Police Officer Killers Denied Bail

first_imgFamily members of four of the seven persons accused of spilling gasoline on senior police officer Amos Tutu, and setting him ablaze, yesterday could not hold back their tears after a request to bail the men was denied by Judge Roosevelt Z. Willie, of Criminal Court A.Chief Inspector Tutu of the Police Support Unit (PSU) was on February 27, 2010, allegedly burnt to death by the defendants, on Capitol Bye-pass, in Monrovia.Chief Inspector Tutu was said to have been murdered, after he allegedly shot and killed a man identified as Preston Davis during a scuffle over rent fees received by Davis for an apartment.The defendants’ legal team sought the court’s approval to release them on bail, contending that they have been in detention for over five years (or over twenty terms of court) without having their day in court, which, according to defense lawyers, is equivalent to abandonment and waiver.They also quoted Chapter 13.1 of the Criminal Procedural Law, which provides that “a person in custody for the commission of a capital offense shall before conviction be entitled as a right to be admitted to bail, unless the proof is evident or the presumption is great that the defendant is guilty of the offense.”However, Judge Willie, in denying the “Motion to Admit to Bail,” said “doing so would amount to undoing the act of the late Judge James W. Zota with whom we have concurrent jurisdiction.”Judge Willie said in 2011, the defense team filed a similar motion before the late Judge Zota which was denied.That denial, he said, created an opportunity for the defense team to have immediately asked for a speedy trial during which the defendants would have exonerated themselves from the charge. “Records show that the prosecution had made all efforts for the defendants to be accorded due process but there is no record to show that they made such efforts to assign the case for hearing,” Judge Willie noted.He said, “The defense has not made use of the opportunity as it was informed by the late Judge James W. Zota.”Prior to Judge Willie’s decision, the prosecution argued that without the motion for a speedy trial, it would have been a violation of the Supreme Court’s opinion, on concurrence jurisdiction, “wherein a previous judge has denied defendants’ bail.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Union blames mining company, GGMC for death of geologist

first_img– demands full investigationThe People’s United and General Workers Union has said it was holding Troy Resources responsible for the death of one of its workers, who died during a collapse at the Karouni Mine, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) one week ago.Ryan Taylor, 33, of Lot 85 Lamaha Street, Alberttown, Georgetown, and three other persons were working on the construction of a “bench” in a mining pit when there was a slippage, which led to him falling and being covered by debris.Dead: Ryan TaylorOn Monday, administrator of the union, Lincoln Lewis, during a press conference, said that the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission and the Social Protection Ministry were also responsible owing to the lack of inspection and safety standards.“The sad and gruesome passing of this young man is a grim reminder of the potential danger in mining and the need for strict compliance with safety rules by the employer and even more strict inspection and enforcement of safety standards by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC),” he said.After the incident, Guyana Times understands, it took some time to get Taylor from under the rubble and by the time he was pulled out, it was too late.Troy Resources later confirmed that the industrial accident occurred about 02:25h on October 8 when the geologist was standing above an excavated working face. The embankment he was standing on collapsed and he suffered fatal injuries as a consequence.Lewis on Monday argued that the workers at Troy Resources are subjected to work under unsafe conditions, and pointed out that there have been similar incidents at the same site, much to the company’s knowledge.“We hold those at the GGMC and the Ministry of Social Protection equally accountable along with the employer for the conditions of work which Ryan Taylor and his colleagues are subjected to working under. It was not unknown to them. In 2016, there was a severe wall failure in Smarts Stage Three pit at the Karouni Mine. The Union reached out to GGMC and the Ministry time and time again, all to no avail,” Lewis said.As a result, the Union has called for a complete investigation into the death of Taylor and the implementation of safety guidelines at the location.“There appears to be no respect for laws of our land, governing industrial practices, protecting workers and dictating how foreign investors are expected to function … The Union demands a full and complete investigation into the death and reiterates that we will not rest until justice is done and standard safety practices are implemented at the mine site,” Lewis reiterated.Managing Director Ken Nilsson had informed that mining operations at Karouni, have been temporarily suspended. However, in light of the incident, Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman has since instructed the GGMC to begin making the necessary preparations for a thorough investigation of the matter.A report is expected to be compiled and submitted upon completion. In the interim, all work in the area of construction has been ordered ceased pending the investigation.last_img read more

