Hiraks Nasser Zefzafi Boycotts His Appeal Hearings

Rabat – The jailed Hirak Rif leader Nasser Zefzafi abstained from attending an appeal hearing on Monday at the Casablanca Court of Appeals, due to what he calls the “absence of fair trial conditions.”Zefzafi’s father, Ahmed Zefzafi, shared his son’s statement on Facebook yesterday, announcing that his boycott is irrevocable.As quoted by his father, Zefzafi said that the trial “is but a stage play by the judicial institution … Therefore, I declare to the local, national and international public that I am boycotting this trial, in which the most basic conditions of fairness do not exist.” The appeal hearing of Hirak detainees was initially scheduled for January 7 but the court postponed it to Monday, January 14. The court did not report the reasons for the delay.Eight days after being sentenced to 20 years in June 2018, Zefzafi refused to appeal his sentences.Read Also: Morocco’s Nasser Zefzafi, Hirak Leader, Not Awarded Sakharov PrizeAlong with other detained Hirak activists, Zefzafi started a series of hunger strikes to protest alleged torture and harassment, and ask, according to his father, “for the rights that other prisoners enjoy: that he be taken out of isolation in a solitary cell and put him in a dignified cell where he can see and talk.”Eventually, Zefzafi decided to appeal in July.The court handed down sentences varying from 1 to 20 years to 54 Hirak activists for participating in the “unauthorized” Hirak protests.The Hirak movement began in October 2016 after the death of Mohcine Fikri, an Al Hoceima fishmonger who was crushed to death in a garbage truck while trying to save his goods that had been confiscated by authorities.The incident angered many, causing protests across the country, especially in Al Hoceima province, which condemned Fikri’s death and social disparities in Morocco.Police arrested an estimated 400 activists and protesters involved in the protests in 2016 and 2017.Read Also: Morocco Rejects Amnesty’s Report on Hirak Activists’ Sentences read more

UN seeks 64 million for humanitarian aid to Liberia

“Despite some improvements in political, security and the socio-economic conditions of Liberians, humanitarian needs do still remain,” said UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Liberia Jordan Ryan. The appeal covers water and sanitation, health and agriculture. Donors have already provided some $46 million to the 2007 Common Humanitarian Action Plan, which was launched in February of this year. The humanitarian community determined that a total of $110 million will be required to help meet the basic social services of the Liberian people, who have suffered from years of civil strife. In another development, nearly 300 young boys and girls in Charlesville – some 100 kilometres northwest of Monrovia – are benefiting from improvements to their school made by Pakistani troops serving with the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL). The blue helmets provided fresh paint and a new roof, and fully furnished the classrooms. At a ceremony marking the hand-over of the school to the local authorities, Mr. Ryan expressed appreciation to the contingent for their contribution to the children’s and Liberia’s development, stressing that “education is vital for the future of Liberia.” He emphasized the crucial importance of giving equal educational opportunities to both girls and boys, and urged parents to make good use of the newly renovated facility so that their children grow up in a safe, clean and healthy environment. By “adopting” the school, the Pakistani contingent has committed itself not only to the rehabilitation and maintenance of the school’s premises, but also to additional support, including providing regular medical services for the children and distributing stationary and uniforms, UNMIL said. Meanwhile, the top United Nations envoy in Liberia today paid tribute to three crew members who died when a UN helicopter crashed last week. A probe on the cause is continuing but the mission has said there is no evidence to indicate that any foul play was involved. Pilot in Command Vitali Drozdov, Co-Pilot Sergey Kolosov and Flight Engineer Nikolai Zhorikov, all Russian nationals, lost their lives when the MI-8 cargo helicopter crashed on last Friday near Ganta in north-eastern Liberia. “We all feel touched by this tragedy because we fly with you day in day out,” UNMIL chief Alan Doss, told senior staff of UTAir at a meeting at the Mission’s headquarters in Monrovia, conveying condolences and offering the UN’s assistance in the arrangements being made for the repatriation of the three bodies to the Russian Federation. Extensive investigations into the crash are continuing under the leadership of the Liberian Civil Aviation Authority (LCAA) with the full support and cooperation of UNMIL’s Aviation Safety Unit. In addition, international aviation experts from the UN and the Russian Federation, including the Senior Management team of UTAir plus representatives of the Russian Civil Aviation Authority, are expected in Liberia tomorrow to assist with the investigations. 6 November 2007The United Nations and its partners in Liberia today appealed for $64 million to meet urgent humanitarian needs in the country for the remainder of this year and the first half of 2008. read more

