UNHCR, ECOWAS Court Sign Partnership Agreement


first_imgThe United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) and the ECOWAS Community Court of Justice (ECCJ) on Wednesday in Abuja, Nigeria, signed a partnership agreement on training, capacity building and information sharing.A dispatch from the Liberian Embassy in Abuja says the agreement will enable the UNHCR and ECCJ to cooperate in protecting the rights of refugees, asylum-seekers, returnees, Internally Displaced Persons (IDP’s), stateless persons and those at risk of statelessness in West Africa. Both organizations will also ensure the proper interpretation and application of relevant international, regional and national legal and policy instruments affecting persons of concern. Justice Maria Monteiro, President of the ECCJ and Madam Angele Dikongue-Atangana, the UNHCR Representative to Nigeria and ECOWAS, delivered separate speeches prior to signing and exchanging the agreements on behalf of their respective organizations.According to the dispatch, Liberia’s Ambassador to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Ambassador Dr. Al-Hassan Conteh, presented a statement on behalf of ECOWAS Ambassadors. Also in attendance was Liberia’s Justice Micah Wilkins Wright who is currently a sitting judge at the ECCJ. In her opening address, the UNHCR Representative noted that despite the positive collaboration between the UNHCR and the ECOWAS Commission since 2001, there were still challenges in the region. “The achievements should not, however, overshadow the challenges with the problems of refugees, forced migration and statelessness in the sub-region.”Madam Atangana added that the partnership came at a critical time when additional efforts were needed to improve the legal protection of persons of concern in the sub-region by ensuring the full respect of their rights. The UNHCR Representative disclosed that her agency has undertaken a number of initiatives including biannual UNHCR-ECOWAS Ambassadors retreats, the ECOWAS Emergency Response Project, and the Regional Ministerial Conference on Statelessness held in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, last year. The partnership agreement will enable both organizations to enhance their work in protecting refugees, asylum seekers, returnees, IDP’s, stateless persons and those that are at risk of statelessness in West Africa, she added. For her part, Justice Monteiro provided assurances of the Court’s full cooperation: “The ECOWAS Community Court of Justice will do everything to cooperate in remedying situations surrounding the protection of the rights of refugees, asylum-seekers, and returnees, Internally Displaced Persons (IDP’s), stateless persons and those at risk of statelessness.”Ambassador Conteh, representing the Dean of the ECOWAS Ambassadors, described the signing of the partnership as very strategic. “It would afford all stakeholders to get a better understanding of the legal complexities of these lingering problems with multifarious causes, including civil wars, post-electoral violence, border porosity and the ambiguities in nationality laws,” the Liberian Ambassador stressed.He also asserted that the signing of a partnership agreement between the UNHCR and the ECCJ would help ECOWAS Member States and their partners to further comprehend the complex rules for the attribution of nationality as efforts for the harmonization of disparate legislations are undertaken by member States in addressing the problems of refugees, IDP’s and statelessness.To implement their agreement, the UNHCR and ECCJ envision a number of activities over the next three years, including the training of staff, judges, and lawyers in the region who may bring cases before the ECCJ on behalf of refugees, asylum-seekers, returnees, IDP’s, stateless persons and those at risk of statelessness.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


Wenger must end this player’s Arsenal love affair before inflicting further damage – opinion


