USplotted bid on Venezuela Prez Maduros life thwarted

first_imgCaracas: Venezuela’s socialist government says it has derailed a coup bid, claiming the United States, Colombia and Chile colluded in a plot to assassinate President Nicolas Maduro. The claim is the latest in a series by under-pressure Maduro, who is facing popular backlash at home over a failing economy and spiraling inflation, as well as increasing international isolation. The far-left leader is embroiled in a power struggle with Juan Guaido, the man the United States and scores of other countries recognize as Venezuela’s legitimate interim ruler.

We were in all the conferences,” he said, suggesting informers had infiltrated the alleged plotters — at least six of whom had been detained. In his televised speech, Rodriguez also accused opposition leader Juan Guaido of planning “a bloodbath.” Guaido for his part dismissed the coup claims as fiction, saying the media had “lost count” of how many times the same accusations had been repeated. Recognized by the United States and more than 50 other countries as interim president, Guaido said he would continue to call on the armed forces to abandon Maduro. Russia, one of the regime’s most important allies, said Wednesday that it had rotated out a team of military “technicians” it had sent to Venezuela to ensure the maintainance of military equipment and provide training to the Venezuelan military. Rodriguez accused Colombia’s Duque of being closely involved in the alleged plot, and implicated Chilean President Sebastian Pinera and US National Security Advisor John Bolton. Without referring directly to the charge, Colombia’s foreign minister, Carlos Holmes Trujillo, said his country would “continue to act through political and diplomatic means” in Venezuela. Rodriguez presented testimony from one of the detainees — Lieutenant Carlos Saavedra, whose “confession” revealed the plan envisaged the takeover of three military bases, including La Carlota air base in Caracas. Maduro, his wife Celia Flores, and top Socialist Party official Diosdado Cabello were to be assassinated, along with other figures, the government said. In his speech, Maduro briefly referred to an “Israeli group” he said was to carry out the killing. The plotters hoped to spring Raul Baduel, a former defense minister under late president Hugo Chavez, from jail to proclaim him president, Rodriguez said. Maduro demoted Baduel last year as part of a purge of senior military officers. Also purged was general Antonio Rivero, allegedly another leader of the coup bid. Maduro said he would seek the arrest and extradition from the Dominican Republic of a third former general, Eduardo Baez, who was also accused of involvement. The head of the National Assembly, Guaido proclaimed himself Venezuela’s interim president in January on the grounds Maduro’s 2018 re-election was illegitimate.last_img read more

Officials ponder easing mobility for doctors nurses between provinces

first_imgHALIFAX — Efforts to create regional licensing for health care professionals in Atlantic Canada could be the vanguard for similar changes nationally, a leading advocate says.The four East Coast premiers called this week for common licensing for doctors, nurses and other health professionals, saying allowing them to easily move between provinces would improve people’s access to care.The registrar of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador, Dr. Linda Inkpen, said work has actually been underway for a year to align licensing regimes in Atlantic Canada.Inkpen, who is also president of the Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada, said the regional work is an offshoot of an issue that has been on the national radar for at least a decade as issues around internal trade gained prominence.She said the issue has gained added impetus over the last few years.“Anything that we can do that enhances mobility of our physicians helps directly and indirectly the public and the patients whom we exist to serve,” said Inkpen.At the national level, Inkpen said ongoing talks have been focused on two areas — the streamlining of regular licensing for fully licensed doctors with no disciplinary history, and to help free up locum physicians, who move from province-to-province for fill-in work.“We are hopeful … that we will have come to an agreement if not in all colleges across Canada, certainly in some colleges, so that we can make that process a little easier for our physicians,” she said.Inkpen concedes it will take longer to get some form of agreement nationally, however, she believes something can be in place in Atlantic Canada sooner.“It’s going to take a little bit longer but we are talking months, we’re not talking years,” she said. “We are talking I would say within 12 months.”The national work is more complicated and will require “more than the colleges to sort it out” Inkpen said. She said provinces and territories will need to get more involved, because colleges are governed by 13 different pieces of legislation.Atlantic Canada’s premiers want to see movement to improve mobility across a range of professions.But they believe it’s especially important for health care workers such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists and physiotherapists, given the region faces challenges posed by an aging population and higher-than-average incidences of chronic diseases.Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil said it’s part of the puzzle to improve access to primary care in his province, where many people don’t have a family doctor.“One of the biggest complaints that we’ve heard around the whole process is how difficult it is to be allowed to practice in the province,” he said. “We want to provide some consistency within the region, and I would argue once we are able to do that it will probably go national.”Janet Hazelton, president of the Nova Scotia Nurses Union, said she has talked to a nurse in Alberta who wants to move east, but has been waiting for three months for a temporary licence.“I’m not sure why sometimes it takes so long,” said Hazelton of the time period it can take to work in another province.She points to Ontario, where she says registered nurses are currently being laid off.“They are laying off registered nurses and we (Nova Scotia) can’t hire enough. But if it’s going to take them three months to get a licence then that’s a deterrent.”She said harmonized and streamlined licensing would also help nurses who live in border areas and have to pay twice if they want to work in both provinces: “That’s a lot of money.”Dr. Sheila Marchant-Short, registrar for the College of Registered Nurses of Prince Edward Island, said the issue has the attention of national nursing bodies, and there are “certainly benefits to figuring something out.”“As an Atlantic group we haven’t had a really fulsome discussion yet,” she said. “So we will in a response to the Atlantic premiers, but we aren’t there yet.”Keith Doucette, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Lawyers of Rouse Avenue court complex in HC for recognition of bar

