first_imgTwo Commissioners of the Land Commission have told local leaders not to be frightened to bring forth their tribal certificates to the Land Commission for recording as the tribal certificates are legal documents as compared to any other land documents.Commissioners Estelle Kuyon Liberty, who has oversight responsibility on land policy and programs for Grand Bassa and Bong Counties, and Suzanna G. Vaye with oversight duty of outreach and education, made the assertion in Gbarnga over the weekend when the Land Commission (LC) launched its Tribal Certificates Inventory Project. It is an exercise that will record, scan and validate all tribal certificates.The first phase of the Tribal Certificates Inventory Project will benefit four counties,  Bong, Bomi, Grand Cape Mount and Monsterrado.The two Commissioners informed the audience that tribal certificates are legal, on grounds  that they are signed by tribal authorities and issued by the County Land Commissioner under the 1956 and 1973 Public Land Sale Laws, certifying the accord of the community to the sale or transfer of land in customary societies.They explained to the that gathering the objectives of the exercise are to gather information on the total number of tribal certificates distributed over the years that will assist the Commission to establish a database on existing tribal certificates in the four counties; to analyze information generated that will enhance the Commission’s land administration policy and law formulation process; and to strengthen national land rights records management and registration systems in rural areas through the inventory of all lands under tribal certificates.Commissioners Liberty and Vaye narrated that during the inventory exercise, which will take place in the four counties; tribal certificate owners will display their certificates to an inventory team for recording and scanning before being stamped with a number.They explained that the Tribal Certificate Inventory Project is the first step in a process and is intended to afford Liberians,  particularly the tribal people, the opportunity to finally secure title to land that they have laid claim to over the years by translating their tribal certificates into deeds.They indicated that all relevant documents will be returned to the appropriate owners after all vital information is  obtained and recorded by the LC. Speaking earlier at the launch of the Land Commission’s Tribal Certificates Inventory Project, Bong County Superintendent Selena Polson Mappy lauded the LC and its partners for the exercise and said the program will help to minimize and manage land conflict in the various communities.Superintendent Mappy told the LC authorities that the exercise will also assist government to establish appropriate land ownership programs in the country.  She  pledged her county’s  unflinching support to the project.She encouraged the tribal people to bring forward their tribal certificates during the days of the inventory process so that their tribal certificates may  be recorded and deeded in subsequent  times.The Land Commission was established in 2009 by the Government of Liberia and charged with the responsibility to formulate land policy and land law reform in the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgAnother startling disclosure on children in Guyana was made this week when it was revealed that in a mere two months into 2019, over 400 reports of child abuse cases have been recorded.This was revealed by Country Representative of the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) Guyana, Sylvie Fouet, who said the statistics are alarming. According to the UNICEF rep, who was speaking at the launching of the Forensic Psychology and Sexual Offences Special Training Series, last year a total of 1000 cases were reported. The link between law and science, she told the gathering, will go a long way in changing the way Guyana responds to and documents child abuse cases as well as sexual violence in general.A number of cases involving children being sexually assaulted engaged the attention of the courts locally and more were reported after the Sexual Offences Court was established and begun dealing with these cases. During some of the trials, the nation was shocked to learn of the details which emerged of how the victims were sexually and physically abused. In one of the cases, a logger was found guilty on two counts of sexual activity with a child family member by the jury at the High Court. A relative of the victim read out the girl’s statement in court where the child outlined that she lives in discomfort and harbours difficulty relating to males. According to the victim, since the sexual abuse, she often has nightmares and bad dreams with constant flashbacks of the harrowing attacks inflicted upon her. She related that she does not play with friends and spends much time self-harming. She was quoted in the media saying: “I feel messed up about what happened to me”.Then there was another case in which a man appeared in court for a similar matter. He is currently serving a life sentence after being found guilty last year of raping a male family member, who was seven and eight when he was violated. These are just two of a long list of cases of our children being sexually violated. While life would never be the same again for the victims involved, it is good to see that the perpetrators