The derby is a must watch every season with Saints

first_imgThe derby is a must watch every season with Saints having chalked up the first meeting on Good Friday 21-18.“There’s two reasons why it should be a great game,” Justin said. “Wigan have not lost at home all season and it is the clubs’ biggest rivalry. They will also be disappointed after their defeat last week too.“We know they will have a few players missing but as for how they will play, that is irrelevant. Both teams have a good enough squad to cope if they have a few players out and let’s be honest we know they won’t be poor. They will be ready to play whoever is out there and we will need to be as well.“The players set standards here and at present we are playing to them every week. We want to keep that going. Last week was a massive win for us; Hull are chasing fourth spot so for us to play well was really pleasing.“We are playing second this week and they want to close the gap on us and are being chased by Castleford too. It should be a great game.”Saints will be without Zeb Taia after he suffered a compound fracture in the win over Hull FC – but the good news is he could return for next Thursday’s home clash with Warrington.“All we have to do is wait the wound to heal which is great news,” he added. “He won’t play this week by may play against Warrington if it has healed in time. It could have been a lot worse.”Tickets for Thursday’s derby with Wigan remain on sale from the Ticket Office and there is FREE coach travel available for 2018 Members.To claim simply call into the ticket office or telephone 01744 455 052.You can buy your tickets via the two options above, or online here.last_img read more

What would Russia say about Joseph Muscat

first_imgThere is the potential that Russia could retaliate specifically against Prime Minister Joseph Muscat, after it emerges Malta has denied them clearance to fly military planes over the country’s airspace.In an article published on Buzzfeed News, ‘a senior diplomatic source’ tells the publication that Russia had not taken the decision well and it may seek to spread what the source calls ‘a misinformation campaign during or after next month’s European Parliamentary elections’The reaction follows the Maltese government’s decision to deny access to Russian military planes hoping to enter its airspace this week and take a flight plan between Syria and Venezuela.The request made by the Russian embassy in Valletta to the Maltese government asked for access for two Russian military aircraft to fly over Maltese airspace on route from Damascus and Khmeimim in Syria and Caracas between April 16th and 19th.This will be the second time that Russia has requested access to Maltese airspace with the first time being granted back in March.Buzzfeed News reports that according to flight tracking, there is evidence of a Russian military plane flying from Syria to Venezuela and crossing over Cyprus, Greece and then Malta on March 23rd.The two aircraft are understood to be the same ones identified in photographs taken at Simón Bolívar International Airport in Venezuela.  The New York Times citing information from RIA Novosti news agency says that the flights ‘were routine’ and loaded with technical staff and supplies.Humanitarian not militaryThe latest flight would be intended for ‘humanitarian’ means which includes the supply of food, fuel and diesel generators as well as a small army of engineers, technicians and medical professionals which would be required by the Russian diplomatic mission. They stress that they are not bringing weapons or ‘harmful materials.’The move sparks concerns in the international community as the Kremlin is understood to be an ally of the former Venezuela Nicolás Maduro.  Reuters news agency reported back at the beginning of the year that Russian government was sending over private military contractors to support Maduro’s security.During the Hugo Chavez’s tenure, Russia had arranged $11 billion (€9.7bn) in contracts which supplied a series of military items including tanks, fighter jets and air defence systems.While the Russian government supports Maduro, his opponent and self- proclaimed leader Juan Guaidó have been receiving recognition and support from the US and European leaders.Questions have been sent to the Office of the Prime Minister requesting a reaction to the news.WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a> SharePrintlast_img read more

