Report: POGOs “highly vulnerable” to money laundering

first_img The Phillippine Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) has issued a report claiming that Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs) and their service providers are “highly vulnerable” to money laundering.The AMLC listed a range of factors that contributed to the weakness. These factors include a high level of cash-based transactions; weak or deficient anti-money laundering (AML) regulations and a high level of anonymity for customers and operators.The AMLC said that the high amount of cash and cheque transactions involving POGOs were of particular concern. These transactions are difficult to trace, making them especially convenient for money launderers.“Transactions of internet-based casinos and [service providers] reveal a significant level of use of cash, which is susceptible to money laundering, considering that the ultimate source and the beneficiary of the funds are difficult to determine,” the report said. “Also, cash-based transactions tend to obscure the audit trail. There is also a high level of use of cheque-related transactions.“Cash- and cheque-based transactions are considered unusual as these deviate from the business framework operations of internet-based casinos.”The AMLC said that, upon attempting to conduct on-site compliance checks for 59 POGOs, it was discovered that the registered office addresses of the companies, their local gaming agents and authorised representatives given to the country’s regulator, the Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) were in fact false. No compliance officer for any of the 59 could be located or contacted, while none had teams dedicated to preventing money laundering and the financing of terrorism.The report added that, while there was concern over money laundering involving POGOs, the greater threat involved their service providers, which are not subject to the same AML regulations as POGOs. However, added, enforcement of AML regulations covering POGOs is often low because of “jurisdictional issues.”The AMLC said that many of these service providers were flagged for “highly substantial forex transactions” and further verification is needed to determine if this is related to gambling, or to criminal activity.The sector’s vunerability to terrorism financing, however, was “generally low”, it noted. There was little concrete evidence that internet casinos were used to generate or launder terrorist funds, based on available records.The report recommended that casino regulators in the Philippines should issue AML compliance guidelines for Internet-based casinos, as well as providing training programmes for POGOs and their service providers. To raise public awareness of potential money laundering practices and tactics, it continued, the Philippines should publish a list of indiciators for citizens to watch out for.In addition, the report recommended that violations of AML rules should warrant the cancellation of gambling licenses.Last month, The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) has reported an 11.7% year-on-year increase in gaming revenue for 2019, resulting in its total tax and corporate social responsibility contribution for the year rising above PHP56bn for the year.Throughout 2019, the Philippines pressure from China to limit or ban online gambling, following PAGCOR’s decision to impose a temporary halt on the issuing of new Philippines Offshore Gaming Operator (POGO) licences in August 2019.However, this appears unlikely to be expanded into a full prohibition on igaming, with President Rodrigo Duterte saying that POGOs were an important source of jobs and tax for the country. Duterte has since repeated this in 2020, amid growing public and political anger over corruption and criminality in the country’s gambling industry.China looks set to continue its efforts to crack down on igaming in 2020, warning in January that it would target countries from which operators targeting players in the country are based and suggesting in March that a blacklist for unlicenced gambling sites could be on its way.

Best shares to buy now: 2 FTSE 100 stocks I’m buying

first_img I think some of the best shares to buy now are located in the FTSE 100. And I’m putting my money where my mouth is. Over the past few weeks, I have been buying three blue-chip stocks, which now form the foundations of my portfolio. Best shares to buy nowThe first company on my list is Reckitt (LSE: RKT). This enterprise has reported strong sales growth during the pandemic.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…During the first quarter, revenue rose 4.1% on a like-for-like basis. A strong performance in the group’s hygiene division, which accounts for around 80% of revenue, helped drive overall sales higher.What’s more, thanks to increased investment in e-commerce over the past year, online sales were 24% higher. As a result, online sales now account for 13% of overall revenues. Going forward, the company is planning to invest £2bn in research development to discover new products. I think that investment should help drive sales growth for years to come.The company is also looking for buyers for its underperforming Chinese infant child nutrition business, which has been a consistent underperformer.Based on these growth and restructuring initiatives, I have been buying the stock for my portfolio today. One critical risk hanging over the stock is debt. At 2.4 times underlying cash profits, debt is a bit on the high side, I feel. A sudden increase in interest rates or increase in costs could impact debt affordability. This may cause problems across the company.Another risk is the possibility that the Chinese infant nutrition