“Bogus” medical school administrator was ordered not to open school – Ministry source

first_imgThe administrator of the North Shore Medical College was instructed not to open her school until her registration was processed, a source from the Education Ministry disclosed.K Singh being escorted by Police after holding two students hostage for four hours“I was informed that the school’s registration was incomplete and they were supposed to wait until it was completed. She was told not to start teaching until everything was processed,” the source stated.Acting A (Georgetown-East Bank) Division Commander Marlon Chapman, when contacted, stated that the administrator, who goes by several names, remained in Police custody and the Police would be seeking legal advice on their next move. The woman, K Singh, had held two students hostage in a locked building after Police turned up to arrest her for allegedly ripping off hundreds of students. She had locked herself and the students in the upper flat of the school after scores of other students turned up and began pounding on the door, demanding refunds on the grounds she was operating a bogus medical institution.However, after four tense hours, the captive students were released and the Police managed to gain entry into the building by climbing through a widow to arrest her. She was escorted out of the compound by two Policewomen and one Policeman into a vehicle and taken to the Alberttown Police Station for questioning.In 2009, former Health Minister, Dr Leslie Ramsammy had accused Singh of operating a fake nursing school, called “Inter-American Nursing School”. He had stated that hundreds of students were scammed into releasing large sums of money to her. She was arrested and placed on bail. However, some time later, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) had recommended that no charges be laid against her.Four years later, another medical school surfaced—this time under the same woman. In 2014, another set of students took to the streets in protest against the woman and her school – insisting that they were being scammed. It was reported that Singh, who went by the name Gita Kissoon, never turned up to supervise their examination.In both instances, the Education Ministry and the Public Health Ministry were notified, but nothing was done to seriously address the matter. However, this time, Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton urged students to beware of offshore medical schools and to consult the Ministry before registering with them.One concerned parent had stated that she had a “calm assurance” that the school was accredited after she had enquired and found out that the Education Ministry was aware of the school’s presence.Students claimed that Singh would instruct them to mark their own test papers and promised to send the grades to the board overseas. “She keep talking about the board and board, but we keeping asking to see the board and we never hear from them or see any of them,” one frustrated student indicated.Singh was issued an eviction letter by the landlords of the building a month ago and had since changed the locks.last_img read more

