Dead are 37-year-old Leelawattie Sookhoo and her daughter, Tisha Ahiram. According to reports, the discovery was made on May 24 after Police in Suriname received a report that the woman’s boyfriend who was supposed to be at work did not show up.When the Police arrived at the house to check for the man, they found that the front door of the building was locked with a padlock and thought that something was amiss.They subsequently broke the padlock and entered only to find the woman lying on the ground with a cord around her neck, while the child was on the bed in a semi nude state.Surinamese law enforcement officers have launched an investigation into the double homicide.Guyana Times understands that the area where the woman lived with her children is known as a fishing area where many Guyanese reside. Nandranie Ahiram, a former mother-in-law of the dead woman, told Guyana Times that they received the dreadful news on Tuesday morning.She noted that the now dead woman was married to her son, but they separated a few years ago after she befriended the man she lived with up to the time of her demise.The former mother-in-law added that the mother of five returned to Guyana last December with her daughter, but despite the fact that one of her four sons begged her to reconcile the relationship with his father, she refused. She went back in January with her daughter, but her four sons remained with their father. She has no other relatives in Suriname, the former mother-in-law related.She noted that her son was devastated by the death of his 10-year-old daughter.

Manchester City would win Premier League title with THIS former Liverpool boss in charge

first_imgBruce Grobbelaar believes Manchester City will win the Premier League title if they land former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez this summer.The Spaniard, who is currently in charge of Serie A side Napoli, has been linked with a move to the Etihad at the end of the season, should Manuel Pellegrini be given his marching orders.Benitez won the FA Cup and Champions League during his time at Anfield, and led Chelsea to Europa League glory during a brief spell in charge of the Blues.And former Liverpool goalkeeper Grobbelaar believes City would be getting one of the best bosses in European football if they landed the Spaniard.“If there was one manager who I would want to come back to Liverpool it would be Rafa Benitez,” he told Extra Time.“He’s a great manager and motivator.

Norwich boss to consider future at the end of the season

first_img Norwich City Alex Neil moved to Carrow Road in January 2015 1 Norwich manager Alex Neil is disappointed by the departure of the club’s chief executive and says he will assess his own position at the end of the season.David McNally announced his resignation following the Canaries’ loss to Manchester United on Saturday, which left the team four points adrift of safety with two games left to play.Norwich play Watford on Wednesday, with the future of Hornets head coach Quique Sanchez Flores increasingly uncertain, but Neil’s side will be relegated regardless if Sunderland beat Everton.Asked if he would consider his own future should Norwich go down, Neil said: “I’ll certainly look at my contribution this season, look at my team individually in terms of their contribution and the bigger picture in terms of the club and what we’ve managed to do on the field and off the field.“Recruitment is a part of that, a whole load of things needs analysing.“I’ll speak to the powers that be and the board but I don’t think anything is ever off the table in football. We spoke about Quique Flores earlier on.“At the end of the season I’ll be judging how I’ve performed, how other people have performed and I’m pretty sure people will be judging me. That’s normal in the Premier League.”Asked he still wants to be at Norwich, Neil said: “Of course, this is a club I’ve been given the task to help.“Unfortunately we’re not in the position I’d like us to be but we need to crack on and see where it takes us.”McNally was a key figure in appointing Neil as manager in January 2015 and had been at the club since 2009, when the Canaries were languishing in League One.“I’m disappointed he left the club, I had a real good relationship with David,” Neil said.“He showed trust and faith in me, he helped bring me to the club. I’m surprised, disappointed. I think we’ve lost a really important figure for us.”last_img read more

SUPER KARL JUST MISSES OUT ON WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL

first_imgKarl Griffin (UCD AC) was the last of the Irish competitors at the World Junior Championships in Oregon last night, the Donegal athlete finishing fourth in his 800m semi-final in 1:49.97. Griffin’s time was unfortunately not fast enough to advance to today’s final as a fastest loser.The 19-year-old UCD AC athlete positioned himself well throughout the race as the field went through 400m in 53.94 seconds. On the back straight, Griffin moved up from sixth to fourth, and challenged for third place all the way down the home straight, but eventually had to settle for fourth.“I’m a bit disappointed today,” he said afterwards. “I thought I could make the final out here, but I just came up short. I finished the competition ranked 12th, so that’s not bad. “I’ll go home now and sit down with my coach and figure out if I’ll run any more races this year. It’s been a great experience out here. Running in this stadium, against this level of competition, will only do me good in the future.” SUPER KARL JUST MISSES OUT ON WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL was last modified: July 27th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:800Mathleticsdonegalkarl griffinWorld Junior Championshipslast_img read more