business does not find any buyers. That could leave the company with this struggling division. Despite these risks and challenges, I think this FTSE 100 consumer goods business is one of the best shares to buy now. That’s why I have been adding it to my portfolio recently. FTSE 100 growthAnother stock I have been buying his FTSE 100 insurance group Admiral (LSE: ADM). This is not the largest insurance company in the country, but it is the most efficient. It has been able to leverage technology and its understanding of customers to improve customer service and efficiency. According to its employees, the business is also one of the best places to work in the UK. As well as this accolade, the company is also incredibly well managed. It has recently been diversifying away from the mature UK insurance market. The group is expanding into loans and the car insurance market overseas. Overall, I think this is one of the best shares to buy now, considering its potential. Admiral has conquered the UK insurance market. It’s now focusing its efforts overseas. Of course, it’s unlikely to be plain sailing for the group as it tries to conquer new markets. For example, many UK businesses have struggled to enter America.Admiral may be no different. This could be the most considerable risk the company faces today. An overzealous expansion programme could lump the group with significant liabilities and costs, holding back growth. Even after taking this risk into account, I have recently bought more of the FTSE 100 stock for my portfolio. I continue to believe this is one of the best shares to buy now, considering its growth potential.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Washington, DC [Anglican Communion News Service] Pope Francis has apologized for behavior towards Christians from non-Roman Catholic churches that “has not reflected Gospel values.” The Pope made his comments during a Vespers service in the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls in Rome last night attended by the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Representative to the Holy See, Archbishop Sir David Moxon.The service was held to mark the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and was also attended by Metropolitan Gennadios of Sassima from the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. At the end of the service, the Pope invited Metropolitan Gennadios and Archbishop David to join him in blessing the congregation.On its Facebook page, the Anglican Centre in Rome described the homily and the joint blessing as “very powerful words and a very powerful gesture.”“In this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, we must always keep in mind that there cannot be an authentic search for Christian unity without trusting fully in the Father’s mercy,” Pope Francis said. “We ask first of all for forgiveness for the sins of our divisions, which are an open wound in the Body of Christ.“As Bishop of Rome and pastor of the Catholic Church, I want to ask for mercy and forgiveness for the behavior of Catholics towards Christians of other Churches which has not reflected Gospel values.“At the same time, I invite all Catholic brothers and sisters to forgive if they, today or in the past, have been offended by other Christians. We cannot cancel out what has happened, but we do not want to let the weight of past faults continue to contaminate our relationships. God’s mercy will renew our relationships.”Today, Archbishop Sir David Moxon said that the Pope’s words and gesture “immediately challenges Christians who aren’t Roman Catholic to respond in the same way, asking for forgiveness for the wrongs we have done and the wounds we have inflicted on the body of Christ.”He continued: “This mutual confession automatically brings forth a sense of forgiveness, grace, and hope and we can be closer than we were before because of this. Such a movement of grace is indeed a blessing we can all share.”In his homily, Pope Francis spoke of the need for evangelism, saying: “The mission of the whole people of God is to announce the marvelous works of the Lord, first and foremost the Pasqual mystery of Christ, through which we have passed from the darkness of sin and death to the splendor of His new and eternal life.“In light of the Word of God which we have been listening to, and which has guided us during this Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we can truly affirm that all of us, believers in Christ, have been called to proclaim the mighty works of God.“Beyond the differences which still separate us, we recognize with joy that at the origin of our Christian life there is always a call from God Himself. We can make progress on the path to full visible communion between us Christians not only when we come closer to each other, but above all as we convert ourselves to the Lord, who through His grace, chooses and calls us to be His disciples.“And converting ourselves means letting the Lord live and work in us. For this reason, when Christians of different Churches listen to the Word of God together and seek to put it into practice, they make important steps towards unity.“It is not only the call which unites us, but we also share the same mission to proclaim to all the marvelous works of God. Like St Paul, and like the people to whom St Peter is writing, we too cannot fail to announce God’s merciful love which has conquered and transformed us.“While we are moving towards full communion among Christians, we can already develop many forms of cooperation to aid the spread of the Gospel. By walking and working together, we realise that we are already united in the name of the Lord.”The full text of Pope Francis’ homily can be read on the website of Vatican Radio.

