MONEY-LENDER JAILED FOR TWO YEARS AFTER THREAT TO KILL MAN WHO OWED €70

first_imgA man who ran a money-lending operation in Donegal has been jailed for a total of two years after threatening to kill a man over a €70 debt.Kluczak outside court in Letetrkenny.Miroslaw Kluczak ran a money-lending business in Letterkenny and collected his debts outside the local post office after people received their social welfare payments. On April 4th, 2013, Kluczak, 39, met Leszek Majewski and his wife outside the post office and demanded his cash.Majewski had borrowed €200 for which he had to pay back €225.The defendant couldn’t pay the remaining €70 of the cash as he had to transfer money back to his 18 year old son in Poland for schoolbooks.Later that morning, Klucsak visited Leszek and his wife Barbar at their home at 20 Celtic Apartments near Domino’s Pizza.The accused pulled a gun from beneath his coat and put it to his head.“He came in looked around and was nervous. He took a gun from inside his jacket – he grabbed me by my jacket and put a gun to my head. He said “Give me the money back or I will kill you.” He was swearing. I told him shoot me and he then put the gun hard into my head .“My wife ran out. He was trying to shake me but then when he realised she was gone and he pushed me on top of the fridge and he ran out,” said the defendant.Ms Majewski ran to a local clothing shop Wisteria and asked the proprietor to call the police saying her husband needed an ambulance and was covered in blood.Garda Darren Carter said he met Barbar in a very frightened state when she called Gardai.“She was in such a state of panic. She was trembling. She was just beckoning us to follow her,” he said.Garda Carter called to the home of the accused and asked about the alleged incident and if he had a weapon.He said the only evidence of any weapon was a cardboard box for a pellet gun.Kluczak, of 59 The Maples, Lismonaghan, Letterkenny, said it belonged to a friend who had moved to Dublin.He said he did not mix with the Polish community as they drank too much and did not have a good reputation.He said he visited the gym daily and took out adverts in a local Polish contacts website to help his business and that he did not collect welfare benefits.Barrister Peter Nolan said his client had denied that any gun was ever used.He put it to Mr Majewski that himself and his wife drank too much vodka and their apartment was strewn with empty alcohol bottles.The couple completely denied this and Garda Carter said this had not been the situation he found at the couple’s apartment.Barrister for the state, Ms Patricia McLoughlin, described this as a “mean lie” and that it was simply not true.She said the defendants accepted that they owed money but said the evidence was there that they had been threatened.The jury took an hour to reach their decision and found Kluczak guilty of making threats to kill and demanding money with menace.Judge John O’Hagan, addressing Letterkenny Circuit Court, said the accused had terrorised the couple.He sentenced  Klucsak to three years for each charge but suspended the last year and ordered both sentences to run concurrently.MONEY-LENDER JAILED FOR TWO YEARS AFTER THREAT TO KILL MAN WHO OWED €70 was last modified: July 21st, 2015 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) Tags:donegalletterkennymoney lenderPOLISHpost officelast_img read more

