Security Council members call on Iraq to cooperate on missing Kuwaitis

The official — Yuliy Vorontsov, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s High-level Coordinator on Iraq — briefed the Council this morning in a closed-door session. Following the suspension of the meeting, the Council President, Ambassador Jeremy Greenstock of the United Kingdom, told reporters that “there has been no movement whatsoever” on the issue in recent months.”This is one area where the Security Council is unanimous on Iraq — in support for the work of Ambassador Vorontsov and for his future and his continuing efforts, and also in expressing deep concern at the plight of Kuwaiti and third country nationals still missing,” said the Council President. He added that the members hoped that “at some stage soon and at last” there would be some progress in what was a strictly humanitarian issue.Ambassador Greenstock said the Council members, convinced that “there is more information to be given from the Iraqi side,” had urged Baghdad to cooperate fully with Ambassador Vorontsov and with all others dealing with the issue.Noting that the matter had already taken “far too long” to resolve, Ambassador Greenstock said Council members “were very keen that when Member States have contacts with Iraq, when the Secretariat has contacts with Iraq, that this issue should continue to be brought up and must be ground away at until we have some results.” read more

DR Congo Security Council extends UN mission intervention force for one year

Unanimously adopting a wide-ranging resolution, the Council renewed the mandate of both MONUSCO and its Intervention Brigade within the peacekeeping mission’s authorized troop ceiling of 19,815 military personnel, 760 military observers and staff officers, 391 police personnel, and 1,050 personnel of formed police units, until 31 March 2015.The Council decided that future reconfigurations of MONUSCO and its mandate should be determined on the basis of the evolution of the situation on the ground and, in the context of implementation by the Government of DRC and all other signatories of the region-wide 2013 Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework.Further, the Council said it would also consider progress towards the following objectives, in line with the priorities of protection of civilians, stabilisation and support to the Framework’s implementation: reduction of threats posed by Congolese and foreign armed groups, and violence against civilians, including sexual and gender-based violence, “to a level that can be effectively managed by the Congolese justice and security institutions” and stabilization through the establishment of functional, professional, and accountable State institutions.In light of these objectives, the Council today authorized MONUSCO to take all necessary measures to perform a range of tasks, including, among others: protect civilians; neutralize armed groups through the Intervention Brigade in a “robust, highly mobile and versatile manner and in strict compliance with international law;” monitor implementation of the arms embargo; and provide support to national and international judicial processes in the DRC.Running throughout the resolution is the Council’s deep concern about the humanitarian situation in the DRC and its strong condemnation of all armed groups operating in the region and their violations of international law, and abuses of human rights. In that regard, the text demands that the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), the Bakata-Katanga and various Mayi Mayi groups “cease immediately all forms of violence and other destabilizing activities and that their members immediately and permanently disband, lay down their arms and demobilize children from their ranks.” read more

