Consultations on today for State Assets Recovery Bill

first_imgThe Legal Affairs Ministry and the Attorney General’s Chambers will be hosting a public consultation session on the drafted State Assets Recovery Bill 2016; a proposed legislation that seeks to fight corruption within public offices.The six-part Bill was drafted by the Attorney General’s Chambers with the assistance of the United Nations, the World Bank and a British fraud expert. The drafted Bill was published on the Ministry’s website two weeks ago ahead of the consultation, which will be held today at the Pegasus Hotel commencing at 09:00h.Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams disclosed that the Bill isDr Clive ThomasAttorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williamsdesigned to create the State Assets Recovery Agency (SARA) and contains provisions to employ and empower a director, along with staff members, including the designation of the Public Security Minister of staff, such as Police Officers and immigration officers, as well as designation by the Finance Minister of staff, such as customs and revenue officers.“This is largely a civil recovery and civil remedy bill so that you will have civil recourses for protection order, restraint orders and the like. And of course, there is the aspect of international cooperation. This order, of course, relates to state assets unlawfully stolen or unlawfully acquired by public officials or any other persons and those assets could be reached wherever the trail takes the director and his staff,” Williams stated.According to the Attorney General, the provisions of the Bill are quite clear and without any complexity. The Bill, he added, is aimed at a particularly mischief and is developed in consonance with UN policies against corruption.“This Bill has been sometime in the making and it is vital in the war against corruption by State officials, public officials and persons whom they may act in consort with,” he noted.The Legal Affairs Minister went on to highlight the importance of the Bill against the background of SARU conducting its investigation during which they requested information from various agencies but it was not forthcoming.He clarified that SARA will more be given civil recovery powers and not prosecution powers but noted that it would be the discretion of the Director to decided whether criminal recourse would be a better avenue in any particularly cases.Moreover, Williams outlined that one of the hallmarks of the Bill is that it will create a fund, hence the assets recovered will go into that fund for the operations of SARA.Among the stakeholders expected to be at the consultations are the Guyana Bar Association, the Private Sector Commission and the Guyana Human Rights Association. In addition, there will be a representative from the US Embassy; current Director of SARU, Dr Clive Thomas; Chief Parliamentary Council; along with the UK Fraud specialists and also representatives from the UN and World Bank, who will preside over the consultations on the various provisions of the Bill.last_img read more

