first_img Pele, widely considered to be one of the greatest footballers in history and who will be 80 in October, has had hip trouble for years and now needs a frame to walk. Many of his recent public appearances have been in a wheelchair. “He’s pretty fragile. He had a hip replacement and didn’t have an adequate or ideal rehabilitation,” Edinho told TV Globo. “So he has this problem with mobility and that has set off a kind of depression. Imagine, he’s the King, he was always such an imposing figure and today he can’t walk properly.Advertisement Brazilian soccer great Pele is depressed over his poor health and reluctant to leave the house because he cannot walk unaided, his son Edinho said in an interview published in Brazil on Monday. Loading…center_img “He’s embarrassed, he doesn’t want to go out, be seen, or do practically anything that involves leaving the house,” his son added. “He is very sheepish, reclusive.” Edinho said he had argued with his father because he had not done the physiotherapy called for after a hip operation.

first_img“While it may be true that there is no willful and deliberate forum shopping on the part of Roy Yanson’s camp, the rule is clear that forum shopping is a ground for dismissal of a case,” stated on the order. He said they believe that the special stockholders meeting was null and void from the very beginning because it did not constitute a quorum. The Yanson 4, however, through their spokesperson lawyer Raul Bitoon, said the decision is only temporary. In a Sept. 24 resolution, Judge Phoebe Gargantiel-Balbin junked the Yanson 4’s petition, saying “the instant petition filed by Roy Yanson is dismissible on the ground of forum shopping, under the Interim Rules in relation to the Rules of Court.” Bitoon disclosed that as of this timethe legal team of the Yanson 4 has yet to decide what remedy to take./PN Meanwhile, according to Atty. Norman Golez, Leo Rey’s legal counsel, whatever question regarding the legality of Leo Rey’s authority over VTI including stockholders and board meetings where the Yanson matriarch, Olivia, was elected as member of the board, was put to rest. Gargantiel-Balbin cited in the ruling that there are pending cases before the RTC in this city involving the same issue and among the same parties. It added that the determination of all corporate concerns between the parties could be best resolved with finality and without conflicting judgment if lodged in one court alone. Earlier in August, the Yanson 4 filed the petition against Leo Rey to invalidate his call for a special stockholders meeting on Aug. 19. “We are aware that decisions like this could be appealed or a motion for reconsideration could be filed. But as to which remedy to take, it will be taken by lawyer Sigfrid Fortun which I am not aware of this time,” Bitoon said. BACOLOD City – For lack of merit, theRegional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 45 here dismissed the petition for injunctionfiled by the Yanson 4 – Roy, Ricky, Celina, and Emily – against their youngestsibling and Vallacar Transit Inc. (VTI) president Leo Rey. Thus, the instant petition ought to bedismissed for willfully and deliberately splitting a cause of action or “litispendentia.”last_img read more

Senate President Vicente Sotto III Sotto said the resolution would not, inany way, dictate or impose anything on the Supreme Court and it should also notbe viewed as going against President Rodrigo Duterte. MANILA – The Senate has sought theclarification of the Supreme Court whether their concurrence is not needed inthe termination of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) between the Philippinesand the United States. Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilonsaid that he was “saddened” that the Senate cannot get a unanimousvote on a resolution which merely seeks to clarify the constitutionalboundaries of the chamber. The clarification with the high courtwas made after 12 senators voted for the Senate Resolution 337, sponsored inthe plenary by Senate President Vicente Sotto III on late Monday evening. “All that what we’re asking the SupremeCourt is to define our Constitutional boundaries, nothing else. We are notdictating the Supreme Court. We are in fact asking the Supreme Court to rule onthe decision,” the Ilonggo senator said. “The Supreme Court may rule that theSenate’s concurrence is not necessary and that settles the issue. If theSupreme Court rules that Senate concurrence is necessary, again that settlesthe issue,” he added. The Philippine government, upon theorder of President Duterte, has sent the notice of termination of the VFA whichgoverns the conduct of visiting US personnel holding military exercises in thePhilippines./PNlast_img read more
