Colombian Man Extradited to Ecuador for Money Laundering

first_img A Colombian man was extradited by his country to Quito, where he will serve a 12-year prison sentence for the crime of money laundering, the Ecuadorean Ministry of Interior announced on July 15. In February 2008, the foreign national identified as 31-year-old Andrés P.C., was sentenced when he was unable to justify the origins of his properties in Ecuador, which were seized by authorities, the institution said in a statement. “These properties were transferred by his father, Hernán P. C., who is currently detained in a U.S. prison for drug trafficking charges. When Andrés P. heard about his father’s arrest, he fled the country,” he added. He was detained in June 2012 in Colombia, where the courts accused him for money laundering and authorized his extradition last February. In August 2006, Ecuador disrupted an organization aimed at money laundering, headed by Hernán P. C. The money came from Panamanian companies, according to the Ministry. After this operation, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Panama and the United States started legal actions against the organization. By Dialogo July 16, 2013last_img read more

Cricket News BCCI curator overwaters pitch, leaves before start of Delhi-Madhya Pradesh Ranji match

first_imgNew Delhi: BCCI’s North Zone curator Sunil Chauhan overwatered the Feroz Shah Kotla pitch and then, breaching protocol, left the venue before the start of Delhi-Madhya Pradesh Ranji Trophy match on Saturday, his indiscretion leading to a delay of two and half hours. Despite perfect weather conditions, the match began in the second session. While the hosts reduced MP to 132 for nine courtesy left-arm spinner Vikas Mishra’s 6/41 in 18 overs, the delay in proceedings could land the Himachal Pradesh curator in trouble.Off-spinner Shivam Sharma got 3/48 on a pitch where the ball kept low, but there was some turn on offer, with the odd ball taking off from the spot. As per BCCI rules, the neutral curators are sent to prepare pitches so that home teams cannot take any advantage, and they are only supposed to leave after lunch on the first day, when local curator takes charge.On Saturday, much to the dismay of the Delhi team, match referee Daniel Manohar (former Hyderabad batsman) and the two umpires Virender Sharma and Sanjay Hazare found out that the pitch was wet and under no circumstances could start the game as scheduled at 9.30 am.It was then realised that the Dharamsala-based curator Chauhan, who was in charge of preparing the strip, had watered it the previous evening.”Under Sunil Chauhan’s instructions, the pitch was watered on Friday evening. He himself is from Dharamsala and knows the weather conditions in Northern India inside out. The pitch was watered around 4 pm and naturally it was cold and moist with little sunshine,” a senior DDCA official, privy to the development, told PTI.When the match officials came to the ground in the morning, as per BCCI rules, Chauhan was supposed to be present for the handover of the ground to the match referee. He was nowhere to be seen, though.”Chauhan had to stay back till first-day lunch which is the common rule for all neutral curator before the local curator takes over. He left and then our curator Ankit Datta had to get the ground ready along with outsourced groundsmen as the regular groundsmen have gone on strike,” the official said.Chauhan couldn’t be reached for comment. However, BCCI GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim admitted that the situation could have been avoided and he has sought a report from Chauhan.”I agree that what happened at the Kotla today shouldn’t have happened but I believe Mr Chauhan must have had some compelling reasons to have left early. He took a 10 am flight from Delhi. Normally, he has never done that, so I would like to believe that there is some reason behind it. We will find out,” Karim told PTI.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
