Order to appoint Board of DCRA made absolute

Order to appoint Board of DCRA made absolute

first_imgHigh Court challengeThe High Court on Wednesday upheld an Order Rule Nisi of Mandamus that was granted last month, compelling Legal Affairs Minister and Attorney General Basil Williams to appoint the Governing Board of the Deeds and Commercial Registries Authority (DCRA).The Governing Board is non-functional, is not properly constituted, and has not held a meeting for over a year. The members of the Board, whose tenure has expired, have not been replaced by the minister in accordance with, and as mandated by, Section 6 of the Deeds and Commercial Registries Authority Act.Former Legal Affairs Minister and Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, had moved to the High Court to compel his successor to appoint the board. When the matter was first heard on March 8, Justice Brassington Reynolds granted an Order Rule Nisi of Mandamus compelling the Minister of Legal Affairs to appoint the Governing Board of the DCRA, and to show cause why this Order Rule Nisi of Mandamus should not be made absolute.At a subsequent hearing on April 5, detailed legal submissions were made by AG Williams and Nandlall before High Court Judge Justice Nareshwar Harnanan, before whom the matter had been placed. Justice Harnanan, on April 19, subsequently delivered an 18-page written ruling in which he overruled all the AG’s submissions and upheld Nandlall’s arguments, and thus made the Order Rule Nisi of Mandamus granted by Justice Reynolds absolute.The Attorney General was further ordered to pay the applicant, Nandlall, $100,000 dollars as costs. With this ruling, the Legal Affairs Minister is now ordered to appoint the Governing Board to the DCRA.Nandlall had outlined in his applications that the Deeds and Commercial Registries Authority Act 2013, Act No 4 of 2013, establishes the Deeds and Commercial Registries as a corporate body created to establish and promote the efficient and orderly operation of the Deeds Registry and the Commercial Registry, to establish the conditions governing the employment of officers and employees of the Authority, to provide for funding of the operations of the Authority, and for connected matters.Nandlall also explained that the Act establishes a Governing Board of the said Authority which shall have the function of ensuring the proper and efficient performance of the functions of the Authority.The Governing Board shall consist of a Chairman appointed by the Minister; the Registrar of Deeds; the Registrar of the Commercial Registry; a nominee of the Finance Ministry; a nominee of the Housing and Water Ministry; a nominee of the Guyana Bar Association; a nominee of the Guyana Association of Legal Professionals; and a nominee of the Private Sector.Nandlall argued that the tenure of the members of the Governing Board who were last appointed on or about June 2013, expired on or about June 2016, and they were never re-appointed by the Minister, in accordance with Section 6 of the said Act.He argued that the aforesaid conduct constitutes multiple breaches of the Deeds and Commercial Registries Authority Act 2013, Act No 4 of 2013, Acts and/or omissions to perform duties imposed by the said Act constitute an abuse of power, conflict with the policy of the Act, and constitute misfeasance in public office.Nandlall said that, as a consequence, “there is inefficiency in the services rendered at the said Registries, which have an adverse impact on my practice and upon my ability to discharge my duties to my clients competently and diligently.”He said the breaches to which he alluded constitute infractions of the law and amount to unlawful conduct by public officers, for which, “as an Attorney-at-Law, I feel compelled to seek rectification in the courts.”last_img read more

