SOCU has opened a Pandora’s box – Nandlall

first_img…by violating confidentiality of Cabinet meetingsA few days ago, several Ministers of the former Government were questioned by the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU) in what has been described as the Pradoville probe. Could this course of action have established a precedent for successive Governments?The former PPP Government Ministers making their way into SOCU Headquarters and being led by their Attorney, Anil NandlallFormer Attorney General Anil Nandlall certainly thinks so. According to Nandlall, in his recent writings, the sacrosanct nature of cabinet meetings dates back many years, and is in place across several countries.“This week, SOCU has done that which may be unprecedented in the history of the Commonwealth: its officers grilled a number of members of the Cabinet of Guyana of 2010 in relation to policies discussed and decisions taken at a Cabinet meeting held during that year.”Nandlall cited several cases, including Conway V Rimmer and the text Cabinet responsibility to legislature (India) by G. C. Malhotra, to make the point that cabinet must be insulated from undue interference. He also cited Australia, explaining that when a government changes, the minutes of cabinet meetings are archived for 25 years.“Cabinet is created by Article 106 (1) of the Constitution, which prescribes its composition to be the President, the Prime Minister, Vice Presidents, and such other Ministers as may be appointed to it by the President. Its functions are, ‘to aid and advise the President in the general direction and control of the Government of Guyana, and shall be collectively responsible therefore to Parliament,” Nandlall stated, quoting from Article 106 (2) of the Constitution.According to Nandlall, SOCU has breached this principle. He revealed that when the former Ministers were questioned last week, SOCU officers had in their possession minutes from cabinet meetings dating back to 2010. And it was based on those minutes that they were questioned.“By so doing, wittingly or unwittingly, a dangerous precedent has been set, with no lines drawn. It is now open to every future Government of this country to launch Police investigations in respect of policies and decisions collectively made by past Presidents and their Cabinet,” Nandlall said.“This must be ominous for this Government, as it has engaged in so many transactions that can easily be the subject of Police investigations. This can only lead to greater political acrimony and deeper cleavages in an already divided society. What is certain is an appointment to Cabinet has now become hazardous,” Nandlall explained.QuestionedOn Wednesday morning, former Public Works Minister Robeson Benn and former Labour Minister Manzoor Nadir found themselves the latest to be questioned at SOCU’s headquarters.The duo was represented by former Education Minister Priya Manickchand, who disclosed that she, too, was called in for questioning regarding the matter on Tuesday.Speaking to media operatives after being questioned, Benn revealed that he explained to the SOCU investigators that during the period surrounding the sale of the lands, a Minister had been murdered, and so Government did what “needed to be done” at the time.He was referring to the assassination of former Agriculture Minister Satyadeo Sawh, his family and security personnel. Sawh and two of his siblings were gunned down in April 2006, shortly after they had returned to the Minister’s La Bonne Intention (LBI), East Coast Demerara home.Benn, who does not own property at the Sparendaam location, told media reporters that the overriding issue had to do with the stability of the country, to make sure that the President (Bharrat Jagdeo) and other members of the Cabinet get a home in a secure and safe environment away from criminal activities.Last year March, former President Bharrat Jagdeo and former Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Luncheon, were arrested, while several other former Government Ministers under the PPP Administration were detained by SOCU officials who were probing misappropriation of State assets.The arrest and detention was in connection with an ongoing probe into the acquisition of lands at “Pradoville 2”, among other things. Days after that, President David Granger declared that the former Guyanese Leader should not have been treated the way he was.In the past, SOCU has detained several former prominent Government officials in regard to their connection with the Pradoville 2 scheme. The reason these persons are being questioned is because they purchased property at the Sparendaam seawall area.The current Administration contends that the transaction is a criminal act because of the belief that the land was sold below market value. However, the PPP has argued that subsidised housing has always been part of the legacy of the PPP, and that countless Guyanese have benefited from lands sold below market value.last_img read more

Hu’s offense showing signs of life

first_img“He has probably picked up 10 pounds this winter,” said Mike Easler, who was Hu’s hitting coach at Double-A Jacksonville last season and will be again if Hu moves to Triple-A Las Vegas. “He was a little small last year and lacked strength. I can tell he just has more confidence in himself. He looks so much better offensively.” Hu also showed some of his characteristic flash, going behind the bag to pick a grounder hit by Josh Rabe in the seventh and teaming with longtime double-play partner and fellow defensive wizard Tony Abreu to turn it into an inning-ending force at second. Hu also lunged far to his right and onto the grass to stop a smash by Chris Heintz in the eighth that Heintz nevertheless beat out. Although Hu isn’t a burner in the classic tradition of slightly built middle infielders, he does have enough speed to steal the occasional base if he picks his spots well, and he is a smart runner. Injury updates Left-hander Joe Beimel, who felt discomfort in his elbow after pitching a shaky eighth inning in Monday’s win over Boston, played catch back in Vero Beach on Tuesday morning and felt fine. Little said Beimel will stay on his regular program unless the problem recurs. In other injury news, shortstop Rafael Furcal (right shoulder) is almost ready to return, although Little said it won’t happen in either of today’s split-squad games. Meanwhile, utility man Marlon Anderson (right elbow) remains sidelined indefinitely. Little said he is confident both players still will get enough at-bats in these final 3 1/2 weeks before opening day to be ready for the season. FORT MYERS, Fla. – The knock against Chin-lung Hu has always been, well, that there is no knock. There are some observers, in fact, who wonder whether the skinny kid with the electrifying glove will ever hit enough to play in the majors. But the skinny kid isn’t so skinny anymore. The suddenly offensive Hu beat out two infield singles during the Dodgers’ Grapefruit League game on Tuesday – a 7-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins before 7,015 at Hammond Stadium – and finished 3 for 4, raising his spring average to .444 (4 for 9). center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Millen: Pardew to be Crystal Palace manager by Friday

