Illicit Drug Making Machine Booked

first_imgThe Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has confirmed the seizure of what they describe as “sophisticated illicit drug manufacturing equipment” from a Nigerian national at the Freeport of Monrovia. The item was seized during a recent raid by DEA officers at the port as part of the Agency’s sustained clampdown on the use of illicit substances in Liberia. DEA Director Anthony Souh made the disclosure Wednesday at the agency’s head offices in Fiamah, Sinkor. During Wednesday’s press conference, Director Souh put on display the machine and a pack of molding papers known as Rizla. He said the items were confiscated from a Nigerian national. Souh reiterated the commitment of the agency to relentlessly expose those involved in trading in illicit drugs in the country.The arrest of the equipment, Director Souh said, “Poses serious challenges to the agency because instead of importing illicit drugs, those in the illegal trade now intend to manufacture illegal substances in the country.” He cautioned the media to follow up the cases the DEA has sent to court, “because, when we sent these cases to court, we became just witnesses for prosecution.”“On October 2, 2015, a company called Wisdom Enterprise, owned by one Damian Obi, a Nigerian national, and located in Caldwell Bridge, Logan Town, Bushrod Island, imported into Liberia through the Freeport of Monrovia, a 20 foot container- MRSU-0105780 of assorted goods from the Republic of China,”Director Souh told reporters at the press conference. He said the Ministry of Commerce Import Permit Declaration (IPD) and the Customs Single Administrative Document (Customs Import Entry) in the hands of the DEA, revealed 24 different items, including three pieces of so-called water pump, among others, which were manifested and declared.However, during the customs routine examination of the entire consignment, the three machines declared as water pumps were not water pumps, “but some form of filter with all kinds of devices which constitute False Declaration, an offense under the Customs Law of Liberia,” Director Souh said.The DEA Director also said that during the discovery, Wisdom Enterprise was made to pay a fine of L$200,000 and an additional Customs Duty in the amount of US$3,215.17, adding, “This transaction took place before DEA officers were recently assigned to the Freeport of Monrovia.”It was also disclosed that on October 26, while loading the goods from the container onto a truck after DEA had taken assignment at the port, DEA officers discovered that the three so-called water pumps or water filters were clandestine laboratory equipment for manufacturing illicit drugs. The equipment has an inscription, which reads: “Commercially manufactured hash such as marijuana, water and lee collection devices” and the initials “RPS 1.” “These machines can also be used to convert marijuana to hashish or hash. They also have the capacity to mix different chemicals through heating into other forms of illicit drugs,” Mr. Souh said.According to him, the machines can also separate the marijuana plant’s materials from its resin, emphasizing that upon recognition of these machines, the DEA Commander at the Freeport began to question the importer about the usage of the machines and the operational manual, “but the importer reportedly decided to beg and allegedly offered an initial amount of US$500 to keep everything secret until they reached the suspect’s business center on Caldwell Road where they would negotiate.”However, due to the serious nature of the operation, the assigned DEA Commander reported the case along with the US$500 inducement and seized one of the machines loaded on a pick-up as two of the machines had reportedly been taken to the suspect’s warehouse the previous day, said Director Souh. “The situation,” he said, “reportedly prompted the Commander and his men on duty to request a Writ of Search and Seizure on the premises of the importer and his business center to retrieve the remaining two machines, but upon reaching the warehouse, the importer had apparently received a tip-off and moved the two machines to an unknown location.” Director Souh also indicated: “To date, the importer has yet to give the Liberia DEA investigators the operational manual of the machines he falsely declared to customs authority as water pumps.” He further said the DEA’s search of the importer’s business center through court authority also discovered a warehouse full of rizla, “a king size wrapping paper for molding marijuana and other forms of contraband (illicit drugs).”“This size of rizla is banned by the entire European Union countries because it is illicit paraphernalia for controlled drug and psychotropic substances. Under the controlled Drug and Substance Act of Liberia, unlicensed importation, possession of manufacturing equipment is felony of the first degree as provided for in Section 14.106,” Director Souh said. He also revealed that during their search, DEA discovered that the suspect had 340 cartoons of rizla in his warehouse.Director Souh then used the opportunity to commend the DEA Freeport Detachment for a job well done, reaffirming the dedication and commitment of the agency in pursuing drug traffickers and their accomplices in Liberia. At the same time he encouraged those in charge of the nation’s court system to ensure that those involved in promoting the use of illicit drugs in the country are prosecuted once they are caught “so as to make Liberia a drug free nation.”Meanwhile, suspect Obi has maintained that the machine confiscated is a water pump and denied that there were three pieces imported, even though the customs officer present at the DEA head offices, Sam Ganyou, said he was on the scene when the consignment arrived and he took part in examining the shipment. He confirmed that there were three machines.Suspect Obi also refrained from disclosing what the initials, RPS1 identified on the confiscated machine mean, but sources indicated the initials represent a popular entertainment center in Paynesville, outside Monrovia.

