AIR NEW ZEALAND: Supports NZ Tourism Promotion
----------------------------------------------
National flag carrier Air New Zealand has called for setting up
of an industry body to ensure overseas airlines mark funds to
promote New Zealand tourism.

Air New Zealand chief executive Rob Fyfe has recommended that
foreign-owned airlines including Qantas Airways and Emirates
should pay for tourism promotion as part of their rights to fly
to the country.

The airline's point is whoever chooses to fly to the country,
genuinely comes to support our national interests.

"If the government is going to allow airlines to fly into this
country they (should) demand of those airlines that they support
and nurture our natural greatest resource, which is tourism. "At
the moment all they do is freeload on our (promotional) spend,"
said Mr. Fyfe.

Mr. Fyfe indicated that regulators such as the Government had
undermined the airline-tourism framework by allowing competing
airlines to operate too easily in the New Zealand market.

Citing an example from Air New Zealand's contribution and market
share it is being said that given Qantas had about 20% of that
market, it should spend AU$40 million a year on promoting New
Zealand, and other airlines should pay according to their share,
according to Mr. Fyfe.  The airline spent about NZ$80 million a
year offshore trying to attract tourists to New Zealand, and had
about a 40% share of the international inbound market.

Sharing his concerns, Mr. Fyfe said, "Our government has allowed
Emirates to operate in that market in a way that we believe has
undermined rational competition in that market."

According to suff.co.nz, for Emirates that route represented
less than 1% of that airlines revenue, so was not a key
consideration for that airline.

"They can destroy the viability of 20% of our revenue base, and
that's pretty hard to be able to take. My personal view is we
demand that if airlines want to fly here, they spend a certain
amount of their promotional spend," Mr. Fyfe said.

ALLSTATE INSURANCE: Former Broker Sentenced on Fraud Charges
------------------------------------------------------------
Peter John Mason, former director of failed Allstate Insurance
Pty Limited has been convicted on 14 counts of fraud in the
District Court of Queensland in Brisbane.  Mr. Mason, who
pleaded guilty, was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment to be
wholly suspended for an operational period of two years on all
charges.

The charges were a result of an investigation by the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission.

ASIC investigated Mr. Mason's conduct when he was Director of
Allstate Insurance Pty Ltd, a registered insurance broking
company.  The investigation focused on the premiums paid by 11
clients of Allstate at Strathpine in 2001.

ASIC alleged that between May and October 2001 Allstate received
funds from clients by way of premium payments.  While the funds
should have been forwarded to insurance underwriters it was
proven that Mr. Mason failed to do so.

Some underwriters subsequently terminated some of the insurance
policies of Mr. Mason's clients.  These clients were unaware
that their policies had ceased.  As a result, they were
potentially left uninsured and at risk. The insurance policies
covered motor vehicles, homes and businesses.

In January 2002, ASIC alerted approximately 740 clients of the
situation in writing.  At this time, Allstate also went into
voluntary administration and subsequently, in February 2002, the
company went into liquidation.

CROESUS MINING: Unveils Business Turnaround Plan
------------------------------------------------
Croesus Mining, backed by its main creditor Macquarie Bank, will
implement a short-term revival plan to return its Norseman gold
business to profitability, The Sydney Morning Herald says.

A longer-term production forecast would also be prepared in due
course to provide the basis for longer-term financial planning.

The turnaround plan was formulated after Croesus conducted a
detailed evaluation of all financial and operational aspects of
the business, an independent solvency review and consultation
and liaison with major stakeholders including creditors,
directors, senior management, employees, consultants and
suppliers.

Chairperson Michael Kiernan said the review concluded that poor
decisions over several years had left the company in a difficult
financial and operational position, with the key issue being
insufficient ore sources to maintain its processing plant at
full capacity, and high costs.

The Company, whose shares have been in trading halt since March
16, 2006, will now embark on a program of enhancing productivity
to increase monthly gold production.

It has also deferred certain short-term financial obligations to
help the mine return to positive cashflow.

A new management team has also been put in, with the three main
leaders all coming from Mr. Kiernan's Consolidated Minerals.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
March 21, 2006, that Croesus has called in external advisers to
review its financial position after posting a first-half loss of  
AU$27 million and after experiencing difficulties meeting its
gold hedging commitments.  The TCR-AP said that Croesus Mining
N.L. Chairman Michael Kiernan personally pledged to help
bankroll a revival of the gold producer.  He was reportedly
encouraged by Macquarie Bank's initial response to Croesus'
approaches about restructuring the hedgebook to give the Company
breathing space.

Headquartered in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, Croesus Mining
N.L. -- http://www.croesus.com.au/-- explores and produces gold  
through its Davyhurst and Central Norseman exploration projects.  

Falling grades and skyrocketing costs have pulled down Croesus'
production and profitability since 2005.  Croesus' problems also
stem from inadequate mine planning and development at its
flagship Norseman operation, where it operates the Bullen and
Harlequin mines.  After selling its Davyhurst project to fellow
Western Australian gold miner Monarch Resources Ltd. in November
to focus on the Norseman site, Croesus warned of a AU$28 million
pretax loss for the six months to December 31, 2005, on lower
output and hedging losses.

SYDNEY GAS: To Raise AU$50 Mln via Rights Issue
-----------------------------------------------
Sydney Gas Ltd on April 7, 2006, unveiled a recapitalization
plan to raise up to AU$50 million through an underwritten
shareholder rights issue, a June noteholder rights issue and
establishment of a new convertible note facility through Babcock
& Brown.

The capital raising is planned to provide Sydney Gas with the
funding required to pay its existing convertible notes, fund its
commitments under work programs agreed with joint venture
partner The Australian Gas Light Company and enhance its
institutional shareholder base.  The recapitalization plan is
conditional upon certain matters, including shareholder
approval, to be sought at a general meeting to be held on May 8,
2006.

The recapitalization plan comprises:

     -- up to AU$34.4 million in a non-renounceable pro-rata
        rights issue to all Sydney Gas shareholders and existing
        June noteholders of one new share for every 2.43 shares
        or notes held.  The rights issue to ordinary
        shareholders will be underwritten by Babcock & Brown
        Securities Pty Ltd; and

     -- a facility for Sydney Gas of AU$15.6 million of new
        convertible notes to be issued initially to Babcock &
        Brown.

The non-renounceable rights issue is to be priced at 30 cents
per Sydney Gas share.  The new convertible notes will carry an
interest rate of 10.5% per year -- compared with the expiring
notes of 12% per year -- and will be convertible into one
ordinary share at a conversion price of 42.5 cents per share.

Approximately AU$20 million of the money raised will be used to
fund the repayment of Sydney Gas' current convertible notes,
which mature on June 1, 2006.  The remainder of the funds raised
will be used to pay Sydney Gas' share of development and
exploration costs under its coal seam gas joint venture with
AGL.  Sydney Gas intends to use its cash on hand to redeem the 1
April 2006 tranche of AU$9.925 million of convertible notes and
will replenish its cash balance once the proceeds of the capital
raising are received.

The Company now has:
  
     -- a stable, professional board;
     -- a solid business plan underpinned by strategic
        opportunities; and
     -- a recapitalization plan that can provide Sydney Gas with
        financial strength and flexibility for future growth.

With these significant achievements in place, Michael Norster --
who agreed to take on the role of Interim Chairman last December
-- has decided, due to his other business commitments, to step
down as Chairman. Michael Norster will continue to serve as a
non-executive director.

The Board has appointed existing director Ray Schoer as its new
Chairman. Ray Schoer, an experienced company director and former
Chief Executive of the National Companies and
Securities Commission, the forerunner to the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission, is well placed to take
the Company forward.

