NRC, Others, Hail SEGAL for Diligent Services

first_imgThe Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), an international NGO, partnering with the government of Liberia in many sectors, has extolled the Security Guard Agency of Liberia (SEGAL) for what it calls: “professional services, provided to them since 2008.”In a certificate of appreciation awarded SEGAL and presented by Mrs. Masietta Estella Taylor, who served as keynote speaker at the appreciation program of SEGAL Guard Force on April 12, the NRC described SEGAL’s services as highly professional.“This certificate is awarded to SEGAL for highly professional security services provided to NRC offices and guest houses in Montserrado, Margibi, Bomi, Bong, Lofa, Nimba, Cape Mount, and Grand Gedeh counties,” the certificate reads.The NRC’s statement was also buttressed by other SEGAL clients including Oxfam, Access Bank, Ecobank, and Save the Children and among others.“SEGAL has performed excellently in its call-to-duty, and had gone beyond their response regimen,” said a representative from Action on Armed Violence.The administration of SEGAL has honored scores of their guard-force for their hard work since 2013.The honorees certificates were inscribed: “in acknowledgment of your good services and hard work throughout the year, 2013/14, rendered the above named entity, the management and staff of SEGAL are pleased to present to you this certificate of appreciation.”Mrs. Marietta Estella Taylor, who served as guest speaker, described a good employee as: “one that displays such qualities as punctuality; one who has a positive attitude toward others; one who possesses flexibility, motivation, and the ability to perform assigned tasks.”She added that the appreciation energizes and motivate others doing similar work while providing them with a role model that positively impresses upon his or her co-workers the importance of work in our community, the nation, or anywhere in the world.SEGAL is a Liberian private security firm providing security for many entities, including Mittal, NRC, Oxfam, Save the Children, FED, and Ecobank among others.SEGAL is said to be one of the largest employers in Liberia presently, employing over 1,600 men and women.In Yekapa alone, SEGAL has over 600 employees serving as guards to Arcelor Mittal facilities, which lay within the proximity of two borders; Guinea and Ivory Coast.As a part of the motivation strategy, the General Manager Mr. Momo Cyrus, had announced a 10% increase in the salary of the employees of SEGAL.He assured the honorees of more support to make them become the best security officers in the country.He praised SEGAL’s clients for their trust which has the program possible.“It is the money you give for our service that help us earn this occasion that honors a hard-working force and we assure you of better services in time to come,” he said.At a graduation ceremony of SEGAL Security Training Class Six in January this year, in Yekapa, Former Nimba County, Supt Christiana Dagadu hailed SEGAL for being so committed to its call-to-duty.She said, SEGAL services have created jobs for many Liberians, including citizens of Nimba County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Limiting Hospitality to Fight Ebola

first_imgOur Defense Correspondent C.Y. Kwanue last Friday reported that Ebola had hit the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL)  in a big way.  Within a week the AFL lost eight stalwart and well trained soldiers to the deadly virus. How did they get it all in the way in that secluded army barracks? One of the male soldiers received a female visitor who was believed to have been Ebola affected.  But he did not know this.  It is she who spread the deadly disease in the barracks.This is a cogent, alarming and serious reminder that we Liberians, known the world over as among the most hospitable people, especially in Africa, have to be very careful today whom we welcome into our homes, places of work, our communities, towns, cities and country.  In the Kesselly Barracks last week, one visitor caused the death of eight of our soldiers.  We hope this is warning enough.Just about 10 days ago in Bensonville, Montserrado County, a similar incident almost happened.  Four men, believed to have links with Guinea, entered a village and moved into a vacant hut there.  They were immediately spotted and approached by one of the town’s elders who asked them what they were doing there.  They told him they were diamond diggers and came to prospect for the mineral because people had told them that Bensonville was “diamond-rich.”The elder promptly told them that in this state of emergency in Liberia, which the President declared several weeks ago as part of the fight against the deadly Ebola virus, people were not supposed to be moving from place to place, but have been advised to stay where they are until this crisis is over.  So the four men were asked to leave, and they did.Liberians, with very few exceptions, are very hospitable people, who are willing, ready and able to welcome any stranger into their towns and homes, and offer them water, food and even a place to pass the night before continuing their journey the following morning.  But for now, not anymore because it is simply    too dangerous.  Who knows   what could have happened in that Bensonville village full of children had those four strangers remained there? Today, people throughout Liberia know that as soon as they spot a stranger in their midst, they should seriously question that person, and persuade him or her to return to where they came from until we have overcome this Ebola virus.  We can no longer take chances.Ebola has terribly affected our traditional cultural practices, which are rooted in love and hospitality.  Now, even in church or in the mosque, people can greet one another only from a distance.  No hand shaking, no snapper of the fingers—the symbol of our friendship—no hugging or kissing, only clasping of the palms and bowing from a distance, in the same way it is done in Far Eastern culture.This has to be done to protect ourselves and one another and keep the virus from spreading.  Here, we invoke the age-old dictum (truism), HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY.   If one knows one has been in contact with anyone who may have been detected of the virus, be should honest and say so and, like the two outstanding women from the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, Dr.  Bernice Dahn, Chief Medical Officer, and Deputy Minister Yah Zolia.  These women had come into contact with Ebola-infected people; so the two MOH officials, without even being asked, immediately quarantined themselves from their families, their offices and their friends.That is what Eric Duncan did not do—he lied on the form he filled out at Roberts International Airport (RIA) and jumped on the plane to the United States, where he immediately started spreading the virus.We have to suspend our  traditional hospitality for now, but certainly treat people with utmost courtesy, respect,  WITHOUT COMING TOO CLOSE, WITHOUT TOUCHING.    This we must do until Ebola is driven out of Liberia.      Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DEA Should Not Take Obi for Granted