Mayor decries violent clash

first_imgTV news shows repeatedly broadcast videotaped images of police officers wielding batons and firing 240 rubber pellets. New footage also emerged of agitators, some with bandannas masking their faces, throwing rocks and bottles at officers. Four investigations have been launched into the melee, including a civil-rights inquiry by the FBI. Bratton, his eyes red-rimmed, repeated his apologies, as well as his vow to resolve the issue as quickly and as openly as possible. “I am embarrassed for this department,” said Bratton, who on Monday received overwhelming praise during a public hearing on his bid for reappointment. “I am embarrassed for the city I serve. I will make every effort to find out what went wrong and who made decisions when inappropriate. Each and every officer in that venue will have to explain their actions, independent of the orders and the direction and orders they were given. “Directions and orders make no excuse for violations of policy and the law,” Bratton said. At least two internal LAPD investigations are under way, and Bratton said a probe is continuing to identify a group of about 50 to 100 “agitators” he believes started the violence by advancing on police and throwing rocks and bottles. Police Commission President John Mack, who headed the Urban League for 37 years, said he was disappointed in the department’s actions, coming after years of trying to reform. “On May 1, we had some opening of some old wounds,” Mack said. “It takes an incident like this to remind us we still have a long way to go.” He said the commission’s investigation – headed by Inspector General Andre Birotte – will focus on a possible breakdown in command. Earlier in the day, Mack said the incident should be considered in Bratton’s bid for a second term as chief. And Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina, saying she would not sugarcoat her anger, called for a quick and exhaustive investigation. She said the public needs to know who was in charge of crowd control at MacArthur Park, what preparations the LAPD had made for the rally and who decided to tell the primarily Spanish-speaking crowd to disperse by broadcasting the order in English from a helicopter hovering overhead. “I’m very disappointed with the LAPD,” Molina said. “Shame on them.” Cops’ acts decried Early Friday, state legislators, immigration activists and others gathered at MacArthur Park to denounce police conduct. “There are no excuses; a simple apology is not going to suffice,” said state Assembly Speaker Fabian Nu ez, an ally of the mayor. “To say we are outraged is an understatement. “We want those responsible in the highest levels of the LAPD to pay consequences.” Meanwhile, legal claims began to mount against the city, including one filed by a Fox camerawoman who said she was beaten by officers. Attorney Luis Carrillo said he had filed two claims on behalf of people injured by police and plans to file at least nine more in the coming days. Organizers of the march – who have set up a hotline for those injured – also said they are preparing claims. One of the claimants, Adolfo Cruz, said he was at the rally with his family and was hit on the back with a police baton as officers tried to clear the park. Jazmin Marroquin, who will also file a claim, said officers pointed a rifle at her toddler, prompting him to ask, “Mama, do the police want to kill me?” Carrillo said he wants the Police Commission to delay consideration of Bratton’s reappointment. And he also plans to ask a U.S. District Court for a five-year extension of a consent decree set to expire in 2009. “The LAPD is incapable of acting under the Constitution of the United States,” he said. The LAPD decree was imposed in 2001 to avert a lawsuit over civil-rights violations and corruption by officers in the Rampart Division. It establishes detailed procedures for how the department tracks complaints against officers and investigates use-of-force complaints. Carrillo said the MacArthur Park incident illustrates “a total lack of command and control, lack of supervision and lack of training of those officers.” City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo said it is too early to determine the potential liability the city faces as a result of the confrontation, but he is prepared to defend the city. He also said one of the demonstrators had pleaded no contest to throwing a bottle at a vehicle. District Attorney Steve Cooley said he also will wait to see the results of the LAPD investigations before determining whether his office should be involved. “The Justice System Integrity Division will work with the LAPD on that investigation, if asked,” Cooley said. The Los Angeles Police Protective League also entered the debate, with strongly worded letters to Nu ez and City Councilman Herb Wesson, who blasted the department’s response. League President Bob Baker expressed concern that their comments could fuel anger toward the police by creating an “us-against-them, anti-law enforcement mentality that encourages violence against police officers and, at its worst, provokes the kind of conspiracy theories that can start riots.” rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390 How to help Witnesses and people with video of the May 1 clash are asked to call LAPD Inspector General Andre Birotte at (213) 202-5866 or submit a report at www.lacity.org/oig.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Back home after an aborted trade mission to Mexico, a grim Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Friday that he was outraged by the May Day clash between the LAPD and immigration demonstrators, and he promised “the highest level of scrutiny” in the city’s investigation. During an evening news conference given in both English and Spanish, Villaraigosa said he had been “deeply, personally” affected by the images of Los Angeles Police Department officers clad in riot gear, wielding batons and firing rubber bullets to break up a pro-immigration march at MacArthur Park. “It hit me in my gut,” said a visibly upset Villaraigosa. “We consider this a violation of our human rights,” added the mayor, who was flanked by city, county and state officials. “What happened on May 1 was wrong. I am here to work as hard as I can to make it right.” At the same time, he commended Police Chief William Bratton for his quick response, but said he hoped an internal LAPD probe will be completed more rapidly than the 30 days allowed by the City Council. “It is important that the inquiry look at all aspects – from the way officers acted on the skirmish line to the decisions made to authorize the use of force – and the results be made public as soon as possible,” the mayor said. Criticism mounts Villaraigosa said he decided to cut short his 10-day trade mission to El Salvador and Mexico after viewing videotaped footage of the altercation and talking with some of those who had organized the demonstration. As the mayor was flying home from Mexico, criticism continued to mount in Los Angeles over the LAPD’s actions in dispersing protesters after a day of peaceful demonstrations. last_img read more

Fort St. John wants to keep elderly community safe from abusers

first_imgHere in northern B.C. there are more than a half dozen communities with networks including Fort St. John in the Northeast working to keep seniors safe.Between 4 – 10 per cent of seniors will experience some form of physical, emotional, sexual or financial abuse, according to an estimate by the provincial Health Ministry.In addition, the ministry believes that could be a conservative estimate, since many victims often don’t report elder abuse because most abusers are either family members or others close to them.- Advertisement -The most common form is financial abuse, but the ways in which seniors are victimized in this case keep changing.Currently internet and email related abuse has become more widespread, and is often invisible, resulting in the need for a full community effort of vigilance and support.Throughout the north many planned activities are being arranged to mark elderly abuse day, and for more information you can go online to www.bccrn.ca.Advertisementlast_img read more

