Clothes vendor executed in Albouystown

first_img…previously charged for murder, robberiesPolice in Georgetown are on the hunt for a male suspect who shot and killed a former murder and robbery accused on Thursday in Albouystown, Georgetown.Dead is 26-year-old Collis Collison, a clothes vendor of Lot 68 William Street, Kitty, Georgetown. He was celebrating his birthday on Thursday when he was killed at about 14:45h at Barr Street, Albouystown.Investigations into the fatal shooting are in progress and up to press time, the Police were still hunting the shooter.According to Police reports, Collison was standing on Barr Street, when the suspect approached him brandishing a firearm. The suspect then shot Collison and fled the scene.The Police said the injured man was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital by public spirited citizens. However, he died at about 15:26h while receiving treatment.Dead: Collis CollisonHis body is presently at the GPHC mortuary, awaiting a post-mortem examination excepted to be done today.Collison is a known character to the Police and has been slapped with various charges over the years but was never convicted.Back in May 2011, he was charged for the murder of Linden businessman Albert Joseph, called “Bolo”, who was killed during a robbery at his business place. He was subsequently freed of this charge in November 2014 in the High Court after the trial Judge upheld a no-case submission from his lawyer.Collison was also charged with two counts of armed robbery committed in Linden on Nigel Hescott and Rajindra Tiwari, who were robbed of their gold chains valued $160,000 and $250,000 respectively.The now dead man was also fingered as part of a gang which had been trailing and robbing incoming passengers from the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA).The racket was busted in October 2015 when they reportedly traced an off-duty Police Officer, who had picked up a relative from the airport, to his Kitty home. It was reported that having observed a vehicle following him, the off-duty rank inform his colleagues, who then went to his Kitty home and waited for his arrival.The vehicle which had been following the officer from the airport stopped a corner away from the rank’s home and two of three occupants exited. A stand-off subsequent ensued between the ranks who were waiting outside the residence and the bandits. This resulted in two of the perpetrators receiving injuries.Collison was subsequently slapped with two counts of discharging a loaded firearm at the Police as well as possession of an unlicensed .38 revolver and ammunition. However a year later in November 2016, he was freed of these charges as a result of the prosecution’s lack of evidence.Prior to his release, Collison had testified several times in the Commission of Inquiry into the March 2016 Camp Street Prison fire and unrest at the Georgetown penitentiary which resulted in the death of 17 inmates and left several others, including prison officers, injured.last_img read more

PFA backs Sterling after alleged racist abuse

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling was allegedly the subject of racist abuse during his side’s match against Chelsea © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 10 – The Professional Footballers’ Association said Monday it stood “shoulder to shoulder” with Raheem Sterling after the Manchester City player suffered alleged racial abuse during his side’s defeat against Chelsea.Chelsea and the police are investigating the incident at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, which was highlighted on social media. In an Instagram post on Sunday, Sterling accused British newspapers of helping to “fuel racism” with the way they portray young black footballers.Simone Pound, PFA head of equality and diversity, said: “Football is a microcosm of society and incidents such as this highlight the current political climate.“Raheem has made a stand by speaking out and we stand shoulder to shoulder with him against the discrimination of which he speaks.”A statement from the organisation on Monday added: “The PFA condemn, in the strongest terms, the increase in racial abuse our members have been receiving from the terraces.“We encourage all clubs to take the strongest possible action for fans found guilty of racially abusing players.“We commend Raheem for his professionalism during the incident and the statement he made via Instagram on Sunday,” it added.“We stand with him in calling for the press to consider the coverage of all footballers carefully, and to end their imbalanced coverage aimed at young, black players.”In his Instagram post Sterling, 24, referred to a story from January about City teammate Tosin Adarabioyo reportedly buying an expensive house despite never having started a Premier League match.“The young black kid is looked at in a bad light. Which helps fuel racism an(d) aggressive behaviour,” Sterling wrote.“So for all the newspapers that don’t understand why people are racist in this day and age all I have to say is have a second thought about fair publicity an(d) give all players an equal chance.”The PFA was also critical of the media’s portrayal of Sterling, who has previously faced negative publicity, often for non-football issues.“We have been aware for a few months of the targeting Raheem faces in the press — it is evident that he is often singled out and treated more harshly than his colleagues,” its statement said.“As such, these stories are fuelling racism within the game, as reports of racist abuse continue to rise.”Former England and Liverpool player John Barnes was the victim of persistent racism during his playing days, including monkey chants and having bananas thrown at him.The 55-year-old feels prejudice and discrimination extend far beyond football and stems from “hundreds of years of indoctrination”.“When people talk about, ‘Oh isn’t that terrible what happened to Raheem Sterling?’, you speak to black people in the inner cities and they say ‘this is what we go through every single day’,” Barnes told the BBC.“It’s not a surprise to us. It’s prevalent in society as you go into the inner cities and see how disenfranchised and what a lack of opportunities there are for members of ethnic minorities.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

