President Ellen Jonson-Sirleaf, in her annual message yesterday, admitted that in the past, the Judiciary was seen as a weak link in fighting corruption and the overall administration of justice.However, the President informed her audience that the judiciary has been demonstrating what she considered as “willingness” to enforce ethical requirements on all officers of the court, and are implementing guidelines against unethical practices.“Things are changing,” President Sirleaf said, adding, “The court system has been strengthening its presence in all of the 15 counties where they are settling disputes and adjudicating the defensible interests of all of our people.”As such, the President said many of the citizens are taking recourse to the courts than ever before. She said, compensation has increased, logistics have improved, new edifices have been built and old edifices renovated, thereby enhancing the overall administration of justice through the judicial system.On the decongestion of overcrowded jails and prisons due to pretrial detentions, Madam Sirleaf said, “a parole system has been enhanced and rehabilitation programs extended to give inmates a capacity to support themselves and their families upon release.”On the new jury system, she said it has ensured that the pool of potential jurors has been expanded to avoid “professional jurors” whose services are not compatible with the intent of the jury system.According to the President, Chief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor’s Bench has made several gains especially in the area of reconstruction of a new democratic governance model.“We have improved institutional capacities, strengthened the civil service, introduced wide-ranging financial management systems, built integrity institutions, and improved the administration of the rule of law,” she said, adding, “We now urge your action to secure land ownership rights for local communities across the country.”On her government’s commitment to freedom of expression and speech, Madam Sirleaf said residents and non-residents alike and the media enjoy unprecedented freedoms, sometimes without attention to the concomitant responsibility required by the Constitution and without a sense of patriotism.She said the free-spirited atmosphere that prevails is evident of her government’s unceasing quest to establish a democratic system of governance that is lasting and irreversible. “We must nurture it and not abuse it,” she warned, noting, “We must strive to build upon it; not seek to ruin it. It must be our task to hold high the name and purpose of Liberia for our collective benefit.” Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Senior Magistrate Leron Daly on Monday granted two men bail after they were jointly charged for breaking and entering a home in Region One (Barima-Waini) and stealing several tyres.Derick Persaud, 36, of Mabaruma Compound, Region One, and his alleged accomplice, Leon Singh of Kumaka Water Front, Region One, were charged with breaking into and entering the house of Earl Inniss and stealing seven tyres valued $140,000.Attorney-at-Law Adrian Thompson made successful applications for the men. While no facts relating to the matter were presented, Police Prosecutor Sanj Singh did not object to bail.The men were placed on $60,000 bail each. The case will continue on January 21, 2019.
Capital murder charges were filed Wednesday against Milton Montiel Gallardo, 25, who was sent to prison earlier this year for an unrelated car theft conviction. As part of his sentence, he was required to supply a DNA sample for inclusion in the state law enforcement database. Gallardo was charged with murder and the special circumstances of killing during the course of a rape and a burglary, making him eligible for the death penalty, according to Deputy District Attorney Jodi Link. He also was charged with arson of an inhabited dwelling. Prosecutors will decide later if they will seek the death penalty. Gallardo is an inmate at Wasco State Prison in Kern County, but will be returned to Los Angeles for his Oct. 18 arraignment at the Torrance Courthouse, Link said. Link would not comment any further about the case. Gallardo is accused of killing and raping 39-year-old Libia Cabrera, and then setting the house ablaze. He is the second person to be charged with Cabrera’s murder. Prosecutors originally filed charges against Herbert Gonzalez, but that case was dismissed after a judge determined that any statements he gave to sheriff’s homicide detectives were not admissible. However, during Gonzalez’s March 2006 preliminary hearing, details emerged about Cabrera’s slaying. The mother of two was cleaning the apartment in the 100 block of 28th Street on April 11, 2005, when she was killed. Firefighters called to douse a blaze in the apartment found her unclothed, bound and gagged with her neck slashed. Although Cabrera’s body was badly burned, a sexual assault exam showed she was raped and DNA evidence was collected. The fire – likely set as an attempt to cover up the crime – was started by a trail of clothes and bed linens that went from an electric wall heater to her body, an arson investigator testified. Investigators believed that Gonzalez was the man seen on surveillance camera footage walking around outside the building around the time of the crime. The last time he was seen, he was carrying a laptop computer bag. The tenant in the apartment testified the only thing missing from his apartment was a computer. The camera also shows a white pickup truck driving by several times. Gonzalez at first denied any involvement. However, he later confessed that he took part in the crime with his cousin – telling detectives he would say whatever it took for them to leave him alone. In July 2006, a judge ruled that the statements couldn’t be used against him because they were coerced. Link said she did not know where Gallardo is originally from, if he has any connection to Gonzalez or if Gonzalez remains a suspect. Gallardo’s theft case was prosecuted at the Norwalk Courthouse, Link said. It doesn’t appear from prison records that he has any other convictions. firstname.lastname@example.orgWant local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Denise Nix STAFF WRITER A prison inmate has been linked by DNA to the mysterious murder two years ago of a Lawndale housekeeper inside a Manhattan Beach home, prosecutors said Thursday.
