Despite a seven per cent fall in its share price following the events of the 11 March earthquake, Aeon forecast a 175bn yen (£1.28bn) operating profit for the year beginning in March with the aid of continuing demand for food and other essentials.

Illinois launches sports betting licensing process

first_img The Illinois Gaming Board has issued emergency rules to kick off the first phase of the state’s sports betting licensing process. The emergency rules issued by the Gaming Board make master sports wagering, management service provider, supplier, official league data supplier, management service provider and occupational licences available. They set out the eligibility criteria for each, and confirm the fee for master licences will be 5% of handle for the 2018 calendar year, at a minimum of $2.3m, and capped at $10m. Racetracks that apply for this licence will pay whichever is greater of $5m or 5% of 2018 handle, also capped at $10m. While an online betting licence is to be capped at $20m, this is not included in the emergency rules. They also set out the licensing process, and allow the regulator to issue temporary operating permits in “situations that do not compromise gaming integrity or public safety and that can be granted in an ethical and expeditious manner”.“Today’s release of applications and phase 1 rules is a significant step in the process the General Assembly and Governor Pritzker began earlier this year – the ethical and transparent implementation of sports wagering in Illinois,” Illinois Gaming Board administrator Marcus Fruchter said.Read the full story on iGB North America. 20th December 2019 | By contenteditor Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Regions: US Illinois Tags: Mobile Online Gambling OTB and Betting Shops Race Track and Racino Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Sports betting Horse racing The Illinois Gaming Board has issued emergency rules to kick off the first phase of the state’s sports betting licensing process.  Casino & games Illinois launches sports betting licensing process Email Addresslast_img read more

After 114 days as hostage, Alan Johnston says: “It is just the most fantastic thing to be free”

first_img News July 4, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 After 114 days as hostage, Alan Johnston says: “It is just the most fantastic thing to be free” Organisation Follow the news on Palestine PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders is relieved and overjoyed at the release of Alan Johnston, who spent 114 days as a hostage. “Fifteen journalists have been kidnapped in the Gaza Strip since 2005,” the press freedom organisation says. “Their abductors have never been arrested or punished although many of them are known to the security forces. This generalised impunity must end.” WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes Help by sharing this information News PalestineMiddle East – North Africa May 16, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts May 28, 2021 Find out more News News Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists to go further June 3, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is overjoyed at the news that British journalist Alan Johnston was released in the early hours of today in Gaza as a result of the intervention of senior Muslim clerics and negotiations between Hamas and his kidnappers. The BBC correspondent had been held hostage for 114 days.“Seeing Johnston free and in good health is an immense relief and a great joy,” the press freedom organisation said. “During the 16 weeks he was held, we became more and more concerned at the increasingly grave threats from his abductors and the apparent inability of the Palestinian authorities to find a solution. We hail the international campaign waged for his release, which did not flag during all that time, and our thoughts go out to Johnston’s parents and sister who showed great courage throughout this ordeal.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Johnston’s departure leaves the Gaza Strip with no foreign journalists based there. We hope the security situation will be stabilised sufficiently for foreign correspondents to return and for Palestinian journalists to be able to work without being obstructed or harassed. The Palestinian Authority must now take measures to ensure that this does not happen again. Fifteen journalists have been kidnapped in the Gaza Strip since 2005. Their abductors have never been arrested or punished although many of them are known to the security forces. This generalised impunity must end.”Hamas leader and former Prime Minister Ismael Haniyeh received Johnston at his home immediately after his release. There Johnston said: “It is just the most fantastic thing to be free. It was an appalling experience, as you can imagine, to be held for 16 weeks (…) I often dreamed I was free and woke up to find myself still in that room (…) I cannot get over being free (…) I am very grateful to everyone, an enormous number of people, who worked with the Palestinians, in the British government, the BBC, from the bottom to the top, and all the BBC’s listeners.”Johnston, who said he had not been tortured, was finally freed as a result of the intervention of the Popular Resistence Committees, one of the most senior group of Muslim clerics in the Gaza Strip, which issued a fatwa condemning his abduction.Since seizing control in the Gaza Strip on 15 June, Hamas had steadily stepped up its pressure on the group holding Johnston, the Army of Islam, and had surrounded its hideout in west Gaza. The intervention of the Popular Resistence Committees resulted in direct negotiations between Nizar Rayan, a senior Hamas leader, and Moumtaz Dogmush, the head of the kidnappers.Johnston’s release was part of prisoner exchange, in which Army of Islam leader Khattab Al-Maqdissi, who was arrested by Hamas’s Executive Force on 1 July, and five other Army of Islam members were freed in return for the release of some 10 Hamas members who were kidnapped a few days ago.(logo © AFP) RSF_en last_img read more

