Mayor’s ‘semantics’ force Local Government Minister to leave Statutory Meeting

- fails to acknowledge presence of Minister Whittaker

By Ravin Singh APART from the Mayor’s failure to acknowledge the presence of Minister of Local Government and Regional Development Norman Whittaker yesterday, at City Hall’s Statutory Meeting, his continuous

yesterday, the Minister had written the Mayor requesting that he be allowed to engage councillors on their issues and concerns. This request was approved by the Mayor who via e-mail responded saying that it is in order. The commencement of the proceedings saw no ac-

tinued in his line of declarations, making announcements to the councillors, yet again failing to acknowledge the presence of Whittaker who later assured that he was not bothered. Interjecting, however, two councillors, Sobers and Devi-Ross, denounced the actions of Green, deeming them as disrespectful to the

provide the Mayor and City Councillors an opportunity to discuss the concerns that they have. Such issues included that of the Mayor’s complaint of no fuel being issued to him, councillors and their stipend and most importantly the services they should be providing and are not. He noted too that the Ministry has put aside some resources

“What you have here is a demonstration of what City Council spends most of its time doing, about fifty minutes engaging in semantics and nothing productive.”

Minster of Local Government Norman Whittaker engagement in semantics forced the Minister to exit the proceedings. Prior to his appearance

knowledgement of the Minister by Green who then began correcting the minutes with councillors. Green then con-

Minster. The Mayor as such, without hesitation then acknowledged Whittaker’s presence and continued with his announcements. This forced the Minister after a long non-productive wait to take his leave, subsequently justifying his actions. According to the Minister, his intention was to

to help City Hall fix some of their trucks and excavators. Whittaker continued that the issue of councillors and their stipend is one of major concern which he was prepared to address at yesterday’s meeting. He stressed that councillors cannot be given stipends for “sitting at home.” Therefore, they need to attend the statutory

meetings. The issue with the Mayor not being issued fuel was also one which was to be addressed, Whittaker said. “The Town Clerk is accusing the Mayor of abuse of fuel that is allocated to him. My intention was to say to council, let this be a matter that is discussed at the level of the Works Committee. Works Committee makes its recommendation to the statutory meeting and we go on from there,” he said. However, contrary to his plans to assist City Hall in their developmental strategies, Whittaker realised that the meeting was not productive in anyway and noted that the fifty minutes spent engaging in semantics and irrelevant criticisms, was a demonstration of what the City Council spends most of its time doing. “All they talking about is a t that wasn’t dotted in the minutes, a word that has another meaning… they are wasting the taxpayers money,” he lamented. “He (the Mayor) asked

me a question on Saturday, it was irrelevant to what was being discussed at that point in time and so I did not respond. And so he uses this forum, in my presence, to bring it up again. Look, the Deputy Mayor spends about twenty minutes talking about what’s considered to be foolishness,” he said. According to the Minister, people want to hear what they can do to make a difference. He stressed that while the Ministry is engaged in putting out advertisements in the newspaper and anticipating bids so an assessment could commence with the drainage at the main canals they (Mayor and City Council) are engaged in semantics. Whittaker related that he was expected to address the meeting at the inception, after the welcome. “The Mayor was aware that I was coming because he and I spoke on Saturday and I reminded him that he had acknowledged and agreed. There was not even an acknowledgement but I was not bothered,” he assured.

President urges small business involvement in addressing challenges to business sector

By Derwayne Wills

PRESIDENT Donald Ramotar yesterday called on members of the Small Business Development Finance Trust Inc. (SBDF) to recognise the energy crisis and non-passage of the AML/CFT Bill as a few of the challenges facing the business sector and the economy. During the 11th Annual General Meeting of the SBDF, held at the Regency Hotel in Georgetown, President Ramotar declared: “There are challenges facing small enterprise development despite our attempts to create an enabling and supportive legislative framework.” Recognising the need for stakeholder involvement in important issues, which make or break national development, President Ramotar stressed, “There are some areas where Government will be looking to you [SBDF] for support.” The President observed that, over the years, the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) administration has worked to ensure improved infrastructure in Guyana, which would facilitate rapid social and economic development. EFFICIENT ENERGY On the issue of energy efficiency and industrialisation, the President underscored that the greatest challenge to economic development is the unavailability of an affordable and efficient source of energy for produc-

At the head table (from left) are: Prime Minister Samuel Hinds; Chairman of the SBDF, Mr. Sattaur Gaffoor; His Excellency, President Donald Ramotar; Director of SBDF, Mr. Norman Mc Lean; Former President of the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI), Mr. Clinton Urling; and Director of the SBDF, Mrs. Yvonne Hinds” tion. The President expressed concern at the relaxed position of the SBDF on issues affecting the sec-

them to grow into medium and large scale enterprises… is the lack of cheap energy.” He noted that if there is an available source of ener-

“I was very surprised not to hear the voice of the small business development institution in the question of hydroelectricity in our country. This is not Government’s business alone, this is everybody’s business; and if we all want our country to develop, we must make our voices heard.” - President Donald Ramotar tor. He said, “I was very surprised not to hear the voice of the small business development institution in the question of hydroelectricity in our country. This is not Government’s business along, this is everybody’s business; and if we all want our country to develop, we must make our voices heard.” He said, “The biggest impediment to rapid development…[and] to the development of more small business enterprises…for

gy in the country, it would be conducive to developing a thriving agro-industrial sector. “Fundamentally, our country is an agricultural country, and if we want to use our agriculture as a raw material base for industrialisation, we need to have cheap energy,” the President remarked.

Outlining the benefits of the Amaila Falls Hydro-electricity Project (AFHP), the President declared that the Government had, this year, spent some $9B on subsidising electricity; whereas, had there been hydro-electricity, the monies saved by both the Government and households could have been utilised for developing more infrastructure or maintaining sanitation works, in effective garbage disposal and drainage and road maintenance. President Ramotar alluded to a scenario wherein hydro-electricity in Guyana would result in reduced electricity costs per household by between 20 and 40 percent. He said the envisaged hydro-electricity project (AHFP) would see citizens realizing these benefits in a matter of 25 years with

a constant reduction in the cost of energy, as monies would only be utilised for operational costs. These benefits, he said, are set to increase the disposable incomes of households, which in turn would convert such savings into investments and further business developments. AML/CFT NON-PASSAGE Speaking on the non-passage of the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (Amendment) (AML/CFT) Bill, the President said that Presidential

Kerry promises ‘intense and sustained’ support for Iraq

(Reuters) - SECRETARY of State John Kerry on Monday promised “intense and sustained” U.S. support for Iraq, but said the divided

country would only survive if its leaders took urgent steps to bring it together. Hours before Kerry arrived in Baghdad, Sunni tribes

who have joined a militant takeover of northern Iraq seized the only legal crossing point with Jordan, security sources said, leaving troops with no presence along the entire western frontier which includes some of the Middle East’s most important trade routes. U.S. President Barack Obama has offered up to 300 American advisers to Iraq but held off granting Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki’s Shi’ite Muslim-led government’s request for air strikes to counter the two-week advance by Sunni militants. Officials have meanwhile called for Iraqis to form an inclusive government. The insurgency has been fuelled largely by a sense of marginal-

US Secretary of State John Kerry

isation and persecution among Iraq’s Sunnis. “The support will be intense and sustained and if Iraq’s leaders take the necessary steps to bring the country together, it will be effective,” Kerry told reporters in Baghdad. He said Maliki had “on

multiple occasions affirmed his commitment to July 1” as the date to start the formation of a new government bringing in more Sunnis and Kurds to share power, a move Washington is keen to see. Iraqi and Jordanian security sources said tribal leaders were negotiating to hand the Turabil desert border post to Sunni Islamists from the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) who took two main crossings with Syria in recent days and have pushed the Shi’ite-led government’s forces back toward Baghdad. Iraq state television said late on Monday that the army had recaptured both the crossing with Jordan and the al-Waleed crossing with Syria. Reuters could not inde-

pendently confirm reports due to security restrictions. Ethnic Kurdish forces control a third border post with Syria in the north, leaving no government troops with no presence along Iraq’s 800-km (500-mile) western border. For the insurgents, capturing the frontier is a dramatic step towards the goal of erasing the modern border altogether and building a caliphate across swathes of Syria and Iraq. Kerry said: “Iraq faces an existential threat and Iraq’s leaders have to beat that threat with the incredible urgency that it demands. The very future of Iraq depends on choices that will be made in the next days and weeks.”

He wanted his family to leave Sudan as soon as possible, Mr Wani, who is a US citizen, told the BBC Focus on Africa radio programme. The death sentence for Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, who gave birth to a daughter in prison not long after she was convicted, sparked international outrage. “We are very very happy about this - and we’re going to her now,” Mrs Ibrahim’s

Three Brazilians PoS gangs recruiting in Central ...but Johnny Abraham says die in shoot-out in police nipped it in the bud Rio shantytown (BBC News) THREE people have been killed in a shoot-out between police and alleged drug traffickers in a shanty town in the Bra-

moved into Complexo do Alemao in force in 2012 in an effort to wrest control from criminal gangs. With a population of

Shootings continue to be frequent in the area, despite the fact that the Complexo do Alemao was among the first favelas to be “pacified”.

Police say they regularly get ambushed by gang members in the favela

zilian city of Rio de Janeiro. Two youths and a police officer died in the incident in the Complexo do Alemao shanty town, local media reported. Another officer and a youth were injured in the shooting, which happened in the early hours of Monday. The shooting comes as tens of thousands of football fans are in Rio, one of the venues for the 2014 World Cup. STRUGGLE FOR CONTROL Brazilian security forces

100,000 people, it is one of the largest favelas in the Brazilian city and has become something of a tourist destination for visitors wanting to see the poorer parts of Rio. Police said they had been fired at while on patrol in Complexo do Alemao. The officers alleged that the two dead youths had links to drug trafficking. “They use radios to tell each other where there’s a patrol and when they spot a small group of officers, they give orders to attack,” a local policeman told O Globo.

Soldiers first moved into the shanty town in 2010, and in 2012 a permanent police presence was established in the area. For the preceding decades, the area had been a virtual no-go zone for the security forces. Security has been one of the main concerns for the Brazilian authorities during the World Cup and thousands of extra troops and police have been deployed to guarantee the safety of visitors and residents alike.

Two Kingston cops arrested for robbery, abduction KINGSTON, Jamaica – O B S E RV E R O N L I N E has learnt that two police constables were arrested for reasonable suspicion of robbery and abduction in Kingston, yesterday, Sunday, June 22. Reliable sources say that the two officers stopped and searched a motor vehicle in downtown Kingston where they robbed the driver of an undetermined sum of cash then bound his hands and placed him in the back of

the car. According to reports the man was able to free himself and jumped from the moving vehicle into the path of a police unit along Spanish Town Road. The two cops continued driving before abandoning the vehicle further along the road. They attempted to make their escape in a waiting motorcar but the vehicle was intercepted along Prince of Wales Street in Kingston, the source said.

The victim positively identified the two men who were later confirmed as police constables assigned to the Denham Town Police Station. When contacted, the police Corporate Communications Unit refereed O B S E RV E R O N L I N E to Superintendent Steve Brown for details. However attempts to reach Brown by phone Monday morning were unsuccessful.

( Tr i n i d a d G u a r d i a n ) WHAT appeared to be a recruitment drive in Central Trinidad by Rasta City and the Muslims, two Port-of-Spain based gangs, was nipped in the bud recently when the police arrested two key players and slapped some 34 shooting and gun charges on them. “This will keep them busy in the courts for a long time,” head of the Central Division of the Police Service, Johnny Abraham told the Guardian Sunday.  He said about a month ago, Enterprise, Chaguanas was the scene of a “little war” between Rasta City and the Muslims. Rasta City is reportedly based in Beetham Gardens and the Muslims in Laventille. National security sources told the Guardian the gangs are viewing their rivalry as “a sort of Chris-

tian/Muslim war”. “They were shooting at people on the road in Crown Trace, Enterprise. About four or five people were shot but no one was killed,” Abraham said.   He said officers in the division heard “on the ground” that Rasta City, with the aid of connections in Enterprise, was coming to Central. “We heard a certain clip in the Muslims was trying to get men from Rasta City to join them. They were trying to recruit new members or something. “Them fellas does call meetings, you know. We were informed of a meeting of certain leaders in Arima which men from Central attended.”  Abraham admitted there is some gang migration but insisted Port-of-Spain gangs have “not really infiltrated” Central. “When things hot in Port-of-Spain, they run down here. When things hot

here, they run back Port-ofSpain. “But we are keeping our heads on the ground. We want no gangs on Central except Cepep and URP gangs.” Crime tracking Web site Bullet Points says there have been some 20 murders in the Central Division for the year.   Abraham, noting he has to confirm those figures, said many of the murders that took place in the division this year were crimes of passion and several of them were of the nature that the police could not pre-empt. Bullet Points records the 20 people were either shot, beaten, stabbed or strangled. Giving an example of the kinds of murders the police cannot avoid, he said, “For instance, you had two men arguing inside a house over money and one stabbed the other.

