Chief Justice Worries over Ebola Outbreak at Prison

first_imgChief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor In a move to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus into prison facilities around the country, the Chief Justice Tuesday, August 5, began holding consultative meetings with judicial actors to find a way to temporarily release people from jail on bond.Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor named pretrial detainees (people in jail and not yet sent to court) and convicted prisoners that would not pose any danger to themselves or the society as beneficiaries of the bond initiative.But the Chief Justice was quick to point out that the initiative would be done in line with the laws of the land. “We have to act now or else, if the Ebola virus were to enter our congested cells, I fear that we would be losing hundreds of lives. But we need to take into consideration the laws,” the Supreme Court boss stated.According to him, he and his judicial colleagues have met with the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA), Circuit Court Judges and Magistrates in that direction.“We will be meeting with the Ministry of Justice (MOJ), lawyers and family members of those in prisons, so that we may together discuss the release of their detained relatives on bond,” Chief Justice Korkpor added.He continued, “We will only be releasing them into the care of prominent individuals or their lawyers, who would make sure they return whenever they are needed by the court.”“These are measures that we are putting into place to help save our people in jail from being victims of the deadly virus,” Chief Justice Korkpor reiterated.“If we allow people to die from Ebola in prison, then who are we going to prosecute? The dead or those that are alive in jail?” he asked.Cautioning people against handling of the rapid spread of the virus, the Chief Justice said, “We have to handle this deadly disease with care. We need to do everything humanly possible to help protect the lives of our people.”“The protection of our people against the spread of the disease is my greatest worry.This is the period that we, leaders, need to do so much to protect our people,” Chief Justice Korkpor averred.Another issue, the Chief Justice dealt with was that of the jury selection process.According to him, the laws give the right to a person accused of committing a crime to   decide whether he wants the jury to hear his case or only a judge.The Chief Justice said he and his colleagues were considering a temporary suspension of the jury selection process.“For now we will want only judges to hear cases and not jury. This is to prevent the over crowdedness of the courtroom.”“You know that the Ebola virus can spread faster, if people gathered together at a particular place; so we have to suspend jury congregating at our courts,” Chief Justice Korkpor further explained.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Caretaker Govt petrified to face electorate

first_imgDear Editor,Having issued no Amerindian land titles nor extensions since coming to office in May 2015, the Department of Public Information’s announcement on September 6 that the “Cabinet has given the green light for absolute grants of land titles for eight Indigenous communities” must be met with a huge dose of cynicism.After all, this is a decision of a President and Cabinet that has “stood resigned” since December 21, 2018, according to Article 106 (6) and (7) of our Constitution and upheld by the Caribbean Court of Justice on June 18 and July 12, 2019. Therefore, under what authority will the President sign such absolute grants and titles when the Caribbean Court of Justice explicitly ruled in its consequential orders of July 12 that the Government would be a caretaker Government with restricted legal authority?The same release goes on to refer to the “establishment of legal boundaries” and names four communities – Parabara, Rockstone, Tasserene and Kangaruma. Interesting choice of words. Does this mean that the illegal Cabinet is commencing the demarcation of these communities and therefore the DPI is misinforming and misleading the public and the Amerindian communities that “absolute grants of land titles” are being issued?Without the no-confidence vote and the growing demand for now long overdue elections since March 21, 2019, the caretaker Government would not have moved an inch to issue any absolute grants. This last-minute ditch to win votes in Amerindian communities during Amerindian Heritage Month is just an election gimmick.One must remember that the PPP/C Government left US$10 million for Amerindian Land Titling. Over the past 4 years, the PPP/C has repeatedly raised the issue of no titles and extensions being granted in the National Assembly, in the Parliamentary Sectoral Committee on Natural Resources, and in many other fora to no avail. The National Toshaos Council also repeatedly raised this issue to no avail over these four years. Individual communities have also raised their outstanding applications for extensions and titles with the Government to no avail.This new election gimmick is like another recent announcement of the removal of the 14 per cent VAT for hinterland passengers travelling to interior locations. Following this announcement, the GRA issued a list of 54 airstrips where the VAT would not apply. However, with the exception of Kamarang, few flights, if any, ever go to the other 53 airstrips, maybe only a charter here and there. For example, no planes have gone to the listed airstrips in Region Nine for years with the exception of RAMS.This is another election ruse by a caretaker Government and we should expect and witness many more to come.The Guyanese people remember the plethora of promises of decriminalising marijuana and amending the sentencing for small quantities, the promise of 20 per cent salary increases for public servants and teachers, just to name a few. All are “broken promises.”In the 2019 Amerindian Heritage Month celebrating the first peoples of Guyana, the APNU/AFC is once again trying to fool our Amerindian peoples.September 10, Amerindian Heritage Day, in honour of the first elected Amerindian Member of Parliament, Mr Stephen Campbell, the caretaker President and his large entourage accompanied by its “green cheerleading brigade” descended on the Riverview community.No matter what the caretaker Government promises at this stage, nothing can remove the fact that the electorate knows that this caretaker Government is petrified to face the electorate.Within a few days, on September 18, 2019, the caretaker Government will be illegal.Sincerely,Gail Teixeiralast_img read more

