first_imgThe Buchanan City Court in Grand Bassa County is holding a nanny goat in custody while two men claim ownership of the animal.The plaintiff, identified as Amadu Jalloh, a resident of Kilby Street in Buchanan City, complained to the court that on December 29, 2014, one Harris Luke unlawfully stole his white-striped brown and black nanny goat.Jalloh told the court that the nanny goat cost him US$60. The case is being presided over by Associate Magistrate Vasco Brown. Defendant Harris Luke has formally been charged with theft of property, which is violation of section 15.51 of the New Penal Law of Liberia.At the hearing last week, the state was represented byAssistant City Solicitor Johnson Tukeh, while Grand Bassa County Public Defender, Cllr. Paul P. Jarvan represented the defendant.Cllr. Jarvan requested the court to dismiss the case on the grounds that since the defendant was taken to court, the private prosecutor had deliberately failed to appear to proceed with the case, which contravenes section 18.2 of the Criminal Procedure Law of Liberia.“The holding of the defendant’s property clearly indicates that the state does not have sufficient evidence to prosecute the case,” he argued.In response, the state said the defense must be in line with the law, and at that juncture, the prosecution interposed no objection.The court, having listened to the submissions of the two lawyers, ordered the return of the nanny goat to defendant Luke in keeping with the Law of Liberia.According to the Police Charge Sheet, Defendant Harris Luke, 26, a resident on New York Street in Buchanan, during investigations, reportedly said he bought the goat from one Francis Glaydor on December 28, 2014.According to him, the goat went missing from his residence on Kilby Street on December 29.Based on this circumstance, the police charged defendant Luke with “theft of property.”The Daily Observer gathered that an unidentified lady found the nanny goat in a sugar cane farm and called Radio Gbehzohn FM 106.3 requesting the owner to retrieve it. After the announcement, the two men came to claim ownership which eventually got to the police.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img

first_imgGual was already the object of desire of Madrid for its subsidiary in 2018 and now has not hesitated to accept the offer. He also doesn’t mind playing in Second B because he believes that this option will make him take a step forward in his career and improve. In addition, I would have the minutes that I was not going to have in Girona because the competition is tough given that the rojiblanca team are, for their position, Cristhian Stuani, Brandon and Jonathan Soriano. Gual has performed at a good level whenever he has been given the opportunity, He has participated in 22 matches between League and Cup and has signed six goals and two assists, but in the last league matches (against Tenerife and Oviedo) he has not had any minute.With the loss of Marc Gual, Girona will win a free chip so that it can land the great objective of this winter market: a defensive midfielder. Of course, given that more exits are expected, the rojiblanca entity you want to tie a player who can play in attack like Amath or Pedro Porro. Marc Gual will stop being a Girona player in the next few hours. The forward has accepted the offer made by Madrid Castilla and he will cancel his assignment at the rojiblanco club (he arrived in summer from Sevilla, an entity that has his rights) until the end of the season.Weeks ago he had contacted Numancia to find a way out because he considered that in the remainder of the League his chances with Pep Lluís Martí were going to be minimal, but finally he leaves for the white subsidiary to be under Raul Gonzalez. This Wednesday he worked out at La Vinya, but at the end of the session he has already said goodbye to his teammates and will travel to Madrid in hours.last_img

first_imgMiatta has a story to tell, one that describes the loss of innocence.“Since I was a child, I’ve been living from home to home. I quite recently moved back in with my biological mother and understand why,” she says.Miatta composes herself just like any normal teenager would; she spends most of her time playing jumprope, kickball and hanging out with friends.But she hides a dark secret.According to Miatta, the hardest part of her life is having to answer the one question so many people ask her over and over again.“Where is your pa?,”Nine years ago, Fallah, Miatta’s father, was arrested and charged for the rape of a seven year old girl; Miatta’s friend.“Our mothers went out of town and left us at my aunty’s house for the weekend. My father lived in his own house back then and never had access to us throughout the weekend. I don’t know how she was raped by my father,” Miatta said.Miatta was five when officers knocked on her mothers door to tell her about her husband’s arrest.“They said my father raped my friend that weekend and he has been in jail since then,” she added.Ironically, the complainant never followed the case and, according to Miatta, her father has been in prison for the past nine years without trial.“I was 10 when my mother told me about my father. And she did so by taking me to the Monrovia Central Prison to see him,”she says. “It was scary, but after he told me his side, I decided not to judge him,” she added.Since then, Miatta has been visiting her father weekly, never once missing a week.“My concern is knowing the truth and that can only be done if my father is given a fair trail. Where are his accusers? Since they accused my father, they just left him in prison,” Miatta added.Meanwhile, Miatta says she wants justice to be served if her father is guilty and set free if he’s Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
