Bill for Corruption Court Lands at Senate

first_imgSenator Jewel Howard Taylor has submitted to Senate plenary a letter asking for their attention, review and subsequent endorsement of a draft Legislative Bill entitled: “An Act to amend Title 17 of the Penal Code Laws of Liberia, known as the Judiciary Law of 1972; to provide for the establishment of the Corruption Court of Liberia.”She said the draft Act is being submitted in response to the high level of alleged corruption cases and the public perception that the endemic and systematic corruption has engulfed “our governance structure; and that we the lawmakers have not shown enough political will to put in place the requisite structure, which will enable the Judiciary deal with corruption in a holistic way.”The Bong County lawmaker told her colleagues that it is her ardent desire that “in consideration of the urgency of the passage of this bill that we will do all within our power to expedite and have this critical draft bill into law.”Immediately upon passage of the Act, Corruption Courts will be created as specialized courts and established in each of the counties, initially commencing with Montserrado County. The procedure and enforcement of the mandate and judgments of the Corruption Court shall be the same as that of the Circuit Courts in criminal cases, except as modified in this act or the Rules of the Corruption Court as may be promulgated afterwards. The court will be composed of a panel of three judges, one of whom shall be called the Chief Judge and the administrative head of the court. Decisions of the court shall be by majority. The judges of the court shall have the power and authority to issue orders in the nature of writs of prohibition, to inferior courts and their officers; will aid the exercise of the appellate jurisdiction over said inferior courts. “In terms of appointment and tenure, the President “shall nominate, and with the consent of the Senate, appoint and commission three judges of the circuit court stature, who shall preside over the Corruption Court.”The Bill is now with the Senate Committee on Judiciary, chaired by Senator Varney G. Sherman. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke believes FA Cup semi-final is biggest game of his career

first_img1 Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke regards this weekend’s FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool as the biggest game of his career to date.Villa play the Reds at Wembley on Sunday with a place in the final at stake on May 30, knowing either Arsenal or Reading lie in wait.Benteke missed last summer’s World Cup after rupturing his achilles a year ago, and the Belgian striker believes this weekend’s showdown constitutes his biggest game as a result of missing the finals in Brazil.“For the moment, yes. It [missing the World Cup] was hard but now it’s in the past, I’m looking forward to playing the semi-final,” said the Villa hitman.“Liverpool are a good team but the thing with the FA Cup is it’s still something special. It’s 50-50 for me but some will say they are favourites.”The 24-year-old also insists it is ‘risky’ for Tim Sherwood’s side to take their recent impressive form for granted as they look to ensure Premier League football next season.Villa clinched a 1-0 win at Tottenham on Saturday which stretched the gap between themselves and the relegation zone to six points, but Benteke wants to retain focus on survival despite the FA Cup distraction.He said: “I think it’s risky to say we can take three points and we’re finished. We have to try to win every game.“Saturday was a massive three points because now we’re six points clear of QPR so it’s very important for us to be far off them.”talkSPORT will bring you live coverage of Aston Villa against Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final this Sunday from 3pm.
