Amara Konneh Raps on AfT

first_imgFinance Minister Amara Konneh has observed that the economic transformation pillar of the Agenda for Transformation (AfT) remains the lynchpin for the country’s drive toward transformation and inclusive growth. According to Minister Konneh, government’s interventions in economic transformation, a pillar in the AfT, have focused on formulating policies and programs that create an enabling environment for private sector participation and expansion in sectors such as agriculture and manufacturing.Mr. Konneh made these assertions over the weekend at the Steering Committee Meeting of the Liberia Development Alliance (LDA) in Buchanan City, Grand Bassa Copunty. It was during the LDA’s Steering Committee Meeting that the government of Liberia presented a progress report on the first year performance of the AfT.The ceremony was a self-assessment program by the government to grade its performance on projects it pledged to implement in the first year of the AfT. The AfT itself is the government’s five-year development strategy which follows the Lift Liberia Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS) and is the first step in achieving the goals set out in Liberia’s long-term vision of socio-economic transformation and development. About 100 heads of ministries, agencies and commissions along with development partners, private sector actors and civil society stakeholders attended the meeting which discussed the one year implementation progress report that was presented for the Committee’s review and acceptance.The AfT is structured along five pillars (Peace, Security & Rule of Law, Economic Transformation, Governance & Public Institutions, Human Development and Cross-cutting Issues).In his opening remarks, Minister Konneh noted that the government is providing an appropriate legal and regulatory framework appropriating tax and royalty revenues from concessions to finance electric power and transport infrastructure, education and training, and other inputs needed to bolster the private sector. He indicated that the government has also taken a bold initiative to engage major stakeholders to identify and remove bottlenecks in the economy.Mr. Konneh, who also chairs the LDA, explained that the government through the Liberia Business Registry (LBR),has driven the process of enterprise formalization by streamlining the business registration process and reducing the number of days taken to register a business. “As a result of the automation of the business registration processes in Liberia,“ he declared “a total of 7,459 new businesses were registered in the period, 94% of them  Liberian-owned.“ Over the period, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI), in collaboration with the International Standards Organization (ISO), successfully tested theNational Satndard Laboratory‘s (NSL) instrument calibrations to ensure that the degree of accuracy of its precision instruments, gauges and scientific apparatus are consistent with international standards, Konneh declared. According to him, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) were drafted for four commodities on the market, names not given, and that the National Investment Commission (NIC) is finalizing the Private Sector Development Strategy (PSDS).“A gap analysis was completed along with relevant stakeholders and a review of the entire value chain has been completed. The preparation of the report for the finalization of the strategy is currently ongoing.“The LDA boss noted a local content policy to facilitate the creation of new linkages, deepen and expand existing programs between foreign companies and SMEs is also being developed and that research into local procurement, local content, business linkage has been conducted and a technical working group has also been established. Toward this end, he said the working group established to develop the local content policy identified four priority sectors for the local content policy: Agriculture, Mining, Oil & Gas, and Infrastructure.The performance of the each of the five pillars of the AfT: peace, security and rule of law (PSRL), economic transformation (ET), human development (HD), governance and public institutions (GPI) and cross cutting issues (CCI) were graded . Under the PSRL, the total of 169 interventions were earmarked, but only 76 interventions were made in year one with 52 completed totalling 68%. This sector had a total strategic objectives of 17 and is considerd the best performer. The ET sector recorded total interventions of 323 with 47 interventions in year one, 26 completed and scored 55%. This sector’s total strategic obsjectives are 32.  The HD sector’s total strategic objectives are 17, total interventions 191 required, year one interventions 29 and total completed is 16, which amounts to 55%. The GPI sector’s strategic objectives were 27; total interventions 204; total interventions in year one 58; with 21 completed and score 36%. In the CCI sector, a total of 85 strategic objectives were set, 394 total interventions identified, with 67 interventions made in year one and 32 completed at the rate of 48%; thus making the total completion rate of the AfT in year one to 53%.Finance Minister Konneh noted that the 53% completion rate of the AfT clearly indicates the need for sector heads to coordinate their activities.President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf thanked Minister Konneh for the presentation. The Liberian leader also sthanked pillar chairs for the gains being recorded as she acknowledged the support of development partners for their continuing supports to the country‘s ambitious development agenda encapsulated in the AfT.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Daughter of murdered businesswoman testifies

