10 months agoBarnes: Current Liverpool best in 35 years

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Barnes: Current Liverpool best in 35 yearsby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend John Barnes is excited by the team being put together by Jurgen Klopp.The Reds are six points clear at the top of the table after 19 rounds of fixtures and have yet to taste defeat in a League match this season.Barnes told BonusCodeBets.co.uk: “The team is more balanced than the point where we had Suarez, Coutinho, Sturridge and Sterling. They were very good attack-wise, but in terms of the balance between attack and defence, they probably didn’t work as hard or didn’t defend as comprehensively.”This is the best-balanced team that is capable of winning the Premier League.'”Even when we nearly won the Premier League in the season where Gerrard slipped, I think this is a better-balanced team and this team is more capable of winning because they also grind results out when they’re not playing well.”This is probably the most balanced Liverpool team I’ve seen in the last 20 to 35 years.” last_img read more

Health database that crosses provincial borders to launch with federal funding

first_imgVANCOUVER — Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor says a new database will help researchers find solutions to health events like the opioid crisis and chronic illnesses that cross provincial boundaries.While meeting with researchers at the University of British Columbia, Petitpas Taylor announce $81 million in funding over seven years to support the Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research Canadian Data Platform.Dr. Kim McGrail, who is the scientific director for the project, says researchers are often bogged down by administrative work involved in gathering data from provinces that each collect and share in different ways.She says this database intends to reduce that “painstaking” step by providing a single portal where researchers can request access to administrative, clinical and social data from various sources across the country.McGrail says analyzing data from across the country can lead to insights that would be impossible if limited to a single province.The platform is expected to launch in the next two to three months and the funding comes from several sources including Ottawa, the Canadian Institute for Health Research and the University of B.C.“A streamlined, simplified process for requesting comparable data will create new opportunities for researchers across the country,” McGrail says in a statement.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Morocco A Promising Investment Hub

By Nasser BouzbouneCyprus – During the past decade, more and more companies are choosing to settle in Morocco for business. Bombardier Aerospace, for instance, decided to shift its production of flight controls to a transitional facility stationed at the Mohammed V Airport, which is not far from Casablanca. The company has even opted to build a permanent plant in the region. Delphi, a supplier of electronics and technology for the automotive industry, has had its own factory in Morocco operating since 1999. An investment trend is on the rise throughout the world, and the biggest players are turning towards Morocco. Yet, one question remains, “Why is Morocco such an attractive region for investment?“ Many factors should be taken into consideration when answering this question. The country is known to be stable politically, growing economically, and geographically well-placed. Thus, it is open for investment in numerous sectors.The new constitution, which was approved in 2011, endowed the country with better lawmaking, individual and collective rights, and human rights. As a consequence, half a decade later,  economic growth has increased by 4.9%,  while inflation has remained under 2%. This led Morocco to mend its infrastructure and benefit from its economically strategic position in the globe. The Tanger-Med Port, located about 16 km away from Europe, is one of Africa’s largest and busiest ports. It has enhanced business between Morocco and Europe, attracting organizations to relocate their production centers as close to the port as possible. The country is now living up to its potential of becoming a huge global exporter, being at the intersection of maritime trade routes.The areas in which investors are most interested nowadays are property and real-estate. By investing in property, a businessman can purchase land using bank loans; he can pay off the loan through rent from tenants or sales to customers. Statistics from The Times Rich List have shown that about 50% of people have made money from property investment, and that a property worth $4,500 three decades ago would be worth around $250,000 today.As a pioneer in emerging markets, Morocco provides prosperous and well-disposed opportunities at great market prices compared to many of the other investment destinations. A $10M-per–year deal struck between the Kingdom and the UAE in 2010 has led to a dramatic increase in tourism. The deal was a total success mainly because of the tax advantages and other incentives that investors enjoy in the country.The Global Peace Index ranks Morocco as the 86th most peaceful country in the world. The number of foreigners (mostly retired people) who move to the Kingdom permanently proves that the country is a stable and peaceful region to live in. Being both traditional and cosmopolitan, Morocco today has the perfect mix. Differences in religion and practice are tolerated, since the country provides the required facilities for practice. Freedom, democracy, and law all categorize Morocco today ; they are the primary reasons why Morocco’s political formula functions in harmony.Morocco’s economy is among the most dynamic and elite in African and Southern Mediteranean countries. Morocco is especially attractive for Europeans as their economies become less profitable. Open for business and investment in multiple sectors, it attracts business from around the world.

