Liberia, Cameroon to Establish Joint Commission

first_imgThe Foreign Ministers of the Republics of Liberia and Cameroon have agreed to work for the establishment of a Joint Commission for Technical Cooperation between their two countries.Liberia’s Foreign Minister, Augustine Kpehe Ngafuan and the Minister of External Relations of the Republic of Cameroon, Pierre Moukoko Mbonjo, made the commitment during bilateral discussions held at the Cameroonian Ministry of External Affairs at the end of the just ended First Ministerial Conference of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V), the conference was held in the Cameroonian capital, Yaoundé from May 4 to May 5, 2014.At the close of business, the two officials agreed that officials and technicians from both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Liberia and the Ministry of External Affairs of Cameroon will sort out the details leading to the establishment of the Joint Commission.The Joint Commission aims to focus on agriculture, education, forestry, sports as well as trade and commerce. The Foreign ministers recalled the historical ties and friendship between both countries dating back to 1919 when Liberia played a pivotal role at the League of Nations when German-Cameroon was placed under trusteeship and the 1960’s during the struggle for independence in Africa.The two ministers recounted the reciprocal visits of the late President William V.S. Tubman of Liberia, and President Ahmadou Ahidjo of Cameroun when they observed the need for stronger partnerships at the levels of the African Union (AU), and the United Nations as the effective ways to strengthen common interest at the global scene.Minister Ngafuan, according to a release, reminded his counterpart of the vital role Cameroon played in developing the talents of Liberians in the area of sports, specifically recalled Cameroon’s contribution in helping to mould the Liberian soccer legend, George Oppong Weah as well as celebrated soccer star, James Salinsa Debbah, and Joe Nagbe:“Cameroon was a ‘Mecca’ for Liberian soccer players”, he added.Minister Ngafuan used the opportunity to commend Cameroonian Ambassador accredited to Liberia, Beng’yela Augustine Gang for being an exceptional ambassador and a “true representation of Cameroon in Liberia”.The Liberian Foreign Minister also expressed gratitude to the Government and People of Cameroon for the successful hosting of the First Ministerial Conference of TICAD V in Yaoundé, Cameroon.He averred that the warm reception and hospitality Cameroon accorded participants at the conference made him proud as an African.Cameroon’s Foreign Minister Mbonjo, for his part, recounted the good works of the Liberian Embassy’s Minister Counselor/Charge d’Affaires, Siaka G. Fahnbulleh, Sr. which he said, have restored and rekindled the strong bond of friendship between the two countries.He committed himself to working closely with Minister Ngafuan to deepen and solidify the bilateral ties that have existed between the two countries for more than five decades.Sitting through the discussions were Liberia’s Minister Counselor/Charge d’Affaires accredited to Cameroon, and Cameroonian Ambassador accredited to Liberia, Amb. Beng’yela Augustine Gang.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

The court and political life

first_imgDear Editor,One of the main characteristics of a democratic society is the separation of powers. The three pillars on which it stands are the Executive, the Legislative and the Judiciary. In democratic societies, there are variations on how society is managed, but all free and democratic states are based on those separation.The Judiciary has particular importance, since it should be independent and interpret the law impartially and fairly. Thus the saying ‘Justice is blind’.When this begins to fail, people tend to lose hope and confidence in the ability of the State to protect their interests.Aspiring dictators tend to move to undermine the Judiciary in the process of establishing an undemocratic system.In Guyana, we saw this process first beginning slowing then picking up speed during the 1964 to 1992 period.First was the appointment of politically biased Judges who were willing to carry out the wishes of the Executive and to try to justify that in law.The other side of that coin was the removal of Judges who demonstrated integrity and independence and who fearlessly discharged their duty of upholding the law and Constitution.Some of those who immediately come to mind are Guya Persaud, Sir Joseph Luckhoo and Justice Vieira.After removing the ‘undesirable’ Judges, the People’s National Congress (PNC) regime then removed accountability by withdrawing from the Privy Council without leaving anything to put in its place.When that process was completed, the dictator did not even have to instruct the Judges which way to rule. Ashton Chase once wrote that the Judges began to anticipate what the dictator wanted and dutifully ruled in that way.Under such a system, it was only a small step to put the party symbol on the courts. The PNC’s flag was hoisted on a taller fly pole than the nation’s flag in the Guyana Court of Appeal compound. The Chancellors appointed by the PNC did nothing about that.We have come a far way since those days. The People’s Progressive Party/Civic restored the separation of powers. Moreover, it was Cheddi Jagan who insisted that the Caribbean Court of Appeal be established. He even threatened to return to the Privy Council if the Caribbean Court of Appeal was not established.Guyana was among the first countries to sign to make the Caribbean Court of Appeal operational. Now we are once again seeing troubling signs of a reversal or some setbacks in this regard.We find many important constitutional cases not being heard by the Judiciary. The first and most notable is the Elections Petition case of 2015. Three years have already elapsed and it is not being called up. Not even started. This seems to be deliberate. It appears that the Judiciary does not want to displease the Executive that is most likely in power due to fraud.A second case in point is the case as regards the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission. Many learned persons in the law are of the view that the present person in that post is there illegally and unconstitutionally.A case was brought to the courts to decide this. However, it seems to have been lost in the bureaucracy. This is another method of frustrating the majority of people in this country. But this is not all.On more than one occasion, the Communities Minister has been violating the Constitution in his appointment of some Mayors, and Chairpersons at the Local Government level. Court cases have been filed but that seem to be where the matters end. No dates have been fixed for the hearing.There are other constitutional cases that were heard. The matters completed in the court but no ruling has been made. These things are tied up in the court for years.In light of the above, one wonders if the Judiciary is taking orders or they are anticipating what the rulers want and are using their positions to deliver.I am appalled that the legal fraternity is so tight-lipped about these dangerous and ominous signs.If we contrast our situation here with Trinidad and Kenya where challenges to the elections were made, we see how expeditiously the courts heard the cases and ruled on them. In the case of Kenya, elections had to be redone.I wish to warn that there are consequences for every simple person in our country when these violations are allowed to happen.The experience all over the world has shown that when the Judiciary does not perform its functions, it leads to dictatorship in our political life.In economic life it leads to decline and even collapse. Things become bad and lines are formed for essential items like salt and toilet paper.Sincerely,Donald RamotarFormer Presidentlast_img read more

CRISIS AS TENANTS QUIT SHOPPING CENTRE IN RENT ROW

first_imgTENANTS of Letterkenny Shopping Centre have gone on a rent strike – furious that the moneybags developers behind the centre are refusing to negotiate rent reductions.Donegaldaily.com understands that some unit tenants are being forced to cough up a massive €100,000-per-year in rent.Proctor’s newsagents and one other outlet have already closed. But donegaldaily.com has learned that other tenants are getting ready to quit the centre unless rents are reviewed.The centre is owned by wealthy corporate group Harcourt Developments.Sources there claim some tenants had been involved in a rent strike and may be locked out of the premises in the coming weeks.“It may come to that,” said one Harcourt insider, when asked if more tenants could be evicted.
