Rabat – German immigration officers detained Moroccan MPs travelling to Poland to attend COP24. The Frankfurt airport authorities said the MPs did not have a visa.The airport officials detained Casablanca’s Mayor Abdelaziz El Omari and MPs Mohamed Moubdii (MP party), Mohamed Salem Benmassoud and Amal Maysara (PJD), Abdelilah El Mouhajiri and Ahmed Touiji (WFP), Ahmed Touimi (PI), and Noureddine Lazrak (RNI) for over five hours at Frankfurt airport.Morocco World News (MWN) contacted RNI’s communications officer Jawad Chahbaouy, who was aware of the incident. He gave MWN RNI member Lazrak’s phone number, but he was unreachable. The Moroccan embassy in Germany called upon Morocco and Germany’s foreign ministries to get the MPs released. The German immigration officers took photographs of the Moroccan MPs before allowing them to leave the country.A member of the delegation told a Moroccan news outlet that “the MPs “were not aware Germany does not recognize their official passports until German authorities denied access to the airport.”
25 September 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has welcomed moves by the United Nations and the community of French-speaking nations to work more closely on human rights, peacekeeping and other issues, saying it can only contribute to greater security worldwide. Speaking last night to an International Organization of la Francophonie (OIF) event in New York, Mr. Ban said the two organizations were working closely together on many fronts, from peace and security to economic development.“We continue to strengthen our cooperation in the crucial areas of peacekeeping, conflict prevention and electoral assistance,” he said. “We are on the ground together in Haiti, in the Central African Republic (CAR), in Guinea, Niger, Madagascar, Mauritania and the Comoros.”Earlier this year the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay and OIF Secretary-General Abdou Diouf signed an agreement for closer collaboration on promoting human rights.“This is a wide spectrum of activity, and testimony to our strong partnership,” he said, noting that an estimated 200 million people worldwide are French speakers.

UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe ‹ › Months of political unrest in Ukraine led to the removal by Parliament of President Viktor Yanukovych in February, followed by increased tensions in the country’s autonomous region of Crimea, where additional Russian military were recently deployed and a secession referendum was held this past Sunday.Expressing his “profound concern” regarding “the recent incident where Ukrainian military bases were taken over,” the Secretary-General insisted that “it is at moments like this in history that a small incident can quickly lead to a situation spiralling out of anyone’s control,” and stressed that “an honest and constructive dialogue between Kyiv and Moscow is essential.” “I told President Putin that I understand his legitimate concerns related to the situation of the Russian minority in Ukraine. I have said from the beginning of this crisis that it is critical that the human rights of all people in Ukraine, especially minorities, must be respected and protected,” Mr. Ban stressed, applauding the recent commitment by Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to reinstate Russian as an official language in Ukraine along with other positive measures.As UN human rights monitors are starting to deploy in Ukraine – including to eastern parts of the country – the Secretary-General will be continuing his diplomatic mission by traveling to Kiev and meeting with Ukrainian Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov and Prime Minister Yatsenyuk.Recalling that Russia and Ukraine are two founding members of the UN, Mr Ban concluded: “The world is watching and history will judge us on how we assume our responsibilities and our actions as they relate to the fundamental principles of the UN Charter.” Throughout the crisis, the Secretary-General and senior UN officials have consistently called for a solution that is guided by the principles of the UN Charter and that respects Ukraine’s unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity.Briefing the Security Council yesterday in New York, UN Deputy Secretary-General, Jan Eliasson laid out a succinct timeline of the “fast-moving and serious” recent events: Crimean authorities had announced that close to 97 per cent of those who voted in Sunday’s referendum did so in favour of secession from Ukraine; subsequently, Crimea declared its independence, which in turn was recognized by Russia; Monday the European Union and the United States moved to apply targeted sanctions against Russian and Crimean officials.Further: President Putin has signed a treaty to make Crimea part of the Russian Federation; the Government in Kyiv meanwhile has committed to never accept Crimea’s independence or annexation, stating that Crimea is an integral part of Ukraine; and yesterday, Ukraine’s Prime Minister expressed concern that the conflict in the Crimean peninsula is ‘shifting from a political to a military stage.’ “This underscores the dire need for the immediate opening of direct dialogue between Moscow and Kyiv,” he told the Council. “It is clear that we are at a crossroads. I will continue to fulfil my duty as Secretary-General of the United Nations and engage with all relevant parties. We must employ every possible diplomatic tool at our disposal to solve this crisis, which has grave political and economic ramifications,” stressed Mr. Ban, in a statement to the press in Moscow, earlier today. Following a “very productive and constructive meeting” with President Putin, Mr. Ban highlighted Russia’s crucial position in the international scene. “As a permanent member of the Security Council, Russia is critical to the maintenance of international peace and security – nowhere more so than in this region,” he said.The UN chief added that “President Putin has been one of the most important partners to the United Nations and he has been an international leader who has repeatedly called for international disputes to be solved within the framework of the United Nations Charter.”During his meeting, Mr. Ban called on all parties to “refrain from any hasty or provocative actions that could further exacerbate an already very tense and very volatile situation. Inflammatory rhetoric can lead to further tensions and possible miscalculations, as well as dangerous counter-reactions.” