Committee makes new changes to Civil Procedure Rules

first_img…changes include reforms to process for enforcing judgementsThe Civil Procedure Rules that were implemented in 2016 to simplify the conduct of civil matters in the court system have received a further update, courtesy of the Civil Rules Committee.he High CourtThe Committee has made changes to part 43 (Enforcement of judgements) and to part 53 (Stop notices and charging orders) of the Civil Procedures Rules, in alterations it has cited as the Civil Procedure (Amendment) Rules of 2019.One of the first changes is to the process for persons complying with court judgements that direct them to pay money or transfer property to the successful applicant. According to Section 43.03 of the amendments, “it is not necessary to make any demand for the money or property, but the person so directed must obey the judgement or order upon being duly served with it without demand.”The new rules also set out that when someone has won a judgement in the court upon certain conditions and they do not comply with these conditions, they are considered to have waived their judgement.It states that “any other person interested in the matter may on breach or non-performance of the condition take either those proceedings as the judgement or order may in the case warrant, or those proceedings as might have been taken if no such judgement or order had been made, unless the court otherwise directs.”Part 45 of the Civil Procedure Rules speaks to application for writ of possession, in cases where court marshals acting on court orders take possession of specified land or property. Part 43.06 of the amendments states that a judgement for the recovery of, or delivery of possession of land can be enforced by this writ.Part 43.05 meanwhile states that a judgement for the recovery of money may be enforced by writs of seizure and sale of both moveable and immovable property, as well as garnishment orders or an order charging interest in cases where money is held in shares of a company.The Civil Procedure Rules state that in cases where “a person fails to do an act (other than the payment of money) or fails to abstain from doing an act as required by an order, a person may make an application for a Writ of Sequestration (Form 47) against all or part of the person’s real or personal property, which application may be made without notice and in writing.”It defines a Writ of Sequestration as an order providing the marshal with the authority to take possession of property of someone who the court has ruled against and who has to pay money. It also empowers them to collect and hold any income from the property until the person complies with the order. In Part 43.09, it further states that judgements for paying money into the court may be enforced by the Writ of Sequestration or by attachment where it is authorised.The new Civil Procedure Rules are intended to bring Guyana in line with similar rules in the Caribbean. The Rules and legal forms span 187 pages and contain procedures for the settlement of civil matters and making payments both in and out of court. The Rules were touted as having the potential to reduce clogging of the courts by matters that could be settled.last_img read more

Anand Teltumbde seeks judicial probe into Bhima Koregaon episode

first_imgScholar and activist Prof. Anand Teltumbde on Monday demanded a judicial probe into the entire Bhima-Koregaon episode, including the recent arrests of activists across the country for suspected Maoist links and to also to take to task all those responsible for it.Prof. Teltumbde, whose official residence at the Goa Institute of Management (GIM) campus in Sanquelim in North Goa was searched as part of the recent raids across the country on Dalit intellectuals, writers and human rights activists, was delivering a talk on ‘Decimating Dissent: The Truth behind Bhima Koregaon’, organised by Dakshinayan Abhiyan at Margao in South Goa on Monday.“There should be a judicial commission’s probe into this (Bhima-Koregaon) episode and whoever did it should be taken to task. In a democracy, the State taking a posture and acting against citizens is unpardonable,” he said.Reacting to the search of his residence, he said the police could not find anything. “The search by the police was absolute fabrication and utter nonsense. They raided my residence because I had attended the Paris convention organised by the Department of Amercian Studies in Paris in April this year. But it was not funded by Maoists; neither did it have a Naxal link,” Prof. Teltumbde said. He said he had filed a defamation suit against the Pune police.On the historical background of the Bhima Koregaon protests, he said the Green Revolution was a capitalist strategy, which reduced the Dalits” to a rural proletariat. Through the post-Independence land reforms, the Congress, a “somewhat metropolitan party”, and created a class of rich farmers in rural areas that would be allied to them, he said. “They (the Brahmin landlords) were replaced by these people (the cultivators) and all kinds of markets were created. The Dalits were utterly dependent on the farm wages of the rich farmers.” He said the battle of Koregaon-Bhima of the early 19th Century was largely unnoticed and only became popular after Babasaheb Ambedkar started visiting the obelisk that was erected by the British in memory of slain soldiers in the battlefield, which included soldiers from the Mahar clan.On the legacy of the battle, Prof. Teltumbde said: “When Ambedkar came on the scene, the recruitment of Mahars in the British military was stopped. In that context, Bhima Koregaon came in handy for the Mahars to claim that they too belonged to a martial race who had sacrificed a lot.” Mr. Ambedkar’s father too was a part of this movement, and when Mr. Ambedkar entered public life, he picked up this issue, and go to the obelisk to pay his respects. “Before that, it was not noticed by anyone. It was under cantonment control,” he said.last_img read more

