Harmon denies bribing Duncan to resign

first_img…tribunal to hear 1st witness todayMinister of State, Joseph Harmon has rejected claims made by trade unionist Carvil Duncan that Government offered money in exchange for his resignation as Chairperson of the Public Service Commission (PSC) in light of his court charges.According to a public statement released on Sunday, “The Office of the Minister of State categorically denies the assertion made by Mr Carvil Duncan that he was offered monies by the Minister of State or the President.”The statement conceded that meetings were indeed held where Duncan was “gracefully” asked to vacate the positions he currently holds on several constitutional service commissions given his current trial for allegedly stealing $984,900 and conspiring to steal $27,757,500 from the Guyana Power and Light (GPL).Harmon’s office said Duncan indicated that he would discuss the matter with his family and return with a decision; however, he never did, which prompted President David Granger to establish a tribunal to determine his fate.However, Duncan, in a missive on Saturday evening, indicated that he made attempts to make contact with the Minister following the meeting, but all attempts proved futile.He also alleged that both Harmon and the President offered him money to step down from his post on the Public Service Commission, which would automatically result in his removal from the Judicial Service Commission and the Police Service Commission.“President Granger insisted I resign as Chairman of the Public Service Commission to be followed by the other constitutional service commissions. He then said to me as much as three times, that ‘he does not want any blood on his carpet’… The President offered me a financial package under the same conditions as had been offered by Minister Harmon if I were to resign as he insisted,” Duncan claimed in his statement.The embattled official also insisted that he never received a letter from Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo asking him to justify why a tribunal should not be established to address his removal from his posts.Reports indicate that Nagamootoo wrote Duncan asking him to show cause why a tribunal should not be established to address the question of his removal from constitutional office.Given his non-response, the President took a decision to establish the tribunal to investigate and recommend whether Duncan should be removed from his offices for his inability to discharge his function and/or misbehaviour.The tribunal members comprise Chairperson Justice Roxanne George, Justice Winston Patterson and Attorney-at-Law Robert Ramcharran.Duncan was charged and placed before the courts over the alleged theft of monies.He was placed on $1 million bail in February last after he had appeared in the Magistrates Court charged with larceny to which he pleaded not guilty.Police alleged that on March 31, 2015 at Georgetown, he stole $984,900, property of GPL.It is also alleged that he conspired with GPL’s then Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Aeshwar Deonarine to steal the money and to commit a felony, namely, he conspired to steal $27,757,500, property of the utility company.The tribunal will hear its first witness today.last_img read more

Exclusive – Eddie Howe plays down promotion talk ahead of Bournemouth’s crunch clash with Derby

first_imgEddie Howe insists Bournemouth are not getting carried away with talk of promotion to the Premier League.The Cherries, riding high at the top of the Championship, were labelled “the best team in the division” by Malky Mackay after they eased past his Wigan side at the weekend to keep their grip on top spot.But, with Tuesday night’s visitors Derby County breathing down their neck and just seven points separating the top six teams, Howe is remaining calm, as he knows their fortunes can quickly change.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, he said: “I consider there to be five or six teams in the hunt [for automatic promotion].“We haven’t really talked about promotion here. For us, it is just about maintaining our performance levels and keep ticking the games off.“The league is a really good one. There are a lot of good sides up there and I have always had the feeling it will go right down to the wire.”Bournemouth go into the clash with Derby on Tuesday level on points with Steve McClaren’s side, with only goal difference separating the two teams.But Howe is playing down the significance of the meeting at the Goldsands Stadium.“This is a big game, but it is not final for either team,” he insisted.“They are a good side, I have watched a lot of them, and they are rightly regarded as favourites to get promotion.“Steve has done an excellent job, they have got some very good players, and it is a game that we are really looking forward to.”last_img read more

The Dungloe and Glenswilly reserves had played out a 2:6 to 2:6 score line prior to throw-in. Conor Greene scored Dungloe’s opening goal, this was followed by a David McCarron goal; when a long ball inside by McCarron was misjudged by the Glenswilly keeper and the ball ended up in the back of the Glenswilly net.Dungloe have a very young side but they played some excellent football from start to finish but were undone by a combination of poor defending and several bad wides of their own. Dungloe were guilty of wasting some good opportunities to press on when they led Glenswilly by three points in the second-half. Glenswilly used their experience to get over the line but this performance can give Dungloe plenty of hope for the year ahead.Final Score: Glenswilly 1-15 Dungloe 2-07The club have a small number of Club Donegal cards for sale.

first_img Ozil turned in a brilliant display Emery played down Arsenal’s title credentials getty The German cancelled out Hector Bellerin’s own goal before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came off the bench to score twice, rounding off a sublime team goal for his second.Many are beginning to suggest Arsenal, who have not won the Premier League since 2004, can mount a serious title bid this campaign.They are currently just two points off league-leaders Manchester City after nine games, however Emery insists supporters must not get carried away.“We need to continue being calm. “We must continue working, improving, on tactical things to help us find the best performance. It was a big atmosphere today and everyone felt together. It’s important we can speak in the dressing room. We want to enjoy it, but we are working.“If you want to win you need to work, and you need to be together. With our quality we can enjoy it, we need to enjoy the work.

DONEGAL’S SIX STAR HOTEL PLAN PUT ON ICE AS COMPANY BATTLES TO SURVIVE

first_imgA property developer’s wife, who had plans to turn a 34 acre site into Donegal’s first six star hotel and marina, is trying to avoid being made bankrupt.Emma McElroy is arguing that she she signed loan guarantees without reading them and without getting independent legal advice.Mervyn and Emma McElroy were the directors of Lough Shore Development in County Fermanagh. Amongst its plans was to establish a luxury hotel and marina on the shores of Ball Hill outside Donegal Town.It went into administration in August 2010 owing its bank over £7m and Mr Elroy was bankrupted earlier this year.Allied Irish Banks is now seeking to have Mrs McElroy declared bankrupt.The details are contained in a recently published High Court ruling in which Mrs McElroy was successful in winning the right to introduce fresh evidence in an appeal to the bankruptcy court. The usual legal principle is that people should produce all available evidence to the bankruptcy court at the initial stage.The bankruptcy petition jointly named Mr and Mrs Elroy and they were jointly represented.However, Mr Justice Deeny accepted that it is not clear whether Mrs Elroy ever consulted the barrister.He gave her the right to introduce new affidavits which make the case that she was “a housewife of a farmer who then turned to property development” and that she “signed documents without reading them or without independent advice”.She further argues that she was not separately represented throughout the bankruptcy proceedings.
