King Mohammed VI Summons Partys Leaders to Discuss Rif Protests Medias

Rabat – King Mohammed VI summoned leaders of Moroccan political parties to the Royal Palace for a special meeting, according to news outlet Alyaoum24.Sources quoted by Moroccan newspaper Alyaoum24 reported that the king summoned the heads of Morocco’s political parties to an impromptu meeting today in Rabat to discuss the now seven-month-old Hirak movement.  Many have called for the King’s intervention to put an end to the ongoing and escalating protests regarding conditions in the Rif region.The information has not been confirmed by official sources, and Morocco World News could not independently verify the veracity of these reports. On Wednesday, the coalition government broke its silence and issued a communiqué, acknowledging the demonstrators’ rights to protest regarding “legitimate” social demands.“The majority parties of the government have again emphasized the right of protests to express legitimate social demands in accordance with legal procedures,” said the coalition following a meeting with the Head of Government, Saad Eddine Othmani, and Minister of State in charge of Human Rights, Mustapha Ramid.Just a few days ago, the mother of leading activist Nasser Zafzafi implored King Mohammed VI to release her son, arrested by police on May 29. “We’re simple people, we have nothing, we own nothing, and our children are unemployed. We just want the King to serve us justice.”The seven months of protests came following the death in October of Mouhcine Fikri, a fishmonger who was fatally crushed in a garbage truck trash compactor while attempting to retrieve merchandise confiscated and thrown away by authorities.The coalition government has been criticized for its insufficient response to the tensions in Al Hoceima. After having been accused of receiving foreign backing and “drifting towards separatism,” outraged protesters staged a large-scale march denying the charges and reiterating their demands for social and economic development.Last week, a high ministerial delegation led by Minister of Interior, Abdelouafi Laftit, traveled to Al Hoceima to “speed up development programs.”However, tensions have grown over the past few days following the police’s pursuit and arrest of Nasser Zafzafi.Zafzafi was taken into custody on Monday after interrupting a Friday sermon that he viewed as denouncing the “Harak” movement. He was subsequently transferred to Casablanca for investigation, and has since been charged with “obstructing the right of worship” and “undermining state security.”Zafzafi, along with 30 other protesters arrested for alleged violence against security forces in Al Hoceima, are reportedly expected to appear in court on Monday at Casablanca’s Criminal Chamber of the Court of Appeal.Edited by Elisabeth Myers read more

Defects to turnkey homes will be fully rectified soon CHPA

Dazzell explained that correction works had “a bit of delay over some administrative issues, but that is done, so this programme will be fully completed before the end of the week.”The previous government had constructed approximately 200 turnkey homes at Perseverance site. As a consequence of the defects, despite allocating more than 100 per cent of these homes to beneficiaries, less than 50 per cent are occupied. All 200 of buildings would have seen some amount of corrective work being administered on them.Dazzell explained that as the CH&PA has been correcting the defects, occupancy has been steadily increasing. “The level of occupancy has been rising, every day we have two, three persons moving in,” he said. With the 100 completion of all the works, Dazzell said that the CH&PA expects that, “we would definitely see the whole area populated with all persons (home owners) coming back on board.”In 2011, the previous administration commenced the construction of the turn-key houses in several housing schemes, namely Providence, Eccles, Mon Repos, Good Hope, Zeelugt and Leonora. The programme had also catered for 1000 of these homes, costing $4.9M each, (the house costing $4.4M and the land costing $500,000) at Perseverance. read more

