The corporate governance code was first introduced in 2000 and was reviewed twice, in 2007 and 2012. In addressing market concerns over the independence of independent directors, the tenure of independent directors should not exceed nine years. “When an independent director serves for a long tenure, it will create doubt on their independence and their ability to challenge the management,” SC chief regulatory officer Foo Lee Mei said at the launch. According to the SC, 810 independent directors have served for more than nine years, with the longest tenure being 37 years. An independent director may still continue to remain on the board as a non-independent director after a cumulative term of nine years. However, in order to retain the person as an independent director, the board should provide justification and seek shareholdersapproval between years 10 and 12 and go through a two-tier vote after the 12th year.

I felt under extreme stress as I shifted among social media pages searching for good news regarding a very bad situation. What made it worse were the insults about Palestinians some racist people posted on Twitter. That night, I tweeted this: It's 12:08 a.m. The fifth day of the clashes in Ein El-Helweh has already started.” On Tuesday morning, silence prevailed after a harsh night. Still, I didn't leave my home. At 2:44 p.m., the clashes resumed and continued all night until Wednesday dawn. As I write this essay, it is 11 p.m. on the 12th of April. It is a calm night. Camp residents had returned to see their properties. The photos and videos I saw of the damage were really shocking.

THE latest revelations of wrongdoing in high places struck Brazil with the force of a Netflix release: they are riveting, but so far have left the real world undisturbed. On April 12th Edson Fachin, the supreme-court justice who is overseeing a vast probe into corruption centred on Petrobras, the state-controlled oil company, authorised prosecutors to investigate eight government ministers, 24 senators, 39 deputies in the lower house of congress and three state governors. He sent dozens of cases to lower courts; they will now consider whether to launch new criminal inquiries into nine more state governors and three former presidents. All the big political parties and most front-runners in next year’s presidential election have been tarnished (see chart). This fresh scourging of the political class comes at an awkward time. Brazil’s worst recession on record has not ended. Michel Temer, who became president last year after the impeachment of his predecessor, Dilma... Continue reading

LONDON: Liverpool must work together as a team to improve in defence and stop giving away goals, defender Ragnar Klavan says. Liverpool are third in the Premier League table but have conceded the most goals amongst the top six teams, leading to disappointing results including last Sunday's 2-1 loss to 12th-placed Crystal Palace. "It's not easy to put it down to a couple of things, but we have to work together as a team," Klavan told the club's website, www.liverpoolfc.com "That's our goal, of course, to not concede any goals in any game, but this is football and everybody has good strikers as well. It's not so easy to pinpoint exactly what is going on." Liverpool have managed to keep just eight clean sheets in 34 league fixtures this season. "I think it's not just one thing, there are multiple things put together that make the whole difference," the 31-year-old said.

Those are not words you will often read. It's like reading that the Earth is flat. Team officials who have contacted the Browns said Cleveland likely will walk away with defensive end Myles Garrett and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The belief among a half-dozen front office executives is the Browns will take Garrett with the first overall pick, then package their No. 12 pick to move into the top five to seven to take Trubisky. (Note: This is your friendly reminder that during the run-up to the draft many teams lie. Every team lies. There is so much fog right about now it would cover a seaside town.) Still, what I'm being told is the Brownsfor nowwant to stay at No. 1. They'll only move from that top spot if they get an offer that's impossible to refuse. But that 12th pick is different. They are making calls, and entertaining them, about moving up.

Brandon McCoy, a 5-star center hailing from San Diego, California, is headed to the UNLV Rebels next season after formally committing Tuesday. McCoy broke the news on his Twitter page: A true seven-footer, McCoy established himself as one of the premier bigs in the class of 2017. According to Scout.com , the Cathedral Catholic High School product is the 12th-ranked player overall and the fifth-ranked player at his position among all 2017 recruits. He's also the second-ranked center in the West Region and California's No. 1 prospect among 5s. On tape, McCoy immediately stands out for a couple of reasons. Not only does he tower over the competition, but he possesses a deft touch from the outside for a player his size. Now, that doesn't mean McCoy makes a living on jumpers from the free-throw line and beyond. However, a bit of range means McCoy can provide supplementary outside scoring in ways other bigs at the college level can't.

Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Albert Pujols drove in Mike Trout in the fourth inning of Monday's contest against the Toronto Blue Jays, tying the game at one apiece. The Angels went on to win the game 2-1, but Pujols' RBI had a little more significance in this instance. It marked his 1,833rd career RBI, tying him with Dave Winfield for the 17th-most in MLB history, per Sportsnet Stats . However, Winfield played in 22 different seasons, while Pujols is just in his 17th professional campaign. Once the veteran collects another RBI, it won't take long for him to move further up the leaderboard. Pujols sits just two behind Rafael Palmeiro for 16th on the list and three behind Ken Griffey for 15th. Assuming he remains healthy, The Machine should rise to 12th in the rankings at a minimum. He could also stand a chance at moving even higher on the list to catch the likes of Willie Mays (1,903), Eddie Murray (1,917) and Jimmie Foxx (1,922) to crack the top nine.

With the 2017 NFL draft just two days away, the Cleveland Browns are trying to trade up into the top eight of the first round, NFL Network's Michael Silver reported. According to Silver, " at least three teams in the top eight have been contacted by the Browns and discussions have taken place about the prospect of moving up." Should the Browns move up from the 12th overall selection, the aim would almost certainly be getting one of the top quarterbacks available. Edge-rusher Myles Garrett is the presumptive favorite to go first overall. Bleacher Report's Matt Miller and Doug Farrar both listed Garrett as the top pick in their most recent mock drafts. Should Cleveland take Garrett, there's no guarantee Mitchell Trubisky or Deshaun Watson would be available by the time the Browns are picking again at No. 12. The San Francisco 49ers , Chicago Bears , New York Jets and Los Angeles Chargers all need a quarterback to some extent, and any one of the four could take Trubisky or Watson in the top eight.

A Saudi novelist has won the International Prize for Arabic Fiction, becoming the third author in 10 years from the kingdom to grab the Arab world's most prestigious literary award. Mohammed Hasan Alwan won for his novel "A Small Death", which is a fictionalised account of the life of a Sufi scholar and philosopher, Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi, from his birth in Muslim Spain in the 12th century until his death in Damascus. The novel follows Ibn Arabi's mystic Sufi experience and heroic travels from Andalusia to Azerbaijan, via Morocco, Egypt, the Hijaz in today's western Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iraq and Turkey, according to an abstract posted on the prize website. "Of a sensitive and anxious nature, Muhyiddin struggles with inner turmoil throughout the course of his travels," the abstract said. Though "90 percent of the novel is fiction," Alwan said after receiving the award "I felt the pain while writing it.
