CARICOM, Spain identify priority areas for continued cooperation

to Middle Income Countries (MICs). She added that CARICOM was keenly aware of Spain’s acknowledgement of the inadequacies of the traditional criteria used in the classification of countries as MICs and welcomed its continued advocacy for a more critical examination of the current policies for their graduation from development assistance. The Deputy Secretary-General said CARICOM also welcomed the modality of the cooperation established through the CARICOM-Spain Joint Fund which started with US$1.4M for jointly approved projects and had been sustained with additional funding for bolstering areas of critical importance to regional development.

Against this backdrop, the Deputy Secretary-General said the Community has acknowledged Spain’s representation of issues unique

TAKEN NOTE Additionally, Garcia said Spain had taken note of the deepening of CARICOM-Spain relations since the First Meeting of the Joint Commission in 2002. He said that an agreement on the implementation of areas of cooperation was of critical importance to Spain as it was “really willing” to demonstrate “the

THE Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and Spain have identified areas of priority that will be pursued under that country’s technical cooperation agreement with the grouping. They include information and communication technology, the development of regional micro small and medium enterprises and the strengthening of a competitive regional economy, said a release issued after the third meeting of the CARICOM-Spain Joint Commission. The two-day caucus was held at the CARICOM Secretariat, Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown, and it discussed developing human capacity through the transfer of knowledge, as well as cooperation on sustainable development, the environment and security, which were also identified for further cooperation. The release said those priorities were rationalised during the talks by the two sides, led by CARICOM Deputy Secretary-General, Ambassador Dr. Manorma Soeknandan, and Director

of Cooperation with Latin America and the Caribbean, Rafael Garranzo Garcia, of the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation for Development. MAPPED OUT The two parties mapped out a new cooperation programme for the next four years and agreed that it was necessary to evaluate the programmes, and projects that were done under the Second Joint Commission, so as to understand their impact. Speaking at the opening of the meeting, Ambassador Soeknandan underscored the need for the CARICOM-Spain cooperation to be evident to Member States, noting that the areas identified were directly or indirectly linked with the priorities in the strategic plan which is being developed for the Community, particularly economic growth, security and democratic governance. She said the Community had taken note of changes with bilateral international partners, which had stimulated CARICOM’s interest

political will” to implement the scope of the CARICOM-Spain cooperation agreement. Discussions between CARICOM and Spain were advanced within the framework of the scientific and technical cooperation agreement signed between the Kingdom of Spain and CARICOM Member States in 1999. An addendum to that agreement establishing the Spain-CARICOM Joint Fund was signed in 2011. Included in the new areas of cooperation advanced on Monday were cooperation on sustainable development, the environment and security. Collaboration to support stabilisation and development in Haiti, as well as matters related to the Post2015 Development Agenda -- which Spain is committed to participating in and developing – were also endorsed. During the talks, the CARICOM delegation raised the matter of progress on Community reform, focusing on the development of the five-year Strategic Plan for the Community that is to be presented to Heads of Government of CARICOM at their meeting in July.

The release said the Spanish delegation underlined that Spain has been firmly committed to the sustainable development of the Caribbean Community with which it signed its first Regional Cooperation Programme in the Region celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Despite the severe economic challenges, Spain is among the top 10 donors to CARICOM and a strong advocate of aid to the Caribbean Basin, contributing to making the European Union (EU) the Region’s largest donor. The III Spain-CARICOM Joint Commission reveals the provision of additional funding by Spain for cooperation programmes with CARICOM with the aim of contributing to the strengthening of the strategic regional role and international position of CARICOM, to the regional integration process and to the strengthening of the institutions of CARICOM Member States. The First Joint Commission Meeting was held in Madrid, Spain, in 2002, while the Second was held in Kingston, Jamaica, in 2006.

Dr. Anthony refutes claims of sexual molestation at NOC By Ravin Singh MINISTER of Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr. Frank Anthony, yesterday maintained that “nothing is happening at the New Opportunity Corps,” despite claims of sexual molestation by parents and female children at the institution. Dr. Anthony said that a lot of the perceptions circulating about the NOC are nothing but mere perceptions, which would dissipate if parents were to visit and make themselves aware of what is happening at the NOC. The Minister described the allegations surfacing in the media as sensational

press, and noted that those allegations made were not taken to the bodies which could deal with them in a systematic way, but to A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), and APNU failed to refer the complainants to the police, Child Protection Agency, or even his Ministry, resorting instead to national television and national media. However, Dr. Anthony assured that the matter is currently being investigated. He divulged that the first set of allegations made against the NOC staff members was that they were somehow involved sexually with four girls at the institution. “I said repeatedly that we

Minister of Culture, Youth and Sport, Dr. Frank Anthony duct at NOC or anywhere in the ministry,” Dr. Anthony warned. “A subsequent complaint was then made to the Child Care and Protection Agency;

and when that complaint was made, the Child Care and Protection Agency immediately took steps and is currently investigating the matter,” he said. He assured that if there is anyone who can validate and substantiate the claims made in a manner that would find a person or persons culpable, the law of the country would deal with the culpable. The Minister stressed that the four girls who were alleged victims of rape have been removed from the facility and are currently with the Ministry of Human Services while investigations are in progress. “We will await the results that will emerge from that (investigation),” Dr. Anthony said. “So I don’t know what this hype is about!” REGULAR PARENTAL VISITS Minister Anthony insisted that parents of children stationed at NOC should

visit more regularly so as to engage, encourage, and talk to their children in an effort to forge better relationships with them. “If they can come once a week, we will be very happy. Before a child is sent to NOC, (that child has) to pass through the court. So when a child is sent to NOC, we would like the parents to come regularly to visit (the child),” he assured. The Minister deemed sad the situation of parents leaving their children at the NOC for three years without visiting or enquiring about them. He said the Ministry has worked with organizations such as UNICEF to pay the travel allowances for parents to visit at the NOC, but despite these provisions, parents refuse to visit their children. “If people really want to work in the interest of the young people that are at NOC, they should be able to come and volunteer to be mentors for those young people. But it is perhaps

convenient that they only make all these noises conveniently. “So, we have nothing to hide, and I have repeatedly said that. We really want parents to be involved with their children. We need more parental visits,” he urged. The institution also facilitates the provision of religious and academic leaders who are tasked with interacting with the children in the hope of generating change in their behaviours. International organisations’ volunteers also visit the institution on a regular basis to provide counselling for the children. The Ministry is currently mulling separating the girls from the boys in the co-ed facility. The idea, which surfaced out of the current issue at the NOC, is described as a medium-term plan which should take the Ministry a few years to implement but would see complete separation of boys and girls.

Essequibo girl dies in suicide pact between teenage cousins in love By Rajendra Prabhulall A SUICIDE pact between

two cousins on the Essequibo Coast who were said to be in love with each other ended tragically yesterday when the 13-year-old girl succumbed after ingesting a poisonous substance about two weeks ago. The death of 13-year-old

Nishanna Persaud of Bush Lot Village has sent shock waves across the Essequibo Coast. She died early yesterday morning at the Suddie Hospital. Reports said that Nishanna, a student of Cotton Field Secondary, and her 15-year-

old cousinZZTT Shiv Persaud fell deeply in love and decided to end their life in a tragic manner after their parents had sternly objected to their love affair. The two young lovers reportedly decided on April 29th to end their life by suicide and went to a deserted area some five miles aback of their village and drank a poisonous substance. The Guyana Chronicle understands that Shiv phoned his parents and told them that he and Nishanna had both consumed poison and were dying in the backdam. Reports said the parents of both children and other relatives rushed to the backdam and found the young lovers in a helpless condition on the ground. They were both rushed to the Suddie Hospital and admitted. However Nishanna succumbed after fighting for her life for some two weeks in the hospital. However, her cousin Shiv, who also attends secondary school, escaped death and was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday.

House passes Motion to investigate alleged torture by the Police - but differs on parameters governing probe

By Vanessa Narine MEMBERS of Parliament (MPs) have agreed on condemning torture, and acknowledged that Guyana’s Constitution, as well as several international conventions and treaties to which Guyana is a party, make torture criminal. However, Government and Opposition MPs disagreed on the parameters of a Motion to establish a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) to investigate the alleged torture of persons by members of the Guyana Police Force (GPF) between 2006 and 2013. This point was underscored by Government MPs who noted, among other things, that the time period for investigation should not be limited to the seven stated years. PATTERN Mover of the Motion, Leader of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), David Granger, noted that what Guyanese are witnessing is a pattern whereby some members of the Police Force determine innocence or guilt without any resort to the Court. “This House must take a stand (against torture),” he said, adding that such practices are inhumane, cruel and degrading.

Granger said the Motion not only seeks to put a stop to this illegality, but to also guarantee citizens a life without the threat of torture by officials tasked with the duty to serve and protect. He further stressed that practices of torture must not only be condemned and abandoned, but repudiated. In bolstering his argument, Granger quoted the United Nations (UN) definition of torture. In its Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the UN says: “The

kind, when such pain or suffering is inflicted by, or at the instigation of, or with the consent or acquiescence of, a public official or other person acting in an official capacity. It does not include pain or suffering arising only from, inherent in, or incidental to, lawful sanctions.” The Opposition Leader also stated that the incidents of torture are not unknown, and as such, the National Assembly is obliged to take legislative action against such acts. Granger delved into historical facts, recounting that the immediate pre-Indepen-

term "torture" means any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining from him or a third person information or a confession; punishing him for an act he or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed; or intimidating or coercing him or a third person for any reason based on discrimination of any

talk in the House, which Teixeira silenced when she said, “YOU opened the door on torture… YOU must condemn it wherever it took place; not only where you want to condemn it… Maybe we should deal with the history of torture, not only the Guyana Police Force alone.” At this point, the Government MP called for the widening of the scope of a Commission of Inquiry. She spotlighted the need for this, in particular as it relates to “clearing consciences” of who was involved in what. Teixeira posited that immunity, as is done for the witnesses of the ongoing CoI into the death of Dr. Walter Rodney, can also be a point to consider, even as she flayed the Opposition Leader for his comments which reflected a descent into ‘blame game’. TENSE EXCHANGE APNU MP Winston Felix, at this point, heckled that under his stewardship as Police Commissioner, there was not one report of torture. His comment led to a somewhat tense exchange

Would you live in a house made of urine and bacteria? It’s a surprisingly good idea (CNN) -- Peter Trimble found his formula through trial and error. A design student at the University of Edinburgh, he was aiming to produce an artistic exhibition for a module on sustainability, when he stumbled on “Dupe,”a living alternative to concrete. A lab technician introduced Trimble to Sporosarcina pasteurii, a bacterium with binding qualities, sometimes used to solidify soil to hold road signs in place. The student tested it with one of the world’s most abundant resources - sand. Pumping bacterial solution into a sand-filled mould, he added nutrients, urea as fertilizer and calcium. After a year, and hundreds of failed experiments, this process manufactured a stool around 70% the compression strength of concrete. The process requires less than one-sixth of the energy used in concrete production, and is completely biodegradable. Crucially, Trimble believes his mechanism has the added benefit that it could be employed by anyone, anywhere. “Once you have the basic framework it should be transferable. Imagine a Tsunami-hit farm in Indonesia that is not getting supplies. You could use sand and bacteria on site, practically free, and have shelter housing that is far more permanent.”