This building is located close to the city of Buin, in the pre-Andean central region, and is surrounded by a landscape of dry hills dominated by pines and quillayes trees. The site presents a fairly steep slope and offers spectacular views of the valley to the west. The aim of this project is to create a modern, yet fairly rustic looking house that merges seamlessly with its surroundings.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe strategy for this project is essentially topographic: the first step would consist in excavating a platform onto which communal areas would sit – entrance hall, kitchen, living-room, dining-room and study. Bedrooms would then be added onto a second, raised platform which would sit at an angle compared to the first platform in order to provide a better view of the valley.Save this picture!© Midas / Pablo BlancoThis platform combination constitutes a natural adaptation to the topography, allowing the house to blend with the surrounding landscape. This is further emphasized by the earthy appearance of the exterior walls, through a mix of mortar and coloured soil. Floors are made out of baked clay and doors out of demolition wood. The retaining wall that supports the public platform is covered with stones obtained from the initial excavation process, whilst the roofs are protected with gravel and xeriscaping plants.Save this picture!Floor PlanMost notably, the intersection of both platforms creates a two-storey hall crossed by a wooden bridge.Save this picture!© Midas / Pablo BlancoProject gallerySee allShow lessRegistration Open: European Award for Architectural Heritage Intervention AADIPAArchitecture NewsRIBA To Open Chapter In IndiaArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeChauriye Stäger ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBuinHousesChilePublished on December 23, 2014Cite: “Los Morros House / Chauriye Stäger Arquitectos ” 23 Dec 2014.

Union of India through Ministry of Home Affairs, State of Uttar Pradesh, D.M. Varanasi, Senior Superintendent of Police, Varanasi, U.P. Sunni Central Waqf Board, Committee of Management Anjuman Intazamia Masajid and Board of Trustees Kashis Vishwanath Temple are the respondents in the matter. The relief sought by the plaintiffs in the suit is primarily for declaring the devotees of Goddess Gauri, Lord Hanuman, Lord Ganeshji, Nandiji and Lord Visheshwar to be entitled to have darshan, pooja and worship rituals within the area in dispute. According to the suit, every citizen has a fundamental right to perform pooja, worship and rituals according to the tenets of his religion within the ambit of Article 25 and any “obstacle” created before 26th January 1950 has become null and void by virtue of Article 13(1). Therefore, the plea states: “An idol worshipper cannot complete his pooja and gain spiritual advantages without having objects of worship. Any hindrance/ obstacle created in performance of pooja, is denial of right to religion guaranteed under Article 25 of the Constitution of India.” Moreover, according to the plaintiffs, the said ancient temple was desecrated and damaged in the year 1669 under the orders of Aurangzeb which the suit terms as “one of the most cruel Rulers of India” claimed by the muslim community to be part of the Gyanvapi mosque. “It is historically proved that in 1585 (Fifteen Eighty five) Raja Todar Mal, the finance Minister of Akbar, who was Governor of Jaunpur, had re-established and reconstructed a magnificent Lord Shiva Temple at its original place consisting of a central sanctum sanctorum (Garbh Griha) surrounded by Eight mandaps and pavilions, which is known as old temple.” The plea states. The plea also claims that according to Puranik ordains, the Pooja and worship of Goddess Gauri is “compulsory to achieve the fruit of worship of lord vishwanath.” Moreover, according to the plaintiffs it is contended that the devotees have been worshipping the daily pooja at the disputed place which was restricted in the 1990 during the Aayodhya movement by the UP government “to appease Muslims”. “That Aurangzeb one of the cruelest Islamic ruler was the champion in destruction of Hindu temples. He had issued ‘Farmaans’ in the year 1669 (Sixteen Sixty Nine) to destroy many temples including Kashi and Mathura, which were prominently worshipped by Hindus. The administration complied with the order and demolished a portion of temple of the Adi Visheshwar at Varanasi and later on a construction was raised which they alleged ‘Gyanvapi Mosque’ but they could not change the religious charter of Hindu temple as the idol of Goddess Shringar Gauri, Lord Ganesh and other associate deities continued in the same building complex.” The plea states. Denying the contention that the said property ever belonged to the Waqf board, the plea alleges that neither the historical books written during the Mughal regime nor the Muslim historians have ever claimed that Aurangzeb after demolishing the temple structure of Adi Visheshwar had created any Waqf or any member of Muslim community or Ruler was dedicated such property to Waqf. “Parliament has no power to make any law which takes away or abridges the rights conferred by Article 25 of the Constitution of India. Section 4 of the Act infringes the right to religion of Hindus as their right to remedy to approach the court has been taken away by Places of Worship Act, 1991 and therefore, Section 4 (four) of the Act is ultra vires and void.” The plea states.The plaintiffs further submit “This place is sacred for Hindus from the time immemorial. The Temple existing thereat was demolished by Muslim invaders. It is submitted that Hindus cannot be compelled to suffer mental and spiritual, shock continuously and same is bound to affect the worldly and spiritual life of the masses for swallowing the tyrannical, wicked and cruel act of invaders.” The following reliefs are sought by the plaintiffs: 1. Pass a decree in the nature of declaration declaring that the worshippers are entitled to have Darshan, Pooja and Worship of deities within the area. 2. That the entire disputed are belongs to the deity Asthan Lord Adi Visheshwar s situated at Dashashwamedh in the heart of City of Varanasi. 