The deadline for the offer is 4 March.Norilsk Nickel and Rusal could not be reached for immediate comment.Rusal’s decision to keep the stake means that the marathon fight for control of Norilsk Nickel between tycoons Oleg Deripaska and Vladimir Potanin will continue.The next round is set for 11 March, when Norilsk Nickel will hold an EGM to elect a new board.Deripaska controls 25 per cent of the company through Rusal, while Potanin holds the same amount via his Interros investment group.

first_img Director of Music Morristown, NJ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York [Episcopal News Service] In a preliminary decision, a California court has ordered the return of 27 properties held by a breakaway group to the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin and has said that dioceses cannot opt to leave the Episcopal Church.St. James Cathedral, the former diocesan offices, the Episcopal Camp and Conference Center near Yosemite National Park, the diocesan investment trust and 25 other church properties, valued at about $50 million, are included in the May 5 decision.In the 41-page opinion in a case  brought by the Episcopal Church and its Diocese of San Joaquin, Fresno County Superior Court Judge Donald S. Black also said that “because a diocese is a geographical construct of the Church, it makes no sense that a diocese can ‘leave’ the Church; it does not exist apart from the Church.”While individuals may exercise their right of freedom of religion to leave and form a new church in another religious denomination, “they cannot tell the Church that it no longer has a diocese in a particular geographical area such as San Joaquin,” Black concluded.He also noted that church property is held in trust for the mission and ministry of the wider church. A former bishop lacked authority to transfer church property into the “Anglican Diocese Holding Corporation”, an entity created for the express purpose of preventing the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin access to it, according to the decision.San Joaquin Bishop Provisional David Rice said that while the ultimate result of the litigation “will inform and influence our exploration, our discernment, and yes, our prayers, it will not completely define who we are, nor how we respond missionally.”Rice, who was elected bishop provisional March 29, 2014, added that: “We are diligently working on deeper understandings of what it means to be welcoming, inclusive and reconciling.“We are exploring and discerning and praying through the ways in which we are being called to serve in our communities and to join God in what God is already doing in people’s lives. We have much to do as Episcopalians throughout this place called San Joaquin.”Diocesan chancellor Michael Glass said he believed Black’s decision to be one of the clearest and most comprehensive judicial explanations as to why a diocese cannot leave the Episcopal Church, “which we hope will be helpful to our fellow Episcopalians in the Diocese of Ft. Worth, the Episcopal Church in South Carolina, and the Diocese of Quincy.”“The court said the diocese did not and could not disaffiliate, because the accession of a diocese to the Church may not unilaterally be retracted,” Glass said. “It’s very clear that once you’re a diocese and you’ve acceded to the canons of the church, there’s no going back.”The decision will become final within the next sixty days or so, depending on whether the defendants will seek to have the trial court modify the decision from its tentative form, he said. Once the decision is finalized, the defendants will have approximately sixty days to file an appeal with the Fifth District Court of Appeal in Fresno.The Rt. Rev. Eric Menees, bishop of the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin, in a statement posted on the diocesan website, called for a May 17 meeting to discuss those options.“Please understand that, should this tentative ruling be formalized into a judgment, we will not have to immediately vacate our properties,” according to the statement. “Under these circumstances there will be time for an orderly departure.“Even if we were to accept the ruling and choose not to appeal, we believe there would be a window of time to negotiate the timing and manner in which the churches of the Diocese would surrender their property, allowing time for us to make plans for the future.”Glass said that the Episcopal diocese remains open to discussions with the defendants to address any pastoral concerns in any transitions resolving the property disputes.The disputes erupted over theological differences when Bishop David Schofield attempted to disaffiliate the diocese from the Episcopal Church in Dec. 2007.The House of Bishops deposed Schofield March 12, 2008. A month later, he transferred the diocesan property into a holding company he created, according to court documents.Meanwhile, property disputes involving three incorporated parishes have yet to be resolved. Trials are scheduled in two of the cases, concerning St. Paul’s, Visalia and St. John’s, Porterville, for November 20l4. A third property, St. Columba’s, Fresno, does not yet have a trial date.Other disputed properties have been returned to the diocese as a result of favorable court rulings, including: St. Michael’s, Ridgecrest; St. Paul’s, Bakersfield; St. John’s, Stockton; St. Francis, Turlock; Hope-Redeemer, Delano and St. James, Sonora. Another church, St. Paul’s, Modesto, was returned prior to litigation.–The Rev.

