â PSCThe Private Sector Commission is concerned that President Bharrat Jagdeo before demitting Office in 2011, issued radio licences and frequencies outside of the Broadcasting Act and was unfair in the distribution process.This assertion was made by PSCâs Executive Member, Kit Nascimento during a brief interview with this publication last week at the Georgetown Club, where the body held a press conference.PSCâs Executive Member, Kit NascimentoâThose licences were issued outside the current law; they were issued by the President at the time under the Wireless and Telegraphy Act and its regulations which did not provide for public hearing and provided very few criteria in which to assign themâ, Nascimento said.According to Nascimento, Government has publicly assured the PSC that those licences issued are under review by members of the Broadcasting Authority that were only appointed last year under President Donald Ramotar.But that does not necessarily satisfy the PSC, which believes that all the licences issued should satisfy the criteria of the Broadcasting Act, which is a competitive application as outlined in the Act, he added.Less than a week before Jagdeo left office he had announced 10 new radio licensees. He was reported as saying that the licences were granted from 55 applications that had been on file.The method of selection was never disclosed.Jagdeoâs close associate, Dr. Ranjisinghi âBobbyâ Ramroop, was awarded five radio channels; New Guyana Company Limited five and Telcor and Cultural Broadcasting Inc. another five.Telcorâs contact person is Omkar Lochan, who happens to be the Deputy Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment, a Ministry headed by Minister Robert Persaud.President Donald RamotarNew Guyana Company is the one that publishes the partyâs newspaper, Mirror, and whose contact person is PPPâs Member of Parliament (MP), Dharamkumar Seeraj.There has been widespread condemnation of the allocations of the licences by local media bodies, including the Guyana Press Association (GPA) and the Guyana Media Proprietors Association (GMPA).The issuance of two cable licenses to two of Jagdeoâs closest friends, Vishok Persaud and Brian Yong, emphasized the extent of control that was and still is being exercised over the national spectrum.According to Nascimento, Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Outlet, âwith regards to the distribution of licences and frequencies we would expect the law as it is to be wholly observed and any granting of licences and frequencies that are in conflict with that law should be regularizedâ.Nascimento said that the PSC does not endorse the Broadcasting Act as it is and is currently reviewing the Act. As such, his comments on the Act are not reflective of the PSCâs.He noted that for a long time Guyana did not have a Broadcasting Act and now that one exists the way in which it is written is questionable. In his opinion, the composition of the board does not reflect international best practices.He said that usually in democratic countries selection of the board reflects a wide cross section of the society as a whole. âIt is not usually left to the President only to appoint it, â Nascimento said.Former President Bharrat JagdeoThe Executive Member said that the Act as it is currently written gives undue influence and decision making power to the Minister responsible for Information who in this particular case is the President.âThe board could be overruled the way it is currently written by the Presidentâ¦How the members are appointed is questionable and the influence the Minister has in the Board itself⦠the ultimate decision making power rests with the Ministerâ, he stated.According to Chairman of PSC, Ronald Webster, the Commission only became aware of the distribution of the frequencies recently through statements by Prime Minister Samuel Hinds.He said that the PSC is not a huge organization and there are a number of other commitments and concerns which probably over arch this particular issue but the body is definitely looking at it. Webster said the PSC is still awaiting additional information.Dr. Ranjisinghi âBobbyâ Ramroop

The action was finally heard by Justice Jainarayan Singh Jr. who subsequently granted judgement.The court found that Trotzâs fundamental right was violated â that he was deprived of his property as guaranteed by Article 40 and Article 142 of the Constitution of Guyana. That right had been violated by the security forces.

