Madoff Investment Securities were apparent to Citi as early as 2005, according to court papers. The lawsuit seeks $425m (£263m) from the bank.Citi said in a statement yesterday that the allegations in the lawsuit were false and it would “vigorously defend against these claims”.Madoff, now serving a 150-year sentence, was arrested in December 2008 after admitting he ran a decades-long, multibillion-dollar swindle.Picard also has sued JPMorgan Chase & Co, Madoff’s primary banker, for $6.4bn, alleging the bank turned a blind eye to Madoff’s scheme.Portions of both lawsuits were edited to conceal names. The lawsuit against Citi was filed on 8 December in US Bankruptcy Court in New York.It cited a September 2008 email by a Citigroup Global Markets trader to another bank saying: “We’re needing to terminate our Madoff trade. Do you have appetite for that risk over there?” Citigroup in Madoff row Tuesday 22 February 2011 9:21 pm whatsapp whatsapplast_img read more

In 2017, he was named one of Iraq’s “Personalities Of The Year” by the country’s Ministry of Culture and in 2018 he was honored by the Iraqi Army for his peace-building efforts and for “his outstanding contribution to peaceful co-existence in Iraq.” At the time, the Chief of Staff of the Iraqi Army, Lieutenant-General Othman al-Ghanmi, praised Father Faiz “for his courage in helping to raise awareness of issues others feared to broach.”The church is currently struggling with the Covid-19 pandemic and about 2,000 new cases a day in Iraq. “Most observers believe that the true number is much higher,” according to the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East (FRRME), which supports the Church in Baghdad. “There is a stigma around illness in some communities and this is thought to lead to a lot of under-reporting.”FRRME funds St. George’s medical center, which was treating 2,000 patients each month before the pandemic. One of its doctors has tested positive for the virus as has a staff member of the church. “They both went into quarantine of course”, FRRME said. “Once again this demonstrates the risks which front-line medics work under in the current health crisis.”The medical center has purchased a new sanitizing unit that will be used by everyone entering the clinic to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. The clinic is treating people with mild Covid-19 symptoms. More advanced cases are being referred to local hospitals. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MIlast_img read more

