‘Declare Your Assets’

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has expressed hope that members of both the National Legislature and the Judiciary will follow the footsteps of the Executive and declare their assets in order to promote transparency and accountability.President Sirleaf made the statement in the presence of Senate Pro-Tempore Gbehzohngar Findley and other influential lawmakers of the 53rd National Legislature when she signed the Code of Conduct Bill into law recently.The Code of Conduct is one of the controversial bills signed to date; it languished in the corridors of the Legislature for over five years. It was just signed into law by President Sirleaf on Monday, May 12, 2014 at her Foreign Ministry office.The Bill was submitted to the National Legislature in 2009 by the Executive Branch of government, and was passed by the Senate last year and sent to the House of Representatives for concurrence.The House of Representatives in March this year concurred with the Senate but with some adjustments. The law comes into full effect upon being printed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs into handbills and distributed for public consumption.The new law, which demands “integrity checks”, requires government employees’ activities to be conducted lawfully and in consonance with the highest ethical standards, with each employee acting with personal integrity as well as coming forward and raising concerns should they become aware of any questionable activity involving officials.The Executive Order, which has been issued twice, has been binding only on members of the Executive, through the issuance of Executive Order by President Sirleaf pending the passage of the bill. With this new development, the Liberian leader is now calling on the Legislature and the Judiciary to join the effort in fighting graft in the public sector.The Liberian leader, after the signing ceremony, pointed: “Since the Code of Conduct, which covers all three branches of government is now signed into law, it is expected that our colleagues from the other branches will follow the example of the Executive Branch to declare their assets.”She thanked the leadership and members of the National Legislature, however, for fulfilling their Constitutional mandate in passing into law the Code of Conduct, which applies to all public officials and employees of the three branches of Government.Article 90 (c) of the Liberian Constitution provides that “The Legislature shall…prescribe a Code of Conduct for all public officials and employees stipulating the acts which constitute conflict of interest or are against public policy, and the penalties for violation thereof.” “As the law requires, it now has to be printed in handbills to be fully effective; but with this signing today, we now go to the final step to have it printed and to have it distributed to the public at large,” the Liberian leader pointed out.President Sirleaf highlighted portions of the Code of Conduct Law that public officials and employees of Government must observe and become familiar with.She spoke specifically of Section 5.1, which stipulates that all appointed government officials wanting to contest for elected positions in government must resign at least three years prior to the date of the election.She also mentioned Section 5.2, which indicates, in part that, in case of vacancy for an elected official, any appointee of government that offers to take up such elected position must resign three months prior to the date of the by-election.Highlighting Section 9.1, Bribes and Gifts, the Liberian leader reminded public officials and employees of government that the Code of Conduct prohibits receiving or encouraging the giving of any form of bribe or casual gift in connection with the performance of his/her duties, whether for himself or herself or members of his or her family.She, however, indicated that this provision does not apply to gifts given during traditional ceremonies and celebrations, and fees paid for lobbying, adding, that the Legislature shall enact laws for the regulation of lobbying activities. “We will be coming back to the Legislature for them to fulfill their constitutional duties by being able to enact appropriate laws to enable us meet this provision.President Sirleaf also stressed Section 11.3 on Sexual Harassment, such as use of rude, abusive and obscene language, indecent dressing, and sexual gestures which constitute sexual harassment and violation of human dignity and human rights.Governance Commission Chairman, Dr. Amos Sawyer, said signing the Code of Conduct is indeed a legacy. “For you, Madam President, the Senate and distinguished Members of the House of Representatives, who have seen this through, this is an enormous historic credit,” adding, “the way in which it has evolved and come through our legislative process is a credit to all of us,” he said.When contact for comments, Maryland County Senator John Ballout said that it is a good thing for the President to call on the Judiciary and the Legislature to declare their assets, indicating that those purportedly come with clean hands should demonstrate that.Senator Ballout indicated that lawmakers, as representatives of the people, should lead by example. Though lawmaker declared their assets before the general and Presidential election in 2011, the Maryland lawmaker said it will be prudent for them to update their assets cause some of them have acquired properties while in office.He, however, frowned on what he termed as the difficulties face in declaring assets through the current procedure. He said the process is tedious and difficult because the questionnaires are too bulky and complicated.Despite the difficulties involve, Senator Ballout promised to advance the President’s proposal to fellow lawmakers as he has always done. He noted that the process brings about transparent and accountability thereby curtailing corruption.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Ronaldo a symbol of Real like Di Stefano -Zidane

