Speaker Tyler Booed

first_imgHouse Speaker Alex Tyler was thoroughly ridiculed when he appeared at Criminal Court ‘C’ at the Temple of Justice for his alleged involvement in bribery as reported by Global Witness.As the Speaker was emerging from the courtroom, a huge crowd which gathered in the courtyard were heard chanting, “Big rogue, big rogue,” referring to him as one of the most corrupt officials in the Unity Party led Government.Others in the crowd shouted, “Criminal lawmaker, criminal Speaker,” among other humiliating words.Speaker Tyler, Grand Cape Mount County Senator Varney Sherman and others are implicated in recent reports published by Global Witness alleging that Sable Mining gave bribes to create a loophole in the Liberian law so that the British company could successfully negotiate for concession rights to operate the Wologizi mines in Lofa County.The House Speaker’s past records were also recalled in the booing, with the crowds making references to the US$25,000 scandal in which Cllr. Michael Allison met his death, and another US$10,000 allegation surrounding him in the House of Representatives.Shouts from the crowd also branded Speaker Tyler as a man who was doing peasantry business but has now become prosperous through corrupt practices as a lawmaker and Speaker of the House of Representatives.In a related development, partisans of the ruling Unity Party and their Chairman, Senator Varney Sherman achieved their goal when instead of facing the taskforce set up by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to investigate him and others for bribery, went to the court as he had demanded earlier.Senator Sherman had insisted that he will not appear before the taskforce but preferred to go to the court with any party that has a case against him.UP partisans were jubilating and terming the role of the taskforce as “illegal” while others believed to be opposition to the ruling party were referring to Cllr. Sherman and the rest as “Criminals.”After the appearance of Cllr. Sherman, partisans of Unity Party led by Wilmot Paye, Secretary General and Amos Tweh, chair of the youth league, were also seen moving in the square of Criminal Court, ‘C’ while Chairman Sherman sat in the office of the Sheriff.“This is the quest of Senator Sherman to come to the court instead of the President’s Taskforce, which other people are questioning and we are happy that he is here. We believe strongly that our chairman is innocent of this Global Witness Report, and we pledge our full support to him,” one partisan said. Prince Kamara, a member of the Unity Party said, “We are here to provide maximum support to the chairman and we will continue because our chairman is not to be disgraced publicly for US$950,000. This is just peanut money to disgrace a chairman of a ruling party. And we continue to say that the situation is political and we will ensure that this process dies naturally.” According to partisans of the Unity Party, the fight against corruption is not all-inclusive as other officials who stole millions of dollars, including President Sirleaf’s son, Robert, continue to enjoy without facing the law.“The President is playing a political game, because she is not ready to fight corruption but just to make our chairman look ugly. This is unfortunate and disgraceful to drag a chairman of a ruling party to court because someone wants to score a political goal,” said Prince Kamara. Cllr. Sherman who spent about four hours at the court was released after filing his bond.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Local pharmacies caught selling substandard, falsified drugs

first_imgThe Government Analyst Food and Drug Department (GA-FDD) has made shocking discoveries of substandard and falsified (SF) medicinal drugs stocked on the shelves of nine local pharmacies, which were being retailed to consumers across Georgetown and its environs.The Department informed that 16 pharmacies were visited within the course of last Thursday and Friday, where the low quality drugs were unearthed. Among the findings were 17 boxes of ‘Chanca Piedra Phosmovite’, labelled with the manufacturer’s address as Mainland Labs, located in Canada. Its usage intended to treat kidney stones, and cleaning of the liver and urinary tract.Meanwhile, 28 boxes of ‘Fungabort’ were discovered, claiming to serve as nail fungus treatment and also manufactured by Mainland Labs; while 23 packages of Phosferine were seized after the manufacturer, Phosferine Health Care Company, could not be verified. For this, all products were removed from the premises.The GA-FDD positioned that pharmacies found with these questionable products could not provide receipts of purchase to the inspectors. As such, it was clearly a breach of the Consumer Affairs Act.“This is a clear breach of the Consumer Affairs Act section 18: 1-3. It is also a breach of the Food and Drug’s Act, Part VI, Chapter 21 section (C and D), which speaks to adequate record keeping for traceability purposes particularly for the sale of medication for patient use,” the Food and Drug Department stated.A strict warning was sent out to all drugstore outlets to desist from purchasing and retailing products from sources who cannot provide valid receipts or invoices. Generally, these acts are committed by ‘suitcase traders’ who walk and sell their goods.“The Department is advising all pharmacies to, with immediate effect, desist from the practice of purchasing and retailing medication to be used by patients from walk-in-salesmen (suitcase traders) who refuse to provide invoices or adequate receipt or other records for traceability purposes. Inspectors will continue to seize and detain items with inaccurate addresses and where the identity of the wholesaler or distributor is unknown”.To prevent such occurrences in the future, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) was called in to investigate the matter. Complaints were filed that persons have been manufacturing or importing low quality medications, which are later introduced on the local markets.In 2017, Government had announced that all drug suppliers would be mandated to register their drugs with the GA-FDD, in keeping with the new drug procurement systems.The inferior medications that were found at local pharmaciesThe inferior medications that were found at local pharmaciesThe inferior medications that were found at local pharmacieslast_img read more

