‘FOR ADULTS ONLY’: Task force keeps eye on motels, lodging houses

first_imgPolice investigators said the girlchecked in with an older man who left hours before the body was discovered. ILOILO City – Motels, lodging housesand similar establishments were warned once more against letting minors in.There were dire consequences, according to Nestor Canong, head of the citygovernment’s Task Force on Morals and Values Formation. Last week Canong had a meeting withsome 40 owners and managers of these establishments and sought their commitmentto uphold the ordinance. To make sure the ordinance is beingfollowed, Canong said his task force would be conducting “discreet operations”.He did not elaborate. Regulation Ordinance ‎No. 2015-447prohibits these establishments from accepting minors and violators face a fineof P5,000, imprisonment of one year and possible cancellation of businesspermit. In June 2016, a 15-year-old naked girlwas found dead at a lodge in Arevalo district. Autopsy results showed she wasbeaten up and had genital lacerations. * any person who keeps or have in hiscompany a minor below 18 years old or who is 10 years or more his junior and isnot a family member, in any lodging houses, hotels, motels, beer joints,discotheques, cabarets, pension houses, saunas or massage parlors, beachresorts or similar places.

Suarez and club issue apologies

first_img Suarez apologised first via his Twitter account and then through a statement issued on the club’s website for an incident that came before he scored a dramatic equaliser seven minutes into stoppage time. “I am deeply sorry for my inexcusable behaviour earlier today during our match against Chelsea,” Suarez said in his statement. “I have issued an apology and have tried to contact Branislav Ivanovic to speak to him personally. I apologise also to my manager, playing colleagues and everyone at Liverpool Football Club for letting them down.” Luis Suarez has apologised to Branislav Ivanovic after biting the Chelsea defender during the 2-2 draw at Anfield. Earlier on Twitter, Suarez had written: “I’m sad for what happened this afternoon, I apologize Ivanovic and all football world for my inexcusable behaviour. I’m so sorry about it!!” The club have also responded to the incident, which came when the two players clashed following a challenge in the Chelsea penalty area. The club’s managing director Ian Ayre has cancelled a trip to Australia to deal with the fallout from the incident. In a statement, he said: “Luis has made an unreserved apology for his actions today. His behaviour is not befitting of any player wearing a Liverpool shirt and Luis is aware that he has let himself and everyone associated with the club down. We will deal with the matter internally and await any action from the FA.” Manager Brendan Rodgers had claimed in his post-match interviews that he had not seen the incident, but later said: “Having reviewed the video footage and spoken to Luis, his behaviour is unacceptable and I have made him aware of this.” Suarez looks set to face a Football Association investigation into the incident, which was not seen by referee Kevin Friend but later highlighted by numerous television replays. It is not the first time Suarez has brought controversy to the club – he was banned for eight matches last season after being found guilty of racially abusing Patrice Evra – and he has previous history of biting. Immediately prior to joining the Reds in January 2011 he served a seven-match ban while at Ajax after sinking his teeth into PSV Eindhoven midfielder Otman Bakkal. Suarez later returned to Twitter to say he had spoken directly to Ivanovic. “I’ve just spoken to Ivanovic on the phone and I could apologise directly to him. Thanks for accepting,” he wrote. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Silva signs new City deal