With Syrias culture near point of no return UN agency to create

Based at its office in Beirut, Lebanon, the Observatory will maintain an online platform where national and international stakeholders will share information on damaged structures, looted artefacts and all forms of endangered intangible heritage.“In some areas we are reaching the point of no return where Syria’s cultural heritage is concerned,” cautioned Irina Bokova, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).“The destruction of heritage represents a cultural haemorrhage in addition to the tragic humanitarian crisis and suffering experienced by the people of Syria,” she added.In particular, Ms. Bokova highlighted the recent extensive damage to the historical synagogue of Eliyahu Hanabi in Damascus.“The destruction of one of the oldest synagogues in Syria is a new blow against its religious and cultural heritage, which has already suffered tremendous damage,” she said, referring in particular to the fact that Syria is host to highly significant monuments of Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths.“This synagogue bears witness to the cultural diversity of Syria’s history and to the potential of peaceful coexistence among all communities in the country,” Ms. Bokova concluded.The decision to create the Observatory was made at a UNESCO meeting entitled “Rallying the International Community to Safeguard Syria’s Cultural Heritage”, attended by more than 120 experts from 22 countries to share information, devise policies and improve cooperation during the conflict and beyond. Representatives of major international auction houses also took part in the meeting.In addition, the participants also called on the UN Security Council to consider a resolution to facilitate the restitution of stolen and illegally exported cultural objects from Syria and ban their sale and transfer. They also underlined the need to “demilitarize cultural sites,” preventing their use as military bases or targets in keeping with existing international law, notably the Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict (1954), ratified by Syria.They also emphasized the need to train and raise awareness of police and customs officers in the region and beyond on their role in fighting illicit trafficking in cultural objects.The conflict in Syria has affected all six of its World Heritage sites, UNESCO reiterated, including through illicit excavation. The UN agency added that there is evidence that at least the Ancient City of Aleppo and the Crac des Chevaliers have been used for military purposes, subjected to direct shelling and targeted explosions.Intangible cultural heritage, including cultural practices, performing arts and more, is also exposed to serious damage due to social fragmentation, displacement and migration.“It is vital that the media raise public awareness about the crisis of Syria’s cultural heritage,” said Francesco Bandarin, Assistant UNESCO Director-General for Culture. “Art traders and buyers must be made aware of the risk of illicit trafficking and that international mafia organizations are using the crisis to sell both genuine and fake artefacts from the country.” read more

The shot Ohio States LaQuinton Ross grew up to make

LOS ANGELES – When Ohio State arrived at the Staples Center Tuesday afternoon and was notified it would inhabit the Lakers’ clubhouse during its stay in Los Angeles, LaQuinton Ross called dibs on a particular maple-finished closet. “I called dibs on (Kobe Bryant)’s locker,” the sophomore forward said. Bryant is Ross’ favorite player. Getting the privilege to sit in the same seat, walk on the carpet and play in the same building as the future NBA Hall of Famer served as motivation for the 6-foot-8 sharpshooter. Thursday night against Arizona, Ross might as well have been wearing the No. 24 white, purple and gold uniform his hero routinely sports in his home arena. With two seconds left in the Sweet 16 contest between the No. 2-seeded Buckeyes and No. 6-seeded Wildcats, Ross hit a 3-pointer from the left arch, propelling OSU to a 73-70 victory and into the Elite 8. Ross received the ball from junior guard Aaron Craft, whose game-winning 3-pointer against Iowa State last weekend kept OSU’s tournament run alive. “I said, ‘Knock down,’ as I passed it, so he better have made it,” Craft said. It was a shot eerily similar to the buzzer-beaters the Staples Center crowd has grown accustomed to seeing from Bryant throughout the 34-year-old’s time in Los Angeles. The make from Ross is a highlight not previously topped by the 20-year-old, and it capped a career-game in OSU’s most important bash of the season. Ross finished with 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting, 14 of which came in the second half. Down the stretch, with the two heavyweight programs trading basket for basket, it was Ross – not junior forward Deshaun Thomas or Craft – that OSU went to in need of points. “This is what every player grows up looking at on TV and wants to hit that big shot, wants to win the game and hit the big shot in the NCAA Tournament or the NBA,” Ross said. “It just feels great to be here right now.” Just one possession prior to Ross getting the ball from Craft with the seconds ticking down, he had wanted to escape the Staples Center in a hurry. With OSU up, 70-67, Arizona senior guard Mark Lyons drove straight at Ross, got fouled and made the layup and ensuing free throw, tying the game. Ross put his hands on his head before covering up his face. Following the game, Ross’ teammates said he had tears in his eyes after the play. The sadness and frustration quickly turned to joy after the game-winning shot went through the net. Earlier in the season, that ability to let a previous play go and move on to the next one wasn’t there for Ross. “LaQuinton has really grown in a lot of areas,” said coach Thad Matta. “He’s really become prideful in the little things in his game and it’s really propelled him to be a better basketball player. I’m proud of him.” One area of his game that will likely go unnoticed following an offensive outburst is his defense – something that kept him off the floor for most of the first half. “I told him you’re either going to be a defender or I’m not putting you back in the basketball game, and to his credit, he did a really good job,” Matta said. Ross played like a super-sub in the second half, drawing comparisons to former NBA Sixth Man of the Year James Harden from his teammates. “To this point, I think he’s done a phenomenal job playing his role. I think he’s not really known for his defense, but he’s really been trying on that and putting the work in,” Craft said. It’s the 3-pointer with two seconds left, though, that Ross and his teammates will forever remember, though. “Q’s going to talk about that shot for the rest of his life. He’s never going to let us hear the end of it,” said sophomore forward Sam Thompson. Thanks to that shot, Thompson and his team get to keep playing. OSU will face No. 9 seed Wichita State Saturday at 7:05 p.m. with a spot in the Final Four on the line. read more

