Algeria Tunisia and Egypt Call for Diplomatic Solution to Conflict in

Rabat – Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt joined the latest push for military de-escalation on Wednesday June 12, issuing a joint statement calling for an “unconditional ceasefire” for the neighboring country of Libya.After a meeting in Tunis, foreign affairs ministers of Algeria, Tunisia, and Egypt expressed “deep concern” over the situation. The ministers issued a statement that denounced “the continuous flow of weapons” into Libya and rejected a military solution to the conflict. The three countries instead pushed for a political settlement to Libya’s continuing unrest.In 2011, Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown and killed in the NATO-backed Libyan Civil War. The power vacuum left the country in a growing state of instability, with multiple militias fighting for control of the oil-rich country. The ongoing conflict between factions turned Libya into a war-zone between rival forces.In 2015, the UN supported the establishment of the Government of National Accord (GNA). The internationally-recognized government is based in the Western half of the country and headquartered in Tripoli. The GNA’s primary opposition is the Libyan National Army (LNA), led by General Khalifa Haftar. The GNA established its own parallel government in the east, based in the city of Al Bayda. The battle marks the third time Libya has gone to war since the fall of dictator Muammar Gaddafi.Read Also: Bourita Says Stability of Libya is a Priority for MoroccoThe latest fighting began when General Haftar launched an attack on the GNA in Tripoli on April 4. Both the LNA and the defending GNA received weapons from their respective allies, which violated the UN’s arms embargo. This included neighboring Egypt, who supported the LNA.The battle for Tripoli devastated the capital, home to over a million residents. According to the World Health Organization, at least 653 people have been killed since the fighting escalated in April. Thousands have been injured, and over 50 thousand displaced from their homes. Despite the loss, General Haftar and the LNA rejected plans for a ceasefire. He claimed militias have infiltrated the GNA and vowed to continue fighting until they are defeated.While the violence in Tripoli continues, Foreign Ministers Sameh Shoukry of Egypt, Khemaies Jhinaoui of Tunisia, and Ramtane Lamamra of Algeria pushed for a diplomatic solution. At their meeting on Wednesday, the seventh in an ongoing tripartite initiative, the ministers renewed their “categorical rejection of any outside interference in Libya’s internal affairs” and called for continued cooperation between the three countries.The meeting was held a few days after United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for all countries to enforce a total arms embargo to Libya. The UN first imposed a ban on arms sales to Libya after the fall of Gaddafi in 2011. Following Guterres’s call on Monday, the UN unanimously approved to extend the embargo through June of 2020. The next gathering of the tripartite council will take place in Algeria, the date yet to be determined. read more

UN Human Rights Council adopts documents on disappearances and indigenous peoples

“I wanted to express how happy we are because we were able to have the first important, very substantive decisions of the new Council,” Ambassador of Mexico, Luis Alfonso de Alba, the newly elected President of the Council, told reporters in Geneva. The Council, which replaced the much-criticized Human Rights Commission, opened its first session on 19 June and this runs until tomorrow.The International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearances defines such actions as crimes and as crimes against humanity when they are widespread or systematic. The Convention, which focuses on preventive measures as well as the rights of victims, is now being forwarded to the General Assembly for final adoption. “In the case of the Convention on Disappearances, it’s an effort that very much touches the lives of many people, not only in Latin America, but also around the world…I think it is a very well deserved homage to the victims that the new Council’s first decision was to adopt the Convention, and without a vote,” said Mr. de Alba.Turning to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which had been debated for 11 years, the 47-member Council adopted this by a vote of 30 in favour, 12 abstentions and 2 against (3 absent). “In the case of the Declaration [on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples], I am also very happy, because it was a very long process of negotiations that have finally come to an end. It had been a very difficult process because we were forced to strike a balance between the interests of very different points of views from Governments and indigenous peoples.”“But finally we came to a compromise. This has shown how the majority of the Member States, as well as the very wide majority of indigenous populations, have come together for the benefit of the indigenous peoples around the world,” Mr. de Alba concluded.The Declaration will now be forwarded to the General Assembly’s September session.Some experts have said that the creation of legal standards and rules through the adoption of an international declaration would ensure respect for the human rights and fundamental freedoms of indigenous peoples. However some States have disagreed with the view that indigenous peoples should have the right to “self determination” and also other issues that have been proposed.Currently, the UN estimates that there are some 370 million indigenous peoples living in different parts of the world. read more

