The municipality of Vir has started a three-month control of illegal landlords

first_img“We carry out actions in order to primarily protect all legal landlords and all our citizens who are conscientiously and legally engaged in tourism. During the three summer months, we will conduct a detailed registration of all guests, commercial and non-commercial, in the field, because our ultimate goal is to suppress and eradicate undeclared work.”Says the director of the Vir Tourist Board, Srdjan Liverić.  “Our task is to provide tourists and all guests of the island with a top tourist and catering service and to create programs and facilities to make their stay on the island as beautiful and fun as possible. A few years ago, we raised the standard of events at the Vir Summer to the highest possible level, which was recognized not only by our guests, but also by all residents of Zadar County who visit the island as a picnic destination in the summer season. The reason is simple: there is always something going on at Vir”Points out the director of Vir tourism Kristina Perić. Also, just as illegal renters do not pay tourist tax, the same amount is not poured into the municipal treasury, from which funds are allocated for the promotion and development and arrangement of the entire infrastructure. Precisely with the aim of combating illegal renters from the end of June in the Municipality of Vir, they started intensive quarterly tourist controls with the ultimate goal of combating the gray economy. Finally, another interesting fact is that there is currently no hotel in Vir, and all guests are accommodated in private accommodation. Illegal landlords are the biggest threat to legal landlords who pay all their obligations to the state. Apart from the fact that illegal landlords do not pay taxes and all other levies prescribed by law, they also lower prices and are therefore unfair competition. From 27.06. Municipal Police of the Municipality of Vir, TZO VIR, State Inspectorate and MIA of the Department for Foreigners control the registration of tourists, weekenders and their guests in the settlements Kozjak, Pedinka, Site, Torovi and Šepunatka, carry out increased control of registration of tourists, weekenders and their guests .center_img In the first six tourist months, Vir achieved better statistical indicators of tourist arrivals and overnight stays than in the record year of 2018, so with 363.671 overnight stays (357.654 last year) and 30.242 arrivals of domestic and foreign guests (last year 30.136) it set new tourist records. It is interesting that the Municipality of Vir is the only tourist destination that does not fight against illegal landlords in such an intensive way. Also, the question always arises: Do you want to report a neighbor who is illegally renting an apartment to guests? Why not, because this is how you turn out to be fools. While you pay all obligations, from VAT, sojourn tax, etc.… others do not, and such a neighbor is your direct competition. As they point out from the Municipality of Vir, the action is part of a three-month intensive control that will be carried out in all Vir settlements with the ultimate goal of combating the gray economy in tourism and protecting all renters who duly fulfill their legal obligations.

Milo Yiannopoulos forthcoming memoir will not be published in Australia

first_imgIt has been announced that the anticipated memoir by far-right British commentator Milo Yiannopoulos will not be published in Australia. The news was revealed by the Australian division of publishing house Simon & Schuster, who due to their local publishing program said they in many instances do not publish books from other territories and markets, and in turn would not be stocking or distributing copies of Dangerous.Yiannopoulos, who is the senior editor for far-right news and opinion website Breitbart News, has caused a lot of controversy in recent years over his anti-Islamic views and stance against immigration. His memoir has been described as a substantive examination of the issues surrounding political correctness and free speech.Due to be published in the United States later this year on June 13, those in Australia wishing to get their hands on a copy will still be able to do so, only obtainable from the United States via Amazon or a local Australian supplier.Every bookseller does have the right to decide which books they wish to stock in their shops however, and owner of Pages & Pages and online retailer Boomerang Books, Jon Page was the first Down Under to publicly declare he would not be stocking or promoting Dangerous.“The election and inauguration of Donald Trump as President of the United States has seen a resurgence of fascism and right wing rhetoric the likes of which I didn’t think we would ever see again,” Mr Page told Fairfax Media on Thursday.“I do not agree with Milo Yiannopoulos’ far right views and don’t believe there is any benefit in helping share his views in our society.“While I am a passionate believer in free speech and would never ban a book, views such as Milo Yiannopoulos’ should not be allowed to take root in our society.”Despite his personal views, Mr Page did add that customers would be welcome to put a special order in for the book. Managing director of Readings, Mark Rubbo has taken a difference stance on the matter of stocking the memoir, which he confirmed will be available in store.“I don’t believe in censorship. So we stock the likes of Andrew Bolt and Keith Windschuttle. We keep Mein Kampf on the shelves,” Mr Rubbo said.“I think it’s our job to sell books and I think some of our customers – not many, I hope – may be interested in Milo Yiannopoulos’ book. You stock many people you disagree with.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more
