ToR empowers UK expert to review all SOCU investigations

first_imgThe Irish white-collar crime expert working alongside the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU), has hit back at accusations that he has been overstepping his authority at the Unit. The Unit’s Advisor, Dr Sam Sittlington, refuted the criticisms that have come his way.Sittlington, who only returned to his old job advising SOCU, on Monday addressed the issue during a press conference hosted by British High Commissioner to Guyana, Gregory Quinn. The Advisor rejected claims that he interfered in theUK crime expert, Sam Sittlingtonworkings of the Unit from an operation perspective.He stressed that while he may sometimes have to be on the ground to observe SOCU’s handling of investigations, this is just so he can make recommendations. He stressed that he is here to advise SOCU and that he will do so from a safe distance.“Although I’m there to assist SOCU and advise them, I do that from a proper distance. Sometimes I may have to observe them from the ground when they’re involved in searches and interviews to see whether they’re asking (the right) questions. And that their search procedures are (effective) and that they’re collecting evidence in the proper manner and the continuity of the evidence being seized from the property.”According to Sittlington, those are areas of an investigation where a case can fall apart. But he reiterated he does not make decisions on behalf of SOCU, but rather gives advice and trains individual officers based on his knowledge and experience.“I’ve been doing this a long time and I’ve been doing it in a lot of countries. The Terms of Reference are very clear about what I’m doing and there’s nothing in there to justify (claims). I rely on the public to see through any undermining of me.”“I have a track record, it speaks for itself and you know if someone is convicted and sent to prison, (then) the first thing they say to the prison guard is I didn’t do it. So the evidence there will speak for itself. Criticism against me, I used to have broad shoulders, they’re not broad anymore, for me, its water on the duck’s back.”Sittlington was hired by the British in January 2016 and seconded to SOCU. As a result, British High Commissioner Quinn also defended him against the accusations of undue influence. According to Quinn, Sittlington’s Terms ofThe Special Organised Crime UnitReference mean he has to advice SOCU on cases, no matter which Government is in power.“If the Government changed tomorrow, Sam would be able to continue on based on the Terms of Reference,” Quinn related. “The first mentor we provided to SOCU was in 2014, under the previous Administration. So there is no link to UK assistance to SOCU to one political administration.”Two days after a number of former Government officials were arrested and questioned, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan, along with SOCU Head Sydney James and Dr Sittlington, were seen at a popular city café. They appeared to be clinking glasses in an extremely celebratory atmosphere in the dimly lit establishment.The parliamentary Opposition had been critical of this seemingly cozy friendship and had urged that the matter be probed. When asked about it, Sittlington denied anything untoward had occurred. Noting that he had to be friendly with the persons he worked with at SOCU, Sittlington was adamant that he had paid for his own food and drinks and played down the episode.ToRThis publication was able to view Sittlington’s employment Terms of Reference. His job will include a detailed review of all current investigations being carried out by SOCU. He is also mandated to provide advice and guidance on each case, as well as make recommendations on lines of enquiries to follow.Sittlington will also advice or assist in liaising with other internal and external agencies, to facilitate probes. He can also advise the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Attorney General’s Chambers on procedure for general and specific criminal matters. The expert is also tasked with liaising with the Judiciary with respect to money laundering and asset recovery cases.The ToR details that Sittlington will “conduct meetings, workshops, research and discussion with key stakeholder agencies to assess and evaluate the impact of economic crime; conduct training needs analysis of SOCU and partner agencies and address gaps in operational requirement; Review previous recommendations and their implementation or not, reassess, modify through discussion with partner agencies.”He also has to review the impact of the new State Asset Recovery Bill on the unit’s investigations by discussing and meeting with the State Asset Recovery Agency (SARA); nor does his role end here, as he will be the liaison between SOCU and the Barbados-based Regional Security System (RSS).The ToR adds that he will be submitting a quarterly report detailing activities during the reporting period for review to the UK National Crime Agency and the British High Commission; annual reports are also required to close off each financial year. It is understood that Sittlington will be on and off the job for six months at a time, up until 2020.last_img read more

