Portugal is third EU domino to fall

first_img PORTUGAL caved in to the unbearable strain on its finances last night as finance minister Fernando Teixeira dos Santos (pictured) admitted that it has asked the EU for a rescue.With the government €10bn (£8.8bn) short of the cash needed to see it through to the end of elections in June, interim Prime Minister Jose Socrates said that he had bowed to the “inevitable” in seeking a bailout. “I tried everything, but in conscience we have reached a moment when not taking this decision would imply risks that the country should not take,” he told the nation.A sale of €1bn (£878m) of Lisbon’s debt yesterday morning saw yields reach an eye-watering 5.1 per cent for six-month bonds, a price that Portugal’s government admitted was unsustainable.The rescue is likely to cost between €70bn and €90bn – similar to Ireland’s €85bn bailout – with the UK liable for 13 per cent of the costs.The European Commission confirmed that it had been approached by Portugal “to ask for the activation of the financial support mechanisms”. The IMF said it had not yet been approached but was ready to help.However, Socrates is only interim Prime Minister since his resignation after failing to get an austerity budget through parliament last month, and lacks the legal power to negotiate a bailout.“The EU has seen what happened in Ireland with the popular legitimacy of the package when the government that negotiated it didn’t implement it,” says Kevin Dunning of the Economist Intelligence Unit.Instead, Lisbon could ask for a bridge loan of €10-€15bn, leaving a new government to negotiate a formal rescue in June. Such a move will prove extremely unpopular in Germany, the Eurozone’s paymaster, where it would be seen as an unconditional gift rather than a bailout with strict terms.Eyes will now turn to Spain, which has so far managed to “decouple” from other peripheral euro states. But many are sceptical. Newedge’s Bill Blain said: “I just can’t accept Spain is not a problem waiting to happen. Banks and property, banks and property just won’t stop ringing in my ears.” whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULL Wednesday 6 April 2011 8:45 pm Share KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldUndoBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeUndoElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldUndo Portugal is third EU domino to fall last_img read more

Operation Condor’s lasting impact on Latin America’s media

first_img Americas WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists June 7, 2021 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Americas Op-ed published on 11 September on Bío Bío Nacional’s websiteForty years after the Chilean military coup of 11 September 1973, Latin America’s conscience is still haunted by memories of the dust clouds from the attack on La Moneda, the presidential palace. Salvador Allende’s death and the rubble left by the bombardment endure as symbols of democracies crushed by the claws of Operation Condor, just as certain open wounds still endure. In the absence of justice, the time has come for repentance, albeit belatedly. But not, with few exceptions, in the ranks of the media.The Brazilian media giant Globo took the plunge on 31 August by publicly acknowledging in its daily newspaper that its support for President João Goulart’s removal in a military coup on 31 March 1964 was a “mistake.” “It was the Cold War and we thought we were saving democracy,” the newspaper said. But Argentina’s Clarín and Chile’s El Mercurio have yet to offer a mea culpa, although they also backed their countries’ armed forces when they seized power by force. The golden rule for them is business as usual, it seems.Globo’s act of contrition has not diminished its share of the Brazilian market. In Chile, El Mercurio and the Copesa media group continue to be the sole beneficiaries of the government’s support for the media, worth 5 million dollars a year. And Clarín continues to dominate Argentina’s airwaves, refusing to surrender any of its frequencies as required by the new Broadcasting Services Law – also known as the SCA or Media Law – whose full application is still on hold pending a supreme court decision.The media regulation introduced by the various currents of the South American left in the 2000s (in Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador and Uruguay) is understandable in the light of the heritage of the Operation Condor years. Censorship and terror have ended but it cannot be said that media pluralism prevails, not real pluralism. The concentration of media ownership that was consolidated under the dictatorships has continued unchallenged since the return to democracy.This was one of the issues raised by the Chilean students who took to the streets in large numbers in 2011, and by the many participants in last June’s “Brazilian Spring” protests. And sometimes history pauses in its advance, as it did in Venezuela in 2002, Honduras in 2009 and Paraguay in 2012, when leading privately-owned media were accomplices to coups or coup attempts that should have been a thing of the past.The promotion of new media legislation has logically often met with opposition from the affected media. It is true that some governments have encouraged polarization that has hindered public debate. It is also true that some legislation, as in Ecuador, has tended to impose undesirable controls on the media and media content, as well as a fairer distribution of broadcast frequencies.But a redefinition of broadcasting, one that takes account of the region’s burgeoning alternative media and community radio stations, is badly needed. With the backing of the UN and OAS special rapporteurs, Argentina and Uruguay are dismantling the old, obsolete regulatory systems that were a hangover from the dictatorships. But the old status quo still prevails in Brazil and Chile.It is an irony of history that the supporters of Pinochet’s coup who wanted to “avoid another Cuba” must now acknowledge the truth of a comment by a Chilean journalist who spent many years in exile: “Chile is just like Cuba, no opposition newspapers are to be seen on the newsstands.” So, for goodness’ sake, dear media shareholders, do not invoke “media freedom” in defence of your dividends.Christophe Deloire, Reporters Without Borders secretary-generalBenoît Hervieu, Reporters Without Borders Americas Desk Americas June 3, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts September 12, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Operation Condor’s lasting impact on Latin America’s mediacenter_img May 13, 2021 Find out more News News News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies RSF_en Reports Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says to go furtherlast_img read more

