Lottery Scam Bill passed – Bunting promises early prosecutions
Wednesday, March 27, 2013

THE Anti-Lottery Scam Bill finally completed the parliamentary circuit in the House of Representatives yesterday and immediately Peter Bunting promised early prosecution of scammers who have been destroying people’s lives and damaging Jamaica’s name internationally.
“That certainly is our intention,” Bunting, the national security minister, told Opposition spokesman on national security Delroy Chuck, who had suggested that lottery scammers seemed to be sneering at the Bill and the possibility of being extradited to the United States for trial and that it would need prosecutions to win public support.
(L-R) BUNTING… once we receive an extradition request, once it is compliant and lawful, it will be dealt with. CHUCK… Opposition is hoping that the Act will be implemented as soon as possible
1/1
“That’s why we are moving this Bill through all its stages urgently, so that it will come into law and the police will have this tool,” the minister said as he closed the debate on the bill, officially titled the law reform (Fraudulent Transactions) Act 2013, after the House approved 14 amendments made by the Senate last week Thursday.
The Bill will now go to the governor general to be signed, after which it will be gazetted, then become law.
Yesterday, Chuck said that the Opposition is hoping that the Act will be implemented as soon as possible, as the matter is of national importance and has been giving Jamaica a very bad image abroad.
“Until we have prosecutions of these scammers, we are going to have this destructive operation continuing,” Chuck said.
“Once we receive an extradition request, once it is compliant and lawful, it will be dealt with as provided for in our extradition act and the various treaties that cover that,” Bunting said.
Chuck also thanked the Senate for “fine-tuning” the Bill and coming up with 14 amendments, most of which sought to protect legitimate operators and operations who might have become victims of the wider provisions of the original act.
Bunting said that while some of the amendments might seem like semantics, in talking about illicit gain there was the need to avoid any question of legitimate businesses which end up benefiting from some “small fraction” of the profits from the lottery scam being treated as scammers.
He said that he had met with the Justice Minister Senator Mark Golding, Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate Senator Arthur Williams, and the drafters of the Bill from the Office of the Chief Parliamentary Counsel to discuss the issues raised by the Senate.
“We went over this for a long time, and I was satisfied, not being a lawyer myself, that the changes adequately addressed the concerns,” he said. He also noted that both sides of the Senate had agreed on the amendments.
Concerns about the legality of aspects of the Act, the key legislative tool in the fight against the lottery scam, led the Senate to delay passage of the Bill by a week, and eventually make 14 amendments, including provisions regarding being contaminated by the proceeds of the scam.

WTF AFRICA- MAN DRINKS POISON IN COURT

images

There was chaos in a courtroom at Harare Rotten Row Magistrates’ court on Tuesday when a man, convicted of two counts of robbery, drank a mysterious liquid which he claimed was poisonous, and collapsed on the floor.

It could not be established where Tendai Learnmore Muza (24) got the liquid that was in a 500ml bottle from. He has been in custody since his arrest and attended court coming from Harare Central Remand Prison.

Zimbabwe Prison Services spokesperson Superintendent Elizabeth Banda said they were still investigating how Muza got into the courtroom with the container.

“Probably tomorrow (today) I will be able to furnish you with more details. So, call me around 9am tomorrow,” she said.
Muza was rushed to hospital where his condition was said to be stable.

Muza, who had been convicted by regional magistrate Ms Fadzai Mthombeni raised his hand before sentencing and told the court that he had something to say.

“Your worship I have a confession. It was very unfortunate that this court has found me guilty of an offence I did not commit. The person who committed this offence is walking in the streets freely so I have decided that my matter be finalised in heaven. Your worship, I want you to tell my wife and children how their father died since I am going to kill myself now,” he said before he downed the unknown contents.

Muza suddenly took a 500ml container from his waist area containing some liquid.

Ms Mthombeni asked him what it was and he told the court that it was ‘toilet dip’, which he had smuggled into the courtroom.

A prison guard who was in court rushed to where Muza was standing and tried to take away the container from him but it was too late as Muza quickly drank the liquid.

He fell to the ground after some minutes prompting Ms Mthombeni to adjourn the court.
Muza was whisked away by prison guards.
Muza, who has a pending case in another court was yesterday remanded to another date in absentia.

A prison guard who declined to be identified said that Muza was rushed to Harare Remand Prison hospital where his condition was reportedly stable.

He is expected to appear in court today for sentencing on the armed robbery case.

The court heard that on April 16 last year, Muza and his colleague Tapera Maturiro who has since been convicted and is serving an 18-year-jail term approached a taxi driver, Nesbert Chizhanje at Tipperary’s Night Club in the city and hired him to take them to Chitungwiza.

However, as they approached Sunningdale, Harare, Maturiro produced a knife, grabbed Chizhanje by the neck and ordered him to stop.

