Earlier this week, Hanna appeared before Magistrate Samuel McKinney where he pleaded guilty to a charge of stealing by reason of service.According to reports, Hanna received $50,500 from Tariana Ceremy between September 2007 and September 2012, under the assumption that he was selling a lot in Tellie Court, off Cowpen Road. However, it turned out that Hanna was not owner of the property and cheated the woman into a bogus property sale.Hanna is the same contractor who was involved in the controversial multi-million dollar BAMSI contract to build a facility in Andros. However, after the institute’s dorm was set on fire, officials discovered that Hanna never paid all the risk insurance. This also affected taxpayer’s money.Magistrate McKinney has now ordered Hanna to refund the woman $25,000 by September 8 and pay the balance of $25,500 by November 30th or be remanded at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services.The Bahamas government has yet to recover the money from the BAMSI contract.Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher#MagneticMediaNews Recommended for you BAMSI got too much, PM Minnis critical of PLP spending in Natl Address messagelast_img read more

After Zero failure Shah Rukh Khan gone on sabbatical

first_imgShah Rukh Khan as Bauua Singh in ZeroTwitterFor the past four years, Shah Rukh Khan has really been struggling to live up to his ‘King of Bollywood’ tag. The burden of back-to-back failures seems to have been crushing the superstar’s confidence with each passing day and it is quite evident from his current choices as well. Even the projects that he had immense faith in had turned out to be a dud at the box office and it looks like the wounded superstar has gone on sabbatical from movies.According to Bollywood Hungama, “Shah Rukh Khan is flooded with a lot of scripts but is taking his time to decide what project to embark on and is not in the mood to work on anything related to acting anytime soon.”After Zero failure, Shah Rukh Khan was so shaken up that he walked out of Rakesh Sharma biopic titled Saare Jahan Se Achha due to the space angle. The film’s writer Anjum Rajabali had said that SRK didn’t walk out of the project but because he was too shocked by the failure of Zero.Till now, Shah Rukh Khan hasn’t announced his new film yet. However, it was reported that he has partnered his production company Red Chillies Entertainment with Netflix to create not one or two but three web projects.Meanwhile, the box office success of Badla starring Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu has brought some respite to Shah Rukh Khan who had produced it. The movie has been well received by both critics and audience alike and the positive word of mouth has reflected on its overall film collection.It remains to be seen if SRK would be able to bounce back again in the mad race of box office and score a much-awaited hit to his name to break the jinx.last_img read more

Is it the end of road for once unchallenged Congress leader Roshan

first_imgShivajinagar MLA R Roshan BaigtwitterIt seems like the tides are against the senior Congress legislator and former minister R Roshan Baig, who was once the undisputed leader from Bengaluru’s Muslim dominated Shivajinagar area.Baig, who was suspended by the Congress party on Tuesday, June 18 for anti-party activities, stands on shaky ground. The disgruntled MLA had turned against the party leadership for its poor performance in the state and for not granting him a cabinet position.Shortly after the exit polls for the 2019 elections hinted at a huge defeat for Congress in the state, Baig had dropped hints of quitting Congress allegedly to join BJP. He also asked the people from Muslim communities to support the BJP, if the situation arises. But with his name tagged into the multi-crore IMA ponzi scam that has defrauded over 36,000 investors, the BJP has declared Baig persona non grata for his affiliation with the fraudulent firm, meaning that he is no more welcome at the saffron party.With the Congress against him and the BJP shutting him for his involvement in the scam, the seven-time MLA is on a tight spot. While talking to the media on Wednesday, he slammed the party leaders like Siddaramaiah for his suspension while sticking firm on his ground. He accused the party of adopting double standards over action against rebel leaders.Baig said that he has not involved in any anti-party activities claiming that he is a worker of Indian National Congress (INC) and not Siddaramaiah’s Congress. He further claimed that all his take on the party leadership is based on truth. However, Baig said that he will consult with his colleagues and senior leaders Ramalinga Reddy, HK Patil, Mallikarjun Kharge and KH Muniyappa on his next move. IMA director Mohammed Mansoor Khan with Shivajinagar MLA R Roshan Baig and Karnataka CM HD KumaraswamyfacebookEven though, the Shivajinagar legislator refuted of having any links with IMA or its members, the state revenue minister RV Deshpande had disclosed that IMA director Mansoor Khan had met him in May through Baig for a NOC on Rs 600 crore loan from a bank. In an alleged audio clip, Khan had accused Baig of taking Rs 400 crores from him and not returning it as he did not get a party ticket, which Baig has completely denied.last_img read more
