(Source: Reuters) Related News Philippine lawmakers have moved to cut the budget of the nation’s human rights commission to $20 and impeach the Supreme Court chief justice in what critics on Wednesday labelled part of a slide towards dictatorship under President Rodrigo Duterte.The twin votes in the House of Representatives added to a growing climate of fear that Duterte is determined to silence anyone critical of his war on drugs which has claimed thousands of lives and led rights groups to warn of a crime against humanity Duterte directly drew a link between Tuesday night’s vote to cut the Commission on Human Rights’ annual budget from 678 million pesos ($13 million) to 1000 pesos and its investigations of the drug war killings and related criticism by its chairman “He had it coming” Duterte told reporters late Tuesday referring to commission chairman Jose Gascon “They only gave him 1000 pesos (about $20) because Congress is angry” The commission is one of several independent government bodies set up by the constitution to check the power of the executive branch which controls the country’s police and military forces The Supreme Court is meant to be another safeguard Duterte’s allies in the lower house’s justice committee on Wednesday also voted to impeach its chief justice after determining corruption allegations against her had substance The chief justice Maria Lourdes Sereno has been another critic of the drug war She wrote Duterte a letter last year expressing concern over him publicly naming seven judges as being involved in the drug trade warning it made them vulnerable to being killed Duterte responded by threatening to declare martial law if Sereno continued to interfere in his drug war Should the entire house endorse the justice committee’s findings against Sereno the Senate would convene as an impeachment court The Senate still has to review and endorse the vote to slash the rights commission’s budget The Senate is also dominated by Duterte allies but it has proved more independent than the lower house and it could still over-rule the moves against the rights commission and Sereno Nevertheless critics warned of authoritarian rule under Duterte — a self-described socialist who has repeatedly praised late Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos and Russian President Vladimir Putin “This leads us on a direct path to dictatorship” Senator Francis Pangilinan leader of the Liberal Party the country’s main opposition group said in response to Tuesday’s vote Teodoro Casino a former House member representing the left wing Bayan Muna

Associated Press | Jerusalem | Updated: November 19 2014 4:02 pm Israel vowed harsh retaliation Tuesday for a Palestinian attack that killed five people Related News Israel vowed harsh retaliation Tuesday for a Palestinian attack that killed five people and left blood-smeared prayer books and shawls on the floor of a synagogue in Jerusalem – an assault that sharply escalated already-high tensions after weeks of religious violence The attack during morning prayers in the west Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Nof was carried out by two Palestinian cousins wielding meat cleavers knives and a handgun They were shot to death by police after the deadliest assault in the holy city since 2008 Four of the dead were rabbis and one was a police officer who died of his wounds hours after the attack Three of the rabbis were born in the United States and the fourth was born in England although all held dual Israeli citizenship Five others were wounded Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the attack the first time he has done so in the wave of deadly violence against Israelis But he also called for an end to Israeli “provocations” surrounding Jerusalem’s shrines that are sacred to both Muslims and Jews President Barack Obama called the attack “horrific” and without justification urging cooperation from both sides to ease tensions and adding that too many Israelis and Palestinians have died in recent months Tuesday’s attack however appeared to mark a turning point with the gruesome scene in a house of worship shocking a nation long accustomed to violence The government released a photo of a meat cleaver it said came from the crime scene Government video showed blood-soaked prayer books and prayer shawls in the synagogue A pair of glasses lay under a table and thick streaks of blood smeared the floor “I saw people lying on the floor blood everywhere” said Yosef Posternak who was at the synagogue in the quiet neighborhood that has a large community of English-speaking immigrants “People were trying to fight with (the attackers) but they didn’t have much of a chance” Posternak told Israel Radio In one of Israel’s first acts of retaliation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the demolitions of the homes of the attackers But halting further violence could prove to be a tough challenge as police confront a new threat: Lightly armed assailants from annexed east Jerusalem who hold residency rights that allow them to move freely throughout the country Netanyahu condemned the deaths of the “innocent and pure Jews” In a nationally televised address he accused Abbas of inciting the recent violence and said the Palestinian leader’s condemnation of the attack was insufficient Hamas the militant Palestinian group that runs the Gaza Strip praised the attack In Gaza dozens celebrated in the streets with some offering trays full of candy The US-born victims were identified as Moshe Twersky 59 Aryeh Kupinsky 43 and Kalman Levine 55 The Israeli Foreign Ministry said the British man was Avraham Goldberg 68 who immigrated to Israel in 1993 It described the four as “rabbis” an honorific title in the ultra-Orthodox world given to men who are considered pious and learned Twersky a native of Boston was the head of the Toras Moshe Yeshiva a seminary