Emery believes Gunners will gain from Ozil’s Germany exile

first_img0Shares0000Mesut Ozil (second right) scores Arsenal’s second goal in a 2-1 win away to Newcastle in the English Premier League on Saturday © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYNEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, Sep 15 – Unai Emery is confident that Arsenal can be the major beneficiaries from Mesut Ozil’s acrimonious retirement from international football.The 29-year-old announced in June that he would no longer represent his country following Germany’s disappointing World Cup campaign in Russia, where they were knocked out in the group stage. Ozil claimed he was made a scapegoat for the high-profile failure, and cited “racism and disrespect” over his Turkish roots as a major factor in his decision to bring the curtain down on a career at the highest level which included 92 games, 23 goals and a 2014 World Cup winners’ medal.After initially failing to impress new Arsenal manager Emery, Ozil has answered the Spaniard’s public call to impose himself more on games, backing up an influential display in the victory at Cardiff by scoring his first Premier League goal since December to help secure a third consecutive victory, a 2-1 win at struggling Newcastle on Saturday.Ozil looked refreshed at St James’ Park after being given time off during the recent international break, playing a prominent role in a deserved success which saw Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka open the scoring for the Gunners.“Of course it’s a new way for Mesut (after his international retirement), and we want him to show his quality in his performance each day in training and in each match,” said Arsenal coach Emery.“We want to see the best of him and today he worked very well, took his goal nicely and he continues to work to help the team,” added Emery, given the daunting task of succeeding Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager following the Frenchman’s near 22 years in charge of the London club.– ‘Need to improve’ –Arsenal coach Unai Emery shouts instructions from the touchline at St James’ Park on Saturday © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYAfter leading Arsenal to their first back-to-back away wins in the top flight for 16 months, Emery stressed the importance of finding a consistency of results on the road as he looks to lead the Gunners back towards a top-four finish after a two-season absence from the Champions League.“We need to improve for ourself and for the challenge,” said Emery. “It is challenging away from home, and we need to be competitive.“We are happy to win away and we need to continue that, because we need to improve and be more competitive. Today the team showed us important things.”Ciaran Clark pulled a goal back in stoppage time for Newcastle, but it wasn’t enough to prevent them going down to a defeat to match those they had already suffered by the same scoreline against Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City earlier this season.Newcastle remain in the bottom three with a single point, their joint-worst start to a Premier League campaign after five games.But Magpies manager Rafa Benitez remained confident his side could climb away from danger in their attempt to repeat last season’s impressive 10th-place finish.“It’s a difficult time because you have to win games, but I’m not concerned because I know my team and I know that we can do well,” said Benitez.“We’ve run all the top sides we’ve played close so far this season. Arsenal had two shots on target and they scored two goals,” the Spaniard added.“The fans can see the bigger picture. To lose by a narrow margin against the top sides is something we could expect, but having said that we’re not happy about it.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

