#AceFinanceDesk – The Russian government and the Bank of Russia have agreed on a future regime for cryptocurrencies : ON February 18, they presented a draft law on the circulation of cryptocurrencies in the Russian economy, reported the national newspaper Kommersant. Cryptocurrencies will be recognized in this draft as an analogue of currencies like dollars, and not as digital financial assets. This should lower the tax burden of owning cryptocurrencies. Their circulation in the Russian economy will be possible only with full identification, through the banking system or licensed intermediaries according to

Users will have to declare operations equivalent to more than 600 thousand rubles (7,027 euros). Transactions outside the legal sector for such amounts will become a criminal offense and an aggravating circumstance under the Criminal Code, fines will be introduced for the illegal acceptance of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. Mining would not be affected by the draft project.

The Russian federal government, after meetings with Deputy Prime Minister, Chief of Staff of the White House Dmitry Grigorenko, published the approved “Concept for regulating the mechanisms for organizing the circulation of digital currencies.” 

Russia has been discussing the new status of cryptocurrencies and digital currencies in the country since the summer of 2021. On January 20, 2021 the Bank of Russia released a consultative report proposing to ban the circulation of cryptocurrencies in the Russian Federation. According to the Central Bank, cryptoization leads to “undermining the circulation of money and the loss of the sovereignty of the national currency”, and also results in high investment risks for citizens.

KABUL: MOPW Officials Interested In Building Afghan Railways With Ukraine

#AceNewsReport – Feb.08: Officials from the Ministry of Public Works (MoPW) have held talks with a technical team representing a number of Ukrainian companies about establishing railways in Afghanistan.

#AceDailyNews says according to TOLO Business News Report: Ukrainian Companies Interested in Building Afghan Railways:

Although the ministry has not specifically said in which parts of the country the railways will be built, it said on Monday that a technical team of Ukrainian companies has come to Kabul and met with the ministry’s officials, having shown an interest in building railways in the country.

“The Ukrainian delegation had a meeting with the ministry’s leadership team. They discussed the transit of goods, enhancing the capacities of railways’ engineers, the security of the Mazar-Hairatan railway, and building railways,” Hamidullah Misbah, the spokesman of the ministry said.

Meanwhile, a number of economic analysts said connecting Afghanistan to other countries through railways will result in an increase of transit and trade.

“We should have railways in most of our provinces. Most of our borders (ports) should be connected through railways with the neighboring countries and from there with the world,” said Khairuddin Mayel, deputy head of Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Investment (ACCI).

According to the ACCI, by the extension of railways in the country, Afghanistan’s exports will increase and goods’ exports will become easy and quick.

“The extension of the railway is in the interest of the people of Afghanistan. We want our railway to extend. After sea shipping, railway is the cheapest and quickest means of transportation,” said Mohammad Yunus Momand, ACCI acting director.

Currently, Afghanistan is connected to Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan through the Hairatan-Aqina railway in the north, and to Iran through the Khawaf-Herat railway in the west.

According to officials, efforts are underway to connect Afghanistan to South Asia via railway.

UK: JUST IN: IOPC REPORT: An investigation into allegations of fraud against Lloyds Bank is being examined by a police watchdog #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Feb.06: Avon and Somerset Police has referred itself to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) after claims that information was leaked to the bank.

#AceFinanceDesk says according to BBC (England) News Report: Police watchdog to examine alleged leaks against Lloyds Bank By Steve Brodie
at BBC West

Lloyds Bank branch
Avon and Somerset Police has referred itself to a watchdog after a complaint alleging leaks to Lloyds Bank

It relates to a long-running inquiry into allegations of fraud at the Lloyds Recoveries unit in Bristol.

A police spokesperson confirmed it had made a mandatory referral to the IOPC following a complaint.

“We can confirm we have received a complaint from a member of the public alleging serious corruption. 

“Our professional standards department have subsequently made a mandatory referral to the IOPC, as it is required to do, when such allegations are made,” said Avon and Somerset Police.

Police have been asked to look again at allegations made against Lloyds Recoveries

Documents appear to show that information about a confidential meeting between two senior officers and alleged victim, Kashif Shabir, was passed to the bank without his knowledge.

The documents show that Lloyds executives wrote in an internal memo: “They are meeting with Mr Shabir on Monday to tell him that they intend to close their enquiry with no further action intended” before the meeting had taken place.

