‘Delay Tactics’?

first_imgThe Supreme Court halted last Friday’s scheduled oral argument of its “stay order” after the lawyers representing two political parties asked the court to postpone the hearing.Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor granted the appeal less than an hour following Cllr. Laveli Supuwood’s request to do so.Cllr. Supuwood is a senatorial aspirant for Montserrado County and a lawyer for the Movement for Progressive Change (MPC) and the National Democratic Coalition (NDC).The parties together with the Concerned Group of Eminent Citizens and Civil Society Groups filed the lawsuit against the National Elections Commission (NEC) and the Ministry of Justice (MOJ), following which the stay order was issued.They are contending against NEC and MOJ’s handling of the spread and transmission of the Ebola virus in the wake of the scheduled election, which they claimed raises serious constitutional issues.In his decision, Chief Justice Korkpor clarified that even though the parties had been notified by the full bench to file their brief earlier, before the case was scheduled for hearing, “for [the sake of] transparent justice not for the lawyer but for the clients, we are granting the request to postpone the argument.”But the Chief Justice warned, “We will not accept any more delay tactics from any lawyers in this matter.” He further instructed, “You are given up to Saturday, December 6, to file your brief.”Chief Justice Korkpor also rejected several contentions raised by NEC and MOJ’s lawyers concerning the failure of Cllr. Supuwood to file his brief at the time specified by the Justice in Chambers, Associate Justice Philip A.Z. Banks.Justice Banks, who initially heard the case and placed a stay order on all election activities, gave the parties four days to file their respective briefs, as of November 28.Justice Banks also rejected the contention that since the Cllr. Supuwood had failed to file his brief before last Friday’s hearing, he should be held in contempt of court and made to pay a fine.NEC and MOJ lawyers further argued that Cllr.  Supuwood’s action was deliberate and intended to delay the process, but their request was again ignored.  The Chief Justice, however, rescheduled the hearing to today, Monday, December 8.However, legal experts explained to the Daily Observer that a party filing the appeal – known as the petitioner or appellant – who is attempting to convince the highest court to halt the NEC’s decision, is responsible for submitting its brief first.But that did not happen in the case with Cllr. Supuwood.   Instead, when he appeared before the Full Bench, last Friday, he pleaded with them to postpone the matter.“I received the opposing party’s briefs on Thursday, December 4, a day before the hearing of the matter, and it raised very serious constitutional issues; so I need enough time to adequately prepare myself to defend the interest of my clients,” Cllr. Supuwood told the High Court.A brief is a legal document that explains why the reviewing court should affirm or reverse the lower court’s judgment based on legal precedent and citation to the controlling cases of statutory law.The legal expert further said that “if a party fails to file an appellant’s opening brief or a respondent’s brief, the reviewing court clerk must promptly notify the party.“Supuwood’s argument is that he only received the other party’s brief on Thursday, a day before the holding of the oral arguments.It is based on the filing of the brief that the High Court should have issued the notice for the hearing.“What the lawyers need to understand is that the election is very crucial to the nation and is time-bound.  Therefore, nobody should accept any delay tactic that would send us back to the dark days out of which our country has come,” said the legal expert.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Peace is a dividend for enhanced competitiveness. Peace must be promoted in MERCOSUR, its associated states and throughout the continent.”Noting that common markets flourish in conditions of peace and security and falter when there are instability and uncertainty, President Granger said that Guyana remained committed to the principles of mutual respect for each other’s territory, mutual non-aggression between States, mutual non-interference in each other’s internal affairs, and mutual cooperation for peaceful coexistence among States.“Guyana repeats its invocation for MERCOSUR to continue its vigilance to safeguard the sovereignty and security of its small states on this continent and toPresident Granger (far right) among the leaders at the 51st Summit of the Heads of State of MERCOSUR and Associated States at the Itamaraty Palace, Brasiliaeliminate the economic inequalities and political controversies that separate them.  This continent must be a zone of peace… Guyana, as a small state, with fewer than one million people, seeks cordial relations with all States,” he said.President Granger also told the Summit that Guyana looked towards infrastructuralPresident Granger greeting Brazil’s President, Michel Temercooperation with the countries on the South American continent to establish highways, railways and bridges from the south to the north to enable the movement of goods and people.“Guyana’s continental destiny is tied to integration of the continent. Guyana has a role to play as the gateway for South America to the markets of the Caribbean, Central America and North America,” he said.Given Guyana’s firm global stance on environmental protection, the President used the opportunity to appeal to his South American counterparts in MERCOSUR to take more concerted actions to address global warming and climate change, which could harm production and impair trade. He noted, too, that climate change and other natural hazards were degrading the continent’s productive assets.The President, who is currently on an official State Visit to Brazil, is accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Carl Greenidge, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman, Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson and senior officers from the Foreign Affairs Ministry.Additionally, the Head of State and his delegation on Thursday morning inked two agreements with the Federative Republic of Brazil on the sidelines of the Summit.The first agreement is a Complementary Agreement to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Cooperative Republic of Guyana and the Federative Republic of Brazil, which creates the “Guyana-Brazil Joint Commission to Develop Infrastructure Projects” .The second Complementary Agreement is to the Basic Agreement on Technical Cooperation between the Government of the Republic of Guyana and the Federative Republic of Brazil for the Implementation of the Project – “Technologies to Reduce the Effects of the Drought in Region 9 of Guyana”.last_img read more

