Israels release of Palestinian political prisoners could boost peace prospects – Ban

When Mr. Ban visited the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel a year ago, he had expressed concerns about the Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli detention facilities, and publicly urged Israel to release prisoners as called for by the Palestinian Authority. “Such a release would serve as a significant confidence-building measure,” he stated today in a message to the United Nations International Meeting on the Question of Palestine that opened in Vienna, adding the world body will continue to raise the issue with the Israeli leadership.Nearly 100 representatives of Governments, parliaments, intergovernmental organizations, lawyers, civil society and UN agencies are taking part in the two-day meeting, whose theme is “The urgency of addressing the plight of Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons and detention facilities.”In his message – which was delivered by Maxwell Gaylard, Deputy UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process and UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territory – Mr. Ban said the UN continues to follow closely the well-being of those in detention, including some 200 minors and 200 individuals held in administrative detention without trial. He also noted with concern that elected Palestinian representatives have been detained by Israel, and that even after their release, three from East Jerusalem are under threat of forcible transfer and are residing at the Red Cross premises, while another has been deported to Ramallah. “The United Nations opposes measures of forcible transfer and remains engaged on this issue, which has broader implications for the human rights of Palestinian East Jerusalemites,” he stated.The Secretary-General also reiterated the calls of the UN for humanitarian access to be granted to Israeli Staff Sergeant Gilat Shalit, who has been held captive by Palestinian militants for over four years, and for his release.“Momentous changes are sweeping the region, and it is deeply frustrating that efforts to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace remain at an impasse,” the Secretary-General said, adding that among the main obstacles are settlements, which are illegal and contrary to the Road Map peace plan that seeks to establish a two-State solution of Israel and Palestine living side by side in peace and security within recognized borders.“It remains Israel’s obligation to freeze settlement activity,” he said, calling on the international community to intensify efforts to help the parties overcome the current obstacles and achieve a comprehensive, just and lasting peace. 7 March 2011Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today called for urgently addressing the plight of the thousands of Palestinian political prisoners detained by Israel, saying it is an important issue in the search for a just and lasting peace between the two sides. read more

Ontario Securities Commission accepts 11 million Home Capital settlement

TORONTO — Ontario’s securities watchdog has approved a settlement with Home Capital Group Inc. and three former executives who have agreed they failed to tell investors quickly and completely about fraudulent activity by some mortgage brokers associated with the alternative lender.As a result of the settlement, about $11 million could flow through the Ontario Securities Commission to shareholders covered by a related class action suit that’s awaiting court approval.The OSC settlement is conditional on the Ontario Superior Court accepting a settlement worth about $29.5 million including the money collected through the OSC process.An OSC lawyer told a hearing in Toronto that the commission needed to send a clear message that public companies are legally obligated to disclose important information within required time frames and in a form reasonable investors could use.The OSC’s announcement of its allegations in March contributed to a sudden exodus of Home Capital depositors in April that pushed the Toronto-based company to borrow about $2 billion at crushingly high interest rates in order to stay in business.Home Capital shares (TSX:HCG) and prospects have improved since famed billionaire investor Warren Buffett agreed to support the lender through an equity investment and loans by Berkshire Hathaway, his main company. read more

South Korea culls pigs after confirming African swine fever

SEOUL, Korea, Republic Of — South Korea is culling thousands of pigs after confirming African swine fever at a farm near its border with North Korea, which had an outbreak in May.South Korea’s agriculture ministry said the country’s first case of the highly contagious disease was confirmed Tuesday in tests on five pigs that died at the farm in the city of Paju.The government has vowed stern quarantine measures to prevent the spread of the disease, which threatens a massive industry that involves 6,000 farms raising more than 11 million pigs.African swine fever has decimated pig herds in China and other Asian countries before reaching the Koreas. It is harmless to people but for pigs is highly contagious and fatal. There is no known cure.The Associated Press read more

