Taxi driver rewarded for helping kidnapped girl

first_imgHe added that the girl had asked him to contact her family members through Facebook as she had lost her phone.”I contacted her father through Facebook and was surprised to find out that the girl had been missing for five days.”NA’s father, Halil, said she had kidnapped by a group of unidentified people after withdrawing money from an ATM machine at Jambi Market on May 29.”She called and texted me the day after asking for help. I told her to run away, but she said she couldn’t because she was locked in a trunk and she did not know where she was,” Halil said as quoted by kompas.com. Dadang, a Jakarta-based taxi driver, received an award from his company for his heroic action of saving a kidnapped 20-year-old from Jambi on Tuesday.According to a statement issued by taxi operator PT Blue Bird, Dadang was looking for passenger when he saw the girl, identified only as NA, near the Empu Sendok bus stop in Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta. The driver recounted that the girl had looked disheveled and confused.“I talked to her and he asked me ‘Pak, where am I? What day is it?’” Dadang said in a statement.

I helped her because of what I believe in. I really don’t want any exposure,” Dadang said.PT Blue Bird appreciated Dadang’s goodwill despite the current difficult situation brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.”Dadang, whose income has dropped due to the pandemic, sacrificed his time and energy […] He chose not to pick up other passengers to help the girl.

UK poised to suspend Hong Kong extradition treaty: Newspapers

first_imgTopics : Education Minister Gavin Williamson declined to comment on the reports ahead of Raab’s statement, which is expected at around 1430 GMT, but he said Britain was always ready to speak out when it disagreed with Beijing.”We want to work with China and we always will want to work with China – it’s an important player on the world stage. But we must always, and will always, speak out where we think they’re doing things that are wrong,” he told Sky News.Any move on extradition would be another nail in the coffin of what former Prime Minister David Cameron has cast as a “golden era” of ties with Communist Party rulers in the world’s second-largest economy.But London has been dismayed by a crackdown in Hong Kong, which returned to Chinese rule in 1997, and the perception that China did not tell the whole truth over the coronavirus outbreak. Britain will on Monday suspend its extradition treaty with Hong Kong in a further escalation of its dispute with China over its introduction of a national security law for the former British colony, newspapers reported.Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, who on Sunday accused China of “gross” human rights violations, will announce the suspension of the treaty in parliament, the Times and Daily Telegraph newspapers said, citing sources.Britain’s Foreign Office declined to comment.center_img Last week Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered Huawei Technologies equipment to be purged completely from Britain’s 5G network by the end of 2027.China has accused Britain of pandering to the United States.Britain says the new national security law breaches the guarantees of freedoms, including an independent judiciary, that have helped keep Hong Kong one of the world’s biggest and most freewheeling financial hubs since 1997.Hong Kong and Beijing officials have said the law is vital to plug holes in national security defenses exposed by recent pro-democracy and anti-China protests. China has repeatedly told Western powers to stop meddling in Hong Kong’s affairs.Earlier on Sunday, China’s ambassador to Britain warned of a tough response if London attempted to sanction any of its officials, as some lawmakers in Johnson’s Conservative Party have demanded.”If UK government goes that far to impose sanctions on any individual in China, China will certainly make a resolute response to it,” Liu Xiaoming told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.”You’ve seen what happens in the United States – they sanction Chinese officials, we sanction their senators, their officials. I do not want to see this tit-for-tat happen in… China-UK relations.”Raab told the same program he would not be drawn on future additions to Britain’s sanctions list but he denied that Britain would be too weak to challenge China through this channel.last_img read more

“I did not consent to any Notice of Discontinuance” says Former Magistrate Tiyani Behanzin