for English-speaking students He was the son of Rabbi Isador Twersky founder of Harvard University’s Center for Jewish Studies and a grandson Rabbi Joseph B Soloveitchik a luminary in the world of modern Orthodox Jewry Thousands of people attended a joint funeral for Kupinsky Levine and Goldberg before sundown- held outside the synagogue where they were killed In recent weeks Jerusalem has seen its worst sustained bout of violence since a Palestinian uprising a decade ago Palestinian assailants have carried out a pair of deadly attacks by ramming their cars into crowded train stations while a gunman shot and seriously wounded a Jewish activist who has campaigned for greater access to the holy site The hilltop compound in Jerusalem’s Old City has been at the heart of the tensions It is revered by Jews as the Temple Mount the site of the ancient Hebrew temples For Muslims it is the Noble Sanctuary home to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the iconic gold-topped Dome of the Rock Under a longstanding arrangement Jews are permitted to visit but not to pray A growing number of visits by Jewish worshippers many who seek the right to pray there has drawn Muslim accusations that Israel is secretly trying to take over the site and sparked violent clashes between young Palestinians and Israeli police Netanyahu has repeatedly said he will not change that arrangement but the violence has spread beyond Jerusalem with deadly stabbings in Tel Aviv and the West Bank last week while the fatal shooting of a young Arab protester in northern Israel by police – apparently as he was walking away from an officer – has added to the tensions Late Tuesday several hundred Jewish youths marched through downtown Jerusalem blocking traffic and chanting “Death to Arabs” Police reported at least 10 arrests Police identified the synagogue attackers as Ghassan and Oday Abu Jamal cousins from the Jabal Mukaber neighborhood in east Jerusalem Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the assailants were killed in a shootout with police that left one officer critically wounded He said police were still trying to determine how the men had chosen their target Mohammed Zahaikeh a social activist in Jabal Mukaber said he did not know whether the cousins were politically active He said Ghassan was 27 married with two young children and worked in a clothing store Oday 21 was not married and was an interior decorator He said both men were quiet and residents were surprised by the attack Clashes later broke out outside the assailants’ home where dozens of police officers had converged Residents hurled stones at police who responded with tear gas and stun grenades Residents said 14 members of the Abu Jamal family were arrested The violence has created a special security challenge for Israel Where Palestinian violence has traditionally been carried out by organized militant groups based in the West Bank or Gaza most of the recent attacks have been done by perpetrators from east Jerusalem acting on their own Israel captured east Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and later annexed the area while the Palestinians claim it as their capital Although the annexation is not internationally recognized the more than 200000 Arab residents of east Jerusalem have Israeli residency rights that allow them to move freely throughout the country In contrast West Bank residents and Gazans need Israeli permission to enter “There is no solution in the world of intelligence to the problem of a lone wolf who decides in the morning to launch an attack in the afternoon” said Cabinet Minister Yaakov Peri a former director of the Shin Bet internal security agency He said the “only solution is very strong deterrence” such as swiftly demolishing the homes of attackers Netanyahu has vowed to revive the policy of home demolitions which Israel halted in 2005 after determining it wasn’t an effective deterrent Israeli officials have reversed their opinion and Netanyahu has ordered stepped-up demolitions The Israeli leader flew to Jordan last week for talks with King Abdullah II who holds custodial rights over the Jerusalem mosque compound The two men agreed to take steps to lower tensions at the holy site But on Monday rumors spread that a Palestinian bus driver had been killed by Jewish assailants Although forensics experts ruled the death a suicide Palestinian youths clashed with Israeli police Israeli media reported Tuesday that Yoram Cohen the current Shin Bet head told lawmakers in a closed meeting that Abbas was not interested in inciting Palestinians to use violence against Israelis Cohen tied his assertion to his belief that widespread Palestinian violence against Israelis would undermine Abbas’s political standing the reports said The attack was the deadliest in Jerusalem since a Palestinian assailant killed eight students at a Jewish seminary

auction of coal blocks to private power steel and cement companies for captive use is a half-hearted attempt to tide over the impasse in India’s coal sector While it partially addresses the uncertainty stemming from the Supreme Court’s decision to cancel 214 coal mining allotments made between 1993 and 2010 it falls short of significant policy reform A more tangible reform measure would have entailed opening up commercial (as opposed to just captive) mining to private and foreign players This would have meant ending the monopoly of state-owned Coal India Ltd and Singareni Collieries which alone can mine coal for commercial purposes India currently sits on the world’s fifth-largest coal reserves and yet imports some $20 billion worth of coal annually Domestic production needs to be urgently stepped up but state-owned miners have failed to do so Captive mining isn’t a real alternative since a power or cement producer lacks the specialisation or competence to extract maximum coal in a