There can be no justification for ordering his arrest,” said RSF Secretary General Robert Ménard. “The fact that he has gone underground is a very alarming sign of the treatment meted out to journalists detained by the police. The Head of the police said in December 2000, however, that measures would be taken to ‘harmonise the relationship between the police and journalists’.” RSF has learned that Victor Obure, the Garissa correspondent of the East African Standard, has decided to go underground because of fears for his safety. According to police sources, the Criminal Investigation Department – CID – called for his arrest a week ago following an article which reported the extortion of thousands of shillings from the inhabitants of Garissa by police, during a crackdown on illegal immigrants in the city. RSF also gave a reminder that on 22 March 2002, The People Daily newspaper and its Chief Editor George Mbugguss, were ordered to pay 20 million Kenyan shillings (about 300,000 Euros), to Nicholas Biwott, Minister for Trade and the Interior, for “libel”. “The secret history of Moi-Nyache, an article published on 10 March 1999, claimed that Mr. Biwott, then Minister for the Eastern African Community, was involved in the controversial awarding of a tender for the construction of a hydro-electricity dam. The newspaper claimed that the “Turkwell Gorge” project had been awarded to a French company under dubious circumstances.

ESG roundup: Redington identifies engagement evidence shortfalls

first_imgThe firm interviewed 104 managers from across the globe, representing over $10trn (€8.4trn) in combined assets under management, on a vast spectrum of areas relating to ESG.Redington is one of 12 UK investment consultancies that, viewing themselves as a critcal link between asset managers and asset owners, recently banded together to form a group seeking to improve sustainable investment practices across the investment industry.Ex-AP4’s Erlandsson’s Anthropocene Fixed Income Institute officially liveThe Anthropocene Fixed Income Institute (AFII), founded by Ulf Erlandsson, a former portfolio manager at Swedish buffer fund AP4, today announced its official launch.Supported by the Growald Family Fund, a New York-based venture philanthropy fund investing in the rapid transition to a clean energy future, AFII is premised on the view that fixed income markets, despite their size and crucial role for providing finance, are severely lagging in terms of climate change mitigation.Its mission is ‘to monitor, advocate for and influence the impact of fixed income markets in the age of human induced-climate change”.Erlandsoon was one of the pioneers in the green bond market, setting up AP4’s green bond portfolio while he was at the Swedish buffer fund, from 2009 to 2017. He left AP4 to move to Granit Funds, but left there after just over a year.In addition to being founder and executive chair of AFII, he has recently been appointed fellow on the investment advisory board of impact-focussed wealth manager Tribe Capital.Although AFII only announced its official launch today, Erlandsson has been working on its set-up since the beginning of July and has already published pieces of work under the AFII name.“I have been working on the AFII setup since beginning of July, but it has taken until now to get some of the formalities and strategy in place,” he told IPE. “There’s been a couple of really important topics to write about, so haven’t been able to be quiet in the run-up.”One of those topics is the Carmichael coal mine under construction in Australia, with Erlandsson publishing research investigating the fixed income funding flow for the project, down to individual bond ISIN codes and global investor holdings of the bonds.The AFII is advocating a reversal of that capital flow, which would affect bond prices, the project’s underlying cost-of-capital “and hundreds of millions – even billions – of tonnes of future CO2 emissions”.According to AFII’s website, it is building out the organisation and “will update with team details accordingly”.BMO points to ‘fundamental’ engagement shiftStewardship will increasingly be seen as being about investors’ responsibilities for shaping the market and the economy as a whole rather than just about the relationship with individual companies, according to BMO Global Asset Management.The asset manager outlined the expectation, which is also an ask, in a report setting out its track record on engagement over the past 20 years.It said it was predicting that collaborative engagement initiatives, which “came of age” in the 2010s, would increase as work began with a wider pool of stakeholders to create meaningful change.Kristi Mitchem, CEO at BMO GAM, said: “For investors to address systemic challenges, such as climate change, there will need to be a sharper focus than in the past on public policy, widening engagement beyond the company level to build relationships with new stakeholders, including NGOs and academic experts.“A collaborative approach between investors is key to making this a success, both to muster the resources to make these changes and to present a unified voice to increase influence.”BMO GAM said that, on average, 20% of its engagement activities each year were through collaborative initiatives, such as Climate Action 100+, Farm Animal Investment Risk and Return, and the Workforce Disclosure Initiative.Around three-quarters (72%) of BMO GAM’s current engagement was now linked to the Sustainable Development Goals, with the remaining 28% focussed on corporate governance, it said.Looking for IPE’s latest magazine? Read the digital edition here. More than a third of asset managers surveyed by Redington were unable to provide an example of a climate change-related engagement effort, according to the consultancy.It also highlighted that fewer than two-thirds had an engagement policy on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) matters, and that 60% of respondents could provide an example of when climate-related risks and/or opportunities had influenced buying or selling decisions despite 76% saying they considered these factors.Nick Samuels, head of manager research at Redington, said: “We would expect all our managers, regardless of asset class, to have at least one, if not several, examples of climate change related engagements with their portfolio companies.“Managers who thoroughly analyse – and take action on – risks are crucial to driving progress so, moving forward, we strongly hope to see this number increasing.”last_img read more