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court has sought a response of the Bar Council of Delhi (BCD) on a plea by a lawyer’s body seeking to be recognised as the bar association of the newly-opened court complex at Rouse Avenue here.Justice Vibhu Bakhru issued notice to the BCD seeking its stand on the plea by lawyers’ body Rouse Avenue Bar Associates for recognition. The court gave the council two weeks time to file its response and listed the matter for further hearing on July 24. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe petitioner-association, which claims to represent the lawyers practising at the new court complex, moved the high court after the BCD on April 3 rejected its request for issuance of Advocates Welfare Fund Stamps on the ground that it was not a recognised body. The court noted that since recognition has not yet been granted to the association, the BCD cannot be faulted for not issuing them the stamps. The BCD, on its part, opposed the association’s plea for recognition, saying that it has been the prevalent practice that the council holds the first elections at any newly set up court complex in the national capital for creating the bar association there. It said that if every group of lawyers was allowed to form a bar association at each court complex, then there would be numerous lawyers’ bodies which would create a lot of confusion. After hearing both sides, the court directed the BCD to indicate its stand on affidavit and ordered it to refrain from circulating any derogatory messages regarding the petitioner association.last_img read more

TSX drops 100 points Bank of Montreal falls 45 as earnings report

Traders are also cautious ahead of economic data later in the week that could give a better idea of where the Federal Reserve is headed in cutting back on stimulus measures.Bank of Montreal’s (TSX:BMO) annual net profit hit a record $4.2 billion in 2013. That included $1.088 billion of net income in the fourth quarter, which was up one per cent from a year earlier. Its adjusted net income fell two per cent from a year ago to $1.102 billion or $1.64 a share.That beat forecasts of $1.58 a share but Barclays observed that “BMO reported a $121-million gain in Wealth Management that is not recurring and will not likely be treated as core (earnings) in the market.”“This represents roughly 19 cents a share and would take BMO’s core number to $1.45, well below consensus.”BMO’s return on equity also dropped to 15 per cent versus 15.6 per cent. Its stock fell $3.28 or 4.46 per cent to $70.25. But prior to Tuesday morning, BMO stock was up more than 20 per cent from its 52-week low, leaving the shares vulnerable to a bit of profit taking.“It’s a small blip,” said Allan Small, senior investment adviser with Holliswealth.“It wasn’t anything earth shattering and so, when you have a run-up as we have seen, especially in the last couple of quarters of the main banks and you have an earnings report that doesn’t kind of jibe with the rest of the run-up, this is what you’re going to get.”The bank’s quarterly dividend will be increased by two cents to 76 cents per common share.The Canadian dollar was down 0.07 of a cent at 93.91 cents US a day before the Bank of Canada makes its next interest rate announcement.U.S. indexes were also weak as the Dow Jones industrials dropped 94.15 points to 15,914.62, the Nasdaq dipped 8.06 points to 4,037.2 and the S&P 500 slipped 5.75 points to 1,795.15.There is lot of U.S. economic data coming out this week, culminating with the release of the government’s employment report on Friday.A strong employment report would raise concerns that the Fed is set to start tapering its US$85 billion of monthly bond purchases that have kept U.S. interest rates low and persuaded many investors to seek higher returns in the stock market.Economists forecast that the American economy cranked out about 175,000 jobs in November, down 5,000 from October.The TSX financial sector lost 1.57 per cent. Other banks reporting this week and under selling pressure included CIBC (TSX:CM), which lost $1.04 to $90.34 while Scotiabank (TSX:BNS) declined $1.16 to $64.19.Industrials fell 1.4 per cent with Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) down $3.39 to $163.17.The gold sector was also a drag, down 1.37 per cent as February gold gave back $1.10 to US$1,220.80 an ounce. Goldcorp (TSX:G) lost 49 cents to C$22.25.The base metals sector was down 0.24 per cent with March copper was down one cent to US$3.17 a pound. First Quantum Minerals(TSX:FM) dropped 25 cents to C$17.The energy sector was the major gainer, ahead 0.3 per cent while oil prices were slightly higher in the wake of a stronger than expected reading on U.S. manufacturing Monday and ahead of a meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries in Vienna on Wednesday.The January crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange edged $2.22 higher to US$96.04 a barrel. Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) rose 65 cents to C$37.58.Elsewhere, Potash Corp. (TSX:POT) shares were up 11 cents to $33.82 after the fertilizer giant said it was cutting its workforce by about 18 per cent, affecting about 1,045 people. The Saskatoon-based company says the decision is necessary because of soft demand for potash and phosphates. read more

