– berates President Trump while in custodyBy Shemuel FanfairIt was a showcase of drama both in and outside of the Wales Magistrate’s Court when multiple Police ranks were forced to subdue Felix Thorman, who admitted that on January 2, 2018, at the Parika Stelling, he tossed 73-year-old Raymond Stephens out of a hammock before he assaulted the elderly man.For this, he was sentenced to serve the next six months in jail while his wife was advised by Magistrate Annette Singh to allow Thorman to receive a psychiatric evaluation.Drama unfolded outside the Wales Magistrate’s Court before Felix Thorman admitted to assaulting a pensionerPrior to his court appearance, the defendant threw himself onto the road as he was being escorted from the Police vehicle that transported him. Thorman had to be physically removed and taken to the prisoner’s holding area in court in a state of partial undress.While in custody, the defendant was also heard screaming and crying out as though he was in pain. At the same time, he was heard making verbal utterances against American President Donald Trump, indicating his disdain for the US President.“I don’t like Trump; I don’t like da man,” Thorman ranted in the courtroom.His behaviour in the court was so disruptive that Magistrate Singh read the charge to him on the prisoner’s chute (court steps that prisoners go down).According to the prosecution’s case, Stephens, a farmer, normally vends his produce at the Parika Stelling. On the day in question, the pensioner tied his hammock to watch his produce and await buyers.Guyana Times understands that Thorman asked the farmer if he owned the Stelling.Thereafter, the defendant said that the elderly man cursed him and this was why he chopped down the hammock with the pensioner inside.The prosecution contended that Stephens was dealt several kicks and punches about the body. The farmer reported the matter at the Parika Police Station and sought medical attention.After hearing the prosecution’s facts, Thorman admitted to what he had done and Magistrate Singh sentenced him to six months’ imprisonment for unlawfully assaulting Stephens and causing actual bodily harm. Thorman was then taken into Police custody and later transported to prison.

1 Abou Diaby West Brom have offered a contract to Abou Diaby, head coach Tony Pulis confirmed.Diaby, 29, was released by the Gunners when his contract expired during the summer having been hit by a number of serious injuries over the last four years.The France international has managed just two appearances over the previous two seasons but the Baggies have offered the Frenchman a lifeline and Pulis hopes to get Diaby back to playing regularly.“Diaby came in, he had his medical yesterday. We’ve made him an offer and we shall see,” Pulis said after West Brom’s 4-1 pre-season win at Swindon on Saturday.“The big thing with Abou is getting him fit and having the confidence from the medical team to do that. He is a top player and I mean he is a top, top player.“We’ve had a look and we think there are things he can do to improve his chances of playing 30 Premier League games and we’re confident we can help him do that. Whether he accepts that and the ethos of the football club we’ll wait and see.”Meanwhile, Diaby’s former manager Arsene Wenger said the player deserves another chance at making an impression during the remainder of his playing days.“I think Diaby is the biggest regret of my career,” the Arsenal manager said.“He is a guy who has been severely injured and it is not acceptable, we have paid the price for that but I hope things turn around for him and they go well.“First and foremost, he really didn’t achieve his potential unfortunately. I think he had great potential and he could only show that at certain periods of time. I’m a really big fan of Abou Diaby and I really hope from the bottom of my heart that he can end his career without any more injury concerns.“It is a good experience for him, it is good for him to have a fresh start. He is 29 and can have three or four years at the top level. The fact that there was so much competition here makes it so much more difficult for a player who has been out for such a long time.”
