Inner Wheel Club donates hampers, cash to Help & Shelter INNER WHEEL CLUB of Georgetown, Guyana donated hampers and cash to the Help and Shelter- Crisis Centre last Thursday at Help and Shelter’s Home Stretch Avenue board room. At the presentation ceremony were the president of

the Inner Wheel Club, Aretha Campbell and other members of the organisation, while director/ counsellor of Help and Shelter, Ms. Isha Husain-Singh, collected the donations. Donations comprised of cash, approximately $50,000, a hamper with personal care items

for women and a box of sanitary pads. The Inner Wheel Club has been in operation for almost 20 years with the aim of “reaching out to the community.” International Inner Wheel Day was celebrated on January 10 and the donation was part of the commemoration to mark the

Religious harmony should serve as an example at the political level -President Ramotar

AS Guyana joined the rest of the world in observance of the United Nations (UN) designated World Interfaith Harmony Week, President Donald Ramotar yesterday called for a redoubling of efforts to foster greater understanding and appreciation among the different religious faiths in Guyana. World Interfaith Harmony Week was yesterday officially launched at the Guyana International Conference Centre, Liliendaal. The ceremony opened with prayers and messages from the Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Baha’i, Rastafarian, Indigenous and Seventh Day Adventist bodies, as well as the United Apostolic Mystical Council. The President, who delivered the keynote address, boasted of the beauty and uniqueness of Guyana’s multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society, and the commendable level of tolerance that exists among the various faiths. Four years ago, World Interfaith Harmony Week became an annual event that is observed during the first week of February, as the UN General Assembly’s way of urging countries to encourage activities aimed at fostering greater dialogue among people of different faiths. The need to intensify such dialogue was underscored by the desire to promote a culture of genuine peace in a world driven, in many places, by religious and sectarian divides, since tolerance and mutual understanding are general aspirations shared by faiths. The President said that his government fully supports the goal of increased dialogue amongst faiths, and subscribed to the view that dialogue is the best means of resolving conflicts especially those exacerbated by ethnic and religious conflicts. “We have all witness the awful tragedies that have resulted by religious and cultural conflicts in many parts of our world. These conflicts have spawned untold loss of lives, and unremitting suffering,” the Head of State said. Unlike many other countries in the world, the various religious bodies in Guyana co-exist in harmony. The President explained that while interfaith dialogue had to be initiated in other countries in an attempt to ease religious

President Donald Ramotar flanked by UN Resident Coordinator, Khadija Musa and Mayor, Hamilton Green with members of the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO) conflicts, Guyana took this step of its own accord. “For this reason, interfaith relations in Guyana take place characterised by the absence of hostility, animosity and bitterness. The fact that the lead-

Countering the Financing of Terrorism (Amendment) Bill which is currently before the National Assembly and whose non-passage is seen as one of the challenges that the country currently faces.

“Within our families there is need for support, within our relationships there is need for love and …we must demonstrate empathy, tolerance and above all, a deep compassion for each other’s lot in life…we should talk to each other with respect, treat each other with kindness, and show understanding to those with whom we have differences…one thing is very clear, the violence and crimes must end, it is a moral imperative to work to stop this, it has been a source of much distress and suffering for too many families in Guyana.” - President Ramotar ers of our various faiths have come together to foster greater understanding is something to commend and celebrate and encourage. It enriches all of our lives and helps to foster greater unity among all our peoples. It is also the best example that we as a nation can hope for when addressing challenges that we face,” President Ramotar posited. Reference was made to the Anti-Money Laundering and

The President said that terrorism, drug trafficking and money laundering have and continues to inflict untold suffering on people, and reminded that failure to pass this important law will attract sanctions that will hurt the economy and the people. “The fact that our religious leaders can come together to advance the goal of interfaith dialogue should serve as a good example to our parliament to

put our people’s interest before narrow political agendas. The religious harmony that we have fostered must be held up as a beacon for building greater mutual understanding, cooperation and peace across our land,” President Ramotar stated. He also called on the different faiths to play a greater role in eliminating social afflictions such as domestic violence, to which far too many lives have succumbed. “Within our families there is need for support, within our relationships there is need for love and …we must demonstrate empathy, tolerance and above all, a deep compassion for each other’s lot in life…we should talk to each other with respect, treat each other with kindness, and show understanding to those with whom we have differences…one thing is very clear, the violence and crimes must end, it is a moral imperative to work to stop this, it has been a source of much distress and suffering for too many families in Guyana,” the President urged. He also called on faithbased organisations and the public at large for more support for

projects that can help to bring down the cost of living and expand the country’s revenue base; projects such as the Amaila Falls Hydropower plant. This project has the possibility of stimulating huge economic activities due to cheapening of energy, while saving an estimated $9B in subsidies per year. Meanwhile, UN Resident Coordinator, Khadija Musa read to the audience, the message of the UN Secretary General, BanKi-Moon. In his message, the Secretary General pointed out that each religion harbours a strident minority, prepared to assert fundamentalist doctrines through bigotry and extreme violence. This, he said, is an affront to the heritage and teachings of all major religions. Further, these acts contravene the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which affirms the right of all to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. “We live in times of turmoil and transformation – economic, environmental, demographic and political.  These transitions bring both hope and uncertainty.  Our job is to ensure that hope

wins, and our task will be made easier if the followers of all faiths collaborate in a common cause. Let us never forget that what divides us is minuscule compared with what unites us.  Working together, we can achieve all our goals for peace, prosperity and physical and spiritual well-being,” the UN Secretary General said. A symposium was held subsequently to the launching ceremony engaging mostly young people from different faiths. A harmony walk will be held tomorrow from the Cenotaph to the Promenade Garden, followed by the first ever interfaith concert at the National Cultural Centre in the evening. Members of the Inter-Religious Organisation (IRO) will also be going out to various schools as well as the University of Guyana to hold discourses on religious harmony. (GINA)

West presses Ukraine, offers treatment to injured activist

(Reuters) - Western governments pressed Ukraine’s president to compromise with protesters camped on the streets, prompting a war of words with Russia on Saturday and offering treatment to an opposition activist who says he was tortured. At an annual security conference in Munich, founded at the height of the Cold War, Ukrainian opposition leaders met U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and European officials and the Russian foreign minister accused Western powers of fomenting protests against President Viktor Yanukovich. Sergei Lavrov said the We s t h a d “ i m p o s e d ” o n Ukraine to cooperate with its NATO defense alliance, while Kerry said the Ukrainian protesters believed “their futures do not have to lie with one country alone - and certainly not coerced”. Opposition leaders said they felt “huge support” after European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said closer ties to the EU were still on offer to Kiev and Kerry assured them that Washington

Political paralysis looms as Thais go to polls

Anti-government protesters wait outside the hospital where opposition activist Dmytro Bulatov is being treated in Kiev January 31, 2014 and the EU “stand with the people of Ukraine” in “the fight for a democratic, European future”. The resignation in the past week of the prime minister and withdrawal of new laws curbing rights to protest have failed to appease demonstrators occupying public buildings and streets in Kiev and other cities who want Yanukovich out after he spurned a trade deal with the EU in November and sought

Russian aid. Reflecting fears that one of Europe’s biggest countries may be lurching toward a civil war that could set Moscow against the West and destabilize the continent, Germany’s foreign minister warned: “When the fuse on the powder-keg is already lit, playing for time is highly dangerous.” Frank-Walter Steinmeier urged Yanukovich to make good on a pledge to seek consensus. “Only then is there a realistic chance of a political solution to the confrontation,” he added. INJURED ACTIVIST Fuelling anger against the authorities in the past two days

have been images of a prominent activist who says he was beaten and “crucified” after his abduction a week earlier. The case of Dmytro Bulatov has drawn demands from the West for an investigation and anger at reports the victim faced arrest in hospital on the serious of charge of “mass disorder”. Steinmeier said he had secured the agreement of Ukraine’s foreign minister, Leonid Kozhara, to let Bulatov leave the country for medical care and the U.S. ambassador visited the Kiev clinic where Bulatov was being treated. “It was a gesture of solidarity and support,” an embassy official said.

(Reuters) - Thai voters go to the polls under heavy security on Sunday in an election that could push the divided country deeper into political turmoil and leave the winner paralyzed for months by street protests, legal challenges and legislative limbo. The risk of bloodshed at the ballot remains high, a day after seven people were wounded by gunshots and explosions during a standoff between supporters and opponents of embattled Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in a north Bangkok stronghold of her Puea Thai Party. The usual campaign billboards, glossy posters and pre-election buzz have been notably absent this time, as will be millions of voters fearful of poll violence or bent on rejecting a ballot bound to re-elect the political juggernaut controlled by Yingluck’s billionaire brother, Thaksin Shinawatra. Thaksin, 64, is loved and loathed in Thailand, but his parties have won every poll since 2001. His opponents say he is a corrupt crony capitalist who rules by proxy from self-exile in Dubai. Victory celebrations would be likely muted for Yingluck. With

Thai Buddhist monk and anti-government protest leader Luang Pu Buddha Isara sits among other anti-government protesters blocking a district office where election materials are stored, after a gunfight parliamentary seats unable to be filled and the prospect of violence disrupting voting, she could find herself on shaky ground, exposed to legal attacks and unable to pass bills and budgets crucial to reviving a stuttering economy. Yingluck last week refused to postpone the election, even though a fifth of those registered for advanced voting were unable to cast ballots after protesters blocked polling stations in 49 of 50 Bangkok districts as part of a “shutdown” of key intersections in the city. In 28 southern constituencies, no votes will be cast because no candidates could sign up. Some 130,000 security forces will be deployed across the country, 12,000 in Bangkok, National Security Council chief Paradorn Pattantabutr told Reuters. “We’re confident there won’t be too much chaos,” he said. Polling stations open at 8 a.m. (0100 GMT) on Sunday and the Election Commission says results will not be available on the day. Its commissioners are worried about unrest and are braced for a deluge of complaints and challenges to the results. “There’s been a lot of obstruction, so much, every single step of the way,” commission secretary-general Puchong Nutrawong told Reuters. “We don’t want this election to be a bloody election. We can get every single agency involved to make this election happen, but if there’s bloodshed, what’s the point?”

Mexico arrests Jalisco New Generation drug lord El Menchito

(BBC News) Mexican security forces say they have arrested one of the leaders of the Jalisco New Generation drug cartel. Ruben Oseguera Gonzalez, known as El Menchito, is believed to be the second-in-command in the criminal organisation led by his father. He was arrested in a major operation that involved dozens of soldiers. The New Generation cartel is involved in large-scale drug trafficking along Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Oseguera Gonzalez was in charge of buying and selling drugs produced in South America” It is said that the New Generation cartel worked together with the Sinaloa cartel, led by the most wanted man in Mexico, Joaquin ‘Shorty’ Guzman.

Oseguera Gonzalez is believed to be in his early 20s ‘CASH AND GUNS’ Oseguera Gonzalez, who was believed to control the cartel’s finances, was arrested in Zapopan, a city in the Greater Guadalajara area of Jalisco state. Roads were blocked and dozens of soldiers and police-

men were deployed in the high profile operation, which was backed up a helicopter. The police say gang members reacted by setting buses alight in Zapopan and shooting at passing vehicles. Mexican officials say they seized “a large amount of cash,” weapons and ammunition in the raid. “There are indications that Ruben Oseguera Gonzalez was in charge of buying and selling drugs produced in South America,” said Mexico’s National Public Security System Secretary Monte Alejandro Rubido. He was also in charge of “ordering the execution of those who refused to collaborate with the organisation and to make sure rival organisations were kept out of Colima and Jalisco states,” said Mr Rubido.