first_img4 There is also the possibility Arsenal themselves, inadvertently, have halted his development.In the summer of 2013, it was revealed the Gunners had to pay Southampton £10,000 for every time Oxlade-Chamberlain played over 20 minutes for the club, and this complex financial clause will no doubt have been relayed to Wenger, consequently impacting his team selection.The damage has been done, but it’s not irreparable.It might hurt the Gunners’ reputation as they look to move away from their recent status as a ‘selling club’, a label enhanced by the departures of former fan favourites Cesc Fabregas, Samir Nasri and Robin van Persie, but, for the sake of the Ox himself, it’s time he looked to flourish elsewhere. He has to step out of his comfort zone; the sad reality is he will never fulfil his potential at the Emirates. 4 A move would not be about the club cashing in; Oxlade-Chamberlain is clearly a player Wenger values having around his camp. And for the Ox himself, it wouldn’t be about bettering his wages, a desire to play with ‘bigger’ names or to move to a team better equipped to lift the Premier League title. It may be painful for him to leave the Emirates Stadium, but there would be few supporters begrudging him if he feels the need to walk away from the club he has grown to adore.Once Sanchez returns to fitness, he’ll fade further into the background and he must not allow this to go on much longer.Oxlade-Chamberlain’s love affair with Arsenal has run its course. It’s time Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain left Arsenal.Ray Wikins recently told talkSPORT Oxlade-Chamberlain has to leave the Emirates or risk missing out on a place at the 2016 European Championship finals – but this is about much more than his international career. Wearing the England shirt should be the least of his concerns right now.He is in danger of wasting the best years of his career if he remains in N5. Having made the move from Southampton in August 2011, he’s had four and a half years to make an impression on the senior squad, but Arsene Wenger hasn’t been convinced.What may be most devastating of all to Oxlade-Chamberlain himself, though, is the emergence of Joel Campbell this season. Injuries to Alexis Sanchez, and, earlier in the campaign, Theo Walcott should have seen the Ox leap from his role as a benchwarmer to a regular starter. But Campbell, who has been out on loan four times since his arrival in the same year as Oxlade-Chamberlain, has jumped ahead of his team-mate in the pecking order. And this surely means game over for the England international in north London. Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 4 Speaking in the latest edition of Sport Magazine, the Southampton academy graduate was asked, ‘any new year’s resolutions?’, and his response was simple, ‘to score more goals’.How can his target be to increase his goal tally when averaging an uninspiring 40 minutes per game in the Premier League so far this season? He should be aiming much higher than this.Of his 19 Premier League appearances, 12 have come from the substitutes’ bench, and on only four occasions has he completed the full 90 minutes. In all, he’s played a worrying 759 minutes in England’s top-flight over the past five months.Yes, he enjoyed a rare start against Stoke on Sunday, but we all know that was only because Mesut Ozil was sidelined through injury. Had the German been fit, Oxlade-Chamberlain would once more have been warming his backside on the bench.At 22, the midfielder is still in the early days of his career – recent research found a players’ peak to be around the age of 26-27 – but, with almost five years of first team experience at the highest level in the country, he should have much more to show for it.And I’m not talking trophies. 4last_img read more


Agents report quieter border


first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“They’re holding back,” Mark Mahler, a Border Patrol agent, said as he kept watch over an evacuated highway checkpoint that was closed Monday on State Route 94. The checkpoint on the two-lane highway, which narrowly escaped damage, is normally a major obstacle for illegal crossers. The fire left miles of black ash in the canyons around Dulzura, an evacuated hamlet about 25 miles east of San Diego, where dozens of homes were destroyed. Thousands of foot trails once covered by dense shrub were laid bare. Road closures due to the fire meant migrants could not meet drivers, Mahler said. Typically, migrants pay about $1,500 each to be guided through rugged canyons for hours, even days, and be picked up by someone at a roadside checkpoint for the drive to San Diego. Many illegal immigrants appeared to heed the advice of the Border Patrol and the Mexican government, aired on television and radio in Tijuana, Mexico, to stay away from the fires. The Border Patrol radio was unusually quiet Tuesday. Its motion sensors laced throughout the canyons, which escaped damaged, did not set alarms. Some illegal immigrants, however, took the risk. By Elliot Spagat THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DULZURA – One of Southern California’s largest wildfires has frightened many illegal immigrants from hiking through a popular corridor to cross from Mexico even as the Border Patrol has withdrawn some agents. Some consider the Border Patrol’s pullback an opportunity, but a three-hour drive through ash-covered hills Tuesday suggests that many others are staying put in Mexico. About 50 migrants have surrendered to the Border Patrol since the fires began Sunday, fearing for their safety. One was seriously burned Monday when he and five others sought help from firefighters, and they were all taken to a San Diego hospital, according to the Mexican consulate in San Diego. No deaths have been reported. Some of the six migrants who were rescued by firefighters Monday told Mexican authorities that smugglers convinced them the Border Patrol would be distracted, said Alberto Lozano, a spokesman for the Mexican consulate in San Diego. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BOLT’S LIGHTNING VISIT TO DONEGAL STILL ON THE CARDS


