Health Ministry Might Be Dragged to Court

first_imgLawyers of a 60-year-old man, David N. Konyon, Sr., have threatened to file a lawsuit against the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare “for the production” of their client’s wife.A letter in the possession of this newspaper addressed to the Minister of Health and Social Welfare states: “On October 3, 2014, a lady by the name of Old-lady Surloe, the wife of David N. Konyon, Sr. was taken from Chea-Poo Road, New Georgia North, Caldwell, by an ambulance believed to have been driven by one Fhanbulleh. The lady was placed in said ambulance by Henry Joe and others in the presence of Henry Passaway, head of the Ambulance Team.”According to Cllr. Viama J. Blama, Trial Lawyer, National Educators Lawyers Association of Liberia (NELAL), who signed the letter, “the said ambulance took the sick patient (Old-lady Surloe) at [to] the Island Clinic.”Cllr. Blama further stated that their client, who is the vice president, North Central Region of the National Teachers Association of Liberia, was in Lofa County at the time and proceeded to Monrovia immediately upon hearing that his wife was ill.“In Monrovia, he visited the Island Clinic in search of his wife and was informed by those he met (Rev. Augustine and Brother Robert) that indeed the lady was taken to the Clinic.  “However, there existed no record concerning her presence at the hospital,” the NELAL trial lawyer stated.He maintained that “whatever the case, Madam Old-lady Surloe was taken by an ambulance belonging to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, driven by its driver, identified as one Fahnbulleh, an employee of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. Accordingly, we demand that the Ministry provide us information that will lead us to the whereabouts of Old-lady Surloe.”Though no time limit was given for the Ministry’s reaction, Mr. Konyon’s lawyers said if the Ministry failed to provide the “information” they need, they would be left with no alternative but to institute the appropriate legal action against the Ministry for the production of her person.It is not yet clear if the Minister has received a copy of the above mentioned letter, but Mr. Konyon came to the Daily Observer office a few days ago with copies of other letters he has written to the top MoHSW officials namely Dr. Bernice T. Dahn, Chief Medical Officer, Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Moses Massaquoi, Mr. Tolbert G. Nyenswah, Assistant Minister for Preventive Services and the Deputy Minister for Administration at the Ministry.In the letters, all of which had similar contents, Mr. Konyon sought their “timely intervention for God and humanity,” to help him find his wife, whether alive or expired.He told this newspaper that his wife left nine children quarantined and two were taken to the “ELWA MSF-ETU” on 15 and 16 of October. He stated that one of the two died on October 22.He further stated that he had written the senior Health Ministry officials asking for their intervention because, “there has been no information from the administration of the Island Clinic ETU regarding the status of my wife (alive, expired) despite all efforts applied.”He also stated that his wife’s family and remaining children constantly question him about the absence of their mom and daughter.According to him, his wife had allegedly communicated with their church mother on the second day of her treatment at the Island Clinic, saying she was responding well to the treatment and requested their prayers.Asst. Min. Tolbert Nyenswah said he has not yet received Mr. Konyon’s letter asking for his intervention in finding his (Konyon’s) wife.Min. Nyenswah, who is one of the lead persons in the national fight against the Ebola virus, told our Health Correspondent that when he gets the letter he will do all he can to provide Mr. Konyon an answer about his wife’s whereabouts, “if she was indeed taken to the Island Clinic ETU. We have records on everyone who comes to our center alive and from which community that person was taken from. If the person dies, we also have records to that effect. So, I will sit with Mr. Konyon to help him out,” said Min. Nyenswah.Min. Nyenswah expressed regret for the loss of every Liberian to the Ebola epidemic and urged everyone alive to continue to follow the preventive instructions as the virus has not totally left Liberia.Meanwhile, there have been reports of alleged poor handling of suspected Ebola patients who go to the ETUs for treatment.  Our judicial reporter, Abednego Davis, said if this case gets to the court, it could open a floodgate of legal suits against the Ministry and some of its partners, who are managing ETUs around the country.“This will be the first case of a suspected Ebola patient allegedly missing and no trace of a record,” he added.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Miatta Fahnbulleh Enters Senatorial Race

