Muhammad Ali hospitalised

first_imgnull SHARE SHARE EMAIL June 03, 2016 COMMENTS Boxing great Muhammad Ali is hospitalised in the Phoenix area with what two people familiar with his condition say may be more serious than his previous hospital stays.The people told The Associated Press on Thursday that Ali is fighting respiratory issues that are complicated by the Parkinson’s that he was diagnosed with in the 1980s. The two spoke separately in describing Ali’s condition, which they say is concerning to family members.The sources declined to be identified because they were not speaking on behalf of the family.A spokesman for Ali sent out a release earlier on Thursday saying the former heavyweight champion is being treated at an unidentified hospital for a respiratory issue. Spokesman Bob Gunnell said that the 74-year-old was in fair condition, and that a brief hospital stay was expected.Decline of Ali’s healthAli has been hospitalised several times in recent years, most recently in early 2015 when he was treated for a severe urinary tract infection initially diagnosed as pneumonia.Ali has looked increasingly frail in public appearances in recent years, including on April 9 when he wore sunglasses and was hunched over at the annual Celebrity Fight Night dinner in Phoenix, which raises funds for treatment of Parkinson’s.His last formal public appearance before that was in October when he appeared at the Sports Illustrated Tribute to Muhammad Ali at The Muhammad Ali Centre in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, along with former opponents, George Foreman and Larry Holmes.Ali has suffered from Parkinson’s for three decades, most famously trembling badly while lighting the Olympic torch in 1996 in Atlanta. Despite the disease he kept up a busy appearance schedule until recently, though he has not communicated verbally in public for years.Parkinson’s: A fallout of his career?Doctors say the Parkinson’s was likely caused by the thousands of punches Ali took during his career, where he travelled the world meeting opponents in big fights.An iconic figure who was at one point arguably the most recognized person in the world, Ali has lived quietly in the Phoenix area with his fourth wife, Lonnie, who he married in 1986.News of his hospitalisation brought well wishes from boxers and others on Twitter, including Sugar Ray Leonard, who modelled his career after Ali.“Prayers & blessings to my idol, my friend, & without question, the Greatest of All Time @MuhammadAli ! #GOAT,” Leonard wrote.

Indian Premier League 2016, Match 29, Rising Pune Supergiants vs Mumbai Indians: As It Happened

first_imgLeading from the front, skipper Rohit Sharma smashed a match-winningunbeaten 85 off just 60 balls to guide defending champions MumbaiIndians to a comfortable eight-wicket victory over Rising PuneSupergiants in the Maharashtra derby of the Indian Premier League on Sunday. (Scorecard)Highlights:Rohit Sharma is adjudged Man of the Match. “I think it was a great effort from the bowlers. One department where we didn’t do well was our fielding. Dropping catches is not a good sign. Restricting them to 160 was a great effort, considering the way they started. Coming back, and tightening up was important, and the spinners and the fast bowlers did a brilliant job. I’ve not had a great time batting first, but when I’m chasing, obviously, the score is in front of you, I plan my innings really well. The win is important for us, last three games have been superb, but there is room for improvement in our fielding.”MS Dhoni: “We didn’t bat well after the 10th over. That includes me also, on this kind of wicket, 23 off 24 doesn’t really help the team. At times we were thinking too much about what happens if we lose a few wickets. What we need to do is go out there, express ourselves. The bowling has shown improvement, but it doesn’t really count if you’re not winning games. We will change a few theories and try a few more things, and hopefully it will come off.” Mumbai Indians:23.20 IST: Rohit Sharma carries his bat and remains unbeaten on 85 from 60 balls with 8 boundaries and 3 sixes.

