Ignoring the ongoing signing of the book of condolence for the late Chief Justice Johnnie N. Lewis at the Temple of Justice, several citizens of Grand Cape Mount Count were yesterday, seen expressing their disappointment and anger over Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor’s handling of the stay order placed on the certification of Senator-elect for Grand Cape Mount County, Cllr. Varney G. Sherman.Hours to the certification of Cllr. Sherman by the National Elections Commission (NEC), a defeated senatorial candidate, Dr Fodee Kromah of the Congress for Democratic Change filled a complaint against the election of Cllr. Sherman to the Supreme Court.It was based on the complaint that Justice in Chamber Associate Justice Philip A.Z. Banks placed a stay order on all activities leading to the certification of Cllr. Sherman who is also chairman of the ruling Unity Party (UP).Yesterday’s incident started when Chief Justice Korkpor informed the supporters and lawyers of Cllr. Sherman to assemble at the courtroom of the Supreme Court where he would deliver his opinion (ruling) regarding the Chamber Justice’s stay order.“You are to appear at this courtroom by 2:pm on Tuesday, February 3, to attend the final ruling by the Full Bench of the Supreme Court into the stay order matter involving Cllr. Sherman,” the Chief Justice had announced on Monday, February 2 in the courtroom.He said “the reason is that Dr. Kromah who had filed his complaint against the irregularities during the December 20, 2014, special senatorial election in Grand Cape Mount County has withdrawn his complaint.”The decision, he said, “implies that there is no more case before us, Justices of the Supreme Court to hear and decide upon. It is so ordered. Matter is suspended.” Chief Justice Korkpor’s decision came after the lawyer representing Dr. Kromah asked the court that they withdraw their complaints against Cllr. Sherman, to pave the way for his certification by the NEC.Unfortunately, while the citizens and lawyers were seated and waiting for Chief Justice Korkpor to come and lift the stay order against Cllr. Sherman, surprisingly the Marshall of the Supreme Court came hurriedly and told the gathering, “Everybody please leave the courtroom because there is no case today.”When the citizens attempted to ask the Marshall what was happening, he responded, “I don’t want to answer questions. It is an order from my bosses and I must do it.”After leaving the courtroom, the citizens were heard venting their anger against the Full Bench of the Supreme Court especially, Chief Justice Korkpor “It is simply unacceptable for the Chief Justice to treat us Cape Mountanians in this manner,” murmured the angry group of citizens who asked not to be named for fear of tampering with the case that is yet to be decided by the Full Bench. “If they don’t want any trouble let them not play with this matter. How would they deny us representation like other counties?” the citizens wondered.They went on to say, “We are getting frustrated over the whole issue. We voted for him and we want him. Nobody will change who we have elected. We are again calling on the Chief Justice to speed up with the case. There is no matter before the court. The defeated party has withdrawn his complaint, so what is the case they are going to hear?” they asked.“Why should they continue to deny us of our choice? The Chief Justice himself asked us to be here. What is wrong that he had to ask someone else to tell us to leave his court yard,” they wondered.Some said the Supreme Court should not get involved in political matters. This is a political issue and they shouldn’t have interfered. Even the man has withdrawn his complaint, as the Chief Justice himself has said so why would they delay in their ruling, they asked.Explaining their plan to stage a demonstration in the county, the group said, they were going back to the county to hold discussions with the citizens about the protest.They did not say when they would stage the demonstration. “We will also discuss with our people about preventing vehicles from leaving and entering the county as part of our protest especially government cars,” stressing,”We are capable of doing so and nobody can stop us.”“We will even stop our local leaders from leaving the county for any official duties outside of the county to demonstrate that we are tired and enough is enough,” the group vowed.Cllr. Sherman won the Grand Cape Mount senate with 13, 651 votes representing 61.7% while Dr. Kromah managed runner-up with 3,431 votes representing 15.5 percent.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
