The Police said that five people on the tractor were killed in the accident. The accident occurred along the Batticaloa-Polonnaruwa Road.A van heading towards Welikanda had crashed into a tractor. Five people were killed following an accident involving a van and a tractor in Welikanda today.The Police said that among those killed were four women.
Conceived as part of an advocacy and social mobilization strategy to boost enrolment in the Campaign, the core aim of the initiative was to find out the number of primary school age children (6-14 years) who are out of school in Puntland. Through its findings, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and partners will explore opportunities to provide education to the children.The idea of child-to-child registration arose out of consultations between UNICEF and the Puntland Ministry of Education, women’s, youth and student associations, school mentors, community education committee mobilizers, and international and national non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The initiative in Puntland targeted Bossaso, Gardo, Galkaio, Garowe, Burtinle and Goldogob towns and six villages – Wa’iye, Dangoraio, Hafun, Bargaal, Bursalah and Ballidhidin. So far, the registration has been taken place in Bossaso, Gardo, Garowe, Galkaio, Hafun and Dangoraio. Boys comprise 53.5 per cent of the out-of-school children registered, and 43.5 per cent are girls. With nearly 450 settlements in Puntland, it is estimated that between 150,000 and 200,000 children are out of school. According to UNICEF, the child-to-child initiative has highlighted several important lessons, including that students can be effective in carrying out data collection and enrolment campaigns and that the data obtained give a realistic picture. Before the campaign the perception was that out-of-school children were few in urban areas, the number of boys and girls who are out of school was equally significant and emphasis should be on getting both girls and boys to school in equal measure. UNICEF will continue to undertake advocacy and social mobilization campaigns to sensitize parents on the importance of educating their children. Similar activities will be organized in collaboration with communities in Bossaso, Garowe and Galkaio.
“A meaningful decision on strengthening the International Arrangement on Forests will put us on a path towards a greener economy and a more equitable and sustainable future for all,” said Mr. Eliasson said in remarks to the Forum, which is holding its current session in New York through 15 May.“Realizing the full potential of the future arrangement will require all of us to play a role. We must all work to mobilize tangible and coordinated support, across sectors, and at all levels.”He stressed the vital importance of the current year to providing development and life in dignity for all and explained how agreeing a new Arrangement on Forests fit in with work to adopt a universal and transformative post-2015 agenda and set of sustainable development goals, to reach a universal and meaningful agreement on climate change, and to agree on a financing framework for the future development agenda.“In shaping the International Arrangement on Forests beyond 2015, it will be important to define ways in which the future arrangement will advance forest-related sustainable development goals and targets,” Mr. Eliasson said. “We must at the same time address the challenges of poverty eradication and climate change.”A more relevant and effective Arrangement to more sustainably manage forests was important because of the huge number of the world’s people – around 1.6 billion, he said – who depend to some degree on forests for food, shelter and income, as well as because some of the poorest and most vulnerable, including some 60 million indigenous people, rely on forests for subsistence and survival. “The post-2015 agenda calls on us to leave no-one behind,” Mr. Eliasson said. “The sustainable management of forests – in partnership with those who live in the forest regions – will be critical for meeting our ambition to eradicate poverty in all its forms.”And the fight to keep global temperature rises to below two degrees Celsius would be impossible without serious efforts on forest preservation, he stressed.“Three-fourths of freshwater comes from forested catchments,” he said. “Forests build resilience. Forests provide renewable energy. And forests offer effective and cost-competitive natural carbon capture and storage.”He underlined the link between delivering on a global commitment to forests and ambition on financing and implementation and looked forward to an Accord emerging from the Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa in July this year.“The Addis Accord should help put us on a path to meet forest financing needs,” he said, calling also for the mainstreaming of the forest sector into sustainable development at all levels and in all sectors, and for establishment of governance systems to address destructive practices and illegal deforestation.Mr. Eliasson said indigenous and local communities would be vital to any new Arrangement because of the important, traditional forest-related knowledge they possess, while the role of women as forest managers, stewards and agents of change needed also to be properly recognized. “We need equitable sharing of benefits from forests and forest products,” he said. “We also need to ensure payments for forest ecosystem services, not rewarded, not remunerated by markets.”He saw a stronger International Arrangement on Forests providing the necessary roadmap to meeting such challenges and called on the Forum to build on the momentum and opportunity offered by the current year.“Let us show the international community that it is time to get serious about forests,” he urged. “This pursuit is fundamentally about respect for everything living and for the necessary balance between Man and Nature.”
