He further noted that the delivery date for the vehicles was set for August this year.The contract to secure the vehicles was approved by Cabinet on April 10. Speaking at a post-Cabinet press briefing last month, Information and Development Minister, Senator Colin Campbell, pointed out that the acquisition of the vehicles, “will ease the severe shortage of adequate vehicles to transport prisoners”.“The lack of these vehicles is severely restricting the movement of detainees to and from courts and is contributing to the backlog of court cases,” the Information Minister noted at the time.

first_img Chelsea bring back an old Jose Mourinho ruse “I think it is a bad injury,” said the angry coach. “He had a small injury that stopped him from playing the last couple of matches, but the medical department said he was 100 percent ready for last Saturday (against Huddersfield). CET Ander Herrera went off injured in the 18th minute and the coach said it was the fault of medical staff saying that the Spaniard was fit, when he wasn’t. Jose Mourinho railed against his medical staff during the 0-0 draw with Sevilla, perhaps as a way of drawing conversation away from a lamentable attacking performance at the Sanchez-Pizjuan by his side.

first_imgThe Nelson Selects came out on the short end of a 3-2 score in the U12 Girl’s bronze medal game of the 13th annual Little Bear Youth Soccer Tournament Sunday in Revelstoke.Nelson lost to the host Revelstoke squad by the single goal in the medal round. The tournament was the first time this season the Selects played in an eight-vs-eight event. Normally the squad plays 11-a-side so the players needed to adjust to net size and different positions. Still the squad, led by the offensive showing of Emily Graeme, Amy Hodgson, Emma Wheeldon and Laurel Halleran, played well against much older teams. Nelson finished the tournament with 1-2-1 record, with the highlight of the weekend coming against Canmore Blacks. The Selects scored a 1-1 draw against the silver medal winners from Alberta. Nelson defeated Canmore Reds before losing to Kootenay South 3-1. Graeme paced the Selects attack with four goals while Hodgson added a pair. Wheeldon and Halleran each scored singles. Emma Gregorich was solid between the pipes all weekend for the Selects. The Revelstoke tournament is the final Rep event of the season. However, the future looks bright for this team — which plays three 10-year-olds on the field — as most of the squad is back for another season.last_img read more