RIPPED TO SHREDS - JTA knocks Teaching Council bill, says it could trigger legal challenge

By Jerome Reynolds (Sunday Gleaner) The Government could open itself to a legal challenge if the bill to establish the Jamaica Teaching Council (JTC) remains in its current form. That is the position of the Jamaica Teachers’ Association (JTA), which says aspects of the legislation violate fundamental rights such as natural justice. In its official response to the draft bill which was delivered to the Ministry of Education yesterday, the JTA said it was against the suspension or the revocation of the teaching li-

cence of a teacher without due process. Where a teacher is accused of committing an offence, the council reportedly has the power to suspend the registration, and to suspend or revoke a licence to teach. According to the JTA, the body can take that decision without an enquiry and it is at the JTC’s discretion to determine whether the representative or attorney may be allowed to appear at a hearing on behalf of the accused. The teachers’ union says this goes against the Education Regulations (1980), the Labour

Code, and natural justice. ENCROACHING ON RIGHTS “By this bill, separate standards of justice are established for teachers with encroachment on basic human rights. The enactment of this law will reduce the power of school boards and undermine their rights to discipline their employees - the teachers,” the JTA said. A teacher on suspension and a school which allows such an individual to teach are liable to be fined $300,000 under the proposed law.


GIRL, 12, PREGNANT Raped by sister’s ex-boyfriend

By Carolyn Kissoon (Sunday Express) While most girls her age are anxious about writing the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examination later this year, a 12-year-old primary school pupil is preparing to become a mother. The five-month pregnant child conceived after allegedly being raped by the father of her sister’s child, who threatened to end her life if she reported the incident.

Princes Town police have confirmed that the girl, accompanied by her mother, reported the incident on January 9. Relatives have, however, complained that they are not satisfied with the police response. A r e l a t i v e s a i d : “ T h e 12-year-old girl has an older sister with a baby. The older sister and the child’s father are separated, but he asked if they can spend a weekend with him at his house. The older sister asked the 12-year-old to go with her to the man’s house in Princes Town. That was where

Dozens of trafficking victims rescued

(Sunday Gleaner) The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) is reporting that its Anti-Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Unit has, to date, rescued more than 41 victims. Deputy Commissioner of Police Carl Williams said 27 of the victims were rescued within the last two years. He said seven cases are before the courts, while there are 28 cases being probed, four of which involve transnational investigations. Williams, who was addressing the opening ceremony for a four-day TIP training seminar on Thursday at the Sunset Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios, credited the achievements to the collaborative efforts of the JCF’s various units, and the “vibrant partnership” with local and international agencies. He noted that the gains made have resulted in Jamaica being upgraded from the United States State Department’s Tier Watchlist to Tier 2.

Williams said the TIP Unit, which was set up in 2005, is taking a zero-tolerance approach to human trafficking, which he describes as modern-day slavery. He said human trafficking is valued at some US$32 billion per annum, and is regarded by the United Nations as one of the fastest-growing transnational organised criminal activities in the world. The seminar, which ends tomorrow, is the second such forum organised by the National Task Force Against Trafficking in Persons.

she was assaulted.” A police report stated the child’s older sister and the baby were asleep when the 25-yearold man assaulted her. “He told her he would kill her if she told anyone. And he said if the girl’s mother found out she would put her out of the house. She was traumatised and afraid to tell anyone,” the relative said. Police said the standard five pupil, who was unaware that she was pregnant, fell ill earlier this month. “Her belly started to show and she was feeling sick. Her mother took her to the doctor, who confirmed she was pregnant.  Her mother questioned her in front of the doctor and that was when she said she was raped by the man,” the relative said. The girl was examined by a district medical officer, who confirmed she was assaulted. “Since then the man was not arrested or even questioned. The police said they are working on the case, but nothing is happening. This man cannot get away with this. She is a child and we need to protect her. She was supposed to write SEA this year, around the same time she will have the baby,” her relative said. Investigators were reluctant to reveal information on the incident yesterday.  “The investigations are at a sensitive stage at this time,” the Express was told by police.

SCORE ONE for the APNU/AFC coalition in succeeding, so far, to ensure the coming proposed international blacklisting of Guyana, among other states, by the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF). Such a pyrrhic victory would be achieved as a consequence of the parliamentary opposition’s refusal to date to support the government in passage of the required legislation to combat money laundering and terrorism. Hopes of securing the opposition parties support, starting at the level of the parliamentary Select Committee, following an earlier signal from APNU’s leader, David Granger, were further dashed last week, as disclosed by Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall. This has resulted in the latest indication that the CFATF has been disappointed enough to go ahead with expected notification of the distressing status quo to the Paris-based Financial Task Force. That development could result in the shaming of Guyana among states that have failed to have required law in place to effectively block money laundering and anti-terrorist activities. In our editorial last Sunday, titled “Gimmicks vs Realities”, we had referenced a reported assurance by Opposition Leader Granger of forthcoming parliamentary support for the AML/CFT Bill before July 14. Our expressed hope was that this could indeed be a reality. However, since then there has been another opposition somersault, an act being perfected with recurring new political antics by the APNU/ AFC coalition. Meanwhile, to the grief of the Guyana Government, major stakeholders as well as generally well informed  Guyanese across the political divide,  the CFATF is in the process of moving  to advise the  FATF  whose International Review Cooperation Group (ICRG) is due to meet later this month. We are, therefore, now being left to hope that even at this late stage, the APNU/AFC opposition axis could find it possible---in Guyana’s best interest--- to support passage of the much too long delayed anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist legislation to avoid the looming blacklisting of this nation.  Failure to cooperate with the government for passage of the legislation could well prove a very costly political crime for the Guyanese people to forget when the moment of national decision-making arrives. Enough said for now. The more politically matured and nationally committed elements within both APNU and AFC must rise above the political arrogance and pettiness that stand in the way of overdue parliamentary approval of the anti-money laundering, anti-terrorism bill. We started out by amusingly calling, tongue-in-cheek, to “score one” for the APNU/AFC alliance’s coming success to have Guyana “blacklisted” internationally, as a state that enables crimes of money laundering and terrorism by lack of having in place required relevant legislation. Such “success” for the opposition would, of course, prove a pyrrhic victory with tremendous harm to Guyana’s future.  Let those who have ears to hear listen carefully.


HE reporters present at the recent presentation of ‘my team and I’, to the Natural Resources Sector Committee, seem to have missed the main messages that we sought to convey. Electricity losses (technical and non-technical), of countries, are published and compared. Our losses are a big blot on our nation’s escutcheon, something that we should all work to change – and we can change it, once we face up to it, and address it squarely. It is true, as many media reported, that roughly about half of our losses could be attributed to some 3,000 or so, big customers, many being various businesses of varying sizes and, generally, sole proprietorship, but it naturally follows, and it is also true, that the other half could be attributed to the 150,000, or so, small customers! Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Inc. brokers no excuse from anyone, and pursues all erring customers. Our total loss figures are not the highest in the world, but certainly they are at the ‘high end’. The reports are that Latin American countries average 16%, North America, about 6%, and so too, Europe and Japan.  At the other end, India, Bangladesh and a number of African countries are at 50%, and more. Closer to home, Jamaica has reported losses ranging between 14% and 23% over the last years, whilst Barbados is at about 7 to 8%. As I said in the recent presentation, our electricity losses, both technical and non-technical, which fell from about 45% to 31% over the last 10 years, have been a source of embarrassment to me in my interaction with other CARICOM Ministers Responsible for Electricity. The technical losses reflect our nation’s historical lack of money from the 1970s onward, and at the same time, the desire to meet our people’s call for electricity, in the adding of connections and, more recently, meeting an increasing demand as existing customers added refridgerators, air-conditioners and other appliances. As I have learnt, all feeders have a thermal limit, a load at which, if exceeded, the feeder could fuse and start a fire. Standard utility practice is to not load feeders beyond 40% of their thermal limits – but with our nation’s limited amount of money, most feeders were loaded way above the standard. Many feeders were at 80 to 100% of their thermal limits. The result has been high technical (heating) losses, voltage levels out of range, and frequent trips to protect the feeder from even small surges. The nearly-completed GPL Transmission Upgrade programme, of about US$45M, introducing, for the first time, sub-stations seven at this time - at points in the network, will about half the load on feeders, with consequential improvements in technical loss-reduction, greater conformity with the standard voltage levels, and reduced trips.  But similar considerations apply to the secondary distribution circuits and feeders, and GPL Inc. is working at this; it could cost twice as much as the Transmission Upgrade - think of US$ 100 million. With regard to non-technical losses, estimates are that these losses account for about 16% of generation.  The meter readings for over 55,000 of our 175,000 customers lead, astonishingly, to a billing of less than $2,300 per month, for electricity. Some are true, but a large number must be understated. A consideration of GPL Inc.’s billing, suggests that four, out of every five customers, pay all that they should, and one out of every five customers, through a number of collusions and conniving, is not being honest with GPL Inc., paying less than he/she should. As we reported, we have been putting in place meters and systems recommended by various consultants, to fight non-technical losses. Alas, as we also reported, many ways have been found to thwart our efforts, and we cannot avoid the conclusion that some number of current and past employees of GPL Inc., as well as other knowledgeable people, together with customers, have been directing their efforts towards manipulation of the system.  Even more advanced, sophisticated and costly metering sys-

tems are being recommended to us: we are being urged to meter anew completely, to install 175,000 sophisticated smart meters, throughout the system, which continually speak to others in the vicinity, and to a control centre. These meters could be disconnected, and re-connected, from the centre. The utility can know, continuously, locations from where power is being taken, that is not being reflected in the local grouping of meters. For such a sophisticated system, think in terms of US$ 75 million. GPL is not waiting for that big re-metering investment. GPL Inc. recently completed one of its first estimates of total losses from each of its 39 main feeders. The results are interesting - See Table entitled, “Loss Profile,” below.  All the reporters present seemed to have been in accord in keeping their distance from this table, apparently thinking it to be a ‘hot potato’. ‘Hot potato’ or not, it is essential that this table be subjected to serious study. The estimates of total losses range from the ‘high end’ of 60% across South Georgetown; about 40% along the East Coast of Demerara - Sophia to Mahaica; and North Wakenaam, about 37%. South Georgetown is a large area, with a large number of customers and a large load. No doubt, technical losses could be a little larger than elsewhere, and there would be sub-areas with losses greater than 60%, as well as lower than 60%. There is an obvious need to split the feeder. Indeed, all feeders in the Demerara area will be split when the Transmission Upgrade Programme is completed. At the ‘lower end’ of total losses, we are heartened by the estimates of 17.2% for Kitty/Campbelville; 18.4% for Ruimveldt Industrial Site and environs; 21% for Water Street; and, most of all, 14.0% for downtown, from Robb Street to Croal and Smyth Streets, between Alexander and Wellington Streets; 11.2% for Garden of Eden to Nandy Park;  11.8% Edinburgh to Windsor Forest, and 9.8% Vreed-en-Hoop to Windsor Forest. These low figures need to be checked, in order to ensure that they are not erroneously low. Although these first results are prone to a number of errors, they nonetheless provide significant information – information which would propel further work in sharpening our estimates of losses in geographical units, and in focusing work to reduce technical losses and eliminate non-technical losses. We have good areas and bad areas, good people and bad people – we have to celebrate the good, and pursue the bad in order to change their ways. To reduce electricity losses, we need significant material investment, and the most robust and perceptive equipment and systems; and we need, no less, that the overwhelming majority of us citizens of Guyana, all employees of GPL Inc., and customers, accept and insist that everyone pays for what he/she uses. Our historical experiences, our struggles to end colonialism to increase earnings for workers, our disappointments with nationalisation, have all left too many of us cynical, non-trusting and believing that to get by, one must get things free, even if it is by dishonest means. Too many of us fear that we cannot work our way honestly to greater prosperity – but we can. As seen from our overall electricity-loss figures, a silent majority of us, four out of five, hold differently. Those who steal electricity by one way or another, should know that it is not free, that others pay more than they should; those who steal electricity are burdening others who are paying. It does not have to be so: it is an unconscionable act.    GPL Inc. has a target of 19.5%, to which total losses should be reduced by 2018. I want us to set our eyes on doing better:  equalling, or doing better than, Barbados – no more than 7%. This is not unrealistic, for even now there are areas which are down to 11%.  We can be, materially, a third-world country, but attaining first-world levels in electricity losses!    SAMUEL A. A. HINDS Prime Minister and Minister Responsible for Electricity and Energy