President Weah Issues Proclamation for Legislature to Work for 7 Days

first_imgPresident George Manneh WeahPresident George M. Weah has finally issued a Proclamation of Extension for members of the House of Representatives and the Senate to reconvene in Special or Extraordinary Session for seven days, beginning Tuesday, December 3 through Tuesday, December 10, 2019 to discuss or act upon vital matters of national emergency and concern.While the President’s Proclamation did not elaborate on what the “vital matters of national emergency and concern” are, it is expected that the Legislature will once again be asked to deliberate on the Central Bank of Liberia’s (CBL) request for permission to print new banknotes. In its original request, the CBL requested permission to print L$34 billion, which would be used to replace the local currency currently in circulation.It is also expected that the Senate may hold confirmation hearing for the CBL’s new Executive Governor-designate, Mr. Jolue Aloysius Tarlue.According to some Legislators who support the printing of new currency, approval of the CBL’s request would ease pressure on civil servants who have been agitating for several months of salary arrears, especially as the Christmas season approaches.Currently there is a dire shortage of Liberian dollars in circulation and commercial banks have been overwhelmed by account holders wanting to withdraw cash.However, the General Auditing Commission, has warned the Legislature that, “giving your approval to print more currency is unfathomable, but will be very misplaced, granted we are yet to understand all what happened at the last currency printing, as evidently, the US$25 million mop-up exercise does not engender much confidence in the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL).”The issuance of the President’s Proclamation to recall the 54th Legislature from Annual Break is in consonance with  Article 32(b) of the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia which provides that the President shall, on his own initiative or upon receipt of a certificate signed by at least one fourth of the total membership of each House, and by proclamation, extend a regular session of the Legislature beyond the date for adjournment or call a special or extraordinary session of that body to discuss or act upon matters of national emergency and concern.According to the Proclamation, the President called a Special Session of the 54th Legislature in a letter dated November 4, 2019 to convene from November 18, 2019 to December 11, 2019 but, “due to unforeseen factors, the convening period of the Special Session of the 54th Legislature was adjusted to a period of one (1) working week; beginning December 3, 2019 to December 10, 2019,” the Proclamation said.The Proclamation, signed by President George Manneh Weah, reads: “WHEREAS, the Second Regular Session of the 54th Legislature of the Republic of Liberia adjourned sine die on the 31st day of August, 2019;“and WHEREAS, Article 32(b) of the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia provides that the President shall, on his own initiative or upon receipt of a certificate signed by at least one fourth of the total membership of each House, and by proclamation, extend a regular session of the Legislature beyond the date for adjournment or call a special or extraordinary session of that body to discuss or act upon matters of national emergency and concern;“and WHEREAS, in accordance with Article 32 (b) of the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia, the President has called a Special Session of the 54th Legislature in a letter dated November 4, 2019 to convene from November 18, 2019 to December 11, 2019, to discuss or act upon vital matters of national emergency and concern;“and WHEREAS, due to unforeseen factors, the convening period of the Special Session of the 54th Legislature has been adjusted to a period of one (1) working week; beginning December 3, 2019 to December 10, 2019, to discuss and act upon matters of national concern;“NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE M. WEAH, President of the Republic of Liberia, by virtue of the Authority in me vested, do hereby issue this Proclamation for the 54th Legislature to convene in a Special Session for a period of one (1) working week, beginning December 3, 2019 to December 10, 2019.“GIVEN UNDER MY HAND AND SEAL OF THE REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA, IN THE CITY OF MONROVIA, THIS 28TH DAY OF NOVEMBER, A.D. 2019, IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD, AND OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE REPUBLIC, THE 173RD.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Toroparu mining syndicate feels cheated by Govt

first_imgA mining syndicate developed for small miners in the Toroparu, Upper Mazaruni, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) feels that it has been treated unfairly by the Government, after an application for 10 mining blocks has been turned down.Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Toroparu Mining Syndicate, Melanie Beharry told Guyana Times on Wednesday that the Syndicate had initially applied for 29 blocks.Toroparu Mining Syndicate CEO Melanie BeharryShe said based on the rules established for syndicates, they were told that they could only apply for a minimum of 10 blocks. Three applications later, the Syndicate has been told that all the blocks it has applied for cannot be granted as they are all currently occupied.“Recently, we applied for 10 again, but we were told that it was given to a private individual. We find this strange, because during our meetings with the [Natural Resources Minister], Raphael Trotman and Simona Broomes [Minister within the Natural Resources Ministry], they emphasised that no one or two miners could apply for land in the closed area,” she explained.Beharry now claims that the Syndicate received news that the person who was given the blocks was given them based on special orders. “At least this is what was told to us by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) that a higher person instructed that,” she explained.Toroparu Mining Syndicate members are, therefore, upset and frustrated over the situation, because it has been a long while and several members had even plugged monies into building the area and creating linkages through roads they have spent money on constructing.According to the CEO, the GGMC has also informed her that the lone individual was granted the mining blocks, because he had applied months before the Syndicate sent its application.But Beharry told this newspaper that the Syndicate sent in its first application in March, while another application was made for lands that were vacant on the map. “It is only until recently that it was gazetted that land belongs to the individual,” she further added.The GGMC informed her that the individual’s application was accepted, because he applied since January and applications were dealt with on a first come, first served basis.“But my major concern is, it doesn’t matter who apply for it first, it matters that it’s one person. You are going to give one man who doesn’t even have dredge 20 blocks against a syndicate [of] 25 members.”Beharry said she planned to meet with the Ministers and see how best they could assist with finding available blocks for members to utilise, because they have their equipment stalled.In May this year, the National Mining Syndicate had said while it was appreciative of the efforts made by the administration to ensure that they have lands to mine, the process is being frustrated by several within the GGMC.Many miners are of the opinion that the Natural Resources Minister was not pushing for them to receive the lands with alacrity. President of the group, Renwick Solomon had said there was lack of “proper coordination” relative to dealing with the body of syndicates, which results in the beneficiaries being frustrated.“We would have applied for some land within the closed area, which has a closed area committee that deals with these lands. Thus far, the majority of syndicates that have applied for land were not granted the licence to operate in full compliance with Government regulations on these lands.”Solomon said the National Mining Syndicate has made its concern public many times, but nothing has been done thus far to alleviate the frustration.“This is a bread-and-butter issue. Many families are depending on us, and these decisions affect many lives. We expect this matter could be dealt with by the GGMC in a timely manner. Give it some sort of expedience. I know there is a system and rules by which to go by.”Solomon had said hundreds of dredges have been parked, and noted that small miners were obeying the law by not mining without permission from the GGMC.Mining syndicates were developed after the Natural Resources Ministers met with miners in January 2016. The decision was made to cluster small miners across the mining districts for them to benefit from concessions and support each other, something they were unable to achieve, mining on their own.last_img read more

