UK gambling industry charity GambleAware has announced its list of donors for the year ending 31 March 2020, with GVC’s £1.46m donation again leading the way.In total, 956 entities – mostly from gambling businesses – made voluntary donations, worth a combined £10.1m, just exceeding the charity’s target of £10m, after failing to reach the target last year.Ladbrokes Coral operator GVC was one of three operators to donate at least £1m, with Paddy Power Betfair operator Flutter Entertainment and WIlliam Hill donating exactly £1m each.Bet365 followed with a donation of £865,000. Sky Betting and Gaming donated £705,000, with parent company the Stars Group adding a further £125,000.Gamesys donated £426,000, Betway £153,500 and Genisis Global £145,000.Among suppliers, Playtech was the largest donor with £150,000, and SG Gaming’s The Global Draw brand donated £85,714.GambleAware asks all businesses who profit from gambling in the UK to donate at least 0.1% of gross gambling yield, or if their gross gambling yield is less than £250,000, then to donate at least £250.The charity also received £1.4m through three regulatory settlements agreed by operators and the Gambling Commission during the year.The largest of these settlements was with Gamesys, for £690,000 after it was found to have failed to prevent gambling harm and breached UK money laundering regulations.LeoVegas, meanwhile, paid a £600,000 settlement over failings related to misleading advertising and the handling of customers in 2018. Playtech also paid a £155,000 settlement.Industry body the Betting and Gaming Council said it was happy to see its members donating funds to support safer gambling.“We are pleased that our members have stepped up their funding of GambleAware along with a range of other charities to increase the help and support available to those at risk,” the BGC said.The BGC added that it would step up its commitment research, education and treatment towards safer gambling in the future.“Our largest members have gone further and committed up to an additional £100m to research, education and treatment over the next four years, increasing donations from 0.1% of profit to 1% of profit,” it continued.“With a continued focus on advertising, it is good to see £3.8m raised from the industry for the Bet Regret campaign which amplifies safer gambling messages and also has the support of major media partners. This work and funding will continue in 2020/21.”“Through continued funding by our industry over more than 20 years charitable services are able to provide free of charge treatment, support & advice services for anyone affected by gambling.” Topics: Legal & compliance Strategylast_img read more

Ten TV stations intervened after martial law declared

first_imgAn army communiqué giving “national security” as the grounds for imposing censorship has been sent to all TV stations (about 40 in all). The censorship seems to have been applied to both anti-government stations such as Bluesky and ASTV and pro-government stations such as Asia Update and P&P in equal measure.Officially, martial law has been declared in order to “restore peace and order” in a country that has been embroiled in a political crisis for more than six months. After Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s removal on 9 May, her opponents marched on government headquarters and the main TV stations, demanding that they stop broadcasting government announcements and instead broadcast those of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee, a political pressure group opposed to the Shinawatra family.Thailand is ranked 130th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Soldiers stormed into MV5, DNN, UDD TV, Asia Update, P&P Channel, 4 Channel, Bluesky TV, FMTV, T News and ASTV and ordered them to stop broadcasting to prevent “distorted” reports. A new release from the army announced the closure of four other television stations, including Voice TV.Unlicensed community radio stations were also ordered to stop broadcasting.The correspondents of several foreign newspapers nonetheless reported that programmes continued to be broadcast on targeted TV stations, albeit with regular interruptions in order to read out announcements in which the army insists that it has not carried out a coup d’état.“The military intervention in the TV stations has been carried out in a completely illegal manner,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “If the army wants the media to provide the public with information, it just has to send them its statements. It does not need to take over newsrooms.”Ismaïl added: “What’s more, this way of behaving is counter-productive. Many media and Internet users are concerned about the way the situation is evolving and the real goals pursued by the army, which has acted without consulting the government. We call on the army to allow all TV stations to cover the political situation freely.”According to Reporters Without Borders’ correspondent, soldiers have taken up position around all TV stations, including those that are not being censored, in order to ensure the regular transmission of military communiqués. to go further News June 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

