Tens of billions invested in Guyana as a result of the work of Brassington,…

first_imgDear Editor,Winston Brassington and Dr Ashni Singh are being charged not because they did their job poorly or recklessly or without due diligence. They are being charged because they did their work brilliantly. These gentlemen are not being charged because they broke Guyana’s law; they are being charged under English common law, with an application that has never been applied in Guyana. These gentlemen are not being charged for recent transactions.The APNU/AFC politically-controlled SOCU is charging them for transactions completed almost a decade ago. And for transactions that were approved by a very experienced Privatisation Board (and then Cabinet) made up of seasoned representatives from the Private Sector, labour, and consumer bodies.Brassington and Singh are being charged for transactions going back 7-10 years and which were fully approved by the Cabinet. The purchasers have invested billions of dollars into the Guyana economy.As former President Jagdeo has said, these charges are frivolous. As former President Ramotar also said last week: <<<“The announcement in the Chronicle that Dr Ashni Singh and Mr Winston Brassington have been charged;  ‘….for alleged misconduct in public office…’ reveals the vindictiveness of this APNU+AFC regime. This is clearly an attempt to destroy the professional lives of these two gentlemen. Their only ‘crime’ being that they worked dedicatedly to promote this country and our people’s interests while the PPP/Civic was in office. As a former President who worked with these two outstanding Guyanese men, I can vouch for their uprightness, professionalism and integrity while in public office. This latest attack on Dr Singh and Mr Brassington is a continuation of the witch-hunting and the racial and political discrimination that has characterised this APNU+AFC regime since it took office in May of 2015. Not content in forcing these outstanding gentlemen to seek employment outside of Guyana, they now seem determined to destroy their professional lives. We cannot build a country with such vindictiveness and spite.”>>>Apart from the vast privatisation and public-private partnerships that these gentlemen have worked on, that have generated tens of billions in investment, saved thousands of jobs, and generated revenue and taxes for the Treasury, Brassington and Singh have transparently sold many pieces of land that were never developed or underdeveloped. These land sales created tens of billions of dollars of investment.In 2012, President Ramotar issued an 84-page report titled “Privatisation in Tables—Phase II (1993-2011).” This report was prepared by Winston Brassington. Ashni Singh was Chairman of the Privatisation Board and the NICIL Board. This 2012 report is the most comprehensive report on privatisation transactions ever issued in the history of Guyana.The charges. If we start with the 100 acres of land sold to National Hardware Limited. This land was publicly tendered in 2009, almost 10 years ago. NHL was the highest tender with a price of $516 million plus VAT. This transaction was approved by the Privatisation Board in November 2009 and the Cabinet in November 2009. Title was conveyed the following year. Prior to the sale, the land was a cow pasture. To date, NHL has spent billions of dollars to put in electricity, water, roads, bridges, drainage, and fencing. This is a gated community. Any of the purchasers of land in this gated community would have spent tens of millions of dollars to build their homes. This is major real estate development. As such, this publicly advertised deal for an empty piece of land has created billions of dollars in investment. The value of the land is determined by market bidding. Everyone could have tendered. The tendered price works out at about $5 million per acre.If we go to a piece of land in the same vicinity, west of the Convention Centre. This sale was negotiated and sold to Scady Business Corp, at a price substantially higher than the market price at the time at over G$25 million per acre. Scady is owned by the main shareholder of RUSAL. RUSAL has caused tens of billions to be invested in the Berbice bauxite industry and has saved hundreds of jobs. One may recall in 2001 when ALCOA said it would close its Berbice bauxite mine and exit Guyana. Government stepped in to keep the company open while searching for investors. RUSAL was the only investor. Today, despite very high production costs, RUSAL, with its partner Oldendorff, has invested over US$150 million (over G$30 billion) in the Berbice operations. So, such a land sale above market price, to a key shareholder of RUSAL, is not a giveaway. It is part of advancing relations and investment in Guyana. Again, this transaction was approved by the Privatisation Board and Cabinet.The third transaction again deals with an empty piece of land on the opposite side of the railway embankment road to the abovementioned land transactions. This land was previously sold by the PNC Government to Toolsie Persaud. After a long battle, the CCJ finally ruled in Government’s favour and the land was returned to Government.Government then sought to open up the land for development. The land was previously tendered, but was not sold as the Government then earmarked a portion of this land for the Specialty Hospital with funding committed by the Indian Government. Balancing the goals of getting good value for land, and promoting investment, after setting aside the land for the Specialty Hospital, 10 acres of the remaining land were sold to Multi Cinemas (Guyana) Inc, the owners of MovieTowne in Trinidad. The sale price was again a very good price, with the price per acre close to $16 million per acre. Again, this transaction was approved by the Privatisation Board and Cabinet in 2011, almost seven years ago. Since the sale, over US$30 million (over G$6 billion) has been committed to this project.Even before the above transactions, Giftland leased from the PPP Government, a large piece of land at Liliendaal to build its mall and cinemas. This land was not tendered. Giftland has an option to buy its land, at US$12 million per acre a price that is lower than the sale prices to Scady and Multi-Cinemas. After much delay, Giftland developed its land with substantial investments into the property. This was one of the first projects declared open by the APNU Government.Under the PPP, the economy has seen its longest period of economic growth in the history of the country. This is no accident. Singh’s and Brassington’s contributions have been significant, under the leadership of Jagdeo and Ramotar.Sincerely,Concerned citizenlast_img read more