Ukraine a country on edge says UN deputy chief urging dialogue among

“While the situation in Kiev is stable, there have been disturbing reports from some parts of the country, primarily Crimea,” Mr. Eliasson said, briefing the Security Council by video from Kiev, where he has been since Monday after having been sent by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on an urgent mission to de-escalate a dangerous situation in Ukraine and assess conditions for a peaceful settlement of the crisis.Following months of political unrest, triggered by the Government’s decision last November not to sign an agreement on broader European integration, Kiev erupted in violent demonstrations and street clashes in late January, culminating with the removal by Parliament of President Viktor Yanukovych. Tensions have been mounting in the Crimea region, where additional Russian troops and armoured vehicles have reportedly been deployed.According to a note to correspondents issued this evening by a UN spokesperson in New York, Mr. Eliasson said Ukraine is “grappling with a series of fast-moving and serious challenges.” In Crimea, he cited examples such as blockades of Ukrainian military bases by armed elements with no insignias and attempts to intimidate international envoys, including the Secretary-General’s Special Advisor, Robert Serry, who was threatened yesterday by a number of unidentified men that demanded he leave the region. Mr. Eliasson said that in all of his meetings in Ukraine, he had underlined the urgent need for de-escalation and for a political solution to the country’s current crisis. Apart from a military de-escalation, he said that there is a need to end provocative rhetoric that has only served to heighten tensions. According to the note, he had called for meaningful dialogue among all key parties, and stressed that the UN remains ready to do its part to facilitate such dialogue. He emphasized that the Organization’s efforts are rooted in the UN Charter, in particular the principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity and of the peaceful settlement of disputes. He also underlined the importance of adhering to the principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As for his meetings, Mr. Eliasson said that he held talks with Ukrainian authorities, including the Acting President, the Prime Minister and the Acting Foreign Minister. He also met with civil society representatives, including Orthodox Church leaders, as well as members of the diplomatic community. Mr. Eliasson emphasized the need for unity, diversity and inclusion in Ukraine, and the importance that all parts of the country and all segments of the population have a sense of participation in building their future. He also noted that the Secretary-General remains actively engaged on the situation in Ukraine, reaching out to key international actors on the urgent need to find a political solution.The Deputy Secretary-General stated that the international community has been working on initiatives that will support the people of Ukraine and contribute to de-escalating the situation in the country. While in Ukraine, he consulted closely with the OSCE to determine how to the two organizations could best work in coordination to support human rights, monitor the security situation and address minority concerns, among other efforts. Mr. Eliasson also informed the Council that UN Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights, Ivan Šimonovic, had just arrived in Kiev, following a request by the Secretary-General to immediately travel to Ukraine. Mr. Šimonovic is set to visit the East, West and South of the country, including Crimea, to evaluate the current human rights situation. Finally, the Deputy UN chief underscored the need for a solution that will benefit all of the people of Ukraine and the region and ensure the maintenance of international peace and security. read more