Five charged with mother, daughter beheading for trial November 17 KINGSTON, Jamaica: A NEW COURT date has been set for the five men charged with the beheading of a woman and her daughter in Lauriston, St Catherine, in July 2011. This morning a date of November 17 was set in the Home Circuit Court as the accused men were not brought to court. Even if they did turn up, the trial would not have started as the scheduled courtroom was being used for another case. The men are Adrian Campbell, Fabian Smith, K e m a r R i l e y, R u s h a n e Goldson and Sanjay Ducally. It is alleged that 19-year-old Joeith Lynch and her 49-year-old mother, Charmaine Cover-Rattray, were asleep at their Lauriston home on July 20, 2011 when men kicked off their door, and entered. The men allegedly murdered the woman and her daughter, then cut off their heads and dumped them

some distance away from the murder scene. The five men were arrested and charged following investigation by the police.


GUYANA CHRONICLE Tuesday June 24, 2014



Here’s hoping that good sense will prevail ONE letter-writer asked how the Government can govern the country under the duress of the Opposition’s constant destructive, anti-developmental and unpatriotic actions. The PPP/C administration delivered the largest Budget to have ever been presented in the National Assembly this year, but it was demolished once again by the Opposition cabal. Each consecutive National Budget has brought a new dynamism to the developmental paradigm of Guyana, which has been accelerating at an unprecedented rate since elections of 1992 precipitated the PPP/C into Government, with stabilised macro-economic fundamentals and sustained growth indices having been consistently achieved for the past eight years, even as many countries are facing recession on a global scale. The discerning can draw a nexus between the PPP Party and the PPP/C Government, because it is the vision and legacy of the Founding Father of the PPP, Dr. Cheddi Jagan, that is driving the phenomenal patterns of progress in this country that he loved so much. The struggles for viability in the agricultural sector, with the focus on non-traditional crops in the industry, and the struggle by the PPP for the restoration of democratic norms and boosting development in Guyana are symbiotic; and this does not diminish the achievements in every sector of national endeavour by the PPP/C Government, because they all go in tandem. Every successive PPP/C Budget shows clearly that the PPP/C administration works for all the people in the land, without fear, favour or prejudice. Except that constrained funds may sometimes force the prioritisation of projects, thus some communities may erroneously assume that some are favoured above others. But the Party of Cheddi Jagan will never discriminate between his people. Of recent times, the agricultural sector in general, and the rice industry in particular, have taken on a development trajectory directly in line with national development under the PPP/C Government. The PPP/C is a governmental construct that is a vital

force that is not static and stagnant, but is like a veritable runaway train that is inexorably taking Guyana to the ultimate goal of peace, progress and prosperity, through the confluences of development with a human face, a concept so dear to Dr. Jagan, which is integral to all the Government’s considerations, decisions, and actions. Since the accession of the PPP to the administrative levels of the Guyanese nation, the PPP/C Government has achieved a near-miraculous turnaround of Guyana’s social development and economic growth; and it is a matter of public record that Guyana was worse than the famous Augean stables when the PPP/C took office in 1992. Every sector has been catalysed, through transformative processes that took our country from an international rating on development graphs as lower or on par with Haiti; but today we are ranked as a middle-income country.  Our macro-economic fundamentals have been stabilised, and major financing and other international bodies are lauding our prudent fiscal management, which has achieved a sustained growth rating; and the Millennium Developmental Goal in food security and primary education. We are like a runaway train to progress. This trajectory has been sustained even in the face of a global economic crisis, which is severely and detrimentally impacting Third World nations, even our CARICOM partners; and an Opposition that seems hellbent to stymie, and even cause retrogression in all the gains we have made. The rice sector has been achieving incrementally greater output, as a direct result of the PPP Government’s interventions and facilitating measures; and when one considers that during the tenure of the former regime, Guyana had been forced to import low-quality rice for local consumption, the progress made in this sector is amazing.  Today our export market share has increased tremendously. Because of all the facilitating mechanisms and support availed to the agriculture sector by the Government, the rice industry continues to remain one of the main pillars of

Guyana’s economy, and continues to maintain its rating as the second most important agricultural industry in Guyana. Indeed, the government has been the main sustainer of this sector, and the Administration continues to provide significant intervention in the areas of drainage and irrigation, where facilities have been considerably improved, with ongoing works being undertaken in a continuum of efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change and other anomalies detrimentally affecting the agricultural sector. The runaway success in the agricultural sector is directly attributable to the liberalisation and free-trade policies initiated by the current PPP/C Administration, which has re-energised the rice industry and the entire agricultural sector. Many key bodies have denounced the anti-developmental actions and destructive strategies, in and out of Parliament, of those who are intent on stymieing the development of our nation, and the upward mobility of our people; but Budget 2014 has proven once again that the PPP/C Administration is a government of the people. No negative and anti-national actions will derail this country’s developmental trajectory under a PPP/C watch. Budget 2014 has constraints, because Guyana is yet a developing country with limited resources; but given where this country was in 1992, to where it is today, as exemplified by each successive National Budget, Guyana is on track, and cannot be derailed any longer; because every man, woman and child has been provided for in every incrementally larger budget each year. Kudos to the Guyana Government and Dr. Ashni Singh for an exceptionally visionary and people-oriented Budget 2014; and, hopefully, the Opposition will let good sense prevail as Finance Minister Ashni Singh moves to restore the items cut from the Budget this year.

How can the PPP/C govern under such duress? GRANGER is poised to return as PNCR Leader. If Granger is all the PNC has, and Greenidge is not challenging him for leadership of the PNC, then what is the PPP/C waiting for? This is exactly why the PPP/C must never give in to anything the PNC proposes in Parliament. Make no mistake, anything proposed by those in the AFC will be the nail in the PPP’s coffin if Government agrees with, and approves their proposals. Even the hardcore, die-hard supporters of the PNC reject Granger and Greenidge, outright, to lead them. Last election was living proof that the PNC (APNU is just a camouflage) could not amass any major crowds at the street rallies. The Guyanese people knew

something went terribly wrong on election night after the polls closed. On election night, after the polls closed, one Stabroek News blogger, who is close to the AFC, made it known that it is a “PPP/C minority” Government.  How could this AFC blogger have known it was a “PPP/C minority” when in fact the results came out days after, but confirmed that it was indeed a “PPP/C minority” win?  Then, as weeks went by, we read in the media that 19 polling stations in a PPP/C stronghold were not counted on election night, or any other night for that matter.  PNC can change their name from PNC to PNCR to PNC-RIG (most appropriate) to APNU, but Guyanese are not

that dumb as those in the PNC think they are. Only the hardcore, die-hard PNC supporters who have a stake in the PNC will vote PNC, like those in the police, the GDF, and other PNC supporters who are employed by the PPP/C to work in PPP/C Government-run institutions. They are the only ones who love Granger, because he keeps demanding more money from PPP/C for “public servants.” Now, the people know this is all that the PNC boss, Granger, has and nothing more for the masses. The PPP/C must first inform the Guyanese nation what preventative plans they have in place, so as not to have a repeat of what took place last election.  What plans are in place

if PNC threatens violence for shared Governance in the event of a PPP/C win? Will the PPP/C find the guts and belly to expel any foreign ambassadors, should they take to the streets again with the PNC and openly declare a PNC victory, despite evidence to the contrary? What plans are in place should there be any dispute to hold vote recounts to ensure all votes are properly counted before declaring a clear winner? The Guyanese nation cannot go on like this for too long, of PNC holding this nation to ransom. Let the voters decide who is to lead this country; whether it be PPP/C or PNC, but it can’t go on like it is at present. The PPP/C stands a great chance of losing the next elec-

tion, simply because the US, UK and the EU are against their winning. The PPP/C stands a great chance of losing the next election, because the security forces in Guyana vote overwhelmingly for PNC, members of which will man these polling stations. The PPP/C must be fair with the Guyanese people and do the right thing for the nation: And that is to call for and hold Local Government Elections and call snap elections now. The PPP/C was helpless and could do nothing but accept blame and responsibility for the Linden protest and killings. The PPP/C was helpless and could do nothing for its citizens when they were beaten, robbed and sexually molested on the Agricola Public Road. The PPP/C is

helpless and did, and is still doing nothing to bring to justice the “INSTIGATORS” of these two dangerous acts perpetrated on its citizens by terrorist masterminds. Despite the PNC’s past violent atrocities on the citizens, no Guyanese in their right mind can fully blame the PNC alone for what took place in Linden and on the Agricola Public Road. This is why I often say PPP/C is very much afraid of the US/UK/ EU/PNC/AFC/GPF/GDF/ GHRA/Red Thread/ Nigel Hughes/Ramjattan/Roopnarine/Glen Lall /Anand Persaud. And I will even throw in Freddie Kissoon and Adam Harris here. T. KING


GUYANA CHRONICLE Tuesday June 24, 2014

I blame both Government and Opposition THE failure to pass the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Finance of Terrorism legislation exposes a glaring lack of effective political leadership, and validates concerns about the country’s pernicious political leadership crisis. One would have assumed that after all the gamesmanship, posturing and rhetoric, our political policymakers, at both the executive and legislative levels, would have buckled down to pass this important legislation. After all, it is only our country’s

– for non-passage of AML/CFT Bill international reputation and economic and social well-being which are endangered. We could not have been more wrong as a people, as this whole episode solidly confirms why one should never make assumptions. In a few days, Guyana will be hit with sanctions and countermeasures by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and a series of actions detrimental to the overall health of our financial and

economic systems will follow. Days after the announcement of the international ‘blacklisting,’ the propaganda and rhetorical thumping machineries of both the Government and Opposition political parties will become loud, and the finger-pointing will go as far as to poke each other in the eyes. While this theatre plays out, ordinary citizens will be left to ponder what the eventual consequences will mean

to them. Regrettably, some will be sucked into the blame game and choose sides, based on whose argument they believe. However, the truth is that both the Government and Opposition are to be blamed for this failure. The Government, through the Office of the President, should have demonstrated an ‘at-all-cost’ spirit to negotiate and offer concessions to the Opposition to ensure a middle-ground

solution was arrived at, but in the end, the blame-game emerged more disturbingly, as the more desirable route. The Opposition also deliberately squandered the moment. Holding the majority in Parliament, it could have moved the Bill from the select committee level, passed it on the House floor, and sent the Bill to the President for his assent. This was made easier when the Chairwoman and the Executive

Director of the Caribbean FATF offered to lend any technical assistance to the Bill’s sponsors to ensure the finished product would have complied with FATF standards. This suggests our political leaders are failing in their leadership responsibilities to get things done in the people’s best interest. It is time our citizens take the floor in demanding more effective leadership. CLINTON URLING Blue CAPS

The Court should exercise leniency and compassion A FATHER and his son from North Road, Georgetown, were this week’s latest drug busts at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport, Timehri. They were caught trying to traffic cocaine concealed in the handles and false walls of their suitcases. At the time of their arrest, they were outgoing passengers about to board Flight BW 528 bound for the lucrative North American drug market. The USA destination, in recent times, has become a haven for drug smuggling activity, with persons doing practically anything conceivable to sell the white stuff. In this case, a father utilising his son to transact “business.” Not even delving further into the matter, I would forthrightly recommend a stiff

penalty of not less than 20 years for this beast of a father. A public example should be made of this man, to send a clear message that you cannot, as an irresponsible adult, live a normal life by destroying that of your son. It will also have the dual effect of putting the perpetrators or masterminds behind these ghastly acts in their rightful places. I guarantee you, this was not the first time this father has used his son as a courier to perpetrate his nefarious activities. Of course, the youngster was kind of uncomfortable with the idea of going it alone on other occasions, but this time must have impressed upon the father to accompany him. He would have been tired of the risks taken before, knowing

full well that his entire life can be shattered at any time, if a keen drug enforcement official holds on to him. Now that the mastermind is in custody, then we should let him spend the maximum time in prison. Ironically, at a time when we are celebrating the gift of fathers, is this the “best” gift this father has for his son? If I were the presiding magistrate, I would double the father’s time of incarceration: Ten years for him! And let him serve an additional ten for his son, for destroying his future; that is, poisoning the young impressionable mind of the youth. This father should face the full brunt of the law. A youthful mind can be easily influenced, forcefully so, by his own father. So, I rest my case.

