Gold Scandal (1999): The shocking story of how the Mafia are laundering money in Switzerland, and of how the banks are letting them get away with it. Subscribe to journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures The Mafia are ingeniously silver-plating their glimmering stash of South Africa's stolen gold. The disguise has allowed them to launder money in Swiss bank accounts. Investigations finger top Swiss Bank - UBS, and its subsidiary Metalor, who is the proven recipient of the 'odd gold'. So shouldn't Metalor have informed the authorities? Technically they've so far done nothing wrong under Swiss law. The banking empire has once again been able to profit from criminal activities. Will UBS continue to get away with its scandalous behaviour?

In Myanmar, Ban Ki-moon's Friends & Family In Mining While UN in Geneva Speaks, Press Banned
 
07:29
In Myanmar Threat of Genocide, UN's Ban Silent As His Brother & Mentor Involved in Mining There By Matthew Russell Lee, Follow Up on Exclusives UNITED NATIONS, December 16 -- The UN in Geneva on Friday issued a warning about Myanmar, video here. Meanwhile UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has a brother, Ki-ho, mining in Myanmar after being on a "UN delegation" to the country. That is, making money in a war zone off his brother's UN position. In Myanmar journalist Soe Moe Tun of Daily Eleven has been killed. At the UN, Ban Ki-moon has said nothing; his spokesmen refuse Press questions on Myanmar (and censorship). In fact, Ban is engaged in censorship at the UN, throwing the investigative Press into the street and restricting it to minders for nine months. As to Myanmar, Ban's brother Ki-moon and moonlighting mentor Han Seung-soo are both involved in mining there. To this low has Ban brought the UN. Two weeks after Inner City Press formally gave UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's spokesman Stephane Dujarric a link to an Internet page about Ban's brother Ki-ho engaged in mining in Myanmar's Shan state through South Korean firm KD Power -- as well as Bosung -- the response has been to have the page removed from the Internet. Then there's Ban's mentor Han Seung-soo, a former prime minister of South Korea who Ban has let be simultaneously a UN official, Special Adviser on Water and Disaster Risk Reduction, and on the boards of directors of Standard Chartered Bank, which has UN contracts, and Doosan Infracore, which sells equipment to the same countries where Han goes and gives his “UN” speeches. (Inner City Press asked or tried to ask Han about this, here.) But it gets worse. Now in December 2016 Doosan Infracore has publicly bragged about selling equipment for gold mining in Myanmar, at the same time as the killing of Rohingya and others there. Press release online here. So while Ban and his “Good Offices adviser” Vijay Nambiar do little to stop the slaughter in Myanmar, Ban's brother Ki-ho is mining there, and a South Korean firm Ban's moonlighting mentor Han Seung Soo is on the board of is selling gold mining equipment into Myanmar. We'll have more on this. This comes after Ban's son in law Siddharth Chatterjee, promoted by Ban without recusal to the highest UN position in Kenya, ordered an article about nepotism removed from the website. As Kenya detains and moves to deport journalist Jerome Starkey, Ban Ki-moon's son in law Chatterjee is entirely silent. Like his father in law has proved to be with the Press in New York, he is at heart a censor. But it makes a mockery of Ban Ki-moon's post Sri Lanka claims of "Rights Up Front," even as Ban angles to run for President on South Korea. In fact, in Sri Lanka Ban's son in law is implicated in presumptive war crimes, the Jaffna Hospital massacre and the crushing of civilians with tanks. And it's from him that Ban took his advice on Sri Lanka, where Ban oversaw the killing of more than 40,000 civilians. Ban is allowing those scribes who ignore this and praise him to sell access to him on December 16 for $1200 on Wall Street. We'll have more on this. Tellingly, as the UN's Resident Coordinator in Kenya, Ban's son in law Chatterjee has remained silent not only on the targeting of South Sudanese, but on the protests profiled in a study released by Article 19, here. Ban's son in law ignores Ban's supposed “Rights Up Front,” given his action in Sri Lanka (see below) and because he is entirely unaccountable: he could only be fired by Ban Ki-moon, his father in law. Nepotism is harmful. On December 3 Inner City Press reported the ever-increasingly likelihood that Ban Ki-moon's son in law Chatterjee was involved in crimes of war in Sri Lanka, which neither Ban's spokesman Stephane Dujarric nor Chatterjee himself when asked in the UN lobby was willing to answer. For some time Inner City Press has heard that Chatterjee, as part of the Indian Peace Keeping Force in Sri Lanka, was a war criminal. Inner City Press asked Ban's spokesman Dujarric if Chatterjee was involved in the Jaffna University raid, or the Jaffna hospital massacre, without answer. In the UN lobby, Chatterjee said he would answer at an “opportune time.” He has not answered. Chatterjee had his commander, Dalvir Singh, write a defense on Huffington Post and elsewhere, identifying himself as the commander of Chatterjee and of the 10th Para commandos. And that's the problem.

