Hoekstra highlighted the temporary nature of the exemption, and said that the expectation was that it would apply until 1 January 2021.The minister added that the exemption would also apply to clearing services in the Netherlands provided by UK-based clearing houses.Dutch financial regulator AFM said in October that it had been in “150 substantial discussions” with UK providers seeking to do business in the Netherlands post-Brexit.The Dutch plan followed an agreement struck between UK and EU regulators in an attempt to mitigate the effect on the financial services industry of the UK exiting the bloc without a deal.The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority signed a “multilateral memorandum of understanding” with regulators in the remaining EU member states and in the wider European Economic Area to facilitate co-operation and information-sharing across areas of financial services, including the asset management industry.In January, Achmea Investment Management’s treasury and derivatives manager Erik-Jan van Dijk said the short-term nature of currency hedging contracts meant they were likely to be the first to shift from London to other cities within the EU. UK-based asset managers will get a temporary exemption for providing services in the Netherlands in case UK lawmakers fail to pass its proposed EU withdrawal agreement.In a letter to parliament, Wopke Hoekstra, the Dutch finance minister, said that if the UK were to leave the EU in a disorderly way, asset managers would be temporarily exempt from “an important part of prudential rules and conditions” set by the Dutch Financial Supervision Act (known as Wft).With this decision, the Dutch cabinet said it wanted to avoid endangering service provision by UK-based managers to Dutch investors.It added that the exemption would also enable investors to take adequate measures to prevent or mitigate the negative impact of a ‘no deal’ Brexit.
The Police Regional Office 6 (PRO-6)condemned the arson in Guimbal. The real victim, said PRO-6spokesperson Joem Malong, is not Wilkinson Construction but the public. The men, who introduced themselves asrebels, ordered the people at the motorpool to step aside and not resist, saidCaro. The torching at the motorpool ofWilkinson Construction was carried out at around 10:45 p.m., according toPolice Lieutenant Nelson Caro, Guimbal police chief. These cement mixers of a construction company were torched by suspected rebels in Guimbal, Iloilo late night on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019. Police investigators believed the company resisted the rebels’ extortion attempts. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN “The NPA is the only group with thecapacity to do such acts (extortion and arson),” said Caro. “Angkompanya lang amon,” the men told themotor pool people, added Caro. Wilkinson Construction had beenreceiving extortion letters from the New People’s Army since 2017, the policechief revealed. “The men left the constructioncompany’s employees unharmed. Perhaps the firm did not pay revolutionarytaxes,” said Caro. Burned down were two mixers and abackhoe. They cost an estimated P16 million. “There would be delays in ongoinginfrastructure projects,” she said./PN ILOILO – Armed men believed to bemembers of the New People’s Army (NPA) set on fire the heavy equipment of aconstruction company on Wednesday night in Barangay Igcocolo, Guimbal town.
