The trial of three former Guyana Defence Force Coast Guard ranks, charged with the murder of a young Bartica gold dealer, continued yesterday at the Suddie High Court in Essequibo before Justice Franklyn Holder.The trial which began last week is now engaged in a second voir dire (trial within a trial) to determine the admissibility of caution statements allegedly made by the number two accused, Delon Gordon.The three accused, Sherwin Harte, the number one accused; Delon Gordon, number two and Deon Greenidge are charged with the August 2009 murder of Dweive Kant Ramdass which took place at Caiman Hole, East Bank, Essequibo.The three accused are being represented by Attorney at Law Peter Hugh.The two Privates and a Lance Corporal were manning the Coast Guard RC 12 motor boat in the Essequibo River, when they allegedly confronted Ramdass in a boat at the Parika Stelling.The soldiers allegedly forced him into their boat and took him to another location in the river where they relieved him of $17M in cash which he was carrying in a box to Bartica for his employer, who operated a gold and diamond business in the city.The prosecution is trying to prove that the three soldiers strangled Ramdass, took the money he was carrying and threw his body overboard in the vicinity of Bonasika Creek.They will argue that after murdering Ramdass, the three soldiers returned to the Parika Stelling, Ryan Ramczyk Saints Jersey, where one of their female accomplices was waiting for them.She is the sister of one of the officers and was reportedly given $5.7M in cash to hold.According to reports, another portion of the money was recovered by the police during a roadblock exercise.They were committed to stand trial in the High Court in 2011, by Magistrate Nyasha Williams-Hatmin following an 18-month Preliminary Inquiry at the Vreed en Hoop Magistrate’s Court.Attorney at law Khemraj Ramjattan, who was assigned to the matter as special prosecutor, had led a total of 14 witnesses to give evidence.The witnesses included persons who saw when the Coast Guard ranks took Ramdass out of the boat, and when they returned to the boat without him, but with a canister that he was carrying.

Guyana needs to obtain results for the initiatives taken to arrest money laundering and other financial crimes, said President Donald Ramotar, during his address to participants of the opening ceremony of the Financial Crimes Stakeholders Meeting, yesterday.The venue was the Grand Coastal Hotel, Le Ressouvenir, East Coast Demerara.President Donald RamotarHe said that although his administration appreciates the contribution of a robustly functioning anti-money laundering action, there are still areas of deficiencies that need to be addressed.He said that several evaluations have shown the extent to which Guyana has to go, to effectively transform its commitment to achieving results.And to do so, Ramotar said that Guyana in consultation with stakeholders has identified investigation and legislation as the two major areas for focus.According to Ramotar, in discussions with domestic security professionals, the government has adopted a series of actions destined to ramp up the national capacity to investigate money laundering and other financial crimes.However, Adoree Jackson Womens Jersey, there is very little to show for the government’s boasts.According to President Ramotar, the administration is awaiting the completion of matters regarding the 2013 national budget before tabling further legislation to deal with the issue of financial crimes.He welcomed the international support that Guyana has been getting, echoing sentiments made by United States of America Ambassador Brent Hardt, that “only by working in partnership and acting strategically to counter cross border criminal threats can we effectively target the common denominator, the leverage point that allows us to strike at the heart of all criminal organizations and illicit activities…money!”According to Ambassador Hardt, money laundering and other financial crimes are a serious global threat. He told the meeting that jurisdictions flooded with illicit funds are vulnerable to the breakdown of the rule of law, the corruption of public officials and destabilization of their economies.He pointed to the development of new technologies that have exacerbated the challenges faced by the financial, law enforcement, supervisory, legal and intelligence communities.“As a result, no economy is immune from the threat of financial criminal activity, and no nation can combat this threat alone, ” Hardt said.The Ambassador referred to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), which has posited that criminals typically hide illicit proceeds in legal structures such as shell companies or foundations. These companies often undercut and undermine legitimate entities, making it harder for legitimate business to survive and prosper.The ambassador noted that the Caribbean is a primary destination for illicit funds and shell companies. “In fact, the United Nations reports that the Caribbean is the “most important destination for the laundering of cocaine-related income.”