Finance Ministry Contradicts Police Account on US$32M ‘Robbery’ Case

first_imgDefendant James Larmin Korboi, photographed before he shortly agreed to honor a foreign trip. A senior staff at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP), speaking under conditions of anonymity, on Thursday, January 19, contradicted police accounts that appear to implicate James Larmin Korboi, a Sierra Leonean national, in an attempt to withdraw US$32,835,654.14 from the account of the Manna World Holding Trust Fund to Liberia, believed to have been the custodian of the country’s road construction fund.The source said money for the funding of road construction is currently being managed by the National Road Project Office at the Ministry, contrary to Police accounts that it is being kept at the Manna World Holding Trust.The source did not say how much was in the account, but said, “we are not aware of Liberia construction funds being kept at the Manna World Holding Trust, because it was far from the truth.”A police charge sheet obtained from the Monrovia City Court about the Trust Fund, claimed that the Fund had over US$5.914 billion in its account for the country’s road construction and development initiatives.It was out of that amount of money that Korboi allegedly conspired with several other defendants to dupe the government of amounting to US$32,835,654.14. The document failed to give further details and the ownership of Manna World Holding Trust.However, Manna World Holding Trust is said to be an umbrella organization holding many other historic and heritage and assets-backed trusts.The Trust is said to be a holding company with over 4,500 accounts in it, most of which belong to the actual living people and groups of people and entire countries.“In fact, the argument can be made (and I make it) that all the holdings in the Trust are stolen goods from the dead and the living, too.“Those being responsible for the existence of The Trust reportedly stole what were allotted to them,” according to a David Robinson and Anna von Reitz post on February 16, 2018.Police arrested Korboi on December 5, 2018 in the office of Minister Samuel Tweah, where he had been holding a series of confidential discussions with authorities of both the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) and the Ministry of State for Presidential Affairs (MSPA), that led to his alleged attempt to withdraw US$32,835,654.14 from the account of the Manna World Holding Trust Fund.Based on that accusation, Korboi was charged by the police for criminal conspiracy and criminal facilitation, impersonation of officials, forgery and attempted theft of property and was subsequently forwarded to the Monrovia City Court for prosecution. Though the crimes qualified him for bail, he was remanded at the Monrovia Central Prison where he is currently starting a new life, because he could not file the required bond.When contacted at his Temple of Justice office, Magistrate Kennedy Peabody, who is presiding over the matter, said since the matter was first assigned before the Court on December 17, 2018, the prosecutors are yet to express any readiness about the commencement of the case.“I do not have any record to show that prosecutors had any returns to make assignment about the matter,” Peabody said, “I authorized the preparation of the commitment for Korboi’s imprisonment, but the government has not appeared for the case.”Details from the court’s record said Korboi had earlier introduced himself to senior staffs of both ministries as an executive member of Maga Strategic Partners Limited, a construction company.Mega Strategic Partners Ltd is said to be wholly owned by a Ghanaian private limited liability company, established in 2015.It is also an international company providing support and services to various institutions, according to the document.The record further said Korboi had come to the country with an unspecified amount of money to help support President George Weah’s Pro-poor Agenda, specifically in the areas of road construction and other development initiatives.It was due to an alleged introduction of his company’s intent to invest in the country that afforded him the opportunity to hold discussions with Finance Minister Tweah.The record claimed that, out of deception, Korboi allegedly manipulated the system through electronic means, and requested 13 transactions of transfer amounting to US$32,835,654.14 from several accounts belonging to the government, some of which were placed in local banking institutions outside of the capital.“The defendant criminally attempted to deprive the country of that money, but was aborted,” the Court record noted, adding that it was the first attempt by Korboi to allegedly withdraw from the Road Construction Trust Fund.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

