See all posts by Peter Stephens Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The performances of many UK shares have been disappointing in 2020. Risks including coronavirus and Brexit have weighed on investor sentiment. This has sent many stocks to their lowest levels for a number of years.However, their falls could present buying opportunities for long-term investors. The recovery prospects for the economy and stock market mean that buying cheap shares today may prove to be a profitable move.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…With that in mind, here are two FTSE 100 shares that have fallen 25%+ in 2020. They may now offer margins of safety that produce long-term investment gains.A large decline relative to other UK sharesWPP’s (LSE: WPP) 38% fall since the start of the year means it has underperformed many UK shares. The advertising and branding business has experienced falling revenues as the world economy’s outlook has deteriorated.However, its recent interim results showed that it is making progress in improving its long-term prospects. For example, it has continued to make cost savings and has further shifted its focus towards online opportunities. This could mean that it is in a good position to respond to a quickening in the move to e-commerce that is currently taking place among consumers.Looking ahead, WPP is expected to outperform the financial performances of many UK shares next year. Its bottom line is expected to rise by around 30%. This puts it on a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 9.2. Although its forecasts are likely to change depending on the economy’s outlook, it seems to offer good value for money after its share price decline. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of it for the long run.An undervalued FTSE 100 stockStandard Life Aberdeen (LSE: SLA) has also delivered a disappointing performance compared to other UK shares. Its share price is currently down 25% since the start of the year, with an uncertain global economic environment weighing on investor sentiment.The company’s recent half-year results showed that it is making progress in implementing its strategy. For example, it was able to reduce adjusted operating expenses by 11% through a range of efficiency measures. It also delivered strong investment performance, with 68% of its assets under management outperforming their benchmarks.Looking ahead, Standard Life Aberdeen is forecast to deliver a 17% growth in net profit next year after a challenging current year. This puts it on a forward P/E ratio of around 15.8, and suggests that it offers good value for money relative to other UK shares.The potential for a global economic turnaround could lift asset prices, which would be likely to have a positive impact on the company’s financial performance. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of it for the long run after its recent decline. Peter Stephens owns shares of Standard Life Aberdeen and WPP.

Some dioceses want changes in denominational health plan

first_img Rector Collierville, TN March 20, 2012 at 2:29 pm Fairness to all church employees is a basic justice issue. The national debate on health care threatens to break down because basic health care for all may limit options for a few. Surely our church should stand with those who are disadvantaged on this issue. If congregations do not have the funds to properly compensate all their employees, then we all have the duty to advocate for the national plan that will include everyone. Adding our voices to the public discourse and search for solutions is part of our ministry now. March 23, 2012 at 7:06 pm Are you serious? That is your response to this issue? God help us! Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL March 17, 2012 at 8:33 am I strongly support changes to this canon. To switch to this plan and include lay-clergy parity would cost our parish almost $48,000 in additional premiums in 2013 — for just 3 employees. We have a plan from a local agent with BCBS that has equivalent coverage and significantly lower premiums. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Kathryn Ryan says: Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 March 22, 2012 at 9:36 am As a General Convention Deputy, I am intrigued by the West Missouri Resolution instructing CPG to create a truly denominational health plan in which plans and costs would be the same throughout all of TEC, or at least the domestic USA dioceses. Such a system would, no doubt, still have net winners and losers in terms of which dioceses and congregations experience ups and downs in costs — that is inevitable with ANY change to the present scattershot system. But it would mean that everyone in TEC would be operating by the same set of rules and dealing with the same costs, as has long been the case with clergy pensions.I have read somewhere that the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America operates with such a denomination-wide system and have a vague (and, I hope, accurate) recollection that their denominational budget provides some premium assistance to financial-challenged Synods. CPG would do well to examine what our sisters and brothers in the ELCA are doing, how it might work in TEC and, just maybe, how TEC and the ELCA could partner in the challenging task for providing adequate and equitable health coverage for both clergy and laity. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR March 2, 2013 at 7:03 am The changes in the health plan will benefit the patients medical treatment a lot. March 20, 2012 at 2:31 pm Your figures expose a great inequality and puzzle. In another venue, I believe $48,000 might cover six employees.