Wayne Rooney WILL remain Manchester United captain, Jose Mourinho confirms

first_imgWayne Rooney will remain as Manchester United captain and Jose Mourinho cannot understand why so many question the forward’s capabilities.No longer the lung-busting striker that broke onto the scene as a teenager, the 30-year-old Rooney accepted in recent months that a future in midfield beckons.It was a role Rooney performed for England at Euro 2016 having ended the season there at United under Louis van Gaal, although successor Mourinho believes the Red Devils will get the best out him in attack.Those comments upon the Portuguese’s unveiling raised fresh questions about how best to utilise Rooney, but Mourinho has big plans and a lot of trust in his skipper.“I am quite surprised with so many question marks around this guy,” the United boss said at the team hotel in Shanghai.“I know that at the national team level you have this capacity of trying to make things complicated for yourself, so what happened around him in the summer was not a surprise for me.“But in my club we are not going to have that. He is the club captain, he is the manager’s captain, he is the players’ captain.“I trust him a lot. I think he’s going to be a very important player for me and no problem for him.“He knows that he has to work hard, he knows that but I think that is nothing new in his career. Everything he got I see nobody offer him, he had to fight for it.“With me it is not going to be different. But, yes, he is my captain.”Rooney’s position in the starting line-up may be in doubt, but his Old Trafford future never looked in jeopardy.The same cannot be said for some of his United team-mates, with speculation growing around a number of players as Mourinho shapes his squad.Juan Mata’s position has come under particular scrutiny having been sold by Chelsea when Mourinho was Blues manager in January 2014, but the Portuguese was keen to set the record straight and confirmed the Spain international has an Old Trafford future.“Well again it is a strange question because I don’t understand why he doesn’t have a future,” Mourinho said.“First of all, I think maybe all of you misunderstood what happened in our previous club because I never told Mata to leave. I never pressed the club to sell him.“It was his decision and only his decision and I don’t like players that want to leave.“That’s why I think every player has a price because if one day a player wants to leave it is because he does not want to be with us.“If the player doesn’t want to be with us, goodbye – be happy where you want to go.“Juan at our previous club was not so happy because he was not my first choice at that time. He wanted to play every game.“He had a fantastic offer from a big club like Man United, he wanted to leave. My previous club had a great offer, we thought that was financially very much acceptable.“We were not with this old-fashioned idea of ‘I don’t sell players to my direct competitors inside of my own country’. We sold him to Man United and done. Nothing else.“In this moment I arrive, he’s here, he works hard. He knows that I know he is a good player and he has space in the squad.“But again until the 31st of August the market is open for every one of my players that is not happy.“But, to be fair, I think he is. I think he is happy and I am not expecting him to ask to leave. I am expecting him to do what he is doing now, which is to fight for a place.“In the end there will be space for everyone, we have 38 matches in the Premier League, we expect to play a lot of them in the Europa League and domestic cups so a squad of let’s say 22 players there will be a space for everyone. So, yes, there is a space for Juan.” Wayne Rooney 1last_img read more

