OPINION ON SABLE MINING SCANDAL

first_imgGLOBAL, the Liberian public interest group, empowered to change the social and economic conditions in Liberia for the greater good, today releases its opinion on the Sable Mining scandal in Liberia.GLOBAL is calling for the immediate resignation of Alex J. Tyler, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Grand Cape Mount County Senator Varney Sherman. The People of Liberia deserve to be represented by individuals who can offer their full attention to solving their problems, says Global. The group considers corruption in Liberia as synonymous with Ebola due to its crippling socioeconomic effect. Moreover, evidence shows poverty invites corruption while corruption tends to deepen the effects of poverty. Evidence also shows corruption discourages foreign direct investment and bilateral aid to developing countries. Therefore, Liberians must remain vigilant in standing up against corrupt public servants if we are to eradicate abject poverty in our nation, said GLOBAL.Liberia’s legal system is best known for cloning the functions of statutory organs established by law. The alleged bribery incident does not need a special presidential taskforce. Liberia has an Anti-Corruption Commission and a Justice Ministry that are empowered by legislation to investigate and prosecute corruption cases. However, we are compelled to say that the Johnson-Sirleaf’s administration is best known for establishing ineffective commissions of inquiry to investigate well-documented cases with no compelling history of successful prosecution, GLOBAL charged.Moreover, the composition of the Presidential Task Force creates worrying doubts of success judging it is led by an individual convicted of felony charges in the United States. Be as it may, GLOBAL is urging the government of Liberia to expand the Task Force by inviting civil society organizations and others to join the Task Force. An expanded task force will create more transparency and accountability, thus allowing the Liberian people to have confidence in the justice system.Criminal Court A subpoenaed four financial institutions to produce bank statements of United States dollar accounts belonging to several public officials. However, one of the recipients of Sable Mining’s corrupt largesse, who happens to be the son of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Director of the National Security Agency, Mr. Fumba Sirleaf, was never mentioned in the subpoena. GLOBAL is calling on the task force to look into this matter.Global is appealing to fellow Liberians to allow the justice system to carry out its legal functions. “We believe this case will lead to more investigations into corruption and economic sabotage by government officials. Additionally, we are demanding investigations of the General Auditing Commission, the National Oil Company of Liberia, the National Security Agency, and the John F Kennedy Medical Center. Finally, we challenge our citizens to remain vigilant and continue to follow this investigation without taking sides. GLOBAL is asking Liberians to stop accepting money or “cold water” from shady characters as payment for staging fraudulent demonstrations in their behalf. This behavior is unethical and corrupt.GLOBAL stands against corruption and supports the rule of law in Liberia. We are of the conviction that nobody should be above the Rule of Law since selective justice has the tendency to start chaos which is replete in Liberia’s history.Again, GLOBAL is calling for the immediate resignation of Speaker Tyler and Senator Sherman and an investigation into Fumba Sirleaf’s participation in the alleged bribery case.“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” – Elie WieselShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Gold miner remanded for narcotics

first_imgShawn Samuels was on Thursday arraigned before Georgetown Magistrate Faith McGusty on charges of possessing fifty-five (55) grams of cannabis and five grams of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking, on July 31, 2017 at Mowasie Landing in the Essequibo River in the Potaro-Siparuni district of Region Eight.Represented by Attorney-at-Law Paul Fung-A-Fat, the 46-year-old father of nine pleaded not guilty as charged, and the attorney sought to have his client placed on bail on ground of existing special circumstances, in that there is overcrowding in the Prison.Moreover, the lawyer contended that the drugs were not discovered on the person of his client, thus possession or ownership cannot be attributed to him.Fung-A-Fatt said the drugs were discovered in a workshop which houses the businessman’s mining equipment, reportedly concealed in a motorbike.He also argued that the workshop, unused for five months, had been broken into, thereby allowing access to any person who could’ve been the real owner of the illegal substances.However, Prosecutor Steven Telford, disputing the lawyer’s contentions, related that the drugs were found in the presence of the defendant, and were not concealed in a motorcycle, as argued by the defence.The prosecutor said the defendant had also allegedly confessed to ownership of the narcotics in a caution statement provided to Police officers.Magistrate McGusty, addressing the lawyer, said, “There is space now (in the prisons); they are welcoming all.”She added that there exists accommodation respectively at the Lusignan, Camp Street and Timehri penitentiaries, and she remanded the defendant to prison until his case comes up for recall on August 7, 2017.last_img read more