Mr. Schoer paid tribute to Mr. Norster's contribution in
steering the company through the complex process of
reconstituting the board and assessing various refinancing
proposals while the Company was and continues to be the subject
of a takeover offer, so that the Company could put a robust plan
to its shareholders.

Mr. Schoer said, "The recapitalization plan was chosen as being
in the best interests of all shareholders after consideration of
a number of alternative financing proposals since December 2005.
It would provide Sydney Gas with a solid financial base and
remove uncertainty over the need to pay out its June convertible
notes."

He said Queensland Gas Company Ltd's takeover offer containing a
proposal to refinance Sydney Gas' current convertible notes was
subject to the highly conditional offer succeeding, and this was
not certain within the timeframe for Sydney Gas' cashflow needs,
if at all.  Furthermore, Sydney Gas had been investigating
funding alternatives well before QGC's offer was announced.

"Sydney Gas" improved prospects are demonstrated by the fact
that the company has attracted finance from such a prominent
global investor as Babcock & Brown," Mr. Schoer said.

Babcock & Brown has long-standing capabilities as an active
investor with particular experience in the energy sector, can
enhance Sydney Gas' access to capital and has the potential to
provide access to a broader customer base.

Babcock & Brown will be invited to nominate one director to the
Sydney Gas Board provided, after the convertible note facility
is approved and drawn down, it or its associates hold at least
AU$5 million of the new convertible notes. Babcock & Brown will
be able to nominate two directors to the Board if it or its
associates continue to hold at least AU$8.75 million of the new
notes. The new notes mature in three years.

Babcock & Brown has indicated that only senior executives with
significant experience in the energy and infrastructure sectors
would be nominated to the Sydney Gas Board.

Mr. Schoer said shareholders can vote to create a strong, well-
funded Sydney Gas by approving the capital raising proposal at
the shareholders meeting.

                        About Sydney Gas

Sydney Gas Limited -- http://www.sydneygas.com/-- is a major  
coal seam methane producer in New South Wales.  It is the first
CSM producer in New South Wales to be granted a Production
Lease.  Its tenements cover the major energy markets in NSW
extending across the Wollongong, Sydney and Hunter Valley
regions.  The company's key producing asset is located at Camden
and the Company is currently evaluating the upside projects at
Hunter and Merriwa.

On November 15, 2005, Sydney Gas completed all of the
preconditions to the Joint Venture arrangements with The
Australian Gas Light Company over its development and
exploration assets in NSW, and the consideration of AU$42.25
million has been paid to Sydney Gas by AGL.  The financial close
of the joint venture arrangements with AGL completed a critical
element of the Company's strategy and saved Sydney Gas from
looming insolvency.  The Australian Securities and Investments
Commission later decided not to take further action on
allegations that Sydney Gas had breached the Corporations Act,
unless new information comes to light.

Sydney Gas's entire board quit in December 2005 after the
Company's shares were suspended to allow it to progress its
inquiries regarding the ownership of and arrangements concerning
the exercise of rights affecting a substantial number of shares
in the Company.
  
Sydney Gas has been struggling with the challenge of funding its
redemption of AU$30 million of convertible notes, with the first
tranche due on April 1, 2006, and the other due in June.  
Queensland Gas launched an AU$88-million takeover bid for Sydney
Gas, at AU$0.36 per share, together with an offer to bail the
Company out by funding the redemption of its existing notes and
issuing a new, cheaper set of notes.  Sydney Gas rejected the
Queensland Offer.

TEN PERCENT: Receiver Steps Aside
---------------------------------
On March 1, 2006, Kenneth Stewart Sellers ceased to act as the

WESTPOINT GROUP: Directors' Assets Remain Frozen
------------------------------------------------
The Federal Court in Perth has extended the asset freeze on
Westpoint Corporation's four directors until the matter is heard
on Wednesday, April 12, 2006, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The matter was adjourned with the lawyers for the Westpoint
directors saying they had not had enough time to review the
evidence of the case.

As reported by The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
April 6, 2006, the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission last week successfully applied to have the assets of
Norman Philip Carey, Graeme John Rundle, John Norman Dixon and
Cedric Richard Palmer Beck frozen.

The four directors have also been prohibited from leaving
Australia or even venturing within 100 meters of an overseas
departure point in the country until that date.  Furthermore,
the directors were in the meantime granted an amendment allowing
direct debit orders, such as mortgages, from financial
institutions to be paid.

The Court also granted interim asset freezing orders against
Richstar Enterprises, Westpoint Realty, Bowesco, and Redchime,
all of which are companies associated with Norman Carey, TCR-AP
stated.

                            About Westpoint

Headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, the Westpoint Group
-- http://westpoint.com.au/-- is engaged in property  
development and owns or manages retail and commercial properties
with a total value of over AU$300 million.  The Group's troubles
began in 2005 when the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission commenced a series of legal proceedings in relation
to a number of companies within the Westpoint Group.  ASIC
contends that Westpoint projects are suffering from significant
shortfall of assets over liabilities so that hundreds of
investors are at serious risk of not receiving repayment of
their investments.  These investigations were then followed by
the winding up of a number of Westpoint's mezzanine companies.
ASIC also sought wind-up orders after the Westpoint companies
failed to comply with ASIC's requirement to lodge accounts for
certain financial years.

The most recent development in the Westpoint battle is the wind-
up order issued by the Federal Court in Perth against Westpoint
Corporation Pty Ltd.  ASIC applied to wind up the company on
grounds of insolvency.  ASIC believes that Westpoint Corporation
is responsible for arranging, managing and coordinating
Westpoint Group's property projects as well as holding money for
other group companies.  ASIC was concerned that Westpoint
Corporation was unable to pay its debts, including its
obligations under the guarantees given to the mezzanine
companies to make good expected shortfalls in the repayment of
amounts owed to investors.  The Westpoint Group's collapse is
considered by many as the largest of its type in recent years,
with small investors being the biggest group affected.

Investors are currently joining forces to commence a class
action against Westpoint and its advisors.

BOE TECHNOLOGY: Xinhua Cuts Rating to B
---------------------------------------
Xinhua Far East China Ratings has downgraded the issuer credit
rating of BOE Technology Group Co Ltd to B from BB.  The
Company's rating outlook has been changed to negative.

The downgrade reflects Xinhua Far East's view that it will be
challenging for BOE to sustain its development in the highly
risky TFT-LCD manufacturing sector in the long-term.  Meanwhile,
BOE has a track record of tolerating high debt levels and
adopting aggressive expansion policies.  In addition,
unfavorable market conditions, as well as the Company's
tremendous refinancing needs, challenges in cost controls and
difficulties in local sourcing, have made BOE's credit profile
highly vulnerable.

In Xinhua Far East's opinion, BOE is engaging in a highly risky
and cyclical sector, which is very capital - and technology -
intensive.  BOE also faces heightened competition from its large
international peers, which have completed more sixth and seventh
generation production lines, offsetting market demand, resulting
in depressed product prices overall in 2005.

Xinhua Far East believes that given the industry nature, BOE has
very limited flexibility in holding back its capital
expenditures.  The Company must invest further, or else all
previous investments will evaporate.  Xinhua Far East
anticipates it will be difficult for BOE to sustain its
development in the long run given its constraints in capital and
technology, operating experience and risk control capability
relative to its international peers.

The downgrade reflects BOE's track record of tolerating high
debt levels and adopting aggressive expansion.  BOE relies
heavily on bank loans for expansion and capital expenditures.
The Company's gross debt to total capital increased from 49.0%
in 2002 to 74.2% by the end of 3Q/FY05.  The downgrade also
takes into account BOE's plans to build higher generation
production lines in the future.

