NDC To Sue Korkoya

first_imgNDC Political Leader Kargbo: “The longer Cllr. Korkoya serves as Chair of NEC in the face of the scandal, President Sirleaf will be obliged to account for every mess created in the Commission by the man with dubious standing…” – Advertisement – The National Democratic Coalition (NDC) has threatened to take Cllr. Jerome George Korkoya, National Elections Commission (NEC) Chair, to court for lying under oath.NDC told a news conference over the weekend that it has ‘prima facie’ evidence that the NEC Chairman is a naturalized citizen of the United States of America, which if proven, would show that the NEC Chairman violated the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia.Prima facie evidence is a fact presumed to be true unless it is disproved.At a press conference in Monrovia last Saturday, the political leader of the NDC, Nyanquoi K. Kargbo, said the party has written a letter to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf asking her to dismiss Cllr. Korkoya as chairman of the NEC.“Our letter further emphasized to Madam President that to have a foreign citizen knowingly and openly preside over our national elections without the political will to take the appropriate action required under our law is an insult to our statehood and hard-earned democracy as a people.“It also shows gross disregard for the laws of the land which all public officials (elected and appointed) took oath to uphold, defend and protect, including President Sirleaf, as head of state and government,” Kargbo said.The NDC claims it has “empirically established” that Jerome George Korkoya is an American citizen, and holds an American passport issued by the Department of State on March 18, 2010, with the expiration date of March 17, 2020.NDC alleges that “his passport bears the number 4670780024 and his date of birth: December 24, 1961. While holding an American passport as an American citizen, Cllr. Korkoya simultaneously criminally acquired an ECOWAS Liberian Diplomatic Passport bearing the number D 001573 issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on May 27, 2013, which expired May 26, 2015, NDC further alleges. His date of birth (is) December 24, 1961 (as) in the US Passport; and his height, 5.7 inches.”Kargbo alleges that Cllr. Korkoya fraudulently used his diplomatic passport in transit countries between the United States and Liberia. Additionally, as an American citizen, records show that Korkoya voted in the 2008 US elections as a registered Democrat with a residential address at 195 Stueben St. 60, Staten Island, 10304, quoting a report published last week by the Daily Observer newspaper.The NDC claims Cllr. Korkoya acquired American citizenship by naturalization through the pledge of an ‘oath of allegiance’ to a foreign state; and in so doing, “he correspondingly renounced his original citizenship by birth as a Liberian.”“Accordingly, a foreign citizen masquerading as a Liberian, who took an oath to become NEC’s National Chairman, Cllr. Korkoya falsified Liberian citizenship, lied under oath and violated other laws of the land,” NDC alleges.The NDC leader said dual citizenship is not only illegal, but legally impermissible within the Republic of Liberia, and quoted Section 22.1 of the Aliens and Nationality Law of Liberia, Title 4, Liberian Code of Laws Revised (Approved May 15, 1974), to prove his point.Mr. Kargbo said as long as Cllr. Korkoya serves as chairman of NEC in the face of the scandal, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf will be obliged to account for “every mess created in the Commission by the man with dubious standing whom she appointed as Chair of NEC to serve in her administration.”The NDC quoted Chapter 11, Section 2.3 of the New Elections Law of Liberia amended by the National Legislature in 2003 and 2004 respectively and incorporated and published in 2011 by the National Elections Commission that forbids the appointment of non-Liberian citizens to serve on the Commission.Moreover, the NDC claims Chairman Korkoya has violated 1.3.6 of the National Code of Conduct, bordering on “Conflict of Interest.”“Conflict of interest is established against a public official when dubiousness is linked to his/her deeds; in this case, citizenship. Other laws violated include, sections 12.30 and 12.31 of the Penal Code of Liberia, representing acts of perjury (lying under oath) and misinformation, respectively.“He has also violated other provisions of the Alien and National Law and the Penal Code of Liberia, including citizenship falsification and criminal impersonation. Above all, Cllr. Korkoya has also violated the Constitution of the Republic of Liberia. By these violations, Cllr. Korkoya as Chairman of NEC, has illegally managed strategic state resources and information, and has generally duped the Government and State of Liberia,” the NDC contends.The NDC said it will pursue its actions “in a set of two-prong political and legal initiatives” in Liberia and in the United States to ensure that Cllr. Korkoya is dismissed as chairman of the NEC.“We also brought to the attention of President Sirleaf that the 2017 Presidential and Legislative Elections are very crucial to a peaceful and orderly transfer of power from one constitutional administration to the other; that the processes and outcomes of the impending elections, as a matter of urgency, as stated supra, must therefore be politically, morally and legally credible and legitimate. This certainly cannot be achieved by a man who lied under oath and lacks integrity,” the NDC said.The NDC said copies of its letter to the President were, in accordance with good practice, sent to Cllr. Korkoya and other Commissioners of the NEC, but that the letters were not signed for.Cllr. Korkoya, since information about his alleged dual citizenship was published, has insisted that he is a Liberian citizen, and has described reports of his holding dual passports as a smear campaign by his detractors.  He consistently challenged anyone with such claims to take him to court to allow him prove his innocence.He has, meanwhile, remained mum on whether he has ever owned a US passport, making him a U.S. Citizen.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