Man sells St Cuthbert’s woman counterfeit US$1400

first_imgA St Cuthbert’s Mission woman was defrauded of about GY$280,000 after a man sold her US$1400, which turned out to be counterfeit currency.Vimmi Ramnarace, speaking with Guyana Times on Tuesday morning said the man visited her place on business last Friday and pretended to be an overseas-based Guyanese, who returned home.She said at about 14:45h the man, who identified himself as “Mr Sunil” visited her business establishment in the company of a group of men, who were not known to her.The 49-year-old woman related that the men then proceeded to purchase beer at her shop, which amounted to some $10,000. When it was time to pay, “Sunil” then told her that he only had United States currency.“He said he don’t have any Guyana money,” she related, stating that she hesitantly accepted the cash and converted it to Guyanese currency and paid him his change.The woman then related that the men and “Sunil” remained at the shop for a period of time. It was during this time that “Sunil” and her began conversing about his trips between Guyana and Long Island, New York.“He start talk with me and me seh me plan to go away next month. So, he say he just come in from Long Island and he got some more money, if me want buy it. So me say yes because he said he giving me fuh $200 [per US dollar],” she explained.This led to her trusting him and handing over $280,000 to the suspect, who in turn gave her US$1400.Ramnarace said after completing the transaction, “Sunil” asked her to cook something for him and his friends, informing her that they were going to drive around the village and come back.However, after some time passed, the woman said she became suspicious.“…Then me start get worried like [and I start] think like if this is not good money and when my husband come home, me show he and he said is not good money,” she said.Ramnarace said she immediately tried to contact “Sunil” on a mobile number he had left her, however, the person that answered claimed to be “Vishal” and said he had no knowledge of the transaction with her.“…but when me son add he number to he Whatsapp, is the same “Sunil” picture with the same clothes he wear when he come to the shop show up,” the woman said.The woman further relayed that since it was already late in the afternoon, and Saturday last was a holiday, Ramnarace said she had to wait until Monday to travel to Georgetown.The businesswoman alleged that she visited a cambio first, and was informed that the US dollars in her possession were counterfeit. She was advised to report the matter to the Criminal Investigations Department at Eve Leary, where the matter is being investigated.Efforts to make contact with the Crime Chief Paul Williams proved futile.Ramnarace has been living at St Cuthbert’s Mission for the past 32 years and has been an owner of a business for 10 years. She said that this is the first time something of this nature has happened to her.last_img read more

With 220-pound gold coin, Canada seizes mint status

first_imgEvans said the Canadian mint recently lost some market share as mints in Australia, Austria, China and the United States pushed their own high-quality gold coins. What does one do with a 220-pound gold coin? Evans said bullion dealers use it as a promotional tool. A Japanese dealer, he said, puts one of the Austrian coins in public venues to draw people’s attention. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! OTTAWA – Got change for a million? Canada does: the world’s biggest pure gold coin at 220 pounds. Already, three buyers have shelled out for one of the $1 million Canadian coins introduced last week. The Royal Canadian mint made the coins – 20 inches in diameter and 1 inch thick – mostly to seize the bragging rights from Austria, which had the record with a 70-pound, 15-inch-wide coin. “They’re not doing this because there is huge demand for 100-kilo gold coins,” Bret Evans, editor of Canadian Coin News, said Saturday. “They’re doing it because it gives them some bragging rights in having the largest purest gold coin in the world.” “They’ll kick the Austrians out of the Guinness World Book of Records,” he said. Listed as 99.999 percent pure gold bullion, the coin features Queen Elizabeth II on one side and Canada’s national symbol – the maple leaf – on the other. It takes about six weeks to make and has a face value of a million Canadian dollars ($903,628), though it sells for approximately $2.7 million depending on the market value of gold. The coins will give the mint a higher international profile. “We wanted to raise the bar so that we could say the government of Canada, or the Royal Canadian Mint, produced the purest gold coins in the world,” said David Madge, the mint’s director of bullion and refinery services. Austria’s 100,000-euro coin ($138,155) was 70 pounds and 15 inches in diameter. last_img read more

