He was inside an ambulance when it was hit by a shell that killed both him and the driver.“We condemn bombardments by the Syrian regime’s army that target civilians, including journalists covering the conflict, and we remind all parties to the conflict that they are required by UN Security Council Resolution 2222 of 2015 and the Geneva Conventions to guarantee journalists’ safety,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. Jumaa was trained in war reporting by the International Photo Media agency, of which Images Live is an offshoot.

It said Jumaa had gone to Al-Zebdyeh to cover the provision of emergency services to the civilian population during the bombardment by the Syrian regular army. Syria is one of the world’s deadliest countries for journalists. According to RSF’s tally, around 200 journalists and citizen-journalists have been killed since the start of the conflict in March 2011, four of them this year. Last year, RSF appealed to the UN Security Council to refer war crimes against journalists in Syria and Iraq to the International Criminal Court.

In this case, the Debt Recovery Tribunal quashed the demand notice served on the borrower under Section 13(2) of the Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, on the ground that it has not been validly issued in the name of the secured creditor (“L&T Housing Finance Ltd.”) instead the name of the company was mentioned as “L&T Finance Ltd.” This defect, according to the Tribunal was not being curable after issuance of demand notice by another group company instead of secured creditor. The Karnataka High Court upheld this order of the Debt Recovery Tribunal.In appeal filed by Secured Creditor, the Apex Court noted that the borrower (in its correspondence with the secured creditor) did not deny advancement of loan, execution of Facility Agreement, their liability and compliance of the procedure being followed by the secured creditor prescribed under the SARFAESI Act. The court also observed that the objection raised by the borrower was trivial and technical in nature and the secured creditor has complied with the procedure prescribed under the SARFAESI Act. The bench comprising Justices L. Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and Ajay Rastogi observed:”In the facts and circumstances, when the action has been taken by the competent authority as per the procedure prescribed by law and the person affected has a knowledge leaving no ambiguity or confusion in initiating proceedings under the provisions of the SARFAESI Act by the secured creditor, in our considered view, such action taken thereof cannot be held to be bad in law merely on raising a trivial objection which has no legs to stand unless the person is able to show any substantial prejudice being caused on account of the procedural lapse as prescribed under the Act or the rules framed thereunder still with a caveat that it always depends upon the facts of each case to decipher the nature of the procedural lapse being complained of and the resultant prejudiced if any, being caused and there cannot be a straitjacket formula which can be uniformly followed in all the transactions.”Allowing the appeal, the court further observed thus:The submission made by the respondent’s counsel that the notice under Section 13(2) of the Act was served by the authorised signatory of “L&T Finance Ltd.” and that was not the secured creditor in the facts of the case, in our considered view, is wholly without substance for the reason that “L&T Finance Ltd.” and “L&T Housing Finance Ltd.” are the companies who in their correspondence with all its customers use a common letterhead having their selfsame authorised signatory, as being manifest from the record and it is the seal being put at one stage by the authorised signatory due to some human error of “L&T Finance Ltd.” in place of “L&T Housing Finance Ltd.”. More so, when it is not the case of the respondents that there was any iota of confusion in their knowledge regarding the action being initiated in the instant case other than the secured creditor under the SARFAESI Act for nonfulfillment of the terms and conditions of the Facility Agreement dated 11th August, 2015 or any substantial prejudice being caused apart from the technical objection being raised while the demand notice under Section 16 13(2) was served under the SARFAESI Act or in the proceedings in furtherance thereof no interference by the High Court in its limited scope of judicial review was called for.Case: L&T HOUSING FINANCE LIMITED vs. TRISHUL DEVELOPERS [CIVIL APPEAL NO(s). 3413 OF 2020]Coram: Justices L.