given area at the least cost and with minimum damage to the environment This expertise can only come from professional full-time commercial miners CIL’s lack of expertise is illustrated by the fact that while over half of its 429 mines are underground needing greater technical expertise to operate than open-cast mines they produced less than a 10th of its output of 462 million tonnes last year Earlier governments probably understood the limitations of state-owned miners in increasing coal output and for that reason decided to hand over coal blocks to private players for captive mining But with the Supreme Court cancelling most of the 218 blocks allocated since 1993 on grounds that these did not follow transparent procedures even this policy received a setback Monday’s decision does not go beyond seeking an auction of the cancelled blocks while limiting the scope of such auctions to captive miners Given this government’s decisive mandate — which has just been reinforced by victories in the Maharashtra and Haryana polls — it could have done much more While the blueprint unveiled on Monday incorporates an “enabling provision” for amending the Coal Mines Nationalisation Act 1973 in the future with the objective of allowing commercial mining by private players the lack of a credible timeline leaves it hanging in the balance Reform in the true sense would have meant the scrapping of the state monopoly and denationalisation of coal assets the only way forward for this sector For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Jagdeep S Chhokar | Published: February 12 2016 12:12 am Related News P Vaidyanathan Iyer in ‘Govt plans to defuse ticking bank bomb’ (The Indian Express February 01) deserves congratulations for bringing out in public a proposal to set up an asset reconstruction company (ARC) with equity contribution from the government and the RBI to deal with the mounting problem of non-performing assets (NPAs) particularly in public-sector banks The proposal reportedly first mooted eight months ago has attracted hardly any public debate It’s also reported that the government is determined to go ahead with the proposal and has convened a meeting of “experts” including some from the IMF despite the RBI’s reservations about the ARC RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan is reported to have been “not comfortable” fearing a “moral hazard” and apparently said something to the effect of “Why should the taxpayer pay for reckless lending by banks in the past” This is the crux of the “moral hazard” A moral hazard according to 2008 economics Nobel laureate Paul Krugman is “any situation in which one person makes the decision about how much risk to take while someone else bears the cost if things go badly” Another way to look at it — while trying to discourage some action we inadvertently end up encouraging it The accumulation of NPAs has been caused by “reckless” lending If taxpayers’ money is used to cover this without any impact on the banks they are likely to do the same thing again since no discomfort or harm will come their way for reckless lending But why is Rajan so worried when all the “experts” see no problem Some pointers are available in Rajan’s recent public statements Delivering the Twentieth Lalit Doshi Memorial Lecture in Mumbai on August 11 2014 Rajan explained why corrupt politicians win elections: “The crooked politician needs the businessman to provide the funds that allow him to supply patronage to the poor and fight elections The corrupt businessman needs the crooked politician to get public resources and contracts cheaply And the politician needs the votes of the poor and the underprivileged” His end-of-the-year 2015 letter to the RBI staff said “We do not punish the wrong-doer — unless he is small and weak This belief feeds on itself No one wants to go after the rich and well-connected wrong-doer which means they get away with even more If we are to have strong sustainable growth this culture of impunity should stop” Now we come to “reckless” lending In the context of Rajan’s observations we are faced with two questions: Are the senior managements of banks incompetent or irrational that they make such “reckless” lending decisions And if they are indeed so incompetent how did they get to those positions in the first place The answers are not a secret No one needs to be told that “reckless” decisions are made by technocrats under pressure mostly political Rajan has made several suggestions to ease the NPA crisis such as corporate debt restructuring (CDR) the 5/25 scheme and strategic debt restructuring (SDR) These require banks to absorb some stress rather than going scot-free Banks have been lukewarm to these although they would like to reject them outright They wouldn’t dare do this unless they had the blessing even tacit of someone powerful Who that might be shouldn’t be hard to guess That’s why merely “Clean[ing] up the books” as the Indian Express editorial of February 2 suggested will be only treating the symptoms without taking care of the underlying malady The editorial does refer to the real remedy too when it says “the government has to give its managers a free hand and a compensation package that attracts global talent” While the Troubled Assets Relief Programme (TARP) brought in by the US government to deal with the subprime mortgage crisis is quoted with approval we also need to be alive to our real implementation capabilities and limitations There have been changes in government but our political establishment as a whole remains the same Its track record over the last 20-25 years doesn’t inspire confidence A related issue is transparency or the lack of it This matter has been around for eight months but doesn’t seem to have come to the public eye That should be reason enough for those whose money is at stake — “We the People” — to be cautious The writer is
