Seized items are returned to prison officers – Commander Hicken

first_imgDeadly Prison RiotAs the Commission of Inquiry continues into the deadly Camp Street Prison fire, A Division Commander Clifton Hicken has revealed that whenever police seize certain items from inmates, they are returned to the Guyana Prison Service.Commander of A Division Clifton HickenIn his testimony to Commissioners on Thursday, Commander Hicken stated that police ranks would normally search for “arms and ammunition” and noted that whenever they see items such as phones and weapons, they are returned to prison officers.These responses were obtained under cross-examination of witness by Attorney representing two inmates, Dexter Todd, who suggested to the Commander that the Police has “always found items in the prison that ought not to be there.”“We would have found items in the prison –the prison service tells you if its authorized or not… whenever we found items like phone, improvised weapons and the rest of it, it is handed over to the prison service – that’s the SOP [Standard Operating Procedure],” Hicken testified.It was also stated that these searches are conducted once per month but dates vary according to the contributing factors at the time. One of the mandatory searches was conducted just two days before the 3 March riots.Hicken was further questioned as to if on a policy level, information is filtered to the police as to what should or should not be in the cell to which the Commander responded in the affirmative.However Hicken explained that he did not brief himself on the report of the last search conducted and as such was not inclined to answer any further questions on the matter.On 5 April the Commission heard the shocking revelation that prison wardens are the ones that sell mobile phones to prisoners. This was the testimony of Carl Brown, an inmate who is currently severing 13 years for murder. It was explained that prisoners can purchase the mobile devices for $7000 in the Camp Street Prison.Brown told Commissioners that he has his seventh phone since being behind bars, and admitted that he would often update his Facebook account about life in prison.Brown had also told the Commission that whenever a phone is seized, a fee is paid and the phone is returned.last_img read more

Debbah Confident of Grand Bassa Senate Victory

first_imgLiberia’s former celebrated football star, James Salinsa Debbah, is positive about winning the Senator’s Seat for Grand Bassa County in the upcoming 2014 Special Senatorial Election.It had been speculated he would run in Montserrado in the ensuring Special Senatorial Elections on October-2014— a run he had denied up to this point.On Saturday, in an exclusive interview in the Port City of Buchanan, Debbah, 42, told the Daily Observer that he is poised to be the ‘better candidate.’His statement was made during the county’s official celebration of football and basketball trophies they had captured, just under a fortnight ago.The former Mighty Barrolle and Lone Star striker said that his success would be based on the love the people of Grand Bassa County have for him.Salinsa did not say which Party’s ticket he intends to run on in Grand Bassa County’s Senatorial Race, giving the impression of a candidacy built on hope up to this point. Clearly, he will have to get busy soon if he is serious about what he wants to do.In the 2005 and 2011 elections, the  player was linked to the Liberty Party (LP), but because of his connection to Ambassador George Weah, the political leader of the Congress for Democratic Change, (CDC), it is speculated that he may run on the CDC ticket, if he is left out in the cold during the LP’s convention.Debbah’s statement comes ahead of his petition ceremony, which is tentatively scheduled for next month.”Let me say, I am contesting the Senatorial Race for Grand Bassa County and I am positive of winning. It is obvious that my people will vote for me,” Debbah said.Known as ‘Salinsa’ during his football playing days, Debbah is regarded as Liberia’s most popular football personality after George M. Weah, FIFA 1995 World Player of the Year and African football legend.Meanwhile, Debbah has frowned on the program committee of the official celebration of trophies in Buchanan for not recognizing, ‘technicians’ during the program.He said the exclusion of the coaches, Mr. Garmondeh Karnga, Cllr. Theophilus Gould and others, (including him) who contributed ‘tactically’ to the success of the teams, was not correct.He told newsmen over the weekend during the official celebration of the football and basketball trophies, that their exclusion had a ‘political undertone,’ which he believed was mainly intended to promote would-be candidates in the forthcoming Senatorial Election.“We too, worked and motivated the team to win amid financial and moral constraints,” Debbah said. “We all are supposed to be recognized publicly.”Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Program Committee, T. Nelson Williams told newsmen that the technicians were thanked and recognized duly. Debbah, however, did not show any interest in attending any of the meetings.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Condo gets go-ahead from City

