The Supreme Court (SC) has affirmed the acquittal of former first lady and now Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos on her dollar salting case for illegally stowing away millions of dollars in Swiss bank accounts.   In a decision dated June 27 but only made public on Friday, the high court affirmed the 2008 acquittal of late President Ferdinand Marcos' wife from 32 counts of dollar-salting by Judge Silvino Pampilo Jr. of the Manila Regional Trial Court (RTC).   This was despite the existence of dollar accounts linked to Marcos foundations in Switzerland.   Pampilo earlier said the government failed to prove that Marcos and a deceased associate conspired no...Keep on reading: SC affirms Imelda Marcos’ dollar salting acquittal.....»»

UEFA to judge Cristiano Ronaldo red-card case next week

NYON, Switzerland --- Cristiano Ronaldo should learn next Thursday if he is banned from playing at former club Manchester United in the Champions League. UEFA says its disciplinary panel will judge the case of Ronaldo's first Champions League red card on Sept. 27. Ronaldo tangled with Valencia's Jeison Murillo, appearing to tug at the defender's hair, in the first half of Juventus' 2-0 win on Wednesday. The UEFA panel studies all red-card cases and has the power to extend the mandatory one-game ban. Ronaldo will miss a home game against Young Boys on Oct. 2. The subsequent game for Juventus is on Oct. 23 at Old Trafford, where Ronaldo played for six years. He won the f...Keep on reading: UEFA to judge Cristiano Ronaldo red-card case next week.....»»

NYON, Switzerland --- UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin has denied reports in Spain of ongoing talks to play the 2021 Champions League final in New York.

Neymar gets goal, yellow card for diving as Brazil romps 5-0

By Bobby Bancroft, Associated Press LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Neymar converted a penalty kick for the second straight game, assisted on three goals and was given a yellow card for diving as Brazil routed El Salvador 5-0 on Tuesday night in an exhibition in front of just 28,511. The crowd was less than half the 67,619 who attended the Selecao's previous appearance at FedEx Field, against the U.S. in 2012. Jair Marrufo, one of the American referees at this year's World Cup, gave Neymar the yellow card in the 44th after the forward attempted to dribble past defender Bryan Tamacas. Richarlison got his first two international goals, and Phillipe Coutinho also scored for Brazil. Neymar converted a penalty kick in the fourth minute after Richarlison was taken down. With 59 goals in 92 international appearances, he is third in Brazilian history behind Pele (77) and Ronaldo (62). Neymar dribbled past two defenders in the 16th minute before laying off a pass to Richarlison, who one-timed a shot from the edge of a penalty area in his second international appearance. Neymar hit the crossbar in the 22nd minute, Coutinho scored from Neymar's squaring pass in the 30th minute and Richarlison got his second goal in the 50th when he pounced on a loose ball. Neymar's corner kick in the 90th minute was headed in by Marquinhos......»»

UN sees 70% chance of El Niño event this year

GENEVA, Switzerland--- An El Nio event that could disrupt global weather is likely by the end of what has already been a hot year, the UN said Monday. The World Meteorological Organization forecast "a 70 percent chance of an El Nio developing by the end of this year," a WMO statement said. El Nio is triggered by periodic warming in the eastern Pacific Ocean which can trigger drought in some regions, heavy rain in others. "WMO does not expect the anticipated El Nio to be as powerful as the 2015-2016 event, but it will still have considerable impacts," the statement said.

Global emissions cuts could start after 2030

  BANGKOK, Thailand --- Radical emissions reductions needed to slow down a warming planet could take effect by 2031, six years after countries submit their pledges to the United Nations. Government representatives are scrambling to craft options for the rulebook of the Paris Agreement --- the landmark climate treaty that seeks to limit global temperature rise to well below 2C. In a meeting among negotiators on Tuesday, countries such as Brazil and Canada proposed an option to report Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) by 2025, and communicate again by 2030 to begin the implementation by 2031. NDCs provide an overview of the greenhouse gas (GhG) emissions cuts and ...Keep on reading: Global emissions cuts could start after 2030.....»»

Free from jihadist grip, Iraqi weightlifters target medals

Two years ago, the Islamic State group offered two successful Iraqi weightlifters a choice -- either they compete in the Rio Paralympics, or stay in Mosul, then controlled by the jihadists. An easy way to escape the group's two-year occupation of Iraq's second city, one might think. But there was a big catch. "IS wanted us to hoist their flag instead of the Iraqi national flag in international competitions," says Faris al-Ajeeli, referring to himself and fellow weightlifter Thaer al-Ali. Going to Rio and disobeying IS would have left their families back in Mosul at risk of reprisals. So "we couldn't go to Brazil", says Ajeeli, who had come away from London 2012 with a ...Keep on reading: Free from jihadist grip, Iraqi weightlifters target medals.....»»
