Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks nd Caicos, June 15, 2017 – Providenciales – The Ministry of Border Control and Employment recently undertook a review of the passport process in light of the numerous complaints from the public and their dissatisfaction with the process, especially the increased length of time being taken for the renewal of a Turks and Caicos Islands Passport.The Ministry, this week, concluded several discussions with Her Majesty’s Passport Office (HMPO) and the members of the Registration and Citizenship department within the Ministry, in which it was identified that the key factors impacting the service delivery of passports are the lack of dedicated resources to the passport processing unit and the need for further knowledge development in the various British Nationality Acts and their applications. While these gaps are the main contributors to the significant delays, it was further identified that a smaller number of passport applications are being affected by incomplete submissions of documents by customers.The passport application process is two-pronged, with a local approval process prior to them being uploaded electronically to the processing site utilized by HMPO for verification of details and the final printing of the passport facility.On Tuesday May 30, 2017, management within the Ministry undertook a reassignment of duties among the personnel within the Registration and Citizenship Department to increase the number of resources that are now dedicated to the processing of passport applications. This, along with the temporary staff that the Ministry recently employed, will assist in decreasing the backlog locally, while efforts are being made to organize the much needed training in the BNA and other HMPO policies for the overall reduction in the inaccuracies being recorded in the application process.While the Office of the Deputy Premier and Ministry of Border Control and Employment regrets the inconvenience caused to its clients in recent months, management remains committed to ensuring that there is marked and noticeable improvements in the processing of passports and the delivery of all services that fall under the Ministry.#magneticmedianews#tcipassportprocessimproves Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#magneticmedianews #tcipassportprocessimproves
Boca Juniors’ legend Carlos Tevez, was the unofficial spokesman for his squad and accused Conmebol of forcing them to play the final.Right after the Boca Juniors bus was vandalized earlier this Saturday outside Monumental Stadium, the images of Carlos Tevez were constant both before and after the match that Conmebol ultimately decided to postpone.But as more details have emerged throughout the night, the club legend was one of the few people who were in the middle of the situation and was able to speak up against the powers that be after the shameful way in which Boca Juniors was treated.The fact that they were playing at River Plate’s own stadium was somehow viewed as a perfect opportunity for Conmebol to think they had more power over all the Boca player, even after the evident physical problems they suffered after the incident while going into the stadium on the bus.There were even alarming reports that when projectiles started hitting the vehicle, the driver fainted as the River Plate fans started throwing objects to the bus.Los de Boca les iban cantando desde el bus pic.twitter.com/8nWjQJEYYU— HumorFPC (@HumorFPC) November 24, 2018“(I was out), (Boca VP Horacio) Paolini grabbed hold of the wheel until I was able to react once again and did what I could to get the boys into the stadium,” said the bus driver whom everybody knows as ‘El Gringo’ to Diario La Nacion.“It could have been a tragedy. I remember seeing some rocks but then I can’t remember anything.”“I react once again, I grab the steering wheel firmly and I tell them that I am fine. It was a moment where I was without air. The worst part was over at Quinteros and Libertador, that was a massive attack. After we passed the rotunda it was as if an army was waiting for us.”“To me the zone was freed up. We came to play a football match, not to go to war,” he added.Carlos Tévez: “Si lo de hoy fuese Boca, River ya tendría la Copa…”. pic.twitter.com/l4AYXhEfxT— Invictos (@InvictosSomos) November 25, 2018But the most surprising statement came from Boca legend Carlitos Tevez, who came out to speak with the press in two separate occasions.The first one was to tell their families that mostly everybody was okay, but he mentioned abuse from Conmebol in both of the times he spoke with several members of the media.Match Preview: River Plate vs Boca Juniors Boro Tanchev – September 1, 2019 It is time for one of the most intense derby games in the world, as River Plate and Boca Juniors go head-to-head tonight at 22:00 (CET).“All they (Conmebol) cared about at that moment was for the match to be played, and we had our own skipper in the hospital with serious injuries,” said Tevez at first to Fox Sports.“All they cared at that moment was the fact that there were presidents from several confederations and even the FIFA president.”“It was a complete disgrace because Conmebol behaved very poorly with us, and this is a personal opinion because I don’t want to involve Boca in what I have to say about them.”“I say all this because they were forcing us to play the match. They should instead give River the cup and that’s it, we don’t play at all.”“We needed to go out and speak for the match to be canceled, or it would’ve been played if we hadn’t done that.””Si fuese Boca, ya estábamos afuera…” sentenció Carlos Tevez desde el Monumental y comentó lo que pasó en el 2015. pic.twitter.com/14jlnnqmxj— SportsCenter (@SC_ESPN) November 24, 2018“It’s the people up top who decided what was fair, we are all sad because football lost today and I think we all sinned as a country,” added Tevez on the second exchange with Fox Sports.“This was supposed to be a celebration and that’s the only way we needed to experience it. Leaving like this can’t be good for anyone.”“We changed our clothes three times and if we forfeited the match, River were the ones who were getting the trophy, that’s the reason we got ready to play.”“Marcelo Gallardo was very smart, he came to see that everybody was okay and if we needed anything.”“But I have to say that I can’t forget about the 2015 incident, when the River players stated that the Boca squad never approached to see how they were doing. I didn’t see any River players coming to ask us if we were okay,” he concluded.El momento en que #MarceloGallardo se acerca a hablar con #Tevez.

