Nineteen Pakistani peacekeepers serving with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) have been honored by the head of UNMIL, Madam Karin Landgren.The Pakistanis were honored for their immense contributions to the realization of peace and many other services rendered the people of Liberia.Madam Landgren is the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General in Liberia.The 19 members of the Pakistani peacekeeping contingent were honored over the weekend at their base near Hotel Africa in recognition of their outstanding work in Liberia.Madam Landgren said, “I would like to commend the Pakistani Contingent Commander Brig Gen.Tahir Mahmood Wafai, for his leadership that has enabled his officers to give their best to the cause of peace and stability in Liberia. I also express my deepest gratitude to our Pakistani peacekeepers for your contribution to peace and stability in Liberia over the past 10 years.”The honoring program also marked the departure of the PAKBATT-19 contingent, after serving diligently in Maryland, Grand Gedeh and River Gee Counties.Madam Landgren made special mention of seven female health practitioners (two medical doctors and 5 nursing officers) serving with the Pakistani Medical Team in Harper.“You have played a vital role in treating local patients, especially women; and I look forward to seeing more women with the Pakistani contingent, in all aspects of peacekeeping,” Madam Landgren added.The SRSG also paid tribute to her colleagues that lost their lives while serving the United Nations Mission in Liberia.“I wish to pay tribute to our colleague from Pakbatt-19, Maj. Kamran Khalil, who passed away last August while serving the United Nations Mission in Liberia; may his soul rest in peace. I would also like to pay my respects to all the 21 Pakistani soldiers who have lost their lives while in service in Liberia. We will remember them.”In response the Pakistanis Contingent Commander, Brig Gen.Tahir Mahmood Wafai, thanked Madam Landgren and the Government of Liberia for their cooperation.He said it was the objective of Pakistanis to stand up for peace in the world.He said the Pakistanis’ work with the Liberian Government allows citizens to live peacefully and maintain cordial and friendly relations with neighbors and the world at large.He promised that his country would continue to work with the Government of Liberia in restoring peace and stability to Liberia.When the Daily Observer interviewed Hira Khan, the Pakistani Director General for Medical Services, she said her contingents’ being in Liberia has been rewarding to them and the people of Liberia.“I feel good being in Liberia and working for the people of this wonderful nation. I have found them to be loving people who are willing to learn from us and we have learned from them as well. Liberia is a country blessed with vast natural resources and resilient citizens; these facts are proof that Liberia will eventually become great,” she asserted.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Liberia will today discharge the only confirmed Ebola case remaining in the country, according to the Incident Management System (IMS) boss and Assistant Minister for Preventive Service, Tolbert Nyenswah.Making the disclosure yesterday at the Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism on Capitol Hill in Monrovia, Minister Nyenswah explained that with the current status of the fight against the Ebola virus in the country, Liberia is close to reaching zero Ebola case, but “we need to be vigilant in our fight against the virus throughout the country.” “Liberia has clearly passed 12 days without any new confirmed Ebola case. The only patient remaining in an ETU will be discharged from the Chinese ETU as a special event. “We will be waiting for the remaining 30 days to be announced by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an Ebola free nation,” Minister Nyenswah said.“Liberia’s border points remain of great concern to everyone due to the common border crossings at unauthorized points and it is important to caution residents near these places to focus on maintaining safety measures at all points,” he said. The Minister said, “Cape Mount passes 48 days of no new case, Margibi 16 days Montserrado 12 days and Lofa of over 160 days which indicates that Liberia is reaching zero Ebola case.”Liberia, through the IMS, is currently in search of 201 contacts across the country, including border points, said Nyenswah and called on the public to continue observing preventive measures to avoid further spread of the disease. Mr. Nyenswah stressed that the IMS is approaching phase three of the fight against the virus and will remain forceful in ensuring that Liberia completes the required 42 days without any new case of Ebola.“Phase three is meant to gain confidence in the health sector of Liberia and gaining the confidence of the international community in Liberia leading to airlines resuming flights to Liberia,” added the Minister. He said the IMS will be involved in quality surveillance, strengthening cross border elements including air, sea and ground points and expanding the testing of dead bodies and other illnesses related to Ebola. Despite the latest update from Minister Nyenswah on Liberia’s progress in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus disease and considering the neighboring countries’ Ebola status, many Liberians are wondering if the country could be declared Ebola free in 30 days.