A 19-year-old vendor was yesterday remanded to prison by Magistrate Hazel Octive-Hamilton after he pleaded not guilty to a charge of unlawfully wounding a police rank.The accused, Kevin Rodney, Nike Vapormax Plus Sunset, of 6A Water Street Georgetown, is alleged to have committed the act on August 23 at the Brickdam Police Station.The court was told that on the day in question, Rodney, an inmate at the Brickdam lock-ups, unlawfully wounded Neil Abrahams, a peace officer acting in execution of his duty.  Rodney was represented by Attorney At Law Paul Fung–A–Fat, who requested that his client be given pre-trial liberty.However, Prosecutor Kerry Bostwick opposed the bail submission on the grounds that the accused was incarcerated at the Brickdam lock-ups pending an investigation for robbery under arms when he unlawfully wounded the officer.The magistrate refused bail and Rodney was ordered to return to court on October 2.

EAST CANEFIELD, CANJE – One of the suspects involved in the two armed robberies in East Canje last Friday has been identified as Raymond Fraser. The known bandit has no fixed place of abode and is wanted by police. A wanted bulletin was put out for his arrest after police recovered a cache of arms and ammunition on September 21st in East Canje.Commander of Division ‘B’, Assistant Commissioner Steve Merai said his detectives know who they are looking for but it is only a matter of time before the men are caught. It is believed that Fraser has a single barrel shotgun, and along with his accomplices, is wreaking havoc in the area.About 00:30 hours last Friday, three masked and armed men broke into the home of 40-year old Nanwate Ganyah at Lot 897 East Canefield New Area in East Canje. The woman said the intruders were carrying a cutlass and a shotgun, and were clad in dark clothing.She and her two daughters 19-year old Devanie Ganyah and Varsha Ganyah, 14, were terrorized and robbed of jewellery, which was stored in bag under a bed and an undisclosed sum of money. As the bandits fled the scene, they fired a shot on the road but no one sustained any injuries. Police subsequently recovered a 12 gauge spent shell from the scene.Not long after another family, a short distance away, suffered a similar fate. At about 02:30 hours at 122 Girls’ Club Fourth Cross Street, East Canefield, a 64-year old pensioner Jagnarine Mangru was attacked by three men fitting the same description and modus operandi.Jagnarine Mangru and his wife 60-year old Welina Mangru occupy the lower flat of the wooden house. Their son Sakesh Jagnarine a 39-year old cane cutter, his wife 28-year old Sunita Hemraj  their three children – eight-year old Davindra Jagnarine, five-year old Dhanraj Jagnarine and 18-month Nandanie Jagnarine reside above.In that incident a gunshot rang out hitting a fridge and gas cooker as the robbers forced their way into the home. Jagnarine Mangru was gun butted and suffered a wound to the head. His son Sakesh Jagnarine a 39-year old cane cutter was relieved of $35, 000, two gold chains, three gold rings and two gold bangles. Sakesh’s wife 28-year old Sunita Hemraj was said to be robbed of a quantity of gold jewellery.Raymond Fraser is assumed to be part of a gang which is based in the East Canje area but it also operates in other localities such as Black Bush Polder using the Canje River.The gang was headed by 40-year old David McPherson called ‘Colonel’ of Betsy Ground, East Canje who was gunned down in June after an exchange of bullets with police ranks. This gang may also be working in tandem with another group from the Liverpool/Alness area and probably have some connection to the Wellington Park reign of terror in May this year.In that incident 47-year old Arjune Gobin, a security guard attached to Nand Persaud and Company Limited of Number Thirty-six Village on the Corentyne, was shot and killed by bandits in what was intended to be an early morning robbery at the home of a businessman Surendra Ganesh of Wellington Park on the Corentyne.On September 21st a police patrol operating in the Adelphi area had responded to a report of assault and was returning to their normal routine about 22:20 hours when they observed two known law-breakers walking along the roadway in a suspicious manner. The team attempted to question them and they fled. The patrol gave pursuit and captured one of them – 25-year old Timothy Sampson of Adelphi New Scheme.Moments later police ranks searched the black duffel bag he was carrying and two AK 47 assault rifles, an UZi semi-automatic sub-machine gun and a 12-gauge pump action shotgun with three matching rounds of ammunition were found. He was detained and charged.His male companion, later identified as Raymond Fraser had escaped. Fraser was said to be carrying another bag which is suspected to have more arms and ammunition. Officials of the Guyana Defence Force identified the two AK 47 rifles as stolen from their weaponry a few years ago.Back to the robberies in East Canje, Commander Merai said that they are working on a strategy which he is optimistic would bear fruit and the men would be brought to justice. So far no charges have yet been laid against the perpetrators of the East Canje armed robberies. Several persons were detained, Cheap Nike Air Max 90 Mens Trainers, questioned and released; however, two are still in custody.According to him, there has not been an increase in crime in Division ‘B’. Statistics show that the rate remains 50 percent below that of 2009.Yesterday, one of the victims, Jagnarine Mangru, said police took statements from members of his family and never returned to the scene. He said the fact that he cannot identify his attackers makes it more difficult for him.

