PCB wants Windies for day-night Test

first_imgLAHORE, Pakistan (CMC):Pakistan’s cricket authorities want West Indies to play a day-night Test during their tour in October as they prepare for their historic pink-ball Test against Australia in December.West Indies are set to play two Tests, five one-day internationals, and two Twenty20 Internationals during the series set for the United Arab Emirates, and media reports here say the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sent a proposal to the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to play one of the Tests under lights.Former Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq, an adviser to the PCB’s cricket committee, said it was important that the national team had practised with the pink ball before taking on Australia.”If you don’t have match practice, it will become difficult to play at Test level. It was one of the things discussed in the cricket committee’s previous meeting,” said Misbah.”The bowlers are at (an) advantage in the evening session, and it becomes very difficult for batsmen under lights. That is one reason the cricketers from other countries are also reluctant to play Tests under lights.”He added: “One more reason is the lack of match practice with the pink ball. The players have hardly played any cricket under these conditions at the domestic levels. They need more match practice before playing it at international level.”Even if the proposal is rejected by the WICB, the PCB plans to stage matches under lights during the first-class competition in order to prepare players.International games have not been played in Pakistan in over seven years because of the volatile security situation here.Earlier this month, the WICB rejected a proposal from the PCB to play limited-overs matches during the upcoming series on Pakistan soil.last_img read more

Police investigating social media death threats against former President, PPP/C members

first_imgTameshwar Beekham, a self-professed A Partnership for National Unity /Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) supporter, is currently under investigation by the Guyana Police Force (GPF) following reports of death threats on social media against the life of former President and Leader of the Opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo and other parliamentarians of the People’s Progressive Party /Civic (PPP/C).One of Beekham’s posts on FacebookBeekham took to his Facebook page and ranted over the idealisation of the APNU/AFC Government’s accomplishments and vision of former President LFS Burnham, and openly stated his intentions to target Freedom House and “murder” Jagdeo and the PPP/C.“I will one day with my gang that I am equipping and training, will walk into Freedom House and murder Bharrat Jagdeo and the PPPC top brass,” Beekham wrote on his Facebook page. As a result, the PPP/C lodged a formal complaint about the matter with the GPF.“Mr Tameshwar Beekham has posted death threats and physical violence against former Presidents Bharrat Jagdeo and Donald Ramotar, PPP General Secretary Clement Rohee and former Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Luncheon and others at Freedom House, headquarters of the PPP,” the Party said in a release after it had made the report.The report was confirmed by Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum, who indicated to the media that investigations were ongoing into the matter.Beekham also confirmed that he had been contacted by the Police, but continued his rant, saying he was not afraid of jail.Even after confirming his encounter with law enforcement, the Berbice resident continued to issue threats against  former President Jagdeo.Beekham again took to his Facebook page to inform his supporters of the efforts being made by the GPF to locate him in relation to the threats.“The Police have issued order for my arrest, they have made a few raid and searches for me last night; they want me in relation to threats I made to kill Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, this will be my last post as I am preparing to turn in myself 10 o’clock this morning Sunday 5 June 2016, at the Springlands Police Station,” his post read.He continued to issue more threats even as he was wanted by the Police.“I AM SAYING IT AGAIN I WILL MURDER BHARRAT JAGDEO AND THE PPPC, I TAMESHWAR BEEKHAM AND MY TEAM WILL MURDER BHARRAT JAGDEO AND THE PPPC JAIL OR FREE!!!!!!!!” his post continued.When Guyana Times made contact with Commander of B (Berbice) Division, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam, he related that  Police have undertaken several searches for Beekham, but came up empty-handed.Just recently, Police detained a 52-year-old woman, who was believed to have posted racially-inciting social media comments about Afro-Guyanese, and what appeared to be a threat to President David Granger.The woman has since been placed before the courts on a charge of attempting to excite hostility on the grounds of race contrary to Section 2 (1) (C) of the Racial Hostility Act, Chapter 23:01 of the Criminal Offences Act. Her Facebook post stated that “Granger want a bullet in head…I am out of a job now because of them.”last_img read more

MINISTER TO HEAR DESPERATE PLIGHT OF SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS IN DONEGAL

first_imgDozens of small business owners from Letterkenny and across Co Donegal are to be given the chance to explain their difficulties to Minister of State Brian Hayes tomorrow.The Minister for Public Service reform is inviting business owners to meet with him when he visits Browne Printers in the Cathedral Town for a special event.The aim of the event is so the Minister can hear how such businesses have had to adapt and review in the current economic climate. Browne Printers is a small family business employing 14 people.They have been in business for just over 21years supplying, Print, Design, Signage and Office Supplies for customers nationwide.Like all small businesses currently they are working hard to market their business to ensure secure employment for their staff and for the future of the business.Letterkenny Chamber President John Watson said “The Ministers area of responsibility is of particular relevance to many of our members. “This event is an opportunity for us to tell the Minister of State directly about the issues that are affecting us, to help him understand what it is like to be running a business in the current climate and to hear from him what measures the government are implementing to support the small business sector.”In Donegal 95% of companies employ less than 10 employees so any measures that can support their future stability and that of all employers and self employed people might help in giving them the confidence to move forward.“There are some key issues in terms of regulation, bureaucracy, finance and procurement that are putting pressure on small businesses and we hope to use this meeting as an opportunity to voice these concerns directly,” added Mr Watson.The meeting will take place on Tuesday 29th May at 3pm in Browne Printers, Port Road, Letterkenny.Places will be limited so preference will be given to Letterkenny Chamber members.

