England beat India by 6 wickets in lone T20 match

first_imgA win eluded India once again as they lost the lone Twenty20 International against England by six wickets at the Old Trafford on Wednesday.Sterling displays from Eoin Morgan (49) and Jade Dernbach (4/22) helped England scamper home to a six-wicket win in a tense Twenty20.Opting to bat first on a sluggish track, India made a competitive 165 all out in 19.4 over after valuable contributions by debutants Ajinkya Rahane (61) and Rahul Dravid (31).Rahane’s eye-catching 49-ball innings was studded with eight fours and Dravid playing in his first and last Twenty20 International smacked three consecutive sixes off Samit Patel to score a 31 from 21. Suresh Raina, who had a miserable Test series, also scored a useful 33 from 19.India, however, were largely done in by Dernbach’s array of slower balls and yorkers as he returned with his career-best figures of four for 22 from 3.4 overs.England made a slow start, losing debutant Alex Hales to a second-ball duck off Praveen Kumar and were 17 for one after three of their Powerplay overs.Kevin Pietersen scored 23-ball 33 but it was Morgan’s 27-ball 49 that kept England in the match.England needed 10 runs off the last over, and Samit Patel (25) and Ravi Bopara (31) held their nerves to take the team safely with three balls to spare.In the last over, umpire Rob Bailey erroneously called wide when Vinay Kumar pitched his first delivery just inside the tramlines and then Patel came up with two streaky fours and a slap over extra cover to pull England over the line.Both players were booed by Indian fans for their decision to play against their country of birth, but their turned the jeers into cheers with their unbroken partnership of 35 that secured the win for England.advertisementlast_img read more

Ministry Sensitizing Law Enforcers About Child Labour

first_imgThe Ministry of Labour and Social Security, in collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO), has embarked on several initiatives, aimed at sensitizing law enforcers about the ongoing issue of child labour in Jamaica.Project Officer of ILO TACKLE in Jamaica, Nasolo Thompson,said many persons, including law enforcers, are not fully aware of the issue of child labour in Jamaica, and how it should be dealt with legally, hence the rationale behind the move.Mrs. Thompson was addressing a meeting involving stakeholders of the TACKLE Project, held recently at the Ministry’s North Street Office, in Kingston.“We are currently offering support to the Ministry to develop a national child labour policy. We have also conducted research among the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) to determine what are their attitude and practices towards child labour. Based on the results from the research, we have developed a training manual to address some of the gaps indentified, which will be incorporated into the JCF’s training programme,” she said.Mrs. Thompson cited a research manual that was developed, in collaboration with the office of the Chief Justice, which outlines what child labour is, the national laws that apply, and case examples from other countries, demonstrating how it can be dealt with lawfully.“What we have come to realize is that judges and lawyers have their ethics that they are guided.by. So we are working to have a comprehensive child labour document that they can refer to, in the event of a case,” she explained.The TACKLE Project Officer said, in reality, the first responders of child labour must be identified, in order for a case to be brought before the court, from encounter through to resolution.“We are anticipating that the JCF, judges, lawyers, prosecutors, parole officers, court clerks, guidance counsellors, social workers, and teachers will have a greater understanding of the issue, because these people really make up the core of first responders in any given scenario,” Mrs. Thompson said.“We want people to be sensitized about child labour, so if a child is seen in a particular setting that looks like he or she is being exploited, then it should raise some red flags, and persons will be prompted to report such a case,” she emphasised.The TACKLE project, which is an initiative of the ILO, in collaboration with the Child Labour Unit (CLU) of the Ministry, seeks to address child labour through education, and is ongoing.To report cases of child labour, persons can contact the Child Labour Unit at 948-0098, or the Ministry at 922-9500-14.Contact: Jeneva Gordonlast_img read more

Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam suspends controversial extradition bill until further notice

first_imgMass demonstration against the proposed extradition law proposal on June 9, 2019, in Hong KongGetty ImagesThe controversial law that prompted Hong Kong into mass demonstrations of dissent has been officially suspended until further notice.In an official press conference held in Hong Kong on  Saturday, June 15, the severely criticised Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced that the pro-Beijing lawmakers had urged the government to delay the bill.Referring to the massive protest that the bill generated from Hong Kong’s citizens, Lam said that “We should pause and think instead of assuming the second reading of the bill in the Legislative Council as scheduled,” reported Hong Kong Free Press.She further said that the Government of Hong Kong is reflecting on the protests and is adopting an open mind “to heed comprehensively” the views of all sections of the society.However, she insisted that the “loophole” in the Hong Kong criminal justice system, which according to her was the main reason behind pushing forward the contentious bill, continue to persist and clarified the fact that the government has not completely retracted the bill. Lam cited the murder case in Taiwan, in which the alleged perpetrator, a Hong Kong man, fled to the city had prompted the two countries to re-evaluate the criminal justice system affecting both the countries.The Taiwanese authorities have however said that it would not seek the extradition of the accused man as the proposed bill is suspected to put its citizens at risk.Dismissing questions whether she will resign after the widespread dissent over her proposed bill, she said that “We regret that this incident caused a split in society.”Earlier, before she became the Chief Executive in 2017, Lam had said that she would resign “if mainstream opinion makes me no longer able to continue the job,” CNN reported.Last week, at least a million protesters marched against the passing of the contentious extradition law. The massive demonstration turned violent after the riot police armed with batons arrived at the government headquarters in the Admiralty business district and subjected tear gas and pepper sprays against protestors who charged and hurled the police barricades.However, the public is still suspicious and holds its position of Beijing being the mastermind behind the law based on last month’s incident in which a politburo member revealed that its targets included foreigners who had committed crimes against Chinese national security outside China.The anxiety of Hong Kong bending before Beijing’s imposition had plagued the minds of many before the recent demonstrations.In April, pro-democracy protest organisers were jailed for taking part in the Umbrella Movement protests in 2014 in which demonstration for seeking free, transparent elections from China had been sought by the public.last_img read more