Given a fair chance at opening, I will back my ability – Johnson

first_imgBy Akeem GreeneGuyana’s son of the soil and West Indies Test cricketer Leon Johnson, who has adopted the role as opening batsman in the game’s longest format, says that once he has given a fair chance in playing in the position, he firmly believes he will gradually improve.In an exclusive interview with Guyana Times Sport on Wednesday at the player’s restaurant “Sticky Wicket” on Carmichael Street, the batman said “ Being asked to open the batting is not someLeon Johnsonthing I’m accustom to, when I say fair chance I mean a good run, a number of consecutive matches and I will back my ability to opening batting.”He further stated, “Those persons who would be opening the batting in international cricket would not just have started doing it, they probably would have been doing it for some time now, it’s a specialist position; so once I’m a given a fair opportunity I think I can adapt to it.”However, throughout his career, the stylish left-handed batsman has plied his trade in the middle-order position, a position in which he has been extremely successful. During the 2015/2016 West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Professional Cricket League (PCL) 4-day competition, the Guyana Jaguars captain rocketed to the top of the charts with an impressive 807 runs from ten matches at an average of 57.64, scoring two centuries and five half-centuries, batting a number four.Quizzed more on his new role in the regional side he explained, “Ideally if you going to open the batting in Test cricket, you will probably want to open the batting in four-day cricket but the way Guyana cricket is structured, we usually have seasoned openers, so probably asking these Guys who open the batting to drop in the order might be a bit difficult.”He added, “I was leading run scorer in the regional tournament batting at four, so I don’t see a reason why I should play First-class cricket opening the batting and I have been successful at number four.”On Test debut against Bangladesh in 2014, the batsmen stroked an eye-catching 66 after which he went on to make another half-century batting at number three however, in the recent series against India, he had to revert to the opening role, where he produced scores of 23,0 and nine.Though the Test squad for the three Test matches against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from October 13 to November 3 has not been named, it would to be a total surprise to see a batsman who played six Test matches, averaging 30.70 not be included. The possibility lies that once selected for the tour, Johnson will return to the opening slot, against the current number one ranked Test team.“Looking at Pakistan playing against England, they have a really good attack so the initial thinking will be to be to assess the conditions and you won’t be able to tell until you reach there and knowing the opposition, it all comes down to planning,” the 29 year-old revealed. With a lean outing in his last three Test innings, Johnson is cognisant of the technical areas he needs to address if he is to have a lengthy and successful career in the oldest format of the game. He stated, “After my dismissals in the two Test matches against India, I have gone and look at the tapes and I have seen a couple things I need to improve.”This weekend, Johnson along with 10 other Guyanese players and several other regional players will engage in preparatory camp in Barbados ahead of their trip to the U.A.E and the A-team tour to Sri Lanka.

