President Ramotar declares open multi-million-dollar hospice for abused children By Vanessa Narine

The newly-commissioned Bal Nivas centre

PRESIDENT Donald Ramotar yesterday commissioned the multi-million-dollar Bal Nivas centre for children who have been victims of abuse in Ankerville, Corentyne, Berbice. Addressing the hundreds who attended the event, he stressed that the social challenges Guyana faces in relation to domestic violence and child abuse demand a multi-faceted approach. The President referred to Government’s efforts to create an

atmosphere where domestic violence and child abuse are not tolerated, but are spoken against. In this regard, efforts include passage of new legislation and investment in the social sector. The President said that when domestic violence and child abuse are eliminated, Guyana would have moved a far way and would have advanced in the right direction to ensure the protection of vulnerable groups. He also congratulated the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha (GHDS) and its supporters for being able to turn the vision of the Bal Nivas Centre into a reality, and noted that the centre would benefit all Guyanese.

RESPONDING TO A NEED President of the GHDS, Dr. Vindhya Persaud, speaking at the commissioning ceremony yesterday, pointed out that the Bal Nivas centre responds to a need that evidences a real problem. “It is a sad day when we need this type of facility, but the reality is not one we are blind to,” she said, making clear the importance for vulnerable groups to have safety and security.

According to her, the facility is the result of a vision in 2009, and the support of its many stakeholders is greatly appreciated. She proffered the Sabha’s appreciation to Bollywood playback singer Sonu Nigam, whose sold-out concerts assisted the Sabha in raising funds for the centre’s construction. Sonu Nigam was present at the opening ceremony. Dr Persaud, who stressed that the GHDS is committed to serving the people of Guyana, called on Berbicians to take ownership of the facility in order to ensure that it can continue to serve those in need for many years to come. The newly-opened hospice, which will house 60 persons at a time, will target children, particularly those with single parents in the surrounding communities. In January 2012, the GHDS signed the building contract with Kascon Engineering Service of Berbice, and the Government of Guyana donated the land for its construction. In 2012 also, President Donald Ramotar and leading Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam unveiled the design of the building; and construction of Bal Nivas began in February

In face of present-day challenges…

President says let the ‘heritage’ of struggle inspire action today By Vanessa Narine PRESIDENT Donald Ramotar has underscored the rich heritage of Indians in Guyana, and has called for that heritage of struggle against Indentureship and colonialism to be the nation’s inspiration in the face of present-day challenges. Yesterday, on occasion of the 176th anniversary of Indian arrival in Guyana, the President lamented the fact that several major transformative projects intended by his Government to improve the lives of Guyanese citizens have been affected by the Parliamentary Opposition’s vote in the National Assembly during the 2014 Budget review. He cited as an example the Amaila Falls Hydropower Project (AFHP), funding for which has been denied by the opposition in Parliament. Addressing hundreds of Guyanese at the opening of the BalNivas children’s home in Ankerville, Corentyne, Region Six (East Berbice/Corentyne), he said the 2014 Appropriation Act which was passed in the National Assembly on April 16 was assented to by Acting President Samuel Hinds last Tuesday evening in the prescribed time. However, the Act reflects $37.4B in cuts to the $220B budget that was presented by Finance Minister Dr. Ashni Singh. The implementation of many programmes and functioning of many entities, including the Office of the President, have been affected by the Budget cuts, with some allocations being reduced to zero. Under the allocation for the Office of the President, the cuts include: $245M for the Presidential Guard services; $95M for the provision of developmental and humanitarian aid, among other initiatives; $10M for the Office of the First Lady; $73.5M for the Guyana Energy Agency; $119M for the Guyana Office for Investment (Go-Invest); $122M for the Institute of Applied Science and Technology (IAST); $17M for the Integrity Commission; and $28.5M for the Office of the Commissioner of Information. The other cuts include $18.5B for the LCDS initiatives; $450M for loans for University of Guyana students; $725M for the poverty alleviation programme; $7M for the different rights commissions; $795M for the Basic Needs Trust Fund; and $4M for support to non-governmental organisations and the private sector. Also on the chopping block were: the Specialty Hospital – $910M; upgrading of regional and district hospitals, including Port Kaituma, Kwakwani, Linden, Bartica, Eye Surgery Operating Room at Linden etc. – $360M; ambulances, ATVs and boats – $42M; surgical equipment and instruments – $32M; the Amerindian Development Fund – $1.1B; other

Amerindian programmes, such as ATVs, tractors etc. – $40M; the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) modernization project – $6.6B; Civil Aviation – $50M; and hinterland airstrips – $185M. WE WILL HAVE HYDRO Despite the uphill battle that his Government faces in light of the massive budget cuts, the President maintained that the fight is not over. “We will have hydro!” he said. According to him, the Amalia Falls Hydro Power (AFHP) Project is one “every Guyanese” can benefit from. President Ramotar stressed that Guyana can save $9B in subsidized electricity cost and on the $40B fuel bill, particularly since the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) could buy electricity from the hydro-power set-up for a mere US 11 cents, compared to its production cost of US 19 cents and US20 cents per kilowatt hour. These savings, he said, help to make enormous contributions to infrastructural development, particularly needed in Guyana’s hinterland, to aid and accelerate economic progress. In the 2014 Budget considerations, both opposition parties

The facility will spearhead many programmes in order to educate communities throughout the country about domestic violence and parenting. Rehabilitation and counselling programmes will also be held to ensure that victims are ready to be placed in a safe environment. One wing of the building was designated for the counselling centre and a skills-training facility. These are mainly to benefit women in the community who may be suffering at the hands of their partners. The intention is to re-integrate these individuals into the community and proper families after a period of time at the shelter. The administration of the shelter will be handled by the Sabha, in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Services and the Child Protection Agency. Also present at the commissioning of this facility were Prime Minister Samuel Hinds; General Secretary of the ruling party, Mr Clement Rohee; Government ministers, Members of Parliament (MPs), and Executives of the GHDS. supported the allocation of $1.3B for provision of the Amaila access road and related structures under the Ministry of Public Works’ 2014 budgetary allocation; but the $16.8B for the actual project, which was listed under the Ministry of Finance’s 2014 allocation, was disapproved by the parties. The project involves construction of a hydropower plant in the area of west-central Guyana where the Amaila and Kuribrong rivers meet. Electricity produced at the plant would be delivered to Guyana’s capital, Georgetown, and its second largest town, Linden. The AFHP is expected to result in substantial savings to the nation’s coffers, particularly in terms of foreign exchange and the purchase of heavy fuel oil. The potential benefits of a more stable and reliable source of energy via the advance of hydro-electricity has also, last December, been spotlighted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as an area for continued focus. President Ramotar’s position on the matter is that economies must serve the people, not vice versa; and with

‘SSS Tonic’ misadventure...

Lone survivor unaware of fate of family members

By Shirley Thomas

TWELVE-YEAR-OLD Jamal Waterman, one of the Blair family members who had ingested a dangerous substance presumed to be SSS Tonic at their Cocorite Street, East La Penitence home on Sunday morning, yesterday remained under close medical watch in the Pediatric Ward of the Georgetown Public Hospital. When the Chronicle visited late yesterday, he was receiving saline and other medication, and was hooked up to a monitor, but was wide awake, and very much conscious of his environment. The child, however, appeared very pensive and at times dazed. Asked how was he feeling, all he said was, “Better.” Asked about his parents and seven-yearold brother, Jahaquel, who had also ingested the lethal substance, Jamal expressed confidence that they, too, would soon be better, and indicated that they were “somewhere else” in the hospital compound receiving medical attention. Among his many visitors yesterday was Georgetown Mayor, Mr. Hamilton

ing of feeling unwell, and soon began to vomit and convulse in pain, prompting a decision to take them to the Georgetown Public Hospital. There, the youngest, Jahaquel, along with Blair, Pryce and George succumbed. Police findings are that the SSS Tonic was laced with cocaine, which resulted in the deaths of the family members and that of their best friend, George. Jamal, the lone survivor, was said to have asked his mother for some juice,

Tragedy struck on Sunday morning when 42-yearold Alex Blair and his 36-year-old common-law wife, Simone Pryce, along with their two sons –- Jamal, 12, and seven-year-old Jahaquel -- drank from what appeared to be a bottle of SSS Tonic which, along with other foodstuff, had been destined for the USA, but had been left behind

by the prospective courier, who had been unwilling to facilitate the request to fetch the stuff at the behest of an acquaintance. The children’s parents thought the tonic tasted strange, and invited their neighbour and best friend, Natasha George, to taste it, and proffer an opinion. George concurred with her friends’ opinion after tasting the tonic. Shortly afterwards, the two boys began complain-

which he drank after taking the tonic had made him feel bad. It is surmised that the juice had somewhat neutralised the toxicity of the substance, which resulted in the efforts put in by medical staff at the hospital to save his life being successful. Meanwhile, two persons detained by police on Sunday in connection with preparation of the package destined for New York have since been released. Police are, however, said to be looking for two others.

