Court acquits Taulava of P9.5-M tax evasion charges

first_imgRead Next Asi Taulava now can heave a sigh of relief.Filipino-Tongan basketball player Pauliasi “Asi” Taulava has scored against the Bureau of Internal Revenue, as the Court of Tax Appeals acquitted him of P9.55-million tax evasion charges.In a 41-page decision dated Nov. 3, the CTA First Division said BIR failed to prove that it properly served the final letter of demand informing Taulava of his tax assessment for the year 2004.ADVERTISEMENT The prosecution did not present the registry receipt issued by the Bureau of Posts or the registry return card as proof that Taulava was mailed the assessment notice, which he denied receiving.The failure to give due process to Taulava “gives rise to the conclusion that the accused is under no obligation to pay for the subject taxes,” read the decision penned by Associate Justice Erlinda P.

Archers look to underline dominance

first_imgDespite all the major hurdles that they have came across, a determined Indian archery team has got its priorities right and is firmly focussed to underline its authority at the Commonwealth Games beginning on October 3.The archers began their training under bright sunshine at the competition venue, the Yamuna Sports Complex, on Friday and were high on confidence.”We have had some great performances in the recent past and I am sure we would continue the trend at the Games as well,” Tarundeep Rai, member of the recurve team, told M AIL T ODAY . ” A few problems here and there are seen everywhere around the world, but our focus is just on the medals.” Chief coach Limba Ram made it clear that four gold medals should be a reasonable achievement for his wards but said he was looking to improve the tally by two more.”The team has been together for quite some time now and has been doing really well. They won the gold at the World Cup stage IV which makes their form very evident,” he said.”There are eight gold medals on offer and surely we should win four of them but we are aiming a couple more than that.” The squad has good blend of experience and youth. The trio – Rahul Banerjee, Jayanta Talukdar and Rai – recently won the World Cup stage IV in Shanghai.Rai said the toughest competition would come from England and Australia who would be with their best archers.But he claimed the team was well prepared for the challenge.advertisement”England and Australia would be in full force here.They would pose the biggest challenge to us but we are prepared for them. At the World Cup in Shanghai, England were our first opponent and we defeated them,” he said.The team also includes the experienced Dola Banerjee who still remains the lone Indian ever to have won a World Cup Final.Dola too exuded confidence and said she is in the right frame of mind for her gold quest at the Commonwealth Games in which archery has been included for the first time since the 1982 edition.”We have had some decent practice at Kolkata. Besides, we have also performed well in international competitions recently. So, I believe we stand a good chance to win a number of medals here,” she said.While the Indians are getting ready, international archers have been advised to be prepared for the worst and have been asked to get knee- length rubber boots to confront the damp field at the archery venue.Only the Indian team has had the experience of practicing at the Yamuna Sports Complex so far and a bright sunshine welcomed them on their first day in office on Friday.Although the Indians did not require their rubber boots on Friday, the organisers have issued an advisory to the various Commonwealth Games Associations ( CGAs) as they fear that the rains may disrupt their training.”We have already advised all the CGAs to send their teams with rubber boots as the incessant rains have had its affect on the field of play,” competition manager Ranjith Dutta told M AIL T ODAY on Friday.”It has been raining heavily for the past so many weeks and we have to be prepared for the worst, so it is a general advice that we have given to all the CGAs and the Indian team as well.”last_img read more

