• Corrupt Nigerians, others to lose UK property in crackdown

    15/Oct/2016 // 234 Viewers

     

    A crackdown on corrupt politicians, tax evaders and criminals from across the globe looms in the United Kingdom. Tough laws are planned to stop such people from moving ill-gotten money to the country or buying property there, according to a report in London.

    The existing weak laws are being taken advantage of by such corrupt who launder stolen wealth through London’s banks.

    The National  Crime  Agency estimates that  £100bn of tainted cash is laundered in the UK annually with a large percentage going into real estate.

    But all that is about to end under the criminal finances bill, published on Thursday.

    Whereas the current dispensation precludes the authorities from seizing property from foreign criminals except they have been convicted in their country of origin, the new bill seeks to empower the appropriate agencies to force suspects to explain the source of their wealth.

    Thus, the Serious Fraud Office, HM Revenue and Customs and other agencies can apply to the high court for an order asking a suspect to explain how he obtained the funds to purchase a property, jewelry or other property worth more than £100, 000.

     The bill could come into force as early as spring 2017.

    Some politically exposed Nigerians are believed to have acquired property in England with stolen public funds.

     These include the late former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Alamieyesigha, and former governor of Delta State, James Ibori, who is currently serving a jail term in the country for money laundering.

     The bill also seeks to invest the police with more power to freeze bank accounts and confiscate assets such as jewelry and art, which are harder to seize under current laws.

    Security Minister Ben Wallace said of the bill: “We will not stand by and watch criminals use the UK to launder their dirty money or fund terrorism.”

  • UK goes tough on illegal immigrants, offers £2,000 to leave as country faces colossal migrant crisis

    15/Oct/2016 // 972 Viewers

     

    PARIS, OCTOBER 15, 2016: (DGW) THE UK Government  in an apparent withdrawal of  its magnanimity has launched a major  crackdown on illegal immigrants in the country, DAILYGLOBEWATCH has reliably gathered.

    Under this setting, the government is giving £2000 to illegal immigrants to make them leave the country as a  crisis  has hit UK's frontiers, official figures show.

    Meanwhile,  Margaret May has come under intense fire and  pressure by dissenting voices to put the situation under control in that she was in charge of the country's immigration services  for twelve years - a period when asylum claims hit the highest level in the country until she assumed office as Prime Minister

    Again, DailyGlobeWatch exclusively gathered that immigration officials are never less busy  dealing with queues of immigrants which run into tens of thousands each day in a bid to secure residence status in the United Kingdom.

    Amid the growing  discontent and concern  by various social groups in the country, the Home Office in a bid to tackle the problem has commenced an offer of £2000 each to illegal immigrants and free airlift paid for to their countries of origin.

  • WW3 RED ALERT: Europe's military oh high alert as Russia moves nuclear-capable missiles within range of Berlin

    15/Oct/2016 // 511 Viewers

     

    Russia has moved nuclear-capable missiles near to the Polish border as tensions escalate between the world’s largest nation and the West.
     
    The Iskander missiles sent to Kaliningrad, a Russian enclave on the Baltic Sea between Nato members Poland and Lithuania, are now within range of major Western cities including Berlin.
     
    Polish officials – whose capital Warsaw is potentially threatened – have described the move as of the ‘highest concern’.
     
    Germany’s foreign minister said the situation between Russia and the West was more dangerous than during the Cold War.
     
    ‘It’s a fallacy to think that this is like the Cold War. The current times are different and more dangerous,’ Frank-Walter Steinmeier told German newspaper Bild.
     
    German diplomat and security policy expert Wolfgang Ischinger said there was ‘considerable danger of a military confrontation’.
     
    He added: ‘This danger has not been as strong in decades and the confidence between West and East has never been so low.’
    Iskander missiles have a range of up to 440 miles (700km). Their deployment in Kaliningrad comes amid deep divisions between Moscow and the West over Syria, where Russia and the regime of Bashar al-Assad have been bombing rebel-held districts. 
    Russia has shrugged off concerns about the Iskander missiles, saying they have been deployed in Kaliningrad before and are there now as part of a routine military drill.


