Konneh’s Plea for Continuance Granted

first_imgAfter over four hours of closed-door activities by Senators that lasted up to 1:00 p.m., and followed by almost two hours of proceedings, the Senate yesterday granted an appeal for continuance to Minister of Finance and Development Planning, Amara Konneh, to enable him to have proper representation by his lawyer who, he told the lawmakers, was out of the country.Following an hour of heated arguments over the legality of Konneh’s plea, majority of the Senators agreed that in order for the witness (Konneh) to have his day before plenary with proper representation, it was legally imperative that sufficient time was given him to be adequately prepared through his lawyer for his reappearance.In his plea for continuance, Konneh stated thus: “Honorable Senators, I will like to respectfully inform the Senate that my choice of counsel is not in town, and I will prefer to appeal that you grant me continuance in this matter if at all my presence is needed today, thank you.”Asserting that every citizen of the country is entitled to legal counsel, Maryland County Senator J. Gbleh-Bo Brown, who proffered the motion for continuance, declared: “I will move that my fellow colleagues [consent] that the request by the Minister be granted, and that this Senate reconvene next Tuesday for the reappearance of the Minister along with his lawyer. And in the event he appears here without his lawyer, this body should take recourse to provide him the legal representation as required by the law.”Several Senators, as expected, among them the Chairman of Senate Committee on Judiciary, Varney G. Sherman, all requested an extended time of at least two weeks be granted to the witness for his lawyer to go through whatever paperwork he may need to do.In the vote that followed, however, 15 Senators agreed on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 for Minister Konneh and his lawyer to appear. There were five against, and two abstained.Konneh is facing contempt hearings before the Senate after that body took offense to the language of the content in a communication authored by Deputy Minister for Fiscal Affairs of Finance and Development Planning Ministry, Dr. James F. Kollie.Minister Konneh, who appeared before that body last Tuesday, agreed to take responsibility for the language of the letter, but refused to apologize for what the lawmakers described as “Constitutional Violation” in the Minister’s attempt to usurp their Legislative function.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man United, Arsenal and other stars who need January moves to boost England chances

first_img 1. Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal) – click the yellow arrow above, right, to see other England players who may need to move to make the Euro 2016 squad – Which England players need to move in order to enhance their chances of making manager Roy Hodgson’s Euro 2016 squad? Left-back is a slot where there is relative depth and, unfortunately for Kieran Gibbs, Nacho Monreal is also in excellent form for Arsenal. It’s a combination that leaves his hopes of making Hodgson’s 23-man squad dwindling with just over four months until the manager makes his big anouncement. If Luke Shaw is fit, Gibbs is arguably fourth choice behind the Manchester United man, Leighton Baines and Danny Rose, with Aaron Cresswell also playing regularly for West Ham. A January move could change that. 5 The January transfer window provides an opportunity for some players to revive their careers, but this season is particularly special.With the season culminating with the international feast that is Euro 2016, those on the periphery of the England squad may start weighing up their options in a bid to impress national manager Roy Hodgson.It’s unclear if Hodgson already has a rough idea of who he will be taking to France, but he would be naïve not to stay open minded with so much still to play for between now and the end of the season.So, after Jonjo Shelvey and Charlie Austin completed moves in recent days, who needs to follow suit in the next two weeks to enhance their chances of booking their seat on the Eurostar?talkSPORT has shortlisted five who should consider transfers – click the yellow arrow above, right, to see who made it… 5. Ashley Young (Manchester United) – In contrast with Shawcross, Young plays regularly – albeit out of position – for an established and elite Premier League side yet hasn’t featured for England since 2013. He’s one of Louis van Gaal’s most consistent performers and a direct and effective winger, but Hodgson appears to regard his international career as finished. Could a change of scenery show ambition and alter the England manager’s perspective? 5 5 5 4. Ryan Shawcross (Stoke) – Perennially overlooked, but will Shawcross’s recent record and impact at Stoke finally get him the recognition he deserves? Since he returned from injury in November, the Potters have kept seven clean sheets in 12 Premier League games to help propel them among the Premier League top four contenders. His no-nonsense style and leadership qualities would be a huge asset for England, but does he need to move to a ‘bigger’ and perhaps ‘more desirable’ club than Stoke to clinch his place? 3. Andros Towsnend (Tottenham) – Similarly to Berahino, Townsend’s pseudo-exile after an alleged bust up with a member of the Tottenham coaching staff has seen his chances of making Hodgson’s squad fade drastically. Townsend, however, seems to save his best performances for the international stage and scored in both World Cup and European Championship qualifying campaigns. Hodgson likes him, so a loan move could certainly elevate him back into recognition. 2. Saido Berahino (West Brom) – Berahino has earned just a solitary England call up in his career so far, which came in 2014 but didn’t feature against either Slovenia or Scotland on that occasion. West Brom manager Tony Pulis hasn’t been impressed by his attitude after his move to Tottenham fell through in the summer and has duly restricted his game time. A host of clubs, including Newcastle, Chelsea and Spurs, are considering an approach before the end of the window, and it could provide the platform for him to propel himself into international reckoning again. 5last_img read more


