LACC Dragged to Court

first_imgThe Liberia’s Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) is facing a lawsuit over “action of damages for wrong” against Representative Adolf Lawrence, a court document obtained by the Daily Observer said.LACC last week announced that House Speaker J. Alex Tyler and Montserrado County Representative Adolf Lawrence were under investigation on allegation of corruption involving US$22,500 that was paid to Cllr. Michael Allison, a transaction LACC sees as violation of the Public Procurement and Concession (PPCC) law and Public Financial Management Act (PFM).Addressing a news conference over the weekend in Monrovia, Rep. Lawrence dismissed any wrong doing on the part of him and House Speaker Alex Tyler, noting that the allegation is “politically motivated,” and as such, he Lawrence is seeking redress through the Civil Law Court.Providing an account of what transpired, the Montserrado County lawmaker disclosed that three consultants were hired for the nation’s oil and gas consultation after the draft bill was submitted to the Legislature for approval.Rep. Lawrence: “The House of Representatives contracted the services of three consultants, two of which were Liberians and the third a Ghanaian, to advise and draft the two pieces of legislations. The cost of consultancy for each of the Liberian was US$25,000 while the Ghanaian was US$75,000. Since it is the policy of government that services are rendered before payment, but that provisions in these contracts required 50% payment upon signature and due to the need to immediately commence, I as Chairman of the Committee on Lands, Natural Resources, Energy and Environment , sought the intervention of Speaker Tyler on how to proceed there from. Knowing the importance of the exercise, I requested and Speaker [Alex] Tyler agreed to advance the amounts required as initial payments to the consultants with the clear understanding that upon payment by government, he would be reimbursed. Consequently, the two Liberian consultants and the Ghanaian were paid 50 percent in keeping with the terms of the contract. Mr. Allison received US$12,500 representing 50 percent of his contract value. The other consultants were also paid 50 percent of their contract value.“After several months, Allison was informed that his payment was ready and that we had requested full payment from government in keeping with the contract, so that he would be paid his balance and the amount taken from the Speaker would be reimbursed. Allison informed us that he was out of the country but that he would instruct his Professional Assistant to take delivery of the check, which was issued in his name. This was a clear admission by Allison that he knew that Speaker Tyler had made the initial advance payment to him. When he was told that taxes were to be ducted from his balance payment, he raised the contention that this was not part of the contract. Because of Allison’s refusal to pay government’s 10 percent tax, Speaker Tyler advised that I receive the US$10,000 which Allison accepted to refund to avoid confrontation.”According to Lawrence, Allison met with him (Lawrence) upon arrival in Monrovia and agreed that they both proceed to the bank and complete the transaction.Upon verification by bank authorities, Lawrence said; the check was endorsed and encashed by him at EcoBank Annex on Ashmun Street. He thereafter gave me US$10,000 and the balance US$12,000 was taken by him.“At this point, agents of LACC arrived on the scene and informed me that LACC was investigating the ‘just-encashed’ check and that they needed my presence for statement.“At LACC, I was advised by its Chairman to turn over the money to them and return the next day for a statement. I returned the next day and signed a statement sheet and travelled the following day,” the Montserrado County lawmaker declared.He argued that the money in question was not government’s money, “So why has LACC confiscated the money without court order?”He then accused Cllr. James Verdier and the LACC of using the institution as a political tool instead of a professional entity.Lawrence disclosed that LACC has released US$10,000 of the said amount to Allison while investigation is ongoing, a position LACC has since dismissed.According to the court document, defendant LACC was filed a lawsuit on October 24, 2014 before Judge Yusuf D. Kabah, Resident Circuit Judge.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

FACES introduce Friendly Society to aid “Sickle Cell Warriors”

first_imgSickle cell disease (SCD) is a group of blood disorders typically inherited from one’s parents and results in an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin (haemoglobin S) found in red blood cells. In Guyana, there are a number of persons suffering from the disease and in order to make their lives a little better, non-governmental organisation Fight Against Sickle Cell Stigma (FACES) has set up a friendly society to assist them.The women of FACES and HADESabrina Kazim – a sickle cell warrior – in June of 2015 founded FACES to address the stigma and discrimination associated with the disease.Kazim said since its formation, the organisation has been able to host a number of workshops with various Ministries ad agencies. She added that they are also in the process of ascertaining the guidelines and protocols for sickle cell treatment at medical institutions since quite often, sicklers are not taken seriously.“Because of the involvement of opioids in the treatment for sickle cell, persons in the medical field believe that persons with sickle cells are most of the times malingerers and that they are not really in pain, their pains are not authentic,” she said.Kazim said that due to the stigma attached to living with sickle cell disease, persons are quite often tempted to take their own lives to ease the pain. “Sickle cell disease have at least a threefold part, the psychological, the socio economical part, psychological which does affect persons with sickle cell disease and recently at least one of our members tried to commit suicide because of all the trials and tribulations that is attached to this disease,” she informed.She added that they are currently engaging the Social Protection Ministry so that they would be able to alleviate the psychological pressures of living with the disease through regular counselling sessions.As of now, the organisation offers support to its members through social media and face-to-face interaction.Kazim noted with the introduction of the Friendly Society, the organisation would be in a better place to lend assistance. However, she explained for FACES to continue assisting the 89-plus sicklers on its rooster, donations are necessary.“We are appealing to the businesses to make donations as well as private citizens. So far we have one donor and we are seeking to distribute hampers to our sicklers on a monthly basis,” Kazim said.She noted that they have member who are the sole breadwinners of their families and when they are in “crisis”, their families suffer.In addition to the Friendly Society, FACES has also established the Humans Across Diversities Everywhere (HADES) Foundation aimed at providing support services to men, women and youths.last_img read more

Payet stunner helps Marseille thrash Guingamp

first_img0Shares0000Payet scored a memorable goal in Marseille’s comfortable win over Guingamp © AFP / Boris HORVATPARIS, France, Sep 16 – Dimitri Payet scored a stunning goal as Marseille thrashed Guingamp 4-0 at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday to move second in the Ligue 1 table.After Florian Thauvin had opened the scoring early in the second half, Payet met a dipping ball 30 yards from goal with a magnificent side-footed volley which flew into the net off the crossbar. Winger Thauvin added another spectacular goal late on, and Payet teed up Kostas Mitroglou to finish off a blistering second-half display.Rudi Garcia’s Marseille took second place from Lille in the table on goal difference, but remain five points adrift of reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain, who brushed aside Saint-Etienne 4-0 on Friday.The best chance for the home team in a disjointed first-half performance fell to Thauvin, but his shot was blocked after a jinking run had created space inside the box.Marseille coach Garcia sent on Maxime Lopez at half-time to replace Lucas Ocampos, and his side almost took the lead in the 50th minute when Greek striker Mitroglou somehow sent a diving header onto the post from barely a yard out.OM were posing a far greater threat in the second period, and Thauvin looped a 57th-minute header over Guingamp goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson to score with the first shot on target of the match.Marseille wrapped up the points against a toothless Guingamp 17 minutes from time, as former West Ham star Payet produced an early goal-of-the-season contender.Thauvin did his best to match Payet, as he showed great control before cutting inside and curling a wonderful strike into the far top corner from the edge of the area.The 25-year-old, who scored 26 goals in all competitions last season, has now netted five times in as many appearances this term.Payet turned provider in the 83rd minute, rolling the ball perfectly into the path of Mitroglou, who had time to take a touch and slot in to complete the rout.Guingamp remain rooted to the foot of the table, having lost all five of their matches so far in the campaign.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