Families search for Shanghai stampede survivors

first_imgBEIJING — Chinese President Xi Jinping ordered an investigation Thursday into a stampede that left at least 36 people dead in Shanghai during a New Year’s Eve celebration as families desperately searched hospitals for survivors of the disaster.Witnesses described the New Year’s Eve crowd on the Bund — Shanghai’s landmark waterfront area — as being packed so tightly that people couldn’t move their arms and legs. Some said individuals were lifted off the ground and tossed about as waves of motion rippled through the throng.The stampede occurred at 11:35 p.m. Wednesday, according to authorities. The exact cause is unknown, and conflicting reports have emerged in its aftermath. At least 47 people were injured in the chaos.In an early account Thursday morning, state-run news agency Xinhua quoted a witness as saying the stampede began when people rushed to pick up what looked like U.S. currency tossed from a store on the third floor of a building on the Bund. The paper rectangles were actually coupons for a club.But witnesses at the New Year’s Eve celebration said the crowd had swollen to unsafe proportions even before the coupons dropped.A post on the social media account of the Shanghai police also dismissed the suggestion that the coupons prompted the stampede, suggesting it occurred before the paper notes were tossed to the crowd.last_img read more

Reed CEO Tad Smith Sale Neither Surprises Nor Worries Me

first_imgThe sale process will commence immediately, but it is unclear how long it will take to complete. For my part, I am committed to leading our business as your CEO during the sale process and thereafter. In the meantime, business will continue as usual and everyone’s jobs, benefits and pay will be unaffected.Reed Elsevier also announced a restructuring program this morning. RBI-US has a 7-year history of diligent cost and headcount management actions, including some taken earlier this year. At this time, RBI-US has no plans for a large scale layoff or other special headcount reduction program beyond the extreme care we continue to exercise on headcount additions.Tad Smith, CEO, RBI-USPlease read the attached communication from Reed Business CEO Gerard van de Aast for more information. REED BUSINESS CEO UPDATE February 2008Dear Reed Business colleagues,Let me first address the question why Reed Elsevier has decided to divest Reed Business Information (RBI). RBI is a well managed, high quality business. However its strategic fit with Reed Elsevier is less clear since Reed Elsevier has decided to move away from advertising driven revenue models and focus on subscription based models. It is important to note that this says nothing about the quality and attractiveness of our business and the markets we serve. On the contrary we are a strong, well run business and our markets offer many opportunities, particularly in the online space. RBI is well positioned and I would like to share with you my view on our business and my confidence that we will continue to do well under new ownership. Let’s start by summarizing our key assets and attributes.Attractive marketsThe B2B markets that we operate in show solid, sustainable, long term growth of around 5-6% per year. Our advertising customers need to promote their brands, generate leads, create awareness and support their products and services and our readers keep themselves up to date through our print and online content. Although marketing spend and reader behaviour is shifting, in particular to online, the value proposition that we offer is as strong as ever.Leading brandsWe own many of the leading brands in our markets. The list is long and impressive with franchises like Variety, Interior Design, EDN, New Scientist, Estate Gazette, Totaljobs, Elsevier, Boerderij, Stratégies, Australian Doctor and so on. All our brands have a rich heritage going back in many cases over decades, but even more importantly have an exciting future as well through our online developments which are starting to have a real impact in our markets and enrich our long established brands.Financial stabilityOur business has size, scale and financial stability. RBI’s revenue in 2007 was $1,709m with adjusted operating profits of $253m, cash conversion was 109% providing a stable and attractive cash flow. Size and scale also matter allowing us to effectively manage our business and fund new developments derived from continued scale benefits and savings. RBI employs 8,164 people.Clear strategyOur strategy has been very clear and effective. It is built around protecting our core print business, driving online growth and making sure we have the best people in the business. We have complemented this with targeted