It has also made further progress on cost savings, while its Studios division is expected to enjoy a strong finish to the financial year.Despite this, ITV is forecast to post a 1% fall in its bottom line in the current year. This is not a huge surprise, since an uncertain macroeconomic environment is likely to weigh on its prospects over the near term.Looking ahead to next year, the company is forecast to produce a significant improvement in its financial performance. Its bottom line is expected to rise by over 6%, which could help to boost investor sentiment towards the stock. It may also help to reinvigorate its dividend payments, and could make it a more attractive income share while it offers a dividend yield of around 6%.Therefore, ITV may not make rapid gains in 2020, but it seems to have the potential to deliver impressive total returns in the long run.Standard CharteredAlso offering an improving dividend outlook is Standard Chartered (LSE: STAN). The bank’s most recent trading update showed that the changes made within its operations over the past few years seem to be improving its financial performance.This is forecast to produce a 16% rise in its bottom line in the current year, with an 18% rise in earnings expected in 2021. This could help it afford to pay a higher dividend to its investors, with its current dividend yield of 3.9% expected to be covered 2.7 times by net profit in the current year.As well as its improving income prospects, Standard Chartered could deliver a rising share price. Despite its improving financial performance, the stock trades on a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of just 0.7.Therefore, while there may be economic challenges ahead in some of its key markets, the bank’s valuation indicates that it offers a wide margin of safety. This could mean that now is the right time to buy a slice of it and hold it over the long run. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Forget gold!

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The UK stock market might be in for a rough ride this winter. Coronavirus infection rates are already rising, and the colder months ahead could make things worse. However, I think Sumo (LSE:SUMO) shareholders will do just fine if that happens, while the Cineworld (LSE:CINE) share price will suffer.CineworldCineworld’s 663 theatres across the UK and US remained shut from March through much of summer 2020. This lead to a reported loss of $1.64bn for the first six months of 2020. At the same time, $419m of net debt was issued, further bloating the balance sheet. Around three-quarters of Cineworld’s theatres were showing films again in September. Last week they all closed again. Too few customers are tempted by the limited film releases to cover the costs of keeping screens lit. Until the lockdowns and restrictions needed to control the coronavirus are gone, the situation will not improve. When will that be? Another six months of empty theatres for Cineworld does not sound implausible.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Cineworld’s management and its auditors are concerned and, raising more debt or issuing more equity to stay afloat is likely. If Cineworld survives the coronavirus crisis, things might still be challenging. Straight to the small screen productions used to be tagged as inferior. Things have changed now. I would not be surprised to see big-budget releases hitting the small screen not long after, or even at the same time, as they hit the big screen in the future. This weakens the appeal of going to the cinema. Even though Cineworld’s share price is 29p, well below its all-time high of around 300p, I would not buy.SumoShares in video games developer Sumo currently trade nearly 30% above their pre-crash high of 205p. But I still think they are worth buying. The gaming industry got a boost from the coronavirus crisis. People were stuck for things to do at home and turned to games for entertainment. Sumo was able to increase its revenues and profits from £21m and £0.74m in the first half of 2019 to £26m and £3.09m in 2020.Unlike Cineworld, Sumo’s balance sheet is light on debt and looks healthy. It raised equity in July year, but at a high share price and to fund growth, not keep it afloat. Sumo has reported that it did not and does not expect to use any furloughing arrangements or other government Covid-19 support measures. Smartphones and tablets have brought gaming to the masses. It is no longer the preserve of kids and a niche pastime for adults. Other platforms, like consoles and PCs, have benefited from the rise in mobile gaming. The coronavirus outbreak has only improved the popularity of