Ronaldinho remains under house arrest in Paraguay

first_imgBrazilian legend Ronaldinho will remain under house arrest in Paraguay after an appeal court judge rejected efforts to release the former footballer and his brother.The 40-year-old former Barcelona and AC Milan star spent 32 days in prison in Paraguay after he was arrested for allegedly trying to enter the country on a fake passport in March. Since his release from jail in April, Ronaldinho and his brother Roberto de Assis, who was charged with the same crime, have stayed at a four-star hotel in the country’s capital Asuncion awaiting their trial.Ronaldinho had faced up to six months in prison but reportedly paid a £1.3million bond.But his latest attempt to appeal against his house arrest has failed at the Paraguayan Court of Appeal, according to Globo.Earlier this week, Ronaldinho spoke of spending “sixty long days” under guard in the hotel and it now appears he will have to remain there a little longer.He compared his house arrest to those people isolating in their homes during the coronavirus pandemic. “People in their homes must imagine what it must be like not being able to do what you are used to,” he told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.“I think that is something that will remain with us all forever after living in this complicated experience.“I hope that soon everything will return to normal and we can return to our homes. Hopefully everything will be as before.”Ronaldinho is staying in the four-star Hotel Palmaroga, a number of hotels owned by Barcelona.The former Barcelona star spent 32 days in jail over accusations he used a forged passport. And he expressed his gratitude to his former club: “Definitely, Barcelona and I are united forever. It will always be my second city.“Barcelona always treats me with a lot of love and respect. I thank you with all my heart for the messages and your love.“It is the most incredible club and the fans live deep in my heart. I thank you with all my heart.”—RelatedPosts Ibrahimovic to stay at Milan for another season – Reports Ronaldinho regains freedom in Paraguay Despite being under house arrest, Ronaldinho hosts parties with models Tags: AC MilanAppeal CourtRoberto de AssisRonaldinholast_img read more

Miramar Mayor Wayne Messam Promises Transformational Change as President

first_imgSuccessful businessman and politician Wayne Messam has served as mayor of Miramar since 2015. On Saturday, March 30, he will be officially announcing his run in the 2020 presidential campaign. In an exclusive pre-announcement interview with CNW, a confident Messam shared a bit about the driving force behind his decision to run for president, and what he hopes to achieve in the role. As the leader of the nation, Messam says he wants to rekindle the dying American Dream. “We must recommit to making that an achievable reality – whether someone wants to go to college, start a business, learn a trade, own a home, or start a family.”Miramar Mayor Wayne Messam with wife, Angela, with children Wayne II, and twin daughters, Kayla and Kyla.Messam further told CNW, “The main problem in our country is a lack of urgency to plan for the future and take action on crises we can see coming, whether it’s the gun violence epidemic, climate change or crippling student loan debt.” He wants to tackle these issues head-on, as well as problems related to shifts in economy, skyrocketing healthcare costs, underfunded public schools, and mending the breakdown in the country’s global leadership role, which, he says, has been worsened by the current administration.He also believes that as the two-term mayor of Miramar, a fast-growing, diverse city in the nation’s largest battleground state, he is at an advantage among his many Democratic competitors.“Mayors are closest to the people, and the people think Washington doesn’t work for them. I’ve taken on challenges my entire life to make life better for people, whether by creating jobs or raising wages for workers. I think these big issues need fresh eyes from someone who is closer to the American people on a daily basis. With the support of everyday people, we can finally bring bold ideas back into the conversation, solve problems, and plan for the future,” Messam told CNW. “Mayors get things done for our communities with a sense of urgency,” he added. He also suggests that being black will not hold back his nomination, noting, “This Democratic primary is the most diverse in history. America is diverse, and its leaders should reflect and celebrate the people they serve.” He is eager to see the country move beyond the current administration’s divided rhetoric, focusing instead on what unites all Americans. A large portion of his campaign’s funding will come from small donors across all 50 states, he shares. He believes his message will resonate deeply with the masses across the US. “It will be a guiding principle for our campaign to reach people where they are and take no one’s support for granted. Far too many communities in this country feel left behind and deserve someone in their corner who will have their back,” he shared. “Americans struggling to make ends meet should be the priority,” Messam told CNW. “I’ve spent my life working to better people’s lives. Together, we can create real transformative change in this country, and do just that.” Messam says he will still diligently run Miramar as its mayor while campaigning, and plans to put the city further on the map by spreading the word about its lengthy list of achievements far and wide while touring the country. Miramar will also be the home of his campaign headquarters. Messam’s wife Angela and three children are excited about the possibilities for the future. “We had many family discussions about this decision and know this will be a marathon not a sprint, but believe in our hearts that this is the right decision based on our experience, vision and this moment facing our country,” he explained. 44-year-old Messam was born in Florida to Jamaican immigrant parents who both had no more than a fifth grade education. After landing in the US, the politician’s parents worked feverishly to provide for their family –  with Messam’s father working the sugar cane fields of the Florida Glades, and his mother assuming the role of a cook to feed the migrant workers.Despite his humble upbringing, Messam excelled in academics, completed college and went on to  build one of the fastest-growing, minority-owned construction businesses in the country, Messam Construction, which he owns with wife.last_img read more
