Directors of a company told lies to their workers about the financial state of the organization and abused an invoice factoring service by submitting large numbers of invoices for goods that were never manufactured.
They then took advantage of loopholes in Employment law to withhold wages and cheat employees out of money owed, leaving them poorer, stressed, suffering sleepless nights, and ultimately unemployed.
Harrow East MP, Bob Blackman was asked to take action in this case; but instead procrastinated and failed to have the aforementioned Directors struck off, failed to pass legislation to close the legal loopholes, ignored calls for an inquiry into this scandal, and instead claimed that this issue is "not in the public interest". He now refuses to answer further correspondence about this scandal.
Therefore, we say that this matter is in the public interest, that Bob Blackman has failed to represent the concerns of his constituents, and therefore should resign or be impeached from Public office. More details here.
Σύμφωνα με τους υπολογισμούς της Εξεταστικής Επιτροπής, το ελληνικό Δημόσιο έχει χάσει τουλάχιστον το 10% του συνόλου των προμηθειών και υπηρεσιών της Siemens στην Ελλάδα. Το ελληνικό κράτος υπέστη τεράστιες ζημίες και η αγανάκτηση των πολιτών είναι τεράστια. Η ομόφωνη απόφαση της Εξεταστικής Επιτροπής, χαρακτηρίζοντας την υπόθεση Siemens ως «διεθνές οργανωμένο έγκλημα» με σκοπό την εξαπάτηση του ελληνικού Δημοσίου το κάνει ξεκάθαρο. Όλοι οι Έλληνες πολίτες απαιτούμε την άμεση αποζημίωση του ελληνικού κράτους από την εταιρία Siemens.
Yüksel Baran, Leyla Güven, Abdullah Demirbaş, Firat Anli and Yurdusev Özsökmenler are some of the 80 democratically elected mayors and politicians who are now detained on charges of terrorism. Not only the elected politicians were arrested but also Muharrem Erbey, Chairman of the respected human rights organization IHD in Diyarbakir, and the organization's office was searched by the police. This is the fourth major crackdown on Kurdish politicians since DTP won a landslide victory in the local elections in March 2009.
The arrested politicians belong to those who worked hardest for local democracy in their communities. They have worked for women's rights, started women's centers and in spite of constant harassment from the Turkish state they have tried to build a functioning infrastructure in their municipalities.
As municipal politicians we are deeply outraged over the treatment of the elected politicians. Unfortunately, the Turkish state wants to crush the democracy that they are strenuously trying to build up in the Kurdish municipalities. It is time for local politicians in Sweden and politicians throughout Europe to declare that this is not acceptable. Turkey has signed the UN Declaration on Human Rights and as a signing country you are pledged to follow the declaration. Respect for national minorities and the right to freedom of expression is a prerequisite for membership in the European Union and Turkey have agreed to negotiate for membership on this basis.
If Turkey is to have any credibility left as a modern country towards democracy, they must have the imprisoned elected politicians and human rights activists immediately released.
