No confidence in Khemraj Ramjattan

first_imgDear Editor,The current crisis in the country’s security sector has gripped the nation in a frenzy of fear – not irrational but justifiable fear because from corner to corner of Guyana, practically on a daily basis, there are stories emanating of violent crimes, especially armed robberies and murder in the act of the commission of such crimes. These criminals have to live. They have bodily needs that they have to fulfil, and they have a history of wresting the wherewithal of those needs by any means possible; so the average Guyanese – even the poorest of the poor; ie, the elderly pensioners and single-parent households, have been targeted to provide for those needs. Recently, there has been a proliferation of videos showing robbers – armed with knives and guns, robbing people, schoolchildren not exempted, on a daily basis. Passengers are robbed in buses and even taxis.The tears of the nation are flowing to rival the floods decimating nations worldwide but these are rivers of blood flowing from eyes that are drenched with the pain from hearts wounded to unbearable proportions by the loss of loved ones, most often in the prime of their lives, brutally taken by the beasts in human form who, while robbing persons of their property, cash and other resources, have no qualms of robbing them of their lives also.And in equal measure, the curses of the nation against Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan are escalating along with strident calls for his removal as head of the nation’s security services but he stands resolute, arrogant and inflexible in the flotsam of his abundant failures, unmoved by the agony of the victims and their bereft dependents.A country’s security sector bears the most responsibility for the protection of citizens from criminal elements, thus anyone tasked with the mandate of managing this vital sector should prove, over time, meritorious in the functionality and efficiency of the various arms of Government comprising his portfolio. However, from the inception of the appointment of Khemraj Ramjattan as Security Minister, there has been one critical incident that compromised the nation’s safety after another.The calls are escalating, even from his own party’s supporters, that he should resign or be re-assigned because he has clearly failed to deliver on his primary mandate – to protect the nation and formulate policies that would strengthen the various arms under his watch.He defends the indefensible and excuses himself with one ridiculous postulation after another when the fact is that he is unable to perform to expectations. There may be many flaws in the system but the fact of the matter is that the buck stops at Ramjattan. His utterings, while acknowledging the facts, disclaims blame on his performance and ascribes same to departmental heads, while not naming names.Heads should roll after all the ludicrous fiascos and the permeating fear infusing the entire nation because no one is safe from the murderous criminals who are acting with greater impunity as a result of the gross deficiencies of Guyana’s security forces under Ramjattan’s watch. Nowhere is safe anymore, not even in the sanctity of one’s own home. Without a doubt, he should be the first to go, according to popular opinion. There is absolutely no confidence in him by the public as the head of the security services.Regards,Alister CharlieMember ofParliamentlast_img read more