DD Motoring: Taking the new Fiat Doublo Maxi for a spin

first_imgThis week our report takes a slightly different direction on a new car available on the Irish Car Market. The car in question can arrive from Italy as a seven-seater people carrier. But in Ireland it arrives as a 5 seater with a bulkhead fitted behind the rear seats. The people carrier we tested this week was the multi functional Fiat Doublo Maxi.It’s not enough anymore for a car manufacturer to make a car to suit a single market. The Doblo not alone is multi-talented within The Italian car maker Fiat , it’s also successful with the German carmaker Opel and is a Fiat Doublo in everything but the brand name on the bonnet. It’s called the Opel Combi and is both in van and in car form. We are testing the new long-wheel version, the Maxi which is 35cm longer than the standard wheelbase version.A view of how on how easy access is on the new Fiat Doblo is on the car we tested this week. Photo Brian McDaidThe new Fiat Dublo is fitted with the new 1.6 diesel engine which produces 105 bhp. The car also comes with a six speed gear box. My every day van is the Opel version of this Doblo with the 1.3 90bhp multi-jet Diesel engine which I get great economy and power from. The 1.6 has more torque and power but still returns similar fuel consumption to the smaller unit. The double sliding doors for the rear seat passengers and the higher stance make access getting in and out of this people carrier a treat. From a drivers point of view sitting higher up you have a great view of the road ahead and I find also that this makes it easier to judge for driving and parking.The patrician or bulkhead fitted in the Fiat Doblo which leaves it VAT reclaimable as a commercial vehicle and also has a lower VRT rating. Photo Brian McDaidDaylight robbery It was William III that introduced “The Window Tax” back in the day on the amount of light entering a home. This was on top of tax on the house. So a way around this was to build the windows in the structure of a house but then blocked up to cut the amount of extra tax payable on a family home. The term “daylight robbery” may well have come from the introduction of this added tax.This in no different today. but instead of targeting the home its the family cars with another as a way of extracting tax from us in every way possible that the state can come up with. And like the old Georgian Houses that had blocked out windows, large family people carriers are getting a patrician fitted called a bulkhead after it leaves the factory and what it’s basically is saying is that the boot area in this people carrier is for Commercial use. This is now class this as commercial vehicle with seating for up to four passengers and a driver, the bulkhead in the Doblo just looks like what pet owners would use to keep the dog in the boot of the car. For the self employed that are VAT registered this people carrier can have the VAT claimed back on it and also has a lower rate of VRT as a commercial vehicle, the tax is this country is “daylight robbery” So its nice to see some way of getting round this system.So a Fiat Doblo maxi will cost you €16,995 plus VAT at 23% which can be claimed back if you are registered for VAT. Even if you aren’t the all in price of €20,900 is still great value because of the fitting of the bulkhead which reduced the VRT on the list price for a people carrier to this size.Summing up I love the practicality of the of This Fiat Doblo, in the times that we live in this this is a great offer for any new car owner who also needs a good bit of space in the boot (for commercial use only of course)! The multi jet diesel engines go on for ever if they are looked after, I know because I and on my second one both of which have over 17,000km on the clock, The introduction of this bulk head might not suit everyone, but it will help make things meet in a life where we are taxed to death in the present day.Finally – Parking and parking spaces.While driving the New Fiat Doblo Maxi this week I was parking in one of the many carparks in Letterkenny, the only parking space available was between these two cars, and the thought cross my mind was how much space was available when I went to get out.On further investigation I noticed that the two cars were parked over four parking spaces, I have to say that some of these parking spaces are so small now that its impossible to park in the space provide to get out of you car with out hitting the bodywork of the car beside you.I just though of taking a photo of the three cars in the spaces before I left. When I arrived back one of the cars had moved off and my Fiat look as if it was in no mans land. I know I am not the greatest parker in the world but I think that the theory of what is consider a decent parking space and the number of parking spaces someone can cram into a plot of land has nothing to do with a car and its passengers that have to get in and out of it, when its jammed into the space provided. Rant over.
