  • Journalist arrested and charged in connection with alleged Ergenekon conspiracy

    first_imgNews March 11, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Help by sharing this information TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law News Reporters Without Borders deplores the arrest of Mustafa Balbay, Ankara bureau chief and columnist of the centre-left daily Cumhuriyet. After questioning him on 6 March, an Istanbul judge ordered his immediate detention on suspicion of supporting Ergenekon, an alleged clandestine network with links to the military and security forces that is accused of plotting against the current government. Balbay has been charged under article 309 of the criminal code with “trying to overthrow the constitutional order by force,” which carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.“There is so far no evidence for the charges against Balbay,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on the judicial authorities to conduct a proper investigation backed by solid evidence against him. In the meantime, we support the request for his conditional release which his lawyers submitted to the judge.”Balbay was arrested in Ankara and taken to the Istanbul prosecutor’s office for extensive questioning about the serious allegations. According to the 95-page transcript of the interrogation, he is accused of “attending secret meetings of the organisation Ergenekon” and “possessing secret documents.” Claiming there was sufficient evidence against him, the judge ordered him held in Istanbul’s Metris prison. He could be transferred in the next few days to Silivri prison, west of Istanbul, where all the other Ergenekon detainees are being held.So far a total of 86 people have been charged in connection with Ergenekon, an alleged ultra-nationalist secular conspiracy against the government led by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose ruling Justice and Development Party has Islamist roots. Of those charged, 41 are being held in Silivri prison. Trial hearings began in October 2008.Balbay was previously detained in July 2008 during a major police operation carried out in several cities. He was released after a few days.Turkey is ranked 103rd out of 173 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

  • Extell sells stake in Manhattan rentals to RXR Realty

    first_imgExtell has sought to raise money from hedge funds and issued Israeli bonds. In June 2020, Israeli credit-rating agency Midroog downgraded Extell’s bonds one level, with a negative outlook, due to an expected further decline in condo sales.Speaking to the Financial Times in late 2020, Barnett said it was “very frustrating to build the most beautiful buildings in the world — super quality, super finishes — and to have to sell at a loss.”[FT] — Georgia KromreiContact Georgia Kromrei Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Message* Extell president Gary Barnett, 510 East 14th Street and RXR Realty CEO Scott Rechler (Getty, EVGB)Extell Development is selling off a stake in two Manhattan properties as it contends with a stagnant luxury residential market.The development firm, led by Gary Barnett, will sell a 42 percent stake in a portfolio of rental apartments to RXR Realty, the Financial Times reported.The transaction includes 750 units across two Manhattan buildings: 555TEN, at 555 10th Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen, and EVGB, at 510 East 14th Street in the East Village.555 10th Avenue (Extell)For RXR Realty, the transaction represents a bargain. It values the portfolio at approximately $800 million, while a pre-pandemic valuation pegged the rentals at $1 billion.The condo market was sluggish even before Covid delayed construction and all but eliminated international travel, effectively shutting out a significant pool of buyers. That’s bad news for Extell, which developed the Billionaires’ Row towers Central Park Tower and One57. Sales have reportedly been sluggish at the former, and the latter recently recorded a condo resale at a 51 percent loss.Read moreWhat will make or break New York’s residential marketNew York developers face downgrades on Israeli bond marketThe condo market’s ultimate test Tags Share via Shortlink Email Address* condo marketGary BarnettNYC Luxury Marketlast_img read more

