Two Senior Lawyers Escaped Incarceration

first_imgIn its opinion (judgment) on Wednesday, August 13, the Supreme Court took several drastic measures against senior lawyers and their clients, as part of effort to restore the credibility of the Judiciary.Some of those affected by Wednesday’s decision were Cllr. Musa Dean, Cllr. Nicholas Edward and their client, one Allen E. Brown.Dean and Edward are both senior counselors of the Supreme Bar and members of the Dean and Dean Law Firm.Cllrs Dean and Edward had filed a “Bill of Information” against the late Cllr.  Emmanuel Kollie, the Judge, who heard the case between their client, Allen Brown and his wife Meata Huge Brown.A Bill of Information is a formal written accusation made by a prosecutor attorney charging a named person with a specific crime.Delivering the High Court’s opinion on the matter, Wednesday, Associate Justice Jamesetta H. Wolokolie publicly ordered that “Counselors Musa Dean and Nicholas Edward both of the Dean and Dean Law Firm are hereby fined US$500 each, which is to be paid within 72 hours. This is an abuse of the legal process.”She further stated that their punishment ranges from suspension, expulsion, fine and detention.“Because of the outbreak of the Ebola virus and our decision to decongest the prison center, we will not send them to jail,” Associate Justice Wolokolie stated.“They misinterpreted the domestic relationship law, in their Bill of Information filed before the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, on behalf of Allen Brown. Though, similar request was denied by then Justice in Chamber,” she disclosed.  “But, they chose to disrespect the Chamber Justice and filed the bill directly to the Office of the Chief Justice,” she maintained.In furtherance of the High Court’s opinion, Justice Wolokolie ordered that “The request for the Bill of Information is hereby denied and the ruling of the Civil Law Court is confirmed.”She continued, “Mr. Brown is hereby ordered to pay US$30,000 to his wife, Mrs. Meata Huge Brown for failure to support her over the years, and also ordered to give her US$1,500 monthly.”In addition, the Associate Justice said, “There is no divorce proceeding between them, neither are they on separation.”In the bill, they were seeking the High Court’s approval to overturn a ruling of the Civil Law Court against their client, Brown.They alleged that the late Cllr.  Emmanuel Kollie, then judge of the Civil Law Court, ruling against their client was in error.Their client Allen Brown was sued by his wife, Mrs. Meata Huge Brown, claiming non-persistence support.In her lawsuit, Mrs. Brown further alleged that she and her husband were still married, but he chose to deny her access to their properties.It was based on that, she complained to the court to compel her husband to give her little over US$22,000 for her monthly upkeep.However, after carefully listening to the case, Judge Kollie ruled in her favor and ordered Mr. Brown’s lawyers to negotiate with her for a better settlement.Instead, of negotiating with Mrs. Brown as was advised by Judge Kollie, both Dean and Edward advised their client not to do so and filed the bill.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

“Do not allow CSME to be victim of procrastination” – Granger tells Caricom…

first_img28th Inter-Sessional HoG meetingThe need for greater regional integration was emphasised at the opening of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Inter-Sessional Meeting held in Guyana on Thursday, where regional leaders pushed the Caribbean Single Market and Economy (CSME) agenda.Caricom Chairman, President David Granger, delivering his address at the opening of the 28th Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of GovernmentDuring the two-day confab, focus will be placed on the broad areas of economic development, crime and security and international relations.In his address to the Caricom Heads, incumbent Chairman President David Granger underscored the need to expedite the full implementation of the CSME in order for the Caribbean to escape the economic downfall in today’s global environment.“The CSME has the potential to enhance Private Sector growth and competitiveness by providing access to a larger pool of resources, facilitating the movement of human capital, catalysing the establishment of regional businesses and encouraging the free movement of goods. The CSME must not be allowed to become a victim of equivocation and procrastination,” the Guyanese Leader noted.He added that the region faces threats that include dampened demand for its goods and services and distortions in its financial sectors caused as a result of de-risking by international banks.On the other hand, President Granger asserted that with regional security an essential pillar of Caricom, there needs to be an integrated approach to tackling issues that threaten the security of the Region.Caricom Heads and members of various delegations gathered at the 28th Inter-sessional Meeting“The Caribbean – a maritime corridor between two continents – is vulnerable to narcotics trafficking and human trafficking, gun running, terrorism and penetration by international criminal cartels. Transnational criminal threats demand multinational functional cooperation,” he outlined. We must continuously strengthen our security architecture in order to assure citizens and investors of greater security and stability,” he outlined.The Head of State also went on to urge the Member States to be vigilant in the face of continuing threats to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Region.Moreover with functional cooperation an elemental pillar of Caricom, the Guyanese Head of State pushed for greater cooperation among Member States in promoting food and energy security in the Region.Food securityTo this end, he posited that the Region has the capability to meet its food needs, noting that the Community’s three mainland States – Guyana, Belize and Suriname – are, together, bigger than developed countries such as Germany and Japan.The President added that food security will not only ensure health and nutritional benefits for the Caribbean but at the same time also earn foreign exchange and eliminate the bloated bill for food importation.“Ensuring regional food security is a cross-sectoral task involving cooperation in agriculture, finance, health and nutrition and infrastructure, among other sectors… Food security can be advanced by the fuller utilisation of our lands for large-scale investment in agriculture and agro-processing and by dismantling barriers to regional trade in agricultural products,” he asserted.Furthermore, President Granger also called on his fellow Caricom Heads of State to intensity efforts at regional energy security.“We have the means to do so since we are blessed with abundant sources of renewable energy. The Community has done considerable, commendable work towards ensuring energy security which can ease the Community’s energy sector off of its addiction to fossil fuel and encourage the adoption of renewable sources of energy,” he remarked.Also delivering remarks at the opening of the two-day confab, General Secretary of Caricom, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque also posited that a sustained economic development requires a cohesive response by working collectively and pooling resources.In this regard, he noted that with CSME already having been established as the “best vehicle” to drive sustainable economic growth and development, there is much more to be done despite the progress made in promoting the initiative within the Region.“With all that is before us, it is relevant and timely for this meeting to consider a comprehensive review of the CSME, as agreed to last July. Ideally, a review of the CSME must not only be about what has been done, or not done, and what might have been the constraining factors; it should also be about the impact and how it has measured up to intent and expectations, and therefore how the shortcomings might be addressed,” Ambassador LaRocque stated.IntegrationOn the note of integration, the Secretary General stated that steps are apace to establish a Results Based Management (RBM) system that will measure the tangible results of regional integration mechanisms.Meanwhile, Prime Minister of Dominica, Rooseveldt Skerrit, who handed over the Caricom Chairmanship to Guyana last year, decried the slothfulness of progress particularly in carrying out the mandate of the Heads of Government Meeting.He recalled urging Member States last July to use powers at their disposal to work towards the speedy and effective implementation of matters we have long agreed upon.“Today many of these matters are still pending, as they languish in our Ministerial Councils, Committees, Commissions and Working Groups. Whether this is due to them being inquorate or Member States asking for time to consult, or even officials not being adequately prepared, the effect is the same – a hindrance to progress,” the outgoing Chairman opined.He further noted that it will be no surprise if, during deliberations, there is further evidence of the need for a greater effort by all to complete the tasks set by the Heads of Government.“We are dealing with matters that strike at the heart of both the concerns of our Community and the strengthening of our integration movement. Indeed these matters are also of great significance to all our countries domestically,” Prime Minister Skerrit added, while pointing out to his colleague Heads that as Leaders, they have a responsibility to ensure that those who have been tasked with fulfilling regional mandates participate fully in the relevant discussions.last_img read more

