first_imgBy Dialogo July 10, 2009 Panama City, July 8 (EFE).- The Panamanian police confiscated 2.3 tons of cocaine and detained two Mexicans and one Panamanian linked to smuggling during two operations carried out in the province of Colón and in La Chorrera, west of the capital, the director of the police, Gustavo Pérez, announced today. Pérez stated to the press that “Kamboya Operation” in the town of Río Veraguas, in Colón, in the Caribbean region, and “Llano Operation” in the district of La Chorrera, were carried out yesterday in cooperation with the Public Prosecutor’s Office. In “Kamboya Operation,” 200 kilos of cocaine and a long-range rifle with a 24-shot cartridge were confiscated, but there were no arrests. The Chief Public Prosecutor for Drugs, Javier Caraballo, explained that the drugs were found hidden in the underbrush and packed in around eighty-seven bags. According to the official, the authorities believe that the drug traffickers were in the middle of refueling when the police action took place. “Two individuals were seen in the area at the time of the operation, but they fled,” specified Caraballo, who indicated that, although the final destination of the drugs is also unknown for certain, “they’re generally headed to the countries to the north.” He indicated that the Atlantic corridor, the area where the bags were found, is used for international drug trafficking, “especially by speedboats that leave Colombia and generally head for Mexico or the United States.” In “Llano Operation,” besides confiscating 2.1 tons of cocaine, the police arrested two Mexican citizens who had been released on bond while awaiting trial on similar charges, and one Panamanian. The drugs were found hidden in a truck that had a metal false bottom in its roof, according to the authorities, who did not release the names of the persons implicated. Two other vehicles, one of which had a false bottom, a sealed tank of gas for an outboard motor, and welding materials, were also seized in the operation.last_img read more

first_imgFrench coach Jean-Louis Gasset has indicated  interest  in coaching  an African  national team  before he finally winds down his  managerial career. Though the former St Etienne manager was coy on his final destination in an interview with the French newspaper, L’Equipe,  the Super Eagles would most likely be one of his options given the current  circumstance surrounding the job of  German coach Gernot Rohr. The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF)  are yet  to table a new offer before the German  coach with words rife that he might be  handed stringent conditions  that may  eventually scupper the deal.     “At 50, I was put off by the idea (of coaching a national team),”  the 66-year-old Gasset  reportedly said.  Not enough work; but today, yes, I would like it. “ I would like to become a national team coach, discover youngsters, converse with the major players, build a squad up in record time, experience the rush that matches give you, then the competition, the euphoria of managing a country and understand why, when French people succeed, they are called ’White Wizards’.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content6 Most Unforgettable Bridges In The WorldBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemThe New Lara Croft Will Really Surprise YouTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Becoming a national team coach would offer the right mix, a good compromise between my love of football and my family,” he added. Gasset has varied experiences   in the French Ligue 1 side  and apart from Saint-Étienne, he led the Montpellier HSC to victory in the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 1999 en route to  coaching SM Caen and FC Istres. The former midfielder might yet be an option for  the beleaguered NFF President Amaju Pinnick who has not hidden his disdain  over  Rohr’s  nonchalant attitude to the domestic Nigerian League amongst other vexed issues.
