Empty lots found at addresses of some ‘new’ registrants – GECOM Commissioner

first_imgH2H verificationField officers who conducted the verification exercise of the 20,000+ names listed as new registrants who were captured during the scrapped House-to-House (H2H) Registration process have found empty lots at the addresses on record for those persons.Commissioner Robeson BennThis is according to Opposition-nominated Commissioner at the Guyana Elections Commission, Robeson Benn.He told Guyana Times that they were informed by the party’s scrutineers who worked along with the GECOM staff during the exercise that there were instances where they went to the addresses to verify the names and were met with empty lots.“There were no buildings on the lots where people were said to be…,” he related.However, the Commissioner could not give an exact figure of how many such instances were recorded.Benn indicated that the Commission had a meeting on Monday and they were updated on the five-day verification exercise. However, he said it information provided was not “very helpful”.“I have been told that there is information elsewhere that perhaps some of these persons don’t exist. I can’t speak to the amount. It might be a smaller number. But I’m saying that’s the kind of breakdown we’re expecting from GECOM which should have been provided in the first place. But what we were provided with is just a general summary of the data – using what they confirmed and not confirmed and so on. But beyond that, no informative presentation of the data to be able to get to quick decisions on what to do with the information,” he contended.Additionally, Benn noted that he has seen a few figures of some areas where there were in fact duplicates.“…Despite all of the checks, which had been done twice to scrub the information which was taken [from the H2H exercise], there were persons who had been put down as being registered again,” he stated.According to the Opposition Commissioner, duplication was one of the issued that his party, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), had raised in the arguments against the conduct of the H2H exercise, which he noted has in fact impaired efforts to do any elections preparations.“There were strong arguments against the doing of the verification exercise from the other side, which I think by the findings of this exercise done on 16,000 alone, shows the type of problems we were warning against and expected would be there on our side,” he pointed out.Nevertheless, the even-member GECOM Commission is expected to meet again on Friday to discuss the findings of the verification exercise.Some 370,000 registrations obtained during the scrapped H2H exercise, which ran from July 20 to August and was objected to by the Opposition, were sent overseas to be cross-matched with the National Register of Registrants Database (NRRD) in order to filter out the duplicates.However, it was recently reported that international digital security company, Gemalto, indicated that some 37,300 were new registrants who are eligible for voting, that is, they are above the age of 18. But an internal check conducted by GECOM showed that approximately 17,000 of those “new registrants” were already on the voters’ list and some even voted in the past.The remaining 20,000 “new names” were up for further verification. Recently, it was reported that the Government-nominated Commissioners were pushing to have a sample survey done from a sample size of 10 per cent from the 20,000 to verify these new names before they go on the voters’ list – a process which the PPP Opposition had objected to.Last week, GECOM Chair, Justice Claudette Singh cast a tie-breaking vote in favour with the Opposition Commissioners to have a field verification exercise of all 20,555 names listed as new registrants.last_img read more

Soccer: Magnet for defenders

first_imgDefenders are flocking to Khatib for good reason. The Highland High of Palmdale senior forward leads the Bulldogs’ boys’ soccer team with 22 goals and 13 assists, including a late-season scoring flurry that lifted Highland to the third Golden League championship in program history. After scoring four goals in three games last week during the final stretch of the regular season, Khatib looks to extend his hot streak when he makes his playoff debut today. The Bulldogs, who hadn’t been to the postseason since 2004, open the Southern Section Div. I playoffs at home against Harvard-Westlake of Studio City. No teammate has scored more than six goals all season. When Khatib isn’t starring for the Bulldogs, he plays for the SCU Barcelona club team that won the 2006 championship at the prestigious Nomad Thanksgiving tournament. He plans to play in college at Loyola Marymount. “Sharif is one of the best pure finishers that I have seen come along in recent years,” LMU associate head coach Mathes Mennell said. Highland’s first-year boys’ coach Lemuel Galvao didn’t take long to realize there was a lot more to like about Khatib. “His strength is everything,” Galvao said. “He’s got height, he’s got speed. He’s got the aggressiveness, touch, skill, nerves. He can jump, he can head. He’s the complete package. It’s not often I say that because everyone has something they need to work on, but he’s got it all.” The quiet player is even starting to feel more comfortable in a leadership role. “That’s one of the things we’ve been working on with him,” Galvao said. “People look up to him and he has to understand that, whether he likes it or not. Whatever he does, the guys are always watching him and following his lead.” Junior David Salguero and senior Brandon Schram are among the other leading threats on a team Khatib describes as much more unified and driven than in previous years. “My job is to score,” Khatib said. “But when it’s one on three or four, it’s hard, and that’s when my teammates come in. We have to play as a team. They’ve helped me a lot, and that’s what we’re going to need to keep doing in playoffs.” heather.gripp@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “It’s exciting,” Khatib said. “This is what we’ve been looking forward to and working for. It was great to finally win league. This being my senior season makes it even better. “We know we still have a hard road ahead of us every game. We just need to play together and not lose focus.” It rarely takes long for opponents’ focus to shift to Khatib. The third-year varsity player has scored as many as five goals in a game this season. He scored in every game during the second round of Golden League play, during which Highland (11-5-4) went undefeated to vault into first place. center_img PALMDALE – Sharif Khatib doesn’t want to sound cocky, but he likes his chances against any defender willing to go one-on-one with him. “Just one? That’s not a problem,” Khatib said while pondering the toughest defenders he’s faced this season. “But I usually get three or four on me, so that’s a little harder.” last_img read more