Trump 100 ready to shut down USMexico border despite being warned of

first_img Short URL The volume of vulnerable populations that’s arriving is unsustainable … The humanitarian situation cannot be ignored and the security situation cannot be ignored.Trump said Mexican officials had reacted to his threat to close the border last week by clamping down on the caravans of migrants fleeing poverty and violence in the three Central American countries.Mexico “made a big step over the past two days”, he said, adding that they would have to continue if they don’t want the border closed.He also defended his decision to cut off “hundreds of millions of dollars” in US aid to the three countries, accusing them of arranging the caravans of migrants.The three “don’t do anything for us,” he said.Long delays at border ports On Monday, Nielsen ordered an “emergency surge” of personnel to deal with the situation, including moving 750 staff to areas of the border where the migrants arrive.Many were being diverted from official ports, leading to slowdowns in processing arriving visitors and commercial vehicles.Delays for incoming traffic were three hours at Brownsville, Texas, for the second straight day, and more than two hours in other areas.On the Mexican side, Andres Morales Arreola, head of operations for border crossings in Chihuahua state, said the border between Ciudad Juarez and El Paso had “collapsed” because so many US border officials have been reassigned to deal with the migrant influx.Long queues have formed at the border since Thursday, with wait times of up to eight hours for those trying to cross.Ciudad Juarez Mayor Armando Cabada Alvidrez called on the city’s bustling manufacturing sector to temporarily cut back shipments to the US in order to reduce the backup.- © AFP 2019   US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump said he is “100%” prepared to close down the US-Mexico border, warning Congress and Central American governments to take action to stem the flow of migrants into the country.Delays were already increasing at several key border crossings as Trump ratcheted up pressure on Democrats in Congress to toughen US laws against illegal immigrants, threatening to hurt the US economy in the name of border security.“It is a national emergency on the border,” Trump said.If Mexico does not stop migrants from transiting across its territory, and if Congress does not act, he said, “the border’s going to be closed, 100%”.“Sure it’s going to have a negative impact on the economy,” he said. “Security is more important to me than trade.”Trump said Democrats were blocking reforms for political reasons but could fix the problem “in 45 minutes”.He was not specific, but Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has asked Congress to give border officials the power to forcibly repatriate Central American illegal immigrants, including children who arrived alone, back to their countries.The threat to close the frontier, which handled some $612 billion worth of trade in 2018, sent shivers through the economy, and drew warnings from allies of the president.“Closing down the border would have potentially catastrophic economic impact on our country, and I would hope we would not be doing that sort of thing,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said.McConnell’s call was backed by the Chamber of Commerce, which said in a statement that while it supported immigration reform, closing the border “would inflict severe economic harm on American families, workers, farmers and manufacturers across the United States”.100,000 migrants a month Despite Trump’s tough rhetoric, Mexico’s foreign minister said he had spoken with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had told him the border would not be shut.“Until today, the secretary of state of the United States and his team have told us: this is not the policy we are going to apply, closing points on the border,” Marcelo Ebrard said at a press conference.Ebrard added Mexico continued to maintain “a good dialogue” with US authorities and that normal border traffic was expected “as soon as possible”.Homeland Security officials meanwhile said they were preparing for the possibility of a shutdown of at least some border entry points as they divert staff to deal with the flood of migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, expected to hit nearly 100,000 a month.Officials said facilities for handling the migrants — who for the moment cannot be sent back after they cross the border and request asylum — are overtaxed and understaffed, creating hazardous conditions.“We are in a full blown emergency. The bottom line is all options are on the table right now,” a senior Homeland Security official, who declined to be named, told journalists yesterday.  US President Donald Trump 15,970 Views Trump ‘100% ready’ to shut down US-Mexico border despite being warned of ‘catastrophic economic impact’ “Sure it’s going to have a negative impact on the economy.