India’s Army Chief defers visit to Central Asia to brief new Modi government NEW DELHI: Even the country’s defence establishment prepares a briefing on military preparedness for the new Narendra Modi government, with Army Chief, General Bikram Singh, deferring his visit to Tajikistan and Turkmenistan next week. Sources said Gen. Singh was scheduled to visit the energy-rich and strategically-located Central Asia from May 26 to 30 but it has now been put on hold in the backdrop of the swearing in of the Modi government on Monday. The Service chiefs, Gen. Singh; Air Chief Marshal, Arup Raha and Admiral Robin Dhowan; and defence secretary, R. K. Mathur are all preparing their presentations on the existing military capabilities and operational readiness, threat assessment and counter-terrorism operations in J&K and North-East, for the new PM and defence minister.

EBay asks 145 million users to change passwords after cyber attack (Reuters) - EBay Inc said yesterday that a cyber attack carried out three months ago has compromised customer data, and the company urged 145 million users of its online commerce platform to change their passwords. The company said unknown hackers stole email addresses, encrypted passwords, birth dates, mailing addresses and other information in an attack carried out between late February and early March. The files did not contain financial information. An eBay spokeswoman said a large number of accounts may have been compromised, but declined to say how many. EBay said it found no evidence of unauthorized access to financial or credit card information at its PayPal payments subsidiary, which encrypts and stores its data separately.

THE United States has seen the first preliminary signs that Russian forces may be preparing to move away from Ukraine’s eastern border, a U.S. defense official told CNN on Wednesday. “There is some evidence of preparations for potential movement,” the official said. “At a few locations there is evidence of troops packing up, but nothing has moved yet.” The official declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the information. The official also declined to specify the locations and emphasised that actual movement has not yet occurred. This latest assessment was made days after Russia formally announced it had ordered its troops off the border. And it comes ahead of Ukraine’s presidential election scheduled for Sunday.

As Putin looks east…

China, Russia sign US$400 billion gas deal

THE long-awaited agreement is a political triumph for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is courting partners in Asia as those in Europe and the United States seek to isolate him over Moscow’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea peninsula. Commercially, much depends on the price and other terms of the contract, which has been more than a decade in the making. China had the upper hand

as talks entered the home stretch, aware of Putin’s face-off with the West. But both sides could take positives from a deal that will directly link Russia’s huge gas fields to Asia’s booming market for the first time - via thousands of miles of new pipeline across Siberia that form part of the package. “This is the biggest contract in the history of the gas sector of the former USSR,” said Putin, after the agree-

ment was signed in Shanghai between state-controlled entities Gazprom and China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC). “Our Chinese friends are difficult, hard negotiators,” he said, noting that talks went on until 4 a.m. “Through mutual compromise we managed to reach not only acceptable, but rather satisfactory, terms on this contract for both sides. Both sides were in the end pleased by the compro-

mise reached on price and other terms,” the president said. Putin and Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping applauded as they witnessed the deal being signed before the Russian leader was to leave Shanghai at the end of a twoday visit. The agreement came in time for a major economic

summit in St. Petersburg starting today. About a dozen chief executives and chairmen of major U.S. and European firms have withdrawn from the forum over the Ukraine crisis. Putin loyalist and senior parliamentarian Alexei Pushkov, who was included on a U.S. list of sanctions imposed in the wake of the cri-

sis in Ukraine, said the gas deal showed Russia could not be isolated. “B. Obama should abandon the policy of isolating Russia: it will not work,” he tweeted, referring to U.S. President Barack Obama, who has pushed for greater Western punishment of Russia.

EDITORIAL Serving and protecting the nation

THERE are calls for elections – both local and general -- but the opposition are so hungry for power and to get their hands on the national exchequer that every decent-minded Guyanese is fearful of the repercussions when the results are not favourable to the joint opposition, given the historical rampages in Guyana when the PNC and its allies in the GHRA and like-minded NGOs, now the PNC/WPA/AFC combo, do not get the results they want. Through unleashing their ‘Dogs of War’ upon the nation, illogically cutting national budgetary allocations for vital transformative projects and programmes meant to enhance the lives and lifestyles of the people in the country, and their current non-support of the vital CFATF-compliant Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terror Bill, the opposition have shown that they would destroy the country to get their own way. This has been proven so many times that it would take volumes to document. However, it is hoped that if the joint opposition ever again initiate and unleash another rampage in the country, the police would not hesitate to fulfill their designated mandate to protect and serve the law-abiding citizens of this land. No one would argue that police ranks have let the people of this nation down time and again, but equally true is the fact that police have come through brilliantly for this nation, even at the risk of their own lives, when anarchy and mayhem prevailed, with criminals running amok and slaughtering innocents in the land. The demise under fire of Rondell “Fineman” Rawlins, Lindon “Blackie” London and many others of their ilk and their gangs has written in the annals of the history of Guyana’s Police Force that there are indeed heroes in their ranks; and the fact that there are also rogues and villains should not obviate the fact that many of those heroes have sacrificed their lives to protect this nation. When ranks come under fire and they fire in return, they are often criticized and condemned, especially by those who have nefarious agendas that are inimical to the welfare of the nation. Yet, when police are killed in the line of duty, there often is silence on the part of the critics. It has been proven, time and again, that most of the crimes -- especially armed robberies, some of which ensued in the victims being murdered or injured -- have been committed by very young men who have been led astray by so-called leaders and even their own family members, who have come to enjoy the booty from the daily robberies being committed on helpless and hapless victims throughout the land. So if police ranks see young men acting suspiciously,


At Demerara Assizes…

Confession surrounding jealousy in murder case admitted THE jury in the Houston murder case at the Demerara Assizes heard yesterday that the accused, Kevin Verwayne told Police about jealousy in a caution statement. The document, which was the subject of a voir dire (trial within a trial), following allegations that it had been secured through the use of Police violence, was read to the jurors after Justice Navindra Singh ruled that it was given freely and voluntarily. State Prosecutor, Ms. Judith Musalin, in her opening address said the accused had told his friends that his girlfriend, Farida Ramdeen

called ‘Suzy’ was unfaithful. He said she used to entertain men at his home when he had gone to work and it had reached a stage where he could take it no more, so he killed her by drowning and buried her with trash. But Mursalin, in association with Mr. Lloyd Conway, was about to tender a written attestation which she said the accused had given the Police, surrounding the same confession, when Defence Counsel, Mr. Melvyn Duke objected. He said he has been instructed that the written documentation was not obtained in accordance with the Judge’s Rules.

they are within their mandate to ensure that these young men are not among the bands of predators preying on victims countrywide; and this was the consideration that precipitated two unfortunate incidents that brought the police under fire of recent times. And while one should indeed criticize the unprofessional conduct of the ranks that led to the recent unfortunate deaths of two young men in the prime of their lives, the context in which the police acted must also be taken into account. Opportunistic politicians have egged on their supporters into a confrontational mode with the police force, and while dedicated officers are not prepared to compromise their professional integrity and heed “kith and kin” calls for the joint services to lead this country once more into destruction, their inflammatory rhetoric has created unendurable situations where the upholders of law and order were themselves several times subjected to assault by criminal elements in situations where they were unable to defend themselves against assault, i.e. in Linden and Agricola recently. It is untenable that this state of affairs continues, because it will eventually lead to anarchy in the land, which is the intention of the joint opposition, which have stated ad nauseum – jointly and collectively - their intention to destabilize and bring down the successive PPP/C administrations through, in AFC Chairman Nigel Hughes’s words “mass demonstrations”. He said himself that they do not want peace. Under former CoP, the late Laurie Lewis’s tenure, the force had embarked on a campaign countrywide to engage youths in the country into engaging in meaningful pursuits, and late CoP Henry Greene was a patron of the Scouts movement and several sporting disciplines. The Tiger Bay initiative, begun under Laurie Lewis, is one shining example of how police and communities can work together to develop youthful minds in productive directions. The Agricola initiative, which began a couple of years ago, is another such, and young Shaquille Grant was a product of that initiative, with a bright future earmarked through serving in Guyana’s disciplined services. As the then Acting Commissioner of Police said, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, because eyewitnesses who are too afraid to come forward initially attested to the police coming under fire, which they returned; but their mistake was in using excessive force in arresting the young men involved in that unfortunate incident in which Shaquille tragically lost his life. Former Commissioner of Police Mr. Leroy Brumell had adjured members of the GPF as they gathered a couple of years ago to be rewarded for their performances at the conclusion of a GPF-organised shooting competition, “The job of the Guyana Police Force is to serve each and every (resident) of the country and ensure that (each resident is) protected. The

SMALLER TRIAL This led to the smaller trial, in the absence of the jury, which ended with the ruling yesterday when the testament was tendered in evidence through Corporal Henry of Ruimveldt Police Station. The policeman testified that, in the presence of witnesses, Verwayne whom he had told about the death of his lover and cautioned replied that he called a taxi and he and the woman travelled in it to Houston High Bridge. They disembarked the vehicle and walked down a muddy dam where he disclosed to her that he knew when he left for work, she

would have men going to his house and having sex with her although he works hard and gives her all his money. The prisoner said he hugged her up and jumped into the water with her and drowned her before burying her under some trash. He said he took a bath, left home and went and told his cousin Orvin Smith what he did to Suzy. He also confessed to another cousin, Blacks, who took him to the station where he reported to the Police that he had killed Suzy and took them to where he drowned her. The trial is continuing.

police (Force) also has the task (of) offering and ensuring that it provides lawful support to the government of the day, again without favour and/or ill-will.” In his remarks, Brumell alluded to the gap existing in relations between the Guyana Police Force (GPF) and members of the public, which he said must be bridged, opining that the only possible way this can be achieved is when police officers approach issues they confront in a professional manner. He told his ranks that they need to be strong, and show determination in confronting situations. He said that, as Commissioner of Police and head of the Force, he would continue to be strong, emphasizing that he would not be like other persons who tendered their resignations and buckled under pressure in the face of hardship. He said the way persons deal with adversities determines their worth. He told officers that as long as he was strong, he wanted the rest of them to remain strong and resolute to fight situations that arise. He commended police ranks for exercising great restraint and displaying true professionalism in the face of taunts and acts of provocation during protest actions at Agricola; and he reminded his ranks that a duly constituted Commission of Inquiry was currently looking into the issues of July in Linden, and stated his conviction that the Linden Commission of Inquiry was taking note of the situation that unfolded in Agricola. The words of Acting Commissioner of Police Leroy Brumell, provided reassurance to the citizens of Guyana, who traditionally come under attack by criminals unleashed by the intellectual authors of the intermittent rampages of their supporters against a hapless populace continually held ransom to political opportunism. Today the Guyana Police Force is under new administration, and the new Commissioner of Police, Mr. Seelall Persaud, has also given his assurance to the people that he will guide the Force in accordance with protocols conducive for fostering trust for the police within the populace, demonstrating this commitment with the re-vitalized police engagements with the Albuoystown community. It is to be hoped that this activity would not be a one-off exercise, but would extend to the entire country, so that whenever the ‘Dogs of War’ are unleashed against the people of this land in the future, they would never again find sanctuary in any community in the land, because the police would have demonstrated that engagements at community level, and not force, are the way they intend to serve and protect the nation.



