AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter GREF names Alderney’s Starck as new chairman European regulatory authority Gaming Regulators European Forum (GREF) has appointed Jorn Starck, the executive director of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, as its new chairman.Starck had been serving as vice-chair of the organisation and now replaces Claire Pinson, head of European and international affairs at French regulator ARJEL, in the role.Pinson took up the position of chair in July of last year after Marja Appelman, the then-CEO of Dutch regulator Kansspelautoriteit, opted to step down.Starck has been replaced in his vice-chair role by current Kansspelautoriteit chair, René Jansen.Speaking about his new position with GREF, Jansen said that his appointment comes at a critical time for the Dutch market. In February, the country’s Senate passed the Remote Gaming Act, paving the way for the roll-out of igaming regulation in the country.“The laws and regulations concerning gambling are not the same in any country, yet there are many common ground in our work,” Jansen said. “The protection of consumers, the prevention of gambling addiction and the fight against illegality and crime are of paramount importance to all regulators.“By sharing experiences, we learn from each other. We are also confronted with the same issues. For example, a current topic is the appearance of gambling elements in games.“All supervisors are looking at how to deal with this. Then it makes sense to work together, partly because there is a strong international character on both the gaming and the gambling market.” Regions: Europe Tags: Card Rooms and Poker Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance People Sports betting Strategy Bingo Poker Email Address

Se dice que la razón es que teme ser objeto de chiflidos y burlas. La popularidad de la mandataria ha disminuido verticalmente en las últimas semanas. Los moradores de las favelas y otros sectores pobres de la sociedad le critican que se use tanto dinero en los juegos cuando el país sufre serios problemas sociales.

Angelou fue alabada por haber llegado a la cima procedente de una vida de pobreza y sufrimientos.

Los obispos afirman que esto es un “reto humanitario” para niños indefensos y vulnerables. El Wall Street Journal añadió que esto es también un reto fiscal para la nación en momentos que el congreso considera el futuro de 11 millones de indocumentados que ya viven en el país. Activistas de derechos humanos dicen que el número de niños se debe en su mayoría a la situación de violencia y pobreza que se vive en México. Según la Patrulla Fronteriza la mayoría de los niños procede de Honduras, Guatemala y El Salvador, países con altos niveles de violencia. Los obispos urgen una reforma integral al problema migratorio.Una reciente reunión de los Guías Espirituales del Exilio, grupo ecuménico formado por clérigos de distintas iglesias, parece que está tomando nueva vida después de un año de reposo.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has set it the following schedule for the payment of salaries: ‘so far as payment of outstanding salary for the month of March, 2020 is concerned, the same shall be given to the Junior Residents, Senior Residents and PG doctors in their bank accounts by 5 p.m. on 19th June, 2020. So far as the outstanding payment for the month of April, 2020 is concerned, the payment shall be made to all the resident doctors on or before 5 p.m. on 24th June, 2020.’ The order has come after the court took suo moto cognizance of multiple media reports that talked about the non payment of salary to the Resident Doctors of Kasturba Hospital and Hindu Rao Hospital situated at Delhi. Due to non-payment of salary for at last three months, the resident doctors intend to either resign en masse or go on strike. Mr Akhil Mittal, who appeared for North DMC, informed the court that that salaries have not been paid to the resident doctors i.e. Junior Residents, Senior Residents and PG Doctors since March, 2020 due to financial constraints. On the other hand, ASG Sanjay Jain submitted that the Delhi Government has already disbursed the legally payable amount to North Delhi Municipal Corporation in the month of May, 2020. Nonetheless, they are ready to disburse an additional amount for payment of salary to the resident doctors of all aforesaid six hospitals by 18th June, 2020. After taking these submissions into consideration, the court observed that the outstanding amount paid by the Delhi Government to the North DMC shall be utilised for the payment of outstanding remuneration for the month of April, 2020 to the abovementioned categories of doctors. The amount shall not be retained by the North DMC unnecessarily. The court further directed that: ‘The amount to be released by the government which is approximately ₹8.00 crores, will be adjusted/set off towards the payments required to be made by the government in future to the North DMC. The adjustment of the accounts can always be done at later stage but the salary is required to be paid on priority to the resident doctors.’Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story read more

The Bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Ohri was hearing an appeal filed on behalf of the appellant-accused against the judgment whereby the appellant was convicted for the offence punishable under Section 6 of the POCSO Act and was sentenced to undergo RI for a period of 10 years. The matter before the Court The FIR was registered on the statement of the mother of the child victim. The child victim, in her statement recorded under Section 164 Cr.P.C., stated that on the day of the incident, the appellant pulled her and sexually assaulted her and she cried and her mother came. The appellant was convicted for the offence punishable under Section 6 of the POCSO Act by the Special Judge: POCSO Act, Rohini Courts, Delhi and was sentenced to undergo RI for a period of 10 years along with payment of a fine of Rs.10,000/-, in default whereof to further undergo SI for 30 days. Assailing the impugned judgment on the ground that the trial court failed to appreciate that the testimony of the child victim and her mother were not creditworthy as there were material improvements not only in the statements of the child victim but also, her mother. It was also contended that the testimony of the child victim was also not creditworthy and admissible as the child victim was tutored. Analysis done by the Court The Court noted that a perusal of the statement of the child victim under Section 164 Cr.P.C. and her in-court examination would show that the child victim has slightly improved her version. The Court referred to another aspect of the cross-examination of the child victim, wherein she had admitted that before coming to the Court, her mother told her as to what is to be stated in the Court. The Court observed that while answering the Court questions, the child victim also stated that before being taken to the hospital, her mother had told her as to what is to be stated to the doctor. To this, the Court said, “The creditworthiness and the admissibility of the statement of child victim and her mother is under challenge not only on the aspect of improvements but also on the aspect of tutoring. It is no longer res integra that the sole testimony of a child victim, before being accepted should be evaluated very carefully. It should be devoid of any embellishment, improvement or tutoring.” Further, the Delhi High Court cited the Apex Court’s ruling in the case of Mangoo v. State of M.P. AIR 1995 SC 959, M.P. v. Ramesh & Anr. (2011) 4 SCC 786, State of Madhya Pradesh v. Rajaram Alias Raja (2019) 13 SCC 516 wherein it was stated by the SC, time and again, that while dealing with the evidence of a child witness, the Court must determine as to whether the child has been tutored or not. To this, the Court remarked, “In the present case, not only there are material improvements in the statements of the child victim and her mother but there are also material contradictions as already observed. Furthermore, the child victim categorically stated that she was told by her mother about what to say in the Court.” In light of the above discussion, the Court opined that the creditworthiness of the testimony of the child victim was in doubt. “It cannot be said with certainty that her testimony does not suffer from the vice of tutoring. The testimony of the mother of the child victim is full of material improvements”, said the Court. Also, the Court said, there was no corroboration in the form of MLC or the FSL. In these circumstances, the Court noted that the appellant’s false implication couldn’t be ruled out. Court’s order Resultantly, the appellant-accused was granted the benefit of doubt and his appeal was allowed. The impugned judgment and order on sentence was set aside. The appellant was directed to be immediately set free if not required in any other case. The appeal was disposed of in the above terms. Case title – Altaf Ahmed @ Rahul v.

ADNOC aims to increase its conventional drilling activity by 40% by 2025 (Credit: Abu Dhabi National Oil Company) Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) subsidiary ADNOC Drilling and its partners have completed the first offshore integrated drilling services (IDS) well at the Umm Lulu offshore oil field located in the Arabian Gulf 30km north-west of Abu Dhabi, UAE.ADNOC said that the well, which was delivered to ADNOC Drilling’s client Adnoc Offshore ahead of schedule, has achieved best-in-class performance in terms of drilling efficiency. The move follows the completion of 14 onshore IDS wells in 2019.ADNOC Upstream executive director Abdulmunim Saif Al Kindy said: “Our first offshore IDS well and the 14 onshore IDS wells drilled over the course of this year have shown an increase in our drilling performance by about 25 percent, resulting in considerable cost savings and increased well profitability. The successful offshore well completion was delivered in record-breaking time, as were the previous onshore IDS wells.“This milestone firmly positions ADNOC Drilling as a leading provider of comprehensive drilling and well construction services.“It also positions ADNOC Drilling as the first national integrated drilling company in the region at an important time, when we are substantially expanding our oil production capacity, unlocking Abu Dhabi’s vast conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon resources, and driving efficiencies across all of our operations to deliver more value to the UAE and our partners.”ADNOC aims to increase conventional drilling activity by 40% by 2025ADNOC said it aims to increase its conventional drilling activity by 40% by 2025 and substantially grow the number of its unconventional wells.The move aligns with the firm’s ambition to boost oil production capacity to four million barrels per day by the end of 2020 and five million by 2030.ADNOC Drilling CEO Abdalla Saeed Al Suwaidi said: “Extending our comprehensive oilfield service offering to offshore wells less than a year after commencement of our transformation to an IDS company is an important milestone for ADNOC.”The Umm Lulu field is expected to produce up to 105,000 barrels of crude oil a day when fully developed.Earlier this year, Abu Dhabi National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) announced the completion of the Umm Lulu Gas Treatment Platform (ULGTP) for ADNOC.The work is a part of a contract awarded earlier to NPCC, in consortium with TechnipFMC, for a large offshore super complex at the major Umm Lulu field. The well was delivered to ADNOC Drilling’s client Adnoc Offshore ahead of schedule and under budget read more
