Top lawyer: US has a strong case against E&Y

first_img Share Top lawyer: US has a strong case against E&Y Show Comments ▼ whatsapp A FORMER New York state attorney has said the lawsuit filed against Ernst & Young (E&Y) for allegedly assisting Lehman Brothers’ financial fraud is likely to be based on strong evidence and have a high chance of success.Attorney general Andrew Cuomo’s office “will have made sure they have a slam dunk for a settlement at the very least,” lawyer and former state prosecutor Stuart Meissner told City A.M. last night.US lawyers have“typically got significant email correspondence to back up the attorney general’s case,” Meissner said, largely as it has only limited resources and attorneys at its disposal so must be highly selective about the cases it pursues.Ernst & Young faces a civil complaint of misleading investors about Lehmans’ financial health, by filing clean audits despite being aware that the bank was using an accounting loophole, Repo 105, to remove billions of dollars of risky assets from its balance sheet at the end of each quarter.Ernst & Young has rebuffed the complaint, issuing a statement today saying it would “vigorously defend itself against the civil claims alleged”.“There is no factual or legal basis for a claim to be brought against an auditor where the accounting for the underlying transaction is in accordance with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles,” it said. Meissner said the case may also have implications for other auditors of banks that subsequently failed or received bailouts. “It is certainly a shot across the bows of any large public auditing firm auditing financial services firms,” he said, as it showed they could be prosecuted not just by civil litigants, but by the attorney general.

Despite the stock’s very strong run through 2010, we believe there is more to come,” said Investec analyst Andrew Wilson. Weir profit soars on international growth last_img read more

RNIB’s I am Here campaign to raise funds for sight loss advice

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) today launches an integrated campaign to help raise funds to enable them to provide advice to people across the UK who are facing sight loss.The charity is concerned that people who are starting to lose their sight do not always get the emotional and practical support they need. It has found that 47% of all eye hospitals in the UK do not offer any patient support to people who are going blind. As a result, nearly 23% leave the hospital not knowing what eye condition they have.The I am here campaign, the strategy and creative execution for which was developed by The Good Agency, aims to raise awareness of the importance of providing early emotional and practical support through sight loss advisers. It includes a call for the public to sign the RNIB’s petition for every eye clinic to have access to a sight loss adviser by 2019, and for the NHS and other funders to defend the posts of existing sight loss advisers.Integrated campaign launches todayThe campaign includes online, print, press, outdoor, TV, radio and direct mail. The Good Agency has assisted with strategic advice and creative execution.Chris Norman, Strategy Director, The Good Agency commented:“RNIB provides an incredibly important service to people in the UK and the need for this is going to gather greater value than ever before. We enjoyed helping them shout about the vital work they do, increasing their income and crucially, helping even more blind and partially sighted people get the support they need.” Advertisement  64 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 15 April 2014 | News  63 total views,  1 views todaycenter_img Tagged with: Advertising Consulting & Agencies Individual giving RNIB’s I am Here campaign to raise funds for sight loss advice About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Crisis climática un problema de la clase obrera, ¡y la clase obrera tiene el poder de detenerla!

