first_img“National awards not an ornament but symbols of nationhood” – President GrangerMuch deserved but long delayed were the words of President David Granger, after presenting 86 exemplary Guyanese with the ultimate recognition of a grateful nation at this year’s National Investiture Ceremony held at the National Cultural Centre on Thursday.Head of State, President David Granger presents Chief-of-Statf of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), Brigadier George Allan Lewis with his Military Service StarWith much pomp and fanfare and in the presence of distinguished members of society and members of the diplomatic corps, this year’s recipients were bestowed with Guyana’s highest national awards; namely the Order of Roraima, the Cacique’s Crown of Honour, the Golden Arrow of Achievement, the Medal of Service, the Military Service Star, the Military Service Medal and the Disciplined Services Medal for Meritorious Service.Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Umax Adolphus Scotland was presented with the Order of Roraima for his committed and high standard of service in Guyana’s diplomatic quarters, parliamentary service and in the legal profession.Senior Counsel Rex Herbert McKay, was also awarded the Order of Roraima for his long, dedicated and outstanding service as a legal practitioner in Guyana for decades.Those were the two highest awards at the 2016 Investiture Ceremony this year, with the Order of Excellence being Guyana’s highest national Award.NationhoodFollowing the handing out of the 86 awards for the evening, President Granger who is also the Chancellor of the Orders of Guyana was in high praises for the awardees and sought to point out that the national awards were not an ornament but rather the symbols of nationhood.According to the President, the presentation of the awards was recognition and appreciation to patriotic Guyanese for their selfless service and also serves to promote a sense of nationhood. He urged all to reflect on the aspirations and ambitions of those awardees and that their contribution should serve for others to emulate.According to the President, for the nation to present its citizens with the awards is an acknowledgement of the contributions of a citizen male or female, rich or poor, servicemen or civilian. In what could be read as a subtle swipe at preceding administrations, the President was adamant that bestowing such awards on deserving citizens should not be done in a capricious manner or at the whims of anyone, since such a practice could very well be considered unconstitutional. He committed his Administration to ensuring that national awards are bestowed on citizens on a regular basis.PatriotismChancellor of the Judiciary Carl Singh, who also serves as Chairman of the Advisory Council of the Orders of Guyana, was equally emotive in his praise of the awardees in the presence of relatives, friends and well-wishers.Chancellor Singh recalled that the names of the awardees were in fact made public on Independence Day of this year, making this year’s ceremony a two tiered one, since the actual conferring of the awards were only now being had. He told the awardees that with the conferring of the insignias on each of them, they will be recognised apart from the other citizens for their patriotism and contributions to the nation and its development over the years.The awardees, he said, were selected by the President himself – assisted by the advisory council – since they were the persons identified and with “whom he was pleased and saw fit to confer with national honours.” Recalling the words of world renowned statesman, Sir Winston Churchill, Chancellor Singh told those in attendance, “we make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.”According to Chancellor Singh, “for today’s awardees, it is what they in their individual pursuit have given to Guyana, a recognition of their contribution to growth and development of our country.”MeritAwards, Chancellor Singh said, “are made for courage and bravery” and he named the highest national awards that can be bestowed on a Guyanese citizen.He sought to impress on the awardees that the recognitions constitute lasting mementos of “achievement by the men and women of our country whose love and loyalty to their country, their patriotism, their discipline and their dedication to duty has earned the recognition which brings them to today’s ceremony.”According to the Chancellor of the Judiciary, “all Guyanese should seek in their own way to contribute to Guyana as today’s awardees have done… We should each determine for ourselves those qualities which are best suited to unify our country other than divide it, to heal the wounds of our nation, rather than to aggravate its injuries and to secure for generations to come the peace happiness and prosperity of Guyana.”Following a moment of silence in recognition of past awardees Head of State, President Granger took to the dais at the centre of the patriotically adorned stage of the National Cultural Centre.Sustained and dedicated serviceThe first to be accompanied by the smartly and ceremoniously dressed ranks of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) was Senior Superintendent of Police Maxine Graham.She along with Assistant Police Commissioner and Head of the Presidential Guard, Brian Joseph; retired Divisional Commander of the Guyana Fire Service Bernadete Adman;s and retired Senior Superintendent of Prisons Trevor Small; were each presented with the Disciplined Services Medal for Meritorious Service.The Military Service Medal was presented