RFI correspondent still held on terrorism charges after ten months

He is charged with complicity in acts of terrorism and failure to report acts of terrorism to the authorities.Arrested during a routine police check in the northern city Maroua on 30 July, Abba spent 15 days in police custody in Maroua before being handed over to the national intelligence service in Yaoundé, the capital, where he was held incommunicado for three months.He was denied access to a lawyer throughout this period. He was also denied access to a doctor for treatment to injuries resulting from the beatings he allegedly received. He was finally taken to the national gendarmerie for questioning for the first time on 13 November.According to his lawyer, he is charged in connection with interviews he conducted in the course of preparing a report on Boko Haram, the Jihadi terrorist group that is active in northern Cameroon as well as northeastern Nigeria and other nearby countries. The authorities say he should have shared his information with them.“The Cameroonian authorities do not seem to understand the vital importance of the principle of the protection of sources, which allows journalists to get access to sensitive information with greater ease,” RSF said.“It is unacceptable that a journalist who just did his job has been detained for such a long time and in such appalling conditions. We call on the authorities to free Ahmed Abba without further delay and to abandon all proceedings against him.”His trial began on 29 February but the military court has repeatedly adjourned its hearings and sent him back to prison. At the hearing on 25 April, the court rejected a motion by his lawyer, Charles Tchoungang, to abandon the prosecution on the grounds of the grave violations of Abba’s rights ever since his arrest.Abba is not the only Cameroonian journalist being prosecuted on this kind of charge. In January, RSF issued a press release condemning the trial of three journalists, Baba Wame, Rodrigue Ndeutchoua Tongue and Félix Cyriaque Ebolé Bola, on charges of failing to report a matter affecting state security. The next hearing is scheduled for 17 June.Cameroonian journalists are often the victims of abuses by the authorities and the police. The National Council for Communication, which is closely allied with the government, has closed five media outlets and suspended 11 journalists since the start of the year.Cameroon is ranked 126th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Ahmed Mansoor and four other pro-democracy activists pardoned and freed

