It later was filed by police as an assault and Mr Martens who alerted the emergency services said he was in an argument with his son in law and hit him with a baseball bat.Leaving court on Thursday, Ms Martens was said to be in floods of tears and in another late development, her legal team filed an appeal on the decision of the court.However, in this tragic twist, the Corbett family were only informed of the development on Friday morning.John Corbett, Jason’s brother, who was speaking on Limerick’s Live95fm, said the decision to appeal is very calculating,“It just shows you the pure callousness and coldness of the Martens family, especially Molly Martens in this desperate attempt to try and prevent my brother’s children to return to their true family because a senior family court judge decided that the long term future and care of Sarah and Jack would be the most beneficial with his true family in Ireland”.He said the latest actions were “cruel”, and that Ms Marten should not have taken it this far.John Corbett claimed that there is only one reason why Molly Martens has lodged the appeal.“The only reason, the whole family feels, that Molly Martens is desperately trying to get custody of my nephew and niece is because there is a possible pending criminal prosecution against her and other members of her family for the murder of my brother.“It’s a very very sinister agenda indeed.”The appeal goes against the comments of the Clerk of the superior court whose decision is below.The Corbett family have now been put on hold again from returning to Ireland to bury their brother and the family are said to be again traumatised on this latest twist.

Suarez goals tally up to 15

first_img The Uruguay international’s strike from distance took a deflection off Joey O’Brien and went down as an own goal by the defender. However, the Premier League’s Dubious Goals Panel has now decided the goal should be credited to Suarez, who had already scored once in the game. Liverpool striker Luis Suarez has extended his lead as the Barclays Premier League’s top scorer after being awarded a second goal in last weekend’s 4-1 win over West Ham. It takes the 26-year-old’s tally in the league to 15 – three better than Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero – and those goals have helped fire Liverpool into second place. But Suarez has scored his in just 10 matches as he missed the first five games as a result of his suspension for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic being carried over into this season. By contrast, Aguero’s 12 have come in 14 league matches. The Premier League panel also confirmed Liverpool’s second goal in the West Ham game will be Mamadou Sakho’s first for the club despite Martin Skrtel insisting afterwards he had got the final touch. Suarez is set to face England at the 2014 World Cup and former Liverpool player and manager Kenny Dalglish, who signed the striker from Ajax in January 2011 for £22.85million in his second spell as Reds boss, believes he will terrorise England defenders at next summer’s tournament. “I would have thought that when the World Cup draw was made there were a few English defenders thinking ‘Oh no, I’ve got to play him again – it’s bad enough twice during the season’,” he told liverpoolfc.com. “You couldn’t write the script. People glossed over the second goal he scored against Norwich because of the brilliance of the other three, but the technique for the second goal was fantastic as well. “Luis has been fantastic. He’s a great entertainer and he’s a humble guy. “He’s somebody that really enjoys working in training, he is never a problem in training and he’s fantastic on the pitch. “It’s a real joy to see him play sometimes. The goals he has scored have been hugely influential on the position that Liverpool are holding in the league at the moment.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
