Gov’t Displays Delay Posture in South Korean US$247,500 Theft Case

first_imgDrama unfolded on Wednesday, August 27, at Criminal Court ‘C’ when government lawyers could not continue with a US$247,500 theft case levied against them by some South Korean’s businessmen, claiming “technical problems.”Initially, the party’s lawyers  were informed through a  notice of assignment to appear before the court  yesterday to proceed with  “a Motion for Return of Property  and Illegally Seized” filed by lawyers representing the interest of  the Korean businessmen against  officers of the National Security Agency (NSA).It all started when Judge Yussif Kaba called for the start of the case.  The only government lawyer that was seated in the courtroom stood and informed the court that he had a submission to spread on it (court) records.When he was given the chance to speak yesterday, the lawyer said, “We pray, Your Honor,  for continuance of the matter because of some technical problems beyond our control  have prevented us from filing our resistance to the motion.”He added, “Therefore, we plead with you to postpone the matter to August 28 to afford us the opportunity to adequately prepare ourselves to address the issue.”Following the lawyer’s  submission, Judge Yussif Kaba granted the government postponement of the matter by saying “The essence of a trial being to ensure that justice is done and in order to affect the justice, all of the parties are given the opportunity to adequately represent their clients’ interest in the matter.”He went on to announce, “This Court hereby reluctantly grants the prayer contained in the application of the respondent (government). This matter is therefore hereby reassigned to August 28 at 10:30 a.m.  The matter is hereby suspended.”In their motion filed on behalf of the South Korea businessmen, Park Jung Dai, the attorney –in-fact claimed that on July 8, 2014 at about 1:30 p.m. a group of officers of the National Security Agency (NSA) entered their premises of City Guest House on the Old Road in Sinkor and illegally seized their business money in the amount of US$247,500 without due process of law.In the document, they alleged that the NSA officers without any warrant of search and seizure as required by law and in total violation of the rights under the Constitution.   They further argued that the said money was illegally seized from them that had been transferred from their home in South Korea to the International Bank in Monrovia and on July 8, 2014.According to them, they withdrew said amount from the bank to transact business in the country.Immediately upon receipt of the amount from the bank,  they preceded to their Old Road Guest House where the security followed them and took possession of the money and other valuable properties.They named some of the properties seized by the NSA as gas torch, melting dish, two packs of chemicals for testing, gold, an electric gold scale, two pocket wallets containing credit cards and important call cards. The case is due to continue today, August 28.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Stepping in to Help

first_imgThirteen-year-old little Bendu Dunbar is one of several Ebola orphans around the country, who can look back and say that the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD) has indeed left an everlasting scar on them.The disease attacked Liberia in March 2014 and exposed its already weak or non-existent health care delivery system. Before the outbreak, there were reports in 2013 of one doctor to at least 14,000 Liberians. Out of the 250 registered and licensed doctors for the population of 3.5 million, 175 were Liberians and less than 25 percent of those doctors were specialized.   The EVD killed nearly 10 foreign and Liberian medical doctors, including Dr. Samuel Brisbane, who had more than two decades of practice under his belt.As people contracted the disease, they began dying in their number. At least 8157 as at January 7, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), have so far contracted the virus in Liberia and 3496 persons have died.Included in this number, are the relatives of 13-year-old Bendu Dunbar and many other Ebola orphans around the country. Ms. Dunbar tearfully, told the Daily Observer Wednesday, January 7, how she lost 13 members of her family, including both of her parents.“My people were just dying one after another,” she narrated sadly, fighting to hold back her tears.She and her relatives used to live in Dolo Town, one of the hardest hit communities in Margibi County.Most of whom she lost to the virus were adults. The 13-year-old, a third grader, is one of the six children left behind to fend for themselves if no one or the government steps in to rescue them.Like Bendu, her siblings and 54 other Ebola orphans with similar stories, they have now been sheltered at the Taffi Dollar Children’s Welfare Center (TDCWC), along the main highway leading up to the Roberts International Airport (RIA), in Margibi. The center is about a mile from the new national cemetery.The head of the welfare center, Pastor Wilmot B. Yalartai told the Daily Observer how his church had to step in to help cater for the children of those dying from Ebola.Pastor Yalartai narrated that the wife of a fellow pastor, late Rev. Augustine Zarr, just a stone’s throw from his compound, had contracted the virus and died, leaving the Pastor and kids to struggle, too.“When I saw this, I said to my church members, we need to do something. I made some research about the virus and we began administering anti-bodies to the Pastor and his kids. We even donated some food so that they could eat at least three times every day,” he narrated. He, however, stated that that pastor died but his kids got well.According to him, that was the turning point for him and his church—Abundant Life Chapel, which runs the welfare center in partnership with the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection.“We started going to Dolo Town and other places to administer to orphans and their remaining relatives about the love of Christ, telling them that no hope is lost in Him. We also donated food items to them,” Pastor Yalartai, whose facilities have both boys and girls dorms, a high school and others, told this newspaper.He said after hosting a church service with orphans and surviving relatives mid 2014, some of the surviving relatives, who attended, “begged” for him to take their kids in after seen his facilities and amenities.“That is how I began taking in the kids. I have space for at least 100 but have so far only been able to take in 60 because of resources problem,” he added.As he listed the center’s immediate needs, he said budget for sponsorship per month for each of the kids is US$60.“I also need 30 pieces of laptops for the computer lab and a 15-KVA generator,” he further said.The center’s school is free for boarding students or orphans and can accommodate at least 300 children from the neighboring communities. It presently has 14 staff, including a nurse, teachers, matron, dean, security and cooks.He disclosed to this newspaper that since he took in the kids two months ago, it was only last Saturday, January 3, that the government, through the Incident Management System (IMS), gave the center some food, which can carry the center for at least two weeks.He appealed to international donors, including WFP, UNICEF, Plan International, Save the Children and the Government of Liberia to come and help sponsor the kids.He also appealed to all international churches, especially the Creflo Dollar Ministries, based in Atlanta, Georgia, which help them construct the facilities to cater for kids.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bomi College Faculty Wants Pres. Weah Withdraw Dr. Gray’s Appointment

