The next hearing has been scheduled for 24 November.

New details about the circumstances surrounding Khashoggi’s murder came to light, including testimony from consulate employees about what might have happened to his corpse. “It is an unusual situation when our only hope of justice lies with the Turkish courts, as many press freedom reforms are urgently needed within Turkey, but the opening of this trial is a positive step. We will continue to monitor proceedings closely and call for transparency and adherence to international due process standards,” said Önderoğlu.The 20 Saudi nationals who have been indicted on charges of inciting or carrying out Khashoggi’s murder were tried in absentia, represented by lawyers appointed by the Istanbul Bar Association. The court ruled that the arrest warrants against the suspects would remain open until the next hearing, and it would refresh its correspondence with Interpol about the red notices Turkey had taken out. The court also issued a warning to witnesses who had failed to appear, compelling them to attend the next hearing.UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary, or arbitrary killings Agnès Callamard was in attendance, having called for the case to be tried in other jurisdictions – including Turkey – following the miscarriage of justice in the Saudi courts in December 2019. In contrast to the secret court process in Saudi Arabia, a handful of journalists were allowed into the hearing in Istanbul. No diplomatic monitors were present, despite calls from civil society groups for states to send representatives.RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire has called Khashoggi’s assassination “one of the most horrific crimes against a journalist we have ever seen.” RSF remains committed to the pursuit of justice for Jamal Khashoggi and the release of the 32 journalists unjustly jailed in the country.Turkey and Saudi Arabia are respectively ranked 154th and 170th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. RSF took an unprecedented mission to Saudi Arabia to free jailed journalists July 10, 2019 Find out more
Home / Daily Dose / Ginnie Mae Announces Document Custody Policy Reform, Risk Management Enhancement Print This Post Ginnie Mae announced its plans on Thursday to thoroughly update program requirements and infrastructure in relation to loan documents that serve as collateral for securitized pools of loans.Ginnie Mae’s SVP of Issuer and Portfolio Management Michael Drayne said Ginnie Mae intends to engage issuers, document custodians, and other stakeholders in a dialogue about how to most effectively update the program requirements and infrastructure relating to pool collateral.“We plan to take a thoughtful approach and expect that this will be a multi-year effort,” Drayne said, noting that the government corporation will use four “guiding principles” as it undertakes a comprehensive review and reform of the policies and procedures relating to the management of pool collateral via third party document custodians.The government organization realized the need for reform after the financial crisis and the unprecedented level of Mortgage Servicing Rights (MSR) transfer requests in recent years, Drayne added.“Every one of the nine million loans in Ginnie Mae pools is secured by a collateral loan file,” Drayne said. “As our business has grown, and the ownership of so many of the underlying MSRs has changed hands since the financial crisis, it has become even more critical to ensure that our program for managing this documentation evolves to meet changing circumstances and take advantage of technological progress.”Ginnie Mae’s “Guiding Principles:”1) Policy: Current policies will be re-examined to consider whether they adequately reflect and mitigate actual risks and the current and foreseeable state of available technology.2) Integration: Document custody functions and information should be more closely integrated into Ginnie Mae’s systems.3) Loan Level: Information about the status of pool collateral should be managed at the loan level, not merely the pool level.4) Enforcement: The methods by which Ginnie Mae enforces compliance with its policies will be re-examined and harmonized with its broader practices for managing issuer relations.

Comments are closed. IT loses out to finance in ScotlandOn 2 May 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Scotland’s booming financial services sector is resulting in a widespreadshortage of IT professionals according to a leading Scottish recruitmentcompany.Edinburgh-based Melville Craig, whose turnover has grown from £2m to £50m in10 years, says that demand for staff to work in the Internet and e-commercesectors – particularly relating to the financial sector – is producing a skillsshortage. This is driving up wages for staff and leading to gaps being filledby foreign staff. The company foresees a crisis in the next couple of years if action is nottaken to fulfil the growing demand. Liz Donnelly, Melville Craig IT director, explained, “This is a skillsshortage which has become more apparent as projects which were put on holdwhile we were in the pre-millennium period are being pushed forward. The demandfor individuals with Internet development skills, particularly with computerlanguage, are now at a premium.”She added, “This is a global issue, but there are initiatives beingundertaken to try and ease these shortages, including in-house training forsoftware developers and an increase in the use of contract workers.”One possible solution has already been developed at Edinburgh’s NapierUniversity where a pilot financial and IT course – devised after consultationwith 10 financial services companies – has 24 students due to complete theirstudies in two years.

