…calls for jailing of dishonest officials…anti-bribery training launchedA two-week training exercise intended to assist investigators in the fight against bribery and corruption has been launched by the Public Security Ministry under the auspices of the United Kingdom High Commission.UK High Commissioner Greg Quinn; Special advisor to SOCU, Sam Sittlington; along with two UK fraud experts who will be conducting the trainingUK High Commissioner Gregory Quinn stressed the need for persons to be held accountable for bribery and corruption. He made it clear thus: “There is no place for corruption within security agencies in Guyana. If officials or individuals cannot work with honesty and integrity, then they should be…prosecuted and imprisoned as necessary,” Quinn stated.“If people don’t like the sound of that, then frankly (that’s) tough. Security agencies cannot expect respect and cooperation from the public if they themselves are not willing to operate within, and be subject to, the law. All of you can and must set the examples for everyone to follow,” he expanded.In his address to the participants, Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Basil Williams, noted that the training was especially important with Guyana preparing for operation of the oil and gas sector.The Investigators participating in the training“To successfully fight against corruption, there has to be effective detection, investigation, analysis of evidence, and prosecution of crime, ultimately leading to convictions. It is for this reason that this course is important,” Williams stressed.The training is expected to be conducted by two UK experts who are experienced in anti-money laundering and white-collar crime investigations. It is understood that investigators from the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU), the Customs Anti- Narcotics Unit (CANU), the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), the State Assets Recovery Unit (SARU), and the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) are participating in the training.Also present at the opening were Public Security Minister, Khemraj Ramjattan; Acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine, and the UK’s Special Advisor attached to the Special Organised Crime Unit, Sam Sittlington.There have been, for locals, several training initiatives wherein UK specialists have been involved. Last year, local immigration officers underwent the Risk and Liaison Overseas Network (RALON) training conducted by the UK’s Immigration Enforcement International.The training had covered three fundamental issues: overview of human trafficking, enhancing of interview skills when dealing with arriving passengers, and overall increased awareness of the latest trends and concerns in the wider Caribbean.The UK has done much of its security sector collaboration through the security reform project, which began in 2007 and was scrapped in 2009, after the British Government had requested to have oversight of the programme to ensure that there was ‘value for money’.The former Government had disagreed with the manner in which the British Government had wanted the programme to be run, claiming that Britain had sought to intrude upon Guyana’s sovereignty.However, the British Government has said the Government of Guyana had submitted a different proposal, one which had focused on Police modernisation rather than a holistic approach to reform. The intention was to build a workable basis for improving national security while reducing crime in Guyana.Government believes that, once implemented, Guyana’s security sector will be significantly strengthened, and hopefully, this will lead to a reduction in the number of illicit activities that take place.President David Granger has also said there is need for a stronger Police Force, one that is better equipped with all tools necessary to function adequately.

A local restaurant has proved that customer loyalty goes a long way by accepting a gift voucher which was an incredible 14 years old.The team at the Lemon Tree in Letterkenny were amazed to see a voucher from 2004 being presented as payment last night.But they had no problem accepting the voucher with their never-ending expiry policy. Photo via @the.lemon.tree.restaurant FacebookThe Lemon Tree, which is Letterkenny’s number one restaurant on TripAdvisor, has gone through quite a change since 2004. In fact, the restaurant isn’t even located in the same building anymore!The voucher featured the old red doors and yellow awnings which once featured on Lower Main Street before the Lemon Tree underwent a renovation and later moved to behind the Courtyard Shopping Centre.“€50 doesn’t go out of date, so why should a voucher?” said restaurant Chef Chris Molloy.This isn’t the first time that the Lemon Tree has accepted vouchers from almost 10 years ago, but this week’s was probably the oldest, said Chris. “We treat vouchers like cash. The couple who used it came across it while they were moving house. They didn’t expect us to take it but we were happy to.”While some businesses operate vouchers with expiry dates of up to 6 and 12 months, customers who are picking up gifts at the Lemon Tree can rest assured they’ll be put to good use…. eventually!No voucher is too old for this Donegal restaurant! was last modified: May 13th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:letterkennyrestaurantthe Lemon Tree
LANCASTER – A research engineering manager who ran unsuccessfully for the Westside Union School District board last November has been appointed to fill a vacant seat. Steven DeMarzio, 45, of Palmdale was named to replace Deborah Rutkowski-Hines, who resigned from the board Jan. 2, citing personal reasons. “I think I’m still qualified to do it, and I still have a passion to serve the community,” DeMarzio said. DeMarzio said he supports the board’s decision to place a $55 million school construction bond measure before voters on the June 6 ballot.

