GOL to Cut Tax on Sanitary Materials

first_imgIn the face of high demand and rush for sanitary materials and bleach products to fight the deadly Ebola virus, the Government of Liberia (GOL) through the tax policy unit of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) says it is reviewing a proposal for the relaxation of tariffs and duties on the importation of sanitary materials and other bleach products in the country.According to the MFDP, the revision will be done in conjunction with the Liberia Revenue Authority. The demand for sanitizers has risen as some drug stores and health centers tend to hold back the products. The price of sanitizers has also begun to rise as most homes, workplaces and commuters struggle to get at least a hand sanitizer and a pair of hand glove. Most offices, health centers and homes have begun enforcing a direct policy requiring people to wash their hands in a sanitized bucket of water before entering and leaving their premises. The MFDP announced the decision yesterday following the death in Nigeria of one of its employee Mr. Patrick Sawyer. The Ministry also announced a measure suspending operations on Monday and urged the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to disinfect all offices hosting the MFDP on Broad Street and Capitol Hill. The MFDP authorities have also placed all staff particularly senior officials, including Finance Minister Amara M. Konneh, coming in direct or indirect contact with Mr. Sawyer on a prescribed 21 days observatory surveillance period starting July 20th, the day Mr. Sawyer departed the country for Nigeria. The MFDP noted that only persons with genuine business dealings and transactions would be permitted on the premises of the Ministry. “All employees, who made no contact but have been traumatized as a result of the situation in the last few days and would like to take some time off, are free to stay home until when it is necessary to return to duty,” the statement said. The MFDP has also restricted the use of its elevator to only 4 persons per trip; prohibited clustering on the stairways and restricted the gathering of people not more than five persons except for meetings in conference spaces or spatial environment. Absolutely no handshakes, hugging of other physical bodily contact is allowed at the MFDP. The Ministry has meanwhile encouraged all employees to wear long sleeve clothing to minimize any possible risk of exposure and has put in place a thorough sanitary program and admonishes all staff to use the hand washer or personalized sanitizers or disposable gloves available at the Ministry’s entrance. The late Patrick Sawyer was the Coordinator of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) National Unit at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

SUPERMODEL FAYE’S HEARTACHE FOR DROWNED SCHOOLPAL ELAINE

first_imgIRISH supermodel Faye Dinsmore has revealed her heartache at the death of her Donegal school-friend Elaine Morrow.Elaine, 23, died after a scuba-diving accident off the coast of Queensland in Australia on Monday last.Catwalk queen Faye, who was classmates at primary school in Ballintra with Elaine, revealed how she still can’t believe what has happened. The pair grew up together in the rural townland in south-west Donegal where they attended the tiny four teacher Robertson National School.Stunned Faye, also 23, posted a message on Elaine’s Facebook page revealing how she was only chatting to people two days ago about going to school with Elaine and two others friends Marion and Alana.“I still can’t believe it. Randomly the day before yesterday someone asked me what primary school was like and I was talking about how small it was and there were only the four of us girls, me, Elaine, Marion and Alana. I can’t believe it,” wrote a shocked Fay.Faye, who has more than 250,000 followers on her Facebook site, has replied to many messages of support which have flooded in from around the globe since Elaine’s shocking death. Elaine’s family have asked for privacy while they await the result of a post mortem which took place today.The Maynooth NUI biology graduate was on the second day of a three day dive on board the boat Summertime, was with about a dozen other tourists off Whitsundays Islands when she went missing around 4.15pm on Monday local time.She was found a short time later on the ocean floor in 11 metres of water and when she reached the surface, a number of people tried CPR but failed to revive her.She was then rushed to Haman Island Medical Centre where a nurse administered CPR but this also failed to bring the woman back.A Morrow family member revealed that the family will not be speaking about the loss of Elaine at the moment. “The family would ask that they would be given the courtesy of privacy at this point in time, to come to terms with the loss of Elaine,” he said.Donegal County Councillor Phonsie Travers said Elaine’s parents Jimmy and Margaret and her two younger sisters are just devastated by what has happened.He added that while a full investigation will be carried out into Elaine’s death, there is speculation that she may have become separated from the group.“I spoke to an uncle of Elaine’s and he told me she had not been a diver. This was perhaps only her first or maybe second time. “It appears that she got separated from the group she was with and she may have panicked. But we will have to wait until the official police investigation is carried out,” he said.EndsSUPERMODEL FAYE’S HEARTACHE FOR DROWNED SCHOOLPAL ELAINE was last modified: April 21st, 2011 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:AustraliadrownedElaine MorrowFaye Dinsmorelast_img read more

RAPIST ADMITS BREACHING BAIL AFTER HE FLED TO DONEGAL

first_imgA convicted rapist from Northern Ireland who went on the run in Donegal has admitted breaching the terms of the police sex offenders register.Rapist Joseph McCabe went on the run in Donegal.Joseph McCabe, 29, pleaded guilty at Belfast Crown Court to failing to notify police of his intention to travel outside the UK. McCabe was released from jail last April and went on the run turning up in Burtonport with another convicted man.The pair later handed themselves in after Donegal Daily exposed their whereabouts.McCabe, originally from west Belfast but now with an address at a city centre hostel, went on the run after serving half of a 14-year jail term for the rape and burglary of a pensioner, sparking an island-wide manhunt.On 1 February 2005, McCabe and another man broke into the home of a then aged 64-year-old woman and subjected her to what a judge described as a “terrifying prolonged ordeal” and a violent sexual offence carried out with “significant gratuitous violence”.Last May, Judge Kevin Finnegan QC, who originally jailed McCabe for the pensioner’s rape, suspended his licence for a year, sending him back into custody for 12 months.The judge adjourned passing sentence in the breach matters until pre-sentence probation reports have been compiled next month.RAPIST ADMITS BREACHING BAIL AFTER HE FLED TO DONEGAL was last modified: September 5th, 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:donegaljoseph mccaberapistlast_img read more