RSF calls for full probe into reporter’s death in Yekaterinburg

All hypotheses should be considered, including the possibility that he was murdered in connection with his investigative reporting, RSF said.In what circumstances did the 32-year-old Borodin, who worked for the Novy Den news agency, fall from the balcony of his fifth-floor apartment on 12 April? He died from his injuries yesterday without ever recovering consciousness.Borodin covered very sensitive subjects including crime and corruption. He had been the subject of comment at the national level several times in recent months in connection with his reporting on the involvement of Russian mercenaries in Syria, the scandal surrounding the oligarch Oleg Deripaska and the controversy about the Russian film “Matilda.”“We extend our heartfelt condolences to Maxim Borodin’s family and colleagues, and we demand a full and impartial investigation into his death,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “In view of the highly sensitive nature of his investigative reporting, all hypotheses must be given serious consideration, including the possibility that he was murdered in connection with his reporting.”The Investigative Committee, which is responsible for investigating the most serious crimes in Russia, says it is examining sereval leads but thinks the possibility that Borodin was murdered is “unlikely.” His apartment door was locked on the inside when the police arrived.But local human rights defender Vyacheslav Bashkov said he received a call from an alarmed Borodin the day before the deadly fall and, according to friends, he had reported several attacks in recent months.Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Essa is the brother of Tiger Memon, accused of being the brain behind the blasts. A division bench of justices SS Shinde and Manish Pitale granted seven days parole to Memon, without police escorts. Memon, who has spent 26 years in prison, approached HC after he was asked to pay Rs 70,000 per day as police escort charges for three days parole by the Superintendent of Nashik Prison, last year. Memon had sought parole after his brother and co-convict, Yusuf Memon passed away on June 26, 2020. APP SD Shinde, appearing for the State submitted that the application for grant of emergency death parole was moved immediately after Memon’s brother’s death and now, there did not seem to be any urgency for his immediate release. She also submitted that he was charged for the escorts as per the rules. Memon, through his lawyers MM Chaudhari argued that due to the covid-19 pandemic the rituals could not be organized. And now, that lockdown conditions had been relaxed, the “Fateha Khwani,” ritual would be performed on January 29, 2021. Memon’s submissions found favour with the Court that observed a policy decision was also taken to grant emergency parole to convicts. “The explanation given in the said affidavit as to why the rituals could not be performed immediately after the death of the brother of the petitioner appears to be plausible, in the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic.” The court observed. The court further observed that Memon has spent 26 years in prison, was granted parole and furlough in the past, and had returned to prison on time on all the occasions. He has been directed to report to Kurla Police station on the third and sixth day of release. The 1993 Bombay bombings were a series of 12 bomb explosions that took place on 12 March, 1993. The Supreme Court of India gave its judgment on 21 March, 2013 after over 20 years of judicial proceedings. However, the two main suspects in the case, Dawood Ibrahim and Tiger Memon, still remain at large.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

ECA Group unveils new USV INSPECTOR 120

first_img October 5, 2018 ECA Group unveils new USV INSPECTOR 120 ECA Group has released a new INSPECTOR 120 unmanned surface vehicle (USV) as a part of its robotic and autonomous systems portfolio for naval applications.As explained by the company, the 12-meter USV has been developed to automatically deploy the ECA Group unmanned systems (UUVs) such as autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) A18-M, towed sonars T18-M, MIDS, etc.In addition, the hull of the INSPECTOR 120 is the best compromise for sea keeping, both in transit and at very low speed for launching and recovery of UUVs, according to the company. The INSPECTOR 120 can be deployed from any vessel of length about 50 meters and beyond with launch and recovery systems.The design of this USV is a result of a study of ship platforms capable to carry different configurations of UMISTM systems for MCM missions. Thus, BE MAURIC recently introduced the design of its new family of dronecarrying vessels, each of these naval platforms being suitable for carrying a typical UMISTM system configuration. The launching and recovery of USVs by sea 4 or 5 is an important criterion for the MCM vessel’s capacity evaluation.ECA said the USVs of the INSPECTOR range are particularly suited for integration on minehunters and BE MAURIC is working on the optimization of this integration as well as on automated recovery of USVs.