PNC withheld confirmation of CJ, Chancellor – former AG

first_imgActing appointments…Jagdeo, Ramotar were willing to confirm incumbentsThe debate continues surrounding office holders of top judicial posts being forced to remain in an acting role throughout their tenure. Lending his voice to the debate, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall claimed that it was then Opposition Leaders Robert Corbin and David Granger who withheld confirmation.Flashback: President David Granger takes a photo with Chief Justice (ag) Roxane George and Chancellor (ag) Yonette Cummings-EdwardsAccording to Nandlall, in a missive he penned on the issue, there were several meetings with then President Bharrat Jagdeo and then Opposition Leader Robert Corbin to seek an agreement on the appointments of the Chancellor of the Judiciary and the Chief Justice. At the time, Justice Carl Singh and Justice Ian Chang acted in these positions.“I recall that for a greater part of those engagements, President Jagdeo’s position was a preparedness to confirm the incumbents in office. These propositions failed to meet with the agreement of the then Leader of the Opposition.”“As far as I am aware, during that period and indeed until they both departed the Bench, neither their competence nor suitability to hold those offices were ever publicly questioned. Yet, an agreement to appoint them, substantively, proved elusive.”Former Attorney General Anil NandlallHe said that when Donald Ramotar and David Granger assumed office as President and Opposition Leader, respectively, the engagements continued; with Ramotar continuing to adopt the position of his predecessor to confirm the incumbents.“Like his predecessor, Mr Granger withheld his agreement. As Attorney General, I had the privilege of being present at most of those engagements. I recall, through the President, requesting of the then Leader of the Opposition, to assemble in writing, the reasons for his objections to the President’s position, since it was agreed by both sides that the incumbents, at that time, had both demonstrated their competence and, indeed, had accumulated a track record of success, as actors in those positions.”Nandlall noted that unfortunately, no such reasons were ever presented by Granger. He further noted that when they were replaced, now President David Granger did not attempt to secure the agreement of the Leader of the Opposition before making those two appointments.“Rather, he chose to invoke Article 127 (2) of the Constitution as a first option, thereby ignoring Article 127 (1). Why the President would not want to seek agreement to confirm the current holders in office, I would leave open to your own inferences. To date, no such attempt has been made,” Nandlall revealed.Just recently, Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) President, Sir Dennis Byron zeroed in on the trend of persons being appointed to top positions in Guyana’s judiciary, but being forced to act for years while their confirmation remains in limbo.In a recent address to the Guyana Bar Association, he condemned the fact that since former Chancellor Desiree Bernard demitted office, an agreement has not been reached for the substantive appointment of a Chancellor.“This has brought us to the situation today where the number one and number two officials of the Guyana judiciary have not been substantively appointed. This is a most unfortunate state of affairs,” the legal luminary stated.“This situation has moved well beyond what ought to be acceptable in a modern democracy where respect for the rule of law is maintained. The Constitution envisages the judiciary of Guyana to be headed by officials who are substantively appointed and enjoy all the legal and institutional mechanisms to secure their tenure,” he continued.Referring to Article 122 A (1); which states that “all courts and all persons presiding over the courts shall exercise their functions independently of the control and direction of any person or authority; and shall be free and independent from political, executive and other form of discretion and control”, Byron bluntly stated that the delay was a breach of the spirit and intent of the Constitution.Article 127 (2) of the Constitution states, “If the office of Chancellor is vacant … then until a person has been appointed to and has assumed the functions of such office…the functions shall be performed by such other of the judges as shall be appointed by the President after meaningful consultation with the leader of the opposition.”Commenting on this, Byron noted that the language of the Act suggests that the appointment was to be a short-term one, before a substantive appointment. He noted that even from a subjective analysis, the Constitution never intended for the years it has taken to fill the substantive positions to pass.Byron noted that the delay in complying with Section 127(1) of the Constitution has long breached a level of justifiability and the most appropriate authority for resolving this situation is the court system.“Section 127 (1) ascribes an obligation to the President and the Leader of the Opposition that is mandatory in nature and not discretionary (to appoint Chancellor and Chief Justice). Any failure in fulfilling this obligation must, therefore, be regarded as a breach of the Constitution,” Byron also said.Acting Chancellor of the Judiciary, Yonette Cummings-Edwards was appointed by President Granger in May of this year. Prior to that, she acted as the Chief Justice from December 2015. She was never confirmed to the substantive position.Edwards replaced Justice Carl Singh, who retired after acting as Chancellor since 2005. The current Acting Chief Justice, Justice Roxane George was also appointed to her position on the same day as Edwards.last_img read more

