Tears of joy welled up when she reached the halfway mark — then flowed at the finish line.Even on the happiest days, Balthazar is aware of the inseparable sadness, often thinking of Henze’s family.She’d love to meet his mother, “to hug her and thank her,” Balthazar said, mindful however that this might be too upsetting for his relatives.While she celebrates daily victories, “on the other side there is an entire family crying,” Balthazar said.So she does her best — for herself and for her silent partner.“The two of us are here,” Balthazar said.After the race, she embraced her own elderly mother, her daughter and grandchildren, before posing for photos with the race medal around her neck.

first_img(L-r) House Speaker Dr. Bhofal Chambers, Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor, Hon Moustapha CISSE LO, Speaker ECOWAS Parliament, former President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Prince Y JOHNSON, 3rd Deputy Speaker ECOWAS ParliamentSupports ECOWAS Regional Radio Be Headquartered in Liberia The 15 member states of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has been encouraged to develop a National Cybersecurity Strategy as well as make laws to fight cyber-crimes in all ECOWAS member states, to facilitate the creation of a safer cyber environment in West Africa.Members of the Joint Committee on Communications and Information Technology/Education, Science and Technology/Labour, Employment, Sport and Culture of the ECOWAS Parliament unanimously voted to adopt it in their report, which will be subsequently submitted to the full Plenary of ECOWAS Parliament of the Fourth Legislature.During  five days of  presentations, discussions and debates at the Delocalized Meeting, which was held at a local resort in Monrovia from Monday – Friday, August 27-31, 2018, Lawmakers (MPS)  were encouraged to assist their various governments to put in place national cybersecurity strategies such as CERT/CIRT.(Computer Emergency Response Teams).According to Joint Committee’s reports, about 70% of cybercrimes in Africa has to do with social network, and there is a need for an aggressive sensitization campaign or law for the safe use of social media.The report also said Cybercrimes affects bank cards, if not securely used, and to attain a real and efficient Digital Single Market in West Africa there is need for a secure cyber environment in the region.“The cybersecurity in the region is hampered by lack of appropriate legislation and national cybersecurity strategies. There is a desperate need for capacity building and the establishing of CERT/CIRT. Towards this end the Community has developed and adopted some Acts to promote a safer cyber environment within ECOWAS. And these include Directive on Fighting against Cybercrime; Supplementary Act on Electronic Transactions; and Supplementary Act on Personal Data Protection,” the report said.Also, members of the Joint Committee has also voted from part of their report urging the effective implementation and elimination of roaming charges in ECOWAS member countries and furthered abolished termination charges being levied by some countries in the region.The lawmakers (MPS) argued that in the Regional Roaming, a regulation was approved in December 2017 in Abuja by the Council of Ministers, which eliminates roaming charges between ECOWAS countries.“A citizen traveling from one ECOWAS country to the other should receive phone calls as if he/she was in his/her home country, without the need of paying any roaming charges. This regulation must now move to the implementation stage,” the lawmakers (MPS) argued.The five-day meeting was held under the theme: “Contribution of ICTs to the Regional Integration Process – Status of Implementation, challenges and prospects of an ECOWAS Community Radio and Television Station”.Furthermore, the Joint Committee said ICT and radio and television broadcasting is a useful and valuable tool and medium for not only the efficient work of our institutions in ECOWAS, but as instruments for furtherance of the vision, mission, and actions and programmes of integrating the countries, economies and peoples into a peaceful, secure and democratic region, with entrenched values of good governance, rule of law and human rights in our region.“In the same vein the Joint Committee acknowledged and recognized that the UNMIL Radio that was transferred to ECOWAS control by the United Nations Peace Keeping Mission in Liberia is a very useful and valuable asset. This notwithstanding they appreciate that there are currently teething challenges to get it up and running efficiently as a Regional Station, which is far more complicated and demanding than its original mandate. This is understandable since the station is in a transition phase; what is required now is for proper planning to put the proper statutes, structures and implementation strategies in place in order to enable it fulfill its great potentials. This, they emphasized, requires the involvement of all stakeholders, including the Parliamentarians,” the report of the Joint Committee said.The Joint Committtee further proposed the following specific and general recommendations for the various stakeholders and institutions of ECOWAS on ICT and the ECOWAS Regional Radio.“ECOWAS COMMISSION:   should facilitate a more affordable access of landlocked countries to submarine fiber optic cables through a full implementation of the regulation on conditions for landlocked countries to access national and international bandwidth; mobilize the necessary resources for the implementation of Amilcar Cabral Fiber Optic Cables so that all ECOWAS Member States can be connected through the regional fiber optic network;  promote the establishment of Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERT) in all ECOWAS Member States to facilitate the creation of a safer cyber environment in West Africa, among others.”“ECOWAS PARLIAMENT: should partner with the ECOWAS Commission in all the phases of the development and implementation of the ICT policies and programmes. This is to include engagement with potential  partners for collaboration to develop the use of ICT by ECOWAS and its Institution in furtherance of the regional integration; fully participate in the forthcoming expert meetings and Council of Ministers meeting on the ECOWAS Regional Radio project. MPs and ECOWAS Parliament to be in the governing board of the regional radio; as representatives of the people, their presence can ensure the station focuses on programmes and activities that directly benefit the people and bring the benefits of integration to their door steps; the leadership of the ECOWAS Parliament must use its relationship and contacts with some of the Heads of States to solicit support and assistance for the Radio. The urgent requirement of the station is to be connected to the national electricity grid in Liberia to reduce its dependence on use of generators and gas oil and the leadership of the Parliament to asked for this support from their colleague brother HE President George MANNEH WEAH.After the votes and adoptions from at least 20 members of the Joint Committee, the report signed Hon. Nassirou HALIDOU (Chairperson Committee on  Education, Science and Technology); Hon. Martina Moreira Moniz ( Chairperson on Communication and and Information Technology).Others were Hon. Hon.

