Murdered journalist’s family gets compensation

first_imgNews Organisation Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists “In the light of this cold-blooded assassination of a journalist, we cannot fail to be concerned about the conception certain political party supporters have of what constitutes freedom of expression” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to federal interior minister Moin-ud-din Haider. “This crime must be solved urgently or those responsible may escape punishment.”Soomro, who worked for the Sindi-language daily Kawish, was called out of his house by the killers, said Ahmed Raza, correspondent of the Daily Times in Hyderabad. When he emerged, they tried to kidnap him, but he resisted and they shot him before fleeing in a car. He died of serious stomach wounds on his way to hospital.It is thought articles he wrote during the election campaign may have triggered his death. Police have arrested Mohammad Ali Bijarani and are seeking four other suspects, including Bijarani’s brother Wahid and another man, Mohammad Bajkani.The Bijarani brothers belong to a family of influential local politicians. Another brother, Mir Mehboob, was recently elected to the provincial assembly for Kandhkot, and an uncle, Mir Hazzar Khan Bijarani, is a former federal minister and has been elected as a member of the national assembly on the Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians ticket. Soomro, who was 26 and had a wife and two children, had written articles about Mir Mehboob.

The assembly was chaired by a senior member of the Sundrani tribe, Sardar Sunder Khan Sundrani, assisted by former member of parliament Illahi Bux Soomro, local journalists and other local figures.

Tagged with: Cybersecurity Technology Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Importance of Cybersecurity in Risk Management Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago This week, Safeguard Properties hosted a webinar to discuss the challenges facing cybersecurity in 2019. Security, Safeguard notes, should be one of the primary focuses when implementing and developing systems and applications.Cybersecurity remains a top concern at a majority of lending institutions, according to the 2019 Regulatory & Risk Management Indicator released by Wolters Kluwer, and 78% of lenders reported it as a top risk that will receive “escalated priority” in the next year. While cybersecurity outranks all other risks in the survey, the level is down from 81% last year.During Safeguard’s webinar, Steve Roesing President and CEO of ASMGi, 2019 stated that the majority of data breaches from malicious attacks, with 69% of data breaches stemming from outside sources, as 51% of breaches are caused by malicious or criminal attacks.Meanwhile, just 24% of breaches are caused by human error, while another 25% are caused by system glitches.“It’s almost a 50-50 split,” said Roesing.Malware attacks made up 34.4% of attacks in 2019, the largest share of any other attack type. Meanwhile, account hijacking made up 18.2% of attacks. Among financial services institutions, there were 927 reported incidents, 207 of which included confirmed data disclosure. We applications, privilege misuse, and other miscellaneous errors made up 72% of breaches.Most malicious breaches, 88%, were reportedly done for financial reasons, while espionage made up another 10%.Cybersecurity, Safeguard notes, requires a “holistic approach,” involving both policy and systematic controls at all levels.Some of the trends noted in the webinar included the changing landscape of “phishing,” the increased use of mobile technology for attacks, and increased investments in cybersecurity. Going into 2020, Safeguard expects to see increased spending and a growing impact from AI and machine learning (ML) on cybersecurity.

London and South East’s million-pound homes monopoly continues, report shows

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » London and South East’s million-pound homes monopoly continues, report shows previous nextHousing MarketLondon and South East’s million-pound homes monopoly continues, report showsJust over three quarters of all homes for sale at the moment over £1 million are in the capital or its commuter town counties.Nigel Lewis22nd February 201901,610 Views Britain’s extraordinary million-pound homes market has been laid bare in a report.It reveals that there are 21,484 for sale in the UK at the moment and that 77% of them are to be found in London and the Home Counties.The market therefore contains property worth at least £21.5 billion and, if buyers can be found, generate fees of approximately £322 million for their selling agents.The research by online estate agency HouseSimple also found that 84% of million-pound-plus homes within London are flats and that the majority of this property type are concentrated in just five boroughs.These are Kensington & Chelsea, the City of Westminster, Camden, Wandsworth and Southwark. The Home Counties with the most million-pound homes for sale are: County setSurrey: 1,992Hertfordshire: 700Essex: 685Kent: 625Buckinghamshire: 591Sussex: 588Berkshire: 460Hampshire: 413Areas outside London and the Home Counties feature within the research, but numbers are low compared to the capital.Cheshire has the highest concentration of million-pound properties with 341 followed by Greater Manchester (206) and North Yorkshire (133) although several counties barely scrape in such as Rutland (11) and Durham (12).“Although Brexit has loomed large over house prices in London recently, the capital remains a global city with property values to match,” says Sam Mitchell, CEO of HouseSimple (left).“But for buyers who are lucky enough to have a budget of £1m plus, this is the market where you could negotiate a healthy discount.” HouseSimple prime property million pound homes sam mitchell February 22, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