GCB rehabilitates Parika/Salem Community Ground

first_imgThe Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) continued discharging its mandate of rehabilitating and developing grounds across the country by adding the Parika/Salem Community Ground to its list of beneficiaries.GBC Secretary Anand Sanasie turning the sod in the presence of Alvin Johnson, ECB Executive Member; Raywattie Autar, Vice Chairperson of the NDC; and GCB TDO Colin StuartThe GCB executives visited the ground on Thursday, as they partook in a sod-turning activity to signify the commencement of the development of the practice facility. Secretary of the GCB, Anand Sanasie, accompanied by Territorial Developmental Officer (TDO) Colin Stuart, commended the groundsmen as well as the members of the Parika NDC on the ongoing development at the ground.The facility, when fully completed, will be used by cricketers for practice as well as by the various clubs in the area. The Salem ground is also set to be the new home of the Essequibo Franchise team, with the entire programme being supervised by TDO Stuart.Sanasie further pointed out that the move to develop the ground is a necessary step towards enhancing the production, preparation and practice of talent emerging out of the Essequibo County. Essequibo veteran coach and manager Alvin Johnson extended gratitude to the GCB, on behalf of the Essequibo community, for the gesture, and hinted that within the next two months the facility will be up to standard.GCB executives and members of the ECB during the pitch assessment at the Salem groundAmong other ideas for the venue are plans to advertise on the concrete fence at a cost, which would bring in revenue to maintain the facility. Johnson further added that with the commitment of GCB, the facility will be equipped in a timely manner, and in return, the long-term commitment would be to ensure that the facility produces top class cricketers.The facility, when fully completed, will feature 2 all-weather practice pitches, which will be upgraded by the end of December 2018. The ground will also be enclosed with two practice net cages which will suffice for outdoor sessions.Meanwhile, the Salem ground is the second facility of its nature to be built in Essequibo, as the Anna Regina Hostel also has two turfs and two concrete practice net facilities.last_img read more

