Novel’s alleged attackers should be acquitted to restart investigation: Former KPK chief

first_imgTopics : Other former KPK leaders and Novel’s legal team members had urged the KPK to act upon the light sentence sought against the defendants, arguing that the attack on Novel was an attack on the national corruption eradication agenda as well. “If I were the judge, I would use my judge reasoning in addition to my legal reasoning and intuition,” he continued.If the judge were to acquit the defendants of all charges, Busyro suggested that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo form an independent fact-finding team to reopen the new investigation instead of handing it over to the police again.State prosecutors had previously demanded a one-year prison sentence against the defendants, police personnel Chief Brig. Ronny Bugis and Brig. Rahmat Kadir Mahulette. The defendants allegedly attacked Novel with sulfuric acid, resulting in serious damage to Novel’s eyes.The light sentence demands had sparked public outcry questioning the prosecutors’ arguments that the defendants “accidentally” threw the acid into Novel’s face in April 2017.Read also: Baffled by light sentences sought for Novel Baswedan’s attackers, netizens turn to humorActivists and members of the public also raised suspicions that the two policemen were merely scapegoated, with the mastermind still at large.Novel had tweeted through his Twitter account, @nazaqistha, that the defendants should be released “rather than making things up”, expressing his disbelief that the accused were the real culprits.

He was later freed of all charges by the Bantul District Court in 1997 due to a lack of evidence.“The real culprit will not be revealed unless the judges free the defendants with their conscience,” Busyro, who led the antigraft agency from 2011 to 2015, said. Former Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chairman Busyro Muqoddas expressed support for the judges at the North Jakarta District Court to free the alleged attackers of graft buster Novel Baswedan in order to give room for a new investigation.“Hopefully the panel of judges will acquit [the defendants] so a new investigation can be carried out,” he said in a virtual discussion on Novel’s case held by Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) on Friday.Busyro said the new inquisition would hopefully reveal the real culprits and masterminds behind the case. He cited the murder case of a journalist of Yogyakarta local daily newspaper Bernas during the New Order era.last_img read more

IMF approves US$15.1 million disbursement to Haiti

first_img Tweet 7 Views   no discussions Share Share Sharecenter_img NewsRegional IMF approves US$15.1 million disbursement to Haiti by: – March 22, 2012 Sharing is caring! Haitian map. WASHINGTON, USA — The executive board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) completed the second and third reviews of Haiti’s performance under the extended credit facility (ECF) arrangement on March 19, 2012. Completion of the reviews will enable an immediate disbursement of SDR 9.83 million (about US$15.1 million), bringing total disbursements under the program to date to SDR 26.21 million (about US$40.3 million).Haiti’s ECF arrangement was approved on July 21, 2010, together with the full relief on the country’s outstanding debt to the Fund of about SDR 178 million (equivalent to US$274 million). The debt relief and IMF financing are part of a broad international strategy to support Haiti’s longer-term economic reconstruction plans, following the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010.Following the executive board discussion on Haiti, Naoyuki Shinohara, deputy managing director and acting chair, issued the following statement:“Haiti’s economy continues to recover. The sustained efforts of the authorities and the international community have helped rekindle growth, keep inflation at single digits levels, and strengthen the fiscal and external accounts. However, the reconstruction and the pace of implementation of structural reforms have generally been slower than anticipated, reflecting predominantly the protracted electoral process and the country’s limited administrative and absorptive capacity.“Significant challenges remain. Most Haitians live below the poverty line, and, two years after the earthquake, more than half a million people are still living in temporary shelters. Health and sanitary conditions remain poor. While favorable, the economic outlook remains subject to risks, including a weaker global economic environment and a deterioration in the domestic political and security situations. Pursuit of appropriate macroeconomic policies, acceleration of the reconstruction, and a steady implementation of structural reforms, as well as continuous engagement from the international community, will help support the recovery and lay the foundations for long-term sustainable development.“The government’s macroeconomic policy mix for 2012 remains appropriate. Higher government revenue and continued non-priority spending restraint will help create additional fiscal space to ramp up spending on poverty-related and other priority projects. Monetary policy remains geared toward containing inflation in single digits. Increased flexibility in the exchange rate will help manage capital inflows, absorb external shocks, and improve monetary policy effectiveness.“The structural reform agenda focuses on strengthening revenue administration; enhancing institutional capacity for better public investment implementation and monitoring; improving public financial management and economic governance; and strengthening the financial sector.”Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