first_imgAccording to Grantmyre, having a sixth floor allows for the top floor residents to have a nice view and makes those suites easier to sell. Furthermore, having the extra apartments would ensure the building is actually profitable.The condo-style apartments are expected to attract a mature, upper middle class clientele due to the prices of the suites. Construction on the new Pallisades Apartment Building has been given the green light.Fort St. John City Council approved a motion on Monday – after a public meeting was held – to give a Development Variance Permit to the building’s developers.The permit allows for a shorter distance between the development and other properties. The construction distance has been changed on the south side from 10.5 to 6 metres and on the east side from 10.5 to 4.5 metres.- Advertisement -The extra space would be used to allow for both the underground and above ground parking lots.A public meeting was held to discuss any problems affected residents may have had with the setback changes.Councillors Lori Ackerman and Dan Davies had concerns about the height of the building and its shadowing effect on nearby buildings.Advertisement The President of the architectural firm designing the building, Roger Field, says that during the summer months there would be no effect, however during the winter, there would be a shadow that would affect at least one of the nearby townhomes.Rick Walters, one of three owners of an adjacent vacant property, spoke against the proposed setback changes. Walters says he believes the developer should have been aware of the City setback regulations from the beginning and should abide by the regulations.He adds that if he chose to build, he would be required to abide by the same types of regulations.Both Field and the President of Pallisades Apartment, William Grantmyre, say they chose a six floor building for both aesthetic and economic reasons.Advertisementlast_img read more

Business as usual for Catalonia trip – Zidane

first_img0Shares0000Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane pictured sidelines during the Spanish league match against Getafe CF at the Col. Alfonso Perez stadium in Getafe on October 14, 2017 © AFP/File / Oscar DEL POZOMADRID, Spain, Oct 28 – Real Madrid will travel “as normal” coach Zinedine Zidane insisted for their La Liga clash at Girona on Sunday (1515GMT) despite the political turmoil engulfing Catalonia.Spain moved Saturday to assert direct rule over the deeply divided region, whose parliament voted in favour of unilateral declaration on independence from Spain on Friday. “It doesn’t need to be a special game for us,” insisted Zidane on Saturday.“It’s a league game we’re going to play tomorrow, and that’s it. You have to think about the game, not the context.“Of course, we follow and we look at the situation, but we are only focusing on tomorrow’s match.”The city of Girona just over 100 kilometres (62 miles) northeast of Barcelona is a hotbed of pro-Independence support and the birthplace of deposed regional leader Carles Puigdemont.However, on Madrid’s first appearance in Catalonia since a violence-marred referendum on independence that sparked weeks of political crisis on October 1, Zidane tried to play down the signficance of the European champions’ visit.“I see only one thing, the game tomorrow and nothing else,” the Frenchman continued.“There is a lot of noise on the outside, which I am not going to get involved in.“I am only concentrated on the game, we will travel and what matters to me is what we do on the pitch.”Madrid will fly to Catalonia later on Saturday, but their official team bus will not be making the journey to carry them from the hotel to the stadium as is common on trips to Catalonia.“It won’t be the first time that this has happened and there is no need to give it any further importance,” Real’s Director of Institutional Relations, Emilio Butragueno, told Spanish sports daily Marca.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

PATH will not dramatically change the way the shelter is run, said its CEO, Joel John Roberts. Currently, the center asks the adults it serves to work or look for a job during the week, and they have to save money to eventually get a place of their own. “We have the same values, exactly the same,” Roberts said. “That’s why our board really thought that this was a good match.” Alex Dobuzinskis, (818) 546-3304 alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The City Council gave People Assisting the Homeless the go-ahead Tuesday to take over Project Achieve, a 40-bed center that serves homeless individuals and families. The Institute for Urban Research and Development, which runs the shelter, informed the city earlier this year that it would cease operating the facility at the end of the year. The city plans to run it from Jan. 1 to July 1, when PATH will take over. City Councilman Bob Yousefian said details of the deal still need to be worked out. last_img read more
