Lawmakers raise ‘shabu’ case vs Paolo Duterte

"Is he preempting an Ombudsman decision on his corruption case?" This was the reaction of Magdalo Rep. Gary Alejano to Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte's announcement on Monday to resign four months after he was linked to the smuggling of P6.4 billion worth of "shabu" (crystal meth) through the Bureau of Customs. In a statement, Alejano said on Tuesday the resignation of the elder son of President Duterte would "not erase the fact that the 604-kilogram shabu shipment issue has not been addressed yet and the brains behind have not been identified and arrested." The Office of the Ombudsman created a panel in October to look into the allegation that "the release [of the drugs fr...Keep on reading: Lawmakers raise ‘shabu’ case vs Paolo Duterte.....»»

Gatlin fires coach, shocked by newspaper allegations

LONDON (AP) — World 100-meter champion Justin Gatlin fired coach Dennis Mitchell following an undercover investigation reported Tuesday that appeared to show people linked to the sprinter offering to supply performance-enhancing drugs.   A post shared by justingatlin (@justingatlin) on Dec 18, 2017 at 11:20pm PST "I was shocked and surprised to learn that my coach would have anything to do with even the appearance of these current accusations," Gatlin wrote in a post on his Instagram account. "I fired him as soon as I found out about this." The IAAF's Athletics Integrity Unit said it is investigating the allegations in conjunction with the United States Anti-Doping Agency. The report was published in Tuesday's edition of British newspaper The Daily Telegraph. "These allegations are very serious," said Brett Clothier, head of the AIU, "and strike at the heart of the integrity of athletics." IAAF President Sebastian Coe said the allegations are "extremely serious." The Telegraph reported that Mitchell and a track agent, Robert Wagner, met undercover reporters at a training camp in Florida and offered to supply and administer testosterone and human growth hormone for an actor training for a film, for a fee of $250,000. The newspaper said Mitchell and Wagner were secretly recorded saying the use of banned substances in track was widespread. The 35-year-old Gatlin, who also won the 100 meters at the 2004 Athens Olympics, has served two doping bans in his career. "I am not using and have not used PEDs," Gatlin wrote in his Instagram post. "All legal options are on the table as I will not allow others to lie about me like this. I have no further comments as it is now a legal matter. They will next hear from my lawyer." Coe said the IAAF has started to focus on the "influences that surround athletes" and stressed that all support personnel are bound by the governing body's anti-doping code and integrity code of conduct......»»