A magistrate has ruled in favour of Frida Theodorakis, a Carlton resident who was fined by City of Melbourne parking officers when she stopped her car in a loading zone to report a traffic accident. After witnessing a collision at the intersection of Elgin and Rathdowne streets in Carlton in November last year, Ms Theodorakis pulled over and parked in a loading zone to call police. She briefly left her parked car unattended, after the police operator asked her to get the car’s registration details. In the meantime, parking officers didn’t waste any time and gave her a ticket. Ms Theodorakis contested the fine in writing, explaining that one of the drivers “could barely stand on his feet” and that she felt she needed to do something “to try and help get this person off the road.” She also provided the council with a statutory declaration as well as audio from the triple-0 call, but the council upheld the penalty due to “insufficient evidence”. Last week Ms Theodorakis pleaded guilty to the traffic offence and broke down in tears as she spoke before the court. Deputy Chief Magistrate Dan Muling found the charge proved, but dismissed it and ruled that Ms Theodorakis would not have to pay the $141 fine.

Public sector employees in South Africa are to receive a pay increase of up to 7.7%, following the conclusion of wage negotiations between trade unions and the government at the end of last week.The pay rises, which will be backdated from 1 April 2018, will see public sector employees in pay band one receive a pay increase of 7.7%, staff in pay bands eight to 10 will be awarded a 6.5% pay rise and employees in pay bands 11 and 12 will receive a 6% pay increase. These will apply until 31 March 2019.The pay deal, which was announced by the Public Services Coordinating Bargaining Council (PSCBC), also confirms that pay progression is to be equalised across public sector staff in South Africa at 1.5% a year. This will be incorporated into national legislation and implemented on 1 July 2018 and 1 July 2019.In addition, the pay deal will remove the link between pay bands and the payment of housing allowance for public sector employees’ spouses.The pay agreement is to be signed today (Monday 21 May 2018) at 11am by involved parties.Frikkie Be Bruin, general secretary at the PSCBC, said: “The PSCBC would like to thank parties for concluding this key agreement. We acknowledge the leadership of the minister of the public service and administration and leadership of the trade unions, managing this very tedious process over a prolonged period with all of the challenges we faced.“We also want to express our appreciation to public servants tolerating the prolonged process and allowing us to find an amicable solution without having to revert to industrial action. Thank you to our facilitators Kaizer Thebedi and Ingrid Dimo for guiding us to this conclusion.”
First lady Michelle Obama isn’t helping magazine sales at the newsstand as much as originally thought.AdAge recently reported that Newsweek’s December 1, 2008 cover story on “The Meaning of Michelle” sold 90,000 copies on newsstands, 15 percent below its average for the second half of 2008. More’s October issue with cover story “Michelle Obama at 44” sold just 154,000 copies on newsstands, 23 percent below the second-half average.Exceptions to this rule were titles like Ebony, which sold 261,000 newsstand copies in September of 2008, up 26 percent from the six-month average. January’s Essence, which split its print run between a cover featuring the president and a cover showing the first lady, also recorded sales up 458,000 from 250,922 copies in 2008. Successful Strategy or Hype? To date, O, The Oprah Magazine, is the only general interest magazine cover to see Michelle Obama’s presence increase sales. So far, the issue, which hit newsstands on March 17, has seen sales up 25 percent. In 2008, single copy sales for Hearst’s title fell 25.2 percent.So what made O the only general interest title to reap the benefits? Maybe the sales boost had less to do with Obama, and more to do with the hype surrounding Oprah’s first time cover share. As for Oprah’s second planned cover share, we’ll have to wait and see…
National Human Rights Commission chairman Kazi Reazul Haque speaks at a press conference in Cox’s Bazar on Monday. Photo: Prothom AloThe National Human Rights Commission thinks Myanmar should be sued at the International Court of Justice for its ‘barbarian acts’ against the Rohingya people in Rakhine state.The commission chairman, Kazi Reazul Haque, has called the persecution of the Rohingya genocide of an ethnic group.