Second Sexual Offences Court to open this month end

No Comments

first_imgThe United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) has said that the agency is eyeing April 29 for the opening of the second Sexual Offences Court.This is according to sources attached to the agency.The new court will be opened in Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) and would be the second of its kind in the country.In November 2017, when the first Sexual Offences Court opened, plans were announced to construct similar structures in Berbice and Essequibo in an effort to reduce the increased incidence of such cases.In declaring the court open, acting Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards drew reference to statistics which have shown that sexual offences have been on the rise both regionally and locally.She pointed out, “When we look at statistics, more than 50 per cent of the cases for the Demerara Assizes over the last two sessions showed us that sexual offences comprised half of the list. So if half of the list comprised sexual offences, it meant that the other indictable offences like robbery and rape took second place…that is something we have to address”.The acting Chancellor reminded that sexual offences affect victims emotionally, psychologically and physically and those effects could be both long or short term and it could also affect the development of the victims. These victims, she said, require specialist treatment on the part of everyone concerned, be it the police, investigators, medical practitioners, NGOs, prosecution or the court.During the last quarter of 2018, Police statistics showed that rape cases have increased.Top Cop Leslie James told the media that rape cases had increased by seven per cent, with 202 cases reported in 2018 compared to 189 cases in 2017.The Sexual Offences Court was birthed out of the Sexual Offences Act 2010, which was spearheaded by former Human Services and Education Minister Priya Manickchand. The former Minister had led what was then called the “Stamp it Out” campaign in 2010 which saw widespread consultations around the country with regards to sexual offences and other major human rights issues facing Guyana.A Sexual Offences Court is different from other courtrooms as it includes features which will make victims more comfortable while testifying against their attackers.last_img read more

Fallen giants Inter Milan still chasing Mourinho magic

No Comments

first_imgSince those days it has been lean times for the 18-time Italian and three-time European champions, with the only title of any sort a 2011 Italian Cup crown.Luciano Spalletti’s side return to the Champions League for the first time since the 2011-2012 season on Tuesday when they host Tottenham at the San Siro.Expectations are high, but their return comes against a backdrop of continuing crisis as the Nerazzurri lie a lowly 15th with just one win and four points from four games.Inter, who finished fourth last season, had looked a serious rival to seven-time reigning champions Juventus with summer signings such as Radja Nainggolan, Matteo Politano, Sime Vrsjalko and Keita Balde.“The responsibility is mine if a lot of players are showing less than their full potential,” said Spalletti after Inter loanee Federico Dimarco scored the winner for Parma on Saturday. “I must think about improving the team and doing my job well because I have a strong squad here.”The task of stopping Juventus on the domestic scene was already daunting, but it now looks impossible. “It’s crisis… Inter are lost and unable to react,” wrote Gazzetta Dello Sport.“Morale in pieces,” added Corriere Dello Sport.The headlines have been the same since Mourinho packed his bags for Real Madrid in 2010, with 11 coaches succeeding the current Manchester United manager in the Inter Milan hotseat.Time running out for Inter Milan’s head coach Luciano Spalletti © AFP/File / Miguel MEDINAFirst up was Rafael Benitez who arrived in Italy after a six-year reign at Liverpool. The Spaniard’s stay was to be brief — six months in total. Despite winning the Italian Super Cup and the Club World Cup, he clashed with then owner Massimo Moratti over demands for new players.Inter fell to the first loss of their Champions League defence at Tottenham in November 2010.Ex-AC Milan star Leonardo’s appointment after Benitez was a bolt from the blue, arriving from Inter’s bitter city rivals with whom they share a stadium. Despite some success he lasted just six months, as the holders crashed out of the Champions League.– Financial turmoil –Coaches followed one after the other — Gian Piero Gasperini, Claudio Ranieri and Andrea Stramaccioni, the latter leading Inter to ninth in 2013 as they failed to qualify for Europe for the first time in 15 seasons.Walter Mazzarri lasted four months before former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini returned to the club he led to three straight Serie A titles between 2006 and 2008.Mancini lifted them to fourth, just outside the Champions league places in 2016, but left to be replaced by Frank De Boer who lasted just 85 days.Ex-Roma and Zenit St Petersburg coach Spalletti took over in June 2017, but his days now look numbered too.The past eight years have been overshadowed by financial turmoil, both in Italy and the club.Moratti — club president from 1995 to 2013 — oversaw one of the most successful eras of the club, bringing in stars such as Brazilian Ronaldo, Christian Vieri, Youri Djorkaeff, and Diego Simeone. He also convinced Marcello Lippi and Mourinho to manage the club.Captain Mauro Icardi has yet to score for Inter Milan this season © AFP/File / Miguel MEDINAMoratti sold his shares to Indonesian businessman Erik Thohir in October 2013, leading to hopes of a brighter future, but the club have won nothing since.The club’s unstable financial situation saw Thohir relinquish control to Suning Holdings Group in 2016 who became the first Chinese owners in Serie A history. Chinese owner Zhang Jindong promised “to take this club back to the heights and build a great team and fill it with superstars”.Captain Mauro Icardi’s future however looks in doubt with reports Mourinho wants the Argentine to join United in January.The Italian press have called for Mourinho to return, with Inter idol Simeone expressing his interest should he leave Atletico Madrid. Tuesday’s game against Tottenham could be decisive for Spalletti’s future.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Inter Milan are a shadow of the team that Jose Mourinho led to a historic treble in 2010 © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFMilan, Italy, Sep 17 – Eight years have elapsed since Jose Mourinho’s reign as Inter Milan coach ended on a historic high of Champions League glory, and the fallen Italian giants are still struggling to recapture that magic from Madrid.The Portuguese oversaw the most successful season in the club’s history — a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu completed the first treble of Serie A, domestic Cup and Champions League in Italian history.last_img read more