However, Mr Shabir said that at the meeting, police told him that his evidence was “compelling” and fraud investigators were being instructed. 

Mr Shabir has met with chief constable Sarah Crew and demanded a “full investigation”.

“It is quite clear. Information has been passed back to the bank. Evidence that could also be in both the interest of Lloyds and the police, if indeed, they have been working together,” said Mr Shabir.

Avon and Somerset’s police and crime commissioner, Mark Shelford, recently asked the force to look again at 92 similar allegations of fraud against Lloyds Recoveries.

“I am concerned about the severity of these allegations, but I am extremely supportive of Avon and Somerset Police’s decision to refer this matter directly to the IOPC,” said Mr Shelford. 

Concerns ‘thoroughly investigated’

Lloyds said Mr Shabir’s allegations have been reviewed a number of times and found to be baseless. 

“Concerns in relation to a Bristol unit have been raised by third parties on a number of occasions in the past,” a spokesperson said. 

“In each instance these concerns have been thoroughly investigated by the Group and we have not found any evidence to support them. 

“These concerns have also been raised with Avon and Somerset Police and they informed us in early 2020 that the information provided to the police did not show evidence of criminal wrongdoing and there was no ongoing investigation into Lloyds Bank.”

The IOPC now has five days to decide whether to investigate the claims itself, hand over the case to another police force or send the case back to Avon and Somerset Police for an internal inquiry.

(MELBOURNE) JUST IN: Crown Casino has been hit with a $1 million fine for failing to vet foreign high rollers and scrutinise junket operators, some of whom have links to organised crime gangs #AceNewsdesk report

#AceFinanceReport – Apr.27: Crown had failed to gather the necessary information to make an “informed decision” about the people behind the junkets and did not check or verify the relevant information directly with those involved:

@acenewsservices

Crown Casino in Melbourne fined $1 million over junket operations: The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) said Crown had failed to comply with its regulatory obligations: Junket operators bring high rollers from mainland Asia to Australia to gamble, and some have been linked to organised crime.

ABC News: Posted 3h ago, updated 1h ago

Crown was required to implement a “robust process” to consider the ongoing probity of the operators.

“The commission concluded that in respect of the analysed individuals, the processes implemented by Crown were not robust,” the commission said.

The commission also said Crown had failed to maintain the necessary records relating to junkets.

“This failure meant it was unclear how certain decisions were reached by Crown and whether such decisions were made with due regard to Crown’s regulatory obligations,” the commission said.

Ross Kennedy said Crown’s breach occurred over an extended period of time.(ABC News: Darryl Torpy)

Crown barred from starting up junket operations again

The million-dollar fine is the maximum available under the Casino Control Act.

The commission has also issued a letter of censure to Crown which prohibits the casino from recommencing junket operations.

Ross Kennedy, the chairman of the VCGLR, said the penalty reflected the seriousness of the matter.

“And the fact that Crown’s failure to implement a robust process occurred over an extended period,” he said.

“Robust processes must be implemented to ensure that Crown’s Melbourne casino remains free from criminal influence and exploitation.”

Crown chair Helen Coonan said the company continued to “engage” with the VCGLR and the Victorian government.  

“As part of this reform agenda, Crown has already ceased dealing with all junket operators,” she said. 

Crown’s suitability to run the Melbourne casino is being tested at a royal commission which is due to report back to the Victorian government by August 1 this year.

It followed a damning NSW inquiry which found the gambling giant was not suitable to hold a casino licence.

That inquiry, led by commissioner Patricia Bergin, said the company needed to make sweeping cultural changes if it wanted to operate the new casino at Barangaroo.

Tim Costello, the chief advocate for the Alliance for Gambling Reform, said that inquiry also found casinos were used to launder the profits of crime.

“It’s the drugs sold to our kids. It’s the trafficking of women. It’s the corrupting of law and order,” he said.

“All of us get hurt because of this crime. We should be very worried.”

Fine is ‘loose change’ for Crown

Greens leader Samantha Ratnam said the fine was too little, too late after years of inaction by both the state and federal regulators.

“It shouldn’t take years of damning allegations and the announcement of a royal commission to finally spur our regulator to act,” she said.

“While the fine itself will likely be nothing more than loose change to Crown, we hope this provides the government with yet another sign that it’s time to break up the gambling giant for good.”