Now, let me relate to you a similar situation that occurred some years ago at a Miami Airport. A Jamaican teenager was intercepted at the American airport trying to smuggle a large quantity of cocaine into that country. She was a mere schoolgirl of 16, caught in the act when she should have been in school. You see, the drug barons of the day were taking advantage of the closeness of Jamaica to the USA; one can make a trip to the USA and return to Jamaica within hours. At the same time, he was utilising the services of some gullible schoolgirls who wanted to live the “high life” of drug smuggling. She was not so lucky this time, because the anti-narcotics agents in Miami caught her red-handed. 

Imagine the thought of the parents receiving a call from immigration officials that their daughter had been charged for trafficking in drugs in another country. The parents of the youngster could not believe what immigration officials were telling them, of a daughter being in Miami when they knew for a fact that their daughter was supposed to have been at school in Montego Bay. However, they had to admit the fact, as the truth gradually settled in. The most distressing part of this story is the fact that the schoolgirl could not reveal the name of the guy she was working for, reasons being those parents would have been dealt with  swiftly; as they say, in Jamaican parlance, “awe dust the gaal family,” “dust”

meaning kill as in “dust to dust” used at funerals. In this regard, she had to suffer the consequences alone. The Guyana situation is different, because we have the father who is the mastermind, and he should face the full weight of the law. On the other hand, I would have his son sentenced to community service, and a rigorous counselling programme, because a sterner punishment would have been classified as wasting the years of an otherwise productive youth at the behest of a hardened criminal father.  This is the time for the court to exercise its better judgment by exploring the possibilities of leniency and compassion.

He stressed that there is a need for resources which have been lacking at the facility and the idea of in-

creasing the tuition from GYD$127,000 annually to US$1,000 will aid the institution’s development. Opadeyi noted that the tuition fee was set at US$1,000 in 1994, which was equivalent to GYD$127,000 at that time. However, he continued that as a result of the Guyanese dollar depreciating, US$1,000 would now be around GYD$210,000 but UG still charges GYD$127,000 as annual fees. According to the Vice-Chancellor, the University must be a self-sustained one so as to avoid political interferences. As a result, the increase in tuition would aid in assisting all these develop-

mental strategies and provide better services to its students. One such visible improvement seen by Opadeyi is the need for the rehabilitation of the football field which he described as a “fish pond” following heavy showers. The development of programmes which are limited due to the lack of funding and high fees required by researchers from global markets are also issues which require a substantial amount of funding. These needs, therefore, must be met so as to foster development at the institution, Opadeyi noted. “We need to create a new future for the University” he said, while noting that the challenges faced by UG are

“We need to create a new future for the University” - the challenges faced by UG are enormous and as a result growth is stifled - Vice-Chancellor Jacob Opadeyi.

enormous and as a result, growth is stifled. Commenting on whether he believes the successful implementation of an increased tuition fee for students will result in a decline in the student population, the Vice-Chancellor assured that he is certain there will be no decline. He maintained that if the adjustment which will result in an increase is achieved, “we will take care of those who cannot afford it.” It was noted that in 2012, the University of Guyana Council reiterated the need for the UG administration to

implement the adjustment of tuition fees to the current exchange rate and again it was not implemented. In that light, the governing body has stated that in a move to improve the offerings and the infrastructure of the institution, they have now seen it necessary to engage the national community through a series of stakeholder consultations. The consultations which will run for four days commencing today will aim to sensitise UG stakeholders regarding the current financial position of the University; Turn to page 7

Health Ministry to launch Woman claiming police harassment National Mental Health slapped with Action Plan soon seven charges THE Ministry of Health will soon be launching a National Mental Health Action Plan to deal with the numerous aspects of mental health. The Ministry is hoping to launch it in October on World Mental Health Day. This was announced yesterday by Minister of Health Dr. Bheri Ramsaran during a press briefing at the Ministry. He pointed out that the plan will focus on the integration of mental health into the primary health care services, and will include training for family doctors, nurses and medex in mental health management, along with improving Psychiatric Services at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC). It will also focus on dealing with several contributing factors to the illness. These include the development of a National Suicide Prevention Strategy (NSPS), a Homeless Action Plan (HAP) and a Drug Rehabilitation Programme (DRP). A draft for the Mental Health Promotion and Prevention Plan (MHPPP) will also be developed Legislation is also one of issues that will be looked at under this plan. This will see the Guyana Mental Health Policy and Plan 2014-2020 being updated, the preparation of a policy and guidelines to use psychotropic

substances and the finalisation of Guyana’s relevant legislation. Under this plan, human resource training will be given priority. Emphasis will be placed on incorporating mental health into the curriculum for professional Nurses and Nursing Assistant Programmes and the provision of the Masters in Medicine in the Neuropsychiatry Programme. Minister Ramsaran noted that thus far, 250 individuals from different areas of the medical field have been trained in this area. The Minister highlighted that emphasis will be placed on having more Cuban trained physiologists in the scholar-

ship programme. Meanwhile, Minister Ramsaran pointed out that the ministry will be launching a Presidential Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) Commission which has been approved by Cabinet and President Donald Ramotar, and will focus on hypertension, diabetes, cancer and heart conditions. One of the major partners in this initiative is the Ministry of Education with whom the Health Ministry has been working. This commission will be launched in September during the official launching of the Ministry’s Wellness Warriors. (GINA)

President urges small business involvement ... dispatched to Paris, France to represent Guyana’s position to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). The FATF met yesterday to discuss Guyana’s fate following its failure to pass the AML/CFT (Amendment) Bill, and President Ramotar observed that the Government has been working to

adopt measures which can be taken to alleviate the potential blacklisting of the nation’s financial system. He noted that blacklisting would negatively influence the development sectors, and stressed that he had made an offer to the Opposition that he would be willing to pass their pro-

posed amendments to the AML/CFT Bill on condition that if the bill was found to be non-compliant with FATF regulations, the Opposition would accept the amendments that would make the legislation FATF-compliant; but, regrettably, this caveat did not find favour with the combined opposition.

Small business entrepreneurs gathered at the 11th Annual General Meeting of the Small Business Development Financing Trust Inc.

“Here, again, I think that I need your support, because all of us -- every single person -- could be affected, and we all need to work together to come out of this situation that we are in”, the President appealed. Non-passage of the AML/CFT Bill threatens the development of Guyana, since the bill was introduced as a result of an international process that responds to the growing threat of international terrorism. President Ramotar noted that the aim of the bill is to standardise, in every country, the legislation with the aim of preventing crimes of money laundering, terrorist financing, and other international criminal activities. A country that is not compliant with FATF regulations is assumed to be friendly with international criminals, mon-

ey launderers and terrorists. “This is an issue that affects every single Guyanese, regardless of what political parties you belong to”, President Ramotar continued. ACCESS TO INFORMATION President Ramotar expressed concerns at the lack of information available to facilitate financing of small businesses in the sector. “I suspect that there are many people out there who need support in starting a small business and who do not know where to turn,” he observed. Urging for more proactive attempts from organisations like the Small Business Development Finance Trust, President Ramotar pointed out that there is not enough information on sources of

finance. He attributed the reluctance of small investors to approach financing institutions to the fear of being rejected and the lack of information. The President said the role of micro financing organisations is undeniable. He said that, aside from loans, there is urgent need for technical assistance in the areas of accessing customers and supplies, access to entrepreneurial mentorship, assistance in effective accounting and management, and ideal markets for selling products. The President therefore urged the organisation to recognise the many challenges confronting small businesses, and called on the organization to cooperate with the Government in finding solutions and responses to such challenges.

Old Kai: Chronicles of Guyana…

Opposition-controlled M&CC in 1996 bought executive vehicles with $15M Gov’t aid

… funds were meant for city clean-up THE year was 1996, four years on from the historic 1992 elections, which meant many things; but importantly, it marked a halt to Guyana’s economic slide. Virtually no money is in the treasury; the private sector has been decimated; inflation was now being brought under control; and shortages still existed in some areas, because the economic transformation could not possibly have been automatic. There is a lot of work to be done, but the financial resources available were limited. All across Georgetown resembled a mine-field: Kids would make paper boats and play in the huge sinkholes termed ‘potholes’ in many areas, one example being in Garnett Street, Newtown, Kitty, which is now one of the main routes for the Kitty/ Campbellville minibuses. Local Government elections were held three years ago, and no less a person than Hamilton Green is once again serving as Mayor. This is after the PNC backtracked on an earlier agreement with the PPP/C to rotate the mayorship every year among the three Parties represented in the M&CC. Mayor Green of the then GGG, a splintered faction from the PNC, served the first year; the PPP/C supported the PNC’s candidate, Ranwell Jordan, for the second year. But when it was time for the PPP’s turn, the PNC teamed up with the GGG and used their majority to implant Mayor Green once again. The state of Georgetown during this period was a reflection of the entire country, and the PPP/C administration

was to embark on an initial $1B extensive road rehabilitation campaign across the City. But why was the Government forced to embark on this project, which continues today, where it is expending hundreds of millions annually to rehabilitate roads in the City which falls under the responsibility of the M&CC? Why did it not seek to go through the M&CC? Was this not an act of undermining the Council, as is being claimed today by Mayor Green and his acolytes whenever they are given space in the press? Well, the truth will take us back to an incident involving a $15M aid to City Hall by the Government in 1996. The money was released through the Local Government Ministry for ‘the clearing of drains and repairing roadways’ to aid citizens who desperately needed these services, as they still do today, only for the Council to divert the funds to reportedly purchase ‘expensive executive cars’. The GGG/PNC used their combined majority over the PPP/C in the Council, similar to what the AFC/PNC-APNU currently does in the National Assembly today, to outvote the PPP/C Councillors in a motion on whether to use the cash to clear drains and repair roadways, or to buy executive cars. Such was the level of commitment of the Opposition-dominated Council to improve the Capital City; yet today, they find it convenient to lay blame for the state of Georgetown on the PPP/C Government. The records would show that at every step of the way, the Central Government was supportive of the Council, despite the

obvious challenges. It was the government which provided land to relocate Water Street vendors and clear the entire area, making it easier for citizens to conduct their business unhindered in this commercial section of the Capital City. All the City Council was required to do was to maintain the area, but, sadly, today the situation has returned to the state it was before the government’s intervention. It was the government which intervened to clear up sections of the Stabroek Market area, demolishing illegal structures which had encroached on the reserves, and hindered the flow of traffic, while also easing the congestion of the minibus parks. It was roundly criticised for this move, including City Hall, but today, many continue to benefit from the initiative. It was the government which intervened and cleared the Railway Embankment section, from Main Street to a bit over Vlissengen Road of squatting, which was being done under deplorable health conditions, with almost no effort from City Hall to correct the situation. Government came under attack again for this initiative, during which it provided house lots and assistance for relocation. The records would show the constant effort by the government to improve the aesthetics of Georgetown, with almost no help from the City Council, which, in some cases, criticised rather than supported these initiatives. Tomorrow, we will focus, probably, on the biggest irony of street vending. We will judge the sincerity of Mayor Hamilton Green and Co. to the plight of vendors.