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (back to camera) in meeting with President Vladimir Putin.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter slides into third base during a game against the Baltimore Orioles Oct. 10, 2012, at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees won, 3-2.Courtesy of MCTArguably one of the greatest players to ever step on a baseball field, Derek Jeter, announced that the 2014 Major League Baseball season would be his last, via Facebook.Jeter spent all 19 years of his MLB career playing shortstop for the New York Yankees.The sixth overall pick in the 1992 MLB draft, Jeter has far from disappointed any critics by being American League Rookie Of the Year in 1996, being selected to 13 All-Star appearances along with more than 3,000-hits and becoming the Yankees all-time leader in stolen bases. And how could we forget his highest accomplishments: leading the Yankees to five World Series championships.Jeter is the poster-child of professional sports. You would think a guy with his status making millions of dollars would go buck wild, but he has always kept a cool demeanor and avoided been involved in any known scandals while under the bright lights of New York City.Jeter has had his fair share of critics, including myself.Top players like Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez were caught or confessed to using performance enhancing drugs. Since then, I have always been skeptical of players from that era of baseball.Whenever I would watch Jeter play or hear of the numbers he put up, thoughts like “oh, he’s really going to get caught with those steroids someday” kept running through my mind.It was like waiting to hear that bit of bad news that you knew was coming, but wanted to do all you could to deny it. But I’m thankful that new never broke, and I pray it never does.I really do think Jeter deserves a standing ovation for having been surrounded by players like Rodriguez and never sticking a needle up his arm to help him play better.After Jeter officially retires at the end of the 2014 season, a question will be circulating the sports world. Not if Jeter will be inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame, but rather how long will it take.The Hall of Fame requires for the inductee to have played in the MLB a minimum of 10 years and be retired for five. The committee takes performance record in consideration, and I have no doubt in my mind that what Jeter has accomplished throughout his career he will some day join the elite in the prestigious honor.
“Not all alpacas have this guard quality – generally it’s grumpy, old, castrated men and they need to be in pairs or groups. They are communal animals so they don’t do well on their own.”Tom described the moment the alpacas were introduced to the birds as “like a mexican stand-off”.“We backed the trailer into the turkey range and let the tailgate down and the alpacas came galloping out and then they stood still, frozen staring at the turkeys while the turkeys just stared back.“But then they sort of acknowledged each other and now they co-exist pretty happily with the turkeys.”The grass-eating animals react aggressively to foxes because in their native South America, wild foxes will try to kill unguarded baby alpacas.Tom said he has also noticed there have been less damaged birds – sold as ‘downgrades’ – since the alpacas arrived.He said: “If we get a fox attack, turkeys are killed but the rest of them are scared and they jump on top of each other and scratch each other – which damages their skin. But since introducing the alpacas, our downgrades this year are significantly less than usual too.”Copas Turkeys start planning for the Christmas demand in February.The birds roam around on the farm until they are 26 weeks old when they are slaughtered, hand plucked and hung up for a length of their time – which improves their flavour.The farm charges £14 per kg but Mr Copas says the cost of rearing the birds is reflected in the price.He told the BBC: “We spend more on feed than would be the case for supermarket birds that are typically slaughtered at 16 or 18 weeks.” Owner Tom Copas said their farm manager first became interested in the idea when he heard about alpacas’ strong guard qualities.After the fox attack, which cost the Copas Turkeys around £27,000 in retail value, the business owners tried more powerful electric fences and a range of other tactics but the problem did not go away.“We thought we would try and alpacas and I spent a couple of days calling around the alpaca world trying to find out more about what I needed and where I would find them,” said Tom.“Eventually I found a lovely lady in Gloucester who had some alpacas she couldn’t keep any more so we offered them a good home.” The herd of 10 alpacas are in charge of protecting a gang of 24,000 free-range turkeys Credit:Copas Turkeys Alpacas are used all over the world to deter wild dogs and coyotesCredit: Copas Turkeys Alpacas have become the latest weapon in the battle against foxes as Christmas turkey suppliers use them to protect their posse.After a fox attack last year which killed 150 birds, a family-owned business in Berkshire has recruited ten “grumpy” alpacas to protect their prized birds.Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, Prancer, Dasher, Dancer, Sage, Onion, Donner and Vixen are now keeping watch over the Copas’ 24,000 turkeys.