Environmental assessment OK for proposed Woodfibre LNG project in BC

Environmental assessment OK for proposed Woodfibre LNG project in B.C. OTTAWA – The federal government says an environmental assessment has determined that a proposed liquefied natural gas project near Squamish, B.C., is unlikely to cause significant adverse effects.Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says the Woodfibre LNG Project underwent a thorough, science-based assessment and that her decision was based on indigenous traditional knowledge and public feedback.McKenna says British Columbia conducted the environmental assessment on behalf of both the federal and provincial governments, with participation from various federal authorities including Fisheries and Oceans Canada.McKenna says an analysis of anticipated greenhouse gas emissions associated with the project was part of the review and the federal government conducted additional consultations with the public and indigenous groups.The environment minister says Woodfibre must abide by legally binding conditions, including mitigation measures and follow-up requirements for the life of the project.The next steps are for the proponent to obtain approvals and permits, including regulatory authorizations from the Fisheries Department and Transport Canada. by The Canadian Press Posted Mar 18, 2016 5:28 pm MDT Last Updated Mar 18, 2016 at 6:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Khuram Butt Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba named Everything we know about

first_imgA neighbour Erica Gasparri said she had also contacted police after Butt tried to ‘brainwash’ her children in the local park and convert them to Islam.Butt, who was married with two children, had also been ejected from a nearby mosque after a confrontation with an imam.Butt was a football supporter, a kickboxer and a regular at a local gym – the Ummah Fitness Centre – which caters predominantly for Muslims.Channel 4 said yesterday that police had contacted them about the documentary and requested the broadcaster not to comment. Rachid Redouane, was a Moroccan-Libyan pastry chef who had until recently been living in Dublin. While the third attacker was named on Tuesday as Youssef Zaghba, a 22-year-old Moroccan who had been arrested in Italy just a year ago on his way to Syria, but still someohow managed to get into Britain.All three were shot dead by armed police in the Borough Market area of south London, eight minutes after launching the attack. Here is everything we know about them.Khuram ButtThe ringleader of the London Bridge massacre never bothered to hide his violent, extremist views.Khuram Butt was so brazen that he openly posed with the black flag of the so-called Islamic State in Regent’s Park in the centre of London for a Channel 4 documentary, entitled The Jihadis Next Door. Abu Zeitoun, born as Khuram Butt, after being shot and killed by police at Borough London Abu Zeitoun, born as Khuram Butt, after being shot and killed by police at Borough LondonCredit:GABRIELE SCIOTTO Butt and other extremists linked to the banned terror group al-Muhajiroun were even detained by police for an hour over the stunt in 2015 but were released without being arrested. Rachid Redouane Abu Haleema An Irish ID card was found on his body after he was shot dead by armed police in Borough Market, Southwark. The plastic credit card-sized document is believed to have been issued by the Garda National Immigration Bureau and is given to people from outside the EU.The card has a person’s certificate of registration which states they have permission to stay in Ireland. It must be carried at all times.Redouane married his 38-year-old wife in Ireland in 2012 and they later moved to the UK. His wife never converted to her husband’s faith, and they had recently split up, the Guardian reported. A friend said they had clashed over how to raise their daughter.On social media Redouane’s wife, whose maiden name was O’Leary, had recently described herself as single and at one point complained that her daughter’s father was not seeing his child.Redouane had been living in the Rathmines area in the south of Dublin while in Ireland, according to Irish police sources, and had spent time there as recently as three months ago.Enda Kenny, the Taoiseach, said while on a trade mission to Chicago that the dead terrorist is not believed to have been under surveillance by Irish police. “The police turned up and Anjem, Khuram Butt and two other men were escorted away towards Millbank and I stayed in College Green. I am not surprised that Khuram Butt carried out the terrorist attack and there are serious questions for the authorities.”Butt, who lived in a ground floor flat in east London, had also twice been reported to anti-terror police by friends and neighbours concerned about his extremist views.A former friend claimed Butt, who is understood to have worked for a fried chicken chain and for London Underground as a trainee customer