NDS Finance Manager Sentenced for Stealing Malaria Drugs Money

first_imgWesley Jlue, the finance manager of the National Drug Service (NDS), found guilty after confessing that he and his boss, Beyan Johnson, diverted hundreds of thousands of United States dollars generated from the sale of drugs intended to fight against malaria, was last week sentenced to five years imprisonment.The money, Jlue claimed, was withdrawn from what he described as a” “facilitation account,” he and his boss jointly opened at the First International Bank (FIB) to process NDS’ customer discount and to settle other related expenses.Interestingly, the drugs were donated to the government by the Global Fund, the world’s largest financer of anti-AIDS, TB and Malaria programs, which is being managed by the NDS,“Jlue is sentenced to five years imprisonment immediately and is ordered to pay the amount of US$358,366.12 and LD$1,916,495.60,” Judge Yussif Kaba of Criminal Court ‘C” said.  “Same represents double the gains derived from your criminal act.”Surprisingly, Jlue was charged with the commission of the crimes of theft of property and forgery, following a complaint by his boss, Johnson that he (Jlue) singlehandedly opened an account in the name of the institution, where he allegedly transferred hundreds of checks.Jlue’s prison sentence did not take place immediately as it was declared by the court, because his lawyers took serious exception to the ruling and announced an appeal before the Full Bench of the Supreme Court.Besides, the crimes are bailable offences under the law and he is also enjoying a criminal bond, as provided by the law.Granting his appeal, Judge Kaba declared, “exception noted and appeal being a matter of rights, it shall stall the enforcement of this matter.”His decision to appeal against the ruling stemmed from Judge Kaba’s action to deny his request to reverse the unanimous guilty verdict earlier brought against him by the petty jury.As part of that request, Jlue’s lawyers argued that the verdict was contrary to the weight of the evidence produced during the trial.They contended that the facilitation account opened at First International Bank (FIB) was based upon the instruction of the managing director, Beyan Johnson, to process customer discounts and to settle other related expenses, which, according to them, was ignored by the jury.They further argued that the money was only withdrawn by him upon authorization of his boss. However, his boss who brought the charge against him was vindicated from the charges.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

FIVE CAYS PDMs file report at Elections Office

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, December 15, 2016 – Reports have been made and the Elections Supervisor has asked for Police investigation into matters which are concerning to political watchers.  Dudley Lewis confirms that at least one report of possible treating was made where it was charged that the PNP Camp was giving away drinks and food to Electors.  Lewis reminded that this would fall into the category of ‘treating’ which is illegal.  Lewis said Police looked into the matter and reported to him that the items were for PNP workers, not members of the public or voters.However, PDM Party members in Five Cays aka Electoral District #9 questioned the honesty of that explanation due to the quantity of items, which they said was ‘way too much for a few poll workers.’  When Magnetic Media arrived on site, there were no food or drinks at all at the PNP station near IBO Grocers.   Across the street, the PDM was also without possible treats.  Photos were provided to Magnetic Media since early morning; these photos have also been posted on social media.The Integrity Commission, only moments ago advised that procedure and law requires that reports of this nature go directly to the Police and the Elections Office.  The IC added that it is beneficial to have photo or other evidence to support any complaint.There is a three way race in ED#9 between Rachel Taylor for the PNP; Bobby Chambers of the PDA and Sean Astwood of the PDM, who is the incumbent for the constituency.#MagneticMediaNews#TCIGeneralElections#FiveCays&ChalkSound Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

BAHAMAS Environment Minister Ferreira Inspects 10 Million Clifton Pier Oil Containment Construction

first_imgPress Release: BIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, January 29, 2018 – Nassau – Building an oil containment tank at the Bahamas Power & Light (BPL) Headquarters is the Bahamas Government’s latest priority: On Thursday, Minister of the Environment & Housing, the Hon. Romauld S. Ferreira visited Clifton Pier to inspect the construction, view the plans, and speak one-on-one with those working in the field.The joint project of the Ministry of the Environment & Housing and the Ministry of Works, will cost the Government almost $12 million to build, which includes a contingency budget, in order to permanently prevent chronic oil spill accidents from occurring near the barge docking at Clifton Pier.Minister Ferreira explained, “We are building first the containment wall.  We are building a new bulkhead, which will prevent the seepage of oil from the site in the ocean; and designed into that bulkhead are sumps where the oil will actually collect and then we’ll extract it.  So, our first goal is to prevent oil from going into the ocean and that’s what you saw going on there today.“Now the bulkheads being installed are specifically designed with safety features to prevent the oil from seeping out.  Sheet pilings are going inside every joint and each joint is sealed with “bentonite” to prevent seepage, and then behind that is a barrier membrane that’s being designed by AGO Syntex.   All of that is to prevent the oil from migrating from the site into the ocean, as what’s happening now.”Minister Ferreira said the Ministry of Works has about 630 feet installed and the target deadline is June 2018.  He added that for at least 20 years or more, the oil seepage at Clifton Pier has been causing environmental concerns that were never addressed, until now.  Such seepage will no longer pose a threat.  The Ministry of Works engineers and contractors started the endeavour in November 2017 and are working diligently around the clock to meet the June deadline for completion.“Now another source of oil into the ocean is through the cooling water discharges at BEC,” said Minister Ferreira.  The proposal is to build a purposeful device called an oil-and-water-separation system, in which as the discharge waters leave the site — any oil in that system is removed and then only clean water goes out.  The purpose of this is to stop the pollution at Clifton Pier.” Photo caption: Pictured at the site in group consultation, from left: Sanjeev Gupta, Contractor with Bahamas Marine Construction; Romauld Ferreira, Environment & Housing Minister; Anthony Ryan, Public Analyst, Environment Ministry; Lisa Taylor, Laboratory Technician; and Robert Mouzas, Senior Structural/Civil Engineer.  Other photos are around the site.(BIS Photos/Gena Gibbs) Related Items:last_img read more

DPM Peter Turnquest Responds to Fabrications on Whatsapp

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, March 7, 2018 – Nassau -It has come to my attention that a WhatsApp message is being circulated stating that I, as Minister of Finance, will “benefit hugely” from the Oban $5.5 billion proposed Oil Refinery & Storage project in East Grand Bahama.I wish to confirm and assure my Constituents of East Grand Bahama and the wider Bahamian community that this is a vicious untruth spewed by those who wish to create political mischief. This is truly unfortunate and shows the desperation of these operatives who know no bounds of decency, and have no basis on which to attack this government which has been working to right many of the insulting wrongs left behind by the prior administration.For clarity, I am a member of the Bahamas Institute of Chartered Accountants and I have a license from the GBPA as a sole practitioner, however it is and has been inactive since I was appointed Minister of Finance on May 12, 2017.The Bahamian people can rest assured that I have and will devote 100 percent of my professional energy to rescuing this country from the grips and levels of negligence and greed experienced over the last five years.   Thank God our efforts are bearing fruit and we will remain focused on the positives in our community and on our work.The level of fake news today is sickening and unfortunately confuses too many of our citizens who do not understand the extent to which these unnamed cowardly charlatans will go to mislead them.  I encourage citizens to discern for themselves the facts and to be informed, as it is the only way to combat this unfortunate abuse of social media and our democracy.March 5, 2018Nassau, The Bahamas Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more
