Mixup at U.S. Bureau of Prisons over Identity of Dr. Malachi York and Son,…

first_imgDr. Malachi Z. YorkFollowing Dr. Malachi Z. York’s over 16 years of imprisonment already served in the United States of America, this newspaper has established, through a reliable research, that the name Dwight York, which has been accorded Dr. York by both the Middle District Court of Georgia and the Bureau of Prisons (BOP), is not his name but that of one of his sons, Dwight Totten York.The question that lingers further in this finding, is whether Dr. York was aware that both the court and the BOP actually recorded the name that belongs to his son as his name when they proceeded with their activities involving him.According to the United States Pre-Sentencing Investigation report, which consists of paperwork that the judge used to help determine the right way to punish a defendant, as was filed against Dr. York on April 1, 2003, it has Dwight York, who is said to have been born in Boston, Massachusetts, on June 26, 1945.Contrary to this information, however, the Daily Observer has in its possession a Certificate of Vital Records from The Commonwealth of Massachusetts State Department of Public Health, where Dr. Malachi Z. York is said to have been born.The record states:  “A search has been made of the records in this office for the birth of Dwight York, throughout the records of the Commonwealth for the years 1941-1950, and that said record has not been found.”According to Dr. York’s son, Dwight Totten York, he stated in an affidavit that the mix-up on the issues of identity and status began in the early 1990s when Dr. York purchased land in Eatonton, Georgia, on which development began and where Dr. York came to serve his Consulate Post for Liberia.In an affidavit written by Dwight Totten York under oath on April 9, 2009, he said: “I, Dwight Totten, A.K.A. Dwight T. York, attest to the fact that I did sign documents for my father Malachi York in the name of Dwight York within Putnam County, Georgia, for permits and deed recordings which is the reason some documents say my name Dwight York and some names say Malachi York and some say both.” He added, “in conclusion, I am Dwight T. York, and my father is Malachi York. I went into town to apply for and sign paperwork in order to obtain various permits for the structures that once existed on the 404 Shadydale Rd. property.”There seems to be much conflicting information on the World Wide Web when it comes to who is Dr. York, or who is Dwight York, as previously reported by the Daily Observer. Wikipedia, for example, shows that Dr. York is a convicted “child molester” and “rapist”, which is not stated on his judgement signed by the presiding judge for the Middle District Court of Georgia, Judge C. Ashley Royal.On the Internet, it is reported that Dr. York was convicted in the biggest child molestation case in the United States, but after thorough perusal of his judgement, as previously reported, it came to be known that Dr. York’s actual charges were: Conspiracy to Transport Minors in Interstate Commerce for Unlawful Sexual Activity; Conspiracy to Travel in Interstate Commerce for Unlawful Sexual Activity With Minors; and Conspiracy to Structure Cash Transactions to Evade Currency Transactions Reporting Requirements.Since Dr. York’s incarceration, there has been a plethora of recantations that seemed to have gone unreported by many of the news sources that earlier covered the case.The Daily Observer has in its possession affidavits of recantation of four alleged victims, witnesses who initially testified against Dr. York but later, in affidavit and under oath, made changes to their statements. Ebony Hill, who according to the United States Middle District Court transcripts, initially testified against Dr. York on the 13th of January, 2004, in her affidavit in which she testified in front of Notary Public Colisha A. Butler on April 27th, 2009, stated the following in her recantation:“The reasons I testified untruthfully against Mr. York at trial is because the law enforcement agents threatened me by saying that I abandoned my son. I was also afraid of going to jail because the FBI said that my name was involved in some very serious things. I was so scared of losing my child and intimidated by the FBI. I just went along with their story of Malachi York being a child molester.”With efforts exerted by the Garlawolu Law Firm, Dr. York’s naturalization records, which accorded him Liberian citizenship, were found at Criminal Court “B” in Monrovia. With this development, the Liberian Government is now expected to prove to the U.S. Government that Dr. York is not a U.S. citizen any longer and should be granted freedom from imprisonment and subsequent repatriation to Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Improved power supply for Mabaruma residents

