US court gives Integrity Commission green light to subpoena Google

first_img Tweet Share 54 Views   no discussions Attorney General Anand Ramlogan (Photo: Trinidad Express)PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (Trinidad Express) — The Integrity Commission has won its legal battle to have Google Inc provide information on three e-mail accounts, believed to be connected to Attorney General Anand Ramlogan and Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, as part of its investigation into Emailgate.A judgment handed down by the United States District Court has stated the Integrity Commission’s subpoena to Google Inc in connection with its Emailgate probe has met “both statutory requirements and discretionary factors”.The judgment was handed down by US District Judge William Orrick of the Northern District of California Court on August 14.“On August 11, 2014 the Integrity Commission of Trinidad and Tobago requested the court’s assistance under 28 U.S.C. 1782 in issuing a subpoena to Google Inc,” the Order granting the subpoena application stated.“The subpoena seeks information for the e-mail accounts “[email protected]”, “[email protected]” and “[email protected]” which the Commission represents is relevant to a criminal investigation into possible governmental corruption.“Because the application meets both the statutory requirements and discretionary factors I must consider in deciding whether to grant it, the application is granted,” the order stated.According to a footnote in the court document, Google says the e-mail address [email protected] does not exist but the Integrity Commission said in its motion it believed the address was incorrectly copied so it is asking any information pertaining to [email protected] gmail.com to be preserved.In his ruling, Orrick says he granted the subpoena for several reasons:1) Google itself is not the subject of the case and since it’s out of the jurisdiction of Trinidad and Tobago law enforcement, any evidence will be unobtainable without Google’s help.2) There is no evidence the request is an attempt to circumvent foreign proof-gathering restrictions or any country’s policies.3) It’s not “intrusive or burdensome.” It’s only a request for information concerning three accounts and an affidavit to authenticate…and according to the document, one of the owners, Anand Ramlogan, has given consent to search his TSTT account which is operated by Google.Ramlogan has denied having a gmail account and Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar has never confirmed if the gmail account belongs to her.Google now has the right to modify or quash the subpoena within 14 days.If it does that, the Integrity Commission will then have another 14 days to appeal.

Pybus set to become West Indies’ head coach

first_imgRICHARD Pybus, West Indies’ high performance director, has agreed to take up the role of head coach full-time, replacing the interim coach Nic Pothas. Pybus’ contract, ESPNcricinfo understands, will effectively run until the 2019 Test series against India, which follows the ODI World Cup in England.The position of West Indies head coach had been vacant since Stuart Law resigned from the position less than two years into his job.He left West Indies to take up a four-year contract with the English county team Middlesex. Originally the fielding coach, Pothas was made interim head coach for the recent tour of Bangladesh that followed Law’s exit. West Indies lost Test and ODI series 2-0 and 2-1 respectively, and won the T20Is 2-1.Pybus took over as high performance director in February, his role requiring him to work alongside selectors and coaches across all levels of the game in the Caribbean. He had previously served as West Indies’ director of cricket from 2013 to the end of 2016, when he chose not to renew his contract.Pybus’ return to West Indies cricket wasn’t welcomed by everyone. The former West Indies opener Desmond Haynes questioned the process of appointing him – “It would be great to ask the [CWI] president [Dave Cameron] about this appointment and when was this position advertised,” he wrote in a Facebook post.Darren Sammy, who captained West Indies when Pybus was director of cricket, expressed disbelief at his return. “Lies lies lies… Must be fake news,” Sammy tweeted, and a day later, in response to a reply: “Well I’m still hoping that nightmare is not true #fakenews he’s not coming back at CWI.”Pybus’ stint as director of cricket was controversial – he was responsible for the policy that made participation in West Indies’ domestic competitions mandatory for international selection across formats.This was in part responsible for a number of senior players choosing to focus solely on playing T20 leagues around the world.Before his stints with West Indies, Pybus coached Pakistan – taking them to the final of the 1999 World Cup – and Bangladesh apart from a number of domestic teams around the world, working extensively in South Africa at the franchise level.His last stint with an international team, Bangladesh, ended up lasting only five months after a disagreement over the terms of his contract in 2012. Last year, he was also shortlisted and interviewed for the role of India coach.(ESPN Cricinfo).last_img read more