Battle of Crete commemorated in NSW

first_imgThe Martin Place Cenotaph on Saturday 16 April played host to a thousand members of the Greek and broader community who came to pay their respects and to remember one of the legendary campaigns in modern history, 75 years ago.What made this day special was the coming together of representatives from Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Canada and Greece to remember the heroes of a joint Greece – Allied defence of Crete. The Commonwealth Government have identified the Battle of Crete as one of significance during the Centenary of ANZAC commemoration events.The day commenced with six ‘Evzones’ – soldiers of the Greek Presidential Guard, the highest level of military guard in Greece – marching through Sydney to join the ceremony to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Crete. This was the first ever appearance of the guards in Australia, adding a sense of aura to the occasion. The guards visited Sydney as guests of the Hellenic Club Sydney, who had to secure special permission from the Greek Prime Minister. The guards marched with a Sydney police escort, stopping traffic as they marched from the Grace Hotel (York Street) to Martin Place, where the official memorial service was held. The Evzones also appeared in Martin Place on the 20th, 21st and 22nd for a changing of the guard ceremony in front of the Sydney Cenotaph. This was also a historic moment for Greek – Australian relations.Graham Athaunaseris, Chairman of the Cultural Committee of the Hellenic Club Sydney told Neos Kosmos, “The Battle of Crete was one of the key conflicts of the Second World War.” His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley, Governor of New South Wales attended this ceremony, placing the first wreath. There were approximately 100 wreath layers consisting of official representatives of the NSW and Australian Parliaments, Consulates General , Australian military officers and Anzac families and schools. Surviving Anzacs of the Anzac Centenary that served in Greece and Crete were also present. Underlining the sense of this historic occasion, Lieutenant General Konstantinos Gkatzogiannis, Chief of Staff of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff, addressed the gathered public on behalf of a grateful Greek nation.Secretary for the Joint Committee for the Commemoration of the Battle of Crete & The Greek Campaign, Nick Andriotakis told Neos Kosmos: “1686 Anzacs were killed defending Democracy Freedom and Greece. Over half of them were never recovered or their names identified. They lie in the sacred soil of which holds all the defenders of Greece from Leonidas to the Anzacs and beyond.”Most Australians that fell during battle in Crete are buried in the British and Commonwealth War Cemetery at Suda Bay, on the northern coast of Crete. The memorial that stands in honour of the Australians is called Stavromeni. The Cemetery has received visits from thousands of Australians over the years and it is one battle that is commemorated in Crete, and by the Australian, New Zealand and British Embassies every year.The sombre and special occasion came to a fitting conclusion with the playing of the Australian and Greek National anthems by the assembled military band.This commemoration is just one of the many planned events to remember the Battle of Crete. A further 12 events have been arranged including the annual Battle of Crete Ball, Ramsgate RSL sub-Branch Annual Anzac Dinner which commemorates the Battles of Greece and Crete at Ramsgate RSL which was held on 22 April and the Exhibition, “Anzacs in Greece THEN and NOW.” The exhibition will continue until 30 September at the National Maritime Museum, Darling Harbour. Lieutenant General Konstantinos Gkatzogiannis giving a speechChanging the course of history The Battle of Crete and the battle for Greece which began with Mussolini’s defeat by Greek forces in late 1940 arguably changed the course of the war, and confounded Allied war strategists who had all but given up on Greece. Indeed, the actions of the Greeks led Winston Churchill to declare to the UK Parliament: “Greeks do not fight like heroes, heroes fight like Greeks”, in reference to the fact that Hellenic forces held out the Italians and Germans over the colder months of 1940-1941. Whilst most of continental Europe was occupied by the Nazi vermon, the Greek forces fought bravely despite being outnumbered and fighting with weapons from a bygone era. Hitler had to delay his Russian offensive to deal with the Greeks, and in the process gave precious time to Stalin to twist the fortunes of war to his advantage by preparing for battle during the following year’s brutal winter months. By May 1941, mainland Greece was overrun by the Germans, and they needed only two weeks to secure their stranglehold over Crete. The invasion, which was launched on May 20, however was no cakewalk; for the German casualties were far greater than the Allies. Incoming airborne paratroopers were gunned down by waiting Allies and the brave local population. The first day’s battle was intense and German casualties high. Hitler became reluctant to use paratroopers to invade enemy territories thereafter. Had the Allied Commander, General Freyburg of New Zealand, launched a counter attack on day 2 of the battle, the Germans (according to historian Antony Beevor) would have been defeated. History tells us that poor leadership ensured that this did not happen and Crete would ultimately be lost, but not without the heroics of Allied troops and the local population. Australian forcesThe Aussies were represented by the Australian 19th Brigade Group and the Artillery Battery unit. Almost 40 per cent of Australian troops that fought across Greece during 1940-1941 were either killed or taken prisoner. Prime Minister Robert Menzies had said that the fight in Greece and Crete “was a great risk in a good cause.”Throughout the Battle and the subsequent resistance, Cretans were ferocious in the defence of their island displaying a sense of patriotism that has always been the hallmark of Crete throughout their history.ANZAC troops earned undying praise for their tenacity and courage When the Royal Navy pulled out as many of the Allies from Crete as they could on May 30 and 31, hundreds of Australians were left behind, and in true ANZAC spirit, took it upon themselves to form part of the resistance. The Cretans, at risk of certain death from the Germans, would shelter and protect Australians fighting in the resistance. The bonds that were forged would never be broken.My Kombaro knows this to be only too true. His next door neighbour in Sydney as a kid was an Australian veteran of the battle. He, like many others, was stranded in Crete after the evacuation and was kept safe by the Cretans, who also ensured his safe passage off the island. George recanted to me the story of when his father first met this grateful World War Two veteran: “Upon hearing of our Cretan roots, he told him: ‘I owe my life to the people of Crete. If there is anything I can do for you, do not hesitate to ask’.”It should be noted that over 25,000 people across Greece would go on to be executed by the Nazis for helping or sheltering Allies during the German occupation.At one stage, during the Cretan occupation there were approximately 75,000 Nazis on the island. It is truly a testament to the inhabitants of Crete and the ANZACs who continued the fight against such overwhelming odds.The 75th anniversary, just like every anniversary moving forward, will never forget the heroism of the people who fought to protect Crete, Greece and liberty.“Anzacs in Greece THEN and NOW” exhibition on now at the National Maritime Museum, 2 Murray Street Darling Harbour, Sydney For more information head to*Billy Cotsis is a frequent visitor to Crete and a Sydney based writer Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

