Signing bonus caseIn the matter relating to the signing bonus, an affidavit submitted to the court by Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil Williams has been described as shameful.Opposition Leader, Bharrat JagdeoOpposition Leader Dr Bharrat Jagdeo, who had a look at the document — which explains why the Government has kept the US$18 million signing bonus outside of the Consolidated Fund – has described it as nonsensical.“It is shameful that an Attorney General would be so unschooled in the financial laws of the country that he would subscribe to such an affidavit, or have his office send in an affidavit like that,” Jagdeo opined.Jagdeo, an economist and former Finance Minister, said he finds the explanation, which is filled with meaningless legal jargon, to be atrocious, and doing more damage than repair to the AG’s argument.He said, “It goes off in fairyland about definitions of the Consolidated Fund, and confuses it with Deposit Fund; and it makes absolutely no sense, based on what I read there.”The Opposition Leader has said he would like to see a specialist is hired to testify and clarify the issue.Jagdeo reiterated that his party feels there was a specific reason why the money was not placed into the Consolidated Fund. That reason is: so that the money is not audited by the Auditor General, and it could possibly get stolen.Attorney General Basil Williams“So while parts of it would have been used to pay a lawyer et cetera, we would have seen inflated bills and a whole range of other issues – expenditure that would have used up all the money,” Jagdeo explained.Jagdeo said that is the main reason why the Opposition, through its Member of Parliament, former Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall, had filed a case in the High Court to have the money transferred into the Consolidated Fund.Shifting his attention back to the affidavit, Jagdeo said there isn’t any defence for keeping the money outside of the Consolidated Fund, and it therefore meant that something had to be said otherwise.In light of recent reports that the signing bonus that was placed in a private account at the Bank of Guyana (BoG) was reportedly removed, several senior Government Ministers have dismissed the claim.Local economist Ramon Gaskin said in a letter to the media that the Bank of Guyana’s financial statement was recently issued, and there was no trace of the signing bonus.Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, has also denied that the money was used, and despite the ongoing case, he said Government would take steps to have the money placed into the Consolidated Fund.“The signing bonus is monies that belong to Guyana, but that bonus — wherever it is — will be placed into the Consolidated Fund, and it is from that Fund that any team whatsoever will be paid,” he has stated.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman has declined to pronounce on the matter, but told media operatives that there is nothing sinister afoot if the monies were to be moved.He said there is nothing untoward or sinister about monies from the signing bonus being used for the purpose for which it is intended, that is: to pay legal fees for the Guyana/Venezuela border controversy case.Government’s decision to deposit the signing bonus received from ExxonMobil into a private account is being challenged by Nandlall, who is contending that Government is in “breach of, and contrary to, the letter and spirit of Article 216 of the Constitution of the Republic of Guyana, and Section 38 (1) of the Fiscal Management and Accountability Act, Chapter 73:02.”At the last hearing — on March 13, 2018 — timelines were given for the parties to file the requisite documents. Nandlall had to file an affidavit in reply on or before March 26. Thereafter, the applicant has to file the submissions before April 20, and the respondents have to file their submissions before May 11.The matter has been adjourned to June 14 for hearing or ruling.

These included Shameeza Baksh, Taramattie Barker, Roxanne Barratt, Rosemary Benjamin-Noble, Donna Bowman, John Critchlow, Wavenie Dorsett, Hilbert Foster, Gloria Garraway, Lawrence Griffith, Soyinka Grogan, Claudette Heyliger-Thomas, Parmeshwar Jagmohan, Suresh Jagmohan, Ian Jardine, Mohammed Kassim, Bibi Khan, Gordon Kingston, Kumar Lallbachan, Peter Lewis, Nasrudeen Mohammed, Terrence Poole, Leslie Romalho, Harripersaud Ramsewack, Petal Ridley, Gail Robinson, Ramkarran Roopchand, James Sampson, Komal Singh, Zohora Singh and Fitzroy Younge.Chairperson of the Advisory Council of the Orders of Guyana and Acting Chancellor, Yonette Cummings-Edwards told the awardees, “We extend heartfelt congratulations to you. You’re being celebrated for your hard work and achievements.”In 1970, the national awards were introduced with two orders, the Order of Excellence and the Order of Roraima. Three years later, the Order of Service was created.Back in 2018, 49 persons out of the 96 awardees were women.In 2017, 31 women were conferred with national awards with Cummings-Edwards, leading the list at that time.In October 2016, a total of 86 individuals were conferred with awards. Additionally, 12 groups were conferred with the MS insignia on the occasion of Guyana’s 46th Republic Anniversary in February, earlier that year.

