first_img(Source:klix.ba) Bosnia and Herzegovina national football team won against Andorra last night, with a score 3: 0.Edin Džeko scored all three goals, and Senad Lulić provided all three assists. Dragons finally got their UEFA EURO 2016 target completed after the fifth attempt.It will stay registered that the new coach, Mehmed Baždarević, debut victory on the bench of national team.Otherwise, the hosts started the game cautiously, but extremely aggressive. Dragons have been imposed, tended to score at an early stage of the match.The initiative paid off in the 13th minute when Dragons break through host’s defense. Lulić perfectly laid off a lofted ball to the captain, and Džeko crashed in a powerful low shot for the lead of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Hosts goalkeeper Ferran Pol was powerless.There were no good opportunities in the next 10 minutes. After 24 minutes, Edin Višća has tried his own shot, but it was off the target. The hosts spent a game in a difficult defense.Dragons performed another action after 32 minutes. Višća and Mujdža combined, and Mujdža assisted for Ibišević who missed the goal. Score remained the same.In 61 minute, the match clock showed 0: 3. Again the main roles were played by Senad Lulić as an assistant and Edin Džeko as implementer. It should be noted that the defense of Andorra seemed insecure, and BH duo used it well.last_img read more

Solís 100day report leads to criminal investigation of 4 government agencies

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica’s Solís claims $112 million in losses from corruption in speech highlighting first 100 days of his administration Latin America’s anti-corruption crusade Guatemala prosecutor confident President Pérez Molina will be removed from office, charged with graft PHOTOS: A look back at how Guatemalan citizens demanded justice – and won Casa Presidencial found itself among four government agencies under investigation by the Assistant Prosecutor for Probity, Transparency and Anti-Corruption (FAPTA) following President Luis Guillermo Solís’ denunciations in his100-day report on the state of the government in late August.The Prosecutor’s Office confirmed to The Tico Times by email that the FAPTA would open a criminal investigation in conjunction with the Judicial Investigation Police into allegations spanning Casa Presidencial, the National Power and Light Company (CNFL), the Education Ministry (MEP), and the Pacific Port Authority (INCOP). If charges are filed, they would be the first criminal prosecutions to follow the president’s campaign promise to root out corruption and mismanagement in public administration.These are the four cases FAPTA decided to pursue after reviewing the 100-day assessment by the president’s office:President Solís named Casa Presidencial in his jeremiad of government waste and possible crime on Aug. 28, lamenting that 117 vehicles registered to the president’s office had simply gone missing. “Frankly, I don’t believe, and neither should you all, that they have been stolen, but the truth is no one knows where they are,” Solís said during the presentation of the report.INCOP is under investigation for spending ₡2.4 million — roughly $4,400 — every month to maintain a luxury beach home in the northwestern province of Guanacaste for the discretional use of the Port Authority’s president, Jorge Luis Loría. INCOP was also criticized for paying more than $110,000 annually for an office where only four people worked.FAPTA also is looking into CNFL for paying some employees high salaries to lead departments that had no employees at a time when the public electricity company was running a ₡25 billion deficit – more than $46 million.Under the leadership of former Education Minister Leonardo Garnier, MEP is under investigation for employing a group of consultants who allegedly charged so much overtime that they practically doubled their salaries. Garnier defended the hours billed in an interview with the daily La Nación.Casa Presidencial and CNFL did not respond immediately to The Tico Times’ request for comment.The president said that the country had lost $112 million to corruption during the last decade.