Hammie and his hypocritical nature MONDAY’S display by the Chief Citizen, His Worship the Mayor of Georgetown, Mr Hamilton Green, of what was definitely downright discourteous and disrespectful behaviour following the visit of the Minister of Local Government, can only be described as unmasking the contradictions, while concomitantly revealing the hypocritical nature of the man. OBSERVER must remind all that this is the same citizen who had once been prime minister of Guyana, and who more than so many, ought not to be reminded as to the meaning of protocol and respect for functional authority. And we all recall how much he has been lamenting the need for respect among citizens, and the need for that well-known phrase of his – A moral and spiritual revival. Yet look what he has done. Would he, in his heyday, have accepted such? We all

know the answer. Wholly contradictory, too, since Minister Whittaker’s visit to the City Hall, OBSERVER is sure, concerned discussing the many problems that have placed the Council under siege, with the intention of finding solutions. And what better functionary could have visited the City Hall, than the subject Minister. Is the Mayor for real?  Surely, this is Hammie, whose many lamentations about the need for all parties to work together for the good of the City and its citizens, have finally been proven to be the opposite. This is Hammie, who sought to impose the only brand of politics he seems to comprehend, which in the process accrues to total disregard for the welfare of citizens. So much for that moral and spiritual revival talk!

First stone depot opens in – 1,000 tonnes expected Georgetown every three days THE first stone depot in Georgetown yesterday received its initial shipment of 1,000 tonnes of stone at Battery Road, Kingston, just behind the Guyana Forestry Commission. Mr Vishnu Ramdial of Durban Quarries said that with the heavy demand for stone, the new operation is available to anyone who wishes to purchase. Obtainable are different grades from ½ inch, ¾ inch and others. The supply is expected to be renewed every two to three days. Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment, Mr. Robert Persaud, who inspected the shipment said that a lot of the stone will go towards housing, road and sea defence projects. Observing that there have been complaints of a shortage, the minister said it is the belief that quarry operators in Guyana can do better. “They can scale up their output to meet the market. It is always sad when local contractors and even the government itself, have to contemplate importing quarry material given the vast resources,” he pointed out. Minister Persaud noted

Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment, Mr. Robert Persaud, examines the stone whilst Mr Vishnu Ramdial of Durban Quarries looks on

an off loading facility. The current location was identified through discussions with the Ministry of Public Works, and the company invested in a barge and tug. Minister Persaud expressed the hope that through the facilitation “we will see an increased supply to the market especially to the construction sector.” He also hopes that this move would satisfy the stone shortage and that other operators would utilise the resources and improve it. Mr. Persaud also said that his Ministry is currently

reviewing the terms and conditions of quarry operators and an excess of a dozen applications for operations in the country are currently being reviewed. He noted that whilst wanting to upscale the sector, “we are looking at new entrants to support the construction boom in the country, and remove the reliance on imported stone.” He also pointed to the boom in the construction sector which has increased the demand for stone, and expressed the hope that more quarry operators would respond.

He observed that it was not just shortage of materials, but bringing the material to the market and having the necessary depot. He said his ministry worked with Durban Quarries while at the same time sought to work with other operators in terms of ironing

out their difficulties. The minister said several issues were addressed and worked out including the procurement of spares through the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), as well as getting support from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC). With respect to Durban Quarries, the minister stated that the operator did not have

Agricola Community Centre ground to be refurbished – Commander Clifton Hicken By Asif Hakim THE Agricola Community Centre ground at the back of the community had been abandoned for some ten years but it will soon be refurbished, according to Commander of

But Commander Hicken said that he wants Agricola to have a sporting facility of its own. He also acknowledged that the community is well known for doing well in sports, since the time he was attached to the Tactical Services Unit (TSU) and visited there regularly on patrol. The fence material and labour would be donated by the Ministry of Public Works, while the sand, dirt and wood would

be donated by the police ‘A’ Division. Chief Building Engineer of the Ministry of Public Works, Mr Howard Samaroo, who visited and inspected the ground, said that the ground will have to be weeded, levelled and fenced. The residents of Agricola said that they would assist in the work because they need their ground back. One resident told the Chronicle that since Mr. Hicken took over ‘A’ Division a

lot of work has been done and no other Commander had done so much before in the Division. Mr. Hicken, since taking over as Commander of ‘A’ Division, has been pushing numerous programmes such as the Impact Albouystown project, medical outreaches, meetings with the business community and forming various Community Policing Groups, among other initiatives.

Inclement weather leaves several communities inundated …gradual easing of rain forecast

A flooded section of Cummings Street between Robb and Regent Streets yesterday This section of Middle Street made traversing difficult for pedestrians and some motorists

By Sandy Agasen HEAVY and prolonged showers last night and yesterday morning have left several commercial and residential areas of Georgetown and some coastal communities inundated. Many woke up to flooded yards, lower flats, streets, and even main roadways, causing inconvenience to persons by the

disruption of their daily routine. The Hydro-meteorological Service informed this publication that between 10.0mm and 30.0mm of rainfall had been recorded over all regions during a six-hour period to noon yesterday. The highest totals were recorded over Regions 7 (Cuyuni/Mazaruni), 8 (Potaro/ Siparuni), 10 (Upper Demerara/Upper Berbice), and in coastal

and near inland areas. The Hydro-met office added that recent rainfall made the ground “wet”, but additional rainfall has the potential to bring flooding. However, the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) has implemented measures, among which is the formation of an Emergency Committee to address potential flooding in the city and elsewhere. Drainage pumps are

Weather Outlook for the week ► Today: Cloudy to overcast skies can be expected, with light to moderate showers over coastal areas and Region 7 during the morning periods, becoming partly sunny into the afternoon. ► Heavy thundershowers are likely over Region 8. Other areas across Guyana would likely experience occasional showers. Rainfall is expected between 25.0 and 40.0 mm over coastal areas and Region 7, and between 60 millimetres (mm) and 100mm over Region 8. ► Wednesday: Partly cloudy to cloudy skies can be expected, with a few scattered, light-to-moderate showers over coastal areas. Other areas can expect isolated showers. Rainfall is expected up to a maximum of 20mm over coastal areas. ► Thursday: Partly cloudy conditions can be expected, with sunny skies and brief cloudy periods along with isolated to scattered light showers. Rainfall is expected up to a maximum of 15mm over coastal areas. ► Friday: Cloudy to overcast skies can be expected, with occasional to frequent light-to-moderate showers over regions 1 and 2. Other areas can expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies, with brief isolated showers. Rainfall is expected up to a maximum of 30mm over regions 1 and 2, and up to a maximum of 10.0mm over other areas.

A section of Bourda Market was inundated, causing these vending locations to be closed for the day

working efficiently, and some have been installed at emergency drainage locations to ensure efficient and effective recession of floodwaters. Flash flood warnings are in effect for flood-prone areas within Regions 3 (Essequibo Islands/West Demerara), 4 (Demerara/ Mahaica), 5 (Mahaica/ Berbice) 6 (East Berbice/ Corentyne), and Region 10. The Regional Democratic Councils (RDCs) in the various regions told this publication that they have not had any serious case of flooding in any of their respective villages, but low-lying areas have expectedly been affected.

Woman claiming police harassment ...

From page 8

because her husband of five years has been seeing another woman. In an interview with this newspaper, yesterday, Seenanan recalled being placed before the courts to face seven charges; but according to one police source, the woman has another charge coming her way, and this one is for damage to property. She related that her husband has been physically abusing her, and the police at the station in the area do not respond to her complaints; but whenever her husband needs the police, they are at his beck and call. She showed this publication some photographs of lacerations she had received at the hands of the man she had been living with for the past five years, and she said her children had witnessed the assaults. According to her, there are two houses on a plot of land, one which is owned by her husband, and the other which she and him built during their union. She said the man was given a restraining order to stay one hundred feet away from her, but he has been breaching that restriction. The mother of two said that, last week Tuesday, she travelled from Berbice to the home in Diamond, but was not able to enter, since there was someone else with a child in the house. Although she was not able to see the other person, she was convinced that the woman was the new person in the man’s life. She said she asked the woman to open the door, but the woman refused, and while she was trying to open one of the louvre windows, it broke. Shortly after, the police arrived in the company of her husband, and she was promptly arrested and taken to the East La Penitence Police Station, where she There are bruises over the eyes of Odessa was charged and Seenanan, which she said she received from locked up. She said the her husband entire episode had been caught on a phone recording which the police took possession of. According to Odessa, she was, and remains concerned that when the police arrived to arrest her, they came without a female officer, hence, she had refused to allow the male police ranks to arrest her. POLICE DETAILS Meanwhile, late yesterday afternoon, a senior police officer who is close to the investigation informed the Guyana Chronicle that there was a development involving the woman and her behaviour at a home in Diamond. The police source, who is not authorised to speak with the media, informed that the police had not been ignoring the woman’s complaints, as she suggested, and that there is no evidence at this time to show that the police were being paid by the man to harass the woman. This publication was told that the man the woman calls husband visited the police station and made a report concerning the development at his home, where the woman visited and broke windows of the house, while behaving in a disorderly manner. The source also stated that at the time of the entire episode, she was under the influence of alcohol. The police source said the woman was not harassed by police officers who showed up to effect the arrest, and although male police officers had indeed visited to make the arrest, a female rank later arrived on the scene in response to a request for female back-up. The police source, a senior police officer, informed that the ranks who arrested the woman were on patrol, but the source made it clear that nothing stops a party of male police officers from arresting females. However, when it comes to stop-and-search exercises and carrying out a search of any female who is arrested or detained by the police, that can only be done by female police officers. The woman did not indicate to the Guyana Chronicle if the police had searched her, or had attempted to do so. Odessa Seenanan was charged with four counts of assault. One alleges that she had bitten a peace officer, another alleges disorderly behaviour, another alleges threatening behaviour, and the last one alleges resisting arrest. She is still to be slapped with a charge of damage to property.

PPP rejects APNU’s call for COI into shooting of protestors --Says matter should go to Parliamentary Oversight Committee

THE ruling party, yesterday, rejected A Partnership for National Unity’s (APNU) motion, which was passed by the National Assembly last Thursday and called for a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the shooting of the party’s protestors on December 6, 2011. The People’s Progressive Party (PPP), in a statement, said 0000........................... that the matter should have gone to the Parliamentary Oversight Committee on the security sector and called for the “speedy establishment” of the Committee. “Our Party takes this opportunity to reiterate its call for the speedy establish-

ment of the Parliamentary Oversight Committee on the Security Sector and for the Speaker of the National Assembly to convene soonest a meeting of Parliamentary Parties for this purpose. The PPP stands willing to provide any support that may be deemed necessary,” the statement said. AVOIDING COMMITTEE The PPP added that the motion is “another deliberate and calculated attempt by the Opposition” to avoid having security related matters come under the purview of the Parliament, in which a motion was passed for the estab-

lishment of a Parliamentary Oversight Committee on the Security Sector that “we believe would provide the best mechanism for the resolution of security related issues,” the party said. The ruling party also highlighted the frequent Opposition’s utterances on the importance of Parliamentary Committees to deal with issues which impact our society, yet exhibits reluctance for the Parliamentary Oversight Committee on the Security Sector to deal with subject issues. The PPP statement said, “The PPP believes that partisan self-interest is the bedrock of the APNU’s un-

National Assembly approves names of nominees for Judicial and Police Service Commissions By Derwayne Wills

THE National Assembly last Thursday approved the names of nominees for the Police and Judicial Service Commissions to be approved by the President. The names approved by the National Assembly; to be referred to the President, included the Deputy Commissioner of Police (ret’d), Mr. Lloyd Alvin Smith; Assistant Commissioner of Police (ret’d), Mr. Harold Martin; Assistant Commissioner of Police (ret’d) and practicing Attorney-at-Law, Mr. Keith Malcolm John; and Mr. Omesh Satyanand. Nominees were drawn from the Police Association, the Association of Former Members of the Guyana Police Force, the National Commission on Law and Order, and the National Community Policing Executive. Presidential Adviser on Governance and Chief Whip for the Government, Ms. Gail Teixeira, speaking on behalf of the motion, noted that the nominations represented “a broad spectrum of persons from the Police Association, Association of Former Members of the Guyana Police Force, the National Commission on Law and Order, and the National Community Policing Executive. And there is a good spread of former police, as well as civilian representatives in order to ensure that the Commission did not only include officers but also the