mobile and dedicated console and PC gaming.Sumo has exposure to mobile gaming, but also games made for consoles. It does make a lot of money from providing services to other game developers but also makes its own games. The acquisition of two developers this year has boosted Sumo’s games development portfolio. Sumo is hitching a ride on the gaming industries continuing growth, which will continue with and without the spectre of the coronavirus. I would buy shares in Sumo.center_img I’m not tempted by the Cineworld share price and would buy Sumo stock instead “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Foto de Dylan Martínez /Reuters[Episcopal News Service] La noticia, el 9 de noviembre, de que al Rvdmo. Justin Welby lo nombraban como el próximo arzobispo de Cantórbery ha generado reacciones desde muchos rincones de la Comunión Anglicana, el organismo mundial de 38 provincias a cuya dirección espiritual ha sido llamado el obispo de Durham, Inglaterra, y ex ejecutivo de la industria petrolera.Durante una conferencia de prensa en el Palacio de Lambeth [el mismo] 9 de noviembre, Welby dijo a los medios de información que quería que la Iglesia fuese un lugar donde las personas pudieran discrepar en amor y que él era adverso al lenguaje de la exclusión.Dijo también, como activo usuario de Twitter, que tenía la intención de seguir valiéndose de las redes sociales como medios de comunicación.Como el 105º. Arzobispo, en una sucesión que se extiende por más de 1400 años, Welby asumirá el papel multifacético de líder espiritual de la Comunión Anglicana, Primado de toda Inglaterra y obispo de la Diócesis de Cantórbery, a partir de su entronización el 21 de marzo de 2013.Muchos episcopales han recibido la noticia con agrado, y han expresado su entusiasmo por el nombramiento de Welby, así como su gratitud por el liderazgo del actual arzobispo de Cantórbery durante los últimos 10 años.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori dijo estar “encantada” con la noticia, y añadió que Welby “aporta el conocimiento de los inmensos desafíos del mundo en que la Comunión anglicana procura actuar en el servicio de la misión restauradora y reconciliadora de Dios”.Welby tiene experiencia de las iglesias en varias partes de la Comunión Anglicana, “lo cual le resultará útil”, dijo Jefferts Schori, que regresó recientemente de Nueva Zelanda de participar en una reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, el principal organismo que diseña los planes de acción de la Comunión.“Doy gracias por este nombramiento y por su disposición a aceptar este trabajo, en el cual sus dones de reconciliación y discernimiento quedarán sobradamente demostrados”, y agregó: “Que Dios bendiga su ministerio, proteja a su familia y le brinde consuelo en medio de los difíciles criterios y decisiones que ha de tomar a solas”.La Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados, quien también representó a la Iglesia Episcopal en la reunión del CCA, dijo a ENS que ella salía de todas las reuniones internacionales de anglicanos a las que había asistido con la misma convicción: en su mayoría, las personas en la Comunión Anglicana estaban deseosas “de trabajar juntas por la causa del evangelio, independientemente de nuestras diferencias sobre aspectos teológicos específicos.“Necesitamos un arzobispo de Cantórbery que quiera facilitar esa cooperación y que aliente las alianzas que aún están por nacer”.Welby “es tenido en gran estima” por los episcopales que lo conocen bien, dijo Jennings.“Como árbitro de conflictos, ha demostrado extraordinario valor y un talento inusual en persuadir a personas, con diferencias mucho mayores de las que se dan dentro de la Comunión Anglicana, a trabajar juntas y a reconciliarse”, añadió. “Esto me da esperanzas de que sea la persona adecuada para este momento difícil en la historia de la Comunión Anglicana”.Citan el mérito de su variada experienciaLos obispos de la Iglesia de Inglaterra son nombrados en lugar de ser electos, [mediante un proceso] en el cual los 16 miembros de la Comisión de Nominaciones de la Corona somete dos nombres —un candidato favorito y un segundo candidato— a la oficina del Primer Ministro del Reino Unido, quien luego busca la aprobación del monarca británico, que es el supremo gobernador de la Iglesia de Inglaterra.Antes de su ordenación al presbiterado en 1992, Welby estudio derecho e historia en la Universidad de Cambridge y luego pasó 11 años como ejecutivo de la industria petrolera. Después de una década en el ministerio parroquial, fue nombrado canónigo residente, y más tarde subdeán de la catedral de Coventry. Fue deán de la catedral de Liverpool de 2007 a 2011.Como