Mendacious members

first_img Tree planting plan Re: “Tree plan short on green” (March 9): Kudos to DWP Commissioner Nick Patsaouras for questioning the $100-per-tree cost paid by the Department of Water and Power with our tax dollars. It’s commendable that the Conservation Corps hire inner-city youth to plant trees. Unfortunately, trees are rarely taken care of once planted and the hundred bucks paid. My plan to save the city lots of money is: Money paid after tree has healthily survived a minimum of three years; plant only trees indigenous to our Los Angeles climate; strictly follow “Guidelines for Planting Native Trees” by Burt Wilson, Las Pilitas Nursery. If these guidelines are followed, $100 a tree will be a bargain, and we’ll all benefit from this miracle. – Bob Ginn Re: “Loophole for lobbyists” (March 9): Well, well. Why are we not surprised? Mendacious City Council members shafted us poor, hapless, ignorant sheeple again. Their dishonesty boggles the mind. – John Lynch Studio City Arcadia Take up a collection Re: “Tree plan short on green” (March 9): I understand commissioner Nick Patsaouras of the DWP is wondering where the extra money for the Million Trees initiative will come from. How about a collection from all of his employees who received millions of dollars in questionable payments for overtime hours not exactly spent at work? – Batia Atzmony Northridge Cost, not the value Re: “California’s is one of leanest work forces” (March 9): Ask anyone who has had to stand in line at the DMV or is put on interminable hold while calling a state agency if our state work force is bloated. The answer will be a loud “no!” The fact is that California has one of the nation’s smallest public work forces relative to population. The result is that state services have not been able to keep up with California’s growing population. The reason is that Sen. Tom McClintock and his ideological colleagues care only about shrinking the size of state government, not serving its citizens. As usual, McClintock knows the cost of everything and the value of nothing. – Steve Mehlman California State Employees Association Financial disclosure Re: “Rogue cops” (Our Opinions, March 9): There has been no statement or implication that we will do anything but comply with the consent decree. However, with regards to the financial disclosures, there are serious flaws with the manner in which this information will be stored and even more serious flaws in how they provide for the detection and capture of “rogue” police officers. No LAPD gang officer or detective has offered to ignore this element of the consent decree. It is just the opposite, when the financial disclosures are mandated, the officers and detectives will comply fully by leaving this specialized unit. Our collective years of experience and knowledge will simply be lost as we move to other areas of the police department or other police departments entirely. – Matthew Plugge LAPD Detective I Gang Impact Team, Devonshire Area It’s not a law Re: “Rogue cops” (Our Opinions, March 9): You should have paid attention to “School House Rock’s” “How a Bill Becomes a Law.” The consent decree is not a law; it’s an agreement between the feds and Los Angeles City due to allegations of excessive force, not “cops on the take.” So an officer who chooses not to submit the financial disclosure form will be returned to patrol. Officers who choose to reveal their investments will stay in gang or narcotics assignments. It’s that simple. Personally, I welcome the return of these officers to the patrol ranks as too few officers have carried the burden of responding to calls for service for far too long. That’s the real story. – Maria Acosta Lake Los Angeles Gang programs fix Re: “Hahn on gangs” (Your Opinions, March 9): With the second prominent gang prevention program in as many months being exposed as problematic, giving them more vital taxpayer funds is not the answer. City officials have far too long cried for more funding via taxes and bond measures and shown little results and even less accountability. Time has come for our city controller to show courage and begin a comprehensive audit of all existing programs related to gang prevention. Not one more dollar is to be spent or invested in a failed program. If you fail to be a good steward of what you already have, then you do not deserve more. – David Hernandez Valley Village Throw them out Re: “Old, tired dinosaurs” (Your Opinions, March 8): Jerry Pennington of Van Nuys stated that the low turnout for the local election was due to people not wanting to vote for “the same old dinosaurs” in City Hall, and that they have a worse record than the U.S. Congress in getting things done on behalf of the people. Well, Jerry, your statements point to the reasons why people should vote in these local elections. If you don’t like what your local council person is doing, vote for change – throw the bum out. Nine chances out of 10, you live in District 6, which should have been the hottest City Council race in L.A. Instead, only 5,208 people voted, representing about 8 percent of the 63,000 eligible voters in District 6. Even our incumbent council implied that the turnout was a disgrace. – Jack Golding Van Nuys What they preach Re: “Newt cheated on wife while attacking Clinton” (March 9): Just wanted to thank Newt for again proving that Republicans are the biggest hypocrites – talking the talk but not walking the walk. He joins the proud two-faced crowd of gay-bashing, young-boy-loving Foley, ethics in government but we love the dirty money Cunningham and DeLay, responsible fiscal budget spending unless it’s for our corporate buddies Cheney and, of course, the “Support Our Troops” but cut their medical care crowd, championed by King “Dubya” Bush himself. Nothing better than consistency – except, of course, having leaders who actually do what they preach. – Howard Barr Burbank Make them afraid Re: “Voter turnout is lowest in 24 years” (March 8): Rather than voters staying away from the polls, I challenge them to sign up for permanent absentee ballot privileges and mail in an unvoted ballot. Think about it. We could see 80 percent or more voter turnout but the underlying message to elected officials would be to stop playing around and solve real problems. Right now, the politicians know and count on low voter turnout. My plan, I believe, will keep them off-balance and thus force them to be more accountable to and wary of the electorate. – Ira Bland Tujunga Loopholes Re: “Loophole for lobbyists” (March 9): After reading about Measure R, I was hopeful that the people of Los Angeles would not vote for it. But they believed the League of Women Voters and voted for it. Now it comes out that there is a loophole? Well, who’s to blame? The people should get this proposition off the books and fire all the council members. Now is the time to act, and act in a proactive manner. Show the elected people that you are mad and want elected officials to work for you, and not the lobbyists. – John Archbold Canyon Country 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

From Keita to Jorginho: The 10 best Premier League debuts from the opening weekend

