The general secretaries of Britain’s unions will attend a Trade Union Congress (TUC) meeting on 28 January to discuss the possibility and mechanics of bringing Britain to a halt through coordinated industrial action.The unions hope to bring unrest to the country in a protest over a two-year public sector pay freeze, job losses and announcements from the government on pensions reform.The strikes are planned to take place around the time of chancellor George Osborne’s 23 March budget, with plans for a protest march through London on 26 March. The final findings of a report into pensions reform by ex-Labour cabinet minister John Hutton, also due in March, could inflame tensions between the government and the unions. The former work and pensions secretary recommended a 3 per cent increase on workers’ pension contributions in an October interim report, in a move that angered union leaders. Yet the threat of action has incensed the City, with business groups saying it could damage the fragile economic recovery.A spokesperson for the CBI said yesterday: “Strikes prevent ordinary people going about their daily lives, whether they are getting to work or getting the kids to school. This type of action could also harm the economic recovery at what is a very critical time.”Sir Martin Sorrell, the chief executive of marketing agency WPP Group yesterday warned of a “bumpy period” for businesses around springtime. He was speaking on Sky News.Labour leader Ed Miliband joined growing opposition to union-led industrial action yesterday.Speaking on the Andrew Marr show, he said: “What we are not going to do under my leadership is go back to the heroic failures of the 1980s.“Strikes are a last resort and a sign of failure on both sides… they are not the way you change a government, the way you change a government is through the ballot box.” last_img read more

first_imgThursday 24 March 2011 8:53 pm KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Share BHP Billiton yesterday revealed details of its $9.5bn (£5.89bn) investment plans for its iron ore and coal operations. The FTSE 100 miner announced a bigger-than-expected $80bn capital expenditure plan last month, which the firm said would pay for organic growth over the next five years rather than blockbuster acquisitions.BHP said yesterday its Western Australia iron ore project will be boosted to 220m tonnes per annum by new equipment, a rail link and port facilities costing a total of $7.4bn, of which BHP will shell out $6.6bn. The firm has also given the green light to three coal projects in Queensland, Australia, at a total cost of $5bn. BHP will pay half of this sum, with its partner Mitsubishi paying the rest.

Quade Cooper suspended for one week for dangerous hit on Berrick Barnes

Monday Jul 16, 2012 Quade Cooper suspended for one week for dangerous hit on Berrick Barnes Quade Cooper will miss the Reds’ playoff match against the Sharks next weekend following a dangerous tackle he made on Waratahs back Berrick Barnes. He received a yellow card at the time, and has since been suspended for one week. A lengthy SANZAR judicial hearing took place earlier today, ruling the Wallaby flyhalf out of next week’s clash against the Sharks, which will determine who progresses to the semi final stage.Cooper pleaded not guilty to the charge of a dangerous tackle on Barnes, who is well known to have suffered from head issues in the past, to the point of retiring from the game temporarily.“It was something I certainly didn’t want to hear (the suspension). I was looking forward to playing this weekend. I’m pretty disappointed but I have total faith in my teammates and our game plan and believe they’ll get the job done,” said Cooper.SANZAR judicial officer Paul Tully said that Cooper had made principle contact with the chest of Barnes, but that he also made contact with the neck, which made it a dangerous tackle, in contravention of Law 10.4 (e). “There is no doubt Quade makes a difference for us,” said Reds coach Ewen Mckenzie, who insisted that despite the loss of the influential Wallaby, the team will do okay without him. “But Quade has played in three games and we’ve won 11 and we’re in the finals. We’ve had to do a lot of it without Quade, anyway, and we’re still there.”The Reds will need to slot either Mike Harris or Ben Lucas into the number ten role, a position they have both occupied earlier in the season when Cooper was injured. The Sharks aren’t without disappointment themselves, as fullback Pat Lambie will miss the game with an ankle injury, and Springbok center Francois Steyn is ineligible due to being a late in the season recruit, signed by the Sharks after the April 1 transfer deadline. View quick highlights of the Reds vs Waratahs match hereDo you think a one week suspension is fair, or was a yellow card sufficient?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The apex court did not express anything on the merits of the matter, and said that it was appropriate that the High Court dealt with the issue first, taking note of his apology.Oza, as the GHCAA President, had earlier voiced strong protest against the transfer of Justice Akil Kureshi from Gujarat HC to Bombay HC by terming it “unwarranted, uncalled for and unjust” The Association under his leadership had also approached the Supreme Court against the Centre’s delay to act on the SC Collegium’s recommendation to elevate Justice Kureshi as the Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court.In June, he had tendered his resignation as the GHCAA President following differences among the Office bearers of the Association regarding re-opening of the courts for physical hearing. Oza had addressed a letter to Chief Justice Vikram Nath, urging him to let the High Court function “full fledgedly” via video conferencing and allow all matters to be heard.Later, he withdrew his resignation, following request by several members.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

