The International Fund refuses to support Sudan




A senior IMF official said the foundation continues to provide technical and political support to Sudan but can not provide additional funding because of arrears.

The transitional military junta in Sudan is in talks with opposition groups on forming a joint body to lead the transition, after the removal of 30-year-old President Omar al-Bashir.

The director of the Middle East and Central Asia Department, Jihad Azour, told Reuters that the council had not been in contact with the International Monetary Fund over the country's debts, but the fund continued to deal with the Sudanese authorities after the political turmoil.

"We are communicating with Sudan and providing them with technical assistance and political support," Azour said.

"We can not provide them with funding because they are still in arrears, and until they address the problem of arrears, we can not provide them with additional lending under our regulations," he said.

Protests against the al-Bashir regime began late last year mainly for economic reasons, with rampant unemployment, high inflation and the inability of citizens to meet their needs, and then the ceiling of demands to overthrow the president and symbols of his regime.

Winner of the largest lottery ticket "mismanagement of wealth"




A 90-year-old US lottery winner sued her son and financial advisers for mismanaging her wealth.

Gloria McKenzie became the biggest winner of the Powerball lottery in US history when she earned $ 278 million six years ago.

McKinsey, who lives in Florida, claims the funds have been invested in useless ventures, leading to millions of dollars in losses.

Her son, Scott McKenzie, says the case is unjustified.

McKenzie was 84 when she won $ 590.5 million in 2013. But she chose to take the money once and got $ 278 million after taxes.

McKinsey says she gave half of the prize to her son, who promised to look after her for the rest of her life.

Due to her lack of experience managing large sums of money, her son gave her legal power to manage her finances.

In a lawsuit filed last month in Jacksonville, McKinsey alleges that her son and financial advisers invested her money in low-yield projects that cost her tens of millions of dollars if she managed the money well.

The fee for the lawsuit was $ 2 million.

Her son says there is no basis for these legal procedures.

"The claims are based solely on allegations that his mother provided an investment adviser, who in turn invested her money in conservative investment portfolios, according to the investment goals she chose, which in turn kept her wealth.

The youngest US Democrat Alexandra Ocaci



The youngest Democrat in the US Congress, Alexandra Ocacio Cortez, said her country should consider cutting off military and economic aid to Israel because of its policies, which prompted a response from the Jewish lobby in the United States.

In a radio interview published on Yahoo, the 29-year-old critic criticized Netanyahu's re-election as prime minister in Israel, saying it was "part of the rise of authoritarianism in some parts of the world."

She described Netanyahu as a tramp-like figure, especially after he announced earlier this April the study of annexing settlements in the occupied West Bank to Israel.

When asked about the impact of Netanyahu's recent move on US policy towards Israel, the New York State MP said: "There are several ways to deal with it, including cutting off military and economic aid from Israel," the New York Post reported.

"I think cutting off aid can be put to the table," she said. "These are part of the discussions we are having in our community."

The United States provides about $ 3 billion a year in aid to Israel, including military and economic aid.

Cortez expressed her support for a bill introduced by Democratic Rep. Of Minnesota, Betty McCollum, prohibiting the use of US military and financial aid to Israel in the detention of Palestinian children in the West Bank.

Commenting on her remarks, the US Jewish Congress on Monday issued a statement in which he expressed displeasure with Cortez's remarks, but did not condemn her.

The MP called for contact with Democratic leaders in the US Congress before discussing US aid to Israel.

The Council stressed that Israeli-US ties must transcend policies.
