Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Dalbert’s agent says the left-back “loves” life at Fiorentina after two years at Inter, where “he didn’t get to express himself.” The Brazilian arrived on a season-long loan from the Nerazzurri in August after just 26 appearances at San Siro. With already 11 games under his belt, Emerson Figueroa is delighted with how his client has fared in Florence so far. “At Inter he didn’t get to express himself like he does now,” Figueroa told La Nazione. “Now he’s started to pay everyone back. “I’m constantly in touch with the Viola directors, but it’s more important that he continues to play his part in the campaign, where he so far has been a protagonist. “His performances aren’t surprising me. The fact that he is a starter under [Vincenzo] Montella is a reward for the hard work he has put in. “Dalbert is doing very well, he adapted immediately to his new club and city. He revealed he loves Florence. At Fiorentina he’s earned the faith of the coach and the board.” Dalbert and Fiorentina are back in action against Verona this Sunday, looking to bounce back from a 5-2 defeat to Cagliari before the international break.
Employment tribunals are failing to hit basic targets and judges are departing without being replaced, users have revealed. Minutes of the National User Group Meeting on employment tribunals report that tribunals are falling short of targets for completing and disposing of claims.Employment tribunals aim to complete 75% of claims within 26 weeks of receipt. However, according to the minutes, the current level of claims completed in that time stands at 67%. In terms of disposing of a claim, tribunals aspire to dispose of single claims within 26 weeks. However, the current timeframe is 29 weeks.Furthermore, judges are retiring at a rate of around five or six per year but are not being replaced – the meeting heard.User group president Judge Brian Doyle said that despite losing salaried judicial resources there ’were currently no recruitment exercises planned’. The position was similar regarding fee-paid judges and non-legal members.The minutes come from the user group’s June 2017 meeting – the latest for which minutes are available. The most recent meeting was held on 16 October. The group, made up of judges and professionals, is a forum for customers to discuss the service.A spokesperson for HMCTS told the Gazette: ’Maintaining access to justice is vital and continues to be at the heart of our reforms. Most employment tribunal claims are made within 26 weeks and the rate improved on the last quarter. We continue to look to improve timeliness in these cases.’Meanwhile, the government has again refused to reveal details of when and how people who paid the now outlawed tribunal fees will be reimbursed.A spokesperson said: ’Following the Supreme Court’s judgment we said we would put in place arrangements to refund those who have paid employment tribunal fees. We will set out further details in due course.’
Dear Editor,With each passing day, the inherent fault lines eroding the democratic purpose of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) threaten to graduate into a devastating tsunami. In fact, the magnitude of evidence in the widely circulated public media from many disappointed stakeholders puts the rebranded image of the organisation as tantamount to that of an old-time cake shop being run with hundreds of millions of taxpayers’ money.It is clear that the undercurrents have further deepened, since the strongly-challengeable, unilateral appointment by President Granger of the Chairman, Justice (retired) James Patterson. Nothing significant has so far been done by the Chairman to remedy the problematic issues at GECOM. Rather, things seem to have gotten worse, rendering the decaying grey matter incapable of adjusting to, or overseeing, a meaningful input that would cleanse the infested cake shop operations.In essence, when appointed, Commissioners have to take to the public media to air the overwhelming internal inefficacies and dirty linen permeating GECOM. It is a clear sign that we are fast approaching breaking point!Numerous published evidence -based revelations provide a very dismal picture of the many distasteful happenings being conducted within the organisation. Under Chairman James Patterson’s watch, Chief Executive Officer Keith Lowenfield acts as a lord unto himself, and has become even more emboldened to unleash another imbued ‘Town Clerk-like’ display.It was recently reported that when asked about approaches to expending on public relations projects, Lowenfield informed GECOM’s statutory meeting that once the Finance Ministry gave the accounting officer the approval to expend funds for any purpose, the GECOM Secretariat was not required to bring the issue before the Sub-Committee or the Commission.The seriousness of this erroneous response cannot be understated. Lowenfield pretends to be not any wiser following highly prosecutable findings contained in the report of the 2017 Auditor General’s examination of GECOM’s financial activities. It is clear that the procurement mechanism is being continually abused under a created guise of so-called urgent requirements for the same activities year after year; election after election. In essence, the internally applied approaches are being deliberately manipulated to accommodate fraud and handpicked beneficiaries.In a public entity such as GECOM, properly accountable practices are enshrined in the approved procurement legislation to address procedures that must be followed in the pre-procurement cycle; the cycle, and the post- procurement cycle. Critically, procedures in the law are specific to how this firm procures in terms of mandatory compliance procedures that support accountability. Particularly, they address the tender process, including forms of tendering — whether selective, public, or special; and consider strongly the Terms of Reference for the critical activities.In the GECOM setting, these do not often change, and are repeatable, since they are often informed by the plan for the specific elections and the related budget. This column, on numerous occasions, called for release of the GECOM budget, which often seems absent, abstract or lacking, in the interest of transparency and accountability.It is therefore appalling that the Commission would entertain such responses from the CEO of the Secretariat when requests for clarification are made by Commissioners.Notably, the Chairman of the Commission and the CEO of the Secretariat had, months ago, indicated the readiness of the organisation to fulfill the rudiments of the November 12th Local Government Elections.One had expected that such confirmation would have been driven by structured planning and budgeting, approved by the Commission (including all commissioners). One had expected that the execution of the Secretariat’s plan would have been strongly monitored, supported by a structured schedule that is devoid of occurrences of fraudulent financial manipulation to benefit a few. One would have expected that the high-risk elements which undermine the required level of professionalism would have been identified, and approaches to mitigate them would have been employed.Sincerely,Neil Kumar