Show more Barristers are to go on strike in protest at the “collapsing” criminal justice system, meaning court proceedings across the country face massive disruption next week.Leading legal chambers Doughty Street, Garden Court and 25 Bedford Row are among those set to take part in the action.It comes after the Criminal Bar Association (CBA) has warned that prisons, courts, the police and probation services are “underfunded and in chaos”.Chair Angela Rafferty QC said “relentless cuts” have resulted in “near collapse” of the justice system. “You cannot have a national asset and treat it like this,” she added.She said under-funding means cases are not being properly investigated by the police and CPS, there is uncertainty and delay at court and “unnecessary distress” for witnesses, victims and defendants.”Meanwhile the poor and vulnerable in society are being denied access to justice,” she added. “The system is desperate, it cannot endure any more cuts.” The CBA has advised its 4,000 members to take action after 90 per cent voted in favour, with a turnout of around 55 per cent.According to a recent survey by the General Council of the Bar, more than a third of criminal barristers said they are considering leaving the profession, with the main reason being low income and work-life balance.A spokesman for the Bar Council said: “The Ministry of Justice budget has been slashed across the board in the last decade. Liam Allan was one of many defendants who saw their trials collapse over the fiasco with disclosuresCredit:BBC A Ministry of Justice spokeswoman said: “We are extremely disappointed with the position the Criminal Bar Association has taken today, especially given that they and other members of the bar participated fully in the design of the scheme.”Our reforms will reflect the actual work done in court, representing better value for the taxpayer, and will replace an archaic scheme under which barristers were able to bill by pages of evidence.”We greatly value the work of criminal advocates and will continue to engage with the bar moving forwards.” The recent disclosure crisis, which led to the collapse of a number of rape trials last year prompting the Met Police to review all their cases, has also highlighted “the appalling state of our system”, a CBA spokesman said.”Criminal barristers are the ones who have to pick up the pieces and are not being paid for the disclosure work which stops people going to prison,” he said. “The effects, in every area, are becoming ever clearer: courts and prisons in a deplorable state of repair, leading to unacceptable conditions, litigants struggling to deal with their own cases without legal help in the most trying of circumstances, overloaded courts and judges, increasing delays and judicial morale at rock bottom, to name but a few.”While the current investment in the court reform programme is substantial, it cannot hope to reverse all of the harm that has already been done, and continues to be done, and its focus is really elsewhere.”The planned strike is a reaction to the Advocates’ Graduated Fee Scheme (AGFS), which is due to come into force on April 1. The Ministry of Justice said the scheme is cost neutral and that the amount barristers will be paid for legal aid work will be reflected by how complex a case is.

“He says it is a figure the hospital just can’t afford.”Mr Kwong said Parkin worked for a contractor at the hospital, firstly as a gardener and then a maintenance worker for four years but left three years before the offending there happened.He said in just over a month, during February and March, this year, the defendant committed seven burglaries at the site, using the master key to get into the staff offices.Mr Kwong said: “He knew all areas of the site like the back of his hand and abused his knowledge to carry out the burglaries.”Three of the victims were female doctors whose handbags he stole after using the master key to get into their locked offices, DerbyshireLive reported.He pleaded guilty to burglary and fraud and was jailed for two years and three months.Judge Nirmal Shant QC said: “It is quite plain you used your inside knowledge of the hospital, gleaned from four years working there, to carry out that set of offences.”Speaking after sentencing, a spokesman for the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust said: “This incident incurred costs that the NHS really can’t afford to waste, as offences such as this ultimately detract from the amount of money the Trust is able to invest into patient care.

