Cellebrite and Chainalysis are also collaborating to empower customers to bridge the cryptocurrency knowledge gap. Together, they will educate customers’ internal experts by offering cryptocurrency training and delivering cryptocurrency expert investigation services, as well as making Chainalysis’ Reactor, the investigation tool, available for advanced cryptocurrency tracing.

“Cryptocurrency, as any other financial instrument, has become a vehicle for funding crime and laundering money, and as its adoption increases, our customers must be equipped with cutting-edge solutions to identify this important category of digital evidence,” said Leeor Ben-Peretz, Chief Strategy Officer at Cellebrite. “Providing our customers with an integrated cryptocurrency investigation solution will expedite their investigations through automation and help them seamlessly uncover a wider range of digital evidence within Cellebrite’s suite of Digital Intelligence solutions.

Algeria marks 60 years of independence from France

ALGIERS— Algeria marks 60 years of independence from France on Tuesday with a huge military parade, but memories of violence during the colonial period continue to overshadow ties between the two.

The North African country won its independence following a gruelling eight-year war, which ended with the signing in March 1962 of the Evian Accords.

On July 5 of the same year, days after 99.72 percent voted for independence in a referendum, Algeria finally broke free from colonial rule — but memories of the 132-year occupation continue to mar its ties with France.

Authorities on Friday closed a 16-kilometre stretch of a major artery in Algiers for the army to carry out final rehearsals for its parade, the first in 33 years.

The closure has caused huge tailbacks on roads leading to the eastern suburbs of the capital.

President Abdelmadjid Tebboune is to preside over the parade, hosting several foreign dignitaries including Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, Tunisia’s Kais Saied and Niger’s Mohamed Bazoum.

The government has even commissioned a logo — a circle of 60 stars containing military figures and equipment — to mark “a glorious history and a new era”.

Algeria’s war of independence left hundreds of thousands of dead, but six decades on, despite a string of gestures by French President Emmanuel Macron, France has ruled out any form of apology for the colonial period.

“There’s no way we can forget or erase the human genocide, the cultural genocide and the identity genocide of which colonial France remains guilty,” said Salah Goudjil, speaker of the Algerian parliament’s upper house, in an interview published by newspaper L’Expression on Monday.

French-Algerian ties hit a low late last year after Macron reportedly questioned whether Algeria had existed as a nation before the French invasion and accused its “political-military system” of rewriting history and fomenting “hatred towards France”.

Algeria withdrew its ambassador in response, but the two sides appear to have mended ties since.

Macron and Tebboune confirmed in a June 18 phone call their desire to “deepen” relations and Tebboune invited his French counterpart to visit Algiers.

Update: 34 killed in two jihadist attacks in Burkina Faso

OUAGADOUGOU— Suspected jihadists killed at least 34 people in attacks on villages in northern Burkina Faso at the weekend, officials and sources said.

In the northwest of the country, 22 people, reportedly including children, were killed late Sunday at Bourasso in Kossi province, said Boucle du Mouhoun regional governor Babo Pierre Bassinga.

“Armed men moved around the village at around 5:00 pm, firing in the air. They came back at night and blindly opened fire on people,” a security source said.

In northern Burkina Faso, 12 people died on Saturday in an attack at Namissiguima in Yatenga province, another security source said.

Three of the dead were members of a civilian militia, the Volunteers for the Defence of the Fatherland (VDP) — an auxiliary force set up in December 2019 to support the army.

Burkina Faso, one of the poorest countries in the world, has been grappling with a jihadist insurgency that swept in from neighbouring Mali in 2015.

The campaign, led mainly by groups linked to Al-Qaeda and the Daesh group, has claimed thousands of lives and forced some 1.9 million people to flee their homes.

More than 40 percent of the country lies outside the control of the government, according to official figures.

Burkina Faso underwent a coup in January, when disgruntled colonels ousted elected president Roch Marc Christian Kabore.

The new strongman, Lieutenant-Colonel Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba, declared security to be his top priority but after a relative lull, attacks resumed, with the loss of hundreds of lives.

Malaysian PM Arrives In Turkiye For Four-Day Official Visit

ISTANBUL— Malaysian Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob arrived here Tuesday for a four-day official visit to Turkiye (picture).

The special aircraft carrying Ismail Sabri and his delegation touched down at the Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (ISGIA) at 8.40 am local time (1.40 pm Malaysian time).

On hand to welcome the premier at the airport, which is owned and managed by Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad, were Malaysia’s Foreign Minister Saifuddin Abdullah, Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Dr Adham Baba and Malaysian Ambassador to Turkiye, Sazali Mustafa Kamal.

Also present were the Governor of Sabiha Gokcen International Airport, Halil Avsar, MAHB chairman Dr Zambry Abd Kadir and government officials from both countries.

The official welcoming ceremony for the visit will be held in Ankara on Thursday.

The visit, at the invitation of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, began with the prime minister touring the ISGIA upon his arrival.

The airport, one of two international airports serving Istanbul, is in the Asian part of the bi-continental Istanbul and ranked as Europe’s sixth busiest airport and second fastest-recovering airport in Europe in 2021.

