BRITAIN CORRECTS WORLD CUP HOOLIGAN BLUNDER

0

LONDON: The British government has corrected a blunder in which it barred 2,500 of England’s most notorious football hooligans from just the opening day of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, a newspaper said on Sunday (Monday in the Philippines). Police Minister Damian Green signed a legal document that would have left them “free to cause mayhem,” The Mail on Sunday said, had one of his team not later spotted the error. The statutory instrument forces known hooligans to surrender their passports between certain dates. It initially said the travel ban would start on June 2 — 10 days before the opening ceremony — and end on June 13, rather than July 13.
