Limerick on the 7th February 2019.Gardaí received a report of a possible bogus charity collection where people were calling to houses in the Annacotty area alleging they were raising money by collecting clothing. Gardaí carried out a patrol of the area and 2 men were arrested, brought to Mayorstone Park Garda Station and detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984. They have since been released and a file will be prepared for the DPP.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking at Henry Street Garda Station, Sgt Ber Leetch said ‘The community in Annacotty should be commended for this. Someone obviously didn’t think this was a genuine charity and phoned it in, which is exactly what we want to see. No genuine business or charity will mind you carrying out your own enquiries or calling An Garda Síochána. If a person calls to your door offering you professional trade services, selling goods or collecting for a charity and you are worried they are not bona fide, tell the caller that you never deal with people who ‘cold call’ to your door. Ask for a brochure or documentation so you can carry out checks and verify their credibility. We always want to hear if there are people in the area who may be offering goods or services that are not genuine so don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and call us ’ NewsCrime & CourtTwo men arrested linked to bogus charity collection in LimerickBy Staff Reporter – February 8, 2019 2262 Email WhatsApp

My lawyers will write to Mr Diack to ask him to explain the allegations of Mr Cabral who wrongly claims in his testimony that Mr Diack could secure my vote.July 5, 2019 Share on Messenger Share on Twitter news Share on LinkedIn Topics Share on WhatsApp The International Olympic Committee is to investigate allegations that nine of its members – including the pole vaulter Sergey Bubka and the Olympic swimming champion Alexander Popov – were bribed to vote for Rio’s 2016 Olympic Games bid.The claims were made by the former governor of Rio de Janeiro Sérgio Cabral, who told a court he had paid $2m (£1.59m) to Lamine Diack, the former president of athletics’ governing body, the IAAF, to buy votes.Cabral said the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee, Arthur Nuzman, had assured him the scheme would work because Diack had a history of such behaviour.“I said, Nuzman, what are our guarantees here? And he said, ‘traditionally he sells four, five, six votes. There is a risk that we don’t get through to the second round.’”Cabral, who has been sentenced to almost 200 years in jail for his part in a series of corruption scandals, said Diack guaranteed up to six votes for $1.5m and then came back and offered more if he was paid an extra $500,000. Cabral said he authorised the payment. “We did it,” Cabral said.The French authorities have already charged the former athlete Frankie Fredericks in connection with the vote-buying scheme, as part of a wide investigation into Diack and his son, Papa Massata Diack, the disgraced former marketing agent for the IAAF. Last month the Diacks were also charged with money laundering and corruption. “I totally reject these stupid allegations, especially coming from somebody that I have never met neither discussed,” Papa Massata Diack told the Guardian via email. “I think he is trying to make a deal with the prosecutors to reduce his sanction to 70 years in prison.”An IOC spokesperson said its chief ethics and compliance officer had already began an investigation. “The IOC has turned the page with regard to good governance and in particular the procedure of the election of host cities,” he added.Diack resigned as an honorary IOC member in November 2015, a day after he was suspended following the launch of a French investigation into corruption and money-laundering. Nuzman’s IOC membership was suspended in October 2017 following his arrest in Brazil on corruption charges. He is fighting the charges.Bubka has rejected what he calls “all the false claims” made by Cabral and claimed Diack never contacted him about his vote for the 2016 hosts. Popov said he was “extremely surprised at the appearance of such information with the illegal use of my name” and promised to cooperate with the IOC inquiry. The Diacks and Fredericks have also previously denied any wrongdoing. Sport politics
