UNHCR Representative Lauds Liberians

first_imgThe Country Representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Khassim Diagne has lauded the government and people of Liberia for showing hospitality to Ivorian refugees who entered the country in 2011.Mr. Diagne who expects to leaving Liberia in two weeks from said in an interview with the Daily Observer yesterday that when Ivorian refugees sought refuge in Liberia as a result of their post-election violence, Liberians in the three counties of Nimba, Grand Gedeh and Maryland opened their doors to them.He made specific mention of the Ministries of Foreign and Internal Affairs, and the Liberia Refugees Repatriation and Reintegration Commission (LRRRC) for their efforts to create an acceptable environment for the refugees and the UNHCR.Mr. Diagne said humanitarian roles by the government and citizens make Liberia a pleasant country, and made their work easy.Reflecting on Liberia’s role in the refugee agency, the UNHCR boss said Liberia is a signatory to the 1951 Refugee Convention, the AU Convention on Refugees and has a cooperation agreement with the UNHCR.“When I came to Liberia in 2013, 65,000 out of 220,000 Ivorian refugees had left Liberia as a result of voluntary repatriation. From 65,000 there are 38,000 remaining now as I prepare to leave Liberia,” he noted.He attributed the failure to complete their repatriation to the Ebola crisis which caused the Ivorian government to close its borders with Liberia. “If it were not Ebola, we would have repatriated all the refugees and closed the refugee program, or the remaining number would have been less than it is,” he said.Counting UNHCR’s successes in Liberia, Mr. Diagne said it targeted to repatriate 16,000 refugees but added 20,000.  Furthermore, he said with support from the Liberian government they were able to prevent the deadly Ebola from entering the refugee camps in the three counties.He also indicated that in 2011 there were six refugee camps in Liberia, but was able to consolidate and closed three down.He added that UNHCR was also able to provide sustainable skills to refugees that will not have to depend on international non-governmental organizations for support.He counted on the prevalence of Ebola in Liberia and the surrounding countries as the main challenge because it prevented the voluntary repatriation to meet the targeted goal.The UNHCR Country Representative also named decline in financial support as a challenge during his tour of duty, explaining that when the refugee crisis reaches a peak and begins to diminish, financial support diminishes as well.Moreover, Mr. Diagne noted that it is difficult for them to work during the rainy season because they cannot easily have access to the camps or even repatriate refugees.Commenting on what could be a solution to reducing refugee crisis on the continent of Africa, the UNHCR Representative said political crisis that once served as a condition for refugee crisis is diminishing.He, however, indicated that the new phenomena are terrorism, sabotage and economic migration.Citing some references, Mr. Diagne pointed out terrorism groups, including Boko Haram, al-Shabab, Al-Qaeda movement in northern Mali and migrations of many Africans from the continent to Europe as some conditions that result to refugee crisis.He urged the AU to exert effort to stabilize the condition as political weight in increasing refugees is diminishing and replaced by terrorist activities.Meanwhile, Mr. Diagne will be leaving Liberia for Cameroon and will be based in Yaoundé.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Police asks DPP for legal advice on fate of CID rank

first_imgCop caught planting evidenceThe fate of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) rank at the Reliance Police Station, Canje, Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), who was arrested on Saturday after a series of damning reports of corrupt activities including falsifying evidence, is soon to be determined.According to the police, investigations were conducted last week into the claims by several persons that the cop had been “planting evidence” at various locations and forcing innocent persons to pay him monies to avoid arrest.A file has been compiled on these matters and has been dispatched for legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions on the way forward.Guyana Times was told that the CID rank was placed under close arrest on Friday after the owners of a SuperBet location in Berbice made a report at the police station. The business owners reported that the rank had placed marijuana at their premises during a police search and then accused them of possession of the illicit substance.Guyana Times was told that the CID rank along with another officer had gone to the SuperBet location to conduct a search but while the other officer walked straight into the establishment, the alleged corrupt rank stood at the corner of the building and “threw” an item to the corner.This was the item he picked up during his “search”, which he used to accuse the owners at the SuperBet location of having marijuana on their premises.A source close to the investigation told this publication that when the embattled CID rank confronted the owners about “his find”, they vehemently denied ownership