Since becoming chief, Morales has pledged to improve the Police Department’s relationship with minorities and to be more transparent with cases of officer misconduct.Morales said Monday that raw video footage from all body cameras was released solely to Brown’s attorneys last week. Additional videos will be released to those filing public records requests once statutory requirements have been reached, Morales said in a statement.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water recedinglast_img read more

Ambassador Pacifici: A Truly Distinctive Mark

first_imgLiberia has been extremely fortunate to have Ambassador Atilio Pacifici serve as the European Union envoy for the past five years.  This was a critical period for a country just emerging from a terrible civil conflict that not only killed nearly 300,000 people, but devastated the country’s infrastructure and shattered her  international relations. One of the effects of this was the fact that many of the country’s traditional partners closed their embassies near Monrovia.  This included our oldest diplomatic partner, the United Kingdom, the first nation, as far back as 1848, to establish diplomatic relations with Liberia.  The next oldest diplomatic partner, Germany, scaled down its mission, and turned over its plush compound in Congotown to the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL).  The European Union, too, scaled down its operations here and Liberia lost her ownership of the National Authorizing Office (NAO), which was transferred to La Cote d’Ivoire.  It was that country which was performing the duties of the NAO for Liberia, in managing the European Development Fund allocation for the country, since the NAO powers had been revoked.  In addition, several other embassies relocated to other parts of West Africa, plunging Liberians into the painful, humiliating and costly experience of having to travel to other West African countries to obtain visas to enter Europe.   Things began to change with the arrival of Ambassador Pacifici in 2009.  Before she performed the Investiture upon the EU envoy last Thursday, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf said that his arrival five years ago coincided with the coming into force of the Lisbon Treaty that saw the EU Office transformed into a full-fledged EU Delegation to Liberia.  “Our partnership,” she said, “went from humanitarian assistance to development cooperation.” It was also during his tenure that the Liberia-EU dialogue and many other initiatives were realized,” President Sirleaf added.Speaking on that occasion also, Liberia’s Finance and Development Planning Minister Amara Konneh said Ambassador Pacifici, soon after his arrival in Liberia, began supporting us in “the rebuilding of a credible and competent NAO.  For this reason, said Minister Konneh, “we can now look forward to the next envelope of EUR 279 million in EU support,” from 2005-2020.  This, according to the Minister, “represents a 73% increase in the EDF allocation for Liberia.”Describing Ambassador Pacifici as “not just a partner, but a dependable friend and a true advocate for Liberia, Minister Konneh noted that during Pacifici’s tenure, the country witnessed a gradual increase in direct budget support amounting to EUR40 million and, just for the health sector, EUR35 million.  He also assisted in reestablishing the flow of Liberian forestry and other projects to Europe, which had been cancelled during the Taylor years when Liberia’s resources were terribly managed.When Ebola hit Liberia, “the Ambassador responded quickly,” said Konneh.  “He advocated strongly with the EU Headquarters for increased budget support for Liberia.”  The result: US$35 million into GOL’s budget since Ebola.Ambassador Pacifici took an active interest in the improvement of West Point, Monrovia’s sprawling slum.  Not only did he initiate a water project in the township.  He also took an interest in the project for the building of a modern Town Hall initiated by Daily Observer publisher Kenneth Y. Best on the occasion of his 75th birth anniversary.  At the groundbreaking ceremony for the project Ambassador Pacifici pledged that the EU Delegation would do everything possible to ensure its realization.Not many diplomats are able to leave so distinctive a mark after serving at a post as has Ambassador Pacifici.  The President said he had approached his work with the passion and precision of the engineer that he is.Yes, we can say that this Ambassador was able to accomplish what he did because he undertook his work with engineering discipline.  We are sure that wherever he is assigned in the future, he will leave another mark of distinction.Our hope is that we in Liberia will make the best possible use of what Ambassador Pacifici has left us.  Should we do this with all the assistance we are given by other development partners and with our own self-generated resources, we would be on the march to development and modernization. But OH Liberians!  Given last Friday’s demonstration that sent Monrovia “crazy,” can we ever become a disciplined people?  May God grant.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

