first_imgThe Supreme Court of Liberia through Justice-in-Chambers Philip A.Z. Banks III has prohibited from taking office three more Senators-elect whom the National Elections Commission (NEC) declared winners.The Court’s Writs Of Prohibition were issued to Maryland, Grand Kru and River Gee Counties’ Senators-elect, J. Gbleh-bo Brown, Albert Tugbe Chie, and Commany B. Wesseh, respectively, citing alleged elections irregularities. The Congress of Democratic Change (CDC) Representative Dr. Bhofal Chambers complained of massive wrongdoings during the election in Maryland County. Former Superintendent Rosalind S.T. Sneh of the ruling Unity Party (UP), who ran for Senator from  Grand Kru County,  complained to the High Court of  huge election irregularities; while ex-Lone Star striker, Jonathan Boye Charles Sogbai protested that there was voter fraud in River Gee County.Earlier the Supreme Court prevented the certification of Senators-elect Cllr. Varney G. Sherman of Grand Cape Mount, Dr. Jim W. Tornonlah of Margibi County and Atty. Morris G. Saytumah of Bomi County.The CDC candidates Dr. Foday Kromah and Prof. Ansu Sonii and incumbent Senator Lahia G. Lansanna of the National Patroitic Party (NPP) are the petitioners.Up to press time yesterday, the three latest stalled Senators-elect and their lawyers separately held conference hearings with the Justice-in-Chambers.The investigation of election irregularities by the Supreme Court meant the six (6) Senators-elect may not be inducted as Senators on Monday, January 12, 2015, if they have not been cleared by the opinion of the Supreme Court.It may be recalled that last Saturday, the National Elections Commission (NEC) certified 12 of the 15 Senators elected during the December 20, 2014 Special Senatorial Election.The certification ceremony took place at the headquarters of the National Elections Commission in Monrovia.In his remarks during the ceremony, the Chairman of the Commission, Cllr. Jerome G. Korkoya, said the certificates issued to the Senators-elect are testimony of the Power that was transferred to them by the people of Liberia when they went to the polls on December 20, 2014.Chairman Korkoya said the NEC acknowledges the low turnout during the election and will take the necessary measures to encourage higher voter participation in future elections.Also speaking during the ceremony, the Vice President of Liberia, Joseph N. Boakai, expressed regret over the deaths of some registered voters as a result of the deadly Ebola Virus Disease in the country.“I kindly ask you to remain on your feet and observe a moment of silence in memory of those registered voters who did not have the opportunity to vote; Ebola took their lives.  So we just want to remember them with silent prayer,” VP Boakai stated. Vice President Boakai then cautioned the newly elected Senators to become useful leaders in the new Legislature.He also lauded Liberians, including both winners and losers, for ensuring a peaceful election, adding that it was remarkable to see the losers respectfully conceding defeat and remaining peaceful. VP Boakai has at the same time expressed thanks and appreciation to the international community and other partners, on behalf of the Government of Liberia, for standing by the country and its citizens during the Ebola epidemic in the country.  Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgA two-day regional conference aimed at exploring the possibility of expanding the Phase 3 component of the ongoing Ebola Vaccines Clinical study in Liberia to Sierra Leone and Guinea opened yesterday, June 11, in Conakry, Guinea. A delegation of Liberian physicians, scientists, and clinical researchers will meet with their counterparts from Sierra Leone and Guinea to seek collaboration and cooperation on vaccines and therapeutic clinical trials against the deadly Ebola Virus through a multi-country regional strategy.The Liberian delegation is headed by Dr. Moses B. F. Massaquoi, Chair, National Case Management, Ministry of Health and Liberian Principal Investigator for the ZMapp clinical trial. The delegation also includes Drs. Stephen Kennedy and Fatorma Bolay, Co-Principal Investigators for (PREVAIL I), the Liberian Ebola vaccine clinical study; Dr. Eugene Dolopei, Chief Medical Officer for SOS Hospital and member of the technical team for the Liberia-U.S Clinical Research Partnership (PREVAIL); and Mrs. Wissedi Sio-Njoh, Director of Operations for PREVAIL. “This strategy creates an opportunity for current and future collaborations in transferring and/or sharing technologies on prevention, treatment and research among others to eliminate the Ebola Virus Disease and other related epidemics from within the Mano River Basin,” noted Dr. Kennedy.Representatives from the Ministries of Health of the participating countries, as well as partners from the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH), World Health Organization (WHO), the French National Institute of Health & Medical Research (INSERM), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC); and pharmaceutical manufacturers Glaxo SmithKline (GSK) and Merck/NewLink, are expected to be in attendance.