Justice Ja’neh Returns to Supreme Court

first_imgAssociate Justice Kabineh M. Ja’neh fate to be decided on Thursday, February 14, 2019.Months after majority members of the House of Representatives unanimously voted to impeach Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh, he is back at work on the Supreme Court Bench. He had earlier recused himself from sitting on the case following his filing of a Writ of Prohibition before the Supreme Court. In the wake of his recusal an ad hoc Justice, Boima Kontoe, was appointed to replace him. However, his Writ of prohibition against the House of Representatives   was denied but nevertheless, Ja’neh is now back at work on the Supreme Court Bench.Justice Ja’neh yesterday was seated on the bench of the Supreme Court along with three of the five justices that included Chief Justice Francis Saye Korkpor, Justices Joseph Nagbe and Sie-A- Nyene G. Yuoh that entertained final arguments into a complaint filed by some 500 redundant employees of the Liberia Petroleum Refining Company (LPRC) to review the judgment of the National Labour Court.The employees had earlier filed an “Action of Unfair Labor Practices “against the LPRC, but the court ruled in favor of the LPRC.In the lawyers’ petition to impeach Justice Ja’neh, they accused him of both allegedly “committing serious official misconduct by engaging in a wanton and unsavory exercise of his judicial discretion far exceeding the bounds of elementary judicial interpretation of issues simply to satisfy his personal ego.”The lawmakers also sought to impeach Ja’neh for what they termed as “proved misconduct, gross breach of duty, inability to perform the functions of his office by allegedly allowing justice to be served where it belongs no matter the status of the party affected.”They reached the decision on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, following the submission of an ad-hoc committees report to its plenary. Plenary is the highest decision-making body of the Legislature.Both Representatives Acarous Gray (District 8, Montserrado County) and Thomas Fallah (District 5, Montserrado County) were said to be advocates of the petition.The status of the impeachment remains a mystery, although the matter was since transferred to the Senate to commence Ja’neh’s impeachment trial.At yesterday’s hearing, Ja’neh was seen actively participating in the arguments and was also spotted on numerous occasions holding discussions with Chief Justice Korkpor, who in recent times had appeared to have been one of the justices that was behind his impeachment.Ruling on the matter yesterday was later postponed to an unannounced date by the Chief Justice. Ja’neh is one of the Supreme Court’s oldest justices and has previously survived an impeachment.At this point it remains unclear whether the impeachment of Justice Ja’neh has run aground as his appearance on the Supreme Court Bench appears to suggest. However it may be recalled that on Tuesday, July 17, 2018, the Petition for a Bill of Impeachment together with a motion proffered by Grand Kru County District #1 Representative Nathaniel Barway, received a favorable vote in the House of Representatives. Shortly afterward, Speaker Chambers set up an 8-man Ad-Hoc Committee to review the Impeachment Bill as well as the write-up of the proceedings.That committee was given three weeks as of July 17, 2018, to begin work and report to Plenary. The committee is chaired by Gbarpolu County District #2 Representative Kannie Wesso and co-chaired by Bong County District #5 Representative Edward Karfiah.Others were Representatives Dickson Seboe of District 16, Montserrado County; Jeremiah Koung of District 1, Nimba County; Dr. Isaac Roland of District 3, Maryland County; Clarence Gahr of District 5, Margibi County; and Rustonlyn S. Dennis of District 4, Montserrado County.While waiting for the expiration of the three-week ultimatum for Speaker Chambers to start Justice Ja’neh’s impeachment debate, Justice Yuoh mandated them to stay all further proceedings in the matter.On July 17, 2018, a petition signed by the acting chairman of the CDC in the House of Representatives for Montserrado County, Rep. Thomas P. Fallah of District #5, and Rep. Acarous Gray of District #8, a staunched member of the CDC, called for Justice Ja’neh’s impeachment.The pair argued that Ja’neh should be impeached and removed from the Supreme Court on grounds of “proven misconduct, abuse of public office, wanton abuse of judicial discretion, fraud, misuse of power and corruption.”Article 43 provides that “the power to prepare a bill of impeachment is vested solely in the House of Representatives, and the power to try all impeachments is vested solely in the Senate…”The Bill of ImpeachmentIn the Bill of Impeachment submitted by the Special Committee set up by the Speaker, the Committee, among other things, found that there was probable cause for the impeachment of Associate Justice Ja’neh for official misconduct because his intention is nothing more than putting the House of Representatives at loggerhead with the Supreme Court and engender an unnecessary confrontation between both branches of government and maliciously expose the House to public ridicule.The lawmakers accused Ja’neh of stealing information (minutes) from a meeting held by an ad hoc committee chaired by Representative Kanie Wesso, Co-chair on Judiciary that drafted the rules and procedure that led to his impeachment.Excerpt of the Committee’s report: “Theft of records: The Special Committee found that there is probable cause for the impeachment of the respondent, Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh for reasons of officials misconduct because the records which were not in the public domain was attached to the rate of prohibition and as such he must be made to show how these records came into his possession.”The Bill of Impeachment also called for the suspension of Associate Justice Ja’neh from the full bench during the impeachment proceedings by the House of Senate but should be allowed his salary, benefit and other emoluments.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img Claudio Bravo Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is expected to travel to England on Thursday to finalise his move to Manchester City, according to reports in Spain.The Premier League side have moved for the Chilean after Pep Guardiola decided that he wanted to replace Joe Hart as his first-choice goalkeeper.The England international was dropped for City’s season opener against Sunderland and now the club have agreed a £21m fee for Bravo.Barcelona boss Luis Enrique was coy when reporters quizzed about him the Chilean’s future on Tuesday morning.But, according to Catalan newspaper Sport, the 33-year-old is set to fly to England on Thursday to complete a move to the Etihad.Barcelona had wanted to keep hold of Bravo, but Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s desire to be the club’s No.1 goalkeeper has forced them to reconsider.At 24, Ter Stegen is viewed as the better long-term option and as such he will become Barca’s first choice from this season onwards.RELATED: Sevilla plotting shock move for Manchester City’s unwanted goalkeeper Joe Hart 1last_img read more