We were drawn to the club’s rich history, exciting brand of football, strong leadership and, above all, its passionate fans.“We’ve had the great pleasure of getting to know Steve and have the utmost respect for him and his partners, Stephen, Jeremy and Martin.“We look forward to supporting Steve in his role as the operating co-owner and leader of the club. Crystal Palace has a storied legacy, a bright future and we’re proud to become a part of it.”Palace sit sixth in the Premier League table, having been rejuvenated under Pardew’s leadership this year, avoiding relegation last season and mounting an early push this term for a place in the Europa League.last_img read more

Socialcast: CEO’s Status Should Be Louder Than Yours

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… steven walling Tags:#enterprise#news#Products#saas Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowcenter_img IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts Socialcast, the enterprise microblogging platform, thinks that HR and C-level executives deserve extra recognition in the corporate status stream. Its new Broadcast Message feature gives announcements by higher-ups priority if they want it, effectively creating the Reply All of the micro-messaging world. For a startup whose entire value proposition is software that transforms work, the idea of enabling preexisting corporate hierarchies is an ill-considered move. Corporate hierarchy is what makes the enterprise tick, no doubt about it. But in communication, what’s needed is reducing noise, not the means to create more of it. For our bet, the best part of enterprise microblogging is that every employee decides what messages they receive. The ability to filter and follow selectively within the company is the feature that makes it more attractive than email. By allowing your boss or HR to bypass your filter and broadcast a message to you in Socialcast, the platform kills what there is to love about a Twitter for the enterprise. Though Socialcast’s powerful content sharing and aggregation abilities go far beyond what Yammer and other competitors in this space offer, this is a step backwards for how 2.0 your enterprise can get with their software. If CEOs want to grab your attention for company-wide announcements, that’s what reply all is for. Who knows, we could be wrong. Broadcasting messages could drive enterprise decision makers — the ones who sign the checks for IT solutions — wild with ecstasy. But for everyone else, any functionality that gives someone else more power to waste your time is a major buzzkill. last_img read more

Homoeopath who ran Sangli abortion racket held in Belagavi

first_imgThe Sangli police on late Monday night arrested Babasaheb Khidrapure, the homeopath who ran an illicit abortion racket in the district’s Mhaisal village, after the discovery of as many as 19 aborted female foetuses dumped in a sewer.The death of a 26-year-old Swati Jamdade on March 3 during a botched termination of her pregnancy, blew the lid off Dr. Khidrapure’s racket.Dr. Khidrapure and his wife were on the run since then. He finally fell into the Sangli police’s dragnet and was arrested late night Monday from Belagavi in the neighbouring State of Karnataka.He was produced amid high security at a local court in Miraj on Tuesday afternoon and sentenced to 10-day police custody till March 17.The village of Mhaisal witnessed a total shutdown in protest against the doctor’s heinous crimes, with citizens demanding speedy justice.Modus OperandiThe case once more has sharply fore-grounded the rampant female foeticide and gender inequality prevalent in the State’s rural hinterland.According to police sources and Sangli district authorities, Dr. Khidrapure was believed to be running an inter-State racket since 2008, involving doctors and patients from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, who came to his clinic, ‘Bharati Hospital’, to get the abortions done.“Other doctors used to visit him to get these extra-legal operations done, which normally took place on Mondays. The ground floor of his ‘clinic’ was equipped with surgical instruments, bio-medical mass and allopathy medicines. His accomplices then used a back-door to throw the aborted foetus in the sewer,” said the Sangli Superintendent of Police Dattatrey Shinde.Dr. Khidrapure had two rooms, hidden out of sight and equipped with instruments to perform the abortions in the ground floor of his two-storey ‘hospital’. The police said that since he did not have sonography machines, some doctors used to send patients to him for performing illegal abortions once the sonography tests had been conducted.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are also probing on whether abortion drugs were used by Dr. Khidrapure during his illicit operations, or whether he procured them from outside the State. Officials have sealed the medical store attached to his clinic. The construction of Dr. Khidrapure’s clinic itself illegal, said Civil Surgeon Sanjay Salunkhe, adding that Dr. Khidrapure had been booked for violating the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971, the Bombay Nursing Home Registration Act and the Medical Practitioners Act.“The homeopath’s nursing home was not registered under the Nursing Home Act and since he held a mere bachelor’s degree in homeopathy, he was not authorised at all to perform abortions,” he said.last_img read more
