Ugandan Woman Found Guilty of Drug Trafficking

first_imgFollowing several hours of deliberation, the Jury at Criminal Court ‘C’ on Monday, April 7, found Shirat Nelwadda, a Ugandan citizen, guilty of trafficking 1.2 kgs of narcotic drugs valued at US$30,000 in the country.The jury said prosecution produced overwhelming evidence that convinced them to bring down the guilty verdict against the defendant.The court will announce the number of years she will spend in jail at the Monrovia Central Prison at a later date.After the verdict Monday, April 7, Nelwadda broke down in tears, but her lawyers took serious exception to the jury’s verdict, describing it as a “miscarriage of justice.”She was indicted by the government with multiple crimes, including unlawful possession, trafficking and distribution of narcotic drugs.She denied all of the charges when they were read to her in open court by the clerk of the court.Details of the document that brought Nelwadda under the jurisdiction of the Criminal Court— a copy of which is in the possession of this paper— said, on November 30, 2013, she was arrested with 1.2 kilograms of heroine valued at US$30,000 by joint security assigned at the RIA.The document further quoted police as saying: “the drugs were in a black suitcase that she was traveling with.”It continued: “During the investigation, the defendant said she was traveling to Liberia for the first time to meet a “boyfriend” called Ekina, who she claims not to know, but was told to meet by Nalutarya Laila, her girlfriend in Zama, Kampala, the capital city of Uganda.”It further alleged that “upon her arrival at RIA and subsequent arrest with the drugs , defendant Nelwadda  could neither give the contact address or telephone number of the so-called boyfriend, who she claimed is the owner of the drugs she was carrying.”“There and then, the crimes of unlawful possession, trafficking, and distribution of a narcotic drug the defendant did commit,” police concluded in the document. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

One of these managers to replace Pardew at Newcastle?

first_img 6 6 Steve Bruce – boyhood Newcastle fan to return ‘home’? Click the arrow for more Pardew alternatives – Former Newcastle striker Micky Quinn believes Alan Pardew’s time as Newcastle manager is up and has lost the Magpies dressing room. Here, talkSPORT looks at some potential replacements, beginning with Hull manager Steve Bruce, who was rejected by the Toon as a youngster, before embarking on a playing career that peaked with glory at Man United. As a manager, his stock is high having led Hull to an FA Cup final appearance and he has built a strong squad, with a particularly fruitful summer window. Bruce, a north east native and former manager of Sunderland, said: “I find it very disrespectful that I am linked with somebody else’s job when he is still in the job.” Nice swerve, Brucie! Tim Sherwood – Spur of the moment appointment? – Another manager who is out of work is Tim Sherwood after leaving Tottenham in the summer. He’d probably tell you how brilliant he is at his job, while talking about himself in the third person. Joking aside, though, Sherwood is something of an unknown quantity, having been thrust into the Spurs job midway through last season, with mixed results/ There was outrage when Chris Hughton was sacked as Newcastle manager in 2010, but right now there wouldn’t be too many tears shed into the Tyne if current boss Alan Pardew loses his job.From start to finish, Toon fans sitting in the away end at St Mary’s for the 4-0 loss to Southampton told Pardew exactly what they thought of him. It wasn’t good.If things continue this way, it’s not looking good for someone who was rewarded for finishing fifth in the 2011/12 season with an eight-year contract, but who are the potential replacements?Take a look at the gallery above. 6 Frank de Boer – pass the Dutchie? – He was heavily linked with the Tottenham job before Mauricio Pochettino was given the role and De Boer is thought to be keen to try his luck elsewhere. Under De Boer at Ajax, current Newcastle man Siem de Jong was a key player and the attacker eventually became the boss’ captain. Neil Lennon – champion! – Like David Moyes, Lennon is out of work at the moment, so Mike Ashley would not have to pay any clubs compensation on top of any payout made to Pardew. Lennon left Celtic at the end of last season and appears eager to try his hand at a more challenging league having won three league titles and two Scottish Cups in four years. David Moyes – better the ex-Red Devil you know? – Rio Ferdinand has not exactly given Moyes a glowing reference, revealing in his new autobiography: “Sometimes our main tactic was the long, high, diagonal cross. It was embarrassing.” However, the former Everton and Man United manager is still among the favourites to land the job, and Man United’s tough start to the season – before they splashed silly money – has backed up assertions that Moyes was dealt a losing hand at Old Trafford. Besides, Ferdinand’s gripe that Moyes stated he was dropped in favour of players with ‘more pace’ was hardly shocking. Tony Pulis – if the cap fits… – Pulis won many admirers for halting Crystal Palace’s slide last campaign and is out of a job since his unexpected departure days before the start of the Premier League season. The defence would certainly be a lot more organised with him around, and he represents tried and tested managerial experience with relative success. 6 6 6last_img read more

