Trenton gives $105K contract to former law director’s firm





TRENTON >> David Minchello apparently can’t separate himself from Trenton.

The city’s former law director has stayed connected to Trenton by employment or through law firms since Mayor Eric Jackson assumed office in July 2014.

On Thursday, city council approved two contracts for Minchello’s newly formed law firm, Rainone Coughlin & Minchello, totaling $105,000. The firm is politically connected as one of the law firm’s partners is Assemblyman Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex), who is rumored to be in the running for the next Assembly speaker.

Rainone Coughlin & Minchello received a $75,000 contract for legal services regarding labor matters and $30,000 to perform legal work for employment matters.

Minchello was an early supporter of Jackson’s bid for mayor. In May 2013, Minchello’s former firm, Antonelli Minchello, donated $2,000 to Jackson’s campaign.

After winning the mayoral race, Jackson appointed Minchello as law director. Minchello stayed in the role for a year but he also was named a partner with DeCotiis, FitzPatrick & Cole, which had an active contract with the city, four months before he resigned.

Minchello was named a partner of the firm in March 2015 after he received the blessing from Jackson, who reportedly secured approval from the state.

In April 2015, Jackson appeared before council declaring the city would end its $80,000 contract with DeCotiis due to the then-law director’s ties with the Teaneck-based law firm.

But that never occurred.

DeCotiis has remained a contracted firm with the city. The law firm was also given a $50,000 contract for general municipal and other legal matters on Thursday.

Minchello and several other DeCotiis members left the firm to form Rainone Coughlin & Minchello earlier this year.

The city’s former law director also had another connection to another contract that was approved by city council on Thursday.

City council approved a $50,000 legal services contract to the law firm of Antonelli Kantor. Daniel Antonelli was Minchello’s former law firm partner when the company contributed $2,000 to Jackson’s campaign in 2013.

Antonelli also became a partner at DeCotiis the same month as Minchello. Antonelli formed his new firm in March.

With the latest round of legal services contracts, it appears the city is rewarding those who are connected to Minchello.

iBhushan, Essar Steel among 12 firms listed

India’s central bank has asked lenders to initiate bankruptcy proceedings against a dozen companies, including Essar Steel, Bhushan Steel Ltd., Monnet Ispat and Energy Ltd., sources with direct knowledge of the matter said.

This follows a change enacted in laws last month that gives the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) greater power to address the $150 billion stressed loan problem plaguing growth in Asia’s third-largest economy.

This week, the RBI said it had identified 12 of the country’s biggest loan defaulters.

Jaypee Infratech, Electrosteel Steels, unlisted Bhushan Power & Steel, textiles maker Alok Industries, ABG Shipyard and Jyoti Structures are also among the firms that will be taken to insolvency courts by the RBI, said the sources, who asked not to be named as the list was not public.

A fourth of bad loans

The RBI has yet to officially name any of the 12 companies, which account for about ₹2 trillion ($31 billion) of India’s non-performing loans, or roughly 25% of all the country’s bad loans.

CNBC TV18, which reported the 12 names earlier on Friday, also said Lanco Infratech, Amtek Auto and Era Infra Engineering were on the list.

Reuters could not immediately verify these three names.

According to the television station, the central bank has asked banks to initiate bankruptcy proceedings against six of the firms within 15 days and to file petitions for the others within 30 days.

The RBI had no official comment.

A spokesman for Essar Steel declined to comment, while a spokesman for Electrosteel said they had heard from their main lender that creditors wanted to initiate resolution of the unpaid loans through the National Company Law Tribunal.

The NCLT has been appointed as the nodal court for insolvency and bankruptcy proceedings in India.

A bankruptcy filing would result in recovering some funds owed through a debt restructuring, or ultimately through liquidation of the company. Such action means banks would no longer leave bad debt on their books and it could force them to put more money aside to cover losses — at a time when funds are already short as banks seek to comply with international capital standards.

The filings could have far reaching implications, as India’s new insolvency code sets out a tight deadline for restructuring resolutions to be struck, failing which the defaulters would be moved into forced liquidation, potentially leading to further value erosion and jeopardizing tens of thousands of jobs at the heavy industry companies on the list.

Lenders’ meetings

Indian banks typically lend larger sums in groups.

Lead banks plan to call meetings of the groups over the next two weeks to decide the next course of action, one source said.

Jaypee Infratech, Lanco, Bhushan Steel, Monnet, Bhushan Power & Steel, Jyoti, Era, Amtek, Alok and ABG were not immediately reachable for comments.

Germany threatens retaliation if U.S. sanctions harm its firms

By Gernot Heller and Alissa de Carbonnel
| BERLIN/BRUSSELS

BERLIN/BRUSSELS Germany threatened on Friday to retaliate against the United States if new sanctions on Russia being proposed by the U.S. Senate end up penalizing German firms.

The Senate bill, approved on Thursday by a margin of 98-2, includes new sanctions against Russia and Iran. Crucially, it foresees punitive measures against entities that provide material support to Russia in building energy export pipelines.

Berlin fears that could pave the way for fines against German and European firms involved in Nord Stream 2, a project to build a pipeline carrying Russian gas across the Baltic.

Among the European companies involved in the project are German oil and gas group Wintershall, German energy trading firm Uniper, Royal Dutch Shell, Austria’s OMV and France’s Engie.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman described the Senate bill, which must be approved by the House of Representatives and signed by President Donald Trump before it becomes law, as “a peculiar move”.

He said it was “strange” that sanctions intended to punish Russia for alleged interference in the U.S. elections could also trigger penalties against European companies.