“Such brutal oppression of the Rohingyas, the rape, the killing and arson, are rare in the history of mankind,” he told newsmen at the office of Cox’s Bazar deputy commissioner on Monday.The commission chief narrated his experience of visiting camps in Kutupalong and Balukhali in Ukhia upazila, and Nayapara and Leda in Teknaf, where Rohingyas coming from Myanmar have taken shelter.He said, the way Rohingyas were killed in their sleep and women were taken away, is abominable in today’s civilized world.The oppression, killing, rape and arson carried out on a small ethnic group of unarmed Rohingyas, is nothing short of genocide. The international community was informed by the National Human Rights Commission to urge Myanmar to stop the genocide. Now international quarters are urging Myanmar to halt the repression in the Rakhine State, yet Myanmar pays no heed.Meanwhile, around 300,000 Rohingyas have entered Bangladesh and many more are waiting on the other side to enter.Around 400,000 Rohingyas have already been living in Cox’s Bazar from before. The local people are reeling under the impact of nearly 800,000 Rohingyas living their and their rights are also being violated.Kazi Reazul Haque added, Bangladesh is not capable of facilitating such a huge population, but our government has been kindhearted enough to give them shelter. Bilateral relations between Myanmar and our country needs to be strengthened in an effort to send them back.Organisations like the United Nations, OIC, ASEAN need to be activated in this regard. Influential ASEAN member countries, Indonesia and Malaysia, have taken initiative. India and China can also forward to bring an end to the distress of the Rohingyas. Even after all of this, if nothing favours the oppressed, Myanmar should be sued in the International Court of Justice.The Chairman said, Kofi Anan’s report with comprehensive recommendations was released on 24 August. The attacks after a few hours of the incident, on over 30 border posts in the west of Rakhine state, could be a conspiracy.In the press conference, the chairman recommended three points regarding the Rohingya crisis. These were, full implementation of Kofi Annan’s recommendations to address the Rohingya issue, taking the quarters responsible for the crisis to the International Court of Justice, and ensuring biometric registration of all the refugees.
Rajshahi city corporationShahriar Khondokar, a BNP activist of Pathanpara in Rajshahi, was picked up from the northern city’s Fire Service Intersection on Monday evening. His family came to know the following day that Shahriar was kept at Pabna sadar police station.Shahriar was also shown arrested over there along with two other BNP men — Jahangir Alam, ex-Jubo Dal president at Rajshahi ward no. 15, and BNP activist Jewel Islam.Shahriar’r brother Khondokar Abul Bashar said Shahriar was picked up by some men aboard a microbus when he was having gossip with a few in the city on Monday evening.Shahriar is an engineer and a contractor by profession, said his family members. They claimed that there was no case filed against him before. He was just involved with the campaign for the BNP’s mayor candidate’s election campaign of late.Shahriar is one of many detainees as there has been a spree of ‘arrests’ throughout Rajshahi since the beginning of the campaign on 10 July for Rajshahi civic polls to be held on 30 July.The BNP men had been earlier shown arrested in sabotage and explosion cases filed with police stations in the city. But they are now being shown arrested in cases filed with police stations in neighbouring districts despite being detained from Rajshahi city.The police personnel are the plantiffs in almost all these cases. And accusations invariably include holding secret meetings to hatch conspiracy against the government, committing sabotage and plot to create unrest.Opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) sees this as ‘new evil tactics’ by the police and as prelude to election engineering to ensure victory for the ruling party candidates.Prothom Alo investigation found that a total of 11 BNP leaders and activists were detained from Rajshahi on Monday night alone.The detainees were then transferred to several police stations — in Pabna, Natore, Chapainawabganj districts.The BNP filed a complaint with the returning officer on Tuesday, saying 43 leaders and activists of the party were arrested by then.The BNP leaders alleged that the party’s potential polling agents and active workers were arrested selectively.As it stands as practice, the opposition men are being detained from different spots of the city and later being transferred to different district police stations.And such action by the law enforcers is making the party members panicked and their families are being harassed as well, the BNP leaders further alleged.As usual, Rajshahi’s metropolitan police commissioner, AKM Hafiz Aktar denied the BNP’s allegations. “We don’t know if they are being arrested from other districts. They might have been arrested in connection with cases in those places,” he said.Rajshahi metropolitan special branch police superintendent Abu Ahmad Al Mamun is assigned to supervise the matter of ‘who are being arrested from where’, and reasons of arrest during this election in Rajshahi.When asked, the police officer said a total of 28 people were arrested over cases relating to sabotage and possession of explosive substances, pending with