Time for Caribbean nations to manage their judicial affairs, says CCJ president

first_imgNewsRegional Time for Caribbean nations to manage their judicial affairs, says CCJ president by: – April 12, 2012 Sharing is caring! Share Sir Dennis Byron. Photo credit: nevispages.comBASSETERRE, St Kitts (CUOPM) — The president of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), Sir Dennis Byron, said regional countries should “complete their independence and sovereignty by claiming the rights to completely manage our judicial affairs.” Byron made his comments as he addressed regional journalists at “an engagement meeting” in Port of Spain.The CCJ president said he supported the views of the Trinidad and Tobago calypsonian, “Singing Sandra” who, during the just concluded Carnival celebrations in her homeland, urged Port of Spain to become a full signatory to the court as the oil rich twin island republic celebrates 50 years of political independence.The CCJ, established in 2001, has both an original jurisdiction to interpret the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas and appellate jurisdiction aimed at replacing the London-based Privy Council to which many CARICOM member states belong.But while most of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries are signatories to the original jurisdiction, only Barbados, Guyana and Belize have signed on to the appellate jurisdiction of the CCJ that also functions as an international tribunal interpreting the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas that governs the regional integration movement.According to a report from the Caribbean Media Corporation, CMC, Byron told the forum that he was not supportive of the view that the region is not ready for the CCJ noting that some of the arguments include “excessive delays in the judicial process and that we are yet to meaningfully improve our infrastructure in terms of …our administrative services.”“In my view there is something wrong with this logic. Assuming that there is a need to enhance the quality of justice administration…. the CCJ is currently engaged in change in capacity development in a way that the Privy Council never has been and is not likely to be.“I would think this is a further reason why the CCJ is necessary to improve… and truly develop Caribbean jurisprudence,” he added.Caribbean News Now Tweetcenter_img Share 13 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more

Eliseo Rio Jr. quits as DICT undersecretary due to ‘internal issues’

first_img Rio, who led the government’s search for a third telecommunications provider, said in a television interview on Monday that he has submitted his resignation letter to the Malacañang on Jan. 31. “I just said as far as I’m concerned, DICT does not need any confidential funds. Wala sa mandate namin to conduct surveillance and intelligence activities… I would rather have it given to the NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) and the police,” Rio said. Eliseo Rio Jr. BENJIE CASTRO FOR GMA NEWS He was reassigned as undersecretary in July 2019 when Honasan was appointed as DICT chief. He also served as commissioner of the National Telecommunications Commission from 2001 to 2002 and later on joined Globe subsidiary Bayan Telecommunications as board member. Rio, a retired Army general, served as acting secretary of the DICT and led the bidding process for the third slot as mobile communications provider in 2018. DICT was created by a law signed by then President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III in May 2016 as the main agency that will craft and promote the national development agenda on telecommunications and information technology, taking the function away from the older Department of Transportation and Communications./PN MANILA – Eliseo Rio Jr. has tendered his resignation as undersecretary of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) due to “internal issues.” Rio also contested the need for a P400-million confidential fund for the agency in 2019 – an amount which Secretary Gringo Honasan put back in the DICT’s budget when he was still a senator. “I filed my resignation and awaiting acceptance of the President,” Rio told CNN Philippines. “‘Yung situation sa DICT, I cannot work with the undersecretaries at assistant secretaries eh.” “They are not involving me. I’m supposed to be Undersecretary of Operations, but they are not involving me in decisions,” he added. “‘Yung operations and intelligence, very close ‘yan so whatever intel, involved talaga ang operations. I might as well get out, sayang ang sweldo para sa akin.” Rio added that he left his post due to some conflicting views with other officials in the agency particularly on millions of pesos in confidential funds lodged with the agency, and apparent friction with new appointees.last_img read more