Poor ventilation to blame for Qualfon employees discomfort

EMPLOYEES of Qualfon Call Centre and their relatives are blaming poor ventilation at the Goedverwagting, East Coast Demerara building for the discomfort suffered there on Tuesday afternoon. The Guyana Chronicle was told that after a power outage that day, the air-conditioning units on the premises collapsed, causing the entire place to generate heat. It resulted in many of

the staff logging off their work stations and venturing outside for fresh air, since there was not enough oxygen available to them. However, before the decision was taken by many to vacate, several of them had already begun collapsing, panting for breath, and losing consciousness. At least one dozen of them were rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH) where they

were treated for asthma-like symptoms. But none of them had to be admitted, since, according to one health worker, all the patients needed was oxygen; and once that was administered upon their arrival at the Accident and Emergency Room, they were out of danger. It was also learnt that at the time the casualties were taken to the institution, none of them was in a serious

condition. A health worker told this publication that when the persons went for treatment, although it was believed they were suffering from asthma, that is a condition which develops and none of them were treated for that. Other members of the public suggested that the Qualfon employees were under some demonic spell or affected by supernatural force, a conclusion based on

information that the Centre was constructed on what used to be a burial ground for the Plaisance and Ogle communities. Yesterday, numerous efforts to contact the Minister of Labour, Dr. Nanda Gopaul and Chief Labour

Officer Charles Ogle at their offices or on mobile phones were futile. Minister Gopaul was said to be in Parliament and calls to his phone went unanswered while Ogle had, reportedly, left for the day and his mobile was not answered either.

Parliamentary Select Committee on AML/CFT meets today THE Parliamentary Special Select Committee reviewing the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Amendment Bill will meet today, even as Guyana faces the increasing likelihood of international blacklisting. Ms. Gail Teixeira, who chairs the group, said in the National Assembly, yesterday, that the Bill is being “tortured” in the Committee. The Government Chief Whip made the remark when speaking on a motion,

moved by Opposition Leader David Granger, to establish a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the torture of persons by the Guyana Police Force (GPF) between 2006 and 2013. “I honestly feel that I am a victim of torture,” she declared, referring to the length of time the legislation has spent at the level of the Select Committee. Additionally, the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) is scheduled to begin meeting in Miami, Florida, United Sates, on Sunday, May 25 through

Thursday, May 29. Guyana is expected to make an appearance before the regional body next Monday, May 26, represented by a team led by Attorney-General (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs, Mr. Anil Nandlall. Teixeira maintains the fact that the positions taken by the Opposition parties are unfortunate, given the looming deadline and the devastating consequences non-passage of the AML/ CFT Amendment Bill will have for Guyana. If the final deadline on

Ruling by Deputy Speaker elicits laughter A RULING by Deputy Speaker, Basil Williams elicited laughter from Members of Parliament (MPs) on both sides of the House yesterday. It happened when he stated that two contentious assertions “cancel out” each other, and no apology from either side was required. Attorney-General (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs, Mr. Anil Nandlall, and A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) frontbencher, Mr. Carl Greenidge were the Parliamentarians exchanging words on the floor at the time. The AG was speaking on a Motion to establish a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the torture of

persons by the Guyana Police Force between 2006 and 2013, when Greenidge rose to object to a point he made. “He is a liar!” Greenidge charged. Government Chief Whip,

Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly, Basil Williams

Ms. Gail Teixeira, rose, on a point of order, to point out that referring to a sitting MP as a liar is unacceptable, and called for a retraction. Greenidge, without retracting his remark, said:“The Honourable Member made an assertion that is untrue.” The Deputy Speaker intervened to rule that both sides of the House had exchanged contentions comments, and as such they “cancel out” each other. Throughout the remainder of the session, heckling using the terminology “cancel out”, in much the same way childish disputes are rationalised, were echoed by MPs.

May 29 passes, Guyana can be recommended to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), for review by the International Cooperation Review Group (ICRG). Once that is done, this country could be liable to further sanctions, including being put on the international blacklist, having already been blacklisted regionally by CFATF. It remains unclear if Guyana will be able to have an amended AML/CFT Bill passed before CFATF meets next week and several stakeholders posit that this eventuality may very well be unlikely.

CARICOM’s challenging foreign policy options - Communiqué coming on Guyana ministerial meeting

Analysis by Rickey Singh THE strengthening of relations between the Caribbean Community and Cuba was one of the major agenda issues for the two-day meeting of CARICOM Foreign Ministers, which was scheduled to conclude last evening at the Guyana International Conference Centre. In this context, the discrimination in shopping being experienced by Cubans, including diplomats based in some CARICOM states, by the mega U.S. warehouse shopping conglomerate, ‘PriceSmart’, is viewed as a violation of territorial sovereignty, requiring a collective response by the 15-member Community. The Jamaica government has expressed a particular perspective on the contentious issue, and its Foreign Minister, J.J. Nicholson, was expected to call on his colleagues for the matter to be referred to the Community’s Council on Legal Affairs. The intention is to have a collective response that could be forthcoming at this July’s annual Heads of Government Conference, scheduled for Antigua, when a range of trade and diplomatic issues that involve relations with both Cuba and the U.S.A are to be discussed. The outcome of the two-day ministerial meeting, hosted and chaired by Guyana’s Foreign Minister, Carolyn Rodriques-Birkett, are to be reflected in the official communiqué expected last evening or today. The 17th meeting of the Community’s Foreign Ministers got underway on Tuesday with a range of key recommendations for consideration involving trade and other relations with Britain, Cuba, the European Union and The Dominican Republic, as well as an overdue requested meeting with the U.S. President, Barack Obama. The Community’s desire for a summit in Washington with President Obama was known since his first term, but has been made more specific following his second-term victory

in 2012. Now the Foreign Ministers are set to recommend a new initiative for such a meeting with the U.S. President in 2015, aware that his second term ends in 2016. An unstated problem by either side in failure to date for such a summit (which was the norm during the era from President Bill Clinton, starting with an historic meeting with Caribbean leaders in Barbados) is said to be related to the Obama administration’s failure to come to terms with CARICOM’s uncompromising friendship with Cuba that does not sit comfortably with Washington on issues like human rights. The Council of Foreign Ministers were expected to advance arrangements for decisions by Heads of Government at their coming summit in Antigua on the modalities of deepening ‘cooperation arrangements’ between Cuba and CARICOM . UK/CARIBBEAN FORUM The arrangements include a nine-point memorandum on varying initiatives identified by Cuba to be addressed at the Fifth CARICOM-Cuba Summit, scheduled for Havana in December this year, and hosted by President Raoul Castro. In terms of trade, aid and cooperation initiatives in general with the United Kingdom -- which remains a major development partner of this Region, though with comparative declining influence -- the coming Eight UK/Caribbean Forum, scheduled for June 16-17 in London, seems set to engage in critical appraisals on how to make this co-operation mechanism more meaningful, and at the same time deal with a new political irritant. The latter relates to The Dominican Republic’s membership in the UK-Caribbean Forum, against the backdrop of the disharmony that has erupted between CARICOM and the government in Santo Domingo over the controversial legislation approved by its Constitutional Court that has effectively

denationalised an estimated 250,000 immigrants, primarily of Haitian descent. Deemed to be unmistakably racist in character, failure to correct this horrendous social/political problem would clearly be a major barrier in CARICOM/DR relations via the CARIFORUM group of states in their current structured relations with the European Union (EU), of which Britain is an influential player. Since an adjustment by the DR in favour of a relevant amendment to the controversial “citizenship” status would be essential for CARICOM’s cooperation in doing business with that Spanish-speaking nation, next month’s Eighth UK-Caribbean Forum is faced with a major challenge to make essential progress. NO SOMERSAULT Simply put, CARICOM cannot be seen as somersaulting on its clearly defined principled stand in opposing a racist-based law in the denial of citizenship of more than a quarter-million immigrants, the majority of them black and Haitians, to simply carry on with “business as usual” within the framework of what exists as the “UK-Caribbean Forum”. Incidentally, at this Forum next month, the UK government of Prime Minister, David Cameron, is expected to engage in some diplomatic lobbying ahead of plans to win support for its proposed candidate as new Secretary-General of the London-based Commonwealth Secretariat, Guyanese-born Baroness Valerie Amos. This is quite an intriguing development. For CARICOM, therefore, now in its 47th year, it seems confronted with a slippery foreign policy road. But the record should confirm that for all of its mix of pluses and minuses, it has done reasonably well when compared with others of today’s bigger, if not necessarily more experienced, regional economic integration movements.

Felix, Nandlall in Parliament exchange over Rodney COI By Vanessa Narine

on the Commission’s proceedings has now transcended to Parliament.

A PARTNERSHIP for National Unity (APNU) Member of Parliament (MP), Winston Felix, yesterday charged, in the National Assembly, that the effective functioning of the Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry (COI) is constrained because witnesses can “dream up anything” in their testimony. However, Attorney-General (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs Anil Nandlall pointed out that the immunity granted to witnesses who testify before the Commission extends only to acts they may have committed relative to the death of Rodney. He said the law of perjury is very much applicable and witnesses are in no way allowed to lie to the Commission, as it relates to the circumstances surrounding Rodney’s death. But despite the clarification, Felix maintained that he stands by his comments. Speaking to the Guyana Chronicle after the exchange in the House, Nandlall stated that the “strategy of attack”

DISPARAGING REMARKS He said:“Today you heard Mr. Felix making very disparaging remarks about the Commission, which included a contention that the law of perjury is not applicable to the Commission. “This is a complete misrepresentation. The law of perjury is applicable to the Commission in full force. “From the inception, the APNU took a position that they will not support the Walter Rodney Commission and that they will not participate in the COI. “They are also doing everything they can possibly do to denigrate and attack the integrity of the COI. As the evidence is unfolding, it continues to point an accusatory finger in the direction of the PNC (People’s National Congress),” he added. The admissibility of evidence has been a sore point for the PNC from the start of the tribunal’s hearings and Party

Chairman, Basil Williams, was admonished during one of the sessions last month. Williams, who sits on the legal team representing the Party’s interest at the COI into the 1980 death of Dr. Rodney, had charged that Guyana’s laws were suspended to facilitate the process and that “anything goes in this Commission.” Commissioner Seenath Jairam said, though, that he personally took umbrage to that statement as it reflects very badly on the Commissioners. “I think you have not thought through this statement. We have not suspended the laws. We are bound by the laws. You are making a very serious statement. I don’t think you are being fair to us. Speaking for myself, I have not suspended the laws of Guyana. So I want to make that clear to you,” Jairam informed Williams, following one of his repeated objections. Jairam pointed out that a body such as a COI is entitled to make its own rules and that one has to appreciate that the Commissioners are dealing with an incident which occurred many years ago and, hence, information will have to be sifted in order to determine relevance.

