The mother of an eight month old baby boy who died as the result of drinking a “dangerous liquid substance” believed to be acid water, has been formally charged with murder and sent to the Monrovia City Court for prosecution.Defendant Decontee Garley was charged by the Liberia National Police (LNP) following days of intense investigation over the unexplained death of baby Devine Moore at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital.The incident happened on December 21, 2016 at her Jallah Town residence in Sinkor, Monrovia, according to court records.At Friday’s brief hearing, Magistrate Kennedy Peabody did not waste any time sending Decontee to prison because the crime of murder with which she has been charged does not entitle her to bail.Decontee will remain in detention while awaiting her indictment and subsequent prosecution. Mrs. Sienneh Juah, a social worker assigned at the JFK Medical Center where little Moore was treated before he was pronounced dead, alleged that the baby boy might have swallowed a “dangerous substance” leading to his death.Police, however, alleged that when Decontee was investigated she explained that on Wednesday, December 21, she received L$20 from her mother Victoria Garley, which she used to buy a doughnut for her child.Court records quoted Decontee as saying that after she bought the doughnut for the child, they proceeded to her bedroom to have him bathed.Decontee is alleged to have left the child alone in her room and went to her mother’s (Victoria) room nearby, where she collected a small bottle containing a liquid substance believed to be acid water, which she gave her son to drink, according to court records.After the infant drank the liquid substance, Decontee is alleged to have been so shocked by how profusely the child started to defecate and vomit that she immediately ran outside with the baby to her mother, Victoria, and her other sisters, who discovered that the child’s mouth was peeling.The defendant claimed that she rushed baby Devine to a nearby clinic in Jallah Town, but nurses there referred her to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital, where the boy was later pronounced dead.A medical report on the incident established that little Devine Moore died of cardiopulmonary complication of Toxic Ingestion, for which police charged defendant Decontee with murder in violation of section 14.1 of the Penal Law of Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

– arson suspectedBy Andrew CarmichaelA 78-year-old rice farmer of 135 ‘A’ Mibicuri South, Blackbush Polder, Corentyne is now contemplating his next move after losing an estimated $22 million in a fire which gutted his two-storey wooden and concrete home on Saturday morning.The house was occupied by Marvin Duncan, 78, and his 65-year-old wifeThe house on fire in Black Bush PolderClaudette, who operated a grocery store and liquor parlour. No one was said to be at home when the fire started, prompting the suspicion that arson may have been the cause of the blaze.According to Duncan, he and his wife had left their Lot 35 ‘A’ Mibicuri South, Black Bush Polder home at about 07:30h on Saturday morning and within 10 minutes of leaving he received a telephone call stating that his house was on fire.Visibly devastated, the man disclosed to this publication that before making his way back to Black Bush Polder, he made a visit to the Whim Police Station seeking assistance in making contact with the Fire Service but the closest one was not available. However, contact was made with the Corriverton Fire Station which immediately dispatched firefighters to the scene. They did not manage to save the building since it was already gutted by the time they arrived at the scene.Duncan estimates his loses at $22 million. The elderly rice farmer, who also owns a grocery shop in the bottom flat of his house, said the shop sold everything for the community and the parlor was popular in that part of Black Bush Polder.He is of the belief that someone deliberately set the fire to the three-bedroom, wood and concrete structure. Duncan, a rice farmer for approximately 30 years, noted that he suspected arson to be the cause of he and his wife currently being homeless. The elderly man revealed that he recently had a confrontation with an individual (whose name was given) about being a bad influence towards the younger generation within the village. He accused the man of providing illegal drugs to the community and confronted the now suspect about this issue.However, after the confrontation between the two, remarks and derogatory slangs would be meted out to Duncan whenever the young man was around. According to him, the young man seemed to be very furious while they were making their way out of the village on Saturday morning as he stood next to a bus shed.Duncan said from all indications the fire was started at the back of the building where he had a room with a bed. He is of the opinion that someone threw something flammable through the window which was left open.He further explained that they did not light the stove before leaving home.Reports are that the blaze was first seen in the area of the bedroom which also housed washroom facilities.Eyewitnesses say the fire quickly engulfed the building even before they could make attempts to form a bucket brigade. Reports are there were three drums of fuel which further assisted the fire.Duncan is bent on continuing his rice farm in which he cultivates 30 acres.He is currently preparing for the 2018 spring crop.The fire service and Police are conducting investigations.
