Panama govt sets up panel to clean up country’s financial system

 

Apr 30,  1:53 PM

The government of Panama has set up a committee of independent experts to make recommendations on cleaning up the country’s financial system. The move comes after leaks of documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca caused an international uproar over offshore accounts.

President Juan Carlos Varela called for the review after the Panama Papers leak suggested rich foreigners were using the accounts to hide their wealth. He was speaking at the committee’s inauguration yesterday. Mr Varela said, their administration is committed to bullet-proofing Panama financial services sector against threats from people and groups who want to use it for illegal activities.

The advisory group includes Nobel economics laureate Joseph Stiglitz, former Panamanian President Nicolas Ardito Barletta and former Panama Canal administrator Alberto Aleman Zubieta. The group is to present recommendations to Mr Varela in six months.

UPA must answer who received kickbacks in AgustaWestland chopper deal

: Defence Minister:UPA must answer who received kickbacks in AgustaWestland chopper deal

Apr 30,

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar today said UPA must answer who received kickbacks in AgustaWestland VVIP chopper deal. Briefing media, the Minister said the main question is who received the bribe. He said Italian High Court equivalent had clearly said that political corruption was 15.8 million euros, which amounts to 125 crore rupees.

Meanwhile, Congress has accused BJP of lying and misleading people in the AgustaWestland deal scam. Briefing media in New Delhi, party spokesperson Randeep Surjewala asked why NDA government gave protection to AgustaWestland and Finmeccanica for the last two years. He said smear campaigns by BJP cannot cover up the fact that BJP helped AgustaWestland.

In the AgustaWestland VVIP choppers deal case CBI begins questioning Air Marshal (Rtd) J.S. Gujral at its headquarters in New Delhi. Gujral, who has earlier been examined as a witness in the case, was asked by the agency to come for questioning in the case. He who retired as deputy chief of air staff, was in charge of procurements.

CBI has also called former Air chief S P Tyagi for questioning on Monday. The Milan Court of Appeals, equivalent of Indian high courts, has given details of how alleged bribes were paid by helicopter maker Finmeccanica and AgustaWestland to Indian officials through middlemen to clinch the deal. The order mentions the name of Tyagi at several points.

California 5th Drought Year – No Panic, No Crisis, No Suicide

 April29, 2016 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.com

 

I am impressed by the statement of KC Tyagi ji in Rajya Sabha but all other speeches on Drought situation were Unfortunate TRAGEDY.

It is most Lunatic to think there is Flood in one region and drought in other – fact is same Region had Severe Floods and later Drought. 

Uma Bharti as usual was pathetic advocating Lunatic River Linking – MP, Gujarat & Orissa, Jharkhand, Rajasthan WERE HIT By SAVAGE FLOODS the latest monsoon season are now experiencing drought.

A Train drowned in MP near Indira Sagar Dam India’s biggest as Flash Floods washed away the railway track.

Median rainfall in Loss Angeles in Five Seasons is just 200mm approx – most districts in drought prone regions in India once or twice get over 200mm of rainfall in a single day. Some get over 300mm and week long floods like North Gujarat, Saurashtra & Kutchh and a Train in MP was washed away in flash floods due heavy rain last year are now drought hit regions.

It was TRAGIC even Rajeev Chandrashekhar who was CEO of BPL came without study and facts.

California 5th Drought Year is $2.3 Trillion Economy

Dam Storage Capacity 38 MAF – Live Storage 22 MAF

Entire California in a normal year get 32 MAF of water for $2300b Economy and today has 18.4 MAF of storage in scores of Dams or22 BCM approx has built 38 MAF of Dam Storage plus connected to Colorado River system that has around 12 MAF normal inflows but has 53 MAF of Live Capacity – California is entitled to only a fraction of annual releases.

MP and Gujarat or Maharshtra & Rajasthan are not even $100b to $200b Economies, all four states together get around 250-350 MAF of water almost 8-10 times. Some major rivers are Godavari, Krishna, Narmada, Tapi, Sabarmati, Mahi, and may West Flowing Rivers.

http://nca.gov.in/forms_pdf/annual-report-2014-15/annual-report-2014-15.pdf

California state get just 32 maf of water in a normal year – but in good monsoon year Narmada River had over 74 BCM or 60 MAF water but most of the water in Narmada River [70% to 80%] is lost to sea but not utilized.  P-91 attached.

Every drop of Water in California is accumulated, accounted and is equitably distributed.
