Ja’neh’s Impeachment Trial to Commence Late November?

first_imgAssociate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh fate to be decided on Thursday, February 14, 2019.-Authoritative Senate Source hints Daily ObserverDays after voting to amend Rule #63 of the Standing Rules of the Liberian Senate, there are indications that, after all, the impeachment trial of embattled Supreme Court Justice Kabineh Ja’neh will go ahead in late November.The source, who is a member of the leadership of the Senate, informed the Daily Observer on late Monday, November 12, that legal minds close to the Senate are currently preparing what is expected to be used as a timeline for the trial, which he said may commence before the last sitting of this extraordinary session and will run into December.“In fact, we are expected to start seeing activities towards that ill-advised legal maneuvering as early as this week; but we will remain resolute that there are more legitimate and pressing national issues that need our urgent attention and intervention. The time is prudently not right for such a political issue as an impeachment of an Associate Justice,” the source declared.The source further said the next three weeks of the extraordinary session will transform the Senate Chamber into the busiest center for one of the most unprecedented legal battles for years to come.The Senate, through its Committee on Judiciary, last week voted to accept an amendment to Rule #63 of its Standing Rules, which was prepared to fall in compliance with Article 43 of the 1986 Constitution of Liberia, and would be used during impeachment trials for the President, Vice President, Chief Justice and Associate Justices, among others.Many legal luminaries told the Daily Observer that, though Justice Ja’neh will not be guilty of all that is contained in the impeachment document, he may once again set another legal record and even gain more popularity by resigning before the trial.It can be recalled that former Chief Justice Chea Cheapoo in the late 1980s, under the regime of President Samuel Kanyon Doe, was set up on bribery allegations and impeached; but he refused to face trial and resigned, saying: “I will not appear before that kangaroo court.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sophia, Ruimveldt squatters’ relocation looming – CH&PA

first_imgThe Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) is confident that it will be able to successfully remove squatters both in Ruimveldt and Sophia, Georgetown and will have them relocated to suitable areas.Government has still not managed to remove squatters at Broad and Lombard Streets, GeorgetownChief Executive Officer (CEO) Lelon Saul said work in this regard has started. According to him, lands have been identified in Cummings Lodge, East Coast Demerara for this project.“Some of the persons that are living in informal settlements that are not suitable, some of those persons are earmarked to be relocated there (Cummings Lodge),” he explained.The CEO reiterated that his agency has an overall plan to have all squatters relocated and reminded that they have been successful in some areas, but admitted that it will take some time.“The agency is currently working on a plan to develop additional areas and over a period of time, in the medium to long-term, we hope that we would be in a position to address the issue of squatting,” he said.But when questioned as to whether the relocation of squatters in areas which have proven to be difficult in past circumstances, particularly under the previous Governments, Saul said it will not deter them from trying.Saul told Guyana Times on Tuesday, “Once there is a will, there is a way.”But since February, the relocation process for the squatters at Broad and Lombard Streets, Georgetown has been put on hold as a result of resistance from Mocha Arcadia residents, among other issues.This is not the first time that squatters in that particular area have been presented with the option to relocate. In fact, previous attempts to have them removed from the area have proven unsuccessful.President David Granger had asked for the project to be placed on hold pending the outcome of the Commission of Inquiry into ancestral lands. Notwithstanding the request of the resident, the location was deemed inappropriate due to the unsuitable soil content at the relocation site.Some 68 adults and 100 children are living in the area under severe poverty and the land belongs to a private individual, who has been granted a judgement against the squatters in the High Court. They were supposed to be relocated to Barnwell North, but the residents of Mocha Arcadia, East Caost Demerara held protests over it.The Department of Housing, in collaboration with the Food For The Poor (FFTP) organisation, was expected to construct 72 homes for the squatters. Government said it will match the $42 million contribution by FFTP, but President Granger was not pleased with the current house model.Taking that into consideration, the CH&PA would be making slight alterations to create more space by adding a back patio and a shaded veranda to the house design. Each home was expected to cost $1.2 million and minister with responsibility for housing, Valerie Patterson-Yearwood said they were working out a plan with the prospective owners for them to stand the cost of water meters, among other.Despite these arrangements, some of the squatters are still opposed to relocating.Persons squatting along the embankment of the East and West Front Road were also earmarked for relocation. When the idea was presented to the squatters in 2017 by the new Government, they out rightly opposed it and had asked for their present location to be regularised.However the Communities Ministry along with the CH&PA said this move would have serious environmental implications and other issues. The previous Government had discussed plans to have these squatters relocated at La Parfaite Harmonie, West Bank Demerara and on the East Bank Demerara.Government through the CH&PA has been working aggressively to either remove squatters or regularise areas that can be regularised. These exercises are being carried out across the country and in communities including Sophia, Plantation Great Diamond, and Angoy’s Avenue, among others. (Samuel Sukhnandan)last_img read more