first_imgAtlantic Gardens murder– recalls defendant gunning down motherRomona Sanasie, the daughter of murdered Atlantic Gardens’ businesswoman Patricia Sanasie, testified before a 12-member jury on Tuesday that she put her hand to a hole in her mother’s neck in a bid to stop her from bleeding to death on the night of her demise on January 12, 2015.Richard Stanton as he appeared in 2015Richard Stanton, formerly of Princes Street, Lodge, Georgetown, is accused of executing 43-year old Patricia Sanasie at her East Coast Demerara home.In giving her evidence-in-chief for over three hours, Romona Sanasaie told the court via Skype that on April 25, 2015, she picked out “suspect number three” from an Identification (ID) Parade that brought back a rush of “fear and emotions” and “flashbacks” to that fateful night when her mother was gunned down.Now residing in the United States, she told the jury that she started at number nine and first stopped at seven but as she continued, she realised that it was indeed number three who was the man she saw pulling the trigger.After leaving a few times from the room and even vomiting, she recalled that she requested that the man she identified turn to the side and from that angle, she recognised him from his features.These, she explained, were big built, five feet, seven or eight inches, fat stomach, fat face, high cheek bones and dark in complexion. The star witness told the court that she saw his body for 15-20 seconds and saw his face “full frontal” for about 10 seconds.Detailing the events that surrounded her mother’s death, the woman noted that earlier in the day of January 15, 2015, her mother drove her to a temple at Timehri, East Bank Demerara (EBD) to take part in a religious function.However, the still shaken daughter said she was prevented from entering the area and she stayed in the car. She told the jury that when her mother returned, she, Ramona, drove the car and her mother was the front seat passenger.Together, they left Timehri and headed back home at 17:45h.Upon reaching home, her mother exited the vehicle and was fumbling with her keys to open the gate. The younger Sanasie said her car lights were on – both inside and outside – while adding that that there was a street light on a post eight to 10 feet away.She said moments after they arrived at the residence, a silver grey Toyota Raum pulled up behind them and a man came out and passed her sitting in the car.The witness added, in detail, that the assailant looked at her but did not shoot right away. She added that her mother was bent over still trying to open the padlock.“Two seconds after she looked up in shock with her mouth open. Then she looked back at me and then to him and then he started to shoot. He shot one after the next and she made two steps backwards and fell to the ground. He was shooting with the right hand,” Sanasie explained to the court.She said the vehicle reversed and the shooter jumped in the backseat of the vehicle before it drove off. She explained that the shooter was wearing a due rag on his head and a sheer cloth over his face which she said she saw after light from her car shone on him.Trying to stop the bleeding, she said she screamed out and neighbours assisted her in transporting her mother to hospital where she was pronounced dead. Sanasie recalled later identifying the body which was handed over and shipped to New York where her mother was cremated.At Monday’s trial, the 12-member jury was informed that the defendant was charged three months later, in April 2015, and that he remained silent when investigators at Golden Grove Police Station, EBD accused him of murder.Stanton is being represented by Attorney Mark Waldron while Tiffini Lyken, Narisa Leander and Seeta Bishundial are presenting the case on behalf of the State. The case continues before Justice Brassington Reynolds today.last_img read more