New Zealand marine phosphate nodule company restates case for project

first_imgChatham Rock Phosphate Ltd has released a statement to “reconfirm that it offers a secure, low cadmium and ethical phosphate resource option to NZ farmers.” New Zealand needs to use its own source of ethically-produced, environmentally-friendly phosphate rock rather than importing product from a disputed territory, Chatham Rock Phosphate Chief Executive Chris Castle said on May 8. He was commenting on the interception and detention, by the Western Sahara liberation movement, of a shipment of phosphate rock on route for New Zealand.“This is the sort of supply disruption which we have been signalling for years. As both New Zealand fertiliser manufacturers source a large part of their phosphate rock from that area, the implications for farmers and the agriculture sector (the backbone of our economy) are serious. It underlines the strategic value of our deposit.Most of the rock phosphate imported into New Zealand comes from mines in the Western Sahara which has been under armed occupation by Morocco since 1975. The trade has continued despite this – and the 1991 commitment of the United Nations (and subsequent sanctions) to ensure Western Sahara benefits from self-determination.”Castle said the Chatham Rise resource is not only an ethical source but it also has among the lowest known levels of cadmium. “To put it in a nut shell, Chatham offers a secure, ultra-low cadmium supply of rock phosphate – with no associated ethical baggage.” Castle said the current issue is also a good time to consider more environmentally sustainable alternatives to current fertiliser products. “The rock coming (or not coming) from Morocco is used to make superphosphate, the predominant fertiliser used in New Zealand to apply phosphorus to soils. It’s well established this results in high levels of run off with resulting detrimental effects to our waterways. Research indicates it can also be detrimental to soil health over the long term. The solution to both problems is the use of Chatham rock phosphate as a direct application fertiliser. We can deliver a secure and sustainable local supply of low-cadmium phosphate that will also reduce fertiliser run-off into waterways, produce healthier soils and shrink fertiliser needs over time.”The resource, with an estimated worth of $5 to $7 billion according to the company, represents one of New Zealand’s most valuable mineral assets and is of huge strategic significance because phosphate is essential to maintain New Zealand’s high agricultural productivity. Chatham proposes to extract up to 1.5 Mt/y a year of phosphate nodules from the top half metre of sand on identified parts of an 820 km2 area on the Chatham Rise, 450 km off the west coast of New Zealand, in waters of 400 m.“Our environmental consenting process has established extraction would have no material impact on fishing yields or profitability, marine mammals or seabirds.” Castle said Chatham is also seeking other sustainable rock phosphate sources, to move from being a single project company and take more control of its destiny. “Recent approval of a Namibian environmental consent for a marine phosphate mining resource also opens the door for Chatham to advance its own Namibian permit applications. Chatham applied in 2012 for prospecting permits over five distinct areas well offshore Namibia, some not far from the area held by the successful applicant. These 2012 applications were lodged with the confidence that based on research undertaken to date, this area of the seabed likely contains substantial quantities of rock phosphate.”last_img read more

British woman dies after drinking tainted alcohol

first_imgA BRITISH BACKPACKER has died while trekking through the Indonesian jungle after she drank suspected tainted alcohol, police said Saturday.Cheznye Emmons, 23, was travelling with fellow Briton Joseph Cook, 21, through lush rainforest on Sumatra island, where many tourists go to see endangered orangutans, according to a police report into the incident.MansionThe pair, accompanied by a third tourist, drank four bottles of local whiskey called Mansion on April 20, according to the document.Police said they were investigating whether the alcohol was laced with methanol, which is highly poisonous. They said they were awaiting lab test results before deciding whether to open a criminal case.“We are going to ask the owner of the shop” about what happened, local detective Rosyid Hartanto told AFP .We don’t know whether the drinks were mixed when they bought them at the shop, or whether they have returned to their accommodation and mixed them with other things.The morning after consuming the alcohol, Emmons told staff at the accommodation where she was staying, in the Bukit Lawang area of Sumatra, that she had a stomach ache.She was admitted to hospital in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra province, after checking out.“On April 23, the owners of the accommodation… received the news that (she) had died,” the report said.A spokeswoman for the British embassy in Jakarta said: “It’s with regret that we can confirm the recent death of a British national in Medan.”There have been many previous cases where methanol-laced alcohol has proved fatal in Indonesia. In 2009, 25 people including four foreigners died after drinking methanol-laced palm wine on the resort island of Bali.- © AFP, 2013last_img read more

