Since it would mean that LaLiga would be decided (championship, European positions, decreases …) without 22% of the players registered at the beginning of the season or that the teams themselves had to renew several of them almost forced to fight for their goals. The figure could be lower since some footballers who end their contracts at the end of the season are negotiating an expansion or have formulas to automatically renew, such as achieving the goal. There are many particular cases, such as Odegaard, which is only loaned for one year although there would be a verbal agreement for two, or Soldier, to end the contract, but has another option. “It is stipulated that the contracts, including the assignments, end on June 30. These extraordinary circumstances and exceptions are being studied, “federal sources point to AS. From the footballers union AFE for now they focus on the current health crisis and defend the health of their players: “The measures should not be taken individually, but together. Now, the fundamental thing is that the health of all is guaranteed footballers as citizens who are. And that clubs act responsibly. “ Barcelona ValladolidJavi Sánchez, Raúl García, Pedro Porro, Fernandes, Ünal and SandroMoyano, Míchel and Ben Arfa I raised ForemanBruno González and Iván López ValenciaJaume Costa and FlorenziGaray AthleticSan José, Beñat and Aduriz GetafeEteboo, Cucurella, Kenedy, Jason and DeyversonAntunes SevilleBonus and ReguilónBanega and Nolito BetisPedraza and AleñáBarragan VillarrealAnguissaBarbosa, Bruno Soriano and Cazorla AthleticAdam OsaunaArnáiz and Enric GallegoRubén Martínez, Roncaglia, Fran Mérida and Adrián Lópezcenter_img On loanContract ends AlavesRoberto, Magallán, Fejsa, Camarasa and Aleix Vidal LeganesJuan Soriano, Awaziem, Kevin Rodrigues, Marc Navarro, Amadou, Roque Mesa, Óscar Rodríguez, Bryan Gil, Carrillo, Guerrero, Ruibal and AssaléJavi Eraso and Szymanowski CelticMurillo, Olaza, Bradaric, Cheikh, Rafinha, Juan Henández and SmolovSergio Alvarez EibarCristóforo and Rafa SoaresEscalante, Ramis, de Blasis, Orellana, Pedro León and Charles SpanishBernardo, Corchia, Calleri and FerreyraDiego López, Naldo, Didac Vila, Javi López, Iturraspe and Wu Lei Source: Transfermarkt The coronavirus pandemic has put the First Division in check. In the 91 years of LaLiga’s life, he had never been in a situation like that of having to stop the championship and postpone two days, without knowing with certainty when it can really be played again. For this reason, although the employer’s intention is to play the 380 games, many questions arise if it is not possible. Who would be the league champion or who would ascend and descend if it cannot be finished? But, at the same time, others arise, before other possible scenarios. If the pandemic is prolonged in time, extending the stoppage of LaLiga and it must resort to June (as long as UEFA decides to delay their European Championship to 2021) and part of July, will players who end their contract or transfer on June 30 be able to play?The situation is complex. And is that 19 of the 20 Primera clubs would be affected Division (all teams, except Barcelona, have a loan or player that ends the June 30 contract. Date the season is set to end.) In total there would be 112 footballers involved. Luis Rubiales, president of the Spanish Football Federation, has already warned that they face scenarios without an established response and that they will have to be addressed. Which should be carefully studied since they will set a precedent. “The season ends on June 30, but we can take exceptional measures,” said Rubiales. after the announcement that professional football was putting the brakes on in Spain.Leganés, who is fighting for permanence, would be the most damaging club in this situation, since they would lose up to 14 of their members: It has 12 players on loan and two end contract. Granada would be another major victim (he would lose 12 footballers), followed by Mallorca (10) and Espanyol (10), the other two clubs that are in decline along with the cucumbers. Éver Banega has a more particular situation. The player has already signed that from next season he will wear the colors of Al Shabab from Saudi Arabia.