first_imgMs. Miatta Fahnbulleh, a social justice advocate and Liberian musical diva, has announced her campaign to contest the upcoming Midterm Senatorial election.Ms. Fahnbulleh is among aspirants, including Congress for Democratic Change’s (CDC’s) George Weah for the senatorial position of Montserrado County in the election scheduled for October this year.“Having advocated and worked for social justice and democracy in Liberia for more than 40 years, Miatta now intends to bring her sensitivity, compassion and integrity to the Senate,” one of her campaigners has declared.Aunty Miatta, as she is affectionately called, strongly believes that the market women, yanna boys, the unemployed young men and women, taxi  and bus drivers—most of whom reside in West Point, Clara Town, Vai Town, Logan Town, New Kru Town, Soniwein, and other poverty-stricken communities in Monrovia—deserve better life.She told her supporters at a recent gathering that she intends to contest for the Senatorial seat for Montserrado County; her birth as an independent candidate.By that conviction, she assured them that she will be going out to the people of Montserrado to offer them a choice of a caring leadership, leadership worthy of trust of the people; a new kind of leadership that will not do “business as usual.”Currently, she serves as the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare’s New Born and Maternal Health Ambassador.Ms. Fahnbulleh believes that the Senator of Montserrado County should have a profound grasp of the real needs of the people, and that access to electricity, clean drinking water, a safe and clean environment, and education are basic human rights.As a Senator, her campaign team leader believes too, that  she would work to implement policies that will not only empower the citizens of the nation’s capital county, but that will also guarantee and protect the rights of the most vulnerable people throughout the Liberian society.The Miatta Fahnbulleh campaign last week announced that the Liberian Musical Diva, has entered the October race as an independent candidate where she is expected to be a potential force for all the contenders in the race.Ms. Fahnbulleh’s campaign is under the theme, “One Tree, Many Branches: One People, One Aim; One Destiny.”Aunty Miatta is one of Liberia’s most famous citizens; a veteran of the struggle for social justice, and democracy in the nation.For several decades, she has been actively involved in the people’s struggle for dignity and human rights. A gifted singer, Miatta has used her soul-stirring voice not only to gladden the hearts of orphans and deprived children, but has also sensitized, created awareness, and given persistent voice to issues affecting the most marginalized members of our society.By that, the musical legendary has been a nagging voice in the ears of the powerful on behalf of the masses. Born and raised in Monrovia, Miatta Fahnbulleh is especially sensitive to the need of improving the living standard of the city’s poor slum dwellers.For the last two decades, Ms. Fahnbulleh abandoned her international career to devote herself to providing education for the children of the poor; a process she is up to present committed to implementing to the fullest.“Legendary artist, social justice activist, and women’s and children’s advocate, Miatta is a veteran of the struggle for democratic rights in Liberia,” her campaign team leader declared.In the 1970s when a chorus of cries for social transformation and democratic participation swept the nation, hers was a rare voice advocating the rights of girls, and women. In the minds of her campaigners, her passion for the most deprived people in the Liberian society transcends class, gender and ethnicity.According to them, Miatta is a patriotic Liberian with big dreams, and a solid vision of empowerment for the nation’s masses.She is especially passionate about equal access for all the people to the benefits accrued from the nation’s resources, the rights of Liberian women and children, and giving skills to the young people for economic independence, among other things.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

