first_imgZidane is on his way to do it again, to inject the talent again. He got it in the double season and now points in the same direction. The diagnosis of the bench, which makes a team resistant, was a success. From Areola, as providential as Courtois, to Vinicius, a scorer’s apprentice, through Brahim, who feels like a cupbearer. Of course, the night went again to Jovic, a non-existent nine.Zaragoza is still spilling blue blood, even prostrated in Second, even full of substitutes, even when it is something else (the ascent). The best of its history lies in the Cup, the trophy that has won more times, and honored his story within its limitations, because to pass was impossible dream, more before this Madrid, in unstoppable inertia. Nothing helps win more than win.The game dawned very cloudy for those of Víctor Fernández. He opened gas at the Madrid exit and took advantage after five minutes. The matter began as usual, in a satin and crossed ball of Kroos who did not put the heel Vinicius but Varane almost empty door. It was the tenth goal of a white defender this season. Mouse was still as a trailing column.Zidane left Casemiro in Madrid, without the one who does not leave or throw the garbage, and to compensate put the titular defense and He folded the guard body in the center of the field, with Kroos and Valverde at the same height and James promoted to midpoint. He also widened the eleven with two extremes, Lucas and VInicius, and with Jovic pointed. Three radically different players. Lucas is an analgesic for all fields and all parties. To put it is not to be wrong. He scored the second goal almost as center forward. With Vinicius, Madrid expects someone (Zidane, preferably) to be able to enrich uranium. It brings spontaneity, but It is difficult for him to make the leap from a mischievous footballer to a transcendent footballer. Always leave something, something is always missing. This time he fastened the task with a good goal. Jovic, on the other hand, is an iceberg. There, hidden among the centrals, in the most absolute anonymity, watch the season go by. It is very distant from the team and always out of place. It is, in short, the hologram of that Bundesliga super goal scorer. Before the break he touched fewer balls than Areola. At that point it was already a trending topic. The first in the party’s credit titles was Kroos, the Madrid mobility agent, double assistant. A reborn and an absolute success of Zidane.Between the first two goals of Madrid, Zaragoza B had its moment, led by Kagawa, the great click, which this time was the sharpest of Victor’s team. A shot of his justified the alignment of Areola, to which the Cup gives vidilla. Nothing more tolerated Madrid, whose defensive strength has a viral origin: it arrived with Valverde, infected Courtois and is now a pandemic.Brahim and BenzemaIn favor of marker Madrid confirmed its superiority, which in addition to technique was already emotional. For three months he feels that nothing bad can happen to him. However, Víctor Fernández did not draw a white flag. In the absence of half an hour got Luis Suarez, the team scorer and his flag player. The public asked for it, which filled La Romareda with greater hope. But there was also a Madrid pass, among other things because Ramos is now an impenetrable captain.In any case, the arrival of the Colombian upset the game somewhat. Kagawa again enjoyed an occasion and James, who did not knock the door down either, wanted to tie a petroleum jelly that was high. Vinicius was also relieved with a great goal. He built the wall with James and gently saved Mouse’s exit. Start learning the trade. After Areola made a miraculous stop, Brahim set the first 0-4 stone with a fancy pass and Benzema regained the lost goal. Madrid arrives at the draw for quarters and the white-tipped derby.last_img read more

first_imgThe Concessions Working Group’s (CSG) attention has been drawn to the startling and unfortunate allegations of corruption and bribe-taking involving very senior members of the Liberian government as detailed in the Global Witness latest report titled, ‘The Deceivers.’CWG is a network of local and international non-governmental organizations working on the Liberian extractives sector that seeks to influence pro-poor national policies so that the natural resources is assured for the most vulnerable segments of the population.In a press release CWG says while it recognizes the right of the President to utilize several means to tackle corruption, it is important that any such process is credible and does not inadvertently undermine the fight againstcorruption. CWG, therefore, wants President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf to promptly dissolve the taskforce and allow the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission to assume exclusive jurisdiction, the release states.In similar direction, the CWG calls on the LACC to proactively assume its statutory mandate as prescribed by law. While other processes may assist the fight against corruption, CWG believes it is the LACC’s duty as the principle anti-corruption agency to lead any effort to tackle official corruption.The CWG furthermore wants international and or bilateral actors to impose serious conditionality for aid support until the current investigation is concluded with proper actions. Because of the gravity of these alleged actions as well as the high levels of government at which those accused are placed, CWG requests that the above actions be taken in a timely manner by various public stakeholders to ensure credible, speedy and fair resolution of this matter in line with law.As for the Presidential Task Force, the release said CWG believes that the appointment of Fonati Kofa as head of the taskforce severely undermines the integrity of it and exposes it to public disrespect. Cllr. Kofa is a former convict in the United States of America involving multiple counts of fraud by betraying a fiduciary duty, the press release states.CWG says it is especially concerned not only because corruption is a cancer that is viciously eroding the fabric of Liberia and destroying the moral universe but also because the alleged transactions involve a potential mining concession, which firmly places it within the extractives sector as a key concern for the group. CWG believes natural resources can be a force for inclusive development and progress, but if managed with a lack of accountability as the Global Witness report stringently advances, natural resource exploitation can fuel conflict and public discontent.It also reminds public officials and policymakers that these new allegations by Global Witness suggest a pattern of official negligence and misconduct. It can be recalled a few years ago, the British auditing firm Moore Stephens reported that close to 90 percent of concessions were non-compliant with Liberian laws, said the release.These new allegations seem to be emphatically supporting those conclusions.The CWG also calls on all the accused to engage the LACC in the thinking that an accusation is not a statement of guilt, which can only be adjudged through a court of competent jurisdiction.CWG comprises of Sustainable Development Institute, Center for Transparency and Accountability in Liberia (Cental), Trust Africa, Rights and Rice Foundation, Liberia Media Center, Save My Future Foundation, Actions for Genuine Democratic Alternative (Agenda), Institute of Research and Democratic Development and National Youth Movement for Transparent Elections (Naymote).Others are Foundation for Human Rights and Democracy (FIND), Catholic Justice and Peace Commission (JPC), Liberia Extractive Industries and Transparency Initiative (LEITI), National Resource Management Consortium, Publish What You Pay-Liberia, Center for Media Studies and Peace Building (Cemesp) and Liberia Media for Democratic Initiatives (LMDI).

