Educating young key to combatting corruption in sport: Ex-EU Justice Commissioner
Educating the young should be the priority in the fight against corruption in sport, says former European Union Justice Commissioner Franco Frattini, who warned that "sport is more than ever vulnerable to crime". "We should not forget the young, they are the first victim" he said, speaking on the panel 'Sport's Big Fight: Anti-Corruption in Sport'."I very much prefer the school of sport rather the school of crime but unfortunately in our cities in some rundown suburbs there are schools of crime," said Frattini, the chairman of Sport Integrity Global Alliance (SIGA).
This is one of the most beautiful CVs in Suriname, a small country in South America from French Guiana. Ronnie Brunswijk, 60, is the current vice-president after being soldier, chief rebel guerrilla, powerful businessman sought for drug trafficking and condemned as such by Dutch justice (former colonial power) and French. At its lost hours, the leader is also the owner and the president of the Inter Moengotapoe Club and since this week, captain of the team. The sexagenarian has indeed tenured to play Tuesday at home in front of a Honduras club, the Olimpia CD, in the eighth of final Go from the Concacaf League, the equivalent of the Europa League in the North America zone, Central America and the Caribbean.
South Africa’s top court rejects Zuma’s bid to overturn sentence
Ex-President Jacob Zuma sought to have his jail sentence for contempt overturned, arguing it would endanger his health.The sentence was handed down in June after Zuma failed to testify at an inquiry probing corruption during his nine-year rule, seen as a test of post-apartheid South Africa’s ability to enforce the rule of law, particularly against powerful politicians.
Ronnie Brunswijk had already put down this jersey for three matches in the past, whose last disputed in March 2011, but advised this time to become "the oldest player to compete an international match of clubs". Unfortunately for him, his contribution has been limited. Aligned in attack at the side of another member of his family, Damian Brunswijk, he could not prevent his club a scathing defeat, 0-6. But the number 61 - his year of birth - can always console himself by saying that at the time of his exit, after 54 minutes of play, the Inter Moengotapoe had still cashed "only" three goals.It distributes tickets to its opponents
the story, however, does not stop there for the Vice President of Suriname. It was then filmed in the locker rooms giving tickets to the players of the opposing team. The reasons for this gesture are not known but Concacaf has announced the opening of an investigation to make light. "We are extremely concerned about the content of a video that circulates on social networks and raises issues of potential integrity," explains in a statement the football confederation.

One thing is certain: the scene will not happen again next week for the return match in Honduras. Ronnie Brunswijk does not come out of his country due to the international arrest mandate that threatens and extradition risk. The one who is nicknamed the "Baron of Gold", of which Suriname is exporter, will have to a distance from a feat of his club if he wants to replay in this competition.