Mohali Test: Match evenly poised after Sehwag’s fifty

first_imgRiding on a brutal, swift counter attack by Virender Sehwag, India raced to 110 for two at stumps, in reply to visitors’ challenging first innings total of 428, on the second day of the first Test at the PCA Stadium in Mohali.At the end of day’s play, Rahul Dravid was batting on 21 and nightwatchman Ishant Sharma was on zero.Sehwag batted in a manner only he is capable of and was also dismissed in a manner which is pretty similar to some of his earlier dismissals.He smashed the Aussie bowlers to all corners of the park scoring 59 in 54 balls with the help of 10 boundaries before Mitchell Johnson banged one short but ball arrived late on Sehwag as he had closed the face of the bat. It was Michael Clarke who took a dolly at extra cover.Sehwag with this 23rd Test half-century, now, has 50 plus knocks in 11 consecutive Tests and also shares the world record for most of number of 50s with Gautam Gambhir and Vivian Richards. Courtesy Sehwag’s blistering innings, India trail by 318 runs.Sehwag stamped his authority as he hit Ben Hilfenhaus over third man, punched Doug Bollinger through covers, steered Mitchell Johnson to deep thirdman and heaved Nathan Hauritz over extra cover for boundaries that made the pitch, which till then seemed a difficult one, look easy to bat on.He added 81 with Gautam Gambhir (25) in only 13.2 overs before the latter fell leg before to a Johnson delivery that kept low.Earlier in the day, India were dealt a ‘Paineful blow’ as rookie wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Paine scored a gutsy 92 to defy the Indian bowlers from wrapping the Aussie innings quickly.advertisementPaine, who was dropped on nought by the Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni off Zaheer Khan on Friday, cashed in on the opportunity as he shared three important partnerships of 53, 82 and 54 runs with Shane Watson, Mitchell Johnson and Ben Hilfenhaus respectively. That helped Australia bat for 151.4 overs and reach a score which looks imposing on a slow track.Playing only his third Test, Paine showed a lot of composure on a difficult track as he hit 12 boundaries in his 196-ball knock. He was unlucky to miss what would have been a well deserved maiden Test ton, being caught by VVS Laxman in the slips off Zaheer.With PTI inputslast_img read more

Premier League punishes Manchester City with academy transfer ban

first_imgManchester City have been fined 300,000 pounds and banned from signing academy players for two years after breaching Premier League transfer rules.City were found to have approached the family of two young players, who were registered with other clubs.The players in question were an 11-year-old who joined City from Everton last year and a 15-year-old midfielder from Wolverhampton Wanderers.The Premier League club now cannot sign youngsters aged between 10 and 18 who have been registered with Premier League or EFL clubs in the past 18 months.Part of the ban will only come into effect if the club re offends in the next three years.Last month, Liverpool were fined 200,000 pounds and banned from signing youngsters for two years.It was ruled the Reds had broken Premier League rules by offering inducements to the family of an 11-year-old Stoke City player.”The Premier League has sanctioned Manchester City FC for breaches of its Youth Development Rules,” goal.com quoted the Premier League as saying in a statement.”The breaches concern approaches to two separate Academy players whilst they were each registered with another club,” the statement added.last_img read more

