Probe launched into MV Sabanto’s crash

first_img… captain, sailors accused of being under the influenceBy Indrawattie NatramTransport officials have launched a probe into Tuesday evening’s crash of the MV Sabanto after the captainThe damaged rampreportedly lost control of the vessel while mooring at the Supenaam Stelling, in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).The crash resulted in severe damage to the back of the vessel and sections of the stelling. The incident occurred about 18:30h as the vessel arrived from Parika with hundreds of passengers and vehicles onboard.Persons who were on the boat at the time of the incident began to panic as they were only able to disembark almost two hours later at 20:00h, while several vehicles were damaged as a result of the collision.Eyewitnesses described the situation at the stelling as “chaotic.”Information reaching Guyana Times indicated that the captain of the vessel as well as his sailors were reportedly all under the influence at the time of the accident. As such, investigators have since turned their attention to the crew.While the probe is ongoing, owners of the vehicles that were damaged are demanding compensation. Meanwhile, several vehicles, loaded with goods, including perishables were left stranded at Supenaam, forcing authorities to turn to the age old ferries – the MV Malali and the MV Moukoria to ply the route.The MV Malali takes approximately five hours to travel from Supenaam to Parika, while the MV Sabanto plies the route in just 90 minutes.Transport authorities told this publication on Wednesday evening that they were working to have the damaged stelling repaired at soonest. Authorities also warned that anyone found culpable will be sanctioned.last_img read more

European Under-21 Championship will be valuable experience for Harry Kane, claims Tottenham legend

first_imgTottenham goalscoring legend Clive Allen has backed Harry Kane to go with the England Under-21s squad for this summer’s European Championship.After capping his senior England debut with a goal at Wembley back in March, the Spurs striker is keen to rejoin the Young Lions squad for the trip to the Czech Republic.Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, meanwhile, has insisted he will have the final say over Kane’s involvement, with the White Hart Lane chief wary of burnout after a spectacular breakthrough season which has seen the 21-year-old bag 30 goals in all competitions.But Allen believes the competition could prove to be a valuable experience in the Spurs starlet’s continued development.“I think he should go,” He told Hawksbee and Jacobs.“I had the pleasure of presenting Harry with his PFA Young Player of the Year award and I had a chance to chat with him at the ceremony.“I told him he should go and play. It’ll be a fantastic learning curve for him, playing in a very strong competition against the top young players and nations in Europe.“He’ll have the opportunity to have a break after the tournament. It won’t be a long break, but he was very clearly intent on going; it’s a level he will never be able to play at again.“I think that, with the squad and the quality of the players who could be going, he wanted to be a part of it.”last_img read more

Miraculous ‘recovery’ for wheelchair con artist

first_imgSAN BERNARDINO – A paraplegic who repeatedly filed claims and lawsuits for noncompliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act was a con artist without any physical limitations, authorities said. After her arrest this month by Las Vegas police, Laura Lee Medley, 35, of Alhambra leaped from her wheelchair and ran for freedom, officials said. Complaining earlier that she was having medical problems, police took the woman to a Las Vegas hospital for treatment, said David Wert, spokesman for San Bernardino County. “That’s where the great miracle occurred,” he said. Medley “made a break for it,” leading police on a brief foot pursuit before she was captured, Wert said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

1,129 Donegal households in mortgage distress, says expert

first_imgA total of 1,129 Donegal households are in mortgage distress, a leading expert has claimed.And it was claimed that the State’s Mortgage to Rent scheme could help hundreds of householders who face losing their homes in the county.Mortgage to Rent expert Paul Cunningham claimed many families in such circumstances could benefit by entering the scheme. Central Bank figures show that 1,129 households in Donegal have been unable to pay anything off their mortgage for at least two years according to Mr Cunningham, CEO of Home For Life (HFL), and a Government-approved operator of the Mortgage to Rent Scheme.“The Mortgage to Rent scheme was designed to help these home-dwellers yet figures to the end of the first quarter this year show that in Donegal 14 cases were active, while none has yet been completed since the scheme came into being,” he said.“The scheme allows those who are eligible to remain in their current home to resolve their mortgage debt and pay a rent that is affordable and income-based on a long term lease.”He said his experience after talking to councillors and officials over the past nine months suggested that there was a general lack of awareness of how mortgage to rent (MTR) could solve those problems. “Many public representatives accepted that they hadn’t come across the scheme and they only had a vague knowledge of MTR. I would be surprised if many new candidates were up to date on its workings,” he said.“It is crucial for all public representatives to be fully briefed on the scheme so that when they meet people with unsustainable mortgage debt, they can inform them how best to enter the Government-approved plan if they are eligible.“When you have such a diversity of opinion as Fr Peter McVerry, the champion of the homeless, and Dr Conor Skehan, the former chairman of the Housing Agency, saying mortgage to rent can be a genuine contributor to solving the housing crisis, we should listen.“For our part, we are prepared to brief any candidates on the updated mortgage to rent scheme and assist them working with constituents if they need to talk to us about particular cases.”Mr Cunningham stated that Home For life had a long-term outlook of purchasing properties through the MTR scheme. “We have reduced the timeline in dealing with all documentation and agencies so that a case can normally now be completed within six months,” he said.1,129 Donegal households in mortgage distress, says expert was last modified: May 4th, 2019 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:donegalhouseholdsMortgage to Rentlast_img read more
