first_imgThousands of people in Jakarta are at risk of becoming homeless after losing their livelihoods because of the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, several NGOs have reported.”Between April 20 and 24, we received 71 complaints from Jakartans saying they are struggling to pay their rent,” Rujak Center for Urban Studies executive director Elisa Sutanudjaja said in a teleconference on Wednesday.The complaints, she said, ranged from sellers to college students, housewives, construction workers, taxi drivers, app-based ride-hailing drivers and app-based massage therapists.

I’ve talked to my landlord but I don’t know how long he can give me leniency,” Budi said in the teleconference.Budi, who used to worker as a hawker in Ancol, said he lost his livelihood after the Jakarta administration temporarily closed tourist destinations in the city to curb the spread of the virus.”I’ve tried to earn money in other ways but I’ve only made enough to feed my wife and three children; it isn’t enough to pay our Rp 1 million rent each month,” he said.Elisa said the government should provide a safety net to ensure residents who rented homes would not become homeless.”The government should provide a mechanism to give renters leniency or provide rental relief,” she said.The government could also cooperate with NGOs to list residents who have become homeless.”The government could provide temporary housing for residents who have been evicted from their rental homes by utilizing sport halls, schools, mosques or vocational training centers,” she said.Read also: Indonesia could enter recession as virus response remains fractured, unclear: EconomistsLBH Jakarta director Arif Maulana said the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic had also put people who borrowed money from online lenders at risk of intimidation and data breaches.”In the last two months we have recorded 53 cases related to online lenders. Many residents are struggling to pay their debts because of the pandemic. However, creditors refuse to provide leniency despite the current situation,” Arif said on Wednesday.He said many borrowers experienced online or even physicals threats from creditors after falling behind on their dues.”Some creditors even leak the borrowers’ data online.”According to Arief, layoffs were the second most common legal issue the institute handled during the pandemic.”We have received 35 complaints regarding layoffs in the last two months. Apparently many companies have refused to fulfill their obligations when laying off employees. “Some residents said they were pressured to resign from their jobs so that the company did not have to pay severance pay. Some companies did not pay the employees’ health insurance for months before they were laid off, some purposefully laid off by their employees before Ramadan so they do not have to pay for the Idul Fitri holiday bonuses,” he said.Topics : Thousands of other Jakarta residents are also at risk of losing their homes.”Thirty five percent of Jakarta residents live in rented homes,” she said.A recent survey conducted by the Amrta Institute, Lokataru Foundation, Indonesian Legal Aid Foundation (YLBHI), Jakarta Legal Aid Institute (LBH Jakarta) and Rujak Center for Urban Studies found that around 27 percent of Jakartans were now struggling to pay their rent.Budiarso, a resident from Pademangan Barat, North Jakarta is one of these people.last_img read more

I don’t think you can replace it.”The home will be auctioned on site at 1.30pm Saturday August 12, by McGrath New Farm.

first_img 12 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Share NewsRegional Secretary general tells Diaspora trade not the only measure of success for CARICOM by: – April 26, 2012center_img Share Tweet Secretary-general of CARICOM, Irwin LaRocqueWASHINGTON, USA — Secretary-general of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Irwin LaRocque, told leaders of the Washington, DC-based Caribbean Diaspora that merchandise trade was not the only measure to judge the success of the integration movement. The secretary-general was on the first day of his visit to the US capital when he met with a cross section of the Diaspora leadership at the offices of the Inter-American Development Bank on Tuesday. He brought the gathering up to date on the latest developments in the Community with emphasis on the reform process. The Diaspora offered suggestions on improving links with their homeland including greater use of the social networks and programmes specifically aimed at attracting their skills to assist the region’s development. Earlier in the day the secretary-general had met with the CARICOM Caucus of Ambassadors in Washington, during which issues related to relations between the United States and the region were discussed. These included the Community’s response to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA), two pieces of US legislation that would have adverse effects on the Community. Some provisions of the FATCA have implications for the banks and financial institutions in the region as the comprehensive nature of the legislation requires extensive reporting requirements on any institution doing business with persons and entities from the US. Given the demands of the FACTA, there is concern that compliance would contravene local laws to which the banking and financial institutions are obligated. With respect to the FSMA, the new legislation would have significant implications on how Caribbean businesses interact with the US and has the potential to reduce CARICOM’s exports to the US. This is due to the need for food exporters to satisfy more stringent requirements to gain entry into the market. LaRocque and the ambassadors also looked at responding to the developments surrounding the subsidies to US Virgin Islands rum producers, which have put CARICOM rum producers at a disadvantage. The ambassadors were also brought up to date on the support given to the Community by the IDB to develop the region’s Aid for Trade Strategy as well as in the area of Maritime Transport and Information and Communication Technology for Development (ICT4D). The secretary-general also met with the president of the IDB Luis Alberto Moreno after paying a courtesy call on Richard Bernal, executive director for The Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago at the Bank. The special representative of the heads of government on Haiti, PJ Patterson, and Haiti’s special envoy to CARICOM, John Alexis, also attended this meeting at which the reconstruction of Haiti was a major topic.Caribbean News Nowlast_img read more