Workers, vendors call for “second chance”

first_imgWales Estate closure– slow business sales citedBy Shemuel FanfairAlthough the closure of Wales Estate is slated for yearend, a group of market vendors and sugar workers, who depend heavily on the entity for their sustenance, on Saturday complained that with the announcement of closure, business is very slow.As a result, they are finding it difficult to pay bills and send their children to school. In this light, they have reiterated that the Wales Estate should be given “a second chance.”Vendor Pam (only name given), stated that when the estate closes, she is unsure of just how she will afford to take care of her family.“When this estate close down, me nah know if we gon get a biscuit or bread fuh eat, where dis money gon come from; you got bills fuh pay, tax fuh pay, water you pay by meter…since de people hear de announcement, [they’re holding in their money],” the woman stated.Pork vendor Mary Clarke, who has lived in Wales for the past 40 years, explained that she is yet to decide on her future as when the estate closes, her financial life will change.One worker, who said he has over 30 years’ service with the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) called on President David Granger to ensure that the decision to close Wales is reversed.“When meh hear de estate a close down, da is a nightmare in meh life…de money wah me draw yesterday (Friday), you got to pay monthly water meter, yo got all kind instalments. So we ah ask de President of the country to give de Estate a second chance because de President cares for de people, we care to de President and also to de estate,” the sugar worker noted.Other vendors on the market raised concerns about the increase of criminal activities in the area. Vendor, Bibi Rameshwar, a Bellvue, WBD, resident noted that her pension is assisting in her survival as sales are already slow in the area.The woman further explained that her son has been working with the estate for the past 20 years but he has not been told when he would receive his severance package.GuySuCo and the unions representing sugar workers, the Guyana Agricultural and General Workers Union (GAWU) and the National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE) are currently engaged in a High Court battle over GuySuCo not consulting the unions on the workers’ employment status.The High Court matter will be called on July 7 as the sugar corporation requested time to respond to the litigation on the grounds that it was not properly notified.Meanwhile sugar operations at Wales will close by yearend.last_img read more

Tundo states his 2012 title ambitions

But Chager also rued being the road sweeper .“I have now come to grips with the Subaru N16 but I got increasingly frustrated by being first on the road but I am happy to be back to the finish in one piece.

Chatthe protests Tappio’s KNRC win as Rai triumphs in Kitengela

first_imgBut in a strange turn of events, Tapio countered the move with a protest that Chatthe was towed out of the last section when his Mitsubishi Evolution developed mechanical problems in the latter stages of the rally.Senior officials of the event confirmed that the verdict on the protests would be made this week.Meanwhile, Rajbir Rai clocked 1:06.59 hours to emerge the winner in the Equator Motor Club organized event.The son of legendary Sarbi Rai had his campaign effectively sewn up when the front runners Carl Tundo, Tapio and Chatthe suffered mechanical problems in the latter stages of the rally.Manvir Baryan finished second overall, as he repeated the same performance he had in Eldoret last month. Laukkanen navigated by compatriot Pasi Torma came in fourth behind Chatthe.Tapio, who is racing on a Kenyan competition licence, is seeking to enter his name in the annals of KNRC history books by being the first foreign driver to win the KNRC title.The Finn who was chasing his fifth win of the season had to however contend with two early punctures, which dipped him to fourth.Chatthe, who had led the rally at the halfway mark came in third overall after he stopped to fix a puncture on the last stage.Tapio had this to say after checking into last service at AIC Girls Kajiado: “We got two punctures in the first and third stages and lost quite some time.