She heard he had previously been making sporadic and irregular payments which amounted to only €6,630 over the last four years or little more than €30 a week.Peter Boylan, a solicitor with Pearse Mehigan Solicitors who are representing Mr Battersby’s interests, today returned to court to seek directions with regard to the sale being handled under the personal directions of O’Neill.Judge Linnane said she had made her order for the sale of the house and had no further function in directing completion of arrangements.In 2012, Battersby sued his uncle claiming he committed 12 sexual assaults on him between 1982 and 1984 in O’Neill’s home and in the projection room of the Grove Cinema in Lucan where O’Neill worked.O’Neill pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to sexually assaulting his nephew and was given a two year suspended sentence. He did not defend his nephew’s claim for damages in 2012.Following O’Neill’s conviction in 2010, Battersby had described his uncle as, “A monster who stole my childhood.”Read: Judge rules winning gamblers have no legal guarantee of being paid> Mar 20th 2017, 2:40 PM Monday 20 Mar 2017, 2:40 PMlast_img read more

Luis Suarez opens up about his friendship with Leo Messi

Luis Suarez opens up about his friendship with Leo Messi

first_imgIn an excerpt from an interview with Diario Sport, Luis Suarez opened up about the very close friendship he has with Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona.When Luis Suarez first arrived at FC Barcelona, nobody imagined that he would develop such an intimate friendship with Lionel Messi.The Argentine player had the fame of being a very shy individual and he had a very tight group of friends, but Luis’ arrival meant that the star needed to open up a little bit more and they quickly found a feeling that has already transcended the football pitch.From the very first training session that Messi had alongside Suarez, you could tell that these two shared a special kind of connection and the results on the pitch were a direct consequence of this new found bond the two players shared.One could not be more different than the other, Luis is more of an extrovert while Messi almost looks like he has a rare form of autism, that is also recognized as “Asperger’s”.But the Argentine needed a person like Luis to express himself better, they have become inseparable and they are even considered brothers because they share their time even with their families.Before Suarez arrived in Barcelona, Messi had a number of players who spent time with him outside of the club but they all eventually left.📽 #EntrevistaSPORT con Luis Suárez🗣 “La gente ve a Messi pero yo veo a mi amigo”🔵🔴 El 9 del Barça se sincera en SPORT pic.twitter.com/UprLKDyNNA— Diario SPORT (@sport) January 31, 2019It is well-known that Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas keep a very close relationship despite living in different countries, the Argentine shared the youth academy with the AS Monaco player and their wives are actually best friends.Before Cesc, Messi had goalkeeper Pinto who looked more like his bodyguard than his friend. Now there is Suarez and the family life that we see them develop almost together, they both take their kids to the same school and they both love watching their sons play football every weekend.Making friends must be very difficult for a famous person like Messi, which is why having Luis Suarez alongside him at the moment must be a real treat for him.Neymar also shared a special bond with both players but the Brazilian decided to leave Barcelona and left the duo to develop their friendship alone, although he does visit them every chance he gets because they remain very close despite being hundreds of miles apart from each other.Top 5 Barcelona players to watch in the Champions League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 13, 2019 With the Champions League about to start, we need to start talking about the Top 5 Barcelona players to watch in the competition.The UEFA…When you take a look at the way both players get along, the camaraderie is frankly impossible to hide for both of them and Suarez explained it in a recent interview.En el Camp Nou, Barcelona retomó su esplendor y liquidó los sueños sevillanos ganando por un inapelable 6-1 y dejando muy atrás el 0-2 de la ida.