Berbice accident victim out of ICU

first_imgFamily members of 26-year-old accident victim Irfaan Ahmad, who was on life support after being struck down by a motorcar, are now elated after the young father was removed from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).Georgetown Public Hospital CorporationRelatives told Guyana Times that this is the first indication that the young man’s condition is improving. The doctors have, however, informed the family that they will continue to monitor his progress.Now that he is warded, his relatives have some hope. Ahmad had suffered a broken hip, broken legs and arms, swelling in his brain, and spinal injuries after he was struck down at Sheildstown, West Coast Berbice (WCD) while making his way home from work at the Blairmont Estate two Wednesdays ago.Irfaan AhmadHowever, the driver of the motorcar, an overseas-based Guyanese, who had attempted to escape the scene of the crime but was subsequently apprehended, is yet to be charged with the crime.According to Ahmad’s sister, it was only after several inquiries were made at the Blairmont Police Station that ranks went to the scene of the accident to take measurements. This was two days after the incident occurred. Shabeena Ahmad revealed that her family was then told by an investigating rank that the driver cannot be charged since Ahmad has not succumbed.“She tell me that we can’t charge the man because your brother still alive, that we have to wait to see what happen with my brother,” the woman revealed.Further, she told this publication that her family made inquiries as to whether the man’s passport has been confiscated by Police since he does not reside in Guyana but this also elicited a vague response.“The Police tell we that she can’t tell we that, but I don’t understand how we brother deh battling for he life but they aren’t telling us anything. Only Sunday they even bother to go and take measurements on the road when he get knock down since Wednesday…she called me this morning (Wednesday) again to find out my brother condition. Like maybe to find out if he passed away but I can’t understand how only then the driver can be charged when he already attempted the escape the scene, how wasn’t he charged with that?” the woman questioned.She noted that her family is fearful because if the driver escapes, justice will not be served.last_img read more

Guardiola defends City celebrations after derby win

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola (C-R) celebrates with midfielder Phil Foden (C-L) at the end of the English Premier League football match against Manchester United on December 10, 2017 © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 12 – Pep Guardiola has defended Manchester City’s celebrations after the Premier League leaders beat fierce rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford, saying they were “definitely not” over the top.United boss Jose Mourinho was unhappy with City’s reaction after their 2-1 win on Sunday and made his feelings known outside the visitors’ dressing room on the way to his post-match interviews. In the ugly scenes following the game, Mourinho reportedly had milk and water thrown at him and City assistant coach Mikel Arteta sustained a cut to his head.City and United are holding internal investigations and have until 1800 GMT on Wednesday to present their accounts to the Football Association.The governing body will then determine whether there is enough evidence to pursue charges against specific individuals and/or the clubs themselves.Guardiola admitted he encouraged his players to celebrate but said they were not extravagant, adding they were confined to the visitors’ dressing room.“I encouraged the players to celebrate… but of course inside the locker room,” he said.“We have huge respect for our opponents, not just for Manchester United, all the opponents. Football and life is not about when we lose, (then) you have to accept the defeat.”Guardiola was asked if there was anything extravagant about City’s celebrations that might have provoked a reaction from United but he replied: “No, definitely not. Believe me, definitely not.“It was the same as the Southampton game. It was 96 minutes and something like that but were ready. We were happy. Believe me, we were happy.“We won a derby against Manchester United. At that the moment the biggest rival we have to win it. So people expect we are not going to celebrate? No, we celebrate.”“And after what happened, happened,” he added. “Hopefully it cannot not happen again. What happened, we make the statement to the FA investigation and they are going to decide.”City’s win at Old Trafford took them 11 points clear of United, their nearest challengers at the top of the table.Victory away to Swansea City on Wednesday would give them a record 15th consecutive Premier League win.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Liverpool transfer update: Reds scouts watch duo and striker eyes January move

