Former Attorney General Anil Nandlall says that President David Granger is now compelled to disband the Tribunal and rescind the suspension of Carvil Duncan from performing various constitutional duties, following the dismissal of criminal charges against him.In a statement, Nandlall said that the dismissal of the charge vindicates Duncan’s innocence. He said that the prosecution has failed to rebut the constitutionally guaranteed presumption of innocence which Duncan enjoys.Therefore, he said, in the eyes of the law, Duncan has committed no legal wrong.According to Nandlall, “It vindicates my contention from the inception that the Prime Minister and the President acted prematurely, Cheap NFL Jerseys China, precipitously, capriciously, arbitrarily and unconstitutionally when they activated a process to remove Mr. Duncan from office before the hearing and determination of the criminal charges. As it now turns out, they are attempting to remove from office, a high Constitutional Office holder who enjoys security of tenure of office and who has done no legal wrong that would be considered “misbehaviour” to warrant his removal from office.”He said that the Tribunal established by the President has now been proven to have embarked upon an unlawful and unconstitutional course of action.He added that the Tribunal has no legal jurisdiction whatsoever to proceed with its work, even if the Court Order prohibiting it from proceeding is discharged.“The Executive has wasted a lot of time, energy and financial resources in its indecent haste to remove Mr. Duncan from office. In the end, the Rule of Law and an independent Judiciary have prevailed”, Nandlall concluded.

The University of Guyana Turkeyen campus may be closer to normal operation since, according to reports reaching this newspaper, the asbestos tests have been completed and the results have revealed that the presence of asbestos in the university buildings are of a negligible percentage.However, reports are that the results are yet to be studied by the Ministry of Education, which is expected to host a press conference today to disclose the findings.The contracting firm, A & E Consultancy, had conducted air tests and subsequently fibre tests to determine whether the buildings were safe.This newspaper understands that in order to determine the safety level of the buildings, the fibres had to amount to 0.05 per cm3 which is the standard limit of asbestos in the atmosphere.Reports are that the consultancy firm has been able to deduce that the asbestos level in the university buildings is just below the recommended limit.But though the results suggest that things could be returning to some level of normalcy, reports are that subsequent tests may have to be carried out.According to a technical official on the university’s Asbestos Committee, while it is not definite that subsequent tests will be allowed, it is a standard procedure for verification tests to be conducted.The official additionally pointed out that the subsequent tests do not in any way mean that the contracting firm’s test results were not accurate, but noted that standard quality management tests should be just as compulsory as the initial tests.Meanwhile, staffers of the university are yet to receive word on whether the non-asbestos buildings on the campus will undergo air tests.Another member of the technical committee, Mr Melvin Sankies, related that up to yesterday there was no word as to whether the tests will in fact be done.It was relayed to this newspaper that there was an agreement at the level of the Ministry of Education and the University’s administration that there was need for the asbestos free buildings to be tested as well since the situation was deemed a health hazard.However, Mr Sankies, who is also a member of the Faculty of Technology, along with other faculty members had been made aware that the Government’s Technical Director for the asbestos removal project, Mr Walter Willis, had disclosed that no testing will be done to establish that the other buildings would be safe to operate in.The buildings of most concern, he had noted, Cheap Jerseys Online, were the Faculty of Technology, the Bursary, the Law Department and the Personnel Department, which according to him were not sealed off during the asbestos removal process.Mr Sankies disclosed yesterday though that he was informed that the Vice Chancellor and a specially selected team of officials are expected to visit the buildings possibly to inspect the current condition.And according to President of the University of Guyana Student Society and member of the Asbestos committee, Jason Benjamin, who is expected to be a part of the visiting team, there is still need for the walls and the floors of the buildings to be painted and lacquered to reduce any possible risk factors.Benjamin explained that at the moment the buildings are calm but noted that vibrations that could result when they are occupied could release suppressed fibres into the atmosphere, a situation which could prove to be life threatening.He added that even the pieces of asbestos materials which may have fallen in the open campus could also prove to be a risky situation.

A major sewerage block in Alberttown has been blamed on hundreds of condoms.The Guyana Water Incorporated (GWI) said it discovered in excess of 3, 000 used condoms at the corner of Sixth and Light Streets, Alberttown, on Wednesday.GWI said it received several complaints of sewage overflows and a sanitation team sent to investigate discovered an overflowing manhole at Albert Street.The sewage heap with the used condoms which was blamed for blocking the system in Alberttown earlier this week.“The sewage was practically gushing, ” said GWI’s Sanitation Supervisor Wayne Langford.“Immediately we noticed a number of articles including clothes, concrete, and a significant amount of condoms amongst the sewage.”Langford explained that GWI was then required to conduct a lengthy exercise to locate the source of the blockage underground.“We were fortunate enough to locate the huge blockage below Sixth and Light Streets before sunset. It was then that we noticed an enormous amount of condoms which clogged the system and affected the operations of the sensitive devices used to pump the sewage out of the city.”The supervisor revealed that the removal of the blockage required more than two hours of work by GWI’s Sanitation team.“The debris was so large in number that the entire team was called in to remove the massive amount of condoms – my team counted over 3000. Even the residents looking on were stunned to see the amount of condoms found in the blockage.  This situation is unacceptable since we have been appealing to residents to desist from flushing anything but human waste through their toilets.”Langford explained that it is a common occurrence to find large numbers of condoms at city hotels which experience sewage overflow. However the over 3000 condoms found at the Sixth and Light Street blockage is the largest on record.”Langford highlighted that the sewage overflows which resulted from the consistent flushing of condoms affected a pregnant woman in Albert Street and caused her to become ill.  He stated that several elderly persons and children were also affected by the unhygienic conditions.GWI emphasised that it has consistently educated residents of Georgetown about the damage caused by dumping garbage into the sewerage system via its weekly television broadcast, Jerseys NFL China, radio advisories and community outreach programs.  However, recently the number of overflows has exacerbated and according to Chief Executive (a.g) Nigel Niles, GWI will seek legal action against all customers found guilty of dumping garbage into the sewerage system.

A pump has been moved from Whim to Nancy to supply GWI with water while the NDIA will soon relocate a drainage pump to Cane Grove to re-circulate water.”For Region Five, one of Mora Point’s irrigation pumps is currently down and the authorities are working to repair it. The drainage pump at Pine Ground is being used to provide irrigation water while another pump is operating at the main canal supplying the Blairmont area.”The NDIA repositioned Pine Ground’s pump to provide irrigation for 2000 acres of land, 500 acres of which are rice. It has supplied 1350 litres of fuel for that pump.”The pump from Sussex Street has been relocated to Kuliserabo Creek to assist with irrigation for rice and cash crop farmers in Mahaica and Mahaicony.

Pumps have been moved from Eversham and Storage deployed to Sandaka and Link Canal to assist the Crabwood Creek area. Both pumps broke down over the weekend. One has since been repaired, while the other will soon be operable.”In West Watooka, Region Ten, inspections were done by NDIA engineers and recommendations were made to install a pump to provide water from the Demerara River into the canals, as well as an excavator to deepen canals.A pump will be moved from Herstelling, Cheap NFL Jerseys 2016, East Bank Demerara to facilitate this process.Since last year, authorities had warned of the dry spell that could run to mid-year.It had always been the practice to pump water from the conservancies when the rivers and canal levels fall to critical levels.