Obamacare and local gridlock By Keith Burrowes

I WANT to touch upon the recent further troubles that have been plaguing the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. From what I’ve read about the fairly complex set of technical and practical problems that have combined to undermine the roll out of Obamacare as promised by Obama, the key characteristic of the ones that most threaten his credibility have to do with the fact that it appears that some people responsible for the architecture of the Affordable Care Act simply did not cover all possible contingencies in the framing of the Act.  One example is the fact that while the AFA appears to have catered, through what Obama referred to as the Grandfather Clause, for Americans being able to keep their preexisting coverage as is if they wished – a key talking point and selling point for Obama while lobbying for support for the Act – it did not cater for the expiration and renewal of preexisting coverage, an omission which has effectively taken the choice of keeping their old coverage

out of the hands of a significant number of Americans, since the AFA treats renewal as a completely new coverage. Someone, somewhere, in the creation of one of the most controversial and monumental pieces of legislation in American history, effectively dropped the ball, and the President was left to pick it up since it, after all, has his name on it.  Quite frankly, I don’t see this scenario playing out under Hilary Clinton.  While I appreciate the historicity of Obama’s presidency as well as the tremendous work he has done under at times rabid oppositional pressure from the Republicans, in terms of pragmatic governance of the world’s most influential military, sociocultural

Obama, and was subsequently appointed his Secretary of State) would not only have had the political experience but also the ability to gather the right skills to her, people who not only had the ability to craft sound policy, but to help keep her public image together during the most acute of PR crises, as they did for her husband. The key problem with Obama, and one which has resurfaced in recent weeks, is that despite his great and inspirational public oratory, he does not appear to have the ability to inspire professional commitment and consensus, even in his own camp, something he will have to learn to do if he doesn’t want to see his legacy significantly tarnished during the remaining two years of his presidency. And speaking of consensus

As with Obama, the legacy of this current parliament is going to depend on the ability or lack thereof, to form meaningful consensus and economic power, I would have gone for the former First Lady. My reasoning is simple – Hilary Clinton, (Senator Hilary Clinton before she ran in the Democratic primaries, lost to

building, I have to turn now to our own local situation in Parliament. When the recently parliamentary configuration was still fresh and new, I made the observation:  “I don’t want to go into the

merits or demerits of the cases of either the government or the opposition here. What I will say that a dispensation in which the government imagines itself to be an unstoppable force, and the parliamentary majority imagines itself to be an immovable object is one that cannot work.” In that article, I expressed the hope that the gridlock of parliament presented the opportunity for new and innovative ways of getting on with the business of government in

GT&T welcomes liberalisation of the telecommunications sector

THE Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company GT&T said it has always been its intention to invest in the development of the company to ensure modernisation and expansion of the networks and systems which have all been done with a price tag of more than $58M in those capital expansions and programmes. This is according to Chief Executive Officer of the company, Radha Krishna (RK) Sharma while addressing media operatives at an Annual Media Dinner two Saturdays ago at the Grand Costal Hotel, Le Ressouvenir, East Coast Demerara. With the determination of the company to make its mark since its presence in Guyana it has gone through extensive and intense technical development which saw the remarkable increase in its landline service base jumping from 1100 to 154039 subscribers, the deployment of a national fibre optic cable network which is now connecting all major population centres. The phone company has over the years invested in almost all areas conceivable to ensure that customers receive a more reliable service and this has been a practice since its entrance into the market more than a decade

CEO Radha Krishna Sharma ago. In 2010 GT&T invested six billion dollars in the Guyana/Suriname Submarine Cable System which now sees the provision of high speed internet access throughout Guyana while in excess of one billion dollars was expended for the upgrading of the Americas 11 cable in the following year-2011. Still on the issue of expansion and investments, the phone company would have increased its earth station to seven countrywide, moving from one. There was also the launching of the wireless service and the deployment of dozens of cell sites across the country, effectively linking regions and making communication between interior locations and urban areas more possible. Mr. Sharma told the media

that GTT has over the years emphasised the commitment to the economic development of this country and the indisputable track record as a long term proven player in the industry coupled with the intention to continue high levels of investment to the further growth, while deepening and strengthening the telecommunication sector is very much evident. The CEO stated that GT&T recognises that today’s world sees telecommunication as the vehicle which facilitates Information Communication Technology development and economic growth, hence being the good corporate citizen who takes its responsibilities and obligations seriously does support the government’s efforts to liberalise and strengthen the telecommunications sector in Guyana. From the beginning of liberalisation talks of the sector, the GT&T and its parent Company Atlantic Tele Network indicated its willingness to cooperate with the Guyana Government to realise the goal to introduce full competition in the provision of telecoms networks and services, the CEO stated. He went on to explain that the expectations of GT&T were that the new legislation and regulation would reflect a level

playing field, the application of the international best practices and a minimum of discretionary decision making. However, such moves must be seen within the context of the respect for the company’s contractual rights as embodied in the company’s existing agreement with the government. Sharma stated that the company has noted the second draft telecommunications and regulations bill that has been sent to a special select committee and GT&T is anxiously looking forward for the time it will be asked to appear before the committee to contribute to the refinement and improvement of the final act and regulations. The company does not only want to see development but contribute to it by physically doing its part through infrastructure development with respect to its services and this has resulted in the following: an increase in landline Tele-density from 2.21 in 1991 to 20.35 in 2012. For a clear picture the figures are an increase from 16,000 subscribers to 154.207. With respect to mobile Tele-density there has been an increase in Guyana from 5.43 to 72.21 and internet use from 2.61% to 34.31% from the years See page 9

the interest of the people. Two years later, the situation, if anything, has actually gotten worse. I usually seek to go most safely in the middle when it comes to pronouncing upon pitched parliamentary battles – this is because we must concede that for the most part, those who serve in our parliament, no matter what side of the National Assembly they find themselves on, must be given the presumption of acting in the national interest.  What I cannot fathom however is, in the light of the dire national implications associated with failure to pass anti-money laundering legislation, why the insistence on what appears to be unreasonable horse-trading. Why link the Public Procurement Commission unflinchingly to the AML, considering both the real need for further consensus on the

former and the critical urgency of the latter. It’s like saying to a man who needs a bicycle to cross a narrow bridge that you can only sell him the bicycle if he immediately buys the car he needs to cross another bridge a little further down the road. When I first wrote about the issue of parliamentary gridlock, I expressed the hope that we were going to see a change in the way our politicians dealt with each other in our most important democratic mechanism and forum.  Although I’m a bit jaded, particularly over the developments in recent months, I want to close by repeating my hope that a mutually beneficial way forward can still be found.  As with Obama, the legacy of this current parliament is going to depend on the ability or lack thereof to form meaningful consensus.

CELAC’S RISING INFLUENCE AND DIMINISHING OF OAS Analysis by Rickey Singh THIS COLUMN was written as CARICOM Heads of Government and Foreign Ministers were returning home from participating in last week’s two-day second summit of the fledgling, but already well recognised influential Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in Havana, Cuba.   The final communiqué was not yet released but the ‘draft declaration’ highlighted firm commitment to ensuring the Region as a “zone of peace” and commitment to strengthening economic and cultural integration of all the 33 nations that comprise its membership.   It would therefore be interesting to learn what Caribbean Community Heads of Government—among them President Donald Ramotar--have to report to their respective country on the outcome of the summit.   Inaugurated in Caracas in December 2011 with then President Hugo Chavez as host and one of the prime initiators, CELAC is defined as a “counterpart” to the Washington-based Organisation of American States (OAS) with the distinguishing difference that neither the USA nor Canada is among the 33 member states of the Caribbean/Latin American Region. ZONE OF PEACE’ Promoting closest possible cooperation, CELAC’s commitment to peaceful development was underscored by its end-of summit ‘Draft Proclamation’ recognising the Region as a “zone of peace.”  With Cuba as host and then formally handing over the rotating annual chairmanship to Costa Rica, the CELAC summit further highlighted the dismal failure of more than half a century of strategies and tactics by the USA-- including clandestine activities launched from some nations of the hemisphere---to isolate Cuba which last month officially marked 55 years of the Fidel Castro-led revolution. As if to dramatise the impact of CELAC and the diminishing influence of the OAS, both Secre- PRESIDENT XI JINPING tary General of the United Nations (Ban Ki-Moon) and  the Secretary  General of the OAS (Chile’s Jose’ Miguel Insulza) were in attendance at the summit—the latter as an observer. It was the first time, since 1962 when, under enormous “Cold War” pressures from the USA, Cuba was expelled from the

hemispheric body—to which it chose not to return--that a serving OAS Secretary General had arrived in Cuba for a public event of international significance. And, as if to further underscore continuing significant changes--political, social, economic and cultural—away from the domi-



neering influence of the USA---Brazil’s President, Dilma Rousseff, took the opportunity of the CELAC Summit to formally inaugurate the first phase of Cuba’s modernised deep water seaport at Mariel, funded by her country at a cost of US$957 million.     



UN’s Ban/China’s Xi                             To say that was a practical manifestation of solidarity as Cuba continues to combat the negative consequences of half a century of the US economic blockade may be an understatement. But the UN

Secretary General was ready with a very encouraging message of his own: “It is especially meaningful,” Ban Ki-Moon told the summit, “to be in attendance on the anniversary of the birth of the great Jose Marti…He was an inspiration not only for this country’s independence, but for shaping the Latin American identity…” Declaring that the Region continues to face some serious chal-



lenges, the Secretary General said he was, however, pleased to see a region “determined to tackle its obstacles together….This summit”, he added, “is proof of just that”. He pledged the support of the United Nations “in all aspects of our shared agenda.” CELAC summit, representing 33 nations with a combined population of some 600 million multi-ethnic, multi-cultural peoples, was a history-making event in various ways. And President Xi Jinping of China—principal rival of the USA  for competing political/economic influence in Latin America—was ready to hail on Thursday, in a congratulatory message to host President Castro, the decision in Havana to establish a “China-CELAC Forum.”  This Forum initiative is viewed as a prelude to CELAC’s already declared intention to access membership of the BRIC bloc of five major countries---Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa— whose economic agenda includes creation of a special bank to cater to specific needs of poor and developing nations.    The vibrancy of initiatives by CELAC in strengthening cooperation for economic and cultural integration could, in the assessment of informed hemispheric watchers, further marginalise the OAS which has traditionally been subjected to orchestrated political influence by successive administrations in Washington---even long after the expiry of the ‘Cold War.’ In this context, the birth and defined policies and programmes of CELAC mark a significantly new beginning for the peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean.