Malta needs to improve coordination and response to trafficking – US report

first_imgMalta needs to improve coordination across its ministries to respond to and deal with human trafficking.According to the latest US Trafficking in Persons Report, while the government had acted to increase its prevention efforts, and continues to carry out its action plan for 2017/19, there have been concerns raised by entities and NGOs involved in the trafficking committee that say that there remains a, ‘lack of effective interagency coordination on trafficking issues’This is just one of the recommendations presented by the latest report which highlights Malta’s response and efforts to tackle human trafficking. This is also the eighth consecutive year that Malta has remained at Tier Two of the US’ Trafficking assessments and unable to reach, ‘the minimum standards for the elimination of trafficking.’In addition to coordination problems, the country report also recommends that Malta do more to, ‘Vigorously and expeditiously investigate and prosecute trafficking offenses, including convicting traffickers and sentencing convicted traffickers to significant prison terms.’ Malta has only tried and convicted one trafficker since 2012, they state.Suspended sentenceThe report states that Malta tried and convicted a trafficker in March 2018, a decade after the case was brought against them but the sentence was suspended.They state that there is a, ‘perennial issue of slow court proceedings continued to hamper prosecutions and convictions.’Added to this, the report also outlines that, ‘There were no new investigations or prosecutions of government employees complicit in trafficking offenses.’They also state that while the criminal code instituted penalties of between 4 and 12 years imprisonment for trafficking and associated crimes, there have been fewer investigations carried out in 2018 compared to 2017. They account for 3 last year compared to 7 in the previous year. They also state that investigations of illegal prostitution carried out through massage parlours had turned up no evidence of trafficking.Conversely, 10 people were prosecuted in 2018, 8 for labour and 2 for sex trafficking. This is eight more than 2017.Maltese girl among sex trafficking victimsAccording to the report, one Maltese girl was among the 24 trafficking victims identified in 2018.She was identified to be among two known cases of sex trafficking in the reporting period. The second involved a Moldovan woman.This, according to the report, is the first time in the Maltese context, that a child victim has been identified and referred to care.This is understood to be a little less than 2017 in which 30 foreign victims were identified in the previous period of reporting.Forced labour victims:17 – Filipinos (13 from one single case)3 – Mauritians1 – Nepalese1 – PakistaniBy gender: 16 – Male / 6 femaleThe report also outlines that the last year saw the authorities institute a policy that removed the work permits from trafficking victims and instead providing temporary residence permits to 15 of those identified.It is also understood that victims were given the opportunity to file legal cases against their employers for unpaid work and other monies.The full report and its recommendations can be read hereWhatsApp SharePrint <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more

Uganda Thugs steal State House drug monitoring unit computers

first_imgAdvertisement “We suspect that the thugs’ interest was not in the computers but in the information that was stored in them. Investigations have already started and we are sure that the suspects will be arrested soon.” So far no one has been arrested.The unit was set up by President Museveni to investigate theft of drugs and medical equipment in public hospitals.Since its establishment, the unit has investigated over 150 cases related to misuse of health funds, arrested and prosecuted over 100 health officers. Mr Byaruhanga, however, said they have a backup of the information that was stolen. “The stolen information will not impact on our investigations of high profile people in the health sector because whatever was stolen is in our backup computers,” he said. – Advertisement – The thugs failed to gain entry to the unit’s top managers’ offices, the officer said.Asked whether they did not have security at the unit offices by the time the incident happened, Mr Byaruhanga said the guard could have been asleep.Uganda spends between Shs600 billions on healthcare sector annually but a big part of the funds do not reach the end users due to wide cases of corruption.

Facebook Has 955 Million Active Users — Still Shy of a Billion

first_imgAdvertisement Some observers — and more than a few Facebook employees — had hoped this number would hit the magic billion by the time its second quarter results came out (ie. today). Others, such as Gregory Lyons, a senior analyst at iCrossing, predicted the billion mark would be reached in August. Now it’s looking more like those champagne corks will pop in September, or even October.Nine hundred and fifty-five million users, of course, is still a superlative achievement. Facebook can also boast that 552 million of them log in every day — up from 526 million in April. The 955 million number also represents 29% growth in users year on year.When Facebook first filed its IPO paperwork with the SEC in February, the network had 845 million users. It hit the 500 million mark back in mid 2010, hence the tag line for that year’s award-winning movie The Social Network: “you don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.” The number was out of date by the time those posters hit billboards. – Advertisement – Source: Mashablelast_img read more