Uitvlugt Estate staff down tools over colleagues’ dismissal - GuySuCo counters that sanctions were justified

By Ravin Singh WORKERS of the Uitvlugt Sugar Estate are currently on strike to express displeasure and disagreement at the dismissal of some of their co-workers; but the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) says the workers were dismissed for serious misconduct in the execution of their duties. Uitvlugt Estate workers say that as workers approach retirement age, GuySuCo routinely dismisses them for frivolous reasons. One worker who has been dismissed after more than 39 years in the industry’s employ disclosed that he cannot comprehend the reason for his dismissal. He explained that an extremely dry crop season resulted in approximately 0.1 per cent of ten acres of cane not being adequately planted, and this caused his dismissal from GuySuCo. Another worker explained that he was dismissed because he had erred in signing a payslip for someone who was deceased. He explained that it was both a genuine mistake and a first-time occurrence, and he even assured GuySuCo that he was willing to repay the money, but his request was ignored and his services terminated. A third worker furiously denounced the actions of GuySuCo while accusing the corporation of trying to divest itself of having to pay workers their pension and gratuity. He described himself as a victim of discrimination because he was summoned to present a letter showing cause why he should not be dismissed after he had witnessed a fight in which he did not participate. He questioned whether the corporation had wanted him to close his eyes during the altercation, as he could not help witnessing what was transpiring at the time. Still another worker disclosed that molasses, which is wantonly “wasted” at the facility, was the cause for his dismissal. He revealed that he had taken approximately two pints of molasses up from the floor, and the security stopped and searched him and he was subsequently dismissed, forfeiting some twenty-plus years of continuous employment at the corporation.

He said he was willing to pay for the molasses after he realized it had caused a conflict, but his request to so do was ignored and he was dismissed. While numerous workers vented their disapproval of management’s handling of the various situations, another worker revealed that four bearings, each weighing between 600 and 700 pounds and valued in excess of GY$3M, are currently missing, and no investigation has been initiated in this regard. The workers, moreover, claim that it requires the manpower of between four and five individuals to displace those bearings. “They are trying to stop corruption at the bottom, and we don’t mind; but they need to stop corruption at the top first!” one worker commented. Guyana Sugar Corporation, however, in its statement, described three staff members who were dismissed as junior staff, noting that their dismissals came as a result of serious misconduct in the execution of their duties. According to GuySuCo, the two foremen were detailed to supervise the replacement of dead canes with new sets of canes at De Kendren East, Fields 29-31, in an operation called “supplying”. They began the operation at about 11.00 am, but after three hours of work, the field foremen and the workers detailed on the operation were discovered in a labour lorry travelling home. When questioned by a senior manager, the foremen stated that the work had been done in accordance with the required standard. The manager requested the foremen to return to the fields where the work was done, and it was discovered that not only was the work done in a substandard manner, but payment claimed for the job was above what had been stipulated. GuySuCo maintains that, in accordance with the disciplinary procedure, the foremen were issued with a show-cause letter dated February 4, 2014 and requesting that they show reason in writing, on or before February 8, 2014, why disciplinary action should not be taken against them. In the said letter, it was also stated that if they failed to respond to the alleged infraction, management would proceed to take the appropriate disciplinary action against them.

They refused to respond to the letter, and were consequently summarily dismissed from the employ of GuySuCo on May 13, 2014. “The field supervisor who was required to supervise 12 men in the digging of internal drains at Zeeburg, Fields 62-64, on November 12, 2013 was dismissed too, after a subsequent check of the work revealed that the work was not done to the required standard, and with less than the required output, but payments were made as if the work had been done to required output and standard. “The supervisor too, by letter dated February 27, 2014, was requested to show reason in writing, on or before March 6, 2014, why disciplinary action should not be taken against him; and like the foremen’s letter, he was also advised that if he refused to respond, management would take the appropriate disciplinary action. He refused to respond, and was consequently summarily dismissed on May 13, 2014 for committing a serious misconduct in the execution of his duties,” the workers further explained. Agriculture Minister Dr Leslie Ramsammy, in an interview with this newspaper, noted that he is currently unaware of the situation due to his absence from Georgetown, but maintains that the Government does not support any policy that would seek to dismiss workers for unsubstantial reasons. “Such acts by the private and public sectors and other agencies will never be supported by the Ministry,” Dr Ramsammy assured, while noting that the issue is one of urgency, which he would address soon. The GuySuCo statement disclosed that the corporation has realized that ever since the dismissal of the staff members, approximately half of the junior staff establishment attached to the field and factory has been on strike demanding the reinstatement of their colleagues. As such, through their union, GuyuCo has advised those employees on strike that it would not vary its position in light of the seriousness of the offences allegedly committed by their colleagues, and urged that the workers immediately cease their current strike action.

with the Government Chief Whip, who was Minister of Home Affairs during Felix’ tenure as Commissioner of Police. Teixeira returned, “I will not embarrass you, Mr. Felix; you may not admit it, but we both know; we know what we know, and knew what we knew. Don’t misinform Mr. Granger, because you and I can talk… If there is a Commission of Inquiry, which this Motion is pushing for, I will speak; I will not be constrained.” She added that in calling for a CoI, not only does the scope, in terms of years, need to be expanded, but a clear basis for such an undertaking needs to be outlined. The Government Chief Whip explained that there are domestic remedies available, including the Police Complaints Authority (PCA), the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR), and the courts. Felix, in his contribution to the debate, proceeded to say that contrary to the examples of torture citied by Teixeira, a person can only be tortured if they are “not free” to move. The Government MP debunked this by referring to the definition of torture cited by Granger. POLITICAL TOOL The Attorney-General (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall, expounded on this definition, and stressed that torture is constitutionally wrong and the policies of the current Administration are “deliberate,

systematic, and institutionalized” when it comes to addressing torture. “Our record cannot be credibly questioned by anyone,” he stressed, adding that the move to establish a CoI should not be a move to improve political fortunes. The AG also stated that the motion was “bereft” of supporting data relative to the need to constitute a CoI, a move that is vested in the President of Guyana and should not be invoked flippantly. Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee echoed similar sentiments, and said, “You are pushing at an open door.” He further explained that steps are being taken to improve the mechanisms set up to address allegations of “police excesses” by citizens. Rohee also questioned the desire of the Opposition to “eke out” political mileage from the establishment of such a commission. The Home Affairs Minister made it clear that reforms are being taken, contrary to Granger’s assertions, and changes are happening, with more to come. “As far as I am concerned, the motion is a motion that has sinister motives,” he said. APNU’s James Bond, in his contribution to the debate, stated that the bottom line of the issue at hand is that the violation of the rights of any human being must be given the utmost priority. Moses Nagamootoo of The Alliance For Change (AFC) also spoke on the Motion, stating that incidents of torture by members of the police force are a worrisome development, and regardless under which administration it occurred, torture

has no brand. “Torture is torture,” he posited.

PROVISIONS Considering this, the provisions of the motion stipulate as follows: “Whereas the Constitution of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana prescribes, at Article 141, that ‘No person shall be subjected to torture or to inhuman or degrading punishment or other treatment; “And whereas it has been widely reported that persons were tortured by members of the Guyana Police Force between the years 2006 and 2013, inclusive. “And whereas in accordance with the Commission of Inquiry Act, Chapter 19:03, “The President may issue a commission appointing one or more commissioners and authorising such commissioner or commissioners to inquire into any matter in which an inquiry would, in the opinion of the President, be for the public welfare. “Be it resolved that the National Assembly expresses its sympathy with the victims of torture; and be it further resolved that the National Assembly calls upon the President of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, in accordance with the Commission of Inquiry Act, Chapter 19:03, to appoint a commission of inquiry to inquire into the torture of persons by members of the Guyana Police Force, and to make recommendations to prevent a recurrence of such torture.” The Motion was passed with the unanimous support of the combined Opposition, while Government MPs voted against the it.



GTM records net profit after tax of $31.4M, in spite of challenges By Michel Outridge

THE Guyana and Trinidad Life Insurance Company Limited (GTM) has recorded a net profit, after tax, of $31.4M, Chairman R. L. Singh told the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday at the Georgetown Club, Camp Street, Georgetown, He said further that GTM had achieved a surplus of revenue over expenditure of $187M in 2013, compared to $184M for 2012, notwithstanding a number of challenges. Chairman Singh told the AGM that the year 2013 was another challenging one for GTM Life Insurance Company, particularly in the Eastern Caribbean territories in which the company operates. However, the company saw a 12.5% growth in premiums net of reinsurance and 10.38% growth in total revenue amounting to $1.45B, offset by expenditures of $1.26B, resulting in a surplus of revenue over expenditure of $187M compared to $184M for 2012. He added that after taking into account provisions for increase in policyholders’ liabilities of $156M, the company recorded a net profit after tax of $31.4M. The Chairman noted that the adoption of new reporting requirements under international standards and practices requires that changes in actuarial liabilities must now be recorded as an expenditure in the Statement of Profit and Loss and Other Comprehensive Income under the new line item ‘Net Movement in policyholders’ liability’. Singh pointed out that in Guyana, notwithstanding increased competition, the company continues to plough ahead with the sale of 811 of the 1,460 new individual life policies sold with annualised premiums of $61.33M. He added that the continued fall in interest rates on investments, including fixed deposits, treasury bills and saving accounts has had a negative impact on the sale of Universal Life policies, but this was offset by an increase in sale of the Futura, a fixed-term policy. Singh stated that the actuarial valuation done at the end of 2013 indicates that the company’s total surplus increased from $2B at the end of 2012 to $2.4B, despite the decline in viable medium to long-term investment opportunities and interest rates. The Chairman said that the company’s Solvency Ratio, which is one of the ratios used to measure the company’s ability to meet long-term debts, has increased from 315.5% at the end of 2012, to 325.8% at the end of 2013. This ratio is significantly above the 150% required.