Deputy Solicitor General fired over Attorney General’s vendatta

first_img…denied due process…handed termination letter 6 hours before PSC life endedThe Public Service Commission (PSC), with a mere six hours remaining before its term expired, terminated the services of Deputy Solicitor Prithima Kissoon, after arrogating on itself the powers of the President to invoke a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) later used as the basis for her dismissal.This course of action was taken despite the PSC never pronouncing on the complaints filed against Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams.The revelations have been made public by Kissoon, who in a chronology of events shared with Guyana Times, said she remained silent throughout the ordeal since her complaint against Williams to the PSC, because public servants are prohibited from making comments in the public domain, but now that she has been dismissed “this shackle is removed”.The very public spat between the Attorney General and his Deputy Solicitor had made the news in recent months, but came to a finale on August 31, 2017. Exactly six hours before the life of the PSC came to an end at midnight on August 31, 2017, Kissoon was served with a dismissal letter at 18:00h at her residence by the Personal Assistant of the Attorney General, Andrea Marks. This was subsequently followed by an official dismissal letter on the letterhead of the PSC.Lamenting the situation, the now former Deputy Solicitor General in her now public statement said a new PSC would convene and the complaint by her against the Attorney General would never have been addressed.According to Kissoon, “my good name has been filched, my character assassinated, my career that I worked so hard to build in the public service for the past 10 years lays shattered at my feet, but my integrity and ethics are rock solid.”Kissoon had her services terminated purportedly at the recommendation of ‘an illegal’ CoI that had been set up by the PSC.According to the now former Deputy Solicitor General, “realising that the life of the PSC was about to expire, the PSC acted arbitrarily and ultra vires its powers when it purportedly appointed a Commission of Inquiry…It is only the President who can appoint a CoI, which must be duly gazetted and follow the rules of the procedures under the Commission of Inquiry Act Chapter 19:03.”She said this unlawful CoI was constituted with indecent haste on August 18, 2017, and issued a summons on August 21, 2017, for Kissoon to appear before it on August 23, 2017, and the PSC came out with the verdict of dismissal on August 31.Kissoon was sent on leave earlier this year with the permission of the PSC, but had later found that the Legal Affairs Ministry Permanent Secretary objected to her leaving the country while on leave and a decision was taken to withhold her salary.The debacle came to the public’s attention in January 2017 when Kissoon lodged a formal complaint to the PSC against the Attorney General.She said Attorney General Williams “had visited upon her harassment, verbal abuse and had effectively prohibited her from performing her duties all in an effort to oust her from her post as the Deputy Solicitor General, whether by lawful or unlawful means, and was seeking their intervention and a remedy against the conduct of Mr Basil Williams SC, the Attorney General”.She was informed in March 2017 by the PSC that she should proceed on administrative leave with immediate effect, pending the outcome of investigations into several court matters that she had conduct of.The AG had launched a probe into cases which Deputy Solicitor General Kissoon was involved in, following a ruling handed down by the Court of Appeal, dismissing a State-sponsored appeal against a High Court decision that quashed a private criminal charge against Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo.The Appeal Court ruled that the appeal was null after Kissoon had conceded to a claim by Jagdeo’s lawyer that the Attorney General was not a proper party to the proceeding.AG Williams has since blamed Kissoon for the outcome of the case.However, although he has blamed Kissoon for the loss, Solicitor General Sita Ramlall, in a letter to the editor, had pointed out that Williams had insisted to Kissoon and herself, that he be named as the plaintiff in the appeal when he was not a party.last_img read more