What a line-up! Remembering the last Juventus team to win the Champions League

first_img1 Juventus are Italy’s most successful team domestically, but when it comes to the European Cup/Champions League, they are lacking in medals.The club are closing in on their ninth appearance in the final, but have been successful on just two occasions, while in Serie A they have been crowned champions 32 times.By comparison, AC Milan have won 18 Italian titles but can boast seven European Cups, while Inter have won the continent’s premier prize three times.Juve first won the trophy in 1985 when they beat Liverpool, though that victory was tragically overshadowed by the Heysel Stadium disaster, in which 39 fans lost their lives. The Old Lady had already lost the 1973 and ’83 finals to Ajax and Hamburg respectively, and Juventus fans had to wait until 1996 to see the team win the competition again.In that Rome final, holders Ajax were beaten on penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time, following goals from Fabrizio Ravanelli and Jari Litmanen.“We have waited a long time [to win the European Cup again],” former Juve forward Roberto Bettega said following that success. “We never really considered 1985 as a victory because of Heysel.”Along the way to that success, Juventus beat Spanish champions Real Madrid, French champions Nantes as well as the champions of Germany (Dortmund), Scotland (Rangers) and Romania (Steaua) in the group stage. Since victory in 1996, though, the Bianconeri have lost finals in 1997, 1998, 2003 and 2015.Could 2017 be their year? The last Juventus side to win the Champions League – better than the current crop? last_img read more

Strawberry Festival just one of Donegal’s new Food Coast Experiences

first_imgDonegal’s growing reputation as a fantastic destination for food has been enhanced significantly this summer with an exciting range of food-related events as part of the Donegal Food Coast Experiences.The Castlegrove Strawberry Festival at Castlegrove House in Letterkenny this Saturday July 1st is just one of many events planned and will include a tour of the walled garden, harvesting home grown strawberries, music, barbeque and a live cookery demonstration celebrating the strawberry.  The Food Coast Experiences was brought to life earlier this year by Local Enterprise Office, Donegal through the Food Coast Initiative as another exciting new phase in the county’s evolving food story.Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney, explained that the Local Enterprise Office had completed a review of the Donegal Food Strategy in 2016 and a key output of this review was to develop a food series for Donegal.Michael Tunney“Our aim was to develop a calendar of food events that offers an experience celebrating Donegal food and its champions. When we commenced the project we had a gathering of interested food parties who heard from other regions where successful visitor experiences have been built around local food.“That meeting really set the ball rolling and helped people here really understand how we in Donegal can collaborate to make Donegal famous for food,” he said. Mr. Tunney added that the vision of The Donegal Food Strategy is to collectively work together to make Donegal famous for food and to make the county recognised as a pioneering region for its approach to fostering and growing new start-up and existing food businesses.“Donegal’s Good Food Initiative aims to grow, support, promote and facilitate the food and drink producers and manufacturers of the region; the retailers supplying local produce and the hospitality outlets working with locally sourced ingredients.The success of Kieran Duey Doherty at the World Chowder Festival in Rhode Island recently, has enhanced the county’s reputation globally and the diverse food events across the county this year will offer an amazing array of food options for visitors and locals alike.”A delighted Kieran ‘Duey’ Doherty who proudly flew the flag for Donegal and Ireland at the World Chowder Cook-Off in Newport, Rhode Island and led his team to an amazing victory to see them crowned World Chowder Champions.When the food series for Donegal was launched earlier this year Failte Ireland’s Sinead Hennessy told food industry professionals that while tourists don’t necessarily come to Ireland for its food, it is a key part of their experience and they spend €2 billion on food every year with 35% of their total spend going on food.Michael Tunney said that the Local Enterprise Office had tried to impress on Donegal’s producers and food outlets that offering a wide range of food offerings will help the county secure a greater share of that tourism food spend – adding that the tourists can just as equally be locals and visitors from within the county as those from outside Donegal.Events across Donegal this summer range from this weekend’s strawberry festival to a beer and whiskey festival, guided food tours, food festivals, a Donegal Chowder cook-off and more. Fresh strawberries from the Walled Garden at Castle Grove Country House Hotel ready for the festival“We have been delighted by the range and diversity of ideas this year and we are sure that we will build on that to make it even better next year. The stakeholders have really grasped the opportunity to add to the Donegal food story and really expand on the potential it has for all involved,” Mr. Tunney concluded.Anyone wishing to find out more about this weekend’s event at CastleGrove House or wishing to book should  contact reservations@castlegrovehouse.com or call 074-9151118.Strawberry Festival just one of Donegal’s new Food Coast Experiences was last modified: June 29th, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:castle grove country house hotelDonegal Food Coast Experiencesdonegal Food StrategyMichael Tunneystrawberry festivallast_img read more