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Regional Executive Officer (REO) of Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo), Carl Parker, is expected to be removed from the position after he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Thursday, slapped with a sexual assault charge.Carl ParkerIt is alleged that Parker, 53, of Cenotaph Boulevard, Lethem, Region Nine, had sexually assaulted a young lady on June 13, 2016 at Yupukari, Central Rupununi, during a village outreach he had hosted. The REO pleaded not guilty.He appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman, who read the charge in-camera before granting him bail in the sum of $200,000. Following the arraignment hearing, Parker left the courtroom in smiles as media operatives flocked around to get his photograph. He is expected to return to court on February 16.Speaking with reporters outside the courtroom, Parker’s lawyer, Attorney-at-Law Jerome Khan sought to poke holes in the allegation made against his client, questioning the fact that the incident was only reported in December of 2016 and not when it had reportedly occurred in June.The Defence Attorney also pointed out that following this alleged assault, the Virtual Complainant maintained a friendly relationship with Parker, and even visited his home on many occasions.Khan had told media operatives previously that the accused was a victim and his situation was a “perfect political storm”, intended to remove Parker from his position.He noted that there were rumours circulating that Parker was switching his support from the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change Administration to the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) after he followed the procurement act and refused to award contracts to APNU/AFC supporters in Region Nine.On the other hand, Communities Minister Ronald Bulkan on Thursday confirmed that Parker would be removed from his position as the REO of Region Nine with immediate effect as a result of the charge.At a press conference last Friday, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo accused Government of failing to discipline Parker against whom several similar allegations have been made.“This Government has serious problems with professionals, particularly young professionals and particularly women. So in (Region Nine, an education official) complained about the (alleged) predatory behaviour of the (official). And it was swept under the carpet,” Jagdeo had stated.He continued, “Then the (municipal official) complained that she was sexually molested by the same person. It was reported to everyone, including the Minister. The President is aware of it. They try to sweep it under the carpet again.”At least two arms of the PPP have since come out in solidarity with the alleged victim. These groups – the Women’s Progressive Organisation and Progressive Youth Organisation of Region Nine, expressed admiration for the boldness of the Virtual Complainant in coming forward.Meanwhile, the Guyana Empowered Peoples Action Network (GEPAN) had come out condemning this recent attack for which the REO was charged. In a missive last month, GEPAN said it had been solicited to petition on behalf of the Virtual Complainant, as a civil actor.According to GEPAN, the victim suffered the assault while carrying out her official duties.The advocacy group alleged that it was during a work trip, when she was forced to share a room with the suspect, that she was physically assaulted. GEPAN added that the victim has suffered “psychological and emotional abuse and break down” owing to the incident.The group went on to reveal that the official has been forced to compromise her career and her home life has suffered.
“Because we are a smaller country, he gets less attention than he deserves,” Lovren said.Modric was not the only one to excel for Croatia in Russia but he was their inspiration.His bending shot that nestled in the corner marked the second of a three-goal thrashing of Argentina. His celebration shared with the fans, all floppy hair and clenched fists, became an enduring image of the tournament.Success internationally has been as rare for Modric as it has been free-flowing for his club. One league title and four in the Champions League for Real Madrid hardly points to a player undersold by his achievements.But there was something in what Sergio Ramos said on Saturday. “Maybe there are players with more marketing, with a bigger name,” Ramos said. “But Modric deserves that award.”It was taken by many as a shot at Ronaldo, who departed for Juventus in July and, along with Mohamed Salah, completes the three-man list.Perhaps, but Ramos may also have been highlighting what fans at the Santiago Bernabeu witness every week. Modric is not a headline-maker like Gareth Bale, Isco or Ronaldo but he is often the most influential on the way the team plays.When Ronaldo’s departure was confirmed, Ramos wrote in a farewell message: “Your goals, your numbers and everything we’ve won together speak for themselves.”