Despite the untoward developments in the Global Financial Market, especially recent happenings in the U.S, there has been no direct or indirect impact on Guyana and Trinidad Mutual Fire Insurance Company Limited (GTM) but the situation will continue to be closely monitored as it develops.In fact, according to Chairman of the Board of Directors of GTM, Harold Davis, during his report to the companyâs 128th Annual General Meeting, the company achieved and surpassed its targets.The chairman told the AGM that for Fire Insurance, despite the challenges faced during the year under review, the company acquired new business amounting to $24.4B in sums insured with premium income of $131.6M.He added that after taking into account policies that were written off, the net increase in business amounted to $7.5B in sums insured and $30.6M in premium income.According to Davis, âThis shows that the company ended the year with business in force amounting to $162.6B in sums insured and premium income of $946.9M compared with $155.1B and $916.4M respectively at the end of the preceding financial year 2007.âThese figures represent increases of 4.8 per cent and 3.3 per cent in sums insured and premium income respectively.âHe noted also that in the area of claims, gross claims paid and provided for amounted to $385.8M compared to $320.9M for the preceding year and after taking into account recoveries from reinsurers of $91.4M, the net claims paid and provided for amounted to $294.4M compared to $280.4M for the financial year 2007.Davis also used the opportunity to lament the fact that over the years, on several occasions, the company has had to express concern at the tragic accidents occurring on the roadways.The chairman also lamented the fact that the implementation of traffic lights appeared to have created a new breed of driver, âthe one who impatiently overtakes on the inside and outside, creating a hazard to those law-abiding drivers who exercise patience.âHe said that there is also âthe type of driver who treats the amber light as though it is a green light to speed as fast as he can.âGiven that the company, according to Davies, has a stake in the safety of people using the roads, it has, in conjunction with the other companies in the industry, taken the initiative to impose restrictions on the drivers of minibuses and hire cars, âas experience has shown that the often high turn over of inexperienced drivers is a significant contributing factor to reckless and improper driving on the roadsâ¦We hope these measures will enhance the efforts being made by the authorities to curb traffic lawlessness.âHe noted that for the year under review, 2008 gross motor premiums amounted to $621.6M compared to $545M for the previous year and gross motor claims paid totalled $173.2M, compared to $171M the previous year.Davies added also that the accident and liability portfolio showed a decrease from $92.6M the previous year to $52.6M this year.He credited the decrease to a decision that was taken in late 2007 to hold on to the granting of performance, mobilization and bid bonds until such time as the contracts under which they are granted are reviewed.As it relates to cash profits for the company, Davies said that he was pleased to report that the company has once again performed very well with a declaration of cash profit return of 55 per cent of premiums received during the last triennium that has been made.He noted that the persons that possessed participating policies with the Company could look forward to receiving a cash return of premiums.âThe declaration for this year amounts to $60.7M after making allowance for expired timeâ¦Cheques payable to those entitled to cash profit returns this year have already been prepared and will be posted tomorrow (today).âThe Balance Sheet for GTM illustrated the companyâs total assets at $3.3B compared to $3.1B for the preceding year which represented an increase of 6.6 per cent, while Revenue over expenditure was $165.8M compared to $178.8M the previous year.Davies also reported that despite the fact that there was a smaller increase in investment income as compared to the previous year, the company saw it fit to declare a final dividend of 5.75 per cent on âScrip and Stockâ capital for the year.The chairman also noted that given the companyâs policy of seeking out ways in which it could enhance business practices as well as developing products to fit the needs of the ever-changing lives of our customers.âTo this end we have embarked upon projects and policies designed to ensure that the insuring public is fully aware of the GTM brand.âHe noted that in Guyana the company introduced the âPower Discount Card, â that offers policyholders a 10 per cent discount on fire and motor insurance, provided they have two or more types of insurance with the Company or the sister company GTM Life.âDavies also used the opportunity to announce that in the coming year, Cheap NFL Jerseys China, the company will begin to address the needs of niche markets.The opportunity that was held at the National Cultural Centre was modestly attended and saw Davies being re-elected as Chairman of the Board along with two other directors, peer Fraser and Lloyd Validum, all of whom were scheduled to retire but were still eligible for re-election.Several Bursary awards for the children of several policy holders as well as staff members who performed well at the recently concluded Grade Six assessment examination were handed out.Gifts and trophies as well as cash vouchers were presented to outstanding and long serving employees of the company.