Balotelli urges Milan to sign Man United and Arsenal target… who plays for Inter

first_img1 Former Liverpool and Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli has urged AC Milan to snap up Mauro Icardi, who is a target for both Manchester United and Arsenal.The two English clubs are among those heavily linked with the 24-year-old hotshot, who has scored 33 goals in his last 42 Serie A games.He hit the headlines once again this weekend when he scored a superb hat-trick to secure Inter’s dramatic 3-2 win over arch rivals AC Milan at the San Siro.Icardi has a minimum fee release clause set at £100m for non-Italian clubs and it has been suggested that he could be on the move within the next 12 months.But now Nice striker Balotelli, who himself has played for both Milan clubs during his colourful career, has advised his old club AC to launch an audacious bid for Icardi.“He’s a true ‘bomber’,” Balotelli wrote on Instagram. “Maybe Milan will wake up and buy him!” Mauro Icardi scored a hat-trick in Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina last_img read more

Chelsea are miles away from Premier League title challenge, says ex-Blue

first_img getty “There are a number of problems, for me.“We need another centre-half, two full-backs and definitely, 100 per cent, a striker.“Chelsea are four or five players off, I think, from even getting anywhere near the title.” 3 Chelsea welcome the league leaders to Stamford Bridge on Saturday night in a game which a few weeks ago would have proved pivotal in the title race.The Blues started the season in great form, keeping pace with City and fellow challengers Liverpool by going the first 12 games unbeaten.But their form has fallen by the wayside in recent weeks, slipping to defeats to Tottenham and Wolves, which have left them in fourth place and a full ten points adrift of City.MORE: ‘Chelsea will drop out of the top-four if Maurizio Sarri doesn’t change his failing team’And Cundy believes the recent results have highlighted just how much the Blues squad needs a makeover.Asked if Chelsea still have a chance of winning the title this season, Cundy told Friday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “No chance. Not a prayer.“There is absolutely no way that Chelsea are going to get anywhere near Manchester City. Maurizio Sarri has been highly critical of his team’s recent performances Chelsea are miles away from being able to compete for the Premier League title, according to Jason Cundy.The talkSPORT host and ex-Blues player says Maurizio Sarri is ‘four of five players away’ from having a team capable of challenging Manchester City for the crown. 3 Chelsea suffered their first league defeat of the season against Spurs at Wembley 3 On-fire Man City will take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s 5:30pm game Cundy is not expecting three points when Pep Guardiola’s side visit the Bridge on Saturday evening, either.“You’ve got to go with City haven’t you,” he added.“Man City have the players to really hurt Chelsea and Chelsea’s form is a little bit of a concern.“Having said that, if Chelsea perform to the level that we can we’ll make a game of it, but you’ve got to fancy City.”Listen back to Jason Cundy on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast IN FULL abovelast_img read more

Justice Department Raises Doubt on Gene Patents

first_imgThe legal battle over gene patents took a surprising twist on Friday when the U.S. Department of Justice issued a brief saying that the breast cancer genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 should never have been patented. The reason, Justice says in an amicus curiae document, is that isolating these genes did not amount to an invention. “Genomic DNA that has merely been isolated from the human body, without further alteration or manipulation, is not patent-eligible,” according to the brief, because it is like coal taken from the ground: Indeed, the relationship between a naturally occurring nucleotide sequence and the molecule it expresses in a human cell-that is, the relationship between genotype and phenotype-is simply a law of nature. The chemical structure of native human genes is a product of nature, and it is no less a product of nature when that structure is “isolated” from its natural environment than are cotton fibers that have been separated from cotton seeds or coal that has been extracted from the earth. This line of reasoning, filed in connection with a case now under review by the U.S Court of Appeals, echoes an argument made by opponents of gene patenting, made by the Public Patent Foundation (PubPat) and the American Civil Liberties Union of New York City. They sued the U.S Patent and Trademark Office and Myriad Genetics of Salt Lake City over Myriad’s ownership of more than a dozen patents on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, data which the company uses to test people for breast cancer risks. In March, a U.S. district court in New York agreed with PubPat and its allies that key Myriad patents are invalid because “isolated DNA” is a product of nature and not an invention.

