A Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara couple is concerned about the wellbeing of their only child, since they are fearful that her life may be in jeopardy due to an unusual defect with which she was diagnosed as a toddler.The child, Sasha Devi Bharat, who is now five years old, was found to be inflicted with Ichtyyosis when she was just three months old.Ichtyyosis is said to be a disease which is inherited, but according to the child’s father, Ganga Bharat, he is not aware of any family member who has ever contracted such a disease. The disease manifests itself as retained keratin in large brown scales that lift at the periphery.And because of a hair shaft defect, hairs may be sparse or absent, and extensive involvement of the elbows, knees and ankles as well as involvement of the palms and soles is common. The visible parts of Sasha’s anatomy which were seen yesterday were badly affected.Bharat said that, as a baby, he and his wife, Jennifer Persaud, had observed that Sasha’s skin was actually peeling off.According to Persaud, prior to the peeling of the skin, some boils had appeared on the child’s skin, and they appeared to have been causing her to itch. The boils eventually burst, and some were bloody and others just oozed a watery substance, she said.The child was taken to several doctors, Bharat said, who could not ascertain what was the problem affecting the child.And since there was no treatment for the child’s problem, Bharat said, they were forced to keep her from school, since the other children would tease her or even be hostile towards her because of the condition.But it was two months ago, he said, that the child’s condition worsened. He recounted that she had to be taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) suffering from severe vomiting and diarrhoeal spells.It was while the child was admitted at the hospital, according to Bharat, that she was examined by a Cuban doctor.He said that the doctor took over the case and opted to carry out a skin biopsy along with some blood tests on the child. He was then able to determine that she was afflicted with the disease.Bharat said that the doctor revealed that only one in every 600, 000 persons will contract the disease, even as he disclosed that it is often adults that become subjected to it.The doctor also informed the couple that there is no cure for the disease, but advised them that the child’s life could be prolonged if she was able to live continuously in a cool environment.As such, it was suggested that the child either migrates to a cooler country or that her parents find a specially air-conditioned room for her.Armed with a letter from the doctor at the GPHC, the couple yesterday visited the Ministry of Health, Gerard Pique Jersey, seeking assistance to help prolong their daughter’s life.And since the ministry can only help financially with health problems, the family was provided with a letter of recommendation to help them find the necessary assistance.The couple said that their initial move is to make a request to the Canadian Embassy to see if the child would be allowed a one or two-year visa to see if the climate there could ease the problem.They will also be seeking the assistance of the Ministry of Human Services and Social Security in order to create the recommended environment for the child, should the visa acquisition plan fall through.The couple is also requesting the assistance of the general public.Anyone wishing to render assistance can reach the family on telephone number 662-9783 or visit them at their Lot 500, Block 8, Mon Repos, East Coast Demerara home.

–to decentralize Government servicesThe government is looking to put in place a town in each of Guyana’s coastal regions; Region ThreePresident David Granger(Essequibo Islands/West Demerara), Region Four (Demerara/Mahaica) and Region Five (Mahaica/Berbice).President David Granger made this announcement on the weekly television show ‘the Public Interest’. He pointed to the regions’ decentralized system of government services as something which can be fixed if they each have capital towns.“As you know, Ashley Young Jersey UK, there are three coastal regions which do not have capital towns, ” Granger stated. “In Region Three (Essequibo Islands/West Demerara), you have Vreed En Hoop, which is not much of a town.”He also referenced Region Four, pointing out that Georgetown was the capital of the Republic of Guyana and not Region Four. Granger went on to note one location of interest, Triumph/Beterverwagting, which holds the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) office.“And then in Region Five (Mahaica/Berbice), ” Granger stated. “(There is) Fort Wellington (which has) the Police Station and Magistrate’s Court.”Pointing out the disadvantages of the current system, Granger noted that in Region Nine, to register a business one has to travel to Suddie, in Region Two. He described this current system as bizarre, when they should have been able to transact their business in their own region.“That is how bizarre our current system is. If you are a businessman in Rupununi/Lethem, (why should) you have to go to Suddie? It’s a crazy system. So we are trying to regularize the system by having capital towns. If you live, for instance in Aishalton, you ought to go to Lethem.”“I am looking to create three capital towns in these three coastal regions, so that every region can have a capital town, and that capital town will have its own airport, banks, NIS and GRA office. The idea is that people living in any region should be able to go to that capital town and transact their business.”According to the Head of State, these regions currently had ‘proto-towns’; that is they haven’t fully developed. He named Vreed-En-Hoop or Parika in Region Three and Blairmont or Rosignol in West Berbice as locations Government was looking at.“All the government functions that are so centralized, should be decentralized. It has started to happen. In East Berbice, there is already a Supreme Court and government offices. And this should be replicated in all ten regions.”Granger also responded to queries on why Mahdia has not been designated as a town yet. He stated that technical and legal issues such as boundary demarcation still had to be sorted out. However, he stated that before year end Mahdia would be a town.Guyana has ten Administrative Regions and nine Towns. Those towns are Georgetown, Linden, Rose Hall, Corriverton, Anna Regina and New Amsterdam, Bartica, Mabaruma and Lethem.Mayors and Deputy Mayors for each of these towns were recently sworn in by Granger, though controversy subsequently erupted regarding the election of Henry Smith as Mayor and Astrilla Gammel as Deputy Mayor of Mabaruma.

