Govt mulls Opposition’s help in recouping $900M from Surendra

first_img– former AG says he is willing to assistBY VAHNU MANICKCHANDMore than one year after the Guyana Government won a multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed against India-basedAnil Nandlallconstruction company, Surendra Engineering Corporation Limited, the country is yet to recover some $902 million that was awarded by the court.Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams told reporters on Saturday that he does not have much information on the case but noted that before they can move to recover the money, they have to locate the company.Williams said the previous Administration waited until the company left the country to file lawsuit. “So what we got was really an empty judgment… they (Surendra) have nothing here,” he posited.When asked about the provision for Commonwealth member countries that can see Guyana taking steps to have the judgment enforced in India, the Attorney General explained that the company will have to be located first.“Well we can register the judgment in Indian but we have to find them there too… We have to know where to find them. Do you know that they are in India,” he remarked.Moreover, Williams said he has not enquired about the whereabouts of the company since he does not have any information on the matter. In fact, the Attorney General noted that when he assumed office, there was a lot of State cases for which no files could have been found in the Attorney General’s Chambers.Basil Williams“I have no files on the Surendra matter… The last [Attorney General] AG used to give these things out to the private practitioners,” he stated. Asked whether he approached the court for the files, he responded in the negative, explaining that the matter was never really brought to him by the Solicitor General or anyone else in the Ministry.Nevertheless, he said they will have to decide what options his office will adopt in order to recover the monies from Surendra Engineering. However, the Legal Affairs Minister recalled that Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had offered to help Government with certain cases but said he is not sure whether former Attorney General Anil Nandlall would be willing to give his assistance.To this end, when contacted, Nandlall told Guyana Times that he is willing to work with Government on any legal matter in the interest of the nation. He noted that this is a commitment of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) as a political party and as a political party sitting in the National Assembly.“As a political party, we are committed to working with Government on any matter that is in the best interest of the nation,” he posited. The former Attorney General also clarified that the Surendra case was handled by him and not any private practitioner.Moreover, Nandlall went on to say that it was in the context of national interest that the Leader of the Opposition had indicated to President David Granger that there are a number of cases pending that they are willing to help Government in recouping monies owed to the State, especially those in relation to taxation.The former PPP/C Government had taken the India-based company to court after it failed to honour its obligations under the US$18 million plus Specialty Hospital contract. The legal proceedings was filed in October 2014, just a month after the contract was yanked from Surendra Engineering.The Government had sued the India-based company for an excess of US$100 million for alleged fraud, breach of contract and delays in works done. The legal document detailed that Surendra Engineering was found guilty of fraudulent practices and in breach of the terms, conditions and warranties of the contract it had signed back in September 2012 to design, build, equip, test, deliver, install, complete and commission a Surgical Specialty Hospital at Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown.After the court action was initiated, the Indian firm failed to attend the court hearings and never responded to a summons and the writs filed by the Government, as such, the judgment was handed down in favour of Government. Special damages to the tune of US$4,285,440 and interest thereon, amounting to the costs of US$10,714.50, were awarded to Government.last_img read more