obispo de Durham, la cuarta sede en orden jerárquico de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, a la cual fue consagrado en octubre de 2011, Welby accedió automáticamente a un escaño en la Cámara de los Lores.El obispo Pierre Whalon, de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, calificó el nombramiento de “acertado”, y citó la “amplia y variada experiencia [de Welby] que le será de utilidad como arzobispo de Cantórbery, tanto dentro de la Iglesia de Inglaterra como en el ámbito mayor de la Comunión Anglicana”.Welby “asumirá un acercamiento imparcial a las provincias de la Comunión”, dijo Whalon a ENS.Aportará también nuevas destrezas útiles al cargo, dijo el Rdo. Marek Zabriskie, rector de la iglesia episcopal de Santo Tomás [St. Thomas’] en Fort Washington, Pensilvania.“Debido a su experiencia como un exitoso empresario de la industria petrolera, creo que él aportará destrezas nuevas al papel del arzobispo de Cantórbery, incluida la planificación estratégica”, le dijo él a ENS. “Esto es algo que se necesita con urgencia en la Iglesia de Inglaterra y en la Comunión Anglicana, y es algo que pocos, si es que algunos, de sus predecesores han llevado antes a la Sede de Cantórbery”.Zabriskie se reunió con Welby durante una reciente visita al Reino Unido como parte de una gira para promover y crear conciencia del Desafío de la Biblia, una iniciativa que alienta y facilita la lectura de toda la Biblia en un año.“El obispo Welby cree firmemente en la lectura regular de la Biblia”, dijo Zabriskie,  “ya que fue así que él tuvo su propia experiencia de fe tarde en la vida: a través de la lectura de las Escrituras y asistiendo a la iglesia de la Santa Trinidad, en Brompton”, el lugar de nacimiento del Curso Alfa, que busca ofrecerle a las personas una medio para explorar la fe cristiana más profundamente.Si bien Welby “se inclina hacia el lado evangélico de la Iglesia,” dijo Zabriskie, el arzobispo designado “parece llevar la designación con mesura, de manera que no lo encasillen, ni en la Iglesia de Inglaterra ni en la Comunión Anglicana, como miembro de sólo una rama particular de la Iglesia más grande”.Cuando Zabriskie le preguntó a  Welby acerca de su candidatura y de que estaba siendo tomado en cuenta para el puesto, respondió: “Es un trabajo difícil… Me apena el hombre que tenga que echarse encima esa responsabilidad. Exigirá muchísima oración y enormes esfuerzos asumir ese papel”.La Rda. Lee Alison Crawford, canóniga misionera de la Iglesia Anglicana Episcopal de El Salvador y ex miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo que ella esperaba que Welby continuara el compromiso de Williams, su predecesor, de abordar los problemas de justicia social y económica.“El arzobispo Williams reconoció que el compromiso en los dominios de lo social y lo político complementa el imperativo del evangelio de vestir al desnudo, alimentar al hambriento, curar al enfermo, visitar al preso y liberar a los cautivos”, dijo a ENS Crawford, sacerdote episcopal con sede en Vermont. “¡Ojalá que el obispo Welby continúe su obra de reconciliación, llevando todas las voces a la mesa para los diálogos difíciles pero esenciales que la Comunión Anglicana debe tener sobre eclesiología, misión, proclamación del evangelio y un mundo cambiante, y cómo esos cambios afectan la comprensión de las personas de lo que significa ser humano y cómo todos estamos interconectados y somos interdependientes”.Crawford dijo que ella espera que Welby alentará a la Comunión Anglicana “a asumir algunos riesgos y a trascender el status quo.“Ruego que el pueda juntar las muchas facetas de la Comunión Anglicana —un organismo rico, diverso y unificado, pero no uniforme— a través de su proclamación del mensaje evangélico del amor para todos de Cristo”.En marzo de 2012, Welby asistió a la reunión de la Cámara de Obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal como invitado internacional. En sus palabras en la clausura de la reunión, dijo que las conversaciones de Indaba en que los obispos habían participado a lo largo de la reunión facilitaron la generosidad y la claridad y que él se iba de la reunión con “una comprensión más profunda de contextos y realidades diferentes”.Después de haberse reunido con Welby y de haber compartido con él un almuerzo durante esa reunión, el obispo Ed Little, de Indiana del Norte, dijo a ENS que el obispo lo había impresionado en varios niveles.