No-confidence motion cases…AG says Appeal Court ruling means “business as usual”With the National Assembly scheduled to meet on Friday, legal counsel for former Alliance for Change (AFC) parliamentarian Charrandas Persaud has warned that he will file legal action to bar the holding of the parliamentary sitting if the sitting is not postponed.Attorney-at-Law Sanjeev DatadinThis was announced during a pre-trial hearing at the Caribbean Court of Justice on Wednesday in the case of Christopher Ram vs the Attorney General and Opposition. This is one of three no-confidence motion related cases that will be heard by the CCJ next month.Issuing this warning was Attorney-at-Law Sanjeev Datadin, who is Charrandas Persaud’s legal representative.“We’ve learnt from the press that there’s a sitting of Parliament on [Friday]. And the schedule is to pass legislation related to finance and more importantly, to pass legislation for the oil and gas sector.”“Now having regard for what is before the courts and what are the implications, one way or another, of the vote of December 21, it’s our respectful submission that that should be refrained from. We’ve not made a specific application to the court because we intended to raise it with the court and solicit from the Attorney General an undertaking.”Attorney General Basil WilliamsDatadin warned, however, that if the sitting is not postponed then he will file a formal application to force the postponement. CCJ President Adrian Saunders, however, deferred from commenting on Datadin’s announcement unless a formal application is before the courts.Responding to this development on Wednesday, Attorney General Basil Williams did not take too kindly to the attorney’s move. According to Williams, the Appeal Court’s ruling means that it is business as usual unless the CCJ says otherwise.Pre-trialPrior to Datadin’s request, the CCJ had been dealing with case management matters for the case ahead of the actual hearing, set to be held from May 9 to May 10. Justice Saunders had noted that due to varying lengths of written submissions, it was not necessary to give everyone equal time. In view of this, he informed that Douglas Mendes, appearing for the Opposition Leader, would be allotted one hour from 09:00 to 10:00h.He related that Mendes would be followed by Sanjeev Datadin on behalf of Charrandas Persaud. This will be followed by Kamal Ramkarran on behalf of Christopher Ram, bringing the session to 11:00h.Saunders noted that after a 15-minute break, Eamon Courtenay would be given an hour to make his case, followed by lunch at 12:15h. Afterwards, counsel for Herbert Reid and Minister of State Joseph Harmon would be granted half an hour each.“The written submissions that have been submitted [are] full and detailed, and there really is little need for extensive oral advocacy. We proposed that, because these are consolidated matters, that counsels for Mr Jagdeo; Mr Persaud and Mr Ram will follow each other in that order. Their submissions would be followed by counsels for the Attorney General; Mr Reid and for Mr Harmon,” Saunders informed the court.“The Attorney General has submitted a cross-appeal so what we would [do] is that when counsel for Messer Jagdeo; Mr Charrandas Persaud, and Mr Ram, when they make their submissions, they will address the matters on the cross-appeal as well as the matters which constitute their own appeals.”The three cases deal with Christopher Ram vs the Attorney General of Guyana, the Leader of the Opposition and Joseph Harmon; Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo vs the Attorney General of Guyana, Dr Barton Scotland and Joseph Harmon; and Charrandas Persaud vs Compton Herbert Reid, Dr Barton Scotland, Bharrat Jagdeo and Joseph Harmon; the last of which deals with Persaud’s eligibility to vote in the House.In the case of Ram vs the Attorney General, the political activist had petitioned the High Court to have Government resign and President David Granger call elections within 90 days as stipulated by Articles 106 (6) and (7) of the Constitution.The Court of Appeal had ruled in a 2:1 split decision that a majority of 34 votes would have been needed to validly pass the no-confidence motion brought against the Government last year.While Justice Rishi Persaud had dismissed the appeal and conferred with the ruling of the High Court, his colleague appellate Judges allowed the State’s appeal.Both Justices Yonette Cummings-Edwards and Dawn Gregory opined that while 33 is the majority of the 65-member National Assembly, the successful passage of a no-confidence motion requires an “absolute majority” of 34, and not the “simple” majority of 33 that has been used to pass ordinary business in the House.

Somehow, the trees now all look bigger, fuller than they did before. And in a spirit of gratitude – always appropriate for this time of year – one dog owner made up a large handmade sign to hang on the fence, thanking the port for its provision of the park. The sign is now crowded with “amen” signatures added by dozens of others. So take a few moments this season to enjoy the lights, count your blessings, all of them, big and small, and pass along forgiveness, peace and love – good tidings of great joy. Merry Christmas, San Pedro. On my nightly dog walks through my San Pedro neighborhood, I pass by a few beautiful two-story wonders, all aglow and decked out with lighted reindeer on the lawn. Others are more modest, but so charming in their simplicity. They’re my favorites: a small Spanish stucco, with an understated trim of white icicle lights; the classic California bungalow trimmed with old-fashioned, multicolored lights and the words “Merry Christmas” spelled out in green above the porch. One of the most whimsical decorating efforts that sprang up unexpectedly this Christmas can be seen at the new dog park on Front Street on land provided (at least temporarily) by the Port of Los Angeles. One by one, the spindly saplings planted throughout the park began to be transformed a few weeks ago.

