When Alaska voters approved legalization of recreational pot and retail sales of marijuana products in 2014, they also approved the right of local governments to ban commercial marijuana grow operations or pot sales within city limits. Two cities in the Matanuska Susitna Borough have opted to ban marijuana sales and grow operations. But Houston is aiming to bolster its city revenues with legal marijuana commerce. Alaska Public Media’s Ellen Lockyer spoke with Houston mayor Virgie Thompson on how that could shape the city’s future.Download AudioCannabis Plant. (Photo by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)Houston is a 22 square mile entity in the middle of the Matanuska Susitna Borough. The Borough communities of Palmer and Wasilla have banned pot sales, but Houston is bucking that trend.Mayor Virgie Thompson says the city survives on property taxes, sales taxes and state revenue sharing. With Alaska’s state finances heading downward because of the drop in oil prices, state help is dwindling. Thompson says, last year, the city couldn’t meet it’s budget.“And we ended up actually having to furlough employees at the end of the last fiscal year, because we didn’t have the funds,” Thompson said. “We continued to pay their insurance, but we did have to furlough them from their daily responsibilities.”Houston also had to shutter its police department to pay for other city services.Thompson says the Houston City Council views marijuana retail as an opportunity. Thompson says, city voters turned down a city initiative banning commercial pot during the last city election.“We voted on it not once, but twice, and the second time, it was also the residents wanted marijuana,” said Thompson. “So, done deal. Now we are going to have to deal with it. This is what the people want.”A city ordinance introduced in February aims to regulate commercial pot grow operations and retail sales of cannabis products. If it passes, Houston will be an island of legal pot in a Borough the size of West Virginia.This is not the first time Houston has taken its own path. Houston allows the sale of fireworks, which are prohibited throughout the Mat Su Borough and Anchorage. Thompson says the sales taxes on Roman candles help pay for emergency services, such as fire response, and the income from pot excise and sales taxes could cover expenses of a new city police force.A public hearing on the city pot ordinance earlier this month drew a large crowd. One of the sticking points in the legislation is “on site” consumption of marijuana products. The initial ordinance language prohibited on-site consumption, and Thompson supports that.“They buy their ounce, and they put it in the trunk of their car, and they’re gone,” said Thompson. “What they do after that, I’m sorry I don’t know, but as far as on-site consumption and someone sitting in a parking lot out by the retail place, and smoking, that’s not going to be allowed. That’s the way it is. ”Thompson says the city’s proposed land use ordinance would create zoning to designate areas for grow operations or cannabis products shops. A 2% city sales tax on products and an excise tax of 8 to 10 % an ounce has been proposed at the cultivation stage.But at the council meeting, an amendment changing the ordinance to allow on -site smoking in commercial and Parks Highway zones was put forward, and debate over it has delayed a vote until after a second public hearing.The mayor says the city code ought to follow state marijuana regulations, rather than breaking new ground.“If we do something different from what the state is allowing at this point in time, then it is our responsibility to police that,” Thompson said. “My opinion is, we should take baby steps, I don’t think we should be taking everything on at the same time. ”Land rich Houston has the potential to attract marijuana grow operations, which in turn could supply other cannabis operations, Thompson says. The city has a sales tax, but too few businesses to contribute much to city coffers. The Houston City Council will take public comment on the ordinance on March 24.

