File) Top News Usain Bolt says he is serious about starting up a football career now he has retired from sprinting — and believes he could even be good enough to play for Jamaica The 31-year-old eight-time Olympic gold medallist currently recovering from a hamstring injury accepted there might be some scepticism but said it had always been his boyhood dream “For me it’s a personal goal I don’t care what people really think about it I’m not going to lie to myself I’m not going to be stupid” the Jamaican told reporters at the US Formula One Grand Prix He was speaking before world champion Lewis Hamilton drove him around the Circuit of the Americas in a Mercedes AMG sportscar sending the car sliding into corners and ending with tyre-smoking spins “If I feel I can’t do it I’m going to say ‘you know what forget this’ I’m not trying to embarrass myself But if I go out there and feel I can do this then I will give it a try It’s a dream and another chapter of my life” said Bolt “If you have a dream that you always wanted to do why not try and see where it will go” The world’s fastest man has been sponsored by Puma since he was 15 and the German sportswear company has a stake in Borussia Dortmund Bolt who retired from athletics after August’s world championships in London has been invited to spend a week training with the Bundesliga club and he plans to take it up “It’s just my hamstring is keeping me back right now In two weeks I can start training again and get back into some shape Then I can really explore the situation” he said “They say the invitation is always open so it’s all about me getting over my injury and then getting into shape Then I can do the trials and see what level I’m at” A keen Manchester United fan Bolt doubted manager Jose Mourinho would be on the phone any time soon but said he had spoken to the club’s former manager Alex Ferguson about his dream “He said ‘Alright get into shape and I’ll see where that goes’” said the sprinter Jamaica who failed to qualify for next year’s World Cup finals are currently 59th in the world rankings leaving Bolt to also muse: “I think I can make the Jamaica team easily I wouldn’t say they are that good at this point” Bolt who suffered the injury in his final race the world championships 4 x 100 metres relay final again ruled out any athletics comeback saying he missed the laughs and banter but not the training and he was intending to start a family “I’m waiting to see if my football career will go anywhere but I definitely want to work with the IAAF in ways to promote the sport and help keep it on the level on which I left it” he added “Being a coach No Definitely not” Asked about the current state of athletics and doping scandals that have seen Russian athletes barred from competition the Jamaican felt the sport was climbing back out of the gutter “You have to get to the worst to start rebuilding and I think the Russia situation was the worst we could get” he said “Now it’s all about rebuilding and making people trust the sport again This year was the first that we made a step in the right direction so hopefully we continue “If you’re in the gutter and working your

Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) first raised questions about the Sahara group the agencies and institutions that have looked into the matter — including SEBI itself the Security Appellate Tribunal (SAT) the Allahabad High Court the Supreme Court the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Ministry of Corporate Affairs — have repeatedly brought up one issue Sahara’s “intent” SEBI’s attention was drawn to Sahara when it was approached by Sahara Prime City for an initial public offering SEBI raised questions on the Optionally Fully Convertible Debentures (OFCDs) a hybrid financial instrument to the tune of Rs 24000 crore issued by two sister concerns Sahara India Real Estate Corporation Ltd (SIRECL) and Sahara Housing Investment Corporation Ltd (SHICL) and whether these were for public placement and hence came under SEBI’s jurisdiction In a show-cause notice to SIRECL and SHICL then SEBI member K M Abraham said “The very fact that the offer was made to friends associates Group Companies workers/employees and other individuals who are associated/affiliated or connected in any manner with Sahara India Group of Companies by itself would indicate the intention of the offer or to make the offer to wider gamut of people” Sahara argued that it did not come under SEBI purview as it did not “intend” to make public placement of the OFCDs In April-May 2011 SEBI’s senior advocate Arvind Datar* quoted from a landmark British case — Young vs Bristol Aeroplane Co Ltd — before SAT to argue that “Sahara should be judged by what they did not what they intended” When SEBI asked for details of those who had subscribed to Sahara’s OFCDs the group first said their staff were on a long holiday and so it could not provide the details A SEBI officer involved in the investigation from the beginning said “It was clear that they did not want disclosure Their intentions were our problem” THE MINISTRY’S ENTRY Asked to furnish details