first_imgThe name Obi is not new to Liberia’s criminal justice system. Most Liberians living today were not yet born when in late 1969 a Nigerian Chemistry teacher named Justin Obi from Cuttington College and Divinity School (now Cuttington University) stormed the offices of Episcopal Bishop Dillard Browne and gunned him down in cold blood. Also killed on the spot was the bishop’s treasurer, Mr.Nader, a Lebanese national. Justin then attempted to flee to neighboring Guinea, but was apprehended in Gbarnga after Cuttington students spotted him and alerted the police.He was prosecuted, convicted of murder and President William R. Tolbert, who succeeded the deceased President Tubman in July 1971, signed Obi’s death warrant. He was later hanged at the Monrovia Central Prison at South Beach, Monrovia.Another Obi has appeared on the national scene. This time, the alleged crime is admittedly far from murder, but it is indeed a slow killer of our youth. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) announced Wednesday that it had seized from a Nigerian national, “a sophisticated illicit drug manufacturing equipment.” The seizure took place at the Free Port of Monrovia.At a press conference in his Fiamah office, DEA Director Anthony Souh displayed what he called the drug manufacturing machine, along with a pack of molding papers known as Rizla.The arrest of the equipment, according to the Director, “poses serious challenges to the Agency because instead of importing illicit drugs, those in the illegal trade now intend to manufacture illegal substances in the country.”Further narrating the story, Director Souh told reporters that on October 2, 2015 a company called Wisdom Enterprise, owned by one Damain Obi, a Nigerian national and located at the CaldwellBridge in Logan Town, Bushrod Island, imported into Liberia through the Free Port of Monrovia a 20-foot container of assorted goods from the Republic of China. The equipment confiscated came in declared as water pumps, but he described them as “some form of filter with all kinds of devices, which constitutes ‘False Declaration,’ an offense under the Customs Law of Liberia.”Wisdom Enterprise was duly fined on the spot. The DEA officers discovered that the so-called water pumps or water filters were “clandestine devices,” with the initials ‘RPS I.’“These machines,” according to the DEA, “can also be used to convert marijuana to hashish or hash. They also have the capacity to mix different chemicals through heating into other forms of illicit drugs.”When questioned about the usage of the machines, however, the importer “reportedly decided to beg and allegedly offered an initial amount of US$500 to keep everything secret until they reached the suspect’s business center. . .”That in itself is an admission of guilt, but, of course, when the matter reaches court, the importer will most likely deny ever begging or offering the DEA officers a bribe.Due to the gravity of the situation, the DEA Commander and his men on duty requested a Writ of Search and Seizure on the importer’s premises. But by the time they reached the premises, “the importer had apparently received a tip-off and moved the two machines to an unknown location.”This alarming story is a clear indication that the government of Liberia needs to take its Drug Enforcement Agency much more seriously by giving its officers greater logistical and financial support if the DEA is to deal effectively with this growing drug menace in the country.For it is a fact that these dangerous drug dealers are now determined not only to continue their trade but to manufacture drugs within the country and further harm our young people.As we said in an earlier editorial, drug dealers have a lot of money to spread around. The DEA and the court system need to be empowered to handle effectively these cases if the war on drugs must be won.Damain Obi, his cohorts and all others like them must be taken very seriously and the full weight of the law must be applied to save our country and people from this terrible menace that tends to alienate our youth from reality and drive them further from the track of progress and development.

