CONCACAF sues Warner for US$50m

first_imgMIAMI (CMC):Trinidad and Tobago’s Jack Warner, the former vice-president of football world governing body (FIFA), is being sued for more than US$50 by the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association (CONCACAF).The new suit centres around a lavish soccer facility built in Trinidad with millions of dollars in funding from FIFA.The suit accuses Warner, who served as CONCACAF president for 20 years before resigning in 2011, of fraudulently securing FIFA and CONCACAF funding to develop the property.The site now includes a hotel and banqueting facilities and is said to be built on lands belonging to Warner.FIGHTING EXTRADITIONHis wife, his accountant and two companies linked to the 73-year-old are also named as defendants.Warner, who has in the past denied wrongdoing, is also facing corruption charges in the United States and remains in Trinidad, where he is fighting extradition.Warner, who was banned from soccer by FIFA in September, is one of four presidents who have been forced from office amid claims of wrongdoing, with three charged by the US Department of Justice.CONCACAF last week elected Canada’s Victor Montagliani as its latest leader and is on the verge of naming a new general secretary as soon as next week.last_img read more

Campaign to stamp out expired good launched

first_imgA campaign to inspect local vendors, outlets and supermarkets has commenced with the aim of preventing the ongoing epidemic of expired products from entering many Guyanese households.This was revealed by the Chief Meat and Food Inspector of the Food Safety Department (FSD), Onika Blackman, who noted that many persons are unaware of the dangers that expired food items can cause to humans once consumed.She noted that in many instances, vendors are warned that expired products are not to be sold but many are still found with these items.“If this is what we need to do, have an ongoing campaigns to ensure that these items are not being peddled on the marketplaces, well this is where we’ll have to go.”On Thursday, stalls at the Stabroek Bazaar were raided in search for expired products from officials of the FSD. In this scenario, many vendors were found in possession of goods that are deemed unfit for consumption as they would have surpassed the expiry date. The items were seized and destroyed. In some cases, the consumer information was printed in a different language while in others, the dates were removed. The expiry of some products dated back to 2017.“What happened is that at the time that we did our inspection, all the items that were found to be expired were removed from the premises and destroyed. The reason for this is because we don’t want expired items on the marketplace,” Blackman said.On the side of the consumers, many cannot afford to buy goods at regular prices hence they tend to purchase expired products which are sold at a lower cost.Blackman explained that in time to come, the Department is looking to conduct searches in larger outlets where the vendors might be obtaining their goods.“This is going to be extended not only to the bazaar that we did yesterday (Thursday). The exercise is going to be extended to all the other markets and other associated outlets that will be dealing with these particular items and we’ll be checking to ensure that no expired goods are on sale.”Furthermore, those that were found guilty of the offence were not required to face any charges. However, it is something that will be considered to ensure that expired products are not sold on the markets.Consumers are also advised to read the labels of items before purchasing and to be aware of expiry dates and the hazards that can be caused from its consumptions.“What I’d like to urge members of the public is that expired products being sold presently might be cheaper but in the long run, it can be more costly. When you purchase expired goods, there is no guarantee of what it is you’re going to actually be consuming,” the Chief Meat and Food Officer stated.The public is also advised to notify the Department of any cases where expired products are sold so that there can be some intervention to prevent the scourge of selling expired products.last_img read more

Cardinals storm back, take consolation

first_img“Yes, that was an issue for a while,” Schneider said Monday. “It was a challenge to refocus again, but I think our girls handled it well, and they ended up doing a good job.” Following the loss, Whittier defeated its next three opponents by a combined score of 39-9. The Cardinals rolled over Saddleback, 11-2, in Friday’s second round, then dumped El Segundo, 10-2, in Saturday morning’s third round. They faced Ayala for the fourth time this season in the consolation finals Saturday afternoon and breezed to an 18-5 victory. Whittier won all four games against the Bulldogs, including a 15-7 decision in last Monday’s CIF-SS championship game. The Masters Tournament involves the champions and runners-up, plus four at-large teams, from the recently completed six division playoffs. There is no divisional separation in the Masters. Foothill, the Division I champion, won the Masters title. Schneider, asked if participating in the Masters tournament is worth the effort, especially after winning a division championship, said, “I think a lot of the teams were pretty worn out, but there’s always a push for a state championship in water polo, and I think (the Masters) is a good step in that direction.” Whittier High School lost its opening-round game to Santa Barbara, then won three in a row to take the consolation championship at the CIF Masters girls water polo tournament on Friday and Saturday at the William J. Woollett Center in Irvine’s Heritage Park. Whittier coach Chris Schneider acknowledged it was difficult for his players to come back emotionally charged just four days after winning the CIF-Southern Section Division III championship. He said it “probably was a factor” in the 8-5 loss to powerful Santa Barbara. center_img La Mirada and California lead the area teams in this week’s CIF-SS preseason rankings for baseball and softball, respectively. The Matadores and Condors are No. 5 in Division III in their respective sport. Other area baseball teams ranked are La Habra, No. 10 in Division IV, and St. Paul, No. 10 in Division V. Cantwell Sacred Heart is among others receiving votes in Division V. In softball, St. Paul is No. 9 in Division IV, and Cantwell Sacred Heart, the two-time defending champion in Division VII, moves up to Division VI this season and is ranked No. 8.

School district, DWP reach deal

first_imgThe Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has agreed to pay L.A. Unified $900,000 cash, provide unspecified rate-rollbacks and offer future rate increase protection under a tentative settlement, officials said Thursday. The agreement, which seeks to settle a 2004 lawsuit that alleges the DWP overcharged the district millions of dollars for water service, has not yet been finalized. “Even though this is very little money, City Hall was taking this from teachers and students and it will now be returned,” board member David Tokofsky said. “This water settlement is about 1/100th the size of the potential for the electric settlement.” DWP officials said they had no comment since a settlement had not been finalized. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsA larger lawsuit, filed against DWP by LAUSD in 2000, alleges overcharging of electrical rates, said Kevin Reed, general counsel for the district. The district is seeking $90 million in damages in that case, for which trial has been set for October, Reed said. “We’re gratified the DWP was willing to settle with us, to recognize that our claims had value and to commit to putting money on the table to solve it, and it would be nice if they do that in the electricity case as well,” Reed said. He could not divulge details of the negotiated settlement or say how much the district had spent on the lawsuit. “It’s $900,000 cash, and we think considerable savings in the future and protection against other rate increases.” Just because a judge ruled in its favor on this case doesn’t mean the district is more likely to succeed in the other lawsuit, Reed said. “We’ve always had hope we would be successful in the other lawsuit,” he said. naush.boghossian@dailynews.com (818) 713-3722160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
