Liberia Weak in Fighting Human Trafficking, Says US State Department State

first_imgThe U.S. Department of State has unveiled that Liberia is yet to fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of human trafficking.Although the State Department’s report partially praised Liberia for “an increased number of investigations and prosecutions of alleged trafficking offenses,”  including steps taken by government to adopt a five-year national action plan to combat human trafficking, the report, however, notes that Liberia remains a source, transit and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking.According to the report, most trafficking victims originate from and are exploited within the country’s borders, where they are subjected to domestic servitude, forced begging, sex trafficking, or forced labor in street vending, rubber plantations, and alluvial diamond/gold mines.“A small number of Liberian women and children are subjected to human trafficking in other West African countries, including Cŏte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria,” the report said.It also unveiled that transnational trafficking comes to Liberia from neighboring West African countries, including Sierra Leone, Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria, and the victims are subjected to the same types of exploitation as internally trafficked ones. The report further indicates that women from Tunisia and Morocco were subjected to sex trafficking in Liberia.  It added that amidst all these, Liberia has not convicted a Liberian for trafficking in persons.The State Department urged the government of Liberia to prosecute, convict and sentence traffickers.It also called for vigorous investigation, prosecution, and conviction of government officials complicit in trafficking offenses.The State Department, having realized some lapses in the Judicial system of Liberia, recommended to the Liberian government to provide additional training to law enforcement officials and magistrates to apply anti-trafficking laws and to distinguish trafficking crimes from cases of human smuggling or kidnapping.The report also calls on Liberia to educate representatives of non-governmental organizations, law enforcement agencies, courts, and other government agencies on the “Direct Assistance and Support to Trafficked Victims Standard Operating Procedures,” so that they learn to proactively identify and provide protective services to trafficking victims, create and adequately fund a shelter specifically for trafficking victims, and increase efforts to educate the public about the dangers of human trafficking.The Trafficking in Person (TIP) Report is the U.S. Government’s diplomatic tool to engage foreign governments in the fight against human trafficking.  It serves as the world’s most comprehensive resource of governmental anti-human trafficking efforts and reflects the U.S. Government’s commitment to global leadership on this key human rights and law enforcement issue.Unlike previous limited understanding about human trafficking that got people to believe it to be selling the victim to a foreign country for ritual purpose or slavery, the act is nowadays clearly understood to be domestically oriented.As public awareness had acknowledged on many occasions, relatives and loved ones take others’ children from the hinterland under the guise that they are bringing them to the city to send them to school.When they are brought, the children become domestic servants to them and their biological children thereby denying them of most privileges and rights they are entitled to as humans.Most of these children do not attend good schools and many  do not attend at all, but are used to sell for their guardians and support the home.It is evidently clear that in Monrovia many children are found in street places selling biscuit, candy, cold water and other goods that are easily conveyed in the hands.Some women are also in the streets carrying children around begging for money.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘PNC projects’ cannot be classified as emergency works

first_imgDear Editor,Numerous articles recently published by the media, give testimony to the consistent manipulation and breach of procurement laws, which are being blatantly and flagrantly flaunted under the administration of the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government. Their silence on, and lack of correct efforts, provide strong testimony of a subtle accommodation of the many unacceptable wrongs.No doubt, the suppression of disciplinary, corrective and essential counter-checking mechanisms, negatively impact local governance matters. At the same time, the transparency requirements of the Government seem to have been dissolved and forgotten by its principals and agents. The situation in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) is not limited to the defaulting, but provides apt examples of the wide distasteful approach. Budgeted parliamentary appropriations are being re-prioritised, while the productive capacity of the region suffers from lack of necessary support.As the 2018 rice crop gets into full swing, farmers throughout the country are experiencing serious difficulties with ‘impassable’ roads/dams along with soft and muddy fields. On the Essequibo Coast, farmers are lamenting that their calls on the Regional Executive Officer (REO) in Regional Two to address the required maintenance of roads and dams, have fallen on deaf ears.The REO under the pretext of creating savings, has deliberately withheld much needed monies from the current budget, that was supposed to facilitate the grading of roads, dams and cleaning of drainage trenches; to facilitate the water running off the fields into the drainage trenches. Rationally, the blocked drainage trenches are causing backed up water in the rice fields. It has realised a situation where the rice had to be reaped in soft and muddy land, which contributes to significantly increased production costs.At the recent Public Accounts Committee (PAC) meeting, the brazen misuse of authority by this REO was brutally exposed. In his futile attempt to provide an acceptable explanation for consistently breaching the procurement laws, said he spent savings from the ‘Current Account’ to do ‘Emergency works’. This nonsensical position flies in the face of even the most irrationally challenged persons.From a closer examination, however, readers deserve to be up-dated that the money was spent to facilitate construction of the following: a bus shed at Dartmouth; a fence at Unity Park-Phase-I; a fence at Unity Park-Phase 2, and a sitting area at Cotton Field. It should be noted that projects which include construction of buildings and infrastructure, should be done from Capital funding.Notably, these projects were by no means emergencies and the lack of critical productive support.It was quite revealing that millions of dollars were expended on the planting of palm trees around Ann Regina and further millions were spent on planting trees and growing them along some specific communities on the Essequibo Coast.I must highlight for the update of readers, that none of these ‘PNC Projects’ can be classified as emergency works. Comparatively, all the poor farmers have asked for is the usual assistance of some fuel and materials to full the potholes and grade the dams. The REO at a recent meeting accepted that in the past, farmers were given assistance to do their own self-help work to facilitate the smooth harvesting of the rice crop.Many farmers have expressed very strong beliefs that the current contraventions of the written policies, are intentional and designed to punish the farmers and their children in particular Local Authority Areas. Targeted in this respect are areas where Government do not control the elected Councils. There are currently no other rational positions for the actions of the Government officers towards the farmers.This serious deliberate vicious discrimination against selective sections of the population is driven by Government agents and has worsened. We are now hearing more about oil replacing the agricultural sector in this country, and this is bound to have significant negative implications. The People’s Progressive Party had warned about the “Dutch Disease” which this Government seem bent on allowing to happen.Yours truly,Neil Kumarlast_img read more

