Miner claims Mahdia Magistrate’s Court being built on his leased lands

first_imgAn East Coast Demerara (ECD) miner, who claims that the Mahdia Magistrate’s Court is being constructed on lands which he holds the mining claims to, has threatened to take legal actions if works are not ceased immediately.Royston Stuart of 70 Ann’s Grove Housing Scheme, ECD, is the holder of Claim Licence, dated September 2, 2016, issued under the authority of the Mining Act 1989 and the Mining Regulations by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) in respect to a certain tract of State land in Mining District Number 2.Despite that Claim Licence being valid and subsisting, Stuart alleged that without his permission, lease, let or license, a group of men, unknown to him, have entered upon a part of the land allotted to him in the Claim Licence and have begun the construction of a building that is intended to be used to house the Mahdia Magistrate’s Court.As such, the miner has sought the help of former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall to get the authorities to cease construction.“Unless the construction works… cease forthwith, and all structures constructed be demolished and removed from our client’s land within seven (7) days from the date hereof, we will have no alternative but to approach the High Court for a number of legal redress including injunctions and damages for trespass,” a letter from Nandlall to the Registrar of the Supreme Court, Sueann Lovell, states.The letter, dated March 22, 2019, was also copied to the acting Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards; acting Chief Justice Roxanne George; and Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman as well as Junior Natural Resources Minister, Simona Broomes.The lawyer pointed out in the letter, which was shared with the media, that his client had previously lodged a complaint with the GGMC since 2017 and as a result, a Mines Officer of the Commission has informed those conducting the construction that it was being done on Stuart’s Licenced Claim and that the works must cease. However, according to Attorney Nandlall, these instructions have been ignored.He added too that Stuart had also filed a complaint in writing on January 17, 2019, with both Natural Resources Ministers, Raphael Trotman and Simona Broomes. But again, it appears as though those complaints were made in vain because the unlawful construction continues unabated.“We sincerely hope that unnecessary litigation can be avoided and that good sense will prevail. I respectfully await your urgent response,” Nandlall stated in the letter.As of Tuesday’s date, when the correspondence was shared with the media, no contact was made with Stuart’s lawyer.The Mahdia Magistrate’s Court is being constructed in Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) to the cost of $140.385 million. The construction of the court comes under provisions made available to the Supreme Court to fund its 2019 work programmes.The Chancellor had said last year that the Mahdia court is among several District Court offices expected to open and will see regular sittings of the court and the availability of centralised services.last_img read more

Govt denies ulterior motives behind GFC task force

first_img…optimistic of recommendations for improving agencyThe Natural Resources Ministry has hit back against suggestions that the task force Government established to reform the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) has nefarious political motives.The Guyana Forestry Commission head office, Kingston, GeorgetownAccording to the Ministry in a statement, the task force’s mandate will be to reorganise and restructure the Commission, which has been plagued by criticisms over administrative concerns and complaints from staff.“The Ministry of Natural Resources has taken note of the letters and commentaries regarding the functioning of the task force and wishes to reiterate the Cabinet’s direction on this matter … The task force’s mandate shall include, but will not be limited to, an examination and evaluation of current job descriptions and performance standards, personnel procedures, conditions of employment and appointment, wages and salary structures and payroll administration,” the statement said.“It will further aim at improving the efficient performance and effective management of the Commission by identifying training and development opportunities for staff. The task force is expected to submit to the Minister of Natural Resources a work schedule with timelines and a preliminary report that would complete this assignment no later than July 2019. “According to the Ministry, the task force was established in keeping with the national objective of moving towards a ‘green’ economy and the consequent realignment of critical agencies of the State. As such, the proposal for the restructuring of the GFC was approved by Cabinet.“Consequently, a task force has been established jointly between the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) and the Board of Directors of the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) to address the reorganising and restructuring of the Forestry Commission. ““The task force will include the technical and administrative talent and personnel of the MNR, the Board, and the Commission, who will examine the structure and functioning of the GFC to make recommendations to the Minister of Natural Resources Hon Raphael GC Trotman, who, in turn, is mandated to present a report to Cabinet.”According to the statement, the Convener of the Task Force is the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) Project Coordinator Clayton Hall.“The Ministry expects that this addresses misguided remarks about the task force having an ulterior and devious political purpose, and clears up any uncertainties and awaits the preliminary report and work schedule,” it added.There have been letters written by staff of the GFC, who have expressed concern over the restructuring effort. In one such letter, the staff member wrote that when Hall was confronted with probing questions during an April 26 meeting with staff, the meeting ended abruptly.“Several GFC staff asked questions that were of high concern on the minds of staff: would the monitoring division and resources management divisions be merged as pre-empted by Hall’s early submission of his desired structure of the GFC? Would staff be dismissed and left hopeless and helpless?“What would happen to the families of these staff? Is it a witch-hunting exercise aimed at getting rid of specific persons? Is the committee experienced in human resources management to undertake a task such as this? And finally, how were the members of the task force chosen and is there a clear terms of reference for the committee’s work?”According to the staff, a showdown ensued during which Hall was asked by Commissioner James Singh to withdraw certain comments made in the meeting to staff, who were also on the verge of walking out.last_img read more