Sterling sends City eight points clear, Sanchez lifts Arsenal

first_imgPep Guardiola’s side equalised through a Sergio Aguero penalty in the second half before Sterling’s lucky 84th-minute winner sealed their 11th successive league victory.City’s gritty success reopened their advantage over second-placed Manchester United, who had temporarily closed the gap with a 1-0 win against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.“The Premier League is so tough, now winter has come. We knew they were so aggressive so strong, but we are so happy for the way we won,” Guardiola said.“It is impossible to win every game easily. The guys competed amazingly.”The leaders had controlled the first half yet found themselves behind in stoppage-time when a Tom Ince corner hit Otamendi on the shoulder and flashed into the net.Guardiola’s men gave an impressive response to that shock setback as they equalised two minutes after the interval.Sterling was fouled by Scott Malone and Aguero drilled in the spot-kick for his 11th goal of the season.City pressed for a winner, with Leroy Sane hitting the bar and Fernandinho booked for diving in the penalty area after a challenge from Rajiv van La Parra.They finally got the victory their dominance deserved late on, but the goal was fortunate in the extreme.Arsenal’s Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring a penalty during the English Premier League match between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf Moor in Burnley on November 26, 2017 © AFP / PAUL ELLISHuddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl blocked from City’s Gabriel Jesus inside the penalty area.But the rebound hit Sterling and bounced over the line for his 12th goal of the season — and his second winner this week after his decisive strike against Feyenoord in the Champions League.At Turf Moor, Arsene Wenger’s side looked set for a frustrating draw as they entered stoppage-time, but they snatched the points when James Tarkowski was ruled to have pushed Aaron Ramsey.Sanchez held his nerve to slot home the dramatic late penalty and moments later Arsenal were celebrating a 1-0 win that lifted them into fourth place in the Premier League.“From outside it (the penalty) looked 100 percent. I don’t know why he pushed him in the back. I would like to see it again,” Wenger said.“In the first half we didn’t find our game. Burnley defend extremely well and are very dangerous on the direct game.”Burnley boss Sean Dyche fumed: “There’s a lot of me inside that’s raging a lot.“It was highly unlikely it wasn’t going to get given on a day like today, that’s all I’ll say.”– Miserable Everton –Southampton’s Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (right) vies with Everton’s Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson during their English Premier League match in Southampton on November 26, 2017 © AFP / Glyn KIRKWithout Mesut Ozil, who was ruled out due to illness, Arsenal struggled to break down Burnley.But Chile forward Sanchez stepped up to seal Arsenal’s second successive league win with his fourth club goal of the season.At St Mary’s, Everton’s miserable season hit another low as Southampton romped to a 4-1 win — giving caretaker boss David Unsworth a fifth defeat in his seven matches in charge following Ronald Koeman’s sacking.Everton, linked with a move for Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill, are now just two points above the relegation zone.“I cannot stand here and defend them, it was an unacceptable performance, the fans will be furious and so am I. It’s not good enough,” Unsworth said.Having hit just nine goals in their previous 12 league games, Southampton took advantage of woeful Everton defending to win for the first time in four league matches.Dusan Tadic put Saints ahead in the 18th minute when he beat Phil Jagielka to Ryan Bertrand’s pass and held off the England international before guiding the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised for Everton on the stroke of half-time, the Iceland midfielder cleverly working space for a superb 25-yard strike that went in off the crossbar.But Charlie Austin sunk Everton with two second half headers and Steven Davis got Southampton’s fourth late on.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling (3rd R) goes through to score the winning goal during their match against Huddersfield Town in Huddersfield, northern England on November 26, 2017 © AFP / Oli SCARFFLondon, United Kingdom, Nov 26 – Manchester City restored their eight-point lead in the Premier League after Raheem Sterling’s late goal clinched a 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town, while Alexis Sanchez gave Arsenal victory at Burnley on Sunday.City have swept aside all comers this season, but they found themselves in the unusual position of trailing at half-time after Nicolas Otamendi’s own goal at the John Smith’s Stadium.last_img read more

