The right point when canceling due to COVID-19

first_imgDue to various questions and interpretations about passenger rights in case of cancellation due to COVID-19, we bring an overview of passenger rights at the national level for all types of tourist services in case of cancellation due to COVID-19. According to Article 37, paragraph 6 of the said Act, the passenger has the right to terminate the contract of travel in a package before the start of the package without paying any fee for termination of the contract in case of unavoidable extraordinary circumstances that occurred at the destination or in its immediate vicinity and which significantly affect the fulfillment of the package arrangement or which significantly affect the transport of passengers to the destination. Act on the Provision of Services in Tourism (Official Gazette, nos. 130/17, 25/19 and 98/19), which transposed into the Croatian legal system Directive (EU) 2015/2302 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 on travel in package arrangements and related travel arrangements, regulates the termination of the contract on travel in a package arrangement in extraordinary circumstances. Review of passenger rights in case of cancellations in exceptional circumstances or any restrictions for travel at EU level related to COVID-19: Frequently asked questions about cancellations of individually booked accommodation, car rentals and events due to the COVID-19 pandemic With special attention to the changes not covered by this document, ie the provisions of the Act related to the cancellation of travel in package arrangements and the moratorium on return to passengers with the issuance of vouchers which entered into force on 7.4.2020. 15.4.2020/XNUMX/XNUMX: center_img DECISION ON PROMULGATION OF THE LAW ON AMENDMENTS TO THE LAW ON PROVISION OF TOURISM SERVICES RULEBOOK ON THE MANNER OF USING VOUCHERS FOR UNFINISHED TRAVEL CONTRACTS IN A PACKAGE An “emergency” would be a situation beyond the control of the party invoking it, and its consequences could not have been avoided even if all the necessary measures had been taken. Significant risks to human health, such as the outbreak of a serious disease such as COVID-19 at or near the destination, would generally be considered such an emergency, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports said in a document. “Review of passenger rights in the event of a COVID-19 pandemic”last_img read more

Stefanik’s office was helpful on benefits

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion We were having issues with one of us obtaining Part “B” of Medicare. It’s too long of a story to go through all of the details. However after many, and we mean many, months of phone calls and several faxes sent to many locations, we were getting nowhere and over a year had passed. This is when we contacted Rep. Elise Stefanik’s office and asked for help.Her staff was great right from the first phone call. They returned calls and kept us advised all the way back through the process. We don’t know how they did it, but within a short period, we were receiving phone calls from Medicare. And within a very short time, Jan received the benefits that should have been in place over a year past due. We are grateful for Elise and her staff for showing what a true leader can do. Thank you once again, Rep. Elise Stefanik. We couldn’t have done it without you.Jan HarrisFred HarrisBallston SpaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesGuilderland girls’ soccer team hands BH-BL first league lossEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation In times when it’s so easy to criticize our elected officials and question what they do, I’m a firm believer to give credit where credit is due. last_img read more

PREMIUM‘Don’t blame the movies’ experts say amid public speculation over toddler’s murder

first_imgLog in with your social account Topics : LOG INDon’t have an account? Register here Forgot Password ? Google Facebook The recent murder of a toddler that was allegedly committed by a teenaged neighbor has sparked public speculation as to whether horror movies had played a part in the teen’s behavior, but experts advise caution over the theory.Watching movies or TV shows that feature murder, violence or other forms of abuse would not cause children to commit acts of juvenile delinquency, said Retno Listyarti of the Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI). She cautioned, however, that they could attempt to imitate scenes showing such acts without parental supervision.“Movies or TV shows should not be solely blamed when children commit juvenile delinquency, because parents can deter them from [such acts] by monitoring their viewing [habits],” Retno told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.She also pointed out that parents should teach t… Linkedin murder murder-case Jakarta-police Central-Jakarta West-Jakarta mental-healthlast_img read more

