Senate Receives UCMJ Bill for AFL

first_imgThe Senate yesterday received for enactment into law a Bill titled “Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) of the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL).” President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in her letter dated July 25, informed the Senate plenary that the purpose of the Bill is to provide the legal framework for jurisdictional authority for dispensing justice and the right to due process within the AFL. The National Defense Act provides that, “All members of the AFL shall be subject to the UCMJ whether on duty or off duty;” and consistent with the National Defense Act of 2008, the Bill relates to military personnel. President Sirleaf’s communication further explained that the bill relates to other personnel “including those awaiting discharge after expiration of their terms of enlistment, volunteers from the time of their muster or acceptance into the armed forces; inductees from the time of their actual induction into the armed forces; prisoners of war in custody of the armed forces and several other categories of persons connected to the military activities.”President Sirleaf recalled that over the years, personnel of the AFL were subjected to the UCMJ of the United States, as well as recommendations of the AFL Board of Inquiry and its corresponding Disciplinary Board. “This due process mechanism needs institutional affirmation, which has informed this decision to legislate the UCMJ for the AFL. In view of the foregoing and consistent with the National Defense Act of 2008, which provides that all members of the AFL shall be subject to the UCMJ of the AFL– which provides for legal obligations and protection for members of the AFL, as other citizens of Liberia, I ask for timely enactment into law of this instrument by the National Legislature.”The Bill was sent to the Committee on Judiciary chaired by Grand Cape Mount County Senator Varney G. Sherman and the H. Dan Morais-chaired Committee on Foreign Affairs to report to Plenary in two weeks.

Diego Costa: Chelsea striker has 18 per cent of the votes – click the yellow arrow to see which player is the most hated player – The Brazilian-born Spain international has only been in the Premier League for one season but has clearly annoyed quite a lot of fans. Perhaps it was his stamp on Liverpool’s Emre Can in the Capital One Cup semi-final? Or maybe it was his stamp on Liverpool’s Martin Skrtel in the Capital One Cup semi-final? 6. Fabian Delph: seven per cent hate the new Man City midfielder – click the yellow arrow to see which player is the most hated – Congratulations to Fabian Delph! Despite turning his back on Aston Villa, the club he committed his future and praised his own loyalty only to join Man City days later, the midfidler only got seven per cent of the vote. The Aston Villa fans must have adopted a ‘forgive and forget’ approach. Very mature of them. Click the arrow above, right, to see the winners of talkSPORT’s most hated footballer poll.

Raheem Sterling and Samir Nasri share the most hated footballer award with 22 per cent of the vote – It’s a tie! Apparently fans don’t like it when a club’s best young player rejects a new contract, tells the club he wants to leave, causes a public fuss and then forces through a move to Manchester City on a huge contract, worth nearly £200,000-a-week. Haters gon’ hate. 5 5 5. Emmanuel Adebayor: 11 per cent of the vote – click the yellow arrow to see which player is the most hated – The Togo international would probably have gained more than the 11 per cent of the vote had he spent more minutes on the pitch in the past few seasons. Despite leaving Arsenal for Manchester City in 2009, running the length of the pitch to celebrate scoring in front of Gooners and then signing for arch rivals Tottenham, fans seem to have directed their hatred to another former star. More on him later… 3. John Terry: 20 per cent of the vote – In at number three is the former England captain. According to our poll, one in five fans hate John Terry more than any other player in the Premier League. What could he possibly have done to provoke so much anger… last_img read more
