Laiki Bank administrator resigns in conflict of interest dispute

first_imgLAIKI BANK administrator Andri Antoniadi has resigned after disagreeing with the Resolution Authority over the appointment of a certain law firm to handle the case against the defunct lender’s former strongman Andreas Vgenopoulos.The resignation was confirmed by Central Bank executive Stelios Kiliaris.Kiliaris told the Cyprus News Agency that Antoniadi resigned after the Central Bank put Chrysis Demetriades on the case against Vgenopoulos.Reports said Antoniadi resigned because she believes there was an issue of conflict of interest since the law firm had borrowed from Laiki with favourable terms when the bank was under Vgenopoulos’ control.Kiliaris said the matter had been examined by the authority which judged that there was no such issue.In her letter to the authority, Antoniadi suggested that the outcome of the case would be disastrous and “I have no doubt that the blame would be born entirely by you.”Cyprus was forced to shut down Laiki in March 2013 and impose massive losses on depositors in Bank of Cyprus to keep it afloat and get €10 billion in aid from international lenders.In June of that year, a Nicosia district court issued an interim order freezing assets worth around €5.3 billion belonging to Vgenopoulos and two other people.The interim court orders, which have a global reach, were secured by Antoniadi.The court froze assets belonging to Vgenopoulos and former Laiki CEO Efthimios Bouloutas worth €3.79 billion and those belonging to former board member Kyriacos Magiras worth €1.5 billion.It also banned Vgenopoulos’ Marfin Investment Group (MIG) Holdings SA from making any payments or transfers to the benefit of the three men.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.

Rep Runestad welcomes parenting advocates to the Capitol

first_img Categories: Runestad News State Rep. Jim Runestad of White Lake welcomed a group of mothers, stepmothers and grandmothers to the Capitol for their inaugural Michigan Women for Shared Parenting legislative day on Wednesday. The women, representing 10 counties, traveled to Lansing from around the state to meet with legislators and discuss their support of family court reforms.Each woman shared her personal story with Rep. Runestad and a bipartisan group of legislators regarding the effect of court decisions on families. “As a stepmother I appreciate the important roles both parents play in the lives of their children. Children grow from the opportunity to foster meaningful relationships with each parent without either one being ‘better’ or ‘more important’ in the eyes of the system,” said Tara Rodriguez from Portland.The women discussed the impact of having a child’s grandparents and other family members entirely cut out of his or her life due to a court’s preference of unequal parenting time arrangements.“When there are two loving and fit parents who do the everyday work to take care of a child pre-divorce or separation, there needs to be a presumption that post-divorce, there will also be two loving and fit parents continuing to take care of a child,” Rep. Runestad said. “Otherwise, we are cutting out half of their support system, half of their family members and half of their identity as a person.”Michigan Women for Shared Parenting recently formed in an effort to restructure the state’s existing family court laws. Rep. Runestad is the sponsor of House Bill 4691, the Michigan Shared Parenting Act, which is currently on the House floor. 28Sep Rep. Runestad welcomes parenting advocates to the Capitollast_img

House committee approves Rep Tedder bill to expand school zone speed limits

first_img Categories: News,Tedder News 08Feb House committee approves Rep. Tedder bill to expand school zone speed limits Legislation enforces school zone speed limits to overhead pedestrian walkwaysThe Michigan House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee this week approved legislation introduced by state Rep. Jim Tedder to expand school zone speed limits to roads with an overhead crosswalk.Under current Michigan law, school zone speed limits cannot be enforced on highways where overhead pedestrian walkways are constructed.Tedder said this must be changed to protect Michigan students.“This legislation provides local governments with the option of enforcing school zone speed limits in areas which may be dangerous for students walking to school,” said Tedder, of Clarkston.  “Students will be able to walk safely to and from school without having to worry about higher traffic in certain areas.”This legislation does not apply to walkways that span over expressways.Waterford Schools have a situation where exempting the overhead pedestrian walkway from school zone speed limits has created safety issues, Tedder said.House Bill 4840 moves to the full House for consideration.###last_img