FIFA sec Valcke suspended in ticket scam

first_imgValcke “has been put on leave and released from his duties effective immediately until further notice,” said a FIFA statement.“Further, FIFA has been made aware of a series of allegations involving the secretary general and has requested a formal investigation by the FIFA Ethics Committee.”The 54-year-old French official had already been forced to deny involvement in a $10 million payment to South Africa in the wake of corruption allegations that forced Blatter’s resignation earlier this year.The latest claims against Valcke related to allegations of involvement in a scam to sell World Cup tickets at vastly inflated prices and take a slice of the profits.The claims were made by Benny Alon, an American-Israeli consultant at a company which had a deal with FIFA to sell tickets at the 2014 World Cup. The contract was subsequently cancelled.– ‘Fabricated, outrageous’ –In a strongly worded statement issued by Valcke’s US-based attorney, the official decried the allegations as false.“Jerome Valcke unequivocally denies the fabricated and outrageous accusations by Benny Alon of alleged wrongdoing in connection with the sale of World Cup tickets,” the statement from New York attorney Barry Berke said.The statement said Valcke “never received or agreed to accept any money or anything else of value from Mr Alon.”All dealings between Valcke and Alon’s company had been cleared by FIFA’s legal department, the statement added.“As has been reported, FIFA entered into an agreement with Mr Alon’s company, JB Sports Marketing,” the statement said.“That agreement and FIFA’s subsequent business dealings with Mr Alon were vetted and approved by FIFA and its legal counsel.”FIFA have been embroiled in a major corruption scandal since the arrest of seven of its officials on May 27 attending a FIFA congress in Zurich to elect a new president.They are among 14 people charged by US authorities over more than $150 million in bribes given for television and marketing deals.Despite the arrests in May the election went ahead with Blatter winning a fifth mandate although the 79-year-old then announced he would be standing down with a new election scheduled for February.– Under scrutiny –Valcke came under scrutiny in recent months over what he knew about a $10 million payment from the South African FA to an account controlled by the then North and Central American (CONCACAF) football chief Jack Warner through FIFA in 2008.US investigators believe the money was a bribe in return for backing for South Africa getting the 2010 World Cup.FIFA has insisted it only acted as an intermediary between South Africa and former FIFA vice-president Warner, who quit world football’s governing body and his other functions in 2011 over other corruption allegations.Valcke said he only knew about the payment because he receives all correspondence sent to FIFA but he did not authorise the transfer.The French official has found himself under scrutiny during his FIFA career.In 2006 he was forced to step down as the football body’s director of marketing after a New York court judged he had lied by negotiating FIFA deals with Visa in breach of existing contracts with Mastercard.FIFA was later fined $60 million over the case — but Valcke re-emerged unscathed several months later in June 2007 when he was installed as Secretary-General.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000A photo taken on May 29, 2015 showsFIFA President Sepp Blatter (L) and FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke attending the 65th FIFA Congress in Zurich.ZURICH, September 18- FIFA reeled from fresh scandal as Secretary General Jerome Valcke was dramatically suspended over allegations of involvement in a ticketing scam and placed under investigation.Valcke, the right-hand man of outgoing FIFA President Sepp Blatter, was immediately relieved of his duties as the latest wave of sleaze crashed into world football’s governing body.last_img read more

