We hope the appeal court will overturn this decision and set him free”.His conviction was under Article 111 paragraph 433 of the 1969 criminal code, which laid down prison sentences of up to five years for defamation. The fact that the jurist belongs to a family of “24 martyrs” of Saddam Hussein’s regime was taken into account by the judge as extenuating circumstances. His lawyer, Govend Baban, told Reporters Without Borders that the article in the criminal code could only be applied in the case of a complaint by an individual and not to a case brought by a public ministry, as was the case. He added that the court in Erbil was not competent to try the case, because the offending articles were published in Austria. His client has anyway appealed against the verdict, which he called “unfair” and “political”.Kamal Sayid Qadir has been held since 26 October 2005 in Erbil prison in the autonomous region of Kurdistan in the north of Iraq. He was sentenced, on 19 December 2005, for “defamation of public institutions”, a ruling that was subsequently quashed. In a statement posted on kurdishmedia.com, the jurist acknowledged making comments that were “inappropriate” towards some people referred to in his articles.

first_imgBI has bought a total of Rp 172.5 trillion worth of government bonds, including Rp 166.2 trillion from foreign investors in the secondary market. “We will always be in the market to maintain liquidity,” Perry said.Although the rupiah has depreciated by 18.29 percent since the beginning of the year, Perry said the currency was moving in a good market mechanism and that exporters continued to supply foreign exchange to the market.“We also encourage importers and global investors that need US dollars to enter the DNDF market to hedge their funds and the premium is relatively cheap,” he said.As of 10.27 a.m., the rupiah traded at 16.402 per US dollar, down 0.57 percent.Topics : Foreign investors are slowly coming back to Indonesia as Bank Indonesia (BI) is seeing signs of an easing of the recent capital outflow from the country.BI Governor Perry Warjiyo said on Tuesday that the central bank recorded a total Rp 145.1 trillion (US$8.7 billion) of capital outflow throughout the first three months of this year. The figure consisted of a Rp 131.1 trillion outflow from government bonds and Rp 9.9 trillion from the stock market.The figure was much lower than the outflow BI recorded during the height of the coronavirus outbreak from Jan. 20 to March 30 that reached Rp 167.9 trillion, consisting of Rp 153.4 trillion from the bond market and Rp 13.4 trillion from the stock market. Although still recording an outflow, the central bank has started to see foreign investors coming back to the country with the volume of the outflow declining and the latest government bond auction oversubscribed.“The government absorbed Rp 22.2 trillion from the Rp 15 trillion indicative target from the auction because it received total bids of Rp 35.5 trillion,” Perry said during a video conference with the media.Perry attributed the easing outflow to the various economic stimulus packages and stabilization by the central bank.“The measures successfully subdued panic in the market despite the high levels of uncertainty,” he said during a video conference with the media. BI has been stabilizing the markets through its “triple market intervention” measures, focusing on the foreign exchange spot market, domestic non-deliverable forward (DNDF) and secondary bond markets.last_img read more

The Angolan made the most of the penalty-area contest for possession, falling easily after minimal contact between the rivals.It was sweet revenge for Angola who drew and lost to the same country in previous tournaments while Cameroon bowed out at the group stage after reaching the quarter-finals in two other appearances.Cameroon are the second “big name” football nation after the Ivory Coast to lose their opening two matches and be eliminated from the biennial tournament. Angola have four points and need one more from their final group fixture against Congo next Wednesday to be sure of reaching the knockout phase.Title favourites Morocco, Sudan, Zambia and Namibia have also reached the quarter-finals, leaving Nigeria, Rwanda, Libya, Angola and Burkina Faso to fight for the other three places.Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img Carof Bakoua had put Congo ahead on 67 minutes, tapping the ball into the net after Burkina Faso captain and goalkeeper Adama Sawadogo could only parry a header.Congo, who edged Cameroon during the first series of group games in a tournament for local-based footballers, have six points and are sure of a top-two finish with a game to play.Captain Ricardo “Job” Estevao converted a debatable penalty on 30 minutes to earn Angola a 1-0 victory in the first half of a double-header watched by about 10,000 spectators.Bertrand Owundi was judged to have fouled Va, one of many Angolans who prefer short Brazilian-style football names to their often lengthy official ones.last_img read more

