SIMPLE LOGIC AND THE LAW: ANNIE CONSTANCE & SON BREAK THEIR SILENCE

first_imgAnnie Constance (left) has written a letter to President George Manneh Weah, asking his help in getting back the house her mentally unstable son had given away to Associate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh (right).“WE LOVE YOU TOO,” THE HOLIDAY CHEER RANG OUT. AND SUPPORTERS OF JUSTICE KABINEH JA’NEH’S WERE SHOCKED. IT WAS A 90-YEAR-OLD WIDOW RETURNING THE JULY 26TH SEASON’S GREETINGS—WITH A BENEDICTION ATTACHED. IT WENT OUT TO THE SCOLDING AND MOCKING SUPPORTERS OF JUSTICE KABINEH JA’NEH’S, WHO HAD HEAPED ON ANNIE AND THE REST OF THE CONSTANCE CLAN, ALL THAT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE WISHED ON THEMSELVES. AND IT HAD BEEN THAT, WHICH OVER THE HOLIDAYS HAD URGED OUR INTERVIEWEES: ANNIE CONSTANCE & SON BREAK THEIR SILENCEIT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN SOONER OR LATER; SOMETHING THAT WOULD GRANT THAT FAMILY SOME RESPITE, (RELIEF) FROM THEIR ON-GOING, TWILIGHT ZONE OR STRANGE RUN-IN WITH ASSOCIATE JUSTICE JA’NEH AND THE COURT SYSTEM. THAT LEFT THEM CONFUSED, WHICH IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED.BY KEITH NEVILLE ASUMUYAYA BESTThe apparent loss of her house, had hit Mrs. Constance hard—she earlier had confided—like an intrigue (conspiracy, maneuver) that to her family, sounded like what a political analyst once called: “broad, daylight robbery, violating that ‘rule of rules’ related to land changing hands from one person to the other: “a meeting of the mind.”Needless to say, such a meeting never, ever, took place between Mrs. Annie Yancy Constance, and the gentleman who now holds possession of her property.This particular rule would have been crucial (critical, central) as mental capacity would have played an important role since parties involved in all legally sanctioned conveyance of property are by law required to be possessed of legal authority and a sound mind in order to conduct business.According to Mrs. Constance’s younger son, Nathaniel Jacko Constance, his older brother, John Nyema Constance was mentally disturbed: “non compos mentis,” (not of a sound mind) and would have been incompetent to legally engage in the sale of property—especially something he had no authority over. In addition, that would have rendered him blameless by law, for his actions.J. CAN DO NO WRONGAfter months of listening to Associate Justice Ja’neh’s supporters—“that the gentleman could do no wrong”—the Constances: Annie and her son, Nathaniel had nothing but “best wishes” for Justice Ja’neh’s hordes of supporters, over the holidays.“We really wish them well,” Nathaniel told the Daily Observer, days before the 26 celebration; “we are saying so out of concern for them and for this country. There is just too much at stake; and those people talking and writing—and, in their ignorance, are hurting us in the process—have no idea that the man they are rushing to support—is the kind of person that he is.”“We only hope that they will find a way to avoid the treatment we have suffered, should they ever have to face what we have had to deal with all these years, and there is still more to come. But, never mind that: Today, it is the Constances.Tomorrow, it could be the Budys, or the Gartehs. Are we not human beings too? PART II. OBSERVER: SOBER REFLECTION LONG OVERDUE“Liberia at 171: what have we to show?” That is what the Observer’s 26-eve Editorial asked on the eve of the holiday. It aimed—at getting citizens—for once—to pass up the usual July 26 -festivities: drinking, eating and dancing, for something more important:Let’s use the day—or, at least, a portion of it—to reflect (take a serious look back) upon those who presented themselves as administrators, directors, managers, that we allowed to take the stage of leadership, one after the other over the past half-century, beginning in 1971.Some of these so-called “leaders,” our people had elected (chosen, decided on) to work with; others simply seized the opportunity, or the power that that opportunity had dashed them, to strut, (march, walk) themselves onstage.Notwithstanding, the people agreed to put up with one after the other, urging each to do his or her utmost—the maximum, the best each could—in dynamizing (instilling, pouring into) the hearts and minds of this people and nation, electrodes (electric conductors) of patriotism, passion, and commitment to the common good—boosted by a determination to lead this people forward, “in pathways of justice and right,” with equality for all!raising, a disappointing crop (yield, pick) of “leaders,” that made little headway, has almost guaranteed Liberia spiraled out of control, en-route (on its way) to an abyss (chasm, deep hole) that this country has not been able to lift itself out of, since 1971!I mean, look at some of the “leaders” we have hailed between that time and now! How does a nation keep cultivating (planting, growing) produce, that keeps popping up, only to end up no better than what old lady Lilian Porte-Best use to call: “a piece of yeenebee,” (something gone astray, a mistake)?REHABILITATIONThe best of that bunch, most Liberians today believe, was the late President William R. Tolbert Jr., whose sainted-memory and legacy is at present, under rehabilitation by the recently returned (2017) “The Revelation Magazine,” the 2011 revived “the Co-co-leo-coo newspaper,” and the 2009 launched “Porte Standard” newspaper, that was short-lived.Today, Dr. Tolbert holds his own amongst Liberia’s more notable presidents—from Joseph Jenkins Roberts to William V.S. Tubman. Those leaders that, during their run, failed to clear the “piece of nyeenebee’ hurdle, watched the nation lose its moorings, (secured situation) condemned to languish (rot and suffer in the morass (mess) they helped create and watched the country sink back—time and time again—to the same situation it had been trapped by before. So, justWhere we say we from? Just who do we say we are? And where we say we gwoin’? That is what Liberians need to ask themselves. The Daily Observer editorial tries to offer a clue: “one leader after the other of this republic—just as this column discussed above—“has betrayed the vision of the Founding Fathers. And they have done so by creating a hydra-headed monster, that is become the three branches of government: the Executive the Legislative, and the Judiciary.TO BE CONTINUED.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Friendly fire may have killed FBI agent in N.J. shootout