“Él es muy perceptivo de los desafíos que enfrenta la Iglesia de Inglaterra y la Comunión Anglicana, y entiende bien tanto los problemas como la complejidad del conflicto”, dijo Little. “Al mismo tiempo, es muy agradable, con un magnífico sentido del humor y una auténtica calidez. Es un cristiano genuinamente comprometido, con una fe profunda y una mirada centelleante. Él será capaz, creo yo, de llegar a los elementos discrepantes dentro de su propia Iglesia y a través de la Comunión”.Ian Douglas, obispo de la Diócesis de Connecticut, que sirve en el CCA y es miembro del Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo que había encontrado que Welby era “un líder cristiano fiel y previsor dedicado a la misión reconciliadora de Dios.“Su variada experiencia le dará una amplia base a partir de la cual dirigir una Iglesia y una Comunión Anglicana cada vez más diversas y cambiantes en el siglo XXI”, apuntó. “Tengo muchos deseos de trabajar junto al obispo Welby en el Comité Permanente”.Daniel Martins, obispo de la Diócesis de Springfield, dijo que encontraba a Welby “inteligente, de una transparencia cautivadora, políticamente sagaz y con excelente ‘don de gentes’”.“Creo que sus instintos pastorales y administrativos lo convertirán en una bendición para la diócesis y la provincia de Cantórbery, y su capacidad para un trato efectivo con las personas le será de utilidad al asumir los desafíos monumentales que enfrenta la Comunión Anglicana”, dijo Martins —que entrevistó a Welby poco después de que éste participara de la reunión de la Cámara de Obispos— a ENS.Cuando Martins le preguntó como esperaba ser más conocido, por los titulares de los periódicos o de otra manera, Welby le respondió que su mayor ambición “sería no aparecer demasiado en los titulares, ya que dado el estado de la prensa británica eso probablemente significaría que he cometido alguna inmensa estupidez”.Pero si tuviera que aparecer en los titulares, dijo Welby, él esperaba que sería porque la Iglesia había crecido en número y en profundidad espiritual, por trabajar efectivamente con los que se encuentran en los márgenes de la sociedad, añadiendo que a él le gustaría ser conocido “como un obispo a quien le importa Dios y le importa la gente”.Luego del anuncio del 9 de noviembre, Welby declaró: “No creo que nadie pueda estar más sorprendido que yo del resultado de este proceso. Ha sido una experiencia el leer más acerca de mí de lo que yo mismo sabía. Ser nominado a Cantórbery es, al mismo tiempo, abrumador y asombroso. Es abrumador debido a aquellos a los que sigo y la responsabilidad que conlleva. Es asombroso porque es algo que nunca había esperado que ocurriera”.[El arzobispo] Williams dijo en unas declaraciones el 9 de noviembre que  estaba “encantado con el nombramiento… He tenido el privilegio de trabajar estrechamente con [Welby] en varias ocasiones y siempre he salido enriquecido y animado por la experiencia.“Tiene una extraordinaria gama de talentos y es persona de gentileza, paciencia, sabiduría y humor. Aportará a este cargo una rica experiencia pastoral y un agudo sentido de las prioridades internacionales, para la Iglesia y para el mundo. Le deseo —con Carolina y la familia— toda suerte de bendiciones, y espero que la Iglesia de Inglaterra y la Comunión Anglicana compartirán mi regocijo por este nombramiento y lo apoyarán con sus oraciones y su afecto”.Welby y su esposa, Caroline, tienen cinco hijos, entre 16 y 27 años de edad.Entre los mensajes que entraron a raudales de todas partes de la Comunión Anglicana a la noticia del nombramiento de Welby estaba una declaración del Rvdmo. David Chillingworth, primado de la Iglesia Episcopal Escocesa, en el que decía que Welby “aportaba a esta tarea una notable diversidad de dones —espirituales, relacionales e intelectuales— así como su variada experiencia vital”.Gratitud por el liderazgo de WilliamsWelby, de 56 años, sucederá a Williams, que abandonará su cargo a fines de año luego de servir como el 104º. arzobispo de Cantórbery desde febrero de 2003. Williams ha aceptado un nuevo cargo como director del Colegio de la Magdalena, en Cambridge, en el cual comenzará a partir de enero.Williams ha dirigido a la Comunión Anglicana a través de tiempos muy turbulentos, tratando de mantener unidos —a pesar de algunas diferencias teológicas y culturales profundas— a los anglicanos en más de 165 países.Durante los últimos 10 años, dijo Whalon, el Obispo Episcopal de Europa, ha llegado a considerar a Williams como un hermano.“El ministerio que él ha ejercido como arzobispo se verá en el futuro, creo yo, con una luz mucho más clara que en la actualidad, y sus contribuciones vitales a la vida y ministerio de la Comunión Anglicana y de la Iglesia de Inglaterra serán reconocidas”, dijo Whalon, quien está radicado en París y supervisa las congregaciones y ministerios de la Iglesia Episcopal en Francia, Bélgica Suiza, Alemania, Italia y Polonia.Williams, como primado de Toda Inglaterra, también dirige congregaciones de la Diócesis en Europa de la Iglesia de Inglaterra.