Dele double sparks Spurs delight at Chelsea

first_imgEnding their long wait for a win at their London rivals is just the latest sign of the progress made under Mauricio Pochettino as Spurs look set to seal a place in the Champions League for a third straight season.And it was even more impressive as they came from behind as a huge error from captain Hugo Lloris gifted Alvaro Morata the opening goal.Christan Eriksen’s wonder strike levelled in first-half stoppage time, before Alli took centre stage to end a barren run by his standards with two smart finishes just after the hour mark.Spurs could even afford the luxury of doing the damage without Harry Kane, who made his return from a three-week layoff with ankle ligament damage 16 minutes from time.Alli was pushed into a more advanced role than his usual roving role behind Kane and had the first chance but couldn’t direct Eriksen’s cross goalwards.Chelsea were the side far more in desperate need of the points and that began to show as the first-half developed.Willian and Victor Moses forced Lloris into comfortable saves, whilst Marcos Alonso also saw a goal ruled out for offside.However, the French number one was clearly at fault when the opener arrived on the half hour mark.Morata hadn’t scored in the Premier League since Boxing Day, but no one has scored more headed goals in the league this season and he was left with the easiest of tasks to nod into an empty net as Lloris flapped at Moses’s cross.– Symbolic Spurs win –Willian of Chelsea is put under pressure by Dele Alli of Tottenham Hotspur during the Premier League match between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge on April 1, 2018 in London, England.Lloris was also far from secure when he parried Alonso’s driven cross back into the danger area and relied on Jan Vertonghen to make a crucial clearance.Eriksen’s shooting ability from long range had been Spurs’ only real threat before the break.Willy Caballero, deputising for the injured Thibaut Courtois, got a strong hand to the Dane’s first warning shot.However, Caballero was helpless when Eriksen’s fierce dipping effort clipped the bar on its way past him in first-half stoppage time.The Argentine goalkeeper was forced into a brilliant save from another long-range effort, this time from Son Heung-min, on the hour mark as Spurs started to take control.And two minutes later they led when Alli brilliantly controlled Eric Dier’s long pass before slotting inside Caballero’s near post.Alli had scored just two goals in his previous 19 games in 2018 but soon had as many in four minutes as Spurs set the seal in a hugely symbolic win.Son was again denied by Caballero but Alli pounced on the pinball inside the Chelsea area before slotting into the bottom corner.Chelsea manager Antonio Conte kicked a water bottle into his dugout with the frustration of a man who knows his days in charge.Failure to make the top four is likely to seal the Italian’s fate no matter what comes of Chelsea’s run to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.However, Spurs too are in the last four and on this evidence are more likely to end their wait for a trophy under Pochettino, particularly with Kane back to lead the line.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Dele Ali celebrates one of his two goals against Chelsea during an English premier League clash at Stamford Bridge on April 1, 2018LONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 1- Dele Alli scored twice in four second-half minutes as Tottenham Hotspur beat Chelsea 3-1 on Sunday to end a 28-year wait for a Premier League win at Stamford Bridge.Defeat for the hosts all but ends Chelsea’s hopes of Champions League football next season as Spurs opened up an eight-point lead over their closest challengers for fourth place.last_img read more

United legend dismisses back-room staff tension

first_img1 Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs has played down talk of a rift with Louis van Gaal and hailed their “great working relationship”.Suggestions of a problem between the pair emerged when former midfielder Giggs was cool in his celebrations after Ashley Young’s winning goal against Newcastle on Wednesday.However, the 41-year-old dismissed talk of tension and praised United boss Van Gaal.Giggs said: “It’s coming to that part of the season where the media will look at any little thing to make it more exciting and more interesting.“Me and Louis have a great working relationship. He’s given me a massive opportunity and I’m taking it. I’m working as hard as I can and I’m enjoying every minute of it.”The Red Devils legend was handed the reins at Old Trafford for the last four games of last season after David Moyes’ exit before being given the role of assistant alongside Van Gaal when he joined the club in May.The former Wales international is relishing the task of being involved at the club where he spent his entire senior career and learning from the 63-year-old Dutchman.“He’s won everything and to work under someone like Louis is a great experience for me and he’s been brilliant with me,” Giggs added.“He’s given me a lot of responsibility and of course I have told him as much as I can about the Premier League and what to expect.“I’ve really enjoyed working under him and learning something new every day.” Ryan Giggs and Louis van Gaal last_img read more