4 Former FDA Managers on Trial for US$6M PUP Fraud

first_imgIt appears that the Liberian government is getting serious about prosecuting individuals who are caught misapplying millions of United States dollars intended for the country’s development.This was clearly demonstrated yesterday at Criminal Court ‘C’ at the Temple of Justice where government lawyers have begun the prosecution of four of the seven former senior managers of the Forestry Development Authority (FDA), and a  senior surveyor, at the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy assigned in Grand Bassa County. Moses Wogbeh, the dismissed FDA Managing Director, along with Jangar Kamara, manager for commercial forestry, John Kortor, technical manager, Maxwell Gwee, director of cartography, David Blayee, senior surveyor assigned in Grand Bassa County were accused of facilitating the wrongful and illegal issuance of sixty-one Private Use Permits (PUPS) that authorized commercial logging operations on nearly 2.5 million hectares of farm land.They were further accused of “blatant abuse” of their respective offices and violation of several provisions of the National Forestry Reform Law (NFRL) 2006 and the Community Rights Law 2009, which caused government a loss in revenue of over US$6 million.The accused denied the charges when they were first arraigned before the court.The crimes for which they are being tried include economic sabotage, criminal conspiracy, forgery or counterfeiting, obtaining and issuing deceptive writings and obstruction of government functions by public servants. Testifying yesterday as prosecution second witness, James Dorbor Jallah, who chaired the Special Independent Investigative Body (SIIB), charged that in August 2012 defendants Wogbeh and Kamara, with the intent to defraud the Government and create an opportunity for the PUP holders to defraud government, disregarded the moratorium the President of Liberia placed on all PUPs.As for defendant Gwee, Jallah alleged he issued certificates of correction, which without authority, increased the allocation of land deeded and granted by President Sirleaf to land owners without the law.And for defendant Kortor, Jallah also claimed he personally received money from logging companies.Defendant Blayee, Jallah alleged, was discovered with many fraudulent verification letters under his signature claiming that the PUPs were granted to companies.Jallah, also head of the Public Procurement Concession Commission (PPCC) and a volunteer on the Ebola Incident Management Team, said that some of the investigative methods used included gathering experts’ opinions on the content and background of the PUPs, reviewing of the contract documents, interview with the defendants and visitations to PUP holders’ locations in a number of counties.He was quick to point out that his team did not investigate surveyor Blayee but he did not explain why the surveyor was not probed.When asked whether he knew all of the defendants, Jallah’s response was, “Yes I know all of them. There they are seated in the dock.”Asked what the responsibility of his committee was, the PPCC boss stated that PPCC was responsible for investigating the defendants over their alleged involvement in the wrongful and illegal issuance of PUPs.He said interviews were conducted in person and the defendants were informed that each of their statements would be recorded. “Each of them was duly informed that the conversation was recorded for future action or in a court of competent jurisdiction,” Jallah stated.He said, “They all agreed to be recorded and we went ahead.” The trial continues.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

