Gov’t Drags Tax-Court Judge to Supreme Court

first_imgReports reaching the Daily Observer  have it that the Supreme Court will on Monday, April 21, hear a plea by state lawyers who allege that Judge Mozart A. Chesson, of the Tax Court, “erroneously dismissed”  its US$14,912.91 tax evasion case brought against Krystal Oceanview Hotel.Besides seeking a probe into their allegation of “erroneous dismissal” against Judge Chesson, who argued his decision was based on “legal procedural errors,” the lawyers have also sought the quashing of his (Judge Chesson) decision to recommend the matter to the Board of Tax Appeal (BOTA).But, now, the Justice-in-Chambers, Phillip Banks will step in—in response to a plea— and listen to the state lawyers’ plea.Our source hinted to our reporter, that the Justice-in-Chambers pointed out that his hearing the plea is based on the state lawyers’ insistence on the matter being determined sooner.Earlier, according to our source, Judge Chesson’s  predecessor Judge Eva Mappy Morgan on January 24, 2012  had ruled the case to trial,  after she refused state lawyers’ request to augment its records, reducing the amount in question from US$14, 912.63 to US$8,073,061.73.Judge Morgan had not stayed to decide the matter and was replaced with Judge Mozart Chesson in 2013.Details of the case said, in 2011, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) complained to the Court, alleging that Krystal Oceanview Ocean had failed to properly file and pay 7% goods and service tax, and 2%presumptive and withholding taxes to the Government of Liberia, (GOL) in the amount of US$14,912.91 for the fiscal years 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.Interestingly, the state lawyers on November 16, 2011, filed another motion before the court, contending that the amount of US$14,912.63, spelt out in its initial complaint, be changed to US$8,073,061.23.However,  lawyers representing the Hotel in response filed a motion to dismiss, requesting that the plaintiff’s amended complaint be dismissed on grounds that the plaintiff be denied the benefit of an amendment, suggesting that it would be in violation of Chapter 9, Section 9.10 Paragraph (a ) (b) and (c).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Bentol Residents Receive Free Medical Treatment

first_imgThe Albino Society of Liberia (LAS), through its “Free Medical Outreach Program,” has treated about 100 residents in Bentol City, Montserrado County, free of charge. Mrs. Patricia Logan, LAS President, told reporters recently that the program that facilitated the free medical outreach was organized by the association in collaboration with other health-related partners to help Liberians in remote or hard-to-reach communities to access free treatment. The outreach, Mrs. Logan said, targets people with minor diseases such as itchy, red eyes, women with complicated birth defects, blood pressure, and or experiencing difficulty breathing.The program was sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO), Ministry of Health, and Christian Health Association of Liberia.“We supply medications taking into consideration people with heart and stomach problems as well as other ailments such as high blood pressure and diabetes,” Mrs. Logan said.She has meanwhile called on residents of the targeted communities to take advantage of the LAS run clinic by attending the outpatient department on time to enable other persons with medical conditions to get treated.Residents greeted LAS’ kind gesture with commendations. One such person is Miatta Kekula, who was earlier treated at the clinic. She lauded Mrs. Logan and the LAS team for the initiative.