A lot of people look at him as Messi, but he will always be Leo for me because he is my friend.”“I don’t see him like the Messi that everybody sees inside the pitch, that’s why we keep spending time together everyday,” he concluded.Jugada de #LosCruzados contra @gremio_es en Marzo: Aleña: Fuenzalida; Messi: @Diego_Buona; Vidal: Aued; Suárez: Miku; Pique: Kuscevic; devuelve a Suárez: Miku pase a Jordi Alba: Cornejo que la deja pasar y goool de Messi: @Diego_Buona .

Alibabas Jack Ma is a Communist Party member reveals China state paper

first_imgJack Ma, founder-chairman of Chinese e-commerce firm AlibabaIANSJack Ma, the head of e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and China’s best-known capitalist, is a Communist Party member, the official Party newspaper said on Monday, debunking a public assumption the billionaire was politically unattached.The People’s Daily revealed Ma’s Party membership in a list of 100 people it said had helped drive the country ‘reform and opening up’ process. Ma is China’s richest man with a fortune of $35.8 billion, according to Forbes.It was unclear why the paper chose to mention Ma’s affiliation now but it comes amid a push by Beijing to bring the country’s private enterprises more in line with Party values, especially in the technology sector that has grown rapidly, driven by the successes of private firms.Ma, who announced in September he would step down as Alibaba chairman next year, is China’s highest-profile business leader. He has acted as an adviser to political leaders in Asia and Europe and fostered big ambitions in the United States.He has driven Alibaba to become a $390 billion giant, which dominates China’s online retail market, stretches from logistics to social media, and has spawned a separate fintech empire around popular payment platform Alipay.Ma’s political affiliation came as a surprise to many.Results from domestic search engine Baidu Inc, when asked “is Jack Ma a Communist Party member”, also mostly said that he was not.Alibaba declined to comment on Ma’s Party membership but said political ties did not impact the firm’s operations.”Political affiliation of any executive does not influence the company’s business decision-making process,” a spokesperson said in emailed comments to Reuters on Tuesday.”We follow all laws and regulations in countries where we operate as we fulfil our mission of making it easier for people to do business anywhere in the digital era.”The People’s Daily list also included Baidu head Robin Li and Tencent Holding Ltd chief Pony Ma, though did not name either of them as Party members. Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent together make up the ‘BAT’ trio of China’s top tech firms.The paper did not say when Ma had become a Party member.last_img read more