‘Miracle Hands Christmas Village 2017’ hosted

first_img…at Herdmanston LodgeBirthed by local fashion designer and director Carol Fraser, a most interesting annual expo kicked off under the heat of the midday sun on Saturday at Herdmanston Lodge, situated at the corner of Peter Rose and Anira Streets in Queenstown Georgetown.According to the event coordinator, this social event has been ongoing for several years, and was only recently rebranded as ‘Miracle Hands Christmas Village’. Scenes captured on Sunday at the ‘Miracle Hands Christmas Village 2017’ hosted at Herdmanston Lodge“A few years ago, I used to celebrate my birth anniversary here, where I used to display my art and I would host a little fashion show and entertainment. So, after five years, I decided to do it again, but with a different name, and I’ve invited some of my colleagues in the fashion, art, designing, and culinary art. The whole idea is to create an atmosphere where people can come and socialise and source local stuff for gifts for Christmas. You find during this time people are very busy with their home, decorating and so. So now you can just come one spot and they can get anything. Even if they are not interested, they can have a look, collect contact number, and we can deliver it to them,” she explained.The designer also revealed that Carol’s Designs in footwear and handbags, created from natural fibre and animal skin and leather, are now being branded in Guyana.She took the opportunity to introduce “Miracle Hands Green Card” which accrues endless benefits to customers upon purchase.Many other local designers, artists and producers flaunted a line of exquisite jewelry, art, and a wide variety of products made from local materials. The Guyana Natural Fiber Fashion Art Association exhibited locally produced beauty skin and hair products, as well as known by-products of cassava.One particularly talented jeweller, Seleina Fung, proprietor of “Seleina’s Craft and Things”, boasted unique hand-made designs crafted out of copper wire and local gems. Her business is home-based, from whence she markets and sells her bold jewelry via social media, even making deliveries to customers.Miracle Hands Christmas Village 2017 also presented a publicity opportunity for the launching of new products and businesses.Launching a new formula detergent branded “Nyla’s Blue Sky” was Dasanya Trading, According to proprietor Sandy Ramsaran, this product is soon to take the market by storm.“Nyla’s Blue Sky” was specially formulated, produced, and packaged in China for Dasanya Trading. It is an advanced formula which contains natural oxygen foam to remove stains from white and coloured clothing. It has a negative ion exterior active agent, non-hydronium exterior active agent, softness, optical brightening agent, and lasting perfume. Branded after Ramsaran’s daughter “Nyla”, the soap powder is produced according to European Standards, and Sandy is confident the product has the potential to become the next Guyanese “household” detergent.Meanwhile, a young teacher with a passion for baking, Christine Douglas, brought to the exhibition her newly founded business, “Cakes Delight”, her way of bringing happiness into the lives of other people.“It’s something I really love doing: baking and cooking. It makes me happy, and I realized that food and cakes make people happy… and if I can provide some happiness to people, that would be wonderful….so I decided to open as a business,” she told this publication.last_img read more

Ethics panel combs laws on lobbyists

first_imgBattered by critics over loopholes in Los Angeles’ lobbying provisions, the city Ethics Commission on Friday began re-examining regulations covering everything from registration to fundraising. In the first of several planned workshops, Ethics Commission staff members met with lobbyists and others to determine which regulations might need to be changed to better reflect the role and activities of lobbyists. “This city has had some regulations on lobbyists in effect since 1969 and has been a leader in looking at their activities,” Ethics Commission Director LeeAnn Pelham said. “But it’s been some time since we have had a re-evaluation of it.” The city’s lobbying laws have gained increased scrutiny since the November passage of Measure R, which gave City Council members the option to run for a third four-year term and was designed to limit the influence of lobbyists on City Hall decisions. Under current laws, lobbyists are required to report that they are hosts of events if they pass an e-mail on to at least 25 people or are involved in telephone conversations regarding fundraisers. That rule applies even if they have no significant hosting role in the event. Limits on lobbyists’ political activities long have been a concern of local officials. Concern escalated under former Mayor James Hahn, whose administration was embroiled in allegations regarding “pay-for-play” abuses. Subsequent regulations were designed to stem the role of lobbyists as political fundraisers. In one of his first acts after taking office, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa also removed all lobbyists from city commissions. Pelham said the Ethics Commission review is expected to take several months to complete. rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The measure, however, failed to address loopholes that have been used to allow lobbyists to continue to raise thousands of dollars on behalf of elected officials and candidates. Pelham said the commission’s review will include Measure R and its impact. For lobbyists, many of their complaints involve city bookkeeping rules that often require filing duplicate statements of work performed. They also want a clearer definition of what constitutes lobbying activity and any administrative work they do. Several lobbyists at the Friday workshop said most of their work has involved pulling building permits and submitting plans for approval to allow city work to proceed for their clients. The lobbyists also urged the city to adopt clearer rules on what must be reported for fundraising activities. last_img read more