for distinguished service beyond the normal call of duty to GDF Colonels Paul Anthony Aurthur and Nazrul Hussain.Newly appointed Chief-of-Staff, Brigadier George Allan Lewis was bestowed with the Military Service Star for service of an exceptionally high quality and for going beyond the call of duty.Twenty-six Guyanese were conferred with the Medal of Service in recognition for their dedicated service to the country and people in the fields of politics, business, culture, arts, medicine and the care of children among other fields.The Cacique’s Crown of Honour was presented to Ronald Austin, Robert Corbin, Justice BS Roy, Chris Fernandes, Maureen Messiah and Father Malcolm Rodrigues, among others. There were three posthumous awards bestowed since the persons would have died since the announcement of the awardees earlier this year.last_img read more

first_imgOpposition Leader, Bharrat JagdeoPresident David GrangerOpposition Leader demands Constitutional compliance…even though CCJ affirmed Art 106 last monthThe letter written by President David GrangerIn response to a letter that Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo penned demanding that the President and Cabinet resign and Parliament be dissolved – as is constitutionally required when a No-Confidence Motion is passed against Government, President David Granger has responded by saying that his Attorney General is examining “the requests”.While the President has termed the demand as a “request” the Article 106 (6) of Constitution of Guyana states: “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence”.Meanwhile, Article 106 (7) states: “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election”.In a letter written and signed by caretaker President Granger dated July 26, he acknowledged the Opposition Leader’s letter from July 20, in which he demanded the resignation of the President and Cabinet, the dissolution of Parliament, and the naming of an election date.Despite the unambiguity of the Constitution, the President stated in the letter that these “requests” were being examined by Attorney General Basil Williams, “in light of the Constitution of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana and the relevant rulings of the Caribbean Court of Justice”.A No-Confidence Motion was passed against the Granger-led Government on December 21, 2018. However, elections were not held – as was constitutionally required. Instead, Government went to court unsuccessfully arguing that the NCM was not validly passed. The CCJ, having made its final ruling on June 18, 2019, now paves way for General and Regional Elections in September.In his letter, Jagdeo had reminded the President that since July 12, 2019, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) delivered its consequential orders in the matters of Zulkficar Mustapha versus the AG and others, Christopher Ram versus the AG and others, Bharrat Jagdeo versus the AG and others and Charandass Persaud versus Compton Reid and others.He had listed several conditions for the President to accede to, including that the President and his cabinet immediately resign and that the President issue a proclamation dissolving Parliament. He also called for the President to fix a date for the next General and Regional Elections, not beyond September 18, 2019.Jagdeo had reminded the President that CCJ President, Justice Adrian Saunders, had said that when the No-Confidence Motion was passed on December 21, 2019, Article 106 of the Constitution had immediately been activated.According to Justice Saunders when he read the ruling, there was no need for the Court to gloss over the provisions of Article 106 (6 and 7), but it is, in fact, the responsibility of the constitutional actors to be faithful to the rule of law and operate within parameters of the Constitution.“Upon the passage of a vote of no-confidence, the Article requires the resignation of the Cabinet including the President. The Article goes on to state, among other things, that notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and that an election shall be held within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine”.Further, the CCJ President had noted that with the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) also responsible for the conduct that elections, it therefore means that the elections body “too must abide by the provisions of the Constitution”.He went on to point out that elections should have been held on March 21, 2019 following the December passage of the Opposition-sponsored motion, but that process was on “pause” pending the legal proceedings.That process, he added however, was no longer on pause following the Court’s June 18, 2019 ruling, which upheld the validity of the NCM and, thus, triggering the need for fresh elections.This means that General and Regional Elections would have to be held on or before September 18, 2019, to be consistent with the three-month constitutional deadline. Dissolving Parliament is a necessary prerequisite to holding General and Regional Elections.Legal fictionAlthough Article 106 (6) of the Constitution of Guyana clearly states that the President and Cabinet must resign after a no-confidence vote, Vice President and Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan last week claimed that this provision is a “legal fiction”.He made this pronouncement during an appearance on radio programme ‘Hot Seat’, hosted by broadcaster Stan Gouveia, alongside People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Member of Parliament Bishop Juan Edghill.Ramjattan, who is also a lawyer by profession, described Articles 106 (6) and (7) of the Guyana Constitution as “legal fiction” when he was called out by Edghill for not complying with its provisions, that is, for the Government to resign and have elections within three months.