Oliveira will be low by penalty against Real on Tuesday in Ipurua

first_img9 cards in a ‘white glove’ matchIt is curious what happened on Saturday at Eibar-Mallorca (1-2) on Saturday in Ipurua. In a ‘white glove’ match, the referee Xavier Estrada Fernández had taken 5 cards before the 90th minute, to the locals Paulo Oliveira, José Ángel ‘Cote’ and Orellana; and to visitors Antonio Raillo and Dani Rodríguez.The ‘normality’ jumped through the air with the goal of Pedro Bigas, central defender of Eibar, born in Palma de Mallorca and former player of Mallorca. After the goal (1-2) with which the eibarreses cut distances, which came in time of discount, the vermilion goalkeeper, Manolo Reina took the ball inside his goal and did not release it to delay the kick-off, and try Avoid a match that did not occur. That caused the anger of the eibarreses players who claimed the ball to resume the game, but the goalkeeper of Villanueva del Trabuco (Málaga) continued to hold the ball as if it were his property, which despaired the Catalans.A dialectical brawl formed on the grass, where players from both teams met verbally because of this unusual situation. The referee then admonished by, discussing with the rivals, both the local Sergi Enrich, and Charles; as the visitor Reina.But even with the final whistle, the mess is over. Then the reproaches of one another began again. The referee took out, already finished the game and also to discuss, the yellow card to Yoel, substitute goalkeeper of Eibar, who had jumped to the grass at the conclusion of the duel.No one left the lawn. The Barca goalkeeper had to intervene, Dmitrovic, to mediate the discussion, taking his homologue Queen, who was exalted, by the arm, which managed to appease the spirits. Thus, several minutes after the end of the match, the players finally went to the locker room.The verbal noise, in which the arbitrator reflected in the minutes, there were no insults or threats – there will be no sanctions -, caused the party to end with a ‘war party’ of 9 cards (6 for the Guipuzcoans and 3 for the Balearic Islands). Paulo Oliveira, defense of Eibar, will be low by penalty before the Real society in Ipurua on Tuesday (20 hours) in a postponed match, corresponding to day 24 of the First Division League.The game between the two Guipuzcoan clubs must have been played on Sunday, February 16, but was suspended due to air pollution due to a landfill fire in Zaldibar (Bizkaia), caused by a landslide that buried two workers, whose bodies have not yet been found.The Portuguese central saw a yellow card in the Eibar-Mallorca (1-2) meeting on Saturday in Ipurua that will cause his absence due to accumulation of reprimands. He skated on the wet grass when he was going to play a ball, which he crossed, and suffered a strong encounter with ‘Cucho’ Hernández in which both were injured.This will be the second punishment match that Paulo Oliveira will meet. The first was against Atlético de Madrid in Ipurua, where the Guipuzcoans won 2-0 without their contest on January 18. In the previous duel against Valencia (1-0) in Mestalla, he saw two yellow cards that caused his expulsion. Before playing in Valencia he had 4 cards, but when he saw the red card for a double warning, the two yellow cards were not counted and his ‘score’ continued at 4.The Portuguese played 19 league games, in which he scored a goal, precisely against Mallorca in Son Moix, where the Eibarreses also fell (2-1) on the first league day of the 2019-2020 season.Eibar (27 points) has lost the only two games in which it has faced the Balearics in the First Division. Thus, Mallorca (25 points) has in its favor the particular ‘goal-average’, something fundamental in the struggle for permanence.last_img read more

