8 Ivoirians Risk Extradition

first_imgThe Supreme Court of Liberia will shortly decide whether or not to extradite eight Ivoirians back to their homeland to be tried for their alleged involvement in war crimes, including the killing of seven UN peacekeepers.The Ivorian government in 2012 asked the Liberian Government through the Ministry of Justice to extradite eight of its citizens, alleging that “they have been charged with multiple offenses ranging from rape and mercenarism as well as murder and theft of property.”Shockingly, the Ivorian government’s request was rejected by Magistrate Nelson Chineh, when he presided over the matter, at the Monrovia City Court, at the Temple of Justice in early 2012.Magistrate Chineh’s denial prompted the Liberian government to seek legal redress at the High Court level.At yesterday’s hearing, the Supreme Court only managed to listen to legal arguments between state lawyers and the defense team, but did not deliver its final determination (ruling).The High Court also did not mention when they would deliver their ruling in the matter. “We are going to reserve ruling on the matter, and it will be delivered pending the issuance of a notice of assignment,” the Full Beach of the Supreme Court declared yesterday.If the High Court accepts Magistrate Chineh’s ruling,  that will end the legal battle between state prosecutors and defense lawyers for extradition and set the stage for trial of the eight Ivorians to take place here.But, if the Supreme Court reverses   Chineh’s decision it means that the state will be able to extradite the eight men to their country, where they will be tried.  This means their right to a fair and impartial trial will now be the concern of their Liberian lawyers.During the  argument,  Solicitor  General  Cllr. Betty Lamin Blamo told the  court to deny the request  seeking  for the accused Ivorians to be released from further detention, where they have been since their arrest in 2012,  in the absence of being prosecuted on multiple criminal offenses, including murder.Cllr. Blamo further argued that, if it is done in that way it would raise serious questions against the country’s legal system. In counter argument, the lead defense lawyer, Cllr. Tiawon Gongloe, appealed with the High Court to deny the state’s request.  “Since they did not appeal against the denial for the extradition of our clients, then they should be released from continued detention.”Initially, during the first hearing at the lower court, Magistrate Chineh publicly declared, “I’m rejecting the state’s eight-count petition on several legal grounds in keeping with law to set the stage for trial of the defendants at Criminal Court ‘A’ Temple Justice.”On 19 December 2012, the government, through the Ministry of Justice, filed the petition seeking the extradition of the eight Ivoirians accused of launching a deadly attack which resulting into the killing of seven UN peacekeepers from Niger plus one Ivoirian solider.But Magistrate  Chineh went ahead to cite  article 6(a) of the extradition treaty between Liberia and Cote d’Ivoire saying,  “extradition shall not be granted if the competent authority of the requested state has proceedings against the person sought for in respect of the offense or offenses for which extradition is requested.”Defending his ruling, the Magistrate said, government had drawn-up an indictment and had secured the issuance of a writ of arrest from the First Judicial Circuit Criminal Assizes of Montserrado County, which charged the eight Ivoirians with the same offenses for which they are sought to be extradited.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgWokie Dolo, Miss Liberia 2017, has embarked on a massive voter registration (VR) awareness campaign to encourage eligible Liberians to turn out and register to participate in the elections in October.The 2017 voter registration exercise, which started on February 1, is experiencing a series of hitches which have slowed the process in some parts of the country.Faulty cameras and the shortage of VR forms at some centers have stalled the process with some individuals being denied access to the registration process.The National Elections Commission (NEC) says it is targeting 2.5 million people to be registered by the March 7 VR closing date. A week shy of the halfway time frame, about 1 million voters have been registered, NEC Chairman Cllr. Jerome Korkoya confirmed last week.

She has produced jingles and a video demonstrating the importance of the voter registration exercise.She is also using social media including Facebook, instagram and twitter on the campaign trail.

BHS Alumni in US to host student conference in Guyana

first_imgThe New York Tri-State Chapter of The Bishops’ High School (BHS) Alumni Association is holding its second career guidance student conference at its alma mater in Georgetown, Guyana between October 16 and 19, 2019.The three-day conference, which will be held at the school on Carmichael Street, is titled “After Graduation – What’s Next?” Once again, the event aims to provide the school’s senior students with a unique opportunity to be exposed to a variety of perspectives on career choices, higher education, and vocational opportunities.This year, however, the conference has expanded both in scope and reach. Alumni Chapter President Wayne Knight notes that this year the group has targeted Fifth Form students in addition to the sixth formers, the original beneficiaries of this opportunity.“As we are cognisant that students tend to leave high school after either Fifth or Sixth Form, we wanted to make sure that regardless of when they opt to leave, we would have the chance to interact with them in a meaningful way in terms of professional guidance,” the Alumni President explained.The conference will host for the first time a career fair and three sports clinics.“We invited businesses to our career fair, where they will have the opportunity to speak with students and showcase their businesses, while also showing the students what career opportunities might be available to them in their organisations.  Our association will also be providing the school with sports equipment that we will utilise as we have also added sports clinics in table tennis, badminton and basketball,” Chapter President Knight related.Students will take part in a teambuilding event and will also gain skills in CV writing and interview preparation.The conference will begin on Wednesday, October 16 with a Welcome Assembly and registration of the students. The highlight of that day will be the Career Fair and the first sports clinic that will be held at 13:00h and 15:30h respectively.The main events will be held on Thursday, October 17 and Friday, October 18 with concurrent presentations and workshops daily featuring 37 presenters representing a wide variety of fields of study from entrepreneurship, law, IT, medicine, culinary arts, and engineering to new areas including veterinary medicine and agriculture, energy, alcoholism and substance abuse counselling, and real estate and asset management services, to name a few.“We hope that by providing the students with information and some of our own experiences, they will be better equipped in making decisions about their careers. We also hope in some cases to show them career paths that they may not have thought about as viable options,” said Knight.“We will be providing information about traditional and non-traditional careers, as well as many life skills that they will hopefully be able to start to cultivate now, and then continue to develop in the future.  I also hope that the conference will open their eyes to the broad spectrum of opportunities available to them,” said Chair of the Conference Planning Committee, Jo-Ann Davis-Valz. A former Head Girl of The Bishops’ High School, Davis-Valz says she is excited to be able to give back to the school that has been so pivotal in her own development.“I am especially looking forward to meeting the other presenters as an extension of the “true comrade and true friend” relationship as reflected in the school motto.”Current Headteacher of The Bishops’ High School, Marilyn Gibson, in looking forward to the event, said she hoped students would use the guidance given to be better able to decide where they would like to be in the next five years.“Strive to be a (well) rounded person not just an academic student,” she advised. The Headmistress hopes that Communications, History and Foreign Languages will be among the career paths represented in the future.last_img read more
