Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon, has said that Cabinet has endorsed the Lethem Development plan and the Linden Road Development plan, after discussing the two presentations by the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission and the Central Housing and Planning Authority.Dr. Luncheon explained that the Lethem Development plan focuses on the physical, social and economic features of the area, as it recognises a future in which residential, agricultural, agro-industrial, recreation and energy sector prospects will dominate.Meanwhile, the Linden Road Development plan was outlined in a similar fashion as it deals with an imaginary corridor stretching along the proposed roadway from Lethem to Linden, and extending variable distances on either side of the road.The plan also examines the prospects for the development along that Lethem/Linden road way, as business, transportation needs and security considerations were also dealt with.As such, Luncheon noted, cabinet endorsed both plans, and agreed that a development body and agency would be established in order to implement the plan.Recently, during a visit to the paved highway from Linden to Lethem, Buy Air Max 1, Prime Minister Samuel Hinds had noted that, while there are good sections of the roadway, there are patches that need to be upgraded, since the aim is to provide an entire route that will allow easier and continuous transportation access.This is important, since the roadway is likely to serve as the main artery from Boa Vista and Manaus, through Lethem and Linden, to Georgetown.Kaieteur News understands that another technical and economic study for paving the roadway is underway, as the establishment of the paved road from Linden to Lethem is estimated at US$150M, while improvement of the bridges may cost an additional US$100M.Consideration is being given to the economic feasibility of the project at this time when there is limited traffic, averaging about five vehicles per day.Government’s investment to improve and maintain the roadway has been costing between $200M and $300M annually since 2005, while there is a programme that focuses on maintenance and upgrading of the bridges.

Yesterday marked 100 years since the Rose Hall Riot in East Canje Berbice, which led to 15 sugar workers losing their lives on March 13, 1913. The workers were all shot by the colonial police on the high bridge leading to the Rose Hall Estate because they protested and refused to work on days for which they were granted leave.Harvesting season ended on January 27, 1913 and the Administrative Manager told the immigrant workers that they were to clean their surroundings.On January 28, the Manager reportedly changed his mind and ordered them to go to work because he had some planting to do. Some were inclined while others were dissuaded from following the orders. The following day, the workers visited the Immigration Agent in Berbice who went the next day to visit the Administration Manager about the situation.Seven men were served summonses to attend court. The Manager asked that they pay the cost for the summons. The workers agreed but to pay it in installments but the Manager rejected the suggestion. The problem escalated from this point.Efforts were made to transfer five immigrants who were considered the ring leaders in the protest and refusal to work. One of them was inclined to go but was pulled away. And the protests intensified as the workers refused to do any work on their ‘leave’ days.Eventually, on March 13, 1913, the Inspector- General with a large force of police went to the Reliance Police Station, collected the arrest warrants and proceeded to the No. 8 Yard. The immigrants grew furious and armed themselves with sticks and bottles.The noise was too loud so they [the immigrants] could not have deciphered what the police’s intentions were or what the police were saying to them. The immigrants could not hear the purpose of their visit due to the noise. The Riot Act was read by the Colonel to them that failure to stop their protests will result in shooting.And it so happened that fifteen workers—14 men and one woman— were killed. Their bodies were transported in jute bags on donkey carts to the New Amsterdam Hospital. Forty- one workers were injured. The dead were: Badri, 26; Bholay, 33; Durga, 72; Gafur, Air Max 95 Sale, 27; Jugai, 30; Juggoo, 37; Hulas, 25; Lalji, 45; Motey Khan, 26; Nibur, 75; Roopan, 25; Sadulla, 23; Sarjoo, 21; Sohan, 33; and the lone female Gobindei, 32.An Inquiry into the events was ordered by the British Government but found no one at fault. The results stated that nobody was to be blamed for the incident. The conclusion was that there was failure of the protestors to heed the police warnings and that the colonial police only went to arrest the five ringleaders of the protest. Some 100 bullets were used in the shootings.A special commemoration event at Rose Hall will be planned shortly, and a temporary plaque will be unveiled.The fifteen workers that were shot are now known as the Rose Hall Estate Martyrs.