first_imgThe Irish manager of the world’s fastest man has said a visit to Donegal is still very much on the cards.Usain Bolt is still Donegal-bound!But Milford man Ricky Simms says that like Usain Bolt, it will be a lightning visitRicky is a director of Pace Sports Management and manages the likes of Bolt and Mo Farah. Jamaican star Bolt revealed he wanted to see Ireland in 2012.Ricky told Donegal Daily he is still keen to bring Bolt to Ireland but it’s a matter of fitting the date into his schedule.“It may be next year or the year after but I am still very keen to bring him to Donegal.“If we had an appointment in Europe then we could hopefully pencil it in. “It will be a matter of flying in early in the morning and out that night,” he said.Ricky admitted that Usain doesn’t know a lot about Ireland but knows Irish athletics boss Patsy McGonagle well.“I have to say he doesn’t ask me about Ireland a lot. He’s more likely to ask me if Rihanna has called and probably not Daniel O’Donnell.“But we would like to go to Donegal for Patsy McGonagle and everyone in Donegal.“We could do a questions and answers session or something like that and it could be great fun,” he said. Simms, who negotiates contracts for Bolt and other top athletes, travels the world with the running stars.Last Sunday he attended the Premiere of Class of 92 – the story of some of Manchester United’s top players in London.“It was a really enjoyable night. I’m actually a Liverpool fan but I enjoy watching all teams.“It was great to see all the players. I saw Paul Scholes and he could have been from West Donegal,” said Ricky.

HARPS HOPING TO ROLL OVER ROVERS AGAIN


first_imgFinn Harps will be looking to put to an end a winless run of five games when Shamrock Rovers ‘B’ visit Finn Park on Friday evening (kick-off 8pm).Harps haven’t won in any of their last five games, picking up just two home draws with Wexford Youths and Galway FC.Since beating the Hoops 3-0 at Tallaght earlier in the season, they have managed just one victory – that coming in the following game against Cobh Ramblers at Finn Park. The three away losses though came against the teams that many feel will be the top three at the end of the season – Shelbourne, Longford Town and Waterford United.Shamrock Rovers second string come to Ballybofey on Friday evening having won two of their last three games and sit level on points with Harps in the League table with just goal difference separating the clubs.“Shamrock Rovers have improved a lot since we played them last March, so Friday’s game will be very difficult,” said Harps boss Ollie Horgan ahead of this weekend’s game. “They have beaten both Longford and Cobh in last couple of weeks and will prove tough opposition for us.”Harps have lost their last two games – both on the road – and while Horgan felt they should have got something out of the Longford game a fortnight ago, he said they got exactly what the deserved last weekend in Waterford – nothing. “For the first 15 minutes in Waterford we were the better side but the first goal changed all that,” said Horgan. “From there on we didn’t deserve anything out of game even when they were reduced to ten men.“Our performances up to the Waterford game were hard working and honest. We were a little unlucky to lose in Longford and Shelbourne but we had no excuses on Friday in what was a disappointing display except for the start of the game,” continued Horgan as he reflected on the 2-0 defeat.“The Longford result was down to a poor penalty decision but Waterford game was down to too many players off form and a couple of individual errors thrown in on top of that. The work rate wasn’t anywhere near what it was in previous games. Having said that, Waterford have improved since we played them on the opening day of the season.”Tommy Bonner is available for selection again after missing last week’s trip to Waterford through suspension. Keith Cowan serves the third game of his four match ban while Kevin McHugh (hamstring) remains sidelined. Ruairi Keating picked up a knock in Waterford and will be assessed before Friday’s game.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TEAM NEWSSuspended: Keith Cowan.Doubtful: Ruairi Keating.Injured: Kevin McHugh (hamstring).