DR of Congo Annan pledges UN support in wake of volcano eruption

“The Secretary-General has learned with deep concern of the eruption of Mount Nyiragongo, near Goma, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo,” his spokesman, Fred Eckhard, told reporters in New York. “He notes that this severe natural disaster is occurring in an area that has already suffered from years of conflict.” Mr. Annan assured the Governments of the DRC and Rwanda, which also experienced lava flows, that he would put the UN’s assets to “full use” in helping them to mitigate the disaster’s consequences, the spokesman said. As part of that effort, the Secretary-General dispatched Ross Mountain, the Assistant Emergency Relief Coordinator to oversee the UN response. In addition, a flight from the UN Mission in the DRC (MONUC) will leave Kinshasa for Kigali, carrying 28 metric tonnes of emergency supplies to meet the immediate needs of some 300,000 people who have been displaced by the disaster. Briefing reporters in New York, Steven Johnson, acting chief of the Humanitarian Emergency Branch of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said 3 or 4 lava flows from the volcano had caused some 100,000 people to flee into villages in the DRC, while some 200,000-300,000 had fled just over the border into Rwanda. “Goma town has been split completely in half, and one half totally destroyed – burned,” he said. read more

UNsupported initiative helps vaccinate 105 million children against hepatitis

According to the progress report of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), there is clear evidence that a public-private alliance, along with significant financial backing from the Alliance’s financing branch, known as the Vaccine Fund, can create a new interest in vaccines for the poorest countries. Partners in the Alliance include public institutions such as the UN World Health Organization (WHO), UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Bank; bilateral aid and non-governmental agencies; the vaccine industry; new partners such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and developing country governments. “Our times require new solutions, including new partnerships – with private industry, developing country governments, and new ways of financing. The Alliance has helped us to deliver more and faster than if any of the partners had gone it alone,” said Dr. Tore Godal, Executive Secretary of GAVI. The report, released today in Dakar, Senegal, at a gathering of global health leaders from more than 60 countries, including more than 30 health and finance ministers, says that since the program started, 130 million vaccine doses have been delivered to countries. Meanwhile, preliminary estimates by WHO say those vaccines have already saved more than 100,000 lives. The report notes, however, that war, political turmoil, failing economies and natural disaster have impeded the transfer of GAVI/Vaccine Fund assets to local governments in some countries, while in others, the introduction of a complex new vaccine has over-stressed fragile health systems. read more

Physics Registrars Office create their own student awards

When it comes to examples of departments that dig deep for student awards, you need look no further than Physics and the Registrar’s Office.Edward SterninFaculty in the Physics department have created a graduate award – the Chancellor Chair’s Graduate Scholarship in Physics. And staff in the Registrar’s Office have created the Office of the Registrar Award for undergraduates. Both are examples of the work of the annual Family Campaign.“Our financial contributions were made as a vote of confidence and a celebration of the opportunities presented by our new PhD program in Physics,” said Edward Sternin, Physics department chair. “The Department of Physics is proud of our graduate students’ success and we support their commitment to our discipline and to research excellence.”The Family Campaign is designed to support students who will become future leaders. From Sept. 12 to Oct. 7, faculty and staff will be asked to contribute to a fundraising effort that raises money for undergraduate and graduate student awards, student support initiatives such as Mentorship Plus, and projects such as the Cairns Family Health and Bioscience Research Complex and the downtown Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts.Campaign co-chair Marilyn Cottrell, an Economics lecturer, said the students are what motivated her to get involved.“As a lecturer, Brock University students have been my inspiration through their cultural and geographic diversity,” she said. “My concern is that some of them require financial and emotional assistance. Housing, food, books, entertainment – all part of a university student’s life – are a challenge for some students. Through financial support, we encourage the struggling student who has a feeling of fear and isolation.”Related stories:• Volunteers needed for Family Campaign | The Brock News read more