Ruthless Spain maul Liechtenstein to lay down marker

first_imgBy Richard Martin in Barcelona(REUTERS) – Spain started their World Cup qualifying campaign with a crushing 8-0 win over Liechtenstein, laying down a marker in Group G with a ruthless second-half display yesterday.Diego Costa scored his first goal for Spain in almost two years to put Julen Lopetegui’s side ahead in the 10th minute in their first competitive game under their new coach and Sergi Roberto doubled the lead in the 55th.Costa got his second while David Silva and substitute Alvaro Morata also got braces and Vitolo opened his international account as the former world champions ran riot.“Sometimes an opponent’s name can fool you but we played a great game,” said Lopetegui. “We reaped in the second half what we had sowed in the first.”Costa was the focus of the pre-match build-up having netted once in his previous 11 appearances since switching nationalities from Brazil in 2014 and needed only 10 minutes to open the scoring, rising high to head in Koke’s free kick.The entrance of substitute Nolito for Thiago Alcantara at the start of the second half livened up the home side and it was the Manchester City forward who laid the ball on for Roberto to grab his first international goal.The floodgates had opened for Spain, the 2010 world champions who lost in the last 16 of this year’s European Championship.Spain only grew hungrier and Costa wanted another bite. He effortlessly turned two defenders in the area before firing at goalkeeper Peter Jehle’s right foot, calmly nodding in the rebound for the fifth goal.“Players control their destiny and we just try to help them, but Diego is a great player and he proved it today,” added Lopetegui.Costa came off to a standing ovation but his replacement Morata threatened to upstage him with two strikes in under a minute, slamming in at the near post before striking the ball past the hapless Jehle from the edge of the area.Silva had a goal harshly ruled out as stoppage time approached but the City playmaker grabbed his second a minute later with a crisp shot.Silva was soon in on the act, adding to his double in the friendly against Belgium last week by turning in Vitolo’s cross from close range.last_img read more

HSC childcare facility closes amid building safety concerns

first_img“The beam issue was discovered at the end of 2018 but the foundation issue has been going on for a couple of years … I’ve been working on it for about two years,” Bright Horizons program administrator Nancy Martiz said. “That was a project that was ongoing, it was being monitored and we also had a solution in place.” The USC Health Sciences Campus childcare facility Bright Horizons closed March 20 amid building safety concerns. “Last Wednesday, the HSC child care building was determined to be unsafe due to some overstressed roof beams,” the statement released on the USC Employee Gateway said. “As the engineer could not provide the assurance of safety, the children were moved out of the building.” All teachers have also been relocated to Alcazar to ensure they can still teach their respective students and receive full hours and benefits. Children who currently attend Bright Horizons, a childcare facility on the Health Sciences Campus, have been temporarily placed in another facility. (Daily Trojan file photo) “Our plan is, and what we have communicated to the parents at the Health Science Campus is, for those that are incurring any expense because they’ve had to hire alternate care, we will reimburse them up to the cost of what their tuition at the Health Science Playground is,” Bregand said. A report by Capital Construction listing the needed repairs is expected to be released later this week. After the report is finished, repairs, design time, city permits and other construction tasks will be evaluated to ensure the safety of the building. The company has finished the design for the beams and began the process of reinforcement on April 4, Bregand said. As construction begins, both Martiz and Bregand said that making sure the children are cared for is their top priority. “We’ve also made arrangements with Bright Horizons, who is the provider, they have a separate service called ‘Backup Care’ where employees can either find backup care at one of their alternate centers or hire someone to come to their home,” Bregand said.   According to the statement, the building’s foundation underneath the infant care room has been shifting due to soil movement but has been deemed safe for use for the past two years by Capital Construction.   Children attending Bright Horizons have been temporarily placed in another childcare facility named Alcazar. A small number of infants have also been placed in the Duker home. Some families have opted to leave the childcare center for other facilities, said Awilda Bregand, the executive director of benefits. The closure notice was sent to administrators midday on March 20. Parents were notified around 10:30 p.m. The following Monday, USC program administrators, including Martiz, hosted a meeting to inform families about the situation. Detailed notes were sent to family members who were unable to attend. “I am hopeful, that if we are not able to reopen our center for any reason, we are actively working on exploring other spaces on campus,” Martiz said. “Closing a childcare center is not an option for us.” While the parent meeting originally estimated the project would take approximately two to three weeks, the project has expanded to approximately two to three months, according to an update posted on March 27. The administration is also exploring possible solutions in the case that the childcare center is unable to reopen. “The care of our little ones is most important,” Bregand said. “We don’t want anything to disrupt their care ever, but sometimes things happen. This was something that none of us expected … We’ve been really trying to do the best for all the families so they can get the care they need.”last_img read more

