Aircraft seizure proposal an Intâl measure of collecting feesâOgle AirportTwo days after angry aircraft operators formed their own association following the release of a âdraconianâ document by Ogle Airport management that could potentially threaten their livelihood, Chairman of Ogle Airport Inc. (OAI) Michael Correia Jr. has debunked the associationâs claims.Chairman of the Ogle Airport Incorporated Michael Correia, with Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Anthony Meckdeci.Correia noted that not only are the measures contained in the document in place internationally, but that the document is only in the consideration phase. He also accused the association of peddling half-truths and noted that the document could not even be approved without Guyanaâs Civil Aviation Authorityâs (GCAA) approval.The new association, the National Air Transport Association (NATA) was formed on Wednesday by nine of the ten local aircraft operators at the airport. Vice President of NATA Capt. Gerry Gouveia had stated that the last straw came with the document, which proposed the seizure of aircraft and properties belonging to local operators should they default on their debts.During a press conference at the Ogle Airport yesterday, Correia told reporters that the Draft Agreement was modeled on the standard terms and conditions governing operators at the London City Airport, United Kingdom and in fact, was in effect around the world.âThe provisions in the London City Airport Agreement, with regards to payment of fees and the airportâs lien on operators, liabilities of operators and airport, aircraft and equipment, are virtually identical with those proposed (in the draft agreement).âHe further noted that even if a revised document is approved, the agreement cannot be implemented without the approval of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). It must also go through the mandated process. Correia blasted Gouveia for focusing on the Airport Operatorsâ Agreement that was just in the consideration stage.âGouveia has proven that (he is) a master of half truths and deliberate deception, â Correia stated. âGouveia, Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale, with the full support of Annette Arjoon-Martins deliberately set out to misrepresent the process through which the draft agreement was prepared and presented to the Board for consideration.âThe hangars and aircraft at the Ogle airport.Correia noted that the Airport was âlegally advisedâ of the importance in having such an agreement between the airport and any aircraft operator, setting out the terms and conditions of using the airport. Referring to the minutes of that Board meeting, Correia observed that it was suggested that Government should legislate an Act governing the private airport instead of going forward with the agreement.He also noted that the airport has been losing money for years as operators often owe money and the proposal just examines a way of collecting their fees.âGouveia would have the country believe that Ogle Airportâs management attempted to force this agreement down the throats of the operators, when exactly the opposite occurred.â This proposal is still to be ratified by all parties involved.Asked what similarities could be drawn from juxtaposing the London City Airport with Ogle International Airport, Chief Executive Officer of OAI Tony Meckdeci noted that both were down town airports, similar in size relative to their countryâs size and they were both subject to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations.During the NATA press conference, which was held at the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) office on Waterloo Street, the members forming NATA were announced to be Air Services Limited, Roraima Airways, Hinterland Aviation, Oxford Aviation, Wings Aviation, Fenix Aviation, Domestic Airways, Hopkinson Mining Aviation and Jags Aviation. The only abstaining operator was Trans Guyana Airways.The operating agreement, seen by Kaieteur News, had indicated that if fees, charges, costs or other liabilities for which a lien (possession of debtorâs property) is exercised remain outstanding, the OAI may deliver by hand to the operator a notice demanding payment within 14 days, to the registered owner of the aircraft at his address.âIn the event that payment remains outstanding thereafter, OAI may, at its entire discretion, sell, dispose of, remove or destroy such aircraft or equipment, â the document had also read.It had added that a lien shall not be lost by reason of the aircraft departing from the Airport but shall continue to be exercisable at any time when the aircraft or any other aircraft or other equipment owned by the Operator has returned to the Airport after having left it for as long as any of the said fees, charges, costs or other liabilities, whether incurred before or after such departure, remain unpaid.