The Constitution supersedes the National Assembly Budget Cuts

By Dr. Prem Misir

AGAIN, the predictable annual budget war is upon us in Guyana. The Opposition’s war-wearied wailing of having had no consultations to input budget 2014 has become the norm at this time of the year, even though budgetary consultations should begin the day after an existing budget is approved. This annual budget war and cry for consultations have probably graduated to becoming an annual festival, and perhaps, it is time to accord them a national holiday status. However, for all intents and purposes, the sole player in this war is the one-seat majority Opposition. But in order to have a war, there must be at least two players, and only the Opposition is engaged. Therefore, the war is not real, possibly rhetorical. Perhaps, the Opposition’s placement of itself on this hypothetical war footing is profoundly motivated by its majority of one in the National Assembly, where it feels it could win the day on almost anything in the parliamentary chambers through simple math. But this simple math does not favour the Opposition when it comes to the budgetary proceedings. You see even wars, real or unreal, have written rules of engagement. Recently, Acting Chief Justice, Ian Chang ordered compliance with the rules governing the budgetary process in the National Assembly, and asserted that there were clear violations of constitutional rules in the budget cuts over the last two years. In making his ruling, the Acting Chief Justice invoked Article 171 (2) (a) (ii) and Article 218 of the Constitution. Here is Article 171: “(2) Except on the recommendation or with the consent of the Cabinet signified by a Minister, the Assembly shall not –– (a) proceed upon any Bill (including any amendment to a Bill) which, in the opinion of the person presiding, makes provision for any of the following purposes –– (ii) for imposing any charge upon the Consolidated Fund or any other public fund of Guyana or for altering any such charge otherwise than by reducing it;…” (Guyana Act No. 2 of 1980 Constitution of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana Act 1980) The Acting Chief Justice Chang explained that without the consent of the Cabinet, the National Assembly cannot pursue any bill that would constitute a charge on the Consolidated Fund. Here is part of Article 218: “(1) The Prime Minister or any other Minister designated by the President shall cause to be prepared and laid before the National Assembly before or within ninety days after the commencement of each financial year estimates of the revenues and expenditure of Guyana for that year…” (Guyana Act No. 2 of 1980

Constitution of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana Act 1980). In his interpretation of part of Article 218, Acting Chief Justice Chang noted that the proposed budget is really the Minister of Finance’s estimates that the National Assembly is empowered to approve, but not BY DR. PREM MISIR to amend; for if the National Assembly makes cuts to the estimates, then the estimates; become the National Assembly ‘s estimates, and not the Minister’s estimates. Constitutionally, therefore, the National Assembly and income support; and three, the increased influence of interest cannot cut the Minister’s estimates, but has the authority to apor lobbying groups on politicians. These three factors ensure that prove or reject the estimates. Acting Chief Justice Chang further parliamentary influence is not strong enough to hurt a governnoted that any cut becomes a ‘done deal’, a fait accompli, and as ment’s legislative agenda, including the budget. such does not give the Minister the chance to address the National Evidently, the Guyana Constitution is not only the architect of Assembly’s concerns through amending his own estimates. but wields supreme status and power over the National Assembly or Chang’s ruling implies that the savage ˜15% cuts to the Guyana Parliament, for as in the case of budget matters, Article 171 (2) (a) Budget 2013 equivalent to $31 billion on the Cheddi Jagan Airport (ii) and Article 218 of the Constitution do not authorise the National Modernisation Project, Ogle Aerodrome assistance, CJIA cooperation, Assembly to cut, increase, or reallocate the budgetary estimates.

Opposition must respect Court’s ruling NOW that the Court has made its ruling on the question of the legality of the Budget cuts, the spotlight now falls squarely on the parliamentary opposition, as to what its next step will be. First of all, the principled stand for the combined opposition to take in the very immediate circumstance is to respect the Court’s ruling. And this advice is given, notwithstanding whatever plans for appeal there may be. Already, the Speaker has spoken about the implications that such a decision will have for the future workings of the House. But, be that as it may, the Honourable Raphael Trotman must be careful  to issue statements that will either directly or indirectly contribute to a continued state of rancour and gridlock.

Guyana tops list for possible further FATF sanctions - Granger insists support for AML/CFT Bill depends on Opposition bills being assented to By Vanessa Narine

LEADER of the main Opposition, David Granger on Friday made it clear that A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) will not approve the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering of the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Bill unless other bills passed by the combined Opposition are assented to. “We will certainly not approve the money laundering bill unless the President assents to the bills that were passed,” Granger said at an APNU media briefing. His comments came on the same day that the Frenchbased Financial Action Task Force (FATF) issued a statement that listed Guyana as the number one country in the Americas that could be taken on by the International Cooperation Review Group’s (ICRG) for review and possibly further sanctions. The FATF’s statement said: “The methodology to prioritise jurisdictions in the pool for ICRG review was adopted by the FATF in October 2010. “It builds on four financial indicators – total value of Domestic Financial Assets (in USD billion); total Domestic Financial Assets expressed in percentage of GDP; Cross Border Interbank Assets (in USD billion) and Remittances Inflows and Outflows (in USD

million) – to rank the jurisdictions in the pool from 1 to 10, where the higher final ranking means larger and more integrated financial sector.” According to the statement Guyana scored 8.125 out of 10. Guyana was ahead of Haiti, Aruba, Belize, Suriname, Turks

ation of the matter by the main Opposition. “The only reason to block this Bill will be to protect money launderers and terrorists,” Nandlall said. There are currently three methods by which a jurisdiction could enter the ICRG process: nomination; referral based on mutual evaluation results; and referral based on non-participation in an FSRB (FATF-style Regional Bodies, which includes CFATF) and non-publication of mutual evaluation reports. The FATF is expected to hold a review in February review, which Guyana could be included in, following CFATF’s. OF NOTE Nandlall added that of note is the detailed mention by FAFT of the fact that Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF)

has already blacklisted Guyana. FATF’s advisory on the possibility of the ICRG review made clear that in November 2013 CFATF designated Guyana as a country with strategic anti-money laundering and countering the financing terrorism deficiencies that has not made sufficient progress in addressing the deficiencies and have not complied with its Action Plan developed with CFATF to address these deficiencies. FATF’s statement said: “This public statement contains relevant information that countries and the private sector, as part of their implementation of the risk-based approach, should be aware… the November 2013 CFATF public statement indicated that this jurisdiction had made significant progress in addressing its strategic AML/ CFT deficiencies.” CFAT’s November statement said, “The CFATF calls on its members to consider implementing counter-measures to protect their financial systems from the ongoing money laundering and terrorist financing risks emanating from each jurisdiction. “In November 2011, the CFATF brought to the attention of its Members certain jurisdictions, including Guyana, with significant strategic deficiencies in their AML/CFT regime. “With a view to encouraging expeditious rectification of the identified strategic deficiencies Guyana and the CFATF developed an Action Plan with identified target dates to address the strategic deficiencies

that exist in Guyana’s national architecture to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism. “As a result of not meeting the agreed timelines in its Action Plan, the CFATF issued a public statement in May 2013 recommending that Guyana take steps to ensure that it addressed its AML/CFT deficiencies. “Guyana has made efforts to address its deficiencies, however, it has not taken sufficient steps towards improving its AML/CFT compliance regime by failing to approve and implement required legislative reforms. “Guyana must therefore pass the relevant legislation and implement all the outstanding issues within its Action Plan including: 1) fully criminalising money laundering and terrorist financing offences; 2) addressing all the requirements on beneficial ownership; 3) strengthening the requirements for suspicious transaction reporting, international co-operation, and the freezing and confiscation of terrorist assets; and 4) fully implementing the UN conventions. “Members are therefore called upon to consider implementing counter-measures to protect their financial systems from the ongoing money laundering and terrorist financing risks emanating from Guyana.” In addition to FATF’s February deadline, CFATF itself is expected to review Guyana’s position in May 2014 at its next meeting

Agricola woman murdered, UK - female GDF rank in custody citizen hospitalised By Leroy Smith FIFTY-FIVE year old Donna Taylor was on Friday night found murdered in her back yard with her throat slit and hands bound behind her back. Her visiting friend from the United Kingdom Samantha Sabat who was also at the woman’s home at the time of the incident is presently hospitalised at a city hospital. The Guyana Chronicle was informed that the UK -based resident might have been thrown over the verandah of the

two-flat building located at Lot 16/17 Agricola Main Road, East Bank of Demerara. Information reaching this newspapers indicated the death of the 55-year old woman and the injury of her friend was committed by an intruder who is either known or unknown to the family. However, the police have arrested the girlfriend of the dead woman’s son. Speaking with the Guyana Chronicle yesterday next to where his wife’s body lay motionless the night before, Bertram Taylor said that he was

at work when he received a call from his daughter that his wife was murdered at their home. The man said that he rushed home only to find his wife lying in the yard with her throat slit and hands tied. The man said that before reaching his wife he bumped into his wife’s friend who was lying in the yard bleeding from a wound to the head, he said that at first he thought the woman was dead but when he went over her he realised that she was still breathing and she was rushed to the hospital.

The dead woman’s husband points to the spot in the yard where his wife lay dead on Saturday night

At the time the man spoke with this publication yesterday, he said that the UK citizen was still unable to speak much but was recovering. He said that she is the person who holds the answer to all of the many unanswered questions, including who invaded the home and who carried out the act. The woman travelled to Guyana in January to attend the funeral of her father who was buried two weeks ago and remained in the county to transact some other business. From all indications the relatives of the dead woman are not treating the incident as a robbery since nothing was taken from the home. The man who works as a security guard said that he was told that persons heard a noise coming from the house and telephoned his daughter. His son works with him at the security service.

He said that the woman is a very aggressive person and his son was not willing to carry on the relationship with her any longer. The younger Taylor is said to have a very good relationship with his mother and did indicate to her that he was breaking off the relationship with the GDF rank, the young man also informed the young lady that he was not willing to continue a relationship with her. The Chronicle was told that the last such message the man gave the young lady saw her falling to her knees and begging the man not to leave her as she promised to change her ways and review her attitude towards him but the man would have none of it. It is not clear if the woman believed that her boyfriend’s mother engineered the breakup and decided to take revenge on the woman by attacking her in her home. However, the police reported yesterday that they have a female in custody who is assisting with the investigation. On Saturday morning at the police station, the GDF rank was being questioned when it was observed that the pants she wore at the station is not the same pants she was spotted with at the murder scene, the police then sought to question her about the pants she was wearing earlier and she attempted to deny that she ever had a change of clothing. However, she later told the police that the pants she was wearing is that of her boyfriend and the police told her that she needed to bring to the police station the pants she was wearing when she was at the murder scene and she was accompanied to uplift the item. It was then that it was realised that the pants that the woman changed had blood stains but she told the police that what they were seeing is not blood stains but rather it was paint. The pants has been lodged by the police and could be one of the main pieces of exhibit for evidence should the woman be charged for murder and attempted murder. Yesterday the husband of the dead woman explained that he was never really comfortable with his son seeing the GDF officer but he never allowed his personal feelings to be imposed on his son or to influence his decision hence his decision not to tell his son much, with respect to the relationship he was in.

CJIA raked in over $1B in 2013 THE country’s main port of entry, the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) generated over $1B in revenue in 2013, but saw a reduction by 12 percent in visitor arrivals, as a result of Delta Airlines pulling out of Guyana in May. The airport’s total expenditure for 2013 amounted to $588M as compared to the $493M spent for the same period in 2012. This increase in expenditures was mainly due to additional staffing. The total passenger movements for 2013 amounted to 479,177 compared to 543,374 in 2012, while the airport recorded 3,811 international aircraft movements up to December 2013 as compared to 4,640 for the same period in 2012 (an 18% decrease). Imported cargo amounted to 2,287 tonnes; a 5% increase over the previous year, while exports amounted to 2,462 tonnes or a 36% increase over that of 2012. SAFETY   In November, CJIA hosted its simulated aircraft crash, which was conducted to test the preparedness of the airport to respond to an actual emergency. While there were challenges, a team of critics drawn from the GCAA, Guyana Defence Force, Guyana Police Force, Civil Defence Commission, Ministry of Health and airline operators, deemed the activity a success. About 300 persons participated including five medical

institutions and over 70 police officers.   SECURITY In January 2013, the Corporation was audited by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the United States. The team found that the security systems and regulations at the airport were in full compliance with ICAO Annex 17 and TSA Security Regulations. The GCCA conducted an audit inspection of CJIA facilities during the period June 25 to 27, 2013, as part of the annual re-certification process of CJIA’s Aerodrome. A new non-intrusive body scanner was purchased for the departure area at a cost of $40M. This modern TSA approved Full Body Scanner uses safe active millimeter wave (MMW) radio frequency technology and can scan 200 - 300 persons per hour. Passengers’ privacy is guaranteed since potential threat areas are presented to the operator using a generic mannequin that resembles a human outline. A new security office and hut costing a total of $3M were constructed during the period. For the year 2013, 160 persons, including new CJIA employees and staff of other agencies operating in the airport, were trained under this programme.  Thirty Aviation Security Officers were recruited, bringing the total number to 60. The increased staffing allows greater

In response to various security threats, several mitigating measures were also implemented. Additional monitoring of ground equipment and areas such as Baggage Make Up, Apron and Customs Shed were introduced.