services assistant for six months until October, had been radicalised after watching videos on YouTube. The friend said he contacted the authorities after becoming concerned over Butt’s obvious extremist views. Abu ZeitounCredit: Channel 4  Youssef Zaghba Abu Haleema Khuram Butt fro mChannel 4 documentray The Jihadis Next Door He was there last year and after telling his mother he was going to Rome, bought a one way ticket to Istanbul.Carrying only a rucksack, he was stopped by Italian security services at the airport and was arrested on suspicion of trying to make his way to Syria. Another senior figure in the group was Siddhartha Dhar, who skipped bail while under investigation over his association with Choudary, and fled to Syria to fight with Islamic State. Dhar replaced Mohammed Emwazi, known as Jihadi John, as the terror group’s notorious executioner. Dhar also appeared in the Channel 4 film until he fled to Syria.The documentary concentrated on Shamsuddin and another preacher known as Abu Haleema. Choudary, Dhar, Shamsuddin and Abu Haleema were arrested together in September 2014.Shamsuddin, 40, admitted in the documentary he had been radicalised by Bakri, a Syrian born extremist who founded al-Muhajiroun, while at university.In the documentary, Abu Haleema and Shamsuddin are filmed laughing as they watch Islamic State execution videos. Haleema was shown calling for homosexuals to be thrown from tall buildings, alcohol to be outlawed and adulterers to be stoned to death on Haven Green near Ealing, in West London. Khuram Butt from Channel 4 documentray The Jihadis Next Door In The Jihadis Next Door, Butt appeared alongside Mohammad Shamsuddin, who appears to have become the de facto leader of the remnants of al-Muhajiroun following the jailing of its founder Omar Bakri Muhammad, who is languishing in a Lebanese prison, and Choudary, who is serving a five-and-half-year sentence for terror offences in the UK.An authoritative analysis of all Islamist terrorism offences and attacks in the UK between 1998 and 2015 shows 25 per cent have been committed by perpetrators with links to al-Muhajiroun and its various incarnations.Those plots include the murder of Lee Rigby, committed by Muslim converts Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, who had been radicalised by Choudary as early as 2007. Police have confirmed the identities of the three jihadis that killed seven people in a terrorist attack on London Bridge last week.Khuram Butt, 27, of east London, is believed to have led the trio of terrorists who ploughed into pedestrians using a hired van, before stabbing revellers in pubs and bars on Saturday night.  The documentary, filmed over two years by director Jamie Roberts, also showed Shamsuddin calling for David Cameron to be arrested under Sharia law.“The Sharia is coming to the UK – this black flag you see here one day is gonna be on 10 Downing Street,” he said.He later told the filmmakers: “Our message is deadly, we are calling for world domination, and for Sharia for the UK.”center_img One neighbour told the Telegraph he had even stood next to the terrorist in a lift as he went up to his wife’s apartment.The man, who wished to remain anonymous, and who lives in the same apartment block as Redouane’s wife, said: “I was standing right next to him in that lift”.“I’ve seen him four or five times, he’s come here often to see his daughter. He didn’t say a word, we just stood there silently until we got to his floor.“It was only the next day when my mate told me about the attacks that I realised it was him. It’s scary you know. I don’t like the fact that my kids were living in the same block as this guy. He was there at 7pm.” “In this case these facts are being checked, but my understanding is that this individual was not a member of that small group.”The Irish police are reportedly watching up to 12 foreign nationals, mainly of north African origin, over suspected links to extremist groups.Garda are understood to be piecing together Redouane’s movements in the country over recent years and whether he was radicalised in the country.As details of Redouane’s Irish links were disclosed, a Muslim imam and scholar based in the country said Irish authorities had repeatedly ignored his warnings about local activists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (Isil) group and al-Qaida activists.Shaykh Dr Umar al-Qadri said neither the police nor the  justice department contacted him after he warned there was an Islamist extremist presence in Dublin.Youssef ZaghbaThe 22-year-old, who was born in the city of Fez in January 1995, had a Moroccan father and an Italian mother.He was reportedly arrested at Bologna airport in March 2016 trying to get to Syria and was also understood to be on an Italian anti-terror watch list.Youseff, had recently moved to east London and was working in a restaurant. According to reports in the Italian press, Zaghba, grew up with his parents in Morocco until they split when he was a child.