Abante on Thursday filed House Bill 6701 that would amend Republic Act 7925, or the Public Telecommunications Policy Act, by abolishing the NTC and transferring its powers and functions to the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT).“All assets, including the existing appropriation and monies allocated to the NTC will likewise be transferred to the DICT, and the department secretary may also authorize the sale of these properties through public bidding, negotiated sale, lease or any other form of divestment or transmission of rights,” the measure stated.According to Abante, he has long been thinking of getting rid of the commission as it is a “useless” agency, which recently ordered ABS CBN network to cease and desist from operations following the expiration of its franchise.“Our NTC, supposedly in charge of regulating and promoting the telecommunications industry has turned out to be one of the most inept and useless agencies whose only relevance lies in being another model for sheer wastage of taxpayer money,” he said.“Its failure all these years to invoke sanctions against the companies poorly serving the people’s telecommunications needs is a perfect reason to abolish it already,” Abante added.He further said both houses of Congress have moved to allow the continuous operation of ABS-CBN, with the House by writing to the NTC and the Senate passing a resolution calling on the commission to issue a provisional authority to operate on ABS-CBN.“The NTC should be abolished and its functions and powers be transferred to the DICT where it can be better exercised and hopefully be more responsive to the needs of our changing times,” Abante said.Over at the Senate, at least eight senators have signed a resolution on Thursday urging the NTC to reconsider its cease and desist order against the broadcast operations of ABS-CBN.Senator Risa Hontiveros said that the resolution is a “reiteration” of the previous sense of the Senate – adopted in March – telling NTC officials that ABS-CBN should be allowed to operate while Congress continues to tackle its franchise renewal bid.“Nilagay sa panganib ng cease and desist order na inihain laban sa ABS-CBN ang trabaho ng mga mangagagawa na puwede rin i-consider na frontliners sa pandemic ngayon,” Hontiveros said.Among the points raised in the new resolution is an NTC memorandum saying all permits, certificates and licenses that have expired during the enhanced community quarantine are deemed extended for 60 days after the lockdown is lifted.“So bakit parang sa ABS-CBN lamang naging selective ang paghihigpit ng NTC?” Hontiveros said. “Baka kasi the loophole is not in the law in itself pero nasa tamang pag–implementa ng batas.”Under the Constitution, a Congressional resolution does not have the force and effect of law, but is simply an opinion of a legislative body./PN MANILA – House Minority Leader Bienvenido Abante Jr. underscored the need for the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to be abolished as he hit several issues against the agency–including its order to shut down media giant ABS-CBN.

THE FUTURE of the opening Test of the Haier Cup looks ‘pink’ for Pakistan, as they dominated the West Indies on the opening day of the second-ever day/night Test match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium yesterday.A record opening stand of 215 between Sami Aslam and Azhar Ali left the West Indies limping at the end of the day, as Pakistan closed on 279 for one. Ali was unbeaten on 146, while Aslam made 90 and Asad Shafiq not out 33.The West Indies cricketers were made to chase the pink ball for the entire afternoon and into the night, as the experiment of playing the longest format of the game from 15:30hrs looked promising.During the afternoon fans were seen coming to the ground with their families and this was one of the benefits of staging the match at this time of day. While the crowd dynamics changed, the West Indies’ problems since arriving in the UAE a month now, did not, as they continued to suffer against the world-ranked number two Test side.Earlier, West Indies lost the toss and without hesitation the Pakistanis decided to take first strike. Openers Aslam and Ali ran out looking to give their team a good foundation. The aim was to take the West Indies bowlers out of the game early and pile on the pressure, leading to a big score and the ultimate scoreboard pressure.When tea was taken after two hours’ play, the effort was well employed to build a huge total and the construction was underway. After 10 overs the pink ball stopped swinging and it was a hard grind for the West Indies thereafter.During the warm-up games, the bowlers were able to get the ball to seam around just after tea but Shannon Gabriel and Miguel Cummins could not reproduce that.After the break it was the same story as the Pakistanis continued to send leather to all parts of the field and some tired-looking West Indian legs were in pursuit. Aslam was the first of the batsmen to reach fifty. He did it off 105 balls with five fours. Ali then recorded his off 115 balls with five fours as well.The experienced Lahore batsman turned up the heat on the West Indies after the milestone and raced to his 11th Test hundred in his 50th Test match. His century came off 184 balls with 10 hits to the fence and in the process he joined a very elite group of Pakistani stroke-players.A wicket seemed impossible to come by with the closest option looking to be a run-out, as Ali and Aslam gave chances with their running between the sticks.The breakthrough finally came after 67.5 overs, when Aslam enjoying his Test-best of 90, swept at Roston Chase, only to hear the dreaded sound of timber falling behind him. His effort came in 290 minutes in which time he negotiated 212 balls and struck nine fours.The rock-solid Asad Shafiq then joined Ali and they continued to play good Test cricket, rotating the strike and putting the bad balls away efficiently. When stumps were drawn Ali had batted for 366 minutes, faced 268 balls and struck 14 boundaries.SCOREBOARDPAKISTAN vs WEST INDIESPAKISTAN 1st inningsS. Aslam b Chase 90Az. Ali not out 146A.
