2 EAC Executives Held in Contempt

first_imgJudge Yamie Gbeisay yesterday held the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and a senior vice president of Equity Assurance Company in contempt and subsequently jailed them for their repeated refusal to adhere to order.Judge Gbeisay of Criminal Court ‘C’ issued the order for the CEO, only identified as Ukauwa, and his deputy Siaka Toure to pay over US$1,500 as insurance liability to Judge Emery Paye, now assigned in Nimba County as Resident Judge.It was their continued refusal to pay the money that prompted Judge Gbeisay to order court officers with the backing of officers of the Liberian National Police (LNP) to enforce the arrest warrant which brought the two senior managers under the jurisdiction of the court.When they were arrested, Gbeisay, without the least delay, instructed the court to commit the pair to the Monrovia Central Prison until they comply with the order.Paye’s vehicle was hit last year by one of Equity’s clients whose identity was not disclosed, and as a result of that accident the judge sustained serious head injuries and his car was badly damaged.After the accident the company’s customer reported the matter to his insurer for compensation of over US$1,500 to have the judge’s car repaired and refund some of his medical expenses, which Paye had already settled and was requesting a refund.But they refused to cover the expenses, although they initially agreed to cover those liabilities.Liability insurance covers damages that a driver is legally responsible for.After an investigation was conducted by the Liberia National Police (LNP) and the company as part of the case, it was established that the client communicated with his insurer.However, although the company’s management had agreed to cover the expenses, up to present they had not done so.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_imgSpeaking ahead of today’s opening of the 44th plenary of the British Irish Parliamentary Assembly in the Seanad chamber, Leinster House, Dublin, the Co-Chairmen of the Assembly, Joe McHugh TD, and Laurence Robertson MP, have said that building trade opportunities between Britain and Ireland is key to economic growth and boosting employment in both countries.The Co-Chairmen said that the Assembly would specifically consider practical measures to boost trade through the plenary’s theme of ‘making business easier between Britain and Ireland.’They added that the input of successful business-people to the plenary through an address by Darina Allen of Ballymaloe cookery school on Monday on opportunities for the food sector in Britain and Ireland and a panel discussion with leaders from the agrifood, manufacturing and pharmaceutical sectors was an innovative way of speaking directly to key businesses to identify their priorities. An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, will address the plenary theme in his address to the Assembly today.The plenary will also be addressed by the Minister for Health, James Reilly TD, on opportunities for healthcare co-operation, the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Leo Varadkar TD, and the Minister of State at the Department of Finance, Brian Hayes TD.This afternoon the Assembly will also discuss a motion on the announced closure of the RTE office in London.Joe McHugh TD, commented, “The UK accounts for 42% of total Irish exports, and Ireland is the fifth largest market for British businesses. It is vital that we continue to develop this trading relationship, in particular in the context of the economic downturn. One such area is through building opportunities for trade and investment between our islands. “The feedback from business leaders is therefore crucial in building a policy environment that supports and encourages trade.“Furthermore, as a representative for a border constituency I am particularly aware of the need for an examination of shared services in the area of healthcare provision. For example, I hope that we will discuss the potential of shared services between Britain and Ireland for chronic and rare diseases. In regard to the current debate on the location for the new children’s hospital in Dublin we should initiate a discussion on whether services can be shared between Britain and Ireland in the context of developing the new facility.Laurence Robertson MP added, “Following extremely successful plenaries in Cork last June and Brighton in October, I look forward as newly appointed British Co-Chair to further developing the Assembly’s work in key areas of British-Irish co-operation. The visit of HM Queen Elizabeth II to Ireland last May was a momentous occasion and it is appropriate that almost exactly one year on from that event we assess what practical steps we can take to deepen Anglo-Irish relations on behalf of the people we represent.” IRELAND AND BRITAIN TO DISCUSS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES – McHUGH was last modified: May 14th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more