An uneasy peace Deal reached to open Unistoten gate to CGL

first_imgKathleen MartensAPTN NewsAnger greeted news Wednesday that hereditary Wet’suwet’en chiefs brokered a peaceful end to a potentially violent pipeline standoff in northern B.C.Leader Freda Huson stormed out of a closed-door meeting at the Unist’ot’en camp south of Houston, B.C., and slammed the door.She just learned chiefs promised the RCMP she and her partner Warner Naziel would abide by rules of an interim court injunction in exchange for calling off a police raid.Chiefs wanted to prevent a repeat of Monday when heavily RCMP officers stormed a checkpoint on sister clan Gidimt’en territory and arrested 14 people.The homemade barricades blocking pipeline company Coastal GasLink, a subsidiary of Trans-Canada, from crossing the Morice River bridge were next before chiefs stepped in.“CGL will receive soft access,” Chief Na’Moks told reporters, who were allowed into the room to hear details of the agreement after about two hours.“I don’t have any respect for them,” Nam’oks added of the Calgary-based company.“If I seem upset, you better believe we are.”(Trucks parked on the road leading to the Unist’ot’en healing centre to block access. Photo: Kathleen Martens/APTN)In a tentative agreement worked out between the RCMP and Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs Wednesday evening, the nation made three demands to Brenda Butterworth-Carr, deputy commissioner of the RCMP in B.C. who is a member of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Han Nation, Yukon.In part, that the RCMP immediately remove the exclusion area to allow access for media and others, confirm that RCMP officers will not interfere with any Wet’suwet’en members accessing their territory for trapping or other traditional practices, confirm that officers will not enter the healing centre and will engage with the Wet’suwet’en Nation to work on a protocol for access to the healing centre that will protect members from pro-pipeline protestors and Coastal GasLink employees.The meeting then heard the RCMP’s reply.“I commit to you that the RCMP will remain respectful of the healing centre,” said the response from the RCMP. “Our officers will not enter the healing centre unless invited and we will work with you to ensure that others are respectful of your centre.“Further, the RCMP will not interfere with your members access to the territory for the purposes of trapping and or traditional practices. I will also restate our commitment to the respect the right of peaceful, lawful and safe protest.”The tentative agreement would have the Unist’oten camp remove the barrier and allow workers from Coastal GasLink through the site by 2 p.m. on Thursday. Talks Thursday may go past that time.Huson didn’t return to the meeting in the centre’s dining room that stretched into the late afternoon.(The healing centre at the Unist’ot’en camp. Photo: Kathleen Martens/APTN)The windows in the room were covered with sheets and blankets to prevent police from being able to see or shoot inside, said Brenda Michell, a Wet’suwet’en woman staying at the camp and niece of Unistot’en hereditary Chief Knedabeas.She said the peace agreement was a surprise and didn’t know how to react, except to say opening the gate to contract workers worried her.She asked the chiefs, who spent Tuesday night and Wednesday morning negotiating with RCMP, to amend the agreement at a meeting scheduled with police Thursday, to keep the gate locked and opened only when CGL workers arrived.“The gate is protecting us from the outside,” she said. “I can sleep at night knowing it’s there.”Michell and others at the camp looked exhausted.They were girding for a police raid when Knedabeas arrived instead with three members of an RCMP liaison team and news reporters, including a two-person team from APTN News.It was the second surprise in as many nights.Michell said they were stunned Tuesday when people who “escaped” the Gidimt’en raid pounded on the door.“We were all in shock when they managed to come back here,” she said, not revealing how many there were.“We were relieved and happy to see them.”(A convoy on the Morice River road includes hereditary chiefs, media and RCMP. Photo: Kathleen Martens/APTN)Reporters were told escapees were in bad shape mentally but there were trained people at the healing centre to help them.Na’Moks said avoiding any further trauma to more people is why chiefs made the deal.“We want media here to witness our agreement with the RCMP,” he said.But the camp refused to divulge its wifi password, preventing most media outlets, including APTN from reporting what was happening until returning to Houston later.It was another of the hurdles media faced in covering the story that generated headlines around the world.On Monday, RCMP barred reporters from gaining access to the Gidimt’en checkpoint by erecting a roadblock about 20 kilometres away. Media who were already behind the lines were allowed to stay.The roadblock opened briefly Wednesday to allow the chiefs’ convoy through to camp, although Mounties stopped each vehicle to record the names of people inside and their licence numbers.The roadblock was at a site without cellular phone service, so reporters couldn’t relay information to their newsrooms or post on social media.Supporters of the roadblock and camp built a fire and shelter outside the roadblock that quickly became a meeting place.That’s where chiefs initially planned to announce the peace agreement Wednesday morning before deciding to make the hour-long drive to the healing centre that saw one media outlet end up in the ditch and miss the news conference.When the convoy reached Gidimt’en checkpoint it was reporters’ first opportunity to see the aftermath of Monday’s raid.There were felled trees pushed off the road – scattered branches, a jacket and backpacks left behind, and the red plywood gate some protesters reportedly tied themselves to was thrown in the ditch.(The Gidimt’en sign at the checkpoint on January 9. Photo: Simon Charland/APTN)The Gidimt’en signs were still up and shelters remained standing, which followed the judge’s instructions in the interim injunction granted Dec. 14, 2018.A canvas cook tent that caught fire was still there, showing char marks on one wall.Gidimt’en supporters said everyone arrested Tuesday was released from custody by Wednesday night.Upon reaching the camp, Na’Moks appeared overcome with emotion as he stopped in the snow to survey the narrow bridge over the Morice River.A large, vertical sign declaring ‘Unist’ot’en’ in black and white caught his attention, as did three vehicles, including a dump truck, parked on the bridge to stop police.Knedabeas was visibly angry and quizzed people operating the gate.“Why are these here?” he said of the vehicles.“That wasn’t the plan.”[email protected]@katmartelast_img read more