“Criminal enterprises are motivated by financial gain. To successfully disrupt narco-trafficking and other criminal enterprises and prosecute perpetrators, an effective anti-money laundering/financial crimes regime is essential.“Likewise, terrorist organizations find it much more difficult to operate if they can’t move their money. By disabling the capacity of criminal and terrorist organizations to launder the proceeds of crime and access their ill-gotten gains, we can ensure that crime doesn’t pay, ” the Ambassador stated.According to Ambassador Hardt, in recent years, American experts alone have shared their experience and knowledge with over 100 countries. It is hoped that these collective efforts will, over time, build capacity in jurisdictions where it is lacking.“Our deliberations will be further enriched by representatives from the United Kingdom’s Caribbean Criminal Assets Recovery Program (CCARP). CCARP is likewise actively engaged with the Government of Guyana in boosting capacity to conduct financial crimes investigations. It is currently developing its action plan with the Government and providing funds and expertise to draft legislative amendments that will bring Guyana into compliance with Caribbean Financial Action Task Force (CFATF) standards.The Government of Canada will also be providing assistance to Guyana’s Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) under its Deployment for Democratic Development (DDD) Program, ” the US Ambassador revealed.

Nationally, preparations are being made for Guyana to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary as an independent nation during May, 2016. With the anticipated colossal influx of foreigners to our land to participate in the various events, homeowners too can develop their existing facilities to offer accommodation to them.The implementation of the requirements of the National Standard for Bed and Breakfast facilities can assist local homeowners to benefit from this great business opportunity.The Code of Practice for Bed and Breakfast facilities was approved as a national standard by the National Standards Council in 2010 after it was developed by the Guyana National Bureau of Standards (GNBS) Technical Committee – Tourism.This standard, which specifies the minimum requirements for bed and breakfast facilities operating in Guyana, was formulated to improve the quality of services offered by local providers of bed and breakfast facilities. This Code of Practice can be utilized by all stakeholders in the Tourism sector and specifically by local bed and breakfast providers and potential investors in this category, Tedric Thompson Youth Jersey, thereby promoting standardization for this particular service.The standard provides minimum requirements for three categories of facilities, A, B and C category. For bread and breakfast facilities to be considered as Category A, they must include self-contained double or single bedroom accommodation with an air conditioned unit, television and other basic amenities including telephone, access to a mini refrigerator and comfortable functioning furniture, in a quiet and attractive setting.In addition, the standard states that private access to rooms is preferable and hot water, hot and cold shower, fresh clean linens and breakfast must be provided. Lunch, dinner or any other meals could be arranged on request at an additional cost.Requirements for facilities falling under Categories B and C are similar to Category A with a few exclusions in descending order.The Code of Practice also addresses minimum requirements for rooms, which include sufficient size for freedom of movement, privacy, requirements for beds and sheet coverings and other furniture requirements. Electrical installation, fire safety, hygiene and pest control are also addressed by the standard.The Guyana Tourism Authority (GTA) provides guidance and monitoring of facilities endeavouring to meet the requirements outlined in this Code of Practice.  The Authority is working to promote facilities, which are registered and inspected according to the requirements of the Code of Practice.The quest to fulfill the growing need to provide quality service and comfortable accommodation to all categories of tourists and other visitors to our country would be tested during the upcoming national celebrations.Acquiring a copy of this standard and implementing the requirements therein, would certainly aid entrepreneurs and operators in the tourism industry particularly, providers of bed and breakfast facilities to offer a level of services that can satisfy the accommodation needs of visitors.Copies are available upon request from the Technical Standards Information Unit of the GNBS.For further information on this subject, contact the GNBS on telephone numbers: 219-0065 or 219-0064.
