– commences hearingsThe much anticipated Family Court has finally commenced operations and is currently hearing cases.The Family Court is located in the compound of the High CourtActing Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Carl Singh, announced on Tuesday in statement that the Family Division of the High Court has been established and began hearing cases since May 6, 2016.It has been almost five years since the Family Court building was completed and handed over to Government. Works were ongoing for over seven years to have the Family Court established and in operation, but this was been constantly delayed over the past years.For almost a year, the delays were blamed on the acquisition of furniture and the hosting of Commissions of Inquiries (CoIs) at the building, located in the compound of the Georgetown Supreme Court, overlooking King Street.Then more recently, revision of the Rules of Law had caused the opening to push back. However, in February, Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams had laid over the completed Rules of Law, which will govern the practices and procedures of the Family Court. The rules were completed a while ago but some “necessary amendments” had to be made.The Chancellor acknowledged the numerous hurdles that had beset the functioning of the facility, noting that the Supreme Court will treat those as lessons learnt.The Family Court will hear and determine all proceedings which touch and concern family matters. The procedure of the Family Court will be governed by the Family (Proceedings and Procedure) Rules 2016 (FPPR).The main applications that could be made to the Court are for divorce, custody and access, division of property, maintenance, guardianship, parentage orders including paternity orders, protection of children, wardship, variation of an existing order and breach of orders. The Court is meant to encourage dispute resolution, including alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, and therefore will facilitate a participatory approach to problem solving so that family disputes can be dealt with justly and expeditiously while ensuring the welfare of family members, especially children.The Family Court will be presided over by two judges. However, the FPPR will be applied by Judges who are assigned to the Berbice and Essequibo jurisdictions of the High Court where the Court shall receive and hear applications at the New Amsterdam and Suddie High Courts respectively.The Court has its own registry for receiving applications in family matters and includes a child friendly space in the form of a Children’s Waiting Room for parties who are required to attend the Court. The well trained staff of this new registry are geared to provide a customer friendly process for persons who attend at the registry and the Court.The Court will work in close liaison with the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA) in matters affecting the welfare of children. In addition, it is expected that parties to family court matters will utilise the Mediation Centre of the High Court.Justice Singh expressed appreciation to the Government of Guyana; the United Nations Children’s Fund; the Government and people of Canada, as well as its diplomatic representatives in Georgetown, for the support readily given to the training of Judges and support staff in the anticipated work of the Family Court.
– gun, cutlass found after labourer shot, robbed– salesman arrested for buying stolen propertyThree young men on Monday evening turned themselves over to Police custody in Berbice after being on the run for two days. The men are prime suspects in Saturday night’s robbery at Albion, Corentyne, during which a labourer was shot.Police had been on the hunt for several persons following the robbery which left hospitalised Jagdeo Ganish, 37, of Lot 117 High Reef Albion, Corentyne.The labourer was injured when a bullet pierced his right arm and became lodged in his abdomen. He was also lashed several times with a cutlass during the attack. Both arms were fractured as a result. The cutlass was also reportedly broken.The incident occurred on Saturday evening at about 20:20h.At the time the six masked bandits invaded the building, five persons were at home. They were all watching television, but the door was open to retrieve a cellular phone which was left outside.Injured: Jagdeo GanishWhen the first bandit entered the home, he told everyone not to move. However, the 22-year-old said they all thought the bandits were friends pulling a prank, until the first gunshot was fired at one of them. It shattered a mirror, but no one was injured.The injured man’s father, Gangapersaud Ganish, told Guyana Times that although there were three men in the house at the time, there was not much that could have been done, as the bandits told them to all lie on the floor. He said he was in a bedroom with his wife, and he secured himself.After having his hands fractured, Ganesh rushed into his bedroom for a cutlass to defend the rest of the family, but the cutlass was not in the bedroom because it had been removed by his brother who was weeding the yard earlier in the day. Reports are that as Ganish was going into the bedroom, two shots were fired at him, but they missed.His father related that when Ganish came out of the bedroom, he wrestled with one of the bandits, who was at the time carrying a cutlass. It is then that he was shot.The men escaped with $321,000 along with US$300 and two cellular phones.As they were fleeing the area, the men ran through a yard and stole a bicycle.The Police quickly responded, and based on information gathered, they went to a location at Topoo, Albion, Corentyne and arrested a 22-year-old suspect in whose possession was a black T-shirt which looks similar to the one used to mask one of the suspect’s face during the robbery.The T-shirt was found in his crotch. The suspect has since admitted to the crime; and also, after being interrogated, gave Police the identities of his accomplices and later led them to an area a short distance from where he was apprehended and showed them where the firearm was. The Police found a .32 revolver with two matching rounds, two bicycles and a cutlass.The arrested suspect has also admitted having committed two recent robberies on the Corentyne.Police also received information which led them to a salesman at Ankerville, Port Mourant, where stolen articles from one of the other two robberies were found. The salesman has been arrested.The Police also found the bicycle which was stolen from a yard after the robbery.Meanwhile, the Police are currently making stringent efforts to quickly arrest the other suspects.
