PM Narendra Modi urges for 'close coordination' on black money issue in G-20 Summit

PM Narendra Modi urges for ‘close coordination’ on black money issue in G-20 Summit

Prime Minister Narendra Modi raised the issue of black money during the ninth G-20 Summit meeting on Sunday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged every jurisdiction, especially tax havens, to provide information for tax purposes in accordance with treaty obligation. Narendra Modi said, “The new global standard on automatic exchange of tax information would be instrumental in getting information of unaccounted money hoarded abroad and enable its eventual repatriation. Close global coordination is important not just for addressing the challenge of Black money, but also security issues like terrorism, drug trafficking and smuggling.”  PM Modi is also expected to unveil a statue of the iconic freedom fighter in Brisbane’s Roma Street Parkland.

Aditya Verma to send Supreme Court report to ICC ethics panel

The BCCI has decided to call an emergent working committee meeting in Chennai on November 18 to decide whether to postpone only the board’s election, or the annual general meeting as well

Buoyed by Supreme Court naming BCCI’s suspended president N Srinivasan on Friday, the petitioner in the IPL spot-fixing case and Cricket Association of Bihar secretary Aditya Verma said he will write to the ethics panel of International Cricket Council (ICC) and all the 30 members of the Indian cricket board urging them to join hands to save international cricket.
Srinivasan is the chairman of ICC.

Verma has been awaiting the copy of the Justice Mukul Mudgal panel report, which is likely to be delivered on Monday. He said he will enclose it along with his appeal to the ICC and ask them to initiate proceedings to remove Srinivasan from the post of chairman.

“As per Clause 2.1 of ICC’s code of ethics which states that an executive member can be removed if he is guilty of misconduct, neglect of duty etc,” Verma said.

Verma added he will also send a copy of Srinivasan’s ‘misdemeanour’ along with his personal appeal to all the 30 members of BCCI, asking them to come together in order to get rid of present misrule.

The BCCI has decided to call an emergent working committee meeting in Chennai on November 18 to decide whether to postpone only the board’s election or the annual general meeting as well. Verma questioned the motives of the Srinivasan group and insisted that country’s cricket body is not a property of any individual.

“Is there only one administrator in India to run the cricket affairs?” Verma said. “How can a tainted man be allowed to even attend any of BCCI meetings?”

The chorus against Srinivasan is getting louder by the day. The big question now is if and when Sharad Pawar will come out in open to announce his candidature for the BCCI’s top post. That would somehow provide shelter to all those floating votes — six to eight — who are eager to jump the sinking ship of Srinivasan.

Clause 2.1 of ICC’s code of ethics states:
Directors shall not engage in any conduct that in any way denigrates the ICC or harms its public image’ and clause 4.11 (F) of the ICC’s constitution, by which an ICC director can be removed as a member of the Executive Board on any one of the following grounds: (1) he is guilty of any dishonesty, gross misconduct or wilful neglect of duty (whether by act or omission); or (2) in the reasonable opinion of the Executive Board, he commits (whether by act or omission) any act which brings or would tend to bring the Council into disrepute; or (3) he conducts himself in a manner materially adverse to the interests of the Council,” Verma read out lines from ICC code of ethics.