acquisitions. Our strategy is very effective given our results in 2007 and prior years. We now have over $500m of online revenue which grew by 30% versus prior year. We will continue with this successful strategy going forward.The best peopleMost important of all we have great people that are very much connected with the markets we serve. Be it in editorial, sales or support functions we have great strengths and competence. We also have made great progress in understanding and executing online business models. Combined, this will continue to be the bedrock of our success.Looking aheadIn the coming period, senior management together with Reed Elsevier will focus on finding the right new ownership for the business. We all can contribute to this by staying focussed on our business and deliver the results as before. Nothing changes in the short term and we should not be sidetracked by the divestment process.Reed ExhibitionsReed Exhibitions has pursued a very successful strategy in the last few years. This strategy, which focuses on organic growth enhanced by targeted acquisitions and development of our business in high growth economies (BRIC), has proven to deliver strong growth. In 2007 results again were good with revenue growth of 12%. Going forward we will continue with this strategy and add programs for online development which will become increasingly important. Reed Elsevier will continue to invest in the business and support the strategy. There is a Q&A specifically related to our exhibition business available to answer questions that might arise.I would like to thank you for a good 2007. All businesses in Reed Business met or exceeded their targets and delivered good growth. In particular Reed Exhibitions performed strongly and in publishing we did see continued strong growth in online.Although the publishing and exhibition businesses will go their separate ways, both are well positioned. I do understand that all this might raise questions including what it means for you personally. A list of frequently asked questions is available on your local intranet site and aREna today. I also encourage you to discuss concerns with your management. Communication will be straightforward and timely. When we have new information we will share it with you. Let me close by expressing my confidence in our future and give you my commitment that I will lead us through this process.Kind regards,Gerard van de AastCEO Reed Business The following memos were sent by Reed Business’ U.S. CEO Tad Smith and global chief Gerard van de Aast, regarding yesterday’s sale announcement:From: Smith, Tad (RBI-US)Sent: Wednesday, February 20, 2008 11:11 PMTo: RBI-US All Employees; RBI-US RCD – Canadian EmployeesSubject: IMPORTANT BUSINESS ANNOUNCEMENT FROM TAD SMITH AND ALSO ONE FROM GERARD VAN DE AASTAs many of you now know, our parent company Reed Elsevier announced this morning that it was putting Reed Business’ worldwide publishing business up for sale. Reed Elsevier no longer views advertising-dependent businesses as aligned with its growth strategy.The announcement this morning neither surprises nor worries me. We have a vibrant and exciting business that is successfully making the transition from print to online across dozens of market sectors in countries all around the world. There will be a healthy appetite for our business and your many contributions as staff members.last_img read more

Largest Eid congregation at Sholakia held peacefully

first_imgThe country’s largest Eid prayer gathering head peacefully at Kishoreganj Sholakia. Photo: Tafsilul AzizThe country’s largest Eid prayer gathering at Sholakia was held peacefully.The prayers began at 10:00am with over a hundred thousand devotees coming from different parts of Bangladesh and from abroad 2-3 days ahead of Eid to attend the historic Eid jamaat at the Sholakia Eidgah.It was the 190th Eid jamaat at the Sholakia grounds. The jamaat began following the customary blank fire at 10am. Chairman of Islahul Muslimeen Council and President of Jamaat-e-Ulema Maulana Md Fariduddin Masud conducted the Eid prayers this year. A special munajat was also be offered seeking divine blessings for peace, development and welfare of the people of the country as well as Muslim Ummah.Against the backdrop of the last year’s militant attack on the Eid gathering in Sholakia, the government has taken unprecedented security measures for the country’s largest Eid congregation. The devotees were searched before they entered the ground in four phases, to avoid any untoward situation. They were allowed only to carry their prayer mats. The police, RAB, BGB and other secuirty forces were vigilant on the occasion.Read more:Sholakia Eidgah under tight securitylast_img read more