“There appears to be a consensus that the window of opportunity is closing for potential answers to research questions regarding effective vaccines and therapeutic options,” said Dr. Massaquoi. “We believe that the development of effective vaccines and treatments for Ebola can be achieved through this sort of regional partnership and multi-country research collaboration.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgDonegal knitwear company celebrates 25 years global success of its ‘Fisherman Out of Ireland’ knitwear label!As chunky knits come back into style, we’re sure to see this label everywhere this Autumn/Winter. The company is helped out by Údarás na Gaeltachta’s enterprise development scheme which assists entrepreneurs by encouraging new investment in Gaeltacht areas, nurturing already established businesses, and enhancing the skill base of those living in Gaeltacht communities!Des Daly, manager of Bá Dhún na nGallBá Dhún na nGall Teo, a traditional knitwear company based in Cill Charthaigh, southwest Donegal, is celebrating the global success of its ‘Fisherman Out of Ireland’ knitwear label.  The ‘Fisherman Out of Ireland’ label was created by the company 25 years ago with the aim of supplying Irish made premium quality, knitwear.Twenty five years on, 70% of Bá Dhún na nGall’s knitwear products are exported to over fifteen countries, including Russia, Australia, Germany, UK, France, Italy, Japan, Austria and the US. Although operating in a highly competitive market and competing with low-cost manufacturing countries, Bá Dhún na nGall Teo has positioned itself firmly at the high-end of the luxury market with their ‘Fisherman Out of Ireland’ label. Supported by Údarás na Gaeltachta, the company manufactures knitted garments and accessories for the luxury market and is a subsidiary of the Blarney Woollen Mills Group.Working with designer Louise Elliott, the company uses traditional patterns and yarns such as merino wool, cashmere, mohair and alpaca to create stylish clothing which appeals to the conscious consumer and has a wide age range appeal.It uses yarns that are 100% natural and one of which is spun locally by another Cill Charthaigh based company, Donegal Yarns.Bá Dhún na nGall Teo currently employs 25 people and exports over 30,000 garments annually from its production facility in Cill Charthaigh. The company plans to further invest in textile technology and upgrade its production equipment over the next year.Des Daly, Manager of Bá Dhún na nGall Teo, says that the success of the ‘Fisherman Out of Ireland label’ has been made possible by hard work and a very committed workforce.“To be here 25 years later with a growing client list, is most certainly down to our entire team. Most of the employees have been working here since the company started and they are all from the locality. Without their hard work, our success would not have been possible.”“We have grown a very loyal customer base and get nominated for awards regularly.  We are seeing increasing interest from designer labels, which have an interest in partnering our ‘Fisherman Out of Ireland’ label under their own brand labels.” “We have worked closely with award winning designers such as Paul Costello, Paul Smith (U.K) and more recently Peter O’Brien to name but a few. Our garments and accessories are stocked in outlets as far away as the Blue Mountains, Sydney, Australia.”“With growing interest in our label from brands such as Prada, our vision and challenge for the future is to place ourselves in a position that Bá Dhún na nGall Teo, our employees, the southwest Donegal textile industry and the local economy can all benefit from securing partnerships with such well-known global brands and we are very much looking forward to celebrating more years of success.” he said.Údarás na Gaeltachta also offer financial and non-financial support to businesses such as Bá Dhún na nGall Teo , as well as supplying business facilities at a competitive price to businesses in various different sectors.Over 7,000 people are employed thanks to the Údarás na Gaeltachta scheme!

first_img Newcastle goalkeeper Matz Sels 1 Matz Sels is close to sealing a loan move to Anderlecht as Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez prepares to shake up his goalkeeping department.The 25-year-old Belgian is set to return to his native country just 12 months after heading for Tyneside from Gent on a five-year deal.It is understood an agreement is close, but that the paperwork is yet to be completed.A £5million signing, Sels started last season as Benitez’s first-choice keeper, but lost his place to Karl Darlow in September and has made only five appearances – all of them in cup competitions – since.With Rob Elliot now fit after a long-term knee injury, Tim Krul back in contention following his loan spells at Ajax and AZ Alkmaar, and youngster Freddie Woodman having played a key role in England’s Under-20s World Cup triumph, there was always likely to be at least one departure this summer.However, Benitez has already been linked with a series of keepers – former Manchester City man Willy Caballero and Napoli’s Jose Reina among them – and there could yet be further movement.last_img read more