Guyana’s Attorney-General sends family, country his ‘profound sympathy’ --on the passing of a colleague, and ‘consummate professional’ By Vanessa Narine ATTORNEY-GENERAL (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall, has expressed profound sympathy to the surviving family members and people of Trinidad and Tobago, birthplace of the late Ms Dana Seetahal, who was gunned down, execution style, early Saturday morning in upscale Woodbrook, a suburb of Port-of Spain. The former Senior Counsel was in 2012 appointed to sit on the Linden Commission of Inquiry, set up to investigate the tragedy that took place at Linden in July 2012. Minister Nandlall said in his statement: “I am indeed shocked at the tragic and brutal murder of Dana Seetahal. She was a consummate professional woman, strong and fearless in her professional pursuits. She was a lawyer, an academic and a politician. As an academic, she has made an indelible mark on lives of students





at the Hugh Wooding Law School. Her book, ‘Criminal Practice and Procedure in the Commonwealth Caribbean’, remains the only academic work on that topic in the region. “Her contribution was nothing less than stellar. As a lawyer, she prosecuted several high-profile cases in her homeland. She was a great admirer of our own Doodnauth Singh, SC. I enjoyed a good professional relationship with her.” Nandlall deemed Seetahal’s death a tremendous loss to the legal fraternity, not only in Trinidad and Tobago, but to the entire Caribbean region. According to the Trinidad Express, at about 12.05 a.m., Senior Counsel Dana Seetahal was in her Volkswagen SUV proceeding north along HamiltonHolder Street in Woodbrook when, upon reaching the vicinity of the Woodbrook Youth Facility, two vehicles pulled alongside hers, causing her to come to a stop. One of the vehicles,




a Nissan Wingroad, then drove ahead a short distance and pulled across the road, blocking it. The other vehicle, described as a panel van, pulled alongside Seetahal’s vehicle and the occupants of that vehicle pulled out their firearms and opened fire on her SUV. The two vehicles then sped off and made good their escape. Residents of the area, on hearing the gunshots, contacted the police and emergency health services. But despite their swift response, when they arrived, Senior Counsel Dana Setahal, an Express columnist, was dead - slumped along her driver’s seat. The article added that the first responders notified their seniors, and a party of officers, including ACP Wayne Dick, Senior Superintendent Ishmael David, Acting ASP Williams, Inspector Thomas, Inspector Veronique, Inspector Lawrence and Inspector Rampersad, among others, visited the scene.

Killing of T&T prosecutor could affect trial in murder of prominent businesswoman PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – A former high court judge yesterday said the judge hearing a case in which a prominent businesswoman was kidnapped and murdered, could have “some problems” keeping the jury together following the assassination of the prosecutor, Dana Seetahal on Sunday. Seetahal, a former legislator and magistrate, had been shot and killed after the gunmen who in two vehicles blocked her Volkswagen Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) in Wooodbrook, just on the

outskirts of the capital. The National Security Council (NSC) will meet in an emergency session later on Monday in San Fernando to discuss the matter. National Security Minister Gary Griffith said he already recommend an increase in the National Alert State from green to amber allowing for an increase of the operational preparedness and visibility of all law enforcement agencies. Former high court judge and justice minister Hubert Volney said that the

murder of Seetahal, 58, was designed to drive fear into people involved in the trial for the murder of the businesswoman. “My own view is that while I have no empirical evidence to support it, this assassination was to drive fear into the minds and hearts of those involved in that trial which is ongoing in which Miss Seetahal had a critical role.” Twelve men have been charged with murdering the businesswoman, Vindra Naipaul Coolman, the chief executive officer of

a supermarket, who was abducted from her home in Central Trinidad on December 19, 2006. Her body has never been found, but at the opening of the trial, the prosecution had alleged that her killers had used an electric saw to dismember her body, possibly even while she was still alive. “They cut off her legs up to her belly. They cut off both arms from her shoulders. They cut off her head. They cut up her belly and chest. Her body parts were then placed into black garbage bags for disposal,” Senior

an expected saving of $9B in electricity subsidies, as well as savings on the $40B fuel bill, enormous contributions can be made to infrastructural development, particularly needed in Guyana’s hinterland to aid and accelerate economic progress. On July 18 last year, the combined opposition defeated the Hydro Electric Power (Amendment) Bill. In August, the Government brought the issue back to the National Assembly and received the support of the Alliance For Change (AFC), but A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) voted the bill and motion down. LOOMING THREAT The President also cited delay in enactment of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Amendment Bill as another challenge and looming threat for Guyana. The Parliamentary Special Select Committee currently reviewing the Bill concluded its review of the proposed amendments by the Opposition last Wednesday, and is expected to consider counter-proposals made by the Attorney-General (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall, on behalf of the Government, when it meets again. “I need the support of every one of you to get past this challenge,” the Head of State told the gathering, as he noted that the actions of the combined Opposition are undoubtedly opening Guyana to danger. In an interview with the Guyana Chronicle on Saturday, he

said, “We see by their action that they are opening our country to danger…they are creating a weakness in our legislation by making our country non-compliant. They are fighting a very important measure. I find it extremely disturbing.” “…they have opened our country to serious danger, because this Bill, which is a result of international agreements for countries to have similar legislation to fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism, is why the sanctions are so severe.” The President lamented the fact that the reasoning and explanations on the need for the enactment of the AML/CFT Bill by a high-profile CFATF team which visited Guyana two weeks ago seems to have been ignored. He said, “The CFATF team came into the country and explained to all and sundry the dangers that Guyana faces if we become blacklisted, and how much it can harm Guyana. The fear also is that it will also affect the rest of the Caribbean. “What we are seeing is the Opposition totally disregarding this.” The President questioned who the Opposition is defending by opposing the Bill. Guyana has already been blacklisted regionally by CFATF, and the final deadline for Guyana to ensure compliance with recommendations of the CFATF is May 29. If that deadline passes without enactment of the AML/CFT Bill, Guyana would most likely be recommended to the international body, FATF, for review by the International Cooperation Review Group (ICRG). And if that is done, Guyana could face further sanctions, including being put on the international blacklist.

Counsel Israel Khan told the 12-member jury. Volney said that the presiding judge “is going to have some problems on his hands keeping this jury together to complete this matter. “I can see that in the offing,” he told radio listeners. The trial has since been adjourned to May 12. Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar who has condemned the killing, said she had spoken with Chief Justice Ivor Archie “and we have agreed to meet in order to devote urgent attention to necessary reform in the criminal justice system and

security issues connected there with”. The murder here of the senior attorney follows that of Dr. Wesley Debideen who was gunned down as he sat in his car at a mall in August last year. Debideen, 68, was shot in the head and about the body several times by an assailant who, one witness said, fired several times, walked a few feet away, then turned and went back, emptying several more shots into his victim. The gunman remains at large. Police had described Debideen’s death as “a clear hit”.

Ruling party elects new general secretary KINGSTON, Jamaica, (CMC) – Paul Burke 61, has been elected general secretary of the ruling People’s National party (PNP) replacing National Security Minister Peter Bunting, who did not seek re-election to the post. Burke, a veteran PNP activist, was elected unopposed at the party’s National Executive Council meeting on Sunday.

Media reports Monday said that Bunting is likely to throw his hat into the ring for one of the four vicepresidential position or that of chairman. PNP chairman Robert Pickersgill is likely to retire before the next annual conference scheduled for September. Burke is regarded as a close ally of Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller.

Guyana’s Attorney-General ... From page 4` Crime scene investigators recovered several 5.62 shells at the scene. The Trinidad Express reported also that police are currently working on three main theories as a result of this killing. The first and most prominent is that, because of the nature of the incident, it was a “hit” arising out of the senior counsel’s involvement in the Vindra Naipaul-Coolman murder trial. The second theory is that, based on certain

Tuesday, May 06, 2014 - 09:00 information the police received, her killing may have been orchestrated by known criminal elements; and investigators are expected to speak to individuals who are currently in custody as well as who are under surveillance in areas such as Diego Martin and Central Trinidad, to see if there are any further leads. The third theory is that she was on her way home after spending some time at a popular members club,

and there was a possibility that the incident could be linked to her actions at the business place. Trinidad and Tobago’s Commissioner of Police, Stephen Williams, commenting on the brutal murder, said, “It’s shocking. Crime is a concern; especially violent crime. It’s a shocking incident; one you least expect. I had a conversation with her at around 12.45 pm on Saturday, and everything was fine.