Rohit Sharma wins the toss, Mumbai Indians will bowl first against Pune Supergiants. Preview:Rising Pune Supergiants will look to get their campaign back on track as they take on defending champions Mumbai Indians in the Maharashtra derby of the Indian Premier League (IPL) here on Sunday.Pune have lost five of their seven games so far and are presently sixth in the eight team tournament with just four points. Their Sunday’s opponents, captained by Rohit Sharma, are third on the points table with four wins from eight matches — more importantly two in the last two.For Mahendra Singh Dhoni led Pune, time is running out. They have to turn things around in the next few matches to be in contention for the top four.advertisementWhat would boost the confidence of Pune is the fact that they came out on top the last time these two sides had met. Mumbai had lost the game by nine wickets in the season opener but they are a different side now who are firing on all cylinders. And that is precisely why it would not be a cakewalk for the hosts.Pune were dented a few days back as Faf du Plessis and Kevin Pietersen were ruled out of the IPL due to injuries but Ajinkya Rahane, Steven Smith and Dhoni have done well.They will also be boosted by the fact that in-form Australian top-order batsman Usman Khwaja has come in as du Plesis’ replacement.But Pune’s main worry has been their bowling. Despite putting up a massive 195 on the scoreboard against Gujarat Lions on Friday the bowlers failed to defend it and lost the game by three wickets.The likes of Albie Morkel, Ashok Dinda, Thissara Perera, and Ravichandran Ashwin all were clobbered to the ropes while only Rajat Bhatia and young spinner Murugan Ashwin were able to pull things back a little. But what is hurting them the most is the lack of a wicket-taking bowler.Mumbai on the other hand are brimming with confidence after two consecutive wins. The batting has been well led by captain Rohit Sharma and the finishing touches have been provided by Kieron Pollard.The only thing that could be a bit of a worry would be the inconsistency of Jos Buttler in the middle overs.The bowling unit has been spearheaded by the New Zealand fast bowling duo of Tim Southee and Mitchell McClanaghan who have been doing a great job, ably supported by youngster Jasprit Bumrah.SquadsRising Pune Supergiants: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain and wicketkeeper), Ajinkya Rahane, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh, Jaskaran Singh, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ankit Sharma, Albie Morkel, Irfan Pathan, Ishant Sharma, Ishwar Pandey, Thisara Perera, Saurabh Tiwary, RP Singh, Rajat Bhatia, Ankush Bains, Baba Aparajith, Murugan Ashwin, Ashok Dinda, Deepak Chahar, Scott Boland, Peter Handscomb, Adam Zampa.Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Parthiv Patel (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Jos Buttler, Mitchell McClenaghan, Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Tim Southee, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Gopal, R Vinay Kumar, Corey Anderson, Unmukht Chand, Marchant de Lange, Siddhesh Lad, Kishore Kamath, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Punia, Nitish Rana, Jitesh Sharma, Nathu Singh, Akshay Wakhare, Martin Guptill.last_img read more

Want to work for women empowerment in Haryana: CS topper Tina

first_imgNew Delhi, May 10 (PTI) Citing less number of working women in Haryana, Civil Services exam topper Tina Dabi today said she wants to work in the neighbouring state to contribute in empowerment of fairer sex there. “I always wanted to work in a challenging state. That is why I chose Haryana. We all know the sex ratio of girl and boy child is quiet less and that is why I would like to contribute my efforts for the empowerment of women there,” she said. 22-year-old Tina, who has graduated from Lady Shri Ram College here, topped the 2015 Civil Services exam in her first attempt. “My mother is my role model. She wanted me to study political science. I chose it and got through in the examination. It was one of my main subjects,” she said, crediting her mother, a former Indian Engineering Service (IES) officer, who took voluntary retirement from the job. Tinas father Jaswant is a serving IES officer. “It is the best day of my life,” he said. Tina was born in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. She did her schooling from Carmel Convent School there. Elaborating more on her choice of Haryana as preferred state to work in, she said women should be given more chance to work in administration. “Women empowerment is very important. I have seen how my mother has brought up me. It is because of her guidance and support that I could get top position in the test,” she told PTI here at her home. Tina is the eldest daughter of the family. Her younger sister Ria has passed Class XII this year. “We are very proud of her. She topped in her graduation also,” Ria said. Asked whether she would also like to follow her sisters footstep and join civil services, she said “it is too early to say. But as of now, we all are happy for her (Tina) success.” Tinas mother Himali said she provided all support to her daughter to prepare for the civil services exam. “It is not easy to prepare for this exam. It is very tough. Todays result is all because of her hard efforts,” she said. Her mother was also sporting a badge with the message “My daughter, my hero” on her dress. “My daughter is really my hero. There is No Alternative (TINA) for her,” she quipped. Besides Tina, railway service officer Athar Aamir Ul Shafi Khan from Jammu and Kashmir and Delhi-based Jasmeet Singh Sandhu, an Indian Revenue Service officer, have secured second and third rank respectively.

