Eric Phillips justifies SARA’s role

first_img… says it will hound anyone who stole State assetsState Assets Recovery Unit (SARU) member, Dr Eric Phillips, said on Friday that the State Assets Recovery Agency (SARA) is not on a witch-hunt to jail any Opposition members but will ensure that all State assets are retrieved from anyone who has stolen.SARU member Eric PhillipsHe stated that whether the assets are stolen by current Government officials or previous officials, it will be recovered, adding that SARA was not being set up to bring criminal charges against anyone but rather that would be the job of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).“We are confusing the perception that a lot of the assets were stolen by people in the last Government, but in reality, the Bill doesn’t care who stole the assets. Whether it is former, previous or current, it doesn’t matter. Once you have stolen State assets, the Bill allows for the recovery,” he stated.The legislation envisages non-conviction based civil recoveries of property over $10 million with a 12-year restriction period and wide powers will be available to the Agency to be set up under the law to gather information.A number of persons, including Opposition Leader Bharrat Jadgeo, had publicly registered their disgust over the fact that the Government will be spending taxpayers’ dollars on a unit specially designed for political witch-hunting. Speaking on the issue, former Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, contended that it is clear the unit will be used as a weapon to “witch-hunt” the Opposition and any person who opposes the Government.“What else can be its purpose? After all, the Police Force has these very powers. Why else create a new agency? The answer is simple,” he said, pointing out that the Agency is staffed with persons who are politically affiliated with the Government.“This organisation does not. It is a political unit masquerading as a law enforcement agency. It is authoritarianism and constitutional tyranny. The first victims will be the PPP leadership and parliamentary Opposition. Its next victims after that will be the ordinary citizens,” Nandlall asserted.Dr Phillips, however, argued that the Bill is a standard piece of legislation that is used around the world to recover assets belonging to the State. “It is a standard legislation around the world and all we are going after are thieves. It doesn’t matter who they are. More importantly, we are not going to charge them, we just want the assets back. We are not criminally prosecuting anybody that is for the DPP to do base on what the evidence shows” he noted.He stated that the Bill seeks to create an autonomous agency that would not be reporting to any Minister. He stated that the employments of agents and auditors will all undergo public scrutiny, adding that the Director will be hired by a parliamentary committee that has Opposition members on it.However, the Guyana Human Rights Association (GHRA) has warned the Government against using its one-seat majority in the Parliament to pass the bill, fearing that without broad-based political support, ethnically polarised politics would live on.The GHRA recommended that the legislation be broadened from only asset recovery to a substantive inclusion of the goals of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC).However, Phillips maintained that the bill has received wide-spread approval and was reviewed by international agencies, the ABC countries, the attorneys locally and internationally, and a judge in the UK.“It has a lot of local and international input and it is validated in terms of its powers. We are after civil recovery which means that we are not into convicting people. We want to make sure that the State recovers its assets and it’s not about charging people criminally and putting them in jail,” he said.He added that due to its broad international scrutiny, analysis and approval in its development, civil recovery has been taken as an alternative but complementary to criminal recovery.Assets hidden abroadHe added that SARU’s goal is to recover assets hidden outside of Guyana, and so they will be working with foreign jurisdictions “because it is their law and their processes we would have to follow… so it would be in partner with investigations with both countries”.He stated that part of the bill talks about mutual legal assistance treaties and there are processes involved in many countries that define how this happens.last_img read more

