Trial of Indonesian accused of Kim Jong Nam murder on hold

The trial of an Indonesian woman accused of assassinating the North Korean leader's half-brother was put on hold Tuesday due to a row over witness statements, the latest delay in the case.

Siti Aisyah from Indonesia and Doan Thi Huong from Vietnam have been on trial for over a year, accused of murdering Kim Jong Nam by smearing nerve agent VX on his face at Kuala Lumpur airport.

The brazen assassination in February last year shocked the world but the women have denied murder, saying they believed they were taking part in a prank and were tricked by North Korean agents.

The women, in their 20s, went on trial together in October 2017 but proceedings have moved slowly due to the large numbers of witnesses and the fact hearings are held infrequently.

The defence stage of Aisyah's trial had originally been due to begin in November but was delayed to January after her main lawyer fell ill.

And on Tuesday proceedings in Aisyah's case were temporarily halted when the High Court refused to grant her lawyers access to some witness statements, and they decided to appeal.

Huong's trial is due to resume in March and the court will rule Friday whether it will go ahead, or be put on hold with Aisyah's.

The prosecution stage of the trial, during which the women appeared for hearings together, wrapped up in August. The defence parts of their trials will be held separately.

Aisyah's lawyer Gooi Soon Seng said the witness statements were "essential" for the defence and he would appeal the ruling -- a process that could take months.

"Without (the statements) there would be a real miscarriage of justice. It would compromise our case," he told reporters at the court in Shah Alam, outside Kuala Lumpur.

The seven statements are from witnesses including people who drove Kim Jong Nam around in Malaysia and acquaintances of Aisyah. Prosecutors have refused to hand them over, arguing they should not be made public.

Under current laws, the women will be sentenced to death by hanging if convicted of murdering the estranged relative of the North's leader, Kim Jong Un.

Malaysia's new government, which took power in May, has vowed to abolish capital punishment for all crimes, although parliament still needs to vote on the change.

Indian Bank in Ghana sells its local operations out to Ghana’s CAL Bank

Bank of Baroda Ghana Limited an Indian state-owned lender has open up to sell the company’s local operations shares to other banks who put in the bid to buy it.

This is due to reasons that the company has decided to voluntarily liquidate its business and pull out of the country by December 31, this year.

CAL Bank is among some four banks who have tussled for the opportunity to bid for the operations of the bank.

According to reports, the Baroda Bank had valued its net worth around $41 million and the bank that will win the bid is expected to pay an amount of $38 million in exchange for mainly, Baroda’s deposits.

CAL Bank has been tipped to be the likely winner for the bid because of its position to be able to pay the cash outright.

The Head of Investors Relation of CAL Bank, Ms Dzifa Amegashie, confirmed her outfit’s interest in Baroda to reports revealing that the company “wants to make Broda a merger so that by the first quarter next year they can raise the funds and pay them (Baroda) off so that they can go.

She further said that, though discussions are ongoing, it is still in their early stages, with no due diligence done yet.

Morocco arrests suspect after murder of two Scandinavians: official

Moroccan authorities on Tuesday arrested a suspect following the murder of two Scandinavian tourists in the High Atlas mountains, the interior ministry said.

Other suspects are being sought over the deaths of the two women -- a Dane and a Norwegian -- whose bodies were found on Monday with cuts to their necks, the ministry said.

The bodies were discovered in an isolated mountainous area 10 kilometres (six miles) from the tourist village of Imlil in the High Atlas range.

Imlil is a starting point for trekking and climbing tours of Mount Toukbal, the highest summit in North Africa.

The suspect was arrested in the city of Marrakesh about 60 kilometres north of Imlil, the ministry said.

The Danish victim, Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, "had her throat cut," her mother Helle Petersen was quoted by the Danish newspaper B.T. as saying.

Her family had warned her against going to Morocco "because of the chaotic situation," she added.

According to Jespersen's Facebook page, she had studied in Norway to be a guide.

