…power company accuses him of electricity theftMoonieraj Singh, a resident of Diamond Housing scheme, is contending that his wife who is eight months pregnant, is having sleepless nights ever since she was reportedly terrorized by a two-man Guyana Power and Light (GPL) crew.According to Singh, two Fridays ago, about 13:30 hrs, two GPL workers “quietly” entered his yard without permission. He claimed that at the time, his wife and daughter were preparing meals in the kitchen.Singh said, “Me wife hear sounds coming from the yard and decided to go check it. She tell me that when she go to the door she see like somebody in the yard and she knees get weak, then she fall down. Me son and daughter go to help she up and put she fuh sit.  Then me son went outside only fuh see the two men ripping down the (tarpaulin) I get on me verandah to keep out the rain. When me son talk to dem, dem cuss he up.”The man said that the two men photographed all over his yard then left.Singh claimed that he subsequently had to take his wife to the hospital in the wake of the incident, she continues to be panting for breath and can’t sleep.Singh noted that he reported the matter and was asked to contact Kumar Sharma, Divisional Director Loss Reduction Department, who took the details of allegations against the crew and promised to return a call after investigation.“Li’l bit after, he call me back and say how ‘I thiefing light and de men tell he that dem didn’t cuss me up’ he aint say nothing to represent my discomfort.”GPL officials, Off White Vapormax Retail Price, when contacted, refuted the claims put forward by Singh. Loss reduction Field Service Manager, Loaknauth Singh, said that an investigation has been launched into the matter.He stated that it is indeed suspected that the consumer is illegally using electricity. He noted that considering what the man has in his home, his consumption is “really low.” The manager said that the crew claimed that they didn’t deface anything in the consumer’s compound.Further, the manager said that photographs were taken to prove that the consumer’s meter has been tampered with.Sharma said that the company intends to remove the meter from Singh’s verandah and put on the lamp post.  “We will see if his consumption will go up after that.”

One month after the search for the aircraft that went missing in the Mazaruni was ended, pilots believe that they have found the crash site.Yesterday, one of the more prominent domestic pilots in Guyana, Capt Gerry Gouveia, in a conversation with a former local pilot, Miles Williams, who currently resides in Florida, USA, spoke about a number of pilots examining the hundreds of photographs they took during the extensive search of the Mazaruni.They believe that, after scrutinizing these aerial photos of the area, College Jerseys, they have identified what is possibly the tail of the Beech King aircraft plane protruding from amongst some trees in the jungle.The aircraft was plotting potential mineral deposits at the time of the crash. It was reportedly near the escarpment in the Middle Mazaruni, and often flew over the escarpment to plot turns, since it was “flying lines.”One reason for the crash was that the pilot apparently was taken by surprise at the elevation of the escarpment, which borders the Middle and Upper Mazaruni. Capt Gouveia suggests that the pilot underestimated the steepness of the escarpment and was forced to climb faster than he actually could, and the aircraft stalled, then dived down into the dense vegetation.He noted that the aircraft might have plummeted vertically, nose first, hence the failute to create any significant clearance in the vegetation and so make the crash site easily visible.Although the locally-organised air and ground search was halted, Prometheus Resources Guyana Inc. continued flying, taking aerial pictures which were later posted online and scrutinized by a barrage of pilots.The sight of the possible tail section has prompted local pilots to fly into the coordinates where the tail is believed to have been spotted, to make visual contact. This could be done today, Capt Gouveia said.The Beech King Air N87V, chartered from Dynamic Aviation Group Inc by Terraques Ltd, disappeared on November 1 while conducting geographical surveys in the Mazaruni area.Missing and presumed dead are US pilot James Barker, First Officer Chris Paris, also from the US, and Canadian technician Patrick Murphy.When the search for the missing US aircraft was called off, Minister of Transport, Works and Communication, Robeson Benn, had expressed condolences to the men’s families and stated that the Government had done all that it could to locate the victims.“As difficult as it may seem, we have expended all the resources, the time and the effort that we could at this stage.There is nothing more that we can do, ” Benn told journalists during a press conference. “We aren’t in a position to recover them. We have no specific knowledge of their whereabouts.“That is distressing in itself, but I want to assure the public, the organisations concerned, and the families of the occupants of the aircraft that we have done everything that we could under the circumstances, and that our thoughts and hopes and best wishes are with them.”Minister Benn had disclosed that an investigation will be conducted into the circumstances surrounding the mishap.Following the announcement by Benn, spokesman for Prometheus International, Shazadh Khan, told Kaieteur News that the company was not abandoning the search.“We are going to cut ‘lines’ (trails) and search the survey area. We will continue for a month.Whatever we find, we will bring out.” Benn said that there were 200 hours of aerial search that covered some 28, 260 miles.The aircraft, with fuel for five and one half-hours, was scheduled to operate in the Chi Chi-Imbaimadai area for approximately four and one-half hours before returning to the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.