Property AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Bath, NC May 29, 2014 at 2:40 pm Let me express something, if a gardner works at a private estate can he claim he owns all the property? He is keeping it beautiful. And can the estate owner claim the wages of the gardner for he is workng his horticulture on the estate owner’ s land. Thus the gardner is the church seeking to breakaway from the Mother Church but not to forgo its Anglican worship. And the estate is the entire Episcopal Church of the United States. So I believe if the judgement says the church cannot breakaway from the National Episcopal Church and must surrender its lands and buildings the Mother Church has to pay the money value of the church building and lands of the parish to it before claiming new ownership. I ask the Courts to study this. There is no theocracy like in England. A church is the Body , Head and Bride of Jesus Christ. therefore it must stay Beautiful from his Holiness.It is His Creation , not even the greatest ideal of humanity could imagine It.

My hope is that the property is returned quickly and that the group that left the Episcopal Church can move forth with their relocation plans. Patience on both sides needs to be demonstrated, and it sounds like Bishop Rice and the original Episcopal Diocese will do whatever they can to do that. Being a lifelong Anglican, the Judge’s ruling is no more than I would expect-anyone who understands how the Episcopal Church is set up would not be surprised.

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Pork Wants U.S. Bilateral Trade Deal with Japan By Hoosier Ag Today – Jul 9, 2017 Pork Wants U.S. Bilateral Trade Deal with Japan SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter The European Union and Japan formally agreed to the outline of a free trade deal. America’s pork producers want to know why the U.S. is not moving on its own bilateral deal with Japan, the highest value market for U.S. pork exports. They say that, now that the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement has gone away, the U.S. needs to be moving forward quickly on a TPP-type of deal with Japan.Under the old TPP, Japan’s tariffs on pork would have been completely eliminated. When their agreement is fully in place, the E.U. will be able to sell pork at a lower tariff rate that will eventually disappear, making it harder for American pork to compete in the market. Other countries are moving ahead on bilateral trade agreements, and U.S. pork producers do not want to miss out on opportunities. “We’ve let the administration know they should focus on the Asian-Pacific area and start with Japan,” says Dave Warner of the National Pork Producers Council. “It’s the fastest growing area in the world.” Japanese consumers purchased $1.6 billion in U.S. pork, and demand is very strong in spite of tariffs and other measures that limit market access.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Previous articleCommentary: The Cost of Free TradeNext articleIBCA to feature “Cattlemen’s Choice” sandwich Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