ECD man remanded to prison for threatening to kill President

first_imgChief Magistrate Ann McLennan on Monday afternoon remanded a 64-year-old man who reportedly threatened President David Granger’s life.Motilall Balkarran of Triumph, East Coast Demerara (ECD), appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts and denied the charge.The charge against him stated that on March 20, 2018, he made calls to the 911 emergency line at the Brickdam Police Station and threatened to kill President Granger.Remanded: Motilall BalkarranIt is further alleged that he made use of threatening language by calling the 911 telephone line and threatening to kill the President.Balkarran reportedly threatened to take a bomb to the Ministry of the Presidency.In court on Monday, Balkarran was represented by Attorney-at-Law Tiffany Jeffrey, who made a bail application on the ground that the call was placed from an address where several persons live.Owing to the fact that there is no voice recognition system at the Brickdam Station, Jeffrey said in the bail application, it is not clear who made the call.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield objected to bail being granted, noting the seriousness of the offence.Chief Magistrate McLennan denied bail and remanded the 64-year-old to prison. The case will continue on April 16.The matter was transferred to the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court.Two other men are also expected to be charged shortly for the same offence.This is not the first instance persons have been charged for similar offences. Back in 2016, 52-year-old Safoora Salim, of Vergenoegen, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), was charged for using Facebook to issue threatening and derogatory statements against the Head of State.Acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine had confirmed last November that they were investigating reports of an inmate at the Lusignan Prison calling the 911 emergency line and threatening to kill President Granger along with officers of the Police Force.Back in March last year, reports surfaced of an alleged plot to assassinate the Head of State and some $7 million was allegedly offered to carry out the act. After several weeks of Police investigations, President Granger ordered a Commission of Inquiry into the alleged assassination plot. The Commission found that while some aspects of the allegation have a “ring of truth, it was not confirmed during the inquiry”.last_img read more

PSG admission! ‘We thought we’d beaten Chelsea’

first_img1 Demba Ba celebrates against PSG in the Champions League PSG defender Thiago Silva has revealed tough lessons have been learned from last season’s crushing Champions League defeat to Chelsea.With three minutes left, PSG were 3-2 ahead on aggregate following a 3-1 first leg win and the players even thought they had done enough to secure a place in the semi finals.“One important thing to always remember is that until the referee stops, the match is not done yet,” Silva told Nissan.“In the last match [against Chelsea] we thought our team was already qualified.”However, a late Demba Ba goal doubled Chelsea’s lead after Andre Schurrle’s earlier opener, earning Jose Mourinho’s side victory on away goals and a place in the last four at the French side’s expense.Nissan is the official automotive sponsor of the UEFA Champions Leaguelast_img read more

