Frenchman facing death in Indonesia for molesting hundreds of kids

first_imgPolice said they had found videos on Abello’s laptop computer that showed him engaging in illegal sex acts with hundreds of children aged between 10 and 17.The pensioner had entered the Southeast Asian nation on a tourist visa several times over the past five years, according to police.”He would approach children and lure them by offering them work as models,” Jakarta police chief Nana Sudjana told reporters Thursday.”The ones who agreed to have sex with him would get paid between 250,000 and one million rupiah ($17-70). Those who didn’t want to have sex would be beaten, slapped and kicked by the suspect,” he added.Police said they believed Abello had been molesting Indonesian children for years and that there may be more victims.As many as 70,000 children are victims of sexual exploitation annually in Indonesia, according to global anti-trafficking network ECPAT International.American fugitive Russ Medlin, wanted at home in connection with a $700 million cryptocurrency scam, was arrested in Jakarta last month on allegations he paid underaged girls to have sex with him.Topics : A French retiree could face the death penalty in Indonesia on charges that he molested over 300 children and beat those who refused to have sex with him, authorities said Thursday.Police said they nabbed Francois Camille Abello, 65, last month at a hotel in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta, where they found two underaged girls in his room.Abello could face life in prison or even execution by firing squad if he is convicted on a raft of charges under Indonesia’s child protection laws, including accusations that he filmed the illicit encounters.last_img read more

Bach cited “financial pressure” on organizers and the need to address climate change and says “we may also have to look more closely into the proliferation of sports events.”The IOC president cautions in a letter to Olympic officials and athletes worldwide “the current health crisis will lead to a long and deep economic crisis” which will affect sports.Bach says “governments must include sport in their economic support programs” so it can be part of a worldwide recovery.The IOC has proposed saving money on staging the Tokyo Olympics in 2021 to help offset the Olympic body’s extra costs of hundreds of millions of dollars because of the postponement.___ The Italian sports minister says it is increasingly unlikely the soccer season will resume.Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte announced Sunday that professional sports teams can resume training on May 18. That means Serie A could resume playing games in June.But Vincenzo Spadafora tells Italian television channel LA7 that “resuming training absolutely does not mean resuming the season.”He adds that he sees “the path to restarting Serie A getting ever narrower” and that if he was among the presidents of soccer teams “I would be thinking about next season.”The French government called off the season in that country on Tuesday and Spadafora says that could push Italy to do the same.

UW looks for 1st win in Duluth

first_imgSophomore forward Brad Navin (26) will hope to pick up where he left off against UMD last year after scoring his first two collegiate goals in back to back games against the Bulldogs in 2011-12.[/media-credit]For the Wisconsin men’s hockey team, the season could not have started much worse.After a disappointing pair of losses to Northern Michigan Oct. 12 and 13 in the opening series of the season, UW heads into a vital series against Minnesota-Duluth (2-2) Friday and Saturday if it is to avoid further setbacks to a season filled with high expectations.After a rebuilding year of sorts for the Badgers in 2011-12 – UW finished with a 17-18-2 record and a first-round exit in the WCHA playoffs – the preseason rankings saw them open up the regular season with a No. 15 ranking. But after back-to-back losses to start the season, the Badgers quickly fell out of the polls. In both games against Northern Michigan, Wisconsin gave up five goals after being outshot 26-8 over the course of the series in the third period.Having not played in a competitive game since Oct. 13, UW has used practice over the last two weeks to regain its composure before heading to Duluth for its first WCHA game of the season Friday.“We are pretty fired up after having a tough start; we have been battling our rears off here at practice this past couple of weeks,” sophomore defenseman Jake McCabe said. “I think we are eager to get out there and play against someone else other than ourselves.”Providing even more motivation for Wisconsin in its upcoming series are the haunting memories of last year’s matchup with UMD at the Kohl Center.With a lead heading into the third period of the first game in their two-game series last season, the Badgers gave up a late goal that evened the score at 3-3. The game would eventually end in a 3-3 tie after overtime. Then, in the second game, UMD’s lead stretched to four goals midway through the final period before UW pulled back with two consolation goals later in the game, ultimately losing 4-2.Without a game to focus on last weekend, speculation swirled around the alleged breaking of Nic Kerdiles’ amateur status, a situation that would have proved distracting for many teams.Still, sophomore forward Brad Navin said since Kerdiles is a freshman and has yet to play a game for the Badgers, his absence should have little affect on the team’s performance.“I think the guys had kind of accepted the fact that Nic can’t play for these eight games; he has to sit out,” Navin said. “We know he is going to be a key player when he gets in the lineup, so [until then] guys are definitely stepping up and helping us fill that position.“We haven’t played with him this year, so we don’t really know what we can do with him yet.”Despite the struggles Wisconsin faced when they played the Bulldogs last season, UMD comes into this season a much different team.After losing star right-winger J.T. Brown – who led the team in goals and finished third on the team in points (60) last year with 24 goals and added 23 assists – to the Tampa Bay Lightning in the NHL in March, UMD was left with a major void to fill in its offense this offseason.But like any quality team, new players have stepped in to fill the void left by Brown’s departure. In particular, senior forward Mike Seidel, who finished with 17 goals and 13 assists last season, currently leads the team with three goals and three assists heading into UMD’s fifth and sixth games of the 2012-13 season. Despite Seidel’s impressive start to the season, UW’s defense will tackle UMD’s offense, and Seidel, the same as any other team, according to McCabe. “We just have to be aware of if a player is hot right now or [if] the top line is out there,” McCabe said. “You have to be aware of their top line. … When they have that top line out there you have to make sure that you keep everyone in front of you.“You don’t really have that much of a different mindset though. It’s more just, ‘Hey, this is their top line here guys; bring your A game.’”One key player who will be missing for the Badgers against UMD is senior forward Derek Lee, an assistant captain for Wisconsin, who was injured in a moped incident over the weekend.Still, despite missing two of its key offensive threats in Kerdiles and Lee, UW has high expectations for the upcoming conference season, and head coach Mike Eaves said at his press conference Monday he is excited for the team to get on the road as the season is finally under way.“We’re excited to get on the road,” Eaves said. “It’s a unique experience to try to get some points when you’re on the road. We’re looking forward to that challenge. We had a good week of practice. We’ll continue to build this week and see if we can get down on the road.”last_img read more
