MP Pension chief calls for Danske Bank’s Borgen to exit immediately

first_imgJens Munch Holst, CEO, MP Pension In his resignation statement last week, Borgen took responsibility for the shortcomings, despite Bruun & Hjejle – the law firm that conducted the review of Danske’s Estonian operation – finding that he was not legally culpable. The head of Danske Bank should leave his job immediately, following the money-laundering scandal at the Estonian branch of Denmark’s biggest bank, according to the chief executive of one of the country’s largest pension funds.Thomas Borgen, CEO of Danske Bank, resigned on 19 September – the same day the Nordic banking giant published an internal report into the money-laundering scandal. In a statement announcing Borgen’s decision, Danske said he would continue in his position until a new CEO was appointed.Jens Munch Holst, chief executive of the DKK114bn (€15.3bn) MP Pension, said: “We have confidence that Danske Bank will safeguard itself as well as possible against money laundering in the future… But we don’t understand how the director Thomas Borgen can still turn up at Danske Bank.”Holst added: “He must stop immediately… anything else is incomprehensible and unsatisfactory.”center_img Thomas Borgen, outgoing Danske Bank CEOMP Pension – which covers academics at Denmark’s public sector universities and schools – currently holds almost DKK600m of Danske Bank stock in its portfolio but has “quarantined” the company since July due to its concerns over the money-laundering case, meaning the pension fund cannot add to the position.However, Holst emphasised that the bank and its staff were running a good business overall. MP Pension’s investment team had discussed whether the equities should be sold off entirely, but Holst said that it did not think this was appropriate.“Danske Bank is important for the whole of Danish society,” Holst said. “So we prefer to remain as owners of the company in order to make our influence count.”A year ago, Danske launched an investigation into its branch in Estonia because of suspicions that it had been used to launder several billion kroner between 2007 and 2015. The resulting report found that staff in Tallinn may have helped or colluded with customers on suspicious transactions. It identified around 15,000 customers as being associated with a non-resident portfolio in question, and a total flow of payments of some €200bn. Danske Bank said a “significant part” of this was likely to be suspicious.At the time of publication Danske Bank had not responded to questions from IPE on the implications of the scandal for its pensions business, Danica Pension.Danske Bank’s share price has lost more than a quarter of its value since the start of this year, falling from DKK242 at the start of January to DKK170 when the Danish stock market closed on 21 September.last_img read more

first_img The contract for the PUMA deal is neither in the files at the Secretariat of the AFN at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja nor in the custody of the Secretary General who is legally recognised as the custodian of AFN’s documents,records and properties. The AFN attached to the petition a copy of a February 13,2020 letter received from PUMA which revealed some details of the contract and wants a full investigation launched by the Police. The AFN also attached to the petition amongst others report of its investigative committee which turned in a comprehensive report of criminal misappropriation of the federation’s funds by Gusau which led to partial or non-payment of allowances to athletes despite budgetary approval and release of corresponding funds.

Okagbare  The petition,addressed to the Inspector General of Police and signed by its Secretary General,Prince Adisa Beyioku accused Gusau,president of AFN at the time of signing the deal with PUMA without the knowledge and approval of the board of the federation and especially that of the Secretary General in contravention of article 8.7.2 of the AFN constitution to wit articles 4.4.2,4.4.3 and 4.4.4 of the National Sports Federations Code of Governance 2017 recognised by the AFN constitution.