Xiaomi Redmi Y3 India launch on April 24: 32MP selfie camera, dot drop notch, big battery and more

first_imgXiaomi Redmi Y3 India launch on April 24: 32MP selfie camera, dot drop notch, big battery and moreThe Redmi Y3 will be available on Amazon India after it launches in the country on April 24. The phone will come with a 32-megapixel selfie camera.advertisement Sneha Saha New DelhiApril 16, 2019UPDATED: April 18, 2019 09:33 IST HIGHLIGHTSThe Redmi Y3 will be available on Amazon India from April 24.Redmi Y3 will also feature a fullscreen display with a dot drop notch.Redmi Y3 may come with the same battery setup as the Redmi Note 7 series – 4000mAh. After launching the Redmi Note 7, the Redmi Note 7 Pro and the Redmi Go, Xiaomi India is all set to launch its fourth smartphone of the year. Xiaomi has officially announced that it is going to bring the next Y-series phone in the country on April 24. The company is yet to reveal the name of the upcoming Y series phone — but going by the past records the phone may be called Redmi Y3. This is also what the rumours suggest. Similar to the Redmi Note 7 series launch, it is highly likely that the Redmi Y3 global launch will happen in India on April 24.Ahead of the official launch, Xiaomi has been teasing its upcoming Y-series phone aka Redmi Y3 a lot. The company is trying its best to woo consumers by releasing several video teasers and showing the beautiful selfies the upcoming Y series phone captured. Till date, all the Redmi Y series phones – including the Redmi Y1 and the Redmi Y2 — are about selfie camera. The Redmi Y3 will be no exception. It will also be mostly about good selfies.As teased by the company itself, the key highlight of the Redmi Y3 will be its selfie camera — which apparently will sit on a waterdrop notch or dot drop notch. Xiaomi India has confirmed that the Redmi Y2 successor will come with a 32-megapixel selfie shooter and will be able to click flawless selfies. The company is continuously teasing the capabilities of the 32-megapixel camera via new teaser videos almost every other day. In addition to the selfie camera, the company is also teasing other aspects of the Redmi Y3 like design, drop dot notch, core hardware, and battery. The Redmi Y3 will be available on Amazon India after it launches in the country on April 24. The phone is already listed on the e-commerce site. The landing page also reveals some of the key details of the all-new Y series phones.advertisementLet’s take a quick look at everything we know about the upcoming Redmi Y series phone so far:–32-megapixel selfie camera: This will be the key highlight of the Redmi Y3. Xiaomi has been teasing the Redmi Y3 selfie camera for quite some time now. The company says that the phone will be able to click unbeatable Instagram worthy selfies. The company is teasing the front camera of the upcoming Redmi Y series phone with the hashtag #32MPSuperSelfie. In fact, the company has also come together with Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh and released a teaser video. In the video, Singh claims that the selfie camera of the new Redmi Y series phone clicks flawless selfies. Xiaomi is yet to reveal which sensor the company is planning to use for its selfie camera or whether it will use Pixel binning technology to shoot selfies similar to how the 48-megapixel camera of the Redmi Note 7 Pro works. Xiaomi India says that Redmi Y3 will “stand out from the crowd” and will be capable of clicking “ultra-clear selfie day and night”.–Dot drop notch: Like some of the previously launched Redmi phones this year, the upcoming Y series Redmi phone is also teased to come packed with a waterdrop notch on the top of the display, which Xiaomi calls Dot drop notch. The presence of waterdrop notch means the bezels on the upcoming Redmi Y series will be much slimmer when compared to the predecessor Redmi Y2.–Gradient finish: The landing page of the Redmi Y series phone is already listed on the Amazon website. The page suggests that the Redmi Y series phone may come with gradient finish or aura design, as Xiaomi may like to call it. The Amazon page shows the Nebula Red tone which suggests that the Redmi Y3 may also come in beautiful colours similar to the Redmi Note 7 series.–Redmi Note 7 series-like design: Overall, it seems the Redmi Y3 may look like the Redmi Note 7 or the Redmi Note 7 Pro. This suggests that the Redmi Y3 may come with Gorilla Glass 5 coating on both front and back, gradient finish, premium design, drop dot notch, slim bezels, and Redmi by Xiaomi logo on the back side of the phone.–Big battery: In one of the teasers, Xiaomi Redmi has teased the battery of the Redmi Y series phone. The teaser reveals that the Redmi Y3 can last longer than one can expect. This also means that the Redmi Y3 will sport a much bigger battery compared to the predecessor Redmi Y2, which includes 3080mAh battery. We believe the Redmi Y3 may come with the same battery setup as the Redmi Note 7 series – 4000mAh.advertisement–Snapdragon processor: The landing page of Amazon notes that the Redmi Y series phone will come with Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm. To recollect, the Redmi Y2 comes with Snapdragon 625 processor. Considering the Redmi Y3 is a successor to the Redmi Y2 we expect the phone to be powered by a much powerful processor. How about Xiaomi brings its favourite Snapdragon 636 to Redmi Y3? Or maybe Snapdragon 660 like the Redmi Note 7.–Fingerprint sensor: The Amazon India teaser also reveals that the Redmi Y3 will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that will sit next to the back camera setup.–Dual rear cameras: The Amazon India teaser also reveals that the Redmi Y3 will come with two cameras on the back panel paired with a single LED flash.–The Redmi Y3 is already up with the Notify Me button on Amazon India.