“En nuestras iglesias en Europa hemos orado por él cada domingo, de manera que él se encamina hacia su nuevo ministerio con nuestros mejores deseos”, dijo Whalon.Jennings, la presidente de la Cámara de Diputados llamó a Williams “una persona de oración, profundamente fiel, que sirvió durante una época difícil en la vida de la Comunión”.Durante la reunión del CCA, Jennings dijo que “estaba particularmente impresionada por su pasión por la justicia y la paz y su profundo respeto por la dignidad de todo ser humano.“La Iglesia será bendecida por su continua reflexión teológica y por sus escritos en los próximos años”.De sus varios encuentros con Williams, el obispo Little, de Indiana, dijo que sobresale un recuerdo de los primeros días de la Conferencia de Lambeth 2008 que fueron dedicados a retiro en la Catedral de Cantórbery.“Por dos días los obispos tuvimos la catedral sólo para nosotros —sin turistas— y el arzobispo Rowan nos dirigió en un período de reflexión. Fue una experiencia maravillosamente enriquecedora: encontrar a Cristo, encontrarnos los unos a los otros, reflexionar sobre nuestros ministerios”, explicó Little. “Él ha traído al oficio arzobispal los dones de la enseñanza y el servicio pastoral en nombre del cuerpo de Cristo. En una época contenciosa, él ha luchado por la reconciliación, y se ha entregado incansablemente a ese ministerio. Su amor por Jesús y su devoción por la unidad de la Iglesia son dones por los cuales alabo a Dios”.Williams acaba de regresar de dos semanas en Nueva Zelanda, donde presidió su última reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano.Al preguntarle en una sesión informativa de prensa en la clausura de [la reunión] del CCA sobre las características necesarias del próximo arzobispo de Cantórbery, Williams citó al teólogo protestante suizo Karl Barth: “uno tiene que predicar con la Biblia en una mano y el periódico en la otra”.“Tienes que hacer constantemente referencias cruzadas, diciendo ‘¿cómo en la visión de la humanidad en comunidad que nos presenta la Biblia se localizan estos problemas de pobreza, privación y violencia y conflicto?’”, dijo Williams. “Y uno tiene que usar lo que lee en el periódico para inducir y dirigir las preguntas que le hace a la Biblia. De manera que yo creo que alguien que le guste leer la Biblia y que le guste leer el periódico tendría un buen comienzo”.Josephine Hicks, representante laica de la Iglesia Episcopal ante el CCA, dijo que el legado permanente de Williams sería “que la Comunión anglicana se mantuviera unida a pesar de las profundas divisiones que amenazaran dividirla durante la mayor parte del tiempo que él estuvo en el cargo”.Un legado igualmente importante, dijo ella, es el regreso de la Conferencia de Lambeth a su propósito original de consulta, culto, oración y desarrollo de relaciones” en lugar de [un organismo] para tomar decisiones políticamente motivadas. Estoy encantada de que la última reunión del CCA se centrara en los problemas de paz y justicia, de la Biblia en la vida de la Iglesia, de Indaba Continuo y la misión, más bien que en temas divisivos”.El obispo Douglas de Connecticut definió como “un increíble privilegio y un gozo” trabajar al lado de Williams en el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano y como miembro del Grupo Organizador de la Conferencia de Lambeth 2008.“Le doy gracias a Dios por la dádiva del arzobispo Rowan”, dijo. “Él ha dirigido la Comunión Anglicana y la Iglesia de Inglaterra desde un lugar de profunda oración, de profunda sabiduría y de espíritu generoso”.Bajo el liderazgo de Welby, dijo Hicks, ella espera que la Comunión Anglicana “continuará avanzando [en el camino de] la misión y el ministerio, sin ignorar las dificultades ni los temas divisivos, pero discutiéndolos de manera que nos ayuden a comprendernos mutuamente y a aprender los unos de los otros y a acercarse a un consenso más bien que a tomar decisiones con ganadores y perdedores —decisiones que marginarían a un ‘lado’ o a al otro”.La transición de Williams a Welby, apuntó Zabriskie, significa “reemplazar un teólogo liberal católico de primer orden, que posee una memoria casi fotográfica…con un evangélico, que llegó tarde a la fe cristiana, que es casi completamente desconocido como teólogo…y a quien se le conoce en primer lugar y sobre todo como administrador y pensador estratégico con una sólida comprensión de las finanzas y un don para la diplomacia y la reconciliación.“Sus dones podrían ser precisamente los que necesitamos en este momento, pero sólo el tiempo lo dirá.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

