Minister Khalfi Accuses 2M Radio Show Host of Defending Nabil Ayouch

Rabat- Another chapter in the ongoing war between the Ministry of Communication and state-owned TV channel 2M.Minister of Communication Mustapha El Khalfi has accused a 2M Radio show host of being aligned to Nabil Ayouch, the director of controversial film “Much Loved”.2M journalist Younes Lazrak devoted Thursday’s episode of his radio show “OuiMaisNon” to discuss the controversy surrounding Nabil Ayouch’s controversial film on prostitution “Much Loved” and the decision to ban the film by the Ministry of Communication. To this purpose, Lazrak invited five guests, including a Ministry’s representative.However, Mustapha El Khalfi accused Lazrak of lacking professionalism, saying the radio host allocated only 20 per cent of the time to the Ministry’s representative.He added that the remaining 80 per cent was allocated to the four guests who were defending Nabil Ayouch’s film against the Ministry’s ban.Speaking during a lecture organized by the Multidisciplinary Faculty in Martil, the PJD-affiliated Minister said there was a conflict of interests since Lazrak also hosts a television show produced by Nabil Ayouch’s production company Ali n’ Production.Morocco World News.

World Bank Moroccan Schools Rely on Passive Learning Violent Discipline

Rabat- The report, “Expectations and Aspirations: A new framework for education,” suggests that teaching methods throughout the MENA region are highly focused on memorization and do not provide much scope for students to develop their imagination and critical thinking skills.Morocco and other MENA countries’ curricula rely heavily on rote learning, memorization, and repetition. According to the research, 60 percent of  eighth-grade students in Morocco are required to memorize facts and mathematics and science rules, and the “procedures” of most lessons, if not all.The rate—which also applies for Oman, Lebanon, Jordan, and Kuwait—is “almost twice the international average,” states the report. The report gives the example of Canada and New Zealand, emphasizing that only 10 percent of their eighth-graders are required to memorize during mathematic lessons.In Sweden and the United States, 11 percent are required to memorize, and 14 percent are in Ireland and Singapore. The study reasons that when students are only required to memorize rules, procedures, and facts, they become unable to exhibit a basic understanding of day-to-day applications. The hypothesis is tangible in Morocco. Fewer than half of fourth-graders could read a basic graph in the North African country, according to the 2015 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Egypt and Saudi Arabia are not any different. Only 55 percent of Egyptian and Saudi eighth-graders could interpret a basic pictogram.MENA students have some of the lowest results in student assessments globally. Only 41 percent of fourth and eighth graders reached the “low” international benchmarks of TIMSS in mathematics in 2015, and only 35 percent of fourth-graders and 47 percent of eighth graders reached the “low” international benchmark in  science.As for reading literacy, only 36 percent of fourth-graders reached the “low” international benchmark.Students in the MENA countries are in dire need of their teachers’ guidance to develop flexible knowledge and skills “that can facilitate independent, complex cognitive work.” The World Bank argues that there should be a balance between rote memorization and high-level problem-solving. The report states that “the region has great expectations and aspirations. Unleashing the potential of education is attainable, but it will take a commitment by all to make education not only a national priority but also a national emergency.”The substantial overlap in pedagogical methods and labor market issues, says the report, can be explained by “post independence trajectories.”Morocco, colonized by France for 44 years until 1956, has faced challenges concerning “education quality and learning outcomes” like other MENA countries.“However, the power of education to build human capital and to create change depends on its quality, its access to complementary economic and social environments, and its ability to leverage technology smartly,” the World Bank states.Read Also: Morocco to Receive US Military Software to Improve Army ServicesDiscipline in Morocco and other MENA countries Another issue that hinders the pedagogical progress in MENA countries, according to the report, is violent discipline.The World Bank recognizes that some degree of discipline is necessary, however, violent discipline negatively impacts the psychological health of students and hampers their performance at school.Violent discipline affects “children’s physical, psychological, and social development and hampers their learning and school performance, ultimately reducing human capital development,” said UNICEF.Unfortunately, violent discipline is prevalent in schools in the MENA region. UNICEF’s 2013 study of 50 countries suggests that MENA countries have the highest rate of violence targeting children aged 2 to 14Some 79 to 95 percent of young students in Yemen, the West Bank and Gaza, Tunisia, Iraq, Algeria, Syria (pre-conflict), and Morocco are violently disciplined.Absenteeism, ‘a chronic problem in MENA’Teacher absenteeism, when teachers stay home from school without good reasons plague Morocco and the rest of the MENA region.The World Bank considers this a “chronic problem” that hampers the school systems.  Among MENA countries participating in TIMSS 2015, 16 percent of eighth graders were enrolled in schools whose teachers were absent regularly.School principals reported that teacher absenteeism is a “serious problem.” The problem is more acute in Morocco, affecting 28 percent of students, the report said.Morocco is followed by Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Egypt. Lack of teachers and financial support is also an issue in Morocco. Morocco’s Court of Auditors identified similar serious deficiencies in both public and private schools in August.The court noted that some schools have multiple grade levels in one class.Minister of National Education, Vocational Training, and Scientific Research Said Amzazi pledged in July that his ministry would launch a national program of generalization and reform of pre-school education in Morocco. The program, including the 2018-2019 academic year, was to start on July 18 and run to 2028.Reforming preschool practices is a first step in recognizing the concerns in primary and secondary school. read more