We are talking here about some very significant increases in medical costs in an economy that has yet to rebound. The G.C. has to be realistic about what congregations can bear. As my colleague, Stephanie Wethered, (from my former Diocese of Newark) stated, the inevitable result of mandating increases in this medical coverage will be reduction in the hours (and salaries) of both clergy and laity. In my opinion, this does not make much sense. In fact, it will hinder ministry in local congregations. At St. Michael’s Cathedral here in Boise, Idaho, I implemented a medical plan which was modeled after that of the Medical Trust. We worked with a local insurance broker, and customized the plan according to our needs. Our former bishop was absolutely opposed to it, until he saw how many thousands of dollars we were saving (yes, I said thousands for our seven full time staff.) In time, and with the guidance of a new bishop, our plan was implemented by the whole Diocese, and it saved them thousands of dollars. We need to have the ability to customize such plans, utilizing local resources, in order to effectively and creatively do the ministry to which we’ve been called. It’s a new ball game, folks. The new paradigm for effective ministry (including how we take care of our employees) involves more local flexibility in decision-making, not less.

Unfortunately, there is no way to equalize medical benefits throughout the Episcopal Church, as the availability, quality and cost of treatment varies significantly from place to place. At the same time, so does the potential for growth in wealth, in population numbers, and in the various opportunities for mission and ministry. Though I understand and affirm the desire for just benefits for lay employees and for the cost savings that collective purchasing can achieve, I do not see how we can create a fair system (as proposed by the Diocese of West Missouri) by equalizing the cost for healthcare across the country, when there are so many other variables in the finances of carrying out mission and ministry. Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Belleville, IL [Episcopal News Service] Concerned about the financial realities of implementing a denomination-wide health insurance plan, at least four Episcopal Church dioceses are formally asking the 77th meeting of General Convention this July to change the terms of the program that is to be implemented less than six months after convention adjourns.The Diocese of Central New York has filed a resolution with the General Convention office that would have the convention defer the Jan. 1, 2013, participation deadline for three years. The resolution would also allow those entities required by canon to participate to purchase health insurance from other providers besides the Episcopal Medical Trust, the Church Pension Fund affiliate that is designated to administer the program.The Diocese of Ohio has also proposed a resolution to the General Convention to remove the mandate that insurance be bought from the Medical Trust.The Diocese of North Carolina wants the General Convention to require a study of “the impact of full compliance with Resolution 2009-A177.” And, the resolution would have the convention not require any diocese to adopt the minimum cost-sharing guidelines for parity between clergy and lay employees called for in the plan until the study has been acted upon the next meeting of convention in 2015.The Diocese of West Missouri is asking that the implementation date be suspended and that the convention instruct the Medical Trust to create “a single, unified national plan for the entire Episcopal Church with no variance in premium costs from diocese to diocese, thereby eliminating dramatic cost differences for similar health insurance coverage between dioceses and regions of the Episcopal Church.”Other Episcopal dioceses have passed resolutions urging changes in the plan, but have not actually filed or planned to file accompanying “C resolutions” with the General Convention office as the other four have.In addition, the House of Bishops’ Bishops from the Small Dioceses group has asked CPF to consider a major change in the plan. The request came after CPF officials met with them in November 2011, according to CPF.“Although a single rate was not part of the resolution, at the request of the House of Bishops, the Medical Trust is studying the implications of a single rate on health benefit costs,” Frank Armstrong, Medical Trust senior vice president and general manager and Laurie Kazilionis, vice president for client relations, said in a written statement e-mailed to Episcopal News Service.Concerns directed at 2009 General Convention decisionThe concerns expressed are directed toward a decision General Convention made in July 2009 when, via Resolution A177, it told the Church Pension Fund to implement a denomination-wide health (DHP) plan by Jan. 1, 2013, with benefits to be provided through the Medical Trust. Part of the rationale for the decision was that such a plan would save money, mitigate inequities between lay and clergy employees and improve employees’ access to health insurance.On Jan. 1, dioceses, congregations (including cathedrals, parishes and missions) as well as certain official church agencies are required to provide health insurance benefits to all clergy and lay employees who work 1,500 hours (30 hours a week) or more per year in the church’s domestic dioceses (including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands). Employees who work 20 hours or more a week may voluntarily participate according to guidelines their employers set.These requirements will not initiate a big change in many dioceses. As of January 2012, according to