Veteran UN official named to new post overseeing measures to protect UN

Tun Myat, a national of Myanmar, was designated the new UN Security Coordinator, a full-time post at the level of Assistant Secretary-General set up late last year by the General Assembly on Secretary-General’s request. Last October, the Secretary-General released a report citing stark statistics on the “unabated” violence confronting UN personnel. Since 1992, 201 staff members lost their lives in the line of duty as a result of malicious acts, according to the report. Since 1994, 255 others were the victims of hostage taking. UN personnel “have also continued to be targets of rape and sexual assault, ambushes, armed robbery, attacks on humanitarian convoys, carjackings, harassment, and arrest and detention,” the Secretary-General wrote in recommending the creation of a full-time position to coordinate security. Mr. Myat has served as the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq since April 2000, and as the senior UN official resident in the country was also the United Nations Designated Official for Security. Prior to that, he spent over two decades with the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP). Until now, security coordination was one of the many responsibilities performed by Benon Sevan, the Executive Director of the Office of the Iraq Programme. read more

UN calls on Saudi Arabia to release jailed human rights defenders including

Since 15 May, at least 15 Government critics have been detained, Ravina Shamdasani, OHCHR Spokesperson told a press briefing in Geneva.“We understand that eight of them were later temporarily released until the completion of their procedural review,” Ms. Shamdasani said, noting that in some cases, “their whereabouts are unknown and there is a serious lack of transparency” in processing their cases.In mid-May, a crackdown on prominent women’s rights defenders in Saudi Arabia seems to have kicked off a spate of arrests. In June, after an official visit, Ben Emmerson, UN special rapporteur on anti-terrorism, painted a damning picture of a country which he said was using anti-terror laws to systematically justify torture, suppress dissent and imprison human rights defenders.“While the authorities have made statements about possible serious charges, that could lead to prison terms of up to 20 years, it is unclear whether charges have been laid in any of these cases,” Ms. Shamdasani continued.,Among those who reportedly remain imprisoned are Hatoon al-Fassi, a leading voice for women’s rights, and one of the first women to acquire a Saudi drivers’ license after the ban was lifted in late June.“She was detained between 21 and 24 June,” continued the spokesperson. Others in detention include human rights defender Khaled Al-Omair – who has not been contactable since he was imprisoned on 6 July – as well as women’s rights activists Loujain al-Hathloul, Eman al-Nafjan, Aziza al-Yousef, Nouf Abdelaziz and Mayaa al-Zahrani. 80-year old lawyer Ibrahim al-Modaimeegh, and activist Abdulaziz Meshaal are also imprisoned, said Ms. Shamdasani.She underscored that OHCHR urges the Government to “unconditionally release all human rights defenders and activists who have been detained for their peaceful human rights work, including their decades-long campaigns for the lifting of the driving ban for women.”Stressing that investigations must be held in a transparent manner, with full respect for due process rights, Ms. Shamdasani concluded by spelling out that “all human rights defenders should be able to carry out their crucial human rights work without fear of reprisals or prosecution.” read more

Tiger found dead in Bengal forest

first_imgKolkata: The Royal Bengal tiger, spotted on several occasions in forests of West Bengal’s Jhargram, West Midnapore and Bankura districts since early March this year, was on Friday found dead in the state’s Lalgarh forest, an official said. The big cat, which was first spotted on March 2 by a camera trapping exercise in the forest of Lalgarh, formerly a Maoist belt, had escaped several attempts by forests officials to catch it.”The tiger was found dead today (Friday). The reason of the death is not yet confirmed. It could be confirmed after the autopsy,” Principal Chief Conservator of Forests, Wildlife & Chief Wildlife Warden, West Bengal, Ravi Kant Sinha told IANS. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsAccording to local people, several injury marks were found on dead tiger.”It is an unfortunate incident. Forest officials have put best efforts to catch it but they failed. It is obviously a failure. Why could it (tiger) not be captured despite several efforts made by officials?,” State Wildlife Board Member Biswajit Roychowdhury told IANS.According to him, it was an unusual situation for the tiger as the Lalgarh forest is not seen as suitable habitat for tigers given its poor prey base. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedFollowing the reports of killing of cattle, the state Forest Department installed several cameras to confirm the presence of the tiger in the forests and spotted it in one of them installed in the Lalgarh forest, which was not seen as suitable tiger habitat.Since then, several attempts were made to catch it including by laying traps in several locations in the forests and by using drones for searching in forests, but efforts went in vain. Recently, the tiger was caught in a net laid by the officials, but managed to escape.People living in the surrounding areas were terrorised by the presence of the tiger.Forest officials had earlier said that the tiger might have sneaked into the forest from Simlipal reserve in neighbouring Odisha.last_img read more

Kolomiyets said the earthquake originated 600 kilometers (375 miles) under the sea bed and with the tremors so far down they have the potential to spread quite far.The Emergency Situations Ministry said they have not recorded any casualties or damage from the quake.A big aftershock came about nine hours after the first quake. The Russian Academy of Sciences measured it at 7.0, while the U.S. Geological Survey put it at magnitude 6.8.Russian news agencies reported that residents of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on the Kamchatka peninsula in the Okhotsk Sea felt the first quake for about five minutes. Residents ran out of the buildings. School children were evacuated.Tremors from the first quake were felt in Moscow, prompting some people to evacuate from buildings across the city.Tremors are extremely rare in Moscow, the last recorded instance was in the 1977.