Service and Sacrifice Mongolia continues to strengthen its contribution to UN peacekeeping

UN Photo/Albert González FarranA nurse from the Mongolian Hospital Unit in Darfur treats a mother and child (10 December 2012). Peacekeeping is a dangerous business. UN personnel can sustain injuries in the line of duty, the workplace or in vehicular accidents, and harsh conditions and disease can also take its toll. Peacekeeping operations deploy medical contingents contributed by Member States to ensure that UN personnel – troops, police and civilians – receive the best medical care possible.In Kabkabiya in the Darfur region of Sudan, Mongolia has for several years provided a Level Two Hospital to address this need. The unit consists of 68 personnel, 34 men and 34 women, and is responsible for providing UN personnel with health care, emergency resuscitation and stabilization, life and limb-saving surgical interventions, basic dental care and facilitation of casualty evacuation for more severe cases.  It also administered vaccinations and other prophylaxis measures.  In addition to serving UN staff, the Mongolian hospital unit treated more than 10,000 people from the local communities.Mongolian troops serve as military observers in Western Sahara UN Photo/Billy IsaacA Mongolian peacekeeper provides security as the World Food Programme drops food in Bentiu, South Sudan (21 October 2015). In recent years, the people of South Sudan have simultaneously endured civil war and high levels of food insecurity. Among their tasks, Mongolian peacekeepers provide security as the UN World Food Programme (WFP) drops much-needed food in Bentiu, South Sudan.  Their responsibilities also include protecting civilians, securing UN bases, carrying out patrols, escorting convoys, supporting search operations carried out by UN Police, as well as protecting fellow peacekeepers as they carry out road maintenance and demining operations.Mongolian peacekeepers awarded UN Medal in South Sudan UN Photo/Martine PerretPeacekeepers with the UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) consult a map as they drive through vast desert areas in Smara, Western Sahara. Since 2003, more than 14,000 Mongolian peacekeepers have served in UN missions around the world. Today, Mongolia deploys nearly 900 peacekeepers to five UN peacekeeping operations – in South Sudan, Abyei, Darfur, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Western Sahara.  The Mongolian contribution consists of troops, police and unarmed military observers. A key task of the UN Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) is monitoring the ceasefire observed by the parties since September 1991 – carried out by some 200 military observers. Seen here, a Mongolian military observer serving with MINURSO, together with colleagues from Ghana, France and Bangladesh, check a map while carrying out an observation patrol in the vast area in Smara.Mongolian peacekeepers provide crucial security support for vital airdrop of food in South Sudan UN Photo/Christopher HerwigMongolian peacekeepers serving in a guard unit assigned to protect the Special Court for Sierra Leone perform a tactical exercise (26 November 2008). Ensuring justice is a key element of the work of the United Nations, including its peacekeeping operations.  The Special Court for Sierra Leone was set up by the Government and the UN to “prosecute persons who bear the greatest responsibility for serious violations of international humanitarian law and Sierra Leonean law” during the country’s civil war (1991-2002).When the UN peacekeeping mission in Sierra Leone closed, the Security Council mandated the UN mission in neighbouring Liberia (UNMIL) to provide security to the detainees and the Court. Mongolia accepted the responsibility and deployed its personnel in early 2006.  The well-trained and equipped Mongolian Guard Unit performed to the highest standards and completed its mission years ago. In 2006, Mongolia made its first sizeable contribution to UN peacekeeping when it deployed 250 military personnel to the UN Mission in Liberia, a West African country that was recovering from a violent civil war.  Six years later, Mongolia undertook it largest deployment to date when it sent a full battalion of 850 troops to the UN Mission in South Sudan, where they continue to play an important role in protecting civilians.Throughout its decade-and-a-half history in UN peacekeeping, Mongolian contributions to UN peacekeeping have been notable for their high standards of training and for the high number of women they deploy.Mongolia has risen to become the 27th largest contributor to UN peacekeeping, with nearly 900 military and police personnel deployed in five operations. But they have not forgotten their first mission–they continue to send a handful of military observers to Western Sahara.Mongolian Hospital Unit in Darfur treats UN personnel and reaches out to local community UN Photo/Amanda VoisardThe head of the UN Mission in South Sudan, David Shearer, awards the UN Medal to Mongolian peacekeepers (8 May 2017). In May 2017, more than 850 Mongolian peacekeepers were awarded the United Nations Medal for their commitment and service to the UN and the people of South Sudan during a ceremony in Bentiu.  In awarding the medals, the Head of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), David Shearer, praised the Mongolian troops for their “robust, calm and appropriate” approach to peacekeeping. He said the courage and determination they had shown set a high standard for all peacekeeping forces to emulate.“The Mongolian peacekeepers have led the way in terms of robustness which is an approach that we would like to see more of in our peacekeeping efforts in South Sudan,” Mr. Shearer added.Mongolian peacekeepers provide security at Special Court in Sierra Leone read more