He said: “There are a small number of people in Ireland who are being monitored and observed in respect of radicalisation and matters relevant to that. He then regularly stayed with his father but regularly visited his Italian mother at her home just outside the northern city of Bologna. Rachid Redouane Butt reportedly arrived in the UK from Pakistan as a child refugee. His father is said to have worked at a fruit and vegetable stall in east London, but died in 2003, when Butt would have been a teenager. One witness claimed to have seen Butt in the streets around Borough Market a week before Saturday’s attack, while reports on Monday night suggested the three men had done a “dry run” in the minutes before they targeted pedestrians on London Bridge. Their van was caught on CCTV travelling across the bridge nine minutes before the attack, reportedly allowing the terrorists to check the amount of traffic, the number of potential victims and whether there were any police around.  Mohammed Shamsuddin Haleema and Shamsuddin were also arrested in August 2015 during anti-terror raids, but no further action was taken. Rachid RedouaneA Moroccan chef who took part in the London terrorist attack is believed to have visited his estranged wife hours before the attack so he could say goodbye to their daughter.Rachid Redouane was seen visiting his wife, Charisse, only three hours before he and two accomplices killed seven by ramming crowds with a van and then launching a knife rampage, neighbours said. Abu Zeitoun Mohammed Shamsuddin Youssef Zaghba Large numbers of police then arrived at the block of flats on Sunday after the attack.Another couple living in the same block, just a few hundred yards from where another attacker, Khuram Butt lived, also told the Telegraph that Redouane had visited on Saturday evening.The couple, who were aged in their 20s and wished to remain anonymous, said that the man had then left the apartment block and had signed out at reception.The man said: “The whole block is talking about it, about he came to say goodbye to her and his daughter before they left.“The police came yesterday morning, there were dozens of them. We know he signed out at reception because guests visiting have to.“He was here just before it all happened.”Redouane and his wife are reported to have split up over their differing views on religion, after they clashed over the best way to raise their child.Redouane is listed on his daughter’s birth certificate as Moroccan and gives his profession as pastry chef. However police said he also claimed to be Libyan and has in the past used the name Rachid Elkhdar, claiming to be six years younger.Redouane was not known to the security services, according to a police statement. Italian police seized his mobile phone and found a large amount of religious content, but nothing that necessarily suggested an interest in jihad.But it has also emerged that he had been placed on an Italian watchlist for potential terrorists after his behaviour raised concern with the intelligence services.A spokesman for Scotland Yard said Zaghba was not known to the police or MI5, unlike Butt, who had been the subject of a lengthy investigation because of his radical views and behaviour. It emerged on Monday that Butt had “verbally assaulted” an anti-terrorism campaigner at a rally in parliament led by the notorious hate preacher Anjem Choudary the day after the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby in May 2013.Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, which promotes Islamic tolerance, said: “Khuram Butt called me a ‘Murtad’, which means traitor in Arabic, and accused me of being a government stooge when I confronted Anjem Choudary about him supporting terrorism. Shamsuddin said that his views were “moulded” by Bakri – dubbed the Tottenham Ayatollah – who is now in jail in Lebanon for supporting terrorism. In the film, screened in January 2016, Butt appears on camera, intervening when police attempt to search one of the group’s leaders. Butt raises his voice, angrily asking them: “Why are you touching him?” In another clip, he requested a compass in order that he could pray towards Mecca.As a consequence, MI5 and counter-terrorism officers began an investigation into Butt, which remained ongoing even as the 27-year-old launched his terror attack on London Bridge. Butt, who was wearing an Arsenal shirt and a fake bomb strapped to his chest, was shot dead by police on Saturday night.Butt’s known links to al-Muhajiroun will raise serious concern that he wasn’t stopped prior to the atrocity. The group, which was banned shortly after the 7/7 bombings in 2005, and its successor organisations have been connected to a quarter of all Islamist terror offences and plots.last_img read more