Labour Senator for Donegal Jimmy Harte has hit back at claims by Sinn Fein Councillor Mick Quinn that the government is attacking elderly people in Donegal.Senator Jimmy Harte“Sinn Fein are busy making calculations to score political points, and claiming to stand up for elderly people in Donegal. Yet their clever statements neglect the important fact that they are in government across the border in Northern Ireland, where pensioners receive no telephone allowance at all, and other social welfare entitlements are far below the rate that applies here.The Letterkenny politician said he has friends and relations who live just across the border in Strabane where Sinn Fein are in government. “They are not entitled to any telephone allowance and Sinn Fein have refused and continue to refuse any help for the elderly who may struggle with phone bills in Northern Ireland. There is no Special Needs Assistance payments facility there. They are a right wing party in Strabane and a left wing party in Lifford.“By that party’s calculations, based on Donegal’s population, over 180,000 ( One hundred and Eighty thousand ) pensioners in Northern Ireland are waiting on Sinn Fein in Government in Stormont to introduce a telephone allowance. If Sinn Fein are so keen to make reap political benefit from the issue this side of the border, surely they must push for it in the North too, especially given the UK is not bankrupt like our country has been? Otherwise they are being partitionist.“Contrary to Councillor Quinn’s assertion, the Haddington Road agreement, brokered by Labour, cut politicians’ salaries by 5%-10%, while unvouched expenses have been abolished.“In a difficult Budget for an unfortunately bankrupt country slowly getting back to health, we still managed to maintain the State Pension for older people at current levels, while the Free Travel scheme, the Free TV Licence, the Electricity/Gas Allowance and the Fuel Allowance have all been maintained at current levels, thanks to Labour’s input at government. “I am sure Sinn Fein will be writing to the pensioners in Strabane and the other 180,000 odd in N Ireland to explain why they are against a telephone allowance there” HARTE URGES SF TO STOP OUT OF BOTH SIDES OF THEIR MOUTH was last modified: November 13th, 2013 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:jimmy hartelabourphone allowanceSinn Fein
… The average age of both the Warriors’ active roster and starting lineup was 23 years old.Call them the Baby Dubs.Related Articles CLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the photos or video on a mobile deviceSAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors, battered and beaten and down four All-Stars, had nine players in uniform for Monday night’s game against the Blazers.Seven of those players could be playing in the NBA’s G-League right now. And that’s a conservative estimate.
Former Mumbai Congress president Sanjay Nirupam on Thursday said it would be a mistake if his party joins the Shiv Sena-led government being planned in Maharashtra. The former MP said the move would mean the beginning of the Congress’s burial in Maharashtra.The former MP appealed to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi against coming under pressure in this regard. To prove his point, Mr. Nirupam said the Congress had committed the mistake of joining hands with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Uttar Pradesh a few years ago, and ended up losing ground in such a manner that it has still not recovered.The leaders of the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) held a series of meetings in Delhi to finalise the decision to team up with the Sena to form a government in Maharashtra. While the meeting with the Sena is planned on Friday, sources indicate that leaders of both parties have agreed to finalise government formation with the Sena.‘Repeating mistake’“The Congress had committed a mistake by joining hands with the BSP in Uttar Pradesh years ago. It failed so badly then that it still has not recovered. We are committing the same mistake in Maharashtra,” said Mr. Nirupam, who was with the Sena before he joined the Congress.“For the Congress to become the No. 3 party in the Shiv Sena government is like burying it here. It will be better if the Congress president doesn’t come under pressure,” he said.The Sena, NCP and Congress won 56, 54 and 44 seats respectively in the October 21 Assembly polls. The Bharatiya Janata Party, which emerged as the single largest party with 105 seats, is falling short of 40 MLAs to attain the majority mark.

The RAA278842 LCD video controller’s 4-lane (or dual 2-lane) MIPI-CSI2 input supports up to 1 Gbps per lane to interface with the latest generation of automotive cameras, application processors and graphics processors. The controller also supports a 150 MHz single-channel OpenLDI interface, and a variety of video interfaces and LCD panel sizes with resolutions up to 1920 x 1080. The RAA278842 is ideal for automotive central infotainment displays (CIDs) and head units, instrument clusters, head-up displays (HUDs), and mirror replacement display applications that are essential for the growing needs of advanced driver assistance systems.The RAA278842 LCD video controller has 10-bit per color processing built into the image enhancement engine to provide near-zero latency, high quality video. Its integrated video diagnostics detects if the incoming video is frozen or corrupted and can provide a direct path for the rear camera video to be displayed on the LCD. This significantly improves rear camera display reliability, virtually eliminating the possibility of a software related problem causing the rear camera video to be displayed incorrectly or not at all. And because some application processors take several seconds to boot up (depending on the OS), the RAA278842 can display the camera image on an LCD in less than 500 milliseconds, thereby addressing the fast boot requirement of many OEMs.The RAA278842 with MIPI-CSI2 output and RAA278843 with traditional BT.656 output work with the system’s main processor to monitor the camera and the video data coming from the SoC or GPU. After vehicle ignition, while the instrument cluster boots up, the RAA27884x controller can display the carmaker’s logo or live camera video. The controller’s on-screen display feature can also simulate traditional tell-tale warning lamp checks in an instrument cluster application. Both controllers enable compliance with the FMVSS-111 safety law requiring the blind spot area behind the vehicle is displayed in less than two seconds after the driver places the vehicle in reverse gear.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components
