For its part, Benzema, who in the penultimate training was part of the session with the group, also exercised normally. The Frenchman, who missed the Super Cup tournament in Arabia when he suffered a fibrillar microrrotura during the match against Getafe on January 4, opts to return to the title against the Sevilla players. Precisely, a goal of his in the first round meeting meant the triumph of those of Zidane against those of Lopetegui. With his return, Zizou would be relieved of his problem in attack, since Jovic is also recovered from a rash that occurred in Jeddah. The big victim on this occasion would be Mariano, who after playing in the Super Cup, would fall back into ostracism. Sergio Ramos and Benzema were the two best news of Real Madrid in the last training before Real Madrid receives Sevilla (Saturday 18, 4:00 p.m., Movistar LaLIga). The two players exercised at the same pace as the rest of their teammates, so it will be Zidane who decides if they are summoned and finally play against Sevilla. Those who are totally discarded to face Julen Lopetegui’s team are Marco Asensio and Hazard, who continue with their recovery processes, respectively. For Sergio Ramos, the encounter with his former team is always something special, and more since the last controversies that took place at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium. The captain, who was injured in the final of the Supercup last 12 (sprained his ankle in a fortuitous set with Morata) participated in the typical rounds and in the races that Dupont commands. Of course, it showed a huge blue strip of kinesio tape on his right leg. These strips are used to treat muscle injuries (tears, contractures …), sprains, etc., but the camero made no gesture during the session.
Two men, one of whom became embroiled in an identity enquiry, appeared before Letterkenny District Court charged with credit card fraud.Kwabna Kei and Drissa Dembele were charged with the offences at Dillon’s Hotel on November 23 last. The accused were charged with theft and fraudulent offences.Questions arose over the identity of Kei, of 16 Tudor Lawns, Foxrock, County Dublin, who was subsequently given a two-month suspended prison sentence.A bank card tendered to make a reservation at Dillon’s Hotel was traced to an account in Germany.Kei could not provide documentation to Gardai.“He was very evasive,” Garda Stephen Moyles told the Court.Kei, the court heard, entered the state lawfully in 2006, but had given his date of birth then as 25/8/1987. He said he had been ‘obeying a man’ in order to see his family when he first came to Ireland. His mother has since passed away and his father lives in Ghana.Gardai verified that Kei’s passport, stating his date of birth as 31/12/1989, was a genuine passport, but questioned if the passport was Kei’s.“I have cut my hair, since my uncle did not like it,” Kei told the court.Kei lives with a man in Foxrock, who is a friend of his girlfriend.Judge Alan Mitchell said there was an identity issued that had to be clarified and refused bail.Kei, originally from Ghana, opted to tender a guilty plea to the charges and the case was heard.Gardai were alerted by staff about a reservation that was made on November 22. Staff became suspicious after noticing that the reservation was made over the phone and the name wasn’t compatible with any people who were in the room.Gardai found three occupants in the room.“Our suspicions rose when we located two cards and they weren’t issued to anyone in the room,” Garda Moyles said.Gardai subsequently found a handwritten note in a wallet, belied to have contained credit card numbers, security codes and expiry dates. In a rucksack, officers found a refill pad containing similar information.Gardai detected a strong smell of cannabis in the room. Kei admitted that the €20 of cannabis herb found was for his own use.A loss of €109, the price of a room and ‘half a breakfast’ had been incurred.“They were dining when we arrived,” Garda Moyles said.€750 and £445stg in cash was seized.A female, from the Derry area, was also present and interviewed, but was not charged.“She didn’t know what was going on,” Garda Moyles said.Solicitor for the accused, Patsy Gallagher, said Kei was a 27-year-old man who was in a relationship and expecting their first child.“He came to Letterkenny with another individual and stayed for two extra days,” Mr Gallagher said.“He has no previous convictions and the matter has been dealt with in a very quick space of time.”“Credit card fraud is a disaster area as regards the amount of fraud being perpetrated,” Judge Alan Mitchell said.“It may be that financial institutions take a hit, but it falls back on the customer. I have to send out a strong message here.””Judge Mitchell handed Kei a two-months prison term, but suspended the sentence for 12 months.Kei’s co-accused, Dembele, of 20 Monksfield Lawns in Clondalkin, Dublin, who has one previous conviction, was instructed to sign on at a Garda station in Dublin three times per week and is to be contactable 24 hours a day.Dembele was, an Irish citizen, is not currently in receipt of social welfare. He had been working, but has since left to return to education.Judge Mitchell granted bail on Dembele’s own bond of €300 to appear before the December 21 sitting of the court.Two men charged with attempted fraud at Letterkenny Hotel was last modified: November 28th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Dillons HotelDrissa DembeleJudge Alan MitchellKwabna KeiletterkennyLetterkenny District Court