The charm of the IPL has not only made the careers of young Indian players but also caught the attention of many foreign players.Over the years, a lot of overseas players have plied their trade for various franchises in the IPL but very rarely have foreign players come in as unknown entities and become stars. This was largely because each team is allowed four overseas players and the pool of players is so huge, generally the established stars are picked up. But in 2012, Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir sprung a surprise by buying a little known Caribbean at the auctions. Sunil Narine was the MVP of IPL 2018.Vipin Pawar / IPL / SPORTZPICSThis person was none other than Sunil Narine and he has since become one of the legends of the IPL. He burst onto the scene as a mystery spinner and made life difficult for the batsmen with his myriad variations that used to come at a quick pace. But he was asked to remodel his action which took away the mystery element from his game in 2014. This did not stop him from reinventing himself and he is now one of the IPL’s better all-rounders as he comes out to open the batting and scores quick runs.Narine was named the most valuable player in IPL 2018 and is one of the most prized assets in the shortest format of the game. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the KKR all-rounder earns a whopping Rs 12.5 crore from his IPL contract which equates to 1.37 euro. The 2019 edition of the IPL is Narine 8th season with KKR and till the 2018 edition, he had 112 scalps in 99 matches at an economy rate of 6.55 runs per over. With bat in hand, he has 628 runs with the highest score of 75 at a strike rate almost touching 169. David Warner made a fantastic return to the IPL against KKR.IANSLike Narine, another player who reinvented himself is former Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper David Warner. While he is a different and bullish sort of person for Australia, he has been a respected leader for his IPL team. Captaining SRH to the title in 2016, Warner has made a name for himself in the IPL and is also the highest scoring overseas player in the history of the tournament.Warner’s exploits in the IPL sees him earning Rs 12/5 crore from his franchise which equates to 1.37 million euro. The 32-year-old made his IPL debut in 2009 and has 4099 runs in 115 games at an average of 40.99 with a strike rate of 142.47 in the IPL.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (C) waves after arriving at the Dong Dang railway station in Dong Dang, Lang Son province, on 26 February, 2019, to attend the second US-North Korea summit. Photo: AFPNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un crossed into Vietnam Tuesday after a marathon train journey for a second summit showdown with Donald Trump, with the world looking for concrete progress over the North’s nuclear programme.Following a historic first meeting in Singapore in June that produced a vaguely worded statement about Kim’s nuclear arsenal, analysts say the second summit in Vietnam’s capital Hanoi must this time put substance ahead of bonhomie.Kim’s trademark olive green train chugged into the Vietnamese station of Dong Dang following a 4,000-kilometre (2,500-mile), two-and-a-half-day odyssey shrouded in secrecy.Schoolchildren waving North Korean flags and a military guard of honour in pristine white uniforms greeted Kim, the first North Korean leader to visit Vietnam since his grandfather Kim Il Sung in 1964.Security was ultra-tight with scores of heavily armed Vietnamese soldiers and police guarding the site. Authorities have shut down the 170-kilometre stretch of road to Hanoi that Kim is due to take.Trump was taking a more conventional route to the meeting on Air Force One and was expected to arrive in Hanoi late Tuesday. He tweeted he was looking forward to a “very productive” second meeting with Kim.The US president again dangled the carrot of economic progress for North Korea if it gives up its nuclear programme. “With complete Denuclearization, North Korea will rapidly become an Economic Powerhouse,” tweeted Trump. “Without it, just more of the same.””Chairman Kim will make a wise decision!”Relations between the two mercurial leaders have undergone a dramatic turnaround, from flinging personal insults and threats of destruction to Trump declaring he had fallen “in love” with Kim after their Singapore get-together.But many North Korea watchers dismissed the Singapore summit as a piece of political theatre that failed to produce a concrete roadmap to denuclearisation and stressed that the Hanoi meeting must deliver more.”The window for diplomatic progress with North Korea will not remain open indefinitely. The second summit between President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un must emphasise substance over pageantry,” said Kelsey Davenport from the Arms Control Association.Concrete details about the summit have been few and far between but White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters aboard Air Force One that the two leaders would have dinner together on Wednesday with close advisors.- ‘No testing, we’re happy’ -Diplomatic progress since Singapore has floundered on the definition of “denuclearisation.”Stephen Biegun, the US Special Representative for North Korea, acknowledged last month that Pyongyang and Washington did not have a “shared agreement of what denuclearisation entails”.The United States has repeatedly demanded the North give up its nuclear arsenal in a final, fully verifiable way.But Pyongyang sees denuclearisation more broadly, seeking an end to sanctions and what it sees as US threats — usually including the American military presence in the South, and sometimes in the wider region.”The ambiguity and obscurity of the term denuclearisation only exacerbates the scepticism about both the US and North Korean commitments to denuclearisation,” wrote Shin Gi-wook, director of the Korea Program at Stanford University.In the run-up to the summit, Trump appeared to lower US demands for Pyongyang, repeatedly saying there was no rush to rid the North of its arsenal as long as missile and nuclear tests stopped.”I don’t want to rush anybody. I just don’t want testing. As long as there’s no testing, we’re happy,” said Trump.He also hinted that more summits would follow the Hanoi meeting, reducing expectations of a dramatic breakthrough in the Vietnamese capital.Pyongyang insists it has already taken major steps, by not testing ballistic missiles or nuclear weapons for more than a year, and blowing up the entrances to its atomic test site.The North also wants increased security guarantees, which could come in the form of a declaration of an end to the 1950-53 Korean War — that ended with an armistice instead of a full peace treaty — or opening liaison offices.”I believe that the possibility is there,” South Korea’s presidential Blue House spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told reporters about a formal declaration to end the war.”There is no way of knowing what kind of declaration it might be, but I believe the US and North Korea may reach an agreement.”Such a declaration would signal the first stage of normalising US-North Korean relations, said Go Myong-hyun of the Asan Institute of Policy Studies, and would be an ideal “politically symbolic step” rather than prematurely agreeing to sanctions relief.Harry Kazianis of the Centre for the National Interest said Trump and Kim need to take “at least one step forward on denuclearisation” in Hanoi.”Nothing would be worse than for either side to come out of the meeting as if it was a waste of time,” he said.