After visiting ISGIA, the Prime Minister will host a luncheon for Keluarga Malaysia residing in the country, before holding meetings with top Turkish corporations including Turkish Wealth Fund and Oyak.

During the meetings, Ismail Sabri is expected to explore bilateral commodity trading opportunities, with an emphasis on food security as well as strengthening cooperation through the sharing of technology.

On Thursday, Ismail Sabri is scheduled to have a four-eyed meeting with Erdogan at the Presidential Complex in Ankara, followed by a Malaysia-Turkey delegation meeting.

The prime minister is being accompanied by International Trade and Industry Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Special Functions) Abdul Latiff Ahmad, Chief of Malaysian Air Force General Mohd Asghar Khan Goriman Khan, as well as Chief of Army General Zamrose Mohd Zain.

During his stay in the Turkish capital, the premier is scheduled to visit the country’s two major players in defence and aerospace – MKE Corporation and Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) respectively.

Turkiye is Malaysia’s third-biggest trading partner in the Middle East after Saudi Arabia and UAE, with total trade between the two countries recorded at RM16.97 billion (US$4.09 billion) in 2021, and projects implemented valued at RM444.59 million (US$130.91 million).

In 2021, Malaysia exported more than US$1.06 billion worth of palm oil and palm oil products to support the burgeoning demand, particularly in the Turkish food industry, as well as the home and personal care industry.

Article By Algeria’s Ambassador To Malaysia In Conjunction With Independence Day Of Algeria

KUALA LUMPUR — The people of Algeria commemorate today, July 5th, the sixtieth anniversary of its glorious independence day, the crowing of the heroic, strong, long and bitter struggle against colonialism, occupation and domination and for the recovery of national sovereignty of Algeria, a several-thousand-year-old country and whose roots are deeply anchored in history. July 5th was, also, the culmination of a great battle for freedom, dignity and fundamental human rights.

For its liberty and national independence, Algerian people have paid a high price and made great sacrifices. More than 1.5 million of our heroes died so that our beloved Algeria lives free in peace, dignity and prosperity.

Today is a great opportunity to celebrate our great victory, dignify our vast achievements and successes and honour our brave and valiant martyrs and Mujahideens, who fought resolutely against the abject coloniser who mobilised all means of massacre, brutality and destruction.

This sacred day is, also, a big moment to meditate on the ideals and sacred national principals and to confirm our full respect to our martyr’s oath and attachment to building a strong, united, prosperous and respected Algeria.

This day served as a source of radiation of human values. Algeria supported the liberation movements and the just struggles of the peoples to defeat colonialism, occupation and racial discrimination and to recover their basic rights and their freedom in Africa and around the world.

Guided by the sacred principals of justice and self-determination, Algeria strongly supports the Palestinian just cause in order to end the occupation and establish an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its Capital and the inalienable right of the Saharawi people to self-determination, through the organisation of a free and fair referendum to allow them to determine their political future.

Since its independence, Algeria has made significant progress and achievements in all fields of development to meet our aspirations and expectations for a better life and well-being. Great efforts and important reforms were made to further strengthen the economy, reinforce the financial capacities of the country, create jobs and improve living conditions in terms of housing, education and health care of the Algerian people.

The 54 commitments of Abelmadjid Tebboune, President of Algeria, aim to build the new Algeria, stronger and prosperous. The democratic renewal of the entire institutional structure of the country has been enabled, capacities of our industry and agriculture are being improved and reinforced, hundreds of thousands of medium and small-sized companies are being created and huge infrastructures consolidated.

Economic recovery is one of the major priorities of President Tebboune. 2022 will be the year of economic upturn in a new Algeria that counts on its potential to remain open to cooperation with all partners based on common interests.

Recently, Algeria is considering the draft of a new law that provides measures to implement the commitments of the President of the Republic to the improvement of the investment climate and ensure appropriate conditions to free initiatives and to enhance and diversify the national economy.

Under the leadership of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, Algeria is strengthening its position as a major key player in the stability and establishment of peace in the region and remains at the heart of the international scene. Our foreign policy, based on the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of states and on the spirit of friendship, good neighbouring and cooperation, allows us to deal with security threats in Africa and the region. My country, due to its internal stability and democratic environment, is exporting peace and security – mainly to neighbouring countries.

Moreover, the achievements of Algeria in the fight against terrorism, crime and different scourges such as drug trafficking and smuggling, empower it to be an essential actor in Africa.

Algeria has been involved in several mediation endeavours in the region’s conflicts and crises and is making efforts to stabilise the region and resolve those crises by addressing their main causes and defending the high values of dialogue, negotiation, mutual trust, respect and cooperation.

The next Arab Summit will be hosted by Algeria on November 1st and 2nd. We are looking forward to strengthening the Arab League and providing a basis for the joint Arab action in a new spirit.

Algeria is also playing an active role in the Non-Aligned Movement, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and in the African Union, stressing its commitments to preserve and defend the principals of peace, security, justice, friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation.

