Football House Worried over Allotment in Nat’l Budget

first_imgTwo days after the submission of the 2014/2015 National Budget to the Legislature by the Ministry of Finance & Development Planning, the Liberia Football Association has expressed concern about its recommended allotment of US$500K to promote and develop football in the country including the erection of stadiums and sponsoring of grassroots programs.The acting president of LFA, Musa Shannon said the football house will need US$5m to be able to provide long-term value participation for young people and build sports stadiums.Shannon said the sports stadiums would not only have the potential to increase participation but also reduce anti-social behavior.He made the remarks in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer yesterday in Monrovia.He further stated that the allotment of US$5m would also be able to develop grassroots football across the country.Shannon urged the Legislature to substantially boost football allotment if the Ministry of Youth and Sports through the Executive Branch forgot to consider LFA’s recommendation.“It will be a positive move if the Ministry of Youth and Sports give us what we proposed, but if for any reason the Ministry fails, we want to urge the Legislature to invest in Liberian football for the sake of the youthful population,” Shannon said.He added: “For Liberia to be on par with other countries in football we must support football like those countries are doing.”It may be recalled that on April 14 2014, the LFA submitted a football program to the Liberian government in the amount of US$5m.Bility said the program highlighted the erection of sports infrastructure and youthful football programs amongst others.A month later, in a press conference, Bility reiterated the need for the allocation of US$5m in the 2014/2015 national budget, arguing that the LFA needs a fair share of the country’s resources to develop the game in the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Time to Harmonize Telecom Regulations in West Africa’

first_imgTelecommunication Operators and Regulation Officials from Africa“We did not only limit the workshop to WATRA’s delegates as an advantage to us (Liberians), to have it hosted here because we invited individuals and a cross section of entities, including governments and other business entities.“Compliance absolutely is important; business people should not want for us to go after them but should make it their duty to meet all the requirements,” she added.WATRA President, Pierre Dandjinou, who spoke via skype to the participants, wants to ensure that the internet continues to grow and evolve as a platform for innovation, economic development, and social progress for people around the world.“We are the world’s trusted independent source of leadership for internet policy, technology standards, and future development, so I hope that this conference will help regulators understand the sector,” he said.WATRA was born out of the need to address present day realities in the telecommunications industry in the sub-region, while focusing on the need for West Africa to evolve a harmonized regulatory identity to boost investment and investor confidence and to effectively regulate and monitor telecommunication services.The conference is being attended by executives of telecommunication operators and regulation officials from other African countries, including Cellcom/Orange and Lonestar Cell MTN and other international telecommunication bodies.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) LTA chairperson Weeks: “Our intent is to harmonize regulations across the region, so that as many developed countries you can move from one country to another in a similar fashion”A series of two back-to-back meetings of telecommunications governance bodies, Internet Cooperation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and the West Africa Telecommunications Regulators Assembly’s (WATRA) 14th annual general meeting of the conference of regulators opened yesterday in Monrovia with a call to harmonize telecommunications polices within the West African region.Madam Angelique Weeks, Chairperson of the Liberia Telecommunications Authority (LTA), stressed that the pace of development in the industry would continue to accelerate and regulatory institutions in developing countries, especially in Africa, need to develop strategies to keep abreast with the trend.“Our intent is to harmonize regulations across the region, so that you can move from one country to another in a similar fashion.“So, think about it, we all have ECOWAS passport and so even though we still have to go through immigration, we have a document to show a common relationship among ourselves; likewise the telecommunications sector and that is what we are aiming for in the region,” she said.She said such developments would create the enabling environment favorable to broadband deployment of wireless technologies for last mile connectivity to the internet.“We urgently need to reach a clear understanding of wireless internet’s development potential, identify the obstacles and develop a realistic plan of action that would bring together all governments, stakeholders and the private sector and civil society in a coherent and sustainable endeavor,” the LTA chairperson said.According to her, the conference is also intended to remove some of the barriers in the region, like free movement and affordable communications, which are in line with the LTA’s vision.“So, within the next four days, we will be doing capacity building in the ICANN workshop that will teach the participants about the ICANN Ecosystem and many other issues that are relevant to it and very particular for Liberia.last_img read more