500 homes destroyed in San Diego County

first_imgSAN DIEGO – Hundreds of homes were reduced to ashes today as wildfires blown by fierce desert winds raced across a huge swath of Southern California extending from Malibu to the Mexican border, forcing a quarter of a million people to flee. At least one person was killed and dozens injured by more than a dozen blazes that formed a hellish, spidery pattern of luminous orange covering at least 521 square miles of the drought-stricken region. The news got worse as the day wore on: Soon after nightfall, fire officials announced that 500 homes and 100 commercial properties had been destroyed by a fire in northern San Diego County that exploded to 145,000 acres, said Roxanne Provaznik, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Forestry. The fire injured eight people, including seven firefighters, and was spreading unchecked. Firefighters – who lost valuable time trying to persuade some stubborn homeowners to leave – were almost completely overwhelmed as gale-force winds gusting to 70 mph scattered embers onto dry brush, spawning multiple fires in the same area. California officials pleaded for help from fire departments in other states. About 80 miles northeast, in the mountainous Lake Arrowhead area, a two-front fire destroyed 133 homes in the same mountain resort community where hundreds were lost four years earlier. Air tankers that had been grounded because of high winds were back in the air fighting those fires by early evening. One of the planes was a converted DC-10 airliner, the largest air tanker in existence. It quickly went to work laying down a huge curtain of flame retardant. Meanwhile, in Orange County, a 1,049-inmate jail was evacuated because of heavy smoke. The prisoners were taken by bus to other lockups. In San Diego, about 10,000 evacuees ended up at Qualcomm Stadium, home to the NFL’s Chargers. There they huddled in eerie silence on the bleachers, staring at muted TV news reports of the wildfires. A lone concession stand served coffee and doughnuts. Others gathered in the parking lot with their pets, which were banned from the stadium. The sprawling Del Mar Fairgrounds on the coast was also turned into an evacuation center, along with high schools and senior centers. At least one of the fires, in Orange County, was believed to have been the work of an arsonist. A blaze threatening the homes of the rich and famous in Malibu might have been caused by downed power lines, authorities said. The Malibu residents forced to evacuate included Mel Gibson, Victoria Principal and Kelsey Grammer, none of whom lost homes, according to their publicists. By nightfall, burning embers ignited spot fires in the neighboring ultrawealthy suburb of Rancho Santa Fe, north of San Diego. The embers started fires in lemon orchards and smoke choked the air around gated mansions. South of the city, in Chula Vista, authorities issued yet more orders to leave. The blazes in San Diego County and elsewhere erupted one after another over the weekend. Several new fires erupted Monday, while others merged. Parts of seven Southern California counties were ablaze. All San Diego police officers and detectives were ordered to return to work to help move people to safety and handle other fire-related emergencies. Firefighters complained that their efforts to stop the flames were delayed when they were confronted by people who refused to leave their homes. “They didn’t evacuate at all, or delayed until it was too late,” said Bill Metcalf, a fire boss. Tom Sollie, 49, ignored evacuation orders in the city’s Rancho Bernardo area to help his neighbors spray roofs on his street with water. His home was untouched, but he watched a neighbor’s house reduced to nothing but the remnants of a brick chimney. “The house went up like a Roman candle,” Sollie said. He added: “If we weren’t here, the whole neighborhood would go up. There just aren’t enough fire trucks around.” As flames, thick smoke and choking ash filled the air around northern San Diego County’s Lake Hodges, Stan Smith ignored orders to leave, staying behind to help rescue his neighbor Ken Morris’ horses. “It’s hard to leave all your belongings and take off, and the bad thing is you can’t get back in once you leave,” Smith said. Besides, said Smith, “Lots of time the fire doesn’t ever come. It’s come really close before. I’ve seen it so bad you couldn’t even hear yourself talk over the flames and ash blowing everywhere.” Black smoke blanketed much of northern San Diego and nearby suburbs as flames hopscotched around homes in Rancho Bernardo, a community with a large number of elderly people, destroying one of every 10 homes on one busy street. Highways, canals and other features normally act as firebreaks. But the towering flames and flying embers rendered them useless this time. Dozens of motorists gathered on an Interstate 15 overpass in San Diego to watch flames race up a hillside and engulf at least a half-dozen homes. Witnesses said they watched flames jump west over the 10-lane freeway. “The flames were like 100 feet high and it moved up the hill in seconds. It was at the bottom, it was in the middle, and then it was at the top,” said Steve Jarrett, who helped a friend evacuate his home in nearby Escondido. Fire near the San Diego Wild Animal Park led authorities to move condors, a cheetah, snakes and other animals to the fire-resistant veterinary hospital on the grounds of the park. The large animals, such as elephants, rhinos and antelope, were left in irrigated enclosures. The world-famous San Diego Zoo was not immediately threatened. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency in the seven affected counties, opening the way for government aid. He also directed the California National Guard to make 1,500 guardsmen, including 200 troops patrolling the border, available to support firefighting efforts. San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders said the troops main focus will be to prevent looting and allow “orderly evacuations.” “Its a tragic time for California,” Schwarzenegger said in Malibu, where a church, homes and a mansion resembling a medieval castle were destroyed over the weekend. In Fallbrook, northeast of San Diego, a quick-moving fire that began Monday forced thousands to flee. Marine officials at neighboring Camp Pendleton opened the base to residents fleeing the flames. The San Diego fire closest to the Mexican border was responsible for one death. More than a dozen people were hospitalized with burns and smoke inhalation, including four firefighters, three of whom were listed in critical condition, officials said. Some of the injured were hikers, while others may be illegal immigrants. Among the evacuees were members of a National Guard unit that had to flee its barracks. San Diego County spokeswoman Lesley Kirk said fire crews were stretched thin and were anxiously awaiting reinforcements from other parts of the state. “The winds are up, it’s very, very dangerous conditions,” Kirk said. “Fires are popping up all over the place.” In late October and early November of 2003, 15 fires in many of the same areas killed 22 people and destroyed 3,640 homes. Ten years earlier, in October and November of 1993, 26 fires in those areas killed four people and damaged or destroyed 1,200 structures.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It was like Armageddon. It looked like the end of the world,” Mitch Mendler, a San Diego firefighter, said as he and his crew stopped at a shopping center parking lot to refill their water truck from a hydrant near a restaurant. At least 14 fires were burning in Southern California, said Patti Roberts, spokeswoman for the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. “We have literally the perfect firestorm going on,” Roberts said. “We’re a long ways from containment if there is such a thing given these winds.” From San Diego to Malibu, more than 150 miles up the Pacific coast, at least 655 homes and 168 businesses or other structures were destroyed. More than 265,000 people in numerous communities were warned to leave their homes. At least 250,000 residents were told to flee in San Diego County alone. “It’s probably closer to 300,000,” said County Supervisor Ron Roberts. More 200,000 reverse 911 calls – calls from county officials to residents – were made, alerting people to evacuations, he said. Among them were hundreds of patients were moved by school bus and ambulance from a hospital and nursing homes, many still in their hospital gowns and wheelchairs. Some carried their medical records in large zip-lock plastic bags.last_img read more

