Dear Editor,Any country, by adopting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, has agreed that its citizens will benefit from all their basic rights; that every person, regardless of race, religion, gender, ethnicity, age or wealth has the right to receive and enjoy. Under the Guyana Constitution, it must be noted that “the interpretation of the fundamental rights provisions in this constitution, a court shall pay due regards to international law, international conventions and charters bearing on human rights “.The human rights treaties are at the core of the international legal system for the promotion and protection of the human rights of every man, woman or child. International human rights standards were developed to protect people’s human rights against violation by individuals, groups or nations. Every UN member state is a party to the major human rights treaties. Guyana has demonstrated its commitment to the preservation of the rights of all citizens at a working session of the United Nations committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights held in Geneva Switzerland in 2015.The recent decision at the High court in Berbice where 51 persons were denied their rights to withdraw their names from an AFC document which ensured that the AFC can nominate candidates at the present LGE; The issue is whether this decision was made in haste, political judicial pressure, doctored police reports(Minister intervention), or because GECOM had already printed the ballots for the LGE, and as such the judge had no other option but to rule and in a way that denied these people their rights to withdraw their names-and support- from the AFC documents irrespective of trickery or not.In Article 2 of International Human Rights Declaration it states: “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political jurisdictional or international status ……” this evidently ensured that even if people want to change their marriage, religion, nationality etc they have a right to, providing they follow the constitutional process.The people’s rights of Whim – Bloomfield, however, were disregarded when their decision to remove their names from AFC backers’ lists was rejected -despite legal authorised documents presented to GECOM and the court to indicate their choice- and unfortunately, they were forced to support the AFC.The UN GHRA and the international community should pay careful attention to what is actually happening in Guyana.Regards,Zamal Hussain
6 months after disappearingBy Andrew CarmichaelThe skeletal remains of a Black Bush Polder woman was on Friday morning dug up from a grave at the back of her yard at Mibicuri, Black Bush Polder, Berbice.The woman went missing since September last year and her husband kept telling his children that she had migrated to the US.The woman Lilwantie Balack, also called “Darling”, 39, of Mibicuri North, BlackThe grave in which the body was foundBush Polder, Corentyne, was last seen on September 3, 2016, by her children.At about 11:30h on Friday her remains were found in a four-foot grave situated about 120 meters behind the house.Her 21-year-old daughter, Dharshni Davi Balack, said her father gave conflicting reports about the whereabouts of her mother. She related to the media that her father told herself and siblings that their mother migrated to the US and when other relatives asked him about her, he told them a different version.Suspicion grew as no phone calls were received from Lilwantie and her husband; Sunildat Balack, also called “Red Man”, 43, took a 21-year-old woman to live with him. The three Balack children soon discovered that their new stepmother was wearing their mother’s wedding band.On Thursday morning, Major Crime Unit and investigators from B Division went to the grave, which was identified by the suspect. Government Pathologist DrDead: Lilwantie BalackVivekanand Bridgemohan was also present.Investigators dug for about two hours then found bones and another two hours of digging were able to get the entire skeleton.Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner Ian Amsterdam said they will have to conduct a DNA to confirm the woman’s identity.Meanwhile, Police who arrested the suspect on Tuesday were also initially told that the woman had migrated. However local immigration records confirmed that she did not leave the country. Investigators then pressured the suspect who crumbled and confessed.Guyana Times understands that that on September 6, 2016, the man and his wife had an argument over her wanting to go to the USA. This newspaper as told that the argument escalated after the man refused to allow his wife to go on vacation.The man told investigators that he coked his wife, who passed out and fell to the ground. He said that after she passed out he became scared and dug a hole in the back yard and buried her.At the time of the incident, the Balacks’s had a 17-year-old daughter living withInvestigators exiting the crime scenethem. However at the time of the incident she was not at home and when she returned she was told that her mother had left home for the USA.The dead woman’s daughter, Dharshni Balack told the media that after sometime they attempted to get the Police involved in the matter but were threatened by her father’s relatives.She said from the first day she was told that her mother had migrated there was the suspicion that something was amiss. She said the fact that her mother’s clothes were intact suggested that she did not go anywhere.Her brother Khemraj Balack tried to hold back the tears as he watched his mother’s remains being placed in containers by Police. The young man expressed no sympathy for his father and said whatever happens to him he deserves. “Let him feel how me Mummy feel…,” he said as tears bubbled in his eyes.Residents in the community describe the late Balack as a peaceful farmer, who never spoke much. They said in recent months the suspect had become obnoxious and had been consuming more alcohol that he was previously known to consume.Reports also indicate that since the disappearance of the woman, the suspect had never gone into his farm alone and would pay a neighbour to accompany him. The body was discovered buried in the said farm.The father of the now dead woman Chattergoon Budram was also on the scene on Friday.Gowmatie Edwards, who lives next door said that she was also told that the woman was overseas.Residents in the community describe the woman as a peaceful farmer who never spoke much. They say in recent months the suspect started to drink regularly.The Police are continuing their investigation.