different police stations in the metropolitan since 11 July.They were arrested in connection with specific charges, he added.BNP activisti Muktar Hossain Bhutto was detained from Bulonpur Ghoshpara of Rajshahi Saturday night. Another BNP man, Raihan Ali aka Rana, was detained from Sreerampur the same night.Raihan’s brother-in-law Jamal Hossain said, Raihan is a chatpati seller and active in the BNP candidate’s campaign. He was picked up from the nearby areas of his home on Monday night. Later it was known that he was in Chapainawabganj jail.Muktar and Raihan were arrested from Rahampur intersection, claimed sub-inspector Shah Alam, who is in charge of Chapainawabganj Gomostapur police station’s Rahampur outpost. They were shown arrested in connection with a local case.Tipu Sultan from Dashmar, Mamunur Rashid from Natun Budhpara, and Sabdul Ali, Saiful Islam and Sulaiman from Meherchandi, and Mofizul Islam from Namo Bhadra were picked up by plainclothes police on Monday night.They were arrested from Tokiya of Natore, sadar police station officer-in-charge Kazi Jalal Uddin claimed on Tuesday morning. They were shown arrested in connection with three sabotage cases.Prothom Alo’s Natore correspondent said a number of 11 activists of BNP mayoral candidate were allegedly arrested from Rajshahi and then sent to Natore prison in connection to three old cases. Two of them were denied bail by the Natore Sadar cognising court Wednesday morning. Hearing on others’ bail pleas will be carried out Thursday.”The arrested people are active election campaigners and many of them are named in the election agents’ list,” BNP mayor candidate Mosaddek Hossain Bulbul said.He alleged that his men were selectively being arrested ahead of the elections to create an atmosphere of fear. More than 100 of them were already sent to jail in 14 cases so far, he added.When asked about the BNP’s allegation, assistant returning officer Atiar Rahman said the matter would be brought to the attention of the Rajshahi metropolitan police commission. *This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Nusrat Nowrin.

By Joi Thomas, Special to the AFROMany Baltimore communities are in need of additional resources to help make life better.Speak to My Heart Ministries, founded in 2007, recognizes this need and every year holds a Community Day to show the neighbors how much they mean to the church. This year’s community day is August 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 7903 West Belvedere Ave, in the Family Dollar parking lot.Speak to My Heart Ministries Community DayMany national artists will be performing including Grammy Award winning artist Regina Belle, R & B artist Stacey Lattisaw, teen rap star Lil Key, Baltimore’s own Woody (formerly of Dru Hill) and special guest, fitness guru Monte Sanders. There will also be performances by upcoming artists including Naomi B, Jamaal Bethea, Keisha Dukes and Rainbow Israel.Bishop Duane Johnson, pastor and founder of Speak to My Heart Ministries, is looking forward to blessing the community with this event. “Our annual Community Day is action-packed and will also feature a marching band, free haircuts, free backpacks with school supplies, vendors and free health screenings,” Johnson told the AFRO. “When we started a few years ago, this effort was originally a community health fair, but now it is morphing into a mini cultural festival backed by major sponsors.”Johnson added, “The vision behind our community day is multifaceted. First, we recognize that there are many in our community with a lack of access to resources including social, economic, medical, educational, etc., so our vision is to bring those resources to the people so that they can get some of the help that they may need.” Secondly, there is an old saying that, ’You must catch the fish before you can clean the fish.’ There are many people who will not come to church, or who have left the church for any number of reasons, so, our annual Community Day is yet another way that we attract and reach those people and cater to their spiritual needs.”Planning for such an event occurs year round according to Johnson. “We take an all hands on deck approach with this event and everyone at our church, even our young children, play a part and have an assignment on this day,” Johnson said.The annual Community Day is just one way that Speak to My Heart Ministries reaches out to those in need. “We have a big Youth Empowerment weekend in mid-October as well as our Fall Family Fun Night which will be on October 31,” said Johnson. “A few other events on the horizon for Speak To My Heart Ministries this fall include breast cancer awareness activities, our annual coat and glove drive, our second annual father-daughter dance and our fall revival. We also offer dance classes, mime instruction, and a boys to men mentoring program every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.,” he added.If you are planning to attend Community Day on Aug. 25, make sure you bring a lawn chair to enjoy the performances.