North Korea goes back to the future by 30 minutes

first_imgNorth Korea`s leader Kim Jong Un (L) and South Korea`s president Moon Jae-in (R) breaking open a cake to symbolize the start of reconciliation during the official dinner of the inter-Korean summit in the truce village of Panmunjom Photo : AFPNorth Korea went forward in time by 30 minutes on Saturday, state media said, to match its clocks with those of the South following last week’s inter-Korean summit.Leader Kim Jong Un promised the move during the meeting at Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone that divides the peninsula, when he and the South’s president Moon Jae-in pledged to pursue denuclearisation and a peace treaty.”The time-resetting is the first practical step taken after the historic third north-south summit meeting to speed up the process for the North and the South to become one,” said the official KCNA news agency.In Panmunjom, Kim had said he found it a “painful wrench” to see clocks at the summit venue showing different times for the two neighbours, KCNA reported earlier.Kim expressed “his resolution to unify the two times… as the first practical step for national reconciliation and unity”, it said, and the North’s parliament on Monday adopted a decree to put the move into effect from Saturday.Seoul welcomed the decision as a “symbolic move” towards better inter-Korean ties.North and South are now vastly different societies, one a democratic member of the OECD club of developed countries, and the other an impoverished, hereditary one-party state left isolated by its pursuit of nuclear weapons.But it was only in 2015 that the Koreas’ clocks diverged, when Pyongyang put itself back 30 minutes to return to the time zone used in the peninsula before Japan colonised it in 1910.As of Saturday, Seoul, Pyongyang and Tokyo are all in the same time zone.North Korea is not the only country to have used time to assert its national identity.China and India have both imposed single time zones to promote unity across their vast territories, with people in China’s westernmost provinces officially keeping to Beijing time despite the sun rising and setting two hours later than in the capital.Most time zones around the world are an hour apart, but some have smaller differences – Myanmar is half an hour behind next-door Thailand, while Nepal sets itself 15 minutes ahead of India to assert a difference from its giant neighbour.And despite lying on Europe’s western edge, mainland Spain has been in the same time zone as central Europe since 1942, when Francisco Franco’s fascist government adopted it to line itself up with Nazi Germany.last_img

Researchers find a way to identify key nodes in illegal wildlife trade

first_img Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences More information: Quantitative methods of identifying the key nodes in the illegal wildlife trade network, Nikkita Gunvant Patel, PNAS, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1500862112AbstractInnovative approaches are needed to combat the illegal trade in wildlife. Here, we used network analysis and a new database, HealthMap Wildlife Trade, to identify the key nodes (countries) that support the illegal wildlife trade. We identified key exporters and importers from the number of shipments a country sent and received and from the number of connections a country had to other countries over a given time period. We used flow betweenness centrality measurements to identify key intermediary countries. We found the set of nodes whose removal from the network would cause the maximum disruption to the network. Selecting six nodes would fragment 89.5% of the network for elephants, 92.3% for rhinoceros, and 98.1% for tigers. We then found sets of nodes that would best disseminate an educational message via direct connections through the network. We would need to select 18 nodes to reach 100% of the elephant trade network, 16 nodes for rhinoceros, and 10 for tigers. Although the choice of locations for interventions should be customized for the animal and the goal of the intervention, China was the most frequently selected country for network fragmentation and information dissemination. Identification of key countries will help strategize illegal wildlife trade interventions. This document is subject to copyright.

