Business - Ex-Im internal watchdog finds no proof of systemic corruption


There is currently no evidence of widespread fraud within the U.S. Export-Import Bank, its internal watchdog said, as critics of the bank flagged a wider probe of corruption claims. Three Ex-Im employees have been dismissed and another suspended amid investigations into allegations of gifts and kickbacks, cases which could lead to criminal charges and have given ammunition to conservative lawmakers seeking the bank`s closure. `At this time, we have not developed evidence of widespread employee misconduct or systemic employee involvement in fraud schemes at the bank,` Acting Inspector General Michael McCarthy wrote in a July 28 letter to Democrat Matthew Cartwright, which was presented during a Congressional panel hearing. `These investigations are ongoing.` Ex-Im Chairman Fred Hochberg told the hearing he had not heard of any other cases of employee corruption during his time at the bank, which he joined in 2009.

World - London mulls pollution charge on diesel vehicles


London may introduce a charge on polluting diesel vehicles that enter the centre of the British capital, in a bid to meet EU rules, mayor Boris Johnson said on Tuesday. The fee would be on the lines of the `congestion charge` for all vehicles entering central London, which is currently £11.50 a day ($19.50, 14.50 euros), a spokesman said. The plan is part of a new Brussels-compliant Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) being introduced in London from 2020, which Conservative Johnson announced last year. `We`ve got a big air quality problem in London, like many other big cities around the world, we`ve got people dying prematurely, we`re in breach of European guidelines.`

World - London`s famed `Gherkin` on sale for £650 mn


London`s landmark `Gherkin` office tower, one of the landmarks on the British capital`s skyline, went on sale for about £650 million ($1.1 billion, 820 million euros) on Tuesday after being placed into receivership. Property firms Savills and Deloitte Real Estate were jointly instructed to sell the 41-storey block in the city`s financial district. The building looks like a glass gherkin, rising out of the City of London financial district. This was after lenders to the current owners -- German property firm IVG Immobilien -- became frustrated at its attempts to restructure debt.

World - Gaza conflict to dent, not break Israel economy


By Steven Scheer JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel`s war against Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip is expected to cost it billions of dollars, temporarily hurt economic growth and put pressure on the government`s finances. Analysts and officials compare the current operation to a one-month war between Israel and Hizbollah guerrillas in Lebanon in the summer of 2006, as well as to conflicts in Gaza in 2009 and 2012, when the economy took a hit but bounced back quickly, except for tourism. The central bank reckons the fighting, provided it remains contained to Gaza, may knock at most half a percentage point of this year`s economic growth. `There will be a cost but nothing disastrous,` said economic and financial consultant Barry Topf, an adviser to former Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer.