The 2007 Auditor General’s report that was recently handed over to the Speaker of the National Assembly will be made available to the public today.At the time of the handing over the Auditor General (ag), Deodat Sharma had told media operatives that the problems that have been highlighted in previous Auditor General’s reports have reoccurred in the latest one.According to Sharma, the Contingency Fund is still being abused; there are still overpayments on contracts, missing vouchers, “old bank accounts not being closed as yet, especially those big overdrafts that continue.”He said that the proceeds from the lotto fund are still not paid into contingency fund, and those funds are still being abused.The report was delayed this year because of the staff constraints at the Audit Office. However, Mr Sharma promised to present the 2008 report by December. He also stated that the first value for money audit would be handed over come next month.Acting Auditor General Deodat Sharma (right) hands over the 2007 report to the Speaker of the National AssemblyThe 2006 report was used by the opposition to accuse the government of massive corruption, adding that the report was evidence of such corruption. The Auditor General’s Report for 2006 highlighted breaches of the Procurement Act, as well as the Fiscal Management and Accountability Act.The Opposition parties have long been calling for the Audit Office to be outfitted with its full staff complement. They have also been calling for the appointment of Deodat Sharma to the substantive post of Auditor General, rather than to have him remain in an acting capacity.According to the 2006 report presented yesterday, to the Auditor General, the Contingency Fund is continuously abused, with amounts drawn from the fund being utilised to meet expenditure that did not meet the eligibility criteria as defined in the Act.“According to the Statement, amounts totalling $3.945 billion were drawn from the fund by way of 138 advances. As at 31 December 2006, forty-nine of these advances, totalling $1.721 billion, remained outstanding.”In relation to the Customs and Trade Administration, the Auditor General noted that 17 Permits for Immediate Delivery (PID), with a total value of $2.832 billion, had not yet been perfected at the time of the audit in January 2007.Incoming vessels at ports in Guyana numbered 1, 089 for 2006. However, completed ships’ files in respect of 243 ships were not submitted to the Quality Review Section, and as such were not made available for audit examination.It was also noted in the report, that several Ministries and departments recorded overstatements on their appropriation accounts, and the unspent amounts have not been refunded.“Subvention agencies are not returning the unspent portions of amounts paid over to them for specific expenditure.”The Auditor General also stated in his report what he called the overpayment of contracts. “Several Ministries and regions have not recovered amounts overpaid on various contracts in prior periods. In addition, some of these Ministries and regions, such as Education, Amerindian Affairs, Regions Two, Three, Six, Seven and Ten, continued to have overpayments on various contracts during 2006.“One such example was recorded under the Ministry of Education, where $10.982M was overpaid on eleven projects which were mainly for the rehabilitation and extension to schools.”But Finance Minister Ashni Singh, in an interview with this newspaper, said that it was regrettable that in some instances, the Auditor General’s Report did not in every case reflect the explanations that would have been proffered by the various Government ministries and departments. The Auditor General is required by law to have included in the report explanations for issues that raised an eyebrow.“I would say that, Nike Epic React Flyknit For Sale, in the overwhelming majority of instances, the issues that have been reported by the Auditor General have explanations that in many cases would have been offered by the respective Government Ministries and departments.”

“We are not going to be tolerating any abuse of our teachers, ” said Minister of Education Priya Manickchand as she addressed a gathering of media operatives at the first in a series of monthly press conferences. The forum, which was venued at the National Centre for Resource Development (NCERD), saw the Minister highlighting a number of developments within the Ministry and responding to questions.Violence in the school system was one such question directed to the Minister who, while not divulging too many details, disclosed that addressing such issues is high on her Ministry’s agenda. However she noted that at a follow up forum efforts will be made to offer more information on the plans to combat violence. “We hope to be able to give you our whole menu of measures. It is not just going to be violence perpetuated against teachers but we are looking at a whole menu of things including what we do with parents who abuse teachers in their capacities as teachers on school premises and so on.”According to Manickchand, the Ministry is also hoping to have in place a guideline of how to deal with students involved in violence even as moves are made to identify the various grades of abusive or delinquent behaviour exhibited by students. “So we are going to announce that to the nation in a more holistic way, ” asserted the Minister as she assured that there is no way that the Ministry will be allowing the abuse of its teachers.And there is available support for the Government to address the issue of violence in the school system.Speaking to this publication during an exclusive interview, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) of Guyana and Suriname Representative, Dr Suleiman Braimoh, said that the body is keen on directing support to Government to address issues of violence as it relates to children and their existence.He concurred that the incidence of violence, particularly among youths in the school system, has taken on unprecedented proportions, and there is an urgent need for this state of affairs to be addressed.However, Bradley Chubb Jersey, he cautioned that the situation of gang violence for instance in schools is certainly not one that exists in isolation. According to him it is part of a whole context of violence in general which encompasses domestic violence, violence in the streets and other types of prevailing forms of violence in the society.UNICEF, according to him, operates with the interest of children in mind moreover, “we are carrying out assessments to really develop stronger understanding of the whole issue to be able to support the Government.”He disclosed that UNICEF has been working with the Ministry of Education even as he noted that “it is not just an education thing; we are working with the Ministry of Human Services too.”He explained that what has been happening in recent times “is that we are developing stronger and better understanding of the social origin or the whole social complex surrounding the origin of violence and based on that we are designing programmes to support the Government’s efforts.”
