EG GREEN: Stark-Harmony Takes Over Abattoir
-------------------------------------------
An international syndicate has won the right to take over EG
Green and Son's Harvey Meatworks, according to ABC Premium News.

The Stark-Harmony consortium has won the bidding for West
Australia's largest beef processor with an AU$27-million offer
and a guarantee of at least 93 cents in the dollar for secured
creditors.

EG Green and Sons has operated Harvey Meatworks for 86 years,
before it fell into administrators' hands with massive debts.

The new owners have promised to beef up production and boost
export sales into Asia.

Administrator Martin Jones said the abattoir's new owners
represent the best chance for the embattled meatworks industry
in West Australia to flourish.

The deal will see secured creditors getting back all of their
money returned or in the case of unsecured creditors,
approximately 94 cents in the dollar.

WA Farmers Federation spokesman Mike Norton says the deal also
comes as a relief to producers, some owed hundreds of thousands
of dollars.

EMPEROR MINES: Union Tries to Save Workers
------------------------------------------
The Mine Workers Union has made attempts to convince Emperor
Mines to retain some 374 workers, Fiji Village reports.

The union has proposed that the employees be retained on a 20-
percent pay cut and that the 20 percent be paid back to them
after three months.

The second proposal is to pay the 20 percent after six months
and the third was that the employees work six days a week but
receive pay for five days and the balance to be paid after three
months.

The Union had earlier threatened to stage a strike if the
workers are laid off.

FORTESCUE METALS: Still Running After Elusive AU$2.3 Bln
--------------------------------------------------------
Mining entrepreneur Andrew Forrest has claimed Fortescue Metals'
AU$2.3-billion Pilbara iron ore project had been "almost
completely de-risked", The Sydney Morning Herald reveals.

Mr. Forrest's statement was deemed very bold because he is just
two months from his self-imposed March deadline to dig up AU$2.3
billion needed for Fortescue to construct a mine, port and
railway in time to deliver iron ore to Chinese customers by late
2007 or early 2008.

Fortescue has already postponed twice the targeted shipping date
to China, which was originally scheduled for late 2006.

Market observers raise their eyebrows at Mr. Fortescue's claim,
as even global giants BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto have suffered
cost overruns due to higher steel and wage prices associated
with the commodities boom.

The December newsletter, Fortescue also made vague statements
about its successes in mining the global financial markets. The
company claimed it had "positioned itself for a successful
financial close over the next several months", making no mention
of the March 1 deadline Mr. Forrest insisted he would meet
during a presentation at Fortescue's annual meeting in November.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Warns of New Bank Scam Web Sites
----------------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank (NAB) warned that new web sites have
already appeared to replace those shut down for their
involvement in e-mail scam, according to ABC News Online.

More than 6,000 customers targeted by an email banking scam have
contacted NAB.

The bank has worked with Australian Federal Police (AFP) to shut
down eight overseas web sites involved in the scam, which began
around Boxing Day. The sites have operated from Germany, China,
Turkey and Korea.

The AFP and NAB have already dissolved eight web sites.

NAB spokeswoman Mikala Sabin said negotiations to get more
closed in China Korea and Turkey are continuing.

The hoax e-mails often include a letterhead and ask for
confirmation of banking details for security or software
upgrades. Clicking on the link to bogus bank web sites allows
the scammers to steal customers' details.

HINDUSTAN ANTIBIOTICS: Paswan Throws Lifeline
---------------------------------------------
State-owned penicillin maker Hindustan Antibiotics is likely to
keep its nearly INR1,500 crore in assets, The Financial Express
reports.

Union chemical and fertilizers minister Ramvilas Paswan has
promised to shell out INR136 crore to rescue the ailing firm.

Mr. Paswan said there was no need to sell the company's 250 acre
of land to raise funds. He vowed the get the Union cabinet's
approval of the bailout package within two weeks.