Lightning Strikes Islanders, 5-4

first_imgNEW YORK — Brian Boyle delivered a hard hit and then took advantage of a lucky carom to get the Tampa Bay Lightning a big playoff win.Boyle scored at 2:48 of overtime to lift the Lightning to a 5-4 victory over the New York Islanders on May 3 for a 2-1 lead in their second-round series.Seconds before the Lightning’s rush on their winning goal, Boyle delivered a hard shoulder hit to the head of Thomas Hickey on the left side after the Islanders defenseman had sent the puck forward. No penalty was called on the play.The Lightning got the puck and were on an odd-man rush as Victor Hedman fired a shot from the left side that was wide. The rebound came off the boards and right to Boyle in front at the right side of the goal and he tapped it in for the win.“I thought I had it, but I just missed it,” Hedman said, “and Boyle was there and prepared for the rebound and stuck it in.”Boyle added: “It was a fortunate bounce.”Nikita Kucherov tied it in the final minute of regulation, and Ryan Callahan, Hedman and Vladislav Namestnikov also scored for the Lightning. Ben Bishop stopped 35 shots.Islanders coach Jack Capuano couldn’t believe there wasn’t a penalty called on Boyle’s hit on Hickey.“It’s a direct shot to the head. I mean (he’s) probably going to get suspended a game,” Capuano said. “Those are the type of hits we’re trying to eliminate from our game. … It’s frustrating because the play is right there. (The official) is looking right at it.”Lightning coach Jon Cooper disagreed with his counterpart’s assessment.“How many hits were in that game, 70, 80 hits?” Cooper said. “I would say there were 15 harder than the one Boyle was involved in. … To me, that was a mild hit compared to some of the banging that went on in that hockey game.”Josh Bailey, back after missing the first two games of this series with an upper-body injury, had two goals, and Nick Leddy and Cal Clutterbuck also scored for the Islanders. Thomas Greiss finished with 36 saves.Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is May 6.With Bishop pulled for an extra skater, Kucherov’s NHL-leading seventh goal of the playoffs evened it with 38.4 seconds remaining. Jonathan Drouin, who returned earlier in the period after taking a hard hit from Hickey in the second, was skating toward the goal line and sent a centering pass back to Kucherov, who fired it past Greiss for the fourth tie in the seesaw game.“It’s kind of apropos the way the whole thing worked out,” Cooper said. “(Drouin) gets hit the way he did, that was a thunderous hit. … It was pretty cool that he was the guy that set up the (tying goal).”Clutterbuck had given the Islanders a 4-3 lead with 8:37 remaining as he got the puck on a deflection of an outlet pass by the Lightning off the skate of the Islanders’ Casey Cizikas, and beat Bishop on the blocker side high and in off the crossbar.Bailey put the Islanders ahead 3-2 with his second goal early in the third period. The Lightning tied it nearly a minute later when Valtteri Filppula found Namestnikov in front and he snapped it past Greiss at 3:25.Hedman gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead at 8:10 of the second, and Leddy tied it with 6:10 left in the period.The Islanders outshot the Lightning 17-9 in the first and got on the scoreboard 7:55 in on Bailey’s first goal in 22 games. It was second time in nine postseason games that the Islanders scored the first goal in a game.Boyle nearly scored several minutes later, but was called for high-sticking as he deflected the puck out of the air and in.Tampa Bay tied it in the final minute when Callahan tipped in a shot by Alex Killorn on the power play with 34 seconds remaining.“We knew they were going to push in front of the home crowd and I thought we did a good job in the first of kind of weathering that storm,” Bishop said. “A couple too many chances, but we did a good job of limiting them and obviously that big goal going into the second tied 1-1 I think was huge.”(VIN A.

West Indies sack Richard Pybus, name Floyd Reifer as interim coach ahead of World Cup

first_imgWest Indies appointed Floyd Reifer as their new interim head coach on Thursday, replacing Richard Pybus as part of a series of administrative changes less than two months before the World Cup.Pybus’ contract ran beyond the World Cup in England and Wales, but new Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Ricky Skerritt said changes were necessary and a “calculated strategic move” to reignite the passion for cricket in the region.Barbados-born Reifer played six Tests, eight one-day internationals and one Twenty20 for West Indies between 1997 and 2009 before moving into coaching.”Up to the end of 2018 Floyd Reifer had been identified as the outstanding emerging local coach,” Skerritt told a news conference in Antigua.”He displayed this by leading the West Indies A team successfully, including victories against the England Lions, and ended the past year by coaching the Senior men’s team to a T20 series win in Bangladesh.”England’s Pybus replaced Australian Stuart Law in January. He guided the team to a Test series win over England, while the ODI series against the top-ranked side ended 2-2.Among other changes, Skerritt overhauled the selection panel, with Robert Haynes replacing Courtney Browne as interim head of selectors.”We have found it necessary to immediately adjust our selection policy to become more open, inclusive, and player-centric,” he said.”I am therefore pleased to confirm that we have terminated the old embedded selection policy which secretly, but actively, victimised some players and banished them from selection consideration.”As part of the old selection policy, availability for domestic tournaments was a requirement to be picked for West Indies squads, but Skerritt said selectors would be allowed to pick all players who make themselves available.advertisementContractual disputes between players and CWI have weakened the team for several years, but Thursday’s announcement could pave the way for players such as Keiron Pollard to return to the ODI fold for the first time since 2016.”Participating in a World Cup is a career defining experience for West Indian players and coaching staff,” Skerritt said.”We therefore believe it is strategically more beneficial for a West Indian coach with the proven skill sets to have this exposure at CWI’s expense – rather than a foreign coach.”Twice winners West Indies open their World Cup campaign against Pakistan in Nottingham on May 31.Also Read | RCB performance will not affect Virat Kohli: Sunil Gavaskar to India TodayAlso Read | He’s unbelievable: Andre Russell’s six-hitting prowess floors Kuldeep Yadav and Jacques KallisAlso See:last_img read more
