Handing over of report delayed

first_imgThe report on the findings of the Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the deadly Camp Street Prison riot has not been submitted. The report was scheduled to be submitted to President David Granger on Tuesday.The CoI panel tasked with compiling the findingsAccording to information reaching Guyana Times, the report is now expected to be handed over at the Ministry of the Presidency some time today. The CoI began on March 8 and was expected to conclude by March 28, but the Commission applied for a two-month extension, which was granted. Testimonies and cross-examination were wrapped up on May 9. Retired Justice James Patterson served as Chairman of the Commission of Inquiry while Dale Erskine and Merle Mendonca served as Commissioners.After two days of rioting at the Camp Street penitentiary, 17 inmates died after fire, reportedly set by inmates, engulfed the Capital A block filled with scores of prisoners on March 3. President Granger who serves as Chairman of the National Security Committee ordered an inquiry into the fire after inmates met with Minister of State Joseph Harmon and Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan.At the meeting, the inmates and the Ministers reached a “gentleman’s agreement” whereby some of the concerns of the prisoners were addressed. These negotiations did not sit well with some sections of society and was met with criticism.Outlined in the terms of reference, which covered the period March 2 to 4, the CoI aimed to enquire into all the circumstances surrounding the deaths of the prisoners, to report the findings and conclusions to the Minister of Public Security, and to make recommendations on any action that should be taken to avoid a recurrence. When the witness statements had concluded on May 9, Commission Counsel Excellence Dazzle noted that witnesses’ testimonies along with many other materials which the Commission had in its possession would be used to compile the report.On April 20, the Guyana Bar Association withdrew from the CoI citing time constraints in cross-examination of witnesses.last_img read more

CARN ACTOR KEITH ENTERS THE CUT-THROAT WORLD OF THE PUB QUIZ

first_imgDonegal actor Keith McErlean steps into the cut-throat world of table quizzes when he stars in RTE’s latest comedy drama Trivia.Viewers are getting a double dose of the 35-year-old Cardonagh-man as he is also starring as restaurant worker Shane Harte in the raunchy foodie series Raw.In Trivia, McErlean plays Adam Lynch, a local charmer who owns the village pub and gets out from behind the bar every Tuesday night to do his bit as a slightly bemused team member in the weekly pub quiz. The quiz is always, always won by his team captain, a fat, bald and obnoxious know-it-all called Lawrence who happens to be Adam’s best mate.Now based in London, McErlean both roles were totally different and gave him the opportunity to show his different sides as an actor.He told the RTE Guide: “Adam is very different from Shane Harte in RAW. Shane has a bit of a short fuse. He’s probably not the kind of guy you’d want to go for a pint with. I’d rather go for a pint with Adam Lynch.”McErlean first came to our attention when he appeared as Barry in the popular Celtic Tiger soap Bachelor’s Walk ten years ago. “Absolutely. Nobody was familiar with me before Bachelors Walk. When you have that much exposure in one go, you can very easily be pigeonholed.“There was a few years of being offered the idiot in things and it did slow work down so it’s nice to get back on the telly and play something straight,” he told the RTE Guide.McErlean has come a long way since he was a 17-year-old extra in Mel Gibson’s Braveheart when he first caught the acting bug.Trivia is on RTÉ One on Thursday nights at 10:15pm.CARN ACTOR KEITH ENTERS THE CUT-THROAT WORLD OF THE PUB QUIZ was last modified: February 4th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more