THE FUTURE OF WINDFARMS ACROSS CO DONEGAL TO BE DECIDED TOMORROW

first_imgTomorrow is D-Day for wind farm planning in Co Donegal.Tomorrow is d-day for windfarm planning across Donegal.Donegal County Council will convene a special council meeting of elected members at to consider and vote on Variation No.2 to the County Development Plan.The variation proposes a ten times turbine height set back distance from homes. At present there is no distance specified in the county development plan.The variation also proposes that Donegal County Council afford greater protection to the Fresh Water Pearl Mussel by de-zoning the river catchmentsA third part of the variation proposes changes that will lessen the protection afforded to Glenveagh National Park.As part of this process an unprecedented 3,326 submissions were received in response to the public consultation on the variations. The Glenties Windfarm Information Group (GWiG) has asked councillors should bear in mind certain points when voting.Firstly, out of the submissions received by Donegal County Council as a result of the Public Consultation on this variation, 98.3% of respondents stated that they approved of:1. The proposed 10 times turbine height set back distance and2. The de-zoning of the six river sub basin catchment areasThey disapproved of the proposed change to protections afforded to Glenveagh National Park. From reading the remaining submissions, 1.7%, the GWiG claim this small percentage is made up of people with vested interests in wind farming.“The Chief Executive Officer’s Report on the variation that was distributed to councillors discounts the vast majority of submissions – greater than 98% of the 3,326 – who support the proposals to grant greater protection to residential amenity by the establishment of a ten times turbine height setback from homes and centres of human habitation. His report also fails to accept that the Fresh Water Pearl Mussel (FWPM) sub-basin catchment areas protected in Irish and EU law should be designated as not favoured for wind farm development. Again this proposal has the support of more than 98% of submissions received.“It should be noted that what is being proposed in the variation is not a ban on windfarm development as is described in CEO’s report. The intention of the zoning in the six identified river catchments as ‘not favoured’ is intended to be interpreted as requiring a higher level of scrutiny for applications which may be made in these areas. It does not exclude development but it sets the onus of proof on the developer at a higher level, to prove there will be no negative impact.“As regards the setbacks, the CEO’s report indicates that the current status quo should be retained. It should be understood by the Councillor’s that there is currently no setback distance from homes, places of habitation etc, identified or provided for in the current Plan. It is also noteworthy that Donegal County Council themselves in their submission to the Department’s National Review of the Wind Energy Guidelines in January recommended that ten times the turbine tip height should be provided as a separation distance.“The CEO’s report and his recommendation are in conflict with the wishes of the elected members of Donegal County Council as this (ten times separation distance) is exactly what is proposed in the Variation that councillors will be asked to vote on. The need for this is brought sharply into focus by several major turbine accidents in the County in recent years, e.g. in Loughderryduff outside Ardara, Corkermore outside Ardara and in the Blue Stacks near Drimarone.“The people of Donegal have spoken like they have never spoken before during a public consultation process. They want protection for their families, their homes and their communities.“The ten times tip height and the six river basin parts of the variation provide some of that protection. These two parts will merely put a brake on the wind farm speculators who are currently creating another property type bubble/burst for their private gain.”GWIG states that these are important points that all councillors should bear in mind when voting on the three separate parts of the variation.* The submissions received during the Public Consultation reflect the wishes of the people of this County.* The County Development Plan is commonly referred to as, ‘The People’s Plan’.* Councillors are the people’s elected representatives.“Will their vote reflect the people’s wishes?” asked a spokesman.THE FUTURE OF WINDFARMS ACROSS CO DONEGAL TO BE DECIDED TOMORROW was last modified: June 29th, 2014 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:donegalDonegal County CouncilGWIGwindfarmslast_img read more