The silent treatment at Guantanamo

first_imgLawyers said many of the relationships appeared to have deteriorated as the detainees’ legal cause has suffered setbacks in Congress and the courts, and as Justice Department officials have begun efforts to limit lawyers’ access to detainees, raising new concerns among the detainees about their lawyers’ effectiveness. “Every lawyer is afraid, every time they go down there, that their clients won’t see them,” said Mark P. Denbeaux, a professor at Seton Hall University School of Law who represents two Guantanamo detainees. “And it’s getting worse, because it’s pretty hard to say we’re offering them anything.” The situation is awkward for the lawyers, who have become a considerable force, not only in the courts but also in legislative, diplomatic and public debates about detention policies. Tense relationships or outright resistance from their clients could undercut their credibility and complicate their legal work. The Justice Department, in a recent court filing, asked a federal appeals court to limit the number of times lawyers challenging detention could visit detainees and to allow officials to read lawyers’ mail to detainees. Some of the lawyers said that court fight would be likely to further weaken their ties to some detainees because it raised questions about whether their communications would be confidential and whether they would be able to continue to see their clients. Some detainees are clearly cooperating with their lawyers and are engaged in regular dialogue with them. In interviews, some lawyers denied there were problems in their relationships with detainees or declined to discuss the difficulties, saying such information would embolden the government. But other lawyers estimated that a third or more of the detainees who have worked with lawyers in cases challenging their detention are now resisting cooperating with them. Many of the detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are no longer cooperating with their lawyers, adding a largely invisible struggle between the lawyers and their own clients to the legal battle over the Bush administration’s detention policies. Some detainees refuse to see their lawyers, while others decline mail from their lawyers or refuse to provide them information on their cases, according to court documents, writings of some of the detainees and recent interviews. The detainees’ resistance appears to have been fueled by frustration over their long detention and suspicion about whether their lawyers are working for the government, as well as anti-American sentiment, some of the documents and interviews show. “Your role is to polish Bush’s shoes and make the picture look good,” a Yemeni detainee, Adnan Farhan Abdullatif, 31, wrote his lawyer in February. Some of the lawyers accuse Guantanamo officials of feeding the detainees’ suspicions regarding their lawyers, a charge Pentagon officials deny. Of 10 detainees publicly identified by military prosecutors as targets of possible war-crimes charges, many, if not most, have either refused U.S. lawyers entirely or are uncooperative. Some of those detainees face possible life sentences.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Keep off my players, Kerr warns agents