Several discoveries were made during 2013 between CJIA and the Joint Law enforcement agencies. Again, the drug traffickers found very innovative ways of conceal-

ing the illegal substances for movement through the airport. Cocaine amounting to 51.64kg was discovered at CJIA, while 14.86kg was discovered at JFK, totalling 66.50kg AIRLINES   Caribbean Airlines on February 10, 2013, launched direct flights between the John F Kennedy Airport, New York and CJIA. This supplemented the

already existing direct flights between Guyana and Toronto. These direct flights are being operated using the Boeing 767300 aircraft. Suriname Airways continued to provide twice weekly roundtrip service on the Paramaribo-Georgetown-Miami route with its 126 seat B737-300 aircraft, while LIAT occasionally provided service on the Barbados- Georgetown route using the ATR 72 aircraft.

Fly Jamaica commenced operations in August 2013 flying the Georgetown to Jamaica to New York route. The aircraft has a total seating capacity of 198. Travelspan began flights out of the CJIA on December 14, while on November 23, the Venezuelan Government launched its inaugural flight of their National Carrier, CONVIASA Aero, to Guyana.

Farmers holding out for higher paddy prices By Vanessa Narine

GENERAL Secretary of the Guyana Rice Producers’ Association (RPA), Dharamkumar Seeraj yesterday confirmed that there are still approximately 100,000 tonnes of paddy from the last crop of 2013 still to be sold. He said, “We can sell all the paddy tomorrow, but the farmers are holding out for better prices. We have 22 per cent of the crop still in the system, and harvesting of a new crop is scheduled to begin later this month. “The reality is that the price for paddy will fall,” he said, and it is a fact that farmers would have to face,

- but RPA Head says prices will fall

Seeraj explained that farmers have become accustomed to selling most of their yields to Venezuela, which offers somewhat better prices than what obtains in other markets. However, he said, as efficiency and productivity improve in the rice sector, Venezuela will account for a smaller percentage of Guyana’s rice exports. Seeraj said: “When we were producing just over 300,000 tonnes, Venezuela accounted for over 60 per cent of our exports. Now we have gone past that mark, with over 500,000 tonnes, of which only 30 per cent was exported to Venezuela. This means that 30 per cent of the exports attract-

ed the best prices.” Seeraj said that even when Guyana concludes a new agreement with Venezuela, which is expected to happen by the end of this week, the sector’s entire yield will not benefit from the prices offered by Venezuela. He noted that Guyana is hoping to expand the current agreement with Venezuela, wherein 110,000 tonnes of white rice and 80,000 tonnes of paddy are supplied to Venezuela. The RPA head maintained that the supply and demand dynamic presents a challenge for the industry, and is one that has the attention of major stakeholders. “It is an industry

issue,” he said. Seeraj added that this is where aggressive marketing efforts come in to secure new markets for Guyana’s rice. He said Guyana is looking to increase its market share in existing markets, as it simultane-

Dharamkumar Seeraj ously continues talks with new markets. THREE-PRONGED APPROACH In a prior interview with this publication, Agriculture Minister, Dr. Leslie Ramsammy had said that a three-pronged approach is being taken to increase exports in the sector:increasing the market share in countries that have agreements with Guyana, re-entering old

markets where the country once had a meaningful presence and securing new markets. “I am currently talking to several countries,” he said, declining to name them as negotiations are still at an early stage. Ramsammy added that efforts are underway to have Venezuela, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, as well as countries in Europe review existing agreements for paddy and rice exports. He explained that the Caribbean countries and Venezuela currently import rice from other countries besides Guyana, and there is an opportunity to secure greater shares in those existing markets. On the matter of re-entering old markets, he said: “Countries like Cuba and Haiti used to account for exports of between 30,000 and 40,000 tonnes of rice. We had a meaningful presence in those markets.” Ramsammy pointed out that, in the case of Haiti, since the earthquake that devastated that nation’s capital, much of the rice entering the country has been in the form of aid; but with the country in a position to purchase its own rice requirements, Guyana can take advantage of that market. He added that, in 2006, Haitian national, Saj-Steven Angele Jeff Khauly began operating a mill, Saj Rice Mill in Region

5 (Mahaica/Berbice), under a 10-year lease and in an undertaking that facilitated trade to that country. Earlier this year, the facility was upgraded, with new equipment and a new generator system, among other things; and the company has indicated its interest in extending its lease to 20 years. “There are opportunities that we can take advantage of,” Minister Ramsammy said. Another area Guyana can make strides in to increase exports in the rice sector, according to the minister, is the promotion of private sector-to-private sector agreements. “Getting the private sector itself connected with private sectors in other countries can boost our exports,” Ramsammy said. He maintained that the consistent improvements in the sector are encouraging, and bode well for advances on different fronts. The production target for the first crop of 2014 is 270,000 tonnes, and the RPA General Secretary expressed confidence that it could be met. The production for 2013 was 535,212 tonnes, which is far above the original target of 413,000 tonnes, and reflects a 27 per cent increase over the production in 2012. The average production per hectare is five tonnes.

Budget consultation with Finance Minister was constructive, informative-FITUG representative HEAD of the Guyana Labour Union (GLU), Carvil Duncan, whose union is part of the trade union umbrella grouping the federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana (FITUG) has described the consultation with Finance Minister, Dr Ashni Singh on the 2014 National Budget as productive and informative. Duncan said: “The meeting with the minister was constructive and informative. The intention was to discuss FITUG’s thinking on what should be in the budget to the benefit of the workers we represent.” “We presented a five- point agenda for the minister to consider and we left very satisfied that the minister was courteous to have invited us to be part of his budget consultations. We left satisfied with the outcome of the meeting. We did not go into the meeting expecting any concrete conclusions, but just for the minister to consider our needs as he prepares his budget for 2014.” “The minister even told us that we can write to him after the meeting, should we have any fresh ideas that should be considered. We have enjoyed the courtesy extended by government to be part of the consultation meetings this year as we have in previous years and we expect that the same professional courtesy will be extended to us by the current administration.” Minister of Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh met last week with members of the FITUG, as part of government’s ongoing efforts to engage all stakeholders in the course of preparations of Budget 2014. The minister thanked FITUG for the several constructive suggestions and recommendations they have made over the years and which have informed government policy on a number of important issues. The minister also acknowledged the forthright positions taken by FITUG on issues of national importance, including the condemnation of the budget cuts imposed by the Opposition in previous years, which have since been ruled to be unconstitutional by the Chief Justice (ag).

Judgments, decisions, orders of the court must be obeyed by all - Chancellor of the Judiciary THE response by politicians of the two major political parties to the Chief Justice’s ruling recently handed down in the 2012 budget cut case continues to evoke concerns by functionaries within the legal sector.

In an invited comment on the issue, Chancellor of the Judiciary (ag), Justice Carl Singh stated that the principle of “obedience to the law” requires every citizen to respect and obey judgments/decisions and orders of the courts.

He further noted that “the general principle is that no matter how erroneous or flawed an order of a court may be perceived to be, that order must be respected, obeyed and/or complied with until it is set aside by a superior court.

JUSTICE CARL SINGH The doctrine of the separation of powers does not insulate any branch of government or the

representatives of such branch from the obligation to show respect for and obedience to orders of the courts. Where there is defiance and disobedience to orders of the courts, the result is a state of anarchy, chaos, and confusion.” Both the Leader of the Opposition, David Granger and Leader of the Alliance For Change, Khemraj Ramjattan have indicated publicly that the ruling is wrong and they will not abide by it, and will cut the 2014 budget although the ruling clearly says that they have no lawful right to do so. Recently, the Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall issued a statement on this matter in which he stated that, “the position is, unless and until, a pronouncement made by a court is set aside by another court of competent jurisdiction, that

pronouncement must be obeyed and respected by all, irrespective how wrong one may feel that pronouncement is. This is an elementary principle which harbours no exception whatsoever. It is designed to protect and maintain the integrity of the administration of justice, the rule of law, and indeed the entire society.” He explained that the, “Doctrine of Separation of Powers devolves onto the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary clearly delineated and defined powers and functional responsibilities. The Constitution recites them in its provisions. Each of these organs is expected to operate within their respective provinces and not to trespass on to the territorial power and responsibility of the other. Importantly, they must discharge their functions independently, but with reciprocal comity.”

GEM: Guyana’s premiere lifestyle magazine turns 10

GUYANA’s publishing graveyard is littered with failed magazines, newspapers and newsletters from over the last 100 years. Most have met their demise due to the lack of resources, thus failing to make it past one or a few editions. Now fast forward to 2014 and the success story of Guyana Entertainment Magazine (GEM), Guyana’s first lifestyle and entertainment magazine, which has weathered the storm to celebrate a decade in existence. Launched on January 30, 2004 at the Tower Hotel in Georgetown, this bi-monthly magazine made history when it drastically changed the publishing landscape in Guyana with its high quality, full-coloured glossy look. Their journey began in 2002, a full two years before the actual launch of GEM when its founder and publisher, Mr. Simeon Corbin, who was based overseas at the time, contemplated doing an events calendar-type publication. The idea at the time was to inform locals and visitors to the country about the entertainment and other activities occurring year-round. After lengthy and convincing discussions with his family and friends, Mr. Corbin’s concept soon developed into a fullsize lifestyle and entertainment magazine, and as the saying goes, the rest is history. GEM’s premiere edition was truly a work of art, as it was the first time, people, places and events related to Guyana were presented in an international quality magazine with features pertaining to our culture and lifestyle running from cover to cover. Gracing the first cover

was Miss Guyana Universe 2004 2nd runner-up, Michelle Armstrong, brightly dressed in a Mashramani costume on a glossy yellow background. “In the beginning, the odds appeared to be against us,” said Mr. Corbin, who spoke candidly about the early days of GEM. “You see, around that time, people had a very negative perception of Guyana as a crime-ridden country where all we did was run around the streets committing crimes. Today, the image of the country has changed tremendously, not only because of GEM, but also because other forms of media outlets had taken up the torch of helping to shine a brighter light on the positive sides of our society.” Corbin further added that before GEM arrived on the scene, people were accepting the mediocrity being passed as “quality” in publishing at the time. There is no doubt that GEM with its world-class pictures and to-the-point style of reporting has raised the stakes in magazine production and changed the way people see Guyana. Even when things are not at its best in society, the magazine always seems to find ways of delivering uplifting content. In the years since its inception, GEM has continuously upped the ante after miraculously withstanding the ups and downs of Guyana’s economy and a world recession to deliver 60 editions - all masterly done.

