Deadly Prison RiotBy Shemuel FanfairIn light of prisoners of the Camp Street penitentiary who expressed that marijuana, among other contraband items, helps “to cool themItems seized at the Camp Street Prisondown”, the Commission of Inquiry report into the fatal Camp Street Prison fire observed that systems for the rehabilitation of substance abuse inmates were not put in place.According to the report, commissioners noted that the law stipulates that persons who are convicted of narcotics offences should, under direction of a magistrate, attend “recovery courses” at Special Unit to be established by the Ministry of Health. However, it was pointed out that no such unit came into operation.Under the section it was stated: “The provision in the Narcotics Act for persons convicted of narcotics offences to be directed by theThe Camp Street Prisonmagistrate to attend recovery courses at a specialised Unit has never been made viable due to the Ministry of Health never having created the Unit.”It was further pointed out by the commissioners that the absence of this unit meant that the already burdened Prison Service was forced to address this problem without the availability of the requisite professional resources.Responding to concerns on how the non-establishment of this specialised unit would have affected the wellbeing of prisoners, attorney who represented the Prison Service Selwyn Pieters on Monday pointed to other jurisdictions where Drug Treatment Courts exist, whichAttorney Selwyn Pietershave the mandate to oversee cases of drug offenders who “agree to participate in treatment” for associated substance abuse problems.“In Canada, the United Kingdom, even Trinidad and Tobago, there are Drug Treatment Courts that deal with offenders or persons in conflict with the law who have criminogenic issues that are directly linked to their addiction,” he noted.At the 3rd Graduation ceremony of the Drug Treatment Court in the twin-island republic, T&T’s Chief Justice Ivor Archie noted that Drug Treatment Courts are an excellent model for the incorporation of the principle of alternatives to incarceration, guided by the public health approach.”On March 2 a search at the Camp Street Prison unearthed a barrage of contraband items with several quantities of drugs being confiscated. Attorney Pieters rejected the supposition that heavy withdrawal symptoms from the sized drugs contributed to the rioting.“There was no evidence led before the Commission of Inquiry to support a link or a nexus to any assertion that either withdrawal from marijuana or addictions to marijuana led to the events on March 02 and March 03, 2016,” Pieters told this newspaper.When asked if the supposed medical conditions and non-establishment of the unit could absolve inmates of some of their criminal responsibility associated with the deadly prison fires, Pieters reasoned that it was in fact the “take-down” of two inmates which led to ghastly disturbances.The CoI report further pointed out that indiscipline was well a part of the prisoners’ culture as the act of prisoners lighting fires as means of drawing attention to their causes are grossly irresponsible, despite their grievances over extended trial delays.“It is strongly believed that the timing of highlighting their grievances was directly related to the contraband items which were confiscated during the Joint Services’ search on March 02, 2016,” observed the Commission.It was further noted that inmates led by prisoner Shaka Mckenize created “an unnecessary hostile environment” in the Capital A Division by “reacting to the officers operational procedure of extracting ring leaders”.“Prisoners acted recklessly in lighting fires to highly combustible material –mattresses- which give off toxins and act as accelerants. The burning of mattresses in such an enclosed environment was dangerous,” a section of the report pointed out.
After leaving Guyana for some months, a 53-year-old was arrested shortly after returning and hauled before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts to answer to a fraud charge.Wayne Foster stood before Magistrate Judy Latchman on Monday and denied that on January 25, 2018 while he was in the vicinity of George and Bent Streets, Wortmanville, Georgetown, he was solely entrusted by Trevor Brummel with $720,000 to buy an ice machine. However, he reportedly converted the money to his own use and benefit.In an attempt to defend himself, the East La Penitence, Georgetown man told the court that himself and the Virtual Complainant had accumulated monies together to buy the machine, but had encountered difficulties in getting the machine to Guyana from Trinidad.However, the prosecution is contending that the defendant left Guyana after he took the cash from Brummell. After listening to the prosecution, Foster asked the court for a chance to reimburse the money. He was released on $150,000 bail, and the case scheduled to continue on November 12, 2018.
Guyanese Kevon Wiggins aiming for the netsThe National Sports Commission (NSC) extended congratulations to the Guyana National Senior Men’s Basketball Team on their historic win of the 2018 Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Championship Tournament on Saturday, June 30, in Suriname.The official statement, sent on Sunday afternoon, hailed the efforts of the Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF), Head Coach Junior Hercules, Assistant Coach Dennis Clarke and Team Manager Nigel Hinds for their robust programme, which continues to develop the young and talented players.
