Boris Becker ‘CAR diplomatic immunity’ claim descends into confusion

Boris Becker 'CAR diplomatic immunity' claim descends into confusion Image copyright AFP Image caption Boris Becker says the legal action being taken against him is "unjustified and unjust" Confusion surrounds a claim by former tennis champion Boris Becker that he holds diplomatic status on behalf of the Central African Republic (CAR). He asserted last week in London that his appointment as a diplomat by the CAR gave him protection from legal action in a bankruptcy case. The CAR embassy in Belgium confirmed it had issued him a diplomatic passport. However, a top official in the CAR foreign ministry told a French news agency the passport was fake. Cherubin Moroubama told AFP the serial number on the document matched one of a batch of "new passports that were stolen in 2014". He added that the passport, dated 19 March 2018, does not bear the signature or the stamp of the foreign minister.

Former Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi denies receiving ‘cash gift’

Former Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi denies receiving 'cash gift' Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionAfrican referees filmed taking cash The second-most powerful man in African football has branded video of him apparently taking cash gifts "lies". Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) head Kwesi Nyantakyi was seen taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter. But Mr Nyantakyi says the footage was doctored, dismissing it as "shoddy work with cut and paste". He also says that audio snippets have been "inserted" and rearranged so as to falsely incriminate him. It is against the rules of Fifa, football's world governing body, to accept any gifts of cash. Mr Nyantakyi resigned from his posts with Fifa and the Confederation of African Football (Caf) after the footage was made public in June. It is the first time he has commented on the allegations since stepping down. Africa Live: More on this and other other stories African officials filmed ..

Now LGBT people are gaining confidence and are coming out of the shadows to push for equal rights.