Citation: Researchers find a way to identify key nodes in illegal wildlife trade network (2015, June 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from © 2015 South Africa weighs legal rhino horn tradecenter_img Most people are aware of the underground wildlife trade network, animals around the world are caught or killed and are sent whole or in parts to other places where they are highly valued. Such trafficking has resulted in reducing the numbers of many species, many to the point of extinction. Unfortunately, efforts by many people and organizations to stop the illegal trade have not been very successful. In this new effort, the researchers describe a new tool to help win the war.To gain a better perspective on the geographic location of all the players involved, the researchers used the HealthMap Wildlife Trade database to gather data about illegal trade location details. The database was originally built to help track diseases spread by animals, but offered data on details such as animals found dead due to poaching or resale market raids by police. The team used the data to create a network that revealed the country locals of various players involved in the illegal trade. And that allowed them to identify those countries that play a crucial role in maintaining the network—the thinking is, if the activities in just those countries could be curtailed, the network might fall apart.The team divided activities into two main sections—six countries that had the most illegal activity going on for three main animals—tigers, rhinos and elephants, and six countries that had the most connections. As an example, they found that disrupting such activity in the United Kingdom, Mozambique, China, Vietnam, South Africa and Thailand would cause a significant disruption of trade in rhino horns.The team notes that adding data to the networks as it becomes available should make the reports more accurate and thus more useful, both as a tool in slowing illegal wildlife trading and for studying the spread of diseases, particularly, those that jump to humans from animals. Satellite imagery of Africa. Credit: Public Domain (—A team of researchers with affiliations to several institutions in the U.S. has found a new way to track import, export and connecting countries in the illegal wildlife trade network. As they describe in their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, their work may help identify ways to reduce such trade in order to help protect the animals involved.

