first_img− Carvil Duncan fraud charge dismissed A city Magistrate on Wednesday dismissed a fraud charge against Carvil Duncan, a trade unionist and former member of the Board of Directors of the State-run Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Inc.Carvil DuncanDuncan was facing a charge which stated that on March 31, 2015 at Georgetown, he stole $984,900, property of GPL.But Magistrate Leron Daly ruled that the prosecution’s evidence was insufficient to make out a prima facie case against Duncan, who was charged on January 26, 2016.Duncan’s Defence Attorney, Glen Hanoman said the Magistrate deemed as inadmissible a photocopied Cabinet decision, and oral testimony by former Prime Minister Samuel Hinds about a Cabinet meeting where the decision to pay Duncan was made.Duncan still faces a conspiracy charge which stated that between May 7 and May 8, 2015, he conspired with then Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO) of GPL, Aeshwar Deonarine to steal $27,757,547, property of the power company.He is expected to appear in court on January 4, 2017 to answer to that charge. Duncan was confident that this charge would also be dismissed.Duncan was recently suspended from the chairmanship of the Public Service Commission and membership of several other constitutional bodies by President David Granger, who appointed a Tribunal to determine his fate in light of the criminal charges.Late last month, Duncan had moved to the High Court, where Justice FranklinMinister of State,Joseph HarmonHolder issued temporary orders to halt the work of the tribunal.But it is now unclear what implications the dismissal of the charge will have on the Tribunal and Duncan’s suspension.When contacted, Attorney General Basil Williams indicated that he was in a meeting and could not respond at the time.Meanwhile, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall in a statement shortly after the verdict, said that the dismissal of the charge vindicates Duncan’s.Nandlall added that it also gave credence to his argument all along that Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo and President Granger acted “prematurely, precipitously, capriciously, arbitrarily and unconstitutionally” when they activated a process to remove Duncan from office before the hearing and determination of the criminal charges.“As it now turns out, they are attempting to remove from office, a high constitutional office holder who enjoys security of tenure of office and who has done no legal wrong that would be considered ‘misbehaviour’ to warrant his removal from office,” Nandlall stated.Unlawful and unconstitutionalThe former Attorney General said that the dismissal of the charge also shows that the Presidential Tribunal was an unlawful and unconstitutional course of action. “The Executive has wasted a lot of time, energy and financial resources in its indecent haste to remove Mr Duncan from office. In the end, the rule of law and an independent judiciary have prevailed,” Nandlall reasoned.He called on President Granger to abandon the Tribunal and immediately reinstate Duncan to his constitutional posts.“In the circumstances, the President is now obliged to do the decent thing, which is to disband the Tribunal forthwith and to rescind his suspension of Mr Duncan from performing his various constitutional functions,” he stated.Efforts to contact Minister of State, Joseph Harmon for a comment on the way forward for the Tribunal and Duncan’s reinstatement proved unsuccessful, as calls to his mobile phone went unanswered.

first_imgSometimes it takes a village – at least that’s the approach Van Nuys residents are taking to deal with the long-standing issue of prostitution in their neighborhood. Joining forces with the City Council and the Los Angeles Police Department, residents are picking up signs, flashlights and cameras to participate in monthly marches through the streets of their neighborhood. They begin after dark and walk the streets until midnight. The idea is to send a message to streetwalkers and their johns. “Families in this neighborhood are fed up with this issue,” said Ron Hay, a Van Nuys resident for 10 years. Usually the women work a circuit, and the Sepulveda Boulevard corridor ranks among the top three locations in Southern California, police said. “Unfortunately, this has been going on for decades,” C rdenas said. “As a community, we feel compelled and obligated to do whatever we can to reduce this problem. Children in these neighborhoods should not have to look at the evidence of this problem on their walk to school every morning. They shouldn’t have to deal with that.” Residents are encouraged to bring still and video cameras to the marches, too. “This is the safest way let them know we are looking at them, we are watching them and we are recording them,” C rdenas said. “We can let them know they are not supposed to be doing that in our neighborhood.” The walks seem to be leading to results. Although authorities couldn’t provide specific numbers, Sgt. McNeill Gardner said he has seen a “significant drop in street prostitution.” “The women have seen the community’s involvement and they have started to shy away from the area,” said Gardner, who patrols the Van Nuys-North Hills area. With officers already stretched thin, he said it is a community program like this that can make a difference. “Law enforcement is 50percent police and 50percent community,” he said. “There is only so much we can do.” Hay said the organized effort has also created some side effects that have led to his neighborhood’s improvement. Extra lighting has been added to some streets, and extra officers have been assigned to key hot spots along the boulevard. For Hay, who is captain of his street’s Neighborhood Watch program and has several officers’ numbers on speed dial, community members need to realize that apathy is not an option. “So many people would rather stay home and ignore what’s going on,” he said. “But people need to become a part of the solution, not part of the problem. If you don’t, your neighborhood goes down the tubes.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