Sri Lanka has expelled over 600 foreign nationals, including around 200 Islamic clerics, since the Easter suicide bombings blamed on a local jihadi group, a minister told AFP Sunday.Home affairs minister Vajira Abeywardena said the clerics had entered the country legally, but amid a security crackdown after the attacks were found to have overstayed their visas, for which fines were imposed and they were expelled from the island.”Considering the current situation in the country, we have reviewed the visas system and took a decision to tighten visa restrictions for religious teachers,” Abeywardena said.”Out of those who were sent out, about 200 were Islamic preachers.”The Easter Sunday bombings that killed 257 people and wounded nearly 500 were led by a local cleric who is known to have travelled to neighbouring India and had made contact with jihadists there.The minister did not give the nationalities of those who have been expelled, but police have said many foreigners who have overstayed their visas since the Easter attacks were from Bangladesh, India, Maldives and Pakistan.”There are religious institutions which have been getting down foreign preachers for decades,” Abeywardena said. “We have no issues with them, but there are some which mushroomed recently. We will pay more attention to them.”The minister said the government was overhauling the country’s visa policy following fears that foreign clerics could radicalise locals for a repeat of the April 21 suicide bombings, which targeted three Christian churches and three luxury hotels.Sri Lanka has imposed a state of emergency since the attacks and given wide powers to troops and police to arrest and detain suspects for long periods.House-to-house searches are being carried out across the country looking for explosives and propaganda material of Islamic extremists.

DES MOINES, Iowa – Hillary Clinton and her late-surging rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders, remained locked in a dead heat with most precincts reporting in Iowa’s Democratic caucuses late Monday, setting up what is likely to become a prolonged nominating contest.Clinton and Sanders effectively battled to a draw in the Iowa caucuses, splitting the vote in the first U.S. presidential selection contest of 2016. The outcome, stunning after Clinton’s onetime dominance over a challenger who entered the race a virtual unknown, means the two Democrats are likely to claim roughly the same number of delegates so far.Even if Clinton prevails, the close contest in Iowa confirms that Sanders’s anti-establishment message has real muscle and appeal. While a narrow victory for the former secretary of state would make good on nearly a year of dutiful campaigning and heavy investment in Iowa, it would also leave residual doubts about her weaknesses among Democratic voters.Sanders leads Clinton in New Hampshire, which votes in seven days, and has money and national support to continue to challenge her for weeks or months beyond that. Clinton remains the favorite to win the Democratic nomination this summer, but a pair of losses to begin the primary season would be likely to leave her hobbled.Clinton took the stage at her election-night party late Monday without immediately claiming victory. Instead, she acknowledged how unresolved her battle with Sanders is.“It is rare that we have the opportunity,” Clinton said, “to have a real contest of ideas, to really think hard about what the Democratic Party stands for, and what we want the future of our country to look like.”Later in her remarks, Clinton said: “I stand here tonight breathing a big sigh of relief. Thank you, Iowa.” Hillary Clinton, with her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and daughter Chelsea, speaks to supporters after the Iowa Caucuses on Feb. 1, 2016. Washington Post photo by Melina Mara.Sanders took the stage at his own party a short time later, and he declared the contest a draw. “Tonight, while the results are still not known, it looks like we are in a virtual tie,” he said. “It looks like we’ll have about half of the Iowa delegates.”Just after midnight, with 95 percent of precincts reporting, Clinton logged 49.8 percent support, and Sanders showed 49.6 percent. Martin O’Malley, the former Maryland governor who suspended his campaign after his dismal showing in Iowa, registered just 0.6 percent – although that number reflected the fact that, in most precincts, his supporters were given the choice to caucus with another candidate after he registered less than 15 percent. It is unclear what will happen to the eight delegates O’Malley did win, which could sway the contest between Clinton and Sanders.In the ballroom where Sanders supporters had gathered, those numbers were interpreted as an overwhelming victory.