or having knowledge as to where the marijuana could have appeared from or to whom it belonged.However, the police constable continued to press the issue and allegedly told them that they had a choice; either pay him to “drop the matter” or they would be arrested for the marijuana possession.The owners reportedly refused to pay him but rather, went to the police station with Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage showing the rank’s action.According to the police source, upon reviewing the footage provided by the SuperBet owners, it showed the policeman throwing an item at the corner of the establishment as soon as he walked into the yard. The footage also showed him picking up the same item before confronting the owners.A senior police rank, who is probing the incident, told this publication that regardless of what was inside of the package, the search conducted by the CID rank along with his partner had not been authorised. In fact, no other rank at the police station was aware that the duo was going to visit the SuperBet location to conduct a search.As such, the rank was placed under close arrest on Friday.However, on Saturday other persons visited the Reliance Police Station where they also alleged that the same CID rank had “planted evidence” to have them arrested. Persons also purported that he had requested they pay him to avoid being arrested for matters in which they claimed that they were innocent.In light of this, he was re-arrested and is presently in the lock-ups as investigations into the matters continue.Meanwhile, another police source told this publication that the said CID rank had been stationed at the Number 51 Village Police Station, Corentyne, Berbice, earlier this year but after a series of allegations by residents in the area he was transferred to the New Amsterdam Police Station.last_img read more

ERC to hire persons to investigate employment practice at GECOM

first_imgThe Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC) has moved to hire three persons to assist with investigations into the alleged unfair hiring practices at the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM).This newspaper was informed that the three persons are an attorney, a human resource specialist and a special investigator. They will look into the issue and report back to the ERC, and ultimately GECOM.ERC Chairman Dr John Smith has confirmed that the team will start its work shortly, and could wrap up investigations in a month or two, to assist early resolution of this matter.A meeting was already held with the Opposition, wherein these concerns were raised. The ERC will also meet with GECOM Chairman Justice James Patterson for his views on the allegations of ethnic imbalance in the staff composition at GECOM.Dr Smith had said the ERC sought former law enforcement officers or persons with a background in conducting investigations as it was thought that they would be perfect for the assignment.People’s Progressive Party (PPP) GECOM Commissioners Sase Gunraj, Robeson Benn, and Bibi Shaddick have filed complaints with the ERC over alleged biases in employment practices at the GECOM. They argue that a vast majority of the staff at GECOM are persons of one ethnic group.The PPP Commissioners claim that GECOM Chairman James Patterson had prevented Commissioner Robeson Benn, who had initially raised the ethnic bias complaint, from further defending his position; and when challenged, had adjourned a meeting for over half an hour.Their allegations were followed by an earlier statement made by executive member of the PPP, Dr Roger Luncheon, who made allegations against the GECOM regarding the same issue.He said it was brought to his attention that People’s National Congress (PNC) Commissioners are allegedly engaged in a process to eliminate certain candidates applying for advertised positions at the Secretariat.In addition, he said, it would seem that Government Commissioners were aiming at such an objective by resorting to “giving low-to-zero scores to candidates of Indian origin who are shortlisted during the interview process, while providing high-to-100 per cent scores to their preferred candidates”.Further, the former Head of the Presidential Secretariat also alleged that the Commissioners were finding extraneous reasons for eliminating top candidates of Indian origin from appointment to positions.The ERC continued its stakeholder’s engagement on Wednesday when it met with representatives of the Indigenous, East Indian and African Guyanese constituents at Herdmanston Lodge, Georgetown.The aim of the meeting was to get a first-hand account of issues confronting members of the various groups.As a result, important concerns were raised, suggestions were offered, and commitments were made to work together to promote harmony and good relations across the country.The meetings yesterday were all chaired by ERC Deputy Chairman Major General (ret’d) Norman Mc Lean, and six ERC Commissioners were present. The ERC has, to date, met with President David Granger, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, the Private Sector Commission, the Ambassador and team from the European Union (EU), Ambassador and representatives of the ABC diplomatic community, and representatives of the three major religions.Other meetings scheduled for this month include with the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO) and representatives of women and youth constituents.In February 2018, President David Granger swore-in the 10-member ERC after a seven-year hiatus. The members are: Bishop John Smith (Chairperson), Mr Barrington Braithwaite, Ms Ruth Howard, Mr Roshan Khan, Major General (Ret’d) Norman McLean, Pandit Deodat Persaud, Mr Ashton Simon, Ms Rajkumarie Singh, Mr Neaz Subhan and Mr Norris Witter.last_img read more