Russian detained in Marseille for Euro 2016 hooliganism

first_img0Shares0000(FILES) This file photo taken on June 11, 2016 shows policemen attending to England fan Andrew Bache following clashes between fans of England and Russia in the city of Marseille, southern France, ahead of the Euro 2016 football match between England and Russia.A Russian football hooligan sought by authorities for savagely attacking a British fan at Euro 2016 in France has been arrested, German police said on February 22, 2018 © AFP/File / TOBIAS SCHWARZMARSEILLE, France, Mar 12 – A Russian was taken into custody in Marseille on Monday in connection with an attack that left an English football fan in a serious condition after fighting at the Euro 2016 football tournament.The 31-year-old, originally arrested in Germany in February, will face trial in connection with a mass attack that left a fan with permanent damage and is under provisional custody, state prosecutor Xavier Tarabeux told AFP. German police detained the wanted man last month on his arrival at Munich airport en route to Bilbao, where he was travelling for Spartak Moscow’s Europa League tie.The suspect, who was not named by police, risks up to 15 years in jail in France for attempted homicide and grievous bodily harm.The Russian embassy in Germany protested the arrest at the time.“We strongly protest against the detention and the return to a third country of a Russian citizen who had not committed any crime in German territory,” wrote Russian embassy spokesman Denis Mikerine on Facebook.“We consider this case a possible pretext to exacerbate and politicise hooliganism in football ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.”The arrest came just months before Russia hosts the World Cup from June 14 to July 15, with fears running high of a repeat of the 2016 rampage by Russian hooligans that erupted in the French port city of Marseille.Scenes of the street battles ahead of the Russia-England match in Marseille on June 11, 2016 shocked the world and marred the tournament.The clashes left 35 people injured, including two England fans who suffered serious injuries.French authorities had for months been seeking the suspect, who along with several other Russian hooligans is accused of attacking 51-year-old England supporter Andrew Bache.Bache was left paralysed on the left-hand side of his body after being hit around the head with an iron bar.After months of work with British police to identify the perpetrators of the assault against Bache, French authorities issued an arrest warrant for the Russian suspect in December 2017.France jailed three Russians and deported more than 20 others over the violence, and Russia was formally warned by UEFA that it could be thrown out of Euro 2016 over the rampage.As Russia gears up to host the World Cup, hooliganism experts say Russia’s powerful FSB security service has cracked down hard on football gangs and blacklisted many of their leaders in the run-up to the finals.Russian law enforcement agents are also working with their counterparts from England and other countries to determine which fans planning to attend games are safe, said a Russian source, adding that the final decision on who gets to attend the matches will be made by the Russian security services.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

UEFA may reopen FFP investigation into Man City following Football Leaks revelations

first_imgUEFA may reopen its 2014 Financial Fair Play investigation into Manchester City, European football’s governing body has warned.City outplayed local rivals Manchester United on Sunday and are two points clear at the top of the Premier League – but things may not be so healthy off the pitch. Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury REVEALED UEFA has warned it may reopen the FFP case against City 3 Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move In a statement, UEFA said it makes an annual assessment of all clubs against FFP’s break-even requirements on a rolling three-year basis, and this assessment depends on ‘fair and accurate’ information provided by the clubs, as well as ‘compliance checks and analysis undertaken by UEFA‘.“If new information comes to light that may be material to this assessment, UEFA will use that to challenge the figures and will seek explanation, clarification or rebuttal from the club concerned,” the statement continued.“Should new information suggest that previously-concluded cases have been abused, those cases may be capable of being reopened as determined on a case-by-case basis.” Latest Football News RANKED Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade no dice MONEY Things are rosy on the pitch, but not so when it comes to off-field matters Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade REVEALED Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars ADVICE Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? 3 REPLY huge blow Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ City were fined £49million for breaching FFP in 2014 BEST OF Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions shining Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won UEFA also defended the FFP system, saying it had helped clubs across Europe go from a cumulative debt of £1.5billion in 2011 to more than £500million in profits last year.“Without question, (FFP) has been a success for the game across Europe,” it added.City accepted a £49million fine for breaching FFP in 2014. The sanction also included a restriction on the size of the club’s squad for Europe the following two seasons and limits on their transfer spending and wage bill.In a statement issued at the time, the club suggested they were minded to fight UEFA in the courts but had decided to reluctantly accept the punishment in the interests of their fans, partners and commercial operations. 3 GETTY Citing documents and emails provided by the whistle-blowing platform Football Leaks, German magazine Der Spiegel has published a series of articles over the last 10 days which have accused City’s Abu Dhabi owners of trying to get around European football’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.Some at UEFA believed that to be the case in 2014, too, and the club was punished – but Der Spiegel claims the governing body was unaware of some of the details.City have repeatedly described Der Spiegel’s reports as the product of a ‘clear and organised’ attempt to tarnish their reputation, while UEFA’s initial response was to say it could not comment because of ‘confidentiality obligations’.But with Der Spiegel’s specific allegations remaining unchallenged, UEFA has finally indicated it has the stomach for a fight. And three years later, two thirds of that fine, more than £33million, was reimbursed to City by UEFA for meeting the terms of the 2014 settlement.Rival clubs could have appealed against City’s 2014 sanction, or the similar punishment Paris St Germain received at the same time, but none did and, so far, none has called for new sanctions now.UEFA, however, is already investigating PSG’s finances again, although the French club have challenged that decision at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, while Spain’s La Liga has asked UEFA to look again at City’s books as well.last_img read more