Absentee Judges, Magistrates to Be Punished

first_imgThe absence of judges and magistrates from Monday’s opening of Criminal Courts, which set the stage for judicial actors to discuss important matters relating to corruption that impedes the integrity of the judiciary, shocked Chief Justice Francis Korkpor, who could not hold back his frustration.The problem came to light when the clerk of Criminal Court ‘C’, Knowless W. Shain, was instructed to make a roll call of judges and magistrates, as it is usually done, requiring them to answer to their respective names.The ceremony was the formal opening of the November 2016 Term of Criminal Courts, A, B, C and D, held at the Temple of Justice.Chief Justice Korkpor noticed that most judges and magistrates chose to stay away from the occasion, and later mandated Judge Roosevelt Z. Willie to submit the names of the absentees to him. “I know you don’t have the power to punish them, but I do; we at the Supreme Court do have (the power).“I am going to take a tougher stance to get the judiciary back on track; and we, five justices, have already sent signals that we are going to get serious and take an appropriate action against them, even if it is a minimum fine or penalty so that it would serve as a deterrent. “I am surprised by the numbers. I thought that everybody would have been here because of the massive announcement, but I am very shocked by the number,” Justice Korkpor said.He added: “We justices have taken steps in the past years to improve substantially the conditions of service of judges, and we are going to make sure that they attend all of our functions.”Some of judges and magistrates that were not present included three magistrates from the Paynesville City Court, two associate magistrates from Careysburg City Court and Arthington City Court and five traffic court judges.According to the justice mandate, however, judges and magistrates who were out of the country on official duties or sick should not be included on the absentee list.“This occasion is intended for you to attend and you must be here to listen to appropriate messages regarding your activities, the work you do and listen to important messages from the Supreme Court,” Justice Korkpor said.“Here you can listen to responses from justice actors about the judiciary and you can learn from them, so it is important that you assemble here.”Justice Korkpor, however, lauded those who attended the ceremony on Monday.“The attendance here is good because this occasion requires all justice actors, especially at the court level, to convene here during the opening of criminal courts,” Justice Korkpor said. Meanwhile, after the ceremony, judges, lawyers and magistrates were seen making calls to some of their colleagues who were absent from the ceremony.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Video: Man United transfer target who ‘should have won Ballon d’Or’

first_img Bastian Schweinsteiger could leave Bayern Munich 1 Bastian Schweinsteiger could move abroad when his Bayern contract expires in 2016.At least that is what is being reported in the latest gossip pages. Apparently the World Cup winning midfielder has suggested in his upcoming autobiography he will seek out a new challenge.Schweinsteiger played under Man United manager Louis van Gaal at Bayern between 2009 and 2011 and news Schweinsteiger reportedly wants out of Germany will delight his former boss, who has been linked with moves for new central midfielders, in particular the injury-prone Kevin Strootman.Van Gaal says it was him who told the 30-year-old he would be best suited playing in the middle of the park rather than out wide.“He did not fit in the position of left-winger for me,” Van Gaal once explained to Fifa.com. “At that time, we played with two holding midfielders and a No10, which was [Thomas] Muller. Then [Schweinsteiger] played in a holding role and found he liked the game more than ever.”Former Old Trafford midfielder Paul Scholes even used his Independent column to claim Schweinsteiger should have picked up the 2014 Ballon d’Or gong prior to Cristiano Ronaldo’s triumph and on-stage scream.“If I was to pick my standout it would have to be, in a World Cup year, a World Cup winner, he said. “Thomas Muller, Toni Kroos and Bastian Schweinsteiger were all excellent, but if I had to pick one as my player of the year it would be Schweinsteiger.”Check him out some of his best bits in the videos below.last_img read more