130104_Channel NewsAsia: Myanmar opens up to foreign investment
 
04:09
Infrastructure projects are mushrooming in Myanmar. To further improve the investment climate, its government had passed a foreign investment law removing some restrictions on foreign ownership on joint-venture companies. How far will Myanmar go to attract foreign investors? In a live interview on Channel NewsAsia, Leon Perera, Chief Executive Officer of Spire Research and Consulting, opined that some sectors were set to take off in Myanmar. These included companies involved in mining, agri-business, tourism, as well as labor-intensive manufacturing that yearned to take advantage of Myanmar's natural resources. Its government was also pushing basic infrastructure development that is "necessary for early-staged development for any economies that are opening up". These areas included infrastructure, telecommunication, and to some extent, healthcare. Perera shared that companies looking at investing in Myanmar should find local partners to handle local operations as well as enter joint ventures to mitigate risks. One problem companies would face is the employment of locals. To counter this, many companies chose to hire Myanmar nationals who are based overseas, and bring them back to Myanmar. He further commented that the biggest challenge thus far would continue to be the political and regulatory risk in Myanmar. It is recommended that companies: - Export, instead of having large domestic investments at the initial stage; - Work with local partners to mitigate the total risk; and - Take small steps in investments; so that the investment level increases slowly in line with the sales level. Perera added that one big opportunity would be the provision of financing services to foreign investments entering and setting up operations in Myanmar. With the recent Japanese-Myanmar joint venture to build an industrial park in Myanmar, more of such collaborations were expected in 2013.

🇮🇳 India: The Lost Boys | 101 East
 
25:01
India: The Lost Boys Karma,16, has worked as a miner for over a year in India's northeastern state of Meghalaya, crawling deep inside a 'rat-hole' tunnel to dig coal for seven hours a day. "Inside it is very unstable. The smell is awful," he said sitting on a pile of coal. "It is so dirty, and it is difficult to move. You breathe in the coal and the dust. People get sick like this. There is no water to drink and it is so muddy. It is not nice at all." Child rights activists have reported that there are thousands of children like Karma working in Meghalaya's coal pits, because only those who are small in size are able fit in the claustrophobic tunnels. Many of them, like Karma, are believed to be from neighbouring Indian states, or from nearby Nepal and Bangladesh. Hasina Kharbhih has been fighting the exploitation of these children for several years through her NGO Impulse. She said agents working for mine owners help traffic children to the coal-rich Jaintia Hills district of Meghalaya. They promise impoverished parents high salaries in return for their children's work, but fail to mention the dangerous conditions they will be living in. The mines often flood without warning or cave in, trapping and killing workers. There is rarely any compensation for the victims. "If we die, we die," said Ram Kumar Rai, 40, a Nepalese miner in Jaintia Hills. "They just bury us here. If we live, we suffer and we can't earn. We rot here and die. People who have money, friends or family here, their body will be sent back to Nepal. And those who don’t have anyone, they will just throw their bodies here or there." Rai was recently trapped in a tunnel after a massive rock fell on him. He had severe pain in his back and chest but received no compensation or money for medical treatment from the mine owner. "When someone dies, they hide the body so no one will know. That way the owner does not pay compensation to the family. He doesn't pay a single cent," he said. There are several national laws in India that set labour and safety standards for mines, and ban children aged under 18 from working there. But the industry in Meghalaya is openly flouting these regulations because the state government has failed to implement these laws and punish offenders. Karma has been labouring here since he was 14. His family of seven moved to Jaintia Hills a few years ago from Assam, desperately searching for work. His father had just died of tuberculosis after spending a lifetime in Meghalaya's mines. "I would like to have the chance to study but then my brother would be the only one working and we cannot afford it. And if I try to do another job, the salary would be less. So do we eat or do I go to school?" Karma said. Karma works most days, using a pick-axe to remove coal from the walls of the tunnels. "When I first went in the rat-hole, I was so scared," he said. "I thought the roof would fall on me. My knees were all scratched, but after two weeks I got used to it." "There are boys who are nine to 10 years of age who are doing this work. Younger than that they cannot do it." Despite several reports by the media and child advocates, Ampareen Lyngdoh, Meghalaya's labour minister, said she had yet to see hard evidence of young labourers. "The mining owners were telling me that a child actually cannot pull out the coal from the mine," she said from her office in the state's capital, Shillong. "You need to verify the ages of these so-called children. We are a community which is very small built. If you looked at my face you would not know how old I am. I can challenge you on that. So I might look sweet 16 but my age is something else. "Every time we rescue these so-called children, they come to a medical officer and they manage to get a certificate which says they are above such and such age." Despite her reservations, Lyngdoh said the government is drafting the state's first ever mining policy so they can register all mine owners and set standards for what they can and cannot do. Child labour is banned under these guidelines but 'rat-hole' mining is not, which is why children are employed in the first place. Child rights activist Hasina Kharbhih is sceptical about the state government's sincerity in tackling child labour. "The political will has not been there because half of the mines are also owned by a lot of political leaders. So definitely there is a vested interest of the political leaders to actually ensure that you slow down the whole process of whatever complaint is coming," she said. "These people have no rights at all. A democratic country like India will not be developing and prospering through violation of rights. It is inhumane."