are facing justice for these despicable and cruel acts. However, this might just be a tip of the iceberg as it is highly believed that many child sexual abuse cases are deliberately hidden and go unreported due to varying reasons.To reiterate a point that was previously made by this newspaper is the fact that sexual violence against children is considered to be a gross violation of children’s rights. According to UNICEF, sexual violence can take the form of sexual abuse, harassment, rape or sexual exploitation in prostitution or pornography. It can happen in homes, institutions, schools, workplaces, in travel and tourism facilities, within communities. Increasingly, the Internet and mobile phones also put children at risk of sexual violence as some adults look to the Internet to pursue sexual relationships with children. There is also an increase in the number and circulation of images of child abuse.The United Nations Development Programme had reported that Latin America and the Caribbean is the most violent region in the world for women. In fact, Guyana was named second in top three of 10 countries in the world with the highest rate of rape against women and girls in the English-speaking Caribbean.Locally, the Childcare and Protection Agency (CCPA) has been on the frontline in bringing some of these cases to light.The Guyana Police Force is also a key partner in the fight against child sexual violence. The Force must continue to provide the necessary training to its officers to properly investigate sexual crimes against children. Our children need to be assured that when violence against them is reported, the law will act quickly to persecute the perpetrators and that our judicial system will function efficiently and equitably to bring such criminals to justice.Importantly too is that all the necessary support systems must be put in place to ensure victims and their families are provided with the counselling, etc, to overcome the trauma of sexual violence.As was stated before that children, irrespective of their ethnic, religious, cultural or social backgrounds, deserve to grow up in an environment where they feel safe.last_img read more

first_imgEarlier this year, Deputy Police Commissioner Paul Williams, responsible for the Force’s administration, which encompasses recruitment, revealed that the GPF was actively working with Toshaos from various hinterland communities to help identify appropriate indigenous persons to join the GPF. This is very commendable, since, as DCP Williams said, this will add to the diversity of the Force.While statistics on the Force’s ethnic composition are not made available, the optics on the 244 recruits as of May 2019 do not suggest that the recommendations of the Disciplined Forces Commission (DFC), as far as “ethnic diversity” is concerned, were being implemented. Especially since the latter had specified measures to increase the number of Indian Guyanese in the GPF.The DFC, of which now President David Granger was a member, conducted hearings in 2003 and submitted its 164 recommendations to Parliament in 2004; Seventy-one recommendations concerned the Guyana Police Force. The Commission recommended, with regard to manpower, that the Police Force should aim at achieving greater ethnic diversity without employing a quota system. To achieve this, ethnically diverse recruitment teams should be employed as openly and extensively as possible.The Recommendations were finally approved by a Select Parliamentary Committee in 2010. Two new Police Training Centres had been opened in the meantime: in Berbice and Essequibo, as recommended, but the initiative on Indigenous Peoples is the first on the diversity front.While, just before Independence, the PPP had strenuously argued for the GPF to be made more ethnically diverse; after the free and fair elections of 1992, they attempted no rectification of the historically enforced imbalances. Subsequent to the post-1997 elections’ ethnic violence, constitutional changes following the Herdmanston Accord were introduced in 2000, and one clause called for a Commission to enquire into, among other things, “the composition” of the entire Disciplined Forces, which includes the GPF. The changes mandated by the DSC in 2010 were constitutionally sanctioned, and there ought to be reasons why they are evidently being ignored.The British had insisted, as part of the conditions for granting Independence to Guyana under the PNC, that the latter rectify the imbalance in the armed forces, including the GPF, as identified by the PPP. The International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), invited by the PNC in 1965 to investigate the ethnic imbalances in the state sector and to offer recommendations towards their rectification, declared that in the GPF, Indian Guyanese comprised 20.7%, compared with 71.9% African Guyanese.They recommended that the Police Force should reflect, to a greater degree, the composition of the population. More specifically, that 75% of recruits and cadets for the next five years be Indian-Guyanese, until the goal was reached.The PNC accepted the recommendations of the Commission, and claimed that the very next year, 76 of 102 Police recruits were Indians. However, Prof. K. Danns, in his doctoral thesis on the Guyanese armed forces (Domination and Power in Guyana), claimed that the PNC ceased to make statistics available after 1966, but that