Eurochem Usolskiy potash ramping up to full production in 2018

first_imgEuroChem Group AG, the leading global fertiliser company, has announced that the first production train of its Phase 1 development at Usolskiy, south of Berezniki in the Perm region, Russia, remains on track to start later this year. The Group expects to begin ramping up production at Usolskiy as part of a staggered commissioning schedule during 2018. Seven continuous mining machines are working underground and crews began operating in the deposit’s two potash layers in late October 2017.Once fully operational, Phase 1 will have a total annual production capacity of 2.3 Mt of muriate of potash (MOP), the most common potassium source used as a fertiliser in agriculture. Dmitry Strezhnev, EuroChem CEO, commented: “We are moving closer to our goal of Phase 1 potash production at Usolskiy, a significant landmark in our potash investment programme.”Construction work continues on the beneficiation complex at Usolskiy and its three main sections – Grinding and Flotation, Drying and Compaction, and Thickening. Several facilities, including the water supply, heating and ventilation systems are awaiting certification. Boilers and other heating systems are being commissioned in preparation of the upcoming winter.Clark Bailey, Head of the Group’s Mining Division, said: “We are currently on track to meet our combined production objectives for 2017/2018. To this end, our team is being trained on mining machines along with other equipment and processes and we are still recruiting additional employees. We will have about 2,000 people working at Usolskiy once Phase 1 is complete.”EuroChem-Usolskiy Potash is mining sections of the Verkhnekamskoe potash deposit, one of the largest in the world. As well as the Usolskiy Potash project, EuroChem holds a licence to develop the Gremyachinskoe deposit in the Volgograd region of Russia, known as the VolgaKaliy potash project, where first production of marketable product is expected in mid-2018. Underground development continues and the site entered the potash layer in early October, slightly ahead of schedule. Further exploratory drilling confirmed previous estimates and established the thickness of the sylvinite seam at around six meters. As of early November, the site had already lifted and stored in excess of 1,200 t of potash ore to the surface. Together, the Usolskiy and VolgaKaliy potash projects represent a combined total investment of about $7 billion to date.last_img read more

Kidnapped woman found 10 years after she disappeared thanks to Facebook

first_imgA WOMAN WHO was 15 when she disappeared 10 years ago in California told police that she was forced to marry her captor and they had a child together.She came forward to police after finding her sister on Facebook.The Santa Ana Police Department said Wednesday that they booked her captor, 41-year-old Isidro Garcia, on suspicion of kidnapping for rape, lewd acts with a minor and false imprisonment.Police say Garcia was dating her mother and lived with the family in 2004 when the girl was 15.Police say that Garcia drugged the girl and drove her to a house in Compton where he locked her in a garage. Garcia provided the victim with falsified identity documents and locked her overnight in a garage to prevent the victim from fleeing. Over the course of the following months and years, Garcia repeatedly told the victim her family had given up looking for her, and if she tried to go back to them, the family would be deported. The two moved on several occasions to avoid police detection.Authorities say he used physical and emotional abuse to prevent her from fleeing. The now-25-year-old woman says Garcia forced her into marriage in 2007 and they had a child in 2012.Read: Kidnapper releases little boy because he wouldn’t stop singing gospel music>last_img read more

Liverpool midfielder compares Jurgen Klopp to Van Gaal

first_imgGeorginio Wijnaldum has revealed Jurgen Klopp shares similarities with his former Netherlands head coach Louis Van Gaal.The Liverpool midfielder insists both managers are very demanding of their players and also make their players better.“He’s actually quite similar to Louis van Gaal,” Wijnaldum said of Klopp, as quoted by Liverpool Echo.“He also asks a lot from players. It’s not always easy for a player when a manager is that dominant and sees everything. But they only have one reason for it – to make you better. When you keep that in mind, you can deal with it. If you think ‘he always wants to say something about me’ then it can be hard. I always have the mindset that both those managers wanted to help me.”Speaking about competition for midfield places with new additions Naby Keita and  Fabinho, Wijnaldum said:Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“You have to embrace it and realise that’s how it has to be. If you look at our rivals, it’s no different. Manchester City have a massive squad with world class players sitting on the bench every week.”“If you want to play for a big club, you have to accept having that kind of competition. If a midfielder playing elsewhere has a great season, there’s a good chance that Liverpool will try to sign him. That’s just the way it is. There is no point worrying about who might come in and take your place, you just have to focus on your own job and doing the best you can every day.”“Every top club wants to keep progressing. It suits a club like Liverpool to have a big squad because it’s one of the biggest in Europe. If you look at the amount of games we’re playing, you can’t just have a squad of 18 players. You won’t make it to the finish fit and fresh.”“Keita and Fabinho are both quality players who are helping take the team forward and I’m happy they’re here. Having that competition keeps you concentrated. You can’t ever slacken off.”last_img read more

