HRW ‘Hrvatska ilegalno i nasilno vraća migrante u BiH’

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 10:28

Hrvatska policija vraća migrante nazad u Bosnu i Hercegovinu, u nekim slučajevima i nasilno, ne dajući im priliku zatražiti azil, objavila je u utorak organizacija Human Rights Watch (HRW).

Ta organizacija sa sjedištem u New Yorku razgovarala je s 20 ljudi, uključujući 11 glava obitelji i jednim dječakom bez pratnje, a oni su otkrili da ih je hrvatska policija deportirala u Bosnu i Hercegovinu bez procesuiranja njihovih slučajeva, nakon što ih je uhitila duboko u hrvatskom teritoriju.

Njih šesnaestero, među njima i žene i djeca, tvrde kako ih je policija tukla pendrecima i udarala, ukrala im novac i ukrala im ili uništila mobitele.

“Hrvatska ima obavezu zaštititi tražitelje azila i migrante”, ističe Lydia Gall, istražiteljica HRW-a za Balkan i istočnu Europu.

“Umjesto toga, hrvatska policija žestoko batina tražitelje azila i vraća ih prema granici”.

Svih 20 ispitanika tvrdi da su ih pritvorili ljudi koji su se identificirali kao hrvatska policajci ili su nosili takve odore. Sedamnaestero je dalo dosljedne opise policijskih kombija kojima su prevedeni do granice. Jedna majka i kći su se vozili u policijskom automobilu. Dvoje je reklo da je policija pucala u zrak, a petero da su policajci bili maskirani.

Ovi izvještaju pridružuju se sve većem broju dokaza o zloupotrebi hrvatske policije na granicama, zaključuje HRW.

Ta organizacija osnovana 1978. u prosincu 2016. dokumentirala je, kako navodi, slična zlostavljanja hrvatskih policajaca na granici sa Srbijom. Ured visokog povjerenika Ujedinjenih naroda za izbjeglice (UNHCR) u kolovozu ove godine objavio je kako je primio informacije da je Hrvatska od početka godine u Srbiju i Bosnu i Hercegovinu vratila 2.500 migranata, ponekad nasilno i uz krađu njhove imovine.

Premijer Andrej Plenković je u rujnu, odgovarajući na poziv povjerenika Vijeća Europe za ljudska prava da istraži te optužbe, odbacio da je došlo do zloupotreba, te je doveo u pitanje izvore tih informacija, piše HRW.

Policija u Donjem Lapcu, na granici s BiH, odbila je hrvatskoj pučkoj pravobraniteljici Lori Vidović omogućiti pristup policijskim zapisnicima o tretmanu prema migrantima i poručila joj da je djelovala u skladu sa zakonom, dodaje organizacija.

Ministar unutarnjih poslova Davor Božinović pismeno je 4. prosinca odgovorio na detaljne opise do kojih je došao HRW. Božinović je kazao da su ti dokazi nedovoljni da bi doveli do optužnica, da se ne mogu potvrditi i da migranti optužuju hrvatsku policiju u nadi da će im to pomoći da uđu u Hrvatsku. Naglasio je da njegovo ministarstvo ne podržava bilo kakvu vrstu nasilja ili netolerancije policajaca.

Hrvatska s BiH ima bilateralni sporazum o vraćanju migranata koji joj dopušta da šalje nazad državljane trećih zemalja bez prava boravka u državi. Prema podacima ministarstva sigurnosti BiH, Hrvatska u sklopu tog sporazuma između siječnja i 27. studenoga vratila 493 ljudi, od kojih su 265 bili turski državljani. Nijedna od osoba koje je HRW ispitao nisu prošli službenu proceduru prije no što su vraćeni preko granice.

Protivno zakonima EU i konvencijama

Vraćanje tražitelja azila preko granice bez razmatranja njihovih slučajeva protivno je zakonu o azilu Europske unije, Povelje EU o temeljnim pravima i UN-ovoj Konvenciji o statusu izbjeglica iz 1951. godine, naglašava HRW.

HRW poziva hrvatske vlasti da provedu temeljitu i transparentnu istragu tvrdnji o zlostavljanju i da oni koji su mu pribjegavali za to odgovaraju. Vlasti bi trebale uspostaviti potpunu suradnju s pravobraniteljicom, što zahtijeva državno zakonodavstvo i najbolje prakse neovisnih institucija za ljudska prava.

Europska komisija treba pozvati Hrvatsku, članicu EU-a, da zaustavi i istraži vraćanje tražitelja azila u BiH i tvrdnje o nasilju nad njima. Isto tijelo bi trebalo pokrenuti pravni proces protiv Hrvatske zbog kršenja europskih zakona, dodaje HRW.

Nakon zatvaranja granica na zapadnobalkanskoj ruti 2016. godine, tisuće su migranata ostale blokirane, većinom u Srbiji, te su našli nove rute prema EU.

Ove godine je broj migranata i tražitelja azila u BiH narastao s manje od tisuću, koliko ih je bilo 2017., na otprilike 22,4 tisuće, objavila je Europska komisija. To izvršno europsko tijelo procjenjuje da ih se u BiH trenutno nalazi šest tisuća migranata. Ta je zemlja od 2008. međunarodnu zaštitu dala samo 17, a prošle je godine azil tamo zatražilo 381 ljudi.

BiH ima samo jedan službeni prihvatni centar za tražitelje azila, u blizini Sarajeva, s kapacitetom za samo 156 ljudi.

Migranti u pograničnim gradovima Bihaću i Velikoj Kladuši, gdje je HRW vodio svoje razgovore, smješteni su u privremene ustanove koje vodi Međunarodna organizacija za migrante (IOM) – trošnim zgradama, uređenim skladištima ili bivšim hotelima. Ostali spavaju na otvorenom.

IOM i UNHCR rade na poboljšanju smještaja. EU je namijenila više od devet milijuna eura za humanitarnu pomoć migrantima u Bosni i Hercegovini.

“To što EU šalje humanitarnu pomoć izbjeglicama u BiH ne opravdava ignoriranje nasilja na hrvatskoj granici”, poručila je Gall.

“Bruxelles treba stvoriti pritisak na Zagreb da poštuje europske zakone, istraži navode zlostavljanja i pruži pravedan i efikasan pristup azilu”, zaključila je istražiteljica.

HRW u svom izvještaju daje detaljne iskaze 13 muškaraca, 6 žena i jednog 15-godišnjeg dječaka o tretmanu hrvatske policije.

HEBRANG O MILANOVIĆU “On je beskoristan političar”

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 10:22

Andrija Hebrang u utorak je, gostujući u ‘Novom danu’ N1 televizije, komentirao mogućnost da se Zoran Milanović kandidira za predsjednika države.

Upitan hoće li Milanović imati podršku ljevice, Hebrang kaže da se ljevica, zahvaljujući svojoj lošoj politici, raspala. “Njihov problem je kako nametnuti pojedinca na mjesto predsjednika države. Svako malo izvlače nekoga tko bi mogao biti kandidat. Milanović je izlaz za nuždu, on nema nikakve šanse, čovjek koji nas je u svom mandatu posvadio s Njemačkom zbog zaštite udbaških osuđenika. Kako može takav čovjek, koji svoje stavove i principe stavlja ispred države? Naravno da ne može takav čovjek pobijediti”, smatra Hebrang.

S njim bi, dodaje, Vladi bilo lakše. “On će se prilagoditi. On je prilagodljiv političar, znači beskoristan, i sigurno bi u tom slučaju bio Vladi otpor. Ali Vlada upravo zahvaljujući predsjednici, i politika HDZ-a dobivaju krila i mislim da ne dolazi u obzir da joj se ne da podrška za sljedeći mandat”, poručio je Hebrang.

Muzej realnosti završava humanom prodajom unikatnih lutkica

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 10:11

Simboličnom humanitarnom prodajom unikatnih lutkica koje su bile dio eksponata “Čekajući obitelj” u utorak završava četvrto izdanje Muzeja realnosti, koje se održalo od početka prosinca u zagrebačkom Tunelu Grič.

