Share Tweet Share LocalNews Petitioners won because they hid passport says lawyer for UWP by: – January 11, 2012 Share 200 Views 4 comments Sharing is caring! Geoffrey Letang: “They won becuase they hide their passport”.Attorney at Law Geoffrey Letang, one of the lawyers on the legal team representing the Petitioners; Ronald Green and Maynard Joseph, has announced that his clients lost on Tuesday because the Respondents supposedly hid their passports.The Opposition United Workers Party filed an election petition challenging the validity of the nomination of the prime minister and minister of education claiming that they were under oath of allegiance to a foreign State and as such they were disqualified from contesting the 2009 general election.On Tuesday the Petitioners election petitions were dismissed by Justice Gertel Thom who ruled that they had “failed to lead any evidence to show that Mr. Skerrit was by virtue of his own act under acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience or adherance to a foreign power of State”.However, Mr. Letang in an interview with Kairi FM News stated that the judge “refussed to allow” the Respondents; Roosevelt Skerrit and Petter Saint-Jean, to submit their passports or to testify and be cross-examined in Court.“Let me say that the Petitioners lost the case because the judge refused to allow the Respondents to submit their passport or to go in the witness box and give evidence where they would be cross examined. Their major defence; that is the Petitioners major defence is that the Petitioners did not prove that they had a passport that was their major defence. The Petitioners made application to the Court whereby requesting that the Respondents submit or disclose their passport and had the Court grant the application that would be the end of the matter.”(L-R): Petitioners; Ronald Green and Maynard JosephMr. Letang stated further that the Petitioners subpoenaed the Respondents to the witness box but that was objected by lawyers for the Respondents which the Court upheld.“The Petitioners also subpoenaed the Respondents to come to the witness box in as much as they did not disclose the passport but to come to the witness box. They made an application to object to the two subpoenas being issued, the Court upheld the objection and as a consequence set aside the subpoenas. So basically their victory is based solely of they hiding the passport, they won because they hide the passport.” Mr. Letang told reporters outside the Court on Tuesday afternoon that he would not issue any statement until he had read the judgment in its entirety.However, he told Kairi FM News that having read the judgment he is certain that there are grounds for appeal which is the next course of action for the legal team representing the Petitioners.“Having read the judgment I am convinced that there is sufficient ground for an appeal and that the Petitioners will be appealing the matter. So all is not lost and there is cogent evidence that the Petitioners did submit sufficient evidence in the Court in the absence of the passport to prove to the Court that at the time of nomination day the Respondents in question were not qualified to be so nominated and we will prove that to the Court of Appeal. We’re appealing Justice Thom’s decision, we have to respect the decision of the Court but we do not agree with her ruling or the judgment.”Mr. Letang says he “is very confident that if the matter goes to appeal that the outcome will be different”.

Arsenal have bolstered their academy with the signings of Jonathan Dinzeyi and Tim Akinola, according to The Sun of UK. The Gunners are aiming to improve their set-up, with former captain Per Mertesacker now overseeing youth development at the club. And according to The Athletic, former Tottenham defender Dinzeyi has crossed the divide in order to add another defensive option. The 20-year-old appeared once for Spurs, as part of a youthful side that was trounced 4-1 by Girona in pre-season two seasons ago. Having failed to replicate the development of peers Japhet Tanganga and TJ Eyoma, however, he found himself allowed to go on trial with Queens Park Rangers in February. He shortly returned to see out his Spurs contract, before being released at the end of the campaign. The England youth international will slot into Arsenal’s development squad. Alongside him will be former Huddersfield midfielder Akinola, following his release by the Terriers. The Gunners are aiming to bolster their academy with players that have fallen by the wayside elsewhere, in order to pick up some gems. Youth chiefs believe that even if these players may not have the potential to reach the first team, that they can fill gaps in their squad and possess resale value. With the cream of their crop set to train with Mikel Arteta’s first team, or be sent out on loan as Matt Smith and Zach Medley already have, youth bosses are aware that players like Dinzeyi and Akinola can be useful. read also:Die-hard Arsenal fan names newborn daughter after Ozil On his own game style, Dinzeyi compared himself with Spurs icon Jan Vertonghen back in 2017. He said: “I’ve been watching him a lot, even before he came to Tottenham, and I quickly realised that he’s very good on the ball when he steps out from the back. “I’ve been trying to add that to my game too.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentStunning Wedding Looks From Around The World8 Amazing Facts About Ancient EgyptCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?The Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Only Neymar, Moussa Dembele, Wissam Ben Yedder and Kylian Mbappe have scored more goals than the promising 21-year-old in the French top flight this term.The Nigerian’s outstanding form in front of goal has caught the attention of the Premier League’s elite in recent months, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Leicester City all credited with interest.According to Le 10 Sport, Liverpool have now entered the race for Osimhen after making their first contact with the forward’s camp.The report suggested that the Merseyside giants are laying the foundations ahead of a possible contract proposal for the talented Nigeria international.It’s claimed a fierce “battle” is likely to take place between England’s top clubs for Osimhen’s signature, with Lille demanding a fee of around £60 million for the youngster’s signature. Lille president Gerard Lopez has already revealed that he has received offers for the attacker.Earlier this month, Osimhen revealed his ambitions to “play for a big club in England” and thanked fellow countryman Odion Ighalo for the advice he’s given him at the start of his career.“Of course, one day I’d like to play for a big club in England,” he told The Independent.“I’ve spoken to Odion about it. He gave me very good advice, he’s a legend and a big brother.“My goal is to play at one of the biggest clubs in the world but now I’m very happy in Lille. “My priority is to play a lot of games. Signing for a big club and being on the bench is not exciting for me.”Tags: CoronavirusKylian MbappeLiverpoolVictor Osimhen

Nick Entin | Daily TrojanThe Trojan Marching Band performed at the USC-Utah St. football game during halftime on Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The band celebrated the music of Alan Silvestri, an award winning film composer who composed Forrest Gump, The Croods, Back to the Future and Captain America: The First Avenger.