Gail Teixeira voice of civilians. Teixeira commended the work of the Parliamentary Committee on Appointments. She noted that the Committee had held to the resolution that was set out during the Ninth Parliament to have meaningful consultations with the four organisations that are representative of the majority of members in the Guyana Police Force. On the functions of the Police Service Commission, the Chief Whip, in an invited comment, stated that the mandate of such a commission is aimed at recruitment, appointment, promotions and discipline. In dealing with the discipline of members of the Police Force, she noted that it is only when there is an issue referred to the commission where accusations of abuse can be proven that the commission may dismiss members who were involved. Chairman of the Committee of Appointments, Dr. George Norton, presenting the motion, asserted that in keeping with Article 210 (1) (c) of the constitution, after meaningful consultation with

relevant bodies, nominees are drawn from these bodies and those nominees are approved by the National Assembly. The list of nominees will then be presented to the President for approval, after he has consulted meaningfully with the Leader of the Opposition. On the appointment to the Judicial Service Com-

Dr. George Norton mission, the National Assembly unanimously approved the nomination of Justice Lennox Perry (ret’d) in accordance with Article 198 (2)(c) of the Constitution for appointment by the President, after meaningful consultation with the Leader of the Opposition. “[The] Judicial Service Commission is one of the greatest difficulty and we call for the expeditious handling of the discussions between the Leader of the Opposition and the President, to be able to have the additional nominee, other than those which come from Parliament,” Teixeira stressed.

willingness to activate the oversight committee. “The Opposition is fully aware that if such a committee were to be established, they would not have a free reign to launch their continuous attacks on the PPP/C Government and the Minister of Home Affairs. Such wanton attacks, which have become a characteristic of the Opposition, seem to provide optimal gratification for their daily diet of verbal bombardment aimed at the Government. It would therefore be challenging for the Opposition to delink their engrained proclivity from acting in a professional manner. “More importantly, our Party strongly believes that the main reason for the Opposition’s reluctance to have this oversight body in place is because this committee must be headed by the Government minister. This obvi-

ously is not to the liking of the Opposition since their propensity is to dominate positions within the National Assembly as in the case of the Speaker, the Deputy Speaker and the majority they have taken in Parliamentary Committees. Yet this is the same Opposition, which has the temerity to accuse the Government of not engaging in inclusiveness.” DECEPTIVE POLITICS The party also decried what it termed “deceptive politics” under the guise of claiming to have the Guyanese people’s interests at heart. “It is clear indication of their unwillingness to have a resolution to security related matters institutionalised within the Parliamentary framework,” the PPP said. The ruling party also highlighted the fact that the Disciplined Service Com-

mission Report, of which the Leader of the Opposition, Brigadier (Rt) David Granger was part of, had called for the establishment of a Security Commission. The statement said, “It is clear that Mr. Granger and the Opposition, therefore, have no excuse for delaying the establishment of this Parliamentary Oversight Committee on the Security Sector or the Security Committee. In this context, Mr. Granger must immediately let the public know which of these two he wishes to be associated with.” Additionally, the National Assembly is expected to address another APNU motion calling for the appointment of a CoI to investigate the incidence of criminal violence from 2004 to 2010 in Guyana. The motion was first tabled in December, 2012.

Monday’s meeting followed the first response from CARICOM’s Chair to Samuels-Brown after the matter was raised by President

Ramotar at the Conference of Heads of Government of CARICOM, during its 25th Inter-Sessional Meeting, held on March 10 and 11, in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. WELCOMED DECISION The PPP, in its statement, also noted that the decision was a welcomed one, particularly since Guyanese students generally are always known to do well at the Hugh Wooding Law School. “This is indeed a step in the right direction as Guyanese students generally are always known to do well at the Hugh Wooding Law School and in numerous instances have made it to the Honour Roll,” the statement said. The PPP also underscored the importance the PPP has placed on higher education since it took office in 1992 and pointed out that this was the reason for the establishment of the University of Guyana (UG) in 1963. “The PPP has always

placed a high premium on higher education which is a necessary pre-requisite for national development,” the statement said, also adding that the party’s investments in this area have been done despite the strong objection from People’s National Congress (PNC) and “other prophets of doom,” as was the case with the establishment of UG. It highlighted the fact that the University of Guyana saw many tremendous developments and has now expanded in the range of offerings and boasts its own Medical School and other faculties - engineering, arts, social and natural sciences. The matter of Guyana’s law students’ entry to Hugh Wooding is expected to be addressed again at the next CARICOM Heads of Government Conference, which is scheduled to take place at the Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa, St. John’s, Antigua and Barbuda, July 1 to 4, 2014.

TravelSpan Guyanese flight attendants ‘doing extremely well’ in FAA training course By Rebecca Ganesh-Ally

The 14 TravelSpan flight attendant trainees who left Guyana on June 4 for formal training at Vision Airline’s Office in Nevada, Las Vegas to be conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are reported to be “doing extremely well.” Speaking at a press conference at the Executive Lounge at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA), Vanita Jagnarain, General Manager of TravelSpan Guyana had explained that the company started advertising the existing vacancies for flight attendants in January

- due to return by Thursday

2014, and the company had received hundreds of applications. Thirty applicants were shortlisted and all are to be trained by the FAA. Fourteen Guyanese left here on June 4 for the training that will last three weeks. In view of the class size, all prospective flight attendants were not accommodated in the first batch. The remaining sixteen are scheduled to leave at the end of June to be trained. Jagnarain, in an invited comment, stated that after almost two weeks of training “the flight attendants are doing extremely well. The

candidates are more than half way through their training exercise which comes to an end this week. We are told that officials at the training facility are very impressed with the trainees and their capabilities.” She also related that on June 15 “the staff of Vision Airlines Training Center in Las Vegas, Nevada was very impressed by the hard work and dedication of the Guyanese students and as a reward the flight attendants travelled on a Vision Airlines 737 aircraft this past Sunday to visit the Grand Canyon in

Arizona.” “We are impressed with the progress of our Guyanese flight attendants and we are very pleased that they had a relaxing day visiting one of the wonders of the world,” related Rob Binns, Director of TravelSpan. “We expect to have the individuals back in Guyana by Thursday, June 26. For quite a few of them, that will be their first flight as a certified flight attendant, they will actually be working on the return flight to Guyana. We anticipate having all 14 of them work the flights by

month-end,” Vanita Jagnarain said. In closing, she reiterated that “we are thrilled to be in a position to offer such an amazing opportunity to these young and talented individuals. TravelSpan remains committed to Guyana and to the Guyanese people. We know this move will better help to service our customers.” TravelSpan Incorporated was set to begin direct flights between New York and Guyana starting December 14, 2013 after being cleared by the US Department of Transport. The airline was established in April 2006 and began operations in Guyana shortly after being granted

Special Report on the Rodney Commissio WHAT went wrong with Guyana? Why had the nation plummeted to socio-economic depression, authoritarian dictatorship, food shortages and a crippling housing crisis? Could we avoid that ever happening again to our nation? Guyanese see emerging out of the Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry the answers to these troubling questions, with yesterday’s hearings providing sobering insight into how the Guyanese people suffered from covert political maneuvering and dictatorial abuse of law and order under the autocratic Government of the People’s National Congress (PNC). The PNC rigged elections in Guyana for 28 years, operating as an authoritarian dictatorship, resulting in the political assassination of several Guyanese. Testimony at the Commission yesterday revealed how Guyana sunk to a staggering totalitarian state by the 1980’s. Guyanese citizens saw the PNC Government deny them basic food and freedom of the press, and left them lurching under a crippling housing crisis and devastated local communities. The situation got so draconian and ugly that Guyanese saw the political assassination of their populous political leader and world famous scholar, Dr Walter Rodney, in a bomb blast on the streets of their capital city, Georgetown, on June 13, 1980. The dark secrets, murderous plots and dictatorial conspiracies of the PNC Government lay dormant for over three decades, before President Donald Ramotar overcame obstacles to establish a Presidential Commission to probe why Dr Rodney was assassinated. The Commission’s job is to unearth the truth about why Guyanese saw their nation plummet to the deadly point

of assassinating its foremost historian and intellectual leader, Dr Rodney. Yesterday’s hearing resumed the Commission’s vital task to probe the socio-political dysfunction in Guyana that caused Dr Rodney’s death. Witness Robert Gates resumed his testimony in the Witness Box, dressed in a light green shirt and tie. Under examination from lead Counsel for the Commission, Glen Hanoman, and cross examination from Trinidadian Attorney-at-Law Keith Scotland, who is representing Donald Rodney before the Commission, Gates revealed additional details of his sinister involvement in clandestine conspiracies to assassinate Guyanese citizens under the PNC dictatorship Government. Gates’ testimony before the Commission reveals how

the PNC’s desperate grab for political power, with the State operating a menacing, clandestine “Execution Branch” within the Guyana Police Force that assassinated Guyanese citizens, including Dr Walter Rodney. Under cross examination, Gates said he knows of “25 to 30 people” who the “Execution Branch” assassinated. “Some were justified, and some were not. Two that I know of were members of the Working People’s Alliance (WPA),” Gates said.

Gates had detailed to the Commission how he worked as an undercover Police Officer, involved in a plot of the law-flouting PNC Government, Cecil ‘Skip’ Roberts, ex-Police Crime Chief now residing in the US, Major General (retired) Norman McLean, and the late Police Commissioner, Laurie Lewis, to rob Guyanese citizens of their political human rights. Yesterday, Gates several times named Mr Roberts, Major General (retired) Mc-

Lean, and Lewis, along with PNC ruler and authoritarian Head of State, Forbes Burnham, as masterminds behind the political intrigues that crippled the nation. Himself a colorful character, now serving a jail sentence at the Camp Street jail after being convicted of forgery, Gates shocked the Guyanese nation early this month when he revealed his role as undercover double agent spy, working for the Police under direction of the dictatorship PNC Gov-

on of Inquiry by Shaun Michael Samaroo Gates’ testimony before the Commission reveals how top Army, Police and Government superiors strangled Guyana’s development in the PNC’s desperate grab for political power, with the State operating a menacing, clandestine “Execution Branch” within the Guyana Police Force that assassinated Guyanese citizens, including Dr Walter Rodney. Under cross examination, Gates said he knows of “25 to 30 people” who the “Execution Branch” assassinated. “Some were justified, and some were not.

ship operated uad – Gates testifies ernment, and for Dr Rupert Roopnarine, co-leader of the WPA. Gates faced criticism and hostility from the Counsel before the Commission for the PNC, Mr Basil Williams, because of his troubles with the law. But Gates said most of his testimony could be verified, and he named names with confidence and freedom. He said he recalls that at one public political meeting in Kitty, Georgetown, he pulled his Police

guns on a group of religious fanatics from the cult, the House of Israel, who the PNC Government hired to break up political meetings. The thugs had started pelting broken bottles at the Opposition political speakers, with one bottle hitting Moses Nagamootoo, speaking on the platform on behalf of the People’s Progerssive Party (PPP), on his head. “I pulled my guns on the House of Israel men, and the next day my superiors in the Police Force called me in

and reprimanded me, telling me to leave them alone,” Gates said. The witness, speaking clear and with dignified clarity in the Witness Box, said he personally has knowledge of the operations of a secret body that operated as a joint Armed Forces intelligence organ of the State. This organ got direct orders from Head of State of the dictatorial PNC Government, Mr Forbes Burnham, Gates said, emphasising that the top actors were “Lau-

rie Lewis and Cecil ‘Skip’ Roberts”. Under cross examination, Gates revealed that Roberts, though not head of the Police Force, ignored then Police Commissioner Lloyd Barker to report directly to Mr Burnham. “I know personally that Roberts accompanied Burnham horseback riding,” Gates said, noting that the two men were confidantes. The witness, under a cloud of controversy because the PNC has indicated

its unhappiness with his appearance at the Commission, ignored the criticisms, and testified with ease and comfort. Gates said the Guyana Police Force operated a Special Branch, “which became known as the Death Squad”. Within the Special Branch, the “Execution Branch operated”, tasked with killing Guyanese citizens, Gates revealed under cross examination. Counsel Scotland spent considerable time cross examining Gates to prove that his client, Donald Rodney, was in no way involved in the bomb blast that killed Dr Walter Rodney. The dictatorship PNC Government had charged Donald Rodney with being in possession of explosives, and Scotland cross examined Gates to prove that the Police charged Donald Rodney falsely. The Commission resumes tomorrow, with Gates still in the stand. Several key witnesses are lined up to appear at this session of the Commission’s sitting, which adjourns on July 2 next. In the audience today, Dr Rupert Roopnarine sat quietly in the audience, and listened with rapt attention as his name came up several times. Gates has testified that Dr Roopnarine paid him as an undercover spy, on behalf of the WPA. Yesterday, the name of a recurring mysterious agent of the Russian secret service, the KGB, came up several times as well, as the political intrigue and dark conspiracies take on international implications. Gates said the KGB agent trained him, along with suspected assassinator of Dr Walter Rodney, the late Gregory Smith, to operate explosive electronics, and also provided them with

“technical help”. Gates met the mystery KGB undercover agent with Laurie Lewis and his handlers within the Police Force at the Pegasus Hotel. Gates said the Russian spy worked in Guyana as a consultant to the dictatorship PNC Government, to provide technical assistance in clandestine political plots to harm, harass and assassinate Guyanese citizens, a point that Counsel Scotland emphasised in his cross examination. The Commission resumes its work today at the High Court building in Georgetown, with Guyanese all across the world showing keen interest in the revelations of dark political plots. The hearing is streamed live worldwide for free online by the National Communication Network (NCN). President Ramotar has said that the Presidential C o m m i s s i o n , o ff i c i a l l y called the Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry, aims to provide answers for the family of Dr Rodney, and the Guyanese people, along with the WPA, as to why Guyanese Dr Rodney died in a bomb blast in his car. Commission members are Chairman Sir Richard Cheltenham of Barbados, Mr Seenath Jairam of Trinidad and Tobago, and Ms Jacqueline Samuel-Brown of Jamaica. Guyanese all across the world, especially the young generation, focus riveted attention to the testimonies coming out of the Commission, as for the first time the nation is seeing why Guyana suffered a socio-economic collapse in the 1970’s and 1980’s, and how the dictatorial PNC Government treated Guyanese citizens, with such authoritarian disdain.