I have found condoms in the gutter,” he said. “It is just unpleasant.” Officer Ron Carter, who initiated the monthly marches, said the idea is to get those most affected involved in getting rid of the problem. “Community policing – that is where it all begins,” Carter said, adding that his vice officers regularly organize stings and undercover operations. Councilman Tony C rdenas, who helped put together the task force that launched the monthly marches, said as soon as he was elected, he heard from the community about the prostitution. last_img read more

first_img 5. Slaven Bilic (West Ham United) – After an excellent 2015/16 season, the pressure on Bilic to further build the reputation of the Hammers will only have heightened as the club move to the Olympic Stadium. He quickly made his mark on an uninspired squad last term, coaching the style of play desired by the Irons’ owners, with Dimitri Payet at the hub of their success. A swift start will be wanted at their new ground, but Bilic seems up for the job. The question is, will expectations be too high, especially with a Europa League campaign – starting in July – to cope with? 20 20 20 20 11. Aitor Karanka (Middlesbrough) – Boro have been the most active of the newly-relegated clubs so far, suggesting their intent to cement their place in the top flight. The club, therefore, should be hoping to seal a mid-table finish. The pressure will be on Karanka to deliver on England’s biggest stage. Stream the Premier League live on talkSPORT this season! Click here to see our line up of live games in August and September.Excitement for the new Premier League season is rising.There’s less than a month to go until kick off, with plenty of new faces on and off the pitch to look forward to seeing in action.And earlier in the summer, we ranked each club in England’s top flight based on expectations for the 2016/17 season – but what about each sides’ manager?Which boss might struggle next term? Who could be leading the fight at the other end of the table?Taking these questions into consideration, check out the full ranking of every Premier League managers’ expectations for next season by viewing the slideshow above. 20 15. Francesco Guidolin (Swansea City) – Guidolin came to the rescue when the Swans looked as though they would be in for an ugly relegation battle. The Italian took over in January, guiding the club to a comfortable mid-table finish. The Welsh outfit should be looking, at minimum, for a similar position next season. Guidolin’s summer business will be interesting. 20 13. Mark Hughes (Stoke City) – Hughes is quietly developing an exciting Potters squad, with such players as Xherdan Shaqiri transforming their style of play. But despite suggesting they had the potential to seal one of the European spots last season, they fell just short and a repeat of their challenge could be all the more difficult next term. There isn’t too much weight on Hughes’ shoulders, though. 20 18. Sam Allardyce (Sunderland) – Allardyce is in the frame for the vacant England position, with Sunderland releasing a statement confirming the Football Association have held talks with their boss. Three Lions aside, though, the 61-year-old has another challenge in keeping the Black Cats away from the drop zone. Not much is really expected of Allardyce as a struggle is again predicted. Staying up with a bit more comfort would be a major improvement. Or maybe even just staying at the club! 12. Walter Mazzarri (Watford) – Last season was a difficult affair for the Hornets, who dwindled as the campaign progressed. Many were disappointed by Quique Sanchez Flores’ departure, but it seems a change was necessary. The club’s owners will provide new boss Mazzarri with the transfer kitty required, which only adds to expectations for the incoming term. Taking over at Vicarage Road would be a challenging job for the best of managers, making Mazzarri’s summer preparations crucial. 6. Arsene Wenger (Arsenal) – Expectation is always high at Arsenal, and after a second-place finish last season you might expect fans to dream of the title. But the reality is that plenty of fans expect more of the same, meaning the Gunners to be also-rans when it comes to the title. It’s difficult to know where to start with Wenger. The Frenchman has become more generous in the transfer market over the past few seasons, but a sustained title challenge has been out of his side’s grasp for 12 years. Nonetheless, it could be his final campaign at the Emirates – as he enters the last year of his contract – and he will want to go out on a high. The question is will he deliver? 20. Sean Dyche (Burnley) – read the reasoning for Dyche’s position below, then click the arrow above, right, to find out where YOUR club’s manager finishes in our ranking based on expectations for next season – Having remained in charge of the Clarets despite their relegation from the Premier League in the summer of 2015, the club seem content with Dyche’s progress. Given this, expectations won’t be too high. He again isn’t likely to be handed a large transfer kitty and could be reliant on Andre Gray to deliver the goods. 1. Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) – There’s no question expectations are at their highest over Guardiola. The Spaniard arrives in Manchester after glittering spells with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, where he will be looking to instantly add to his trophy cabinet. The Premier League title will be a priority, but City’s owners are also keen to make an impact on the Champions League (last season’s run to the semi-finals was overdue, but the lame performances against Real Madrid were a major disappointment). This is Guardiola’s chance to dismiss the critics who claim he’s had it easy, winning the title in leagues where only one or two clubs are serious contenders. That said, he has vast resources with which to sculpt a winning team at City, and the presence of his prickly rival Mourinho at Man United only serves to ramp up the expectation. Bring it on! 20 20 20 10. Alan Pardew (Crystal Palace) – Pardew must improve next season. For the second half of last term the Eagles were in dreadful form, picking up just 11 points after the festive period. His transfer activity, so far, suggests Pardew knows improvements are necessary, with Andros Townsend, James Tomkins and Steve Mandana having been lured to Selhurst Park. Should their performances fail to improve, his position could be under threat. 7. Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur) – This season it will be tougher for Pochettino to guide Spurs to another top four finish. With the spending of Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City, along with the appointment of top class managers at the league’s biggest clubs, not forgetting a Champions League campaign to cope with, there are so many challenges to face that simply weren’t there last term. It’ll be disappointing if Tottenham fail to seal a Champions League place, but fans won’t be getting too carried away. 20 20 14. Claude Puel (Southampton) – With his managerial career limited to Ligue 1, the appointment of Puel could be considered a gamble by the Saints. Nonetheless, as predecessors Ronald Koeman and Mauricio Pochettino proved, Premier League experience isn’t essential. Expectations likely won’t be too high on their new boss – in fact, it feels like Saints’ recent punching above their weight has, if anything, heightened expectation of it soon coming to an end, considering their annual talent sale. The transfer window may be important and he has got his business off to an exciting start, sealing a deal for the highly-rated Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. 20 3. Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool) – While rival supporters might struggle to see Liverpool seal a spot in next season’s top four, Kopites on the whole believe they have a top class manager and expect to see an improvement on the last two seasons. His activity in the transfer market already this summer has suggested he knows exactly what he’s after; a contrast to the confusion of Brendan Rodgers’ business. The club’s owners will be demanding far more, particularly in the league, from their German coach in his first full term in charge. With no European football to distract him or his players, the aim will be a top four finish. At the very least, a vast improvement on last season’s eighth place is expected. 9. Ronald Koeman (Everton) – After ditching Southampton, much is expected of Koeman at Goodison Park. The Toffees, with a talented squad including Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku, immensely disappointed last season. The club will be patience with their progress under the Dutchman, but a top eight finish should be the minimum expected next term. 20 4. Antonio Conte (Chelsea) – Considering all the silverware that’s made its way to Stamford Bridge in the last decade, expectations on Conte aren’t as high as they might previously have been ahead of his debut season at Stamford Bridge, but Roman Abramovich will demand no less than a return to the top four. With no European football to contend with, the Italian can really get to work on settling his new squad. But despite the talent in their ranks, it could still be a difficult campaign for the Blues – who are in somewhat of a transitional period – and patience could be key. 20 20 20 2. Jose Mourinho (Manchester United) – Mourinho has a fair few critics to silence at Old Trafford following a disastrous first half of last season with Chelsea. The Portuguese coach has given the impression he has landed his dream job and a return to the top four is the very least expected with his new club, though in truth he will be desperate to eclipse both Chelsea and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. He’s already spent a large chunk of his transfer kitty and will likely continue to splash the cash until the close of the summer window. Being in the Europa League could serve Mourinho well, as he can be expected to field weakened line ups, saving his big guns for the Premier League, while Guardiola will have to juggle the Champions League at the same time as coming to grips with the ferocious competitiveness of the Premier League. 19. Tony Pulis (West Bromwich Albion) – Pulis has done a fine job since being appointed in January 2015, guiding the Baggies to Premier League safety with little fuss involved. Next season will simply be a case of more of the same. They might not excite supporters with their performances, but they continue to prove a nuisance to their domestic rivals. With quality rising around them, however, Pulis may need to signal a message of intent in the transfer window. 20 20 17. Eddie Howe (Bournemouth) – Such has been his rise to prominence, Howe has often been linked with taking over as England manager. The Cherries board will hope this isn’t playing on his mind ahead of the new season as they look to improve on their challenging second half of last term. At only 38 years old, Howe has a long future in management ahead of him and Dean Court has acted as the perfect platform to nurture his talent in the dugout. 16. Steve Bruce (Hull City) – Bruce’s position was reportedly uncertain after the Tigers’ play-off triumph, but it seems he is staying put. He’ll be hoping to see his side settle quickly on their return to the Premier League, and with the number of experienced players in their side, they could have enough to avoid a relegation scrap. He could, however, face an early battle to keep his job if they again struggle to adapt. 8. Claudio Ranieri (Leicester City) – Last season was a dream for Ranieri. But his triumph was more than deserved. After the criticism of his appointment at the beginning of their title-winning campaign, the Italian wasted no time in silencing those doubting his ability. While retaining the Premier League trophy isn’t widely expected next term – particularly with the possibility of more key players following N’Golo Kante out of the King Power Stadium – it would be disappointing if the club aren’t again proving a nuisance to the customary top four. 20last_img read more