Planning for Social 20

first_imgNova: Similar to putting together a balanced financial portfolio, selecting products that align with your aims and means is key. Users have begun to figure out which modes of interaction and storytelling appeal to them most. That includes identifying preferences for how they’d like to interact with the institutional accounts they follow. Social 2.0 will hopefully be about audiences and publishers capitalizing on the due diligence and takeaways produced in phase one. With any luck, the anticipated refocus will also allow for the plethora of clever yet niche social platforms to increase in usage and prominence.FOLIO: What has become most important in New York Magazine’s social media strategy—follower volume or interaction?Nova: Follower numbers are important, but they are only one part of the equation we use to evaluate the strength of our program. We view traffic and engagement as coexisting primary goals, with follower growth closely behind. It’s also critical to make sure that we’re not just recreating the nymag.com reader experience on social. We want to enhance it, and offer exclusive content that serves, in part, to validate our fans’ commitment to following us on social.FOLIO: What’s next for your social strategy development?Nova: Over the past year, we’ve collaborated with our integrated marketing and ad sales teams to create several dynamic social media activations for our clients.

The first wave of the social gold rush was about optics, i.e. to see and be seen on as many platforms as possible to make the point that you were present whether it made sense or not. By now, savvy users and companies have discerned that staking a claim is only part of the equation. If you’re not involved in the conversation in a way that is meaningful and relevant it needlessly saps energy and ROI.

UAA names economics lab after Nobel laureate Vernon Smith

first_imgVernon Smith, 2002 Nobel laureate in Economics (Photo courtesy of UAA)Nobel laureate economist Vernon Smith spent three years at the University of Alaska Anchorage late in his career, and UAA has now named the centerpiece of its experimental economics program after him.Listen nowSmith was a C student in high school, with sloppy handwriting. No one else in his family had been to college. He grew up on a farm in Kansas and helped build B-29 bombers as a teenager during World War II.But Smith worked hard at a local community college, passed the entrance exam at Cal Tech and started reading about economics.“I was really amazed, here are the social sciences, you could do social science in a rigorous way,” Smith said.Smith taught at universities around the country and developed methods for conducting laboratory experiments in economics. Essentially, he created tools that didn’t exist before that have allowed for a much greater understanding of how complex systems and markets are likely to behave in the real world.“So you can do experiments to answer policy questions,” Smith said. “But the first job is to understand that world.”For Smith, understanding and getting to know Alaska started in the mid-1960s, when he visited for seven weeks of camping and fishing.“You know, kind of fell in love with Alaska on that summer trip,” Smith said.Smith returned over the years, and he was visiting Anchorage when – decades later in the early 2000s – a UAA professor asked if he’d be interested in being the first ever Rasmuson Chair of Economics. Smith agreed, but then something happened: That fall he won the Nobel in Economics.Of course, that was great for Smith. But it worried UAA.“Well they thought I wouldn’t come, thought, now, you know, ‘It’s probably off because he’ll be so busy,’ but I didn’t- I still wanted to come,” Smith said. “It was something I wanted to do, and I figured I’d just make time for it.”So with Nobel prize in hand, Smith came to UAA and laid the groundwork for the experimental economics program and the lab there that is now named after him.Over the years, with his connection to Alaska, Smith also watched the state’s own grand experiment play out, as it used its oil wealth to create a permanent fund. He said the fund was a great idea, and a really great model for other resource-rich states or countries.But Smith says 100 percent of that oil tax revenue should’ve gone to the fund, with an income tax to pay for state government. He says Alaskans have so far gotten a “free ride.”If there were a more direct connection between Alaskans’ income and how government is funded, Smith says more people would be more engaged with policy decisions and government officials.“I mean, people think, ‘What difference does it make? You just put it in one pocket and take it out of the other,’” Smith said. “But it goes through some sort of a ballot process, you see, so that governments don’t get access to that free. They’ve got to convince the people that they’re willing to pay taxes in order to support their programs. It’s a big difference.”At this point, years down the road, Smith says an income tax will be a hard sell. And with the Legislature set to again take up the issue, it could be another Alaska economics experiment still playing out.last_img read more