Ohio State mens lacrosse shuts out Michigan in 2nd half beat Wolverines

Ohio State freshman midfielder Jake Withers goes down to the ground toward a loose ball while being defended by Michigan sophomore midfielder Chase Brown in the second quarter of OSU men’s lacrosse 15-6 victory April 12 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Dan Hope / Lantern photographerFor the briefest of moments, it seemed like the Michigan Wolverines were going to come to Ohio Stadium and pull an upset against the Ohio State men’s lacrosse team.A three-goal deficit early in the second quarter seemed to be a bad omen for the Buckeyes, who started the year winning one of their first five games.But OSU (5-6, 2-0) held Michigan (4-9, 1-3) scoreless in the second half, and pulled away in front of a season-high crowd of 17,641 to earn a 15-6 win Saturday in Ohio Stadium.OSU coach Nick Myers said the game presented his team with the opportunity to get a huge win in front of a larger than usual crowd due to the Spring Game.“For us, keeping it under the right microscope, it’s a league win and second to that, it’s a chance in front of a really special crowd,” Myers said. “I know our men understand the responsibility of what it means to put on that Block ‘O.’ We were excited about coming out here and defending it against one of our rivals.”Winners of four of their last five, the Buckeyes fell behind early after the Wolverines jumped out to a 5-2 lead less than two minutes into the second quarter.However, led by junior midfielder Jesse King, OSU battled back to even the score at six heading into halftime. King, who finished the game with five goals and an assist, now has 21 points in his last three games.King said the Buckeyes started poor, but found a way to turn things around and calm the game down.“We started rushing things a little bit on our offense, we were getting a little tedious and playing a little fast,” King said. “We just slowed things down and made it really simple.”Senior defenseman Joe Meurer said the job the offense did maintaining possession was a big reason why the defense held Michigan without a goal for the last 35:24 of the game.“Usually the best defense is an offense,” Meurer said. “I don’t think we lost more than three faceoffs in the second half, so that is a tribute to the hard work that the faceoff guys are putting in and the offense. They’ve been playing extremely well lately, and they kept the ball down in their end so we didn’t have to play.”King said freshman midfielder Jake Withers, who won 16 of 25 faceoffs during the game, has been improving week in and week out, and he expects great things to come.“Jake’s a really talented player,” King said. “A freshman coming in and he’s one of the guys that is stepping up really big for us. I can’t wait to see what else comes from him.”Offensively, the Buckeyes had five players register three or more points, including sophomore attackman Ryan Hunter, who scored a career-high four goals in his second career start.Defensively, OSU got another stellar outing from senior goaltender Scott Spencer, who made nine saves to improve to 3-1 on the season in replacement of injured senior goaltender Greg Dutton.Up next, OSU is set to play its final home game of the regular season against Air Force, April 19 at 1 p.m.Meurer said despite the win today, the Buckeyes need to stay the course and focus if they want to finish the season with a chance to make their second consecutive postseason appearance.“It’s huge but at the same time we can’t get complacent,” Meurer said. “We know there is still a long road ahead for us and we are going to continue to work hard and get better every day.” read more