first_imgBCCC’s faculty wants President Weah retain Dr. Norman. -Says appointment violates BCCC’s ActThe faculty and staff of the Bomi County Community College (BCCC) have called on President George Weah to withdraw the recent appointment of Dr. Mulbah Gray as president of the college, replacing Dr. Zobong B. Norman, the sitting president.They claimed that the appointment of Dr. Gray violates the Act establishing the college.In a statement issued yesterday, September 9, in Monrovia, the faculty expressed the belief that the removal of Dr. Norman as president of the college was not in line with the BCCC’s Act as enshrined in Article 5, section 1.“In the interim, we want the Board of Trustees reconstituted since its service time has elapsed, as evidenced by the reappointment of the chair, which is also inconsistent with Article 3, Section 4, of the Act,” the faculty’s statement said.The faculty also called for a new Board to be reconstituted and be charged with the responsibility of competitively vetting the new president in harmony with the Act establishing the college.“Given the continued internal disagreement and misunderstanding between the Board chair, Arthur Varney Yengbeh, and Dr. Norman for the past two years, we recommend that Mr. Yengbeh be replaced and the Board be dissolved to restore sanity at the college,” the statement said.According to them, Mr. Yengbeh did not only consistently undermine Dr. Norman but also did similar things to the entire BCCC’s administration.The faculty said Mr. Yengbeh, over the last two years, has “hurt” members of the administration and other staff. To restore sustainable peace and tranquility, the faculty said President Weah should replace Mr. Yengbeh.They further appealed to President Weah to reconsider the decision in removing Dr. Norman in compliance with the Act, so as to create a conducive and peaceful learning environment at the institution as well as allow a speedy and timely resumption of classes.“We are cognizant of the hindrances posed by the recent removal of Dr. Norman and, therefore, we deem it necessary to call on President Weah to restore sanity by withdrawing the nomination of Dr. Gray,” members of the faculty have said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man United edge Real Madrid on penalties