first_imgWhen the agents found three suspects outside a bank on Route22 in Readington about noon Thursday, a shootout ensued and Bush was hit. Josh Bavosa, 35, said he was making a business deposit at the PNC Bank when heard three gunfire bursts that sounded as if they were from an automatic weapon. When he looked out the window, Bavosa said, he saw law enforcers swarming around a car, pulling two people out and ordering them onto the ground. Brian Agans, who works in an engine shop across from the bank, said he heard a “pop, pop, pop.” He ran outside to make sure a mechanic wasn’t having a problem with equipment but instead saw law enforcement swarming. “All hell was breaking loose. I’ve never seen so many police and authorities take action ever in my life,” Agans said. READINGTON, N.J. – An FBI agent who was killed Thursday in a shootout with three bank robbery suspects might have been shot accidentally by another agent on his stakeout team, the FBI said. Agent Barry Lee Bush, 52, assigned to the Newark office, died after agents confronted three men suspected in a series of armed bank robberies. “Preliminarily, information suggests the agent may have been fatally wounded as a result of the accidental discharge of another agent’s weapon during a dynamic arrest situation,” the FBI said in a statement Thursday night. Bush and his team were tracking a group of men believed to be responsible for four robberies, the FBI said. In two of the robberies, the suspects had fired assault weapons while inside the bank, the agency said. Two suspects, Wilfredo Berrios, 28, and Michael Cruz, 21, both of New Brunswick, were captured, officials said. State and local authorities were searching for another man who ran into the woods, identified by state police as Francisco Herrera-Genao, 22, of New Brunswick. Berrios and Cruz were to be charged with attempted armed robbery of the Readington bank, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Newark said. It was not immediately clear if the men had attorneys. The FBI had started investigating Berrios, Cruz and Herrera-Genao after a March2 bank robbery. A surveillance camera at a shopping center caught the masked gunmen abandoning a stolen car they had used in the robbery and getting into their “switch car,” a rental vehicle that was traced to Berrios, according to a criminal complaint released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Bush joined the FBI in August of 1987, serving in Kansas City and transferring to Newark in 1991. He is survived by a wife and two grown children, the FBI said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Yaya Toure in talks over summer move to Inter Milan, claims agent