Please enter your email address here […] pets in hurricane plans and a second with tips on preparing your pets for hurricanes can be found here, both by Dale Fenwick and in the Apopka […] Five Ways To Prepare Your Pets For HurricanesBy Jeff DorsonHurricane Katrina taught us the hard way that the safety of our animals must be made a priority in the event of a disaster. We know we must make preparations now-before the storm- in order to avoid chaos and confusion later. The following guidelines are designed to help you make these preparations to ensure the wellfare of your pets this hurricane season.Evacuate With Your Animals!Acquire appropriately sized pet carriers for each animal. If your pet is unaccustomed to traveling in a carrier, do some trial runs, so the experience will not be completely new when you evacuate. Label each carrier with your contact information, and the name of the pet inside.Provide For The Needs Of Your Pets During And After The EvacuationCreate a Pet Evacuation Kit so that everything they need is packed and ready to go in the event of an evacuation. Click here for our list of recommended provisions for your pet’s kit.Make Sure Your Pet Is Up To Date On All VaccinationsIdeally, you will be able to keep your animals with you throughout the evacuation process; but in the event that they must be boarded at a shelter, vet, or other boarding facility, your animal must be current on all vaccinations to be admitted. You will be required to show proof of these vaccinations. Ask your vet for a copy of your pet’s vaccination record, including a current rabies license and tag.Have Your Pet MicrochippedWe highly recommend this animal identification and tracking system. A tiny microchip is injected under the animal’s skin, where it remains for the duration of your pet’s life. The chip poses no threat to your pet’s health, and the injection is quick and relatively painless, much like the vaccination process. Your pet’s personal identification number is read by a scanning device routinely used by most humane societies, shelters, animal control, and veterinarians. You will then be contacted as to the location of your pet. (At the very least, have identification tags with your pets name, your address and phone number, securely affixed to your pet’s collar).Create An Identification File For Each Pet.This is an insurance policy against the irrevocable loss of your pet in the event of a disaster. The file should include current photographs of your pet (you will have to show a photograph to have your animal released to you from a shelter, or other holding facility; including yourself in the photos will facilitate this process), microchip identification number, adoption papers, a written description of your pet (feline, female, 7 years old, grey tabby, 10 lbs, etc), a description of your pet’s distinctive markings (white paws, black spot on back, etc.), diet, medications, vaccination history, behavioral issues and personality. Place the file in a water-proof folder, and put it with your Pet Evacuation Kit.Secure Accommodations For Your Pet Before The Storm.Establish where your pet will be housed in the event of an evacuation. Ideally, you will be traveling to friends or family who are willing and able to house your pets. For many of us, other arrangements must be made. Locate pet-friendly hotels, boarding facilities, and shelters in the area to which you will be evacuating. Secure reservations for your animals if possible, and get directions to the hotel or boarding facility. For a list of websites featuring pet-friendly accommodations, click here.Pet Evacuation Kit Provisions:Pet food ( 2 week supply; don’t forget the manual can opener if you bring canned food!)Water (2 week supply)Pet bowls leashes and/or harnesses medications (including heart worm preventative, flea preventative)Pet carriers, labeled with your contact information pet identification folders vaccination history (including rabies license and tags)Medical historyPet first aid kit (see below for contents)Emergency contact numbers (your veterinarian’s phone number, for example)List of pet-friendly hotels, shelters, boarding facilities maps with evacuation routes.Pet toys, pet beds, and/or blankets, treats, litter box, litter, and scoop dog-poop bags paper towels trash bags, flashlight, batteries and radioJeff Dorson is the Executive Director of the Humane Society of Louisiana Reply read more

Matanzas is a recognized place among kitesurfers and windsurfers for its waves and privileged winds that allow you to enjoy these sports. Our client chose precisely this area for these attributes, the owner is a Kitesurf lover and wanted a house that would allow him to enjoy the view and the outside, but protected from the wind. With this as a priority, we worked on a simple scheme that referred to his hobby. A roof that changes in width with respect to the base, a simple geometric game that gives movement to the house and that makes the house perceived differently depending on the point of view, generating a dynamic architecture.Save this picture!© Sebastián Cerda PéSave this picture!Terrace sectionSave this picture!© Sebastián Cerda PéThe site is at the top of a hill, we chose to place the house a few meters below the top, taking advantage of the hill as a natural protector of the south wind. In addition, a closed terrace was developed that protected from the sun and setting wind, a location that also directs the view towards the main landscape, the Rapel River. The material chosen was impregnated pinewood, both for the structure and for the cladding. The pine wood is an abundant material in the area and often used among local workers. It was thought from the beginning to have large windows with north orientation (privileging view of the landscape and abundance of sun) plus a facade with small openings to the south, thus reducing thermal losses.Save this picture!© Sebastián Cerda PéSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Sebastián Cerda PéProgrammatically, it is composed of a large common space divided into exterior and interior, a limit that disappears when the windows are opened. At the opposite end of the terrace are the bedrooms and a bathroom. In addition, it is thought that this programming is compatible with possible future extensions of this house. The family that owns this house has been able to enjoy a privileged landscape close to perfect beaches to enjoy marine sports and a space that allows them to enjoy sheltered from the wind and open to the sun.Save this picture!© Sebastián Cerda PéSave this picture!AxoSave this picture!© Sebastián Cerda PéProject gallerySee allShow lessStevenson School Library / Studio O+ASelected ProjectsOffice within a Block / Sol89Selected Projects Share Sebastián Cerda Pé CopyAbout this officeCerda Pe ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNavidadChilePublished on November 25, 2019Cite: “Refugio Matanzas / Cerda Pe Arquitectos” [Refugio Matanzas / Cerda Pe Arquitectos] 25 Nov 2019.