FA Cup giant slayers Middlesbrough rose to within a point of Championship leaders Bournemouth with a 1-0 victory at Brentford.The Bantams started well with James Tarkowski having a header cleared off the line and Stuart Dallas seeing a shot clatter the post.But promotion-pushing Boro, who knocked Manchester City out of the cup last weekend, battled back and secured a vital three points thanks to Grant Leadbitter’s strike on the stroke of half-time.Rivals Derby County also kept pace with the promotion chase, Steve McClaren’s Rams moving level on points with the table-topping Cherries following a 2-0 victory at Cardiff, an own goal from January signing Scott Malone and Chris Martin’s header sealing the points.In one of the day’s early kick-offs, Billy Sharp’s 90th minute header saw Leeds United claim the local bragging rights in their derby clash at Huddersfield.Sam Byram had given the visitors an early lead with a neat finish, though the Terriers equalised before half-time through Harry Bunn’s header from a corner.Sharp came off the substitute bench with three minutes left on the clock and the frontman made an immediate impact, nodding in from Mirco Antenucci’s cross in stoppage-time to allay the Whites’ relegation fears.The game’s finale was made worse for mid-table Town as defender Tommy Smith was stretchered off with an unknown head or neck injury and was later air-lifted to hospital, a helicopter landing on the pitch after fans were quickly ushered out of the stadium.There was no movement at the other end of the table, meanwhile, as Blackpool remain rock-bottom despite Jamie O’Hara’s late free-kick sealing a 1-0 victory over Brighton.Millwall also stay in the relegation zone despite a late 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest, Ricardo Fuller scoring the game’s only goal in the 82nd minute, while Wigan’s clash with Ipswich finished 0-0.Another game to end goalless was Norwich’s trip to Birmingham, though a point sees the Canaries edge closer to the play-off places, Alex Neil’s side sitting three points outside the top six.Wolves also close in on a play-off spot after James Henry’s injury-time screamer sealed a dramatic 2-2 draw at Bolton, while on-loan Chelsea starlet Nathaniel Chalobah was on target for Reading as the Royals beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 at the Madejski.Jordan Rhodes scored his tenth goal of the season as Blackburn held off a late scare from Fulham to see out a 2-1 home victory, while Danny Ward rescued a point for Rotherham, netting a 90th minute equaliser moments after Charlton took a late lead to seal a dramatic 1-1 draw at the Valley.

