{UAH} SPAIN FALLS BEHIND ON LIST OF WORLD’S MOST CORRUPT COUNTRIES

SPAIN FALLS BEHIND ON LIST OF WORLD'S MOST CORRUPT COUNTRIES, RANKS BELOW QATAR, POLAND AND BOTSWANA

0

SPAIN has dropped a place on the 'world's most corrupt country' list. 

Transparency International's Corruption Perception Index for 2017, released yesterday, places Spain at 42nd – after being ranked 41st last year.

With a score of 57 out of 100 (100 being the least corrupt), it ties with Cyrpus, the Czech Republic and Dominica, but is beaten by Qatar, Poland and Botswana, which were ranked 29th, 34th and 36th respectively.

"The results are disturbing," said Transparency International.

"This year's index shows that the majority of countries are making little or no progress in ending corruption. Even worse, journalists and activists in corrupt countries are risking their lives every day in an effort to speak out.

"The index ranks 180 countries using a scale of 0 to 100, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is very clean. This year, more than two-thirds of countries score below 50.

"Unfortunately, compared to recent years, this poor performance is nothing new.

"Countries with the least protection for press and activists also tend to have the worst rates of corruption. In fact, every week at least one journalist is killed in a country that is highly corrupt."

It comes as Spain is witnessing several high profile corruption cases.

The ERE scandal in Andalucia is one of the biggest in the country's history, with party leaders and politicians accused of syphoning off more than €1 billion in public funds.

Meanwhile the Gurtel case is seeing dozens of Partido Popular politicians come under scrutiny over an alleged slushfund, and even saw the country's prime minister be forced to testify.

KAMPALA. Meera Investments Ltd, one of the business entities owned by city businessman Sudhir Ruparelia, has sued dfcu Bank, seeking to reclaim leasehold titles and developments for 48 banking halls taken over by the latter when Crane Bank was liquidated.
In a suit filed before the High Court Land Division, Meera Investments Ltd contends that it is the rightful owner of the land titles and that their transfer to dfcu Bank should have been effected after its consent.

"The plaintiff (Meera Investments) brings this suit in its capacity as the registered owner of the freehold and mailo interests, the subject of leases constituting the suit properties against the 1st defendant (dfcu Bank) on account of illegality and fraud committed by the 1st defendant (dfcu Bank) in the transfer on the leases on the suit properties into the names, taking possession and further on account of trespass on the suit properties," Meera Investments states in its petition.

Commissioner sucked in
Also sued alongside dfcu Bank is the Commissioner for Land Registration, who is accused of conniving with dfcu Bank to transfer the leases of the 48 properties into the latter's names without the consent of Meera Investments Ltd, an omission it says renders such transfer null and void.
However, in a written statement of defence in court, dfcu Bank states that no prior written consent was needed from Meera Investments Ltd in order to effect the transfer of the said certificates of title to them by Bank of Uganda (BoU).

Through its lawyers Sebalu & Lule Advocates, the bank further explains that upon BoU taking over Crane Bank and the eventual transfer of its assets and liabilities to them, Crane Bank's branch network comprising 48 leasehold land titles was accordingly transferred to them.
"On January 25, 2017, BoU, pursuant to its statutory authority specifically Section 95(1) (b) of the Financial Institutions Act (FIA) and in consideration of the 1st defendant (dfcu Bank) assuming the liabilities of Crane Bank Ltd, transferred to the 1st defendant (dfcu Bank) the assets of Crane Bank, including its branch network comprising 48 leasehold certificate of titles listed," dfcu Bank says.

"The transfer and handing over of the possession of the 48 leasehold certificates of titles was effected by BoU under regulatory and intervention powers granted to it by statute specifically Sections 95 (1) (b) and (C) of the FIA and accordingly, not having been a transfer by Crane Bank, the contractual covenants in the lease agreements relating to the transfer of the leases or parting with possession of the leased land did not apply," dfcu Bank further states.
Meera is seeking an order directing the Commissioner for Land Registration to cancel the leasehold titles in respect of the contested properties and reinstate it as the rightful owner.

Meera Investments Ltd says between 2012 and 2016, it executed several lease agreements with then Crane Bank (now liquidated) and leased several properties to it. Meera adds that the then Crane Bank agreed to pay $6,000 (about Shs21m) as ground rent for each of the properties at the beginning of every year.
On October 25, 2016, BoU took over Crane Bank and suspended all members of its board, saying the then biggest indigenous bank was incurably drained financially and posed a systemic risk to the country's banking sector. The central bank later sold Crane Bank to dfcu Bank in January 2017.

{UAH} EDWARD IRUNDRUA'S BANAL DRIVEL ON THE SEOUL WINTER OLYMPICS

Alan Barigue/ Frank Mujabi/ Ikanos/ Moses Nekyon/ Mayimuna

 

Why is Nubian fart Edward Mo irundrua such a stupid person?. I am really getting sick and tired of Abbey Semewambai in particular, for the simple reason that he should not  be allowing Irundrua to parlay his ignorance on his forum with total  impunity and completely unchecked.