first_imgThe property company developing the Titanic Quarter in Belfast, which is partly owned by Donegal businessman Pat Doherty, made a £20m pre-tax loss in 2011.The details are contained in the accounts of Titanic Island.Much of the loss is attributed to a one-off payment of £13m to the charitable trust that owns the Titanic Belfast visitor attraction. The directors of Titanic Island state that the opening of the attraction earlier this year was a “tipping point” for the whole development.They add that the past year has been “arguably the most significant” in terms of progress made at the 185-acre development and “the pieces are in place” to make the area one of the most important commercial hubs in Ireland.Group turnover was £43m, down from £61m in 2010 while administrative expenses jumped from £7m to £19m.A £6m write-down in the value of investment properties meant that total after tax losses were £22m. The loss meant that shareholders funds fell from £30m to £8m.At the time the accounts were filed, £75m of Ulster Bank loans had expired and the directors said they were engaging with the bank with a view to restructuring the loans over the medium term.The bank was continuing to make the existing loan facility available while those talks continued.A note in the accounts from the firm’s auditors said the ability of Titanic Island to continue as a going concern is dependent on the continuing support of Ulster Bank.There is nothing to suggest that Ulster Bank will not continue to support the firm. Titanic Island is ultimately owned by Titanic Investments, a Jersey-registered firm controlled by Donegal developer Pat Doherty and billionaire financier Dermot Desmond.A company owned by Mr Desmond, Entice Holdings, has loaned £20m to Titanic Island while companies owned by Mr Doherty have loaned it £22mDONEGAL BUSINESSMAN LOSES A ‘TITANIC’ AMOUNT OF MONEY ON LATEST DEVELOPMENT was last modified: November 5th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Mojave still a site for soaring eyes

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Mojave will be the site for development and manufacture work on the company’s new spaceships. “Scaled’s development work will be performed in its current Mojave, California facilities. TSC (The Spaceship Co.) production is also planned to take place at the Mojave Spaceport,” the statement said. “VG (Virgin Galactic) plans initial commercial operations at the Mojave, California Spaceport.” Following delivery of the spaceships to Virgin Galactic, The Spaceship Co. will supply flight hardware to additional commercial spaceline operators. Scaled said it has several other prospects. At a space conference this month in Los Angeles, Virgin Galactic vice president Alex Tai noted his company was planning to conduct its initial operations at Mojave. “There’s no greater place to get it done,” Tai said. On Dec. 14, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson and Branson, chairman of the Virgin Co.’s, announced an agreement in which Virgin Galactic would locate its headquarters and mission control at a spaceport to be developed in the southern portion of New Mexico. Construction of the spaceport in New Mexico will begin in 2007 and should be completed by 2009 or 2010. Virgin Galactic plans to start space flights out of New Mexico once construction of the spaceport is complete. The company envisions sending 50,000 customers to space in the first 10 years of operation. The company has taken in $10 million in deposits already. — Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 james.skeen@dailynews.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MOJAVE – While British billionaire Richard Branson picked New Mexico to base his passenger-carrying space planes, California will play a major role in the emerging commercial space tourism business, space advocates say. The new space industry will require many sites, including Mojave and the $225 million spaceport the state of New Mexico is planning to build, they say. “There’s going to be business from this project for California and many other states,” said Eric Daniels, spokesman for the California Space Authority. “Virgin Galactic will have operations in multiple states when it’s all said and done. California will be a player.” Branson’s Virgin Galactic and Mojave-based Scaled Composites – which developed and flew the first privately developed manned spacecraft, SpaceShipOne – partnered to form The Spaceship Company to build the next manned spacecraft.last_img read more