Posjetitelji će imati priliku družiti se s UNICEF-ovim ambasadoricama dobre volje Bojanom Gregorić Vejzović, Majom Vučić i Mirnom Medaković Stepinac, te kupnjom lutkica, od 18 do 20 sati, pomoći da svako dijete u Hrvatskoj odrasta u toploj i brižnoj obitelji.

Ovogodišnje izdanje Muzeja realnosti ostvareno je kao interaktivna priča koja je, uz pomoć instalacija, virtualne stvarnosti i ‘živih’ eksponata prikazala što znači obitelj diljem svijeta, kako je ona svima važna bez obzira na mjesto rođenja i okolnosti te koliko je udomiteljstvo važno za sretno djetinjstvo djece.

Posjetitelji su mogli ‘upaliti svjetlo’ u Tunelu Grič i time podržati UNICEF-ovu kampanju “Svako dijete treba obitelj” i pomoći osigurati udomiteljsku skrb za djecu bez odgovarajuće roditeljske skrbi.

Krpene lutkice koje će se prodavati su unikatne i rukom šivane, a izradili su ih volonteri kao dio impresivnog eksponata u zatvorenom rukavcu Tunela Grič, kako bi predstavile djevojčice i dječake bez odgovarajuće roditeljske skrbi.

Sredstva od njihove prodaje, koja se održava na 72. rođendan UNICEF-a, prikupljaju se za razvoj udomiteljstva djece i podršku udomiteljskim obiteljima.

“UNICEF-ov Muzej realnosti  u Tunelu Grič povezao je više od 20 000 posjetitelja sa stvarnošću najugroženije djece iz Hrvatske i cijelog svijeta te im na taj način omogućio da svijet pogledaju kroz njihove oči, nakratko zakorače u živote djece koja čekaju obitelj i upale simbolično svjetlo u tunelu stvarnosti”, izvijestili su organizatori.

“Mnogi posjetitelji odlučili su podržati programe za djecu, priključivši se rastućoj obitelji Čuvara djetinjstva, redovnih donatora UNICEF-a, a u isto vrijeme zabilježen je i porast poziva na besplatan broj 0800 8282, na koji se javilo više od 30 potencijalnih udomitelja”, dodali su.

Ovogodišnji Muzej realnosti održava se u sklopu Adventa u Zagrebu, u suradnji s Turističkom zajednicom grada Zagreba, a ulaz je slobodan.

Ovo su najbolji liječnici i liječnice u Hrvatskoj

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 09:55

Portal najdoktor.com objavio je u utorak popis najdoktora ove godine. Kriteriji po kojima je portal birao najbolje doktorice i doktore u 2018. godini su: ukupan broj komentara; odnos broja pozitivnih i negativnih komentara i kvaliteta samih komentara.

Kao i prošlih godina, komentari koji su se odnosili na vrijeme čekanja i osoblje nisu se uzimali u obzir iz razloga što u mnogim slučajevima doktorice i doktori ne mogu birati osoblje niti utjecati na broj pacijentica i pacijenata, navodi se na portalu.

NBA Bogdanovićevih 22 koša u pobjedi Indiane

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 09:36

Bojan Bogdanović je sinoć odigrao još jednu sjajnu utakmicu, on je u pobjedi svojih Indiana Pacersa nad Washington Wizardsima zabio 22 koša, a Dario Šarić je bio solidan u porazu Minnesota Timberwolvesa od Golden State Warriorsa.

Pacers su kod kuće sa 109-101 bili bolji od Washington Wizardsa, upisavši tako svoju četvrtu pobjedu zaredom.

HNK Zagreb godinu zaključuje praizvedbom drame “Svaki tvoj rođendan”

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 09:00

Hrvatsko narodno kazalište u Zagrebu kalendarsku će godinu zaključiti u nedjelju, 30. prosinca praizvedbom drame “Svaki tvoj rođendan” Mire Gavrana u režiji Renea Medvešeka, velikom ansambl predstavom u kojoj nas autor kroz jubilarne okrugle rođendanske proslave svojeg glavnog lika provodi šezdesetogodišnjim razdobljem, od 1957. do danas.

Riječ je o prvom uprizorenju nekoga Gavranova teksta u središnjem nacionalnom teatru, a napisan je posebno po narudžbi za zagrebački HNK.

Svakih deset godina Zagrepčanin Marijan slavi svoj rođendan. I svakih deset godina okuplja se Marijanova obitelj na rođendanskoj proslavi. “Njegove rođendane pratimo od 1957. pa  sve do 2017. godine, kada navršava sedamdeset godina”, stoji u najavi.

Tijekom svih tih desetljeća Marijan je odrastao, završio fakultet i oženio se. I dok je Marijan u sretnom braku, svi njegovi rođaci i prijatelji imaju nesređene odnose, mnogi se rastavljaju, dok neki varaju svoje žene s bliskim prijateljicama.

Nakon što mu 1997. godine umire žena, Marijan se prvo povlači u sebe, izbjegava ljude i ne javlja se na telefon, no uoči svojega šezdesetog rođendana bit će u vezi s mladom kćeri svoga bivšega poslovnog partnera, dok ga za njegov sedamdeseti rođendan zatičemo kako kani objaviti vjenčanje sa svojom starom ljubavi. No, niz nepredviđenih događaja osujetit će njihovu nakanu…

Ulogu Marijana tumači Luka Dragić, a u ostalim ulogama glume Goran Grgić, Mislav Čavajda, Daria Lorenzi Flatz, Ana Begić Tahiri, Olga Pakalović, Vlasta Ramljak, Silvio Vovk, Luca Anić, Jadranka Đokić, Krešimir Mikić, Iva Mihalić, Ivana Boban, Vanja Matujec, Alen Šalinović, Ivan Glowatzky, Dora Lipovčan, Ivan Colarić i Ivan Jončić.

Sabor danas raspravlja o smanjenju broja agencija i zavoda

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 08:20

Hrvatski sabor, koji odrađuje posljednji tjedan prije redovne zimske stanke, u utorak će raspraviti nekoliko zakona koji slijede Vladinu nakanu da smanji broj agencija, fondova i zavoda.

Izmjenama zakona o sustavu civilne zaštite, o radiološkoj i nuklearnoj sigurnosti i o protuminskom djelovanju, predlaže se da MUP preuzme poslove Državne uprave za zaštitu i spašavanje, odnosno Državnoga zavoda za radiološku i nuklearnu sigurnost i Hrvatskog centra za razminiranje.

Radi ponovnog osnivanja Državnoga inspektorata koji će objediniti inspekcije koje sada postoje u više ministarstva, mijenja se Zakon o zaštiti zraka i uređuje prijenos poslova koje sada obavlja inspekcija Ministarstva zaštite okoliša.

Izmjenama Zakona o zaštiti okoliša, Ministarstvo zaštite okoliša preuzet će imovinu, sredstva za rad, financijska sredstva, prava i obveze te službenike Hrvatske agencije za okoliš i prirodu. Oni s 1. siječnja 2019. godine postaju državni službenici ili namještenici,. Time će se, ocijenjeno je, pridonijeti racionalnijoj organizaciji i učinkovitijem poslovanju, a sve će za posljedicu imati ukupno smanjenje troškova i institucionalno jačanje kapaciteta.

Sabor redovno jesensko zasjedanje zaključuje u petak glasovanjem o 30-ak zakona koje je raspravio ovaj i proteklih tjedana.

Prije toga, u srijedu, treba raspraviti Deklaraciju o položaju Hrvata u Bosni i Hercegovini i europskom putu BiH, a u četvrtak prijedlog zakona o udžbenicima u osnovnoj i srednjoj školi koji bi učenicima trebao olakšati školske torbe i donijeti više digitalne nastave, a roditeljima manje troškove nabave udžbenika.

Soroseva zaklada protjerana iz Mađarske, ali ne odustaje

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 08:10

Zaklada američkog milijardera Georgea Sorosa morala je napustiti Budimpeštu nakon intenzivne kampanje mađarske vlade protiv nje, ali najavljuje da neće odustati od svog rada u Mađarskoj.

Usprkos tome što je izbačena iz Mađarske u kojoj je 1984. otvorila svoj prvi ured, Zaklada Otvoreno društvo smatra da njezina misija nije bila neuspješna.