The downgrade action factors in the heavy losses stemming from
BOE's core operations, which can hardly turn around amid an
unfavorable market environment.  Compounding with its EBIT
margin of negative 12.7% and net operating cash flow of negative
CNY773 million in 1-3Q05, BOE said it expects to report a net
loss of CNY1,600 million in full-year 2005 and continuing net
loss of CNY500 million in the first quarter of 2006.

Nevertheless, Xinhua Far East acknowledges that BOE's strategic
investment in its associate Company TPV Technology Limited
partially secures its downstream market position.  With BOE's
injection of OTPV and the involvement of Philips, TPV's business
will see significant benefits, which in turn will benefit BOE.
But despite being its largest shareholder, BOE has limited
control over TPV, leaving BOE itself to shoulder the mounting
debt and operating risks of the TFT-LCD business.

Xinhua Far East also notes that BOE's plan for an H shares
offering to raise USD400 million will only slightly alleviate
its debt burdens.  Even if BOE succeeds in the share offering
given its loss performance, the offering will only reduce BOE's
debt level by about 10% based on its 3Q05 financials.
Going forward, Xinhua Far East's rating action for BOE will
depend on its:

     * capital expenditure plan for higher production lines and
       other investments;

     * operating results and cost control ability; and

     * cash generating ability.

                      About BOE Technology

BOE Technology Group Co. Limited is one of the largest display
device manufacturers in China. Its main products are TFT-LCD
panels used for TV sets and PC monitors.  As of the end of
February 2006, BOE held a 22.26% stake in TPV Technology
Limited. In 2004, BOE's turnover reached RMB12.4 billion.  OTPV
was a joint venture Company invested by BOE and TPV to produce
displayers.  It accounted for 35.3% of BOE's turnover in 2004.

BOE is a constituent of the Xinhua/ FTSE China 200 and B35
Indices.  As of market close on April 5, 2006, its total A-share
market capitalization and investable capitalization were RMB3.3
billion and RMB670 million respectively.  Its B-share market cap
totaled USD196 million, of which all is investable.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
November 3, 2005, Chinese screen maker BOE Technology Group Co.
Ltd. (BOE) posted a net loss of CNY379.07 million ($47 million)
for the three months through September 2005, versus a net loss
of CNY46.22 million in the same quarter in 2004.  The maker of
thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal-display (TFT- LCD) panels
sank into the red in 2004 after a worldwide glut hammered global
prices for the display panels.

CHAODA MODERN: Moody's Affirms 'Ba3' Ratings
--------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the Ba3 corporate family
rating and Ba3 foreign currency debt rating of Chaoda Modern
Agriculture (Holdings) Ltd (Chaoda).  The ratings outlook
remains positive.  

This rating action follows the Company's announcement to issue
US$173 million convertible bonds, which in Moody's view, has no
material impact on Chaoda's credit profile despite the increased
leverage.

"The proposed convertible bond issuance is for the purposes of
pre-funding the Company's future capex spending, thereby
supporting its aggressive expansion strategy," says Ken Chan, a
Moody's Assistant Vice President/Analyst, adding, "Moreover, the
sound financial profile and healthy operating margin continue to
well position Chaoda at the current rating level."

Moody's notes that Chaoda is projected to generate negative free
cash flow over the next few years due to heavy investments in
acquiring farmland and setting up of related infrastructure.

"But while it is increasing its scale, it needs to also continue
demonstrating its ability to sustain projected yields and
growth.  Otherwise, the Company may need additional funding in
2-3 years time should it continue with its aggressive expansion
strategy," Chan says.

The Ba3 rating continues to reflect Chaoda's credit strengths,
which include:

     * its sound business model, including large-scale
       diversified production bases and strong distribution
       network, which together support its high profit margins;

     * its experienced management and ongoing R&D investments,
       both of which enhance its competitive position;

     * the presence of a supportive government policy, given the
       agricultural sector's importance to China's economy;

     * favorable industry trends with good growth potential
       evident in green/organic agricultural produce; and

     * its sound financial profile.

At the same time, the rating reflects the key credit challenges
facing Chaoda:

     * its overall small scale against the backdrop of a highly
       fragmented industry and earnings volatility, due, in
       turn, to adverse weather and natural disasters;

     * concerns over corporate governance, given the Company's
       short track record as a listed Company and the presence
       of material related-party transactions;

     * ongoing concerns about the implications of the
       resignation of PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) as its joint
       auditor in June 2003, an event which raised uncertainty
       over the quality of the Company's financial reporting,
       but has been partially mitigated by the engagement of
       Baker Tilly H.K. as joint auditor;

     * projected negative free cash flow position due to an
       aggressive growth strategy; and

     * expansions into the more volatile livestock business in
       Inner Mongolia.

The rating would be upgraded if the Company continues to receive
unqualified opinions from its joint auditors and, at the same
time, is able to maintain its current profitability and sound
financial profile.

A rating downgrade is unlikely, given the current positive
outlook.  However, downward rating pressure would emerge with a
qualified opinion on material accounting and operational issues
for FY06; or evidence emerges of cash leakage for the purposes
of funding related companies, or significant margin erosion as
the business expands.

SARASIN RABO: SFC Reprimands Firm for Internal Control Failings
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Futures Commission has reprimanded Sarasin
Rabo Investment Management Limited and its responsible officer,
Simon John Ruckert, for Sarasin's inadequate internal controls.  

The SFC has also agreed to accept a voluntary payment of
$400,000 from Ruckert in settlement of the disciplinary action
against him.

The SFC commenced an inquiry following a report made by Sarasin
that one of its licensed representatives (relationship managers)
had conducted unauthorized transactions in three client
accounts, from October 2002 to March 2003, which resulted in
losses in one account amounting to around US$1 million (Note 2).

The SFC found certain internal control failings in Sarasin which
made it possible for the representative's misconduct and her
concealment of the misconduct from Sarasin. These included:

  -- failure to monitor and supervise the activities of staff
     members adequately;

  -- failure to implement controls to ensure that clients with
     hold mail accounts (Note 3) were notified of uncollected
     mail by independent staff and not by their relationship
     managers;

  -- failure to put in measures to ensure that margin call
     letters were sent independently to clients instead of
     outing them through the relationship managers;

  -- inadequate reporting procedures to ensure that relationship
     managers disclosed client account details at the time they
     placed an order for the London market instead of the
     following day; and

  -- failure to conduct regular reviews of recordings of
     telephone conversations of its relationship managers.

Sarasin's internal control failings also facilitated the
representative to withhold margin call letters from the client
and disregard reminders from Sarasin to inform the client to
collect his hold mail.

At the material time, Ruckert was Sarasin's dealing director
responsible for its compliance.  Although Ruckert did not
directly supervise the representative, he failed to put in place
adequate internal controls for Sarasin to prevent and detect the
misconduct committed by the representative.

In light of these findings, the SFC concludes that Sarasin and
Ruckert have breached the Code of Conduct for Persons Licensed
by or Registered with the SFC and their fitness and properness
has been called into question.  The SFC therefore decides to
reprimand them. In reaching this decision, the SFC has taken
into account that:

  -- Sarasin and Ruckert co-operated with the SFC's
     investigation;

  -- Sarasin has since strengthened its internal controls and
     management supervision;

  -- Sarasin reported the representative's misconduct to the SFC
     and conducted a compliance review;

  -- Sarasin compensated the relevant client; and

  -- Ruckert co-operated with the SFC in settling the
     disciplinary action.

The SFC considers that it is in the interest of the investing
public and in the public interest to settle its disciplinary
action against Ruckert.  Ruckert's voluntary payment will be
paid to the government revenue.