The Social Cohesion Ministry will be taking the necessary steps to ensure that grants awarded to successful applicants of the Youth Innovation Project of Guyana (YIPoG) are being spent only on their project.This was announced by the programme’s Project Officer, Germaine Watson, on Friday.Executives from the Youth Innovation Programme of Guyana (YIPoG) flanked by mentors and a few of the participants from 2017“What we are doing this year is to allot those monies in tranches. So, as against last year, whereby persons got their full amount, we will be giving those monies according to our investigations, according to their proposals and the reports,” Watson explained.To ensure that the necessary monitoring is being done, especially now that the Government has allotted $70 million to the successful applicants, Watson told Guyana Times that at least 17 monitors have been employed.Social Cohesion Minister with responsibility for Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr George Norton, has reiterated the vitality of the programme to the Guyanese youths.This year’s theme, like last year’s, is ‘Aspire, Inspire to Reach’.Director of Youth, Melissa Carmichael, informed thus, “Each region, through the regional offices, toshaos and community development officers, will receive the Youth Innovation packages, while monitors will be assigned to the said regions to facilitate the channeling of the innovative ideas and pioneering spirit of young Guyanese so as to produce solutions…”Persons between the ages of 14 and 35 are being urged to apply, as are teams comprising of less than 10 participants. The projects or programmes being submitted by these applicants should focus on social and environmental development issues using Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture, Antropology, Archaeology, Arts, Mathematics and Spirituality (STEAMS).Application forms can be uplifted from the Department of Youth, as well as its Facebook page and The Ministry’s website. Applicants have until June 30, 2018 to ensure their proposals are submitted.Proposals for YIPoG will be shortlisted according to the clarity in goals, sensible budgeting, and long-term sustainability, among other criteria.In a brief report, Carmichael informed that 21 groups and individuals from several different areas across Guyana were last year awarded grants to facilitate the implementation of their projects.Some $40 million were spent on the YIPoG initiative. She related that the programme received 56 proposals, from which 21 received funding. “To date, approximately 60 per cent of the projects are in their implementation stage, while the others are securing relevant materials to begin work,” she said.Region Four received the most grants, followed by Region Seven; while Regions One, Two, Three, Five, Six, Eight, Nine and Ten secured one each.The projects that were funded during last year are expected to improve the lives of students and citizens within the respective regions.Some developers of programmes include Romel Putulall, Shamar Spencer, Berlinda Persaud and Christine DeCambra-Forrester.Shamar Spencer, in brief remarks, said his major challenge during the development of ‘SWOOP’ was public awareness. Swoop is a mobile application (app) that Spencer created to allow persons to trade goods and services without the use of money. His project was awarded $1 million.Last year’s participants also seized the opportunity to display models of their projects on Friday.
“We’re going to investigate it at the highest level and than collect all of the evidence, and than make a determination from there,” Cpl Dave Tyreman of the Prince George RCMP explained. “…We don’t know if it was arson, if it was accidental, or what the cause of the fire was now.”They’re also unsure as to the exact date in which the trapper cabin burned down, but one thing is for sure, upon further investigation, there were in fact human remains found inside.Tyreman says police are working in conjunction with an arson investigator, forensic team, and has also called in “a lot of additional resources.”- Advertisement -The RCMP is still asking anyone with information regarding this incident to contact the Fort St. John detachment at 250 787 8100, or if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222 8477.
0Shares0000Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac (L) has said that new star signing Philippe Coutinho will not start against Schalke on Saturday © AFP / Christof STACHEBERLIN, Germany, Aug 22 – Brazilian star midfielder Philippe Coutinho will not make his first Bundesliga start when Bayern Munich travel to Schalke on Saturday, said coach Niko Kovac Thursday.Coutinho, 27, has been the talk of Germany since joining Bayern on a one-year loan deal from Barcelona earlier this week. Yet at a press conference on Thursday, Kovac confirmed the Brazilian would begin his first game as a Bayern player on the bench.“He is not quite at the level of fitness he needs to play for 90 minutes,” said Kovac.“He has said that himself, and we don’t want to take any risks. He has only been training for the last two weeks, so he needs to catch up,” he added, but confirmed Coutinho would be in the matchday squad.“I know a lot of people want us to play him straight away, but everything has to be right.”Kovac said Bayern’s other new attacking signing, Croatia winger Ivan Perisic, could make the starting eleven against Schalke.“Ivan is much further along, he started training at the same time as we did, and played several games for Inter Milan in pre-season,” he said.Bayern are under pressure to pick up three points against David Wagner’s Schalke side, having been held to a draw in their opening Bundesliga game against Hertha Berlin last week.0Shares0000(Visited 23 times, 1 visits today)