UN Human Rights chief opposes exclusion of Reporters Without Borders

first_img May 30, 2003 – Updated on January 25, 2016 UN Human Rights chief opposes exclusion of Reporters Without Borders UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Sergio Vieira de Mello told a press conference in Geneva on 30 May that he opposed the call by the UN’s Committee on Non-Governmental Organisations for the consultative status of Reporters Without Borders to be suspended for a year.He said: “I told our friend [Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert] Ménard that I had strong reservations about how his people behaved at the opening session of the Human Rights Commission, but I personally, as High Commissioner, oppose any attempt to exclude the organisation by removing its current status of observer. As you know, these decisions are not taken by us or by the UN secretary-general, but by a committee in New York that deals with such matters. I am against this sanction being taken against Reporters Without Borders.”I strongly favour freedom of expression, one of the most basic human rights, and the right of NGOs to express themselves freely, as they did throughout the meeting of the Commission. Nobody has noticed that it is the only UN forum where all NGOs can say what they like and this should at least be recognised by the Commission. Reporters Without Borders has the right to say and write what it thinks but it must however respect certain rules, which it did not do at the opening session of the Commission and I regret that.”————————————————————————————————————–Reporters Without Borders threatened with year-long banIt asked how such a decision could be taken seriously when every one of the countries that voted for the suspension – China, Côte d’Ivoire, Cuba, Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Sudan, Turkey and Zimbabwe – all abuse the most basic human rights. Cuba, which proposed the suspension, is on the UN Human Rights Commission but has not ratified the main international human rights agreements. All this would be laughable, the organisation said, if it did not show up the decay of the UN system, which has some of the world’s worst human rights violators giving lessons to those who denounce their actions and defend their victims. The NGO Committee recommended on 20 May that Reporters Without Borders be suspended for a year. To take effect, the move must be endorsed by the UN General Assembly’s Economic and Social Council, which will consider the proposal in July. The call was made after Cuba complained that Reporters Without Borders had physically disrupted the opening of the 59th session of the Human Rights Commission in Geneva on 17 March, behaved in an insulting manner towards a member state and had acted in a way incompatible with the principles and aims of the UN Charter. Nine of the Committee’s 19 members-states voted for suspension, while six (Germany, Chile, the United States, France, Peru and Romania) voted against and four abstained (Cameroon, Colombia, India and Senegal).France had proposed taking no action so as to avoid what it called any hasty move and said it was essential, in the name of basic rights, principles and procedures, for the Committee to hear from Reporters Without Borders before suspending it. Since it was set up in 1966, the Committee has never suspended any member or observer without hearing its representatives. Several member-countries called the decision an ominous precedent.Six Reporters Without Borders activists threw leaflets into the meeting room in Geneva on 17 March when the Commission’s new Libyan president, Najat Al-Hajjaji, made her inaugural speech. “At last the UN has appointed someone who knows what she’s talking about!” the leaflet said sarcastically. The press freedom organisation was denouncing the mockery of a country such as Libya being in the chair and asking what credibility the Commission could have when led by a country that committed the worst human rights abuses on a daily basis. Help by sharing this information RSF_en Sergio Vieira de Mello, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, has said he opposes any attempt to exclude Reporters Without Borders from the United Nations by challenging its current observer status.