 

 I have exposed irundrua's lies again and again, but Semuewmabai just folds his arms and goes to sleep. When I exposed the sadistic lie that Irundrua peddled that the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre of school children in Connecticut in 2012  did not happen, but was a lie concocted by President Obama and the parents of the children for a bribe of $70,000, did you hear Semewambai as much as give Irundrua a tick on the fingers for peddling such a sick lie? Even when I published the pictures of the 26 victims  of Adam Lanza and as well as a funeral tribute by one of the fathers. Mr Jimmy Greene, to his 6 year old daughter Anna Green, who was one of the victims, did you hear Semuwamba as much as lift a finger to defend the integrity of his forum or to prevent it from becoming a cess-pool of vile calumny and hatred where sociopaths and psychotic sadists like irundrua  can dance on the graves of their victims?

 

Now just read this nonsense that Irundrua writes about the Winter Olympics which are just ending in Seoul, South Korea. Look at the drivel that he writes: as usual he blames Obama for the performance of the American team. The man is so stupid, he has not even looked at the Medal Tables.

 

I am posting below the Tables for the last two Olympics to give a comparative picture. Just look at the figures.  Where Irundrua gets the idea that the Americans have collapsed is for any one to ponder. As you can see in the Tables, the Americans are very consistent- they are performing at exactly the same level as they have in the last two Olympics, of 2010 and 2014. In fact early this morning before I left home, I watched the Americans defeat Canada in Ice Hockey with virtually the last ball of a penalty shoot-out which the American keeper saved. So I think  USA may finish second overall in the tables, just below Norway as the winner. Canada on other hand has been sliding backwards from the high when it came first in 2010. This time it may finish 3rd, 4th, or even 5th.

 

The American performance should also be looked at in the context that winter sports are a minority sport in the USA, just like in most parts of the world. It is therefore no surprise that the countries with the colder climes, like the Nordic countries and Canada are good at it, because the natural environment supports winter sports. In countries where there is no winter, or very short winters like the USA, winter sports are a minority  and very expensive sport engaged in by only by children from very rich families. In the UK for eg, all winter sports are indoors, conducted  in specially built aquatic centres because we don't have snow or ice laden landscapes. To be a member of winter sports  clubs, you have to pay with an arm and a leg. I have an aquatic centre near where I live in Hemel Hempstead, but it costs £20 per hour session to attend; it is only the super rich who can afford to enrol their children to participate in winter sports- in a country that does not have natural snow or ice. So why should Irundrua be surprsied that a country like Norway, which has winter throughout the year and much of its countryside is snow-clad, should perform better in the winter sports than Uganda or Nigeria?

 

I am not surprised by Irundrua's stupidity. What I am surprised and disgusted about is why UAH owner Abbey Semuwambai should allow a moron or retard to turn his forum into a cess-pit of profanity and idiocy.

 

Here Below is Irundrua's banal diarrhea and the  Medal Tables. from current and previous years.

At average it takes 5-6 years to train a kid to contest in The Olympics. The kids that started the program January 20th 2017 simply cannot be in South Korea today. Thus the kids playing today were fully funded and trained under The Democrats. Now that is a very standard knowledge to those that never went to school, a part of which you are not, thus the burning of my gas for the last statement.

 

Friends, there is a reason Americans elected this government, they were tired of losing, it is very strange that a super power like United States has lost this badly in these Olympics, but when you look closely, they have been doing really bad since Obama got established, and do you know why? Because instead of investing into Americans, Obama was shipping money out to France for he is protecting the environment. I have a friend that is a pilot in the air force, these guys actually go to the scrap yard to torch parts off fighter jets to fix the jets they are flying today. That is how terrible was the Democrats under Obama. By the time Obama left office, Americans were actually losing more soldiers to accidents than on front line, due to poor equipment, for Obama saw it more fit to spend on Palestinians than fix the American fighting planes. And the true Obama picture is showing the sheer nakedness of United States in South Korea today. These idiots took in two air buses, they went in as usual "we are Americans" and Mike Pence juu yake. They are winning squat. And do you know why we are beating them?    -> Because we are the true North.

 

 

To those in the city and country, we are doing some well because unlike The Democrats we are spending in our kids. We spend in our kids than the Americans that eat the money to sacrifice their 14 year olds be shot in firkin classrooms.

 

Thus, allow me to wonder out loudly, how the hell have we allowed the Norwegians to raise their heads thus high? They all are as if they are on firkin weed. We need as a country to make Norwegians the national target, you see if we can beat the Norwegians, the Germanys can suffocate in the struggle. There is no way we can fail to be on top of these games, these are winter games for Christ sheiks. So now that the Americans are erased until when the kids funded by 45 start to show up on line, hey let us fly high and be the best by beating Norway. We need kids out of Nova Scotia, British Columbia send us some, Quebec we need those kids and Ontario will hand in a few, and we go to these games only targeting firkin Norway. We can do this trust me. Because we are the true North. And we have to beat Norway in two ways, we start with winning the highest medals, then we start to raise the quality, now that Vladimir Putin has interfered with the American players to lose this sadly in South Korea.

 

Super power my isle side.