About 200 people gathered at the Temple of Praise in Southeast, D.C. on Jan. 27 for the funeral service of Vivian Marrow, according to Marrow’s sister.Marrow, 68, a wheelchair bound resident, was murdered on Jan. 16 after being caught in the crossfire of a neighborhood shooting in Southeast, D.C.Vivian Marrow, a disabled woman, was shot and killed in the District on Jan. 16. (Courtesy photo)“It was packed,” Renee Green, a resident of Woodbridge, Va., told the AFRO. “I guess the whole neighborhood was empty because they were all there.”Green, 63, said that even though her sister was confined to a scooter, the mother of three, grandmother of 12 and great grandmother of 25, spent her days sitting outside of her home chatting with neighbors and helping others when she could.She was known as the “Candy Lady” around the 2400 block of Elvans Road, SE where she had lived alone for going on 30 years, Green said.On Jan. 16 around 10:16 a.m., Marrow was out front of her apartment complex heading to a local grocery store when she was gunned down after being caught in the middle of a violent altercation, D.C. police said.Officials released video surveillance of the incident on Jan. 18. The video shows Marrow riding her wheelchair along the front of her apartment complex when two men ran around the corner. Shots are fired and Marrow is struck.“She couldn’t run, duck a bullet if she tried, they ran in between where she was,” said Green, the youngest of Marrow’s three siblings. “It was senseless.”Green said Marrow was the “jokester” in the family. She grew up in Southwest, D.C. and lived with her mother Justine Brown. Marrow’s father passed away when she was 8-years-old from liver complications.Decades ago, Marrow was hit by a bus in D.C., crushing her legs. She struggled with mobility after the accident and her disability caused her to experience depression which she treated with counseling and medication, her sister said.“That took a lot of her youth in terms of working,” Green explained. She said Marrow who she nicknamed, “Big Red” had difficulty in the workforce. “She wasn’t able to get out there and get a job like the rest of us were able to.”Nonetheless Marrow persevered and did her best to stay active. She would leave her home on her scooter and travel around the area often.Green said the crash made her sister appreciate life more and led to her being a helpful member of the community, assisting others whenever she was able, “giving her last” sometimes.“She didn’t have a lot to do but if she could feed you, by God she would do that.”Now, Green and her family are hoping the death of Marrow will help put an end to the ongoing violence in D.C. So far, the Marrow has been the only homicide with the area of Evans Road, SE this year. The city had a total of eight homicides in 2017 as of Feb. 1.“This incident, the way it happened, I just know this won’t go away. They will try to do something about it,” Green said.Police are still investigating the murder or Marrow, but Green is hopeful her sister’s killing will encourage authorities to improve the living conditions of D.C. ghettos. She said the gun violence stems from the amount of illegal firearms easily accessible in the District. “You can’t shake everybody down. More police? What can you do,” she questioned.The current District homicide rate is up 14 percent as of Feb. 1, according to The Metropolitan Police Department’s website.The department did not immediately respond to the AFRO’s request for comment on the increase in murders.