Kitty man granted $1.5M bail

first_imgA 41-year-old man of Lot 15 Station Street, Kitty, Georgetown, was on Tuesday granted bail in the sum of .5 million for allegedly committing a million fraud.He appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.The charge against Rajesh Tahadeo stated that on September 7, 2015, at Georgetown, he conspired with another person to commit a felony; that is to say, obtaining money by false pretence.It is alleged that Tahadeo had falsely obtained million by virtue of a Republic Bank cheque #322007167, from Lloyd Singh after falsely pretending he knew Shane-Ann Boston as “Venice LaRose”, claiming the said woman owned a plot of land at Block H1 Peter’s Hall, East Bank Demerara.Police Prosecutor Vishnu Hunt stated in the prosecution’s case that the defendant and the Virtual Complainant (VC) are known to each other. He stated that on the day in question, the defendant brought a woman to the VC, claiming she had a plot of land to sell. Singh paid the million and bought the land. However, it was later discovered that the plot of land was not for sale and the passport the woman used as a form of identification was forged.Tahadeo’s Attorney Glen Hanoman said Tahadeo was granted bail in his own recognisance and has given six statements to Police Officers at the Police station.Hanoman continued that his client is surprised to have been called into court and charged. He argued that his client was not aware that the woman was a con woman. He therefore requested bail to be set in a reasonable sum.Police Prosecutor Hunt indicated to the court that he has no objections to bail since the defendant cooperated with Police Officers during the investigation. He further stated that the defendant was only made aware of the charges the day before via phone call when he was also told he needed to attend court the next day.Magistrate Latchman granted the defendant bail in the sum of ,500,000, to which the Defence Attorney objected. According to Hanoman, the amount granted would be tantamount to bail being refused to his client.He explained that Tahadeo is currently in an embarrassing financial situation, and appealed for the sum to be reduced.The Magistrate stated that she had considered his request and bail was maintained at the sum of .5 million.The defendant is scheduled to make his next court appearance on November 1, 2016, before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for statements and assignment.last_img read more

Lands and Surveys Commission to develop code of ethics for surveyors

first_img– moves to improve relationships with regional administration in Region SixChief Executive Officer and Commissioner of the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission (GLSC), Trevor Benn announced the Commission is currently in the process of developing a code of ethics that will be used to guide and Police the work of land surveyors across Guyana.Benn made this announcement during a community meeting, held on February 26, 2018, in Corriverton as part of a three-day outreach from February 25-27, to Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).This code of ethics, Benn said, is being drafted into a bill and tabled in theA Berbice resident voices his concerns to Commissioner Trevor Benn during the Corriverton/ Springlands community meeting held at the Guyana Lands and Surveys office in Corriverton, Berbice. The meeting was held as part of a GLSC outreach to East Berbice-CorentyneNational Assembly.“People have been complaining about the way work has been done with surveying. So, we’re working on a bill that we hope to take to Cabinet and then to Parliament in relation to the work of surveyors; a new code of ethics that will govern the profession. At the moment, we don’t have any and so surveyors go out there and work without any real sanction for bad behaviour… We’re putting this bill in place to make sure that there is something we can go by and we don’t treat in an ad hoc manner the sanctioning of surveyors,” he said.The Commission has held one consultation with surveyors in Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) and will continue consultations in all other administrative regions of Guyana. The consultation process is set to be completed at the end ofCommissioner Trevor Benn and the Guyana Lands and Surveys Region Six outreach team paid a courtesy call to Mayor of New Amsterdam, Winifred Haywood to discuss land issues in New AmsterdamMay, with the ultimate goal of completing the draft bill and presenting it to Cabinet in June 2018. Benn said the outreach was planned in response to an increasing number of land inquiries and complaints coming from Region Six.Accompanied by a 10-person team from the Georgetown GLSC office, the Commissioner was able to listen to the issues of over 60 residents from Kildonan, Fyrish, Springlands, Corriverton, New Amsterdam, and their surrounding villages.“At the Lands and Surveys Commission we take very seriously the work that we do and in order for us to be able to understand the issues affecting our work on a daily basis we have organised ourselves to do several outreaches across the country… We do these outreaches primarily because often the true picture of [what is] happening on the ground is unknown from the office. So, we come out with the staff to sit and air the views from the people themselves who live in the issues on a daily basis and who understand [them] better than we do… We can, together with them, find resolutions on the many issues,” the Lands Commissioner said during an interview at Dave’s Reception Hall, Chapel Street, New Amsterdam.With the hope of healing Commission-municipal relations that may have been strained in the past, Benn made courtesy calls on Mayor of New Amsterdam, Winifred Haywood and Regional Chairman of Region Six, David Armogan.We intend to do this wherever we do outreaches; to meet with the local authorities… to let them understand what… we are about, to let them understand the do’s and don’ts, and to let them understand how we can support them and vice versa… In the past, a lot of decisions were [made] without the involvement of these stakeholders… We believe [that] it was wrong, which is why I apologised to the Mayor and Town Council this morning and promised that in the future we will do better,” he said.Mayor Haywood expressed her appreciation for the GLSC outreach and said she is happy to work to improve New Amsterdam’s relationship with the Commission.As a result of the meetings, Commissioner Benn and a team from the Georgetown GLSC office will return to Berbice on March 10, to help conduct an occupational survey with the hope of solving land disputes in Kildonan. The Commissioner also met with GLSC branch offices in New Amsterdam and Corriverton and hosted a staff dinner in appreciation of their hard work.last_img read more