Loading… Casemiro’s strike moments before the break was enough to separate the sides and ensure Madrid continued their winning run in the division, which now stands at five games. Zinedine Zidane’s side entered the matchday weekend top of the table courtesy of their head-to-head record over Barcelona, but the Blaugrana dropped two points at Celta Vigo on Saturday to allow Madrid to create breathing room. Casemiro – who returned to a four-man Madrid midfielder following suspension – struck just before half-time following Karim Benzema’s sensational backheeled assist that split open the home side’s defence. The result means Espanyol stay at the foot of the table and relegation now feels inevitable – they are 10 points adrift of safety with just six rounds of action remaining.Advertisement Read Also: Video: Messi pulls off genius assist from free-kick against Celta Vigo The club’s sporting director Rufete was in the home dugout at the RCDE Stadium – the club’s fourth Coach of the campaign – following the surprise sacking of Abelardo Fernandez on Saturday.

Olmstead proves up to challenge in quest for Northern SportMod rookie of the year

first_imgKarl Chevrolet Northern SportMod national rookie of the year and Lexington Raceway track champion Jacob Olmstead. (Photo courtesy of Jacob Olmstead)OVERTON, Neb. – Jacob Olmstead proved up to the challenge in a second IMCA division this season.Olmstead earned national Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod rookie of the year honors, winning 10 of his 43 starts and the track title at Lexington Raceway.“We started strong, won a feature, wrecked a car and had some bad luck,” the Overton, Neb., driver summarized. “I got to run with guys I grew up watching and kept racing hard locally as many nights as we could.”Third in national point standings for the Hobby Stocks in 2015 – the year his brother Zach was the top rookie in that class – Olmstead ran an abbreviated 2016 season before selling his car and crewing full-time.“I wanted something different. I wanted a new challenge, so I bought the car that Tyler Frye had driven to the national championship and ran that a couple times after the point season,” he ex­plained. “Our goal in 2017 was to run for national rookie. I wanted to get some seat time and experi­ence so I could look halfway like I knew what I was doing.”Career win number one in the class came in his seventh start, at Boone County Raceway on May 5.“I told my dad my goal this season was to win one feature. It has always been my dream to win a SportMod feature,” Olmstead said. “I was watching the laps count down and thinking Just throw the checkers! I was speechless for hours after I won. It was a pretty crazy night.”Olmstead had that car figured out before a late June wreck, also at Albion. He bought another BMS car, which had sat outside for four years, for the frame, swapped parts and promptly won three straight starts.His 10th and final win of the season came on Aug. 20 … two days before he and wife Jenna celebrated the birth of their first child, son Owen.Starts-43                        Wins-10                          Additional Top Fives-13HIS CREW: Wife Jenna, parents Troy and Gina, brothers Zach and Morgan, sister Mallory, Kellin Myers, Trevor Myers, the Frye family and the Murray family.HIS SPONSORS: South Central Feeders and Harmon Motorsports, both of Arapahoe; Bruner Frank Attorneys at Law of Kearney; the Myers family of Axtell; Weinman Farms of Arnold; EQ Cylinder Heads of Las Vegas, Nev.; BSB Manufacturing of Wellington, Kan.; Tin Man Bodies of Belleville, Kan.; and Ultimate Machine of Phillipsburg, Kan.last_img read more