Biotechnology Industry Organization President and CEO Jim Greenwood said in a prepared statement today that the Justice brief is “inconsistent with the position” the U.S. government has taken at home and abroad for more than 2 decades. Greenwood warned of many consequences: “If adopted, the Justice Department’s position would undermine U.S. global leadership and investment in the life sciences, harm U.S. economic growth and competitiveness at home and abroad, and be counterproductive to the Administration’s own initiatives to fight cancer, develop renewable sources of energy,” and other objectives. Other independent reports, including one in The New York Times and a scathing review by Washington, D.C., patent attorney Kevin Noonan, have said that Justice’s new policy represents a break with the past. Noonan, for example, writes that the amicus brief “advocates a change in policy” whose authors “exhibit little evident background in science, technology, or patent law.” It is, he says, “disturbing as well as contrary to sound patent policy.” Others saw the Justice statement as less radical. It really is “not all that far-reaching, despite the rhetoric,” said Robert Cook-Deegan, an expert on genetics and patents at Duke University’s Center for Genome Ethics, Law and Policy in Durham, North Carolina. He commented by e-mail that, “for most companies, even in biotech, implementation of the [Justice] position would matter very little.” Cook-Deegan argues few biotech companies go to court to enforce claims on naturally occurring DNA sequences. And many of the younger firms, he argues, want fewer legal fences around genes because they are trying to create and market whole-genome technologies that use thousands of genes. Cook-Deegan notes that the Justice Department brief differs from the New York court’s decision in an important respect. It argues that some DNA-based patents should be kept intact—those that, in Justice’s view, clearly required human ingenuity. For example, Cook-Deegan says, Justice’s policy would not rule out patents on complementary DNA in therapeutic molecules, nor would it block patents on DNA-based vectors for therapy. PubPat’s founder and chief, Daniel Ravicher, says the Justice Department’s amicus brief is “good news for us.” He only wishes it had gone even further and adopted PubPat’s argument—that no patents at all should be granted on isolated DNA.last_img read more

Stan Wawrinka believes Roger Federer is on course to become oldest world number one in tennis history

first_imgRoger Federer’s comeback from injury has been so successful that his compatriot Stan Wawrinka believes he can become the oldest world number one in history at the age of 35. (I have totally exceeded my expectations, says Roger Federer post Indian Wells triumph)Federer beat Wawrinka in the final of Indian Wells on Sunday for his second win of the year following his triumph in the Australian Open – his 18th grand slam title and his first in four and a half years.Those wins have propelled the Swiss master to sixth in the world as he makes excellent progress aftera six-month layoff caused by a knee injury.Compatriot Wawrinka believes that not only is Federer back in form but he is playing in a noticeably different manner that gives him a chance to return to the pinnacle of the rankings.”He’s playing really well, what is different maybe is he is playing closer from the baseline, preferring, using less his slice, he is using more top spin, putting more pressure all the time, returning better that’s the difference I seem,” Wawrinka said yesterday at the Miami Open.”For sure he has a shot for number one, he has just won the first Masters final. For sure he has a big shot,” he told reporters.Andre Agassi holds the record for being the oldest player to hold the men’s No.1 ranking, at the age of 33.”It is going to be interesting to see. Rafa (Nadal) is playing well also and we will see when Novak (Djokovic) and Andy (Murray) are back from injury, it is going to be really interesting for tennis fans,” Wawrinka said.advertisement’Nothing is a surprise’Wawrinka said it wasn’t a shock to see Federer, who now has 90 career titles, back to such form but that he was particularly impressed by his movement.”From him nothing is a surprise, but for sure to see him moving that well at that age it is something amazing. It is good for me to see that you can be at the top (at that age).It is amazing to see how he is playing after a six-month injury.last_img read more