US Sec Tillerson still in CEO mode

US Sec Tillerson still in CEO mode

first_imgUS Secretary of State Rex Tillerson . AFPOne of Rex Tillerson’s first directives as US secretary of state was an order to senior staff that his briefing materials not exceed two pages.It was a reflection of Tillerson’s management style honed at the helm of Exxon Mobil, an oil company known for its relentless focus on efficiency, and one reason his closest aides at the State Department refer to him as “the CEO” rather than “the Secretary.”More than a dozen current and former U.S. officials familiar with briefing procedures said Tillerson’s predecessors would typically request far more detailed information. His aide R.C. Hammond said the directive reflected Tillerson’s focus on key facts rather than lack of interest in finer points of foreign policy.”He is asking people to be efficient with their information,” Hammond said, adding that if Tillerson needed more information he would ask for it. “He is a decision-maker and he needs the facts in front of him.”As a first-time government official with no prior diplomatic experience, Tillerson faces close scrutiny over how successful he will be in managing both the State Department bureaucracy and its relations with Donald Trump and his administration.Senior State Department officials who have attended meetings with Tillerson say they find him sociable and a man of substance, whose direct manner and probing questions reflect his training as an engineer seeking to solve problems rather than play politics.The veteran oil executive also made a good impression on his first foreign trip to a Group of 20 summit in Bonn, Germany, last week. Four senior diplomats who met him told Reuters they were relieved to find that he was pragmatic and open to dialogue.Yet a key concern for U.S. diplomats is how effective his team can be in shaping foreign policy in the new administration. Just two State Department positions of 116 key posts requiring executive branch nomination have been filled, according to the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Service – Tillerson’s and that of U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.For example, Tillerson still has no deputy after Trump rejected his top choice, Elliott Abrams.”People want to back him,” one veteran senior official said about the former Exxon Mobil boss. “But people are feeling that this building is being stripped,” said the official, referring to a sense that with so many top positions vacant, the State Department is not fully equipped to help make policy in the new administration.There is also unease over possible deep staff cuts and the future of some departments. Two people said employees in the Bureau of Management and Resources were told to apply for other positions within the State Department. Hammond, Tillerson’s aide said no decision had been taken to close that division.In or out of the loop?On one recent matter of longstanding U.S. foreign policy, Tillerson appeared to be sidelined.On Feb. 14, while Tillerson was at a dinner with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a State Department dining room, news headlines emerged suggesting the United States was backing away from supporting a two-state solution for Israelis and Palestinians.The two-state solution is the bedrock of the international community’s policy for a settlement between Israel and the Palestinians, but Trump suggested last week he was open to abandoning it if both sides agree.”No one had been informed of any changes in policy and the Secretary was about to leave on his first major trip,” said one senior State Department official, referring to Tillerson’s visit to Bonn.Tillerson’s acting deputy Tom Shannon also did not take part in Trump’s meeting with Netanyahu at the White House the following day when his boss was on his way to Europe, according to one U.S. official.It was unclear whether Tillerson had been left out of the loop deliberately or by accident, said two officials.A White House official told Reuters he did not know whether Tillerson was briefed in advance. In response to broader concerns about communication between the State Department and the new administration, he said both coordinated “very well.””There are open lines of communications in both directions,” the official, who declined to be named, said. “The White House and the State Department coordinate closely across a full range of issues that concern both organizations.”To be sure, on another important issue, Tillerson had his say in persuading Trump to back Washington’s stance on “One China” policy, which acknowledges Beijing’s position that Taiwan is part of it. Trump has in the past appeared to question whether the United States would continue to respect that.Hammond said Tillerson was on the phone with Trump several times a day. “This is the general style of the president to have quick check-ins with people, get people’s advice on things,” he said. “Information for CEOs flows up, and as a former CEO (Tillerson) understands that.”Tillerson has said little publicly since he started and his aides are quick to draw a contrast between him and predecessor John Kerry, a former senator and presidential candidate who reveled in extensive foreign travel and deal making.”Tillerson is not John Kerry, it is unfair to compare the two,” said Hammond. “He will quietly go about his job as a counselor and advisor to the president.”For Tillerson’s State Department the concern is how to maintain a similar degree of communication with an administration grappling with a succession of crises, nine officials involved in foreign policy and security issues, said.Over the past month the White House has faced legal setbacks over its immigration orders, the resignation of Trump’s national security adviser and an investigation into possible links between his campaign and Russian intelligence.Monday’s resignation of Michael Flynn, who served as Trump’s national security adviser for just 24 days, in particular created a vacuum at the National Security Council, which acts as a key partner for the State Department in formulating Washington’s foreign policy.last_img read more

Road to Monteverde to be paved

first_imgA main access road to Monteverde, one of the most popular tourist sites in Costa Rica, will be paved in its entirety, Public Works and Transport Minister Pedro Castro announced on Sunday.Castro said the ₡8 billion ($16 million) project awaits authorization from the Comptroller General’s Office. Once permission is granted, workers will replace 18 kilometers of gravel road with asphalt, from Guacimal to Monteverde, in the province of Puntarenas. Residents and businesses in the area, which is famous for its cloud forest, will benefit from the project, officials said.President Laura Chinchilla and Presidency Minister Carlos Ricardo Benavides joined Castro at the announcement, attended by local residents and business owners who gathered for the inauguration of a new fire station.The current gravel road to Monteverde is narrow and difficult to transit because the original Quaker founders from Alabama have fought to keep it that way to limit the number of visitors.The area’s most prominent landmark is the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, consisting of some 10,500 hectares of tropical rain and cloud forests, visited by some 75,000 tourists a year.The reserve has attracted many scientists over the years, as it has more than 2,500 plant species (including the most orchid species in a single place), 100 species of mammals, 400 bird species, 120 reptilian and amphibian species, and thousands of insects.

