Controversial GPL email is fake – Harmon

first_imgMinister of State Joseph Harmon said an investigation will be launched into the contents of an email purportedly sent from an address in the name of former Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO), Ash Deonarine, to a current employee of the utility.The document which surfaced in the public domain last weekend contained damning allegations against several former and current employees of the utility company. The lengthy email suggests that former GPL acting CEO Collin Welch was allegedly framed so that he could be removed from the post. The document also outlined instructions to conceal evidence of a massive meter racket within the company.However, Harmon told the media at the post-Cabinet press conference on Thursday that Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson briefed Cabinet on Tuesday and indicated that initial investigations have revealed that the email address is fake.“Some preliminary investigations had been done and the matter had been handed over to the Police for further investigations. The sense that we got from the brief was that it seems that the email address had been fake, made up,” he stated.Nevertheless, the Minister of State pointed out that the content of the document is of concern to Government, and as such the matter has since been handed over to Police for further investigations.“…the content of the email included matters for which as a Government we have to have some concern so the Police have been given the documents, as I understand from the report given by Minister Patterson, and they are investigating the authenticity of it and any concomitant issues which arises out of that document,” the minister told reporters.GPL has been in the limelight for close to a year now after Deonarine was sent on administrative leave in August last year following the discovery that he allegedly transferred some $27.8 million to his personal account without the approval of the board of directors. He is also accused of paying former board member Carvil Duncan $948,000 that was not authorised.This information was unearthed when the Coalition Administration found that close to $142 million of the PetroCaribe Fund was plugged into the operations of the state-owned GPL after it met an empty PetroCaribe fund when it took office and later launched an investigation.last_img read more

Tiemoue Bakayoko to Chelsea: How does Frenchman compare to departing star?

first_img The French international looks nailed on to replace the outgoing Nemanja Matic With Tiemoue Bakayoko seemingly set to complete a £40million move to Chelsea from Monaco, some space needs to be created in the Blues midfield.The French international looks nailed on to replace the outgoing Nemanja Matic as the 28-year-old prepares to be reunited with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.But who offers more in the engine room of their side’s midfield?Bakayoko starred for Monaco en route to his side’s memorable run to the semi-finals of the Champions League and their first Ligue 1 triumph in 17 years.Matic, meanwhile, helped the Blues reclaim their Premier League crown and went some way to restoring his previously soaring reputation at the heart of the Chelsea midfield.Antonio Conte is likely to wave goodbye to Matic after a single season working together, but will Bakayoko prove to be an upgrade on the Serbian?Style of playBoth players could be defined as midfield destroyers, but it would be doing the pair a disservice to limit their capabilities to simply being a dependable tackler.The flair of Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar and Bernardo Silva captured the imaginations of fans across Europe, but the Monegasque side’s offensive style was built on the solid foundations that Bakayoko and Fabinho provided in Leonardo Jardim’s 4-4-2 formation.The combative and athletic duo offered protection to the backline and were tenacious in their stifling duties, allowing the gifted attackers to shine further up the pitch.Chelsea’s preference to play an adaptable 3-4-3 system allowed them to dominate their opponents and secure the Premier League title with relative ease.PFA Players’ Player of the Year, N’Golo Kante, almost singlehandedly broke up play before allowing the likes of Eden Hazard, Pedro and Diego Costa to flourish.And despite not earning rave reviews, Matic proved to be a nearly ever present member of the Chelsea midfield, making 35 appearances for the champions across the season.Matic was tidy if not spectacular in possession, picking out a teammate with 87.7 per cent of his passes, a slightly better average than Bakayoko’s 87.3 per cent in Ligue 1.However, the more youthful Bakayoko proved he was more capable in terms of covering ground and breaking up play, with his average of 2.8 tackles and 2.3 interceptions per 90 minutes, compared to the Chelsea man’s 1.7 tackles and 1.7 interceptions.But it was Matic who proved to be more of a threat in the attacking-third, with the Serbian completing more key passes per 90 minutes in league action (0.9 to 0.6) which led to him registering seven assists to Bakayoko’s one.However, Bakayoko outscored the man he is set to replace after scoring two goals compared to Matic’s solitary effort. And despite standing 10cm shorter than Matic, Bakayoko displayed superior aerial capability, winning 2.6 per 90 minutes compared to Matic’s 1.3.Show us your medalsWhile the two midfielders are pretty similar, in terms of style, when it comes to honours there is no contest.Matic has a host of trophies to his name – two Premier League titles, one FA Cup, one League Cup, one Primeira Liga title, one Portuguese League Cup and one Slovak Cup.To save you counting, that’s seven club trophies earned during his career with Chelsea, Benfica and Kosice.Meanwhile, Bakayoko lifted his one and only piece of silverware in the form of the Ligue 1 title with Monaco in May.So when it comes down to out-and-out winners – Matic is on top by a mile.International pedigreeWith Bakayoko embarking on what looks to be a promising career on both domestic and international stages, the 22-year-old can expect to prosper for the French national team.But despite enjoying a breakthrough season with Monaco, Bakayoko has managed only a single appearance for Didier Deschamp’s side, in comparison to Matic’s 32.The Chelsea midfielder missed out on representing his country at a major tournament after seeing his name chalked off the list for the final squad at the 2010 World Cup. But the 28-year-old has featured prominently in his side’s qualification campaign for next year’s edition in Russia.Bakayoko, meanwhile, is likely to face a tougher task of confirming his place in Les Bleus’ squad, considering he is directly competing with future teammate N’Golo Kante, Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi and Adrien Rabiot.Should Bakayoko be given the opportunity to shine, he could end the summer of 2018 with football’s biggest prize in his hands.Statistics courtesy of The Sun 1last_img read more