Kruger Park booked out for 2010

first_imgVisitors to the Kruger Park can expect to see a range of wildlife offered by no other African game reserve. (Image: South African Tourism) The mighty baobab tree is found in abundance in the Kruger Park. (Image: Wikimedia) Janine ErasmusSouth Africa’s world-famous Kruger National Park is fully booked for the duration of the 2010 Fifa World Cup. All accommodation in the main camps was snapped up a mere two hours after the reservations office opened on 1 July.South African National Parks (SANParks) reports that even though booking for July had opened a month earlier than usual, visitors were alert to the fact and wasted no time.Normally booking opens 11 months in advance for one month at a time, but with the World Cup on the horizon SANParks decided to give their visitors the chance to book for both June and July simultaneously.This was a one-off scheme. Reservations for August 2010 will revert to the usual procedure.The national parks authority also noted that accommodation for the same period in its other parks around the country was filling up rapidly.Many parks, such as the Golden Gate Highlands National Park in the Free State’s Maluti Mountains and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park which sits on the South Africa-Botswana border, are particularly popular as winter getaways.2010 accommodationSANParks has partnered with Fifa-appointed professional hospitality company Match to manage accommodation in the Kruger and other parks.The Kruger Park’s closest major city, Nelspruit, is a 2010 venue, with the city’s Mbombela Stadium scheduled for completion in October 2009.The Skukuza, Berg en Dal and Pretoriuskop camps in the southern Kruger Park have been reserved solely for 2010 visitors through the Match affiliation. This equates to 30% of the park’s total accommodation capacity.These and other camps in the park’s southern bounds are now fully booked, but there is still limited availability in certain camps in the far north.A recent report from SANParks reveals that as many as 15 000 new people could be introduced to conservation areas during the World Cup. This is viewed as an outstanding marketing opportunity, as people will share their experiences and word of mouth is a powerful way of spreading the message.Besides the Kruger Park, SANParks and Match have agreed to the 30% deal for 11 other national parks. These are the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Augrabies Falls National Park, Golden Gate Highlands National Park, Tsitsikamma National Park, Addo Elephant National Park, Mapungubwe National Park, Mokala National Park, Mountain Zebra National Park, Bontebok National Park, Karoo National Park and Wilderness National Park.Available accommodation in these parks is also disappearing fast. Kgalagadi’s main camps are said to be fully booked and the smaller camps are almost full. The same can be said of the Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape.Visitors who would like to spend some time in these magnificent wild areas of South Africa during the World Cup are encouraged to visit the SANParks website without delay.Winter holiday rushThe Kruger National Park accommodates every taste, from those who prefer to rough it in tents, to lodges of unrivalled luxury. There are 21 rest camps to choose from, several of which have satellite camps. A number of private lodges also operate within the park.SANParks tourism and marketing director Glenn Phillips said that although a rush had been expected, the Kruger Park’s main camps were fully booked before they even noticed, as staff were kept busy handling the roughly 5 000 calls and 500 emails that poured in.The winter school holidays also fall within the mid-year period. Next year the holidays run from June 9 to July 13 and have been extended by about a week to cover the entire period of the World Cup.“We value our local visitors and even though we will be accommodating the soccer tourists next year, we are glad to also be able to provide for our local clients during the school holiday next year,” said Phillips, adding that he was glad to see South Africans booking their 2010 holiday accommodation in good time.Wildlife havenThe Kruger Park is one of South Africa’s most important tourism drawcards. The country’s biggest game reserve covers almost 20 000km2, or an area a little bigger than that of the entire nation of Israel.It is a part of the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, a peace park that spans the Kruger Park, Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park, and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique.It is also a part of one of South Africa’s six biosphere reserves. In September 2001 the Kruger to Canyons was designated by the United Nations Education and Scientific Organisation as an International Man and Biosphere Reserve.An abundance of birds, reptiles, animals and plants thrives in the park’s six eco-systems. There is something of interest for every nature lover – about 1 980 species of plants, 336 species of tree, 49 fish, 34 amphibians, 517 birds, 147 mammals, and 114 species of reptile, including 3 000 crocodiles, are found here.For wildlife enthusiasts who cannot make it in person, a number of webcams have been set up around the park for convenient armchair game viewing.However, the spectacular wildlife is not the only reason to visit the Kruger Park. Within its borders are over 255 historical and cultural sites, with more yet to be explored. Some of these sites date back to the early Stone Age and are over a million years old. There are also several Iron Age settlements, and a number of spiritually significant sites too.Three historical sites are currently open to the public. They are the ruins of the 19th century Albasini trading post, and the late Iron Age Masorini and Thulamela settlements.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

