Surveyors, Courts, Blamed for Illegal Land Sales

first_imgWhile Land Authority Chair, Dr. Cecil O. Brandy (pictured) blames surveyors for illegal land sales, the surveyors blame the courts.The President of the Association of Professional Surveyors of Liberia (APLSUL) yesterday claimed that the courts are also responsible for the illegal sale of land in the country. Josephus Burgess’ statement comes against allegations that surveyors are the main culprits in the illegal sale of land in Liberia.Speaking at the opening of a three-day symposium on the Land Tenure System of Liberia, Burgess said, “There is an allegation that surveyors are the principal cause of all land conflict in the country,” a statement he argued “is far from the reality.”The symposium was organized by the USAID-Land Governance Support Activity (LGSA).“Which category will you then place the so-called emerging owners with fabricated certified copy deeds to which originals you cannot find, and therefore are hardly substantiated?” Burgess asked his audience yesterday.He also argued that the courts continue to issue multiple Letters of Administration, even without verifying the existence, condition or status of the property, “Let alone observing the lifespan of such letters.”He said, “all Liberians need is to work together for a successful land administration system that will respond positively to the security of tenure of the land tenure system of our country,” adding that the symposium purposed to critically and technically discuss problems affecting the land tenure system in the country.In his remarks, Dr. Cecil Brandy, chairman of the Liberia Land Authority (LAA), however, put the illegal sale of land on surveyors.“By ethics, it is the responsibility of the surveyors to provide proper information to the seller and buyer of a piece of land.“You have to do due diligence whenever you are called to survey land; you own the work and you have the deed so you have to facilitate its sale,” the LLA chair noted.“You have to say whether or not the land has been sold or it is restricted from being sold, or had been criminally conveyed, because you are the first line in the sale of land in this country.“You are to protect the rule of law and make sure that every transaction is backed by the required law, so as to avoid potential land conflict 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

Relatives of murdered Sisters Village pensioner seek answers

first_img… after only 1 of 2 identified attackers arraignedAlmost two months after a Sisters Village, West Bank Demerara (WBD) pensioner was beaten and later died, his relatives are crying for justice, questioning why Police only instituted a murder charge against one man, when at least two attackers were identified. Seventy-one-year-old pensioner, Jerry Rambeer, was found lying in an unconscious state on July 1, 2018 at Back Street, Good Intent, WBD, but took his last breath on July 3 while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital.

The pensioner’s brother, Ricky Rambeer told Guyana Times on Wednesday that they were going to hire lawyers to fight their case but were reportedly advised to keep checking with Police as the file was reportedly sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for directions on whether or not the relative of the accuse would also be charged.“No one man can’t beat me brother; he is a strong man. The Police prepare a file with statements and witnesses; it gone to the DPP about five weeks now and up to today, the file can’t come back,” the younger brother claimed.Rambeer said he asked the Police last week and they reportedly told him that the file was still with the DPP. Guyana Times contacted Police on Wednesday to ascertain the position of the file but was referred to Divisional Commander Rishi Dass. However, efforts to contact him were unsuccessful on Wednesday afternoon.Rameshwar, 23, was arrested at an operation in Diamond, East Bank Demerara and reportedly confessed to hitting Rambeer to the head with a rolling pin during an argument.They were all at wedding house in La Retraite before then.The DPP later advised that the suspect be charged with the capital offence of murder.

