first_imgA 15-year deal on the ratification of the extended and restated Agency Agreement between the Liberian government and the Liberia International Ship and Corporate Registry (LISCR, LLC) has been approved by the House of Representatives and sent to the Liberian Senate for concurrence.The lawmakers overwhelmingly passed the bill yesterday.The ratification and extension was amended owing to a communication from House Chairman on the Maritime Committee, Rep. Thomas Fallah, who is also the Chairman of the House Joint Committee on Maritime, Ways, Means and Finance and Judiciary, arguing that the agreement offers future improvement of services for the purpose of enhancing the viability and profits of the Liberian Maritime industry.In his communication to Speaker Tyler and his colleagues in defense of the passage of the bill, Rep. Fallah gave five prime benefits of the Agreement, including the provision of an enabling business environment for Liberia Maritime Sector and the relief of government’s revenue spending on rental for far more productive development programs in other areas of the postwar reconstruction process.Another benefit of the agreement is the creation of considerable stimuli for Liberia’s overall socio-economic development, considering the current status and the multiple effects of Maritime activities within a short period of time.“The Extended and Restated Agency agreement will also seek to produce a pool of qualified manpower through the regular training program of the Academy (LIMTI) with a vested interest in preserving the efficiency and proficiency of government as masters and agents of their own maritime industry,” Rep. Fallah advocated.He added: “the agreement when implemented would seek to strengthen partnerships with some of the world renowned shipping registries if Liberia’s maritime industry is capable of sustaining itself and expanding in some activities of our maritime industry.”The House approved the LISCR deal from 2014 – 2029, with the country gaining 67% of the net program revenues, while LISCR gets 33%.It may be recalled that last Friday during the LISCR-Liberia Public Hearing on the extended and restated Agency Agreement, Cllr. David Jallah, the General Counsel and Vice President of the University of Liberia, said the proposed 33 per cent of the net program revenues for LISCR should be reduced considering the fact that the Agent (LISCR) almost exclusively manages the affairs of the program.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe embattled Associate Justice, Kabineh Ja’nehAbout 200 lawyers have threatened to begin a week-long boycott of the courts, from next month (September), in protest against what they claim is disobedience by lawmakers from the Lower House to honor the Supreme Court’s stay order hearing over impeachment proceedings against Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh.The August 18 stay order was imposed by Associate Justice Sie-A-Nyene G. Yuoh, current Chamber Justice against some members of the House of Representatives, including Speaker Bhofal Chambers, to desist from any impeachment proceedings against Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh, pending final determination, by the Full Bench of the Supreme Court. of the Justice’s complaint of constitutional violation by the House of RepresentativesMembers of the House were cited to a hearing on the matter at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, August 22, but refused to appear. Instead, in a written message, they told the High Court to “vacate the purported stay order and avoid embarrassment.”Disclosing their planned protest on yesterday to journalists, Cllr. Arthur Johnson said, the lawmakers’ decision to disregard the Court’s order is an act that is not only inimical to the rule of law but also completely at odds with the Constitution.Johnson, who is one of the lawyers of the embattled Ja’neh, said yesterday that the protest was not about the political interest of anyone, rather about justice, “It is in the defense of the rule of law.”Johnson disclosed that during the protest every lawyer will be required to sit home and avoid every court activity as of September.“It should always be the lawmakers that demonstrate to the citizens, by their example and conduct, the importance of strictly adhering to and respecting the law,” Johnson emphasized.“When a government shows contempt for the law it becomes impossible for it to require citizens to respect the law,” Johnson said, defending the planned protest.According to Johnson, to disobey court orders as in the case of the lawmakers was “inimical to the rule of law.”He reminded members of the House of Representatives that they took an oath of office to protect and uphold the Constitution, “so disobeying it will have serious consequences to the peace and stability of the country and our young democracy.”To disobey a Court order, Johnson believes, was not only a violation of the Constitution but also negligence of public duty. He meanwhile called on the lawmakers to see reason, in the interest of the country and to protect the rule of law, to attend the next scheduled court’s hearing.A source in the hierarchy of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA) who preferred not to be named, told the Daily Observer that the Bar “is not aware of any protest by lawyers” and therefore will not be a part of said protest. “Lawyers are mediators, not protestors,” the Bar official said in a phone interview.However, a mobile text message (SMS) calling for the protest went viral among lawyers on Monday, August 27. Yet, many who received the message remained mute over whether they would participate or not.And although the LNBA has yet to officially speak on the entire Ja’neh impeachment saga, official said the Bar is preparing a statement to be issued soon.Despite the lawmakers’ refusal to attend the August 22 hearing, Chief Justice Francis Korkpor and his colleagues, excluding the embattled Justice Ja’neh, who had openly announced his recusal from the Bench for that case, proceeded with the matter, with his representation by a team of lawyers.Surprisingly, Justice Korkpor postponed the matter, after Ja’neh’s lead lawyer, Cllr. James E. Pierre asked for an additional week to prepare for the hearing into the writ because, according to him, the issue raised by the lawmakers contained serious study and they need enough time to file a well-researched defense for Justice Ja’neh.It can be recalled that on Tuesday, July 17, 2018, the Bill of Impeachment Petition, together with a motion proffered by Grand Kru County District #1 Representative Nathaniel Barway, received a favorable vote in the House of Representatives. Shortly afterward, Speaker Chambers set up an 