Birech: The toast of Kenya’s DL charge

Birech: The toast of Kenya’s DL charge

first_img0Shares0000BRUSSELS, September 7- In his past five wins on the IAAF Diamond League circuit, Jairus Birech has looked almost unbeatable. In Brussels, he was pushed all the way by European record-holder Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad, but the Kenyan pulled out his first sub-eight-minute performance to secure the Diamond Race title. Led through the first 1000m in 2:38.41, Mekhissi-Benabbad was keeping close to the pacemaker before Birech took up the running and went through 2000m in 5:21.31, with the tempo slipping just outside eight-minute pace.Determined to become the 11th member of the sub-eight-minute club, Birech pushed the pace in the closing kilometre, opening up a gap on Mekhissi-Benabbad before the final lap.The 21-year-old Kenyan continued to pull away from his French rival and stopped the clock at 7:58.41, taking him to 10th on the world all-time list.Mekhissi-Benabbad had to be content with a season’s best and European lead of 8:03.23. In third, USA’s Evan Jager set a North American record of 8:04.71.“I felt strong before the race,” said Birech. “My aim was to run under eight minutes and I did it. I have reached all my goals this year: to win the Diamond Race, become African champion and run under eight minutes.”Fellow Kenyan Mercy Cherono did what was required – beating world indoor champion Genzebe Dibaba – to win the Diamond Race in the women’s 3000m.A large group was huddled together for much of the race and it was only on the last lap when the real racing began.European 1500m champion Sifan Hassan led at the bell with 2011 world 1500m champion Jenny Simpson on her shoulder and Cherono down in seventh. With 200 metres to go, Cherono began to make her move and she kicked hard as she entered the home straight.The world 5000m silver medallist did just enough to overtake Hassan, taking the win in 8:28.95. Hassan found some consolation in the fact she set a Dutch record of 8:29.38, becoming just the second woman in history after Maryam Yusuf Jamal to have personal bests below 2:00 for 800m, 4:00 for 1500m, 8:30 for 3000m and 15:00 for 5000m.Dibaba finished third in 8:29.41. In fourth, Simpson set a personal best of 8:29.58, just 0.35 ahead of US compatriot Shannon Rowbury, who also dipped below 8:30.Kiplagat defeated but does enough The men’s 1500m was one of the tighter Diamond Race competitions coming into Brussels and it did not disappoint.World champion Asbel Kiprop, world leader Silas Kiplagat and world indoor champion Ayanleh Souleiman were all in contention for the Diamond Race victory. Olympic champion Taoufik Makhloufi was also in the race and was always in a good position.Paced through 800m in 1:52.99, Ethiopia’s Aman Wote was in the lead with 300 metres to go. Makhloufi then moved to the front with half a lap remaining, only for Kiplagat to kick hard.The Kenyan came close to catching the Algerian, but Makhloufi held on for the win in 3:31.78, just 0.02 ahead of Kiplagat.The fast-finishing Souleiman was just a further 0.02 behind. Nevertheless, by beating his top two rivals, Kiplagat maintained his lead in the Diamond Race.World champion Eunice Sum had her lowest finish in an 800m race this year, but it mattered little to a woman who had already done enough earlier in the season to win the Diamond Race.USA’s world bronze medallist Brenda Martinez was the surprise winner, bursting into the lead with 200m to go and holding off a strong challenge from Lynsey Sharp and Sum to win in 1:58.84.Sharp clocked 1:58.94 in second place with Sum in third but given the same time.On the 15th anniversary of Noah Ngeny’s world 1000m record, the Kenyan’s mark went unchallenged in the non-IAAF Diamond League event.After being paced through 800m in 1:48.8, the Polish pair of Adam Kszczot and Marcin Lewandowski led coming into the home straight.World 800m champion Mohammed Aman then made his move and although it was enough to catch Lewandowski, he could not quite reach European 800m champion Kszczot before the line.Kszczot won in a national record of 2:15.72, just 0.03 ahead of the Ethiopian record set by Aman, with Lewandowski was just a further 0.04 behind in third.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

SHOCK REPORTS: Arsenal trigger release clause for Jamie Vardy

SHOCK REPORTS: Arsenal trigger release clause for Jamie Vardy

first_img Jamie Vardy fired Leicester City to the 2015/16 Premier League title Arsenal have activated the release clause for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, according to reports. The 29-year-old forward – currently on international duty with England ahead of Euro 2016 – fired 27 goals for the Foxes in all competitions in 2015/16. The Premier League champions may have no choice but to allow their star striker to open talks with the north Londoners – with the figure being reported around £20m-£22m. Liverpool are said to be willing to pay the former non-league man higher wages, but they cannot offer Champions League football. Former Leicester and England striker Gary Lineker wants Vardy to stay at the King Power Stadium with Claudio Ranieri’s side.In response to broadcaster Piers Morgan, who wrote on Twitter “Come on @vardy7 – let’s do this”, Lineker challenged Vardy to turn down the advances from north London.He wrote: “Stay with the Champions @vardy7 don’t join the perennial also-rans.”Leicester signed Vardy from Fleetwood – then non-league – in 2012 and he previously played for FC Halifax and Stocksbridge Park Steels. Last season, Ranieri’s men were 5,000-1 shots to win the league at the beginning of the campaign but defied those odds to finish an astonishing 10 points clear of second-placed Arsenal. 1last_img read more