Music lovers are invited to join award-winning cellist Leonard Elschenbroich, one of the most charismatic musicians of his generation, in an evening of masterpieces for solo cello at the Regional Cultural Centre tonight.This young German cellist is to present an intriguing programme of music with which he has a deep affinity and will interweave his playing with anecdotes and stories of personal connections to the pieces.Chosen as a BBC New Generation Artist in 2012, Elschenbroich has won a slew of awards and performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues, including the Albert Hall, the Auditorium du Louvre and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and has also appeared at festivals throughout the world with artists such as Gidon Kremer, the Sitkovetsky Trio and the Piano Trio he formed with Alexei Grynyuk and Nicola Benedetti. This award-winning musician also advocates widening the appeal of classical music to more young people and said artists should play more concerts in schools.Speaking in a recent interview, he said: “Classical music is basically “slower” than the pace of our time in this century. That’s the real problem.“Of course there will have to be innovative programming, concert halls that are less stuffy and less intimidating, concert clothes and advertisement and a public image that fits our time, and all that is changing and is going to be fine. But the basic conflict of pace is a really tough one.“One thing I do is to meet school children before concerts. Almost every time I play a concerto, I talk to a group of children and play for them and let them play my Cello a little. Breaking down the barriers and accustoming children with the material is the foundation. But I really believe that children need to be taught to listen. It was the hardest thing for me when I was little, going to concerts several times a week with my mother.” Lauded for his gorgeous tone and wonderfully expressive playing, he has already been invited to perform with a number of eminent conductors, including Dmitri Kitajenko, Manfred Honeck and Christoph Eschenbach, who praised his “depth, expressivity, charisma and perfection” after a spell-binding duet with Anne-Sophie Mutter.Programme includes: Bach – Suite No. 1 in G major, BWV 1007; Hindemith – Solo Sonata, Op. 25, No. 3; Piatti – 12 Caprices, Op. 25 (No. 7. Maestoso, No. 11. Adagio – Allegro); Tavener – Threnos; Lombardi – Essay 3MY CELLO, MY VOICE WITH LEONARD ELSCHENBROICH, SOLO CELLO,Tickets are still available through RCC box office at 0749120777 WORLD-RENOWNED CELLIST LEONARD ELSCHENBROICH SET TO DAZZLE DONEGAL TONIGHT was last modified: November 28th, 2014 by John2Share 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:Leonard ElschenbroichletterkennyRegional Cultural Centre

I don’t regret anything because it made me stronger. I feel as though I can deal with anything now.

There were rumours that the reason I wasn’t playing [many games] for United was because I slept with [then manager] David Moyes’ daughter, and no one [at the club] attempted to clear that up.“So I was fighting my demons by myself, these rumours that I knew weren’t true. I was dealing with this at 19; living in Manchester by myself, nowhere near anyone else, because the club had a hold over where I lived.“They hadn’t given me a car, like every other player [had]. Nothing. I’m living in this hell by myself, away from my family, and I thought, “If this doesn’t make me stronger, what will?”Despite the lucrative move, Zaha went on to explain how, despite rumours to the contrary, having money is not always a good thing for a footballer.

People think your life’s different because you’ve got money, you’ve got fame, so they don’t treat you the same.”After a failed loan move to Cardiff City in 2014, Zaha rejoined Palace for good in 2015 – making just four appearances for United in two years.Despite moving to England at four, the tricky winger decided to represent his country of birth on the international stage a year later.Although he wanted to represent the Three Lions (feeling especially jealous at seeing the success of the World Cup) Zaha remains adamant he will enjoy far more success with the Ivory Coast. He added: “I did want to play with England because I’ve been here since the age of four, but it reached a point where I thought, ‘What am I waiting for? I want an international career, am I really going to get an opportunity [with England]?’“The Ivory Coast had been begging for ages. The country and the fans love me already, and I haven’t even done anything.“I may not get the red carpet, it may not have the same Nike deals as when you play for England, but I’m going to be playing, I’m going to be loved, and that’s all I want. Nothing else.“So when I watched the World Cup I was annoyed, yeah, because we could have been there.”

A corporal in the Military Police base at Finner Camp has brought a legal challenge to a new hearing requirement for promotion to the position of sergeant in the Military Police.The action, against the Minister for Defence and the Attorney General, has been brought by Cpl Anthony Joseph Finnerty. Cpl Finnerty has been a member of the Defence Forces for more than 25 years.Mr Justice Brian McGovern granted leave to Michael Howard SC, for Cpl Finnerty, to bring the judicial review proceedings. The application for leave was made ex parte (one side represented only).Cpl Finnerty applied for promotion earlier this year but was unsuccessful because of a new rule that people in the rank of sergeant have a hearing grade of level H2 or better (H1 is the highest and H5 the lowest), the judge heard. Cpl Finnerty was assessed as having a hearing grade of H4.The judge granted Cpl Finnerty a temporary injunction restraining the Minister permanently filling any of the positions of sergeant in the Military Police in the 4th Western Brigade pending the determination of the action.FINNER CAMP SOLDIER BRINGS LEGAL CHALLENGE OVER PROMOTION was last modified: June 26th, 2012 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:Cpl Anthony Joseph FinnertyFinner Camp
