After being reportedly denied a visa to enter the United States of America (USA) for further medical treatment, on Friday, January 31, the Supreme Court broke the news about the death of Judge James Zotaa.He was said to have died in India, according to the High Court.His remains will arrive back in the country shortly.He was the Resident Judge of Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice.The late Cllr. Zotaa served as a Judge throughout the length and breadth of Liberia. He was also a Judge whom many lawyers described as “fearless.”He was the Judge who presided over the case involving three radio stations accused of spreading hate messages in the country during the 2011 General and Presidential elections. After hearing the case, he declared the stations not guilty of the charges levied against them by the government. In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer, on Monday, February 3, at the Temple of Justice, the Clerk of Criminal Court ‘A’, Sam Manubu, explained that before Judge Zotaa’s death, he was denied an entry visa for medical treatment by the US government.The reason, he said, was because the deceased failed to mention who made his referral for treatment in the US.“Judge Zotaa wrote the US Embassy asking for a visa for further medical treatment; to his disbelief he was denied,” Manubu explained in tears.According to them, he did not name any institution or individual that was referring him for the treatment.Before that, the Criminal Court Clerk said, he was advised by medical doctors at the Jackson F. Doe Memorial Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County, to seek medical treatment in the US.Apparently, these are some of the reasons that caused his death.Judge Zotaa fell ill between 2012 and 2013, after several medical treatments he was flown to Ghana.After he returned from Ghana, Manubu said Judge Zotaa wrote the Supreme Court seeking reassignment.That request was accepted and he was assigned to his residential court (Criminal Court ‘A’).Based on his improved health, the High Court assigned him to Grand Gedeh County.Unfortunately, his condition subsequently deteriorated and he was forced to abandon his assignment without completing the court term that year.It was then he decided to go for medical treatment in India, following advice from doctors in Tappita. The details and circumstances of his death are unclear.Judge Zotaa first served as a Resident Judge in Nimba County, in the 1990s, under the National Patriotic Reconstruction Assembly Government (NPRAG), under former President Charles G. Taylor.He was later appointed as Foreign Minister by that government.With his passion for the legal profession, Cllr. Zotaa moved to Monrovia. Between 2004 and 2005 he was appointed as Resident Judge of Criminal Court ‘A’ at the Temple of Justice, the position he held until his death.

Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam admitted he had mixed emotions after scoring the best goal of his career only to ultimately end up on the losing side at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.The Ex-Liverpool and Blackpool player netted one of the most memorable goals since the Premier League’s induction in 1992 by lobbing Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois from inside his own half.Adam’s stunner brought the scores level, but the Blues snatched a second half winner through Loic Remy to ensure a 2-1 win, and the Scottish international was reflective following his side’s third successive defeat.“Of course [when asked if it was the best goal of his career]. It’s an incredible strike, it’s a nice goal to score but the important thing for us is winning the game.”“On an individual level it’s great, but on a team performance it was ok and there’s a lot that we can improve on for next week.”Mark Hughes’ team face West Ham next week with both sides on 42 points in relative mid-table obscurity, and Adam thinks the Hammers will pose a stern test.“It’s going to be a tough game. They’re in and around us as well. If we can win that will keep us in the top 10, a few points ahead of them and hopefully we can do that with two homes games to come,” said the 29-year-old.