-Two held for questioningA 65-year-old remigrant was yesterday afternoon found murdered in his Peter’s Hall School Street, home East Bank Demerara.The body was discovered by his only son Rameshwar Mithu shortly after 14:00hrs.The man, Ishwar Mithu, who has a hearing defect, lived in the United States for over 35 years had only returned to Guyana about a year ago. Robbery appeared to have been the motive since a heavy duty washing machine; microwave, blender and television set were all missing.The thieves gained entry through the man’s kitchen window. The metal grill was cut and several louvre panes were removed.His son told Kaieteur News, Nike Roshe Run Women, that a neighbour called him shortly after 14:00hrs yesterday telling him she had not seen his father for the day.“His neighbour called me telling me that my father’s air condition was on all day and that she had not seen my father”.The man’s son said that he found it strange and immediately went to his father’s house which is a short distance from his workplace.Upon arrival at the house he noticed that several louvre windows were missing, the metal grill had been cut and the back door was open.Mithu said that he entered the house and noticed large muddy footprints. Fighting to hold back tears, the man said that he called out to his father but got no response.  When he went upstairs his worse fears were confirmed.His father was partly nude and a bed sheet was wrapped around his hands and a pair of the man’s sweat pants was tied around his foot.Mithu immediately shouted out for neighbours who quickly informed other relatives. They summoned the police.A cousin of the dead man opined that the killer must have been someone the man knew. The relative said that everyone knew the man had a hearing defect. It was further said that the killer probably did not realize that Mithu was at home when they broke into the house.“They had to think that he was not in the house and then when they saw him, they had no other alternative but to kill him, ” the relative opined.Other relatives who were present when this newspaper visited said that it was very strange that no one heard anything. All of the houses are nearby.One relative said that someone had to hear when all those things were being lifted out of the man’s house.This newspaper understands that this is the second brother who was murdered.The dead man’s son said that an older brother was shot and killed in 1979.Mithu leaves to mourn his three children, his parents and 10 brothers and sisters. Meanwhile this newspaper was reliably informed that two persons were taken into custody by the police.Sources have said that the two persons are husband and wife and are habitual drug users.The police are still continuing their investigations.Only a year ago Mithu’s neighbour businessman, Dewan Roshan, was shot during a robbery at his home. He died a few days later at the Georgetown Public Hospital without regaining consciousness.Roshan was shot just above the belly button when two bandits invaded his home and robbed him of some $80, 000 from his grocery shop. No one was arrested or charged for the murder.

The East Caribbean Business Forecast Report for the 2010 third quarter has placed Guyana as one of the few CARICOM countries to be in a favourable economic position for the third quarter of this year.According to the report, while all regional economies suffered to varying degrees during the downturn, clear signs are now being illustrated of which Caribbean countries are best-poised to outperform going forward.“In some cases, previously sound economies such as that of Trinidad and Tobago are now facing fundamental risks to their growth stories, while others, such as the Dominican Republic and Guyana, look set to capitalise from their geo-strategic strengths over the medium to long term.”It was pointed out, however, that despite such diverging economic stories, there are still some major socio-economic concerns that threaten the region as a whole.It was pointed out however that a severe drought in Guyana is threatening the optimistic 3.5 per cent real GDP (Gross Domestic Product) forecast for 2010.The report said that the key sugarcane and rice sectors appear to be the worst hit, but inflationary pressures from the supply-side shock may also start weighing on domestic economic activity over the coming months.“That said, our longer-term outlook for the country is boosted by improvements to its political risk profile under the administration of President Bharrat Jagdeo…Although significant structural issues continue to hurt the country’s political and economic outlook, strong support for the government’s economic reforms means that Guyana is well placed to capitalise on increasingly favourable external conditions, Nike Shox Clearance, in our view.”