13,000 TEU Boxships to Find New Homes amid US Demand Slump

first_imgzoom Weak US demand is forcing container shipping companies to search for new homes for their 13,000 TEU vessels, according to Alphaliner.Displaced by even larger tonnage on their current services, many such ships were originally earmarked for re-deployment to transpacific Asia – US routes.Meanwhile however, several carriers have decided to downscale their transpacific capacity provision in June.Already in May, the French shipping major CMA CGM had abandoned plans to deploy 17,800 TEU ultra-large container ships (ULCS) on the Asia – USWC route.Numerous 13,000 TEU-class vessels are gradually being phased out of the Far East-Europe trade, where they are displaced by 19,000 TEU newbuildings, Alphaliner said.“Some of the ships have since joined the transpacific trade, while others are successively re-assigned to the North-South trades, as carriers being to explore alternative employment options for such tonnage,” Alphaliner added.June has already seen Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) assign two 12,552 TEU vessels to its standalone Asia South Africa – West Africa ‘Africa Express’ service and the carrier furthermore intends to shift several 13,000 TEU ships to both this ‘Africa Express’ and to the Far East – WCSA ‘Andes Express’ in the coming weeks.last_img read more

Wrong to say outsiders get stepmotherly treatment Nawazuddin

first_imgMumbai: Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui finds it unfair when people say that only star kids get work in the film industry as he believes if one has talent, work will eventually follow. For the longest time, there has been an ongoing nepotism debate in the industry, kick-started by actor Kangana Ranaut, who said star children get preferential treatment in Bollywood. When asked if he feels people from non-film family background find it harder to make it, Nawazuddin told reporters, “The good thing about the industry is that if you have the talent, then sooner or later people see it. Also Read – ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has James Cameron’s fingerprints all over it: Arnold Schwarzenegger “It isn’t that any person walking on the street can say they are not getting work. It takes time. If you have it on you, no one can stop you.” The actor said today there are lots of avenues for people to show their talent, including the digital medium. “We can’t say we are getting step-motherly treatment and no one is giving us work. It isn’t like that. There is a new wave of actors today working in web series and films because they have the talent. If you have the talent, you will get work eventually.” He was speaking at the launch of the book “The Stranger in Me” Tuesday.last_img read more