Poll 26 believe dependent contractor status will provide greater clarity

first_imgEmployee Benefits poll: More than a quarter (26%) of employer respondents believe the dependent contractor status proposed in the Taylor Review will bring greater clarity.A poll of www.employeebenefits.co.uk readers, which received 23 responses, found that 22% of respondents feel the new term will cause confusion.The Taylor review of modern working practices, published in July 2017, was commissioned by the government and led by Matthew Taylor (pictured), chief executive officer at the Royal Society of the Arts (RSA).The review set out to explore whether current working practices and policies are fit for purpose for today’s workforce. This includes the challenges posed by more casual working models, such as the gig economy, which has been the subject of several high-profile legal cases around employment status and employment rights like holiday pay and the minimum wage.The report recommends maintaining the three tier employment status system, which currently includes employees, workers, and self-employed individuals. However, it suggests a new definition for workers: dependent contractors. This term would aim to remove ambiguity around individuals who are not employees but who are entitled to workers’ rights, facilitating greater support for individuals who are not genuinely self-employed.The Taylor Review also proposes a greater focus on the principle of control when determining dependent contractor status, rather than focusing on whether there is a requirement to perform work personally.The straw poll of Employee Benefits readers found that 22% of respondents believe the dependent contractor status would increase costs for organisations, and 13% feel it would result in better benefits for gig economy workers.Read more:Taylor review proposes dependent contractor statusKate Hurn: Taylor Review advocates enhancing rights for dependent contractorsAmanda Steadman: How would the Taylor Review proposals affect employers?last_img read more

Photo: Sazid HossainGeneral HM Ershad-led Jatiya Party (JaPa) mayor candidate Mostafizar Rahman has won Rangpur City Corporation elections beating both Awami League and BNP candidates with a huge margin.He defeated ruling AL nominated candidate Sarfuddin Ahmed Jhantu by around 100,000 votes. Mostafizar running with plough symbol bagged 1,60,489 votes while Sarfuddin polled 62,400 votes and BNP candidate Kawsar Jahan Babla got 35,136 votes.Returning officer of the election Suvash Chandra Sarkar announced Mostafizur Rahman unofficially elected at 12:10am early Friday.The voting was held from 8:00am to 4:00pm without any break at 193 polling stations in the city corporation with the good turnout of voters.A total of 3,93,994 voters — 1,96,356 men and 1,97,638 women — were supposed to cast votes to elect one mayor, 33 ward councillors and 11 councillors to the reserved seats of women in the election.The Election Commission termed Rangpur City Corporation polls a ‘model election’ saying that it was held amid a festive mood.”The Rangpur City Corporation election was held in a festive mood. We earlier promised to hold a model election there. This has been a model election finally,” election commissioner Rafiqul Islam told a post-election briefing at the city’s Nirbachan Bhaban on Thursday.He said though the BNP’s allegation is not authentic as per the EC’s information gathered from the field, the commission will examine the accusation.BNP at a press briefing earlier in the day alleged that the administration obstructed voters from going to some polling stations, while polling agents were ousted from some centres during the city corporation election.Earlier at about 2:30pm, chief election commissioner KM Nurul Huda told newsmen that they were happy with the overall election situation in Rangpur.Trashing BNP’s allegation, he said, “We’ve gleaned information from the local level. Voters didn’t come up with any complaint. So, we think the allegation is not authentic,”Ruling Awami League, however, conceded defeat of its candidate in Rangpur civic polls even before votes of all polling stations are counted to declare the final results.Seeing the initial trend and presumably based on field-level information, AL general secretary Obaidul Quader made the move of accepting defeat to, however, none but its ally Jatiya Party.“The Awami League has lost in electoral battle in the Rangpur City Corporation elections but the party has earned a political victory,” he said addressing a press conference at the AL president’s Dhanmondi political office on Thursday evening.In the maiden election to the city held in 2012, Sarfuddin bagged 106,255 votes while Mostafiz polled 77,835, Jatiya Party-backed AKM Abdur Rouf Manik got 37,208 votes and BNP-backed Babla bagged only 21,235 votes.However, the 2012 election was held in a non-partisan manner unlike this election.Instead of ballot papers, the newly designed Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) was used in a polling station — the Begum Rokeya Government College at ward 25 — of the election.last_img read more

