He’s got experience, so you don’t need to put him through a learning process,” said Guiao.“He understands the game from what we’ve seen.

Lawyers representing the interest of four Korean businessmen, who accused the National Security Agency (NSA) of manhandling them in their cell and subsequently seizing their clients’ US$247,500 with other valuable properties have filed a US$2,849,000 “action of damages for wrong” lawsuit against the Liberian Government.The lawsuit filed on August 11, asked the Civil Law Court at the Temple of Justice to hold the government and the NSA responsible for their wrongful conducts and to pay to their clients an amount of US$348,000 as special damages and US$2,500,000 as general damages.The lawsuit claimed that in July 2014, the Korean nationals came to Liberia for business at the invitation of one Nasser Aly; a businessman believed to be a Lebanese national residing in the country and engaged in mining and trade in gold.To ensure Mr. Aly was a legitimate businessman, court documents in the possession of the Daily Observer said, the Korean nationals asked him for a number of documents and pieces of information which, in response to their concern, Aly sent via email and also issued them an invoice on his company’s letter head addressed to one of the four men, identified as Mr. Kim Aleck.In the letter, the document explained that Aly told Aleck that he had on sale 16 kilograms of gold at the price of US$568,000, which they claimed was written in ink on the invoice and requested 50 percent payment which amounted to US$284,000.“Upon receiving the document submitted by Nasser Aly and upon further independent inquiry, they found no reason to suspect that Aly was not a legitimate businessman or that the sale and purchase of the gold covered by his invoice could violate any law,” the lawyers argued in their complaint.The Korean businessmen decided to proceed with the transaction by mobilizing the necessary funds, amounting to the 50 percent required by Mr. Aly.They alleged that on June 27, 2014, they withdrew the equivalent of U$40,000 from the Kookmin Bank in South Korea, at which time they used US$12,584 to purchase air tickets, while the remaining money was distributed among them, each collecting US$6,854 to travel to Liberia.The court document claimed that upon their arrival in Liberia, they agreed to purchase 16 kilograms of gold and on July 8, 2014, proceeded with their agent to the International Bank (IB) and withdrew U$247,500 and preceded to their hotel, (City King Hotel) in Sinkor, Old Road in Monrovia where Mr. Aly agreed to meet them to conclude the payment.Unfortunately, they claimed that while they were at the hotel finalizing the transaction, a group of men, who later identified themselves as agents of the NSA abruptly and violently stormed their hotel room and arrested them.The NSA agents seized from them the amount of U$247,500, along with other valuable items including gas torch, gold melting dish, two packs of chemicals to test the gold and an electronic gold scale.“Later our clients were taken to the NSA headquarters where they were stripped naked placed in solitary confinement in dark rooms, and subjected to various forms of humiliation and degradation without any formal charge or they being advised of their rights as required by the law,” court record quoted the lawyers.They further claimed that, “The government charged them with the commission of crimes of illegal possession of combustible cyanide that posed national security risk to the lives of Liberians, money laundering, counterfeiting, and conspiracy to defraud the government.”It can be recalled that upon hearing of the incident, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf constituted a Special Investigation Committee, headed by Law Professor and Dean of the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law of the University of Liberia, Cllr. David Jallah to investigate the matter.The David Jallah led committee took testimonies and other evidence from those that were party to the incident and after careful consideration, the committee concluded that the charges levied against the Korean nationals were unfounded and the conduct of the NSA under its agents was illegal and made specific recommendations to the President Sirleaf, including the refund of the money to the Koreans.The recommendation was accepted by President Sirleaf and accordingly mandated the Ministry of Justice (MOJ) to implement them.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

