Lawyer: Former Scranton School District employees to appear for waiver of hearing; Kirijan seeks ARD | Crime-Emergency Fri, 11 Jun 2021 20:41:00 +0000

The case against three former employees of the Scranton School District, which state investigators said last year ignored lead and asbestos issues and put children at risk, will not result in a preliminary hearing next week.

Lawyers for the former employees – Superintendent Alexis Kirijan, Ed.D., COO Jeff Brazil and Day Maintenance Foreman Joseph Slack – will appear in court on Monday for a hearing waiver. At that time, Kirijan will seek an accelerated rehabilitation measure, known as ARD, his lawyer, Frank Nocito, said on Friday. The success of the program would erase any accusations from his record.

Attempts to confirm any changes to the charges against Brazil and Slack failed on Friday.

Prosecutors have issued subpoenas for dozens of potential witnesses for the hearing, which investigators say could last up to two weeks. At the end of the week, witnesses said they received phone calls from an officer saying they did not have to appear. Court proceedings were also moved from the Lackawanna County Criminal Justice Center to the Moscow office of Judicial District Judge Kipp Adcock and began at 9 a.m. on Monday.

As part of the district’s ongoing investigation, a state grand jury recommended charges in September.

Kirijan faces 38 counts of felony for endangering the welfare of children and 23 counts of felony for recklessly endangering another person. While she was in charge of the district from 2015 to 2019, investigators said she was knowingly endangering students and staff by ignoring reports showing results regarding lead and asbestos that required immediate action.

Brazil, which worked for the district from 2012 until his resignation last year, also faces 38 counts of felony endangering the welfare of children and 23 counts of misdemeanor. recklessly endangering another person.

Slack, which investigators said was aware of the main issues but did not follow up, faces 11 counts of endangering child welfare and eight counts of endangering children. reckless danger from another person.

Slack’s attorney, Tim Hinton, declined to comment. Attempts to reach Brazilian lawyer Chris Caputo failed on Friday.

The preliminary hearing is still scheduled for Monday, according to a statement from the state attorney general’s office released on Friday.

“Our office does not comment on the ongoing negotiations,” the statement said. “Our investigation enabled the current administration of the Scranton School District to take immediate action to protect students and staff, which has always been our top priority.”

Chennai EOW arrests Ravi Parthasarathy, kingpin of 1 lakh cr fraud Fri, 11 Jun 2021 14:24:43 +0000

The Chennai Police Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) announced on Friday that it had arrested Ravi Parthasarathy, the former chairman of Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS), in connection with the Rs 1 lakh crore scam, which triggered a liquidity crisis in the financial services market in 2018.

EOW DSP Prakash Babu confirmed IANS that Parthasarthy was arrested and taken into custody for 15 days. He added that his bail hearing will be heard on Monday.

Parthasarthy, the fulcrum, mastermind and chief architect of the Rs 1 lakh crore IL&FS scam, has been arrested by the EOW in connection with Crime No. 13 of 2020, dated September 20, 2020, said the Chennai Police EOW in a statement.

The accused, Ravi Parthasarathy, is the former chairman and CEO of the entire IL&FS group. The IL&FS group, which consists of more than 350 group companies, has been used as a vehicle to commit fraud by the then leadership of the IL&FS group which was headed by then President and CEO Ravi Parthasarathy, ”said EOW.

EOW said the FIR was registered as part of the complaint filed by 63 moons Technologies Ltd, which lost a sum of Rs 200 crore. Complaints from various other applicants were also received by the EOW.

The request for early bail filed by the accused Parthasarathy in Crl OP 2007 of 2021 was also rejected by the Madras High Court. Aggrieved depositors and investors of IL & FS Transportation Networks India Ltd (ITNL) can forward their claims to EOW, he added.

What is IL&FS scam

The IL&FS scam came to light in 2018 after several group entities defaulted on repayment due to serious liquidity issues.

IL&FS, a leading finance and infrastructure construction company, is a “shadow bank” or non-bank finance company that provides services similar to traditional commercial banks.

Parthasarathy, said to be a close confidant of former finance minister P Chidambaram, is accused of fraud with intent to harm the interests of the company, its shareholders and its lenders, causing undue loss to the company .

Under his leadership, problems arose at IL&FS during the July-September 2018 quarter, when two of its subsidiaries began to default on loans and business-to-business deposits to lenders.