“This is like the Phoenix rising,” said RoseAnn DeMoro, executive director of National Nurses United, the first major labor union to back Sanders. “No matter what the outcome is, we’ve won. The movement is going to be on steroids now.”DeMoro predicted a major boost of momentum for Sanders heading into New Hampshire and subsequent states, regardless of which candidate eked out the victory.The former secretary of state, senator from New York and first lady began her campaign in Iowa 40 points ahead of Sanders, an independent senator from Vermont and self-described democratic socialist who was initially considered little more than a gadfly. Clinton’s erosion of support sowed doubts about her policy-driven candidacy in a year of populist insurgency and outsider candidates.The former secretary of state’s answer, delivered with increasing urgency in the closing weeks here, was that she has more practical and realistic proposals than Sanders and that she would be the better choice for Democrats to defeat a Republican candidate in the fall.“I think I have the record, the experience, the know-how to get it done,” she said in an interview Monday on NBC’s “Today” show.Her campaign manager, Robby Mook, said in an interview Monday that the close race “tested us. It’s made us better at what we do.”Clinton’s allies also like to say that nothing is more revolutionary than the first female president.Sanders’s extraordinary come-from-way-behind campaign here captured a current of liberal anger at the status quo and rocked Clinton’s by-the-book attempt to redeem her crippling loss in Iowa eight years ago.“I love everything he stands for,” said Cali Wilson, 25, a recent University of Iowa graduate who lives in Mount Pleasant and was wearing a baby-blue “Bernie for President” T-shirt when the candidate came to town.In particular, Wilson cited “his emphasis on the younger generation,” including his promise to end corporate welfare.Heading into the caucus vote, most polls showed Clinton and Sanders within two or three percentage points of each other. Although most polls showed Clinton with a slight edge, the findings were within the margin of error.Turnout appeared high by caucus standards, with long lines to enter schools, firehouses and other voting places. The Iowa Democratic Party said numbers were not expected to reach the historic statewide high of 240,000 in 2008, when Barack Obama delivered a stunning defeat to Clinton here.Network exit polling showed Democratic voters divided sharply along generational and ideological lines. Sanders was fueled by an overwhelming lead among younger and strongly liberal voters, while Clinton was buoyed by broad support from moderates and those older than 50.Clinton’s campaign said from the start that it anticipated a competitive primary. History suggested that it was right, even if Clinton’s fortress-like dominance of the race early on suggested otherwise.A passionate electorateBernie Sanders, 74, tapped into the electorate’s economic anxiety with a call for a “political revolution” aimed at curbing the outsize influence of the “billionaire class” and leveling the playing field for ordinary Americans.His vision of a country with universal health care and free college tuition was dismissed by his critics – including Clinton and her allies – as unworkable. But the ideas resonated with large swaths of voters who were disillusioned with the political process and wary of Clinton.Over the summer, Sanders saw his crowds at rallies around the country swell into the thousands, with supporters turning out for festival-like events with homemade “Feel the Bern” signs. At the rallies, Sanders typically spoke for an hour or more.“You want a radical idea? All right, here’s a radical idea,” the rumpled, white-haired senator shouted at his audience at his final campaign rally Sunday night in Des Moines. “Together, we’re going to create an economy that works for all of us, not just the 1 percent.”Although Clinton has fervent supporters, boasts the magic of her last name and carries the history-making potential to become the first female president, she has run a one-foot-in-front-of-the-other campaign in Iowa that prized mechanics over majesty. She has struggled to inspire the Democratic electorate and expand her rationale for running much beyond her own lengthy résumé.And despite her record-setting popularity as secretary of state, Clinton has spent a good part of her time trying to get past, or explain away, her decision to use a private email system whose security the FBI is now examining.“I don’t think she’s a saint,” said Cindy Roeser, 55, a new Iowa resident and first-time caucus-goer who supported Clinton. “She’s had to make some very difficult choices when there was no easy, good choice to make, but she’s always made the best choice. She’s committed to her causes and people say it’s in her self-interest, but I think she’s done what she had to do to promote the things she believes in.”Sanders faces considerable obstacles once the nominating contest moves beyond New Hampshire.Despite a long history of civil rights activism, Sanders acknowledged early on that he faces a challenge connecting with Latino and black voters, who will be crucial to the outcome of upcoming contests in Nevada and South Carolina.Clinton has enjoyed widespread backing from Democratic elected officials, who will play a formal role in the nominating process as superdelegates. As of Monday, Sanders had been endorsed by only two members of Congress and