0Shares0000Gor Mahia’s Ernest Wendo vies for the ball against Esperance du Tunis’s players during a CAF Champions League tie at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on March 7, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 11- Gor Mahia midfield workhorse Ernest Wendo will miss Wednesday afternoon’s CECAFA Kagame Cup semi-final match against Azam in Dar es Salaam and faces up to six weeks out with a groin injury after limping off the quarter final game against Vipers on Sunday.The injury looks to keep him out Gor’s CAF Confederation Cup campaign as well as a good chunk of their league assignments and will also miss K’Ogalo’s trip to England for a friendly match with Everton FC. “We have lost Wendo, we don’t know for how long. We need a proper physio to assess him and the extent of the injury, but it could be a minimum of six weeks because it’s a groin injury and that usually requires a lot of time,” head coach Dylan Kerr said.While Kerr will patch up with Philemon Otieno moving to midfield and Innocent Wafula slotting at right back at the Kagame Cup and local assignments, he might have to think of a solution for the Confederation Cup as Wafula is not registered to play.Gor will face Tanzania’s Yanga at home on July 18 and away in Dar es Salaam 10 days later, games that will be crucial in their aspiration to make it to the quarter finals of the continental championship.Gor Mahia’s George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo vies for the ball with Vipers’ Milton Karisa during the CECAFA Kagame Cup Quarter Finals at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on July 8, 2018.But before all that, the Kenyan champions will have their eyes fixed on a maiden Kagame Cup title in 23 years when they face Tanzania’s Yanga in the semis on Wednesday, a repeat of the 2015 final at the same venue.Kerr notes that Gor will not be going into the tie breathing revenge having lost that game 2-0, but notes his side will have their focus on getting the job done and qualifying for Sunday’s final.“I don’t really like the stories of revenge because sometimes the players lose focus. What I want us to do is go there and get the job done, do what we do best. I was here in 2015 and I watched the game; I think they were unlucky then,” the tactician says.Gor have grown into the tournament after a lackluster start dominated by off the field issues, but the tactician notes that everything is now settled and they are looking to make the best of their Kagame Cup campaign.Gor Mahia forward Ephraim Guikan controls the ball under pressure from a Rayon Sport defender during their CECAFA Kagame Cup game at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on July 1, 2018“The morale when we came here was low but the players have picked themselves up and it was evident in the game against Vipers especially in the second half. We have played six games in 12 days and that is definitely tough but my players have been phenomenal so far,” the coach noted.He now hopes that having had an extra day to rest compared to Azam will give them an edge and his charges will bulldoze their way into the final.While Gor came from behind to beat Vipers 2-1 in their quarter final tie, Azam made easy work of Rwanda’s Rayon Sport beating them 4-2, striker Shabaan Iddi scoring all four.In the other quarter final, Simba SC will face off with Zanzibar’s JKU who beat Singida United on penalties to progress.Potentially, Simba and Gor will meet in another final, barely a month after facing each other in the SportPesa Super Cup.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Robert Earnshaw Robert Earnshaw is perhaps not quite the deadly finisher he used to be.The former West Brom and Wales striker, now playing for the Vancouver Whitecaps in the MLS, clearly still fancies himself from 35 yards – but maybe he shouldn’t.This free kick against Seatle Sounders nearly cleared the entire stand. It was a terrible effort, but maybe it will get him a call-up to Wales’ injury-ravaged Rugby World Cup squad! https://platform.vine.co/static/scripts/embed.js 1