USC has reached an agreement with United Airlines for the naming rights of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, according to Sports Business Daily. University officials said an agreement has not been finalized.According to Sports Business Daily, United would pay $70 million in a span of 15 years, making it the highest-priced naming rights deal in college football. The Los Angeles Times reported that Coliseum officials wanted to keep the words “Memorial Coliseum” in the stadium’s name.“As part of its agreement to operate the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and to support the renovation, restoration and operation of the Coliseum, USC has been pursuing a naming rights arrangement with various entities,” USC officials said in a statement emailed to the Daily Trojan. “At this time, no naming rights deal has been finalized.”The stadium is currently undergoing a $270 million-dollar renovation projected to be completed by the 2019 football season.The Coliseum has played host to the USC football team since it was built in 1923.
Katie Chin | Daily TrojanAs red and gold confetti streamed down onto the field at the Rose Bowl, there was a bittersweet realization for 37 members of the 2016 USC football team: This was the last time they would suit up for USC. Of the 37 players, a handful began to prepare for the NFL draft last May, where five were eventually drafted. However, not all of USC’s draftees will have the opportunity to suit up on Sundays this year. Obvious locks to make their team’s 53-man rosters included the dynamic duo of cornerback Adoree’ Jackson and receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who will take the field for the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers, respectively, this year. Jackson, the 18th overall pick, is competing for a starting spot this fall and will be fielding punts and kicks for the Titans. The path to the field is tougher for Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh’s second-round pick, as he was drafted into a talented receiving corps that includes Antonio Brown, arguably the best receiver in the league.Defensive tackle Stevie Tu’ikolovatu, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ seventh-round draft choice, was placed on injured reserve after a season-ending injury to his right knee during the preseason. Undrafted free agent and former USC offensive tackle Chad Wheeler made the New York Giants’ final roster and will be backing up first-round pick Ereck Flowers at left tackle this year. Receiver Isaac Whitney went undrafted in May but was signed by the Oakland Raiders and landed a spot on the team’s practice squad for the 2017 season. Guard Jordan Simmons was also picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Raiders but was later cut from both the final roster and the practice squad. Darreus Rogers, another receiver who went undrafted, was signed by the Seattle Seahawks in May but was cut this weekend. He is considered a candidate for making the practice squad if he clears waivers, which he is expected to do. Former Trojan running back Justin Davis will stay in Los Angeles as he was signed by the Rams and earned his way to a roster spot. Davis may have a chance to take up the main backup role this season behind Todd Gurley. Elsewhere in the league, tight end Taylor McNamara was picked up by the Cleveland Browns after the draft but was waived by the team this weekend. The Browns have not released their practice squad roster yet, but McNamara is not expected to earn a spot on it.Former USC offensive tackle Zach Banner, who was a first team All-Pac-12 selection in 2015, caught a tough break on Sunday. He was waived by the Indianapolis Colts, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2017 draft. Banner initially made the final 53-man roster before he was waived on Sunday to make room for the five other players the Colts claimed after final roster cuts were made around the league. This came as a surprise move from Indianapolis, as Banner played in all four preseason games and was considered a likely candidate to make the roster. The Cleveland Browns claimed Banner off waivers on Monday. Banner was not the only former Trojan to be shuffled around unexpectedly this weekend, with former Buffalo Bills sixth-round pick Kevon Seymour being traded to the Carolina Panthers. Seymour, a cornerback, was traded for former Panthers receiver Kaelin Clay and a future Panthers seventh-round draft pick. Seymour played in 15 games and started three for the Bills last year, and is currently slotted last among five corners on the Panthers’ depth chart. Carolina is a good landing spot for Seymour, who should have an opportunity to compete for playing time amidst the Panthers’ young secondary. Safety Leon McQuay III, who intercepted Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley with 27 seconds left in the Rose Bowl, was released Saturday after being drafted in the sixth round by the Kansas City Chiefs. This cut doesn’t come as too much of a surprise given that Kansas City possesses one of the better secondaries in the NFL, led by former first-team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler Eric Berry. McQuay is expected to make the team’s practice squad, however, unless he is picked up by another team. Another Trojan in Kansas City is guard Damien Mama, who was picked up by the Chiefs after going undrafted and signed to the team’s practice squad on Sunday.Entering the 2016 NFL season, USC had the fifth-most active players in the league with 46 athletes represented. USC leads the way in overall draft picks, with 502 all-time, putting the Trojans just in front of Notre Dame, which has 495. USC’s 80 first-round picks also take the top spot, edging Ohio State, which has produced 77 first-round selections.
