It now operates six retail outlets in the north east, and supplies corner shops and independent supermarkets.Thain’s operates a 24-hour shop on George Street in Aberdeen, where its macaroni pies are particularly popular.last_img read more

‘If you asked me, I’d say no’: Jokowi personally against repatriation of Indonesian IS members

first_imgPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has voiced his personal disapproval of the idea of repatriating Indonesian nationals who belonged to the Islamic State (IS), although he added that a Cabinet meeting would be held to discuss the matter further.             “If you asked me, before the Cabinet meeting, I would say no [repatriation], but it will be [discussed] in the Cabinet meeting,” said Jokowi at the State Palace on Wednesday.“We will calculate in detail the pluses and minuses, and the decision will be made after hearing from relevant ministries,” he added. Some 660 Indonesian citizens have been identified as foreign terrorist fighters who have pledged allegiance to IS and joined the movement in Syria and surrounding countries.Coordinating Legal, Political and Security Affairs Minister Mahfud MD separately conveyed a view similar to Jokowi’s, saying that he personally disagreed with the idea of repatriating Indonesian citizens who went abroad to join IS.“I agree that they should not be repatriated because they could pose a danger to the country, and in legal terms, their passports could be revoked as they went there [to IS territory] illegally,” he said.Mahfud said that many countries from which foreign terrorist fighters departed have yet to repatriate their citizens with the exception of certain special cases.He added, however, that the government was still considering the legal and constitutional aspects of transnational terrorism, particularly related to its citizens who joined terrorist movements abroad.Topics :last_img read more

Dodgers end Wilmer Font experiment, designate right-hander for assignment

first_img Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.Font is 27 years old. The only teams for which he’s pitched consistently exist at the minor league level. But since Font was out of minor league options, the Dodgers could not easily send him to Triple-A to begin the season. They now have seven days to place Font on waivers, and 10 days in which to trade him, release him or outright him to the minor leagues.“We know there’s some interest in him out there in the market,” Roberts said. “Hopefully he lands somewhere on a big-league club.”Font was the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Year in 2017, when he went 10-8 with a 3.42 ERA in 25 starts for Oklahoma City.ROTATION CHOICESThe Dodgers’ choices to start Monday’s game were limited. Besides Buehler, who was scheduled to start Sunday for Oklahoma City, right-hander Brock Stewart and left-hander Manny Banuelos had ample rest since their last starts at Triple-A.Now, a special set of circumstances could keep Buehler in the Dodgers’ rotation beyond Monday. The Giants and Dodgers will be permitted a 26th player for Saturday’s doubleheader in San Francisco. The Dodgers could option Buehler to Triple-A on Tuesday, bring up an extra player, then recall Buehler specifically for Saturday’s start as the 26th man. “With the extra player available for the doubleheader, he’s certainly under consideration,” Roberts said of Buehler.If Stewart starts Tuesday as scheduled, that would line up Buehler as the most realistic choice for Saturday’s start. Banuelos isn’t on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster and would require a corresponding move to pitch in San Francisco; Buehler and Stewart would not.ALSORich Hill will pitch a simulated game Tuesday, Roberts said. “It’ll be around 70, 75 pitches, something like that. Once he checks that box we’ll continue to project where he pencils in.” Hill is on the 10-day disabled list with a cut on the tip of his left middle finger. … Logan Forsythe, on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, played catch from a distance of 60 feet.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start LOS ANGELES — Wilmer Font’s 14 innings as a Los Angeles Dodger did not go well.In nine appearances out of the bullpen – three as a September call-up last year and six more in 2018 – Font was scored upon in all but two. Seven different men hit home runs against him. His 12.86 ERA was the second-highest of anyone who has thrown 10 innings or more in a Dodgers uniform since at least 1884.The experiment ended on Monday, when Font was designated for assignment and Walker Buehler was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Buehler got his first start of the season against the Miami Marlins.“We needed to make room for Walker, number one,” Manager Dave Roberts said. “Carrying nine relievers is a little excessive. We just didn’t have the innings for (Font) to pitch consistently.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
