Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York New tests confirm carcinogens were illegally dumped at Roberto Clemente Park in Brentwood and a second site in Central Islip while results are pending for another three dump sites, Suffolk County prosecutors said.After earlier tests showed the presence of cancer-causing asbestos at the two sites, the latest results confirmed that 50,000 tons of material dumped at the Brentwood park also contained DDT and Diedrin—probable and potential cancer-causing banned pesticides, respectively. The new results also found Lead, Chromium, Copper, Zinc and Cobalt, which is termed an acutely hazardous substance. Rubble dumped at the privately owned site at the corner of Route 111 and Sage Street contained metals and pesticides as well.“Children and adults who used the park…they may have been placed at risk,” Suffolk District Attorney Tom Spota told reporters during a news conference Thursday at his Hauppauge office. He later cautioned: “I don’t want to be an alarmist.”Three others sites in the Town of Islip also being investigated for alleged illegal toxic dumping include: Six homes on Veterans Way in Islandia, a Police Athletic League (PAL) ball field on Clayton Street in Central Islip and wetlands near Brook Avenue in Deer Park. Asbestos was confirmed at the PAL field but not found at the Islandia veterans housing. The test results for other contaminants at the Islandia and Deer Park sites are due next week.“We have received indication that there may have been dumping at other locations,” Spota added, noting that additional testing will likely be required to see if the pollutants leached into the underground drinking water reserves. “We are progressing, but it is a large-scale investigation.”He said that the alleged illegal dumping began last spring at Roberto Clemente Park, formerly known as Timberline Park. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation first responded to a complaint there in January and contacted the town, which told the agency that “the material was placed by mistake and had been removed,” a DEC spokesman said in a statement. The DEC responded to a second complaint there in March, when it launched the continuing joint investigation with Spota’s office.Islip town officials closed the park indefinitely on May 5. Three days later, Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone declared a State of Emergency that enables the county to investigate and assess the extent of the contaminants found at the park. New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said after visiting the park last week that his office is also investigating the alleged toxic dumping.“It is clear that this was not some sort of one-shot deal, that we’re looking at something much more systemic,” Schneiderman said. “They’re not gonna get away with this.”Islip town officials have launched an internal investigation and hired Ronkonkoma-based Enviroscience Consultants, which they said determined that asbestos found at the park is not air-borne. Spota has said that in the year prior to the closure, park-goers could have been exposed to the carcinogen through skin contact or accidental ingestion. Since the illegal dumping came to light, the town also fired its parks commissioner, terminated a contract with a tree-trimming company suspected of involvement and is preparing to sue for the estimated multi-million dollar clean-up costs.The scandal erupted as Conservative Islip Town Councilman Anthony Senft, the town board’s liaison to the parks department, launched his New York State Senate campaign on the Republican line.“As a former prosecutor I am outraged,” he said on his campaign website. “If the dumpers thought they could get away with this because Brentwood is a multi-ethnic community, they were dead wrong.”Andrienne Esposito, the executive director of the Farmingdale-based nonprofit Citizens Campaign for the Environment who is the Democratic hopeful running against Senft, called the case a travesty.“Those who dumped the asbestos should go to jail,” she said on her Facebook page. “Those who watched and did nothing should be forced out of government. Children and families who played in the park should be immediately tested.”