Tenants lecture teacher landlord

first_imgA university real estate instructor got a lecture from his Echo Park tenants who are facing eviction because the landlord wants to opt out of a federal subsidy program and raise rents. Some three dozen Morton Avenue tenants boarded a bus and rode to the University of California, Los Angeles, where business school instructor Eric Sussman was teaching a class Tuesday. Wearing bright red T-shirts and hoisting signs telling Sussman he should be ashamed, the tenants marched toward their landlord’s class clutching a piggy bank. They also had a letter asking UCLA’s chancellor to review Sussman’s business practices. Campus police wouldn’t allow the demonstrators inside the classroom. A short time later, Sussman went outside to chants of “Shame on you!” He reluctantly accepted the pig, and students later dropped coins into it. Sussman and his partners want out of the federally subsidized Section 8 program, which partially pays the rent for 22 families in the Morton Gardens complex. The government’s fair market calculations are up to $1,000 less than what the units can fetch on the open market. Some tenants, Sussman said, are paying $1,200 for two- and three-bedroom apartments that are worth more than $2,000. Last year, Sussman served eviction notices on the Section 8 tenants, but tenant advocates say the city’s tough eviction rules prevent the poor from being tossed out and a federal lawsuit was filed. The tenants can stay until a judge issues a decision. A ruling is expected in August. Sussman was targeted to “send a message to all landlords,” said Larry Gross, executive director of the Coalition for Economic Survival. “I love this place I live,” said Debora Barrientos, a 43-year-old single mother who lives at the complex. Sussman said he thought it was inappropriate for the tenants to attempt to “harass and intimidate me,” adding that government must do more to provide affordable housing.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

LVG talked out of quitting, Liverpool frustrated over Teixeira – latest gossip

first_img Transfer rumours and paper review 1 Here are the top transfer-related stories in Monday’s newspapers…Louis van Gaal offered to resign as the Manchester United manager on Saturday following the dismal home defeat by Southampton but Ed Woodward, the executive vice-chairman, persuaded him to discuss his future with his family. Having returned to the Netherlands on Sunday, Van Gaal will hold fresh talks with Woodward on Tuesday on his return to Manchester. It is possible Van Gaal could yet insist it is best for the club if he leaves, but Woodward is keen to avoid having to appoint a manager in the middle of the season. (Guardian)Shakhtar Donetsk forward Alex Teixeira wants to join Liverpool but the Anfield club will have to improve upon their latest £28million offer. Shakhtar rejected Liverpool’s revised bid for Teixeira on Monday and are holding out for closer to their £38million valuation. (Daily Mail)Andros Townsend looks certain to move from Tottenham to Newcastle with the clubs close to agreeing a compromise over the fee for the England winger. Tottenham’s chairman, Daniel Levy, had originally demanded that they pay £14m to secure the 24-year-old and rejected Newcastle’s opening offer of £10m earlier this month. But Mauricio Pochettino has personally intervened to request that the club accepts a lower bid – understood to be somewhere in the middle of the two clubs’ valuations. (Guardian)Newcastle United are set to make another attempt to sign Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette this month, despite having already failed to persuade the player to leave midway through the season. Newcastle are willing to pay more than £20m to land the 24-year-old, as well as offer him a contract that would make him one of the highest earners at the club. (Daily Telegraph)West Ham have hit complications over their bid to sign Emmanuel Emenike but are hopeful of completing a loan deal for the striker before the transfer window closes.