China’s imported cases rise as foreigners banned and flights cut

first_imgChina reported more than 50 imported cases of the coronavirus on Friday, hours after announcing a ban on foreigners entering the country.In recent weeks China’s tally of infections has dwindled dramatically, with only a handful of domestic patients each day. But just as the country appears to bring the outbreak under control, nations around the globe have been battling to control soaring numbers of infections in new hotspots.There were another 55 new infections in China Friday, the National Health Commission said, with one local infection and 54 imported cases from overseas. Topics : Beijing has been racing to control the number of infections being brought into the country — mostly Chinese nationals returning home from overseas, including large numbers of students abroad.On Thursday Beijing announced dramatic measures to curb arrivals into the country, including reducing the number of international flights, limiting the capacity on board to 75 percent, and imposing a ban on foreigners entering China.Non-nationals living in China with valid visas and resident permits will be blocked from returning to the country after midnight on Friday night, the foreign ministry said in a statement. The ministry said it was a “temporary measure that China is compelled to take in light of the outbreak situation.”center_img Diplomats and the crew of international airlines and vessels will still be permitted to enter.Flights in and out of China will also be capped at just one route a week to each country, including for international airlines.The tally of cases brought into China from abroad climbed to 595 on Friday, health officials said.A series of strict measures had already been put in place to try and stem the wave of infections coming in.All Beijing-bound international flights have been diverted to other urban centers, where passengers will first be screened for the virus.Many Chinese cities including Beijing and Shanghai have also imposed a compulsory 14-day quarantine for all arrivals from abroad. There were nearly 1,100 return international passenger flights scheduled to come to China this week.There were another five deaths on Friday, according to the National Health Commission — all in the province of Hubei where the virus first emerged late last year.In total 81,340 people have been infected in China, and the outbreak has claimed 3,292 lives.last_img read more

Foreign worker killed, two others severely injured in Freeport shooting

first_imgTwo of Wall’s colleagues, identified as Jibril Wahar and Yosephine, were admitted to Tembagapura Hospital with serious injuries, Riza said. Four other people sustained minor injuries and were treated in the office.Local authorities and Freeport security officers have secured the location and evacuated all workers and residents near the vicinity following the attack.Freeport management has issued an incident notification alert asking workers to postpone all activities and find shelter following the shooting.“We will provide further information when there are reports of new developments from this incident,” Riza said. A foreign employee of gold and copper mining company PT Freeport Indonesia was shot dead on Monday by gunmen in Timika, the capital city of Mimika regency in Papua.The employee, identified as Graeme Thomas Wall, was engaged in construction work with colleagues on the company site in Kuala Kencana district when the shooting took place on Monday afternoon, Freeport Indonesia spokesperson Riza Pratama said.“The shooting happened on Monday, March 30, at around 2 p.m. local time. We express our deep condolences for one of our workers who was killed in the shooting at the office complex of Freeport Indonesia,” Riza told The Jakarta Post on Monday. Papua Police chief Paulus Waterpauw alleged that the perpetrators who launched the attack were under the command of Joni Botak, the leader of an armed gang operating in the Timika area, and who is also on the police’s most-wanted list.“The group is now being hunted by our joint team,” Waterpauw said.Separatist group West Papua National Liberation Army (TPNPB), however, claimed responsibility for the shooting.“Our battlefield is at the Freeport and Grassberg mining sites. Kuala Kencana is also a war zone. We will not stop until Freeport closes down, so they better close at once,” TPNPB Timika operational commander Hengky Wamang told the Post.Papua has been the hotbed of separatism for years and armed groups, which authorities say operate in several regencies in the province, are reported to have been behind numerous violent incidents in the region.Earlier this month, the police said some 790 people fled their homes in mountainous areas around the Freeport mining site on March 7 to take refuge at the Tembagapura Police headquarters in Timika over fears of an armed criminal group, which had reportedly terrorized the villagers.Security authorities previously reported that armed groups had been shooting at Indonesian Military (TNI) and police guard posts. The residents’ access to basic needs, such as food and health care, had reportedly been restricted by armed men who blocked roads.Authorities also claimed that the local residents were still traumatized from their previous encounter with the armed group in November 2017, when its members blocked access into and out of several villages.