Sacking Pochettino was ‘hardest decision’ – Daniel Levy

first_img0Shares0000Tottenham sacked Mauricio Pochettino after a poor start to the Premier League season © AFP/File / Ian KINGTONLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 19 – Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy says sacking Mauricio Pochettino was the hardest managerial change he has had to make, opening the door to a return to the club for the Argentine one day.Levy fired Pochettino in November after a poor start to the season, less than six months after he led Spurs to the Champions League final. When asked whether it was the hardest managerial change he has had to make, Levy told London’s Evening Standard: “You have to understand I had built up a personal relationship with Mauricio over five-and-a-half years.“It is not something I ever wanted. Personally, it was incredibly difficult, I told him that and he understood.“He’s been in football (a long time), he understands. It’s not personal and I’m sure he’ll come back stronger and get an opportunity to manage another great club.”Asked whether Pochettino could return to the club in the future, Levy said: “Why not? I don’t close the door on anything.”While Arsenal and Everton have taken their time in their search for new managers, Levy moved on from Pochettino to Jose Mourinho in less than 12 hours.The Portuguese has turned the fortunes of the club around, lifting them to within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea, whom they meet on Sunday.Levy told the Standard he had only spoken to Mourinho directly for the first time this season.“Many years ago, I can’t remember exactly, we were linked with him,” Levy said. “But I’d never spoken to Jose. We never had a conversation.“And his availability was totally unrelated to Mauricio, not connected at all.“I can’t remember when I first spoke to Jose, but once I made the decision in my mind we had to make the change, although internally we knew of more than one candidate who would have been interested, Jose was absolutely number one.”0Shares0000(Visited 16 times, 2 visits today)last_img read more

Bigger’s better

first_img“Stop!” she shouted all of a sudden. “The mirror’s gonna knock all your stuff off the shelves.” Our garage is big enough for her PT, a Lincoln Navigator and my stuff. But even folding the Laramie’s big mirrors back wouldn’t help. And, the cab is so tall that the satellite receiver node didn’t look like it would clear the garage door. Didn’t try docking the Laramie in the garage even when it was empty. The truck is just over 20 feet long and just over 6 1/2 feet wide. The cab alone is 9 feet long. It requires a new municipal code for jumbo parking spaces in addition to the regular and compact variety. Some of the diminutions even grew for the 2007 model year, which features what Dodge says is the largest pickup cab ever. Big sums up this truck. It’s got a big name, big body and big price tag. And the 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Laramie Mega Cab 4×4 is big enough to go just about any place. Except our garage, which was the first place I tried to take it. The wife snugged her PT Cruiser as close to the south wall as possible and started guiding me in. This Mega Cab option offers a super-size 143.2 cubic feet and includes the only reclining rear seats available in a pickup truck. They can tilt from a 22-degree to 37-degree seat-back angle. Shaq would be comfortable back there, too, with 44.2 inches of legroom, the most of any pickup in this class. The rear seats split 60/40 and can move forward and back. Up front the center console is the size of a small table and there is plenty of storage space. “The 2007 Dodge Ram Mega Cab offers the most interior passenger space, cargo capacity and functionality of any pickup truck on the market,” said George Murphy, senior vice president of Global Brand Marketing at the Chrysler Group. The Mega Cab is a comfortable space, too. Drive Time’s test model featured a DVD-based GPS navigation system with a six CD/MP3 changer. There was also an entertainment system in the rear seat and a built-in hands-free communication system. The leather seats are wide and comfortable. And this is a truck that can supply moments you only dream about. Mine came on the way to work one morning at the intersection of Corbin Avenue and Vanowen Street. A Hummer pulled up next to the Laramie at a red light. And I looked down on the somewhat startled passenger. But this is a vehicle that is more suited on a job site or ranch. The Laramie seems to have enough muscle for just about any task. This one, painted a distinctive electric blue pearl color, featured a 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel engine that can turn out 650 foot-pounds low-end torque when matched with a six-speed automatic transmission. In other words, you can haul stuff. The maximum trailer weight is 15,900 pounds and the cargo bed payload is 2,970 pounds. Dodge says this model also leads the full-size truck class with these numbers, too. Largest interior cargo volume of 72.2 cubic feet. Largest cargo volume behind rear seat with 7.7 cubic feet. Largest flat floor load area of 16.8 square feet. Largest rear door opening of 34.5 inches wide and 35.5 inches high. Largest rear door open angle of 85 degrees. No wonder we called it Big Blue. And it is getting some pretty good user reviews, too. “Love this truck,” Nathan from Lebanon, Ore., wrote on earlier this month. “I just returned from a trip to Elko, Nev., and pulling 11,000 lbs. over the mountains did well … At the end of a long trip you don’t feel wore out or beat up. Plenty of space for everyone.” The only thing he’d change? Give Big Blue a bigger rear end. (818) 713-3743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