PCB rules out immediate return of tainted duo

first_imgThe Pakistan Cricket Board has ruled out an immediate first-class return for the tainted duo of Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif, saying that they would have to attend further anti-corruption rehabilitation programs to regain the PCB’s trust.Najam Sethi, Chairman of the PCB’s influential executive committee, said the Board had planned special rehabilitation programs for the two players whose spot-fixing bans expire on September 1, allowing them to return to cricket. Sethi revealed that there were lots of players including some members of the Pakistan team, who were not happy that Butt, Asif or Mohammad Aamir should be rehabilitated back to top cricket. “I don’t think they have to go into first class cricket straightaway when the ban ends. They will have to attend the rehabilitation program of the PCB for two to three months,” Sethi said on Geo Super channel. “We had written to the ICC seeking clarification on some points and they have in reply left it to the PCB to complete the rehabilitation process of these players.” Also Read – A league of his own!Asked about the players who were not happy to see the tainted trio coming back, Sethi declined to take names but said even former Test captain Ramiz Raja had mentioned this in a recent column. “Obviously we have to talk to these players, convince them and give them time to develop trust once again in the players coming back. The PCB itself needs to be very sure that they wouldn’t repeat the past because what happened in 2010 in England was very embarrassing and damaging for Pakistan cricket,” Sethi said.  Also Read – Domingo named new Bangladesh cricket coachPCB to launch logo of long-awaited PSL next monthThe Pakistan Cricket Board said it would launch the official logo of its much-delayed Twenty20 Super League on September 19. A top official, however, said a decision on the venue for hosting the five-team franchise tournament would be taken in two weeks time.“We have two options either hold the PSL as planned in February in Doha or wait until April and host it in Dubai and other venues in the UAE,” he said. He said a recent visit to Dubai to meet the officials there to discuss the use of venues had failed to yield results since in February the Masters championship was being held in Dubai. “They have given us the option of hosting it in April. Our delegation also went to Qatar where their national Olympic committee and cricket association were very welcoming and keen to host the PSL.“Qatar is staging major international events now but cricket has remained out of their calendar but now they want cricket as well and their officials assured us they would offer all cooperation and help to make the PSL a big success in Qatar,” the official said. “Their Olympic committee and cricket association also told us they have got government permission to have the PSL with us,” he said.

