  • Turkish Cypriot authorities stop opposition journalist entering other part of island

    first_imgNews News Reporters Without Borders today protested against the action of the Turkish Cypriot authorities in preventing Sener Levent, editor of the Turkish Cypriot opposition daily Afrika, from crossing the border into the southern, Greek Cypriot part of the island on 4 May because he has no identity papers. Levent was stripped of his papers by the authorities in 2000.”This incident is yet one more example of the independent press being obstructed in its work,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash. “We call on you to put a stop to the discrimination against Sener Levent and restore full freedom of movement to him,” Ménard said. “If his identity papers are not returned to him at once, we will consider that Levent is being held in your country against his will,” the letter added.Since the Turkish Cypriot authorities began allowing people to cross the border between the two parts of the island on 23 April, many journalists have done so by just presenting their press card. Levent, together with fellow journalists Ali Osman and Faize Ozdemirciler of the same newspaper, were however unable to cross the border when they tried to travel to the south of the island at the invitation of the president of the Union of Cypriot Journalists, Andreas Kannaouros.When asked to show their identify papers at the border, Levent could not produce his because the authorities took his ID documents from him in 2000 when they accused him of spying on behalf of the Greek Cypriot authorities. Although the charges were later dropped, his papers were never returned.Cypriot journalists demonstrated their support for Levent at the Hotel Ledra Palace checkpoint in Nicosia on 6 May. The Union of Cypriot Journalists also handed in a petition to the United Nations denouncing the behaviour of the Turkish Cypriot authorities.For the past three years, Afrika has been subjected to attacks, death threats, seizure of equipment and fines in a campaign to gag its criticism of the Turkish Cypriot authorities. On 9 August 2002, Levent was sentenced to six months in prison for “affront to the president” of the Turkish Cypriot part of the island. He was released after two months.

  • City surpass 100 goals in Cardiff win

    first_imgManchester City smashed through the 100-goal barrier for the season as they overcame Cardiff 4-2 at the Etihad Stadium. City were in control for most of the game but it was not until Toure’s 76th-minute strike that the result was certain. Cardiff had been threatening an equaliser in the early part of the second half and that fighting quality will at least have pleased manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as his side slipped to the bottom. What Cardiff could have done without was the disturbance among the visiting fans during the first half, which stewards were required to quell. The situation did appear to become problematic at one point but it eventually settled down. The hosts made a bright start and Dzeko wanted a penalty in the second minute as he went down under a challenge from Kevin McNaughton, but referee Neil Swarbrick gave nothing and Navas shot wide. Dzeko went close again as he turned to shoot from a David Silva pass but David Marshall produced a fine save. Marshall was called into action again soon after, but to deny his own team-mate Ben Turner after the defender diverted a dangerous Navas cross towards the Cardiff goal. It was no surprise that City’s 100th goal of the campaign was not much longer in coming, although Dzeko had technology to thank for it being awarded. Swarbrick signalled goal after Dzeko’s scuffed shot from Silva’s pull-back crossed the line before McNaughton could clear. Cardiff players surrounded Swarbrick to complain. They could have had little argument over whether the ball had gone in but they may have been complaining about a possible handball by Silva in the build-up. There may also have been debate over whether City should have had a throw-in prior to Silva receiving the ball, but it all fell on deaf ears. Alvaro Negredo was booked for a heavy tackle on Aron Gunnarsson and moments later might have doubled City’s lead when he raced onto a Pablo Zabaleta ball but sliced wide. Cardiff did not have a shot until just before the half-hour when Jordon Mutch aimed weakly at Joe Hart. But it should have served as a warning for City as a minute later Gunnarsson fed Noone down the right and the winger cut inside, wrong-footed Vincent Kompany in the box and lashed in a fine equaliser. This time City did respond as Toure shrugged off the attention of Gunnarsson in his own half and powered forward to find Dzeko. The hard-working forward was robbed of the ball by Steven Caulker as he lined up a shot but it rolled on to Navas and the Spaniard snaffled the chance. City continued to dominate but could not find a way through as Cardiff and particularly Caulker, who headed away another tricky Navas cross, held firm. That may have given Cardiff encouragement at half-time that they could fight their way back into the contest again. They returned strongly after the break and Hart saved from Mutch before diving on a loose ball at a corner. Noone then brought the best out of Hart after a good run but City upped the tempo to put the game beyond Cardiff in the final 15 minutes. Silva went close when he shot inches wide after a neat lay-off by Dzeko and Aguero, fresh off the bench, shot over. The decisive goal came from Toure after the Ivorian set off on a rampaging run from deep inside his own half. Toure had regained possession after one of his own passes had gone astray and he charged upfield to fire past Marshall after playing a one-two with Aguero on the edge of the box. Cardiff were still reeling from that when Aguero stung them again after 79 minutes, twisting one way then the other to outfox Caulker and clip home the fourth. With the job done, City eased off in the latter stages and were caught out at a corner as Campbell knocked in a loose ball from close range. Press Association Late goals from Yaya Toure and fit-again Sergio Aguero ensured another victory for the Barclays Premier League title favourites. Edin Dzeko had brought up their century in the first half but Cardiff gave them a battle and equalised through Craig Noone before Jesus Navas grabbed City’s second. Fraizer Campbell claimed a Cardiff consolation in injury-time. last_img read more