Elderly man crushed to death in EBE accident

first_imgA pedal cyclist was crushed to death by a truck after he was hit off his bicycle on the Parika Access Road, East Bank Essequibo (EBE) on Thursday morning.The truck, BWW 4008, that crushed the pedal cyclist to death on Thursday morning along the Parika, East Bank Essequibo roadwayDead is 65-year-old Christian Bowlin of Parika Backdam, EBE. Reports are at about 09:15h on Thursday, the pedal cyclist and the lorry truck driver were on the same lane along the main public road heading in the northern direction when the accident took place.This newspaper was told that the driver of the truck, GWW 4008, attempted to overtake Bowlin on the roadway but during this process, he hit the right handle of the bicycle. As a result of the impact, Bowlin fell off the bicycle and landed between the front and back wheels on the left side of the moving truck.Seconds later, the back wheel of the truck ran over Bowlin’s head and instantly crushed the pedal cyclist to death.Commander of D Division (West Bank Demerara-East Bank Essequibo), Senior Superintendent Linden Lord when contacted told <<>> that ranks in the Division conducted a breathalyser test on the driver but there was no trace of alcohol in his system.He stated that the truck driver is presently in police custody assisting with investigations.In May month, a 57-year-old pedal cyclist named Ramlackhan (only name given) was struck down by an intoxicated corporal attached to the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) on the East Coast of Demerara, and almost one month later succumbed to his injuries at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).His death occurred less than two weeks after he underwent emergency surgery while in an unconscious state at that hospital.In March, a hit-and-run accident along the Timehri Public Road, East Bank Demerara (EBD), claimed the life of 50-year-old pedal cyclist Peter Billison of Lot 17 Soesdyke, EBD.Also in March, Rupununi resident Jennifer Williams, a 40-year-old pedal cyclist, died after she was allegedly struck down by a motor pick-up on the Wowetta Main Road in North Rupununi, Region Nine.In February, a 41-year-old pedal cyclist, Joel Jacobs, of Number 28 Village, West Coast Berbice, was killed after he reportedly collided with hire car HC 8140 on the Onverwagt Public Road, West Coast Berbice (WCB).last_img read more

Sh13b too cheap, but hard to keep hold of Hazard, admits Sarri

first_imgHe admitted his first goal was “something special” as after collecting the ball just inside the West Ham half, Hazard jinked past three defenders before coolly slotting home.However, Chelsea may be forced to cash in on their prized asset as their number 10 has just over one year left on his contract and has so far refused to extend his deal.Should they refuse to sell this summer, Chelsea run the risk of losing their top scorer on a free transfer in 2020.“It (£100m) is too cheap in this market! We have seen in the last few windows every price I think,” Sarri said.“I’m sure the club doesn’t want to sell him, but of course we all have to respect his decision, I think.“He is in the last season of contract, if he wants to have another experience we have to respect it. We will try in any way to convince him, but it is not easy.”The prospect of losing Hazard is even more daunting for Chelsea as they are currently banned from signing any new players due to a one-year transfer ban imposed by FIFA.“From the technical point of view no, not at the moment,” added Sarri when asked if Chelsea can cope without Hazard.“Also because it is impossible to find another Hazard. At the moment there is not another Hazard, because the level is too high.”– Hazard focused on top four –Victory ensured Chelsea moved into third in the Premier League, two points clear of Tottenham and three ahead of fifth-placed Arsenal in the race for a top-four finish.Both their London rivals and Manchester United — five points back in sixth — now have a game in hand on Sarri’s men.But Hazard insisted he is focused solely on delivering Champions League football for Chelsea next season either via a top-four finish or winning the Europa League.“For now I am just focusing on Chelsea until the end of the season,” he said.“I want to finish in the top four and do well in the Europa League. We still have a lot to do and then we will see.”With trips to Liverpool and Manchester United to come in Chelsea’s last five league games, much will depend on Hazard with Gonzalo Higuain showing little sign of hitting form.The Argentine striker stated his desire before kick-off to make his move permanent should Chelsea successfully appeal their transfer ban, but he had another night to forget in front of goal.“When Hazard is able to play like in the last two matches of course for the team it is easier,” Sarri said. “We can win against every team.”Having failed to muster a single attack of note before the break, West Ham sparked into life in the second half and could have made Chelsea pay for their failure to kill the game off.Marko Arnautovic’s clever cut-back picked out the unmarked Manuel Lanzini at the edge of the box, but his shot was too close to Kepa Arrizabalaga before Aaron Cresswell then arrowed a shot inches wide of the far post.Sarri was growing increasingly frustrated on the sidelines as Chelsea continued to miss chances to make the game safe.But the Italian was finally able to relax in stoppage time when Hazard was given acres of space to control Ross Barkley’s pass and produced the finish to match his performance.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eden Hazard’s wonder goal helped Chelsea beat West Ham on Monday © AFP / OLLY GREENWOODLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 9 – Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri admitted it will be hard to deny Eden Hazard a move to Real Madrid this summer, even if a reported Sh13 billion move is “too cheap” for the Belgian captain.Hazard was in stunning form as the Blues moved up to third in the Premier League, scoring both goals in a 2-0 win over West Ham on Monday.last_img read more