by none of his fellow senators.Despite vows to get money out of politics, Sanders’s campaign has not suffered from a lack of resources. In the two most recent fundraising quarters, he nearly matched Clinton’s haul. And on Sunday, Sanders’s campaign announced it had taken in an eye-popping $20 million in January alone.His take, fueled by hundreds of thousands of small online donations averaging $27 apiece, enabled Sanders to put on a robust television advertising campaign in Iowa that matched, if not exceeded, Clinton’s in the closing weeks.Aides said they expect a new wave of donations regardless of the outcome Monday.An uptick in attacksFor much of the race, Sanders avoided direct criticism of Clinton. That changed in the fall, when he began to more aggressively draw contrasts with the former secretary of state on issues including Wall Street reform, expansion of Social Security and her late opposition of a pending trade deal that he had vociferously spoken out against much earlier.In the closing weeks of the contest, both camps stepped up their attacks. Sanders pointedly questioned whether Clinton’s acceptance of campaign contributions and speaking fees from Goldman Sachs and others in the financial sector undermined her ability to push for the Wall Street reforms he said were needed to avoid another meltdown similar to 2008.Republican opponents and their allies are sure to cast a loss, or even a near-loss, for Clinton in Iowa as evidence that the presumptive Democratic favorite has feet of clay.The lingering questions surrounding Clinton’s State Department email have added grist to that argument and have contributed to voter unease about her trustworthiness. Even when she was polling much better in Iowa, pollsters found distrust and dislike for Clinton among many of the same voters who said they found her qualified.The State Department said Friday that 22 emails that passed through Clinton’s unorthodox private email server contained “top secret” information. The messages were not marked as such at the time, and her campaign took the unusual step of accusing intelligence agencies of retroactive “overclassification run amok.”Clinton has said she regrets her decision to exclusively use the separate communication system for her government work but maintains that she did nothing wrong. The Justice Department is probing whether secrets were compromised, an open question that hangs over Clinton as the primary voting begins.Clinton, 67, had a lift over the weekend from a laudatory New York Times endorsement, atop those of the Des Moines Register and several smaller Iowa newspapers.The Register editorial, which came out slightly more than a week ahead of the caucus vote, said “no other candidate can match the depth or breadth of her knowledge and experience.”“The presidency is not an entry-level position. Whoever is sworn into office next January must demonstrate not only a deep understanding of the issues facing America, but also possess the diplomatic skills that enable presidents to forge alliances to get things done,” the newspaper wrote.© 2016, The Washington Post Facebook Comments Related posts:Sanders to win Maine caucuses while Clinton nears half the delegates needed for nomination US candidate Bernie Sanders sues party as Democrats on verge of open warfare Bernie Sanders ‘wins’ Costa Rica in Democrats Global Primary Bernie Sanders’ CAFTA reversal pledge worries Costa Rica businesses
Sri Lanka expertise and service with a smileTruly tailored itinerariesUnique experiencesCompetitive pricing, enjoyable interactions and professional quotes & documentationSpecial packages being released for the Australian marketAgent famil 2018Five years ago, Mark Snoxell’s love affair with Sri Lanka commenced as he journeyed the country and indulged in a private cooking tour for one. That’s when he knew that this was more than just a fleeting holiday fling and decided he wanted to share this wonderful destination with like-minded people.“What I did learn is, like the India market, what is promised by so many travel providers on the internet, couldn’t be more further from the truth in reality.”It’s taken Exposure Downunder more than a year to finalise a portfolio of Sri Lankan partners and products that Snoxell truly believes represent the company’s values and that suit its discerning network of industry professionals in both Australia and New Zealand.“I knew that Tour Blue was an excellent fit relatively quickly as it was evident they are all genuinely passionate about creating wonderful experiences for their guests. This was backed by awesome content, competitive pricing and good, easy to manage, documentation for agents.“They are 100% operated in Sri Lanka and have built close working relationships with smaller suppliers across the country, bringing truly unique experiences to the market. The big well-known operators just can’t do that.”An example of this is where clients can take a private walk through the lesser known Kanneliya rainforest, alongside one of Sri Lanka’s main rivers, finishing with a hearty authentic Sri Lankan lunch of rice and curry, cooked by your tracker’s wife.

