I am not prepared to deal with juveniles unless they are charged with murder, jointly charged with an adult, as an adult or with treason”.She also urged lawyers to “stand their ground in the Magistrate Court” and insist that matters involving juveniles are dealt with by a magistrate.She also highlighted the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Dominica is a signatory to noting that it advocates for the protection of children’s rights, and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential.The January 2012 Criminal Assizes officially closed after completing two cases, aborting two and traversing a number of cases to the May Criminal Assizes.Justice Stephenson-Brooks also noted with “regret” the number of matters which had to be traversed through no fault of the Court.The two completed cases were the State verses Manuela Williams, Loretta Xavier and Herbert Xavier who each received a 15 year sentence after they were found guilty of murdering their brother Harrison Williams at Soufriere in 2010 and Kenrick Tyson who received a life sentence after being found guilty of murdering Cecil James in Concord in 2009.Justice Stephenson-Brooks also announced that she is in the process of preparing a “white paper” which she will present to media practitioners on the “do’s and don’t’s of court reporting”.She explained her reason for creating such a document is to motivate “responsible and accurate” media reporting on the island.The May Criminal Assizes is scheduled to commence on May 8th, 2012.Dominica Vibes News
Loading… Kevin de Bruyne says his already incredible assist numbers would go up even further if he could play with Cristiano Ronaldo. De Bruyne says he could get even better playing with Ronaldo Manchester City’s Belgian star has already laid on 16 goals for his teammates this season, as he has taken his game to a level that he sees as even more “complete” as he strives to improve. In an interview with Jamie Redknapp on Sky Sports’ ‘The Football Show’, it was put to the Belgian that he would thrive when paired in a fantasy midfield with the likes of Barcelona icons Andres Iniesta and Xavi, but he preferred to focus further forward. Discussing potential strikers he’d love to play with, he said: “Maybe somebody like Thierry Henry, or even somebody like Cristiano. “For me, a creative player, he’s going to be there. “I’m somebody who’s quick, who can go deep, that helps me a lot. “You can play with magnificent midfielders, but strikers, for what I do, are probably the main importance. “So I would say maybe Cristiano, or Thierry Henry.” He added that Ronaldo would be great for his assist record. “I could probably put it [a cross] about three metres high and he’s still going to get it anyway!” he said. “So that’s going to make my assists go up!” De Bruyne added that he feels he is currently on top form. “It’s difficult to comment on form, but I’m the most complete player now,” he said. “In every aspect of the game now I feel really comfortable. At Wolfsburg, I did incredibly well, but I was more up and down. Ronaldo would get even more assists out of De Bruyne Read Also: Arsenal to miss CL spot as UEFA opt for points system if season cut short “But the past three seasons, maybe a little less last season, I’m happy as I’m playing at a constant level. “From the first game against West Ham to the last against Real Madrid, I’ve played really well. “That makes it satisfying that I can be consistently good at a good enough level to perform.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentWhat Is A Black Hole In Simple Terms?What Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?Which Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This Year6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth6 Extreme Facts About HurricanesWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.
