Rp 546 billion in Bank Bali evidence already returned to state: Deputy attorney general

first_imgDeputy Attorney General Setia Untung Arimuladi insisted on Tuesday that the Rp 546 billion (US$36.5 million) seized as evidence in the high-profile Bank Bali graft case had long ago been wired to the state treasury.Setia said that he was in charge of executing a court ruling on the case that ordered the funds to be returned to the state, during his term as head of the South Jakarta Prosecutor’s Office on June 29, 2009.The funds were transferred using the real-time gross settlement (RTGS) transfer system, which allowed instantaneous wiring, to the Finance Ministry’s Directorate General of the Treasury, Setia said, following what he described as long and difficult administrative procedures. Setia also showed the proofs of the transfer and the court order in the case.Read also: Where has Rp 540 billion in Bank Bali evidence gone?: Ex-KPK chairman“You can check with the Finance Ministry whether I, the [then] head of the South Jakarta Prosecutor’s Office, lied about having executed [the order]. Please check with the director general of the state treasury,” he told the press on Tuesday as quoted by tempo.co.Previously, former Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) chairman Antasari Azhar — who handled the 1998 Bank Bali case during his time at the AGO — questioned the whereabouts of the evidence as he called for authorities to ensure the security of the state funds.Antasari was recently questioned by the National Police’s Criminal Investigation Department (Bareskrim) in relation to the Bank Bali graft case, particularly concerning the escape of graft convict Djoko Soegiarto Tjandra, who was sentenced to two years in prison for his involvement in the scandal.

Rastafarian community speaks out against Dread Act and marijuana sentencing among minors

first_img Share LocalNews Rastafarian community speaks out against Dread Act and marijuana sentencing among minors by: – November 21, 2011 321 Views   no discussions Tweet Sharing is caring!center_img Image via: newagerealist.comAttorney at Law Peter Alleyne says is concerned about the number of young people who are being brought to the Court for the simple use of marijuana.Alleyne who was addressing a press conference to observe the 37th anniversary of the Dread Act in Dominica says while there has been major improvement in regard to the treatment of rastafarians on the island, there is still widespread discrimination.“The main fight against a rasta man from 1969 to now is marijuana. Therefore the fact that everyday young persons are brought before the Courts for a simple possession of marijuana and larger quantities is a major concern for the Rasta movement in Dominica,” he said.Peter further stated that the relevance of Monday’s observance after thirty-seven (37) years is the fact that “we still hear the cry and the increase in violence among the country’s youth”.According to Alleyne, the issue of reconciliation is also a major concern for rastafarians in Dominica.Meantime member of the Rastafarian organization Ras Mo Moses said the passage of the Dread Act which gave citizens the right to shoot other citizens on site without question, was an attack on the rastafarian community as well.The act was passed by the Dominica Labour Party under the leadership of former Prime Minister, Patrick Roland John and was supported and unopposed by the official opposition the Dominica Freedom Party under the leadership of Mary Eugenia Charles.Moses explained that the Dread Act was implemented to curb the spread and influence of the Rastafarian movement in Dominica.“The law aimed to stem the spread of and influence for the rastafarian movement in Dominica by sentencing members to nine months in prison for the hairstyle dread locks or dreads or any memorabilia that identified them as dreads as they were call at the time. This law resulted in the imprisonment of many youth, disrupting their education, family life and careers. Along with the negative social and economic impact on those affected by the law, enforcement of the law proved to be brutal, resulting in death and injury to many dreadlocks, wearing individuals who fled to the hills for refuge. The law was briefly repelled and again reinforced in 1976 but has since then been replaced by the terrorist act,” he explained.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharelast_img read more

Norris Prevost.Parliamentary Representative for the Roseau Central Constituency Norris Prevost has lent his support to the Dominica Association of Persons with Disabilities (DAPD) in their quest to lobby the government to ratify the United Nation’s convention on the rights of persons living with disabilities.Prevost told a workshop organized by the Association recently that the United Workers Party is fully committed to the ratification and implementation of the convention.Prevost explained that while some people are born with disabilities, they may acquire it during their lifetime.“Many of us here already have disabilities and there are many who are on their way to disabilities, however if they take action, they can reduce the possibilities,” Prevost said.He explained that diabetes, “which is a manageable disease” is one of the precursors to such disabilities to losing one’s limb or eyesight. “We can do a lot for our neighbors in reducing disabilities,” he added, noting that the convention is about caring for the rights of the minority.“At the heart of the matter is the plea for the majority (those in economic and political power_ to care about the rights of the minority, especially those who have disabilities”, Prevost said.He is calling for the availability of statistics to show how many persons have disabilities, in an effort to better address the problem.Dominica Vibes News Tweetcenter_img Share Share Sharelast_img read more