“We need to work as a country together.” Williams assured that the incident would be thoroughly investigated, and that his officers are on the scene doing a basic investigation. A $1 million reward has since been offered by Crime Stoppers for information leading to the arrest and successful conviction of those involved in the murder of this eminent attorney.

FITUG’s on CLC Board for greater government financing

The culture of respect

INDIAN singing sensation, Sonu Nigam is an internationally-acclaimed superstar, feted and honoured by heads-of-state and entrepreneurial giants, and adored by the masses worldwide. Yet, on a public stage at the Guyana National Stadium last evening, during his Guyana leg of his world tour, “Klose to my Soul,” he reverently bent to touch his father’s feet, and proclaim to the world his love and respect for the man whom he acclaims as his educator (Guru), his mentor, the umbrella over his head – his protector; a man he describes as honourable and steadfast to his ideals. This is the culture all our peoples brought to this homeland of ours: Respect for elders. But, sadly, that culture has been eroded, to the extent that today, even respect for parents and teachers is practically non-existent. But Sonu speaks of a father who simultaneously nurtured his growth and talent, and shaped his personality by giving him an example of rectitude and high values to emulate; so that today that son could honour and respect him, and recognize him on a public stage as being an honourable person who exemplifies the standards he has inculcated into his son. The evolutionary process of growth and development of a child so that he/she can evolve into a decent human being and achieve his/her full potential is dependent on many factors, but the main contributory element to character-shaping is the input into a child’s life by his/ her primary caregivers, who are the parents/guardians and teachers. But as parents/guardians pursue their own selfish pleasures, most often the children are neglected. Also most teachers no longer see this profession as a vocation, but merely a time-filling exercise until they can achieve their own goals. Many teachers engage in the most heinous acts – such as gossiping with their charges; or even sleeping with them, to the extent that they father children with schoolgirls. Adolescence is an emotionally volatile transitory point in a child’s life, where tolerance and wise guidance are necessary for the crossover into mature, responsible adulthood; so most likely schoolgirls fall willing preys to predatory male teachers. But how do these teachers get away without the harshest of sanctions imposed on them, despite the legislation enacted to protect minors from such situations? Late Pandit Reepu Daman Persaud had conceptualized and initiated many societal-changing projects to elevate and provide for social and cultural norms and needs. One of those projects is a shelter for abused children – a dream not left incomplete by his passing, because he left a daughter created in his mould, Dr. Vindhya Persaud, and a family in the organization that he founded – The Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha -- to concretize that dream, which has fructified within a year of his death. “Bal Nivas” will shelter abused children, but what of the abusers of those children? While Sonu Nigam can describe his father as the umbrella over his head, there are so many instances when the parent is the pit in which the lives of their children fall. The best gift a parent can give a child is a stable home environment, with both parents contributing to that child’s upbringing and wellbeing. But how sad is the reality, because most often the abusers are the per-

CHANGE is indeed inevitable, and one must veer with it. I know a few trade unionists will be harsh on me for my views, but we advocate that they need to adjust their attitudes, their paternalism, their exploitation, and a host of other traditional things we say about legislators and employers. We say they must change because times are changing. There are some trade unionists who also have entrenched vested interests in the traditional system, and it is indeed difficult for anyone to give up his/her vested interests. Nevertheless, it has to be done, and so I say that if it is going to be done, then do not let someone do it for you; carve the road out yourself, consistent with the realities of change. The first part deals very briefly with the establishment of the College on 1st May, 1965, and of its operation as an integral part of the Trades Union Council of Guyana, to provide Trade Union Education and training at all levels of trade union organization and management. But as the work of the Institute expanded, it became evident that, for trade union education and training to be meaningful, the college has to be broadened and coherently structured. The second part is a summary analysis of the future prospects of the institution, and justification for greater government financing. The Trades Union Council decided, in 1967, to change the structure and broaden the administration of the Institute by inviting representatives of the Government of Guyana, the University of Guyana, and the general public. This decision of the Council was influenced by its awareness of the expanding role and increasing responsibilities which the Trades Unions in Guyana would have to take on. “The need for a Labour College arises out of the expanded role and responsibility of Trade Unions in Guyana”. The third part, according to the Critchlow Labour College, is Private Company registered on 12th June, 1968 under “The Companies Ordinance, Chapter 328” of the Laws of Guyana. The former Honourable Minister of Labour, Winslow Carrington, expressed some concern about the extent of deficit as shown in the College’s 1972 financial report, and implied that the deficit suggested a need for greater financial control. The Board of Governors would wish to assure the Minister that their spending since 1969 has been done with utmost consideration to achieve maximum efficiency. The deficit is a result of bad spending, but finance, though important to the growth of the institution, is not the only problem; uncertainty of the Board of Governors, their attitude and policy towards the Collage are other matters of grave concern. I hold the view that the Critchlow Labour College, along with other trade unions, can and must play a major role in the development of Guyana. It is this view that influenced our development in the past, and will continue to guide us into the future as we continue to develop. The immediate priorities of Labour Education in Guyana, Consideration is given to: 1. The modern concept of the role of the Trade Union. 2. The current problems of the Trade Union. 3. Possible solutions. 4. The need to convince Trade Union Leaders of the necessity for Labour Education. 5. The need to foster a consciousness of the importance and value of the Trade Union Movement as a socio-economic machinery committed not only to the improvement of its particular members, but also to national development. 6. The need to develop among rank and file members an understanding of the reasons and importance of their active interest and participation in day-to-day activities of their Union. 7. The need to develop among Trade Union Officers and sons who should be their protectors; and abuse takes many forms, not necessarily kicks and blows and sexual/incestuous intercourses, but oftentimes the verbal abuse and outright neglect can be just as devastating to the fragile psyche of a child as is fighting in front of the children. Lack of discipline and inadequate parental supervision -- such as leaving children for hours to entertain themselves in front of a television or a game console because parents are too busy with their pursuits to find time to interact with those children -- can also constitute abuse/ neglect. Yesteryear there were no mod cons and other distractions to the pursuit of an education, and although life offered few luxuries and everything had to be achieved through superlative but collective effort, the family spent more time together; which is hardly the case in modern times. Many parents, people in authority, elders and teachers lament the uncaring and disrespectful attitudes of the modern generation without considering that, conscious-

rank and file members a working knowledge of modern methods of administration and financial management. 8. The need to give to workers knowledge of the attributes and personal qualities necessary for successful Trade Union leadership. 9. The need to imbue into Trade Union Leaders the importance of their attitude in influencing not only the attitude of management, but also the attitudes of their members in their day-to-day relations. 10. The need to provide the Trade Union Leader with a certain measure of technical knowledge, necessary to facilitate his or her dealings with management personnel and rank and file members: Human Relations, Industrial Psychology, Elementary Economics and Administration. 11. The need to provide Trade Union Leaders with a knowledge and awareness of the social, economic and political factors affecting the lives of the workers, and the responsibility of the Trade Union to influence these factors. 12. The need for training Trade Union personnel as Labour Educators, since Labour Educators is a special branch of Adult Education, necessitating specialized training in the use of material, techniques, methods and audio–visual aids. Identify the various needs for Caribbean text books on Trade Unionism. Basic facts, simply and attractively presented in a manner to encourage the rank and file worker to read, for example: 1. Why have a Trade Union? 2. How is a Trade Union Organized? 3. Trade Union and Money 4. Ten Questions and Answers on trade Union 5. What have Trade Unions done for Society? 6. What can a Trade Union do for Me? 7. Who built Caribbean Trade Unionism, and how did they do it? 8. The Worker and Law. 9. The Union and its Members. Material compiled and designed for use of the Labour Educators, including not only relevant subjects for teaching, but also indicating methods and techniques of presentation, for example: 1. Organization and Management of trade Unions. 2. Labour Economics in the Caribbean. 3. Administration of Trade Union Finance. 4. History and Development of Trade Unions in the Caribbean. 5. Industrial Legislation in the Caribbean. 6. Trade Unions and Economic Development in the Caribbean. 7. Trade Unions and Politics in the Caribbean. 8. Collective Bargaining in the Caribbean. 9. Security of Trade Union Employees in the Caribbean. The role of Government in promoting labour education in Guyana: The Government should allot time on radio and television and provide a budget for labour education, and where a national body is, funds should be made available to that body. There used to be a radio programme called “Voice of Labour”, aired every Saturday on labour issues and challenges faced by labour. Sherwood Clarke General President Clerical & Commercial Workers’ Union ly or unconsciously, they may have contributed to the downward spiral of societal ethics in general (by street protests, back-balling, alcohol consumption and out-ofcontrol behaviours, for instance), and the youth population in particular. However, addressing the critically destructive behaviour of many of the younger generation is an imperative if we are to halt the moral decay in the fabric of society, which is currently driving a crime wave beyond controllable levels. So that, rather than a Blackie London or a “Fineman”, we can instead produce more young people in the mould of a Sonu Nigam. Sonu Nigam is a superstar, not because he is a phenomenal, world-acclaimed artiste, which he is; not because he is feted and honoured worldwide for his sensational talent, which he is; not because he is of the mould in looks and class of a superstar, which he is; but Sonu Nigam is a superstar because, despite achieving all these things, he can humbly bend and touch his father’s feet on a public stage with reverence and respect.