“We’re not going to resign! We are not going to resign because we are still… there’s absolutely nothing in the Constitution that indicates a formal resignation. That was gone through by the CCJ and it was even gone through by the High Court”.“Announce what? Because the next article says notwithstanding that resignation, whatever it is, we continue in government. Who will the President send in his resignation to? I could send my resignation in to the President, but then I stop becoming a Minister that will have any powers whatsoever. So it’s a kind of a legal fiction that is spoken to in that article”.last_img read more

first_img“We are pleased. We are not surprised things went pretty well so far generally speaking,” said Collina, who refereed the 2002 World Cup final between Brazil and Germany.The Italian revealed that VAR crews conducted checks on 335 incidents across the 48 group-stage matches, an average of almost seven per game.VAR can be used in four scenarios — after a goal has been scored, for penalty decisions, red card decisions or for a case of mistaken identity of a player who has been booked or sent off.Collina said with the help of technology, officials had achieved a 99.3 percent rate of correct decisions in Russia, compared with an accuracy rate of 95 percent for initial decisions without VAR intervention. “VAR doesn’t mean perfection,” he said. “There could still be some wrong interpretation or even mistakes, so it’s a not a perfection that can be reached having implemented VAR.”“During a competition it’s not possible that everything goes 100 percent perfectly,” Collina added. “Some things have to be fine-tuned based on what has occurred in the first matches and this is our task.” – Complaints –There were 17 reviews during the group stage, 14 of which were carried out by the referee on the pitchside monitor, with the other three dealt with directly by VAR teams.The average time required for a VAR review has been 80 seconds, although that figure is slightly higher for an on-pitch review.“In a couple of cases the final answer could have been given even earlier,” Collina said. “But in terms of being very accurate, the VAR preferred to spend five to 10 seconds more to be very, very sure.”A selection of clips was played during a press conference in Moscow to demonstrate how the VAR procedure works, with some teams having complained about a lack of transparency.Brazil wrote to FIFA asking for an explanation after two key incidents were not reviewed in their 1-1 draw with Switzerland, while Iran coach Carlos Queiroz criticised VAR after Cristiano Ronaldo escaped a red card for an elbow. The footage Collina showed was accompanied by audio recordings of the communication between VAR officials and the referee that is not broadcast during matches.“I think before running you have to learn to walk,” Collina said when asked if such conversations would eventually be made public as in rugby and cricket.“I don’t know what the future will be, it might be possible. Now it’s a bit early because we are still walking.”“If you make known why and how a decision is taken maybe you can clarify and you can get this decision better accepted by the football community,” he added.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Pierluigi Collina refereed the 2002 World Cup final between Brazil and Germany © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVMoscow, Russian Federation, Jun 29 – FIFA referees committee chairman Pierluigi Collina said on Friday he was “pleased” with the impact of the video assistant referee (VAR) system during the group stage of the World Cup.

first_img1 Liverpool defender Joe Gomez’s impact since arriving at the club has been praised by manager Brendan Rodgers.The 18-year-old, signed from Charlton for £3.5million this summer, was expected to go out on loan but, having done well in pre-season, was handed his Premier League debut last weekend.“For a player of 18 to make his Premier League debut away at Stoke against an outstanding player in Jon Walters, with the experience he has, and cope as well as he did was impressive,” Rodgers said.“I thanked Jon after the game for giving him that experience and he spoke highly of him.”Gomez is ostensibly a centre-back who has also played right full back, but has started his Liverpool career at left-back.“I felt comfortable (putting him in the team) as he had played games and was managed well at Charlton,” Rodgers added.“I wanted to assess where his pathway lay in terms of whether he needed a loan or needed to stay here and very quickly he showed me he could be a really important member of the squad.“He can play in many positions, centre-half being the main one, but he has the flexibility and qualities to play at full-back so he is definitely a player who will add great value to our squad.“What struck me when I met him was his maturity. He recognises his opportunity.“When he was 15 or 16 he had the chance to move to bigger clubs than Charlton but he wanted to stay.“He then had a decision to make in the summer with a number of high-profile clubs wanted to take him but he felt his best opportunity to develop and improve was coming to Liverpool.“He has got into the team and I am sure there will be moments along the way when we need to manage him, but he knows there is a lot to learn yet.“It is about assessing and managing where he is at.” Liverpool’s Joe Gomez last_img read more