RELEASED REPUBLICAN PRISONER THREATENED TO SHOOT NIGHTCLUB BOUNCER

first_imgA 42-year-old man, freed under the terms of the Good Friday agreement, was one of two brothers who admitted threatening to shoot security staff at a Bundoran night club in 2009.Ballyshannon District Court was given details of how Arty Forbes and his brother Raymond Forbes (45) were ejected from the Paris nite club in Bundoran on December 12th, 2009 after an altercation with two others inside the premises. After they were ejected they were said to be “pretty agitated” and it was at this stage they issued the threat to door staff. Arty Forbs faced three counts and older brother Raymond, one count of threatening to kill or cause serious harm.Initially they tried to get a taxi driver to drive them to Ballyshannon for 50 euro, but they then got another taxi driver to take them to Rossnowlagh.In the course of the journey the taxi driver overheard a discussion of the getting of a gun and the rounding up of a posse to come back.The driver dropped them to their destination, but on his return he came across a garda patrol car, as gardai had already been alerted to the altercation and the nature of the threats.The taxi man told gardai the address where he had dropped them off in Rossnowlagh.Gardai then had the location where the men were staying under surveillance until a more senior garda arrived. They believed that a weapon had been put into a car.As gardai approached, Arty Forbes became confrontational but Raymond Forbes went back into the house and retrieved a .22 magnum anschutz rifle. He handed it over to gardai but there was no ammunition for it. It was legally held.Defence solicitor Florence Hutchinson said people at the club didn’t take the gun threat seriously, the brothers didn’t ask the taxi to wait to bring them back to the club, and they weren’t arrested on the night.Raymond Forbes had gone back into their house and handed over the gun voluntarily when asked about the earlier incident by gardai, she added.She said: “It was an idle threat in a drunken outburst. It was most regrettable and they had no facility to carry it out,” a reference to gardai not finding any bullets or ammunition.She said that the two were no longer involved in politics and were making a fresh start after growing up in Strabane.Judge Mary Devins heard that both had previous convictions of the brothers in Northern Ireland, including a Belfast Crown Court conviction in 1990 against Arty of possession of explosives with intent to endanger life when he received 18 years but was later released under the Good Friday agreement.Raymond Forbes had a Strabane conviction for criminal assault and possession of an offensive weapon, but none in the south.Judge Devins observed: “In the light of the history of the defendants the threat to kill must be taken more seriously.”She said that the first defendant, Art Forbes who now lived at Sea View, Tullaghan, Co. Leitrim, should have had more sense especially in light of his previous convictions and his release under the terms of the Good Friday agreement.In his case she warned him that she would “adjourn the matter of sentencing for 12 months,” adding, “You could be sent to prison for two years.”If defendant remained out of trouble in that time, she would “make certain recommendations” which his solicitor would explain. He was remanded on continuing bail to appear before Ballyshannon District Court on March 2nd, 2012.Raymond Forbes, whose address was given as Tarmon Manor, Castlerea, Co. Roscommon, was ordered to make a €500 charitable donation to the RNLI before March 18th next.RELEASED REPUBLICAN PRISONER THREATENED TO SHOOT NIGHTCLUB BOUNCER was last modified: March 8th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more

