Defective cameras increase risks of jailbreak – prison officer

first_imgAs the inquiry into the riots at the Camp Street Prison continues, Commissioners heard on Tuesday thatPrison Officer Dekanna Benjamin taking the standdefective surveillance cameras at the penitentiary increase the risk of a jailbreak. Prison Officer Dekanna Benjamin in her testimony explained that surveillance equipment has been in a non-operational state for “three or four months”. She conceded that the non-functioning equipment did impact upon her work to some extent. The officer noted that she was however able to carry out her job “effectively”.Benjamin, who has been stationed in the Operations Room for over two years, told Commissioners of the sections which are currently without coverage, but the media was advised that this information must not be made public for security reasons. Apart from being responsible for the video surveillance, it was explained that the Operations Room has oversight for telephone switchboards and arms and ammunition.The officer who was stationed from the evening of March 2 into the morning of March 3 also told Commissioners of the prevailing challenges which may hinder the overall department. Benjamin testified that the Operations Room department is understaffed and would sometimes have only two officers monitoring all of the prison activities. Despite these many challenges, Officer Benjamin pledged that she will remain in the prison service.The Commissioner of Inquiry (CoI) also heard that there are no smoke detectors at the penitentiary. The Commission was previously told of contraband items like matches and lighters being in possession of the inmates.Fellow Prison Officer Esther Charles, who joined the prison service in June 1998, also took the stand at Tuesday’s CoI. She testified that Deputy Director of Prisons Gladwin Samuels and Director Carl Graham arrived at 10:55h and 08:05h respectively, but was unsure whether or not they had ever left the facilities.Charles also related that on March 3, she was the first officer to inform her colleagues of the fire which she testified started around 11:00h.The prison officer who has functioned in the Operations Room for some 10 years also explained that she had called the fire service and noted that she would also keep personal notes of times when events occur to maintain accuracy.When the officer referenced her notes from the day of the March 3 fire, it was revealed that before other joint services members were called, the fire service was called at 11:04h. This account was in contrast to that included in the evidence provided by the Guyana Fire Service on April 13 which stated that the report of fire report at the prisons on March 3 was received at 11:18h.At that time, in cross-examination, Attorney Glen Hanoman had postulated that a staff member attached to the Fire Service assisted in “drafting up the log book” for the purpose of bringing it to the Commission and noted that another log book exists for March 2 and March 3. Hanoman had raised suspicion since the Georgetown Fire Station’s log book started at the time of the riots.After a period of rioting, 17 inmates at the Camp Street facilities lost their lives. The hearings will resume this morning.last_img read more

