Workers re-open Kellogg factory closed by company in crisis-hit Venezuela

Workers re-open Kellogg factory closed by company in crisis-hit Venezuelaby Virginia Pietromarchi and Agencies  Venezuelan authorities said they handed a Kellogg Co plant to workers and reactivated production at the factory yesterday, a day after the US cereal producer pulled out of the crisis-hit country. Kellogg joined a host of other multinationals in exiting Venezuela and later confirmed President Nicolas Maduro's leftist government had taken over its manufacturing plant. On Wednesday, Aragua state Governor Marco Torres slammed Kellogg and guaranteed food production would continue. "With no notification, this US-based multinational decided to close its doors, leaving 570 workers hanging," said Mr Torres at the plant, in Maracay. "Yet, we're here – in less than 24 hours." Millions in Venezuela suffer food and medicine shortages amid hyperinflation. Mr Maduro blames Venezuela's crisis on an "economic war" that he says is being waged by Washington, greedy businessmen and coup-mongers.  He is expected to win Sunday's presidential election, described by the opposition as a sham – who also put the blame for the economic crisis squarely at Mr Maduro's door, citing corruption and mismanagement.  Clorox, Kimberly-Clark, General Mills , General Motors and Harvest Natural Resources are the most recent big names to pull out of Venezuela in the face of economic conditions. Opposition critics scoffed that the government would quickly plunder the Kellogg plant and ruin its business. Kellogg  hasn't given more detailed information on the difficulties it was facing, but companies have been struggling to find raw materials and cope with their production expenses in Venezuela, as the government does not allow companies to raise prices in order to cope with the country's hyperinflation problem.  “The current economic and social deterioration in the country has now prompted the company to discontinue operations," Kellogg said.  President Nicolas Maduro used a campaign rally to call the action " absolutely unconstitutional and illegal" and said the workers would take over so that “they can continue producing for the people." During a speech in the state of Carabobo on Tuesday, Mr Maduro also stated that he had already begun judicial proceedings against the firm's business leader. While the Texas-based company said it hoped to return to Venezuela in future, it also warned of legal action if its product is sold there in the meantime.  “Kellogg is not responsible for the unauthorised use of the commercial names and brands that are the property of the company and will exercise legal actions available as necessary," the company said.

Statue of Liberty to reopen; shutdown keeps other parks, monuments closedBy Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) – The Statue of Liberty will reopen on Monday even if the U.S. government shutdown extends into the work week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Sunday, vowing to use state funds to keep the landmark monument in operation. Dozens of other national parks and monuments were expected to remain partially or entirely closed after Congress failed to agree on a spending plan to keep the government running past a Friday midnight deadline. “Not all parks are fully open but we are all working hard to make as many areas as accessible to the public as possible,” U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said on Twitter on Saturday.

Saudi Ritz Carlton to reopen after being used as luxury prison in corruption purge

Saudi Ritz Carlton to reopen after being used as luxury prison in corruption purgeThe luxury Riyadh hotel used as a prison during Saudi Arabia's crackdown on corruption will reopen for business next month, suggesting authorities are close to settling the cases of many suspects. Dozens of princes, senior officials and top businessmen were detained and confined in the five-star Ritz-Carlton Riyadh as the government launched the purge in early November. The some 200 detainees occupied half the hotel's 492 rooms. The rest was closed to business. The hotel's website now accepts bookings from Feb. 14, quoting a nightly rate for its cheapest room of 2,439 riyals (£480). Saudi authorities have said they expect the vast majority of suspects to agree to financial settlements of charges against them, and that Riyadh hopes to recover about $ 100 billion of illicit funds. A small number are expected to be prosecuted. Construction giant Saudi Binladin Group said on Saturday that some of its shareholders might transfer part of their holdings to the state in a settlement with authorities. Chairman Bakr Bin Laden and several family members were detained in the crackdown. In late November, senior Saudi Prince Miteb bin Abdullah, once seen as a leading contender to the throne, was freed after reaching a settlement with authorities that involved paying more than $ 1 billion, according to a Saudi official. Another top businessman who has been held at the Ritz-Carlton is billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, chairman and owner of global investment firm Kingdom Holding. A Saudi official said this week that he was negotiating a possible settlement but so far had not agreed on terms. It has been rumoured, Mr Talal, one of the world’s richest men, could be forced to pay as much as $ 7bn. Saudi Arabia is in the midst of a massive political and economic shake-up, marked by the sudden appointment of Prince Mohammed bin Salman as crown prince in June. The 32-year-old son of the king has spearheaded the unprecedented crackdown on corruption among members of the government and royal family, as he consolidates his grip on power in the kingdom.