At Press Freedom reception...


US Embassy honours 10 local journalists

By Vanessa Narine

THE world marked the observance of World Press Freedom Day on Saturday and at a reception Friday evening, the United States Embassy recognised the efforts of 10 journalists as well as editors of local media houses. United States Ambassador to Guyana, Brent Hardt, in his remarks at the event, noted that the job of journalists is a tough one. He said, “The fact is you all have a tough job; you have to try to pry information from people who may not want the information out, or you have to sift through information put forward quite eagerly, but whose primary purpose may be to distract or divert your focus. And at the end of the day, you have to tell a story; a rough draft of history that people will find interesting and worthwhile to read.” Noting that journalism, despite its many challenges, can also be rewarding, Hardt said: “In Guyana's newspapers and television this past year, we have seen many examples of journalists who have brought to public attention stories that needed to be told; stories of young girls enduring the slavery of trafficking in persons in remote mining areas, and being rescued by courageous Guyanese women, only to find inadequate support and law enforcement follow-through after their rescue; or stories of Guyanese members of the LGBT community facing violent assaults or other forms of discrimination; or stories that make comprehensible to people complex issues of money laundering or budget debates; or stories that highlight the decay in local communities in urgent need of effective, elected local governance. “That Guyana's media is able to report on these and many other stories is why ‘Reporters Without Borders’ ranked Guyana a respectable 67th worldwide out of 180 countries in its 2014 Press Freedom Index, a slight improvement from last year.” PREPARATION and PERSISTENCE On that note, Hardt

charged journalists to follow the principles of preparation and persistence.“Be prepared,” he said. “Always be reading, listening, and watching. See what other media sources are saying, writing, and thinking. Be critical in your appraisal. Notice and analyze what makes a story or feature compelling to read. You need to keep knocking - politely - on dozens and dozens of doors until the right door opens.”

TRAINING The US Ambassador also underscored the importance of training, relative to media standards and stressed the embassy’s commitment to supporting local journalists in this regard. He said, “For the media to play its vital role in a democracy, it must be well trained and hold itself to the highest professional standards. Press freedom is not just an abstract policy, but a very practical skill that needs to be taught, nurtured and promoted. The Embassy has been pleased over many years to be able to contribute to media training in Guyana, and we welcome the support we have received from editors and the enthusiastic participation of reporters. Recently, Managing Director of Demerara Waves, Dennis Chabrol, participated in the State Department’s prestigious International Visitor Leadership Programme, joining the likes of Speaker of the House Raphael Trotman, Minister Robert Persaud, Alliance For Change (AFC) Leader Khemraj Ramjattan, Justice Roxanne George, and Gordon Moseley as IVLP alumni. His programme focused on new media and social networking tools and how new media can be used to promote transparency and accountability. Additionally, Hardt announced the Embassy’s plan to host media workshops on May 16 and 17 for entry level reporters and communications students. “These workshops will address challenges in journalism, women in media, journalistic integrity, and sustainability of journalism. We will pick up where we left off from last year’s

The US Ambassador noted that there are positive signs for Guyana's development, in terms of press freedom, but there is more that can be done to protect and expand freedom of the press and the free exchange of ideas and perspectives it makes possible. World Press Freedom Day is observed annually on 3rd May to remind countries and people all around the world, that freedom of the press and freedom of speech and expression are fundamental human rights. This day is often held to remember many journalists who have died or faced jail in order to bring news to the public. The World Press Freedom Day was established by the General Assembly of the United Nations in December 1993 as an outgrowth of the 'Windhoek Declaration' adopted in 1991 in Namibia for promoting independent and pluralistic African Press. The World Press Freedom Day is celebrated on 3rd May, the date on which the Windhoek Declaration was adopted, which emphasized the need of a free press for developing and maintaining democracy and for economic development. Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights (considered as an important stepping stone to the freedom of press) states that everyone “has the right to freedom of opinion and expression, this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to see, receive and impart information and ideas through

At Ron Webster’s Thanksgiving Service...

Finance Minister relives the pain of losing a friend - a man he held in high esteem for his ‘inimitable qualities’

By Shirley Thomas MINISTER of Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh, has described the late Ronald Webster, former Chairman of the Private Sector Commission, as a patriot and a most able and devoted servant of the land of his birth. Dr. Singh, in a tribute in honour of Webster at a Thanksgiving Service at Bethel Gospel Hall last Saturday, declared: “He displayed the finest qualities of what we need most as a nation in Guyanese citizenship: The willingness to work hard; the ability to be innovative; the appreciation that little is achieved without effort expended; the willingness to accept and discharge responsibility; the sophistry to communicate effectively with all and sundry irrespective of rank and status.” These were among the inimitable qualities possessed by Mr. Ronald Webster, “a man who demonstrated boldness to take a position and defend it, even in the face of criticism and opposition; the strength to continue smiling; who stayed cheerful and remained optimistic, both in demeanour and in conviction, even when the circumstances appeared most unhelpful … Always a man of conviction, never a man to shy away from awkward situations, or to fail to speak his mind, but equally, never a man to offend or display animosity towards even his most virulent of opponents.” “Ron Webster had all these qualities and more. Small wonder, then, that he accomplished as much as he did in the years that he spent on this earthly abode,” the Finance Minister declared. Mr. Ronald Daniel Webster died on April 27, 2014, having lost the battle to cancer. He was 72. The Finance Minister, at the Thanksgiving Service, had the tri-fold task of offering tributes on his own behalf and on behalf of President Donald Ramotar and Prime Minister Samuel Hinds, who were both unable to attend. Mr. Hinds, as the service proceeded, was en route to Jamaica to attend the funeral of the late Caribbean academician, Professor Norman Girvan. In his opening remarks, Dr. Singh said, “Permit me, first

‘He displayed the finest qualities of what we need most as a nation in Guyanese citizenship: The willingness to work hard; the ability to be innovative; the appreciation that little is achieved without effort expended; the willingness to accept and discharge responsibility; the sophistry to communicate effectively with all and sundry, irrespective of rank and status’ of all to begin by discharging the important responsibility of reading the following words on behalf of the Honourable Prime Minister, Samuel Hinds in his capacity as a longstanding friend and colleague of the late Ronald Daniel Webster: “It is with a sense of great sadness and loss that my wife and I extend sincerest condolences to the wife and children and other relatives of Ron Webster, and to his workmates of the Caribbean Containers Inc. (CCI) family. “Ron and I got to know each other from about 1955, during our high school days at Queen’s College, where he was a year or two ahead of me. He first worked at the then ALCAN-owned bauxite operations, DEMBA, at Mackenzie (now Linden), but by the time that I began working there, he had already moved on to Bookers.

Minister of Finance, Dr. Ashni Singh as he paid tributes at the Thanksgiving Service for the late Ronald Webster at Bethel Gospel Hall on Camp Street (Photo by Sonell Nelson) “We worked closely with each other after I came into Government office. Ron, with his early background in bauxite and subsequent experience at Bookers and the private sector, was recognized to be an asset on the Boards of the bauxite companies. He was easy to work with, always seeking to keep things moving while avoiding any antagonisms, important qualities as we sought to refashion our extremely sensitive bauxite operations in order to end losses and to re-privatize them. Ron, at his death, was Chairman of the Kwakwani Utilities Inc. “Ron had also been Chairman of the Board of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), from about 2004 to 2010, a period of steady growth of our small and medium scale Guyanese miners. “When Ron told me of his health problems, it was in a matter-of-fact manner, rather stoic, bravely facing up to what he was to meet. I think of the line, ‘Ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for you and me.’ “Farewell, my friend! Too soon, too soon, our generation is falling away!” Having delivered the condolences of the Hon. Prime Minister, Dr. Singh proceeded to extend condolences on his own behalf, and on behalf of President Donald Ramotar and the entire Government of Guyana, to the immediate family of the deceased Ronald Daniel Webster, Mrs. Webster, to his children and grandchildren. Also included were Mr. Webster’s vast sphere of friends, professional colleagues, and associates, all of whom were plunged into deep sorrow at the passing of this faithful and fervent son of Guyana, Dr. Singh said. He then went on to say that while much is known and has been said about Webster’s accomplishments and service in the private sector, it is perhaps less known that Ron also served

in many public sector capacities. Highlighting some of these positions held by Webster, Dr Singh said: * He was Chief Executive Officer of the Seals and Packaging Industries Limited when that company was still in the public sector; * He worked with Government in salvaging the company’s operations - Seals and Packaging Industries Ltd (SAPIL) and eventually privatized it. That company was subsequently renamed Caribbean Containers Inc. He said Webster was again to play an influential role in restructuring it to return its finances to viability and sustainability, and secure what can safely be described as one of Guyana’s privatization successes. * For a number of years he served as Chairman of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission and expended considerable effort on the matters of the day faced by the GGMC, especially in light of the growing role and importance of the mining sector in our country. * Webster was also Chairman of Kwakwani Utilities Incorporated (KUI), the provider of electricity to the towns of Kwakwani and neighbouring areas, a position he held up to the time of his passing. * He served as Chairman of the Bauxite Industry Development Company Limited, the national holding company for bauxite investments, for a number of years until its winding up about a decade ago. In this latter capacity, Dr. Singh stressed: “Ron Webster was a key participant in the restructuring and privatization of that company’s subsidiaries, the Linden

