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

Bayer, 4-H to grow tomorrow’s science leaders

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Bayer and National 4-H Council amplified their commitment to the future of our rapidly expanding global population by launching a new effort to grow the pipeline of tomorrow’s innovators, starting now. The two organizations announced today a nationwide collaboration, Science Matters, which will address the need for an enhanced STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) workforce by planting a love of scientific exploration in thousands of youth in urban and rural areas across the country.Science Matters will leverage Bayer’s more than 150 years of scientific breakthroughs and 4-H’s century of hands-on learning to equip more than 25,000 youth with tools and support they need to deepen their understanding of science.“Advancing health and nutrition is what we do best and care about most at Bayer,” said Ray Kerins, Bayer’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs and a former 4-H’er. “We can’t do that unless we grow tomorrow’s innovators today and fill the critical pipeline of future STEM leaders—not only for agriculture, which is increasingly technologically-driven, but for all STEM-related fields. Bayer sees this as a sacred responsibility and we’re proud to work with 4-H, a first-class organization that shares this vision.”Science Matters will bring together 4-H leaders with Bayer employees to work alongside young people demonstrating why science matters to all of us. In addition, Bayer will sponsor the 4-H Agri-Science Summit in Washington, D.C., where students will learn about modern agriculture, careers in agriculture and gain more than 30 hours of hands-on learning and problem-solving experience. Bayer will also provide as many as 200 scholarships and offer community grants to extend the program’s impact. And Bayer’s continued sponsorship of the 4-H Youth in Action Award will add yet another dimension to Science Matters.“In 4-H, we believe in the power of young people, and we are thrilled to join with a company like Bayer that also sees the potential when you equip youth with the skills and opportunities they need to be true leaders,” said Artis Stevens, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, National 4-H Council. “Science Matters will extend the reach of our hands-on STEM programming, which is proven to grow 4-H’ers who are two times more likely than others to enter STEM careers.”The world’s need for expertise in STEM has never been more intense than it is today. Many of the millions of STEM-related jobs generated in America alone go unfilled due to a lack of relevant graduates and skilled professionals — a scarcity acute in agriculture, which is not always considered the STEM-related field it has become. Scientists who focus on plants, food and water, among other areas, are in demand as growers tackle some of the most complex challenges of our time: sustainably providing nutrition for a rapidly growing population in the face of a changing climate, dwindling natural resources and evolving pests and diseases, to name just a few.“At Bayer, we believe in the power of science and its ability to positively impact the health of people, plants and animals, and we know that 4-H shares this belief with us,” Kerins said. “That’s why we’re excited to be on the ground floor of a wonderful relationship that will help develop a new generation of innovators who will address some of the most critical issues facing our society today.”last_img read more