Alan Linning, SFC's Executive Director of Enforcement, said:
"This case illustrates the importance for companies and their
senior management to put in place strong internal controls and
to closely supervise and monitor all staff activities to ensure
compliance.  A strong internal control system will better
protect the interest of the Company and the investing public.
Firms and their management who fail to put in place adequate
internal controls can expect to face disciplinary action."

COAL INDIA: Bharat Coking Jumps Out of the Red After 25 Years
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bharat Coking Coal Limited, considered a weak subsidiary of Coal
India Limited, booked a provisional profit of INR1.56 billion
for fiscal 2005-06, the first time since its inception in 1971,
Sify reports.
  
Bharat Coking chairman and managing director Bhattacherjee
explained that the profit-earning performance included the full
impact of INR2.5 billion per annum of wage revision under
National Coal Wage Agreement.  This is compared to a loss of
INR9.5 billion in 2004-05.  The loss included the arrears of
INR760 crore under NCWA.

The net sales of the company in 2005-06 were provisionally
estimated at INR31.59 billion as against INR28.84 billion.

Mr. Bhattacherjee said that the company had decided to focus
more on coking coal production, as the sales realization was
more from this variety of metallurgical coal.  He also expected
the company to get out of the Board for Industrial and Financial
Reconstruction by 2010-11 when the net worth of the company
would turn positive.

Headquartered in Kolkota India, Coal India Limited
-- http://www.coalindia.nic.in/-- is engaged in the mining of  
coal, coal based products and mining consultancy.  The Group was
incorporated under the Companies Act, 1956 and is wholly owned
by the Government of India.  It recently turned around from
substantial losses in the past due to its e-auction revenues.  
However, it is still saddled with labor problems involving its
senior staff.


DUNLOP INDIA: BSE Reject Relisting Attempt
------------------------------------------
Efforts to revive Dunlop India Limited hit another roadblock
after the Bombay Stock Exchange refused to allow trading in the
Company's securities, The Financial Express reveals.  The BSE
had suspended trading in Dunlop scrip in February 2003.

The Stock Exchange will only allow Dunlop's securities to trade
if it obtains clearance from the Board for Industrial and
Financial Reconstruction, which took the ailing Dunlop under its
arms in the late 90s.

Dunlop's new promoter, Kumar Ruia, is now doubling efforts to
secure BIFR's clearance since he cannot reach settlement with
Dunlop's financiers and investors if the Company is not listed.

Mr. Ruia said that he is ready to request the Court for a
directive, should the BIFR refuse to grant the much-needed
clearance.

Mr. Ruia stressed that the relisting will not only give retail
shareholders an exit route, but will also help in fund-raising
efforts to sustain Dunlop's revival.

Headquartered in Kolkota, India, Dunlop India Limited is
involved principally in manufacturing and distributing
automotive tires and tubes.  The firm's other activities include
manufacturing high-pressure hoses, steelcord belting and
vibration isolators.  The company had reported profit until
March 1997.  In January 1998, the Board of Directors decided
that the Company had become sick due to the necessity of
reversing the earlier decision for sale of some real estate
property of the company through a subsidiary, Dunlop Investment
Limited.  This decision required a reversal of corresponding
entry of INR1,700 million and its reflection in the accounts of
the financial year 1997-98.  After taking this into account, the
Board of Directors decided to refer the Company to Board of
Industrial and Financial Reconstruction and abruptly announced
suspension of Dunlop's operations in both Sahaganj and Ambattur
in February 1998.  The Ministry for Law, Justice and Company
Affairs had also come to the conclusion after inspection of the
Books of Accounts of Dunlop India that there were serious
irregularities and had moved the Company Law Board for
appointment of Government Directors.  In January 2006, the Ruia
Group took over the Company and voted to re-open its plants in
within this year.


INDIA CEMENTS: Mulls Price Hike for May
---------------------------------------
India Cements is considering raising cement prices up to INR20
per bag next month, The Telegraph reports.

The Company declined to confirm the report but acknowledged that
prices are hardening and can go up further.

Sources told The Telegraph that India Cements wants to increase
prices because cement prices per bag down South, where the
Company supplies, is far lower than the INR235 per bag in
Mumbai.

With the southern states expecting a construction boom and most
cement producers having huge capacities, the hike in prices
seems to be imminent, sources said.

Cement prices have moved up in all markets in the last three
months since large-scale construction work and real estate
development have fuelled huge demand for cement, The Telegraph
adds.

Headquartered in Chennai, India, India Cements Limited
-- http://www.indiacements.co.in/-- manufactures and markets  
cement under the brand name Coromandel cement.  The Company was
established in 1946 and the first plant was setup at Sankarnagar
in Tamilnadu in 1949.  Since then it has grown in stature to
seven plants spread over Tamilnadu and Andhra Pradesh.  In 2002,
he Company fell into a deep financial crisis, which prompted it
to undertake debt restructuring plans in 2003.  Faced with the
huge challenges, the company addressed its problems proactively.  
It reduced interest costs, improved the capacity utilization,
implemented voluntary retirement schemes and raised equity.  All
these initiatives helped the firm bring down its debt under
corporate debt restructuring program from a hefty INR1,700 crore
to INR400 crore.

PERTAMINA: Delays Cepu Oil Drilling on Rig Scarcity
---------------------------------------------------
According to The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
March 17, 2006, Exxon Mobil Corporation and PT Pertamina have
signed a Joint Operating Agreement for the Cepu Contract Area
located in East and Central Java.  

The TCR-AP recounts that the signing of the agreement follows
the execution of the Cepu Cooperation Contract in September
2005, and enables the parties to begin the activities and make
the investments required to develop the discovered resources and
further explore the block during the 30-year contract period.

In an update on April 7, 2006, Bloomberg News relates that Exxon
Mobil Corporation and PT Pertamina may delay drilling at the
US$2.6-billion Cepu project until early next year due to a
scarcity of rigs.

The scheme that will operate Cepu failed to secure any of the
four onshore rigs required to develop the field, said Hestu
Bagyo, head of the unit that holds Pertamina's stake.

Both parties had planned to start drilling in September at Cepu,
Indonesia's biggest unexploited oil field that straddles the
border of East and Central Java.

About Pertamina

PT Pertamina (Persero) -- http://www.pertamina.com/-- is a  
wholly state-owned enterprise.  The enactment of Oil and Gas Law
No. 22/2001 in November 2001 and Government Regulation No.
31/2003 has changed its legal status from a special state-owned
enterprise into a Limited Liability Company.  In carrying out
its activities, PT Pertamina implements an integrated system
from upstream to downstream.  Despite reporting a net profit of  
IDR3.03 trillion for the first six months of 2005, Pertamina's
failure to service its financial obligations was pegged as one
of the contributors to Indonesia's decreased income for the
year.  Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has
promised to expedite the overhaul of state oil firm PT Pertamina
in order to increase the country's fuel output.  President  
Yudhoyono said the Company's restructuring program is not
proceeding effectively, as the Company is still experiencing
many difficulties.  He added that he wants to conduct a "real"
restructuring of Pertamina, with clear and measurable phases. On
March 8, 2006, the Indonesian government has appointed Pertamina
marketing director Ari Soemarno as Pertamina's new chief.
Because of Mr. Soemarno's vast experience in managing the
Company's imports and exports of crude oil and oil products, he
was considered the best candidate to replace Pertamina's
President Widya Purnama

JAPAN AIRLINES: Inspection Failure Caused by Mechanic Error
-----------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corporation said its failure to conduct a
required safety inspection on an aircraft last month was due to
a mechanic's misunderstanding of the safety procedures and a
senior inspector's failure to straighten it out, the Asahi
Shimbun reports.

Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport had,
after reprimanding Japan Airlines for not conducting the proper
inspection on a passenger plane, ordered the Company to ground
the aircraft, Kyodo News says.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
March 24, 2006, that the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and
Transport had reprimanded the Company for flying an MD-87
aircraft for 10 days without conducting the proper safety
inspections required on all aircraft.  The airplane had already
operated 41 flights before it was finally inspected.  

The inspection was slated for Feb. 27, 2006, but JAL servicing
staff were not informed of the inspection.  The carrier then
ordered an inspection on March 11, 2006.  It was found out that
the aircraft did not conform to standards hence it was
immediately grounded.

When the safety inspection was finally conducted on March 20,
Asahi Shimbun says, a mechanic skipped a procedure requiring a
special chemical solution, which was not available at the time,
wrongly thinking it was ok to do so.  Instead, he used anohter
procedure to conduct the test, and when a JAL maintenance head
noticed this, he asked the mechanic about it. The mechanic said
there was no problem.  He has since been suspended from his
duties.

Incoming Japan Airlines chief executive Haruka Nishimatsu
apologized for the incident, adding that safety should ba a
major concern for all workers of the Company.

                      About Japan Airlines

Tokyo-based Japan Airlines International Company, Limited
-- http://www.jal.com/en/-- was created as a result of the  
merger of Japan Airlines and Japan Air Systems to boost domestic
coverage.  JAL's international passenger operations incurred
losses in recent years due to negative factors such as the
severe acute respiratory distress syndrome epidemic and
terrorism fears.  Due to a series of safety related incidents,
the JAL Group was subjected to a business improvement order and
administrative warnings relating to assurances on air
transportation safety issued by the Ministry of Land,
Infrastructure and Transport in March 2005.  In the fiscal year
2005-2007, the Company's Medium Term Business Plan stated that
in order to implement the reform of the corporate structure and
the cost structure swiftly, the holding Company and operating
companies are to be integrated. Specifically, in fiscal 2005,
the corporate planning and marketing functions will be
integrated and further steps to eliminate overlapping jobs and
streamline the organization will be taken with a view to
achieving substantial integration to merge the holding company
and the operating company.  In addition, the number of full-time
officers was cut by 30%, and this reform was completed on
April 1, 2005.


NEC CORPORATION: In Talks to Team Up with U.S. Firm
---------------------------------------------------
NEC Corporation is negotiating with electronics firm Matsuhita
Electric Works, Limited and United States-based chipmaker Texas
Instruments on a possible joint venture to create chips for
third-generation mobile phones, Channel NewsAsia reports.

The three firms, which are slated to sign an agreement this
month, plan to set up the joint venture firm in summer this year
to develop chips for NEC and Matsushita, according to Nihon
Keiza business daily.

NEC Electronics, a unit of NEC Corppration, and Matsushita unit
Panasonic Mobile Communications are also involved in the talks,
Reuters News adds.  According to a source familiar with the
matter, the joint venture aims to reduce costs and offer mobile
phones at competitive prices.   

NEC spokesman Toshinori Arai said that while nothing has been
finalized, the companies are in talks for possible cooperation,
and the joint venture firm would need some JPY10 billion in
capital.

YOSHINOYA D&C: Posts Lower Net Loss for 2005 on Improved Sales
--------------------------------------------------------------
Local restaurant chain Yoshinoya D&C Company, Limited, posted a
JPY387-million net loss for 2005 against a whopping JPY758
million net loss the previous year, Crisscross News says.

According to the Japan Times, the Company's menu changes and
aggressive promotions contributed to the decline in net loss.
Yoshinoya was forced to remove its "gyudon" beef-on-rice dishes
in 2004, after Japan imposed an import ban on Canadian and U.S.
Beef, after mad cow disease was discovered in both countries in
2003.  

However, Yoshinoya president Shuji Abe hopes that the beef ban,
which was removed last December but re-imposed after a beef
shipment containing backbone was discovered, would be lifted
this September, otherwise profits would remain flat.

Yoshinoya reported a pre-tax profit of JPY2.18 billion due to a
slight 3.8% increase in sales to JPY122.39 billion, Kyodo News
reveals.  The Company expects to post a JPY2.2 billion net
profit this year, on sales of JPY135.1 billion.

HYUNDAI MOTOR: Probers Summon Chief and Son Over Slush Fund Scam
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on March
31, 2006, that prosecutors raided the headquarters of Hyundai
Motor Co., and three of its subsidiaries -- Glovis Co., Kia
Motors Corporation and Hyundai Autonet Co. -- on March 26, 2006,
as part of their investigation into the Hyundai Motor Group's
alleged involvement in a slush fund scandal and in illegal
political lobbying.

In an updated on Friday, The Korea Herald relates that
prosecutors will summon Hyundai Automotive Group Chairman Chung
Mong-koo and his son Chung Eui-sun to question them about slush
funds created by several of the group's subsidiaries.

The TCR-AP reported earlier that Hyundai Motor's chairman Chung
Mong-koo has left for the United States on April 2, 2006, to
visit several manufacturing and sales facilities in the country.  
Mr. Chung is expected to be back on April 9, 2006.

On April 3, 2006, prosecutors banned Chung Eui-sun from leaving
South Korea.  Mr. Chung Eui-sun is regarded as heir to the auto
empire and is President of two key Hyundai Motor affiliates, Kia
Motors and Hyundai Mobis.

The prosecution also said it has secured the account books of a
Hyundai Automotive Group affiliate that contains details about
alleged slush funds.

The TCR-AP recounts that the Supreme Public Prosecutors Office  
interrogated Chae Yang-ki, president of Hyundai Motor Group's  
Corporate Planning Division, on March 29, 2006, and also  
arrested Glovis chief executive officer Lee Ju-eun over   
allegations that the automaker raised billions of won in slush   
funds to bribe politicians and government officials through   
lobbyist Kim Jae-rok.  Mr. Lee was charged with embezzlement
of KRW6.98 billion of Company money to create slush funds.   

Moreover, the prosecutors have also called in officials from the
Ministry of Construction and Transportation to question them
over suspicious lobbying and for giving authorization for the
expansion of Hyundai group's research center in Yangjae-dong,
Seoul.

About Hyundai Motor

Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, Hyundai Motor Company
-- http://www.hyundai-motor.com/-- has been selling cars in the    
United States since 1986, but it only started selling its heavy
trucks stateside in 1998.  South Korea's number 1 carmaker,
Hyundai produces 14 models of cars and minivans, as well as
trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles.  The Company
reestablished itself as Korea's leading carmaker in 1998 by
acquiring a 51% stake in Kia Motors (since reduced to about
45%).  Hyundai's exports include the Accent and Sonata, while
its Korean models include the Atos subcompact.  The Company also
manufactures machine tools for factory automation and material-
handling equipment.   

In September 2005, Standard & Poor's Rating Services maintained
its long-term BB+ ratings on Hyundai Motor Co. and Kia Motors
Corp. on CreditWatch with positive implications following recent
reports that the Hyundai Group may buy Mando Corp. a Korean auto
parts maker.  Mando has been put up for sale for KRW2 trillion
by JP Morgan Partners and Affinity Capital, which together own
over 70% of the Company.  Despite Hyundai and Kia's continued
improvement of their global market positions, the group
continues to make overly aggressive expansion and acquisition
plans.  These include a recently announced Kia factory in the
U.S. and, of more concern, the W5 trillion-W7 trillion blast
furnaces planned by group Company INI Steel Co.  The CreditWatch
listings will be reassessed within the following two months. If
purchase terms for Mando are solidified during that time, the  
CreditWatch placement will be resolved.  However if the
negotiations are prolonged, Standard & Poor's will affirm the
current 'BB+' ratings until further information is available.