Patients in the dark about doctors’ addictions

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO – Thousands of doctors hooked on drugs and alcohol continue to practice medicine while receiving treatment for substance abuse, yet most patients will never know about their physicians’ addictions. This is because of confidential “physician health programs” in nearly every state that allow doctors to keep diagnosing, prescribing and performing surgery as long as they stick with an approved rehab regimen. Despite some unsettling cases, these arrangements have largely escaped public scrutiny until this summer, when California’s medical board outraged physicians across the country by abolishing its 27-year-old program allowing doctors to get help without telling their patients. A review concluded that the state-run program failed to protect patients – or help addicted doctors get better. But the medical community fiercely defends confidential treatment, saying it keeps patients safer. Supporters of such programs say that cases in which patients are harmed by doctors in treatment are extremely rare, and would pale next to the havoc that could result if physicians had no such option. “If you don’t have confidential participation, you don’t get people into the program,” said Sandra Bressler, the California Medical Association’s senior director for medical board affairs. “And if they’re out there, you’re not going to know about them anyway.” California’s program ends June 30. If no alternative program is adopted, the rules could revert back to the zero-tolerance policy in place before 1980, when doctors who were found by the medical board to have drug or alcohol problems were immediately stripped of their licenses. No other state has followed California’s lead. But the president of California’s medical board, Dr. Richard Fantozzi, said that behind the scenes, regulators nationwide share his ambivalence toward such programs. “To hide something from consumers, something so blatant … it’s unconscionable today,” Fantozzi said. Between 10percent and 15percent of physicians nationwide will have a substance-abuse problem at some point in their lives, a rate similar to that of the general population, according to widespread estimates. Opponents of such programs are unable to cite any documented cases in which doctors who were confidentially undergoing treatment botched operations while drunk or high. But they say the very secrecy of the programs makes it hard to assess the risks. Nevertheless, some doctors have been accused of harming patients while they were in treatment. Opponents of California’s program have focused on the case of Dr. Brian West, a Long Beach plastic surgeon who has been accused of negligence by the state medical board and is fighting to keep his license. In 1999, West performed a double mastectomy and breast-reconstruction surgery on Becky Anderson. The procedure left her with gaping, infected wounds that wouldn’t close and, ultimately, a grotesque lump the size of a melon caused by organs spilling through an unhealed hole in her abdomen. Weeks before performing his final, futile procedure on her, West was arrested for a drunken-driving accident. After his conviction, West entered the diversion program for alcoholism. A year later, he performed a tummy tuck on a 37-year-old woman that also healed poorly. West ultimately flunked out of the treatment program after investigators uncovered a pattern of relapses, binge drinking and doctored urine tests that “demonstrate that he is a physician who has been long and chronically impaired by alcohol,” according to a 2005 medical board complaint. West’s supporters say he has been made a scapegoat, asserting that he is not to blame for his patients’ complications and that the severity of his drinking problem has been exaggerated by investigators. “I have no information from any of my investigations that Dr. West has ever cared for patients while under the influence of alcohol,” said his attorney, Dominique Pollara. West admitted no fault in settling Anderson’s malpractice lawsuit for $250,000, Pollara said. The tummy-tuck patient lost her malpractice case. Without the assurance of confidentiality, some say, addicted doctors will go underground and continue to practice without getting any treatment at all. Jim Conway, a Venice drug and alcohol counselor, said that before confidential treatment programs, doctors would do whatever they could to hide their addiction for fear they would lose their licenses. At a Pomona hospital where Conway worked, an alcoholic obstetrician came to work and delivered a baby while “dead drunk,” he said. In the process, the doctor severed the newborn’s spine. “And that’s how it will be if they just do a punitive approach,” Conway said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Nationwide, more than 5,000 physicians are enrolled in physician health programs, according to the results of an upcoming study obtained by The Associated Press. But that number is likely much higher, since not all states with programs participated in the survey, said Dr. Greg Skipper, head of Alabama’s physician health program and a principal investigator on the not-yet-published Robert Wood Johnson Foundation study. Skipper says between 7,500 and 8,000 doctors are likely in treatment – about 1percent of all physicians practicing in the U.S. Most addiction specialists favor allowing doctors to continue practicing while in confidential treatment, as does the American Medical Association. last_img read more
