first_imgA threat to the security and the invasion of any country can be mainly attributed to the acceptance of beautiful gifts (bribery) by security personnel, as in the epic tale of Troy, when a stunning “Wooden Horse” was presented as a gift, but in the gift was hidden 100 trained and armed soldiers who destroyed Troy.The Deputy Director General of the Civil Service Agency (CSA), Mr. Othello K. Weh, said the “Wooden Horse in Security” should serve as a forewarning to every officer of the Bureau of Immigration and Naturalizations (BIN) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) to be loyal to the country by refusing “gifts” at the borders and in the country.Mr. Weh said the “Wooden Horse” can be any gift such as L$50, US$50, or one gram of cocaine given in exchange for entry or escape.He made the remarks as guest speaker last Friday, November 28 during the graduation  of 39 and 10  senior officers of the Bin and DEA, respectively after the completion of a 10-week training in Leadership and Management, held at the Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA), on Mamba Point, Monrovia.The training was sponsored by UNMIL as part of their ‘Quick Impact Project’ initiative.  Mr. Weh, who is a lecturer at the University of Liberia, said the  periodic training of security officers in the country is crucial especially along the borders where there are cross border commercial activities as well as inter-marriages and geo-political dynamics to remind the security of the state of the danger of the “Wooden Horse.”Mr. Weh urged graduating officers of BIN and DEA to be professional and disciplined and implement what they have learned.“Discipline adds value to your integrity and personality. Discipline works on our consciences to choose what is wrong and correct,” the CSA Deputy Director said. “Discipline works on our commission to practice patriotism and a high degree of loyalty to our country and countrymen.”The Vice Chairman of the Governance Commission (GC), Madam Elizabeth Sele Mulbah, said GC is grateful for the training of the BIN and DEA officers, stating that it is important for the security to always be one step ahead amid the smartness of the criminals.She stated that the two institutions are among the critical institutions for national safety.For his part, the Director General of LIPA, Mr. Oblayon Blayon Nyemah said there is a tendency for people to be imbued with the mistaken notion that para-military personnel should be relegated to the lowest level of the skills training ladder and be confined to their cubicles especially when their skills are not directly linked to the normal operations of para-military engagement.“But this is a wrong and a wretched perception because a functionally capacitated para military, where the men and women are dedicated to operationalizing their mandates within the geo-political space over which we exercise our sovereignty as a nation with such training they would have the opportunity to perfect their skills and perform better given their complex responsibility that we are confronted with in building our country after conflict,” the LIPA boss said.He stated that similar training can be extended to larger security sector and other para-military institutions as well as other public institutions when there are additional supports or when the financial capacity of LIPA is improved.The Director of DEA, Mr. Anthony K. Souh commended LIPA for the training, saying it widens the understanding of the DEA middle managers of their conduct.The Commissioner of BIN, Cllr. Lemuel Reeves also thanked LIPA and said the training impacted the professionalism of the officers in a timely manner.  He urged them to be examples of what they have learned by being proficient.For his part, the UNPOL Commissioner, Cesar Hawthrone Binag also praised LIPA for the first-of-its-kind training of senior officers of BIN and DEA and said it is a part of UNMIL’s plan to train the officers and managers in the security apparatus.In appreciation for the UNPOL commissioner’s work, the BIN gowned him and gave him a vai name, meaning Chief. The Bin also presented a gown for his wife and a plaque.  Meanwhile, LIPA has introduced a new course, the Public Security Management for security officers, in the curriculum. LIPA offers various levels of trainings, ranging from short-term competency courses to long-term graduate professional development courses and there are also customized courses offered on request of the client organization.The design of these various levels of training, whether regular or customized, meets the demand of the participants in the use of State-of-the-Art technology and modern facilities employed by highly qualified institutional and adjunct faculty staff.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal reportedly agreed a fee for Sanchez with City on transfer deadline day, only for the deal to collapse after Wenger was unable to complete a move for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar. Photo/COURTESYLONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 2 – Arsene Wenger moved to allay the fears of Arsenal fans on Tuesday saying he would replace both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil with world-class players should they end up leaving.Both Sanchez, who came close to moving to Manchester City on the final day of the last transfer window in August, and Ozil’s contracts are up at the end of the present season. Sanchez’s attitude and commitment to the club have been questioned by fans and some of his team-mates did not congratulate the 29-year-old Chilean after he scored a double in the 3-2 Premier League win over Crystal Palace last Thursday.Wenger, whose transfer dealings have been a sore point with sections of the Arsenal support, said he would also be on the look-out for players in the present transfer window.Mesut Ozil (left) talks to Arsene Wenger after joining Arsenal from Real Madrid in September 2013“We are open to any position for the exceptional player that can give us a plus. It depends a little bit on the injuries as well,” said the Arsenal manager on the eve of their match with reigning Premier League champions Chelsea.“On the other hand it depends if we manage to extend the contracts of the players who are at the end of their contracts in June.“It will depend on that as well. We have to take the consequences of those decisions and respond to it.“How we cope with that, first of all we have not lost them yet, and secondly we will respond to that by bringing in players of top quality.“This club has lost many, many big players and has always responded well.”Arsenal’s Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring a penalty during the English Premier League match between Burnley and Arsenal at Turf Moor in Burnley on November 26, 2017However, the 68-year-old Frenchman refuted suggestions he was targeting Chelsea’s Brazil centre-back David Luiz or French international midfielder Thomas Lemar from Monaco.The failure to sign 22-year-old Lemar back in August led to the collapse of the Sanchez move to Manchester City.“I don’t want to think about any special names, but these reports are wrong,” said Wenger, whose side are currently fifth in the table, six points behind Liverpool in fourth but with a game in hand.As for catching runaway leaders City, Wenger said there is the slimmest glimmer of hope for their rivals given their two recent performances — a 1-0 win away at struggling Newcastle United and then a 0-0 draw on Sunday against relegation-threatened Crystal Palace.“They have shown signs of being less dominant,” said Wenger, whose side are 21 points behind City.“One of the teams behind need to have a perfect run and they (City) need to collapse a bit.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Having worked alongside TV star Rick Stein in his ‘The Seafood Restaurant’ in Cornwall, the 31-year-old from Picardie in northern France wanted to bring French cuisine here.“I love Ireland and the Irish. I worked in Dublin before in Freres Jacques and I jumped at the chance to come back here, ” he said after the launch.“It doesn’t have the weather of the place I worked in in St Martin in the Caribbean, but the people have been amazing.”The business man behind the Bastille Bistro is Frenchman Francois de Dietrich. A request for an interview three weeks ago has not been responded to. It’s not known if his FASRE estate agency is affected by the decision to close Bastille Bistro.FASRE specialised in offering properties to rent before people could buy them.16 JOBS GO AS FRENCH RESTAURANT CLOSES IN LETTERKENNY was last modified: December 24th, 2010 by gregShare 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)last_img read more