Crime Chief confirms receiving Junior Torrington’s file from PCA

CRIME Chief Leslie James told the Guyana Chronicle on Friday, that the file pertaining to the Junior Torrington torture investigation has been sent to him from the Office of the Chairman of the Police Complaints Authority, after the latter had finished perusing it, and that it would shortly be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions for advice. There had been some amount of confusion, earlier

in the week, regarding the whereabouts of this file and the time the police were taking to complete investigations. The PCA Chairman had recently told this publication that he was unable to advance investigations into the teenager’s complaint because the file had been sent to him without the medical report regarding the young man’s injuries; and the GPHC CEO had informed this

publication that the police had not, as is customary, made an official request to have Torrington’s medical supplied. The police subsequently issued a release stating that it has been encountering huge obstacles in having the GPHC issue a medical report regarding Torrington’s injuries. The police release stated that numerous police requests in this regard had been met with a counter-request to return for the

medical in a few days’ time, only to find that the medical report had still not been prepared. While he was in custody at the Sparendaam Police Station, Junior Torrington’s hands had been burnt by a detective constable using methylated spirits and

a lighter. The incident has caused the police to take immediate short-term action against the culpable rank and other ranks at the Sparendaam Police Station, but the matter remains under investigation. After the incident, the errant rank had offered

one of Torrington’s parents one hundred thousand dollars as settlement in the matter; but according to the teen’s attorney, Mr Dexter Todd, the understanding was that the money was to be a means of assisting with transportation expenses.(Leroy Smith)

Justice William Ramlal to rule on defence no-case submission in the Ramsohai murder trial By George Barclay

ATTORNEY-AT-LAW Mr. Peter Hugh, defending Ramsohai Boodhoo, called Baejie, who is accused of murdering Eon Daniels on July 8, 2011, submitted to Justice William Ramlal last week, at close of the prosecution’s case, that a case had not been made out for his client to answer, and he intends to lead relevant submissions in support of his contention in the absence of the jury. Judge William Ramlal, thus, decided to conduct a voir dire (a trial within a trial) to determine the issue. During the substantive trial, it was alleged that the now deceased Eon Daniels had entered a row as a peacemaker when he was stabbed and killed; but the defence lawyer is contending that there is neither direct or circumstantial evidence to show that the accused had committed the crime, and further, that the prosecution had failed to prove that Daniels did not receive his injury accidentally. On the other hand, Prosecutrix Ms. Dhanika Singh, contending that the necessary elements in the case had been proven, has asked that the matter be sent to the jury. The outcome of the trial will depend on the ruling this morning.

Friday night shooting/robbery…

Money changer dies hours after being declared brain dead By Leroy Smith FORTY-four-year-old Wendell Liverpool, the money changer father of four who had been shot three times after he had attempted to wrestle three men who had pounced on him and stripped him of his gold jewellery and money at a shop in West Ruimveldt, Georgetown, last Friday night, succumbed to his injuries in the Intensive Care Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital after two days of being unresponsive to treatment. His demise was confirmed yesterday by hospital officials and family members, who had on Sunday informed media operatives that Liverpool had been listed as brain dead by doctors at the hospital, and was breathing only with the aid of a life-support machine. Liverpool had lived a mere two corners from where he had been attacked. The Guyana Chronicle was informed that Liverpool

had been ‘liming’ with one of his brothers when the masked robbers walked into the shop, but the police have said that the bandits were identifiable,

although they did not specify whether to the deceased or to someone else. Speaking with the Guyana Chronicle on Saturday

Money changer Wendell Liverpool

afternoon, Ms Bernice Liverpool, the man’s mother, said her son, who changes money in downtown Georgetown, would usually wear much jewellery, and she had often advised him against this practice; but he would ignore her concerns, his firm response had always been- that anyone who wanted to strip him of his belongings would have to kill him to do so. Ms Liverpool related that on the night in question, her son had resisted his robbers, forcing them to shoot him in the back, neck and buttocks. She also disclosed that Friday’s incident was not Wendell’s first encounter with robbers. She recalled

that, some two years ago, two men had attempted to invade their home, but Wendell had been able to wrestle one of them to the ground; and the other, upon seeing that, had sprinted from the home. A police source yesterday confirmed Wendell Liverpool’s death, and disclosed that the hunt continues for the suspects who are responsible. The source said the police are also looking to get information from the public with regard to the incident, so that the culprits can be brought to justice. The late Wendell Liverpool leaves to mourn his four children, besides his siblings and mother. Over the last few months,

there have been several shootings within the city and its environs, and this has caused the Guyana Police Force to increase the numbers of both its uniformed and plainclothes ranks around certain areas. Crime Chief Leslie James informed this publication on Saturday, in an invited comment, that the police are working on several leads with respect to the robbery. He said the late Wendell had apparently known his shooters, and he pointed out that the attackers had likely known that their victim was a money changer and would have lots of jewellery on him.


Occupational therapy (OT) helps people engage in activities that they need or want to do in their daily lives. These activities, or occupations, bring pleasure or a sense of purpose to one’s life, and thus are vital to personal well-being. Occupations - like eating, bathing, working, or socializing – can be impaired by stroke, physical trauma, or mental illness, for example. Similarly, children with learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, or autism, may need assistance in school or developing skills for play and selfcare. OT helps people of all ages surmount disabilities by first working to identify areas in daily life where the individual has trouble and then tailoring the intervention plan to meet their needs and environment. OT interventions may help enhance skills or regain strength to perform occupations, or modify environments or activities to support participation and performance. Occupational Therapy and Stroke • Prevent a stroke by increasing exercise and eating a diet low in salt, sugar and fat. Reduce cigarette and alcohol use and monitor blood pressure. • Know the warning signs which include: sudden numbness of the face, arm or leg;

GUYANA CHRONICLE Tuesday June 24, 2014

trouble speaking or understanding; vision problems; dizziness or loss of balance; severe headache with unknown cause. Tips for People Affected by Stroke 1. Increase strength and endurance by staying active and practising patience – Engage in gentle exercise or stretching daily. Try to do things independently and involve your affected side, even if the activity takes longer or materials need to be adapted. For example, build up handles by wrapping them in foam, cardboard, or a sponge to make them easier to grasp. Talk with other stroke survivors for support. 2. Reduce fatigue – When sleeping on your unaffected side, place a pillow between your knees and the affected arm out in front supported by pillows. Conserve your energy by breaking activities into steps and taking breaks in between those steps. 3. Medication management – List all medications or carry them in one bag and bring this to medical appointments. Include non-prescribed drugs or herbal remedies so that your doctor is informed. Set up reminders to manage medications. 4. Prevent falls– Remove rugs and clutter. Leave a light on and cane or walker near the bed at night. Wear sturdy, nonslip footwear, even when getting up to use the washroom. Installing grab bars or 5. Adapt to changes in memory and concentration – Make checklists for activities. Put things away in the same spot to make them easier to find. Perform challenging activities where there are fewer distractions to your vision or your hearing.

Father of two dies after - wife suspects debts ingesting poison triggered his decision By Leroy Smith HARDEO Nauth, 37, of 44 Good Hope, Mahaica, East Coast Demerara died at the Georgetown Public Hospital early Sunday morning after being admitted there following his ingestion of a poisonous substance. Nauth, a driver attached to the Trooper Taxi Service, reportedly drank the substance while on his way from work. Speaking with the Guyana Chronicle newspaper, yes-

terday afternoon, his reputed wife Indranie Singh said that the man left for work early Saturday morning and returned in the evening just after 19:00 hrs. She said that when her husband arrived home he asked his 12-year-old daughter to lock up the vehicle and he proceeded to the stairs of the house where he sat crying. The woman added that when she observed the man crying she asked him the reason but he did not answer her. She called several other per-

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 - 14:30 Wednesday, June 25, 2014 - 14:30 Thursday, June 26, 2014 - 14:30

sons who came and after much questioning, the man admitted that he drank a poisonous substance. The man was immediately placed in a vehicle and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he died hours after. Singh related that she has been living with the man in a common law relationship for the past 13 years and they had some rough times. She said too that whenever they had domestic issues the man would pack up and leave his home for days. The two have two children together, ages 12 and 4. Singh told the Chronicle that this time they were not having any issues so she is at a loss to figure why he wanted to end his life. Several persons who worked with the man and who spoke with this newspaper said that he arrived for work as normal on Saturday and operated as if everything was just alright. Singh told the Chronicle that apart from the minor issues the two would have, the man was facing several debts and was finding it difficult to honour them. She noted that he was indebted to Courts Guyana Inc., IPED, a mechanic and also the persons from whom he had purchased the vehicle. Over the last few months there have been several cases of suicide and attempted suicides by both adults and children. The Ministry of Human Services and Social Security, the Ministry of Health and several other organisations have been focusing on the issue.

