first_imgA 53-year-old ex-Policeman turned security guard, Deon Aaron, was unanimously found guilty of raping a three-year-old female relative when the matter came to an end at the Sexual Offences Court on Wednesday.The jury took about two hours to arrive at the verdict. Justice Jo-Ann Barlow delayed Aaron’s sentencing to November 8, 2018 after his lawyer, Madan KissoonConvicted child rapist: Deon Aaronrequested a probation report be prepared on his client’s behalf.Although Aaron denied the offence earlier this month before his trial started, he stood with little expression when the jury forewoman announced the guilty verdict. Aaron was remanded to prison until his sentencing. It was alleged that he sexually penetrated the child between March 1 and October 20, 2016 at an East Bank Demerara village. Attorneys Abigail Gibbs, Seeta Bishundial and Tiffini Lyken prosecuted the ‘rape of a child under-16’ case.Reports were that the child was left in the man’s care when her mother was not at home. However, when the woman returned, her daughter complained of feeling unwell. After an investigation, the ex-Policeman was arrested, charged and later released on bail. Aaron had been committed to stand trial in the High Court in March 2018 following his arraignment in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts in February 2018.last_img read more

first_imgT&T swine flu casesAmid the upsurge of H1N1 cases in neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago, which has caused some worry to Guyanese, Chief Medical Officer of the Public Health Ministry, Dr Shamdeo Persaud has advised that the situation was under control, with provisions already in place at arrival ports to monitor passenger activities.Dr Shamdeo PersaudSpeaking with Guyana Times on Monday, Dr Persaud enunciated that ferry docks and arrival terminals at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport and Eugene F Correia International Airport are equipped with a framework which is expected to be implemented for all passengers. This includes the flight declaration being appraised to indicate if such cases enter the country.“We continue to maintain our port health requirement for all arriving flights and vessels. A person must do the general flight declaration which would give us a fair idea as to any sick person is coming in. Port health department would usually document those cases and follow them up, so those provisions are in place,” said the CMO.At present, there have not been any reported cases of the virus in Guyana. However, protocols have been established since the last occurrence, to test and treat patients whose conditions are conclusive.“So far, we haven’t had any positive cases detected here in the last two years…We had H1N1 here before, during the outbreak from Mexico. We have the techniques for sampling and testing for all severe respiratory infection and there are provisions here for protocols for treatment,” the CMO stated.As of recent, Trinidad and Tobago reported a minimum of 10 cases of the virus, which is commonly known as swine flu.This confirmation came from the country’s Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh according to a local news agency. He noted that out of the 75,000 H1N1 vaccines available, 14,500 people have been inoculated in the past few weeks.With the Carnival season soon to approach, the twin-island republic has decided that tourists must acquire the H1N1 vaccine in their respective countries before entering Trinidad. As it relates to citizens, these shots are provided free of cost at health centres.As it relates to Guyana, the virus was detected back in 2015.At that time, Dr Persaud confirmed that the person who had the virus was being treated. Measures were also taken to vaccinate doctors and other medical personnel who were treating the sick man.Initial reports were that the man had travelled from China to Guyana via the United States, but in-transited briefly in Trinidad.After falling ill, he was admitted to a private city hospital where he remained for over two weeks before being flown to the USA. During that period, blood samples were sent to neighbouring Trinidad for testing. Those results were returned to Guyana with confirmation that the man had indeed contracted the deadly virus.Former Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton was quoted in the media as saying that Guyana has the ability to detect and manage the virus. He had said that while Guyana could not prevent the virus from spreading to its shores, the two main ports of entry – Cheddi Jagan and Ogle International Airports – are on the alert and staff members were mandated to report anyone who showed symptoms of the disease.By that time, Trinidad had confirmed a total of 42 cases with four deaths as a result of the virus.Among the symptoms for H1N1 are chills, fever, coughing, sore throat, body aches, fatigue, and diarrhoea. This flu can also lead to more serious problems, including pneumonia – a lung infection – and other breathing problems.last_img read more