    But Estonia’s chief of defence Lieutenant General Riho Terras said he believed Russia was attempting to dominate the Baltic Sea. 
    He said: ‘In the long term, Russia’s wish is to bring the Baltic Sea and the passages leading to it more and more under its control, and to control it much like it does the Black Sea.’

    Kaliningrad, annexed from Germany in 1945 and geographically separated from the rest of Russia, is of vital strategic importance to Moscow. 
    It is the westernmost part of Russia and is home to its Baltic Fleet, as well as fighters and helicopters.

    Lithuania’s foreign minister, Linas Linkevicius, said: ‘The deployment not only increases tensions in the region, but also possibly violates international treaties which limit deployment of ballistic missiles of range of over 500 kilometres.’ He said the matter would be discussed in a Nato-Russia Council meeting.

    A US intelligence official said the deployment could be Russia expressing contempt towards Nato. US secretary of state John Kerry has said Russia and the Syrian regime should be investigated for war crimes over civilian deaths in Syria.

  • ‘Help The Christians First And Then Sink The Boats With Invading Muslims’- Hungarian PM Orban Doubles Down Against Islam In The Face Of EU Threats

    15/Sep/2016 // 1659 Viewers

     

    The European Union each day is exposed more and more for the paper tiger that it is as it tries to force Eastern European nations to commit suicide by allowing a Muslim invasion, and each day these same nations are doubling down against the EU even harder than before. Such is the case with Hungarian President Viktor Orban, famous for his anti-Islam statements, including most recently where he called for Christians to be helped before Muslims and, if the EU was going to have an army and a navy, that the proof of its success would be in sinking the boats with invading Muslims:

    ''A defiant Mr Orban called on the beleaguered bloc to focus on helping Christian people in order to tackle the migrant crisis, which has seen millions of refugees travel through the continent’s open borders.

    He said: “If we really want to help, we should help where the real problem is.

    “We should first help the Christian people before Islamic people.

    “If Europe wants the best for itself, and it really wants to build a united army, it should be able to rule the Mediterranean, and – as the old Roman emperors did – sink the empty, unauthorised ships.”

    The country’s hard line leader has urged Hungary to say ‘no’ to all migrants after hailing Britain’s momentous vote to Leave the EU as the nation “taking back its island”.

    He called for a nationwide referendum after the EU announced its migrant quota plans to resettle 160,000 Syrian refugees among the existing member states.

    Speaking yesterday, Mr Orban said he hoped the anti-immigration Brexit-like vote would “set an example for the rest of Europe”. (source)

    Since the 1400s, Hungary was literally on the frontiers of the fight against Islam, and for a time Hungary was completely conquered by Islam until it was liberated by Poland on September 11th, 1683 following the victory at the Battle of Vienna. Hungary then continued to wage war against the Muslims until they were driven back into the Balkans and finally into Anatolia.

    War is coming to Europe. We have been very clear about this for a long time. In the past, the world looked to people in the West to save it from the tyrannies of communism and socialism that so infected the east. Now, it may be that the nations European East- Hungary, Russia, and the Slavic nations- that will be the ones who come to the rescue of the West from they tyranny of Islam.

    The future is not set, and miracles can and do happen.

  • Migrants clash with Macedonian border police

    16/Apr/2016 // 246 Viewers

     

    Migrants waged running battles with Macedonian police Sunday after they were stopped from scaling the border fence with Greece near the border town of Idomeni, and aid agencies reported that hundreds of stranded travelers were injured.

    Macedonian police used tear gas, stun grenades, plastic bullets and a water cannon to repel the migrants, many of whom responded by throwing rocks over the fence at police. Greek police observed from their side of the frontier but did not intervene.

    More than 50,000 refugees and migrants have been stranded in Greece after Balkan countries closed their borders to the massive flow of refugees pouring into Europe. Around 11,000 remain camped out at the border with Macedonia, ignoring instructions from the government to move to organized shelters as they hold out hope to reach Western Europe.

  • BREXIT: London rents fall for first time since 2010 as pound crashes

    16/Aug/2016 // 297 Viewers

     

    London (AFP) - Residential rents for new lets in London have fallen for the first time in six years, according to the first study published on the issue since Britain voted to leave the European Union.