Burma Places Hopes for Development in Foreign Investment   29 08 2012
 
03:31
Burma is in a good position to make big gains in Asia's fast-growing markets. But development must include all of society and be sustainable for Burma to reach its goals. That is what the Asian Development Bank said in a recent report. Cyn-Young Park is an economist with the bank. She says Burma's economic position is strengthened by its natural resources, such as oil, gas and minerals. It also has two large, growing neighbors: India and China. And the nation is young: one in four of its citizens are under the age of thirty. But Burma has a long way to go. After fifty years of military rule, it is one of Asia's poorest countries. Basic infrastructure, like roads, bridges and railways, are not developed. And only thirty percent of rural people have electricity. Burma is trying to increase foreign investment. Its civilian government is struggling to agree on a new foreign investment law. Recent versions of the law restrict foreign ownership in some industries and ban it completely in others. Sean Turnell is an economist with Australia's Macquarie University. He said the foreign investment law is now facing local disapproval, or push back. SEAN TURNELL: "There's been a bit of a push back against some of the concessions granted to foreign investors. In particular, there seems to be a walling off of some of the sectors from foreign investors." For years, Burma's military closely controlled the economy. Relatives and friends of military members received rich contracts. Now, the civilian government wants to expand services and manufacturing. It is considering giving foreign companies low tax rates so they will invest. But experts say this could be a mistake. Sean Turnell says investors are concerned about infrastructure problems, not taxes. Economists also say tax breaks for local businesses may not be the answer either. They say the lack of access to credit for farmers and businesses in Burma is a bigger problem. Reform in Burma is still in the early stages. The country recently announced new rules ending direct government censorship of news media. Reporters now must send censors their work after it is published, instead of before. Some reporters say they will wait to see if this means more freedom. Cyn-Young Park says investors too are waiting to see if reform will succeed. CYN-YOUNG PARK: "It is really going to take a while before the investors do believe that this reform is sincere and the government is not going to retrench." The foreign investment legislation could be signed into law as early as this month. And that's the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Ajaokuta Steel:  Rep. Dasuki accuses Mines and Steel Minister of Corruption
 
02:03
The House of Representatives on Thursday advised President Muhammadu Buhari to stop Mines and Steel Development Minister, Dr Kayode Fayemi, from concession moves of Ajaokuta Steel Company. The House said that the stoppage was to give time for conclusion of review of the process ordered by the chamber as part of its drive to get the company back on stream. The resolution followed a motion by Rep. Ahmed Yerima (Zamfara-APC) and 24 other lawmakers. The motion is entitled “Urgent Need to Investigate the Circumstances under Which the Federal Ministry of Mines and Steel Engaged the Globally Discredited PricewaterhouseCoopers ( PwC ) to audit Ajaokuta Steel Complex for Purposes of Concession.” Moving the motion, Yerima said he was aware that Fayemi recently announced, “and it was widely published’’, that Ajaokuta Steel Company would be given out on concession after an ongoing audit. He disclosed that audit of the company was undertaken by PricewaterhouseCoopers, which he alleged, had been discredited, “having been sanctioned in India with a two-year audit ban for infractions of over one billion dollars’’. The lawmaker said that the firm was also sanctioned in Brazil for which it paid 50 million dollars as fine, and was fined in the United Kingdom for 5.1 million pounds. He also said that the firm paid 225 million dollars and 25 million dollars, respectively, as fines to TYCO shareholders in the U.S and Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishiw for laundering money for Iran, Sudan and Myanmar. He added that it was blacklisted for roles in terrorism and human rights abuses, among other infractions and irregularities in its operations, “which has left its reputation in tatters.” Yerima expressed concern by the allegation that PricewaterhouseCoopers was informally engaged by Global Steel to assist and advise them on how to recover Ajaokuta Steel Company and National Iron Ore Company ( NIOMCO ), Itakpe, from the Federal Government. He said he was worried that the minister engaged a company whose antecedents may suggest that they were engaged to audit and prepare reports which may skew the outcome in a pre-conceived manner. According to him, it may have done to favour parties which the minister may have lined up or which may represent the interests of their former clients ( GINL ). The legislator wondered why Bureau of Public Enterprises, and Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission ( ICRC ), established by law, was not involved in the audit and concession process. He accused Fayemi of deliberate plot to concession Ajaokuta Steel Company to a pre-determined group. He decried the minister’s submission that government could no longer spend additional funds on the company “when he is already spending N2 billion for the concession process’’ and where Nigeria spent over 3.5 billion dollars on steel importation. Yerima said since NIOMCO was handed again to Global Steel in “so called modified concession for a seven-year period with an option of a further 10 years, the plant which is integrated with Ajaokuta Steel Complex has remained moribund’’. According to him, this development is an indication of likely failure of yet another concession.

