MEN PLEAD GUILTY TO ROBBING DONEGAL POST OFFICE – USING STOLEN MAIL VAN!

first_imgThe scene of the 2014 robbery at Manor post office: Pic Copyright Joe Boland North West News PixThree bungling thieves used a bright red stolen Royal Mail van to carry out a terrifying post office robbery in Co Donegal.The men, all from Derry, dressed up in hi-visibilty jackets before traveling to Manorcunningham to carry out the raid on October 4th last year. The men, carrying a hatchet, knife and hammer terrified the postmistress before making a break for the border with €2,972 in cash from the raid.The men initially tried to break down a locked door of the post office before realising the door beside it was actually open.But unknown to the men, Gardai had been tipped off by their counterparts in the PSNI in Derry that a Royal Mail van had been hi-kjacked in Derry earlier in the day.Detectives were patrolling the border and managed to use a stinger device to bring the getaway mail van to a halt.All three men, who have 300 previous convictions between them, were arrested and appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court yesterday after pleading guilt an an earlier court sitting to the charges.Detective Garda Rosemary Rooney recounted the terrifying experience which the gang put the postmistress through.The court heard how Ms Kathleen Diver saw the men in hi-viz jackets coming past the window of her post office carrying weapons and pressed the alarm.However the men burst into the premises and smashed up the entire promises using the hammer and hatchet.The terrified postmistress, who did not come to court, threw the cash at the robbers.The owner of a hairdressing salon next door, Ms Amanda Devenney, managed to contact Gardai who rushed to the scene and also gave chase.All three men, David Knight, who is 37 and from 25 Melmore Gardens in Derry, Noel Lavy, also 37 and from 57 Ballymagowan, Derry, and Joseph McMullan, who is 5 Kavanagh Court were arrested a short time later despite trying to flee across fields when the tyres of the mail van was burst by the Garda stinger.The court heard how all three men came from deprived backgrounds and all had issues with drugs.Barrister Damien Crawford said the raid was carried out with little planning and by men who were all high or under the influence of drugs.“Short of driving a red fire engine or Dr Who’s tardis and wearing hi viz jackets they could be not more conspicuous,” he said.Judge John Aylmer said he needed time to consider all the submissions of the men’s backgrounds and adjourned the case until December 16th next.MEN PLEAD GUILTY TO ROBBING DONEGAL POST OFFICE – USING STOLEN MAIL VAN! was last modified: December 8th, 2015 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more

Japan to Hire 200,000 Indian IT Professionals

first_imgJapan will be hiring 200,000 information technology (IT) professionals from India to support its rapidly expanding IT infrastructure, Shigeki Maeda, executive vice president at Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO), a government body, said on March 8, according to the Economic Times.The IT professionals will be given green cards so that they can settle down in Japan. The country has been reticent about opening up its shores to immigrants until now, but with an ageing population and low birth rate it was said to be only a matter of time till it opened its doors to people of other nationalities.“Currently there are around 920,000 IT professionals in the country and there is an immediate demand for more than 200,000 IT professionals from India which is likely to further swell to 800,000 professionals by 2030,” Maeda said in his keynote address at the India-Japan Business Partnership Seminar, which was jointly organized by Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce and Jetro.Many Japanese companies feel that there are limitations to conventional “in-house innovation” and hence India is the ideal partner while moving towards “most-advanced IT Technology Capabilities,” he said.“India can bridge that gap. If a company in Japan has an immediate demand for say 5,000 engineers, only India can come to their aid. All sectors are facing the crunch as they are interlinked and connected… whether it is healthcare, agriculture, research and development or services or finance,” Maeda added.The Japanese government will give green cards to highly-skilled professionals that would let them get permanent resident status in as little as one year. This will be first of its kind in the world since it will be the fastest grant of residence.India and Japan’s ties have become closer with enhancement in security, maritime and trade relations. India and Japan are part of a Quadrilateral agreement, including Australia and the United States, regarding security. Japan and India also plan to create 11 economic zones in India. Some of the places identified for the industrial townships are Tumkur (Karnataka), Ghilot (Rajasthan), Mandal (Gujarat), Supa (Maharashtra), Ponneri (Tamil Nadu), Neemrana (Rajasthan), Jhajjar (Haryana), and Integrated Industrial Township in Greater Noida (Uttar Pradesh/NCR).Japan has also relaxed visa rules for Indian travelers with effect from Jan. 1, 2018. Currently, Indians don’t need to submit their employment certificate and letters of explanation for multiple-entry visas.Currently, there are 1,369 Japanese companies in India while only 71 Indian companies operate in Japan. In 2016, only 266 Indian highly skilled foreign professionals were working there, the Hindu reported. However, with curbs on the H-1B visa in the United States more professionals are expected to vie for jobs in other countries. Related ItemsEmploymentJapanlast_img read more