first_img0Shares0000Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane places Cristiano Ronaldo on the same level as Alfredo Di Stefano © AFP / JAVIER SORIANOMADRID, Spain, Apr 10 – Zinedine Zidane believes Cristiano Ronaldo will be remembered at Real Madrid in the same glowing terms as Alfredo Di Stefano.Di Stefano was the face of Real´s domination during the 1950s and 1960s, when they won five European Cups and he scored more than 300 goals. Ronaldo is now trying to lead another prolonged period of European success, with Real gunning for their third consecutive Champions League triumph, and fourth in five years.They take a 3-0 lead into Wednesday´s quarter-final second leg at home to Juventus after the Portuguese scored twice last week in Turin, a double that included a sensational bicycle kick.Ronaldo already has 14 goals in this year´s tournament, three short of his best ever 17, which he posted when Real were crowned champions in 2014.“I do not think of playing without Cristian, we have him and we are happy,” Zidane said on Tuesday.“There are many people who remember Di Stefano, it is normal – many people, and I am one of them, will now remember Cristiano with this club.“We have him and it is necessary to take advantage of this. All the teams in the world would be happy to have this player.”Barring a huge collapse at the Santiago Bernabeu, Real will take their place in next month´s semi-finals but their domestic season has been far less impressive.Real sit fourth in La Liga, 15 points behind Barcelona, while a shock defeat to Leganes in the Copa del Rey means they have only one chance of a major trophy.“The explanation I do not have,” Zidane said. “Sometimes this year our consistency has not been very good.“We have had moments of difficulty, now we are better, but there is no explanation. If you ask me, I have more motivation than I can ever remember to win the league. It is the hardest thing to do, it is what the player wants.“There are difficult times but in the Champions League, when you look at the trajectory of this club, it is impressive and nobody has reached this level. It is what this club has.”Real have hit a golden patch in recent weeks, losing only one of their last 15 matches and scoring 20 goals in their last seven.“When we scored again, with three or four goals, you cheer up, you feel better, you have your confidence back,” Zidane said.“But it annoys me when people say we are favourites in the Champions League. We are a great team but we have won nothing yet.”Real will be without the suspended Sergio Ramos for the return game against Juve, meaning 21-year-old defender Jesus Vallejo could come in alongside the more experienced Raphael Varane.Varane insists he will not look to make up for the loss of Ramos´ leadership at the back.“My preparation for the match does not change,” Varane said. “I have my personality, I know how to guide my partners, to speak to the team.“But I will not transform into someone who will bark orders. I will do it with personality, as usual, and the important thing is that the team can rely on me.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Platini admits ‘skulduggery’ to rig 1998 World Cup draw

first_imgThe revelation comes at a time when Platini is banned from football for receiving a “disloyal payment” of two million Swiss francs (1.7 million euros, $2 million) when he was head of UEFA from disgraced former FIFA president Sepp Blatter.The draw took place in Marseille on December 4, 1997 and was presided over by FIFA’s then-general secretary: Blatter.“Look, we were at home, you have to make the most of things, we weren’t going to go through the bother of six years organising the World Cup if we could not pull off a few little tricks,” said Platini, a former midfield star for Saint Etienne, Juventus and France. “Do you think other hosts didn’t do the same at their World Cups?”A France-Brazil final “was everyone’s dream”, said Platini.Brazil were placed in Group A and France in Group C, ensuring they wouldn’t meet until the final, as long as both won their group.– ‘European conspiracy’ –Not everyone was happy with the fairly transparent plan, though.At the time, the selection process of top seeds for the eight groups had provoked accusations of a “European conspiracy” by then-Brazil coach Mario Zagallo.Following frantic negotiations behind the scenes, six European countries and two South Americans — Brazil and Argentina — were picked, with Africans Nigeria missing out.Ahead of the draw, Zagallo had complained that French organisers would “do everything to ensure Brazil are not world champions”, insisting the seeding process was fixed to ensure the Selecao would face two European sides in the group stages: they drew Norway and Scotland, as well as Morocco — a fairly easy draw by anyone’s standards.But their bitter rivals Argentina drew the only group with just one European team, Croatia, as well as Jamaica and Japan.France got Denmark, South Africa and Saudi Arabia, finished top and then beat Paraguay, Italy (on penalties) and Croatia on route to the final, playing both their quarter-final and semi-final at the Stade de France national stadium where the title-decider would also be held.Brazil won their group and beat Chile, Denmark and the Netherlands (on penalties) before losing the final 3-0 to France.While teams had been allocated to specific groups at previous tournaments, it had typically been to keep apart countries from the same continental federation.At Italia 1990, when there were just 24 teams in six groups of four, the top seeds were assigned in an way that kept Italy in Rome and had the added bonus for organisers that England, and their notorious fans, were isolated on Sardinia.England were placed in the “London group” at both the 1966 World Cup and Euro 96, ensuring they would play all their games at Wembley.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sepp Blatter ran the World Cup draw in the Velodrome in Marseille in 1997. © AFP/File / GABRIEL BOUYSPARIS, France, May 18 – Disgraced Michel Platini has sensationally admitted to a “little skulduggery” in rigging the draw to ensure Brazil and France could not meet until the final of the 1998 World Cup, where he was organising committee president.“We organised the schedule so, if we finished first in our group and Brazil first in theirs, the teams could not meet before the final,” France great Platini told Radio Bleu Sport in an interview to be broadcast on Sunday, highlights of which the station tweeted on Friday.last_img read more