8 prisoners now on the run – Police

first_imgJailbreak… transferred inmates slaughter, roast cow to eat at LusignanThree days after pandemonium broke out at the Camp Street Prison, whichPolice Commissioner Seelall Persaudresulted in the death of one prison officer, injuries to several inmates and a completely gutted penitentiary, the Police have now been able to confirm that the number of prisoners on the run has increased.Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud told Guyana Times on Tuesday that the number of prisoners that are now on the run is eight, as opposed to five, which was reported previously. While the Police Commissioner could not provide the names of the other escaped prisoners, with the exception of those for which wanted bulletins were issued, he said that the information is now being compiled.Police have issued wanted bulletins for Mark Royden Durant, Uree Varswyck, Stafrei Hopkinson Alexander. Durant, also known as “Royden Williams” and “Smallie”, was charged along with several others for the 2008 mass killing at Bartica. The other escapees were also imprisoned for murder.Asked to provide a more accurate figure on the number of prisoners that were at the Camp Street Prison at the time of the unrest, Persaud said, “I can’t say. There were inaccuracies in figures but there were inaccuracies about who were the onesPublic Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattanactually missing but that has been rectified,” he said.When pressed further to state what was the exact number of prisoners that were at the Camp Street Prison at the time of the incident, Seelall said, “I am interested in the ones that have escaped… we are trying to assist the prison in restoring order and pursue those who have escaped and get them rearrested.”At a press conference early Monday morning, the authorities had claimed that there were some 1018 prisoners at the facility. That figure was later changed to 1090 and there have also been reports that it may have been 1110. However, it was later stated that some 1144 prisoners were on the actual register.Meanwhile, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan confirmed with Guyana Times that the video circulating on social media where the transferred prisoners from Camp Street were seen engaged in slaughtering a cow at Lusignan holding area was factual. He said, “We understand there was a stray animal in there,” but when asked how they managed to get devices to undertake such an activity, he could not provide an explanation.However, he stressed that the facility has maximum security, “it’s very tight, and soPrisoners slaughtering a cow at the Lusignan Prison on Tuesdayif anybody try anything stupid, you have the Army, the Tactical Services Unit, and prison wardens there. It’s about the safest, you could get anywhere in Guyana now. If you have any other ideas you can come up with it, but I’m telling you it’s the safest place.”Asked if investigations into what led to the Camp Street fire has commenced, the Minister said, “There are preliminary investigations at this point.”last_img read more

International financial groups distance selves from Rusal

first_img…over 500 Guyanese workers in limboAlthough the Russian Government has announced plans to provide Rusal with short-term liquidity and other assistance owing to the US sanctions it is now faced with, several international financial groups have distanced themselves from the shares, bonds and metal of the aluminium giant.Reuters has reported that shares of the company will be deleted from global equity and debt indexes while its metal will not be allowed on the London Metal Exchange (LME) and the CME Group. The company will also be deleted from FTSE Russell’s equity indexes effective from the open on April 13.Rusal will also be excluded on April 30 from JPMorgan’s CEMBI index group ofForeign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidgeemerging market corporate bonds. Also, Bloomberg users in Europe have stopped displaying share prices of Rusal, EN+ Group and Swiss pumpmaker Sulzer, all of which are subject to the sanctions, Reuters also reported.Rusal’s shares on the Hong Kong index have slumped by half since the sanctions were imposed on Friday and they gave up another 1.9 per cent on Wednesday.Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev claimed that the new sanctions were an attempt to capture global markets for US companies.On the local front, however, Government said it was monitoring developments relating to the sanctions. Rusal is one of the largest aluminium producers in the world and has operations in Guyana in the form of the Bauxite Company of Guyana Incorporated (BCGI), employing over 500 persons, whose jobs could be in limbo as a result of the crash the company is facing on the international market.Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge said on Wednesday that it would not be easy to give an immediate analysis of the situation, but the developments were being monitored. He said the Administration was concerned as to any adverse consequences the situation may have on employment of locals.“But at this point in time, I don’t think that either we or the company would be in a position to say ‘this is what will happen tomorrow’ as a consequence. It (the situation) will evolve,” the Minister stated.ShockedGuyana Times spoke with a few of Rusal’s employees, who chose to remain anonymous, to see how they were affected by the issue of the sanctions.An employee said ships could not enter at the moment, but operations were normal apart from the loading of the barges.The employee said workers were shocked to learn of the issue as they thought the company would be shut down. However, it was explained that employees were told by management at a meeting on Wednesday that the company should not be affected by the sanctions, but was awaiting word from the parent company which should be forthcoming by April 15.“They say is just some things got to put in place and back, we back in operation (loading of barges). Everybody just working as per normal. Ships can’t come in, so it ain’t make no sense loading the barges here…if they load the stuff and leave it there with stuff inside, the company that Rusal hire would have to pay more money. When the barge is empty, they pay less money. So they just cease the operations from loading barges. By the 15th, we’re supposed to get a word to start back the operation,” employees said.They added that in the meantime, mining was still ongoing in Aroaima. “We still hoping that by the 15th we could start back in operation. If not, I think the whole country would suffer, because we have about 700 workers here and in the Berbice River, we don’t have anything else to do. Five hundred workers can’t do farming. It would be great pressure on us so we’re hoping, but in the meantime we could try to prepare.”The employee said this should serve as an eye opener for the company to ensure necessary plans were in place. Another employee attached to the company explained that while workers were currently working as per normal with the 12-hour shift, the company that usually shipped bauxite from Rusal to New Amsterdam took back the barges so that aspect of work was presently at a standstill.Workers further explained that suppliers were refusing to do business with the company at the moment owing to the sanctions. “Right now things ain’t looking too nice,” one employee said. The employee also complained about the working conditions at the company, noting that local employees were still being ill-treated, especially those attached to the Union. “If they can pay us off and go back to wherever they come from, it would be good for me,” the worker said.The US Treasury on April 6 announced sanctions against seven Russian oligarchs and 12 companies they own or control, saying they were profiting from a Russian State engaged in “malign activities” around the world. These included Oleg Deripaska, Rusal, and his newly-created holding company EN+ Group.last_img read more