PYJ, Weah Seeking The ‘Face of God’ in Nigeria

first_imgSen. Prince Y. Johnson (center) is a disciple of Pastor T. B. Joshua (right). Seated is Sen. Weah (Photo: T.B. Joshua’s official Facebook Page)PYJ, Weah seal deal for run-off presidential bid?The relationship between the two men has not been exactly rosy in the recent past, but as images of Senator Prince Y. Johnson, leader of the Movement for Democracy and Reconstruction (MDR) and Senator George M. Weah of the Coalition for Democratic Change at church together in Nigeria with Pastor T. B. Joshua went viral on Sunday afternoon, the debate as to whether or not Weah had won Johnson’s endorsement reached a new level.From the photos, which first appeared on T. B. Joshua’s Facebook page, it appears to be a rather positive vibe between the two Liberian senators, who also happen to the two people representing Africa’s oldest republic at the ECOWAS Parliament. At the ECOWAS parliament, Weah is head of the Liberian delegation. But nearly every trip the two have made to Nigeria for the regional parliamentary meetings, there are usually negative sparks, in a most recent case, with Weah and delegation reportedly abandoning Sen. Johnson at the airport in Lagos due to certain delays.The heat between the two Liberian senators turned in a new dimension when, just a few weeks ago, both were vying for the nation’s highest seat. At one point, as part of a larger collaborative — the Ganta Declaration, they called it — PYJ and Weah, along with all the other opposition party leaders, pledged a joint effort to unseat the ruling Unity Party.In spite of what transpired in Ganta with fellow opposition colleagues, there were frequent verbal attacks from PYJ toward Weah, some for cause and others, calculated calls for caution toward those in support of Weah. One of his latest remarks against Weah was that the election of “Weah as President of Liberia, could lead to war.”Has anything changed?With PYJ currently out of the presidential race but still in the game because of his tremendous influence in the vote-rich Nimba County, he is being wooed by his favorite fight-mate, George Weah, to deliver an endorsement that could sway the county’s electorate in Weah’s favor.Weah is due to face-off with UP candidate Joseph N. Boakai in the run-off election scheduled for November 7. Of the 20 presidential candidates in the first round, the two emerged with the most votes, but significantly shy of the coveted 50% plus one vote as required by the Constitution; hence the run-off. And Senator Johnson is basking in the spotlight as potential king maker between the two finalists.But for such a monumental move, PYJ is seeking guidance from his spiritual Father”, Pastor Joshua, the man who converted him to Christianity following his exit from the Liberian civil war.So it was, both Weah and Johnson surfaced in Lagos, Nigeria together on Sunday, October 22, attending Pastor T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), where the pastor offered prayers for Johnson and Weah.According to Ihechukwu Njoku, a freelance Nigerian journalist, Weah had gone to SCOAN to “seek God’s face” for Liberia. With power so close yet so far away, Weah apparently has not forgotten the near misses of his first and second attempts at the presidency (2005 and 2011) and has realized that seeking God, even if He is in Lagos, Nigeria, is a far better venture than relying solely on the promises of his hundreds of thousands of constituents who showed their willingness to give him their votes during the first round.Pastor T. B. Joshua, the Nigerian televangelist and philanthropist, is noted for receiving African politicians, among them Tanzania’s President John Magufuli, the late President of Ghana John Atta Mills, Zimbabwean Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai and Julius Malema of South Africa.He reportedly told the huge gathering at the Church, where Weah and Johnson were in attendance yesterday: “My brother (Weah) is here today because he loves his country and wants God’s choice for his country.”He added, “He is not here to impose himself. What does God say about his country, Liberia? What is God’s opinion? That is why he is here.”Pastor Joshua continued: “We are not herbalists or witch-doctors; we are people of God. God’s choice is our choice. We cannot pray against God’s will.” Though we are yet to know Joshua’s predictions of the Liberian political scenarios since 2005, since with the overwhelming impressive performance of Senator Weah and the October 10 elections, it possible to conclude that no one needs a prophet or soothsayer to determine where victory may likely fall. The report from Nigeria said Weah nodded firmly in agreement at Pastor Joshua’s statement.CDC standard bearer George Weah (left) greets Pastor T. B. Joshua in Nigeria (Photo: T.B. Joshua’s official Facebook Page)The Nigerian megastar man of God said, “Without God’s corresponding power, we cannot pray to Him. For every step we take – every movement and action – intimation comes first.“God’s opinion is what we should seek in our country – simple! God is the answer, the final.“You cannot twist or bribe God; He is not a man… The best place to go is to meet people God has given the grace to be a communicator between visible and invisible,” he said, making ever effort to avoid declaring prophecy in favor of either Weah or Boakai.It was the same Pastor Joshua who, during the United States Presidential elections, said the following: “Ten days ago, I saw the new President of America with a narrow win. The new President will be facing several challenges over many issues, including: passing bills, attempts to possibly pass a vote of no confidence on the new President. The boat of the new President will be rocked. By the way, in order not to keep you in suspense, what I frankly saw is a woman.”That prophesy appeared untrue, because he “frankly saw… a woman” as president of the United States, but it turned out to be a man, Donald Trump. And while that in itself creates a perception of ‘failure’ about the controversial prophet, many millions place their trust him.“It is interesting that some well-known pastors and prophets only tend to shift to what many partisans of the CDC are are saying to be their expectation,” said a Unity Party partisan, who was contacted for the article.Though Pastor Joshua has not predicted the result of the run-off elections as he did with the American elections, the overwhelming and impressive lead by Weah and the chance of the Ganta coalition’s support gives the situation an interesting slant.Yet, even PYJ has not come out to publicly announce which way he would lean.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Blay, is a two-time recipient of the school’s scholarship. Blay currently serves as vice president for administration at the Liberia Baptist Theological Seminary, located along the ELWA/RIA Highway, Paynesville.“Rev. Blay received his Bachelor of Arts (with honors) from Mercer University in the U.S., and in 2017, he completed his Master of Divinity at Mercer University’s McAfee School of Theology.Ricks Institute, located in Virginia, Montserrado County, is a grade school from Kindergarten to 12th grade.