Religious practices, village economies suffering – Hindu Leader

first_imgWales closure falloutAlmost two months after the end of sugar operations at the Wales Estate, on the West Bank Demerara (WBD), members in the community and surrounding villages continue to face the far-reaching impacts from the closure. Among those affected include sugar workers, their families, and the local economies of several lower WBD communities, including Patentia, Vriesland, Wales, Good Intent, Sisters’ andHindu priest Surendra TiwariBellevue.Patentia-based Hindu priest, Surendra Tiwari, who has been in practice for the last eight years, has described the future outlook for the surrounding communities as “grim”. In a recent interview with this publication, the Pandit highlighted the numerous challenges villagers and the business community have encountered as sugar processing halted on December 31, last year. Hundreds of sugar workers were forced to seek alternative forms of employment to sustain their livelihood.Focusing on his own plight, the priest indicated that the business he operates also suffered loses as persons are spending less. Tiwari indicated that he sent out applications to two companies in an effort to garner additional employment. Up to now, the Pandit is still awaiting a response. Moreover, it was suggested that the Hindu practice is under threat as many believers have cut back on the number of “Puja” observances they would usually host.“Many Pandits around the country have said the closure of the estate and theThe Wales Sugar Estate finalised the closure of sugar operations on December 31, 2016downturn of Guyana’s economy, rituals have been cut back,” he noted.Tiwari further explained that in previous times, families would invite a large contingent of persons, but this has changed as hosts of the religious functions have curbed their numbers, which reduces the amount of opportunities for community folk to gather. It was also explained that while Pandits don’t officially charge for performing religious work, residents have reduced the amount of money they give to the priests and in some cases, villagers cannot afford to offer financial incentives.“Some persons give and some don’t give because they don’t have jobs and don’t have a steady income coming in and hence the reason why they can’t give donations to the temple or they can’t pay the Pandit to perform certain rituals functions,” he explained.ImpactTiwari posited that the reduction in religious observances can have a psychological impact on the well-being of residents.“It would have a mental toll on them because many Hindus normally perform yearly and functions at Temples… knowing that you’re a Hindu and can’t perform those functions because of lack of jobs and income, it would cause a mental breakdown,” reasoned the religious leader.Tiwari also claimed that the closure is leading to a large number persons, especially of Indian descent, to fast-track migration which, according to him, is threatening the continuation of not only the Hindu religion, but that of Islam as well. The leader also noted that income considerations are propelling the residents to leave.“Persons who have money are migrating to the islands, the US and Canada in search of greener pastures and jobs, and this are happen primarily to Indo-Guyanese because the majority of them held jobs at the Wales Estate,” Tiwari stressed.He even highlighted some of the social impacts he has seen over the past several months where community practices, such as barbecues and other shows are no longer being held. He noted too that villagers have cut back on luxuries due to the lack of jobs. “Person cannot afford the fancy places to eat like Royal Castle, DQ, and Chicken and Burger Delight – these are facts,” Tiwari stated. The closure of the estate affected hundreds of workers and farmers directly and thousands of persons in the Wales and surrounding communities indirectly. At this point, many Wales workers claim that they are still awaiting severance payment and have cited that they have largely been out of work since late December 2016. They noted that their ability to send children to school is being affected.Earlier this week, workers reminded that President David Granger and Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo had committed their support to the sugar industry in the run-up to the 2015 General and Regional Elections. On this premises, they called for an intervention of the President and his Cabinet members to address their many concerns. The decision to cease sugar operations was confirmed by Government in January 2016 after Guyana Times broke the news of closure earlier that month.last_img read more

2 killed, 1 critical in Berbice fiery crash

first_imgA teenager is now battling for his life, while his body remains covered in burns and two of his close friends have been burnt beyond recognition, after the car in which they were travelling veered off the road and crashed into a coconut tree before bursting into flames on the Fort Wellington public road.The damaged carDead are 22-year-old Dhaniram Dunraj, a former rice farmer of Plantation Chester, West Coast Berbice, and his friend Kevin Atherly-Ward, 23, of Britannia WCB. Their friend, 17-year-old Parmanand Arjune, received burns about his body, among other injuries.According to reports, Dunraj was driving motor car PVV 7782 at a fast rate while proceeding west along the southern carriageway of the Fort Wellington Public Road before losing control of the vehicle. He attempted to regain control, but the vehicle veered off the road and crashed into a coconut tree, then immediately burst into flames. This accident occurred at some time around 21:00h on Wednesday.Arjune was saved from the inferno only because he was flung from the vehicle as it was coming to a stop.It is reported that the group of friends were returning home from Bath Settlement after a few games of pools when the accident occurred. The car had belonged to Dunraj’s sister.The surviving teen’s father, Ramdass Arjune, said he was summoned to the Fort Wellington Hospital, where he met his injured son.“He told me that like the guy couldn’t control the car, and when they running in to lash the tree, he pelt out and the car catch fire right away. He was outside of the car, and with the tree he start catching (afire) too,” he related.“So all his clothes burn up, and somebody tell him to move away from the car, because with the heat, they can’t go so close. So he drag till he reach near the trench, and they stretch and pull him and then take him to the hospital,” the elder Arjune revealed.He said his injured son received burns to his face, stomach, back and both hands.Meanwhile, Dunraj’s father expressed disbelief that his son is gone.“When I went to the scene, I see the car base on the coconut tree already burnt, and when I look inside, I see my son and another boy burn to death,” he said in tears.The grieving father noted that he was forced to take a seat on the ground to console himself. He added that his son was in a crouched position to the front passenger’s side of the car, while Atherly-Ward was also crouched behind where the burnt back seat was.Atherly-Ward and Arjune were reportedly employees of the now dead driver, since they would cultivate rice for him.According to Bibi Rosheeda, her son, Atherly-Ward, had been a kind and loving person who was always willing. She said the family received the gut-wrenching call at some time around 23:00h.The Police are investigating the incident, and a post mortem examination is expected to be conducted on the duo.

