It is alleged that coal pots were being made out of the safety signs.During police preliminary investigations, the defendants allegedly confessed to stealing the road safety signs from in late November and said they sold each of them for L$300.Meanwhile, the suspects have been detained at the Kakata Central Prison pending trial at the Kakata Magisterial Court.–LINAShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Liberians Call on UN Forces to Stay

first_imgA delegation from Liberia’s major opposition parties and civil society groups has petitioned the UN to maintain its peacekeeping forces in the country.A 25-member delegation presented a petition to the UN’s Special Representative in Monrovia on Friday, calling for the soldiers to stay until after 2017’s general and presidential elections.The group, under the banner of the Joint Action Committee, said their coming together was driven by their desire for stability in the country.In the past weeks the group had threatened mass peaceful protests to make the UN extend its mandate.Presenting the petition, Mulbah Morlu, a member of the country’s leading opposition party, Congress for Democratic Change, cited recent violent encounters between members of the president’s Executive Protection Services and members of the Liberia National Police, which he said had stoked public fears.They also cited the recent sacking of some members of the national police force for their purported involvement in armed robberies, news of which caused public unrest.The group believes the security of the state will be at risk if the UN departs.The Joint Action Committee said the incidents reinforced the need for the UN to reevaluate Resolution 2229.This UN Security Council resolution says that that by Sep. 30 this year, UNMIL would have significantly reduced its presence, leaving just 600 police officers.In response to the petitioners, the Special Representation to the United Nations in Liberia said the decision on the future of UNMIL rested with the Security Council.However, the local UN has promised that the petitioners’ request and concerns will be presented at a Security Council meeting on March 17.The UN’s Dr. Farid Zarif said the Security Council does not want to “waste all the gains of the past 13 years,” adding that the UN will continue to support local government institutions.The United Nations has been in the West African country since 2003 to oversee a peace which followed years of civil unrest which killed hundreds of thousands of people and displaced many, many more.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Noise nuisance in West Ruimveldt

first_imgDear Editor,I’m taking this opportunity in your newspaper column to voice my concern about the loud music that is being played every Thursday and Sunday by the Ballaz Bar.Our community is West Ruimveldt Estate.This bar has been playing their music very loudly, many times until 04:00h in the morning. This is causing much distress to neighbours and their children. Our children cannot study or even get a good night’s sleep and many children go to the West Ruimveldt Primary School, the area which the bar is also located.The bar also had a shooting recently and Police found a gun. They are being allowed to play their music very loudly until after 02:00h.Many calls were made by neighbours to the Ruimveldt Police Station but nothing has been done. Police patrols would pass and “gaff” with the people of the bar and just allow the music to continue.This situation is getting worse. This situation needs Minister Ramjattan’s attention. This music is so loud, even the roofs of the houses shake and car alarms go off. How can residents live in this situation?Sincerely,Concerned residentslast_img read more

The pumps will also provide flood relief to approximately 25,000 acres of agricultural and residential lands.Residents in Hampton Court and Devonshire Castle in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam); Den Amstel in Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara); Hope and Nooten Zuil in Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica); Mora Point in Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice), and Rose Hall in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) will benefit from the installation of eight fixed pumps within their communities, which will help to restrict flooding in their communities.Meanwhile, five mobile pumps will provide drainage services to Georgetown and its environs including La Penitence South, Cummings Canal, Church Street, Sussex Street and South Ruimveldt. These mobile drainage pumps will be assigned to various locations close to existing sluices in the city and its surrounding areas. The pumps will also be deployed to other areas to alleviate flooding whenever necessary.