Spanish-born Gonzalez eager to partner with Wanyama

first_img0Shares0000Spanish-born Kenyan Athuman Gonzalez arrived last night for the first time in Kenya.PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu.NAIROBI, Kenya, May 24- The excitement was written all over his face as he landed on Kenyan soil for the first time in his life at 11:16pm on Monday night despite a long tiring flight from Madrid to Nairobi via Amsterdam.New Harambee Stars call up Ismail Said Athuman Gonzalez arrived in Kenya’s capital on the invitation of head coach Stanley Okumbi as Kenya looks to hand him his first ever international cap. Born in the Canary Island, Spain to a Spanish mother and a Kenyan father, the 21-year old is yet to be capped at senior level despite rising through the youth ranks at Spanish club CD Las Palmas from the age of five.But now, the defensive midfielder has a chance to represent the country of his father’s birth after accepting the invite from Okumbi.“I am excited because since when I was small, I wanted to come to Kenya and play football here, where my father was born. When the coach talked to me, I was very happy and I could not say no. It is my first time being in Kenya and I have to admit I am looking forward to getting onto the training ground,” Gonzalez said as he exclusively spoke to Capital Sport upon arrival in Nairobi.His first question after exchanging pleasantries with the Football Kenya Federation representative Ken Okaka who had picked him was; “when is training”, clearly understating his ambition to get right into work, even declining a morning rest he was accorded.“I don’t know much about Kenyan football, I only know of Victor Wanyama because back in Spain my mates always tell me of Wanyama who is Kenyan like me. I can’t wait to play with him because he has a big name in the English League.”Ismail Said Athuman Gonzalez arrived in Kenya’s capital on the invitation of head coach Stanley Okumbi as Kenya looks to hand him his first ever international cap. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu.Gonzalez has previously had unsuccessful trials in the English Premier League with Manchester City.He finished his season on loan to Spanish side Segunda B side CP Cacereno but looks to return back to his parent club Las Palmas which finished 11th in the Spanish La Liga.“I have never played for the senior Las Palmas team before, only the youth team. Now next season, I will go back to the team and hopefully I fight for my place in the team because I think I have picked lots of experience in Cacereno,” the midfielder noted.He will have to fight for a place in the senior team with the likes of captain Wanyama, Zambian based Anthony Akumu, Gor Mahia’s Collins ‘Gattuso’ Okoth and Tusker FC’s Humphrey Mieno.He is however not afraid of competition and spoke of his desire to work hard and get a place in the team.“Hopefully I play on Friday or Sunday, I don’t know. I just want to get to training, work hard and see if I can get a place to play. It will be a happy day for me and a dream come true,” he added.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Sports Tribunal directs league to start with 16 teams

first_img0Shares0000Sports Disputes Tribunal chairman John Ohaga. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 10 – The Sports Disputes Tribunal has directed that the 2017 Kenyan Premier League season should commence in the next two weeks without the four teams in contention as KPL and Football Kenya Federation work towards finding a common ground.Tribunal chairman John Ohaga after meeting the KPL legal representative Geoffrey Obura and FKF representatives ordered KPL to draft the fixtures for the league to start by latest February 25, pending the determination of the case of the four teams. “There is no need for the league to be put on hold because of four teams and so we have directed that before this matter is heard and determined, the fixtures should be drafted and the league starts. When a common ground is found for the four, then they will join in and play catch up,” Ohaga told Capital Sport.Sofapaka and Muhoroni Youth were demoted due to club licensing reasons by the federation and replaced by Vihiga United and KCB, something that the league managers are against.It is this contention that has brought about the suspension of the start of the new season with both sides playing hard ball. FKF insist that only licensed clubs will be allowed to play in the top tier while KPL have stood their ground saying promotion and demotion should only be done on sporting grounds.“We will have a sitting next Tuesday where we hope to iron out the issue once and for all,” Ohaga added.The fixtures expected to be released will include the 12 teams remaining from last season’s league as well as Nzoia United, Kariobangi Sharks, Zoo Kericho and Nakumatt FC.Meanwhile, FKF president Nick Mwendwa has called for a meeting with KPL chairmen on Saturday morning as he continues his efforts to have the matter resolved.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Why a deal for Liverpool’s no.1 transfer target is stalling

first_imgLiverpool want Thomas Lemar to replace Philippe Coutinho, but will not pursue the midfielder if Monaco continue to seek £90m for him.According to The Sunday Times, manager Jurgen Klopp is keen for the £142m Barcelona paid for Coutinho to be reinvested wisely, meaning the Reds could wait until the summer to try and secure a better deal.Arsenal were said to be willing to pay £92m for the 22-year-old France international in the summer, but a deal fell through with reports claiming Lemar was not prepared to play in the Europa League and favoured a switch to Liverpool.The Reds believe something closer to £60m is more reasonable and are currently weighing up alternatives, one of which includes Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic, 19.Meanwhile, RB Leipzig have released a statement claiming midfielder Naby Keita will not be moving to Anfield until July 2018. 1 Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, left, is a Liverpool transfer target last_img read more