Brazilian fined for illegal entry to Guyana

first_imgA 50-year-old Brazilian was fined and deported after he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Monday to answer to a charge of illegal entry.Jose Perriera stood before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and admitted to the charge which stated that on March 30, 2019, at Lethem, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo), he entered Guyana by land and did not present himself to an immigration officer at the port of entry.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield told the court on Monday that on April 10, 2019, the defendant was detained by ranks attached to B Division (Berbice) of the Guyana Police Force, who were at the time conducting a search at the Berbice Bridge. Perriera was asked to present his travel documents but failed to do so. As a result, he was escorted to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) headquarters, where he admitted by means of an interpreter that he entered Guyana via Lethem by riding a bicycle over the border.The unrepresented Brazilian, in a plea of mitigation, told the court that he came to Guyana in search of a better job.The Chief Magistrate fined Perriera $30,000. Failure to pay the fine will result in him serving three weeks in prison. He was also deported.last_img read more

Berbice regional authorities want CoI into corrupt Police

first_img…say citizens not confident about uncompromised OPRIn light of the damning allegations that not only rogue policemen were helping three now dead bandits who wreaked havoc in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) in recent months, but that a senior police officer, specifically a Deputy Police Commissioner, was also a part of this network, there should be a Commission of Inquiry.Berbice Regional Chairman David ArmoganThis is according to Berbice’s Regional Chairman, David Armogan, who on Saturday told Guyana Timesthat such serious allegations warrant an independent body to conduct investigations into the matter so as to allow for a fair probe as well as prevent victimisation of Police ranks who are willing to testify.“The idea of asking Police who are suspected to be whistleblowers to make a statement is a ridiculous one because no policeman in their right senses who would want to stay on their job is going to give evidence to that effect that an officer is involved. They are not going to take that risk because obviously they would be discriminated against and most likely they will find a way of getting them out of the Force,” the Chairman said.He added that while the Guyana Police Force (GPF) and the Government have both declared that investigations are ongoing, it is wiser to have persons outside of the local law enforcement agencies lead the probe.Dead bandit: Kelvin “Kelly” ShivgobinAccording to Armogan, the Berbice Regional Democratic Council (RDC), has been receiving sporadic reports from concerned citizens in that county, inclusive of police officers, that are questioning the next step that can and will be taken to deal with this matter.“They are asking what is it that we are doing about it, if these police have spilt the beans, why is it that we cannot put pressure on the Government to come up with an independent investigation? To bring the truth of the story out because if this thing continues it does not spell, look good for the future. If this continues and you have some rogue police officers who are bent on associating with criminals to create havoc in Berbice here, that is going to be unacceptable and at some point, the people would have to react,” the Regional Chairman said.OPR probeOn Friday last, the GPF told the media that the matter(s) are under investigation by the Police Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) despite the fact that the police “whistleblowers” had stated that they were more confident and comfortable with a probe into the allegations being done by external sources so that the investigations could not be compromised.Damning allegationsRanks in Berbice made some damning allegations against their colleagues, one of