Hindustan Antibiotics has been embroiled in financial crisis for
the past decade and was referred to the Board for Industrial &
Financial Reconstruction (BIFR) for winding up operations in
2003. But Union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar has intervened
and promised a rehabilitation proposal for the revival of the
company last year.

As per the original proposal, the Centre was to provide INR80
crore for resurrection of the company while the remaining amount
of INR56 crore was to be raised by selling off company's assets.

Mr. Paswan said the delay was caused by his disapproval to sell
company's assets. He insisted on providing the entire amount of
INR136 crore under a special package.

GARUDA INDONESIA: Vice President Defends Sale
---------------------------------------------
Indonesia's Vice President Jusuf Kalla defended the government's
plan to sell troubled state airline PT Garuda Indonesia, saying
there is little pride in owning an ailing airline, reports the
Jakarta Post.

Vice President Kalla said that in the 1950's, owning an airline
was a metter of national pride, as the airline represented the
country itself. But today, he said,  an airline is not
everything for a country.

He added that Garuda Indonesia should also be healthy
commercially, and that it is good for the country if it makes a
profit, but if it always suffers losses, then investors should
be welcomed.

Minister of State Enterprises Sugiharto had earlier announced
the government's decision to sell the Company, but it will not
sell off the entire airline to investors.

Now there are at least three investors keen on acquiring Garuda,
Didu said but he refused to give a name.

Garuda Indonesia sought to meet with creditors in an effort to
reschedule its debt repayments which were due on Dec. 31, 2005.
However, it will continue to pay the interest on its repayments.

According to Secretary of the Office of the State Minister M.
Said Didu, the Company has attracted the interest of three
investors despite its financial situation, but he did not give
out any names.

NEWERA FOOTWEAR: Rating Downgraded to 'idBB+'
---------------------------------------------
Indonesian rating agency PT Pefindo downgraded the ratings for
PT Newera Footwear Indonesia (NEFI) and the Company's Bond
I/2003 totaling IDR31.5 billion due 2008 to "idBB+" from "idBBB-
", and at the same time removed the ratings from `Creditwatch'
status.

The downgrades reflect the Company's weakening sales, squeezed
profitability and limited cash flow protection figures.

However, NEFI's strong market position in footwear industry and
its relatively extensive distribution network somewhat mitigated
the downgrades. NEFI missed to pay its sinking fund payment of
IDR3.15 billion on November 21, 2005, and up to now, there has
been no settlement yet with its Bondholders.

The Company is regarded as one of the largest footwear
distributors in Indonesia covering daily footwear products
including sport and traveling shoes that are particularly
offered to middle to low-income people. Unlike other distributor
companies and most shoes manufacturers in Indonesia that do not
have their own brands, NEFI is a license holder of Newera brand.
The Company's footwear productions are subcontracted to several
shoes manufacturers in East Java. As to date, NEFI's major
shareholder is New Era Global Ltd. with 94.17% ownership.


PERTAMINA: Government Decides to Replace Company Chief
------------------------------------------------------
The Indonesian government has decided to replace state oil and
gas firm PT Pertamina's current President Director Widja
Purnama, Asia Pulse reports.

According to Minister of State Enterprises Sugiharto, Mr.
Purnama will be replaced based on the system, and not because
the Company requested it. He added that the ministry is still
studying the legal aspects of the replacement, but that it might
occur this month.

The government is cautious about replacing the heads of state-
owned firms due to previous experience with the replacement of
directors that ended in legal disputes. The government is also
trying to avoid "disorientation" amid the fuel price hikes, and
cabinet reshuffling issues.

Minister Sugiharto said that now is the time to replace
Pertamina's directors.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Safety Advisors Issue Report
--------------------------------------------
A special committee of outside experts established to consult
and advise Japan Airlines (JAL) on safety issues has presented
the results of their examination and recommendations.

The five-member committee was set up in August this year in
response to a proposal made to JAL by the Japanese Ministry of
Land Infrastructure and Transport (MLIT) on June 17, 2005.

