The Guyana Energy Agency’s (GEA) Fuel Marking Division (FMD) has been able to seize over 11,000 gallons of illegal fuel for 2017 as part of its fight against fuel smuggling. The GEA dispatches teams of inspectors across the various administrative regions in Guyana to take and test samples of fuel to determine whether it has been legitimately imported into the country.“At the end of November 2017, 32,027 samples were collected from 12,033 sites representing 91 per cent and 83 per cent of the respective targets for 2017. The total quantity of fuel seized for the same period was 11,794 gallons of diesel and gasoline as a result of 28 discoveries of illegal fuel at various locations,” the GEA said on Saturday.Additionally, the GEA has been able to secure five convictions for 2017 and according to the body’s legal officer, Thandiewe Benn, since the implementation of the Fuel Marking Programme in 2004; they have been able to secure a total of 49 convictions. She added that the work of the GEA to stamp out fuel smuggling is heavily dependent on the support from the Guyana Police Force, the Guyana Revenue Authority, and the Guyana Defence Force’s Coast Guard.The GEA added that the FMD’s inspectorate arm continues to conduct surveillance activities on suspects in the fuel smuggling network with support from the collaborative agencies.To date, several personalities and their suspected areas of operations have been under surveillance at various times and at least 37 operations have been conducted during the nights targeting suspected smuggling operations. The joint operations, as well as surveillance operations, have significantly contributed to the discoveries of illegal fuel recorded for the year.In July, the GEA and the GRA also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in an effort to continue cooperation and collaboration in the conduct and monitoring of petroleum operations.Under this MoU, both parties remain affirmed in their respective mandates, while continuing to ensure sharing of information, conduct of joint investigations and surveillance and use of mutual resources to guard against the scourge of fuel smuggling activities to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations of Guyana. The inter agency collaborations for 2017 have resulted in 36 joint operations being carried out, the GEA noted.

NEW YORK (AP) – An estimated 90.7 million people watched the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, the largest Super Bowl audience since 1996 when the Steelers last played in the title game. That was 5 percent more than the 86.1 million people who watched the New England Patriots beat the Philadelphia Eagles last year, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. When the Dallas Cowboys beat the Steelers in 1996, there were 94.1 million people watching. The Steelers beat the Seahawks 21-10, but the game wasn’t really decided until the final five minutes or so, which helped keep the audience glued to the set, said Larry Hyams, ABC research executive.
Councillor Gary Doherty has criticised the Government over the slow progress made during its time in office to address the high levels of unemployment across the Finn Valley.The Sinn Fein politician said the percentage drop in the number of people signing on the Live Register in the region during the period was lower than that of the average across the county.Cllr Doherty said “Shortly after the current Fine Gael/Labour government came to power the total numbers signing on the Live Register in the Finn Valley was recorded as 2,674 as of January 2012 – this includes claimants of both Jobseeker’s Allowance, Jobseeker’s Benefit and other registrants.” “Since then, and despite the much lauded economic recovery and the constant government hype that unemployment levels are falling, the latest figures reveal that there are only 521 fewer people on the Live Register series in the Finn Valley following the most recent data recorded in November 2015.”While the amount of people registered in Donegal who were in receipt of Jobseeker’s Allowance and Jobseeker’s Benefit is down overall since 2012, the total percentage reduction in the Finn Valley is lower than the county average which means that the region continues to have a disproportionately high number of people signing on.Cllr Doherty added “In fact, between April 2012 and April 2015 the total numbers receiving Jobseeker’s Benefit in Ballybofey fell by only 241, while during the same period recipients of Jobseeker’s Allowance dropped by a mere 204 claimants.”“According to last month’s data, there are still 2,153 people on the Live Register across the Finn Valley, and any reduction to these numbers since the coalition’s time in office must also be viewed in the context of the numbers of people who have emigrated in search of work, the total numbers of whom aren’t known.” “These Live Register figures tell a very harrowing picture of the extent to which unemployment continues to affect the Finn Valley and the spin which the government continues to propagate about the economic recovery proves beyond all reasonable doubt that the only jobs which they care about saving are their own.”HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN FINN VALLEY AREA SLAMMED was last modified: December 15th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:CLLR GARY DOHERTYdolefinn valley
A Letterkenny man has been charged with controlling prostitution in Derry.The man, who was charged under the name Razan Nocolae Gros, 25, was charged with controlling Romanian women for the purposes of prostitution.However Derry Magistrates Court heard how his fingerprints also matched fingerprints taken by Gardai in Donegal which belonged to a man known as Christian Toplicean. Gardai had previously issued a bench warrant for Toplicean’s arrest on September 15th last.An officer in the PSNI’s organised crime branch told Judge Barney McElholm that the defendant’s flat was searched on Monday.The defendant and a Romanian woman whom the defendant said was his girlfriend were inside the property.The officer said “paraphernalia associated with prostitution” had been found.He said the defendant told the police he had been living there for about three months.The police witness said officers seized eight mobile phones, a sum of money and 12 sim cards for use in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.Several of the sim cards were marked with female names, which police believe to be the names of prostitutes operating on both sides of the border between Donegal and Derry.The officer said that during the interview, the defendant denied that the Romanian woman in his flat was a prostitute and that the flat was being used for the purposes of prostitution.However, he said that several friends would visit the flat for 10 to 15 minutes.The officer said one of the mobile phones was examined by a forensic officer who found links which he believed related to six prostitutes who advertised online.The officer said the defendant’s fingerprints were taken and shared with Gardai.Mr Gros was remanded in custody.DONEGAL MAN CHARGED WITH CONTROLLING PROSTITUTION IN DERRY was last modified: January 18th, 2012 by StephenShare 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:Derryletterkennyprostitution

The brochure for the original Donegal Town by-pass in 1999.It was yesterday fifteen years ago that saw the official opening of the Donegal by-pass.The road, which cost £19M, was officially opened to traffic on July 27th, 1999.It was the first major road scheme carried out under contract for Donegal County Council. Other by-passes including the Mountcharles by-pass and the Bundoran/Ballyshannon by-pass would follow.Others by-passes including Ballybofey as well as Letterkenny have been mooted but have never come to fruition.Documents from the time show the 8.3km by-pass required 660 tonnes of steel, 4,500m3 of concrete, the excavation of two million tonnes of earth and rock as well as the acquisition of three houses and 110 acres of land.

A two-week-old baby fox has been rescued after being found all alone without any trace of his mother or fellow brothers and sisters. The cub, which has since been transported to a registered wildlife rehabilitation centre, was in the care of the Twin Towns Lost and Found Dogs group but as he needed a more experienced bottle feeder for the night, Animal In Need Donegal was only too happy to help.Usually, the fox would have been snuggled up safe with his siblings in his warm underground den, but at around two4 weeks old he would have no way of survival on his own.