first_imgThe 21-year-old shone during his impressive debut campaign at Old Trafford under Louis van Gaal two years ago, yet struggled under Mourinho last season — prompting speculation that he could be on the move this summer.But after Martial looked back to his best, Mourinho admitted that talent is not the issue for the United forward.“Obviously, we want more consistency in his talent,” said Mourinho. “I think today was positive for him. That’s why I left him for 90 minutes on the pitch. He was enjoying it, trying things and it’s important in these friendly matches to try things, which he did.“That’s only good for his confidence.”Jesse Lingard of Manchester United scores past Marcelo Da Silva Junior of Real Madrid during their International Champions Cup match, at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on July 23, 2017 © GETTY/AFP / EZRA SHAWOn the stroke of half-time, Martial’s quick feet saw him leave both Daniel Carvajal and Luka Modric for dead, before squaring the ball across the six-yard box for Lingard to tap home.It was just reward for Lingard after he was the best player on the pitch during the first half, only a smart save from Keylor Navas keeping out a swerving shot from 25 yards in the seventh minute.In their first pre-season outing, Real were understandably rusty during the first half, but they improved significantly after Zinedine Zidane changed his entire 11 at the interval and introduced a host of youngsters.They drew level when Victor Lindelof brought down summer signing Theo Hernandez in the area and Casemiro smashed home the resulting spot-kick.Zidane said he was “satisfied” with the performance, particularly the contribution of the club’s hot prospects.Real Madrid’s Carolos Henrique Casemiro reacts after missing a penalty kick shootout against Manchester United, during their International Champions Cup match in Santa Clara, California, on July 23, 2017 © AFP / Beck DiefenbachBut when asked about the depth of his squad and whether he was chasing a replacement for the departed Alvaro Morata, Zidane was cautious at being drawn over any transfer business.“I’ve talked to the president, but we have a roster of 28 players and I’m happy,” said the Real boss.“Ultimately, we will see. We have until August 31, but I have not asked for any (players).”United won 2-1 in a desperately low quality penalty shootout at the conclusion of the encounter, but it was an injury to midfielder Ander Herrera which was preying on Mourinho’s mind afterwards.The half-time substitute lasted just seven minutes before he was forced off with a rib injury.“For him to come off, it has to be very painful,” Mourinho said. “I want to wait and see what it is but I always say there’s no risk in friendly matches. If you feel that something is coming, a little injury, then get off. The result is not important.”Herrera is expected to join Juan Mata on the treatment table when United round off their Stateside pre-season tour against Barcelona, in Landover, Maryland on Wednesday.– ‘Happy with our pre-season’ –But despite a hectic period of five games in the space of 12 days, Mourinho feels the trip has been beneficial.“We managed to organize the pre-season in a way where we were based in LA for 15 days,” he added. “It’s fantastic to always be in the same hotel, same training ground. The flights were quite short to go to Salt Lake, Houston.“Now we go to (Washington) and that’s halfway home, almost.“In terms of jet lag, it’s halfway home. These next three days in DC are not a problem. After that, we have two more matches to play in Norway and Ireland. Traveling in the same day, short flights. I’m really happy with our pre-season.“If Mata and Ander are not a problem in terms of injuries, then it’s a perfect pre-season for us.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United forward Anthony Martial (R) celebrates with midfielder Jesse Lingard after Lingard scored a goal on July 23, 2017 in Santa Clara, California © AFP / Beck DiefenbachSANTA CLARA, United States, Jul 24 – Jose Mourinho has challenged Anthony Martial to produce the goods on a more consistent basis after the Manchester United frontman caught the eye against Real Madrid.Martial produced a scintillating weaving run to set up Jesse Lingard’s opening goal in United’s 1-1 draw against Real in the International Champions Cup at Santa Clara, California, on Sunday, albeit the French international blazed over from the spot in the penalty shootout that followed the draw.last_img read more

Aguero suffers broken ribs in car crash

first_imgThe prolific 29-year-old was due to return to Manchester on Friday morning to be assessed ahead of City’s Premier League clash at Chelsea on Saturday.Amsterdam police spokesman Frans Zuiderhoek told AFP that officers attended an accident in the city at around 11:00pm (2100 GMT) on Thursday after “a taxi-cab hit a lamp-post”.He could not confirm the identities of the two passengers and the driver, who all asked to remain anonymous.“No other vehicles were involved,” he told AFP early on Friday, adding that three people in the taxi “have been transferred to hospital for observation… but there were no bad injuries”.The accident occurred on De Boelelaan street, said Zuiderhoek, not far from the Arena A where Colombian singer Maluma performed on Thursday.The Argentina striker, who has scored 176 goals for the English club, on Thursday posted a picture of himself with the singer on his official Instagram page.British media reported that Aguero, who has already scored six times in the Premier League this season, had sustained broken ribs and was set to be out for around two months.Aguero’s former club Independiente posted a message of support on Twitter, saying: “Strength and speedy recovery @aguerosergiokun! All @Independiente is with you at this difficult time.”The striker needs only more two goals to become City’s all-time leading scorer and is widely viewed as one of the world’s most feared strikers.– Hero for fans –Sergio Aguero says he feels very happy at Manchester City. PHOTO/FFT.Yet just seven months ago, Aguero’s Eastlands future appeared bleak after he lost the trust of City manager Pep Guardiola.Having earned his way back into Guardiola’s good graces by refusing to complain publicly about his treatment last term, Aguero has made himself indispensible with a barrage of goals.Aguero is a hero amongst the City fans after scoring the winning injury-time goal that snatched the 2011/12 Premier League title away from arch-rivals Manchester United, one of the most dramatic goals in the league’s history.Signed from Atletico Madrid for £38 million ($51 million, 42 million euros) by then-City boss Roberto Mancini in 2011, Aguero wasted little time announcing his arrival on the Premier League stage.He marked his City debut with two goals in a 30-minute substitute appearance against Swansea.By the time City reached the final game of the season, Aguero had scored 23 times in the league to fire the club towards its first title in 44 years.His goals were a key element in City’s second Premier League triumph two years later.He has also won the League Cup twice and finished as the Premier League’s top scorer in the 2014/15 season.City received another injury blow on Thursday when £50 million French defender Benjamin Mendy was diagnosed with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sergio Aguero has reportedly been injured in a car crash in Amsterdam.Photo/D/MLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 29 – Manchester City’s Argentine striker Sergio Aguero “sustained injuries” in a car crash in the Netherlands and is returning to Britain to be checked ahead of the weekend’s Premier League fixtures, his club said on Friday.“Sergio Aguero will be assessed by club doctors today after being involved in a road accident on Thursday.