  • JAMAICA PM says country well position to capitalize on Health and Wellness

    first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, November 6, 2017 – Montego Bay – Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says health and wellness tourism is a growing market on which Jamaica is uniquely poised to capitalise.Addressing the official opening of the GWest Medical Centre in Fairview, Montego Bay, on November 2, Mr. Holness said the upcoming United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) conference in Montego Bay from November 27 to 29 offers the perfect opportunity for the country to showcase the world-class medical facilities and services it now has at its disposal.“The global growth in the flow of patients, health professionals and medical technology across national borders has made medical tourism a thriving sector,” Mr. Holness pointed out.“Jamaica is ideally poised for this growing market, which was valued at approximately US$20 billion in 2016. It is now estimated that it will reach approximately US$47 billion by 2021,” he added.The Prime Minister said the UNWTO conference will offer the forum where Jamaica will be able to highlight how far it has come in the area of health and wellness and its ability to now use it as a strategic marketing tool.“The conference will focus on a larger scale what GWest is in fact showcasing. It will be bringing ideas and capital together to create a valuable offering which will stimulate economic growth, job creation and profitability,” Mr. Holness said.The Prime Minister also noted that Jamaica has a competitive edge as it relates to medical tourism, pointing to “the availability of quality professionals, the island’s strategic location, increasing diagnostic facilities, and, importantly, Government’s support to facilitate growth in this market”.“Jamaica must continue to diversify and expand our tourism product in order to meet emerging market demands.   Travelers today are more discerning.   In some cases, due to ageing and complex health conditions, the availability of world-class health facilities is considered when making decisions to travel for vacation, business or to return home,” he pointed out.The Prime Minister, however, said that even with the best of intentions and all the best-laid plans in the world, unless the crime situation is brought under control, everything, going forward, will continue to be a challenge.“The business community here in Montego Bay is especially sensitive to this reality.   I want to say to the business people that we hear your concerns, and we are doing all that we can and more to ensure that we bring the situation under control very quickly,” he added.The Prime Minister noted that with the help of the business community and other stakeholders in Montego Bay, “we are serious about effecting sustainable, positive transformation”.“Earlier this week, with unwavering support in Parliament, we were able to secure the extension of the Mount Salem Zone of Special Operations for a further 60 days,” Mr. Holness said.“This will give more space to our law-enforcement teams to continue their security work and for the Social Intervention Committee to actually start the social-intervention projects that will see to a long-lasting sustained peace in those areas where the zones are implemented,” he added.The GWest Centre was established by a group of Jamaican medical and business professionals. It is housed in a modern multipurpose commercial complex and provides a wide range of high-quality medical services in the same location.Release: JISlast_img read more

  • Official Lionel Messi returns for Argentina

    first_imgThe Argentine Football Association (AFA) have confirmed that Lionel Messi will return to the national team during the upcoming international break.The Barcelona star’s future in international football had been in growing doubt over the past eight months due to having not represented Argentina since June 30, where they went crashing out of the World Cup in the last-16 stage to eventual winners France.New manager Lionel Scaloni had since been unable to name Messi in any of his squads with the five-time Ballon d’Or winner notably remaining silent on his international future.But the AFA president Claudio Tapia gave some welcome news on Messi last month by practically giving it away that he will return for Argentina during the upcoming international break.Scaloni had said himself in December: “I do not talk very often with Messi, but we have a relationship.“We are going to try for him to join us in 2019, we have pending talks and we are optimistic that it will be positive.“For us it is something important. Any coach would like to coach him, myself more than any.”Now the AFA have confirmed Messi’s long-awaited return on Twitter earlier this afternoon.Top 5 players who can actually replace Messi and Ronaldo Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 13, 2019 After Pep Guardiola’s latest defense of Messi and Ronaldo, we need to start talking about the Top 5 players who can replace them.Replacing Messi and…The 31-year-old will, therefore, likely be in the squad for the friendlies against Venezuela on March 23 and Morocco three days later.Messi has scored a record 65 goals and added 42 assists in 128 matches for Argentina, but has never tasted the success he’s enjoyed at Barcelona.Therefore, it’s likely Messi’s been motivated by the prospect of having another go at finally claiming some silverware with Argentina by winning this summer’s Copa America at Brazil.However, Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has not been named in Scaloni’s team with Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, Fiorentina’s Giovanni Simeone and Boca Juniors’ Dario Benedetto getting the nod instead.Due to having not played since February 13, Mauro Icardi is also absent from the list after being stripped on captaincy at Inter. Chelsea loan striker Gonzalo Higuain is also omitted from the list.#SelecciónMayor Ésta es la lista de futbolistas convocados por el entrenador Lionel Scaloni para los próximos amistosos de la @Argentina. pic.twitter.com/a16vUSMQSJ— Selección Argentina 🇦🇷 (@Argentina) March 7, 2019last_img read more
