first_imgINVESTIGATORS probing the affairs of convicted fraudster Francois de Dietrich are involved in an international attempt to find his hidden stash in offshore accounts.And they are convinced the Ballybofey-based crook – who is on the run from the authorities – has millions of euro stashed in secret Swiss bank accounts.They are hoping new international agreements between Switzerland and the EU will allow them to trace the money, even if it is hidden away under false names. One source told today: “It is now clear that Mr de Dietrich does have money hidden away; why else would he refuse to tell a High Court in Belfast about the location of his worldwide assets.“He refused on five separate occasions to comply with a court order and was given 18 months in prison.“It is still relatively easy to hide money in offshore accounts but it is becoming easier for the authorities to trace it, especially with the new agreements which are in place.”The fraudster was reported to have been hiding in Estonia; recently sources had placed his family in Nantes in Brittany although he was not there. Investigators in Ireland and Britain will also check accounts in other offshore regions including the Isle of Man and the Channel islands.Earlier this week a winding up petition against Mr de Dietrich’s firm ETIC Solutions Ltd was put on hold by the High Court in Belfast.A judge adjourned the application after being told one creditor from the south has already obtained an order from the company.With a further hearing in Dublin in May on that judgment, his legal team urged the court not to take any steps which could impact on the case.The FSA has already been granted permission to appoint provisional liquidators to ETIC Solutions. That move was seen as helping to protect creditors in the company headed by Mr de Dietrich.The one-time Ballybofey resident’s whereabouts have remained unknown since he was ordered to serve a prison sentence for contempt of court.He is appealing against an 18-month jail term imposed in January for failing to fully disclose his worldwide assets.SCAM INQUIRY: INVESTIGATORS ON TRAIL OF SECRET SWISS ACCOUNTS was last modified: April 16th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallybofeyconmandonegalFrancois de DietrichfraudsterSwitzerlandlast_img read more

G20 leaders divided over Syria

first_img6 September 2013World leaders gathered at a G20 summit in St Petersburg, Russia remained divided over Syria after holding a working dinner to discuss the issue on Thursday night, according to the latest reported on Friday that the leaders had “failed to settle their differences over the US push for military action against Syria” following an alleged chemical attack on civilians by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.The Syria issue is proving to be a problem for G20 leaders – the discussion they really wanted at this week’s summit was on the US plan to wind down its programme to stimulate the world economy.But Barack Obama seems preoccupied with Syria. The US president has reportedly managed to win the support of key allies for his plans to launch a “limited” strike on Syria. On Tuesday, Democrat and Republican leaders in Congress announced that that the US should respond to Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons.Russia has led the opposition to military action against the Syrian regime, backed by China, both of whom have cautioned against any military action without the sanction of the UN Security Council.Chinese vice finance minister Zhu Guangyao, speaking earlier on Thursday, warned the world’s most industrialised nations of the risks of military intervention, saying it would have a negative impact on the global economy, especially on the oil price.South Africa has taken the same stance, urging global leaders to rather allow the UN to intervene in Syria.Russian President Vladimir Putin, opening the G20 meeting, said that a global economic recovery was not yet assured and there were still risks of sliding back into crisis. “Our main task is returning the global economy towards steady and balanced growth,” he said.SAinfo reporter and read more

Ladies New Elegant Looped Net : Really happy with this looks very elegant

first_img Asolutely love it cant wait to wear better than the high street definately recommend will not be dissapointed fantastic price too . Just what i wanted for a wedding in may , well worth it ,. Arrived very quickly, excellent packaging. Great quality, matches just about everything. Successfully wore it to a wedding and received many compliments 🙂 definitely recommend. Centre swirl fascinator on a clip. I read other reviews for this item and having ordered and received it was certainly not disappointed. It is a well made fascinator, the colour was just what i needed and the clip fastening is wonderful when your hair is short. It is a neat, not too fussy, well made product. Wanted a little something for the founders day celebration at chelsea, and this was the ideal addition to pep-up my outfit. Big enough, but not oversized and looks more expensive than it was. Excellent price by comparison with what i had seen locally. Has a very strong clip and did not move once positioned. And when the main event was over, i clipped it to my jacket as a large broach. Other wedding guests enquired where i had bought it. Great product, arrived after couple of days after i placed the order, carefully wrapped and placed in a little box. Sits in the hair really nicely thanks to a good hair clip. I would definitely recommend this. Used at york races and was just as good as an expensive £50 one. Great item, excellent customer service. . Beautiful fascinator at a very reasonable price. My wife bought this for ladies day at leicester race course, it’s great value for money, looks exactly like the picture, said she is very pleased with it. Looked lovely, wore to a wedding in cyprus. I acquired this to don for my son’s wedding and experienced so quite a few awesome remarks about it. I have limited hair so wanted anything with a clip as an alternative of a comb or band. The clip is great for preserving it into area and you can shake your head vigorously (if you want to, at the disco) and it will not budge – bonus. It will come in a durable box (a lot more substantial than itself) but does defend from squashing. Also comes in other colours so there is a choice for other occasions. Selling price is fantastic and i will be recommending to anybody heading to a wedding ceremony and not wanting to put on a cumbersome hat.Beautiful properly produced fascinator.Just what i was hunting for. Was seriously uncomplicated to set in and stayed in all working day.Great price – excellent services. Will not bother heading to higher street suppliers to invest several hours wanting for a facinator. Acquire just one from allsorts accessories, they have a excellent selection of kinds and colors at a fraction of large avenue charges.Gorgeous won’t be able to wait to don it for my daughter’s wedding. Very pleased with it, and it doesn’t get crushed and therefore keeps its shape. Is ideal for forthcoming wedding. Good little item and well worth the money. Really happy with this looks very elegant. Really happy with this looks very elegant, stays firmly put in your hair and i do have quite fine hair. Arrived quickly, i would recommend. Very good service & very nice item. Wore the fascinator for ladies day at the races with a light pink dress and cream shoes – a very nice item wore with hair down and curly.