Microsoft medical site holds concerns

first_imgInsurance providers and private companies market their own flavors of patient-controlled storehouses of records, and employers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc. offer such tools to workers. Steve Case, co-founder of AOL, has launched Revolution Health, an information Web site that offers a records management tool for paying members, and Google Inc. has indicated it will launch its own service. Microsoft’s Windows operating system runs more than 90 percent of the world’s desktop computers, including those in hospitals and doctor’s offices. The HealthVault site works with different operating systems and browsers, but Microsoft may have an edge with Windows desktop applications. The company launched one such program Thursday that helps upload data from devices like heart rate monitors. The HealthVault site itself doesn’t do much more than provide a window into stored information and a mechanism for sharing it. Microsoft hopes hospitals, doctors’ offices, advocacy groups and insurance companies will build Web applications that patients will want to use. The American Heart Association, American Lung Association and other organizations already have applications in the works, Microsoft said. And devices including blood glucose monitoring systems made by Johnson & Johnson will be able to upload data into the system. Microsoft said CapMed, which already markets personal health record tools, also plans to create an application for HealthVault, as does Kryptiq Corp., whose program will help doctors send and receive information from HealthVault with technology they already use. Microsoft said it plans to support HealthVault with advertising revenue from the search portion of the site. In an interview, Sean Nolan, chief architect of the company’s 2-year-old Health Solutions group, characterized this “beta” launch of HealthVault as an early step into a difficult industry. For one thing, there’s no guarantee any two providers will call the same treatment or lab work by the same name. Then, many health records are not yet ready to be handled this way. Between 80 percent and 85 percent of doctors in private practice don’t keep electronic records, and hospitals aren’t much better, according to Lynne Dunbrack, program director of market research group Health Industry Insights. Paper records can be scanned or faxed to create an electronic version. When it comes to technology, health care is “where other industries were in the 1980s,” Dunbrack said. As the industry increases its use of data sharing, opportunities for privacy violations will multiply, said Sue Blevins, president of the D.C.-based think tank Institute for Health Freedom. The 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, gives hospitals, doctors, insurance companies and other related entities access to patients’ records without consent for various purposes. This alone troubles Blevins, but “adding electronic ease just magnifies the problem,” she said. Patients need to be able to control their own data, she said. With HealthVault, Microsoft tried to build in protections from the start, spelling out exactly what data is shared each time the user connects to a new application or gives someone new permission to see a record. What Microsoft is doing “is very, very good,” Blevins said, but she added that she still has concerns about who really owns data that live on Microsoft servers, or what happens to records when someone dies. While consumers have been willing to send financial details over the Web in spite of identity-theft horror stories, many still consider private medical information too sensitive to put online. “Financial information is certainly sensitive, but medical information adds another whole degree of concern, when it’s HIV test results or information regarding mental health treatment,” said Reece Hirsch, a partner at the law firm Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal in San Francisco. “There’s a lot of emotional distress associated with inappropriate disclosure of that information.” Microsoft’s HealthVault isn’t subject to many of HIPAA’s rules or state medical privacy laws, because it’s seen as the digital equivalent of patients asking doctors to fax them a copy of their records. But the software maker must still grapple with whether sharing data exposes it to greater financial risk in the event that hackers get their hands on confidential medical data. Many state-level security breach notification laws have been passed in the last couple of years, giving identity-theft victims the ability to sue companies whose systems are hacked or whose computers are stolen, Hirsch said. The health-care industry is just one U.S. sector that’s treading lightly as a result. Some of the best sources of comprehensive health records data, major insurance companies, haven’t agreed to build applications that work with HealthVault. But even if Microsoft were able to get providers and insurance companies to feed data into HealthVault, it’s not clear consumers will use it. Dunbrack, of Health Industry Insights, said most people who have access to a way of managing their medical records online don’t even know it exists. “Historically, personal health records have had really pretty abysmal track records,” she said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Jessica Mintz THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEATTLE – Microsoft Corp. launched a Web site Thursday for managing personal health and medical information, but privacy advocates worry that neither the technology nor U.S. law will protect patients’ most confidential details. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityFrom the consumer’s point of view, Microsoft’s HealthVault site is part filing cabinet, part library and part fax machine for an individual’s or a family’s medical records and notes. The free site can store medical histories, immunization and other records from doctors’ offices and hospital visits, including data from devices like heart monitors. It is also tied to a health information search engine the software maker launched last month. Users can dole out access to different slices of their health data via e-mailed invitations to doctors, family members and other people as the need arises. Microsoft has been kicking around the idea of a health site since at least 2000, when Chief Executive Steve Ballmer described a “health vault” in a speech to financial professionals in New York. The software maker isn’t the first to jump into the ring. Across the country, groups of providers are starting “regional health information organizations” to share data electronically. last_img read more

