The arrest and subsequent detention of Thomas Jucontee Woewiyu by the U.S. Government is pointing to a hope dash as his political interest back home now seems to have a bleak future.Tom Woewiyu had announced that he would contest the upcoming mid-term October Senatorial election for Grand Bassa County against the wishes and aspirations of the incumbent, Gbehzongar Finely, who currently serves as the Senate Pro-Tempore of the 53rd National Legislature.Mr. Woewiyu, upon his return from the U.S. last year to Liberia, unveiled his political intention where he had wanted to contest for the senatorial seat for Grand Bassa County.The former Minister of Defense of one of Liberia’s notorious rebel factions, National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL), appeared before a 3-federal judge panel with one judge leading the charge. Mr. Woewiyu was brought into the court, sandwiched by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, who arrested him.Upon his arrest last week, Thomas Jucontee Weoewiyu was identified as the former Liberian Minister of National Defense and a spokesman of the erstwhile rebel NPFL.If he is found guilty, he faces a US$4 million fine and a 110-year imprisonment sentence.In line with his arrest order, Tom has been described a ‘flight risk,’ meaning he would escape to Liberia if his bail is filed. He was subsequently denied bill.Based on this, the U.S. denied him (Woewiyu) bail. He has already been charged with ‘perjury,’ lying on his citizenship application by failing to disclose his alleged affiliation with a “violent political group in Liberia,” during the height of the country’s civil crisis, which lasted over a decade. Woewiyu served as Defense Minister in Charles Taylor’s former rebel National Patriotic Reconstruction Assembly Government (NPRAG), which then controlled “greater Libria.” Upon his arrest, his immigration lawyer, Raymond Basso, said his client amended his citizenship application to include his participation in the Taylor regime. But Linwood C. Wright, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Philadelphia, said Judge Judith Faith Angell denied bail, “because she believed Woewiyu might try to leave (runaway) from the U.S. should he be bailed.“There was a detention hearing and Woewiyu was ordered detained by a U.S. Magistrate. The magistrate found that he (Woewiyu) was a ‘flight risk,’ and so she ordered him detained pending his trial,” Wright said.Raymond Basso, Woewiyu’s immigration lawyer, told VOA last week the case against his client was purely an immigration matter, and that it was a “misconception” (mistaken belief) to suggest that he was being charged with war crimes.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
No-confidence voteThe Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana (FITUG) issued a call for political maturity at a time when the nation is in uncharted waters following the historic no-confidence vote in the National Assembly on Friday last.FITUG on Monday acknowledged that the notion of such a motion was not new and has long been a constitutional feature; however, it was the first time that such a motion has been successfully charted.The Federation said it was heartened to learn that the Government has accepted the result of the vote and not too long from now national and regional elections will be held.“We, at this time, look to the Guyana Elections Commission to fulfil its mandate and deliver an election that is free and fair and free of fear too. Our organisation, of course, will be following developments on this front. We also recognised the statements of Leader of the Opposition, Dr Bharrat Jagdeo, who has committed to dialogue with the Administration as our nation finds itself in uncharted waters. This, we believe, is a step in the right direction. We noted too that President David Granger has signalled his willingness to meet and we hope that such meeting could be soon convened, recognising the medical treatment the President is receiving at this time. We certainly hope those discussions will yield fruits in the interest of the Guyanese people,” FITUG said.On Friday last, the Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) successfully tabled a motion against the David Granger-led A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Coalition Government. The PPP/C, which has 32 of the 65 seats in the National Assembly, was able to successfully sway AFC’s Charrandas Persaud, ultimately leading to the collapse of the Government.Persaud, after his vote, said that he was pleased with his decision and noted that there were a lot of missteps by the Government that led him to supporting the motion. He cited the closure of the sugar estates among other things that led to his conscience vote as opposed to toeing the party line.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo had first announced the no-confidence motion on the heels of devastating losses in the Local Government Elections (LGE) for the coalition Government and went ahead to file the motion with the National Assembly on November 15, 2018.The PPP/C had contended that the motion was lodged based on concrete reasons upon which the Guyanese people had rejected the People’s National Congress (PNC)-led coalition. It pointed to the thousands of jobs that have been lost as a result of the closure of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) estates.In addition, the Party referred to the various scandals that have erupted under the Administration. These include the single sourcing of the feasibility contract for the new Demerara River crossing, the single sourcing of a drug bond and the single sourcing of drug procurement contracts.The Party further noted the numerous breaches of fiscal laws flagged by the Audit Office of Guyana in its reports, as well as the lack of accountability in the D’Urban Park Project, with the Auditor General having to launch a special probe into the development.The depletion of Guyana’s gold and foreign reserves was also highlighted. In fact, a report from the central bank earlier this year had indicated that Guyana’s net foreign reserves, held by the Bank in foreign currency notes, have fallen to their lowest point since 2008.
