Nearly 300 people responded to a question asking them for their thoughts on what the Jamestown Police Department’s role is. Their thoughts varied from protecting the community to not having a definitive answer.The respondents were asked to pick up to ten services listed that they believe are most beneficial. Investigating crimes again and performing narcotics investigations were the top two picked, according to the data.The survey also asked people for their thoughts on how Jamestown Police can best improve policing and build better relationships. Those who took the survey were allowed to pick up to three options. Performing community outreach and establish and build relationships with schools and youth were the top two options selected. Members of the Jamestown City Council Public Safety Committee are expected to review the data, according to the agenda for the Committee’s Thursday meeting. In addition, the agenda says that the committee will create stakeholder groups and discuss the next steps that the legislative body will take.The meeting will not be open to the public, but the stream can be found on the City’s official website.The full survey can be found here:Failed to fetch Error: URL to the PDF file must be on exactly the same domain as the current web page.

OJK shuts down Jouska, two other investment firms

first_img“We’ve asked PT Jouska to settle the disputes with its clients transparently and invite the customers to settle the issues,” the task force said in a press statement. “We ask Jouska to process its licenses in line with its business activity as soon as possible.”The task force revealed that Jouska received a license as an education-services company through the Online Single Submission (OSS). It further said in the statement that Aakar had accepted the decisions.The case was uncovered when several clients and former clients of Jouska, which claims to be an independent financial advisory company and which gained its popularity among young investors via social media, took to Twitter, saying Jouska’s decision to invest their funds in low quality stocks had resulted in a slump in their portfolio values by more than 70 percent.A former client also uploaded an offering letter and a contract he received from the company when using its services in 2018 and 2019. The Financial Services Authority (OJK) has instructed financial advisory company PT Jouska Financial Indonesia to cease operations over allegations of illegal stock brokerage and investment mismanagement.The OJK’s Investment Alert Task Force also shut down PT Mahesa Strategis Indonesia and PT Amarta Investa Indonesia, which are alleged to have provided investment management services and financial advice without proper licenses. It has also blocked all three companies’ websites, applications and social media accounts through the Communications and Information Ministry.The decision was made after the task force summoned and questioned Jouska CEO and founder Aakar Abyasa Fidzuno following complaints on social media from its clients. The offering letter stated that aside from educating the client and helping them to pick the right investment instrument based on their profile, Jouska would have the right to manage the client’s funds, as well as to buy and sell stocks in their portfolio. The client then entered into a fund-management contract with Amarta Investa while others said they signed a contract with Mahesa Strategis.The Jakarta Post has learned that Jouska, Amarta Investa and Mahesa Strategis are not registered as investment-management companies or securities companies at the OJK.“Independent financial planners are not allowed to sell a financial product or investment management service to their clients,” financial planner Safir Senduk told the Post over the phone on Wednesday.The International Association of Registered Financial Consultants (IARFC) Indonesia has stressed that a financial advisor is prohibited from managing clients’ funds and trading stocks in their portfolios even with full discretion and consent from the clients.“We have to be proactive so we are now establishing a task force to list those who are claiming to be a financial planner but are actually in violation of the code of ethics,” said IARFC Indonesia chairman and president Aidil Akbar Madjid said on Thursday.“We hope the people who want to use financial planners’ services will be aware of which ones are licensed and which are not,” he said, adding that the profession was still self-regulated and yet to be regulated by the OJK.The Jouska case shared a similarity with the investment mismanagement that led to a corruption case involving ailing state-owned insurer PT Asuransi Jiwasraya, as both had used other parties’ funds to invest in questionable stocks, said University of Indonesia (UI) capital markets expert Budi Frensidy on Thursday.“[Jouska] case’s impact may be small on our stock market, but it can discourage new and potential equity investors from trying to invest,” he said.He suggested investors choose reputable and licensed asset-management firms to help them manage their investments if they do not feel confident enough to manage their own funds.Jouska’s clients shared on social media their portfolio details revealing that the company invested the majority of their funds in newly listed computer hardware-trading company, PT Sentral Mitra Informatika, trading on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) under the code LUCK. Advisors at Jouska are also reported to have prevented clients from selling the shares when the prices had dropped more than 80 percent, an allegation that has neither been denied nor confirmed by the company.Sentral Mitra, which was listed on the bourse on Nov. 29, 2018, saw its share price increase exponentially from Rp 285 (2 United States cents) to its highest level of Rp 2,020 apiece just around eight months after its IPO. Sentral Mitra’s share price has since dropped to near its IPO price, trading at Rp 322 on Friday.Jouska previously claimed in a written statement that it always informed clients of all economic, industry and corporate analyses, including the risks in every financial decision. It also denied the claims that Jouska had full access to its clients’ securities accounts and had managed their funds.“We are now building a credible and trusted capital market. [On that basis,] we call on people who want to invest in the capital market to always check out whether or not an advisor, investment manager or broker has a license,” the task force chairman, Tongam L. Tobing, said on Friday. (prm)Topics :last_img read more