The bank has said it hopes redundancies will be voluntary and assured customers that supports will be put in place to assist affected customers. Nearly two-thirds of the bank’s transactions are now online.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Ulster Bank chief executive Gerry Mallon says the closures were a response to changing customer demand.“The role of the branch continues to move away from day-to-day transactions, with only 10 per cent of our customer interaction now happening in the branch,” he explained.“Closing a branch is a difficult decision which we do not take lightly, and our branch network remains an important part of how we serve our customers.”Limerick Sinn Féin TD and Spokesperson on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Maurice Quinlivan has called out Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor, on her silence about mounting job losses announced all over the country in the past number of weeks.“Ulster Bank’s announcement of 220 job losses and its closure of 22 branches, two of which are located in Limerick, is terrible news for staff, and residents who depend on these branches in their local areas. Ulster Bank made a profit of €280 million in Ireland last year. Against this backdrop, it is hard to comprehend the closure of so many branches, and the loss of over 200 staff,” said Deputy Quinlivan.“These job losses are going to have an immediate negative impact on workers and their families, but also on the local economy and availability of services. I know personally that many people depend on the branches in Castletroy and Newcastle West for their banking needs, and this closure will mean Ulster Bank will no longer have a presence in Limerick outside the city,” he concluded.by Alan [email protected] Twitter TAGSlimerickUlster Bank Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more

Ohio Senator Urges Regulators to Act Against ‘Zombie Debts’

Brown’s letter urges the regulators to strengthen oversight of debt sale arrangements, which includes information that financial institutions send to debt buyers and consumers and how that information is verified for accuracy. Brown also asked for regulators to consider whether or not financial institutions are prohibited from selling zombie debt to debt collectors.”Everyone should have an accurate credit score and no one should be haunted by debts they don’t owe,” said Brown, Ranking Member of the Senate Banking Committee. “But too many Americans are haunted by zombie debts – debts they’ve already paid but still appear on their credit reports. Credit scores are often used for non-credit purposes, like job decisions and rental housing, compounding the problem. That’s why I’m urging federal regulators to do their part to ensure accurate and timely reporting of consumer debt information. These agencies can and must do more to ensure that buyers and sellers of debt aren’t engaging in behavior that exploits consumers.”Reports have shown that one in five Americans have an error on their credit report that would affect their ability to obtain credit, and debt collection and credit reporting are two of the categories for which the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) receives the most complaints.Brown introduced the Consumer Reporting Fairness Act in mid-July in response to the number of Ohioans affected by JPMorgan Chase agreed earlier in the month to pay $136 million to settle claims that the bank sold inaccurate credit card debt to debt collectors. The new law would not only require creditors to make sure a discharged debt is removed from a consumer’s credit report in an accurate and timely manner, but it would allow the consumer to take legal action against creditors who fail to do so.At the time Brown introduced the bill, he said, “During the financial crisis, more than 50 million people saw their credit scores fall due to foreclosures and financial hardships. Many turned to bankruptcy, but are still haunted by debt on their credit report that they no longer owe. This bill would ensure that debts prior to bankruptcy aren’t in effect double counted and don’t continue to make it difficult for consumers to get a job or secure a loan for a home.”To view a copy of Brown’s letter, click here.center_img Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
