Copyright Boss Resigns

first_imgThe Officer-In -Charge of the Liberian Copyright Office, Mr. Ernest Bruce has revealed to LIBLIFE in an interview that he has resigned.“There has been a lot of grumble to the extent that my character was assassinated, when members of the Collective Management Society charged that I took news to the international community that we have a CMO when we don’t,” said Mr. Bruce. “It seems to me that there is a lot of misunderstanding either about how this thing should be done or going on, so I have decided to step aside for other personal reasons.”He added, “I felt bad to resign since it has been my childhood dream to help build the entertainment industry in Liberia to benefit artists.” He however said that he is resolute in his decision to leave the copyright office, knowing that there are certain things in life that one cannot change and that are some that can be changed. “I can’t be part of a fight when it is clear that I did not create the CMO and never begged for the position. I was asked to do it,” he said. According to him, those that are now “fighting” him were the same people that applauded his leadership and said that he has the belief it is the time for him to give those critics a chance to do a better job. “When I accepted the position to head the copyright office I did it because of my passion for it. Now that I’m leaving, I promise to still be involved into it as a private citizen, always willing to give my expertise,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

ALLEGED DONEGAL DRINK DRIVERS WILL FACE PROSECUTION AFTER IRISH LANGUAGE RULING

first_imgDOZENS of alleged Donegal drink drivers who have had cases dismissed or held up will now face prosecution after a Court of Appeal ruling today.Lawyers had claimed the failure to provide statements in Irish and English was illegal.The District Court in Dublin involving a case there agreed as did the High Court. However three judges at the Court of Appeal today sided with the Director of Public Prosecutions.In south Donegal Judge Kevin Kilraine has dismissed a number of cases but gave the state liberty to re-enter cases.In the rest of the county District Judge Paul Kelly has adjourned cases pending the outcome of the Court of Appeal ruling.In all around 1,400 cases across Ireland have been awaiting the outcome of today’s ruling.The test case centred on Mihai Avadenei, (29), from 60 Lioscianan, Swords, Co Dublin, who had his legal argument supported by District Court Judge Conal Gibbons.Mr Avadenei was stopped at 12.50am on April 21 last year at Wolf Tone Quay in Dublin by Garda Francis McMahon who alleged the motorist had been driving at 80kmh in a 50kmh zone.Suspecting Mr Avandenei of drinki-driving Gda McMahon arrested him and took him to Store Street Garda Station.Case records show that although the Romanian national had a good command of the English language an interpreter was provided.A subsequent breath test carried out by Gda Colm McCuskey gave a reading of 52 microgrammes of alcohol per 100ml of breath. The drink-drive limit is 22 microgrammes of alcohol per 100ml of breath.Gda McCluskey and the accused driver both signed the computer print-out.Mr Avandenei was charged with drink-driving and released on bail.He appeared before the Dublin District Court where his solicitor Michael Staines argued his client should have been given a read-out of his breath test from the intoxlyser machine in both Irish and English.Mr Staines said the print-out submitted to the court was not a duly completed statement within the meaning of the 2010 Road Traffic Act as it was only in English.He submitted that the rules providing for the form of such statements required them to be both in the English and Irish languages.Therefore he argued that the document was not a duly completed statement and not admissible in evidence.Today Mr Justice Edwards overturned the High Court ruling, meaning cases can now go ahead in the district courts.ALLEGED DONEGAL DRINK DRIVERS WILL FACE PROSECUTION AFTER IRISH LANGUAGE RULING was last modified: May 10th, 2016 by John2Share 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:adjournscasesCourt of Appealdrink driverulinglast_img read more