“Rekao bih da je naša misija pred ispitima i izazovima, ali ne odustajemo”, kazao je Goran Buldioski, voditelj novog regionalnog ureda Zaklade u Berlinu.

“Preselili smo ured, ali naš rad u Mađarskoj neće se smanjiti”, poručio je, dodavši kako se “mentalno i programski nisu preselili”.

Ono što se drastično promijenilo za Buldioskog i njegov tim njihovo je radno i životno okruženje.

Plaćenici

Zaposlenici Zaklade i Srednjoeuropskog sveučilišta, koje je također osnovao Soros, prošle su godine bili pod ogromnim pritiskom mađarskog premijera Viktora Orbana, koji je nekoć i sam dobio Sorosevu stipendiju za studij na Oxfordu.

Orban je Sorosa, židova porijeklom iz Budimpešte, optužio za orkestriranje priljeva migranata u Europu, a više od dvije tisuće njegovih suradnika proglasio je “plaćenicima”.

Makedonac Buldioski kazao je kako je nekim zaposlenicima nakon javnih kampanja protiv Zaklade postalo neugodno reći za koga rade jer su strahovali stigmatiziranja i napada.

“Bilo je dana kad smo se osjećali kao u Beskrajnom danu”, rekao je misleći na holivudsku komediju u kojoj lik glumca Bill Murraya iz dana u dan živi isti dan.

“Neutemeljeno smo bili napadani… a svaki dan je donio novi napad, novu kampanju. Većinom iz političkih razloga”.

Prema pisanju BBC-ja, mađarska vlada je na kampanju protiv Sorosa prošle godine potrošila oko 19 milijuna eura. Kampanja je uključivala plakate s natpisima poput “Ne dajmo Sorosu da se posljednji smije”, kao i postere na podovima budimpeštanskih tramvaja s licem milijardera po kojem su putnici hodali.

Britanski državni medij piše kako je mađarsku vladu vjerojatno najviše razljutio niz Sorosevih izjava proteklih godina u kojem je dao podršku kontroliranoj imigraciji u Europu, SAD i Kanadu.

U članku za politički časopis Foreign Policy u srpnju 2016. Soros je sugerirao da bi Europa mogla prihvatiti 300 tisuća izbjeglica godišnje, izravno iz Turske, Jordana i Libanona, smatrajući to rješenjem za nedostatak radne snage na kontinentu. No, kao i mađarska vlada, naglasio je da programi raspodjele izbjeglica trebaju biti proizvoljni, a ne obavezni, prenosi BBC.

Briga oko sigurnosti

Zaklada je nakon kampanje počela strahovati jesu li u Mađarskoj podaci koje posjeduje o svojim partnerima na sigurnom, poput kontakata ili bankovnih računa.

“Ne vjerujete li sustavu i demokraciji, odnosno erodirajućoj demokraciji u kojoj djelujete, počinjete misliti da ste odgovorni i prema svojim partnerima. Ne želim ostaviti njihove podatke na mjestima na kojima ne možemo garantirati njihovu sigurnost”, kazao je Buldioski.

Zaklada, koja ima godišnji proračun nešto preko milijardu dolara i zagovara ljudska prava, pravdu i demokraciju, u svibnju je donijela konačnu odluku o prestanku rada u Mađarskoj i preseljenju u Njemačku. Mađarska vlada je na to odgovorila da “neće roniti krokodilske suze”.

Baza u Berlinu

Danas u Berlinu djeluje više od 80 ljudi, a taj bi broj trebao narasti na 150 do 200 zaposlenika, otkriva Buldioski.

Berlin je bio prirodan odabir za novu adresu zbog svoje kulture civilnih društava, istaknuo je Makedonac, dodavši kako je riječ i o velikoj europskoj prijestolnici, ali i gradu simbolu nekadašnje podjele između komunističkog istoka i kapitalističkog zapada.

“Ovdje u Berlinu možemo reći da Europska unija ima određene standarde i vrijednosti, a one su jake kolika je najslabija krika”.

“Trenutno osjećamo da je najslabija karika Mađarska”, zaključuje Buldioski.

Osnaživanje demokracija

On smatra kako u Mađarskoj i drugim državama bivšeg istočnog bloka nakon njihovog ulaska u EU nije učinjeno dovoljno po pitanju sudjelovanja građana u mladim demokracijama.

Neke od tih nacija okreću se nacionalizmu, a razočarani građani, mnogi od njih visoko obrazovani, jednostavno odlaze, upozorio je Buldioski.

“U drugim scenarijima bili bi lideri u domovini, a ne imigranti u inozemstvu. To su pitanja o kojima se ne govori”.

Njihovo iskustvo je i upozorenje za zapadna društva da ne uzimaju demokracije zdravo za gotovo, smatra voditelj ureda.

“Definitivno ne smijemo zanemariti što se događa s demokratskim društvima po pitanju suspenzije ljudskih prava, rasta populista i onih s autoritarnim težnjama na zapadu Europe”.

“Mislim da je to paneuropski problem”, zaključuje Buldioski.

Britanska premijerka danas u Berlinu s Angelom Merkel

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 08:05

Britanska premijerka Theresa May sastat će se u utorak u Berlinu s njemačkom kancelarkom Angelom Merkel, a središnja tema razgovora biti će zabrinutost britanskih zastupnika oko njezina sporazuma s Europskom unijom o izlasku Britanije iz članstva, objavio je u ponedjeljak navečer ured britanske premijerke.

May će se sastati s drugim europskim čelnicima kako bi dobila dodatna jamstva oko Brexita i time ublažila zabrinutost u britanskom parlamentu zbog sporazuma kojeg je postigla s Europskom unijom, nakon što je iznenada odustala od stavljanja tog sporazuma na glasanje u parlamentu.

Britanska premijerka u ponedjeljak je iznenada odgodila parlamentarno glasanje o brexitu planirano za utorak, gurajući britanski plan o izlasku iz EU-a u kaos i priznajući da je suočena s porazom.

Premijerkin potez uoči planiranog izjašnjavanja parlamenta otvara niz mogućih scenarija, od Brexita bez dogovora do još jednog referenduma o članstvu u Uniji, smatra Reuters.

U pitanju je i njezina premijerska pozicija, jer je oporbene stranke poziva da odstupi.

“Ako nastavimo i sutra glasamo, dogovor će biti odbijen s velikom većinom”, rekla je May parlamentu, ponovno ističući kako misli da je sporazum dobar. “Stoga ćemo odgoditi glasanje zakazano za sutra kako u ovome trenutku ne bi dijelili parlament”, dodala je.

Datum novog parlamentarnog glasanja o planu za Brexit premijerke Therese May ovisit će o tome kada će njezina vlada dobiti jamstva EU-a koja bi zadovoljila parlament, rekao je u ponedjeljak njen glasnogovornik.  Dodao je da vlada ne namjerava odgoditi Brexit niti će ulaziti u proces kojim bi pokušala osigurati dodatna jamstva Unije osim ako ne smatra da ih može dobiti.

Priznajući da je suočena s porazom i s premijerskom pozicijom u jasnoj opasnosti May je rekla kako će sada otići ponovno u EU i tražiti jamstva za tzv. Irski sigurnosni mehanizam. On je zamišljen kako se ne bi obnovila tvrda granica na Irskom otoku kao rezultat Brexita, ali ga mnogi u britanskom parlamentu vide kao ostavljanje britanske pokrajine unutar gospodarske i regulatorne orbite EU-a.

FOOTBALL LEAKS: How the Croatian Football Federation and FC Rijeka breached FIFA rules during transfers of young Nigerian players

Tor, 11/12/2018 - 08:00

By Blaž Zgaga (Nacional), contributions by Stefano Vergine (L’Espresso) and Jeroen Wester (NRC Handelsblad)

FIFA sanctioned the Croatian Football Federation with a 16,000 Swiss Franc fine for the transfer of Nigerian player Goodness Ohiremen Ayaji outside of the Transfer Management System (TMS) in December 2017.

Simultaneously, a decision on a proposed fine of 10,000 Swiss Francs in a case against FC Rijeka for the transfer of same player was made, although the club denies this.