Qantas Cash makes overseas spending more rewarding

first_imgQantas Cash makes overseas spending more rewardingQantas Frequent Flyer members will be able to earn more Qantas Points when they spend money overseas using the card, as well as access more competitive exchange rates when they pre-load currency onto their Qantas Cash card.Qantas Cash users will earn 50 per cent more Qantas Points than they did previously, earning 1.5 Qantas Points for every $1 they spend in foreign currency (previously it was 1 Qantas Point for every $1 spent in foreign currency).For example, spending $7,500 overseas would deliver a reward of 11,250 Qantas Points (up from 7,500 points previously), which is enough for an Economy Classic Flight Reward from Sydney to Melbourne.Qantas Cash is built into their existing Qantas Frequent Flyer card, making it a convenient way for members to carry cash while they travel and one less card to carry.“As Australia starts to experience cooler climes, we see more Qantas Cash users escape overseas in search of some summer sun so we’ve increased their opportunity to earn more points and access better exchange rates on preloaded foreign currency,” said a Qantas spokesperson.“Going on holiday overseas can be expensive with most of us generally spending more than we would at home. We want Frequent Flyers to know they can get great value using their Qantas Cash card. They have the flexibility to lock in their exchange rate before they go or simply load it with Australian dollars and use it worldwide.”The improvements come in time for the peak travel season when Australians head overseas to enjoy summer in the Northern Hemisphere. From June to September, there is an increase of more than 50 per cent in foreign currency spend on Qantas Cash cards compared to the previous three months.The top destinations where Qantas Frequent Flyers are spending the most using theirQantas Cash card are:US,UK,Italy, andFrance.

Her death was initially classified as a drowning.The case was reopened in 2011 and after a subsequent news conference more than 100 people came forward with information that helped re-create the timeline, but that had reduced to a trickle for the last year and a half, Corina said.“When the tips all dry up, then I guess we move on to the next case,” he said.Corina said it remains a suspicious death investigation and not a murder case and that Wagner is a person of interest.“He’s a person of interest because he was the last person with her, before she went in the water,” Corina said.Wagner has refused to talk to detectives conducting the reopened investigation, Corina said, noting that the actor has the right to do so.Wagner’s attorney, Blair Berk, issued a statement five years ago saying that neither Wagner nor his daughters had any new information and blaming people for trying to exploit an anniversary of Wood’s death.“Mr. Wagner has fully co-operated over the last 30 years in the investigation of the accidental drowning of his wife in 1981,” Berk said at the time. “Mr. Wagner has been interviewed on multiple occasions by the Los Angeles sheriff’s department and answered every single question asked of him by detectives during those interviews.”Wagner’s publicist, Alan Nierob, declined to comment Thursday.___AP reporter John Antczak contributed to this report.center_img by Michael Balsamo, The Associated Press Posted Feb 5, 2018 12:39 pm PDT Last Updated Feb 5, 2018 at 4:17 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Natalie Wood’s 1981 death was initially classified as a drowning, after she was found floating in the waterThe case was reopened in 2011 and after a subsequent news conference more than 100 people came forward with information actress|death|investigation|natalie woodlast_img read more