Mbappe scores and sees red as PSG beat Nimes

first_img0Shares0000Kylian Mbappe scored PSG’s third goal before he saw red © AFP / Pascal GUYOTPARIS, France, Sep 1 – Kylian Mbappe scored the decisive goal but was later sent off as Paris Saint-Germain survived a major scare, and the concession of a VAR-awarded penalty, to win 4-2 at Nimes in Ligue 1 on Saturday.Neymar and Angel di Maria, the latter direct from a corner, had PSG two goals up at the Stade des Costieres, only for their newly-promoted opponents to haul themselves level heading into the final 20 minutes. But Mbappe struck in the 77th minute, his fourth goal in three appearances since winning the World Cup, to break Nimes hearts before Edinson Cavani completed the scoring in injury time.However, there was still time for Mbappe to be sent off right at the death following a clash with Teji Savanier, who was also dismissed, in a remarkable finish to the game.PSG have now won all four Ligue 1 games this season under new German coach Thomas Tuchel. They are three points clear of Dijon, whose own perfect start to the season ended with a 2-0 home defeat against Caen.“It was a great victory. The atmosphere here in Nimes is crazy. The pitch was terrible,” Tuchel told beIN Sports.Mbappe risks a lengthy ban after his red card, but he insisted he had no regrets.“If I had to do it again, I would and I would apologise to all the supporters and to everyone,” Mbappe said, claiming the initial challenge by Savanier “doesn’t belong on a football field”.PSG, who will face Liverpool in the Champions League group stage, had been busy in the transfer market before the European window closed on Friday night, completing the surprise signing of Cameroon forward Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting.The 29-year-old joined on a free transfer after leaving English second-tier club Stoke City, and agreed a two-year deal to follow Spanish left-back Juan Bernat, signed from Bayern Munich.Neither player featured here, however, and Tuchel’s other summer recruits, Gianluigi Buffon and German defender Thilo Kehrer, started on the bench.Kylian Mbappe leaps over a Teji Savanier tackle but both players were later sent off © AFP / Pascal GUYOTNimes, the former club of Eric Cantona and Laurent Blanc, are back in the top flight this season after a 25-year absence and stunned near-neighbours Marseille in their last home outing.– Four in four for Neymar –However, PSG looked to be on course for a comfortable victory after Thomas Meunier played a one-two with Mbappe before crossing low for Neymar to score in the 36th minute.It was a fourth of the season for the Brazilian, and was followed before the interval by Di Maria netting direct from a corner, curled in from the right and helped on its way by the Nimes goalkeeper Paul Bernardoni.Nicknamed the “Crocodiles”, Nimes bit back after the restart as substitute Antonin Bobichon sent a first-time shot high into the top corner in the 63rd minute, and they were level soon after.Thiago Silva’s clumsy, late challenge on Theo Valls was not initially spotted by referee Jerome Brisard but he gave a penalty after consulting with the Video Assistant Referee, new in Ligue 1 this season.Savanier scored from the spot, and Nimes nearly went in front when Sofiane Alakouch struck the top of the bar.With PSG on the ropes, Mbappe rescued them 13 minutes from time as he controlled Presnel Kimpembe’s long ball forward and blasted home on the volley.All that was missing was a goal from the other member of Tuchel’s all-star front line and Cavani duly delivered at the death as he converted from a Julian Draxler assist.Mbappe marred his and his team’s afternoon, though, when he violently shoved Savanier to the floor in anger at a foul by the Nimes player, as both teams ended the game with 10 men.The 19-year-old, who could previously do no wrong this summer, will now definitely miss PSG’s next Ligue 1 game against Saint-Etienne.Monaco host Marseille on Sunday, while Lyon were beaten 1-0 at home by Patrick Vieira’s Nice on Friday.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Car dealer ordered to pay customer €17,500 for motor riddled with defects

first_imgA second hand car dealer has been ordered to pay €17,500 to a customer whose car was riddled with defects.Thomas Friel, trading as Modern Motors at Mountain Top in Letterkenny, didn’t defend the action when it came before Letterkenny Circuit Court.The court heard that John Patrick Gallagher, a pensioner from Dungloe, had spent €10,200 on the 2009 1.3L Vauxhall Astra in January 2012. However in March 2012 and again in May 2012 he returned the vehicle to the dealer for repairs under a seven-month warranty.Mr Gallagher told Judge John Hannan that despite water and oil leaks the problems weren’t fixed and Mr Friel had refused to give him his money back.He said gardaí told him in May 2012 that the car should be taken off the road.The following month – in June 2012 – Mr Gallagher commissioned an engineer’s report which found the Astra imported from the UK had a series of problems including: · warped front brake discs· it had been ‘clocked’ with the mileage put back 20,000 miles· it had been a company vehicle with visible signs of wear and tear· the car had suffered damage in a previou crash to the front of the vehicle· its bonnet repaired or replaced · a damaged cylinder head· damage to its pistons· battery was unsecured· the wiring harness was wrapped in insulating tape creating a fire hazard · the exhaust support bracket was missing· the centre pipe was the incorrect model· front tyres were prematurely worn due to poor alignment and steering.The engineer’s report valued the car at €500 for scrappage.Mr Gallagher told the court the car had been parked at his home for the past four years after Friel had refused to refund him his money.The pensioner said he was forced to buy another car for €1,800.Judge Hannan said most people would have considered the car ‘nearly new’ but it was clear it was not fit for purpose as advertised.He said that while the ‘buyer beware’ warning is valid, consumers shouldn’t expect this situation “if you are using a reputable dealer”.One the clocking of the car, the judge said: “We are unsure as to who is responsible for that but it is something the gardaí might want to investigate.”Judge Hannan said Mr Gallagher had been put through a great deal of stress and inconvenience and had been “put through the mill” with the added stress of seeing the car parked at his home for the past four and a half years.He ordered that Friel pay the pensioner €10,350 compensation and an additional sum of €7,150 for breach of contract, damages and inconvenience.He also ordered Modern Motors to pay costs in the case.The dealer was not in court for the case, a solicitor saying that he was ill and out of the country and not in a position to defend the case.Car dealer ordered to pay customer €17,500 for motor riddled with defects was last modified: October 6th, 2016 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)last_img read more
