Jury acquits ex-female soldier of murder

first_img…State to appeal decisionOne day short of three years since Agricola, Greater Georgetown housewife Donna Taylor was murdered at her home, the accused, former Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Private Abiola Jacobs was unanimously found not-guilty by a 12-member jury at the High Court in Georgetown on Monday.Murdered housewife Donna TaylorThis result came after just over two hours of deliberations, but it is expected that the prosecution will appeal the decision following reports that one of the jurors allegedly grew up in the same area as Jacobs.However, when the verdict was returned before Justice James Bovell-Drakes on Monday, the court upheld the jury’s unanimous decision and the Judge announced that Jacobs was free to go. After the words “not guilty” were announced, there were contrasting expressions from the relatives of Taylor and Jacobs who packed the courtroom to capacity. The Taylors were speechless with astonishment as they moved their heads from side to side in disbelief. Meanwhile, Jacobs’ relatives praised the heavens, saying that the verdict was a result of prayer and divine intervention.After being freed, Jacobs in high heels ran out of the court onto South Road before jumping for joy and embracing several relatives and well-wishers as she trotted and skipped along Croal Street. In much jubilance, she also hailed many passengers in passing minibuses who recognised that she was freed as the Taylors left the court despondent.On the night of January 31, 2014, Donna Taylor was discovered with her throat slit, hands bound behind her and her shirt wrapped around her neck. The jury considered the testimony of main witness Samantha Sabbatt, a Briton, who narrowly escaped with her life as she was a guest of the Taylors. She had admitted that she had an intimate relationship with her friend’s son, Bertram Taylor Jr, at the time she was staying there, but stressed that she never encouraged him to separate from Jacobs. Jacobs was the estranged girlfriend of Bertram Taylor Jr.Sabbatt had recounted that on the night Taylor’s motionless body was found, she was in the bedroom of the upper flat of the home when she heard footsteps, voices and a male later shouting for her to open the door, moments after the lights were switched off. She had also testified, via Skype from London, England, that she had climbed up and peeped through the lattice work and had seen Jacobs in the light of the street lamps that shone into the house. She had also claimed that when the lights came on, she jumped through the window onto the veranda and sustained injuries in a bid to save her life. On February 1, 2014, Sabbatt recalled attending a confrontation with Jacobs where she told her: “Sweet girl, you never saw me.”Abiola Jacobs became a free woman on MondayHowever, Sabbatt had issues with the consistency of her recall which was highlighted by the defence which had suggested that the main witness changed her story from the time when she was interviewed by Police and at preliminary proceedings at the Magistrates’ Court. At certain points, she was sure that she saw Jacobs and at other points she said she saw a shadow which she believed to be that of the defendant.The jury had also considered the testimony of Taylor’s daughter, Marcelle Collymore, who claimed that the accused and her mother had a fight on the day of her mother’s demise. This was also confirmed in the evidence of Police Superintendent Joel David who similarly testified that Jacobs informed him that she spoke with Taylor on the day of her death. Superintendent David had also corroborated that the survivor of the attack (Sabbatt) had placed Jacobs at the scene of the crime.Jacobs was represented by Defence Attorney Adrian Thompson while State Prosecutor Mandell Moore led the prosecution’s case with assistance from fellow State Counsel Lisa Cave.last_img read more

