âIt must be a transparent process. If interviewed by a panel and they are the best, Jerseys NFL Wholesale, I will agree.âBy Abena RockcliffeA Partnership for National Unity (APNU) leader, David Granger yesterday refuted the statements made by Attorney General Anil Nandlall in relation to confirmation of Justice Carl Singh as Chancellor and Justice Ian Chang  as Chief Justice.The Opposition Leader told media operatives that the Attorney General (AG) lied, and that Nandlall was not even part of the meeting during which the subject was discussed.Kaieteur News yesterday reported the AG as saying that the government is seeking to confirm Justice Singh and Justice Chang in their respective positions that they are currently acting âChancellor of the Judiciary and Chief Justice â but Granger had said no to this proposal.Nandlall also told the press that even though Granger was opposed to the appointment, he offered no reason to support his stance.The AG said, too, that both Singh and Chang have security of tenure, given the positions they hold. Singh is substantive Chief Justice while Chang holds the position of a Court of Appeal Judge.In accordance with Article 127 (1) of the Constitution, the President and the Leader of the Opposition must agree on the appointment of the Chancellor and Chief Justice.Granger stressed yesterday that the Constitution did not stipulate for a mere consultation, but a complete agreement to be made between the Head of State and the Opposition Leader.Former Leader of the Peopleâs National Congress Reform (PNC/R) Robert Corbin started consultation some eight years with the then President, Bharrat Jagdeo, but that ended in deadlock.Granger informed that he met with President Donald Ramotar on March 6 of this year. He said that he was accompanied by two attorneys at law from APNU, while the President was accompanied by only his advisor, Dr Roger Luncheon. Granger said that at the meeting he proposed âa series of measuresâ in order to break the deadlock.The Opposition Leader said he told the President that the vacancies should be advertised in the Eastern Caribbean, where other jurisdictions share Guyanaâs laws. He said that the move is so that the people of Guyana can be assured that the best person would be appointed.According to Granger, the President did not, at that time, indicate if he agreedâ¦âbut I would like to point out that APNU was not opposed to any particular names⦠names were not a part of the discussionâ.Granger said that the discussion was more about the method to be used to appoint. âSo I would like to point out that the statement alleged to be made by the AG to the effect that I said no is a lie.âFurther, Granger sought to clear the air on the statement that he had advanced no reasons, saying that he âadvanced very clear reasons why the process that was initiated by the President should be taken to another stage. It must be a transparent process.âThe Opposition Leader pressed again that Nandlall issued a âblatant lie in the pressâ, and disclosed that he wrote the President to have the AG withdraw his statements.Granger said that Singh is the substantive Chief Justice and Chang is a substantive Justice of Appeal, and he doesnât propose that they be removed from those positions.âAfter eight years of deadlock we need to move forward and I proposed a methodology to move forwardâ¦and if interviewed by a panel and they are the best, I will agree.âGranger pointed out the Chief Justice of Belize is Guyanese, âso letâs go for the best and if it turns out that they are the best so be it⦠but letâs embark on a transparent process.âAPNU Member of Parliament Joseph Harmon stated emphatically that the partyâs objection was all about the process, not personalities.âWhat must not escape us is the timing of the statement. This discussion was since March 6, and the AG is seeking to redirect the nationâs discourse away from the obvious incompetence and disregard for the rule of law by the government. They are trying to take the publicâs eye off the non-compliance with the recommendations of CFATF (Caribbean Financial Action Task Force), which is that the opposition should be consulted, in dealing with the Anti Money Laundering Bill.âHarmon said that Nandlall is misleading the nation both on matters related to the budget cuts of 2012 and about the Presidentâs non compliance to the constitution as it relates to the signing of two opposition-proposed Bills.âIt is clear that Nandlallâs advice to the President is bad, his advice about constitutionality is bad.â

The bauxite centennial committee in collaboration with the Guyana Post Office Corporation recently unveiled four centennial stamps in observance of the bauxite industryâs centennial anniversary.The unveiling was done at the Three Friends Mine, Region Ten, the site where bauxite was first mined in October 1916, and where the first bridge (Hope) over the Demerara River, was established.Chief engineer of BOSAI minerals, Wholesale NFL Jerseys, and member of the Bauxite Century committee, Orin Barnwell, provided a breakdown of the evolution of bauxite from 1916 to 2016.Barnwell highlighted the early days of mining which involved manual labour with pick axes and shovels.In his reflections, Barnwell pointed out that in 1916 pick axes and shovels were the tools of extraction while mule carts and wooden barges or punts were used to transport the ore.He spoke of how a nine mile long railway was established in 1920 from Three Friends Mine to Mackenzie and the how instruments of that time were steam shovels and locomotives.According to Barnwell, in 1939 during the Second World War, Guyana exported 4.6 million tons of bauxite to Canada for the production of aluminium war planes. By that time the industry was using diesel and electrical powered machinery.Then came the 1960âs â the era of the bucket wheel excavator and the eight walking draglines.The year 2003 saw the implementation of hydraulic excavators and off highway trucks. This was largely due