Mother denies her son was sexually assaulted by Region 1 Chairman

first_imgThe mother of a 23-year-old young man who was allegedly said to have been raped by the Chairman of Region One (Barima-Waini) is refuting such claims, saying that the accusations are false and may be centred on a political agenda by her son’s uncle.Shirley Gibbs, the mother of the young man in question, said that her son had left their home in Mabaruma on February 12, 2019 and returned on the same afternoon, intoxicated.She said that shortly after he attempted to take his life twice and that is why she contacted Regional Chairman Brentnol Ashley to help her transport him to Georgetown for medical and mental health treatment.Regional Chairman Brentnol Ashley“He (the Regional Chairman) said he will see a possible way to assist me. On Thursday afternoon at 2 pm (14:00h), he came by me and said he spoke with some Indigenous people in Georgetown and that the only way he can assist is for me to get a referral from the Mabaruma Regional Hospital which I did. On the Friday morning, Mr Brentnol Ashley, said he was willing to assist me in bringing him, my son, accompanying him out of Georgetown. He brought my son at the Amerindian Hostel where he stayed all the time.”Gibbs stated that on the Monday following her son’s arrival at the Amerindian Hostel, he was taken to a clinic by a nurse and he subsequently returned to the Amerindian Hostel. However, she explained that was when the false allegation about the Regional Chairman began to surface.“From that Monday onwards, Allen Adams, who is the uncle, start broadcasting, start talking a lot of ill things about how the Regional Chairman bring my son to Georgetown … and how he interfere with him and how he left him in a hotel room and abandon him for three days. On February 20th, he (Allen) sent out a cell phone and $3000 at the Amerindian Hostel.”Mother of the alleged victim, Shirley GibbsThe distraught mother further explained that the young man’s uncle sent money for him at the Hostel again and then subsequently sent his son to retrieve her son from the Hostel and take him to an aunt’s residence in Soesdyke, East Bank Demerara. This was something she knew nothing of, and never permitted.“And my son was there for three days. He doesn’t notify the supervisor at the Amerindian Hostel, because when I came out the Saturday, the March 2, I was told by the caretaker there that my son was out without her permission,” she explained.According to Gibbs, on Monday, the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) and its probation department took her and her son to a location on the East Bank of Demerara, where they spent most of the day answering questions as part of the ongoing investigations into the matter. She said after this, they had to visit the Brickdam Police Station.“They ain’t do no mental test … all they do is because what is written in the papers… a physical test … that is the only test they did at Brickdam and the doctor there at Brickdam said ‘what you bring this boy here for? This is politics’. And the Police say ‘do it, man, do it’,” Gibbs revealed.The woman added that all she wanted is for her son to receive the necessary mental treatment so that they could return home to Mabaruma, and for his uncle to stop using her ill child as a political weapon.The woman divulged that her son was born in Venezuela, but at age 15, he began to have seizures and other physical ailments.On Saturday last, Social Protection Minister Amna Ally told the media that the Child Care and Protection Agency had launched an investigation into the sexual allegation.Meanwhile, since the surfacing of the allegation, the Regional Chairman has refuted the claims, saying that he believes that the accusation is being instigated by the A Partnership for National Unity/ Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition Government officials in the region who have been continuously targeting him.The Chairman assured the residents in the region that the allegation was a mere attempt to stain his name and was false and wholly malicious.He added that he has since contacted his lawyer who is presently examining the best way forward. Ashley explained that the allegation was a “direct result of the desperation of the APNU/AFC clique, who is faced with defeat all around, especially with the successful no-confidence motion which necessitates the Government having to face new elections at which they will be defeated again”.last_img read more

(NewspixIrl)Actor Gerard McSorley has been arrested and has appeared in court in Donegal today charged with a disturbance outside a B&B in Dublin.The Donegal-based star was fined €200 and warned to get treatment for his alcohol problems following the incident. The 63 year old star of many films including Veronica Guerin, Angela’s Ashes and Warhorse, appeared at Letterkenny District Court on foot of a bench warrant.McSorley was arrested by arrangement and brought before Judge Paul Kelly.The charge related to a disturbance outside a Bed and Breakfast on St Stephen’s Green at 2am on November 6th last.The actor had been given station bail but failed to appear before Judge Hugh O’Donnell on November 28th and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.Garda Rory Harrison, who arrested McSorley at his home at 1 Cul Na Toinne, Magheraclogher, Bunbeg gave details of the incident.He said Gardai had approached McSorley on the steps of a Bed and Breakfast following complaints that he was causing a disturbance.They warned him to stop but he continued to make desist and cause a disturbance and was eventually arrested under the Public Order Act.The actor appeared in court wearing jeans, a striped jumper and a fleece.He told the court that he did not have a solicitor but that he was pleading guilty to the charge.The court was told that McSorley, who is originally from Omagh in Co Tyrone, had a number of previous convictions for being drunk and disorderly and using threatening and abusive language.In 2001 at Kilmainham District Court, he was charged with impersonating a member of An Garda Siochana for which he was fined €50 and was also fined €200 for drink-driving on the same occasion.Judge Paul Kelly asked McSorley what he was doing to address his problems.The actor, who sat at the back of the court, stood up and spoke in a quiet voice.He told Judge Kelly that he had been receiving medical help for his condition.“I am doing everything I can to remedy this. I have spent the last five weeks in a psychiatric unit. I was released two weeks ago and I am under the care of doctors.“I’m going to AA meetings and I apologise to anybody I have hurt. This isn’t in my character to behave badly but with alcohol I have made mistakes.”Judge Kelly said the problem seems to stem from alcohol and those problems would continue unless he addressed them.“I am doing that now,” responded McSorley.The judge then warned him that if he accumulated similar convictions the courts would have no choice but to deal with him in a severe way.“On this occasion I will deal with it with a fine. Get your act together,” warned Judge Kelly.McSorley replied that it won’t happen again.He was fined €200 and was escorted back to his address in a Garda patrol car.He is due before the local courts again in June charged with careless driving.JUDGE WARNS DONEGAL-BASED STAR HE NEEDS HELP FOR HIS ALCOHOLISM was last modified: January 21st, 2014 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:AlcoholismGerard McSorleyJudge Paul KellyLetterkenny District CourtPublic Order Actlast_img read more

Detective Allen Devers of the Thousand Oaks Police Department said although the thieves would look for unlocked vehicles, they would sometimes break windows if they saw something valuable inside. The four suspects were identified as Roger Sciacca, 27, of Simi Valley; Richard Naranjo, 33, a transient; Erin Carrell, 18, of Northridge; and Erin Szabo, 25, of Moorpark. Police said they were arrested Dec. 12 and 13 on suspicion of possessing stolen merchandise. Naranjo and Sciacca were being held without bail, and bail for the two women was set at $10,000 each. Investigators said they had connected the stolen property to 40 burglaries and the number might go much higher. Two men and two women have been arrested in dozens of burglaries in Los Angeles and Ventura counties in which the thieves broke into unlocked vehicles at shopping centers or residential garages. Detectives from the Thousand Oaks Police Department announced the arrests Friday as they concluded a four-month investigation into the burglaries that stretched from the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys to Ventura. “We’re calling this Operation Grinch,” said Capt. Gary Pentis, adding that the thefts occurred between August to early December, when the thieves took holiday gifts from people’s cars. “They were very active thieves, active five or six nights a week, looking for cars in residential garages and shopping centers,” Pentis said. “A lot of what they took was high-quality electronic equipment, computers and cameras.”last_img read more