WASHINGTON – Mortgage giant Fannie Mae said Friday that it was replacing the chairman of its board’s audit committee, a key position as the company struggles to emerge from an $11 billion accounting scandal. The announcement by Fannie Mae that the board had named accounting professor Dennis Beresford to replace audit committee chairman Thomas Gerrity came a few days before federal regulators are scheduled to release a major report on their extensive examination of the government-sponsored company. The report due out Tuesday is widely expected to be sharply critical of Washington-based Fannie Mae, and the role of its board of directors in the accounting debacle is expected to be touched on. Gerrity also will step down as a director, the company said. The regulators, in the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, in September 2004 accused Fannie Mae of serious accounting problems and earnings manipulation to meet Wall Street targets. The Securities and Exchange Commission subsequently ordered the company to restate earnings back to 2001 – a correction expected to reach an estimated $11 billion. The Justice Department is pursuing a criminal investigation. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsFannie Mae, which finances or guarantees one of every five home loans in the United States, disclosed earlier this month that its government-ordered review had turned up additional accounting errors. The company hasn’t filed an earnings report since late 2004. In its announcement Friday, Fannie Mae said it was Gerrity’s decision to relinquish at this time the position he has held since 1999 as head of the audit panel. “Over the past two years, Tom has indicated that, … following the board’s corporate governance policies, this is the right moment to step down and allow the board to bring on new leadership talent and energy to guide the audit committee forward,” Fannie Mae Chairman Stephen Ashley said in a statement. “We accept his choice and decision.” Gerrity, a former dean of the Wharton business school at the University of Pennsylvania, joined the Fannie Mae board in 1991. He also previously was the president of CSC Consulting, a vice president of Computer Sciences Corp., and chairman and CEO of Index Group Inc. Beresford, a former chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board, teaches accounting at the University of Georgia in Athens. He also heads the audit committees at Kimberly-Clark Corp. and Legg Mason Inc. A company-ordered report released in February detailed a breakdown in financial controls and found an arrogant corporate culture at Fannie Mae. It said the company’s former finance chief and controller share responsibility for the accounting failures. Fannie Mae and its smaller rival Freddie Mac were created by Congress to pump money into the $8 trillion home-mortgage market to keep interest rates low. They buy and guarantee repayment of billions of dollars of home loans each year from banks and other lenders, then bunch them together into securities that are resold to investors worldwide.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SEATTLE — The Seattle Mariners, in their final meeting against the Angels this season, did their best to give their American League West foes a going-away present Wednesday. They gave back a six-run lead. Their steady second baseman kicked a sure-fire double play in the eighth inning. Their defensive whiz at third base booted an easy grounder in the ninth. They even dropped a ball on the next play and let it sit on the infield dirt for a while as the Angels ran merrily around the bases in front of 23,397 at Safeco Field. Instead, the Angels refused to win a game that was handed to them and they limped back home for their final homestand after a 10-9 loss that capped a three-game sweep by the Mariners. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “We have a chance after (a three-game sweep in) Chicago to have a pretty good road trip against some good teams at a big time of the year,” said Angels second baseman Adam Kennedy. “We pretty much blew it here.” The Angels roared back from a 6-0, second-inning deficit and tied the score at 7-7 in the fifth inning. The six-run rally was the biggest deficit the Angels have made up this season. But the good feelings didn’t last long as Seattle struck for two runs off Angels reliever Kelvim Escobar to take an 8-6, sixth-inning lead. Then things really got strange. In the eighth inning, Chone Figgins drew a one-out walk before Seattle reliever J.J. Putz got Orlando Cabrera to hit a tailor-made, inning-ending, double-play grounder to second baseman Jose Lopez. But Lopez booted the ball and everyone was safe. Garret Anderson responded with an RBI single to cut the deficit to one run, but Vladimir Guerrero halted the rally by hitting into a double play. Then in the ninth, Seattle third baseman Adrian Beltre mishandled an easy ground ball by Robb Quinlan to give the Angels a leadoff runner. Pinch-hitter Zach Sorensen followed with a sacrifice bunt to Seattle closer Eddie Guardado, who threw to Lopez covering first base. The ball went off Lopez’s glove and settled on the infield dirt between first and second as pinch-runner Maicer Izturis hustled toward third base, where he was waved home by Angels third base coach Ron Roenicke. Lopez got to his feet, grabbed the baseball and threw out Izturis, the potential tying run, at the plate. “I thought the ball was far enough that he could score easily,” said Roenicke. “I just misread the play. I feel that when I do something like that I lose the game for the team.” Pinch-hitter Bengie Molina delivered with a two-out RBI single off Guardado (2-2) to score Sorensen with the tying run. After Lopez hit a one-out double in the bottom of the ninth, Mariners shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt hit a single to left off Angels closer Francisco Rodriguez (2-5), which scored pinch-runner Ramon Santiago from second with the game-winning run. It was the Mariners’ second series sweep over the Angels this season. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
