Maintaining Minster Tah Undermines the Law

first_imgCllr. Tiawon Gongloe on Tuesday, January 28, expressed concerns that the decision made by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to maintain Cllr. Christiana P. Tah as Justice Minister and Attorney General could undermine the rule of law in the country.“Since the High Court’s suspension of Minister Tah, the President should have acted immediately by declaring that coinciding with the judgment the Minister is hereby suspended,” Cllr. Gongloe suggested.“If that had been done maybe her suspension would have been for a shorter period,” Cllr. Gongloe added.Minster Tah, who is Dean of the Supreme Court, was suspended on January 10 by that High Court from practicing law in the country for six months.She was suspended after the High Court held her in contempt for her role played in releasing FrontPage Africa Managing Editor Rodney Sieh, on “compassionate leave” from detention at the Monrovia Central Prison.  According to the leading human rights activist, the Court’s action was to defend the integrity of the rule of law.“If somebody in authority acts in clear violation of the rule of law, then the High Court is under obligation to take strong action.”“If the Supreme Court can take such an action against the Minister of Justice, then it is protecting the independence of the Court,” Cllr. Gongloe maintained.“In my mind the honorable thing for Minister Tah to do is resign; because the law is the source of the Ministry and if you are Attorney General, you are the nation’s head lawyer,” the rights activist explained.“And if that is taken away from you what can you do as a Minster of Justice?” he wondered.“She is not truly Minister of Justice in my opinion,” said Cllr. Gongloe, “because the functions of that Ministry is to prosecute and defend all actions against the government and to give it general counsel.”“You are to review and authenticate all contracts and give opinions about what the law is to the executive; and to monitor the action of the executive to make sure it is in compliance with the law.”He continued “The only Minister under the law who disagrees with the President on the basis of the law and keeps his/her job is the Minister of Justice.  No other minister can do that and maintain their position.”Commenting further on President Sirleaf’s reluctance to suspend Minister Tah, Cllr. Gongloe maintained that “People— especially those holding high office in government— would have said since the President acted, we will be careful with the High Court.”But, according to the leading human rights activist, President Sirleaf has chosen to remain silent on the issue.“If the President does not obey the High Court’s ruling who you think in the other two branches of government will do that?” Cllr. Gongloe wondered, “It means gradually the court will become irrelevant.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Gay mayor extends invitation to Hardaway

first_img“We’re just trying to show him that there are living, breathing people that just happen to be gay,” said NorthMiami Mayor Kevin Burns, who lives with his partner of 23 years and an adopted daughter. He’s still working out details of the visit with Hardaway’s representatives and expects they will make a joint announcement Monday, Burns said. The plan is for Hardaway to join Burns and his family for a routine weekday at the mayor’s office and home – doing things like dropping off Burns’ child at school, meeting with constituents and dinner with the family. Hardaway has been hit hard since the broadcast on the Miami radio station 790-AM The Ticket, in which he said, “I don’t like to be around gay people” and “it shouldn’t be in the U.S. or the world.” Although he apologized within hours, the NBA canceled his remaining appearances at this weekend’s All-Star festivities in Las Vegas, and he lost at least two major endorsement deals. On Friday, Hardaway spent the day with his family, pleading for privacy as television cameras continued a vigil outside the gates of his Pinecrest home. Terry Washington, a spokeswoman for Hardaway, said the former five-time All-Star had not yet spoken to Mayor Burns and that an announcement would be “premature.” As the firestorm continued over Tim Hardaway’s anti-gay remarks on radio, the mayor of North Miami, who is gay, invited the ex-Heat star to spend a day with him. On Friday, Hardaway accepted, the mayor said. center_img Burns has some experience building bridges outside the gay community, since he won the mayor’s seat decisively in 2005 despite some hostility in a city without much of a gay constituency. He has been open but low-key in public about his relationship with Rob Flint, his partner, and their adopted daughter, Autumn. “I don’t expect (Hardaway) to be waving a peace flag anytime soon, even after this,” Burns said Friday. “But maybe he’ll be less likely to say something bad about people if he knows them and understands a little more.” NBA teams headed to Italy, Spain for training camp: Toronto, Memphis, Boston and Minnesota have been chosen to participate in NBAEurope Live in October for training camp and exhibition games against Euroleague opponents in the secondyear of the tour. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