first_imgA duo from the Islamic Republic of Mauritania, a West African country, found themselves before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on Friday and were remanded to prison for illegally entering Guyana.The men – Ifra Diallo, 25; and Moussa N’Digue, 29, denied the allegation put to them by the Magistrate when they appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.The charge against the French speaking men alleged that on May 21, 2018, at Springlands, Berbice, they entered Guyana by sea and failed to present themselves to an immigration officer.Ifra Diallo and Moussa N’Digue at the Georgetown Magistrates’ CourtsAccording to the prosecution’s case, the two arrived by sea from Suriname.

EPA to have offices in every region by end of 2020

first_imgThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will soon have offices countrywide. This was disclosed by its Executive Director, Dr Vincent Adams. He made the announcement at the close of the EPA workshops that targeted Community Forest Operators (CFOs).Executive Director of EPA, Dr Vincent Adams and Minister of State, Dawn Hastings-Williams surrounded by senior officers of the EPA, EU, GFC and the FAOAccording to the Department of Public Information, the workshops were aimed at enlightening CFOs on the need to have an Environmental Authorisation before any forest activity. This was done in collaboration with the European Union/ Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (EU/FLEGT) and Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).During the exercise, 12 workshops were held in eight regions, except Regions 5 and 8, as these do not have any registered CFOs. 319 participants represented 48 of 69 registered CFOs.While the workshops were deemed a success, Dr Adams said that many persons are limited from applying for an Environmental Authorisation owing to Guyana’s geographic set-up. To address the issue, he said that the EPA is taking a two-pronged approach to access to the EPA.“The Agency will approach EU and the FAO for the second phase of this project to allow the Agency to meet operators and provide similar services offered at the central office in Georgetown for them to become authorised. So, instead of operators coming to the Agency, the Agency will go to them… For the longer and sustainable term, the Agency will continue to aggressively pursue its goal of establishing an office presence in every region of the country by the end of 2020,” he is quoted by DPI as saying.Dr Adams added that as a result of the workshops, “the Agency received applications for an environmental permit from five CFOs. A clear indication that this project has resulted in CFOs now willing to apply for Environmental Authorisation after their capacities were built through this training”.Minister of State, Dawn Hastings-Williams said that Guyana has recognised that its forests must be protected and effectively managed. This, she noted, can only be achieved if everyone is in compliance with the Environment Authorisation.According to the Minister, economic diversification is critical. She challenged the forest operators to be innovative and creative.last_img read more

Rashford pays tribute to Manchester bombing victims

first_img0Shares0000Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing © AFP/File / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, May 22 – Marcus Rashford has paid tribute to his home city on the first anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing, which killed 22 people.On May 22, 2017 Salman Abedi, a British man of Libyan heritage, blew himself up outside the venue, which had been hosting a concert by teen pop idol Ariana Grande. Manchester United and Manchester City adopted the tagline of “a city united” following the atrocity and Rashford has spoken of the devastating impact of the attack.The United and England striker wrote on his club’s website of his memories of growing up in Manchester and what the city means to him, recalling his own memories of attending events.“What happened in Manchester on 22 May, 2017 was unimaginable,” he said.“I won’t forget the moment I found out about the bombing at the Arena. In that moment, I won’t lie, it’s so tough to process. The likelihood of you knowing someone who was directly involved in it is quite high, so it’s a difficult moment.”United went on to win the Europa League final against Ajax on May 24, dedicating the victory to the victims of the bombing.“We all spoke about it beforehand in the dressing room before we went out for the final and when the game had finished and we’d won, the first thing we did was make sure we showed our respects for what had happened back home,” Rashford said.Rashford and team-mate Jesse Lingard visited survivors of the attack shortly afterwards.“We went to put smiles on faces where we could but they ended up helping us and making us smile,” he added. “I really can’t put into words how brave those incredible kids are, how brave all the victims are. I can’t find the words to do them justice.”The Arena has since reopened and Rashford said his thoughts would always remain with those affected.“My support still goes out to the victims and their families,” he said. Nobody will ever forget what happened but the way Manchester pulled together shows you everything you need to know about the people here. Seeing how everyone reacted made me so proud to be a Mancunian.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

