PYJ’s Expulsion from Nimba Caucus Lifted

first_imgThe Nimba County 53rd Legislative Caucus has lifted the expulsion of Senator Prince Y. Johnson from the County lawmaking body.Speaking during the induction ceremony of Nimba Superintendent, Mr. Fohn Zuaglay, Nimba Caucus Chair, Senator Thomas Grupee, announced that Sen. Johnson is being accepted back into the caucus as an advisor.Sen. Grupee’s remarks came after outgoing Supt. Dagadu acknowledged to the new administration that one of the challenges facing the county is the lack of unity among the citizens of Nimba.The outgoing Superintendent’s statement was soon buttressed by Internal Affairs Minister Morris Dukuly, who said during the installation address, “If Nimba united, it would be a more powerful county than the remaining 14 counties of Liberia.”Sen. Johnson, who did not say whether he agreed or disagreed, told Nimbaians at the ceremony that his removal from the caucus was “illegal and undemocratic.”He also said at the time of his removal few months ago, the Caucus insulted him through the media saying that he was “mentally ill and not fit to be part of them” and cautioned the caucus to reconsider their decision to lift the “so-called expulsion if they feel the need to seek medical advice concerning his senses.”Senator Prince Johnson previously served as the Caucus Chairman until Sen. Thomas Grupee from his NUDP party ‘took’ the chairmanship. A move Sen. Grupee said was done to allow Sen. Johnson time to prepare for the 2014 senatorial election.Last year, Sen. Johnson was expelled from the Nimba Legislative Caucus over disagreements between him and a majority of the Caucus members.One of the issues that brought confusion among members of the caucus was pertaining to the scraps around the ArcelorMittal Concessional area in Yekapa.Up this date, the issue is yet to be resolved.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

West Ham terminate Morrison’s contract ‘with immediate effect’

first_img 1 getty Ravel Morrison spent three seasons at West Ham, where he made just 24 appearances, scoring five goals center_img West Ham misfit Ravel Morrison has left Upton Park with immediate effect after the Premier League club announced the termination of his contract on Sunday.The 22-year-old midfielder was out of contract with the Hammers in the summer and has already agreed a four-year deal with Italian outfit Lazio, having trained with the Serie A side over January.Morrison signed for West Ham in January 2012 after a two-year stint at Manchester United, and made 24 appearances in three years for Sam Allardyce’s side.However, a series of disciplinary problems hampered his progress at Upton Park and he was loaned to Birmingham, Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff City.And while he enjoyed a period of first-team success last season, Allardyce had became increasingly frustrated with the youngster’s attitude and has now allowed him to leave.A club statement read: “West Ham United can confirm that the club have reached agreement with Ravel Morrison to terminate his contract with immediate effect.“The Hammers would like to wish Ravel every success in his future career.”Morrison signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with West Ham in February 2012 but spent the 2012-13 season on loan at Birmingham before breaking into Allardyce’s first team in the following campaign.He seemed a changed player following his return from St Andrew’s and became a key attacking asset for the Hammers, playing a starring role in West Ham’s 3-0 league victory at Tottenham, capping off a fine display with an exquisite solo goal.But Morrison has not figured in Allardyce’s plans of late, making just two appearances this season.He joined Cardiff in September on a three-month loan but his spell with the Bluebirds was largely unsuccessful, his stay in Wales being cut short after just seven appearances with Allardce admitting it “didn’t work for him” at the Championship side.last_img read more

DONEGAL SENATOR ASKS HIGH COURT TO HALT INVESTIGATION INTO HIS EXPENSES

first_imgDonegal Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has asked the High Court to halt an investigation into his expenses.Senator O’DomhnaillThe Standards in Public Office Commission was due to continue its investigation into alleged duplication of expenses claims.The action relates to an investigation concerning travel and subsistence claims made by the Fianna Fail Senator between 2006 and 2007, when he was a member of Donegal County Council. The Irish Times reports the Commission was due to begin a public session concerning the expenses matter last June but that did not proceed after Mr Ó Domhnaill secured leave from the High Court days earlier to bring his challenge.In his judicial review proceedings, Mr Ó Domhnaill claims the commission is not entitled to deal with the matters on grounds, he claims, they arose from an anonymous complaint by a member of the public.Alternatively, he wants orders requiring the case to be heard by a commission comprising members who are bilingual and able to conduct and understand the proceedings without the assistance of an interpreter.The refusal to provide a bilingual tribunal amounts to treating him as a foreigner in his own country, he argues. He alleges he will be disadvantaged if an interpreter is necessary to translate the evidence and submissions given on his behalf in Irish. Translator evidence is not similar to direct evidence and he would be marginalised, he claims.The refusal to provide a bilingual tribunal amounts to treating him as a foreigner in his own country instead of a person who speaks the first official language of Ireland, he argues.The proceedings, brought against the Commission, the Minister for the Environment and the State, were conducted in Irish before Mr Justice Gerard Hogan over two days. After hearing final submissions from the sides today, he reserved judgment.In opposing the case, the Commission and State contend the complaint being investigated by it relates to alleged duplication of expenses claims and the investigation is in the public interest.The Commission says the complaint before it was made in a letter dated May 28th 2012 sent to it by the Mayor and County Manager of Donegal County Council following an investigation by the two men of a referral made to them by the Ethics Registrar of the Council, the Commission claims. While acknowledging that information in an anonymous letter had prompted the Ethics Registrar to examine matters, the Commission contends the complaint being investigated by it is not a referral of that anonymous letter by the Mayor and County Manager but rather a complaint by those men arising from their view certain specified acts set out in their report may have been done by Mr Ó Domhnaill.The Commission also denies the Senator is entitled to orders requiring members of the Commission hearing the matter should be bilingual.It insists it has made every effort to facilitate his wish to conduct his side of the hearing in Irish but there is no constitutional right for citizens to a bilingual court or tribunal who choose to conduct their business in Irish.As there is no requirement in the Constitution for judges or members of the Oireachtas to be bilingual, that requirement should not be imposed on Commission members, the defendants insist. Mr Ó Domhnaill had from August 2011 until last March, when he changed solicitors, engaged with and addressed matters related to the expenses issue in English, it is claimed.DONEGAL SENATOR ASKS HIGH COURT TO HALT INVESTIGATION INTO HIS EXPENSES was last modified: November 7th, 2013 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)Tags:expensesHIGH COURTSENATOR BRIAN O DOMHNAILLlast_img read more
