She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. Vicky PhelanPhotographer – Paul Sherwood [email protected] LIMERICK woman who exposed the CervicalCheck scandal says that new laws are needed to enshrine management-level accountability in the public service.Vicky Phelan was speaking at the launch this week of a new support group set up with Lorraine Walsh and Stephen Teap, named 221+ after the number of women who have been affected by false-negative smears and withheld information.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The three were on hand for the launch of the new group at Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park, Dublin.Ms Phelan said she did not want to see a commission of investigation “as it would drag on for years and no-one would be accountable in the end. “We’re living in a country where people can get away with things at a management level and not be held accountable,” said Ms Phelan, who exposed the issue by refusing to sign a confidentiality agreement on getting a court settlement against the US laboratory which read the failed smear tests.“Until we start fighting and jumping up and down to try to get it, we’re not going to get accountability. We can’t sack people in this country.”The mother-of-two said that if the campaign she started helps other victims, that gives her a sense of purpose.She also paid tribute to her fellow campaigners. “There isn’t a chance in hell that I would be standing here without Stephan Teap and the other women and families who have been affected by this”, she said.  221+ will offer an opportunity for those affected by the scandal to support each other as well as advocate for change in the health service. “One of the things I will be looking at is legislation for accountability, not just in the health sector but across the public sector and the civil service because we just don’t have it in this country,” she said.Meanwhile, the proposed establishment of a private tribunal to deal with claims arising from the CervicalCheck scandal received a cautious welcome from the 221+ group although it was disappointed Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s commitment to a “totally non-adversarial” process was not followed through.The tribunal, similar to court proceedings but held behind closed doors, was proposed by Judge Charles Meenan in a Government-commissioned report.Ms Phelan urged Health Minister Simon Harris to provide assurances on how the adversarial nature of such a process can be minimised.”Her solicitor Cian O’Carroll, who is also representing several other of the women affected by the scandal, said it added to the choice of options open to his clients.“The problem is the tribunal is in private and it shields the State and labs from the public knowing about negligent errors. Women must also prove their case in an adversarial system,” he said. Limerick on Covid watch list Advertisement Local backlash over Aer Lingus threatlast_img read more

Taxpayers of Bayonne: wake up!

first_imgTo the Editor:As evidenced by today’s news article, concerning possible eminent domain proceedings against local businesses, this mayor and city council will stop at nothing in giving the big developers everything they want. Could your home be next?With all the new residential development being proposed in the city, who do you think will have to pay for all the new infrastructure required? 2,500 units at the military base, 1,300 units at the old Texaco site, 300-plus units at North Street, 250-plus units at the old Hi-Hat. If only half of the above units have a school-aged child, we’re talking about approximately 2,100 children, enough to fill three additional schools. Currently, all the schools in Bayonne are pretty much at max capacity. So where, will all these new children go? Who will be responsible for paying for new school buildings, or purchasing and refurbishing older ones? You, the taxpayer. This is in addition to the extra teachers, police officers, firefighters etc. who would be needed to cover these areas. I’m sure garbage/recycling contracts would increase, as well as maintenance, winter salting and other costs. Meanwhile, the developers walk away with millions in profit, moving on to their next project, and the taxpayers are left holding the bag. Our city council deems fit to grant tax abatements, which provide schools with less funding than if tax abatements weren’t granted, and bring in fewer taxes.We don’t need further large residential development in town. We need industrial development. Less strain on our resources, more local jobs, more taxes charged, less out of our pocketbook.Last year, we had a school increase in the tax rate of 6 percent because nobody seemed to know where millions “disappeared.” Now another 3 percent proposed increase. We still haven’t received a clear explanation from the Board of Ed, or mayor, explaining where that money was used. Also, who is being held culpable for it? Last I checked, the Business Administrator, and Board of Ed president are the ones to oversee expenditures. The accountant isn’t the one signing the checks. So don’t blame him.It’s up to us, the taxpayers, to keep things in check. Do you want to see large developments, with towering buildings overshadowing our homes, ruining our city? Or, should we slow things down, and keep development and taxes stable? Decide what you want Bayonne to look like, and how much you want to pay for it. DAVID FALANDYSlast_img read more

Lebanon judge issues 5 new arrest warrants over Beirut blast

first_imgA Lebanese judge leading the probe into Beirut’s deadly port blast issued new arrest warrants on Monday for two officials and three Syrian workers, a judicial source said.”Investigating judge Fadi Sawan interrogated director of land and maritime transport, Abdel Hafiz Kaissi, and director of the port, Mohammed al-Mawla… then issued arrest warrants against them,” the source said.He then questioned and issued arrest warrants for three detained Syrian workers who had allegedly carried out welding at the port’s warehouse number 12, hours before the explosion, the source added. Security sources have suggested welding work could have started a fire that triggered the blast, but some observers have rejected this as a theory pushed by the authorities.Lebanon has refused an international investigation into the country’s worst peace-time disaster, but the Lebanese probe is being aided by foreign experts, including from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation. France, which counted among the dead several of its citizens, has launched its own enquiry. The move brings to 21 the number of people arrested in Lebanon’s probe into the monster blast at Beirut’s port on August 4 that killed at least 188 people, wounded thousands and ravaged swathes of the city.Hundreds of tons of ammonium nitrate had been stored unsafely in the warehouse for at least six years, it emerged after the explosion, sparking widespread outrage over alleged official negligence that many said was to blame for the blast.Sawan was expected to question four more port officials on Tuesday, the source said.It remains unclear what exactly sparked the explosion.center_img Topics :last_img read more