National violence prevention committee holds first meeting THE Home Affairs Ministry on Monday convened the first meeting of a national committee that will be addressing the issue of violence. This committee has its genesis from the recommendations that were made at the National

Conference for the Prevention of Interpersonal Violence held in November last year. Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee, said the committee has received the full support at the level of Cabinet. It comprises rep-

resentatives of the Ministries of Home Affairs, Labour, Human Services and Social Security, Health, Amerindian Affairs, Culture, Youth and Sport, Finance, and Legal Affairs. Additionally, faith-based organisations, the private sector, non-governmental organisations, and youth and

women’s organisations are also fully represented on the committee. The Home Affairs Minister said that when it comes to cases of domestic violence, gang related violence, interpersonal violence and violence in schools, the public normally turns to the police because they are responsible

for law enforcement and violence of any type falls under the category of crime. The National Conference for the Prevention of Interpersonal Violence, which saw the participation of a wide cross-section of stakeholders, resulted in a total of 58 recommendations which the national committee will

be combing through in an effort to formulate a plan of action. Minister Rohee explained that subsequently, a Management Committee will be established to coordinate the work of the National Committee. Apart from being a personal and social problem, violence is also a public security concern since it impacts negatively on the social order and safety of citizens. At last year’s conference, President Donald Ramotar explained that while the State has a general responsibility for the preservation of law and order and for the protection of its citizens; this issue can by no means be the exclusive preserve of Government.

Rodrigues-Birkett outlines top priority, central plank of Regional foreign policy By Vanessa Narine EXTERNAL trade among Caribbean Community (Caricom) countries is a top priority and central plank in the Region's foreign policy, new Chair of the Council for Foreign and Community Relations (COFCOR), Guyana Foreign Affairs Minister, Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett, said Tuesday. Speaking at the opening

of the Council’s 17th meeting at the Guyana International Conference Centre, Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown, she said: “Several areas of great concern have arisen and require our urgent and focused attention. “The current arrangements with traditional trading partners have presented us with serious challenges relating to reciprocity, stringent conditionalities of reduced development sup-

port and growing non-tariff barriers.” The COFCOR Chair pointed out that Caricom’s member states continue to make the dedicated effort to implement the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) with Europe. However, she said that countries are finding out that this is a demanding task for small developing economies in the Region. Rodrigues-Birkett said:

“Never mind that the Caribbean remained on course as the only ACP sub-region to successfully conclude the negotiation with Europe on schedule in 2007 and the only one to so do to date. BEING GRADUATED “No sooner was the ink dried than we find ourselves being graduated to more developed country status to lose access to much needed development resources and the market access under the EPA is faced with many hurdles for our fledgling business communities, including tedious visa requirements.” According to her, these high levels of debt and graduation from concessional financing and development aid is based on an “arbitrary categorisation” of small developing States as upper middle income countries. She added that this categorisation is done using Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita, a system that ignores significant vulnerability indices, which paint the true picture of the economy. The COFCOR Chair also addressed ongoing negotiations with Canada for a Trade and Development Agreement and said the Region has shown “immense flexibility” and remains committed to achieving a successful conclusion. “It is true that, for most of our member states and for the Region as a whole, the United States is still our largest trading partner, in terms of value and volume of trade. However, we cannot assume that the current arrangements will remain sufficient and resilient,” she said. Rodrigues-Birkett called for CARICOM Member States to “engage and pursue” initiatives to improve trade, including through the maximum use of the Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA). Caricom and the United States signed a Trade and Investment Framework

Agreement (TIFA) last May in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. PRACTICAL STRATEGIES It is expected to drive strengthened trade and investment ties between Caricom and the U.S. as it would serve as a mechanism for the two sides to develop practical strategies on a wide range of trade, investment and economic cooperation issues. This is seen as essential to spurring economic devel-

Foreign Affairs Minister Carolyn Rodrigues-Birkett opment and diversification of the Region and to contributing to improvement in the well-being of our citizens. The implementation of the agreement will be executed under the mechanism of the Caricom-U.S. Trade and Investment Council which will be led by a nominee of the Caricom Chair and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (U.S.T.R). The TIFA, which is the result of a revision of an Agreement signed in 1991, takes account of the multilateral trading environment created by the WTO, as well as changes in the regional environment brought on by the implementation of the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME). An Initial Action Agenda, which was annexed to the Agreement, set out the areas for attention which

include matters relating to the WTO; bilateral trade and investment arrangements; cooperation in regional and multilateral areas; support for regional integration; cooperation to promote and respect fundamental labour rights, social protection and workforce development and the facilitation of trade and investment opportunities. DIGITAL DIVIDE In addition, the Agreement establishes the framework for the discussion of issues to address the digital divide through the promotion of innovation and the dissemination of technology for increasing competitiveness, job creation, economic development and trade, as well as for discussing U.S. trade and investment-related legislation which have extra-territorial impact. Specific examples of legislation in this regard are the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the New U.S. Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA). There are also other issues of critical importance to Caricom, particularly with respect to export development, which, through engagement with Representatives and Officials of the U. S. Administration and the Congress, mutually acceptable outcomes would be achieved. Among those of critical and urgent importance to Caricom are the threat faced by its exports of rum in the U.S market and the U.S./Antigua and Barbuda cross-border gambling services dispute. In addition, the agreement will allow for monitoring of developments in the context of the U. S. President’s 2013 Trade Policy Agenda. Signing of the revised TIFA also signalled the formal launch of the revitalised Trade and Investment Council (TIC) which would be essential for Caricom and the U.S. to engage in the areas mentioned.

Five Guyanese chefs to feature at Jamaican food festival this weekend

By Rebecca Ganesh-Ally

FIVE Guyanese chefs are slated to showcase a range of dishes at the Jamaican Epicurean Escape in Jamaica on May 24 and 25, Fly Jamaica Airways announced yesterday at a press briefing at their head office in Ogle, East Coast Demerara. The Guyanese chefs, their assistants and six chefs from New York will be attending this festival, an annual gastronomic extravaganza, courtesy of Fly Jamaica. The five Guyanese from various restaurants in Guyana are: Nesa Walker from Oasis Café; John Bettencourt of Bettencourt Food Establishment; Dane Henry from Carnegie; Bharratt Puppyal from Princess Hotel Guyana; and Dustin Dalgetty from

We eat many of the same foods; it is only that we prepare them differently. Our Guyanese chefs are looking forward to working at the festival and the opportunity it will present for them to interact with other chefs.” She explained that they picked the foods that they would like to have the chefs prepare and this is because they wanted to have foods that are basic to the Region’s culture. Some of the foods to be prepared at the festival are ‘cook-up rice’, dhal, coconut choka, boulanger choka, pepper pot, and metemgee, among others. Reece noted also that on numerous occasions her flight crew would take delicacies from Guyana to Jamaica, and they would be enthusiastic about their comments and compliments. The airline will soon be in-


He also encouraged and congratulated the participants and indicated that they are not only going to impress persons with their culinary skills but they are also tourism ambassadors of Guyana. “With food we have a competitive advantage here in Guyana because we are an agricultural-based Region and our importation of food is low,” Haralsingh said. He reiterated that the Ministry of Tourism and GTA have organised the Guyana Festival slated for the August 8-10, 2014 and within these three days there will also be a cook-off done by various ethnic groups across Guyana.

forgotten, and late last week the HJ family made its first set of donations toward this undertaking. DONATIONS Campbellville Secondary School and St. Joseph High School each received a table

tennis set, while the Mercury Fast Laners Track and Field Club received a cheque for two hundred thousand dollars, and the Beacon Football Club was given $90,000 to purchase sneakers. The Keem Foundation umbrella is a fund which was started following the story of six-year-old Zeniha Loo, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor that left her unable to walk, eat or speak. Her parents, Roger Loo and

Natase Mc Calman, had appealed to the public for assistance in raising funds to have the child undergo surgery. Hits and Jams Entertainment had supported this cause and developed the ‘Zeniha Telethon’. However, despite these efforts, little Zeniha succumbed to the tumour. This cause is held close to the hearts of the HJ team, especially its CEO, who developed the foundation

in honour of his late son, Rakeem Rahul Alphonso Ferguson, who passed away after a battle with leukemia at the tender age of ten. With funds raised all year round, inclusive of donations from Corporate Guyana and other persons coupled with material contributions from companies and individuals, HJ utilises Rakeem’s memory to give back to children and families all year round.

New youth group formed to raise the bar in music, other arts

By Alex Wayne A GROUP of luminaries in the creative arts has formed a musical and cultural organisation named ENIGMA with the focus being set on raising the bar in local music and other related arts. And thus far, ENIGMA is doing well, from all indications. Speaking to the group’s CEO, Lyn-Ann Medford, at the Tower Hotel recently, this publication was informed that ENIGMA comprises some fifteen executive members and thirty volunteer members, and all have ‘designated duties.’ The public response to this initiative has been considerably positive, according to Medford, and the group’s members are earnestly soliciting sponsorship from donor agencies and corporate society to assist in functioning of the group and development of the arts. To date, the group’s members have already secured a few overseas sponsors, but the input of individuals and businesses here in Guyana is needed to make for the group’s success. Medford said plans are in place to stage the ‘GYAF-Guyana Youth Arts Festival this year from July 11 to 13, while the second segment of this initiative is

billed for this December 12 to 14. This event, the group’s premier feature, is linked to the International Youth Arts Festival in London, when youths from all over the world meet to share and showcase their talents. ENIGMA will be selecting a team of fifteen young artistes to represent Guyana at the arts festival in London. That aside, there is a long list of events planned for the year 2014, and there is every intention to make these events annual functions. The ENIGMA Edutainment Group is a substitute for mindless entertainment, advocating meaningful ways of having fun through the use of unique avenues, whilst pushing positive messages to create positive youth lifestyle changes. Amongst the group’s plans for the near future are workshops and exhibitions designed to sharpen youths’ talents and entrepreneurial skills, besides fairs, concerts and seminars, awareness campaigns, health campaigns and educational drives. On the platter also are plans for media and social networking, and overseas participation in various awareness drives and tourism-related activities. The group staged its ‘Way Back When May Pole

GTA to host ‘Independence Brunch’ on May 26 THE Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) will host its first ever ‘Independence Brunch’ on May 26 at Parliament Gardens, opposite Public Buildings on High Street, Georgetown. The occasion will afford guests the opportunity to have a real Guyanese meal and also foster a sense of national pride among fellow Guyanese, according to GTA Communications Officer, Ramesh Sukhdeo. He said the concept was brainstormed and decided upon since from all indications it has not been done before. The buffet style service will include a variety of local dishes, such as bake and saltfish, ‘chunkay’ provisions and pepperpot and local fruit juices, among other delicacies. Sukhdeo said there will be live entertainment as well, with steel pan music by the Guyana Police Force (GPF). Tickets for this event cost $5,000 each and can be secured at the GTA Office, Sophia Exhibition Site, Greater Georgetown, or via telephone numbers 219-0094/96. Tickets will be sold also at the entrance to the venue.

