Six years after maintaining absolute silence on allegations of domestic abuse leveled against him former President Bharrat Jagdeo has said that despite numerous claims being circulated he never resorted to physical violence against his ex-wife, Varshnie Singh.

Jagdeo, who spoke out in defence of women, yesterday, stated that the only act of physical violence against women he had ever been involved in was when he was a lad of 10 years and had tussles with his older sisters.

He made these remarks during a press briefing at Freedom House, Robb Street, on April 22.  At the time, he was asked about Minister of Health, Dr. Bheri Ramsaran’s confrontation with a female activist on Monday April 20.   Continue reading

Guyana: The arrogant and sick Government Minister – commentary

Bherri Ramsarran vs Nageer

Dr, Bherri Ramsarran being confronted by Sherlena Nageer

On Monday, the Health Minister of Government Dr. Bheri Ramsaran created quite a stir during a confrontation with a female protestor (Ms Sherlena Nageer), outside the Whim Magistrate’s Court. In the process he demonstrated the kind of arrogance that Government Ministers and officials exhibit these days.

Indeed, this is not the first time that a government official will be confronted by a member of the public and lose his temper, neither will it be the last. But for the greater part Government officials exercise restraint because in the final analysis the very people they confirm can determine their future.  Continue reading

APNU+AFC promises-salary hike for law enforcers; gun amnesty, crackdown on corruption, drugs

APNU+AFC promises hefty salary hike for law enforcers; gun amnesty, crackdown on corruption, drugs

Thursday, 23 April 2015 21:27 –  Written by   -CND

The opposition coalition A Partnership for National Unity+ Alliance For Change (APNU+ AFC) is promising a 20 percent salary hike for all law enforcement officers in the first year, and a crack down on white collar crime, drug trafficking and illegal guns.

With the starting salary of constables just around GY$60,000 (US$300), the coalition hopes that an initial 20 percent hike in salaries will be among several measures that will help policemen and women go after criminals. “Public security is the bedrock of a safe human society and the crime situation is both the most pressing and most depressing problem facing ordinary Guyanese today,” says the grouping in its 44-page manifesto.   Continue reading

President Carter, a true Friend of Guyana, visits again – by Ralph Ramkarran

PRESIDENT CARTER, A TRUE FRIEND OF GUYANA, VISITS AGAIN.

Posted on April 18, 2015  – by

President Jimmy Carter

When the US Government under President Bush decided in 1990 that it would support free and fair elections in Guyana, it was the Carter Centre that was called upon to act as the midwife for a new era of democracy in Guyana. Even though the Hoyte government’s lifeline of international financial and diplomatic support had been partially severed, the government still resisted the reforms demanded by the then opposition. It required the renowned stature and nuanced diplomatic skills of President Carter to negotiate the necessary concessions that would guarantee free and fair elections. President Carter’s name will remain forever associated with Guyana’s democracy.

President Carter and the Carter Centre remained engaged with Guyana. It established a permanent office, mounted a second full observer mission for the 2001 elections and conducted a focused observation for the 2006 elections. On both occasions it concluded that the elections were free and fair.   Continue reading

The PPP is responsible for the militarization of large segments of society – GHK Lall

The PPP is responsible for the militarization of large segments of society

Wednesday, 22 April 2015 16:27  –  Written by  GHK Lall

Today there is loud talk of the militarization of the opposition.  It is part of the mauling of apprehensive supporters, through persistent injections of fear.  This was followed by the comment of “big trouble” brewing; and the bravado of being “battle ready.”  More and more this has progressed beyond the regular stridency of an election campaign, and clearly into the ferocity of war talk from a war party.  Today, however, the focus is on this business about “militarization.”

First, there is this pointed slur against those who have served this country loyally, including during multiple PPP administrations.  To attach sinister motives to their presence in the opposition ranks is not only disturbing, but dangerous.  The concern is self-serving, and ignores conveniently what has grown exponentially in this society under the PPP.  That is, the militarization of this society, through its own policies and actions, and its failures, too.  Continue reading