CPF, 93 of the church’s 101 domestic dioceses and 45 groups are enrolled in one of the 22 Medical Trust health plans offered under the DHP. Those enrollments were “based on the attractiveness of the product and price,” CPF said in the statement. Seventy-eight of those 93 dioceses have been with the Medical Trust since before 2009.Under the plan, dioceses make their own decisions about what Medical Trust health plans they offer, whether or not to offer domestic-partner healthcare benefits and whether its schools, daycare facilities, and other diocesan institutions are required to participate.The Medical Trust is what’s known as a self-funded church plan and is the provider of benefits through its partnerships with insurance providers such as Cigna, Kaiser, Aetna, United Healthcare, and Empire BlueCross BlueShield. It currently provides in-network access to 98 percent of covered Episcopal employees nationwide, according to CPF. The Medical Trust’s 22 different plan designs all include mental health, vision, an employee assistance program, and health advocacy benefits. Dental-care plans also are available.Employees can opt out if they have health benefits through an approved source such as a spouse’s or partner’s employment, military-service benefits or coverage from a former employer.Resolution A177 and the canon it enacted require that each diocese establish a cost-sharing policy that is the same for eligible clergy and lay employees. The policy determines the minimum amount that a congregation must contribute towards the monthly premium for eligible clergy and lay employees. The dioceses that have already instituted or formulated cost-sharing policies have chosen options ranging from mandating that employers pay the full cost of a specific plan to requiring all employees to pay a percentage of any plan or of a specific plan.Concern over the costs involved with implementing the DHP is exacerbated by the fact that the church also faces another deadline on Jan. 1, 2013. The 2009 General Convention also made it canonically mandatory for employers to enroll lay employees scheduled to work a minimum of 1,000 hours annually for any domestic Episcopal Church organization or body subject to the authority of the church in a CPF-sponsored lay employee pension plan. The exceptions are Episcopal employers that are providing lay pension benefits through an equivalent non-CPF-sponsored defined benefit plan and schools providing pension benefits through a TIAA-CREF defined contribution plan.Most employers of Episcopal Church clergy have been required since 1917 to pay assessments into CPF’s pension fund for priests. The current rate is 18 percent of the cleric’s total compensation package (salary, housing, utilities and Social Security tax reimbursement). The lay pension system will require a maximum nine percent contribution, depending on the plan chosen.CPF predicted in its feasibility report to the 2009 General Convention that the church as a whole could save $134 million in the first six years (beginning in 2013) after the fully implemented denominational health plan replaces the current voluntary and fragmented insurance system.Jim Morrison, CPF executive vice president and chief operating officer for risk bearing business, told ENS in the written statement that the denomination-wide plan, which is now only partially implemented ahead of the 2013 deadline, has already resulted in what he called “cumulative cost-containment,” i.e., savings over prevailing rates of more than eight percent or $34.5 million from 2010 through to the present. The Medical Trust was able to negotiate with vendors prior to the formal start of the DHP implementation process and thus added $2 million in savings in 2009 added. He said those savings have been passed through by way of lower annual rate increases for participating dioceses in 2009 through 2012.Armstrong and Kazilionis added that the Medical Trust is maximizing cost-containment through cross-denominational purchasing, “leveraging scale in vendor negotiations, and optimizing provider and pharmacy discounts.”Morrison compared the DHP’s performance to that of U.S. employers’ experience from 2010 to 2012, who he said saw health insurance premiums increase an average of eight percent to 12 percent annually, while the Medical Trust’s increases averaged only 5.5 percent to 5.8 percent annually during the same period.An example from one dioceseThe Diocese of Newark‘s experience in beginning to implement the DHP is in some ways illustrative of the concerns that dioceses are raising.The Bishop’s Advisory Committee on HR and Benefits in September proposed that Newark congregations be required to pay a minimum of 90 percent of the cost of single coverage for the average-priced plan offered. The proposal was met with strong resistance from diocesan clergy, who said the cost-sharing minimum essentially cut their salaries and could force them to pay even more to insure spouses or partners, and children.The Rev. Stephanie Wethered, rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Essex Fells, New Jersey, told ENS in an interview that it made “no business or moral sense” to her to require all diocesan clergy to face the potential of a salary and/or benefit reduction in order to ensure that a handful of parishes “do the right thing” and insure their eligible lay employees.St. Peter’s parish fully covers the cost of providing her and its four full-time lay employees with health, short-term disability and life insurance, pension benefits and a health savings account. She said the parish purchases its health insurance for less money outside of the Medical Trust and thus she opposes the mandate that participants purchase insurance via that agency.A