2 Confess to JFK Hospital L$15.7M Robbery

first_imgTwo of the eight persons on trial for their alleged involvement in a criminal scheme that robbed the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFKMC) of L$15,774,742 and US$5,000 yesterday confessed to committing the crimes at the Temple of Justice.The confession of defendants James Ricks, former clearing officer of the First International Bank (FIB), and Thomas Oliver Mezzeh came immediately when they and their colleagues were arraigned before Criminal Court C to establish whether or not they were guilty of the commission of the multiple crimes placed in their indictments.The two, together with Patrick Konuwah and Rabeah Arnaus, former accounts officer and IT and database supervisor of the hospital, respectively; Jerry D. Morlu, caretaker at the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications and Flahn F. Borbor, former production manager of the Women Voices Newspaper, as well as Thomas G. Telewoyan and Benjamin W. Dargbe were charged with the crimes of economic sabotage, theft of property, money laundering, criminal conspiracy and facilitation. They had earlier denied any knowledge of the crimes until their two colleagues confessed yesterday in court.The pair’s confession was made to the court through their respective lawyers.For Mezzeh’s lawyer, Cllr. Memee S. Gongba, making his client’s confession, said: “Defendant Mezzeh conferred judgment, and as such, he filed a motion for a plea bargain.”Cllr. Gongba quoted Mezzeh as saying, “This is purely intended to cut this mitigation short of not wasting the court’s time,” adding, “it is the humble prayer of codefendant Mezzeh that this request will be granted unto him as a matter of law.”As for Ricks’ lawyer, Attorney Jallah G. Zumon, reading his client’s confession he told the court that: “Defendant Ricks requests the court to enter into a plea bargaining with Liberia, which bargaining will be presented to this court for it perusal and if need be for it consideration.”After their respective confessions yesterday, the lead prosecutor and County Attorney for Montserrado County, Cllr. Daku Mulbah, in separate responses, interposed no objection to the codefendants’ requests for plea bargains.But while responding to Mezzeh’s request, Cllr. Mulbah clarified that the exercise was the constitutional and statutory right of the codefendant.In Ricks’ case, Cllr. Mulbah said, “Codefendant Ricks’ submission to enter into a plea bargaining agreement suggests that said codefendant confesses judgment to the crimes of which he is charged and indicted.” Immediately after the prosecutor accepted the pair’s requests, Judge Paye granted the request.A plea bargaining is a process whereby a criminal defendant and prosecutor reach a mutually satisfactory disposition of a criminal case, subject to the court’s approval.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guyanese entrepreneur to meet President Obama in Peru

first_imgWhen Abigale Loncke applied for the 2016 Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative (YLAI) in the United States, she never expected that she would be competing against 250 young entrepreneurs for the best business pitch in Washington, DC neither did she plan on travelling to Peru to meet US PresidentAbigale LonckeBarack Obama for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit.Loncke is the founder of Community Health Care, an agency which offers home care service for elderly persons, the sick, disabled, and children. The agency also gives back to the society by providing training for women, who are in need of employment and a second chance at life. Locke’s team would integrate these women into society, teach them life skills and offer them jobs within the company.She was one of the four Guyanese selected to represent the nation at the YLAI.  The initiative brought together 250 young leaders from Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States for an exchange programme that involves internship and skills-building workshops. The YLAI is the brainchild of President Obama, who committed to empowering young people around the world by ensuring that they have the network and skills to fight global challenges.The programme began on October 5 in Texas and ended with a summit in Washington, DC in early November. Over the six weeks, participants exchanged experiences in start-ups, small businesses, Non-Governmental Organisations, and similar entities in cities throughout the United States and in partnership with community groups and American universities.The 250 participants further developed their business plans through an entrepreneurship curriculum and workshops. They were trained and mentored by the Chambers of Business Commerce in the US and by influential business persons.After a successful business pitch in Alabama, Loncke was selected to attend the APEC Summit to meet the President, making her the first young entrepreneur to win the first half of the YLAI in the US. She stated that although, she did not win the best business pitch prize in Washington, DC, the experience was enough to last a lifetime.“I am glad that I was representing Guyana. I carried my flag with me all the way…and even though I didn’t win the Washington prize, I’m grateful for the experience and the knowledge I have gained from some of the best entrepreneurs in the world,” she told Guyana Times in a recent interview.Loncke said she was amazed that she was selected with a few of the other finalists to attend the summit in Peru with Obama. “I never expected this. We were told because of his schedule and the US elections, he was unable to meet with the YLAI entrepreneurs and so a few were selected to meet with him in Peru,” she added.She will leave Guyana on Wednesday for Peru for the summit and will meet with Obama on Saturday at a town hall meeting. The APEC summit will commence on November 17 and end November 19.last_img read more