From Russia to Leicester and back for record-breaking Musa

first_imgThey would guarantee progress with victory against Argentina in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday and even a draw could take them through if other results go their way.Musa became, in the process, Nigeria’s all-time highest scorer at World Cup finals with four goals and he the only man from his country to score in two different World Cups.He is also just the second African player to register two goals in two World Cup matches since Cameroon’s Roger Milla in 1990.But it has not been an easy journey for the livewire forward, who first caught the eye when, as a 21-year-old, he scored twice against Lionel Messi’s Argentina in a 3-2 group stage defeat in Brazil four years ago.Signed by the then English Premier League champions Leicester City from CSKA Moscow in 2016 for a club record £16.6 million ($22 million), he scored his first two goals in a 4-2 friendly defeat against a Barcelona side led by Messi.But it took him until October that year to open his Premier League account with a goal in a 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.He soon fell out of favour at the King Power Stadium, languishing behind England’s Jamie Vardy, Shinji Okazaki and Leonardo Ulloa in the pecking order.He was encouraged by Nigeria’s German coach Gernot Rohr to return to his old club in Russia on loan in January to get more game time ahead of the World Cup, a move Musa acknowledges has been vital.“They helped me get back to the style of play I had today. Were it not for CSKA, I would not have been in the World Cup.”His first goal against Iceland earned comparisons with Dennis Bergkamp’s injury-time wonder goal for the Netherlands that knocked Argentina out of the 1998 World Cup quarter-finals.Twenty years later Musa has the chance to eliminate Messi’s Argentina, and the pocket rocket who stands just 1.70 metres (five feet seven inches) tall is ready for the challenge.“I think scoring against Argentina isn’t that difficult for me,” he smiled after his man-of-the-match performance in Volgograd on Friday.“I can remember four years ago when Messi played in Brazil I scored two goals,” he said.“And when I transferred to Leicester I played against Barcelona and he’s on the pitch and I scored another two goals.”Musa said he would like to return to CSKA permanently, but another stunning performance could see Europe’s top clubs queueing up for his signature.“I have go back to Leicester,” he confirmed, but said he would only think about his future once Nigeria were eliminated, which he hopes will be at least another two weeks away.“Coming back to CSKA, if it’s possible, I would love to. It’s my die-hard club.“There is nothing I can pay them for the past seasons I’ve been with them other than to say: ‘Thank you very much’.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa celebrates after scoring against Iceland in Volgograd © AFP / Mark RALSTONVOLGOGRAD, Russian Federation, Jun 23 – Leicester City’s out-of-favour striker Ahmed Musa wrote himself into the World Cup record books by scoring twice to fire Nigeria to their first win in Russia against Iceland.The 25-year-old produced two virtuoso second-half finishes to keep the Super Eagles in the hunt for a place in the last 16 on Friday.last_img read more

De Gea backs former Man United teammate Hernandez to shine at Real Madrid

first_img1 David De Gea and Javier Hernandez during their time together at Manchester United David De Gea has backed his Manchester United team-mate Javier Hernandez to thrive at Real Madrid.Hernandez joined Real Madrid during the summer transfer window, arriving at the Champions League holders on loan for the season.The Mexico international will be hoping that the move can reignite his goal-scoring form after only finding the net nine times in 35 appearances last season.De Gea does not see that as a concern though and has backed Hernandez to succeed during his time in the Spanish capital.“I think he is a great signing for Real Madrid, he plays a little but he scores a lot,” De Gea told Spanish radio station COPE.“Chicharito is a great person, one of the nicest I have met in the footballing world. He will do really well at Real Madrid.”last_img read more