BURMA: STATE LAW & ORDER RESTORATION COUNCIL NEWS BRIEFING
 
01:26
English/Nat The military regime in Burma has denied charges in a U-S human rights report that it has clamped down on pro-democracy activists and kept hundreds of them in jail. A spokesman for the regime said Saturday in Rangoon that the U-S State Department report lacked evidence in its allegations against the Southeast Asian country. They also announced the arrest of 20 more "subversives" and a continuation of the road block around pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi's house. At the monthly State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) news briefing on Saturday, Burma's military regime answered questions on the newly released human rights report by the U-S State Department. In the 1996 report on human rights, the State Department cited the clampdown on Suu Kyi and the detention of hundreds of political dissidents in Burma. This is similar to allegations made by independent human rights groups. That report was dismissed by the Burmese government with claims it was not duly substantiated. The military regime also announced the arrests of about 20 people for alleged links between an insurgent group of student exiles and "subversives" operating inside the country. Burmese authorities also said roadblocks around Aung San Suu Kyi's house will remain in place for security reasons and universities rocked by student unrest will also remained shut. Pro-democracy leader, 1991 Nobel Peace Winner Aung San Suu Kyi, who was freed from six years of house arrest in 1995, is now restricted severely by the military. She is no longer allowed to hold her weekend meetings with supporters outside her residence since last September. SOUNDBITE (English) "I believe they are using this security issue as excuse to continue to seek to keep her having contact with the public. That is those who are supporting her. Certainly there is a security...legitimate, security issue about what need to be concerned and they do have the responsibility to insure her security, but with her considerable resources, I dare to say that they have the ability to do that." SUPER CAPTION: Kent Wiedemann, American Charge D'Affaires The military has ruled Burma since 1962. The SLORC succeeded an earlier dictatorship in 1988.

ICP Asks UN of Ban Ki-moon's Brother Ki-ho's Mining in Myanmar, UN Trip, Spox Says Won't Verify
 
01:15
Ban Ki-moon's Brother Ki-ho Involved in Myanmar Greenwashing, UN "Can't Verify" Like COP22 By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive UNITED NATIONS, November 7 -- UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in late August awarded the top UN job in Kenya to his own son in law, Siddharth Chatterjee, and did not even recuse himself. On September 27, Inner City Press directly asked Chatterjee about it, on Periscope. here. Vine here. Chatterjee hardly answered the long-standing questions; nor did Ban's spokesman. Neither set up the requested interview. Likewise, Inner City Press' requests for a copy of Ban Ki-moon's October 14, 2016 speech to the Council on Korean Americans, for which $100,000 sponsorships were sought, and its questions about a UN Ethics Office opinion on that and on Ban's mentor Han Seung-soo being a UN official and on the boards of directors of Standard Chartered Bank and South Korea's Doosan have gone unanswered, even as reiterated at the November 4 UN noon briefing. Video here. On September 24, Inner City Press put these conflict of interest questions to Han Seung-soo, who left after the briefest of answers, here. Now this: Ban's brother Ban Ki-ho is involved with KD Power in mining projects in Myanmar's eastern Shan State, see below -- and in greenwashing "renewal energy" projects in Myanmar, here, consonant with Ban and his spokesman's silence on Morocco using corporate wind power projects to greenwash a land- (and map-) grab of Western Sahara for COP 22, here. On November 7, Inner City Press asked Ban's spokesman Stephane Dujarric not only about Western Sahara - even as it was again threatened - but also about Ban's brother, video here, UN transcript here: Inner City Press: I’d asked you last week about the Ethics Office, and you’d said there were too many connections in terms of Han Seung-soo and Ban Ki-ho, but I have one specific question. I see you waiting, so I’m going to… Spokesman: Go ahead. ICP Question: Okay. And the question is as follows: There’s a published article, whose link I can provide you, which says that Ban Ki-ho’s… the company Bosung is involved in magnesium mining in Eastern Shan State in Myanmar, which is a highly controversial human rights state. And the article states that Bosung went on a tour with, quote, a visiting delegation of the United Nations. So I think… you may or may not say this is a legitimate question, but if the brother of the Secretary-General is on a business delegation in Myanmar that’s described by a publication there as being with a delegation of the United Nations, I’d like to ask you, who was on that delegation? Spokesman: I have… this is the first I’ve heard of it. I have absolutely no way to verify the information you’ve shared. Okay there: Ban's brother Ki-ho is vice president of electric equipment firm Bosung (a/k/a Bo Sung), which has been on Myanmar tours with (unnamed) UN officials.