Salman Khan to sport Shera’s security agency wear in ‘Bodyguard’

first_imgBollywood super star Salman Khan who plays a bodyguard in his upcoming film of the same name has chosen to wear the uniform of his personal bodyguard Shera, turning down offers from several security agencies trying to get him sport their clothing in his next release.”There were many agencies who were vying to get Salman Khan to wear the uniform of their company. The companies were hard selling their uniforms, as it would have done wonders to their business, if Salman was seen wearing their uniform since it was integral to the narrative of the film,” sources said.However, the actor who has a heart of gold, put his foot down, and decided to wear the uniform of his personal bodyguard Shera even though, people were ready to offer him money to the tune of Rs 7 crores, just to sport their uniform.Salman was adamant and very sure that he would be sporting no other brand and decided to wear the uniform of Shera’s company, they said.Producer Atul Agnihotri said they have been getting calls from various security agencies from the day the film was announced.”However Salman was absolutely clear that he wouldn’t wear any agency’s uniform. Shera is his personal bodyguard..he is close too and has used his name as a tag,” he said.Bodyguard will be Salman’s trilogy of Eid releases.Wanted released on Eid in 2009 followed by Dabangg next year. The film is co-produced by Reliance Entertainment and Atul Agnihotri’s Company. It starts shooting this week in Mumbai. The first schedule of the movie has been completed in Pune.advertisementlast_img read more

(AP Photo/Charles Krupa)A Marine veteran said all he was thinking about as he crawled to the finish of the Boston Marathon was the men who died after an attack on their convoy in Afghanistan nine years ago.Their names were written on his hand, his shoes and his race bib. They were the inspiration, Micah Herndon said, when he first started running to escape the horrors of war.ADVERTISEMENT During the marathon, Herndon, 31, said he repeated the names of three men — Marines Mark Juarez and Matthew Ballard and British journalist Rupert Hamer — mile after mile.Juarez and Hamer were killed when a roadside bomb exploded in January 2010. Ballard, who was severely injured, died after returning home. Herndon was in that convoy, but his vehicle wasn’t hit.Repeating their names is something Herndon does when he’s training or competing in a race, even when he gets strange looks from other runners.Herndon, who was injured in another blast in 2010, got into running after coming home as a way to deal with post-traumatic stress. He hopes he can inspire other veterans.“It’s hard to reintegrate into society and be a civilian,” he said. “My message to other veterans is to find whatever your release is. My release happens to be running.”ADVERTISEMENT Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Philippine Arena Interchange inaugurated MOST READ Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power gridlast_img read more

Euronav Pushes Delivery of Two VLCCs at HHI

first_imgzoom Antwerp-based tanker owner and operator Euronav NV has agreed with South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) to defer the delivery of the two VLCC ex-yard resale vessels it recently purchased to the first quarter of 2017.Previously expected to be delivered between October and November 2016, the vessels will now be delivered in January 2017.Pursuant to these deferred deliveries, the amount of approximately USD 97 million that was previously expected to be paid to the shipyard during the fourth quarter of 2016 is now expected to be paid in the first quarter of 2017.“It is, in fact, hard to understand why anyone would think of taking delivery of a ship in the last two to three months of the year given the importance that the vintage year has on the value of any ship. It makes sense for any ship owner to do this, and would assist in smoothing out the world order book going forward,” Hugo De Stoop, CFO, said.He added that Euronav “is pleased to capture two vessels with a 2017 vintage and further rejuvenate our wider VLCC fleet with two high specification vessels and, as they are resales, it is done without increasing the size of the world fleet.”Euronav purchased the two newbuilding resale VLCCs from the Greek ship operator Product Shipping and Trading SA on July 27, data provided by VesselsValue shows.The 300,000 dwt vessels, ordered en bloc in February 2014 under a contract valued at some USD 192 million, were sold for a price of USD 84 million each.last_img read more