which was that a police rank was closely connected with the criminal network that terrorised and traumatised residents in the ancient country earlier this year.According to a police source, it was a rank who was stationed at the Rose Hall Police Station and upon notice of the allegation, he was transferred to the New Amsterdam Police Station.He is said to still be on duty as investigations continue.It was alleged that this particular rank had been associated with now dead criminal Kelvin “Kelly” Shivgobin, who was shot and killed recently in the backlands of Black Bush Polder during a shootout with the police. It was further alleged that the policeman and the now dead bandit’s relationship dates back to when Shivgobin was arrested and charged for the murder of a businessman.According to sources, the rank in question had been one of the investigating ranks in that murder case. The matter was dismissed in April 2018, and Shivgobin was set free after the Magistrate stated that there was not enough evidence to keep him in custody.But some months after his release, there was new evidence to have Shivgobin rearrested. However, it was disclosed that Shivgobin was never rearrested.This publication was also told by senior regional authorities that the alleged corrupt rank is “being shielded” by a high-ranking officer who is presently stationed outside of B Division (Berbice).Additionally, reports were that when the three bandits were shot and killed in Black Bush Polder recently, the call logs and the contact lists of the cellphones that were found in their possession contained numbers of police ranks.last_img read more

Lancers win on wild night

first_imgGLENDORA – After three wild innings at a packed Goddard Middle School field Wednesday night, Jordan Fox finally finished what he started. The junior first baseman, who hit a towering home run to right field on the first pitch of the game, hit a two-run, go-ahead single in the top of the eighth inning to lead the Bishop Amat High School baseball team to a 7-5 victory over Glendora in the third round of pool play of the Glendora Tournament. Fox’s lead-off home run in the first held up through five innings thanks to the efficient pitching of sophomore starter Brady Zuniga. And after the Lancers scored a pair of insurance runs to take a 3-0 lead in the top of the sixth, the game looked to be well in hand. But the Tartans (2-1) chased Zuniga after two batters in the bottom half of the sixth and put together two runs off reliever Bryan Seymour on a sacrifice fly by Kevin Roundtree and a wild pitch that scored Kurt Vogel to cut the lead to 3-2. Later in the inning, freshman Woody Woodward came with the big blow, a bases-loaded double off the wall in center to cash in two runs and give the Tartans their first lead, 4-3. Leading 5-3 heading into the seventh, Glendora reliever Frankie Rivera came on and quickly retired the first two batters. But the Lancers weren’t done. After two hit batsmen, the Lancers loaded the bases with one out on a bunt that was picked up and held by Tartans reliever Stephen Chakerian – the fifth of seven Glendora pitchers – when no one moved to cover first base. The left-handed Fox then ripped the ball down the left-field line to give the Lancers (3-0) the win. “Any time you can win a game like that, it’s exciting,” Amat coach Andy Nieto said. “It was exciting for everyone that stood here. I think it was worth the money they paid.” center_img Rivera was replaced by Nathan Rollon after giving up two walks and a single to load the bases, and eventual winning pitcher Andrew Mistone smashed a single to left to drive in two and tie the game at 5. Glendora had one more big opportunity with the bases loaded and none out in the bottom of the seventh. But Nieto brought in a fifth infielder and the strategy paid off as Mistone got an infield fly, strikeout and a comebacker to end the threat. “It’s a gamble, that’s all it is,” Nieto said of the defensive alignment. “If it works out, it looks great.” darren.spoon@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2239 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