first_imgPolice Commander in A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara), Leslie James on Thursday afternoon confirmed that Police are in the process of wrapping up investigations regarding Otis “Otisha” Pearson who has been accused of paedophilia.When probed as to whether an extension will be requested to keep Pearson in custody, since the 72-hour period for his detainment will expire on Friday, James noted that he could not make a pronouncement on the matter at that point.Otis “Otisha” PearsonNevertheless, he noted that if needs be, the extension will be sought.Guyana Times had previously reported that Pearson was arrested on March 6, 2018, on allegations that he was involved with under-aged boys.“We received the file from the Child Care and Protection Agency and we are now investigating the matter officially,” James had told this publication.At that time, he could not ascertain how soon charges would be instituted against the popular member of the LGBT community.The Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) back in February closed its investigation into the alleged misconduct by Pearson.According to CC&PA’s Director, Ann Green, the Agency has gathered statements from a number of persons, including the young man at the middle of the controversy, and as such, it is expected to move ahead with the case.The public became enraged when Pearson was heard in an interview reporting that “he has a little boy for every day of the week”.However, after he was bashed on social media, the transgender personality quickly defended himself, explaining that the term “little boys” was taken out of context. He attempted to cover up his transgressions, stating that the term is actually referring to persons above the legal age of consent and is also used when referring to his colleagues.The statement quickly became a serious matter when a photo of Pearson hugging a teen was leaked on social media site Facebook.Many users of the site were of the opinion that the teen was underage; the age of consent in Guyana being 16.Investigations revealed that the boy was indeed below the age of 16 and was being bullied after the photos were leaked.last_img read more

first_imgThree former Police ranks were on Monday sentenced to terms of imprisonment and fined for accepting a six-million-dollar bribe back in September 2015.When the trial concluded on Monday at the Whim Magistrate’s Court on the Corentyne, Magistrate Charlyn Artiga found the three ranks guilty, and sentenced each to one year’s imprisonment and fined each $25,000.Corporal Shawn McPhoy of 174 Laing Avenue, West Ruimveldt, Constable Ray Drepaul Saul of Eversham, Corentyne, and Constable Trevon McKenzie of Princeton, Corriverton, Corentyne were charged jointly for the offence, which was committed between September 10 and 11, 2015.Assistant Superintendent Terrence Browne, 48, who was the officer-in-charge of the Whim Police Station at the time the incident was committed, had also been charged with the offence, but was tried separately.In September 2016, Magistrate Artiga ruled that the prosecution had failed to convince the court that the Assistant Superintendent is the person who had received the plastic bag, and that anyone had seen him. He was set free.The three former ranks had collected a $6 million bribe and had allegedly relinquished some of the cash to Browne. Female Constable Stacy Welch had testified during the trial that she had received a share of the money when it was parted. She further stated that McPhoy had placed a portion of the money into a plastic bag and had said it was for the boss.On September 10, 2015, a few Police ranks were performing patrol duties along the Corentyne Corridor when they stopped a minibus which was loaded with cocaine and cash.The ranks had received information that a route 63 ‘A’ minibus would usually be transporting drugs, guns and cash. They were provided with the vehicle number and the travel schedule for the minibus.While in the vicinity of Springlands, East Berbice/Corentyne, they observed the vehicle and decided to stop it to conduct a search, during which they discovered that the vehicle was indeed transporting a very large quantity of cocaine and cash at the time.It is alleged that the ranks on patrol, with the most senior one at the time being a corporal, entered into negotiation with the occupants of the vehicle, which led to the occupants of the vehicle handing over $6 million in cash to the ranks. The ranks then allowed the vehicle to continue its journey, and even provided some amount of escort for the vehicle before returning to a Police Station.The ranks reportedly informed their most senior officer of the illegal transaction, after which he allegedly took a sum of the money.It had been reported that the cash was actually borrowed from a businessman who resides in Republic Park.The trio was represented by Attorneys at law Chandra Sohan, Murseline Bacchus and Horatio Edmonson.Following a notice of appeal issued to the Magistrate on Monday, she placed the convicted cops on $50,000 bail each.last_img read more

first_imgManchester United appeared to have been dealt another injury blow after midfielder Daley Blind suffered suspected torn knee ligaments during Netherlands’ Euro 2016 clash with Latvia on Sunday night.The defensive midfielder hobbled out of the game in Amsterdam, which the Oranje eventually won 6-0, after 20 minutes following a challenge with Eduards Visnakovs.Following the final whistle, Dutch manager Guus Hiddink confirmed the news and suggested Blind could be facing up to six weeks on the sidelines.“It doesn’t look good,” said the boss.“It is his medial ligament. It could be a strain but also be a tear, so that is a big blow.”United manager Louis van Gaal, who guided the Netherlands to the World Cup semi-finals in the summer before taking up his post at Old Trafford, has been left counting the cost of the international break.England midfielder Michael Carrick was sent home ahead of the qualifier against Slovenia because of a groin problem, while goalkeeper David De Gea dislocated his finger while training with Spain.Blind, who arrived from Ajax for £14million on transfer deadline day, had been deployed as an emergency central defender by Van Gaal following injuries to Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo and the suspension of Chris Smalling.United, who are currently seventh in the Premier League, travel to Arsenal on Saturday.