Professor Matthew Leigh, former Dean of Degrees at St Anne’s—charged with managing the college’s involvement in the ceremony—praised the potential change.He told Cherwell: “This seems perfectly sensible if it means that we don’t have to make everyone sign their names, then chase those who aren’t there or forget to do so.“The ceremony is the thing that matters and that should continue. I still recall the inspiring words of the Vice-Chancellor when I matriculated in 1986. Remembering who came to tea yesterday can be harder.”If the change was made, it would affect the matriculation ceremony of freshers entering the university in 2018.Currently, students who miss the ceremony at the start of Michaelmas term of their first year are required to attend further ceremonies which take place at the end of each Michaelmas and the end of each Hilary and Trinity terms.Senior academics yesterday made clear they were “keen” to hear student views on the plans.The move online could overturn an almost 800-year-old history of registering students as members of the University through matriculation—deriving its origin from the Latin word matricula.The tradition is believed to date back to the early thirteenth century, when the first known statute made it compulsory for students to matriculate under a regent master.However, the ceremony has not always been taken seriously by its attendees. Last year, Trinity freshers were asked to make a charitable donation of £10 after drunkenly chanting pop songs during their matriculation ceremony in the Sheldonian Theatre.Modernising changes to the University’s historic traditions are unusual. In 2015, students voted in favour of continuing to wear subfusc during examinations, in a vote organised by OUSU.It followed a student campaign to abolish the “archaic” formal dress, which is also worn during matriculation.September 2017’s ceremony will be unaffected by the plans. University administrative officials have drawn up plans to make changes to Oxford’s historic matriculation process, Cherwell can exclusively reveal.The ceremony, which has remained unchanged for hundreds of years, is the point at which students formally register as members of the University of Oxford.But changes, soon to be debated at the University’s governing body, would mean that formal entrance to the University happened through online registration rather than at a ceremony in Latin at the Sheldonian Theatre.Speaking to Cherwell, Jackie Hoyle, the University’s Director of Student Registry, said: “Students are currently formally matriculated to the University at a ceremony which has included the administrative element of logging a student’s details.“Yet since 2007, each student’s college has already confirmed details of incoming students using the online registration system. The University will now decide whether to adopt a proposal to separate the administrative function of a student’s matriculation from the ceremonial aspect, thereby avoiding this duplication.“The traditional matriculation ceremony would be retained as a way of formally celebrating the enrolment of a student at Oxford University.”The changes will need to be passed at Congregation—the ‘parliament’ that governs Oxford’s statute regulations. It includes 4,500 staff members, and meets six times per term.Yet the proposed move has been greeted with some hostility by staff members, Cherwell has learned. University sources suggest that the response has been mixed, but that “disapproving voices are much louder”.Congregation members have described the proposed changes as “unlikely” to be passed. Elsewhere, senior college figures have suggested that the measure targets international graduate students, students who are ill on the morning of the ceremony or those who forget to attend.

EXPERIENCED striker Kenwyne Jones has been recalled to the Trinidad and Tobago national squad ahead of the country’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Panama later this month.The twin island republic under new coach Dennis Lawrence will attempt to revive a flagging campaign, which began with back-to-back losses to Costa Rica and Honduras.The 32-year-old Jones was dropped from the national squad under the team’s previous coach Tom Saintfiet. Jones will be one of 26 players called by Lawrence who registered his first win as coach in a 2-0 win over Barbados last week. The squad includes 13 home-based players and 13 overseas-based players.“I think the local-based players have responded very well to what we asked of them. We prepared them physically, mentally and tactically we tried as best as possible.We had to try and incorporate the players from abroad so we had to select based on the positions that were needed and required for what I want to do. In the end we put together a group that will give us the best possible chance of getting the result against Panama,” Lawrence said of the unit.T&T squad:Marvin Phillip, Jan Michael Williams, Glenroy Samuel (goalkeepers); Radanfah Abu Bakr, Aubrey David, Curtis Gonzales, Sheldon Bateau, Daneil Cyrus, Mekeil Williams, Tristan Hodge, Carlos Edwards, Alvin Jones (defenders); Andre Boucaud, Joevin Jones, Khaleem Hyland, Kevan George, Hughtun Hector, Hashim Arcia, Kevin Molino, Leston Paul, Levi Garcia, Cordell Cato, Nathan Lewis (midfielders); Kenwyne Jones, Willis Plaza, Jamille Boatswain.

(BBC) – New Orleans Saints quarterback, Drew Brees says “it breaks my heart to know the pain I have caused” following his opposition to NFL kneeling protests.Brees was criticised, including by team-mate Malcolm Jenkins, for saying such protests would be “disrespecting the flag” of the United States.Former NFL star Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the US national anthem in 2016 to highlight racial injustice.Brees said his comments lacked “awareness, compassion or empathy”.It comes in the wake of global protests held following the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, while being restrained by a white police officer in Minneapolis on 25 May.Many athletes have also supported Kaepernick, who was frozen out of the league after his protest and has been unemployed since being released by the San Francisco 49ers in 2017.“I made comments that were insensitive and completely missed the mark on the issues we are facing right now as a country,” said Brees in an apology on Instagram.“Instead, those words have become divisive and hurtful and have misled people into believing that somehow I am an enemy. This could not be further from the truth, and is not an accurate reflection of my heart or my character.”Brees said he wanted to apologise to his “friends, team-mates, the City of New Orleans, the black community, NFL community and anyone I hurt”.“I am sick about the way my comments were perceived yesterday, but I take full responsibility and accountability,” he added.“I recognise that I should do less talking and more listening… and when the black community is talking about their pain, we all need to listen. For that, I am very sorry and I ask your forgiveness.”Jenkins, who posted his emotional response on social media, returned for a second spell at New Orleans Saints this yearIn response to comments made by Brees on Wednesday in an interview with Yahoo, Saints safety Jenkins said his team-mate was “part of the problem”.“Drew, unfortunately you’re somebody that doesn’t understand their privilege,” said 32-year-old Jenkins in an emotional video on social meda.“You don’t understand the potential you have to actually be an advocate for the people that you call brothers.“You don’t understand the history and why people like me – people with my skin colour – whose grandfathers fought for this country… I still protested – not against the national anthem – but against what was happening in America and what the fabric of this country stands for.”Jenkins added: “While the world tells you that you’re not worthy, that your life doesn’t matter, the last place you want to hear it from are the guys that you go to war with, that you consider to be allies and to be your friends.“Even though we’re team-mates, I can’t let this slide.“Drew Brees, if you don’t understand how hurtful, how insensitive your comments are you are part of the problem.“The whole country is on fire and the first thing that you do is to criticise one’s peaceful protest. That was years ago when we were trying to signal a sign for help, to signal for our allies, our white brothers and sisters, the people we consider to be friends to get involved. It was ignored.”