to SEBI Sahara in June 2010 forwarded a letter from the office of then minister of state for corporate affairs Salman Khurshid stating that his ministry was examining whether the issue under SEBI’s scrutiny was a matter of the ministry’s jurisdiction Sahara argued that they were guided by the Companies Act SEBI made it clear that there was no such official communication between the ministry and it Sahara next approached the Allahabad High Court which granted a stay on SEBI’s proceedings Meanwhile even as the Ministry of Corporate Affairs gave an affidavit in the high court supporting Sahara’s stand the arguments against this contiunued within the ministry In February 2011 the ministry sought legal opinion Then additional solicitor general Parag Tripathi said the matter fell in the domain of SEBI However the ministry sought a second opinion from another ASG present Solicitor General Mohan Parasaran who favoured the ministry’s stand A note put up internally within the ministry in April 2011 said “The first proviso to Section 67(3) inserted by the Companies (Amendment) Act 2000 with effect from 13122000 sets at rest the question by stating that if an invitation to subscription is made to 50 or more persons it ceases to be a private placement” Arguing against Datar in SAT the government lawyer meanwhile said he hadn’t read Parag Tripathi’s opinion as it was not in the records provided to him By the time the ministry decided in June 2011 that it wouldn’t interfere in the case SEBI had won in SAT In October 2011 SAT directed the two Sahara firms to refund Rs 24029 crore within six weeks to over 29 million investors THE 5984 KALAWATIS While maintaining a stay on proceedings against Sahara the Allahabad High Court as well as then chief justice of India S H Kapadia had asked the group to provide the information sought by SEBI In April 2011 Sahara deposited an encrypted CD containing details of the subscribers of the OFCDs without providing the password Angered the high court vacated the stay saying that for it Sahara had to “thank their own stars” The investigation now picked up pace with SEBI directing Sahara to refund investors with 15 per cent interest and forwarding a copy of the order to various investigating agencies SEBI and the ED also told the apex court that the three crore investors listed by Sahara were not genuine SEBI for example said it had found 1433 entries in the name of Aniruddh Singh from one address An Indian Express report of May 2 2013 noted that the Sahara list of OFCD subscribers had the name Kalawati 5984 times apart from multiple entries with the same addresses or from places that didn’t exist In 2012 the Registrar of Companies opened a complaint registry for Sahara investors in Kanpur According to Ministry of Corporate Affairs officials only 47 complaints have been registered so far “It is strange” says a source in the ministry “For instance when a similar scheme with far less magnitude Saradha Chit Funds went down there where riots and self-immolations The investors of Sahara do not seem to be bothered though Rs 20000 crore are at stake” THE MYSTERIOUS CASH In August 2012 the FIU (Financial Intelligence Unit) informed the ED and SEBI that when SEBI issued the first order restraining Sahara from taking any more investments the group transferred approximately Rs 3600 crore abroad without prior approval of the RBI The ED’s case on forex violation in this matter is finished and pending adjudication against Sahara and banks In one of the largest ever reporting of suspicious cash transactions the FIU also told enforcement agencies last year that it had noticed “substantial cash transactions” in 4753 “additional bank accounts” of firms owned by the Sahara group maintained in 50 banks across 23 states The Sunday Express has accessed the FIU data that covers the period from May 2013 and talks about transactions ranging from Rs 25 lakh to Rs 50 crore The FIU has shared this with the CBI ED and SEBI According to sources the agencies are now trying to match FIU data with profiles of the 66-odd lakh investors in SIRECL THE PROPERTY QUESTIONS After Sahara failed to convince the apex court that it had refundedRs 24000 crore to investors in August 2012 the court ordered SEBI to attach Sahara’s properties and asked the group to submit titles equivalent to Rs 24000 crore SEBI later said that the titles submitted were grossly overvalued In November 2012 SEBI filed a contempt petition against Sahara for not following the Supreme Court order On February 26 2014 Roy missed a directive to appear before the court and two days later was held for contempt The court has given Subrata Roy and Sahara time till March 11 to come up with a plan to refund investors failing which his custody could be prolonged In a reply to The Sunday Express the Sahara group said “The Supreme Court order dated 21112013 states that Sahara Group of Companies shall not part with any movable and immovable properties The order does not bind the group (from) carrying out normal business and thousands of service centre/offices are carrying out ordinary course of business through current account as current accounts of the Sahara Group are not covered by the said order” *An earlier version of this story inadvertently identified Arvind Datar as Sahara’s senior advocate Dattar has been the senior counsel for SEBI in the case against

