Share Tweet LocalNews DAPD targets $50, 000 for annual Dollar Day by: – October 26, 2012 15 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Share The Dominica Association of Persons with Disabilities (DAPD) is once again soliciting support from the entire Dominican populace in meeting its target of $50,000.00 through its seventh annual national Dollar Day activity.Dollar Day was designed to raise funds for the association to fulfill its mandate of providing services and programs for persons living with disabilities on island.The theme for this year’s National Dollar day activity is “DAPD sustainability with support from social partners”.“This year we are seeking to raise approximately $50,000 and we are looking at faith based organizations, learning institutions, embassies and consulates, professionals, and the entire country in assisting us in meeting that target,” said executive director of the association Nathalie Murphy.She described last year’s $14,000.00 National Dollar day figures as “disappointing” but is optimistic that this year will be better.“We know that the economic situation is hard on a lot of persons, but we are hoping that they will be able to squeeze a dollar from what God has blessed them with, and contribute to a worthy cause”.“We assure them that whatever contribution they make will go back into providing services and organizing programs for persons with disabilities in Dominica,” she explained.The association is also celebrating its twenty ninth anniversary today and part of this year’s Dollar Day contributions will be used to organize activities for the 30th anniversary celebrations next year.Contributions can be delivered or mailed to the DAPD’s office or through contribution boxes across the island.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

first_img Share LocalNews Dominican attorney ordered to leave court by: – September 3, 2013 Tweet Share 65 Views   4 commentscenter_img Share Sharing is caring! A senior attorney, whilst making a bail application at a magistrate’s court on Friday, 30th August was directed to leave the court for the manner in which he addressed the sitting magistrate. Gildon Richards was ordered out of the courtroom by magistrate Bernard Pacquette following an argument between the two.The argument arose when the magistrate asked the police prosecutor to propose a bail sum in the bail application which Mr Richards made. “I told him that it was not the practice that the magistrate should ask the prosecutor what the bail sum should be before he hears the application. The magistrate told me I was not right and he was right,” Mr Richards told Dominica Vibes on Monday, 2nd September.Mr Pacquette replied that it was not the first time that he has asked the prosecutor to propose a bail sum. “I told the magistrate in all the years I’ve been practicing in the court I have not known it to be so. The magistrate then asked me for the bail sum, I told the magistrate it was left to his discretion,” Mr Richards explained. After he requested permission to proceed with the bail application, Mr Pacquette told him; “I know what your problem is, you have not practiced before me before”.To which he replied; “I know what the problem is, it is the first time you are practicing as a magistrate,” Mr Richards said. Magistrate Pacquette then ordered him to leave the court which he complied with.Mr Richards also refuted a media report that he was ejected from court on Friday. “That is totally false…no police officer touched me, no police officer escorted me. As a matter of fact, all police officers were stunned because they had not seen what I had done wrong”.When contacted, Mr Pacquette told Dominica Vibes; “Mr Richards needs to work on his attitude towards the bench and as it pertains to his lack of respect for the bench”.Mr Pacquette is a former Dominican police officer who studied in the United Kingdom and the United States. Prior to his appointment as magistrate here in May, he had been practicing in the US.According to the Magistrate’s Code of Procedure, Chapter 4:20 19 (h), “Every magistrate shall have jurisdiction to admit to bail persons charged with or committed for trial for any offence save only as hereinafter mentioned”.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