Independent MP Andrew Wilkie called the million-dollar fine “laughable”.

“The VCGLR really should be handing out fines in the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars because that’s the only way to rein in a company like Crown,” he said.

“It’s wilful ignorance that they didn’t do the checks, and didn’t want to do the checks.”

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know

that adversity reveals genius, prosperity conceals it.

Horace said that, and he was right. During any time of
adversity, your genius will be revealed, as will that of all civilisation.

We will find that there is another way to live other than ‘dog eat
dog,’ and another worthy goal other than
‘bigger, better, more.’

See this time, then, as a challenge to your ingenuity
and an invitation from life to rediscover what is truly
important: love, family, friends, and…
the journey of the soul.

It’s nice being imperfect ~

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to comprehend

That there is something ‘wrong’ with everything.

No matter what you are looking at, you can find something wrong with it.

Something imperfect,
Something that is not okay with you.

Don’t worry, if you look hard enough you’ll find it.

There is also something ‘right’ with everything.


No matter what you are looking at,
you can find something right with it,
something perfect.

There remains, then, only one question:


What are you going to look at?

What are you choosing to heed?

What is your philosophy?


I’ll bet you already know what God’s philosophy is

THE TEST – Gandhi

So the ships were brought into the dock and the passengers began to go ashore. But Mr Escombe had sent word to the captain that, as the whites were highly enraged against me and my life was in danger, my family and I should be advised to land at dusk, when the Port Superintendent Mr Tatum would escort us home.

The captain communicated the message to me. and I agreed to act accordingly. But scarcely half an hour after this, Mr Laughton came to the captain. He said: ‘I would like to take Mr Gandhi with me, should he have no objection. As the legal adviser of the Agent Company, I tell you that you are not bound to carry out the message you have received from Mr Escombe.’

After this, he came to me and said somewhat to this effect: ‘If you are not afraid, I suggest that Mrs Gandhi and the children should drive to Mr Rustomji’s house, whilst you and I follow them on foot. I do not at all like the idea of your entering the city like a thief in the night.

I do not think there is any fear of anyone hurting you. Everything is quiet now. The whites have all dispersed. But in any case, I am convinced that you ought not to enter the city stealthily.’ I readily agreed.

My wife and children drove safely to Mr Rustomji’s place. With the captain’s permission, I went ashore with Mr Laughton. Mr Rustomji’s house was about two miles from the dock. As soon as we landed, some youngsters recognized me and shouted ‘Gandhi, Gandhi.’ About half a dozen men rushed to the spot and joined in the shouting.

Mr Laughton feared that the crowd might swell and hailed a rickshaw. I had never liked the idea of being in a rickshaw. This was to be my first experience.

But the youngsters would not let me get into it. They frightened the rickshaw boy out of his life, and he took to his heels. As we went ahead, the crowd continued to swell, until it became impossible to proceed further. They first caught hold of Mr Laughton and separated us. Then they pelted me with stones, brickbats and rotten eggs.

Someone snatched away my turban, whilst others began to batter and kick me. I fainted and caught hold of the front railings of a house and stood there to get my breath. But it was impossible. They came upon me boxing and battering. The wife of the Police Superintendent, who knew me, happened to be passing by.

The brave lady came up, opened her parasol though there was no sun then, and stood between the crowd and me.

This checked the fury of the mob, as it was difficult for them to deliver blows on me without harming Mrs Alexander.

Meanwhile, an Indian youth who witnessed the incident had run to the police station. The Police Superintendent Mr Alexander sent a posse of men to ring me round and escort me safely to my destination.

They arrived in time. The police station lay on our way. As we reached there, the Superintendent asked me to take refuge in the station, but I gratefully declined the offer, ‘They are sure to quiet down when they realize their mistake,’ I said. ‘I have trust in their sense of fairness.’ Escorted by the police, I arrived without further harm at Mr Rustomji’s place.

I had bruises all over, but no abrasions except in one place. Dr Dadibarjor, the ship’s doctor, who was on the spot, rendered the best possible help.

There was quiet inside, but outside the whites surrounded the house. The night was coming on, and the yelling crowd was shouting, ‘We must have Gandhi.’ The quick-sighted Police Superintendent was already there trying to keep the crowds under control, not by threats, but by humouring them.