Suarez: Reds know I want to leave

first_img Press Association Liverpool are facing a major battle to keep hold of Luis Suarez after the striker admitted he no longer feels “comfortable” at the club. Referring to the English media, Suarez added: “Being persecuted by the paparazzi all the time, I couldn’t go to my garden or the supermarket – I couldn’t do anything. “I know it is normal being followed by the press, but it was too much. All the silly things they said about me, all the pictures, all the taunts. That happened every day and nobody supported me. “They talk about me being named as the best player in England, but I knew it wasn’t going to happen because of the way they treated me.” Suarez, who is serving a 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic, went on to say: “The straw that broke the camel’s back was my mistake (the Ivanovic incident). I accept it – my fault. But they went too far.” Suarez confirmed there had been no “offer” for him yet, and said he was unsure about when a move might materialise, if at all. He said: “I don’t have any offer yet. I don’t know when I will leave or even if I will finally leave, or I will stay. The club knows what I think and what I want. I don’t know what will happen, but I have a contract. If I stay, I will do my best here, but I don’t think that will happen because of all the bullying from the press against me. The team is very aware of everything.” Suarez has scored more than 50 goals for the Reds in all competitions, and in 2012-13 – a season in which he netted 30 times – he made the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award, eventually won by Tottenham’s Gareth Bale. center_img Suarez said he wants to leave because of “bullying” by the English media. Suarez, 26, speaking at a Uruguay national team press conference on Thursday night, said: “My reason for leaving is not the money – if it were the money, I would have left already. “My main reason is my family and my image – that is my priority now. It is a difficult moment for me. The coach and my colleagues know that they (the English media) didn’t treat me well here. I don’t feel comfortable here any more. They know it, so I think it is understandable that I leave.” last_img read more

Gunners in hunt for experienced duo

first_img Leaving the Gunners is midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong, who has joined Championship side Barnsley in a permanent deal. Arsenal’s rivals Tottenham have missed out on a return for Dimitar Berbatov, with the Fulham striker set to join Monaco. The 33-year-old Bulgarian travelled to Monaco to undergo a medical this afternoon with the French Ligue 1 side, with German midfielder Lewis Holtby joining Fulham on loan from Tottenham for the rest of the season. Fulham have also captured Greece striker Kostas Mitroglou from Olympiacos for a reported fee of £11million. The 25-year-old, who has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal, has been in superb form, scoring 21 goals in 23 appearances for club and country this season, including four hat-tricks. Chelsea have announced the signing of Kurt Zouma from St Etienne, where the defender will remain on loan for the rest of the season. The 19-year-old has signed a five-and-a-half-year contract at Stamford Bridge. Meanwhile, the long-anticipated loan deal for Manchester United winger Wilfried Zaha to Cardiff has finally gone through. The 21-year-old has joined the Bluebirds for the rest of the season and should get a chance to prove his Premier League quality after a frustrating six months at United. Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “He has pace, power, technical ability and goes past people. He will bring that little final bit to find pockets of space and produce a bit of magic.” Sunderland have signed Scotland midfielder Liam Bridcutt from Brighton on a three-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee, while Southampton striker Dani Osvaldo has moved closer to joining Juventus as he underwent a medical with the Italian league leaders. The 28-year-old Italy international arrived in a club-record deal from Roma last summer but has failed to live up to the billing. Juventus announced on their website: “Italian international striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is visiting Turin’s Clinica Fornaca di Sessant, Isokinetic and Istituto di Medicina dello Sport centres today for medical examinations.” Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier has confirmed he intends to stay with the French club following interest from Newcastle. “I don’t intend to leave. It’s not a priority, even if the offers from big clubs make you think,” Grenier said on Lyon’s website. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is still hoping Yevhen Konoplyanka’s transfer will go through but admits the deal is “a little complicated”. The Reds have been in talks with Ukrainian club Dnipro over their winger who is likely to cost a fee of around £16million. Arsenal switched tack from youth to experience on deadline day, dropping their interest in young German winger Julian Draxler and turning to veteran Swedish midfielder Kim Kallstrom. Kallstrom, 31, travelled to London from Abu Dhabi, where he had been training with his Russian club Spartak Moscow ahead of an expected loan deal until the end of the season. Wenger ruled out a deal for Schalke’s Draxler, but has also been linked with another German, Lazio’s 35-year-old forward Miroslav Klose, the joint top scorer and second most-capped player of all time for his country.