Vacancy rates in Fort St. John jump to 4 per cent

first_img“Then there’s a major peak at the end of June… when people make their family decisions based on school years“June has always been the time where we receive the most notices, and July is the hardest month to rent in. But demand always rises very strong from about the 15th of Augsut to the 15th of October,” said Powell.According to CMHC, Fort St. John saw about nine more units available for rent in the city year over year, with 1,659 units up for rent, from 1,650 the year prior.Powell estimates there are roughly another 150-plus rental units expected to enter the market in the coming months.The new units will most certainly increase the vacancy rate, but for how long remains to be seen, she said.“The absorption time for 150 units in a community this size typically would take six to eight months, but it really depends. Everything right now is price sensitive,” she said.Advertisement Vacancy rates are up but so are rent prices in Fort St. John, according to new statistics released today.In its spring Rental Market Report, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation pegged apartment vacancy rates in the city for April 2015 at four per cent, up from just 1.5 per cent a year ago.Fort St. John ranks among the most expensive markets in the province, second only to Vancouver in nearly every category measured, and on par with the provincial average.- Advertisement -CMHC pegs the average rent for a two-bedroom unit in Fort St. John at $1,111, with Vancouver just slightly higher at $1,345. The average rent for a one-bedroom unit was pegged at $879, with bachelor suites reported at $751. The price for a three-bedroom-plus unit were at about $1,155, about a $20 bill cheaper than rents reported in Dawson Creek and Kelowna.According to the report, cities across the province that reported a jump in vacancy rates year over year were mostly in areas affected by a decline in resource prices and economic activity.That certainly appears true for the Li-Car Management Group, where owner Lita Powell says the company has seen an year over year increase in the number of units it has available for rent. The company, as with others, have had to adjust to a market correction of sky high oil prices, she said.Advertisement Powell says low vacancy rates are not healthy for landlords as they can’t refurbish their units for prospective tenants.And, with vacancy rates expected to continue to climb, Powell says landlords must have a “social conscience” with tenants in a position of having more selection in the market, noting that it is still difficult for the working poor in the region to meet regional housing prices on minimum wage, or even $15 an hour.“Landlords need to reassess what they need to have for rent opposed to what they want to have for rent,” she said. In April 2014, Li-Car did not have any units for rent, according to Powell, compared to five units it had on the market in April of this year.“Now is a much different story. Now we have in excess of 25,” Powell said, noting that units range from bachelor suites to four bedroom homes.Still, rental demand in Fort St. John has always been seasonal, she notes.“We always see peak notices come in at the end of March, prior to break up, that’s the one little bit of peak,” she said.Advertisement “People aren’t making the money they were, or if they are, they’re being a lot more cautious with it.”Highest vacancy rates reported in Dawson CreekOverall, apartment vacancy rates declined in the province to 1.8 per cent this spring, down from 2.4 per cent last year.Meanwhile, Dawson Creek reported the highest vacancy rates in the province at 8.9 per cent, up from 8 per cent last year. Monthly rents average there for $941, with rents for a bachelor suite around $690, and a two-bedroom around $1,084.The lowest vacancy rates were reported in Parksville at just one per cent. The lowest rents were found in Quesnel, at an average of $610.Advertisementlast_img read more

Barca not a one-man team, says Messi