The Pioneers moved into Conquerors territory once in the first half and three drives never got past their 25. “I was really proud of our defense,” Gano said. “We gang tackled tonight. That was the big part of our game we had to improve and we worked on it all week.” Castaneda hit wide receiver Chapelle Brown on the second play of the game for a 79-yard touchdown and the Conquerors never trailed. Quarterback Matt Castaneda completed 8 of 9 pass attempts for 182 yards and two touchdowns in the first half to help the Conquerors take a 21-0 lead. Castaneda finished the game with 289 yards, completing 16 of 19 attempts. He threw TD passes to three different receivers. center_img Brown had five receptions for 135 yards. Rex Foss also had five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown. “We executed our offense,” Gano said. “We had some guys to throw the ball to.” The Pioneers moved the ball deep into Conquerors territory on their first possession of the second half, but they were forced to settle for a field goal after Tony Torres and Brandon Lopez got quarterback sacks and they never got close again. “I was really happy with our D-line,” Gano said. “I wouldn’t have believed if you had told me would beat this team 35-3.” James Davis scored on a 29-yard run in the third quarter and Castaneda hit tight end Raymond Rodriguez early in the fourth for the Conquerors’ final score. Davis led the Conquerors’ ground attack with 84 yards on 13 carries. “We’ll have to run the ball better next week,” Gano said. “Charter Oak is going to be tough and we have a lot of things to work on.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

VOLUNTEERING AND COMMUNITY WORK TOP OF MAJOR SEMINAR’S AGENDA TODAY

first_imgGroup pictured at the seminar to launch “The Impact of the Active Citizen in a Changing Irish Society”2013 is the European Year of Citizens and to mark this year Donegal Town is playing host to a seminar looking at the impact of the active citizen in a changing Irish society.Speakers at today’s event include Tim Hayes, European Commission representative in Ireland, Seamus Boland, Irish Rural Link and Frank Dawson County Manager of Roscommon County Council. This seminar is also a keynote event during Social Inclusion Week and speaking at the event Mayor of Donegal Cllr. Ian McGarvey said that “it is fitting that a seminar on active citizenship should take place in Donegal.“We have, without doubt, one of the most vibrant community and voluntary sectors in the country. Today we are launching the Donegal Community & Voluntary Sector Profile which provides a snapshot in time of the diverse, vibrant and active community and voluntary sector and the wonderful contribution that each group and organisation makes to the county and to the lives of the people living in this county”.The Donegal Community & Voluntary Sector Profile reveals that there are over 750 community organisations operating in Donegal providing services, supports and facilities to the people of Donegal.This profile will help inform policy design and delivery at a local, regional and national level. By mapping out the services, supports and facilities being provided by this sector this profile presents a clear picture of the contribution that this sector makes to life in the county and provides a strong case for ensuring the long term sustainability of the sector. The Seminar is being organised by Donegal County Council and Donegal County Community Forum, in conjunction with Donegal Local Development Company and Donegal Volunteer Centre presented an opportunity to explore how emerging Government Plans and policies may impact on active citizenship in Donegal.Following an overview of the EU Year of Active Citizenship by Tim Hayes, European Commission Representative in Ireland, participants  will hear from Seamus Boland of Irish Rural Link and Frank Dawson, Roscommon County Manager on the changes that are being implemented at present in the Local Government and Local Development sectors.The second part of the Seminar will focus on celebrating and recognising the valuable contribution made by so many active citizens and volunteers through out the county.The fourth annual ME4U awards, facilitated by Donegal Volunteer Centre, recognised the contributions of volunteers and community activists across the County.The Donegal Pride of Place awards ceremony recognised eleven community organisations who have implemented projects in their local areas that have contributed to the community having an increased “pride” in their “place”.Five of these groups will now go on to represent Donegal in the National Pride of Place competition to be held in Derry on the 16th November.