CAF Confederations Cup: KCCA FC eye perfect result at home to Paradou

first_imgKCCA FC dropped from the Champions League. (PHOTO/File)CAF Confederations Cup KCCA FC vs Paradou AC StarTimes Stadium, LugogoSunday, 27-10-2019 @4pmLUGOGO – KCCA FC will be hoping for a good result when they host Algerian side Paradou AC in the CAF Confederations Cup playoff round first leg on Sunday.The Kasasiros have had a trying Continental campaign so far and will be desperate to ensure they reach the group stages.Mike Mutebi’s side overcame African Stars in the Champions League first round and looked on course to a return to the lucrative group stages.However, they lost on away goals to Petro de Luanda in the playoff round and as a consequence, dropped into the Confederations Cup.Ahead of the first leg against Paradou, Mutebi is optimistic his side can get the job get done.“Having dropped out from Champions league, we are going to try to pullout all what we have to see that we negotiate this tie and go to the group stages and we have the capacity to do it and we have to win, said Mutebi.“They have experience, they play very well on the counter attacks, manage the ball so well but my boys too have enough experience having played more games on the continent despite being young.“We are ready to deal with that challenge, meaning we must match them in as far as using the ball is concerned.”KCCA FC will have Muzamir Mutyaba make a timely return from a lay off. Muzamir got injured in the club’s CAF Champions League qualifier against Petro De Luanda and has not played competitive football since. Left back Eric Ssenjobe is back as well and has been included on squad to play on Sunday while the match comes too early for Julius Poloto, Jurua Hassan, and Sadam Juma. The trio of John Odumegwu, John Revita, Keziron Kizito, and Erisa Sekisambu is ineligible.To get here, Paradou knocked out three time record champions CS Sfaxien of Tunisia 3-1 on aggregate to reach this stage after eliminating CI KAMSAR of Guinea by 3-1 on aggregate in the first round.They will not be a walk in the park for KCCA FC but are yet to score a goal on their travels.Paradou who are not doing well in Algeria Topflight league, will rely on Yousir Bouzok and Abdelkadir Ghorab who are their leading goal scorers in the tournament so far.Hamza Mouali one of the goal scores against Sfaxien will also be key in defense not forgetting the young midfilder Hichman Boudoaui the only local based player in the Algerian Squad that won the famous African cup of nation in July this year.The second leg between the two sides will be played on November 3rd in Algeria where the winner on aggregate will reach the group stages.Comments Tags: CAF Champions LeagueCAF Confederations CupKCCA FCMike MutebiParadou AClast_img read more

Man suspected of sending hate mail to missing Mary Boyle mum dies

first_imgA man suspected of sending hate mail to the mother of missing Mary Boyle has died.The man was due to be charged by Gardai in connection with the hurtful letters which were sent to Ann Boyle at her home in West Donegal.The development was broadcast by RTE last night as part of its Prime Time Revisited Programme. A documentary examining the disappearance of the young girl 40 years ago in Cashelard outside Ballyshannon was broadcast in March last year.The programme was repeated last night.At the end of the broadcast, a televised message said the case into the missing child was still ongoing.The statement read “Since this programme was first broadcast (in 2017) Gardai have followed up a number of new lines of enquiry. “A man who was suspected of posting hateful letters to Ann Boyle died before he could be charged.”In the documentary, Ann Boyle speaks of her hurt at being sent the hate mail to her home.One of the letters even pretended that it had been written by missing Mary.A protest recently held outside the county coroner’s surgery at Millbrae in Stranorlar called for Dr Denis McCauley to hold a post-mortem into missing Mary.Man suspected of sending hate mail to missing Mary Boyle mum dies was last modified: March 30th, 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:Ann BoyleGardailettersMARY BOYLEmissingprime timeRTElast_img read more