rohingya muslims in myanmar|Rohigya Muslims Crisis | Burma Muslims #burma #muslims #Rohingyas #mayanmar Rohingyas in Myanmar are victims of sate sponsored persecution. And no one is there to listen their plight. Rohingyas are stateless Indo-Aryan people from Rakhine state, Myanmar. There were an estimated 1 million Rohingyas living in Myanmar before the 2016–17 crisis and majority of them were Muslims. The Rohingyas population are denied citizenship under the 1982 Myanmar nationality law. Because Myanmar law does not recognize the ethnic minority as one of the eight "national races". Which means they can’t have any access to education, medical or employment opportunities. But the recent crackdown on them was most brutal. Myanmar military launched a massive attack on their villages accusing them of terrorism And in first four weeks over 1000 were killed Approximately half a million people fled to Bangladesh to save their lives facing perilous journey through fishing boats. But land mines on the border were awaiting them where many lost their limbs. Human rights experts called recent crises as ethnic cleansing of Rohingyas by Myanmar’s government and Buddhist terror. So Rohingyas need us and we should be there to help them. Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/inshortyoutube/

LAO FOOD, STREET FOOD IN LAOS, ASIAN STREET FOOD, VIENTIANE, LAOS TRAVEL, Laos, (Listeni/ˈlɑːoʊs/,[7] /ˈlaʊs/, /ˈlɑːɒs/, or /ˈleɪɒs/;[8][9] Lao: ລາວ, Lao pronunciation: [láːw], Lāo) officially the Lao People's Democratic Republic, (Lao: ສາທາລະນະລັດ ປະຊາທິປະໄຕ ປະຊາຊົນລາວ, Sathalanalat Paxathipatai Paxaxon Lao) or commonly referred to its colloquial name of Muang Lao (Lao: ເມືອງລາວ, Muang Lao) is a landlocked country in the heart of the Indochinese peninsula of Mainland Southeast Asia, bordered by Myanmar (Burma) and China to the northwest, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the southwest, and Thailand to the west and southwest.[10] Present day Laos traces its historic and cultural identity to the kingdom of Lan Xang Hom Khao (Kingdom of a Million Elephants Under the White Parasol), which existed for four centuries as one of the largest kingdoms in Southeast Asia.[11] Due to Lan Xang's central geographical location in Southeast Asia, the kingdom was able to become a popular hub for overland trade, becoming wealthy economically as well as culturally.[11] After a period of internal conflict, Lan Xang broke off into three separate kingdoms— Luang Phabang, Vientiane and Champasak. In 1893, it became a French protectorate, with the three territories uniting to form what is now known as the country of Laos. It briefly gained independence in 1945 after Japanese occupation, but returned to French rule until it was granted autonomy in 1949. Laos became independent in 1953, with a constitutional monarchy under Sisavang Vong. Shortly after independence, a long civil war ended the monarchy, when the Communist Pathet Lao movement came to power in 1975. Laos is a one-party socialist republic. It espouses Marxism and is governed by the Lao People's Revolutionary Party, in which the party leadership is dominated by military figures. The Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the Vietnam People's Army continue to have significant influence in Laos. The capital city is Vientiane. Other large cities include Luang Prabang, Savannakhet, and Pakse. The official language is Lao. Laos is a multi-ethnic country with the politically and culturally dominant Lao people making up approximately 60 percent of the population, mostly in the lowlands. Mon-Khmer groups, the Hmong, and other indigenous hill tribes, accounting for 40 percent of the population, live in the foothills and mountains. Laos' ambitious strategies for development are based on generating electricity from its rivers and selling the power to its neighbors, namely Thailand, China, and Vietnam, as well as its initiative to become a 'land-linked' nation, shown by the planning of four new railways connecting Laos to those same countries.[12] This, along with growth of the mining sector, Laos has been referred to as one of East Asia and Pacific's fastest growing economies by the World Bank, with annual GDP growth averaging 7% for the past decade.[13][14] It is a member of the Asia-Pacific Trade Agreement (APTA), Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), East Asia Summit and La Francophonie. Laos applied for membership of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 1997; on 2 February 2013, it was granted full membership.[15] L

ICP Asks UN About Ban Ki-moon's Bro Ki-ho, Mining in Myanmar, Tour with “UN Delegation"
 
