PSG Midfielder Aminata Diallo Released By Police Investigating Attack On Fellow Team-Mate

Published

on

Paris St Germain midfielder Aminata Diallo has been released by police following her arrest on Wednesday November 10.

PSG had confirmed Diallo was taken into custody on Wednesday morning by the Versailles Regional Police Service “as part of the proceedings opened following an attack on the club’s players last Thursday evening”.

French daily L’Equipe reported that Diallo’s fellow PSG and France midfielder Kheira Hamraoui was attacked in the street by two masked men on Thursday, November 4.

The club’s statement released on Thursday said: “Paris St Germain take note of Aminata Diallo’s release after police custody.

“The club remains alongside its players to enable them to overcome this ordeal and quickly regain serenity.

“Paris St Germain reiterates its confidence injustice to shed light on the events. The club thanks everyone for showing restraint, respecting the presumption of innocence and the privacy of the team.”

It was gathered that authorities were working on the theory that Diallo hired goons to put her talented rival out of action so she could take her place in PSG’s team.

Police have yet to identify the masked men who carried out the beating.

Hours before the attack took place, all PSG players and staff had attended a ‘bonding’ inner at posh restaurant Le Chalet des Iles, located on an island in the Bois de Boulogne, Paris.

After the meal Diallo had offered to drive Hamraoui and another player – Sakina Karchaoui – home to the nearby department of Yvelines, where all three live.

Diallo had just dropped Karchaoui off at her home around 10.30pm when the masked attackers approached the car and dragged Hamraoui out.

One of them allegedly shouted abuse at Hamraoui and beat her legs with an iron bar, while the other ‘detained’ Diallo but did not harm her.

The attack lasted ‘a few minutes’ before both of the men fled.

Hamraoui immediately contacted the head of security at PSG and the team’s assistant coach before going to hospital, where she received stitches.

She then missed team training sessions and an important Champions League match against Real Madrid on Tuesday night – with Diallo starting in her place.

At 6 am the morning after the match, Diallo was arrested at her home in Marly-le-Roi and taken into police custody.

Parliament Rejects 2022 Budget After NPP MPs Walked Out

Published

on

Parliament has rejected the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy read in the House by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, last week.

Members on the Majority side of Parliament staged a walkout on Friday, November 26, 2021, following a disagreement over a directive by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, for non-MPs to vacate the Chamber.

The Majority’s actions did not prevent the House from continuing with the business of the day as the budget received a rejection by solely NDC MPs.

The Majority MPs demanded that General Secretary of the NDC Johnson Asiedu Nketia who was seated in the public gallery leaves Parliament before they continue with the business of the House.

“Clearly, the No’s have it. The motion is accordingly lost,” the Speaker ruled.

Mr Asiedu Nketia ignored their request which infuriated the Majority MPs who walked out of the Chamber, leaving only members on the Minority side.

The Speaker of Parliament thus suspended the sitting for five minutes after which the business of the day proceeded.

A last-minute request by the Finance Minister to meet with the leadership of the House was turned down by MPs after the Speaker of Parliament announced that the ‘Nos’ had won the voice vote.

Jake Paul Claims Floyd Mayweather Tried To Get Him Assassinated In Miami

Published

YouTube personality-turned boxer, Jake Paul claimed undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather tried to have him assassinated earlier this year.

Paul and Mayweather were involved in a heated confrontation at a pre-fight press conference for the former world champion’s exhibition bout with his brother Logan Paul in June.

Mayweather had his hat stolen by Paul, who said “got ya hat” as he ran off, with a brawl ensuing backstage at the event afterward.

Paul then went on to mock Mayweather on social media, selling merchandise with the “got ya hat” phrase emblazoned upon it, and even got the phrase tattooed on his calf afterward.

Mayweather was incensed by Paul, with the 24-year-old now claiming that the retired boxer wanted to “kill” him due to the stunt.

Speaking on the FULL SEND podcast in September, Paul said: “He was trying to get me killed behind the scenes, for sure.

“He was calling, like, ‘the gangsters,’ because we were in Miami at the time. He was, like, calling the ‘street people,’ ’cause my security is tapped into the street people.

“They were like, ‘Yo, you guys gotta be f**king careful. He’s trying to do something.

“So, whatever the f**k that meant, or means… I was like, ‘Alright, if this is how I die, this is how I die.’”

No winner was declared when Mayweather fought his older brother in Miami in June, with the eight-round bout rounding off a card that also included Badou Jack.