Liverpool are the ‘lucky ones’ moans Mourinho

first_imgBut Mourinho points to perceived good fortune enjoyed by Liverpool in recent victories over Everton, Bournemouth and Napoli as evidence they have lady luck on their side as they challenge for their first championship since 1990.“Of course, they are very confident about themselves,” Mourinho told reporters. “They are top of the league, they have this feeling of – I know that feeling well – the feeling of the lucky ones where everything goes in your direction.“They know how they beat Everton, they know that the last match, the opening goal was offside, and they know that against Napoli in the last seconds they could be out.“They have this feeling that I also had when my teams were top of the league and it looks like everything goes in your direction.”Klopp’s side certainly benefitted from a stroke of luck when a defensive error gifted them a stoppage-time victory in the Merseyside derby, although a clearly offside opening goal by Mohamed Salah at Bournemouth was only the first of four scored by the rampant Reds.And, while the midweek victory over Napoli was only confirmed when Alisson made a spectacular late save, the success carried last season’s Champions League runners-up through to the last 16 and has further raised the mood of optimism around Anfield.– Weaknesses –Not that Mourinho expects his rivals to take inconsistent United lightly when they meet.“I think they are obviously very, very confident. But I think they are not stupid,” he said.“They also know that we have our weaknesses, our strengths, and I think they will respect our strengths. I think if they don’t do that I will be happy with that.“They know that they need every point if they want to be champions so I think they are professionals and being professional is respecting Manchester United. They know that we can go there and win.”Mourinho, meanwhile, claims he does not yet know if he will have money to spend in the January transfer window which opens in barely two weeks’ time.Unsourced reports have claimed repeatedly in recent months that the United manager has been frustrated at the lack of backing he has received from his club’s owners in the transfer market.Last January, the window proved a busy one for Mourinho, as he completed the signing of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.And, although that particular transfer has yet to prove a success, the Portuguese manager is clearly keen to do some more business next month.“I don’t know. I don’t know if we are going to have new players – I would like to – but I don’t know if it is possible or not,” he said.“It depends on the club. I don’t know and, honestly, I’m focused on my job of playing Liverpool and next week playing Cardiff.”Mourinho insisted he is not concerned by the obvious lack of progress being made by his club in his two and a half years in charge.“I’m not frustrated because my work is to demand from players that they give everything they have and what I demand – I only demand things that I can give myself,” he said.“So what I ask the players to do – that’s what I do. You have to work hard, you have to work on your limits. It’s my job.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Jose Mourinho has labelled Liverpool the “lucky ones” © AFP / JOSE JORDANMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Dec 16 – Jose Mourinho has claimed Liverpool are “the lucky ones” as they bid to end a wait of nearly three decades to win the English league title.Mourinho and his Manchester United side visit Anfield on Sunday with Liverpool 16 points ahead of their bitter rivals.last_img read more

MacLOCHLAINN ON SIX-ONE NEWS: CALLS FOR A ‘NO’ VOTE ON REFERENDUM

first_imgDonegal North East Sinn Féin TD, Pádraig MacLochlainn has called on people to vote ‘No’ in the forthcoming referendum on the latest EU treaty.Speaking on the RTE Six One News this evening Deputy MacLochlainn refuted the Government plan had to be backed to save Ireland from further economic woes.Said MacLochlainn: “I heard him (Enda Kenny) talking about jobs. We heard him say the same thing at Lisbon 2. The problem is that there is no solution to the economic crisis. None of that is tackled. “This is about Germany and satisfying their narrative. They (the people here) will have to cleansed by a decade of sin and austerity. We are taking it to a whole new level.”He said the treaty was part of “bully boy tactics”.Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin, who campaigned for a referendum, called for a ‘Yes’ vote saying it was a ‘reasonable’ treaty.He denied he had changed his mind on the treaty. Deputy MacLochlainn was also tackled on Aengus O Snodaigh’s explanation for claiming computer print cartridges to the value of €50,000 in just two years from the Dail.The Dublin South Central TD claimed three cartridges for every sitting day in 2007 — 215 cartridges for the 76 days that the Dail sat. He could have sent over 3.25million letters for that amount of ink.The Buncrana politician said his colleague was being accused of working extremely hard for his constituents by providing them with literature on a range of issues.He said Fianna Fail was “brass-necked” in calling for an inquiry.“It was probably too much and if lessons have to be learned, they will be learned,” said MacLochlainn. © 2012 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily MacLOCHLAINN ON SIX-ONE NEWS: CALLS FOR A ‘NO’ VOTE ON REFERENDUM was last modified: February 28th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:MacLOCHLAINN ON SIX-ONE NEWS: CALLS FOR A ‘NO’ VOTE ON REFERENDUMlast_img read more
