Judge Eva Mappy Morgan heads the three-paneled bench of judges at the Commercial Court.Mr. Amos Brosius, one of the contestant managers of Ducor Petroleum Incorporated (DPI), has dismissed as false and unfortunate reports that he persuaded several media outlets to accuse Judge Eva Mappy Morgan of withdrawing, without his consent, US$3.4 million out of the entity’s escrow account at the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI).The escrow account was opened based on a decision of the Commercial Court at the Temple of Justice where Morgan served as a chief judge of the three-man panel when Brosius was sued there for proper accounting of US$56 million worth of petroleum products allegedly supplied by Monrovia Oil Trading Company (MOTC) to DPI where Brosius was a manager.Brosius’ statement was made when he appeared before the Court on a contempt charge to show evidence relating to accusations carried in the media suggesting that the judge, without his authorization, withdrew within a seven-month period US$3.4 million from his account.At his contempt proceedings on Monday, October 1, Brosius, who claims to own major shares of DPI, told the court that his statement was misquoted by the radio stations.“At no time did I ever accuse you, Judge Morgan, of stealing US$3.4 million from my company’s account at the LBDI,” Brosius told the crowded courtroom.“At no time did I ever accuse you, Judge Morgan, of stealing US$3.4 million from my company’s account at the LBDI,” Amos Brosius told the crowded courtroom.Brosius also said he will not do anything to undermine the rule of law and disrespect the authority of courts throughout the country.“This was why I brought my case to the court, because I trust it, and I know this is the place where I can get justice and redress,” he told the court, representing himself during his contempt hearing.He was also ordered to produce evidence to support the allegation that Morgan allegedly stole the money within a period of seven months out of Ducor’s accounts and to show evidence that Judge Morgan was behind the sale of his homes and even appeared in the vicinity to visit the alleged purchaser of the property.Brosius however denied the allegations.Brosius, who is not a lawyer, opted to defend himself during the contempt proceedings. But shortly afterwards, Judge Morgan, the head judge of the three-judge panel, lifted the contempt charge based upon Brosius’ denial.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
An intelligence-led operation by ranks of the Guyana Police Force has resulted in the detention of one of their junior ranks on Wednesday after he was found to be in possession of a stolen motorcycle belonging to another member of the Force.The 21-year-old Constable of Friendship, East Bank Demerara, who is stationed at A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) claimed ownership of the motorcycle but produced no documentation. The motorcycle was reportedly fitted with a pair of false registration plates.Based on information received, the engine and chassis numbers of the motorcycle corresponded with that of a registration produced by another member of the Force who is also stationed in A Division and who alleged that his motorcycle bearing registration number CH 8132 was stolen from his yard in July 2017 at Dennis Street, Campbellville.A case file is being prepared and forwarded for legal advice.
Ravindranaught RambajueA construction worker, who told the Court that the $2M which he was accused of stealing from his boss was in fact repayment for a loan he had given, was on Thursday remanded to prison after being charged for embezzlement.Twenty-seven-year-old Ravindranaught Rambajue, of Suddie Housing Scheme, Region 3 (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.He was arrested two days ago at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) while heading to Dominica.The Police stated that on August 21, 2018, at Republic Park, East Bank Demerara, while being a clerk or servant of Amir Samad, he fraudulently embezzled a sum of $2M; which was taken into possession by himself on the account of his employer. Rambajue plead not guilty to the charge when it was read to him by the Chief Magistrate.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield told the Court that the defendant was employed by Samad for the past five years and that on the day in question, the victim wrote a Republic Bank cheque for $2M and handed it over to the defendant with the intention of him returning the money within a few months.However, after the agreed time elapsed, the victim made several calls to the defendant’s phone but all went unanswered. Samad then reported the matter to the Police.The Prosecutor added that on June 25, 2019, the defendant was arrested at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) while attempting to board a flight destined to Dominica.An investigation was done and he was charged with the offence following advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).Rambajue, in addressing the Court, stated that he was working for the victim for several years and that Samad had owed him $3.1 million.He further added that he threatened to leave the job and that is when his boss paid him $2M and asked him to stay.However, after listening to the case presented by the accused, the Prosecutor strongly objected to bail being granted because of the serious nature of the allegation and the time it took to locate the defendant.The Prosecutor also highlighted the fact that at the time of the defendant’s arrest, he was attempting to leave the country. On those grounds, the Prosecutor believed that if bail was granted, the accused would not return to Court for the trial.The magistrate, after listening to both sides, remanded Rambajue to prison until July 4. The matter was transferred to the Providence Magistrate’s Courts.