Fair and Concert’ on May 10, and sources say the activity was a success. ENIGMA’s ‘Positive Vibes Walks’ are billed for May 21 to 26, 2014; while the ‘GYAT IT OFF’ television programme will kick off on May 17, 2014. The group will begin its ‘School Grades Campaign’ in December of this year, while the ‘Youth Entrepreneurial Exhibition’ will be hosted from December 12 to 14, 2014. The group’s ‘We Are Here’ charity drive will begin on December 12, 2014, and be taken all across

Guyana. Amongst ENIGMA’s celebrated list of members are the reigning Miss Guyana Talented Teen Queen, Ms Tiffany Bonner; the reigning

Carib Soca Monarch, Kwasi ‘Ace’ Edmondson; the Enigma Dance Company; the Crystallite Dancers; the All Steppers Dance Group, and many others.

Persons or organisations desirous of assisting the group in any form or kind are urged to call Ms. Medford on telephone numbers 604- 0459, or 2260012.

New campaign being launched against HIV/AIDS

THE USAID (United States Agency for International Development)-supported ‘Advancing Partners and Communities’ (APC) Project, in collaboration with the Guyana Business Coalition against HIV and AIDS (GBCHA), will today launch a campaign to expand and strengthen collaboration between Guyana’s business sector and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) responding to the twin diseases. The Joint APC-GBCHA drive is being undertaken with the aim of expanding and reinforcing partnerships involving businesses and NGOs. The exercise will kick off at 17:00 hrs from the Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) Building on High Street, Kingston, Georgetown. The forum is being hosted under the theme: ‘Working Together…Achieving Zero: Zero New Infections •Zero AIDS-Related Deaths • Zero Stigma’. Meanwhile, the APC/ GBCHA coalition has announced an impressive decline in the rate of new HIV infections at the end of 2013, under Guyana’s Prevention and Treatment Programme.

For the year under review, there were 758 recorded new infections, as compared to 1,258 in 2006. There has also been a marked reduction in the number of AIDS-related deaths, a GBCHA release said. The coalition has rated this trend impressive under Guyana’s Prevention and Treatment Programme. It added that these gains in controlling the epidemic would not have been possible without the combined effort of Government, the NGO and business sectors and development partners. ABOUT APC-GBCHA The joint APC-GBCHA release emphasised: “They have shown international donors that the country is ready to go the distance with less donor financing.” In the face of declining external funding, Guyana’s business and NGO sectors are being called on to expand and strengthen partnerships in support of zero new HIV infections, the release said. About Advancing Partners and Communities (APC) it said: APC is a five-

year project funded by USAID’s Office of Population and Reproductive Health and implemented by JSI Research & Training Institute Inc., in partnership with Family Health International (FHI) 360. APC’s core funding covers grants management and capacity building for NGOs providing services for HIV prevention, care and support. In Guyana, APC supports eleven NGOs across eight of the 10 Administrative Regions, Artistes in Direct Support, Agape Network, Comforting Hearts, the FACT Group, G-Plus, Hope for All, Hope Foundation, Lifeline Counselling, Linden Care, United Bricklayers and Youth Challenge Guyana. About Guyana Business Coalition against HIV and AIDS, GBCHA is a registered non-profit organisation which works with the Business Sector, the Ministry of Health, International Partners and Community Based Organisations to mobilise resources to assist in the National HIV/AIDS response. Since launching in May 2008, GBCHA expanded its mandate to address general health and wellness including Gender

Based Violence. Through human and other resources provided by GBCHA

members and partners, the organisation seeks to reduce the stigma and dis-

crimination associated with HIV/AIDS and to prevent new infections.

Crime Chief: Sheema Mangar murder probe not closed - although trail may go cold for some time By Michel Outridge REGARDING the Sheema Mangar case, Crime Chief Leslie James has said that like every murder investigation, sometimes the trail goes cold for some time, but that doesn’t mean it is closed, recognising that the family needs closure. For now, however, the probe has been temporarily suspended but they are in talks with Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Ali-Hack, on a way forward. After the killing of the former Demerara Bank staffer on September 10, 2010, potential evidence was dispatched overseas to be tested. Mangar was at North Road and Camp Street, in Georgetown, awaiting transportation when her Blackberry cell phone was snatched from her. The 21-year-old woman gave chase after the snatcher who entered a motor car that drove off and she placed herself in front of the vehicle in an effort to stop it but was run over and dragged several feet before it sped away. Public-spirited citizens rushed her to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPH), from where she was transferred to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital and died there the next day. Initially, two suspects had been held but were, later, released. However, investigators took parts of the retrieved fabric she was wearing from under the getaway car for examination. CLOSE INTEREST On May 23, 2013, the Ministry of Home Affairs, in a press release, promised to maintain a close interest in the matter, adding that it shares the sentiments of the grieving parents and relatives and wished to see it brought to a closure to the satisfaction of the Mangar family. “The ministry is of the view that, by now, more progress should have been made in this matter and maintains that this crime would be, ultimately, solved by the Guyana Police Force as has been done with so many other serious crimes,” the ministry said. The ministry said it reconfirmed that two submissions were made to the Barbados Forensic Laboratory, on NoMurdered: vember 5, 2010 and August Sheema Mangar 30, 2011, respectively. A report on the first submission was received in August 2011 when a GPF representative travelled to Barbados to make a second submission. According to the ministry, it was only recently revealed that the Barbados Forensic Laboratory recommenced operations in late 2011, having been closed for repairs from 2009. But it continued to accept submissions. ‘We must note that in all murder cases, the police would identify the ‘year and day rule.’ He explained that whoever might have committed those crimes/murders, the day on which they are arrested and the date on which the offence was allegedly committed, arriving at ‘the year and day’. He stated that like every murder investigation sometimes the trail goes cold for sometime but that doesn’t mean it is closed recognising that the family needs closure. Former Crime Chief, Seelall Persaud, now Acting Commissioner of Police, had reported to this publication that nothing new has surfaced, to date, since the November 26, 2013 disclosure, that the Guyana Police Force (GPF) was in receipt of the results of a DNA sample, sent to Barbados for testing, earlier in that year, to aid in the murder probe of bank employee, Sheema Mangar. He had stated that following the negative match, they do not have any suspect but, once new information is received, the investigations will continue.

Rohee: Bradbury and LEAD project put on hold --he doesn’t have a work permit --his extension of stay has not been granted By Telesha Ramnarine RESIDENT Country Director of the International Republican Institute (IRI), Glen Bradbury, whose work permit and extension of stay had been revoked recently, remains on hold just as the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Leadership and Democracy (LEAD) project. “The project has been put on hold, so he is on hold too. He doesn’t have a work permit; his extension of stay

has not been granted. So he is on hold too just like the project,” People’s Progressive Party (PPP) General Secretary, Clement Rohee said Monday. Speaking at the Party’s weekly press briefing at Freedom House, in Georgetown, Rohee said Bradbury is still in Guyana as getting him out of the country would be taking the matter to a different level. “We haven’t moved to that level as yet. Right now he is on pause, on hold.” Bradbury was in charge of implementing the LEAD

project and has been in Guyana since September 25, 2013. At an earlier press conference, Rohee had said of Bradbury: “Bradbury has engaged himself in the internal political affairs of Guyana. His arrogance, deceitful and counter-productive approaches would not be entertained by any self-respecting nation. The PPP has found that Bradbury has been engaging institutions without their approval. He has also been misrepresenting reality and abusing long-established protocols.” Rohee also noted the party’s disappointment that the U.S. Embassy would associate itself with Bradbury, who has exposed himself to the “disgust” of stakeholders. Meanwhile, in a statement, the United States Embassy had said: “The decision to revoke Mr. Bradbury’s permit is contrary to our understanding of the Government of Guyana’s commitment to review together the LEAD programme and to the spirit of the discussions proposed by the Government of Guyana itself.”


Aries March 21 - April 19

Your lighthearted social demeanour could find a hard time fitting in with the general mood of the crowd today. You might find that you’re better off simply locating a quiet place and retreating from the group for a little while. Read a good book or magazine. Plan for the days ahead and let your mind prepare for the things you have in store.

Taurus April 20 - May 20

You should be able to put on your famous smile this morning and keep it on all day. Advertise your beautiful soul to the world. If other people are sad, it’s fine to sympathise, but don’t bear their ailments for them. Keep up a bit of a shield to protect yourself from this energy. At the same time, you want to keep a window open so other people can see you from the inside.

Gemini May 21 - June 21

Chances are that there will be an emotional bite to the day that might put something of a hostile tone on anything you encounter. The key is to not get so fixed in your ways that you turn away from new experiences. You’ll find that interaction with others is exactly what’s needed in order to keep things in balance. The masculine and feminine sides of your being are coming together quite nicely.

Cancer June 22 - July 22

Your mood should be quite good today, and you’ll be well supported by the people around you. The key is to bring intense feelings directly to the table as you experience them. You’ll find that other people share similar emotions at this time. The combination of energies between you and those close to you is simply magical. Join together with others on elaborate projects and special events.

Leo July 23 - August 22

Remember that it’s OK to have a little downtime. Don’t feel like you have to always be up and on stage. Take some time to be mellow and quiet. Today is one of those intense days in which you feel overpowered by the energy around you. Don’t resist this feeling. Sink into your emotions and experience them for the power that they can bring to your overall psyche.

Virgo August 23 - September 22

This is your day to shine. Everyone else may be squirming under the prevailing energy of the day, but you should be perfectly equipped to deal with any events that come your way. Despite the intense fluctuations in your general mood, things are on the upswing. You’ll find that matters will eventually come around your way. All the hard work you’ve put in lately is starting to pay off.

Libra September 23 - October 22

Give thanks to the people who are most precious to you. You’ll find that words cut to the core issues much more easily. Stabilise your strong emotions and use them as fuel for you endeavours. The key today is to remember those who have helped you along the way. Everyone is a sensitive and loving individual, so treat them as such. Have fun with the people all around you.

Scorpio October 23 - November 21

Connect with the stabilising force of the day. It’s important for you to keep at least one foot on the ground, as powerful and intense emotions are likely to try to take over the scene. This is a good time to do things with passion. Don’t hold back. Whatever you do today, you need to give it all or nothing. There is no room for any half-hearted attempts.

Sagittarius November 22 - December 21

Your strong opinions might come into conflict with strong emotions today. Be aware that fountains of intensity are likely to spring from you as if you were a bottomless well. Realise that you might need pay less attention to your logic today and concentrate on your heart. It could be hard to reason with people. If your heart doesn’t support what you say, you might as well not say it.