first_img1 Manchester City star Yaya Toure could leave the club this summer Yaya Toure’s agent has claimed talks are being held with Inter Milan over a summer move.Speculation about the Manchester City midfielder’s future has been an ongoing theme and it appears he could reunite with former City boss Roberto Mancini at San Siro.Toure, who has a year to run on his contract, was allowed to leave Barcelona by incoming City manager Pep Guardiola in 2010 and agent Dimitri Seluk claims the club are keen to sell the Ivory Coast international.Seluk told calciomercato.it: “It’s true, we’re talking with Mancini.“We’re looking for a solution with Manchester City, who want to sell Yaya Toure only up front, not on loan.“I can’t say if there are other teams interested. He has a contract, but nothing special. Inter? It’s a good club.”last_img read more

Monaco land sought-after midfielder Youri Tielemans from Anderlecht

first_img1 The 20-year-old was reportedly a target for both Manchester clubs French champions Monaco have beaten Premier League rivals to the capture of sought-after Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans on a five-year contract.The 20-year-old, already a full Belgium international, was reportedly a target for both Manchester United and their rivals City among other European giants, but Champions League semi-finalists Monaco have won the race for his signature.A statement published on asmonaco.com on Wednesday night said Tielemans, who leaves Anderlecht, had agreed a deal running to June 2022.He told his new club’s website: “Monaco is a club with an ambitious project, recognised on the European stage, and which relies on young players.“I am very happy to be here. I will now do everything possible to progress here and repay the confidence the club have shown in me.”Tielemans scored 13 league goals for Anderlecht this season and was a key player as the Brussels side reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League, where they lost to Manchester United.Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev added: “Youri won the Belgian championship and was voted the best player. He was courted by very big clubs but it is Monaco with whom he chose to make progress.“We are very happy because it proves the increasing attractiveness of our project. His arrival is in line with our strategy of recruiting talented young players.“This strategy, which allowed to win the French title and get to the last four in Europe, is bearing fruit.last_img read more

GLENVEAGH NATIONAL PARK BOSSES REFUSE TO WITHDRAW FOREIGN SPRING WATER FROM SALE

first_imgDINNY McGINLEY’S Department of Heritage has refused to withdraw the sale of foreign spring water from Glenveagh National Park.In a statement the department has admitted being inundated with complaints from Irish visitors – because the tea room and the restaurant at the site is selling bottled spring water imported all the way from WALES!But it says the Princes Gate drink will stay on sale – and an Irish alternative will be offered from next week. “The position is that the catering outlets at Glenveagh National Park are operated by way of an out-sourced contract concession. The bottled water currently on sale is a quality, attractive product that is produced in Wales,” said a spokesman.“In response to customer feedback, the operator will arrange to have an Irish sourced bottled water product available shortly as an alternative choice.“Tap water is also available freely at the catering outlets.”The Glebe Gallery has ditched the Welsh water and started offering bottled Irish water yesterday afters similar complaints. Deputy Pearse Doherty insisted the government departments and their semi-state bodies should buy Irish.In a statement he said: “I don’t understand how we can ask tourists from home and abroad to come to Donegal and then sell them bottled water from another country when so many local alternatives are there.“We either want to support Irish jobs or we don’t and it appears the people running the catering at Glenveagh have taken a decision which has irked many many people.”GLENVEAGH NATIONAL PARK BOSSES REFUSE TO WITHDRAW FOREIGN SPRING WATER FROM SALE was last modified: August 24th, 2013 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)last_img read more