Local residents take part in the Coravaddy clean-up.Local residents of Drumkeen and the surrounding areas gave up their Sunday morning rest in exchange for a litter pick up and community clean up today.Local county councillor Liam Doherty, who was part of the clean-up team, commended the team for their efforts.He made the comments after he joined a group of local residents this morning to take part in a clean-up operation along the Corravaddy road and forest. “Donegal County Council officials came to the area just over a week ago with some machinery to remove the bulk of the waste which had been illegally and carelessly dumped in the Corravaddy area.”“Following this, I approached the Council’s Litter Warden about the issue who kindly agreed to supply a group of local volunteers with pickers, rubbish bags and high-viz jackets as they too wanted to get involved and help clean up the road here next to the forest.”“I also spread the word that a group of us would be taking part in a litter pick up and members of the local Sinn Féin Cumann agreed to also lend a hand.”“This morning’s clean up went very well, and all together we managed to collect around three tonnes of rubbish. This mainly consisted of litter but we also came across old electronic equipment, TVs, car parts and other items that were tossed out here along the road by fly tippers.” “I must congratulate the local people here who gave of their time this morning to come along and help out as part of the clean-up: they are a credit to their community.”“Also, special thanks must go to the Council and the local litter warden for supplying our group with pickers, bags and bibs so that we could quickly and safely gather up all this discarded waste and litter.”“It’s through working together as a community that our local areas can look their best.”Bagging it and binning it in Coravaddy!LOCALS PRAISED FOR THEIR MASSIVE SUNDAY MORNING CLEAN-UP! was last modified: May 10th, 2015 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:clean-upCllr Liam DohertyCoravaddyDrumkeen
Creevy Co-op chairperson BredaBourke with independent general election candidate Marie Casserly and MEP Marian Harkin at Creevy Co-opMEP Marian Harkin has called for a national campaign to persuade Pobal to contribute to the new national pay minimum of €9.15 for community employees.A Co. Donegal campaign on the issue is being launched at a meeting in Glenfin on Wednesday night.Ms Harkin expressed horror on Saturday when she was told during a visit to Creevy Co-op in south Donegal that Pobal was not funding the pay increase introduced last week. Pobal is a national agency to support community organisations.Ms Harkin said: “It’s disgraceful that a State agency won’t pay the agreed national new minimum wage. There has to be a national campaign on this”.She said she intends writing to Tanaiste Joan Burton, who is also Minister for Social Protection. The Department provides funding for Pobal.Ms Harkin, along with Independent Dail candidate Marie Casserly, was visiting Creevy Co-op for the first time to hear about its work as a marine facility and rental of eco-friendly holiday cottages. Ms Casserly will be running in the Sligo-Leitrim constituency which now includes much of south Donegal.Creevy co-op employees are paid under Pobal funding.Community groups across county Donegal are holding a public meeting on Wednesday night at the Cloghan Day Centre in Glenfin.Meeting organisers have said in a message to community managers: “It is vital if we are to move forward with this issue to Pobal that all groups are represented on the night to show that we are serious in moving forward.“We have been disappointed with the lack of support from some public representatives as they are our voice in terms of getting the Minister to pay the CSP projects the minimum wage for their employees.” DONEGAL CAMPAIGN TO CALL FOR ‘POBAL’ TO SUPPORT MINIMUM PAY BID was last modified: January 11th, 2016 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:Creevydonegalminimum wagePobal
A DRINK-driving teenager has apologised to a judge for leading Gardaí on a chase through the Donegal countryside and told him: “I haven’t touched a drink since.”Ryan Ivers, who is 19 and from Dunaff, Clonmany, admitted he was drunk when he got into his car on December 21 last year.Inspector David Murphy told Judge Paul Kelly that Gardai had to stop a pursuit of Ivers because he was driving so fast and so dangerously. “He was driving on the wrong side of the road and Gardai decided to end the pursuit fearing a serious road traffic collision,” he said.After a mile, Ivers crashed his car at Tir na League and Gardaí arrested him. He later had a recording of 66 for alcohol, more than twice the legal limit.Mr Ivers, from Dunaff, Clonmany, represented himself in court.He told Judge Paul Kelly: “I haven’t drunk alcohol since.”He was also charged with having no insurance and no driving licence.“You could have killed somebody including yourself,” Judge Kelly told him.“What where you doing driving like this?” asked the judge.Ivers replied: “I just panicked.”Judge Kelly told the teenager: “You’re lucky to be alive. You have very little insight into the consequences of driving like this. You are facing three serious charges, drink driving, driving dangerously and having no insurance. All three carry prison sentences.”Ivers said he was “very very sorry” for his actions.Judge Kelly adjourned sentence until January and ordered Ivers to attend the pro-social drivers course, where he will meet relatives of people killed in road traffic collisions.DRINK DRIVER TOLD HE WAS ‘LUCKY YOU DIDN’T KILL SOMEBODY’ DURING GARDA CHASE was last modified: October 26th, 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:clonmanydangerous drivingdrink drivingDunaff