EXCLUSIVE: VICTORY CLOSE IN BID TO SCRAP VRT

first_imgDONEGALDAILY.COM EXCLUSIVE: A human rights campaigner is just a few days away from winning a case in Europe that could see eventually see Vehicle Registration Tax on vehicles scrapped.Ryan Stewart, from Inishowen, will fly to Brussels on November 21st to fight for the rights of motorists who have had cars seized by the Revenue.Another huge step forward was taken this week when the European Commission (statement in full at the end of this article) warned Ireland that it cannot slap VRT at the full rate on leased, hired or Higher Purchase vehicles used by cross-Border workers. It means anyone who is apprehended by Revenue and Gardai on this rule from now on would win any appeal in the court as European law overrides Irish laws. Europe has told the Government to change its rules immediately.The ruling means drivers would pay a proportion of the tax based on how often it was used in the Republic – that could be as little as 10% of the current rateMr Stewart told donegaldaily.com the latest ruling was another step forward – and more will follow.He told us: “I’m in Brussels on the 21st November to argue another few cases, but the Commission is listening so far, and the plan is working.“This is the first major step towards getting rid of this grossly unfair tax, and my intention is to dismantle this tax piece-by -piece, so that ultimately the tax is unworkable, and will have to be abolished.“There are more cases in the pipeline. It’s disappointing however, that we have to lead the government to the European Commission to make them listen to important issues, not just for Donegal, but people around the country as a whole.“The arguments I have put forward are fair and reasonable, and this latest finding will show that the Commission does agree that the VRT regime operated in the state is not only flawed, but despite what successive governments have said, is actually in breach of treaties of the European Union.”If Mr Stewart succeeds in his new cases, it will see VRT scrapped on all vehicles – giving a welcome boost to the motor trade.BELOW IS THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION STATEMENT IN FULL:The European Commission has formally requested Ireland and Spain to change the way in which they tax leased or rented vehicles from another Member State, as well as company cars in the case of Spain, so as to ensure their rules comply with EU legislation.According to EU rules, a Member State can only levy a registration tax on a leased or rented vehicle from another Member State in proportion to the use in its own territory. This means that a Member State may only levy a full registration tax on a leased or rented vehicle from another Member State if it is used or intended to be used on a permanent basis.Similarly, a vehicle that is registered by a company in one Member State and used by ąn employee resident in another Member State cannot be taxed unless the vehicle is used on a permanent basis in the resident’s country. A Member State can only require registration of the vehicle and levy a registration tax if it is proportionate to the duration of the vehicle’s use on its territory.Under Irish law, an Irish resident who rents or leases a vehicle in another Member State is obliged to pay the full amount of the registration tax. An exemption or refund is therefore not possible if a car is used in Ireland only for a short period. This discriminatory tax treatment is contrary to EU rules. Leasing or rental companies in other Member States may face additional taxation when offering their services to Irish residents.Spain also levies the full amount of registration tax on a leased or rented vehicle by a Spanish resident in another Member State (unless the leasing period is shorter than three months in any twelve months). This is in breach of EU rules which provide that the registration tax can only be levied in proportion to the duration of the use of the leased car.Finally, under Spanish law, the registration tax on a car can be levied in full if an employee who works for a company established in another Member State uses a car in Spain and is resident in Spain.These provisions are contrary to EU rules on free movement of workers and on freedom of establishment, fundamental principles of the EU’s Single Market.In the absence of compliance with EU law within two months, the Commission may refer Ireland and/or Spain to the EU’s Court of Justice.BackgroundA Member State may levy a registration tax on a leased or rented vehicle from another Member State when it is used or intended to be used on a permanent basis.The Court of Justice has however concluded that such a tax is contrary to EU law if it is not proportionate to the duration of the registration of the means of transport in the State where it is used. Consequently, the Court has ruled that to oblige a natural person to pay the full amount of tax for a vehicle rented or leased in another Member State is contrary to EU rules (Articles 56 to 62 of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union) when the duration of the use in that territory is not taken into account.Moreover, the Court has ruled that it is contrary to EU law to deprive the person in question of a right to an exemption or a refund, in case the vehicle is not intended to be used on a permanent basis.The Court of Justices has also adopted a number of rulings establishing that registration tax should be proportionate the duration of use on a given territory for company cars.EXCLUSIVE: VICTORY CLOSE IN BID TO SCRAP VRT was last modified: November 10th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:anti-vrt campaignerRyan StewartVEHICLE REGISTRATION TAXVICTORY IN EUROPEAN COMMISSIONlast_img read more
