The Colombian Attorney General’s office and Colonel Clauder Antonio Cardona Cataño, Commander in charge of the Villavicencio Metropolitan Police, led the investigation, which lasted more than two years. Fecoljuegos president Evert Montero Cárdenas commended the Attorney General and Cataño for their work. Topics: Casino & games Legal & compliance Casino regulation Poker Legal Regulation Email Address Members of the group were based all across the country, with two men known as “Carlos” and “Juan Carlos”, from the central Colombian city of Villavicencio, leading the operation. A Colombia-based illegal online gambling ring bringing in revenue of COP3bn (£640,000/$863,000/€711,0000) per month has been shut down, industry association La Federación Colombiana de Empresarios de Juegos de Suerte y Azar (Fecoljuegos) has announced. Regions: LATAM Colombia Of the COP3bn in monthly revenue the group made, around COP500m will be set aside to pay gambling taxes, which go towards health services and sport.

Centrica (LSE: CNA) has been in trouble with shareholders for some time, with its shares falling 84% over the past five years. The Covid-19 crash has piled on the problems too, and the Centrica share price has lost 52% so far in 2020 alone. Things could have been worse though, and the price is actually up around 45% since the year’s low in April.Job lossesLast week, the British Gas owner announced plans to shed 5,000 jobs from its global workforce of 27,000. That includes cutting Centrica’s senior leadership team of 40 by half, as part of new boss Chris O’Shea’s restructuring plans. It seems like an unfortunate but necessary step on the path to long-term recovery to me. The City seems to have seen it that way too, as the Centrica share price has put on 8% since that news.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Centrica has seen its earnings declining over the past few years, in part due to competition and the loss of British Gas customers. The energy price cap and falling gas prices made things even worse, leading to a hefty loss in 2019. The firm slashed its dividend too, from 12p per share in 2018, to just 1.5p.Centrica share priceTo me, preserving the dividend at 12p throughout the earnings slump was a sign of poor management. It’s something that might keep shareholders happy in the short term, but sadly the short term often seems to be the only thing some company managers are interested in.If it was a “keep paying and hope things get better” strategy, then it was doomed to failure. Shareholders might have kept on pocketing their annual income for a while, but they suffered a catastrophic fall in the Centrica share price at the same time.The arrival of a new boss can be a good time for renewal at a company. There can be less reluctance to face up to its previous failures (because they were the old management’s fault, right?) O’Shea took over the top job only in April, having previously been Centrica’s finance director. That gives me hope, as he’s been very much at the sharp end of Centrica’s profit and balance sheet catastrophe. Focusing on the firm’s liquidity is, for me, the best thing he can do for the long-term future of the Centrica share price.RestructuringThe job losses are being combined with a simplification of a number of the firm’s practices. I see it as a clearly-needed restructuring. But there’s one other thing Centrica needs to fix — customer service. If the new boss can improve that, I think we really could be at the beginning of a steady Centrica share price recovery.My overall feeling is that Centrica has been at rock bottom this year. And I’m hoping the pummelling the market has suffered from the Covid-19 downturn will provide a wake-up call across the economy.The lesson is that long-term attention to the balance sheet should be at the core of any business. I think that lesson has been learned here. And, to me, the low Centrica share price indicates a long-term buy. Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images.

After receiving requests for extension from various quarters including various Bar Associations and State Bar Councils, the General Council of the BCI resolved thus: “After consideration, the General Council of the Bar Council of India, has resolved to extend the last date for submission of the details of every practicing Advocate of the country sought as per the requirement of the e-Committee of the Supreme Court of India, till 31st December, 2020.” The Council has requested all Individual Advocates, who have not yet submitted their details, to send their details through respective Bar Associations or through respective Bar Councils under whom they are enrolled. “They have to submit their details to the respective Bar Associations of which they are members and for convenience and ease, the entire list shall be required to be sent by/through the Bar Associations to BCI in word/excel format,” the Council had earlier stated. Reiterating the same, it said, “Even earlier too, the communication by the Bar Council of India has been addressed to Bar Associations and to Bar Councils only and Individual Advocates were specifically requested not to send any email with his/her detail to BCI by email. Individual Advocates should submit their details through Bar Associations or through Bar Councils as it will not be feasible to gather such required details of Advocates if they are sent Individually, and sending it through Bar Associations and Bar Councils would be appropriate and feasible.” Further the Council has clarified that it is not mandatory to furnish the information on letterheads of concerned Advocates and furthermore, it is not mandatory to append signatures of the Advocate/s furnishing such information by email, if the same is not feasible. It is reiterated here again that this scheme/proposal is for the benefit of all the Advocates. The Supreme Court has devised a method of communication with the Bar in 22 different regional languages of the country; the e-Committee has also been training the Lawyers for e-filings, virtual hearings etc. other necessary information/reports shall also be made available to Advocates. The Council has asked the Bar Associations to be more active, as the details which have been sought, may not all be available with the State Bar Councils. Vide letter dated July 24, 2020 the BCI had requested all the District and Taluka Bar Associations across the country to supply the details of all practising Advocates who are members of their respective Bar Associations, for perusal of the e-Committee of the Supreme Court of India. BCI Asks District Bar Associations To Mandatorily Furnish Details Of Advocates Registered With Them This exercise has been made mandatory and such Advocates who fail to furnish the requisite information to their respective Bar Association, which in turn will forward the data to the BCI, shall be treated as “Non-Practicing Advocate by the Council”. All the concerned bodies were first given 15 days’ time to complete the exercise. This period was later extended till November 15 in view of several requests made to the Council.

An EU ruling on working time could deepen the NHS staffing crisis bycracking down on the number of hours junior doctors are allowed to work. In a European test case, a German doctor successfully argued that any timehe was on call should be counted as his working hours, not just the time hespent treating patients. From August 2004, junior doctors will not be allowed to work more than 58hours a week and the EU ruling could mean this will include on-call hours. The Government had hoped to alleviate the problem by providing beds foron-call junior doctors and then count this as time off. The case will not immediately affect the UK because of the working timeopt-out, but rules on maximum hours for junior doctors will be phased in fromnext year.
