News Reporters Without Borders condemns the distribution bans imposed on recent issues of two French magazines, Jeune Afrique and Afrique Magazine, at the behest of the information ministry in Abu Dhabi because of articles regarded as offensive or overly critical.“Such measures are both arbitrary and archaic, inasmuch as the content of these publications can be accessed online,” Reporters Without Borders said.The weekly Jeune Afrique’s 5-11 April issue was censored because of a cover story headlined “Muslims and sex” with a cover photo showing a woman’s bare back. The authorities subsequently banned the April issue of the monthly Afrique Magazine, which had a report by Akram Belkaïd headlined “Dubai, end of the dream” about the emirate’s current economic and political problems.

Berger has maintained close communication with regulators and Congress throughout the pandemic to share what credit unions are experiencing and how Washington can help them better serve members in need.Berger urged the CFPB to hold off on rulemakings during the pandemic and recovery to ensure credit union resources can be fully dedicated to serving members. He previously asked the bureau, and NCUA, to provide broad flexibility with compliance for at least 60 days.In addition, Berger reiterated NAFCU’s call for the bureau to modernize the electronic disclosure and signature-related provisions of all its regulations. Last month, NAFCU made this request and outlined proposed legislative amendments to the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-Sign Act) to provide relief to credit unions and their members amid the coronavirus pandemic.