Over the years, they have seen great measures of success with small, medium and large sized companies seizing the opportunity to promote their products among its glossy pages. GEM has also had a potpourri of who’s who in business, sports, entertainment, music, fashion and media on its covers. Although GEM is definitely a success story in comparison to the many magazines which have failed throughout the years, Mr. Corbin tells us that: “Before our first issue came out, things didn’t look too good. We weren’t able to secure any sponsorship, but we went ahead anyway and published the first edition because we had very strong convictions about our product and its concept. To our surprise though, the first edition did reasonably well on the news-stands and generated enough of a buzz which gave us the much needed inspiration to do the second one.” Speaking with Managing Editor and a Director at GEM, Mrs. Coretta Corbin-Rival also remembers that: “GEM was a hard sell to some editors, writers and photographers since many people did not understand the concept of the magazine, and didn’t believe that we could do an all-positive presentation for Guyana. The idea at the time was that if you were getting into media, you were supposed to be political, and either for or against the government and your stories must also be ap-

propriately slanted. You were not expected to take the middle ground.” Mrs. Corbin-Rival added that like the publisher, she too was never interested in Guyana’s political arena, so it was easy to help GEM position itself on a middle ground and to focus on the positives and the best of Guyana. This stance has occasionally drawn the wrath of some critics who accused GEM of being biased and on one side of the political spectrum. Despite the critics, she added that they will continue to

focus on the positive lifestyle trends of Guyanese because the readers are hungry for inspirational entertainment. Under the leadership of Mr. Corbin, there was an editorial decision from the beginning to transcend race, politics, religion and class to focus on promoting the country. Today, those vows still remain very sacred, and will be used as the foundation on which they will propel themselves into the next decade. The magazine continues to make a genuine effort to reach out and be an

inclusive outlet for Guyanese of all walks of life. Their aim is to make everyone who encounters GEM feel that they are part of a unique experience. Six times a year, this international magazine covers exciting social events and other thought-provoking lifestyle topics. As Guyana continues to develop, the magazine plans to continue evolving to reflect society’s ever changing trends. It is what people read to find out what or who is happening—it

Religious leader mulls QC scholarship f By Shirley Thomas

proposal has been put to Prime Minister Samuel Hinds, that a scholarship to attend Queen’s College (QC) be granted to 11-year-old Roberto Thomas, who was seriously wounded, but miraculously survived the horrendous attack on the people of Lusignan on January 26, 2008. This proposal was made by Pastor Balgobin Ragnauth of Lifesprings Ministries International, Chateau Margot, as he addressed the Central Islamic Organisation Of Guyana (CIOG)-sponsored ‘Evening of Remembrance’ last Sunday for the 11 persons slain in the Lusignan Massacre, as well as the 12 gunned down in a shooting rampage at Bartica on February 17, three weeks later. The proposal was supported by Pandit Haresh Tiwarie who was also one of the speakers at the forum. Roberto who was just five years at the time of the massacre lost his father: Clarence 52, sister Vanessa 12 and brother Ron, then 11. They were all shot and killed by the marauding gunmen who invaded their home and four others, mercilessly killing those within their reach. Of the three wounded survivors, two were from the Thomases household. They are: Roberto himself, his 19-year-old brother, and a neighbour, Nazir Mohammed. Mohamed whose 22-year-old son Shazam was gunned down, managed to escape death, but was shot in both legs and remained warded at the GPHC for several weeks. Meanwhile, Howard was shot in the shoulder and suffered shattered bones and was on the verge of losing his arm. Roberto, at the tender age of five, survived gunshot wounds to the abdomen with protruding intestines. After his first surgery he had to be taken back for a second surgery to repair the wounds. He spent three months in hospital, and initially was in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on life support. Howard spent three months in the High Dependency Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) as well. Their mother, Gowmattie who hid

behind a curtain escaped unhurt. With the best efforts by doctors and divine intervention, both brothers are today healed and doing fine. Roberto who is developing into a fine young man, attends the Valmiki Vidyalaya Primary, a private school at Lusignan, and was described by teachers at his school as a quiet, mannerly and polite child, with respect for authority. He is in Grade Six and is preparing to write the National Grade Six Assessment Examination in just over a month. He has his eye on becoming an engineer. And even though he had suffered such severe abdominal injuries, this is not impeding his athletic performance. He has emerged champion runner for the school in both 2012 and 2013 and has won several medals and trophies. Meanwhile, observing the toll the horrible incident would have taken on the survivors and other bereaved relatives of those slain, and the psychological impact through the years, Pastor Balgobin asked those assembled: “How can we be who we used to be, when we don’t have those who used to be with us? How do we relate to that fiveyear-old child, now 11 and who has lost his father, brother and sister in the massacre? “ He added: “A child would be traumatised who has lost someone …. Who hasn’t gone to school for so long and who, when everybody else is looking at books, he’s looking at blood.” Against this backdrop, Pastor Ragnauth declared, “Is it difficult to put the proposal of scholarship for such a child?” CAPTION: Photos saved in Graphics as ‘Lusignan

OUTGOING Indian High Commissioner, Puran Mal Meena paid a courtesy call on President Donald Ramotar on Thursday and the meeting saw them recommitting to the continuation of the two countries’ historical friendship and the enhancement of various areas of cooperation. Mr. Meena was accredited on May 30, 2012 and replaced Subit Kumar Mandal. The new Indian High Commissioner to Guyana is Venkatachalam Mahalingam, a career diplomat. The world’s largest democracy has contributed much to Guyana’s development and through its line of credit for various projects such as the Guyana National Stadium at Providence and the Specialty Hospital that will be constructed soon. Further cooperation between the two countries in the examination of the production of energy and electricity through bio-mass of agriculture waste is planned. Guyana has also benefitted immensely from the Indian Technical Economic Cooperation (ITEC) programme in areas such as education, provision of equipment, Transmission and Broadcasting, Legal, Disaster Management, Coconut, Spices and Institutional Development. Scholarships have also been granted to Guyanese nationals in the fields of Hydrology, Engineering, Cyber Technology, Management, Education, Agriculture, Horticulture, Banking and Financial Services, Environment Protection, and Public Management among others.

UG students participate in exchange programme with US institutions

THE University of Guyana (UG) has partnered with the U.S. Embassy and an American NGO named ‘One World Youth Project’ (OWYP) in a dynamic cross-cultural exchange programme named “Virtually There: Expanding Cultural Exchanges Between the United States and Guyana” whereby 11 students from UG have participated in an exchange programme in the United States during the period January 25 to February 2, 2014. In the USA, the Guyanese students had opportunity to engage their peers from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. and Boston University in Massachusetts, visiting those campuses to briefly witness U.S. university student life and participate in community-building and service projects. They also met with officials from the Department of State and the U.S. Institute for Peace, and discussed issues important to youth in Guyana with Guyana’s Ambassador to the United States. The Virtually There exchange programme follows a long-term project spearheaded by OWYP to provide enhanced, multifaceted social media interaction between students and schools, and to strengthen global skills training. OWYP works with UG student leaders throughout the year to develop a service-learning programme at the university, after which participants train their fellow students to become experts in a global mindset curriculum. UG students interact virtually through social media with students at Georgetown and Boston universities. At the same time, weekly lessons are facilitated in a virtual exchange between the Richard Ishmael Secondary School in Guyana and counterpart classrooms at U.S. middle schools. The year-long curriculum, like the Virtually There exchange, offers these secondary and tertiary students a unique cross-cultural experience that enables them to develop Virtually There exchange participants with US Ambassador to Guyana, Mr Brent Hardt global life skills, which would enhance their readiness for a range of careers requiring international experience and understanding.

quality print media production. They plan to intensify their presence by expanding on social media, television and doing more in-depth coverage of indi-

viduals in the Diaspora who are making a significant impact in society. Their main aim in 2014 is to focus on volunteerism and giving back to Guyana by increasing their partnerships with non-government organisations. When pressed to comment on the secret to the magazine’s success, especially in an industry where so many others have tried but failed, Mr. Corbin would only say: “GEM has and will always be about our beautiful country, our loyal readers, supporters, advertisers and friends and never about us and our egos.” The publisher and staff of GEM took the opportunity to extend genuine and heartfelt thanks to all its faithful friends, readers and clients for rejecting outdated business attitudes to give the magazine a fair chance and an equal opportunity to proudly celebrate Guyana in print, online and on television. GEM is available at most news-stands in Guyana and via world-wide subscription. There are plans to host a number of activities including charitable donations to mark this momentous milestone for the magazine.

CARICOM SG says change is underway DELIVERING remarks at the opening of the 33rd Meeting of the Community Council of Ministers at the CARICOM Secretariat in Liliendaal, Ambassador LaRicque announced that the Secretariat’s work programme had also been redesigned to provide for a more outcome-oriented focus, guided by goal management. “There is still some way to go, but change is underway,” LaRocque told the gathering of ministers and delegates who hold responsibility for Community issues. Progress in undertaking reform, he pointed out, has encountered some challenges, including those that relate to the Secretariat’s aging information technology infrastructure, staff retention, and the increasing inflexibility in the use of donor resources. “Taken all together, these factors, along with the challenging economic and fiscal situation faced by our member states, affect the ability of the Secretariat to maintain and improve on our service to the Community, and the implementation of the work programme. In the face of ever increasing mandates, the need for prioritization, which lies at the heart of the decision by Heads of Government to devise a strategic plan, becomes paramount in order to ensure the focused and optimal use of our human and financial resources,” LaRocque said. His comments were made in the context of the finalisation and approval of the Community’s first Community Strategic Plan, a major component of the reform process now being conducted, and under which the restructuring of the CARICOM Secretariat falls. The Secretariat’s restructuring will be significantly influenced by the Strategic Plan. Consideration of the Executive Summary of the five-year strategic plan of the Irwin LaRocque community is one of the key agenda items of the one-day meeting of the Community Council. The final draft of the plan is to be placed before the Heads of Government of CARICOM at their Twenty-fifth Inter-sessional Meeting, to be held in St. Vincent and the Grenadines from 24th to 25th February, 2014. The Community Council will also deliberate on the budget of the Secretariat, contingent rights, and the implications of the Shanique Myrie ruling handed down by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), the ruling of the Dominican Constitutional Court on nationality, and matters related to sustainable development of the Region.

Port Mourant slayings may have been a retaliatory act By Jeune Bailey Van Keric SLEUTHS investigating the double slaying which occurred at Port Mourant, 15 miles off the Corentyne thoroughfare

on Thursday, are working on the theory that the incident may have been a retaliatory act, as one of the victims Krisnauth Jagdeo, was recently freed from a murder charge. Jagdeo was implicated in the vigilante-style killings in

which 45-year old Alfred Munroe, alias Iguana Man succumbed to multiple injuries, after he was allegedly beaten by a group of persons at Rose Hall, Corentyne in May last year Jadgeo was among five persons who faced the capital charge which was subsequently dismissed due to legal technicalities. Jagdeo, alias Chris, 46,  of Free Yard, Port Mourant ,along with  Seafiel Layne, 48, a  labourer of No 1 Road Corentyne, Berbice, were  shot  in the neck and temple ,respectively, with a shot gun , after the boat in which they were travelling were ambushed by men , one of whom was on horseback. Their workmates,  David Harpaul, 38,  of Rose Hall Town,  Clement Griffith, 48,  all labourers along Krisnauth Jagdeo with Fazel Abrahim, 25, a mechanic of Port Mourant and Black Bush Polder respectively, are currently in a critical condition at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) and New Amsterdam Hospital respectively, . Sources close to the investigation revealed that the slayings were planned and the victims were caught unaware resulting in extensive injuries. Staff at the surgical theatre at the New Amsterdam Hospital worked tirelessly until the wee hours of Friday morning in an attempt to restore the health and well-being of Harpaul, a father of four. Relatives and curious onlookers flocked the male surgical ward in an effort to get a glimpse of the men whose lives are on the line. Some prayed quietly for a fast recovery. The Port Mourant Follow-Up is a co-operative society which is managed by three popular businessmen Kris Jagdeo of Jagdeo Construction, Kase ‘Manoj’ Singh of Spready’s Bakery and Pharmacist Poonai Bhirgoon. The men are involved in extensive rice cultivation in the backlands which is accessible by boat. Reports are that the deceased men were in the employment of Kris Jagdeo, while the three injured were employed with Singh. They had finished working and were on their way home in a wooden boat, when they were ambushed and shot at reportedly with shotguns by two men. David Harpaul, the boat captain, was reportedly shot in the right abdomen. He thereafter telephoned Poonai Bhirgoon and informed him of the situation, motoring for over two miles before boarding the vehicle which he had parked earlier that day. He continued for a similar distance, before losing consciousness. In the meantime, the businessmen accompanied the ambulance to the scene, allowing the injured to be transported to the Port Mourant Hospital and then transferred to the New Amsterdam Hospital. Harpaul was subsequently transferred to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation. Meanwhile, police rushed to the scene and found the two deceased men who were hauled from the watery grave.

