AG to challenge judge’s decision on SWAT head after losing case

first_imgAlleged alcohol smugglingDays after a High Court judge had quashed former acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine’s decision to send Special Weapons and Tactics Unit (SWAT) head Motie Dookie on special leave after Dookie had been implicated in alleged alcohol smuggling, Attorney General (AG) Basil Williams signalled on Monday that his chambers could appeal the judge’s ruling.Former SWAT Commander, Deputy Superintendent Mootie DookieSpeaking at a press conference held at the AG’s Chambers, the concurrent Legal Affairs Minister premised the special leave directive on the legal principle of necessity, given the one-year absence of the Police Service Commission (PSC).On August 8, 2018, the Police Service Commission Chairman and members were sworn in, ending some complications in handling of key decisions that involve senior ranks. Williams indicated that the PSC’s absence was felt when Dookie was implicated in allegedly smuggling some 30 cases of whiskey in December last year. He argued that Dookie’s remaining on the job as the probe was underway could have affected the Force’s morale.Ramnarine, on May 21, 2018, effected Citizenship Minister Winston Felix’s directive — given when he was functioning as Public Security Minister — to send Dookie on special leave, but the SWAT head challenged Ramnarine’s actions in court, calling the special leave not only unconstitutional, but irrational and based on irrelevant considerations.Justice Fidela Corbin-Lincoln agreed with Dookie’s arguments and declared the decision unconstitutional, awarding Dookie $100,000 in court costs.Williams disclosed that his Chamber is assessing the case, and he is awaiting a report from the attorneys involved in the case. Thereafter, the Dookie special leave matter could be the subject of an appeal.“Our defence was that it was a case of necessity, which is a legal doctrine; so we’ll look and see how the Court dealt with it, and we’ll decide whether we’re appealing it. But we have the Police Service Commission now,” he pointed out.Following an internal probe, Dookie had been posted to Police ‘A’ Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara), but was reassigned to Police Headquarters, Eve Leary a few days. It was while he was at this post that the SWAT head was sent on special leave pending the probe into the allegations of smuggling the high-end alcoholic product.Dookie was, however, spared criminal charges, since the driver of the vehicle eventually took the rap.last_img read more

Alarcón back as City Council member

first_imgThere are new offices, new faces and new procedures, but Richard Alarcón’s return Monday to the City Hall dais was like stepping into a time warp. “In terms of getting into the mood of City Hall, it was like I never left,” Alarcón said Monday as he moved into his new offices, where he’ll work to represent the San Fernando Valley’s 7th Council District. Alarcón was named last Friday as caretaker of the office, vacated with the election of Alex Padilla to the state Senate, allowing him to begin serving out Padilla’s term. Alarcón handily won the seat in the March 6 election, the results of which will be certified later this month. “This way I can get to work immediately and it will avoid some of the costs involved in a special election,” Alarcón said. For Alarcón, the return to City Hall – where he will be eligible to serve for six years – was like returning home after an extended vacation. It was in City Hall that he first became involved in local politics, serving in the administration of former Mayor Tom Bradley and eventually becoming his liaison to the Valley. He then went on to win a close election to the City Council in 1993 before moving on to the state Senate in 1998 because of term limits. “It’s a good feeling to be back here,” Alarcón said. “It was almost like picking up where I was from the day I left. It’s a great opportunity for me to be home and a great opportunity for the San Fernando Valley in terms of economic development.” rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to call a special election for May 15 to fill the 39th Assembly District seat to which Alarcón was elected last November. That will coincide with the Los Angeles general election. “During my election, a lot of opponents said a special election would cost more than $300,000,” Alarcón said. “By consolidating the election, we can save taxpayers money and, hopefully, get someone in office in time to work on the state budget.” Also, he said, he hopes it will help increase voter turnout by having the Assembly district election combined with the scheduled city election. In that compressed election schedule, Alarcón is supporting Felipe Fuentes as his successor. Fuentes, former chief deputy to Padilla, bowed out of the City Council race after Alarcón announced his candidacy. State officials said they were working on an election calendar to set the dates for filing to qualify for the ballot. No other major candidates have announced their intention to run for the seat. last_img read more