The committee's 126-page report, handed over to JAL on December
26, includes a wide-ranging list of measures and
recommendations.

With the basic title of, "Securing the Fundamentals in Achieving
the Highest Safety Standards," the report proposes action in 11
major areas.

These include upgrading employee safety awareness, company
organization changes to clarify and simplify chains of command,
greater personnel exchange to broaden basic operational
knowledge, heightened safety oversight, the systematic use of
case studies of safety-related events in employee training and
encouraging staff to take the initiative in preventing everyday
errors.

Also emphasized in the report are the links between human error
and accidents, the importance of improving the flow of
information through good communications and the establishment of
a solid corporate safety culture, aiming at the creation of a
safety culture of the highest level

On receiving the report, JAL C.E.O. Toshiyuki Shinmachi
commented, "We thank the Safety Advisory group and appreciate
their diligence for making their investigations in such a short
time and for providing their recommendations. We will examine
their recommendations carefully, with a view to their
implementation by all JAL Group personnel."

"There is no end to the challenge to secure flight safety. We
will continue to make ceaseless efforts to gain the confidence
of our customers," Mr. Shinmachi added.

The advisory committee is composed of five experts from outside
the company who have an extensive knowledge of and experience in
the fields of safety, human error analysis, organizational
operations and business culture. Chairman of the committee is
Mr. Kunio Yanagida, a former news reporter for NHK - the
Japanese national broadcasting corporation - and now a very well
known award-winning writer specializing in scientific, medical
and aviation topics in Japanese media.

JAL has been carrying out a series of corrective measures that
were implemented in response to a MLIT "Business Improvement
Order'' issued on March 17 to boost safety awareness after a
series of infringements. Among measures already taken by the
airline are the raising of employee safety awareness through
informal meetings with top executives; a review of all safety
procedures and operations manuals to prevent human error; and
confirming compliance procedures and making improvements to the
Group's safety organization structure.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Confirms Hike in Domestic Fares
-----------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines (JAL) will increase the price of domestic Japan
normal passenger airfares from April 1 to September 30, 2006 to
help the airline group cope with the financial impact of
sustained high fuel prices.

JAL recently filed a fare increase application with the Japanese
Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation (MLIT).

During the period, JAL domestic Japan normal airfares will
increase from between 3.0% to 11.3% per one-way sector. The
amount of increase will depend on the distance of the sector(s)
flown.

JAL expects high fuel prices to continue into the future. JAL
has estimated that its fuel bill in fiscal year (FY) 2005 will
be 90 billion yen higher than that of FY2004, and in FY2006 will
be JPY130-140 billion higher than that of FY2004.

JAL has taken a wide range of countermeasures to offset the
price increase including hedging and cost cutting. The JAL
Group's medium term corporate plan for the period 2005 through
2007 includes reform of structural costs by 75 billion yen
annually by 2007 but despite these measures the company is
reluctantly obliged to ask its passengers to bear part of the
burden.

From April 1st 2006, JAL will eliminate the present domestic
fuel surcharge established in January 2005. The fuel surcharge
is 200 or 300 yen per one-way sector.

MITSUI MINING: IRCJ Disposes Of Entire Equity
---------------------------------------------
The Industrial Revitalization Committee of the Industrial
Revitalization Corporation of Japan (the IRCJ) has reached a
decision to sell all equity held in Mitsui Mining Company
Limited.

Background: On October 31, 2003 the IRCJ approved an application
for assistance by Mitsui Mining under Article 22, Clause 3 of
the Industrial Revitalization Corporation Act of 2003. On
December 10, 2003, under Article 25, Clause 1 of the same act,
the IRCJ reached agreement with financial institutions on the
purchase of the company's debts, and in February 2004 a capital
reduction and recapitalization was implemented.