ROMER’S REPORT CARD

first_imgRoy Romer possesses an almost evangelical fervor to rejuvenate the Los Angeles Unified School District – along with unwavering conviction that in his first year as superintendent he put the district on the path toward redemption. But in the past year a good many of Romer’s decisions confounded his critics and, on occasion, his supporters. As he enters the second year of a three-year contract, the deepest belief held by district observers is this: The former Colorado governor must cultivate genuine change – and not merely the rhetoric of reform – to justify his $250,000 annual base salary. “The first year, you can plan,” said Yvonne Chan, principal of the Vaughn Next Century Learning Center charter school in San Fernando, and a respected national voice on education reform. “The second year, let’s see it. This coming year is crucial (for Romer).” For all of the expectations, Romer maintains a sense of humor about his mission – impossible as it may be. “I never had a doubt that this was going to be a very difficult job,” he said, laughing. “I got more criticism in (12) months here than I got in (12) years as governor.” Romer intends no disrespect to skeptics who doubted his decisions on teacher contracts, building new schools, the Belmont Learning Center, his strategic plan for the LAUSD – the list goes on. It’s simply that the struggle to save the nation’s second-largest school district from itself invigorates Romer, who at age 72, with his shock of silver hair, sturdy build and gift for gab, could pass for two decades younger. “If you can do it here,” he said with preacher-tinged optimism, “you can do it anywhere.” A portent of the intensified scrutiny Romer can expect to face in the next year came earlier this month. The Los Angeles County Alliance for Student Achievement released results of a citywide survey that showed 70 percent of parents with children in LAUSD schools think the district puts politics before education. The study rankled the sometimes short-fused Romer, who confronted alliance officials. Bill Ouchi, co-chairman of the alliance, gives Romer “pretty good marks” for his first year on the job, yet added that broader support will have to wait “until we see results.” “(That’s) not because Romer doesn’t deserve our confidence, but because we have seen several previous administrations institute new efforts, only to be disappointed by the results.” Romer, the first superintendent in a decade to come from outside the district, spent his first year playing catch-up, learning as he went the ins, outs and pitfalls of the dense LAUSD bureaucracy. He approached the task with the same brio that once enabled him to build up a chain of John Deere dealerships – an endeavor that made him a millionaire – and that propelled him to three terms as governor. Meeting frequently with district leaders, teachers and parents groups – and often working 16-hour days, putting to rest any questions about his stamina – Romer won over many of his earliest detractors. “I wasn’t a Romer supporter to start with, but he’s climbed a very steep learning curve,” said school board member Caprice Young, who represents a district that bridges the Santa Monica Mountains to the east San Fernando Valley. The two still tend to talk “at a higher decibel level than most people,” she added, “but we’re communicating.” Deft political touch Romer, onetime head of the Democratic National Committee, also won plaudits for his deft political touch. He secured additional state and federal funding for the district, thanks in part to his cozy familiarity with legislators both in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. Moreover, he helped beat back an attempt by the California Legislature to appoint a state monitor to oversee the LAUSD. Perhaps most critically, Romer defused tensions between the district and the Latino community, which was still simmering over the ouster of former Superintendent Ruben Zacarias when Romer joined the LAUSD. “When he came in, people saw an elderly white guy from Colorado,” said school board President Genethia Hayes, who has gone from Romer skeptic to supporter. “They thought he would never get the African-American and Latino communities and legislators to believe in him. But he’s done exactly that.” Hayes and Young, however, agreed that Romer overreached by assuming control of contract negotiations with the United Teachers Los Angeles union earlier this year. Both said he failed to realize that pushing for what amounted to an average 15.3 percent pay hike for teachers created a ripple effect, with other district labor unions later seeking – and receiving – raises nearly as large. Placating them, in turn, has forced the district to consider funding cutbacks of school nurses, counselors and technology, Hayes and Young said. “He probably shouldn’t have been leading the negotiating team,” Hayes said. Romer makes no apologies for commandeering the UTLA talks, nor for a hard-driving leadership style that can irritate allies and adversaries alike. “If you have a labor dispute that lasts a year, the bad feelings last for a lot longer,” he said. “I wanted to get the teachers being part of the process of change, and I also wanted to get some power back in managing the district. It was a calculated risk.” Not surprisingly, UTLA President Day Higuchi heaped praise on Romer. “You can’t turn the district around until people are paid decently, and we got the first decent pay raise we’ve seen in a while,” Higuchi said. “And that’s due to him.” Nailed down school sites Education observers also credit Romer for the district’s success in nailing down 82 of 85 sites for new schools that the LAUSD plans to build in the next seven years to ease its space crunch. But Romer’s self-described “full-court press” for more schools again carried a price: Allen Solomon, the district’s chief operating officer, quit in early June after only two months on the job, unhappy with his boss’s insistence on handling facilities issues. Romer’s gung-ho attitude on facilities emerged less than a month into his tenure, when he revived the contentious idea of opening Belmont, the district’s $175 million albatross. In an interview last week he defended his ongoing effort as a reasonable attempt to find space for 4,000 students. His stance drew fire from school board member David Tokofsky. “He’s turned (Belmont) into a warehousing issue, not an education issue. Stuffing kids in a building is not as difficult as educating them,” said Tokofsky, who represents a district that stretches from the Northeast Valley to East Los Angeles. Education reform advocates take a similar view of Romer’s rush to build new schools. While the need for more classrooms is obvious, jamming kids into mammoth schools might hurt more than help, according to David Abel, chairman of the New Schools, Better Neighborhoods civic advocacy project. “We’re building schools to get enough chairs for kids to sit down, but not schools that are going to be attractive to families,” he said. Romer insisted that he prefers smaller schools, but said few options exist in a landlocked district. When asked whether splitting up the district – a prickly issue that he rarely touched during his first year – might solve the dilemma, he demurred. “I’m not here to keep the district from being split,” he said. “I’m here to make sure it runs right.” Romer’s reluctance to define his position could hamper his 13-point strategic plan for the LAUSD, which calls for improving students’ literacy and math skills, better teacher training and more classroom space, among other goals. Reform advocates contend that weighing whether to split the district should rank among the superintendent’s top priorities, yet his five-year plan doesn’t mention the prospect. “You could answer a lot of these other questions by addressing that main question first,” said Stephanie Carter, co-chairwoman of Finally Restoring Excellence in Education, which favors forming two separate San Fernando Valley school districts. Romer knows the doubts will persist as he soldiers on into his second year. That could be why, on a recent tour of Fair Avenue Elementary School in North Hollywood, he took such delight in chatting with students. For an hour, anyway, he could escape the constant shelling.