â   Poor communication cited Poor communication and a limited number of ranks may be some of the reasons why persons, who are wanted by the police for various crimes, Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale, including murder, are roaming the streets freely.This is according to the Commissioner of Police, Seelall Persaud.There have been several questions as to whether the people are doing enough to arrest wanted persons.Responding to this question, the Commissioner said that there are a number of things which have been preventing the police from identifying and picking up wanted men.He listed communication as the main reason followed by the number of ranks needed to develop profiles of these wanted men.âWe have 3600 ranks deployed and there is a communication issue. We know that someone is wanted at one police station but the extent to which the information is shared is a problem, â Persaud explained.He went on to say that dedicated work was supposed to have been done to develop profiles that will help those who are actually making the arrest but, âThe number of persons that we can deploy to do that at this time has to do with our ability to communicate, so it gets down to that patrol man down on the ground.âWithin the past couple of months, a number of wanted persons have been arrested by the police in some of the busy streets of Georgetown.Shawn FordyceJermaine SimonCommissioner of Police, Seelall PersaudSome of them have been on the Forceâs wanted list for as long as five years. However, those same persons were right under the policeâs nose daily but were not recognized for a very long time.Only last month, 26-year-old Seon Anthony Edwards of Diamond, East Bank Demerara, was arrested in the vicinity of Regent and Hinck Streets, where he was selling bottled water.Edwards was wanted by police for the 2010 murder of Rawle Peters, called âDumb Boy.âPeters and Edwards had an argument over $300, 000 during which the victim was chopped to death.Edwards was only arrested when a passenger in a mini bus pointed out to a cop that the âwater vendorâ is a murderer. Had that passenger not recognized Edwards then he would have continued selling on the streets.Also, in October last, Shawn Fordyce, a man who was wanted for carrying out a brutal cutlass attack on his wife and three daughters back in 2013, was arrested in the same house at âBâ Field Sophia where he carried out the attack.Prior to his arrest, Fordyce had been selling newspapers in some of the busy streets in Georgetown including Mandela Avenue.Now, this is someone whose photograph was once pasted on some of the walls of some police stations but yet he went on with his life without being noticed.In November last, 24-year-old Jermaine Simon called âLapsyâ of Lot 41 Norton Street Bagotstown, EBD, was shot dead, allegedly by a member of a rival gang, Anthony Trim, who is still on the run.Simon was wanted by the police for killing Ryan Sooklall in March 2015 at Providence, EBD.According to reports, he and Sooklall had a falling out that saw Sooklall and his gang shooting up Jermaine Simonâs home.The following day, the 24-year-old Simon retaliated by walking up to Sooklall and pumping bullets into him.A wanted bulletin was subsequently issued for him but the police were unable to make an arrest.Members of the public however believed that the police are not doing enough to arrest wanted persons since they claimed, Jermaine Simon was roaming Bagotstown freely.He had been operating a shop in that community.As the Guyana Police Force continues to move forward in their crime fighting strategy, the Commissioner said that this year, not only will ranks know the names of those wanted but they will know exactly what he/she looks like. Kaieteur News understands that this will be done via the setting up of a database.Knowing the names of criminals is not enough, but having an idea of what the person looks like will help a lot.Recalling an incident in May 2014 when four prisoners escaped from the Georgetown Magistratesâ Court by ripping the grill work and mesh that covered the window at the back of the building, the police had no idea who they were looking for.Two reporters from this media house had to send a photograph of the escapees to the police via social media.This newspaper was told that there are currently 105 to 120 persons on the wanted list. These include persons who are wanted for robberies under arms, rape and murders among other crimes.

â¦as manufacturers start cutting jobs as financial crisis bites Manufactures in Guyana have begun cutting jobs, given the drop in overseas demand for their products.President of the Guyana Manufacturers and Services Association (GMSA), Ramesh Dookhoo, told Kaieteur News that the sectors particularly hit by the global economic slowdown are the garment manufacturing and value-added wood sectors. He said some 150 workers have already been laid off, and another 50 jobs are immediately threatened.Dookhoo explained that the drying up of export orders from Europe and North America is the main reason for the layoffs in these sectors, since a drop in demands means less production.He declined to name specific businesses which are feeling the squeeze, China NFL Jerseys, but he said these are affected because 90 percent of their products are produced for the export market.There is little that exporters can do when traditional markets are lost, but the Association this week suggested that businesses should seek alternative markets, while acknowledging that this is in itself difficult and time consuming.According to the GMSA, there can be little doubt that exporters would see considerable shortfalls in earnings and the domino effect of downsizing, layoffs and production contractions.Dookhoo reiterated that the areas where jobs may have to be cut need the fullest attention of the government, the banking community and workersâ representatives.This week the GMSA said that the global financial meltdown and its adverse effects on the local economy would require some tolerance on the part of financiers.The Association is insisting that despite the overall strength of the financial sector there are some companies that are seriously affected by the crisis and would experience considerable difficulty in such areas as medical coverage for their employees and workersâ pension rights, unless strong government guarantees are forthcoming.The GMSA has said that while Guyana has not been affected to the level of severity, as is the case in some other countries, âwe nevertheless have to be sensitive to the realities on the ground and to take all necessary precautionary measures in the interest of national economic viability.âThe Association has called on its members to cut down on overhead expenses since the ultimate goal should be to get products and services on a continuous basis to the consumer, at the cheapest possible price and highest quality, while maintaining reasonable margins of profitability.The GMSA also wants the local banking system to be more appreciative of the plight of these companies and to demonstrate greater tolerance and understanding in facilitating credit, since many companies may seek better refinancing arrangements to keep their businesses afloat.

Quick response by police on the East Coast of Demerara resulted in the capture of two sea bandits and the recovery of an outboard engine that was stolen mere minutes earlier.The men were nabbed on the Ogle Foreshore, shortly after robbing a fishing crew at LBI, about five miles away.According reports reaching this newspaper indicated that around 04:30 hours on Saturday Usman Khan, of Mon Repos, China Jerseys, East Coast Demerara, together with his three member crew were at the LBI Foreshore preparing to go to sea when the suspects armed with a gun and a cutlass came up with a boat propelled by wind.The two men held up the crew and ordered them to transfer their two 48hp Yamaha outboard engines and ration into their boat before sailing away in a western direction.The matter was reported to the police and ranks from the Sparendaam Police Station responded in time and arrested the bandits at the Ogle Foreshore minus one of the engines.According to a source, the bandits upon seeing the police waiting for them on the foreshore, made an about turn and headed back out to sea.They reportedly dumped one of the stolen engines overboard along with the gun they used to carry out the robbery.Investigators were up to last night trying to locate the other stolen engine and they are expected to further interrogate the suspects.
