Whither Good Governance in Liberia?

first_imgThe Daily Observer Editor last Friday received a desperate call. In tears, the caller asked, “Mr. Editor, what are these people doing to our country?”The caller had seen the Daily Observer’s front page, which carried as its lead story the election of a new Speaker of the House of Representatives. No, it was NOT Hans Barchue, the Grand Bassa lawmaker whom some powerful people used to get rid ofHouse Speaker Alex Tyler. The new Speaker was someone else, in the person of Emmanuel Nuquay, Representative of District Five of Margibi County.What had happened?The powerful individuals had used Barchue to wage a vicious and relentless battle against Speaker Tyler, to force him out of office. And once that was accomplished, what happened to the illustrious and triumphant Deputy Speaker Barchue? The same powerful people whose bidding he had religiously and passionately executed dumped him.Barchue, at the height of his presumed triumph, having accomplished the task to which he was assigned, summarily adjourned the House, thinking that he and all his House colleagues were now on vacation until 2017.Alas! The powerful and unconscionable manipulators seized the moment again and immediately threw their weight behind someone else—Mr. Nuquay, leader of the new “majority.” Now that Barchue had taken his “triumphant parachute”—or so he thought, Nuquay promptly convened this new majority who—you guessed it—elected him the new Speaker of the House of Representatives.Did Barchue not know that if one allows himself to be used by others to engage in a nefarious act of whatever kind, when that act is accomplished he would have to watch his back, because these same powerful instigators could be coming for him? The Bible says, “When thou shall cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoilt.” Had Hans Barchue failed to grasp or detect the power at play in the Supreme Court, when they refused to grant Speaker Tyler’s petition to stop the very Barchue and his rebellious gang from their plot to remove him (Tyler)? Or was Barchue deceived into thinking that he was acting on the strength of his own power?What happened in the House and in the Supreme Court was a classic case of political manipulation, which students of political science need to study, analyze and write about. This may serve as an important lesson to politicians of tomorrow. If well analyzed and forthrightly presented, this study could well serve as a warning for tomorrow’s politicians: Beware of people who try to use you to get at other people, especially in matters of crass (tactless, ridiculous) deception and betrayal. For your time, too, may come to reap the consequences of your own unethical and malicious actions. The same thing happened in the Senate. Senators from the highest level on down have been used by the same powerful manipulators to do their bidding. Does anyone know what really happened to high ranking Senator Oscar Cooper?The students of political science again have a great opportunity to investigate this and tell the story to academia and to the world. It may serve a highly useful lesson to politicians of tomorrow. Why was a man who knew so much about the inner workings of that very important Ministry summarily removed from his position as Chair of the Committee on Public Works? Who was behind it and why?The burning question persists: Do we still have three branches of government in Liberia? Or has Ellen reaped what she many times told us—that she would not pursue “an imperial presidency?”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Minister’s speedboat operating at Bartica without approval – Speedboat Association

first_imgA speedboat owned by a Government Minister is operating the Parika-Bartica route without the necessary approval and authorisation.The Bartica-bound boat loaded with passengers at Parika, East Bank EssequiboThis is according to President of the Bartica Speedboat Association, Stephen Belle, who told Guyana Times on Tuesday that the issue was brought to his attention by a Maritime Administration Department (MARAD) officer on Tuesday.Belle stated that while at Parika and loading passengers, an official from MARAD had to intervene after the captain and bowman were involved in an incident. It was then that documents were requested for the boat and the captain referred MARAD officials to the Minister (name provided). This newspaper was told that the incident was reported to MARAD’s head office in Georgetown.“After the monitor spoke to the guy he continued to load the boat without adhering to the instructions by the maritime officer saying that she can tell who she wants and do what she has to do. Nobody can’t touch this. This is the Minister’s boat,” Belle stated.Bartica Speedboat Association President, Stephen BelleAccording to the President of the BSA, there have been many unprincipled practices and instances which have been occurring and ignored by MARAD and other relevant authorities.The BSA President had claimed that there was an instance earlier in 2018 where one boat was given a turn in the system without the Association’s approval or any application being filed.He had also stated that MARAD’s Director General, Claudette Rogers, had said that the boat was owned by an oil company, but it was later discovered that the owner of the boat was linked to a senior Government official.Belle had said that the boat was placed in the system by MARAD without any consultations or approval from the Association.“We are very much concerned about what is happening and it seems as though nobody cares and [there is] nothing to be done…,” the President had expressed.Belle had also told Guyana Times that there are a number of boats operating without the legal requirements being met and that despite several reports being made, MARAD has failed to enforce the regulations on those guilty of breaking the laws and other relevant authorities have continued to ignore this.“Every day there are boats that are loading back and forth without licences under the watchful eyes of the Maritime officials at Parika. Reports were made to the police and to the Minister, the Director [of] Maritime Safety, Harbour Master and nobody seems to care, nobody seems to be doing anything about it,” Belle had explained.last_img read more