Battered Bruins upset Arizona

first_imgTUCSON, Ariz. — UCLA came to the McKale Center banged up, bruised and battered. The Bruins hadn’t won here since 1997 and they left bruised and battered, too. But they also left with a win. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson “It’s a great win,” UCLA coach Ben Howland said. “Coming off a disappointing loss (vs. Cal last Saturday), to come here and beat a great team like Arizona with three seniors not able to play.” And leaving with a sophomore who might not be able to play. Farmar is considering a hiatus to let his right ankle heal. Farmar scored 11 points but also had six turnovers in 24 minutes. He played only 10 minutes in the second half but made two free throws with 20 seconds left and another pair with 10 seconds left to give UCLA an 83-79 lead, which sealed the victory. Farmar left the game with 4:35 left in the first half after stepping on a player’s foot and rolling his right ankle again, the fourth injury on that ankle this season. He returned but he wasn’t the same. And now he might sit out for a while. “That might be the best thing,” Farmar said. “I’m going to talk to my family and sit down with Coach and see what the best thing is for both of us.” UCLA rode Arron Afflalo once again and had solid performances all-around in a freshman and sophomore-only lineup. The young Bruins even held off a last-minute surge for an 85-79 win over Arizona in front of a sellout crowd of 14,696 Thursday night at McKale Center. Even with point guard Jordan Farmar hobbling around, the 17th-ranked Bruins (12-2, 2-1 Pacific-10 Conference) still won. center_img During the game, Farmar went to the training room, where he got the ankle re-taped. While he was away, the Bruins were just fine. Afflalo had 20 points on 8-of-11 shooting. He made a ridiculous runner, a 3-pointer from the left wing in transition, a jump shot from the baseline, and shots in the lane. Everything he did worked. He even played with three fouls, collecting the third with 2:46 left in the first half. The Bruins controlled the second half but never led by more than eight. It got interesting in the final minute as Arizona pulled within two points on an Afflalo mistake. He turned the ball over UCLA did so 23 times against the press in the backcourt. Chris Rodgers stole the ball, made the basket and was fouled. He converted the three-point play with 35.2 seconds left to pull the Wildcats (9-4, 2-1) within two at 79-77. Farmar then made two free throws and after a Marcus Williams basket, Farmar made another pair of free throws. “We played well,” Arizona coach Lute Olson said. “They played great.” Josh Shipp scored 14 points and Luc Mbah a Moute added eight points and nine rebounds. Lorenzo Mata, who started at center, had nine points and seven rebounds. Mata drew consecutive fouls within a nine-second span and made 3 of 4 free throws to give UCLA a 71-63 lead with 5:25 left. Arizona guard Hassan Adams was held to 21 points after averaging 28 in the Wildcats’ first two Pac-10 games. Center Michael Fey (ankle), forward Cedric Bozeman (shoulder) and guard Janou Rubin (flu) didn’t make the trip. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