Donegal chef suing famous London restaurant for €230K for injury

first_imgA Donegal chef who says she was left with crippling RSI after churning out thousands of chocolate playing cards and whiskey wine gums at a famous London restaurant is now suing it for over €230,000.Promising pastry chef Sharon Anderson, 28, is plagued by chronic wrist pain caused by carrying out repetitive and delicate kitchen tasks, her lawyers claim. Ms Anderson is originally from Glentidally in Milford.Her tasks included putting 400 sweets a day into small bags using tweezers, racing against time to make chocolate playing cards before the chocolate set too hard, and administering hundreds of tiny fingertip pinches to mushroom logs.She is now suing Heston Blumenthal’s legendary Fat Duck restaurant for alleged negligence for giving her work which was “too fast, arduous and repetitive for her”.She says her RSI has led to her becoming depressed and anxious and has been unable to work since leaving the restaurant in November 2015.But the restaurant, whose super chef boss Heston Blumenthal won it a reputation for cutting edge culinary brilliance, is flatly denying all fault.It says the type of work she did is common to the sort of patisserie practised in other “fine dining restaurants”.For full story see https://www.thesun.ie/news/4695499/chef-suing-heston-blumenthal-fat-duck-rsi/Donegal chef suing famous London restaurant for €230K for injury was last modified: October 26th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:chefdonegalLondonMilfordSharon AndersonsueThe Fat Ducklast_img read more

DONEGAL GARDAI WARN PUBLIC OVER CHAINSAW SCAM

first_imgGardai have issued a warning about the possible advertising and sale of spurious copy chainsaws and generators to unsuspecting customers in Donegal.They say chainsaws may be offered on the market will be copy replicas of established market leaders but only have a operating life of only 40/45 hours.There is no back up, guarantee, quality and compliance with health and safety standards may also be in doubt. Local Garda Crime Prevention Officer Sergeant Paul Wallace has advised the public not to be duped by advertisements by unscrupulous persons who use authentic sales platforms to advertise these phones.Commenting Sgt Wallace said “We have certain information about the purchase of a this type of equipment in Europe which originates in the Far East. This again looks like the recent iPhone scam and people may get caught.”The quality construction and design of equipment such as a chainsaw or an electricity generator is of paramount importance from an health and safety point of view and purchasers or users should not be ‘conned’ into purchase of sub standard equipment that does not reach industry and European norms.This type of equipment should only be purchased from authentic dealers where the purchaser can be assured of a quality product which reaches all necessary environmental and safety standards and is guaranteed to do the job intended. “It is important for the public to be aware that ‘ buyer beware’ as if you purchase equipment which is useless there is usually no comeback.“Remember if it sounds too good to be true it normally is. But by purchasing you are feeding into crime in your county and in your community,” Sgt Wallace concluded.It is important to report to Gardai if you have become a victim of this type of crime. DONEGAL GARDAI WARN PUBLIC OVER CHAINSAW SCAM was last modified: March 24th, 2014 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:chainsawdonegalGardailast_img read more