Sukhai berates Opposition over Amerindian Development Budget cuts By Ravin Singh MINISTER of Amerindian Affairs, Pauline Sukhai, last Friday at a press conference highlighted the views of the Amerindian population who prompted her to publicly declare their disapproval towards the devastating $1.1B cut to the 2014 budgetary allocations towards the Amerindian Development Fund. The Amerindian Development Fund is divided into two sections with one under the purview of the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs, which furnishes the financing of Community Support Officers, cultural projects, Presidential Grants, eco-tourism, etc. The other section of the Amerindian Development Fund, however, falls under the Ministry of Finance which is responsible for channeling funds under the Low Carbon Development Strategy. Sukhai told the media that the Ministry’s undertaking of holding meetings in nine Amerindian communities to discuss what Budget 2014 holds for the Amerindian population revealed disappointment from over 6,000 persons. “It’s a hard hit and the indigenous people are in full condemnation of the cuts. The comments from the meetings are very telling,” Sukhai noted. She said that the Amerindians saw the actions by the Opposition to cut the budget, as unnecessary and explained that it will stifle development in Amerindian Villages. Leader of the opposition, David Granger, last month explained that the budget was voted against in order to make sure that the Youth Apprenticeship and Entrepreneurial Programme (YAEP) is put on a proper footing. He said further,

that after careful examination of the 2014 Budget, he concluded that it has the potential to dangerously divide the country into two nations, one poor and one rich. Similar sentiments were echoed by A Partnership for National Unity member and shadow Minister of Local Government, Ronald Bulkan, who said that it was voted down because APNU was reliably informed that the money was being used to pollute and politicize the Amerindian communities. BASELESS ASSUMPTIONS However, Sukhai refuted the “baseless” speculative assumptions which were laid out by the Opposition and stressed the importance for development in these areas. The Community Development Projects (CDP) which are Amerindian projects being executed by the Ministry of Amerindian Affairs have seen completion of 27 of the 187 projects. The remaining

160 projects were expected to be disbursed under the 2014 Budget but as a result of the cuts by the Opposition, Sukhai revealed that all developmental activities which were to be pursued by the Ministry have now been halted as there is a lack of funding for their execution. The Minister also released statements to the media from Amerindian leaders and community members who blatantly denounced the actions of the opposition, positing that their actions were merely politically schemed to treat the Amerindians as third class citizens. Santa Rosa Village Touchau, Basil Cornelius, in a statement said: “We are in full condemnation of this budget cut, as leaders of this village we are disgusted at the way the politicians treat us. I think it is time that we ask the House of Parliament to recognize us as the first people and treat us as equal. I am confused as to why the first choice was to disapprove something that we need and that is paltry compared to what the country receives.” Sukhai concluded that: “I personally continue to be worried that the Opposition continues to talk in the media about the disapproval as if the Amerindians are an illiterate bunch of people.” PPP/C Region 9 representative Bryan Allicock recently disclosed that roughly 2,000 Amerindian youths will be out of work due to the voting down of the $1.1 billion Amerindian Minister of Amerindian Affairs, Development Fund.

The plight of Jesse Gibbs ...

Nursing multiple injuries, and facing mounting medical bills - life couldn’t get more complicated for this 25-year-old By Shirley Thomas TWENTY-five year-old motor cyclist, Jesse Gibbs, injured in an accident with a car at Little Diamond, East Bank Demerara two weeks ago, remains warded at the Georgetown Public Hospital in a state of limbo even as the motorist who ploughed into him, totalling his motorcycle and leaving him indefinitely incapacitated, continues to drive as though it is ‘business as usual.’ The accident was caused by an allegedly drunken motorist and happened in the wee hours of Sunday, April 21. Gibbs, who was struck on the knee and impulsively thrown off his cycle and into a clump of bushes, suffered an open fracture to his left knee, which, to date, remains bolted with steel. His pillion rider, Marino Matthias, was thrust forward and ended up under the motor car, which almost dragged him to death, as the driver began to rev his engine preparatory to departing the scene of the accident. He suffered a broken leg and burns to the head and face inflicted by the car’s radiator water. Police visited him in hospital last Friday, two weeks after that accident, and he was made to understand that the errant vehicle has not been impounded for even one day. Meanwhile, Gibbs remains immobilised, and can do nothing for himself. He continues to cry out in pain, and is scheduled to return to theatre for a second surgery, which will determine the outcome of his injuries. That second surgery had been scheduled for Tuesday, but has

been deferred because of his elevated blood pressure and insufficient blood. In the meantime, he is required to have several units of blood to adequately prepare him for the surgery. So far, he has been given one unit of blood, but with an ‘O-positive’ blood type, he is unsure of his chances at securing the remainder in the near future, especially now being unable to work and so cannot earn. But even as Jesse Gibbs continues to languish on a hospital bed, the man who caused the accident has never once visited him in hospital, Gibbs disclosed. Gibbs said the offending motorist spoke with a relative, offering a negligible sum as compensation; but even that has, to date, has not been forthcoming. Notwithstanding his confinement to bed, his regular daily expenses have not been minimized or even stabilized; rather, they have increased considerably, Gibbs reasoned. And with a wife and two infant children to provide for, he is at his wits end to face each new day. Meanwhile, for as long as his blood pressure keeps going up, and his blood (hemoglobin) count remains low due to anemia, his chances of being admitted to theatre for his second surgery will remain minimal, further greatly compounding his present condition. He is, however, grateful to the doctors and nurses at the GPHC for their kind and attentive care. In the circumstances, the injured man is calling on the offending motorist to ‘have a heart’ and to ‘let his conscience be his guide.’

The injured Jesse Gibbs is awaiting a second surgery.

Bernadette Persaud exhibition opens Thursday at Castellani House By Michel Outridge CASTELLANI House will be hosting an art exhibition entitled “As New and As Old” by Bernadette Indira Persaud to celebrate Arrival Day and Guyana’s 48th Independence Anniversary. The exhibition opens Thursday at 5pm at the National Gallery of Art on Vlissengen Road and Homestretch Avenue, here in the city. Curator, Ohene Koama, of Castellani House said Persaud’s work last graced the Gallery a decade ago in 2005, when she did a solo exhibition entitled ‘India’: A Glimpse,’ sponsored by the High Commissioner of India to Guyana.

Bernadette Persaud

He added that by then, she had already accomplished significant achievements, and had gained recognition in the Region and in the Diaspora. Koama stated that Persaud’s most recent painting in the National Collection is “Going Masjid,’ which is dated 1994 – two decades ago. It is only now, with this exhibition, that this lapse can be corrected. Bernadette Persaud is an established artist, whose work gained national recognition in 1985 when she became the first woman to win the National Visual Arts Competition and Exhibition. She has since won many awards, including national honours, among many other achievements both locally and overseas. Bernadette Persaud began painting seriously in the early 1980s, after she had been forced out of her teaching career. Painting became an instrument which not merely seduced, but pricked and prodded the individual/collective conscience, she said. The scope of her work later broadened into an investigation of not only political oppression, but cultural identity and the ephemerality of life. In retrospect, it was a quest – integral to post-colonial societies – tied up with that complex of needs for creativity, originality and an authentic self.

