first_imgThe Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) says that they will remain committed to reforming the insurance sector as part of its responsibility in ensuring the safety and soundness of the financial system in the country.According to CBL, they have issued a new Capital Requirement Regulation for the sector to be followed by several regulations intended to strengthen corporate governance, risk management, internal control, financial audits, licensing and other prudential standards for insurance companies operating in the country.The statement said the ongoing assessment of insurance brokers and agents will be concluded and followed by the issuance of the appropriate authorization to those that met the CBL requirements.As a further step towards strengthening the insurance sector, CBL said, it is important that the mandatory insurances as required by law, which include Marine and Compulsory Motor Vehicle Third Party Liability Schemes, are enforced.This, according to Bank, will not only support the growth and development of the sector, but also strengthen the revenue-generating capacity of the government in the insurance sector.” However, the CBL said, it will shortly commence restructuring the National Insurance Corporation of Liberia (NICOL), which has the potential to play a meaningful role in the economy with a modified mandate.Presently, the statement said, insurance services are for the most part limited to large corporations, individuals and businesses mainly in Monrovia and consistent with its policy on financial inclusion.The 2015 policy statement of CBL said they will work with insurance sector to extend services to broader clienteles, including micro-insurance services, which are on the rise in many developing countries.The statement also said that the financial inclusion is regarded globally as an important development priority, which is being articulated by G-20, Alliance for Financial Inclusion Baseline Survey, which shows that Liberia has an unbanked population of almost 80 percent falling in the lowest quintile of exclusion.“This lends credence to the importance of the work being done by CBL to help rural communities gain access to affordable financial services through the establishment of Rural Community Financial Institutions (RCFIs),” the statement added.The statement indicated that with the establishment of the RCFIs, there is now at least one financial institution in each of the 15 counties; a marked improvement over the situation just a few years ago.At the same time, the statement said the Board of Governors of the CBL has approved support for the establishment of additional RCFIs in Bong, Lofa and Nimba counties, and for additional capacity building for RCFIs especially in the area of training and information technology.Counties that already have RCFIs, in collaboration with Afriland Bank is already participating in the payment of civil servant salaries in the leeward counties.Meanwhile, the statement said CBL will strengthen the capacity of the National Apex of Village Savings and Loan Association (NAPEX), which is now at the forefront of enhancing livelihood opportunities and women economic empowerment.The CBL will also assist the Liberian Credit Union National Association (LCUNA) in its push towards sustainability and standardizing credit union operations in Liberia, the statement declared.“The new credit union regulations, which are intended to strengthen the institutional and operational structures of these organizations, will be finalized soon and published,” the policy statement of CBL disclosed.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgA PETITION gathered from across Donegal calling for the resignation of Cardinal Seán Brady was delivered to his office this week.The people’s petition was launched in May and attracted almost 500 signatures.The petition, which requests the resignation of Cardinal Brady, was delivered this week to his central office in Armagh, seat of the Primate of All Ireland. The people behind the petition were volunteers from the local area of Falcarragh, as well as members of Fios, a community training group. Seán Hillen, one of the people behind the petition, said they were very happy with the number of people who signed the petition, particularly as it is a rural area.He said it was a reflection of the frustration that people felt about the situation.Hillen said he hoped the petition would add to a “cumulative effect” that could lead to a change of personnel at the top of the Catholic Church in Ireland and also a change in policy.A spokesperson from Cardinal Brady’s office could not be reached yesterday evening. The petition has been signed by people in Falcarragh, nearby towns such as Gortahork and Dunfanaghy, as well as by persons in the wider Donegal area such as Letterkenny, Milford and Ballybofey.It has also been signed by people from counties including Dublin, Galway and Belfast, while an online version of the petition attracted signatories from places such as Sydney, New York and Paris.The petition was started following revelations in a BBC This World documentary about Brady’s role in an inquiry into sexual abuse by paedophile priest Fr Brendan Smyth.The organisers said that when the petition was handed in, the church representative there declined to make any comment, saying the Cardinal was “extremely busy” with the Eucharistic Congress, as was his diocesan secretary Rev Michael Toner.A formal invitation has gone out to the Archbishop to travel to Donegal and see some of the places where sexual abuse of children has taken place and talk to some of the abused. Some local people have said they believe that the parish house where jailed paedophile priest Eugene Green abused some of the children in the Gortahork area should be demolished.They said this should happen because of what it symbolised and because it made healing more difficult for local people who had been abused as children and still live in the area.DONEGAL PETITION CALLING FOR RESIGNATION OF CARDINAL BRADY DELIVERED TO HIS OFFICE was last modified: June 13th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:CARDINAL SEAN BRADYFalcarraghpetitionSEAN HILLENlast_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PICO RIVERA – For the second time in his nine years on the City Council, Pete Ramirez has been