first_imgTwo sergeants attached to the Finance Department of the Guyana Police Force were detained on Wednesday and remain under close arrest at the Tactical Services Unit, Eve Leary, as investigations continue into an alleged fraud. According to a source close to the investigation, the ranks are being investigated for alleged conspiracy to commit fraud. The source said that the ranks were called in for questioning on Wednesday after a number of irregularities pertaining to the accounting system at the Guyana Police Force appeared to have been compromised. According to the source, the two sergeants have been working within the finance department for a number of years. The source related that the irregularities found are with respect to monies and vouchers for ranks, who would have performed extra duties and were to receive additional payments. Among the duties some ranks were to be paid for were for working at shows, cricket games and other national events. Guyana Times was told that the parents of one rank and other relatives close to the other rank were called in for questioning on Friday afternoon.“This is all part of the investigation process. We are dealing with serious allegations here,” the source said. In the past, police ranks complained that they were either short-changed or in other instances, not paid at all for extra duties. There are also claims by some that they would sign for the monies but those monies are not given to them. “There are lots of allegations and [they] are all being investigated. Information is being gathered right now after which charges will follow if necessary. We are carrying a very thorough investigation because this has been going on for quite some time and we are leaving no stone unturned,” the source said. Efforts on Friday afternoon to contact Crime Chief, Deputy Commissioner Lyndon Alves and Deputy Commissioner with responsibility for administration Paul Williams all proved futile. The Guyana Police Force has not yet released an official statement on the matter.Just recently, Police Commissioner Leslie James had urged police ranks to desist from accepting bribes and any involvement in unlawful activities, stating that they will be “penalised.” The Top Cop had made these comments while addressing the opening of a training programme at the Officers’ Training Centre, Eve Leary, where he also stated that he is looking for a change in performance of ranks and fewer allegations of corruption. He added that while the force will be engaging particular departments to tackle the issue of corruption; if the ranks believe that their salaries are too small, they should tender their resignation.“If you’re not comfortable with your salaries, leave the job. You came on, you were told what is being offered and you decided to become an agent of the Force. How come you have an issue with your remuneration,” the Commissioner stated.last_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LOS ANGELES – A Los Angeles Superior Court judge Wednesday again upheld a Whittier city ordinance that blocked Rome Fine Dining, former Ibiza Steak and Lounge, from selling alcoholic beverages. Judge David Yaffe made his ruling despite a plea from Roger Jon Diamond, attorney for Rome Fine Dining, that city officials had lied about one of the reasons for revoking the restaurant’s conditional-use permit. Without the permit, Rome Fine Dining can’t sell alcoholic beverages. Since losing its liquor license, the club has been catering to teenagers. Diamond asked Yaffe to allow the club to continue selling alcoholic beverages until the actual lawsuit is heard some time next year. As one of the reasons for revoking the permit, city officials had said there was a stabbing in the early morning hours of Aug. 14 at Rome Fine Dining. But this week, officials said there was no stabbing. The unidentified man, who was injured, was instead hit on the head by a bottle thrown at him. The new information didn’t change Yaffe’s ruling on Oct. 26 when he originally refused to overturn the city’s revocation. “The overwhelming evidence is that this establishment is a constant problem,” Yaffe said. “The stabbing or bottle being thrown is part of the continuum, not one isolated incident,” he said. “It is not in the public interest to allow the establishment to continue to operate.” Diamond asked Yaffe to change his Oct 26 ruling after the new information was revealed. “Why should one bottle be justification to destroy a business?” Diamond asked. “This is a business that had a bottle thrown once in three to four years.” But Kimberly Hall Barlow, attorney for the city, said the Aug. 14 incident was serious. “(The victim) was held and beaten by people,” Barlow said. “He was carried out by employees with no call for aid.” There also have been other problems during the past years, she said. “There have been 429 calls for service,” she said referring to a period from August 2001 to May 2005. “They’ve been for (driving under the influence), urinating in public, stabbings and physical assaults.” Wednesday’s court action followed a City Council meeting Tuesday night in which the council approved a revised resolution that took out the allegation of the stabbing. During the hearing, Diamond cross-examined Mayor Greg Nordbak about his telling of being present the night of Aug. 13 and morning of Aug. 14. mike.sprague@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3022last_img read more
