Beijing police raid home of South Korean journalist

Showing no warrant and giving no explanation, the police searched the premises and questioned him for two hours about his movements, his family and his recent change of residence. They took documents relating to his investigation into North Korean refugees, his passport and the passports of family members, his certificate of residence in China and his press card.Before leaving, the police told him he had broken the law by failing toreport his recent change of address to the local police station. A fine was imposed for this the next day at the immigration office. This is the first time such a regulation has been invoked. Until now, foreign correspondents were required only to notify the foreign ministry when changing residence, a requirement he had complied with.On 26 August, Yeo Shi-Dong had written an article on the arrest of several North Korean dissidents who had tried to force their way into the foreign ministry building to ask for refugee status. His newspaper, for its part, has on several occasions criticized China’s position on North Korean dissidents, calling on the authorities to give them refugee status in the name of human rights, instead of sending them back to North Korea.

Limerick bids to become more age-friendly

first_imgCelebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick NewsCommunityLimerick bids to become more age-friendlyBy Alan Jacques – December 12, 2013 707 Twitter Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch Previous articleNational bravery award for stroke survivor MikeNext articleLIT scholarships bring brighter future Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie LIMERICK is set to become more age-friendly in the new year, following this week’s launch of the Limerick Age Friendly programme by a newly-formed alliance of Limerick’s key statutory and community not-for-profit organisations.A countywide series of public consultations will start early in the new year when members of the community, especially older people, will be asked to submit their suggestions as to how Limerick can be made a more age-friendly place to live in, to work in and to visit.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The end result, an age-friendly strategy for Limerick, is expected to be finalised by the middle of next year.The Alliance overseeing the rollout of programme includes representatives from Limerick City and County Council, An Garda Síochána, the HSE, local academic institutions and voluntary organisations from across Limerick. The group is chaired by City an County Manager Conn Murray.“By signing up to Ireland’s national Age-friendly Cities and Counties programme (AFCC), Limerick is committing itself to establishing a City and County where older people can live full, active and healthy lives. At the end of this public consultation process, we will be well placed to draft an action plan and strategy that outlines how Limerick can set about declaring itself as an age-friendly community,”  Mr Murray explained.“It is important that no section of the local community is left behind in the future delivery of services across Limerick. Collaboration amongst key agencies and communities is also key to delivering a comprehensive and effective strategy,” he added.According to Mayor Kathleen Leddin, the rollout of the Limerick Age Friendly Programme is both urgent and timely as it represents the beginning of a journey to provide everyone with a greater awareness of the needs of older people.“It is also critically important that we identify how the local community can benefit from the strengths, knowledge and life experience of our elderly citizens. In the meantime, the ability of our elderly citizens to access basic services needs to be assessed while their thoughts on a range of other issues that may be affecting them need to be heard,” said Mayor Leddin.

UK business costs are the smallest in Europe

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. UK business costs are the smallest in EuropeOn 24 Feb 2004 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Despite claims that the UK has a ‘rip-off’ economy, it actually has thelowest business costs in Europe and is well-placed worldwide, new researchreveals. The 2004 Competitive Alternatives study identified the UK as having thelowest cost structure among seven major European nations and 11 otherindustrialised countries. The UK was also found to be the most competitive country in Europe and thirdoverall behind Canada and Australia, according to the study by consultantsKPMG. Surprisingly, the UK outperformed the US, and was found to be competitiveacross all industry sectors, including aerospace, telecommunications andpharmaceuticals. Ian Barlow, senior London partner at KPMG, said the UK and France had bothgained ground on other countries since the last survey in 2002. “Being cost-competitive is one of the fundamentals in securing inwardinvestment. However, selecting the best site for a business operation requiresbalanced consideration of factors including talent and skills, together withacademic support,” he said. While the survey found significant cost differences between countries forestablishing manufacturing and corporate service operations, the UK scored wellin both. It was also found to have favourable research and effective income taxrates. By Ross Wigham Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

HR Hartley

first_img Previous Article Next Article HR HartleyOn 8 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today Champagne and bloodshed in the arenaRewarding your staff is one of the essential principles of HR. Make themfeel special and wanted and they’ll work their socks off. What intrigues me, then, is the inherent adversarial nature of anothercornerstone of progressive HR – the in-house awards ceremony. You are pittingyour staff against each other in a manner that Russell Crowe in full Gladiatorget-up would be proud of. And, as far as I know, Roman warriors weren’t allowedto be fuelled by a combination of champagne and strong Continental lager to addto their aggression. I was at a swanky do at a top London hotel recently and as I stood in thetoilets (no, not handing out the towels), I listened to a chap from IT proudlydeliver the following line: “Hey, IT are going to take some seriouscasualties tonight!” The guy next to me loudly commented on how little theIT department must get out, using some very colourful language indeed. This was right at the start of the evening, and these blokes weren’t evencompeting for an award. After the ceremony had finished and the arena cleared and cleansed of blood,I was back in the loo listening to a salesman complain he had sold 32,000 unitsof something I didn’t understand, and the company could stick the award hedidn’t win right where the sun don’t shine. Sadly, methinks it’s a Catch 22. Staff get aggressive enough when they dohave an awards night – but just you try taking it away. I suppose if there’sany lesson to be learned, it’s bug the toilets, and you’ll soon begin todiscover where people’s loyalties really lie. Hartley is an HR director at large Comments are closed.
