“Yes, we have crime,” he said, but pointed out that there was a difference between “societal crime and the ability to host a big event”. Proven event hosting track record Briefing a parliamentary committee in Cape Town this week, OC chief executive Danny Jordaan said the international media had raised concerns about South Africa’s ability to host a secure tournament, but said that he was never worried. Pointing to this year’s Confederations Cup and British and Irish Lions rugby tour, which passed without serious incidents, Jordaan reiterated that the level of crime in South Africa would not deter visitors or mar the first soccer World Cup to be held in Africa. The government has invested about R1.3-billion in World Cup security. There will be 41 000 police officers dedicated to securing the tournament, with 700 police officers around the stadiums for each match. The South African Police Service in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies, like the National Joint Operations and intelligence structures as well as the South African army will be used during the event. He said South African security forces had experience of policing major events by assisting at the 2006 World Cup in Germany and last year’s Beijing Olympics. Jordaan said South Africa had regularly proved itself capable of hosting international showpieces, starting with the Rugby World Cup in 1995, just a year after the country’s first democratic elections. “The Rugby World Cup, the Cricket World Cup, the Athletics World Cup and now the football World Cup,” he mentioned. “In golf too: the Presidents Cup and other major events. You cannot mention more than 10 countries in the world with that kind of event profile.” With just over 200 days to go till the 2010 Fifa World Cup™, the first on African soil, the 2010 Organising Committee (OC) is assuring tournament supporters and the media that South Africa is ready to put on a premier tournament and protect every visitor “without a doubt”. 11 November 2009 Source: BuaNews

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. – A man who admitted he killed three people in southern Alberta by stabbing them hundreds of times has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance at parole for 20 years.Austin Vielle pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Monday on what was supposed to be the first day of his first-degree murder trial in Lethbridge, Alta.Court heard five knives and a meat cleaver were found at the townhouse in April 2015.An agreed statement of facts said the victims were stabbed a total of 244 times.In handing down the sentence, Justice Rodney Jerke said those facts tell a “difficult, brutal and tragic story.”The judge also told Vielle, who is 24, that his “frenzy of violence” will leave a permanent mark on him.“Your own life has been forever changed,” Jerke told Vielle Tuesday.Vielle was charged after Kyle Devine, 27, Clarissa English, 24, and her 18-year-old brother Dakota were found dead in the townhouse.Laurie English, mother of Clarissa and Dakota English, spoke directly to Vielle as she gave her victim impact statement on Monday.“You have brought complete tragedy to our lives,” she said. “I now know what hate means. I feel no compassion for you at all. You’ve destroyed more than half of my heart and my soul.”Vielle declined to address the court or the families of his victims on Monday, but said in a statement read by his lawyer that he was sorry.“I don’t remember what happened. I’m sorry for bringing this pain on you and your family,” he said.“They were my friends. I wish this didn’t happen. I hope in the future there can be some kind of reconciliation but I know this will be very difficult.”The statement of facts said all three victims were heavily intoxicated at the time.It said Dakota English was stabbed 57 times, Devine had 84 cuts and stab wounds and Clarissa English was stabbed 103 times. Many of the wounds were to the faces, necks and upper bodies of all three.Court heard Vielle was intoxicated when he committed the murders.He was arrested nearly two weeks after the bodies were found. He was described as a friend to all three.Police said at the time that they believed Vielle had spent time with them in the hours prior to their deaths.(Lethbridge News Now, The Canadian Press)