However, Football Leaks documents obtained by Der Spiegel and shared with Nacional, L’Espresso, NRC Handelsblad and other partners in the European Investigative Collaborations (EIC) network reveal this single transfer is only the tip of the iceberg.

Similar wrongdoings happened during the transfers of six additional Nigerian players who had “first registration” by the Croatian Football Federation for FC Rijeka between 2012 and 2016, despite first being registered with the Nigerian Football Federation.

Some Nigerian players moved to Croatia as minors, where they waited until their 18th birthday and “first registration” with Rijeka. Also there is a possible conflict of interest with the chief executive officer of FC Rijeka, Damir Mišković, who is also the vice-president of the Croatian Football Federation and the honorary consul of Croatia to Nigeria.

He signed a “memorandum of understanding” regarding a partnership with the Nigerian Football Federation in 2014, as a representative of the company Orlean Invest West Africa Limited, but he manages also company Orlean Invest Africa Limited which founded Football College Abuja, a main recruitment base for Nigerian football players who ended up in the Croatian coastal city of Rijeka.

Documents show that young Nigerian talents from Abuja were first registered with the Nigerian Football Federation. When they turned 18 years old, they were officially transferred to FC Rijeka, with the assistance of the Croatian Football Federation, which registered them again as “first registration”. In this way the Croatian Federation and the club breached FIFA regulations, as such transfers of players should be executed as “international transfers”, with player’s International Transfer Certificates.

FIFA has opened many investigations against Croatian, Italian and Nigerian football federations, against Football College Abuja and Croatian and Italian football clubs FC Rijeka, Spezia Calcio and AS Roma in relation to the transfers of young players from Nigeria. Some inquiries have finished already and the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has sanctioned breaches, while other investigations are ongoing.

Croatian Damir Mišković is an operative and a front for one of richest and least known Italian billionaires, Gabriele Volpi, who owns the Stichting Social Sport, registered in the Netherlands, behind a trust in Bahamas, managed by Panamanian company. Volpi is also the second major shareholder of one of the biggest Italian banks, Carige. He was prosecuted in the 1980s in connection with the bankruptcy of his company, but never served a sentence because of a general amnesty in Italy. He was prosecuted again this year in Italy for money-laundering. After Volpi sold 70 percent shares of FC Rijeka to his partner Mišković in December 2017, the latter did not appear in corporate registry. The shareholders of the Croatian club are listed as his daughters with a permanent address in United Arab Emirates.

It all started in 2012, when the City of Rijeka decided to privatize its main football club. The Italian billionaire Gabriele Volpi (75) obtained 70 percent of shares and appointed his operative Croatian, Damir Mišković (53), with a then permanent address in Abuja, Nigeria, as chief executive officer. He invested millions of euros in this club, which won Croatian the First Football League in the season 2016/17. But Football Leaks documents reveal there was another, shadowy agenda behind this.

In the same year, 2012, Gabriele Volpi founded the Football College Abuja. “[It] is the brainchild of Gabriele Volpi, the chairman of Orlean Invest Africa Limited,” Clement Olakumbi Titiloye, the administrator of this college said in interview to the Nigerian press in 2016. He explained that a goal of a college is to help financially challenged kids, nurture them, bring out their talent and give them a chance to take care of their families in the future. Kids do not pay any scholarship and their admission is totally free. “Eight of them are now in Europe. Two of them are in Roma in Italy and some other boys are going to join them in future. Sadiq Umar and Nura Abdullahi are the two players playing in Roma currently, while some are going to join them later. We also have four boys in Serie B, La Spezia Calcio, Italy – David Okereke, Ayodeji Samuel, Theophilus Aondofa and Abdullahi Suleiman. We are funded by Orlean Invest Africa owned by Mr. Gabriele Volpi and we are also supported by two clubs – La Spezia Calcio of Italy and FC Rijeka of Croatia,” Titiloye added.

Spezia Calcio is yet another club owned by Gabriele Volpi. Underage Nigerian players from his college, based in Abuja, often traveled to youth football tournaments in Italy and Croatia and the Croatian club Rijeka sent its football trainers to Abuja.

But the former general director of FC Rijeka Vlado Čohar explained to Nacional that some of the Nigerian players moved to Croatia while they were still minors, and waited there until they reached 18 years of age, when it was needed to register them with FC Rijeka.

FIFA investigates Croatian Football Federation and FC Rijeka

Analyses of players from FC Rijeka reveal that between 2012 and 2017, the club registered at least 15 young Nigerian players, mostly from Football College Abuja. Many of them were registered in violation of FIFA regulations.

The FIFA Players’ Status and Governance Department first noticed wrongdoings in May 2015, during the transfer of the player Goodness Ohiremen Ajayi (24), who was registered with Rijeka in January 2013, when he turned 18. “It was noted that the player Goodness Ohiremen Ajayi (the “player”) was transferred from Nigeria to Rijeka and registered as a professional with the latter club,” a message said, but his transfer was not processed in the FIFA Transfer Management System.

Investigators at FIFA soon requested responses from FC Rijeka and the Croatian Football Federation (CFF) in their formal inquiry. They found several contradictions in the responses from Rijeka. Whereas the club states that the player has not been registered with any club before, Rijeka provides a letter from the Nigerian Football Federation according to which the player was registered in Nigeria and played for Football College Abuja. FIFA also found that Football College Abuja played in the Nigerian Premier League and that it has an account in the FIFA transfer management system (TMS) with approximately 15 transfers.

Rijeka then provided a paper copy of the International Transfer Certificate issued by the Nigerian Football Federation, which confirms that the player was registered with the Nigerian Football Federation. Finally, whereas Rijeka states that the player signed a professional contract with Rijeka, the approval for the player’s registration from the Croatian Football Federation indicates the amateur status of the player. “In view of the above, it seems that the player was transferred as a professional to Rijeka outside of TMS in breach of the FIFA Regulations,” FIFA inquiry concluded and proposed a fine in the sum of 10,000 Swiss Francs to be paid by the Croatian club.

Almost identical findings were written in a case against the Croatian Football Federation, where Damir Mišković is the vice-president, and which was fined with 16,000 Swiss Francs in December 2017. FIFA confirmed disciplinary sanctions against CFF and Rijeka were made in December 2017, but the club responded, that they are still waiting on a decision by the disciplinary committee in this case.

Football Leaks documents reveal the Goodness Ohiremen Ajayi transfer was not an isolated case. Actually, it seems that a special business model to transfer Nigerian players to European clubs existed in Volpi’s and Mišković’s little football empire. At least six additional players from Football College Abuja were transferred in a similar way to Rijeka.

However, a list of players which Football College Abuja sent to FIFA in 2017 show that the date of birth of Goodness Ohiremen Ajayi is 6 October 1996, which – if true – would mean that he was only 16 years old during this registration, which would present another breach of FIFA regulations on the transfer of minors. Many other documents sent by Rijeka, CFF and Nigerian Football Federation to FIFA show another date of his birth – 6 October 1994, which seems to be legally valid.

New investigation against Football College Abuja and Nigerian Football Federation

On 17 March 2017 FIFA opened new inquiries against the same network. This time both the Football College Abuja and the Nigerian Football Federation came under investigation for more serious breach of FIFA regulations – for the alleged transfer of minors without prior approval of FIFA Players’ Status Sub-Committee. Violations during transfers of underage players can bring harsher sanctions to all parties involved.

“We understand that your club, Football College Abuja, runs an academy as defined in the FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players (“the Regulations”), named ‘Abuja Football College Academy’. According to our information, it appears that a number of players (including minor players), may have been internationally transferred from your club and/or your academy to other associations including but not limited to Italy and Croatia. We understand that your club may have entered into agreements (sometimes against payment) for the international transfer of these players,” FIFA wrote to the subjects of this inquiry.

“In addition, it would appear that your club and/or academy may have entered into an agreement with a company named “Stichting Social Sport” which may possibly constitute a breach of art. 18bis and art. 18ter of the Regulations,” investigators added. These two articles – 18bis and 18ter – refer to FIFA’s prohibition of third party influence on club and third party ownership of the economic rights of football players, which have been in place since January 2015.

