Linden Town Clerk reinstated

first_imgLinden Town Clerk Jonellor Bowen resumed duties within the municipality of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) on Wednesday. Bowen, who confirmed that she was back on the job following months of administrative leave, said she is also in the process of preparing a press statement in relation to the issue, which she noted will be released shortly.Linden Town Clerk Jonellor BowenCouncillors of the municipality had passed a No-Confidence Motion against Bowen on July 27, 2016, and she was sent on administrative leave in October 2016, following a Commission of Inquiry into alleged wrongdoings within the Council. The Commission of Inquiry which released its findings a few weeks ago, however, found that the Motion brought against the Town Clerk was “in contravention with the procedures set out in Section 8 of Chapter 28:01 of the Municipal and District Councils Act of the Laws of Guyana and was also in contravention of the Standing Order rules under Section 9.”Permanent Secretary within the Communities Ministry,  Emil McGarrel, wrote to the Council in a letter dated January 26, 2017, advising the Council to reinstate Bowen. McGarrel noted in the letter that arising from the findings of this Committee, the Ministry is not in a position to endorse the No-Confidence Motion as it currently stands due to its procedural irregularities. He further advised that the Town Clerk shall be called upon to resume her functions as Town Clerk forthwith.Nevertheless, the Council made a decision that Bowen should resume duties on March 1 to facilitate a smooth transition of her duties. Bowen said she received correspondence from the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) on Tuesday evening which stated that she should resume duties on Wednesday. (Utamu Belle)last_img read more

Lautaro: ‘This cannot happen’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: Lautaro Martinez was visibly upset after a 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund. “Inter were a completely different team after the break. This cannot happen.” The Argentine is the first Inter player to score in three consecutive Champions League games since Samuel Eto’o reached four in 2010. He had opened the scoring, followed by a Matias Vecino goal, but the 2-0 lead at half-time made little difference. “We did really well in the first half, but were a completely different team in the second. Perhaps we showed a lack of maturity, as we changed entirely after the break,” Lautaro told Sky Sport Italia. “It wasn’t physical, it was a lack of concentration and the drop-off in intensity more than anything else. We were leading 2-0, we cannot lose 3-2. It cannot happen. We need to mature and grow to play at this level. “We have not lost hope of qualifying, we’ve been trailing since the start in this group, but we can do it.”last_img read more

ISL: Kerala Blasters register home win against Atletico de Kolkata

first_imgPedro Gusmao celebrates after scoring a goal against Atletico de Kolkata.Atletico de Kolkata were robbed a point due to poor refereeing as regular captain Luis Garcia’s injury time equaliser was disallowed by assistant referee as hosts Kerala Blasters recorded a 2-1 win in a 10th round encounter of the Indian Super League on Friday.Despite the defeat, ATK stay put on second position with 16 points while Blasters also keep their third position intact with 15 points from 10 games.The incident happened in the 92nd minute. Down 1-2, ATK’s Jofre kept a cross-field ball from the left flank which Ethiopian striker Fikru Tefera headed for an unmarked Garcia and the former Liverpool player smashed it home. But to his horror he saw the assistant referee disallowing the goal where as TV replays showed that ball had crossed the goal-line by atleast a couple of feet.It was a match that Blasters dominated in the first half as they scored through their Scottish striker Iain Hume in the 4th minute and left-winger Pedro Gusmao in the 42nd minute.For ATK, Fikru pulled one back in the 55th minute but it was more due to a faulty clearance on the part of opposition captain Cedric Hengbart. The match started with Fikru wasting a golden opportunity as early as 2nd minute when he had all the time in the world to beat Blasters custodian David James but his side volley didn’t have enough punch to beat a diving former England World Cupper.Within two minutes, it was Hume, the former striker of English Championship (Division I) team Fleetwood Town, who hit back through counter attack. It was Pedro who made Baljit Sahni chase shadows essaying a lovely chip from wide left.advertisementThe defence formation of ATK was all jumbled up with custodian Subhasish Roy Chowdhury indecisive about coming out of his charge. The ball was slotted home by Hume and Stephen Pearson standing on goalline cleverly jumped to let the ball enter the net as a touch from him would have ruled it as off-side.Pedro scored the second goal for his team when Sandesh Jhingan’s inswinging left-footed cross from the right flank saw Milagres Gonsalves failing to head the ball but both Sahni and Arnab Mondal were out of position as the Brazilian scored his first goal in the cash-rich league.Having been outsmarted in the first half, ATK’s attack did have some sting after the change of ends once Garcia came in place of Arnal Lilbert. His assists and clever positioning did put Blasters in a bit of trouble but the held on well in front of a capacity crowd and the benevolence from the match officials ensured that ended up with full points from the encounter.last_img read more
