A copy of the warrant issued by Judge Jennifer Chavez-Marcos of Regional Trial Court Branch 51 in Carmen, Bohol showed that Emmylou Cañesares is one of the 14 leaders of the NPA’s Komiteng Rehiyonal- Negros/Cebu/Bohol/Siquijor accused of murder.The court did not set bail for Cañesares for the criminal case. Government security forces seized from the suspects a .45-caliber pistol, .38-caliber revolver loaded with five rounds of ammunition, four MK2 fragmentation hand grenades, P119,354 cash, and other several other items such as mobile phones. Cañares was arrested with George Buga-ay, 42, a former squad leader and finance logistics officer of the Regional Strike Forces of the Kilusang Rehiyon-Negros (KR-N), now assigned at the KR-N Regional Communication (RCOM), along with Relyn Morino, 22, and Raffy Patajo, 21. BACOLOD City – One of the four officials of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) arrested in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental recently has a pending arrest warrant for murder. “The warrant has yet to be served because her current arrest was due to different circumstances. This disproves the NPA’s claim that she is not an insurgent,” he added. The 38-year-old Cañesares, who was identified by the Philippine Army’s (PA) 15th Infantry Battalion as “Emmylo Cañares,” was arrested with three other suspected rebels in Barangay Magballo on July 10. The four suspects, who are detained at the Kabankalan City Police Station, have been tagged by the police as CPP-NPA terrorist (CNT) high-value individuals.Both Cañares and Morino have been charged for violation of Republic Act 10591, or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act and RA 9516, or the Illegal Possession of Explosives while Buga-ay for RA 10591 and Patajo for RA 9516. (With a report from PNA/PN) Major Cenon Pancito III, chief of the PA’s 3rd Infantry Division’s Public Affairs Office, said on Wednesday the CPP-NPA should get a good lawyer to represent the four considering that one of them is facing a murder case.last_img read more

Kerr set for another round of rotation

first_img“I definitely will and I don’t think I have much of a choice. Look we have a huge game against Esperance on the 17th and we have a very good chance of making it. I would want to have a strong squad to get a good result. Also, this game against Nzoia will be a chance to the other players to show they deserve to be in that travelling team,” Kerr said.Gor Mahia’s Wesley Onguso takes a cross.

Nzoia is a tough team and this will not be an easy walk for us,” the tactician offered.-Facing former side-Nzoia United players celebrating.PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluThree ex-Nzoia Sugar players will potentially line up against their former employers.Despite joining Gor from the sugar millers at the beginning of last season, this will be the first time that defender Joachim Oluoch will have a chance of facing his ex-team.Also lining up against the sugar belt side for the first time is midfielder Lawrence Juma who left the team at the end of last season.

That is how we should play week in week out and the players know what I want and what I demand for them.

Iran Women to Attend Football Match Freely for First Time in Decades

first_imgTehran: Thousands of Iranian women fans are to attend a football match freely Thursday for the first time in decades, after FIFA threatened to suspend the country over its controversial male-only policy.The Islamic republic has barred female spectators from football and other stadiums for around 40 years, with clerics arguing they must be shielded from the masculine atmosphere and sight of semi-clad men. World football’s governing body FIFA ordered Iran last month to allow women access to stadiums without restriction and in numbers determined by demand for tickets.The directive came after a fan dubbed “Blue Girl” died after setting herself on fire in fear of being jailed for dressing up as a boy to attend a match.Women were quick to get their hands on tickets to attend Iran’s 2022 World Cup qualifier against Cambodia at Tehran’s Azadi Stadium on Thursday.The first batch sold out in less than an hour, and additional seats were also snapped up in short order, state media said.The sports ministry said the 100,000-capacity stadium — whose name means “Freedom” in Farsi — was ready to host even more women.One of the 3,500 women to have secured a ticket was Raha Poorbakhsh, a football journalist.”I still can’t believe this is going to happen because after all these years of working in this field, watching everything on television, now I can experience everything in person,” she told AFP.’BLUE GIRL’But Poorbakhsh said she was aware of many other women without tickets and some were expected to travel from as far away as Ahvaz in southern Iran in the hope of still getting one.There have been rare occasions in recent years when Iranian women have been allowed to watch matches, but this time they were free to buy their own tickets, albeit a set number.Those lucky enough to attend will be segregated from men and watched over by 150 female police officers.People on the streets of Tehran said they supported the decision to allow women into stadiums.”I would like there to be freedom for women, like men, to go freely and even sit side by side without any restrictions, like other countries,” said a woman who gave her name only as Hasti.Nader Fathi, who runs a clothing business, said the presence of women could improve the atmosphere in stadiums.But he said “they will regret it” if they are exposed to “really bad swear words” and “bad behaviour”.The bumpy road Iranian women have travelled in order to gain free access to stadiums has not been without tragedy.Sahar Khodayari died last month after setting herself ablaze outside a court in fear of being jailed for attending a match.Dubbed “blue girl” because of the colours of the club she supported — Tehran giants Esteghlal FC — she had reportedly been detained last year when trying to enter a stadium dressed as a boy.Her death sparked an outcry, with many calling for Iran to be banned and matches boycotted.The judiciary dismissed reports she had been told she would be jailed, and Khodayari’s father said she did not “sacrifice” herself for any cause.SHADOW OF FIFAAhead of Qatar 2022, FIFA has pressed Iran to allow women to attend qualifiers. But Iran denied its decision to allow women into Thursday’s match was a result of “foreign pressure”.”The presence of #women in stadiums is due to the internal social demands and government’s support of those demands,” government spokesman Ali Rabiei tweeted.The ban on women in stadiums is not written into law or regulations, but it has been strictly enforced.Since the 1979 Islamic revolution, women have only had rare access to stadiums in Iran.About 20 Irish women attended a World Cup qualifier in 2001, and four years later a few dozen Iranian women watched the national team take on Bahrain.In October, as many as 100 “handpicked” Iranian women watched a friendly against Bolivia.The day after, the prosecutor general warned there would be no repeat, saying it would “lead to sin”.Then in November, a select group of about 850 women attended a match between Esteghlal’s Tehran rivals, Persepolis FC, and Japan’s Kashima Antlers.The issue continues to be deeply divisive in Iran.Reformists have welcomed the latest move, but conservatives have come out strongly against it.The Donya-e-Eqtesad financial newspaper called it “a step to weaken a taboo and also free Iran’s football of the looming shadow of FIFA’s punishment”.But the ultra-conservative Kayhan daily said women were more concerned about economic issues. blue girlFIFAiranmatch First Published: October 9, 2019, 7:23 PM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.
