CJIA deputy CEO sent on leave, released on station bail

first_imgThe Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO) of the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Corporation (CJIAC) has been sent on one week leave following the allegation of sexual assault by a concessionaire staff of a duty free shop at the airport.It was alleged that this sexual assault incident occurred in the office of the DCEO on July 30, 2018, while the duty free staff was in a meeting with him.The victim claimed that she was inappropriately hugged and kissed on her lips by the accused. In her complaint letter the day after the incident, which was seen by this newspaper, the woman explained that she went to the DCEO to have an issue with her boss’ vehicle resolved.After a commitment was given to have security remove the clamp on the vehicle, the woman said she got up to leave and the senior official did the same, but walked around his desk to hug her. She recounted that the act was “inappropriate”. She pulled away but the man allegedly kissed her on the lips.The victim said she immediately turned and headed for the door, but was intercepted by the by the senior official, who placed his hand on the door to keep it shut and then allegedly kissed her again, for a longer time.According to the woman, she left afterward in shock and was so upset about the incident that she vomited all day.The woman had reported the matter to the airport’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and the Human Resources Manager and she was assured that the matter would be investigated.However, months have passed and she had not heard anything; after enquiring recently, she received a WhatsApp message stating that the issue was “addressed” but with no details about any actions being taken.When further questions posed to the airport heads went unanswered, the woman reported the matter at the Timehri Police Station. The incident was subsequently reported in the mediaAs a result, the airport pass of the concessionaire staff was revoked last week.In a subsequent statement earlier this week, the CJIAC confirmed that a senior official was being investigated for sexual misconduct and was sent on administrative leave on Tuesday pending the outcome of a new investigation into the complaint.A police source confirmed that the official has been placed on $20,000 station bail as they continue to investigate the matter.Meanwhile, efforts to contact the Chief Executive Officer and the Human Resources Manager for a comment on the matter proved futile.last_img read more

FOOTBALL: DOWNTOWN UNITED 2 RAMELTON MARINERS 0

first_imgDowntown Cup Group CDowntown United 2 Ramelton Mariners 0This game played at Rabs Park Kerrykeel was a very tight entertaining match with Downtown coming away with three points in group C of The Downtown Cup. Both teams started brightly creating half chances early on but it was Downtown who got in front on fifteen minutes when Nial Bonner shot home from inside the box after a good cross from Steven Toye. Downtown with much of the play went close again when Toye shot from the edge of the box, just skimmed the crossbar. As the half wore on Mariners came back into it and went close on a couple of occasions. On thirty five minutes Downtown added their second Bonner was upended on the edge of the box.Up stepped Michael Doherty who bent the free kick around the wall into the bottom corner of the net giving the keeper no chance. The second half continued as the first with both teams playing some entertaining football. Ramelton Mariners had most of the possession pressing hard looking for the way back into the game but Downtown stood firm with Charlie Creevy and Michael Doherty in control in the centre of midfield and Gio Peoples and Redmond Doherty marshalling the back line well. Best for Downtown ; Gio Peoples, Michael Doherty, Niall Bonner Beat for Ramelton : Team Performances:  FOOTBALL: DOWNTOWN UNITED 2 RAMELTON MARINERS 0 was last modified: January 13th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:FOOTBALL: DOWNTOWN UNITED 2 RAMELTON MARINERS 0last_img read more

GAA CHAMPIONSHIP SAGA: ULSTER COUNCIL RULES IN FAVOUR OF NAOMH CONAILL

first_imgTHE Ulster Council of the GAA has ruled in favour of Naomh Conaill after the club appealed a decision by the Donegal county board not to order a replay of their semi-final against Glenswilly.The Glenties-based club said they were ‘delighted to have been vindicated’ but won’t comment further until the full judgement has been received.Naomh Conaill had objected to the result after their two point loss in October on the grounds that Glenswilly’s Ciaran Bonner should have been red-carded during the match. He had already been given a yellow card earlier in the match and was then given a black card which meant he could be replaced by a substitute.The Donegal County Board had rejected the appeal, so Naomh Conaill took their case to Ulster. However the provincial body refused to make a ruling, saying there were errors in the paperwork.Naomh Conaill then took the case to Croke Park who ruled that Ulster should take a decision.The Glenties-based club had insisted all along that it did not want to interfere with the county final which St Eunan’s won.  GAA CHAMPIONSHIP SAGA: ULSTER COUNCIL RULES IN FAVOUR OF NAOMH CONAILL was last modified: December 17th, 2014 by John2Share 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:appealGAAglenswillyGlentiesNaomh Conailllast_img read more