first_img Press Association City have been forced to work within the constraints of a net £49million cap on their transfer spending this summer as punishment for breaching the Financial Fair Play regulations of European governing body UEFA. But they may still be pleased with their business with several new arrivals and new deals for three key players. Silva’s new contract comes after Samir Nasri and Aleksandar Kolarov also agreed new terms. The latest news also came a day after the club completed the £32million signing of Porto defender Eliaquim Mangala. Mangala joins former Porto team-mate Fernando, goalkeeper Willy Caballero, defender Bacary Sagna and midfielder Bruno Zuculini as new faces at City. England midfielder Frank Lampard, who is to join sister club New York City FC, has also agreed a loan move to the Etihad Stadium. The Spanish playmaker has been one of the key performers in City’s new trophy-filled era, winning two Premier League titles and two domestic cups since his £26million move from Valencia in 2010. With a new five-year contract now signed, Silva hopes to go on to win more silverware with a club whose ambitions seem limitless. The 28-year-old told the club’s website, “From the moment I joined the club four years ago it has felt like a second home to me. “On and off the pitch, I feel incredibly content and fulfilled professionally and personally, so why wouldn’t I want to stay and keep winning trophies with this fantastic team? “Over the last four years, we have achieved so much together, establishing City as a dominating force in England and now, when I look around this dressing room, I can see no reason why we won’t become one of the top teams in the world. “It was a straightforward decision to extend my stay here and spend my peak years at Manchester City, a club with unbelievable fans who have always supported me.” Silva joined City fresh from World Cup success with Spain four years ago and almost immediately lived up to his high-profile billing. His first season at the club ended on a high as City ended a 35-year wait for a trophy by winning the FA Cup. He was devastating in the early months of the next campaign – which ended with the club’s dramatic first Barclays Premier League title success – most notably in a memorable 6-1 win at rivals Manchester United. He went on to win Euro 2012 with Spain and was again instrumental as City regained the Premier League crown and won the Capital One Cup last season. David Silva expects to be challenging for major honours at Manchester City for years to come after committing to the champions until 2019.last_img read more

Pinnick Restates Faith in Rohr to Make Eagles Soar

first_imgRUSSIA 2018Olawale Ajimotokan in AbujaPresident of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Mr. Amaju Pinnick, has restated his faith Super Eagles Franco-German gaffer, Gernot Rohr, to deliver at the World Cup in Russia next.Rohr was rewarded with a fresh two-year contract a fortnight ago after leading Nigeria to qualify for Russia 2018 with Group B last game against Algeria to spare. Speaking on the World Sport programme of the Cable News Network (CNN) from the station’s London studio yesterday,Pinnick is also banking on the youthful team assembled by Rohr to do Nigeria proud next year.“We have a coach who has the mentality of a winner, and he has imbibed the players with the same attitude.“We can do very well at the World Cup in Russia. I am very delighted that we have a team for tomorrow; a team for the next (2022) World Cup finals,” stressed Pinnick who also doubles as a CAF executive committee member.“First and foremost, I must commend all the 32 qualified teams because they came from very intense qualifying campaigns. What will then matter at the finals in Russia are factors such as the quality of preparation by each team, the mental state of the players and prayers from back home.He admitted that the Super Eagles were in a decent group.“We are in a ‘decent group.’ Argentina have such a high pedigree and Croatia and Iceland are very good. Iceland reached the quarter –finals of the European Championship last year and topped their qualifying group, so there are no minnows in there.He commended the African football body CAF for its decision to support the continent’s five flagbearers’ preparations for Russia 2018 with much –needed cash..“We are banking on good preparation and the belief that our young players have in themselves. I am also happy that CAF is weighing in with some good money ($500,000 each) to support the preparation of the African flag –bearers. I can also tell you that CAF is looking to see an African team in the semi –finals or even to go all the way to win the trophy.”Pinnick said nobody gave the Super Eagles any chance of defeating Argentina in a friendly in Krasnodar 20 days ago.“African players light up the English Premiership every weekend. Liverpool FC appear not to be able to do without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, and Chelsea FC sometimes struggle without Victor Moses. We have bright prospects in Russia.”Nigeria will trade tackles with two –time world champions and reigning world vice champions Argentina, Iceland and Croatia in Group D at Russia 2018.Argentina narrowly won all four previous FIFA World Cup clashes with Nigeria (all at group phase: 1994, 2002, 2010, 2014) but the Eagles have lashed the La Albiceleste in two prestige friendlies (2011 and 2014), while honours in two clashes in the final of the Men’s Olympic Football Tournament (1996 and 2008) have been shared.Eagles have never played Croatia – the small East European nation that shocked the world by winning bronze medals at her maiden FIFA World Cup appearance in 1998.Nigeria and Iceland have met only once before in history – a friendly match in Reykjavik on 22nd August 1981 that the Strakarnir Okkar (Our Boys) won 3-0. It was part of the Eagles’ preparation for the final round of qualifiers for the 1982 FIFA World Cup, which they lost to Algeria home and away.Incidentally, the two teams’ clash in Russia will also be on the twenty –second day of the month – 22nd June 2018 in Volgograd.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