named mayor. Ramirez was unanimously voted in as mayor and Councilman Ron Beilke as mayor pro tem at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. Ramirez also served previously for 17 years on the El Rancho Unified School District board. After last year’s firing of longtime City Manager Dennis Courtemarche, loss of seven top administrators and hiring of new City Manager Chuck Fuentes last year, Ramirez said he hopes for more settled times in the months ahead. “David had a tough job to do coming in at such a troubled time,” he said of Armenta, who is the outgoing mayor. “It should be easier for us now.” Ramirez, a former U.S. marshal and police officer, says his main goal will be to improve public safety. The council will soon look at a new public safety plan provided by Capt. Michael Rothans of the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station and Steve Gutierrez, the city’s new public safety manager, he said. “We want a safe community because it is better for residents and makes people want to do business in the city,” he said. He is also looking forward to the long-delayed 16-screen Krikorian Theater project opening in December at Paramount and Whittier boulevards and plans for a new retail center at the former Kmart site at Rosemead and Washington boulevards being finalized. Other projects expected to come to fruition are a new library at Smith Park and the underpass at the Passons Boulevard railroad crossing, he said. Lastly, the new mayor said he would like to see a smoothing of relations between the majority council, which comprises himself, Armenta and Beilke and councilmembers Carlos Garcia and Gregory Salcido. “As a council we agree to disagree, but I believe we will now have a better relationship,” he said. Ramirez was first elected to the Pico Rivera council in April 1997 and served as mayor for the first time in 2001. During his career in law enforcement, he was wounded in the line of duty in 1975 when he was ambushed by a man wielding a shotgun during a routine call to the Nickerson Gardens housing project in Los Angeles. In 1996 retired with honors from the Los Angeles Housing Authority Police Department as a lieutenant, capping a 26-year career in the field. Beilke, who was elected to the council in March 2005, was raised in Montebello and graduated from San Diego State University with a bachelor’s degree in public administration in 1982. In 2002 he opened his Weinerschnitzel franchise in Pico Rivera and has since supported numerous youth and charitable organizations throughout the area. Beilke, too, anticipates better times ahead. “I think people have seen that our new city manager is not the bogyman and that I am delivering on campaign promises,” he said. “In the long run the proof will be in the pudding.” debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028last_img read more

first_imgONE man suffered a broken jaw and another man bruising after a punch-up in a Co Donegal nightclub sparked by homophobic comments about a shirt, a court has heard.Two men from the county appeared at Letterkenny District Court, each contesting assault charges arising out of an incident on the night of August 15, 2012.A Garda investigation was launched when Michael McDevitt, Drury Road, Kerrykeel, made a formal complaint of assault to officers at Letterkenny on August 24, 2012. He had suffered a serious blow in the incident nine days earlier and was later transferred from Letterkenny General Hospital to Altnagelvin in Derry where he underwent surgery to repair a broken jaw.A metal plate and six bolts had to be inserted into his jaw.Adam O’Donnell, a 22-year-old apprentice toolmaker from Castlewray, Letterkenny, later admitted punching McDevitt, but insisted it was in self defence, and only to protect his younger brother Mark who had been accosted by McDevitt who had made references to his clothes and his “gay shirt.”After hearing evidence from both men, Judge Paul Kelly convicted McDevitt of disorderly conduct in a public place, relating to his comments to Mark O’Donnell.He also convicted both McDevitt and Adam O’Donnell on assault charges.Inspector Michael Harrison said he felt “sad to have to prosecute this case” of two young men with no previous convictions.The inspector said that on the evidence given to the court it was clear that Adam O’Donnell saw that his brother was frightened and he went to look after him.Michael McDevitt was throwing insults at the young man Mark, he said, and his brother went over and intervened and an altercation took place.Judge Paul Kelly agreed. He said the disorder in a public place – the insults to Mark O’Donnell – was proved.He said there was some type of lunge by McDevitt on Adam O’Donnell in which he received a minor injury. Adam had retaliated resulting in life-changing injuries for Mr McDevitt, a 20-year-old student who worked as a kitchen porter at the Rathmullan House Hotel.“It’s a sad state of affairs when two very young men end up before the courts in a most unsavoury incident,” said Judge Kelly.He said the incident was started by McDevitt “who must have been in a state of considerable intoxication” having consumed two pints of bulmers and a half a bottle of vodka before going to The Grill and then six vodkas and two Jagemeisters on the premises.He said McDevitt’s claim that he “wasn’t too bad” was “totally lacking in any credibility.”Judge Kelly said: “He was extremely intoxicated and he couldn’t be anything other than extremely intoxicated.“He subjected Mark O’Donnell to extremely offensive insults and his brother Adam had intervened. The incident escalated almost instantly and I am satisfied they struck each other.”The judge said he was all too aware of fatalities occurring where a single blow has been thrown.“Young men in particular seem to have no regard for how a single blow can have catastrophic consequences,” said Judge Kelly.The judge said it was his view that long term implications for their future should be avoided where possible.He asked for probation service reports before passing sentence.The case was adjourned.JUDGE ORDERS PROBATION REPORT AFTER PUNCH-UP AT ‘THE GRILL’ OVER ‘GAY’ SHIRT was last modified: April 3rd, 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:assaultDistrict Courtgay shirtKERRYKEELletterkennyMichael McDevittRathmullanrowThe Grilllast_img read more