Man City 31 Everton Jesus double sends hosts top

first_imgManchester City are back at the top of the Premier League after beating Everton 3-1 after a Gabriel Jesus braceAfter suffering their first league defeat of the 2018/19 campaign last weekend at Chelsea, Manchester City have bounced back to reclaim top spot from Liverpool in the standings.Things got off to a slow start at the Etihad Stadium with Richarlison coming closest to opening the scoring for Everton after volleying over Lucas Digne’s cross.The visitors nearly scored an own goal when defender Michael Keane almost put Ilkay Gundogan’s cross past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.However, Everton soon conceded when summer recruit Yerry Mina gave the ball away while attempting a back pass that enabled Leroy Sane to set-up Jesus for City’s opener.The pair teamed up again for City’s second with Sane’s cross enabling Jesus to head the ball past Pickford just five minutes after the break.Victor Wanyama, Tottenham Hotspur, Premier LeaguePochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R.

Guardiola We are better than last season

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his side has improved since winning the Premier League title last season.Despite losing two games and trailing four points behind leaders Liverpool so far in the Premier League this season, Guardiola insists his current City has improved since their record-breaking season last season when they won the title with 100 points.“In little details, we are better than last season, which is normal because we have more time together,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.“Our process, our build-ups, our high pressing we can use different movements, we have more alternatives to defend into attack and we are more solid when we defend deeper.”Manchester United delayed City’s title celebrations last season with a shock 3-2 victory at the Etihad, but Jose Mourinho’s side lost 1-0 to West Brom a week later and handed their bitter rivals the title.“Even in games when you are winning 2-0 or 3-0 with 20 minutes left to play I am still not comfortable in saying it’s already done,” he said, recalling United’s incredible comeback from 2-0 down to 3-2 win.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

Of course, we dropped points, that happens, but after that, we were always there, which was the most remarkable thing and what I give the most importance.“Winning cups or the Champions League that’s six or seven games where you have to be good, but in the Premier League it can be every three days, which is why it’s the title I like the most.”last_img read more