first_imgA 70-year-old pensioner is now traumatised after two bandits invaded his house, held him at knife point and relieved him of his valuables. The incident reportedly occurred at Lot 1106 Tuschen Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), where the pensioner, Matchane Harinarine, operates a small liquor store.Reports are that around 19:30h on Monday evening, Harinarine, who lives alone in the one-storey concrete and wooden building, closed his business and retired to bed.However, between 01:00h and 02:00h on Tuesday morning, he was awakened after hearing a loud noise emanating from the door at the northern side of his house.The pensioner got up and went to investigate. As he opened his door, he was confronted by two men, one of whom was armed with a knife.The armed bandit then placed the knife to Harinarine’s neck and ordered him to turn off the lights.The traumatised man, without hesitation, complied and the bandits proceeded to bind his hands and feet together with a piece of cloth.After doing so, the men ransacked the house in search of cash and other valuables.They reportedly found $200,000 in cash, a quantity of Digicel and GTT phone cards worth $60,000, two Blu cellular phones, and a silver hand band valued at $20,000.The bandits, after securing the loot, walked through the door and made good their escape on foot. An alarm was subsequently raised and the Police were summoned to the scene. No arrests were made.last_img read more

first_imgBut two goals in three first-half minutes from in-form Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling gave them valuable breathing space at half-time and ultimately paved the way to a victory that ended Watford’s perfect record.Rocked by United’s strong finish to the first half, Watford pulled a goal back midway through the second period through Andre Gray but failed to find an equaliser despite a strong finish.Mourinho opted for power rather than guile at Vicarage Road with a physically imposing midfield trio of Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Nemanja Matic.Former Watford player Ashley Young came in at left-back to replace Luke Shaw, who suffered a head injury while on England duty last week.The first half an hour was even as the two sides tested each other out –- United probed but the home side looked dangerous on the break, confidence coursing through the players on the back of four straight wins.Watford went close to breaking the deadlock when Troy Deeney forced David de Gea to tip over just after the quarter-hour mark.Midway through the half Alexis Sanchez had the ball in the net but it was ruled out for offside, and minutes later the Chilean forced a fine save from Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster following a jinking run.United, backed by their vocal travelling fans, who regularly chanted the name of Mourinho, were establishing a foothold in the game and made their pressure count in the 35th minute.Watford failed to clear a free-kick and when the ball came back in, Lukaku was on hand to bundle the ball in off his midriff to score his seventh goal as many games for club and country this season.Foster then kept out a powerful Pogba drive but United were two up in the 38th minute when Smalling controlled a Fellaini header following a corner, and smashed the ball home.Buoyant United then nearly grabbed a third but Foster saved well from Pogba as Watford kept the score at 2-0 at the break.But Javi Gracia’s side came right back into the game in the 65th minute when Abdoulaye Doucoure picked out Gray, who smashed home, giving De Gea no chance.That goal infused the team and the fans with renewed belief and United suddenly looked nervy.Doucoure saw a late left-foot shot from outside the box saved at the near post as time ran out.Matic was sent off for a second yellow card but Watford did not have time to make their extra man count, with De Gea pulling off an outstanding save to tip away a Christian Kabasele header in the dying seconds.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Romelu Lukaku continued his excellent run of form with the opening goal© AFP OLLY GREENWOODWATFORD, United Kingdom, Sep 15 – Manchester United punctured Watford’s bubble on Saturday, withstanding late pressure from the surprise early Premier League pacesetters to win 2-1 and relieve the pressure on beleaguered manager Jose Mourinho.United have endured a miserable start to the season, losing two of their first four matches and slipping well off the searing pace set by Liverpool, Chelsea and Watford themselves.last_img read more

