Contact us at [email protected] News center_img North Korea tries to accelerate building of walls and fences along border with China SHARE News News Le demi-frère de feu Kim Jong Il, Kim PyongIl, actuel ambassadeur de Corée du Nord en République tchèque, fait l’objetd’une surveillance constante par les membres du parti dépêchés à sescôtés, et qui l’empêchent ainsi d’exercer ses fonctions de diplomate àPrague. Kim Pyong Il, rentré récemment en Corée du Nord, a jusqu’à présent étécomplètement écarté du pouvoir car considéré comme membre d’une des« branches non-désirées » par la direction nord-coréenne. « Le Nord a ordonné au secrétaire duparti de le surveiller de près », a révélé jeudi à Daily NK une sourceproche du milieu diplomatique nord-coréen. « Ils sont parvenus à mettre enœuvre des mesures efficaces pour empêcher qui que ce soit de pouvoir lerencontrer, et ce tant quand il était ambassadeur à Varsovie que désormais àPrague. En somme, il a vécu quasiment seul pendant 30 ans. » Cette information a été corroborée par unesource chinoise. Kim Pyong Il est le demi-frère paternel de KimJong Il et fut envoyé en Europe quand ce dernier fut pressenti à la successionde Kim Il Sung. Cette mise à l’écart fut l’une des manifestations de lapréférence accordée à la « pure lignée Paektu » (du mont sacré dumême nom). Et malgré ses fonctions d’ambassadeur, Kim Pyong Il fut quasimentdépourvu de tout pouvoir lui permettant de les exercer. Selon la source, « il n’avait même pasaccès aux documents diplomatiques. Il n’était rien d’autre qu’un épouvantail,les tâches étant exercées par le secrétaire du parti et Kim Pyong Il secontentant d’assister aux réunions. Même ses enfants n’avaient pas ledroit de jouer avec ceux des autres, et se sont retrouvés aussi isolés que leurpère. » Quant aux raisons présidant à sa présence enCorée du Nord pour participer à une réunion d’ambassadeurs, « ce n’est pastant que Kim Jong Un le considère comme un oncle : il le voit plutôt commeun simple ambassadeur », a précisé la source, qui a en outre ajouté quel’événement pourrait même être utilisé à des fins de propagande pour vanter labienveillance de Kim Jong Un. « Plus personne n’accorde d’importance à KimPyong Il. Il a été en fonction à l’étranger pendant si longtemps que les gensne se souviennent même plus de sa tête ; et Kim Jong Un sachantcertainement qu’il n’a plus aucune influence s’est décidé à l’inviter. » Un retour soudain qui interpelle toutefois lasource : « Kim Jong Un aurait pu se contenter de le laissertranquille, mais le fait qu’il l’a fait rentrer peut être de mauvaise augurepour Kim Pyong Il. Compte tenu de la terreur mise en œuvre par Kim JongUn, il est possible qu’il entende mettre définitivement Kim Pyong Il à l’écart.Il envisage peut-être de le remplacer par l’un des siens, et envoyer Kim PyongIl ailleurs, dans un endroit que personne ne connaît, et sous surveillanceétroite. Il ne faut pas écarter cette possibilité. » Kim Pyong Il est né de Kim Il Sung, fondateurdu pays, et de Kim Song Ae, la seconde épouse de ce dernier. Son demi-frère KimJong Il a ultérieurement souligné sur le fait qu’il ne fallait pas se faired’illusions concernant Kim Pyong Il et les autres demi-frères et demi-sœurs,qu’il a surnommés les « branches non-désirées » avant de verrouillertout accès au pouvoir central. * Le contenu de cet article a été diffusé à lapopulation nord-coréenne via Unification Media Group.

Reports: Sousa could be an eventual replacement for Luis Enrique

first_imgLuis Enrique has a contract with Barcelona until the summer of 2017 and even though there’s a while to run on that deal, in Italy there are already reports about possible replacements in the case that he doesn’t decide to continue with the club beyond that date.  Upd. at 14:43 04/03/2016 CET The Portuguese coach has been earning praise for his performance on the bench in Florence, where the club play an attractive brand of football. Bucchioni writes: “We’ve already spoke about Sousa, but it’s worth repeating because while Chelsea and Juventus have asked about him, Zenit and Barcelona also have. Sport EN “He has spoken about his situation with the Viola’s directors and will stay with the club for the moment and try to win a title next season. Fiorentina’s spectacular play has led to Juve and Barça wanting him [possibly] in 2017. That’s the date when Luis Enrique’s contract ends and Sousa could soon talk about his future.”  In an editorial on ‘Tuttomercato’, written by the Italian journalist Enzo Bucchioni, it’s reported that there is interest from several clubs in current Fiorentina manager Paulo Sousa. Fiorentina are currently fourth in Serie A, level on points with Roma, who are third.  Sousa has previously coached QPR, Swansea City, Leicester City, Videoton, Maccabi Tel Aviv and Basel before taking over at Fiorentina.last_img read more

Sharjeel Khan to challenge ban appeal dismissal in high court

first_imgJust a day after Sharjeel Khan’s appeal against his five-year ban over spot-fixing was overruled by the Appellate Tribunal, the Pakistan opener’s lawyer Shaigan Ijaz has decided to challenge the decision before a high court.Sharjeel was the first player to be banned for five years for his involvement in the spot-fixing scandal that marred the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) earlier this year.However, his half of the ban was suspended by the anti-corruption tribunal of the PCB, based on circumstantial evidence.The spot-fixing allegations relate to a match between Sharjeel’s team Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi in Dubai in February during the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).Yesterday, Sharjeel’s appeal, along with PCB’s petition to increase the opener’s punishment was rejected by the Tribunal, headed by retired Justice Faqir Mohammad Khokhar.Sharjeel’s lawyer, in a petition, had earlier requested to curtail the suspension of the banned cricketer, which was handed to Sharjeel by the ACU.On the other side, the PCB had also submitted a petition to the tribunal, asking to grant a more severe punishment to the cricketer as the current suspension did not justify the breach committed by him.Disappointed by the tribunal decision against Sharjeel, his lawyer Ijaz pledged to move to the high court to get justice.”The decision is disappointing and we will definitely go to the high court after knowing on what grounds our appeal was rejected. The PCB has not been able to prove the spot-fixing and that has halted a promising career,” the Dawn quoted Ijaz, as saying.advertisementOn March 6, a three-member tribunal was formed by the PCB to investigate the spot-fixing case allegedly involving Sharjeel and Khalid Latif.Sharjeel and Latif are facing charges for a number of breaches of the anti-corruption code of the PCB while playing for their respective teams in the second edition of the PSL.Other players involved in the spot-fixing case were Shahzaib Hasan, Nasir Jamshed, Mohammad Irfan and Mohammad Nawaz and they all are provisionally suspended by the PCB.last_img read more