02:13
On Ban Ki-moon's Mining Brother Ki-ho With UN Delegation In Myanmar, UN Won't Answer ICP, Conflict By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive UNITED NATIONS, November 18 -- UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in late August awarded the top UN job in Kenya to his own son in law, Siddharth Chatterjee, and did not even recuse himself. On September 27, Inner City Press directly asked Chatterjee about it, on Periscope. here. Vine here. Chatterjee hardly answered the long-standing questions; nor did Ban's spokesman. Neither set up the requested interview. Likewise, Inner City Press' requests for a copy of Ban Ki-moon's October 14, 2016 speech to the Council on Korean Americans, for which $100,000 sponsorships were sought, and its questions about a UN Ethics Office opinion on that and on Ban's mentor Han Seung-soo being a UN official and on the boards of directors of Standard Chartered Bank and South Korea's Doosan have gone unanswered, even as reiterated at the November 4 UN noon briefing. Video here. On September 24, Inner City Press put these conflict of interest questions to Han Seung-soo, who left after the briefest of answers, here. Ban's brother Ban Ki-ho is involved with KD Power in mining projects in Myanmar's eastern Shan State, see below -- and in greenwashing "renewal energy" projects in Myanmar, here, consonant with Ban and his spokesman's silence on Morocco using corporate wind power projects to greenwash a land- (and map-) grab of Western Sahara for COP 22, here. On November 18, Inner City Press asked Ban Ki-moon's deputy spokesman Farhan Haq, video here Nine days before, Inner City Press sent Dujarric and others this, of which Dujarric in the hallway confirmed receipt: Hello. I am sending three links regarding Ban Ki-moon's brother Ki-ho (through Bosung and KD Power) doing mining in Myanmar and touring with a UN delegation. 1) http://www.brighttime.com.mm/bright-time-resources/2-uncategorised.html "Memorandum of Understanding with KD Power of South Korea, which is managed by Mr. Ban Ki-Ho, brother of UN Secretary-General Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, for the exploration of Magnesium as well as cooperation in power sector in the eastern Shan State of Myanmar. " 2) " Bosung Power Technology Co., a power supply material manufacturer where Ban’s younger brother Ki-ho is a vice president" https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-05-22/un-chief-ban-nudged-toward-s-korea-presidency-by-polls-legend 2) http://www.industry.gov.mm/my/events/75 Google-translated: "Bo Sung Powertec Co., Ltd, BUYANG INDUSTRIAL Co., Ltd, Germany Recycle Engineering Co., Ltd and visiting delegations from the United Nations" Who was on the UN delegation? Was any UN Ethics office opinion sought for Ban Ki-ho's role in a UN delegation in a war-torn country in which he does / gets business? Why / how is this appropriate?

Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) on Save Irrawaddy River
 
06:34
Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) strongly denounced the Irresponsible USDP Regime Failing to Save River Ayeyarwaddy 12 September 2011 Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) strongly denounced the USDP's Electric Power Minister U Zaw Min's irresponsible comment saying there is no plan to stop building the Ayeyarwaddy Dam instead the government is pledged to finish building it in the wake of widespread objections. People of Burma including democracy leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi are calling for to review the Ayeyarwaddy Dam project due to the averse affect it will cause on Burma's environment, on Burma's bio-diversity and on Burma's future. Lo Hsing Han and his son Steven Law (a) Tun Myint Naing run Asia World Ltd which currently has contracts to build MyitSone Dam on the Ayeyarwaddy River north of Myitgyinar. Ten more companies are owned under the group in Singapore by Law's wife, Cecilia Ng. The Myitsone Dam site is located just 2 miles below the confluence and about 24 miles away from Myitkyina, the capital of Kachin State. The length of the dam is about 499 ft (152 m) and the height is about 499 ft, equivalent to the height of a 50-story building. The surface area of the reservoir is about 295.8 sq mi (766 sq km), about the size of New York City (301 sq mi). A maximum water depth of the reservoir will be about 950 ft (290 m), approximately the height of a 66-story building. The estimated cost of the Myitsone Dam construction project is about US $3.6 billion. The total cost for construction of the seven dams and hydroelectric development projects is about US $20 billion. The major construction contractor from the Chinese side is the China Gezhouba Group Corporation (CCGC), and from the Burmese regime side is Asia World Company. It is strongly believed that Lo Hsing Han's business empire was originally built on narcotic-drug trafficking. Starting as a local militia leader in the northern Kokang region in 1960, Lo Hsing Han was dubbed the "King of Opium" by US drug enforcement authorities in the 1970s because of large amount of heroin his alleged networks were sending through Thailand. By 1994, his organization was widely considered among the most heavily armed drug trafficking organizations in Southeast Asia. Golden Aaron, an Asia World subsidiary, has been linked to China. Steven Law (a) Tun Myint Naing is the managing director of Golden Aaron, which has now been linked to CNOOC. Both Lo Hsing Han and Steven Law have been on a US visa blacklist since 1996 for suspected drug trafficking activities. In February 2008, they were also put on the Treasury Department's sanctions list, along with Asia World Company and subsidiaries Asia World Co Ltd, Asia World Port Management, Asia World Industries Ltd and Asia World Light Ltd for their financial connections to the regime. Asia World Ltd, Burma's biggest and most diversified conglomerate with interests in industrial development, construction, transportation, import-export and a chain of local supermarkets. It is believed that he also controls several gold mines in Kachin State. Tun Myint Naing also owns the Magwe United Football Club playing in the Myanmar National League (MNL). Saving River Ayeyarwaddy is saving Burma and it is duties of all the people of Burma as well as the duties of man-kind to safe-guard the future of the world we are living in. We also call for China Gezhouba Group Corporation (CCGC) and China's National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to halt the ties with accused drug kin-pin of Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) again calling for Burmese and Chinese regimes to review building Myit-Sone dam in Burma. Addition, Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) call for all the people of Burma and justice loving people around the world to boycott Lo Hsing Han and his son Steven Law (a) Tun Myint Naing and Law's wife Cecilia Ng's Companies including Asia World Ltd, Golden Aaron, and Magwe United Football Club.

