Wanted bulletin issued for Maverick DeAbreu

first_imgBenjai’s assaultThe Guyana Police Force on Monday issued a wanted bulletin for Maverick DeAbreu for questioning in relation to an attack on Trinidadian Soca sensation Rodney LeBlanc, also called Benjai, and Tiffany and Jamele Hubbard, which occurred outside a popular Main Street night spot on April 16, 2017.DeAbreu is also accused of discharging a loaded firearm at Ruimveldt, Georgetown.The 27-year-old man is accused of hitting LeBlanc to the face with a glass bottle, causing him to suffer severe injuries during an argument moments after the Soca artiste wrapped up a concert.While information remains sketchy about the circumstances surrounding the incident, Guyana Times understands there was indeed a heated argument between the Soca artiste, who was allegedly heavily intoxicated, and a taxi driver. It was reported that three of the six ladies who were with Benjai were leaning on the taxi driver’s car and although he asked them to desist from doing so, they continued.It was at this time, the artiste reportedly started to hit the back of the car with the bottle he had in his hand. Reports are the driver came out of his car and Benjai reportedly advanced towards him. However, after seeing the commotion outside, DeAbreu allegedly rushed out and dealt the singer one blow to his face with a bottle.It was reported that earlier in the night, Benjai had misbehaved with DeAbreu’s girlfriend. Meanwhile, the Police are asking anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of DeAbreu to contact them on telephone numbers 225-6411, 226-1389, or 911, or at the nearest police station.All information will be treated with the strictest confidence.last_img read more

Hydro tweaking highway realignment after First Nations voice concerns

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — BC Hydro says that it has made some changes to its plans for the realignment of Highway 29 west of Fort St. John.In response to an inquiry about BC Hydro’s reaction to a letter from Treaty 8 chiefs Roland Willson and Lynette Tsakoza to Premier Christy Clark, spokesperson Crystal Sharwood said that the design of the realignment in the Cache Creek area has been refined. Sharwood said that though there has been extensive archeological work, BC Hydro has not confirmed that there are any Aboriginal burial sites in the area of the project. However, she explained that the West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations notified BC Hydro about the location of a potential burial site in March, and that Hydro is meeting with members of the two First Nations this week.Sharwood added that in the area of the potential site, the design of the highway has been refined to mitigate impacts of the new road. “This includes lengthening the bridge by 50 metres to avoid ground disturbance of the potential burial site, and raising the height of the bridge to provide approximately two metres clearance above the specific site and therefore avoid disturbing the site,” stated Sharwood in an email.- Advertisement -Chief Roland Willson spoke with Energeticcity.ca last week, when he stated that he was concerned that the reason for Hydro’s choice of realignment over alternatives has not been released. When asked about Willson’s concerns, Sharwood stated that, “The realignment of Highway 29 at Cache Creek – including the preferred route – was reviewed as part of the federal-provincial environmental assessment process for Site C in the context of other routes that had been identified.”She also added that a list of documents outlining BC Hydro’s process for choosing the alignment is on the Site C project’s website.

‘We’ll see the Yaya from two seasons ago’ – Pellegrini tips Toure to return to top form

first_imgManchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has tipped star midfielder Yaya Toure to return to his best form this season after opening the new Premier League campaign with a brace against West Brom.The Blues eased to a 3-0 win at the Hawthorns, with the Ivorian opening the scoring with a deflected shot off team-mate David Silva, before doubling their lead with wonderful curling effort inside the half-hour mark.Captain Vincent Kompany’s late header capped off a strong performance from the two-time champions and Pellegrini reckons, after a stuttering season last year, Toure will shine again following a dominant display.I always said last season it was a strange season for Yaya, he started with a lot of problems, the death of his brother, his agents”, said the Chilean.“I think he was not focused on what he had to do last year.“We spoke before the start of the season and I am very sure we will see the Yaya from two years ago. He is a very important player for us.“I don’t think Yaya deserved the amount of criticism he received last season.“He is an important player for us. It is very difficult for a player when you have so many problems.”Pellegrini also praised the efforts of £49million summer signing Raheem Sterling on his club debut.The former Liverpool man played 74 minutes but largely played second fiddle to City’s old guard before being replaced by Samir Nasri.Sterling had a few chances and was denied a debut goal by Baggies keeper Boaz Myhill when clean through, but but Pelegrini insisted he was happy with the 20-year-old’s contribution.The Blues boss added: “I’m not disappointed because Raheem played 70 minutes very well. It is not easy for him to play a new style with new teammates, he worked a lot and he had two clear chances.“If he continues to play like this I am sure he will be the player we bought.” Manchester City and Ivory Coast star Yaya Toure 1last_img read more