Clippers brought playoff intensity in Game 1, and Warriors matched it

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters “They actually respect each other, they like each other, but they’re gonna compete against each other, and they wanted to tell each other about it.”The talk Saturday and still Sunday morning before practice at the University of San Francisco: This is the playoffs, this is what it’s supposed to be like.“You work all year to get to the playoffs, and you kind of want that atmosphere, you want that energy,” Lou Williams said.“I like to see people battle, I love that,” Warriors forward Draymond Green said. “K was 8 for 16 with 23 points, so pretty solid night at the office.” Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates They were blocked 14 times and failed often to convert on transition opportunities: “We threw the ball all over the place, we hit guys in the back of the head, we hit guys in the arms –– our own guys. We had four-on-ones, three-on-twos, three-on-ones and we kept coming up empty,” Rivers said.And there was the matter of keeping cool in the lion’s den that is Oracle Arena.You’ve just got to find a way to do it,” said veteran forward Danilo Gallinari, who Saturday drew just his 17th career technical fouls (15 in the regular season and, now, two in the postseason). “We can’t afford to have those moments because you give them a couple of free throws and the ball. They don’t need that much to get into a rhythm or to score two or three 3s in a row, so we need to do a better job of that.” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Beverley’s defense might have somewhat subdued Durant, a 28.7 points per playoff game scorer, but while the 6-foot-1 guard was pestering the Warriors’ 6-9 superstar, Curry was frolicking in the backcourt and on the boards. He made history as the top playoff 3-point shooter of all time with his eight 3-pointers and grabbed a postseason career-high 15 rebounds.“We made like 10 critical mistakes on Curry,” Rivers said. “One of the things we said before the game, the last two days, ‘Make a mistake on someone else, please no mistakes on Curry.’“And we kept doing it and he kept taking advantage of it. I give them credit, he’s so smart, he took advantage. It felt like every time we made a mistake, Curry took advantage of it.“Some of those (shots) were open and they just can’t be. He came out just bare-naked open on five or six pick-and-roll plays and that can never happen, that literally can never happen. And it did, and that’s on us.”Slowing Curry might be at the top of the checklist, but it’s a long list: Beside Montrezl Harrel’s 26 points and Lou Williams’ 25, the Clippers were stifled offensively. Clippers not in contention for Sixth Man of the Year shot a combined 16 for 58 on Saturday.The Clippers also were outrebounded 53-40 in addition to collecting 17 turnovers – four fewer than the Warriors, whose 21 turnovers felt inconsequential because the Clippers failed to capitalize.Related Articles Coaches and players attributed the ejections to an abundance of caution by official Ed Malloy, insisting that otherwise they were unwarranted.“He’s a Chicago kid, grew up and played in the Chicago area, so those dudes play with a different type of grit, so I can appreciate that about Pat,” added Durant, who grinned widely during his interactions with Beverley. “I thought it was fun.”Ditto, said the Clippers’ fiery leader: “It was fun out there.”Rivers agreed: No harm, no foul.“The Pat and Durant thing I liked,” Rivers said. “It’s funny, neither one of those guys were trying to fight or anything like that, and it looked like both of them were actually enjoying it, having fun. SAN FRANCISCO – A snarling, lips-flapping, arms-flailing Patrick Beverley might not seem like anyone’s ideal guest, but after the Warriors won Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round series against the Clippers, they seemed pleased to be hosting him.It’s as if Beverley’s infectious intensity inspired them too as they embarked on a quest for a third consecutive NBA title. That’s unfortunate for the Clippers, whose composure was tested as neither calls nor shots went their way in Saturday’s 121-104 loss, when Steph Curry doused them with 38 points, one fewer than the Clippers’ entire starting lineup scored.Beverley and Durant both will enter Game 2 on Monday night at Oracle Arena with two technical fouls apiece of the seven allotted in the playoffs. Both were T’d up twice within 19 seconds and ejected with 4:41 left Saturday.“I’ve been playing against Pat Beverley since he was at Arkansas so I kind of know what he brings,” said Golden State forward Kevin Durant on Saturday night, when put up a relatively ho-hum 23 points with Beverley guarding him tightly, yapping all the while – or until both were bounced, anyway.