KOREA EXCHANGE: BAI to Probe Lone Star Deal
-------------------------------------------
The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on March
7, 2006, that the Korean Board of Audit and Inspection will
probe Lone Star Funds' US$1.2 billion purchase of a stake in the
Korea Exchange Bank in 2003 was appropriate.

The probe, which is in response to the National Policy Committee
and the National Economy Committee's request, will focus on
alleged charges of the Bank's cheap sale and manipulation of the  
Bank for International Settlement equity rate.

In an update on April 3, 2006, The Korea Times relates that the
Board of Audit and Inspection have summoned some 20 former and
incumbent government officials for questioning this week.

The list of officials include Byeon Yang-ho, a former director-
general of the Ministry of Finance and Economy; Kim Seok-dong,
former director-general of the Financial Supervisory Commission
and now deputy minister of finance economy; and Lee Kang-won,
former Korea Exchange President who currently leads the Korea
Investment Corporation.

BAI wants to determine whether there have been irregularities
such as influence-peddling in the decision making process of
granting Lone Star the status of the largest shareholder of
Korea Exchange three years ago.

According to the Korea Times, if testimonies indicate there has
been some responsibility from higher ups in the government, Kim
Jin-pyo, minister of education and human resources development
who was then minister of finance and economy, and Lee Jung-jae,
former chairman of the Financial Supervisory Commission, would
be summoned for questioning.

About Korea Exchange

Korea Exchange Bank -- http://www.keb.co.kr/english/index.htm--  
was established in January 1967 by the Government originally as
a specialist foreign exchange bank.  It retains its strength in
trade finance and foreign exchange.  In terms of assets, it
ranks sixth among Korea's nationwide commercial banks with 7% of
system assets.  It operates a branch network of 317 domestic and
28 overseas offices.  During the economic crisis, significant
exposures to troubled corporate borrowers led to a deterioration
in the bank's financial health.  However, since then, its
operating performance stabilized, and the bank has reported
eight consecutive quarterly profits since the end of 2003.

CHG INDUSTRIES: Securities Commission Junks Restructuring Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Securities Commission has on April 6, 2006, rejected CHG
Industries Berhad's application in relation to the Proposals
under the Company's Debt and Corporate Restructuring Scheme.

While considering the said application, the SC noted that:

     -- the Proposals do not provide the appropriate benefits
        to the shareholders of CHG whereby upon completion of
        the Proposals, the shareholders of CHG will only hold
        6.72% equity interest in Sinar Tiasa Sdn Bhd;

     -- the Proposals involve among others, the acquisition of
        three companies which are involved in businesses in the
        timber industry. In the competitive timber industry,
        Sinar Tiasa has no certainty of supply of logs due to,
        among others, Sinar Tiasa and its proposed subsidiaries
        not owning a timber concession. Furthermore, one of the
        companies that will be acquired by Sinar Tiasa, that is,
        Rejang Logging Co. Sdn Bhd which is the largest profit
        contributor to the Sinar Tiasa Group, is dependent on
        income derived from one customer, that is Bornion Timber
        (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd; and

     -- there are conflicting interests with the businesses of
        the Sinar Tiasa Group as the promoters are also involved
        in the upstream and downstream businesses in the timber
        industry in other companies that are both listed and
        unlisted on Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.

The Company said it will deliberate on the SC's decision and an
appropriate announcement will be made in due course.

As reported by Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific, CHG
Industries on June 3, 2004, entered into an agreement with
Linmax Group Sdn Bhd to undertake a corporate and debt
restructuring exercise, which involves a capital reduction, the
injection of fresh assets and a transfer of its listing status.

Headquartered in Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia, CHG Industries
Berhad -- http://www.chg.com.my/-- is an investment holding  
company listed on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock
Exchange, Malaysia.  It is the parent company of the CHG
Industries Group, whose principal activity is in the
manufacture, distribution and export of plywood, LVL (Laminated
Veneer Lumber) and other veneer products.  The Company's woes
started when it defaulted on loan facilities in 1999.  In 2004,
the Company has proposed a restructuring exercise, which
involves a capital reduction, the injection of fresh assets and
a transfer of its listing status.  The plywood and veneer
product maker will be transformed into a mechanical and
engineering company through the injection of the assets of
Linmax Group Sdn Bhd.  CHG said the restructuring via Linmax
will enable its existing shareholders to participate in Linmax,
which has income-generating assets, and keep the company listed
on the local bourse.  The proposed restructuring scheme is
expected to be completed this year.

operational cash flow vis-a-vis its debt level and poor showing
in terms of returns on investment since the commencement of the
modernization and expansion of its farms in 2000.  Furthermore,
the poultry industry is presently confronted by the outbreak of
the avian influenza and rising raw material prices, which could
hurt Comsa's earnings and cash flow in the immediate term.

creditors from commencing recovery action. The Scheme was
completed on June 30, 2003.  Included in the Scheme was a debt-
restructuring scheme, which excluded the lease, hire-purchase
liabilities, general unsecured liabilities and amounts owing to
subsidiary and associated companies.  The lease, hire-purchase
and general liabilities were to be addressed in the ordinary

SBBS CONSORTIUM: High Court Hears Application for Stay
------------------------------------------------------
The Kuala Lumpur High Court will hear SBBS Consortium Berhad's
application for restraining order today, April 10, 2006.

As reported by Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific, SBBS on
March 21, 2006, filed an application for a Restraining and Stay
Order so it could:

     -- review and consider the feasibility of the proposals for
        the corporate and debt restructuring scheme;

     -- initiate consultation with SBBS's major creditors in
        relation to a proposed debt settlement; and

     -- engage and seek consultation from appointed consultants
        on the best possible structure to restructure SBBS.

On March 20, 2006, SBBS entered into a 60-day Memorandum of
Understanding with PC Capital Sdn Bhd.  The signing of the MOU
is aimed at setting the intentions of both parties to undertake
a corporate and debt restructuring scheme in order to revive
SBBS' financial and operational performance.

During the 60-day negotiation period, SBBS and PC Capital will
embark on exercises in order to facilitate the implementation of
the Scheme.

TCR-AP said that upon finalization of the negotiation and if the

restructuring agreement before the MOU expires.  

Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, SBBS Consortium Berhad
is engaged in the trade, manufacture and sale of molded and sawn
timber and other wood-based products.  Its other activity is

facilities, the Company had entered into various negotiations
with its bank creditors, and in order to ensure that these
creditors are treated on a pari passu basis, the Company had
ceased making repayments to its bank creditors on an ad-hoc
basis.  As a consequence of this treatment, its bank creditors
have taken various measures to recover their outstanding loans.  
Negotiations between the Company and its bank creditors are
nonetheless, still continuing.  The Company is considering
various sources of new business and funds to address its
financial position, and had on June 24, 2005, appointed Covenant
Equity Consulting Sdn Bhd to advise on its options.  Currently,
the Company is working to implement corporate rehabilitation
exercises to turn its business around.   


SBBS CONSORTIUM: Contributory Files for Stay of Wind-up Order

after SBBS defaulted on a loan facility extended by the Bank.

Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, SBBS Consortium Berhad

SETEGAP BERHAD: Inks Definitive Agreement to Complete Scheme
------------------------------------------------------------
On April 6, 2006, Setegap Berhad entered into a Definitive
Agreement with Calinex Sdn Bhd, Sumatec (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd,
Sumatec Trackworks Sdn Bhd, Untunwell Sdn Bhd and Sumatec
Resources Berhad to set out the corporate objectives of the
parties to the Definitive Agreement and to bind themselves and
to comply with all the terms and conditions of the restructuring
agreement entered into on March 28, 2006.

