(ZAGREB, Croatia.) JUST IN: Lawmakers will lower the country’s retirement age back to 65 from 67 fol lowing a protest campaign led by leading trade unions, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said on Thursday #Ace NewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: Three top trade unions collected a petition of more than 700,000 citizens’ signatures last spring to force a referendum on the government’s decision to push back the retirement age: However, rather than call a people’s vote, the government decided to back down.

“By this we show that we listen to what our citizens tell us: However, some of our citizens want to carry on working beyond the age of 65 and we will make it possible in a revised (pension) law proposal,” Plenkovic told a cabinet session: “Thus we strike a balance between the demands of the campaign and the desire of those who can and want to work longer.”

In December, parliament had approved a government proposal to raise the retirement age to 67 from 2033, for both men and women, and to reduce pensions for people who retire early:

Croatia, like many European countries, has an ageing population: Its public pension scheme costs almost 40 billion kuna ($6 billion) a year, but that cannot be covered by workers’ contributions and the budget has to finance about 17 billion kuna from taxes annually to cover the shortfall.

(READING, U.K.) Thames Valley Police Report: PC Harper Investigation charges three teenagers Henry Long, 18, and two 17-year-old boys with murder and conspiracy to steal a quad bike after CPS authorisation: The suspects are due to appear at Magistrates’ Court on Thursday #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: Three teenagers have been charged with the murder of a police officer who was killed while investigating a burglary: The Crown Prosecution Service said it had authorised Thames Valley Police to charge Henry Long, 18, and two 17-year-old boys with murder and conspiracy to steal a quad bike…………After PC Andrew Harper, 28, died after he was dragged along a road by a vehicle in Sulhamstead, Berkshire, on 15 August: Thomas King, 21, has been charged with conspiracy to steal a quad bike.

TributesPA Media: PC Harper was killed on the A4 Bath Road:

Thames Valley Police said on Tuesday the latest arrests followed “new evidence coming to light” …………Jed Foster, 20, who is also charged with the murder of the PC and the theft of a quad bike, has previously appeared in court:

How the CPS decides whether or not to charge:

Any decision by the CPS does not imply any finding concerning guilt or criminal conduct; the CPS makes decisions only according to the test set out in the Code for Crown Prosecutors and it is applied in all decisions on whether or not to prosecute.

It is not the function of the CPS to decide whether a person is guilty of a criminal offence, but to make fair, independent and objective assessments about whether it is appropriate to present charges for the criminal court to consider.

The CPS assessment of any case is not in any sense a finding of, or implication of, any guilt or criminal conduct. It is not a finding of fact, which can only be made by a court, but rather an assessment of what it might be possible to prove to a court, in accordance with the Code for Crown Prosecutors.

This assessment is based on the evidence available arising out of the police investigation and not on the evidence that is likely to be gathered by the defence, and likely to be used to test the prosecution evidence. The CPS charging decision is therefore necessarily an assessment on the basis of the evidence that is available to the CPS at the time the decision is made.

CPS prosecutors must also keep every case under review, so that they take account of any change in circumstances that occurs as the case develops, including what becomes known of the defence case. If appropriate, the CPS may change the charges or stop a case.

Mr Foster, of Pingewood, Burghfield, did not enter a plea and was remanded in custody when he appeared via video link at Reading Crown Court: He was told a provisional trial date of 20 January had been fixed.

PC Harper, who got married four weeks before his death, was killed on the A4 Bath Road: His wife Lissie paid tribute to her husband as the “kindest, loveliest, most selfless person you will ever meet”………………… The roads policing officer, who became a regular officer in 2011 after joining as a special constable a year earlier, had attended a reported break-in with a fellow officer in Sulhamstead at about 23:30 BST on 15 August: A post-mortem examination concluded he died of multiple injuries.

  • The review of the evidence was carried out in accordance with the Full Code test
  • Jed Foster (DOB: 22/07/1999) from Reading appeared at Reading Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 20 August 2019 and has been charged with murder in relation to the death of PC Andrew Harper and also theft of a quad bike on Thursday 15 August 2019 in Berkshire.