to the energy deficiency of 2003. The industry also stopped using explosives, that year, Barnwell said.Steve Connolly, author of âChildren of Watookaâ, a son of expatriates who was born in Guyana spoke about the bauxite industry from an expatriate point of view.The Guyana Post Office Corporation was represented by Postmaster General, Karen Brown, who introduced the stamps and provided background to the collaboration of the GPOC and the Bauxite Century Committee to make the stamps a reality.The Stamps were funded by R.U.S.A.L Guyana Bauxite Company Incorporated.Brown said that the stamps will be available in $80, $140, $150, $180 denominations at post offices country wide.She reflected on the British Guiana one-cent black on magenta which was printed in Georgetown, Guyana in April 1856, and is now one of the most valuable, rare and famous stamps in the world. It was issued in limited numbers in British Guiana (now Guyana) 160 years ago.In 2014, the stamp was sold for US$9.58 million. It has broken the world record for a single stamp auction price. The stamp is now on display at the American Postal Museum in Washington DC.Brown said that the âCommemorative stamps are the perfect memorabilia to celebrate an anniversary or significant event such as this since it is circulated both locally and internationally to a wide cross section of people.âSpeaking on behalf of the Minister of Public Telecommunication was her advisor, Enrico Woolford, who noted that the unveiling of the stamps âserves as a reminder of our right to disseminate and receive informationâ.He said that the event also shows the relevance of the post office and expressed the hope to soon see post offices as information, Communication, technology (ICT) hubs in the near future as part of Guyanaâs E-Governance plans.The stamps were unveiled by Enrico Woolford, aided by BC committee Chairman Horace James, Three Friends Mineâs oldest resident Leah Lorimer and a student of the Coomacka Primary School.Highlights of the ceremony included cultural presentations by four time consecutive champions of the festival of choirs competition, the Region Ten choir, and poetry by Coomacka primary student Romona Fraser and Kezia McDonald from Regma Primary School. Both poems were reflections of bauxite mining.

â Ramsammy urges victims to file complaints with Health Ministry By Keeran Singh Health Minister Dr. Leslie Ramsammy has confirmed that he has received complaints of physicians and other public health employees soliciting financial contributions from their patients.The minister was responding to a Kaieteur News query about allegations of Guyana-based Cuban doctors accepting monetary and other gifts from patients for medical services.He added that this is unacceptable and the Ministry is trying to control this situation but needs the publicâs co-operation.Ramsammy stressed that patients utilizing public health treatment should refuse to pay for services and complain formally with supporting evidence to his Ministry.âGenerally speaking I do believe it happened and we have cases where doctors no longer work with us. It is due process and there is a need to document complaints, NFL Jerseys China Wholesale, â he stated.Kaieteur News has received several complaints about some Cuban doctors providing preferential treatment to patients who reward them with gifts including Blackberry phones, I-Pods and cash.A local medical staffer alleged that this malpractice has contributed to the lengthy waiting hours patients encounter at these public facilities.Kaieteur News was told that at the Leonora Cottage Hospital, West Coast Demerara, where there are reportedly seven Cuban doctors and one Guyanese doctor, the waiting period for the âpoorâ is lengthy, while the more affluent are prioritized.According to a source, this situation was so alarming at the health facility that patients openly complained and a meeting was recently held to address the matter. However, some employees believe that the culprits are still involved in this practice.This situation reportedly also exists at another diagnostic centre in Region Four.Some of the Cuban doctors stationed at the Leonora Cottage Hospital are also being accused of conducting private practices utilizing the hospitalâs medical supplies.It was noted that medications go missing from shelves and some patients who visit the hospital for follow-up treatment would reveal that a certain doctor visited their homes and performed certain procedures.In relation to this, Dr. Ramsammy stated that the Cuban doctors should not be in private practice. He posited that patients should provide names of the doctors who are involved so that appropriate action can be taken.The Minister further noted that the same persons who complain are the ones encouraging the situation.In addition, the health sector has been trying to have accountability in health facilities but there is room for the misappropriation of medical supplies.Patients have been complaining that there is a serious language barrier between the Cuban doctors and themselves. This has resulted in them depending on the Guyanese nurses for clarification.Minister within the Ministry of Health, Dr. Bheri Ramsaran stated that the Cuban doctors have been exposed to English classes to help them interact with patients but according to Cuban doctors they never attended any classes. Whatever English they know was learned in Cuba and it was expanded through interaction with patients.Dr. Ramsaran further noted that the Ministry is pairing doctors so that both Cuban and Guyanese doctors work together. However, this cannot be done at the Leonora Cottage Hospital because there are seven Cuban doctors and only one Guyanese doctor.However, one medical practitioner noted that despite the shortcomings, the Cuban medical staffers provide important services for Guyanese. It was emphasized that the 300 medical students scheduled to return home in 2012 would not be able to provide these services like these specialists