But he tore Red Star apart with two goals in the space of two first-half minutes at the Parc des Princes, the first a delightful curling free-kick, before completing his hat-trick from another stunning free-kick late on.“I really liked the effort made by the whole team, but Neymar was sensational,” said Tuchel.“You can feel that he is hungry in every match, that he wants to be decisive, win the ball back, be at the heart of the play.“He is one of the best players in Europe and that is very, very important for us.”Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe also scored as PSG bounced back from a 3-2 defeat at Liverpool two weeks ago to register their first points in Group C.But seeing Neymar play with a smile on his face again is especially encouraging for the French champions.“Winning is the main thing that I want, but when I score goals I am even happier,” said Neymar, who described the game as his and PSG’s best yet this season.Paris have a double-header to come next against Napoli — who beat Liverpool 1-0 on Wednesday — and the Italians will offer a sterner test than Red Star, the 1991 European Cup winners who had been unbeaten in 34 games before arriving at the Parc des Princes.The Serbians grabbed a consolation goal through Marko Marin, but they could not cope with the home side’s front four, a quartet who cost PSG almost 530 million euros ($610 million) in transfer fees alone.Such was the imbalance between the teams that PSG were never likely to be troubled despite playing this game with one end of the Parc des Princes closed, a punishment following incidents in the defeat against Real Madrid in March.– Free-kick double –This time trouble broke out after the match, with several hundred individuals involved in clashes with police outside the stadium, but the night was all about Neymar. He won the free-kick which led to the opener in the 20th minute, the Brazilian getting up to curl a fine strike past Canadian goalkeeper Milan Borjan from 25 yards.Kylian Mbappe combined with Neymar for the Brazilian’s second goal and later found the net himself © AFP / FRANCK FIFEThe hosts scored again two minutes later as Neymar found Mbappe before meeting the return pass with a lovely finish.That was Neymar’s ninth goal in nine games this season between Ligue 1 and Champions League.The former Barcelona forward’s performance was also notable for a brilliant nutmeg on Milos Degenek that created another shooting opportunity just before half-time.PSG had already scored twice more by then, with Cavani finding the net on 37 minutes with the aid of a deflection after some brilliant footwork and Di Maria guiding in a Thomas Meunier cross in the 42nd minute.Neymar produced more magic in the build-up to PSG’s fifth goal 20 minutes from time, finding Juan Bernat, who squared for Mbappe to finish.Red Star supporters were given something to celebrate as Marin, the former Germany winger whose career lost its way after a move to Chelsea, blasted home in the 74th minute.But Neymar had the last word, curling another free-kick high into the net to complete his hat-trick nine minutes from time, taking him into double figures for the season.Tuchel then immediately substituted his star player, who walked off to a standing ovation.The PSG coach will now be desperate for Neymar to keep performing like this.Tuchel added: “It’s easier when you’re in a good mood. He is on form in his game and now he is almost at 100 percent physically.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Neymar celebrates after scoring the free-kick that completed his hat-trick against Red Star Belgrade © AFP / Anne-Christine POUJOULATParis, France, Oct 3 – Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel described Neymar as “sensational” after the world’s most expensive player scored a hat-trick in a sublime display to lead Paris Saint-Germain to a 6-1 rout of Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Wednesday.The Brazilian admitted before this game that he still did not feel back to 100 percent after the foot injury which required surgery and saw him miss the last three months of last season.
FORT NELSON, B.C. – The RCMP are still pushing for information from the public after a double homicide near the Liard Hot Springs.In an afternoon press conference, the RCMP said they are looking for help to confirm what happened to Chynna Noelle Deese of the United States and Lucas Robertson Fowler of Australia. The RCMP did confirm that Lucas had been living in British Columbia and Chynna was visiting him and two were travelling around B.C.- Advertisement -An older blue minivan with Alberta plates was found at the scene and police would like to speak with anyone who may have seen the van or render assistance. The RCMP hope that information about the van will help them to determine whether this was a crime of opportunity for a targeted event.The RCMP have released photos of the van found the scene of a double homicide near the Liard River Hotsprings.The RCMP have released photos of the van found the scene of a double homicide near the Liard River Hotsprings.Rumours have been circulating since international media published a story suggesting the case was linked to a serial killer. The RCMP confirmed at this time they have found nothing that would connect this homicide to any current or past cases.Advertisement In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, the RCMP said, “We recognize this news is troubling for the entire community and absolutely appreciate there are concerns for safety, in an area that is popular with nature enthusiasts and tourists. This investigation is in its very infancy and it is not yet clear whether Lucas and Chynna were targeted or is this was a crime of opportunity. At this point, we have nothing to indicate that their deaths are linked to any other active and ongoing investigations in the area, or if there is a heightened risk to public safety. Our investigators will consider any and all information carefully as the investigation progresses.”The RCMP have confirmed members of Lucas’ family is travelling to Canada and that his father is an active member of the New South Wales Police Force.