A hospital has been forced to spend almost £129,000 on changing all of its 1,500 locks after a thief with “inside knowledge” stole a master key to commit break-ins.Gareth Parkin knew the Royal Derby Hospital “like the back of his hand” after working there as a gardener and maintenance worker for four years.He then “abused his knowledge” to carry out his spate of offending, Derby Crown Court prosecutor Joey Kwong said.After stealing the key during the first burglary he then used it to to access plant rooms and break into staff offices to steal handbags which belonged to doctors.Parkin, 36, of Chaddesden, Derby, used the bank cards he stole from them to buy goods to sell to fund his drug addiction.In separate offences Parkin broke in to the same convenience store in Oakwood, Derby five times and used a bank card stolen from a female pensioner aged 94.Mr Kwong told the court: “The site manager at the Royal Derby Hospital, Simon Marriott, has provided a statement for the court.”He says the master key being taken has caused a massive security risk. “All 1,500 locks have had to be changed and the current estimate as to how much it has cost is £128,749.02. “UHDB takes a zero tolerance approach to all forms of theft and are therefore pleased to see that the police’s investigations into this incident have led to a conviction.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has not been included in Portugal’s latest squad ahead of their games against Poland and Scotland later this monthThe Juventus forward was exempted from international duty last month by head coach Fernando Santos in order to be given more time to rest following his exploits at the World Cup and to settle into life at Italy.Ronaldo has made a solid start at Juventus with three goals and four assists in seven Serie A appearances. The Italian club have also registered their best ever start to a season after making it nine straight wins in all competitions.No reason has been disclosed for the absence of Ronaldo this time around by the FPF with Portugal set to face Poland on October 11 in a UEFA Nations League game before travelling to Glasgow three days later for a friendly with Scotland.Below is a list of the 25-man Portugal squad:Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.Goalkeepers – Beto (Goztepe), Cláudio Ramos (Tondela) e Rui Patrício (Wolverhampton)Defenders – Cédric Soares (Southampton), João Cancelo (Juventus), Kevin Rodrigues (Real Sociedad), Luís Neto (Zenit), Mário Rui (Nápoles), Pedro Mendes (Montpellier), Pepe (Besiktas) e Rúben Dias (Benfica)Midfielders – Bruno Fernandes (Sporting), Danilo Pereira (FC Porto), Gedson Fernandes (Benfica), Pizzi (Benfica), Renato Sanches (Bayern), Rúben Neves (Wolverhampton), Sérgio Oliveira (FC Porto) e William Carvalho (Bétis)Forwards – André Silva (Sevilla), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Bruma (RB Leipzig), Éder (Lokomotiv Moscow), Gonçalo Guedes (Valência) e Hélder Costa (Wolverhampton)
Former Tottenham Hotspur player William Gallas has mocked the club. He claims they are not big enough to attract Paris Saint-Germain player Rabiot.The North London club have been linked with signing the France international this month after he was frozen out of PSG’s first team. He had refused to sign an extension to his contract which expires in June.The French champions completed the signing of Leandro Paredes from Zenit St Petersburg this month, which further relegated Rabiot down the pecking order and Tottenham are keen to capitalise on the situation by preparing a bid for the 23-year-old.Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is believed to have spoken to Rabiot personally in a bid to convince him to move to the club, however, that approach appears to have been rebuffed.Reports suggest that if Rabiot were to move to England he’d favour a switch to Liverpool and Gallas isn’t unsurprised by the midfielder’s decision to snub Tottenham.Pochettino admits Wanyama remains in his Spurs plans Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.In an interview with Leo Vegas, Gallas said:“There is no chance that Rabiot will go to Tottenham. If he leaves Paris Saint-Germain, he will join a big club who wins trophies.”Meanwhile, Tottenham’s bid to end their trophy drought which has spanned over a decade appears to be over for another season following elimination from both the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup by Chelsea and Crystal Palace respectively.