“It’s the same pitches they threw me all year,’ said Vladimir Guerrero (through interpreter Alfredo Griffin), whose .206 playoff average after four worm-ticklers Saturday is the most shocking of the Angels’ slumps. “I’m just not swinging good.’ Guerrero insists he isn’t being limited by his nagging injuries. Is that supposed to be good news or bad news? It sure looks as if the Angels are psyched out by something, whether it’s the memory of umpire Doug Eddings’ game 2-deciding mistake at home plate or just snowballing self- doubt as winter looms one loss away. “You can see it (frustration) in all their faces,’ said Angels hitting coach Mickey Hatcher. “We’ve got to back off a little and bring it back to us. If these guys relax, we’ll be fine.’ But if the forecasts are correct, there’s a better chance of a ballgame getting rained out in Southern California today than the Angels getting to the World Series. For those who say they would rather watch the worst baseball game than the best football game, Saturday was the supreme test. Fans in Anaheim cheered USC’s desperate win over Notre Dame on the video screen before the first pitch, and those in the suites sneaked peeks at UCLA’s comeback against Washington State between pitches, and everybody tried not to nod off when the Angels came to bat. This started out way too much like the night before, when the Angels also trailed 3-0 also on a Paul Konerko home run before they picked up a bat. Friday, when the Angels never picked up so much as a pen in reply to Chicago, the players rejected the post-game interviewers’ suggestion that they looked a little flat early on. So it was interesting to read Paul rd’s lead on one of the columns the pitcher is writing for mlb.com. “We looked a little flat early on,’ Byrd began after Friday’s game. The writers, always so negative. It’s not that the Angels have been passive. As always under Mike Scioscia’s managing, they’ve been aggressive. When they’re going well, their free swinging and daredevil base running makes big innings out of little innings. When they’re not, that style kills them. They began Saturday with a grand total of one walk in the three games against Chicago starters Jose Contreras, Mark Buehrle and Jon Garland. That’s not all about the pitchers. Darin Erstad stood and watched four Garcia pitches miss the strike zone in the second inning. While stadium medics worked to revive the fainting patrons, Kotchman took two balls and hit a topper that Garcia threw past first base, and Bengie Molina drove in Kotchman with the Angels’ first base hit with runners in scoring position in 26 innings. Erstad’s walk was the Angels’ seventh, that’s all, in nine playoff games. Not that walks are a good idea or anything, but of the seven Angels to walk, five have come around to score. “They (White Sox pitchers) get early leads, and that makes it easier for any pitcher,’ said Kennedy, who’s down to .214 for the playoffs, which makes him Rod Carew compared to Chone Figgins (.114), Garret Anderson (.206) and Steve Finley (.150). “And we haven’t put on any pressure to give them reason to panic. “Four games against them now, we haven’t swung the bats well. We got away with it the first game.’ Strikeouts, weak pop-ups, 14-hop grounders. The Angels hit a couple of balls hard every night, just to tease. Erstad issued the customary, “This thing’s not over’ late Saturday night. But the Angels are, quite literally, not walking that talk. They’ve scored 15 runs in the past six games against the Yankees and White Sox. The worrisome thing is they went through seven such punchless stretches of six games during the regular season. They might like to think this is just a little bump on the way to the World Series. Instead they’ve been facing facts, they’re back in a rut at the worst possible time, hitting the way they did when we couldn’t see them getting this far.