plan to present the cost-sharing proposal at the diocese’s January convention was shelved in favor of a special convention on the issue June 9. In announcing the special convention, Bishop Mark Beckwith said that there are “some critical justice issues in providing parity of benefits for the clergy and laypeople who work for the church” and added that there are also “some significant financial realities that need to be considered.” He said the committee’s proposal had sought a balance between what he called “justice and financial reality.”Wethered told ENS that she is “heartened” by recent refinements the advisory committee has made to the proposal that will come to the special convention. While the 10 percent cost-sharing proposal is still on the table the group has proposed alternative ways to achieve parity in funding.In January, the annual diocesan convention asked General Convention delay the implementation deadline. The language echoed an October 2011 resolution in the Diocese of Olympia.Predictions of unintended consequencesThose advocating for changes in the plan not only worry that the ways dioceses set their cost sharing policies could result in an effective salary reduction to those whose benefits are currently fully paid by their employers, they also suggest that employers will choose the minimum standard as the maximum standard and employees would thus have their benefits reduced.“It’s incredibly naïve to think that [congregational leadership] wouldn’t use that mandate to free themselves of that burden” that the cost of health insurance places on budgets during “these really financially tough times,” Wethered said.Two members of the Diocese of East Carolina told ENS in a phone interview that A177 mandates are indeed financially burdensome. Monty Pollard of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, North Carolina “it’s not that we don’t care about our employees but it’s a dollars and cents thing” for congregations that are trying to be “disciplined” in managing their budgets.Dave Whichard said that in many members of their parish are not able to provide to their families the same level of coverage that the diocese says must be provided to the parish’s employees. “You’ve got to have some parity there, too, it seems to me,” he said.East Carolina’s convention has asked its deputation to General Convention to support efforts to postpone the implementation date and to make the plan “more truly denomination-wide, addressing such issues as the number of bands that establish the costs of such insurance and the lack of a single nation-wide pool of participants.”Back in Newark the Rev. Thomas Matthews, rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Phillipsburg, New Jersey, who listened to part of the A177 debate in 2009, said some dioceses’ implementation plans seem to be using the resolution’s mandates as “a reset button on how we cover clergy and laity all together.” He wants to see the 2012 meeting of General Convention stipulate that A177 was not meant to result in “reduction in [clergy] benefits as a way to extend benefits to laity.”The Diocese of Missouri specifically addressed that concern during its November 2012 convention by saying that employers in the diocese “shall not reduce existing coverage or increase the cost of existing coverage to employees to comply with A177.”Matthews and Wethered also suggested that, in Matthews’ words, “some lay people are going to have their hours decreased so that churches don’t have to pay for it” because they would then fall below the eligibility definition.“I may have to cut employees back because of these mandates and what a shame,” Wethered said.And, the Diocese of Texas has asked whether the church should change its approach to health insurance when the United States also is implementing insurance reform. Among the conclusions a task force spelled out in an October letter to the diocese was the suggestion that in July General Convention “seriously revisit” the denomination-wide health plan in light of both the “cost and complexity of the implementation” of the plan and the implications of federal health care reform. The task force suggested that the diocese hold off on making any decisions on coverage and contributions until after the July meeting of convention.CPF’s e-mailed statement to ENS said that the church will still need the DHP to assist in cost-containment efforts regardless of federal health care reforms. Armstrong and Kazilionis said that there are several specific provisions of the federal law that may impact the church. “We are working with other denominations through the Church [Benefits] Alliance to determine how groups participating in Medical Trust healthcare plans may be affected,” they said.They also acknowledged that issues “related to regional costs of living, salary standards, and benefit arrangements have always been a concern for the church” and they said the Medical Trust is “encouraging and facilitating communication at the diocesan leadership level to address this.”Morrison said in his e-mailed comments that CPF is “very sensitive to cost concerns around the church” and he acknowledged that the economic landscape had changed greatly since the feasibility study was conducted ahead of the 2009 meeting of General Convention.“We recognize that many dioceses, congregations, and church institutions are experiencing financial stress due to the state of the U.S. economy, which has declined since the last General Convention,” he said.In that same e-mailed statement, Morrison said he was “not sure how these resolutions will be received at General Convention, but as agents of the Episcopal Church, we will be supportive of the outcome, whatever it is.”– The Rev.

