Petition to District Court for Prague 2 Francouzská 808/19 120 00 Praha 2, Regional Court in Ostrava Havlíčkovo nábř. 34 728 81 Ostrava 1, European Commission, European Ombudsman, UKLA Department, Financial Conduct Authority, 25 The North Colonnade, London E14 5HS, Supreme Court in Olomouc
Regulators, urged to investigate the corrupt business practices of New World Resources.
Thirteen Thousand people could face imminent loss of their jobs and the shareholders to have their assets stolen and made worthless. Unless the Regulators, ESMA European Securities and Markets Authority, and the European Commission and the Ombudsman's. Immediately step in to investigate the business practices and scrutinize all past and present company director's dealings, for being allegedly incompetent and failing to perform their duties in a responsible way for New World Resources/ OKD/ Karbonia S.A. AHG group is a majority 60% shareholder and owns 65% of the debt notes liabilities. They wanted to blackmail the Czech Government into giving money to keep the company going from a claimed false bankruptcy. AHG group allegedly wants to use the rules in their debt notes to take control over New World Resources . Management was unwilling to sell a large stockpile of their own produced coal which was worth more than a future given Czech government loan that remains mostly unused. Even on the company website of OKD, there it is written that AHG Group will keep “all stakeholders informed” including shareholders. But this is not the case at all for us shareholders and employees. All the regulators must investigate the fact that New World Resources owner of OKD and Karbonia S.A. Has always published the future contract prices for coking and there thermal coal products within the first few weeks of the year when they set the price for their customers. Or set new contacts over each quarter of the year as it's common practice in the coal industry. All coking and thermal coal pricing have been omitted and we the shareholders and employees are being deceived and mislead with false information.On the 3rd of May 2016, Management alleged incompetent directors decided in an internal meeting to put the company in a “Bankruptcy Petition” and this forced on our shares the, Suspension of all traded shares.The Czech Government later in May 2016 appointed an Administrator Insolvency trustee:ING Lee Louda Vodickova 41, 110 00 Prague 1 Guarantor of New World resources.The regulators must ensure the recent dealing of the AHG owner of M&G Debt opportunities Fund II over trying to force a liquidation to be stopped. And stop the 11 Oct 2016, AHG security agent Citibank S.A from selling company assets in Poland, Karbonia S.A. As we question the validity of this illegal and unauthorized transaction. Also 17 Oct 2016 Explanatory Liquidation Circular contains many dishonest and deceiving statements sent to shareholders for this uncalled for 3rd November 2016 General meeting. (coking coal up 100% not true it's up over 300% since Nov 2015) We also humbly request that the current OKD Management, Insolvency Administrator Lee Louda and the Creditors Committee, Supervisory board, through the Czech Court with urgency re-evaluate and make a new reorganisation plan that reflects the present day coking and thermal coal prices. And we ask OKD that they really must upgrade and use present day future long-term forecasts for coal prices to reflect the recent massive price increases. Therefore it would be a prudent move for OKD to re-examined its own coal reserves so they can be upgraded and then to re-issue a new plan showing a much longer life for it's own coal mines. We are reluctant and sorry to tell you that we the minority shareholders feel that the Creditor Committee has only a closing down plan for OKD like Paskov. And we beg and ask you, Please do not close down our highly profitable coal mines. And please honour the Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament. The Regulators, ESMA European Securities and Markets Authority, and the European Commission and the Ombudsman's must all ensure what the proprietor has claimed and the validity of their unwarranted “Bankruptcy petition”, and investigate all their business practices and scrutinize all director’s dealings especially former shadow director Zdenek Bakala. We the shareholders do have rights too. The company of New World resources is now making massive profits as of the early October 2016 coking coal contracts have settled at multi-year highs not seen since late 2011 of $200US/180Euro dollars a tonne. And thermal coal prices have now over doubled in price since the start of 2016 . ( See links below) The Regulators, ESMA European Securities and Markets Authority, and the European Commission, and the Ombudsman's must intervene urgently and we the shareholders ask for the immediate suspension of shares to be released and this unwarranted bankruptcy petition to be removed and