The administrator of Football College Abuja answered on 31 March 2017. In his response Titiloye wrote: “As a premise, I would highlight that The Football College Abuja is an academy, not a Football Club. There is no distinction between Football College Abuja and Abuja Football College Academy’ (as referenced in your letter) and to date, no association has required us to establish a club.”

And he answered to FIFA’s inquiry with the following: “To the best of my knowledge, The Football College Abuja has never transferred a minor to any club locally or internationally, nor entered into any agreements in that respect; […] Football College Abuja has never formed any transfer agreements for the international transfer of minor players to another association; […] There are no agreements signed by Football College Abuja with Stichting Social Sport.”

He attached a list of 149 young players at Football College Abuja, all of whom were officially registered with the Nigerian Football Federation. Detailed analyses reveal that beside Goodness Ohiremen Ajayi, for which FIFA sanctioned the Croatian Football Federation, there are six additional Nigerian players, who were first registered in Nigeria, and later registered with Rijeka by the Croatian Football Federation, again as “first registration”. The players are Collins Jamilu (24), Olie Kingsly Ndidi (24), Nwolokor David Samuel (22), Solomon Theophilus (22), Muhammed Kabiru (21) and Musa Yusuf (22).

According to the response of FC Rijeka to questions from Nacional, these six players were registered “as free players whose registration (in accordance with the FIFA Regulations) is carried outside the TMS system.”

But how it is possible that they were first registered in Nigeria, and then they received a new “first registration” or “registration as a free player” in Croatia?

FIFA regulations are clear: “Any professional player who is registered with a club that is affiliated to one association may only be registered with a club affiliated to a different association after an International Transfer Certificate (ITC) has been delivered by the former association and the new association has confirmed receipt of the ITC. The ITC procedure must be conducted exclusively via TMS. Any form of ITC other than the one created by TMS shall not be recognized,” says article 8.1.1 of FIFA Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.

The next article says: “A professional player is not eligible to play in official matches for his new club until the new association has confirmed the receipt of the ITC and has entered and confirmed the player registration date in TMS.”

It is important to note that these regulations are important because of training and solidarity compensation which any new football clubs must pay to former clubs which trained a player when he was between 12 and 23 years old. Additionally, for kids under 10 years of age International Transfer Certificates are not required by FIFA.

Therefore, Rijeka, then owned by Volpi and managed by Mišković, transferred at least seven Nigerian young players outside of the FIFA transfer management system.

Also an inconsistency in the dates of birth of Nigerian players exists, which might be understandable due to Nigeria’s weak and corrupt public administration system. Player’s register sent by Football College Abuja to FIFA – and if this information is correct – show that beside Goodness Ohiremen Ajayi, also Olie Kingsly Ndidi and Nwolokor David are younger, and would have been underage during their registration with FC Rijeka.

Italian clubs and federation under investigation

In July 2016 FIFA opened investigations against Italian club AS Roma, semi-finalist of the Champions League 2017/18, and the Italian Football Federation for the alleged transfer of minors without prior approval, which can bring serious sanctions, including a transfer ban for the club.

Of 13 players on the list of the FIFA inquiry regarding alleged transfers outside of the TMS system, five were from Nigeria, and their real dates of birth were unknown to FIFA at that time. One player, Sadiq Umar, started his career in Football College Abuja, where he entered its first class in 2012, and was thus first registered with the Nigerian Football Federation. However, in April 2017, FIFA closed the investigation against AS Roma “due to lack of evidence of any breach”. The result of the inquiry against Italian Football Federation remains unknown. In January 2018 investigators discussed how they will refer the Italian Football Federation to the FIFA Disciplinary Committee.

Yet another case “TCF 1239” was planned to be heard by the Disciplinary Committee in April 2018. It is a case against Spezia Calcio, owned by Gabriele Volpi, which has been connected to breaches of the third party ownership ban imposed by FIFA since January 2015. This case was not about a Nigerian player, but about the Croatian/American player Robert Kristo, whose lawyer held 25 percent of economic rights on his future transfers. FIFA proposed an 81,000 Swiss Francs fine to Spezia Calcio for this violation.

FIFA audited Croatian club Rijeka on the spot

However, this was not an isolated case of third party ownership in Volpi’s and Mišković’s football network. According to the spot audit report on Croatia, which FIFA top officials created in October 2016, after they visited Croatia and inspected clubs and federation, there were more forbidden third party ownership cases signed between Rijeka and Stichting Social Sport, the Dutch foundation which owned 70 percent of FC Rijeka.

Volpi’s Dutch foundation owned 50 percent of the economic rights of players Niko Datković, Andrija Filipović, Mato Miloš and Anas Sharbini. FIFA didn’t find any third party ownership of young Nigerian players who joined Rijeka from Football College Abuja. But in a case of Muhammed Kabiru, investigators found evidence of third party influence, which is also forbidden by FIFA rules.

FIFA also discussed the following Rijeka players where club officials ticked third party ownership on the players, but didn’t up load any contracts to the FIFA computer system, as required: Josip Brezovec, Asmir Jakević, Josip Ivančić, Venčislav Dimitrov Hristov, Ivan Vargić, Florentin Matei and one Nigerian player, who came from Football College Abuja – Jamilu Collins. All these players were transferred after FIFA’s January 2015 ban.

More important and revealing seems to be a discussion FIFA officials had with FC Rijeka executives during their visit in Croatia.

According to the minutes of this meeting, Rijeka doesn’t use the scouting system, and instead they try to get the best minors in region. “Amateur scouts (ex-team mates, friends) who might spot them elsewhere. Also watch Croatian underage teams. No scouting of minors abroad. Don’t engage minors from foreign countries.”

Then general director of FC Rijeka Vlado Čohar explained the story behind the Nigerian players in more detail. “We had a few Nigerian minors who they were unable to register. Part of ownership comes from business based in Nigeria. Brought 10 Nigerian boys and placed in schools – a few Croatians went the other way in exchange.”

The club owner is the consul of Croatia to Nigeria: Damir Mišković, the minutes of the meeting continues.

“Stichting Social Sport is a foundation – not just about sport (also concerned with social projects and development of kids), main goal not to invest huge amount of money in football – just to develop regional sport. Social aspect is the main idea, does a lot of business in Nigeria, HQ is in Lugano, support Rijeka, Spezia Calcio, Pro Recco (water polo, Italy), and some other sports. Professional football is not sole aim – invest in infrastructure. Privately-owned football stadium with training camp. Main sponsors are local firms, try to boost local economy.”

Sporting director deputy Ivan Mance added that they have a good connection with Spezia. “Exchange players – loan players to Spezia to help them develop. Spezia also attend the Kvarner Riviera tournaments.”

They reveal the background of Gabriele Volpi to FIFA’s visitors as well. “President of the company in Africa is president of both Spezia and Rijeka. Chief executive officer of all the companies in Africa, Damir Mišković, and others are in charge of day to day running of Stichting Social Sport (founded and funded by Volpi). Stichting Social Sport is a parent company. Rijeka is one of the daughter companies. Other companies, many based in Africa, are also daughter companies.”

The director, Čohar, concluded that “club is very transparent, invited all members and gave brochure and presentation about club processes, income, etc.“ He added that Mr Mišković became involved in the club in 2012 and that he has since invested around 15 million Euro.

As seen by at least six investigations opened by FIFA against Football College Abuja and other clubs connected to Volpi and Mišković, their football network was an interesting issue for investigators.

Following a visit in Croatia, emails exchanged among them on 10 March 2017, a few weeks before they launched a formal investigation into the Nigerian part of the network, reveal they are slowly coming to the main point.

“We asked Rijeka about this on the Spot Audit – it could be something to follow up on with the Nigerian Football Federation,” one investigator said. “Abuja Football College Academy was set up two years ago, and their main aim was to transfer the sporting rights of their outstanding players to Spezia (Italy) and Rijeka ( Croatia),” said the other.

“My suspicion is that this is a case of minors being transferred from the private academy (not clear if it has a TMS club account) to Italy and Croatia for transfer fees. On the face of it, I don’t think this is third party ownership. We can of course analyse whatever agreements we receive in order to consider that too though. In a separate investigation which is ongoing (TCF 1779), I found information about two minors who were part of that academy and were transferred to Italy,” reveals another exchange.