Accrington boss apologises to Jon Moss for furious rant after Derby defeat

Accrington boss apologises to Jon Moss for furious rant after Derby defeat

first_img on target Top scorer in 2019: Messi, Mbappe and Sterling trailing Europe’s top marksman “It wasn’t the fault of Jon Moss that we lost the game,” said Coleman in a statement on Sunday.“I shouldn’t be blaming him for it and I want to apologise.“I still stand by some of my comments that there were some inconsistencies, especially with some players getting booked and others not for what I saw as similar tackles.”In the build-up to Martyn Waghorn’s decisive goal, Janoi Donacien was incorrectly penalised for a ‘foul’ that Coleman felt was actually an excellent tackle. “The build-up to the goal! The fourth official is shouting down his mic ‘good tackle, good tackle, good tackle.’“He [Jon Moss] gives a foul and they score from that and we are getting this every single week.“To be honest, I sometimes feel like packing it in.” 3 “The best comment I could say to our lads is that you wouldn’t know we were down to ten men for 25 minutes. Even the most ardent and bias Derby fan would have to admit they did not deserve to win that game.“The best they deserved was a draw and unfortunately, for two weeks running we get a horrendous decision which goes against us. Dan Barlaser is shown a second yellow for a poorly timed challenge 3 Waghorn pounces to score the winner for Derby Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman has apologised to Jon Moss after claiming the refereeing during the defeat to Derby left him feeling “sick”, “depressed” and “persecuted”.In an furious post-match rant, Coleman attacked the officials for making a series of ‘horrendous decisions’ which he felt cost the League One side.

It’s not a dangerous tackle. It’s a fair coming together, two players trying to win the ball.“It happened two minutes before to our captain and he played on! Or he just gives the foul and he says, ‘It’s a coming together’.

Caldwell frustrated after Thistle denied late penalty

Caldwell frustrated after Thistle denied late penalty

first_imgHearts boss Craig Levein felt his own team were denied a penalty for a foul on Uche Ikpeazu but they were awarded two.Sean Clare netted the first to put Hearts 2-1 up with 10 minutes left of the first half, after Ikpeazu had cancelled out Scott McDonald’s opener.Ikpeazu saw the second penalty saved by Conor Hazard after being awarded a penalty for a challenge by Blair Spittal.Levein said: “He had an agreement with (assistant manager) Austin (MacPhee) that if he won a penalty he’d get to take it. Austin sorts the set-pieces. That agreement has been ripped up now…”The Hearts boss felt his team were worthy winners.He added: “Once we settled down and scored a couple, I thought we were dominating – until that last five or 10 minutes,” he said.“They sent their goalie up which is always quite exciting. We had to see it out for the last five minutes.” Partick Thistle manager Gary Caldwell felt his side were denied a clear spot-kick in stoppage-time of their 2-1 Scottish Cup quarter-final replay defeat by Hearts at Tynecastle.Thistle had two huge shouts rejected in the latter stages, firstly when John Souttar lunged in on Joe Cardle, and then when Miles Storey went down claiming his legs had been clipped by Christophe Berra.Jags players surrounded referee Bobby Madden after each incident but Caldwell delivered a measured analysis afterwards.Caldwell – who has a suspended touchline ban hanging over him after serving a suspension for criticising match officials – said: “I had never been in trouble with refs before but I got in trouble so I have to be careful of what I say. “But I did go and speak to the ref, calmly. “He was very good, he said the first one was no way a penalty and I’ve looked at it back and he’s right. He said the second one he saw contact but he couldn’t be sure. That disappoints me a little bit.“I have looked at it back and it’s a penalty. Everyone knew it in the stadium, I think Christophe Berra knew it was a penalty.“It’s disappointing from that point of view, but that’s football. He’s got a very hard job to do, refereeing is not easy, and I don’t blame him.“I’m just really proud of the team with the way we played. The bravery we showed on the ball was brilliant. And we stood toe to toe for two games with one of the top teams in this country.”last_img read more