Gaines released a cookbook, “Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering,” on Tuesday, April 24. (Photo by Brian Ach/Invision/AP) NEW YORK, N.Y. – Even though “Fixer Upper” has come to an end, Joanna Gaines is still going strong.The designing half of the just-wrapped HGTV show is showcasing her cooking skills with the release of her “Magnolia Table” cookbook. She showcased tasty food made from the book’s recipes at a recent lunch in New York as hubby Chip cracked jokes and playfully teased his pregnant wife while prepping biscuits in front of guests.The pair talked about the inspiration for the book, which was finding time to spend time together with their four children.“I just craved those moments around the table with our family,” she said. “If we weren’t intentional about it, life would just really fly by really fast.”“Fixer Upper” has been one of HGTV’s most successful shows, but the couple decided to call it quits after the show’s fifth season, which wrapped up earlier this month.Gaines says while she’s not slowing down, she is looking forward to some downtime when her fifth child is born in a few months.“I think once this baby comes along, I’m really hoping to find time. That’s what we’re really just preparing for, just this new baby coming along and cherishing that time as a family,” she said. The Gaines also have a home decorating line at Target; a restaurant; a bed and breakfast in their Waco, Texas, town; and a magazine.“My last baby she’s eight (years old) now, so I think this is something I’m learning all over again, even in buying all the stuff — what do I need for a newborn? It’s been a really fun season,” she said.While “Fixer Upper” won’t have any new episodes, it will air in reruns on HGTV, and wood craftsman Clint Harp is getting a spinoff on the DIY channel called “Wood Work.”Chip Gaines says the couple is close to Harp and his wife, Kelly. He hopes the couple takes time to enjoy the experience of the show.“It feels like it started, then it was over, and you kind of look back and you notice all of these once-in-a-lifetime experiences that had happened in your wake, but it’s really hard to appreciate them because it felt like they were stacked one on top of the other, then they were coming at you at the speed of light,” he said. “Somehow figure out how to slow the experience down somehow and enjoy the ride.” ‘Fixer Upper’ star debuts cookbook, talks post-show plans
Attorney-general Costas Clerides announced on Tuesday there will be no prosecutions against journalists over the publication of leaked emails belonging to a senior state attorney.“After studying the findings of the investigation, the attorney-general judged that under the circumstances of the case in question, it is not in the public interest to prosecute anyone,” a written statement said.Two separate probes had been launched in November following the publication of the hacked emails by daily Politis, which found them on a Russian website.The emails showed Loizidou’s excessive zeal in pursuing extradition requests against Russian nationals, some politically motivated, by the prosecutor-general of the Russian Federation.Loizidou, who was suspended pending the investigation, sought and was granted an injunction prohibiting the paper from publishing the emails. She also sued Politis claiming that it had violated her privacy.A disciplinary probe later found that she could be liable for dumping her laptop abroad without securing its contents and for using her personal email for official business.A separate investigation was carried out into the publication and republication of the emails by the media, prompting a reaction from journalists.Clerides said the case in question raised two kinds of public interest – one was safeguarding personal communications and the other was the public’s right to be informed.“Weighing the two… and after taking into account the relevant national and European case law, as well as more general legal principles, the attorney-general judged it would not serve the public interest if he launched a criminal prosecution,” the statement said.Clerides reiterated that taking statements from the journalists involved was not tantamount to prosecution and everyone was obliged to assist the investigation.“No one is exempted from this duty since no one is above the law, apart from the cases where immunity is provided for by the constitution.” You May LikeJournalistateThe Obama’s Car Is Far From What You’d ExpectJournalistateUndoUpbeat News[Photos] The Greatest NHL Players of All Time Ranked 1-50Upbeat NewsUndoGOOD FOODHere’s why you should eat 10 dates everyday!GOOD FOODUndo Film review: Child’s Play ***UndoAt least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoKorkolis brings magic to the stageUndoby Taboolaby Taboola
