militant group Islamic State Iraqi forces have retaken control of Ramadi from Islamic Statewith the US also hailing their victory "The expulsion of ISIL (another name for Islamic State) by Iraqi security forces supported by our international coalition is a significant step forward in the campaign to defeat this barbaric group and restore Iraq’s territorial sovereignty" US Defence Secretary Ashton Carter said Iraq on Sundaydeclared that it had liberated Ramadi the capital of Anbar province west of Baghdad in central part of the country and was conducting combing operations in the area to check for bombs or booby traps left behind by Islamic State fighters Iraq Army in Ramadi AFP Congratulating the Iraqi Prime Minister on their progress in retaking Ramadi the US Defence Secretary said the fight for the city demonstrates how capable motivated local forces backed by coalition air support and training can defeat Islamic State Now it’s important for the Iraqi government working with provincial and local authorities to seize this opportunity to maintain the peace in Ramadi prevent the return of Islamic State and other extremists and facilitate the return of Ramadi’s citizens back to the city Carter said "Even with this success the fight against ISIL is far from over" he added Commending the Iraqi government US Secretary of State John Kerry said dislodging Islamic State from areas it has occupied is a central part of Iraq’s security strategy but it is also vital to rebuild and stabilise the areas that have been liberated "In Ramadi these efforts will be led by the Iraqi government and coordinated on the ground by Anbar Governor Sohaib al-Rawi and his team" he said adding that the US and members of the Coalition have pledged or contributed over $50 million to the UNDP stabilisation fund to support these efforts "While Ramadi is not yet fully secure and additional parts of the city still must be retaken Iraq’s national flag now flies above the provincial government center and enemy forces have suffered a major defeat" Kerry said "These gains attest to the growing confidence and capability of Iraqi forces who are fighting bravely against a ruthless adversary employing suicide bombers snipers and improvised explosive devices" he said Describing the liberation of the city centre of Ramadi as a major milestone in the fight against Islamic State Senator John McCain said the recent capture of Tishreen Dam by opposition forces in Syria similarly supported by US and coalition forces also represents a meaningful setback for the militant group "However no one should understate how much work remains and how much more difficult that work will be than liberating Ramadi The black flags of ISIL still fly over Mosul Raqqa and other key parts of Iraq and Syria" he said "This threat is also metastasizing across the Middle East North Africa and South Asia And it now poses a more direct threat than ever to our homeland and that of our allies as we have seen in recent terrorist attacks in San Bernardino Paris Beirut Ankara and the downing of a Russian airliner over Sinai" he added McCain said if the goal truly is to destroy Islamic State in the near future rather than kick the can down the road for others to deal with the United States must play a far more active role than we are now especially in supporting local Sunni Arab forces to take the fight to ISIL themselves "More than anything this requires the President to speak clearly to the American people about the nature of the threat we are facing what it will take to succeed and have the resolve to see it through So long as this President is unwilling or incapable of exercising this leadership the threat we face will only grow" he said PTI Written by Sandeep Ashar | Mumbai | Published: June 27 2017 2:54 am The Khar property in which Justice Thipsay owns a share (Express Photo by Aishwarya Maheshwari) Top News A senior judge who had been offered an apartment in the highrise proposed to be built for Bombay High Court judges’ in Oshiwara may now lose his membership The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) — which is to build the highrise — has kept the membership it granted to Justice Abhay Thipsay in abeyance after it was found that he already owned a share in an ancestral property MHADA officials said this had been “overlooked” while granting the membership A proposal for its rejection is now being formulated sources said The Indian Express had earlier reported how Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had sanctioned an exclusive housing scheme for serving HC judges over a 32300-square feet public land in Oshiwara where an affordable housing scheme for the middle income segments had been planned earlier Under it the MHADA will build 84 homes each of 1076-sqft carpet area to be allotted to the judges on ownership The government has so far approved membership of 39 judges in the society Documents accessed under the Right to Information Act show that Justice Thipsay’s membership had been approved on August 19 2016 The judge retired from service on March 9 2017 Government sources admitted that the entire episode raises questions over the process to decide the eligibility According to information a private complaint in November last year had objected to the grant of the membership to Justice Thipsay which prompted MHADA to review his membership The objection had been raised on the grounds that the judge already owned a share in a private property in Khar A MHADA-built tenement is out of bounds for people if they their spouse or their minor children already own a house a flat or a residential plot in the same municipal limit Confirming that he had received an intimation from the MHADA regarding the staying of his membership Justice Thipsay told The Indian Express: “While submitting my application for membership to the society (on June 30 2016) I had disclosed to both the MHADA and the promoters of the proposed society about the inheritance of 25 per cent stake in an ancestral property Smruti in Khar which was originally owned by my mother After my mother’s demise the property came to be devolved upon me my father and my three siblings After my father passed away his undivided share was also devolved upon me and the siblings” “The property is owned jointly and is undivided My share in the property has neither been identified or defined Further there are tenants who occupy 40 per cent portion of the property” the judge added pointing out that this had been disclosed in his application for membership While the judge lived in his official residence till his retirement his family now lives on the third floor of the Khar building He added “There is no flat or residential accommodation exclusively owned by me or by my spouse” Stating that he had not taken any concessional benefit from the government during his service Justice Thipsay added “I cannot afford to purchase a suitable flat at market value considering the high cost of such flats in Mumbai Therefore I’d applied for membership to the proposed society” “No objection was raised at when In applied But now the same submissions and declarations I’d made are being cited to raise objections over the membership” said the judge Admitting that disclosures by the judge about the inheritance of the property had been “overlooked” a senior MHADA official requesting anonymity said that the officials concerned had been “reprimanded for the serious lapse”On December 14 2017 the MHADA first wrote to Thipsay regarding the deficiency The judge replied on March 10 2017 a day after his retirement While claiming that he was willing to forego the membership the judge told The Indian Express that he has contested the argument that he wasn’t a “bonafide applicant” “The question that needs to be decided at the higher level is whether a jointly-owned property fits in the definition of ‘ownership’ as defined in (MHADA’s) regulations for deciding the eligibility of an application The definition must be limited to individually and singularly owned properties It is unfair if all those jointly holding stakes in a property are debarred from applying for a MHADA tenement” The judge said he had held a meeting with this regard in April with the then MHADA Vice President Sambhaji Zende upon the latter’s invitation But officials said his grounds could not be accepted as they would set a “precedent” for all past and future allotments under MHADA The judge said “While applying for membership to the society I was advised by some to dispose of or gift my share in the Khar property to a relative but I chose not to hide the information In the past there have been cases where a person has bagged multiple allotments from the government by simply gifting or not disclosing his first allotment But it would have been wrong to adopt such a route” For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten
