–    Randy Morris is the ‘usual suspect’The name Randy Morris is on the tip of the tongue of almost every detective in town. It is called inRandy Morrisconnection with almost every high profile robbery/heist that takes place in the city and its environs, making him the ‘usual suspect’.But while Morris has been held countless times in connection with criminal activity and has been charged no less than 20 times for robbery under arms, he is yet to be convicted for any.This certainly says a lot for our police investigators or the system that is supposed to dispense justice.It is either that Morris is innocent of the crimes he has been accused of or the system is just not functioning as it is supposed to.Morris is presently before the court on an armed robbery charge having been fingered as one of the bandits who was photographed fleeing on a motorcycle after an Albouystown robbery – a photograph that was emblazoned on the front page of this newspaper.He was recently held for another high profile robbery on D’Urban Street in which Mahdia businessman Roger Hinds was shot and robbed.He has also been fingered in several high profile ‘hits’, including one on his friend Vibert Weeks called ‘Vibey’ , and is constantly on the police radar.But Morris has been forced to “lie low” in recent days, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys, for although he was held for several days for the Hinds matter and subsequently released without being identified, the police are still hunting him down with a view to charging him again.Morris believes that he has been made into such a high profile criminal that his life is now in jeopardy.“Whenever something goes down, the police always come looking for me, ” Morris said in an exclusive interview with this newspaper.But it’s not that Morris is any stranger to criminal activity, but his present position stems from a cardinal mistake he made earlier in his life.He admitted that he was involved in a criminal matter for which he paid a policeman to cover his tracks.“Since then he targeting me. Every time something happen, he coming and asking me fuh pay he. If I don’t, I ending up in de lock-up and getting charge, ” Morris said.There are even threats to his life from both policemen and persons who suspect him of being involved in criminal acts against them.Only recently he learnt about an alleged bounty on his head for a crime he maintains he did not commit.“Sometime in the lock-ups I would cry and even think about killing myself because of the harassment, ” said Morris, a father of two.He described one incident in the city when he reluctantly went into police custody for “a crime I didn’t know about” because the police had threatened to lock-up the mother of his children.Morris said that on several occasions he was placed on identification parades and was never “picked out” and yet the police proceeded to charge him.“My son is seven and he is growing up knowing that his father is in and out of the lock-ups, but I don’t want my daughter to grow up like that, ” he added.Morris also wants to protect his mother from the constant harassment she faces whenever the police barge into her house looking for him.Even the magistrates are apparently becoming fed up seeing him before them.The police view the situation as worrying and frustrating – that he is securing bail on every matter.They are convinced that most of the times they arrest Morris, he is guilty of the crime, but somehow they have not been able to put him away.This is certainly a concern for Morris who believes that one day he could pay the ultimate price at the hands of the police.A senior legal functionary when asked about the Morris case said that the way some police operate could be the reason for them not getting at least one conviction.“The police charge these people and then turn around and extort money from them. This is a criminal act and that is why we cannot get justice, ” the legal functionary told Kaieteur News in an invited comment.This is not the first time that Morris has spoken out, and for this he has incurred the wrath of some policemen who see him as a threat to the security of their jobs.“If a man like ‘Cobra’ been out on the road, they woulda call he name in every crime that tek place. I facing that harassment now. It’s not right, ” Morris stated emphatically.

Today, Guyana has risen to a middle income country.”The Minister urged students and members of the institution to assist in transforming the sector from standard livelihood to massive opportunities for entrepreneurship.“Guyana must not only be known as the breadbasket of the Caribbean, We are working to create an enterprise which will generate wealth and industrialise agriculture through innovative teaching.”Ramsammy challenged the students to be increasingly creative in fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship.“That’s the new brand of agriculturalist that we are creating at GSA, those that will be able to generate wealth…” the Minister added, as he announced that as an extra incentive it would mandatory that each student become a holder of driver’s licence before he/she graduates from GSA.The Minister also highlighted the importance of the young people and women in Agriculture as he made special mention of the first female principal of GSA, Ms Lynette Cunha, as one of the leading women in the sector.Chief Executive Officer of GSA, Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, Brian Greenidge, said that the school currently has courses in business as well Agriculture.

The CJIA expansion project will facilitate the efficient overnight transport of locally produced fruits and foods to overseas markets.”Benn also noted the significance of the Mangrove Restoration Project to reducing the cost of sea defence.In brief comments, Dr Chandra Madramootoo, Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture and Environmental Science at Mc Gill University in Canada, noted that his father crafted the first curriculum of GSAHe is son of the institution’s first head, Harry Madramootoo.Dr Madramootoo encouraged the students to continue to add to the development of agriculture and vowed to assist in creating scholarships for students, in honour of his father’s memory.Former St Lucian Minister of Agriculture and past student of GSA, Ignatius Jean, noted the humble beginnings of the institution and commended Government for its vision in setting it up.Mr. Jean is currently a representative of the Inter American Institute of Cooperation for Agriculture.The Guyana School of Agriculture currently facilitates 217 students, five of which are from St Vincent.

In recognition of the benefits derived from the Single Domestic Space (SDS) during the International Cricket Conference Cricket World Cup in 2007, Wholesale China Jerseys, Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Ministers of Transport are recommending its reintroduction.The Ministers made the recommendation at their just-concluded one-day Special Meeting of the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED) on Transportation held in St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Wednesday, according to CARICOM.Recommendations from the meeting will be presented to Heads of Government at their upcoming 34th Regular Meeting to be held in Trinidad and Tobago from 4-6 July at which transportation will receive special attention.The Ministers lamented that CARICOM nationals encountered unnecessary problems as they travelled across the region and this was not only limited to scant regard paid to the CARICOM Passport which entitles holders to an automatic six-month stay in member states.“The meeting recognized that there were challenges with respect to frequent security checks and co-operation between the regional airlines, among other things, which negatively affected the travelling public and had repercussions for business and tourism as well. The ministers also agreed that much work had to be done to improve customer service among Border Control officers in the region.”It was also agreed that the Conference of Heads of Government should be asked to revisit its decision to discontinue the inexpensive arm band system which facilitated hassle free regional travel during the World Cup.Among the features of the SDS were, freedom of movement for all domestic travellers and a Special Visa stamped at the first port of entry for travellers from outside the region to allow hassle free movement among the participating SDS states. Measures to support the initiative included an Advanced Passenger Information System (APIS).