Pettigo woman is ‘back in control’ after quitting smoking

first_imgSerena Gallagher from Pettigo is celebrating getting her one year certificate from the HSE Donegal Smoking Cessation Service for quitting smoking.The Donegal mother said she is delighted to be back in control of her life, being able to go to GAA matches and on holidays without thinking about her next cigarette.To mark World No Tobacco Day today (May 31st), Serena shares her journey on how she managed to do it: Serena: When I look back my life revolved around smoking. I got up before the rest of the family so that I could smoke, I would be looking at the clock to see when I could next have one. If I had a cup of coffee I had a cigarette.I used to be spraying perfume and rubbing on hand cream so that I didn’t have the horrible smell of smoke.Cigarettes owned me – after I made the beds I smoked, after I did the hovering I smoked, after the children went to bed I smoked.My husband Charlie used to get onto me about smoking and the more he went on about it the more I kept smoking. I had to decide that I was giving them up for me. No forceOnce I made the decision I went to see my GP and she recommended that I get support from Fiona Boyle from the HSE Smoking Cessation Service in Killybegs Community Hospital and I agreed to go along and see what it was all about.When I got there I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t being forced to stop smoking. Using the Smoking Cessation Service was the right way for me to do it as I was able to make an informed decision. Fiona caught me with the information she provided in a non-judgemental way.Serena receiving her one year certificateI wanted to stop and got the information on all the treatments available and the ones most suitable for me. I decided to try the tablet Champix and I found that they were really helpful and made quitting easier for me.Also getting my Carbon Monoxide level tested each time I went to the clinic helped to motivate me. I didn’t want to use the e-cigarettes as I didn’t feel I was stopping smoking with them.Breaking the habitThe information on the 5 D’s was great because they helped me break the habit of how I used to smoke Distraction,Delay,Drink Water,Deep BreathingDon’t dwell on itAbout 2 weeks after I quit smoking one of my children broke their elbow. In the past I would have automatically had a cigarette but I remember thinking at the time, if I have a cigarette the elbow is still going to be broken, so what’s the point.I now have more belief in myself and I feel that I can achieve anything; it was hard but worth it.My advice to others is get as much support and information as you can before you quit. Going to see Fiona regularly helped and she was also at the end of the phone if I needed her between appointments. I thought the patches were rubbish but after speaking to Fiona I realised I wasn’t using them properly and I should have been using another product like the inhaler or the mist as well to keep me comfortable when I was quitting.Saving money for what mattersI worked it out and I have not spent €3942 in the year since I quit smoking and probably more because I don’t have to go to the shops as often now. We bought a new car and I have had some dental work done which I didn’t mind paying for and I would probably have left it if I hadn’t stopped smoking.There is no ‘poor me’ this time which caused me to relapse in the past. My attitude changed this time and I found the distraction, drink water and don’t dwell on it worked particularly well for me. I don’t miss them at all and I am very happy and content and more relaxed than I ever was as a smoker.I would like to think that I will never smoke again. I can go on holidays and to GAA matches and it’s great that I don’t have to have a cigarette. I am back in control and it feels good.Where to go for support?HSE Donegal Smoking Cessation Service (12 face to face clinics throughout the county)Fiona Boyle 087 2514790 and Catherine Coleman 086 0492465Ask your GP, Practice Nurse or local pharmacist for advice.QUIT on 1800 201 203 or www.quit.iePettigo woman is ‘back in control’ after quitting smoking was last modified: May 31st, 2017 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)Tags:cigarettesHSEquitSMOKINGworld no tobacco daylast_img read more
