Minerva calls EGM following KiFin bust-up

first_imgWednesday 11 August 2010 8:21 pm Show Comments ▼ Share PROPERTY developer Minerva has called an emergency meeting to drum up support following demands for a boardroom shake-up from rebel investor KiFin, owned by billionaire Nathan Kirsh. In the latest chapter of an extended power struggle at Minerva, KiFin has proposed the sacking of chairman Oliver Whitehead and chief executive Salmaan Hasan and called for more transparency on terms of its recent restructuring and profit share agreements.KiFin plans to install London property veteran Philip Lewis as interim chief executive, along with former Investec boss Bradley Fried as a non-executive director, if the moves win shareholder approval at an emergency meeting on 8 September. Minerva has hit back at the proposals, accusing leading shareholder KiFin of trying to take control of its activities without paying, after its 50p per share takeover bid collapsed earlier this year.“It’s a pretence to say they don’t want to take control, given their actions over a period of time,” Whitehead told City A.M. “We have no problem with them taking over as long as they pay a proper price. By trying to install Lewis, they are trying to gain control without the hassle of a takeover.” “Besides the demands set out, we have no idea what KiFin has planned for the company. They are just making mischief, putting out negative tittle-tattle,” Whitehead added. Lewis called yesterday for Minerva’s other board members to get involved and calm the dispute. “They have got three good non-executive directors who should be making an effort to find a solution to this problem,” Lewis said. “Kirsh is not seeking control of the company. We simply want management to understand the importance of full disclosure of the key financial information that we are requesting.” whatsapp KCS-content center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy FanBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastElite HeraldKate Middleton Dropped An Unexpected Baby BombshellElite Herald Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofThe Truth About Bottled Water – Get the Facts on Drinking Bottled WaterGayot Minerva calls EGM following KiFin bust-up Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Gamstop names Beerling and Watts as non-executive directors

first_img Regions: UK & Ireland The UK’s national self-exclusion database Gamstop has appointed Kevin Beerling and Dr Jo Watts as independent non-executive directors with immediate effect. Tags: Mobile Online Gambling 11th March 2019 | By contenteditor Legal & compliance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Gamstop names Beerling and Watts as non-executive directors Gamstop has appointed Kevin Beerling and Dr Jo Watts as independent non-executive directors with immediate effect.Beerling joins the UK-focused, industry-managed national online self-exclusion database having most recently served as group finance director of employment, skills, care and education-focused charity the Prospects Group.In his new role with Gamstop, Beerling will take on a number of responsibilities, including governance support for legal services, risk management, human resources and the service’s information and communications technology.Watts joins the Gamstop board having spent much of the last 15 years working in customer analytics and risk management.Currently overseeing the running of data science company Effini, Watts will use her industry knowledge to help the Gamstop scheme grow and develop.Gamstop independent chair Jenny Watson has said the double appointment will support the organisation’s goals of broadening the scheme’s governance and also providing a trusted environment for stakeholders as it works towards becoming a UK licence condition.“We are delighted that these two exceptional leaders in their fields have agreed to lend their expertise to this important project; I am very much looking forward to working with them in the future,” Watson said.Both Beerling and Watts join Gamstop shortly after the scheme was subject to criticism for flaws within its identity verification processes.In January, a BBC Radio 5 Live investigation highlighted a number of flaws in the system, namely the fact that a gambler who had self-excluded was able to bypass the process by simply changing their user details.At the time, GamStop accepted such flaws are a concern and said it was working to improve the solution.GamStop is free of charge for users and provides the option to self-exclude from online gaming activities for six months, one or five years. Having launched in April last year, more than 50,000 UK residents have since used the service to block access to gambling sites.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Legal & compliance Marketing & affiliates Email Addresslast_img read more

Rehberg was ordained and consecrated as the ninth bishop of the Diocese of Spokane on March 18 at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in Spokane, Washington. During the course of the service, the new bishop received a number of gifts including a pectoral cross, ring, stole, miter and crozier. During the service, she was “seated” in the “cathedra” or bishop’s chair that is symbolic of the bishop’s office. More than 650 people attended the festive consecration and ordination service, and more than 6,850 joined the service by live-streaming video. Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry led the service as chief consecrator. The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, former presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, was the preacher for the service.Banners representing the diocese’s congregations and several organizations led the procession of diocesan and interfaith clergy, regional dignitaries, and choristers from congregations around the diocese. The choir of more than 100 voices joined awe-inspiring carillon, brass, and pipe organ music before, during, and after the service. Following the service, worshippers enjoyed a celebratory reception in the cathedral’s Great Hall. The entire service may be viewed on the diocesan website at this link.  Rehberg was elected ninth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Spokane on Oct. 18, 2016, during the diocese’s 52nd annual convention. Prior to her election, she was the rector of Episcopal Church of the Nativity, in Lewiston, Idaho, a position she had held since 2006.  Before being elected, she served the diocese as chair of the Commission on Ministry, a canon for regional mission, and a trainer for the College for Congregational Development. In these ministries, she combined her passion for equipping people for ministry and assisting congregations in becoming more faithful, healthy and effective communities of faith. She has a master of divinity from General Seminary, a doctor of ministry from Wesley Seminary, and a doctor of philosophy in chemistry.  She was a professor of organic chemistry at Bucknell University, in addition to having served her community as an emergency medical technician and firefighter. Rehberg succeeds the Rt. Rev. James E. Waggoner, Jr., who served as the eighth bishop of the diocese for more than 16 years. The Episcopal Diocese of Spokane is the Episcopal Church in Eastern Washington and North Idaho.

The Horned Frogs held Iowa State scoreless during the final four minutes of the second quarter and extended their lead to 14 points.

Journalist sentenced to 18 months in prison

first_img News Receive email alerts News RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive RSF_en Organisation A former journalist for the local weekly II Meridiano, Massimiliano Melilli, was sentenced on appeal to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay a 100 000 euro fine for defamation by a court in Trieste, north-east Italy.Reporters Without Borders strongly condemned the 24 February sentence, in a letter to Justice Minister Roberto Castelli, pointing out that under recommendations by the UN Human Rights Commission and the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression, prison sentences should not be imposed for press offences.”Although the party who believes itself defamed is obviously entitled to reparation, it is however unthinkable that a journalist should be imprisoned, in the one of the founding countries of the European Union, for having written an article,” said the international press freedom organisation. “Locking up this journalist would be a real disgrace for Italy and for Europe,” it added, calling for urgent reform of Italian legislation on defamation.The offending articles, published on 9 and 16 November 1996, reported on rumours of “erotic parties” supposedly attended by Trieste high society. The journalist especially focused on Rosanna Illy, wife of the then mayor, now president of the Frioul-Vénétie region, Riccardo Illy, but without actually naming her. Rosanna Illy denied the allegations and had sued for libel, saying that the journalist had distorted her remarks, in an interview carried by Il Meridiano.At the lower court on 1st June 2000, Massimiliano Melilli and Francesco Paticchio, the newspaper’s editor in chief, were sentenced to 18 months in prison, although the prosecution had called for a six-month sentence. On appeal, Paticchio was discharged because of his poor state of health. Melilli appealed to the Court of Cassation.Reporters Without Borders recalled that Italian courts handed down prison sentences for defamation in 2001, against Stefano Surace, former managing editor of the weekly Le Ore, and in 2002, against Raffaele Jannuzzi, former journalist on the daily Il Giornale di Napoli.