Football Manager 2017 wonderkids: 15 central midfielders you must sign

first_img 10. Manuel Locatelli (AC Milan) – Value = £550,000 – Already breaking into the first-team in real life, Locatelli shows promise in Football Manger 2017 too. High physical and mental attributes for a teen help him out, but his technical ones need work. If you persist with him you will be rewarded as his passing and technique develop well. 20 12. Mikel Merino (Borussia Dortmund) – Value = £6.5m – Snapped up from Osasuna in the summer, it might be hard to nab him, but keep an eye on how Merino develops. He’s a deep-lying playmaker with extremely good mental attributes, bar his positioning and concentration. By the age of 26 he becomes a real star in midfield. 3. Mahmoud Dahoud (Borussia Monchengladbach) – Value = £10.25m – The Syrian-born star is already a household name thanks to his performances last season, and a smattering of excellent attributes mark him out as talent, but others, like his positioning, could do with improvement. 14. Carles Alena (Barcelona) – Value = £400,000 – As you would expect from a Nou Camp starlet, Alena has huge ratings for first touch, passing, technique and flair. His physicality and mental stats are lower but he develops into an exceptional talent. 20 1. Renato Sanches (Bayern Munich) – Value = £23m – Able to play in plenty of midfield roles, Sanches was a star for Portugal on the way to their Euro 2016 triumph. He’s also a star on Football Manager. Don’t worry about the average technical attributes, they will rise, just like his value. He will move for huge money. 18. Kristoffer Ajer (Celtic) – Value = £675,000 – Able to play anywhere down the spine of your side should you find yourself in an injury crisis, Ajer would be a handy signing. His mental attributes are excellent for an 18-year-old, while his technical stats make him a good ball-winnner, with plenty of technique too. He’s a well-rounded midfielder capable of playmaking or winning the ball. 7. Filippo Melegoni (Atalanta) – Value = £160,000 – Another Italian who has plenty of potential is this 17-year-old, he has average attributes right where he needs them and his high mark for determination means you know he can be trusted to develop. He may need additional focus on his positioning but, in either an attacking or a defensive role, he will eventually become an international star. 20. Godfred Donsah (Bologna) – Value = £4.3million – The strong box-to box midfielder starts with a pretty good selection of attributes to begin the game. His technical attributes need work but mentally and physically he’s a fine addition. 16. Marko Grujic (Liverpool) – Value = £1.4m – On the cusp of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team, the Serbian international has some really strong attributes across the board at the start of the game. He’ll make a fine playmaker for your side, and can add goals to your side. If you’re going to have success in Football Manager 2017, you’re going to need a good engine room.A midfielder can come in many guises, both in the modern game and in Football Manager 2017, with the best teams opting for a combination of ball-winners and playmakers.The best will have high attributes for passing, technique, and vision, while others might have excellent dribbling or tackling to complement their style.However they play, they’re a crucial element in football, as N’Golo Kante proved with Leicester City throughout their stunning Premier League winning campaign.But which midfielder should you be signing in your Football Manager save? Click the right arrow above to see 20 wonderkids you might want to consider in the position… 20 20 20 20 20 2. Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur) – Value = £30m – A natural in central, and attacking, midfield Alli’s attributes are incredible for a 20-year-old. If you can afford him, which may be unlikely, you must sign him. 17. Youri Tielemans (Anderlecht) – Value = £10m – The young Belgian operates best as an advanced playmaker, despite starring in a deeper role in the Champions League in real life. With high ratings for first touch, passing, and technique it’s not hard to see why his potential is up there. His physicality lets him down a bit though, as does his positioning. 11. Stefano Sensi (Sassuolo) – Value = £2.6m – Italian starlet Sensi isn’t the greatest prospect physically, but makes up for it with superb vision, composure flair and determination, which all aid his strong passing. 20 20 20 20 15. Pepelu (Levante) – Value = £250,000 – He’s doesn’t have the most outstanding attributes to start with but, trust us, he’s worth a punt as a more orthodox central midfielder. 20 9. Andre Horta (Benfica) – Value = £6.5m – A dribbler with an eye for a pass, Horta can also play in attacking midfield. He’s a little weak to begin with but his technical skills more than make up for it. Get him while you can, we’ve seen him valued at £54million as a 26-year-old in one game (with Southampton). 20 5. Kai Havertz (Bayer Leverkusen) – Value = £425,000 – For a 17-year-old, Havertz already has a selection of impressive attributes, he should flourish as an advanced playmaker and has the ability to fill in at numerous positions, adding to his value. Assists will be coming your way if you can sign him. 6. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (Southampton) – Value = £11m – Extremely versatile and already hugely talented, the 20-year-old Saints star is first-team ready – if you can afford him. Football Manager rates him nearly as much as Pep Guardiola. 20 20 19. Abdou Diakhate (Fiorentina) – Value = £180,000 – Another box-to-box midfielder to check out is Diakhate, he’s younger than Donsah but shows plenty of promise with high attributes for his age. His high determination underpins his talent. 20 4. Lewis Cook (Bournemouth) – Value = £10m – The ex-Leeds man has the ability to perform any playmaking role for your side, as well as a box-to-box one. If you can afford him, the 19-year-old is a top talent and is sure to fire you to glory. 20 20 20 13. Joao Carvalho (Benfica) – Value = £375,000 – Another advanced playmaker on our list, Carvalho is clearly talented and also versatile, watch out for his excellent crossing, which could make him a threat from wide positions. He can be an assist machine for your side. 8. Afonso Sousa (Porto) – Value = £1,600 – One of the youngest in our list at 16, Sousa also has the lowest starting value. He will need time and development so nurture him before dumping him in your first-team. He will be a class attacking option for your midfield if you take the plunge, though. 20last_img read more