Premier League clubs ranked by their best ever foreign signing – worst to first

first_img 2. Manchester United – Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) – Plucked from Portugal as a gawky but skilful teenager, the Red Devils and Sir Alex Ferguson helped develop him into one of the greatest players the world has ever seen. His six-season spell at Old Trafford included three Premier League titles, a Champions League and a Ballon d’Or in 2008. 15. Hull City – Geovanni (Brazil) – The Brazil midfield star, once a Barcelona star, arrived at the KC Stadium in 2008 on the back of a stint at Man City. He was an instant success and in a memorable debut campaign for Hull scored stunning goals away at Arsenal and Tottenham as they avoided relegation. He couldn’t do the same the next year, though and his contract was cancelled in the summer of 2010. 12. Swansea City – Wilfried Bony (Ivory Coast) – A £12m signing from Vitesse Arnhem in 2013, the Ivorian was an instant hit in Wales, banging home 17 Premier League goals in his first campaign. He only spent half of the 2014/15 season with the club but he still managed nine strikes in 20 top-flight appearances before being sold for £28m. 20 20 20 20. Bournemouth – Max Gradel (Ivory Coast) – Click the right arrow above to find out which Premier League club’s best foreign player came out on top… – Bournemouth haven’t had too many foreign players grace their club, but of those who have played at Dean Cout, we consider Gradel the best. He did well on loan at the club across two seasons from 2007 onwards, and while his current spell has been hampered by injury, he’s still looking top notch. 20 14. Crystal Palace – Julian Speroni (Argentina) – Signed from Dundee in 2004 for just £750,000, he became a hugely popular figure at the club, despite a rocky start. He’s won the supporters’ player of the year award four times at Selhurst Park and had a testimonial last summer for his incredible service. 20 20 20 7. Tottenham Hotspur – Luka Modric (Croatia) – For four campaigns, the graceful Croatian lit up White Hart Lane with his effortless playmaking abilities. His stunning displays helped Spurs make the 2010/11 Champions League, where he starred against Inter Milan on home soil. Eventually, Tottenham could no longer resist offers from big clubs and he joined Real Madrid for £30m, where he has won the Champions League twice. 17. West Bromwich Albion – Youssouf Mulumbu (DR Congo) – After a loan spell at the Hawthorns, Mulumbu joined from Paris Saint-Germain in a £175,000 deal back in 2009. He was named supporters’ and players’ player of the year in 2010/11 and runner up for both the awards in 2013/14. 4. Liverpool – Luis Suarez (Liverpool) – Signed for £25m at the same time the Reds spent £35m, he proved to be a real bargain. He only won the 2012 League Cup during his spell with the club but his sensational final two seasons, which saw him score 61 goals in 81 appearances, almost won them their first Premier League title since 1990. 20 16. Watford – Heidar Helguson (Iceland) – Graham Taylor spent a club-record £1.5m on the Icelandic star in 1999 and, while he had his ups and his downs, he is considered a hero at Vicarage Road. A goal-laden 2004/05 campaign saw him earn a move to the Premier League with Fulham. 20 6. Leicester City – Riyad Mahrez (Algeria) – An incredible and inspiring Premier League season last time out saw the Foxes win the title against all the odds and the Algerian star was one of the main reasons behind the win. He won the PFA’s Players’ Player of the Year award for his heroics and now has the world at his feet. 20 20 3. Chelsea – Didier Drogba (Ivory Coast) – Signed for £24m in 2004, the striker certainly gave the Blues their money’s worth. His 164 goals in 381 appearances over two spells helped the club to four Premier League titles, three League Cups, and four FA Cups. When it came to playing at Wembley, no one was able to stop the Ivorian. A Champions League win in 2012 cemented his name into legend. 20 19. Burnley – Brian Jensen (Denmark) – The Beast spent 10 campaigns in and out of the first-team at Turf Moor, making more than 300 appearances in all competitions. He constantly battled for the No.1 spot, even when other goalkeepers were brought in to replace him. 20 10. Middlesbrough – Juninho (Brazil) – The Little Fella is thought of as one of the greatest Boro players ever following three spells with the Teesiders. His displays in the 1996/97 season saw him named runner up to Gianfranco Zola for the FWA’s Player of the Year award, despite the club being relegated back to the First Division. A loan spell in 1999/00 saw him able to help the club avoid relegation. Meanwhile, in his third spell with Boro from 2002 to 2004 they won the League Cup and he’s still considered a legend today. 20 9. Everton – Tim Cahill (Australia) – Snapped up from Millwall for just £1.5m, Cahill proved to be one of the Premier League’s best ever bargain. The Australian helped them to the 2009 FA Cup final and was a general nuisance for opponents in England, where his heading ability was hugely admired. 13. Stoke City – Asmir Begovic (Bosnia) – Five full campaigns with the Potters saw him become one of the Premier League’s top shot-stoppers. He even scored a goal against Southampton with a 97.5-yard kick beating opposite number Artur Boruc in 2013, which was recognised as a Guinness World Record in 2015. He moved to Chelsea last summer for £8m. 20 Since the beginning of the Premier League in 1992, foreign players have been a huge part of the British game.They have transformed our football culture and given us incredible moments of guile and skill.Admittedly, not all have been great. You get the odd Ali Dia but, on the whole, foreign stars have had an incredibly positive effect on the Premier League.The current 20 clubs residing in the top-flight have all had some top players from abroad in their ranks, but where do they sit compared to others?Click the right arrow above to find out…NB. Only players who were either born and/or raised from an early age outside of the United Kingdom or Republic of Ireland were considered for inclusion. 11. Southampton – Jose Fonte (Portugal) – Across seven seasons, the Portugal star has gone from League One signing to European Championship finalist with the Saints and his national team. A rock at the back, Fonte’s rise through the ranks was impressive and now he’s a true leader on the south coast. 20 18. Sunderland – Thomas Sorensen (Denmark) – Peter Reid landed the Danish star in 1998 from Odense, after a recommendation from Peter Schmeichel. In his first season he kept a brilliant 29 clean sheets as they were promoted to the top-flight. He continued to star in the Premier League, while saving an Alan Shearer penalty further endeared him to supporters but eventually he could not save them from relegation and was sold to Aston Villa for £2m. 20 20 20 20 8. West Ham United – Paolo Di Canio (Italy) – Dimitri Payet could soon be pushing him close his he remains at the club, but for now the fiery Italian takes the spot. His four-and-a-half seasons with the club were eventful, helping them to a fifth place finish in 1999 and scoring one of the Premier League’s best ever goals in 2000. But ended with the club being relegated in 2003. 5. Manchester City – Sergio Aguero (Argentina) – Will forever be remembered for his stunning Premier League-winning strike in 2012, the Argentine’s lethal finishing has been brilliant to watch in the Premier League. If it wasn’t for niggling injuries he would surely have more than the 102 Premier League goals he has scored in 150 games, while the Blues would definitely have won more than two Premier League titles and two League Cups. 1. Arsenal – Thierry Henry (France) – An astonishing eight-year spell in north London was glittering for the player individually and the club as a whole. Two Premier League titles, three FA Cup wins, along with Golden Boots and PFA Players’ Player of the Year awards. He’s also the Gunners’ all-time top scorer. Not bad at all from the Frenchman.last_img read more