A handcuffed Cassells arrivs at letterkenny District Court today. Pic by Northwest Newspix.A man who allegedly broke into two businesses in Letterkenny has been released on bail after a court heard he has been on drugs since he was 8 years old.Daryll Cassells appeared before Letterkenny District Court today charged with burglaries at both a hairdressing salon and a beauticians. Cassells, 20, who is originally from Dublin, told the court he has been living in Donegal for the past two months having fled the capital to escape his heroin addiction.Since coming to live in Donegal, he said he has reduced his drug dependancy considerably from €200 per week to just €25.Cassells, originally from 7 Mayfield Park, Blanchardstown, Dublin, said he had dabbled with drugs since he was 8 years old as drugs were all around him and that he now wants to break free from that life.He also revealed he had ben in and out of care since he was 11 years old and would hide in the attack of his father’s home when social workers would come looking for him.“I had too many friends in Dublin that are involve in crime and I’ve absconded from them. I was strung out on heroin in Dublin but I am decreasing on my drugs. I did cold turkey. I started smoking a bit of weed but I am coming down. I have no intention of going back to Dublin because I am in anger of going back to my old lifestyle if I do,” he said.The court heard how Cassells was terrified of going back to prison after being attacked and stabbed on three occasions including once to the face.Gardai had objected to bail for the two burglaries at LK Hair and Design and Grainne’s Beauty Salon at Larkin’s Lane, Letterkenny on July 25th last.Arresting officer Garda Eoin Waters said although Cassells was a pleasant young man, he feared he would reoffend if given bail.Judge Conal Gibbons said he was prepared to take a chance on Cassells and to grant him bail.But he told the accused that he must prove to him that he was seeking professional help for his addictions when he came before him again in a week’s time on August 13th.He ordered a number of bail conditions including that Cassells sign on at Letterkenny Garda station once a day and that he reside at 11 Orchard Court, Letterkenny.He also paid tribute to the very fair way in which Garda Waters presented the case saying he acted professionally in all his dealings with the accused.MAN CHARGED WITH BURGLING DONEGAL BUSINESSES HAS BEEN ON DRUGS SINCE HE WAS 8 was last modified: August 6th, 2015 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:courtDaryll CassellsdonegalletterkennyLetterkenny Hair and Design
Mac Niallais: Had a good game for DonegalDONEGAL put on another solid performance today as they travelled to Galway in National League Division 2 and come home with two more points.Colm McFadden hit a stunning goal as Donegal finished on 1-16 to 0-12.Last week Christy Toye shone and this week it was the turn of Odhran MacNiallais and Dermot Brick Molloy to show they’re not just in this Jim McGuinness squad to make up the numbers. Michael Murphy and McFadden were as solid – and as brilliant as ever – Murphy pointing some superb frees.And Karl Lacey and Paddy McBrearty also put in very good displays for their county today. But it was the same across the pitch – goalkeeper Durcan finding his range today from kick-outs…with and against the wind and Kavanagh dominant in midfield (and hopefully not injured).Leo McLoone and Martin McElhinney also put in great performances, the latter in particular.Even sub Declan Walsh – on the pitch with just a few minutes to go – hit a point. To be fair, Galway threw what they could at Donegal with Paul Conroy and Eoin Concannon showing the west could be awake again in the Championship this year.Our nearest neighbours Derry – who stand in our way in that competition – are really bubbling up. They went to Killarney today and beat a good Kerry side by two points.Cathal Mac Suibhne will have his in-depth view later this evening.