Ebony: Erasing the Gap Between Print and Digital“As I rolled out the redesign for the print magazine, I also reimagined the entire Ebony brand,” says Ebony editor-in-chief Amy DuBois Barnett. “We began rethinking brand pillars, target demographic, the voice of the brand, aesthetic of the brand and the topics we would cover. That’s a sweeping change that was not reflected in the site at all.”After the redesigned magazine dropped in April 2011, staff began refreshing the site. Code and Theory, a design company that’s worked with The Daily Beast and Vogue, was brought on to help with the overhaul. To create a more seamless experience for Ebony readers, fonts used in-book can also be seen on the magazine’s website. Ebony’s custom CMS was built with the knowledge that consumer behavior on the Web is rapidly changing. “We realize that people aren’t coming to our website via homepages, but for individual pieces of content. Social is how we get half our traffic; people are definitely having that exchange in their own personal spaces and then coming to us,” says DuBois Barnett. Cygnus Business Media: Simplifying for the FutureIn 2011, Cygnus Business Media overhauled 31 digital properties. “We needed the ability to combine our print and online workflows into a common platform. A centralized database allows Cygnus to segment our content according to our audience needs and allows our editors to create related content from Cygnus sister sites,” says Eric Kammerzelt, VP of technology. By tapping into open source technologies like PHP, SQL, MongoDB, Apache SoIR and Varnish, the Cygnus team created a custom in-house platform. The 31 sites were migrated in rapid succession over a nine-month period. EVP of digital Tom Kohn says,“We’ve also seen advertising click-throughs increase 3x across our new sites and many have seen a 10-20 percent increase in both page views and unique visitors.” Bloomberg Businessweek: An Editor-Friendly PlatformAfter relaunching its print product two years ago, Bloomberg Businessweek recently debuted a redesigned website to reflect the changes readers are seeing in print. A CMS overhaul, upgraded workflow and refreshed home page are all part of the final product.“It was a temporal issue that we didn’t have back-end infrastructure and the CMS to support a rapid production schedule. The rendering layer also didn’t offer a place to showcase the kind of story telling our editors and designers are doing,” says Brad Rickman, product lead with Businessweek.com.The process began in early 2011, with the Businessweek team migrating Web operations to a new CMS. The system is mostly custom, but uses WordPress functions as well. After a six-month CMS transition, the next eight were spent designing the new site. “We’ve touched on everything from the database infrastructure to the application to the surface layers that we use to deliver and syndicate content,” he tells FOLIO:.
LOWELL, MA — Community Teamwork, Inc. (CTI), Greater Lowell Community Foundation and the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office are announcing a first-of-its kind partnership to provide transportation to individuals to and from Drug Court. Last year CTI received a $10,000 grant from the Greater Lowell Community Foundation to help start the pilot program, which kicked off in October, and is currently providing services to three women who are being picked up from a Lynn Sober House and transported to their court appearances. The goal is to accommodate up to 13 individuals each week.“This partnership with the office of District Attorney Marian T. Ryan, Community Teamwork and the Drug Court is the capstone of a multi-year commitment to fund programs for opioid prevention and treatment in our area and help ensure success for participants. In response to the opioid epidemic, the Community Foundation has awarded more than $160,000 in discretionary funds to support local nonprofits,” said Greater Lowell Community Foundation President and CEO Jay Linnehan.“By providing this transportation option we are filling a service gap that was prohibiting some individuals from easily accessing the courts, which is essential to successful completion of drug court,” said District Attorney Ryan. “We continue to work with the courts and our community partners to ensure the criminal justice system is not just punitive. To do this we need to think outside the box to come up with innovative solutions that will hopefully lead to a successful outcome and ultimately interrupt the often cyclical effects of substance use disorders.”The Drug Court is a special session within Massachusetts district courts where judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation officers, police and social-service workers team up to work with defendants on probation whose crimes were motivated by substance abuse. Many defendants are placed in treatment programs, which can be located far from their community and the Drug Court. These defendants often cannot truly participate in Drug Court because in the early stages their treatment program may not permit them to leave for unchaperoned travel for an extended period. In addition, various modes of transportation, such as public transportation and taxis can be cost prohibitive and often defendants can find themselves back in the neighborhoods and streets where drugs are being sold.Community Teamwork recognized that its Transportation Department, which brings children to and from school, had flexibility to use drivers and vehicles during the school day to respond to other community needs. With funding from the Greater Lowell Community Foundation, CTI is deploying drivers and vehicles to fill this need. GLCF provided a $10,000 grant to support the cost of a driver and van for Community Teamwork to facilitate this innovative approach to assist the Drug Court and its clients. Together, CTI, GLCF and the Drug Court probation officers developed a framework for what the program might look like as well as a strict Code of Conduct which the participants would have to follow in order to receive the benefit of this program.