Robert F Kennedy’s killer to be released from prison after the late senator’s sons voted in his favour

U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy's assassin was granted parole Friday, August 27, after two of RFK's sons spoke in his favor. Sirhan Sirhan, 77, who was convicted of fist-degree murder, has served 53 years for murdering Kennedy, then a contender for the Democratic presidential nomination. On Friday, August 27, a California parole board panel voted in favor of Sirhan B. Sirhan’s request for release from prison on parole. It was Sirhan’s 16th parole hearing. Since California abolished capital punishment in 1972, and Sirhan’s sentence was changed to life, he has been eligible for release since 1975. The decision by the parole board was a major victory for the 77-year-old prisoner, though it does not assure his release. The ruling by the two-person panel at Sirhan’s 16th p...

Christian Eriksen: UEFA Under Attack Over Midfielder’s Condition

  Former Manchester United goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel, has criticised UEFA for their ‘ridiculous’ decision to play on with Denmark’s Euro 2020 tie against Finland on Saturday after Christian Eriksen’s collapse.