this illegal liquidation to be stopped as it has never been authorised by the Administrator or passed by the Ostrava regional court who is presiding over all legal matters relating to New World Resources. We the minority shareholders who have human rights make a declaration. The Czech Politicians Government and Courts, Czech Authorities CNB, Administrator Lee Louda, OKD Creditor committee and Supervisory board are allegedly using and making false and fabricated purported documents to use thievery to steal and cheat us out of our minority shareholding of New World Resources PLC that owns 100% of OKD. We ask you to please stop the thievery and the deceptive transfer of OKD's active parts to the new OKD Nástupnická company, whose shares would then be redeemed by the state-owned PRISKO as, registered by the Municipal Court in Prague, insert: B 1729. Its identification number is 46355901, which would then take over for a miniscule 80 million crowns( 3.13+ Million Euro, 8.12.2017). How can this be possible when in the past New World Resources which owns OKD was valued at it's peak on the London Stock Exchange in 2008 post IPO at 19.55 pounds so NWR including OKD was valued at up to 5,157,275,513 UK pounds, and or 2.88 Billion in 2010, and again at 3 Billion in 2011. And OKD coal prices especially coking coal have reached record high's in early 2017 and or at very high prices even now( Dec 2017). Please we the humbled minority shareholders beg and ask the Czech Courts and the European Commission and European Ombudsman to take heed to this petition and take immediate actions under Czech and European Laws. . And stop the thievery of OKD and we also ask for "OKD" to be returned back to New World Resources Plc. We the people who have signed this petition lastly proclaim that OKD is now solvent and has been making massive profits since the third quarter of September 2016. So therefore OKD can not be bankrupt or insolvent. And we ask for the insolvency of OKD to be annulled. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OKD in the Czech Republic and the return to communism where everything is once again a state asset- The European laws being broken in regards to OKD "Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament". http://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/LSU/?uri=CELEX%3A32014R0596 https://ec.europa.eu/info/business-economy-euro/banking-and-finance/financial-markets/securities-markets/investment-services-and-regulated-markets-markets-financial-instruments-directive-mifid_en NWR assigned liquidators can be contacted or send complaint here.

OKD does have a very long future just look at Frenštát. I bet that Frenstat coking coal mine will be production one day in the future. And will produce, mine and sell coal until 2050-70AD. OKD is now a highly profitable company, and many nameless sycophants have ideas to close down OKD coal mines.

Petition to Malaysian Parliamentarians
Enforce Better Legal Protection for Domestic Workers in Malaysia
Every year, horrific stories of domestic worker abuse surface in the Malaysian media with some domestic workers being starved, beaten and raped. Some of these cases even result in deaths. How many more cases like Nirmala Bonat's, Adelina Lisao's and Mey Sichan's do we have to witness before we act? These abuses are an addition to the extreme susceptibility of these women to exploitation by recruitment agencies, from not being given the opportunity to consent to having their passport confiscated to discrepancies in work employment contracts, further infringing on their already limited rights. Many of these abuses and exploitation are due to the extreme gaps in our laws which do not recognise these women as workers where it matters. As such, the Domestic Workers Coalition* has collectively worked on a Domestic Workers draft Bill since 2016 and will push for the Malaysian parliament to pass it into law to ensure better legal protection for these vulnerable women. The DW Draft Bill has been strongly influenced by the input of domestic workers from meetings, gatherings and consultations at different levels .This entire process was a project supported by the ILO office in Geneva with a thorough review by the ILO Experts in Geneva. To strengthen our efforts, we want our policy makers to hear your voice on this matter! Sign this petition to show the Malaysian government that we will not stand by quietly while these women continue to suffer. This petition will be submitted to the parliament along with the bill. * the Domestic Workers Coalition consists of several NGOs, including the WAO - Women’s Aid Organization , CARAM ASIA , Liber 8, Migrant Ministry, Persatuann Kebajikan Good Shepherd, AOHD ( Archdiocesan Officer for Human Development), Change Your World , Tenaganita and Malaysian Trade Union

#Justice for 668Babies, 17,000Women, and all innocents allegedly arrested by TurkishRegime