There was no denying it in the silence of the home clubhouse after the Angels rolled over against the White Sox 8-2 Saturday night to fall behind 3 games to 1 in the best-of- seven series for the American League pennant. “A lot of the blame is on us,’ Adam Kennedy said. Not the umpires, though they continued to drive the Angels to distraction. Not just the Sox pitchers, though Freddy Garcia was the third pitcher in as many games to shade the corners of the plate for nine innings. It’s us. Their pop-ups aren’t even major-league pop-ups anymore. Their ground balls can be called worm-killers only at the risk of insulting the speed and fortitude of the average worm. It has reached the sad stage where you wonder if the Angels would have any offense at all if not for the reliable extra-base pop of Robb Quinlan and Casey Kotchman. The Angels have sunk from merely losing to the White Sox to being utterly embarrassed by Chicago’s pitchers, and have gone from tipping their proverbial caps in respect for their opponents to sounding like a room full of George Costanzas. It’s not them, it’s us.

The NFL’s four-game preseason schedule doesn’t carry much value these days, but the month-plus leading up to the first regular-season game — the practices, scrimmages, press conferences, and conversations that surround those four close-to-meaningless games — carries plenty of worth.The preseason — the whole of it — is supposed to clarify a team’s scheme, depth chart, and (in some cases) aspirations for the upcoming season.But heading into the fourth, final, and least useful preseason game …
11 January 2010 Three South African companies have been recognised for their impact on global markets by making their way onto a list of the world’s top 40 firms. They are mobile telecommunications giant MTN, energy and chemicals specialist Sasol and global services, trading and distribution group Bidvest. MediaClubSouthAfrica Free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service. The top-40 survey, released in October 2009, was done by management consulting firm AT Kearney for US magazine BusinessWeek, and looked at 2 500 listed companies across 18 countries. First on the list was Nintendo, the Japan-based electronics company, second was US internet search engine leader Google, while Apple, the US electronics and computer software firm, came third.Qualifying criteria To qualify for a ranking, companies had to generate at least US$10-billion (about R72-billion) in sales in 2008, of which at least 25% had to be derived from outside their base country. Companies were also judged on their five-year track record for sales growth and value creation. MTN was seventh on the list, ahead of the world’s biggest mining company, BHP Billiton, which secured 10th place. Although it’s an Australian firm, the latter has a strong presence in South Africa. Sasol, a multinational which produces a wide variety of chemical and liquid fuels, was 24th on the list. The company mines coal in South Africa and produces gas in Mozambique and oil in Gabon. It also has chemical manufacturing and marketing operations across the globe. Bidvest, which employs more than 105 000 people in South Africa, made it to number 37. “Recognition such as this is satisfying at this particular time as our people have performed exceptionally well in the face of extremely trying trading conditions in many of our key markets,” Bidvest chief executive Brian Joffe said in a statement. “This accolade reflects their resilience in tough times, their spirit of innovation and their ability to spot opportunity in adversity. The survey salutes the group. I prefer to salute our people.’ According to the survey, Bidvest is an example of an emerging-market company poised to become a global player. In 2009 the company’s total revenue topped about $15.39-billion (about R112-billion) drawn from interests in food service, freight logistics, outsourced services, industrial and commercial products, printing and related products and automotive retailing, said Bidvest MTN, together with its subsidiaries, provides a range of mobile phone communication services. It recently announced a groundbreaking partnership with an India-based company to boost content for its 103-million users in 21 countries, mostly in Africa and the Middle East.Winning strategies Some of the strategies of the top companies, said AT Kearney, were a commitment to innovation, diversified portfolios, aggressive expansion, strong leadership and a clear vision. BusinessWeek said technology and telecommunications companies are making great headway in global markets and they stood out in the survey. “[They] have tapped into continuing demand for mobile phone services and new digital hardware and services, as well as heavy industry and engineering outfits benefiting from the uptick in infrastructure spending,” it said.First published on 14 October 2009 by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.

The “Zwitch to Zoho” name might be cheesy marketing, but the cheaper subscription price is no joke. If you want more than 5 users, Salesforce.com will cost you $65/user/month. As of today, Zoho is offering an unlimited use CRM subscription for just $12. If you’re thinking “you get what you pay for” right about now, you’d be correct.Even the Salesforce.com edition limited to 5 users (for $9/month per person) includes support for Gmail, Outlook and Lotus Notes. The new additions and pricing plan for Zoho CRM include close integration with Zoho Mail, but using either Outlook or Gmail will cost you an extra $3/user/month. In other words, to get the full functionality of Salesforce.com, it’ll be more than four thousand a year, not the barely more three that Zoho is touting.Even if you won’t get quite the 80% savings that Zoho is proclaiming, its new CRM is still significantly less expensive than Salesforce.com, Sugar CRM Professional, or many others out there.