They have provided pastoral care, and humanitarian assistance and shelter to those affected by and internally displaced more than a half-century of armed conflict. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Colombia Bishop Francisco Duque is calling for prayer in the aftermath of an Oct. 2 popular vote in which voters narrowly rejected a peace deal that would have ended more than 50 years of armed conflict between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.“We call on the church to pray a lot so that the necessary accord is reached and so that we can all live as brothers,” said Duque. “Let’s achieve a peace that brings justice, reparations and not repetition.”Sunday’s vote defied polls that predicted overwhelming support for the peace accord. With a total of 99.8 percent of all ballots tallied, 50.2 percent of voters rejected the accord, and 49.8 percent voted “yes” for peace.“We’re still in shock. We haven’t processed the results yet. It was a vote based on emotion, opinion. The people who showed up to vote ‘no’ didn’t want to let anyone know their opinion before so they wouldn’t be judged, but when they went to the polls they expressed themselves,” said Duque in an Oct. 3 interview with Episcopal News Service.“Earlier polling projected that more than 60 percent of the population would vote yes, but the reality was very different, and many people didn’t even turn out to vote,” he said.Less than 38 percent of voters went to the polls.The “no vote” put an end to four years of peace talks. The Colombian government and the FARC, the largest guerrilla group in the country, have been negotiating in Havana, Cuba.The referendum wasn’t legally necessary to implement the peace accord negotiated between the government and FARC. However, the president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, thought that a popular vote would lend legitimacy to the accord.On the night of Oct. 2, Santos regretfully recognized the referendum’s outcome. “Today I address the country as president of all Colombians, of both those who voted yes and those who voted no. I called for a referendum. The majority, be it by a very narrow margin, said ‘no.’ I am the first to recognize the result,” he said.Via Twitter on Oct. 2 the FARC wrote: “To the Colombian people who dream of peace, [you can] count on us. Peace will prevail.”In June, the government and the FARC signed a historic ceasefire, which Santos said on Oct. 4 that he would extend until Oct. 31.The guerilla leader, Rodrigo Londoño, alias “Timochenko,” issued a statement confirming the ceasefire from Cuba following the vote’s results. “FARC-EP reiterates its willingness to use only words as weapons for building toward the future,” he wrote.Duque indicated that the reaffirmation of the ceasefire is a hopeful sign.“The people have had doubts about what the FARC will get [after the accord], but all of us want an end to the war. As a church we see our role will be to reconcile brothers with such polarized opinions and to pursue building peace together,” he said.Though, he added, the church recognizes that the way forward will not be easy.Last May, before the ceasefire, the Episcopal Diocese of Colombia agreed at a national convention to support the peace process, offering the government its facilities as “spaces for exercises in reconciliation to succeed in building a sustainable peace.”(The Episcopal Diocese of Colombia is one of seven dioceses that make up the Episcopal Church’s ninth province, which covers Central and South America and the Caribbean.)Colombians most affected by the war voted ‘yes.’ Since the mid-1960s government forces, left-wing guerrillas and right-wing paramilitaries have been fighting a civil war rooted in inequality that has killed more than 220,000 Colombians. Some 6.7 million people are displaced inside Colombia, about 13 percent of the 47 million inhabitants. Another 360,000 refugees have fled abroad, most to Ecuador – which hosts the largest number of refugees in Latin America, and another 170,000 have fled to Venezuela.Churches throughout the Diocese of Colombia have stood with those affected by the conflict. They have provided pastoral care, and humanitarian assistance and shelter to Colombians affected by and internally displaced more than a half-century of armed conflict.The church also has assisted Colombian refugees to rebuild their lives in Ecuador.According to information gathered by the magazine Semana of Colombia, a majority of voters in areas most affected by armed conflict supported the peace accord. In mountainous regions like Chocó, Caquetá, and Nariiño where the presence of war lingers, more than 60 percent of the votes were “yes” votes for peace.Former Colombian President Álvaro Uribe led the “no vote,”  saying it was too lenient on the rebels.— Clara Villatoro is a freelance journalist based in El Salvador.