“Most often, these defendants are in need of other basic services which CTI can provide, such as housing, financial literacy, child care, etc. Through this pilot program, which can send employees from CTI to work with the probation officials and social workers, we are able to identify the various resources available to the defendants. We could not have taken this novel approach without the help of this grant from GLCF,” stated Meghan Siembor, Director of Child and Family Services.About Community TeamworkCommunity Teamwork is a catalyst for social change. Our driving mission is to help people help themselves with child care, family supports, nutrition, fuel assistance, housing, skills training, employment, financial education, and individual asset and small business development. As a Community Action Agency, a Regional Housing Agency, and a Community Development Corporation, Community Teamwork helps nearly 50,000 individuals from 63 cities and towns in northeastern Massachusetts gain greater economic independence.About the Greater Lowell Community FoundationThe Greater Lowell Community Foundation is a philanthropic organization comprised of over 350 funds, currently totaling over $35MM, which is dedicated to improving the quality of life in 20 neighboring cities and towns. The Community Foundation annually awards grants and scholarships to hundreds of worthy nonprofits and students, and is powered by the winning combination of donor-directed giving, personal attention from its staff, and an in-depth understanding of local needs. The generosity of our donors has enabled the Community Foundation to award more than $13 million to the Greater Lowell Community since 1999.(NOTE: The above press release is from the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Coffee drinkers, rejoice: Starbucks stores across the U.S. will soon be getting free Wi-Fi from Google.Google announced Wednesday that it is partnering with Starbucks to enhance the coffee-shop internet experience that many professionals now rely on. It’s promising to make the wireless internet up to 10 times faster than Starbucks customers have previously enjoyed. Google Fiber cities, such as Kansas City, Kan., will get Wi-Fi that is up to 100 times faster, the company said. Google Fiber is an ongoing initiative to build a high-speed internet network using fiber-optic technology.AT&T currently provides free Wi-Fi to Starbucks customers. But over the next 18 months, Google will replace AT&T’s service in all 7,000 company-operated Starbucks locations across America.Starbucks chief digital officer Adam Brotman said the coffee giant had not planned to drop AT&T, but was looking for ways to partner with Google and saw an opportunity to improve Wi-Fi speeds, according to a report published today by CNET.AT&T, however, said it too had proposed 10 times faster network and Wi-Fi speeds to Starbucks, according to the report.Related: Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz Says He’s Not Afraid of Dunkin’ Donuts Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 1 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

The dismissal had created a rift between the two men, who come from different parties in the ruling coalition.Representatives of Prime Minister Hamadi Jebali’s powerful Islamist Ennahda party, which dominates the assembly, argued for Nabli’s dismissal, making the vote in the assembly a foregone conclusion.Still, the heated debate over Nabli’s fate lasted for hours and in his defense, the former World Bank economist warned against an attack on the independence of the bank and Tunisia’s international credibility.“It is the credibility of Tunisia on the global stage that is at stake,” Nabli said, warning against “a danger that could sink the institutions of the state and the stability of the country.”Nabli has led the central bank since Tunisians overthrew their longtime dictator in January 2011 and was known to pursue a very independent policy from the government.He presided over a period of economic shock, including 2 percent negative growth rate last year. The economy has been reeling since tourists deserted this once-popular destination following the dictator’s ouster, and strikes have crippled the mining sector. New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Comments Share Associated PressTUNIS, Tunisia (AP) – Tunisia’s elected assembly approved on Wednesday the president’s move to fire the head of the central bank.President Moncef Marzouki fired central bank Governor Mustapha Kamel Nabli on June 27, alleging that the financial official had refused to bring the country’s monetary policies in line with its economic needs.Of the 217-person assembly, 110 voted Wednesday in favor of the dismissal and 62 against, with 10 abstentions. Men’s health affects baby’s health too Sponsored Stories Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates In recent months, however, there have been nascent signs of a recovery and in May, Nabli was named best central bank governor on the African continent by the African Banker Awards for keeping the finances together during the post-revolutionary turmoil.Nabli, however, has been criticized for not doing enough to reform the country’s ailing banking sector, which is burdened by a heavy weight of non-performing loans and poor management.He also pursued a strict monetary policy at a time when the government preferred a more pro-growth strategy to create much-needed jobs.Tunisia’s 2011 revolution, which sparked similar uprisings across the Middle East, was, in part, fueled by high unemployment rates, which a year and a half later have yet to be addressed.Nabli will be replaced by 79-year-old Chedly Ayari, who served as economy minister in the 1970s under former President Habib Bourguiba. He later headed the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.)