first_img NEW ERA REVEALED ALTERED Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes Naby Keita player watchKeita had a hand in the Reds’ first goal which set them on their way for the easy win.Joe Hart (Burnley)It’s been a difficult few years for Joe Hart but things are finally looking up after the keeper completed his permanent move to Burnley from Manchester City last week.And the 31-year-old marked his Premier League debut for the Clarets with a clean sheet against Southampton.He made two good saves to deny Jack Stephens and Mario Lemina in the second-half to ensure Burnley would leave the south coast with a point.Richarlison (Everton)Richarlison was a surprise star of the Premier League for Watford last season and if he carries on like this he will be one of the elite players in the division this campaign.The Brazilian marked his league debut for Everton with two goals against Wolves – the first being an opportunistic poke into the net.His second was nothing short of sublime. After some neat interplay with Cenk Tosun, Richarlison expertly used Conor Coady as a blocker before bending the ball round the defender and into the corner of the net. Jorginho slots home a penalty to set Chelsea on their way to a comfortable victory Six things we learned from the opening weekend of the Premier League There were also a few players who made their debuts in England’s top flight or debuts for their new clubs. Some were not so good but others impressed.But who were the standout debutants in gameweek one? Here are talkSPORT.com’s top ten performing debutantsJorginho (Chelsea) Keita was impressive form against the Hammers How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return? gameday Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Richarlison was the Toffees’ star player Tottenham v Brighton LIVE: talkSPORT commentary and team news for Boxing Day opener Riyad Mahrez (Manchester City)The Algerian has been City’s only noteworthy signing this summer so there is a lot of pressure for him to settle in quickly.But that was no such issue for Mahrez who looked like he had been playing alongside his team-mates for years.He was a pest for the Arsenal defence all game as he, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling looked like they were going to score every time they went forward.Kepa Arrizabalaga (Chelsea)Chelsea’s new goalkeeper will have more difficult days ahead of him but Kepa will be delighted to have kept a clean sheet on his Premier League debut.Kepa Arrizabalaga player watchHe did not have many saves to make of note. It was as comfortable a debut as the Spaniard could have asked for. 5 Raul Jiminez (Wolverhampton Wanderers)The forward has played for some big clubs including Atletico Madrid and Benfica but Raul Jiminez was making his debut in England’s top flight on Saturday.The Mexican’s late goal against Everton rescued a point for his side which could be an important point towards the end of the season.David Brooks (AFC Bournemouth)It’s been a busy summer for Bournemouth and they gave David Brooks the chance to justify his £10million price tag during their 2-0 win over Cardiff.And the former Sheffield United man had a solid Premier League debut, playing his part in a number of attacks for the Cherries.Manager Eddie Howe said he was “very pleased” with the 21-year-old’s performance and suggested we’ve only seen a glimpse of his potential.Alisson Becker (Liverpool)Much like Kepa, Alisson did not have a huge amount to do but he still kept a clean sheet.The £67m keeper had to be alert to save a header from Fabian Balbuena in the first-half but the most impressive part of his game was his relaxed demeanour which had a calming influence on the Anfield crowd. 5 possible xi England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won The start of the 2018/19 Premier League season was an action-packed one as expected.There were wins for all of last season’s top five while the same old problems for Arsenal were still on show. It turned out to be a comfortable Chelsea debut for Kepa smart causal How Chelsea could line up against Southampton – what system will Lampard play? He did look somewhat out of his depth during the Community Shield defeat to Manchester City but Jorginho looked much more at home in Chelsea’s 3-0 win against Huddersfield.The midfielder even got himself on the scoresheet – calmly slotting a penalty past Ben Hamer which put the Blues two-up.Jorginho combined well with N’Golo Kante and Ross Barkley throughout the afternoon and showed why Maurizio Sarri was determined to get the former Napoli man to Stamford Bridge this summer.Ruben Neves (Wolverhampton Wanderers)He was one of the stars of the Championship last season and it seems Ruben Neves knows how to handle himself in the top flight too.It’s hard to believe he’s only 21 when you consider how often he dictated the pace of Wolves’ 2-2 draw v Everton.The Portuguese was the main reason Nuno Espirito Santo’s side got something out of the game – scoring a free-kick and providing a wonderful assist to allow Raul Jiminez to get Wolves’ second goal.Naby Keita (Liverpool)There was a great deal of anticipation to see Naby Keita make his Liverpool deal as he agreed to sign for the club last summer.And it’s fair to say he didn’t disappoint – making a catalogue of dangerous runs with the ball as Liverpool were a constant threat in their 4-0 thrashing of West Ham. 5 silverware Latest Premier League News possible standings 5 How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures Champions Manchester City got off to a great start with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Arsenal Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? 5last_img read more