Government urged to extend right to confidentiality of sources after two journalists charged

first_img Organisation June 2, 2021 Find out more German BND Act: A missed opportunity for press freedom GermanyEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information News RSF_en Follow the news on Germany May 31, 2021 Find out more Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU to go furthercenter_img Reporters Without Borders today urged the German authorities to extend the right to protection of sources to investigative journalists after freelancer Bruno Schirra and Johannes von Dohnanyi, the head of the foreign section of the Swiss weekly SonntagsBlick, were charged by the Potsdam prosecutor’s office on 15 March with “complicity in divulging a state secret.”Schirra is alleged to have divulged information contained in a confidential German police report about the Al-Qaeda network that was passed to him by Von Dohnanyi. The information was supposedly revealed in a report Schirra wrote for the political magazine Cicero. The two journalists are to be tried by a criminal court.The police searched the magazine’s offices five months after the article was published, thereby violating the right to confidentiality of information enshrined in articles 10 and 19 of the German constitution.Reporters Without Borders said it welcomed initiatives currently being undertaken by the Liberal Party and Green Party in the Bundestag with a view to introducing greater protection for journalists and their sources in the criminal code.The press freedom organisation firmly condemned the charges brought by the prosecutor’s office and its refusal to consider that the right to protection of sources applied in the case. The organisation urged the authorities to take account of the importance for the public of the information revealed, supporting the existence of links between Iran and one of Al-Qaeda’s leaders in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.Reporters Without Borders therefore called on the authorities to drop the proceedings against Schirra and Von Dohnanyi. The police raids and the charges were diverting attention from the fact that the leak seem to come from within a German government department and seemed designed to prevent journalists from using anonymous sources, the organisation added.

A three-judge Bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justice Bopanna and Justice Ramasubramanian has granted the petitioner liberty to withdraw the plea and first approach the Delhi High Court. During the hearing today, Advocate Dhruv Tamta, appearing on behalf of the petitioner, requested the Court to consider the case as it will have a national impact. “Its okay, we can have advantage of the High Court’s opinion as well.” – the Bench said.The present plea filed by Advocate Dhruv Tamta, on behalf of the petitioner Rajesh Kumar stated that the government had introduced the fastags with the object of ensuring that the payment of fees be 100% at Toll Plazas through the Electronic Means only and to ensure that the vehicles pass seamlessly through the Fee Plazas, there is no waiting time at the Plazas and fuel would be saved. However, this objective is clearly distinguishable from the object with which the requirement of insurance and fitness certificate of a vehicle is required. While the utility of Fastags is limited to the crossing of the toll plaza on the highway, the requirement of having insurance and fitness certificate for the vehicle even before it is released from the showroom and its subsequent renewal is to check the condition of the car. Therefore while the FASTag has limited application, the latter has general application and thus the two cannot be linked. The petition has challenged two notifications dates 2nd November 2018 and 6th an over 2020 that mandated the renewal of fitness certificate only after the fitment of FASTag for the Transport Vehicles. A valid FASTag has been made mandatory for getting a new 3rd Party Insurance. According to the petitioner, fitness certificate and insurance certificate operate on different footing than the fastags. The fastag being a mechanism for realizing toll tax, will only operate at highways and have no usage for cars being driven in the municipal limits of a State. Therefore it is just and appropriate that linkage of procuring fastags with the fitness certificate and insurance certificate may not be insisted. The petition further stated that that the power to levy tax and its realization cannot travel beyond the objective of the tax and cannot be made penal in nature. The impugned notifications have therefore failed to take into account that there may be class of citizens with limited means of survival and who are leading retired life but have to maintain vehicles in their home for limited purpose. Therefore making fastags mandatory for such vehicles being driven within state is unreasonable, arbitrary and violates Article 19 of the Constitution of India and is liable to be struck down to that extent.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