Guyana must satisfy new EU criteria before accessing sea defence funding THE European Union (EU) announced on Friday that strict rules would be applied before Guyana could begin drawing down funds to strengthen its sea and river defence systems. The 10th European Development Fund (EDF) has allocated 14.8M Euros for Guyana’s sea and river defence sector in a budget-support programme; but the European Delegation here outlined a series of steps that the Guyana Government would have to take before the money could be released to combat sea and river incursion.

The EU said Guyana would first have to invest Gy$5.5 billion into the sector over the next three years, in order to prepare the groundwork and so satisfy the eligibility criteria regarding qualification for disbursements amounting to 14.8 million Euros. “In order for Guyana to qualify for financial disbursement under the 10th EDF Financing Agreement, the sea and river defence sector would have to satisfy specific performance criteria in investment and performance targets,

including a detailed annual implementation plan, capacity building plan, annual condition surveys of all 160 km of manmade sea defences, and implementation of an annual infrastructure programme as outlined in the Sector Policy Implementation Plan,” the EU said in a statement. Guyana’s topography renders it vulnerable to natural risks related to climate change and sea level rises, as most of the country’s key assets are located in vulnerable, low-lying areas and are protected by sea defences.

Ministry of Public Works assists M&CC with drainage THE Ministry of Public Works rendered assistance to the Mayor and City Council on Saturday with pumps to drain off water in inundated wards in Georgetown. A large pump was used at the Sussex Street canal sluice which alleviated the woes Albouystown residents suffer whenever it rains heavily. The pump discharged 40,000 gallons per minute. Additionally, a smaller pump was in operation at the Le Repentir Cemetery to drain the excess water into the Sussex Street canal.

All of the country’s towns and major settlements, and the vast majority of all ‘non– mining’ industrial activities, including agriculture and other economic activities, are undertaken within the 425-km long coastal zone - a fertile agricultural belt where it is estimated that 90% of the population resides. Much of this coastal plain lies at elevations of between 0.5 metre and 0.7 metre above mean

sea level, but is threatened by tides which rise to 1.6 metres above mean sea level. The EU noted that the Guyana Government continues to invest extensive resources into this sector to protect and maintain its structural integrity and advance sustainable shore zone management systems in Guyana, and has been partnering with the EU to protect and maintain the structural integrity of these systems.

Over the past 5 years, the GoG has invested over G$13.3B through its PSIP and through foreign investments into this sector. Also, Government continues to adopt and place high on its agenda alternative measures that will help to mitigate the effects of emergencies. The agreement was signed at the EU HQ in Brussels by Ms. Jolita Butkeviciene, Director for Latin America and Caribbean Affairs of the European Commission’s Directorate for Development and Cooperation (DEVCO).

SUNDAY CHRONICLE February 2, 2014


The Guyana Marathon! .... Niles captures NSC Mash From Page 39 prepared for attack on Athens the largest city of Greece. During the ensuing battle of Marathon  the  Athenian Army was outnumb e re d 4 t o 1 b u t t h e y launched a surprise offensive thrust which at the time appeared suicidal. By day’s end, it was recorded, 6400 Persian bodies

lay dead on the field while only 192 Athenians had been killed. The Persians retreated and the soldier Pheidippides was  called upon to run to Athens (26 miles away) to carry the news of the victory . Pushing himself past normal limits of human endurance, he reached Athens in 3 hours, delivered his message “ Rejoice ! We have won!”and died shortly thereafter from exhaustion. Centuries later, in 1896, the modern Olympic Games introduced a “marathon” race of (40,000 meters or 24.85 miles).  The winner was Spiridon Louis, a Greek postal worker from village of Marusi and veteran of several long military marches. His time was 2 hours, 58 minutes, 50 seconds for the 40 kilometer distance (average pace of  7:11 minutes per mile). At the 1908 Olympic Games in London, the marathon distance was changed to 26 miles to cover the ground from Windsor Castle to White City stadium, with 385 yards added on so the race could finish in front of King Edward VII’s royal box. Then after 16 years of extremely heated discussion, this 26.2 mile distance was established at the 1924 Olympics in Paris as the official marathon distance. The Guyanese marathons of the late 1950s were followed by the equally glorious Banks Classic Marathons. With the Marathons of the 1950s the route started at the then Atkinson Airport and ended at the seawall bandstand- the athletes ran against the wind. When sponsored by Banks DIH the race started at Mahaica and ended at Thirst Park a far less arduous course in relation to wind resistance. But it has  been quite a few years since we have had a 26 mile race in Guyana much to the sadness and disappointment of athletic sports lovers and fans. What are the prospects for the revival of this mythic race in Guyana? Minister of Sport Dr. Frank Anthony has said: “Well I can tell you this Ministry would really like to see a Guyana marathon. We need the Athletics Association to be fully involved in it because they would have the technical people the technical expertise to manage something like this.” He added:  “I have been talking about that for quite some time now but we are not getting traction and we don’t want to go it alone because we don’t feel that is a sustainable way of doing it.” Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Alfred King concurred with the need for involvement of all stakeholders. He added that the general

view is that Guyana does not have a wide pool of long distance athletes to complete that grueling race. He, however, pointed to the fact that the Ministry of Sport has been staging the Independence Half Marathon (13.1. miles) . He is hoping that participation in this race will grow and eventually create a field for a resumption of the epic Guyana marathons. Veteran Athletics coach Leslie Black agrees that the Marathon is a truly great race. He said: “Look if we don’t have enough locals to do it. We gotta bring in international athletes. We may not get it right, right away but once things are back the Guyana  Marathon will pick up.” He stressed: “ I met long distance runners  from Kenya who want to come to Guyana. One of them Kenyans told me he hear about  Kaieteur Falls and he wants to come.  But  the price gotta be right. A lot of long distance athletic stars will come to Guyana once the incentives are right.” He said that a Guyana Marathon has great potential for sports tourism. In his report on the March 1956 Marathon Wiltshire continued: Athletes and officials  slept at Atkinson on Saturday night. Some were still sound asleep while others were wide awake as starting time approached- 5 a.m. The boys freshened up and everyone looked confident and in the best of spirits when Major Wingate Gray of the Black Watch sounded the pistol to get them going. Thirty six runners started, a mere 11 finishing up to the time the cream of the crowd left the Seawall Bandstand, the finishing line.” Wiltshire ended his report on the March 1956 Marathon, with the following information: “The first six in were as follows: Clem Fields, Rose Hall Estate; H. Ishmael Sandbach Parker/ Humphrey trophy, O Lashley-Sandbach Parker; Sandbach Parker Cup; H. Persaud  (Sandbach Parker Clipper Cup) H Rahaman Uitvlugt Estate  (AAA and CU Cup); D Das (Sandback Parker AAA and CU Cup), Ken Richardson who was the seventh to cross  the line received a special prize. The presentations were made by Mrs. Ena  Luckhoo Mayoress of Georgetown.” In further comments on a revived Guyana Marathon, Minister Anthony recently said: “We can get  private sector people to give support but we need the Athletics Association to be fully involved. We need to encourage people to work on it. It’s not only a Ministry thing all of us have to be involved.”  

feature cycle race event

CARLTON wheelers cyclists Junior Niles captured the feature 35-lap event of the Annual National Sports Commission sponsored Mashramani 11-race cycle programme in the National Park yesterday. Niles who returned a time of one hour 17 minutes 36.45 seconds made his move with three laps remaining and opened a sizeable lead that he maintained for the remainder of the race. Niles who won by approximately 125 metres from the second finisher Orville Hinds failed to cop any of the eight prime prizes that were up for grabs. The feature event which began at a fast pace saw several of the competitors attempting to launch breaks but they were shut down by their rivals. However, during the 15 th lap Raynauth `Obeah Man’ Jeffrey” made a break and opened a sizeable lead over the chasing bunch, but after holding the lead for about five laps, he was wheeled in by the chasing pack. With 10 laps remaining, Robin surged ahead of the field, but was followed by a tightly group that included Raynauth Jeffrey and Stephen Fernandes that earlier made a break and controlled the race for a number of laps. With seven laps remaining, Persaud was joined by Paul Cho-Wee-Nam at the head of affairs and the duo led for another three laps before being joined by Orville Hinds and a host of other riders. In the end, Niles got away with two laps remaining and won with about125 metres ahead of the second place finisher, Orville Hinds.

Adam double helps Stoke heap more pain on Manchester United By Toby Davis

LONDON- (Reuters) - Charlie Adam scored twice as Stoke City beat Manchester United 2-1 yesterday to show the flailing Premier League champions it will take more than one big-money signing to improve their fortunes. The optimism created by Juan Mata’s transfer from Chelsea drained away as United were beaten for the third time in their last five league games, losing ground on rivals Everton, who beat Aston Villa 2-1, and Tottenham Hotspur who drew 1-1 at Hull City. United, who fielded Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Mata in a mouth-watering forward line, were again undone at the back. Adam rifled home a spectacular winner in the second half, after Van Persie cancelled out his deflected opener, to leave United seventh on 40 points, five adrift of Everton in fifth and four behind Spurs. E l s e w h e re , a n A d a m Johnson-inspired Sunderland recorded a thumping 3-0 win

Southampton dished out more misery for Fulham who dropped to the foot of the table after a 3-0 defeat at Craven Cottage while Cardiff City are

second from bottom following a 2-1 win over Norwich City. United had Rooney back from injury to make his first start since New Year’s Day, but their attacking talents came up against one of the game’s great levellers. A howling gale made Stoke a hostile environment for their heralded visitors and after an untidy start, the hosts took the lead with a scruffy goal seven minutes before the break. Adam blasted a freekick from distance that hit Michael Carrick on the edge of the area and flew into the net with United keeper David De Gea wrong-footed. Van Persie scored for the second game in succession after 47 minutes to draw them level, steering a tidy finish into the far corner after being picked out by Mata. Yet the expected comeback victory that United fans became used to seeing under former boss Alex Ferguson failed to materialise and five minutes after the equaliser, Adam thundered a terrific shot into the top corner. Ferguson’s successor David Moyes admitted he is at a loss to explain why they are failing to pick up points. “I don’t know what we have to do to win,” he told the BBC. “I thought we were extremely unlucky. We played well in difficult conditions but

we have lost to one wicked deflection and one worldy. “But we should have been out of sight with the amount of opportunities we had today and we only have ourselves to blame.” RESILIENT OPPONENTS Everton had to pick themselves off the floor after their 4-0 derby thrashing at city rivals Liverpool, and looked in danger of suffering another morale-sapping defeat when Villa took the lead. Against the run of play, Leandro Bacuna slotted past Tim Howard after being played in by Christian Benteke. Despite winning only two of their last six league games, Everton have been resilient opponents throughout the campaign and again dug deep to level when Steven Naismith lashed in after Steven Pienaar’s flick-on. The winner arrived five minutes from time when Kevin Mirallas curled home a free kick from 25 metres. Tottenham were also fresh from a humiliating thrashing, having lost 5-1 to Manchester City in midweek, but unlike Everton there was no instant pick-me-up. H u l l ’s s e v e n m i l l i o n pounds ($11.50 million) January signing Shane Long made an instant impact with the opener after 12 minutes but

Spurs secured a point when Paulinho swivelled and lashed the ball high into the net in the second half. “We never took the chances and the positive to me is that we ground it out. If we don’t win the game we certainly were not going to lose,” Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood said. Sunderland, who were bottom of the table when manager Gus Poyet replaced Paolo Di Canio in October, moved up to 14th with 24 points after winger Johnson scored his sixth goal in four matches either side of a Fabio Borini penalty and a goal from Jack Colback. It was a mixed afternoon for West Ham’s Carroll who resumed his double act with midfielder Kevin Nolan, setting up two goals for his former Newcastle team mate before the England striker was harshly sent off for allegedly swinging an elbow in the 59th minute. Carroll has yet to find his shooting boots since returning from injury but his sheer physical menace proved too much of a handful for Swansea who were bullied into submission by the giant England forward. Carroll’s bright start turned sour when he was adjudged by referee Howard Webb to have elbowed Chico Flores in the face after the pair tangled near the halfway line, but the contact was minimal and manager Sam Allardyce said they would appeal.