Government says it will not be blackmailed by teachers strike

first_imgPRESIDENT Nicos Anastasiades said on Wednesday the government would not succumb to blackmail as teachers announced a 48-hour strike next week.All three teachers’ unions – Poed, Oelmek and Oltek – decided to go on strike next Tuesday and Wednesday after their latest proposals were rejected by the government in a dispute that has been going on since early July.It was also announced that they would draw up a plan for staggered strikes.Following the meeting, the head of primary education union Poed, Fylios Fylaktou, said that the “proud world of education” was reacting to “illegal machinations” with a first, 48-hour strike.The head of secondary education union Oelmek, Yiannos Socratous, said that the government had forced them to reach this point and asked society to show understanding.The present bone of contention is the credit system the government had proposed last week that it hoped could lead to an interim deal to be in force until the end of the year. It was a bid to ease the tension and satisfy some of the teachers’ demands while leaving room for dialogue between the two sides.The government had proposed a credit system, whereby form teachers, who will still see their ‘free’ periods according to years of service cut from two to one, as announced back in July, would be compensated for this loss via a ‘credit system’ or through other incentives granted over the long term.The teachers counter proposed on Tuesday that, based on the credit system, a teacher who teaches more hours than the curriculum specifies, for example, should receive credit for those hours in the next school year. The government rejected that proposal.Education minister, Costas Hambiaouris, told state broadcaster CyBC on Wednesday that the unions’ latest plan “was predetermining the result of the dialogue”.As the three unions were holding their joint meeting in the evening, President Nicos Anastasiades said that the government would not succumb to blackmail by any trade unionist.“The government is mandated and elected by the people to govern, not to be governed by trade unionists, who, agree on something and the next day they negate what they have agreed on,” Anastasiades said.He said that the government had made every effort to engage in dialogue with trade unions, and had “even retreated from positions that have been condemned by society”.Anastasiades referred to “workers who have the privilege of working less, getting paid more, without bringing the expected results that society expects”. This, he said, could not be.He added that they had reached an agreement with teacher unions on July 27 on launching a dialogue which the unions had then broken.“On August 23, a proposal had been jointly formed with the trade union leaders, on September 6 they shook on it […], unfortunately due to the different trends within the trade unions, we have the current results.”It must be understood, Anastasiades said, that one’s right is one thing but using that right at the expense of 120,000 children and thousands of parents, was another. At the same time, he said, it was also a provocation to workers in general.“I want to remind you that we have the highest budget among the EU member states in the field of education. We have the best paid teachers – ranked among the top six – we have unfortunately the fewest teaching hours, but, the worst is, (we have) the worst learning outcomes,” he said.The government is ready, he said, to move on to dialogue and find appropriate solutions.“One element of course is the dialogue on the issue of teaching time which is not the most (important),” Anastasiades said.He added most important were the evaluation of educational work, teacher and pupil evaluations, issues related to the further education of the teachers and improvement of public schools.Members voted last week to authorise their unions to take any measures they deemed suitable, including a strike.The dispute started in July after the government decided to make changes to the teachers’ terms of employment by reducing their exemptions from teaching hours and curtailing union bosses’ rights, such as dealing with union matters on taxpayer money.Oelmek’s Socratous said that they have also formed a committee that, in cooperation with their legal advisers, would take measures both within and outside Cyprus on the issue of the general depreciation of dialogue and the right to union representation. You May LikeCareers Advisor9 Worst College Degrees For Job MarketCareers AdvisorUndoBacalaoCheck out the 30 most beautiful women in the worldBacalaoUndoWomenDrama9 Foods That Boosts Your Immune SystemWomenDramaUndo Two of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoMorphou bishop now claims gay men have a ‘nasty smell’UndoState Legal Service condemns attack on attorney-generalUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