Kings win to start road trip

first_imgFlorida, which entered the game 6-1-1 in its previous eighthome games, was shut out for the seventh time this season. The Kings began a five-game trip by improving to 7-18 on the road. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Burke, who turned 40 on Jan.29, was claimed off waivers from Tampa Bay on Jan. 18. It was his first shutout since April8, versus Pittsburgh. “When the game’s kind of out of reach, and you get down to the last four or five minutes, you think about the shutout,” Burke said. “It’s such a good thing for the team. If you win 7-1, 7-2, it’s a great victory. But when you don’t give up anything, everybody feels a part of that.” The Kings scored six goals on 18 shots through two periods. Panthers goalie Ed Belfour was replaced by Alexander Auld with Florida trailing 3-0 and 5:59 left in the first period. Frolov gave an assist to Burke for helping the Kings’ offensive attack. “He has made so many great saves the last two games, it’s much easier to play when you’re not afraid what’s going on (behind you),” Frolov said. SUNRISE, Fla. – The unexpected happened when the NHL’s worst road team visited one of the league’s best home teams. Sean Burke made 40 saves for his 38th career shutout, and Alexander Frolov and Michael Cammalleri each scored twice to help the Kings beat the Florida Panthers 7-0 on Saturday night. center_img Konstantin Pushkarev, Dustin Brown and Jamie Lundmark also scored for Los Angeles, which had dropped seven of its previous eight road games. Frolov, Cammalleri, Sean Avery and Derek Armstrong each had two assists. “We haven’t had a lot of problems scoring goals this year – it’s been keeping them out that’s been the biggest problem,” Kings coach Marc Crawford said. “Sean’s come in and taken that burden away from us, and it has given us a better feel for our team.” last_img read more

De Gea-inspired Spain deny Ukraine

first_imgSlovakia’s 4-2 win over Luxembourg ensured they qualify for next year’s finals in France in second place.Ukraine finished third and will now face a two-legged playoff in November to try and make it through.“I always try to do my best and today I played well, but the most important thing was to win,” De Gea told Television Espanola.De Gea has had to wait for his opportunities in the national team despite stunning performances for Manchester United in the past two seasons, but his latest display will only add to the call for Vicente del Bosque to start him ahead of captain Iker Casillas at the finals next June.“I have to compete as best I can. Today I had some luck, but I need to continue playing like this,” added De Gea.Del Bosque made 10 changes to the side that sealed their place in France with a 4-0 win over Luxembourg on Friday with only Fabregas keeping his place.Ukraine had plenty of opportunities to take advantage of an inexperienced Spanish back four that had just 11 caps between them prior to kick-off, but a combination of some poor finishing and De Gea kept the hosts at bay.De Gea was called into action for the first time as he turned Kravets’s shot from a narrow angle behind before somehow turning Rotan’s volley over the bar with an outstretched leg on 15 minutes.However, the hosts were caught out by a wonderful move from the visitors five minutes later to open the scoring as Nolito and Thiago Alcantara exchanged passes and the latter marked his first international appearance for 19 months with a lovey cross for Gaspar to head home.Del Bosque’s men had a great chance to double their lead moments later when Fabregas was brought down by Oleksandr Kucher inside the area.However, Spain’s captain for the evening couldn’t convert from the spot as Andrey Pyatov flew to his left to pull of a fine save.De Gea denied Kravets twice more before the break and Denys Garmash headed over from point-blank range as Ukraine piled forward in the search of an equaliser.Yet, they were nearly caught on the break when Nolito placed his shot too close to Pyatov with the goal at his mercy.Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was in the crowd reportedly keeping an eye on Dynamo Kiev winger Andriy Yarmolenko ahead of the English champions clash with the Ukrainians next week.And Yarmolenko came alive at the start of the second period as he smashed a shot off the outside of the post.Spain should have sealed all three points when Paco Alcacer was denied by Pyatov after brilliant skill by Isco and Thiago to set up the Valencia man and Nacho was penalised for a foul on Yarmolenko before Mikel San Jose smashed home the rebound.However, De Gea had to come to his side’s rescue again with brilliant saves from Garmash and Oleksandr Zinchenko’s late volley to seal a frustrating night for the hosts.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Spain’s Paco Alcantara, left, celebrates his second goal after scoring against Luxembourg, during their Euro 2016 qualifying soccer match, Group C, between Spain and Luxembourg, at Las Gaunas stadium in Logrono, northern Spain, Friday, Oct. 9, 2015. PHOTO/AFPKIEV, October 13- Spain ended Ukraine’s hopes of automatic qualification for Euro 2016 as Mario Gaspar’s solitary goal on his international debut handed the European Champions a 1-0 win in Kiev on Monday.Cesc Fabregas also missed a penalty on his 100th cap, but Spain were grateful to a fantastic goalkeeping display from David de Gea to seal an eighth consecutive win in Group C.last_img read more