first_imgResidents of Mabaruma, Region One (Barima-Waini) are expected to benefit very soon from improved power supply after the new solar farm is added to the power generation mix.The solar farm in Mabaruma, Region OneThe Department of Public Information (DPI) has reported that the $264 million solar farm located at Khan’s Hill, Mabaruma, is now complete as it relates to its construction and installation. Additionally, swift works to finalise automatic switching from the generator to the solar farm are still being undertaken by the contractor.Meanwhile, Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson, in a statement, has said that the automatic switching from solar power to the generator during cloudy days or during the rainy season was not yet ready. He noted that there were half-hour storage batteries in place for when it was overcast for more than half an hour, so that the generator will automatically switch on.“The system is a hybrid system whereby during the day when the sun is up, the whole town would be powered by the solar farm. Solar is intermittent, so, therefore, you may be having a 100 per cent solar, then a cloud passes over and you drop from 100 to 80 per cent. On a cloudy or overcast day, the difference between what the solar power is producing and what the town needs will have to be augmented by the generator … it [the solar farm] produces 400 kilowatts, so we have batteries for 400 kilowatts for half an hour if there is no sun,” Minister Patterson said.The initiative is part of the Government’s plan to move Guyana towards becoming a ‘Green State’, and will act as a medium to reduce the fossil fuel bill within the country as well as to prevent carbon emissions.Other solar farms at Lethem, Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo); Mahdia, Region Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) and Bartica, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) are also expected to be established.last_img read more

State prisons department discloses billions in contracts

first_imgCalifornia’s prisons department is disclosing details of more than $4 billion worth of contracts, nearly four years after it and other agencies were ordered to provide the information to improve spending oversight. The long delay ran afoul of a 2003 state directive stipulating it was “required” and “critical” for details on state contracts to be entered into a huge computerized library kept by the state General Services Department. “It’s something that’s been a work in progress for years,” California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation spokesman Seth Unger said. “The goal is to be able to provide greater transparency in our contracts.” The department turned over the massive database early in the week. General Services still was working Friday to post the records to its public Web site. The release of the documents came after an investigation by The Associated Press exposed oversight problems with the database. The AP found the state Justice Department had improperly shielded from the public hundreds of contracts it labeled “confidential.” The agency has since revised its policies for using the label and is working to release more records after lawmakers threatened to withhold money from the agency. The state Transportation Department also used the confidential label on hundreds of contracts, even though General Services never gave it permission do so and was unaware of the practice, the AP found. The database was created in 2003 under former Gov. Gray Davis to bring order to a mishmash of aging bookkeeping systems across state government that made it virtually impossible to keep a tight rein on the expenditure of billions of taxpayer dollars for everything from toilet paper to shotguns to software. Contracts in most cases are public records; the database is intended to provide greater visibility over how agencies select and pay contractors. General Services warned agencies in 2003 they could lose the authority to buy goods if they failed to list all contracts and purchases of more than $5,000 in the computerized records, formally known as the State Contract and Procurement Registration System. The DGS never curbed the Corrections Department’s buying power, however, despite the long wait for compliance. “While there have been significant delays and significant technical and operational difficulties … we have nevertheless succeeded in getting their information,” General Services spokesman Bill Branch said. “That, after all, was the object we were striving for.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Woman arrested in check forging scam

first_imgCOVINA – A Temple City woman was arrested Wednesday after allegedly writing more than $10,000 worth of forged checks created with information stolen in car break-ins, officials said. Police received a call about 7p.m. from the Wal-Mart Supercenter, 1275 N. Azusa Road, reporting the suspect was attempting to make about $300 in purchases using both a check and an ID that appeared fraudulent, said Covina police Officer John Malinosky. As store security approached the woman, she tried to run away, but was captured by responding police officers, Malinosky said. In further investigations, police discovered the driver’s license she was using as ID had been stolen in an auto burglary, Malinosky said. Officers also found her receipts for other purchases, which were also made with forged checks all over Los Angeles County, said Malinosky. Area CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens pharmacies were among the stores where she allegedly passed forged checks, Malinosky added. Apparently, the woman would break into cars and use the information she stole from them to create fake checks on a computer, explained Malinosky. The suspect would go back to the stores later and return the items for cash, Malinosky said. Sheree Bersane, 32, was arrested on suspicion of forgery, ID theft, possession of stolen merchandise and burglary, said Malinosky. news.tribune@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2105 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Murray River Coal construction to begin after receiving needed approvals