India record their best-ever performance in Asian Games

first_imgIndia’s Ashwini Akkunji, Mandeep Kaur, Sini Jose and Manjeet Kaur celebrate after winning gold in the women’s 4×400 metre relay during the 16th Asian Games 2010 at Aoti Main Stadium in Guangzhou, China, on Friday. PTIIndia created history by recording their best-ever performance in Asian Games with 64 medals, including a record 14 gold, with star boxer Vijender Singh providing the icing on the cake by bringing the last yellow metal on the penultimate day in Guangzhou on Friday.The men’s and women’s kabaddi teams expectedly maintained their supremacy by clinching the gold before the women’s 4x400m quartet and Vijender (75kg) bagged a yellow metal each on the most productive day for India in the mega-event.With the addition of 11 more medals on Friday, India’s tally climbed to a record 14 gold, 17 silver and 33 bronze (total 64), the biggest ever haul in the Asian Games so far, to jump to the sixth place.India’s best medal haul till date was recorded in the 1982 Games in Delhi when they had won 13 gold, 19 silver and 25 bronze for an overall tally of 57. India had finished 10 in the last edition of the Games in Doha with a tally of 10-17-26.India have now completed their engagements in the Games and their final standing will depend after the completion of the six events — men’s and women’s marathon, men’s and women’s doubles sepaktakraw finals and women’s volleyball final — on Saturday.China leads the medal table with 197 gold, 117 silver and 98 bronze (total 412), followed by South Korea (74-63-91) and Japan (47-73-94) at second and third respectively.advertisementWhile the kabaddi teams did not sweat much to keep their reputation intact in rather lopsided finals, Vijender made amends for his bronze-finish in Commonwealth Games with a gold here while compatriots Santosh Kumar (64) and Manpreet Singh (91kg) settled for a silver each.The women’s 4x400m relay team also lived up to the expectations as they defended the gold they won in the 2006 Doha Asian Games.Long distance runners Preeja Sreedharan, who had earlier won a gold in women’s 10,000m race, and Kavita Raut had their moment of glory by winning the silver and bronze medals respectively in the women’s 5000m event.Rollersports fetched India a couple of unexpected bronze medals with Anup Kumar Yama bagging one in men’s single free skating before combining with Avani Panchal to finish third in the pairs skating event. The Indian men’s chess team also contributed a bronze.Much was expected from the kabaddi teams to provide the boost to the gold haul and they did not disappoint.The men’s kabaddi team maintained their impeccable track record by winning the gold medal for the sixth time on the trot, demolishing Iran with a facile 37-20 margin what turned out to be a lop-sided contest.The script unfolded on expected lines for the women’s kabaddi team also as they completed a memorable Asian Games debut by clinching the gold medal with a comprehensive win over Thailand in the final.The Indians beat Thailand 28-14 in a dominating performance to clinch the inaugural women’s kabaddi gold of the Asian Games.World number one Vijender added another feather on his cap by clinching an unprecedented second boxing gold for India in the Asian Games to round off the best ever campaign by the country’s pugilists at the quadrennial mega-event.It was sweet revenge for Olympic and World Championship bronze-medallist Vijender when he blanked reigning world champion Abbos Atoev of Uzbekistan 7-0. Atoev had beaten the 25-year-old Indian at the World Championship semifinals last year but Vijender wiped off the disappointment with a performance fitting the hype around him.The dashing six-footer Indian crouched a bit and took full advantage of his long reach and taller height against Atoev, whom he had beaten in Asian Championships last year.Hitting straight and clear, Vijender, who was a bronze-medallist at the 2006 Asian Games, defended stoutly, seldom letting Atoev to attack.However, V Santhosh Kumar (64kg) and Manpreet Singh (91kg) settled for silver medals after losing in the finals.While Santhosh lost 1-16 to Kazakhstan’s Daniyar Yeleussinov in finals, Manpreet went down 1-8 to Mohammad Ghossoun of Syria to take India’s silver tally to three in boxing after Dinesh Kumar (81kg) had finished second yesterday.The athletics team also ended their campaign with a bagful of medals with the women’s 4x400m relay quartet winning the gold to bring down curtains with a bang.India emerged from the track and field events with five gold, two silver and four bronze medals, one of their best efforts in Asian Games history, though below their performance in 2002 Busan Asian Games where they had a 7-6-5 medal haul.advertisementHaving started their campaign with a golden double in the women’s 10,000m and 3,000m steeplechase through Preeja Sreedharan and Sudha Singh on the first day, the 4x400m relay team of Manjeet Kaur, Sini Jose, AC Ashwini and Mandeep Kaur ended the campaign by clinching gold in 3 minutes 29.02secs.Kazakhstan took the silver in 3:30.03 while China claimed the bronze in 3:30.89.With inputs from PTIlast_img read more
