Visite d'Etat en Inde de la reine Beatrix des Pays-Bas 24/10/2007

Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands begins a four-day State visit to India on Wednesday during which the two sides are expected to explore ways to strengthen bilateral ties, particularly in trade and economy sectors. The Queen is accompanied by Prince of Orange William-Alexander and his spouse Princess Maxima, Foreign Minister Maxime Verhagen and a high-level business delegation comprising CEOs of eight top companies. During the visit, the first in 21 years, the Queen will meet President Pratibha Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh besides some other leaders. The discussions will focus on enhancement of ties, especially in the fields of trade and investment. The visit gives India an opportunity to brief the Dutch leadership about the Indo-US nuclear deal with expectation of support of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) member country. The talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh will focus on improving bilateral ties, particularly in trade. The two leaders will also attend a Round table of CEOs of eight top companies based in The Netherlands with their Indian counterparts. Among the CEOs likely to attend the Round table are Gerard Kleisterlee of consumer durables major Philips, Bert Heemskerk of Rabobank, Michel Tilmant of banking giant ING and Peter Hartman of Dutch airlines KLM. At the roundtable, the CEOs will have a "frank" discussion to explore new avenues to take the trade relations into the "new era". The bilateral trade between the two countries amounts to 2.28 billion dollars and the business houses are keen to double it in the next five years. Besides enhancing trade relations, the focus of the visit will be on three main sectors - ecology, water and micro-finance. The Queen will visit The Energy and Research Institute to learn about ecological developments in India, watch children receiving instructions on health and hygiene in a school run by NGO Deepalaya, and attend a seminar on synergy between water management and micro-finance. During her two-day stay in Bangalore, she will visit two villages, Srinivasnagar and Ujivan, and an NGO Myrada which runs a training centre that informs self-help groups on micro-finance schemes. The Queen's last state visit was in 1986 but she, along with the Dutch royal family, had spent her millennium-eve holidays in 1999 on a private visit to Rajasthan.

La Cour Suprême de Russie réhabilitera-t-elle le dernier Tsar Nicolas II ? 24/10/2007

Russia's Supreme Court on November 8 will consider a statement by Princess Maria Vladimirovna over the refusal to rehabilitate the members of the tsar's family."The statement over the rehabilitation of the royal family is to be considered on November 8,"a court official told Itar-Tass.Earlier, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office refused to give its consent to the rehabilitation of members of the Romanov tsarist family executed in Yekaterinburg in 1918."It was established during a relevant examination that there is no reliable evidence of any official decisions made by judicial and extra-judicial bodies vested with judicial functions regarding the use of repressions against the deceased. The existence of such decision is a mandatory condition for solving the question of rehabilitation," First Deputy Prosecutor General Alexander Buksman said.Lawyer German Lukyanov, who represents the interests of the royal house, said Maria Vladimirovna was hoping that the court would make an unbiased decision.The statement asking the Prosecutor General's Office to recognize the royal family members as victims of political reprisals was submitted in December 2005, on behalf of Princess Maria Vladimirovna who lives in Spain."In an 800-page petition, she asked to consider rehabilitating Nicholas II and his family /in accordance with the law on rehabilitation of victims of political repressions dated 1991/, shot to death in Yekaterinburg in July 1918.But on February 13, the Prosecutor General’s Office said there were "no legal reasons for rehabilitation.""It was a premeditated murder, albeit politically motivated, committed by persons who had no legal or administrative authority. No formal charges were brought against the emperor or members of his family. In this connection, the committed murder belongs to an ordinary criminal offense," the document said.Maria Romanova's lawyer protested the decision, insisting that the case be referred to court.Moscow’s Tverskoi court found no reasons for rehabilitation, and rejected the action in June.But the Moscow City court overturned the ruling on August 7, 2006 and ordered a reinvestigation.On November 14, 2006, after repeat consideration, Moscow's Tverskoi court said the Prosecutor General's decision was illegal, and obligated prosecutes to reconsider the appeal.