Eva copper feasibility study demonstrates the quality and size of the asset

first_imgCopper Mountain Mining Corp has reported positive results from its feasibility study on its 100% owned Eva copper project in Queensland, Australia. Highlights from the study are summarised in the table.  All costs and values use bank consensus metal prices with long-term metal prices of $3.08/lb of copper and $1,310/oz of gold. The Australian Dollar to U.S. Dollar exchange rates used for years 1 to 3 are 1.40:1 (spot), 1.38:1 and 1.36:1, followed by 1.35:1 long term.  All dollars are in US dollars unless otherwise indicated. Plant capacity Average copper feed grade (full years 1-9) Annual copper production (full years 1-9) 28% Total copper production (klbs) Annual copper equivalent (CuEq) production first two full years(1) $350M 117,041 Total ore processed (kt) Average copper recovery 117,041 Waste to ore strip ratio “The results of the Eva feasibility study clearly demonstrate the quality and size of this asset,” commented Gil Clausen, Copper Mountain’s President and CEO. “Eva has the potential to add significant cashflow to our operating base, at one of the lowest capital intensities for near-term greenfield projects anywhere, in the best mining jurisdiction in the world.”Clausen added, “Our intention is to finance the capital spend in a non-dilutive manner through restructuring our current debt and internal cash flow.  We are currently in advanced discussions on debt options and are evaluating the best alternative for shareholders. Until we have a definitive full funding solution in place, which we expect in the coming months, we will not commence construction nor incur large project costs. Our objective is to provide low risk, high value development options to our shareholders and we will be conservative in financing our growth plans.  The organic growth pipeline at Copper Mountain is impressive, and we believe it will be largely financed internally.“In addition, this study assumes no benefit from resources in the oxide cap which are treated as waste material. The company believes that the oxide copper at Eva may be recoverable economically based on preliminary leaching test work.  A metallurgical test work program is currently underway and we expect to complete our evaluation in early 2019.”The Eva project is designed as a moderate sized truck/shovel copper-gold open pit mining operation.  The pit designs for the five deposits that comprise the Eva copper project, Little Eva, Turkey Creek, Bedford, Lady Clayre and Ivy Ann, were based on a Lerchs-Grossmann optimization at $2.75/lb copper price, generated using Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources only.  Mining costs are based on a first-principles model based on locally-sourced costs for major inputs.  Little Eva is comprised of six pushback phases while Turkey Creek and Bedford are each based on two phases.  Lady Clayre and Ivy Ann are each single-phase pit developments.  Pit designs followed geotechnical constraints, with haul road design widths sufficient for the proposed haulage equipment.  The Little Eva pit is mined during the project’s nine-year active mining plan, with Turkey Creek and the smaller satellite pits mining being distributed into the schedule concurrently.  The Little Eva and Turkey Creek pits represent approximately 91% of the project’s Mineral Reserves.   Mid- and low- grade stockpiles are processed during the last three years of the mine life.The mine plan includes production of 334 Mt of ore and waste from five deposits over a minimum mine life of 12 years. Total ore mined is expected to be 117 Mt and total waste is expected to be 217 Mt, for a waste to ore strip ratio of 1.86 to 1.  With an overall sulphide copper recovery of 93% and gold recovery of 78%, the project’s average annual production is expected to be about 90 Mlb of copper and 19,000 oz of gold, which is equal to 98 Mlb copper equivalent, based on base case metal prices and estimated recoveries. Total copper produced is estimated to be 959 Mlb. Ore will be mined using conventional earth-moving equipment and will be transported to a processing plant via haulage roads.The process plan calls for an average throughput of 28,000 t/d) for the first five years and 25,500 t/d for the remaining life of mine based on the hardness variability incorporated into the geo-metallurgical model of the deposit. The processing plant and tailings management facility will be constructed on site. The flowsheet consists of primary crushing, primary and secondary grinding using a SAG-ball mill circuit (as the schematic), followed by flotation to recover copper and gold in concentrate form. Flotation concentrate will be thickened, filtered and stockpiled for shipping to the Mt Isa smelter. Full transportation, smelting and refining costs were based on the company’s existing long-term contract with Glencore’s Mt. Isa Smelter, which is located approximately 195 km west of Eva.The project is near existing infrastructure with power available through a 220 kV powerline. Water for the operations will be supplied through a well field located near the processing facility, pit dewatering and from water reclaimed from the tailings storage facility located on company property. The well field has been drilled, pump tested and verified by independent hydrologists as sufficient for the project’s water consumption needs.A summary of mining and production parameters is provided below. $1.74 98M lbs 0.45% 217,161 12 years Total gold production (oz) Initial capital cost 129M lbs After-tax Net Present Value (NPV) (8%) $256M Average gold feed grade (full years 1-9)center_img 1.86:1 Annual copper production (full years 1-9) (klbs) 93% Total ore mined (kt) Annual copper equivalent (CuEq) production (1) (full years 1-9) C1 cash cost (per lb of copper produced)(1,2) Annual copper production first two years 959,263 12 years 203,000 28,000 tpd 90M lbs 18,800 After-tax Internal Rate of Return (IRR) Annual gold production (full years 1-9) (oz) Average gold recovery Mine life Total waste (including 14,074 kt of oxide material) (kt) 90,400 Mine life 0.08 g/t 78% 121M lbslast_img read more