Jobless figures plunge as government goes hard on undeclared labour

first_imgThe government’s pledge to clamp down on undeclared labour appears to have helped reduce the number of registered unemployed considerably last month, the latest figures released by the statistical service show.The number of registered unemployed fell by 3,052 in September to 27,951 compared to the month before and 18 per cent compared to the respective month of 2016, Cystat said in a statement on its website on Wednesday. The reduction in unemployment matches the figure of new registrations of workers with the Social Insurance Service ahead of a government deadline that expired on September 3.The seasonally adjusted reduction of the number of registered unemployed last month was 694 compared to August and 5,430 compared to September 2016, Cystat said.Last month, the number of registered jobless dropped in the area of public administration by 1,208 compared to a year before, by 1,207 in construction, 1,013 in trade, 514 in financial and insurance, 475 in manufacturing and 457 in newcomers, Cystat said. The number of registered unemployed in September is the lowest since November 2011, the year in which the Cypriot government was shut out of financial markets and an explosion knocked out the Vassilikos power plant, causing island-wide outages affecting economic activity.On August 30, Andreas Apostolou, a senior labour relations inspector at the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance said that the number of workers registered with social insurance ahead of a government deadline expiring on September 3, was 3,100. Employers who failed to report their unregistered workers would otherwise face fines of up to €3,500 per person.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Is LNG plant a dead duck

first_imgBy Elias HazouTHROUGH deliberate delay or wavering, Cyprus may be letting plans slip for an onshore LNG plant, a gas expert has warned.Charles Ellinas, former head of the national oil and gas corporation Kretyk, told the Cyprus Mail that a confluence of developments leads one to conclude the liquid natural gas project is becoming increasingly unlikely.He was commenting, among others, on a report by Reuters yesterday claiming that Israel may have put on the backburner earlier plans to pump its gas reserves into a future export plant in Cyprus.“Israel’s new plans throw Cypriot developments into doubt as investors would require more gas than Cyprus has on offer to make returns on multi-billion dollar investments,” the news agency said.Reuters quoted one unnamed source involved in developing Cyprus’ gas reserves as saying: “If Israel has really ditched Cyprus as a partner to develop the region’s gas resources, then we (Cyprus) really do have to find quite a lot more gas if we want to become a viable exporter, and that would inevitably throw our plans back by several years.”According to the same news story, energy companies with concessions in Israeli gas fields are actively exploring a twin-track export policy: piping gas to idle LNG terminals in Egypt, and building floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) platforms above the Leviathan field to ship LNG to Asian and South American markets, where gas fetches better prices. At the same time, talks are underway between Israeli and Turkish companies on a pipeline from the Leviathan field to Turkish shores.And in a report on Sunday, local daily Kathimerini suggested the Israeli government as well as energy stakeholders feel Cyprus is not serious about pooling its own resources with Israel’s into an LNG terminal on the island.Kathimerini said the absence of concrete action from Nicosia over the last year has puzzled the Israelis, who have come to suspect that the government here is deliberately dragging its feet. To the Israelis, it appears the Cypriots are stalling due to ongoing peace talks and the possibility of energy collaboration with Turkey once and if a settlement to the Cyprus question is achieved.This is despite public assertions by President Anastasiades, who just this past weekend ruled out discussing natural gas as part of the island’s reunification talks.Anastasiades did, however, go on to say that Turkey can be Cyprus’ customer after a solution, but not a strategic partner.Publicly, the administration insists it’s committed to the land-based gas terminal – precluding a pipeline to Turkey as well as any other export alternatives such as FLNG.During an investors’ conference held in the United States late last year, Noble Energy floated – as one option – a plan to divert some of the gas in Israel’s Leviathan field to a mooted LNG terminal at Vassilikos.But since then, says Charles Ellinas, the Americans and the Israelis have not got any feedback from Cyprus.To date, Cyprus’ proven reserves are insufficient for an onshore LNG plant. At least 5.5 trillion cubic feet (tcf) are required to render viable such a facility.Actual recoverable reserves within the Aphrodite well – operated by Noble Energy – are most likely 3.1 tcf. And an additional site in the Block 12 license – where Noble intends to drill later this year – is not expected to hold more than 1 tcf, bringing the total to around 4 tcf, still not good enough for a land-based production plant.Then again, according to Ellinas, that quantity is ideal for an FLNG vessel. The consortium with the license on Israel’s Leviathan gas field, he said, is currently designing an FLNG platform with a capacity of precisely 4 tcf.“Unless something happens fast – and it doesn’t look like it – Cyprus may de facto be forced to abandon the LNG project and switch to FLNG instead,” he said.Ellinas anticipates that Noble will present its development plan for Block 12 around mid-2015. By then, the US energy outfit will have a far better idea of the combined gas reserves in Aphrodite as well as in the second well they’re drilling this year.“My guess is they’ll go for FLNG,” he said.Meanwhile, state gas company DEFA said yesterday it has received four proposals to supply natural gas to the island.In January, DEFA invited proposals for an interim solution for power generation before Cypriot gas reserves come on line.DEFA did not release details of the bidders, saying it was bound by confidentiality agreements. Based on its initial invitation for proposals, it was seeking a supply line of seven to 10 years, starting in January 2016.The state-controlled company said at the time it wanted a comprehensive solution involving all commercial and infrastructure requirements including sourcing, transportation and processing.DEFA is by law the sole importer and distributor of natural gas in Cyprus. Once it clinches a deal for natural gas with a supplier, DEFA would then sell the fuel to the Electricity Authority of Cyprus. Any contract therefore requires back-to-back agreements – one between DEFA and the supplier, the other between DEFA and the EAC.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