Justice Moushumi Bhattacharya, after holding that the arbitral award under challenge was liable to be set aside, drew from the emphasis of the Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996 (the Act) upon the autonomy of parties to find that a different arbitrator could be appointed. Drawing from Section 43(4) of the Act which recognises that all redressal-doors were to be kept open and from Section 89 of the Civil Procedure Code, which encourages the Court to participate in the formulation of the settlement terms, the Court said, “The above provisions have been highlighted as enablers for the Court to chart the future course of action where parties consent to a particular way forward. The basic premise is that the parties who have come to the Court cannot be without a remedy when they have agreed that the matter should go before a different Arbitrator. The 1996 Act does not curtail the power of a Court to mould the relief in fit cases provided the relief is not repugnant to the law as existing on that date.” Prior to coming to this conclusion, the Court discussed how the provision in the Act for the appointment of arbitrators, Section 11, and Section 34(4) could not apply to the question before it. While Section 11 lays out a roadmap to for a Court to choose an arbitrator when the parties were in disagreement about their choice for arbitrator, Section 34(4) allows a Court to remand a matter to the same arbitrator upon an application being made by the award-holder and before the award is set aside under Section 34, to give an opportunity to the Arbitrator to eliminate the grounds for setting aside the arbitral award. Since both these provisions would not apply, the Court had to decide how a new arbitrator could be chosen to decide the matter afresh. In this backdrop, the Court adopted the principle of party autonomy. ” The Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996, ensures party autonomy at all levels right through the dispute resolution process and even to the procedure for challenge to the award. The freedom of the parties to decide on the next course of action must therefore be preserved in the facts of the present case”, the Court stated. On the facts, the Bench deemed it fit to set aside the order citing instances of bias. The petitioner, the award-debtor, had alleged that it was not allowed an opportunity to address the arbitrator. Though the award-holder averred that the award-debtor had participated in all proceedings, the Court stated that the ground on the perception of bias needed to be addressed. The Court, from material, found that the arbitrator had arbitrated other proceedings involving the award-holder and had also been engaged as a counsel as well as consultant for the respondent in the past. Pointing to Section 12(1)(a) of the Act, which requires an arbitrator to disclose in writing any direct or indirect relationship with or interest in any of the parties or the subject- matter in dispute as well as clauses 2 and 3 of the Seventh Schedule to the Act, the Court said, “Read together, the fundamental objective is to ensure that the arbitrator is impartial and independent. The facts in the present case fall directly within the safeguards introduced in Section 12 read with the Seventh Schedule and the impugned award is thus liable to be set aside on this ground alone.” Therefore, the award was set aside and a new arbitrator, retired Judge of the Calcutta High Court Justice Sahidullah Munshi, appointed.

Comments are closed. Best practice: Flexible cultureOn 6 Nov 2001 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article PersonnelToday’s monthly series reveals how managers deal with business problems toenhance performance. In this issue, Mike Eadie, co-managing director oftop-banana global, explains the benefits of flexi-culture in managing adisparate workforceTop-banana global is a leading organisation of human performanceconsultants. It delivers innovative solutions to a wide range of blue-chipclients throughout the UK. While its site-based team is small, comprising only nine people, the organisationfunctions using a team of management, training and HR consultants based indifferent locations throughout the UK and Europe. With such a substantialdistribution of resource, top-banana faces many of the same complex culturalissues that challenge much larger companies. The company is young, only two years old, but it has grown from three peopleto 300 in that time. The management decided from the outset that it wanted thebusiness to grow fast and getting the right culture was key. It was a rare opportunity to conceptualise and develop a distinctive modernculture, without first having to modify an existing one. Top-banana wanted a culture that was not only flexible internally, but thatcould be flexible with its clients as well. This strategy came from experience of other consultancies that imposeparticular models of practice on to their staff and clients. So the company knew what it didn’t want to be, the question was how tocreate the culture that it did want? How we implemented the solution In practical terms, a flexi-culture means top-banana can both work with itsclients in a non-prescriptive way, and also draw on the resource of itsconsultants to find the best ways of working. As a company, top-banana is notdriven by methods and processes, but by the need to deliver the best solutionsfor individual cases. For the consultants, this means regular meetings with top-banana to form theright strategy for each client. Consultants are encouraged to put forward theirideas. When top-banana is discussing a new client, it makes a concerted effortto ensure that it does not impose a strategy on the consultants who will bedoing the work. The most important function of meetings is to ask the opinion of theconsultants, finding out how they think a problem should be tackled and worktogether to find the solution. Crucial to the company’s philosophy is that there is no failure – onlyfeedback. Everyone will make a mistake at some point in his or her career, buttop-banana does not see this as a cause for negativity. All employees, be theyfull time staff or consultants, know that they can work confidently. Ifsomething doesn’t go as they first planned, they will receive the constructivefeedback they need to help them and improve the situation. This means that employees also have the confidence to ask for help, becausethey know it is not seen as a reflection of their ability to do the job. Most of the consultants meet at top-banana two or three times a week. For anew project, the consultants are involved from a very early stage. First, they are invited in to discuss the project. Following this, theconsultants are then able to review the material that is being proposed for theclient. This process ensures that they really understand the client’s needs andthat they are working as a seamless team when they go out to meet the client. Even though most of the staff are not full-time employees, there are regularperformance reviews. These are very open, flexible occasions with a powerfulcoaching element to close any knowledge gaps. The performance reviews are alsoa time to anchor the things that are going really well. Communication has, for obvious reasons, developed as a key part of thecultural strategy. Associate days are a great opportunity for sharing ideas,and part of the day is set aside for networking. After every meeting, the attendants’ details are shared with each other sothey can communicate outside the meetings and help each other with professionalqueries. Positive outcomes for the business Top-banana has grown 264 per cent in the last year. The established culture,although always being reviewed and updated, has gained the company a reputationas a “chameleon” within the industry, because of its ability to mergeseamlessly with the culture of each company it visits. The flexible approach has definitely worked in establishing good workingrelationships with consultants. Each consultant is recognised as an individual with individual needs andconcerns. For example, if there are a number of people working on a team, one mightprefer to be left alone to work self sufficiently, whereas somebody else mightwork better with contact from top-banana every few days. The company tries to meet these needs, giving a free hand to those who wantit, but establishing regular contact with those who work best with moresupport. As a human performance consultancy, top-banana is naturally concerned withthe human behavioural aspect of how its consultants perform. In business terms, that has been what has created the success of thecompany, but it is also the backbone of ensuring top-banana employees arefulfilling their potential and feel completely supported in their work.