Eight Miss World Guyana 2014 delegates officially sashed By Alex Wayne AT a simple but glitzy ceremony at the Pegasus Hotel Sunday, the Miss World Guyana Committee officially sashed most of the delegates vying for the prestigious 2014 crown and title. W h i l e M i s s Ay a n a Whitehead and Tiffany Megnath were not there for the sashing because of other pressing duties, six dazzling ladies were the centre of attraction as they sashayed and pivoted saucily, delighting the small audience. Meanwhile, the committee declared earlier that contestants, Kelly-Ann Latchman and Jovan Wilson, selected to represent Region

7 and Region 10 respectively as regional beauty and goodwill ambassadors, had withdrawn their participation from the pageant for personal reasons. The beauties were serenaded before their appearance by a member of the popular Y3K Song Group who wooed the gathering with a melodious rendition on saxophone. Then in came the ‘Men in Black’, all immaculately attired as they took their positions behind the seats reserved for the contestants. These were actually ranks from Ghalee Khan’s Integrated Security Service which has been contracted to provide security for the ladies at each event, running up to pageant night.

and Berbice Mining Enterprises Limited and the Aroaima Mining Company.” He also spoke of Webster’s fearlessness in taking a position and expressing a view he believed was matched by his incomparable circumspection. “Indeed, over and beyond being a chemical engineer by training, and a manager and an entrepreneur, I believe that Ron Webster was a consummate diplomat and sophisticated advocate, displaying an uncanny ability to represent his interests oftentimes without even appearing to be doing so.” THE GREATEST CHALLENGE More recently, he said, Webster was elected to the Chairmanship of the Private Sector Commission, the pinnacle of private sector representation and advocacy. Said Dr. Singh: “His role as head of the umbrella group for the private sector was at no time without challenge, especially given the impor-

tance of the private sector in Guyana’s economy today and indeed the political complexities that obtain in today’s Guyana.” Dr. Singh noted that even in accepting the nomination to this position, Webster knew the magnitude of the task before him, and displayed that “distinguishing disposition of his” the willingness to take on the greatest of challenges with sharp focus and genuine sincerity of purpose. UNDAUNTED He noted further that Ron Webster was not, at any time, to be confounded by the subtleties and nuances involved in representing his constituency’s interests in these complex times. Neither was he to be daunted by the incivility and brutishness that appear to be borne down these days on those who dare to venture within the territory of public service and public life. Dr. Singh recalled that Webster navigated the heady waters of civil society representation and advocacy with formidable skill and dignified aplomb. “I had the distinct privilege, “ he said, “of witnessing

first-hand, and at close range, his forthright expression of strong private sector positions on such issues of national importance as the Amaila Falls Hydropower Project and the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (Amendment) Bill, cuts to the national budget and the construction of the new Marriott Hotel. “At a time when, and in situations where, expressing a view that sounds anything less than hostile to, worse yet even remotely close to being aligned with, Government is anathema to some and can invite caustic criticism, Ron Webster guarded his objectivity fiercely, built strong consensus in the private sector, and spoke boldly and fearlessly in the cause of the national interest and that of his constituency on all of these issues.” In concluding, the Finance Minister said: “On behalf of His Excellency, President Donald Ramotar, the Cabinet, and the entire Government of Guyana, indeed on behalf of all of the people of Guyana, I salute the life and service of Ronald Daniel Webster; I say farewell to this exemplary Guyanese citizen who I had the immeasurable privilege of knowing and calling a friend. I join you all in mourning his passing and I extend once again deepest condolences to those closest to him. May his soul rest in peace and rise in eternal glory.

First Family among sold-out audience at ‘Klose to My Soul’ concert - held in commemoration of the genesis of our IndoGuyanese roots

PRESIDENT Donald Ramotar and First Lady, Madame Deolatchmee Ramotar were among the thousands gathered at the Guyana National Stadium at Providence Sunday evening to savour the virtuosity of renowned Bollywood playback singer, Sonu Nigam. Here at the invitation of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, he was accompanied by a 25-member troupe out of Mumbai, among them some of Bollywood’s best musicians. The concert, the proceeds of which will go towards the Sabha’s Bal Nivas home for vulnerable children, was held in commemoration of the 176th Anniversary of Indian Arrival in Guyana, and the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha’s 40th anniversary. The children facility, which is located at Ankerville, in the County of Berbice, has the capacity to comfortably house close to 60. The facility materialised after a series of massive fund-raising events, including mega concerts featuring Bollywood’s singing sensations. President Ramotar, who briefly addressed the thousands of local Sonu Nigam fans at Sunday evening’s concert, applauded their support of a worthwhile cause, and encouraged their support of other such ventures. He also hailed the concert as being a fitting tribute to those of our Guyanese ancestors who came to these shores, and despite difficulties, managed to upkeep the Indian culture. “Today, 176 years after,” he said, “we have the top artistes of India coming to entertain us, that is a testimony of the fact that our fore parents managed in difficult and very harsh circumstances to maintain this culture and to give it also a specific Guyanese flavour.” On May 5, 1838, 233 men, five women and six children from India became the first batch of East Indian immigrants to arrive on board the Whitby at Highbury to supplement the multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society in which Guyana today prides itself. The concert, which also featured performances from upcoming Bollywood playback singer, Jonita Gandhi, represented the Guyana leg of Sonu Nigam’s 2014 World Concert tour, titled “Klose to My Soul”, in tribute to Indian musical legends the likes of Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Manna Dey, Lata Mangeshkar, RD Burman and Kishore Kumar.

with two goals from substitute Dwight Gayle and one from Damien Delaney who brought Palace back into the game with a screamer in the 79th minute before Gayle’s second two minutes from time forced the draw. IN DESPAIR The Liverpool players slumped to the ground in despair at the end with Suarez and others in tears as they left the field. Liverpool’s title hopes, already receding after last week’s 2-0 home defeat by Chelsea and City’s 3-2 win at Everton on Saturday, are now hanging by an even slenderer thread and manager Brendan Rodgers conceded their challenge was over. “The title race is over now, Manchester City will go on and win it. We had to win this match tonight to keep the pressure on City. I think they will go on and win the two games and be champions,” he told reporters. “For 75 minutes it was an outstanding performance. The important thing was to win the game tonight to put some sort of pressure on City but it’s very disappointing to concede those three goals. “It was really poor defending. Poor decisionmaking. We should have managed the game much

better when we were 3-0 up,” he said. “But Palace showed great spirit to come back into it,” PALACE FIGHTBACK Palace’s fightback typified their own recovery under coach Tony Pulis this season. Seemingly headed for relegation with just one win in their first 12 games when he took over in November, they will finish in a comfortable mid-table spot. There was no hint of the devastation to hit Liverpool, however, as they controlled the game until the final drama unfolded. “At halftime I really believed if we could keep it tight for 10 minutes then we could get back in the game but we didn’t manage that,” Pulis said. “Liverpool are a team you can score goals against but they will always back themselves to score more than you so I always felt we would score. “The first goal knocked them back a bit and our supporters were just amazing and they played their part. “The big test was keeping their forwards quiet, we didn’t manage to do that but we did score goals.”

Suarez completes redemption with Footballer-of-the-Year award By Mike Collett LONDON, England (Reuters) Liverpool striker Luis Suarez completed his redemption from outcast to hero when he was named England’s Footballer-of-the-Year by the Football Writers’ Association (FWA) yesterday. The prestigious honour completes an award double after he was named the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Playerof-the-Year last month. The 27-year-old Uruguayan finished ahead of team mate Steven Gerrard and Yaya Toure of Manchester City in the poll of England’s football writers and the honour follows an astonishing

turnaround for Suarez who began this season serving the remainder of a 10-match ban imposed for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last April. Although he missed the first five games of the season, the controversial striker, who will play against Gerrard and England in the World Cup in Brazil next month, is the Premier League’s top scorer this season with 30 goals with two matches remaining. His goals have sustained Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge - the Anfield Club are behind leaders Manchester City on goal difference with two matches remaining. Suarez polled 52 per cent of the vote of around 300 members. Last year he polled

two votes. “He did only receive two votes last season,” FWA chairman Andy Dunn told Sky Sports, “although there was a groundswell of support for him last season, but our voting opened just 12 hours after the biting incident at Anfield, so that was taken into account.” The FWA award is not only based on a player’s achievements on the pitch, but also on their behaviour and example throughout the season and Dunn continued: “While nobody would say Suarez is whiter than white you have to say his behaviour throughout the season has been very good. “I think the football writers have taken that into account. “There is an element of

Royals charge back from dead A STUNNING collapse triggered by Australian Shane Watson has snatched a remarkable 10-run victory for Rajasthan over Kolkata in Ahmedabad. Chasing 170 to win, the Knight Riders were cruising thanks to a record opening stand of 121 between captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa. What happened next had to be seen to be believed.  In the space of eight deliveries, KKR lost six wickets for two runs, with 42-year-old Indian spinner Pravin Tambe claiming a hat-trick after Watson’s own remarkable triple breakthrough. Earlier, it was young Indian star Karun Nair who topscored for the Royals for the second time in as many matches with 44 from 35 deliveries.  Yet Kolkata took wickets at regular intervals, with wily West Indian spinner Sunil Narine again claiming his side’s best figures (2-28) from his four overs. Captain Watson (31 off 20) joined Sanju Samson (37 off 30) at the crease for a solid middle-order partnership, and when Watson departed in the 19th over after clubbing a

pair of sixes, the score had ticked past 150.