Keeping that in mind, Modern Art Gallery organised an exhibition of eminent artist Krishendu Porel’s paintings at the India Habitat Centre. The paintings were architectural art with the theme centering around the current social and political conditions.‘He has painted what is there in our heritage with the traumas and beauties of the modern world. It is a reflection of the tedious life that can be seen in one of his paintings which has oiled pillars with people slipping down. In another painting, the Jantar Mantar is painted green because tomorrow when there is no green in the environment, people can probably look back at it. It is just a reflection of his thought,’ said Sushmita Shekhar. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’‘It is a launch platform with the motive of encouraging the artists,’ said Ritu Chagti, director, Modern Art Gallery.Curator Paramjit S. Kochar feels that Porel has great talent and potential and the ‘architectural art which has a colonial essence’ is something that anybody can connect with. What makes Krishendu’s works special is the deeper meaning they have and the different things and emotions they depict.‘My paintings have a message that I’m trying to convey to the society. Like for example, the painting with mother and child represents the safety and security that a child has when s/he is in his/her mother’s arms. So in order to understand a painting, you have to look deeper,’ said Krishendu Porel.

News | January 12, 2011 RadNet Adds to its Imaging Center Network Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019. A variety of factors, however, could cause projections for this and other modalities to change. Graphic courtesy of Pixabay January 12, 2011 — RadNet Inc., a provider of diagnostic imaging services with a network of 200 fully-owned and operated outpatient imaging centers, has acquired imaging centers in Brooklyn and Orchard Park, N.Y., from Presgar Imaging and affiliated entities for cash consideration of $2.2 million, plus the assumption of approximately $700,000 of debt. Highway Imaging in Brooklyn and Parkland Diagnostic in Orchard Park are both multi-modality facilities, offering a combination of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, ultrasound, mammography, bone density and X-ray. The two centers should add approximately $7 million of revenue to RadNet on an annualized basis.RadNet’s core markets include California, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York. RadNet, through wholly owned subsidiaries, also offers radiology software solutions and teleradiology services to hospitals, radiology groups and other diagnostic imaging industry participants.

Renowned Cairns Indigenous tourism icon, Tjapukai, was relaunched yesterday by the Governor General, Sir Peter Cosgrove, following a $13 million redevelopment.The significant upgrading project has seen the venue reinvented with a new vision and identity – ‘Tjapukai – Where Australia Begins’ – that reflects Tjapukai’s aim to provide visitors with an informative and stimulating immersion into Indigenous Australia’s rich history and culture.The major investment by owners Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) has seen the introduction of new exterior and interior designs, the opening of new theatres, restaurants and galleries, and the creation of new productions and tour experiences.Tjapukai is located to the north of Cairns, next to Skyrail and set in 25 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens with a backdrop of the Barron Gorge National Park rainforest.“We’ve re-imagined the entire Tjapukai experience, using 21st century technologies to tell the Dreamtime stories of Indigenous Australia in even more engaging and compelling ways than before,” says Tjapukai CEO, Greg Erwin.“Appreciating Indigenous culture is considered one of the primary attractions for visitors to Australia, and with the significant upgrade to the centre, we believe that Tjapukai will play a major role in highlighting Tropical North Queensland as Australia’s richest and most accessible destination for quality Indigenous tourism experiences.“The Tjapukai dance troupe has captivated audiences around the world with their vivid and dramatic performances, and we now have a venue that will make the experience for visitors even more memorable.”Mr Erwin said the new exterior and interior design reflected the local Djabugay people’s beliefs that everything in society and life is divided between wet and dry, and based around the region’s climatic seasons.For further information: www.tjapukai.com.au Source = Tjapukai
A 42-year-old man was arrested and remanded for eight days on Thursday after firing four shots at a police officer in Trimiklini, Limassol.The man’s father told police at 4.40pm on Wednesday that his son was drunk and causing damage to his home. When officers went to the scene, however, the father asked them to leave and said he would deal with the situation himself.At 9.30pm police were told the suspect was firing shots, but when they arrived he had hidden behind Panayia Eleousa church.Attempts to get him to surrender and give up his gun were unsuccessful. Instead he started swearing and fired two shots at a policeman, one of which hit a wall which the officer was using as cover.The officer responded by firing two warning shots, prompting the man to fire back another two shots without injuring anybody.Taking advantage of the darkness, the shooter managed to escape, while members of the anti-riot squad were summoned to locate him and negotiate a surrender.Following lengthy discussions the suspect left his house unarmed at 1.15am and was arrested.According to police, an attempt was made to obtain a written statement but the suspect was too confused.At the same time, officers searched his house and found a G3 military rifle, something that is deemed crucial as he returned shortly after midnight and told his 16-year-old son he was looking for his rifle.The man was charged for several offences, the most serious of them attempted murder. He appeared in court without a lawyer and didn’t object to the remand but claimed that though he didn’t remember much, the police officers were the ones who attempted to shoot him and he didn’t aim at the officer when he fired shots.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