data collected by him showed that the Government did not implement the ICJ’s recommendations, and actually decreased the number and percentage of Indians accepted. He showed that between 1970 and 1977, while the size of the Force was being doubled, 92.2% of recruits were Africans, with only 7.84% being Indians.Their numbers dropped to less than ten percent of the GPF.After over a hundred years of being excluded from the GPF, first by the British then by the PNC, Indians had internalised the myth that they were ‘not fit’ to be Policemen. Some of the few who bucked the tide were peripheralised. Indians who were accepted after the 1970s were placed in the Special Branch, (plain clothes) and posted to Indian villages to spy on their fellow Indians. This policy created further distrust of the Police Force among Indians.Now that the GPF has initiated its push for diversity in the Indigenous communities, as per the recommendations of the DFC, they should finally rectify the historical anomaly in the Indian Guyanese community.last_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,The GAWU has seen, in several sections of the media, reports regarding the status of the $30 billion bond that was secured by the National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL) to recapitalise the estates under the stewardship of the Guyana Sugar Corporation Inc (GuySuCo).The bond had come into being after the seemingly clandestine transfer of the Corporation’s shares, among other things, to the Government’s holding company.The March 29, 2018 Stabroek News reported that the Special Purpose Unit (SPU) of NICIL, which apparently was instrumental in the bond’s birthing, said it would “…provide a much-needed capital injection, support infrastructure maintenance… and develop new co-generation capacity to support estate operations and sell to the national power grid”.Our Union, as a concerned stakeholder, after learning about the bond through media reports, sought an audience with NICIL-SPU and the GuySuCo regarding its plans for the large sum it was intent at that time to borrow. At an April 19, 2018 meeting with officials of the sugar corporation and the SPU, the GAWU learnt that monies were earmarked towards improving cane production and productivity, as well as enhancing factory operations. Sums, we were told too, were identified for ventures into electricity generation and plantation white sugar.The GAWU, at that time, while welcoming the ideas, did express concern that it appeared there was no firm plan to guide how the monies that would be secured would finally be spent. To that end, we urged NICIL-SPU and the GuySuCo to collaborate on working out the finer details of that plan. We even went as far as offering views to allow for a more rounded and well-thought-out road map.Notwithstanding what we felt was a valuable suggestion, the bodies charged with managing the affairs of the sugar industry have apparently not worked out a proper and workable plan. That suggestion, we must add, the GAWU has reiterated on many occasions.We should not fail to add that Finance Minister Winston Jordan, responding to questions posed to him in Parliament by the Opposition, did say that a plan was worked out. We, sadly, have to say that we take the Minister’s utterances with a pinch of salt; as, if such a plan does really exist, it must be the most closely-guarded secret in the history of Guyana.Moreover, had such a plan really been a reality, the lamentations by NICIL’s Head (ag), Mr Colvin Heath-London, and the responses by the Corporation’s CEO, Dr Harold Davis Jr, we believe would not have been heard. Undoubtedly, the plan, among other things, would have clearly set out the parameters for disbursements and accountability.Rather than ironing out these matters very early on, we see the apparent chasms rising to the surface, and complaints and disagreements between NICIL-SPU and GuySuCo appearing ever so often.Also of concern to us is that, so far, though roughly a quarter of the bond has been disbursed, no tangible progress has been seen. We recall that the Leader of the Opposition, Bharrat Jagdeo, had previously expressed concern about the lag between implementation and securing of the funds, and the heavy interest costs that would have to be borne in the intervening period.From all appearances, the Opposition Leader was right; as NICIL, according to the media, will channel to the bondholders several hundred million dollars in interest, while the specific capital which was to work to secure the industry’s viability, it seems, appears nowhere on the horizon.Concerns, we see too, were expressed by NICIL regarding the probability of default. This is something that is not in our interest, especially considering that the bond has essentially mortgaged the assets of the Guyanese people. For current and future generations of Guyanese, this would be an unwelcome disaster.The entire imbroglio that is unfolding we see as yet another manifestation of the Administration’s misadventure and undoubted poor policy making regarding the sugar industry; which will further negatively impact national interests. As we well know, the Government’s action and/or inaction regarding the industry has been one of the more difficult times of our nation’s recent history. It is a period which has seen the largest retrenchment exercise in Guyana’s history, and a period that has brought about tremendous hardship and grave difficulty for thousands of Guyanese people of varying walks of life.Yours faithfully,Seepaul NarineGeneral SecretaryGAWUlast_img read more