MAN SAYS TREE SAVED HIS FAMILY FROM CAR-BOMB BLAST

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: A man said he believes a tree in his garden saved the lives of his family after a car-bomb exploded outside their home.Alan Coyle points to the tree outside his home which was hit by a device or shrapnel from a bomb. Pic copyright Donegal Daily.Alan Coyle, 59, was left terrified after thugs targeted his home in Letterkenny, on Friday morning.Alan was with his wife Geraldine and their 13 year old daughter Katie at Manor View Park when he heard a massive explosion at about 3.40am. He noticed that two of his windows had been smashed and there was a smell of “sweet burning” all around his house.He called the Gardai immediately who evacuated homes on the normally-quiet estate.Alan noticed shrapnel in his garden and was then told by Gardai that his jeep had been severely damaged.The front of Alan’s Mitsubishi Pajero jeep was badly damaged and the two front wheels were blown outwards. At first light on Friday morning the Army Bomb Disposal team arrived in Letterkenny from Finner Camp army base in Ballyshannon.The ground on which the device exploded beneath Alan’s jeep is still scorched. Pic copyright Donegal Daily.Garda Inspector Pat O’Donnell has said he feared there may be secondary devices planted in the area.The army left the area after two hours after being satisfied there were no more viable devices in the area.Alan and other people on the estate were allowed to return to their homes at 6pm on Friday night.Speaking yesterday for the first time, Alan, a former fisheries officer, told Donegal Daily he feels the tree in his front garden may have saved his family from being badly injured. “I am almost certain of that. I think a device was thrown at the house, hit the tree and bounced back under the jeep.“I think it then exploded and caused all the damage. Only for it hit the tree it could have came into my bedroom and God knows what kind of harm it would have done,” he said.Alan pointed to a number of areas of damage including a hole in his bedroom window which was hit by debris which failed to smash the double glazing.Two of his neighbours’ houses also have holes in them from where they were hit by debris. The army bomb disposal team arrive to examine the scene of Friday’s explosion. Pic copyright Donegal Daily.Alan says his daughter Katie is too terrified to return to the family home but hopes she will in a few days time.He says he has his own theory about who is behind the attack and why but wants the message to go out that he is not involved in any criminality.“There are all sorts of rumours out there but I want to state that this has nothing to do with drugs or there is no paramilitary thing.“I have my own suspicions that it is connected to a dispute I was involved in. I just never thought it would be taken to this extreme,” he said.But despite the horrific attack, Alan, who is well known in hunting circles, says he will not be intimidated out of his family home.“I will not be moving. I will not be frightened out of my home.“I have spoken to the Gardai who I have to say have been so professional in their approach in all of this. I will be improving my personal and home security but I will not be leaving my home,” he said.MAN SAYS TREE SAVED HIS FAMILY FROM CAR-BOMB BLAST was last modified: November 24th, 2013 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:Alan Coyleblastbomb blastGardaiManor View ParkTREElast_img read more

SA in massive Indian airport deal

first_img14 February 2006A South African consortium has struck a US$1.5-billion (R9.25-billion) deal to modernise India’s Mumbai airport.The consortium, made up of Airports Company South Africa (Acsa), Bidvest Group Limited and Indian infrastructure company GVK, beat nine other bidders to win the tender.Known as GVK-SA, the consortium will modernise, operate, develop and manage the airport for a concession period of 30 years, with the option of a further 30 years.During that time the Indian government will retain a 26% shareholding in the venture, with GVK holding 37% and Acsa 10%.South African Transport Minister Jeff Radebe welcomed the deal, saying it was “just the beginning” of Acsa’s global expansion. He said upgrading airports and other transport infrastructure to be efficient and well-managed was crucial for development.“This deal is not only important because of the money involved, but also because transport is important for the realisation of the Nepad [New Partnership for Africa’s Development] goals and objectives,” Radebe said.“As government we want to encourage Acsa to embark on more projects such as this, both in Africa and abroad.”Airport know-howMonhla Hlahla, managing director of Acsa, said the company would provide the project with know-how on policies and procedures, IT solutions, quality and environmental management, maintenance and engineering, safety, service standards, capacity planning and master plans, project management, route and traffic development, ands stakeholder management.Acsa will also provide technical exchange programmes as part of its skills transfer initiatives within various functional areas.“However, I must hasten to mention that the learning experience will be a two-way process for Acsa and the Mumbai International Airport employees,” Hlahla said.“Through these initiatives the company will gain invaluable experience from exposure to the Indian environment. This transaction will enrich all employees and partners involved.”The deal will also create jobs within Acsa, as seasoned professionals are to be regularly posted to Mumbai.She added that Acsa could also earn money for the Indian government through other commercial activities, as the company was positioned to “realise an all-encompassing commercial transformation for Mumbai International Airport”.The “remarkable” growth of commercial revenue has contributed significantly to Acsa’s financial success over the years.It has grown by 364% in the last eight years at a rate nearly three times that of the company’s air-transport revenues, Hlahla said.She explained that GVK had been chosen as a partner because of the company’s commitment to the deal and experience of various infrastructure projects in India, such as in the power sector, toll-roads and urban infrastructure.GVK has also had successful partnerships with credible international partners such as the World Bank’s International Finance Corporation, its ability to raise debt finance in the Indian market, its approach of an equal partnership with the South African consortium and its shared values of corporate governance.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