Jay Hill’s reaction to cabinet shuffle

first_imgLocal MP Jay Hill has weighed in on today’s federal cabinet shuffle, and his promotion to Government House Leader. Hill says the portfolio change didn’t didn’t come as a complete surprise. [asset|aid=532|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=afeb7e996449c1015c01df057dce85f1-Jay-I.Knew_1_Pub.mp3] The leader of the government in the house of commons is an important position, as he is largely responsible for devising strategies for winning key common’s votes in a minority government. But, Hill says he’s up to the challenge. [asset|aid=533|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=afeb7e996449c1015c01df057dce85f1-Jay-I’m.Ready_1_Pub.mp3] Hill says the priority for his government heading into the next session of parliament, which will begin on November 18th, will clearly be the economy. Hill also says his being the house leader will be beneficial for this riding, as it gives him daily access to the Prime Minister, and the other cabinet ministers. But, he says priorities for this riding parallel those in other ridings, as the global economic crisis is doing particular damage to the Forestry and Agricultural sectors, just as all levels of government look to tighten their belts.- Advertisement –last_img read more

New road safety initiative to give students realistic experience of road traffic collisions

first_imgA new safety initiative to hammer home the message of the dangers on our roads, providing students with realistic experiences of a serious road traffic collision is now available to Secondary schools, Youthreach Centres and clubs in Donegal.Your Life – Your Choice, promoted by Donegal County Council and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group, is a road safety virtual reality (VR) programme, aimed at young drivers and passengers in the 16-25 age group who are among the most vulnerable road users16.The VR units simulate a serious road traffic collision, with the viewer participating in the passenger seat of a VR car. Viewers witness many of the dangerous behaviours and factors associated with young drivers involved in serious collisions, including mobile phone use, speed, stopping distance, distraction, and rural roads.They also witness, from the passenger seat, the immediate aftermath of a serious collision, when the emergency services arrive at the scene of the collision.Geoffrey Browne, Donegal ETB Chairperson said: “This technology allows every user wearing a headset to experience the stark reality of being trapped in a vehicle and to observe up close the work of the emergency services at the scene of a road traffic collision.We are reminding young people that they have a choice as to what kind of road user they and their passengers want to be.  Those decisions are vital for their safety and the safety of other road users. Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer said: “Sadly 16 to 24-year olds, and in particular young men, continue to be over-represented in the statistics for those killed or seriously injured on our roads.  This road safety initiative will encourage young people, to behave more responsibly behind the wheel.“This modern invention delivers a very clear message effectively and one that remains with the user long after watching the video clip. It is hoped that all students from transition year onwards will eventually be given a chance to try the device.”Martin Gormley, Director of Schools, Donegal ETB said “This programme will help to engage students in considering the role that they have in preventing deaths and serious injuries on the roads.“It is important to raise awareness of road safety issues and we hope that this programme will encourage our young motorists to think about their behaviour and promote safer driving practices.”If you are interested in the programme please contact bodonnel@donegalcoco.ie New road safety initiative to give students realistic experience of road traffic collisions was last modified: November 14th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)last_img read more