US-based company among bidders for closed sugar estates

first_imgThe National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) on Thursday revealed it has received 10 bids, which include one from a Florida-based company with Middle Eastern investors for the privatisation of the three closed sugar estates in Guyana. This announcement comes following Government’s downsizing of the sugar industry, which has left thousands jobless, in an effort to reduce expenditure owing to the Guyana Sugar Corporation’s (GuySuCo) being cash-strapped.PwC official, Wilfred BaghalooUnited Kingdom-based PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) was tasked by the Finance Ministry’s Special Purposes Unit (SPU) to the value of three estates –Rose Hall, Skeldon and Enmore – which Government put up for privatisation. PwC partner, Wilfred B Baghaloo, who was appointed in March 2018 to oversee the process, held a press conference at NICIL’s Camp Street, Georgetown office on Thursday, where he told reporters that 12 companies obtained the Information Memoranda (IM) for the estates which was sold to bidders for US$1000. However, only 10 submitted bids.According to Baghaloo, the PwC will be working to determine if any of the investors are affiliated with each other as the SPU wanted the process to be competitive. The official, who originates from Jamaica told members of the press that the bidding process closed Wednesday, following the marketing period which started in July.Skeldon Sugar EstateThe official said that he could not have verified the names of the bidders but added that he would provide those names by today. The opening of the bids was observed by bidders, PwC, a team from the Auditor General’s office and members of the Steering Committee. Baghaloo said now that the bids have been opened, the second step is to analyse the bids in accordance to the evaluation criteria as outlined in the Information Memorandum. Thereafter, the PwC will make recommendations to the Steering Committee and NICIL which will then make recommendations to Cabinet.“Our intention is to say to the Staring Committee and the SPU in seven days that the bids we have received comply; then the evaluation should take some time,” the PwC official stated. The PricewaterhouseCoopers official while being tight-lipped on the names of the 10 investors said regional players also submitted bids. There was a pre-bid meeting held on September 25, 2018.“Major concerns of the potential investors related to regulations needed to ensure fair competition between Government, the functional of the factories and access to markets,” the PwC official highlighted.He added too that some were concerned if they would be getting “scrap metal” for their investment.An information memorandum which Guyana Times obtained showed the asset registry and land inventory for each estate. The document further outlined that Government is not obligated to accept any offer or bid though the reopening of the some of the factories was said to have sparked interest in the bidding process, especially from the international market. Investors visited the various estates since August, where they made assessments of the facilities as part of the preparation of their proposal to the Special Purposes Unit.The SPU under NICIL secured a $30 billion through commercials banks, both in Guyana and the region, as part of the diversification initiatives. The bond was secured solely by bondholders in the Government, and not against any assets of NICIL or GuySuCo. The commercial lending rate for Guyana at the time was 13.0 per cent, while the NICIL bond was issued at 4.75 per cent, which is 8.25 per cent lower than the rate that most companies borrow at in Guyana.The PwC, meanwhile, was awarded a $60 million contract to evaluate GuySuCo’s estates. The company was however handed a two-year ban earlier this year for allegedly overstating the earnings and assets of Indian software company Satyam Computer Services. PwC was the audit firm at the time the more-than US$1 billion fraud occurred. It was the founder of the company, Ramalinga Raju, who blew the whistle on the fraud in 2009, costing shareholders billions and shaking the industry.In its defence, the PwC affirmed that there was no “intentional” wrongdoing in the fraud at Satyam.last_img read more

