As security guards hustled around, their earpieces buzzing, and journalists and members of Ban’s delegation chuckled nervously and gathered themselves, the prime minister’s interpreter, with barely a pause, pressed ahead and finished translating Ban’s last comment. Al-Maliki made one more statement – about plans for a regional conference in April – then turned to Ban and asked quietly, “That is enough?” “Yes,” Ban replied, and the two men disappeared through a door into another part of the house. Iraqi leaders played down the incident. Asked later what the reaction had been among the officials gathered elsewhere in the house, Ahmad Chalabi, the Shiite politician and former exile, shrugged and said, “Nothing.” While Iraq’s politicians may have become somewhat inured to the violence, the United Nations has not. The organization has been operating at low staffing levels since a truck bomb exploded next to its headquarters in Baghdad in August 2003, killing 22 staff members, including the chief U.N. representative in Iraq, Sergio Vieira de Mello. BAGHDAD, Iraq – A mortar shell fired into the heavily fortified Green Zone landed about 80 yards from the home of Prime Minister Nouri Kamal al-Maliki on Thursday while he and the U.N. secretary-general, Ban Ki-moon, were holding a news conference to mark Ban’s first visit to Baghdad. Like most such attacks on the Green Zone, a favorite target for insurgents with mortars and rockets, the bombing caused some structural damage but no casualties. Its greatest impact was felt in the symbolic realm. Seconds before the shell struck, Ban said he was considering expanding the U.N. presence in Iraq because of an improvement in the security situation. The deafening explosion seemed to unnerve the secretary-general, who like almost everyone else in the room ducked his head as windows shattered outside and flecks of plaster drifted down from the ceiling. Al-Maliki barely shifted. A bodyguard rushed up to al-Maliki and grabbed his arm in an effort to lead him to another room, but the prime minister brushed him away, saying sharply, “It’s nothing.” When the bodyguard did not relent, the prime minister turned to him and snapped, “Go!” After initially withdrawing most of its non-Iraqi staff, the United Nations has gradually rebuilt its presence here, though staffing levels dipped around the New Year because of growing security concerns. The United Nations now operates from a well-protected compound inside the Green Zone – a Green Zone within a Green Zone, as it were – and its non-Iraqi staff members rarely travel in Baghdad or elsewhere in Iraq.
Editor’s note: It’s Politics reports Saturdays on the ins and outs of Whittier-area politics and city government. When the Montebello Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee endorsed the two incumbents for the upcoming Nov. 6 City Council race, it reflects a new trend. In the past, many chambers of commerce have avoided getting involved in these kinds of races, but more and more are choosing to endorse, said Denise Davis, vice president for media relations for the California Chamber of Commerce. “The voice of business in a local community is an important one,” Davis said. “Chambers are realizing the power of their voice, and they want it heard.” However, Councilman Bill Molinari criticized the decision to endorse at all. “They’re basically choosing up sides and because of the variety of political views and relationships with different people, the chamber would be better off to stay impartial and not endorse,” Molinari said. “The people they’re endorsing may not win the election,” he said. “How do you then suggest that you have a productive relationship with people you didn’t give a chance to be considered.” Molinari said he especially resented the endorsements because no forum was held to get all of the candidates’ views. Reactions like Molinari’s are reasons that some chambers stay out of the endorsement business. And in fact no other Whittier-area chambers endorse in city council elections. “We represent 700 businesses and maybe some of them would be in favor of one candidate or another,” said Chris George, president of the Whittier Area Chamber of Commerce. “We always felt that is wasn’t in our best interest to have some kind of rift between the businesses,” George said. “So we just stayed out of that kind of stuff.” Stacy Cripe, executive director of the La Mirada Chamber of Commerce, said it’s usually the larger chambers which are more likely to endorse. “They usually have some kind of leadership program,” she said. From that, you can get good candidates, she said. In La Mirada, it just hasn’t been necessary to endorse, she said. Mail items for It’s Politics to the Whittier Daily News, P.O.

The Montebello chamber began endorsing four years ago as a way of increasing its influence, said Albert Napoli, chairman of the chamber’s PAC. It endorsed Bob Bagwell and Norma Lopez-Reid in this year’s election. “They’ve made some pretty tough decisions for the betterment of the city,” Napoli said. For example, the city’s budget has gone from a $1 million deficit to a $1.5 million surplus without a tax increase, he said.

Donegal protestors at a previous march. Pic by Northwest Newspix.Right2Water Donegal are organizing a protest at the Donegal County Council Chambers in Lifford on Monday April 13th assembling at 9.30am.The council will be meeting that morning to take care of any unfinished business from the previous Council meeting.The purpose of the protest is to register , once again, our opposition to Water Charges, by having reps. from Right2Water across the county hand back , bin or dispose of Water bills outside the seat of local government. The local Right2Water group will also present a letter to the County Councillors and the County Manager.Owen Curran from Right2Water West Donegal said; ‘ This letter will contain the concerns of people whom we are in regular contact with through our campaign, for example- Why did the County Manager proceed to hand over the details of Council tenants to Irish Water , despite a direction from Councillors not to do so?’It has also been widely noted that on November 14th last year the Donegal County Council voted in favour of a motion calling on the government to abolish water charges, they also voted in favour of holding a referendum on water ownership. All the councillors present voted in favour and one abstained. Philip Mc Fadden of Right2Water Inishowen said- ‘What people are asking us is, what work ,if any has been done by the councillors on these issues since?’.Another area of concern that people have raised is around the water metering programme being rolled out across the county at the moment. Right2Water will also be questioning why there is no proper monitoring of the work being carried out by installers ,especially around issues of health and safety and quality of re-instatement of footpaths for example. Owen Curran said ‘ We realise the time of the protest is quite early , however we picked this time to make sure we could distribute this letter to as many councillors on the day as possible. We know this is due to be a shorter meeting. We ask all those who are standing against water charges and who have decided not to pay to come and join us’.

The Special Criminal Court has today ruled that statements made by a man admitting his part in the murder of a man in Co Donegal more than three years ago can be admitted in evidence.Defence counsel for Martin Kelly had challenged three statements made by him to gardaí in which he admitted driving Mr Andrew Burns from Strabane, Co Tyrone across the border to Donnyloop where he was shot dead.However, today, the three-judge court ruled that the statements, two made while in garda custody and the third to two senior gardaí in the North, were admissible in evidence. Kelly is on trial for the murder of Mr Burns whose body was found by a group of teenagers in the car park of a church at Donnyloop in Co Donegal in 2008.It is the prosecution case that Kelly was part of a joint enterprise to lure Mr Burns from Strabane to Donnyloop where he was shot twice.The shooting was heard by a group of five young people from Clady, Co Tyrone who were walking in the area.Martin Kelly (aged 36) a bus driver, residing at Barrack St, Strabane, Co Tyrone has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Mr Andrew Burns (aged 27), an unemployed man, at Donnyloop, Castlefin, Co Donegal on February 12, 2008.Kelly’s trial began last month but after two days of evidence the court started a “trial within a trial” to decide on the admissibility of statements made by Kelly while in garda custody in Letterkenny and a statement made by Kelly to two senior gardaí at a hotel in the North.The “trial within a trial” lasted 12 days and the evidence heard was treated by the court as part of the evidence of the trial proper.STATEMENT MADE BY MAN ADMITTING HIS PART IN MURDER CAN BE USED was last modified: November 17th, 2011 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:ANDREW BURNSDonnyloopMARTIN KELLYmurder