Man United team news: De Gea and Rooney OUT, Smalling doubtful

first_img Louis van Gaal’s men continue to struggle with injuries Manchester United will host FC Midtjylland with a depleted squad as they look to salvage their Europa League campaign. The Danish side will take a 2-1 lead back to Old Trafford after the shock victory last week and Louis Van Gaal’s men continue to be without a number of key men. The Red Devils go into the match after a comfortable victory over Shrewsbury in the FA Cup, but it is a match they approach without a string of first-team players.Questions remain over the fitness of Chris Smalling [after he collided with an advertising hoarding at Shrewsbury], while David de Gea will again be missing in between the sticks.The Spain goalkeeper is absent with a knee injury sustained in the warm-up ahead of the first leg in Denmark.Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Will Keane are other doubts after sustaining knocks on Monday, while Antonio Valencia (ankle) and Adnan Januzaj (cup-tied) trained with the squad on the eve of the game but will miss out.Donald Love comes back into contention and the returning Marcos Rojo could play 20 minutes, but Wayne Rooney (knee), Marouane Fellaini (muscle injury) and Matteo Darmian (shoulder) are out, as are Phil Jones, Luke Shaw, Ashley Young and Bastian Schweinsteiger.“I was hoping for (De Gea to be available) but he shall not be involved,” Van Gaal said.“That is already certain.“(Antonio) Valencia not available for selection, neither Januzaj.“(Marcelo) Rojo can only come in for 20 minutes, maybe, so it is possible but that depends on the other injuries. He has trained already with the second team.”Provisional squad: Romero, J Pereira, Love, Riley, Rojo, Varela, Blind, Smalling, Poole, Borthwick-Jackson, McNair, Schneiderlin, Herrera, Carrick, Lingard, Januzaj, Rashford, A Pereira, Mata, Depay, Martial, Keane. 1last_img read more

TRIAL UNABLE TO GO AHEAD BECAUSE OF LACK OF JURORS

first_imgLegal history was made in the county for the first time this week – for all the wrong reasons.Judge Donagh McDonaghIt is believed that for the first time a criminal trial could not go ahead in a Donegal court because not enough jurors were available to proceed. On Tuesday at Letterkenny Circuit Court, two trials were preparing to get underway before Judge Donagh McDonagh.A total of 28 people turned up to serve their civic duty on the jury panel.There are normally a lot more present when a jury panel in selected.Both the prosecution and defence teams are both entitled to make unspecified objections of jurors prior to the panel being sworn in.They successfully reached 12 jurors for the first trial but between the remaining members of the jury panel, coupled with six juror challenges, they had only reached six jurors after the procedure for the second case. The basic requirement for a trial to go ahead is ten.Judge McDonagh adjourned the matter to be tried under a new jury panel.It is understood that a technical hitch may have resulted in the inadequate number of qualifying jurors being summoned to the court.TRIAL UNABLE TO GO AHEAD BECAUSE OF LACK OF JURORS was last modified: July 25th, 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:Judge Donagh McDonaghjurorsLetterkenny Circuit Courttriallast_img read more