Silence on busway

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card All of which means we don’t hear so much these days about the busway – or its hysterical critics. Few things generate less interest or excitement than the calamity that didn’t happen, which is why you probably haven’t heard much about the Orange Line lately. It’s just too darn safe. When the Orange Line opened last fall, a spate of crashes – caused by careless drivers running red lights – grabbed the public’s attention. State Sen. Richard Alarcon, D-Los Angeles, went so far as to hysterically pronounce the busway “unsafe at any speed.” But since then, the public has grown accustomed to the behemoth silver buses and now understands the dire need to stop at red lights. The number of “near misses” has shrunk by 75 percent, and there have been no crashes since Dec. 13. In fact, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority now reports that collision rates for Orange Line buses are lower than those for the rest of its fleet. The line, with 16,000 daily passengers, is effective, efficient and safe. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Air Force: Can’t live with or without U-2

first_imgThe unmanned Global Hawk reconnaissance aircraft, assembled in Palmdale by Northrop Grumman workers, can take over the U-2’s role of providing reconnaissance images to battlefield commanders, according to a Pentagon budget document. Critics of the proposal point out that the U-2 can carry more intelligence and reconnaissance equipment than the Global Hawk and, in some cases, has more powerful sensors. About 28 U-2s and five trainers are believed to remain in military service. All were built during the 1980s, though the design dates to the 1950s and U-2 aircraft were responsible for discovering Soviet nuclear missiles in Cuba in the 1962 Cuban missile crisis. The Global Hawk has provided more than 15,000 images of targets in the Middle East in the War on Terror over the past year, according to the Pentagon budget document. A larger version now in production is able to carry additional gear for listening to enemy radio transmissions and identifying radar sites, as the U-2 can do. james.skeen@dailynews (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PALMDALE – Congress rejected a Pentagon bid to begin retiring U-2 reconnaissance planes in 2007, but agreed to allow the retirement of up to 10 F-117 stealth fighters. In a compromise reconciling differences between Senate and House of Representatives versions of a defense authorization bill, Congress adopted language that blocks the retirement of any U-2s in 2007 and says after that, the Air Force must show American intelligence gathering won’t be harmed before it can retire any. Congress agreed to an Air Force request to retire 10 of its 52 F-117s, but included language that the 10 aircraft be kept in a condition that would allow them to be recalled. The compromise bill was approved by the Senate and House on Friday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John PhillipsThe U-2 and the F-117 were built by Lockheed Martin, which continues to operate modification and support services for the airplanes in Palmdale. The first operational combat aircraft made to be essentially invisible to radar, the Air Force’s F-117 stealth fighters were used in both the first Persian Gulf War of the early 1990s and in the latest war in Iraq, as well as in Panama and the Balkans. The Pentagon says missiles and other aircraft – including the B-2 bomber and the new F-22 – can now provide stealthy, precision strike capability. Retirement of the 10 F-117 will be gradual. The Pentagon announced last month it was awarding Lockheed Martin a $494 million contract to continue its support work of the F-117 through 2012. “It’ll have minimal impact,” company spokeswoman Dianne Knippel said of the initial retirements. “The way the customer schedules the modifications, we only have one or two aircraft in at a time.” The Pentagon wanted to start retiring the U-2s in fiscal year 2007 and have them all gone in fiscal year 2011, even though the aircraft is capable of flying decades more. In their 2007 budget request, Pentagon officials said they were seeking to speed up the retirement of the aircraft in a move to save about $2 billion. last_img read more