Giles a strong candidate to replace Flower - England boss LONDON -(Reuters) - Limited-overs supremo Ashley Giles is a strong candidate to succeed Andy Flower as England’s coach in all formats, cricket board chief Giles Clarke said yesterday. Zimbabwean Flower, who had been in charge since 2009, stepped down on Friday following England’s 5-0 Ashes surrender in Australia and will take up a new role with the national academy. With no Test scheduled until the home series against Sri Lanka in June, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is in no hurry to announce a coach for all formats but former left-arm spinner Giles appears to be one of the favourites for the job. “We would agree he is a strong candidate,” Clarke told reporters. “He’s a valued employee of the ECB, a man of

Ashley Giles great integrity and ability.” Former captain Michael Vaughan believes South African Gary Kirsten could be the right man to succeed Flower while Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell has thrown his hat in the ring. ECB managing director Paul Downton will oversee the recruitment process, Clarke said. “We don’t play any Test cricket until June so we have quite a break during which time we are focusing on the

World Twenty20 in Bangladesh (next month),” he added. “Ashley is in charge of all that anyway, is in charge of the side in the West Indies and will take charge of the side continuously so that process is pretty clear.” The ECB boss paid tribute to Flower who guided England to three Ashes successes, 2010 World Twenty20 victory and briefly to number one in the ICC Test rankings. “These triumphs identify him as the most successful coach in English cricket history,” Clarke said.

Short-ball test will continue for India batsmen - Hesson

By Abhishek Purohit in Wellington

NEW Zealand coach Mike Hesson warned that his side will not hesitate to use the short ball against the India batsmen in the Tests. The tactic worked effectively in the 4-0 series win in the ODIs, where many of India’s batsmen repeatedly fell trying to hit bouncers. “Yeah, [if] conditions allow, absolutely,” Hesson said. “It is the ability to push guys back and then bowl their natural length [to set the batsman up], the ability to do that and obviously presenting the seam so that we can find the outside edge. That is the sort of formula that we have had for a while. I think we showed that at the

Basin Reserve the last time we played, and the way we forced West Indies back and took them out, that is something we will look to continue.” Before the tour began, Hesson had said he would like to see green, seaming pitches being prepared. But as the Tests draw closer, he tempered his demand, saying the strategy could be double-edged. “I don’t think Eden Park ever looks green to be fair,” Hesson said after the New Zealand Test squad was announced last week. “The drop-ins don’t look green, sometimes they do more than I think. I talk with New Zealand Cricket. I don’t ring groundsmen and give orders. That is not the way we operate. NZC are very clear

about the type of surface we would like but with that comes risk as well as we know how good the Indian seamers are.” New Zealand’s middle-order was prolific in the one-dayers and their Test line-up will also feature many of the same players. Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor, who put on three century partnerships in five matches, along with Brendon McCullum and Corey Anderson will look to draw on the knowledge gained over the past fortnight going into the first Test on February 6. “We had a good look at the Indian seam attack. Clearly the conditions will be a little different, especially in the first innings of the game,” Hesson said. “The Indian seamers are

good bowlers, especially if there is a little bit in the wicket. We have got to prepare accordingly, obviously quick change in format so we need to make that shift. Our openers are coming in off some form domestically, so hopefully they can set the tone for us.” Hesson said that even though the formats were different, New Zealand would approach the Tests with belief on the back of what they had just achieved in the ODIs. “There will definitely be some confidence within the group that we can compete with these guys and they are a good side. But we know it is a different format. A few new faces but we will certainly take some confidence into the series.” (ESPN Cricinfo)

Pakistan batsman Umar held over alleged assault (REUTERS) - Pakistan Test batsman Umar Akmal has been detained by police for questioning after being accused of assaulting a police warden in his hometown of Lahore. The case has been registered at the Gulberg police station in whose jurisdiction the alleged incident happened yesterday. “He violated a traffic signal and when he was stopped by the traffic warden he misbehaved with him, got abusive and also tore his shirt,” senior police official Tariq Aziz told reporters yesterday. Aziz said physically assaulting and tearing the shirt of a police officer was a serious violation. “He is presently detained at the police station for questioning,” he added. However, Umar, 23, denied the charges and told reporters that the traffic warden had slapped him and abused him over a minor issue. “His behaviour was inappropriate to say the least. I came to the police station to register a complaint and instead they have detained

Umar Akmal

me,” he added. Umar, who has appeared in 16 tests, 89 one day internationals and 52 Twenty 20 matches, is regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in Pakistan cricket. The younger brother of Test players Kamran and Adnan Akmal, Umar claimed the incident was captured on CCTV cameras at the traffic signal and the footage will make it clear who was the aggrieved and guilty parties. Umar’s family also blamed the police for stopping him from applying for bail yesterday as the court had closed for the day by the time he was taken there for the hearing. “The police on purpose delayed taking him to the magistrate so we couldn’t get bail for him now he might have to spend the night in lockup,” his father Muhammad Akmal said. Muhammad said the three charges registered against his son carried jail sentences of three months to two years and a fine.

Record cricket crowds flock to see Australia’s summer of success over England ENGLAND’S cricket agony is almost over - but Australian cricket fans have certainly enjoyed its descent to levels of mediocrity rarely seen from any touring team, rocking up in record numbers.

Has Alvin Johnson’s wishes for Sarwan to come big come true or is it too early to call? Asks Calvin Roberts in Trinidad (Compliments of Ansa McAl, Regal Stationery, Wartsilla, Romaine Car Wash, F&H Printing, Berbice River Bridge and GT&T “I WOULD just hope that Sarwan can come to the party. I think this tournament would be a decisive one for Ramnaresh Sarwan and the West Indies still need Sarwan, but Sarwan needs to be the Sarwan we know of old. His commitment to date has been good and we are looking forward for him to do well.” Those were the words of Malta Supreme Guyana team manager Alvin Johnson, in the early days of the team’s encampment and preparation period for the West Indies Cricket Board/NAGICO Super50 tournament which is presently being played in Trinidad and Tobago. Asked to comment on Alvin Johnson’s statement during a net session at the Everest Cricket Club ground, the 33 year- old Ramnaresh Sarwan, who has to date played 215 first class matches where he has scored 13, 221 runs at an average of 39.11 with 33 tons said, “As long as I am playing I still think I have a chance of representing the West Indies and the people of this country and that is my ultimate goal.” Represent he did and in fine style too, as the former Guyana and West Indies skipper rolled back the years when he earned the tag of ‘World’s Best Finisher’, by blasting an authoritative and unbeaten 62 balls 89 against Ireland in Guyana’s mammoth 301 for 3, an innings that was

decorated with 10 fours and four sixes. That innings was preceded by a foundation of 129 for the first wicket between Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Trevon Griffith, who both made half centuries, while skipper Christopher Barnwell and Leon Johnson also chipped in with robust innings of their own. “Of course we had a wonderful start from Shiv and young Griffith, so it was just a matter of trying to continue with the momentum, even though we did not have the kind of Power Play that we wanted, as we lost Shiv during that period” said Sarwan in an invited comment after picking up the Man- of- theMatch award. He added, “Barnwell and myself gained some momentum coming out of the Power Play and we were able to ignite, while young Leon Johnson came to the wicket when Barnwell was dismissed and played pretty well for the team.” Kevin O’Brien, who ended with 3 for 56, removed Chanderpaul with his final delivery of the first over in the second Power Play that Sarwan referred to, only for Sarwan and Barnwell to add 65 for the third wicket from 6 overs, at a strike rate of 10.50 runs per over. When Barnwell was dismissed in the 44th over-43.3 overs to be exact,  Sarwan and Leon Johnson joined forces to add 76 valuable runs from the remaining 6.3 overs, pushing Malta Supreme Guyana to their eventual total, which in itself is the highest Regional List A score at the Queen’s Park Oval. That total surpassed Jamaica’s 282 for 5 made against defending champions, and Guy-

Guyana’s 301, Sarwan said that while the runs scored were done heavily, once the bowlers bowl smart, they would be able to restrict teams. “I don’t think that if you bat first or second it would make much of a difference, but I think that if you put the bowlers under pressure as well and you are able to execute, then that is a major factor as well, taking into consideration the number of fielders who will be allowed out of the circle at one time. I just think it is a matter of trying to execute your game plan and hopefully once you can do it on the day, then you would be able to score,” posited Sarwan. He said the Guyanese, who last claimed a regional List A title in 2005, had a total of 270 in

The Guyana Marathon! Can it be revived? By Clifford Stanley HEADLINES of the Guiana Graphic newspapers dated March 12, 1956 screamed: CLEM FIELDS WINS MARATHON-BEATS ISHMAEL BY 880 YARDS. Written by Sports Journalist Cedric Wiltshire the story continued:                               “Three hours and a second after yesterday’s marathon started it was over . And as predicted Clem Fields of Rose Hall Estate was the winner. Although finishing 880 yards behind, H Ishmael  (Sandbach  Parker ) was considered a good second.

March 12, 1956 continued: It has been described as  the “Fields hinted that he was perfect distance to truly test the hugoing to make the pace a man physiology ; to test the amount blistering one.

Naturally the crowd was thickest at the Seawall Bandstand where there was a deafening roar as Fields approached – a solitary figure. It was not very long after that Ishmael was spotted and he too was given a big ovation.” From the tone of the report it can be concluded that the late 1950s were arguably the glory days of the marathon race in Guyana. Historically, the marathon race is based on the legend of Pheidippides, a hero of Ancient Greece. The story is that in the year 490 B.C., an invading Persian Army landed on the plains of Marathon and

Malta Supreme Guyana enjoyed a rest day yesterday, but will be at the National Cricket Centre in Couva from 0:900hrs today, while tomorrow they return to the outdoor facility at the Queen’s Park Oval at the same time for another session, ahead of their game against Windward Islands on Tuesday. We don’t know if it is early days to call on Alvin Johnson’s wishes, for only time will tell, but for now Sarwan has shown he is hungry for runs and intends to do well for Guyana.

CCC demolishes Leewards by 160 runs

PORT- of- Spain, Trinidad - The Combined Campuses and Colleges got their 2014 NAGICO Super50 tournament off to a rollicking start, condemning the Leeward Islands to a heavy 160 run defeat at the Queen’s Park Oval last night. CCC posted a competitive 240 all out from their 50 overs after winning the toss and electing to bat. There were good partnerships right through the innings. Anthony Alleyne top scored for the College students with 54 while there were also valuable contributions down the CCC batting order. Garvin Tonge and Anthony Martin both took three wickets each for the Leewards. In response, the Leeward Islands were blown away by the CCC pacers. Kesrick Williams sent Kieran Powell back to the pavilion on the first ball, then Kyle Mayers supported well from the other end. Raymon Reifer bowled with pace and aggression and contributed much to the collapse of the Leeward Islands. The chase never got going, and the result look inevitable a few overs into the chase.
