  2. DSI submits list of 110 officials to graft buster for probe in supercar tax evasion scam The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has submitted a list of 110 state officials to the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) for probe after finding them responsible for customs documentation clearance of the 122 supercars impounded from several car importers in Bangkok and Samut Prakan on Thursday and yesterday for suspected import tax avoidance. The supercars impounded include famous brands such as Lamborghini, Lotus, McLaren, Pagani, Ferrari, Hummer, and Koenigsegg. DSI said over 10 billion baht in tax was avoided a year from such false declaration of actual car prices by these unscrupulous importers. The 110 names of state officials comprise both high ranking officials at executive level and low ranking officials. According to the DSI, the impounding of these supercars came from several years of investigation into an incident in Pak Chong district of Nakhon Ratchasima in May 2013 when several supercars were damaged in a mystery fire while these cars were on the way to deliver to customers in Sisaket province. Trailing of these cars back to Bangkok showed they were delivered by some of these car importers raided yesterday by DSI.

Millwall promoted to the English Championship Britain Football Soccer - Bradford City v Millwall - Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final - Wembley Stadium, London, England - 20/5/17 Millwall celebrate with the trophy after getting promoted to the Sky Bet Championship Mandatory Credit: Action Images / Peter Cziborra LONDON (Reuters) - Millwall returned to the second tier of English soccer on Saturday, with fans invading the pitch at Wembley Stadium, after beating Bradford City 1-0 with a late goal in their League One playoff final. Steve Morison scored the 85th minute winner to send the Lions, who missed out to Barnsley in last year's playoff final, back to the Championship after two seasons in the third tier. The South-East Londoners, who ended the season in sixth place and six points behind Bradford, join already promoted Sheffield United and Bolton Wanderers in going up. The pitch invasion by Millwall fans angered Bradford manager Stuart McCall, who told Sky Sports that he was "close to clocking one or two of them". -- © Copyright Reuters 2017-05-21

  14. Turkish NBA star denied entry to Romania after passport cancelled - police Enes Kanter of Turkey speaks to reporters at a media availability session ahead of the 2011 NBA Draft in New York, June 22, 2011. REUTERS/Mike Segar/File Photo BUCHAREST (Reuters) - U.S.-based Turkish basketball star Enes Kanter was refused entry into Romania on Saturday because his Turkish passport had been cancelled, Romanian border police said. Kanter, who plays in the NBA for Oklahoma City Thunder, is a long-time supporter of Pennsylvania-based preacher Fethullah Gulen, whose extradition Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan is seeking in relation to a failed coup last July. Kanter said on his Twitter account that he would hold a news conference in New York on Sunday to discuss his situation. "Got lots of things to say with lots of crazy stories, Be ready!!!" he said. Kanter had tweeted earlier that Romanian police had detained him at Bucharest airport. "I'm being held at Romanian airport by police," Kanter wrote, along with a photo of him with his arms around two police officers and a video describing what he said was his situation. "We are in Romania and they said they cancelled my passport by Turkish embassy," he said in the video, speaking in English. "You know because the reason behind it is just of course my political views." Neither the National Basketball Association nor the Oklahoma City Thunder were immediately available for comment on Kanter. Kanter's agent, Melvut Cilnar, told Oklahoma media that the player was safe. He said he and Kanter expected to return to the U.S. from London "very soon" but did not elaborate. Romanian border police said in a statement that Kanter had come from the United States and made a stop in Frankfurt. "At the border checkpoint it was discovered that his passport is not valid, his travel document being annulled by the issuing state," the statement said, adding he then flew on to London. Turkish officials were not immediately available to comment. Kanter said last year he had severed ties with his family and pledged allegiance to Gulen after Turkish media published a letter signed by Kanter's father, disowning his son. [L8N1AQ1ZU] During the coup attempt, rogue soldiers in warplanes and tanks tried to seize power in Turkey in a putsch that killed more than 240 people. Gulen, who has lived in self-imposed exile since 1999, has denied involvement. -- © Copyright Reuters 2017-05-21