first_imgLocalNews “I did not consent to any Notice of Discontinuance” says Former Magistrate Tiyani Behanzin by: – September 19, 2011 Sharing is caring! Share 18 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Share Tweet Former Magistrate Tiyani Behanzin. (file photo)Former Magistrate Tiyani Behanzin whose judicial review trial was discontinued on Friday last week has told Dominica Vibes News that he did not consent to it.The matter which was scheduled for hearing on Friday 16th September was discontinued by Justice Brian Cottle. Justice Cottle informed the Court that a Notice of Discontinuance had been filed in the matter and that none of the parties to the matter were present but that he is granting the discontinuance.Dominica Vibes News was unable to contact Mr Behanzin last week for comment; however in an exclusive interview this morning he informed that he did not give consent to the filing of this Notice of Discontinuance.“I did not consent to any Notice of Discontinuance and so it ought not to have been filed. Mr. Christopher filed a Notice of Discontinuance without my consent. A party to the procedure decides to file a notice of discontinuance and the Court granted it. The problem is that some lawyers tend to do what they want and take clients cases personally, and make decisions for clients. I also have a new attorney and that was not even mentioned in Court.”Mr Behanzin also explained that he did inquire about the matter from the High Court and was informed that it was not listed for trial.“The High Court said it wasn’t listed and there wasn’t any Notice of Discontinuance filed so I did not attend Court. Mr. Bruney also inquired and was told that the matter had not been listed for hearing.”According to Behanzin he heard a talk show host and his guest make the announcement ‘in a boastful way’ that he had discontinued the matter during a radio programme some months ago and alerted the Registrar that he had not consented to any Notice of Discontinuance.Mr Behanzin informed that his present attorney Mr David Bruney has written to the Court on his behalf and that the matter will be re-filed.When Dominica Vibes News contacted Mr Christopher for an explanation to the Notice of Discontinuance which had been filed he said, “I won’t comment, Mr. Behanzin has let me down.”We will continue to monitor this matter and provide further information as they become available.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Rematch with Texas is worth all of the hype

first_imgIt’s been more than a decade in the making, and it’s finally here. For the first time since Vince Young broke Trojan hearts in 2006, USC will face Texas. All 93,607 seats in the Coliseum have been sold, and this weekend’s primetime game has even caught the attention of celebrities like Lance Armstrong.But instead of talking about USC’s championship aspirations or Texas’ attempted recovery under new head coach Tom Herman, all the discussion leading up to Saturday’s tilt has been centered on the infamous 2006 Rose Bowl game. In fact, the biggest story so far is probably the fact that USC vacated its 2006 loss to Texas due to NCAA sanctions. Some in the media tried to frame the Trojans as sore losers who tried to erase embarrassing history, and outspoken Longhorn fan Armstrong slammed USC in an expletive-filled tweet.“Negative @USC, we were there. You lost the game fair and square,” Armstrong said. “Btw, @ReggieBush is a f—ing legend that you s— all over.”Forget the laughable fact that Lance Armstrong of all people said this — it’s not like his seven (stripped) Tour de France titles were “fair and square.” Forget the fact that USC actually vacated the loss on the orders of the NCAA. What’s most shocking is that this non-story gained so much traction in the first place. And that’s because there’s really nothing to discuss about Saturday’s game other than the 11-year-old shadow hanging over it.It wasn’t supposed to be this way: The Trojans opened the year ranked No. 4 in the AP poll, and the Longhorns were No. 23. Had both teams entered this week undefeated, it would have set the stage for a titanic clash of college football bluebloods with wind in their sails. Alas, Texas couldn’t hold up its end of the bargain, losing 51-41 to Maryland at home on opening day. Now, the Longhorns are all but out of the national discussion, and Vegas favors the Trojans by more than two touchdowns in Saturday’s game.Nevertheless, I’m sure everyone in Los Angeles is sick of re-living 2006’s heartbreak — so let’s actually break down this weekend’s matchup. Despite bookies pegging this as a mismatch, the point spread may be too high considering Texas rebounded from its Week 1 loss by annihilating San Jose State 56-0 last Saturday.But even with some momentum heading into the weekend, Texas will have to contain USC’s offense after giving up more than 30 points in eight of its 12 games last year. The team is also dealing with question marks at quarterback: sophomore Shane Buechele started against Maryland, but a shoulder injury thrust true freshman Sam Ehlinger into the spotlight a week later against the Spartans. With so little else going for them right now, the last thing the Longhorns need is uncertainty under center, but they will be relieved to see junior linebacker Porter Gustin listed as doubtful for USC, meaning one of the Trojans’ most dangerous pass rushers will be eliminated — or at the very least limited.Katie Chin | Daily TrojanGustin’s injury undoubtedly comes as a blow for head coach Clay Helton, and it feeds into the biggest concern for USC this week: the injury bug. Redshirt sophomore tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe, who was one of the team’s biggest red-zone threats last season, has been shut down indefinitely with a lower-body injury. Freshman defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu has been ruled out after he sprained his knee against Stanford in his first career start, and sophomore wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. still hasn’t seen the field this year thanks to an ankle issue. The Trojans probably feel good about their chances on Saturday regardless, but depth isn’t this squad’s strength. With no bye week this season, it’s a little concerning to see wear and tear taking its toll on the roster this early in the campaign.The last thing USC can afford to do, however, is tread lightly on Saturday. Putting too much focus on staying healthy for the long run could cause the season to implode in the near future. At the same time, the Trojans can ill-afford more injuries with back-to-back road games coming up — one of them on a short week. The difficulty of striking this balance is what might make this a trap game: It isn’t easy to play (or coach) with one eye on next week, but the Trojans may have to do so.I know it’s not the most compelling storyline for a sold-out primetime game. I suppose it makes sense, then, that everyone is still talking about 2006; even as a Trojan fan, it might be more compelling to argue about LenDale White’s fourth-down run or Reggie Bush’s bizarre lateral attempt than to discuss the Longhorns’ quarterback predicament or Gustin’s status for game day. But after USC snapped its three-game losing streak to Stanford last weekend, Saturday brings a chance to exorcise more demons. Though the Coliseum won’t quite feel like Pasadena did 11 years ago, the sellout crowd will give the contest a bowl-game feel. It’ll be a rollicking atmosphere, and perhaps the Trojans are raring to exact their revenge.Remember, though, that Texas robbed a national championship from USC. The best revenge won’t come this weekend, but rather through surviving and advancing. Then it’s on to Cal — and down the line, hopefully Atlanta.Ollie Jung is a senior majoring in  print and digital journalism. He is also the sports editor of the Daily Trojan.

