Antigua PM rebuffs US report

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Share 109 Views   no discussions InternationalNewsPrintRegional Antigua PM rebuffs US report by: – March 17, 2017center_img Tweet Share Antigua’s Prime Minister, Gaston Browne(Antigua Observer) A 2017 US State Department report that gave a scathing assessment of Antigua & Barbuda, has been fiercely rebuffed by Prime Minister Gaston Browne.The International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) Volume II on Money Laundering and Financial Crimes, which was released in March 2017, described the nation’s Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) as “among the most lax in the world”.It also highlighted allegations by US prosecutors of a “corruption scandal involving the payout of close to $8 million in bribes by Brazilian construction contractor Odebrecht”.The mention of the alleged US $8 million in bribes is a doubling of the previous US $4 million bribe alleged. The US report noted that “the corruption allegations involve two high-level officials and two offshore banks in Antigua and Barbuda”.Browne dismissed the additional $4 million as an error on the part of the document’s authors, and labelled sections of the report “misleading” and “incorrect”.He said his government is prepared to challenge claims that the country’s CIP “remains among the most lax in the world”.The Antigua & Barbuda Labour Party (ABLP) leader said in Parliament, on Thursday, that it has written to the US State Department expressing its dismay with the “deception” in the INCSR 2017 report.Browne quoted a section of the letter which read: “The government of Antigua & Barbuda deeply regrets that the report misrepresents the situation in Antigua & Barbuda with regard to its Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP) and its anti-money laundering and counter financing of terrorism regime.”last_img read more

“Roseanne’s” Emma Kenney on playing Darlene’s “bratty” teen: “You guys will eventually love Harris”

first_img Related ABC/Robert Trachtenberg(NEW YORK) — On the new season of Roseanne, Emma Kenney plays Darlene’s daughter Harris with equal parts Darlene sarcasm and Roseanne savageness.The breakout young actress tells ABC Radio that while you may not love Harris now, you soon will.“Harris definitely has a character arc this season,” Kenney says. “I think that in the beginning of the season she starts out, she’s coming from Chicago, a big city, living with her mom and her brother, her friends, her school, everything, you know? Her life. And then she gets forced to live with her grandparents in the middle of the suburbs of Illinois, so I don’t think she’s too happy about that at first.”“But you guys will eventually love Harris,” she adds. “Right now she’s being a bit of a bratty teenager…I call Harris ‘Darlene’s karma.’”The characters may not always been likable, but Kenney says that’s part of what makes it so relatable to viewers – even after all these years.“I think that the show genuinely shows real family bond, love, energy, having their back, standing up for each other, real family disagreements,” she says. “It’s not like we’re sugarcoating anything on the show.”She continues, “I think the world needs that right now — just like a realistic family so people don’t feel terrible about themselves if they’re not living the Gossip Girl lifestyle.”Roseanne pulled in massive ratings in its first and second weeks back on TV, quickly earning it a season 11 pick-up.Kenney says going into the next season, she’d love to see Harris in more scenes with her grandfather, Dan. “I think it may just be because I love John Goodman,” she says. “Also Laurie Metcalf. Aunt Jackie is my favorite character.” Roseanne airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMaticolast_img read more
