NAIROBI， Jan. 9 (Xinhua) -- Kenyan international Eric Ouma has quit domestic club Gor Mahia for Georgia after a breakthrough season where he forced his way into the country's national football team.
Ouma， 20， who is a marauding left-back who can also play in an advanced role， is reported to have penned a three-year deal with FC Kolkheti who play in the top flight competition of the European nation.
He rejected a trial with Belgian league side KAA Gent to sign with the Georgians who assured him a place in their first team with an option to move on after six months.
The deal for the promising Kenyan was brokered by the Sport Innovation Agency which is managed by Roger Henrotay， a former Belgian international.
Henrotay's agency is reputed for representing among others English Premier League leaders Chelsea goal-keeper Thibaut Courtois and Everton FC winger Kevin Mirallas.
Ouma signed an initial six-month deal with Gor， the record 15-time Kenyan domestic champions who lost their crown last season after holding on to it for three years in a row to rivals Tusker FC.
In June， Gent came calling but the player who made his debut for the national team in the same month opted to extend his stay at the country's most popular club for the same period where he was aiming to sign off as a domestic double winner.
However， it was not to be after Tusker swept both league and GOtv Shield domestic cup titles as Gor ended trophy-less hastening Ouma's decision to move on.
"Everyone in Africa dreams of playing in Europe and I' m no exception. I want to fully utilize my potential in better leagues， we have players in Europe who are of the same age playing competitively and I'm no different，" Ouma said.
"When I joined Gor in December 2015， I had an aim of moving to USA for studies by April that's why we opted for six months. It didn't materialize and in June， I got an offer to join Gent in Belgium but I decided to stay because I wanted to win titles with Gor especially the league and the GOTv Shield，" the player said.
He has been an integral part of the Kenyan national team that has gone seven matches unbeaten after missing out on qualification for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations that starts in Gabon on Jan. 14. Enditem
BEIJING Men's Nike Air VaporMax Grey White UK , Aug.？30 (Xinhuanet) -- Courts are facing an increasing number of family dispute cases involving non-Chinese partners, and an awareness of foreign laws is becoming essential for Chinese residents marrying foreigners.
With rapid economic development, more Chinese have married foreigners and, as a result, disputes over money and children have risen, the Supreme People's Court said.
Courts handled 5 Men's Nike Air VaporMax Black Gold UK ,272 family cases involving foreigners in 2013, a 26 percent year-on-year increase, the court said.
The cases mainly concerned divorce, property rights and the upbringing of and access to children, the court said.
A basic awareness of foreign laws - especially those concerning a spouse's nationality - as well as potential cultural differences, would be of immense benefit Men's Nike Air Presto Safari Black Yellow UK , said Zhang Yongjian, chief judge of the civil department under the top court.
"After all, we have different cultures and legal systems from other countries," Zhang said, suggesting that pre-nuptial agreements or understandings over certain issues should be reached before the wedding day.
Han Mei, a judge in the department Men's Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra White Black UK , said that in many Western countries, including the United States and Britain, the partner who is not granted custody of the children after a divorce is no longer the legal guardian, which is different from the situation in China.
"We often handle cases where divorced Chinese mothers who don't get custody of their children have brought the children back to China, but this isn't allowed or legal if their divorce is recognized in Western countries," Han said. "Foreign fathers can appeal to the courts Men's Nike Air Max TN Black Blue UK , claiming that the mother abducted the children."
A basic understanding of the marital laws in force in a foreign spouse's country is essential, she said.
Liu Li, a judge at Beijing Chaoyang District People's Court, confirmed that the number of family disputes involving foreigners has risen, along with the value of property and assets in contention.
In a recent case, a Canadian man and Chinese woman appeared before the court contesting 5 billion yuan ($811 million) in assets Men's Nike Air Max TN Red Navy UK , including property and stocks, Liu said.
In financial terms, it is the largest dispute handled by the court.
"Divorce cases involving foreigners are challenging for courts because many countries are not bound by Chinese law or verdicts," she said, adding that this can lead to delays in finalizing a divorce.
In one high-profile case, Li Yang Women's Nike Air Max TN Black Pink UK , known for the Crazy English language-learning method, and his ex-wife Kim Lee, from the United States, took more than two years to break up and are still involved in sorting out property, she said.
"There is a problem in sending judicial documents to foreign litigants who are not in China or cannot provide accurate home addresses.
"Foreign divorce disputes may take a court half a year or even more to conclude, far longer than cases between two Chinese people 2017 Men's Nike Air Max Flair Black Grey UK ," Liu said.
Cultural differences also play a role, she said, citing a case involving a Chinese woman and a man from the Middle East.
"The couple had a good relationship before they had a baby. The man's mother had different opinions from the Chinese mother on bringing up the child. Tension escalated and finally affected the marriage," Liu said.
Zhang Weibo, a lawyer specializing in foreign marriage cases, said some people do not live with their foreign partners after getting married Men's Nike Air Max 97 OG GS All White UK , or there might be an age gap, which can lead to incompatibility.
