Indonesia arrests US fraud fugitive on local sex charges

first_imgFrom April 2014 through December 2019 the group attracted unsuspecting investors using fraudulent earnings purported to come from the network’s mining pool, according to prosecutors.It was not immediately clear if US authorities would seek Medlin’s extradition in the cryptocurrrency case.”We are still waiting for a request from the US Embassy,” Jakarta police’s special investigation director Roma Hutajulu said Tuesday. The US embassy did not immediately reply to requests for comment. An American fugitive wanted at home in connection with a $700 million cryptocurrency scam has been arrested in Jakarta on sex charges, Indonesian authorities said Tuesday.Russ Medlin, who entered the Southeast Asian nation on a tourist visa last year, was nabbed in the capital Monday after three teenage girls alleged he paid to have sex with them, police said.If convicted under Indonesia’s child protection laws, Medlin could face up to 15 years in prison, police said, adding that they confiscated more than $20,000 in cash from the suspect.  “After the arrest, we checked his identity,” Jakarta police spokesman Yusri Yunus told reporters on Tuesday, adding Medlin was sought by foreign law enforcement agencies.According to the Nevada State sex offender public website, a Russ Albert Medlin was listed as a “non compliant” tier-two offender — the second most serious — with a Las Vegas address.In December, the US Justice Department said three men had been arrested in an alleged fraud that raised $722 million from investors lured by fake bitcoin mining earnings.Prosecutors in the United States allege Medlin headed the “BitClub Network,” which took money from investors in a “high-tech Ponzi scheme”.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Emmanuel Adebayor is still trolling Arsenal fans on Man City celebration anniversary

first_img Comment Emmanuel Adebayor is still trolling Arsenal fans on Man City celebration anniversary 1 min. story Skip PLAY Top articles Rio Ferdinand tells Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop struggling Coming Next Manchester United captain Harry Maguire The wild celebration unsurprisingly enraged the traveling fans and most have still not forgiven the 35-year-old.If any were feeling forgiving towards Adebayor, they may have changed their mind after the forward posted a picture of the celebration on Instagram on the 10 year anniversary of the event.Predictably the post drew plenty of abuse from Arsenal fans, with one suggesting the celebration was the greatest achievement of his career, to which Adebayor replied: ‘Money, cars, bank account, that’s what I came to Europe for.’After the match in 2009, Adebayor told the Sun: ‘I scored and wanted to show people it is not a good idea to abuse me. I really didn’t understand it at all. I was running on pure emotion and when you take emotion out of football we are going to have a big problem.‘People say I had time to think about because I ran the length of the pitch but that is not true. I was abused all match and scored a goal I knew would win the game for us. Ten seconds is nothing – your emotion is going to last a lot longer than that.’More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man CityAdebayor always felt the abuse from Arsenal fans was unjustified, explaining that it was Gunners boss Arsene Wenger who wanted to sell him rather than him pushing for a move.‘There is only so much abuse a man can take until he reaches breaking point. I could not understand some of the Arsenal players being disrespectful towards me.‘I was being abused by people who six months ago were singing my name. The abuse was for no reason. It wasn’t my fault I left, it was Arsene who wanted to accept the offer for me. They were all clapping Kolo but they were shouting personal abuse at me before the match had even kicked off.‘People talk about us as being football players and the money we earn, but just because we are fortunate it does not mean we need to take abuse. If you were to abuse a man in the street for over an hour he would react and it would be a worse reaction than a goal celebration.’Adebayor signed for Turkish side Kayserispor this summer on a one-year contract.MORE: Kieran Tierney nutmegs Shkodran Mustafi on return to full training for ArsenalMORE: Dani Ceballos reveals Unai Emery wants him to take charge in midfield for Arsenal Full Screen About Connatix V67539 Read More Read More Read Morecenter_img Advertisement Read More 1/1 Skip Ad by Metro Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE Read More Advertisement Metro Sport ReporterFriday 13 Sep 2019 7:58 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link325Shares Video Settings Emmanuel Adebayor is still winding up Arsenal fans (Picture: Getty Images)Emmanuel Adebayor has no intention of trying to win over Arsenal fans, as he is still winding them up 10 years on from his infamous goal celebration for Manchester City against the Gunners.Adebayor left Arsenal for City in July 2009 after four seasons with the north London side, having scored 62 goals for the club.Gunners fans were not happy with the striker joining a Premier League rival and let him know that with a fierce reception when Arsenal traveled to the Etihad in September ’09.The Togo international scored City’s third in a 4-2 victory and ran the length of the field to celebrate in front of the Arsenal supporters.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENT SPONSORED / last_img read more