MALIN RECORD EXCELLENT WIN OVER NAOMH COLMCILLE IN TOM FARREN MEMORIAL CUP

first_imgTOM FARREN MEMORIAL CUP                                                                                                               Malin 0-14 Naomh Colmcille 1-09                                                                                      Malin continued the preparations for the new season with another victory in the Tom Farren Memorial Cup played in a bitterly cold but dry Connolly Park on Saturday evening. Jason Doherty had Malin ahead from the off when he turned sharply before slotting over from 30 yards. Paul Friel from Naomh Colmcille had the earliest of early baths when he was black carded on two minutes. Daniel Clarke got on the scoresheet for the vistors with a free from a tight angle before Jason Doherty drilled over the bar for Malin. Stephen Gallagher goaled on seven minutes for the men from Newtown after his rasping shot was saved but managed to trickle towards the line where Michael Lynch was on hand to punch in, and while there may be debate whoever had the last touch, the green flag was raised as Naomh Colmcille pushed ahead. They extended their lead with a Lynch 45’ and a Conor Grant point. Malin stayed in touch with an Anthony Kelly free midway through the half. Gerard Curran pointed an awkward looking score maybe off his weaker foot to keep the visitors four ahead. Kieron McColgan then swung over a good point for Malin after good work from the hard working Christopher McLaughlin. Paul McLaughlin salvaged a point after Jason Doherty’s goal effort had been saved and after the ball came back to the 13’. Daniel Clarke had the last say of the half when he tapped over a free to leave the half-time score Malin 0-05 Naomh Colmcille 1-05. Michael Devine opened the scoring after the break with a lovely score off the outside of his boot from out on the right after Conor Grant had done well to tee him up. Malin then managed to come from four behind to level with Anthony Kelly hitting over four frees, two of them won by Paul McLaughlin and two won by substitute John Gerard McDermott. Ryan McErlane then scored an impressive point for Naomh Colmcille after a good run from midfield. Darren McLarkey replied for the hosts when he scored a nice point with a left footed effort from the centre 30 yards out. Kelly, the joint manager along with Terence Coulhoun, then put Malin ahead with another free, this time from distance, well outside the 45’. Clarke responded with a free of his own shortly after when McErlane had been fouled. Kelly scored his seventh of the day from around the ‘D’ after the ball was adjudged to have been touched on the ground. Paul McLaughlin extended that lead shortly after, when seemingly out of options, he decided to try his luck from range and his driven effort crept over the bar. John Gerard McDermott followed up this good score with another when he managed to find space on the left and drove over with his right. Michael Devine showed again his impressive free taking from the ground with another long range free to pull one back but the final whistle went and Malin led 0-14 Naomh Colmcille 1-09.                               Malin Team and scorers: Sean O’Donnell, Michael McLaughlin, Conor Farren, Conor Byrne, Kieron McColgan (0-01), Gary Farren, Paul McLaughlin (0-02), Anthony Kelly (0-07), Dan McDaid, Darren McLarkey (0-01), Jason Doherty (0-02), Seamus Doherty, Danny McCarron, Christopher Doherty and Christopher McLaughlin.

The striker’s contract runs until 2020 with the Old Trafford club having the option to extend that by a further year. However, the agreement of any new deal would be dependent on Rashford being convinced he could develop and thrive at his boyhood club, for whom he has started just five Premier League games this season. Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade targets three-way race Everton and England no.1 Jordan Pickford is a target for Manchester United, who would reportedly have to hand over £60m Milan Skriniar (Inter)Another defender on the Mourinho radar is Inter star Skriniar. Considered one of the best defenders in Serie A, United reportedly had a previous bid of £53m for the 23-year-old rejected. Inter are keen to persuade the defender to sign a new contract, with Skriniar’s agent, Karol Csonto quoted as saying: “We’re talking about it. We’re working on it.“It’s a subject we’ll be facing more intensively over the next few months. He is happy with the Nerazzurri shirt, he is playing well, but he is aware there are some difficulties in Serie A.” According to Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy, United could face competition from Barcelona for the Slovakia international’s signature. His manager, Luciano Spalletti recently joked the player is worth more than  €100 million “If it’s Barcelona, they will have to pay €100m and if I am them I would pay a €20m tip on top,” he said after a commanding display against the Spanish side. “And if I’m Real Madrid, the [€100m] with a €40m tip — that is how highly I rate Skriniar.” Skriniar is said to be happy in Milan, but has many admirers across Europe, including Man United Marcus Rashford came through the ranks at Manchester United and is now one of a number of players being watched by Italian giants Juventus 5 Paul PogbaThe midfielder wants to leave United and rejoin Juventus, the club he left Old Trafford for in 2016, according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport. A poor relationship between the player and Jose Mourinho has seen Pogba clash with his manager on more than one occassion this season and they were caught on camera having an argument on the training pitch. Barcelona were linked with Pogba – who has been non-committal about his Premier League future – in the summer, but Juve may feel they could pip their European rivals.

Pellegrini has a £27million release clause in his contract and United would be more than happy to activate it. The 22-year-old has two goals and five assists in 12 matches this season.Jordan Pickford (Everton)Mourinho is said to be an admirer of the Everton goalkeeper who starred at the World Cup for England as he helped them reach the semi-final. He has taken that excellent form into the new season and with David de Gea seemingly reluctant to sign a new contract at the club, United see Pickford as the ideal replacement, but would have to part with £60m to get him, report the Sun.