The duo then tied Chizhanje’s hands and legs with sellotape, stole his $60 and phone, before throwing him out of the vehicle which they later sold to one Nyasha Mangezi for $1 800.

A month later, the duo pounced on Richard Kanyongo whom they called on his business numbers displayed on his car and invited him to Belvedere in Harare.

When he got to Belvedere, Muza got into Kanyongo’s car, produced a knife and threatened him with death if he did not comply.

They secured Kanyongo’s hands and legs with sellotape and seat belt before robbing him of $120 cash, a cellphone and the car which they stripped of various parts for sale before setting the shell ablaze in Epworth.

ARE CHRISTIANS REQUIRED TO OBSERVE THE FEASTS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT?

passover-Optimized

Are Christians required to observe the feasts of the Old Testament?

FAQ: I know people who are teaching that we Christians today are required to observe the feasts and ceremonial holidays that the Jews in the Old Testament observed? Is that true?

[To further help you study this subject, we suggest you open up or print off this chart.]

Although that idea is not prevalent in what is known as mainstream, evangelical Christianity, it is prominent in “Messianic Judaism” and in certain other groups today. As usual, when it comes to the only source of truth regarding spiritual matters, we must ask “What does the Bible say?” But that vital question needs a qualifier: To whom?

The question must be: “What does the Bible say to christians?” Why? Because what God now says to Christians is in many respects different than what He said to the Jews of the Old Testament. The sad news is that too few Christians understand the differences, and, as a result, many are unnecessarily trying to live according to directives given by God to other people at other times. This leads at best to confusion about the things of God, and at worst to spiritual and emotional bondage.

And, as is so often the case in examining a biblical issue, we must consider the critically important subject of the administrations in Scripture. Unless we understand what parts of God’s Word are written to Jews, what parts are written to Gentiles, and what parts are written to Christians, we can neither understand nor apply its truths in our daily lives.

We are currently living in what the Bible calls the “Administration of the Sacred Secret” (Eph. 3:9), which began on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1 and following) and will conclude with the Rapture of the Church (all living and dead Christians meeting the Lord in the air—1 Thess. 4:13-18). The primary curriculum for Christians (i.e., people born again of God’s incorruptible seed by adherence to Romans 10:9) is found in the Church Epistles: Romans, 1 & 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and 1 & 2 Thessalonians. It is there that we must look to find God’s specific directions for us today.

When it comes to which parts of the Bible are written to whom, we must be sensitive to exactly “whom” is being addressed. Is it a group, such as Israel, Judah, the people of Jerusalem, the Babylonians, or the Christians, or is it to an individual, such as David, Solomon, Mary, or Paul? If we are ever going to separate what is written to us from what is written to others, we must first of all be aware that not everything in the Bible is written to us or even applies to us, and secondly, pay attention to what is written to whom. When it comes to the Church Epistles, they are written to Christians, those born again of the spirit of God, something that was not available to Old Testament believers because they lived prior to the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ, and his subsequent exaltation as Lord.

Most folks readily see that the Old Testament is primarily regarding Israel, but what about the Four Gospels? Despite what most Christians today have been taught, Jesus was speaking to Jews, not Christians, because there were no Christians until the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2. That is the first time anyone was “born again” of God’s spirit, His incorruptible seed. And there will be no Christians after the Rapture. As such, today’s “Administration of the Sacred Secret” (Pentecost until the Rapture) is the most unique time in history.

As the promised Messiah whose coming was heralded throughout the Old Testament, Jesus came to Israel, and, as he said, his message was specifically to them. Certain things, e.g., Luke 6:38 (“Give, and it shall be given to you…”;), are pertinent to us today, but most of what he said is directly regarding Israel, and based upon what is written in the Old Testament, which is all they could understand. Much of that which was specifically addressed to Israel was superseded or changed in the Church Epistles, which are written specifically to Christians. “Uh-oh,” some people say, “you’re placing the words of Paul above the words of Jesus.” No, the Church Epistles are also the words of Jesus, as per Galatians 1:11. The question is: to whom was Jesus speaking?

The Greek word oikonomia appears nine times in the New Testament, and is best translated “administration,” that is, a way in which God relates to mankind, the “rules and regulations,” if you will, for the people on earth during a particular time. Let the record show that God is very clear in His communication to people about what He expects from them in each administration. This is much like presidential administrations in the USA. When a new president is inaugurated, some things remain the same and other things change, depending upon his decisions as to how things will be during his presidency. Then people choose whether or not to adhere to the rules.

It was during the administration of the Law (Exod. 20:1—Acts 1:26) that Jesus first came to the earth to Israel. He was born, lived, died, was resurrected, instructed his disciples about the coming gift of holy spirit, and ascended to heaven. As a Jew, he kept the ceremonial requirements of the Mosaic Law by observing the Sabbath, keeping the feasts of Israel, etc. But look at the instructions the Lord Jesus gave to Paul for the Christian Church:

Colossians 2:16 and 17
(16) Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a
New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.
(17) These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.