first_imgThe county received eight bids for the project, with the highest at about $1.6 million. The county had estimated the project to cost $900,000 to $1 million.The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will reimburse the county 80 percent of the cost, or about $705,342, with the county and Atlantic Highlands splitting the remaining 20 percent, or about $88,168 each.The trail has remained open, but in what the Park System has described as a “primitive condition” of compacted soil. During the re-construction, that portion of the trail is to be closed.The Henry Hudson Trail runs for about 28 miles, using a combination of roads and unused railroad right-of-ways between Sandy Hook and Freehold. From Sandy Hook to Aberdeen, the trail also is known as the Bayshore Trail. By Joseph SapiaAN OCEAN COUNTY company has won a contract to restore an Atlantic Highlands section of the Henry Hudson Trail destroyed in 2012’s Super Storm Sandy.The Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners recently awarded the contract to the low-bidder, Compass Construction of Plumsted. Compass bid $881,677.In October 2012, Sandy’s 14-foot surge destroyed the wooden walkway and trail surfacing, along with the bluff, on a 1-1/4-mile section of the trail from the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor to Popamora Point on the Atlantic Highlands-Highlands boundary. The restoration work will include diverting runoff to Sandy Hook Bay under the trail to protect against erosion, resurfacing the trail with both pavement and stone dust, and rebuilding the walkway with prefabricated concrete.The work is to be completed in 100 days, but the actual start date, expected to be in September or October, has yet to be determined, said Joseph Sardonia, supervising landscape architect for the Monmouth County Park System.last_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 4, 2017)–Idle since breaking his maiden on Nov. 27, Royal Mo broke like a shot from the rail and dictated terms throughout as he scored an impressive 3 ½ length win in Saturday’s Grade III, 1 1/16 miles Robert B. Lewis Stakes at Santa Anita, thus stamping himself as a top tier Kentucky Derby candidate.  Ridden by Victor Espinoza, owned by Jerry and Ann Moss and trained by John Shirreffs, the imposing bay colt by Uncle Mo got the distance in 1:43.48.“I was very happy with how he ran, the pace, the fractions, having that horse (Irap, with Mario Gutierrez) outside of him, hooking him a little bit, so I think he showed a lot of character,” said Shirreffs, who also conditions recent Grade III Sham Stakes winner Gormley for the Mosses.“You take it as it comes (referring to what might be next for his two talented sophomores).  Obviously, you don’t really want to run them together.  We’ll just have to see how it goes.  I haven’t spoken with Mr. Moss about that, so we’ll see.”A gate to wire maiden winner at one mile, Royal Mo faced stakes competition for the first time today and was off at 3-2 in a field of five, paying $5.00, $3.40 and $2.20.  With the win, he also picked up 10 Kentucky Derby qualifying points and a check for $90,000, which brings his earnings to $144,200.  Second in his first two races sprinting, Royal Mo now has two wins from four starts.“He’s such a big horse, he doesn’t have that quickness for the first couple of strides,” said Espinoza.  “As soon as he gets into rhythm though, he’ll keep going…He’s improving a lot.  From the last few races to this race, he’s really coming along.  He’s going in the right direction.  Hopefully, we keep going that way.”Moss, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, who gained worldwide notoriety as the owner of the legendary Zenyatta, also teamed with Shirreffs to win the 2005 Kentucky Derby with longshot Giacomo.“We haven’t had two horses (Royal Mo and Gormley) in this position in a long time and it’s fun,” said Moss.  “I’ll have to talk to John, but I think we’ll go to Arkansas with one and stay here with the other.  (Royal Mo) is almost 17 hands, but he’s still got some growing to do…We really don’t see anyone coming up that scares us…This horse has been working great and the Derby is a great thing to dream about.”One of three Doug O’Neill trainees, Irap pressed the winner throughout and held off favored Sheer Flattery by a neck for second money.  Off at 4-1, Irap paid $4.20 and $2.60.“I think pace makes the race and the first half wasn’t overly quick,” said O’Neill.  “When you give a horse like Royal Mo an uncontested lead you’re going to be in trouble.”Third turning for home, Sheer Flattery, who was ridden by Mike Smith, never threatened the winner while finishing 2 ¼ lengths in front of Term of Art.  Off at 7-5, Sheer Flattery paid $2.20 to show.Fractions, all set by the winner, were 23.86, 47.37, 1:11.50 and 1:36.84.The second, third and fourth place finishers received four, two and one Kentucky Derby qualifying points.last_img read more