Jose Mourinho’s agent has denied a deal has been struck for his client to replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United manager.Mourinho, who was sacked by Chelsea last week, has been linked with the position at Old Trafford after United dropped out of the top four and crashed out of the Champions League at the group stage.But Mourinho’s agent Jorge Mendes, speaking to Globoesporte, insisted there had been no approach from United for his client’s services.“There is nothing,” Mendes said when asked about reports the former Chelsea manager had agreed to take over at Old Trafford.“We don’t know what will happen in the future, but now there is no agreement. There isn’t an official proposal either, that’s not true.”Mourinho is understood to be spending the week in Portugal with his family, but he is looking for a quick return to management and with Van Gaal’s United floundering, the 52-year-old could realise his dream of taking over at Old Trafford if the club’s board decides to dispense with the current manager.Some fans clearly want that to happen.Cries of Mourinho’s name could be heard around Old Trafford on Saturday when United slumped to a 2-1 defeat to Norwich.United were booed off the pitch following their third straight defeat, which left them in fifth position.Three weeks ago, senior United figures insisted Van Gaal had the board’s full support, but after a run of six matches without a win, they have now fallen quiet.It is understood the United board were disappointed in particular at Van Gaal’s failure to lead the team through what was viewed as a relatively easy Champions League group containing PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfbsurg.And a second straight defeat in the league last weekend meant United will head into the busy Christmas schedule outside the top four.Although United could stomach another year out of the Champions League in a financial sense, the damage to the club’s standing in the game would be hit if they were not in Europe’s top club competition next season.And with Mourinho available and willing to take the job, there has been a flood of speculation linking the two-time Champions League winner with United.United will also be aware Pep Guardiola is available in the summer, although he is rumoured to be ready to move to Manchester City instead following his stint with Bayern Munich.On Wednesday, Van Gaal will take questions on his future for the first time since Mourinho was sacked.The Dutchman is due to conduct his weekly press conference at the AON Training Complex in Carrington at 3:30pm.United travel to Stoke on Boxing Day before hosting Chelsea on December 28.Speaking after the loss to Norwich, Van Gaal insisted he had the backing of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and his own players.”Ed was very fast out of the dressing room but I feel that support, yes,” the 64-year-old said.”The most important support is from the players because the players have to do it on the pitch and the chemistry between the players and the manager and his staff is very important.” Jose Mourinho is odds on to pip Ryan Giggs to the job 1
BONUS: WILLIE MCATEERA COUNTY Donegal businessman earned €800,000 a year before the bank he worked for collapsed.Willie McAteer, from Rathmullan, was seen as a great negotiator at Anglo-Irish Bank. At top executive at the bank, he was charged earlier this week with permitting Anglo to give financial assistance to Patricia Quinn, her five adult children and ten senior clients of the bank who became known as the ”Maple ten”, to enable them all to buy shares in the bank.Mr McAteer earned €2.19m during his last three years with the bank, including an €800,000 bonus in 2007, just a year before the bank had to be bailed out by the Government.Mr McAteer stepped down from the Anglo board when the bank was nationalised, and has kept a very low business profile since.He is not listed as a director of any companies and is not thought to have taken up any new role since Anglo.His €1m home in Dublin’s leafy Rathgar has been on the market for some time.Yesterday former Anglo boss Sean Fitzpatrick was also charged with similar offences.ACCUSED DONEGAL BANKER EARNED €800K BONUS A YEAR BEFORE BANK COLLAPSE was last modified: July 24th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:ACCUSED DONEGAL BANKER EARNED €800K BONUS A YEAR BEFORE BANK COLLAPSE
