Prosecution given time to produce forensic report

first_imgGRBD fraud case…as Defence questions motivation behind chargesThe trial of former members of the Guyana Rice Development Board (GRDB) who are accused of fraudulent omission continued before city Magistrate Leron Daly on Thursday, when Magistrate Daly gave the Prosecution until March 12 to produce the forensic reports substantiating these allegations.These reports have formed the basis on which the charges were laid via the work of the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU).In May last year, People’s Progressive Party Members of Parliament Dharamkumar Seeraj and Nigel Dharamlall; former Deputy General Manager of GRDB, Ricky Ramraj; former General Manager of the GRDB, Jagnarine Singh; former GRDB Board member Badrie Persaud; and former Deputy Permanent Secretary (Finance) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Prema Roopnarine, were allAttorney-at-Law Anil Nandlallreleased on bail by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on a string of charges.According to attorney for the accused persons, Anil Nandlall, the delay in producing the said reports is hindering the defence’s ability to properly cross-examine witnesses. He made this comment prior to the Magistrate adjourning the matter to March 12.“Six consecutive times they have refused to produce this report. Instead, on the last occasion, and in our absence, they produced the author of the report. We never asked for the author of the report to be produced, we can’t, say, sensibly cross-examine the author of the report without reading the report, so we need the report,” the attorney said on Thursday.He called on the Prosecution to fully disclose materials that the defence requires, as long as those materials are in their possession.Nandlall later questioned the motivation behind the charges. “Why is the prosecution not presenting this report? Was it the report was altered or fabricated to lay the basis for the institution of fabricated charges? These are fundamental questions we have to ask. We have suspected from the beginning that these charges are witch-hunting exercises, and they were all concocted and fabricated for political persecution,” he stressed.The six former GRDB members were charged one day after they had been summoned by SOCU for questioning in relation to the operations of the GRDB between the years 2011 and 2015. The first charge alleged that, in 2011, the defendants omitted to enter some $52 million in the GRDB ledger; while the second charge stated that the then board members had omitted to enter a sum of $77.3 million into the said ledger. Other charges state that between the years 2014 and 2015, the sums of $130 million, $9.7 million and $145 million were respectively omitted from the GRDB register.last_img read more

Arroyo wraps up league

first_imgSOUTH EL MONTE – It was a long time coming, but when all was said and done the Arroyo High School boys basketball team finally found itself on top of the Mission Valley League. Jeremy Morita led a big second-half charge, finishing with 27 points Wednesday as the visiting Knights clinched their first league title in almost two decades with a 61-60 victory over South El Monte. Morita hit three 3-pointers in the third-quarter run and scored 18 of his 27 points in the second half. “Jeremy is one of the top five players in the San Gabriel Valley, period,” McCullough said. “He’s probably not known because he’s here with us at Arroyo, but he is one of the best players in the Valley.” Arroyo finally broke through in the fourth quarter when Morita hit a free throw to give the Knights a 48-47 lead. The Knights then extended their lead to 55-48 on a 3-pointer by Morita that sent Arroyo’s fans – who made up more than half the crowd – into a frenzy. The Eagles (11-10, 6-3) didn’t go down easily, however, pulling to within 60-58 on two clutch free throws by junior guard Phillip Salas with 28.7 seconds left. “This win was huge,” Arroyo coach Lydell McCullough said. “I’m so proud of these kids. We haven’t won a league title in 19 years and the kids wanted it so bad.” The Knights (13-12, 8-1) trailed by as many as 13 early in the second half, but their strategy of slowing down what had been an up-tempo game and the hot shooting of Morita brought the deficit to one, 47-46, going into the fourth quarter. center_img After a foul shot by Arroyo’s Anthony Vasquez put the Knights back up by three, the Eagles’ Juan Perez charged in for a layup to make it 61-60 and gave SEM new life with less than four seconds remaining. But Arroyo’s inbounds pass went to an open Knight and the Eagles were unable to foul, setting off a huge on-court celebration by the Knights’ players, coaches and fans. Sophomore forward Manny Acosta led the Eagles with 21 points, but scored only two in the fourth quarter. “It’s tough, one point at home is tough,” South El Monte coach Robert Burgess said. “We needed a win to win league and we didn’t do it, so now we just gotta try to do good in CIF.” darren.spoon@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2239 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Another bad break for the Clippers