The subsequent series of defaults caused a systemic problem with many non-bank financial corporations (NBFCs) facing financial problems.

NCLT Directive

On October 1, 2018, the central government took action to take control of Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS) through a directive from the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) and stop the spread of contagion to financial markets. A new board of directors under the leadership of banker Uday Kotak was formed, with the previous board deemed to have failed in its obligations.

The Government of India (GoI) in its petition mentioned that “Ravi Parthasarathy and his team were responsible for the public’s negligence, incompetence and deception by presenting rosy financial statements. IL&FS camouflaged its financial statements by hiding a serious mismatch between its cash flows and payment obligations. It also hid a complete lack of liquidity and glaring unfavorable financial ratios.

Parthasarathy, who headed IL & FS for over 25 years, is accused of organizing one of the world’s biggest financial frauds and systematically driving a financial institution juggernaut to financial ruin.

Besides the first investigative body, the Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO), the Reserve Bank of India, the Ministry of Commercial Affairs (Union of India), the Registrar of Companies (RoC), the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) , Mumbai, as well as Grant Thornton’s forensic report made unfavorable conclusions against him.

The Republic of Canada has observed mismanagement and compromises in corporate governance standards, while there is another FIR registered by EOW-New Delhi against Parthasarathy and Hari Sankaran under various sections of the ‘IPC.

IF&FS Employee Welfare Trust used to commit fraud

In one of the more damaging findings, the GoI petition stated: “IL&FS had created a trust known as the Employee Welfare Trust which was used as an instrument to enrich its directors to the detriment of the company. This trust was used to perpetrate fraud on IL&FS and its affiliates. The trust owned 12% of IL & FS Limited. Ravi Parthasarathy and some other senior IL&FS executives were the primary beneficiaries of the trust.

The RBI report, which she submitted on March 22, 2019, pointed out that the major role in the commission of the fraud and financial irregularity was played by Parthasarathy during her tenure as chairman of the group.

The report highlighted the indiscriminate sanctioning of loans, disregard for RBI standards, fraudulent transactions on certain accounts, showing an inflated number of subsidiaries, conflicts of interest and the concentration of power in the hands of a few, including Parthasarathy.

The SFIO complaint, dated May 30, 2019, named Parthasarathy as the main accused. The report mentioned that Parthasarathy was the main decision-maker of the IL&FS group and used the group as his stronghold.

Being the president of the IL&FS group and director of its various subsidiaries, the coterie led by Parthasarathy abused its position and embezzled funds from the companies of its group.

It can be noted that the NCLT-Mumbai order to recast the accounts of the IL&FS group was challenged by Parthasarathy in the Supreme Court, which upheld the GoI decision.

Grant Thornton’s forensic audit also revealed a host of illegal practices, credit rating agency bribery and other fraudulent practices, clearly indicating the involvement of then-IL&FS group chairman Parthasarathy .

Zambeef Products 1H Profit, Pink Income; Warns on FX Hit Fri, 11 Jun 2021 11:01:00 +0000

By Matteo Castia

Zambeef Products PLC on Friday announced an increase in its pre-tax profit for the first half of fiscal 2021 on higher revenues, but warned of unfavorable full-year currency effects.

The Zambia-based cold chain food producer, which is listed in London, made a pre-tax profit of 54.9 million Zambian kwacha ($ 2.4 million) for the six-month period ended March 31, against 12.5 million ZMW the previous year. period.

“Profitability was primarily driven by crops, increased volumes and margins in the feed and food retail and cold chain division,” the company said.

The turnover reached 2.15 billion ZMW against 1.80 billion ZMW the previous year.

Still, the group’s dollar performance has been affected by the continued depreciation of the local currency in Zambia, the company said.

“The depreciation of the kwacha resulted in increased funding costs and foreign exchange losses on our dollar denominated debt, despite continued principal repayments during the period,” Zambeef said.

Dollar revenue during the period fell 21% year-over-year to $ 102.5 million.

“The kwacha is expected to continue to depreciate at a steady rate with improvements expected towards the end of the calendar year,” Zambeef warned.

Shares at 10:55 a.m. GMT were up 0.25 pence, or 3.2%, to 8.00 pence.