Howard Lake | 8 December 2016 | News BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal chooses Donorfy for CRM “Donorfy was built to scale according to demand, and this appeal shows how effective that is. The built-in integration with the Stripe payment gateway, coupled with the sheer power that’s available from the Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure meant that Donorfy was able to process thousands of donations with ease as the appeal was broadcast on radio and on TV.“The Gift Aid is also collected automatically, which is a huge time saver. And as the data goes directly into the CRM it means the team at St Martins are able to get timely analysis and insights into the giving as the appeal happens.”Actor Hugh Dennis presents Songs of Praise from St Martin-in-the-FieldsLaunched in 2015 by charity technology experts Robin Fisk and Ben Brett, Donorfy is available to all UK charities. St Martin-in- the-Fields, the church on London’s Trafalgar Square, has selected Donorfy as their new CRM solution and for handling donations during their current annual Christmas appeal, which is supported by BBC Radio 4.With the appeal in its 90th year, BBC Radio 4 listeners have given almost £4,500,000 in the last two years to the church’s Christmas appeals. The money helps homeless people who receive shelter, food, aid and advice at The Connection at St Martin’s. It also maintains a special Vicar’s Relief Fund which makes thousands of one-off grants to vulnerable people across the UK.Donorfy was chosen by the St Martin-in-the-Fields appeal team to handle the high volume of donations that arrive online, by phone and in the post, with the aim of achieving cost and time savings compared to their previous CRM solution.Since it is cloud-based, it gives charities instant access to their donor database from any device.Tim Bissett, Director of the Christmas Appeal at St Martin-in- the-Fields, explains:“Donorfy have helped the St Martin-in- the-Fields Charity transform its fundraising from cottage industry to exemplary organisation. Their knowledge and experience has enabled us to not just migrate to a modern donor management system, but to a cost effective, integrated system that is right for the demands of the Christmas Appeal. There is no doubt that without Donorfy we would have taken far longer to achieve this”.CEO Robin Fisk explains how Donorfy is equipped to handle the demands of large scale events like the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal: Advertisement  207 total views,  1 views today  208 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24last_img read more

November 9, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Former Playboy editor does not deserve to be in prison RSF_en News August 21, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders calls for the release of Erwin Arnada, the former editor of the Indonesian version of the magazine Playboy, who was arrested a month ago to begin serving a two-year sentence for indecency that was imposed under pressure from an Islamist organization.“The vision of a serene democracy and modern Islam hailed by visiting US President Barack Obama must be accompanied by religious tolerance and respect for every kind of sensibility,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Erwin Arnada has no place being in prison as he obtained a publication licence for the magazine and did not break the press law.”The press freedom organisation added: “We deplore the fact that the police and courts acted under pressure from a religious group that is trying to impose its moral views on Indonesia’s criminal code. It is the press law, not the criminal code, that should be applied in this case. This mistake must be quickly righted.”The police arrested Arnada on the island of Bali on 9 October 2010 to start serving the jail sentence which Indonesia’s supreme court imposed in August despite the fact that a lower court had acquitted himA Jakarta court has been hearing an appeal against supreme court’s sentence since 26 October.“I don’t have any witness or new evidence in this case,” Arnada’s lawyer, Todung Mulya, said when the hearing began. “The base for the appeal is a mistake by the high judges in deliberating the sentence,” he added, explaining that Arnada should have been tried under Indonesia’s press law, one of the most liberal in the region. Launched by the Velvet Silver Media group in 2006, the Indonesian version of Playboy contained no photos of nudes.