World Cup: Cranes start preps ahead of Egypt double header

first_imgWorld Cup QualifierThursday August 31Uganda vs EgyptMandela National Stadium NambooleLeft to right; Paul Mucureezi Milton Karisa, Simon Sserukuma, Erisa Ssekisambu,Nelson Senkatuka. Shaban Lubega.FOOTBALL–Uganda Cranes have started non-residential training in preparation for the World Cup qualifier against record African champions Egypt.Twenty-one players dominated by locally-based members of the CHAN squad turned up for training on the first day.The only other additions so far include Yasser Mugerwa, who plays in Ethiopia, Denis Iguma(free agent) and Hassan Wasswa (Lebanon), with the others expected in coming days.“I have been monitoring players outside the country and praying that we don’t get any sort of injury,” said Moses Basena after Monday’s session.“Its unfortunate that the pitch (Namboole) is having other functions so we cant train in it and that some of the players (professionals) are not turning up until the end of the week due to club engagements but we will be working with those available.”On the mood in the camp after Saturday’s loss to Rwanda, Basena said: “When you lose a game, you look back and reflect on what made you lose.”Basena and his assistant Fred Kajoba completed their first test when Fufa installed them as interim coaches in the wake of Milutin Micho Sredojevic’s walk-out on the national team last month by guiding Cranes to their fourth successive CHAN finals after withstanding Rwanda’s fightback in Kigali to prevail 3-2 on aggregate at the weekend.And now they turn focus to their second assignment, a bigger and more daunting task as five-time African champions Egypt looms.“Although Egypt is so different to Rwanda in terms of style of play and individuals, we will approach everything in the same way because African football is more like the same,” Basena said.The Uganda Cranes resume training at 9am on Tuesday.Players in attendance at training.Goalkeepers:Ismael Watenga and Said Keni.Defenders:Denis Iguma, Nico Wakiro Wadada, John Adriko, Isaac Muleme, Martin Kizza, Bernard Muwanga, Timothy Awany, Paul Musamali and, Hassan Wasswa.Midfielders:Muzamir Mutyaba, Shafic Kagimu, Moses Waiswa, Yasser Mugerwa, Deus Bukenya.Attackers.Paul Mucureezi, Milton Karisa, Simon Sserukuma, Erisa Ssekisambu,Nelson Senkatuka.Pic 1.