first_img– proper facilities, equipment neededConcerns have been raised by Regional Councillors of Region 10 (Upper Demerara/Berbice) Democratic Council (RDC) following a recent visit to numerous Health Centres across the region by the administration’s Works Committee.Of major concerns are the One Mile Health Centre at Wismar, Linden and Old England Health Centre at Mackenzie.During this month’s statutory meeting Councillor Charles Sampson pointed to several issues at the Old England Centre which he said needs to be addressed immediately.While he urged the Regional Health Department to step up efforts, he questioned whether the department ever conducts visits.He pointed out too that the facility appears to be too small to serve the growing community.“The Old England Health Centre is too small. There is no space…it needs expansion. When you go in there, you shuffling between people. They want chairs, they want equipment and when we went, there one working light. All the other lights were not working, were recently installed, brand new but they aren’t working…the people in that area are suffering every day,” he explained.Sampson said too that there is an absence of potable water at the facility and for staff to secure water they have to manually fetch it. He called on the RDC to put systems in place to facilitate the regular supply of water to the health institution, while noting that due to its landscape, water accumulates inside the compound when it rains, resulting in flooding.Alluding to conditions at the One Mile Health Centre, he said the facility which stores medical supplies for other health centres in the community does not have backup power supply during power outages, as was witnessed by the visiting team. The existing generator is out of order.“There are a litany of woes at the One Mile Health Centre. There were so many things that were discussed with the nurses and the people who administer, that one wonders if the Regional Health Department ever visits these places”, the Councillor vocally wondered at the meeting.In addition, he pointed to garbage build-up and overgrown vegetation in the compound: “Why can’t we keep those facilities clean?” he wanted to know.The councillor also explained that he was informed that concerns raised by staff at the health centre allegedly results in threats of transfers.Additionally, Sampson stressed the need for an emergency response to address some of the issues. He stated that all the centres visited including the Wisroc and Coomacka Health Centres appeared to have one common issue: dilapidated equipment for staff nurses.Sampson explained that there is usually no proper response from the Health Department when written to on numerous issues: “There are lots of issues that have to be addressed immediately, and we are talking about people’s health”, he stressed.On the flipside, Sampson said the Health Centre at Coomacka is in good shape.Meanwhile, Councillor Douglas Gittens, part of the visiting team, said the burning of garbage in open spaces was a common practice by those health centres visited; he made calls for the construction of incinerators.Gittens also requested that a letter be written to the relevant health authorities to enquire about the faecal coliform level of the water in the Region, since he said it is considered extremely high.In a response to several issues outlined, Regional Chairman Renis Morian said he sincerely hopes that no staff is transferred for highlighting such issues, while noting that it is disturbing that in the quest to seek the necessary upgrades they are targeted:“Our nurses and support staff shouldn’t feel afraid of anybody. Nobody shouldn’t threaten anybody if they’re asking for their work conditions to be improved…I’m saying that if you’re threatening the workers in Region 10, then you aren’t supposed to be working in Region 10…because people continue to ask for an evolution of their work environment to feel better,” Morian said.He also made a promise to meet with leaders in the Region’s health departments, as he urged all to work towards having the issues addressed.last_img read more

first_imgBroadcast Bill– calls on Govt to deal with substantive issuesThe Broadcast (Amendment) Bill has been passed in the National Assembly, but former Attorney General Anil Nandlall is asserting that the Government is yet to deal with broadcasters’ concerns. This includes the impact the Bill, if enforced, would have on a number of rights, including property rights.According to Nandlall, the one-hour imposition on broadcasters to carry Public Service Announcements (PSA’s) free of charge has an impact on property rights of the broadcasters. He noted that since these media outfits are in the business of selling airtime, this free one-hour imposition amounts to expropriation of their money.“It is trite law that property includes money. So this free one-hour imposition by the State will amount to compulsory acquisition of private property without compensation and therefore, violates Article 142 of the Constitution.”“Some media operators estimate their loss will be nearly $1 million per month as they sell one-hour airtime for $30,000,” he said.He noted that there are other facets of the Bill which render it “draconian, oppressive and resultantly unconstitutional.”