After months of speculation as to where the final of the 2016 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 tournament will take place, it has been confirmed that Guyana will host the August 7, 2016 showpiece after outbidding Jamaica and two-time hosts Trinidad and Tobago.Guyana’s Education Minister, who has responsibility for Sport, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine confirmed this to Guyana Times on Tuesday evening, but did not elaborate.“Yes, we have the finals,” said Dr Roopnaraine, who explained that he was in a meeting, but promised to provide further details to this publication today.Reports are that the Guyana Government had outdone the Governments of Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica in a three-way bid to host the final.Guyana will also host both semi-finals which will take place at the Providence Stadium as well.It will be the first time that the final will be hosted in Guyana, having been hosted by T&T twice and once by St Kitts/Nevis.While the games will not be played in the month of May, they are expected to be used as part of the activities to celebrate the country’s 50th Independence Anniversary which will climax on May 26, the date Guyana gained independence from Britain.CPL 2016 is slated for June-July, and apart from the on-field action, the country’s economy is set to receive a massive boost, given the business and tourism potential that CPL has been able to realise in three short years.Guyana Amazon Warriors have been among the success stories of CPL, having made it to the first two finals, narrowly losing to Jamaica Tallawahs in 2013 and suffering a controversial defeat to Barbados a year later.In 2015, Guyana Amazon Warriors made it to the semi-finals, losing out to eventual champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel.The CPL since its creation in 2013 has created thousands of jobs across the Caribbean and generated millions of US dollars for the Region’s economy.The tournament attracts some of the biggest names in T20 cricket around the world.
SOCU charges…civil proceedings for reputational damage to follow – AttorneyThe Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts were packed to capacity on Tuesday afternoon with several former top Government officials, when former Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh and former NICIL’s Privatisation Unit Head, Winston Brassington appeared to answer to three charges of misconduct in public office.Former Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh and former Head of NICIL’s Privatisation Unit, Winston BrassingtonBoth men appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan who granted them $2 million bail on each of the three joint charges, despite the defence attorney had sought a reduction for these amounts to $1 million for all three charges for each person.The two former Government officials were charged for allegedly selling several plots of land on the East Coast of Demerara to National Hardware Guyana Ltd for over $598 million; Scady Business Corporation at a cost of $150 million, and to Multi-cinemas Guyana Inc at a cost of $185 million. The Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) had filed the charges against the two former Government officials early last month.During Tuesday’s hearing, lead attorney for the defendants, Anil Nandlall said both men are no flight risk and they have no criminal record, nor were they served with a summons to attend court. He requested that the former Government officials be released on their own recognizance.Some of their supporters outside the Georgetown Magistrates’ CourtsHowever, although Nandlall was backed by a large team of lawyers, which included Mark Waldron, Ronald Burch-Smith, Stanley Moore, Priya Manickchand, Sase Gunraj, Euclin Gomes, and Marcia Nadir-Sharma, Special Prosecutor in the case Trenton Lake argued that the accused could stand bail. He told the court that both defendants are subject in other investigations being conducted by the SOCU.In his defence, Nandlall said Lake’s argument that his clients could acquire their bails is not grounds to make the offence bailable. He said too that there is no fundamental evidence to support the arguments that the defendants will not appear in court to stand trial. On that basis, Nandlall said considerations should be given to their track record and status.Further, Nandlall requested that the charges to be read summarily instead of indictably. However, Lake objected explaining that he is not positioned to disclose the files on the charges. The Prosecutor told the court that because additional investigations are ongoing, it would be untimely to do so.But the lead attorney for the defendants argued strongly that no effort was ever made to serve Singh and Brassington with the summons. While explaining that his clients work overseas, Nandlall noted that both men voluntarily appeared in court and there was no reason why they would not attend court again.Meanwhile, Senior Council Stanley Moore, who is representing Brassington, said his client voluntarily returned to Guyana to answer to the charges so as to allow the course of justice to take place. He said both men came back so that they can stand trial, so that their innocence could be vindicated in a court of law, and it is an indication that they have no intentions of absconding.During his arguments, Nandlall, a former senior Government Minister himself, told the court that the charges are an expression of political victimisation against his clients and it is unfortunate that the administration of justice has to be contaminated in the manner that it has.Following the court proceedings, both men were escorted by Police in handcuffs and placed in the prisoner’s dock where they waited for a few minutes before being released. Nandlall described the act of handcuffing Singh and Brassington as dehumanising and one that sought to humiliate these two former senior Government officials, who served the country with distinction.Nandlall said once the current charges are over, there will be a barrage of civil proceedings that will be fielded for reputational damage caused to the duo. The attorney noted that persons are going to be charged personally for their involvement in the matter, and not the State alone.Singh and Brassington are due to return to court on June 5.

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – Heathcliff the cat somehow hitched a nearly 800-mile ride from New Jersey to Georgia – most likely on a moving van, authorities said. The orange and white shorthair was reported missing Oct. 24 from Sicklerville, N.J. The animal was identified Nov. 9 at an animal shelter in Lawrenceville where a resident took the cat after trapping him. D. Mosier, an animal control officer, scanned Heathcliff for a microchip, as she does with all animals that show up at the Gwinnett Animal Welfare and Enforcement Center. The microchip led to information that the kitty was reported missing. A volunteer rescue group shuttled the cat back to its owner Wednesday. Last week, a Lawrenceville woman provided what might be the answer to how the cat ended up in the Atlanta suburb. The woman called Mosier and told her she helped her son move out of a New Jersey apartment shortly before the cat turned up in Georgia.