5 Fundamentals for Protecting Your Identity and Your Privacy

first_img Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 6 min read If you’re like me, you’re an entrepreneur. We are so busy growing our businesses that we may not think about the risk of identity theft. After all, hackers go after big corporations. Right? Wrong! We are at greater risk of identity theft than large corporations. Yet, we have all seen company after company hacked putting Americans’ private information at risk.Identity theft is the number one complaint received by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with 15 million victims each year at a cost of $50 billion annually. Identity theft is growing at such a rate, that many people believe there is nothing they can do. Not true. The following personal stories and tips should help you protect your business and yourself.Related: Don’t Despair, ID Theft Is Not Inevitable1. Beware public Wi-Fi spoofs.“Can you help me? My identity has been stolen.” That was an email I received from a TV show producer. He had been hacked. I told this victim how I believed his identity was stolen. He had been surfing the Internet using public Wi-Fi. This is very risky.Public Wi-Fi spots found on airplanes, airports, cafes, or malls are completely insecure, and anyone using them should think of everything they type as being broadcast to a billboard in Times Square. Wi-Fi is dangerous because anyone can “spoof ” a Wi-Fi spot and then access your data.When my wife and I moved to Utah, we lived in a townhouse community. When I first logged onto the Internet there were almost a dozen different Wi-Fi spots that popped up. Well, a criminal will do the same and create a Wi-Fi spot and name it. People nearby have no idea that they’re not real as these names could be Starbucks or a person’s name. As they login and use their passcodes, the criminal downloads all of their information.One reporter from USA Today had his identity hacked and authorities traced it back to the GoGo Inflight Internet he used. Someone had spoofed the GoGo Wi-Fi and the reporter used the fake spot instead of the real one.Related: Make Your Businesses Invulnerable to Corporate Identity Theft2. Virtual private networks.Protect yourself with a Virtual Private Network (VPN), which extends a private network across a public network, such as the Internet.VPN enables users to send/receive data across share/public networks as if their devices were directly connected to the private network.There are many VPNs which easy to obtain and use,  including TunnelBear which costs about $50 a year. Do your research and find the one you like best. Download it onto your computer and smart phone.3. Credit freeze.Next, put a freeze on your credit, I’ve had mine for about 15 years. This is something I highly recommend and it’s one of the smartest moves you can make to protect your identity and privacy. A credit freeze blocks companies from running your credit without your permission. No one will be able to buy a car or take out a mortgage with your credit.Here’s how to put a freeze on your credit report: Contact all three credit-reporting agencies separately. Send a letter by certified mail requesting a freeze be placed on your credit.Here are the links to each credit agency:Transunion — PH: 888-909-8872 — PH: 888-397-3742 freezeEquifax  — PH:800-685-1111 you request a freeze, the credit agencies provide you with a (PIN) to use when providing access to your credit. Every state charges different fees for placing a credit freeze. This may sound like a lot of work,  but just imagine how many hours you would spend on the phone undoing the damage of being hacked. Also carry an Identity Protection card in your wallet. This protects people from hacking your credit cards. For full details on why these cards are so important and to get one for free, click here.4. Cross shred documents.Shred everything and only use a crosscut shredder. Don’t use a shredder that cuts the paper into strips as these can be put back together.Related: Your Data Breach Doesn’t Have to Produce Identity Theft5. Bank statement monitoring.Spend 10 minutes each month reviewing your bank/credit card statements to ensure nothing fraudulent has taken place. If you’re still not convinced about the importance of protecting your identity and privacy, here’s a horror story about a former Miss Teen USA.Cassidy Wolf was on her computer when she received an anonymous and threatening email stating that the sender had thousands of pictures of her, including many of her nude, and that he’d been watching her for over a year. The sender was planning to put the pictures all over social media unless she got on Skype with him and agreed to do a series of inappropriate things. It turns out that the sender had hacked her webcam as well as many as 40 other women, some of whom actually gave in to his blackmail demands.In an interview with Business Insider, Cassidy said, “Your bedroom is your most private and intimate space. To think that someone was watching me for a year, had seen my most intimate moments, heard conversations I had with my mom and my brother, and knew everything about my life — someone can have access to all of that by your computer.” Unfortunately, in the future, there will be even more programs and ways for criminals to hack people’s webcams and other computer devices.I recommend taping a piece of paper over the camera. This is such a simple thing to do and it ensures that nobody can watch you. Also, don’t bring your computer into the bedroom. Store your computer in another room or in a laptop bag. And, don’t forget about all those other devices that have cameras too, such as your phone and iPad.In this special report I’ve given you several ways to better protect yourself. Please start implementing them today so you don’t become one of the millions of victims of identity theft this year. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

first_img Comments   Share   As a rookie two years ago, Humphries was given the nickname “Knee Deep” by then-head coach Bruce Arians as the coach tried to keep his young lineman motivated after Humphries hyperextended his knee during a preseason practice.“A knee in his (expletive) every day,” Arians said at the time. “A foot wasn’t going to do it, so I nicknamed him ‘Knee Deep.’”Humphries worked his way to the starting line.But in 2017, the knee injury forced Humphries to get his first-ever surgery — one that left a 16-inch scar.Now, Humphries is looking toward his comeback.He said he’s been taking limited reps at practice over the last month.“It’s coming along good,” he said. “There’s highs and lows but for the most part, we’ve been having highs and I’m really excited about that.”Humphries said his dad has given him advice throughout the years, and one piece stuck out for him.Related LinksCardinals’ Deone Bucannon embracing leadership role under WilksCardinals RB D.J.