What we needed was a flexible solution that would allow us to author, present and publish content quickly and easily to a wide range of audiences. This is what Tridion provided.”The Amsterdam-based company’s Tridion R5 enables organisations to aggregate a common view on content from various sources and manage and deliver all content in multiple formats and languages to numerous websites, channels and online applications. Tridion clients include Deutsche Telecom, Heineken, Office for National Statistics, Open University, Unilever and VisitBritain.

Pole of Communist Renaissance in France presents solidarity message for Mumia Abu-Jamal to U.S. Embassy

first_imgJune 17 — The Pole of Communist Renaissance in France (PRCF) presented the following message last week in solidarity with U.S. political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal to the U.S. ambassador in Paris. Translation by John Catalinotto.Mumia Abu-JamalTotal solidarity with Mumia Abu-Jamal and with all anti-imperialist and anti-racist activists in the United States of America!Known as the “Voice of the voiceless” in Philadelphia, a tireless advocate for the poor, workers and discriminated minorities, U.S. journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal has been imprisoned for decades by Pennsylvania’s racist “justice” system.Unable to have him executed, the authorities sentenced Mumia to die in prison slowly without even providing him with the urgent medical care required by his state of health.The PRCF national conference held in Paris on June 1 and 2, 2019, unanimously reaffirmed its humanitarian and political solidarity with Mumia and expressed its admiration for the steadfast example of firmness, internationalist solidarity, indomitable courage and unwavering love of life that [Mumia] gives to everyone in the depths of their penitentiary.Unconditional freedom for Mumia, shame on the U.S. rulers who dare to use “human rights” to interfere in the affairs of other countries (Venezuela, Cuba, Iraq, Iran, Nicaragua, Syria, Afghanistan, Korean peninsula, etc.) while treating U.S. militants involved in the fight against imperialism in an inhuman way.By unanimous agreement at the national conference on June 2, 2019, signed by Pierre Pranchère, Chairman of the International Commission; Aymeric Monville, Secretary; Daniel Antonini, Assistant Secretary; and joined by Georges Gastaud, National Secretary of the PRCF, and Fadi Kassem, Deputy National Secretary.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The death of the last ruler will not result in escheat of the rights in favour of the government.Death will not affect the rights of shebaitship of the family over the deity and they will survive as per custom, ruled the Court. Powers of Ruler of Travancore delegated to Administrative CommitteeThe powers of the ‘Ruler of Travancore’ under Travancore Cochin Hindu Religious Institutions Act (TC Act) in the matter of the administration of the temple has been delegated to an Administrative Committee, as suggested by the family itself.The family suggested the following composition :a retired Indian Administrative Service Officer of the rank of Secretary to Government of Kerala (“the State Government”) to be nominated by the Trustee in consultation with Government of Kerala who shall be the Chairperson of the Committee;one member nominated by the trustee(Travancore family);one member nominated by the Government of Kerala;one member nominated by the Ministry of Culture, Government of India; andthe Chief Thantri of the temple.An Advisory Committee was also suggested with the following composition : A retired High Court Judge who shall be nominated by the Chief Justice of the Kerala High Court and who shall be the Chairperson of the Committee. One eminent person to be nominated by the Trustee; A reputed chartered Accountant to be nominated by the Chairperson in consultation with the Trustee.The Court noted that this composition was “quite balanced” and was not “loaded in favour or against the appellants(family)”, when compared to the scheme under the TC Act.”As against the administration contemplated by Chapter III of Part I of the TC Act in the hands of the Ruler of Travancore in absolute terms, the course now suggested by the appellants is quite balanced”, the Court observed.However, the Court suggested a modification – instead of IAS officer in the rank of Government Secretray to be nominated by the family, the Court said that the District Judge, Thiruvananthapuram should be the Chairperson of the Committee.”