Capricorn December 22 - January 19

Consciously, realise that you’re someone unique and special. Remember this through the day and let your actions reflect this affirmation. There’s a rather distinct intensity to the day that might cause others to be on edge. Don’t be disrupted if there are people freaking out in your world. The good news is that you should be able to handle this intense blast of emotion easily. Emotions are your forte!

Aquarius January 20 - February 18

The intensity of the day could work for you in one of two ways. You can either be depressed and weighed down by the intense emotionalism that’s likely to well up, or you can take this incredible intensity and put it to good use. The choice is yours. Realise that any action you take is going to be highly charged with feelings. Likewise, others will be extra sensitive about any move you make.

Pisces February 19 - March 20

Combine today’s grounding force with a bit of emotional intensity from your heart to create a powerful combination of spirit that will surely make an impact on whatever you contact. The key is to not take yourself too seriously. If you do, there might be incidents that jump up to give you a thump on the head, reminding you that you’re just as human as the rest of us.

James, Wade spark Heat win over fired-up Pacers By Steve Keating INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana (Reuters) - Beating the Miami Heat once is difficult enough but taking two playoff g a m e s i n a ro w f ro m the defending National Basketball Association champions is mission impossible as the Indiana Pacers found out on Tuesday. Dormant most of the night, LeBron James sprung to life in the final quarter scoring 12 of his 22 points, while Dwyane Wade dropped 10 of his team-high 23 to lift the Heat to a battling 87-83 victory and even the Eastern Conference final at a game apiece. Imposing their will on the contest, James and Wade combined for 22 points in the final quarter, including Miami’s final 20 points over the last 7:51 of the game. “That’s what it is about, it isn’t going to be pretty,” said James. “It’s never pretty basketball in the Eastern conference, it’s about who can sustain runs. “Who can get the defensive stops, who cannot turn the ball over and who can get great shots and I think we did that in the fourth. “I needed to do something in fourth...I needed to make a few buckets in the fourth quarter and was able to come through for us.

Dwayne Wade “We’re never satisfied until we close out a series so we have a lot of work to do.” The best-of-seven series now shifts to South Beach for Game Three on Saturday, giving the Pacers plenty of time to ponder a missed opportunity. After rolling to an impressive win over the Heat in Game One on Sunday, the Pacers finally flashed the form that had been expected from the East’s top seed as Indiana looked ready to seize control of the series. But the Heat have developed a habit of bouncing back after a playoff loss and continued that trend at a raucous Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

With the victory, the Heat have now gone 40 playoff games without suffering consecutive losses, a run that stretches back to the 2012 East final against the Boston Celtics. Since James, Wade and Chris Bosh joined forces in Miami, four times the Heat have lost the opening game of a playoff series and each time recovered to win the series. “It’s not demoralising; we know they are great, great players (James and Wade),” said Pacers coach Frank Vogel. “They’re a great team. They are the champs. “That’s what we expect from those guys because they have been there before. “So we’ve just got to

respond.” The Pacers, who sputtered through the opening two rounds of playoffs needing seven games to eliminate Atlanta and six to see off Washington, were firing on all cylinders in Game One against Miami on Sunday and backed by seething arena and carried that momentum into Tuesday charging to an 18-10 lead. But there was no panic on the Miami bench as the Heat, making their fourth straight appearance in the East final, patiently chipped away at the Indiana advantage, trimming the deficit to a single point at the end of the opening quarter. The Heat continued their surge into the second taking a 41-37 lead into the intermission, despite a modest six-point first-half contribution from James. Indiana threatened to pull away again in the third but could not hold off the Heat as James and Wade took control. “This is a hotly contested series, two teams that defend, physical and you just have to keep on staying with it,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. “He (James) wasn’t in a rhythm through the first 30 minutes of the game but he found a way to break free ... at this point it is just whatever it takes, however you can contribute to help us win.”

English FA imposes worldwide betting ban on players LONDON, England (Reuters) - All professional players in English football will be banned from betting on matches anywhere in the world, the Football Association said yesterday. The ruling, which will come into force from August 1, was ratified at the governing body’s Annual General Meeting and covers players from the Premier League

Andros Townsend down to the non-league Football Conference and its lower regional divisions. “Participants covered

by the ban will be prohibited from betting, either directly or indirectly, on any football match or competition that takes place anywhere in the world,” the FA said in a statement. The ban also includes betting on any other football-related matters. “For example, the transfer of players, employment of managers or team selection,” the FA

said. FA rules currently forbid players from betting on matches in which they are involved or that they can influence. Among players found to have breached the betting rules are Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend and Stoke City’s Cameron Jerome,who was on loan from Crystal Palace last season.

Simmons gives Mumbai slim chance with first century of IPL-7 CHANDIGARHLN, India (CMC) - In-form West Indies batsman Lendl Simmons smashed the first century of the Indian Premier League (IPL) yesterday to give Mumbai Indians a slim chance of advancing to the playoff stage of the competition. Simmons played shots all over the park to complete an even century, leading a run chase that swept Mumbai to a seven-wicket victory over Kings XI Punjab, the current table toppers. The attacking Trinidadian batsman hit 14 fours and two sixes from the 61 balls he faced to carry Mumbai safely to 159 after Punjab scored 156 for eight at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium. On his way, Simmons, who played a number of cut shots, accounted for 55 of the opening partnership’s 68. Simmons also unleashed an array of slog-sweeps and lashes down the ground to maintain a run-rate of nearly 10 for the majority of their innings. Mumbai could have secured victory earlier but delayed the momentum to ensure Simmons moved into triple digits. Once the single was taken his countryman Kieron Pollard immediately slammed the final ball of the 18th over into the crowd beyond long-on. Simmons unbeaten century that inspired Mumbai’s fifth win in seven matches in India, lifted them to as high as fifth in the table. Despite beating the most dominant team twice this season, Mumbai still need to win their two remaining games by a considerable margin to stay alive. Earlier, Kings XI Punjab recovered after a middle-order collapse to post a competitive total. Skipper George Bailey top-scored with 39 while Manan Vohra and Shaun Marsh contributed 36 and 30 respectively. Kings XI were strongly placed at 90 for two after the first 10 overs but a batting collapse ensued after West Indian seamer Krishmar Santokie bowled Marsh to finish with one wicket for 40 runs

Chris Cairns denies being ’Player X’ By Greg Stutchbury

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Reuters) - The International Cricket Council (ICC) will investigate how evidence given to a match-fixing probe had been leaked to the media and take action against anyone employed by them if involved, chief executive Dave Richardson said yesterday. The latest match-fixing scandal broke last December when New Zealand media reported that three former international cricketers had been linked to an investigation by the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Security Unit (ACSU) into alleged match-fixing. Last week, British newspapers published excerpts of confidential statements from former New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent, who had earlier said he was cooperating with the ACSU, and current captain Brendon McCullum. Richardson said the ICC “deeply regretted” the leaks and reiterated that McCullum was not under investigation. “We are taking all steps available to us to urgently investigate how certain information in the form of statements has come to find its way into the media,” he said in a statement. “Of course, we recognise that this is a deeply concerning development for the stakeholders in the fight against corruption in the sport of cricket, and we wish to emphasise that Brendon McCullum is not under investigation in this matter.”

… Daryl Tuffey says he is clean

Former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns New Zealand Cricket said earlier this week they were disappointed that McCullum’s statements had been made public and would ask the world governing body to investigate the source of the leaks. Richardson told Radio New Zealand yesterday that the investigation into the leaks had already been launched but said it was premature to suggest they had come from within the ICC. “This is an investigation that crosses three or four jurisdictions and involves liaison with other stakeholders, law enforcement agencies, players who have been interviewed,” Richardson said. “Of course we are devastated with these leaks, but it is premature to say exactly where that leak came from and whether anyone involved in the ACSU was involved. “But certainly if we are able to find out where the leak came from that person will be removed from the situation.” PLAYER X The statements by Vincent and McCullum de-

tailed being approached by a former international player about the possibility of match-fixing. The excerpts of McCullum’s statements identified the former international as ‘Player X’. The New Zealand Herald newspaper then identified ‘Player X’ as former New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns, who has consistently denied being involved in any match-fixing. “I am aware that former cricketer Lou Vincent and current New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum have made a range of allegations against a cricketer dubbed Player X,” Cairns said in a statement to Fairfax Media. “It is well known that the ICC/ACSU has been investigating allegations of corruption and my name has been linked by others to these allegations. I am being asked whether I am Player X. “Based on the limited information I have received during this investigation, I believe it is being alleged that I am that player. These allegations against me are a complete lie.” Cairns, who won a defamation case against India cricket administrator Lalit Modi for making similar accusations on Twitter in 2010, added he had yet to be interviewed by the ACSU and not had the chance to respond to the allegations. “Important to remember that only one side of the story has been leaked to the public ... important to get

the full picture,” Cairns wrote on his Twitter page. “To date, I have not seen any statements or spoken to anyone from ICC. Looking forward to that.” Richardson told Radio New Zealand that Cairns would be interviewed. “He will have been told why that has not happened,” Richardson said. “In the course of investigations a number of people have been spoken to and Chris Cairns will be interviewed when the time comes, when it is appropriate and when it is possible to do so.” Former Black Cap Daryl Tuffey also issued a statement through his lawyers denying any involvement in the match-fixing scandal and expressing his commitment to cooperate with the investigators. “... (Tuffey) has been asked by the media to comment on allegations that he was involved in or financially benefited from match-fixing or spot-betting. These allegations are regarded by Mr Tuffey as the most serious kind and are unequivocally denied by him,” the statement said. “Mr Tuffey is naturally frustrated by the unsubstantiated attacks on his good name levelled by a few self-interested individuals. He does, however, remain committed to continued cooperation with the authorities regarding this matter and is confident that he will ultimately be cleared of any wrongdoing.”

FIFA suffers setback as World Cup test event cancelled By Andrew Downie SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - Corinthians and FIFA have cancelled a test event at the stadium that will host the World Cup’s opening match and are now scrambling to arrange another game at the venue. Corinthians were scheduled to play Cruzeiro at the Corinthians arena on May 29, but the match was cancelled amid fears that the 16:00hrs local time kickoff could provoke traffic chaos in South America’s biggest and often hugely congested city.

That match has been rescheduled for the day before and moved to a different venue, Portuguesa’s Caninde Stadium. FIFA now say they will try to reschedule a game for the 68 000 capacity Corinthians arena on June 1. Corinthians are scheduled to play an away match against Botafogo in Rio that day, but the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) could swap the fixture to make them the home side. “The second test event ahead of opening World Cup match will be staged at Arena de Sao Paulo (Cor-

inthians arena) on June 1,” FIFA’s secretary-general Jerome Valcke said on Twitter: “CBF to re-allocate League match.” He added: “It vital for us that all facilities will be tested under full match conditions including the temporary seats and associated facilities.” The opening match of the World Cup between Brazil and Croatia is due to be held at the stadium on June 12. Corinthians played Figueirense in the first official match there last Sunday, but only 36 000 fans

watched the game and FIFA is worried some areas of the ground have not been subject to thorough tests. “Given the attention drawn from the opening match of the FIFA World Cup, it is vital for the organisers that all facilities will be tested under full match conditions, including the use of temporary seats and associated facilities,” FIFA said in a statement. “These additional installations were not in place when the first test match took place on May 19.”