Malcolm Turnbull Multicultural Australia is united strong successful

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Prime Minister released a new multicultural statement earlier this week, on Harmony Day, which coincided with the partyroom meeting regarding a change in the section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975, whereby “insult, offend or humiliate” would be replaced with “harass”.The latest multicultural statement acknowledges British and Irish settlers as part of the make-up of “multicultural Australia” and further includes ethnic minorities and indigenous people. Australia owes its accomplishments to the contributions of more than 300 different ancestries “from the first Australians to the newest arrivals”, it says specifically.Furthermore, the new statement emphasises learning English and makes a mention of terrorism.“Australia is the most successful multicultural society in the world. We are as old as our First Australians, the oldest continuing human culture on earth, who have cared for this country for more than 50,000 years. And we are as young as the baby in the arms of her migrant mother who could have come from any nation, any faith, any race in the world. Australia is an immigration nation. Almost half of our current population was either born overseas or has at least one parent born overseas. And we come from every culture, every race, every faith, every nation. We are defined not by race, religion, or culture, but by shared values of freedom, democracy, the rule of law, and equality of opportunity – a ‘fair go’. The glue that holds us together is mutual respect – a deep recognition that each of us is entitled to the same respect, the same dignity, the same opportunities. And national security – a resolute determination to defend our nation, our people, and our values – is the foundation on which our freedoms have been built and maintained. At a time of growing global tensions and rising uncertainty, Australia remains a steadfast example of a harmonious, egalitarian, and enterprising nation, embracing its diversity. Multicultural Australia: United, Strong, Successful renews and reaffirms the Government’s commitment to a multicultural Australia, in which racism and discrimination have no place. I commend Multicultural Australia: United, Strong, Successful to all Australians.”In his Easter Goodwill message, speaking to the Greek community, leader of the Opposition, the Hon Bill Shorten MP, expressed his disappointment stating that this change will make it easier for people to be insulted, abused, and humiliated on the basis of race.“Only this government could choose Harmony Day to weaken protections against racism,” he noted, saying that the Prime Minister is happy to water down racist hate speech laws because “he’ll never know what discrimination is like.”“It’s been six decades, and more, since the marvellous post-war generation of Greeks came in hard times to our country, with nothing in their hands but a few mementoes and the hands of those they loved. Australia has given you a chance – and you have repaid that faith a thousand times over,” Shorten added, praising migrant generations for broadening the nation’s horizons. “[You] opened our eyes as community heroes, role models, business leaders, educators, and entrepreneurs,” he said.At the same time, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Finance Robin Scott said that it is beyond ironic that Malcolm Turnbull is moving to water down race hate laws on Harmony Day.“We strongly condemn any changes which suggest it is okay to be racially insulting or offensive, or even humiliate someone because of their background. Just yesterday, Mr Turnbull promised to nurture Australia’s diversity with the launch of a new multicultural statement.”Scott said that the statement is rendered meaningless if the Prime Minister is simultaneously clearing a path for bigots and bigotry.“The Andrews Labor Government fully supports the Racial Discrimination Act – and will continue to do so. We will review Victoria’s Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001 to consider ways to strengthen legislative protections, should the Federal Coalition be successful with their amendments.”“I remain disappointed with Opposition Leader Matthew Guy’s silence on the issue,” Scott stressed.“When he was the Multicultural Affairs Minister, he said: ‘There should be no changes to the Federal Racial Discrimination Act’,” he recalled, calling on Matthew Guy to stand up for the values he was once proud to support.“The Victorian Government will stand with people of good will to defend our multicultural communities. Because we are Victorian. And proud of it,” Scott concluded.Meanwhile, the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) gave a cautious welcome to Malcolm Turnbull’s statement. Joe Caputo, Chairperson of FECCA said: “The Multicultural Statement is another step in our ongoing efforts to maintain and strengthen Australia’s inclusive, prosperous, and harmonious multicultural society.“The release of this statement is a great opportunity for our politicians to lead and unite all Australians in celebrating the tremendous economic, cultural, and educational benefits which have come from Australia’s longstanding commitment to immigration,” added Caputo. “We applaud the fact that, over decades, all Australian governments – whatever their political persuasion – have remained committed to a program of immigration and multiculturalism. FECCA urges the government to use this opportunity to show leadership in supporting Australia’s multiculturalism by announcing tangible policy initiatives including a Federal Multicultural Act and the development of a National Language Policy.”FECCA also welcomed the Prime Minister’s clear statement that racism and discrimination have no place in Australia as a reminder of the importance of legislation including section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act that provides protection from racially motivated attacks against Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities. Last but not least, the Greek Community of Victoria also objected to the proposed changes by the Federal Government to section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act in an official statement.“The changes appear to be legally unsound, morally wrong, and we trust that the Senate will not support this backward step,” President Bill Papastergiadis said.“We trust that the political mechanisms will seek to reflect the broader interests of Australia and not these sectarian obsessions.”last_img read more

