Double Olympic sprint champion Elaine Thompson-Herah was disqualified from the women’s 100m at the Diamond League meeting in Lausanne on Friday as her Jamaican compatriot Shericka Jackson lost in a close finish to Aleia Hobbs of the USA.

Thompson-Herah caused a shock in the stadium as she came out of her blocks well before the gun to further deplete the field as earlier the other Jamaican – Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce pulled out due to a muscle sprain she experienced during warm-up earlier.

The 35-year-old Fraser-Pryce was the red-hot favourite in a race billed as a re-run of the recent world final, where the Jamaicans swept the medals in Oregon.

Hobbs seized the opportunity to win in 10.87, just ahead of Jackson, who clocked 10.88.

Marie-Josee Ta Lou of the Ivory Coast finished third in 10.89.

The grandmother of a missing 11-year-old recalled that on Friday morning the boy met her in Castries where she gave him some groceries and a bus fare and urged him to head home.

“I gave him a dollar and I tell him go home straight – take transport and go home,” Celina Anthony recalled telling her grandson Levi Darcie.

But she recalled that sometime later she heard from her granddaughter that Levi had fallen into the Castries River which swept him away.

And the grandmother disclosed that the missing child’s father and uncle had died by drowning.

“I think that’s really sad. Your father get drowned, your uncle get drowned – same thing. Two brothers” Anthony told St Lucia Times.

She said Levi liked friends and playing football.

The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS), the police, and concerned citizens have been searching for the missing 11-year-old.

SLFS spokeswoman Annia Mitchel said at 11:44 am officers from the Castries Headquarters were dispatched on the search and rescue mission after reports that an 11-year-old boy fell into the Marchand river near Black Mallet.

“An extended search along various points along the Marchand River with the combined assistance from the Marchand police and the Marine Police Unit was unsuccessful,” Mitchel said.

La directora de la Oficina de Administración y Transformación de los Recursos Humanos del Gobierno de Puerto Rico (OATRH), Zahira Maldonado Molina, firmó un acuerdo el viernes, con el director de la Administración de Servicios Médicos de Puerto Rico (ASEM), Jorge Matta González, para la revisión del Plan de Retribución de dicha entidad.

En la firma del acuerdo estuvo presente el presidente de la Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT), Gerson Guzmán López, en representación del personal unionado de la entidad.  La revisión del Plan de Retribución de la ASEM va dirigida a hacerle justicia salarial a los empleados de la entidad gubernamental. Asimismo, el recién firmado acuerdo está en cumplimiento con la política pública establecida en la Carta Circular OSG-2022-002, intitulada: “Procesos de Revisión y Actualización de los Planes de Clasificación de Puestos y Retribución en las Corporaciones Públicas”, emitida en febrero de este año.

Por su parte, Noelia García Bardales, secretaria de la Gobernación, afirmó en comunicación escrita que “es política pública de esta administración del gobernador Pierluisi procurar que nuestros servidores públicos tengan justicia salarial. Este acuerdo que firmamos hoy es resultado del esfuerzo que estamos encaminando para que las agencias del gobierno y las corporaciones públicas cuenten con un Plan de Clasificación y Retribución que beneficie a los trabajadores del sector público”.

Maldonado Molina, titular de la OATRH, destacó que personal de su agencia con el peritaje en la administración de recursos humanos, será el encargado de revisar el Plan de Retribución de la ASEM para atemperarlo al mercado laboral.

Con relación a la firma del referido acuerdo el licenciado Matta González, director ejecutivo de la ASEM, indicó que con el mismo estamos cumpliendo con el compromiso salarial para todos nuestros compañeros.

“Agradecemos al Gobernador, al personal de La Fortaleza, al Secretario de Salud y a la licenciada Maldonado Molina, por su compromiso y colaboración con este esfuerzo que desde hace meses hemos estado realizando”, agregó Matta González, al indicar que con este plan “no sólo le haremos justicia salarial a los compañeros que están trabajando con nosotros, sino que nos convertirá en más atractivos a la hora de nombrar personal en el Centro Médico de Puerto Rico”.