Savita Sukul is the Principal Solicitor at, and proprietress of SJS Solicitors. Her role is sole supervisorySavita SukulSolicitor in the firm. Savita has personal and active conduct of the greater majority of the firm’s cases.She was admitted to the Roll of Solicitors of the Senior Courts of England and Wales in December 2003.In 1994 whilst in the final stages of training as a Legal Executive, Savita scored the highest mark nationally in the Law of Probate Practice and was awarded the ILEX Examination Prize Winners Certificate.She was recently recognized for her achievements.Interviewer: What prompted you to seek a career in the legal sector and then progress onto becoming The Principal of SJS Solicitors?Savita: I developed a natural but very minor interest in the legal profession when I was quite young and at secondary education level in Guyana, my home country. I took part in classroom debates that required some basic research and elementary advocacy. The legal profession is highly respected and quite topical in Guyana. It may be that my original interest in that field took birth maybe subconsciously whilst I was a secondary school student.By the time I arrived in the UK in 1988 my adolescent interest in the legal profession had become more pronounced. Within a year or so of my arrival I applied for, and was granted the position of Trusts & Probate clerk at an eminent firm of Solicitors located within the City of Westminster in London.The firm was established well over 200 years ago and is still in practice to date. My pursuit of formal legal studies commenced during this employment. My employers were instrumental in the acquisition of my early legal qualifications. I wish to register my gratitude to them.I had to, with the greatest reluctance, Nike Air Max 98 Gundam 2018, resign my position when my son was born in 1996. My employers offered and I accepted, off-site, part-time employment that lasted over two years. During that stint I considered the establishment of my own ‘law firm’ providing Will writing, family and immigration law services to the public. In October 1998 I purchased the freehold title of a small building located at 82, Balham High Road, in London.In March 1999 I opened Wills & Legal Services at the pavement level office of that building, offering legal services to the public. I continued my pursuit of higher legal studies on a part-time basis and was admitted to the Roll of Solicitors of the Senior Courts of England and Wales in December 2003.On 1st April 2004 I established SJS Solicitors, where I spend so much of my time and energy, and am quite content so to do.Interviewer: What attracted you to specialise in Wills, the law of Trusts and Contentious Probate, immigration and family law?Savita: These specialised areas of law, as well as the law of succession generally, appealed to me during the academic stages of my training and subsisted as I developed plans to establish a firm of Solicitors in London.As I look back on the factors that underpin my sustained attraction to these areas of law, I think that those factors are connected to my enduring recognition of the fact that the standards of human life are so intertwined with, and could be materially affected by aspects of family law, immigration law and the law of succession.These legal rules and principles play a major role in the quality of human life and existence with which we are all very much concerned. It is a personal situation of major responsibility to be put into a position where the practice of your profession can influence the standards of life and lifestyle of many others.It is extremely satisfying to discharge that duty of responsibility to the satisfaction of the clients. These are the thoughts that come to mind whenever I am asked to explain the reasons why I have been [and still is] attracted to the Law of Wills, Trusts and Probate, Immigration and Family Law.Interviewer: What does being Solicitor of the Year mean to you and your future progressions in the legal sector? Are there any other goals you aspire to achieve?Savita: I am content to explain what being Solicitor of the Year means to me, but I cannot be sure, though I shall attempt to predict, how the award will bear upon my progression in the legal sector over the next year.Firstly, I am obliged and sincerely thankful to every individual who has contributed in any manner at all to my achievement, and my firm’s achievement of this award. It is a privilege of superlatives to think that I have been granted this award, let alone to hold it. Instincts dictate that I ask myself the question: what really have you done or you and your firm have been doing to even be considered for this title, let alone achieve it? My staff and I simply do the best we can by applying standard principles of human behaviour, courtesy and professionalism which I dare say would have contributed to the votes received.I am proud to the maximum to be granted the title “Lawyer of the Year” as I am proud to serve this noble profession. With regards to what it means in respect of progression within the legal sector, I think that on the grounds of natural expectations, SJS Solicitors may experience an increased level of client activity, and probably attract a more varied range of clientele likely to be involved in more complex areas of the law in which the firm is involved.The firm is likely to be exposed to a relatively wider audience publicly and it will experience an element of increased professional traffic. All of these expectations would be divinely welcome by SJS Solicitors.The other goals that come readily to mind is the continuation with, and delivery of high levels of professional standards and providing quality legal services to the public, in the absence of which neither my firm nor I, would be deserving of these awards.