Allianz Jinxed After MH370 and MH317 Company Confirms It is Lead Insurer

first_imgGerman multinational financial services firm Allianz SE is likely to take a hit of $100 million in insurance claims, being the lead re-insurer to the missing AirAsia flight that is reported to have crashed into the sea.    The company confirmed on Monday that AirAsia was its client but declined to identify other insurers of the AirAsia plane.”We can confirm that Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty UK (AGCS) is the lead reinsurer for AirAsia, for aviation hull and liability insurance,” an Allianz spokeswoman said in a statement emailed to Reuters.Allianz did not disclose how much the payout could cost but Reuters calculations show that it could be around $100 million. “It is much too early to comment on reports of this incident at this stage, except to say that our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this missing flight,” Allianz added in the statement.Allianz and the other insurers would not only have to pay for the plane but also have to pitch in for payments to the relatives of the passengers aboard the flight. According to Reuters, the cost for passengers’ liability could add up to $27 million.Jinxed Insurer?Malaysian Airlines is also a client of Allianz. The company had to handle the costs of MH370 – the plane that disappeared earlier this year, and MH17 – the airline that got shot down while flying over Ukraine.”After the jinxed Malaysian airline companies, we seem to have a jinxed insurer too!” said Jijo Jacob, editor at International Business Times UK. “This is going be identical to MH370 and MH17 in the sense there are standard minimum insurance obligations which all carriers have to have, but if negligence can be demonstrated the sky’s the limit in terms of claims,” John Ribbands, an independent Melbourne-based lawyer expert in aviation insurance was quoted by Reuters. The CrashThe AirAsia QZ8501 went missing on Sunday en-route to Singapore from Indonesia off the coast of Borneo. The flight was carrying 155 passengers and seven crew members on board. There were 138 adults, 16 children and an infant.The plane was flying at 32,000 feet when pilots suggested that it fly higher to avoid clouds. The route has been witnessing frequent storms, which is common at around this time of the year.last_img read more