The other victim was 28 years old, according to Moroccan media.

Security was stepped up in the region and hiking suspended following the discovery of the bodies, media said.

Credit Suisse is telling its wealthiest clients to hurry and move their money out of the UK before Brexit

  • Private bankers at Credit Suisse have reportedly told ultra wealthy clients to accelerate moving assets out of the UK by January.
  • A lack of clarity around Brexit could cause "turmoil" ahead of a rescheduled parliamentary vote on the Brexit deal on January 14.
  • The move comes at a time when the super rich are already leaving UK assets and diversifying their portfolios.

Credit Suisse is sounding the alarm on Brexit uncertainty after advising some of its wealthiest clients to consider accelerating plans to move assets outside the UK ahead of a rescheduled vote on Prime Minister Theresa May's deal in January.

Private bankers at the Swiss lender reportedly contacted key clients to suggest that many customers had already opted to move assets outside of the UK already, and that they should consider doing the same.

Credit Suisse made the suggestion in the aftermath of Prime Minister May's decision to postpone a vote on Brexit until the new year, which the bank said prolonged a period of "turmoil", according to the Financial Times. Meanwhile, UK businesses will be told to prepare for a no-deal Brexit immediately, The Sun reported on Tuesday.

It's another clear sign that market uncertainty over the UK's decision to leave the EU elevated with investors wary of a potential no-deal or a left wing government led by Jeremy Corbyn in the event of a general election. It follows a trend of banks and asset managers moving funds and businesses out of the UK since the Brexit vote ahead of the official leaving date of March 29 2019.

The pound has been down for much of 2018, as has the UK housing market and the benchmark FTSE 100 share index. The FTSE is trading down 0.7% as of 9.05 a.m in London (4.05 a.m EST).

UNHCR launches $2.7 billion appeal for Africa’s largest refugee crisis: South Sudan

Download logo

UNHCR, the UN Refuge Agency, and NGO partners are today launching an appeal for US$2.7 billion to address the live-saving humanitarian needs of South Sudanese refugees in 2019 and 2020. Five years on since the onset of a brutal civil war, over 2.2 million South Sudanese refugees have sought safety in six neighboring countries Uganda, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Central African Republic (CAR). Another 1.9 million remain internally displaced inside South Sudan. UNHCR welcomes that there has been a relative reduction in violence in parts of the country since the signing of the revitalized peace agreement in September 2018. And we appeal to all parties to continue to respect and implement the agreement. Given a history of past breaches to peace initiatives however, UNHCR does not yet view the current environment in South Sudan as being conducive for safe returns of refugees. We also commend the continued generosity of host countries in maintaining open borders for South Sudanese refugees seeking safety, especially given the immense pressures on the limited resources of asylum countries. Due to the scale of displacement, levels of funding have been far outpaced by rising needs. Hugely more international support and solidarity is urgently needed for South Sudanese refugees. Schools are lacking teachers, classrooms, and educational materials leaving half of South Sudan’s refugee children out of school. Health clinics have insufficient doctors, nurses and medications. Low funding has led to food rations being cut in Ethiopia. In Sudan, some refugees and their host communities are having to survive on merely five liters of water per person per day, inevitably leading to tensions. Economic opportunities for refugees to develop their own income streams remain limited. A key priority for UNHCR is the promotion of social cohesion progammes among refugees and their hosts, to ensure the ongoing viability of the two communities living together peacefully and harmoniously. In any refugee situation, it is vital that both communities are helped. Sexual and gender-based violence and child protection activities remain primary concerns, as 83% of refugees are women and children. Many women have reported rape and other forms of sexual and gender-based violence, along with the killings of their husbands, and the abduction of children during flight. Children too have in many cases experienced extreme violence and trauma, including the death of one or both parents. Many have become primary caregivers to younger siblings. Thousands of children have been forcibly recruited as child soldiers by armed groups. In 2018, UNHCR and partners received just 38% of the $1.4 billion requested to support South Sudanese refugees.