Man accused of choking pregnant girlfriend, then dumping body

first_img LaBrunda told police that he choked her in his car after she disrespected him, Wheeler said. He was being held without bail in jail. Police expect to file two counts of murder for Johnson and her unborn baby within the next day. LaBrunda has a criminal history dating back seven years including misdemeanor battery against a spouse, corporal injury on a child, resisting arrest, assault and a felony carjacking, according to the Los Angeles County Superior Court public information office. —————————————— For the latest news and observations on crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here. NORTH HOLLYWOOD — A 33-year-old North Hollywood man is accused of choking his girlfriend — who was four and a half months pregnant — because she disrespected him, then dumping her body in an alley behind a North Hollywood house, police said this morning. Michael LaBrunda was booked into the Los Angeles County Jail on suspicion of murder in connection with the death of Alisha Johnson, 21, of Westminster, said Los Angeles Police Detective Rich Wheeler. “It’s tragic,” Wheeler said. “She didn’t deserve this. She’s 21. And like all 21-year-olds, she was starting her life out.” A resident who lives in the 8100 block of Vanscoy Avenue spotted the body of a woman laying on some tires in an alley and called police about 11 yesterday. Detectives determined the case was a homicide, and after identifying her, contacted family and friends who told police Johnson had told them that she was pregnant by LaBrunda, whom she met at college, Wheeler said. They had known each other for two years. Police spotted LaBrunda later in his Mazda 626 near Bellaire Avenue and Lorne Street, near where the body was dumped, and detained him for questioning, Wheeler said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Senate confirms Mukasey as Attorney General

first_imgWASHINGTON – The Senate confirmed retired judge Michael Mukasey as attorney general Thursday night to replace Alberto Gonzales, who was forced from office in a scandal over his handling of the Justice Department. Mukasey was confirmed as the nation’s 81st attorney general after a sharp debate over his refusal to say whether the waterboarding interrogation technique is torture. Republicans were solidly behind President Bush’ nominee. Democrats said their votes were not so much for Mukasey as they were for restoring a leader to a Justice Department left adrift after Gonzales’ resignation in September. In the end, Mukasey was confirmed by a 53-40 vote. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre The choice, according to one of those Democrats, was essentially between “whether to confirm Michael Mukasey as the next attorney general or whether to leave the Department of Justice without a real leader for the next 14 months,” said one Democratic supporter, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California. “This is the only chance we have,” she said, referring to Bush’s threat to appoint an acting attorney general not subject to Senate confirmation. But members of her own party didn’t agree. Mukasey, his opponents argued, refused to say whether waterboarding is torture and put the onus on Congress to pass a law against the practice. “This is like saying when somebody murders somebody with a a baseball bat and you say, `We had a law against murder but we never mentioned baseball bats,”‘ said Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. “Murder is murder. Torture is torture.” Being better than Gonzales or an acting attorney general is not enough qualification for the job, said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass. “The next attorney general must restore confidence in the rule of law,” he said. “We cannot afford to take the judgment of an attorney general who either does not know torture when he sees it or is willing to look the other way.” The confirmation vote capped 10 months of scandal and resignations at the Justice Department. Mukasey’s chief Democratic patron, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., drove the probe into the purge of nine federal prosecutors that helped push Gonzales out. The debate came after a tense day of negotiations that at one point featured Majority Leader Harry Reid threatening to postpone Mukasey’s confirmation until December. His confirmation had long been certainty despite the debate over waterboarding. Waterboarding, used by interrogators to make someone feel as if he is going to drown, is banned by domestic law and international treaties. But U.S. law applies to Pentagon personnel and not the CIA. The administration won’t say whether it has allowed the agency’s employees to use it against terror detainees. “The United States will not be viewed kindly if we confirm as chief law-enforcement officer of this country someone who is unwilling or unable to recognize torture when he sees it,” said Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat. Mukasey has called waterboarding personally “repugnant,” and in a letter to senators said he did not know enough about how it has been used to define it as torture. He also said he thought it would be irresponsible to discuss it since doing so could make interrogators and other government officials vulnerable to lawsuits. “He felt that he could not make that pronouncement without placing people at risk to be sued or perhaps even criminally prosecuted,” said Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, the ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Mukasey, who received a strong endorsement from Schumer, was the White House’s first choice to replace Gonzales. Gonzales announced his resignation on Aug. 27, and the White House interviewed Mukasey the same day. Three weeks later, Bush introduced the 66-year-old Mukasey as “a tough but fair judge” and asked the Senate to confirm him quickly. Mukasey, the former chief U.S. district judge in the Manhattan courthouse just blocks from ground zero, was first appointed to the bench in 1987 by President Reagan. He also worked for four years as a trial prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York’s Southern District – one of the Justice Department’s busiest and highest-profile offices in the country. Mukasey oversaw some of the nation’s most significant terror trials in the years before and after the attacks of Sept. 11. He sentenced Omar Abdel Rahman, known as the “blind sheik,” to life in prison for a plot to blow up New York City landmarks, and he signed in 2002 the material witness warrant that let the FBI arrest U.S. citizen Jose Padilla. That warrant marked the start of a case that wound its way through several federal courts as the government declared Padilla an enemy combatant and held him for 3 years before he was convicted last month on terrorism-related charges.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