Kanye West says hell bring Sunday Service to Coachella for Easter

first_img As Amazon burns, Vatican prepares for summit on region’s faith and sustainabilit … August 30, 2019 By: Heather Adams News • Photos of the Week New Jersey pastor files suit against Wells Fargo, state police after false arrest Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,LOS ANGELES (RNS) — Since the beginning of this year, Kanye West has been hosting a mysterious variety show of celebrity performances featuring both new and old music, complete with a gospel choir, that he calls “Sunday Service.”Last week the Chicago rapper and husband of Kim Kardashian West announced that on Easter Sunday, West will bring his take on worship to Coachella, the preeminent California music festival.What exactly the show will comprise is anyone’s guess. West’s Sunday Services have been highly exclusive events that require invitees to sign nondisclosure agreements. Most of what’s known about the shows comes from interviews with Kardashian West and Instagram posts by West’s extended family, including his 5-year-old daughter, North West.“It’s just music; there’s no sermon,” Kardashian West told Elle magazine recently. “It’s definitely something he believes in — Jesus — and there’s a Christian vibe. But there’s no preaching.”Kardashian West has also explained on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” that there’s also no prayer but that it is Christian, including the gospel choir and songs like West’s song, “Jesus Walks.”But she encouraged all faiths to participate. “Everyone that comes understands it’s just a really healing experience,” she told Elle.Kanye West attends a church with wife Kim Kardashian and family in Los Angeles on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015. Vantage News/IPxWest, who nicknamed himself “Yeezus,” addresses religion often. He has posed as Jesus for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and has tweeted that his favorite app is the Bible App, and his Twitter feed is littered liberally with Bible verses.Kardashian West has also been forthcoming about her religion, talking to Vogue in 2018 about the influence of her all-girls Los Angeles Catholic school (where, she said, she couldn’t wear makeup.)“We start our day with a group chat with a Bible verse from my mom,” she told Vogue about her current faith life. “Our work ethic and our discipline comes from so many years at Catholic school.”And in 2014, West and Kardashian were married by Miami Vous Church Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr., who has a reality show of his own.All this talk about religion has long had some wondering if West’s next move is to make a Christian album.According to the gossip website TMZ, a member of the R&B group 112, Slim, said he had been working with West on songs that could get more youth interested in church.If enlightening younger fans is his goal, West’s Easter service will be directed at a target-rich audience. Nielsen data shows that nearly half of music festival-goers fall in the 18-34 age range.The announcement comes months after West had pulled out of Coachella after the festival’s producer, Goldenvoice, refused to build a giant dome for his set.Some fans were thrilled West’s Coachella performance is being resurrected. “After 21 years of going to church on Easter Sunday, I can’t believe that Kanye will be giving me my service this year,” @andrea_clapp tweeted.@jcarrrt also shared her excitement on Twitter, saying, “I am ready to find God on Easter Sunday. Thanks, Kanye. Very cool!”The service is still highly exclusive. While Coachella attracts approximately 125,000 fans each weekend of the festival, according to Billboard, tickets still range from about $430 to $1,000.

President Solís to sit out annual Costa Rican religious pilgrimage to Cartago

first_imgRelated posts:La Negrita, please fix my peacock Catholic faithful begin annual pilgrimage to Costa Rica’s Basilica de Los Ángeles PHOTO REPORT – Faces of the faithful: A journey along Costa Rica’s romería PHOTOS: Thousands walk to Cartago to visit ‘La Negrita’ President Luis Guillermo Solís said that he would not participate in the annual pilgrimage to Cartago’s Basilica of the Angels, known as theromería, this weekend.Solís said that despite his Catholic faith and his family’s veneration of the Virgen de los Ángeles, Costa Rica’s patron saint, the trek to see “la negrita” is one tradition that he does not share.“I did not do the romería as a citizen before and I’m not going to go as president,” Solís said.The president said that he was not the first head of state to abstain from the pilgrimage and took issue with the notion that he was somehow breaking with tradition. Solís added that he said since he was a candidate that he did not want religious events that he attends to be politicized for “populist” reasons.“The subject of my faith as a believer is mine, with my Lord,” Solís said.The president said that he would attend the mass at the basilica on Saturday.Solís acknowledged that Costa Rica was a confessional state in comments made Tuesday, but his administration has shaken up some parts of the country’s church and state tradition. During his inauguration Solís did not have a prayer. Soon after taking office, the Citizen Action Party (PAC) president raised a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rainbow flag at the Casa Presidencial in Zapote, rankling conservative Christian lawmakers.The president’s party is at odds with the country’s conservative Catholic leaders, who oppose in vitro fertilization, expanding LGBT rights and the party’s support for a constitutional amendment to end Costa Rica’s status as a confessional state. Solís said that while PAC supports a constitutional amendment to make Costa Rica a secular state, lines of communication remained strong between the Church and Casa Presidencial. The president has attended several meetings with bishops, including one after a mass at the Basilica de los Ángeles with Bishop José Francisco Ulloa in May. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