There are many varieties of plum available. Some are sweet and are suitable as dessert fruits and others are tart and can be made into jams or chutneys. Either type can be used for baking. There is a variety of skin colours from green and yellow to dark red and purple.The European plum has been cultivated since ancient times, probably originating in central or south Eastern Europe. Plums have formed part of the British diet for centuries with the Victoria plum first being cultivated in the 1840s in Sussex. Nowadays, there are over 300 varieties of plum grown in Britain. Look for plump smooth plums which have a good colour.For cooking, choose ones that are nearly ripe. Plums are an obvious choice for tarts, crumbles and cobblers and can be spiced up using cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, star anise or vanilla or by adding ground nuts, such as hazelnuts, to the pastry, crumble or cobbler mix.Make a variation to a plum tart by cooking it as a plum Tarte Tatin or use plums in a traybake, for example, pressed into a sponge cake or pastry mixture and topped with a streusel and oat topping.In season: August – OctoberBy Fiona Burrell, co-author of Leiths Baking Bible, from the world-famous Leiths School of Food and Wine

After a run of dates to celebrate the release of their eponymous debut record this month, the band heads east in October, with shows in Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, and North Carolina on tap.To hear what the buzz is about, take listen to “The Mercury” on this month’s mix.Trail Mix is also excited to feature a track from Anton Fig, the long time drummer for David Letterman’s house band. On the groovy “Inside Out,” Fig is joined by longtime R&B icon Aaron Neville.This month’s mix also provided me a moment of time travel, so to speak, as Poi Dog Pondering, a band whose handbills I used to find stapled to telephone poles across campus during my undergrad years in the early 1990s, has returned with a brand new record. Perhaps “returned” is the wrong word, as they never really left. The band did slip off my radar for much of the last twenty years, though, and “All Saints Ascension,” from the band’s new record, has made for a most pleasant reunion.Another score for the September edition of Trail Mix was grabbing a track from the brand new release from Craig Finn, lead singer of The Hold Steady. Finn’s new record drops on September 11th and Trail Mix is happy to feature “Maggie, I’ve Been Searching For Our Son.”Also featured this month are Los Colognes, Kinsey, John Ellis & Double Wide, Holly Golightly, Pugwash, Mocean Worker, Slim Twig, The California Honeydrops, Barrence Whitfield & The Savages, and many, many more.The Trail Mix blog has some great stuff coming this month.

“It’s a time when we have to look at our own lives, look at the things we’ve done wrong, and things we can do better at. It’s really a season about growing closer to Christ and self-improvement,” said St. Anthony’s Pastor, Father Ken Kirkman. St. Anthony’s will be hosting fish fry dinners every Friday throughout Lent. To find more information, visit their website. In 2019, the church estimates they fed roughly 700 people. In the spirit of tradition, they are expecting to feed a whole lot more. “There’s a great community feel, people have been coming here for a long time for this kind of meal, so it’s nice to see faces return from year to year,” said Kirkman. While everyone comes for the fish, it’s also a time to reflect on the past. “It’s a lot of ‘I’m going to give up this, I’m going to give up candy.’ To me, it’s an opportunity to give back more,” said Nick Diles, an organizer for the fish fry. Also remembering Lent is a lot more than just giving something up for a few weeks. ENDICOTT (WBNG) — With Lent in full swing, Fridays are the perfect time to enjoy a plate of fried fish. At St. Anthony’s of Padua, they are cooking up enough seafood to feed hundreds. From fried haddock, to clams and shrimp, volunteers have been working hard to prepare the traditional meal.