first_imgEsta declaración fue distribuida en acciones de huelga climática por la Red Internacional de Solidaridad con los Trabajadores.Todos estamos enojados. Todos en estas acciones en todo el mundo sabemos que nuestro futuro depende de enfrentar el cambio climático. La conversación que importa ahora es: ¿Quién es responsable de ello y quién puede solucionarlo?Aquí y en el extranjero, el impacto recae desproporcionadamente en los más oprimidos: comunidades de color, especialmente pueblos indígenas, personas con discapacidades, mujeres y oprimidos por género, la comunidad LGBTQ2S + y los jóvenes. La mayoría de nosotros somos trabajadores, incluidos jóvenes y estudiantes. Los patrones climáticos salvajes y los desastres no naturales nos dejan su mayor huella.¿Puede el capitalismo solucionar los problemas que crea?Algunos en el movimiento climático simplemente culpan a la “actividad humana” sin ponerla directamente en el gran petróleo, el gran carbón, la industria automotriz, las empresas de servicios públicos y los bancos de los que toman prestados o el mayor contaminador del mundo, el Pentágono.Y algunos incluso sugerirían que apelar al motivo de las ganancias (convencer a los capitalistas de que abandonar los combustibles fósiles es bueno para los negocios o someterlos a “precios climáticos”) puede resolver la crisis. Ese es un pensamiento ingenuo. Los capitalistas causaron el calentamiento global y difícilmente se puede confiar en revertirlo. Calculan la ganancia económica a corto plazo sin tener en cuenta la enorme huella de carbono que están dejando sus acciones de toma de ganancias. Solo ellos tienen los medios para escapar de las consecuencias.Solidaridad de la clase trabajadora para salvar el medio ambienteLos activistas ambientales, en su mayoría jóvenes, hicieron un llamado para “huelgas climáticas” el 20 y 27 de septiembre. Este es un verdadero paso adelante. Las huelgas han ganado salarios más altos, pensiones, reconocimiento sindical y similares. Pero también hay huelgas políticas, como el Primero de Mayo de 2006, cuando millones de inmigrantes y sus partidarios forzaron la derrota de un proyecto de ley antiinmigrante en el Congreso.Mantengamos viva la conversación sobre la huelga climática más allá del 20 al 27 de septiembre, no solo en las escuelas sino también en el trabajo, en los sindicatos, en nuestras comunidades. Y debemos luchar contra el racismo ambiental, defender los reclamos de tierras indígenas y exigir la autodeterminación para las naciones oprimidas que sufren los impactos más graves.La crisis climática es un problema de la clase trabajadora. Nosotros entendemos esto. Es por eso que varias organizaciones laborales de la ciudad de Nueva York están instando a los miembros del sindicato a apoyar las huelgas climática. Es por eso que los trabajadores de Amazon están saliendo para protestar por la forma en que la compañía ha contribuido a la crisis climática.Tenemos el poder de proteger la vida en el planeta. ¡Nada se mueve sin nosotros! Y las acciones de masas son las que traen un cambio real.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

