Housebuilder Bellway reported full year results in line with expectations with uncertainty around the government’s spending review hitting sales.“Sales in the early part of what is traditionally an active autumn selling period have picked up, albeit only slightly, following the usual summer lull,” chairman Howard Dawe said.“It seems that potential homebuyers are awaiting the outcome of the Comprehensive Spending Review,” he added.A stagnant housing market will add to the gloom of the coalition government’s austerity measures, with spending cuts to be announced on Wednesday.Bellway, the UK’s fifth largest housebuilder by market value, reported a pretax profit of £44.4m in the 12 months to end July compared with £29.8m in 2009.Market expectations had ranged between £41.5 and £49m.Fears of a slowdown have been cemented in the past month as weak house price data has reinforced anecdotal stories of a stagnant housing market.House prices suffered their sharpest fall in 16 months in September according to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, as home owners rushed to sell before painful public spending cuts kick in next year.This came a week after mortgage lender Halifax reported the sharpest drop in house prices on record in September.

She will continue in her role as bishop of New Westminster while taking on responsibility for the internal province. She is the first woman to be elected an archbishop in the Anglican Church of Canada and only the second within the Anglican Communion. Skelton Earlier this year Bishop Kay Goldworthy was elected as Archbishop of Perth in the Anglican Church of Australia. Each are responsible for internal provinces, and so are not primates.There has been a female primate in the Anglican Communion: Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori became the first – and so far only – female primate when she was elected as presiding bishop of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church in 2006, a role she held until her her term expired in 2015.Read the entire article here.Editor’s note: Skelton was rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Seattle, and canon for congregational development and leadership in the Diocese of Olympia when she was elected bishop of the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster by a special synod in late 2013.

News AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia June 8, 2021 Find out more RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan June 4, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts April 9, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh Organisation Help by sharing this information to go further 13.05.2015 – Reporters Without Borders urges Azerbaijan to release all imprisoned journalists and bloggers immediately. 30 days before the beginning of the European Games RSF also calls on the European Olympic Committees to speak out against the repressions against media representatives in the host country of the sporting event.“It’s an unbearable nation that President Ilham Aliyev should be allowed to present himself as the host of a major sporting event while at the same time his regime incarcerates journalists for critical investigations and comments,” said RSF Germany’s executive director Christian Mihr. “The European Olympic Committees should not make themselves Aliyev’s accomplices, but should expressly condemn the repression of press freedom in the run-up to and during the Games. For decisions about the hosting of future sporting events of this importance, the human rights situation in the applicant countries has to be given much more weight.”Azerbaijan is presently holding at least eight journalists and bloggers in prison because of their work. Arrests, crackdowns and economic pressure have seriously disrupted the work of many independent or opposition media. Non-governmental organizations in support of media freedom have also been among the victims of the latest surge of repression that began last summer. Azerbaijani human rights defendants currently put the total number of prisoners of conscience in their country at 80.PRETRAIL DETENTION AND SENTENCES FOR WELL-KNOWN CRITICAL JOURNALISTS.Last week a court extended until September 19 the pre-trial detention of Rauf Mirkadirov who has already been detained for over a year. A foreign correspondent of the weekly paper Zerkalo – and a well-known critic of the governments of Azerbaijan as well as Turkey and Russia –, Mirkadirov was deported from Turkey in April 2004 and arrested at the airport on arrival in Azerbaijan. He is charged with treason and espionage for Armenia. The main “evidence” brought forward against him is a video that shows the journalist signing papers during his attendance of an international seminar in the capital of Georgia, Tbilisi.Azerbaijan’s most prominent investigative journalist Khadija Ismayilova has by now been in detention for over five months. She was originally accused of having driven a freelance journalist into an attempted suicide, even though the said journalist has since admitted being pressured by security authorities into make these allegations. In February, authorities added embezzlement, tax fraud and other criminal offences to the charges against Ismayilova.Ismayilova is best known for her investigations into the assets and businesses of highest government circles including the family of the president himself. She has been the target of harassment by state authorities and of anonymous threats for years, and notably of repeated smear campaigns including the posting of videos on the internet that allegedly showed her while having sex.In January, journalist Seymur Hazi was sentenced to five years in prison for aggravated hooliganism. He is a reporter for the opposition daily Azadlig and one of the presenters of “Azerbaycan Saati,” a TV programme critical of the government that is broadcast from abroad. His sentencing relates to an incident last August when he defended himself against a sudden physical assault by complete stranger.CRITICAL MEDIA IN DIRE STRAITS.Many of the few critical media outlets left in Azerbaijan have become victims of the surge of repression since last summer. The office of Radio Azadliq, the Azerbaijani service of the US broadcaster Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, has remained closed since a police raid in late December. Independent newspaper Zerkalo had to cease its print issue because it could no longer cover its running expenses after due to the interference of state authorities into the classified ads market and into the distribution network. The main opposition newspaper Azadliq is at the brink of ruin. The paper had to temporary cease its print issue several times because the public distribution company withheld payments. Heavy fines and increasing limitations of the channels of distribution by the state have also added to the pressure on Azadliq. TV and radio broadcasters are already controlled by the state. PROSECUTION OF MEDIA NGOS, TIGHTENING OF MEDIA LAWS.The targets of state repression also include non-governmental organizations supporting media freedom. On August 5, the bank accounts of the Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety (IRFS), the Azerbaijan section of US organization IREX and the Media Rights Institute (MRI) were frozen, as were the personal bank accounts of the directors of IRFS and MRI . IRFS director Emin Huseynov has held out in the Swiss Embassy in Baku since August 2014. After the offices of the organization were searched and he was prevented from leaving the country, Huseynov fears his imminent arrest should he leave the embassy.Past week the European Court of Human Rights awarded 15.000 euros of compensation to Huseynov for being arbitrarily arrested by Azerbaijani authorities in 2008 and abused in police custody. The judges also found that there had been no credible investigation of his complaint].At the beginning of February, two further restrictions of the media law took effect. A media outlet can now be shut down if it is found to receive financial support from abroad – which affects especially independent media that are often reliant on international support because of governmental control of ad markets. Additionally, media outlets can now also be shut down if they are convicted of defamation twice within a year. News Azerbaijan is ranked 160th out of 180 countries in the 2015 RSF’s World Press Freedom Index.