What Are Bath Salts? (2012)

It's taken his soul", Tiffany Russell says as she watches shocking footage of her 24-year-old son Skyler, a bath salts addict, on a trip. Unable to help her son herself, Tiffany feels the government have failed him by pondering for too long over what to do about the drug. "When they finally did something, it's too late for the thousands who have been affected." But it's a battle that's far more complex, explains Drug Enforcement officer Jim Burns. "New York State passed a bath salts law a year ago. No sooner had they passed it than some enterprising chemist somewhere tweaked the chemical formula. Now it's no longer the substance that was banned in the state law. So we're back to square one."

Kyrgyzstan declares state of emergency

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Kyrgyzstan declared a state of emergency after bloody clashes between security forces and protesters over the arrests of dozens of demonstrators who cut off power to a Canadian-owned gold mine they want nationalised. Prosecutors said that 92 people were arrested when security forces moved in to disperse the protest over the Kumtor mine, retake control of an electrical substation and dismantle their tents. But this in turn sparked a new protest Friday morning as thousands of locals began a march to call for the release of those detained, clashing with security forces who fired tear gas and rubber bullets.

The Brazilian government has established partnerships with more than 28 African countries on trade and development. Brazilian companies are now investing in many African countries in key areas such as energy, infrastructure and agriculture. Brazil and Mozambique for example are now implementing many joint projects in agriculture and health. With the help of Brazil new generic drugs are now being manufactured in Mozambique to treat HIV/AIDS and other illnesses. Private Brazilian companies are also active in partnerships relating to the energy, agricultural and mining sectors. Brazil is one of Africa's richest developing country partners in many key industries and sectors as well as the knowledge, experience and innovation sectors. As Africa has been growing recently it also presents a large and growing market for Brazilian companies. THE WORLD BANK ...

Trade, Tourism and Investment Sanction Must Be Removed
 
03:26
Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) www.bdcburma.org encourages international community to engage more with Burma in order to balance China's influence over Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) truly believes that more engagement would effectively promote political, civil, democratic and economic freedom in Burma. Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has already invited investment and tourism in Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) would like to echo our leader's call for investment and tourism in Burma. Please do invest in Burma and please do visit Burma. Burma is facing challenges ahead which we must address sensibly, wisely and realistically for her quest for democracy. Burma must resolve poverty, corruptions, poor technology, and lack of expertise, poor banking, unemployment and inflation and fiscal and monetary policies. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for investment in Burma which will significantly boost the welfare of the Burmese people. By removing investment and trade sanction on Burma, Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) truly believes that Burmese citizens will have the benefits of increased investment which can bring technology, knowledge and democratic values since outside investment strengthens private institutions. At the same time, Burma must work hard to end the economics monopoly and cronyism in Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) welcomes tourists visiting Burma so as to promote ordinary Burmese people engaging with people from around the world. Burma needs technology and financial assistance from international community to help rebuilding the nation after five decades of isolation and economics mismanagement. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) is very concerned that due to the sanction imposed on Burma as the subsequence crucial international aid are stopped delivering in Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for international community to provide more humanitarian assistance and development aid inside Burma and since in the past most of the US government's aid programme went to organisations based in Thailand. If there are obstacles blocking aids going inside Burma then we must remove them immediately since we don't want to hurt the livelihood of the ordinary people of Burma whom are suffering from reputation risk. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) opposes anything hurting people. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) is very sad to learn that Burma receives less foreign aid money than any country in Southeast Asia because of the sanction imposed on Burma. For example, in 2009-10 Burma receives only $US7.2 per capita of Overseas Development Assistance (ODA) while neighbouring Laos received $US64.4. Particularly international community must remove all sanctions that block technical assistance in health and social welfare. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) is very shocked to learn that restrictions imposed by western countries prohibit assistance from reaching any member of the government because of which prohibit providing any assistance such as even providing training to teachers and health workers. In particular, Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for more assistance and international investment in education, social and health care in Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) truly believes that Burmese people will be very happy if International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank (WB) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) could help tackling poverty in Burma since Burma needs financial and technological assistance from international community so as to address the immediate needs of the people and in the process of rebuilding Burma. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) truly believes that Burma is on the right track for democratic change. In order to help reliving the suffering of the people of Burma, we must have common position amongst all parties concerned by putting national interest first. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC) calls for international community to remove TOURISM, TRADE and INVESTMENT sanction on Burma in order to alleviate suffering of Burmese people who are suffering from REPUTATION RISK and to encourage Burmese government's reform process which had already started.

