Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsUnited Nations: A North Korean shipping company that famously tried to hide fighter jets under a cargo of sugar later sought to evade UN sanctions by renaming most of its vessels a new report says The effort by Pyongyang-headquartered Ocean Maritime Management Company Ltd is detailed in the report by a panel of experts that monitors sanctions on North Korea The report obtained by The Associated Press makes clear the challenge of keeping banned arms and luxury goods from a nuclear-armed country with a history of using front companies to duck detection The UN Security Council holds consultations Thursday on the report which also says North Korea’s government persists with its nuclear and missile programs in defiance of council resolutions The council last year imposed sanctions on OMM after Panama in 2013 seized a ship it operated that carried undeclared military equipment from Cuba Panamanian authorities found two Cuban fighter jets missiles and live munitions beneath the Chong Chon Gang’s cargo of sugar The council’s sanctions committee said that violated a UN arms embargo imposed in response to North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs At the time US Ambassador Samantha Power said that imposing a global asset freeze on OMM meant that the company would no longer be able to operate internationally Leader of North Korea Kim Jong un Reuters But the new report says that in the months after the sanctions were imposed 13 of the 14 ships controlled by OMM changed their owners and managers "effectively erasing" the company from a database kept by the International Maritime Organization Twelve of the ships "reportedly stayed visited or were sighted near ports in foreign countries" and none were frozen by member states as the panel of experts recommends The new report explores the shipping company’s global reach using people and entities operating in at least 10 countries: Brazil China Egypt Greece Japan Malaysia Peru Russia Singapore and Thailand The report recommends updating the sanctions list with 34 OMM entities and says all 14 vessels should be subject to sanctions No interdictions of the kind that Panama made in 2013 were reported in the period between 8 February of last year and 5 February of this year But the new report warns that the panel of experts sees no evidence that North Korea "intends to cease prohibited activities" The report also says diplomats officials and trade representatives of North Korea continue to "play key roles in facilitating the trade of prohibited items including arms and related materiel and ballistic missile-related items" The panel of experts warns that some UN member states still are not implementing the council resolutions that are meant to keep North Korea from further violations North Korea also faces an embargo on luxury goods but the report found that it managed to bring in luxury goods from multiple countries including with the help of its diplomatic missions Some items were for the country’s Masik Pass luxury ski report which opened in 2013 China told the panel of experts that the ski lift equipment it provided was acceptable because "skiing is a popular sport for people" and that ski items are not specifically prohibited In another case a yacht seen alongside leader Kim Jong Un in 2013 was sourced by the panel of experts to a British manufacturer Princess Yachts International which the panel said did not reply to a request for more information The panel also said it has opened its first investigation into a case involving North Korean drones after the wreckage of three drones was found in South Korea in late 2013 and 2014 The report says the drones had been used for reconnaissance over South Korean military facilities and that the drones contained components "sourced from at least six foreign countries" North Korea protests that the UN sanctions are harmful to its citizens but the report says it has found no incidents where they "directly resulted in shortages of . humanitarian aid" It does recommend that the sanctions committee propose exemptions for purely food medical or other humanitarian needs Associated Press Name: Mairaj Ahmad Khan Age:40 Discipline (sport): Shooting Category: Skeet Men Qualification:Mairaj qualified for the Olympics by finishing in sixth place at the ISSF Shotgun World Cup held in Lonato Italy Strengths:The aceshooter has over 15 years of experience to rely on and be a competitor to look out for in this shotgun category Past Olympic performance:Debut Past record (best performances):- Mairaj won the silver medal in the 2016 World Cup held at Rio de Janeiro – He clinched the gold medal at the Team Skeet event in the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games – He struck gold in 2011 Asian Shotgun Championship team event as well – Mairaj has also won the national championship three times By contributing to 4 of the 26 medals that India has won in the Summer Games so far shooting has always been an important Olympic sport for the country Many shooters like Abhinav Bindra Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and Vijay Kumar have become household names But amidst these varying disciplines in the sport skeet shooting hasn’t seen much luck so far Many consider it the weakest discipline for Indian shooting That’s where Mairaj Ahmad Khan comes into the picture File photo of Mairaj Ahmed Khan Photo: Twitter Mairaj finally paved for India in skeet shooting by clinching a spot at the Rio Olympics He is currently ranked ninthin the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) world rankings With 15 years of experience to bank on the 40-year- old athlete from Uttar Pradesh still refuses to call himself a ‘veteran’ This hesitation stems due to his humbling defeat during his first international tournament He didn’t just lose at the Shotgun World Championship 15 years ago during his debut he ended up coming last in the tournament But Mairaj didn’t let that come in his way during the Olympic qualifiers “I remember flopping 15 years ago very clearly So I kept telling myself that I was a better shooter now Stronger faster experienced” Mairaj told The Indian Express Hence it was almost poetic when Mairaj ended up qualifying in Italy at the Trap Concaverde stadium the same place that he had witnessed his first defeat His qualification wasn’t coincidence andnow puts him as a strong contender formaking Olympic history for India this year; he also won the silver medal in the 2016 World Cup held at Rio de