Fort Nelson looking to join NPHL for upcoming season

first_imgRyan Carter is the President for the Fort Nelson Yeti Senior Hockey Club. He says the organization has sent out details of the proposal to the member teams already, and the motion will be voted on at the league meeting.“We’ve sent out an information package to each team so that they know most of the information,” he says. “They’ll vote on it at that meeting, then we’ll know.”Carter recognizes that full membership in the league for the upcoming season may be difficult, but that isn’t deterring the group, as they have support from the Fort St. John Senior Flyers.- Advertisement -“We know we’re in a real uphill battle for this upcoming year. I’ve talked to a lot of the teams, and obviously playing off and on for the Fort St. John Flyers, I know that I have their support, and we really appreciate that up here,” he explains. “For the upcoming season, it could go either way. I know that there’s not a lot of support from the Eastern teams, being a smaller town, so we’re planning for both case scenarios at this point.”The team feels it has a strong proposal to present to the league. The proposal involves a number of points, including covering the travel costs for visiting teams for the first season as they travel to Fort Nelson.“Obviously our first plan is we’d like to be a part of the league. We’ve put together a really, really strong incentive for a one year trial,” Carter argues. “We think it seems really fair on paper, and there’s zero risk for the league. We’ve put in a package where we would cover the other teams travel costs in the first year, so they have zero financial risk.”Advertisement Aside from having a great facility for hockey, Carter says that fans have always come out to support hockey in Fort Nelson whenever there has been a team. “There was a senior team in Fort Nelson, it was very successful up here. When we did have here, the arena was packed every night for two years,” he states. “There’s a lot of hockey fans here. With my experience playing in the North Peace Hockey League, and the Chinook Hockey League, I just wanted to bring that to our town. We have a brand new arena here, and they’re putting on a 38 million dollar leisure pool attached to it. With an arena like that to host games, it’s a shame that there isn’t one here already. We’re looking at this long term to have some entertainment for our town.”If the team isn’t accepted as a member for the upcoming season, the organization is open to a number of alternatives, including a system similar to what the Fort St. John Flyers, where the team was not eligible for the post-season. The group also intends to join the league for the following season if the application for the current season is rejected.last_img read more

Boeing site eyed for RV, movie use

first_imgLONG BEACH – The site of the former Boeing 717 plant could play a bigger role in Hollywood or serve as an RV haven. The Planning Commission voted unanimously late Thursday to allow Boeing Realty Corp. to broaden the potential interim uses for the defunct plant while company officials finalize long-term plans for the 54-acre site. While originally limited to office or manufacturing uses, the Boeing plant could potentially be used as a production studio for the entertainment industry, storage for electronic servers, indoor recreation, or indoor storage for recreational vehicles and trailers. Boeing has talked with a movie company regarding the studio possibility, but officials declined to identify the studio.

Many RV and trailer owners have complained about a lack of affordable storage facilities. “I thought about that (storage) when I looked at those buildings because they are large enough to handle the largest RVs you can possibly think of,” Lakewood City Councilman Larry Van Nostran said. “It would be a great use for the time being.” The commission’s recommendation now goes to the City Council for approval.

To print out a Standing Order Form and for more information visit the club website at www.milford.donegal.gaa.ieSenior Men Milford forced a play-off in their Junior A championship Preliminary round tie with Naomh Padraig, Lifford after a nail-biting win in Lifford on Sunday.Milford went into the game as underdogs following Lifford’s comprehensive victory in the first leg last week, however, they started the game superbly with Chippie Barrett kicking the first point in the fifth minute. Pauric Curley dobled the lead two minutes later, before the excellent Chippie Barrett showed his strength to brush off two tackles and fire over the bar.David Curley added another point before Lifford registered their first point. The intensity of Milford’s tackling made it very difficult for Lifford to move the ball out of defence. Luke Barrett pointed a free before a Lifford effort was granted a white flag despite clearly being a foot wide.Three more points from Lifford followed to see them go into the break a point up. Milford were slow out of the blocks in the second half, and two more Lifford points punished them for their complacency. Milford went 22 minutes without a score before Pauric Curley kicked a great free from near the sideline in the 40th minute.Two minutes later, the only goal of the game arrived through a Pauric Curley penalty. Cathal McGettigan’s incisive run through the heart of the Lifford defence caused uncertainty and he was eventually fouled as he entered the large rectangle. Pauric Curley took the responsibility and he coolly sent Shaun McBrearty the wrong way with his kick. Lifford scored again to level the scores but then Cathal McGettigan showed his class with a wonderful point after good link up play with TJ Evesson.With only a point between the sides the tension was rife and the hard-hitting continued. It was a full seventeen minutes until the next score when Pauric Curley converted a free after Chippie Barrett was fouled.The second half was very stop-start, yet no-one could have anticipated the 12 minutes of injury time that referee allowed but crucially Milford were able to hang on. The final whistle was greeted with relief and satisfaction in the Milford camp and they now set up an intriguing play-off against Lifford in the coming weeks.