Gor hit Ports, progress to Kagame quarters

first_imgThe result leaves Gor Mahia top of their group with six points having kicked off their campaign with a 2-1 win against DR Congo side AS Maniema.After a barren opening hour in which Gor Mahia enjoyed possession with little penetration or potency, substitute Omondi breached their opponents’ goal line six minutes after introduction after picking up a loose ball inside the six yard box off an Oalo cross.Gor continued their dominance after the goal and Kenneth Muguna’s introduction for Hashim Ssempala changed the color of the game as the midfielder ran the show.Oalo then put the game to rest in the 92nd minute, brushing off a late challenge from a Ports defender before slotting the ball home.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia midfielder Samuel Onyango battles for the ball with an AS Ports player during their CECAFA Kagame Cup duel in Rwanda on July 10, 2019.

Champions League final 2016: Who was ’embarrassing’? Real Madrid player ratings

first_img 12 12 Keylor Navas – 7 (click the arrow, right, to see the Real Madrid player ratings) – Didn’t do too much wrong and his imposing presence led to two penalty misses as players felt they needed the perfect spot kick to beat him. Dani Carvajal – 6 – Picked up a yellow card for a scything challenge in the first ten minutes before limping off injured and in tears. 12 12 Marcelo – 7 – Untroubled in defence until Juanfran started overlapping on the right and was an asset in attack, making 35 passes in the opposition’s half. 12 Cristiano Ronaldo – 7 – Did not stop running all night but did not make his mark on the game until he dispatched the final penalty to win Madrid’s 11th European Cup. 12 Pepe – 7 – Solid in defence but his performance was overshadowed with his embarrassing antics in trying to get Felipe Luis sent off. 12 Casemiro – 7 – Gareth Bale said Casemiro tackles everything and he did that all night with eight. Sergio Ramos – 9 – Became the first defender to score in two Champions League finals but was immense in defence, not giving Atletico’s forwards an inch. Toni Kroos – 7 – Put in the perfect delivery for Sergio Ramos’ goal and looked solid throughout the evening. Luka Modric – 8.5 – With all the attacking talent at Real’s disposal Modric is often overlooked but he was yet again one of the best players on the pitch, making seven key passes in total. Gareth Bale – 8.5 – Bale was relentless in both attack and defence and caused Atletico countless problems. Will also be causing England’s defence sleepless nights ahead of the clash with Wales at the Euros. 12 Substitutes – Isco – 7; Danilo -7; Lucas Vazquez – 6 12 Karim Benzema – 6.5 – Had very little impact on the game as a whole and wasted a decent chance when Cristiano Ronaldo was better placed. 12 Real Madrid won their second European Cup in three years when they saw off city rivals Atletico Madrid after a tense penalty shootout.Captain Sergio Ramos gave Los Blancos a first half lead before substitute Yannick Carrasco’s goal took the game to extra time and eventually spot kicks.Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning penalty to jubilant scenes from the white half of the crowd in the San Siro in Milan.It was a great performance from Real in the first half but their second half display let their rivals get back into the game.But which player was embarrassing for Real and who was relentless in attack?Click the arrow above, right, to see the player ratings for Real Madrid in the Champions League final! 12 12last_img read more

There is no indication there was an engine malfunction, although firefighters at the scene said witnesses told them it sounded like the engine quit. “There is no indication the engine shut down,” Jones said. The plane was equipped with a parachute designed to allow it to float down for a landing. The parachute was found spread out beside the wreckage, but Jones said the parachute deployed after the crash. The parachute has a rocket motor that propels it up and away from the airplane. “When the airplane hit the ground, the parachute was still onboard the airplane and it fired after that,” Jones said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