first_imgFerreira is said to be keen on re-uniting with the three at his new club in Albania, KF Tirana according to Albanian press.“Not unless they come in with three million dollars for Kenneth, I am not ready to listen to anything. People are trying to take his focus away and trying to unsettle the player. It is not right especially for someone under contract. He still has two years left and they should respect that,” a dejected Kerr told Capital Sport.He added; “I have been informed that they are also interested in Jack and Walusimbi, but this is not the time. Their contracts end in January and they should not be doing that at this time.”Muguna came on as a first half substitute in Gor Mahia’s 2-0 win over Muhoroni over the weekend and missed last Wednesday’s win over Nakumatt where Kerr openly complained about his absence in training.Gor Mahia midifielder Kenneth Muguna dribbles during a training session at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.He reveals that he kept him on the bench in the Muhoroni match because he thought he was not 100 percent focused and only had to bring him on after 27 minutes when Anthony Mbugua picked up a hamstring strain.“I will deal with the matter. I have spoken to Kenneth and told him what I think. He is a young boy but it is not good when people try to get his mind twisted. He has to trust me because football is a short career and you have to make the right decisions,” the tactician further added.Despite the off-pitch issues, Kerr continued with his perfect start at Gor, leading the club to a third straight win and opening up a four point gap at the apex. Kerr though is still concerned that his strikers are not firing in with the rate he wants.“It is frustrating because we have to kill teams early. We create chances, but we simply can’t get the right technique to score and we are wasteful in the final third. But at least it’s good we kept another clean sheet,” the coach commented.He was however impressed with the effort and energy put in by the players and will now analyze the three games he has been in charge in to narrow down to specifics as the league enters its business end.With a game in hand, Gor will have a four point buffer for the next one week with second placed Posta Rangers having dropped three points with a 0-1 loss at the hands of Nzoia Sugar in Bungoma.-Posta slowed down-Thirsty for the title: Posta Rangers head coach Sammy Omollo has warned that his team is a strong title contender.Posta head coach Sammy Omollo had insisted that his side is a serious title contender and despite the Nzoia loss, he has reiterated they will not give up the fight to push for their first ever league title.For Nzoia, it was their third consecutive win and second at home having beaten soldiers Ulinzi Stars back to back before facing Posta. The victory took them to seventh with 27 points, 10 behind leaders Gor.Ulinzi meanwhile continued with their struggles, losing for a third consecutive time for the first time since 2008. Losing twice consecutively against Nzoia, Ulinzi tumbled once again with a 1-0 loss at the hands of Nakumatt at their Afraha Stadium backyard.“I really don’t understand what’s happening because in the last two matches, we have conceded very late goals. We dominate the game, play well, create chances, lose them and then with a very small mistake at the end, we are punished. It is disheartening,” Ulinzi head coach Benjamin Nyangweso said.Ulinzi dipped to sixth, a massive drop having held on to the apex just three weeks ago. They face leaders Gor Mahia at home in their next match and Nyangweso hopes they can prevent a fourth consecutive red result.Defending champions Tusker FC meanwhile bounced back from a run of five winless matches, beating Western Stima 2-1 at the Kinoru Stadium in Meru with two penalties from Stephen Owusu.The victory hoisted them to third with 32 points, five behind leaders Gor. Head coach George Nsimbe says the win, though not the cleanest he expected will give them the much needed confidence to bounce up back into the race to defend their crown.-Sofapaka make statement-Sofapaka FC players walk out of the pitch after a past Kenyan Premier League match.Sofapaka also stuck up their title ambitions in the sky with a resounding 3-0 win over Thika United, even in the absence of their head coach Sam Ssimbwa who was on a short trip back to his native Uganda.Assistant coach John Baraza took over the mantle and he ensured the ship remained steady as Batoto ba Mungu seek their first league title since 2009.KPL Weekend resultsSaturday: Gor Mahia 2 Muhoroni Youth 0 (Moi Stadium Kisumu), Kakamega Homeboyz 2 Kariobangi Sharks 1 (Mumias Complex).Sunday: Ulinzi Stars 0 Nakumatt FC 1, Sofapaka 3 Thika United 0, AFC Leopards 0 Bandari 1 (Afraha Stadium, Nakuru), Chemelil Sugar 1 Zoo Kericho 1 (Chemelil Complex), Nzoia Sugar 1 Posta Rangers 0 (Sudi Stadium, Bungoma), SoNy Sugar 1 Mathare United 1 (Awendo Stadium), Tusker FC 2 Western Stima 1 (Kinoru Stadium, Meru).0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr conducts a training session at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam before the team faced Everton FC in a friendly match in July 2017NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 7- Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr has warned player agencies in the city approaching his players to keep off, complaining they are taking the focus off his personnel at a time when they are focused on taking back the Kenyan Premier League title.Focus has been on three players; reigning KPL player of the year Kenneth Muguna, Rwandese international Jacques Tuyisenge and left back Godfrey Walusimbi who are subjects of interest from their former coach Jose Marcelo Ferreira.last_img read more