Pele confident Neymar can lead Brazil at World Cup

first_img“We don’t know exactly what is going to happen, but I think for the World Cup he’s going to be in shape because his injury is not so bad,” said Pele, the only person to have won the World Cup three times as a player.“I wish he has the same luck I had in the World Cup.”PSG’s Neymar, the world’s most expensive player, has not played since breaking a metatarsal bone in his right foot on February 25 in a Ligue 1 match against Marseille. He said last week he is still recovering following surgery but expects to be fit in time for the World Cup from June 14 to July 15.– Excellent players –In the last World Cup on home soil four years ago, Brazil were humiliated 7-1 by eventual winners Germany in the semi-finals but Pele feels the team under “psychologist” Tite, which breezed through South American qualifying, has the tools to go all the way.“I am confident because Tite, the new coach, now (has) had a little time to set up the team.“We have a lot of excellent players in Europe. The problem is to put the team together.“I think we’re going to have a good team in the next World Cup.”Pele said he expected few surprises at the tournament, identifying Lionel Messi’s Argentina, Germany, England and France as potential challengers — although he didn’t mention 2010 world champions Spain or current European laureates Portugal, led by their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.However, he said “football is a box of surprises”.As for his own health problems — Pele cancelled a trip to England in January due to “exhaustion”, although his spokesman denied he had been hospitalised — Pele said there was little cause for concern.“I cannot play in the next World Cup but I feel good,” he said with a hearty laugh.“I had an injury, then I had to make a surgery for the head of my hip, then I had to replace (it), then I had a little problem with my meniscus, but now I am OK, I am ready, in good shape!”0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000PSG’s Neymar, the world’s most expensive player, has not played since breaking a metatarsal bone in his right foot on February 25 in a Ligue 1 match against MarseilleDUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Apr 16- Brazilian legend Pele says he is confident about Brazil’s chances at the upcoming World Cup and expects injured star Neymar to be fully fit to lead the side in Russia.Speaking to AFP in Dubai, the 77-year-old, who has been in ailing health recently, put his faith in Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar’s ability to recover from a fractured foot in time to lead Brazil to a possible sixth global football title.last_img read more

Tuskegee Airmen lauded

first_imgALTADENA – Members of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen were honored Sunday as part of a Veterans Day celebration hosted at Farnsworth Park by Rep. Adam Schiff. The airmen – America’s first African-American military airmen – were credited with shooting down 111 German planes during World War II. They also escorted bomber planes throughout the duration of the war and were reknowned for never having lost a bomber. “These are some courageous people who fought the enemy overseas and fought discrimination here at home, and I admire what they were able to accomplish,” said Schiff, D-Pasadena. “It’s a story that really needs to be told and they’re here to tell it today.” As the ceremony started, Schiff not only acknowledged the soldiers’ combat skills but also their bravery to serve their country even with segregation and civil unrest at home. He also said it is not only the veterans who should be honored. “Don’t ever forget the families, because they are the backbone of the veterans,” he said. He continued with a message for the youth, asking them to focus on being positive and productive members of society. Schiff then gave out United States flags – which had been flown over the Capitol – to Goodall, fellow Airman Guy Holloman, and family members of airmen who could not attend. He also acknowledged the many war veterans in the crowd. “This is a testimony to honoring the Tuskegee Airmen and all the veterans, and a great way for me to give honor to my father’s memory,” said Karen Young, whose father, Louis Young, was a member of the airmen. After the ceremony, attendees got a look at authentic World War II memorabilia that was brought from the American Military Museum in South El Monte. Among the items were two military Jeeps that were used in the war. “There should be more of (these celebrations) because a lot of people don’t understand what veterans really go through,” said Donald Radcliff, a Vietnam and Desert Storm veteran who works with the museum. “It’s an honor to serve your country.” robert.hong@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext 4586160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Behind him were photos of the airman and stories detailing their service. Goodall thanked everyone for their support in honoring veterans, and called for continuous support to veterans’ issues. “It’s been said that the veterans are trying to get more than they need,” he said. “That’s a falsehood.” War veterans have made huge sacrifices for their country and deserve the respect and aid they need for their efforts, he said. last_img read more

Lampard ready to make LA move – report

first_imgFrank Lampard is ready to become David Beckham’s replacement at Los Angeles Galaxy, according to the Daily Mirror.The MLS outfit are one of several clubs to have been linked with Lampard, whose Chelsea contract expires at the end of the season.Chelsea will reportedly not offer him a new deal or allow him to leave in January – apparently ruling out a move to QPR for the 34-year-old and leaving him on course for a summer switch to the States.With Beckham leaving the Galaxy, Lampard could take advantage of the ‘designated player’ rule and not be subject to the MLS salary cap.Demba Ba has snubbed an £80,000-a-week offer from QPR, according to The Sun.It is claimed the Newcastle striker rejected a move to Loftus Road because he knows Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham want to sign him.The Sun also report that R’s defender Jose Bosingwa has been hit with a £100,000 fine after refusing to be a substitute against Fulham.This page is regularly updated. 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

I have my mom and my brothers in Brazil. But I think this is my country now,” he said.Silva said he is able to provide more opportunities for his family in the U.S.“We were really excited, especially with learning the language, and I’m going to college,” Kaory said.Also attending the ceremony were Silva’s wife, Dayane, and his other children, Joao, 14, Gabriel, 22, and Kauana, 18.