In recent years, Turkey has experienced a sharp declining trend in almost all democratic indicators, including civil, political, economic and social rights, freedom of expression and media. Apart from these, the violation of human rights against women and children have been in a disturbingly rising pattern. However, the situation deteriorated substantially in the aftermath of the attempted, doubtful coup of July, 2016. After the failed coup, Turkish regime boosted the witch-hunt (which the government started after uncovering of their huge bribery) under an umbrella of the state of emergency calling the coup attempt "a gift from God". By the end of August 2017, there are 668 children under age 6 in jails with their mothers who are denied their right to nutritious food and access to basic healthcare. Age Number of children0-12 months 1491-3 years 3814-6 years 127 The mothers of these children are just 668 of 17,000 women who have imprisoned allegedly, who face torture, abuse, and ill-treatment in Turkey prisons, not having a fair trial. Most alarming, since July 15, 2016 147,932 got sacked 130,214 detained 62,211 arrested 3,003 schools, dormitories, and universities shut down 5,946 academics lost jobs 4,463 judges, prosecutors dismissed 187 media outlets shut down 308 journalists arrested as of December 5, 2017, with increase day after day So, I think it is an important time for everyone to collaborate, from all parts of the world, regardless of ethnicity, nationality, and creed, hand in hand, to stop this tragedy, to support babies, women, journalists, judges, prosecutors, human rights defenders (incl. Amnesty International's Turkey staff) and many innocent others who are crushed under tyranny of Turkish dictatorial regime, who are imprisoned without any evidence, any trial. It is an important time to show that we can really succor each other from other parts of the world! Let us demonstrate that it is possible to change, to put pressure on a dictatorial regime and to force the authoritarians to follow democracy with the solidarity of nations. Let us request from related organizations worldwide to put pressure on Turkish Government to: release mothers of 668 babies at least on pending trial, stop torture and ill-treatment against detainees and prisoners, including especially against women, stop witch-hunt under the umbrella of state of emergency regime, dismissing, detaining and imprisoning people allegedly, release human rights defenders, including Amnesty International Turkey staff. stop abducting people by mafiatic ways I hope we all, together with you, will be able to mobilize some related organizations including United Nations, European Court of Human Rights and parliaments of most countries as much as possible. And I hope this petition will also be an example of solidarity of nations, an example that will give hope to all victims of unlawfulness around the world. You can sign the following petition also: #668BabiesToPrison For more information about what is going wrong in Turkey and the consequences of the collapse of law, visit: https://turkeypurge.com/ http://jwf.org/reports/
Petition to Bakers Delight Holdings Ltd
Bakers Delight - Audit All Outlets to Abolish Unlawful Child Labour & Backpay Workers
In 2017 the Retail and Fast Food Workers Union has exposed that Bakers Delight outlets operated by Caden Group Pty Ltd have not been paying the legal minimum wages, with many workers entitled to minimum Award conditions being paid incorrectly under old zombie agreements. On 8 December 2017, the Federal Circuit Court determined that many of these workers were entitled to Award conditions since the commencement of their employment (see MLG1193_2017). We are concerned this issue will affect many other Bakers Delight workers. Bakers Delight Holdings has not responded to our requests to undertake an audit. Ava and her co-workers have been campaigning for fair wages and conditions - just the minimum Award wage and rights. Until now they haven't had penalty rates, fair breaks, guaranteed hours or many other rights. They thought they had won in February 2017 when the operator of their Bakers Delight outlet admitted they should have those conditions but then their employer took them to court to argue a dodgy old zombie agreement applied instead. By sticking together and standing up they won. Now Bakers Delight needs to take responsibility, backpay these staff, and audit all other outlets to ensure no worker is getting ripped off. We have also exposed the use of unlawful child labour by at least one other Bakers Delight franchise - kids in workplaces using commercial ovens, slicers and knives. Bakers Delight Holdings has refused to undertake an audit on the use of child labour in all its franchises. Bakers Delight makes a fortune but doesn't take responsibility for what is happening in their outlets. It's time for an audit, a commitment to stamp out unlawful child labour and a promise to backpay every worker ripped off.