first_imgFollowing the utterly ridiculous events that unfolded on Saturday lunchtime in the 5-4 win at Norwich, Liverpool could do worse than turn to the transfer market to remedy some clear deficiencies.Their weaknesses, particularly in defence and in goal, were exposed emphatically yet again with the Reds now conceding seven goals from the last eight shots they’ve faced in the Premier League.The five goals at Carrow Road papered over some cracks in attack too, with the Merseysiders managing just 30 goals in 23 Premier League games so far this campaign.The January transfer window is usually a more anticlimactic event than the summer version, and Liverpool’s two recruits so far – Marjo Grujic and Steven Caulker on loan – support that theory.So will they choose to re-enter the market with a week to go?talkSPORT rounds up all the latest Liverpool gossip – click the yellow arrow above, right, to scan the rumours… 3. One goalkeeper in, one goalkeeper out? – The goalkeeping situation at Anfield is an interesting one. Simon Mignolet’s new five-year deal was greeted with mixed reviews to say the least, with many feeling he was signed on to protect his resale value. The Reds are still very much monitoring Barcelona stopper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, who is eyeing a Nou Camp departure to enhance his Euro 2016 hopes with Germany. The Sunday Mirror believe the Reds could make a late move in January to avoid increased competition for Ter Stegen in the summer. That would mean bad news for Adam Bogdan, who is already contemplating his Anfield future just six months after arriving, according to The Sun. Bogdan has looked out of his depth in his fleeting appearances this season and has failed to depose Mignolet from the number one spot. 4. Reds boost after Real Madrid approach is rejected – Liverpool have reportedly been put on red alert after Real Madrid were rebuffed by Partizan Belgrade following an approach for 19-year-old sensation Andriya Zivkovic. The Spanish giants were unsuccessful with an £11m bid for the youngest Serbian international in history after Zivkovic’s father rejected the move because he felt it would ruin his son’s career. Liverpool and Manchester City are subsequently now the frontrunners for the striker. 5 5. Jerome Sinclair looks to leave Anfield before the end of January – One player seemingly on his way out of Anfield is Jerome Sinclair, who has been linked with a move to Watford and several La Liga clubs. Considering Sinclair’s age – he’s only 19 – the club would be entitled to compensation if he were to leave when his contract expires in the summer, but only if he departs for another English club. The Telegraph claim Sinclair will tell the Reds he wants his exit to be finalised quickly, preferably before the end of the month. 5 5 5 1. Liverpool send scouts to watch Marseille duo – find out about four more Liverpool transfer stories by clicking the arrow above – In terms of their summer plans, Liverpool are actively looking at the Ligue 1 market. The Daily Mail believe the Reds sent scouts to watch £25m-rated Michy Batshuayi in Marseille’s win at Lyon on Sunday, with the Belgian striker also attracting interest from Manchester United and Arsenal. The Guardian claim Liverpool were also keeping an eye on Georges Kevin-Ndoulou who, like Batshuayi, has starred for Marseille this season. 5 2. Conflicting reports on Alex Teixeira negotiations – Liverpool’s pursuit of Alex Teixeira shows no signs of slowing down despite the Reds having a second bid – in the region of £28m – rejected last night, according to the Daily Mail. The gap in valuations between themselves and Shakhtar Donetsk looked like causing issues over any deal for the 26-goal striker, but reports this morning from ESPN Brazil suggest Liverpool are now willing to meet the Ukrainian club’s demands. That means Teixeira, who Shakhtar rate at £38m, could usurp Andy Carroll as the Merseysiders’ record signing last_img read more