But he was not entirely free from anxiety.

He sent me a message to this effect: ‘If you would save your friend’s house and property and also your family, you should escape from the house in disguise, as I suggest.’ Thus on the same day, I was faced with two contradictory positions.

When danger to life had been no more than imaginary, Mr Laughton advised me to launch forth openly. I accepted the advice. When the danger was quite real, another friend gave me the contrary advice, and I accepted that too. Who can say whether I did so because I saw that my life was in jeopardy, or because I did not want to put my friend’s life and property or the lives of my wife and children in danger?

Who can say for certain that I was right both when I faced the crowd in the first instance bravely, as it was said, and when I escaped from it in disguise?

It is idle to adjudicate upon the right and wrong of incidents that have already happened. It is useful to understand them and, if possible, to learn a lesson from them for the future. It is difficult to say for certain how a particular man would act in a particular set of circumstances.

We can also see that judging a man from his outward act is no more than a doubtful inference since it is not based on sufficient data. Be that as it may, the preparations for escape made me forget my injuries.

As suggested by the Superintendent, I put on an Indian constable’s uniform and wore on my head a Madrasi scarf, wrapped around a plate to serve as a helmet. Two detectives accompanied me, one of them disguised as an Indian merchant and with his face painted to resemble that of an Indian.

I forget the disguise of the other. We reached a neighbouring shop by a by-lane and, making our way through the gunny bags piled in the godown, escaped by the gate of the shop and threaded our way through the crowd to a carriage that had been kept for me at the end of the street.

In this, we drove off to the same police station where Mr Alexander had offered me refuge a short time before, and I thanked him and the detective officers.

Whilst I had been thus effecting my escape Mr Alexander had kept the crowd amused by singing the tune: ‘Hang old Gandhi On the sour apple tree.’

When he was informed of my safe arrival at the police station, he thus broke the news to the crowd: ‘Well, your victim had made good his escape through a neighbouring shop.

You had better go home now.’ Some of them were angry, others laughed, some refused to believe the story. ‘Well then,’ said the Superintendent, ‘If you do not believe me, you may appoint one or two representatives, whom I am ready to take inside the house,

If they succeed in finding out Gandhi, I will gladly deliver him to you. But if they fail, you must disperse.

I am sure that you have no intention of destroying Mr Rustomji’s house or of harming Mr Gandhi’s wife and children.’

The crowd sent their representatives to search the house. They soon returned with disappointing news, and the crowd broke up, at last, most of them admiring the Superintendent’s tactful handling of the situation, and a few fretting and fuming.

The late Mr Chamberlain, who was then Secretary of State for the Colonies, cabled asking the Natal Government to prosecute my assailants.

Mr Escombe sent for me, expressed his regret for the injuries I had sustained, and said: ‘Believe me, I cannot feel happy over the least little injury done to your person.

You had a right to accept Mr Laughton’s advice and to face the worst, but I am sure that, if you had considered my suggestion favourably, these sad occurrences would not have happened.

If you can identify the assailants, I am prepared to arrest and prosecute them. Mr Chamberlain also desires me to do so.’

To which I gave the following reply: ‘I do not want to prosecute anyone. I may be able to identify one or two of them, but what is the use of getting them punished?

Besides, I do not hold the assailants to blame. They were given to understand that I had made exaggerated statements in India about the whites in Natal and calumniated them.

If they believed these reports, it is no wonder that they were enraged. The leaders and, if you will permit me to say so, you are to blame. You could have guided the people properly, but you also believed Reuter and assumed that I must have indulged in exaggeration. I do not want to bring anyone to book.

I am sure that, when the truth becomes known, they will be sorry for their conduct.’ ‘Would you mind giving me this in writing?’ said Mr Escombe. ‘Because I shall have to cable to Mr Chamberlain to that effect.

I do not want you to make any statement in haste. You may, if you like, consult Mr Laughton and your other friends before you come to a final decision.

I may confess, however, that, if you waive the right of bringing your assailants to book, you will considerable help me in restoring quiet, besides enhancing your reputation.’

‘Thank you,’ said I. ‘I need not consult anyone. I had made my decision in the matter before I came to you.

It is my conviction that I should not prosecute the assailants, and I am prepared this moment to reduce my decision to writing.’ With this, I gave him the necessary statement.