Space gray iPad 5 photos leak revealing silver trim and updated design

first_imgApple’s iPad event is still a couple of weeks away, but don’t let that stop you from seeing how the Cupertino company has updated the design of their tablet line.The launch of the iPad mini last year showed off Apple’s new approach to tablets. The thin bezels and the lack of tapered edges helped the tiny tablet stand out on shelves everywhere, so much so that it has been widely anticipated that Apple would follow suit this year with their full-sized iPad 5.With the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S using angular designs that are more iPad mini than iPad 4, it seems like we have a pretty good idea what to expect from the 2013 iPad. Images that have leaked over the past few weeks have only served to reinforce this thinking. Additionally, Apple’s new color scheme from the iPhone 5S was expected to make an appearance, returning Apple’s design experience to a single, cohesive thought.We’ve seen our share of leaked parts for the next generation of Apple tablets, but now it looks like we have some high res photos of everything but the silicon to make it a finished product.There’s no champagne gold to be found in these photos, but Apple’s new silver and space gray colors are seen here with silver trim along the front facing edge of the device. Coupled with the trim for the TouchID home button, there’s a pair of nice clean lines to break up the spans of anodized aluminum. What we’re seeing here is the full sized tablet, but there’s no way the iPad mini 2 won’t bear the same designs. There’s not a whole lot left for Apple to announce for this new hardware, aside from pricing and availability. Unfortunately, we’ll be waiting until the Apple event itself to get an official comment on that.last_img read more

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Young Link

first_imgWho Are They?Part of what made The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time so memorable was its focus on “time.” Before being hurled into the future to play as adult Link, player spent the first dungeons as the more innocent Young Link, just a little elf boy with a sword hanging out in the forest. This same Young Link, after regaining his childhood in one of the three split timelines, also starred in the much darker and weirder Majora’s Mask.Smash HistoryAs far as the secret clone characters in Super Smash Bros. Melee go, at least Young Link’s clone status is right in his name. So both of Link’s N64 Ocarina forms were represented. Many interpreted the appearance of cel-shaded Wind Waker “Toon Link” in later Smash Bros. games to be the next evolution of Young Link. But now both child heroes of Hyrule can battle it out in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.What Looks New in Ultimate?Young Link’s whole deal is that he’s smaller, faster, yet weaker than Link. His moves are also somewhat tweaked, like his fire arrows and traditional boomerang. Plus he can wall jump. But while he struggled in Melee, Young Link is looking surprisingly promising in Ultimate. He might be the best Link. Also, he’s now the only Link from the Ocarina of Time-era, arguably the definitive Zelda style.Our Hopes?With his Breath of the Wild makeover, Link is now fairly distinct from his two young counterparts. However, we are a bit concerned that having both Young Link and Toon Link will be a little redundant and we hope they have some significant differences we haven’t noticed. Everyone is here, but everyone should at least be slightly unique, even if they are technically reincarnations of each other.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation.