Brakes slammed on 405 HOV lane

first_imgThat requirement led to the project receiving special authorization from the state Legislature to follow an alternative construction method called design-build. MTA officials said Friday that transportation commission staffers might have misunderstood the construction timelines involved in the design-build process. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other city officials are expected to lobby the commission next week in Sacramento. A group of lawmakers from L.A. also has begun circulating a letter of protest to the commission. “The recommendations are severely shortsighted, as any one of the 360,000 commuters who use the 405 every day would verify,” said Matt Szabo, a Villaraigosa spokesman. “The people of Los Angeles voted for the bond in good faith that the promises of traffic relief would be kept.” The project involves building a high-occupancy-vehicle lane for a 10-mile stretch along the northbound 405 between the 10 and 101 freeways. The total cost of the project is $950 million. MTA officials had sought, and expected to receive, $730 million in bond revenues, as recommended last month by the Caltrans staff. Caltrans and the transportation commission, however, are separate agencies with separate staffs that each issue their own recommendations for project funding. Two meetings ahead Ultimately, the nine governor-appointed commissioners will vote on the final package and submit it for legislative approval. At its next two meetings – Tuesday in Sacramento and Feb. 28 in Orange County – the CTC is scheduled to allocate up to $4.5 billion from Proposition 1B. The money represents the portion of the bond known as the Corridor Mobility Improvement Account and specifically targets efforts to ease traffic congestion. But commission staffers decided to recommend allocating $2.8 billion statewide from the account, saying many of the other projects were not ready for funding. Staffers said they believed the 405 project would be ready to start construction in 2011 – a relatively late date compared with some of the other projects that are vying for bond funding. But MTA officials said the staff may have misunderstood the project, and that the application indicated that construction would begin in 2009. Commission Executive Director John Barna said the staff had a tight deadline to review and make its recommendations on the list of 149 projects. He said any misunderstandings about timelines and details could be resolved at the commission hearing Tuesday. “Based on the information we had, we were concerned about the delivery risks,” Barna said. “If in fact those risks can be reduced by the MTA or Caltrans, I think the commission staff and probably the commission would take a look at the project in an entirely different light.” The commission staff recommendation did, however, seek to restore funding for another project in the San Fernando Valley that had been left off Caltrans’ short list. Staffers agreed with a request for $73 million to fund construction of a car-pool lane on the Golden State Freeway between the 134 and the 170. That 10-mile project is expected to cost $606 million. Still, Brendan Huffman, president of the San Fernando Valley Industry and Commerce Association, said the group was disappointed by the commission’s recommendations. “Both the I-5 and 405 car-pool lanes need to be built,” Huffman said. “The I-5 car-pool lane has a much smaller price tag than the 405, but the Sepulveda Pass should be on the list too. It’s miserable.” Highway 138 snub Another local project that was left off the list was improvements to Highway 138 in the Antelope Valley. The MTA had sought $110 million for two segments of the project, but the staff rejected both requests, saying there could be other potential sources of state funds. “I am astonished,” said Assemblyman Mike Feuer, D-West Hollywood, whose district includes the 405. “The utter failure of the CTC to even bother to contact Caltrans or the MTA to make an intelligent decision is unbelievable to me. “It places federal funding in jeopardy. “(But) I don’t consider this a done deal,” Feuer added. “And I’m going to do everything I can to fight to get this project funded.” harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “(Friday’s) recommendations by the CTC are an insult to the people of L.A. County,” said county Supervisor Gloria Molina, chairwoman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board. “Twenty-eight percent of California’s residents live in L.A. County and we are burdened with one-third of the state’s congestion. Yet under the CTC’s proposal, we will receive less than 12 percent of the funding currently available. This is unacceptable.” Decision Tuesday The commission will meet Tuesday to consider recommendations and make its final decision on which projects to fund. The panel could override its staff recommendations, but local officials fear that federal funding could be jeopardized for the 405 project, which had been authorized for federal matching funds based on a tight timeline. SACRAMENTO – California transportation officials cut more than $1 billion worth of freeway projects Friday that had been sought for Los Angeles County – including a badly needed car-pool lane for the 405 – as the state gears up to begin doling out billions of dollars in bond revenues. The staff of the California Transportation Commission proposed just $327 million for the region – far short of the $1.8 billion local MTA officials had sought and the $1.5 billion that Caltrans had recommended. And the staff urged that a key project for the northbound San Diego Freeway not receive any funds in the first round of allocations of $19.9 billion in voter-approved transportation bonds. The move was a grim surprise for Los Angeles transportation officials and activists, who last month were cheered when the project was included on a short list recommended by Caltrans staffers. last_img read more

Five reasons why Chelsea could blow the Premier League title too!