After helping progress revitalization of the company in line
with the business revitalization plan, in March 2005 the IRCJ
transferred a portion of its holdings in Mitsui Mining to three
sponsor companies (Daiwa Securities SMBC Principal Investments
Co., Ltd., Nippon Steel Corporation and Sumitomo Corporation)
and continued to support the business revitalization of Mitsui
Mining along with those companies. Now that a certain level of
progress in the business revitalization has been achieved, the
IRCJ has decided to divest its remaining equity held in Mitsui
Mining. The IRCJ plans to continue to observe movements in the
stock market and divest all equity in an appropriate manner
within a reasonable timeframe.

3. Capital injection, etc.

Through a debt equity swap of JPY20.0 billion (comprising 10.0
billion of ordinary shares and JPY10.0 billion of class A
preferred shares), the IRCJ gained 52% of issued shares of
Mitsui Mining, representing 52% of voting rights.

In March 2005, the IRCJ sold ordinary shares corresponding to
33% of issued shares (33% of voting rights), representing an
initial investment amount of 6.3 billion, along with all class
A preferred shares held. The IRCJ has now decided to divest the
remaining common shares it holds in the company (representing an
initial investment JPY3.7 billion and 19%* of voting rights).

* The figure of 19% represents the percentage before conversion
of preferred shares into common shares by the sponsor companies
on December 2, 2005. The figure prior to conversion was
approximately 13%.

4. Comment from the state ministers in charge of the Industrial
Revitalization Corporation of Japan: None expressed

MBF HOLDINGS: Issues Update to Unit's Wind Up Petition
------------------------------------------------------
MBF Holdings Berhad issued to Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad
details of the placement of subsidiary under creditors'
voluntary winding up scheme pursuant to Section 254 of the
Companies Act, 1965.

MBf Holdings Berhad (MBfH) informed Bursa Malaysia that
the directors of its wholly owned subsidiary, Melawati
Recreation Berhad (Melawati), have on December 29, 2005
resolved:

that Melawati cannot by reason of its liabilities, continue its
business and that it be wound up voluntarily;

that pursuant to Section 255 of the Companies Act 1965, Mr.
Jeyaraj a/l V. Ratnaswamy and Encik Mustapha bin Mohamed of
Messrs. MustaphaRaj Sdn Bhd, Suite 23.01, 23rd Floor Plaza
Permata, Jalan Kampar, Off Jalan Tun Razak, 50400 Kuala Lumpur
be and are hereby appointed as Provisional Liquidators for
the purpose of the winding up; and

that separate meetings of members and creditors of Melawati be
convened pursuant to Section 254 (1) (b) and Section 260 (1) of
the Companies Act, 1965 respectively.

Information on Melawati

Melawati was incorporated on July 16, 1984 and the principal
activity was the development and sale of memberships of a
recreational club. The authorized share capital of Melawati is
MYR20,000,000 comprising 20,000,000 ordinary shares of MYR1.00
each, of which 1,200,000 ordinary shares have been issued and
fully paid-up.

As at November 30, 2005, Melawati has a deficit shareholders'
fund of approximately MYR33.7 million.

Rationale for the Winding Up

The winding up of Melawati is due to its inability to meet the
repayment of its liabilities to its creditors as and when they
fall due and its inability to continue its business.

Financial Effect of the Winding Up

The winding up of Melawati would not have any material impact on
the operations of the Company.

There will be a gain of approximately MYR17.7 million arising
from the de-consolidation consequent to the winding up. The
gain is computed on the basis that:

(1) The realizable value of the assets charged to a financial
institution for a credit facility is sufficient to relinquish
the outstanding principal sum of MYR13.0 million; and

(2) Following the liquidation of Melawati, MBfH as guarantor for
(1) above shall assume the servicing of interest on the
abovementioned credit facility until the full settlement of the
facility.

Interests of Directors, Substantial Shareholders and Persons
connected to the Directors and Substantial Shareholders

None of the directors, substantial shareholders and
persons connected to the directors and substantial shareholders
of MBfH has any interest, direct or indirect in the said
exercise.

