– several not complying with rules and regulationsSeveral purported reputable food establishment in the city have not been complying with basic public health and sanitation rules and regulations as prescribed by the Municipal Act Chapter 28:01. This state of affairs has been duly amplified by the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) following inspections carried out on Friday at several city establishments by the Municipal Medical Officer of Health, Dr Bizuayehu Jeffrey and a team of officials. In a statement issued by Public Relations Officer, Royston King, having visited several restaurants operating in the city, Dr Jeffrey in her report deduced that “many big food establishments that offer foods for sale to the general public have not been complying with basic public health and sanitation rules and regulations.”It was also detailed in the report that in one case, staffers preparing foods were scantily dressed. In another case, a restaurant with over 100 employees had only one cook with the appropriate food handler’s certificate. “These are very serious violations of the rules because they put at risk the health of citizens.”“The Municipality is very disappointed with the actions of the owners of those establishments. Therefore, they were advised to put themselves in order and comply with the regulations, ” King disclosed. Accordingly, the Municipality is calling on all owners of restaurants and provision shops that operate in the city to ensure that they meet all the appropriate requirements.Additionally, he revealed that those persons who are desirous of engaging in the sale of food should contact the Public Health Department of the Municipality situated at South Road, Georgetown. Those who neglect to comply will in fact face prosecution, King asserted.A few months ago the Municipality announced plans to possibly resume the grading of restaurants and food processing facilities in the city in an attempt to ensure that citizens are afforded only wholesome foods.  King at that point revealed that this measure was utilised in the past and had yielded much success. However, with the phasing out of this measure, it has been observed that the standards of some food establishments have considerably depreciated over the years.“We did this because we recognised the need for citizens to know how well their restaurants are doing in terms of providing wholesome foods for them. So perhaps we need to look at restarting the process of grading these eating places, ” he noted.According to King, this matter should have been brought to the attention of the Medical Officer of Health, whose purview it is to initiate the proposed move. However, in the interim, the Municipality through its Meat and Food Inspectorate has been investigating various eating establishments. But though this has been a routine practice, it has been somewhat inconsistent due to the shortage of staff and other resources.“We have been trying our best under the circumstances but we have been getting some complaints about certain restaurants in the city and we are taking action, ” King revealed.Hotels that are known for preparing foods will also come under scrutiny, Chief Vector Control Officer, Kenneth Stephens had revealed. According to him, his department is engaged in a yearly exercise to conduct inspection activities of hotels around the city, adding that while there are some facilities that are on par with international standards, Cheap Jerseys Authentic, there are some barely on the borderline. The purpose of this annual engagement, he said, is to ensure that these facilities are registered and certified once they reach the minimum public health requirement as outlined by the Municipality. As such Stephens warned that owners of hotels, guesthouses and apartment buildings around the city should cooperate with the Municipality by paying their registration fees once they have been given approval to operate.The call for the grading of eating places comes on the heels of attempts by the Municipality to halt the operation of food and fruit vendors who do not comply with hygienic rules and regulations. These vendors, according to King, will come under the microscope in a matter of weeks, as the Municipality is currently streamlining a massive campaign aimed at stamping out all operations that do not comply with the relevant requirements needed to undertake a food business. To this end an emergency meeting was engaged earlier this year by the Municipality’s Medical Officer of Health. King said that during that meeting concerns about the way foods are currently being prepared and sold in various parts of the city were expressed by the Medical Officer.

By Rabindra Rooplall Six Death Row inmates yesterday had their sentences commuted to life imprisonment. The prisoners were taken off Death Row after a ruling was made by Chief Justice Ian Chang.The main reason offered was that the men had been on Death Row for too long and to execute them now would be inhumane treatment. Their stay on Death Row for such a prolonged period meant that they had served a life sentence and to hang them would be to punish them twice, the Chief Justice said in an earlier interview.What has been tested is the provision in Article 39 (2) (introduced in 2001) of the Constitution, which stipulates that in the interpretation of the fundamental rights provisions in the Constitution a court is to pay due regard to international law, international conventions, covenants and charters bearing on human rights.Those whose sentences were commuted were Terrance Sahadeo, Ganga Deolall, Bharat Raj Mulai and his brother Lallman Mulai, Kornel Vaux and his brother Daniel Vaux.Attorney at Law Nigel Hughes filed the petition for the Mulai brothers while Attorney Simone Morris-Ramlall represented the others. Each provided the services pro bono.Terrence Sahadeo and Muntaz Ali were condemned to death for the 1985 murder of 18-year-old Roshana Kassim of Sheet Anchor, East Canje. They had been convicted with Shireen Khan. They have been in prison for over 28 years. Shireen Khan died in the New Amsterdam Female Prison in December 2009. Before she died she expressed the hope that she could be paroled so that she could see her grandchildren for the first time. She never got that wish.One other woman remains on Death Row.Ganga Deolall was arrested on October 26, 1993 and charged with the murder of Yvette Lall on November 3, 1993. The body of 29-year-old Yvette Lall washed up at the La Grange koker with a slab of concrete in her stomach and a crankshaft tied to it. The victim’s head had been placed in a plastic bag, and her intestines removed from her gaping stomach before she was submerged in the Demerara River, according to the evidence.On November 22, 1995, Deolall was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. The Court of Appeal dismissed his appeal and affirmed the death sentence on January 30, 1997.  He had his death warrant read to him twice but he got a stay of execution on both occasions.Lallman and Bharatraj Mulai have been on Death Row since July 1994, when they were sentenced to death for the 1992 murder of Doodnauth Seeram at Mahaica Creek. The Court of Appeal set aside the death sentence and ordered a retrial in 1995. Again the Mulais were convicted and sentenced to death a year later. The Court of Appeal affirmed the sentence on appeal.After several requests to the government for information on the case in April 1998, December 1998, December 2000, Larry Doby Indians Jersey, August 2001 and March 2003 went unanswered; the United Nations Human Rights Committee concluded in August 2004 that the brothers’ trial had been unfair and recommended “an effective remedy, including commutation of their death sentences.The Vaux brothers were arrested and charged with the July 1993 murder of Baiwant Jaikissoon, an airport worker, and were subsequently sentenced to death after being convicted for the murder on December 19, 1997. They subsequently appealed their conviction to the Court of Appeal of Guyana, and their appeal was dismissed on December 07, 2000.For a number of years the International Human Rights Commission has been plugging for the abolition of the death penalty in many countries. It described the death penalty as barbaric.

It's better to leave the room a bit open than cram it towards the brim with furniture.

A well built wine rack or wine server can become an attractive bit of dining-room furniture or hallway furnishing. Hardware that appears out of place in the drawer will not likely match the design at all.