Minister Varadkar officially opening the Coast Guard station in Killybegs yesterday. Now Malin Head is to get a massive IT upgradeDD Exclusive: The future of Malin Head Coast Guard station is guaranteed after a promise from Minister Leo Varadkar that it will share in a €1M upgrade of its IT systems, Donegal Daily can reveal.More than €330,000 of new technology is on its way to the station in the next few months, with the rest of the money being spent upgrading both Dublin HQ and Valencia Island Coast Guard station.Irish Coast Guard Director Chris Reynolds shocked an audience in Killybegs yesterday where their new state-of-the art Coast Guard station was opened. “I am delighted to have this opportunity to tell you all that a new €1M upgrade of our IT systems will be announced shortly and Malin Head will share in that,” he said.Afterwards Donegal TD Joe McHugh said the official announcement, which will be made in a few weeks, was proof Malin Head is now safe from cuts.“The fact is that Minister Varadkar came to Malin Head Coast Guard station himself to see the work done there and he guaranteed its future afterwards,” said Deputy McHugh last night.“Unfortunately there were unfounded rumours since that the station was still under threat and that just wasn’t true but those claims took on a life of their own and this €330,000 spend on new technology at Malin Head will puts those rumours to bed once and for all. “It is a testament to the fantastic work done 24 hours every day and 365 days of each year by the dedicated staff at Malin Head who are heroes, not just to people around Ireland every day, but to seafarers around the world.”Minister Varadkar said he was “delighted” that Malin Head will get a one third share in the new technology upgrade, adding: “We are working all the time to upgrade our Coast Guard services with the aim of opening a new station every year.“The IT upgrade is also part of our commitment to the service.” €1M PROMISE GUARANTEES FUTURE OF MALIN HEAD COAST GUARD STATION was last modified: March 29th, 2014 by John2Share 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:coast guardIT upgradeKillybegsMalin Head

The Sharks have been here before. So have their fans.Just last round, the SAP Center hosted one heck of an emotional roller coaster in Game 7 when San Jose came back from three goals down with less than 10 minutes left to defeat the Vegas Golden Knights.Tonight will be another do-or-die Game 7, though it couldn’t possibly be as dramatic as that was… or could it? The possible return of Joe Pavelski elevates the level of drama before the teams even take the ice for warmups.In our Sharks HQ …
You could make the case that the Raiders’ victory over the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday was the team’s zenith since the return of head coach Jon Gruden.And yet, you could make the case that the Raiders were not the most inspirational team on the field that night. That distinction went to Hayward’s Tennyson High School football squad which uncorked a halftime show for the ages.1980 as a matter of fact. Those Raiders made history, being the first wild card team to win a Super Bowl.Frankly …
31 July 2008Woolworths saw the introduction of reusable bags in 2004 as an opportunity to not only preserve the environment, but also to support new enterprise development, with their fabric bags being made for them by local factories – one of which started for the specific purpose of making Woolworths bags.It forms part of the company’s strategy to source products locally, where quality, quantity and consistency meet the expectations of their customers – while also enabling the company to support and encourage local business and entrepreneurship – which it has also identified as a key priority.“In line with our Good Business journey, Woolworths is committed to identifying opportunities for suppliers to grow with the business,” Woolworths general merchandise director Craig Ludwig said in a statement this week.“In addition to giving suppliers access to the marketplace, Woolworths also supports emerging suppliers with training that covers best practice in technical and business management skills, organisational development and financing where possible.”Woolworths Good business journey is a comprehensive five-year plan announced in 2007 to help people and planet by incorporating a series of challenging targets and commitments centred on four key priorities, including accelerating transformation, driving social development, enhancing Woolworths environmental focus and addressing climate change.IsikhwamaCurrently, Woolworths’ main supplier of reusable bags is Isikhwama, which was established in Maitland, Cape Town to produce bags for Woolworths and employ semi-skilled and unskilled people who were previously out of work.Isikhwama owner Trevor Pothercy said that while starting any new business was a challenge, their close partnership with Woolworths had helped his company to grow from strength to strength, and that it now produced over a million reusable fabric bags for Woolworths each year – providing employment for 70 people.“The success of the project has exceeded our most optimistic projections,” Pothercy said. “We have been able to train unskilled workers through this project – arguably the most vulnerable members of the labour sector.”Greater Uitenhage Sewing CooperativeThe second supplier, the Greater Uitenhage Sewing Cooperative (Gusco), is an amalgamation of three informal community sewing groups, formed as a result of the Uitenhage Despatch Development Initiative.The company, based in Uitenhage in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro, has been producing and supplying reusable fabric bags for Woolworths since September 2005.Woolworths was Gusco’s first big retail client and continues to be the anchor client, buying about 260 000 reusable bags from the company each year – and enabling the cooperative to employ 27 full-time machinists and a number of seasonal employees.Strong partnerships needed for growthNafeesa Dinie, head of the Uitenhage Despatch Development Initiative’s small, medium and micro enterprises unit, said they hoped to grow Gusco’s business by attracting and securing additional contracts, as well as to diversify the production line.The initiative has also held initial discussions with Woolworths regarding future potential growth opportunities.She said that through forging strong partnerships and implementing a structured best practice business development model, a solid business foundation has been established, resulting in a successfully and commercially viable cooperative contributing to the local economy and job creation.“The ladies of Gusco have come a long way from being unemployed, to being business owners and this has been achieved in a relatively short period with the support of all stakeholders,” Dinie said. “Woolworths was key to this success, and this clearly signals Woolworths’ commitment to support and contribute to sustainable community enterprise development in our country.”SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo material