Trustees selected DeMarzio from among six candidates at a special meeting Thursday. He was sworn in after his appointment. Board President Gwen Farrell said DeMarzio has shown commitment to the district by volunteering at Quartz Hill Elementary School. He was recognized by the PTA for his service. “He’s been coming to board meetings for a couple of years. I think he convinced us all that he had a real passion for kids,” Farrell said. At a January board meeting, Farrell wanted to appoint former trustee Christine LeBeau to the seat, but the suggestion died for a lack of a motion from a fellow trustee. LeBeau finished fourth in balloting in the November election, losing by 65 votes.

It’s the culture of corruption that’s alienated the public and given City Hall such a poor reputation. If Garcetti means what he says, he’s got a lot of work ahead of him to exorcise the demons of corruption from the municipal temple. But if he succeeds, it would truly be divine. Issuing a call for decorum at Los Angeles City Council meetings, council President Eric Garcetti got a case of old-time religion. “I view this chamber as a synagogue,” Garcetti said, which would make him and his colleagues the high priests and priestesses of City Hall. “The moment we degrade this place is the moment we degrade democracy.” Amen. Now if only Brother Eric would lead the charge in chasing the money-changers – the lobbyists, the contractors and the special interests – out of the temple. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It’s not often that a voter is allowed to play a saxophone in a polling station.But then again it’s not often that a polling station is in someone’s front living room.So nobody was arguing with the lone resident of Inishfree Barry Pilcher today when he did just that. Pilcher, who has lived alone on the island for 20 years, cast his vote after presiding officer Hugh O’Donnell travelled by boat especially for the occasion.Voting on most of Donegal’s islands including Gola, Tory, Inishboffin and Inisfree has now finished while voters can continue on Arranmore until 7pm.A total of 766 people are registered to vote on Donegal’s five islands – three days ahead of everyone else in the Fiscal Treaty Referendum.Out of the 25 islanders on Gola entitled to vote, a total of 14 did so. The votes will be collected this evening and left under lock and key at Glenties Garda station.Pictured right is a Garda leaving Tory Island today after the vote.Picture courtesy of Deirdre Sweeney, Tory Hostel.DONEGAL MAKES SWEET MUSIC AS IT CASTS THE FIRST VOTES IN FISCAL TREATY was last modified: May 28th, 2012 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:Barry PilcherFISCAL TREATYInishfree
Pearse Doherty TDSinn Fein TD Pearse Doherty has insisted the government still has no plan on water tax credits.Deputy Doherty was speaking after the Minister of Finance failed to bring forward any amendments to the Finance Bill to implement any tax credits.It also came after a sit-in by Sinn Fein TDs in the Dáil after Joan Burton refused to answer questions from Deputy Mary Lou McDonald on whether or not the Government would take Irish Water payments out of wages or social welfare payments. The Gaoth Dobhair politician said: “Weeks after the Budget announcement that tax payers would receive 20% of water charges back in credits the Minister has still not brought forward details on how this will work.“These changes must be legislated for in the Finance Bill but it was not in the original Bill and no government amendments addressing this issue have been tabled at Committee Stage.“The later in the process any such amendments are introduced the less debate and scrutiny is possible. The question therefore is: is Minister Noonan delaying to avoid discussion or is he just clueless as to how to make sure everybody benefits?‘The Tánaiste has likewise been short on detail when it comes to the promised Social Welfare rebate for water charges. “There is clearly no real plan in place for water tax credits and what we are seeing is a government panicking to come up with a plan. This will be time wasted however as the public has made it clear that it will not tolerate water charges, regardless of any half-baked sops from Ministers Noonan or Burton.“With each passing day the demand for an abolition of water charges mounts. The government should scrap the charges and stop tinkering around the edges.” GOVERNMENT HASN’T PLANNED FOR WATER TAX CREDITS – DOHERTY was last modified: November 14th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Irish WaterMary Lou MacDonaldPearse Dohertywater