Expatriates may find polling stations next time

first_imgFinance minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith addresses an international seminar on Non-Resident Bangladeshis (NRBs) contribution to country’s economy organised at Bangabandhu International Conference Centre in Dhaka on Wednesday. Photo: Collected/Prothom AloFinance minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith on Wednesday said some four to five voting centres are likely to be set up in some countries so that Bangladeshi expatriates can cast their votes in the next general elections.”May be in the next election, we might set up a few of them (voting centres). We can set up in the UK, one or two centres in North America…the Middle East like Saudi Arabia or Malaysia is another place perhaps,” he said.The minister said this while addressing at the inaugural session of an international seminar on ‘NRB Engagement in National Development: Strategies and Way Forward’ at Bangabandhu International Conference Center (BICC) in the capital.Muhith said another four to five stations or voting centres could be designated for casting votes by the expatriates in those countries saying: “It’s not very difficult, not too expensive, I’ve noted down it in my pad and this might be an initiative that we could implement in the next year,”The Bangladeshi expatriates have the voting rights, the finance minister, but they only need to be registered. “It happens mostly, when expatriates come home, they do enroll themselves in the voters list.”Chaired by economic relations division (ERD) secretary Kazi Shofiqul Azam, the seminar was addressed, among others, by Expatriates’ Welfare and Overseas Employment Secretary Dr Nomita Halder, UNDP Bangladesh country director Sudipto Mukerjee and policy adviser to the a2i programme Anir Chowdhury.Mobasser Monem, a teacher at public administration department at Dhaka University, presented the findings of his study titled, ‘Engagement of Non-resident Bangladeshis (NRBs) in National Development: Strategies, Challenges and Way Forward’.Responding to the suggestions of the study on the NRBs, Muhith said there have been a lot of suggestions about incentives that the government can provide in all the areas, including in investment and importing goods. “Yes, we’ve some mechanism in the Ministry of Finance to provide such incentives. But, this is mostly on ad-hoc basis,” he said.Muhith on went saying: “We can perhaps systematise it in such a manner that we could have a couple of meetings in a year to consider all kinds of export incentives and thus announce the incentives. It could be perhaps twice in a year.”He said a decision could now be taken to hold an annual NRB conference in the country, but it can also be held outside the country.Mentioning that around 8 to 10 million of Bangladeshi expatriates are now working abroad, the finance minister said Bangladesh now has the largest number of expatriates in Saudi Arabia followed by Malaysia.During his presentation, Mobasser Monem suggested taking measures to acknowledge the contribution of NRBs as well as strengthening the government efforts to honour the successful NRBs. “For instance, ‘Probashi Padak’ can be given annually to successful NRBs in different areas,” he said.Mobasser also mentioned that about 10 million Bangladeshis are now living abroad. Of them, about 2.4 million Bangladeshis are living permanently in around 162 countries either as citizens or with valid documents, he said.last_img read more

File photoMyanmar’s hardline monks will dodge bans on Facebook and keep using the social media giant to “tell the truth”, they said on Friday, after it barred several Buddhist nationalists for hate messages targeting Rohingya Muslims.United Nations officials investigating a possible genocide in Myanmar have said Facebook had been a source of propaganda against the minority in a country where it has become a near-ubiquitous communications tool as the economy opens up.Myanmar’s nationalist monks and activists, who have emerged as a political force in recent years, have been sharing violent and angry rhetoric on Facebook targeting the minority, seen by many in the Buddhist-majority country as illegal immigrants.”It is a violation of freedom of expression,” Thuseitta, a member of the Patriotic Myanmar Monks’ Union told Reuters hours after Facebook identified him as a “hate figure”.”We will keep using Facebook with different names and accounts to tell the truth to people.”Nearly 700,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh, the United Nations and aid agencies have said, following an army crackdown after Rohingya insurgent attacks last August.Washington has called the army response “ethnic cleansing” – a charge Myanmar denies, saying its security forces have been waging a legitimate counter-insurgency operation against “Bengali terrorists”.Pinnyawenta, another monk from the union whose account was deactivated in May after repeatedly being asked by Facebook to remove some posts, said he had registered again under another name and would “continue to write about the truth” on the site.In an email message on Friday, Facebook told Reuters it was “investing more in the teams who are working on Myanmar” as it seeks to “understand and respond to Myanmar’s unique technical challenges”.The California-based company will invest more in artificial intelligence to deal with languages in Myanmar, it said.Facebook added that it had designated as “hate figures and organizations” a radical Buddhist group, Ma Ba Tha, and several prominent monks known for vitriol towards Rohingya, blocking them from the platform.The move had led to the removal of “a lot of harmful and violating content”, it said.Ei Myat Noe Khin, a manager of Yangon-based Phandeeyar, which helped Facebook translate its Burmese-language community standards, urged the company to hire more people who are unbiased and understand Myanmar well.That would be the only way for Facebook to tackle the proliferating accounts behind the rumours spread to trigger violence, riots and conflict, she added.last_img read more