Communities Ministry lacks legal authority to manage LGC’s finances – former AG

first_imgBlow to democracy The Communities Ministry has no legal authority to manage any financial affairs of the Local Government Commission, judging from the Local Government Commission Act which provides for the agency to manage its own finances once approved by the National Assembly.This was the position shared by former Attorney General and Attorney-at-law Anil Nandlall after senior officials from the Commission informed that payments for salaries and other dues were delayed after Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Emil McGarrell refused to countersign pertinent documents.Nandlall said on his social media page that such efforts are regarded as a “naked interference” in the operations of the constitutional body.“This Commission, by the express language of the Local Government Commission Act, is empowered to manage its own finances as approved by the National Assembly. The Ministry of Local Government has no legal authority whatsoever to manage or exercise any supervisory role over the financial affairs of this Commission. Any attempt to do so constitutes a naked interference with the functioning of an independent constitutional Commission.”Communities Minister Ronald BulkanHe mentioned that the refusal to release money to the LGC is considered another manifestation of authoritarianism on the part of the coalition Government.“The democratic tapestry of Guyana’s constitutional democracy is quickly being unravelled by the brazen authoritarianism being displayed by this Government. The refusal to release money to the Local Government Commission is but yet another manifestation of this authoritarianism,” Nandlall stated.According to the attorney, the Commission was created in accordance with Article 78A of Guyana’s Constitution and the Local Government Commission Act. One of the main functions was to ensure that the Communities Minister act within his capacities. However, a move to cash-starve the constitutional body could mean that the agency may lose its capacity to operate independently.“An examination of both the genesis and the nature of the functional responsibilities of this Commission drives one to the inescapable conclusion that it is an independent Body that is statutorily and constitutionally autonomous. Its fiscal autonomy is obviously an indispensable component of its overarching independence. One of its functions is to ensure that the Minister with responsibility for Local Government does not exceed or abuse his authority and mandate. If this Commission becomes beholden to this Ministry for its financial sustenance, then it loses its independence absolutely,” the attorney asserted.Chairman of the Commission, Mortimer Mingo and other Commissioners told media operatives on Friday that it has been two months since salaries and utilities were paid, resulting in the disconnection of their cellular services.He used the platform to state that the agency has exhausted all avenues to address the matter. According to him, the Commission submitted a budget on December 14, 2018, which was later approved by Parliament.However, when the expense record was submitted on January 14, 2019, the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Emil McGarell, said that the 2019 budget for salaries was not in agreement with that of public service workers, hence he would not sign-off for payments.As such, the LGC opted to settle the matter through a meeting with McGarell on January 28 but the Permanent Secretary did not withdraw his decision of not signing the documents.He stressed that these salaries were effective since last July and no objections were made by the Finance Ministry prior to this letter.Letter to PresidentTheir last resort is to wait for President David Ganger to intervene since he was in receipt of a letter which highlighted the problem. The Chairman said that they are waiting for a few days to see what will be done.“We have written to the Head of State seeking his intervention. He would have responded to us and we are going to see what level of intervention he would have made over the next couple of days,” Mingo said.Commissioner Clement Corlette had clearly stated that this act is viewed as a way of stymieing the operations of the organisation. He raised the idea that the Commission was eliminating anomalies at local organs and this did not do well with the Ministry“We have been making prudent intervention into correcting the anomalies where it exist in the local Government system. That Ministry that was first tasked with that responsibility apparently is not too happy with the progress we’re making so they set out to stymie it,” Corlette ascertained.last_img read more