first_img United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on United Arab Emirates Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders hails the decision by the president of the United Arab Emirates today to pardon blogger Ahmed Mansoor and four other pro-democracy activists a day after they were convicted of insulting the country’s leaders. All were expected to be released later in the day.After an unfair trial, the Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi sentenced Mansoor to three years’ imprisonment for insulting the leaders of the UAE and calling for anti-government demonstrations.Each of his four co-accused, lecturer Nasser bin Ghaith, and activists Farhad Salem Hassan, Ali Al-Khamis and Ahmed Abdul Khaleq, was also convicted under the criminal code of insulting the leadership and received a two-year prison sentence.The UAE legal system treated the case as a matter of state security so there was no appeal against the verdict and the only hope of the accused was a pardon from President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. “This is excellent news for Ahmed Mansoor and the four activists who will finally be released after eight months in prison. The perseverance of their families and all those who supported them in their campaign deserves our praise,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The verdict of the court handed down on 27 November is nonetheless shocking and illustrates the repressive security policy carried out by the government since the uprisings began in the Arab world.“We should like to recall that no tangible proof was presented against Mansoor during the trial, which ended, however, with an extremely harsh sentence. He is innocent and his only crime is having encouraged the government to undertake democratic reforms,” the press freedom organization added. Organisation News November 28, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ahmed Mansoor and four other pro-democracy activists pardoned and freed RSF joins other NGOs in amicus brief in WhatsApp suit against NSO Group News RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa “We urge the authorities to investigate the ill-treatment suffered by Mansoor and his co-accused in prison, as well as the threats received by his family. The UAE authorities have a duty to do all they can to protect all their citizens and guarantee their security.”The blogger and human rights activist was arrested on 8 April and charged in his capacity as administrator of the democracy discussion forum Al-Hewar (“dialog”), on which he and the four other activists – nicknamed “the UAE Five” – were accused of posting messages between July and October last year criticising the government’s policies.From 2 October this year, the five refused to attend hearings in protest against a trial they said was unfair and politically motivated, and was marred by numerous irregularities. They had been on hunger strike since 13 November. During the trial, the five were denied access to their lawyers who were prevented from interviewing prosecution witnesses. After their arrest, the UAE Five were the targets of a smear campaign launched on the Internet and carried by some local media outlets. Their critics, who accused them of treason, organised demonstrations outside the Abu Dhabi court and did not baulk at threatening the families of the accused.In a joint statement issued on 10 November the five accused the websites Lethal Character and Proud Emirati of being behind the campaign and of fanning a climate of hostility towards them and their families.In a statement issued on 9 November, Mansoor’s family said the campaign had intensified on the Internet, on television and in newspapers.At a trial hearing on 23 October, an audio recording of someone making death threats and calling for a demonstration against Mansoor was played in court. The blogger’s family issued a complaint against the person behind the recording, identified as the poet Saïd Bakhit Al-Kutubi, but so far no legal proceedings have been taken as a result. A relative of Nasser bin Ghaith was struck by a demonstrator outside the courtroom yesterday. The assailant was arrested. NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say to go further Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more News News Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns this campaign and regrets that no action has been taken against those orchestrating it.The organization calls on the UAE authorities to follow up the defence complaints and open an investigation, so that those behind the intimidation campaign are brought to justice. They must remain conscious of the duty to protect the safety of the five activists after their release.The UAE is among the countries under surveillance in the list of Internet enemies compiled by Reporters Without Borders in March this year. In recent months, the government has stepped up its pressure on netizens.

Students claim they are being denied vote in by-election by government

first_img Twitter Main Evening News, Sport and Obituaries Tuesday May 25th Pinterest Facebook Twitter By News Highland – November 10, 2010 Newsx Adverts 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic Facebook WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Students have claimed that the government has deliberately attempted to exclude them from the Donegal South West election.There have been complaints that thousands of students from the constituency may be without a ballot.Students are claiming the government deliberately fixed a Thursday for the by-election so they couldn’t leave their studies and get home to vote and they wouldn’t have time to apply for postal votes.Under law, those entitled to a postal vote have to complete their forms within 48 hours.Donegal County Council said as the 48 hours would have ended on a Saturday when there was no post they accepted applications until Monday.A spokesperson said students and others entitled to vote by post could have downloaded their application forms, completed them and posted them by land as they had to have the original college verification confirmation that they couldn’t get away from their studies.Independent candidate Thomas Pringle said it was a deliberate plan by the government to leave so little time because they know the student vote will go against them.He wondered why wasn’t the bye-election fixed for a Friday when students away at college could return home in time to vote.Union of Students in Ireland President Gary Redmond said his organisation had been trying for a long time to get voting on Saturdays when most students could return to their constituencies to vote. He added that with feared increases in fees, as well as other educational issues, most students were likely to vote against the government.One student without his first-time vote for a Dail seat will be 19-year-old Alan Cunningham, from St John’s Point, Dunkineely.He is a bio-medical science student at DIT in Kevin Street, Dublin. He said he will be unable to travel home for the Thursday vote because he has two compulsory laboratory sessions that day in college.He said he phoned Donegal council on Monday and was told that unless he could get his application in on that day he would be without a vote. He couldn’t get it in as he didn’t even have time to travel from Dublin with it.center_img Students claim they are being denied vote in by-election by government Pinterest Previous articleYoung driver who’s partner and daughter were killed in crash spared jailNext articleReplica firearm was found in car stopped by Gardai in Letterkenny News Highland Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry WhatsApp Google+ Google+ 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North Gardai continue to investigate Kilmacrennan firelast_img read more