The Definitive Agreement will set out the role of Untungwell Sdn
Bhd and the interim arrangements between the parties up to the
completion of the Proposals under the Company's Corporate
Restructuring Scheme.  Untungwell will be the newly incorporated
company, which will eventually assume Setegap's listing status.

The interim arrangements involve amongst others, secondment of
key resources by Setegap to Sumatec (Sarawak) and Sumatec
Trackworks to commence project planning and scheduling of
contracts and to participate together in evaluating future
contracts, and provision of financial arrangement by Sumatec
Resources Berhad to Sumatec (Sarawak) and Sumatec Trackworks
including but not limited to procurement of bid bonds and
performance security to enable Sumatec (Sarawak) and Sumatec
Trackworks to complete the awarded contracts.

The Definitive Agreement is part of the Company's Corporate
Restructuring Exercise, which include;

     * a proposed capital reduction and consolidation;
     * proposed share exchange;
     * proposed debt settlement;
     * proposed transfer of listing;
     * proposed arrangement involving Calinex Sdn Bhd; and
     * proposed subscription of new shares in Sumatec (Sarawak)
       Sdn Bhd and Sumatec Trackworks Sdn Bhd.

                      About Setegap Berhad

Headquartered in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, Setegap Berhad's
principal activities are construction and maintenance of roads,
railways and building, including services rendered on quarrying.  
The Company's other activities include manufacturing and selling
of road construction equipment, asphalt plants, mixing plants,
asphalt emulsions and premix.  The Group also provides
mechanical and electrical services, leases machinery and
investment holding.

Tight policies implemented by the Government in containing the
effect of the financial crisis in 1997/98 had affected certain
sectors of the economy, inter-alia, the construction and
property sectors.  As a result, the Company's cash flow and
profitability were adversely affected.  In August 1999, Setegap
had sought the assistance of the Corporate Debt Restructuring
Committee set up by the Government with its secretariat at Bank
Negara Malaysia on the restructuring of the Company and certain
of its subsidiaries' debts amounting to MYR95.29 million. The
Company had in October 2000 entered into a debt restructuring
agreement with its creditors.

As an integral part of the Company's debt restructuring scheme
at that time, the Company proposed a rights issue of Setegap
Shares, a restricted issue of shares in Setegap and a private
placement to raise fresh equity capital to pay its financial
obligations.  However, in light of the bearish market
conditions, which had adversely affected the Company's share
price between 2000 and 2001, the fund raising proposals were
aborted as the shares were being traded below par value.

As an alternative proposal to address the share price problem,
the Company undertook a fund raising exercise was to provide the
Group with additional working capital, repayment of bank
borrowings and to provide security for the performance bond
facilities necessary for its projects.  In June 2003, the
proposals were aborted as Setegap's management's was of the
opinion that a more comprehensive proposal was required due to
the lack of contracts in the market.  In addition, the current
poor financial health of the Company has further compounded the
problem of obtaining new contracts as the lack of sufficient
working capital has limited its ability to tender for new
contracts.

Due to the unsuccessful attempts by the Company to raise funds
to regularize its debt problems, the debt restructuring
agreement in October 2000 was technically in default in 2003.
Setegap and its subsidiaries had suffered losses for the past
four consecutive financial years since the financial year ended
December 31, 2002, which had consequently led to a negative
unaudited shareholders' fund of MYR98.25 million as of December
31, 2005.

The Board had on November 11, 2005, announced that the Company
had been served with a notice to show cause by Bursa Securities
on the delisting of the securities of the Company.  Without a
scheme to regularize its financial position, Setegap will risk
being delisted.  The current proposals will therefore be a
revitalization scheme for the Setegap Group.


TRADEWINDS CORPORATION: Units Falls Into Voluntary Liquidation
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Tradewinds Corporation Berhad on April
4, 2006, passed a resolution to voluntarily wind up its
subsidiaries:

     * TCB OUE Cruises Sdn Bhd;
     * Malaysia Timber Exports Sdn Bhd;
     * TCB Services Sdn Bhd;
     * TCB Engineering Sdn Bhd; and
     * TCB Komputer Sdn Bhd.

Subsequently, Sathiea Seelan a/l Manickam of Messrs Anuarul
Azizan Chew & Company was appointed as liquidator of the dormant
companies.

The liquidation is pursuant to the streamlining of Tradewind's
structure and does not have material impact on the Group's
operations and results.

Tradewinds Corporation Berhad -- formerly known as Pernas
International Holdings Berhad -- is one of Malaysia's largest
and most dynamic investment holding company. The group is
focused on a diverse range of business activities, which include
plantations, hotels, manufacturing, and properties, and aims to
be the premier investment company.  The Group has entered into a
restructuring scheme to settle debts, curb losses and streamline
its operations.  In 2004, the Group's debt was significantly
restructured with the reorganization of the hotel businesses.
The Company also unveiled a new logo after its change of name in
July 2004, in line with its corporate re-branding exercise.  The
Group divested some non-core assets in line with its objective
to streamline its businesses.  In February 2005, the
acquisitions of property development land to diversify earnings
and improve cash flow were completed.  Despite this, the Group's
debt level is still deemed substantial relative to its
capitalization.  Although Tradewinds Corp's cashflow is
envisaged to be able to comfortably cover interest payments of
its bonds, the Group would still have to rely on debt
refinancing or disposal of assets to meet its principal
obligations when they fall due.


TRU-TECH HOLDINGS: Court Grants 90-day Restraining Order
--------------------------------------------------------
The Johor Bahru High Court on April 6, 2006 extended the
Restraining Order for Tru-Tech Holdings Berhad and its
subsidiaries, Tru-Tech Electronics (M) Sdn Bhd and Tru-Tech
Technology Sdn Bhd, from March 21, 2006 through June 18, 2006.

The Company obtained the Restraining Order to implement its plan
to regularize its financial condition.

As reported by Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific, the
Tru-Tech Holdings unveiled a proposed restructuring scheme on
December 31, 2004.

Headquartered in Ulu Tiram Johor, Malaysia, Tru-Tech Holdings
Berhad's principal activity is the manufacturing of electronic
components and products.  Its other activities include
development and distribution of switch-mode power supplies and
investment holding.  The Group operates in Malaysia, Singapore,
United States and United Kingdom.  On May 27, 2004, Tru-Tech
announced a series of proposed corporate exercises to address
its financial frailty.  These include the incorporation of a new
entity as Tru-Tech's holding company, and the disposal of its
existing contract-assembly business to a third party.  Much of  
Tru-Tech's future performance will hinge on its ability to
restructure its debts and resolve its financial woes.

LAFAYETTE MINING: Violates 12 Environmental Requirements
--------------------------------------------------------
Lafayette Philippines Incorporated, a local unit of Australian
firm Lafayette Mining Company, violated 12 major conditions of
its environmental compliance certificate, ABS-CBN News relates,
citing former environment secretary Heherson Alvarez.

According to Mr. Alvarez, LPI was required to build a tailings
dam with a 5 million metric-ton impounding capacity, but
instead, it built a dam with a capacity that had 25% of the
capacity specified in its feasibility study.  The Company failed
to provide a cyanide destruction circuit to allow its waste
tailings to pass before being stored in a dam.

Mr. Alvarez, the Manila Times says, reprimanded Lafayette for
not complying with the standards of the environmental
certificate he had approved in 2001.  He added that the
Department of Environment and Natural Resources should
constantly monitor the operations of mining firms.

