A process to fill the most important post in the field of international criminal justice has been deadlocked for several months. Some countries had complained that the original four, chosen through a process that emphasised consensus, did not include enough figures with the international profile required for the job. The Trump administration rejects the court and denounced Bensouda for looking into actions of American troops in Afghanistan. The new candidates include Britian’s Karim Khan, who now heads a United Nations team investigating Islamic State crimes in Iraq, and Robert Petit, a former prosecutor at the Khmer Rouge tribunal in Cambodia. Widening the pool of candidates could delay the elections because ICC member states may want more than the two remaining weeks before the New York meeting to make a choice.

Breakingviews - Kiwis test limits of overburdened rate setters

LONDON (Reuters Breakingviews) - New Zealand led the way in central banking in the past. Now, the country that first formally asked independent monetary policymakers to target inflation is offering a lesson in the problems of overburdening rate setters. Finance Minister Grant Robertson said on Tuesday he had written to the central bank and asked for advice on whether house prices should be considered when setting monetary policy. It’s unrealistic to expect monetary policy to do much to rein in the racy housing market when the RBNZ, like many peers, is focused on trying to stimulate economic activity. There are better levers to do this, some of which the central bank is using.

Aeroporti di Roma (ADR), the unit of Italian infrastructure group Atlantia that runs Fiumicino airport, said the new protocol will be valid for those flying from New York JFK, Newark and Atlanta. In September, in an effort to resume domestic travel after the first wave of the epidemic, Italian carrier Alitalia experimented with COVID testing on some flights between Rome Fiumicino and Milan city airport Linate, Italy’s biggest hubs. The Italian government is expected to give the go-ahead to COVID-tested U.S. flights in the coming days, ADR said, adding that the government’s official backing will also allow them to offer such flights between Rome and Munich, and Rome and Frankfurt in Germany.

Rosenfield will begin work on Dec. 7 and officially take up the Chief of Staff role on Jan. 1, Downing Street said.

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan shut its schools and postponed exams on Thursday to try to curb new coronavirus infections and a rise in the number of people in hospital with COVID-19. Pakistan reported 3,306 new cases on Wednesday, and 40 deaths from the pandemic, with 2,485 patients currently admitted in hospitals, according to officials. The decision to close schools, officials have said, was based on an increase in the rate of positive test results in the country. The rate of people testing positive in June was as high as 23%, but dropped to a low of 1.7% by September. State television and radio stations were used to broadcast lessons for students at home for students in government schools.

In the end, their bumbling hypocrisies don't really matter to our decision; if 50 million people do a foolish thing, it is still a foolish thing.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. President-elect Joe Biden delivers an address ahead of Thanksgiving at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., November 25, 2020. “I know better days are coming.”Republican President Trump often likes to celebrate holidays at his Mar-a-Largo resort in Florida, but on Thursday he remained in the Washington area, spending part of the morning at his Trump National Golf Club in Virginia. In contrast to Biden, who pleaded with Americans to celebrate the holiday safely by wearing masks and socially distancing, Trump in his Thanksgiving proclamation on Wednesday urged Americans to “gather” for the holiday. In addition to Trump, several other prominent Americans including first lady Melania Trump and members of Congress have tested positive for COVID-19 following such events.

PARIS/BERLIN (Reuters) - French and German consumer confidence plunged in November as new coronavirus restrictions crushed any prospect of a quick return to normal in the euro zone’s two biggest economies, data published on Thursday showed. In France, which was put back under one the strictest lockdowns in Europe on Oct. 30, consumer confidence fell this month to its lowest level since December 2018, surpassing levels reached in March and April during a first and even harsher lockdown. France’s official stats agency, INSEE, said its consumer confidence index fell four points to 90, worse than the average expectation in a Reuters poll of economists for 92. In Germany, consumer morale fell further heading into December as a partial lockdown hit households’ income expectations and their willingness to buy, a survey showed. On Tuesday, President Emmanuel Macron said France would start gradually easing its lockdown this weekend, though many restrictions will remain.

Sushi Noz and others now trek to the second homes of New York City residents in the Hamptons and the Hudson Valley. Other restaurants, such as chef Masayoshi Takayama’s three-Michelin-starred Masa, have entered the delivery business in Manhattan. Masa now sells $800 sushi boxes meant to feed a four-person household.

REUTERS/Sergio PerezSEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea’s LG Corp said on Thursday its board had decided to restructure its conglomerate LG Group by separating some of its affiliates such as display chip maker Silicon Works Co Ltd to form a new conglomerate next year. It is the latest in a series of deals and restructuring of South Korea’s family-led conglomerates as they grow in size and go through generational succession. Koo Bon-joon will be chief executive of the new holding company, according to LG Corp’s regulatory filing. LG Group is South Korea’s fourth-largest conglomerate and its core businesses include consumer electronics, chemicals, household products and cosmetics, as well as parts such as batteries and displays used in GM, Tesla and Apple products. The logistics arm generated 64% of its 2019 revenue from other affiliates of LG Group including LG Electronics and LG Chem, according to its regulatory filing.

“It’s a message to regional banks that time is running short,” one of the sources said. It also marked another retreat from negative rates, a policy long criticised by banks as crushing yields across the curve and narrowing already thin margins, two other sources said. Combined net profits at Japan’s 102 regional banks have tumbled 40% over the past four years as lending margins sank to 0.2%. The growing alarm within the board over the demerits of his stimulus programme may make it harder for Kuroda to ease further, especially by deepening negative rates. “If banking-sector problems are as serious as the BOJ suggests, deepening negative rates would make matters worse,” said a fourth source familiar with the BOJ’s thinking.

The U.S. Supreme Court issued an injunction late Wednesday blocking New York’s governor from enforcing 10- and 25-person occupancy limits on religious institutions, granting a request from the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Agudath Israel. The court apparently divided 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissenting. The court said there’s no evidence that the organizations that brought the lawsuit have contributed to the spread of Covid-19. Breyer said if the state seeks to reimpose the limits, the plaintiffs can come back to the court. Sotomayor and Kagan said granting the injunction “will only exacerbate the nation’s suffering.”Both Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh filed concurrences.

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s government is to declare a climate emergency in a symbolic step to increase pressure for action to combat global warming. Slideshow ( 2 images )The government will put forward a motion to declare the emergency next Wednesday, the government said as parliament reconvened after a general election won by Ardern’s party. The resounding win allows Ardern’s party to govern alone although she has joined forces with the Green Party for the next three-year term. If a climate emergency is passed, New Zealand would join countries like Canada, France and Britain that have taken the same course to focus efforts on tackling climate change. Last week, Japanese lawmakers declared a climate emergency and committed to a firm timetable for net-zero emissions.