In Colossians, the “you” is those born again of God’s holy spirit, for whom no such holiday observance is ever prescribed. In fact, the above verses are saying that there is no such thing that is relevant to the Church, the Body of Christ, Christians. Do the Church Epistles say that Christians should get together with others and celebrate, sing, praise, worship, pray, minister, hear the Word—and eat? Absolutely. But there is no prescribed day—or way.

Consider this: if Christians are to keep the feasts of Judaism, should they not keep the whole Law? In Galatians 5:3, Paul says just that, substituting “circumcision” as the part of the Law in question. Take a good look at verses 1-15 in order to get the whole context, and to see what Paul (writing by revelation from Jesus Christ) thinks about Christians being put under any part of the old Mosaic Law. If we are to keep the feasts, what about animal sacrifices to worship God? No, Christians are not required to keep these laws.

The epistle to the Hebrews is one of the earlier epistles, and was written primarily to ex-Jewish Christians, many of whom were still clinging to their old ways. In Hebrews 7-10, God works hard to show them that the ceremonial aspects of the Mosaic Law were no longer applicable. For example: (7:18 and 19) “The former regulation is set aside because it was weak and useless, (for the law made nothing perfect), and a better hope is introduced, by which we draw near to God;” (9:9 and 10) “[The Tabernacle was] an illustration for the present time, indicating that the gifts and sacrifices being offered were not able to clear the conscience of the worshiper. They are only a matter of food and drink and various ceremonial washings—external regulations applying until the time of the new order;” (10:1) “The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—and not the realities themselves…” Amen.

Some Christians who do not understand the administrations in Scripture [For a chart on the Administrations click here.], and who thus believe we should observe the Jewish feasts, etc., cite Matthew 5:17-19, where Jesus said that he had not come to abolish the Law but to fulfill it. First, to whom was he speaking? Jews. The Mosaic Law never did have anything to do with Christians. A key phrase in what Jesus said in Matthew 5:18 is that nothing would disappear from the Law “until everything is accomplished.” Jesus did accomplish everything he needed to relative to the Levitical Law, and that is why it is no longer in effect. Today, we have no Temple, no Levites, no Aaronite priests, no animal sacrifices, etc. For both Jews and Gentiles, adhering to Romans 10:9 is the only way to salvation. When either does so, he is then “neither Jew nor Gentile” (Gal. 3:28), but a Christian, a member of the Body of Christ.

Remember Hebrews 10:1 (above)? The Law was not the reality to which God looked forward. Then remember what Colossians 2:17 said about the festivals and holidays? “These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.” In that light, consider the following verses:

1 Corinthians 5:6-8 (NKJV)
(6) Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
(7) Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.
(8) Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

What’s the point? That because of the finished work of Jesus Christ, and his giving the gift of holy spirit on the Day of Pentecost, believers today (“Christians”) are unique in the annals of spiritual history. If you have made Jesus Christ your Lord and believed that God raised him from the dead, you are born again of God’s spirit and forever righteous in His sight. in Christ, you have been cleansed of sin from the inside out. The Redeemer to whom the Old Testament feasts and rituals pointed now lives in your heart. There is no ritual or work you need to do in order to stand approved before your heavenly Father. Knowing your standing as a son of God should make every day worth celebrating!

DIS IS REALLY SERIOUS LMAO

Inmate Sentenced for Filing False Tax Returns While in Alabama Federal Prison
David Marrero, a federal inmate in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons, was sentenced today to 46 months in prison for tax fraud committed while in prison, the Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced. Twenty-four months of the sentence imposed will run concurrent with Marrero’s current 10 year federal sentence, and 22 months will run consecutive to his 10 year sentence. Marrero had pleaded guilty in December 2012 to filing false claims.

According to court documents, while serving his federal sentence in Montgomery County, Ala., Marrero began sending various false documents to the IRS and to the federal judge who had presided over his case in Florida. Among the documents Marrero sent were fictitious money orders and false tax returns making claims for refunds, including one tax return claiming a $2,719,438 refund—the amount of restitution Marrero had been ordered to pay following his conviction in Florida. The fraudulent tax returns were based upon false IRS Forms 1099-OID on which Marrero had fraudulently claimed that various companies withheld a substantial amount of federal taxes from him when, in fact, the companies had withheld nothing. Marrero also used financial documents he had obtained from other people, without their knowledge or consent, as supporting documentation for his fraudulent claims.

Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Tax Division Kathryn Keneally commended the efforts of special agents of IRS – Criminal Investigation, who investigated the case, and Tax Division Trial Attorneys Jason Poole and Justin Gelfand, who prosecuted the case.

Form 1099-OID schemes are one of the IRS’s “Dirty Dozen” tax scams. Additional information about the Tax Division and its enforcement efforts may be found at www.justice.gov/tax.