€1,500 DONATIONS ORDERED FOR DUO IN ‘GAY SHIRT’ NIGHTCLUB PUNCH-UP

first_imgTWO men who fought inside a Co Donegal nightclub in a row over a ‘gay shirt’ have been ordered to hand over €750 each by a judge.One of the men suffered a broken jaw and the other man bruising after a punch-up at The Grill in Letterkenny on August 15, 2012.Both had contested charges against them at a previous hearing at Letterkenny District Court. The court heard an investigation was launched when Michael McDevitt, Drury Road, Kerrykeel, made a formal complaint of assault to officers at Letterkenny on August 24, 2012.He had suffered a serious blow in the incident nine days earlier and was later transferred from Letterkenny General Hospital to Altnagelvin in Derry where he underwent surgery to repair a broken jaw.A metal plate and six bolts had to be inserted into his jaw.Adam O’Donnell, a 22-year-old apprentice toolmaker from Castlewray, Letterkenny, later admitted punching McDevitt, but insisted it was in self defence, and only to protect his younger brother Mark who had been accosted by McDevitt who had made references to his clothes and his “gay shirt.”After hearing evidence from both men, Judge Paul Kelly convicted McDevitt of disorderly conduct in a public place, relating to his comments to Mark O’Donnell.He also convicted both McDevitt and Adam O’Donnell on assault charges, the latter on assault causing harm.Inspector Michael Harrison told the trial that on the evidence given to the court it was clear that Adam O’Donnell saw that his brother was frightened and he went to look after him.Michael McDevitt was throwing insults at the young man Mark, he said, and his brother went over and intervened and an altercation took place.Judge Paul Kelly agreed. He said the disorder in a public place – the insults to Mark O’Donnell – was proved.He said there was some type of lunge by McDevitt on Adam O’Donnell in which he received a minor injury. Adam had retaliated resulting in life-changing injuries for Mr McDevitt, a 20-year-old driver with Marine Harvest in Kerrykeel.Judge Paul Kelly said the incident was started by McDevitt “who must have been in a state of considerable intoxication” having consumed two pints of bulmers  and a half a bottle of vodka before going to The Grill and then six vodkas and two Jagemeisters on the premises.“He subjected Mark O’Donnell to extremely offensive insults and his brother Adam had intervened. The incident escalated almost instantly and I am satisfied they struck each other,” said the judge.Today ‘favourable’ probation reports were handed in to Judge Kelly.Solicitors Niall Sheridan, for O’Donnell, and Ciaran McLaughlin for McDevitt, pleaded that both men had suffered as a result of the incident.They asked that no conviction be recorded and that the men be given a chance.Both men did not want the other to “suffer any further punitive” actions, said Mr Sheridan.Judge Paul Kelly said the fight was “an all too common tale around here.”He added: “The Courts are constantly dealing with cases fuelled by drink where young men get too much on board and the next thing there is violence and serious injury.”The judge said the courts would always deal in a certain way with young men on first offences but that both of them had contested the charges at a trial.However he said in the circumstances he would order each man to pay €750 into court.He said €250 would be used to pay State expenses in the case and €500 would be donated to the Donegal Youth Service.Judge Kelly ordered that the fees be paid by September 15 and that both men should appear in court again on that date.€1,500 DONATIONS ORDERED FOR DUO IN ‘GAY SHIRT’ NIGHTCLUB PUNCH-UP was last modified: June 16th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Adam O’DonnellassaultLetterkenny CourtMichael McDevittThe Grilllast_img read more

URA remain fourth after draw with Bul

first_imgURA are still 4th on the table (File Photo)Startimes Uganda Premier League URA FC 1-1 Bul FCMandela National Stadium, NambooleFriday, 22-03-2019NAMBOOLE – URA FC missed a chance to move third on the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table following a 1-1 draw at home to Bul FC.In the only game played on Friday, the Tax Collectors raced into an early lead, with January signing Cromwell Rwomothio tapping in from close range.The former Paidha Black Angels Captain was in the right place at the right time as he converted 5 yards from goal after he was played in by a delicious Peter Lwasa low cross from the right inside the opening minute.URA looked to be up to the game and on 10 minutes, Patrick Mbowa saw a header off Said Kyeyune’s corner pushed away to safety by Hannington Ssebwalunyo in Bul’s goal.At the other end, the visitors had their first chance on at goal when Pierre Kambale rattled the wood-work off an out-swinging corner.The chances were coming thick and first as moments later, Lwasa ran through on goal, one on one with the keeper but it was Ssebwalunyo who came up on top, saving the striker’s effort which was bound for goal.Despite creating most of the opportunities in the first half, URA had to settle for only a one goal caution at the sound of the halftime whistle.In the second, BUL started imposing them selves was with Man of the Match, Yunus Sibira and Patrick Ssembuya taking charge of the midfield.BUL was once again denied by the woodwork when Ezekiel Katende’s ferocious strike rattled the crossbar in the 54th minute.At the hour mark, the visitors finally got their reward as Richard Wandyaka scored against his former employers to level matters.A fine delivery from Umaru Mukobe off a free kick down the right flank found Wandyaka unmarked in the area and he headed home past URA goalkeeper Nafian Alionzi.The two teams eventually settled for a draw in the end, the 12th for URA FC this season.The tax collectors remain 4th with 39 points after 23 rounds while BUL are still 5th with 36 points.Comments Tags: Bul FCTooro United StarTimes Uganda Premier LeaguetopURA FClast_img read more