PUBLICAN FINED €750 AFTER TEACHERS REFUSE TO LEAVE HIS BAR

first_imgA Falcarragh pub-owner has been fined €750 for having a group of teachers on his premises after hours.Publican Alex Hamilton appeared before Falcarragh District Court charged with a breach of the licensing laws.The court heard that when Gardai called to The Loft Bar in Falcarragh on May 30th last year they found a group of teachers drinking after hours. Solicitor Fiona Brown told the court that the teachers had been at an end–of-term mass and had been out celebrating.Ms Brown said her client found it difficult to get the teachers off the premises and actually told Gardai he was thankful they had arrived.Judge Conal Gibbons said it was the first time he had heard of a publican blaming his clients.“Doesn’t he know that the customer is always right.“I have always found the teaching profession to be most compliant and law-abiding,” he said.Judge Gibbons said he also noticed that Mr Hamilton had a “terrible record” when it came to licensing matters.“It’s the publican’s job – that’s what’s called keeping your house in order. He is obliged to keep his house in order. There is no point in him blaming his customers,” added Judge Gibbons.He warned Ms Brown that her client could put his license in jeopardy if he came before the court again on licensing matters.He fined Hamilton €750.PUBLICAN FINED €750 AFTER TEACHERS REFUSE TO LEAVE HIS BAR was last modified: April 18th, 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:Alex HamiltonFalcarraghlicensing lawsLoft Barteacherslast_img read more
