Construction disputes jump

first_img Share Construction related disputes climbed by more than a third during the credit crunch, according to new figures published yesterday, as the downturn took its toll on one of the industries hardest hit by the financial crisis. According to research by legal information business, Sweet & Maxwell, the number of construction disputes that went to arbitration rose by 31 per cent during 2009. Last year, there were 1,018 construction related applications made to dispute resolvers, marking a sharp rise from 2007 when 779 applications were made. A housing slump and dwindling demand for commercial space were some of the factors leading to the rise in disputes as developers came under pressure to reduce costs, according to the figures. whatsapp More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky Tags: NULL KCS-content center_img Construction disputes jump Monday 4 October 2010 8:30 pm Show Comments ▼ Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayUndo whatsapplast_img read more

Germany to simplify tax rules by 2012

first_imgSunday 31 October 2010 10:59 pm KCS-content Show Comments ▼ GERMANY could simplify its tax rules by 2012 to allow the public to file a tax declaration every other year instead of annually, Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said in a radio interview yesterday.Cutting taxes and simplifying the complex rules were central pledges of the ruling centre-right’s coalition reform agenda but doubts about scope for the former in the crisis has prompted Schaeuble to place more emphasis on the latter for now.In an interview with Deutschlandfunk radio, Schaeuble said the prospect of halving the number of declarations was tangible.“It’s a key point, and I think we have a good chance of putting that into effect by 1 January 2012,” he said.On Saturday a newspaper said German federal net new borrowing will likely be more than one-fifth lower than previously forecast in 2011.The finance ministry reiterated its position that federal new borrowing in 2010 would likely amount to some €50bn (£43.4bn) – roughly €30bn less than once predicted – but added that the total could end up being lower next year.

Jonas Ngalamulume, the National Congolese Press Union’s lawyer, who is representing Ngoie, said the purpose of today’s hearing was just to consider the request for Ngoie’s release and that no date to has so far been set to hear the substance of the case.“This is yet another case illustrating the dangers associated with journalism in the DRC,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “Although simply accused of defamation, this journalist has been detained for the past week and is being treated like a criminal. We call for his immediate release. It’s time the DRC adopted new legislation that provides press freedom with much more protection, so that journalists stop ending up in prison over work-related matters.”As RSF reported at the time, Radio France Internationale correspondent Pascal Mulegwa was summoned to appear in court last week in a suit brought by a senator for quoting an NGO’s claim that, when transport minister, he had channelled a public transport company’s funds into his senatorial election campaign.Journalists and media outlets continue to be subjected to many abuses in the DRC. Journalist in Danger (JED), RSF’s local partner organization, painted an alarming picture in its latest annual report on 2 November, revealing that it had registered no fewer than 116 press freedom violations in 2020, including 40 arrests.The DRC is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

A division bench of Jusitces Ravindra Ghuge and BU Debadwar said that even though respect for the law cannot be guaranteed by the threat of legal action, it has become necessary to send a “loud and clear” message to society that hostile witnesses shall not be pardoned. The bench directed the trial court to take action under section 340 of the Criminal Procedure Code against the witnesses, and a copy of the judgement to be forwarded to the Principal District and Sessions Judges in Maharashtra for circulation, to apprise the subordinate judiciary about the action they were empowered to take in appropriate cases. The bench held that it was a matter of “great concern” if witnesses turned hostile for “extraneous considerations,” as they would then begin to believe they are beyond the reach of law. “This would not only be a serious ailment/ disease to the justice dispensation system, but could as well be cancerous to the rule of law and the justice delivery system,” the bench observed. “We are finding practically in every case before us that day by day, the list of hostile witnesses is getting enlarged and the witnesses are getting emboldened in turning hostile for the reasons which can be speculated and perceived,” the court added. The Case The court was hearing the appeal of 75-year-old Saraswati Ganpat Landge, who was sentenced to life imprisonment on September 11, 2014 by the Ambajogai Sessions Court, in Beed, for the brutal murder of her husband over few acres of land the man intended to donate. The prosecution alleged that Landge smashed her husband’s face with an 8-kilogram stone, mutilated his genitals and then electrocuted the man to ensure he dies. Landge had allegedly confessed to killing her husband to a police officer soon after the incident. During the trial five of the seven witnesses examined were declared hostile, despite which Landge was convicted. These witnesses included the couple’s son (complainant) who lived with them, a neighbour and a formal witness(panch), among others. The HC court acquitted Langde and observed that it highly doubted that a senior citizen could carry such a heavy stone or have caused the injuries to the man’s genitals. Moreover, even though the investigating officer said the murder weapon was recovered at her behest, the hostile witnesses had created a huge cloud if the couple was alone in the room on the fateful night of the murder. The court held that the trial court erred in using the FIR as a substantial piece of evidence. “We, therefore, find that the conclusion of the Trial Court that the quarrels between the appellant and the deceased were proved on the basis of the FIR, is unacceptable. The FIR cannot be used as substantive piece of evidence.” Commenting on the poor execution by the prosecution in the case, the court observed. “Keeping in view that the prosecution has conducted the trial in a casual and half-hearted manner, five out of seven witnesses have turned hostile and as material witnesses have not been examined, that we are constrained to grant the benefit of doubt to the appellant/ accused and order her acquittal.” The court relied on the following judgements to make observations against witnesses.
