Chinese-Canadian billionaire Xiao Jianhua, who went missing in Hong Kong five years ago, was due to go on trial in China on Monday, the Canadian embassy in Beijing said.

China-born Xiao, known to have links to China’s Communist Party elite, has not been seen in public since 2017 after he was investigated amid a state-led conglomerate crackdown.

The specifics of the probe haven’t been disclosed by officials. Xiao was whisked away in a wheelchair from a luxury Hong Kong hotel in the early hours with his head covered, a source close to the tycoon told Reuters at the time. Read more: Where is Xiao Jianhua?

IMF discussions continued with aim to reach Staff-Level Agreement: Finance Ministry
COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lankan authorities have engaged in discussions with the IMF with a view towards entering into an Extended Financing Facility (EFF) to support Sri Lanka's macroeconomic reform programme. After the Spring Meetings with the IMF in April 2022, a virtual mission took place in early May, followed by an IMF mission to Colombo from 20th to 30th June, the Ministry of Finance said.Moreover, the Finance Ministry informed that discussions continued virtually with a view to reaching a Staff Level Agreement (SLA), while substantial progress was made during discussions on the fiscal, monetary and structural reforms necessary to stabilize the economy.Social unrest and political instability which led to several changes in administration since May delayed making a significant progress towards reaching a SLA, the Finance Ministry said.However, with the formation of the new government, technical discussions between the Sri Lankan authorities and the IMF have now resumed with a view to finalising the few remaining policy matters that need to be agreed upon prior to reaching a SLA. A Staff Level Agreement would be an important milestone towards IMF Board approval for the EFF programme, which in turn would help unlock bridging finance to support much needed external financing for Sri Lanka.In parallel. Sri Lankan authorities are working with Debt Restructuring Advisors, Lazard and Clifford Chance, to reach consensus on debt restructuring arrangement with creditors.
