‘Tax Court Ruled Based on Procedural Error, Not Case Merit’ – Lonestar

first_imgThe Management of Lonestar Cell MTN says it takes exception to the ruling handed in the US$19.2 million case involving Lonestar Cell MTN and the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA).The Judge of the Tax court, Mozart Chesson, ruled in the case on Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at the Temple of Justice, against Lonestar on procedural error and not the merit of the case, a release from the corporation said. The Board of Tax Appeals had earlier ruled in a decision that Lonestar was obligated to the government for $ 1.8 million plus penalties and not the U$ 19.2 million, the government is claiming. Both Lonestar and the GOL took exception to the initial ruling of the BOTA in 2014.“Lonestar Cell MTN holds strongly that the case was also unfairly adjudicated at the Tax court and therefore deserves an appeal hearing by the Supreme Court. Besides the procedural inadequacies, the pieces of evidence adduced in court by the LRA during the hearing did not merit the ruling as handed by the court,” the company said in a statement released yesterday afternoon.“The Judge’s Decision leaves Legal Scholars pondering especially when the substantive issue in a case is being set aside and ruling made on “procedure error” which was not addressed. Others are asking why an institution once certificated by the government of Liberia as the largest tax payer is being signaled out in a manner that could send mixed messages to financial institutions,” said the statement, signed by Zenu K. Miller, Corporate Communications Officer.Lonestar Cell MTN boasts that its financial dealings remain impeccable and replete with values such as complete accountability and integrity.Meanwhile, Lonestar Cell MTN sees as premature the pronounced victory celebration and media campaign launched by the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) in the wake of an appeal filed at the Supreme Court of Liberia.

New SOCU Head to be officially announced before weekend –Top Cop

first_imgEmbattled Head of SOCU Sydney JamesMore than 24 hours have elapsed since Police Commissioner Leslie James promised to officially announce the replacement for the Head of the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU), Sydney James, but according to the Top Cop, this will be done before the end of the week.“I can assure you that before the weekend a disclosure will be made,” Commissioner James said.The SOCU Head was recently sent on administrative leave amidst allegations of mismanagement of funds at the unit. The decision came months after a special audit had unearthed several instances of mismanagement of funds and falsification of documents at the entity. The audit had also found some unaccounted-for expenditure, which could not be verified by a paper trail.The audit was ordered by the Police Commissioner in February. Although the Top Cop has not commented on the findings of that audit, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan had described the revelations as “damning”.The probe into the operations of the white-collar crime-fighting Unit was triggered after the former British Adviser, Dr Sam Sittlington, had made a number of allegations against the Unit.Following those allegations, James was questioned over allegations of improper spending. This is in light of the ongoing investigation and audit which was conducted after termination of the British Adviser’s services.The Public Security Minister had confirmed that an investigation was ongoing into the matter and he had noted that there were allegations of monies not being spent properly and had said it is now within the jurisdiction of the investigators to understand the spending procedures at SOCU.After being fired amidst a conflict-of-interest scandal, Sittlington had revealed that SOCU had not been operating in the manner in which it should and he had said there are instances of improper spending.The parliamentary Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has maintained that SOCU, which was set up to fight money-laundering and other white-collar crimes, has become a political Unit under the APNU/AFC regime.The PPP had said that Sittlington was going beyond his advisory role and was taking on executive functions. It was pointed out that Sittlington was going on operations such as raids and arrests.Questions were previously raised about the Police investigating James and whether there could be any bias involved; however, the Public Security Minister had assured that the investigation was perfectly normal, and that in addition to the Police’s own internal audits ongoing at SOCU, the Auditor General could come in and take control of the proceedings.He had said the Police auditors were seeking to better understand the systems which had been in place for spending at the agency.Commissioner of Police Leslie Jameslast_img read more

Shocking Musona miss costs Zimbabwe in Uganda draw

first_img0Shares0000Knowledge Musona and Zimbabwe must win their final game if they are to reach the knockout stages © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOCairo, Egypt, Jun 26 – Knowledge Musona’s incredible open-goal miss proved costly as a wasteful Zimbabwe were held to a 1-1 draw by Uganda at the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.Emmanuel Okwi pounced on a rebound to nudge Uganda ahead on 12 minutes in Cairo but Khama Billiat levelled for Zimbabwe with a glancing finish shortly before half-time. Uganda edged closer towards qualification for the last 16 after moving onto four points in Group A, leaving Zimbabwe needing to beat the Democratic Republic of Congo in their final game to stand a chance of squeezing through.Hosts and record seven-time champions Egypt can secure a spot in the knockout rounds later with victory over DR Congo in the second game of the doubleheader.“I’m sure everyone can agree today we played better than we did against Egypt. We created many chances and we failed to put them away, this happens in football,” said Zimbabwe coach Sunday Chidzambwa.“This is not the result we wanted, you could see after the game they (Uganda) celebrated,” added Billiat. “We as strikers let the nation down. We need to step up and take more responsibility.”After winning a Cup of Nations match for the first time in 41 years with Saturday’s 2-0 defeat of DR Congo, Uganda jumped out to a dream start when Okwi bundled home after Abdu Lumala’s low drive was parried by Zimbabwe goalkeeper George Chigova. Zimbabwe, beaten 1-0 by Egypt in the opening game of the tournament, created a number of chances in response, with captain Musona ballooning over after Billiat’s cutback rolled invitingly into his path.Billiat dragged another effort wide and a header from Alec Mudimu was nodded to safety, but the former brought Zimbabwe back into the game when he flicked a low Ovidy Karuru cross into the far corner on 40 minutes.Zimbabwe remarkably failed to grab the lead early in the second half when Musona somehow failed to put the ball into an empty net, spooning against the crossbar from just a couple yards out.The luckless Warriors again found themselves denied in stunning fashion as Uganda ‘keeper Denis Onyango pulled off a miraculous save to scoop off the line and deny substitute Evans Rusike as his shot span towards goal. Patrick Kaddu wasted a glorious chance for Uganda when he blazed over from close range after Chigova palmed out a deflected cross, with Taddeo Lwanga bending just wide for the Cranes late on.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