3. Pass a decree in the nature of perpetual injunction against defendants prohibiting them, and their workers, agents, officers, officials and every person acting under them from interfering with, or raising any objection or obstruction in the construction of New Temple building after demolishing and removing the existing buildings and structures etc, situated thereat, in so far as it may be necessary are expedient to do so for the said purpose. 4. To restore pooja and worship of Goddess Gauri Shringarji, Goddess Maa Ganga, Lord Hanuman, Lord Ganeshji, Nandiji alongwith Lord Adi Visheswar and make appropriate arrangement for Darshan and Pooja by worshippers and maintain law and order situation.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Unity and pride

first_imgThey walked onto the podium wearing black socks and no shoes, to symbolise black poverty, and the badges of the Olympic Project for Human Rights. As the Star Spangled Banner began to play in honour of Smith’s victory, the pair turned to face the Stars and Stripes being hoisted to their right. Each then closed his eyes, bowed his head and raised a single, black gloved hand into air for the duration of the anthem. Neither reacted to the increasingly loud booing of the 70,000 strong crowd at the Estadio Olimpico Universitario. The pair left the arena in silence, stopping only to once more raise their gloved hands just before exiting. It was a symbolic gesture of genius. During the Olympic victory ceremony, signifying the pinnacle of fair play and equal, honest competition, as the two best known symbols of the United States were simultaneously unfurled, the protest of two men representing the US delivered an awesomely powerful statement that in the US fair play and equal, honest competition were not at work to an audience of 400 million people around the world. Smith’s performances throughout the event had been outstanding. He broke the Olympic record in his first heat, and, after Peter Norman had pushed down the record further, posted another quickest ever time during the third round. In the final, he demolished both the rest of the field and the world record. Despite raising his arms in triumph metres from the finish, he crossed in 19.83 seconds, becoming the first man under 20 seconds and posting a world record that would hold for more than a decade. Carlos and Norman crossed in 20.0, completing the fastest 200m race in Olympic history. The bravery of Smith and Carlos’ protest is hard to fully appreciate today, without an awareness of the hostility of the sports establishment (and much of US society in general) to their cause. Racial tension in sport was fierce in 1968: that year Muhammad Ali was stripped of his heavyweight title for refusing the draft and the Olympic Project for Human Rights (of which Smith, Carlos and other prominent Olympians were members) had seriously considered a black boycott of the games. In view of this, US track coaches Payton Jordan and Stan Wright repeatedly issued statements declaring that there would be “no trouble whatsoever”. Smith and Carlos’ action saw them suspended from the US team and expelled from the Olympic village on the charge of bringing politics into sport. Once home, they faced widespread criticism from sections of the media (the Los Angeles Times described their action as a “Nazi-like salute”) and even death threats. We can be thankful that today, Smith and Carlos are commended, not ostracised for their actions. In 1998, the pair were honoured to commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of their protest. Other accolades have poured in: Smith was inducted into the USA Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1978, Carlos in 2003; Smith is now a university professor, while Carlos received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater. But their actions should serve as a reminder that sporting events are not isolated from the world around them. This remains as relevant today as it was in 1968, with cricket tours to Zimbabwe and the Beijing Olympics. One can only hope that Smith and Carlos’ actions will inspire some of their successors to attempt to make the same impact they had.Thirty seven years ago last Sunday Tommie Smith and John Carlos created one of the proudest moments in the history of sport. Their spectacular silent protest during the medal ceremony for the 200m sprint at the Mexico Olympics became the most recognisable symbol of the Civil Rights movement in the US. Smith and Carlos had gained the attention of the world with athletic performances of true champions, and they used the platform they had won to make the most positive impact they could on their society, despite the greatest opposition the world’s sporting administration could muster. So significant was the event that in her recent book ‘Not the Triumph but the Struggle’ Amy Bass argued it was a defining moment not only in the Civil Rights movement but in the whole history of the African-American athlete. Smith and Carlos’ protest was exquisitely carried out.ARCHIVE: 2nd week MT 2005last_img read more