DANIEL REVEALS BRAVE MAJELLA WILL SHAVE HER HAIR BEFORE CHEMO

first_imgSinger Daniel O’Donnell has revealed his wife plans to shave off her hair before she starts chemotherapy for breast cancer.Daniel and MajellaThe Donegal star said partner Majella is recovering after undergoing a successful lumpectomy and was told last week that she will start extra treatment on September 12.The Kincasslagh man revealed it had been a difficult time for them, but his wife was a strong and healthy woman who wanted to take control of her hair falling out. “At the minute she is cutting her hair,” said O’Donnell.“She is going to have it shaved. She doesn’t want her hair to fall out.“She decided she is going to take charge of her hair going.“It’s very short now and her next step after she has her first treatment she is going to get it all off.” O’Donnell said reports that his 53-year-old wife was clear of cancer were incorrect.He said he had meant the surgery had removed the cancer but there was still a possibility she would need more treatment, like the majority of patients.It is not yet known if she will also have to undergo radiation therapy, or if she will decide to undergo surgery to prevent the cancer reoccurring in the future, he added.DANIEL REVEALS BRAVE MAJELLA WILL SHAVE HER HAIR BEFORE CHEMO was last modified: August 28th, 2013 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:breast cancerdaniel o’donnellMajella O’Donnellshave hairlast_img read more

Gregor Townsend to honour Glasgow Warriors deal despite Harlequins link

first_imgGregor Townsend has played down reports that he could be in line for a move south of the border.It was suggested earlier in the week that English club Harlequins were targeting Townsend as their new director of rugby when Conor O’Shea leaves in the summer to take over as Italy’s head coach.Townsend signed a new deal in December keeping him in Glasgow until summer 2017.The 42-year-old has categorically denied a move was on the horizon, calling it a ‘non story’: “There was some speculation in the media about my future,“I have a contract here for next year and I’m really looking forward to next season.Townsend said: “The focus is completely on the game (tomorrow) and the players know I’m contracted here until next year.“I love working with this group of players, I see a lot of improvement coming from them.” The reigning Pro-12 champions are looking to make it eight wins in a row as they take on Scarlets in Wales on Saturday.A change in form has seen the Warriors climb to third place in the table and are two points behind leaders Leinster and Connacht and with three games left, Townsend says destiny is in their own hands:Townsend added the chance of a home semi-final is a huge incentive for the team to finish the season as strongly as possible:“We know what’s at stake, we know how tough it’s going to be but I’ve got huge belief in this group that we can do it.“I think we’d have to win all three to get a home semi-final but the initial aim is to make sure we’re in the play-offs.”Winger Lee Jones insists speculation regarding the future of their head coach hasn’t affected the team ahead of tomorrow’s game with Scarlets:Jones said: “Gregor has assured us that he’s with the club for at least another year on his contract.“It doesnt change anything moving forward or for the game at the weekend.”Warriors face Scarlets, Zebre and Connacht in the three remaining fixtures of the season, Jones said they aren’t getting too far ahead of themselves:“One game at a time, we look at the Scarlets game, if we win that there’s a higher percentage chance we’re in the semi-finals.“Its a big game for Scarlets as well which makes it a big fixture but we wont be looking any further ahead than that.“It’s three important games to see out the season.”last_img read more

Caixinha wants Rangers players to help Scotland qualify

first_imgCaixinha believes his homegrown talent must now force their way into the Scotland team if Rangers are to develop a strong resolve.Defender Bruno Alves was on duty with Portugal last week while Lee Hodson was involved with Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland set-up.Speaking about his internationals, the Portuguese coach told RangersTV: “It is important for our players when they go there that they receive minutes. “It is also important for our players when they go there, that the national teams are fighting to be present in the great competitions of the world – and what better than a World Cup? Pedro Caixinha wants Rangers to play their part in Scotland’s push to reach the 2018 World Cup.The national team have fired themselves back into contention for next summer’s finals, with manager Gordon Strachan deciding to base the core of his Dark Blues’ line-up on Celtic’s “Invincibles” group.While Craig Gordon, Kieran Tierney, Scott Brown, Stuart Armstrong, James Forrest and Leigh Griffiths played key roles in Scotland’s back-to-back wins against Lithuania and Malta, no Rangers players made the squad.That is a situation that has to change according to Rangers boss Caixinha as he looks to stiffen his own side’s winning mentality. “It is important for them to come back, enjoy winning and have that spirit – that is always good for us as a team and Rangers needs to have not only players in those national teams but also we want to have players in the Scottish national team.”He added: “It’s one of the goals from us. We know they are doing well and we expect them at least to make the play-offs, and we want to have a contribution from our players in that run.”last_img read more