L.A. officials call for expanding preschool, health programs

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week First 5 LA approved the program in August 2002 in response to research showing that a child’s experiences during the first five years of life influence future learning capabilities. Financed through Proposition 10, the voter-approved tax on tobacco products, First 5 LA last year received about $134 million, which it spent in three major areas – preschool, health care and partnerships. In Thursday’s half-day conference at the Sheraton Los Angeles, officials tackled developing and funding additional programs through First 5. “We have been able to do a lot, but there is so much more that is needed,” Supervisor Gloria Molina said. “What we have to do is make sure that people have the information to know what we are doing and what is available to them.” Los Angeles Councilwoman Wendy Greuel said the program is important for its immediate impact, as well as the region’s future. Los Angeles County elected officials on Thursday debated ways to broaden the influence and programs of First 5 LA to boost the number of children involved in preschool and health programs. “This is a safety net that is so important when we are living in a city where half our kids are dropping out, where we have more uninsured children than anywhere in the nation, where we are the poverty capital of America and children are the biggest victims,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said. “This is why we have to engage the school district to make sure our kids are learning and getting the health care they need.” The First 5 program is part of an effort to improve the state’s education system and economy by eventually offering preschool to every 4-year-old in California. “We will not be able to compete with the world, or even Silicon Valley, without a well-trained work force,” Greuel said. “If you just want to look at this in terms of economics, it’s a good investment.” San Fernando Mayor Julie Ruelas said her city has committed to setting aside land for preschools and establishing a family museum. “We already are seeing benefits, with fewer dropouts and improved grades,” Ruelas said. “This is a program we all have to support and get involved in.” Greuel recalled how the Los Angeles Unified School District questioned why the city would get involved when former Mayor Tom Bradley began L.A.’s Better Educated Students for Tomorrow after-school program. “They asked us, ‘Why are you doing this? It isn’t your responsibility,”‘ recalled Greuel, who worked for Bradley at the time. “What we told them is that when the kids got out of school and were running around on the streets, it was our responsibility. We all have a stake in making sure our kids do well.” Rick Orlov, (213) 978-0390 rick.orlov@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
