Remanded: Shondel Watson covers her face as she is escorted from the courtroomAn emotional 26-year-old Shondel Watson appeared before Principal Magistrate Faith McGusty on Friday, charged for trafficking a quantity of marijuana into the Camp Street Prison.The prison officer of C Field Sophia, Greater Georgetown, denied the charge which stated that on June 27, 2019, at Camp Street Prison, Georgetown, she had in her possession 314 grams of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.Prosecutor Seon Blackman informed the court that on the day in question, about 08:20h, Watson was observed acting in a suspicious manner by a Police Officer, who later conducted a search and discovered a parcel in the defendant’s skirt waist.Another search on Watson’s handbag unearthed two other parcels of marijuana concealed in a bowl.In an effort to explain herself, Watson in tears told the court that the prosecution’s facts are far from the truth. The woman explained that when she arrived at the prison, she was searched before being allowed into the premises. The court heard that Watson lodged her handbag with a security guard and visited the washroom. However, upon her return, she was approached by two officers who then requested to conduct a search on her belongings.As the search was in process, Watson said, a police officer then informed her that the illegal drug was found hidden in her skirt waist. Nevertheless, the defendant maintained her innocence as she claimed that there was no bowl in her bag.Prosecutor Blackman objected to bail on the grounds that she had knowledge, control and possession of the illegal substance.Magistrate McGusty, after listening to the facts and the defendant’s explanation, remanded the woman to prison. The case will continue on July 2, 2019.
Virat Kohli scored yet another hundred in a successful run chase which didn’t really come as a surprise to anybody as he has been doing it for so long now but in a bizarre coincidence, it was for the third time in consecutive years that the Indian captain crossed triple figures on the same date i.e January 15.Kohli posted his 39th ODI century, his 24th in a second innings and his sixth against Australia, to lead a perfectly measured run chase which saw India surpass Australia’s total of 298-9 with four balls to spare on Tuesday.The last two years also saw Kohli scoring his first international hundred of the year on the exact same date.In 2017, Kohli had led India to a three-wicket win over England in the first ODI of the three-match series on January 15.Chasing a mammoth target of 351 for victory, Kohli paired with Kedar Jadhav to add 200 runs for the fifth wicket as India took 48.1 overs to win the match.Do Not Miss: Meet Chahal TV’s debutant – Captain @imVkohliIn our fun segment, we get the Indian captain talking about his 39th ODI ton, the @msdhoni finish & a lot more – by @RajalAroraFull Video Link https://t.co/Am0NCYFqs7 pic.twitter.com/GPtmNjfOCCBCCI (@BCCI) January 15, 2019Kohli had top-scored in that match with 122 runs while Jadhav made 120 as India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. The hosts went on to win the series after beating England in the second match by 15 runs while the Eoin Morgan-led side registered a consolation win in the third ODI.advertisementA year later, Kohli travelled to South Africa with the Indian team on his first big overseas assignment as India captain for a three-match Test series.He failed to get going in the first Test in Cape Town which India lost by 72 runs but bounced back in the second Test with 153 runs on the third day of the second Test, which again was his first hundred of the year and came on January 15.But the failure of the other batsmen in the team let India down as they lost the match by 135 runs to concede a 0-2 lead in the three-match series. India fought hard in the third and final Test, winning by 63 runs on a treacherous Johannesburg pitch to register a famous win on South African soil.Then on Tuesday (January 15, 2019), Kohli top-scored with 104 runs as India chased down a challenging total at the Adelaide Oval.Watch the full highlights from another ODI masterclass by Virat Kohli – his 39th(!) ODI hundred! pic.twitter.com/L2d2fciApmcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 16, 2019He put on 82 in 13 overs in a critical partnership for the fourth wicket with MS Dhoni (55 not out), which steered India at a cautious pace towards a winning total but he was out at a critical moment, with his team still needing 57 from 38 balls.Former captain Dhoni played a subdued role in support of his successor Kohli as two players with the joint experience of more than 550 ODIs steadily chipped away at Australia’s total.With Kohli’s untimely dismissal, Dhoni took up the chase and carried India to a victory which will see the series decided on Friday in the third one-day international at Melbourne.Also Read | MS Dhoni talks a lot while batting and that helps: Virat KohliAlso Read | Virat Kohli will score 100 international hundreds if he stays fit: Mohammed AzharuddinAlso Read | Justin Langer in awe of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni after India win Adelaide ODIAlso Read | Virat Kohli scores 39th ODI hundred: Shane Warne leads tributes for the King read more
Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 04 Mar 2016 – There may be an appeal by the Deputy Premier to the decision of the Claims and Objections hearing not to hear, what she contends is a valid claim which impacts the voter list in the next General Elections. The Member of Parliament for Leeward, Akierra Missick said while the law does say she cannot make a claim or objection unless she is resident in the area for which the challenge is being brought, she believes her issue is valid and that it is the duty of the Election supervisor to ensure, fair and free elections in the TCI. It seems the new boundaries, according to the claim, caused voters to be placed in the incorrect electoral district in a few instances. Chairman of the PDM Doug Parnell said the claim or objection is very easily brought by someone of the constituency; it is what the PNP could have done, he said. Nonetheless, DP Missick said if the Elections Supervisor ultimately places those voters who are in the wrong constituency in the right one, then there will be no need for an appeal.