    A monthly survey published by Countrywide estate agents on Monday found that new rental contracts were priced 0.5 percent lower in July than for the same period last year.

    The average monthly rental contract in July was £1,280 ($1,647, 1,470 euros), around £7 cheaper than a year ago.

    "The large rise in numbers of homes available to rent has certainly slowed rental growth, even with tenant numbers increasing," said Johnny Morris, research director at Countrywide.

    He highlighted the increase in stock levels due to buy-to-rent investors bringing forward house purchases before new tax laws kicked in in April.

    "Added to that, uncertainty in the sales market in the run up to, and after the EU referendum has caused more discretionary sellers to turn to the rental market," he added.

    Nationally, rents for new contracts increased by 1.5 percent last year.

    Britain's decision to leave the EU has led to predictions of a slowdown in the property sector, particularly in the booming London market.

  • Two arrested in Austria over suspected links to Paris attacks

    16/Dec/2015 // 165 Viewers

    Austrian police have arrested two people with suspected links to the Paris attacks, prosecutors said Wednesday, with an Austrian newspaper reporting the two are French citizens posing as refugees.

    "Two people coming from the Middle East were arrested at the weekend," Robert Holzleitner, a spokesman for prosecutors in the western city of Salzburg, told AFP.

    "Indications of a possible link to the Paris attacks are currently being investigated."

    He said the two were arrested in a centre for refugees in Salzburg "on suspicion of belonging to a terrorist organisation".

    The Kronen-Zeitung daily reported online that the two men are French and entered Austria in October together with members of the cell who carried out the November 13 attacks in the French capital that killed 130 people.

    The newspaper said they had been posing as refugees and had fake Syrian passports, having travelled up from Greece through the Balkans into Austria along with hundreds of thousands of migrants arriving in recent months.

    Three of the nine Paris attackers have yet to be identified, including two of the three suicide bombers who blew themselves up outside the Stade de France stadium, who appear to have used fake passports to sneak into Europe.

    Holzleitner declined to comment on the nationalities of the two arrested in Austria or give any more details. The Austrian interior ministry and police also declined to comment.

    The Kronen-Zeitung, without citing sources, said that the information leading to the arrests came from an unspecified foreign intelligence agency, and that the two men had Algerian and Pakistani roots.

    The tabloid also said that the two had been waiting in Salzburg, a city popular with foreign tourists, for orders to carry out more attacks.

    French arrest

    News of the Austrian arrests came a day after a 29-year-old man with suspected links to the Paris attacks claimed by the Islamic State (IS) group was arrested in a housing estate in the eastern Paris suburb of Villiers-sur-Marne.

    Six counter-terrorism judges are overseeing the investigation – an unprecedented number for France – and the probe has seen 2,700 police raids and 360 people placed under house arrest.

    French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said a total of 334 people had been arrested since the attacks, of whom 287 were held for questioning, and that over 400 weapons had been seized.

    Eight men have been arrested in Belgium, where the attacks are thought to have been organised, and one man has been detained in Turkey on suspicion of scouting the Paris concert hall, bars and restaurants where the attacks took place.

    Salah Abdeslam, a 26-year-old French citizen who is thought to have played a key logistical role, is still on the run and subject to an international arrest warrant.

    Abdeslam was also registered as having been in Austria on September 9 after being stopped in a routine traffic check in a car with Belgian number plates with two other men, Austrian authorities said on November 17.

    Abdeslam told police he was "on holiday" in Austria.

    He also travelled to Hungary before the attacks where he "recruited a team" from unregistered migrants passing through, Hungarian officials said on December 3.

    PARIS, FEBRUARY 16, 2017: (DGW) RUSSIAN Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says his country does not interfere in other countries' internal affairs, Reuters has reported.

    He made this declaration on inquiry on Thursday during foreign ministers' meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tilerson about the recent turmoil in Washington in Bonn, Germany.

    “You should know we do not interfere in the domestic matters of other countries,” Lavrov said.

    He spoke days after U.S. President Donald Trump asked for the resignation of his key national security adviser Michael Flynn amid questions about his conversations with Russian officials.

    He said the two countries had “plenty of issues” to discuss, and said he hoped to establish the “parameters of our future work.”