The public’s trust in institutions is being eroded, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Thursday evening when asked to comment on media reveals that two veteran MPs and the environment commissioner had non-performing loans worth hundreds of thousands at the co-op bank, shuttered last year and sold to Hellenic Bank after it failed to manage some €7 billion in bad debts.“Unfortunately with each passing day, due to shadows being cast over certain institutions, or antagonism among institutions or due to the actions of political personnel, this mistrust is constantly growing,” the president said.Daily Politis on Thursday named Diko MP Zaharias Koulias, who is also the chairman of the House watchdog committee and apparently moonlights as a developer, as having some €300,000 in delayed obligations.The MP, who was a partner in a construction company, Troullis and Koulias, had borrowed €2 million between 2008 and 2012 and around €1.8m between 2005 and 2007.Koulias had failed to declare his interest when discussing related issues in parliament, the paper said.Hitting back, the MP attributed the revelations to a smear campaign.He accused Politis of ulterior motives, in that he and the newspaper are involved in litigation against each other.Koulias had sued the paper for libel over a report alleging he engaged in dodgy land deals. He won the judgment, but Politis appealed the decision.The hearing in the appeal is scheduled for this coming Monday, he added, noting that the timing of the new Politis report was “interesting.”The MP also questioned the provenance of the information leaked to the press. It was obvious, he said, the information must have come from someone in government, since the co-op bank was until recently controlled by the state.This is happening at a time when the current administration is feeling the heat after the release of a report on the co-op’s demise. The report assigned a significant portion of the blame on the government and the finance minister.To divert attention away from itself, the government was now leaking compromising information about politicians who had loans with the co-op, Koulias said.He suggested, too, that the exposure was intended to derail his bid for MEP in the upcoming European Parliament elections.“In any case, the loans I took were done legitimately, without exception or favourable treatment, just like any other citizen.”Asked whether he ought to have declared an interest when it came to the co-op, Koulias said no.Although he chairs the House watchdog committee – which among other things discussed the situation at the co-op – it was normal for MPs to deal with issues of “public interest.”Moreover, he was not obliged under the law to declare all his business affiliations or interests.“Should parliament bring legislation mandating that everyone in the public sector disclose their income, assets and bank deposits, I will be the first to vote for it,” he said.“But what I shall not do is play the role of the useful idiot by consenting to my private data being breached just so that the public’s sense of justice be satisfied.”On Wednesday evening, Sigma television named Disy MP Costas Constantinou and environment commissioner Ioanna Panayiotou as having hefty loans they had not been servicing.In 2017, Constantinou, the report said, had restructured a €2.5m loan, which had an overdue amount of €1.1m.He too had failed to declare a potential conflict when discussing co-op related issues in parliament.Similarly, Panayiotou had restructured a €1.4m loan which showed delays amounting to €885,000. The report said irregularities had also been detected in the application process such as failure to assess her ability to repay.Constantinou denied ever borrowing €2.5mn.He said years ago, his wife, himself, and their three adult children took out five loans of CYP190,000 each (€1.6mn), which were fully secured.The loans were serviced until 2011 but because of the crisis he could not afford the instalment, he said.The loans were restructured in 2017 after they reached €1.8mn, the MP said. The bank agreed to deduct €300,000, deemed as overcharges.The Disy MP said he will repay his loan as soon as possible.“There was no favouritism or discrimination,” he said, nor did he intervene in the process.Panayiotou also said she had never received preferential treatment from a bank and the loan was not as high as the reports claimed.“The fact that I am a political person not only didn’t help my sincere efforts to restructure, but it led to their failure exactly because I am a political person,” Panayiotou said.Koulias also denied receiving preferential treatment, adding that he was trying to restructure the loan.He said his company had taken out many loans and had met its obligations at all times until the economic crisis hit.“When it terminated its operations it had to restructure,” he said.
