Tony George, the Community Policing Group (CPG) member, who was previously charged with the murder of 15-year-old Ricardo Singh, is now a free man after the charge was withdrawn by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).The Police Prosecutor had previously requested that time be granted by the court for additional statements to be obtained after the charge was laid on October 16, 2018.However, Attorney Dexter Todd strongly objected to any delay in the commencement of the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) on the grounds that the charges were bad in law and there was no evidence to substantiate the charge. After the charge was read, the Prosecutor sought an adjournment to Monday, November 5.When the case was called on Monday, the prosecution withdrew the murderTony Georgecharge.The charge had alleged that the 28-year-old man murdered the teen of Diamond, East Bank Demerara (EBD) on July 9, 2018, in the vicinity of the Soesdyke Public Road.According to Police Prosecutor Simone Payne, the victim was with several friends at a wedding house at Soesdyke, EBD on July 9, when an altercation ensued.Singh was subsequently arrested by George and was later placed in the tray of the Police vehicle to be escorted to the Police Station. The prosecution was contending that the accused and another male Rural Constable were on their way to the Police station when George allegedly stopped the vehicle, exited with the teen, and reportedly told the driver to leave.The body of Singh was discovered in the wee hours of July 9 with several stab wounds, including one to his abdomen.Based on reports received, the former Diamond Secondary School student and his friends had left their respective homes on that fateful Sunday with the intention of “taking a lime” at the Linden-Soesdyke Highway Junction, but had instead gone toRicardo Singhthe wedding house, which was close by.The young man, who would have been celebrating his 16th birthday three days after that incident, was subsequently found in a nearby trench with his intestines protruding. He was picked up and taken to the Diamond hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.Meanwhile, this publication had reported that the young man had been misbehaving at the wedding house, and the Police had been called in to intervene. However, at the time, members of the Community Policing Group (CPG) had been patrolling the area, and as such, they had reportedly arrested the young man.

McPherson said the review persuaded him to authorize Diebold’s Optical Scan and Touch-Screen voting systems, as long as counties take additional security precautions, including resetting the programmed code on the machines and keeping a written log of who has control of the memory cards. Diebold is still required to make the long-term programming changes then resubmit the machines for independent testing. Several California counties had already purchased the machines and some used them in November’s statewide special election. The machines were designed to comply with the 2002 Help America Vote Act, which in part was intended to phase out punch card ballots and other old-fashioned systems as well as standardize electronic voting systems. In an effort to meet federal requirements that take effect next year, McPherson’s office has been engaged for months in evaluating and certifying several different electronic voting machines, including those from Diebold. The North Canton, Ohio-based company is the nation’s largest manufacturer of such machines. SACRAMENTO – California Secretary of State Bruce McPherson gave conditional approval Friday for counties to use two voting machines produced by Diebold Election Systems that he had previously questioned. McPherson’s office said in December that the Diebold machines failed one of the 10 criteria he established for voting machines because the source coding, or computer language, on their memory cards was not reviewed by independent investigators. The coding performs two critical tasks – securing ballot entries and later providing instructions to election officials on how to access and tally the votes. Since then, Diebold submitted the machines to further testing by University of California at Berkeley security analysts, who concluded that some of the codes on the memory cards need to be rewritten for long-term use.

DONEGAL is celebrating tonight after hero Kevin Cassidy showed the guts to score a winning point in injury time to beat Kildare in the All-Ireland Quarter Final.The Tir Chonaill boys pulled the game out of the fire in the dying minutes of injury time – coming back from two points down.The final scoreline of 1-12 to 0-14 came in front of a 39,000 fans. It was a fairytale ending for Donegal and Cassidy.The Gaoth Dobhair man had missed an opportunity just a couple of minutes earlier.But he showed true grit to score with his left foot from outside the 45 to hit the winning point to the delight of Donegal’s fans and the utter despair of Kildare’s supporters.Christy Toye was the other name on fans’ lips at Croke Park; scoring Donegal’s goal just seconds after coming on in the second half – and the scoring the equaliser in injury time. Three Eoghan O’Flaherty points helped the Lilywhites open up a 0-5 to 0-3 lead at the break after a dour and edgy first half.But just after a disallowed goal that would have given Kildare a six-point advantage, they found themselves pinned level by a brave Donegal.Johnny Doyle’s long-range shot had come back off a post, and was gathered by full-forward Tomás O’Connor who drove to the net from close range.But O’Connor was adjudged to have been in the square, and the score was ruled out. Harshly, probably.Donegal rallied, and three quickfire points from Michael Murphy – who had come in as a 28th-minute sub after injury ruled him out of the starting line-up – Ryan Bradley and Dermot Molloy made it 0-06 apiece on 45 minutes. Substitute Christy netted with his first touch on 58 minutes, but O’Flaherty sent the tie to extra-time when Donegal were seconds away from winning in normal time.Kildare led by 0-13 to 1-8 midway through extra time, but Kevin Cassidy’s superb long range winner in stoppage time sent the Ulster champions through to the last four – and a date at the end of August with the winners of Dublin v Tyrone.We’ve a month folks to let the hearts settle…Well done to Jim and all the lads.