47 journalists, media workers killed in first half of 2018, RSF says

first_img Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 JAMES LAWLER DUGGAN / AFP June 3, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Middle East – North Africa June 9, 2021 Find out more RSF_en AfghanistanSyriaYemenMexicoMiddle East – North Africa Europe – Central AsiaAmericasAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesReports and statisticsProtecting journalists WomenArmed conflictsExiled mediaImpunityPredatorsViolenceFreedom of expression Help by sharing this information The breakdown of figures for the first half of 2018 is 36 professional journalists, nine citizen-journalists and two media workers killed worldwide. The deadliest countries are Afghanistan with 11 journalists killed, Syria with seven, Yemen with five, and Mexico with five.RSF is responding to these alarming figures by stepping up its assistance to journalists in distress. Almost 40 percent of RSF grants have been used to help journalists in danger to relocate to a safer place. The four deadliest countries — Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen and Mexico — have received a third of RSF’s worldwide budget for assisting journalists in distress.Afghan journalists especially vulnerableRanked 118th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, Afghanistan has seen several suicide bombings since the start of the year, which have been responsible for most of the 11 media fatalities. Many other journalists are being constantly threatened by the different parties to the Afghan conflict. Those targeted include women journalists, who are particularly vulnerable in a country where fundamentalist propaganda is enforced in several regions.Since helping to create the Centre for the Protection of Afghan Women Journalists (CPAWJ) in March 2017, RSF has continued to provide assistance to the centre. This unique NGO’s mission is to support and protect women journalists. Thanks in part to RSF’s financial and moral support, the centre managed to conduct the first-ever survey of women in the Afghan media, establishing that the country has 1,761 women media workers, including 764 professional journalists.RSF and the CPAWJ have jointly provided women journalists with physical safety training and have called on the Afghan government and parliament to provide them with greater protection, especially in the more remote provinces. They have also called for the drafting of a charter for the protection of women journalists within news organizations.Fleeing warViolence continues to take its toll on the few journalists still working in Syria (ranked 177th in the Index) and Yemen (167th). One professional journalist, five citizen-journalists and one media worker have been killed in artillery bombardments and air strikes in Syria since the start of the year. The toll in Yemen has been three professional journalists and five citizen-journalists killed.In these two countries, which are news and information black holes, many journalists have had no choice but to either stop working or flee abroad to escape the threats to which they are exposed. RSF provides those who flee with specific assistance designed to help them reach a safe refuge or to cover their most urgent needs after they have fled.These Syrian and Yemeni journalists have received 20 percent of RSF’s overall assistance funding in 2018 and more than three quarters of its funding for the Middle East and North Africa region. In total, 15 Syrian and Yemeni journalists have received grants since the start of the year. Six of them found a safe refuge in another country, seven were given funds to cover their most urgent needs in exile, and RSF helped the other two pay their medical fees.RSF beneficiaries have included Syrian journalist Ahmed Abdelqader, the founder and editor of the newspaper Ain Ala al-Watan (“Eye on the Homeland”), who sustained gunshot injuries to the jaw, and lost his hearing in his left ear when he was the target of a shooting attack claimed by the Islamic State in the city of Urfa, in southeastern Turkey, on 12 June 2016. RSF paid for his hospital fees and, when the threats continued, helped him find a refuge in Istanbul while he waited for his asylum application to be processed. Thanks to RSF’s support, he has been living in France since October 2016.Fleeing threatsOn the other side of the world, Mexico (ranked 147th in the Index) is the Western hemisphere’s most dangerous country for journalists, with five brutally murdered since the start of the year and 14 others threatened with murder.Alberto Escorcia has received many threats as a result of his investigative reporting on online trolls who target journalists in Mexico. RSF helped him to find a safe refuge abroad. RSF also provides this kind of direct assistance in other Latin American countries to journalists and sometimes their families seeking to flee threats.Of the total of 10 grants awarded in Latin America during the first six months of 2018, half covered the costs of relocating five journalists (two Brazilians, a Mexican, a Honduran and a Colombian) and one went to help the family of Nicaraguan journalist Angel Eduardo, who sustained a fatal gunshot wound to the head while covering a protest on Facebook Live.

They sought for reckoning their services as Additional District and Sessions Judges in Fast Track court for determining the seniority as District Judge.The SC noted that the issue was settled against the petitioners in various precedents such as  :Debabrata Dash and Another v. Jatindra Prasad Das and Others 6 (2013) 3 SCC 658V. Venkata Prasad and Others v. High Court of A.P. and Others (2016) 11 SCC 656Kum C. Yamini v.

The corollary of the above rule is that where the initial appointment is only ad hoc and not according to rules and made as a stopgap arrangement, the officiation in such post cannot be taken into account for considering the seniority”It was further held in these precedents that :”No right will be conferred on judicial officers in service for claiming any regular promotion on the basis of his/her appointment on ad hoc basis under the Scheme.The service rendered in the Fast Track Courts will be deemed as service rendered in the parent cadre”.The SC held that these precedents conclude the case of the petitioners.”As has been held in said decisions, the reckonable date has to be the date when substantive appointment is made and not from the date of the initial ad-hoc appointment or  promotion”.Thus, the Court answered the issue in the negative.[District Judges] Inter-Se Seniority Among Candidates Who Pass ‘Limited Competitive Exam’ Must Be Based On Merit In LCE & Not Previous Seniority :SC While dealing with another issue in the case, the Court held that in the seniority list of District Judges, the inter-se seniority between candidates who passed the ‘Limited Competitive Examination (LCE)’ must be determined on the basis of their merit in the examination, and not on the basis of their seniority in the erstwhile cadre.Holding thus, the SC interfered with the seniority list to give proper placement for LCE candidates.Case Details Title : Dinesh Kumar Gupta vs High Court of Judicature of Rajasthan Case No : Writ Petition (C) No. 936/2018 Bench : JJ U U Lalit & Vineet SaranClick here to download judgmentRead JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