My hair is extremely slippery, as most hennaed hair is as well as being so fine, so would probably be fine on most peoples hair. As for the price, these are more hair jewellery than school hair slides. I bought these to match my hair, so they will work with anything i want to wear. I also bought a macthing barette from the same supplier for summer updos. Well worth the extra money, as they will last a lifetime if jot lost or abused.

Multifamily Construction is Good News for Green Building

first_imgRecently, while doing research for a series of articles I am writing for Multifamily Executive Magazine, I ran across some interesting information on the multifamily construction industry and the increasing demand for green certified buildings. Affordable housing, much of which is multifamily, has been leading the way in green building for many years, much of this due to incentives tied to low income housing tax credits (LIHTC) that promote certified projects.In recent years, due to the downturn in real estate which forced many former homeowners to become renters, there is increased demand for rental apartments throughout the country. This demand makes multifamily rental property a significantly better investment than it has been for many years, piquing the interest of many investors and REITs who previously avoided residential buildings. It has been reported that one large REIT, Mack-Cali Realty, is “moving aggressively into the multifamily property sector” and “has been a seller of office properties.” The many shades of greenI realize that having a building certified as green isn’t the be-all and end-all of high-performance buildings. But it is definitely a start.I have run across people who think that the Passivhaus standard or the Living Building Challenge should be the baseline standard for all buildings. While I appreciate the dedication and rigor of programs like these, we do live in the real world, and I have come to the conclusion that I am OK with incremental improvements.Yes, I know that a building that just barely meets a green certification standard will be wasting more energy and resources than a much better one, but I don’t think as a society we are capable of huge overnight transformation. So I’m pleased that the mainstream green certification programs are moving steadily into the multifamily market. I believe that it will continue to stimulate demand for green buildings over the long term. The numbers don’t lieTo date there are over 38,000 LEED Homes certifications, including over 27,000 multifamily units. The NGBS has certified over 18,000 total units, of which over 12,000 are in multifamily buildings.Many regional programs such as EarthCraft House have also seen their multifamily certifications outpace single-family certifications. Multifamily green certifications seem to be leading the industry.I expect that renters who live in high-performance apartments will come to appreciate the efficiency, health, and comfort they experience in them. When they look to move or buy a home, they will be seeking the same benefits, helping create more demand for green buildings down the road. Although most REITs have historically focused on commercial buildings, as noted above in the case of Mack-Cali, they are shifting significant portions of their investments toward residential buildings. It can be reasonably assumed that REITs that require or otherwise incentivize their development partners to have their commercial buildings green certified will do the same with residential properties.According to Kelly Vickers, National Director Sustainability for Alliance Residential Company, a national apartment developer, their institutional investor clients ask for green certification in their properties. Depending on the property location and investor preference, the majority of their new properties will be certified under LEED, National Green Building Standard (NGBS), or a local program.center_img Green REITs do betterAccording to an article in FSInsight, REITs with green buildings in their portfolios perform better, have lower risk, and a higher net cash flow.