DCB congratulates U-15 and U-19 teams on Inter-county success

FOLLOWING their successes at the Guyana Cricket Board’s Under-15 and 19 levels, the Raj Singh-steward Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) has extended congratulatory messages to both teams, especially the Under-19s who completed the double this year. The Bhaskar Yadram-led Under-15 team won the GCB Under-15 title from Berbice and Essequibo, while the Brian Sattaur-led Under-19 team won the three-day tournament less than two weeks ago and just last Sunday added the limited overs spoils to their coffers. Below is the congratulatory message from the DCB: “The Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) extends heartiest congratulations to the Demerara U-19 boys for their emphatic victories in the GCB U-19 Inter-County Three-Day and 50-Over Competitions. The team’s performance transcends the game of cricket in Demerara and amply demonstrates the talent and ability that abound in our county, since these victories were achieved under very challenging circumstances. After having an upand-down experience in the round-robin stage of the threeday format, the Demerara Under-19 youths completely dominated the final game, taking it by an innings and 49 runs against the President’s XI. Then in the 50-over format, they managed to rise from the dust with a victory against the GCB President’s Xi in the third round, which saw them make it to the final where they outplayed the same team to take the 2014 double title for the first time in several years. The DCB would like to

Tagenarine Chanderpaul laud Tagenarine Chanderpaul for his outstanding performances in both competitions. As expected, Tage came of age in this tournament and this augurs well for his confidence going forward. He won both the Best Batsman and Most Valuable Player awards in the 50-Over contest, accumulating 203 runs, which included two half-centuries, and captured five wickets. In the three-day contest, he scored a century in the game against the GCB President’s XI in the third round. The DCB further acknowledges and congratulates the Demerara U-15 team for winning the GCB Inter-County U-15 Competition earlier last month and trusts that our Under-17 boys will make it a clean sweep this year for Demerara. The DCB has been a much maligned county board in recent times by a few persons, but the hardworking executive committee of the DCB ensures that the teams are well prepared for these competitions, and they have repaid the investment in them and made us proud with victories on the field of play for the second consecutive year. We have refrained from blowing our own trumpet in the past, but no one seems to be recognising these positive outcomes and making the appropriate comments.”

Training for umpires to start May 29

THE GEORGETOWN Cricket Umpires and Scorers Association (GCU&SA) will commence training classes for the year 2014, next Thursday (May 29) from 17:00hrs at Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) pavilion. Thereafter sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 17:00hrs to 19:00hrs of each week at the same venue and will conclude with the Umpires Preliminary Examinations, scheduled for Sunday July 27. Registration fee is $500 and all cricketers, administrators, captains, coaches and reporters who are desirous of becoming umpires are invited to attend these sessions.

VCB wins first major race of the season

BEIJING, China (CMC) Multiple World and Olympic champion Veronica Campbell-Brown won a major race for the first time this season when she clocked a season’s best 11.14 seconds to win the women’s 100m at the IAAF World Challenge Meeting held in Beijing yesterday. The Jamaican, who has had some ordinary perfor-

mances so far this season, led a clean sweep of Jamaican women in the top four places on the same track that she won the Olympic Games 200m in 2008. Campbell-Brown held off a strong challenge from Simone Facey who was second in 11.19 seconds, Trisha-Ann Hawthorne third in 11.23 seconds and Aleen Bailey fourth in 11.32 sec-

onds. Facey, who is part of the Jamaica team to the IAAF World Relays, was the other Jamaican winner at the meet taking the women’s 200m in a season’s best 22.67 seconds. VCB will not be in the Bahamas for the IAAF World Relay meet this weekend. Facey and Bailey had a Jamaican 1-2 in the 200m

Another major highlight was the performance of U.S. sprinter Justin Gatlin who smashed the season’s best 100m time he set less than a week ago to claim victory. Gatlin comfortably won his race with a time of 9.87, slicing five-hundredths of a second off the 9.92 he clocked to win last Sunday’s Diamond League meet in Shanghai.

Confident Media XI face Scorers, Umpires on Monday SPORT journalists along with scorers and umpires, who are affiliated to the Georgetown Cricket Scorers and Umpires Association (GCS&UA), will on Monday (Independence Day), down their tools and square off in what has been dubbed a grudge match at the world-famous Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC), in a specially-organised T20 affair from 10:00hrs. With the aim of getting in top condition for the match, the Media XI have been in training under the watchful eyes of former national middle-order batsman and England ODI player Monty Lynch at the venue. During the sessions on Tuesday and yesterday, the confident media men were involved in several drills, as well as batting and bowling, and in an invited comment after the sessions, Lynch said he enjoyed working with the media team and wished the

journalists well. “I find it most enjoyable. It’s nice to see people who write about the game look to come out and play it as well, so when guys make fools of themselves you can understand how they feel,” Lynch said, as he addressed the team at the end of the session. He added, “I’m looking forward to watching the game because, like I said, umpires, scorers and journalists have a part to play in the development of the game and I think the more you guys play the more inclined you are to understand how players feel when they get out or make mistakes.” Skipper of the Media team, Calvin Roberts, explained the genesis of the game, which will be played with the red ball and white clothing. According to Roberts, the game was formalised after the umpires and scorers had challenged media operatives to test their skills on the field of play during

Ruling PPP/C pleased with passage of Cricket Administration Bill

THE ruling People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) is heartened at the passage of the Guyana Cricket Administration Bill which now paves the way for a more organised management of this sport. The National Assembly last Thursday night passed the Guyana Cricket Administration Bill that seeks to provide legal administrative guidelines for cricket, which over the years has become a national sport. Cricket is not just a sport in Guyana, but more of a way of life for all of us regardless of our age, gender or religious belief and as such we must continue to speak with a unified voice, when our way of life is threatened. We recall that this piece of legislation was crafted after extensive consultations with all stakeholders, and more so, following recommendations in a ruling made by the Honorary Chief Justice (ag) Ian Chang in 2011.” This Bill addresses a number of critical issues affecting the sport, including; - Making into a legal entity, the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) which is to be established as a corporate Body comprising the Demerara, Essequibo and the Berbice Cricket Boards respectively, all of which will also be made corporate entities; - Eliminating the issue of phantom voting for the election of persons for administrative positions and at the same time

will give limited power to the Minister of Sport; - Creating the position of a Cricket Ombudsman, who will be tasked with the responsibility of verifying and registering clubs; he or she will have ample time to verify legitimacy of clubs; - Providing for better financial accountability and requiring the GCB to present timely audited financial reports to the National Assembly, as well as the National Sports Commission (NSC); As a Party which has always been committed to transparency and accountability we feel that with greater scrutiny and oversight of financial records of the GCB, allegations of financial impropriety that were made in the past, will be reduced; The PPP also takes note of the Alliance for Change’s non-support for this important piece of legislation and wishes to remind Ramjattan and his acolytes that history will record them as neglecting efforts to rescue a sport that is so dear to all of us. We are not confused as to the reason why the AFC did not lend support to a law that is geared towards financial accountability. It is the same AFC which is on a public charade about the Procurement Commission to ensure transparency and accountability that decided not to support the Cricket Administration Bill, which seeks to address the very issues in the Guyana Cricket Board.

a Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Under-19 Inter-county contest. Following Tuesday’s session, Roberts sent a strong message to the opposition, boasting that the Media team is a very balanced one with a solid batting line-up that is backed by a capable bowling attack. Meanwhile, senior cricket journalist Sean Devers, will be using the game to get back into competitive action after a period of illness and, like several of his teammates, is earnestly looking

forward to Monday’s contest. After the sessions, Devers said he was feeling “pumped up” for the game and will be giving his best to ensure the Media boys come out on top over the umpires. The Media team’s batting will hinge on John Ramsingh, Rajiv Bisnauth, Ravi Persaud, Ishaka Jackman, Avenash Ramzan, Keon Blade and wicketkeeper/batsman Daniel Singh, while Roberts will spearhead his side’s bowling attack, with

support from Devers, Persaud, Jackman, Kizan Brumell and Esaun Griffith. Admission to the venue is free and members of the public are invited while the Media fraternity wishes to thank Lifetime Realty, Trophy Stall, P&P Insurance Brokers, Christopher Matthias and the management of GCC, for their tangible support in making this venture a success story. The Media squad reads Calvin Roberts, John Ramsingh,

GABF takes ‘Nuff Cuff’ boxing to Buxton

FOLLOWING the successful hosting of its Novices Boxing Championships at California Square, East Ruimveldt, under the theme ‘Nuff Cuff Injection’, the Steve Ninvalle-steward Guyana Boxing Association (GBA) has turned its attention to the East Coast of Demerara-based Buxton community for the second edition. Dubbed ‘Nuff Cuff Injection 2’, the event will punch off on May 31 (next Saturday) at the Buxton Community Centre ground from 19:00hrs, where boxing fans and enthusiasts will have the opportunity of seeing the country’s Simon Purees in action. Fifteen fights are carded for the night, with boxers representing gyms out of St Lucia, New Opportunity Corps (NOC), Berbice, Linden, Essequibo and Georgetown. Fans are asked to pay an entrance fee of $500 to witness the action. In an invited comment with Chronicle Sport, Ninvalle said he honestly believes the first edition of the ‘Nuff Cuff Injection’ was overwhelming and the members of the community responded well. “It tells us that we are moving in the right vein; when we take the sport to the communities other than have the communities come to the sport. One major hurdle it alleviates is the fact that people have to travel and do so for long distances,” said Ninvalle. He added, “Whenever you have a sporting event at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall or the National Gymnasium and such forth,

those people who would wish to witness the action from such villages as Mahaicony or Ann’s Grove are unable to do so due to transportation problems. “But when we take the sport to them, those people who would have heard of live boxing but don’t have means of transportation would get a chance to witness same and even bring out family members as well because it is right in the neighbourhood.” According to Ninvalle, following the first edition which also saw the return of the NOC gym to amateur boxing after a lengthy absence, there has been an inflow of young boxers in the gyms around Georgetown, which is a plus for the feeding programme of the GBA. “I see the ‘Nuff Cuff Injection’ programme as a win-win situation for us and the communities in which the programmes will be held. It gives us a great chance to unearth talent and really serves also as a fillip to unearth new talents, which augurs well for the sport.” Ninvalle said his organisation, by way of taking the sport to the communities around the country, was responding to Minister of Sport Dr Frank Anthony’s call to decentralise the sport as well.