Around the field, Humphries sees positives.The stars and the high-paid players aren’t acting like divas. The bench units are playing well. Everybody has been working hard in practice. Cornerback Patrick Peterson blocked a kick Monday, Humphries said.“No one’s going through the motions,” he said.It’s one thing to call out preseason forecasts that predict a losing season.Humphries sincerely sounds like he thinks this year will be better than last. He took a breath and lowered his voice a little before sharing his expectation:“I think we’re going to have something special going on around here.” Seven plays.Cardinals offensive lineman D.J. Humphries recalled that number four times during his appearance on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Bickley & Marotta on Monday.On the seventh play of the 2017 NFL season, Humphries sprained his MCL.He would return to play four more games before another MCL injury, plus a dislocated kneecap, ended his season.“The most frustrating part about it was I knew how much progress I made two years ago and I knew how much progress I made between the season before that just passed, going into that one, and I had a great feeling about what was going to happen,” Humphries said. “And then to go down, the seventh play of the season, it was super frustrating.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “That’s the motto that I’ve been trying to stick to is just try to maximize what i can get out of the day, and get to the next one and do the same thing.”It’s hard for him not to look forward to the near future, though.First off, he has been impressed by offensive line coach Ray Brown, who had a 19-year career in the NFL spanning from 1986-2005. He was an assistant offensive line coach for eight years.

Loizidou property return always the goal Skourides hit with delays

first_imgBy Peter MichealTitina Loizidou, a Kyrenian refugee, said that the return of her property has always been the goal, in a comment made Saturday on the latest developments at the Council of Europe’s Ministerial Committee, while another refugee, Nicolas Skourides, has been met with delays to construction of his home in his restored property in the north.Regarding Ankara’s compliance with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ruling on compensation but it was not returned to her as per the ruling, Loizidou told CNA: “Turkey has still not complied to ECHR’s 1996 decision for the restoration and peaceful enjoyment of my property in occupied Kyrenia, and that is why I was in Strasbourg last week to meet with a large number of representatives.”Loizidou also sent a letter to the representatives on the Ministerial Council, requesting they keep her property case open.   On Thursday, the Turkish delegation walked out of the meeting towards the end of a three-day session of the Committee of Ministers, which is charged with supervising the execution of ECHR judgments.The protest was related to the discussion concerning Greek Cypriot properties in the north and Ankara had attempted to end the supervision in some of the cases but had failed to persuade other delegations to pass a relevant decision.Regarding property restitution, Ankara has suggested that the ‘immovable property commission’ (IPC) in the north be the remedy of Greek Cypriots, who filed cases with the ECHR.Another Greek Cypriot refugee, who gained access to his land in Lapithou, has encountered delays in the construction of his home.Nicolas Skourides, 78, who had been given his property after applying to the ‘immovable property committee’, is forging ahead with construction but is being delayed due to the lack of proper-licensing from ‘authorities’ in the north.The ‘mayor’ of the village, Fuat Namsoy said the construction could continue, when all the proper licences were issued.   He added that he was not aware how long it would take for Skourides to receive the licences as they had to be approved by the ‘regional head’.Namsoy added that the delay in construction had nothing do with the outrage of Skourides’ would-be neighbours.  Last week, residents of the village reportedly started collecting signatures to overturn the decision of the IPC.Police had to go to the area due to the tension, Turkish Cypriot newspaper Yeni Duzen reported, adding that poles marking Skourides’ land had been removed following complaints that they were blocking theSkourides insists he is determined to build his home in the village, despite the reactions.  “I want to die, where I was born,” he said.He added that he had paid a deposit to a Turkish Cypriot contractor, who had filed all the necessary applications, and told him they could start construction without all the licences.Construction, Skourides said, started 15 days ago.  He added that at first the Turkish Cypriot residents of the village encouraged him to proceed. However, when construction began, he noted, a number of residents filed complaints with the Turkish Cypriot authorities saying Skourides’ home would ruin the view.Skourides said he had gone to the village on Monday and attempted to talk with one of the individuals that filed the complaint, but was unable to.  The work though will continue as soon as the appropriate licenses are received Skourides said.You May LikeTrendFeedy14 Hairstyles To Make You 20 Years Younger This Summer !TrendFeedyUndoFood PreventRaisin Water for a Liver CleanseFood PreventUndoBored ArticlesThe 8 Best Countries To Move To For RetirementBored ArticlesUndo The Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoMayors lobbying president to prevent local govt mergersUndoHeroes’ welcome for Israeli teens after woman detained for false rape claim (Update 2)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
