RIGA Billige Herre Nike Shox NZ Sko Hvid Guld , Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- Eight people, including two players and two managers of FC Daugava were detained on Oct. 22, on suspicions of systematic match-fixing, Andrejs Grisins, chief of the Latvian police, told journalists Friday.
The group of people suspected of organizing the match-fixing scheme in the southeastern city of Daugavpils are facing charges of large-scale fraud, money laundering and tax evasion nike air max 97 tilbud , Grisins said.
The leader of the group, whose name was not revealed at Friday's press conference, was taken into custody on Friday. Seven other suspects were released, but the footballers and club managers have been banned from professional activity.
"They have been banned either from playing football or holding soccer-related offices," the police official said.
Citing unofficial information, LETA news agency reported that the only suspect arrested on Friday was Olegs Gavrilovs, the ex-president of Latvia's Dinaburg FC nike air max 95 tilbud , who has been barred for life for previous manipulations with football match results.
According to media reports, the Daugava FC players and managers taken into custody on Wednesday include Ivan Tabanov, the head coach of Daugava FC, and the club's players Aleksandrs Vlasovs and Jevgenijs Kosmacovs. The name of the other club manager detained for his alleged connection with the case has not been made public.
"The manipulations took place during international matches and the local championship. Each participant of the organized group had been assigned a particular role. There were bribed people who could influence results of the games and people who handled the cash flow. We have established during the investigation that the unpaid taxes alone make up hundreds of thousands of euros, so you can imagine the financial turnover of these unlawful activities," Grisins said.
According to the police official, the alleged match-fixing scheme had been going on for quite a long time.
EARLIER this summer nike shox r4 tilbud , Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” became the most-streamed song of all time — an incredible feat for a record that’s predominantly in Spanish.
But it increasingly looks like it won’t be a one-off.
Another Latin American song, “Mi Gente,” has replaced “Despacito” at the top of Spotify’s Global Top 50. In the U.K., it’s just broken into the top 20.
“It’s amazing. It’s such a blessing,” says singer J Balvin, the Colombian artist who’s behind the song.
Already a huge star in South America, Balvin has been credited with revitalizing reggaeton — a hip-hop-infused blend of reggae and rap that originated in Puerto Rico in the late 1990s.
Over the course of four albums nike shox avenue tilbud , he’s taken the genre once called “reggae en Espanol” and infused it with African, electronic and Caribbean flavors.
More importantly, his lyrics trade reggaeton’s gritty, underground roots for a more universal, romantic narrative.
“Mi música no discrimina a nadie,” he sings in “Mi Gente,” meaning “my music doesn’t discriminate against anybody.”
“Exactly!” says the star nike shox 807 tilbud , when he talks about the lyric. “I’m Latino but I don’t do music for Latinos. My music is for everybody in the world.
“Music has to be a tool to unite people, to get people together. It doesn’t matter the race, the language and the culture. So that’s what I’m saying when I sing that line.”
The global perspective is evident on “Mi Gente,” which has its roots in a French track — “Voodoo Song,” by Willy William. That song, with its chopped-up vocals samples and hopscotch drumbeats, provides a bonkers backbone to Balvin’s hit (which William also produced and sings on).
“We took a risk to make new music nike shox current tilbud , new colors, new ways,” says Balvin. “It’s crazy what we created.”
So what lies behind this sudden explosion in music from Latin America? Aside from Luis Fonsi and J Balvin’s megahits, there are five other Spanish-language songs in the Spotify Top 50.
Lucian Grainge, head of Universal Records, says streaming is the key — giving Latin American artists a platform they would never have received on U.S. (and U.K.) linguistically conservative radio stations.
“Streaming has changed the face of music discovery and music consumption,” he told the BBC last month.
“We’re at the forefront of a new creative era [where] anyone who is good can find an audience.
“The beautiful thing about streaming is that people are looking for this stuff nike shox tlx tilbud ,” stresses Balvin. “It’s like, they really want to play this music. They’re looking for it especially. It’s the people talking.”
Spotify itself has been actively promoting Latin American music in regions outside South America — not least because Mexico and Brazil are two of the streaming service’s biggest markets.
“We’re proactively trying to push its consumption in countries like Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the U.K [and] obviously the U.S.,” said Rocio Guerra, Spotify’s head of Latin culture.
“There has been a domino effect nike shox oz d herre tilbud ,” she recently told Billboard magazine. “The more songs that we put on the global chart, people are getting more used to listening to songs in a different language.”
Balvin has his own take on the phenomenon: “Well, I think right now kids and the whole world is more open-minded,” he tells the BBC on the phone from Uruguay.
“People are just more open to listening to good vibes, even though they don’t understand the words.
“That’s beautiful. That’s amazing. It’s like we’re showing the world this is not luck... This is really down to good faith and hard work.”