“That must not happen,” said the spokesman, Steffen Seibert.

In an interview with Reuters, German Economy Minister Brigitte Zypries said Berlin would have to think about counter-measures if Trump backed the plan.

“If he does, we’ll have to consider what we are going to do against it,” Zypries said.

The sharp response from Berlin comes at a time of deep strains in the transatlantic relationship due to shifts in U.S. policy and a more confrontational rhetoric towards Europe under Trump.

The new U.S. president has lambasted European partners for not contributing more to NATO, slammed Germany for running a large trade surplus with the United States and broken with allies on climate change with his decision to exit the landmark Paris agreement on combating greenhouse gas emissions.

Ironically, the part of the Senate bill that targets Russia was introduced by some of the president’s top critics, including Republican hawk John McCain.

They are intent on limiting Trump’s ability to forge warmer ties with Russia, a key foreign policy pledge during his campaign for the presidency, but one he has been unable to deliver on amid investigations into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

DIALOGUE BREAKS DOWN

Under Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama, Washington and Europe coordinated closely as they ramped up sanctions against Moscow for its 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region.

But the dialogue has broken down under Trump, who considered easing sanctions against Russia when he first came into office, according to U.S. officials.

“I regret that the joint approach of Europe and the United States on Russia and sanctions has been undermined and abandoned in this way,” Zypries told Reuters.

France and the European Commission also urged the United States to coordinate with its partners on such matters.

“For several years, we have underlined to the United States the difficulties that extraterritorial legislation spark,” a French foreign ministry spokesman told reporters.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline, due to start pumping gas from Russia to Europe from 2019, has been dogged by controversy.

Eastern European and Baltic states fear it will make them hostage to Russian gas and undercut Ukraine by depriving it of transit fees for Russian gas supplies to Europe.

Nordic nations, meanwhile, have security concerns over the pipeline running through territorial waters, where Russia has bolstered its military presence in recent months.

Some EU diplomats fear the threat of new measures out of Washington may harden Germany’s defense of Nord Stream and complicate already difficult talks among EU nations over whether to seek joint talks with Russia over the pipeline.

“This is not helpful now. It tends to stir up desires to protect our territorial space,” one EU diplomat said.

The House of Representatives is expected to debate the Senate bill in the coming weeks but it is unclear whether it will come up for a final vote before lawmakers leave Washington at the end of July for their summer recess.

Germany Threatens Retaliation If US Sanctions Harm Its Firms

Germany claims US harming EU firms with Russia sanctions

Berlin: Germany on Friday accused Washington of hurting European power companies through its new sanctions against Russia that target the planned Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Europe.

The new measures, approved by the US Senate on Thursday, include a threat to penalise companies that provide “goods, services, technology, information or support” for the construction of Russian energy export pipelines.

Berlin noted that this would directly impact European companies involved in the construction of the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline which would pump Russian gas under the Baltic Sea directly to Germany.

“It is strange that in the sanctioning of Russia’s behaviour, with regards to the US elections for instance, the European economy should become a target of American sanctions,” said Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert.

“That must not happen.”

He added that Merkel shared the concerns raised by German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel and Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern, who charged in a joint statement Thursday that the measure brings a “completely new and entirely negative quality to European-US relations”.

They also accused Washington of using the sanctions to squeeze Russian gas supplies out of Europe in favour of US energy exports.

Separately, France’s foreign ministry called on Washington to respect the need for coordination with its European allies before deciding new sanctions.

“For several years, we have stressed the difficulties that extra-territorial legislations could generate,” said a spokesman at the French foreign ministry, referring to measures that could have a spillover effect to countries besides the one directly sanctioned.

“On issues linked to security and European industrial policies, we hope that the United States respect necessary coordination, including within the framework of the G7.”

Russian energy giant Gazprom is building Nord Stream 2 in cooperation with Anglo-Dutch Shell, Germany’s Uniper and Wintershall, Austria’s OMV and France’s Engie.

The project bypassing conflict-torn Ukraine and also Poland would double the flow of the Nord Stream pipeline currently linking Germany and Russia.

But it has sparked criticism within the EU, with members including Italy and Poland accusing Germany of selfishly seeking a reliable energy supply route from President Vladimir Putin’s Russia while pressuring other countries to back sanctions against Moscow over the crisis in Ukraine.

Former US vice president Joe Biden has also called the planned pipeline a “fundamentally bad deal for Europe” as it locks in greater reliance on Russia.

But Germany’s Gabriel and Austria’s Kern said Washington’s intention was purely economic.

“The aim is to secure jobs in gas and oil industries in the US,” said Gabriel and Kern.

“Political sanctions should not be mixed up with economic interests,” they warned, stressing that “Europe’s energy supply is Europe’s business and not that of the United States”.

“We decide who delivers energy to us and how, according to rules of openness and economic competitiveness,” said Gabriel and Kern.

“We cannot accept the threat of extra-territorial sanctions against European companies that participate in the expansion of European energy supplies”, they said, adding that this would “violate international law”.

Gazprom’s vice president Alexander Medvedev also charged that the US had a vested interest in hurting the project.

“With regards to the introduction of sanctions, they don’t hide the fact that it’s an anti-competition tool to favour US gas deliveries in Europe,” he said according to Russian news agencies.

The US bill as originally introduced was exclusively about slapping new sanctions on Iran. But lawmakers attached a bipartisan amendment on Russia to it early this week.

The addition came with the White House deeply embroiled in crisis over whether Trump’s campaign team colluded with a Russian effort to sway the 2016 election.
