Dutch law mandating mask use against coronavirus goes into effect
  + stars: | 2020-12-01 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
REUTERS/Eva PlevierAMSTERDAM (Reuters) - A law mandating the use of face masks to slow the spread of coronavirus went into effect in the Netherlands on Tuesday, completing a gradual turnabout in policy. A requirement that masks be worn in public buildings, including schools, supermarkets and restaurants, will be imposed for an initial three months. The World Health Organization began recommending their use in public places when maintaining social distance is impossible from June. However, on Sept. 30 the government changed tack and decided to “strongly advise” the use of masks in crowded public places. The measure required parliament to adopt a special law to overcome constitutional guarantees on personal freedoms.

A requirement that masks be worn in public buildings, including schools, supermarkets and restaurants, will be imposed for an initial three months. The World Health Organization began recommending their use in public places when maintaining social distance was impossible from June. However, on Sept. 30 the government changed tack and decided to “strongly advise” the use of masks in crowded public places, as most health authorities now recommend. Despite the government’s advice, the RIVM website says that any benefit from wearing cloth masks will “probably be modest”. Making the measure mandatory required parliament to adopt a special law to overcome constitutional guarantees on personal freedoms.

REUTERS/Benoit Tessier/File PhotoAMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Royal Dutch Shell will face a Dutch court on Tuesday in the first hearing of a case brought on by environmentalist and human rights groups who demand the energy firm cuts its reliance on fossil fuels. The plaintiffs say that Shell is threatening human rights by knowingly undermining international climate goals, as it keeps investing billions in the exploitation of fossil fuels. “We are confident that the judge’s final verdict will force Shell to adhere to international climate goals and stop causing dangerous climate change”, Friends of the Earth Netherlands director Donald Pols said on the eve of the hearing. But the action groups demand at least a 45% reduction by 2030, relative to the pollution caused in 2019, as a step towards carbon-neutral production two decades later. The district court of The Hague, home of Shell’s Dutch headquarters, has planned four days of hearings in the case in December.

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Swiss authorities said on Monday they had launched a criminal investigation into three subsidiaries of Netherlands-based SBM Offshore for allegedly failing to prevent past corruption of foreign government officials. SBM has paid hundreds of millions of dollars (euros) over the past decade to settle bribery cases in the Netherlands, Brazil and the United States. No individuals were named by either SBM or the Swiss officials, but SBM’s chairman from 2005 to 2015 was a Swiss national. Authorities, SBM said in a statement. SBM Offshore spokesman Aarne Luten “it is too early to comment” on a possible provision for a potential fine by Swiss authorities.

REUTERS/Eric Vidal/File PhotoAMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch government expects its debt-to-GDP ratio to have risen to 57.4% by the end of 2020 as a result of heavy spending to support the economy during the coronavirus pandemic, it said on Monday. Dutch debt to gross domestic product (GDP) stood at 48.7% at the end of 2020, making it one of the few countries to adhere to euro zone rules that allow a maximum of 60%. The budget deficit will be around 6.2% this year, the finance ministry said, high but below a forecast of 7.2% given by Finance Minister Wopke Hoekstra in September. “The Cabinet has spent billions on one-time support to prevent mass bankruptcies and unemployment,” the ministry said in a statement.

While opening alternative trading platforms in the EU won’t lead to many jobs leaving London, other trading-related activities, such as clearing and settlement, are also likely to move over time.

Oil-services firm SBM Offshore NV is facing an investigation by the Swiss government into bribery allegations that the company said it has already paid hundreds of millions of dollars to resolve in three other countries. Amsterdam-based SBM Offshore said Monday that three of its subsidiaries had received notice of a probe by Swiss prosecutors who are investigating whether the subsidiaries failed to implement measures to prevent corrupt payments between 2005 and 2012. PREVIEWThe Swiss probe underscores the risks posed to companies by the proliferation of antibribery laws such as the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. The latest SBM Offshore probe is related to allegations that it has resolved in the U.S., Brazil and the Netherlands, according to the company. Swiss prosecutors didn’t identify the former executive in the statement.

Orsted says largest Dutch offshore wind farm ready to deliver

REUTERS/Phil NobleAMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Danish energy firm Orsted said on Friday it had finished building the largest offshore wind farm of the Netherlands, the first in a range that should boost the country’s share of sustainable energy in the coming decade. The 752 megawatt (MW) wind farm is currently the second largest in the world, Orsted said, and will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of around a million Dutch households. The ‘Borssele’ wind farm consists of 94 turbines spread over 112 square kilometres (43.2 square miles) in the North Sea, some 23 kilometres (14 miles) off the Dutch coast. Orsted won the right to build the wind farm in an auction in 2016, at what was a record low subsidy on the electricity delivered at the time. It aims to grant permits for another 6100 MW of wind power through four tenders in the next five years.

Cooled packages are being transported by airplane at the Schiphol Airport as Air France-KLM's cargo operations are preparing a massive logistical operation carrying new vaccines and vaccine candidates for COVID-19 through Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, Netherlands November 25, 2020. “The short and sweet of it is, yes, we’re ready,” KLM Chief Executive Pieter Elbers told Reuters.

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Judges hearing the case against four defendants in the 2014 downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine rejected on Wednesday a defence request for more time to investigate alternative explanations for the crash. The Dutch government holds Moscow responsible, and three Russians and a Ukrainian are on trial for murder. One, Russian Oleg Pulatov, is represented in court proceedings; the other three are being tried in absentia. Russia has always denied involvement and has promoted a range of alternative theories, which the investigators rejected as unsupported by evidence. He added the court would also like to hear from the other suspects -- Russians Sergey Dubinsky and Igor Girkin, and Ukrainian Leonid Kharchenko -- who have never cooperated with the court.

Relatives were initially hesitant to share the news with him, instead waiting several weeks before explaining why Richard DeLisi was unable to return his son’s phone calls. Advocates for DeLisi have worked for decades to secure his early release from prison, citing both health and legal concerns. As more states decriminalize and legalize cannabis, draconian prison sentences need to be revisited, said Chiara Juster, a marijuana criminal reform advocate and lawyer on DeLisi’s legal team. Richard DeLisi appealed that same year but was unsuccessful. When Richard DeLisi is finally released from prison, Rick DeLisi intends to pack up his family and fly to the U.S. despite the pandemic.

Air France-KLM, which has decades of experience shipping medicines and vaccines in temperature-controlled conditions, is preparing a test run in coming days to fly out dummy vaccine shipments from KLM’s Amsterdam-Schiphol hub. The COVID-19 airlift is being planned amid a partial shutdown of global air travel. Air France-KLM does not rule out bringing idled jets back into service for the vaccine shipments, pharma cargo manager Florent Gand said. “We have some planes currently grounded that we can use if necessary to transport the COVID-19 vaccines around the world.”