BREAKING NEWS: DEVINE LEAVES DERRY CITY BY MUTUAL CONSENT

first_imgDerry City and Declan Devine parted ways this evening by mutual consent.Declan Devine celebrates winning the FAI Cup with Derry last year.In a statement on the club’s official website, chairman Philip O’Doherty thanked the former City player for his contribution to the club.The statement reads: “Derry City FC Board of Directors wish to announce that Declan Devine has parted company with the club by mutual consent. “The club wish Declan well for the future and thank him for his contribution over the years.Devine (40) was appointed manager of Derry City on 6 January 2012, beating off Willie McStay to land the post left vacant by Stephen Kenny.He agreed a two-year deal along with Paul Hegarty who was appointed as his assistant manager.In his first season in charge, the club finished fifth in the league, won the FAI Cup, and were runners-up in the Setanta Sports Cup. In the wake of this success, Devine signed a one-year contract extension to keep him at the club until the end of the 2014 season.At the beginning of his second season in charge, after an opening day defeat to Sligo Rovers, Devine guided his team to a 10-match unbeaten run and top of the table until they were defeated again by Sligo in the second series of fixtures.However, results took a downward spiral, especially at home, where attendances also dropped.Derry finishing fourth in the league –  which could still see City play in next season’s Europa League if Sligo win the FAI Cup on Sunday next – was not enough to save his job.A goalkeeper, Devine began his career with Ipswich Town but was unable to make the breakthrough at Portman Road and returned home to ply his trade with a number of Irish League clubs as well as Derry City and won the Ulster Young Footballer of the Year Award in 1994 when playing for Roy McCreadie’s Omagh Town. He was capped right up to under-21 level with Northern Ireland, winning an under-21 cap in a 0–0 draw against Romania in 1994.He tasted success with Glentoran, helping them to defeat Glenavon in the Irish Cup final in the 1995–96 season.However, at the end of that season he moved to the Brandywell for a combined fee of £42,000 which included Liam Coyle, where he provided backup to Tony O’Dowd as Derry City went on to win the title under Felix Healy.Devine was restricted to a limited number of appearances and his highest profile appearance was that in the 1997 FAI Cup final. Derry City, aiming for the double, were rocked with the news of the sudden death of the younger brother of Tony O’Dowd just days before the final and Devine stepped up to take his place between the sticks. They were defeated 2–0 by Shelbourne in Dalymount Park on a weekend where football very much took a back seat. Devine remained at the Brandywell for the start of the 1997–98 season but again found his opportunities limited and returned to Omagh Town.He moved following season and ended up with Institute, becoming one of the many players who have played for the two clubs in the Derry.Having stopped playing at the end of the 2001–02 season, Devine became involved in coaching at an underage level. He returned to Derry City as the Youth Development officer in 2003 and was initially involved in the delivery of the community coaching and Football in the Community programmes which were run by the club at that time.The installation of former teammate, Gavin Dykes, as manager in 2003 meant a promotion for Devine and he took on the role of first team coach.Stephen Kenny opted to retain Devine as first team coach when he arrived at the club the following season, and the back room setup, including Paul Hegarty, guided Derry City to successive second place finishes as well as success in the FAI Cup, League Cup and memorable European runs.Following this success, Kenny lured Devine to join him at Dunfermline Athletic when he left for Fir Park and he was appointed first team coach there on 5 December 2006.Devine described the move as a “massive wrench” but felt for personal reasons that he needed to move on. However, after Stephen Kenny’s return to Derry City in late 2007, Devine, too followed him back to the club and was instrumental in guiding the team to the First Division title and a third place finish in the 2011 season.Following the departure of Stephen Kenny to Shamrock Rovers in December 2011, Devine was appointed manager of Derry City in January 2012.BREAKING NEWS: DEVINE LEAVES DERRY CITY BY MUTUAL CONSENT was last modified: October 27th, 2013 by johngerardShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:consentdevinemutuallast_img read more
