Holmatro says that the Antwerp-based Heavy Lifting & Handling is observing a rapid increase in the demand for the movement of industrial objects and installations of exceptional sizes and weights.In view of the limited space in which these objects, such as generators, transformers and medical equipment, are generally placed, the use of a crane is not one of the standard options.Heavy Lifting & Handling was already familiar with skidding technologies and the hydraulic tools produced byHolmatro, which was approached through the Belgian supplier Vanas to design and produce a complete skidding system.Halmatro built a double-acting hydraulic cylinder into the push/pull unit of the skidding set for Heavy Lifting & Handling. This cylinder has capacity of 26 tonnes and is able to move a maximum load of 200 tonnes.The load slides on the skid beam with the aid of ultra-smooth PTFE pads over tracks that are laid out in advance. When pushing from one side is no longer possible, the push/pull unit of the skidding set can be turned around without having to lift it off the track.Holmatro says that its configurable skidding system is suitable for extremely varied, client-specific applications.For more information visit holmatro.com
Do you see a typo or an error? Let us know. Town made famous by ‘Purple Rain’ unveils life-sized statue of Prince MINNEAPOLIS (AP) A doctor who saw Prince in the days before he died had prescribed oxycodone under the name of Prince’s friend to protect the musician’s privacy, according to an affidavit unsealed Monday.The document is one of several affidavits and search warrants unsealed in Carver County District Court as the yearlong investigation into Prince’s death continues.The documents don’t say where Prince got the fentanyl that killed him, which was obtained illegally and not by prescription. But they do shed some light on Prince’s struggle in the days before he died. Oxycodone was not listed as a cause of Prince’s death.Prince was 57 when he was found alone and unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park home on April 21. Autopsy results showed he died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl, a synthetic drug 50 times more powerful than heroin.According to the search warrants, authorities searched Paisley Park, cellphone records of Prince’s associates, and Prince’s email accounts to try to determine where he got the fentanyl.A search of Prince’s home yielded numerous pills in various containers. Some were in prescription bottles that were under the name Kirk Johnson, Prince’s longtime friend and associate. Some were counterfeit. At least one counterfeit pill tested positive for fentanyl.The documents suggest Prince was struggling with an addiction to prescription opioids. Just six days before he died, Prince fell ill on a plane and made an emergency stop in Illinois as he was returning home from a concert in Atlanta. First responders revived him with two doses of a drug that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.One affidavit says Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg, who saw Prince last April 7 and again on April 20, admitted to authorities that he prescribed oxycodone for Prince the same day as the emergency plane landing “but put the prescription in Kirk Johnson’s name for Prince’s privacy.”Authorities also searched Johnson’s cellphone records, to see who he was communicating with in the month before Prince died.Messages left with attorneys for Schulenberg and Johnson weren’t immediately returned Monday.Investigators haven’t interviewed either Johnson or Schulenberg since the hours after Prince died, an official with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.While authorities have the power to ask a grand jury to investigate and issue subpoenas for testimony, that step hasn’t been taken, the official said.Prince did not have a cellphone, and authorities searched multiple email accounts that belonged to him, as they tried to determine who he was communicating with and where he got the drugs that killed him, according to the search warrants. The search warrants don’t reveal the outcome of the email searches.Investigators have said little about the case over the last year, other than it is active. The official who spoke to the AP said the case has taken investigators to Illinois and California, as authorities have interviewed friends, family and any potential witnesses, including the flight crew and hospital staff that were present when Prince overdosed on the plane.