PRO-6 campaign vs illegal drugs wows PNP chief

first_imgILOILO City – Philippine National Police (PNP) chief, Police General Archie Francisco Gamboa lauded the Police Regional Office 6’s (PRO-6) campaign against illegal drugs. Although he managed to escape from policemen trying to entrap him in a buy-bust operation at his house in Barangay Guinacas, Pototan on Nov. 9, 2016, he was charged. Sources further told Panay News Bolivar has lots of money to buy protection from policemen and even businessmen. Camp Delgado is the headquarters of the PRO-6. Bolivar has a pending arrest warrant for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002. Unit commanders have been ordered to mobilize tracker teams, said Police Brigadier General Rene Pamuspusan, PRO-6 director. A resident of Barangay Guinacas, Pototan, Iloilo, Bolivar has been in hiding since 2017. “They should not try to fight our personnel,” said Pamuspusan. “Bolivar is not here. He is hiding outside Region 6. But we will continue pursuing him,” Pamuspusan said. Fugitive drug suspect Ernesto Bolivar is one of the 10 targets, he revealed. He did not name the nine others. “Their drug accomplishments really contribute to the PNP campaign on illegal drugs. To the men and women of the PRO-6, continue to work hard,” he said. Policemen are currently hunting down 10 high-value illegal drug suspects in Western Visayas despite the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, according to the PRO-6.center_img PRO-6 data showed that since January this year, a total of 1,014 drug pushers have been arrested in 710 police operations. “As far as records are concerned, Region 6 is always doing good in the illegal drugs drive. Wala akong masabi. Tagalang masipag sa paghahanap ng drug personalities,” said Gamboa during a visit to Camp Delgado here on July 15. Bolivar, 41, became the region’s top drug target after the death in September 2017 of drug lord Richard Prevendido. Gamboa said the PRO-6 is also “doing excellent” in administrative and operational aspects. According to Gamboa, since he became the PNP chief early this year, a total of P12 billion worth of illegal drugs have been confiscated across the country. To avoid detection, sources said, Bolivar has tapped the services of personalities whom the police are not familiar with. Bolivar was believed to be a minion of Prevendido and stepped up drug trafficking activities after his boss died in a shootout with policemen on Sept. 1, 2017 in Barangay Balabago, Jaro district here. “We are on the right track,” said Gamboa. A total of 5,728.06 grams of shabu and 446.66 grams of marijuana valued at P66.3 million were confiscated. PRO-6 aims to “clear” drug-affected areas in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, he added./PNlast_img read more

Lambert hails battling side

first_imgAston Villa manager Paul Lambert praised his battered and bruised team for putting in a performance that was good enough to take all three points away from Carrow Road. The Scot was returning to former club Norwich and the 1-0 scoreline secured his third win in three games in Norfolk since he left to take over at Villa Park. His side survived conceding an early penalty and an injury to striker Christian Benteke to take the lead through the Belgium international’s replacement Libor Kozak. The loss was only Norwich’s second home league defeat in 12 matches, with the last also dished out by Villa towards the end of last season. Canaries boss Chris Hughton had demanded a reaction from his players following a meek display in defeat at Tottenham last weekend and felt his side were better this time around. “On occasions when we haven’t deserved to get anything we have been quick to put our hands up.” he said. “I don’t think that was the case. On the balance of play we created good chances and we added an offensive endeavour to our play. The result does not reflect our performance. “What we didn’t have at the end of it was a bit of quality, fortune and guile to get us the goal we deserved.” Hughton backed Snodgrass to take further penalties in the future but admitted he expected club-record signing Ricky van Wolfswinkel to step up. “Sometimes what you will have on that occasion is a lad who feels very confident that he is going to put it away,” he added. “That was very much the case with Robert – when you have a penalty you are expected to score. If you have an inspired goalkeeper who guesses the right way it is tough. “We were all expecting Ricky to take it. Those conversations are very private but I expected him to take it and if we get one in the future then I would expect him to take it.” One goal has usually not been enough for Villa to take all three points but they hung on to keep their first clean sheet in 26 Barclays Premier League outings with Lambert left praising his side’s commitment. “The result was the most important thing rather than the performance,” he said. “What I am really pleased about is we had a few lads carrying knocks and we asked them to go out and perform. I thought they were brilliant. We were missing Jores (Okore) and Ashley (Westwood) who have been big players for us and we had to patch a few others up. In that opening 10 minutes I felt we could have been 2-0 up and then we conceded a soft penalty.” Robert Snodgrass saw his penalty saved by Brad Guzan after referee Chris Foy had pointed to the spot for a handball against Ciaran Clark. The American goalkeeper has been in great form for Villa and kept the visitors ahead with a couple of fantastic second-half saves, with Lambert happy with his ever-reliable stopper. “He made a brilliant save on the penalty,” he added. “He played a major part in the result but that is what we pay him for. That is his job. His job is to make saves but he has been like that for me for the past year. “This is a big season for him with the World Cup and for us but he is an absolute top pro and top man. I have seen him do it in training every day and his performances every day have been to that standard.” Press Associationlast_img read more