Liverpool, Chelsea out to maintain 100% start to Premier League campaign

first_imgFulham vs WatfordCraven Cottage, LondonSaturday, 22-09-2018 @02:30pm (Super Sport 3)Referee: Martin Atkinson    The 2017/18 Premier League surprise package-Watford will be hoping to return to winning ways when they face Fulham on Saturday. Javi Garcia’s men lost their first game of the current campaign last weekend, going down 2-1 at home to United. It was the first time they had failed to get all three points from a league game this season and will fancy themselves getting back to winning ways against a Fulham side that has lost three of its opening five fixtures including a 3-0 loss at defending champions Man City last time out.Garcia could become only the fifth manager to name the same starting line-up in their opening six matches of a Premier League season this weekend. Nathaniel Chalobah continued his recovery from a serious knee injury by playing in an Under-23 game on Monday but he is not expected to feature.For Fulham, captain Tom Cairney remains out with the ankle injury which caused him to miss the defeat by Manchester City. Defender Tim Ream is back in training after a pre-season back problem but will not be involved.Watford are unbeaten in the past four meetings and could earn a third successive win over Fulham in all competitions for the first time. Fulham have failed to score in their last three games against Watford, which include a 5-0 Championship defeat at Craven Cottage in December 2014 when Slavisa Jokanovic was in charge of the Hornets. Fulham and Watford are in the top flight together for only the second season. They drew both league fixtures on the previous occasion, in 2006-07.Burnley vs AFC BournemouthTurf Moor, BurnleySaturday, 22-08-2018 @05:00pm (Super Sport 12)Referee: Anthony Taylor Burnley have had a terrible start to the new campaign. They are one of four teams still searching for their first victories and by the kick of the first ball on Saturday, the Clarets sit bottom of the league. However, they will be fancying their chances against a Bournemouth side that has only defeated them once in the last 15 fixtures.Burnley’s joint record signing Ben Gibson had minor hernia surgery on Thursday and is expected to be ruled out for at least another fortnight. Steven Defour and Robbie Brady are both nearing a return from long-term knee injuries but will not play on Saturday.Charlie Daniels could miss out again with a knee problem, while Kyle Taylor has a calf injury and is also a doubt for the visitors. Junior Stanislas might be involved for the first time since suffering knee ligament damage six months ago.Bournemouth earned their first competitive win at Burnley on the final day of last season – at the 15th attempt (D6, L8). Both sides have scored in each of their four Premier League meetings, totalling seven goals apiece.Cardiff City vs Manchester CityCardiff City Stadium, CardiffSaturday, 22-09-2018 @05:00pm (Super Sport 6)Referee: Mike OliverPep Guardiola will be back on the touchline as his European ban does not apply in the Premier League. The Spaniard could only look on from the stands as his side lost 2-1 at home to Lyon in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night. City’s opponents-Cardiff are yet to master a league victory this season and have gone on to lose three of their opening five fixtures. They will have to do well against a much-fancied City side that sits third on the log with 13 points from a possible 15.These two sides met in an FA Cup fourth-round tie last season, with Manchester City recording a 2-0 away win. Cardiff won 3-2 in their only previous Premier League home fixture against Manchester City, in August 2013. City go into the game winless in six top-flight away fixtures against Cardiff since a 3-0 victory in January 1954. The last 10 meetings in all competitions have produced an average of 3.5 goals per match.Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock will assess the fitness of several players who are carrying niggling injuries or have been affected by a virus. Harry Arter returns after illness but Aron Gunnarsson has suffered a setback in his recovery from a knee injury.There could be a Manchester City recall for Sergio Aguero, who was named on the bench against Lyon, but Benjamin Mendy is absent with a bruised metatarsal. Kevin de Bruyne, Eliaquim Mangala, Danilo and Claudio Bravo remain out.Crystal Palace vs Newcastle UnitedSelhurst Park, LondonSaturday, 22-09-2018 @05:00pm (Super Sport 8)Referee: Andre MarrinerCrystal Palace remain without injured striker Christian Benteke, so Jordan Ayew is again expected to start. The trio of Scott Dann, Connor Wickham and Pape Souare are still unavailable.Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles was substituted last weekend with a recurrence of an ankle problem but he is fit to play on Saturday. Jonjo Shelvey could make his first start since returning from a thigh injury, while Salomon Rondon, Kenedy and Ki Sung-yueng may be recalled.Crystal Palace have won one and lost 10 of their last 15 matches in all competitions against Newcastle. However, Newcastle are without a win in three league games at Selhurst Park (D2, L1). The Magpies have only failed to score in one of the 14 Premier League meetings.Leicester City vs Huddersfield TownKing Power Stadium, LeicesterSaturday, 22-09-2015 @05:00pm (Super Sport 11)Referee: David CooteLeicester’s suspended captain Wes Morgan is likely to be replaced by Jonny Evans, although summer signing Caglar Soyuncu could also deputise. Midfielder Matty James is still out after Achilles surgery.Huddersfield captain Jonathan Hogg is available again after serving a three-game suspension. Defender Erik Durm has recovered from a minor back problem but midfielder Ramadan Sobhi remains sidelined with a knee injury.Leicester have won their past seven home league games against Huddersfield. Huddersfield have not won any of the last nine league meetings since 1995. Leicester won 3-0 in last season’s corresponding fixture.Liverpool vs SouthamptonAnfield Stadium, LiverpoolSaturday, 22-09-2018 @05:00pm (Super Sport 5)Referee: Paul TierneyLiverpool go into Saturday’s Premier League fixture on cloud 9 after winning 3-2 at home to PSG in the Champions League. In doing so, manager Jurgen Klopp became the first Red’s tactician to win all his first six competitive fixtures at the start of the season. For Southampton, thay have had an inconsistent start to the current campaign, losing two of their first five games en route to getting five points.Liverpool will be thrilled with the news that striker Roberto Firmino is fully recovered from the eye