Leg-spinner Pravin Tambe exults after dismissing Ryan ten Doeschate for his hat-trick in Ahmedabad, yesterday.

Stuart Binny (11 off 9) did well to push the total towards its final mark of 170 before being brilliantly caught in the deep by flying Dutchman Ryan ten Doeschate, who came into the XI at the expense of South African legend Jacques Kallis. KKR’s reply got off to a strong start, with Gambhir (54 off 34) finding some much needed form and laying a superb foundation for his side in concert with

Robin Uthappa (65 off 52), who paced his innings superbly throughout. The pair quickly gathered momentum, finding the boundary where necessary and keeping the run rate at a manageable level despite the best efforts of Australians Watson and James Faulkner. Gambhir hit his 300th four in IPL matches - a first by any player - while the partnership was also the highest-ever by a KKR opening pair. Watson finally broke through with the wicket of Gambhir, his opposing captain, finding the outside edge from a slower delivery, and as so often happens, one wicket triggered a collapse.  But few collapses have been of such biblical proportions. Shakib Al Hasan and Yadav were left to clean up the mess but despite a late flurry from the former, the job was too much for the seventhwicket pair, as Faulkner bowled a superb penultimate over to effectively close out the contest.  KKR finished their innings at 6-xxx, meaning they have now suffered four defeats from their last four, while Rajasthan have now won four in a row to take a share of first place.

sensational talent he has displayed all season -and it has made him a very popular choice.” DIFFICULT PERIOD Suarez becomes the 10th Liverpool player to win the award and one of their previous winners, Ian Rush, praised Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers for the way he handled a difficult period at the start of the season after Suarez tried to engineer a move in the off-season. “He was training by himself,” Rush told Sky Sports, “but once he apologised, the manager welcomed him back and said you are one of the players now. “The manager could have handled it differently, but he didn’t and Suarez has repaid

him.” Rush, who was Footballerof-the-Year in 1984, also praised Suarez for his workrate saying he had a huge influence on the Liverpool team attempting to win the title for the first time since 1990. “He has been absolutely incredible with the amount of goals he has got and the assists he has got,” said Rush. “But more importantly than that is the hard work he has put it. I think he has made a big difference to Liverpool’s players - not just himself.” The FWA award is the oldest of its kind in world football and was first awarded in 1948 with Stanley Matthews the first recipient.

Witness feared Pistorius might have shot himself PRETORIA, South Africa (Reuters) - A defence witness in the murder trial of South African track star Oscar Pistorius told the court yesterday she feared the double amputee would have shot himself with the gun he used to kill his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day last year. Carice Viljoen and her father Johan, the manager of Pistorius’ up-market Pretoria housing complex, were first on the scene after the 27-year-old shot dead his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in the early hours of February 14, 2013. She said she feared Pistorius might use the gun he had left upstairs to kill himself after emergency services staff asked him to fetch the already dead Steenkamp’s identification. “I was scared that he might shoot himself,” she told the court as the trial resumed after a two-week adjournment. “I couldn’t hear him. I called out to him to hurry up with the bag.” Pistorius’ defence hinges on his assertion that he heard a noise in the middle of the night and thought it was an intruder climbing into the bathroom adjoining

his bedroom. When he heard another

Ocsar Pistoruis

noise coming from the toilet he fired four shots through the door, thinking an intruder was behind it. Steenkamp, a 29-year-old law graduate and model, was hit by at least three of the four hollow-point rounds fired and died almost instantly. The state argues that Pistorius killed her deliberately in a fit of rage after the couple had a row. Viljoen was the second defence witness called yesterday, taking the stand after her father. The testimony from both painted a picture of Pistorius as a broken man in

the immediate aftermath of the killing. Johan Stander said Pistorius was “torn apart, broken, desperate, pleading” as he prayed for Steenkamp to stay alive. Earlier, he described the telephone call he received in the middle of the night from a distressed Pistorius telling him he had killed Steenkamp by mistake. “Oom (Uncle) Johan, please, please come to my house. I shot Reeva. I thought she was an intruder. Please, please come quickly,” he quoted Pistorius as telling him. If convicted of murder, Pistorius faces life in prison. The trial, which was adjourned on April 17 to allow prosecutors to deal with other cases on their books, has drawn huge interest both in South Africa and abroad. Before the shooting, Pistorius, who had his lower legs amputated as a baby, was one of the most recognised names in athletics, competing against able-bodied sprinters on carbon-fibre prosthetics. Besides a clutch of Paralympic medals, he reached the semi-finals of the 400m at the London 2012 Olympics.



Zico warns Brazil of Uruguayan déjà vu FORMER Brazil star Zico makes his countrymen FIFA World Cup favourites -- but warns Uruguay, who wrecked the Seleção’s dreams on their last hosting in 1950, are his dark horses. The former Japan coach particularly hopes Brazil avoid meeting Luis Suarez and company in the final. “I would prefer to meet Argentina in the final. Not Uruguay,” Zico said in yesterday’s Estado de Sao Paulo.  “I think Uruguay

could be the only team who could psychologically shake the Brazilian team.” Zico ventured that if Brazil did meet Uruguay once again in the trophy match the pressure would be huge “because many people will be speaking about 1950,” when the Uruguayans came from behind to score a shock win. Then, as now, Zico suggested, the Brazilians would feel “an obligation to win -- and this could destabilise them.” Zico admitted he would be

FORMER Brazil star Zico

happy to see Uruguay not get out of the group phase. With regard to Argentina, who won their two World Cups

in the last two editions of the event to be played in Latin America, at home in 1978 and in Mexico eight years

later, Zico said the Messi factor was the key. Barcelona star Lionel Messi is seen by many as needing to add a world title to his club achievements before he can be regarded as the best player ever. Zico indicated his country’s chances depended on ensuring the squad play to his strengths. “Today, Argentina understand they have to play for Messi for the team to do well, though they have good players,” he said. “It’s not that the team depends on

him, rather that playing more to his strengths than they played before.” He added he believed that European teams would find the going tough in Brazil but said if any European side could prosper it would be Italy. “The Italians always are transformed when it comes to official competition,” Zico said, judging Spain short on goalscoring firepower and the Netherlands’ style not to his liking.

Focus back on ODI cricket as England, Ireland, Scotland and Sri Lanka launch World Cup preparations ONE month after the conclusion of the ICC World Twenty20 Bangladesh 2014, action in international cricket resumes this week, with One-Day International (ODI) cricket in focus. Dublin will host two ODIs between 1996 world champions Sri Lanka and the giant-killers of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, Ireland, on May 6 and 8. On May 9 in Aberdeen, three-time ICC Cricket World Cup finalists England will square-off against Scotland, who qualified for the ICC Cricket World Cup

2015 by winning the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2014, earlier this year in New Zealand. With just nine months to go before the start of the event, which runs between February 14 and March 29, these three ODIs mean that the first phase of build-up for all sides has well and truly begun. While England and Sri Lanka have more to lose, Ireland and Scotland have plenty to gain from their respective series. Ireland currently sit in 11th place on the Reliance ICC

Angelo Mathews

ODI Team Rankings with 34 ratings points, and trail third-ranked Sri Lanka by 78 ratings points. Because the rankings are weighted to reflect this difference, Ireland will gain points if they win even one match in the series. Scotland, currently unranked, have an opportunity to inch closer to getting on to the main rankings table. However, to make that happen, they will have to beat England. To get onto the main rankings table, Scotland need to either win two ODIs

against Full Members, or achieve one win in an ODI against a Full Member and also win more than 60 per cent of ODIs against other Associates. Meanwhile, fans in Dublin and Aberdeen will get to see some of the biggest names in action during the ODIs to be played there. Among the stars in the top 20 of the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI Batsmen likely to be seen in action are Eoin Morgan (15th) and Alastair Cook (20th). Among the bowlers inside the top 20 of the Reliance

ICC Player Rankings for ODI Bowlers likely to be seen in action are James Anderson (eighth) and Angelo Mathews (16th). Sri Lanka captain Mathews also starts the series against Ireland as the numbertwo ranked all-rounder on the Reliance ICC Player Rankings for ODI Allrounders. Forthcoming fixtures: Ireland v Sri Lanka May 6: First ODI, Dublin May 8: Second ODI, Dublin Scotland v England May 9: One-off ODI, Aberdeen