                        About Lafayette

Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, Lafayette Mining,
Incorporated -- http://www.lafayettemining.com/-- has been  
listed on the Australian Stock Exchange since August 1997.  It
focuses on developing a polymetallic project involving copper,
gold, zinc and silver on the Island of Rapu-Rapu in the
Philippines, through Lafayette Mining Philippines, Inc.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources' former
secretary, Mike Defensor, closed Lafayette Philippines in 2005
when the Company's mine tailings were accidentally spilled into
the Albay Gulf last October, killing thousands of fish and
destroying the livelihood of fishermen in the area.  The Company
was also fined PHP10.7 million for violating the Clean Water Act
and its environmental compliance certificate.

Troubled Company Reporter reported on April 7, 2006, that a
fact-finding body created by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
last month to investigate the recent mining spills at Lafayette

NATIONAL FOOD: Buys Raw Sugar for Consumption
---------------------------------------------
The National Food Authority has started buying raw or brown
sugar from the Capiz Sugar Central in President Roxas, Capiz, as
part of a program to purchase at least 0.05% of the total sugar
produced in the milling firm, Philippine Information Agency
says.

Under the program ordered by President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo,
the NFA provincial office was given PHP1.5 million to purchase
up to 58,000 kilograms or 1, 160 bags of raw sugar; so far, the
agency has bought 700 bags at PHP950 per bag.

Information Officer Edna Artates said the NFA will buy "B-2"
sugar reserved for the agency allotted by the Sugar Regulatory
Administration on a weekly basis, in order to provide an
adequate supply of sugar to the residents of Capiz.

                 About National Food Authority

Headquartered in Quezon City, Philippines, National Food
Authority -- http://www.nfa.gov.ph/-- is a government  
organization regulating the rice and corn industry by
stabilizing grain supply and prices and maintaining food
security in cereals.  NFA is among the state-owned firms, which
push up the country's outstanding public sector debt.

In 2005, the agency incurred an additional PHP6-billion debt to
bankroll cost of rice and corn importation, as well as payment
of import duties.   The Company is seeking a private sector
takeover of its importation role so it could gradually make a
turnaround from its PHP22-billion loss in 2005.

On March 13, 2006, the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific
reported that the Company is slated to post a PHP8 billion loss
for the business year 2006.


NATIONAL FOOD: Imports More Rice for Public Consumption
-------------------------------------------------------
According to the National Food Authority, there is an adequate
supply of rice in Bicol due to the arrival of up to one million
bags of rice imported from Vietnam, Philippine Information
Agency reveals.

NFA Bicol assistant regional director Jose Guevarra disclosed
that Camarines Sur, Albay, Masbate, Sorsogon, Camarines Norte
and Catandanues all received bags of imported rice.  In Bicol,
local production cannot keep up with consumer demand, PIA
reports.  The imported rice would be sold at PHP900 per bag, or
PHP18 per kilo, in order to make it affordable to consumers.

Mr. Guevarra said the National Food Agency prepares for the
possibility of typhoons and other calamities, as well as the La
Nina phenomenon, in importing rice for public consumption.  He
further added that due to the increase in population and the
lack of farming land for rice planting, the Government has to
import rice from neighboring countries to meet national demand.

NATIONAL POWER: Catanduanes Seeks to Stop Impending Rate Hike
-------------------------------------------------------------
Catanduanes governor Leandro Verceles, Jr. presented a petition
to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo to delay an upcoming 52%
rise in power rates by the National Power Corporation, the
Philippine Inquirer reports.

More than 33,000 consumers signed the petition, which stated
that the residents of Catanduanes were still adjusting to higher
prices brought on by fuel price increases and the 12% value-
added tax on goods.  According to consumers, the affordability
index that National Power used as a basis to raise rates was
unfair.  They added that most of them would not be able to
afford a higher power rate.

National Power is slated to issue an Energy Regulatory
Commission-approved power rate of PHP5.64 per kilowatt-hour
starting this month, from the current rate of PHP3.71 per
kilowatt-hour.  The new rates will be reflected in consumers'
electric bills this May.

The Inquirer reveals the energy commission had on December 16,
2005, approved Napocor's application of a socially acceptable
generation rate for areas covered by its Small Power Utilities
Group, such as Catanduanes, Masbate, Palawan, among others, so
that a new provider could recover costs and seek a return on
investment.  Local cooperatives and multi-sector organizations
opposed the move, but the commission ruled in favor of Napocor.

                      About National Power

Headquartered in Quezon City, Philippines, National Power
Corporation -- http://www.napocor.gov.ph/-- is a state-owned  
utility that builds and operates nuclear, hydroelectric,
thermal, and alternative power generating facilities.  It works
with independent producers under a build-operate-transfer
program.  With a generating capacity of more than 11,500
megawatts, Napocor sells electricity to distributors and
industrial companies.  To comply with the privatization bill
approved by the Philippine Congress, the Company has begun
selling off its generation assets to help pay for the utility's
estimated debt of PHP600 billion.  It also separated its
transmission operations into a new subsidiary, the National
Transmission Corporation.

National Power first incurred losses in 1998 after the Asian
financial crisis and expensive contract terms from independent
power producers.  Aside from the PHP29.9 billion loss in 2004,
the Company posted a net loss of PHP117 billion in 2003.

The Government absorbed National Power's PHP200 billion debt,
which was incurred when the government-owned-and-controlled
corporation adopted international accounting standards, forcing
the Company to report its foreign exchange losses.

Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
April 5, 2006, that National power posted a PHP16 million profit
for the first time in seven years, on the Energy Regulation
Commission's approval of a rate increase, the use of an improved
fuel mix and better fuel prices.

TANAYONG: Court to Decide on Rehab Amendment on April 24
--------------------------------------------------------
The Central Bankruptcy Court will release the order regarding
Tanayong Public Company Limited's petition to amend its
reorganization plan on April 24, 2006.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter- Asia Pacific on
March 7, 2006, the amendment was approved at the creditors'
meeting held on February 28, 2006, and about 69.16% of the
creditors voted for the amendment of the reorganization plan.  

The amended plan was submitted to the Central Bankruptcy Court
for approval and was fixed for mention on April 3, 2006.

THAI AIRWAYS: Acting President Guarantees Transparency
------------------------------------------------------
Acting president of Thai Airways International Public Company
Limited assured members of the labor union that the selection of
new president would not have political intervention, The Nation
relates.

According to Somchainuk Engtrakul, a committee has been set up
to look over the selection process.  However, the committee has
not chosen anyone from among four internal candidates who passed
the first round.

Union leader Somsak Srinual pointed out that the union wants one
of the four internal candidates to become Thai Airways'
president.  Mr. Somsak said that the union will once again
gather at the Company headquarters on April 12, if they see that
the committee has not done any move.

Two directors of Thai Airways have resigned as the union calls
for their removal over conflict of interest.  

Mr. Somsak said neither Olarn Chaipravat nor Vichit
Suraphongchai were qualified to remain on the board, because
they held shares in or were in the same industry as Thai Airways
or belonged to companies competing against the airline.

The two resigned directors also failed to notify shareholders on
their appointment date that they were directors of Shin
Corporation Plc, which is a shareholder of Thai AirAsia.

The union has demanded for a repayment of the fees both
directors received from the Company.

The union has also called for the head office to remain at
Vibhavadi-Rangsit Road, citing inconvenience to employees
needing transport once it is moved to Suvarnabhumi Airport.

Aside from that the union also questioned the need for two
airports, which are Don Muang and Suvarnabhumi when both are
serving the same city.

last year after it plunged to a loss of THB4.78 billion in the