Auditorgeneral takes on CyTA over past sins

Auditorgeneral takes on CyTA over past sins

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouUSING surprisingly blunt language, Auditor-general Odysseas Michaelides yesterday slammed the board of state telecoms company CyTA for consciously attempting to cover up the alleged wrongdoings of previous boards.In a letter to board chairman Christos Patsalides, dated June 24th, Michaelides referred to an earlier letter from May, in which he asked the board to investigate the actions of previous administrations that may have led to the loss of money, leading to possible criminal or civil liability. Patsalides’ letter of response appears to have left Michaelides underwhelmed as he suspected an attempted cover-up.“We received a response on June 13, which made no mention of any improper decisions on the previous board’s part, not even areas for improvement,” Michaelides told state radio on Thursday. “It’s as if this board was answering on behalf of the previous one, painting a rosy picture where everything was done perfectly well. We cannot accept such a picture.”Michaelides referred to a similar process is being followed by CyTA employees’ pension fund administrators, who are currently investigating the behaviour of the previous administration with a view to uncovering any misconduct. The pension fund has been involved in the notorious ‘Dromolaxia scandal’, in which land was bought illegally from the Turkish Cypriot owner to build a large office complex and various people received kickbacks to help grease the wheels.“Our suggestion to investigate possible wrongdoing by members of the previous Board of Directors was clear,” the Auditor-general told Patsalides. “Determining the specific issues in which there has been abuse of power (which would constitute a criminal offence by members of the board) , as well as actions or omissions that may have led to financial losses by CyTA (which would incur civil liability for members of the board) must be carried out by the Board of Directors.”Elsewhere in the letter, Michaelides clearly accused the current administration of actively trying to let members of the previous board off, warning that explanations would be called for.“I presume that your decision to offer full cover to the members of the previous board by adopting their decisions as unimpeachable (as objections on your part to decisions made by the previous board are nowhere to be found) is a conscious one, based on your review of all available information,” Michaelides said. “I also expect that you will be in a position to explain your decision before the Parliamentary Committee that will discuss our report.”Another point that appeared to have met the Auditor-general’s disapproval was the appropriation of CyTA’s advertising budget. Unsound and shady advertising deals were reported in the Auditor-general’s initial letter, which Patsalides glossed over in his response, Michaelides charged.“As we consider this matter a serious one and our Service intends to investigate it in depth, we record your position and note your responsibility for it, advising you that we will revisit the issue after conducting the relevant investigation,” he warned.Michaelides’ finger-wagging extended to the planned expansion of CyTA’s Greek arm – Cyta Hellas – ventures into the Greek telecommunications market, with the introduction of mobile telephony services, which have not been appropriately presented to the competent body. This matter, he said, touched not only the previous board but the incumbent one as well.“The law is clear,” Michaelides said in his letter. “Any arguments in support of your decision to introduce Cyta Hellas into the mobile telecommunications services industry in Greece must be made before the competent Ministerial Committee. Informing the Finance Minister instead will clearly not suffice. I need not note the responsibility incurred by a Board of Directors that opts to ignore and overlook legislative provisions.”According to consultant reports cited by CyTA, one of the major hindrances to Cyta Hellas’ penetrating the Greek market is its inability to offer combined landline and mobile services. The reports also project Cyta Hellas’ value to increase by €60 million over the next ten years.CyTA’s pay-TV arm, Cytavision, did not escape the Audit Service’s scrutiny. In his May letter, Michaelides had pointed out to CyTA’s board that no expenditure must be undertaken if its financial return cannot be substantiated in advance. In his response letter, Patsalides argued in favour of keeping Cytavision alive, which caused Michaelides to reiterate his initial observation.“At no point did we suggest discontinuing the Cytavision service,” he clarified. “We pointed out the lack of transparency with regard to the process and the criteria set in the selection of sports clubs with which broadcasting arrangements have been agreed, and that the comparison of the amounts agreed with expected returns appears not to follow sound business rationale. Therefore, what we suggested is the immediate redesign of Cytavision’s strategy.”Asked for comment on state TV, Patsalides tried to play down the Auditor-general’s accusations and diffuse the crisis. Michaelides simply jumped the gun and came to the wrong conclusions, he said.“There is no way this board, under my chairmanship, to take a decision that is not governed by proper management, transparency and lawfulness,” he said. “Most of the Auditor-general’s observations relate to the previous board and my intention has never been to go after the previous board before their decisions have been reviewed and assessed.”But Patsalides also sought to counter Michaelides’ criticism by explaining his stance with regard to the two major points raised.“The major issue raised by the Auditor-general is the Pension Fund,” he said. “I’d like to point out that the head of the fund and the head of CyTA is the same person. So I can’t be accused of running a serious, thorough and transparent investigation in one case while trying to keep another in the dark.”“The second serious matter is Cytavision,” Patsalides added. “An external consultant has been tasked with looking into this matter and will soon submit conclusions. The Auditor-general knows this, he has been fully informed.”But in any case, Patsalides said, CyTA’s new board has yet to come across any evidence pointing to wrongdoing by the previous board. If any comes up, “all necessary measures” will be taken.“Based on everything we have seen up to now, there is nothing that warrants further investigation, but we won’t stop there,” he said. “We are already analysing each and every advertising disbursement and will make any corrections necessary.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