Martinez backs Marriner over error

first_img “Errors are part of the game and there will be errors, misjudgments and mistakes but that is part of football and you need to accept it because that is what makes football what it is. “It should be part of the game. It is not a black and white decision at times, it is a little bit more of interpretation. “I think we need to rely on the referees and I think the referees in this country are as good as they get.” In Saturday’s incident Oxlade-Chamberlain tried to tell Marriner he was the guilty party but the referee stuck to his original decision to send off Gibbs. Martinez said that was a good rather than bad example of the relationship between players and referees. “I think there is a really good relationship and referees are the ones to praise in that respect,” he added. “I’ve seen a lot of leagues around the world and referees don’t want to be seen to be talking to the players because they think it means they lose power. “I think the relationship in the British game is as good as it gets in world football maybe because the referee can trust the players a bit more. “Abroad the players are there to get decisions from the referee, they are there to try to con the referee so that is not a perfect way to start a relationship.” Former referee Dermot Gallagher believes Marriner should not be stood down this weekend and should be lined up to officiate another game. “If you are in a position where you’re going to stand a referee down for whatever period, whenever he goes back, the focus will be on him,” he told Radio 5 Live’s Sportsweek programme on Sunday. “He’s made a genuine mistake and that’s all it was.” Everton manager Roberto Martinez has leapt to the defence of under-fire referee Andre Marriner and believes it is not in the interests of football to challenge every error made by match officials. Marriner wrongly sent off Kieran Gibbs for deliberate handball instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Arsenal’s defeat at Chelsea on Saturday. The referee, who was in charge of last year’s FA Cup final, apologised to the Gunners after the game and will learn later whether he has been dropped for the coming weekend’s games as a result of the mistake when the Premier League announces its match officials list later on Monday. Arsenal are likely to appeal against the dismissal on the grounds of mistaken identity and although the one-match ban will be transferred to Oxlade-Chamberlain, there has been some suggestion the Gunners will then appeal the suspension as the shot appeared to be going wide, and that therefore a goalscoring opportunity was not denied. Martinez believes referees should be given some leeway in terms of the errors they make and does not believe new rules should be introduced to make greater user of technology. “I wouldn’t think you should put something in place if that happens again because it is so rare and I think at that moment the referee was completely sure,” said the Toffees boss. “I think we would be going a little bit too far. I think goalline technology was a really important breakthrough but from that point on I think we need to allow referees to do their job. “I am sure in that incident he would have listened to the players and listened to the fourth official to try to get some help, but you need to be strong. “Andre Marriner has incredible experience and it was one of those situations that happens in football. “We have an elite group (of referees) in our league and for me it is one of the best in world football. “We need to increase that group and help them have good training and development but we need to let them get on with their job.