first_imgMilford GAA Notes*G4M&O Blitz in Cookstown*The G4M+O team took part in a very successful G4M+O blitz as part of the Mid Ulster Arena’s Annual fun day in Cookstown in which they played 5 games (won 4, drew 1). It was a very enjoyable day for all and good preparation to go to Randalstown this week in which they take part in an “Ulster Blitz”. We would like to extend our congratulations to Megan Hunter also on her engagement last weekend.*Seniors*CLG BnaG 2-12 Aodh Ruadh 2-11 The Seniors got a long awaited victory on Saturday night in a thrilling and dramatic encounter in Moyle Park. It looked like more heartache for the lads as a very very good performance looked destined to end in defeat as they were 4 points down as the game went into injury time. The blues started very brightly and played the better football in the first half. They were extremely hungry and tenacious in the tackle and played some nice flowing football but didn’t manage to reflect their dominance on the scoreboard. Aodh Ruadh seemed to be getting their scores a little too handily while na Galloglaigh had to fight hard for theirs and after 15 minutes it was all level at 0-2 apiece. Playing against a decent breeze na Galloglaigh would have been quite happy to go in level at half time but late in injury time a high ball into the BnaG box wasn’t dealt with and resulted in an Aodh Ruadh goal. Luckily there was just enough time for Kane Barrett to point a free before the ref blew the half time whistle with the score 0-5 to 1-4. Again in the second half na Galloglaigh were the better team but didn’t make the umpires at the Aodh Ruadh end work too hard in the heat in the third quarter, while Aodh Ruadh again were always dangerous on the counter and after 45 minutes the score 0-8 to 1-9. Aodh Ruadh had a man sent off after 49 minutes as his clothes line tackle on Joey Cullen seen him receive a second yellow. The heads never dropped in fairness and the lads kept battling and with a few minutes left they were 1 behind, a contentious Aodh Ruadh ‘point’ that was well wide was the only difference between the sides. Just when it looked like they had a chance to possibly get a draw disaster struck. Once again a high ball wasn’t dealt and ended up in the back of the na Galloglaigh net to leave 4 between the sides as the game entered injury time. Then the drama started. Cathal Mc Gettigan found himself almost in the corner at the Aodh Ruadh end and heard the calls to land a high ball into the box, which ended up actually going over the bar from the tightest of angles. A minute later Joey Cullen, who had a stormer in midfield alongside Jonny Logue, was fouled and Christopher Barrett pumped the ball into the box for what would surely be the last piece of action. Substitute Christy Mac Cafferty made a complete nuisance of himself in the 6 yard box but for a moment it seemed like it wasn’t going be enough as the Aodh Ruadh defender won the ball. But then he dropped it! A goal mouth scramble ensued before Christy McCafferty managed to fire home from all of a foot out, much to delight of the home crowd, but to the anger of the Ballyshannon crowd who felt there had been a foul. Another substitute, Anthony Fisher, won the resultant kick out and his cross field ball found Chippie Barrett again whose half-blocked effort just about went over the bar to give na Galloglaigh the lead again for the first time since the 20th minute. Eventually the referee blew the final whistle after 4 minutes of injury time, much to the relief of na Galloglaigh. In fairness, it would have been harsh for the lads to lose this game as for the vast majority of it they were the better teamNext up is Buncrana at home next Sunday. Team: Sean Gallagher, Gavin Grier, Gearoid Horkan, Conor McNulty, Dean Burgess, Gary Merritt, TJ Evesson, Jonny Logue, Joey Cullen, Manus Boyce, Pauric Curley, Christopher Barrett (0-2), Kane Barrett (0-3), Cathal McGettigan (1-7), Paddy Peoples. Subs: Anthony Fisher for Boyce (50m), Christy McCafferty for Curley (60m), Cormac Friel, Paul Sweeney, Brandon Toye, Kieran Sheridan, Caolan Mc Gettigan*Minors*St Eunans B 5-7 CLG BnaG 1-3The Minors had a very disappointing defeat at the hands of St Eunans B Team on Tuesday night. Despite being the better team for the first half they went behind at half time 2-0 to 1-2. The concession of three more soft goals in the second half seen the boys heads drop and they started doing things they wouldn’t normally do to try get themselves back into the game, none of which work. A combination of the tight heat and huge pitch meant they struggled to move the ball as they normally would and only scored one point in the second half. Next up they play Red Hughs. Scorers: Owen Deely (1-1), Kane Barrett (0-2)*U14 Girls*Our U14 girls beat Naomh Mhuire in County Semifinal in Termon on Monday night by a scoreline 8.10 to 2.3. They totally dominated the game and went at Naomh Mhuire from the start. It was a real team performance with Excellent link play all over the pitch. Roisin Doherty, Sinead McCahill, Kellyann Buchanan, Emma McGettigan were best for na Galloglaigh. *U12s*The U12s traveled to St Michaels on Monday evening and were defeated in both the A and B matches. The A Team got off to a terrible start and only recovered late in the second half when the game was pretty much over, but had good displays from Jay Curran and Mick Geever. The B Team had a much closer game but got beat by 3 points. Best for the B Team was Liam Donnelly, Aidan Ferry and Aisling McCormack.
