimi, Illiassa, Nianija and Nominated Member Kumba Jatta all added their voice to the debate.NAMs called on the Minister to invest more in youth development for the betterment of the country. NAMS also frowned against the ‘many celebrations’ in the country excluding Independence Day, which they described as unnecessary expenditures and should be cut down.last_img read more

Dont compare to 1992 Former Pakistan skipper makes huge statement after embarrassing

first_imgIt was an embarrassing performance by Pakistan in their first match of the World Cup as they were bundled out by West Indies for a paltry 105. The Pakistan batting order was absolutely blown away by some hostile pace bowling as they were never in tune with the aggressive short-pitched stuff doled out by the Windies bowler.Former Pakistan skipper Waqar Younis believes that it would be really foolish to write the side off after just the one defeat. However, he was quick to add that comparing this to 1992 campaign should not enter any part of the discussion. Pakistan team were walloped by West IndiesReuters”You have to remember that this World Cup is a very long tournament. There is a lot of cricket still to be played and it would be foolish to write off this Pakistan side after their defeat to the West Indies,” wrote Waqar in a column for the ICC.’Have to give credit to West Indies'”You have to give credit to the West Indies for the way they used the short ball to pepper the Pakistani batsmen,” he further added.Speaking about the 1992 World Cup, Waqar said that even that side lef by Imran Khan lost their first match heavily, but then bounced back to clinch the title. He, however, cautioned the side to dwell too much in the past as 27 years is a long time to base comparisons on.”A defeat like that damages the confidence and we need to make sure that we take our time to try and bounce back, think positive and turn the ship around,” Waqar wrote. All-rounder Jofra ArcherIANSPakistan will now face hosts England and will enter the game as overwhelming favourites. They handed Pakistan a series defeat as they walloped them 4-0 in an ODI series just before the World Cup.However, the former captain did not want the side to lose hope and become disheartened after the defeat.”Mohammad Amir was probably the big positive from the day. He picked up a couple of wickets which will be good for his confidence. As a guy who was originally left out of the squad and then brought back in, it is important that he feels good about himself,” Waqar said, speaking about the positives from the game.Waqar also cautioned the Pakistan batting order and believed after their sloppy display against West Indies, England pace sensation Jofra Archer would be licking his lips to dismantle them when they next meet.last_img read more

Directive issued for management of NPLs

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouA DIRECTIVE to all financial institutions licensed to operate in Cyprus for the management of non-performing loans has been issued by the Central Bank.The directive, entitled ‘Directive on Arrears Management of 2013’, details actions required of financial institutions with the aim of maximising the effectiveness of their debt-restructuring procedures.Financial institutions are instructed to develop a strategy (the ‘Arrears Management Strategy’ or AMS) for managing high-risk and non-performing loans through restructuring, and offers guidelines for the batching of various similar cases to facilitate efficiency, as well as tools to be used in implementing and monitoring the effectiveness of the strategy.Further action required of financial institutions includes developing a procedure for borrowers’ appeals to an independent Appeals Committee to be established by each institution.The directive also warns institutions against failure to comply with reporting requirements and inefficient ‘arrears management performance’. These could be met with Central Bank-imposed sanctions, which “may include, inter alia, restrictions on bonuses.”Several out-of-court debt restructuring options are described in the directive, differentiating between short-term and long-term solutions. Financial institutions are directed to consider restructuring options with borrowers’ financial position and prospects in mind.A “code of conduct on the handling of borrowers in financial difficulties” was also issued by the Central Bank, attached to the directive as an appendix.The guiding principles of the code stress the need for collaborative efforts by both financial institutions and borrowers to reach agreement by means of two-way communication, transparency in providing financial and other information, and consideration of options in good faith.Further, the code distinguishes between cooperative and uncooperative borrowers, penalising any instances where the debtor refuses or neglects to collaborate.A borrower may be classified as uncooperative if either he or she fails to disclose material financial information pertaining to his or her repayment ability, regardless of whether such disclosure has been requested by the institution, or where the institution has notified the borrower of payment in arrears and 90 days have elapsed without response or settlement.If a borrower has been classified as ‘uncooperative’, the lender may then initiate legal proceedings, but not without notifying the borrower of such action and providing them with a final chance to cooperate in finding a mutually agreed-upon solution, within a reasonable timeframe.In a joint statement following a meeting, the borrowers’ and banks’ associations announced that no repossession procedures are expected until 2018.Borrowers’ association head Costas Melas clarified that this was not an agreement between the parties but rather a calculation of the timeframe that will be required at a minimum for legislation to pass through Parliament, and subsequently for final court decisions in the first repossession cases to be made.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