Donegal Deputy Charlie McConalogue has called for a nationwide audit of how allegations of abuse have been handled by Church and State in each Diocese in the country.The Fianna Fail spokesman on Children expressed grave concern following the findings of six reviews of child protection practices at six Dioceses around the country, revealing 164 allegations of abuse against 85 priests over a 35 year period.Deputy McConalogue has said the reviews were conducted by the Catholic Church’s own child protection watchdog, and we now need a full and independent investigation into how Church and State authorities dealt with these allegations of abuse. He said “The report by the Catholic Church’s own child protection watchdog has revealed a shocking number of child abuse allegations in these six dioceses and a complete failure by the Church to adequately deal with several of these allegations.“In the case of the Raphoe Dioceses, Bishop Boyce has himself acknowledged today that the protection of the reputation of the Church took precedence over the protection of children.“These reports are a result of an internal Church audit and do not examine the role of the State authorities in handling allegations of abuse.”He said the victims must now have their say. “Victims have not yet had the chance to have their voices heard. It is quite clear given the upsetting and disturbing revelations today that further investigations are needed.“A HSE inquiry is still taking place in the handling of abuse allegations. This process has already taken six years and it must be expedited. In conjunction with this, I am calling on the Minister for Children Frances Fitzgerald to establish a full independent Commission of Investigation with a remit to assess the handling of child abuse allegations in all Diocese by both the Church and the State.“Strict terms of reference must be set to ensure the extensive work carried out by the HSE is not duplicated and that the HSE findings facilitate the work of the new commission while allowing the voices of victims to be heard. Strict time-frames must also be set.He added “The Minister for Children must take immediate action on this. Internal audits by the Church and the HSE are important, but more needs to be done. Many of the survivors of abuse in these six reviews today have waited 35 years for their voices to be heard. They cannot wait any longer for the appropriate questions to be answered.”VICTIMS MUST NOW HAVE THEIR SAY – MCCONALOGUE was last modified: November 30th, 2011 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)
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “I look at that and I think if Claire can continue that, why not (let it) be through me,” Mary said. “She was a sweet girl, really. And I just feel indebted to her because she couldn’t live as long as I have.” Claire raised $400 from friends for cystic fibrosis research before her last trip to the hospital for treatment. Her mother said Claire was a funny and smart girl, who had perfect attendance in her last semester of school despite her condition. “She was known for her laugh, she just had a very robust laugh,” Garcia said. The “Bowl for Breath” event in Montrose has raised more than $20,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation since it started. MONTROSE – High school senior Mary Garcia was born a year after her sister died of cystic fibrosis at the age of 9, after a short life packed full of laughter and raising money to fight the disease. But despite having never met her sister, Claire Domino, Mary is continuing her sister’s legacy of fundraising. On Thursday, Mary and her mother, Clarisa Garcia, raised more than $4,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in their fifth annual Bowl for Breath event. More than 150 students from Rosemont Middle School and Crescenta Valley and Clark Magnet high schools participated, each raising at least $25 for the cause. Mary has seen videos of her sister. And she knows that even at such a young age Claire was raising money to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. “Their heart is in it and they are definitely committed to finding a cure,” said Stephanie Kahle, director of special events for the La Habra chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which benefits from the bowling event. About 30,000 children and young adults in the United States have cystic fibrosis. Because of a defective gene, those with the disease suffer from an abnormally thick mucus that leads to chronic lung infections, lung damage and digestive problems. There is no cure for the disease, which has claimed the lives of many children. Because of medical advances, the life expectancy of those with the disease keeps increasing and it now stands at 32, Kahle said.

Sinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty has welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss Denis O’Brien’s appeal over statements made in the Dáil.Businessman Denis O’Brien had claimed that his privacy was breached during a debate about his banking affairs in 2015.Deputy Pearse Doherty and the Social Democrats’ Catherine Murphy had separately made comments under parliamentary privilege that O’Brien believed were in breach of an injunction preventing broadcasts about his banking relationship with the IBRC. Mr O’Brien claimed his constitutional rights were deliberately damaged by the deputies and complained to the Oireachtas Committee on Procedure and Privileges.He had appealed the High Court’s rejection of his proceedings against the Dáil and the State over the statements, which led to today’s Supreme Court ruling.Speaking today, Teachta Doherty said; “This is a big week for both the freedom of the press and for parliamentary democracy.“The statement I made in the Dáil was made in the public interest and in good faith. “Today’s Supreme Court judgement is extremely welcome and reinforces parliamentary privilege.“I shudder to think of the effect on parliamentary debate and our democracy if this judgement had gone the other way. This would have a major chilling effect.“This chilling effect is best illustrated by the fact that journalists themselves were unsure whether or not they could report the comments made by Catherine Murphy at the time.“While I defend my right as a parliamentarian to use privilege, it should always be used in the right manner and only ever in the public interest.“The CPP ruled that I did not abuse privilege and I am happy that now both the High Court and the Supreme Court have refused Denis O’Brien’s attempt to overturn that ruling.” Doherty welcomes Supreme Court ruling on Denis O’Brien appeal was last modified: March 5th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:denis o’brienPearse Dohertysupreme court