Portugal bus crash kills 29 German tourists

first_imgA video grab obtained from drone footage shows the wreckage of a tourist bus that crashed on 17 April 2019 in Canico, on the Portuguese island of Madeira. At least 28 people were killed when a tourist bus crashed on the Portuguese island of Madeira, the local mayor told local media. The regional protection service did not confirm the toll when questioned by AFP. Photo: AFPTwenty-nine German tourists were killed when their bus spun off the road and tumbled down a slope before crashing into a house on the Portuguese island of Madeira.Drone footage of the aftermath of the accident showed the badly mangled wreckage of the bus resting precariously on its side against a building on a hillside, the vehicle’s roof partially crushed and front window smashed.Rescue workers attended to injured passengers among the undergrowth where the bus came to rest, some of them bearing bloodied head bandages and bloodstained clothes, others appearing to be more seriously hurt.Local authorities said most of the dead were in their 40s and 50s.They were among the more than one million tourists who visit the Atlantic islands off the coast of Morocco each year, attracted by its subtropical climate and rugged volcanic terrain.”Horrible news comes to us from Madeira,” a German government spokesman tweeted after the crash.”Our deep sorrow goes to all those who lost their lives in the bus accident, our thoughts are with the injured,” he added.German holidaymakers were the second largest group after British tourists to visit the islands — known as the Pearl of the Atlantic and the Floating Garden in the Atlantic — in 2017, according to Madeira’s tourism office.The islands are home to just 270,000 inhabitants.Filipe Sousa, mayor of Santa Cruz where the accident happened, said 17 women and 11 men were killed in the crash, with another 21 injured.A doctor told reporters another woman died of her injuries in hospital.”I express the sorrow and solidarity of all the Portuguese people in this tragic moment, and especially for the families of the victims who I have been told were all German,” president Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa told Portuguese television.He said he would travel to Madeira overnight.’Profound sadness’ Portuguese prime minister Antonio Costa added on Twitter that he had contacted German chancellor Angela Merkel to convey his condolences”It is with profound sadness that I heard of the accident on Madeira,” he wrote on the government’s Twitter page.”I took the occasion to convey my sadness to Chancellor Angela Merkel at this difficult time,” he added.The regional protection service in Madeira confirmed 28 deaths in the accident that happened at 6:30 pm (1730 GMT) Wednesday, while hospital authorities said another woman later died of her injuries.The bus had been carrying around 50 passengers.Regional government vice president Pedro Calado said it was “premature” to speculate on the cause of the crash, adding that the vehicle was five years old and that “everything had apparently been going well”.Judicial authorities had opened an investigation into the circumstances of the accident, the Madeira public prosecutor’s office told the Lusa news agency.Medical teams were being sent from Lisbon to help local staff carry out post-mortems on the dead.last_img read more

Govt police agree upon putting end to commission system in buses

first_imgKolkata: In a bid to check bus accidents, the state government and the police have proposed to do away with the commission system in bus services.The matter was discussed in a meeting held on Tuesday. State Transport minister Suvendu Adhikari, Additional Chief Secretary Alapan Bandyopadhyay, other concerned officials of the Transport department and senior police officers held the meeting, with representatives of bus owners’ associations.Sources said that the Transport department and the police have proposed to put an end to the commission system. Under the existing system, drivers and conductors get a commission from the fare collected from passengers. As a result, buses of same routes race among themselves to get more passengers, which leads to accidents. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsIt may be mentioned that doing away with the commission system is an old issue and it crops up whenever there is any major bus accident. The Left Front government had remained indifferent to the issue. Now, the Mamata Banerjee government is trying to put an end to it, by removing the commission system for good.There are private buses in which there are two conductors. In such cases, the two conductors and the driver of the bus get 24 percent of the total amount of the bus fare they collect in a day. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedThere are some buses, mainly the mini-buses, in which there is one conductor and a helper. In such cases, the driver gets 14 percent and conductor gets 9 percent of the total fare collected, while Rs 250 is given to the helper per day.The commission system is in place only in five districts, namely Kolkata, Howrah, Hooghly and North and South 24-Parganas. In all other districts, the driver and conductor get salaries at the beginning of every month from bus owners.Representatives of the bus owners’ associations have urged the state Transport department to frame a guideline in this connection.last_img read more