BNP doesnt know if Jamaat defects alliance

first_img.Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami is considering severing its two decades of political alliance with Bangladesh Nationalist party, sources in the alliance have indicated.The Jamaat leaders were learned to have discussed the matter in a few recent meetings, but the major alliance partner BNP or other parties in the 20-party alliance said they are still in dark about any such decision by the Jamaat.Jamaat’s policymaking body Majlish-e-Shura convened meeting twice in January and February where they discussed about starting afresh as a socio-cultural organisation.The party has also changed its constitution to that end, according to party sources. Jamaat leaders, however, are in no way making any public comment about such decisions.Some BNP leaders said they are yet to get any indication from the Jamaat about its exit from the alliance. The Jamaat has not yet shared any such thinking in two meetings of the 20-party alliance following the 30 December election.“I’ve learnt about such a development through the news media. They didn’t inform us anything like that . The BNP doesn’t know anything about it,” said Nazrul Islam Khan, BNP standing committee member and coordinator of the 20-party alliance.Another component of the 20-party alliance, Bangladesh Jatiya Party’s (BJP) chairperson Andaleeve Rahman Partha, too, said they do not know anything about it.He, however, maintained that their alliance would not be affected, should the Jamaat leave.Jamaat’s central executive committee member Ahsanul Mahbub Zobair told Prothom Alo that they discussed about many things in their internal meetings but did not reach any decision.Terming the alliance with the BNP as electoral, Zobair said the Jamaat is now giving full concentration on its own party as the alliance has decided not to take part in any election under the current government.The BNP had formed the 4-party alliance with Jamaat and two other parties including Jatiya Party of HM Ershad in 1999 and which swept the general elections in 2001 although Ershad quit much before the polls. The alliance was extended more than once later with Jamaat remaining a vital component of it.The alliance was defeated heavily by the Awami League-led grand alliance in 2008 general elections.Subsequently, the top leaders of Jamaat were convicted for alleged crimes against humanity during the 1971 liberation war and the party lost its registration with the election commission (EC) by a court order.Since then, the BNP was being pressured by the civil society members and even by the ruling AL to do away with the Jamaat. The BNP-Jamaat combine, however, remains unscathed even after the BNP’s joining of the jatiya Oikya Front led by elderly politician Kamal Hossain.The BNP has long been maintaining that the alliance with Jamaat is not an ideological one; it’s merely electoral.After BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia was jailed in February last year, the relations between two parties start souring which culminated in the Sylhet city corporation elections after the Jamaat filed independent candidate defying the BNP and alliance decision.In recently held eleventh general election, a total of 22 Jamaat leaders contested with the BNP’s electoral symbol ‘sheaf of paddy’. But the Jamaat was unsatisfied with the BNP over seat sharing.After the election, Jatiya Oikya Front leader Kamal Hossain told an Indian newspaper that he would not have formed the alliance with the BNP, had he known that Jamaat would contest the polls under the umbrella of BNP.As the talks of Jamaat’s quitting of the BNP alliance hit the political arena for last several days, some BNP leaders and pro-BNP intellectuals seem to be happy about such development, if it is true.Former vice chancellor of Dhaka University Emajuddin Ahmed and Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder Zafrullah Chowdhury expressed satisfaction over such development.BNP standing committee member Mahbubur Rahman thinks it will be good for his party if Jamaat finally depart from the alliance.“I always think that the BNP should not take Jamaat in any kind of alliance,” Mahbubur told Prothom Alo.* This report, originally published in Prothom ALo Bangla online, has been rewritten in English by Galib Ashraflast_img read more