Greece makes IMF payment amid signs of bailout progress

first_img Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober And Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras spoke by phone with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker Wednesday, and both said that “constructive talks should continue.”They issued a joint statement saying the two discussed “progress made in the talks … over the last few days” and spoke of details of the reforms Greece needs to implement.According to the statement, those include modernizing the pension system “so that it is fair, fiscally sustainable and effective in averting old-age poverty.” They also discussed “the need for wage developments and labor market institutions to be supportive of job creation, competitiveness and social cohesion.”The EU and IMF also sought to downplay talk that they are at loggerheads over the approach to Greece following criticism by Greek officials. In a statement, they said they “share the same objective of helping Greece achieve financial stability and growth.”Facing an acute liquidity problem, the Greek government has already ordered state enterprises, including municipalities and schools, to transfer their reserves into a Bank of Greece account where they can be used as a loan by the state.

All indications are it will struggle to make that payment as well as meet some pensions and salaries due later that week.A potential Greek debt default could set off a chain reaction that jeopardizes its membership in Europe’s joint currency and roils the global economy.Hence the importance of reported progress in Greece’s talks with representatives from the European Commission, European Central Bank and IMF that could spill into Monday’s meeting of the eurozone’s 19 finance ministers.Greece’s left-wing government has been locked in negotiations with its creditors for the past three months over reforms required to unlock the remaining 7.2 billion-euro installment of its 240 billion-euro bailout.In Brussels, technical talks that started last week were extended beyond Wednesday amid hopes for a breakthrough. A eurozone official, who asked not to be identified because the negotiations were ongoing, confirmed there was now visible progress after the talks had been bogged down for weeks.Meanwhile, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis was in Rome to discuss the issue with his Italian counterpart Pier Carlo Padoan, before heading to Madrid on Friday to meet his peer Luis de Guindos. ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Cash-strapped Greece scraped together a 200 million-euro ($222 million) repayment to the International Monetary Fund on Wednesday amid signs its long-stalled bailout negotiations were making some progress.The payment came as Greek government officials continued their whirlwind European tour and Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras spoke to French President Francois Hollande on how to push matters forward.

More cases filed at ECHR after IPC fails to make payouts

first_imgThe European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has notified the governments of Turkey and Cyprus of the submission of three more applications concerning the ineffectiveness of the immovable property commission (IPC) that operates in the breakaway state in the north of the island.The applications follow an ECHR decision in December 2017 which upheld Greek Cypriot Adriani Joannou’s claim that IPC procedures were protracted and ineffective after she had applied for compensation for her property in the north in 2008.The decision prompted the IPC to return part of Joannou’s property in Koma tou Yialou but the refugee appealed the decision.The new cases concern an applicant who went to the IPC in 2011, demanding compensation for his property. He settled on an offer for £428,360 sterling but the money was never paid. The man applied to the ECHR citing the lengthy delay and also claims he was discriminated against because of his Greek Cypriot descent.A company also applied to the ECHR over a complex it owns inside the closed-off town of Varosha in Famagusta. The company had filed an application with the IPC in July 2010 asking for compensation for loss of use and restitution of the property.Examination of the case was interrupted numerous times and in October 2012 it was said that it had been taken over by the Islamic religious organisation Evkaf. A month later, the IPC decided that Evkaf must be included in the process as a litigant.The company then applied to a court, which decided in 2015 that Evkaf cannot be included in the process. The decision was overturned by the supreme court in the breakaway state in 2016. The process has stagnated since.In the third case, two Greek Cypriot refugees applied to the IPC in 2012 over a property they had inherited from their mother. They asked for compensation and restoration of the property but their application went nowhere forcing them to seek recourse at the ECHR. The applicants claimed the IPC was not an effective domestic remedy and accused it of discrimination.The deadline to settle the three cases expires in June.In the Joannou case, the ECHR said its ruling concerned the particular case only and was “not calling into question the effectiveness of the IPC remedy as such”.It stressed that, at present, the IPC remained a remedy to be exhausted by other applicants who wish to invoke their rights and the court “remains attentive to the developments in the functioning of the IPC remedy and its ability to effectively address Greek Cypriot property claims”.The IPC was set up by Turkey in 2005 and was accepted by the ECHR as a way to deal with Greek Cypriot claims for compensation for their occupied properties.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