West Ham extend away-day blues for Solskjaer’s pitiful Man Utd

first_imgThe match was drifting towards the interval before Felipe Anderson and Yarmolenko combined to sap United’s confidence with a goal in the 44th minute.United went close to an equaliser early in the second half as the rain came down in London, with Juan Mata missing from close range after an Andreas Pereira cross.Already short of options up front and missing creators in midfield, they lost Rashford just before the hour mark, replaced by the out-of-form Jesse Lingard.West Ham went close to doubling their lead shortly afterwards but David de Gea got down low to keep out an Anderson shot from a tight angle.United upped the pressure and West Ham had goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski to thank for keeping out a Harry Maguire strike from close range.But West Ham continued to look more dangerous on the break and made United pay when Ashley Young brought down Mark Noble on the edge of the penalty area.De Gea was a bystander as Cresswell curled a free-kick into the top right-hand corner to add to United’s pain. Share on: WhatsApp West Ham ManUtd London, United Kingdom | AFP |  West Ham inflicted more away-day pain on a poor Manchester United side on Sunday, lifting themselves to fourth in the Premier League with a comfortable 2-0 win at the London Stadium.Andriy Yarmolenko’s goal shortly before half-time and a wonderful late Aaron Cresswell free-kick extended United’s barren run on the road.United, who started the season by thumping Chelsea 4-0, have lost twice already in their opening six league games and lie seventh, without an away win in any competition since March.Injury-hit United were without midfielder Paul Pogba and forward Anthony Martial and huffed and puffed but failed to break down their dogged opponents.West Ham are riding high under Manuel Pellegrini, unbeaten since a 5-0 drubbing in the first match of the season and this victory followed a home win last season against United at the London Stadium.But it was a chastening day for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, just a day after champions Manchester City came close to matching United’s Premier League record for margin of victory — 9-0 against Ipswich in 1995.Solskjaer played the same side that triumphed against Leicester last week while Pablo Fornals came in for the injured Manuel Lanzini for the home side.Both sides were cagey at the start of the match, with neither side able to create clear-cut chances.West Ham looked the more inventive team when they broke forward while United looked ponderous in attack and lacking in ideas, with Marcus Rashford isolated up front.last_img read more
