Court Jails Pakistani Refugee for ‘Selling Fake Immigration Documents’

first_imgDefendant Mohammed Ad Adal handcuffed and being escorted by a court officer to the Monrovia Central Prison.jpg – Advertisement – A Pakistani national accused of helping some officers of the Liberia Immigration Service (LIS) – formerly Bureau of Immigration and Neutralization (BIN) – to illegally sell immigration papers to foreigners, some of whom reside in Liberia, was yesterday sent to jail by the Monrovia City Court.Mohammed Ad Adal, who lives in the country on a refugee status, was charged with multiple crimes that include issuance of fake immigration documents, economic sabotage and forgery.Yesterday’s decision to send defendant Adal to the Monrovia Central Prison came about when his family members that escorted him the court failed to hire a lawyer to secure his bond, as his crimes qualified him for bail.He was arrested on March 26 this year following a tipoff to security officers assigned at the Roberts International Airport in Margibi County, where he had gone to receive two of his countrymen, Basharat Mahmood and Zaheer Ahmad, who he had invited into the country.That decision was taken after the LIS alleged that they were authorized by a search warrant from the Careyburg Magisterial Court, outside Monrovia, to arrest Adal.According to court document, defendant Adal admitted to his crime when he was investigated and later named officer Musa Konneh as the one who supplied him the immigration documents. The whereabouts of Konneh remains unknown.Adal also had in his possession ‘fake immigration papers’ for Mohmood and Ahmad that he wanted to use to change their status and date of arrival in the country, the record alleged.The document further claimed that defendant Adal’s action runs contrary to his status as a refugee, but did not say whether he would lose his status.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Daly, granted Thomas’ request to withdraw his pleas, and prosecutors said they planned to file new charges. CAMP PENDLETON – Marine Cpl. Trent Thomas calls himself a religious man, but few people in a military courtroom Thursday were prepared for the “epiphany” he had the night before. Less than a month after detailing his role in the death of an Iraqi man, Thomas withdrew his guilty plea to kidnapping and murder. One defense attorney said Thomas had an epiphany after the first day of a sentencing hearing that featured damaging testimony from another squad member. Thomas, a devout Christian who enrolled in Bible school before joining the Marines in 2002, didn’t say what changed his mind overnight. His attorneys gave few clues. “He doesn’t believe in his heart what he did was wrong,” defense lawyer Maj. Haythan Faraj said. “He told me, `I want to fight.”‘ last_img

Arsenal’s top-four hopes suffer major blow with 3-0 loss against Crystal Palace

first_imgArsenal’s hopes of finishing in the Premier League’s top four suffered a potentially fatal blow as they suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Crystal Palace on Monday.Victory had been imperative for an Arsenal side that had won only two league games since January but the abject display with Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic all scoring for Palace only heaped more pressure on manager Arsene Wenger.Sixth-placed Arsenal, who have finished in the top four in 20 consecutive seasons under Wenger, now have 54 points from 30 games — seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, who have played a game more.”It’s damaging of course,” a seemingly dispirited Wenger told Sky Sports when asked about how serious the blow was to their chances of Champions League football next season. “That’s the most difficult thing for us tonight.”Rejuvenated Palace, winners of four of their previous five league games under Sam Allardyce, started confidently and opened the scoring when former Tottenham winger Townsend swept the ball home at the end of a smart passing move after 17 minutes.Palace striker Christian Benteke then had a goal ruled out for offside before Cabaye’s superb curled effort and Milivojevic’s penalty in five second-half minutes completed a miserable night for Wenger at a raucous Selhurst Park.Palace stay 16th but now have 34 points from 31 matches, six more than Swansea City, who occupy the final relegation place in 18th and have played a game more.”All we can do is apologise for that performance,” Arsenal’s Theo Walcott said after Arsenal fans had sung ‘You’re not fit to wear the shirt’ at their players.advertisement”It was a great three points and a well needed-three points,” Townsend said.”Sam Allardyce has been incredible. He looks to have worked his magic again.”Arsenal started shakily against in-form Palace and within the first seven minutes Cabaye had wasted a dangerous shooting position before Milivojevic blazed narrowly wide.Arsenal settled into a period of possession but Palace were a constant threat on the break and it was a long ball from a goalkick that yielded the breakthrough.After Benteke won a header, a neat passing move ended with Townsend stroking home a cross from the slipping Wilfried Zaha, high past Emiliano Martinez.In response Arsenal created a few chances via Alexis Sanchez but the hosts looked capable of scoring whenever they ran at Arsenal’s fragile defence.Benteke had a goal ruled out for offside after the break before Palace added a well-deserved, quickfire brace.First, Cabaye met Zaha’s cross with a superb, first-time effort before the impressive Milivojevic converted from the penalty spot after Townsend was fouled.Without some desperate last-ditch defending Palace, revitalised in their past six games, could have scored further goals.last_img read more