problem which led to him starting on the bench in the midweek Champions League win. Dejan Lovren is nearing full fitness after a pelvis injury but will not feature, while Divock Origi, Dominic Solanke and Adam Lallana are also out.Southampton must do without on-loan top scorer Danny Ings, who is ineligible to play against his parent club. Fellow forward Manolo Gabbiadini faces a fitness test on a hamstring injury.Manchester United vs Wolverhampton WanderersOld Trafford, ManchesterSaturday, 22-09-2018 @05:00pm (Super Sport 3)Referee: Kevin FriendMan United continued their fine run of form with a 3-0 win at Young Boys in their mid-week European fixture. The victory on Wednesday means that Jose’s charges have now won all their last three competitive fixture after losing two of their first three. Wolves on th other hand are enjoying the return to Premier League football, winning two of their first five whilst losing only one. Their brilliant start has seen them sit only a point and place behind United in the league placings.United go into the game with several issues as Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic are suspended while Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo are not yet considered fit enough to feature. Phil Jones could return from a hamstring problem, while Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia are likely to play after being rested in midweek. Diogo Dalot impressed on debut against Young Boys but his next start is set to come on Tuesday in the Carabao Cup.Wolves could name the same starting XI for a sixth consecutive league game. Ivan Cavaleiro is expected to be their only absentee as he continues his recovery from a back injury.Wolves’ most recent away victory against Manchester United came in the top flight on 9 February 1980, when Melvyn Eves scored the only goal. They have lost their last eight league and cup games away to the Red Devils.Brighton and Hove Albion vs Tottenham HotspursThe American Express Community Stadium, Saturday, 22-09-2018 @07:30pm (Super Sport 3)Referee: Chris KavanaghMidfielder Pascal Gross, who is nursing an ankle injury, remains Brighton’s only absentee. Winger Jose Izquierdo and forward Florin Andone are awaiting their first appearances of the season after returning to fitness.Tottenham will assess Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko, who have returned to training after respective hamstring and knee problems. Hugo Lloris is still injured so Michel Vorm will start in goal. Toby Alderweireld and Kieran Trippier will return to the squad after being rested in Tuesday’s Champions League defeat at Inter Milan.Brighton’s last win against Tottenham was by 2-1 at home in the top flight in April 1983. Spurs are unbeaten in the subsequent four meetings in league and cup (W3, D1), although the only encounter on the south coast was last season’s 1-1 draw. Tottenham have failed to score in just one of their previous 15 matches against Brighton in all competitions.West ham united vs ChelseaLondon Stadium, LondonSunday, 23-09-2018 @03:30pm (Super Sport 3)Referee: Mike DeanFresh from a 1-0 win away to PAOK in the Europa League, Chelsea will hope to maintain their fine start to the league. The Blues have been in scintillating form, winning all their first five games and in the process, setting the early pace. They will look at star player-Edin Hazard who is topping the scoring charts with five goals already. However, they will hope to better their recent record against a side that has won three of its last six home games against Maurcio Sarri’s men.Pedro, who sustained a shoulder injury in Thursday night’s victory at PAOK, is a major doubt for the game.  Mateo Kovacic may also miss out with a minor injury.For the Hammers, Javier Hernandez (flu) is a doubt, while Jack Wilshere (ankle) is sidelined after surgery. Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini and Winston Reid remain long-term absentees.West Ham have won three of their last six Premier League home games against Chelsea (W3 L3), this after previously enduring a six-game winless run (D1 L5). The Hammers ended a 11-game run of conceding against Chelsea at home in the league when they won 1-0 in December – they last kept successive clean sheets at home versus the Blues in August 1969. Only Arsenal (123) have won more Premier League London derbies than Chelsea (121), while West Ham have lost more than any other side in the competition (95). West Ham are without a win in a Premier League London derby since beating Chelsea in December; since then they’ve drawn four and lost two. Chelsea are looking to win their opening six games to a Premier League campaign for the third time (after 2005-06 and 2009-10) – no other side has done it more than once in the competition. The Blues have won the league on both previous occasions they’ve won their first six.Arsenal vs EvertonEmirates Stadium, LondonSunday, 23-09-2018 @06:00pm (Super Sport 3)Referee: Jonathan MossArsenal manager Unei Emery is likely to recall a number of first-team regulars for Arsenal’s Premier League clash at home to Everton on Sunday. The Gunners head coach made eight alterations for Thursday’s 4-2 Europa League win over Vorskla Poltava but the likes of Petr Cech, Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette will be pushing for returns. Laurent Koscielny (Achilles), Sead Kolasinac (knee), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (leg) and Carl Jenkinson (ankle) remain absent.For the visitors, Defender Yerry Mina could come into contention for his debut after a full week of training following a foot problem. Fellow centre-back Phil Jagielka should be ready to train with the squad again next week following a knee injury but Andre Gomes (hamstring) and Seamus Coleman (foot) remain sidelined.Arsenal are unbeaten in 24 home matches against Everton in all competitions (W20 D4) since a 2-1 Premier League defeat in January 1996 under Bruce Rioch. Everton have played more Premier League matches at the Emirates without winning (12 – W0 D4 L8) than any other club. Arsenal have scored more Premier League goals against Everton than any side has managed against another in the competition’s history (105). 49 different players have scored a Premier League goal for Arsenal against Everton – the only side to have more against an opponent in the competition are Chelsea (52 vs Spurs). The Gunners have won more Premier League points in the month of September than any other side in the competition (199). Both of Everton’s away Premier League games this season have finished 2-2, with the Toffees leading in both matches.Comments Tags: premier leaguetoplast_img read more