MAN RESCUES TWO WHALES WHICH WERE LEFT TO DIE ON DONEGAL BEACH

first_imgAustrian woman Antonia Leifner watches agonisingly as the 5 pilot whales slowly die on the beach at Ballyness Bay, Falcarragh, Co. Donega. (North West Newspix)A fed-up whale watcher has miraculously rescued two pilot whales which had been left to die on a Falcarragh beach.The two Pilot Whales were part of the pod of 13 whales which had beached at Ballyness Bay.The whales had been rescued twice after first being spotted on Monday morning by a passing jogger. However seven of the whales beached again on Monday afternoon at 5pm.A decision was made by the National Parks and Wildlife Service to leave the whales to die on the beach and then to bury them.Passers-by were left visibly upset as the whales tried to breath on the sand.The NPWS had warned people not to touch the animals and Gardai had advised people not to visit the beach. However Gareth Doherty, the owner of a local sailing company who had ben involved in the original rescue of the whales, decided he could not stand by and watch.He gathered some other volunteers and arrived back at the beach in the early hours of this morning.By the time the whales were put back to see they had been left stranded on the beach for around 36 hours.Two of the whales were in a bad condition but two of the others, measuring 3.8 and 4 metres in length, were still in good conditions.Aided by the high tide around 4am, Gareth and other volunteers managed to put the two whales back out to sea. Garreth said “We could not just stand by and watch these animals suffer anymore.“They were in up to two feet of water which kept them alive and in a hole which must have been dug by the council.“We put them on their side and managed to get them out into deeper water.“We brought them out into deeper water and they swam away. We haven’t seen them since but we will monitor them and put them back to sea again if need be. “As an animal lover I just could not sit back and watch them die without trying to save them,” he said.MAN RESCUES TWO WHALES WHICH WERE LEFT TO DIE ON DONEGAL BEACH was last modified: July 9th, 2014 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:Ballyness BeachdonegalFalcarraghGareth Dohertylast_img read more

SWILLY ROVERS U15 CUP WIN AGAINST ALL THE ODDS

first_imgUNDER 15 SFAI NATIONAL CUP QUARTER FINALSwilly Rovers 2 – 1 Kingdom BoysSwilly Rovers held on narrowly after first half goals by Conor Gormley and Ronan Docherty got them through to a semi-final spot with top schoolboy club St Kevin Boys from Dublin after Midfielder Diarmuid O’Connor halved the deficit for the Kerry side down in Listowel. The Ramelton side started slowly and on 6mins, Swilly net minder Dane Dunworth pulled off a super save from midfielder Kennedy. On 18mins from a Shane McNamee corner a goalmouth scramble occurred and Conor Gormley slotted to the net for the lead. It was all Swilly now and Ronan Docherty scored from 3yds after a free kick by McNamee was hit into the area. McNamee himself could have made it three only for the Kingdom keeper McKivergan to save well. Swilly were keeping their shape well with outstanding displays all around the field. The 2nd half started with the Kerry team pushing more forward and great defending from the back four and another amazing display by Dunworth in goals kept the two goal margin. Midfielder O’Connor scored with 17mins left to set up a very nervous ending for McNamee’s team. With the Kingdom Boys pushing high up the pitch, they started to leave gaps in their defence and from a sweeping move involving Toye, Hanlon & McNamee who sent Cameron Gormley through on goal but the diminutive winger shot narrowly wide. With 8mins remaining McNamee went through on goal and was taken down by the Kerry side’s keeper for a penalty. With the striker injured, up stepped Conor Gormley who sent the keeper the wrong way but just wide. The Kingdom Boys threw the kitchen sink at Swilly and McKelvey cleared off the line with Dunworth beaten. With seconds remaining, the team from Tralee won a free kick on the edge of the area and Irish International Rian O’Sullivan sent the ball high into the top corner only for Dunworth to make a magnificent save to push it out for a corner. With the Referee indicating that this was the last play, the resulting corner was cleared and Swilly got through to the Semi-Finals. Every player give 100% and were amazing Swilly Rovers – D Dunworth, C Doherty, B Patterson, J McKelvey, R Docherty, C Gormley, R Toye, B Diver, L Hanlon, S McNamee, C Gormley. (Subs) J L Blaney, D Morrison, Ray Boyce, Ronan Boyce, C Brogan, D Greene. Manager’s ReactionAfter everything that went on this last month with this match being a home match, then being told, we can’t play in Swilly Pk. Then being told it was to be played in Lucan, South Dublin as a neutral venue. Again being changed to Listowel by the SFAI. We decided as a club to travel and thankfully it worked out for us. The team were outstanding in every area of the pitch. One thing that needs to be said is a big fantastic thank you to Kingdom Boys who made a gesture of paying for all officials for the game. And to Listowel Celtic and their officials for the great hospitality they showed Swilly Rovers Schoolboys. Now a semi-final against one of the top schoolboy clubs in Europe. Home advantage but hopefully not Dublin. SWILLY ROVERS U15 CUP WIN AGAINST ALL THE ODDS was last modified: April 27th, 2014 by John2Share 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:CUPSFAIswilly roversU15slast_img read more