Indian High Commissioner to Guyana,Venkatakchalam MahalingamBy Vahnu ManikchandThe outgoing Indian High Commissioner to Guyana, Venkatakchalam Mahalingam, is urging the country’s political leaders to heed the advice of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) and discuss the way forward for Guyana.At Monday’s post-judgement hearing, CCJ President Justice Adrian Saunders urged that President David Granger meet with Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo to come up with a consensus on the way forward and as such, postponed the date to issue consequential orders on the No-Confidence Motion to July 12, 2019.High Commissioner Mahalingam underscored the need for the parties to do as advised by the Court.“I’m sure the consequential orders are mostly going to be a form of direction for both the political parties. But the hint given is that they should sit together and they should come out with a consensus and decide what the way forward is. So, therefore, we would like both parties to sit together, as advised by the Caribbean Court of Justice, and decide what is the best way forward for the democratic process to continue,” he posited.Democratic processContending that his country does not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries, the Indian diplomat emphasised, however, that they would like for the democratic process to take over and finally have this issue, which has been languishing for the past seven months, resolved.“The Caribbean Court of Justice understands what has been going on in Guyana and they wanted to put both parties together and arrive at a consensus. I don’t know, if consensus is not arrived at by both parties, what would be the order of the Caribbean Court of Justice or what would be the direction in the end, but we need to wait to see… But I’m sure Guyana will definitely find a solution for its betterment,” Mahalingam stated during an interview with Guyana Times on Tuesday.Following the June 18 rulings, CCJ President Justice Adrian Saunders urged the two sides to meet to find consensus before last Monday’s hearing for consequential orders. However, President David Granger sent an invitation to Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo on Friday for them to meet after Monday’s hearing. During that hearing, Justice Saunders expressed disappointment that the two leaders were yet to meet.“These matters are of the highest constitutional significance… and it beats me that the Leader of the Opposition and the President, and their respective counsel, had not met to discuss the issues that confront us. Everybody says these are important issues but it seems as though the same degree of urgency and deliberation that are expected of the Courts, we don’t see them being reflected in the behaviour of the political directorate and that I think is unfortunate,” the CCJ President expressed.In fact, he went on to note that the case puts the Court in an “awkward position” since it does not want to make political decisions, but at the same time, it has a remit to ensure that the rule of law is observed. This, Justice Saunders noted, however, can only happen if the political leaders display a spirit of compromise and reasonableness, which would allow the rule of law to take effect.The CCJ President’s comments were made after Attorney General Basil Williams told the Court that President Granger had acted “forthwith” and invited the Opposition Leader to a meeting on the relevant matters in relation to the cases but that meeting was yet to happen. In fact, he indicated that the Leader of the Opposition was yet to respond to the invite.However, at a press conference after Monday’s hearing, Jagdeo called out the Attorney General for deliberately misleading the CCJ. According to Jagdeo, a letter was indeed dispatched to his office but stated that he was being invited for a meeting after the June 24 consequential ruling, with no date or time indicated.Nevertheless, a response letter was sent on Tuesday indicated to that Jagdeo is prepared to meet with the President “at any time and on a daily basis if needs be”.Last week, the CCJ ruled that the No-Confidence Motion tabled in Guyana’s National Assembly in December 2018, had been validly passed, and in another case, found that the unilateral appointment of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), retired Justice James Patterson, was flawed and unconstitutional.After the Trinidad-based regional Court reiterated on Monday that GECOM has no chairman, Government announced on Tuesday that Justice Patterson has resigned.The CCJ President had also noted that the appointment process of a new GECOM Chair had to be reengaged and according to Jagdeo, in the missive to Government, he is prepared to meet and address the appointment of a new Chairman consistent with the ruling of the regional Court on June 18, 2019.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsIn the survey, 87 percent of CEOs said they expected their sales to hold steady or increase during the next six months. That’s down only slightly from 88 percent in the previous survey in September. On the hiring front, 78 percent said they expected to hold payrolls at current levels or boost them. That’s up a bit from 74percent in the earlier survey. Meanwhile, 86 percent said they would hold capital investment steady or increase it. That compared with 85percent in the previous survey. One of the reasons behind executives’ good outlook is that they expect overseas demand for their products and services to remain strong, said the group’s chairman, Harold McGraw III, president and CEO of The McGraw-Hill Companies. Another reason: executives are not seeing a retrenchment by U.S. consumers, McGraw said. Still, consumer behavior is being watched closely, he said, because it shapes overall economic activity in the U.S. Health care and energy topped executives’ concerns about costs. “For the last four consecutive years, health-care costs, which impact virtually all Roundtable companies, have been cited as the top pressure. But now, with oil approaching $100 a barrel, energy costs have risen to the top concern in CEOs’ minds,” McGraw said. For all of next year, the executives said they expect the economy to grow by 2.1 percent, which would mark slower growth than forecast for this year. The White House and the Federal Reserve have lowered their forecasts for economic growth next year because of fallout from the housing and credit markets. The housing slump is expected to drag on well into 2008. To prevent these problems from pushing the economy into a recession, the Federal Reserve has sliced a key interest rate twice this year. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke hinted last week that another rate reduction could come when the central bank meets next Tuesday. The Fed’s key rate, now at 4.50percent, could be lowered by at least one-quarter percentage point, some analysts said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

WASHINGTON – The country’s top corporate executives foresee pretty good business prospects even as the economy gets squeezed by a housing collapse, a credit crunch, Wall Street turmoil and high energy prices. A survey by the Business Roundtable, released Tuesday, showed that most executives expect sales, capital investment and hiring to remain at current levels or even improve in the coming months. While the economy’s problems have caused consumer confidence to tank, the survey’s results suggest that corporate executives’ assessment is that the business climate remains generally healthy despite all the strains. The economy, which logged its fastest growth in four years during the third quarter, is expected to slow to a pace of just 1.5percent or less in the October through December period.