“For example, the regime of new fees, unlike what the Prime Minister says, would cost broadcasters much more as they now have to pay, not only a fixed fee, but a fee for every zone in which they will be licenced to broadcast.”“So, a radio station with which I am familiar now pays an annual fee of $2.5 million to broadcast. When the Amendment comes into force, and if that radio station is licensed to broadcast to the same spectrum reach which it now enjoys, its fees will be increased to nearly $8 million, annually, because of the zoning system which the amendment imposes.”He stated that the Constitution should not allow such conditions to be imposed upon broadcasters, who are guaranteed fundamental rights and freedoms by it.“The Constitution would regard these conditionalities as undue fetters which would make the true enjoyment of the civil liberties it guarantees, as illusory. They will be struck down as unconstitutional. I believe that I have provided sufficient grounds for the Government to proffer some answers.”In addition, Nandlall criticised the Prime Minister, who championed the Bill, for glossing over the more troublesome aspects of the Bill.Part two of the Bill sets out that broadcast agencies will be mandated to broadcast public service programmes for a total of up to one hour daily. Broadcast agencies will be airing these public service programmes free of cost and as requested by the Government between 06:00h and 22:00h.The Bill also states that the Guyana National Broadcasting Authority (GNBA) reserves the right to direct a broadcaster to broadcast emergency notices for any length of time. This can even be done during peak or prime advertising time. A broadcaster will have the right to file a complaint with the GNBA within 24 hours of being asked to broadcast a programme free of cost if, in the agency’s judgment, it is not considered a public service broadcast programme.But there is a warning for broadcasters daring to oppose the legislation: the Bill states that any broadcaster the GNBA finds to have “arbitrarily refused” to broadcast a public service broadcast programme without lodging a complaint has committed an offence.Even before its passage, broadcasters have already come out in opposition to the new proposed measures. Using its seat majority, however, the Government had forged ahead with its passage over the opposition from the other side of the House.last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000KPL and Gor Mahia chairman, Ambrose Rachier holding the ball when launching his FKF presidential bid on October 6, 2015 at Nyayo National Stadium. PHOTO/Courtesy.NAIROBI, October 6 – Kenyan Premier League and Gor Mahia chairman, Ambrose Rachier promised new management training programmes in all leagues if elected Football Kenya Federation president at November 13 national elections will be held November 13.Rachier, who was endorsed by 12 Branches to vie for the top job, made the announcement on Tuesday when declaring his candidature in Nairobi. He called on the FKF Electoral Board chaired by lawyer, Donald Kipkorir, to nullify the vetting of sub-branch and branch delegate clubs already underway describing the process flawed.“We aware in certain counties and sub counties, delegates are being appointed from clubs which have never participated in any league. The moment we begin to get briefcase clubs enlisted that’s rigging.“What is important is to deal with true stakeholders and promote democracy to make sure democratic elections are held from the grassroots. One of my main aims is to get rid of the shenanigans and get people who are truly for development of football,” the veteran prominent lawyer declared.However, Rachier who finished fourth in the last elections that ushered incumbent Sam Nyamweya in 2011 urged the Electoral Board to roll out its rules so that candidates can be sure of a free and fair exercise.“The Board should set the ball rolling because we don’t know the timelines. We need this to be done soon to get the candidates nominated then they hand over the electoral process to IEBC for transparent elections.“We will lobby to those who are in authority to ensure it’s done at the proper pace because when who you include people who have not being participating in football, to me that is the beginning of rigging.”Rachier believes his eight years leadership at record 15 times KPL champions Gor and two years at KPL speaks volumes and believes he will bring wealth of experience.His key pillars are ensuring new youth programmes, coaches and referees training for both male and female, better playing fields and player/fan friendly stadia, plans and support for all national teams as well as ensuring public and private sector partnerships.“For too long, Kenyan football has had too many recurring negatives and too few permanent positives. If elected, my FKF stewardship will focus on building the positives.“A major positive is the recent FKF-KPL Memorandum of Understanding which promises stability for the next five years. I was in the race four years ago but lost but I now believe Kenyans have seen my work,” he added.Rachier became the fifth candidate to join the race that has Nyamweya, vice president, Sammy Sholei, businessman Gor Semalang’o, FKF Premier League chairman, Nick Mwendwa and former Gor forward Ken Oliech.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
