The group would need the equivalent of one new factory per year in extra capacity in the coming years, he said.Michelin is already due to open three new factories in 2012.The company said it would achieve “significantly positive” free cash flow in 2010-2015 and would keep its dividend payout ratio at around 30 per cent over that period.Michelin set a subscription price of €45 per share for the capital increase and said investors were entitled to buy two new shares for every 11 they held.Citigroup has been taken on by Michelin to advise on the issue. last_img read more

first_img Show Comments ▼ LEGAL action will be taken to claw back billions of pounds of British savers’ cash from collapsed Icelandic banks, the chief secretary to the Treasury has signalled. Plans to pay back money lost in Icesave accounts were rejected for a second time by Icelanders in a referendum held over the weekend.Danny Alexander called the development “disappointing” and said the government would use the European courts to reimburse Britons who lost money. “It looks like this process will now end up in the courts,” he told BBC1’s Andrew Marr Show.He added: “We have a obligation to people in this country who had saved with those banks, we have an obligation now to get that money back, and we will continue to pursue that until we do.”About £3.5bn is owed to the UK and the Netherlands, who stepped in to compensate savers who lost money deposited in Icesave accounts. Icelandic lender Landsbanki ran the accounts, but collapsed in 2008 along with two more of the country’s banks. Sixty per cent of Icelanders voted against the latest repayment plan.

first_img Help by sharing this information News Organisation RSF_en October 16, 2015 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Directive on Trade Secrets – amend it or reject it! Proposed by the European Commission in 2013, the draft directive on Trade Secrets is currently the subject of “trilogue” discussions between the Commission, the Council and the Parliament, and is due to be adopted soon. The directive’s aim is to harmonize protection against industrial espionage and unfair competition throughout the EU. Its impact could be devastating for investigative journalism or could even eliminate it altogether. Journalists could be prosecuted for using or being in possession of information deemed to be a “trade secret” even when their intention was to satisfy the public’s right to be informed.The organizations signing this appeal urge the European institutions to address the following flaws in the proposed directive, with the aim of making an exception for journalists who use or who are in possession of a trade secret in connection with their journalistic work.- Do not settle for vague guaranteesThe Commission, Parliament and Council are currently discussing three different drafts of the proposed directive. With the aim of protecting freedom of expression and information, the Parliament has introduced some general safeguards that are missing from the other drafts. The Parliament’s version says: “Member States shall respect freedom of the press and the media (…) in order to ensure that the Directive does not restrict journalistic works, in particular with regard to investigation, protection of sources, and the right of the public to be informed.” It also says that the directive “shall not affect the freedom and pluralism of the media as enshrined in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.”These additions, on which there is not even a consensus among the three EU institutions, are insufficient. None of the drafts includes specific provisions capable of ensuring that journalists are fully able to use their freedom of expression and information and safeguarding the public’s right to be informed. Only an explicit exception for journalists in connection with their work is capable of guaranteeing the public’s right to be informed.- Include an exception for the exercise of journalismIn all three drafts, the acquisition, use or disclosure of a trade secret is prohibited unless for the purpose of “a legitimate use of the right to freedom of expression and information.” The concept of “legitimate use” of a fundamental right is disturbing. In principle, the use of a freedom is legitimate except in case of strictly defined exceptions. This wording creates a legal uncertainty for journalists. In the event of non-compliance, the proposed directive envisages “damages appropriate to the actual prejudice suffered”, which could potentially be astronomic. As result, this uncertainty would have a chilling effect on journalists. It would deter them from using these freedoms and would lead to self-censorship. We therefore request that the directive should make an exception for “the use by journalists of the right to freedom of expression and information in connection with their journalistic activity.”- Allow acquisition by journalists for information purposesThe proposed directive would not only prohibit the use and disclosure of a “trade secret” but also its mere “acquisition.” Even unauthorized access and copying of a trade secret would be unlawful, regardless of how it is used or whether it is disclosed. This constitutes a grave threat to the work of journalists, which consists precisely in accessing information in the interest of the public’s right to know, without necessarily asking for the trade secret holder’s consent.To safeguard the ability of journalists to research and investigate, the mere acquisition of a trade secret should not be prohibited as long as it is acquired as part of a journalistic activity and in the absence of proof to the contrary. A proposed European Union directive on Trade Secrets that is currently being discussed by the EU’s institutions poses a grave danger to investigative journalism. Five organizations – Reporters Without Borders (RSF), the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), the European Newspaper Publishers Association (ENPA), the European Magazine Media Association (EMMA) and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) – call on the EU institutions to amend the proposed directive so that it does not deal a fatal blow to investigative coverage of the business and corporate world. If proper safeguards for investigative journalism are not incorporated into the proposed directive, it should be rejected outright. last_img read more