first_imgNow, “if they get healthy” coming to Staples anytime soon. Livingston, wheeled off the court with his leg splinted from ankle to thigh and a dozen medical and team attendants around him, was diagnosed quickly with a dislocated knee – a doctor had to pop it back into joint right there on the floor. The 21-year-old point guard whose NBA progress has been slowed by injuries (right shoulder, right kneecap two seasons ago, and back trouble last season) is gone again, likely for the rest of the season, with a running back’s knee. As Cassell goes from comforter of the afflicted to fulltime starter at the point, the Clippers have to hope he’s got two full good months in him. The 37-year-old was at his energetic best Monday, a fearless, tumbling drive shortly before halftime making you believe Elgin Baylor had traded for Allen Iverson, but let’s see if he can keep it up. Without Bobcats killer Chris Kaman in the starting lineup (he said he had “the dead flu”), and then without Livingston, the Clips (now 27-29) won this game they had to win against Charlotte (22-35) by 100-93. Eleventh in the conference four days earlier, they moved into a tie with New Orleans for the eighth spot in the playoffs. It could be worse. Or maybe it got worse right then with 3:50 gone in the game, in a play you don’t want to see again. A year ago this week, the Clippers were coming off a 19-point win over the Lakers. Now they’re about to blow through February without a victory in the month against a team with a winning record. Bickerstaff called them “a good, solid basketball team.” Meaning, I think, they ought to be doing better. While the marquee at Staples Center advertised the Clippers and Bobcats, a banner outside the next-door Convention Center billed a conference on retroviruses and opportunistic infection. Now, this was a doubleheader. The Clippers were favored by 10 in the nightcap. I took the retroviruses minus the 3 in the opener. What’s been bugging the Clippers? Did we all oversimplify things by assuming the team that moved up 10 games to 47-35 last season, that edged the Lakers for best-in-L.A. honors, that won a playoff series for the first time in 30 years and two franchise moves, would keep right on improving with essentially the same roster? “I’m not saying I necessarily expected a straight lineup, (but) I’m disappointed with where we are,” said Dunleavy, who went so far as to bring three Camp Pendleton Marines to practice last week to try to buck up his troops. “I don’t think anybody has the real answer to it. There’s all kinds of potential factors, everything from conditioning to injuries to guys getting new contracts that added pressure.” Yeah, his might be the one season that can’t be blamed on Donald Sterling. Cassell, Kaman and Tim Thomas – and Dunleavy himself – got some of the owner’s money last summer. Still, you watch the Clippers this season and you get a nasty feeling that Sterling karma is dragging them back down. You can’t run a team as badly as he did for as long as he did and expect to set everything right overnight. So, a year later, you have all the disconnected play that Clippers teams of the past have been known for, you have Corey Maggette bickering over playing time. And now you have this rotten-luck injury to Livingston, which felt to old-timers like the nights Marques Johnson and Danny Manning went down. I came to Staples Center for a fresh angle on the Clippers. Only to find I’d seen all this before.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! I’d planned to wrap up the bad and good news in one sentence, noting that if last season had never happened, this season would be viewed as the Clippers’ best in more than a decade. I was going to kid about the man-bites-dog headlines we’d have been writing then. Just when this Clippers season couldn’t get any uglier, Shaun Livingston went up and missed a breakaway lay-up early in Monday night’s game against Charlotte and came down with his left knee twisted sickeningly. Livingston rolled under the basket, squeezing the discombobulated joint. Sam Cassell’s own face contorted in pain as he raced the trainers from the bench to the scene of the accident. I’d come to Staples Center to write about how, two-thirds of the way through a shipwreck of a season, the Clippers should look at the standings and feel blessed to be part of a six-team fight for the last western playoff slots. center_img Clippers Eye .500 Season. Clippers in Playoff Chase. Clippers Hottest Team in Town as Lakers Slump. I was going to transcribe what Mike Dunleavy said in the Clippers coach’s office before the game. “Bottom line is, right now, we’re still right there,” Dunleavy said after talking about everything that’s gone wrong. “It’s up for grabs for us.” And I was going to quote Bernie Bickerstaff from the Bobcats coach’s pre-tip-off chat in the hallway, the optimistic note he struck about the Clippers. “If they get healthy, they’re still within striking distance,” Bickerstaff said. “They’ve got experience with Sam and (Cuttino) Mobley. They still can make a run.” last_img read more

She just never imagined that she could be chosen and this is the first time that she has been lucky.Jennifer enjoys reading and watching television – that is when she does get the time to relax.Jennifer is into angels. In fact the initial M that she had put on her ticket after her own name represents the name of two of her angles. Also, she had just received a deck of angel cards and a dream catcher from her son Lee’s girlfriend, who is called Michelle and had hung up the dream catcher just before she was selected for the show. Jennifer and Michelle cannot believe how her dream came through so instantly.
