MANILA, Philippines --- At least two senators on Tuesday warned the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) that the pending destruction of tons of illegal drugs in its inventory could trigger a "temptation to recycle" among law enforcement agents. Senator Panfilo Lacson and Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon raised concerns over PDEA's "huge inventory of confiscated drugs" during the Senate hearing on the proposed 2021 budget of the agency. Upon the questioning of Drilon, PDEA Director General Wilkins Villanueva said the agency has 2.82 tons of illegal drugs in its present inventory, 1.867 tons of which are methamphetamine hydrochloride (shabu).

Clipped wings: Coronavirus turns tennis pros’ flights into ordeals

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 09/29/2020 - 21:50
PARIS--- For the part of their job that some tennis players have always disliked --- flying --- Jack Sock says he toyed with what would have been a novel solution to the problem of how to stay coronavirus-free on planes: Wear a head-to-toe beekeeper's suit. The American was joking, of course. But the headache of how to globe-trot and stay healthy in the era of COVID-19 is no laughing matter for tennis pros who, unlike other business travelers, must keep flying for their paychecks to keep rolling in. Globally, air travel is down more than 85% from a year ago, according to industry figures. But tennis players cannot home-work. There are no matches on Zoom. And so, as now-rare wor...

LVMH countersues Tiffany, claiming ‘mismanagement’ scuppered deal

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 09/29/2020 - 21:45
French behemoth LVMH said Tuesday that it had filed a countersuit against the American jewelry brand Tiffany, setting up an unusual legal fight after the collapse of one of the biggest luxury takeover bids in decades. LVMH walked away from its $16.2 billion offer this month after claiming a series of poor decisions by Tiffany's board since the deal was unveiled late last year. It also cited a letter from the French foreign ministry that purportedly asked for a delay to the tie-up because of political uncertainties caused by the long-running trade war between the EU and Washington. Tiffany rubbished the claims and sued to force LVMH to go through with its bid, and a US court in D...

Fortnite still unwelcome in Apple’s mobile App Store

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 09/29/2020 - 21:12
Epic Games on Monday failed to convince a US judge to make Apple put its hit title Fortnite back in the tech giant's App Store, while their legal battle heads for a possible trial next year. The two firms are fighting over whether Apple's tight control of the App Store, and its 30 percent cut of revenue, counts as monopolistic behavior. US District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers had previously rejected a similar request by Epic, and appeared to remain unmoved at Monday's hearing. The judge said she didn't expect a trial over the dispute to start until July of next year, at the earliest, given her calendar. She advised Apple and Epic to request a jury to hear the case ...