Aries - March 21 - April 19 If any sign is equipped to handle arguments, it’s you. Your ruling planet is Mars, the ancient God of War, and this means your astrological job is assertion. You’d never admit it, of course, but deep down, there’s something about the adrenaline conjured by conflict that’s positively addictive to you. So if, quite out of the blue, you need to take a stand, whether it’s for yourself or for a loved one, that definitely won’t be a problem. Just warn any innocent bystanders before the chase scene begins. Taurus - April 20 - May 20 You’ll be quite busy now, and for all the right reasons: A certain someone will keep you happily occupied, in all departments. You’ll be quite absorbed with them -- not just because of their appeal, but because of their common sense and wit -- and quite unable to concentrate on anything else. Gemini - May 21 - June 21 Ready for a break in the action? Well, it’s about time -- and a surprise message will bring you just that happy news. Since you’ve been out so much lately, you’ll actually be in the mood to relax tonight with friends, chatting over the news. In fact, regardless of the plans you’ve made, you may be much more likely to insist on staying in and either cooking or ordering out, simply to please a party of two. It’s okay. We all like to hide out from time to time. After all this celebrating, it’s certainly your turn. Cancer - June 22 - July 22 Here’s another day that’s tailor-made for staying in with friends and just plain old relaxing. Like the last time you planned something, it’s definitely going to shake things up. You won’t mind much, because this day will arrive with some extremely benevolent planetary ambassadors along for the ride, ready to ensure that all goes well. Needless to say, you can officially allow yourself to have fun and let loose. There’s a wonderful safety net under you. Leo - July 23 - August 22 It’s definitely not like you to prefer staying home to strutting your stuff in public -but at the moment, there’s really nothing you’d rather do than snuggle up with your sweetheart and make the world go away. Telling you not to let anyone talk you out of this temporary hibernation just isn’t necessary. After all, when did you ever let anyone talk you in or out of anything? Just say ‘no’ gently. Virgo - August 23 - September 22 The urge to say exactly what’s on your mind has hit, thanks to a new friend who’s nothing if not strongly opinionated. The more you associate with them, the more you can expect some rather odd and coincidental occurrences over the course of the day. Feeling as you do, it’s also a given that what you’ll be saying will be a bit over the top -- especially to those who aren’t used to seeing you in this condition. Don’t even try to hold anything back, though. It’s your turn to vent. Big time. They’ll get over it. Libra - September 23 - October 22 Today’s astrological agenda has got you thinking about how to add a bit more cash to your wallet -- and you’ve got some ideas. One of them is quite good -- it involves making money by turning your hobby into a part-time job. Nice. The best part is that since eclipses don’t mess around, you may eventually end up doing the hobby fulltime and your ‘job’ part-time. Even better, hmm? Scorpio - October 23 - November 21 Oh, this is going to be interesting -- that’s for sure. You’re feeling restless and the subterranean shifts you’ve been surfing for the past several months are starting to come to the surface. It’s time to make some serious changes in your life -- and you know exactly where to start, don’t you? As usual, you’ll begin at the bottom and work your way up. Just let your loved ones know the news as gently as possible. They might not be prepared for this. Sagittarius - November 22 - December 20 Oh, here we go. Another day of mixed astrological energies and it’s carrying its own special brand of surprises right along with it. This certainly does mean that a secret you’ve been jealously guarding may be revealed, much to your chagrin. Just be sure that your dear one isn’t caught off guard. You owe it to them to let them know what’s going on -- especially after last night. Capricorn - December 21 - January 19 Ready for some fireworks? Good -- because there’s a whole bunch on the way. Today’s heavenly menu will urge you to make some changes with regard to your goals for the future -- and this certainly could mean that you’ll feel the need to begin associating with a whole new peer group. If that’s the case, try to ease away from the usual suspects gently -- or at least offer to take the ones along who’ll know how to act. Aquarius - January 20 - February 18 You need change, and you need it badly. Of course, you love change, so that’s really nothing new, but today’s cosmic agenda is making it feel all the more urgent to get the show on the road. Now, this could mean that you’re preparing to storm into your boss’s office in the morning and make some startling demands -- but think about that. You know how authority figures react to ultimatums, right? And it’s not usually all that well, is it? Oh, well. At least they’ve come to expect this from you. Pisces - February 19 - March 20 Your psychic abilities are legendary, so when something seems to be out of whack, it doesn’t need to be happening in the same room -- or house, or city, or country for that matter -- for you to know about it. You just know -- and many times, you’re the first to know. At the moment, one tiny fact that’s out of place is bothering you. Don’t hesitate to follow up on it. The good news is that you’ll be quite relieved and happy when you discover that what’s up this time is a happy surprise, via a loved one. But you didn’t hear it here!

GUYANA CHRONICLE Tuesday June 24, 2014

Murray, Djokovic begin in style at Wimbledon … Stosur crashes out

By Martyn Herman LONDON, England (Reuters) - All was as it should be on the opening day of Wimbledon when returning British hero Andy Murray opened the defence of his historic title with an impressive first-round victory yesterday. Under bright skies, with the Centre Court grass

Andy Murray glistening, his grandparents in the royal box and Murray resplendent in spotless white attire, the 27-year-old walked out to a standing ovation and rewarded his fans by dismantling Belgium’s David Goffin 6-1, 6-4, 7-5. Men’s top seed Novak Djokovic, the man Murray beat in spine-tingling fashion last July to become the first home men’s singles champion at the All England Club for 77 years, also began in style, crushing Andrey Golubev 6-0, 6-1, 6-4 in his first grasscourt outing of the year. Dark horse Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria, winner of the Queen’s Club grasscourt title this month, and sixth-seeded Czech Tomas Berdych both eased into the second round but there were some early casualties in the women’s draw, notably former U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur, the 17th seed, losing to Belgian Yanina Wickmayer. Women’s second seed Li Na suffered an early fright when she trailed 5-3 to Polish qualifier Paula Kania before completing a 7-5, 6-2 victory against the world No.183 making her Wimbledon debut. It has not all been plain sailing for Murray since that scorching Sunday afternoon when he ended decades of British men’s failure at the most famous tournament in the sport. Spinal surgery, a split with coach Ivan Lendl and up-anddown form meant there were

a few question marks over the third seed as he prepared for two weeks of Murray Mania. But, with new coach Amelie Mauresmo watching, Murray went through his full repertoire against a lightweight opponent who played the supporting role to perfection, engaging in some eye-catching rallies without threatening to rain on Murray’s parade.

- including 27 000 pounds ($45 900) for those bowing out in the first round. Australia’s Stosur will have to make do with that tidy sum after losing 6-3, 6-4 to Wickmayer on a packed Court Three. “I mean, in some ways it’s good and in some ways it sucks, because you’re done; you wait another four or five weeks till you get to

Novak Djokovic “I enjoyed it for the walk to the chair. Then when I sat down, it was time to get on with business,” Murray, seeking to become the first man to retain the title since Roger Federer in 2007, told reporters. “I was nervous yesterday. I was probably a bit more nervous yesterday than I was today. But it does help if you can get ahead early, like I did at the beginning of the match, I got an early break, that helped settle them down a little bit.” Only in the third set did Goffin, a more dangerous player than his 104th ranking suggests, have Murray sweating, earning two break points in the fourth game but his chance came and went before the crowd favourite turned the screws. “I thought it was a very highstandard match. I was glad to finish it in three,” Murray, who will play Slovenia’s Blaz Rola in round two, added. BIG-NAME CASUALTY While the samba beat and carnival atmosphere dominate in the soccer World Cup in far-flung Brazil, the 128th gathering of the world’s top tennis players in suburban southwest London provided a more tranquil setting for the thousands of fans streaming through the gates. Strawberries and cream and Pimms, rather than bikinis and caipirinhas, are the traditional currency at Wimbledon which is this year boasting record prize-money

play again,” Stosur, who has a lamentable record at Wimbledon where she has now lost six first-round matches, said. American 18th seed Sloane Stephens, a quarter-finalist here last year, was also out before desserts were served in the posh hospitality areas, losing 6-2, 7-6(6), to Russian Maria Kirilenko. Men’s 18th seed Fernando Verdasco, who led Murray by two sets in the quarter-finals last year before succumbing, was also bundled out in four sets by Australian Marinko Matosevic. There was an early scare, too, for Berdych, but he rallied from a set down to beat Romania’s Victor Hanescu while Dimitrov, boyfriend of Maria Sharapova, dispatched American Ryan Harrison. Djokovic, in his first competitive match since losing to Rafael Nadal in the French Open final, made a mockery of rumours about his fitness when he won the first 11 games against Kazakhstan’s Golubev. Crunching winners left, right and centre, the Serb father-tobe was in unstoppable form as he put down an ominous marker. “It’s never easy, you can never underestimate any opponent especially with no matches under your belt coming into Wimbledon,” he said. “I started extremely well; serving great and just played a very good game for the first match.”

Neymar’s superb... “The main thing today wasn’t the result but the way the team played, getting back the spirit that we had in (last year’s) Confederations Cup,” Fernandinho said in a television interview. “In the first two games of the World Cup we missed that a bit,” added the midfielder. Mexico finished level on seven points with Brazil thanks to their 3-1 victory against Croatia and went through in second place due to an inferior goal difference. They will play Group A winners the Netherlands, who beat Chile 2-0 earlier yesterday. Mexico took a 3-0 lead with late goals in Recife, rattling Brazilian nerves until Croatia scored and Fernandinho, who was introduced at halftime, made it 4-1 in Brasilia. Brazil were ahead after 17 minutes when Luiz Gustavo won the ball on the left and his low cross was perfectly weighted for Neymar, in space in the centre of the penalty area, to deftly guide

the ball into the far corner. Cameroon refused to capitulate and were level nine minutes later when Allan Nyom squared for Joel Matip to sidefoot into an empty net and momentarily silence the home fans. Shouts of “Brazil! Brazil!” then rang out around the vast arena and the hosts were back in front in the 35th minute when Neymar ran at the defence and clipped a low shot past a wrongfooted Charles Itandje in the Cameroon goal. Brazil made a similarly brisk start to the second period and David Luiz popped up on the left wing in the 49th to chip the ball to the far post for Fred to head home. Neymar came off to a rapturous reception and was replaced by Willian in the 71st minute before Fernandinho clipped the ball into the corner after a well-worked move six minutes from time to complete an impressive win for the tournament favourites.

Amateur boxers... GBA Tournament Director Terrence Poole, Sebert Blake, Francisco Roldan and national coach Wincell Thomas are the four coaches selected to oversee the squad. Boxers would be drawn from Berbice, Essequibo and Georgetown. The GBA head would not name the squad but the Chronicle was informed by a reliable source that Travis Fraser, Michael and Tyrone Lashley are the three Berbicians set to make the trip to Seweyo. Ninvalle was loud in praise

for Chief of Staff Brigadier Mark Phillips and the Guyana Defence Force for their timely assistance. “We are extremely grateful to the Chief of Staff for his magnanimity. “I think that he is cognisant of the needs of amateur boxing and national effort and the national cause.

Mathews, Prasad leave England on the brink … Skipper Angelo Mathews strokes magnificent 160; Prasad takes four wickets England when he tempted Jayawardene (79) to offer an edge to keeper Matt Prior before Plunkett accounted for Dinesh Chandimal (seven) and Prasad (duck) in consecutive balls. Mathews seized the moment and, together with Rangana Herath, he put Sri Lanka on top. After being dropped by Plunkett on 87, Mathews reached three figures with a cut through the off side.

By Tom Hayward LEEDS, England (Reuters) - Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews and paceman Dhammika Prasad pushed England to the brink of defeat as the home side, set 350 to win, slumped to 57 for five on the fourth day of the second and final Test yesterday. Mathews stroked a magnificent 160 to help Sri Lanka power their way to a second-innings total of 457 at Headingley after resuming on 214 for four. Paceman Liam Plunkett claimed two victims in two balls for the second time in the game as he added figures of four for 112 to his firstinnings haul of five for 64. Prasad then produced a fiery spell of fast bowling to rip the heart out of England’s batting by removing skipper Alastair Cook (16) and Gary Ballance (duck), in consecutive balls, Sam Robson (24) and Ian Bell (eight). “After the first couple of days we never thought we would be in this position,” Mathews told Sky Sports

We had to counterattack and whenever we got loose balls we wanted to score. “The job is only half done. We need to take five wickets

and will stick to our basics.” England, trailing by only 106 runs, seemed to have the upper hand at the start of the day but Mathews and Mahela Jayawardene wrested away the initiative by scoring freely in the opening hour. James Anderson lifted

11 fours. Curbing his natural attacking flair, the right-hander settled down add 48 for the first wicket with captain Rob Key (34) before adding a further 39 for the third wicket with former West Indies vice-captain Brendan Nash who got 21. The key stand came with Darren Stevens who scored 45, as the pair added a crucial 91 for the fifth wicket. Once Stevens was out, however, Kent lost four wickets for just seven runs, with BellDrummond seventh out. Experienced seamer

Villa, Torres help give Spain a winning farewell

Bell-Drummond strokes hundred for Kent C A N T E R B U R Y, England (CMC) – Opener Daniel BellDrummond, who qualifies to play for West Indies through his parentage, stroked a third first class century to keep Kent afloat on the opening day of their County Championship clash against Derbyshire here Sunday. The 20-year-old, who has Jamaican parents, gathered a patient 101 to push Kent up to 259 for eight after they won the toss and opted to bat first at St Lawrence Ground. Bell-Drummond faced 268 balls in 5-3/4 hours at the crease and struck

LUSTY PULLS Herath also went on the attack with a series of lusty pull shots and hard-hit drives as the pair put on 149 for the eighth wicket. Joe Root ended the partnership when he threw down the stumps at the nonstriker’s end with a direct hit, removing Herath for 48. A four through extra cover carried Mathews past his previous Test-best 157 not out but he was out to the next delivery, spooning the ball straight to Moeen Ali off Anderson who finished with figures of three for 91.

Kent opener Daniel Bell-Drummond Tony Palladino was the best bowler with five for 54. Bell-Drummond, born in south London to parents Percy and Maisie, has already played for England Under-19s. Kent is coached by former West Indies captain Jimmy Adams.