first_img RSF_en The Minneapolis Star Tribune newspaper reported on 19 September that the St. Paul authorities will not after all prosecute the journalists who were picked up in the course of the mass arrests that took place in St. Paul, Minnesota, on 1 September during the Republic Party convention (see 2 September release).The newspaper quotes St. Paul mayor Chris Coleman as saying the city authorities have decided not to prosecute journalists charged with misdemeanour offences and that they will use a “very broad” definition of who, among the approximately 800 people arrested, is a journalist. Among those who will not be prosecuted are Amy Goodman, the host of Democracy Now!, and two of her reporters and producers, Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar, who were charged with unlawful assembly, obstructing the legal process and incitement to riot . They were also the victims of police violence.Reporters Without Borders welcomes the outcome, and hopes a similar decision is taken with ABC News producer Asa Eslocker, who was arrested and charged with trespassing, interference, and refusing to obey a lawful order during the Democratic Party convention in Denver on 27 August (see 29 August release). He is due to appear in court on 25 September._________________________________________2.09.08 – Call for withdrawal of charges against three journalists manhandled and arrested outside Republican Party conventionReporters Without Borders is outraged by the way Amy Goodman, the host of the nationally-syndicated radio and TV programme Democracy Now!, and two of her producers, Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar, were manhandled and arrested by police while covering demonstrations yesterday outside the Republican Party convention in St. Paul, Minnesota.The press freedom organisation calls for an investigation into the circumstances of their arrest and the immediate withdrawal of the charges brought against them. Although quickly released, Goodman was charged with obstructing a legal process and interfering with a police officer, while her two producers were charged with “felony riot.”“The violence used by the police when arresting these three journalists, who identified themselves as such, was an unacceptable abuse of authority, a violence of the First Amendment and a clear demonstration of a desire to intimidate them and their news organisation,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Democracy Now! has done a lot of very critical reporting about the war in Iraq and it is no coincidence that three of its representatives were treated like this,” the press freedom organisation added. “The confirmation of the charges against them compounds the original injustice with another one. The police should be investigating their own ranks.”The three journalists were arrested at about 5 p.m. during anti-war demonstrations being staged by veterans and relatives of soldiers killed in Iraq near the convention centre where the Republican Party is due to confirm Sen. John McCain as its candidate for November’s presidential election.Kouddous and Salazar were the first to be arrested by baton-wielding police. Kouddous was slammed against a wall and then pinned to the ground. Salazar was slammed to the ground. Kouddous sustained injuries to the chest and back. Salazar sustained injuries to her face.Goodman was arrested when she asked the police why they had arrested her colleagues. Although she identified herself as a journalist, her hands were handcuffed behind her back and then she was led away, as can be seen in a video sequence shot by a bystander (below). The three journalists were released a few hours later. An Associated Press photographer, Matt Rourke, was also arrested at the same time as several hundred demonstrators.A committed journalist who is very critical of the Republican government and especially the war in Iraq, Goodman launched her Democracy Now! in 1996. Produced in New York by a team of independent journalists, it is syndicated to more than 700 radio and TV stations in the United States and abroad.See the video : News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists United StatesAmericas September 22, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Charges will not be pressed against journalists arrested during Republican convention Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Help by sharing this information News NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say to go furthercenter_img News June 7, 2021 Find out more Organisation News April 28, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts United StatesAmericas June 3, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on United Stateslast_img read more

When the information turned out to be wrong, Mr. Nguema recognised this and apologised. Mr. Jaye nonetheless brought a libel suit against Mr. Nguema, demanding 5 million euros in damages, the amount he was alleged to have embezzled.Mr. Nguema was incarcerated in Black Beach prison on 17 July on the orders of Malabo investigating judge Agustin Chicampo because he was unable to post bail of 20 million CFA francs (30,000 euros). Since then, he has only been able to receive two visits from his wife. AFP and RFI say they have sent Mr. Nguema the money to pay the bail but there have been problems that have prevented the payment being made.We obviously hope this is not a deliberate ploy by the authorities to keep this journalist in prison. We point out that Mr. Nguema has not been tried and no date has so far been set for his trial. Reporters Without Borders believes that his detention is arbitrary, unjust and incomprehensible and we urge you to arrange for his immediate release.

Such statements can be used as evidence during trial.Incidentally, Goswami had moved the Bombay High Court on Thursday seeking a stay to the filing of charge sheet, but the petition is yet to be heard.Goswami, Sheikh and Sarda were arrested by Alibaug police on November 4 in the case, but they got bail from the Supreme Court on November 11.Anvay Naik and his mother Kumud committed suicide in 2018, allegedly because of non-payment of dues by firms of Goswami and other two accused.The case, closed for want of evidence in 2019, was reopened in May this year, with Goswami alleging that the Maharashtra government was pursuing a vendetta against him for his work as a TV journalist.Next Storylast_img