SKY-GAZERS LEFT IN DARK AFTER NORTHERN LIGHTS NO-SHOW

first_imgThe Northern Lights captured by Rory Adam Porter.Sky-gazers were left disappointed after traveling from across Ireland to see the spectacular Northern Lights above Donegal at the weekend.An alert was put out that the aurora borealis or Northern Lights would be visible in the skies over Donegal and the North-West.The amazing dancing lights, normally only seen around the Arctic Circle, were expected to move further south between Thursday and Saturday. NASA and Astronomy Ireland were among groups and organisations who alerted the pubic to the natural phenomenon.Hundreds of people travelled from across Ireland including Dublin and Roscommon to catch a glimpse of the lights.But they were left hugely disappointed when the lights failed to materialise.The lights went dim when ejections from the sun slowed down and the earth’s magnetic field pulled all the light Northwards back towards the Arctic Circle. One disappointed light-hunter travelling around Malin Head in Co Donegal tweeted “The only lights I can see are the headlights of other cars looking for the Northern Lights.”Veteran Northern Lights gazer and photographer Adam Rory Porter said he met lots of people in Donegal who were extremely disappointed.“It is not an exact science and even people in NASA were quite confident of a good lights display in more southern skies.“I met a lot of people who had traveled from down south hoping to sees the lights but it was just not meant to be.“I felt so guilty because I had been reading these forecasts from NASA and it looked like there was a good chance of seeing the lights but the ejections from the sun just slowed down. “The reality is that if you want to be almost guaranteed to see the Northern Lights then you have to travel to Iceland or Norway and that’s quite expensive.“It took me five or six warnings to see the lights myself but it was certainly worth waiting for,” he said.The aurora borealis occurs when highly charged electrons from the solar wind interact with elements in the Earth’s atmosphere leaving amazing light shows of various colours.SKY-GAZERS LEFT IN DARK AFTER NORTHERN LIGHTS NO-SHOW was last modified: January 13th, 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:adam rory porterdonegalNASAnorthern lightslast_img read more

DONEGAL STUDENT STUDIES HIMSELF FOR IRISH EXAM!