The order was assailed by the father of the detenu Ab. Rashid Mir who pleaded that the grounds of detention mentioned in the detention order had no nexus to the detenu and that there had been no application of mind by the Detaining Authority in detaining him. He referred the Court to the twin activities mentioned in the detention order namely “Maintenance of Public Order” and “the Security of the State” as proof of non-application of mind by the Authorities. He also claimed that the Detaining Authority had not prepared the grounds of detention itself which is a pre-requisite for passing any order of detention but had only relied on the police dossier. He also informed the Court that the Detaining Authority had not furnished copies of the relevant material (that had been relied on to pass the order) to the detenu and that the same had prevented the detenu from making an effective representation. The order of detention of the detenu dated 08 August 2019 stated that “I am satisfied that with a view to prevent Shri Fayaz Ahmad Mir @ Chota Geelani S/o Ab. Rashid Mir R/o Pahoo Tehsil Kakapora district Pulwama form acting in a a menner, prejudicial to the Security of the State, it is necessary to detain the said person under the provisions of J&K Public Safety Act” In its last paragraph, the order also stated that “Therefore, in order to prevent you from indulging in the activities, which hare detrimental to the maintenance of public order, it is necessary to detain you by invoking the provisions of J&K Public safety Act, 1978” The Bench comprising of Justice Sindhu Sharma on perusal of the above order concluded that reliance of both the expressions ‘Security of the State’ and ‘Maintenance of Public Order’ which are distinct concepts reflect the total non-application of mind by the Detaining Authority. The Court relied on its ruling in G. M. Shah v. State of Jammu and Kashmir of 1980 which had considered a similar issue reiterating the following excerpt from the judgment “the Act defines the expressions “acting in any manner prejudicial to the security of the State” and “acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order” separately. An order of detention made either on the basis that the detaining authority is satisfied that the person against whom the order is being made is acting in any manner prejudicial to the security of the State or on the basis that he is satisfied that such person is acting in any manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order but which is attempted to be supported by placing reliance on both the bases in the grounds furnished to the detenu has to be held to be an illegal one vide decisions of this Court in Bhupal Chandra Ghosh v. Arif Ali & Ors. and Satya Brata Ghose v. Arif Ali & Ors. Furthermore, the Court stated that the facts and circumstances of the case reveal that the allegation that relevant material had not been furnished to the detenu is also true. It stated that the detenu was given a mere copy of the order of detention and grounds of detention without being provided the dossier, FIR and other relevant material. The Court stated that such a lapse by the Detaining Authority has prevented the detenu from making an effective representation as mandated under Article 22(5) of the Constitution of India as well as under Section 13 of the J&K Public Safety Act and the impugned order being vitiated on this account cannot be sustained. It therefore quashed the detention order and directed the respondents to release the detenu from its custody, provided that he is not required in any other case.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgObtained by ABC NewsBY: IVAN PEREIRA, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Indiana prosecutors on Friday charged two white men who were filmed allegedly assaulting a Black man on July 4.Sean Purdy and Jerry Cox are facing battery, confinement and intimidation charges for their alleged roles in an attack on Vauhxx Rush Booker at Lake Monroe, according to the Monroe County Prosecutor’s office.Booker, 36, an activist and member of the Monroe County Human Rights Commission, and other witnesses filmed the encounter in which Purdy, Cox and other men were seen pinning Booker to a tree and pulling his arm. Booker said he heard the men say they were going to get a noose and that they shouted racial slurs.Local police and the FBI are investigating. A representative for the Monroe County prosecutor’s office said the suspects had not been arrested as of early Friday afternoon.“This is not a happy moment. It’s a necessary moment,” Booker said in a Zoom news conference Friday afternoon. “We have a legal system and what I want now is our neighbors to decide the fate of these individuals.”An attorney representing Purdy couldn’t immediately be reached for comment. It’s unclear whether Cox has an attorney at this time.Booker revealed on Friday that he tested positive for COVID-19 that morning and is currently under home quarantine. He said he took the test on Wednesday after his doctor advised him to do. Booker’s attorney, Katherine Liell, said she reached out to Purdy’s attorney to inform him of her client’s positive test.Booker said a group of white men confronted him as he was walking with a friend to a Fourth of July event at the lake, blocking his path to the beach.Booker said in a Facebook post that he and a friend “decided to just walk back and attempt to simply have a conversation” with the group, but that group members “quickly became aggressive,” and when Booker and his friend walked away “two of them jumped me from behind.”Booker has called the assault an attempted lynching and said some of his hair was pulled out.A group of bystanders came to Booker’s aid and filmed some of the incident while pleading with the group to release him. The group of white men are seen cursing at the bystanders. Booker and the bystanders called the police and showed them the videos, but no one was immediately taken into custody.Booker posted his video and recounted the incident on Facebook. Over the last two weeks, investigators have questioned several witnesses and collected more video, according to police reports.Purdy’s attorney, David Hennessy, contended at a news conference earlier this week that Booker started the incident and threw punches at his client. Hennessy contended Booker “race baited” his client.Liell said her client attempted to fight back after the group started the fight.Booker told reporters he’s determined to seek justice and begin the healing process.“We’ve seen a lot of mudslinging and name-calling,” he said, “and I would like for us to take a moment to think about our shared humanity.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