As to the bilateral relations, we would like to take this important and joyous opportunity to highlight the excellent and cordial ties that bind Algeria and Malaysia. Malaysia is a friendly country and the relationship linking our two countries is based on cooperation and mutual respect and understanding.

We share the same desire to enhance our nation’s development and construction and to ensure the sustainable wellbeing and prosperity of our people. We also share the same values and objectives and the common commitment to consolidating multilateralism, upholding international law, promoting the peaceful settlements of disputes and conflicts and making the world safer, secure and more flourishing.

On this great occasion, we would like to express the full willingness of Algeria to work closely with the Government of Malaysia to further strengthen and diversify our bilateral relations that happily unite our two countries as well as to promote the investments and the commercial and economic exchanges between Algeria and Malaysia for the benefit of our two brotherly peoples.

Long live Algeria and Glory to our valiant Chouhada (Martyrs)

Soccer: Sierra Leone probes ‘impractical’ scorelines of 91-1 and 95-0

FREETOWN— The Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) has launched an investigation into two first division matches that finished with scorelines of 91-1 and 95-0, describing them as impractical results.

The West African country’s soccer governing body said it was investigating officials and players who were involved in the two fixtures, in which Gulf FC defeated Koquima Lebanon 91-1 and Lumbenbu United were beaten 95-0 by Kahula Rangers.

The SLFA said it had zero tolerance for match manipulation or anything of the sort.

“The general public is therefore assured that the said matter will be thoroughly investigated and anyone found culpable will face the full force of the law,” it said in a statement.

If confirmed, the two scorelines would rank among the highest recorded in soccer history.

The highest is thought to have occurred in Madagascar in 2002 when AS Adema beat SO l’Emyrne 149-0. The SO l’Emyrne players intentionally scored one own goal after another in protest over refereeing decisions with which they disagreed.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias’ speech at the event for the presentation of the new corporate identity of the Export Credit Insurance Organization (ECIO) (Athens, 05.07.2022)

My dear colleagues – and I am referring to all the Secretaries General and Presidents. We are a team working together in this effort at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

I would like to welcome you to today’s event here at our Ministry.

I believe than an event which actually has to do with boosting exports is probably the first time that it is so clearly included in the tasks and mission and activities of this Ministry.

And I think that this in itself is something extremely significant; because the importance of our country’s exports and the need to boost them is more than obvious.

I recall that in the years of the crisis, in the difficult decade of 2010, at the time when I served as Minister of Development, I had stated that regardless of the debt arrangement, it would have obviously made no difference unless Greece was able to increase its exports. We would be back at the crisis point again after a few years.

Therefore, it is particularly important for my colleagues in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and for me that we have been given the mandate by the Prime Minister to work, inter alia, on the promotion of Greek exports.

And I have to tell you that this is psychologically simple for us, because we have faith in Greek products, in their worth and quality. We have faith in the human capital, in Greek industrialists, in Greek manufacturers, in Greek entrepreneurs. We believe in their resourcefulness, their competence, and their professionalism.

Today, we are coming to close a marked gap that was causing difficulties in our country’s export activity.

The creation of the “Export Credit Greece S.A.” is a key reform. One of the many that this government is implementing, I have to say perhaps more discreetly than it should.

And there are many innovations contained in this new chapter for our country’s exports. Mr. Stamatopoulos will present them in-depth later on.

But I would like to focus on two points, which I consider to be the most important:

The first is that this Organization was created with an eye on European and global best practices.

With the assistance of the Italian SACE organization, we were able to apply the best practices from both European and global experience.

Because, ladies and gentlemen, one thing we have to learn in Greece is that there is no need to constantly reinvent the wheel.

Also, a second point I would like to underscore is something that is usually difficult for us Greeks to achieve, but in this case I think we were successful: the equal and sincere cooperation of a number of stakeholders who would have, and should have a say, and they rightly did have a say. The stakeholders in the country’s export ecosystem: SEVE [Greek Exporters Association], PEA [Panhellenic Exporters Association], EAC [Exporters’ Association of Crete], financial institutions, private insurers, institutional actors, all worked together in a partnership that resulted in the outcome that is presented to you today.

And, of course, the cordiality and sincerity of this cooperation is demonstrated by the ecosystem’s acceptance of this reform.

I therefore express the hope that today we are turning a new page. We are now in a position to support Greek exporters in a much better, more proper and more effective way.

Since we are at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I would like to make a more general comment on the role of exports. And, in fact, to make an observation that is important in these times of great instability, which we had hoped we would never experience again in our continent and in the world.

Apart from the obvious effect on our country’s standard of living, trade partnerships, the bridges built through exports, offer an additional significant added value. They bring closer states and societies, foster understandings, consolidate and deepen the alliances and understandings already established by the Ministry and the Government. And they also bring societies closer together, removing friction and misunderstandings.

So, whichever way one looks at it, at whatever level one analyses it, today’s significant reform is a very crucial step forward for our Ministry, for us who are adopting it, for the Government, for Greek society, for the country, and I would like to express the deepest gratitude of my colleagues and myself for your presence here today.

Because we are all taking this crucial step together.

Thank you so much.
