‘Don’t try to disrupt political stability’, chief of staff Moeldoko warns KAMI

first_imgPresidential Chief of Staff Moeldoko has warned the Save Indonesia Action Coalition (KAMI) not to disrupt the nation’s political stability, alleging its members of having “certain interests” in forming the group.”Don’t even try to disrupt political stability. […] Everything comes with a risk,” Moeldoko said in a statement on Thursday as reported by kompas.com, implying that any actions by the group that disrupted national stability would have consequences.KAMI was founded when 150 prominent public figures came together on Aug. 18, 2020, the day after Independence Day. According to KAMI cofounder and former Muhammadiyah chairman Din Syamsudin, the group aimed to prevent any deviations from Indonesia’s founding principles. “[KAMI] is still in check. We don’t need to overreact to its ideas, as they are part of our democracy. However, I need to remind them if they [interfere] with the country’s stability,” said Moeldoko, who is a former TNI commander.On Monday, local police dispersed an event organized by KAMI in Surabaya, East Java, following a public protest that reportedly called the organization “dangerous”.Sawahan Police chief A.K.P. Wisnu Setyawan Kuncoro said that the group had not secured the appropriate permits to hold the event at Gedung Juang 45.“The organizers should have taken into account the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Wisnu said as quoted by kompas.com.Gatot Nurmantyo, who is on the KAMI executive committee and was scheduled to deliver a speech at the event, suspected that the public protest was orchestrated “by someone”, though he did not elaborate on his statement. (nal) The group’s founders include prominent government critics such as Rachmawati Soekarnoputri, a daughter of Indonesia’s first president Soekarno, former coordinating maritime affairs minister Rizal Ramli, former Indonesian Military (TNI) commander Gen. (ret.) Gatot Nurmantyo and Islam Defenders Front (FPI) chairman Sobri Lubis.They claim that the country has strayed from the republic’s founding principles and that the House of Representatives and political parties had failed to uphold the will of the people.Read also: 150 prominent national figures form coalition to ‘save Indonesia’Moeldoko said that the government did not prohibit the establishment of civil society groups or movements and that it remained open to criticism and advice from KAMI. He stressed, however, that the country had to strike a balance between democracy and national stability.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Gabby Agbonlahor red card rescinded

first_img But manager Paul Lambert was delighted at Agbonlahor’s reprieve after he was dismissed – for the first time in his career – by referee Lee Mason. He said: “It is great for us. I said at the time I didn’t think it was a red card and everyone’s assumption was the same. “Ex-referees have come out and said it wasn’t. “So your own common sense told you it wasn’t a red card. “Gabby is playing really well at the minute so we hoped it would be rescinded. “We are still without a few – Westy (Ashley Westwood), Nathan (Baker), (Philippe) Senderos and (Kieran) Richardson – so we didn’t want another one out. “Not one of your big players.” The red was Villa’s second in two games after Richardson was dismissed in their 1-0 defeat at West Brom. Richardson is still suspended but Villa have Alan Hutton back after a ban for their trip to the Liberty Stadium while Tom Cleverley is also available following his fifth yellow card of the season. The striker was dismissed in the second half of Villa’s 1-1 draw with United on Saturday after a 50-50 tackle with former Villa team-mate Ashley Young, but is now available to face Swansea on Boxing Day. Villa, though, have been charged by the Football Association with “failing to ensure that its players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion” during the game and have until 6pm on December 30 to respond.

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Fellaini slams Man Utd board: They keep sacking managersby Paul Vegas14 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has hit out at the board.Now with Shangdong Luneng, Fellaini slammed United’s sack culture.He told the Daily Mail: “They brought in [David] Moyes, they didn’t give him time. They brought in [Louis] Van Gaal, they gave him two years and we started to do some things, he won the cup, but after that they sacked the manager because they want to win quickly.”For me the club were too quick to sack Jose [Mourinho] because a manager like that comes and he needs a lot of players to do his own philosophy.”He wanted to build his team but after two years and a half they decided to sack him because the results were not there.”That’s the problem, they have to find a solution together. A manager like Van Gaal, tactically is very strong and a lot of experience and they sacked him.”They brought in one of the best managers in the world in Jose Mourinho, he wanted to build a team and they sacked him.”It’s not easy to build a team in that time, you need more than two years.”I don’t know what they will do with Ole. Mourinho, for the first season, he did amazingly, he improved the team, won things.”Okay the second season, was a bit more difficult, but he tried and did his best to help the team.” last_img read more

Ole Miss Sells Out Season Tickets In Record Time

first_imgOle Miss Football Tickets are Sold Out.Ole Miss Tickets Sold OutThe Rebels are coming off their first nine-win football season since 2009 and the anticipation for the next chapter is apparent, as Ole Miss has sold out of season tickets in record time, according to Athletic Director Ross Bjork. Was just asked if I wanted to tweet this out first….I jumped at the chance. Thanks to our #OleMiss family! #WAOM pic.twitter.com/Rje3iHISjf— Ross Bjork (@RossBjorkAD) June 23, 2015Earliest (on record) we’ve sold out of @OleMissFB season tickets…….June 23. Expecting new sales record as well! pic.twitter.com/viVYZGn9el— Ross Bjork (@RossBjorkAD) June 23, 2015 After defeating conference opponents like Alabama and Texas A&M during its 7-0 start to the season, it’s easy to see why Ole Miss is excited about the glaring support from its fans.The Rebels didn’t close the 2014-15 season out as strong as they had hoped, losing four of their last six games, but that’s not going to keep the always-proud fan base down. And one can only assume this kind of enthusiasm will pour over into The Grove and then Vaught-Hemingway Stadium come September 5, when the Rebels open up the season at home against UT Martin.last_img read more

Internal TD bank review of financing Dakota Access pipeline still weeks away

first_imgTom Fennario APTN National NewsLawyers working on a review of how the Toronto Dominion bank is investing in the Dakota Access pipeline said it has not idea when the project will be complete.In December, the bank issued a statement stating that it would undertake a review after protesters blocked several branches in Canada and the United States in an effort to get the bank to stop investing in the Dakota Access pipeline.“We’re focusing our attention on TD partly because it has invested the most money out of any Canadian bank into the Dakota access pipeline.” said Montreal demonstrator Meara Kirwin outside a downtown TD bank on a frigid February day.TD Securities is part of what’s called a lending syndicate – a group of banks that lends expensive projects money.In the case of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) TD has put in more than $360 million to help finance the controversial project.“We don’t think that banks should be funding human rights violations the way the Dakota access pipeline is doing in cooperation with the local police forces,” said Mohawk protester Kenneth Deer at a demonstration targeting a Montreal TD bank this past November.The response from the bank was to hire a human rights expert to conduct a review on behalf of the lenders and advise on recommended improvements.But Foley Hoag, the Boston law firm in charge of the review told APTN National News that despite having worked on it for more than three months, there’s no time frame to release the report.This comes at a time when court documents state the Dakota access pipeline might be operational as soon as next week.Now the demonstrators are wondering what’s taking the review so long.“Taking that long to do a review when the reality of the situation is very clear ethically and economically is completely unacceptable,” said Kirwin.TD declined to be interviewed for this [email protected]n.calast_img read more