Lawyers handling claims against British soldiers ignored concerns about the lead client in order to ‘keep him sweet’, the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal heard today. In the third day of its hearing into allegations of misconduct over claims against British troops in Iraq, the tribunal was told that human rights firm Leigh Day had learned from a trusted intermediary as long ago as 2008 that its client Khuder Al-Sweady was suspected of violence and intimidation.But senior partner Martyn Day and his colleague Sapna Malik did not raise the issue further and failed to carry out an investigation into individual clients. Al-Sweady’s claims were eventually found to be fabricated. Timothy Dutton QC, representing the Solicitors Regulation Authority which is prosecuting the firm, Day and Malik, said the intermediary’s concerns were dismissed as ‘symptomatic of him vying for control of the clients’.Dutton said: ‘The real reason these matters were not investigated [is that] Martyn Day said it would be difficult if not impossible to run the claims without Al-Sweady. He needed Al-Sweady to bring the claims and lost sight of his professional obligations.’Al-Sweady was described as being the ‘best way into’ the other claims as well as being the lead client, with the firm’s response ‘symptomatic of efforts to keep him sweet’.The tribunal earlier heard the firm had inadequate systems for keeping important documents and knowing of their significance.Dutton said solicitors involved in the claims were ‘grotesquely and very seriously negligent’ in not appreciating they had in their possession a key document, and he noted this conduct amounted to a breach of duty. He added it was ‘undisputed’ there were failures in identifying which documents were most relevant, and it was only when the SRA became involved that the firm carried out a proper search and the document was discovered.Dutton added: ‘[Leigh Day] makes the point the documents on their files grew and grew… that is no answer at all either in [criticism of] document management systems or failure to share.‘If you’re going to embark on international law claims where your documents are going to grow, all the more reason to have a system in place to identify all relevant documents.’The tribunal also heard about the alleged involvement of solicitor Anna Crowther in the case. Crowther is charged with harming the reputation of the profession and failing in her professional duties over her disposal of a hand-written translation of a list of detainees which had been written in Arabic.Crowther, who was approaching five years’ qualified, had typed her own translation, keeping the original Arabic-language document, but destroyed the original translation a day before officials from the Al-Sweady Inquiry were due to assess files.Dutton said Leigh Day had argued that Crowther’s inexperience could explain away her mistake, but he insisted: ‘The public expects you to discharge your duties fully and one can’t say ‘I’m too junior to have appreciated the significance of what I’m doing’.All respondents deny misconduct. The hearing continues.
Two directors at a Liverpool personal injury practice have each been fined £10,000 after failing to notice serious issues with the firm’s accounts.The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal said Michael James Paul Wilson and Sean James Rogers, of High Street Solicitors, had not asked enough questions about cash shortfall in the accounts.The tribunal found that during monthly finance meetings, the firm’s leaders had only discussed growing the business and its profits, with no suggestion they considered compliance with their regulatory obligations.It was no defence to say they relied entirely on outside companies to ensure compliance, and they failed to make any enquiries that would have uncovered issues. The tribunal also found Wilson and Rogers were not absolved from responsibility or blame just because a third respondent, non-solicitor Victoria Kinsella, was the firm’s compliance officer for financial matters.The tribunal added: ‘They were not expected to check each and every piece of work undertaken by the finance team, however they should have checked the product of that work in circumstances where non-compliance would be found to be a material and thus reportable breach.’The tribunal heard that Solicitors Regulation Authority inspectors had found a large number of unreconciled items, consisting of unpresented cheques and unprocessed electronic transfers, in the firm’s account. Most items related to unpaid professional disbursements and ATE insurance premiums.The SRA submitted that but for the unpresented items, the firm’s account would have exceeded its overdraft limit each month by up to £300,000 – in effect, the items were propping up the firm.Wilson and Rogers said they had delegated accounts matters to Kinsella, who in turn had relied on an accountant with access to the firm’s systems, as well as the services of a regulatory compliance consultancy. None of the external consultants had raised any issues with what was happening. The tribunal accepted as mitigation that no client money was lost and Wilson and Rogers had made good the shortfall. They had shown genuine insight and had cooperated fully with the investigation.Kinsella, who was not represented during the hearing and did not attend, accepted she failed to take adequate action over the disbursements and ATE premiums and allowing client money to be held improperly. She had not reported matters to the SRA because she was ‘blinded’ by loyalty to the firm. She was barred from working in the profession without SRA permission.Wilson, Rogers and Kinsella were each ordered to pay £20,000 in costs.