“The Legislature will face major challenges in crafting a budget for the coming year,” Hill said. Economists have said for months that a sluggish housing market has dampened economic growth over the past year, but last week state finance officials received more worrisome news: State revenues in January were nearly $1 billion lower than they had projected, thanks to lagging personal income tax collections, which are a substantial part of the state’s revenues. One explanation for the drop: that a “significant downturn in the economy” is underway, said H.D. Palmer, deputy director of the governor’s finance department. But he also said the dip could be a fluke – the result of high-income taxpayers lowering their estimated tax payments at the end of last year. The answer won’t be known until after tax season in late April. But some experts say that either way, the late-year tax decline, coming after three quarters of growth, could portend wrenching budget battles that Schwarzenegger has been fortunate to avert lately. “The only reason they avoided a fight last year is they had very strong revenue from Google and stock options” tax revenue, said Stephen Levy, Director and Senior Economist of the Center for Continuing Study of the California Economy of Palo Alto. “There’s a much stronger chance that this will be a more contentious May and June,” he added, referring to the budget season in the Capitol. SACRAMENTO – After years of robust growth, California’s economy may be cooling – and that could put a crimp in Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hopes for an ambitious second term. State tax revenues have dipped in recent months, an independent budget expert said Wednesday in a report that challenges the governor’s rosier financial outlook. Assuming the state’s economy would continue to hum along, Schwarzenegger unveiled a budget in January that he said would create a $2.1 billion surplus. But the state’s nonpartisan legislative analyst, Elizabeth Hill, estimated Wednesday that revenue projections have slowed and his plan would actually leave the state with a $726 million shortfall in fiscal 2007-08. A windfall of more than $8 billion last year allowed the state to plow more money into education and other popular programs, fostering bipartisan good will between Schwarzenegger and Democrats. A return to budget fights over state programs, Levy said, could “spill over to the era of cooperation.” It’s unclear what Schwarzenegger would do if Hill’s more pessimistic projections come true. Palmer, the governor’s finance official, declined to specify any spending cuts or revenue increases Schwarzenegger would consider. He said the governor is sticking by his January budget and its promise of a surplus until proven otherwise. firstname.lastname@example.org (916) 441-4603 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Exactly. And Big Nev is getting more and more irate at your celebrations and he ends up shouting: “Well done, he’s 13.” “I do remember that. It was for my Michael Owen Soccer Skills, and that was at Stoke’s stadium, actually. Neville Southall was one of my heroes growing up. I was an Everton supporter, and he was a phenomenal goalkeeper, so to be shooting against him was quite good. It was a good time in my life.” This interview appears in the current edition of Sport magazine. Download the free iPad app from the Apple Newsstand, and follow on twitter @sportmagukWhat’s the most ridiculous rumour you’ve read about yourself?“There have been all kinds. When you’re in the public eye the press tend to pick up on half a story and imagine the rest. There’s been things in papers about my sister being kidnapped, which has never happened; that I was a trained pilot and used to fly a helicopter, which never happened.”Anything you wished was true? Being able to fly a helicopter would be alright. “Oh, that would be quite fun. Although it would just mean that if you went to the races you couldn’t have a few drinks, so it sort of defeats the object of going!”What’s your drink of choice? “At the races? At the races it’s champagne. If I’m with the lads I’d be more of a cider drinker – I don’t really like beers or lagers. I’m a cider drinker or a wine drinker.”Who would be the best ex-teammate or current colleague to be stuck in a lift with? “David James is pretty entertaining. He’s always been a good mate of mine. He’s pretty mad and good fun to be around.”What about the worst person? “That’s quite a hard one. Probably David Ginola, because I’d just keep looking at him and going: ‘Cor, it’d be great to be as good-looking as you for the rest of my life.’ There would be a jealousy there.”Cor, indeed. If you could have one superpower, what would it be? “Invisibility. As long as you could turn it on and off. I don’t want to complain, because obviously I wanted to be a footballer all my life and you have to take the rough with the smooth. Sometimes you wish you could go out and you wish you could take your kids to normal places, but you just refrain because you can’t be bothered being stopped and pestered and photographed and autographed and things like that.” Have you ever had an unusual nickname?“To my teammates I was always ‘Mo’ right the way through my career – obviously my initials. I don’t know why, but as a really young kid I was called Midget Gem. Well, I do know why – it’s because I was tiny. Thankfully that nickname subsided. I don’t want people calling me that any more.” Do you have any hidden talents? “I know I’m shocking at certain things. I’m not sure I’m very good at anything. I’m a shocking singer and a shocking dancer, but when I’ve had a couple of drinks I try to…” What was the most embarrassing moment of your career?“I don’t think I had any really shocking, embarrassing moments. I don’t think I’m on any of those videos missing from a yard.”You are on one YouTube video that we love, shooting against a kid being trained by Neville Southall and giving it a bit.. “A bit of cheek?” Michael Owen 1