Following a request by Attorney-at-Law Anil Nandlall, the Police Complaints Authority has begun investigating the death of Lalbachan Bachan, who died at the Suddie Police Station earlier this month.Nandlall, who is representing the family of the now dead man on Monday explained that statements were taken from Bachan’s relatives on July 16, 2019, by the Police Complaints Authority. Further, he added that the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Ali-Hack, has acknowledged a letter sent to her by him on behalf of the family of the now dead man.Dead: Lalbachan BachanIn her response, dated July 9, 2019, Ali-Hack stated, “I hereby inform you that I have directed the acting Crime Chief, Mr Kingston, to comply with the Police Complaints Authority Act and that the Chairman, Police Complaints Authority is to supervise the investigations as prescribed by Section 14 of the Police Complaints Authority Act, Chapter 17:02”.Meanwhile, the former Attorney General pointed out in his statement that the Top Cop, Leslie James, is yet to respond to his request for a thorough investigation into the man’s death.The appeal for an investigation into the death of the 39-year-old man was made by Nandlall on behalf of the deceased’s wife, Samanta Bachan, who publicly made calls for justice.These calls mounted after the post-mortem examination revealed that he died from asphyxiation, and photographs of the deceased demonstrated multiple injuries about the body.Lalbachan Bachan’s children, wife and relatives during a protest in July calling for justiceBachan was arrested on June 28, 2019, at Maria’s Lodge, Essequibo Coast. He died during the night on June 30.The widow recalled that her husband was arrested on June 12 for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was placed on $20,000 bail at the Suddie Police Station and was told to appear before the Suddie Magistrate’s Court on June 20. The matter was adjourned and he was scheduled to return to court on June 28. However, after he failed to attend court, an arrest warrant was issued for him.According to the widow, Police visited their home on the same day and placed him in the lock-ups at the Suddie Police Station. She said that she was not allowed to see her husband until the morning of June 30. The widow recalled that her husband inquired about their kids and complained of feeling unwell.On July 1, she recounted that as the family was preparing to visit the police station, they received news that he had died. She explained that she rushed to the Suddie Public Hospital where she observed her husband bleeding from his head, which was also swollen.After the incident, Police, in a release to the media, claimed that Bachan was the lone prisoner in the cell. A post-mortem examination conducted by Dr Nehaul Singh on the man’s body gave the cause of death as asphyxiation.The widow’s lawyer is arguing that the Guyana Police Force (GPF) is responsible for the safety of persons in their custody and must be answerable when such situations occur.Moreover, he told this publication that it is illegal for relatives to be prevented by the police from visiting their imprisoned family member.

You’re all set! • Photo Gallery: La Habra vs. Sonora LA HABRA – La Habra High School girls soccer player Casey Kiehl is known more for setting up goals rather than scoring them. “I don’t know what happened,” the senior midfielder said. “I’m usually more of someone who (gets the assists). But we get really (fired) up for this game (against Sonora). And since this was my last one, I just wanted to step up.” So did the Highlanders, who also received goals from Carly Clements and Laura Cole. La Habra, which improved to 15-5-3 overall and 6-3 in the Freeway League, held a 14-8 advantage in shots. “I just wanted this group of girls to believe they could win this year,” first-year La Habra coach Joel Carlisle said. “It had been kind of building, building and building. “Today was another example of (this team) just coming together.” The Highlanders built a 2-0 lead by halftime before Kiehl scored goals in the 56th, 68th and 79th minutes for a 5-0 lead.

Evelyn Cusack: Scathing attack on alternative weather forecastingRTE TV weather woman Evelyn Cusack has launched on air dismissal of claims that a postman can predict the weather by looking at nature or animals.The astonishing dismissal of Michael Gallagher’s theories came just hours after the Glenfin man predicted a bitterly cold December – and a White Christmas.Michael insisted on Friday that his observations of sheep in the fields and of plants and insects led him to believe snow is on the way. Forecaster Cusack didn’t name Gallagher in her TV weather report – but her explanation came hours after Michael’s predictions went national on the internet.She took the opportunity after the Nine O’Clock news to dismiss any suggestions that animals or nature could predict the weather (or earthquakes!)“People have been asking if we will have a cold winter, and I’m afraid we can’t tell you that as forecasting only goes between five and ten days ahead,” she told viewers.“But some people ask why we don’t use signs from nature? For example can animals predict not only the weather but earthquakes. “Well I’m afraid not! There have been studies done,” she said.And she finished her report by quoting scientist Carl Sagan (and displayed the quote on screen).Sagan said: “It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion however satisfying and reassuring.”Boom!Scathing 2: Evelyn quotes scientist Carl Sagan!RTE WEATHER PRESENTER’S SCATHING ATTACK ON POSTIE MICHAEL’S ‘WHITE CHRISTMAS’ CLAIMS was last modified: November 16th, 2013 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:donegal daily weatherEvelyn CusackRTEsnowwhite Christmas
