Schiappacasse could leave Famalicao to go to Peñarol

first_imgSchiappacasse could shortly put an end to his Portuguese adventure. According to Portuguese media, the Portuguese Famalicao will free you. The Uruguayan striker arrived last summer from Atlético on loan and has not set. He has barely played 90 minutes divided into four games. Very little for what was expected. At 20 years of age, having been habitual in the lists of the lower categories of the Uruguayan national team, he has not been summoned to dispute with the celestial the pre-Olympic. It is the third assignment of Schiappacasse since reaching the lower categories of Atlético. He went through the Ray Majadahonda and the Parma. But his future could go back to his country. For some days in Uruguay it has been speculated with Peñarol’s interest in the striker. The footballer himself has been loved. A few days ago he said in ‘I want Soccer’ of Sport890 his love for the aurinegro club. “I am a fan of Peñarol, it is the club of my loves, and since I was a kid I went to the court, but there is nothing concrete; I am physically well although I have not had the opportunities I wanted,” he explained. Famalicao would be about to formalize his departure and Peñarol is interested. There it would coincide with Diego Forlán, exatlético, that has been done recently with the controls of the bench of the Uruguayan club. Schiappacasse became habitual in the training sessions of Simeone, although he did not get to debut with the first team.last_img read more

Evicted Robb Street vendors to return today

first_img– mull legal action against M&CC over spoilt perishables One day after they were evicted without notice, cash crop vendors plying their trade on Robb Street, Georgetown – between Alexander and Bourda Streets – will return to the vending area as of today, following a meeting with Town Clerk Royston King, on Wednesday.Evicted vendors on Tuesday afternoonKing, however, threatened the vendors that should they fail to keep the area clean; a permanent ban will be imposed.“In other words, there would be no going back, you have to keep the place clean,” King warned as he explained that it was the vendor’s failure to maintain the sanitation of the area that led to the eviction.However, the vendors said that their garbage compactor, which City Hall had in the vicinity, was removed by the municipality. With no place to dump the garbage, the vendors said after cleaning the area, they are forced to pile the garbage in one location with the hope that the Council will remove it.Sanitation feeFurther, they questioned King’s claims, arguing that shortly after the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) took office in May 2015, they were told by City Constables that they have to pool money to help clean up the city and ever since they are required to either pay $1000 monthly as sanitation fee to clean the area or assist with the cleaning, which they said they have been adhering to.“When the new Government go in power last year, they tell we that we have to donate money to clean the city up and me and the people them who selling deh put together and give them forty something thousand dollars… we give wan constable and she tek it inside the constabulary,” one vendor stated, adding that they continue to pay the $1000 monthly.When questioned if receipts are issued, the vendor answered in the negative, stating that, “them constables does come round with a book and does write down we name and the money abee give them, they add am up and tek it to the constab.”However, People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Councillor on the City Council, Bishram Kuppen, said he was alarmed at this revelation, since the revenue department of the M&CC is the only body authorised to collect monies on behalf of the Council and for all revenues collected, a receipt must be issued.ProtestMeanwhile, the vendors protested at the Communities Ministry in Kingston, Georgetown, with placards bearing slogans such as, “Royston King must go” and “we need justice”.In their chants, the protesters expressed complete dissatisfaction at the actions of the Town Clerk. “Weh we gon go? How we gon mek a living? This injustice got to stop!” one vendor asserted.However, King was unmoved, stating that not even the GMVU could influence a decision made by the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) to stop vending.Legal actionThe merchants, many of whom travelled from as far as Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice), have complained about millions in losses over the past two days due to spoilage of their produce and are seeking legal advice on a possible lawsuit against the M&CC to recover the revenue they lost.They are contending that the municipality failed to give them any notice of the eviction and therefore is responsible for their loss.“We lose a lot because of the Council, so yes we are going to take legal action because we still have to pay the farmers. We have family, I have children to send to school and I live in a renting house… they didn’t tell we in advance that we can’t sell,” one retail vendor stated.Another man stated that he is fed up with the way City Hall treats vendors and is also backing his colleagues with any legal challenge.“They must take responsibility and pay for we goods which spoil. Royston King like he doesn’t like vendors, so he punishing we all them time, first Stabroek now here. We gon sue them. Somebody gotta pay for our goods, look how we lose money and them don’t care, none of them,” another irate woman stated.Meanwhile, a group of the affected vendors met with a delegation from the Leader of the Opposition’s Office to voice their frustration about the removal, among other issues.“The Office of the Leader of the Opposition notes that once again the Mayor and Town Clerk are taking bread out of peoples’ mouths, creating greater hardships and increasing the cost of living for all the citizens, not only in Georgetown, but across the country,” a statement from the Opposition Leader’s Office said.Speaking with this newspaper after the meeting, one vendor said while President David Granger is on record urging persons to become entrepreneurs, because of his Government’s inability to provide jobs for the thousands of unemployed persons, City Hall, controlled by Granger’s APNU/AFC coalition, is trying to destroy small businesses, referring to City Hall’s eviction.“I saw the President on TV talking about we should become our own entrepreneurs, but on the other hand, look at what they are doing here to us. If we can’t sell and make an honest living, then our only options are to go hungry, thief or beg,” the man stated. (Edward Layne)last_img read more