first_img Loading… Dries Mertens believes Napoli virtually went to bed and forgot about the Champions League Round of 16 tie to Barcelona. ‘After conceding, we lost ideas about what we were supposed to do.’ The Belgian hit the woodwork within two minutes at Camp Nou, but despite all their pressure and chances, the Partenopei emerged with a 3-1 defeat, going out 4-2 on aggregate. “We did well in the first 10 minutes, then just gifted them the game,” Mertens told Sky Sport Italia. “Barcelona have so much quality and created scoring opportunities out of nothing. We showed after the break that we were in great shape physically and could be dangerous, but yet again we didn’t score enough of our chances.” The Clement Lenglet header on a corner should’ve been disallowed for a push, but after that, Napoli let their heads drop and went 3-0 down.Advertisement “After conceding the goal, we forgot what we were supposed to do. If we build on this and learn to stay focused, we can do really well next season.

first_imgFemi SolajaThe iconic Wembley Stadium in London will hug the limelight tonight for a special reason when ’embattled’ Real Madrid visits the ground for one of the Match-day four matches of the UEFA Champions league tie against host, Tottenham Hotspurs for the leadership of Group H.Destiny has put both teams in similar position both in their respective domestic leagues and in the on-going Champions League and tonight may just the an opportunity to settle the score for both teams to follow their paths in the ongoing season.Reason? Both clubs seem to be mirroring each other’s results which is not something common in modern day football.Aside the fact that both teams have same number of points in the group, the goals scored, against and goal different are same with the reverse fixture of the score draw in Santiago Bernabue as the best option to settle their placement before the end of the group stage of the competition next month. In their respective domestic league, Real Madrid, who are the defending champion of La Liga are presently third and a similar position occupied by Spurs in the English Premiership.Both teams have played 10 matches respectively, won six each , drew two, and lost two. As if that is not enough, both sides are eight points a drift of their respective league leaders in FC Barcelona and Manchester City!Both teams have scored 19 goals respectively in the league, with seven each in the Champions League just as they have also conceded two goals each in Europe. Interestingly, both teams lost in their respective leagues last weekend by a goal margin.Although the home jersey of both teams is white, tonight will be different because the Champions League defending champion, Madrid, will come out in an away jersey which is purple.Ahead of tonight’s match, reports have it that Tottenham Hotspur point man, Harry Kane, trained with the first-team squad and will be assessed ready for the Wembley duel.Kane, who has scored 13 goals in 12 appearances in all competitions for Spurs this season, missed defeats by West Ham United and Manchester United after suffering a minor hamstring strain.“We’re very confident (he will play) – he’s on the list. We have one more day to assess him but maybe it’s possible he can play tomorrow,” manager Mauricio Pochettino told a news conference on Monday.“I don’t want to say 100 per cent because we have one more day. Today and yesterday was good at training. Now it’s with medical staff to take the right decision.“He was training with group and was good – at same level as team. We’ll take the best decision for him, first of all, and then for the team.”Winger Erik Lamela, who has not played for a year due to hip problems, also took part in the training drills. Midfielder Victor Wanyama was Spurs’ only absentee but he will resume training later this week.Spurs will be also boosted by the return of Dele Alli, who was suspended for the opening three matches of their European campaign.“He has a good opportunity tomorrow (Wednesday) to play if I decide to put him in the starting XI, and make his Champions League debut (this season),” Pochettino hinted yesterday.“I’m happy because we have one player more to help the team what we want to achieve, to reach the next stage of the Champions League,” the Spurs’ boss concluded ahead of tonight clash at the Wembley.FIXTURES 8:45pm Liverpool Vs Maribor Sevilla Vs Spartak Napoli Vs Man City Shakhtar Vs Feyenoord Besiktas Vs Monaco Porto Vs Leipzig Dortmund Vs APOEL Spurs Vs Real MadridShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