Boxing: Mosley is sweet in triumph

first_imgBetter put, Mosley did a job on Collazo. Whereas it was Collazo who seemed to confuse Ricky Hatton when he nearly beat Hatton last May, Saturday it was Mosley who was perplexing Collazo with his magnificent skills. Mosley even dropped Collazo with a chopping right hand near the end of the 11th round. Collazo absorbed the punch, tried to stay on his feet but fell to the canvas after backstepping several feet. “Collazo is a tough fighter, a warrior,” the ever-classy Mosley said. “I knew I was faster than him and I could hit him with a quick jab. It felt good to be a welterweight again. I felt very light on my feet.” Vivian Harris, a former WBA super lightweight champion, earned the right to fight for the WBC super lightweight belt by winning a unanimous decision over Juan Lazcano in the semi-main event. Harris won the title elimination fight by scores of 115-112, 115-112 and 114-113. Billy “The Kid” Dib, a prospect from Sydney, Australia, is now 15-0 after winning a unanimous decision over Carlos Contreras in a 10-round preliminary lightweight fight. Dib won by three scores of 100-90. Contreras, of El Paso, Texas, is 20-13-3. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Utilizing a terrific combination of lightning speed, ring savvy and power, Mosley won the World Boxing Council interim welterweight belt with a unanimous decision over Luis Collazo before 5,761 Saturday at Mandalay Bay. Mosley won by scores of 119-108, 118-109 and 118-109. This newspaper scored Mosley the winner, 117-110. Collazo being a so-called slick southpaw, it figured that might prove problematic for Mosley, an orthodox fighter. But it was Mosley who was the slicker of the two. He spun away from trouble with deft moves, slipped inside for quick shots to the body without suffering much in the way of consequences, and he smashed Collazo repeatedly with a hard right cross to the head. Collazo (27-3) had a few good moments in the way of an occasional left cross. But he was simply out-classed by Mosley, who had already won world championships in the lightweight, welterweight and super welterweight divisions. “I hurt my left hand in the third round,” Collazo, 25, of Brooklyn said. “I hurt it in training camp. I wish I could have been more effective, but that was the best I could do.” Collazo didn’t exactly bestow a heap of praise on Mosley. “Shane came to fight,” Collazo said. “He did his job.” center_img LAS VEGAS – “Sugar” Shane Mosley talked like he had found the secret to eternal youth during a conference call last week. He said he was so fast at the age of 35, that it was scary. Well, perhaps Mosley has taken a drink from the fountain of youth. last_img read more

Westlake fire kills man, displaces 11

Armando Valencia told KABC (Channel 7) that the man appeared to have fallen asleep while smoking in bed, sparking the blaze. A 46-year-old resident with shortness of breath and singed hair told firefighters he tried to drag his 60-year-old neighbor — the reported fatality — to safety but was driven back by the heat and smoke, Humphrey said. Two children and nine adults living in the 10-unit building were displaced by the fire and referred to the American Red Cross for placement assistance, he said. The apartment where the blaze began did not appear to have functioning smoke alarms as required by law, Humphrey said, adding that the building was not equipped with fire sprinklers. Damages were estimated at $50,000 to the structure and $5,000 to contents, Humphrey said. WESTLAKE — A man who may have fallen asleep while smoking was killed today in a pre-dawn fire at a three-story apartment building in Westlake, fire officials said. Eleven people were displaced by the blaze reported at 4:07 a.m. in the 700 block of South Westlake Avenue, said Brian Humphrey, a Los Angeles Fire Department. It took seventy-one firefighters about 20 minutes to extinguished the flames, which where confined to one room on the second floor. While battling the fire, firefighters discovered the body of a man inside the room where the blaze began, firefighter David Ortiz said.

PLEASE DON’T BLAME STAFF FOR HOSPITAL’S CHRONIC SITUATION – BROGAN

first_imgDonegal County Councillor Ciaran Brogan said the current situation at Letterkenny General Hospital showed the hospital needs to be returned to a state-of-the-art facility as soon as possible.Cllr Brogan, a member of the HSE Western Health Forum, said he wanted to take nothing from the hard-working staff and management.But he said he wanted to remind people that the hospital is still in transition. And he also said that people should not lay the blame for overcrowding and patients on trolleys at the door of staff.“I appreciate that the situation is far from ideal and my sympathy is with people who find themselves in the hospital at present.“But I would ask people to remember that Letterkenny General Hospital is far from the finished product.“Staff and management are working under extreme pressure to deliver in an environment that is far from complete. Some parts of it are still a building site. “Since the hospital was severely flooded last summer, staff have done trojan work in trying to bring the hospital services back to normal.“If anything, on occasions like this when there is an increase in emergency patient numbers, it demonstrates the need to get the hospital back to full working capacity as quickly as possible,” he said. PLEASE DON’T BLAME STAFF FOR HOSPITAL’S CHRONIC SITUATION – BROGAN was last modified: January 15th, 2014 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:Cllr Ciaran BroganLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more