Ajaokuta Steel Controversy: Buhari is innocent, Kayode Fayemi, betraying Nigerians ― Rep Kamale
 
05:20
The House of Representatives on Thursday advised President Muhammadu Buhari to stop Mines and Steel Development Minister, Dr Kayode Fayemi, from concession moves of Ajaokuta Steel Company. The House said that the stoppage was to give time for conclusion of review of the process ordered by the chamber as part of its drive to get the company back on stream. The resolution followed a motion by Rep. Ahmed Yerima (Zamfara-APC) and 24 other lawmakers. The motion is entitled “Urgent Need to Investigate the Circumstances under Which the Federal Ministry of Mines and Steel Engaged the Globally Discredited PricewaterhouseCoopers ( PwC ) to audit Ajaokuta Steel Complex for Purposes of Concession.” Moving the motion, Yerima said he was aware that Fayemi recently announced, “and it was widely published’’, that Ajaokuta Steel Company would be given out on concession after an ongoing audit. He disclosed that audit of the company was undertaken by PricewaterhouseCoopers, which he alleged, had been discredited, “having been sanctioned in India with a two-year audit ban for infractions of over one billion dollars’’. The lawmaker said that the firm was also sanctioned in Brazil for which it paid 50 million dollars as fine, and was fined in the United Kingdom for 5.1 million pounds. He also said that the firm paid 225 million dollars and 25 million dollars, respectively, as fines to TYCO shareholders in the U.S and Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishiw for laundering money for Iran, Sudan and Myanmar. He added that it was blacklisted for roles in terrorism and human rights abuses, among other infractions and irregularities in its operations, “which has left its reputation in tatters.” Yerima expressed concern by the allegation that PricewaterhouseCoopers was informally engaged by Global Steel to assist and advise them on how to recover Ajaokuta Steel Company and National Iron Ore Company ( NIOMCO ), Itakpe, from the Federal Government. He said he was worried that the minister engaged a company whose antecedents may suggest that they were engaged to audit and prepare reports which may skew the outcome in a pre-conceived manner. According to him, it may have done to favour parties which the minister may have lined up or which may represent the interests of their former clients ( GINL ). The legislator wondered why Bureau of Public Enterprises, and Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission ( ICRC ), established by law, was not involved in the audit and concession process. He accused Fayemi of deliberate plot to concession Ajaokuta Steel Company to a pre-determined group. He decried the minister’s submission that government could no longer spend additional funds on the company “when he is already spending N2 billion for the concession process’’ and where Nigeria spent over 3.5 billion dollars on steel importation. Yerima said since NIOMCO was handed again to Global Steel in “so called modified concession for a seven-year period with an option of a further 10 years, the plant which is integrated with Ajaokuta Steel Complex has remained moribund’’. According to him, this development is an indication of likely failure of yet another concession.

Doing business in Myanmar Part 1 - What you need to know as an entrepreneur from Singapore
 
14:06
Go to Part 2 video at http://youtu.be/bLCMJ8Y6IhA http://consult-myanmar.com The title for this PowerPoint presentation was based on the remit chosen by the National University of Singapore MBA Study Group a month before they visited my office in Yangon on 24th September 2013. As I am an alumnus of NUS the business school contacted me a month before their visit to Yangon. I originally wanted to put the presentation on Slideshare -- however when I looked at the presentation 60% of the information are in the speaker's note and if you view the presentation as a slideshow alone it does not really make sense. As many people are now using smart phone and tablet to surf the net I decided to spend a few days to put the PowerPoint presentation as a YouTube video with proper voice over and subtitle so you can view it from any platform without having to read the speaker's note simultaneously. The video is divided into 2 parts: Part 1: http://youtu.be/pCvYiQYDHcE 1. Economic history of Myanmar -- how Myanmar ended up where they are, as one of the poorest country in Asia despite its rich natural resources. 2. A simple story of why it is more profitable to invest in Myanmar than in Singapore. Caveat: You need to have strong stomach for risk if you want to invest in an emerging market like Myanmar. 3. As an entrepreneur: a. Is inefficiency good or bad? b. Is the continuing US financial sanction good or bad? Part 2: http://youtu.be/bLCMJ8Y6IhA 4. What are the opportunities by industry in Myanmar? 5. Is your organization suffering from Giganitis? 6. Why emerging markets favour entrepreneurs. 7. Low entry barrier for entrepreneur in Myanmar versus China and India 8. Understand the role of the Central and State government. 9. What is the role of the JV Partner in Myanmar. 10. The importance of training in creating the right culture in you company. 11. How to operate in a cash based society like Myanmar. 12. Should you wait for after the 2015 election before entering the Myanmar market? You can download the MP4 video and PDF transcript of the presentation at http://consult-myanmar.com/doing-busi...