Birthday boy Mbappe stars as PSG down Caen

first_img0Shares0000Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian MBappe (bottom) celebrates with teammate Edinson Cavani after scoring during their match against Caen in Paris on December 20, 2017 © AFP / FRANCK FIFEPARIS, France, Dec 21 – Kylian Mbappe celebrated his 19th birthday on Wednesday with a goal and an assist as Paris Saint-Germain cruised to a 3-1 victory over Caen in Ligue 1.The French teenager has enjoyed a stratospheric rise in 2017 and rounded out a memorable year in style by setting up Edinson Cavani to fire PSG ahead on 21 minutes, before adding a goal of his own on the hour. Spanish left-back Yuri Berchiche netted his first goal for the club since arriving from Real Sociedad as PSG strolled to a 10th straight home league win despite conceding a late Ivan Santini penalty.Unai Emery’s team head into the winter break nine points clear of defending champions Monaco and Lyon, with both of those sides claiming 2-1 wins over Rennes and Toulouse respectively.“It’s a good win to finish with 50 points, but the goal we conceded is something we want to work on after the holidays,” Emery said.“I think the team has had a very good first half of the season,” he added. “We’ve accomplished our goals of being first in our Champions League group and being top of the league with a sizeable cushion.”Marseille responded to losing their 12-match unbeaten run at the weekend by coming from a goal behind to defeat Troyes 3-1 at the Velodrome to stay within three points of the Champions League spots.PSG captain Thiago Silva returned from injury at the Parc des Princes to solidify a defence without the suspended Dani Alves and Presnel Kimpembe, while Neymar shrugged off a bout of illness that forced him to miss training on Tuesday.Mbappe, sporting dyed white hair for his birthday, was instrumental as PSG surged in front midway through the first half, bursting down the right wing before crossing for Cavani to flick majestically beyond Remy Vercoutre.– Ibra record in sight –It was the Uruguayan’s league-leading 19th goal of the season and drew him to within one of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s club record of 156 — achieved in just four prolific seasons in the French capital.Giovani Lo Celso, filling in for the banned Marco Verratti in central midfield, created the hosts’ second goal on 57 minutes, getting to the byline and delivering a cross for Mbappe to confidently sweep home.Neymar went close to adding a third when he broke clear of the Caen defence, but the Brazilian was denied by a terrific low stop from Vercoutre as the veteran goalkeeper tipped the ball onto the post.Berchiche put the game beyond reach on 81 minutes after collecting a pass from Neymar and hammering low into the far corner, although Croatia striker Santini pulled a goal back from the spot late on after Silva was penalised for a handball.Radamel Falcao struck for the 15th time this campaign as Monaco won at home to Rennes thanks to an 81st-minute goal from Keita Balde after Wahbi Khazri had levelled for the visitors.Nabil Fekir converted a first-half penalty and former Manchester United full-back Rafael scored in stoppage time as Lyon beat Toulouse despite a last-gasp spot-kick from Max-Alain Gradel.“PSG are setting a fairly high pace. For us the main goal is to finish on the podium and to carry on in the second half of the season like we finished the first,” Lyon captain Fekir said.Bryan Pele put Troyes ahead at Marseille, but Rudi Garcia’s men roared back with goals from Dimitri Payet, Luiz Gustavo and Valere Germain, while Emiliano Sala grabbed a 92nd-minute winner for Nantes in a 1-0 victory at Amiens.Nice were held to a 1-1 draw at Lille in the absence of suspended Italian striker Mario Balotelli, the result enough to move the struggling hosts out of the bottom two.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Cuban immigrant brought dedication to youths

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – Caught in two wars in his youth, then decades later escaping communist Cuba with his young family, Tomas Girgado never had a real childhood. He made up for that in his adopted country, settling in Glendale and then Santa Clarita, where he coached and umpired youth baseball, dedicated to helping youngsters learn and have fun with the sport he loved. Girgado died last week at 78 after a long battle with cancer and was buried Friday. His legacy lies on the youth fields of the William S. Hart PONY Baseball and Softball Complex in Valencia where, in his retirement, he umpired for 20 years. “When he did his last game last spring, he was the oldest umpire at Hart. Everyone loved him,” son Tomas Girgado Jr. said Sunday. “His whole life, he spent his time with young people. My dad never had a childhood.” Girgado Sr. grew up in Spain in civil war, which claimed his own father and his brother. The remnants of the family went to France and when the Nazis invaded, “he got on a ship to the new world,” his son said. He was just 13. “He valued kids,” Girgado said. “He wanted kids to be kids for as long as they could, to keep their innocence. That was his No. 1 priority.” The PONY League, which boasts some 3,500 young players, plans some sort of tribute in the name of its favorite umpire. “Tomas was the epitome of what youth baseball should be,” said John Tenorio, a spokesman for the league. The umpire was known for stopping a game to show a pitcher the proper form or a hitter how to properly hold his bat. Girgado, who lived in the Dominican Republic before settling in Cuba, played semi-professional baseball there and brought his love of the game to the United States in 1968 when he and his wife Pilar escaped the communist government with their young sons. A tailor by trade, he found little demand for his profession in the U.S. He worked for Baxter Corp. and coached his sons in baseball. After he retired, he took his position behind the plate. “As an umpire he had a slow fuse,” his son said. “He would take any kind of punishment from parents and kids, but one thing he would never take was for manager or coaches to treat the kids badly. He would take the man aside and say, “He’s only 11 years old.” Girgado was predeceased by his wife and survived by sons Tomas (Yamile) and Richard (Elena) and grandchildren Jennifer, Camilo and Diego Girgado.