first_img0Shares0000Lionel Messi came on early in the second half to help Barcelona salvage a draw at home to Athletic Bilbao on Saturday © AFP / Pau BarrenaBARCELONA, Spain, Sep 29 – Lionel Messi says Barcelona are “angry” after their draw at home to Athletic Bilbao on Saturday but insists they do not depend on him to win.Barca were held 1-1 by Bilbao at the Camp Nou to make it three games without a victory, with Messi left out of the starting line-up and brought on early in the second half. It was his shot that Munir El Haddadi turned in for a late equaliser but Oscar de Marcos’ close-range finish before the interval was enough to secure Bilbao a point.The result means Barcelona head to Wembley to face Tottenham on Wednesday on the back of a difficult week, which also saw them draw at home against Girona and lose to Leganes.“Anxious? No, the season is very long, we feel angry after the last two results,” Messi told beIN Sports.“Today I think we created situations to win and we couldn’t do it and we are aware that we have to become stronger defensively and that we cannot score goals in every match.”Barca coach Ernesto Valverde accepted after the game that leaving Messi out with Spurs in mind had been a risk that had failed to pay off.It also left the team open to accusations again of an over-reliance on Messi.“We have a strong team and we don’t depend on any one player,” Messi said.“This is Barcelona, ​​we have enough players not to have to depend on a player. What is said, it hurts after these results but we have to be calm and be aware that this is a very long season.”Barcelona take on Spurs, having made the perfect start in the Champions League by beating PSV Eindhoven 4-0. Messi scored a hat-trick.“On Wednesday we’re going to have a tough match and we need to be focused on qualification already because it is a very complicated group,” Messi added.“We are aware that we have to improve many things, but we need to stay calm, it’s a very long season.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgPaddy WalshPaddy Walsh – sports fan and sports writer is back after a brilliant first column for Donegal Daily last week. The well-known Letterkenny terrace-talker once again puts his unique slant on all things sport in Donegal and further afield. SAM ENCHANTED EVENING Sitting in Hill 16. Not ON it. IN it. The watering hole in Dublin’s Gardiner Street. And this fellow planks himself beside me. Looks familiar but I’ve had a couple and I can’t quite place him even with those bigger than normal ears he has.Murphy talks to a couple of Dublin lads called Maguire!“Evening”, says I. “Evening,” he returns.We get chatting. Asks me where I hail from and when I answer he says: “Ah, been there a couple of times.”“Oh yeah, which part?”. “Every bloody part. Every single nook and cranny of the place. You name it, I’ve been there, mate…”Last visit, he tells me, 2012. “Mad it was. And then even more madder. You’d think they’d never seen me before the way they went on.”But they had seen him before, he tells me. Back in1992. “Mad then too. First time I’d ever been there and I thought I’d never be back again. You’re all fecking crazy, stark raving the whole lot of ye.”Tells me he’s been living in Dublin this past year but fancies a change of scenery.“I’m thinking. Kerry or Donegal. Been in Kerry a fair few times. Thirty-six if I can remember rightly. Nice place. Some quare views…”“Ah, nothing compared to what we have in Donegal,” I reply. “We’ve views that puts Kerry in the half-penny place. Awesome’s too mild for it.” “Aye, true. But they’re not as mad as ye. I was almost damaged property the last time I was in your neck of the woods. Crazy days. And the nights weren’t half mad either…”“Ever been in Leitrim?,” I ask him.“Where?” he asks.“Or Sligo?.” “Might have passed through but never stopped there.”“Here, will you have a drink?”, I enquire.“Hardly touch the stuff. Except once a year when they fill me up with champagne.”Right, says I, climbing off the barstool. “Must go.”“Oh, you heading back to Donegal?.”“That’s right. Be seeing you….”“Aye, you just might, mate. You just might.”Still couldn’t place him but I’m sure I’ll run into him again…WHAT NEXT FOR THE MIDAS MAN?Some speculation on the future of Jim McGuinness should Donegal find themselves in the losers dressing-room come Sunday evening. Or even the winners enclosure.What next for Jim McGuinness?Will he step down? Vacate the post that he was passed over for by the County Board – truly difficult to believe that – a few short years back?A defeat might make his mind up and the likes of Mayo will be looking on from the sidelines with some interest, assuming James Horan doesn’t reverse his recent decision to quit and never minding the fact that a pack of five led by Kevin McStay are in the running to replace him. Or could Glasgow Celtic take a huge gamble and appoint the Glenties man manager in place of current boss, Ronny Deila, who, even at this early stage, doesn’t look up to the task? No sniggering back there, that age old Donegal connection with the Glasgow club could swing a managerial move that would shock both the world of soccer and Gaelic football.Win, lose or draw this Sunday (and I’d be getting odds on the latter if I was a betting man), most Donegal supporters – all of them let’s face it – will be hoping he stays on for another crack at the ultimate title.Even if Declan Bonner – what a job he’s done with the Minors – might be waiting patiently to step up to the plate.GREENE AND BLUEMany moons ago – and a few more manys along with that one – on a family outing to Downings one Sunday afternoon, I was listening eagerly to the car radio waiting for a result from a Finn Harps away trip to Shamrock Rovers.And finally the R.T.E. sports presenter of the time – a time when there was no internet or social media to catch up on these things – passed proceedings along to Milltown where the familiar voice of Philip Greene sat ready to reveal all.He didn’t quite share the masterful vocal intonations of the recently deceased B.B.C. sports