Those two players were Umar Sadiq and Nura Abdullahi.

For Sadiq they wrote these findings: “Never registered with Nigerian Football Federation (this is confirmed by both a letter from the Nigerian Football Federation and by a sworn affidavit from the player’s mother). First registered in Italy with Lavagnese aged 17 as amateur. Was not entered in Limited Exemption report at the time due to an oversight but subsequently corrected. Transferred domestically to Spezia Calcio, 6 months later, aged 17 as an amateur.”

However, these findings on Umar Sadiq, which probably helped to close the FIFA inquiry against AS Roma in April 2017, are in contradiction to the documents sent by the administrator of Football College Abuja, when he answered to an inquiry that FIFA opened in March 2017. Clement Olakumbi Titiloye sent to FIFA a list of all 149 young players of Abuja College between 2012 and 2016 and clearly wrote that all were registered with Nigerian Football Federation. One of players of Football College Abuja and formally registered with Nigerian Football Federation was – Umar Sadiq.

Gabriele Volpi and Damir Mišković’s offshore empire

But who is Gabriele Volpi, who has attracted much media attention due to his 75 metre-long 75 million-dollar yacht, and who is his right hand man Damir Mišković, who became one of the most important figures in the Croatian city of Rijeka? Where does their money, invested in football clubs and Football College Abuja, comes from and where is it usually hidden? In collaboration with Nacional partners in EIC, Italian L’Espresso and Dutch NRC Handelsblad, we have succeeded in answering these questions.

Besides holding shares in a couple of popular Italian companies such as Moncler and Eataly, Volpi is currently the second major shareholder of Banca Carige, one of the biggest banks in Italy. All these stakes are held through offshore companies. He is also a promoter of a series of millionaire real estate projects in Liguria.

This reads as a financial success story. However, this story has a shadowy part. For example, Volpi was prosecuted and sentenced for three years in prison in the 1980s for the fraudulent bankruptcy of the Medafrica company. But he never served this sentence because of a general amnesty in Italy. In addition to various investigations for tax offenses, Volpi faces the most important and the latest case, which led the Italian prosecutor to file the indictment against him for money-laundering in May 2018. Over half a million euro in cash has been allegedly transferred from Switzerland to Italy by his close associates.

Volpi was also included in an important report by the US Senate committee on homeland security with the title “Keeping Foreign Corruption Out Of The United States”. The 328-page report explores four issues to show how US legislation against money laundering is being circumvented. According to this US senate report, Gabriele Volpi is a key player in one of four cases. Volpi helped the former vice president of Nigeria to get $38 million to the US through Volpi companies and trust companies in Nigeria and Panama. His companies in the British Virgin Islands and the tax haven Liechtenstein are also mentioned in this report.

However, the main source of his wealth are ports and other logistics services and real estate investments in Nigeria, controlled by Orlean Invest West Africa Limited, registered in one of the country’s oil and gas free zones, with no value added tax, no withholding tax, no corporate tax and no capital gains tax. Another company Orlean Invest Africa Limited, which previously had the same name Orlean Invest West Africa Limited, is registered in the tax haven of the Isle of Man today.

Volpi is often popularly referred to as the richest white man in Africa. But Stichting Social Sport, Volpi’s foundation in his football network, is based in the Netherlands.

A few months after the publication of the US Senate research report in February 2010, Panamanian Delanson Services contacted the Rotterdam office of notary and law firm Loyens & Loeff, a huge international company with 1500 employees. The company did so in the capacity of director of The Summer Trust, a trust company under the laws of the Bahamas. For Dutch notaries, foundations are registered with increased risk because they are less transparent than companies with shareholders who have a duty to disclose their figures. Foundations do not have to make disclosures, and legally they have no owner. The tax havens of Panama and the Bahamas also set off alarm bells for notaries, who also have a duty to identify the natural persons behind a company. They are also expected to understand the entire international corporate structure of their “clients”. They can refuse customers with suspicious activities and they must report controversial transactions. However, all these legal requirements by Dutch laws for local notaries and Volpi’s past prosecution, were no obstacle for a Dutch notary to register Volpi’s foundation. When asked by EIC partner NRC Handelsblad about Volpi’s case, the notary declined to answer because of confidentiality clauses.

Nevertheless, joint research of EIC partners reveals that Stichting Social Sport, which owned FC Rijeka and Spezia Calcio, was founded by Bahamian The Summer Trust, which is managed by Panamian Delanson Services Inc. The ultimate beneficial owner behind this international structure is Gabriele Volpi, who on the other hand, with the help of Damir Mišković, founded Football College Abuja, which provided Nigerian young players to these two football clubs, often in violation of FIFA regulations.

But the Dutch foundation hid also some other interesting partners. 

For example, in the first years the foundation Stichting Social Sport was led by Dutch trustee Trustmoore Netherlands BV. Since February 2015 it was managed by another Dutch trustee Zenco Management BV and since March 2017 by Italian Stefano Chisoli. Another Italian citizen Andrea Carollo has been director since June 2016. And it is interesting that both Chisoli and Carollo’s houses were raided by the Italian Guardia di Finanza in May 2018, in the latest money-laundering case which brought Volpi back to the attention of the public.

In 2015, the Stichting Social Sport founded another foundation in Belgium called “Volpi Sportmanship Foundation”. The foundation was dissolved after two years, but among its board members were well-known Italians: Giovanni Tamburi, a banker and business partner of Volpi within Moncler and Eatal, and Franco Carraro, who is a former Italian minister, chairman of the Italian football federation FIGC, chairman of the Italian National Olympic Committee and a current member of the International Olympic Committee.

Volpi’s and Mišković connections extend also to the Nigerian Football Federation. In April 2014 various Nigerian media published a news story detailing how Volpi’s Orlean Invest West Africa Limited managed by Damir Mišković signed a “memorandum of understanding” regarding partnership with the Nigerian Football Federation, which might represent a possible conflict of interest, as another Volpi’s company Orlean Invest Africa Limited founded Football College Abuja, which is under oversight by the Nigerian Football Federation. It seems it is no surprise that both Volpi’s football clubs in Italy and Croatia were the main destination for young Nigerian players.

In March 2016 Mišković gained his diplomatic credentials, when he was appointed as the honorary consul of Croatia to Nigeria.

This is how a suspicious businessmen with a long record of operations in offshore countries met African politics and football officials.

Indeed, in the context of strategic decisions made by the owners, Nigerian boys were brought in”

Gabriele Volpi and Damir Mišković did not answer to many questions about their offshore network behind Stichting Social Sport, nor about the transfers of Nigerian young players from Football College Abuja.

Regarding Disciplinary Committee decisions against FC Rijeka and the Croatian Football Federation for the transfer of Nigerian player Goodness Ohirmen Ayaji outside transfer management system FIFA responded: “The first cases to which you refer were decided in December 2017 and notified to the parties involved. The subject matter is confidential, however, you can contact the club and/or the Croatian Football Federation to request further information.”

The Croatian Football Federation confirmed that sanction was imposed. “We do not have any comment to your question. The sanction was imposed and served by the Croatian Football Federation. This had happened mainly since our registration proceedings had been based on the documents received from the national association of the country which nationality the player concerned holds.”

On the question as to why did the Croatian Football Federation register so many players from Nigeria for FC Rijeka as “first registration”, including an additional six players of Football College Abuja, who were registered firstly with the Nigerian Football Federation, they answered: “All respective registrations had been proceeded in accordance to the relevant provisions of the FIFA Regulations and based on the relevant documents received from the national association of the country which nationality the respective players hold.”

FC Rijeka, on contradiction with FIFA’s response that a decision was made in December 2017, said they are still waiting. “Regarding the registration of Goodness Ohiremen Ajayi and the conduct of disciplinary proceedings against Rijeka before the FIFA Disciplinary Commission, FC Rijeka dismisses and denies any responsibility due to the fact that FC Rijeka was acting in accordance with the FIFA rules and the available documentation.”

