first_imgThe National Crime Agency (NCA) has completed one of its most spectacular proceeds of crime coups after a family behind a collapsed holiday home business agreed to return property and cars worth £8.1 million to the exchequer.This includes a villa in the Canary Islands and 16 commercial and residential properties in and around Bath plus a luxury Range Rover.As The Negotiator reported last month, the Davies family’s assets were recently frozen by a court but at the time the legal action was thought to be linked to the collapse of their business, which both rented and sold holiday homes at sites in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridge.The four members of the family, who are Shane and Rhianna Davies, mother Sheila and sister Tracey, have agreed to surrender the assets after conceding that they derived from the ‘proceeds of unlawful conduct’.Their huge property portfolio, which generated an income of approximately £400,000 a year, was acquired between 1998 and 2007 with funds derived from mortgage fraud and the sale of drugs, the NCA says.JacuzziIt included a seven-bedroom converted barn with an indoor jacuzzi and swimming pool and an 18th century Georgian townhouse (both pictured, above).“It is vital to the UK’s economic wellbeing that assets are held legitimately, and the NCA is determined to recover property acquired through the proceeds of serious and organised crime,” says Andy Lewis, the NCA’s Head of Asset Denial, who worked closely with Avon & Somerset Police on the case.NCA proceeds of crime National Crime Agency November 5, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgYour daily outdoor news bulletin for September 30th, the day Wyoming became the first state to give women the vote, proving that in the land of no people, the woman is king:Blue Ridge Parkway to Stay OpenWith a U.S. government shutdown looming, and with Congress still not doing anything about it, federal agencies are attempting to go about their business like nothing is wrong while simultaneously going about their business like there is a class 5 hurricane bearing down on them. One such agency is the National Park Service which could affect Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Shenandoah National Park, and the Blue Ridge Parkway – of course there will be other casualties in the park system but those are the big fish so to speak. All inquiries into the matter are being deflected to the Department of the Interior, but a shutdown now could have a huge economic effect on not only the parks in question, but also the surrounding communities given this is the most popular time for all three. It is leaf peeping season after all. Officials with the Blue Ridge Parkway, while considering closing the 400+ mile road earlier in the week, now say the BRP will stay open through a shutdown although all campsites, historical sites, visitors centers, etc. will be closed.For a full report, and an interesting story on what Arizona tried to do with the Grand Canyon during the 1995 shutdown, see this National Parks Traveler story.National Registry of Stolen Bikes…MaybeWhen you have your bike stolen, there are many emotions that run through you. Maybe you feel betrayal that your privacy was violated, maybe you feel angry someone stole your whip, maybe you feel frustrated the police are not really able to do anything for you. Well, a group in Chicago is working on that last one. Through a site called Bike Index, a group of advocates is hoping to provide riders a more comprehensive way to track down their stolen bike. Many cities and communities already have bike registry services, but they usually involve paperwork and a trip to the police station, and they are kept private. Bike Index wants to streamline the process by allowing users to register their bikes online using the bikes serial number. With more access and public info, and more bikes registered, the operation will not only help people track down their bikes when they get stolen, but discourage future thefts. The service is only available in Chicago at this time, but the founders hope to expand nationwide.Check out the story on Fastcoexist.com and their Kickstarter campaign.Annapolis HonoredThe brackish community of Annapolis, Maryland is the latest community to receive an honor from the National Wildlife Federation. This week, the city was designated a National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat, becoming the 71st Community Wildlife Habitat in the nation, and second in Maryland. It seems as though the honor is the cumulative capstone in Annapolis’s efforts to green up their city: “A Community Wildlife Habitat project creates multiple habitat areas in backyards, schoolyards, corporate properties, community gardens, parkland and other spaces.”Click here for more details via the Baltimore News Journal.last_img read more

first_imgBelgium will tighten COVID-19 containment measures on July 25 after a rise in infections, Prime Minister Sophie Wilmes said, requiring the use of face masks in crowded outdoor public spaces and tracing measures at restaurants and bars.The home to the headquarters of the European Union and NATO imposed a lockdown on March 18 in an effort to contain the outbreak, which has claimed 9,808 lives in a country that has one of the world’s highest fatality rates per capita.The government later eased the lockdown and had planned to loosen restrictions further on Thursday, but a series of localized outbreaks and a 91% spike in nationwide infections last week forced an about-turn. “The latest figures should not throw us into panic but have to be taken seriously,” Wilmes told a news conference on Thursday.Under the new measures, Belgians will have to wear a mask in public, including at outdoor markets, shopping streets and other crowded sites.Tighter measures will also be imposed on bars and restaurants, where masks will become compulsory for those not seated. Customers will also have to leave their contact details to facilitate tracing in case of localized outbreaks. Night shops will have to close by 10 pm.Local authorities could also restore full lockdowns on communities if epidemiological data warrants them.However, the government stopped short of imposing stricter restrictions, such as checks on all travellers returning from abroad or shortening opening hours for bars and restaurants.Belgians will continue to be allowed to meet as many as 15 friends a week after the government decided against cutting the number to 10, Wilmes said.An easing of restrictions could be announced on Sept. 1, Wilmes said, potentially allowing a resumption of trade fairs.Topics :last_img read more

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, Bishop of Roseau His Lordship Gabriel Malzaire and Tourism Minister Ian Douglas will be among several people who will hike segment thirteen of the much talked about Waitukubuli National Trail on Monday May 7, 2012.The activity dubbed- “Hike with the Clergy” will be the first for Dominica and will be held primarily to raise funds for a major conference of the diocesan priests of the province of Castries to be held in Dominica in January 2013.The hike which is being done in collaboration with the Waitukubuli National Trail is considered to be a relatively easy one. The hike will begin in the village of Penville and will culminate in Capuchin.Bishop of Roseau Gabriel MalzaireParish Priest of Portsmouth Fr. Herman Sharplis has been charged with the responsibility of coordinating the hike. He explained that people interested in participating in the hike should gather in Penville before 7:00 a.m.“The hike will be a three and a half hour walk. People are asked to register in the various parishes. We are expecting people to come from all over Dominica”.People interested in the hike will be asked to pay a registration fee of ten E.C dollars which will go towards Dominica’s hosting of the priest conference next year. The hike coordinator has encouraged Dominicans to cease the opportunity to participate in the hike, as the activity will seek to promote wellness and healthy living.“There is a lot of talk about how big people have gotten, so we see this as an opportunity to encourage our people to come out and walk more”.Sharplis explained further that the hike will also be an opportunity for Dominicans to discover and appreciate the island’s natural beauty.Tourism Minister Ian Douglas“We need to take ownership of the trail. Why should people come from overseas and speak so highly of our trail and we don’t take advantage of it ourselves? The scenery on the trail is breathtaking and all who can, should take advantage of this opportunity”.Sharplis added that the walk will end with a number of family fun activities.“We are going to have talks from various officials and then we will have sporting activities and various performances. I want to assure Dominicans that it is going to be a day of tremendous socializing. We really want the Dominican public to come out in large numbers”.By: Tarnia GreenGovernment Information Servicelast_img read more

first_img ‘He fits very well in the team and we have to play with his qualities. ‘Kelechi is a very good striker and we can use him for the rest of the season.’ Vardy has missed only two league matches this term, against West Ham and Newcastle, and will undoubtedly be missed, despite Iheanacho’s impressive cameos during the campaign. Rodgers will make significant changes for tomorrow’s/Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Brentford, with his key men given a breather for Tuesday’s winner-takes-all clash at Villa Park, for a place in the Final.
