The Marcel ‘Fuzzy’ Gayle coached team will look to the likes of skipper Rochane Smith, who is the competition’s joint leading top goal scorer on six goals, the same as Boys’ Town’s Shamar Nicholson. Smith is expected to get support from Dawyne Smith, Andrae Bernal, Anthony Greenland and Kemar Flemmings. Portmore started the season a bit slowly but has picked up momentum and should give UWI a stern test.

Police Implicated in Power Theft?

first_imgJudge Gbeneweleh did not say what will be the fate of the implicated LNP officers.— Nigerian convict’s confession gets him four years imprisonment, but bears all outThe judgement of Judge Peter Gbeneweleh of Criminal Court ‘C’ on Friday, July 19, implicated some officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP) of facilitating power theft, a crime of that is currently being considered for legislation as a second degree felony.It all came about when a Nigerian man, David Lee, who the judge convicted of power theft and subsequently sentenced to four years imprisonment, including the ten months he had already served at the Monrovia Central Prison, earlier revealed how LNP officers repeatedly arrested him but, on each occasion, “I would pay money (undisclosed) amount to the police to release me.”Patrick Sudue, Inspector General, Liberia National PoliceBased on defendant Lee’s self confession to the commission of the crime and the police involvement, Gbeneweleh also ruled that the defendant payback the amount of US$53,000 as payment he received through illegal connections to the Liberia Electricity Corporation’s power grid.In his sentencing judgment, Judge Gbeneweleh informed the parties, the defense lawyers and the government lawyers (prosecution) that police had on previous occasions arrested Lee for power theft.A team of the Energy Monitoring Unit of the Liberian Electricity Corporation (LEC) arrested defendant Lee during their routine patrol on a light pole while he was illegally running a connection around the Center and Benson streets intersection, near the Total Gas Station.Lee operated an illegal distribution point from his bedroom that was used to connect homes to the LEC power grid, and each of his subscribers paid to him an amount of US$40 consistently for four years (2015-2018) before his arrest.Judge Gbeneweleh continued: “The prior history of the defendant as to his conviction has not been established during any police investigation.”He added, “Defendant David Lee has not been convicted in the court of competent jurisdiction for power theft before his arrest, prosecution and conviction by any court.”Gbeneweleh said that he gathered the police involvement into defendant Lee’s criminal activities from a pre-sentencing investigation report that the Probation Services of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) submitted to him.The judge’s implication of the police comes against the backdrop of President George Weah’s condemnation of  power theft, which the President said is taking place in Monrovia and its environs, and wants perpetrators prosecuted, while stressing the frustration Liberians continued to express due to the lack of adequate electricity supply in their homes and on the streets.In a communication to the 54th Legislature in late April, President Weah reminded the august body that power theft damages the country’s economic development, “and is a crime akin to sabotaging the economy, it destroys life and property when dangerous illegal connections are made, sometimes causing fire outbreak.”Besides, the President had submitted for enactment into law a bill to amend the Penal Law, Chapter 15 by adding thereto a new section 15.88 to provide for Power Theft to be considered a crime that sabotages the country’s development.His frustration comes after the Liberia Electricity Corporation claimed that it is losing over US$8 million monthly to power theft.In the Lee power theft case, the prosecution’s indictment claimed that the defendant was arrested with a roll of electric wire, one plier and a huge quantity of wires that he used to connect several private apartments.“David Lee criminally connected to the LEC pole directly from his bed room, and used it as a base to connect other lines to supply power to residents across Benson Street, and covers as far as the OK Dry Cleaning and People’s Building on Benson Street,” the indictment read.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Govt desperate for convictions

first_imgPressure on SOCU, FIU…conviction’s drought can cause slide in AML/CFT standings review – AG In the wake of urgings from Attorney General Basil Williams that law enforcement agencies secure money laundering convictions; it appears that Guyana is desperate for convictions as the country’s standings as an Anti-Money Laundering/Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) compliant country depends on this.At a press conference on Saturday, Williams revealed that Guyana will not exit the fourth round of evaluations by the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) unless convictions can be secured.FATF/CFATF conducts peer reviews of member countries to assess levels of implementation of their AML/CFT recommendations. These mutual evaluations provide in-depth data and analysis of each country’s system for preventing criminal abuse of the financial system.“The fourth round of mutual evaluations requires us to comply with the 40 recommendations and 11 outcomes of the FATF, in terms of technical compliance and effectiveness,” Williams explained. “We will not exit the fourth round if we fail to show the systems are working.”“So, as in other countries that have undergone (evaluations), failure to have a conviction, prosecution, investigations into money laundering results in them swimming and or drowning in the pool that is in the fourth round.”The Attorney General noted that should this happen to Guyana, correspondent banking relations will be jeopardised due to the banks propensity to pull out based on the financial and regulatory climate.SOCU remitSOCU was established in 2014 on the recommendation of the CFATF and was intended to be a Police unit operating under the authority of the Police Commissioner but with a close relationship to the FIU.When Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan had introduced an amendment to the Guyana Police Force’s Standing Order No 62, it had outlined that SOCU’s responsibilities to investigate outside of terrorism and money laundering were: participation in an organised criminal group and racketeering; trafficking in human beings and migrant smuggling; sexual exploitation, including the sexual exploitation of children.It also has to investigate illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances; illicit arms and ammunition trafficking; corruption and bribery; fraud; counterfeiting and piracy of products; environmental crimes; murder; grievous bodily harm; kidnapping, illegal restraint and hostage taking; robbery or theft; smuggling; extortion; forgery; piracy; insider trading and market manipulation; tax evasion and gold smuggling.While SOCU had arrested and questioned several members of the previous Administration, its exploits against money launderers are not as well known.last_img read more