The court had asked the state government to relook at the guidelines with an emphasis on ‘dignity of the dead’. It had said “What is important is that dead bodies are given dignified cremation or burial, depending upon the cultural and religious traditions of a particular dead person.” The revised protocol says that “Hasty disposal of the dead body of Covid-19 person should be strictly avoided. The safety and well being of everyone who attends to the dead body should be the first priority.” The family members can view the body without touching it and adhering to all other standard precautions. At no point of time, the family members can touch or kiss the body. At the crematorium/burial grounds, rituals such as reading from scripts, sprinkling of holy water and any other ritual which does not require touching of the body shall be allowed. Viewing of the dead body by unzipping at the face end of the bag shall be allowed. As per the earlier protocol, BBMP officials are to transfer the dead body to the crematorium or burial ground and no person was allowed inside the hospitals. To which the bench had said “If in case of a particular religious practice in a community does not allow a woman in the house to visit burial or crematorium ground, it may not be possible for a woman in the house to see the face of the dead person.” In its written submissions the state government also informed the court that there is no definite conclusion arrived at by experts that the dead body of a COVID-19 person would not cause its spread. There is also no conclusive proof of evidence available from the experts with regard to the virus in the dead body, if any, would die on the death of such COVID-19 infected person. It was also said that while issuing the revised circular in respect of the procedure for disposal of the dead bodies of COVID-19 persons, the procedures adopted by other countries are also taken note of by the State. In regards to the issue of death certificate of a Covid-19 patient, the counsel for BBMP clarified that “On the death of a person either on account of COVID-19 or otherwise, cause of death as the case may be, would be specified in the certificate of death to be submitted by the next kith and kin to the cemetery/burial ground/cremation as the case may be and they in turn would furnish the receipt while submitting the application for issuance of “Death Certificate” under the Registration of Births and Deaths Act, 1969, based upon which the certificate of death would be issued by the Municipal Authority without specifying therein, the cause of death.” Appointment of Expert Committee as per Supreme Court directions The State government informed the court that “Medical Experts Committee has been constituted in accordance with the direction of Apex Court at the State level as well as BBMP/district levels.” However the court pulled up the state by saying “The State, in order to overcome the probable proceedings which we would have been initiated, have now come up with the aforesaid order, which can be said to be in partial compliance of the direction issued by the Apex Court.” It added that “State Level Committee which is now said to have been constituted after a lapse of 1½ months after the direction came to be issued by the Apex Court, does not indicate that at the State level experts from other fields have been inducted to the said Committee. In fact, Committee constituted at the BBMP level as well as District level also does not indicate the name of representative of NGO or eminent personality in the district, whose presence would have made value addition to the said Committee and we say so for the reason that, issues relating to the non availability of hospitals, beds in the hospitals, transportation of the persons tested positive for COVID-19 from their place of residence to the hospital, hygiene at the hospital, providing food to the COVID-19 patients at the hospitals, refusal of admission by private hospitals, are all issues which requires to be ascertained by experts in those fields and mere constitution of the doctors alone in the Committee would not suffice and it would not yield the requisite results or assuage the problems faced by the needy.” Asking the state government to wake up from its ‘slumber’ the bench said “The order which has now been passed by the State, would only indicate that the State is attempting to ‘shed crocodile tears’. We do hope that State will wake up from its slumber and take immediate remedial and corrective steps to comply with the order passed by the Apex Court by implementing it in its letter and spirit, which would not only curtail the spread of COVID-19 but would also address all other issues arising out of said pandemic which is prevalent in the State and spreading with fast pace.” The court will now further consider the batch of petitions dealing with medical facilities for Covid-19 patients in the state on August 4.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