Cash flow a positive for this dwelling double up

first_imgThe two homes at 151 Orange Grove Rd, Coopers Plains sold for $1.1 million at auctionA CRACKING rental income had three registered bidders vying for two homes on one title in Coopers Plains.The winner paid $1.1 million for 151 Orange Grove Rd, which should boost their income by $2300 per week, said LJ Hooker Sunnybank agent Emily Xiong.“The rental income pretty much covers the home loans,” Miss Xiong said.CoreLogic records show the seller bought the original three-bedroom home on its 809sq m block for $560,000 in April 2014.More from newsCrowd expected as mega estate goes under the hammer7 Aug 2020Hard work, resourcefulness and $17k bring old Ipswich home back to life20 Apr 2020A renovation of the older house and the addition of a contemporary seven-bedroom, seven-ensuite dwelling just prior to sale drove the $1 million-plus result.Miss Xiong said although the property was close to Griffith University, it didn’t have council approval for student accommodation and would most likely rent to two or three separate families. Bidders who missed out have a second chance with the agent set to list another two-home holding this week.Miss Xiong said buyer demand for multiple incomes was growing.“When I had my first one (listing), people didn’t understand and were quite scared to buy this kind of property,” she said. “At the moment they understand this type of property brings them a good income.”Miss Xiong said there were more opportunities for development in the suburb and demand for the end product was increasing, but small developers needed to carefully assess each property’s potential.“Subdivision is better than two-on-one,” she said.last_img read more

Disaster minister calls on NEPO to help protect lives during disasters

first_img Sharing is caring! Tweet LocalNews Disaster minister calls on NEPO to help protect lives during disasters by: – June 8, 2011 34 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Share Share Hon. Charles SavarinMinister responsible for Natural Disasters Charles Savarin says it is the responsibility of the National Emergency Planning Organization and its sub committees to help in protecting the lives of people during a disaster.Savarin told a recent national emergency planning and disaster meeting in Jimmit that it is imperative that the organization functions effectively and at all times.“From my point of view, we can never be prepared that you can have such a state of readiness that nothing can happen to you. What we can do is reduce the impact,” he said.       According to Savarin very simple measures can avoid hazards from turning into disaster.“You remember we lost the Canefield airport for about three or four months and that was merely because a ravine was blocked by old fridges which had floated down the ravine, got stuck and water found another part and cut the runway in two. If culverts were cleared, the water would have flowed safely underneath the runway and the disaster would have been prevented,” he said.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Froome survives French coup attempt to retain Tour lead

first_imgLE-PUY-EN-VELAY, France (Reuters) – Chris Froome survived an attempted coup by Romain Bardet’s AG2R-La Mondiale team in a treacherous, hectic 15th stage to retain the Tour de France overall leader’s yellow jersey on Sunday.Dutchman Bauke Mollema, the strongest and smartest of the breakaway riders, who had three top 10 finishes on the Tour, won the 189.5-km stage from Laissac-Severac L’Eglise but the action was elsewhere.Defending champion Froome was first caught at the end of a split caused by French team AG2R-La Mondiale, who continued to press the pedals when the race leader suffered a mechanical problem shortly before the key climb of the day.The Team Sky leader kept his cool, however, and powered his way back to stay on top of the general classification with an 18-second advantage over Italian Fabio Aru.“It was a stressful moment. I thought I might not get back to the front,” said Froome, who takes the yellow jersey into Monday’s rest day.“I’m just grateful I survived today. Tomorrow is a rest day so I will regain some energy and hopefully be fresh for the third week.”Bardet, who enjoyed huge crowd support in his home region in the Massif Central, while Froome was booed at one point, stays third 23 seconds off the pace. Colombian Rigoberto Uran is fourth six seconds further back.last_img read more