(LONDON) #Brexit Deal or NO Deal Latest: Macron and Finnish PM decide its their turn to tell the U.K. we have 12-days and when we can leave the EU: As Stephen Barclay readies visit to lay out contractual terms of the deal to Michel Barnier but the question REMAINS (excuse the pun ) will anyone agree to any deal unless it ‘ Suits What They WANT ‘ #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.19: The EU has set Britain a test it “cannot meet” with its demands for a backstop replacement, the Brexit Secretary has said: Stephen Barclay said the UK should be given another year to find a new policy for the Irish border: “We are told the UK must provide legally operative text by the 31st October,” the cabinet minister said in a speech in Madrid: “Yet the alternative to the backstop is not necessary until the end of the Implementation Period in December 2020: “And this will be shaped by the future relationship – which is still to be determined: “In short why risk crystallising an undesirable result this November, when both sides can work together – until December 2020.

Stephen Barclay said the European commission had to abandon its position. Photograph: Europa Press News/Europa Press via Getty Images

“In summary, the EU risks continuing to insist on a test that the UK cannot meet and that the UK Parliament has rejected three times.”

It comes after Emmanuel Macron and the Finnish presidency of the EU issued an ultimatum in Paris on Wednesday, giving Boris Johnson until the end of September to table workable proposals – or “its over”.

Confidential documents that “reflect the ideas the UK has put forward” on Brexit have been shared with the EU, the UK government says: A statement said it will table “formal written solutions when we are ready” and not to an “artificial deadline”……………..It comes after Finland’s prime minister said Boris Johnson has 12 days to set out his Brexit plans to the EU…………………….The European Commission said documents had been received and technical talks will now take place………………The commission’s chief spokesperson Mina Andreeva also confirmed there will be talks at a political level at a meeting on Friday between the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier and Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay: The technical discussions will be on some aspects of rules relating to customs, manufactured goods, sanitary and phytosanitary – which relates to the health of plants, she said.

MADRID (Reuters) – Britain’s Brexit minister Stephen Barclay urged the European Union to show flexibility and creativity over Brexit on Thursday, saying the Irish backstop arrangement “has to go” and that Britain was prepared to leave without a deal if needed:

Barclay was speaking in Madrid just six weeks before the date on which Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed to take Britain out of the European Union by Oct. 31 “do or die”.

Britain wants a deal but both sides must work to reach one, Barclay said: “The prize of a deal should focus the minds of both sides on this need for creativity and flexibility,” he said………………..“So let’s work creatively to secure a deal, a deal the UK is committed to get in, a deal without a backstop … a deal which indeed will pass both the UK parliament and the European parliament.” ………………He listed issues with the Irish arrangement which made it impossible to accept, including the difficulty of guaranteeing it would be temporary…………………….“The backstop will not be agreed with the United Kingdom: The UK parliament has already rejected it three times,” he said: A deal to leave the EU would help manage issues including the treatment of international business groups like British Airways and Iberia airlines operator IAG and logistics around the British territory of Gibraltar, Barclay said.

He added that the conservative government would abide by an upcoming Supreme Court ruling on the parliament suspension ordered by Johnson: Britain’s top judicial body, the Supreme Court, is hearing a third and final day of legal arguments on Thursday over whether Johnson acted unlawfully when he suspended parliament in the run-up to Brexit.

(LUXEMBOURG) #Brexit Deal Or NO Deal But our PM Boris Johnson should not be humiliated or cow-tow to these EUROCRATS who want only a deal on their terms and its time for ‘ Bulldog Spirit ‘ and NOT mealy mouthed comments from Brussels #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.18: Mr Bettel strongly denied his press conference next to an empty podium with a union flag behind it – was an ambush or planned in any way: He said he suggested to his British counterpart that they start the press conference outside as planned because he had no room inside to accommodate all 140 accredited journalists.

When Mr Johnson decided to go to the British embassy to make his statement, Mr Bettel told the BBC’s Katya Adler he couldn’t follow him there: He said he felt the media would have made too much of the sight of Luxembourg removing the union flag and Mr Johnson’s podium, so he went ahead and made the statements about the Brexit process he had always planned to make.

In a BBC exclusive: Luxembourg PM Xavier Bettel says it was never his intention to humiliate Boris Johnson by holding a press conference without him.