RENO, Nev. – A federal appeals court overturned the conviction of two men accused of stealing American Indian artwork Tuesday even though the judges said it was clear the men took the centuries-old petroglyphs. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Justice Department failed to prove that the rock art taken from national forest land had market value of more than $1,000. A federal court jury in Reno had convicted Carroll Mizell, 44, of Van Nuys, and John Ligon, 40, of Reno, Nev., in June 2004 of stealing government property. The two admitted they took three boulders with etchings of an archer and bighorn sheep from the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest but insisted they didn’t know they were breaking the law. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Forest Service officials believe the petroglyphs are at least 1,000 years old, and an agency archaeologist testified they had an archaeological value of about $8,000. But prosecutors didn’t introduce an Arizona art gallery owner’s appraisal as evidence. He had estimated the boulders could be sold for $1,500 if they were in good condition but because they were badly scarred when they were removed, their retail value was $800 to $900. “It is clear that Ligon and Mizell stole the petroglyphs. It is equally clear that the petroglyphs had a market value,” Judge William A. Fletcher wrote in the opinion issued Tuesday. But he said that the government’s decision not to introduce evidence of the petroglyphs’ value within the meaning of federal law left the court with little choice but to overturn the convictions. Lawyer David Houston, who represented Mizell, said that the appeals court “agreed with us. … This case never should have gone to the jury.” Prosecutor Robert Don Gifford said he was reviewing the opinion and had no immediate comment. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The event started on Monday September 25th with an ecumenical service of remembrance in the Community Hall Annagry at which Fr. Pat Ward P.P and Margaret Boyd Church of Ireland presided. The readers at the service were Jim Boyd Carnboy and Hannah Gallagher Mullaghduff. After the service an exhibition opened, chronicling the lives of 160 local people caught up in the upheaval of war, in which at least 65 from this area paid the ultimate price. In addition to the local display, Donegal County Museum Letterkenny kindly displayed their travelling World War One exhibition. On Wednesday September 27th a Memorial Mass was held in Kincasslagh Church. In his apt and thought provoking sermon Fr. Pat Ward asked for the forgiveness of the Catholic Church’s role in World War One enlistments. He prayed for the people of the area caught up in all wars and the victims of the Ballymanus Mine Disaster. After the Mass, Fr. Ward unveiled and blessed a memorial stone that reads “Dedicated to the memory of Lower Rosses who have died as a result of war”. This memorial is situated in the south eastern side of Kincasslagh Old Graveyard. The highlight of the exhibition came on Saturday September 30th when many local people put on display for the first time personal artefacts relating to their relatives who took part in war. This display will form part of a County wide exhibition opening in the County Museum Letterkenny on Wednesday September 25th at 7.30pm.

A man who was caught with ten stolen mobile phones has been jailed for six months.Sabin Rostas appeared at Letterkenny District Court after being caught with the phones at a routine Garda patrol at Oldtown, Letterkenny on February 24th last. The court was told that all ten phones had been stolen on the same night at the Warehouse Bar in Letterkenny.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client was not charged with theft and that other people who were not before the court were responsible for that.He said everyone whose phone had been stolen had received them back despite the fact that they were without them for a period of time.He said his client had gathered some cash and wanted to compensate the victims for the period of time without their phones.Rostas, aged 28 from The Green, Convoy, also pleaded guilty to the theft of a purse form a handbag in the Voodoo NIghtclub in Letterkenny on December 24th, 2017.The court was told that CCTV showed Rostas putting the purse into a ceiling space inside the men’s toilets but that €70 in cash taken from the purse was never recovered.Judge Paul Kelly said Rostas, who has seven previous convictions, had got off lightly until now with community services and fines.“There’s only one way I can deal with this,” added Judge Kelly.He sentenced Rostas to three months in prison for the purse theft but backdated that sentence to March 17th when he went into custody and a further three months for possession of the stolen phones.Man caught with ten stolen mobile phones jailed for 6 months was last modified: June 7th, 2019 by StephenShare 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)