first_imgCathal with the band Crann Og.A Leaving Cert student got a pleasant surprise during his Irish Exam, Paper I, when he realised he had somewhat of a starring role in one of the questions.Cathal Ó Curráin from Gaoth Dobhair was sitting his aural exam when he realised one of the questions was about the band he plays in.Cathal said everyone was in fits of laughter in the exam hall when they realised the coincidence. “I thought it was very funny. I was sitting in the corner, and when we got the paper everyone turned around saying ‘that’s ye’ and I was in fits laughing. I knew the answers before we heard the recording,” he told RTE’s Radio na Gaeltachta.The questions in the aural comprehension were about Cathal’s music group An Crann Óg from Gaoth Dobhair, of which Cathal is a member.Another member of the group, Eimhear Nic Comhail, is also sitting her Leaving Cert this year.“Everyone in the room was laughing, they were slagging me saying ‘fix fix’. It’s great though, 120,000 people did the exam and it’s a great thing for An Crann Óg that we were mentioned in the exam.” Cathal Ó Curráin, better known as Cathal Banjo, has completed 4 of his exams, with three more next week, and is hoping to study Irish and music in University of Limerick next year.An Crann Óg is a group of young traditional musicians established by Caitlín and PJ Joe Jack in Gaoth Dobhair in 2007 to encourage and promote traditional music among the younger generation.DONEGAL STUDENT STUDIES HIMSELF FOR IRISH EXAM! was last modified: June 15th, 2016 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)last_img read more

Two men charged with attempted fraud at Letterkenny Hotel

first_imgTwo men, one of whom became embroiled in an identity enquiry, appeared before Letterkenny District Court charged with credit card fraud.Kwabna Kei and Drissa Dembele were charged with the offences at Dillon’s Hotel on November 23 last. The accused were charged with theft and fraudulent offences.Questions arose over the identity of Kei, of 16 Tudor Lawns, Foxrock, County Dublin, who was subsequently given a two-month suspended prison sentence.A bank card tendered to make a reservation at Dillon’s Hotel was traced to an account in Germany.Kei could not provide documentation to Gardai.“He was very evasive,” Garda Stephen Moyles told the Court.Kei, the court heard, entered the state lawfully in 2006, but had given his date of birth then as 25/8/1987. He said he had been ‘obeying a man’ in order to see his family when he first came to Ireland. His mother has since passed away and his father lives in Ghana.Gardai verified that Kei’s passport, stating his date of birth as 31/12/1989, was a genuine passport, but questioned if the passport was Kei’s.“I have cut my hair, since my uncle did not like it,” Kei told the court.Kei lives with a man in Foxrock, who is a friend of his girlfriend.Judge Alan Mitchell said there was an identity issued that had to be clarified and refused bail.Kei, originally from Ghana, opted to tender a guilty plea to the charges and the case was heard.Gardai were alerted by staff about a reservation that was made on November 22. Staff became suspicious after noticing that the reservation was made over the phone and the name wasn’t compatible with any people who were in the room.Gardai found three occupants in the room.“Our suspicions rose when we located two cards and they weren’t issued to anyone in the room,” Garda Moyles said.Gardai subsequently found a handwritten note in a wallet, belied to have contained credit card numbers, security codes and expiry dates. In a rucksack, officers found a refill pad containing similar information.Gardai detected a strong smell of cannabis in the room. Kei admitted that the €20 of cannabis herb found was for his own use.A loss of €109, the price of a room and ‘half a breakfast’ had been incurred.“They were dining when we arrived,” Garda Moyles said.€750 and £445stg in cash was seized.A female, from the Derry area, was also present and interviewed, but was not charged.“She didn’t know what was going on,” Garda Moyles said.Solicitor for the accused, Patsy Gallagher, said Kei was a 27-year-old man who was in a relationship and expecting their first child.“He came to Letterkenny with another individual and stayed for two extra days,” Mr Gallagher said.“He has no previous convictions and the matter has been dealt with in a very quick space of time.”“Credit card fraud is a disaster area as regards the amount of fraud being perpetrated,” Judge Alan Mitchell said.“It may be that financial institutions take a hit, but it falls back on the customer. I have to send out a strong message here.””Judge Mitchell handed Kei a two-months prison term, but suspended the sentence for 12 months.Kei’s co-accused, Dembele, of 20 Monksfield Lawns in Clondalkin, Dublin, who has one previous conviction, was instructed to sign on at a Garda station in Dublin three times per week and is to be contactable 24 hours a day.Dembele was, an Irish citizen, is not currently in receipt of social welfare. He had been working, but has since left to return to education.Judge Mitchell granted bail on Dembele’s own bond of €300 to appear before the December 21 sitting of the court.Two men charged with attempted fraud at Letterkenny Hotel was last modified: November 28th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare 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:Dillons HotelDrissa DembeleJudge Alan MitchellKwabna KeiletterkennyLetterkenny District Courtlast_img read more