En la firma del acuerdo estuvieron presentes: la vicepresidenta de Administración de la Autoridad de Acueductos y Alcantarillados (AAA), Keralia Moreda Rodríguez, en representación de la presidenta ejecutiva, y Luis De Jesús, presidente de la Unión Independiente Auténtica (UIA) de la AAA. “Hemos tomado pasos importantes en esta dirección con la implementación de las nuevas estructuras salariales. Sin embargo, la AAA tiene el interés y el compromiso de atender de manera comprensiva el tema de la justicia salarial con la revisión de los respectivos planes de clasificación y retribución”, sostuvo Moreda Rodríguez.

“Es importante resaltar que, conforme a la política pública establecida, las entidades gubernamentales tienen la obligación de negociar con los sindicatos, los términos y condiciones de empleo de los empleados que éstos representan tomando en cuenta las disposiciones de la Ley 26-2017, entre otras disposiciones legales y conforme a la realidad económica y fiscal de cada entidad”, sostuvo Maldonado Molina, directora de la OATRH.

Finalmente, la titular de OATRH, exhortó nuevamente a las corporaciones públicas a iniciar procedimientos de actualización de sus respectivos planes de clasificación y retribución en pro de sus trabajadores.


No designarán FEI a fiscal auxiliar del Departamento de Justicia

Black Immigrant Daily News

The content originally appeared on: Radio Isla TV

Panel sobre el Fiscal Especial Independiente (PFEI), no nombrará un fiscal especial independiente a la fiscal auxiliar del Departamento de Justicia (DJ), la licenciada Zulma Delgado Colón tras coincidir con la recomendación que le remitió el DJ.

Este caso se originó con un referido al Departamento de Justicia de parte del Negociado de Investigaciones Especiales (NIE), mediante el informe, titulado “Incidente Complejo Correccional 501 Bayamón”. El mismo se relaciona con un caso en que un confinado intentó ingresar a dicha institución carcelaria un paquete que contenía sustancias controladas, luego de que regresara a la institución tras comparecer como testigo del Ministerio Público.

Agrega la información, que la fiscal Delgado Colón había autorizado la entrega del paquete en la institución penal y como tal, se vislumbraba la posible comisión de conducta delictiva por parte de la fiscal y de otros funcionarios del orden público. Sin embargo, de la investigación surge que al momento de entregarle el paquete al confinado, la fiscal Delgado Colón le solicitó a una oficial correccional que lo revisara antes. Al así hacerlo, no se identificó evidencia ilegal alguna por parte de dicha agente.

La División de Integridad Pública y Asuntos del Contralor (DIPAC) del Departamento de Justicia, realizó una investigación preliminar sobre este asunto, que incluyó un análisis amplio y minucioso de toda la prueba, así como entrevistas al personal correccional de distintos niveles.

Entre los hallazgos y recomendaciones de la investigación preliminar de la DIPAC, se concluye que, la evidencia testifical, documental y digital obtenida no relacionan a la fiscal Delgado Colón con los elementos legales del delito de posesión e introducción de objetos a un establecimiento penal.

A tenor con dicho informe, el Secretario de Justicia estuvo de acuerdo con lo concluido por la DIPAC y recomendó al PFEI que no se designara un fiscal especial independiente.

Conforme a lo expuesto, el Panel ordenó el archivo definitivo de este asunto. No obstante, ante la posibilidad de que otras personas no comprendidas bajo la jurisdicción del PFEI pudieran haber cometido delito, el Panel puso a disposición de Justicia el expediente remitido por si ese departamento investiga esa posibilidad.

Hinds outshines Russell

With the score on 50-2, TKR played the right move and promoted Andre Russell up the order, as compared to when the sent him in at number six in their previous encounter. Russell and Akeal Hosein would attempt to revive TKR in the remaining 24 balls. But mystery spinner Waqar Salamkheil outfoxed Hosein, sending him back in the pavilion for duck. Terrence Hinds came to the crease and alongside Russell they rallied along slowly. There was no muscle Russell as he struggled to hit the bowler, however, Hinds found some form in the last over and smacked Ronsford Beaton for 1,6,6,4. He fell the next ball for 23 off 9 balls, but Seekkuge Prasanna ruined Beaton’s figures smashing the last ball for a maximum, Andre Russell remained not out on 13 off 12 balls.