first_imgVancouver based HD Mining says it plans to begin construction of the Murray River Coal project in the South Peace, once it receives the necessary permits and approvals with operations to begin three years after the start of construction.The project is the first underground coal mine approved in this province in over a quarter of a century, with the latest estimated capital cost at $668 million.The Province issued an environment assessment certificate to HD Mining International last week, albeit with 24 conditions, developed following consultation and input from First Nations, government agencies, impacted communities and the general public.- Advertisement -They include the hiring of an independent environmental monitor to determine if the company is complying with the conditions, and developing a plan to share company information and identify measures to avoid impact on Treaty 8 rights.The mine, with a 25 year operating life will annually produce up to 4.8 million tonnes of high quality, steelmaking, clean coal, and it’s now estimated it will create 780 jobs during operations.It will be located about 12 kilometers south of Tumbler Ridge, and is the first proposed long-wall coal mine in British Columbia.Advertisement Energy Minister Bill Bennett claims it is proof government’s policies are working to attract global investment in BC’s mining sector, and South Peace MLA Mike Bernier says, “Those of us living in this area know Tumbler Ridge sits on some of the best metallurgical coal in the world, and this project has the potential to once again make this community one of the busiest mining towns in the province”.Longwall mining has a history dating back to the 17th century in England, but the technology has changed considerably, and in this case, H-D Mining, after winning federal government approval to hire foreign workers, needed a 2013 federal court ruling, to push back an organized labor challenge of the decision.However the company then confirmed it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Northern Lights College to develop a training curriculum to help to transition long wall mining skills and jobs to Canadian workers.last_img read more

About time Dodgers show fans some fight

first_img Now they know how the fans feel. This was supposed to be a bad thing, an altercation between two such important members of what passes for the batting order, stoking the doubts about whether the front office cares enough about clubhouse chemistry. Presumably, the Dodgers are as upset as their fans, and it’s nice to see one or two of them show it. There’s a sign of life even as the chances of catching San Diego and Arizona are dying. Why wouldn’t somebody boil over Saturday? It’s Miami. It’s afternoon. It’s 90 degrees. In Florida, 90 degrees feels like 290. It’s the kind of day when even Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes would be snapping at each other. It’s the day after the Dodgers fell five games behind the Padres again after losing to the Marlins on a two-run single by (of all hearts and souls) Paul Lo Duca. Why shouldn’t somebody boil over? The Dodgers should be as disappointed as anybody in baseball about what’s happened to their season. They started out as division-championship contenders after a 93-win, division-title year and all kinds of roster changes. Then they opened with 12 wins in 14 games. After what’s gone on since that 10-games-over-.500 start, the Dodgers should be fighting mad. Mad at the winter moves that didn’t work out. Mad at the trade-deadline moves that weren’t made. Mad at the injuries that took Eric Gagne away from them, cost them several weeks’ worth of Bradley and Jose Valentin and Jayson Werth, and still leaves them without J.D. what’s-his-name, you know, the right fielder. Mad at being third in the National League West, a division that’s sitting there for them or anybody else who could get to (and stay at) .500. About a month ago, Odalis Perez’s complaint that he’d been singled out for criticism in a team meeting seemed as if it might get people’s blood pumping, but things quieted down all too soon. Maybe it’s just the nature of the individuals on the coaching staff and the roster, but everybody’s been copacetic when somebody should be jumping up on a table. After losing to Florida again Monday, the Dodgers are going to have to go 25-13 the rest of the way just to finish 81-81. No matter what manager Jim Tracy says, that’s quite a stretch, seeing that their best 38-game stretch so far this season was 22-16. Saturday’s confrontation came after a game in which Bradley didn’t score from first base after Hee-Seop Choi came home from second on Kent’s seventh-inning double. Bradley ended up scoring the winning run on a bases-loaded walk by Werth in what became an 11-6 victory. Kent told reporters the blowup didn’t stem from “one incident” and was the result of “a buildup of frustration of our season.” Good. Dodgers-watchers, knowing the personalities, have been predicting a Kent-Bradley run-in since spring training. If this is the form it took, the club not only got off cheaply, it should welcome the display of passion. By the next day, the clubhouse mood must have been back to normal. The Miami Herald reported that Dodgers pitcher Brad Penny bet a batboy $500 Sunday that he couldn’t drink a gallon of milk in less than an hour without getting sick. Other Dodgers players put up money, pumping up the wager to more than $1,000. The batboy got the milk down, but he couldn’t keep it down. “I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time,” Penny was quoted as saying. I don’t know what Kirk Gibson would say about clubhouse pranks when the Dodgers are clinging to a pennant race. I say I liked it better when they were fighting.

