PREMIUMCorruption, mismanagement rampant within SOEs because of lack of oversight: Watchdogs

first_imgDespite the important role the government has bestowed upon state-owned enterprises (SOEs) for driving the country’s economic growth, corruption and mismanagement remain rampant because of a lack of proper oversight.     State-owned insurer PT Jiwasraya, which has made headlines in recent months, is only the most recent example. The company has failed to pay customers trillions of rupiah for matured policies due to financial troubles.According to the Attorney General’s Office, alleged corruption and investment mismanagement within the company have resulted in Rp 13 trillion (US$910 million) in state losses.The downfall of the state-owned insurer follows the poor performance of steelmaker PT Krakatau Steel last year, when the company found itself in a dire financial situation, leading to the Corruptio… Forgot Password ?

PREMIUMIndonesian coal miners face lower demand as major buyers impose lockdowns

Register here Norman HarsonoThe Jakarta Post/Jakarta Topics : The world’s top thermal coal exporter must contend with significant cutbacks in coal demand as major buyers have imposed lockdowns to curb the spread of the new coronavirus, which causes COVID-19.Multinational market research firm IHS Markit estimates that Indonesian coal exports will fall to 363 million tons this year, which would be far below the government’s target of 395 million tons.IHS Markit senior director for coal, metals and mining James Stevenson told The Jakarta Post on Friday that that the research company expected global thermal coal demand to shrink by 66 million tons this year, mainly due to drops in China (20 million tons), India (15 million tons) and Europe (17 million tons).“We had expected light growth – just a couple million tons – before the coronavirus started happenin… Linkedin Log in with your social accountcenter_img Forgot Password ?

As the US shut down, Trump’s legal fight to build wall ramped up

first_imgIn the past 12 months, the administration opened 41 cases in federal court to seize land to build a wall along the southern border of Texas. Nearly half of those cases – 16, or 39 percent – were filed in the past two months.The bulk of the new filings came in March, when the administration opened 12 cases, the most in any month under Trump, a Reuters review of federal filings found. The administration wants immediate possession, bypassing traditional procedural steps and forcing landowners to move more swiftly, records show.Advocates for the landowners say the administration is choosing a bad time to get more aggressive, forcing landowners to choose between leaving their home to fight the case or lose their property. Also, a successful defense can be expensive, requiring paid experts, lawyers and other professionals at a time the US economy is shedding a record number of jobs.”The timing, on a human level, is very bad,” said David Donatti, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in Texas who represents a family fighting government seizure of their property. Even as the Trump administration was struggling to deal with the coronavirus outbreak, it was ramping up efforts to seize land along US southern border to build a wall and fulfill a major campaign promise, a Reuters review of federal court records shows.Donald Trump made building the wall a central promise of his 2016 campaign, but those efforts have been plagued by delays and false promises. Late last year, the administration got more aggressive, pledging to use the federal courts to seize large swaths of private land, mostly in Texas.While most of the US has been slowed by the COVID-19 crisis – which has infected more than 635,000 people and killed at least 31,000 more – Trump’s efforts to construct a southern border wall has only gained steam. Nayda Alvarez, a 49-year-old public school teacher, was served court papers in March. She and her extended family – including her elderly father who suffers from several health issues – live on 2.4-hectare ranch along the Rio Grande river that the administration wants to take immediately.”It’s very scary. My hands are tied because we are quarantined and fighting the federal government, literally,” said Alverez, who is working with the ACLU and another group, the Texas Civil Rights Project, in her defense.She was preparing to go to federal court on Tuesday, donning a mask and gloves, but her lawyers were able to delay the hearing until June.Unlike in other states, most of the US borderland in Texas is privately owned, which has delayed wall construction by the US Army Corps of Engineers. Federal lawyers have had to comb property records, track down landowners, make offers to buy the land and — if owners refuse to sell — file lawsuits to seize the land.The White House did not respond to requests for comments for this story.In recent weeks, Trump has made the case that the global pandemic only proves the need for stronger borders. On March 12, he retweeted a follower’s commentary linking the health scare to the need for strong borders and added “We need the Wall more than ever!”Topics :last_img read more

PREMIUMNew BNPT chief faces tough challenge of ending deradicalization behind bars

first_imgForgot Password ? LOG INDon’t have an account? Register here Facebook The new National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) chief is facing tough challenges to step up campaigns against violent extremism and the spread of radicalism behind bars.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo inaugurated last week police Insp. Gen. Boy Rafli Amar as the new BNPT head replacing fellow police officer Comr. Gen. Suhardi Alius, who had led the BNPT since 2016.Terrorism expert Noor Huda Ismail said deradicalization efforts in overcrowded prisons across the country, which had become fertile ground for terrorists to recruit and learn from each other, should be Boy’s main focus in curbing the spread of terrorism.“In prisons, the BNPT should join hands with prison guards, who interact with them [the terror convicts] on a daily basis. The BNPT should build the capacity of these [guards to provide counternarratives],” Noor said. “The BNPT should c… BNPT-chief bnpt #BNPT deradicalization #Deradicalization terrorism #Terrorism inmates #prison Linkedin Google Topics : Log in with your social accountlast_img read more
