Thai Cabinet approves Parliament session to debate protests

BANGKOK – Thailand’s Cabinet on Tuesday approved a request to recall Parliament for a special session to deal with the political pressures from ongoing anti-government protests.

The Cabinet at its weekly meeting approved the request, which calls for a non-voting session on Oct. 26-27.

The request for the session came from House Speaker Chuan Leekpai, who said Monday that both government and opposition parties supported it. Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha had already said earlier that he supports the move.

There is a deadlock between the government and the student-led protesters, who want Prayuth to step down, the constitution to be amended to make it more democratic, and reforms to the monarchy to have it conform to democratic norms.

The protesters charge that Prayuth, an army commander who led a 2014 coup, was returned to power unfairly in last year’s general election because laws had been changed to favour a pro-military

Tullow Jumps After Uganda Approves $575 Million Stake Sale

(Bloomberg) —

Tullow Oil Plc received approval from the Ugandan government for the sale of a $575 million stake in an oil project to Total SE, sending the shares as much as 40% higher.

The beleaguered explorer has been waiting since 2017 to close its divestment in the Lake Albert Development Project, an effort repeatedly stymied by tax disagreements. As it sought relief from lenders this year to avoid blowing through debt covenants, securing proceeds from the sale became key to restoring stability.

U.S. approves sale of missile defense system to Romania

Oct. 16 (UPI) — The United States cleared Romania to purchase coastal defense missiles in a $300 million deal, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced Friday.

The State Department approved the sale of two Naval Strike Missile Coastal Defense Systems and related equipment.

The system includes missiles suited for land attack missions because they can climb and descend with the terrain as well as having sea-skimming capabilities.

It was successfully tested in a land-based mobile launcher configuration in 2018 as part of a multinational military exercise, its manufacturer, Raytheon, said.

Raytheon builds the system in conjunction with Norwegian defense company Kongsberg Defence Aerospace.

In 2019, the U.S. Marine Corps became a customer, integrating a land-based Naval Strike Missile into its force structure. And in 2018, the Navy selected the Naval Strike Missile for its over-the-horizon defense of littoral combat ships and future frigates.

The system is currently in use by

City committee approves sale of Cortez Hill shelter for future affordable housing

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – A San Diego City Council committee signed off Thursday on the proposed sale of a vacant city-owned property on Cortez Hill to a nonprofit agency for less than $12,000 to create more than 100 units of affordable housing.

The .4-acre property at 1449 Ninth Ave. was most recently the site of the now-vacant Cortez Hill Family Center, which housed homeless families.

The City Council’s Land Use and Housing Committee unanimously approved the proposal to sell the property for $11,593 to Community Housing Works, which develops, rehabilitates, preserves and operates affordable apartment communities in San Diego and throughout the state.

The sale will now move to the full City Council for consideration.