Adolphus Washington doing good things at new position for Ohio State football

Then-sophomore defensive lineman Adolphus Washington (92) gets up after tackling an opposing player during the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3 at Sun Life Stadium. OSU lost, 40-35.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAll it takes to end a career early is an injury.Even if the injury itself isn’t of a significant nature, the possibility remains that the player who steps in as a replacement can do such a good job that the original starter loses his place forever.For junior defensive lineman Adolphus Washington, that possibility became all too real for the briefest of moments last season. After injuring his groin against San Diego State Sept. 7, Washington watched then-freshman Joey Bosa come in and claim the starting defensive end position, opposite then-sophomore Noah Spence.But a late season switch saw Washington take up a position on the interior of the line, something that could take a career that was once hanging by a thread and turn it into something completely different.Now with Washington “inside for good,” he said he has been improving this offseason with the different style of play on the inside.“I’ve been doing real good with it this spring,” Washington said Thursday. “Especially going up against guys like (redshirt-sophomore offensive lineman) Pat Elflein and (redshirt-junior offensive lineman) Tommy Brown. If I can do it against them, I know I can do it against pretty much anybody.”New defensive line coach Larry Johnson said Washington has the right skill set to be successful as an interior lineman.“You always want a three-tackler, a guy that’s going to get a lot of one-on-ones and have an ability to rush the passer,” Johnson said Thursday. “He’s 285, 290 and that’s big enough to play inside. So you have to take a skilled guy who’s rushed on the edge and play inside and play as a guard position, it’s going to give you a different edge on the inside. That’s what I’m excited about. He’s got great hips, he can rush the passer, so there should be some great things coming from him.”But it’s not just the skill set Washington brings that has Johnson raving, it’s also the drive Washington shows on the practice field.“He’s worked really hard,” Johnson said. “He’s had a really good … spring ball. He really has. We moved him inside because of the pass rush ability, he’s playing the run real nice and then he’s doing a great job for us.”Last season, in limited time, Washington recorded 36 tackles, to go along with four tackles for a loss and two sacks.Even though he played on the interior later in the year after Bosa became established as the defensive end starter, Washington said he was uneasy when practice first started, but that things have improved.“At first I was kind of nervous and scared about it. But now that I got a hold of it, it’s whatever. I am just going to go out there and play,” Washington said.He added that sometimes having to face multiple blockers at once — compared to the one he would face at end more often than not — is what really made him nervous.“The double teams. I used to watch … (senior defensive lineman) Michael Bennett used to tell me about them and he used to be like ‘You just have to get your pads low and fly off the ball,’” Washington said. “So I am like, ‘I can do that’ if that’s all it takes. I can just do that.”Johnson said facing the double teams won’t be a problem for Washington, as long as he pays attention and learns from his coaches.“Talk technique to him. Show him how to fit the double teams, and he’s doing a great job for us so far in spring ball, doing that and as he does it, confidence will come in the run game,” Johnson said. “I’ve been really excited for all these guys, Adolphus has done a really good job for us.”Washington is likely set to have his second chance to start on the interior of the line for the Buckeyes — after starting the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl against Clemson — when OSU opens its season Aug. 30 against Navy.Kickoff is scheduled for noon at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. read more

Golem Arcana is a mobileinfused tabletop board game seeking cash on Kickstarter

first_imgTabletop miniature games can be loads of fun, but there’s a high barrier to entry. You usually have to paint figures by hand. Then there are the rules, which often confuse beginners with esoteric stat modifiers and character skills. Golem Arcana aims to be something different. This mobile-enhanced tabletop board game is looking for funding on Kickstarter to make these games more accessible and attractive to gamers.Golem Arcana comes from the team behind the previous Kickstarter success Shadowrun Returns, an RPG video game. There are four clans in the game, each with four unit models. All the models come pre-painted so they’ll look perfect. The Kickstarter campaign includes some stretch goals that will unlock additional models for the game.To make gameplay more inviting, the designers have created a special stylus with a microdot camera on one end. You touch the camera end of the stylus to the section of the model’s base that indicates the action you want to take. If you’re moving you tap on the square you’re going to. Attacking? Tap on the enemy unit. All this data is sent over Bluetooth 4.0 to a phone or tablet that tells you if moves are valid, and tracks stats and modifiers based on terrain and buffs. The other end of the stylus is also a regular capacitive stylus, which is neat.Golem Arcana has a rich story behind it, and you can learn about the world easily by hitting the info button on your stylus. It can pull up information on any object you scan and have it displayed on the mobile device. This digital approach to tabletop gameplay lets the developers roll out new stories and content very quickly and easily.The game just launched, and has already accumulated over $100,000 (as of this posting). It still has 34 days to reach $500,000. It seems almost certain Harebrained Schemes is going to blow past the goal. If you want in, $55-65 gets you the base game with 6 miniatures, a stylus, dice, and a set of terrain tiles. Higher tiers include more stuff, but you can also buy more items a la carte.last_img read more

28 injured after truck ploughs into New Orleans Mardi Gras parade

first_img A SUSPECTED DRUNK driver ploughed a pickup truck into a Mardi Gras parade Saturday in New Orleans, leaving 28 people injured, including children, officials said.“At this time it appears that it’s a subject who was highly intoxicated, who struck a number of vehicles and then veered off hitting a whole bunch of innocent people,” New Orleans Police Chief Michael Harrison told reporters.Seven of those injured declined to go to the hospital, an official at the press conference said.The age of the victims ranged from an approximately three- to four-year old child who was in stable condition, to people in their 30s or 40s, he added.According to Harrison the vehicle driver is under investigation for drunk driving “and of course hitting all the people who were injured.” Source: Gerald HerbertThe driver ploughed into the crowd just before 1am Sunday as spectators watched the Krewe of Endymion parade, which is part of the city’s famous Mardi Gras celebrations.New Orlean’s “Krewes” are the private organizations that lead parades and throw balls during the city’s Carnival season.“It’s very hard to protect against somebody that’s very intoxicated that runs through a crowd,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu told reporters, adding that barricades had been put in place.“People have to be responsible and they have to be thoughtful about what they do,” he said.Earlier in the day a man was wounded after a gun went off near the Krewe of Tucks parade elsewhere in town. Police believe the weapon was accidentally discharged inside a portable toilet, according to The Times-Picayune newspaper.“In both instances our officers were on the scene within seconds if not minutes,” Landrieu said.- © AFP, 2017Read: Donald Trump to skip White House Correspondents’ Dinner 28 injured after truck ploughs into New Orleans Mardi Gras parade The age of the victims ranged from a four-year old child who was in stable condition, to people in their 30s or 40s.