]]> D-SIBs remain on solid footing – Diokno – Manila Bulletin Fri, 11 Jun 2021 00:00:00 +0000

The country’s “too big to fail” banks remain strong and well capitalized as well as liquid with stable funding to support operations in the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bangko Governor Sentral ng Pilipinas assured (BSP) Benjamin E. Diokno.

Diokno only reiterated what he said in January that by assessing the performance of these large banks during the pandemic – called national systemically important banks (D-SIBs) – D-SIBs remain on “solid footing” After the BSP has been reviewed to some extent. the full impact of the public health crisis.


“The D-SIBs remain on solid footing in the midst of the health crisis. We see this contributing to the overall strength of the national financial system and the financial stability of the country, ”Diokno said in his weekly“ GBED talks ”online.

Diokno reiterated that the as yet undisclosed D-SIBs are liquid and well capitalized and have the capacity to handle potential losses. “Banks identified as D-SIB are required to have additional Tier 1 Common Equity or a higher loss absorption requirement. This aims to ensure that D-SIB’s risk exposures are backed by high quality capital instruments to increase their resilience, ”he said.

D-SIB capital buffers are still well above the regulatory minimum, with a solo capital adequacy ratio of 15.8% at the end of 2020, even higher from 15.3% in 2019.

Its latest liquidity coverage ratio and stable net funding ratio at the end of February this year were also higher at 192.8% and 142.9%, respectively. These liquidity ratios measure the short- and long-term liquidity of banks and were above what the BSP considers the minimum. This indicates the ability of D-SIBs to manage short and medium term shocks to their liquidity position.

Diokno said the average gross non-performing loan (NPL) ratio of D-SIBs, as expected, rose to 3.3% in the first quarter of 2021, which banks matched with a high NPL coverage ratio. by 99.4%. This increase in the NPL ratio is lower than 4.21% for the banking system and 3.73% for industry.

D-SIBs, characterized as banks whose distress or disorderly failure would cause significant disruption to the financial system and the economy at large, recorded asset growth of 6.2% at the end of March. this year, as well as an 8.5% increase in deposits. These numbers compare well with the 5.6% asset growth and 7.8% deposit growth posted by the banking system.

D-SIB loans contracted 3.6% at the end of March, below the 3.9% drop in the banking system’s loan portfolio, Diokno said.

BSP’s D-SIB policy is aligned with the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision which aims to reduce the probability of default of D-SIBs by increasing their loss absorbing capacity and reducing the extent or l ‘impact of the failure of D-SIBs on the national or real economy. .

The AHCCCS estimates that the average annual cost of care for homeless Medicaid members is $ 23,090 – a cost approximately $ 16,082 higher than the average cost of care for Medicaid registrants in general. The modification request specifies:

The AHCCCS recently assessed the crisis, inpatient and behavioral health care utilization of 30,363 members identified as homeless. One-third of these members made three or more emergency room visits and 38% made three or more hospital stays during the 18-month period under review.

For homeless people registered with a severe mental illness (SMI) designation, the average annual cost of care was $ 66,784.

In a letter to CMS administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, AHCCCS director Jami Snyder writes that the new waiver amendment is designed to complement the agency’s existing housing program. Using state dollars, the current program provides rent subsidies to nearly 3,000 homeless people each year. Snyder says the existing program has improved results and reduced costs.

“The state’s investment in permanent supportive housing programs has paid off, leading to dramatic reductions in emergency department visits, hospitalizations and crisis utilization, as well as increased utilization. less expensive preventive care. “

The change request would move this initiative forward, Snyder writes, by strengthening homeless outreach strategies, securing resources to support housing stability for members, and improving housing services and supports that are inclusive to obtain support. better health outcomes.

As part of its awareness-raising objectives, the AHCCCS is seeking authorization to cover reintegration services for people with severe behavioral and physical problems who are at high risk of homelessness when they leave school. prison or prison. Services would begin a month before release “to build community ties and ensure they receive the necessary coordination of care, physical and behavioral health services, medication and medication management, and support. social essential when they are released into the community ”.

Arizona’s current 1115 exemption expires on September 30, 2021. If approved, the amendment will apply concurrently with the agency’s requested renewal period of October 1, 2021 through September 30, 2026.

the federal comment period for the modification request runs from June 7 to July 7, 2021. Just two comments have been published so far, both in support of the amendment.