first_imgJonathan Walters was the hero as his double at the Aviva Stadium was enough to beat Bosnia and confirm the Republic of Ireland’s place at Euro 2016.Despite a nervous start, Walters calmed the capacity crowd when he slotted a first-half penalty past Asmir Begovic in the Bosnian goal.He doubled the score on the night – and made it 3-1 on aggregate after the 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture last Friday – with a brilliantly-taken 70th minute volley.It was far from comfortable for the Irish, but Martin O’Neill’s side will now join England, Wales and Northern Ireland in France next summer.Both sides began the game with a very edgy look to them in front of a raucous emerald crowd, with Ireland struggling to carve out a chance of any significance to calm the nerves.Walters – restored to the line-up after missing the first leg through suspension – came the closest to an early goal after a great run and low cross by Robbie Brady, only for the Stoke forward’s stabbed effort to be blocked by Begovic.However, Bosnia’s discipline let them down after 20 minutes as they conceded two free kicks in dangerous areas which eventually led to Senad Lulic handling in the box to give Ireland a penalty.Walters stepped up against Begovic and sent his former teammate the wrong way from the spot to push the Boys in Green one step closer to Euro 2016.The goal seemed to spark Bosnia into life with Eden Dzeko going close while Mirelam Pjanic began to dictate proceedings from the middle of the park.The visitors came out after the break like a different team as they seemed to secure a monopoly on possession and chances, with only the head of Ciaran Clark keeping Ireland ahead after Pjanic’s curling effort.The Aviva Stadium was audibly becoming more tense as Ireland relied on counter-attacking football to relieve the huge amount of pressure generated by Bosnia.Lulic then wasted a golden chance to equalise when Edin Visca pulled the ball back inside the Ireland area, but the Lazio man could only manage a fresh air shot.However, all the tension was lifted in the 70th minute when Walters volleyed in Brady’s free kick at the far post to all but book Ireland’s place in France next summer.Substitute Shane Long almost added a third as he broke away into the Bosnia penalty area but miskicked his shot at the vital moment as Begovic rushed down at his feet.Bosnia struck the bar late on through substitute Vedad Ibiševi?, but Ireland hung on to qualify for their second consecutive European Championship finals, having only qualified once prior to 2012. 1 Jonathan Walters last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Carousel is an equestrian therapy program for disabled children where the boy’s father is caretaker, Tomey said. The child admitted playing with matches behind the ranch, inadvertently igniting a fire that burned for days, Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators said.District Attorney Steve Cooley’s office delivered this terse message, refusing further comment because of the child’s age:“The evidence presented by Sheriff’s investigators was that the fire was caused by the 10-year-old boy playing with matches and accidentally igniting the brush. There is no evidence of intent on the part of the minor.”Officials say the child is 10, but Tomey, who knows the family well, insisted he is 9.While there will be no charges, the matter will be referred to the county Department of Children and Family Services for evaluation, according to the District Attorney’s Office. Criminal charges will not be filed against the 9-year-old boy who accidentally set the massive Buckweed Fire that destroyed 21 homes and severely injured one man, the District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.Prosecutors determined there was no intent on the boy’s part to ignite the fire, one that was propelled by gale-force winds across 38,000 acres from Agua Dulce to Saugus.“I think that’s a very good thing – he’s just a child who made a mistake,” said Denise Tomey, executive director of Carousel Ranch, located near the starting point of the fire.“In reality, a lot of damage has been done, but nothing can really make it right.” The fire started Oct. 21, one of several in Southern California that burned for days under high winds and hot, dry conditions. The following day, the boy admitted to investigators he had started the fire and he and another person tried to stomp it out.Ironically, the only person seriously injured in the fire was the caretaker at another therapeutic equestrian ranch, Heads Up – Therapy With Horses, who was burned after staying behind to help save that organization’s 12 horsesFour others, including two firefighters, were burned, and 63 structures, including the 21 homes in Agua Dulce and Canyon Country, were destroyed. Thirty more structures were damaged.Firefighting costs topped $7 million.Meanwhile, the boy is staying elsewhere in the area with his mother, Tomey said.Tomey said people she’s heard from for the most part didn’t think the child should be charged.“I hear both ways, but most people have been very supportive,” she said. “It certainly affected a lot of people – we can’t make light of that – but he’s a 9-year-old boy. He had no malicious intent. It was a terrible mistake.“It’s so sad on so many different levels.pat.aidem@dailynews.com661-257-5251160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