  • DeSantis Says Schools Should Open; PBC Prepares for Distance Learning

    first_imgClaiming that students statewide have suffered an “education gap” from online distance learning, the governor asked school districts to consider opening campuses right away for the 2020-21 academic year.“I want our kids to be able to minimize this education gap that I think has developed,” DeSantis explained. “In spite of good efforts with the online, it’s just not the same. So I worry about that gap.”The governor went on to say that he is concerned about the social impact that distance learning has on children.“There’s something to be said for being in school, seeing people you know, growing up like a normal kid,” according to the governor.He added that he would not hesitate to put his three children, who are not yet old enough to attendAccording to Gov. DeSantis, exceptions should be made for students who have significant health issues, and that choice is up to parents.“Different parents have different calculations. If a parent wants to opt for virtual education, they should absolutely be able to do that. We shouldn’t be forcing them to do any kind of decisions,” DeSantis said.There are 232,718 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 4,009 deaths in Florida as of Thursday.Palm Beach County has 18,656 cases and 578 deaths. Board members also suggested the possibly of having teachers go into their classrooms several days a week to use their SMART Board and materials to teach children at home.A vote on that suggestion is also set for Wednesday.Following the final decisions, the school board will submit their plan to the Florida Department of Education for final approval.Last week, the Florida’s Department of Education issued an order requiring public school districts to open campuses five days a week.However, Palm Beach County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Donald Fennoy said the district has some flexibility with that order, as the district takes recommendations and advice from health leaders.On Wednesday, President Trump said he wants schools to reopen nationwide in the fall, and threatened to cut federal funding if they fail to reopen.Meanwhile, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday that children should be learning in classrooms.“Educating our kids is absolutely essential,” DeSantis said during a news conference at the Jacksonville Port Authority. “I have no doubt we can do this safely.”WATCH GOVERNOR ON SCHOOLS: The Palm Beach County School District released new details on Thursday as to how the 2020-21 academic school year may look, one day after school board members reached a consensus to begin the year with online-only classes.A spokesperson for the district sats that, unlike last March when teachers had just a few days to prepare and switch to distance learning, the district has had all summer to prepare for the possibility of virtual teaching with the new school year.In addition, Justin Katz, the president of the Palm Beach County Classroom Teachers Association, says the district will give teachers professional development training over the next few weeks, in an effort to help them be better equipped for online teaching.“There’s going to be a very rigid set of rules and working conditions that teachers will have to adhere to or face reprimand because that’s what we need to do to perform uniform high quality education,” Katz explains.In addition, a spokesperson says the school district plans to distribute 82,000 more laptops to students and make WiFi more readily available throughout the district.At Wednesday’s school board meeting, board members decided to start the 2020-21 academic year, which is scheduled to begin on Monday, Aug. 10, with online-only classes.A final vote will take place this Wednesday, July 15.last_img read more

  • SA’s fashion now online

    first_img30 July 2007A forward thinking company has launched a website that provides both established and up-and-coming fashion designers a platform to showcase their clothing and accessories in a virtual shop, the first of its kind in South Africa.With limited access to fashion shows and soaring rentals being a stumbling block for most young designers, Adam & Eve gives them a possible solution to their problems.“Apart from being an excellent place to shop, www.adamandeve.co.za is giving the rising fashion stars of South Africa a head start”, says Adam & Eve director Frankie Fleck in a statement on Wednesday.The company states that by having an online presence, South African brands will also be available to customers both locally and worldwide.While living in the UK, Fleck first came up for the idea of an online shopping portal in South Africa, which would give users who are either too busy to shop or living in remote parts of the country access to fashion.“I believe that our virtual shop could be a springboard for a lot of the rising talent we have here in South Africa within the fashion industry and by giving these designers the opportunity to share an online portal with the likes of Levis, Puma, Rosenwerth, Kluk CGCT, Black Coffee and Maya Prass, they are certainly going to benefit”, Fleck states.Other notable South African brands available through the website include Spilhaus (Swarovski), Black Coffee, Stiaan Louw, Chica-Loca and Mandy G.The company states that while many South Africans have been reluctant to spend money online in the past, increased security measures and more rigorous credit card procedures have created a newfound confidence in local online shoppers.“Together with the convenience of desktop shopping, sizing guides and an easy returns policy, this already booming business is set to dramatically alter the way fashion is displayed and sold,” Adam & Eve states.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
