PPP Councillor of the Regional Democratic Council of Region Four, Kwame McCoy, has accused Regional Chairman Clement Corlette of being a ‘control freak.’ This accusation was made during a press conference held at Freedom House on Monday.The war between the two men began last week, after Corlette banned McCoy from speaking at meetings of the RDC until he apologises or withdraws two offensive comments he allegedly made against Corlette.However, McCoy has since denied making any offensive remarks against the Regional Chairman. He said that all he did was point out the fact that Corlette has committed an illegal act.According to McCoy, on March 6 last, the Region Four Chairman wrote a letter to a city bank requesting that the bank resuscitate an account.Corlette has since denied the allegation that he attempted to resuscitate the bank account, as all he did was inform the bank that the Regional Women’s Affairs Committee of Region Four wishes to resuscitate the account.Kaieteur News was able to get possession of the letter to the bank, signed by Mr. Corlette. The letter informed the bank that the current names of persons as signatories to the account were no longer valid, and named the new signatories to the account.Regional Chairman of Region Four, Clement CorletteAt the press conference on Monday, McCoy noted that this is an illegal act, since Corlette does not have the authority to resuscitate any bank account of the council.He explained that under the Financial Management and Accountability Act of 2003, under section 45, it clearly states that only the Minister of Finance has the responsibility to resuscitate any bank account.He added that the Finance Minister can delegate that responsibility to the head of a budgetary agency, and in this case it would be the Regional Executive Officer (REO). “So this is a clear violation of the laws. For Mr. Corlette to write to a bank to resuscitate an account shows not only an act, but a clear intent to act illegally, ” McCoy told reporters.McCoy explained that, due to the vigilance of the bank, where the officials are familiar with the financial regulations and procedures, they referred the letter to the REO, who did not have any knowledge of the letter until it was brought to his attention.“What is really interesting is not only that this was an illegal act, but this is someone who boasts of having knowledge and being very familiar with all the laws… 2801, 2802, FMAA, all the regulations, the public health ordinance, everything…He is extremely knowledgeable, and he usually makes his references to where he had some of his exposure in London. How then, in this particular matter, the Regional Chairman was not familiar with this particular part of the law that says you have no authority to establish, re-establish any bank account? And this is what is frightening, ” McCoy said.He added that, over the past few months, the RDC has been dealing with administrative matters, but he has noticed that the Region Four Chairman is trying to take general control and direction to the council.“What we find here is someone who is a control freak. He wants to have control of everything and to be involved in the administration of the region. He wants to ensure that, at the end of the day, Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic, he is dominating every aspect of the RDC, so much as to say for the first time in the history of Guyana that councillors must submit their names before speaking, and he will determine the questions to be asked, ” McCoy noted.He noted that he was never officially informed by Corlette that he would not be able to speak at any future meetings, but was only made aware of it through the media.Mr. McCoy assured that Corlette will not continue to have ‘his way, ’ as the PPP councillors will continue to ensure that they defend the interest of the people in Region Four.McCoy claims that the continued dictatorial behaviour and attitude of Corlette is coming into conflict with many councilors, including some on the PNC side, who from time to time comment on his deliberate attempt to suppress, dominate and control every single aspect of not only the RDC statutory meeting, but also the region as a whole.“Even in instances where there are issues relating to the administration of the region, we see the Regional Chairman becoming very involved in a way that brings on great suspicion. He’s a political directorate of the region. He is expected to guide the region and the Regional Democratic Council along the line of quality-oriented issues. Whenever these issues are being discussed at the level of the RDC, it must take into consideration the policies and objectives of Central Government.”McCoy noted that it is not his place to say so, but it is now up to the Ministers of Local Government and Finance to do their part in dealing with the issue.(Fareeza Haniff)

Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, has responded to an article that quotes Member of ParliamentAttorney General, Anil Nandlallfor the Alliance for Change, Khemraj Ramjattan, as calling on the Attorney General to prosecute an inefficient consultant on the Amaila Falls road project.We publish his response.I wish to respond to the front page headline of Kaieteur News, Tuesday edition, March 20, 2012 viz:Amaila Falls $15.4M road project…Clear evidence of inefficiency exists “…AG must prosecute or face no-confidence motion” – Ramjattan and to the Article in relation thereto published on page 6, and continued on page 17, of that edition of the Kaieteur News.I set out hereunder my response.(1)         ;  It is not the function of the Attorney General to prosecute anyone or entity; that is the exclusive function of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Indeed, the Constitution clearly provides that in the discharge of the functions of that office, the Director of Public Prosecutions cannot be the subject of anyone’s direction or control.  The Attorney General, therefore, cannot direct the Director of Public Prosecutions which matters to prosecute.(2)         ;  Even if the Attorney General is empowered to prosecute, Mr. Ramjattan is requesting that I prosecute, because according to him there is “clear evidence of inefficiency”.  “Inefficiency” is not an offence for which one can be prosecuted under the laws of Guyana.  One would expect that as an experienced legal practitioner, Mr. Ramjattan ought to have, at least, a fleeting acquaintance with these rudimentary legal principles.  It is patently obvious that this is not the case.(3)         ;  I observe that Mr. Ramjattan in his tirade, omits to inform Kaieteur News that Mrs. Cathy Hughes, an executive member of the Alliance for Change and a Member of Parliament for the Alliance for Change, is (or at least was), the Public Relations Officer of Synergy Holdings Inc.  I hope that Mrs. Hughes will also be the subject of Mr. Ramjattan’s No Confidence Motion.(4)         ;  If any inquiry or proper inquiry was made by Mr. Ramjattan, he would have found that when Synergy Holdings Inc. instituted proceedings against the State and obtained certain Conservatory Orders which prevented the State from taking into possession certain assets used by Synergy Holdings Inc. on the project, it was the Attorney General, who appeared in person and successfully   presented legal submissions which resulted in the discharge of those Conservatory Orders.(5)         ;  A press release was made by the Office of the Attorney General in relation to this issue and sent to every media house in Guyana.  Unfortunately, it did not find expression in the Kaieteur News, although when the Orders were granted, the story was carried over several days as a front page feature in the Kaieteur News.(6)         ;  Additionally, a claim has been filed by the Attorney General against Synergy Holdings Inc. on the 9th day of March, 2012, in which the Attorney General is claiming, inter alia, damages in excess of $1, 000, 000 (one million dollars) as general damages for breach of contract, and special damages in the sum of US$3, 880, 029.80. These proceedings are pending in the Commercial Division of the High Court.(7)         ;  I feel obliged to comment upon what I consider to be the real motive of Mr. Ramjattan’s constant criticisms of me.  He has, without any lawful basis or any reasonable grounds, called for my resignation in relation to the role I played in dismantling the persons who unlawfully presided over the administration of cricket in Guyana.  He is again, without any lawful basis or reasonable grounds, Dale Murphy Braves Throwback Jersey, calling for my resignation.