announcer, James Alexander Gordon, who could disclose a result and whether your favourite side had won, lost or drawn, just by the way he stressed the name of the home team, but, nevertheless, our Philip on this occasion gave it away as soon as he opened his mouth.For it was like he had just been given the news that his home had been burgled and his prized collection of Shamrock Rovers match programmes had all been dumped in the garden and burnt to a cinder. I was already dancing a jig on Downings beach when he announced, in seriously doleful tones, that Harps had won by a goal to nil, his beloved Hoops undone by the team from the North-West. He still remained one of my favourite broadcasters of that era simply because of his tendency to drift into describing the birds flying over the pitch or the respective colours of the goalkeepers’ jerseys during a match report but also, more specifically, when he provided the good news (for those of us with blue and white blood at least) that Harps had won in his own backyard.I was reminded of that afternoon last Sunday, this time while walking the dog in Ards Forest Park and keeping an ear out for the latest from Avondale United where Harps were attempting to make it into the semi-finals of the F.A.I. Cup.This time the name of the Cork sports reporter who conveyed the news on R.T.E. that Mickey Funston had given the Donegal side the lead escaped me but his tone suggested that he too might have been the victim of a break-in such was his mournful approach to delivering the news.I didn’t hear him on again but, no doubt, there was a bit more joy when the Munster League side drew level with thirteen minutes remaining, resulting in tonight’s scheduled replay at Finn Park.As Ollie Horgan stressed, Harps have still a lot of work to do to reach that semi-final but that draw in Cork might have been for the best given that it will mean some much required gate receipts even if the two sides are up against, not just one another, but the rival attraction of Manchester City and Bayern Munich on the T.V.The die-hard Harps followers will certainly be there and hopefully the fringe fans might also come along in their hundreds as Harps bid to hit the last four.Incidentally, what with all the green and gold fluttering about the place, it was nice to see the Bank of Ireland on Letterkenny’s Main Street lend their backing to the Harps cause with a large cluster of blue and white balloons framing the front entrance this week…!UNITED IN SPORTThe Sky Sports cameras will have caught an element of true sporting unity in Letterkenny last week.Former South African rugby captain, John Smit, was being interviewed along with a couple of the Wallace brothers, on the balcony of the clubrooms at The Glebe shared by both Letterkenny Rugby Club and Letterkenny Gaels, discussing the fund-raising Rugby Legends cycle which ended in Malin and, no doubt, his eye will have been diverted to the activity on the pitches below.In one corner, the local rugby lads were being put through their paces; further up the field, an even younger set of hurlers were competing in a mini-game; and at the same time on the Gaels pitch, the footballers were parading their skills.As was pointed out more than once on the evening, you don’t get that sort of scene everywhere – rugby and the G.A.A. operating in tandem and doing so with none of the bitterness that might have greeted such a scenario away back in the distant dark days of the ban and all that entailed.Smit, who holds the most international caps for his country at 111, may not have appreciated the relevance of it but his Irish rugby colleagues will certainly have.That SKY Sports coverage will, so I’m told, be broadcast during the forthcoming November internationals and credit to all who took part in the charity cycle including a healthy batch of locals.TENNIS REFERENDUMIf I had a vote in tomorrow’s Scottish Referendum, it would certainly go to the ‘yes’ camp.Yeah, says you, important political move… independence…. going it alone…break off from the mothership.Well, no, it would just be to see how Sue Barker and the rest of them at the B.B.C. would be able to cover Andy Murray at Wimbledon without mentioning the “great British hope’ in every second sentence.FINAL THOUGHTSA warning this week from the I.S.P.C.A. on the painting of animals with the Donegal colours ahead of Sunday’s Big Final.Painting sheep doesn’t have to be ba-baric!A bit too late as I’ve already slapped a couple of dabs of green on the old goldfish.Meanwhile, if the residents of Bonagee in Letterkenny could just sound a foghorn or some other noisy instrument every so often during the game on Sunday it might, just might, prevent a certain local man from falling asleep as he did for the entire duration of the semi-final clash against the Dubs. No names mentioned, of course, but he’ll be scratching his beard wondering how this one got in.And finally, the best of luck – though luck alone won’t do it – to both the Minors and Seniors in their respective Finals against the Kingdom.Get those bonfires ready but don’t set a match to them just yet.WALSHY ON WEDNESDAY – THE DONEGAL DAILY SPORTS COLUMN was last modified: September 17th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:donegalPaddy WalshSportWalshy on Wednesdaylast_img read more
