Ebola Outbreak to Reduce Arrest, Detention

first_imgWith the rapid spread of the Ebola epidemic, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia has appealed to magistrates (judges)   throughout the country to be flexible under the law in sending people to jail.Chief Justice Francis Korkpor was quick to point out that he was not ordering judges to perform their duties outside the scope of the law, but to use what he considered “discretionary powers” in line with section 10.12 and 13.5 of the Criminal Procedure Law.The Chief Justice made the appeal yesterday when he met with magistrates and the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) at his Temple of Justice office.According to him, the request for that power must be done on a case by case basis,  considering the fact and circumstance surrounding the matter. “This is to ensure that the judiciary plays one of the essential roles in containing the deadly Ebola disease in the country,” the Chief Justice said in support of his appealed.Frowning on magistrates that are involved in abandoning their respective courts, the Judiciary head stressed, “Any magistrate that does not take time into consideration and absent themselves from their responsibilities would be considered as non-essential staff.”He warned that severe administrative measures would be instituted against those magistrates involved  into such practice.”Updating the magistrates and the MOJ about recent decision regarding jury’s sequestration, the Chief Justice explained that “the judiciary has held deliberations with the National Bar Association (NBA) and the issue of the reduction of the number of jurors and their sequestration was addressed based on the out-break of the Ebola virus.”He continued, “During the discussion we agreed to reduce the number of jurors from 15 to nine, with three alternatives out of that same number.” He praised what he considered as the “cordial working relationship between  the Ministry and the Bar regarding efforts in the fight against the disease.For their part, the magistrates promised that they would exercise maximum judicial power as enshrined in the law, stating “We will use the discretionary powers, especially when it comes to arrest, summons and detention of defendants,  taking into consideration the Ebola crisis.” In separate remarks, Montserrado County Attorney, Cllr.

Biker killed in crash on 210

first_imgAZUSA – A fatal crash involving a motorcycle and a stalled vehicle on the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway tied up traffic for hours Tuesday as investigators pieced together the incident just west of the Citrus Avenue offramp. William McKernan, 37, of Costa Mesa died instantly when his red 2001 Yamaha motorcycle struck an abandoned Honda in the car-pool lane at 5:24 a.m., CHP spokesman Officer Edmund Zorilla said. Police continued to search for the driver of the Honda, who fled the scene after crashing into the car-pool lane center divider just minutes before the crash. “The driver of the Honda is going to have major head injuries,” Zorilla said. “So we’re doing our follow up.” Officials pronounced McKernan, who was pinned between his motorcycle and the stalled car, dead at the scene. His body was taken to the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner for an autopsy. Zorilla said he did not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in McKernan’s death. Zorilla confirmed McKernan was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The driver of the Honda could face misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run, Zorilla said. More serious charges could result when the follow-up investigation is forwarded to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The CHP issued a SigAlert following the incident. Traffic on the 210 remained tied up in both directions for several hours. Police believe McKernan was heading home after leaving City of Hope in Duarte. A visitor’s badge for the hospital, issued Monday, remained pinned to his shirt, Zorilla said. frank.girardot@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717last_img read more

Government shoots down AR-15 petition

first_imgThe local MP also believes the outcome of the US Presidential Election this fall could have an impact on the issue going forward. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – It carried more than 25,000 signatures, but the Trudeau government has shot down the AR-15 e-petition launched by Marc Bennett of Corner Brook, Newfoundland, and sponsored by Prince George/Peace River/Northern Rockies MP, Bob Zimmer.This is the petition tabled in the Commons this summer calling on the government to reclassify the rifle as an unrestricted firearm.The petitioners wrote, “This rifle is the most versatile hunting rifle in the world”…adding…“The calibre can easily be changed to meet lawful provincial hunting requirements from small game to big game animals, without the need to purchase multiple gaming rifles .”- Advertisement -However, the Liberal government was having no part of their arguments with Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale saying he has no intention of invoking a section of Canada’s criminal code to reclassify the firearm as unrestricted.While not surprised Mr. Zimmer did find the government response troubling, especially Mr. Goodale’s commitment to put the decision making authority about weapons classification back into the hands of RCMP.However, Canada’s restricted gun ownership increased nine and half percent last year and Mr. Zimmer says the firearms debate is far from over.Advertisementlast_img read more

PRIEST GIVEN 27 PER CENT SHARE OF HOME OF EX-LOVER

first_imgFr RosbothamA GAY Catholic priest has today been awarded 27 per cent of a home he once shared with his lover, former Franciscan friar Hugo Crawford.Rose Cottage, in Letterbarrow, is to be now divided, with Mr Crawford getting a 73 per cent share of any future sale. Judge Keenan Johnson told Donegal Town Circuit Court today that he had calculated ownership of the property based on the amount of money he believed each party had contributed to the property.He found Father Rosbotham, a curate in Ballina, Co Mayo, had made a contribution of €22,500 to the cottage whilst Mr Crawford’s contribution amounted to just over €59,000.The court heard yesterday how Fr Rosbotham and Mr Crawford met in the 1980s when they were both Franciscan brothers.Mr Crawford quit the order and paid IR£25k for the house in 1994.In 2000 and 2002 he had applied to add Fr Rosbotham’s name to the title deeds as by that stage the priest had also left the Franciscans – which has a vow of poverty and a ban on ownership of property – and had become a curate in Ballina.Judge Johnson said before delivering his judgement: “They are both clear very decent men who still have considerable regard for each other. They have dedicated their lives to helping others, Fr Rosbotham as a priest and Mr Crawford as a carer.“I think it is unfortunate that this matter had to be aired in court and it certainly strikes me as a case that was tailor-made for mediation. Had the parties agreed to mediation, the matter could have been dealt with in private, with each of the parties retaining ownership of the ultimate resolution.”PRIEST GIVEN 27 PER CENT SHARE OF HOME OF EX-LOVER was last modified: October 17th, 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:Donegal Town Circuit Courtfather rosbothamgayhouseHugo CrawfordPriestlast_img read more

Donegal Senator calls on Irish government restore co-funding of the A5

first_imgDonegal Sinn Féin Senator Pádraig Mac Lochlainn has called on the Irish Government to “step up to the plate” on the funding of the A5 road upgrade, vital to economic growth in Donegal and the North West.He was speaking as the first stage of the project from Newbuildings to Strabane looks set to get underway in January.Senator Mac Lochlainn said: “That we have got to this stage is testament to the unrelenting determination of the late Martin McGuinness. “In 2011, when the then Minister for Transport, Leo Varadkar removed Irish Government co- funding for the project, Martin stood up to them and demanded that they honour the promises made in the 2006 St Andrews Agreement.“Myself and Pearse Doherty were part of the Sinn Féin delegation to those negotiations that led to that commitment and promise. And following Martin’s direct challenge to the then Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, the Irish Government re-committed partial funding of €50 million euro over a two year period.“Now, over six years later, the Irish Government has still not restored that co-funding commitment of £400 million sterling”.He concluded: “So while the vital A5 project commencing construction in January is good news for Donegal, unless the Irish Government finally steps up to the plate, the full project and the immense potential for our entire region can not be realised.” Donegal Senator calls on Irish government restore co-funding of the A5 was last modified: November 28th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:a5 roadSenator Padraig Mac LochlainnSinn Feinlast_img read more