Janeiro recently He is in peak condition and had a really consistent season this year with shot scores of 121 and 120earlier in the World Cups “(Scoring) 120’s like a century in cricket” said the shooter while explaining the relevance of breaking this score barrier Mairaj also has another Italian connection besides the Concaverde victory He is now being trained by Italian shooter and Olympic champion Ennio Falco The world-class coach has helped boost Mairaj’s confidence and improved his technical touch “Falco brought in belief sharpened techniques and told us how to prepare for a competition” Mairaj told The Indian Express With all his achievements and the promise of this Olympics it is clear that Mairaj has become the face of skeet shooting in India "I am also immensely happy and proud of Mairaj as all the hardships he has had to undergo all these years and the dedication and hard work that he has put in into his sport despite is finally bearing fruit" President of the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) Raninder Singh a shotgun shooter himself added while speaking to NDTV Mairaj is also confident that his hard work will end up seeing results He wants to go beyond his numerous national accolades and bring glory to India “I’ve always been Mairaj Ahmed Khan the national champion Now I’ll be Mairaj Ahmed Khan the Olympian” he said With inputs from agencies Published: July 23 2014 4:13

crowd-financing platforms could be a major boost for India’s entrepreneurial ecosystem A major part of the world is consistently encouraging entrepreneurship Start-ups are drawing the best people into the ecosystem building solutions executing them tirelessly and making a significant impact on society Over the years start-ups have redefined the economics of business particularly so in India With many incubators accelerators investors and venture capitalists entering the start-up community the support system for the same is rapidly gaining strength in terms of knowledge experience infrastructure and capital Despite that a start-up’s journey to success is filled with challenges and uncertainties One of the major reasons why start-ups fail is lack of adequate capital In a place like India where raising investment requires immense effort and a long turnaround time there is a need for alternate funding sources This will make the investment market more competitive flexible and accessible to upcoming entrepreneurial talent The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) recently released a paper that discusses the legal and regulatory challenges involved in implementing crowd-funding in the country Online crowd-financing forums are already active in many jurisdictions and considering our present situation have the potential to massively boost the entrepreneurial ecosystem They will help start-ups reach out to potential investors in a much easier way Additionally a more competitive investment market will enable entrepreneurs to negotiate better deals and have a greater say in deciding the future of the company I’ve come across a few cases where start-ups over-dilute equity or are restrained from naturally building their company due to the limited investment opportunities available to them Sebi’s discussion paper considers the risks benefits and responsibilities involved in opening our economy to crowdfunding from the perspectives of start-ups investors and entities that set up the crowdfunding platforms However the proposed rules indicate high entry barriers for those who can raise funds and can invest For instance the regulations only allow those companies no more than 48 months old to raise funds Many start-ups go through a long journey to realise their true value in the market They undergo several pivot strategies and repeatedly reinvent themselves to eventually build a strong and longlasting foundation So even after a few years of operation they continue to operate as start-ups and seek to raise early stage investment According to Sebi’s proposal the crowd-funding system will not be accessible to such start-ups after a duration of 48 months Hence these start-ups will have to shift to existing methods of fundraising and the purpose of having alternate funding sources will not be served This may dilute the significance of introducing crowd-funding as many companies in the past have gone through this reinvention cycle to finally emerge as pioneers in their respective industries Further Sebi regulations don’t allow companies to raise capital of more than Rs 10 crore in a period of 12 months This may restrict many start-ups which are in fact in need of higher capital to execute their vision from using crowdfunding platforms A company’s investment requirements depend on what it aims to do For example a software start-up that builds a web/ mobile platform may require less early stage investment than a start-up building the next generation of robotic arms Keeping a safe limit of Rs 10 crore will not allow many high-potential concepts to become reality Moreover a start-up’s growth trajectory is difficult to predict especially considering the scale that the use of technology allows a company to achieve in little time these days A Rs 10 crore limit may be sufficient for a start-up in its first two years of execution but if the company manages to show great progress in that time it might need to raise higher amounts in future Such start-ups will have to turn back to traditional methods of fundraising The main reason for restricting crowd-funding platforms is to mitigate the risk for investors in a newly introduced system This is important but can always be taken into account while deciding which parties can invest The regulations only allow those retail investors to invest who have knowledge experience or access to investment advice and have resources to cope with potential loss on their investment Coupled with strict restrictions on start-ups that can raise funds this will considerably limit the value of this system Though these restrictions may lead to a safe beginning for crowd-funding in India they will not have as much of an impact on the entrepreneurial ecosystem as they could Sebi must relax the regulations at each end over time once users are more comfortable using these platforms and understand the risks benefits and responsibilities better If executed well an open crowd-funding environment will serve as a gamechanging concept in fundraising It will enhance the growth of entrepreneurship in India enabling more start-ups to execute and scale their vision
