Among those listed by the organisation are Kamel Gaci, a reporter with the daily “Le Soir d’Algérie” (“Algeria’s Evening”), and G. Lotfi, a Djelfa-based correspondent for the daily “Liberté” (“Freedom”).Gaci has been charged with “failure to report a fugitive”, following the publication of his interview with an escaped convict in the columns of “Le Soir d’Algérie”. The fugitive, who happens to be a former police officer, contacted Gaci through the newspaper two weeks after his escape from El Khemis prison, saying he wanted to tell his story. The journalist notified the authorities of his interview with the fugitive, but did not say where it was to take place. The day after the article’s publication, the Bedjaïa Prosecutor’s Office brought charges against Gaci. The court granted the journalist a conditional release, placing him under judicial surveillance pending the verdict of his trial, in the upcoming weeks.The case of Lofti, a Djelfa-based correspondent for the daily “Liberté”, further serves to illustrate the pressures faced by correspondents outside the capital. The journalist was given a three-month suspended sentence and ordered to pay 200,000 dinars (approx. 2,300 euros) in damages tothe Djelfa police chief after the latter filed a complaint against Lofti over a 14 April article he’d written on the suicide of a local businessman. The police chief also filed defamation charges against journalist and human rights advocate Hafnaoui Ghoul, resulting in a six-month sentence for Ghoul on 26 May.Reporters Without Borders also condemns local authorities’ failure to act in the handling of certain cases, in particular that of the daily “Ouest Info” (“West Info”). The newspaper filed a complaint with authorities after being cheated in the purchase of its new computer equipment. The paper now fears it may be forced to close because the complaint was not dealt with in time.

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The myriad issues plaguing the Illinois Condominium Law arena have been subject to several recent opinions from two separate divisions within the 1st District Appellate Court. Unfortunately, the contrasting court rulings ultimately serve to confuse more than clarify. The string of new cases all focus on a particular section of the Illinois Condominium Property Act, which provides that a foreclosure sale purchaser must pay condominium assessments “from and after the first day of the month” following the foreclosure sale in order to “confirm the extinguishment” of a condominium association’s lien. The Illinois Supreme Court, in 1010 Lake Shore Assoc. v. Deutsche Bank National Trust Co., 2015 IL 118372, had previously ruled that a condominium association’s lien for pre-foreclosure sale assessments was owed in full by a foreclosure sale purchaser who failed to pay any assessments, as the lien’s extinguishment was never confirmed under the statute. In 2017’s 5510 Sheridan Road Condominium Association v. U.S. Bank, 2017 IL App (1st) 160279), where payment was made approximately seven months after confirmation, the Sixth Division 1st District Appellate Court ruled that foreclosure sale purchasers are not subject to any payment deadline in order to confirm the extinguishment of a condominium association’s lien, stating that if the General Assembly had wished to include a strict deadline, they certainly would have done so.In contrast, just months later, the Second Division of the same Appellate Court in Country Club Estates Condominium Assoc. v. Bayview Loan Servicing, LLC, 2017 IL App (1st) 162459, instead ruled that “prompt” payment was required. The court stated that to the extent 5510 Sheridan Road “may be read as imposing no timing deadline whatsoever on foreclosure buyers, we find that conclusion to be inconsistent with 1010 Lake Shore.” The court further implied that seven months may be too long, absent extenuating circumstances, but remanded to the lower court for a ruling on whether prompt payment had in fact occurred. Seemingly in response, earlier this year the Sixth Division fired back with Quadrangle House Condominium Association v. U.S. Bank, N.A., 2018 IL App (1st) 171713, where payment was made approximately nine months after confirmation. In rejecting the notion that payment must be “prompt,” the court stated that 1010 Lake Shore “did not hold that prompt payment is a condition precedent” and that the “payment of post-purchase assessments, whenever made, is the step necessary” to confirm extinguishment.On the heels of this ruling, this same Sixth Division issued another opinion, V&T Investment Corporation v. West Columbia Place Condominium Association, 2018 IL App (1st) 170436, where partial payment was made approximately four months after sale yet less than two months after confirmation. The court first confirmed that assessments were owed as of the first month following the sale, not the first month following confirmation of the sale. However, rather confusingly, the court then looked to whether the payment was “prompt,” citing to Country Club Estates to determine that payment was indeed prompt, as it was made shortly after the confirmation of the sale.Taking full advantage of the apparent confusion in its neighboring division, the Second Division of Illinois’ 1st District Appellate Court responded in June of 2018 with U.S. Bank, N.A. v. Quadrangle House Condominium Association, 2018 IL App (1st) 171711. To muddy the waters even further, this new case involves virtually the same parties as Quadrangle House Condominium Association v. U.S. Bank, N.A., 2018 IL App (1st) 171713, decided by the Sixth Division earlier in 2018 on a separate unit—thereby creating two “Quadrangle” cases out of the same district, in the same year, with vastly different interpretations. Although the earlier Sixth Division’s Quadrangle held that promptness wasn’t even a requirement, the new Quadrangle by the Second Division specifically addressed the Sixth Division’s apparent change of tune in V&T Investment Corporation v. West Columbia Place Condominium Association before reasserting its position that promptness is, in fact, a necessity. In its analysis, the new Quadrangle Court pointed out that sale confirmation occurred in the month following the foreclosure sale, with payments to the association beginning less than two months thereafter, concluding that payment under this factual situation was prompt. The court’s focus on the sale confirmation date, rather than merely the date of the sale itself, implies that it remains an important factor in determining promptness. However, it seems clear that the only thing truly certain in this evolving area of law is that resolution is far from certain.

The two rekindled their partnership on Sunday and are already plotting to stop Djokovic, the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to hold all four grand slam titles at the same time.The Serb has won the French and Australian titles this year and victory at Wimbledon and the US Open in August would give him a calendar-year grand slam. Adding gold at the Olympics in Rio would see him seal the ‘golden slam’.“To me there is a career Grand Slam, then all four in a row, next the calendar year grand slam and on the top the golden slam (including the Olympic gold medal). Djokovic has a chance to do that this year,” Lendl told British media.“Obviously Andy and I would like to ruin those plans if we can.“We know Andy has it in him. So now the question is ‘can he do it again?’ I think that’s an easier question to answer than ‘can you do it at all?’”Lendl and Murray’s renewed partnership began with a victory over Frenchman Nicolas Mahut at the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club, the Wimbledon warm-up event, on Tuesday.The Scot meets countryman Aljaz Bedene on Thursday, the first time he has played another Brit in competition for ten years, since losing to Tim Henman in Bangkok in 2006.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Andy Murray has what it takes to ruin Novak Djokovic’s dreams of sweeping to a ‘golden slam’, according to coach Ivan Lendl.As the Scot focuses on winning a record fifth title at Queen’s, Lendl believes Murray can also halt Djokovic’s march on another grand slam by regaining his Wimbledon crown.Murray has not won a Grand Slam since parting ways with Lendl in March 2014 after two years in which he won the 2012 Olympic gold, the 2012 US Open and the 2013 Wimbledon titles.