…the powers of “the Ruler of Travancore” under Section 18(2) of the TC Act shall stand delegated to the Administrative Committee while the Advisory Committee shall be deemed to be the Committee constituted in terms of Section 20 of the TC Act. It is made clear that all the members including the Chairpersons of the Administrative Committee and the Advisory Committee must be Hindus and fulfil the requirements in Section 2(aa) of the TC Act”, the Court ordered.The Court has directed the appellant to file an affidavit of undertaking regarding the delegation of powers to the Administrative Committee and accepting the modification of its composition. The affidavit of undertaking will be binding on the successors of the appellants, the Court clarified.The SC also approved the continuation of the interim committee headed by District Judge, Thiruvananthapuram to manage the affairs of the temple till the constitution of a new committee.Notably, the top court has not expressed anything on the opening of the contentious “B Kallara”(Vault B), and has left it to be decided by the committee.A bench led by Justice UU Lalit pronounced judgment in the appeals challenging a 2011 Kerala High Court judgment, which directed the Government to take over control of the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple, it’s assets and management. The High Court bench comprising of Justices C.N. Ramachandran Nair and K. Surendra Mohan had directed the Government to open all Kallaras (Vaults), make inventory of the entire articles and create a Museum and exhibit all the treasures of the Temple for the public, devotees and the tourists to view the same which could be arranged on payment basis in the Temple premises itself.”In our view, there is no purpose in keeping the treasures of the temple acquired by it in the course of several centuries as a mystery..”, the HC had observed. A bench comprising Justice Uday Umesh Lalit & Indu Malhotra had finally heard the appeals in April, last year.Senior advocate Gopal Subramanian was appointed as amicus curiae in the matter. Former CAG Vinod Rai was also appointed to audit the records including expenditures incurred for temple’s upkeep.  In 2011, the inventory revealed an extravagant wealth of approximately Rupees 1 lakh crores, in the form of jewellery, idols, etc, following the opening of five “kallaras”(vaults).The opening of B Kallara was however put on hold, following objections from the family that it will invite divine wrath.Functions of Administrative CommitteeThe court also said that the Administrative Committee and the Advisory Committee shall perform the following functions (a) Preserve all treasures and properties endowed to Sree Padmanabhaswamy and those belonging to the Temple. (b) Protect all tenanted properties and take appropriate measures to ensure reasonable returns from such tenanted properties. (c) Ensure that all rituals and religious practices are performed in accordance with the instructions and guidance of the Chief Thantri of the Temple and according to custom and traditions. In temporal matters, the Committees shall be guided by the advice given by the Chief Thanthri. The designation of the Chief Thanthri shall be done in accordance with the customs and traditions. (d) Shall take appropriate steps to return to the State the amounts expended by the State Government as catalogued in the Chart in paragraph No.44 hereinabove((Rs 11,70,11,000). (e) All the income accruing to the Temple, as well as the offerings made by the worshippers, shall be expended in the following manner: (i) To improve the facilities for the worshippers; and (ii) For such religious and charitable purposes as the Advisory Committee may deem appropriate; and (iii) In investments that will fetch reasonable returns and ensure that the properties of the Temple are completely safe and secure. (f) Recover and retrieve any property or funds of the Temple which have been put to misuse or have been in unauthorized occupation or misappropriated. (g) Shall order audit for the last 25 years as suggested by the learned Amicus Curiae. The audit shall be conducted by a firm of reputed Chartered Accountants. The Advisory Committee shall also consider what further steps need to be taken for the preservation of the Temple properties, both movable and immovable. (h) Take appropriate steps for conservation of the Temple and its precincts, as well as for improvement of all the facilities. (i) Shall consider whether Kallara B is to be opened for the purpose of inventorization. The interim orders dated 27.11.2014 and 04.07.2017 passed by this Court had recorded that Kallara B was not opened, and it was directed that inventorization with respect to said Kallara B be undertaken only after obtaining