India’s top court names administrators to run BCCI

first_imgNEW DELHI, India (Reuters) – A historian, a retired auditor and a financial executive were among four persons named by India’s highest court yesterday to run the country’s cricket board (BCCI).Former India women’s captain Diana Edulji was the only administrator with direct cricket experience although historian and columnist Ramachandra Guha has written numerous books about the sport.Earlier this month, BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke were removed by the Supreme Court for failing to implement administrative reforms within the world’s richest cricket body.The court appointed Vinod Rai, former comptroller and auditor general of India, and the Chief Executive of IDFC (Infrastructure Development Finance Corporation) Vikram Limaye as the other administrators to supervise BCCI operations.In July, the court accepted most of the recommendations of a three-member panel it had set up to investigate the BCCI following a fixing scandal during the 2013 Indian Premier League Twenty20 competition.The BCCI rejected some of the recommendations made by the panel headed by former Chief Justice R.M. Lodha, which included age and tenure restrictions for top officials as well as banning them from serving successive terms.The committee of administrators, to be chaired by Rai, will take immediate charge and run the board in liaison with BCCI Chief Executive Rahul Johri until new officials are elected.last_img read more

Harberts leads USC’s Pac-12 honorees

first_imgSenior forward Cassie Harberts was named to the All-Pac-12 Team for the second consecutive year on Tuesday, leading four other Women of Troy to receive All-Conference honors ahead of the Pac-12 Tournament on Thursday.Best of the best · Senior forward Cassie Harberts was named to the All-Pac-12 team yesterday for the second straight season. Harberts averaged 16.2 points per game this season after posting an 18.0 average in 2012-2013. – Ricardo Galvez | Daily TrojanJunior guard Ariya Crook earned All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention, junior forward Alexyz Vaioletama and sophomore guard Brianna Barrett made the conference’s All-Defensive Team Honorable Mention and guard Courtney Jaco landed All-Freshman Team Honorable Mention.In head coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke’s first season at the helm, Harberts was the standout star for the Women of Troy en route to their 18-12 (11-7) record and fifth-place finish in the Pac-12. The four-year starter led the team in points per game (16.2), rebounds per game (7.5), minutes per game (32.9) and blocks (25). She asserted herself as the fulcrum of USC’s offense down low in the post, constantly drawing double-teams and fouls, as she led the team in free throw attempts (214) while converting 57 percent of her tries from the line. Harberts was one of 15 players and seven returnees to be named to the squad.Harberts tied three others for USC’s program-record 128 appearances in the Women of Troy’s final regular season game, and is poised to claim the record for herself in the team’s Pac-12 Tournament opener against Arizona on Thursday.If Harberts was the steady star for USC that teams knew they had to stop, Crook was the breakout performer who frequently showed offensive explosiveness to catch opposing defenses off-guard. The Torrance, Calif. native averaged 15.8 points and 2.3 assists per game, often utilizing her quickness to drive to the basket for easy lay-ups. In USC’s biggest win of the season, a 77-70 road upset over then-No. 19 Cal, Crook poured in 34 points, the most scored by a Woman of Troy since 2002.Both Vaioletama, the only USC player to start all 30 games besides Harberts, and Barrett molded reputations as defensive stoppers this season. Vaioletama led the team in steals (1.9) and defensive rebounds (4.8) per game, while also doubling her offensive output from last season in becoming USC’s third-leading scorer (8.5 ppg).Barrett, who received All-Defensive Team Honorable Mention for the second straight year, led the team in assists per game (2.8), was second in steals per game (1.4) and fourth in points (6.8 per game).Jaco established herself as a solid contributer off the bench, averaging 3.8 points per game and nailing 36.1 percent of her three-point attempts while averaging 14.1 minutes.The selections were culled from a vote of the league’s 12 women’s basketball head coaches.Stanford forward Chiney Ogwumike won her second straight Pac-12 Player of the Year award, Stanford coach Tara VanDerveer was honored with her fourth straight Coach of the Year award and Washington guard Kelsey Plum was named Pac-12 Freshman of the Year.last_img read more