8-man Ad-Hoc Committee to review and investigate the Impeachment Bill as well as the write-up of the proceedings.That committee was given three weeks as of July 17, 2018, to begin work and report to Plenary.The committee is chaired by Gbarpolu County District#2 Representative Kannie Wesso and co-chaired by Bong County District #5 Representative Edward Karfiah.Others were Representatives Dickson Seboe of District 16, Montserrado County; Jeremiah Koung of District #1, Nimba County; Dr. Isaac Roland of District 3, Maryland County; Clarence Gahr of District #5, Margibi County, and Rustonlyn S. Dennis of District#4, Montserrado County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img– wraps up grant programme with GuyanaBy Vahnu ManikchandAfter finally releasing the last instalment of its sugar grant last year, the European Union (EU) has now closed the programme, which saw Guyana benefiting from some $348.5 billion budgetary support to aid in sugar sector reform.This is according to the EU Ambassador to Guyana, Jernej Videti?, during a press conference on Thursday. The Ambassador noted that while the last grant was issued in 2013, it was not released to Guyana until last year after the country failed to meet the necessary indicators/criteria required.EU Ambassador Jernej Videti? (sitting) with other representatives from the local Mission including Head of Cooperation Christof Stock (first from left) at Thursday’s news conference“The last payment under the sugar programme was delayed; it was put on hold because we were waiting for the eligibility criteria to be met. So this payment was executed in October 2016,” Videti? told reporters.However, he added that the disbursement of this last instalment brings the curtains down on the sugar grant which will officially end on September 30. “There’re no more funds in there from this protocol… This is it,” the EU Head of Mission asserted.The EU Sugar Grant was established to compensate for the 36 per cent cut in preferential market price after the World Trade Organisation (WTO) had ruled that the preferential market access violated global free trade rules.A total of 1.28 billion euros were allocated for disbursement to the sugar protocol countries benefiting from the programme to help them adapt to the new market conditions. Guyana received its first instalment in 2006.According to Ambassador Videti?, the EU grant was to support the restructuring of the sugar sector and not for a policy design. The latter, he noted, is the sole competence and responsibility of Government.In fact, Head of Cooperation at the EU Mission in Guyana, Christof Stock, pointed out that while the monies were to support reform within the sugar sector, the EU had no actual involvement in that process.“…When we are doing budget support programme, which is to increase the ownership of the country of the programme, the money goes into the Treasury and the only influence we have is to check against the indicators – how the indicators are reached and that’s out of our responsibility. But this is a system which basically follows the Millennium Goals agreed and in order also to give those countries benefiting from budget support, the possibility to increase their ownership and to integrate the funds into their respective policy,” he explained.On Wednesday, a local online news entity reported Chief Executive Officer of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), Errol Hanoman, had said that the company is seeking the EU’s assistance to conduct a technical study on the feasibility of producing plantation white sugar here.However, when questioned about this at Thursday’s press conference, the EU Ambassador indicated to media operatives that he is unaware of this.“I’m not aware of this (or) that we would be involved in anything like that,” Ambassador Videti? said.Nevertheless, Stock explained that projects in the field of technical assistance to governments are done on a request basis. To this end, he noted that such collaboration can be possible.“Yes it is possible under request from Government; however, we haven’t received such a request so that’s not an issue now for us,” Stock stated.The Guyana Government has moved to downsize and diversify the heavily indebted and cash strapped sugar industry. A move, which has since attracted countrywide protest action with many, including the parliamentary Opposition and the largest sugar representation body GAWU (Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union), calling on the coalition Administration to reverse its decision.Agriculture Minister Noel Holder recently presented a ‘White Paper on the Future of the Sugar Industry’ to the National Assembly, revealing plans to close the Enmore and Rose Hall Sugar Estates, sell the Skeldon Sugar Factory, reduce the annual production of sugar, and take on the responsibility of managing the drainage and irrigation services offered by GuySuCo.last_img read more

first_imgOne of Donegal’s leading army officers has come up with a unique way of providing husbands, brothers and sons with the basic skills of surviving the outside world.But Battalion Sgt Major Pat Neilan’s training doesn’t involve killing animals for food or building a shelter from tree branches.His unique ‘How To’ session involves equipping the male population with much more useful day-to-day skills – like polishing a pair of shoes, ironing trousers without using an iron and tying a tie! Hundreds of fed-up wives, sisters and mothers have already enquired about the unique one-off course which runs at Donegal’s County Museum in Letterkenny on Tuesday, May 24th next.The idea for the ‘How To’ sessions came as a result of a chance conversation between Sgt Major Neilan, who is based at Finner Camp and Caroline Carr from Donegal County Museum.Caroline told Donegaldaily “We were just chatting one day and I said it would be great o do something practical for the public involving army skills.“He came up with the idea and the more I think about it, the more I think it’s going to be a huge hit,” she said. She says she has been inundated with enquiries about the course from people trying to get their sons, brothers, fathers and husbands better equipped for the outside world.“It’s amazing how many men can’t tie a tie or iron a pair of trousers. All I can say is that after spending a couple of hours with Pat Neilan, they’ll know,” she laughed.Caroline said considering the recession and competition for jobs, looking smart has probably never been more important.Admission to the sessions is free but people are asked to bring along their own tie!Caroline says she has already had a call from one woman who is planning to drive for an hour with her son to get a life-lesson from Sgt Major Neilan on appearance.