Landmark decision…confirms President has to give objective reasons for rejecting nomineesIn a landmark ruling issued on Tuesday, the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) has ruled that the appointment of retired Justice James Patterson as Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chairman was flawed and unconstitutional.GECOM Chairman, Retired Justice James PattersonA summary of the court’s judgement was handed down by President of the CCJ, Justice Adrian Saunders, who announced the court had decided that the process to appoint the GECOM Chairman was “fatally flawed”.He recommended that in future the Leader of the Opposition and President communicate and meet in good faith to discuss eligible candidates before a list is submitted. The court also recommended that movingPresident David Grangerforward, all parties work together, as the constitution envisions, to select a Chairman.Saunders also declared in the ruling that before President David Granger rejected persons nominated by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, reasons should have been given for the rejections in the interest of transparency.According to Saunders, the President gave no specific reason for refusing to appoint a Chairman from the lists submitted by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo. Saunders noted that the President disapproved a third list, without giving a specific reason.Saunders referenced historical facts pertaining to thePresident of the CCJ, Justice Adrian Saundersprevious appointments of GECOM Chairmen. He cited the recommendations made by the Constitutional Reform Commission in 1999, that the Chairman should be appointed through consultations.“In determining the main issue in the case, the Court looked first at the proper meaning of Article 161(2) of Guyana’s Constitution. That Article sets out the requirements to be satisfied for a person to be eligible for appointment as GECOM Chairman. It also sets out the general process for selecting the Chairman,” Saunders said.“To determine the meaning, the Court looked at the drafting history of Article 161(2), observing that changes had been made to it to promote consensus and inclusiveness by involving the Leader of the Opposition in the selection process.”TransparencyThe judge noted that the President relied on the provisions that gave him discretionary powers and insulated him from providing an explanation for excluding the Opposition leader from his final decision.Saunders said that giving the President the power to reject candidates without giving reason will frustrate what the constitution contemplates. In fact, the court decided that the President has a duty to give reasons for rejecting names in the interest of transparency.“The Court therefore found that the process was flawed and in breach of the Constitution. In a concurring judgment, Mme. Justice Rajnauth-Lee stated that by giving reasons why nominees are rejected, the President will engender greater public trust and confidence in the Elections Commission.”The Court concluded that the most sensible approach to the process of appointing the Chairman of GECOM is for the Leader of the Opposition and the President to communicate with each other in good faith and, perhaps, even meet to discuss eligible candidates for the position of Chairman before a list is submitted formally.”Saunders explained that the Court also considered objections made by Attorney General Basil Williams but found them without merit. He noted that the court found the appointment could be enquired into by the court and that such actions could be reviewed by a court. He stressed that the court has jurisdiction to hear the concerns of citizens on these matters.This case was heard by the CCJ on May 8 and was brought by People’s Progressive Party’s (PPP) Executive Secretary Zulfikar Mustapha. Mustapha challenged the appointment of Patterson who was appointed to the position of Chairman of GECOM in October 2017.At the time, President Granger had already rejected three lists submitted by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo. These lists comprised a total of 18 names of former Judges, persons eligible to be judges and prominent members of civil society.List of nominees had included anti-corruption advocate Christopher Ram, current Bar Association president Teni Housty, former GECOM Chairman, Retired Major General Joe Singh, Justice of Appeal B.S Roy (ret’d), Justice William Ramlall (ret’d), Oneidge Walrond-Allicock, Attorney-at-law and a former Magistrate, Mr. Kashir Khan, Attorney-at-law, Ms Nadia Sagar and Gerald Gouveia.
DONEGAL South West TD Pearse Doherty has heavily criticised the Government’s Jobs Plan, telling RTE’s ‘Prime Time’ programme that the figures didn’t add up.Deputy Doherty said he agreed with some of the plans put forward by the Government but said targets for 100,000 new jobs had been “plucked from the sky.”“There is no documentation to show where these jobs will come from,” said the Sinn Fein TD. “There are no real targets. This was a pre-election promise so they had to come up with something and they had to come up with 100,000.”He added: “What we have is a massive forest fire and this government has landed with two buckets of water.”The Action Plan for Jobs aims to get 100,000 people back in work by 2016 and another 100,000 by 2020. There are 270 different initiatives – with Opposition parties claiming they Coalition is re-hashing old initiatives.Earlier Taoiseach Enda Kenny hit back at Sinn Fein claims and said it was “daft” of Gerry Adams to ask how many people would be taken off the dole in the next year through the schemes. “That’s like saying how many seagulls flew over the Phoenix Park in the last three weeks,” the Taoiseach said.“This is a daft question. What you need to do is create an atmosphere and opportunity where business can flourish.”© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyJOBS PLAN: TD DOHERTY ACCUSES GOVERNMENT OF ‘PLUCKING FIGURES FROM SKY’ was last modified: February 15th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)