first_imgALL eyes might be on Galway this week, but Donegal jockey Martin Harley has been the toast of the biggest meet in England this week – Glorious Goodwood.He helped Bungleinthejungle, a 14-1 shot, produce a storming late rally to nail 2-1 favourite Morawij right on the line.His chances appeared bleak after Morawij kicked three-quarters of a length clear inside the final furlong, but the Mick Channon-trained colt refused to be denied and Harley battled back in the most valiant fashion to get the verdict by a head. It was a third Molecomb success for Channon, and a long overdue Group success in Britain for part-owner Christopher Wright, who used to regularly dine at racing’s top table.“That’s my first Group winner in England for an awful long time,” he said. “I’m thrilled.”Martin Harley, who is enjoying a magnificent season as stable jockey to Channon, said: “They went very fast early on, but Bungle Inthejungle sees out five furlongs very well. He’s tough, with a big heart, and battled on really well.“This year is going great, and big thanks to the boss, who hassupported me with plenty of rides.” From what we hear, there’s a fair few punters around Letterkenny celebrating – having put a few quid on the 14-1 shot.  GLORIOUS GOODWOOD FOR DONEGAL JOCKEY was last modified: August 1st, 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:GLORIOUS GOODWOOD FOR DONEGAL JOCKEYlast_img read more

‘Control yourself’: Pat the Cope suspends Dáil after row erupts

first_imgLeas Ceann Comhairle Pat the Cope Gallagher was forced to intervene after a row erupted in the Dáil earlier today.The Donegal TD was forced to suspend the Dáil for five minutes as tempers flared this afternoon. The argument began when Deputy Marc MacSharry felt that some TDs weren’t abiding by the rules of the new speaker queueing system for addressing the Taoiseach. Upon entry, speakers are allocated a number. The Sligo-Leitrim TD raised his number (11), saying that it is his turn to speak, however an argument quickly ensued between himself and the Healy Rae brothers.Gallagher urged MacSharry to “control himself” as the rowing match erupted between the three TDs.“I will take action if necessary… you’re all circumventing the regulations,” Gallagher scolded.Gallagher then said he will suspend the house, to which MacSharry hit back “suspend it if you like.” “You will not speak to chair like that,” Gallagher said before suspending the house.After a five minute break the Dáil resumed.Gallagher said that the new queueing system is being piloted and will be reviewed after Easter. He added that the suspension of the Dáil “was nothing to do with the cards… [and it] wasn’t a question of me showing favouritism to anybody.”‘Control yourself’: Pat the Cope suspends Dáil after row erupts was last modified: February 9th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:dailmarc mac sharryPat the CoperowTDlast_img read more

Kutch sex racket: Gujarat government agrees to judicial probe

first_imgRelenting on the Opposition’s demand, the Gujarat government on Wednesday agreed to a judicial probe into the Kutch sex racket and gang rape case in which a few local BJP leaders are allegedly involved. Chief Minister Vijay Rupani made the announcement in the Assembly. “The government is ready for a judicial probe in the matter. We are committed to ensure that all guilty will be punished and no one will be spared,” Mr. Rupani said. The government’s announcement came after the opposition Congress aggressively pushed their demand, forcing frequent adjournments of the Assembly proceedings on Monday and Tuesday. Even ahead of the presentation of annual budget on Tuesday, the House was adjourned as the Congress members demanded probe during the question hour. Earlier, a State Congress delegation had called on Gujarat Governor O.P. Kohli seeking his intervention on the matter.last_img read more

Jos Buttler backs England to stay aggressive

first_imgEngland’s batsmen should continue to be aggressive and play even more shots, wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has said even as the team’s top-order crumbled against Sri Lanka in the tied first one-day international on Tuesday.Chasing a target of 287, England were reduced to 30 for four and then 82 for six before Buttler made 93 and Chris Woakes 95 not out to give the hosts a chance of winning at Trent Bridge.Liam Plunkett then smashed the last ball of the match for six to earn his team a dramatic tie against the touring side.”If anything we should come out and play even more shots,” Buttler was quoted as saying by the British media. “That’s the way we want to play our cricket. We want to put teams under pressure and there’s no reason to change.”This style of cricket has been good fun to play in and has given us some success.”England have displayed freedom and exuberance in their approach to the limited-overs formats since their humiliating group stage exit at last year’s 50-over World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.Joe Root has been talismanic with the bat for them but the right-hander has suffered a dip in form, scoring 89 in his last five international innings, 80 of which came in one knock.Buttler feared it might have been caused by the heavy workload on Root’s shoulders.”He’s one of the best in the world and it’s probably just because of the high standards he’s set… I’m sure he’ll bounce back,” Buttler said.advertisement”He plays all forms of the game and I think that’s something England management always have to be careful with… He’s a very important player and if he needs a rest he’ll say he needs a rest and that will happen.”last_img read more