“FC Rijeka has requested from Croatian Football Federation (CFF) the first registration of the above-mentioned player and Federation has approved such first registration of the player since the player has never been registered for any other club, including clubs in Nigeria. On the basis of such a request for first registration, CFF has submitted the request to the Nigerian Football Federation to issue International Transfer Certificate, it has also done it with the indication that the player has been a free player. Based on such an official response from the Nigerian Football Federation, CFF has issued the approval for the registration of the player. All this has been notified to the FIFA authorities as well, and the decision on that disciplinary action has not yet been brought,” Rijeka responded. “We believe and expect that a decision will be such that FC Rijeka will be released from any responsibility”.

On the question about the registration of six additional Nigerian players from the Football College Abuja, who were previously registered in Nigeria, the club says “the players are registered for FC Rijeka as free players whose registration (in accordance with the FIFA Regulations) is carried out outside the TMS system.”

“FC Rijeka and the Football College Abuja are not in any particular business relationship. Indeed, FC Rijeka has registered players from Nigeria on a number of occasions as the first player registration in the manner and under the conditions prescribed by the UEFA Regulations,” them club concluded.

The Nigerian Football Federation, which attracted the attention of FIFA because of a power struggle between different factions for the leadership of the federation and was even threatened with exclusion from FIFA this August, did not respond to our questions.

Administrator of Football College Abuja Clement Olakumbi Titiloye answered that the formal status of his organisation within the Nigerian Football Federation is “an academy”. On the question about international transfers of players from Football College Abuja (FIFA decided it has an account in its transfer management system with approximately 15 transfers) and about the transfer of Goodness Ohiremen Ayaji, which led to sanctions against the Croatian Football Federation, he said: “These players traveled without the knowledge and consent of the Academy.”

On the question of the business model to export talented Nigerian players to Spezia and Rijeka, Titiloye answered, that “the academy has never successfully transferred a player abroad due to lack of connections abroad.”

“I am not aware of any third party affiliations or partnership with any organisation,” he responded to a question on third party ownership of players by Stichting Social Sport.

But the former general director of FC Rijeka Vlado Čohar, who left the club in July 2018, explained about the transfers of young Nigerian players in the following way: “Given that the club owner was the Stichting Social Sport, the idea was to integrate a number of Nigerian boys into the work of our football school. It was clear that due to FIFA regulations, they would not be able to register (since they were younger than 18), but that did not matter. They trained with our football school teams, we found them guardians and integrated them into the school system. At that time, in 2012 and 2013, it was this social part which was very important for us and it was not an easy task. It’s not an issue to note that they could not be registered when everyone knew it, the FIFA regulation clearly defines it.”

On the question about the sanctioned transfer of Goodness Ohiremen Ayaji, he answered: “Namely, registrations outside of TMS are not some kind of big offense. The transfer management system is exactly what its name says, and in order for the transfer to be made, the player needs to be registered somewhere. All our Nigerian players have signed statements that they have a registration for CF Rijeka as the first registration.”

“In the next step in the registration process, the Croatian Football Federation, based on the player’s statement, would seek a confirmation from the Nigerian Football Federation. After all the confirmation that this is precisely the first registration, the player is normally registered in accordance with the regulation,” Čohar added.

He said also that the additional six Nigerian players we mentioned in this article were registered in accordance with regulations.

On the question of the business model of Volpi and Mišković to transfer Nigerian players to Rijeka and Spezia Calcio he explained: “Mr. Volpi through Stichting Social Sport had a clear strategy of helping the local community in Nigeria, having developed big business there and having a significant annual turnover. Social activity was not manifested only through football, and this can certainly be easily checked. At the very least you need to logically conclude that someone who runs an annual multi-billion dollar turnover can not base a business model on transferring a player outside TMS. Or, basically, anything based on football.”

And he continued: “Indeed, in the context of strategic decisions made by the owners, Nigerian boys were brought in. I do not think I need to repeat the model. Some boys stayed longer, some shorter, and everything was organized in coordination with the state institutions. As I said, they had guardians and their stay was done in accordance with all the rules relating to juveniles. It will not be difficult to elaborate every single case. The contribution of FC Rijeka towards the college in Abuja was reflected exclusively through the professional work of the football trainers. I emphasize that most of these boys who came to Rijeka did not continue to practice football.”

New owners of Rijeka from United Arab Emirates

And what was the football success of Nigerian players who came to Rijeka with dreams to become football stars? Goodness Ohiremen Ayaji and Solomon Theophilus are playing in Croatian first league at FC Inter Zaprešić. Jamilu Collins found his luck in 2. Bundesliga with SC Paderborn and Olie Kingsley Ndidi managed to get into the second Norway league club Mjøndalen, but seems to be without a club since January 2018, according to the Transfermarkt. David Nwolokor is on loan from Rijeka to 1st Hungarian League club Sered. Muhammed Kabiru returned from the second loan in last three seasons back to Rijeka from the second Croatian league. Also Musa Yusuf is playing in the Croatian second league. It seems their transfers from Nigeria to Croatia did not bring them high-end football careers.

There are also the other kind of transfers. A transfer of super-rich individuals to low tax jurisdictions, as previously revealed by Volpi’s and Damir Mišković’s tax haven trail. In December 2017, a major change of ownership in FC Rijeka happened. Volpi’s Stichting Social Sport sold its 70 percent shares of the club to the company Teanna Limited, registered in the United Kingdom. And who is its ultimate beneficial owner, again registered in tax haven, as it is so often in recent years? Publicly, Damir Mišković’s daughters, the 25-year-old Matea Mišković and 23-year-old Anna Mišković, educated at elite Swiss colleges, are praised in Croatian press as being a “beautiful and successful owners of FC Rijeka”. However, a UK corporate registry reveals both have a permanent address and thus a tax residency in yet another tax haven – in the United Arab Emirates.

Marić otkrio što se dogodilo s umjetninama oduzetim Sanaderu i Vidoševiću

Pon, 10/12/2018 - 23:55

Ministar državne imovine Goran Marić za Dnevnik Nove TV otkrio je što se dogodilo s umjetninama koje je država zaplijenila bivšem premijeru Ivi Sanaderu, kao i bivšem predsjedniku državne imovine, Nadanu Vidoševiću.

Vlada je prije nekoliko tjedana donijela uredbu o raspolaganju privremeno oduzete imovine i umjetnina, a velikim sudskim procesima ih je oduzela.

“Ministarstvo državne imovine ima privremeno oduzetu imovinu i trajno oduzetu imovinu”, izjavio je ministar Marić, dodavši kako govorimo privremenih 670 nekretnina, 15 vozila i 158 milijuna kuna.

“Od umjetničkih djela, ima ih više od tisuću, mislim 1068”, tvrdi.

Ministarstvo, po novoj uredbi, može raspolagati tom imovinom ako dolazi do naglog propadanja, a troškovi su veći od 20 posto vrijednosti.

“Za sada troškovi čuvanja nisu toliko visoki. Mi ih u četiri muzeja čuvamo, godišnje se plaća 150 tisuća kuna”, izjavio je ministar.

Na upit novinara zašto okrivljenici sami ne plaćaju troškove čuvanja, ministar je izjavio da postoji mogućnost “ako mi raspolažemo, da oni plaćaju i da nadoknade razliku u cijeni ako vrijednost padne, ali sada zakon predviđa da ako država oduzima da Republika Hrvatska snosi i troškove čuvanja”.

Ministar je potvrdio i da je tržišna vrijedost oduzete imovine oko 20 milijuna kuna.

“Oko 20 milijuna kuna, ali recimo do sada trajno oduzete imovine u novcu je bilo 158 milijuna kuna, a u proračun je sjelo samo 30 milijuna kuna”, zaključio je ministar Marić.

Ruski vojni zrakoplovi stigli u Venezuelu na vojne vježbe

Pon, 10/12/2018 - 23:30

Ruski zrakoplovi i vojnici stigli su u Venezuelu na zajedničke vojne vježbe, rekao je u ponedjeljak venezuelski ministar obrane Vladimir Padrino Lopez.

“Moramo reći venezuelskom narodu i cijelom svijetu da kao što surađujemo u raznim područjima razvoja za dva naroda, također se pripremamo za obranu Venezuele”, izjavio je general Padrino Lopez.