Granger, Bynoe thumbing their collective noses at Guyanese

first_imgDear Editor,Guyana will receive four million barrels of ‘profit-oil’ in 2020; the Granger Administration has already sold three million of those in 2019. Granger has not bothered to hold a press conference and offer details. Given the importance of this event and the strident calls for transparency in all dealings with oil revenues, this is a troubling development. But there is worse news, as I write this; the Department of Energy is working feverishly to conclude an arrangement for the sale of all of Guyana’s profit-oil over the next five years. The deal reportedly involves payment of 0.75 per cent of all sales to a newly created London-based marketing company. 0.75 per cent may not sound like much but it will amount to over US$100 million over the next five years.Mr Granger and Mr Bynoe are thumbing their collective noses at the Guyanese people with their continuing refusal to acknowledge that long-term deals cannot be entered into by a caretaker Government and the need for full transparency in all dealings with oil and gas.  The recently leaked Auditor General’s report for 2018 contains page after page detailing corrupt practices, billions of unaccounted public monies and brazen theft by the Granger Administration. The attempt to sign a five-year oil sale arrangement with a clear fund-siphon attached is beyond the pale of honesty and decency.David Granger has hidden from the glare of unscripted questions throughout his Presidency; he has clung fiercely to the idea that it is better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt; this cannot be the modus operandi of Guyana’s leader in our new era as an oil-producing nation. Opaqueness is a recipe for civil disaster.Granger is going to attempt to sell the next five years of oil production before February 2020, mere days before a general election. This is how Granger wants to begin his “Decade of Development”, it is a roadmap for corruption; a return to the ‘dark ages’ and an establishment of a Granger Monarchy. Republic day is on the March 23, a week later Regional and General Elections will be held, let us resolve to vote for the end of opaque oil dealings, corruption and see a return to the rule of law and a system of parliamentary democracy.The PPP/C presidential candidate has stated publicly that there is a great need for measures to be in place to ensure transparency and accountability to guard the emerging sector against corruption.  Given that Granger came into Government and met a full Treasury (US$968 million) and is leaving it with nothing but buttons five years later, there is no greater urgency for all Guyanese to work together to halt this insidious long-term sale of oil being negotiated clandestinely by Granger and Bynoe. I will continue to shine this little light of mine, Guyanese will get to do their bit at the polls on March 2, 2020.Respectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more

State’s unpreparedness “embarrassing” – Ramjattan

first_imgMarcus Bisram murder trialIn light of delays in the Marcus Bisram case, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan says it is embarrassing that the State is not ready to prosecute the extradited murder accused, who is charged with orchestrating the murder of a 26-year-old carpenter in 2016.When the case was called up at the Whim Magistrate’s Court, the prosecution indicated that it is not fully prepared to move ahead with the case. The matter was then adjourned to December 9 for the prosecution to submit all files relating to the matter.But on that day, the presiding Magistrate, Alex Moore, reported sick. The defence team has since complained bitterly about the delays, especially since the State had to prepare its case while the extradition process was ongoing to get Bisram here from the United States.When asked about these delays, Ramjattan told reporters on the sidelines of an event on Wednesday that situation is embarrassing.“Well, that is very embarrassing if that is what the behaviour is… what you’re telling me there is rather disheartening,” he asserted.According to the Public Security Minister, he will be looking into the matter. He noted that he will be talking to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) as well as the Chief Justice and Chancellor of the Judiciary in relation to the prosecutor and the Magistrate, respectively.However, Ramjattan noted that there is a file containing evidence upon which Bisram was charged last month. In fact, he posited that the necessary documents are all there and that the Police, particularly, the Crime Chief would have those documents.But it was pointed out to the Minister that some of the statements in that file are yet to be submitted to the Court for the commencement of the Preliminary Inquiry (PI).As such, he said “Well that again is rather surprising. It will be entirely embarrassing for the State to demand [Bisram’s] coming over and now that he’s extradited these officers are not up to the task of ensuring that they get the documents in time”.Bisram is charged with the murder of Fayaz Narinedatt, a carpenter of Number 70 Village Corentyne, on November 30, 2016.He is accused of ordering the death of the 26-year-old, which was initially reported as a suspected hit-and-run accident. It was later revealed that Narinedatt was murdered after he rejected sexual advances made by Bisram.Further investigations led to five persons being charged and are now committed to stand trial in the High Court for the carpenters’ murder. Bisram was initially charged here in absentia and local Police have been trying since to get Bisram, a US-based citizen, here but he had been fighting his extradition over the past two years.But his efforts were futile and Bisram was eventually handed over to local authorities on November 20. He was then arraigned the following day at the Whim’s Magistrate Court.After the court was told that the prosecution was not ready for commencement of the trial at the December 2 hearing, State Prosecutor Stacy Goodings did not show up when the matter was recalled on Monday.Additionally, a scheduled visit to the scene of the murder was also postponed after the Magistrate had reported sick.Defence Attorney Sanjeev Datadin has accused the State of delaying the caselast_img read more