Bowling coach McDermott signs new deal with Australia SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) - Australia bowling coach Craig McDermott, who has been credited with turning his country’s pace attack into one of the most potent in the world, has signed a new two-year deal, Cricket Australia said yesterday. The 49-year-old former paceman returned as Australia’s bowling coach ahead of last year’s home Ashes series against England, his second stint after working with the fast

bowlers for a year starting May 2011. Australia demolished England 5-0 at home and then won a series in South Africa to climb back to the top of the Test rankings with the pace battery widely proclaimed as the best in the world. “Craig has built a really strong rapport with the bowling group,” Cricket Australia’s team performance manager Pat Howard said in a statement. “Combine that with the

international experience and technical expertise, it has proved to be a successful combination in recent times and we’re keen to see that continue.” Since his return, McDermott has worked only with the Test pacemen but in a new role will now also help out the limited-overs bowlers as Australia prepares to cohost the 50-overs World Cup with New Zealand next year. “Craig will also do a bit more work with the limited

overs players, along with Ali de Winter, as we head towards the World Cup early next year,” Howard added. “As part of his role he will be closely connected to the work being done at the National Cricket Centre to ensure he is aligned to also developing players for the future.” Mitchell Johnson and Ryan Harris have been Australia’s standout bowlers during

their recent success, with the reliable Peter Siddle, young gun James Pattinson and spinner Nathan Lyon also making telling contributions. McDermott, who took 291 wickets in 71 Tests for Australia, said the goal would be to maintain the good work with a home series against India coming up, followed by next year’s World Cup and the Ashes in England. Craig McDermott took 291 “I feel like we’ve got a really wickets in 71 Tests for good group at the moment,” Australia. he said.

“It’s really been great to build this close bond with them all - the boys call it the fast bowling cartel, but we also let Nathan Lyon in - and we’re all really motivated to keep that going. “I’m also looking forward to taking on more responsibility and to work closely with Darren Lehmann (head coach) to broaden my coaching skills and, alongside Michael Di Venuto (batting coach), to ensure we’re a well-oiled coaching unit.”



Arena das Dunas passes another FIFA World Cup test THE Arena das Dunas staged its third 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil test event on Saturday, with ABC defeating AmericaRN 2-0 in the clássico do Rio Grande do Norte, on match day three of the Brazilian second division championship. The tests carried out by the Brazil 2014 Organising Committee (LOC) revealed that the stadium is all but ready for the tournament which gets under way on June 12. In all, ten operational areas were tested at the match, more than at any another test event staged this year: cleaning and waste management, transport, spectator services, volunteers, media operations, catering, technology, competitions, medical services and safety and security. The crowd of just over 10 000 had the opportunity to see some of the organisational aspects that will be rolled out at the FIFA World

Cup, such as the organisation of queues at the turnstiles and the services provided by volunteers. Responsible for attending to players and for conducting doping controls, the LOC’s medical team also took the opportunity to carry out drills. Brazil 2014 LOC Stadium Operations Manager Tiago Paes said that the whole operation went smoothly thanks to the fact the Arena has been in regular use since January. “The consortium is delighted,” he said. “The fact that 19 events have been held here in Natal really helped us with our operations. The fans here have seen the kind of operations that we are looking to implement for the FIFA World Cup.” Demetrio Torres, Rio Grande do Norte’s Executive Secretary of FIFA World Cup Affairs, also expressed his satisfaction with the

result of the test event. “Expectations have been very high all week long,” he commented. “It was a bit like taking an oral test, and

from what I could see, we passed it.” The next Brazil 2014 test event will be held on Saturday May 10 at the Beira-Rio in Porto

Alegre, where Internacional will take on Atletico-PR in a Brazilian first division championship match.

Blake ban reduced to four-and-a-half years BERNE, (Reuters) Jamaican 400-metre runner Dominique Blake’s six-year ban for a second doping offence has been cut to four-and-a-half years on appeal, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) said in a statement yesterday. CAS said it had reached its decision “in view of some mitigating factors” although it added that “the athlete has failed to establish that she bears no significant fault or negligence.” Blake tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhexanamine at the 2012 Olympic trials, her second doping offence after she tested positive for ephedrine in 2006 for which she was banned for nine months.

Holligan then dribbled two players to make the score 2-1 at halftime. The final whistle came and the jubilant DIVA, consisting of school-aged girls, rejoiced at their victory. In the second game, the DIVA drew 1-1 with the experienced and mighty Bon Fin Female team. Scoring first were the DIVA and the goal was scored by the energetic and skilful Abiose Heywood who hit a low shot to the first post that had goal written all over it. The Bon Fin team who play regularly in Boa Vista had to fight hard for an equaliser which eventually came. The score remained 1-1 at the final whistle.

JCA boss confused over real Four-Day title holders KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) - Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) president, Wilford Heaven, says he is confused over who are the real champions of Regional Four-Day cricket, following the conclusion of the first class season. Jamaica emerged winners of the Headley/Weekes Trophy after defeating the Windward Islands in the final in St Lucia. However, Barbados, who amassed most points at the end

JCA president Wilford Heaven

of the first-round league stage of the tournament, are the official Four-Day champions, the WICB has  said. “Right now, I am really not sure who the champions are at the moment,” declared Heaven in an interview with The Gleaner. “We have in our possession a trophy that says ‘Regional Four-Day champions’. The WICB had instituted a number of changes to the tournament in a bid to improve performance and create excitement.

The format of not awarding the team the title with the most points at the end of the league stage of the tournament was scrapped. The President’s Cup was introduced and Barbados, after amassing 82 points to Trinidad and Tobago’s 80, were declared Four-Day champions. “I am, therefore, taking it at face value that we are indeed the Four-Day champions, as this is the trophy that we lost last season, and we now have it back in our possession,” Heaven said..

“So to hear that Barbados, in winning the preliminary President’s Cup are the champions is somewhat of a mystery, and it is something that we need to get to the bottom of.” The Headley/Weekes Trophy was made available to the top-four teams via a play-off, Jamaica, having defeated Barbados in the semi-finals, coming out on top. Heaven, in his first term as head of the JCA, is calling for a review of the tournament. “If the position is that

Barbados are the champions, and not Jamaica, there needs to be some sort of review. This is because it is not clear at the moment in everybody’s mind as to who are the true champions,” he said. “Additionally, I would like to say that if Barbados are indeed the champions then the competitions rules, as they currently are, are flawed. You cannot have a tournament where the champions are being declared winners at the end of the preliminary round.”

Don’t worry over Smith half-century leads late start, says Bolt CSK to sixth straight win

KINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) - Sprint sensation Usain Bolt is seeking to allay the fears of his fans who may be worried over his late start to the 2014 track and field season. Bolt is yet to make his debut for the season with a quarter of the year already elapsed. “There is never anything to worry about,” Bolt said in an interview with the Jamaica Observer. “For me, I take my time throughout my seasons and you know the season is never perfect — niggles here, niggles there, but the coach will decide when I

Usain Bolt

start and hopefully I’ll start very soon”.

Bolt, 27, the first man to win six Olympic gold medals in sprinting, said the next two years will be crucial in his already glittering career. “I am just taking my time and going through the season because in the Commonwealth year, I try to take it as easy as possible,” said Bolt who entered the 2012 London Olympics and became the first runner to win back-to-back 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay titles. “I want to run fewer races because the next couple of years will be very important.”

Nash century puts Kent in control against Surrey his innings with a score of 126.

C A N T E R B U R Y, England, (CMC)-Former West Indies batsman Brendan Nash scored a century to help put Kent firmly ahead against Surrey on day two of their English County match at Canterbury yesterday.

Key’s century shared another milestone in which he passed 18,000 runs in first-class cricket. Nash scored at a faster rate, spending just less than half as long at the crease as his skipper, hammering 19 fours and a six before Zafar Ansari brought the partnership to an end.

Nash compiled a well played 126 as Kent took first innings lead, amassing 355 for four in reply to Surrey’s 285. He shared in a 197 run partnership for the third wicket with his captain Rob Key who matched

Brendan Nash hammered 19 fours and a six to reach 126

Dwayne Smith belts the ball down the ground in his top score of 79 for Chennai Super Kings.

DELHI, India (CMC) West Indies opener Dwayne Smith roared to a blistering half-century and carried a dominant Chennai Super Kings to a crushing eightwicket victory over Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here yesterday. Smith targeted every Daredevil bowler and plundered boundaries at will, cracking a top score of 79 to

lead an exciting run chase that overhauled a target of 179 at Feroz Shah Kotla. Smith’s batting exploits, and with a contribution of 47 from Suresh Raina, helped Super Kings secure their sixth straight win in the IPL. CSK reached the target with two balls to spare as the Barbadian batsman dominated with his 51ball knock highlighted

by eight sixes and four sixes. Smith departed in the 19th over when his side needed 11 runs off 8 balls, caught at the edge of the straight boundary lofting a full toss down the ground. The win ensures CSK strengthen their position at the top while Delhi will now find it extremely difficult to go beyond the first stage of the tournament.