first_img Mar 12th 2019, 12:06 AM Image: Eamonn Farrell/RollingNews.ie Paschal Donohoe met KBC to ‘reassure’ the bank of support after the Strokestown eviction The bank was criticised for using private security agents to forcibly remove three siblings from their Roscommon home. By Peter Bodkin 30,065 Views Tuesday 12 Mar 2019, 12:05 AM https://jrnl.ie/4534430 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article No Comments Short URL Share1455 Tweet Email2 Image: Eamonn Farrell/RollingNews.ie FINANCE MINISTER PASCHAL Donohoe held a meeting with KBC to “reassure” the bank of the government’s support in the wake of the controversy surrounding the forced eviction of a Roscommon family in December.The mid-January meeting involved the head of the Belgian bank’s local operation, Wim Verbraeken, and its chairman, Luc Popelier.Internal Department of Finance records state the main purpose of the meeting was “to reassure KBC about our support for the bank in light of the recent difficulties it has experienced follow the attempted repossession” of the Strokestown property.The documents, obtained by TheJournal.ie, went on to note that KBC was an “important challenger bank” with an Irish market share of around 8% and more than 1,000 employees here.The meeting followed the forced eviction of the three McGann siblings from their Roscommon farm in December, an incident involving a series of violent scuffles that were captured on video.The case drew national media attention after private security guards employed by KBC were allegedly forced from the property by a group of masked men.  A screengrab of footage from the incident Source: The DemocratSpeaking pointsUnder a list of “suggested speaking points” for Donohoe in advance of the meeting, finance officials said the minister could “welcome the opportunity to discuss concerns that KBC may have” about repossession issues.“We fully accept that repossessions are part of the normal financial services landscape and that it must be possible to enforce security as a final resort when all else has failed,” the document said. The partially redacted records were released after a freedom of information request.In public comments after the eviction, senior government figures were more circumspect in showing support for the bank.Taoiseach Leo Varadkar told the Dáil the facts behind the eviction “seem to be about much more than an elderly farm family being evicted” and there had been years of debt, arrears and tax evasion involved in the case.“Nobody likes to see anyone being evicted in any circumstance. Nobody wants to see it happening, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. However, the High Court does not issue eviction orders lightly,” he said.However in response to Sinn Féin criticism that the eviction was “an ordeal of thuggery inflicted by a group of men acting on behalf of a financial institution while gardaí watched”, Varadkar added that there was a need to regulate private security firms used by banks to carry out evictions. The McGann family later said that the Taoiseach’s comments were “a deliberate attempt to deflect attention from some of the very serious issues relating to our eviction”.Two men have since been charged over the violent confrontations after guards occupying the site were attacked. A security dog had to be put down after suffering serious injuries during the incident, while the guards’ six vehicles were also set alight.The family, who were not involved in the attacks, subsequently returned to the home. One sibling, David McGann, has filed High Court proceedings against KBC claiming that the eviction was unlawful and the security firms allegedly involved had no authority to enter the property.The bank had earlier obtained a possession order against McGann’s brother, Anthony, in relation to a debt of more than €300,000. KBC lodged legal action against him in 2009 and court records show a repossession order was issued in 2013.The incident triggered anti-eviction protests in Strokestown, while three TDs and around a dozen supporters also ‘occupied’ a KBC branch in Dublin. Source: Mattie McGrathIn a statement, a spokesman for the Department of Finance said the discussions that took place at the meeting were confidential, however given its timing “the events in which the bank’s branches and agents came under physical attack were likely to be of particular concern to the bank”.“It would have been completely inappropriate for the department and the minister to ignore the incidents which took place or in any way to condone or appear to condone these incidents,” he added.“It was right and proper that this message should be clearly conveyed to KBC.” Comments are closed due to ongoing legal proceedings.last_img read more