CURITIBA, (Reuters) - Strikers David Villa and Fernando Torres scored yesterday to help give deposed champions Spain a comfortable consolation win after a miserable World Cup when they beat Australia 3-0. Villa neatly backheeled the opener in the 36th minute after Spain carved open the Australian defence. Torres slid home in the 69th minute when set clear in the penalty box. Substitute Juan Mata rolled a third goal

between the legs of goalkeeper Mat Ryan in the 82nd minute as Australia ran out of steam. Spain had nothing but pride to play for after losing their first two games. Australia were also on their way home after defeats to Chile and the Netherlands. Coach Vicente del Bosque made seven changes from the Spanish team that started the 2-0 defeat by Chile. Midfielder Andres Iniesta kept his place and won his 100th cap. Iniesta, scorer of the

Spain as he prepares to play in MLS soccer next year. Australia almost hit back immediately, goalkeeper Pepe Reina hacking the ball clear in a goalmouth scramble. That was a rare threat from an inexperienced Australian team who missed the presence of suspended leading scorer Tim Cahill up front.

Dutch down Chile, look like dodging Brazil By Mike Collett-White SAO PAULO, Brazil (Reuters) - A powerful and pacey Netherlands side beat Chile 2-0 yesterday in a game that only burst into life late on, securing them top spot in World Cup Group B and meaning a tricky meeting with hosts Brazil in the last 16 looks unlikely. Substitute Leroy Fer scored with his first touch of the tournament, thumping home a close-range header in the 77th minute. Another replacement, Memphis Depay, made it two in stoppage- time after a marauding Arjen Robben broke down the left, turning what had been a scrappy match short of goal-mouth action into a comfortable win for the Dutch. The Netherlands ended the group stage on a perfect nine points with Chile behind them on six Reigning

champions Spain finished third on three points after beating Australia 3-0. “I think it was a match played at the very highest level, and the more clever team won,” coach Louis van Gaal told reporters, having seen his players frustrate Chile and reduce them to a single shot on target, and that from a tight angle. Man-of-the-match Robben said he was proud of the Dutch defence, an aspect of their play that has been overshadowed so far by a fearsome attack that had to do without Robin van Persie, who was suspended after receiving two yellow cards. “It was a very good game to watch, there was a lot of passion on the pitch; we defended really well. I am proud of the way the team defended,” Robben said in a television interview. “I think we did a great job and this is not where we want to stop. It is a fantastic result

and a fantastic performance and we don’t want it to end here, we need to change our mindset as we want to move forward.” van Gaal would not be drawn on whether he would be pleased to avoid Brazil in the round of 16 match. The hosts are expected to top Group A after they meet Cameroon later in the day, with Croatia and Mexico also in contention to progress. “There’s nothing I can change about this so I am not going to answer,” he said. BOSSED POSSESSION Chile, already qualified but knowing only a win would secure top spot owing to an inferior goal difference, pressed hardest and bossed possession, but their lone effort on goal summed up a frustrating afternoon for the South Americans. Despite the impressive support of a large Chile contingent in the stands

Hernandez inspires Mexico into last 16 with Croatia win By Toby Davis RECIFE, Brazil (Reuters) - Javier Hernandez came off the bench to help Mexico reach the last 16 of the World Cup as their watertight defence and swift counterattacks gave them a 3-1 win against Croatia yesterday, to emerge from Group A as runners-up behind Brazil. Mexico, who will face Group B winners Netherlands in Fortaleza on Sunday, had looked happy to hold out for the draw that would have seen them into the knockout stages, before the Manchester United forward came on to turn the match on its head. Within 10 minutes of Hernandez entering, Rafael Marquez put Mexico ahead with a powerful header, before Andres Guardado rounded off a swift counter attack and Hernandez himself finished with a closerange header. Mexico briefly flirted with top spot in the group, needing one more goal to depose Brazil before the tournament hosts got a fourth against Cameroon. Ivan Perisic then grabbed a late consolation for Croatia who had substitute Ante Rebic sent off in the dying stages for a studs-up challenge. Mexico, securing a sixth successive appearance in the second round, finished second in the group with seven points, behind Brazil on goal difference after the hosts beat Cameroon 4-1. Having snuffed out both Brazil and Cameroon in their previous two games, Mexico’s backline restricted Croatia to a handful of half-chances in the opening 45 minutes, with Perisic slicing their best effort

Mexico’s Hector Herrera rattled the crossbar with a vicious left-foot drive from distance after 15 minutes but the second half was almost entirely controlled by the men in green, however, and after they had a strong penalty appeal turned down, they took the lead with 18 minutes to play. Captain Marquez rose powerfully in the area to head a cross from the left into the bottom corner. Three minutes later and the largely Mexican crowd were rocking in the aisles as Guardado was allowed to arrive unmarked at the far post and finish off a sweeping counterattack with a crisp finish past Croatia keeper Stipe Pletikosa. Hernandez got his goal with eight minutes remaining, heading a Marquez flick-on from a corner into an unguarded goal.

(Credit: Reuters/ Paulo Whitaker) of Corinthians arena in Sao Paulo, they foundered time and again on a wall of orange and the absence of influential midfielder Arturo Vidal cost them dearly. Vidal, who had knee surgery last month, told reporters on Sunday that he was ready to play, but coach Jorge Sampaoli appeared to have the knockout stages in mind when he left him on the bench. Alexis Sanchez dropped deep and worked hard to pull the strings in midfield, but the Netherlands were strong

in the tackle and grew into the game after being eclipsed early on. “I think that this was a match that we expected, with the Netherlands trying to use lots of people on the counterattack,” said Sampaoli. “We looked for victory, we wanted to win and we couldn’t find a solution to a team that only defended and only aspired to long-range shots, not even counter-attacks. “Chile are now most likely to face Brazil in the last 16 on Saturday and the Netherlands are expected

to play either Croatia or Mexico on Sunday. Chile’s best result at a World Cup came on home soil in 1962, when they finished third. In 1998 and 2010 they reached the last 16, only to exit at the hands of Brazil on both occasions. “This is a Chile that I am proud to be at the helm of, in spite of the fact that we didn’t get a result,” Sampaoli said. “They have their heads held high and they are getting ready for the round of 16.”

Gibson hopes Oval pitch provides pace for Windies quicks BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) – Head coach Ottis Gibson says he is hoping his three-pronged pace attack finds some pace in the Kensington Oval pitch, as West Indies chase a series victory over New Zealand in the final Test which bowls off here Thursday. The Windies seamers found life difficult on a flat surface in the Sabina Park Test which the hosts lost by 186 runs inside four days and also struggled on a similar pitch at Queen’s Park Oval last week, when they won by ten wickets to level the three-Test series. Gibson said the victory had given the Windies momentum and said a pacy pitch would provide the ideal conditions for his attack to flourish in what was a decisive Test. “Momentum is a great thing in sport. You hear people talk about it in every sport and we have it at the

has a little bit in it for the bowlers as well. Trinidad was a very un-Trinidad-like pitch; it was a good pitch for

batting and the bowlers had to work hard. It was probably one of the best pitches I’ve seen in Trinidad for a long time.” He continued: “Hopefully we’ll get a very good surface in Barbados, one that helps our quick bowlers a little bit more than maybe Trinidad and Jamaica. Our fast bowlers are bowling fantastically well so hopefully we get a pitch that gives them a little bit of support and they can continue to bowl the way they have been bowling and bowl us to a series win.” Fast bowlers Jerome Taylor and Kemar Roach have performed outstandingly in the series but without the success to match. Taylor, in his first series in nearly five years, has taken ten wickets while Roach has claimed seven scalps. Speedster Shannon Gabriel, who missed the first Test, picked up two wickets

Thomas, Foster medal at Sagicor Open Championships GUYANA’S Cleveland Thomas and Andrea Foster last Saturday won silver medals for their performance in the men’s and women’s 1500m respectively, at the NGC/ Sagicor Open Championships being held at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Trinidad and Tobago. Thomas clocked 4:01.04s to finish just behind Trinidad and Tobago’s Defence Force athlete George Smith who completed the race in 4:00.64s, while third place went to Smith’s team mate Quincy Elliot who was just behind Thomas with his 4:01.56s end. Foster was second behind Memphis Pioneers’ Dawnell Collymore after she finished the race with

a time of 5:10.78s. Collymore ended in a time of 4:48.31s.. Foster and Thomas are two of a number of Guyanese athletes participating at the event, which began last Friday and concluded yesterday. In other results from Saturday, Alisha Fortune qualified for the women’s 100m final with a time of 12.17s, and ended with an ultimate time of 12.03 seconds in the final, while Kadeem Peters and Selwyn Foster both participated in the men’s 400m but failed to place into the final, clocking 52.79 seconds and 50.55 seconds, respectively. Akeem Steward contested in the men’s 100m but also failed to place in the final.

in each innings of the Trinidad Test. More importantly, Gibson said West Indies would be looking to apply the same intensity to the third Test that they brought to the second encounter, and which gave them the win. “To win by ten wickets was brilliant and we are looking forward to the next Test match and five intense days of Test cricket,” Gibson said. “I think the Test cricket that we played in Trinidad - that is the sort of Test cricket that we want to play. Obviously the opposition is not going to allow you to play that sort of cricket all the time but that’s the cricket we want to play and that’s what we will set out to do.” Gibson praised the team for the way they approached the second Test, noting that the batsmen played attacking cricket but were also patient

while the bowlers stuck to their tasks, keeping on top the New Zealand batsmen. However, he said it was now important to re-focus. “After Jamaica we were obviously very disappointed with how we performed, and we sat and spoke about the response that was needed and it was good to see them respond,” said Gibson. “The batsmen spent a lot of time at the wicket and made runs. Young (Jermaine) Blackwood has been making a lot of runs this year and we gave him an opportunity and he came in and played really positively and was a joy to see. “I thought the bowlers bowled well in Jamaica and we backed it up in Trinidad on a pitch where we had to work really hard. All in all it was a very good response and we’ve just got to move on now.”

4th Annual Digicel Schools Football Championships

St Cuthbert’s Mission crush Achievers Academy 6-0 WITH a capacity crowd on hand that included their Village Toshao Luke Simon, St Cuthbert’s Mission, led by a hattrick of goals from Nixon D’Oliveira, inflicted a crushing 6-0 win over tournament debutants Achievers Academy yesterday, at St Cuthbert’s Mission ground in Region 4 last Sunday. Playing in the fourth Annual Digicel Schools Football Championships in soggy conditions, Achievers Academy were given a torrid introduction to the tournament, especially with the partisan support that roared vociferously all afternoon in support of their team. D’Oliveira found the back of the net in the 19th, 28th and 33rd minutes, while Paul Henry (26th), Zak Ferreira (37th) and Levland Jacobs (66th) were also on target for the winning team. After an opening period that saw both teams threatening to score, the hosts eventually entered the scoresheet courtesy of a penalty which was awarded by referee Dion Inniss for a handled ball inside the box, which D’Oliveira nonchalantly dispatched into the right side of the goal. Urged on by their supporters, the home team continued to attack and managed to increase their advantage

fine run from the halfway line. No team managed to score after and St Cuthbert’s clinched the win and with it a meeting with Soesdyke in their next fixture. Meanwhile, the persistent weather conditions that prevailed throughout the Capital City for the past 48 hours, forced a postponement of yesterday’s matches, while at the Rosignol Community Centre ground in West Berbice, Number 8 Secondary won

screaming shot over the outstretched hands of a scrambling Shawn Harry and into the far corner to take a comfortable 3-0 lead. D’Oliveira was not finished as he calmly lashed in a penalty that was awarded to his team, following a second handled ball inside the sacred area, leaving Inniss with no choice but to award the spot kick and despite both teams playing their hearts out for

the duration of the first half, no more goals materialised and St Cuthbert’s took a handy 4-0 advantage to the break.

Neymar’s superb double shoots Brazil through to last 16 By Iain Rogers BRASILIA, Brazil (Reuters) - Brazil forward Neymar shot to the top of the World Cup scoring charts with a superb double in a 4-1 win over Cameroon yesterday that sent the hosts through as Group A winners to face Chile in the last 16. After grabbing a brace in Brazil’s 3-1 win against Croatia in their opening game at the finals, Neymar was again the star of the show at an electric national stadium. The 22-year-old struck twice in the first half either side of Joel Matip’s goal for alreadyeliminated Cameroon, Fred nodded home at the start of the second and substitute Fernandinho scored a late fourth.