Commissioner of Police Henry Greene has said that the move by the Administration to introduce polygraph testing in the force is welcomed.Responding to the question recently by media operatives about the move, Greene said he believes it is a very sensible move.He pointed out that in almost every Caribbean country polygraph testing is required before being employed, and now that it is being implemented in the force he has no problem with it.Asked if he feels this would be a deterrent for persons desirous of joining the Police Force, Jeff Zatkoff Penguins Jersey, Greene said no.“Already as it is, persons have many other reasons why they wouldn’t want to join the force, so to say this would be a deterrent is not really accurate, ” Greene added.He further explained that the force has not yet met with the administration to discuss at what point and for whom the polygraph test would be required, but the move is very much welcomed.When asked what this would mean for senior officers who would have served the force for several years, Greene maintained that the initiative is welcomed.Meanwhile in the past several other employees of various organisations have been subjected to polygraph testing.Among those were the employees of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU). When it was found that several of the employees failed the test they were sent home.The then head of CANU Orville Nedd and some eight other employees were sent packing.It has since been reported that polygraph testing has already begun in the police force, and has been going on for the past three days.Members of the Guyana Revenue Authority have already been notified that they are to undergo the tests. They were supposed to attend a briefing session at Office of the President yesterday. However, that briefing session was postponed.

He was shot.On Tuesday, Salim was committed to stand trial at the conclusion of a preliminary inquiry which was conducted by Magistrate Krisendat Persaud at the Springlands Magistrate’s court.The murdered policeman was found slumped in his car on a desolate stretch of road at Jackson Creek, Upper Corentyne with two bullet wounds to his head.The case for the prosecution which was led by police Superintendent Robert Tyndall, who was specially appointed to prosecute the matter, was that sometime between September 13 and September 14, 2012 at Jackson Creek, Bacchus murdered Detective Constable Jirahan Diananand.Bacchus was represented by Attorneys at Law Ramesh Rajkumar and Mursalene Bacchus.The story came to light after three men were arrested following a carjacking incident at the same Jackson Creek on the Upper Corentyne. Two of them were arrested by the West Berbice police. They were Salim Bacchus’ nephews. They were held with another youth and subsequently admitted to the carjacking.After intense grilling by investigators they also admitted to knowing about the killing of Detective Diananand. They implicated Bacchus as the gunman. They allegedly told investigators that Bacchus shot Diananand twice in the head after a pre arranged deal went sour.A wanted bulletin was issued for his arrest and Bacchus accompanied by Attorney at Law Rajkumar turned himself in to the CID office at Central Police Station, New Amsterdam.During the trial, prosecution star witnesses Azim Seegobin and Azam Bacchus, Troy Polamalu College Jersey, two nephews of Bacchus gave their evidence in chief and related the sequence of events of what transpired on the fateful night and after. They were cross examined.Also during the P.I the two sides had a number of issues, including the defence demanding a copy of the statement of one of the prosecution’s star witness who had admitted under cross examination that he had refreshed his memory from the statement before he entered the witness box.The prosecution complied.Bacchus is the brother of Azad Bacchus, also known as ‘AK 472 , who was killed in a shootout with the Berbice Anti-Smuggling Squad (BASS) in 2001. He and three other men were previously charged in connection with a 40 kilogrammes cocaine bust in November 2011.Bacchus was acquitted in June 2012 but the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) appealed the acquittal.