Granger awaits advice of AG, Cabinet before dissolving Parliament

first_imgHaving already set March 2, 2020 as the date for the General and Regional Elections, President David Granger said he is awaiting advice from Attorney General Basil Williams and his Cabinet before dissolving Parliament.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo“I have not prorogued the National Assembly, I have not dissolved Parliament and I am awaiting the advice of my Attorney General on a date for the dissolution of Parliament,” the Head of State told reporters on Wednesday.Parliament came out of its annual recess on October 10 and according to Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs, no sitting has been fixed.However, President Granger noted that until he makes a decision on the dissolution of Parliament, it will remain in session in the event of any emergency.President David Granger“We naturally have to keep our options open in the event if there’s any emergency, the National Assembly will be convened to deal with that emergency – be it financial or emergency… If it is necessary, I can reconvene Parliament. It has not been dissolved and I will dissolve it only on the advice of my Cabinet,” the President contended.Attorney General Basil WilliamsSince announcing March 2, 2020 as Elections Day weeks ago, and subsequent issuance of the elections proclamations, calls have been mounting for President Granger to now dissolve the 11th Parliament.But Attorney General Basil Williams earlier this month said the coalition is still hopeful that the parliamentary Opposition – People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) – will return to the National Assembly to extend its life; otherwise, he foresees a “crisis” situation in Guyana.However, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had long thrown cold water on any expectation that his party will return to Parliament. In fact, the Opposition had not attended any parliamentary sitting since January when House Speaker, Dr Barton Scotland, had refused to overturn the December 21, 2018 passage of the No-Confidence Motion as requested by Government and directed them to seek redress in the courts.The Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) – Guyana’s highest appellate court – has since validated the passage of the Opposition-tabled motion, which it said activated Article 106 of the Constitution. This provides for Cabinet, including the President, to resign and call elections in three months, unless there is a two-thirds majority vote of all sitting members of the National Assembly to extend that timeline.Jagdeo, a former President, had pointed out that an extension of Government’s life is unnecessary a time point since it is not linked to any decisions that should be taken to facilitate the polls.Moreover, the CCJ would have bestowed the coalition administration with a caretaker status, indicating that its main function is to host elections.“[The President] sought to link the date with the return of the parliamentary Opposition to Parliament to extend the life of his Government…Therein are several fallacies. One, there is no link to the extension of his Government, which has been illegal since March 21. He never sought that extension before,” Jagdeo had pointed out.The Opposition Leader further added, “Secondly, the extension is wholly unnecessary for him to discharge the caretaker responsibility that had been accorded to him by the CCJ. Because a caretaker Government is only vested with one responsibility, that is, holding elections and having the authority to do all the things necessary with the holding of elections. By virtue of being caretaker, he can proclaim the date and he can dissolve the Parliament”.According to Jagdeo, Government is looking at the extension as a legal footing for activities which are not authorised under a caretaker administration.“We believe the real reason for all of this [is] they want legal coverage for all the criminal acts of theft and transfers of resources that they have committed because they believe if we extend the life of the Government, there will be no prosecution. There can’t be prosecution,” he signalled.In this regard, he reaffirmed that there is a zero per cent chance of them returning to the National Assembly.“We have no intention of going to Parliament to extend the life of his Government. Absolutely none. No intention whatsoever,” Jagdeo positioned.last_img read more