Strong maritime cluster helps keep island on the shipping map

first_imgWith the 11th largest flag in the world, Cyprus has a well developed industry that services companies from around the world reports Andria KadesLocated at the crossroads of three continents, Cyprus has historically played a role in the region’s trade, which has been built on in more modern time to create a shipping industry that is now the 11th biggest in the world.Currently employing about 4,500 people on the island, with some 140 shipping companies registered here, Cyprus is one of the biggest shipping centres in Europe, Eberhard Koch, German CEO and partner at Oesterreichischer Lloyd, told the Cyprus Mail.Contributing approximately €1bn per year, shipping accounts for seven per cent of Cyprus’ GDP with a fleet of 1,000 ocean going vessels of a gross tonnage exceeding 23 million.See also: A history of forward planningThe department of merchant shipping (DMS) says it took a lot of work to get Cyprus to where it is today and the hard work continues maintaining and improving those standards.While the industry started in the 1960s it was around 30 years later that a lot of work was involved in making sure there was a quality fleet attached to Cyprus’ flag. Shortly after the creation of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber (CSC), comprised of well-organised professionals, the relationship between the department of merchant shipping and the industry went from strength to strength.Cyprus is already one of the biggest ship management centres, which provides a sufficient incentive to draw other companies to consider setting up operations here, said Prabhat Jha, Group Managing Director of Cyprus-based MSC Shipmanagement Limited.“There is a strong maritime cluster,” Jha said.Tax in cyprus is based on how much is being carriedThe tonnage tax system applied in Cyprus is one of the key attractions for shipping companies. Tonnage tax is a method of calculating tax based on the tonnage of vessels, rather than on corporate earnings and Cyprus is one of many countries that have such as system.According to Koch, Cyprus’ flag is appreciated worldwide, spanning from the US to Australia and other major ports.Additionally, the fact that the registry is done in a government department offers companies a sense of security, the DMS said.“It’s a guarantee from the state and not a private company. Although it might require a longer procedure, overall it poses a lower risk compared to other countries.”Furthermore, companies are also attracted to Cyprus’ broader tax system, with a corporate tax rate of 12.5 per cent.Cyprus also has a supportive government, legal and audit firms aplenty and a healthy supply of talent for recruitment into shipping companies, Jha said and it helps that the people on the island are very friendly too.It is quite telling that after the financial crisis hit the island in 2013 the shipping industry emerged quite unscathed.See also: Our View: Shipping industry robust because ignored by politiciansThis is largely because shipping companies are well known for planning ahead for all eventualities, Jha said.“It is a very proactive industry. We have to be prepared for bad weather. You don’t just decide on what action to take when the bad weather hits. You prepare beforehand.”Comprehensive risk management teams helped many shipping companies survive the financial crisis that hit the island, particularly in the aftermath of the bailout.“At MSC we manage nearly 200 ships from our Limassol office which are all over the world. We don’t have exposure to the local market and thus were not affected at all,” Jha said.“Shipping was the probably the only industry hiring when others were firing.”Looking to the future, Koch believes Limassol “could be the bright star of the Mediterranean.”“Cyprus is at a crossroad of three continents. It is also the first EU country next to the Suez Canal and this could make it a huge hub in the future – possibly why Dubai is investing in the port,” he added.Comprehensive legal frameworks covering all facets, including pirate legislation is available to companies registering on the island.“We have a good system here,” Koch said, which includes that when passing through Cape Horn through the Indian Ocean approaching the ports in Sri Lanka or India, there are armed guards on board to protect the crew, vessel and cargo from pirates, in addition to UN ships in the area.“There are companies in Cyprus that are offering armed guards,” Koch said, however this is not something unique to Cyprus.What would really push the industry would be a lifting on the Turkish embargo on the Cyprus flag, he added. A long-standing problem, the industry believed this would have been resolved with a solution to the Cyprus problem “but that’s off the table now.”“What we need to do more of is to promote Cyprus abroad more.“It saddens me that in northern European they don’t even know what Cyprus is,” and this is really where the government should be pushing to promote the island to,” Koch said.As of right now, Cyprus faces strong competition from Shanghai and Dubai, he added.See also: Seeking growth in stormy waters, ‘We compete with other countries not each other’You May LikeGundry MD ProPlant Complete Shake SupplementCalling All Carnivores: This Surgeon Says Do Not Cut Out Red Meat!

Larnaca tourism board seeks to host weddings at castle

first_imgThe Larnaca Tourism Board (Etap) said on Wednesday they have asked permission from the antiquities department to use the town’s medieval castle to host weddings.The request, for civil marriages, was discussed during a meeting between Etap and director of the Department of Antiquities Marina Solomidou-Ieronymidou.In a written statement, Etap said that its chairman and the mayor of Larnaca argued that such an action would “give a competitive advantage by contributing to the increase in civil marriages” of couples visiting from abroad. They also gave reassurances that there would be strict observance of all regulations for the protection of the monument.The antiquities department however, has expressed reservations “both for matters concerning existing legislation and for issues of protection of the monuments.”Etap asked the department to re-examine the issue while setting strict conditions for the protection of the area.Larnaca attracts many tourists each year that arrive specially to have their civil marriages officiated there.During the meeting the two sides also discussed delays in the renovation of the Larnaca Archaeological Museum, which remains closed since May 2017, and the issue “of the unique mosaic” on Ayios Neophytos street that depicts the Labours of Hercules and believed to be a bath of the Roman period.The mosaics were uncovered in Larnaca in 2016 during roadworks.“According to the antiquities department, the proposal for the expropriation of the abandoned neighbouring residence, the demolition of which will allow excavations to continue to reveal the remainder of the mosaic, has been pending for a year and a half before the department of lands and surveys,” it said.Etap’s chairman, Dinos Lefkaritis stressed it was imperative to utilise the promotion of the archaeological wealth of the country to benefit tourism and the local economy.You May LikeSelect Ghostwriters: Affordable USA Writers for Your Book or NovelSelect GhostwritersSelect Ghostwriters: Affordable USA Writers for Your Book or NovelUndoKwhenAwesome 37 Concerts to See in Los Angeles this monthKwhenUndoKayak.comFind Cheap Flights – Search 100s of Travel Sites at OnceKayak.comUndo Cypriot ambassadors gather in Nicosia for annual briefingUndoBritain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoCyprus’ Dothraki warriorUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