The last week of the league games went right down to the wire before we learned which four teams would make the playoffs and which two teams would battle it out in the wooden spoon game.Game 1: Thunder 42 – Clippers 53 Conor Dorrian (Thunder) got off the mark early in this one and punished the Clippers inside through his post play. That was before Steve Cannon began to heat up hitting three consecutive three-pointers for the Clippers. Paul Murray was in fine form also as he worked extremely hard for his Clippers to give them a 5-point halftime lead. Thunder’s Padhraic Coll, who has played well during the Summerleague despite his teams record, notched scores on the break, but these were quickly cancelled out by Necip Gercek. Moe Ismail rallied the Clippers to a win in the last few minutes. Top Scorers: (Thunder) Conor Dorrian 18pts and (Clippers) Steve Cannon 16pts.Game 2: Celtics 48 – Magic 52This was a close game from start to finish, with multiple lead changes. Pete Rose shot the ball good in the first half for the Celtics, while Edvinas Dapsys continued slashing to the basket and converting in traffic for Magic. Daniel McArdle grabbed a few steals, which resulted into easy lay-ups, and Erik Dragunas attacked the basket for scores to give Magic a one-point lead towards the end. Paul McHugh responded with a number of drives of his own to restore the lead for Celtics 48-46 with less than a minute to go. Mark Cannon calmly knocked down two free throws to tie and then Erik Dragunas stole the ball and found Cannon under the basket for a lay-up to seal the game for the Magic. Top Scorers: (Celtics) Paul Mc Hugh 24pts and (Magic) Mark Cannon 15pts. Game 3: Lakers 52 – Bulls 50With Lakers needing a win to stay in the playoff race, they had to dig deep all the way until the buzzer in this one. Big Ger Murray was huge in the opening half for the Bulls scoring all 12 of his points in it, however he barely touched the ball in the second half, which ultimately hurt their chances of progressing to the playoffs. John Cronin hit a couple of midrange jump shots for the Lakers, while Kieran O’Neill attacked the rim time and time again with success. Troy Morris matched him with drives of his own for the Bulls, while Pauric Carr began to come into the game in the second half. Bulls scored on a lay-up with 15 seconds to go to put them up one point. Lakers came down the court and O’Neill hit a three to send the Lakers up by two points and they held on to win the game in an exciting finish. Top Scorers: (Lakers) Kieran O Neill 26pts and (Bulls) Pauric Carr 17pts.Game 4: Celtics 62 – Bulls 60The winner of this game would go to the semi-finals, while the loser would be out of contention and into the spooner game. Celtics only had four so the game would be played 4v4, which meant there was a lot more space on the court for drives, and one person in particular took advantage of this to the maximum with an outstanding individual performance from Paul McHugh who netted a Summerleague record 49points for the Celtics. He scored drive after drive in the opening half as the Bulls switched defenders on him but to no avail. Conor McGoohan and Troy Morris (Bulls) hit numerous mid ranger shots between tem to keep this close throughout. Celtics responded with Manus Crampsey and Renatas Jocys getting on the scoreboard. James Potts was strong on the defensive end for Celtics. Pauric Carr had a number of sweet drives to the basket, while Ger Murray came into the game more as he got the ball in a position that could hurt their opponents. The game went score for score in the final minutes and McHugh eventually got the score that would seal their place in the playoffs, in yet another nail biting Summerleague game that went down to the end. Top Scorers: (Celtics) Paul McHugh 49pts and (Bulls) Pauric Carr 22pts.Game 5: Lakers51 – Thunder 46Lakers got another much needed win to secure their playoff spot and raced out to an early lead 12-0 before Billy Banda entered the game and used his strength and experience to hurt the Lakers inside. The comeback was on for the Thunder and they were beginning to rattle the Lakers. However they responded through Eduardas Diktonis and Padraig Barrett working well together inside. Connor Reid had a big first half for the Thunder to reduce the gap to five points. The second half was close, with Mike Foy drawing a nice charge, before Billy Banda dominated the post at the other end. Kieran O Neill showed stepped up with a number of big blocks and plays for his Lakers team to help them holds on for the win and a playoff spot. Top Scorers: (Lakers) Kieran O Neill 15pts and (Thunder) Billy Banda 25pts.Game 6: Magic 62 – Clippers 48 This game did not really mean too much as both teams had qualified for the playoffs, it just determined the seeding, with the winner taking 1st place. Magic started strong and led from start to finish in this one. Mark Cannon had a few nice passes as he found his team-mates on their cuts to the basket for easy scores. The Clippers Paul Murray scored well inside for his team to keep them close. Zak Balogun had a big game for the Magic as he controlled everything inside, and scored at will. Steve Cannon tried hard to lift the Clippers and proved to be a constant scoring threat all game, along with Rory O Brien who played good defence throughout, but Magic held on through Joseph King and Edvinas Dapsys as they won the game and topped the league standings. Top Scorers: (Magic) Zak Balogun 26pts and (Clippers) Steve Cannon 24pts.The semi final match ups will see the 1st place team (Magic) against the 4th placed (Celtics), while the 2nd placed (Clippers) take on the 3rd placed (Lakers). The Bulls and Thunder will square off in the wooden spoon game.All our information (stats, fixtures, results and more) can be viewed online at http://www.edwinfoley.ie/Letterkenny-Summer-League-2012BASKETBALL: LETTERKENNY SUMMER LEAGUE was last modified: July 4th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:basketballLetterkenny Summer Legue