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! It remains unclear exactly what happened between Jeff Kent and Milton Bradley after the Dodgers’ victory Saturday over the Florida Marlins. From the sound of things, somebody got mad at somebody, and then the second somebody got mad at the first somebody, and so everybody on the team had to sit through a meeting. Imagine that, Dodgers getting angry. center_img So why does it feel like the best thing to happen to this team since the giveaway caps arrived with “LA” spelled correctly? Because it was about time somebody got mad, creating a stir too serious to be contained by the normal walls of secrecy. In the absence of details, let’s assume the Bradley-Kent confrontation began with a baseball argument and didn’t get physical or racial or inappropriately personal. Assuming that, if there’s anger in the air, well, what took so long? For months, a controlled rage has hung in the air around Dodgers fans, who rank No. 2 (behind the Yankees’) in the major leagues in ticket-purchasing this season and have been rewarded with the No. 24 won-lost record. last_img read more

Security Council united in stance on Syria resolution

first_img But the Syrian resolution was the first that won unanimous approval and threatened possible future action against a country under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter – which allows the use of military force. France and the United States – who were on opposing sides over Iraq – co-sponsored a resolution in September 2004 demanding that Syria withdraw its forces and intelligence operatives from Lebanon, and they were joined by Britain in pushing the latest resolution demanding Syrian cooperation with the Hariri probe. The initial draft threatened sanctions against Syria, a move opposed by Russia, a close ally of Damascus, as well as China and Algeria, the Security Council’s only Arab member. Ambassadors from the five permanent council nations – the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France – conducted intense negotiations to try to reach agreement on the resolution. But it took a rare trip to New York by the foreign ministers of the five veto-wielding countries to clinch the deal over dinner Sunday and early-morning talks on Monday before the vote. “We are a club and we try to work together,” Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Andrey Denisov said of the five permanent members, who are known as the P-5. Was the P-5 cooperation on Syria a good model for future council action? “Very good, very good! Very encouraging, very encouraging!” Denisov replied. China’s U.N. Ambassador Wang Guangya said the unanimous vote for the resolution showed the importance of trying to strengthen the council’s unity “by accommodating each other” instead of pushing for votes when members are divided. “I believe that the P-5 should strengthen their cooperation because it is clear that whenever the P-5 have a common position, it’s better for the Security Council to move in an effective way,” he said. “I think there should be more ministerial meetings.” France’s U.N. Ambassador Jean-Marc de La Sabliere said Thursday the council’s unanimity not only isolated Syria but would make it easier for the council to react to the next report from chief U.N. investigator Detlev Mehlis on whether Syria has fully cooperated with the inquiry. That report is due when his mandate ends on Dec. 15. In his initial report, Mehlis said the bombing that killed Hariri and 20 others could not have been organized without Syria’s knowledge – a claim Damascus vehemently denies. Syria withdrew its military from Lebanon in April, in part because of the outcry over Hariri’s killing. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But it did approve a resolution authorizing military force in November 1990 by a vote of 12-2, with China abstaining and Cuba and Yemen voting “no.” In March 2003, however, the United States, Britain and Spain were forced to drop a resolution seeking authorization for military force against Saddam because of certain veto by France and opposition from a majority of council members, including Russia and Germany. They opposed the rush to war and wanted U.N. inspectors to have more time to search for weapons of mass destruction. The crushing diplomatic failure left the world body bitterly divided and Washington marching toward a military confrontation without international support. Since then, the council has worked to adopt many resolutions dealing with postwar Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo and other crises. UNITED NATIONS – More than 2 years after the bitter rift over the Iraq war, the U.N. Security Council united against Syria and showed that it could speak with a single voice on a difficult and contentious issue. The United States, Russia, China and other key players said the give-and-take in negotiations on the Syria resolution and its unanimous approval were hopeful signs that the council is putting past differences behind it. The resolution threatened further action if Syria doesn’t cooperate with a U.N. investigation into the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. It was adopted Monday in response to last week’s report by U.N. investigators implicating top Syrian and Lebanese security officials in the Feb. 14 Beirut bombing, and accusing Syria of not cooperating fully with the probe. “I thought it was a good example of how the council can work together effectively,” U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said of the negotiations. last_img read more