Much like Dalmiya, Kohli is also our hero: Kapil Dev

first_imgKolkata, Nov 14 (PTI) Indias first World Cup winning skipper Kapil Dev today compared current captain Virat Kohli with the late Jagmohan Dalmiya, terming them heroes on and off the field.”We look up to you (Kohli), you are our hero, much like Dalmiya (was off the field). You can change things and you have done this in terms of fitness which we all are proud of today.”Every captain comes out with something new and you have taken the fitness level to a new level. We, as cricketers, can say keep up the good work. You have the ability to believe in yourself, you can achieve the ultimate,” the legendary all-rounder said.Dev delivered lecture in the inaugural Jagmohan Dalmiya Annual Conclave along with Sri Lanka Cricket president Thilanga Sumathipala, and the programme was also attended by both India and Sri Lanka team members and former captain Mohammed Azharuddin.”We have two type of heroes — one is off the field and another on the field. If cricketers are enjoying today its possible because of Dalmiya, without him we would have struggled.”Terming Dalmiya the best cricket administrator in all sports in the last 50 years, Dev said: “Earlier we would ask can we get wages like Australia, England. Now all this has changed and they are now saying can we get wages like India. That has changed because of him.”A businessman known for his marketing acumen, Dalmiya was a key figure in bringing the 1987 and 1996 cricket World Cups to the sub-continent and took over as BCCI president for a second time after a gap of nearly a decade.advertisementHe passed away on September 20, 2015.Since joining the BCCI in 1979, Dalmiya played a major role in helping it to emerge as the wealthiest cricket board in the world, and Dev said the former president was quick to understand that a cricketer has a short career span of eight to 10 years.”Its important to have money on your side and Dalmiya understood that. Not everyone is Sachin Tendulkar, you only get to play 15-20 years at max and you are at your prime for eight-10 years. He ensured that you make your life in that career, that credit goes to my hero.”He wasnt the best of speakers but he was instrumental in bringing everybody together, a true leader who got things done. He was the hero of every cricketer in our country. What we are today is because of this man,” he concluded.Sumathipala remembered Dalmiyas support during the hard times when their ace spinner Muttiah Muralitharan was accused of chucking in 1995.”He was born with leadership qualities and negotiation skills by understanding and hearing all parties and settle the dispute at the best interest of everyone.”After we won the World Cup I was representing Sri Lanka at the ICC annual meeting in London where we had another issue to settle — the suspect action of Muralitharan. He helped us in addressing umpires and referees.” PTI TAP AH AHlast_img read more

Team USAs Final Challenge Beating The Hottest World Baseball Classic Team Of

YEARTEAMWINSLOSSESWEIGHTED SRSAVG OPPONENT SRS 22017Netherlands434.100.87 Includes only teams who made the WBC final or semifinals. Teams are ranked according to the Simple Rating System (SRS) for that year’s tournament, with extra weight applied to games in later rounds; SRS is scaled such that an average team is rated 0.0. Average opponent SRS is determined by all WBC games since 2006.Source: Wikipedia Before the United States began its World Baseball Classic run a couple weeks ago, I wrote about how downright mediocre the team’s track record had been at the event. Things have changed!Going into 2017, the U.S. was 10-10 in three WBC appearances, with a below-average run differential after accounting for its strength of schedule. Since the best American players were once again sitting the event out, there wasn’t much reason to think U.S. fortunes were due for an improvement this time around. Except the U.S. is now in the WBC final, beating Japan — only the most successful team in WBC history — to get there. Suffice to say, it’s been a wild, impressive ride for the Americans.But their greatest test might come in Wednesday night’s championship game against Puerto Rico. The blond-dyed baseball machine from the Caribbean is in the midst of the most dominant WBC performance of any team since the event began in 2006.Using the same Simple Rating System (SRS) framework I employed in my earlier story to adjust for the overall quality of each country’s WBC program,1With a few tweaks: I amended the home-field advantage to better reflect past WBC results (more on that later). I also added a stabilizing factor that regresses each team’s rating to a mean of -4.5 runs per game (with a weight of about 12 games), to avoid overrating teams with few total games played. we can measure a team’s performance in each individual tournament relative to how it played against their opponents. And this season’s Puerto Rican national team is crushing it: 12017Puerto Rico704.300.14 42009Japan723.790.53 52013Dominican Republic803.430.71 32006Japan533.90-0.29 72017United States521.28-0.18 62009South Korea632.771.04 92013Japan520.82-1.34 102006Cuba530.791.69 82017Japan611.12-1.19 The best World Baseball Classic performances, by SRS In the grand scheme of things, across every WBC game ever played, the U.S. still has a slightly below-average SRS rating, far below Puerto Rico’s mark. According to SRS, Puerto Rico is the third-best team in WBC history, trailing only Japan and the Dominican Republic.But if America does have one edge on Wednesday, it’s that the game is being played on U.S. soil, at Dodger Stadium. In the WBC, host teams outscore opponents by about one more run per game than they do when playing elsewhere, which translates to about 5 to 10 extra percentage points of win probability (or nearly twice what home-field is worth in Major League Baseball). That probably isn’t enough to close the gap between the U.S. and Puerto Rico completely, but in concert with Marcus Stroman taking the hill for the Stars and Stripes, Team USA might have a fighting chance to win this thing after all.CORRECTION (March 22, 3:00 p.m.): A table in an earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the records of the U.S. and Puerto Rico teams. Puerto Rico is 7-0 in the 2017 World Baseball Classic, not 7-1. The U.S. is 5-2, not 5-3. Share on Facebook read more