(AP Photo/Paul Sancya)ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan got Indiana’s best players in foul trouble in the opening minutes and took full advantage, building a cushion it used to stay undefeated.Charles Matthew scored 16 of his 18 points in the first half to help the second-ranked Wolverines build a double-digit lead and they went on to beat the 21st-ranked Hoosiers 74-63 victory Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT Hotel management clarifies SEAG footballers’ kikiam breakfast issue Michigan led 44-29 at halftime and didn’t have much trouble keeping a comfortable cushion after halftime in part because Morgan picked up his third and fourth fouls.“We kind of took them out of their flow,” Poole said.Miller lamented his team getting off to another poor start.“The beginning of the game, we’re not tough enough,” Miller said. “We take a punch, maybe a few too many and then get up off the ground.”Langford agreed.“We’ve been coming back and winning close games,” he said. “Now that’s not going to work for us down the road.”BIG PICTUREIndiana: Langford and Morgan have to learn how to avoid getting into foul trouble because of their value to the team. Both went to the bench with two fouls early in the game and Morgan was limited even more in the second half because he had two more fouls while trying to defend shots from the perimeter, decisions that were costly.“I just have to be smarter,” Morgan said.Indiana will have more depth when center De’Ron Davis, who warmed up Sunday, and guard Rob Phinisee return from injuries. The Hoosiers (12-3, 3-1) had won seven straight since losing at Duke and their chances to extend the streak were hurt because their stars were forced to sit a lot.Indiana’s Juwan Morgan scored 25 points on 9-of-22 shooting and Romero Langford added 17 points while limited by foul trouble.“When those two guys aren’t on the floor, we’re a different team offensively and defensively,” Indiana coach Archie Miller said.When Morgan and Langford went to the bench with two fouls early in the first half, the Wolverines went on a 12-3 run in less than 3 minutes before the pair returned to the floor.“We set the tone and we got their two big guys in foul trouble,” Michigan coach John Beilein said. “They’re tremendous. They’re really tough to stop and they both sat about 20 minutes.”ADVERTISEMENT Nick Foles leads Eagles in upset of Bears Michigan’s Jordan Poole finished with 18 points, Zavier Simpson scored 12 and freshman reserve Brandon Johns had eight points and eight rebounds.The Wolverines (15-0, 4-0 Big Ten) are a win away from matching their best start in school history.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“We’re just worried about getting better,” Poole said. “We rarely talk about our record.”Michigan joined No. 8 Michigan State as the two teams without a Big Ten loss four games into the 20-game conference schedule.

Johns may have earned more playing time. He had to play because Livers was out and center Jon Teske and his backup, Austin Davis, were in foul trouble while trying to defend Morgan. Johns made the most of the opportunity with season highs in points, rebounds and minutes (13) and hurt the Hoosiers’ comeback hopes.“There’s an argument for him to be the first big man off the bench after the way he played,” Beilein said.HE SAID ITThe 6-foot Simpson made some running hook shots, scoring in a way undersized guards have to near the lane, according to Beilein.“Kareem (Abdul-Jabbar) would be proud,” Beilein said.UP NEXTIndiana: Plays at Maryland (12-3, 3-1) on Friday.Michigan: Plays at Illinois (4-11, 0-4) on Thursday.