– Unheralded hero –Modric regularly escapes the attentions of physically bigger players © AFP/File / Francisco LEONGModric’s numbers, the goal-related ones at least, say very little. He has never scored more than three goals in a single league season for Madrid and has only twice reached six assists. In six seasons in Spain, he has finished with only one league goal to his name four times.But there are others that offer a glimpse into his work as a playmaker and enforcer.He posted the most attempted passes (484), most touches (624) and most recoveries (56) of any player at the World Cup. Last season, he was the only Madrid player to combine exceeding 50 shots (55) with more than 50 successful dribbles (73) and more than 200 recoveries (254).In the World Cup final, he played 72 passes, more than twice as many as any French player. The closest was Paul Pogba with 35.It was France and Pogba hoisting the trophy though, their victory a triumph not so much for craft but dynamism, speed and physicality.Where possession was once king, the game now looks to quick transitions and counter-attack. Even Luis Enrique has set about making Spain’s passing identity more “nuanced”.Modric may not see the end of this trend — he turned 33 on Sunday — but neither has his star been dimmed by it.When he joined Tottenham from Dinamo Zagreb, he had been heavily scouted by Arsenal but was overlooked, considered too slight to be a Premier League midfielder.He has put his ability to hold off and wriggle through heftier opponents down to a combination of a low centre of gravity and an iron-will, honed by a loan spell in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a teenager.When Croatia face Spain in Elche on Tuesday, they will meet a side still plugging the gap left by their own pass-master in the retired Andres Iniesta.“It’s a great challenge to play against Luka in the Spanish league and it’s even better to play with him for our country,” Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic said. “Hopefully we will get to enjoy him a little bit more.”They should savour it while it lasts.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Modric was named UEFA’s men’s player of the year in August © AFP/File / Valery HACHEMADRID, Spain, Sep 10 – Dejan Lovren was probably right in saying that if Luka Modric played for Spain or Germany he might not have won a Ballon d’Or by now — nobody other than Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo has for 10 years — but he might well have been in the running.He is this year, albeit for FIFA’s equivalent prize, the Best Men’s Player, and it validates Lovren’s theory that his first nomination comes after Croatia did at the World Cup what Spain or Germany had done at four of the last five major tournaments. They reached the final.

BEST OF gameday cracker Much credit should go to Huddersfield, who matched their illustrious opponents for long periods only to still be left searching for the killer touch.David Wagner’s side hit a post through Jonathan Hogg and had an effort ruled out for offside as they set an unwanted club record of failing to score in seven straight home Premier League games.Liverpool were clearly not at their best as they clinched their first win in five matches in all competitions and extended their unbeaten league start to nine.Neither side had had an attempt on goal when Liverpool broke the deadlock in the 24th minute with two incisive passes and a consummate finish. latest Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos Mohamed Salah ended his mini goal drought as Liverpool won 1-0 at Huddersfield to reaffirm their Premier League title credentials.Salah slotted home his fourth goal of the season and first in five matches midway through the first half, but it was by no means a convincing victory for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Hogg’s brilliant long-range effort struck Alisson Becker’s right-hand post and Philip Billing’s free-kick flashed narrowly wide as they pressed for the equaliser. Huddersfield spurned their best second-half chance in the 82nd minute when their two substitutes combined.Winger Isaac Mbenza’s cross bounced off Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren in the area and Steve Mounie snatched at his chance, firing off target from six yards.The miss summed up Huddersfield’s season and they remain without a win, while Liverpool are level on points with Manchester City at the top of the table. 3 Most Popular Football News tense Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions 3 LATEST Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT Town fans raised the volume some more when Alex Pritchard turned home Hogg’s pass into the box in the 43rd minute, but his effort was correctly ruled out as he had strayed offside.Georginio Wijnaldum, half-brother of Huddersfield substitute Rajiv van La Parra, replaced Jordan Henderson at half-time, while Daniel Surridge lifted two efforts off target soon after play resumed.Huddersfield impressed again in the build-up to Laurent Depoitre’s goalbound header, which was comfortably saved by Alisson, with Aaron Mooy, Mathias Jorgensen and Florent Hadergjonaj all involved.Town skipper Christopher Schindler’s sliding near-post block thwarted Liverpool defender Andrew Robertson’s dangerous cross, but that was as close as the visitors got in the second period.