Yours faithfully,
For and on behalf of
MBf Holdings Berhad

LAFAYETTE MINING: Government Official Comes to Defense
------------------------------------------------------
A top government official has cautioned colleagues against
blaming Lafayette Mining Limited for contaminating the waters
along the coastal towns of Sorsogon, according to The Philippine
Daily Inquirer.

Albay Governor Fernando Gonzales, an active member of the
Lafayette monitoring team, said the Australian mining company
does not used mercury in processing the ores.

He said Prieto Diaz Mayor Bonito Doma should not blame the mine
spill for the fish scare that had affected the coastal towns of
Sorsogon.

Gov. Gonzales said determining the source of mercury would put
to rest the issue of Lafayette's culpability in the
contamination.

He also added that the withdrawal of Lafayette's mining
operation would take away very significant investment and
employment opportunities, not to mention the taxes and dues the
mining firm pays to the provincial government.

Some of the operations of the Lafayette Philippines Inc. (LPI)
have been suspended pending final study or findings of the
independent monitoring team formed by the Mines and Geosciences
Bureau.

and Sta. Ana, parts of Quezon City, parts of Makati, Caloocan,

NATIONAL FOOD: Central Bank OKs Loan
------------------------------------
The central bank's Monetary Board has approved last week three
foreign loans amounting to US$0.6 million, The Manila Bulletin
has learned.

The biggest was the million short-term revolving fund for the
National Food Authority (NFA) to pay for rice imports.

NFA is the borrower while the creditor is Sumitomo-Mitsui Bank.

Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Amando M. Tetangco Jr. said
the MB has approved in principle the NFA loans.

"This will cover the country's rice importations for 2006," he
said.

The revolving fund started this year. It has a tenor of 12
months, 30-day LIBOR plus 1.5 percent spread per annum.

PHILIPPINE AIRLINES: May Fund NAIA 3 Annex Construction
-------------------------------------------------------
National flag carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL) is likely to
finance the construction of Ninoy Aquino International Airport
(NAIA) Terminal 3 annex to accommodate its domestic operations,
ABS-CBN News reports.

The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said PAL wants
to transfer to Terminal 3 along with its domestic operations,
but the facility cannot accommodate it.

PAL had said it is better for the company's financial plan if
domestic and international flight operations are both at the
NAIA 3. Besides the integrated operations, the airline company
has requested the government to build a cargo terminal at the
NAIA 3.

MIAA General Manager Alfonso Cusi advised PAL to construct an
annex if the carrier wants a smooth operation.

Mr. Cusi said the Terminal 3 annex can be completed in one year
if PAL would agree to finance it. He also said the term sheet of
the planned US$300-million three-year loan from a group of
lenders, led by the Development Bank of the Philippines, will be
finalized by January.

To date, Mr. Cusi said no decision has been made on who will
construct the annex.

ACCORD CUSTOMER: Ex-Finance Chief Seeks to Reduce Charges
---------------------------------------------------------
Lawyers for the former chief financial officer of mobile phone
solutions provider Accord Customer Care Solutions Limited (ACCS)
are seeking a plea bargain, reports Channel NewsAsia.

ACCS ex-CFO Yip Hwai Chong is one of four former executives
charged for conspiracy against mobile phone giant Nokia.

Citing unnamed sources, Channel NewsAsia reports that the
alleged conspiracy by the Company to cheat Nokia with false
warranty claims began when Nokia told thew Company that it would
send up to 30,000 phones a month for repairs.

But the number of phones sent for repaird fell far short of the
expected number, thus, leading to huge losses for ACCS. The
Copmany's top executives then created a scheme to send fake
warranty repair claims worth around SGD4.3 million to Nokia from
January 2005 to September 2005.

According to his lawyers, Mr. Yip was not an active participant
in the scheme; they are seeking to reduce the 98 charges that
were made against him.

The court has set Jan. 18, 2006 to hear Mr. Yip's plea.