“To ćemo učiniti s našim prijateljima jer u svijetu imamo prijatelje koji brane odnose ravnoteže i kvalitete između država”, dodao je ministar.

Padrino Lopez je govorio u međunarodnoj zračnoj luci Caracasa, gdje je dočekao stotinjak ruskih pilota i osoblja koji su stigli u Venezuelu u nekoliko vojnih zrakoplova.

Ruska vojska je iz Moskve najavila da u Caracas stižu dva bombardera Tu-160, jedan transportni An-124 i jedan linijski zrakoplov Il-62, a nije precizirao ni razloge ni trajanje misije.

Venezuelski ministar je podsjetio da su ti zrakoplovi već bili u njihovoj zemlji 2013., ali da se sada radi o “novom iskustvu”.

Nije precizirao trajanje vježbi koje je opisao kao razmjenu operativnih letova, za podizanje razine operativnosti sustava zračne obrane dviju zemalja.

Vladimir Padrino Lopez je precizirao da su ti manevri dio bilateralne suradnje. Posljednjih godina Rusija je prodala Venezueli vojnu opremu vrijednu više stotina milijuna dolara.

Ministar je dodao da se “nitko ne treba bojati nazočnosti bombardera na venezuelskom teritoriju, jer su oni tvorci mira, a ne rata”.

Venezuelska vlada redovno upozorava na američke planove vojnih napada.

Čelnica Huaweia spremna na stroge mjere nadzora

Pon, 10/12/2018 - 23:06

Šefica financija kineske tvrtke Huawei Meng Wanzhou uhićena u Kanadi na zahtjev Sjedinjenih Država, spremna je na stroge mjere nadzora ako njezinu molbu za oslobođenje prihvati sud u Vancouveru, rekao je u ponedjeljak jedan njezin odvjetnik, dok Peking vrši pritiske na Ottawu i Washington.

Meng Wanzhou je u zatvoru od 1. prosinca, a američko pravosuđe traži njezino izručenje jer je optužuje da je prekršila sankcije SAD-a protiv Irana.

Ona je već saslušana na Vrhovnom sudu u petak, a u ponedjeljak se nastavlja saslušanje.

Jedan od njezinih odvjetnika David Marti je rekao da bi u slučaju da bude oslobođena, Meng preuzela sve troškove povezane s njezinim 24-satnim nadzorom, koji bi obavljale dvije privatne zaštitarske tvrtke, od kojih jednu vode bivši kanadski policajci i vojnici.

U tom slučaju bi boravila na jednom od svoja dva posjeda u Vancouveru i predala bi putovnicu, nosila elektroničku narukvicu, te isplatila veliku jamčevinu.

Meng Wanzhou (46) je izjavila da ima zdravstvenih problema, među kojima visoki tlak. Preboljela je rak štitnjače 2011.  i ima problema s gutanjem.

Liječi su u jednoj kanadskoj bolnici i dugo zadržavanje bi ugrozilo njezino zdravlje, tvrdi ona.

Macron najavio povećanje minimalne plaće i smanjenje poreza za umirovljenike

Pon, 10/12/2018 - 22:20

Francuski predsjednik Emmanuel Macron je u ponedjeljak u pokušaju smirenja bijesa “žutih prsluka” čiji su često nasilni prosvjedi doveli u pitanje njegov autoritet najavio povećanje najniže plaće i smanjenje poreza za umirovljenike.

Predsjednik je najavio više mjera suočen sa “gospodarskim i društvenim izvanrednim stanjem, kao povišenje minimalne plaće za 100 eura, izuzeće od povišenja poreza za niske mirovine i ukidanje poreza za prekovremene sate”.

“Tražim od vlade i parlamenta da poduzmu potrebno kako bi se od početka sljedeće godine moglo bolje živjeti od rada. Minimalna plaća radnika će se 2019. povećati za 100 eura i to poslodavca neće ništa stajati”, rekao je u svom obraćanju naciji putem televizije, ali nije iznio pojedinosti te mjere.

Dodatni sati će se od 2019. isplaćivati bez poreza i nameta, kao tijekom petogodišnje vladavine Nicolasa Sarkozyja. Macron je također tražio od svih poslodavaca koji to mogu da uoči završetka godine isplate nagrade djelatnicima, također oslobođeno poreza.

Francuski predsjednik je govorio i o umirovljenicima “dragocjenom dijelu nacije” i za one koji primaju manje od 2000 eura mjesečno, tijekom 2019. će biti “pošteđeni općeg socijalnog doprinosa, koji su morali plaćati ove godine, što je bila pretjerano visoka i nepravedna obveza”, rekao je. Do danas su samo umirovljenici s mirovinama nižim od 1200 eura bili pošteđeni te mjere.

Macronovi ustupci dolaze samo 48 sati nakon što su prosvjednici vodili ulične borbe s interventnom policijom u Parizu bacajući projektile, paleći automobile i pljačkajući prodavaonice.

Macron je u ponedjeljak navečer govorio i o 40 godina starim problemima i dodao da je bijes “žutih prsluka” opravdan u puno pogleda i da je svjestan da je svojim izjavama povrijedio neke od njih.

Na početku govora francuski predsjednik je osudio nedopustiva nasilja tijekom prosvjeda “žutih prsluka” i zajamčio da za ta nasilja neće biti milosti.

On je isto tako rekao kako ostaje pri svojim reformama i odbio uvesti porez na bogatstvo.

“Odgovorit ćemo na gospodarsku i društvenu nužnost jakim mjerama režući poreze brže, držeći potrošnju pod nadzorom, ali ne potpunim zaokretima”, rekao je Macron.

SAD sankcionirao trojicu sjevernokorejskih dužnosnika zbog kršenja ljudskih prava

Pon, 10/12/2018 - 21:52

SAD je u ponedjeljak uveo sankcije protiv trojice sjevernokorejskih dužnosnika, uključujući bliskog suradnika predsjednika Kim Jong Una, zbog “cenzure te stalnih i ozbiljnih kršenja ljudskih prava”, objavilo je američko ministarstvo financija.

Sankcijama se zamrzava sva imovina tih dužnosnika u SAD-u i zabranjuje poslovanje s njima bilo kojem entitetm u Americi.

Na popisu su Ryang Hae Choe, bliski Kimov suradnik te ministar državne sigurnosti Kyong Thaek Jong i direktor Uprave za propagandu Kwang Ho Pak.

U ministarstvu kažu da su sankcije uvedene “kao podsjetnik na brutalno postupanje Sjeverne Koreje prema američkom državljaninu Ottu Warmbieru”.

Radi se o američkom studentu koji je umro u srpnju 2017. nakon što je proveo 17 mjeseci u zatočeništvu u Sjevernoj Koreji.

Joachim Low se nudi Real Madridu

Pon, 10/12/2018 - 21:50

Izbornik bivših svjetskih nogometnih prvaka Nijemaca Joachim Low nudi se europskom prvaku Real Madridu.

Low je svjestan kako mu je pozicija na klupi ‘elfa’ uzdrmana nakon očajnog nastupa Nijemaca na svjetskom prvenstvu u Rusiji, te neuvjerljivih igara u Ligi nacija. Zbog toga je počeo razmišljati o promjeni sredine, a ‘Kraljevski klub’ bi bio pravi izazov.

“Na njemačkoj klupi sam dosta dugo i moram početi razmišljati o idućem koraku,” kazao je Low dodavši: “Ne bi želio karijeru nastaviti u Njemačkoj. Moja budućnost je vjerojatno u inozemstvu.”

Real Madrid ? To bi bila zanimljiva opcija za svakog trenera,” poručio je njemački strateg.

Low je bio jedan od mnogih imena povezanih s Los Blancosima nakon što je Zinedine Zidane podnio ostavku u lipnju. Na koncu se vodstvo kluba odlučilo za izbornika španjolske vrste Julena Lopetguia, međutim on je dobio otkaz nakon tri i pol mjeseca, a naslijedio ga je Santiago Solari.

Low vodi njemačku vrstu od 2006. godine, a pod njegovim vodstvom ‘elf’ je osvojio svjetsko prvenstvo 2014. godine, treće mjesto na SP-u 2010., te drugo mjesto na EP-u 2008.