‘One of the largest cases of its kind’: Feds indict 80 people in $6 million fraud, money laundering scheme

first_imgRawf8/iStock(LOS ANGELES) — U.S. federal prosecutors have announced a 252-count indictment charging 80 people, mostly Nigerian nationals, with being part of a widespread conspiracy to steal millions of dollars through a variety of scams and then launder the money.The federal grand jury indictment was unsealed Thursday after authorities arrested 14 defendants across the United States, including 11 in the Los Angeles area, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California. Three other defendants were already in federal custody. Six defendants believed to be in the country are fugitives, while the dozens of remaining defendants live in other nations, mainly Nigeria.U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said the defendants allegedly used various “sophisticated” online fraud schemes to prey upon businesses, elderly individuals and people who may have been susceptible to a romance-related scam.“We believe this is one of the largest cases of its kind in U.S. history,” Hanna told reporters at a press conference Thursday. “We are taking a major step to disrupt these criminal networks.”Paul Delacourt, assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office, said the defendants defrauded victims out of around $10 million and attempted to steal at least another $40 million.Billions of dollars are lost each year through these types of frauds, according to Delacourt. In the first seven months of 2019, more than 14,000 people filed complaints with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center alleging they were victims of business email compromise, or BEC, scams, reporting total losses of almost $1.1 billion“This crime is growing exponentially in terms of losses and victims,” Delacourt told reporters at Thursday’s press conference. “While we are happy to announce these charges today, we are not going to arrest our way out of this problem, and so we continue to educate potential victims.”The lead defendants named in the 145-page indictment are Valentine Iro, 31, and Chukwudi Christogunus Igbokwe, 38, both Nigerian citizens who live in California and were among those arrested Thursday morning. Prosecutors allege that the pair essentially operated as “brokers of fraudulent bank accounts.”Co-conspirators based in Nigeria, the United States and other nations contacted Iro and Igbokwe for bank and money-service accounts that could receive funds fraudulently obtained from victims. Once co-conspirators convinced victims to send money under false pretenses, Iro and Igbokwe allegedly coordinated the receipt of funds and oversaw an extensive money-laundering network based out of Los Angeles, according to the indictment.Prosecutors allege Iro and Igbokwe did all this in exchange for a cut of the stolen money.The indictment stems from a yearslong investigation led by the FBI. Iro, Igbokwe and another Nigerian defendant named in the indictment, 39-year-old Chuks Eroha, face additional charges for attempting to destroy their cellphones when the FBI executed a search warrant in 2017 at Iro’s apartment in Carson, California. Iro allegedly broke his phone in half while Igbokwe and Eroha allegedly threw their phones out a window seconds after FBI agents knocked on the apartment door. Eroha is believed to have fled to Nigeria shortly after the search.“In the days ahead,” Delacourt said, “we will be working with our foreign counterparts in nine countries to apprehend 57 additional defendants.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