express orders from this Court. We deem it appropriate to leave this issue to the best judgement and discretion of the Committees. (j) Conduct all the obligations which from time to time were bestowed on various Committees by this Court including that of the Selection Committee for Sreekovil. (k) Shall file Reports in this Court by the second week of December, 2020 stating all the developments in brief till then. The next Report shall be filed after the accounts for the year ending 31.03.2021 are audited. (l) Shall file the audited accounts and the Balance Sheet with the office of the Accountant General for the State, every year.BackgroundAs per the instrument of accession between the princely state of Travancore & Cochin and the Government of India entered in 1949, the administration of the temple was vested with the “Ruler of Travancore”.Later, by operation of Section 18(2) of the Travancore Cochin Hindu Religious Institutions Act, the management of the temple continued to be vested in Trust in the last Ruler of Travancore. The last Ruler of Travancore, until his death on 20.7.1991 continued to manage the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple by virtue of powers conferred on him under Section 18(2) of the TC Act.Disputes Over Management Begins Even after the death of the last Ruler, the state allowed the management of the Padmanabha Swamy Temple to be taken over and retained by the Uthradam Thirunal Marthanda Varma, the brother of the last Ruler after the latter’s death. After Marthanda Varma made a claim that the treasures of the Padmanabha Swamy Temple are the family properties of the erstwhile Royal Family of Travancore, several devotees approached Civil Courts in Trivandrum filing Suits for declaration and for injunction to restrain the Travancore family members for diverting the temple properties.Proceedings Before the HC Uthradam Thirunal Marthanda Varma and some others approached the High Court in this matter. The court clubbed the cases together and considered the issue whether the younger brother of the last Ruler of Travancore could after the death of the last Ruler on 20.7.1991 claim to be the “Ruler of Travancore” within the meaning of that term contained in Section 18(2) of the Travancore-Cochin Hindu Religious Institutions Act, 1950 to claim ownership, control and management of the ancient and great Temple in Kerala namely, the Sree Padmanabha Swamy Temple located at Trivandrum. “Ruler” is not a status that could be acquired through succession, HC held Answering this issue against Uthradam Thirunal Marthanda Varma , the Court held that the “Ruler” is not a status that could be acquired through succession and therefore, after death of the last Ruler on 20.7.1991, there is no Ruler in the erstwhile State of Travancore. It further held that Uthradam Thirunal Marthanda Varma cannot step into the shoes of the last Ruler to claim management of the Sree Padmanabhaswamy Temple by relying on the powers conferred under Section 18(2) of the TC Act.Supreme Court Proceedings : Timeline02/05/2011: The SLP filed by Uthradam Thirunal Marthanda Varma first came up before the bench comprising of RV Raveendran and AK Patnaik which granted interim stay of the High Court directives. The court also directed to conduct a detailed inventory of the articles/valuables/ornaments in Kallaras and also appointed a team of observers.08/07/2011: The Court ordered that opening of kallara ‘A’ and’B’ is to be kept in abeyance till further orders.21/07/2011: After considering the state’s response in this matter, the bench directed to constitute the following Expert Committee to advise regarding inventory, conservation and security. The committee was also directed to examine and give an opinion whether it is necessary to open Kallara ‘B’.22/09/2011: The Court examined the interim report of the Expert Committee and issued further directions. The court also said that the issue relating to opening of Kallara ‘B’ shall be considered after substantial progress is made in regard to documentation, categorization, security, preservation, conservation, maintenance and storage relating to the contents in the other Kallaras.23/08/2012: The Court appointed Sr. Adv Gopal Subramaniam, to act as amicus curiae in the matter.6/12/2013: Uthradam Thirunal Marthanda Varma passed away.15.04.2014: The Amicus Curiae submits his report.24/04/2014: The Court appointed Administrative Committee headed by the District Judge, Thiruvananthapuram, to manage the temple.August-September 2014- Sr. Adv Gopal Subramaniam writes a letter to the Supreme Court in which he said he has opted out as amicus curiae in the Padmanabha Swamy temple case.