British Airways announces return to Pakistan after a decade

British Airways will resume flights to Pakistan next summer, the carrier announced Tuesday, in a major vote of confidence from a Western airline a decade after suspending operations due to security fears.

The British carrier, which halted services in 2008 after the deadly Marriott Hotel bombing in Islamabad, will return in June 2019 with three weekly flights from London's Heathrow airport to the Pakistani capital, airline officials said.

British Airways had six weekly flights to the Pakistani capital before the Marriott attack, which killed more than 50 people and triggered a major drawdown by embassies and international agencies over safety concerns.

The carrier's announcement was "a reflection of the great improvements in the security situation in Pakistan" in the years since, said British High Commissioner to Pakistan Thomas Drew in a statement.

Britain is home to more than a million residents of Pakistani origin, making it the largest Pakistani diaspora community in Europe.

Since the Marriott attack the country has been largely dependent on Middle Eastern carriers such as Emirates and Etihad, with most international flights routed through the Gulf, making travel expensive and cumbersome for many passengers.

Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific was one of the last major international carriers to cease operations in Pakistan after dozens were killed during a 2014 siege at Karachi airport by Taliban militants.

Pakistan has battled homegrown militancy for nearly 15 years, with tens of thousands of people killed.

But the country has seen a dramatic turnaround recently, with security largely stabilised following several military offensives along the Afghan border and crackdowns on insurgents in urban centres.

Militants retain the ability to carry out devastating attacks, however, and analysts have long warned that Pakistan has yet to tackle the root problems of extremism.

Many Western countries have travel advisories in place to warn their citizens of the potential for kidnapping and bomb attacks, especially in areas near the Afghan border.

The announcement came after Prime Minister Imran Khan vowed to revitalise Pakistan's struggling tourism industry in effort to bring in much-needed revenue to its fragile economy.

Pakistan has a rich cultural and archaeological heritage, along with serene alpine valleys, pristine beaches and vast deserts peppered with vibrant Islamic shrines.

The country is also home to some of the world's tallest peaks including K-2 -- the second highest summit after Everest, which sits atop a region of 120 other mountains rising above 7,000 metres (23,000 feet).

Budget Presentation: NANS appeal to National Assembly workers to shelve strike

The National Assembly workers are demanding payment of their outstanding salary arrears, allowances and other welfare packages.

The National Asoociation of Nigerian Students (NANS), has appealed to National Assembly Workers, under the aegis of Parliamentary Staff Association of Nigeria (PASAN), to shelve their ongoing strike.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that business activities at the National Assembly complex, Abuja was paralysed on Monday, as members of PASAN commenced a 4-day warning strike which will run till Thursday.

The National Assembly workers are demanding payment of their outstanding salary arrears, allowances and other welfare packages.

NANS National Public Relations Officer, Mr Bestman Okereafor, made the appeal in in Enugu.

Okereafor said that the ongoing strike would cause a major setback as regards the 2019 National Budget Presentation by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, to a joint session of parliamentarians.

He noted that if not checked, the strike would affect the 2019 appropriation if relevant agencies and government offices concerned do not find lasting solutions to the demand of the PASAN members.

According to him, this is coming in the face of the consistent industrial actions embarked upon by various unions in the different sectors, especially in the education sector.

 NAN’s image maker expressed concern that the negative development of the various strike in the education sector was becoming absolutely unbearable for Nigerian students.

“It is no more news that the Academic Staff Union Of Polytechnics (ASUP) has also joined the league, even as Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) is still on strike.

“Yet, PASAN has shut down the National Assembly over a mirage of issues and this shut down will definitely affect the proposed 2019 Budget Presentation by Mr President on Dec. 19.

“If the presentation is delayed and presented next year, there will be spiral negative effect of the late presentation on our economy generally,’’ he said.