first_img1 Caretaker manager Keith Millen expects Alan Pardew to be installed as Crystal Palace boss by Friday.Former Palace midfielder Pardew watched the Eagles’ 0-0 draw at Aston Villa ahead of his anticipated move from Newcastle.The draw failed to lift Palace out of the Premier League relegation zone but Millen confirmed Pardew was pleased with the point after coming into the dressing room after the game.And Millen, caretaker manager since Neil Warnock was sacked last month, is just waiting for Pardew’s appointment to be rubber stamped.He said when asked if all was on track: “I think so, I don’t think he would have been at the game if there was a problem, he wouldn’t have been sitting in the stands.“We are preparing for Alan to come in tomorrow to start working. We have a big game against Dover on Sunday so we have to get our heads around that one.“I kept the lads in the know from what I knew from the chairman. Before the game when we left the hotel we weren’t sure but then I got a message to say Alan was coming.“He didn’t have any input during the game or before but he came in after and was pleased and proud with what he saw.“He said we need to add more to our game to score more goals and win football matches but it’s a good start for Alan to see us.”Millen is also set to stay with Palace after Pardew asked him to continue at the club.He said: “As the weeks go by he’ll analyse what we do. We have to learn what he wants and hopefully we can do that.“If Alan wants to bring in people I’m sure he will, we haven’t got a big staff but we work hard and are organised.” Alan Pardew with Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish last_img read more

first_imgCatriona McGlynn and her daughter Ameila Kate pouring some water from her house tap. (North West Newspix)A Co Donegal mother-of-two has claimed that untold damage is being done to people’s health because of the poor quality of the Letterkenny water supply.Catriona McGlynn has suffered serious thyroid problems which she blames directly on the quality of water in her hometown.Her claims come as the Environmental Protection Agency continue a court case against Irish Water who have now admitted it will be 2018 to upgrade the Leterkenny water treatment plant. The pair and upgrade works are to prevent outbreaks of E.coli cryptosporidium which targets children and the elderly.Ms McGlynn, from Elmwood Downes, was so concerned about the quality of her household water that she bought herself a water distiller.Catriona is convinced that untold damage is being done to the nation’s health through a sub-standard quality of water.In the past she has suffered from thyroid problems and is convinced ithas been directly caused by the over-use of fluoride in her householdwater supply. Ms McGlynn told Donegal Daily “I have no doubt about it. There is a direct link between fluoride and thyroid issues and I have suffered from a thyroid problem which I would 100% directly attribute to the fluoride waste product our Government is putting in our drinking way.“And I think a lot of other people across Donegal are suffering from thyroid problems because of the quality of water,” she said.Catriona, who is in her late 30s, invested more than €200 in a waterdistiller and also a shower filter before the arrival of her daughter18 months ago.“It wasn’t cheap but it was a decision I made for my family and their health.”And she believes that the poor quality of water in Donegal and othercounties across Ireland is causing until damage to the nation’shealth.“People with compromised immune systems can die by drinking water withcryptosporidium in it and so it is very dangerous for people with MS,for example. “As somebody who worked with Multiple sclerosis Ireland in the past,I’m aware that Donegal has one of highest rates in Europe. Is fluoridea factor in this, I wonder,” she asked.Catriona, who is a qualified Clinical Hypno-Psychotherapist, haseducated herself about the quality of water she is putting into herbody and hopes other people will do the same.She believes that despite Government advice, people are still beingleft vulnerable to the dangers of a poor quality water supply acrossDonegal and the rest of Ireland.“The cryptosporidium parasite found in Donegal water is another issue.In order to protect us from cryptosporidium, they tell us to boil thewater but doing this concentrates the amount of fluoride, so no matterwhat you do you will be compromising your health,” she said. Although she has now tried to protect her children from the poorquality of water supply, Catriona said her son’s health is now out ofher hands.“My son is off to college in September. I won’t be able to protect hiswater supply there but this wouldn’t be a problem if our governmentcared about our health,” she said.DONEGAL WOMAN CLAIMS WATER SUPPLY IS CAUSING UNTOLD DAMAGE TO PEOPLE’S HEALTH was last modified: August 11th, 2015 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:Catriona McGlynndonegalIrish Waterletterkennywater supplylast_img read more