The rest will be paid by Naman Group, “Yes.we could…we are still mulling” replied the AG The bench also comprising Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud then observed that the government did not appear certain about the effect of its proposed law “From your submission it appears that if you bring a legislation you also are not sure what impact it will have on the international arena” it told Rohatgi who concurred with the bench The AG submitted that if the State were to take over the BCCI it will have international ramifications and therefore the issue was tricky “ICC rules require the government not to interfere with certain crucial aspects of administration of the BCCI and it must remain that way At the end of the day such bodies must have some autonomy” he added The bench replied that nobody was destroying the BCCI’s autonomy and further rejected a proposition that the administrators will take over the BCCI “Who is taking over the BCCI Is there any order of that nature passed by us No By virtue of our orders certain people stand disqualified and we have now said that we will select a panel of administrators to manage day-to-day affairs of the BCCI till a new body is constituted after elections” it said The apex court called it a “mistaken impression” that it has ordered that the BCCI will be taken over by a panel of administrators to be appointed by it It told the AG that the court would examine all his submissions but only after appointing the administrators “We must move forward now…you also give us the names and we will consider them Just make sure these people are not disqualified by virtue of any of our orders” it said At this Rohatgi complained that the names submitted by amicus curiae and senior counsel Gopal Subramanium and Anil B Divan included even those who were above 70 years the age bar laid down by the court for office-bearers The bench then clarified that it has already rejected all such names and nobody above 70 would be considered for appointment as an administrator On a request made by senior counsel Kapil Sibal who was appearing for several state associations the bench permitted him to submit some names for administrators in a sealed envelope “We will take your suggestions and then we will appoint a committee of administrators first Then if the law permits we will examine all your arguments This case has to move in both ways — the committee of administrators has to be constituted and simultaneously we will hear your grievances If you succeed in convincing us that the two-judge bench order in this matter was contrary to the judgment in Zee Telefilms case we will apply our mind” it said In 2005 a Constitution Bench by a 3:2 majority had held in the Zee Telefilms case that although the BCCI performed public functions it could not be held to be a “State” within the meaning of Article 12 which defines government and its instrumentalities The Bench had noted that the Board was not created by statute the government held no share capital provided no financial assistance conferred no monopoly exercised no pervasive control and had not transferred a government-owned corporation Consequently Article 12 was not applicable During the hearing the court also accepted BCCI’s counsel Arvind Datar’s request to consider nominating a person to represent the board at the meeting of the executive committee of the ICC in the first week of February where major decisions affecting revenue was to be taken It asked Datar to suggest three names one of which would be nominated by the bench for the meeting The court will hear the case next on January 30 The hearing last week had resulted in granting a lifeline to scores of cricket administrators with the bench modifying its January 3 order and permitting an office-bearer to serve for a cumulative period of 18 years — nine years in BCCI and another nine in a state association The order on January 3 had held that a person shall be disqualified if he has been an office-bearer in BCCI or in state association for a total of nine years The modification by the new bench which heard the case for the first time last Friday had come after the BCCI complained that neither the main judgment of last year nor the recommendations by the court-appointed Lodha Committee had sought curtailing the tenure to a total of nine years The BCCI is currently without a