Syracuse wings Macartney, Schoonmaker look to continue improvement against Cornell

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 8, 2014 at 1:50 am Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse As Syracuse’s faceoff play has swelled and swooned this season, Chris Daddio has been placed under a microscope. When the team is successful at the faceoff X and turns possessions into goals, the senior specialist is praised. When the Orange fails — which has been the case for much of the season and the source of SU’s three-game losing streak to start conference play — Daddio takes the brunt of the blame.But he isn’t the only player taking to the circle for each draw. “Everyone likes to look at (Daddio) when we struggle,” said redshirt junior long-stick midfielder Peter Macartney. “But we look at it as a group effort to win each faceoff. Us wings have a big responsibility and have to do our part, too.”No. 7 Syracuse (6-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) has bettered its play at the faceoff X in recent games, and stronger wing play is at the center of that. Macartney and redshirt junior midfielder Henry Schoonmaker have headed a group — also including freshman long-stick midfielder Scott Firman, junior midfielder Mike Messina and freshman midfielder Sergio Salcido — looking to carry its improved play into the Orange’s road bout with No. 6 Cornell (9-1, 3-1 Ivy League) at 7 p.m. Tuesday. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU head coach John Desko has utilized Macartney on the wing all season, and inserted Schoonmaker alongside him a few weeks ago. They both bring physicality and high lacrosse IQ to the circle, and are shaping into a reliable pair at just the right time.“Every possession is huge for us,” Schoonmaker said. “We have a pretty effective offense, so if we can get the ball as the wings it’s just an extra possession and an extra goal for us.”The aftermath of a faceoff is, at times, a free-for-all, and Schoonmaker and Macartney each smiled when talking about playing physical in the circle.Macartney said he loves mixing it up, alluding to his past experience as a left wing in hockey. The broad-shouldered Schoonmaker didn’t liken his aggressive play to his one year of competitive football as a freshman at Lincoln (Ore.) High School, but was equally excited at the thought of going toe-to-toe for a contested ground ball.“It’s fun to get in there, get a little physical and make your presence known,” Schoonmaker said. But there is also a technical side of wing play that requires chemistry and communication, which Schoonmaker and Macartney certainly don’t lack. They’re both from out West, are also roommates and collectively zeroed in on the Orange’s wing play after it fell short in a 21-7 loss to Duke on March 23.In SU’s next game against Notre Dame, a combined effort from Daddio and the wings resulted in 15-of-24 wins at the X.Macartney scooped up a team-high six ground balls, and Schoonmaker collected three in the fourth quarter to help the Orange to the 11-10 win, its first ACC victory of the season. “My wings helped me a lot,” Daddio said after the win. “I wasn’t winning them clean but I was staying down on the ball and fighting and Macartney, (Schoonmaker) and all the other wings were a big help, so it came together.”Desko said on Monday that while the wings have improved, he wishes they had a better outing in the team’s 10-8 win over Binghamton on Wednesday. But if the unit reverts back to the way it played against the Fighting Irish, it could help the team to a big nonconference win in Ithaca.Cornell suffered its first loss of the season to Harvard on Saturday, and secured just 7-of-27 faceoffs while collecting 18-of-27 ground balls in the second half in which the Big Red only attempted six shots. Cornell’s struggle for possession is the same problem Syracuse has toiled with all year, and SU’s wing play will be as pivotal as it’s been all season.Said Macartney: “When we can get into a groove, winning faceoffs and us getting ground balls, we can take the other team out of it. “That’s when we can really affect the game.” Commentslast_img read more