Spring Kicks Off Early for Some Housing Markets

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News The “spring” buying season does not necessarily wait for spring to arrive. Trulia’s latest look at the U.S. housing market shows homebuyer interest in January and February is up 2 percent from the annual average since 2011, a trend that has paved the way for robust March-to-July buying interest.Along Florida’s west coast and in the Phoenix/Tucson area, pre-March buying is already in full swing, said Jed Kolko, Trulia’s chief economist. Home search activity in Cape Coral-Fort Myers is 22 percent higher than the national average in the first two months of the year, and activity in the Northport-Sarasota-Bradenton metro is 17 percent higher. Tucson, West Palm Beach, and the Daytona Beach area also are above 10 percent over national averages.El Paso, Fort Lauderdale, Phoenix, Kansas City, and Charleston round out the top 10 metros where early-year buying activity is hottest.Unsurprisingly, early-winter search activity is slowest in harsher climates, particularly in the upper Northeast. But activity is surprisingly slow in some warm-winter environments, such as Honolulu and Houston, Trulia reported. These markets tend to see much-improved activity as March and April roll in.According to Kolko, these delayed markets do not necessarily see delays due to weather. Almost across the board, activity is slow between Christmas and spring in pricier metros, such as coastal California and Hawaii. Additionally, lower-cost metros have an early start to the housing season even within metros, Kolko said.Search activity picks up more at the start of the year in more affordable neighborhoods than in more expensive neighborhoods, generally regardless of the metro’s overall activity. Meanwhile, higher-priced neighborhoods tend to have slightly shorter house-hunting seasons that pick up in earnest from March through June.Any dips, however, are in the mid-to-low single digits.”No markets are as far below the annual average for home search activity in January and February as the west coast of Florida is ahead,” Kolko said.Indeed, according to Trulia, no downswing in activity is worse than 5 percent lower than the national average, this figure occurring in the Cambridge, Massachusetts, region and in Seattle. Long Island, Honolulu, San Francisco (three historically pricey metros), Syracuse, Houston, Buffalo, Rochester, and Hartford are all 3 to 4 percent lower than the national average.Kolko chalked up the increased early-year activity in less-pricey markets to investors looking for foreclosures.”Their housing demand is less seasonal,” Kolko said. “Investors tend not to hibernate as much as conventional buyers do in the winter months.” Share Trulia 2015-02-06 Scott_Morgancenter_img February 6, 2015 519 Views Spring Kicks Off Early for Some Housing Marketslast_img read more

on Thursday suspended judgment on the criminal charge preferred against the Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki by the Federal Government The Justice Danladi Umar-led tribunal announced its decision to “tarry for awhile” in the matter on a day both the Federal Government and Saraki appeared through their lawyers to adopt their final briefs of argument for judgment to be delivered in the case The CCT Chairman Umar said the tribunal was hesitant to take further step in the case in view of two pending appeals before the Supreme Court He however asked both the prosecution and the defence lawyers to address the panel on the propriety or otherwise of the tribunal proceeding to deliver judgment on a subject matter that is already pending before the apex court “This matter was fixed for today to enable parties to adopt their final written addresses However there is an issue that this tribunal me and my colleague decided we should raise suo-motu “Even though the defendant previously wrote to draw attention of this tribunal to two appeals on this matter that are pending before the Supreme Court we were surprised that counsel kept silent on that letter and proceeded to open his defence “However at this juncture we feel it is germane to call on the prosecution and defence to address us on the way forward since issues have been canvassed before the Supreme Court “You should address us on whether it is not proper for this tribunal to await the decision of the Supreme Court on issues that parties have raised with respect to counts 4 5 and 6 of the charge before us “We want to know if it will be right to proceed and deliver judgment in this case not minding the appeals filed by both parties” Umar stated In his response the Federal Government’s lawyer Mr Rotimi Jacobs SAN urged the tribunal to go ahead with the case contending that suspending further proceeding would amount to granting Saraki’s desire He said: “Ordinarily we would have said your lordships should tarry awhile to protect the authority and integrity of the highest court but the prosecution will urge the tribunal to proceed inview of the position of the law today “Section 306 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act ACJA enjoins the court not to entertain any application for stay and the Supreme Court has also interpreted that section in Metuh vs FRN delivered on June 9 2017 SC/457/2015 “The appeal before the Supreme Court is not an issue of reference as envisaged in section 305 of the ACJA “We took this position bearing in mind that the defendant wrote a letter on January 19 2018 wherein he notified the tribunal of the pending appeal “He requested the court to defer hearing as any decision will render the outcome of the appeal at Supreme Court nurgatory and foist a fait-acompli on the parties “But since the same defendant proceeded to open his defence to the charges we urge my lords to also go ahead with the case” Saraki’s lawyer Mr Kanu Agabi SAN commended the CCT panel for acknowledging the superiority of the apex court Agabi said: “This is the initiative of the tribunal not ours so we commend you for that “How will we react tomorrow if the Supreme Court ask us why we went ahead to litigate on a matter that is already pending before it what will be our answer “We urge my lords to stay this proceeding and let us go back to the Supreme Court” The General Overseer of