first_imgGoing out of the Champions League will be a huge blow for Chelsea and Jose Mourinho as he looks to get the Blues back to the summit of European football.Fortunately for the Blues, they are five points clear at the summit of the Premier League, with a game in hand to boot.Surely the title is in the bag? It should be, but it’s never over until mathematically certain.The Portuguese manager now faces the test of keeping Chelsea on track for their first Premier League title since 2010.Can he do it? Is there any hope for the chasing pack, namely Manchester City?Take a look at the slideshow above and let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below… 5 5 3. Mourinho could be losing the special touch – In recent weeks, the Portuguese boss has made some intriguing decisions. Sending Didier Drogba on against Paris Saint-Germain, when the pacier and more energetic Juan Cuadrado could have provided a counter attacking threat on Wednesday seemed bizarre and his inclination not to play starlet Ruben Loftus-Cheek, despite his progression this season, would suggest Mourinho is fearful about losing his grip on top spot. 5 4. The goals are drying up – At the start of the campaign, Jose Mourinho’s men were rampant. Six goals against Everton and NK Maribor, five against Schalke and four against Swansea City, but now they’ve only hit four goals in their last four Premier League games. And Diego Costa is now SEVEN games without a goal. Worrying. 1. A tough run in – Chelsea have a game in hand and sit five points above Manchester City but with games against Southampton, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all to come they could drop a few points. It may also concern Mourinho his men have to face four sides that are battling against the drop, especially following their defeat to Sunderland at the end of last season. 2. ‘The Campaign’ – If there truly is a ‘campaign’ against the Blues, as Mourinho says there is, we can expect a few decisions to go against them in the coming weeks. Chelsea shouldn’t anticipate any more penalties for a while, and many other things could be about to scupper their chances of glory in the Premier League. 5. A Champions League hangover – click the arrow to see five more reasons Chelsea might not win the title – The Blues will want to get over the devastating result on Wednesday as quick as possible but up next in the Premier League they face a tricky test against Southampton on Sunday, while a rejuvenated Hull side, who have only lost one of their last five follow a week later. 5 5last_img read more

PENSIONER TELLS COURT NOT TO MENTION DAUGHTER’S NAME DURING FARM DISPUTE

first_imgAn 89 year old woman told a court she didn’t want her daughter’s name mentioned during a court battle over a farm left in a contested will.89 yr old Nora Gildea at Letterkenny courthouse yesterday.Pensioner Nora Gildea became involved in heated exchanges with barrister Peter Nolan during the case which is being heard at Donegal Circuit Civil Court in Letterkenny. At one stage Mrs Gildea was asked about her daughter whom he has not spoken to for a number of years.Mrs Gildea replied “Don’t f****** talk to me about that woman. I don’t want to hear her f******* name.”The case has divided the Gildea and Kelly families who have sat on opposite sides of the courtroom during the hearing.Mrs Gildea is contesting land left to her daughter Nora Kelly by her brother William John Kennedy when he died in 2007.In total there are four people claiming the 12 hectare farm located at Correnagh, just 5kms outside Letterkenny.Mrs Kelly is seeking to establish ownership of the farm while Mrs Gildea is claiming some of the lands.Mrs Gildea’s sons are also claiming some of the land – Christopher is claiming the entire farm while Daniel is claiming ownership to a shed and some land around it.Nora KellyMrs Gildea had to be helped into the witness box yesterday (WED) to give her evidence.The mother of nine claimed she worked on the farm for her brother while also rearing her children and that is why she is claiming the land.“That land never belonged to Willie John Kennedy, it was owned by John Kennedy. That was a forced will,” she said.Barrister Peter Nolan put to Mrs Gildea she never worked the land but was only making claim to it after Willie John Kennedy died in 2007 and it was left to her daughter.“Are you seriously telling me that you had nine children under ten years of age and you worked the land as well. I put it to you that it was impossible to do that.“I suggest after Willie John died you got advise from some fireside lawyer that you had a right to this land and this is why you are here today,” said Mr Nolan.Christopher Gildea, 65, a brother of Mrs Kelly and son of Mrs Gildea, claimed he was only seeking grazing for his sheep despite looking to claim ownership of the entire parcel of land.He said he has been grazing his sheep on the land since 1971 and admitted he also owned and rented another 110 acres of land.Barrister Peter Nolan said “So what – you were grazing it? Does that entitle you to own the land?“You used the land for your now benefits and got free grazing and were very happy with that.“When Nora Kelly came along and said she wanted the land after getting an injunction you wrongly claimed it,” he said.James McMonagle, a son-in-law of Mrs Gildea, admitted he went onto lands where his mother-in-law had horses to feed the animals.He then claimed he was approached by members of the Kelly family who hit him with a torch.But barrister Peter Nolan replied “It was you who attacked Ms Fiona Kelly and scratched her in the face. It was you who threw her to the ground.“I put it to you that you are telling a pack of lies. You were on land that you should not have been on because there was an injunction against you going onto the land.”The case has been adjourned until today for summing up before Judge Mary Faherty when a decision is then expected.PENSIONER TELLS COURT NOT TO MENTION DAUGHTER’S NAME DURING FARM DISPUTE was last modified: November 15th, 2018 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:Christopher GlideaCOURT BATTLEDaniel GildeafarmNora Gildealast_img read more