UNANIMOUS BACKING AS MICHAEL MURPHY RECEIVES CIVIC RECEPTION

first_imgMichael Murphy listens to tributes being paid to him at council chambers in Lifford today.Michael Murphy was the toast of his native Donegal today when he received a civic reception in honour of his sporting achievements.The 24 year old Glenswilly man has packed more into his career already than most veterans would hope to achieve in a lifetime.Michael was surrounded by family and friends as he received the honour at council chambers in Lifford. As well as his proud mother and father Mick and Mary, Michael was accompanied by his grandfather, 85 year old Joe Hutchinson from Buncrana.Mayor of Donegal Cllr Ian McGarvey said young people should look to Michael if they wanted to make their families proud.Michael’s father Mick said he was delighted for his son and paid tribute to the GAA star’s mother Mary.“There is no way around it. I am delighted for all the great things that have been said about Michael but I have to reveal that his mother has him spoiled including allowing him to get as much sleep as he can.” Michael himself said he was completely taken by surprise by the honour.“I was shocked, I always thought these events were for people in the later years. But I do appreciate it.“I have been very fortunate as a footballer and a person to have achieved what I have.“I have been fortunate to have such a good family, such a good club and such good friends.“I would like to thank my mother and father. Some people say I am spoiled and maybe I am but I would like to think it has made me what I am today,” he said. Mayor McGarvey said “He was nominated by Cllr Ciaran Brogan and it was backed 100% by all the members who recognised the achievements of this young man.“People ask themselves who they can be. All they have to do is to look at how Michael has conducted himself.“I know the dedication he has had to put in but it shows that the dedication can p[ay off in the end,” he said.Liam Ward, Director of Services at Donegal County Council said he had watched Michael from a very early age – and was not always happy to have done so. “This is very proud moment for Michael and his family an his entire community of Glenswilly for what is a tremendous and proud day.“There can be no more special way than is bestowed on him today.“It was a special time for Donegal when we won the All Ireland final and the council recognizes that and the part sport plays in everyday life.“The council has recognised a lot of other sports including kick-boxing, hurling and soccer.“We are living in challenging times and it is important for our young people to have outlets to express their talents and skills.“It is also important for them to have role models. In Michael we have that.“I have watched Michael playing from Under 12 level right up to senior level.“I have to say I wasn’t always supporting him. I do remember from being involved with Glenfin GAA club coming off the wrong end of a defeat with Michael having scored a personal tally of 1-12,” he said.Cllr Ciaran Brogan said it was his honour to be able to nominate Michael for the civic reception.“I decided because of the huge contribution to football and how he has changed the lives of many that I would nominate him.“I can say today that Michael Murphy has and will changed the lives of many people. Sometimes we leave it too late to recognise people but I think it is important that we embrace it now.“He is an only child but can you imagine what we could have done if Mick and Mary had have had half a dozen children,” he said.Cllr Noel McBride, of Fine Gael, said everyone around Ireland and further afield knew the name Michael Murphy for all the right reasons.“You are probably one of the best-known footballers in the 32 counties. No matter where we go we are asked about you and the name of Michael Murphy comes up.“We can all be so proud of how you have elevated out county.“You always say it is a team effort but you played a very large part of that.“You have done us so proud and we thank you today.“I simply ask you to savour the moment. It is a big day for you and your family,” he said.Cllr Mick Quinn of Sinn Fein said he had known Michael for a long time as a neighbour of his from Glenswilly.He said anytime he sees him on TV or hears him on radio, he is proud to say he is one of ours.“He is the topic of conversation in households all over Donegal and I have that myself in my own house.“As well as having a footballing talent he also has the dedication that is needed to hone that talent.“But it is the respect that he shows for everyone is that people remember him by. He is a hugely decent human being.“There is a summer camp in Glenswilly and the highlight of that is the last day because the kids know that Michael is going to turn up.“The amount of time that he puts aside for his local community is amazing,” he said.Cllr John Campbell spoke on behalf of the Independents.“It used to be when I was going to college that people spoke of Donegal and Daniel O’Donnell but it is now Michael Murphy.“The commitment that you give to young people in your community and across Donegal is immense.“I feel your best years have yet to come and I feel you will be back here again with an even biggest list of honours,” he said.Cllr Martin Farren, on behalf of the Labour Party, said it was no accident that he was such a good footballer as he was a third cousin!“I know your grandfather Joe is very proud and your late grandmother Sheila was so proud of you.“I would just like to wish you all the best for the future,” he said.UNANIMOUS BACKING AS MICHAEL MURPHY RECEIVES CIVIC RECEPTION was last modified: December 16th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:civic receptionDonegal County CouncilglenswillyMichael Murphylast_img read more
